It has been a political tradition across the years to judge the performance of the head of a state, based on their work within the first 100 days of taking office. This has led to politicians running for election announcing and promising often ambitious goals that they would hope to achieve with in the first 100 days of getting elected.
The Republican nominee for President of the United States in the 2016 election, Donald J. Trump, unveiled his plan today for the first 100 days if he were to be elected as president. A possibility that seems to be getting more and more distant as the Election Day approaches.
His opponent the Democratic Party nominee former Secretary of State, Hillary R. Clinton is favoured to win the election. She’s ahead in the polls in terms of popular votes, as well as electoral colleges within key swing states.
Mr. Trump highlighted his plan in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania today. The plan focuses on scrapping international climate change deals, as well as begins the process of deporting over 2 million immigrants.
The Plan also proposes limiting the number of terms for members of congress, as well as proposes a ban on former white house employees becoming lobbyists.
Mr. Trump said that payments in regard to environmental deals would be scrapped and the revenue generated from the deals would be used to rebuild the infrastructure within the US.
The plan also promises to lower taxes, scrap trade deals, and vet immigrants rigorously while admitting them to the country. He also vowed to break up major media conglomerates, saying he would scrap the deal between the owners of CNN and AT&T. It is however unclear how the deal will be scrapped since a private business deal does not fall directly under the jurisdiction of the executive branch which he will head, if he’s elected President.
Apart from the plan Mr. Trump made comments about the allegations against him by 10 women. He maintained his previous position that the allegations were false and said that every woman had lied to hurt his campaign. He said that he will be suing every woman who had accused him of inappropriate behaviour as soon as his presidential campaign was over.
There are 17days left for the election and both the candidates will be travelling across the country to campaign. Majority of American people will vote on the 8th of November to decide who will become the 45th President of the United States.
The inauguration of the next President will happen on the 20th January 2017.
