“In America, we do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example for everyone to watch. This week gives our country a special reason to take pride in that example. We are celebrating the 230th anniversary of our beloved Constitution — the oldest constitution still in use in the world today.
This timeless document has been the foundation of peace, prosperity, and freedom for the Americans and for countless millions around the globe whose own countries have found inspiration in its respect for human nature, human dignity, and the rule of law.”
—-President Trump, in his address to the United Nations, today.
Below is the whole speech.
Let’s guess how the pundits will attack it, as you know they will. Personally, I think it is exactly what the United Nations, and the world, needs to hear from the U.S., especially this part:
“The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented. From the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venezuela, wherever true socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish and devastation and failure. Those who preach the tenets of these discredited ideologies only contribute to the continued suffering of the people who live under these cruel systems.”
But my favorite line, which only the President could have inserted, was this:
“Major portions of the world are in conflict and some, in fact, are going to hell.”
The President owes me a keyboard for that one.
