Trump promises to restore law and order in U.S, slams Hillary's legacy

Cleveland, July 22 (ANI): Accepting the Republican presidential nomination at the party's national convention in Cleveland, Ohio, Donald Trump on Thursday promised to restore law and order in the United States and protect Americans from terrorism.

"Friends, delegates and fellow Americans: I humbly and gratefully accept your nomination for the presidency of the United States," Trump said on Thursday night.

Trump pressed that the crime and violence witnessed across America will soon come to an end.

"Many have witnessed this violence personally, some have even been its victims. I have a message for all of you: the crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon come to an end. Beginning on January 20th 2017, safety will be restored," Trump said in approximately 75-minute speech.

He also laid emphasis on 'moment of crisis for United States' which were born of a series of threats, from "illegal immigration" to violent crime to violence directed at law enforcement to transnational terrorism.

Taking a jibe at Hillary Clinton, he said that the former secretary of state's legacy was death, destruction and weakness.

"I am certain it is a decision that President Obama truly regrets. Her (Hillary) bad instincts and her bad judgment - something pointed out by Bernie Sanders - are what caused the disasters unfolding today," he said.

"Libya was cooperating. Egypt was peaceful. Iraq was seeing a reduction in violence. Iran was being choked by sanctions. Syria was under control. After four years of Hillary Clinton, what do we have? ISIS has spread across the region, and the world," he said.

Highlighting FBI Director's remarks on Hillary, that she was "extremely careless" and "negligent," in handling classified secrets, Trump said that these terms are minor compared to what she actually did.

People present in the convention were seen chanting USA! USA!, when Trump said that on the economy, he will outline reforms to add millions of new jobs and trillions in new wealth that can be used to rebuild America.

"The American People will come first once again. My plan will begin with safety at home - which means safe neighborhoods, secure borders, and protection from terrorism. There can be no prosperity without law and order," he added.

He said that he'll get Bernie Sanders voters numbering millions of Democrats.

Taking about protection from terrorism, he said, "We must have the best intelligence gathering operation in the world. We must abandon the failed policy of nation building and regime change that Hillary Clinton pushed in Iraq, Libya, Egypt and Syria."

"We must work with all of our allies who share our goal of destroying ISIS and stamping out Islamic terrorism and doing it now, doing it quickly, we're going to win, we're going to win fast, " he added.

Sticking to his previous comments on illegal immigrants, he said, "We are going to build a great border wall to stop illegal immigration, to stop the gangs and the violence, and to stop the drugs from pouring into our communities."

On the trade front, he said, "We are going to enforce all trade violations, including through the use of taxes and tariffs, against any country that cheats."

In this he pointed out stopping China's outrageous theft of intellectual property, along with their illegal product dumping, and their devastating currency manipulation.

"They are the greatest currency manipulators ever. Our horrible trade agreements with China and many others, will be totally renegotiated. That includes renegotiating NAFTA to get a much better deal for America - and we'll walk away if we don't get that kind of a deal. Our country is going to start building and making things again," he said.

In the end he concluded his speech, saying, "We Will Make America Strong Again. We Will Make America Proud Again.We Will Make America Safe Again. And We Will Make America Great Again." (ANI)
