Top quotes from Donald Trump on the final night of the Republican National Convention
Donald Trump emphatically accepted the nomination to become president from the Republican National Committee on Thursday evening.
He then delivered one of the longest speeches in political conventions history, touching on issues ranging from the economy, to healthcare, national security and, law and order.
Here are some of his more memorable moments from the speech:
Trump accepts the nomination:
"Thank you, thank you. Thank you very much.
Friends, delegates and fellow Americans: I humbly and gratefully accept your nomination for the presidency of the United States."
"The problems we face now – poverty and violence at home, war and destruction abroad – will last only as long as we continue relying on the same politicians who created them in the first place.
Tonight, I will share with you my plan for action for America. The most important difference between our plan and that of our opponents, is that our plan will put America First.
Americanism, not globalism, will be our credo. As long as we are led by politicians who will not put America First, then we can be assured that other nations will not treat America with respect. The respect that we deserve.
The American People will come first once again."
Time to crackdown on crime at home:
"The first task for our new Administration will be to liberate our citizens from the crime and terrorism and lawlessness that threatens our community. America was shocked to its core when our police officers in Dallas were so brutally executed. Immediately after Dallas, we have seen continued threats and violence against our law enforcement officials. Law officers have been shot or killed in recent days in Georgia, Missouri, Wisconsin, Kansas, Michigan and Tennessee.
On Sunday, more police were gunned down in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Three were killed, and three were very, very badly injured. An attack on law enforcement is an attack on all Americans.
I have a message to every last person threatening the peace on our streets and the safety of our police: when I take the oath of office next year, I will restore law and order to our country. Believe me. Believe me.
I will work with, and appoint, the best and brightest prosecutors and law enforcement officials to get the job properly done.
In this race for the White House, I am the Law And Order candidate."
Donald Trump on terrorism and national security
"To protect us from terrorism, we need to focus on three things. We must have the best, absolutely the best gathering of intelligence anywhere in the world. The best. We must abandon the failed policy of nation building and regime change that Hillary Clinton pushed in Iraq, in Libya, in Egypt and in Syria. Instead, we must work with all of our allies who share our goal of destroying ISIS and stamping out Islamic terrorism and doing it now, doing it quickly. We're going to win. We're going to win fast.
This includes working with our greatest ally in the region, the State of Israel.
Recently, I have said NATO is obsolete because it did not properly cover terror. And also that many of the member countries were not paying their fair share. As usual, the United States has been picking up the costs. Shortly thereafter, it was announced that NATO will be setting up a new program in order to combat terrorism. A true step in the right direction.
Lastly, and very importantly, we must immediately suspend immigration from any nation that has been compromised by terrorism until such time as proven vetting mechanisms have been put in place. We don't want them in our country."
Donald Trump is with you
"I am asking for your support tonight so I can be your champion in the White House. And I will be your champion.
My opponent asks her supporters to recite a three-word loyalty pledge. It reads: "I'm With Her". I choose to recite a different pledge.
My pledge reads: "I'M WITH YOU – THE AMERICAN PEOPLE."
I am your voice. So to every parent who dreams for their child, and every child who dreams for their future, I say these words to you tonight: I am With You, and I will fight for you, and I will win for you.
To all Americans tonight, in all of our cities and in all of our towns, I make this promise: We Will Make America Strong Again. We Will Make America Proud Again. We Will Make America Safe Again. And We Will Make America Great Again.
God bless you, and goodnight. I love you."
