What happened?

In a two-minute video announcement on Nov. 21, Donald J. Trump announced a list of policy plans for the first 100 days after his Jan. 20 inauguration. Here’s where he stands on a few of the issues now:

Trade

Issue a notification of intent to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a global trade agreement involving 12 countries. The U.S.’s involvement in the TPP was a major goal of the Obama administration. Trump plans to instead negotiate bilateral trade deals that he said will bring jobs and industry back into America.

Energy

Cancel restrictions on the production of American energy and lift environmental regulations on shale energy and clean coal, which will “create millions of new jobs,” according to Trump.

Regulation

Reduce regulations by eliminating two old regulations for each one new regulation.

National Security

Work with the Department of Defense and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to develop a comprehensive plan that will protect America’s infrastructure from cyber and other attacks. He will increase funding of federal infrastructure, according to The Advocate.

Immigration

Team up with the Department of Labor to target and investigate the abuse of visa programs.

Ethics Reform

He plans to impose a five-year ban on executive officials becoming lobbyists after they leave the administration and a lifetime ban on executive officials lobbying on behalf of foreign governments.

Russian Hacking

The Intelligence Community, composed of the FBI, CIA and NSA, released a report on Friday that confirmed the interference of Russian hackers in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. On Monday, news agency Reuters reported that Trump, who formerly opposed suspicions of Russian cyber-attacks, acknowledged the IC’s claims were true.

The Wall

Trump’s White House transition team revealed that he will fund the proposed 700-mile border wall between Mexico and the U.S. using taxpayer money, CNN reported on Friday. In a tweet on the same day, Trump clarified Mexico would be expected to reimburse the U.S. for the wall. Trump plans to go through the appropriations process using a 2006 law to justify the expenditure and will begin the endeavor as early as April, according to CNN.
