Donald Trump Activities and What is his next phase?
After 9 months of Donald Trump’s ruling, what did the America and World achieved? Is he really doing as per his manifesto? Is he keeping his promises? Is he really thinking about America future….?
We will go through a quick glance about his history and last 9 months of his work…
Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946 in the New York City) is the 45th and current President of the United States, in office since January 20, 2017. Before entering politics, he was a businessman and television personality.
He earned an economics degree. A third-generation businessman, Trump followed in the footsteps of his grandmother Elizabeth and father Fred in running the family real estate company. He served as chairman and president of The Trump Organization from 1971 until January 2017. Upon his inauguration as president, Trump delegated company management to his sons Donald Jr. and Eric. Trump’s business career primarily focused on building or renovating office towers, hotels, casinos, and golf courses. Trump also started several side ventures and branded various products with his name. He has written or co-written several books (including The Art of the Deal), and produced and hosted The Apprentice television series for 12 years. As of 2017, he was the 544th richest person in the world, with an estimated net worth of $3.5 billion.
Trump won the general election on November 8, 2016, in a surprise victory against Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton, the first without prior military or government service, and the fifth to have won the election despite losing the popular vote. His election and policies have sparked numerous protests.
As president, Trump’s major domestic policy initiatives have included a failed attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, the appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, and a travel ban on citizens from six Muslim-majority countries, citing security concerns. In foreign policy, he withdrew the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Paris Climate Agreement, undid parts of the Cuban Thaw, and ordered missile strikes in Syria in response to the Khan Shaykhun chemical attack. After Trump dismissed FBI Director James Comey, the Justice Department appointed his predecessor Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Russia’s interference in the presidential election, potential links between Russia and Trump campaign associates, and any related matters.
1. ‘Build a wall’ — and make Mexico pay for it
Trump announced his candidacy with the promise “to build a great, great wall on our southern border” and “have Mexico pay for that wall,” and has repeated the call with conviction and consistency.
“There are some that hear this is going to be 1,200 miles from Brownsville to El Paso, 30-foot high, and listen, I know you can’t do that,” former Texas Gov. Rick Perry said recently.
During Trump’s first week in office, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto reiterated that Mexico would not be paying for a wall. As for it being “inexpensive,” the cost is now projected at $15 billion, approximately $120 per household.
2. Repeal and replace Obamacare with “insurance for everybody”
Trump’s failure to deliver a passable health care bill last month was a total blow to his reputation as a dealmaker.
3. Temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States
In early May, Trump told the New York Times the ban would be in place by the end of his first 100 days in office. But on Fox News Radio a few days later, he said that it was “just a suggestion.” A month later, he recommitted to the ban, tweaking it to now encompass immigrants from “nations tied to Islamic terror.”
4. ‘Bring manufacturing (jobs) back’
“I am going to withdraw the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (and) I’m going tell our NAFTA partners that I intend to immediately renegotiate the terms of that agreement to get a better deal for our workers,” Trump said. “I will use every lawful presidential power to remedy trade disputes, including the application of tariffs.”
Susan Houseman, an economist with the W.E. Upjohn Institute, commended some of Trump’s proposals but said the issue is way more complex than Trump describes.
“The devil is in the details, which of course are entirely absent from Trump’s speech and policy positions,” she said, adding that suddenly changing trade policies and tariffs could actually lead to job losses.
Harry Moser, president of the Reshoring Initiative, is more optimistic that Trump could deliver, but said Trump would have to be in it for the long haul: “You can’t do it in a day, you can’t do it a year. I’d be delighted if we can do it in a decade or two.”
5. Label China a currency manipulator
After meeting with Chinese President Xi at his Palm beach resort Mar-a-Lago, the president completely reversed his “tough on China” position.
6. Impose tariffs on goods made in China and Mexico
Warren Maruyama, a former general counsel to the U.S. Trade Representative under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, told us President Trump would have the authority under a variety of trade statutes to impose higher tariffs, but added “it would lead to a trade war and cost hundreds and thousands of jobs.”
Hal Shapiro, an attorney specializing in international trade practice, pointed to Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 which gives the president the power to impose retaliatory tariffs on countries that violate trade agreements or engage in unfair trade practices under. But Shapiro said he can’t think of “a single instance” where a U.S. company offshoring is considered an unfair trade practice by the foreign country.
Trump’s promise also violates international trade rules, and he’s yet to propose exiting the World Trade Organization. So assuming the United States stays in the club, Beijing and Mexico City wouldn’t take his blanket tariffs lying down and would almost certainly retaliate.
7. Renegotiate or withdraw from the North American Free Trade Agreement and Trans-Pacific Partnership
Trump has been most critical of NAFTA and TPP, pinning them to Clinton and past and future job losses.
President Trump would have the authority to bow out of the North American Free Trade Agreement and the Trans Pacific Partnership. But such a move may not increase American manufacturing jobs; an expert told us that leverage works in both directions.
“Countries like Mexico and Canada would have a list of things they’d want from the United States,” Alan Wolff, a former U.S. deputy trade representative under President Jimmy Carter. “These are balanced, hard-to-negotiate agreements.”
8. ‘Full repeal of Obamacare’ and replace it with a market-based alternative
Trump’s call to repeal Obamacare and replace it with a marketplace alternative is popular among rank-and-file Republicans. Larger majorities in Congress would be needed for repeal.
“If a Trump win is accompanied by Republican control of both houses of Congress, then some significant rollback is feasible and likely,” said John McDonough, a health policy professor at Harvard University.
9. Eradicate crime in Chicago
Candidate Trump frequently targeted the “carnage” of Barack Obama’s hometown and Hillary Clinton’s birthplace with threats to “send in the feds” once he took office. But Chicago’s murder rate remains high despite Trump’s boasts last August that he could fix the problem “in a week”.
10. Save the coal industry
Despite a policy and production shift, one of Trump’s most audacious claims has been dismissed by top industry executives and some of his biggest supporters.
11. Stay out of the Middle East
Trump’s military strike on a Syrian airbase was a complete 180 from the isolationist rhetoric he campaigned on, a move that has angered some of his most ardent supporters. The policy reversal was especially hypocritical given his criticism of President Obama in 2013.
12. Not take vacations
“I would not be a president who took vacations. I would not be a president that takes time off,” Trump said in June 2015. As of mid-April, Trump has spent nearly 30 percent of his term staying at or traveling to Mar-a-Lago.
13. Sue his accusers
During the fallout from his 2005 Hollywood Access tape, Trump promised at a campaign rally in Gettysburg, PA: “All of these liars will be sued after the election is over.” Five months later, he is yet to take legal action.
14. Jail Hillary Clinton
The notorious rallying cry to “lock up” his opponent quickly softened post-election; Hillary Clinton even attended his inauguration in January.
After all these, total America in a dilemma and no clue what will happen next, every day is a suspense and twitter is full of surprises with Trump.
The supreme power America now in hands of a person who is not capable and don’t know what is talking and don’t know the politics.
What was the lowest point of his career or personal life?
How he will bounce back?
What was it that will pulled him up from the depths?
What he is thinking about his personality that allowed him to learn from difficult times, rather than being consumed and overwhelmed by them?
I believe the American Public will see its error of last November and will begin to correct our course in the midterm elections next year? Not only Americans but also throughout the world is eagerly waiting for the future of Donald Trump and America.
I love America and expecting that America will take first step for World Peace and Happy life.
