I'm sure the Donald is waiting with bated breath to hear what Little-Acorn wants him to do, poor guy must be losing sleep over it, he's so anxious for it. :biggrin: So without further ado:

1.) Nominate a conservative to the Supreme Court.

2.) Put together a team of congressmen to craft a replacement (with few regulations) to Obamacare.

3.) Issue Executive Orders to build the Wall on our southern border.

4.) Start repealing Obama’s Executive Orders that restricted oil exploration, workplaces, etc.

------------------------------------------------------

Long versions:

1.) Nominate a genuine Constitutional conservative, in the mold of Scalia, to the Supreme Court. Then start making speeches explaining why you nominated him, and asking the American people to contact their Senators and tell them to approve him.

2.) Executive Orders can’t undo an Act of Congress. (This may be news to Democrats and other failed leftists.) Congress must pass the replacement for Obamacare. So it’s up to them to figure out how to do it. The liberal fanatics kicked a great many Americans off their medical plans and forced them onto high-cost, high-deductible plans they didn’t want. Now if Republicans repeal Obamacare, you can be sure the media and other liberals will scream, “Look! Look! The heartless Republicans are taking away your health care!”, and the rest of their litany of lies they have been inventing for the last decade or two. So Congress must write a bill that (a) repeals Ocare, and (b) puts in place a replacement. The replacement shouldn’t merely be another big-govt health care plan as bad as Ocare – it must start lifting restrictions, mandates, and penaties. And most importantly, he must lay out a plan to talk to the American people and ask them to contact their Congressmen to pass his program repealing and replacing Obamacare. "The power of the Bully Pulpit" Is a president's best weapon... IF he is doing things the American people want. Obama couldn't use that power, but Trump can. And must.

3.) Executive Orders must be designed to implement things Congress has already passed and a President has signed into law. Well, Congress passed laws decades ago, saying that no foreigner can come into the country without a properly issued visa. Those laws have been ignored and violated terribly for the last 30+ years. Building a wall will directly help to bring us into conformance with those laws, and should be started immediately.

4.) What an Executive Order did, an Executive Order can undo. Many of Obama’s did things never passed by Congress, and in some cases actually violate laws passed by Congress or implement things Congress voted against. Trump must start sorting through (he probably already has) existing EOs and writing his own to repeal the ones that do not directly implement what Congress wanted.

1.) Nominate a conservative to the Supreme Court. Trump is not a conservative, and his nominations will be far more like Garland than Scalia.

2.) Put together a team of congressmen to craft a replacement (with few regulations) to Obamacare. This will be interesting. Trump is not a conservative and likes the idea of single payer.

3.) Issue Executive Orders to build the Wall on our southern border. Congressional GOP will not permit it without its pork.

4.) Start repealing Obama’s Executive Orders that restricted oil exploration, workplaces, etc. Good.

There will be plenty more, of course. These are just a good start.

There's literally no reason to wait on #2. He can and should be doing it now. We keep hearing "Repeal and Replace." Well now you can.

I literally expect #3 to never happen. The sheer cost on that one would be so high that I just don't see it. Or, it will happen a very reduced scale, say just a portion of the border. And the truth is, there's better ways to secure the border using drones, motion detection, seimic monitoring, etc. A lot of the spots on the borders simply don't have the geography to make a wall possible or effective.

#4 is day one I'm sure.

The first thing he will do is take a selfie of himself in the Oval Office and Tweet it.
Then he'll go into the private quarters where he will Tweet that they are shabby compared to his digs in Trump Tower.
Then he'll ask the Secret Service if the phone on the desk in the Oval Office can be forwarded to his cell phone and connected into his Twitter account.
After that he will board Mariner One for Manhattan and promise everyone he'll be back in a few days.

How many press conferences will Trump hold in his first 100 days? Guesses anyone? He can't handle people asking him questions in a forum. He only knows how to make speeches where everyone listens, or else a brief interview with a preferably far right anchor person from Fox.

When George Stephanopoulos asked why he wouldn't release his tax returns many months ago, Trump snapped back, "It's none of your business!" Oh boy, so how many press conferences will Fuckface von ClownStick have....ever?

Will Trump go ahead and try to settle his $40,000,000 fraud trial due to start on November 28 or will he go ahead and attend his trial?

I agree. As long as he is not breaking any tax laws and is answering to the IRS, it's no one else's business what he pays in taxes. If he wants to let everyone know, that's fine. But it really isn't anyone else's business.

Some people can accept the new President and try to improve the country while he's in office.

Others can only lie about him, call names, curse, and swear.

Pretty clear which side little "waiting" is on.

So don't complain if Trump has a very opaque/dark administration. He's got you rubes trained so well.
