Furthermore, he said that the work visas will now be given after thorough investigation. Trump said that the issues relating trade, energy, regulation, national security, immigration and ethics reform would be his priority.
Trump said in his speech, “My agenda will be based on a simple core principle: putting America first. Whether it’s producing steel, building cars, or curing disease, I want the next generation of production and innovation to happen right here, in our great homeland: America – creating wealth and jobs for American workers”
“As part of this plan, I’ve asked my transition team to develop a list of the executive actions we can take on day one to restore our laws and bring back our jobs. It’s about time…On trade, I am going to issue our notification of intent to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a potential disaster for our country. Instead, we will negotiate fair, bilateral trade deals that bring jobs and industry back to American shores.”
