Trump's pledges — the firm, the changing, the unknown

President-elect Donald Trump speaks to reporters on November 19, 2016 in Bedminster Township, New JerseyFrom populist candidate to US president-elect, Donald Trump has stuck to certain campaign pledges, on trade for instance, but has wavered on others including climate and health insurance, while keeping his options open on immigration and foreign policy. Trump, who has blasted international trade agreements as costing American jobs, has said he will announce the United States’ withdrawal from the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership, as soon as he takes office on January 20. It is one of the rare Trump proposals hailed by the International Monetary Fund, the Federal Reserve and opposition Democrats: a $550 billion investment to rebuild infrastructure that could boost economic growth and create thousands of jobs.
