The Republican National Committee on Monday embraced former President Donald Trump’s 2024 Republican Party election platform to back his bid to return to the White House, placing a strong emphasis on the issues of border security and inflation that voters have said are top of mind while adapting its stance on abortion for the first time in four decades to recognize the reversal of Roe v. Wade.

“Only President Trump can restore our economy, restore our Southern Border, and restore America’s standing in the world,” RNC Chairman Michael Whatley and RNC Co-Chair Lara Trump said in a statement.

Trump and RNC Chairman Michael Whatley jointly announced the party’s platform committee had approved a 20-plank platform leading with promises to “seal the border and stop the migrant invasion,” “carry out the largest deportation operation in history,” and “end inflation and make America affordable again.”

“President Trump and Republicans will reverse the Democrats’ destructive Open Borders Policies that have allowed criminal gangs and Illegal Aliens from around the World to roam the United States without consequences,” the platform stated. “The Republican Party is committed to sending Illegal Aliens back home and removing those who have violated our Laws.”

It also includes vows that the GOP would complete the border wall, end federal funding for sanctuary cities, and prioritize “merit-based immigration.”

On the economy front, the platform furthers the campaign’s embrace of cryptocurrency, vowing to ” defend the right to mine Bitcoin, and ensure every American has the right to self-custody of their Digital Assets, and transact free from Government Surveillance and Control.” It further expressed opposition to the creation of a central bank digital currency.

The platform further called for making permanent the 2017 tax cuts and for cutting federal regulations.

The initial summary sent out by Trump offered top lines and did not include the detailed positions under each plank. It also made no mention of abortion, but sources with direct knowledge of the platform told Just the News that the complete document dropped the GOP’s long held plank pushing for a federal right to life law because the Supreme Court ruled in 2022 that abortion was a state’s right issue.

The RNC’s new platform, instead asserts that the 14th Amendment guarantees the right to life and entitles states to pass protections to that effect.

“We proudly stand for families and Life. We believe that the 14th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States guarantees that no person can be denied Life or Liberty without Due Process, and that the States are, therefore, free to pass Laws protecting those Rights,” the platform stated. “After 51 years, because of us, that power has been given to the States and to a vote of the People.”

“We will oppose Late Term Abortion, while supporting mothers and policies that advance Prenatal Care, access to Birth Control, and IVF (fertility treatments),” he went on.

Trump appointed three judges to the Supreme Court who voted to overturn the constitutional right to abortion set in the Roe v. Wade precedent. He has since called for leaving the matter to the states. During the CNN presidential debate, Trump expressed support for exceptions to abortion bans in the cases of rape, incest, and threats to the life of the mother.

“I believe the exceptions. I am a person that believes, and frankly, I think it’s important to believe in the exceptions,” he said at the time. “Some people, you have to follow your heart. Some people don’t believe in that, but I believe in the exceptions for rape, incest, and the life of the mother. I think it’s very important.”
