Loving it so much today. Trump just keeps saying the things we want to hear. We live in the best country in the world. We all just want to enjoy life and feel safe. This or any place should not be tolerant to radical Islam. Get it out here!
Orlando Sentinel – Trump spent much of the speech talking about about how the polls and news media did not think he would win, going into detail about how he found out about each of his state victories on Nov. 8.
Trump said his voters were “great people, these are smart people, these are hardworking people. These are people who haven’t voted in a long time. But you know what? They saw, they heard … They came out, and [experts] had no clue what the hell happened.”
He also remarked on how the image of his rallies has changed.
“You were nasty and mean and vicious, and you wanted to win,” he said. “Now, the same crowd … You’re laid back and mellow and basking in the glory of victory.”
Trump also mentioned the attacks on Pulse nightclub in June, saying, “Let me keep this as clearly as I can: I am going to keep radical Islamic terrorists the hell out of our country.”
Pulse shooter Omar Mateen, however, was born in Queens.
Trump pledged once again to suspend immigration from regions where immigrants “cannot be safely processed” through “extreme vetting.”
The president-elect also promised less foreign interventions.
Instead of rebuilding foreign nations, it’s time to rebuild our nation,” Trump said. “For too long we’ve been moving from one reckless intervention to another. Countries you have never even heard of before. It’s reckless and it’s going to stop.”
His talk of foreign entanglements didn’t get a real cheer from the crowd, though, until he talked about Syrians – who he has said would no longer be allowed in the U.S. as refugees.
“We’re not having them come over here, we’re going to build safe zones in Syria,” he said. “And we’re going to get the Gulf states to pay for the safe zones.”
Trump also alluded to his previous comments about banning flag-burning, which has been criticized on First Amendment grounds.
