Trump's "Gettysburg Address"

Every voting American should listen to Trump's speech. From NewsMax:
GOP nominee Donald Trump Saturday outlined an ambitious plan for his first 100 days in office, saying on the first day alone he has several steps he plans to take to end Washington's corruption. "One thing we all know is that we will never solve our problems by relying on the same politicians who created these problems in the first place," Trump said to a supportive, cheering audience in historic Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. "Hillary Clinton is not running against me, she's running against change. And she's running against all of the American people and all of the American voters."

It's time to for Americans to "dream big" once again, said Trump, outlining in what he called a "contract between Donald J. Trump and the American voter," that begins with "bringing honesty, accountability and change to Washington, D.C."

The first six measures, Trump said, will be "immediately" pursued on his first day of his first term in office to "clean up the corruption and special interests collusion in Washington." Trump said he would institute:
  • "A Constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress;
  • A hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition, exempting military public safety and public health;
  • A requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated. Regulations are killing our country and our jobs. Fourth, a five-year ban on white house and congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service.
  • A lifetime ban on white house officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government;
  • A complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections. That's what's happening."
Also on the same day, Trump said he will begin taking "and really taking strongly" seven actions to protect American workers. (Read more.)
