Donald Trump is, in many ways, not your ordinary head of state, and his knack for grabbing attention is certainly one of the reasons why.
The boisterous billionaire has been a staple in the “luxury” lifestyle for decades after turning an nice headstart from his pops into one of the most recognizable names on the planet.
Oh, and then he became President. So there’s that.
On the way to the top, a phrase was coined that changed the political landscape of our nation irreversibly.
No, not nothing burger.
Make America Great Again.
You can’t even read those words without thinking of that iconic red hat with the white lettering. The iconoclastic Times New Roman font screams get it done in a way that demands you comply. That hat would have been a billion dollar scheme for anyone, but only Donald Trump saw that potential.
Now, as we forge into this new era of the citizen president, Donald Trump has uttered four more words that could become the mantra of our grand nation in the coming decade.
President Trump on Friday gave a triumphant, patriotic speech to 2018 graduates of the U.S. Naval Academy, promising to stand up for the U.S. without apology and hailing what he said was the re-emergence of American confidence since he took office.
“Our economy is the strongest it’s ever been and our country has regained the respect that we used to have long ago abroad,” he said in the commencement speech in Annapolis, Maryland. “Yes they’re respecting us again, yes America is back.”
Yes. America is back. And it’s thanks to the belief in We The People that Trump brought back to Washington D.C.
Yes. America is back. To work. To play. To their proud heritage.
And then, doubling down on the newly minted Naval graduates, the President had this to say:
“We are not going to apologize for America, we are going to stand up for America — no more apologies,” he said in his address to graduates. “We are going to stand up for our citizens, stand up for our values and stand up for our men and women in uniform.”
To which the hundred of young patriots in the room assuredly replied silently in their heads, “damn straight”.
