Yeah, as if Congress would even humor the prospect of imposing term limits on itself. I don't see them going for the finance stuff either, especially since the Republicans have control over both Houses. Other than that impossible stuff his anti-corruption talk is a bunch of empty rhetoric with no actual plan for how he'll do it. Talk is cheap.

Also:

American Energy and Infrastructure Act
Leverages public-private partnerships, and private investments through tax incentives, to spur $1 trillion in infrastructure investment over ten years. It is revenue neutral.


Okay bro, you're going to cut taxes and spend a trillion on infrastructure while still keeping it revenue neutral. Never mind everyone, Trump has literal sorcery in his arsenal, so he won't have any trouble getting the rest of this plan done.

Well that's the point that i've brought up in the thread what he wants to do versus what congress wants might not always coincide. So he either plays ball and capitulate or compromise with them or risk being stone walled. Well another likely hood is that congress will agree with him on every matter not very likely but its a possibility.





Well at least the climate change money is going to positive things A state like Michigan and terrible inner cities will appreciate that. But yeah climate change is real as you and me.

Those term limits are not going to happen and i would love to see Trump try but he won't because he needs Congress to be on his side.

Only thing I think he can do that I agree with unilaterally is withdrawl from the TPP. I would love to see him force term limits and a timed ban on moving from Congress to lobbying, but I don't know how that can happen when Congress has to approve of it. Especially a Republican-controlled Congress, and in a Presidency built on dismantling executive orders made by Obama, since that would be his only avenue to move forward with those kind of ideas. Still, if he does it, that'd be excellent.

I think this point, "School Choice And Education Opportunity Act", has some potential as well. Needs some clarification and tweaking to avoid our education system becoming entirely privatized, which is the immediate risk I see, but I like a lot of what is in there. Additionally, although I think his reasons are misguided, I don't like the U.N. and if he would be willing to address and solve the Flint Water Crisis as well as the droughts in California, that would be nice. I think there is a serious risk of him ruining any minimal progress America has made on the environmentalist front, but to be honest, it's not like America was doing much to begin with. Tit for tat, if he'd sincerely redirect the money to improving and upgrading water infrastructure, I'd consider it a net positive.

I pretty much hate the rest of it, but that is to be expected.

While I actually do agree with him on kicking everyone with money out of politics and lobbying there are some other points on here that are rather alarming.



* THIRD, a requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated;


This one is dangerously idiotic.



* FIRST, I will announce my intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205

* THIRD, I will direct my Secretary of the Treasury to label China a currency manipulator


These two will most certainly rock the economy.



* FIRST, cancel every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum and order issued by President Obama


So, none of them then. Well, that's good at least.



* THIRD, cancel all federal funding to Sanctuary Cities


Good luck convincing Washington, DC to cut federal funding to Washington, DC. >.>


I'm not touching the economic disaster that would be the wall or the pointless "rebuilding our military". Also this is a seriously tall order for the first 100 days.

Some how I don't think antagonizing our biggest trading partners by scraping NAFTA (our exports to Canada alone are $280 billion helped in part by low or no tariffs) and labeling China a currency manipulator is going to help create jobs, quite the opposite actually. Nor is trying to restrain American multi-national corporations. It's definitely not going help the blue collar workers feeling threatened by globalization.

The send illegals to prison for 2 years might be a problem. Alot of mexicans will still get better medical and food in prison, and im not sure federal prison can copy with millions of new inmates.

Well, Clinton also promised to renegotiate NAFTA.

I might've hoped we had all read the 100 day plans put forward by Trump and Clinton, as well as their other promises, before the election. It's still good to look over it now, of course.

Hahahahahahahaha.


This will be fun, but I doubt it will happen.



As always: a terrible idea. This would basically freeze the post office which is actually loved. Government jobs are jobs too. Don't forget when this backfires.



A horrible idea that will hopefully be removed with great vigor. You want clean air and water, which fossil fuel companies despise, which are the primary owners of the GoP.



Everyone hates this, but a five year ban seem to be in questionable effectiveness.



Seems hypocritical coming from a man with alleged Russian connections. I really have no idea what this means to our territories, or any vauge understanding of how global politics works.



Wait. Isn't this already banned, and something that the Trump campaign was caught doing but was literally ignored.


Except Postal workers and stuff... This could impact my mother harshly.



I wonder how this will go, but something that was on the table for Bernie too...



Something everyone reviles. Backlash unknown.



Businesses will hate you, and way too direct. May end in conflicts with China.



Child labor. Mandatory improvements to QoL for said factories used by US companies. I doubt any of that will be the approach.


And ruin water and air quality. I am biased against the continued use of fossil fuels over green energy sources like nuclear, wind, and solar power. We have to switch.


That help five to fifteen people and none of that oil is for the USA, btw.



Definitely. Hate. You. May you only get four years.


uh-huh...


Because of the Republican blockade in the house and senate.



Gay marriage and rights in maybe 50 years


This is something that I don't actually know about in the slightest.



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCUW9H3rt_A



Back to denying the Jewish refugees era.



Tax simplification has been need to be done, but this is a mess that I don't have a lot of knowledge in.


It sound nice, but does this actually happen.



It would be easier to just increase the educational budget for public schools and tell the anti-science people to fuck off, IMHO. There are way too many problematic education practices in some of these alternative schools.



Oh. My. God.That is going to be a disaster.


We could use that to snake in UHC, but this will probably put the burden on the people and make funds smaller.


See Mythbusters and the Mongols. This will not help anyone and endanger the economy. Can we please stop worshiping the god of walls before we entomb ourselves to die in stagnation and self-destruct.



Has been on the down turn for decades, but you'll have plenty of it with the KKK.


Worthless security theater and more jets that the military doesn't need, but gets every year. They don't need jets. They need better pay for serviceman and treatment for veterans.



This is too far gone and can only be curved. See the US military being treated like mercenaries during the coal miner union protests, and that the senate were heavily controlled by corporate and big oil (a huge pain, btw) by the turn of the 1900's.


I'll most likely vote "no" on the vast majority of this, and donate money to environmental groups. Especially, the fossil fuel stuff, or well everything. And, definitely that federal jobs freeze. I have no confidence in this presidency producing anything good except hopefully a distaste in the GoP led government. It's doubtful though.

Edit: And, not much on the issues of LGBT and reproductive rights so far, which really worries me in the coming years. He's definitely going to push them in because of Pence (Satan)...
