Trump Releases Contract with American Voter in Gettysburg

As we stand on this hallowed ground where so many died in the service of freedom, we hope to follow Lincoln’s example in healing our divided nation, Donald Trump today said at the Eisenhower Complex in Gettysburg, PA. More soldiers on both sides died in three days here than in the entire VietNam war. Trump said he is not a politician and did not seek to be one. He said “our country has been good to me, and when I saw what was happening, I had to act.” Trump said he’s “seen the system up close and personal. For many years, I was was part of it.” He knows how Washington and Wall Street works, he said, “and I know how they’ve rigged the rules of the game against everyday Americans.”

Trump then released his Contract with the American Voter.

On his first day in office, Trump would take these “measures to clean up the corruption and special interest collusion in Washington, DC:”

  • FIRST, propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress;
  • SECOND, a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health);
  • THIRD, a requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated;
  • FOURTH, a 5 year-ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service;
  • FIFTH, a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government;
  • SIXTH, a complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.

He proposed these “actions to protect American workers:”

  • FIRST, I will announce my intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205
  • SECOND, I will announce our withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership
  • THIRD, I will direct my Secretary of the Treasury to label China a currency manipulator
  • FOURTH, I will direct the Secretary of Commerce and U.S. Trade Representative to identify all foreign trading abuses that unfairly impact American workers and direct them to use every tool under American and international law to end those abuses immediately
  • FIFTH, I will lift the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars’ worth of job-producing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal.
  • SIXTH, lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward
  • SEVENTH, cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure

He proposed these “five actions to restore security and the constitutional rule of law:”

  • FIRST, cancel every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum and order issued by President Obama
  • SECOND, begin the process of selecting a replacement for Justice Scalia from one of the 20 judges on my list, who will uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States
  • THIRD, cancel all federal funding to Sanctuary Cities
  • FOURTH, begin removing the more than 2 million criminal illegal immigrants from the country and cancel visas to foreign countries that won’t take them back
  • FIFTH, suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur. All vetting of people coming into our country will be considered extreme vetting.

During his first 100 days, Trump said he would work with Congress to secure the following legislation:

  1. Middle Class Tax Relief Act
  2. End Offshoring Act
  3. American Energy and Infrastructure Act
  4. School Choice and Education Opportunity Act
  5. Repeal and Replace ObamaCare Act
  6. Affordable Childcare and Eldercare Act
  7. End Illegal Immigration Act
  8. Restoring Community Safety Act
  9. Restoring National Security Act
  10. Clean Up Corruption in Washington, D.C. Act
