Trump Presidency: Policy Suggestions for the First 100 Days
A friend of OURS has some thoughts:
If I could advise Trump, I would say on the day of the inauguration, about an hour after the inauguration he should fly down to Texas where there will be a site ready for construction of the wall, and there would be a groundbreaking. Ivanka would feature prominently, wearing a short skirt, high heels, and a hard hat. Cranes would be in place, and construction would get under way on the great wall.
After that, he would fly back to D.C. for inauguration festivities in the evening.
I would leave Obamacare alone for a few months, with the exception that by executive order I would waive all tax penalties from the mandate for the upcoming tax season. Next year he can turn to Obamacare, but first he should act fast on his most politically popular issue, which is immigration.
The wall should go up by any means necessary.
Trump should take donations from the public to fund it if neccesary, and accept volunteer labor from Americans. A tab would be run, and Mexico would get the bill later. Americans will build it. I bet every Trump voter would give $100 for building the wall, which is 6 billion right there. It will take 4 times that, but it can easily be done with no appropriation.
Eminent domain should be used aggressively where needed, but really the military should just be deployed at the building sites, and it should be built 100 feet onto Mexico's side so there is no issue with private land ownership.
He should also go into cities and start a bunch of federal building projects. That would get enough democrats on board to have early and popular victories.
He should pick the absolute best, most Scalia-like justice available, and immediately get that person confirmed. There is broad GOP agreement on what makes a good SCOTUS justice, so that would get him early points with the GOP congress.
He should publicly encourage Obama to pardon Hillary, but if Obama does not pardon her he should announce that he is neither going to direct criminal charges nor stand in the way of any such, because he wants to move on, and wants the FBI and DOJ to become no longer tainted by politics. Same with the IRS, no more persecution of political enemies.
I would also bring in Mike Tyson to be kind of a sidekick/personal assistant. Tyson was not used at all in the campaign but he won anyway. Now it's time to solidify power.
Tyson might also make an excellent spokesperson for Trump at strategically important times. Cuz, who could argue with Iron Mike?
