President-elect Trump explains what his first 100 days in office will look like
In a video to the public, president-elect Donald Trump painted a picture of what could happen in his first 100 days in office.
He mentioned six key issues that people should expect to change right away; things on trade, energy, regulation, national security, visa programs and lobbying.
“On trade, I’m going to issue a notification of intent to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a potential disaster for our country. Instead, we will negotiate fair by lateral trade deals that bring jobs and industry back onto American shores,” Trump said. “On energy, I will cancel job-killing restrictions on the production of American energy, including shale energy and clean coal, creating many millions of high-paying jobs.”
He also discussed getting rid of regulations, wanting to protect against cyber attacks right away, investigating abuses of visa programs and imposing a five-year ban on lobbying.
Notably missing from his promises is his pledge to repeal the Affordable Care Act and his vow to build a southern border wall with Mexico.
Trump has yet to hold the traditional news conference that previous presidents-elect have done within days of winning on Election Day.
