At the end of October, Donald Trump detailed what he intends to do during his first 100 days in the Oval Office.
He said that he intends to focus on three key areas: cleaning up corruption in Washington, protecting American workers and enforcing the law, reports NPR. He also announced intentions to repeal Obamacare, construct the famous U.S.-Mexico border wall and improve infrastructure, among other plans.
Intending to “clean up the corruption and special interest collusion in Washington, DC,” Trump said he would propose a Constitutional Amendment to subject Congress to term limits, shrink the federal workforce with a “hiring freeze” and institute bans and regulations on legislative and executive officials who become lobbyists.
Trump said that he would “protect American workers” by working to renegotiate or end NAFTA, withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, labeling China as “a currency manipulator,” end all restrictions on oil, “clean coal” and other energy sources with high carbon footprints, lift restrictions on the Keystone Pipeline and similar projects and “cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs.”
In order to “restore security and the constitutional rule of law,” Trump vowed to “cancel every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum and order issued by President Obama,” nominate a replacement to Justice Antonin Scalia, “begin removing the more than 2 million criminal illegal immigrants from the country and cancel visas to foreign countries that won’t take them back,” suspend immigration from “terror-prone regions,” employ “extreme vetting” on those who are allowed in and increase the police force.
Trump also plans to implement tax reductions “designed to grow the economy four percent per year” and change income brackets.
Regarding education, Trump intends to allocate money toward giving “parents the right to send their kid to the public, private, charter, magnet, religious or home school of their choice.” He will also end the common core, give individual schools more of a say in the curriculum and make “college more affordable.”
Trump also plans to crack down on undocumented immigration by establishing mandatory minimum prison sentences for those who enter the country after being deported as well as upping the penalties for overstaying on a visa.
Many congressional Republicans have vowed to work with Trump and “try and get on the same page” legislatively, notes the New York Times.
