In his inauguration speech, President Donald Trump managed to do something that former President Barack Obama never did very well.
He projected the focus of the speech not on himself, but on plans, hopes and dreams for what we the people can do.
Take a look at the full inauguration speech below:
According to the transcript, Donald Trump used the word “we” a stunning 45 times during his speech — that’s 15 times as many times as he referenced himself. For a man with a reputation among his critics for being colossally self-centered, that’s pretty impressive.
Even the times he referenced himself were not to praise himself, but to assure the American people that he was going to give his all to serve his country.
“The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans,” he said the first time he referenced himself.
The second and third times were back-to-back, but were even more poignant. “I will fight for you with every breath in my body — and I will never, ever let you down,” he said, according to the transcript.
