The first 100 days in Office: What will happen after Trump Inauguration Date?

The notoriously controversial President-elect Donald Trump will officially become the 45th United States President this Friday, January 20, 2017. As a new presidential administration is set to take office, many are wondering if he will kepp all his promises to make America great again made during his tumultuous election campaign.

The dawn of Mr. Trump's era could very well change the world within months. His US domestic and foreign policies, his fight against NATO and Obamacare, all face an overhaul. But it is his open anti-immigration stance that is taking center stage. One begs the question if Mr. Trump is only against illegal immigration or all types of immigration and if his appointees and allies in Congress will be able to understand such distinctions. What we know for sure is the uncertainty in which immigrants are living, documented or not.

The First 100 days of Trump as President

The first 100 days in office - which is a term that was coined during President Franklin Roosevelt’s presidency - is when a new administration sets the pace for what is to be expected for the duration of their time in office. For example, President Barack Obama’s first 100 days saw him take on the economic crisis he inherited with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

President-elect Donald Trump has vowed, in the first three months of his presidency, to pull America from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, reduce environmental protections and establish a cyber defense team.

More recently he is on his way to repeal the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare and intends to replace it with a new health insurance package. Although he ensures the critics that he will provide insurance for all, many question his decision to repeal and replace Obamacare and whether he really has a plan for the “replace” part of the equation. Currently, Obamacare, provides health care coverage to more than 20 million Americans, repealing it means that all those covered would not only lose their health care but that thousands could lose their lives as a consequence.

While many maintain that nothing the President-elect says can be taken at face value, his wave of claims as to what will happen during his first 100 days as Commander and Chief has left the country - and the world - worried and living with unnecessary tension.

In his interview with The Times - his first since being elected - he said that he believes NATO is "obsolete" because “it isn’t taking care of terror.” He said Brexit was a “great thing” and that more member states would follow the UK’s lead and leave the EU which sparked an immediate reaction from most European leaders.

Some of the other highlights from his interview were:

  • Brexit was a “great thing” and it was a "smart" decision by the UK
  • UK-US trade deals: "We're gonna get something done very quickly"
  • Angela Merkel: She made a "catastrophic mistake" by letting in 1m migrants
  • Iran nuclear deal: He is “not happy” and it is "one of the dumbest deals I have ever seen"
  • Iraq war: It was "like throwing rocks into a beehive"
  • Syria: "nothing happened" when the US "had a chance to do something when we had the line in the sand."

On foreign policy, Mr. Trump is working closely with an unlikely friend, Russia. While the world sits and watches this unholy bromance between the two leaders unfold, one must ask: is Putin Trump’s asset or is it the other way around?

The First 100 days of Trump: POTUS will keep his Twitter account

Donald Trump is almost as infamous for his tweets as he is for his policies. At one point during his campaign, his staff prohibited him from using the social media platform for believing it was hurting his campaign rather than helping. However, the Twitter aficionado with a reputation for thin skin is now confirming that he will continue to use his Twitter account - rather than the official @POTUS account - with a following of over 20 million people. He said "I’d rather just let that build up and just keep it @realDonaldTrump, it’s working — and the tweeting, I thought I’d do less of it, but I’m covered so dishonestly by the press — so dishonestly — that I can put out Twitter — and it’s not 140, it’s now 280 — I can go bing bing bing... and they put it on and as soon as I tweet it out”.

During his presidency, we can expect that the Twitterer-in-chief will continue to air his grievances and address critics in the world alike using the social media platform.

Whether you are one of his supporters or much prefer Alec Baldwin’s version of the future President, one thing is for sure: we are in for one hell of a ride. Buckle up!
