1. On his first day in office, Trump says he'd appoint a special counsel to investigate Joe Biden’s family, including his son Hunter and his family’s revenues.
  2. Trump also wants a truth-and-reconciliation commission to expose what he says are misdeeds against him and others by the U.S. national-security apparatus. Trumps wants reforms to surveillance rules and says he will shatter the deep state. Trump will expel the warmongers from the  government, drive out drive out the globalists, cast out the communists, Marxists and fascists and throw off  the sick political class that hates the country.For his own allies, Trump promises clemency, saying he wants to pardon a large portion of the rioters from the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
  3. Trump allies want to overhaul the federal bureaucracy and replace civil servants with more like-minded ones. Trump wants to fire civil servants under a plan he started in 2020 when he signed an executive order to reclassify up to 50,000 bureaucrats as political staff in order to strip them of job protections. The order was cancelled by Biden, but Trump aims to bring it back. Critics say it amounts to a declaration of war on the civil service. There will be a court fight and Trump will be sued over. The plan could also have a potential chilling effect on civil servants, with bureaucrats scared to execute orders they might consider unlawful.
  4. Trump wants to curtail gender-affirming care for minors. He wants hospitals and doctors cut off from federal health funding if they participate in transitioning treatment for minors. He also wants the Department of Justice to investigate pharmaceutical companies and hospital networks that may be promoting the treatment, encourage lawsuits against doctors who provide it and penalize teachers and schools that encourage it.
  5. Trump wants drug dealers and human traffickers executed as part of a punishment-heavy justice platform. Expanding the federal death penalty to new crimes would require an act of Congress. The last such expansion happened in 1994 and there's no certainty any future Congress would help Trump introduce this.
  6. Trump proposes military strikes against cartels, using special forces. Experts say a president could almost certainly authorize a cross-border strike without congressional approval, but this would have huge diplomatic and trade repercussions. On U.S. soil, Trump proposes deploying the National Guard against drug gangs, which experts are more doubtful is achievable.
  7. Trump would end citizenship rights for children born on U.S. soil to undocumented parents – a radical change in interpreting the Constitution’s birthright citizenship clause. Trump promises to sign an executive order that would block federal agencies from issuing these children passports and other national documents, like Social Security cards. Trump believes his policy will choke off a major incentive for continued illegal immigration [and] deter more migrants from coming. The courts would almost certainly stop Trump, because experts say the legal precedent for birthright citizenship is strong. There would be an immediate injunction, and a lengthy a lengthy court battle. Also on migration, Trump promises to use an old law to bar "Marxists" from entering the U.S., which some observers say could primarily affect card-carrying members of China's Communist Party elite.
  8. Trump says he would force homeless people off city streets. He would ban urban camping and offer violators two options: receive treatment and rehabilitation in newly constructed encampments, or face arrest.  He says he would also bring back mental asylums, with the goal of treating and releasing people. Washington could offer cities and states funding for programs like this, but there's no role for federal officials scouring U.S. cities to get people off the streets.
  9. Trump is angry over how he and members of his campaign were treated on tech and social platforms during the 2020 election. Now, he wants to see them punished. He wouldn't simply cut off funding for fighting so-called misinformation; he would identify and fire bureaucrats engaged in what he calls censorship. Trump says he would order the Department of Justice to investigate and prosecute any violations of federal civil-rights law, election law and securities and anti-trust laws. He is also threatening tech companies with the removal of their historic protections against libel lawsuits if they censor people, something that would require Congress to pass a law.
  10. Trump would cancel programs aimed at race and gender equity created by Biden, citing those aimed at non-white farmers and restaurant owners. He would also fire federal staffers involved in these programs and ask Congress to create a restitution fund for other Americans he says were discriminated against.
  11. Trump would fight for more presidential control and power. Trump and his allies are planning a sweeping expansion of presidential power over the machinery of government if voters return him to the White House in 2025, reshaping the structure of the executive branch to concentrate far greater authority directly in his hands. Mr. Trump and his associates have a broader goal: to alter the balance of power by increasing the president’s authority over every part of the federal government that now operates, by either law or tradition, with any measure of independence from political interference by the White House. Mr. Trump intends to bring independent agencies like the Federal Communications Commission, which makes and enforces rules for television and internet companies, and the Federal Trade Commission, which enforces various antitrust and other consumer protection rules against businesses under direct presidential control. If Mr. Trump and his allies get another shot at power, the independence of the Federal Reserve , an institution Mr. Trump publicly railed at as president could be up for debate. er that includes the Fed. Mr. Trump has also vowed to impound funds, or refuse to spend money appropriated by Congress; a tactic that lawmakers banned under Richard Nixon. Trump has declared that presidents have a constitutional right to impound funds and said he would restore the practice though he acknowledged it could result in a legal battle.
  12. Trump has promised a presidential commission into what's driving a rise in childhood ailments. He mentioned autism and a number of other ailments, and while listing several possible causes he appeared to specifically single out pharmaceutical companies. He believes the public health establishment is too close to big pharma and if big pharma defrauds American patients and taxpayers or puts profits above people, they must be investigated and held accountable."
