Here is the first part text of the speech Donald Trump delivered when he became the President-elect of the United States of America per CNN. I broke it down thought by thought. The rest of the speech was thanking his people.
Thank you. Thank you very much, everybody. Sorry to keep you waiting. Complicated business. Complicated. Thank you very much.
I’ve just received a call from Secretary Clinton. She congratulated us. It’s about us. On our victory, and I congratulated her and her family on a very, very hard-fought campaign.
I mean, she fought very hard. Hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time, and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country. I mean that very sincerely.
Now it is time for America to bind the wounds of division, have to get together. To all Republicans and Democrats and independents across this nation, I say it is time for us to come together as one united people. It is time.
I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be President for all of Americans, and this is so important to me. For those who have chosen not to support me in the past, of which there were a few people, I’m reaching out to you for your guidance and your help so that we can work together and unify our great country.
As I’ve said from the beginning, ours was not a campaign but rather an incredible and great movement, made up of millions of hard-working men and women who love their country and want a better, brighter future for themselves and for their family. It is a movement comprised of Americans from all races, religions, backgrounds, and beliefs, who want and expect our government to serve the people — and serve the people it will.
Working together, we will begin the urgent task of rebuilding our nation and renewing the American dream. I’ve spent my entire life in business, looking at the untapped potential in projects and in people all over the world.
That is now what I want to do for our country. Tremendous potential. I’ve gotten to know our country so well. Tremendous potential. It is going to be a beautiful thing. Every single American will have the opportunity to realize his or her fullest potential.
The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.
We are going to fix our inner cities and rebuild our highways, bridges, tunnels, airports, schools, hospitals. We’re going to rebuild our infrastructure, which will become, by the way, second to none. And we will put millions of our people to work as we rebuild it.
We will also finally take care of our great veterans who have been so loyal, and I’ve gotten to know so many over this 18-month journey. The time I’ve spent with them during this campaign has been among my greatest honors. Our veterans are incredible people.
We will embark upon a project of national growth and renewal. I will harness the creative talents of our people, and we will call upon the best and brightest to leverage their tremendous talent for the benefit of all. It is going to happen.
We have a great economic plan. We will double our growth and have the strongest economy anywhere in the world. At the same time, we will get along with all other nations willing to get along with us. We will be. We will have great relationships. We expect to have great, great relationships.
No dream is too big, no challenge is too great. Nothing we want for our future is beyond our reach.
America will no longer settle for anything less than the best. We must reclaim our country’s destiny and dream big and bold and daring. We have to do that. We’re going to dream of things for our country, and beautiful things and successful things once again.
I want to tell the world community that while we will always put America’s interests first, we will deal fairly with everyone, with everyone. All people and all other nations.
We will seek common ground, not hostility; partnership, not conflict.
Donald Trump’s acceptance speech was probably the best to be heard since Reagan. It wasn’t the most eloquent nor most constitutionally literate but it was exactly what everyone needed to hear from the bayous to the mountain peaks and every border of our land. It should help foreign entities who might feel concerned. Trump delivered it in heartfelt plain language that everyone could understand.
Why? Here is my thinking.
With a country so divided, angry, and rebellious, it falls to Trump to heal the division of everyone in our country so that we can come together to solve our internal problems with respect and intelligent discourse not hate or prejudice.
We can again return to a constitution “OF, BY, AND FOR” the people where respect for our laws and those who make and enforce them is demanded.
We honor the commitment to our forefathers and well-being while welcoming all immigrants who following legal means by their actions and dreams of freedom want to assimilate and learn to love and obey our laws, not those of some foreign state or governing body.
It puts those who are ideologies counter to our constitution on notice that they should be able to honor commitment to this nation and constitution; and, they must discontinue their efforts to subdue and destroy our country.
We have spoken to a new leader that employment; education; constitutional guarantees; national security; military strength; strong reasonable and responsible immigration laws; and financially solvent country are what we expect to see as our commitment for supporting his election.
With world leaders, it is an affirmation that we will work WITH them to find reasonable and respectful solutions to world problems. It also provides a beacon of hope for citizens in other countries that the possibility of a more stable, patriotic return to normalcy can happen even in their own lands.
It places all radical extremist groups on notice that our sleeping giant has awakened to bring to justice those who would destroy humanity but not to overpower others and their rights. It serves notice that we want to strengthen and shore up our own ability to meet world challenges so that through strength we can seek peace.
It places those with disruptive world takeover views of a world order on notice that Americans, and yes possibly many around the world, have had their blinders removed and plan to move forward as a nation stronger than those secretive game players who would destroy the world.
It places mainstreaming medias on notice that “we the people” demand and expect to be given nonpartisan truthful reporting so that transparency never again allows for shadow figures to dictate who, what, when, where, or why we receive our information or make decisions for us without our input.
It places world financial gurus and markets on notice that the American people are tired of the backroom global financial manipulation and the gambling for profit of the those who have no allegiance to country, morals, values, and respect for humanity.
That is my take on why his brief acceptance speech was so important.
