President Trump asked Americans to reelect him for four more years Thursday night, promising to restore the nation’s struggling economy to record prosperity, rewriting history on his handling of the pandemic and warning that Joe Biden would be a ‘Trojan horse’ for the radical left wing in America.
While the political setting on the South lawn of the White House shattered all the norms and traditions pf American political history, it was a surprisingly flat speech from the president that echoed many of the same promises and attacks as four years ago, promises to repair the economy, protect the country from Democrats and socialism, ripping into the Washington establishment, bemoaning protests of police violence in the nation’s cities and criticizing his opponents long record, with Biden taking place of 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton.
He argued that a Biden administration would lead to mob rule in Democrat-run cities and said that “if Joe Biden does not have the strength to stand up to wild-eyed Marxists like Bernie Sanders, the Vermont senator, and his fellow radicals, then how is he ever going to stand up for you?”
Formally accepting the Republican re-nomination, he said he was proud of the extraordinary progress we have made together over the last four incredible years and brimming with confidence for the bright future we will build for America over the next four years.
Trump papered over his flawed handling of the pandemic, attempting to focus voters attention on brighter times ahead and vowing a produce a vaccine for covid-19 before the end of the year.
He said, “We are meeting this challenge. we are delivering lifesaving therapies and will produce a vaccine before the end of the year or may be sooner. We will defeat the virus, end the pandemic and emerge stronger than ever before.”
Trump once blamed China for the spread of the virus.
The President who has consistently ignored and undercut the advice of scientists and public health officials, accused Biden of wanting to surrender to the virus. He said, “Instead of following the science, Joe Biden wants to inflict a painful shutdown on the entire country.”
