Donald Trump has promised that as president he will honour the pledge stitched into his white and red baseball caps: Make America Great Again.
The former television entertainer’s campaign has been a roller coaster of triumphs and pitfalls, but his love for hyperbole has never wavered.
 
With him in the White House, Mr Trump has said, his supporters are going to “win so big” they will soon be “sick of winning”.
 
 
When it comes to mapping out the details of a Trump presidency, the Republican flag bearer has been no less extravagant.
It is customary in American presidential elections that a candidate sets out a vision for their first term in the Oval office.
But ever keen to be “the greatest”, Mr Trump has slashed the timeline of his proposals from 100 days to one.
At an address delivered in historic Gettysburg last month,  Mr Trump laid out a “contract with the American people” that would begin with a “very busy first day”.
He proceeded to detail 24-hours designed to erase traces of Barack Obama’s presidency and set America on a protectionist, nativist track.
 
Immigration
Mr Trump’s rhetoric on immigration came to define his presidential campaign.
 
Though slightly more carefully worded, his proposal once in office remains some of the most divisive legislation on the issue.
 
Trump has quietly dropped his call to remove all undocumented immigrants from the US, a move that, aside from being so impractical it might be impossible, experts have warned that would not be favourable to the US economy by taking too many people out of the labour market.
 
Instead he would immediately begin the process of deporting illegal immigrants with criminal records.
 
Recent records estimate there are fewer than 168,000 such people in the United States.  But Mr Trump put the number at some two million, suggesting his calculations of “criminals”, people who have had minor run-ins with the law, such as getting a speeding ticket.
 
He will also “suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur”.
 
Though the terminology is vague, Syria and Iraq would almost certainly be on this list. Mr Trump has claimed that the government “does not know” who the refugees it lets in are from the country, despite their being scrutinized for up to two years before being allowed to enter the US.
 
Also he intended, though this would not happen on his first day, he admits, but eventually a Trump administration would push through legislation “build a wall” along the southern border of the United States and make Mexico bear the costs.
 
He has not however, explained in detail how this would happen.
 
Reform Of Washington
 
Donald Trump has promised to “drain the swamp” of big money Washington politics.
 
In one of his most popular campaign pitches, he has said he will “reduce the corrupting influence of special interests”.
 
Speaking in Gettysburg, at the site where in 1863 Abraham Lincoln delivered his famous speech to unite Americans, Mr Trump sought to mimic the legendary leader, promising to reinstate a government “for the people and by the people”.
 
His first day reforms include a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of congress and a five-year ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service.
 
In an effort to shrink the size of government the nominee called for a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce its workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health).
 
Trade
 
Mr Trump presidency would break from the traditional Republican commitment to free trade, imposing a set of protectionist policies to close America’s economic borders.
 
He will immediately announce his intention to “renegotiate” the North American Free Trade agreement with Canada and Mexico.
 
He would cancel participation in the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a controversial trade arrangement with 12 countries. The pact aims to deepen economic ties between these nations, slashing tariffs and fostering trade to boost growth. But critics argue that it will also intensify competition between countries’ labour forces.
Foreign Policy
Donald Trump describes his foreign policy as “America First”, and says as commander-in-chief he would only engage the US in fights that were in America’s self-interest and where clear, definable victory would be achievable.
Donald Trump has said that as president he may not guarantee protection to fellow NATO countries that come under attack.
In an interview earlier before the Republican convention Mr Trump said America would help only if that country had fulfilled its “obligations” within the alliance.
Which marked the first time in post-World War Two era that a candidate for president suggested putting conditions on America’s defense of its key allies.
 
Advocating an ultra “America first” view of the world Mr Trump has also threatened to withdraw troops from Europe and Asia if those allies fail to pay more for American protection.
 
Mr Trump has flip-flopped on key issues including Syria. Most recently the candidate implied that he sees Bashar al-Assad, the country’s dictator, as the lesser evil when compared with US backed rebel opposition groups, some of whom have Islamist leanings.
 
He has promised to “bomb the hell” out of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
 
He would force key allies to pay more for their own defence and ease tensions with China and Russia. He has wavered on whether to send ground troops to fight Isil, but estimated in March that 20-30,000 would be necessary. He claims to have opposed the Iraq invasion although he briefly supported it before reversing course.
 
Energy and the environment
In a deeply disappointing development for environmentalists, Mr Trump plans to cancel billions of dollars in payments to the United Nations climate change programs.
 
He has said he would redirect the funds to pay for infrastructure projects in the US.
He has also promised to lift restrictions on fracking and boost American oil and natural gas production.
 
He would lift roadblocks to the Keystone Pipeline. Environmental activists fought hard to convince the Obama administration to stop the infrastructure project, warning against the effects of the increase in oil production.
 
Its path between Alberta, Canada and Nebraska in the United States was also said to damage fragile ecosystems.
On health
 
Mr Trump would replace affordable Care Act also known as “Obamacare”, with another system, the “Health Savings Accounts”. This plan would give more power to states over how to handle funds.
 
But beyond that critics have said that the Trump campaign has failed to explain how it differs significantly from Mr Obama’s healthcare plan, and how they would implement it.
 
Like with his much of his presidential campaign, Mr Trump appears to be asking the American people to trust him and wait and see.
 
On UK economy
 
While a Trump presidency is likely to add to global economic uncertainty, analysts believe the impact on the UK economy will – at least in the short term – be limited.
 
Capital Economics has left its forecasts for UK growth unchanged 1.5pc in 2017 and 2.5pc in 2018 following the US election result.
 
Outside the EU, the US is the UK’s biggest export market, with a fifth of UK goods and services sent to the world’s biggest economy, equivalent to 6pc of UK gross domestic product (GDP).
 
But Jonathan Loynes, an economist at Capital Economics, argues that there are “several reasons” why a Trump presidency would not be as painful for the UK as it might be for other European countries.
 
The plunge in the value of the pound following the Brexit vote has helped to improve Britain’s competitiveness. A weaker dollar against low yielding currencies could help the pound to “find a floor”, he argues, easing concerns about runaway inflation.
 
He added that the political consequences for the UK are also “less significant than in some other areas – most obviously the eurozone”.
 
He said: “The UK has already had its “revolution” against the establishment. Indeed, it appears that Mr Trump succeeded in his concerted attempts to make the Brexit vote influence the US election. On the contrary, mainstream politicians in the euro-zone, especially France, Italy and Germany, will be looking on with considerable unease while populist parties will take encouragement.
 
Trade with the wider world
 
The euro also gained ground against the dollar in early Wednesday trading. Analysts at Citi believe that further increases in this direction will “strengthen the case for continued easing” by the European Central Bank. It still expects its asset purchase programme to be extended by 6 months to September 2017 – at a lower monthly pace of €60bn (from €80bn previously).
 
Mr Trump would help to bring protectionist policies back into fashion.
 
Analysts at Investec believe the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) trade deal between the US and EU and Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) deal between the US and 11 other Pacific Rim nations, including Japan, Australia and Peru is now “dead in the water”.
 
This could start a new era of protectionism, according to economists at Citi. They said:
 
“US protectionism may divert emerging markets exports to the EU, strengthening protectionist forces in the EU as well, including at the Dutch and French elections in spring 2017. This could impact the upcoming Brexit negotiations: rising global protectionism limits the outside options for the UK and raises the values of strong ties with the EU.”
 
While President Obama said that Britain would be “at the back of the queue” for a post-Brexit trade deal, Mr Trump extended a more friendly hand.
 
In an interview with ITV during the election campaign he said: “I don’t want to say front [of the queue] or anything else – I would treat everybody fairly but it would not make any difference to me whether they were in the EU or not.
 
“You would certainly not be at the back of the queue, that I can tell you.”
Any trade war with economic partners around the world would have a direct knock-on effect for the US economy, too: “There is a high risk of recession if the game ends in a trade war, depressing stock prices and treasury yields for a sustained period,” said Rabobank analyst Bas van Geffen.
 
Other economies are also expected to cut interest rates or hike more slowly in response to the vote, in an effort to prop up growth: “With the euro appreciating, a further extension of European Central Bank quantitative easing at the next meeting in December looks increasingly inevitable while some kind of policy response from Bank of Japan and Swiss National Bank may also be forthcoming, possibly even foreign exchange intervention,” said HSBC economist Janet Henry.
 
On global security
 
Less forthcoming security support via NATO from the US could strengthen calls for a more potent EU security architecture, including higher defence spending. Less US support raises the uncertainty in particular at the Eastern borders of the EU.”
 
It is not certain whether his victory will influence upcoming elections in Europe, where discontent is growing.
 
Many say Marine Le Pen, the leader of the Front National, is on her way to the Élysée Palace next year.
 
Citi’s Christian Schulz and Guillaume Menuet say this remains unlikely. They argue: “Investors may fear that National Front President Marine Le Pen could make it a hat trick of major political surprises in 2017 following the Brexit vote and Trump’s victory.
 
In view, one of the key differences in France is that Mrs Le Pen is well-established and almost ‘mainstream‎’. She is not exactly a novelty in the French or European landscape and does not rank well with the majority of voters in terms of economic competency, even if she were to promise to ‘make France great again’.”
 
However, with December’s Italian constitutional referendum proving the next major political test, followed by the Dutch and French elections in the spring and the German Federal elections in the autumn, Investec has a simple message: “Establishments beware.”
 
Higher commodity prices in africa
Exotix predict that the “Trump effect” will produce higher commodity prices and a weaker dollar. According to the report, oil rich Angola will benefit from this. Other commodity exporters such as Ghana, Nigeria and Zambia may also benefit initially. Exotix warn that any initial benefit from increased commodity prices may be negated by protectionism and domestic currency weakness.
 
Africa becomes less of a priority
Sub-Saharan Africa will not be a foreign policy priority in the same way that it was to President Obama, Exotix speculates. (The report recalls that Obama visited Ghana in one of his first international trips in 2009.) What economic impact does this have? After an expected market sell-off on increasing risk aversion (which might be negative for frontier external debt markets, including higher-yielding countries like Ghana, Zambia and Angola) the expected impacts will flow through the usual channels of US policy settings and trade/remittances/investment.
 
Decreased interest rates may benefit Africa
Exotix expect a dovish path for US interest rates. The firm believe that this may be supportive of EM risk (as it keeps financing costs down), and therefore assist countries with big financing plans, like Nigeria, Angola and Ghana. However, this might be offset by growing country risk premia.
The report states that this could be caused by uncertainty over trade policy and threats of protectionism under Trump.
