Donald Trump's plan for the first 100 days

- President-Elect Donald Trump has a plan that he believes he can execute in 100 days.

The plan outlines three areas of focus. Number one: cleaning up Washington including imposing term limits on Congress and a complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.

“Governing is a lot harder than running, and, I think he’s going to learn that,” said Blois Olson, analyst with Fluence Media. “All candidates, no matter what party, always have huge ambitions. His is more realistic because republicans will control the House and the Senate. In theory, they won't have to compromise that much.”

Olson said he believes Trump can reform or repeal Obamacare in the first 100 days. However, he said getting a constitutional amendment on term limits is unrealistic.

Number two on Trump’s list is protecting American workers, which would address trade and international relations.

Olson said he doesn’t think the trade deals can be renegotiated in the first 100 days, but that Trump will set some new rules around trade as a whole.

Third on his list is restoring the rule of law, which would aim at removing more than two million criminal illegal immigrants from the U.S. and suspending immigration from terror prone regions.

“Immigration is going to be a very contentious issue with Congress,” Olson said.

Legislative measures in Trump's 100 day plan include middle class tax relief - a 35 percent tax cut for families with two children and reducing the current number of tax brackets from seven to three.

“Those easy things he's going to get done in the first 100 days will be things that are very populist and will allow him some runway with the American people,” Olson said.
