Four years ago, we launched a great national effort to rebuild our country, to renew its spirit, and to restore the allegiance of this government to its citizens. In short, we embarked on a mission to make America great again — for all Americans.
As I conclude my term as the 45th President of the United States, I stand before you truly proud of what we have achieved together
President Trump’s 1776 Commission unveiled its highly-anticipated report on Monday. The White House hailed the report’s release with the following statement:
“1776 Commission—comprised of some of America’s most distinguished scholars and historians—has released a report presenting a definitive chronicle of the American founding, a powerful description of the effect the principles of the Declaration of Independence have had on this Nation’s history
On August 28, 1963, just a century after the Emancipation Proclamation, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led more than 200,000 Americans in a March on Washington in pursuit of jobs and freedom for all people. Standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, he called on Americans “to sit down together at the table of brotherhood” and meet our promise of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all.
On January 13, House Democrats voted to impeach President Donald Trump a second time. Never mind that President Trump will have left office by the time U.S. Senators even consider the proposal to remove him from office. House Democrats voted to impeach him anyway. The Democrats’ stated rationale follows, according to their own, latest Article of Impeachment.
On January 13, 2021, President Trump issued the following statement via press release: “In light of reports of more demonstrations, I urge that there must be NO violence, NO lawbreaking and NO vandalism of any kind. That is not what I stand for, and it is not what America stands for. I call on ALL Americans to help ease tensions and calm tempers.”
I’d like to begin by addressing the heinous attack on the United States Capitol. Like all Americans, I am outraged by the violence, lawlessness and mayhem.
I immediately deployed the National Guard and federal law enforcement to secure the building and expel the intruders. America is and must always be a nation of law and order.
To demonstrators who infiltrated the Capitol: you have defiled the seat of American democracy.
I am here to deliver this message on behalf of the entire White House. Let me be clear: The violence we saw yesterday at our nation’s Capitol was appalling, reprehensible, and antithetical to the American way. We condemn it — the President and this administration — in the strongest possible terms. It is unacceptable, and those that broke the law should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
While some families, especially those with financial means, have been able to mitigate school disruptions through in person options such as homeschooling, private schools, charter schools, and innovative models like microschools and “learning pods,” for many families, their children’s residentially assigned public school remains their only financially available option. Unfortunately, more than 50 percent of all public-school students in the United States began school remotely this fall. These children, including those with special needs, are being underserved due to the public education system’s failure to provide in-person learning options.
Students whose families pay tuition for their education are also facing significant hardships due to the economic disruptions caused by the pandemic.
A note from Fairfax GOP Chairman Steve Knotts: “Fellow Republicans, please take a moment to read this important update from Virginia GOP Chairman Richard L. Anderson, Republican National Committeewoman Patti Lyman and Republican National Committeeman Morton C. Blackwell. Virginia Republicans are fortunate to have such principled conservative leaders who forthrightly stand with President Donald J. Trump and his agenda for continued national greatness.”
As cases of election fraud continue to surface across the country, President Donald Trump and a growing number of Republican lawmakers are calling for a national election audit to protect the integrity of the vote.
“From 200,000 votes to less than 10,000 votes,” Trump tweeted this week, referencing an article from Arizona Central Politics that shows Biden’s lead in the state shrinking. “If we can audit the total votes cast, we will easily win Arizona also!”
