Speaking at the site of Abraham Lincoln's most famous speech, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump promised to cancel all funding to sanctuary cities within the first hundred days of his administration.

Gettysburg PA: Speaking at the site of Abraham Lincoln's most famous speech, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump promised to cancel all funding to sanctuary cities within the first hundred days of his administration.

Sanctuary cities such as San Francisco refuse to turn arrested police suspects over to federal authorities when their immigration papers are not valid. In other words they will not participate in the federal deportation of illegal aliens.

'First 100 days' agenda speech formalized his mainstay political pledges with promises of legislation and executive orders

Called it a 'Contract with the American Voter,' modeling it after the 1994 Republican 'Contract with America'

Trump touted 'the kind of change that only arrives once in a lifetime' and made his final substantive pitch to frame the campaign's last two weeks

Trump told an audience of about 300 invited guests that he will 'drain the swamp' in Washington. He

Borrowed a line from Abraham Lincoln's 1863 speech, saying he would replace D.C. elites 'with a new government of, by and for the people.'

A Trump aide said the Civil War battlefield site is appropriate because 'Gettysburg was the moment when the war turned'. Hillary Clinton is up by about six points in the most national polls of the presidential race.

The candidate briefly visited the site of the famed Civil War battle after his speech.

The Washington post reports that A surrogate for Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump told a group of urban school superintendents on Friday that Trump would seek to do away with "corrupted, incompetent" public school systems in America's cities, replacing them with charter schools and vouchers for private schools.

Such an approach would "encourage competition in the marketplace and eventually dismantle the corrupted, incompetent urban school districts that we have in America today," said Carl Paladino, Trump's New York State co-chairman, drawing audible boos from an audience composed largely of people who run the school districts Paladino criticized.

Trump proposed constitutional amendment limiting congressmen and senators to two terms in office. He said that for every new federal regulation passed by Congress, two should be eliminated. He promised a five-year ban on working for lobbyists after leaving government.
