Donald Trump is coming. And now?

“He needs to build a wall or a fence, and he’ll have to do it almost immediately,” said Newt Gingrich, the president-elect’s aide.

President – elect of the United States, Donald Trump, takes office on January 20 , but the Americans have begun to speculate about the first actions of the new government. His team is organizing the so-called “First Day Project,” with actions Trump must take in the early hours of his tenure in front of the world’s most powerful nation. “Trump spend hours signing documents and deleting the Obama presidency,” said Stephen Moore, adviser to the president – elect, the magazine New Yorker .

“We want to identify perhaps 25 presidential decrees that Trump could sign on his first day of government.” Trump’s team is looking at several options, but there are some cards on the table that can be considered strong bets for the first day at the White House. With a pennant, Trump can relinquish the Paris Accord that attempts to limit the emission of greenhouse gases. He may also resume construction of the Keystone pipeline, vetoed by his predecessor Barack Obama. It may also discontinue another action by Obama and showcase Democrats: the program for Syrian refugees. There is also the possibility of guiding the Department of Commerce to take Chinese commercial practices forward.

The wall – Such measures, however, are all secondary. Analysts are betting – and Trump himself has already said that – that his first and most shocking measure will be something related to illegal immigration and his project to build the criticized wall on the US border with Mexico. “Anyone who has entered the country illegally is subject to deportation,” he said in Phoenix in August about his actions “in the first hours” after taking office.

During the campaign, Trump emphasized so much the proposal of the wall that many of his voters will feel betrayed if he does not take the project forward. “He needs to build a wall or a fence. And you’re going to have to do it almost immediately, “said Newt Gingrich, a former mayor and adviser to the president-elect. Estimates for the construction of the wall of more than 1,600 kilometers range from 25 to 100 billion dollars (from 82.2 to 329 billion reais). Trump’s willingness to make Mexico pay for the construction of the wall is evidently just a bravado, unfeasible in the real world.

Therefore, among the existing ones, the least expensive option is a steel structure and precast concrete panels of a height between 10 and 15 meters, and deep enough to avoid the construction of tunnels. “There is no ladder that can beat that,” Trump said during the campaign, in a somewhat na├»ve comment. The entire wall, however, will hardly come off the paper. Besides being very unpopular – even among the Republicans – the project is very expensive and of questioned effectiveness. It would be cheaper, and it would be more effective to invest in border patrols, or to encourage the development of northern Mexico to create jobs there and to prevent illegal immigration. Some say the Trump Wall will be reduced to a small, symbolic extension of the federal-funded border fence in 2006 with the support of 26 Democratic senators, including the then-New York State Senator, Hillary Clinton – bitter irony.

The main proposals of Donald Trump

Economy
Unlike Clinton, Trump tax plan reduces rates for the entire population, including the richest. The Republican also promises to cut corporate taxes from 35 percent to 15 percent. “My tax cut will be the biggest since Ronald Reagan and I’m very proud of that”

It also promises an “economic war” against China, which accuses China of engaging in “unfair trade” against the US and manipulating its currency.

He also considers rethinking the role in NATO, which he believes is “costing” the US, and intends to renegotiate the nuclear deal with Iran. The Republican agrees with the end of the embargo on Cuba, but says Obama should have negotiated a better deal . “I believe that easing tensions and improving relations with Russia is absolutely possible. Some say the Russians will not be consistent. I want to find out ”

Syria and the Islamic State
Trump proposes increased spending on the army and insists it will not show a detailed plan to combat EI, as this would give the ‘surprise’ element of its strategy to extremists. Among the few plans announced is to bomb oil-controlled oil stations and work on a joint strategy with other countries, including Russia. It is also contrary to receiving more refugees in the US, a proposal from Hillary. “The growth of the IE is a direct result of political decisions made by President Obama and Secretary Clinton”

It also plans to suspend immigration from areas of the world where there is a proven track record of terrorism. “When Mexico sends its people, they are not sending their best. They send people who have many problems and bring it with them. They are bringing drugs, crime, they are rapists ”
