Donald Trump: TOP 5 campaign promises

Donald Trump: TOP 5 campaign promises

Well-known for his provocative rhetoric Donald Trump became an official candidate for Republicans this week. Among many pre-elections promises, we chose TOP 5, which are the most controversial, even for Mr. Trump.

To “make America great again” in the terms of Trump means follow:


1. “Build a wall,” let Mexico pay for it

Trump intended “to build a great, great wall on our southern border” with the comments “have Mexico pay for that wall.” Such an expression made Mexican government respond to Trump. The President said if Trump really needs border wall, let he pays it from his own pocket. Even Trump;s supporters doubt in the reality of such a plan.

2. Temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States

The shooting in San Bernardino made Trump call Americans for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.” In December 2015, following the shooting day, Trump commented his expression regarding the ban, but the scholars arose the question on violating the constitution.

Nevertheless, Trump in May confirmed his intention of the ban, being added that it’ll be the priority for his first 100 days in office.

3. Bring manufacturing (jobs) back

Trans-Pacific Partnership is the thing totally unacceptable fo Trump, he promised to revive the manufacturing inside the U.S., as well as to bring back jobs for Americans. “I will use every lawful presidential power to remedy trade disputes, including the application of tariffs,” said Donald Trump in his speech on June 28.

4. Impose tariffs on goods made in China and Mexico

Another promise from the Donald Trump — about imposing the tariffs–collide many experts’ opinion. According to Trump “it would lead to a trade war and cost hundreds and thousands of jobs,” but he is not going to set it apart. Make America great again — is an aim, so Trump will go on in tariff sector too. He’s not afraid of exiting the World Trade Organization as well.

5. Fresh start in the negotiation or withdrawing from the North American Free Trade Agreement and Trans-Pacific Partnership

Two powerful organizations like NAFTA and TPP are the most unacceptable for Trump as future U.S. leader. The billionaire assures Americans that these structures will further raise the unemployment rate in the country. An expert Alan Wolff noted that “Countries like Mexico and Canada would have a list of things they’d want from the United States. These are balanced, hard-to-negotiate agreements.”
