Donald Trump is on offense and taking the opportunity as the only declared candidate for 2024 to talk about his plans to bring back his America First agenda and enact new measures to address the disastrous existing political climate.
Trump has made comments to the media that he will also begin rolling out a new leadership team announcing that he will hold his first public campaign event of the year in Columbia, South Carolina, on January 28 with Governor Henry McMaster, Senator Lindsey Graham, members of the state’s congressional delegation and state lawmakers.
The Associated Press reported that he will announce his South Carolina leadership team at the event. South Carolina holds a crucial early primary in the race for the GOP nomination.
As Trump ramps up his 2024 campaign, here’s what the former president says he has in store if he returns to the Oval Office.
In a video posted Wednesday to Truth Social, his social media platform, Trump vowed to enact “aggressive new restrictions” on Chinese ownership related to American energy, technology, farmland, and other assets.
Newsweek reported that Trump” urged the U.S. to stop all future purchases in these “essential industries” and force China to sell all existing holdings that threaten national security”.
“If we don’t do this, the U.S. will be owned by China,” Trump said. “When I’m president, I will ensure that America’s future remains firmly in American hands, just as I did when I was president before.”
Newsweek went on:
Last month, Trump vowed to ban using federal money to label domestic speech as “misinformation” or “disinformation.”
As part of his promise to crack down on “domestic censorship,” the former president said he would fire federal officials who have been involved in disinformation efforts and cut federal funding for universities that have engaged in “censorship activities.”
Trump said in a video posted to Truth Social that within hours of taking office he would “sign an executive order banning any federal department or agency from colluding with any organization, business or person, to censor, limit, categorize or impede the lawful speech of American citizens.”
He also urged House Republicans to send letters to the Biden administration and “every Silicon Valley tech giant” ordering them “not to destroy evidence of censorship, saying, “Republicans have seized on the unprecedented number of migrants coming to the Southern border since Biden was inaugurated as president, and Trump has promised to respond to the immigration issue by going after the drug cartels.
“Our country is being poisoned from within by the drugs and all of the other crime that’s taken place. The drug cartels are waging war in America, and it’s now time for America to wage war on the cartels,” Trump said in a January 5 video.
“In this war, Joe Biden has sided against the United States and with the cartels,” he continued. “Biden’s open border policies are a deadly betrayal of our nation. When I am president, it will be the policy of the U.S. to take down the cartels.”
Trump also said he would order the Defense Department to use special forces to “inflict maximum damage on cartel leadership, infrastructure and operations” and declare those groups as foreign terrorist organizations.
RSBN reported details about Trump’s platform as well, when he made comments at his announcement about his agenda:
“The 45th president also reaffirmed his commitment to parental rights, maintaining his promise to fight against “gender insanity” and protect women’s sports.”
“When I’m in the White House, our schools will cease pushing critical race theory as they were. Radical..gender insanity or if they do that they will lose all federal funding but we’ll get them to stop,” Trump said. “And I will be the president to finally fix education in America.”
“We will not let men, as an example, participate in women’s sports,” he added. “No men, no men.”
If elected the 47th president, Trump pledged to lift the Biden administration’s tyrannical Covid-19 vaccine mandates on the military, saying, “we will abolish every Biden Covid mandate and re-hire every patriot who was fired from our military, with an apology and full backpay.”
He also reaffirmed his commitment to not drag the country into senseless wars, adding that “to protect our people from the unthinkable threat of nuclear weapons and hypersonic missiles, the United States must also build a state of the art, next-generation missile defense shield.”
To fight Washington’s swamp, Trump vowed to clean out “the festering, rotten corruption of Washington D.C.” by pushing for a Constitutional amendment for term limits. He would also ask for a permanent ban on taxpayer funding of campaigns and a “lifetime ban on lobbying by former members of Congress and cabinet members.”
Addressing election integrity issues, Trump “will immediately demand voter ID, same-day voting, and only paper ballots” to eradicate cheating and fraud.
The “National Greatness Agenda” would combat the catastrophic radical policies of the Democrat Party and “restore the spirit of our nation” that has withered under Joe Biden, who Trump called “the face of left-wing failure and Washington corruption.”
Trump affirmed that he will again prioritize bringing supply chains and manufacturing back to the United States “as we were strongly doing during the Trump administration, and we will systematically bring back wealth, health, and success to the American middle class, and to America itself,” the president added.
