In the face of an increasingly dishonest and hostile liberal media, President Trump did what he does best: Take his message directly to the people.
In his first post-Inauguration rally, Trump spoke to a raucous crowd of 9,000 supporters in Melbourne, Florida, on Saturday evening. The president was accompanied by First Lady Melania Trump, who led the crowd in a prayer before introducing her husband.
Many on Twitter pointed out that CNN cropped out Trump’s African-American supporters who were holding Blacks For Trump 2020 signs behind the podium.
President Trump told supporters that he will follow through on his campaign promises to boost job creation, protect U.S. borders, prevent Islamic terrorist attacks and hold fake news media accountable.
“I’m here because I want to be among my friends and among the people,” Trump said. “I will always be with you. I promise you that. I want to be in a room filled with hard-working American patriots who love their country, who salute their flag and who pray for a better future.”
At one point, Trump called a man named Gene Huber on stage to thank him for his support. Hubber, who had arrived in line for the rally at 4 a.m., was interviewed on various news networks, where he explained that he supports President Trump because he’s doing what’s best for all Americans.
“We the people, our movement, is the reason why our president of the United States is standing in front of us today,” said Huber.
President Trump slammed the belligerent leftist mainstream media, which has repeatedly run fake news and propaganda in a bid to undermine him:
I also want to speak to you without the filter of the fake news. The dishonest media, which has published one false story after another …. they just don’t want to report the truth. They don’t get it. By they’re starting to get it. They are part of the corrupt system. When the media lies to people, I will never, ever let them get away with it.
Trump reiterated his promise to rebuild the military and “totally destroy ISIS.” “You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening in Sweden,” Trump said. They took in large numbers [of unvetted refugees] and they’re having problems like they never thought possible.
“You look at what’s happening in Brussels. Take a look at Nice. Take a look at Paris. They’ve allowed thousands and thousands of people into their countries and there was no way to vet those people. There was no documentation. So we’re going to keep our country safe.”
President Trump also discussed his plans to repeal and replace Obamacare, improve the economy and keep jobs in America. “We believe in two simple rules: Buy American and hire American,” he said.
The president ended his rally with a call for national unity. “Let us move past the differences party and find a new loyalty rooted deeply in our country,” Trump said.
“We are all brothers and all sisters. We share one home. One destiny and one glorious American flag. We are united together by history and by providence. We will make America strong again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And we will make America great again. Greater than ever before.”
