“Nobody knows the system better than me, which is why I alone can fix it”, he will say.
“You’re bound by the pledge”, like one is bound by the speech, Trump told his supporters – drawing a parallel to the Republican Party pledge that Cruz had signed, but has broken, since he isn’t supporting the GOP nominee.
Trump formally accepted the party’s presidential nomination, saying “I humbly and gratefully accept your nomination for the presidency of the United States”. He promised to renegotiate trade deals, reduce taxes, invest in infrastructure, reduce government regulations, lift restrictions on American energy, and “repeal and replace disastrous Obamacare!”
It sparked a backlash among Trump’s fellow Republicans, many of whom rushed to reassure the states that the US wouldn’t abandon them.
“The crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon, and I mean soon, come to an end”. He again blasted what he called the unfair trade tactics of competitors like China.
As Trump moved into the general election campaign, he stuck to the controversial proposals of his primary campaign, including building a wall along the entire U.S.-Mexico border and suspending immigration from nations “compromised by terrorism”.
Trump may be a billionaire, but there’s something working-class striver about him, and he has always had the common touch.
In one indication of how Trump is changing the tenor of the Republican Party, he did not mention God in his prepared remarks, but he did make a direct appeal to the gay and lesbian community.
“If he gives it, I will not accept it”, Trump stated about a potential endorsement from his primary rival.
“We are going to have an immigration system that works, but one that works for the American people”, according to Trump’s speech draft. Trump blamed Obama for making the country more risky when the statistics and facts reveal that America is safer under Obama. “And when we get there, we will indeed make America great again”.
The chairman of the Hillary for America campaign, John Podesta, attacked Mr Trump’s speech as divisive.
After Trump’s comments, the White House said the United States has an “ironclad” commitment to mutual defense among the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies.
Instead, it was filled with the same themes that secured him the Republican Party’s nomination.
When the crowd tried that Thursday night, Trump shook his head “no” and showed his extemporaneous chops by ad-libbing, “Let’s defeat her in November”.
A big question, however, is whether Trump’s throwback message, which worked so well for Nixon, can translate to success in a very different country and with a very different kind of candidate.
“There can be no prosperity without law and order”, Trump said.
The first three days of this week’s convention e gathering bordered on chaos, starting with a plagiarism charge involving his wife Melania Trump’s speech and moving on to Texas Sen.
Delegates hold signs in support of Donald Trump during roll call at the Republican National Convention. Additionally, a recent expose by the Post asserts that Trump has been involved in racial controversies over four decades. Ted Cruz, stunned delegates by not endorsing Trump in a prime time speech Wednesday.
Speaking of man’s best friend, Cruz also noted that he wasn’t a “servile puppy dog” and that he wasn’t in the habit of endorsing people who attack his wife and father. “I think that looking at his children and how great they all are and how much they all love their father tells you a lot about the man as a parent”, Kiernan said. When GOP leaders blocked that effort, the anti-Trump delegates staged a noisy protest on the floor.
Google also said that there was a 15,000 percent increase in searches on Thursday night for LGBTQ, the acronym that Trump used during his speech. “They’re so honest… They’re such honorable people…” “I do not promise the millennium in the morning”, he said in his 1968 convention speech.
