- January 20, 2017: Laura Montez is sworn in as the 46th President of the United States. During her inauguration, Tibet is freed. While former President Selina Meyer did most of the work of the deal, Montez was given President as she was President when the deal came through.
Soon after winning the Senate vote on January 5, Montez announced that Andrew Doyle, Vice President under Selina Meyer, would become Secretary of State. The deal was orchestrated behind the scenes, as Doyle maneuvered the Senate vote in exchange for Secretary of State, as an act of revenge when Meyer offered Secretary of State to Republican congressman Paul Graves.
On January 19, MSNBC reported that Charlie Baird, a banker who briefly dated President Meyer in late 2016, was announced to become the Secretary of the Treasury.
