‘My Day One is Gonna be Monday’: Trump to Take Weekend Off After Inauguration

donald-trump-twitteredited-650x460There have been a number of revelations from President-elect Donald Trump’s wide-ranging interview with the Times of London and Bild. Much discussion has already been devoted to Trump calling NATO “obsolete,” how he’ll keep his personal Twitter account open and his referring to Syrian refugees in Europe as “illegals.”

Well, one thing that slipped attention initially was that Trump is apparently not counting Saturday as his first day on the job as president.

Talking about why he thought Brexit happened, Trump said it was due to the need for strong borders and explained how he’d address that on his first day.

People don’t want to have other people coming in and destroying their country and you know in this country we’re gonna go very strong borders from the day I get in. One of the first orders I’m gonna sign – day one – which I will consider to be Monday as opposed to Friday or Saturday. Right? I mean my day one is gonna be Monday because I don’t want to be signing and get it mixed up with lots of celebration, but one of the first orders we’re gonna be signing is gonna be strong borders.

As Trump noted in his answer, he doesn’t want to get anything mixed up with the celebrations so would prefer to start fresh on the 23rd.
