President Trump spoke in front of the America First Policy Institute today in a return trip to DC.
President Trump’s message is exceptional again. The country is getting destroyed by the Biden Administration. Below are some excerpts from his speech:
The American Dream is being torn to shreds—and we will not have a country left if this economic, social, and civilizational decay is not quickly reversed.
And yet, there is time for us to bring America back from the brink. We gather today on the verge of a historic midterm election. The American People are poised to REJECT the failed reign of Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and the Radical Left in a momentous landslide. This November, the People are going to vote to STOP the destruction of our country, and they are going to vote to rescue America’s Future.
There is a tremendous amount to be done—from reviving our economy, to liberating our energy, to restoring our standing in the world. But for this afternoon, I want to speak about some of the core elements of our agenda, and in particular, PUBLIC SAFETY. There is no higher priority than cleaning up our streets, controlling our border, stopping the drugs from pouring in, and quickly restoring Law and Order in America.
Under Democrat rule—in Democrat-run cities, Democrat-run states, and a Democrat-run Federal Government—the criminals have been given, for a very long time, FREE REIGN.
Our streets are soaked with the blood of innocent victims. Many of our once-great cities, from New York to Chicago to L.A.—where the Middle Class used to flock to live the American Dream—are now like WARZONES.
Starting with our new majorities in Congress next year, and continuing under the next Republican President, we need an all-out effort to defeat violent crime in America.
We have to give our police back their authority, resources, power, and prestige. Leave our police alone. Let them do their job. Give them back their RESPECT. They know what to do. We have to allow them to do it.
The mere concept of defunding the police should never be heard of again. Likewise, the idea of stripping them of their liability shields—so that when a police officer is threatened they have to hire and pay for their own lawyers—should be totally out of the question.
We need to return to stop-and-frisk policies in cities, and take the guns away from criminals who shouldn’t be having guns.
We need the largest increase in the hiring of police officers in American HISTORY—to get more police on the streets than EVER before, walking every beat. There should be a squad car on every corner if that’s what it takes to stop the killing.
And where there is a true and total breakdown of law and order—where citizens’ most basic rights have been violated—then the federal government can and should send in the National Guard to restore order and secure the peace without waiting for a governor’s approval.
For the good of everyone involved, the homeless need to go to shelters, the long-term mentally ill need to go to institutions, and unhoused drug addicts need to go to rehab, or if necessary and appropriate, to jail. But wherever they go, surrendering our parks and sidewalks to crazy people is NOT AN OPTION.
When we regain the majority, we need to use the purse strings to prohibit even one dime from being spent to implement Joe Biden’s Open Borders agenda, and to force him to deport the illegal aliens that he is now refusing to deport. Republicans should be laying the groundwork for this TODAY—we need to stand and fight and demand that REAL Border Security be included in the spending bill this September.
To Drain the Swamp and root out the Deep State, we need to make it much easier to fire rogue bureaucrats who are deliberately undermining democracy, or at a minimum, just want to hold on their jobs. Congress should pass historic reforms empowering the President to ensure that any bureaucrat who is corrupt, incompetent, or unnecessary for the job can be told, “YOU’RE FIRED.” Washington will be an entirely different place.
Two years ago, we had greatness like no one had ever seen, and soon we will have greatness again.
With all my heart and soul, I firmly believe that the American People will reject a fate of decline, demoralization, and ultimately, defeat. And I believe that we will come together, and choose instead a future of renewal, revival, recovery, resurgence, and in the end, a nation that is more exceptional than ever before.
America’s story is far from over—and in fact, we are just getting ready for an INCREDIBLE COMEBACK—a comeback that we have no choice but to make.
