Trump outlines plans for first 100 days as President; TPP will be dumped

US President elect Donald Trump has issued a message to the American people, outlining his plans for his first 100 days in office.

In the short video, Mr Trump says his agenda “will be based on a simple core principle: putting America first.”

He has vowed to withdraw the United State from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, which Australia is included in, on his first day in office on January 20.

Australia is one of the key signatories to the TPP and the issue had been discussed at the APEC leaders forum in Peru last weekend, with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull hoping that Trump might have a change of heart.

But it looks like that wont be the case.

Trump also says he’ll issue a rule cutting government regulations, direct the Labor Department to investigate abuses of visa programs, and cancel some restrictions on energy production.

Notably missing from his promises is his pledge to repeal the Affordable Care Act and his vow to build a southern border wall with Mexico.

Trump has yet to hold the traditional news conference that previous presidents- elect have done within days of winning on Election Day.
