Donald Trump made many extravagant claims throughout his campaign, but how many can he actually implement? Read on to discover Trump’s post-innauguration to-do list.
1. Repeal Obamacare…Maybe
Trump has mentioned many times during the campaign that he believes Obamacare is bad for the country. After meeting with the President, Trump has begun to backpedal on his original promise, considering keeping the popular portions of the Affordable Care Act.

2. Tax Reform
Right now, it seems as though the reform will benefit businesses and high-income households. Hopefully the President-elect will shed more light on the reform in the coming weeks.
3. Get Rid of Gun-Free Zones
Although Trump has tweeted about getting rid of gun-free zones and has even mentioned allowing guns in schools, his own hotels and other buildings under his name are mostly gun-free zones.
4. Fight ISIS
A major issue brought up in interviews and during debates, Trump has mostly skirted around how he plans on fighting ISIS, save a few comments and Tweets here and there.
5. Leave the Trans-Pacific Partnership
The president-elect has been wary of other nations and has often said that he will restrict foreign trade, abandon the Paris climate agreement and even leave the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Many support the idea of being a mostly independent nation, while others worry about the impact of deserting foreign agreements and partnerships.
6. Reforming Veteran Affairs Department
A strong advocate for the military, Trump plans to allocate more money to help veterans, a group with high rates of homelessness.
7. Ban Syrian Refugees From Entering the United States
A Tweet by Donald Trump Jr. said it best: “If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three would kill you. Would you take a handful? That’s our Syrian refugee problem.”

8. Build a Wall
One of Trump’s biggest campaign projects, a wall is supposed to be built on the southern border to keep out illegal immigrants. Naturally, the Mexican government will foot the bill.
9. Ban Muslims From Entering the United States
This ban is meant to keep ISIS operatives from entering the country.
10. Make America Great Again
