Trump White House rolls out plan for Indian Country


October 22, 2020

ST. PAUL — With the general election less than two weeks away, President Donald Trump's White House has released its own policy plan for Indian Country, outlining priorities to improve outcomes in health, safety, education and more for Native Americans.

Released on Tuesday, Oct. 20, the three-page plan lists its core principles as respecting tribal sovereignty, promoting public safety, improving tribal economies and infrastructure, honoring Native heritage, and improving health and education for Native Americans. On a Tuesday afternoon call with reporters, White House officials said the plan attempts to make good on promises between the federal government and tribes that have been broken over the years.

The White House's plan comes about two weeks after presidential challenger and former-Vice President Joe Biden's campaign released its own 15-page policy plan for tribal nations.
