Ahead of United States general elections come November 2020, the Trump campaign has released a 9-point agenda for Trump’s second term if re-elected.
The Trump campaign has released a 9-point wish-list for President Trump’s second term if re-elected.
Trump’s release of his second term agenda comes ahead of the Republican party’s National Convention on Monday night August 24, and comes after Trump has repeatedly struggled to detail what his second term might look like, which has left critics questioning whether he even had an agenda.
The campaign team, and Trump himself, plan to promote this agenda throughout the convention which will hold throughout this week.
A key criticism of the Democratic National Convention last week is that the Biden campaign failed to substantively lay out the policies Joe Biden would implement if president rather focusing heavily on Biden’s character.
Below is the Trump’s agenda:
1. Health care and coronavirus:
-Lower prescription drug prices and insurance premiums.

-Allow expensing deductions for essential industries, like pharmaceuticals and robotics, that bring their manufacturing to the U.S.
-No federal contracts for companies who outsource to China.
-Provide school choice to every child in America.
5. “Drain the swamp”:
-Pass congressional term limits.
-“Expose Washington’s money trail and delegate powers.”
6. “Defend our police”:
-Fully fund and hire more police and law enforcement officers.
