As Salon reports, Donald Trump has released Agenda 47, a plan that includes ending birthright citizenship, further criminalizing transgender people and the LGBTQI community more broadly, replacing academic freedom with "patriot education," implementing a national stop and frisk law, pardoning the January 6 insurrectionists, putting homeless people in camps or other designated areas under threat of arrest, and executing drug dealers. Why isn't this getting more attention?
