Donald Trump's First 100 Day: Taxes, Trade, and Conflicts of Interest

Over the last three days I have bookmarked more than 35 articles related to the incoming Trump administration. I have winnowed a number of them down to three categories: taxes, trade, and conflicts of interest.

Republicans have a massive plan to overhaul the tax code — here's how it would work
Democrats Plotting ‘Collision Course’ With Trump’s Tax Plan

Paul Krugman Is Right Here - The Danger Of Trumps' Trade Plans Is The Reverse China Shock
Stocks Could Suffer As Trump Trade Policy Takes Shape
A Trump Tariff Wall Would Help a Little, But Hurt a Lot
Just how far will Trump go on China and Mexico?
What Trump's Twitter diplomacy means for Australia and China

Conflicts of Interest:
Donald Trump's sons behind nonprofit selling access to president-elect
Eric Trump Foundation flouts charity standards
Donald Trump To Close Foundation To Avoid Potential Conflicts Of Interest
Trump Plans To Dissolve His Foundation; N.Y. Attorney General Pushes Back
Trump Vows to Dissolve Controversial Foundation (Democrats Say it Isn't Enough)
Trump announces plan to close foundation

I have also included three other categories of articles:Trump himself, the media, and the Democratic Party.

The Donald
Disrupter-in-chief: How Trump has made us rethink everything

The Media:

Trump Adopting Same Behavior He Criticized Clinton For
The Media Blew Overall, Yes, But There Were Noteworthy Exceptions, And Here They Are

Democratic Party:
Obstructionism is the path to disaster
The Democratic Party needs to offer an alternative vision of America to US voters, a vision that takes into consideration the concerns of a large segment of its population and not just to those of the party's liberal wing.
