I am here for one main reason. To thank you, the people of North Carolina…. I want to give a special thank you to the military families and veterans of North Carolina. Our men and women represent the absolute best of us. They understand that to accomplish the mission we must all be pulling in the same direction, together. Our debt to them is eternal and everlasting.
We love our flag.
Tomorrow is the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor.
Radical Islam: An ideology of death that slaughters men, women and children. We are going to defeat that force strongly and quickly. We will prevail.
The military families in North Carolina are a national treasure.
We will make America Great Again with the taking care of our military.
Here are our priorities:
All our men and women will have the supplies, training… and resources they need.
For our veterans, the right to see a private doctor when the lines are long.
A commitment to only use and engage our military sources when it is in the vital interst of the United States.
We are going to have the finest equipment in the world. We are not going to be a depleted military anymore.
We want to strengthen old friendships and seek out new friendships. We want to promote stability. This destructive cycle of intervention must come to an end.
We are going to start spending on ourselves.
We don’t want countries taking advantage of us anymore. We want to be the smart people.
We build up our military not as an act of aggression but as an act of prevention. In short we seek peace through strength. We are going to be stronger than ever before.
