Donald Trump tonight accepted the GOP nomination and laid out his vision and goals as President.
“We will lead our country back to safety, prosperity, and peace.”
“Beginning January 20, 2017, safety will be restored.” Government’s first responsibility is to protect its citizens. “We cannot afford to be so politically correct anymore.” Decades of progress made in reducing crime have been rolled back by this administration.
Trump said, the “legacy of Hillary Clinton is Death, Destruction, and Weakness. The legacy of Hillary Clinton does not have to be the legacy of America.”
He said Hillary Clinton’s greatest accomplishment was avoiding prosecution for her crimes.
“I will be your voice.”
“I have no patience for injustice, no tolerance for government incompetence.”
Trump spoke about the police being executed on our streets and vowed to restore law and order.
“We are going to defeat the barbarians of ISIS and defeat them fast.”
“We must abandon the policies of nation building and regime change.”
“We must stamp out Islamic terrorism….this includes working with our greatest ally in the [Middle East] – Israel.”
Trump said he would ban immigration from nations known to be associated with terrorism (the current phraseology that refers to the temporary ban on Muslim immigration).
“Anyone who endorses violence, hatred, and oppression is not welcome in our country and never, ever will be.”
He vowed to bring jobs back and to never sign bad trade deals. Trade deals would be executed with other countries individually. There would be no more massive multi-nation trade agreements. Current deals would be re-negotiated.
Trump’s tax reform would lower and simplify taxes for everyone.
Excessive regulation will be ended and restrictions will be lifted on the production of energy. He said it would produce $20 trillion over the next 40 years. “Our steel workers and coal miners are going back to work again,” he declared.
New wealth generated could fund roads, railroads, airports, and other infrastructure projects.
ObamaCare will be repealed and replaced. “You will be able to choose your own doctor again.”
Trump said we would rebuild our military and take care of our veterans.
We will appoint justices to the Supreme Court who will uphold the law and Constitution. The replacement of our beloved Scalia will be one who is similar.
#CrookedHillary wants to abolish the Second Amendment. I will preserve it.
Trump thanked Evangelicals for their support and said he likely would not be the nominee if it weren’t for them. He said he would work to repeal the Johnson amendment that revokes the non-profit status of churches who speak about politics.
“My sole vision now is to work for our country and to work for YOU.”
“I am asking for your support – to be your champion. My pledge: I’m with you – The American people.”
“I am with you.”
“I will fight for you.”
“I will win for you.”
“We will make America strong again; we will make America safe again. We will make America Great Again!”
