Pool taken into Oval Office at 11:44 a.m. for POTUS signing of three
executive orders, including withdrawal of U.S. from Trans-Pacific
"We've been talking about this for a long time," said POTUS of TPP. It
is a "great thing for the American worker."
The second was a hiring freeze for federal workers. "Except for the
military," said POTUS.
The third dealt with Mexico City. Will update with specifics.
As pool was leaving, POTUS was asked question about lawsuits. He said
they were "without merit."
