America’s future is in the hands of the voters. Will they choose the man with a track record of improving the economy and making America first over the man with a radical agenda that could push the country further into socialism?
President Donald Trump this week released his agenda for his second term in office. The statement speaks of “boundless optimism and certainty in America’s greatness.” At the top of the list: jobs. The world’s reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic shut down businesses large and small across the world, resulting in job loss. The president proposes to create 10 million new jobs in 10 months, create one million new small businesses, cut taxes, and other things to get the economy going strong again, the way it was before COVID-19.
Speaking of COVID-19, President Trump’s agenda includes developing a vaccine by the end of the year and making sure health care workers have what they need to treat the disease.
One agenda item should be popular with Americans on both sides of the aisle: ending our reliance on China. The president proposes to bring back one million manufacturing jobs and provide tax credits to companies that bring these jobs back from China.
President Trump’s agenda also includes cutting prescription drug prices, providing school choice for children, “draining the swamp,” defending America’s law enforcement officers, ending illegal immigration, and looking toward the stars the way America used to by launching a space force to establish a permanent manned presence on the moon and sending the first manned mission to Mars.
At the RNC convention, which kicked off Monday night, various speakers made the case for President Trump’s reelection.
Republican Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, spoke directly to voters Monday night, saying that “this is election is about who can preserve the values, the principles, and institutions that Make America Great.”
“Don’t believe me?” Jordan said. “Look at what’s happening in America’s cities—all run by Democrats. Crime, violence, mob rule.”
“Democrats refuse to denounce the mob, and their response to the chaos?” Jordan continued. “Defund the police, defund border patrol, defund the military.”
Former NFL player Herschel Walker, who spoke via video, said that President Trump is not a racist.
“It hurts my soul to hear the terrible names that people call Donald. The worst one is ‘racist,’” said Mr. Walker, who is a Black American. “I take it as a personal insult that people would think I would have a 37-year friendship with a racist.”
He said he hadn’t had a casual relationship with Mr. Trump but “a deep personal friendship.”
“Growing up in the deep south, I have seen racism up close. I know what it is. And it isn’t Donald Trump,” he said.
Senator Tim Scott also spoke on Monday night, directing his remarks at the president’s opponents.
In one of the most stinging lines of the night, the South Carolina senator declared: “Make no mistake: Joe Biden and Kamala Harris want a cultural revolution. A fundamentally different America.”
Scott warned that if a Biden-Harris ticket is successful, they will “turn our country into a socialist utopia.”
