Trump outlines plans for first 100 days in office

USA

Donald Trump has released a video message outlining his policy plans for his first 100 days in office.

The President-elect’s used the video to outline what his policies in certain keys areas such as trade, energy, jobs and immigration would look like in his first three months.

“On energy,” he said, “I will cancel job-killing restrictions on the production of American energy, including shale energy and clean coal, creating many millions of high paying jobs”

His video message was however silent on the two main issues that were at the heart of his campaign; repealing Obamacare and building a wall along the border with Mexico.

He however vowed to stop visa fraud and create a plan to counter cyber attacks.

“On national security, I will ask the Department of Defence and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to develop a comprehensive plan to protect America’s vital infrastructure from cyber attacks and all other forms of attacks.”

Trump also said he would cancel environmental restrictions put in place by President Obama.

The measures are seen as fairly straightforward inside Washington as they do not require congressional approval.
