Donald Trump wasted no time in slamming Mexico, China and Japan in a speech to announce the launch of his presidential campaign. Trump said Mexico isn’t our friend. They don’t send us good people. He said Mexicans are bringing “drugs, crime and rapists” across the borders. He said they are laughing at us.
Trump claimed the real US unemployment rate is anywhere between 18 -19 percent, possibly up to 21 percent.
He pivoted to ISIS and the Middles East saying, our enemies are getting stronger and stronger by the day and “we as a country are getting weaker.” He said our nuclear arsenal problems sends signals to Putin and others that says that is a nation that has no clue and “don’t know what they are doing.”
We have a disaster called “The Big Lie” — Obamacare. Costs are going up for people, up to 59% and “you have to get hit by a tractor to use it. The deductibles are so high. He talked about the $5 billion website and says he has people building his websites for $3.
Trump said politicians will not bring us to the Promised Land because they are beholden to lobbyists.
Donald Trump ended his fiery speech by announcing his presidency: “I am officially running for president of the United States, and we are going to make our country great again.”
