Many people are curious to see how the 2024 election turns out with Trump running again, and even more, people want to know what his plans really are. Trump has named his new platform “Agenda47” and has a mix of old and new policies ready for 2024. One of the main new reforms to Trump’s agenda is his focus on education and a need for change in the education system. He wants to take teaching race and gender out of public schools. Many of those discussions are ones that should be held at home, not at school. His proposals counter his competitor Ron DeSantis in almost every way, showing he is going to do things differently this time. The former president has a clear vision and unfinished business he plans to tend to.
Trump has struggled to generate the kind of attention he received during his past campaigns, even as most polls show him to be the GOP’s presidential front-runner. Many people have already made their minds up about Trump. However, the proposals seek to plant a flag in culture war battles that rile up social conservatives or speak to education and crime-focused voters who are dismayed by the post-Covid landscape. Trump wants to crack down on law enforcement for minors, especially when it comes to gender. Trump also wants to crack down on punishment for doctors who provide gender-affirming care for minors. He also wants to push to institute universal baseline tariffs and phase out all imports of essential goods from China.
Many of his new reforms, and even some of his education platforms, fall under the purview of state and local governments. Many are shocked by Trump’s new agenda as it is quite different than his previous platforms; there is more of a focus on actual policy. He needs to offer voters a forward-looking vision that emphasizes what he plans to do and get them excited about his re-election if he wants to win.
