WASHINGTON, July 22, 2016 – Donald Trump delivered his acceptance speech Thursday at the Republican convention in Cleveland, promising to fix a badly broken America and to bring law and order back to the country.
Trump’s message to the GOP is that the crime and violence that have riddled America will come to an end when he is elected president. Trump’s plan aims to create safe neighborhoods, secure borders and protect America from terrorism.
Trump’s message was aimed at creating a unified party, following Ted Cruz’s refusal to endorse the nominee and delegates who staged a floor fight over the rules and high-ranking Republicans’ boycotting the entire event. Trump spent the evening selling himself as the protector of America.
Trump argued that the United States is in decline under the Obama administration, citing a litany of grim statistics about crime and violence, terrorism, national security and the Americans who have stopped looking for work.
He spoke to the LGBTQ community, saying he will do everything in his power to protect LGBTQ citizens from the “violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology.”
Trump repeated promises he made during previous campaign stops, saying he will stop illegal immigration with a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and change trade agreements that have stolen manufacturing jobs from the United States.
Touching on his “law and order” theme, he introduced the crowd to the story of Sarah Root, a 21-year-old girl who was killed a day after graduating from Bellevue University with a 4.0 grade point and the status of first in her class.
Her killer, Eswin Mejia, a border-crosser who had beenreleased and made his way to Nebraska, smashed into her car. Mejia’s blood alcohol level was four times the legal limit
Like Captain America, Donald Trump is fighting to free America of the politically correct rhetoric of the Obama and Clinton Democrats, which have put America and the traditional values of the American people always in the wrong.
Whether Trump’s message of “nation protector” is accepted by voters will be seen on election day. Voters must determine whether Trump is the one who can actually keep America safe or whether America is in better hands with Hillary Clinton, one who has failed to keep Americans safe.
Trump’s message caps off a star-studded Republican convention complete with Hollywood A-listers and former campaign rivals. Donald Trump’s task now is to deliver his message to the entire country and not just the Republican party. Current polling shows Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton nearing a dead heat.
Trump is still battling the “Never Trump” supporters which could lead to voters to vote for a third-party candidate.
