On Monday evening, President-elect Donald Trump gave his initial outline of what he hopes to accomplish in his first 100 days in office with a video posted to his transition team’s Facebook page. On top of his ever present refrain that he’ll “put America first,” Trump also briefly outlined his plant to pull out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, remove regulations on energy production, and “investigate all abuses of visa programs.” He also spoke on the importance of cyber security and protecting the American infrastructure.
“Whether it’s producing steel, building cars or curing disease, I want the next generation of production and innovation to happen right here, on our great homeland: America – creating wealth and jobs for American workers.”
Trump, who has been ensconced in Trump Tower since his presidential win, also spoke about rebuilding the American working class.
“These are just a few of the steps we will take to reform Washington and rebuild our middle class. I will provide more updates in the coming days, as we work together to make America great again for everyone, and I mean everyone.”
This video is Trump’s first address since his election night victory speech, and with this non-traditional route, he bypassed the requisite follow up questions by posting his comments in a video online. Between this and the meeting that he had with media heads today, he’s giving a clear message that he does not accept opposition.
