The Inaugural Address

Issued on: January 20, 2017

REMARKS OF PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP--AS PREPARED FOR DELIVERY
INAUGURAL ADDRESS
FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2017
WASHINGTON, D.C.

As Prepared for Delivery-

Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, PresidentBush, President Obama, fellow Americans, and people of the world: thankyou.

We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effortto rebuild our country and to restore its promise for all of our people.

Together, we will determine the course of America and the world foryears to come.

We will face challenges. We will confront hardships. But we will get thejob done.

Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly andpeaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to President Obama andFirst Lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout thistransition. They have been magnificent.

Today's ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today weare not merely transferring power from one Administration to another, orfrom one party to another--but we are transferring power fromWashington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People.

For too long, a small group in our nation's Capital has reaped therewards of government while the people have borne the cost.

Washington flourished--but the people did not share in its wealth.

Politicians prospered--but the jobs left, and the factories closed.

The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.

Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have notbeen your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation's Capital,there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across ourland.

That all changes--starting right here, and right now, because thismoment is your moment: it belongs to you.

It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching allacross America.

This is your day. This is your celebration.

And this, the United States of America, is your country.

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, butwhether our government is controlled by the people.

January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became therulers of this nation again.

The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.

Everyone is listening to you now.

You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movementthe likes of which the world has never seen before.

At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction: that a nationexists to serve its citizens.

Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods fortheir families, and good jobs for themselves.

These are the just and reasonable demands of a righteous public.

But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists: Mothersand children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted-outfactories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation;an education system, flush with cash, but which leaves our young andbeautiful students deprived of knowledge; and the crime and gangs anddrugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so muchunrealized potential.

This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.

We are one nation--and their pain is our pain. Their dreams are ourdreams; and their success will be our success. We share one heart, onehome, and one glorious destiny.

The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to allAmericans.

For many decades, we've enriched foreign industry at the expense ofAmerican industry;

Subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very saddepletion of our military;

We've defended other nation's borders while refusing to defend our own;

And spent trillions of dollars overseas while America's infrastructurehas fallen into disrepair and decay.

We've made other countries rich while the wealth, strength, andconfidence of our country has disappeared over the horizon.

One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even athought about the millions upon millions of American workers leftbehind.

The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and thenredistributed across the entire world.

But that is the past. And now we are looking only to the future.

We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in everycity, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power.

From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land.

From this moment on, it's going to be America First.

Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs,will be made to benefit American workers and American families.

We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries makingour products, stealing our companies, and destroying our jobs.Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength.

I will fight for you with every breath in my body--and I will never,ever let you down.

America will start winning again, winning like never before.

We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We willbring back our wealth. And we will bring back our dreams.

We will build new roads, and highways, and bridges, and airports, andtunnels, and railways all across our wonderful nation.

We will get our people off of welfare and back to work--rebuilding ourcountry with American hands and American labor.

We will follow two simple rules: Buy American and Hire American.

We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world--butwe do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations toput their own interests first.

We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let itshine as an example for everyone to follow.

We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones--and unite thecivilized world against Radical Islamic Terrorism, which we willeradicate completely from the face of the Earth.

At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the UnitedStates of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we willrediscover our loyalty to each other.

When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.

The Bible tells us, "how good and pleasant it is when God's people livetogether in unity."

We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, butalways pursue solidarity.

When America is united, America is totally unstoppable.

There should be no fear--we are protected, and we will always beprotected.

We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and lawenforcement and, most importantly, we are protected by God.

Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger.

In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it isstriving.

We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and noaction--constantly complaining but never doing anything about it.

The time for empty talk is over.

Now arrives the hour of action.

Do not let anyone tell you it cannot be done. No challenge can match theheart and fight and spirit of America.

We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again.

We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteriesof space, to free the Earth from the miseries of disease, and to harnessthe energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow.

A new national pride will stir our souls, lift our sights, and heal ourdivisions.

It is time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget:that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same redblood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we allsalute the same great American Flag.

And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or thewindswept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, theyfill their heart with the same dreams, and they are infused with thebreath of life by the same almighty Creator.

So to all Americans, in every city near and far, small and large, frommountain to mountain, and from ocean to ocean, hear these words:

You will never be ignored again.

Your voice, your hopes, and your dreams, will define our Americandestiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide usalong the way.

Together, We Will Make America Strong Again.

We Will Make America Wealthy Again.

We Will Make America Proud Again.

We Will Make America Safe Again.

And, Yes, Together, We Will Make America Great Again. Thank you, GodBless You, And God Bless America.
