For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. … The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.
We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate from the face of the Earth.
January 20th, 2017 will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.
I mean, that’s quite serious rhetoric.
Classic ‘fall from grace’ imagery
America will start winning again,
For many decades, we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry; subsidized the armies of other countries, while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military.
The US military is depleted? What world does Donald Trump live on?
…and I will never ever let you down.
Did Donald Trump just rick roll us?
Strong, worrying isolationist tones
Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs will be made to benefit American workers and American families.
it’s going to be only America first, America first.
An isolationist attitude is not going to help solve global problems. I think freetrade + paying for carbon is the answer.
We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example. We will shine for everyone to follow.
I actually quite like this.
