NEW YORK (AP) — President-elect Donald Trump is telling the American people that he is assembling a Cabinet made up of "patriots."

Trump says in a video released late Monday that his agenda "will be based on a simple core principle: putting America first."

He is reiterating a number of his promises for the first 100 days of his administration, including vows to negotiate new trade deals, remove regulations on businesses and establish a five-year ban on executive officials becoming lobbyists.

Notably missing from his promises is his pledge to repeal the Affordable Care Act and his vow to build a southern border wall with Mexico.

Trump has yet to hold the traditional news conference that previous presidents-elect have done within days of winning on Election Day.
