- Trump's second full week was anything but dull
- President issues fewer executive orders but still dominates headlines
(CNN)As the curtains close on week two -- yes, it's only been that long -- of the Trump White House, there has been no shortage of big news stories. Here's a look at what's been dominating the news cycle.
'Monday night massacre'
'This is our little breakfast'
A first in two decades
That's not all
- A gunman stormed a mosque in Quebec City on Monday, with shooter Alexandre Bissonnette -- a right-wing Trump supporter -- killing six worshipers and injuring eight more.
- The Republican-led Senate rolled back the Stream Protection Rule, an Obama administration regulation aimed at curbing waste from coal mines from entering waterways but that Republicans complained was an onerous job killer in coal country, and the House voted Thursday to repeal an Obama-era regulation that required the Social Security Administration to disclose to the national gun background check system information about people with mental illness.
- A joint US-UAE raid on an al Qaeda compound in Yemen resulted in the death of US Navy SEAL Chief Petty Officer William "Ryan" Owens. Owens was fatally wounded in a firefight that saw three other US service members wounded and 14 al Qaeda fighters killed. Multiple US officials told CNN that an assessment of civilian casualties is still ongoing, which may include the 8-year-old daughter of Anwar al-Awlaki, the former al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula leader.
