‘This Moment Is Your Moment. It Belongs to You.’: President Trump Delivers Inaugural Address


After officially being sworn in, President Donald Trump delivered a very populist inauguration address, declaring to the American people, “This moment is your moment. It belongs to you.”

He thanked his predecessor Barack Obama and Michelle Obama for their “gracious aid throughout this transition.”

He touched on the big issues he wants to tackle in office, from bringing jobs back to America to securing the borders, before saying, “A new vision will govern our land. From this day forward, it’s only going to be America First.”

Trump also made some pretty strong calls for unity:

“We will discover our loyalty to each other. When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice. The Bible tells us how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity. We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity. When America is united, America is totally unstoppable.”

He said that no matter a person’s race or religion, “we all bleed the same color of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American flag.”

“You will never be ignored again,” the president declared. “Your voice, your hopes, and your dreams will define our American destiny, and your courage and goodness and love will guide us along the way.”

And Trump concluded by saying, one more time, that “together we will Make America Great Again.”
