What To Expect From Trump Today And Going Forward

President-elect Donald Trump will have if his campaign promises are to be believed, a very busy first day in office. He has pledged a slew of ambitious actions right out of the gate, including overturning a bevvy of President Barack Obama’s executive orders, tearing up trade deals, overturning domestic regulations on energy and the environment, deporting undocumented immigrants, and, of course, repealing the Affordable Care Act.

That doesn’t mean all those actions will be taken on Friday, Jan. 20, after his swearing-in; Trump has talked of Monday as his first big day, and Vice President-elect Mike Pence speaks of implementing the campaign pledges over a period of weeks. And just one day before he takes office, Trump and his team have kept their planned actions very close to the chest or are still deciding just what to do: Few Republican leaders in Washington have an inkling of what is in store.

But what seems clear is that President Trump, once he sits behind the Resolute desk, will have the ability to quickly reshape huge chunks of Obama’s foreign-policy legacy. Here are some key areas to keep an eye on, exploring what policies Trump is expected to enact — and those pledges he is unlikely to be able to fulfil right away.

What To Expect From Trump: The Unexpected

President Donald Trump is unlikely to change China’s stance on North Korea when he visits Beijing this week, but he could well make some headway on trade deals between the two countries.

When Trump arrives in the capital Wednesday, he’ll be meeting his Chinese counterpart possibly at the height of Xi Jinping’s power. After the Communist Party Congress in October — when Xi consolidated his power base — the Chinese president has been projecting himself as a steady, stable leader with a set vision for the nation. Trump will be negotiating with China’s most powerful leader in decades.

Addressing the trade imbalance
On the economy, Trump is expected to focus on the trade imbalance. After July’s Comprehensive Economic Dialogue (an annual economic dialogue session in Washington), both countries expressed their interest in narrowing the U.S.’s trade deficit with China.

On the Chinese leg of his 12-day Asia visit, Trump will likely announce billions of dollars in deals to address the gap.

Based on the business delegation travelling with the U.S. president, the deals will likely centre on China buying American energy and farm products, as well as aircraft and other machinery. Chief executives on his trip include those from Boeing, Cheniere Energy, Texas LNG Brownville, DowDuPont, and the U.S. Soybean Export Council. Full Story
