Seeds: The term “First 100-days” has grown to be a sort of benchmark for presidents after President Franklin D. Roosevelt used his first 100 days to make plans for the iconic New Deal. Since then, presidents are often judged by how productive their first 100 days in office are. This past November, President Donald Trump released his plan for his first 100 days of office.
Core: A few highlights of his plan include:
Impose term limits on Congress members.
Lots of restrictions on lobbyists (specifics here).
Withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (The TPP is a trade deal that was supposed to foster trade – kind of like the EU – more info here).
Push the Keystone Pipeline project forward (a controversial oil pipeline that would run from Canada to Nebraska, more info here).
Cancel several of President Obama’s executive actions (here).
Remove more than 2 million illegal immigrants.
Stop immigration from “terror-prone” regions.
Tax Cuts, as well as other tariff and infrastructure stuff (money stuff here).
Get rid of Common Core education (this leaves standards to local communities, i.e. the standards could differ from state to state or county to county.)
For all of his plan: here.
Skin: While many or all of these policies excite many people, as they hope for change after 8 years under President Obama, some have expressed concern about the way President Trump’s plans and executive actions affect immigrants, health care users, and the environment.
Leaves: Only time will tell what will happen in President-elect Trump’s first 100 days. Until then, tweet us @CoredNews what you think will come of his first 100 days; if you’re funny, we might retweet you :)
Food For Thought: What do you think will happen in President Trump’s first 100 days in office? Do you support his policies?
