Donald Trump today told the National Guard Association he is running to be President of all Americans. “Our campaign is about giving voice to the voiceless. It’s about representing the forgotten men and women of this country,” he said. “I’m here to represent everyone, but especially those who are struggling against injustice and unfairness. I am running so that the powerful can no longer beat up on the powerless. I’m running to take on the special interests, the big donors, and the corrupt political insiders. I am running to be your voice.”
Clinton on the other hand, “revealed herself to be a person who looks down on the proud citizens of our country as subjects for her to rule over,” he said. “She spoke with contempt for the people who thanklessly follow the rules, pay their taxes, and scratch out a living for their families.”
“Her comments displayed the same sense of arrogance and entitlement that led her to violate federal law as Secretary of State, hide and delete her emails, put classified information in the reach of our enemies, lie to Congress, and sell government favors and access through her Foundation,” Trump said. “The disdain that Hillary Clinton expressed towards millions of decent Americans disqualifies her from public service.”
To the National Guard, Trump pledged to “to give you the resources, the equipment, and the support you need and deserve. You will have a true and loyal friend in the White House.” He promised to end the defense sequester, rebuild the military, “abandon the policy of reckless regime change,” and ” provide our National Guard with the best, modern state-of-the-art equipment in the world.”
He said the National Guard would “have a direct line to the Oval Office.”
Trump today, also picked up the endorsement of 14 Medal of Honor recipients from World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and Afghanistan.
