President-elect Donald Trump plans to repeal a raft of President Barack Obama's executive actions in his first day in office, Trump's incoming White House press secretary said Sunday.
Members of the transition team are meeting this week to discuss what actions the incoming president will undertake on day one, a source told CNN Monday.
He didn't specify which executive actions Trump will repeal.
However, Trump has long been critical of Obama's moves on immigration, energy regulation and foreign policy, and could look for ways to undo those and other actions.
Spicer also said Trump will begin reforms intended to "bring a new brand to Washington" with a restriction on members of his administration becoming lobbyists for a period of five years after they leave Trump's government.
"It's very forward-thinking," Spicer said. "What we've had in the past is people who have looked in the rearview mirror. This time, we're thinking forward. If you want to serve in a Trump administration, you're going to serve this country, not yourself."

Apparently he has threatened to slap them with massive taxes unless they stop manufacturing in Mexico.
While it's not going to win him any friends in Mexico,
I am sure the US workers that have been f#cked over the last two decades give a crap, let Mexico worry about it's own manufacturing plants.. When you rely on another country for your wealth and profit you are in their pocket.. Mexico I am sure can find something domestic for the plants to do and the US needs to rebuild from the inside.

That`s what scares the corporations the most, they are scared that the younger generation will find out what the older generation already knows, that American based corporations can pay a living wage and still make profits.
corporations have young americans convinved that the best jobs that America can offer are burger flipping jobs and minimum wage jobs.

Source or it didn't happen.
Edward’s son, Paul, who was the firm’s accountant, still remembers the amount of that bill more than 30 years later: $83,600. The reason: the money never came. “That began the demise of the Edward J. Friel Company… which has been around since my grandfather,” he said.
Donald Trump often portrays himself as a savior of the working class who will "protect your job." But a USA TODAY NETWORK analysis found he has been involved in more than 3,500 lawsuits over the past three decades — and a large number of those involve ordinary Americans, like the Friels, who say Trump or his companies have refused to pay them.
