Why I Voted for Donald Trump

This is dedicated to all the incredulous people who feel entitled to an explanation. You want to know why I voted for Donald Trump?  THIS is why.

Following is the full text of President Trump’s remarks.

Today, I am very proud to welcome tens of thousands of families, students, and people of all faiths and backgrounds to our nation’s capital for the 46th annual March For Life.

This is a movement founded on love and grounded in the nobility and dignity of every human life.

When we look into the eyes of a newborn child we see the beauty in the human soul and the Majesty of God’s creation. We know that every life has meaning and that every life is worth protecting. As President, I will always defend the first right of our Declaration of Independence, the right to life. read more

Sarah Silverman hosts a weekly Hulu show titled, I Love America with Sarah Silverman. During her opening monologue on December 7, she described having an intense visceral reaction to watching an ex-boyfriend raise an American flag in his yard. It happened many years ago, but evidently she’s still thinking about it because she recalled feeling weird, scared and shaken at this seemingly simple act of patriotism. Having no idea why, she called her sister, Susie, who “knows shit” because she is a rabbi in Israel. Rabbi Susie explained, “Dude, nationalism is innately terrifying for Jews. Think about it. Flags. Marching. Blind allegiance. These things tend to ring a bell for us.” read more

In case you missed it, President Donald J. Trump addressed Muslim Leaders at the Arab Islamic American Summit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on May 21, 2017.

I want to thank King Salman for his extraordinary words, and the magnificent Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for hosting today’s summit. I am honored to be received by such gracious hosts. I have always heard about the splendor of your country and the kindness of your citizens, but words do not do justice to the grandeur of this remarkable place and the incredible hospitality you have shown us from the moment we arrived.

You also hosted me in the treasured home of King Abdulaziz, the founder of the Kingdom who united your great people. Working alongside another beloved leader – American President Franklin Roosevelt – King Abdulaziz began the enduring partnership between our two countries. King Salman: your father would be so proud to see that you are continuing his legacy – and just as he opened the first chapter in our partnership, today we begin a new chapter that will bring lasting benefits to our citizens. read more
