President-elect Donald Trump sent a beautiful Thanksgiving day video to all Americans today.
His message should be clear from the outset. It’s about unity.
Above all else, Trump has promised to heal the cracks Barack Obama has managed to widen over these past eight years.
We are very blessed to call this nation our home, and that’s what America is – it is our home. It’s where we raise our families, care for our loved ones, look our for our neighbors, and live out our dreams.
It’s my prayer that on this Thanksgiving we begin to heal our divisions and move forward as one country strengthened by shared purpose, and very, very common resolve.
In declaring this national holiday, President Lincoln called upon Americans to speak with one voice and one heart. That’s just what we have to do.
We’ve just finished a long and bruising political campaign. Emotions are raw, and tensions just don’t heal overnight. It doesn’t go quickly, unfortunately.
But we have before us the chance now to make history together.To bring real change to Washington, real safety to our cities, and real prosperity to our communities, including our inner-cities – so important to me, and so important to our country. But to succeed, we must enlist the effort of our entire nation.
This historic political campaign is now over but now begins a great national campaign to rebuild our country and to restore the full promise of America for all of our people.
I’m asking you to join me in this effort.
It’s time to restore the bonds of trust between citizens, because when America is unified there is nothing beyond our reach – and I mean absolutely nothing.
Let us give thanks for all that we have, and let us boldly face the exciting new frontiers that lie ahead.
Thank you. God Bless you. And God Bless America.
Well said, Mr. President-elect.
