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.
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.
ALL NEED TO WATCH THIS AND FIGURE OUT THIS ELECTION, IS THE UNITED STATES STILL A SOVEREIGN COUNTRY AND A NATION OF LAWS.
From Neil Cavuto comes the following video, Coast to Coast illegal alien asking President Barack Obama if she should fear voting, because immigration will come and get her and her family and deport them. The question to a sitting president of the United States is whether a “non-citizen” votes in an election whether they and their family will be rounded up and deported. Obama says no. WTF!!! Obama says because you vote, you are a citizen. WHAT?!? You vote because you are a citizen. Obama just basically said that illegals can vote and nothing will happen to you. Obama’s comments do not even border on criminal, they are criminal.
THIS IS UNREAL. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE COUNTRY I GREW UP IN?
- In the USA it’s called not guilty by reason of insanity
Flashback: Jesse Jackson Praised Donald Trump in 1998-1999 for Lifetime of Helping African American Community (VIDEO)
WHAT DEMOCRATS AND HILLARY CLINTON DON’T WANT YOU TO SEE AND KNOW ABOUT THE REAL DONALD TRUMP …
Isn’t it amazing when one runs for office how the political narrative changes from the liberal MSM and Democrats, especially when you are a Republican and your name is Donald Trump. Take a look at the video below where Jesse Jackson of the Rainbow-PUSH Coalition is praising Donald Trump back in 1999 for his help that he provided to the back community. In the video Trump praises the construction efforts of black and minority workers. But now that Trump is running for president he is suddenly some how a bigot and a racist. Its the same old, tired and pathetic attacks from the LEFT and the fear tactics they use.
So what are you going to believe America, especially those in the black community, a bias media and Democrat party that has done nothing for your vote for the past 50 years or Donald Trump, a man who has actually worked with and his a lifetime of helping the black American communities? If Donald Trump is so bad as the media would have you believe, why was the Reverend Jesse Jackson singing Trump’s praises? Give that a good thought when you cast a vote.
In both 1998 and 1999, Trump was an honored guest at the annual Wall Street Conference hosted by the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, Jackson’ DC-based “multi-racial, multi-issue, progressive, international membership organization fighting for social change.”
In 1998, Jackson introduced Trump ahead of his speech at the conference.
“We need your building skills, your gusto,” Jackson told the real estate mogul before stating Trump is a model for “people on Wall Street to represent diversity.”
You can watch Trump’s 1998 speech over at C-SPAN’s website.

If you have not already seen the video, please make sure to watch Donald Trump’s foreign policy speech below. Don’t let the media tell you what to think, watch what he said and listen, really listen. How can it possibly be considered extreme to want to protect America from radical Islamic terrorism? But that is what the liberal MSM would have you believe. It is Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton through their inaction and head in the sand mentality that has brought you ISIS. After all, it was Obama who when asked about ISIS, called them the JV. Who is not qualified to the president and does not take their job serious? Sadly the in the tank for Hillary Clinton media will trash his speech when nothing about it is extreme. We are in serious times where people are looking to end the West’s way of life and culture, it is not a president’s duty to protect the United States and the US Constitution?
Trump stated we need extreme vetting for those that would look to immigrate to the United States from countries that harbor terrorism. Wow, what a novel concept MSM. I would dare say any vetting would be required as I doubt very much that the Obama administration does little to none. A note to Democrats, liberals, the MSM and Hillary Clinton, we have no obligation to allow people into the US, especially those that would not look to assimilate to the American culture. What made America great is that we were a Melting Pot, not a country made up of illegals and immigrants who wanted no part of melting into America society.
We will defeat Radical Islamic Terrorism, just as we have defeated every threat we have faced in every age before.
But we will not defeat it with closed eyes, or silenced voices.
Anyone who cannot name our enemy, is not fit to lead this country. Anyone who cannot condemn the hatred, oppression and violence of Radical Islam lacks the moral clarity to serve as our President.
The rise of ISIS is the direct result of policy decisions made by President Obama and Secretary Clinton.
As the Middle East was cast into total turmoil as Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, the Clinton’s made millions.
With one episode of bad judgment after another, Hillary Clinton’s policies launched ISIS onto the world.
Yet, as she threw the Middle East into violent turmoil, things turned out well for her. The Clintons made almost $60 million in gross income while she was Secretary of State.
Incident after incident proves again and again: Hillary Clinton lacks the judgement, the temperament and the moral character to lead this nation. Importantly, she also lacks the mental and physical stamina to take on ISIS, and all the many adversaries we face – not only in terrorism, but in trade and every other challenge we must confront to turn this country around.
Thank you. It is great to be with you this afternoon.
Today we begin a conversation about how to Make America Safe Again.
In the 20th Century, the United States defeated Fascism, Nazism, and Communism.
Now, a different threat challenges our world: Radical Islamic Terrorism.
This summer, there has been an ISIS attack launched outside the war zones of the Middle East every 84 hours.
Here, in America, we have seen one brutal attack after another.
13 were murdered, and 38 wounded, in the assault on Ft. Hood.
The Boston Marathon Bombing wounded and maimed 264 people, and ultimately left five dead – including 2 police officers.
In Chattanooga, Tennessee, five unarmed marines were shot and killed at a military recruiting center.
Last December, 14 innocent Americans were gunned down at an office party in San Bernardino, another 22 were injured.
In June, 49 Americans were executed at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, and another 53 were injured. It was the worst mass shooting in our history, and the worst attack on the LGTBQ community in our history.
In Europe, we have seen the same carnage and bloodshed inflicted upon our closest allies.
Iran, the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism, is now flush with $150 billion in cash released by the United States – plus another $400 million in ransom. Worst of all, the Nuclear deal puts Iran, the number one state sponsor of Radical Islamic Terrorism, on a path to nuclear weapons.
In short, the Obama-Clinton foreign policy has unleashed ISIS, destabilized the Middle East, and put the nation of Iran – which chants ‘Death to America’ – in a dominant position of regional power and, in fact, aspiring to be a dominant world power.
It all began in 2009 with what has become known as President Obama’s global ‘Apology Tour.’
In a series of speeches, President Obama described America as “arrogant,” “dismissive” “derisive” and a “colonial power.” He informed other countries that he would be speaking up about America’s “past errors.” He pledged that we would no longer be a “senior partner,” that “sought to dictate our terms.” He lectured CIA officers of the need to acknowledge their mistakes, and described Guantanamo Bay as a “rallying cry for our enemies.”
Perhaps no speech was more misguided than President Obama’s speech to the Muslim World delivered in Cairo, Egypt, in 2009.
