Donald Trump, “I will restore Law & Order, Hillary is ‘Off the Map'”
The legacy of Hillary Clinton, is “Death, Destruction, Terrorism and Weakness.”
Thursday night Donald Trump vowed to “restore Law & Order” and make America safe from domestic crime and terrorism from outside its borders, as he accepted the Republican nomination for President.
“America is a nation of believers, dreamers, and strivers that is being led by a group of censors, critics, and cynics,” Donald Trump said in his address.
“We cannot afford to be so politically correct anymore,” he said. “So if you want to hear the corporate spin, the carefully crafted lies and the media myths, the Democrats are holding their (the Democrats) convention next week. Go there.
“History is watching us now,” he said. “We don’t have much time. But history is watching. It’s waiting to see if we will rise to the occasion and if we will show the whole world that America is still free, independent and strong.”
He thanked evangelicals for their support in winning the nomination, saying, “The support they’ve given me, and I’m not sure I totally deserve it, has been so amazing and was such a big reason for me being here tonight.”
Donald Trump touched on the rising crime rate in big cities and the threat of terrorism from Islamic terrorists.
“We will be a country of generosity and warmth. But we will also be a country of law and order,” he declared.
“America is far less safe and the world is far less stable than when Obama made the decision to put Hillary Clinton in charge of America’s foreign policy,” Donald Trump said of the former Secretary of State.
“I am certain it is a decision he truly regrets,” Mr. Trump said of Barack Hussein Obama’s appointment of Hillary Clinton. “Her bad instincts and her bad judgment, something pointed out by Bernie Sanders are what caused the disasters unfolding today.
“In 2009, pre-Hillary, ISIS was not even on the map. Libya was cooperating. Egypt was peaceful. Iraq was seeing a really big, big reduction in violence. Iran was being choked by sanctions. Syria was under control,” he said. “After four years of Hillary Clinton, what do we have? ISIS has spread across the region, and the entire world. Libya is in ruins, and our ambassador and his staff were left helpless to die at the hands of savage killers. Egypt was turned over to the radical Muslim Brotherhood, forcing the military to retake control. Iraq is in chaos. Iran is on the path to nuclear weapons. Syria is engulfed in a civil war, and a refugee crisis that now threatens the West.”
The legacy of Hillary Clinton he said, is “death, destruction, terrorism and weakness.”
Donald Trump said he plan puts Americanism, not Globalism, ast.
And he vowed to bring in supporters of democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, who was defeated by Clinton in the Democratic primaries over what both Sanders — and Trump — have called a “rigged system.”
“Millions of Democrats will join our movement because we are going to fix the system so it works for all Americans,” Donald Trump said.
“I am the law and order candidate,” he said. “The irresponsible rhetoric of our president, who has used the pulpit of the presidency to divide us by race and color, has made America a more dangerous environment for everyone.
The system, has failed minorities in inner cities with declining employment opportunities and rising crime.
When I am President, I will work to ensure that all of our kids are treated equally, and protected equally.”
“People who work hard but no longer have a voice,” he said. “I am your voice!”
“We are going to defeat the barbarians of ISIS, and we’re going to defeat them fast,” he said.
He repeated his vows to build a border Wall and suspend immigration from countries that have been compromised by terrorism.
“Anyone who endorses violence, hatred or oppression is not welcome in our country and never will be,” he said.
Immigration, he added, has caused lower wages and higher unemployment for citizens, especially African Americans and Latinos.
But the crowd of delegates loved the speech, chanting, “Build the Wall! Build the Wall!”
“On January 21st of 2017, the day after I take the oath of office, Americans will finally wake up in a country where the laws of the United States are enforced,” he said.
Donald Trump vowed to clean up corruption in the Veterans Affairs Department (VA). He said he wants to change a law to allow religious groups to express political opinions without losing their tax-exempt status, thus declaring the Johnson Act of 1954 null and void.
He also promised school choice, help with student loans, rebuilding the military and the repeal and replacement of Barack Obamacare. “And we will fix TSA at the airports, which is a total disaster,” he said.
“We can accomplish these great things, and so much else, all we need to do is start believing in ourselves and in our country again. It is time to show the whole world that America is back bigger, and better and stronger than ever before,” he said.
The delegates chanted “USA! USA!” and “We want Trump!”
An estimated 32.2-M people tuned in on 10 broadcast and cable networks Thursday night to watch Donald Trump accept the GOP nomination for President, Nielsen said.
That compared with 30.3-M who watched Mitt Romney 4 years ago.
US TV networks boosted coverage of the Republican convention in Cleveland this year after Mr. Trump drew huge audiences during the Y 2016 Presidential debates.
Fox News Channel, owned by Twenty-First Century Fox (NASDAQ:FOX), led all networks with 9.4-M viewers from 10:oo p to 11:45p EDT when Donald Trump spoke following an introduction by his daughter, Ivanka.
Comcast Corp’s (NASDAQ:CMCSA) NBC topped broadcast networks with 4.6-M viewers.
The Nielsen figures do not include viewing on digital platforms that also carried Mr. Trump’s speech live, and that likely accounts for the fact that this GOP convention did not beat the 2008 Convention viewer numbers that boasted Gov. Sarah Palin (AL) on Senator John McCain’s (AZ) ticket
Donald Trump has changed the Republican Party, he has made it the Party of The People. And The People are flocking to the GOP to Make America Great Again.
