Trump listed his policy plans for the first 100 days of his presidency in a campaign speech in historic Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, but also defiantly raised personal grievances, describing how he would address them from the White House. "As an example of the power structure I'm fighting, AT&T is buying Time Warner and thus CNN, a deal we will not approve in my administration because it's too much concentration of power in the hands of too few," Trump said.
