NEW YORK -- As President-elect Donald Trump's transition team continues to pore through candidates for thousands of appointment positions, Trump released a video to the public detailing his official plan for his first 100 days in office. 

His plan includes the candidate's intent to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which he called a potential disaster. 

"Instead, we will negotiate fair, bilateral trade deals," Trump said. 

Trump said he would reduce restrictions on American energy, including coal and shale. He called the restrictions "job killing." 

"Creating many millions of high-paying jobs," Trump said of his moves. "That's what we want, that's what we've been waiting for."

Also important to the president-elect is removing and untangling complicated regulations.

"I will formulate a rule saying for every one new regulation, two old regulations must be eliminated," Trump said. 

Trump said he would ask the Department of Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to draw up a plan to protect against all cyber attacks and other attacks, too. 

The Department of Labor would also be told by the President-elect to investigate abuses of work visa programs.

In Trump's efforts to "Drain the Swamp," he said lobbying would need to be changed. 

"We will impose a five-year-ban on executive officials becoming lobbyists after they leave the administration, and a lifetime ban on executive officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government," Trump said.

Trump said he hopes his plan will "Make America Great Again for everyone," saying he would continue to update the public as his plans are pushed forward.
