Trump-O-MeterTracking Trump's Campaign Promises
"We will build an Air Force of at least 1,200 fighter aircraft, which the Heritage Foundation again has shown to be needed to execute current missions."
"We will build a Navy of 350 surface ships and submarines as recommended by the bipartisan National Defense Panel."
"As president, I will call for an international conference focused on this goal. We will work side-by-side with our friends in the Middle East, including our greatest ally, Israel."
"That means reversing two of the worst legacies of the Clinton years...First, the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA. Second, China's entry into the World Trade Organization."
"I think NATO's great. But it's got to be modernized. And countries that we're protecting have to pay what they're supposed to be paying."
“We can provide six weeks of paid maternity leave to any mother with a newborn child whose employer does not provide the benefit.”
“Real change begins with immediately repealing and replacing the disaster known as Obamacare."
"I am totally in favor of vaccines. But I want smaller doses over a longer period of time" to avoid possible links to Autism.
“The insurance companies are getting rich off health care and health insurance and everything having to do with health. We’re going to end that. We’re going to take out the artificial boundaries, the artificial lines. We’re going to get a plan where people compete, free enterprise.”
"Allow individuals to fully deduct health insurance premium payments from their tax returns under the current tax system."
"Allow individuals to use Health Savings Accounts (HSAs). Contributions into HSAs should be tax-free and should be allowed to accumulate."
"Require price transparency from all health care providers, especially doctors and health care organizations like clinics and hospitals."
"Our elected representatives in the House and Senate must ... block-grant Medicaid to the states. Nearly every state already offers benefits beyond what is required in the current Medicaid structure."
"Remove barriers to entry into free markets for drug providers that offer safe, reliable and cheaper products."
"We are going to make sure every veteran in America has the choice to seek care at the Veterans Administration or to seek private medical care paid for by our government."
"I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great great wall on our southern border and I’ll have Mexico pay for that wall."
“A Trump administration will stop illegal immigration, deport all criminal aliens, and save American lives.”
"We have at least 11 million people in this country that came in illegally. They will go out. They will come back — some will come back, the best, through a process. They have to come back legally. They have to come back through a process, and it may not be a very quick process, but I think that’s very fair, and very fine."
"We will end the sanctuary cities that have resulted in so many needless deaths. Cities that refuse to cooperate with federal authorities will not receive taxpayer dollars, and we will work with Congress to pass legislation to protect those jurisdictions that do assist federal authorities.”
“Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.”
