Donald Trump’s Thanksgiving Message: ‘Restore the Bonds of Trust Between Citizens’

November 25, 2016


President-elect Donald Trump has delivered his first Thanksgiving message, in which he urged the nation to work together after a bruising election campaign.

We are very blessed to call this nation our home and that’s what America is; it is our home.

It’s where we raise our families, care for a loved ones, look out for our neighbors and live out our dreams. It’s my prayer that on this Thanksgiving we begin to heal our divisions and move forward as one country, strengthened by shared purpose and very very common resolve.

In declaring this national holiday, President Lincoln called upon Americans to speak with one voice and one heart. That’s just what we have to do. We’ve just finished a long and bruising political campaign. Emotions are raw and tensions just don’t heal overnight; it doesn’t go quickly, unfortunately.

But we have before us the chance now to make history together. To bring real change to Washington, real safety to our cities and real prosperity to our communities, including our inner cities — so important to me and so important to our country.

    The Electoral Colllege votes Dec. 19.

    We the People do not elect a President.
    We the People have never elected a President.
    We the People cannot elect President — the Constitution does not permit us to do so.

    Suggest you learn how your government actually functions.
    Start with the Electoral College.

      when you talk i hear the theme for the show “THE TWILIGHT ZONE”. thats where you reside .You are a FREAK!!!!!.

        We called people like her a Space cadet .

  • Donnie Buchanan says:

    Even before he is sworn in, Trump is leading our nation and people are following. This is great since the only power that he has right now is the power of words.

    1. AKLady2015 says:

      Yes, he has already led an attack on the First Amendment right to free speech,

      1. Retired says:

        Prove it , as you would say.

        1. AKLady2015 says:

          His remarks to the cast of Hamilton.
          Those words were front page news.
          Where have you been?

  • YOLADANE says:

    We can be sooooo thankful for DONALD TRUMP and for being lucky enough to be AMERICANS. For those of you who do not like Trump, believe me you will change your opinion of him in time. He will be one of the GREATEST PRESIDENTS we ever had. He is POSITIVE and he believes in AMERICA and AMERICANS. ALL AMERICANS. Thank GOD we have a chance to be AMERICA again and not some 3rd world country.

      The saleman who tells people exactly what they want to hear —
      to make the sale. The salesman who has already shown his ignorance of the First Amendment.

      1. Retired says:

        The only one showing ignorance is you by not seeing the damage Obama did in Ill. and the US .

        1. AKLady2015 says:

          All you, and your ilk, ever have is accusations. You never provide a single, varifiable fact to support your claims.

          1. Retired says:

            BLM – riots. – burning – looting and Cop killing. Poor foreign relations. Sold out to Iran are all things you support.

          2. AKLady2015 says:

            You must be very young.
            All of the things you mentioned existed long before Obama was born, letalone elected..

            Oh, and no one “sold out to Iran”. An intellegent man avoided a war we could not afford, let lone win.

            Comprinise is not :”selling out” — never has been.

          3. Retired says:

            Seeing you are in love with the middle east people why don’t you go live there instead of polluting Alaska.

          4. AKLady2015 says:

            Seing how you hate everything America stands for, why don’t you find somewhere you like better and move there. Today would not be too soon.

          5. Retired says:

            You are the one promoting hate with your silly posts and supporting the Bad Apples in WDC. Learn what really goes on in the rats nest.

          6. AKLady2015 says:

            “Our country – In her intercourse with foreign nations may she always be in the right, and always successful, right or wrong.”
            Commodore Stephen Decatur, Jr. April 1816

        2. AKLady2015 says:

          Four hours and still not a single factual example.

          1. Retired says:

            I learned to evade the subject from people like you.

          2. AKLady2015 says:

            Blah, blah, blah, lie, insult …repeat ad nauseam.

  • Rodney Steward says:

    The best Thanksgiving message we’ve had in 8 years, and how good it feels to hear someone speak good of and show love for our country, instead of hearing some idiot saying, You Didn’t Build That!!!!

    1. AKLady2015 says:

      Obama said: “The point is … that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together.”

      1. Rodney Steward says:

        He was talking of blacks or muslims, it’s never been about the White man! He’s been this way since he’s been in office, BLM is proof of that!

        1. Retired says:

          He was from Chitcago where he learned that BLM garbage. That is why Ill. is one of the highest tax states to support the free loaders , almost as bad as Ca. and Ny.

          1. Rodney Steward says:

            He’s always against guns everywhere but in Chicago, the murder capital of the U.S., and why thugs make lousy Presidents!

          2. Retired says:

            Against Voter id laws also even though you need a voter id card in Ill. That is why Obamas are buying a house in Ca. so he can be president when they join Mexico. Time to put a fence around Ca..

          3. Rodney Steward says:

            I figure he’ll dump those made up kids and was going out there to live with the rest of the cross dressers and queers, then put a fence around the God forsaken place!

          4. Retired says:

            Like the rest of the Hollywood trash.

          5. AKLady2015 says:

            Yes, just like you.

          6. Retired says:

            You democrats follow Hollywood with your wacky beliefs of Satan.

          7. AKLady2015 says:

            I suspect you claim to be a Christian, probably attend church at least once a year.

          8. Rodney Steward says:

            Do you use a prayer rug, or what is it women are allowed to use, a diaper!

          9. AKLady2015 says:

            Thank you.
            Your input is always welcome
            It says so much about you.

          10. Rodney Steward says:

            Anytime, and yes it does tell a lot about me, but they’re NOT BORING!! 🙂

          11. Jo Ann Kowalski says:

            I always thought that they do not look anything of michele or obama. And this skank rosie odonell who adopted n her daughter ran away from her. And now picking on Barron Trump. This odonnell needs an ass kicking. Why doesn’t she go after chelsea she is not billys kid. Thank u again lol on the negan stick.

          12. Rodney Steward says:

            O’Donnell is a sorry, nasty POS, and can’t say one thing about anybody! Put that stick to her! 🙂

          13. Jo Ann Kowalski says:

            Mr. Rodney it seems this aklady does not like your comments. I wonder if she can look in a mirror and open her closet. Oops how many skeletons fell on her sorry immature ass lol

          14. Rodney Steward says:

            She doesn’t like many comments at all, and likes to fuss with everyone!! And she loves the muslim ways, always taking up for them! She’s eat up with stupid!!

          15. Jo Ann Kowalski says:

            Then she is in wrong country. We r suppose to respect.well this is my country our laws they put us down n she will get back from me what she deserves. No respect. Trump better hurry. Soon lock load and stand my ground.

          16. Rodney Steward says:

            I totally agree, this is OUR country, play by our rules, nut I look for something to happen soon, these muslim that Obama’s been letting in for 8 years have been to quiet and just may be waiting for about the time Trump gets sworn in!

          17. Jo Ann Kowalski says:

            I feel like u r a penpal. My husband is a 9/11 first responder very ill n back in NY we loved when the mosques were being watched. But now they have a communist deblasio hiding everyone n everything. I pray that Inauguration day goes peacefully. But these illegals need to go. Obummer has been sneaking in syrian refugees. I know we see them here in Florida.

          18. Rodney Steward says:

            That DeBlasio is a low life communist, and I can’t believ that someone in NY hadn’t took him out yet! And YES, the muslims are a very BIG problem in Florida, and when they strick this time it’ll be country wide, and they want to kill as many people as they can! It is coming, Obama don’t want to leave that big old house and his collection of prayer rugs!

          19. AKLady2015 says:

            Why do you use truth to tell lies?

            Every state requires proof of residence to register ot vote. Every state requires proof of citizenship to register to vote.

            Every state issues voter registration “dentification” cards. Those cards do not include a pciture and they are free.

            There only perpouse is to state you have registered to vote. They cannot be used as identification to cash a check or buy alcohol, etc..

          20. AKLady2015 says:

            Your state requires a voter identification.
            What is the your point?
            Every state issues ID cards to registered voters.

          21. Retired says:

            For someone intelligent and studied law you do not know what you are talking about.

          22. AKLady2015 says:

            One of your worst posts. Boring.

          23. Retired says:

            Yes your posts are extremely boring.

          24. Jo Ann Kowalski says:

            Do u type with one finger? U r an irritating bore.

          25. AKLady2015 says:

            Thank you.
            Your input is always welcome
            It says so much about you.

          26. AKLady2015 says:

            Why do you lie?

          27. AKLady2015 says:

            Let me know when you graduate Harvard law cum laude.

          28. Retired says:

            Just like you.

        2. AKLady2015 says:

          You are an ignorant, racist.

      2. Retired says:

        The only thing Obama succeeded in was bring thhhhe racial issue back. That is why you hide in Alaska instead of a city like Chitcago – NY -Philly- La.or Miami.

        1. AKLady2015 says:

          Whtes are out-numbered by nonwhites in Alaska. You would not do well here, nor would we want you to live here.
          I was born and raised in Miami. My parents were career military. I was military. I married career military. I have lived all over the U.S.m and many places around the world.
          It is people like you who keep the racial issue alive People such as yourself have never let it go, your remarks about Presidenr Pbama make that very, very clear.

          What we have, that you obviously have lost, is the knowledge that our neighbor may very well be our savior.

          1. Retired says:

            Born and raised in Miami explains why you are wacky.You are one of those that do not want to live in a Black community. You are the first so called career family that is anti republican , which proves your true color.

          2. AKLady2015 says:

            Please learn what the symbol ” – ” is used for.

          3. Retired says:

            What does that have to do with why you are goofed up.

  • Bert says:

    President – elect Trump in my opinion is one of the many reasons we can thank God Almighty for the privilege of living in the greatest country in the world. We live in a country where we can enjoy the God – given gifts of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”, and the rights enumerated in the Bill of Rights.
    I am thankful to God for all the blessings he has bestowed upon us as a nation.
    God Bless America! God Bless Donald Trump.

      Trump the saleman.

      The saleman who tells people exactly what they want to hear —
      to make the sale.

      The salesman who has already shown his ignorance of the First Amendment.

      1. Retired says:

        Now you are talking about Obama who sold the US out.

        1. AKLady2015 says:

          Who sold America out?

          Two Bush wars on the China bank credit card were not enought for you? The interest on that barrowing hugely increases the national debt — every month.

          The radioactive waste littering Iraq and Afghanistan — causing cancer and birth defects — is not enough for you?

          Thw thousands of Americans killed in two unecessary wars is not enough for you?

          The thousands of Americans wounded and/or crippled in two unecessary wars is not enough for you?

          Over 1 milllion dead innocent women, children, elderly in Iraq and Afghanistan is not enought for you?

          Over 2 million disabled innocent women, children, elderly in Iraq and Afghanistan is not enought for you?

          1. Retired says:

            The sell out of America started after WW2 with imports and after LBJ was elected. The Gov. controls on manufacturing- taxes and the gain in Union benefits caused American manufacturing to leave the US. All three created through Democrats.

          2. AKLady2015 says:

            The big, bad government — which the people elect.

            Unions — which again, the people elect.. They were around long before WW II.

            You cannot blame a political party, they represent ‘We the People”.


          3. Retired says:

            You spread enough manure for all the field in Nebraska for a year.

          4. AKLady2015 says:

            Seeing how much you hate America, maybe you should find somewhere you like better and move there. Today would not be too soon.

          5. Retired says:

            What does that have to do with the manure you spread, you bring up the Constitution and support people that want to destroy it. Do you have cement for Brain Cells. You are one bitter loser.

          6. AKLady2015 says:

            What I have is a Consitutional Law course.
            Something you seriously should complete.

  • Frank629 says:

    very presidential.

    1. ArcticGrayling says:

      I agree.

      However, the burden of restoring trust rests with what is largely a criminal element, and a violent one at that. I will feel that some level of trust has been restored when it is possible to visit places like Detroit, Camden, East St. Louis, Oakland, etc. without an inordinate fear of being mugged.

      Most of those doing the muggings are Hillary and Obama supporters.

    2. AKLady2015 says:

      Ha, ha ha, ha, ha ..

      The Trump attack on the First Amendment was pure ignroance. He would enact new restrictions on the First Amendment’s guaranteed freedom of the press. “We’re going to open up those libel laws,” Trump said in February. He has stated he would enact new restrictions on the First Amendment’s guaranteed freedom of the press.

      Trump v. Constitution.
      Trump v. ‘liberty’ and equal protection of the law.’

      Consider Trump’s meeting with Republican members of Congress, during which he expressed his admiration for Article 12 of the Constitution. Apparently is totally unaware that there are only seven Articles. The presidential oath of office demands that the president “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

      1. Retired says:

        He will not abuse the constitution the way Obama did.

        1. AKLady2015 says:

          He has not yet been elected and he is already abusing the Constitution.

          Obama did not make any more mistakes than any President who came before him.

          1. Retired says:

            You will continue to say he is not elected after he is sworn in.

          2. AKLady2015 says:

            The Electoral Collegw elects the Presideent.
            They meet Dec. 19.
            Maybe you should learn how your governmemt functions?
