Donald Trump is reportedly teaming up with Newt Gingrich on a new ‘MAGA doctrine’ for the Republican Party, using the famed “Contract with America” as a framework.
The work is yet another signal that Trump is prepared to drag the Republican Party toward a more America-centric platform with an eye on the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential election.
Politico is reporting that the former President “has begun crafting a policy agenda outlining a MAGA doctrine for the party,” adding that “his template is the 1994 ‘Contract with America.’”
A source tells Politico that Trump has sat down for a meeting with former House Speaker Gingrich, his former chief of staff Mark Meadows, and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) to begin drawing up the new contract.
They note that “it is likely to take an ‘America-First’ policy approach on everything from trade to immigration” with the source describing it as “a policy priority for 2022 and beyond.”
