“I want to first thank my team of dedicated lawyers and others for their tireless work upholding justice and defending truth.
“My deepest thanks as well to all of the United States Senators and
Members of Congress who stood proudly for the Constitution we all revere
and for the sacred legal principles at the heart of our country.
“Our cherished Constitutional Republic was founded on the impartial
rule of law, the indispensable safeguard for our liberties, our rights
and our freedoms.

America is given a free pass to denigrate the rule of law, defame law

tool of political vengeance, and persecute, blacklist, cancel and

“I also want to convey my gratitude to the millions of decent,
hardworking, law-abiding, God-and-Country loving citizens who have
bravely supported these important principles in these very difficult and
“Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make America Great
Again has only just begun. In the months ahead I have much to share
with you, and I look forward to continuing our incredible journey
together to achieve American greatness for all of our people. There has
never been anything like it!
“We have so much work ahead of us, and soon we will emerge with a vision for a bright, radiant, and limitless American future.
“Together there is nothing we cannot accomplish.
“We remain one People, one family, and one glorious nation under God,
and it’s our responsibility to preserve this magnificent inheritance
for our children and for generations of Americans to come.
“May God bless all of you, and may God forever bless the United States of America.”
~~President Donald John Trump
