“We Americans look at one another’s success with pride, not resentment, because we know, as more Americans work hard, take risks, and succeed, more people will prosper, our communities will benefit, and individuals lives will be improved and uplifted.”
“We won’t duck the tough issues, we will lead. We won’t blame others, we will take responsibility. We won’t replace our founding principles, we will reapply them.”
