Trump has disavowed the manifesto, but his goals for civil service cuts, deportation and more show a shared vision

Donald Trump’s attempt to distance himself from Project 2025 after extreme comments from one of its leaders falls flat given the extensive Trump ties and similarities between the project’s policy ideas and the former president’s platform.

On Truth Social last week, Trump claimed to “know nothing about Project 2025” and have “no idea who is behind it”. The disavowal from Trump came after Kevin Roberts, the president of Heritage, said: “We are in the process of the second American revolution, which will remain bloodless, if the left allows it to be.”

Project 2025 is a Heritage Foundation effort to align the conservative movement behind policies that an incoming rightwing president should undertake. The far-reaching plan, which would upend the way the federal government operates, includes a lengthy manifesto and recruitment of potential staffers for a second Trump administration.

    Guys it’s fine he said he like, thinks it’s a separate thing and stuff. I’m sure the new god king powers will be fine as well, don’t forget that other guy was a bit slow in the debate!

    If someone threatens to shoot you, the appropriate response is neautralizing the threat by any means necessary.
