On Tuesday night, President Trump held a rally in Phoenix, AZ and tried to heal the country’s wounds after the violence that occurred in Charlottesville earlier this month.
Trump reminded the crowd that he campaigned for the “forgotten men and women” and he jabbed Democrats, who he referred to as “obstructionists,” by insisting that they’re desperate to get their votes.
“We believe that every American has the right to live with dignity,” he said. “Respect for America demands respect for all of its people. Loyalty to our nation requires loyalty to each other. We all share the same home, the same dreams, and the same hopes for a better future.”
He then made a direct reference to the speech he gave last night at Fort Myer when he said “When a wound is inflicted upon one member of our community, it’s a wound inflicted upon us all.”
“When one part of America hurts, we all hurt,” he continued. “And when one American suffers an injustice, all of America suffers together. We are altogether.”
He told the country that “we are on the same team,” adding that what happened in Charlottesville “strikes at the core of America.”
