Donald Trump is expected to formally accept his nomination as the Republican presidential candidate on Thursday, July 21, at about 10:15 p.m. ET during the final night of the Republican National Convention. According to Politico, which obtained a transcript of the GOP nominee’s prepared remarks, the controversial businessman will discuss national security, present what he claims are the truths regarding immigration and the workforce and address the overall state of the country.

“I have a message for all of you: The crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon come to an end. Beginning on January 20, 2017, safety will be restored,” Trump will reportedly state in his speech.
Per Politico’s transcript, Trump will then claim that President Barack Obama “doubled our national debt to more than $19 trillion, and growing,” and that in 2009, "ISIS was not even on the map."
Also in the transcript, Trump summed up Hillary Clinton’s legacy as “death, destruction and weakness,” and shares his plan to — as his campaign slogan promises — "make America great again."
“The most important difference between our plan and that of our opponents, is that our plan will put America First,” the transcript reads. “Americanism, not globalism, will be our credo. As long as we are led by politicians who will not put America First, then we can be assured that other nations will not treat America with respect. This will all change in 2017.”
The former Apprentice host is expected to stress that he is “your voice” and that while Clinton’s slogan is “I’m With Her,” he will choose to recite a different pledge: "I’m With You — the American People.”
