MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Republican Gov. Scott Walker is telling Facebook followers the first thing he wants Donald Trump to do as president is start rescinding President Barack Obama’s executive orders.

Walker answered pre-selected questions during a live Facebook session Thursday afternoon. One questioner asked him what he wants Trump to do first when he enters the White House. Walker says he wants Trump to repeal a “wave” of Obama executive actions that he says put Wisconsin’s economy at risk, particularly restrictions on greenhouse gas emissions. He also says Trump shouls repeal Obama’s health care reforms and he wants the president to give more power to the states.

The governor also reiterated he has no interest in a position in Trump’s cabinet.
