Trump: I will totally obliterate the Deep State. By Darren Beattie.
Arguably, Trump delivered one of the strongest speeches of his life in that packed auditorium. He had pep in his step, he presented fresh, new policy ideas, and offered an optimistic outlook on the future with a sprinkling of righteous revenge.
There was so much good in the speech, but one line defined it all and will likely be “memed” for years to come…
“I am your retribution.”
Strong words, but not what set the crowd alight.
In 2016, Trump was largely unnoticed until he said in a debate that “the big problem that this country has is being politically correct”. That was a groundbreaking thing to say in public in 2015. The crowd went ballistic. Suddenly, a large percentage of the population became interested in him, and his campaign took off. The Trump phenomenon had arrived. Watch:
Now, Trump says: “I will totally obliterate the Deep State.” Again, listen to the huge surge of support from the crowd. This is what they wanted to hear. Watch, and compare to 2015:

Many worry that we can’t win an election after what transpired in 2020. But Trump boldly addressed that as well.
Charlie Kirk took to Twitter and captured the moment: My favorite part of the speech, and probably the most important: “Until we can eliminate ballot harvesting, we will become masters at ballot harvesting.” …
It was a speech for the ages and a defining moment in Trump’s political comeback. Also, it stood in stark contrast to the tired old “left-wing” identity politics being pushed by Nikki Haley. …
President Trump made it clear that the days of the GOP of freaks, neocons, and corrupt globalists is over— “we are never going back to the party of Paul Ryan, Karl Rove, and Jeb Bush”
