BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Once president-elect Donald Trump is sworn into the White House, all eyes will be on his first 100 days and what he can actually accomplish. The new president will have a majority and newly unified Republican congress to help him fulfill his agenda.
On a long list that includes removing more than 2 million criminal illegal immigrants to middle class tax relief among a number of other things look more do-able with a Republican surge.
“I hope you’re having as good of a day as I am,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
With much of the nation still in shock at an upset in the presidential election, “we look forward to working with him, the things he’s likely to advocate, we’ll be enthusiastically for,” McConnell said.
“Where we have differences of opinion I expect us to discuss them privately,” he continued.
The reality soon sets in that a President Trump will make changes in Washington D.C. in his first 100 days.
According to experts, the number one item on the list that Americans most likely will see is – repealing the affordable care-act, along with appointing a supreme court justice, addressing national security and even an effort to get rid of the North America Free Trade Act.
“I think you will see some action in trade, I think you’ll see him try to make different trade deals with China and I think that’s one of the things that resignated with people,” said political commentator Steve Flowers.
Then comes talk about the wall that Trump said Mexico is going to pay for, “I don’t think that Muslims or people of that persuasion or Hispanic illegals are going to be automatically deported and I think that was more rhetoric,” Flowers said.
Many have argued that it was Trump’s rhetoric that got him to the White House, but only time will tell if America will see candidate Trump or the president-elect who graciously accepted election victory.
