Donald Trump’s first 100 days: Withdraw from TPP, don’t investigate Hillary Clinton

 

President-elect Donald Trump has released a video outlining some of his priorities for his first 100 days in office. Former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, meanwhile, says Trump doesn’t intend to pursue an investigation of Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, whose use of a private email system inspired chants of “Lock her up!” at Trump rallies.

Part-time Palm Beacher Trump said in a presidential debate that he’d ask his attorney general to appoint a special prosecutor to look into Clinton’s emails. But Conway told MSNBC’s Morning Joe that the Trump administration “doesn’t wish to pursue these charges” and suggested this would encourage congressional Republicans not to do so, either.

 

Trump’s transition team released a video in which Trump says that in his first 100 days he’ll issue a notice of intent to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership and instead negotiate “fair, bilateral trade deals.” He says he’ll cancel restrictions on the production of shale energy and clean coal and require that new federal regulations be accompanied by the elimination of two old ones.

 

Trump also says he’ll seek a comprehensive plan to protect American infrastructure from cyber attacks. On immigration, Trump didn’t mention his signature proposal to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico, but says he’ll seek an investigation of the abuse of visa programs that “undercut the American worker.”

 

Trump also promised a five-year lobbying ban on officials leaving the executive branch and a lifetime ban for those officials on lobbying for foreign governments.
