Listening to Don Jr. early on in the campaign trail actually convinced me Donald Trump was the real deal as his son was so well informed and navigated sensitive subjects with a level of precision only a highly aware and politically astute nationalist could pull off.

I think he's quite likely more radically right than his father as his nationalist rhetoric is extra spicy.

His speech last night was no exception, I'd say it's well worth the listen.

My favorite quote: "If Hillary Clinton were elected, she'd be the first president who couldn't pass a basic background check."



Note, the Democrat propagandists at The Daily Show falsely accused him too of plagiarism because his speech contained two lines written elsewhere by one of his speech writers. Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz himself also appeared last night on Colbert's show to call Donald Trump a bunch of names. The establishment is desperate to derail Trump's candidacy by any means possible.

Thank you. Good evening, Iím Donald Trump, Jr.
(APPLAUSE)
Thank you. Thank you.
Iím the father of five young children, from 2-year-old Chloe to Kai who just turned 9. Iím the husband to Vanessa, an amazing wife and mother, and the son of a great man.
(APPLAUSE)
Iím an American. And tonight I want to talk to you about the country we live in, the country our children will grow up in.
TRUMP: For my generation, this is the most important election of our lifetime, one that will determine the future of our country and, in turn, the future of the world.
(APPLAUSE)
For too long, our country has ignored its problems, punting them down the road for future generations to deal with. In business, I was trained by my father to make the tough investments and decisions today to assure a brighter future tomorrow.
Weíve actually started to believe that solving our great problems is an impossible task, and thatís why we need to elect a man who has a track record of accomplishing the impossible.
(APPLAUSE)
For the first time, parents no longer think that their kids will be as well off as we were. Weíve lost the confidence in our leaders and the faith in our institutions. But remember one thing: Weíre still Americans, weíre still one country, and weíre going to get it all back. Weíre going to get it back better than ever before.
(APPLAUSE)
I know weíll get it back because I know my father. I know that when people tell him it canít be done that guarantees that he gets it done. I know that when someone tells him that something is impossible, thatís what triggers him into action.
When people told him it was impossible for a boy from Queens to go to Manhattan and take on developers in the big city, rather than give up he changed the skyline of New York.
(APPLAUSE)
Iíve seen it time and time again, that look in his eyes when someone says it canít be done. I saw that look a little over a year ago when he was told he couldnít possibly succeed in politics. Yes, he did.
(APPLAUSE)
For my father, impossible is just the starting point. Thatís how he approaches business projects, thatís how he approaches life, whether itís teaching his granddaughter how to swing a golf club, or tackling the toughest negotiations, heís always fully committed.
Thatís why the person who had never run for office before stood on the stage 11 months ago in this very arena with 16 professional politicians and this week that same man will stand before you as our partyís nominee for the president of the United States of America.
(APPLAUSE)
As a proud son and family member, it was one of the great honors of my life to be able to put him over the top in the delegate count earlier today.
(APPLAUSE)
His unrelenting determination is why heís going to become our next president and why I know that when my father says he can fix the country he means it.
(APPLAUSE)
You want to know what kind of president heíll be? Let me tell you how he ran his businesses, and I know because I was there with him by his side on job sites, in conference rooms from the time I could walk.
He didnít hide out behind some desk in an executive suite, he spent his career with regular Americans. He hung out with the guys on construction sites pouring concrete and hanging sheetrock. He listened to them and he valued their opinions as much and often more than the guys from Harvard and Wharton locked away in offices away from the real work.
Heís recognized the talent and the drive that all Americans have. Heís promoted people based on their character, their street smarts and their work ethic, not simply paper or credentials. To this day, many of the top executives in our company are individuals that started out in positions that were blue collar, but he saw something in them and he pushed them to succeed.
His true gift as a leader is that he sees the potential in people that they donít even see in themselvesÖ
(APPLAUSE)
Öthe potential that other executives would overlook because their resumes donít include the names of fancy colleges and degrees.
I know he values those workers and those qualities in people because those are the individuals he had my siblings and me work under when we started out. That he would trust his own childrenís formative years to these men and women says all you need to know about Donald Trump.
(APPLAUSE)
We didnít learn from MBAs, we learned from people who had doctorates in common sense.
(APPLAUSE)
Guys like Vinnie Stellio, who taught us how to drive heavy equipment, operate tractors and chainsaws, who worked his way through the ranks to become a trusted adviser of my father. Itís why weíre the only children of billionaires as comfortable in a D10 Caterpillar as we are in our own cars.
(APPLAUSE)
My father knew that those were the guys and gals that would teach us the dignity of hard work from a very young age. He knows that at that heart of the American dream is the idea that whoever we are, wherever weíre from we can get ahead, where everyone can prosper together.
(APPLAUSE)
The other party also tells us they believe in the American dream, they say we should worry about economic inequality and immobility. You know what? Theyíre right. But they donít tell you that it was their policies that caused the problem and it was their policies that have no accountability.
(APPLAUSE)
They gave us the worst immigration system in the world, one that imports immobility, one that drives down employment and wages for Hispanic Americans, for African Americans and for everyone, an immigration system that favors illegals over those trying to go through the process legally and, at times, even over law-abiding citizens.
It was Bernie Sanders himself who warned that a large tide of new workers keeps wages low and poverty high.
The other party gave us public schools that far too often fail our students, especially those who have no options. Growing up, my siblings and I we were truly fortunate to have choices and options that others donít have. We want all Americans to have those same opportunities.
(APPLAUSE)
Our schools used to be an elevator to the middle class, now theyíre stalled on the ground floor. Theyíre like Soviet-era department stores that are run for the benefit of the clerks and not the customers, for the teachers and the administrators and not the students. You know why other countries do better on K through 12? They let parents choose where to send their own children to school.
(APPLAUSE)
Thatís called competition. Itís called the free market. And itís what the other party fears. (APPLAUSE)
They fear it because theyíre more concerned about protecting the jobs of tenured teachers than serving the students in desperate need of a good education.
(APPLAUSE)
They want to run everything top-down from Washington. They tell us theyíre the experts and they know whatís best.
The other party gave us a regulatory state on steroids. Dodd- Frank was a thousand pages long and itís already spun off 22,000 pages in regulations.
(AUDIENCE JEERS)
Imagine trying to digest all that before you even open your doors for business. That doesnít help consumers. What it does is destroy small business in favor of big businesses who can afford the vast number of lawyers and accountants needed to comply. Dodd-Frank is consumer protection for billionaires.
Weíve produced the thickest network of patronage and influence of any country at any time in world history. Itís composed of a self- satisfied people at the top, our new aristocrats. We canít live that way any longer, itís too risky.
Let me talk a little bit about risks. The other party is the party of risk. Iíve spent time with many great Americans who have served this country in the military, and they know whatís at stake. When we have weak leaders in positions of power, Americans risking their lives for our freedoms are less safe.
You know, almost daily I get a call or a text from a real American hero. His name is Mark Geist and Iím proud to call him a friend.
(APPLAUSE)
Mark was part of the security team at the annex on our grounds at the consulate in Benghazi. Mark was one of the men who received frantic phone calls from his buddies at the compound, calls that pleaded for help, calls that he and his team tried to answer. But calls didnít save all his friends because Secretary Clintonís State Department had ignored their requests for help, both on the night in question and even in the weeks and months leading up to the attack.
(AUDIENCE JEERS)
It was a tragedy and one that would be repeated were she to win the election.
Ask Mark whoís fit to lead, who has the judgment to lead, who will take that call at 3:00 in the morning? Or better yet, ask yourselves, if you were in Markís shoes that night, who would you rather call?
AUDIENCE: Trump! Trump! Trump!
TRUMP: Let me tell you something about risk. If Hillary Clinton were elected, sheíd be the first president who couldnít pass a basic background check. Itís incredible.
(APPLAUSE)
Hillary Clinton is a risk Americans canít afford to take. She says sheíll issue executive orders to take away Americansí guns. She wants to appoint judges who will abolish the Second Amendment.
Just look at how effective those laws have been in inner-city Chicago, a city with the toughest gun laws in our nation, where 70 people were murdered last month alone and where over 3,400 American lives have been lost since this administration took office in 2009.
You know why those laws fail? Because criminals by definition donít follow laws.
(APPLAUSE)
Rather than prosecuting real criminals, she would strip hardworking, law-abiding citizens of their rights to protect themselves and their families.
Sheíll throw every possible obstacle in the path of safe, reliable, affordable energy produced in America, by Americans, for American businesses and families. Rather than being energy independent, our country will be forced to remain beholden to her buddies in the Middle East.
Those are risks we canít afford to take. And when we win, weíre not going to have to.
Thereís so much work to do. We will not accept the current state of our country because itís too hard to change. Thatís not the America I know. Weíre going to unleash the creative spirit and energy of all Americans. Weíre going to make our schools the best in the world for every single American of every single ethnicity and background.
(APPLAUSE)
Weíre going to put Americans first, all Americans, not a special class of crony elites at the top of the heap.
(APPLAUSE)
Weíre going to elect a president who will work with everyone to pass legislation that will make our country great again, a president who will give us a tax code that will free the American economy and end special loopholes for the wealthy, a president who will give us an immigration law that protects American citizens and gives them jobs, a president who will repeal and replace ďObamacareĒ without leaving our most vulnerable citizens without health care and who will do it without destroying Medicare for seniors, as Hillary Clinton has proposed.
(APPLAUSE)
A president who knows we canít simply delete our problems, but that we have to tackle them head on. A president who wonít allow PC culture to put the safety and well-being of our children and our loved ones at stake. A president who wonít bow and pander to nations that shudder at the very thought of Americaís existence. A president more concerned with the safety and comfort of his fellow Americans than the feelings of those hostile nations abroad who, if given the option, would wipe America off the face of this earth.
(APPLAUSE)
A president not beholden to special interests, foreign and domestic, and one who funded his entire primary run out of his own pocket just to prove it.
(APPLAUSE)
A president who will secure and defend the borders of the United States and who will appoint judges who believe that freedom requires a limited government. A president who wonít use the highest office in the land as a path to personal enrichment.
(APPLAUSE)
A president whoís actually created real jobs, who has actually signed the front of a paycheck, and who doesnít just talk about it in theory. A president who has real peopleís families and livelihoods dependent on his success and the success of his company for decades.
A president who speaks his mind, and not just when it behooves him to do so, who doesnít have to run a focus group or use data analytics to be able to form a simple opinion.
(APPLAUSE)
Who says what needs to be said and not just what you want to hear.
(APPLAUSE)
A president who will unleash the greatness in our nation and in all of us, who will give the hardworking men and women who have built this great country a voice once again.
(APPLAUSE)
That president can only be my mentor, my best friend, my father, Donald Trump.
(APPLAUSE)
And when we elect him, weíll have done all that. Weíll have made America great again, greater than ever before.
Thank you, and God bless.
(APPLAUSE)
