“…[D]ay 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,” Trump said, according to a transcript of the interview.

Trump will be inaugurated on Friday and is expected to attend celebrations that night.

The idea of the president-elect waiting until Monday until he starts issuing orders got attention on Twitter.

The president-elect previously pledged to take sweeping, unilateral actions on Jan. 20 to roll back many of President Obama’s policies and set the course for his administration.
