Trump's 100 day plan, from the man himself:
If he can accomplish just the lobbying reform alone it would be an incredible achievement.
His environmental derailment efforts are of course a disaster but that's a whole other ball of wax.
There's a lot of good there, and there's a lot of scary stuff. I appreciate how he's going after sacred cows.
1. The lobby reform is long, long overdue. Jesus fuck is it overdue. I'll bet the SCOTUS overturns it though. "Money = free speech" case is still on the books.
2. I've been in favor of congressional term limits forever. LOL @ McConnell, who is not in favor.
3. If he can change defense spending to stop projects from having parts built in 40 states, I'd support that.
4. Rebuilding our infrastructure is sorely needed.
1. He's expanding the war on drugs. It has already failed, let's try something new.
2. Reducing regulations simply "because there are too many" is bad. Each regulation should be changed or eliminated based on analysis. We saw what happened after Glass-Steagall was repealed.
3. The environmental changes, pro fossil fuel stance, and withdrawing from climate change agreements.
4. The wall. LOL.
WAIT AND SEE:
1. Withdrawing from NAFTA and TPP. NAFTA has pretty much been a wash, and trade btw Canada, Mexico, and the USA has increased a 3x since it's introduction. Jobs have been both lost and created as a result. The rust belt was already rusting before it was passed. I oppose the TPP, but if it turned out like NAFTA, it wouldn't have had much of an effect either way.
2. Going after countries for currency manipulation. On the one hand, long overdue. On the other hand, a trade war could really hurt us.
3. I hope that by reducing government employees, they're not planning on replacing them with private contractors.
4. Rebuilding the military. We already have the largest most powerful military in the world. I'm hoping he means to change weapons procurement methodologies so we don't end up with over-expensive, troubled weapons systems like the F-35 or Zumwalt.
5. Tax reform. Depends on how he does it, but if he wants to rebuild both the nation's infrastructure and the military, how will he pay for it?
You missed the fine print. Everything proposed is subject to change on a whim. The Supreme Ruler reserves the right to make spontaneous decisions, and to enact revenge upon anyone who he feels insults him or disagrees with his policies.
