Election HQ Trump Details 7-Point Plan to 'Protect American Jobs'
At a rally in St. Augustine, Florida, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump laid out his plans for seven distinct actions he will undertake immediately if elected to protect American jobs.
"My only special interest is you, the American people," he said, "It's time to clean up our nation's capital."
Trump said he plans to
Renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement, NAFTA, which he called "the single greatest jobs theft in the history of the world".
Withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership for similarly stated reasons.
Direct his secretary of the treasury to label China a currency manipulator:
"I have a great relationship with China...but they know...that's how they do it," Trump said.
Direct his commerce secretary and the United States Trade Representative to "use every tool...to end foreign trade abuses that hurt the American worker."
Lift restrictions on the shale, natural gas and oil production:
"We will put our miners back to work," he said.
"Approve vital energy infrastructure projects like the Keystone Pipeline"
Cancel billions of dollars in payments to U.N. climate change programs; diverting the money to domestic infrastructure projects.
