What is "Project 2025"?
     It's the project of a Trump-obedient organization, described in a 922-page document (titled Mandate for Leadership) detailing what Trump minions intend to do to the Federal government if Trump is reelected and takes office in January 2025. (The document is here. It's very large, so give it time to download.) Articles analyizing those consequences are linked here:

     A new President already can replace about 4,000 political appointees at the top of the Federal government with his/her choices (the Cabinet, heads of agencies, etc.) to direct the government according to the new President's priorities. (The Federal government employs about 2.95 million people nationwide and in U.S. territories, not counting military personnel.)
     But Project 2025 instead would replace an additional 54,000 currently civil service employees with people pledged not to the Constitution but loyal solely to Donald Trump. They are expected to direct the entire Federal government according to whatever is emitted from the fevered mind of Trump — which escapes from his mouth, publicly and unexpectedly, at times that even his minions probably can't anticipate.
     (The Federal civic service is non-partisan, with its employees expected to have the necessary expertise to carry out the laws passed by Congress, within the responsibilities of their department or agency.)

Statement on Trump Threatening Our Allies (Again)

The following is a statement from Biden-Harris 2024 senior spokesperson Kevin Munoz in response to Donald Trump saying (again) on Fox News he would not defend our NATO allies:

"Extorting our allies, empowering Putin, and encouraging war is now a staple of Donald Trump's campaign stump. While Trump threatens to walk away from our NATO allies from the safety of a Fox News studio, the people of Ukraine fight for their own freedom and right to exist with bravery and purpose Trump could never understand — because he only cares about what's good for Donald Trump. That's not who the American people are – over 70% of whom stand against Trump's plan to let Putin 'do whatever the hell he wants.' Trump is a weak leader – someone who doesn't understand the power of democracy here at home or across the globe. That’s why he'll lose again to Joe Biden this November."
