On Monday morning Republican presidential candidate nominee Donald Trump addressed a huge crowd at Liberty University. During his speech he pledged to protect Christianity and reaffirmed his focus on immigration and defense and his intention to build a wall on the border between the United States and Mexico.
“We’re going to protect Christianity,” Trump told the crowd. “Somehow we have to unify. We have to band together.” Trump continued to express his disdain for the current culture of political correctness and to point out that unlike other candidates in both the Republican and Democratic parties, he has funded his own campaign rather than relying on sponsors. Trump also mocked the politicians who have insisted that his proposal for a wall on the US-Mexico border to keep out undocumented immigrants is impossible.
“These politicians are all talk,” Trump insisted. “They don’t get it done. Of course you can build a wall − it’s simple – China.” Trump again repeated that he would force Mexico into funding the construction of the wall and that his many years of experience in the world of business would make it simple for him to do so.
Trump also took the time to take shots at some specific political rivals, particularly Democratic presidential candidate nominee frontrunner Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush, a fellow Republican whose campaign has failed to take off. Trump noted that Bush is a “low-energy person” and that while he has no objection to a female president, he objects to it being Clinton. He also said the current political leadership in the US is “very stupid”.
