WASHINGTON -- President-elect Donald Trump has a long list of proposals he wants to tackle during his first 100 days in office.

The president-elect was criticized during the campaign for being short on details when it comes to sweeping policy changes.

But one of the best places to look for information on what Trump plans to do initially is an address he gave Oct. 22 in Gettysburg, Penn.

Trump made it clear that illegal immigration is still near the top of his list. He announced his intent to move ahead with his controversial proposal to build a massive wall.

He said he will begin the process on Day One by ordering the removal of more than two million illegal immigrants with criminal backgrounds, even though experts say the actual number of criminal immigrants is less than 200,000.

Trump’s advisers say he’ll spend his first few hours in the oval office undoing more than two dozen of President Barack Obama's executive orders.

He's expected to take aim at the Affordable Care Act known as "Obamacare."  Trump says he has another plan to be administered by the states, forming Health Savings Accounts for the uninsured. But critics say it’s hardly a well-formulated plan.

Other proposals include:

  • Suspending immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur
  • Imposing a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on congress
  • Placing a five-year ban on White House and congressional officials from becoming lobbyists
  • Putting a hiring freeze on federal employees (not including military, public safety, and public health workers)
  • Canceling billions of dollars in payments to the United Nations climate change programs
  • Lifting restrictions on gas fracking and boost American production.

And on his complaints about NATO and key American alliances, Trump has threatened to withdraw troops from Europe and Asia if those allies fail to pay more for American support.
