LIVE: Donald Trump – Make America Great Again Celebration
Donald Trump Speaks At Concert- “We Will Make America Greater Than Ever Before”
The Trump inaugural concert just wrapped up and, as expected, President elect Donald J. Trump took the center stage to give a speech.
Here is what he said:
“I’d like to congratulate our incredible entertainers tonight. Toby, Lee Greenwood, and all of the great talent. It was really very special. I also have to thank our incredible military talent right here. Stand up, please. You guys were great.
So this journey began eighteen months ago. I had something to do with it but you had much more to do with it than I did. I’m the messenger. I’m just the messenger. And we were tired. And I love you. Believe me, I love you. We all got tired of seeing what was happening and we wanted change, but we wanted real change. And I look so forward to tomorrow. We’re going to see something that is going to be so amazing. So many people have poured into Washington, D.C. This started out tonight being a small little concert. Then we had the idea maybe we’ll do it in front of the Lincoln Memorial. I dont’ know if it’s ever been done before, but if it has, it’s very seldom. And the people came by the thousands and thousands and here we are tonight all the way back. All the way back.
So it’s a movement that began- it’s a movement that started- and it’s a movement like we’ve never seen anywhere in the world they say. There’s never been a movement like this. And it’s something very, very special. And we’re gonna unify our country. And our phrase you all know it- half of you are wearing the hat- make America great again. But we’re going to make America great for all of our people. Everybody. Everybody throughout our country. That includes the inner cities, that includes everybody. And we’re gonna do a special job. And I can only tell you that eighteen months ago we never knew- a lot of people didn’t know, some people had a feeling- a lot of people didn’t give us much of a chance but we understood what was happening. And that last month of the campaign, when I traveled around to every place that you can imagine, state after state after state, speech after speech- and we had 10,000, 20,000, 30,000 people- there was never an empty seat, just like tonight. We didn’t know if anybody would even come tonight. This hasn’t been done before… it was the same way. And we all knew that last month of the campaign- I think a lot of us knew that first week of the campaign- but that last month of the campaign, we knew that something special was happening. And I can only tell you this- the polls started going up, up, up. But they didn’t want to give us credit. Because they forgot about a lot of us. On the campaign, I called it the forgotten man and the forgotten woman- well, you’re not forgotten anymore. That I can tell you.
So I want to thank my great family, my incredible wife Melania- they’ve been so supportive and it wasn’t easy for them, but they have been so supportive. I want to thank you most importantly and I promise you that I will work so hard. We’re gonna get it turned around. We’re gonna bring our jobs back. We’re not gonna let other countries take our jobs any longer. We’re gonna build up our great military. We’re gonna build it up. We’re gonna strengthen our borders. We’re going to do things that haven’t been done for our country for many, many decades. It’s going to change. I promise you, it’s going to change. So I’ll see you tomorrow. And I don’t care frankly if it’s going to be beautiful or if it’s going to rain like crazy. It makes no difference to me. I have a feeling it’s going to be beautiful. But I will see you tomorrow and I will be cheering you on. You’re going to cheer me on but I will be cheering you on because what we’ve done is so special. All over the world they’re talking about it, all over the world. And I love you folks. And we’re gonna work together. And we are going to make America great again and I’ll add- greater than ever before. Thank you very much and enjoy the fireworks. Thank you, everybody. Thank you.”
