Trump promises to be a Packed ‘Day One’ agenda


President-elect Donald Trump has pledged a busy day of inauguration of the President in front of him-between the swearing in and the inaugural balls, he, to some of the “big league” promotions, as part of a day, An agenda that set the tone for his presidency.

Incoming presidents often represent a high level of objectives for your first day in the office, with mixed results. President Obama promised to shut down Guantanamo Bay at the beginning of his presidency, the detention center remains open, albeit with far fewer occupants.

What Trump says that he is going to do-and in fact, — can also be different. But here’s an overview of what can be the trump card in store for his first day.


Trump’s presidential campaign centered on illegal immigration. It is perhaps not surprising that many of his “first day” promises fall under the immigration banner.

During the campaign, he outlined a series of steps, he was able to immediately, largely with Executive power.

He promised repeatedly to eliminate “every unconstitutional executive order” — refers in particular to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred action for parents of Americans (DAPA), which brought the approval of a legal status to illegal immigrants to the U.S. as children, or the children of citizens or legal residents.

In addition, he has promised not to suspend immigration from terror-threatened regions, where the testing is performed properly. And he vowed that if the State Department “to suspend immediately the Syrian refugee resettlement programme”, and develop a plan for a safe zone in the region.

Trump also says he wants to ask Congress to pass “Kate’s Law” – after Kate Steinle, who was killed in 2015, to ensure of illegal immigrants, criminal aliens convicted of illegal re-entry received “strong mandatory minimum sentences.” In a speech in Gettysburg, Pa., in October, he promised to tear down the state support of so-called “sanctuary cities” on his first day.

In a transitional phase video, in November, he has also promised to direct the Department of labor to investigate “all abuses of the visa programs, under the American worker” on his first day in office.

His most famous campaign promise — a wall on the southern border — An action that was supposedly planned for the day. In a speech in September, in Phoenix, Ariz., Trump said on his first day, “we are working on it, an impenetrable, physical, large, powerful, beautiful southern border wall.” Although trump is still vowing always to build the wall, it is unclear what he was actually on the first day.

He also promised that the United States begin the deportation of about 2 million criminal illegal immigrants in the country-but even here it is unclear what he could do on his first day.

“Day, my first hour in the office, these people are gone,” he said.


Trump’s website says that he “will ask Congress to immediately provide that a full repeal of ObamaCare” on the first day.

To an extent, Congress already has the vote begun, with the first procedure, replace step this week to set the stage for a repeal/ -. However, it will almost certainly be after Jan. 20 in front of the Congress may provide, on a “full repeal.”

Trump said Wednesday of his press conference, you get to replace a complete plan, and replace the law is approved, according to his HHS candidacy.

Regulatory and trade

In a speech in September in Greenville, S. C., Trump said he wants to “direct begins to identify every Agency in the government of all the wasteful, job-killing regulations,” on his first day.

He also said that he intends to, according to the “vital energy infrastructure projects like the Keystone Pipeline to move forward.”

Trump has promised that the matter of an instant message that his administration intends to make use of the Trans-Pacific nership. He said he will also inform you about the NAFTA partners, of its intention to renegotiate the offer.

As for the other deals he has promised to “cancel billions in payments to the U. N. climate change programs, and use the money to fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure.”

He also promised in its November transition video that he “formulate a rule that says, for each new regulation, two old regulations have to be abolished.”


Trump says that he is the convening of a day, A meeting of his generals and instruct them a plan for victory over ISIS within 30 days.

In his November video, he said, he will ask you to develop the Ministry of defence and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, a comprehensive plan for the defence of the American infrastructure from cyber-attacks “and all of the other attacks.”

Backing up his tough rhetoric on China, he has to declare an oath to the country a currency manipulator on the first day as well.


As part of his plan, “draining the swamp,” he laid the first plan of the day in Gettysburg, Pa., in October, in which he said, he wants to:

  • To impose, propose an amendment to the Constitution limits on all members of Congress
  • Place a hiring freeze on all Federal workers (except the military, public health and public safety)
  • The imposition of a five-year ban on senior officials always lobbyists after leaving the government
  • A way of life, impose a long time ban on senior officials to lobby for a foreign government
  • Ban foreign lobbyists from raising money for the American elections

In addition to these measures, during a Demonstration last January, he promised to get rid of gun-free zones, would not although it is not clear how it do it.

All in all, is the trump card, the first-day-promises to go down as some of the most ambitious, elect a President. How many of these he is able to do, Jan. 20 — in contrast to the later remains in its first 100 days and beyond-to be seen.

As trump has said: “It’s going to be a very busy first day.”
