Trump Unveils Plan for “National Greatness”
(RepublicanDaily.org) – Former President Donald Trump only announced his plans to run again in 2024 last week, but he’s not wasting any time in rebuilding his political momentum. Last weekend, he spoke to Republicans in Las Vegas, and told them he has a plan to restore the US to greatness. Can he build on GOP progress in the midterms and retake the White House?
Trump Sets His Agenda
Months of speculation over a Trump 2024 campaign ended on November 15, when the former president announced he does plan to run. He followed that with the unveiling of his “National Greatness Agenda,” an ambitious plan to clear up the wreckage left by the Biden Administration and to “restore America’s strength and standing on the world stage.” His plans include:
- Ending all COVID vaccine mandates
- Cutting federal funding to woke schools that teach critical race theory
- Introduce voter ID laws to safeguard elections
- Mandating paper ballots and one-day voting
- Making the US energy-independent again
- Lifetime lobbying ban for former cabinet members and legislators
- A US space mission to Mars
Asked about building Republican support with suburban voters, Trump said 222 of the candidates he endorsed in this month’s midterm elections won their races, while just 16 lost. He also pointed out Republican candidates picked up over five million more votes than Democrats, and said the GOP is “much bigger and more powerful” than before he entered politics.
Good News for Israel Too
On November 19, Trump spoke over a video link to the Republican Jewish Coalition’s annual leadership meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada. In that speech, he promised to restore the relationship between the US and Israel, which he said: “is not strong now.” Accusing President Biden of having betrayed the Jewish state, he said a new Trump Administration will build on his first term achievements, which included recognizing Israel’s occupation of the Golan Heights and the historic move of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Trump remains the most popular Republican leader by a wide margin. A new Harvard Harris poll shows he’s the most popular politician in the US, with 44% of Americans having a favorable or very favorable opinion of him — ahead of President Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who are both at 43%.
The poll also found 46% want Trump to win the 2024 Republican nomination, well ahead of his closest rival, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R), and if he ran against Biden in 2024, he’d win by 44% to 42%. It’s an early start to his campaign, but an encouraging one.
