Donald Trump's top 10 election promises

Donald Trump has won the US presidential election, but what does his victory mean for the world?

The controversies during his 2016 campaign may have overshadowed the election promises of the property tycoon and reality TV star, who was often accused of providing scant detail about his actual policies.

Here's a reminder of 10 of his most notable promises.

  • Build the wall
    One of the most enduring promises of Mr Trump's campaign has been to build an enormous wall along the border between the United States and Mexico - and to force Mexico to pay for it. The cost of such a project has been estimated as being extremely high and Mr Trump has never given details on how he would make Mexico cover it.
  • Imprison Hillary Clinton
    Mr Trump has vowed to prosecute his Democratic rival for her use of a private email server while serving as Secretary of State. In the second presidential debate, he reiterated this threat - adding that if he was in power at the time, Ms Clinton would "be in jail".
  • Ban Muslim immigration
    Mr Trump has called for a "a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States" and for surveillance of mosques in the country. He also hasn't ruled out creating a database of Muslims that reside in the US. Critics claim these policies would be in violation of the Constitution's First Amendment, which guarantees the right to freely exercise religion.
  • Limit free speech and the free media
    Mr Trump has promised to "open up libel laws", making it easier for him to sue and win money from agencies that publish negative stories about him. Addressing the protection of the freedom of the press, also guaranteed in the First Amendment, Mr Trump said: "With me, they're not protected, because I'm not like other people."
  • Force military to commit war crimes
    Mr Trump has vowed to reintroduce waterboarding, or simulated drowning, of prisoners of war and usher in "worse" torture techniques. He has also promised to kill the families of terrorists. When military personnel responded to the rhetoric saying they would refuse to carry out international war crimes, Mr Trump replied: "They won't refuse. They're not gonna refuse me."
  • Cancel trade agreements
    Mr Trump has been highly critical of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deals, which he doesn't think are favourable enough for the US. He's also suggested the imposing of tariffs on goods exported from China and Mexico.
  • Reshape global alliances
    Insisting allies such as Japan and Saudi Arabia aren't paying for the alliances they have with the US, Mr Trump has said such nations will be forced to pay more or face a US pull-out. He suggested such countries obtaining nuclear weapons wouldn't be a "bad thing" for the US. He has also said that NATO may be "obsolete" and must also pay more for US "protection".
  • Reduce abortions
    Planned Parenthood, a non-profit organisation similar to New Zealand's Family Planning, will have its funding pulled as the leading abortion provider in the US, Mr Trump has promised. He also said he would introduce "some form of punishment" for women who have abortions.
  • Cancel environmental and sustainability agreements
    After famously tweeting his theory that climate change is a myth invented by the Chinese to hurt US manufacturers, Mr Trump has stated he will "cancel" a recent international agreement to reduce global warming. The Paris Agreement went into effect on November 4, signed by 193 countries.
  • Repeal Obamacare
    A long-time opponent of President Obama's Affordable Care Act, which expands and improves access to healthcare in the US, Mr Trump will abolish it. He's said he will replace it with something "terrific" that is "so much better". Details on this alternative have been slim, although he has also talked of diminishing the regulatory walls between states for health insurance, making plans available nationally instead of regionally.
