Donald Trump Jr. undoubtedly gave one of the best speeches at the RNC Convention so far on Tuesday night, and he received praise from the last people that you’d ever expect.
The first born of the Trump siblings took to the stage and delivered a powerful speech in which he painted his father as a man who takes on challenges “with a look in his eyes,” and sees “impossible” as his “starting point.” The 38-year-old father of five also addressed the lack of hope in our nation, and spoke of how we can bring back the American Dream for everyone, not just special interests.
“For the first time, parents no longer think that their kids will be as well off as we were. We’ve lost the confidence in our leaders and faith in our institutions,” he said. “But remember one thing: We are still Americans. We are still one country. And we are going to get it all back.”
Trump Jr. also noted how his father sees potential in leaders that “they don’t even see in themselves,” and that’s the kind of leadership we need for the country. he continued by blasting the Democrat Party and their policies, and even threw a couple shots at presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton.

Trump Jr.’s speech was so powerful that he earned heaps of praise from the last people you’d ever expect – the “Never Trump” crowd. Yeah, apparently they were so moved by what he had to say, they took to Twitter to let him know he did an awesome job, although it’s unlikely he was able to sway their votes.
Don Jr. speech more orthodox Republican than most anything his Dad has said over last year

Trump, Jr. should run for office. He sounds like someone I could vote for, unlike his father.

Is it just me or do you get the sense that DJT jr believes what he is saying more than his dad. He did a great job with his speech

He did deliver one hell of a speech, and it was a message that all Americans needs to hear. We can be a great nation again, but it’s going to take some big changes, and those changes start by electing Trump Jr.’s father in November.
