If he gets to be Prez and does even half the stuff he promises to do, the USA has a chance of survival and more importantly we will have escaped a nuclear war and an uncertain future. Plenty more info at original link.
Trump Lays Out His Plan For First 100 Days In Office: Here Are The Highlights
In a keynote speech in Gettysburg, Pa., about his plans for his first 100 days in office, Donald Trump laid out what he sees as the the core priorities of a Trump presidency, while focusing in the early part of the speech on attacks against Hillary Clinton and Wall Street, and repeating his core message by telling his audience that Washington and Wall Street are “rigged” against him and that he is the candidate to bring “the change that has to come."
"I am not a politician,” Trump told the crowd. “But when I saw the trouble our country was in, I felt I had to act.” Then, moments after promising Americans that he represented a break from the status quo, he promised to sue a number of women who have come forward to accuse him of sexual assault, calling them liars.....
Trump also railed against the media for seeking to concentrate its power through mergers and for colluding with his accusers to align against his campaign. He added a new threat to his repeated criticisms of U.S. media companies, when he vowed that in his administration such mega mergers as that between AT&T and Time Warner, which was just announced, would not pass as it leads to "too much concentration of power in the hands of too few."
"As an example of the power structure I'm fighting, AT&T is buying Time Warner and thus CNN, a deal we will not approve in my administration because it's too much concentration of power in the hands of too few."
He would also break up the NBC-Comcast merger saying "deals like this destroy democracy," and slammed every trade deal the US has ever done as "horrible."
In terms of soundbites, the following quotes stood out.
On the economy:
"Change has to come from outside our very broken system."
"We've doubled our national debt to $20 trillion under President Obama."
"Nearly 1 in 4 Americans in their prime earning years isn't even working."
"I am asking the American people to dream big once again."
"Will withdraw the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
"Will cancel every un-Constitutional executive action, memorandum, and order issued by President Obama."
"We will cancel all federal funding of sanctuary cities."
"The veterans will finally be taken care of properly."
"If we follow these steps, we will once more have a government of, by, and for the people."
"Fully repeal ObamaCare and replace it with health savings accounts."
"We are going to end Common Core."
On tax reform:
"Tax forms will be greatly simplified."
"When they know there are consequences, our companies will stop leaving the United States."
On voter fraud:
"1.8 million dead people are registered to vote. And some of them are voting."
"2.8 million people are registered in more than one state... 14% of non-citizens are registered to vote."
"According to Pew, there are 24 million voter registrations in the United States that are either invalid or significantly inaccurate."
"Just been learned on video that the violent protests at some of my rallies...were caused by paid DNC & Clinton campaign operatives."
"We're going to suspect immigration from terror-prone regions."
"Hillary Clinton should have been precluded from running... but the FBI and the Justice Dept. covered up her crimes."
"Hillary Clinton is not running against me. She's running against change."
"HillaryClinton is... running against all of the American people and all of the American voters.
In terms of actual political measures that Trump would propose and/or enact, he listed the following six:
"A Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress."
"A hiring freeze on all federal employees."
"A requirement that for every new federal regulation, 2 existing regulations must be eliminated."
