In a YouTube video posted to his transition website Monday evening, President-elect Donald Trump provided an "update" on his presidential transition effort and listed some goals for his first 100 days in office. "I've asked my transition team to develop a list of executive actions we can take on Day 1 to restore our laws and bring back our jobs," Trump said, adding, "It's about time."

The list includes formally withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, canceling restrictions on "shale energy" (i.e. fracking) and "clean coal," ordering that every new regulation be met by scrapping two existing ones, instructing the Labor Department to "investigate all abuses of visa programs that undercut the American worker," asking the Defense Department and Joint Chiefs of Staff to create new cybersecurity plans, and imposing a five-year ban on lobbying for "executive officials" after they leave his administration plus a lifetime ban on lobbying for a foreign government. That last order would appear to rule out incoming National Security Adviser Michael Flynn returning to his consulting firm, and Rudy Giuliani would face a similar quandary if he joins the Trump administration.
