U.S. President-elect Donald Trump on Monday released a “video message” to Americans, sharing his specific agenda in his first 100 days in office.

Mr. Trump, in the video uploaded on You Tube and Facebook, outlined his key policy platforms ahead of his inauguration on Jan. 20, beginning on day one in office.

Mr. Trump said on his first day in office, he would issue a notice that the U.S. is withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, negotiated by outgoing President Barack Obama involving 12 Pacific Rim nations.

He said he would scrap regulations on energy production, withdrawing from trade agreements and investigating all abuses of visa programmes.

“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.

“This will be creating wealth and jobs for American workers,” Mr. Trump said in his first address since his acceptance speech on election night.

The president-elect said “Our transition team is working very smoothly, efficiently and effectively.

“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,” he said.

He said he wanted to provide an update on the White House transition and policy plans for the first 100 days of his administration.

“I’ve asked my transition team to develop a list of executive actions we can take on day one to restore our laws and bring back our jobs.

“I am going to issue a notification of intent to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a potential disaster for our country; instead we will negotiate fair, bilateral trade deals.”

Mr. Trump campaigned against the Trans Pacific Partnership and his vow to withdraw from the deal makes good on those campaign promises.

On immigration, he said he would direct the Department of Labor to “investigate all abuses of visa programmes that undercut the American worker”.

The incoming president also said he would cancel the Obama administration’s rules that limit energy production.

According to him, he said he would rescind “job-killing” rules on clean coal and natural-gas production, “creating millions of high-paying jobs”.

“That’s what we want, that’s what we’ve been waiting for,” Mr. Trump said.

He also said he would direct the Department of Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to come up with plans to protect American infrastructure from cyber and other attacks.

“These are just a few of the steps we will take to reform Washington and rebuild our middle class.

“I will provide more updates in the coming days, as we work together to make America great again for everyone, and I mean everyone,” he said.

Mr. Trump has not had a news conference since his election and has made cabinet picks public through press releases.

“The man works 18 hours a day interviewing people and taking calls from all around the world.

“He will have a press conference in due course and he will make his announcements for his cabinet,” Trump campaign manager and senior adviser Kellyanne Conway said.
