On October 22nd 2016, Donald J Trump, candidate for the US Presidency gave a speech on at Gettysburg, PA outlining what he intends to do in the first 100 days of an eventual presidency. (site release/ pdf form). It was the site of turning point battle in the American Civil War( July 1–3, 1863,) and a speech titled the Gettysburg Address given by former president Abraham Lincoln ( November 19, 1863).
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal…
Candidate Trump’s “100-Day Plan To Make America Great Again – For Everyone” has been received and broken down by many people and outlets.Here is a short video “RIGHT ANGLE : TRUMP’s GTTYSBURG ADDRESS” discussing some of it followed by some related comments.
I paused at about 11:34 in the video to make the following comment:
The argument that Trump is just saying this to get votes. The level of pessimism it shows. Yes he isn’t learning this could be part of the plan. Is it not possible that through the years of thinking of running, and with the large number of people advising him that it was calculated that this would not be a winning strategy to say any of these things earlier? Things in the 100 day plan may ostensibly be part of the republican platform but have they been acting on it, or just acting that it is?
A lot of the things people say “oh i wish he’d come out and say x” or “how exactly does he plan on doing that” are confusing to me. When he does say a certain thing they claim it is not enough or may mean something else. In the demands for explaining what he would do, they are often discussing things that can be negotiated, in which exposing your strategy would be unwise.
When Coaches and athletes give their basic answers to reporters before a game “we’ll try our best o take advantage of their weakness in their defensive front,” it may be boring but do you expect them to lay out which players they will target in specific situations?
