  5. Andrew Whitaker Andrew Whitaker on President Trump's America Every 4 years, we as a nation evaluate our leaders. Starting in 2017, we witnessed a leader deprived of knowledge, completely void of integrity, and enthralled with prideful ignorance. I want to establish a frame of reference that distinguishes how leadership will be different under President Whitaker than President Donald Trump. First off, I want to address the unAmerican promise President Trump made as a candidate and during his tenure in office. He incited his entire support base to clamor for his political opponents to be locked up. The classic chant “lock her up” rang in the ears of every American. From those who cheered it to those who heard the chant and were appalled, our nation’s dignity plunged into an abyss. We are a nation that values diversity, freedom, and perspectives that are not necessarily shared by ourselves. I will never intervene with the justice department's work or abuse my power as the President of United States to target any of my political opponents in such a disgraceful way. Autocrats wish their opponents would be silent. It is the best way to remain in control. The Presidency is intended to be challenged and questioned in order to ensure that the President is upholding his duty to the Constitution and the country. Next, President Trump has abandoned America's role as the leader of the world. He foolishly withdrew from the Paris climate agreement in which nearly 200 countries in December of 2015 signed in order to curb greenhouse gas emissions and contain global warming to 2C. The world is safer, stronger, and more prosperous when America leads by example and leads in the front and when we do not neglect our role as a leader. We can lead a cleaner world if we choose. The past four years, we have chosen not to lead. One more example of a foolish decision on the world’s stage was President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran Nuclear Deal. This is a promise that he kept but one that was not replaced with a successful alternative. Where is the new Iran nuclear deal negotiated by President Trump or his people? Instead, we now witness an Iran that has no controls over their nuclear development process. This is failed leadership on the global stage. I will not fail you like he did. Another area on the global stage where President Trump has failed America has been in his embrace of foreign dictators who he rubs shoulders with while belittling, offending, and disparaging our allies. America must show strength and accountability when facing oppressive, autocratic leaders and support and collaborate with our allies. I will never turn our backs on our allies and will not give dictators the dignity or attention President Trump has so easily given. I have outlined an immigration plan that would be much more effective and doable then the failed immigration policies of President Donald Trump. First of all, President Trump promised that Mexico would pay for the border wall. I'm not sure if any of you have been to the border, or have talked to Mexico recently, by I am not seeing them writing a check. Additionally, President Trump has been ruthless towards refugees, tear gassing children, and separating families. America is a land of hope, peace, and opportunity. America is a place where with hard work and a good attitude, anyone's dreams can come true and not a place where people’s dreams turn into nightmares by the horror of a family separation or by being tear gassed. President Trump has failed his campaign promise in his handling with immigration. My immigration plan will be one that punishes those who commit crimes or are on the verge of committing crimes while naturalizing innocent people and refugees seeking asylum who simply want to make a better life for themselves and their families. President Trump promised the American people that he would repeal and replace Obama care or the Affordable Care Act. Not only has he failed to follow through on that promise, he has also failed to find a suitable replacement or any improvements to the health care system in this country. I believe that Obama care should be improved upon and not removed, but the lack of any actual plans to improve health care by President Trump is astonishingly disappointing. In July of 2016, presidential candidate, Donald Trump, promised the LGBT community that he would “fight for you.” Can anyone name one thing that President Donald Trump or the Republican Party has done for the LGBT community in the past 4 years other than oppress them? Instead, President Trump has prohibited LGBT members from serving in the military. He also attempted to exclude LGBT federal workers from workplace protections and eliminating crucial census questions regarding sexual orientation. His vice president, Mike Pence, believes that conversion camps are appropriate. Are these the actions of a man who is fighting for the LGBT community? Perhaps, we need a change in the ideology of the person who resides in the White House. When Republicans promise you that they will fight for you and if they are like President Donald Trump, I can guarantee you that they are lying to you. Another area where President Donald Trump promised to deliver and has failed the American people was his promise to keep jobs in America. We appreciate the low unemployment rate, but we do not accept the foolish tariffs and loose business practices that lead to businesses like GM from closing their plants in Lordstown, Ohio and Detroit-Hamtramck, Michigan, and potentially more locations who are costing American people jobs, requiring outsourcing, or employing a cheaper labor force in a foreign country. This is not what a thriving future that works for the American middle-class and working-class people looks like. If President Donald Trump is not running for reelection, why am I saying all of this now? This is because the Republican party have embraced the thinking of President Trump. It is the same thinking that the Republican Party possesses and prides itself in upholding. President Donald Trump is the standard bearer for the Republican Party. Although they may differ from issue to issue, we realize that much of who President Donald Trump is and what he believes is shared in the values of the Republican Party today. We need a stronger leader who can do better than the past four years of social disgrace, foreign policy blunders, LGBT betrayal, and the potential for a weaker economy due to foolish trade practices and loose business policies by our leaders. I understand foreign policy. I understand discipline, honor, and integrity. If I'm elected your president, we will have a much better four years. View full PR

    Andrew Whitaker - Immigration

    Andrew Whitaker Andrew Whitaker on Immigration One of the most highly contested issues in the 2016 and 2018 has been immigration. It will likely be no different here in 2020. As President, I will introduce comprehensive immigration reform. We will introduce comprehensive immigration reform with a pathway to full and equal citizenship within my first 100 days in office. It will treat every person with dignity, fix the family visa backlog, uphold the rule of law, protect our borders and national security, and bring millions of hardworking people into the formal economy. We shall end the three- and 10-year bars. The three- and 10-year bars force families—especially those whose members have different citizenship or immigration statuses—into a heartbreaking dilemma: remain in the shadows, or pursue a green card by leaving the country and loved ones behind. We will fight for DACA and DAPA. The estimated 5 million people eligible for DAPA—including DREAMers and parents of Americans and lawful residents—should be protected. It is imperative that we do everything possible under the law to protect families. If Congress keeps failing to act on comprehensive immigration reform, I will enact a simple system for those with sympathetic cases—such as parents of DREAMers, those with a history of service and contribution to their communities, or those who experience extreme labor violations—to make their case and be eligible for deferred action. As a nation of laws, we will enforce those immigration laws humanely. Immigration enforcement must be humane, targeted, and effective. we will focus resources on detaining and deporting those individuals who pose a violent threat to public safety, and ensure refugees who seek asylum in the U.S. have a fair chance to tell their stories. Continuing on the topic of family and humane laws, we will end family detention and close private immigration detention centers. We will end family detention for parents and children who arrive at our border in desperate situations and close private immigrant detention centers. Those who seek asylum will not be gassed or treated as invaders but with accordance with the Geneva convention on how to properly respond to refugees. I believe that people deserve to be treated with dignity. It does not matter where someone is born, but all people should have the opportunity to take care of themselves and their family. My administration will expand access to affordable health care to all families. We should let families—regardless of immigration status—buy into the Affordable Care Act exchanges. Families who want to purchase health insurance should be able to do so. The goal of immigration is to promote naturalization. We will work to expand fee waivers to alleviate naturalization costs, increase access to language programs to encourage English proficiency, and increase outreach and education to help more people navigate the process. Finally, we will support immigrant integration. We will create a national Office of Immigrant Affairs, support affordable integration services through $15 million in new grant funding for community navigators and similar organizations, and significantly increase federal resources for adult English language education and citizenship education.

  12. Andrew Whitaker Andrew Whitaker on Racial Justice As President, I will work to address racial injustice in this country. We need to start working together and start leveling the playing field. We will reform our broken criminal justice system by reforming sentencing laws and policies, ending racial profiling by law enforcement, strengthening the bonds of trust between communities and police, and more. We will protect the right to vote by fighting to repair the Voting Rights Act and implementing universal, automatic voter registration so that every American will be registered to vote when they turn 18, unless they choose to opt out. My administration will protect immigrants’ rights and keep families together by fighting for comprehensive immigration reform, including a full and equal pathway to citizenship and an end to family detention and private immigrant detention centers. I am a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment. I believe that everyone should be able to carry a gun who obeys the law but we should wisely consider solutions to end the epidemic of gun violence in our communities. Gun violence is the leading cause of death for young African American men—more than the next nine leading causes combined. We must do more to crack down on abuses of guns so that illegal guns and deprive our children of their futures. Law abiding gun owners should feel safe that their rights shall not be infringed, but we will work to prevent the continued occurrences of violent incidences. We will fight against environmental injustice. Clean air and clean water are basic human rights. But too many children in low-income housing are exposed to lead. African American children are twice as likely to suffer from asthma as white children. Half of our nation’s Latino population lives in areas where the air quality does not meet the EPA’s health standards—and climate change will put vulnerable populations at even greater risk. As president, I will work to reduce air pollution, invest in the removal of toxins like lead, develop greener and more resilient infrastructure, tackle energy poverty, and boost efforts to clean up highly polluted toxic sites. Next is to close the education achievement gap by making sure every child has a world-class education from birth through college. we will double America’s investment in Early Head Start, ensure that every 4-year-old in America has access to high-quality preschool, drive student achievement in K-12 schools, make college affordable, and relieve the crushing burden of student debt. Another key component is to revitalize the economy in communities that have been left out and left behind through a “Breaking Every Barrier Agenda” that includes $125 billion in targeted investments to create good-paying jobs, rebuild crumbling infrastructure, and connect housing to opportunity. Lastly, we will fight to ensure equal treatment for citizens in Puerto Rico. I am committed to making sure Puerto Ricans have a voice and are treated equally. I believe that Puerto Ricans must be treated equally by Medicare, Medicaid, and other programs that benefit families. I will also work with the people of Puerto Rico and with advocates from all sides to answer the fundamental question of their political status. View full PR

  14. Andrew Whitaker Andrew Whitaker on bailing out student loan debt I have witnessed the heavy burdens that our young people carry with immense student loan debt. This debt is crippling and ruins the future and buying power of our country. That is why I am going to be the first candidate in this race to propose bailing out our students. It is not uncommon for our nation to bail out big businesses that were too big to fail in order to save jobs or to stabilize the economy. Within the past 4 years, President Trump gave a $1.5 trillion tax cut for the wealthiest Americans. *There is currently $1.4 trillion of outstanding student loan debt in the US, held by about 44 million people. Imagine all of those 44,000,000 Americans being able to use their income to purchase goods and services in our communities. Our economy would witness a huge jolt in consumer spending and an uptick in business revenue due to the available income of formerly in-debt people having to pay off student loans. I believe it is about time we stop bailing out just poorly run businesses and start bailing out the American people! We can see that it is very easy to come up with $1.5 trillion simply by just removing the tax cut President Trump implemented and use that $1.5 trillion to bail out our students. This is an important and innovative step in this campaign. No other candidate on the Republican or Democratic side is proposing bailing out students. I am the first, and I'm proud to say that I will stand by our students and our Americans and remove the crippling debt that was incurred due to greedy institutions and a corrupt college educational program. Not only must we address the current debt students incurred, but we must also address ways to avoid students from falling into further debt. I will be releasing a plan for that shortly. I wanted to make the announcement that my campaign is going to put the working class and middle class first. The top way we are going to do that is by freeing them of their student loan debt and wiping their slate clean. We are the richest nation in the world, yet we have so many people struggling due to crippling student loan debt. Let’s make this happen and bail out the people!
