President Trump isn’t taking anything for granted as he prepares to win re-election.
And he’s just taken the gloves off for real.
This surprise move was the biggest bomb drop Pelosi and Schumer never saw coming.
President Trump was elected to office in 2016 on a specific campaign platform about restoring the United States to greatness.
And since taking office, he’s worked diligently to achieve each of his key election promises.
But much of that work remains unfinished, and he’s running for re-election to see it concluded in his second term.
As the 2020 elections are just around the corner, Democrats are coming out of the woodwork to run against him, while Trump is getting ready to lay out his re-election strategy for the next year.
He’s just taken a major step towards presenting his campaign agenda to the American people, and it’s one that neither Nancy Pelosi nor Chuck Schumer ever saw coming.
Breitbart reports, “President Donald Trump will soon give a speech on his draft immigration reform plan, GOP Senators told reporters on Tuesday.”
This speech will likely mark the formal beginning of Trump’s re-election campaign getting underway, and it’s not hard to see why.
Immigration remains one of the most hotly contested issues in America right now, and President Trump’s push to build a wall along the US border with Mexico has been met with fierce resistance among obstructionist Democrats in Congress.
But as he tries to rally his base for 2020, Trump knows that immigration will remain one of the key issues that will get him re-elected.
And outlining his plan for immigration reform is a good way to draw a stark contrast with the lawless open borders mentality of most of the Democratic presidential field.
“Jared Kushner, Trump’s senior counselor, told a Capitol Hill meeting of GOP Senators on Tuesday that Trump would give a speech on immigration,” adds Breitbart. “The proposal reportedly drops earlier considered methods to reduce future immigration, and it also seeks to shift the inflow of immigrants away from lower-skill blue-collar jobs towards college-grade white collar jobs.”
Trump now has to sell this plan to the rest of the country, and explain why it’s a good idea.
And that’s exactly what this speech will seek to do.
“Wages are rising across the nation because Trump’s ‘Hire American’ policy is forcing CEOs and investors to hire millions of Americans who were sidelined by President Barack Obama’s high-immigration, low-growth economy. The revived competition for American employees is also ending the nation’s long freeze on wages and has delivered a roughly four percent raise to Trump’s base in 2018,” states Breitbart.
This news is a great first step, but in order to drive the point home before November 2020, Trump believes this speech could help to finalize his support among those who backed him earlier in his fight for greater border security.
If he pulls it off, his re-election bid will be given a huge boost while Democrats remain divided by the primary cycle.
