Donald Trump Domestic Policy

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s bombastic stance on immigration reform has his supporters excited while his opposition views his pledge to build a wall on the US-Mexico border as idle chatter to gain publicity. Most think that Trump’s pledge is just to build a wall, but it involves many other aspects of immigration reform such as; tripling the number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers, finning and deporting people who over stay their visas, making e-verify nation wide program, passing legislation to force employers to hire US citizens, and ending birth-right citizenship. Some of his objectives are feasible and then others are completely ludicrous, for example the border would benefit from employing more ICE …show more content…
His supporters love his ideas, but his views do not represent the entire Republican Party. Since trump is more of a Tea Party candidate, his plan is more conservative than half the people he would represent as the GOP nominee. Recently political action committees (PACs), interest groups and lobbyist have begun to see Trump as a threat to the party as a whole. PACs have, either begun to fund against him and support other candidates, or resorted to running negative campaign ads about him. This is the cool thing about Donald trump: unlike any other candidate, PACs do not fund him and he dose not have worry about Interest groups since he funds his own campaign.

It would be too easy for liberals to take advantage of class warfare. The Republican Party, by the media and liberals, has been branded with a stigma of being rich white old men that only want to make the rich richer and do not care about the needs of the middle class. Boasting such a braggadocios policy will just further that stereotype and widen the gap between minority voters and the GOP. Also, if Trump were to win the presidency, it is not guaranteed that he will be able to get any of his policy implemented. For example, if the democrats were to gain the majority in the house or senate, I would find it hard to imagine that someone with the rhetoric of Donald Trump would attempt to be bipartisan. Meaning the legislation would be killed in whichever house the Democrats have majority in. The best way to make America great again is not to build a wall on the southern border, but to elect a president that will reach across the isle and get things accomplished in
