commentary by Viktor Sukov —
President-elect Donald Trump has launched his “Thank You Tour” with the intention of thanking his supporters across America which is a first in case you didn’t know it. It’s nice to see someone with gratitude and hopefully by his example all of us can learn to be grateful in a society that is far too often not grateful for anything. As he launched his tour he let it be known that he intends to nominate retired US Marine Corp General James Mattis, aka “Mad Dog,” as his Defense Secretary which hopefully well bring the US military our of its PC nightmare and we’ll once again have real soldiers again and real military leadership. Mattis is a man with a set between his legs and is just what America needs to drive home to our enemies that the USA isn’t going to take anymore of their bullshit!
On his tour President-elect Trump also outlined his “America First” policy which is something this nation has been in need of for a long, long time now. Speaking in Cincinnati, Ohio said, “NOW is the time to embrace the one thing that truly unites us….AMERICA!” He went on to say, “There is NO global anthem! There is no global flag, no global currency, no global citizenship. We will be united as AMERICANS.” Speaking further Trump said that attempts to “separate us by race, by age, by income, by place of birth, and by geography” are O-V-E-R! Additionally, he added, “We hear a lot of talk about how we are becoming a globalized world, but the relationships that people value in this country are LOCAL.”
“We pledge allegiance to one flag and that flag is the AMERICAN flag! From now on its going to be AMERICA FIRST,” Trump told the gathered crowd adding that never again will any other interest come before our national interest. “…when America is UNITED nothing is beyond our reach. We are going to have a country that is so great, in so many different ways….we WILL compete in the world….in a world that is a two-way road, not the one-way around! The advantages will come back to our country as they haven’t for many years,” Trump went on to say. “We’re going to put OURSELVES FIRST! We seek peace and harmony with the nations of the world BUT that means recognizing the right of every country, INCLUDING OUR OWN, to look after its citizens. We’ve put other countries first and we’ve had people running our country that truly did not know what the HELL they were doing!” Trumps statements were interrupted numerous times by applause and cheers.
In terms of the American worker Trump said his administration is going to protect the American worker that past administrations have forgotten and they’ve forgotten that it was the American worker who truly built this country. He promised his administration WILL NOT FORGET! He pointed out that one of the major reasons America is so divided today is due to our government’s failure to protect the American worker and their families. “We are not unified,” Trump said, “but WE WILL BE!”
Referring to Washington politicians (namely that WORTHLESS body we call Congress) Trump told the crowd “Washington politicians have spent to long appealing to particular interests, they’ve forgotten how to appeal to the NATIONAL INTERESTS! Our goal is to strengthen the bonds of trust between our citizens, to restore the sense of membership in our shared NATIONAL COMMUNITY.” Continue reading
