Trump Makes Crystal Clear Announcement

Donald Trump clarified on Friday that he has nothing to do with Project 2025.

Once and Future President Donald Trump clarified on Friday that he has “nothing to do” with Project 2025. Conservative think-tank Heritage Foundation came up with the 900 page transition plan all on their own. While there may be some overlap with his own policy initiatives, that’s purely coincidental. Just because they’re both on the same side doesn’t mean they agree on everything. Trump made it crystal clear that there’s a lot of nonsense in the Heritage Foundation proposal that he definitely disagrees with.

Project 2025 isn’t Trump’s idea

Donald Trump took to his social media platform on Friday, July 5, to clarify where he stands regarding Project 2025. He understands how easy it is to imagine that he’d fully embrace their conservative transition plan but he doesn’t.

Sure, they came up with some great ideas, which he’ll carefully consider, but he’s not sold on the entire Heritage Foundation agenda.

Specifically, Trump posted on Truth Social that “I know nothing about Project 2025. I have no idea who is behind it.” The Heritage Foundation has their name on it but they got the material from a whole slew of contributors.

I disagree with some of the things they’re saying and some of the things they’re saying are absolutely ridiculous and abysmal. Anything they do, I wish them luck, but I have nothing to do with them.

The authors of the right-wing road map are obviously fellow travelers, which makes them allies. That doesn’t mean that Donald Trump is obligated to follow their advice. The foundation made that clear with a social media post of their own.

As we’ve been saying for more than two years now, Project 2025 does not speak for any candidate or campaign. We are a coalition of more than 110 conservative groups advocating policy & personnel recommendations for the next conservative president.

Conservative think-tank Heritage Foundation came up with the 900 page transition plan all on their own.

Five main topics

The 900-page 2025 Presidential Transition Project has liberals in a frenzy. The “governing agenda” described is so chock full of “conservative priorities and insight from scholars and policy experts” that it gives Democrats the screaming horrors.

The titles of the five sections alone are enough to send progressives in search of their safe space. “Taking the Reins of Government,” “The Common Defense,” “The General Welfare,” “The Economy” and “Independent Regulatory Agencies.

While Democrats aren’t sure which parts of it are the worst, they all agree that the plans for reshaping the powers of the executive branch sounds Orwellian to them. That’s karma for you.

The idea of “striking various small government agencies” makes them nervous but the Project 2025 idea of “rolling back funding for abortions and approval of the abortion pill mifepristone” is about to cause riots.

One of the proposals in the project which overlaps with Trump’s agenda has to deal with “reimplementing Schedule F.” Trump signed that executive order and Biden instantly reversed it. By reclassifying federal workers onto that schedule, it makes them easier to fire. All the ones taking up space solely to fill diversity quotas can be replaced with Trump loyalists.

Trump really didn’t have anything to do with any of it. The project was inspired by his deplorable fans. We the People were complaining loudly that “workers in the federal government were part of a ‘Deep State‘ working to undermine his agenda.” The foundation agreed and set about crafting a plan to deal with it. Maybe they didn’t quite nail it but they did come up with a starting point.
