Trump entered to theme song of Harrison Ford movie ‘Air Force One’ to wild cheers of ‘Trump! Trump! Trump!’
‘We will be a country of generosity and warmth. But we will also be a country of law and order,’ he vowed
He added that the country can no longer afford to be ‘politically correct’ during the passionate address
‘This is the legacy of Hillary Clinton: death, destruction, terrorism and weakness,’ he said as he slammed his liberal opponent, who will face him in the November general election
‘America is far less safe – and the world is far less stable’, since Hillary was put in charge of foreign policy, he added
Trump also said Barack Obama had divided America and accused him of making it a more dangerous environment
He went on to say his greatest compassion will be dedicated to the United States’ own ‘struggling citizens’
Trump was introduced by elder daughter Ivanka, who wowed the crowd with a rousing tribute to her father
He spoke for an hour and 12 minutes – 10 minutes longer than Bill Clinton’s address at the 1996 Democratic Convention
Donald Trump made his bid for the presidency feel real on Thursday, urging Americans to propel him to the White House on a platform of crumpling up failing institutions and building new ones on the rubble.
Thousands of convention-goers cheered and shouted slogans: ‘USA! USA!’ and ‘Build that wall!’ – and a new one: ‘Yes you will!’ – as he read his script from a teleprompter and ad-libbed as he worked the crowd during the longest convention acceptance speech since 1972.
Entering to the theme song from the Harrison Ford movie ‘Air Force One,’ he heard wild cheers of ‘Trump! Trump! Trump!’ and accepted the nomination that America’s political establishment swore for a year and a half would be denied him.
More than an hour later, with balloons and confetti dropping and fireworks showing on giant video screens, the Republican presidential families – both those of Trump and of his running mate Mike Pence – joined him on stage.
In a 4,600-word speech to the Republican National Convention, the longest prepared text he’s delivered since becoming a presidential candidate, Trump staked his claim on Americans’ cravings for stability in a year full of terror attacks and anti-police ambushes.
‘We will be a country of generosity and warmth. But we will also be a country of law and order,’ he vowed, forecasting his residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington.
‘The attacks on our police, and the terrorism in our cities, threaten our very way of life. Any politician who does not grasp this danger is not fit to lead our country,’ he said.
Midway through the speech, a protester tried to unfurl a banner that read: ‘Build bridges, not walls.’
As law enforcement officers led her away, Trump riffed for an appreciative crowd: ‘How great are our police? And how great is Cleveland?’
We will be a country of generosity and warmth. But we will also be a country of law and order
Trump continued his habit of blaming the status quo on President Barack Obama.
‘The crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon, and I mean very soon, come to an end,’ he boomed. ‘Beginning on January 20th of 2017, safety will be restored.’
‘The irresponsible rhetoric of our president, who has used the pulpit of the presidency to divide us by race and color, has made America a more dangerous environment than frankly I have ever seen, and anyone in this room has ever watched or seen.
‘This Administration has failed America’s inner cities. Remember: it has failed America’s inner cities. It’s failed them on education. It’s failed them on jobs. It’s failed them on crime. It’s failed them in every way and on every single level.’
‘We cannot afford to be so politically correct anymore,’ he said. ‘So if you want to hear the corporate spin, the carefully-crafted lies, and the media myths, the Democrats are holding their convention next week. Go there!’
Trump has staked his reputation, his truckloads of cash and his family name on a quixotic quest that still has one more towering hurdle – Hillary Clinton – standing between him and the Oval Office.
He brought a rhetorical steamroller to Cleveland, casting her as the principal reason the Middle East is in tatters, the ISIS terror army has found its way West, and American inner-cities are amped-up powder kegs.
He spoke for an hour and 12 minutes – 10 minutes longer than Bill Clinton’s address at the 1996 Democratic Convention.
