The text for Donald Trump’s speech tonight has just been released by Politico (though of course the Donald may go off script).

It’s dark. Trump’s message is basically that America has turned into the bleakest bits of a “Mad Max” movie and only Trump can save us. 


BE AFRAID, Trump will tell the country: 

Our Convention occurs at a moment of crisis for our nation. The attacks on our police, and the terrorism in our cities, threaten our very way of life.

The speech is a long description of murder and mayhem, chaos and violence. Immigrants are coming to kills us. We have to stop being politically correct. And so on. But Trump does have one piece of good news: the arrival of Trump. 


I have a message for all of you: the crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon come to an end. Beginning on January 20th 2017, safety will be restored.

Read the whole thing here. It ain’t “Morning in America.”
