President Donald Trump deliberately rejected suggestions from his assistants who begged to edit his inauguration speech, a political commentator has revealed to Yahoo News.
Armstrong Williams said on Friday that POTUS was advised by his team to allow them make corrections on his speech in order to give Americans and the world “a more unifying message.”
Surprisingly, the 70-year-old rejected their offer and insisted on going “Rambo”.
“Even his closest advisers felt that more should’ve been in the speech about bringing America together, about the opportunities that are available in America, also [about] the kind of country that President Obama leaves us,” Williams said.
“But Mr. Trump doesn’t necessarily share that sentiment.”
Mr. President’s first official speech aimed at exposing the current state of America’s economy, security, politics and administration.
Trump meant it from his heart when he said, “This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.”
In Williams’ understanding, the president’s decision to ignore a sugar-coated inauguration speech and use words that were “reflective of his personal views” shows how the new dispensation will fare in matters that demand courage and truth.
“While many people might write these remarks for him and ask him to say these things, the thing that people like about Trump is the fact that he’s authentic,” Williams added. “He’s not gonna say something he does not believe.”
Pope Francis, the 266th and current pope of the Roman Catholic Church, urged Mr. Trump to see the poor and less privileged members of our society as “a guiding force of his administration.”
In his goodwill message to POTUS, the 80-year-old Argentine said: “At a time when our human family is beset by grave humanitarian crises demanding farsighted and united political responses, I pray that your decisions will be guided by the rich spiritual and ethical values that have shaped the history of the American people and your nation’s commitment to the advancement of human dignity and freedom worldwide.”
According to a report from CruxNow, the pope [real names Jorge Mario Bergoglio] wrote a telegram containing 159 words for Donald Trump expressing hope that Mr. Trump be responsive to America’s highly challenging role as the leading world power.
Bergoglio said he wants Mr. President to remember that his “government will be measured above all by its concern for the poor, the outcast and those in need who, like Lazarus, stand before our door.
“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not in the gospel,” he said with regards to Trump’s earlier threats against illegal immigrants. “I am not going to get involved in that. I say only that this man is not Christian if he has said things like that.”
His inspiring words ended with good wishes for Trump and his family.
The spiritual leader also sent his “blessing of peace, concord and every material and spiritual prosperity” through telegram.
