    • Together, we are building a SAFE, STRONG, and PROUD America.
    • We want every American to know the dignity of a hard day’s work; we want every child to be safe in their home at night, and we want every citizen to be proud of this land that we love.
    • Just as I promised the American People from this podium 11 months ago, we enacted the biggest tax cuts and reform in American history.
    • Our massive tax cuts provide tremendous relief for the Middle Class and small businesses.
    • Since we passed tax cuts, roughly 3 million workers have already gotten tax cut bonuses – many of them thousands of dollars per worker.
    • This is our New American Moment. There has never been a better time to start living the American dream.
