President-elect Donald Trump will be a demanding leader who applies the best of his negotiating skills to push for U.S. growth, bestselling author David Horowitz told TheStreet.com on Thursday.
Trump won’t be an ideological purist like Republicans who support free trade but don't fight for fair trade, Horowitz said.
“If you just say, ‘well we're for free trade and we're not going to look at the deals that we make’ -- that's not a good idea,” he said. “We've had an anti-business president now for eight years who doesn't take a hard-nosed attitude towards these deals. Trump is going to get better deals for us, which is still free trade.”
Horowitz's new book "The Big Agenda: President Trump's Plan to Save America," released just this week, reveals Trump's "first 100 days strategy" to roll back Obama's legislative and executive record.
Horowitz's new book is the first book about the Trump presidency and has soared to the top of the Amazon bestseller charts, becoming the No.1-selling book on the web.
Trump will also lead the way in making infrastructure spending to boost the U.S. economy, Horowitz said.
“If the economy grows as it will under Trump, there's going to be a lot more money to spend,” he said.
Horowitz’s ‘Big Agenda’ says Trump’s key priorities for the economy include:
- Better Trade Deals – Trump criticized the North American Free Trade Agreement and the Obama administration's Trans-Pacific Partnership as being bad for U.S. workers. President Obama touted TPP, a trade deal with 12 Pacific Rim countries, as good for America because it would remove 18,000 tariffs on U.S. exports. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton described TPP as the “gold standard” for trade deals before flip-flopping as Sen. Bernie Sanders posed a threat to her campaign.
- Energy Drilling – “President Trump will promote U.S. energy independence to thwart the left’s agenda to make America dependent on global partners whose heartfelt hope is to undermine America,” Horowitz says.
- Tax Reform – Trump wants to create better incentives to invest in America and for companies to return their trillions in overseas cash to U.S. shores.
- Infrastructure Spending – Trump plans to improve America’s transportation and communications facilities to make the country a better place to do business.
