For the duration of this seemingly-interminable campaign, Donald Trump has been quietly laying the groundwork for the damage he would enact if he was elected President. As that terrible fever dream is now a reality, he has released his plan for his first 100 days in office and it’s just as bad as we all thought it would be.

NPR reports that the plan focuses on three major areas familiar to those paying attention to his campaign: cleaning up Washington via term limits in Congress; addressing the needs of the American worker; and implementing an astonishingly xenophobic plan to restore the rule of law via the immediate removal of undocumented immigrants and an “extreme vetting” system for those who wish to seek refuge in this country.
Also included in his plan is a clear path to repealing Obamacare and legislation that would make his dream of building a fucking wall at the border of Mexico and the United States a reality. For what it’s worth, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already expressed his disapproval of a few of Trump’s plans, including term limits, saying “It will not be on the agenda in the Senate...I would say we have term limits now — they’re called elections.”
As for the rest of the dreck, McConnell feels strongly about repealing Obamacare and tax reform, as well as securing the borders “in whatever way is the most effective.” Really great news all around.
The plan reads like the late-night rantings of a frustrated, impotent man with little to no understanding of how the government actually works. In short, it is sadly what one would expect from Donald Trump. Read the plan in its entirety here.
