Donald Trump has been elected the 45th president of the United States of America with the promise to “Make America Great Again” defeating Hillary Clinton as the US Embassy in Lilongwe assures that the results will not in any way affect the relationship with Malawi.
US Embassy public affairs officer Edward Monster said there is no need for fear.
And speaking at a rally in New York after his victory was confirmed, monitored by Nyasa Times on Sky News, Trump pledged to be President of all American including those who did not back his bid for White House, saying it is “time for us to come together as one united people.”
“I just received a call from secretary Clinton. She congratulated us, it’s about us, on our victory, and I congratulated her and her family on a very very hard fought campaign. She fought it very well. Hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time, and we owe her a major debt of gratitude to our country,” Trump told the victory rally.
He said that now elections are over, it’s time for America “to bind the wounds of division” and come together as one united people.
“I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be president for all Americans, and this is so important for me,” said Trump who was flanked by his wife and children.
“For those who have chosen not to support me… I’m reaching out to you for your guidance and your help so that we can work together to unify our great country,” said Trump in a cool tone.
Trump said hisRepublican government will begin the “urgent task” of rebuilding United States.
“I’ve gotten to know our country so well. Tremendous potential… every single American will have the ability to realize his or her potential…
“We are going to fix our inner cities… we’re gonna rebuild our infrastructure, which will become by the way second to none. And we’re going to put millions of people to work as we rebuild it.
“We will finally take care of our great veterans.”
But Trump was also in his usual aggressive tone saying his administration will double US growth and have the strongest economy in the world.
“At the same time, we will get along with all other nations willing to get along with us. America will no longer settle for anything less than the best. We must reclaim our country’s destiny, and dream big, and bold and daring,” he said.
Trump added:“I want to tell the world community that while we will always put America’s interests first, we will deal fairly with everyone.”
The US President-elect thanked the secret service the NYC law enforcement, saying while the campaign is over, “our work on this movement is really only just beginning.”
He concluded:“We’re going to be doing a job that hopefully you’ll be so proud of your president. It’s been an amazing honor…
“And I love this country. Thank you. Thank you very much.”
The crowd chanted USA! USA!
