Half the country is excited about President-elect Donald Trump; half is not. What can he do to win over more Americans? Simple; charge out of the gate on January 21 with a bevy of policies that voters will like. Here are five things Trump should do on Day One:
1. Call for term limits in Congress.
2. Walk away from the TPP.
3. Call for a halt to admitting Syrian refugees until the authorities have the vetting process down cold.
4. Issue an executive order rescinding Congress’ exemption from Obamacare, an excellent idea proffered by Heather Higgins, President of the Independent Women’s Voice. As she suggests, there’s nothing like skin in the game to light a fire under legislators. Next, announce that Congress will repeal Obamacare to take effect December 2018. Meanwhile, allow insurers to immediately begin offering state-legal policies without the ACA’s expensive and unwieldy mandates. Make it clear that no one will lose coverage.
5. Approve the Keystone Pipeline.

Donald Trump needs to smile more and gripe less. In the few days that remain, he needs to give Americans solid reasons to vote for him, and not just against Hillary Clinton.
Here are three issues that could sway undecided voters in the two short weeks that remain: Obamacare, education and job creation. For a normal candidate, this would be easy. But Trump, easily distracted by petty grievances, has repeatedly proved incapable of staying on message. And, he is remarkably inarticulate. So, here are three critical messages translated into Trump-speak.

While slicing a skin cancer out of my scalp earlier this week, a surgeon entertained me with his views on the health-care bill. Bottom line: He is buying gold. He has no confidence in the U.S. dollar.

If you disliked the autocratic decision making practiced by your HMO, wait until you have to argue your case to Beltway bureaucrats.

Just because we have been struck nearly unconscious by the endless haranguing from President Obama does not mean that we should give up fighting the health care plan coming from the White House.
