While dozens of media pundits deem President Trump’s inaugural address as “dark” or “dreadful,” Rev. Jesse Jackson had different ideas.
WPXI ran into Jackson on the street, in which — to the liberals’ surprise — he gave a big thumbs-up to new president’s inauguration speech, following up with the claim that the commander in chief has much work to do in order to unify the nation after a divisive presidential election.
“The speech was full of hope and inclusion and he reached out to cities in a way they’ve not been reached out to for a long time,” he said. “But with that must come a target, a timetable and a budget.”
Trump’s speech hit many of the populist chords he refined on the campaign trail, portraying Washington as full of elite insiders indifferent to the common man.
“That all changes, starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment: it belongs to you,” he said, before ticking off goals: “We will build new roads, and highways, and bridges, and airports, and tunnels, and railways all across our wonderful nation. We will get our people off of welfare and back to work, rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor. We will follow two simple rules: Buy American and hire American.”
Trump capped his speech with his famous phrase: “Together, we will make America great again.”
