The key points of the conservatives’ Project 2025

The “Project 2025” has become one of the main topics of conversation prior to the general elections on November 5; but what exactly is it about? Below, we’ll share what is known about it.

What is “Project 2025”?

The “Project 2025” is a manual of more than 900 pages for the next conservative presidential administration. Through this, several recommendations are presented for the transition that the change of administrations would entail.

What does “Project 2025” have to do with Donald Trump?

Since the project was prepared by The Heritage Foundation, an American conservative organization; Democrats have begun to associate it with Donald Trump. However, the former president has claimed that he is not aware of this “road map”, while his campaign seeks to completely distance itself from it due to to their extremism.

“I know nothing about Project 2025. I have no idea who is behind it. I disagree with some of the things they’re saying and some of the things they’re saying are absolutely ridiculous and abysmal. Anything they do, I wish them luck, but I have nothing to do with them,” Trump wrote through his social network, Truth Social.

Backing Trump’s statements, a spokesperson for the project revealed to Business Insider that the manual “does not speak on behalf of any candidate or campaign.” But What exactly is said in Project 2025 and why has it caused so much controversy?

Key points of Project 2025: This is the plan for a conservative government in the USA

Project 2025 is made up of four pillars: a policy blueprint to follow for the next conservative mandate, the creation of a database to consider the civil servants who could serve in the next administration, training for said officials under the concept of “Presidential Administration Academy” and a playbook of actions to undertake during the first 180 days of government.

So far, the policy road map is the one that has attracted the most attention, since many of the proposals presented border on rightwing extremism.

Among the key points of Project 2025 are the restoration of the family as the centerpiece of American life; defend at all costs the sovereignty and borders of the country and greater restrictions on abortion to defend “God-given individual rights.”

It is also proposes dismantling the administrative state by eliminating some federal agencies with the aim of expanding presidential power. The text also includes proposals to make cuts in environmental policies, in addition to eliminating “woke” propaganda and suppressing certain terms such as “sexual orientation”, “diversity, equity and inclusion ”, “gender equality”, “abortion” and “reproductive rights”.
