The second term of President Donald Trump is going to be a busy one if his just-released agenda subtitled “Fighting for You” is any indication.
The Trump campaign set forth the president’s core priorities in the form of 49 bullet points in 10 categories, which he will tee up during his nomination acceptance speech at the Republican National convention speech on Thursday night and further explain through the fall on the campaign trail.
Under the jobs heading, Trump aims to create 10 million new jobs and one million new small businesses. In addition to developing a COVID vaccine, the agenda separately calls for a return to normal in 2021, which should be a huge relief for many Americans subject to various forms of economy-crushing lockdowns at the state and local level.
“President Trump’s boundless optimism and certainty in America’s greatness is reflected in his second-term goals and stands in stark contrast to the gloomy vision of America projected by Joe Biden and Democrats,” the campaign explained.

Trump also intends to implement various measures to further end America’s reliance on the China manufacturing supply chain, including bringing back one million outsourced jobs. He will continue to implement an American First foreign policy, much to the dismay of Deep State apologists like Biden-supporting Republican Jeff Flake and similar D.C. rent-seekers (a U.K. term that generally means those who seek to profit off of the government, i.e., the taxpayer, by doing minimal actual work).
With that in mind, the president is calling for congressional term limits as part of draining the swamp.
The president has vowed to increase funding to hire more police, rather than defunding them as the left wants to do, and continue efforts to enforce immigration law. This includes blocking “Illegal Immigrants from Becoming Eligible for Taxpayer-Funded Welfare, Healthcare, and Free College Tuition.” ICE will continue to deport illegal immigrant gang members and dismantle human trafficking networks under a second Trump administration.
With public sector teacher’s unions around the country refusing to go back to work for political reasons, Trump wants to provide school choice for every child in America, and eliminate the anti-America propaganda unfortunately embedded in much of the curricula.
He also intends to take additional steps to improve the country’s healthcare delivery system, including making it more cost-efficient.
There is no mention of addressing pervasive Big Tech censorship of conservatives among the bullet points, however, which is disappointing.
An avid watcher of Fox News, Trump may have taken to heart Steve Hilton’s editorial earlier in August when the host of The Next Revolution chided Team Trump for apparently lacking “exciting policy announcements” and thus sleepwalking into a Biden presidency.
Donald Trump is the only president in recent memory to live up to his campaign promises. Should the U.S. Senate fall into Democrat hands in November, however, it is going to be very challenging to enact this ambitious agenda. With that mind, the Trump-leaning constituency needs to be cognizant of down-ballot GOP races in their voting decisions.
