During an October speech in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, Donald Trump laid out a 100-day plan in which he listed measures he would pursue immediately after taking office. When the plan was released, the news was drowned out by whichever scandal was at the forefront of the news cycle.
But now that Donald Trump is actually going to be the next president of the United States of America, people are paying a little more attention.
The measures fall under three broad banners: cleaning up government corruption, protecting the American worker, and restoring security and the constitutional rule of law.
His first measure to “clean up government” involves imposing term limits on members of Congress. This has come under heavy opposition within his own party. Senator Mitch McConnell, the majority leader, made it quite clear that he was strongly opposed to the idea. The measures also involve restricting government lobbying, and a requirement that, for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated.
To protect the American worker, Trump plans to negotiate withdrawal from NAFTA, withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (“TPP”), remove environmental protection laws that restrict oil and natural gas production, and cancel billions of dollars in payments to U.N. climate-change programs (and use the money instead to fund infrastructure).
Lastly, to improve security and the rule of law, Trump plans to remove more than two million illegal immigrants and cancel visas to foreign countries that won’t take them back. Alongside that, he plans to suspend all immigration from terror-prone regions (a variant of his “total ban on Muslims”).
The repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. “ObamaCare”) is also a big part of Trump’s early plans. This could involve a complete overhaul of ObamaCare, but it could also just be a repackaging of the same thing under the new name of DonaldCare.
Trump will take office with a Republican-controlled Congress and Senate. The Republicans have not had this kind of control since the 1920s. For as long as he’s got the support of his own party, his 100-day plan will be well on its way to becoming policy.
Let’s look at the odds he follows through with some of his grander plans, along with some of the more far-fetched notions that dominated his campaign. (Hello border wall??)
