I worked from home today in an effort to avoid a crazy commute this morning as a result of the United Nations General Assembly being held this week. This gave me the opportunity to tune in to Donald Trump’s speech and I am so glad I did. This was beyond a doubt the best speech of his presidency so far. Many topics were covered, from drawing a hard stance against Islamic Extremism, detailing the dangerous effects of uncontrolled migration, calling out Kim Jong-un (aka Rocket Man) for being a brutal and dangerous dictator, providing vivid examples of how Socialism has devastated Venezuela, and providing a clear message to the world that we will not be engaging in policies that do not benefit the citizens of this country.
” Our government’s first duty is to its people, to our citizens, to serve their needs, to ensure their safety, to preserve their rights, and to defend their values. As president of the United States, I will always put America first. Just like you, as the leaders of your countries, will always and should always put your countries first”.
“The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime”.
“For the cost of resettling one refugee in the United States, we can assist more than 10 in their home region. Out of the goodness of our hearts, we offer financial assistance to hosting countries in the region and we support recent agreements of the G20 nations that will seek to host refugees as close to their home countries as possible”.
“We have learned that over the long term, uncontrolled migration is deeply unfair to both the sending and the receiving countries. For the sending countries, it reduces domestic pressure to pursue needed political and economic reform and drains them of the human capital necessary to motivate and implement those reforms. For the receiving countries, the substantial costs of uncontrolled migration are born overwhelmingly by low-income citizens whose concerns are often ignored by both media and government”.
” We have also imposed tough calibrated sanctions on the socialist Maduro regime in Venezuela, which has brought a once thriving nation to the brink of total collapse”.
“The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented”.
“Patriotism led the Poles to die to save Poland, the French to fight for a free France, and the Brits to stand strong for Britain. Today, if we do not invest ourselves, our hearts, our minds, and our nations, if we will not build strong families, safe communities, and healthy societies for ourselves, no one can do it for us”.
