Trump Lays Out His Plan For First 100 Days In Office: Here Are The Highlights

Tyler Durden's picture

In a keynote speech in Gettysburg, Pa., about his plans for his first 100 days in office, Donald Trump laid out what he sees as the the core priorities of a Trump presidency, while focusing in the early part of the speech on attacks against Hillary Clinton and Wall Street, and repeating his core message by telling his audience that Washington and Wall Street are “rigged” against him and that he is the candidate to bring “the change that has to come."

"I am not a politician,” Trump told the crowd. “But when I saw the trouble our country was in, I felt I had to act.” Then, moments after promising Americans that he represented a break from
the status quo, he promised to sue a number of women who have come
forward to accuse him of sexual assault, calling them liars.

Trump also railed against the media for seeking to concentrate its power through mergers and for colluding with his accusers to align against his campaign.  He added a new threat to his repeated criticisms of U.S. media companies, when he vowed that in his administration such mega mergers as that between AT&T and Time Warner, which was just announced, would not pass as it leads to "too much concentration of power in the hands of too few."

"As an example of the power structure I'm fighting, AT&T is buying Time Warner and thus CNN, a deal we will not approve in my administration because it's too much concentration of power in the hands of too few."

He would also break up the NBC-Comcast merger saying "deals like this destroy democracy," and slammed every trade deal the US has ever done as "horrible."

In terms of soundbites, the following quotes stood out.

On the economy:

  • "Change has to come from outside our very broken system."
  • "We've doubled our national debt to $20 trillion under President Obama."
  • "Nearly 1 in 4 Americans in their prime earning years isn't even working."
  • "I am asking the American people to dream big once again."
  • "Will withdraw the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
  • "Will cancel every un-Constitutional executive action, memorandum, and order issued by President Obama."
  •  "We will cancel all federal funding of sanctuary cities."
  • "The veterans will finally be taken care of properly."
  • "If we follow these steps, we will once more have a government of, by, and for the people."

On Obamacare:

  • "Fully repeal ObamaCare and replace it with health savings accounts."

On education:

  • "We are going to end Common Core."

On tax reform:

  • "Tax forms will be greatly simplified."
  •  "When they know there are consequences, our companies will stop leaving the United States."

On voter fraud:

  • "1.8 million dead people are registered to vote. And some of them are voting."
  • "2.8 million people are registered in more than one state... 14% of non-citizens are registered to vote."
  • "According to Pew, there are 24 million voter registrations in the United States that are either invalid or significantly inaccurate."
  • "Just been learned on video that the violent protests at some of my rallies...were caused by paid DNC & Clinton campaign operatives."

On immigration:

  • "We're going to suspect immigration from terror-prone regions."

On Hillary:

  • "Hillary Clinton should have been precluded from running... but the FBI and the Justice Dept. covered up her crimes."
  • "Hillary Clinton is not running against me. She's running against change."
  • "HillaryClinton is... running against all of the American people and all of the American voters.

In terms of actual political measures that Trump would propose and/or enact, he listed the following six:

  1. "A Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress."
  2. "A hiring freeze on all federal employees."
  3. "A requirement that for every new federal regulation, 2 existing regulations must be eliminated."
  4. "A 5-year ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government."
  5. "A lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government."
  6. "A complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections."

Some, like Governor Mike Huckabee, liked the speech:

 

Others, like CNN, made it clear they would primarily focus on just one part of the speech, the one where Trump said all the women who have accused him of sexual predation as being liars and he will sue them after the election: "The events never happened. Never. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over"."

Specifically, this is what Trump said about his female accusers:

Putting this speech in a bigger context, as Fox noted earlier, Trump  trails Clinton in Pennsylvania by 6%, according to the RealClearPolitics polls average.

"However, Trump appears in the past few days to be cutting into Clinton’s lead, in part with his repeated message that the liberal media has “rigged” the election by recently publishing allegation against him by at least nine women."

A Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Friday showed Trump having cut Clinton’s lead in half. “The media refuses to talk about the three new national polls that have me in first place,” Trump tweeted overnight. “Biggest crowds ever -- watch what happens!”

With no more debates before the elections, and the mainstream media finally paying attention to the Podesta files, absent some even more dramatic accusations to emerge against Trump (we are confident the well-greased Clinton campaign has quite a few more things up its sleeve), Trump's recent modest rebound just may accelerate over the next two weeks.

Finally, here is the full "contract for the voter" posted by Trump:

Evidence of Trump fraud for anyone, including myself, holding out any smidgen of hope we were not being subjected to yet another piece of political theater; albeit more dynamic than previous performances. In this video of Trump and Hilda at the benefit for children fund raiser, go to the very end of the tape. Trump steps down from the podium and walks across the dais. As he walks toward Hilda, he moves his hand out to make a friendly, comforting gesture by touching her shoulder. He realizes at the last moment what he's doing and allows his hand to glide past her.

If any of this was real; if Trump was sincere, if he believed anything he was saying, if this relationship was truly and deeply 'oppositional', he would never had made that gesture. Never. Ask any body language expert. These are truly exceptional performance artists but as usual, they are only sheep dogs following the whistles of their masters. Definitely a set-up. Kudos to the oligarchs... well done. The Sheeple are all lined up accordingly.

8. Enforce the War Powers Act
9. Audit The Fed, if not end it

I felt a great distrubance. It was as if millions of corrupt cronies and lobbiest cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

10. Restart and fast track Yucca Mountain
11. Reinstitute Glass-Steagall
12. A single and equivalent flat tax rate for everyone, income and capital gains, with no deductions (say 10%?)

 

If Trump won, and could achieve these 12 items, I would think I was dreaming, and the real economy would boom.

What is your Yucca Mountain proposition?

Just curious.

Stop storing spent fuel on site in Fukushima Swimming Pools, and store it instead in the Yucca Mountain facility as planned.

"A 5-year ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government."
"A lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government."
"A complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections."

So this basically legalizes local corruptions! How about banning all lobbyists in the WH, Trump?
Ooops, I forgot about your expected ROI.

"We're going to suspect immigration from terror-prone regions."

Will that include that sh*tty country in the Middle East where all the terrorists come from? Probably not. They're financing his campaign.

Hey toro, previously mofio then santafe then Aristotle of Greece then Gargoyle then bleu then oops then lance-a-lot then most recently Loftie. Looks like Loftie got banned or perhaps just completely outed. I shalln’t miss him! Let’s see how long toro survives, shall we? You need to create those new Account names more quickly toro. Would regular ZH contributors please take a moment to help me in my campaign against this idiot and report toro to abuse@zerohedge.com.

You are a serial spammer and a serial pain in the ass. Might I politely suggest that you go fuck yourself? And get a life.

PS. You might have noticed that my attempt to expose you for what you are is always the same. That’s because your Spam is always the same (Using fake links to your BS site which has no connection to your comments; which are deliberately dramatic to mislead people into responding or clicking on the fake link) so it seems only fair that my exposure of your crap should also always be the same. An eye for an eye.

The penalty doesn't have to be death. I would also accept lifetime prison no chance of parole, ever. Stick them in guantanamo to get ass raped by their islamic buddies for the rest of their lives. confiscate all their assets.

Overturn "Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission"

In private, stronly suggest to Justice Roberts that he resign from SCOTUS. Otherwise boating accident him.

The lobbying needs much more oversight with stiff jail terms. But Trump's ideas are a good step back in the right direction.

He was talking big about the last releases before he made them. We're used to people talking big and then disappointing, but he didn't disappoint. God bless him and his crew.

shovelhead's picture

I gotta go with you on that one. We spent a lot of money to do something sensible for once and they shut it down.

Fuku pools onsite are a very bad idea. Murphy's Law is the doctrine to apply to nuclear power.

Stackers's picture

Hedgless, thats a terrible idea. What really needs to be done is to repeal the Carter Admin ban on being able to reprocess spent fuel in reactors. That was the plan to begin with, but the Carter admin in an attempt to kill nuke power by making it choke to death on it's own waste products killed the ability to reprocess spent fuel under the absurd guise of "non proliferation"

hedgeless_horseman's picture

 

What percent can be reprocessed, and over what period of time?

100% can be stored in Yucca Mountain, right fucking now.

Stackers's picture

Hedgeless, it can all be reprocessed. The problem with Yucca is you have to store stuff that has a half-life measured in 10's of thousands of years. After you reprocess the waste it has a half life of decades.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/realspin/2014/10/01/why-doesnt-u-s-recycle-n...

you still need Yucaa on a long term basis, but the waste you are transporting to it is much less dangerous for much less time.

 

hedgeless_horseman's picture

 

Of course you failed to mention the decades it might take to accomplish it.

This is all just wishful thinking on my part, anyway. 

None of this is going to happen until AFTER we have one or many Fukushima Swimming Pool events in the USA.

Then everyone will say, "Who coulda node?"

Ignorance is bliss's picture

Right now it's on your back yard waiting for a terrorist, hurricane, earthquake, tornado, power outage, tsunami, etc... in Yucca mountain the threat is neutralized. You can still pull it out when you need it for future reprocessing. Let me also add that most of these sites are near heavily populated areas.

Cloud9.5's picture

I got that.  But what is wrong with storing the rods in Yucca Mt until they can be recycled.  We have a one in eight chance a solar flare will take down the grid and melt down the reactors now in operation.  Adding spent fuel rods to the mix makes no sense.

Calmyourself's picture

HH, absolutely correct on Yucca.   Harry Reid should be sealed in a casket first and placed deep in Yucca.  Using Yucca would minimize issues with an EMP or solar event melting down all those used fuel rods sitting i nreciruclation pools cooled by pumps.  Those pumps go its sayonara for the entire country probably the world, fukushima x 10,000

Storing nuclear waste under a dormant volcano on an active earthquake fault line like Yucca Mountain is the answer?

 

It's absolutely wrong and only someone who doesn't live in Nevada would propose that nuclear waste from around the country be dumped into Nevada which has no nuclear reactors.

 

J S Bach's picture

Our immediate goal is figure out a way of getting these useful ideas off of websites like this and into the mainstream consciousness. I would bet that fewer than 10% of the population will ever know that these proposals were made by Trump due to the stifling stranglehold of the kosher MSM. The elimination of this cabal has to be priority number one for any of the others to have a chance of seeing the light of day.

ZD1's picture

Restart and fast track Yucca Mountain?

 

Yucca Mountain in Nevada was created by several large eruptions from a caldera volcano and is considered sacred by Paiute tribes in the area.

 

Most Nevada citizens don't want nuclear waste in their state and especially at Yucca Mountain which is a dormant volcano and near an earthquake fault line.

 

Why not send nuclear waste to Washington DC instead?

 

PS:  Harry Reid sucks

hedgeless_horseman's picture

 

Trump can make Nevada a deal I bet they would love.

Any state that sends Nevada nuclear waste must put a freeze on new gambling and whoring licenses.

The Paiute tribes' allegedly sacred site has already been violated.  The facility is already built, deep under Yucca Mountain.  Is the sanctity of the site violated when planes fly over it?  They never complained about it.  So why should trucks driving under it be a problem?

Most likely, they just want money. 

ZD1's picture

What kind of deal is that?

 

Any state that has nuclear reactors should keep their nuclear waste in their state and deal with it instead dumping their nuclear waste into Nevada which has no nuclear reactors.

hedgeless_horseman's picture

 

Any state that has nuclear reactors should keep their nuclear waste in their state and deal with it

Should? 

So says you. 

Maybe you are morally correct.  However, maybe your solution isn't practical or possible.  That doesn't make this very real problem go away.

Why not let the people of Nevada vote on it?

ZD1's picture

Would you want nuclear waste from around the country dumped into your state?

 

Nevada citizens were never given the opportunity to vote on having Nevada be the nation's nuclear waste dump.

 

Poll after poll showed Nevada voters remained overwhelmingly opposed to federal plans to store the nation's nuclear waste at Yucca Mountain.

Neither did voters from Colorado, Utah, or Arizona get an opportunity to decide on having to send water down the Colorado River so Nevada residents can have electricity for Air Conditioning, from a dam instead of a reactor, and water for casino fountains and golf courses.

The world is an imperfect place, and will be much more so, if we ALL have to deal with a Fukushima Swiming Pool event at one or more of the 99 operating reactors in our backyards.

ZD1's picture

You forgot to mention that the Colorado River flows south near Las Vegas and forms the Nevada and Arizona state border at Lake Mead. Hoover Dam was built on the Colorado River in Black Canyon between Nevada and Arizona. Nevadans have as much right to Colorado River water and power from Hoover Dam as the citizens of Colorado, Utah, or Arizona.

 

It's about time that you start dealing with a Fukushima Swiming Pool event in your backyard instead of dumping your problem into Nevada.

 

 

 

Equinox's picture

USA should fast track new reactors based on molten salt (MSR) and use thorium as fuel, in those you can burn up 99% of the waste from older types of reactors. India and China already take lead in those new reactors.

 

 

 

scsherman's picture

Thorium is also far more prevalent on Earth and will be able to be used indefinitely into the future. They are also less complex, cheaper to build and operate, and basically shut themselves down in the event anything goes wrong. They do not operate under high pressure. They can be built smaller and located closer to where the power is actually required thus saving transmission cost and maintenance. The mining of Thorium also yields large quantities of other useful rare earth minerals and is currently a byproduct of that mining with no real purpose. There really is no downside to Thorium reactors and it boggles my mind why they are not in use.

Equinox's picture

"and it boggles my mind why they are not in use"

 

Because politicians are stupid..

In real, the uranium and oil industry lobby hard to keep thorium out.

ClassicalLib17's picture

Kirk Sorensen says there are 5 large semi-trailers packed with thorium buried in the nevada desert. According to him, spent fuel rods can be added to a thorium reactor reducing their half life to a miniscule length of time compared to the storage process. He has details on his website.

In DRY CASKS yes yes I would...  In fuel pools no, no I would not..  The dry casks are already sitting out in the open at MN nuke plants, just sitting there...  Yucca Mountain puts them in one place so they can be monitored centralization in some instances makes good sense this is one of them.  Drop the emotions and think...

ZD1's picture

"The dry casks are already sitting out in the open at MN nuke plants, just sitting there... "

 

The leftists who control Minnesota and turned their state into a turd world Samoli shithole should be thinking about what to do with their nuclear waste instead of scheming to dump it in Nevada.

 

Only an idiot would think that a dormant volcano on an active earthquake fault line like Yucca Mountain would be a good place to store nuclear waste.

 

The majority of Nevadans don't want that shit dumped into their state!
