Trump Announces Plans to Boost Jobs and the Economy in First 100 Days

Today US president-elect Donald Trump released a video message outlining priorities for his first 100 days in office. Following is a partial transcript of his transition plans for boosting jobs and the economy:

Today I would like to provide the American people with an update on the White House transition, and our policy plans for the first 100 days.

My agenda will be based on a simple core principal: Putting America First.

Whether it’s producing steel, building cars or curing disease, I want the next generation of production and innovation to happen right here, on our great homeland, America, creating wealth and jobs for American workers.

As part of this plan, I’ve asked my transition team to develop a list of executive actions we can take on Day One to restore our laws and bring back our jobs—it’s about time.

These include the following:

On trade, I am going to issue our notification of intent to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a potential disaster for our country. Instead, we will negotiate fair, bilateral trade deals that bring jobs and industry back onto American shores.

On energy, I will cancel job-killing restrictions on the production of American energy, including shale energy and clean coal, creating many millions of high-paying jobs.

On regulation, I will formulate a rule which says that for every one new regulation, two old regulations must be eliminated.

On immigration, I will direct the Department of Labor to investigate all abuses of visa programs that undercut the American worker.

These are just a few of the steps we will take to reform Washington and rebuild our middle class.

I will provide more updates in the coming days as we work together to make America Great Again for everyone—and I mean everyone.
