Your country deserves to be making products here again, the kind of products America was known for; strong, long lasting, well priced products. And your families deserve to be designing, producing, manufacturing, advertising for, marketing for, wholesaling, retailing and BUYING those American products. That will create jobs and create an economy working for YOU again, not only for those at the top. But, I will never insult those at the top. This is America and we’ve always honored success, never given an award to everybody so nobody’s feelings get hurt, never supported people who don’t even belong here legally, which undermines your confidence and can’t do anything but make you ask “What is going ON HERE?” This was the America where doing WELL was admired and it will be that again! The ridiculous notion of looking down on the rich and expecting them to carry our load is wrong and it’s dangerous. The rich hire, the rich buy; rich people, rich corporations, the producers in this country, are all thriving and we all can share in that success. They should thrive and so should YOU! We have to work hard and expect the best, not the worst for ourselves. But you need promise, you need true hope and a light at the tunnel that’s become dimmed these last few years.
We need a country again whose people don’t turn to drugs because they see no future. We need a country whose kids are encouraged to do well in school, not passed to higher grades just to make sure the taxes go to that school, not passed along though they can’t read. We need to close the Department of Education, among other departments, and leave it to the states, but with a curriculum which supports our country, supports our kids’ learning the Pledge (never being allowed to sit down during it), learning the National Anthem, learning all the tremendous goodness of America with honest discussion of her less stellar things like slavery only at age appropriate times. Making Americans proud to be American shouldn’t be on a political platform! It was what we did for all these years. Ask yourselves why so many don’t anymore. Ask yourselves why no other country teaches hate for itself!
Ask yourselves why our kids are killing other kids and ask yourselves why we blame the guns instead of the families who raised kids who can even conceive of killing another! We had a chance with our first Black president to hear him tell all kids, but particularly our at-risk Black kids who need guidance, that they can succeed, to stop the killings, to get a good education, to work hard, lay off drugs, that bringing babies into your dark, difficult world isn’t going to make anything better for that baby or anyone else. It never happened with Obama. We need a president who’s everybody’s leader and who’ll call the so-called “Black Leaders” down for discouraging instead of encouraging.
We are pro WOMAN! Most of my executives at the Trump Foundation are women, don’t believe what you hear from the media! We are also pro health care and we’ll fight to keep it affordable, going slowly to massage and tweak what’s worked and get rid of what has not worked, like Obama Care!
This country deserves to make its own energy. We have the ability to BRING OIL HOME and we can. The Left denounced our country for going into Iraq and taking the oil. We never did that, but why shouldn’t we have taken the oil from people we fought hard for, lost precious soldiers for, spent billions of dollars for? I’m going to change this attitude. Why doesn’t America deserve anything and all IT can get?
And if anybody doesn’t think weather’s changing, they’re dumb. Weather changes. But we need to go slowly and methodically and see what’s going on and what we can do, not destroy business in overreaching attempts at our cleaning up our mess while other countries continue to spew their junk into the air we breathe; there is no wall to stop those particulates in our air!
We need a president that the world will respect and, yes, FEAR. Fear isn’t a word we like to say anymore, but we’re fighting an enemy who operates solely on fear and we have to fight back with the same punch….or better, stronger, more long lasting, FINAL. We aren’t going to put up with foreign terrorists anymore. And WHY SHOULD WE? What kind of a leader sees Islamist radicals killing all over the world and decides we need more Muslims here? What is horrible about stopping ALL immigration until we get a handle on it? What is horrible about being as sure as we can be that the immigrants we are letting in want to come here to participate, not live off of us, or kill us!? How is it legal for cities to offer sanctuary against OUR OWN COUNTRY’S LAWS? Ask yourself that question. How does a country survive without paying attention to its laws and which party has ignored those laws in efforts to, supposedly, be KIND and OPEN and WELCOMING? When did it become unkind to tell people to OBEY OUR LAWS IF YOU WANT TO COME HERE, IF YOU WANT TO LIVE HERE?
We will build a wall. As some of you might not know, the construction of that wall was approved by Congress once and we’ll get it approved again. And, of course, as your Progressives would like you to believe, that supposedly means WE HATE IMMIGRANTS. MY WIFE is an immigrant, think I hate her? America was built with the blood and sweat of immigrants, we need immigrants, but we need immigrants who want to come here, learn our language, participate in our culture and provide for their own families. We need proud immigrants like those of older days, who came here thrilled to be AMERICANS, not to bring their culture here or, worse, bring those who want Americans dead and this country changed forever by Sharia Law, for example. That’s not going to work in America; NOT WHILE I’M IN CHARGE.
We need Supreme Court judges not from the Left and not from the Right, but those who interpret the Constitution with the strictest adherence to what it says, not what they want it to say. We need to honor the Supreme Court and assign people to it who will never besmirch that institution which only lately has become disrespected. That has to STOP.
There are many things this country needs but the absolutely most important thing is PRIDE IN AMERICA again. AGAIN! We have always loved our country! Stop allowing your schools to teach the next generations otherwise. Stop it, read what your kids are learning. Demand their teachers teach the truth, not political ideology from the leftwing hate-America first crowd. STOP IT. Stop anything that gets in the way of our pride in country.
People have said I disparage the military by saying IT IS A DISASTER. Those people who say this are either totally stupid or totally dishonest, or both; anybody who’s heard how I feel about our military knows that I’ve made it clear that the way we TREAT our military is a DISASTER, THE MILITARY is not! Support our military! Why should that be some new concept? This is America! Ask yourselves what people started the derision of not only our military but our law enforcement. Ask yourself why most of those at the head of law enforcement across this country now support ME, the CONSERVATIVE.
THE MEDIA IS THE NEXT THING: A Democratic country doesn’t survive with a one-sided media anymore than it does with a one-sided education system. We are to OPEN MINDS, EDUCATE, INFORM, NOT INDOCTRINATE, NOT only tell HALF the news, and NOT downright LIE. We need BOTH sides presented and both sides, most importantly, RESPECTED. Pay attention to the stories you hear…look into both sides.
PRIDE IN AMERICA is what Mike Pence and I will work on every single day of our administration, of both of our four year administrations, God willing. And, talking about God; ask yourself why Christianity and Judaism are suddenly the bad guys and Islam isn’t. Ask yourself who’s propagated that ridiculous and dangerous turn of events. “Merry Christmas!” used to be a happy thing to say, now we worry about who’s going to hear it? NOT ANYMORE.. This country was founded on Judeo Christian ethics and has thrived UNTIL we started to chip away at that amazing, bless-ed foundation that our forefathers gave us through the love and help of GOD. If others don’t like it, they don’t have to listen to it. Why is that a new concept?
God bless America……Be PROUD of this great country that has done so much for not only its people but people all over the world. Let them fear us once again; that’s a good thing. Fear, awe, respect, those are GOOD words, words to be proud of…and I will work HARD to make all of you PROUD to be an AMERICAN again.
(loud applause?…Yes? No?!)
