Donald J. Trump Republican Nomination Acceptance Speech
July 18, 2016
Friends, delegates and fellow Americans: I humbly and gratefully accept your nomination for the presidency of the United States.
Who would have believed that when we started this journey on June 16th of last year we – and I say “we” because we are a team – would have received almost 14 million votes, the most in the history of the Republican Party, and that the Republican Party would get 60 percent more votes than it received four years ago.
The Democrats, on the other hand, received almost 20 percent fewer votes than they got eight years ago. 1
Together, we will lead our party back to the White House, and we will lead our country back to safety, prosperity, and peace. 2 3 4
We will be a country of generosity and warmth. But we will also be a country of law and order.
Our Convention occurs at a moment of crisis for our nation. The attacks on our police, and the terrorism in our cities, threaten our very way of life. Any politician who does not grasp this danger is not fit to lead our country. 5 6 7 8 9 [Read more…]

WASHINGTON – The Politik is predicting that on Tuesday, November 8, 2016, Donald J. Trump will win a landslide election, to become the 45th President of the United States.
2012 and 2016
In 2012, Barack Obama won reelection with 65.9 million votes. Mitt Romney finished 5 million votes behind, at 60.9 million. That earned Obama 332 electoral votes to Romney’s 206.
Just four years earlier, Obama had become the first African American ever to be elected president of the United States, winning the highest amount of votes (69.5 million) by any presidential candidate in history. Despite his historic nature and relative popularity, his margin of victory decreased from 2008. Consequently, Obama became the first incumbent in seven decades to get reelected with fewer electoral votes and a lower popular vote percentage.
Obama lost approximately 3.6 million votes from 2008 to 2012. Romney gained slightly on 2008 candidate John McCain’s 59.9 million. [Read more…]

Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump walked out to Queen’s “We are the Champions” at the Trump National Golf Club in Briarcliff Manor, New York on Tuesday to deliver his victory speech on the final night of the Republican primaries.
“Together we accomplished what nobody thought was absolutely possible,” Trump stated, reading from a teleprompter. “We’re only getting started and it’s going to be beautiful, remember that.”
“Tonight we close one chapter in history and we begin another. Our campaign received more primary votes than any GOP campaign in history,” the real estate mogul touted. “This is not a testament to me, but a testament to all the people who believed real change is possible.” [Read more…]
