Whether you voted for Donald Trump or not, he will be the leader of the free world after inauguration, which has many wondering: what’s next?

At the end of October, Donald Trump spoke in Gettysburg, PA and released a plan for his first 100 days in office called his Contract with the American Voter. Much of what's in it are high-profile promises he's made on the campaign trail, such as building a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border, repealing Obamacare, and suspend immigration from terror-prone regions.

Political consultant John Yob with Strategic National was a former national political director for one time Republican presidential candidate Senator Rand Paul. With a Republican Congress to work with, Yob says chances are good that President Trump will be able to get parts of his agenda passed.

“So I would say the repeal of Obamacare is probably a little more likely to be the first action," Yob said. "I think it remains to be seen exactly what prioritization Trump puts these things [building the border wall]."

Other promises Trump made includes imposing term limits on members of Congress, placing a hiring freeze on federal employees, and renegotiating NAFTA. Yob says that Trump can get a lot done in his first 100 days when many Democrats and Republicans might be willing to work with him.

“I think there is a rally-around-the-flag-attitude whenever a new president gets elected, so I think even Democrats for some period of time will give him a grace period," Yob said.

President Obama invited President-elect Trump to visit the White House Thursday to talk about transitioning between their presidencies.
