On Monday, President-elect Donald Trump released a video to the American people outlining the core principle of his presidency and “putting America first.” He laid out his plans for executive actions and day one in office plans to scrap regulations on energy production, withdraw from trade agreements and begin “investigating all abuses of visa programs.”
“Whether it’s producing steel, building cars or curing disease, I want the next generation of production and innovation to happen right here, on our great homeland: America – creating wealth and jobs for American workers,” Trump says in his first address to the nation since his acceptance speech on election night.
By posting the video on YouTube he avoided follow-up questions, and his aides could manage how he was portrayed, rather than relying on independent media to capture the footage. “Our transition team is working very smoothly, efficiently and effectively,” Trump said in the video. “Truly great and talented men and women, patriots indeed are being brought in and many will soon be a part of our government, helping us to make America great again.”
It has 5 million hits, I wonder if Trump plans to hit us with ads and monetize his new forum of speaking to the country. His channel has 46K subscribers.
