This weekend, Donald Trump delivered a detailed speech regarding his plans for his first months in office. One of his first objectives will be to end Washington corruption.
“We will never solve our problems by relying on the same politicians who created these problems in the first place,” he said to a cheering audience in Gettysburg, PA. “Hillary Clinton is not running against me, she’s running against change. And she’s running against all of the American people and all of the American voters.”
The anti-establishment candidate argued that the election system is “rigged” and insisted that Hillary should not be allowed to run for office given her extensive criminal background.
Trump’s first steps against corruption will be to institute term limits for Congressmen, reduce the federal workforce, and require that every new federal regulation replace at least two existing regulations.
Trump also promised to ban White House officials from lobbying on behalf of foreign governments and to ban foreign lobbyists from raising money for US elections.
Next, Trump outlined a 7-part plan to protect American workers from politicians who “don’t have their interests at heart.” This plan includes:
• Complete renegotiation of NAFTA
• Withdrawal from the TPP
• Address Chinese currency manipulation
• Identify and stop all foreign trading abuses
• Revive the mining industry by lifting restrictions and “Obama-Clinton roadblocks”
Trump added that he would cancel the “billions in payments” we currently deliver to UN climate change programs, instead using that money to “fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure.”
In addition, Trump vowed to “cancel every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum, and order issued by President Obama.” This process will start by filling the late Justice Scalia’s position in the Supreme Court.
Next, Trump plans to cancel all federal funding of sanctuary cities and begin removing the millions of illegal immigrants currently living in the US – starting with criminal illegals.
“We’re going to suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur,” he continued. “Hillary Clinton wants to increase the number of those thousands and thousands currently pouring in by 55%. Radical Islamic terror is right around the corner. We have to be so tough, so smart, so vigilant. We can’t allow that to happen. We have enough problems.”
To cheers and applause, Trump reiterated his plan to build a wall along the country’s southern border with Mexico.
In regards to the economy, Trump intends to pass the Middle Class Tax Relief and Simplification Act – an economic plan that will create 25 million jobs and result in 4% annual economic growth while lifting restrictions on American energy. Middle class families with two children will see a 35% reduction in taxes, he noted, and that extra money will go back into the economy.
The billionaire also plans to lower taxes on corporations as a way to lure businesses back to the states. “Some companies are actually leaving, not only because taxes are so high, but because they can’t get their money, and they are actually leaving to get their money. We are going to simplify that.”
When companies relocate or outsource work to other countries, it causes unemployment here in the US. “We will establish tariffs that when they do that, there will be consequences. We’ll work with them, we’ll be nice, we’ll be fair, but there have to be consequences.”
In regards to education, Trump plans to abolish Common Core education standards and institute the Education Opportunity Act, legislation that would give parents more options when selecting schools for their children. The plan would also make technical and vocational schools more affordable – something that has been “totally forgotten about in this country.”
Further topics included:
- Obamacare, which must be repealed and replaced
- The “depleted” military, which must be rebulit
- America’s cyber infrastructure, which must be protected from hackers
Before the end of his speech, Trump threatened to file lawsuits against all the women who have accused him of innappropriate sexual behavior. The billionaire’s aides explained that Trump will focus the remaining two weeks of his campaign on the measures announced in his Gettysburg speech.
“I am asking the American people to rise above the noise and the clutter of our broken politics, and to embrace that great faith and optimism that has always been the central ingredient in the American character,” said Trump. “I am asking you to dream big.”
Editor’s note: This is a good summary, beats the hell out of Hillary’s outline of complete chaos. Its ambitious, but it will piss off a lot of people.
