David Worland, Reporter


As Trump takes office today, the clock starts on his first 100 days. His plan named, “Donald Trump’s Contract With The American Voter,” Trump went on to say it, “…begins with restoring honesty, accountability and change to Washington.”

The first stage of Trump’s plans are, “…to clean up the corruption and special interest collusion in Washington, D.C.” His first plan includes creating a constitutional amendment, which puts term limits on all members of Congress. Trump will also institute a five-year hiatus on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service.

Trump says his next stage will ensure  protection of American workers. One plan in this stage is to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Another plan is to direct his Secretary of the Treasury, Steven Mnuchin, to label China as a currency manipulator. Trump plans to cancel the payments made to the U.N.’s climate change programs and direct them to fix America’s water and environmental structure.

The final stage, Trump says, will restore security and the constitutional rule of law. The first plan is to cancel  executive actions, memorandum and order by Barack Obama including the Affordable Care Act. Trump also plans to create the Middle Class Tax Relief and Simplification Act. It’s an economic plan that will grow the economy by four percent and create 25 million jobs through massive tax reduction and simplification.
