President Trump's First Address To The Nation

Tyler Durden's picture

US President Donald Trump made his first weekly address to the nation on Saturday, outlining the smorgasbord of actions he has taken in his first week...

As AP reports,

In it, Trump said he had met the leaders of some of the country's top manufacturing companies and labour unions and told them that he wanted to make things in America, using American workers.


He also said that he had signed orders to prepare for repealing and replacing Obamacare, and the withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership so that the US could negotiate one-on-one deals that protected American workers.


Trump said he had signed an order to begin construction of the Keystone and Dakota Access pipelines, following a renegotiation of terms requiring that pipelines installed in America be built with American steel and manufactured in the US.


He said he had also signed an order to immediately begin construction of the border wall with Mexico and to crack down on sanctuary cities.


Full Transcript:

"My fellow Americans, one week ago our administration assumed enormous responsibilities that you, the American people, have placed in us. There is much work to do in the days ahead but I wanted to give you an update on what we have accomplished already. In my first few days as your president, I have met with the leaders of some of our nation's top manufacturing companies and labour unions. My message was clear: we want to make things in America and we want to use American workers. Since my election, many companies have announced they are no longer moving jobs out of our country but are instead keeping and creating jobs right here in America. Every day, we are fulfilling the promise we made to the American people. Here are just a few of the executive actions I have taken in the last few days: An order to prepare for repealing and replacing Obamacare, it's about time; the withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership so that we can negotiate one-on-one deals that protect American workers, that would have been a disastrous deal for our workers; an order to begin construction of the Keystone and Dakota Access pipelines following a renegotiation of terms with the requirement that pipelines installed in America be built with American steel and manufactured here; a directive to expedite permits for new infrastructure and new manufacturing plants; an order to immediately begin the border wall and to crack down on sanctuary cities, they are not safe, we have got to take care of that horrible situation. This administration has hit the ground running at a record pace, everybody's talking about it, we're doing it with speed and we're doing it with intelligence and we will never ever stop fighting on behalf of the American people. God bless you and God bless America."

In 8 years Obassmo did fundamentally change and tear down the basic fabric of America!

Trump did more from election night to his inauguration, then obama did in all his 8 years.  ( and he wasnt even on the job yet)


SO HAPPY that the USA didnt go highschool this election.  Seems like most of america thought they were voting for homecoming queen since 2008, voting in the "cool kid".  You just cant expect to vote for the "cool cat" with "pretty teeth", who walks with a "swagger" and expect shit to get done... and obamee is proof of that!


THANK YOU TRUMP for being the man that you are and WORKING HARD for our nation!  Your hard work and perseverance will truly be the litmus test for all past and future presidents!

Keep going President Trump!

To HELL with the naysayers.

I just mistakenly switched on npr's "WAIT WAIT - DON'T CUCK ME!" in the car, and it was ALL bashing Trump.

These little douchebags would NEVER even come close to bashing Soetero......makes you wonder what type of "America" thesefuckholes want to see.

Make America Great Again Mr. President. MILLIONS of us have your back, and support you.

Isn't NPR still receiving Public funding ? They should put an end to that, too. They could call their last show , Wait, wait, don't fire me !

Sell Big Bird for the meat, feathers for pillows and the beak to Chinese for aphrodisiac. Sue Elmo for touching children.

Huge bucks.

Then pull the plug on the rest.

NPR foundation $s has destroyed all resemblance of a "public" broadcaster. 

NPR (unfortunately) has become pure snowflake propaganda.

Ban all foundation $s from public radio.

Any one who can contact Trump with some executive order suggestions please do so.

Let's hope they are just getting started, I would really like to see Common Sense make an unexpected comeback in the United States.

A Massive decline of funding for States and a decrease in Government employment and interference at every level. Crush the Commie Dept of Education .

I will send my full list to Santa and Trump.

It would be nice to see morality and decency make a comeback too.

Did more than any president in the last 50 years....i guess when you have a real job before doing into politics, you don't need a 50 day comittee before taking a shit

In reality, it's scary when you think that snowflake libtards don't get it.

Miffed Microbiologist's picture

Oh they get it. Why do you think they are having meltdowns like spoiled brat children? The day of reckoning is here.

The joke for them is they never had any real power and they should be thankful this isn't yet a bloody revolution.

Hopefully Albright keeps her promise and moves to Saudi Arabia.

I used to think she was smart. Evil but smart. Now I think she is senile. As is a certain supreme court justice.

Thanks for reinforcing my confidence in what he's doing.

I'm liking the weekly report - I hope he keeps that up. Only people willing to be held accountable do that. 

Though I guess it's been a thing for a long time:

How different from Obama: "we will create jobs for Americans by passing TPP"

flaminratzazz's picture

bypassing the msm and going straight to the people is THE BEST thing ever.. that one thing alone makes this man a great president.

BabaLooey's picture


Think about it.

You can get up, go to his Twitter acount, and see what he's thinking WITHOUT HAVING TO LISTEN TO SOME FUCKBALL ON THE IDIOT BOX/READ SOME ASSHAT DECIPHERING IT ON THE NET....or even worse...NOT KNOW/BE KEPT IN THE DARK.

Like motherfucking "transparent" Soetero......LOL...what a cunt/liar he was.

Being able to IMMEDIATELY see the President's thoughts is fan-fucking-tastic.

Eat shit you NWO Globalist slimeballs!

These fucking liberals need to taken out behind the woodshed in no uncertain terms.

David Brock, the seasoned liberal operative and Clinton loyalist who founded Media Matters, huddled with more than 100 donors last weekend at the swanky Turnberry Isle Resort in Aventura, Fla. to map out how Democrats will “kick Donald Trump’s ass.”

The Washington Free Beacon attended the retreat and obtained David Brock’s private and confidential memorandum from the meeting. The memo, “Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action,” outlines Brock’s four-year agenda to attack Trump and Republicans using Media Matters, American Bridge, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), and Shareblue.
