5 key points of the inaugural speech of Donald trump
Power to the people
“Today’s ceremony has a special significance, because today we do not just pass the power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we transfer the power from Washington D.C. and return it to you, people. <…> For this moment — your moment. It belongs to you. It belongs to all who came and all who watch us across America. This is your day. This is your holiday. These United States — your country”.
America — greatness
“Together we will get America back to strength, return America’s wealth back America’s pride, back in America safe. And so together we will get America back to greatness.”
“For many decades we subsidized foreign industry, not Americans, other countries, leading to the decline of the defense of our country. We protect the borders of other countries and forgot about. <…> We have enriched other countries, however, wealth, power, and confidence of our country crumbled and disappeared over the horizon. <…> This day will be a new strategy. From that day America will be first.”
The new rules
“We will implement two simple rules: buy American and hire Americans.”
Patriotism as a basis of policy
“We will strengthen all alliances and create new alliances. We will unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorists. We will destroy them, completely wipe off the face of the earth. Our policy is full loyalty to the United States. When you open the soul of patriotism is not prejudice.”
compared first appearance of the tramp with the inaugural speeches of his two predecessors, Democrat Barack Obama and Republican George Bush.
It trump, as befits the inaugural address did not contain specific figures, but this does not mean that the mentioned facts cannot be verified.
Trump: “Washington bloomed, but not shared with the people of their wealth. Flourished policies, but jobs cut and factories closed. <…> the wealth, power, and confidence of our country crumbled and disappeared over the horizon.”
In fact: loss of jobs is not fixed for a record 75 consecutive months, the unemployment rate in December was 4.7% — the lowest in the last nine years. From July to September 2016 the US economy has shown the fastest over the past two years, the growth of — 3.5%.
The reduction in the number of workers in factories is ongoing in the US since the 60’s. If then factories were occupied 34% of U.S. workers, by 2016, the number has reached 8% (12.3 million people). About 5 million workers have lost their places after the closure of industries in the early 2000s.
Trump: “We defend the borders of other countries and forgot about”
Actually: since 2001, the number of employees of the Border service of the USA grew more than two times and has about 20,000 people. The vast majority of them are serving along the border with Mexico.
Trump: “We will strengthen all alliances and create new ones.”
In fact: during the election campaign trump did not get tired to criticize the existing economic alliances. So, his criticism of the North American free trade agreement (NAFTA), designed to remove numerous trade barriers with Canada and Mexico. The protest trump also triggers agreement on the TRANS-Pacific partnership — a trade agreement between 12 countries in the Asia-Pacific region to reduce tariff barriers, however, has not held a ratification in Congress.
But most of the trump goes to NATO. So, the American President considers it “outdated” Union and during the election campaign repeatedly invited the Europeans to take care of their own security.
