Another important event was determined on Nov. 8. According to the New York Times, the republicans have the majority in senate with a three chair lead (51 to 48). Not only do they have the majority in the senate, but also in the house of representatives with 238 seats.  

Trump published a video on Nov. 21 telling Americans what his plans are for his first 100 days in office. The three major points he focuses on are trade, energy and jobs. Nowhere does he talk about building a wall, deporting all muslims, or anything else the media has said will happen.

McConnell did mention that they will be working to reach border security “in whatever way is most effective.” McConnell states that they are looking forward to working with Trump.

It is no secret that Trump wants to reduce the federal government’s involvement. In regards to cleaning up ‘the corruption’ in Washington D.C, Trump will be taking six different measures. First- Propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of congress.

Second- putting a hiring freeze on all federal employees in attempts to reduce the federal workforce through attrition (excluding military, public safety, and public health).

Third- adding a requirement that for every new federal regulation, two old ones must be eliminated.

Fourth/fifth- imposing a five year ban on Congressional and White House officials becoming lobbyists after leaving gov. service and putting a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying “on the behalf of a foreign government,”

Sixth- finally, putting a ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.

According to Advance Media New Jersey, Trump’s inauguration is scheduled for Jan. 20, 2017 at noon in front of the U.S Capitol. Trump’s official presidency will begin then and only time will tell how America will end up.
