The Trump Speech That Could Reset The Conversation

We are in the midst of a fight over the founding of and meaning of the United States. Were I advising the President of the United States, I would argue he should not accept his Republican nomination from the south lawn of the White House. He should instead stand on Old North Bridge where the first shot of the revolution was fired or at Yorktown where the British surrendered their claim to our destiny. He should make this campaign about defending the goodness of America.

Over two hundred years ago, the founders of this nation pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to a cause greater than themselves. Now a group of radicals in and out of the Democratic Party and the media would redefine the very founding of this nation as something bad.

They riot in the streets demanding reparations, but those reparations were already paid in blood at Lexington, Concord, Antietam, and Gettysburg. Now we must meet the challenge of the future and the revisionists of the past to claim America is great because it is good and we must always be in pursuit of a better tomorrow.

I think, if the President did this, he gets a chance to reset the conversation and make it fully about the leftwing radicals rioting in the street. I talked about this on my radio show this morning.
