What's Trump's 2020 policy platform?

Asking for a friend.
Continue erasing Obama. Build wall. Then, 90% of HIS time, golf and parades.

Does it make any difference? He is going to "win" anyway.Remember the EC..
He is going to lose that too:
Polls: Joe Biden leads Trump in several key swing states
You have to blame fake POLLS. Only way to win now.

They didn't update or change the 2016 platform at the convention. It is, literally, meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

It's rather petty to carry on about a supposed lack of a platform given that Republican priorities have been set for at least fifty years now.

Also, they literally have a website dedicated to the "Platform".

https://www.gop.com/platform/
All they have is attacking Democrats
is weak. All I've got anymore is attacking Republicans --in the political campaigning realm, which is the context of this discussion-- (-1 Democrats).

The platform's preamble is cute. For example:
We believe the Constitution was written not as a flexible document, but as our enduring covenant.
What about the 27 amendments? Without constitutional changes slavery would still be OK and women would not have the vote.
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

We'd all be a lot better off if Republicans focused more on what they can demonstrate, than on what they believe. But when asked to defend their precious beliefs they act persecuted, like the norm for everyone was to be told what to believe, and to believe it...

...where'd they pick up a nasty habit like that, I wonder?

Policy platforms of two main parties:

Republicans: more and harder capitalism.
Democrats: more and better capitalism.

So long as the 1% dont have to pay more taxes and corruption can continue. That's for both parties.

His donation site is short and sweet
STAND WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP!
Democrats have made it clear that they are the party of high taxes, high crime, and RADICAL SOCIALISM.

It’s up to YOU to send a message that America will NEVER be a socialist country. President Trump needs you on his team to ensure victory and help us Keep America Great.
somewhere he released text someone wrote up:
Building on the incredible achievements of President Donald J. Trump’s first term in office, the President’s re-election campaign today released a set of core priorities for a second term under the banner of 'Fighting for You!' President Trump’s boundless optimism and certainty in America’s greatness is reflected in his second-term goals and stands in stark contrast to the gloomy vision of America projected by Joe Biden and Democrats.

President Trump will further illuminate these plans during his acceptance speech Thursday at the Republican National Convention. Over the coming weeks, the President will be sharing additional details about his plans through policy-focused speeches on the campaign trail.

President Trump: Fighting for You!

A Big Chunk Of People Of Color And White People With Degrees Are Behind Trump
The overarching story of recent American elections is that 1) voters of color, who have long been Democratic-leaning, are a growing share of the electorate; 2) white voters with college degrees are increasingly shifting to the Democrats; and 3) white voters without degrees are aligning more with the GOP. But those trends, because they get so much focus, can warp our understanding of the electorate as it exists right now.
