Trump Makes an Aspirational Pivot

GOP nominee says nation filled with 'untapped potential waiting to be released'

Donald Trump took the opportunity during a massive campaign rally in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, Tuesday to remind voters of what they are voting for — and not just against — if they punch their ballot for the GOP ticket.

With just one week left until Election Day, the GOP nominee once unveiled an aspirational vision for the country’s future during a joint appearance with his running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence. Trump emphasized restoring American jobs by renegotiating trade deals, rebuilding the military, bringing jobs back to American workers, and returning to the ideals that have made the country great.

“If we stop believing in our failed politicians and start believing in ourselves, then anything — anything — is possible.”

“All I see everywhere I travel in this nation — and I’ve been everywhere — is untapped potential waiting to be realized,” Trump told the people. “If we unlock the potential of this country and its incredible people, no dream is outside of our reach.”

“If we stop believing in our failed politicians and start believing in ourselves, then anything — anything — is possible,” Trump said. “I’m asking you to dream big, to push for bold change, and to believe in a movement powered by our love for each other and our love for our country. That is how we will truly make America great again.”

Do you agree that protesting is acceptable, but rioting is not?

Trump turned the message to the choice facing voters on Nov. 8 between an Establishment that has failed the people and a movement of and for the people.

In order to “make America great again,” Trump asked the people to “declare our independence from the failed Establishment” and hold them accountable for the mess in which the country has languished.

“But to accomplish our goals, we must cut our ties with the small, bitter, petty politics of the past,” Trump said. “I’m not a politician. My only special interest is you, the American people. That’s why I’m running.”

“The guiding rule of the political class in Washington, D.C., is that they are looking out only for themselves,” Trump added. “They will say anything and do anything and cling to their power and prestige at your expense. I’m running to change and reverse decades of failure and to work with the American people to create generations of success. I’m running to restore our government and safety to our communities.”

In order to restore the government and to make American communities safe and prosperous, Trump outlined his plans to renegotiate bad trade deals, bring back manufacturing jobs — which he called the “backbone of the American middle class and our country as a whole,” provide parents with “their right” in choosing schools for their children, “totally eliminate Common Core and bring education local,” enact a 35-percent tax cut for middle-class Americans who “have not been respected,” rebuild both the military and the country, and bring “great prosperity into our economy.”

With a special emphasis on “repealing and replacing” Obamacare, both Trump and Pence condemned the health care “disaster” for its recently announced double-digit premium hikes.

“The president said if you like your plan you can keep your plan, if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor — which may go down as one of the great political lies of the century,” Trump said. “Insurers are leaving, premiums are soaring, doctors are quitting, companies are fleeing, and deductibles go through the roof.”

Saying that a Republican ticket from top to bottom was necessary to right the wrongs in America and set the country upon the right path once more, Trump urged the people to come out and vote and make their voices known in the most powerful way possible.

“If we don’t repeal and replace Obamacare, we will destroy American health care forever,” Trump said. “It’s one of the single most important reasons why we must win on Nov. 8.”
