US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Saturday put forward proposals for his first 100 days in office if elected President, calling his plan “a contract” between him and US voters. Speaking at a rally in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, the New York billionaire real estate developer pledged to clean house in Washington, D.C. with a “new government of, by and for the people”, and accused his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton of running against “change” and against “all of the American people”, Xinhua news agency reported.

“Our campaign represents the kind of change that only arrives once in a lifetime,” said the candidate famous for his bellicose style.

However, Trump did not put forward any new proposals in his 40-minute speech. Rather, he packaged his past plans into a number of legislative measures.

According to his 100-day plan, a Trump administration would curb illegal immigration, and impose Congressional term limits.

On the economy, Trump vowed to create over 25 million jobs in one decade, renegotiate US international trade deals and cancel billions in payments to the United Nations’ climate change programmes to use the money to invest domestically.

“On November 8, Americans will be voting on this 100-day plan to restore prosperity to our country, secure our communities and honesty to our government,” said Trump.
