President Donald J. Trump to Headline the America First Agenda Summit
July 14, 2022
In his first visit to Washington, D.C. since leaving office, former President Donald J. Trump will deliver the closing address during the America First Policy Institute’s (AFPI) two-day America First Agenda Summit. The 45th President’s remarks will be delivered on July 26, 2022.
“It wasn’t that long ago that America was flourishing. Paychecks were growing. Poverty was shrinking. The price of gas was down. The stock market was up. And there were no new wars. What a difference 16 months makes,” said Brooke Rollins, President and CEO of AFPI and former Director of the White House Domestic Policy Council under President Trump. “The America First Policy Institute is excited to welcome President Donald Trump back to Washington, D.C. Our team will introduce a policy agenda that will get our country back on the right track. These policies worked before, and they will work again. America’s future is America First!”
Some of the featured topics during the America First Agenda Summit will include lowering energy and gasoline prices, combating historic inflation, giving parents more control of their children’s education, fighting crime in our cities, and securing the border.
