Donald Trump Thanksgiving Video Message: “It’s My Prayer We Heal Our Divisions”
Donald Trump shared a video message on Wednesday night in honor of Thanksgiving. Watch below.
The President-elect tweeted, “Let us give thanks for all that we have, and let us boldly face the exciting new frontiers that lie ahead. Happy Thanksgiving.” Accompanying the tweet was a nearly two-minute clip of Trump sitting in front of an American flag and staring directly into the camera as he delivered a short holiday address.
“We are very blessed to call this nation our home. And that’s what America is. It is our home,” he began. Trump went on to say, “It’s my prayer that on this Thanksgiving, we begin to heal our divisions and move forward as one country, strengthened by shared purpose and very, very common resolve.”
The future president continued by referencing President Lincoln “call[ing] upon Americans to speak with one voice and one heart.” Trump said, “That’s just what we have to do. We just finished a long and bruising political campaign. Emotions are raw and tensions don’t just heal overnight. It doesn’t go quickly, unfortunately.”
“But we have the chance now to make history together,” insisted the business mogul, going on to list some of his objectives. “But to succeed, we must enlist the effort of our entire nation. This historic political campaign is now over. But now begins a great national campaign to rebuild our country and restore the full promise of America for all of our people.”
Trump added, “I’m asking you to join me in this effort. It’s time to restore the bonds of trust between citizens. Because when America is unified, there is nothing beyond our reach.” Check out the full video below.
