Trump's Gettysburg Address

President Donald Trump said Monday that he will deliver his convention speech accepting the Republican presidential nomination from either the site of the 1863 Battle of Gettysburg in Pennsylvania or the White House in Washington, DC.†-- CNN

Many, many years ago, and it was so many, back when America was greatóand I was the one who said Make America Great Again, and we willóall those amazing years ago, the founding founders said ďall men are created equal.Ē And thatís a beautiful phrase.

Now we are engaged in a great civil warópeople donít know that but itís true. And itís a test. And weíre here on this battlefield, where many men died, many amazing, beautiful men fighting to make America great again, like I said, and itís a test about the blacks. And no oneís done more for the blacks than I have. I donít get the credit, but that's fake news, fake news, I never get the credit. I created the greatest economy in history, stopped the China virus, beat the Russia Russia Russia hoax, but never credit from those reporters over there, you know the ones. And thatís why Iím here. Iím here to dedicate, and consecrate, and hallow this ground. Such brave, brave men who died here. Brave. And there were good people on both sides.†Will we remember what they did here? I don't know. I really don't know. I don't know. But everyone will remember what I said here.

And so we're living and they're not. But we should honor them by voting for me. Not mail-in ballots because that's fraud, but vote for me, so these beautiful dead, these corpses, these amazing, brilliant corpses, won't have died in vain. And that this nation, under God, the greatest God ever, the one, you know the one, will give us a new birth of freedomólike gun freedom that others are trying to take away from you. So grab your guns and your freedom and make sure government of me, and by me, and for me, won't perish from the earth. Thank you.
