now those protests for the president's visit have result in the many road closures and detours in center city. meisha johnson here to tell us what we need to know about getting around. >> our president trump has just landed. because of that you have to know about some closures. looking at penndot actually following right now 95 north, closed between the airport and the vine, then the vine westbound slows between 95 and the broad. this camera shot right here is 95 by the airport, like i said, penndot is actually following that motorcade right now. so we switch gears, show you delaware county, the five north at 452, guys, take a look at this, if you approach the airport, look at this traffic. if you can avoid this area moving up to the airport northbound on 95, anywhere on 95, i would do so right now. plus, just some pointers you certainly want to take into consideration today. closures, until 6:00 p.m. today, so this will affect our evening commute, as well. thirteenth street from chestnut to market, market street from 11th to juniper, 12th fret from chestnut to arch.

will that all pending regulations were to be frozen until they were proved by people directly by his administration or trump appointees. he scrapped transpacific partnership, big news, just few days ago. united states, it will be withdrawing from the transpacific partnership which former president obama negotiated with 11 other pacific nations. >> he's expected to actually talk to congress about that today. he wants to start bilateral trade negotiations with most of the countries in the transpacific partnership pact earlier, as you mentioned, trump moved to pull the us out of the 12 nation specific agreement, which he said would be damaging for american workers. trump says he wants to negotiate with countries individually. >> now tuesday the president issued a memorandum, that prohibits government agencies from hiring any new employees effective january 22, order does not apply to military pernell and the head of any executive departments, they exempt any positions, that was
taken, also days ago, he has -- there was some controversial decisions regarding advancing the dakota access and keystone ex he will pipelines. there was expedited review and approval of remaining construction on there. that's probably going to be, you know, in the news over the next few days, as well. >> so a lot of controversy. you can see, a loft lawmakers optimistic, to hear from the new president, pick his brain, set out this new agenda on the right side of your screen, you see live picture now of the loews hotel and on the left side of course air force one awaiting the president's arrival. >> wonder what's taking them so long. not like he has to get his baggage or anything? i always wonder what's going on on the plane at this point. but as we've been talking about, even this morning, during our morning show, center city a place that you want to avoid if you don't have to be here in town right now. >> absolutely. >> whole entire area around the loews hotel, hi, high security there, as well. it is affecting mass transit. of course as joe spoke few

c'mohappy birthday! i survived a heart attack. i'm doing all i can to keep from having another one. and i'm taking brilinta. for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin. no more than one hundred milligrams as it affects how well it works. brilinta helps keep my platelets from sticking together and forming a clot. brilinta reduced the chance of another heart attack. or dying from one. it worked better than plavix. don't stop taking brilinta without talking to your doctor since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily, or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers, a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding,

>> president trump about to arrive at the loews hotel in center sit. >> i await willing the motorcade to arrive for the gop congressional retreat. top republicans from across the country here to discuss goals in congress and the new administration, you can see a lot of law enforcement out there waiting for his arrival. >> okay, yes, that's the loews hotel looking across the street over at reading terminal area. we go to joe holden right now over near city hall. we know there have been a lot of protests, gathering in
morning, to voice their concerns about the trump presidency, good afternoon, joe. >> good afternoon, we are watching this march step-off here. we are right at market and 15th streets. philadelphia police characterize this as very peaceful. they've been gathering for the last hour and a half over at pain plaza. they just left now. and are making their way down, seems, they might be turning at market street. their signs are many. most have been to president, many of the signs here have seen about not rolling back the affordable care act. so several hundred, at least, perhaps approaching a thousand now, they're still streaming off the steps of the payne plaza the commissioner spoke within the hour ... good shape
... >> i think we're having a little problem with joe's signal there. again, he's right across from city hall, and as he was mentioning, many of the protesters are concerned about president trump's first executive order on inauguration day, which involved minimizing the economic burden of the affordable care act. what happened was the order allowed the secretary of health and human services and heads of other departments and agencies to wave or delay the implementation of any affordable care act provisions that would impose a financial burden, or any state or regulatory burden, on individuals. so this was, i think, what many people feel is the beginning of the dismantling of obamacare, the affordable care act. >> you heard joe say about a thousand people there today, last night, there were huge crowds, thousands of people, you know, voicing their concerns to the republican lawmakers, and now president trump as he makes his way into center sit. >> i we go now to greg argos, who is standing by live at the loews hotel waiting for the
president's arrival. good afternoon again greg. >> good afternoon there jim and jan. like joe mentioned, there are a lot of protesters coming here towards market street. right now in front of the low hotel you can see this is a very secure area not one person other than law enforcement, state, federal, secret service here awaiting president trump's arrival. he is expected to arrive here in his motorcade any minute. you can see normally this section of the city during lunch hour, which it is right now, extremely busy right across the street from the septa center of course, but as you can see here, just awaiting game. as the president's motorcade is expected to arrive here. >> house and send sat at noon, that of course pushed back little bit. which might mean that vice president pence, 2:00 p.m., joint session, is also delayed. but the president expected to arrive here in center city,
normally a bustling time right now, but you can see, a live look at the loews hotel, very quiet, but very, very secure right now, as the secret service, federal officials, have this entire area locked down. the president's motorcade expected to arrive here any moment, of course, we will show you live pictures as soon as that happens. but, right now, just waiting for president donald trump to arrive here at the loews hotel for the gop retreat. send it back to you guys in the studio. >> where are you? are you like in the fed ex store across the street? usually when the president comes to visit the press is right there. but you're actually way across the way. >> that is the president, like you mentioned, jim, expected to arrive here. >> at the loews hotel, it is pretty quiet. just philadelphia police, and
federal state and secret service, law enforcement officers here, securing the area, as the president's motorcade makes its way here to center sit. >> i empty streets, but secure streets. reminiscent of when the pope was here when all of the streets kind of cleared out. >> exactly, but i think very interesting the press is being kept so far away. thank you, greg, we will be checking in with you in a little bit. quick note, staying with our coverage when president trump speaks at the presidential retreat, we will bring it back to you live. why young and the restless and the bold and the beautiful will be simulcast on sister station the "cw philly", so you can see them there in their entirety without interruption. >> now again, president donald trump is about to arrive at the loews hotel in center city, you mention, greg mentioned, a couple of time, schedule of events, that president was supposed to speak at noon. >> here is shot of the protesters around city hall, you see city hall in the background there, they seem to have been marching near the
