our country will be forgotten no longer everyone is listening to you now you came by the tens of millions to become part of historic movement the likes of which the world has never seen before at the center of this movement is a crucial conviction that a nation exists to serve its citizens americans want great schools for their children safe neighborhoods for their families and good jobs for themselves these are just and reasonable demands of righteous people and righteous public but for too many of our citizens different reality exists mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities rusted out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation an education system flush with cash but would leaves are young and beautiful students deprived of all knowledge

their pain is our pain their dreams are our dreams and their success will be our success we share one heart one home and one glorious destiny the oath of office i take today is an oath of allegiance to all americans for many decades weve enriched farm industry at expense of american industry subsidize the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military weve defended other nations borders while refusing to defend our own and spent trillions and trillions of dollars overseas while americas infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay weve made other countries rich while the wealth strength and confidence of our country has dissipated over the horizon one by one the factories shuttered and left our shores with not even thought about the millions and millions of american workers that were left behind the wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then re distributed all across the 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 every city in every foreign capital and in every hall of power from this day forward a new vision will govern
