A New President with New Plan
The 2016 Presidential Election took place just under a month ago and we are beginning to see what President-Elect Trump has planned for the first 100 days of his presidency. Trump’s campaign had proposed many policies that he wished to institute as law into the American judicial system. His largest promises include building a wall on our southern border and deporting all illegal immigrants, repealing Obamacare, and removing lobbyists from congress. Since the election President-Elect Trump has slightly shifted his stance on some of the issues. According to NPR’s coverage of his first 100 days plan he no longer plans to deport every single immigrant but only those who have committed violent crimes, which is believed to be roughly two million people. When planning his first 100 days Trump has said he will suspend or ban lobbyists in congress depending on who or what country they are lobbying for. During his campaign, Trump had made multiple remarks on how NAFTA was the,”Worst trade deal ever,” and that he would like to withdraw the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Not only this but he stated that he would direct the secretary of the treasury to label China as a currency manipulator, which means that the country’s government buys and sells foreign currency in exchange for their own currency, this is typically done to influence the exchange rate of that country. Also, Trump has spoken about his plans to not only repeal Obamacare, but to repeal all unconstitutional executive orders made by President Obama, keep in mind that is 261 executive orders thus far. He plans for his new healthcare plan to be available to all U.S. citizens despite preexisting conditions and will come at a reduced cost to those who need it.
