The Republican-controlled Senate, voting along party lines, has begun its repeal of Obama's signature legislation, the Affordable Care Act. It has revealed no plan for what will replace the ACA.

What care they for earlier Trump tweets?

One Democratic senator, Chuck Schumer (D-NY), does. He has warned Trump against relying so much on Twitter.

"With all due respect, America cannot afford a Twitter presidency. Many Americans are afraid, Mr. President-elect, that instead of rolling up your sleeves and forging serious policies...that, for you, Twitter suffices."

Schumer added, according to The Wall Street Journal, that if Trump attempts to adopt the "time-worn policies which benefit the elites, the special interests, corporate America -- not the working man and woman -- his presidency will not succeed."

Schumer also took aim at Trump's cabinet appointments:

"...too many of his cabinet picks support the same, hard-right, doctrinaire positions that many in the Republican Party have held for years, policies that the American people have repeatedly rejected."

How will the Democrats handle the cabinet confirmations?

Politico reports that Senate Leader Mitch McConnell will take up six Cabinet-level confirmation hearings on one day, January 11. The jammed list includes attorney general, secretary of state, CIA director, education secretary, homeland security chief and transportation secretary.

While Democrats worry about the cabinet, Trump has his own priorities. On Friday, January 6, our next president was bragging about his previous life on the television reality show, The Apprentice.

Trump's successor on the show, movie star and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, appeared on his first episode.

Time for a Trump congratulatory word to a successor?

Hardly. Remember this is Trump, whose daily focus is solely on himself. Two weeks to the day, before his January 20 presidential inauguration, Trump tweeted:

"Wow, the ratings are in and Arnold Schwarzenegger got 'swamped' (or destroyed) by comparison to the ratings machine, DJT."

"So much for being a movie star -- and that was season 1 compared to season 14. Now compare him to my season 1. But who cares, he supported Kasich & Hillary."
