Donald Trump is on the offensive and utilizing his status as the sole announced contender for 2024 to discuss his plans to reinstate his America First agenda and adopt new measures to address the deteriorating political atmosphere.
Trump has announced that he will hold his first public campaign event of the year on January 28 in Columbia, South Carolina, with Governor Henry McMaster, Senator Lindsey Graham, members of the state’s congressional delegation, and state lawmakers. He has also stated that he will begin unveiling a new leadership team.
According to the Associated Press, he will reveal his South Carolina leadership team during the event. South Carolina conducts an early primary that is significant in the campaign for the Republican nominee.
As Trump revs up his 2024 campaign, the former president explains what he would do if he returned to the White House.
In a video aired Wednesday on his social media site Truth Social, President Trump pledged to impose “aggressive new restrictions” on Chinese ownership of American energy, technology, farms, and other assets.
Newsweek reported that Trump” urged the U.S. to stop all future purchases in these “essential industries” and force China to sell all existing holdings that threaten national security”.
“If we don’t do this, the U.S. will be owned by China,” Trump said. “When I’m president, I will ensure that America’s future remains firmly in American hands, just as I did when I was president before.”
Trump pledged to prohibit the use of government funds to designate domestic speech as “misinformation” or “disinformation” last month.
As part of his pledge to crack down on “domestic censorship,” the former president stated that he would remove government employees participating in misinformation campaigns and restrict public funds for colleges engaging in “censorship activities.”
Trump said in a video posted to Truth Social that within hours of taking office he would “sign an executive order banning any federal department or agency from colluding with any organization, business or person, to censor, limit, categorize or impede the lawful speech of American citizens.”
He also urged House Republicans to send letters to the Biden administration and “every Silicon Valley tech giant” ordering them “not to destroy evidence of censorship,” stating, “Republicans have seized on the unprecedented number of migrants crossing the Southern border since Biden became president, and Trump has promised to address the immigration issue by going after the drug cartels.
“Our country is being poisoned from within by the drugs and all of the other crime that’s taken place. The drug cartels are waging war in America, and it’s now time for America to wage war on the cartels,” Trump said in a January 5 video.
“In this war, Joe Biden has sided against the United States and with the cartels,” he continued. “Biden’s open border policies are a deadly betrayal of our nation. When I am president, it will be the policy of the U.S. to take down the cartels.”
Trump also stated that he would instruct the Defense Department to employ special forces to “inflict maximum damage on cartel leadership, infrastructure, and operations” and that he would designate these groups as international terrorist organizations.
