Trump elected President: So what’s next?

Whether you voted for Donald Trump or not, he will be the leader of the free world after inauguration, which has many wondering: what’s next?

At the end of October, Donald Trump spoke in Gettysburg, PA and released a plan for his first 100 days in office called his Contract with the American Voter. Much of what's in it are high-profile promises he's made on the campaign trail, such as building a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border, repealing Obamacare, and suspend immigration from terror-prone regions.

Political consultant John Yob with Strategic National was a former national political director for one time Republican presidential candidate Senator Rand Paul. With a Republican Congress to work with, Yob says chances are good that President Trump will be able to get parts of his agenda passed.

“So I would say the repeal of Obamacare is probably a little more likely to be the first action," Yob said. "I think it remains to be seen exactly what prioritization Trump puts these things [building the border wall]."

Other promises Trump made includes imposing term limits on members of Congress, placing a hiring freeze on federal employees, and renegotiating NAFTA. Yob says that Trump can get a lot done in his first 100 days when many Democrats and Republicans might be willing to work with him.

“I think there is a rally-around-the-flag-attitude whenever a new president gets elected, so I think even Democrats for some period of time will give him a grace period," Yob said.

President Obama invited President-elect Trump to visit the White House Thursday to talk about transitioning between their presidencies.

    My vote for Trump was primarily a rebuke of the wrong-headed and sometimes purely provocative nonsense coming out of the Obama administration and the Supreme Court in recent years. Shutting down the nonsense should be the first order of business, which includes reversing a lot of Obama executive orders and far-left interpretations of existing laws by the Justice Department, EEOC and HHS.

        Actually, if you look you can find public comments by me saying that I couldn’t accept a subsidy to buy insurance because I cannot conscientiously ask my neighbors to help pay for my family’s health care.
