Trump: "Americanism, Not Globalism, Will Be Our Credo”
The New American July 24, 2016
“Friends, delegates and fellow Americans: I humbly and gratefully accept your nomination for the presidency of the United States.” Thus Donald J. Trump greeted the delegates of the Republican National Convention — and his worldwide television audience — Thursday night, at the finale of the four-day political marathon in Cleveland, Ohio. His address, reportedly the longest convention acceptance speech in four decades (for a Republican or Democratic candidate), did not aim at presenting a softer, more “nuanced,” and “presidential” persona, as many analysts had predicted and/or recommended. The message of “The Donald” did not waiver from the core issues of his “Make America Great Again” campaign theme: out-of-control illegal immigration, destructive trade deals, a calamitous foreign policy, an imploding economy, historic unemployment, skyrocketing violent crime, an escalating terrorist threat, and rampant political corruption.
All of these are the result, Trump averred, of a “rigged system,” a dysfunctional and broken system. And, he said: “Nobody knows the system better than me, which is why I alone can fix it.”
Trump opened his speech on a positive note, pointing out that his campaign has brought a flood of both new and old voters into the electoral process. “Who would have believed,” he asked, “that when we started this journey on June 16th of last year we — and I say ‘we’ because we are a team — would have received almost 14 million votes, the most in the history of the Republican Party, and that the Republican Party would get 60 percent more votes than it received four years ago?”
“The Democrats, on the other hand, received almost 20 percent fewer votes than they got four years ago,” Trump noted, and he pledged: “Together, we will lead our party back to the White House, and we will lead our country back to safety, prosperity, and peace. We will be a country of generosity and warmth. But we will also be a country of law and order.” Read the entire article
