Former President Donald Trump, who announced his third bid for the presidency in November, has proposed the creation of up to ten "freedom cities" on federal land. In a four-minute video detailing his plan, Trump stated that his vision is to "create a new American future" in a country that has "lost its boldness."
Reigniting American Imagination
Trump stated that these "freedom cities" will be roughly the size of Washington, D.C.
and will be established on undeveloped federal land. He said, "We'll actually build new cities in our country again. These freedom cities will reopen the frontier, reignite American imagination, and give hundreds of thousands of young people and other people, all hardworking families, a new shot at home ownership and in fact, the American dream."
Flying Cars and the Future of Air Mobility
According to Trump, passengers could travel in flying cars in the future.
Work on the development of vertical takeoff and landing vehicles is already underway by major airlines, car manufacturers, and other companies. Trump expressed his desire to ensure that America, not China, leads this revolution in air mobility, saying, "I want to ensure that America, not China, leads this revolution in air mobility."
Is the Plan Feasible?
Chris Rupkey, Chief Economist at markets research firm FwdBonds, commented on Trump's proposed economic plan, saying, "Builders build and make dreams a reality, but this plan looks like a stretch because the country cannot afford to undertake massive new projects when the national debt is over $31 trillion." He added, "There are some interesting ideas here, but this is not the right time for bold plans that dream big.
There's no money left in Uncle Sam's till to pay for big dreams and daring projects." Trump's proposal to create "freedom cities" and his vision for the future of air mobility has sparked a debate about the feasibility of his plan.
While some may see it as a bold and daring project, others believe that the country's current financial situation may not allow for such ambitious plans.
