The GOP nominee's speech in Gettysburg, Penn., home of the turning point battle in the Civil War and the site of Abraham Lincoln's famed address, will serve as the beginning of the campaign's closing argument just 16 days before Election Day.
Campaign aides were tight-lipped about specific details for his 100-day plan, instead noting that it will be a "very specific, detailed vision" for "economic and physical security."
One aide compared it to the GOP's 1994 "Contract with America," the Republican plan spearheaded by Newt Gingrich that helped the party win back the House.

"Secretary Clinton has no core, as was outlined in the emails that have been made public. She doesn't have a governing vision for America because she has no vision. Her policy is determined by the checks given to her and nothing else," an aide said.
"Hillary Clinton, she can't even go there because she doesn't know what check she will get between now and when she would be hypothetically elected."
An aide added the speech will be a contrast to the Clinton campaign, which wants to "sit on their lead, wait out the clock."
The speech comes at a pivotal point for the Trump campaign, which continues to slip at the polls just more than two weeks before Election Day. He sits about 6 points behind Clinton in RealClearPolitics' average of recent national polls and behind her in most key swing states.
Trump's been dogged over the past few weeks by a continual drip of accusations that he groped women, which started rolling in after the release of a damning 2005 audio tape in which he talks about how he can do anything to women because he's a celebrity.
