President Donald Trump took over WhiteHouse.gov on Friday. Here are some policy positions he’s staking out early.
President Donald Trump took the oath of office around noon on Friday:
Trump’s administration also gained control over WhiteHouse.gov. The “Issues” section of WhiteHouse.gov provides some early clues on the policies President Trump will pursue now that he’s taken the oath of office:
- Eliminating President Obama’s Climate Action Plan and his Waters of the U.S. rule, embracing shale oil and gas, and “reviving America’s coal industry”
- Focus foreign policy efforts on defeating ISIS and “other radical Islamic terror groups”
- Withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and renegotiate NAFTA
- “[P]ro-growth tax reform” and “a moratorium on new federal regulations”
- End the “defense sequest,” build “state-of-the-art missile defense,” and reform the VA
- End the “anti-police atmosphere,” support the Second Amendment, build a border wall
So there it is: Trump’s early focus will be on energy, foreign policy, trade, and the military. An interesting note: no mention of health care on the “Issues” pages this early on.
