Donald J. Trump Humbly & Gratefully Accepts the Republican Nomination for Presidency of the United States (VIDEO)
Last night at the RNC in Cleveland, Ohio Donald J. Trump walked on to the stage to the music from the movie, ‘Air Force One.’ Trump then went on to humble and gratefully accept the Republican nomination for the presidency of the United States to the roar of the crowd.
Donald Trump had big shoes to fill as the Trump Children, Donald Jr., Eric, Tiffany and Ivanka wowed the crowds and did a fantastic job in introducing America to the real Donald Trump, as opposed to the one that the liberal MSM and Democrats want you to see. Donald Trump faced the biggest speech of his life and he did not disappoint. After accepting the presidential nomination Trump said, “We will be a country of generosity and warmth, but we will also be a country of law and order.” When the crowd chanted of Hillary Clinton, lock her up, Trump responded in kind with, “let’s defeat her in November.” Watch the VIDEO below and see a political outsider take on the establishment and the greatest establishment candidate ever, Hillary Clinton.
Donald Trump accepts GOP nomination, Part 1
Friends, delegates and fellow Americans: I humbly and gratefully accept your nomination for the presidency of the United States.
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.
Our Convention occurs at a moment of crisis for our nation. The attacks on our police, and the terrorism in our cities, threaten our very way of life. Any politician who does not grasp this danger is not fit to lead our country.
Americans watching this address tonight have seen the recent images of violence in our streets and the chaos in our communities. Many have witnessed this violence personally, some have even been its victims.
I have a message for all of you: the crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon come to an end. Beginning on January 20th 2017, safety will be restored.
The most basic duty of government is to defend the lives of its own citizens. Any government that fails to do so is a government unworthy to lead.
It is finally time for a straightforward assessment of the state of our nation.
I will present the facts plainly and honestly. We cannot afford to be so politically correct anymore.
So if you want to hear the corporate spin, the carefully-crafted lies, and the media myths the Democrats are holding their convention next week.
But here, at our convention, there will be no lies. We will honor the American people with the truth, and nothing else.
Decades of progress made in bringing down crime are now being reversed by this Administration’s rollback of criminal enforcement.
Homicides last year increased by 17% in America’s fifty largest cities. That’s the largest increase in 25 years. In our nation’s capital, killings have risen by 50 percent. They are up nearly 60% in nearby Baltimore.
In the President’s hometown of Chicago, more than 2,000 have been the victims of shootings this year alone. And more than 3,600 have been killed in the Chicago area since he took office.
The number of police officers killed in the line of duty has risen by almost 50% compared to this point last year. Nearly 180,000 illegal immigrants with criminal records, ordered deported from our country, are tonight roaming free to threaten peaceful citizens.
The number of new illegal immigrant families who have crossed the border so far this year already exceeds the entire total from 2015. They are being released by the tens of thousands into our communities with no regard for the impact on public safety or resources.
One such border-crosser was released and made his way to Nebraska. There, he ended the life of an innocent young girl named Sarah Root. She was 21 years-old, and was killed the day after graduating from college with a 4.0 Grade Point Average. Her killer was then released a second time, and he is now a fugitive from the law.
I’ve met Sarah’s beautiful family. But to this Administration, their amazing daughter was just one more American life that wasn’t worth protecting. One more child to sacrifice on the altar of open borders. What about our economy?
Again, I will tell you the plain facts that have been edited out of your nightly news and your morning newspaper: Nearly Four in 10 African-American children are living in poverty, while 58% of African American youth are not employed. 2 million more Latinos are in poverty today than when the President took his oath of office less than eight years ago. Another 14 million people have left the workforce entirely.
Household incomes are down more than $4,000 since the year 2000. Our manufacturing trade deficit has reached an all-time high – nearly $800 billion in a single year. The budget is no better.
President Obama has doubled our national debt to more than $19 trillion, and growing. Yet, what do we have to show for it? Our roads and bridges are falling apart, our airports are in Third World condition, and forty-three million Americans are on food stamps.
Ivanka Trump Addresses the 2016 RNC & Introduces Her Dad, GOP Presidential Nominee Donald J. Trump (VIDEO)
Ivanka Trump knocks it out of the park …
Last night Ivanka Trump introduced Donald J. Trump as the 2016 Republican presidential nominee to the music of the movie ‘Air Force One.’ But before that, Ivanka described her father, a man that is a fighter, a man that thinks big, a man that gets things done and an individual that is “color blind and gender neutral” and one that would fight for women’s issues.“ She did an amazing job. Maybe the greatest assets of Donald Trump is his children. One after the other have come out and introduced us to the real Donald Trump. Each one more impressive then the next. Last night it was Ivanka Trump’s chance to introduce her dad and she absolutely bailed it. WOW! Ivanka stated that real change is needed and her dad, Donald Trump, will fight for America like he has fought for his family. Donald Trump will fight to make America great again!
Real change, the kind we have not seen in decades is only going to come from outside the system. And it’s only going to come from a man who’s spent his entire life doing what others said could not be done. My father is a fighter. When the primaries got tough and they were tough, he did what any great leader does. He dug deeper, worked harder, got better and became stronger.
I have seen him fight for his family. I have seen him fight for his employees. I have seen him fight for his company. And now, I am seeing him fight for our country. It’s been the story of his life and more recently the spirit of his campaign. It’s also a prelude to reaching the goal that unites us all. When this party and better still this country knows what it is like to win again.
Full speech cab be read HERE.
Ivanka went on to champion her dad and how Donald Trump was ahead of the curve with women and how the Trump organization has more women execs than they do male and that “women are paid equally for the work that we do and when a woman becomes a mother, she is supported, not shut out.”
These sites are also incredible melting pots, gathering people from all walks of life and uniting them to work towards a single mission. There have always been men of all background and ethnicities on my father’s job sites. And long before it was common place, you also saw women.
My father values talent. He recognizes real knowledge and skill when he finds it. He is color blind and gender neutral. He hires the best person for the job, period.
Words and promises, no matter visionary they sound will only get you so far. In our business, you’re not a builder, unless you’ve got a building to show for it, or in my father’s case, city skylines. Most people strive their entire lives to achieve great success in a single industry.
This has long been the philosophy at the Trump Organization. At my father’s company, there are more female than male executives. Women are paid equally for the work that we do and when a woman becomes a mother, she is supported, not shut out.
Women represent 46 percent of the total U.S. labor force, and 40 percent of American households have female primary breadwinners. In 2014, women made 83 cents for every dollar made by a man. Single women without children earn 94 cents for each dollar earned by a man, whereas married mothers made only 77 cents. As researchers have noted, gender is no longer the factor creating the greatest wage discrepancy in this country, motherhood is.
As President, my father will change the labor laws that were put into place at a time when women were not a significant portion of the workforce. And he will focus on making quality childcare affordable and accessible for all.
Ivanka Trump, the polished, careful daughter of a shoot-from-the-hip presidential candidate, made a personal appeal to female voters who remain skeptical of a Trump presidency, describing her father “as a fighter” for the nation and women.
Remarkably, the nominee’s daughter told the party faithful at the Republican National Convention on Thursday that “I do not consider myself categorically Republican or Democrat.” Rather, the 34-year-old said that, like many millennials, “more than party affiliation, I vote based on what I believe is right for my family and my country.”
“My father values talent,” said Ivanka Trump, a vice president of the family Trump Organization. “He recognizes real knowledge and skill when he finds it. He is color-blind and gender-neutral. He hires the best person for the job, period.”
More from Donald Trump Jr: “We’re Still Americans, We’re Still One Country, and We’re Going to Get It All Back” (VIDEO)
And lets have some more from the man who amazed all last night at the RNC, Donald Trump Jr … Donald Trump Jr. wows em at RNC.
DONALD TRUMP JR.: Good evening. I’m Donald Trump Jr. Thank you. I’m the father of five young children, from two-year-old Chloe to Kai who just turned nine. I’m the husband to Vanessa, an amazing wife and mother, and the son of a great man. I’m an American, and tonight I want to talk to you about the country we live in; the country our children will grow up in. To my generation, this is the most important election of our lifetime, one that will determine the future of our country and, in turn, the future of the world.
For too long, our country has ignored its problems, punting them down the road for future generations to deal with. In business, I was trained by my father to make the tough investments and decisions today to ensure a better future for tomorrow. We’ve actually started to believe that solving our great problems is an impossible task, and that’s why we need to elect a man who has a track record of accomplishing the impossible.
For the first time, parents no longer think that their kids will be as well of as we were. We’ve lost the confidence in our leaders and the faith in our institutions. But remember one thing: we’re still Americans, we’re still one country, and we’re going to get it all back. We’re going to get it back better than ever before. I know we’ll get it back because I know my father…
The other party gave us public schools that far too often fail our students, especially those who have no options. Growing up my siblings and I, we were truly fortunate to have choices and options that others don’t have. We want all Americans to have those same opportunities. Our schools use to be an elevator to the middle class, now they’re stalled ton the ground floor.
They’re like Soviet department stores that are run for the benefits of the clerks and not the customers for the teachers and administrators and not the students. You know why other countries do better in K-through-12?
They let parents choose where to send their own children to school. That’s called competition. It’s called the free market. And it’s what the other party fears. They fear it because they’re more concerned about protecting the jobs of teachers than serving the students in desperate need of a good education. They tell us they’re the experts and they know what’s best. The other party gave us a regulatory state on steroids.
This morning Donald Trump officially announced Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his VP for the 2016 GOP Presidential ticket. Trump described Pence as ‘a man of honor, character and honesty’. Trump heaps praise on Mike Pence and his character and honesty in contrast with lying, crooked Hillary. We shall see if this pick helps bring the Republican party together. Probably not a bad choice by Trump with all things considered.
Billionaire Donald Trump praised his newly minted running mate Mike Pence as ‘a man of honor, character and honesty’ on Saturday, using their official coming-out party as a platform to contrast the Indiana governor with his November opponent Hillary Clinton.
‘Hillary Clinton is the embodiment of corruption. She’s a corrupt person,’ he said.
When Pence spoke nearly a half-hour later, saying he was ‘deeply humbled,’ he drew a standing ovation for a line he uttered Tuesday, during the pair’s only other joint public appearance: ‘Hillary Clinton must never become President of the United States of America.’
The 57-year-old Indianan lauded Trump, ‘this builder, this fighter, this patriotic American who has set aside a legendary career in business to build a stronger America.’
Of course NBC has to try and divide the ticket before the ink was dry on the GOP 2016 presidential logo. One would think its more of a bold move to choose some one with a different set of opinions rather than a “yes” man or woman. But when you are the MSM, you try and cause hate and division of the GOP at all cost.
Donald Trump’s newly-named running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, has shored up discrepancies over his contrasting stances with Trump on several key policies, including past U.S. trade deals, the Muslim ban and the proposal to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.
“You know, you shut the door, you tell the boss exactly what you think,” Pence said on Fox News when asked by host Sean Hannity how he’d work through disagreements with Trump.
“But when the door opens, the job of the vice president is to stand right next to the president and implement the policy that he’s decided. And I’m prepared to do that.”
A recent Rasmussen poll has The Donald ahead of Hillary by 7 percentage points. However, over all the RCP rolling average of polling has Clinton +3.1%. The gap is definitely tightening between the two candidates. My opinion is that the real polling will come more into line when Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have their first presidential debate.
Just days before the Republican National Convention is expected to formally nominate him to run for president, Donald Trump has taken his largest lead yet over Hillary Clinton.
The latest Rasmussen Reports weekly White House Watch survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds Trump with 44% support to Clinton’s 37%. Thirteen percent (13%) favor some other candidate, and six percent (6%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
This is the third week in a row that Trump has held the lead, although last week he was ahead by a statistically insignificant 42% to 40%. This week’s findings represent Trump’s highest level of support in surveys since last October and show Clinton continuing to lose ground.
