Trump's First 100 Days



From Donald Trump:
On the first day of Trump's term in office, he states that his administration "will immediately pursue the following" measures. The first six are "to clean up the corruption and special interest collusion in Washington, DC": 
FIRST, propose a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress. 
SECOND, a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce the federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health). 
THIRD, a requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated. 
FOURTH, a ve-year ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service. 
FIFTH, a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government. 
SIXTH, a complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections. 
Trump then proposes seven actions to protect American workers: 
FIRST, I will announce my intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205. 
SECOND, I will announce our withdrawal from the Trans-Paci c Partnership. 
THIRD, I will direct the Secretary of the Treasury to label China a currency manipulator.   
FOURTH, I will direct the Secretary of Commerce and U.S. Trade Representative to identify all foreign trading abuses that unfairly impact American workers and direct them to use every tool under American and international law to end those abuses immediately. 
FIFTH, I will lift the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars’ worth of job-producing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal. 
SIXTH, lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward. 
SEVENTH, cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to x America’s water and environmental infrastructure. 
The contract then outlines five actions "to restore security and the constitutional rule of law": 
FIRST, cancel every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum and order issued by President Obama. 
SECOND, begin the process of selecting a replacement for Justice Scalia from one of the 20 judges on my list, who will uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution. 
THIRD, cancel all federal funding to sanctuary cities. 
FOURTH, begin removing the more than two million criminal illegal immigrants from the country and cancel visas to foreign countries that won’t take them back. 
FIFTH, suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur. All vetting of people coming into our country will be considered “extreme vetting.”

Going back to Trump's announcement I've been bothered by the concern that a Trump Presidency would resemble Arnold's tenure as Governor of California: A vast and ambitious overreach of his election mandate that quickly imploded and left him a Poodle of the legislature willing to do anything to get re-elected.

Saying that, I hope Trump stays within his mandate and concentrates initially on those areas where he only needs to enforce existing law. Immigration and border control are already in that bag. There are many other areas of excessive executive overreach that can be effectively brought to heel.

The only ally Trump has for the next two years are the people who voted for him last week. Everyone and everything else will be aligned against him, he will go into office facing the greatest headwinds since Lincoln. God bless him and good luck.

I agree with what you write here. He faces huge opposition. As he has said, the elites have trillions of dollars at stake.

Good news is, he seems to understand the immensity of the opposition, and he is pretty wily about getting his own way when he wants it. And the process by which he accomplishes his goals is one of negotiation, using all tools at his hand. For instance, one of the things Trump is expert at doing is fomenting public opinion waves and using that momentum to win his hand in negotiation.

IMO, that's how he won the election.

But being elected is not the same thing as getting the necessary legislation done to accomplish the tasks he has set for himself.

We shall see.

Trump's philosophy: begin negotiations from the most extreme position.

IMO, we all need to read The Art of the Deal and Crippled America. I have the audio version of the latter but have never read the former.
