Trump: “Our Independence Day is at Hand”
Besieged by an unprecedented outpouring of hate and sleaze by the Clinton campaign and its shameless allies in the media, Donald Trump asked his supporters Thursday to keep the faith. Speaking to thousands of loyal backers in West Palm Beach, FL, Trump said that this election was a “moment of reckoning” for the American people.
“This is not simply another four-year election,” Trump said. “This is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not we the people reclaim control over our government.
“Our Independence Day is at hand, and it arrives finally on Nov. 8.”
Throughout the rousing speech – one of the best Trump has delivered on the campaign trail thus far – the billionaire reminded his supporters that what was happening in the country was a reflection of what was occurring all over the Western world.
“Our great civilization, here in America and across the civilized world, has come upon a moment of reckoning,” he said. “We’ve seen it in the United Kingdom, where they voted to liberate themselves from global government and global trade deal, and global immigration deals that have destroyed their sovereignty and have destroyed many of those nations.”
Trump said that while the British were regaining control over their own destiny, global interests were determined to preserve the balance of power they’d secured in the United States.
“The central base of world political power is right here in America, and it is our corrupt political establishment that is the greatest power behind the efforts at radical globalization and the disenfranchisement of working people,” he said. “Their financial resources are virtually unlimited, their political resources are unlimited, their media resources are unmatched, and most importantly, the depths of their immorality is absolutely unlimited.”
On that front, Trump said that while he expected the election to be vicious, he could have never dreamed how low the Clinton machine would sink to keep American political power in the hands of the elite.
“I will not lie to you. These false attacks are absolutely hurtful,” he said. “To be lied about, to be slandered, to be smeared so publicly, and before your family that you love, is very painful. What is going on is egregious beyond any words – it’s reprehensible beyond description, it’s totally corrupt.”
But Trump said the personal misery was worth it, if it meant being the figurehead of an American movement towards true freedom.
“It’s about all of us together as a country,” he said. “It’s a movement the likes of which we have never in history in this country seen before, never in history. I take all of these slings and arrows gladly for you. I take them for our movement so that we can have our country back.”
