Shortly after being sworn in, Trump delivered his inaugural address which was quite similar to his campaign speeches and was directed to his voter base.
The speech was strongly protectionist. It painted a picture of America as not one of the richest nations in the world but rather with cities wracked with drugs and crime. Mothers and children are living in poverty. Rusted out factories are scattered over the landscape . . . American carnage. That stops right here and right now, Trump said.
President Trump told his people that he will bring back your jobs, our wealth, our dreams and our borders. Addressing racism, he said “black, brown or white, we all bleed the red blood of patriots.” President Trump assured his listeners that he would never let them down.
President Trump said that he would seek to form new alliances in the civilized world against Islamic terrorism and claimed we will eradicate it from the face of the earth.
President Trump went on to take aim at the “swamp.” “For too long a small group have reaped the rewards of government. And people have borne the costs. That all stops right here, right now.”

Of course the President repeated his mantra that his administration will “Make America Great Again.”
