Donald Trump delivered a Thanksgiving message that should fill the hearts of every American, left or right. The president-elect called for all Americans to come together during this special holiday where we remember the many good gifts we’ve all enjoyed. He promised all Americans, even the ones who didn’t vote for him, that as president he would consider the needs and wants of all Americans, not just those who identify as GOP voters. This message struck just the right note and hopefully it’s an indicator that Trump really will work to heal our divisions, unlike his predecessor who has only deepened our divides.
We are very blessed to call this nation our home. And that is what America is: it is our home. It’s where we raise our families, care for our loved ones, look out for our neighbors, and live out our dreams.

It is my prayer, that on this Thanksgiving, we begin to heal our divisions and move forward as one country, strengthened by a shared purpose and very, very common resolve.
In declaring this national holiday, President Lincoln called upon Americans to speak with “one voice and one heart.” That’s just what we have to do.
We have just finished a long and bruising political campaign. Emotions are raw and tensions just don’t heal overnight. It doesn’t go quickly, unfortunately, but we have before us the chance now to make history together to bring real change to Washington, real safety to our cities, and real prosperity to our communities, including our inner cities. So important to me, and so important to our country. But to succeed, we must enlist the effort of our entire nation.
This historic political campaign is now over. Now begins a great national campaign to rebuild our country and to restore the full promise of America for all of our people.
I am asking you to join me in this effort. It is time to restore the bonds of trust between citizens. Because when America is unified, there is nothing beyond our reach, and I mean absolutely nothing.
Let us give thanks for all that we have, and let us boldly face the exciting new frontiers that lie ahead.
Thank you. God Bless You and God Bless America.Tags: Donald Trump
