In the same place where Abraham Lincoln delivered one of the most iconic speeches in American history, Donald Trump unveiled his 100-day action plan to Make America Great Again.
“We are a very divided nation,” he told the crowd of local Republicans, adding that “I am a politician and have never wanted to be a politician, but when I saw the trouble our country was in, I knew I could not stand by and watch any longer.”
Describing himself as an outsider who also understands the inner mechanics of our “very broken system,” Trump said that he is capable of delivering “the kind of change that only arrives once in a lifetime.”
Saturday’s speech was slated as an opportunity for the Republican presidential nominee to offer some specific details on how exactly he plans to enact such change. However, Trump spent the first 14 minutes or so railing against what he claims is a 'rigged system', warning against the widely debunked threat of voter fraud and accusing everyone from Democratic rival Hillary Clinton to the FBI, AT&T, Amazon and, above all, the media of corruption.
“They are trying desperately to suppress my vote,” he said. “They are trying to poison the mind of the American voter.”
Before outlining the list of actions he plans to take after his inauguration, Trump first announced what he intends to do immediately after the election: sue each of the women who’ve publicly accused him of sexual assault, unwanted groping, kissing and other inappropriate behaviour.
Trump also listed seven actions he’ll be talking to protect American workers on his first day in office, which include announcing his intention to totally renegotiate NAFTA, which he has announced in virtually every stump speech and debate throughout his campaign, as well as withdrawing the country from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the controversial trade deal that has not yet been ratified by the U.S.
On day one, Trump vowed also to begin deporting criminal illegal immigrants [drug dealers, gang heads, killers] and suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur, warning that radical Islamic terror is right around the corner.
Perhaps most notable is the End Illegal Immigration Act, which, he said, “fully funds the construction of a wall on our southern border“.
