Trump's to-do List.

I promise this is not a "gotcha" thread. I was thinking about some of the promises made during Trump's campaign, and jotted down some points that came to mind. Simply as a curiosity, and to later use as a check list, perhaps. If you want. If I want.

There were things Obama said he would do, and didn't get done completely because of obstructionism. If he really really tried to do something but couldn't because of obstructionism, I don't count it against him because he tried.

Consequently, the same will go for Trump. If he really tries to accomplish what he has promised, and is unable to push it through because of obstructionism, then he gets an A for effort, and we won't fault him or judge him.

Here is a list of things I noted during the campaign.

Get rid of Obamacare.
Get rid of ISIS, and he will "do it fast".
Resume torture.
Build a wall, and have Mexico pay for it.
Put Hillary Clinton in jail.
Deport 20 million illegal immigrants.
Total shutdown of Muslims entering the country.
End the Iran Deal.
Stop violence in Chicago.
....Appoint judges that will overturn Roe V Wade and the Same Sex Marriage SCOTUS ruling.... (as per Windwood, thanks)

That's all that came to mind at the moment. Please feel free to add, subtract, or comment.

Here Is What Donald Trump Wants To Do In His First 100 Days

* FIRST, propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress;

* SECOND, a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce 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 5 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.

On the same day, I will begin taking the following 7 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-Pacific Partnership

* THIRD, I will direct my 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 fix America's water and environmental infrastructure

Additionally, on the first day, I will take the following 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 Constitution of the United States

* THIRD, cancel all federal funding to Sanctuary Cities

* FOURTH, begin removing the more than 2 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.

Next, I will work with Congress to introduce the following broader legislative measures and fight for their passage within the first 100 days of my Administration:

Middle Class Tax Relief And Simplification Act. An economic plan designed to grow the economy 4% per year and create at least 25 million new jobs through massive tax reduction and simplification, in combination with trade reform, regulatory relief, and lifting the restrictions on American energy. The largest tax reductions are for the middle class. A middle-class family with 2 children will get a 35% tax cut. The current number of brackets will be reduced from 7 to 3, and tax forms will likewise be greatly simplified. The business rate will be lowered from 35 to 15 percent, and the trillions of dollars of American corporate money overseas can now be brought back at a 10 percent rate.

End The Offshoring Act. Establishes tariffs to discourage companies from laying off their workers in order to relocate in other countries and ship their products back to the U.S. tax-free.

American Energy & Infrastructure Act. Leverages public-private partnerships, and private investments through tax incentives, to spur $1 trillion in infrastructure investment over 10 years. It is revenue neutral.

School Choice And Education Opportunity Act. Redirects education dollars to give parents the right to send their kid to the public, private, charter, magnet, religious or home school of their choice. Ends common core, brings education supervision to local communities. It expands vocational and technical education, and make 2 and 4-year college more affordable.

Repeal and Replace Obamacare Act. Fully repeals Obamacare and replaces it with Health Savings Accounts, the ability to purchase health insurance across state lines, and lets states manage Medicaid funds. Reforms will also include cutting the red tape at the FDA: there are over 4,000 drugs awaiting approval, and we especially want to speed the approval of life-saving medications.

Affordable Childcare and Eldercare Act. Allows Americans to deduct childcare and elder care from their taxes, incentivizes employers to provide on-side childcare services, and creates tax-free Dependent Care Savings Accounts for both young and elderly dependents, with matching contributions for low-income families.

End Illegal Immigration Act Fully-funds the construction of a wall on our southern border with the full understanding that the country Mexico will be reimbursing the United States for the full cost of such wall; establishes a 2-year mandatory minimum federal prison sentence for illegally re-entering the U.S. after a previous deportation, and a 5-year mandatory minimum for illegally re-entering for those with felony convictions, multiple misdemeanor convictions or two or more prior deportations; also reforms visa rules to enhance penalties for overstaying and to ensure open jobs are offered to American workers first.

Restoring Community Safety Act. Reduces surging crime, drugs and violence by creating a Task Force On Violent Crime and increasing funding for programs that train and assist local police; increases resources for federal law enforcement agencies and federal prosecutors to dismantle criminal gangs and put violent offenders behind bars.

Restoring National Security Act. Rebuilds our military by eliminating the defense sequester and expanding military investment; provides Veterans with the ability to receive public VA treatment or attend the private doctor of their choice; protects our vital infrastructure from cyber-attack; establishes new screening procedures for immigration to ensure those who are admitted to our country support our people and our values

Clean up Corruption in Washington Act. Enacts new ethics reforms to Drain the Swamp and reduce the corrupting influence of special interests on our politics.

On November 8th, Americans will be voting for this 100-day plan to restore prosperity to our economy, security to our communities, and honesty to our government.

This is my pledge to you.

And if we follow these steps, we will once more have a government of, by and for the people.

I appreciate the thorough list infolurker, thank you. I can get behind several of those, especially those pertaining to lobbyists and cleaning up DC/Congress. (Others of course, I find not so appealing.)

Looks like in 100 days he will be doing way more than Obama in 8 years.

To be candid, if he started out by simply reversing every executive action/executive order that Obama performed in order to do an end-run around congress.... we'd be off to a good start. Even IF some of some of Obama's ideas were one's I agree with (which there aren't any that come to mind), it's important to stay within the confines of the law/constitution.

Once he reverses all these, I hope he never, ever says, "I've got a pen and a phone."

#15 ... Find and hire the guy that makes those amazing taco bowls from my Trump Tower restaurant. Those were amazing...

Just turned on the news and they are discussing Trump's "to-do" list! Man. Exactly those words.

Here's those

1. Undo all Obama's executive orders. 248? I think. (first day)
2. Deport deport deport (said he will do this his first day in office) 11 million.
4. Repeal Obama Care
5. Appoint a special prosecutor for Clinton.
6. Get rid of federal employee dead weight
7. Ban all Muslims

These were things said on the campaign trail, and they showed the video snips with him actually saying them all.

About the wall, recently I've heard him say "we will build a wall, and Mexico will reimburse us for it.
I am hoping the "wall" is symbolic for stronger border control. Maybe "wall" is just a metaphor.

I bet the first thing he does is open up libel laws to make it easier to sue news organizations.

That's right, he did talk about that didn't he? He's already the most litigious President in history, and like the little energizer bunny he just keeps on going and going. When in doubt, SUE! When sued? COUNTERSUE!
