Donald Trump plans to set out a positive vision for his first 100 days as president, in what his campaign called a closing argument for voters that will come a day after he vowed to finish the race with “no regrets.”
Trump plans to describe his early goals during remarks Saturday in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, according to an aide, a dramatic turn from the Republican’s standard campaign speech that paints a bleak picture of the U.S. Trump will outline the 10 most important principles for the first 100 days, another aide said.
With less than three weeks until an election Trump has warned will be “rigged,” he’s spent recent days stoking doubts about whether he’ll accept the outcome of the vote if he loses.
At a private campaign event in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, on Friday evening, Trump said that if elected president he would look to build 350 new warships for the U.S. Navy, constructed at dry docks in Pennsylvania, New Hampshire and Virginia and built with “U.S. steel.”
Earlier in the day, the embattled Republican presidential nominee told a crowd in Fletcher, North Carolina, “I don’t want to think back: ‘If only I did one more rally, I would have won North Carolina by 500 votes instead of losing it by 200 votes,’ right?”
He also said, “We’re going to do this for another 19 days, right up until the actual vote of Nov. 8, and then I don’t know what kind of shape I’m in but I’ll be happy.”
said at the final general-election debate on Wednesday he would look at the outcome at the time and keep Americans “in suspense.” On Thursday, campaigning in Ohio, he
said he “would accept a clear election result but I would also reserve my right to contest or file a legal challenge in the case of a questionable result.”
Included in the purported Podesta e-mails — which her campaign won’t confirm or deny are authentic — are apparent
transcripts of Clinton’s private speeches to Goldman Sachs;
discussion about the classification of some of Clinton’s private e-mails and about handling the political damage of her private server; and evidence of Democratic Party
Al Smith Dinner
On Thursday night, at an annual charity dinner in New York City where presidential nominees traditionally give self-deprecating speeches, Trump’s biting remarks were
met with some laughs and — in an unusual turn for the event — some boos.
reference to one alleged Podesta e-mail released by WikiLeaks, Trump said Clinton was “pretending not to hate Catholics” at the dinner, which honors the late Alfred E. Smith, the first Catholic U.S. presidential nominee.
Trump also quipped that Clinton, who he has said should be jailed over her use of private e-mail as secretary of state, bumped into him and said, “Pardon me.”
Clinton told the crowd she wanted “to put you all in a basket of adorables,” referring to when she called half of Trump’s supporters a “basket of deplorables” and took political heat for the remark. She also told Trump, in an reference to their contentious debates, “Feel free to stand up and shout ‘wrong!’ while I’m talking.”
