President Donald Trump of the USA has a penchant for using Twitter to respond to news events like the Democratic National Convention in which Joe Biden accepted the nomination for Democratic Candidate for President, and there were a plethora of speakers including President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle.
But he did say in a speech that the DNC this year was the “darkest and angriest and gloomiest convention in American history” with the Democrats painting the US as “a racist country that must be redeemed” while Biden characterized it as a “season of American darkness”. Trump, on the other hand, considers it America’s “most successful period. “Where Joe Biden sees American darkness, I see American greatness,” said Trump.
Trump touted gains such as trade with China and the new trade agreements with Mexico and Canada, and peace progress in the Middle East, and work that has been done on developing Covid-19 vaccines ahead of schedule. He said that he has defended the second amendment on the right to bear arms for sport and self-defense. He has defended miners and oil-workers and other industrial workers in many key states. He has defended American borders and rooted out the gangs and drug cartels infesting them.
He explains his withdrawal from the Paris Climate Control Accord by saying it would have made it impossible for American companies to do business as usual.
Now the next step on the agenda for Donald Trump is the Republican National Convention which will be held next week. Trump is sure to come out on top and give a rousing acceptance speech.
According to some polls, Trump is getting 51% of the potential voters on his side. In any case, it is going to be a close race in November.
