Moments ago, a man who looks like President Trump delivered a concession speech, condemned the actions at the Capitol, distanced himself having anything to do with events of the day, and said his job now was to get ready for transitioning power to Biden.
I do not doubt the man in the video is President Trump, what struck me was how different his message was from the last time he spoke on the lawn outside the White House.
This is a tough article to write seeing as I am torn and not quite sure how to feel about this.
I appreciate the fight that Trump undertook, willingly, to try and restore American greatness and save the nation from the jaws of communism. However, at the end of the day, I fear we are closer to becoming a radically leftist (and ultimately a failed) state.
It would not be fair to say this was Trump’s fault, however, it was in response to his efforts to end globalism. The thing about globalism is that the coalition of billionaire leading the push for its implementation are VERY POWERFUL, and equally ruthless.
Trump did his best to do what he thought was right for the nation and I appreciate and respect that. I appreciate him shooting from the hip and speaking his mind. I appreciate him taking China on and challenging their quest for global domination. What I have a hard time with is this speech.

It’s not that I disagree with calls for peace and condemnation of violence, of course we condemn violence. It just feels to me like someone have a preverbal gun to his head, just off frame, and is feeding the words into the teleprompter.
What did I want him to say? I don’t know and I acknowledge that Trump is in a tough spot, however, this video just struck me as an attempt to save his own ass.
I support Present Trump, like all of us he is a flawed man, but he is the man in the arena and did the best he could. Unfortunately, it was just not enough to stop the establishment and get their vice grip off the necks of the American people.
