We no longer will give away American wealth to the rest of the world ad infinitum. There will be limits.
Trump put forth a program of America First, that the government of the United States will operate in the best interests of the American people and that it will consider every action it takes in the light of how it helps the average working American.
A healthy strong America can provide limited help to the rest of the world but in its present course, the nation will become bankrupt and no longer able to help anybody, even its own citizens. Trump made it plain that we will no longer subordinate our interests to the rest of the world’s interests and that we will not allow the rest of the world to meddle into our affairs or make decisions for us.
The forgotten Man and Woman is forgotten no more!
Lest anyone think that President Trump (it feels so good to write these words) was making it up as he went along the campaign trail, his inaugural address should set their hearts at rest. The new president continued his campaign themes into his inaugural signaling that they will dominate his policy-making and thinking for all of his presidency.
He really declared the end of globalism, noting that the world’s foremost nation was putting its own needs first. And he notified the world’s most controlling establishment that the goals of the average American would have supremacy.
No longer will the style and vogue of Paris and German salons or the consensus of self-interested bureaucrats be prevailing. Everything will be judged strictly by one criterion: What is best for the people that own this nation — the American people.
An economy committed only to the aggregation of wealth will now have to focus instead on the distribution of prosperity, not to different ethnic groups, but to those whose labor has made the wealth possible in the first place.
It was a fighting inaugural, devoid of the grace, eloquence, and trappings of previous speeches. It plainly articulated what President Trump plans to do and elaborated the themes of his election campaign. Watching the speech, we come to realize that President Trump regards the government as a continuation of the campaign by other means. He did not run for office as a candidate who now sheds the populist suit and governs as a bureaucrat. He is going to govern as he ran — raw, unvarnished, clear, and decisive.
The message of this inaugural is clear: President Donald J. Trump means what he says.
