The world is still getting used to the idea that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump won the 2016 elections, but Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is already making plans to take advantage of the sea of the Republican victories.
During an interview on MSNBC's Morning Joe, the Kentucky senator gave a pretty solid hint as to how he believes he and the other Republicans will spend Trump's first days in office.
“I have a prediction to make this morning,” said Paul. “I think were going to spend the first month passing the repeal of Obama regulations, and they will be signed by Trump. I think there will be half a dozen regulations repealed in the first week of congress, and this is something I'm excited to do...”
Paul is one of the Republicans who won reelection last night, and did so with 57 precent of the vote, compared to his Democratic opponent Jim Gray, who only took 43 percent. His victory was hardly in doubt, however, as Paul was reportedly attracting not just Republicans, but Democrats as well.
Now, with a majority at his side, Paul is likely to be one of the Republicans spearheading much of the deregulation that Republicans have been promised throughout their campaigns. If Paul's appearance on Morning Joe is any indication, then the Senator will attempt to shrink government quickly and often.
