With 17 days left before the election, Donald Trump was set to give a "closing argument to voters" near the site of President Lincoln's most famous address at Gettysburg, CNBC reports. Instead, CNN states Trump spent the first 15 minutes of his speech railing against the corrupt media, rigged elections, Hillary Clinton, and every woman who has accused him of sexual assault. And that was after he promised to "heal the divisions" in America. “Every woman lied," Fox News quotes Trump as saying about his nearly dozen accusers. "All of these liars will be sued after the election is over.” He also said Clinton is "running against all of the American people."

Trump eventually turned to his plans for his first 100 days in office, listing six major steps he'll take once elected—in addition to suing his accusers, presumably—that he called a "contract between myself and the American voter." Those plans include congressional term limits and more restrictions on government officials becoming lobbyists, the Washington Post reports. Trump said he would immediately deport immigrants in prison for violent crimes and cancel visas for countries that won't take them back. He said his administration wouldn't approve of the AT&T/Time Warner merger announced today. He would also implement a hiring freeze on all federal employees outside public health, safety, and the military. According to CNN, there were few policies or details laid out Saturday that Trump hadn't already discussed elsewhere. (More Donald Trump stories.)
