*** BESTPIX *** Donald Trump Is Sworn In As 45th President Of The United States“We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and restore its promise for all of our people.” Donald Trump

It’s Going to Be Only America

Donald Trump, The Wall Street Journal, January 21-22, 2017, p. A 2

“Chief Justice Rob­erts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans and people of the world, thank you. We, the citizens of Amer­ica, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and restore its promise for all of our people.

Together, we will deter­mine the course of America and the world formany, many years to come. We will face challenges, we will con­front hardships, but we wiil get the job done.

Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to Presi­dent Obama and first lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent. Thank you.

Today’s ceremony, how­ever, has very special mean­ing because today, we are not merely transferring power from one administra­tion to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving . it back to you, the people.  For too long, a small group in our nation’s capita] has reaped the rewards of government while the people .have borne the cost- Wash-. ington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians pros­pered, but the jobs left and the factories closed. The es­tablishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have no,t been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for strug­gling families all across our land.

That all changes starting right here and right now be­cause this moment is your moment, it belongs to you.

It belongs to everyone gathered here today and ev­eryone watching all across America. This is your day. This is your celebration. And this, the United States of America, is your country.

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.

January 20th, 2017 will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.

The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.

Everyone is listening to you now. You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement, the likes of which the world has never seen before.

At the center of this move­ment is a crucial conviction, that a nation exists to serve its citizens. Americans want t great schools for their chil­dren, safe neighborhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves. These are just and reasonable demands of righteous people and a righ­teous public.

But for too many of our citizens, a different.reality exists; mothers and children trapped in poverty in our in­ner cities; rusted out facto­ries scattered like tomb­stones across the landscape of our nation; an education system flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of all knowledge; and the crime and the gangs and the drugs that have stolen too many lives- and robbed our, country of so much unreal­ized potential.

This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.

We are one nation and their pain is our pain. Their dreams are our dreams. And their success will be our. suc­cess. We share one heart, one home, and one glorious destiny. The oath of office I take today is an oath of alle­giance to all Americans.

For many decades, we’ve enriched foreign industry at the ex­pense of American industry; subsidized the armies of other countries, while allow­ing for the very sad deple­tion of our military. We’ve defended other nations’ bor­ders while refusing to defend our own.

And spent trillions and trillions of dollars overseas while America’s infrastruc­ture has fallen into disrepair and decay. We’ve made other countries rich, while the wealth, strength and confi­dence of our country has dis­sipated over the horizon.

One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions and millions of American workers that were left be­hind. The wealth of our mid­dle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed all across the world.

But that is the past. And now, we are looking only to the future.

We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power. From this day forward a new vision will govern our land. From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first, America first.

Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs will be made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our prod­ucts, stealing our companies and destroying our jobs.

Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength. I will fight for you with every breath in my body and I will never ever let you down,

America will start winning again, winning like never be­fore.

We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We will bring back our wealth. And we will bring back our dreams.

We will build new roads and highways and bridges and airports and tunnels and railways all across our won­derful nation. We will get our people off of welfare and back to work, rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor.

We will follow two simple rules; buy American and hire American.

We will seek friendship and goodwill with the na­tions of the world, but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all na­tions to put their own inter­ests first. We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to Set it shine as an example. We will shine for everyone to follow.

We will reinforce old alli­ances and form new ones and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic ter­rorism, which we will eradi­cate from the face of the Earth.

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.

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.

There should be no fear. We are protected and we will always be protected. We will be protected by the great men and women of our mili­tary and law enforcement. And most importantly, wc will be protected by God.

Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger. In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving. We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no ac­tion, constantly complaining, but never doing anything about it.

The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action.

Do not allow anyone to tell you that it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America. We will not fail Our country will thrive and prosper again.

We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to     ; unlock the mysteries of space, to free the earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, in­dustries and technologies of tomorrow. A new national pride will stir ourselves, lift our sights and heal our divi­sions.

It’s 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.

And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the wind-swept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they will their heart with the same dreams, and they are infused with the breath of life by the same almighty creator.

So to ail Americans in ev­ery city near and far, small and large, from, mountain to mountain, from ocean to ocean, hear these words. You will never be ignored again.

Your voice, your hopes, and your dreams will define our American destiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.

Together, we will make America strong again.

We will make America wealthy again. We will make America proud again.

We will make America safe again.

And yes, together we will make America great again.

Thank you. God bless you. And God bless America.

Thank you.

God bless America ”
