Trump’s WhiteHouse.gov Offers Early Policy Clues

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.
