DONALD TRUMP’S INITIAL PRESIDENTIAL PLAN

Whenever a president is elected, they have to sell what they are going to do that will improve the country. After Tuesday night’s shocking discovery, it was time to tap back into what he plans to do in the first 100 days as commander-in-chief.

The plan was released in October. The main parts of the plan dealt with imposing term limits on the Congress, restoring the rule of law, protecting American workers, and cleaning up Washington. Donald Trump went on to talk about introducing 10 pieces that would be used to repeal Obamacare with the help of Congress, encourage infrastructure investment, promote school choice, and funding the southern border wall.

Will It Work?

On Wednesday, Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader dealt calmly with Trump as he dissected the presidential plan. At the same time, he aggressively spoke against some of the ideas in the plan. When McConnell came across the proposal that involved imposing term limits on Congress, he quickly let it be known, “It will not be on the agenda, in the Senate.” McConnell has always been against the idea of term limits in Congress. Trump was supported by NPR’s Susan Davis, who went on to say “I would say we have term limits now. They’re called elections.”

When it came to repealing the Obamacare, McConnell shared the same thoughts and priority. He went on to add, “….pretty high item on our agenda.” He was also focused on establishing border security, but he refused to discuss the Senate’s immigration agenda any further. On a positive note, McConnell did add, “We look forward to working with him (Trump). I think most of the things that he’s likely to advocate, we’re going to be enthusiastically for.” This is a sign of the new president establishing a relationship with various parts of the government. It remains to be seen how this union will work itself out.
