As President Donald Trump enters his fourth presidential year, many citizens are wondering what he will accomplish this year. Will bipartisanship finally take precedence over partisan power plays? Will his “Economy First” initiatives bring the nation further job growth? Or will the 2020 presidential election take precedence over any other issue? Whatever the future may hold, here is what we can expect from the president in 2020.
On the domestic front, the president is likely to focus on several key issues, such as economic growth, infrastructure investments, and immigration reform. The president has been vocal about his desire to reach a bi-partisan agreement on an infrastructure package and has promised to include a plan to modernize America’s roads and bridges in his budget proposal for 2020. He has also indicated that he would like to pursue immigration reform and has expressed agreement with Speaker Pelosi’s “four pillars” package that would provide a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who have been living and working in the United States for an extended period of time.
We can also expect the president to focus on foreign policy matters, with a particular emphasis on managing the ongoing conflict between the United States and Iran. The president has been vocal about the need for a peaceful resolution to the stand-off between the two nations, and will likely rely on a combination of diplomacy, sanctions, and the threat of military force to help bring about a deal. With a reduced presence of American forces in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria, the president will be relying on diplomacy to bring a positive outcome to the region.
On the economic front, the president’s “Economy First” initiatives are likely to remain a central focus for the 2020 presidential year. He has already proposed broad tax cuts and regulatory reforms, and in the coming year, he is likely to push for additional tax reform, reforms to existing corporate regulations, and further spending cuts. The president is also expected to continue to rally for further expansion of fossil fuels and other energy sources at home and abroad.
As the president enters into his fourth presidential year, it is clear that 2020 will be an important year for the United States. With economic, domestic, and foreign policy issues to tackle, we can expect the president to remain focused on his “Economy First” agenda, as well as his desire to seek a bi-partisan solution for many of the nation’s issues. With a reduced presence in the Middle East, the president will be relying on diplomacy to resolve many of the international issues he will face, and at home, American citizens can expect to see continued economic growth and reforms to existing taxation and regulations. With the 2020 presidential election fast approaching, we can be sure that the president’s agenda will take precedence over any other issue throughout the upcoming year.
