There was even a line about who the future DOES and DOES NOT belong to tucked into this speech. Obama will NOT appreciate it the way you and I will.
Our time is one of great contests, high stakes, and clear choices. The essential divide that runs all around the world and throught history is once again thrown into stark relief.
It is the divide between those whose thirst for control deludes them into thinking they are destined to rule over others, and those people and nations who want only to rule themselves. I have the immense privilege of addressing you today as the elected leader of a nation that prizes liberty, independence, and self-government above all.
The United States, after having spent over 2.5 Trillion dollars since my election to completely rebuild our great military is also by far the world’s most powerful nation. Hopefully, it will never have to use this power.
Americans know that in a world where others seek conquest and domination our nation must be strong in wealth, in might and in spirit. That is why the United States vigorously defends the traditions and customs that made us who we are.
Like my beloved country, each nation represented in this hall has a cherished history, culture and heritage that is worth defending and celebrating, and which gives us our singular potential and strength. The free world must embrace its national foundations. It must not attempt to erase them or replace them. Looking around, and all over this large magnificent planet, the truth is plain to see. If you want freedom, take pride in your country. If you want democracy, hold on to your sovereignty. And if you want peace… love your nation.
Wise leaders always put the good of their own people and their own country first. The future does not belong to globalists — the future belongs to patriots. The future belongs to sovereign and independent nations who protect their citizens, respect their neighbors and honor the differences that make each country special and unique.
Some bullet points of what comes after:
National Renewal in the USA — empowering the dreams and aspirations of our citizens.
Domestic unemployment rate at lowest rates, jobs are being produced due to tax cuts.
Minority employment numbers improving.
2.5 Million Americans lifted out of poverty.
Other countries will carry their fair share of defense constwsthat America has borne in the past.
Reform international Trade
— End exploitation of imbalanced trade agreements that killed jobs.
— Fair & Reciprocal trade with partners (Canada, Mexico, Japan, UK among the countries mentioned)
— Special emphasis on China’s past and present behavior, private property and rule of law, and that the way forward will come with expectations… and Hong Kong.
— World’s #1 State sponsor of terrorism, and fuelling the tragic wars in both Syria and Yemen
— Squandering their country’s wealth in a fanatical quest for nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them.
— Withdrew from the Iran Nuclear deal: did not allow inspection; did not cover ballistic missiles. Sanctions administered, which have been moved to highest level in response to attacks on Saudi Arabia.
“The countries of the region share a common interest in battling extremism and unleashing economic opportunity. That is why it is so important to have full, normalized relations between Israel and its neighbors. Only a relationship built on common interest, mutual respect and religious tolerance can forge a better future.”
“America is ready to embrace friendship with all who genuinely seek peace and respect. Many of America’s closest friends today were once our greatest foes. The United States has never believed in permanent enemies. We want partners, not adversaries. American knows that while anyone can make war, only the most courageous can choose peace. For this same reason, we have persued bold diplomacy on the Korean Peninsula.”
North Korea must denuclearize.
Hope of a Brighter Future in Afghanistan, but Taliban has continued with terrorist attacks.
— undermines prosperity, rips apart societies, and empowers ruthless criminal cartels.
Mass illegal migration is unfair, unsafe and unsustainable for everyone involved. The sending countries and the depleted countries — and they become depleted very fast — but the youth is not taken care of and human capital goes to waste.
The receiving countries are overburdened with more migrants than they can responsibly accept and their migrants themselves are assaulted, exploited and abused by vicious coyotes. Nearly 1/3 of women who make the journey north are sexually assaulted along the way. Yet here in the United States and around the world, there is a growing cottage industry of radical activists and NGO’s that promote human smuggling.
These groups encourage illegal immigration and demand erasure of national borders.
Today I have a message for those open-border activists who cloak themselves in the rhetoric of social justice: Your policies are not just, your policies are cruel and evil. You are empowering criminal organizations that prey on innocent men, women and children. You put your own false sense of virtue before the lives and well-being of countless innocent people. Wen you undermine border security, you undermine human rights and human dignity.
Many of the countries today are coping with the challenges of uncontrolled migration. Each of you has an absolute right to protect your borders, and so, of course, does our country.
Today, we must resolve to end human smuggling, end human trafficking and put these criminal networks out of business for good.
— Working with Mexico, Canada, Guatemala, Hondouras, El Salvadore and Panama…
— Mexico is showing us great respect, and I respect them in return.
Do not pay the smugglers. Do not pay the coyotes. Do not put yourselves in danger. Do not put your children in danger. Because if you make it here, you will NOT be allowed in. You will be returned home. You will NOT be released into our country as long as I am President of the United States.
We will enforce our laws and protect our borders.
Brutal Oppression — Cuba, Nicaraugua, Venezuela
Venezuela — 10 hours a day in bread lines; 50,000 detained; modern-day death squads 1000s of extra-judicial killings. “…Maduro is a Cuban puppet, protected by Cuban bodyguards, hiding from his own people while Cuba plunders Venezuela’s oil wealth to sustain it’s own corrupt communist rule.”
“One of the most serious challenges our countries face is the specter of Socialism. It’s the wrecker of nations and the destroyer of societies. Events in Venezuela remind us all that Socialism and Communism are not about justice, they are not about equality, they are not about lifting up the poor, and they are certainly not about the good of the nation. Socialism and Communism are about one thing only: power for the ruling class.
Today I repeat a message to the world that I have delivered at home: America will never be a Socialist country. In the last century, Socialism and Communism killed One Hundred Million People. Sadly, as we see in Venezuela, the death toll continues in this country. These totalitarian ideologies combined with modern technology have the power to excise new and disturbing forms of suppression and domination.
For this reason, the United States is taking steps to better screen foreign technology and investments, to better protect our data and our security, and I urge other nations to do the same.
Freedom and Democracy must be constantly guarded and protected, both abroad and from within. We must always be skeptical of those who want conformity and control.
— Social media power concentration over information access and speech.
— permanent political classes and faceless bureaucracies identified as a threat.
— free people must not be enlisted in ‘blacklisting’ their neighbors
Treatment of Minorites
Call for the decriminalization of homosexuality, globally.
Call for full rights of women, globally.
Call for religious leaders and freedom to be protected globally.
Call for global bureaucrats to stop forcing their values on nations that value unborn life. “every child, born and unborn, is a sacred gift from God.”
Declaration that he will NEVER ratify the UN Arms Trade treaty, which would threaten the liberties of law-abiding citizens.
Tyranny advances under many names and many theories, but it always comes down to the desire for domination. It protects not the interests of many, but the privilege of a few.
Our Founders gave us a system designed to restrain this dangerous impulse. They chose to entrust American power to those most invested in the Fate of our nation… a proud and fiercely independent people.
The true good of the nation can only be pursued by those who love it; by citizens who are rooted in its history, who are nourished by its culture, committed to its values, attached to its people and who know that its future is theirs to build or theirs to lose.
Patriots see a nation and its destiny in ways no one else can. Liberty is only preserved, sovereignty is only secured; democracy is only sustained; greatness is only realized by the will and devotion of patriots.
In their spirit, the strength is found to resist oppression, the inspiration to forge legacy, the goodwill to seek friendship, and the bravery to reach for peace.
Love of our nations makes the world better for ALL nations, so to all the leaders here today, join us in the most fulfilling mission a person could have, the most profound contribution anyone can make.
Lift up your nations, cherish your culture, honor your histories, treasure your citizens, make your country strong and prosperous and righteous. Honor the dignity of your people and nothing will be outside of your reach.
When our nations are greater, our future will be brighter, people will be happier, and our partnerships will be stronger.
With God’s help, together we will cast off the enemies of liberty, and overcome the oppressors of dignity. We will set new standards of living and reach new heights of of human achievement we will rediscover old truths, unravel old mysteries, and make thrilling new breakthroughs. And we will find more beautiful friendship, and more harmony among nations than ever before.
My fellow leaders, the path to peace and progress and freedom and justice and a better world for all humanity begins at home.
Thank you, God Bless you,
God bless the nations of the world,
and God Bless America.
Thank-you very much.
