Trump says quitting trade deal, tackling visa abuses to be priorities

US President-elect Donald Trumpreleased a video on Monday laying out actions he will take on his first day in office including directing the Department of Labor “to investigate all abuses of visa programmes that undercut the American worker” and withdrawing the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal.

Mr Trump also said he would issue a rule cutting government regulations and cancel some restrictions on energy production, including shale oil and gas and coal.

In the video, Mr Trump said his agenda would “be based on a simple core principle: putting America first. Whether it’s producing steel, building cars, or curing disease, I want the next generation of production and innovation to happen right here”.

He had asked his transition team “to develop a list of executive actions we can take on day one to restore our laws and bring back our jobs”.
