Trump’s Gettysburg speech draws criticism, praise

October 22, 2016

Gettysburg, Pa.-Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Saturday afternoon gave an important speech about what he would do in his first 100 days in office after he is inaugurated on Jan. 20 of 2017 if he wins the Nov. 8 presidential election, which right now, looks unlikely against Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Trump promised to cut corruption in the government, calling his rival Hillary Clinton corrupt for mishandling emails while she was Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013, and accepting gifts to favor the Clinton Foundation. He also spoke sternly about term limits for every member of Congress, regardless of the their political party. He spoke about ending federal funding through Congress to sanctuary cities. Sanctuary cities are cities where prosecution of undocumented immigrants is not allowed. 

Trump’s speech was attended by former New York City mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, who is one of Trump’s biggest allies and surrogates. With 17 days left to the election, we’ll see if this speech can change the polling numbers in Pa., Ohio, Fla, N.C., Ariz., etc.
