Here's just some of what Donald Trump has pledged throughout the campaign:

Immigration

·         Ban all Muslims from entering the United States, although he said he would make an exception for London's new Muslim mayor, Sadiq Khan

·         Immediately suspend immigration from "any nation that has been compromised by terrorism" until proven vetting mechanisms have been put in place

·         Build a wall along the US-Mexico border and make Mexico pay for it

·         Stop illegal immigration

·         Triple the number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers

·         Deport an estimated 11 million unauthorised Mexican immigrants and their children — even if they were born in the United States — starting with those who have committed serious crimes

 Donald J. Trump 

@realDonaldTrump

In my speech on protecting America I spoke about a temporary ban, which includes suspending immigration from nations tied to Islamic terror.

7:10 AM - 14 Jun 2016

 

Trade

·         Withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership

·         Renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement and "walk away" from it if the US does not get what it wants

·         Increase tariffs on Chinese imports to 45 per cent

 Donald J. Trump 

@realDonaldTrump

I will renegotiate NAFTA. If I can’t make a great deal, we’re going to tear it up. We’re going to get this economy running again. #Debate

12:45 PM - 20 Oct 2016

 

Law and order

·         End crime: "The crime and violence … will soon, and I mean very soon, will come to an end"

·         Appoint new supreme court judges who "will be pro-life, they will have a conservative bent, they will be protecting the second amendment"

·         Stop the government dictating what types of firearms "good, honest people" are allowed to own

·         Reduce gun violence by empowering law-abiding gun owners to defend themselves

·         Appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton's emails, also threatening to jail her

 Donald J. Trump 

@realDonaldTrump

The 2nd Amendment is under siege. We need SCOTUS judges who will uphold the US Constitution. #Debate #BigLeagueTruth

12:10 PM - 20 Oct 2016

 

Health

·         Scrap the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare

·         Allow the states to take back control of abortion laws. Says public funding of abortion providers is "an insult to people of conscience"

·         Punish doctors who carry out illegal abortions. At one point he also advocated punishing women who have illegal abortions, but he appeared to backtrack on that

·         Fix America's mental health system, which he says will prevent many mass shootings



Donald J. Trump 

@realDonaldTrump

I am going to repeal and replace ObamaCare. We will have MUCH less expensive and MUCH better healthcare. With Hillary, costs will triple!

10:00 PM - 2 Nov 2016

 

Economy and jobs

·         Implement "reforms to add millions of new jobs"

·         Reduce the top tax bracket from 39.6 per cent to 33 per cent

·         Cut the corporate tax rate from 35 per cent to 15 per cent

·         Introduce "massive" tax cuts for working and middle-income Americans

·         Allow families to deduct the average cost of childcare from their taxes, including stay-at-home parents


Donald J. Trump 

@realDonaldTrump

Vast numbers of manufacturing jobs in Pennsylvania have moved to Mexico and other countries. That will end when I win!

11:33 AM - 2 Aug 2016

 

Defence and national security

·         Try and improve the relationship with Russia: "If Russia and the United States got on well and went after ISIS, that would be good"

·         Submit a new budget to rebuild America's "depleted military"

·         Make countries that benefit from America's defence force cover some of the cost

·         Pursue "aggressive joint and coalition military operations to crush and destroy ISIS"

·         Work with other countries to cut off funding to ISIS

·         Initiate cyberwarfare to disrupt and disable ISIS propaganda and recruiting

·         Order an immediate review of all US cyber vulnerabilities

Nuclear weapons

·         Speak to North Korea to try and stop their nuclear program, which would be a major shift in US policy towards the isolated nation

Climate change

·         Renegotiate America's role in the UN global climate accord struck in Paris last year

Education

·         Scrap the Common Core program, which dictates what students should learn in each grade. He says curriculum decisions and standards should be made at a local level

I haven't looked any further to determine if it is true but several people from a US-based forum that I follow have said that the President's tax returns are required to be made public. If that is the case then we will see them in due course.

Most likely on the money. I doubt much of significance will change in the country. This doesn't change my enthusiasm for visiting the country that's for sure.

All sounds good to me, Trump. Seems to be cutting back heavily on taxes, yet spending heavily. I can't see any problems ahead.

I can't wait to see how a 45% tariff on imported Chinese goods works out and the cost to Australia for US defence spending to name just two of his initiatives . 
That should be very interesting .

The Justice Department lawsuit against Donald Trump, his father, Fred Trump, and the Trump company, which owned 39 buildings with 15,000 apartments, actually marks the first mention of Donald J. Trump in The New York Times. The front page headline on Oct. 16, 1973, said: “Major Landlord Accused of Antiblack Bias in City.” Regarding the charges, Trump was quoted: “They are absolutely ridiculous.”

According to Kranish and Fisher, the Justice Department lawsuit was “one of the most significant racial bias cases of the era.” It was based on evidence gathered by testers for the New York City Human Rights Commission, who documented that black people were told no apartments were available in Trump properties while white testers at the same time were immediately offered apartments. In a sampling of 10 Trump buildings, only 1 to 3.5 percent of the occupants were minorities, making it one of the strongest cases the Justice Department had ever seen for violations of the Fair Housing Act.

All the Justice Department wanted was to obtain a settlement in which Trump and his father would promise not to discriminate. But Trump instead hired Roy Cohn, a notoriously combative attorney, and countersued the Justice Department for $100 million ($500 million in today’s dollars) for making false and misleading statements. But his allegations were dismissed by the courts, and two years of litigation later, Trump decided in 1975 to settle before the case went to trial.

“The settlement was much like what the Trumps could initially have gotten,” the book says. As part of the deal, the Trumps were required to place ads assuring minorities that they would have equal access to housing. Trump initially balked at paying for the ads but ultimately was forced to do so.

Newspapers at the time declared it was a victory for the government, with headlines such as “Minorities Win Housing Suit.” The Justice Department said the decree was “one of the most far-reaching ever negotiated.” A New York Times article determined that the agreement had “stronger teeth” than a settlement reached with another real estate firm, the Lefrak Organization, in 1971.

The book notes that Trump, in an interview, falsely claimed “there were many, many landlords that were sued under that case.” Similarly, in the debate, Trump claimed “that was a lawsuit brought against many real estate firms.” But the suit was squarely aimed at the Trumps and their company; it was titled: United States of America v. Fred C. Trump, Donald Trump and Trump Management, Inc.

In a transcript of the April 21, 2016, interview, one can see how Kranish called out Trump when he tried to claim the lawsuit was against many landlords.

Donald Trump: Yeah, that was, yeah. But I meant that was one of many cases.

Michael Kranish: What other cases? The LeFrak case was settled, and you were upset about the Lefrak case being settled, the Sam Lefrak case.

Donald Trump: Oh, I see. You mean they settled it sooner?

Michael Kranish: He settled previously, and you had cited in your book that, you know, this other landlord, Sam Lefrak, settled the case. You didn’t want to do that.

Moreover, the Trumps were back in court three years later, as the Justice Department in 1978 alleged that they had reneged on the agreement to allow minorities to rent properties. The case was not formally closed until 1982.

Looking forward to the realisation by his supporters, like many who have invested in The Donald over the decades, that they have been Trumped.
