Trump touted his plan to “put America First. Americanism, not globalism, will be our credo,” he vowed, which he said means “safe neighbourhoods, secure borders and protection from terrorism.”
“I am your voice,” he vowed, portraying himself as the super hero of the common man.
“I have embraced crying mothers who have lost their children because our politicians put their personal agendas before the national good. I have no patience for injustice, no tolerance for government incompetence, no sympathy for leaders who fail their citizens.
“When innocent people suffer, because our political system lacks the will, or the courage, or the basic decency to enforce our laws — or worse still, has sold out to some corporate lobbyist for cash — I am not able to look the other way,” he said.
“I have joined the political arena so that the powerful can no longer beat up on people that cannot defend themselves.”
He concluded: “America is a nation of believers, dreamers, and strivers that is being led by a group of censors, critics, and cynics … We must choose to believe In America. History is watching us now. It’s waiting to see if we will rise to the occasion, and if we will show the whole world that America is still free and independent and strong.
“I am asking for your support tonight so I can be your champions in the White House … I’m with you, the American people.
“We will make America strong again, we will make America proud again, we will make America safe again, and we will make America great again.”
