‘When I took the oath of office, I swore to protect our country and its people. And that is what I will always do, so help me God.’

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Roger Kimball writes at Spectator USA,

Some politicians — hello, Nancy! — have said that a wall is ‘immoral.’ But President Trump was 100 percent correct in observing that those same politicians have built formidable walls around their own homes. Not, he observed, because they dislike the people outside the walls but because ‘they love the people on the inside. The only thing that is immoral,’ the President went on to say, ‘is the politicians who do nothing and continue to allow more innocent people to be so horribly victimized.’

Amen to that.

Like the action of the snicker-snee in The Mikado, this speech delivered a ‘short, sharp, shock.’ There was no name-calling, no histrionics. This was the President of the United States calling attention to a national emergency and inviting his colleagues across the aisle to put aside partisan point-scoring for a moment in order to accomplish something important for the commonweal.

I believe that the American people, even that subset that supports the President, do not appreciate what this man is attempting to do for the country. In brief, he is attempting to roll back the forces of barbarism and dissolution.

…I particularly admired the last thing that President Trump said. ‘When I took the oath of office, I swore to protect our country and its people. And that is what I will always do, so help me God.’
