Exclusive: Top 10 Agendas of Donald Trump for America! View Full Report
Donald Trump sent a strong message to the United States and all across the globe when voters assured his longshot campaign and made him victorious over his arch Democratic rival Hillary Clinton which made him 45th President of United States.
With strong slogans like “draining the swamp” and “making America great again,” the question arises what does the billionaire has in his bags for the country? The following is Top 10 lists of agendas Trump has for the United States:
1. Build a Wall and make Mexico bear it!
Trump announced while announcing his candidacy that he promises
"to build a great, great wall on our southern border" and "have Mexico pay for that wall," and reportedly called it time and again.
This is one of the agenda that people from states has faith on and believe they will see it happen actually.
2. Ban Muslims from entering the United States:
The conclusions to shootings in San Bernardino in California were huge as Trump also called for
"a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on."
The very next day Trump again changed his words as he said it wouldn’t apply to all the Muslims. Moreover, in May, Trump told the NY times the ban would be in action in his first 100 days in the office. But again changed his words on Fox News saying it was just a suggestion. Then again he tweeted that, to suspend immigrants from "nations tied to Islamic terror."
In my speech on protecting America I spoke about a temporary ban, which includes suspending immigration from nations tied to Islamic terror. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2016
3. Bringing manufacturing (jobs) back:
Trump said in a speech on February 9, 2016, that he is going to be the greatest jobs president that God ever created. Moreover, he spoke on June 28 in a speech about the economy.
"I am going to withdraw the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (and) I’m going tell our NAFTA partners that I intend to immediately renegotiate the terms of that agreement to get a better deal for our workers,"
he further said;
"I will use every lawful presidential power to remedy trade disputes, including the application of tariffs."
4. Impose tariffs on goods made in Mexico and China:
Hal Shapiro, who is an attorney that specializes in international trade practice, highlighted Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 and it reads that it gives the president of United States the power to impose retaliatory tariffs on various countries those who violate trade agreements or are engaged in unfair trade practices. But Shapiro also said that he cannot even think of "a single instance" where an American company that offshores is considered an unfair trade practice by the foreign country.
But those policies are unfair as it violates international trade rules. But Trump is yet to propose it to WTO.
5. Renegotiate or withdraw from the North American Free Trade Agreement and Trans-Pacific Partnership:
Donald Trump has regularly criticized TPP and NAFTA hitting to Clinton as well as its consequences on job losses. Although Trump has the power to withdraw United States from North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). But it would result in his policy as the United States wouldn’t be manufacturing more jobs in the country as leverage works in both directions.
6. ‘Full repeal of Affordable Care Act-Obamacare’ and replace it with a market-based alternative:
Trump’s appeal to repeal Obamacare and replace it with a suitable market-based alternative is one of the popular policy among fellow Republicans. But there need to be huge majorities in Congress for that appeal.
Although Obamacare is a law, Trump believes that it will make health care more affordable to the people and also improve the quality.
7.Renegotiate the Iran deal:
Trump has also promised to renegotiate the Iran deal and even though Iran said that it wouldn't renegotiate the issue.
“When I am elected president, I will renegotiate with Iran — right after I enable the immediate release of our American prisoners and ask Congress to impose new sanctions that stop Iran from having the ability to sponsor terrorism around the world,” Trump said on September 8, 2015.
8.Leave Social Security as it is:
Trump has also said that voters from the United States like Social security and should be left as it is. Moreover, Trump also promised to let alone benefits intact and retirement age.
"There’s no way a Republican is going to beat a Democrat when the Republican is saying, 'We’re going to cut your Social Security’ and the Democrat is saying, 'We’re going to keep it and give you more,’ " Trump said to House Speaker Paul Ryan in May 2016.
9. Cut Taxes:
Trump also proposed tax reforms under which everyone would get a tax cut. Trump plans to cut the deficit by $10 trillion at least although it factors in the economic growth of the nation. This would lead to making it difficult for Trump to keep his promise to keep Social Security.
10. ‘Bomb’ as well as ‘take the oil’ from ISIS:
United States has already begun to bombing oil assets under ISIS. As for how he would "take the oil," Trump told the Washington Post’s editorial board in March of 2016, and he added that he would "circle" and "defend those areas" with ground troops, but wouldn’t commit to a certain number.
It would be interesting to see if Trump would deliver on promises as the Wall and Muslims ban would be unrealistic. For that, we would have to wait for 45th President of United States to take the regime.
