After 100 Days in Office, Trump Sets His Eyes on the Challenges Ahead
With 100 days in office now behind him, President Trump is applying what he has learned from his successes and failures, and using them to address the next big issues on his agenda.
Among them: tax reform, an overhaul of the Affordable Care Act, and a revamping of the nation’s infrastructure, according to The Washington Post.
For Trump to deliver on any of these, he must learn to lead the Republican party, says House Minority Whip Steny H. Hoyer, a Democrat, as if speaking directly to Trump.
“Your party is a divided party – you found that out. Some things you thought you were going to be able to do you haven’t been able to do, not because of Democratic opposition but Republican division,” he said.
In the eyes of everyday Americans, success for Trump would mean striving to continue delivering on his campaign promises, especially in what could be a hallmark of his administration – tax reform.
Such a feat has not been accomplished since Ronald Reagan passed a comprehensive tax reform package in 1986. He accomplished the challenge in 500 days – consuming much of his second term in office.
Trump is optimistic of passing comparable legislation in his first year.
He and his staff have already begun laying the groundwork with lawmakers, trying to get a feel for the kind of bill that could pass.
If benchmarks are made through the summer, Trump hopes that as early as fall the House and Senate could vote on a plan. But international conflicts, such as with North Korea, could delay any domestic issues on his horizon.
