O'Reilly: Trump's "Contract With The American Voter" Should Have Been Widely Reported


BILL O'REILLY: On Saturday at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, Mr. Trump delivered a speech that promised a contract between him and the American voter.

So let's take a look at it.

The Republican says he will push for term limits on all congressional members.

He will freeze hiring at the federal level.

He will crack down on lobbying.

And he will renegotiate trade deals that he feels are harming America.

So far, nothing too dramatic

But then Mr. Trump upped the ante.

He says he will stop funding sanctuary cities.

He says he will remove two million undocumented immigrants - people he feels are dangerous - and cancel visas from countries that won't take them back.

He repeated that he will suspend immigration from terror prone regions like the Middle East.

In addition, Trump promises middle class families with two children a 35% tax cut.

He says he will spend one trillion dollars on infrastructure over the next 10 years.

He promises to repeal and replace Obamacare.

He says he will build the border wall.

Also, Trump says he will support Kate's Law -- mandatory five-year prison sentences for those who illegally reenter the USA with a felony conviction on their sheet.

Now, most of these promises appeal to Republicans and are abhorrent to Democrats.

So Trump is trying to solidify his base, which has slipped over the past few weeks, while also trying to attract independent voters who are fed up with lax policies for illegal immigration and national security.

The question becomes, did anyone actually hear Trump's Gettysburg speech?

Again, it was given on a Saturday when most Americans are not watching TV and the anti-Trump news media gave it scant attention.

What the media did trumpet was Trump's threat to sue some women who are accusing him of improper conduct.

That got a lot of attention.

Talking Points believes that the election of 2016 has not served voters well.

There has been far too much hysteria, hatred and stupid, partisan ramblings.

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have opposite views of how this country should be run.

Anybody voting on November 8th should know exactly what those views are.

Trump's contract should have been widely reported.
