Donald Trump will be walking into the Oval Office with expanded executive powers we haven't really seen before.
He's promised to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, pull the U.S. out of the Paris climate agreement, get rid of many of the current environmental regulations and start the deportation of millions of undocumented immigrants. And he can do all of that without any help from Paul Ryan in the House or Mitch McConnell in the Senate.
