Trump is making part of his 2024 plank Making America Beautiful Again, separating himself from the fake populists by focusing on an issue that ordinary Americans actually care about: being surrounded by beauty instead of shockingly ugly, modernist or brutalist buildings.
While the RINOs fake populism and go on about issues no normal person in America really cares about, namely getting America more involved than even in the war in the Ukraine, Trump is hammering on a point that everyone notices and conservative or right-wing-minded people do notice and care about: modern architecture is ugly and needs to be replaced with what is inspiring and beautiful.
Watch Trump discuss that idea here and describe how he’d use new cities and old architecture to make things beautiful and free again:

Trump, in that portion of his speech, called for building buildings in the classical style again to make America and her buildings beautiful again, said:
We need to start talking about greatness for our country, our objective will be quantum in the American standard of living, especially for young people. As I announced yesterday, we will hold a competition to build new Freedom Cities on the frontier to give countless Americans a new shot at homeownership and the American dream. Such a wonderful, beautiful thing.
I will challenge the governors of all 50 states, all 50 states to join me in a great beautification campaign. We will rename our schools and boulevards, not after communists but great American patriots.
We will get rid of bad and ugly buildings and return to the magnificent classical style of western civilization.
We will support baby booms and we will support bonuses for a new baby boom. How does that sound? That sounds pretty good! I want a baby boom. You men are so lucky out there. You are so lucky, men.
Our country will shine, thrive, and prosper like never before. All of this within our reach, but only if we has the courage to complete the job, gut the Deep State, reclaim our democracy and banish the tyrants and Marxists into political exile forever. They are bad for us, they want us to fail, they want our country to go down, they are sick people.
Change only happens if we plow fearlessly ahead and declare with one voice the era of woke and weaponized government is over. That is our task, that is our mission.
That speech was classic Trump. It’s funny, like when he jokes about guys having a good time when saying he wants more kids to be born. It’s about a real issue that no other Republican politicians have the courage or inclination to confront. And it shows an inspiring, beautiful vision. Rather than brooding like many on the far-right or being to timid to even think about the issue like many in the center, Trump has the vision and courage to face the issue head-on while also smiling and cracking jokes. That’s what makes him special, why the MAGA crowd has stayed loyal to him, and why he’s going to win the nomination in 2024.
