Donald Trump Pledges ‘America First’ Creed, says ‘You will Never be Ignored Again’ … And Power Back to the People!!!

TRUMP CHIDES WASHINGTON POLITICAL ESTABLISHMENT AND PLEDGES POWER BACK TO THE PEOPLE

President elect no more, now President of the United States Donald J. Trump. In his inauguration speech, Trump ripped the Washington, DC political establishment class and promised to return the power back to We the People. President Trump stated an ‘America first’ creed and ‘you will never be ignored again’. This is why Trump was elected. Let this be a warning to Republicans and Democrat politicians alike.

Donald J. Trump preached the populist and nationalist message that fueled his presidential campaign in his first remarks as the 45th president of the United States, pledging an “America first” creed.

“The forgotten men and women of this country will be forgotten no longer,” the businessman and former reality television star said in front of the U.S. Capitol on Friday.

As raindrops fell on the crowd gathered on the National Mall, Trump said he planned to “transfer power from Washington, D.C.” to the people, taking swipes at politicians, some of whom stood just over his shoulder. He told Americans that “you will never be ignored again,” repeating his campaign pledges to push companies to return jobs to the U.S. and to rebuild American infrastructure.

UPDATE I: Trump criticized those in Washington who he said had forgotten those who bore the cost of the actions of politicians.

“We are transferring power from Washington DC and giving it back to you, the people,” said Trump.

Morning Consult Survey: 72% of Americans Feel Hopeful About 2017

LOOKS LIKE A MAJORITY OF PEOPLE ARE HOPEFUL ABOUT 2017!!!

Yet another story the liberal MSM will not tell you about. According to a new Morning Consult survey,  72% of Americans say they feel hopeful about 2017. One would think that with all the negative media stories of Trump and the unwillingness of the LEFT to accept Trump as president that this number would be a lot lower. But maybe, just maybe the mood of the country is much like the 2016 presidential election … a change and move away from Obama and the Left to the message of hope and Making America Great Gain that won Donald Trump an electoral landslide.

2017 poll Hopeful

Nearly three-quarters of Americans, or 72 percent of those polled, say they are feeling hopeful about 2017, according to a new Morning Consult survey.

Sixty-one percent of respondents say they are feeling optimistic about the upcoming year, and 51 percent of people are feeling excited.

But half of the respondents say they are feeling anxious about the coming year, according to the poll.

Twenty-three percent reported feeling sad and 19 percent reported feeling angry going into the new year.

Less than half of respondents say they are feeling peaceful or relaxed about the coming year, and a quarter reported feeling indifferent.

Eighty-one percent of Americans say they are concerned about the nation’s political atmosphere, and 64 percent are worried about world affairs.

Still, 55 percent say they think 2017 will be a better year than 2016, with 59 percent saying they expect to do better financially in 2017.

Donald Trump First Stop on His ‘Thank You Tour’ to The Poeple for electing Him President in Cincinnati, OH

DONALD TRUMP THANKS THE PEOPLE

At a Thank You rally in Cincinnati Ohio yesterday, Donald Trump wowed the crowd and thanked the people for electing him president. Trump stated, “We made history and the real work begins, .. although we did have a lot of fun fighting Hillary”. That was met by chants from the crowd of “lock her up.” Trump also called for all people to come together and focus on what unites us not divides us.

 ”THANK YOU” Rally in Cincinnati, Ohio (12-1-2016)

The first stop in President-elect Donald Trump’s “thank you tour” quickly turned into a victory lap for the real estate magnate to revel in his surprising win and bash the naysayers that believed he had no shot at the White House.

Trump’s Thursday speech in Ohio largely mirrored the popular rallies that were a mainstay of his presidential campaign. The businessman boasted about his upset of Hillary Clinton, railed against the media, and chided politicians that counted him out or refused to back him.

“Our victory was so great, we have the House, we have the Senate, we have the presidency,” Trump said at U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati. “People are constantly telling me and telling you to reduce our expectations. Now is not the time to downsize our dreams.”

He set his eyes on the “dishonest” media and the conventional wisdom that a blue wall in states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin would buoy Clinton no matter what happened.

“How about when a major anchor who hosted a debate started crying when she realized that we won?” Trump asked the booing crowd, referring to ABC News’ Martha Raddatz, who appeared to tear up during election coverage as Trump’s victory became apparent.

“[The media] was saying for months there was no way that Donald Trump can break that blue wall. We didn’t break it, we shattered that sucker. Man, that poor wall is busted up.”

And he criticized news outlets for waiting too long to call states like Pennsylvania, even when it became clear he was set to win.

Trump also took a shot at Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who was a vocal opponent of the president-elect and never endorsed him, saying he didn’t get support from “the upper echelon of politician” in the state.

Trump’s off-the-cuff remarks may have taken his own team by surprise: He announced at the rally that he was in fact tapping retired Marine Gen. James Mattis for Defense Secretary. The news had broken hours before in reports from CNN and Military Times, but Trump spokesman Jason Miller tweeted that no decision had been made. Trump told the crowd to keep the announcement under wraps, as it wasn’t supposed to be made public until Monday.

Michigan Secretary of State Posted Results … Donald Trump Wins Michigan by 10,704 (Trump Wins Landslide Election 306 to 232 in Electoral College)

THE COUNTING IS FINALLY OVER IN MICHIGAN AND TRUMPS WINS AS EXPECTED ON ELECTION NIGHT … LANDSLIDE WIN FOR TRUMP 306 TO 232 …

Donald Trump has been declared the winner in Michigan. Even though the election took place Tuesday, November 8, 2016, the Michigan Secretary of State has finally posted results Wednesday, the day before a long extended Thanksgiving holiday, Republican Donald Trump has defeated Hillary Clinton 2,279,543  to 2,268,839 and captures the 16 electoral college votes. The addition of the 16 electoral college votes to the Trump ledger now provides The Donald with a landslide electoral college win over Clinton and a mandate. The Left is still complaining and refusing to come to grips with the will of the people vote and are referencing that they will challenge the vote totals in the battleground states of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, North Carolina. But wasn’t it Hillary Clinton and Democrats who railed on Trump following the 3rd presidential debate for not accepting the will of the people? Oh the hypocrisy.

Its a final, 2016 Presidential election: Trump 304- Clinton 232 (RCP)

President Barack Obama Speech on the President-Elect Donald Trump’s 2016 Victory (VIDEO) … “Because we are now all rooting for his success in uniting and leading the country”

NOT A BAD SPEECH BY OBAMA … GIVING CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE.

Watch Barack Obama’s video below, Obama actually provided the correct tone and message to America following the Donald Trump presidential election. Obama stated, we are all rooting for success and the peaceful transition of power is one of the hallmarks of our democracy in the United States of America. Honestly, it is too bad he did not have this tenor for the past 8 years and had taken his own advice. And ending his speech with God Bless America might have been a nice touch. However, the Obama speech below is a good one. Let’s hope he maintains there same beliefs after he is out of office toward president-elect Trump.

Transcript from WAPO:

Good afternoon, everybody. Yesterday, before votes were tallied, I shot a video that some of you may have seen in which I said to the American people, regardless of which side you were on in the election, regardless of whether your candidate won or lost, the sun would come up in the morning.

And that is one bit of prognosticating that actually came true. The sun is up. And I know everybody had a long night. I did as well. I had a chance to talk to President-elect Trump last night about 3:30 in the morning, I think it was, to congratulate him on winning the election and I had a chance to invite him to come to the White House tomorrow to talk about making sure that there is a successful transition between our presidencies.

Now, it is no secret that the president-elect and I have some pretty significant differences. But remember, eight years ago President Bush and I had some pretty significant differences. But President Bush’s team could not have been more professional or more gracious in making sure we had a smooth transition so that we could hit the ground running.

And one thing you realize quickly in this job is that the presidency and the vice presidency is bigger than any of us. So I have instructed my team to follow the example that President Bush’s team set eight years ago, and work as hard as we can to make sure that this is a successful transition for the president-elect.

Because we are now all rooting for his success in uniting and leading the country. The peaceful transition of power is one of the hallmarks of our democracy. And over the next few months, we are going to show that to the world.

[...]

Now, everybody is sad when their side loses an election, but the day after we have to remember that we’re actually all on one team. This is an intramural scrimmage. We’re not Democrats first. We’re not Republicans first. We are Americans first. We’re patriots first.

We all want what’s best for this country. That’s what I heard in Mr. Trump’s remarks last night. That’s what I heard when I spoke to him directly. And I was heartened by that. That’s what the country needs — a sense of unity, a sense of inclusion, a respect for our institutions, our way of life, rule of law, and respect for each other.

I hope that he maintains that spirit throughout this transition. And I certainly hope that’s how his presidency has a chance to begin.

[...]

So win or lose in this election, that was always our mission. That was our mission from day one. And everyone on my team should be extraordinarily proud of everything that they have done and so should all of the Americans that I’ve had a chance to meet all across this country who do the hard work of building on that progress every single day.

[...]

So this was a long and hard fought campaign. A lot of our fellow Americans are exalted today, a lot of Americans are less so, but that’s the nature of campaigns, that’s the nature of democracy. It is hard and sometimes contentious and noisy and it’s not always inspiring.

But to the young people who got into politics for the first time and may be disappointed by the results, I just want you to know, you have to stay encouraged. Don’t get cynical, don’t ever think you can’t make a difference. As Secretary Clinton said this morning, fighting for what is right is worth it. Sometimes you lose an argument, sometimes you lose an election.

You know, the path that this country has taken has never been a straight line. We zig and zag and sometimes we move in ways that some people think is forward and others think is moving back, and that’s OK. I’ve lost elections before. Joe hasn’t, but…

You know. So I’ve been sort of sure…

BIDEN: But (ph) you beat me badly.

OBAMA: That’s the way politics works sometimes. We try really hard to persuade people that we’re right and then people vote. And then if we lose, we learn from our mistakes, we do some reflection, we lick our wounds, we brush ourselves off, we get back in the arena, we go at it. We try even harder the next time.

The point though is is that we all go forward with a presumption of good faith in our fellow citizens, because that presumption of good faith is essential to a vibrant and functioning democracy. That’s how this country has moved forward for 240 years. It’s how we’ve pushed boundaries and promoted freedom around the world. That’s how we’ve expanded the rights of our founding to reach all of our citizens. It’s how we have come this far.

And that’s why I’m confident that this incredible journey that we’re on, as Americans, will go on. And I’m looking forward to doing everything that I can to make sure that the next president is successful in that.

I’ve said before, I think of this job as being a relay runner. You take the baton, you run your best race and hopefully by the time you hand it off, you’re a little further ahead, you’ve made a little progress. And I can say that we’ve done that and I want to make sure that hand-off is well executed because ultimately we’re all on the same team.

All right. Thank you very much, everybody.
