President-elect Donald Trump released a “video message” Monday to the American people laying out executive actions he wants to take beginning on day one. He laid out plans on trade, energy, government regulation, jobs and more.

Whether it’s producing steel, building cars, or curing disease, I want the next generation of production and innovation to happen right here, in our great homeland: America — creating wealth and jobs for American workers,

He reiterated that all his plans are based on  “putting America first.”
