Donald Trump said Tuesday evening that he will he will ask his top military officials to formulate a plan for defeating ISIS in 30 days.
Tomorrow, Trump is expected to unveil a plan to end the military sequester — across the board budget cuts — during a speech in Philadelphia.
In a briefing with the campaign, an aide previewed Trump’s address to the Union League, also adding that Trump will begin a substantial increase in military spending, as the candidate has advocated before.
“We are going to convey my top generals and give them a simple instruction,” Trump told the crowd in Greenville, NC. “They will have 30 days to submit to the oval office. A plan for soundly and quickly defeating ISIS. We have no choice.”
Trump’s address tomorrow will largely focus on military spending, presenting a contrast between what the campaign calls the “adventurism” of Democratic rival Hilary Clinton, and Trump’s “clear-eyed” pursuit of the nation’s national interest.
Trump also laid out other plans for his first days in office, a rare display of specificity for the candidate.
“The change will begin my first day in office. Number one we are going to eliminate every single unconstitutional order and restore the rule of law to our land,” he said. “Then we are going to begin implementing plans for construction of a wall along our southern border. In other words, we will build the wall.”
