(Worthy News) - Donald Trump completed his takeover of the Republican Party on Thursday, claiming the presidential nomination, calling for unity within the party and holding himself out as the real agent of change all voters have been waiting for.
He called for a return to law and order and for a crackdown on illegal immigration, bemoaned an economy that has left minorities behind and a federal budget in shambles. “We cannot afford to be so politically correct anymore,” he said.
“I am your voice,” he said. “I have embraced crying mothers who have lost their children because our politicians put their personal agendas before the national good. I have no patience for injustice, no tolerance for government incompetence, no sympathy for leaders who fail their citizens.”
Nearly a year after he took to the stage in the first Republican primary debate, a question mark to some Republican voters and a horror for others, Mr. Trump returned to the same Quicken Loans Arena to deliver a valedictory address, having surmounted the largest and most impressive field of candidates in modern political history.
