Here's What Trump Would Do in His First 100 Days

If elected president, Donald Trump promised he would immediately redistribute funds earmarked for UN climate change programs and channel them to domestic projects.

In a speech in Gettysburg, Trump said during his first 100 days in office he would also lift restrictions on energy production including oil, natural gas, and "clean coal" and green light projects such as the Keystone XL pipeline.

He said:

  • FIFTH, I will lift the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars' worth of job-producing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal.
  • SIXTH, lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward
  • SEVENTH, cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America's water and environmental infrastructure
