Donald Trump, the Republican Nominee and his Sworn Discourse

Donald Trump has accepted the Republican nomination for US President. He offered himself as the powerful ally and declared “I’m with you, and I will fight for you, and I will win for you,”.

It was the pledge to cheer the Republicans and still skeptical voters; in his speech he proclaimed the crisis in the state “too staggering” to solve within the boundaries of traditional politics.

Trump focused on the increase of homicides in America’s 50 largest cities. His speech concentrated on the number of immigrants and no regard for security by the government for the people. Trump was introduced by his daughter Ivanka, and in her speech she also announced a child care policy proposal that the campaign had not mentioned before.

Despite the promises of “the truth, and nothing else” in his convention speech, it had been a mixture of misleading statistics and contradictory facts, including the perils facing police and US tax burden.

He accused Hillary Clinton and said that the level of “corruption has reached a level like never before”. He claimed that the legacy of Hillary Clinton was, “death, destruction, terrorism and weakness.” Donald Trump accused Obama of drawing a red line in Syria and claimed that he was the reason for the twofold rise of the national debt.
