{BNN Online/CLEVELAND, U.S.} – U.S. Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump, in his speech in Cleveland, accepting the Republican nomination, vowed to tackle the threats that the country is facing.

According to reports, Trump said that by January 20 next year, if he is elected, crimes such as shootings by police, shootings at police and mass shootings by terrorists will end.

He said, “The crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon come to an end.”

He said that the crime rate had come down but the Obama administration has reversed it and that homicides increased last year in the country’s 50 biggest cities.

He said, “America was shocked to its core when our police officers in Dallas were so brutally executed. It is finally time for a straight-forward assessment of the state of this nation. I will present the facts plainly and honestly. We cannot be so politically correct anymore.”

He added that ISIS must be defeated. He said, “The damage and devastation that can be inflicted by Islamic radicals has been seen over and over: at the World Trade Centre, at an office party in San Bernardino, at the Boston Marathon, and a military recruiting centre in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Only weeks ago, in Orlando, Florida, 49 wonderful Americans were savagely murdered by an Islamic terrorist. This time, the terrorist targeted our LGBTQ community. No good. And we are going to stop it. As president I will do everything in my power to protect our LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology.”

Trump promised a new era in which America and the people of the country were put first.

On the economy, Trump said that he would outline reforms to add millions of jobs. He added that the reforms will boost the country’s revenue, lessen the tax burden on the middle class and simplify the tax system for everyone.

According to reports, on trade, he said he would renegotiate with North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). He said, “We will never, ever sign bad trade agreements. America first, again. America first! Instead, I will make individual deals with individual countries.”

He added, “I have made billions of dollars in business making deals. Now I’m going to make our country rich again… I am going to turn our bad trade agreements into great trade agreements.”

On immigration, Trump said that Hillary Clinton was not doing anything to help the people whose family members had been killed by illegal immigrants. He said, “It’s so sad to even be talking about it.”

He added, “We are going to build a great border wall to stop illegal immigration, to stop the gangs and the violence, and to stop the drugs from pouring into our communities.”

He went after Hillary Clinton and accused her of being corrupt. He said, “When a secretary of state illegally stores her emails on a private server, deletes 33,000 of them so the authorities can’t see her crime, puts our country at risk, lies about it in every different form and faces no consequence, I know that corruption has reached a level like never before in our country.”

He added, “Let’s defeat her in November.”
