President Donald Trump & First Lady Melania Trump Mark a 9/11 Moment Of Silence At White House (VIDEO)
President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump along with White House staff and an honor guard hold a moment of silence on the White House lawn to remember those lives lost 16 years ago on September 11.
9/11/17: President Trump speaks at Pentagon ceremony.
“Though we can never erase your pain or bring back those you lost. We can honor their sacrifice by pledging our resolve to do what ever we must to keep our people safe.”
JUST HOW MENTALLY SICK IS THE LEFT?
President Donald Trump delivered a speech to the 2017 National Scout Jamboree in West Virginia on Monday night, to the joy of the Scouts in attendance and to the outrage and indignation of some reporters. What a shock. President Trump praised the Boy Scouts and their success, but the small minded MSM and LEFT could only hear what they wanted to. How very sad. It would appear that the MSM took offense to being called “fake news” and because President Trump referenced loyalty in his speech. It didn’t take long for the LEFT to become unhinged, but of course they never had a problem when Barack Obama would go into class rooms and teachers would indoctrinate the youth of America, Mmm, mmm, mmm, Barack Hussein Obama. Oh the hypocrisy. The LEFT just cannot get over the fact that President Trump is loved by many. The LEFT just cannot stand, God, Country, Brave, Loyalty and other good qualities.
President Donald Trump turned a Boy Scouts event into a campaign-style rally Monday, starting off by saying he’d put aside the “fake news” and other issues in Washington while addressing the Boy Scouts of America 2017 National Scout Jamboree.
“I said, who the hell wants to speak about politics when I’m in front of the Boy Scouts?” Trump said.
Trump went on to dive into politics anyway — blasting the media, pushing for the repeal of Obamacare and making a pointed remark about “loyalty.”
Listing off the virtues of Boy Scouts at the West Virginia speech, Trump said: “As the scout law says, a scout is trustworthy, loyal,” Trump said, before adding, “We could use some more loyalty, I will tell you that.”
Just a note to the clueless and vile LEFT, who hate the Boy Scouts anyhow, there is a reason why President Trump referenced loyalty. Because according to the Boy Scout Law, a Scout is:
BRILLIANTLY WRITTEN SPEECH, AMAZINGLY DELIVERED AND MADE DEMOCRATS LOOK REALLY, REALLY SMALL … THIS I CAN TELL YOU!!!
Tonight in President Donald Trump’s first Address to Congress, he called for a “restart the engine of the American economy” through tax cuts, better trade deals, immigration enforcement and a $1 trillion infrastructure program, the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, historic tax reform for business and the middle class, an increase in military spending by $54 billion, while cutting other agency budgets by the same amount and leave entitlements like Medicare untouched. Trump asked for Republicans and Democrats to work together for the sake of the American people to give the people a real healthcare plan that they are not forced to buy from the government, lower the cost and provide an actually working form of insurance that works before Obamacare implodes. And he called for the Department of Defense to develop a plan to demolish and destroy ISIS, a network of lawless savages that have slaughtered Muslims and Christians, and men, women, and children of all faiths and beliefs.
By contrast, Democrats looked so small tonight as they refused to stand or clap for President Trump’s vision of school choice for blacks and Hispanics, jobs for Americans, or the support of United States citizens who were victims of of illegal immigrant violence. Many in this country, especially Independents are asking themselves just who’s side are you on?
President Trump declared Tuesday that a “new chapter of American greatness is now beginning” as he made economic revival the centerpiece of his first address to Congress – issuing a clarion call to “restart the engine of the American economy” through tax cuts, better trade deals, immigration enforcement and a $1 trillion infrastructure program.
He also called on Congress to replace what he called the “imploding ObamaCare disaster,” with legislation that lowers costs and expands access, an ambitious goal for GOP lawmakers still trying to come together on a plan.
The president outlined his agenda in an address to a joint session of Congress that lasted roughly an hour and focused almost exclusively on priorities at home, not abroad. He offered a decidedly upbeat vision for the future of the country that stood in contrast to his at-times foreboding inauguration address.
“Everything that is broken in our country can be fixed. Every problem can be solved. And every hurting family can find healing, and hope,” Trump said.
Trump for the most part traded the contentious and punchy tone of the last few weeks for loftier – some might say more presidential – rhetoric. Declaring “the time for small thinking is over,” Trump appealed to the country to “believe, once more, in America.”
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.
