What a concept, An Agenda to Match the Campaign Promises

The Trump campaign pledged a limited number of major goals, much as was also outlined in his inaugural address. It also eliminated the trivial and irrelevant, but contentious, phony and incompetent aspects of the prior administration's agenda. Specifically "Climate Change" and "Special Right" for gays and transexuals. 
It will remain to be seen, but a short and muscular agenda is preferable to contentious, social and over regulated programs designed to take control of every aspect of the lives of American Citizens.
Best of All, Americans have been made the primary people in America once again. 
Why was that a problem before? m/r

New Trump White House Website Sets Agenda That Mirrors Campaign Pledges

Revised website features issue pages for energy policy, foreign policy, economic policy, expanding the military, bolstering law enforcement and rethinking trade 

WASHINGTON—The Trump administration overhauled the White House’s website Friday and published action plans that ranged from building a wall along the Mexico border to pulling back from trade deals, transforming a number of populist campaign themes into concrete agenda items.
The revised website created six different issue pages for energy policy, foreign policy, economic policy, expanding the size of the military, bolstering law enforcement, and rethinking trade.

The changes include removing language about climate change and the White House’s commitment to LGBTQ issues. The only speech listed on the website is President Donald Trump’s inaugural address from earlier Friday, pared back from the hundreds of speeches previously listed—just as the incoming Obama administration wiped the slate clean in 2009.
