Running for Republican presidential primary
Donald Trump is the 45th President of the United States. He was a businessman and TV show host before running for president in 2016. His campaign focused on lowering taxes, repealing and replacing Obamacare, protecting borders, and strengthening the U.S. military and law enforcement. As president, Trump signed the First Step Act in 2019, which shortens federal mandatory minimum sentences for nonviolent drug offenses. At the same time, Trump has detained thousands of immigrants in inhumane and illegal conditions, issued travel bans against vulnerable populations, repealed laws protecting trans people, and refused to denounce white supremacist violence across the country.
