GETTYSBURG, Pa. (WHP) - Donald Trump spoke Saturday about his contract with America. He outlined what he wants to do in the first 100 days of his presidency if he's elected.

Change, he said, will prove his slogan: "Make American great again."

"When I saw the trouble our country was in, I knew I couldn't stand by and watch any longer," Trump said.

An America that dreams again - that's what the Republican presidential nominee said he wants.

When asked how he would make America great again in his first 100 days, Trump said, "Well, it's going to be jobs, a secure and strong military. We have to, our military is so terribly depleted right now. At a time when almost more than at any time we need a strong military."

Trump laid out his plans to an invite-only crowd Saturday in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

He also explained plans he has for the women accusing him of sexual misconduct.

According to Trump, "Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over."

When it comes to policy, Trump is talking about securing the border and protecting Americans from what he calls "tremendous drugs" flowing into the country.

"No one can even believe what's happening, we're being poisoned by the drugs coming in on the southern border," he said.

And he said he'll go after the Affordable Care Act in his first 100 days.

"One of the big things we're doing is we're going to repeal and replace Obamacare. Obamacare is a disaster. Four more years of Obama and that means we’ll be fighting ISIS forever. That means high taxes forever. We’re going to have horrible healthcare forever," Trump said.

It's all about stopping what he calls the gridlock in Washington.

A challenge, but a task Trump said he can and will handle when he's elected.

"We say drain the swamp. It's a swamp and I understand the swamp. I was part of that whole thing. I fully understand it and that's why I think I'm in a better position to do it. I'm doing it because I love the country. I love our country," Trump said.

We've reached out to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's campaign repeatedly for a one-on-one interview. When we get that interview, we will bring it to you.
