Trump’s Thank You Tour vs. Obama’s Apology Tour

Cincinnati, Ohio – In a commanding performance President-Elect Donald Trump, ruled this fifty minutes on a national broadcast. There was never a dull moment. Whether it was his clear agenda laid out as the next President of the United States, or his personal remarks on the mainstream media and their blatant bias towards him throughout his run which made the large audience boo out loud, he ruled this public address.  Many of his comments made the crowd burst out in cheers: USA! USA! USA!

Taking the stage in a state whose Governor, John Kasich, would not endorse the Republican Presidential nominee or attend his nomination at the national state convention held in Ohio earlier this year, and whose fellow officers including their Secretary of the State continue to display sour grapes, voters made it clear they loved their President-Elect, Donald J. Trump. After thanking Ohio for his win in their state, Trump mentioned he had no support from Ohio’s Republican top level going into this battle, and pointed out he won Ohio by almost ten points, which is almost unheard of in politics.

It would be amazing to see Kasich or any his administration get re-elected. Any ambitious Republican in Ohio should challenge Kasich for the nomination during their next Governor election. They most likely will be rewarded not only with the opportunity to be on the ballot but to also become the next Governor of Ohio.

For any Republicans who doubted he was the man for this time, or liberals who thought he was the opposite, this speech should have at least enlightened half of his detractors. If not, those doubts reside within their own selves, not Trump or the millions of Americans who recognize what he brings to the table as a leader and patriot.

The clear difference here between the exiting President of the United States and the President-Elect, is how Barack Hussein Obama chose his initial months as POTUS to go on an apology tour, where he flew around the world to basically tell the world, America should be held accountable for its actions, beliefs, history, and in his view, misguided freedom, so to speak.

Trump, is choosing to spend his initial months as America’s incoming President, in thanking voters, and the hard-working people of the United States for believing in him, their history, the vision of the Founding Fathers, and the future of their country. No apologies for freedom.

In regards to the network media at large, who wears their support for any democrat on their sleeves, Trump mused how on Election Day they kept making comments where traditional Republican states had maybe changed from red to blue, or further into the day were too close to call or after polls had closed, x amount of states were expected to go for Clinton, and even late into the evening, early morning hours, wouldn’t call the election for him because they just couldn’t believe he’d won.

Speaking to the people, openly and honestly, he clearly described what he faced as a candidate for America’s highest office, and maintained his remarks about the mainstream media and how they were bad people. “The extremely dishonest press,” he pointed out on the media stage as usual, “Extremely dishonest people,” he continued which incited enthusiastic boos from the audience, Trump asked, “How about when a major anchor who hosted a debate, started crying when she realized we won?” (Referring to ABC’s Martha Raddatz) “She doesn’t understand things will be much better,” he said after a pause.

With great zeal, the republican President-Elect cheered, “We won in a landslide!!” The crowd cheers.

He recollected how the liberal media said in a broadcast, “There’s no way Donald Trump can break the big blue wall.” With another passionate shout out to his fans, he mused, “We not only broke the wall, we shattered that sucker!” Cheers.

Observing on media’s comments post-Election Day, he reflected on an ESPN announcer who said that was the most exciting event I’ve ever seen. Trump mused, “this business is tougher than the NFL.”

A rogue Clinton supporter gets taken out of the room and Donald comments after the momentary ruckus, “They don’t know that Hillary lost a couple of weeks ago.” He observed how many protesters don’t even vote.

In addressing his Commerce appointee, Wilbur Ross, he cited how the liberal media complained this person was a billionaire, as if this was offensive. Trump asked his audience, “Well, he knows how to make money, right? We need that…” Trump basically described he could have hired someone who was knowledgeable but with no money, but that wouldn’t be the better choice by clear example.  In a statement yesterday, Trump said, “Wilbur Ross is a champion of American manufacturing and knows how to help companies succeed.”

He maintained his position that he would be hiring as reported the best killers for the cabinet…

Trump thanked his staggering number of votes from veterans, military and police. He added he was looking into the best person to head the Department of Veterans’ Affairs and make this a successful agency that truly helps veterans.

In terms of jobs, the President-Elect quoted job numbers and how they had dropped dramatically over a decade. Michigan, for example, went from 900K to 600K. Trump said, “Today we’re living through the greatest theft of American jobs.” He reminded viewers how he said throughout this campaign and maintains today in Flint, MI, residents used to make cars and you couldn’t drink the water in Mexico, and now today, the cars are made in Mexico, and you can’t drink the water in Flint. Shaking his head, Trump said, “Gross incompetence.”

The President-Elect recently made notable news in saving 1,100 jobs in his Vice President-Elect Mike Pence’s home state of Indiana. Air-conditioning Company Carrier planned to move these factory positions to Mexico before Trump’s negotiations. He told Ohio “We’re going to remove the rust from the rust belt.”

Asking the audience how they felt about his recent comments about penalties for those who burned the American flag and if they agreed, he was met with mass cheers of “USA! USA! USA!” He proclaimed a new slogan that exuded brilliance in its simplicity and meaningfulness: “Buy America Hire America.”

President-Elect Trump also addressed many important issues facing the United States today – NAFTA, energy, infrastructure, taxes, Obamacare, terrorism and deepening the harbors that are being threatened right now worldwide.

Trump said that African-Americans gave him more votes than any Republican in some time, but the numbers still remain small as African-Americans still believe it’s the Democrat Party that has their best interest despite history. Trump did get one percent more than Romney with this group with 8% to Romney’s 7%. For the democrats, more importantly, Clinton was unable to achieve the numbers Obama did, receiving 88% of their vote to Obama’s 93%. Were African American voters for Obama voting more because of race or were the same voters for Trump voting more because they see him as more of an answer than Clinton and the same democrat agenda they’ve seen repeated for decades? Critics on one reason Clinton lost, is because she failed to garner the extra 5% of this demographic than Obama did during both campaigns.

Playing with the audience in this televised venue that was streaming to tens of millions if not more, he appealed to them to not let this information outside of the room, (wink) but his new Secretary of Defense, which would officially be announced on Monday, was going to be General James “Mad Dog” Mattis, someone as great as General Patton.

Parting words left by Trump appealed to people to come together. Calling for all citizens to unite he proclaimed, “We pledge allegiance to one flag, and that flag is the American flag. From now on, it’s going to be America First. America First.” He asked for all political persuasions to “join our movement” and to hope to see all of us working again; it was up to the will of Americans. He proudly stated it was Americans who dug out the Panama Canal and walked on the moon…he remarked how Americans today have been taught to think small but they needed to believe in America’s greatness once again.

In closing, he said, “we don’t know what the next page will read, but it will be great.” He humbly told his fellow Americans they were the captains – “You’re the movement. I’m the messenger.”
