President Donald Trump: ‘I will not let you down’

In his speech, Trump is gracious to the defeated Hillary, conciliatory and reaches out to those Americans who have not supported him. He is humble and thanks his family, staff, and politicians who’ve supported him, naming each one. Unlike Hillary, Trump thanks and acknowledges the Secret Service and NYC law enforcement who are tasked to protect him. He knows there’s much work to do, calls on us to help, and promises he will not let us down.

Here’s my transcription of President Elect Donald Trump’s victory speech:

“[To chants of ‘USA, USA’] Thank you. Thank you very much. Sorry to keep you waiting; complicated business. Thank you very much.

I’ve just received a call from Secretary Clinton. She congratulated us [Trump stretches out his arms to envelope the audience] on our victory. And I congratulated her and her family for a very, very hard-fought campaign, I mean she fought very hard. Hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time, and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to OUR country.

Now it’s time for Americans to bind the wounds of division, we have to get together. To all Republicans and Democrats and Independents across this nation, I say it is time for us to come together as one united people. It’s time.

I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be President for all Americans, and this is so important to me. For those who have chosen not to support me in the past, of which there were a few people, I’m reaching out to you, for your guidance and your help, so that we can work together and unify OUR great country.

As I’ve said from the beginning, ours was not a campaign, but rather an incredible and great movement, made up of millions of hardworking men and women who love their country and want a better, brighter future for themselves and for their family. It’s a movement comprised of Americans from all races, religions, backgrounds and beliefs, who want and expect our government TO SERVE THE PEOPLE, and serve the people it will. Working together, we will begin the urgent task of rebuilding our nation and renewing the American dream.

I’ve spent my entire life in business, looking at the untapped potential in projects and in people all over the world. That is now what I want to do for our country. Tremendous potential. I’ve got to know our country so well. Tremendous potential. It’s going to be a beautiful thing. Every single American who have the opportunity to realize his or her fullest potential. The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.

We are going to fix our inner cities, and rebuild our highways, bridges, tunnels, airports, schools, hospitals. We’re gonna rebuild our infrastructure, which will become, by the way, second to none. And we will put millions of people to work as we rebuild it.

We will also FINALLY take care of our great veterans. They’ve been so loyal, and I’ve gotten to know so many over this 18-month journey. The time I spent with them during this campaign has been among my greatest honors. Veterans are incredible people.

We will embark on a project of national growth and renewal. I will harness the creative talents of our people, and we will call upon the best and brightest to leverage their tremendous talents for the benefit of all.

We have a great economic plan: We will double our growth and have the strongest economy anywhere in the world. At the same time, we will get along with all other nations willing to get along with us. We’ll have great relationships, we expect to have great, great relationships.

No dream is too big, no challenge is too great. Nothing we want for our future is beyond our reach. America will no longer settle for anything less than the best. We must reclaim our country’s destiny, and dream big and bold and daring. We have to do that. We’re going to dream of things for our country, and beautiful things and successful things, once again.

I want to tell the world community that while we will always put America’s interests first, we will deal fairly with everyone, with everyone. With people and other nations, we will seek common ground not hostility, partnership not conflict.

And now I’d like to take this moment to thank some of the people who really helped with this — what they are calling tonight, ‘a very, very historic victory’.

[Trump then thanks his late parents, sisters, brothers, wife Melania, and his children Todd, Ivanka, Erik, Tiffany and Baron] “I love you and I thank you, and especially for putting up with all of those hours. This was TOUGH, this was tough, this political stuff is nasty and it’s tough. So I want to thank my family very much, they’re really fantastic. Thank you, all.”

[Trump then thanks his staff, naming each, for giving him “such incredible support”. He also thanks and names the politicians and military officers who’ve supported and endorsed him: former NY governor Rudy Giuliani, NJ governor Chris Christie, Sen. Jeff Sessions, Dr. Ben Carson, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, Gen. Mike Flynn, Gen. Keller (?), 200 generals and admirals, 22 Congressional Medal of Honor recipients, RNC chairman Reince Priebus, the Secret Service agents who protect Trump, and NYC law enforcement.]

It’s been what they call it a historic event. But to be really historic, we have to do a great job. And I promise you that I will not let you down — we will do a great job.

Thank you very much. I look forward to being your President. And hopefully at the end of two years, or three years, or four years, or maybe even eight years, you will say — so many of you worked so hard for this but — you will say that, you will say that that was something that you were really very proud to do [electing Trump]. And I can only say that while the campaign is over, our work on this movement is now really just beginning. We’re going to get to work immediately for the American people, and we’re going to be doing a job that hopefully you will be so proud of your President, you’ll be so proud.

Again, it’s my honor, it’s been an amazing evening, it’s been an amazing 2-year period, and I LOVE THIS COUNTRY.

Thank you. [Trump then turns to his right to greet and thank his VP Mike Pence.]”

Thank you, President Elect Donald Trump.

Thank you for giving your time, seemingly indefatigable energy, and many millions of dollars, and for enduring insults, false accusations and attempted attacks on your life in these many months of grueling and toxic campaign. You could have spent your remaining years enjoying your family and your billionaire wealth. But you chose not to because, like us, you love our country and you want to Make America Great Again.

May God bless you, and may God bless the United States of America.

    • Joseph . . . thank heavens we will not have to fear having her ever again be in a position of power over any part of this country. Although, I hope they convene a Special Prosecutor, and Grand Jury . . . perhaps the Old Witch could supervise the prison laundry detail, or the latrine cleaning detail . . .

    This election is the most significant since FDR’s ascension to the President. It means a PARADIGM SHIFT is under way. It means that—


    God Almighty has seen fit to grant America and the World a reprieve! This is a RESOUNDING UPSET that CANNOT be faked!

    Wow are 99% of my Uber passengers gonna be pissed! Hee! Hee! Hee! It also means that the Left, the most pernicious vermin on the American Scene, are DONE! This is no Nixon or Reagan victory. This is a Qualitative Change on the Graphs.

    • Steven . . . knowing you I know you can transcend the pissed 99% of your passengers. . . they lost, too bad, so sad! I would like to have you keep us abreast of what the 99% have to say about the situation. What is even better is that both the House and the Senate have been retained by Republicans . . . so perhaps we can see some headway in getting our country back on tract.

      It is interesting to note, although I was extremely unhappy by the fact that Romney lost the last election. His actions during this election showed us all first and foremost, he is for the elite and the moneyed members of our society. That was not a fact that was so apparent until just recently, which leads me to express my thankfulness that he was not elected POTUS back four years ago. I doubt that under his guidance, we would have had a chance to bring about the change that is necessary to correct the problems in our country.

      God Bless America!

    • Alma . . . I certainly agree with you . . . God heard the prayers of the faithful of this nation, and he brought about a miracle. I was fearful that with all the election tampering which no doubt went on, Our God cut right through the nonsense and gave us a Presidential choice who I feel can move us forward and restore our place in the world.

      I am so glad that those valiant men who died at Benghazi, as you have expressed . . . justice has been served. How awful it would have been if Killary would have assumed the POTUS, after the part she played in their deaths.

  4. Even though Obama and his tribe blamed Bush for all the maladies Obama has created, let’s write him off, let our actions be the ones that point the finger without speaking his name. Glad in January I won’t have to look at his face anymore. You are a disgrace and as so you will go down in history. God is above the Allah you worship.

    • Yeppers, BUT we can’t rest on our laurels: if Donald falls down on the job we’ll have to hold him to his promises. He’ll also face a nasty range of Democrat politicos who will stifle him every inch of his way. Believe it.

  10. Spoken like a true President. I would also bet Hillary’s little speech, ever it be so humble, was done in the hopes her rear isn’t prosecuted.
    America dodged a bullet last night. Now we begin the long path of healing. We all have a massive sized job to do in uniting. Those that refuse will hang themselves.
    Maybe we can now put Christmas back in the season, maybe can can take and put religion where it once was, and maybe we can rid our country of those wanting to harm her.

  11. I caught a few minutes on Fox this morning with the Judas chatter already about Trump granting blanket amnesty to Hillary and other establishment criminals, so the betrayal by Conservatism, Inc begins on day one, calling for a compromise with evil as a way of righting the straightforward wrongs against the American people–such as 911, the asset stripping of retirees and the middle class, and the transfer of our wealth straight into the hands of the banking elites. CNN and the Left, who were promoting intergroup hatred and racial violence in the streets just yesterday, now want “civility” and “cooperation,” a sort of coded language for enervating and neutering the Trump revolution by turning politics into an 18th century cotillion and blinding Trump to his people and mission with the pomp of office. Every compromise with the Left and the globalist faux Right embodied by Conservatism, Inc, leads straight back to business as usual on the Potomac and the end of the revolution before it even gets going. The Left-Right establishment doesn’t mean one word of what it’s saying and it’s way past time to try and convict them for their complicity in and the coverup of 911, war crimes, genocide, and the economic rape of the American people.

    Just for starters audit the Fed and jail the miscreants; open an independent 911 investigation; set up a new Nuremberg tribunal for war crimes against the people in Arab lands and the Ukraine; break apart the MSM into dozens of pieces like AT&T; and claw back the stolen wealth. Or will it all amount to the real crimes continuing undetected behind a smokescreen of token infrastructure and industry rebuilding?

      And YES! “…the Judas chatter already about Trump granting blanket amnesty to Hillary and other establishment criminals…” must be cut down ASAP before it enters weak minds and levels them even more, so do call in and write and do what it takes to stop this BS now!

  15. Thanks for the transcript!

    “Tremendous potential. I’ve got to know our country so well. Tremendous potential. It’s going to be a beautiful thing. Every single American who have the opportunity to realize his or her fullest potential.”

    In October 2015, a young man Trump fan, made a 2.5-min. video entitled “Tremendous Potential”:


  16. “And I promise you that I will not let you down…”

    And I “assembled” this very short “pre-election day” “ad” for all of us to not let Trump down on Election Day! 🙂

    The People Came Through! (in spite of horrendous non-stop last minute/days negative polls vs. Trump).

  17. I could never spit out these words Trump said as I would have to choke:

    “And I congratulated her and her family for a very, very hard-fought campaign, I mean she fought very hard. [AND VERY NASTILY & UNETHICALLY & CRIMINALLY!] Hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time [I SERIOUSLY DOUBT IT!], and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to OUR country.” [WHAT? Are you kidding me?]

    So, that’s why I don’t like politics. Why say stuff that IS NOT TRUE just to “be nice.” Blech. One of Trump’s sayings was, “What has SHE DONE in 30 years?” And now he says she’s done so much, worked so hard, blah blah. Sickening actually. He didn’t have to say ANYTHING about her, why compliment her? Just say, “She called me, conceded, she was nice, I accepted…” & then drop it. [Rant over.]


  18. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for transcribing President Trump’s speech. I watched and listened to him live give his speech, and I was so impressed because he did not look at notes, nor did he read from any other document, he looked at the crowds in front of him and wherever they were, and gave this extraordinary speech. It was very impressive.

  19. One thing for certain : President Trump CANNOT allow Paul Ryan, Rudy Giuliani or Chris Christie to have any active role in the administration OR transition team. Especially Paul Ryan who is apparently now a ‘mole’ for Obama and the Clintons.
