Bloomberg: Trump paints dark portrait of fading nation only he can save
Donald Trump formally accepts republican nomination
Donald Trump gambled that Americans share his vision of a nation teetering on oblivion, casting himself as a renegade outsider who is the last, best hope to stand up to a discredited and depleted establishment.
"I am your voice," he told a cheering convention hall in Cleveland as he accepted the Republican presidential nomination. "I say these words to you tonight: I am with you, and I will fight for you, and I will win for you."
In a speech that warned of dangerous immigrants at home and unchecked terrorism in the world, Trump argued that his America-first vision and business savvy make him uniquely qualified to reverse the decline.
And he portrayed his opponent Hillary Clinton as a corrupt and self-serving charlatan embedded in an establishment whose fecklessness invited the nation’s enemies to test it.
“This is the legacy of Hillary Clinton: death, destruction, terrorism and weakness,” - Trump said.
“I have joined the political arena so that the powerful can no longer beat up on people who cannot defend themselves,” he said. “Nobody knows the system better than me -- which is why I alone can fix it.”
The speech, which lasted for 76 minutes, was unusual for Trump, who marshaled statistics and stuck closely to his prepared text. Unlike past speeches he read from the teleprompter, his delivery was confident and brash and the crowd responded enthusiastically.
