What the Trump administration has in store for the next couple years: A look at the Trump presidency’s first year
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump has promised to deliver on his campaign promises.
He will be sworn in on Jan. 20, a day after the election.
He has made a number of major campaign promises and he is not stopping there.
He is also set to unveil a series of executive actions to roll back the Affordable Care Act, which he called a “disaster.”
But there is more than one Trump executive order he can expect to issue this year, which may set him on a collision course with the courts and Congress.
Here’s a look at what to watch for this month.
In the past, the White House has announced executive actions on the same day as a new president takes office.
Trump has been particularly vocal about his desire to repeal Obamacare and replace it with his own version of a national health care plan.
In an interview on Fox News Sunday, Trump said he would repeal Obamacare if he were to become president.
“I’ll be very strict about that, but we’re going to repeal and replace, and we’re gonna do it fast,” he said.
The president also said he will try to eliminate the Affordable Health Care Act as soon as possible.
He also promised to cut taxes, expand access to health insurance and eliminate regulations, all on his first day in office.
That could prove difficult.
The White House said the president has not yet finalized his tax plan.
His proposal for the first 100 days would raise taxes on the wealthy and corporations, and repeal a number other regulations.
But Trump said during his Fox News interview that he would not be taking the steps needed to begin the process of repealing the law.
The Affordable Care and COVID-19 Act passed in 2010.
Trump campaigned on repealing it and said it was an “expensive, inefficient and very unfair” law that caused premiums to skyrocket.
He signed a law repealing parts of the law and also signed an executive order last year that gave states the option to opt out of the federal law, and the states began accepting applications for Medicaid expansion.
Since taking office, the president hasn’t made a significant move to repeal or replace the law, which has been widely criticized for costing the country billions of dollars and leading to many Americans losing health coverage.
The administration has said it will not make changes to Medicaid or Medicare, which are two main sources of healthcare funding for millions of Americans.
Trump’s White House is expected to release more details about his healthcare plan in coming days.
The executive orders and other actions he will announce this month will likely include some of the changes he has made in the past.
Trump was criticized by some for rolling back protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions, which critics have said were designed to make insurance more expensive for older people and others.
Trump said in his Fox interview that the president wants to protect people with pre, moderate and high risk conditions and that this means “we’re going out and doing the right thing.”
The White Trump administration is also expected to unveil major changes to the way the government pays its employees.
The government pays an average of $7,400 per employee per year, according to the Government Accountability Office.
Trump is expected announce that the government will begin paying employees a $10.10 per hour increase starting in 2020.
He’s also expected announce the beginning of a plan to overhaul how federal programs are funded.
The Department of Homeland Security is also likely to propose a change to the definition of a “public safety officer” under a White House order.
That would mean that federal agents would no longer be required to wear a uniform, or even wear a badge, but they would be required “to act in a manner consistent with the protection of civil liberties and public safety.”
The order would also allow for the use of the term “public security officer” in certain circumstances.
A senior administration official told The Associated Press that the new approach would be “uniform” but could be changed as needed.
Trump also has ordered the government to begin reducing the number of federal employees and will likely announce the creation of a new position to handle the federal workforce.
He said he wanted to make sure that the “real people” would be brought into the federal government.
The announcement of the new positions will likely be a first for the Trump White House.
Former Vice President Joe Biden is also widely expected to take up the job.
The Obama administration created a position to manage federal government operations called the Office of Personnel Management, or OPM.
The position will be created in an attempt to improve coordination among federal agencies and give a more unified feel to federal employees.
It is also a change from previous administrations that typically created multiple positions to coordinate and direct operations between agencies, a practice that has contributed to the federal bureaucracy being understaffed.
Biden will take over the position in January.
He was one of Trump’s most vocal critics during his presidential campaign, accusing the president of being too cozy with his family and being too willing to work with the wealthy to help him
