Trump’s first 100 days outlined
Donald Trump spoke in Gettysburg, Pa. at the end of October, to release a plan for his first 100 days in office. The outstanding plan outlines three main areas of focus: draining the corrupt swamp in Washington, protecting American workers and restoring rule of law to secure the country's borders.

The keys to the White House is going to a new leader who has pledged to unravel much of Obama’s eight years in office, from ObamaCare to environmental protections to Wall Street reform and the Iran nuclear deal.
Dozens of shell-shocked staffers slowly filled the Rose Garden to watch the end of an era on Thursday. Clinton’s colossal failure on Election Day will result in much of Obama’s legacy being wiped away, something Trump’s plan aims to achieve.
The plan for the first hundred days outlines the introduction of 10 pieces of legislation that would repeal Obamacare, fund the construction of a wall at the Southern border with a provision that Mexico would pay for it, encourage infrastructure investment, rebuild military bases, promote school choice and more.
Trump has promised that on his first day in office, his administration will immediately pursue measures to clean up the corruption and special interest collusion in Washington, DC, proposing a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress; a hiring freeze on all federal employees, a 5 year-ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service, a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government and a complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.
Conservative pundit Pat Buchanan has urged Trump to move fast on his pledge.
Losers, with only the power of obstruction left, are sending out what Trump calls “professional protesters” into the streets in a bid to save their waning influence. Trump dismissed the riots as being orchestrated by the media, as it became obvious that the media needed to create a cover of dissent for their failings to predict a Trump victory.
It is certainly hard to believe that a popular suggestion from the Trump such as a “Cleaning up Corruption in Washington Act, enacting new ethics reforms to Drain the Swamp and reduce the corrupting influence of special interests on American politics” would meet with this level of hostility spontaneously.
Anti-Trump sentiments on Twitter mirrored the riots that broke out across the country on Wednesday. Gatherings of protesters were reported in Chicago, New York City, Los Angeles, Oakland, Seattle, Boston and Portland on Wednesday.
One angry Trump protester in Los Angeles told CNN that she was ready for a civil war. “There will be casualties on both sides. There will be, because people have to die to make a change in this world,” the Latino declared before an anchor hastily reminded viewers that such incitement would be illegal.
Komsomolskaya Pravda – the most read newspaper in Russia – is even worried that the billionaire tycoon would be killed “in the most dramatic version” of John F Kennedy’s assassination.
The former president was shot dead in public by Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas in 1963 – according to the official version of events. Conspiracy theorists have suggested the CIA was involved in JFK’s death.
Thousands of messages calling for Trump’s assassination is being posted across the internet in the hope of ending Trump’s incredible win in the race for the White House.
One wrote on Twitter: “I do not know what is better for us to do, impeachment or straight assassination?”
Another one added: “I still have faith in an assassination attempt, come through American snipers. It is all on you now.”
Twisted voters also wrote “this is gonna end with Trump’s assassination” and “we might get to witness an assassination soon”.
The social networking site has been slammed for its inability to clamp down on criminals who threaten users with violence as the hashtag #AssasinateTrump appeared.
Twitter sacked 800 people two weeks ago and is not believed to actively monitor complaints instead using robots to analyse threats. Its CEO Jack Dorsey is battling with its massive debt and has claimed he will do something about the harassment.
In July, Twitter took no action when thousands called for the mass murder of US police officers.
Downing Street, meanwhile, has strongly rejected claims that ministers will be forced to use Nigel Farage as a “go-between” with the new Trump administration. According to The Daily Telegraph ministers will have to seek the advice of UKIP’s interim leader because they have no links to the president-elect.
But sources close to prime minister Theresa May denied the claims saying Farage, who campaigned for Trump, was an “irrelevance”.
