At noon on Friday January 20th, 2017 Donald J. Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. In his inaugural address the new president reassured his constituents that he would not let them down. President Trump was right when he said that his inauguration was like no other as it was not merely a transfer of power from a political elite of one party to another political elite of a different party, rather President Trump’s inauguration signified power being returned from the corrupt global elites back to us: the people.
For too long we the people have suffered under the yoke of the global and financial elites which dominate our political class. Washington has become a quagmire of special interests, corruption, and global financial entities. Our political class has become hijacked by shills for these global elites which made their ascension to power possible in the first place with massive campaign donations and favorable coverage in the corrupt corporate media. These politicians serve the interests of these global power structures, not the interests of their constituents. President Donald Trump will drain the swamp of Washington D.C. and will create a new American government which actually does what is in the best interest of its citizens.
We the people have taken our country back from this hostile clique of elites who care only for their own self-interests at the expense of the well-being of the American people. We will now, again, have an American government by, of, and for the people. This new American government will have strong borders, obey the rule of law, and will craft policy that benefits the American people and not the big global, political, and financial power structures. Donald Trump will be a president who puts America first and, in his own words, “Americanism not globalism will be our credo.”
President Donald Trump, under the direction of the people, will forge a new American government which will protect its borders from the ongoing invasion of illegal immigration, will make new trade deals which protect American workers and American industry, and will pursue an America First policy both at home and abroad. Under these America First policies the people will start winning like never before and there will be wealth and prosperity across the nation. Moreover, President Trump will ring in a patriotic wave of national pride which will usher in a new era of enhanced patriotism and American civic nationalism. For too long, the United States has not put its national interests first in foreign or domestic policies which have matriculated in the form of disastrous trade deals, ludicrous foreign wars, and the current incursion of illegal aliens across our borders. America First policies will include fair trade deals which protect American workers and American industry, a foreign policy which eradicates radical Islam off the face of this planet while avoiding the unnecessary wars of nation building, and an impenetrable wall across our southern border which will prevent illegal aliens from flooding into our great nation.
President Donald Trump’s “big-league” America signals a return of the American government to its people, and together we will make America strong again, we will make America wealthy again, we will make America proud again, we will make America safe again, and we will MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! Together, we will make America greater than ever before.
