Three GREATEST Challenges for President-Elect Trump

Newt Gingrich, one of the most astute House Speakers of all times, notes the three greatest challenges that President-Elect Donald Trump will face. Draining the swamp will be an arduious undertaking and there will be many detours that he must avoid. From his great experience with President Ronald Reagan, Newt offers Donald this great advice. See the video as well.

As Written By Newt Gingrich and seen first on Fox News:

Draining the swamp in Washington is going to be an enormous job.

Here are three fundamental challenges to any effort to transform Washington.

I learned these principles from working with President Reagan on dramatic change in the 1980s and then leading the Contract with America with its deep changes (first GOP majority in 40 years, welfare reform, the only four balanced budgets in your lifetime, the largest capital gains tax cut in history, etc.)

The principles I learned working with Reagan and applied as Speaker seem to be universal for those who would enact deep, profound changes. They are:

1. The “normal” will try to convince the leader to be “reasonable”.

2. Solving symptoms feels satisfying and is an easy substitute for solving the real, underlying problems.

3. The urgent drives out the important.

President-elect Trump should get up every day and begin by looking at his own campaign promises. He owes his presidency to the people who believed in him, not to the courtiers and schmoozers who had contempt for him as candidate but adore him now that he is going to be president.

Let me explain each.

First, the “normal” will try to convince the leader to be reasonable. I remember on election night of 1994 when we had won the House for the first time since 1952.

At about 2:00 am, our key supporters–people who had spent years of their life working for a Republican majority–sat around discussing the historic victory…..

    Crucial days ahead;
    Dec 13th
    States must make final decisions known, over the appointment of their Electors, at least six days before the meeting of the Electors. This is so their electoral votes will be presumed valid when presented to Congress.
    Dec 19th
    The Electors meet in their states and vote for President and Vice President on separate ballots. The Electors record their votes in six “Certificates of Vote,” which are paired with the same Certificates of Ascertainment. The Electorals sign, seal, and certify six sets of electoral votes. These are sent to Congress.
    Dec 28th
    Electoral votes (the Certificate of Vote) must be received by the President of the Senate and the Archivist no later than nine days after the meeting of the Electorals.
    Jan 6th
    The Congress meets in joint session to count the electoral votes.
