Donald Trump is now the Republican candidate in the 2016 general election. Trump accepted the nomination on Thursday night, the fourth and final night of the Republican National Convention. Trump spoke to a divided Republican Party, promising to fix everything that’s wrong in America.
The billionaire failed to go into detail about proposed policy changes he would make as president.
Trump received applause stating, “I am your voice,” while pointing to the television audience. The billionaire has tried to change his image as a fighter for America’s blue-collar workers. The Republican nominee promised to restore “law and order” in the country and casted himself as an alternative to Hillary Clinton.
“Hillary Clinton’s message is that things will never change. Never ever,” he said. Trump continued “my message is that things have to change, and they have to change right now.”
Trump’s speech may not have appealed to Republicans looking for insight into Trump’s policies, but it was one of Trump’s better speeches of his campaign. The billionaire talked about a dark America with “chaos in our communities and tourism on the homefront.” Crime was discussed as well as calling many of the country’s airports “third-world” airports.
The speech was Trump’s last attempt to unify a party that has been reluctant to endorse him. Texas Senator Ted Cruz, a former rival on the campaign trail, failed to endorse Trump on Wednesday night during his speech at the convention.
