In the world of business, When you take over a failing business,
This is right out of the book!
The first priority is to create cash flow to be able to go forward.
President Trump did that by lowering taxes, thereby creating jobs while bringing corporations back to help create more jobs.
The second priority is to remove employees that are doing it wrong and refuse to be retrained and build a solid core of your own supporters.
President Trump is still working on that one, but getting closer. It is hard to remove some vested employees due to congress and federal rules.
The third priorty is to remove, repair or replace any long running deals you predecessors have muffed up like Nafta, JCPOA, TPP, and others so you can implement your own profitable Deals using tarriffs and other means smartly.
