(FOX NEWS) Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Saturday will use historic Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, as the setting to lay out his priorities for the first 100 days of a Trump presidency.
With Election Day now just 16 days away and Trump trailing Democrat rival Hillary Clinton in essential every poll, the GOP nominee is working to assure voters that he is as capable and knowledgeable about policy as he is about rough-and-tumble electoral politics.
“Trump will use the historic setting of Gettysburg where the country was saved,” a senior campaign source told Fox News. “He will lay out a concise program that he will commit to execute from the first day in office.”
Gettysburg is where Republican President Abraham Lincoln delivered his famous Gettysburg Address in November 1863 in an attempt to unify Americans amid the Civil War.
Clinton has had the clear advantage over Trump since Day One of the 2016 White House race, considering she is a former first lady, New York senator and secretary of state.
Trump on Saturday is not expected to announce any new or major policy changes and will instead try to make a closing argument for him and his 16-month campaign platform, which includes tax reform, border security, rebuilding the U.S. military and cutting federal regulations.
