Trump’s main goals during his presidency are to create jobs, grow our economy, secure our borders, and lower the crime and murder rates. He wants to develop the urban areas of our country. Also, he wants to restore relations with Russia if possible, and defeat ISIS.
Many people are still upset with the outcome of the election and are trying to fight it, even though the results have been confirmed and accepted. Trump’s inauguration date is January 20th. Heavy security will surround Washington D.C. due to protest and riot concerns.
