Time for a reset? Donald Trump plans a major policy speech in Gettysburg, Pa. Saturday, where he plans to set out what would happen during the first 100 days of a Trump administration, reports Reuters. Aides say the address in the historic town will mark the beginning of the campaign's "closing argument," the Hill reports. Campaign aides haven't revealed much about the content, but they say it will be a "very specific, detailed vision" for America's "economic and physical security," much like the 1994 "Vision for America" that helped the Republicans win back the House.

On Fox News Friday night, Trump was tight-lipped about speech details, telling Sean Hannity: "I really want to do it tomorrow. I can only say we're going to make America great again," CNN reports. The Guardian reports that in a speech earlier Friday, Trump said countries including the Philippines are turning away from America because the world hates President Obama. "The world hates us," he said. "You saw what happened with the Philippines after years and years and years; they’re now looking to Russia and China, because they don’t feel good about the weak America." (Salma Hayek says Trump was not happy when she refused to go out with him.)
