In a quite short video broadcasted on YouTube on November 21, 2016, President-elect Donald Trump listed the six top priorities of his administration during his first 100 days at the White House. Three measures address US business competitiveness, two national security and one politics. With regards to competitiveness, Trump confirmed he would withdraw the United States from the free trade agreement TPP, this way indirectly announcing the end of the TTIP talks. Trump will cancel restrictions on the US energy sector while reducing regulations especially business-related.
With regards to national security, Trump will ask the DOD to protect US infrastructure, especially cyber ones, and will start an investigation into abuse of visa programs. With regards to politics, Trump will make a dramatic “drain the swamp” move with ethics reform that would impose a 5-year ban on executive officials becoming lobbyist after they left the administration and a lifetime ban on executive officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government. According to Cyceon, these six measures confirmed the pledges made during the campaign and are being favorably welcomed by a majority of Americans.
