‘This is your moment…your celebration,’ Trump tells Americans

Trump, in his inaugural address, called for unity, pledged to eradicate Islamic terrorism and promised to transfer power from Washington to the American people, saying they will “never be ignored again.”

In his inaugural speech on Friday, US President Donald Trump, true to his election campaign motto, declared that “from this moment on, it’s going to be America First.”

“We are not merely transferring power from one administration to another, or from one party to another — but we are transferring power from Washington, DC and giving it back to you, the American people,” Trump stated.

“The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country,” he said, continuing his chastisement of the political establishment and his promise to bring about change. “Starting right here, and right now…this moment is your moment; it belongs to you… This is your day. This is your celebration,” he said.

He reiterated his commitment to strengthen the job market, protect US borders, monitor immigration and, most emphatically, to eradicate Radical Islamic terrorism completely.

Perhaps in response to allegations of racism, Trump asserted, “It is time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget: that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American flag.”

In a call for unity in a profoundly divided society, Trump declared, “At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other.”

“When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice,” he continued. “The Bible tells us, ‘How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.’

“We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity. When America is united, America is totally unstoppable.”
