  • Executive orders: Subjects include trade, immigration, government hiring, Obamacare and a lobbying ban, as Axios noted yesterday.
  • High-profile meetings: Top executives at 9 a.m. today to discuss manufacturing, and British PM Theresa May on Friday.
  • Cabinet votes: Mike Pompeo, slated to head the CIA, should get a vote today. White House officials expect at least three more Cabinet nominees — Ben Carson, Nikki Haley and Rick Perry — to be voted on by the end of the week, per the WSJ. And while Tillerson may not get a vote this week, Graham and McCain are now on board.
