The Civil War location, a senior campaign aide told reporters on a Friday night conference call, has great significance: ‘Gettysburg was the moment when the war turned.’ And he aims to enter the campaign’s final two weeks by making ‘a closing pitch to voters.’
The Republican nominee’s campaign said he will unveil a list of at least 10 major policy proposals, in teleprompter-driven remarks designed to reinforce his image as a can-do executive with laser-focused goals.
Democrat Hillary Clinton, the aide snarked, can’t articulate her policy goals because her donors haven’t yet told her what to think. ‘Secretary Clinton has no core,’ the aide charged, quoting a Democratic aide in a hacked email recently released by WikiLeaks.
‘Her policies are determined by the checks that are given to her, and nothing else. And of course no one actually disagrees with that. Everyone understands that she’s a special-interest-driven candidate.’
The aide described Saturday’s event, added to the calendar on Friday afternoon, as ‘our chance to lay out a positive vision for the country, from Mr. Trump, about what he’s going to do in his first 100 days in office, and how he’s going to go about doing it.’ source
