Trump Reveals Policy Goals: "Building That Wall", End "War On Coal", Repeal Obamacare, Dismantle Dodd-Frank

Tyler Durden's picture

On his transition website, the Trump team has laid out the framework of his initial policies with policies focused i) on American Security including as Defense and National security, Immigration Reform and Building That Wall, and Energy Independence; ii) Getting America Back to Work Again including Tax Reform; Regulatory Reform; Trade Reform; Education; Transportation & Infrastructure and Financial Services Reform; and iii) Government for the people including Healthcare Reform (Obamacare), Veterans Administration Reform and Protecting Americans' Constitutional Rights.

The key highlights include:

  • overhaul in immigration policies, including "Building that Wall" , the Trump transition team will "execute on the following ten-point plan to restore integrity to our immigration system, protect our communities, and put America first" - i) Build a Wall on the Southern Border; ii) End Catch-and-Release; iii) Zero Tolerance for Criminal Aliens; iv) Block Funding for Sanctuary Cities; v) Cancel Unconstitutional Executive Orders & Enforce All Immigration Laws; vi) Suspend the Issuance of Visas to Any Place Where Adequate Screening Cannot Occur; vii) Ensure that Other Countries Take Their People Back When We Order Them Deported; viii) Finally Complete the Biometric Entry-Exit Visa Tracking System; ix) Turn Off the Jobs and Benefits Magnet
  • promoting a strong, robust military force to defend against the "threat posed to our nation and our allies by radical ideologies that direct and inspire terrorism." The administration will push for immediate and sustainable actions to counter the threats posed by radical ideologies; will address the "catastrophic threats posed by nuclear weapons and cyber attacks" and will "ensure our strategic nuclear triad is modernized to ensure it continues to be an effective deterrent, and his Administration will review and minimize our nation’s infrastructure vulnerabilities to cyber threats."
  • dismantling and replacing of the Dodd-Frank Act financial-sector law with pro-growth policies. This means that banks will be allowed to not only engage in prop trading again, but to invest directly in hedge funds. “The Dodd-Frank economy does not work for working people. Bureaucratic red tape and Washington mandates are not the answer,” says statement on Trump’s official transition website.
  • changing the tax code: policies since President Obama took office “have been blocked in one way or another” by Democratic opposition, the transition website says in section outlining “tax reform/economic vision.” It adds that “a Trump administration tax plan can be summarized as lower, simpler, fairer, and pro-growth.” as the website summarizes "a Trump Administration tax plan can be summarized as lower, simpler, fairer, and pro-growth."
  • addressing the millions of American jobs that have been lost over the last decade "because of trade deals that do not put Americans first."  The administration will "reverse decades of policies that have pushed jobs out of our country" by making it more desirable for companies to stay, create jobs here, pay taxes here, and rebuild the economy. The new Administration will make it more desirable for companies to stay, create jobs here, pay taxes here, and rebuild our economy.  Our workers and the communities that support them will thrive again, as more and more companies compete to set up manufacturing in the U.S., to hire our young people and give them hope and a real shot at prosperity again.  America will become, once more, a destination for jobs, production and innovation and will once more show economic leadership in the world.
  • fixing education: Trump will advance policies to support learning-and-earning opportunities at the state and local levels for approximately 70 million school-age students, 20 million post-secondary students, and 150 million working adults, To achieve this, Trump will promote high-quality early childhood, magnet, STEAM or theme-based programs; expansion of choice through charters, vouchers, and teacher-driven learning models; and relief from U.S. Department of Education regulations that inhibit innovation.
  • restructuring US energy policies including ending the "war on coal": "make full use" of both renewable and tradition energy sources. "America will unleash an energy revolution that will transform us into a net energy exporter, leading to the creation of millions of new jobs, while protecting the country’s most valuable resources –- our clean air, clean water, and natural habitats,” the website says. “The Trump administration is firmly committed to conserving our wonderful natural resources and beautiful natural habitats." The transition team also vows to open onshore and offshore leasing for federal land and waters for fossil fuel producers, streamline energy permitting, end “war on coal.” The site also pledges “top-down review of all anti-coal regulations issued by the Obama administration.”
  • "Repeal Obamacare" - the Trump administration will work with Congress to repeal Affordable Care Act with replacement that "returns the historic role in regulating health insurance to the states," according to transition plan released Thursday. Replacement would include promotion of Health Savings Accounts and option to buy insurance across states lines. The transition team also says it will act to “protect innocent human life from conception to natural death, including the most defenseless and those Americans with disabilities” and "modernize Medicare, so that it will be ready for the challenges with the coming retirement of the Baby Boom generation – and beyond."
  • protect Americans' constitutional rights: the Trump administration will veto legislation that exceeds Congressional authority, take actions as Chief Executive and Commander-in-Chief that are consistent with his constitutional role, and nominate Judges and Supreme Court Justices who are committed to interpreting the Constitution and laws according to their original public meaning.  Trump says "he will defend Americans' fundamental rights to free speech, religious liberty, keeping and bearing arms, and all other rights guaranteed to them in the Bill of Rights and other constitutional provisions." He hopes to minimize the role of government including the "Tenth Amendment guarantee that many areas of governance are left to the people and the States, and are not the role of the federal government to fulfill."

.... don't forget to expose Obumboclot's legacy

"... Proof that Obama's birth certificate is a forgery - an impeachable felony ... In this brief screen demonstration, Josh Youssef takes you through every step from a technological perspective in determining that Barack Obama's long form birth certificate - the one posted on the Whitehouse's website - is an abject fraud and forgery. ... >>> "

... "... Obama's Birth Certificate - CBS NEWS - FAKE- CONFIRMED ... Experts have confirmed. Obama's birth certificate is fake. Congress to convene. CONFIRMED OBAMA BIRTH CERTICATE IS A FAKE. Obamas birth certificate has been completly proven to be forged. The birth certificate can be shown to have several layers of various birth certificates put together and copied in layers. This is how a document is forged. ..."

Thats because his daddy was Frank Marshall Davis, much older than his momma, already married, and a known Chi-Town Commie!  Which explains Obama's Chi-Town Commie ties that exist in the present day!

The Kenya stuff was all a red herring, to keep people from a much more dangerous truth.

This is the downside of having Don win against such a weak candidate as Hillary.

He didn't really even have to discuss policy.  So let us share with you, Don, what your mandate is.

It is to remove the shackles from the American people!  END THE MOTHERF*CKING FED!  Period.  END.  Not AUDIT.

Gee, it's nice to have an American citizen as President.

FGH's picture

So far, so good. These points should be a good start to destroying Obozo's legacy,

and cementing his position as the worst President EVER.

And Trump even states here that he will cancel all unconstitutional executive orders, 

which should pretty much include all of them.

Dumb Question here: Is there anyway that the USA under President Trump can shutdown the Soros machine or is he Too Big To Fail as far as all the other globalists are concerned???????

Not a bad start.

To make it even better, have all of the special snowflake SJWs, who are arrested for bombing/maiming/destroying, work on the crew building the wall.

Hire the now voted out Sheriff Joe to run the crew.

Something he can add to the list once the country's bricklayers finish on the Rio Grande:

Build a wall around California, and deport all the whinging libfucktards (especially in the MSM) to it. And just think, all those braindead or corrupt Hollywood celebs will be waiting to greet them and share in the multicultural happy-clappy utopia that is...I dunno...New New Mexico, I suppose.

jeff montanye's picture

if trump continues to let banks, especially too big to fail, too big to jail banks, gamble with federally insured deposits, he will be making a profound mistake.

something like glass-steagall must be reintroduced.  those banks gave trump very close to zero support.  they are hated, with good reason, by his voters.  

they should face justice for their enormous control fraud and certainly stop risking the u.s. treasury in these hedge fund operations.

The KGB defector Yuri said in 1984

"we were told never bother with leftists, they think when Marxism comes to power that they will come to power. They won't, they will be the first to turn against the system when the military boot comes down and they will be put in front of a ditch and shot. I can take them to the Soviet Union and show them the gulags, but they still won't believe me. Only when they get a swift kick in the butt will they realize. You are stuck with them."


We will bypass this generation, the Children of the Corn.

Yuri "change takes the length of time that it takes to educate one generation"

they did this to these kids and its very sad, but we have to bypass them they are damaged by liberalism. They have been sacrificed on the alter of globalism.

We can get him for domestic terrorism.


All the rules and laws are in place to put him away and to seize his assests so that in case that an heir to his conglomerate takes his place, there would be nothing to take control of.


But the real question is: Do they know they can? Do they want to? Do they even see him as a threat?


The russians did, why cant we?

Why sure, charge Soros with Sedition

18 U.S. Code § 2384 - Seditious conspiracy

If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.

(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 808; July 24, 1956, ch. 678, §?1, 70 Stat. 623Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, §?330016(1)(N), Sept. 13, 1994108 Stat. 2148.)

Technically soros was working for the government.

CuttingEdge's picture

Didn't I read somewhere Soros owes the IRS about $8bill going back a decade, and has thus far been given a free pass (for what are now quite obvious reasons)?

Every little helps...

jeff montanye's picture

you are right.  victoria nuland worked in the clinton, bush and obama administrations, waging war wherever she could.

this must stop.  

the u.s. is a sovereign nation; we do not profit one iota from doing israel's horrific bidding.

Normalcy Bias's picture

They should easily be able to build a RICO case against Soros if they want to, IMHO.

Keyser's picture

Yes, drone strike at 3:00am... Obozo has been doing it for years, so what is the harm in one more mercy killing... Soros needs to go, one way or the other... 

jeff montanye's picture

he and many others.  but the way to do it must educate the electorate and the world about his evil and the even greater evil of the neocons/neoliberals generally.  it should be seen as bipartisan because it is bipartisan.

the most telling, strategic way to do this is to start with 9-11.  putin probably has some very interesting information and the new law allowing 9-11 families to sue saudi arabia could be used to uncover much more.

this cannot be allowed to fade away.  this enormous crime and the even bigger crimes of the wars that followed must be addressed.

it is the achilles heel of the power elite who did nothing to help elect trump and will destroy him if he doesn't strike first.

or the whole thing was a fraud from the start, as was always a possibility.

the evidence is there for any fair minded person to see:

Soros is on Trump's side in this case. Soros has been really active in the European immigrant business, that causes chaos and makes Europe weaker every day. Trump will leave Eastern Europe into a defense vacuum by hiking Nato membership fees so high that Estonia-Latvia-Lithuania can't afford them. I'm thinking of an indirect Molotov-Ribbentrop 2.0. The message has been sent to Russia already, "we are not interested in Eastern Europe, do what you want with it."

There is a very simple solution to Soros (the Nazi sympathizer).... Trump can simply talk to Netanyahu and hire the Mossad to take him out.... Soros is as anti-Israel as they come and the Mossad would take pride in taking him out.

Don't be surprised if one day we read in the headlines on the NYSlimes that Soros (which is esperanto for "to soar") is having tea in Prague or London early in the morning at a cafe where only smug billionaire elites are permitted to enjoy the crisp morning dew.... and all of a sudden as Soros raises his cup to his mouth a 5.56 mm hole appears out of nowhere through the cup entering his skull. 

We can only hope. Trump can at least challenge Soros legally as well as it is becoming blatantly obvious the Dallas Shooter was an Islamic Soros hired hand:

jeff montanye's picture

perhaps the worst possible idea is to work with the mossad to use extrajudicial means to counter people believed to be wrong politically.

that is what got us in this mess originally.

soros is right about a few things, even if profoundly wrong about ukraine:

drugs should be legalized and israel is not a democracy as it rules conquered land in a vicious, quasi-racist manner and practices horrific ethnic cleansing.

israel is so part of the problem not part of the solution.

it is destructive of the tactical and strategic best interests of the united states of america.

What rubbish. Soros single handedly is responsible for the death and suffering of tens of thousands of people. He is responsible for the refugee crisis in Europe that has proven to be the single biggest factor to the immense increase in rapes of women and the uptick in massive terrorist events that have killed countless Europeans in the last 12 months and is an obvious existential threat to Western culture and survivability. 

Soros funded BLM to the tune of $33 million which their rhetoric was directly responsible for the cold-blooded murder of numerous cops such as the Dallas Massacre which killed 5.

Soros funded orgs that were subversive in the election process in order to undermine any chance of a Trump presidency.... these tactics are Saul Alinskian and are PURE EVIL.

He worked for the Nazi party to count property in the 1930s.... how much do you need spelled out for you to understand how abhorrantly evil this man is and how much suffering he has cause and is causing in the world? 

neidermeyer's picture

I don't see why he can't be found guilty of at least some of the documented crimes in the videos and emails ,, then deport him to go visit Putin...

Perhaps, too, Don Don would destroy Bush's legacies of incompetence, madness, glee of power and war under incredible pretenses the MSM remains silent about. We can't see the pictures of Iraqi babies and children and fetuses blown to smithereenies. The people might regain a conscience about Washington's atrocities.

Withdrawn Sanction's picture

"Perhaps, too, Don Don would destroy Bush's legacies of incompetence, "

That WOULD be nice wouldn't it?  But you seem to be laboring under the misimpression that the Bushes and the Clintons are antagonists.  Hillary's on the obverse of the coin; flip it over and you'll W's mug on the reverse.

Appointments will tell you what is going on in those areas....

jeff montanye's picture

these would be good sources of advice for president trump, imo:

william k. black -  bank regulation

bruce fein -  constitutional and international law/relations

michael hudson - economics and financial regulation

Christopher Lee Bollyn - 9-11 researcher

not much talk about import tariff lately.  imo this was the biggest thing he proposed....but now it's not getting any mentions

Why do you think forcing you pay MORE for things it's going to be good for you?

You'll have your jobs back by nurturing a more productive environment for companies: less taxes, less regulation, more freedom, more competition thus innovation, simpler fiscal rules, and so on. You'll have more enterprises hence jobs.

IMO this is one of the areas where Mr. Trump will more likely get things straight. He is the archetype of a entrepreneur, he has been his whole life on the other side, spite the traditional media he is a very smart person (I know of no one who has become millionaire by being dummy). On this one, of all things, you can trust him. Sleep tight.

I have great clarity in the early morning.

Trump wants Jamie Dimon because he wants growth.

It all makes sense, he is taking the handcuffs off.

buckle up, I told you guys he is a true agent of charge with Uranus conjunct the midheaven.

No bullshit from Don.

Trump will put together the Team of Deplorables and its going to be a wild ride, Snowflakes be dammed to hell.

end the fed and reform banking back to glass/steg act.

not sure wtf to do with the mountain of debt and the feds balaqnce sheet-reset tyme?

sure to set off chaos to get to a baseline budget. basically bankruptcy/reset.

yea - crazy thoughts, but eventually it get crazier than all pandamonium on steroidal collapse...

down, faster than bldg 7...

restore glass stegall act.... ^^^^ that!

swmnguy's picture

Repealing Dodd-Frank without restoring Glass-Steagall would be insane.

However, there are a lot of insane ideas floating around, which people like to indulge in.  Like believing that anything meaningful can be done to improve the US economy without massive cuts to War Machine spending.  Or thinking that jobs will be coming back to the US that under-educated people can do, for wages that can support a family.  Or thinking that healthcare finance is going to get less expensive.

It took a lot of doing to get things as fucked-up as their are now.  Unfucking them is going to take even more doing, and delicately done at that.  The wrecking ball is an appealing notion, but only as a fantasy to indulge in.

"promoting a strong, robust military force" ??? Really??? The last I heard the military had been much too strong that it destroyed other nations instead of just defending its own.

How about ending corruption in DC????
