Americans, people of the world:
thank you. We, the citizens of
America, are now joined in a
great national effort to rebuild
our country and to restore its
promise for all of our people.

The wealth of our middle class

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,
our borders, our wealth. And
we will bring back our
dreams. 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 let it shine as an example
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 completely 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.

good and pleasant it is when
God’s people live together in
