Trump’s Policies; More Than Just a Wall

Kofi Skingley

Trump’s policies have proved to be controversial and his most famous is building a wall along the Mexican border. However, his policies regarding healthcare and crime are often swamped by the more controversial ideas.



A large amount of Trump’s policies relating to healthcare are directly aimed at war veterans, especially the VA, which is a government run benefit system for war veterans in the USA. Such policies include Appoint a VA secretary with a sole purpose to serve veterans, ending fraud and abuse at the VA and firing “corrupt and incompetent” VA executives.

Trump claims that he will increase the funding for PTSD, traumatic brain injury and suicide prevention services which will have a high emphasis on veterans. As stated on he wants to “Ensure our veterans get the care they need wherever and whenever they need it.” Trump also wants to scrap Obamacare and replace it with the Health Savings Accounts.



Trump has 6 policies relating to crime, 3 relating to drugs and 3 over the right to bear arms, he aims to allow states to legalize marijuana if they chose to do so in an attempt to make drugs safer by taking them out of the hands of gangs and untrusted dealers. In an attempt to make this happen, Trump wants to bring back and expand on programs like Project Exile, which targeted felons caught carrying firearms. The consequences were harsher sentences, no option of bail, and no potential for early release.
