Donald Trump on Saturday used historic Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, as the setting to make a closing argument for his Republican presidential campaign, telling Americans that Washington and Wall Street are “rigged” against them and that he is the candidate to bring “the change that has to come.”
“I am not a politician,” Trump told the crowd. “But when I saw the trouble our country was in, I felt I had to act.”
The speech was billed as an opportunity for Trump to lay out his priorities for the first 100 days of a Trump presidency. However, much of the early part focused on attacks against Democrat rival Hillary Clinton and Wall Street.
Trump said that if elected his administration would try to undo an emerging deal in which AT&T will buy Time Warner, which would create a major media conglomerate.
With Election Day now just 16 days away and Trump trailing Clinton in essentially every poll, the GOP nominee is working to assure voters that he is as capable and knowledgeable about policy as he is about rough-and-tumble electoral politics.
