Posted May 08, 2019 06:08:16Donald Trump’s speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention was a speech that the Australian political establishment in general and his campaign in particular hoped would prove to be a turning point in the nation’s political history.
While the speech did not achieve the expected results, it did have the added benefit of inspiring the world to confront a certain kind of Australian politics.
For the most part, the US presidential candidate was able to focus his ire and vitriol on the United Kingdom, Canada, and Mexico.
He made no secret of his disdain for the European Union, arguing that it had done nothing for the country in the years since the end of World War II and that the countries were “the enemy of the people”.
But, as he began his speech, he made an implicit reference to Australia.
In the context of his speech about immigration, Trump’s focus was on the number of people from countries with large Muslim populations.
“Australia is not immune to the scourge of Islam,” he said, before referring to a particular form of Islam, that of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Australia’s Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, was quick to respond to Trump’s comments, calling on his fellow Australians to “stand up” against the Brotherhood and “stop the spread of its evil ideology” in the country.””
They’re the enemies of Australia.”
Australia’s Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, was quick to respond to Trump’s comments, calling on his fellow Australians to “stand up” against the Brotherhood and “stop the spread of its evil ideology” in the country.
“We are a nation that was founded by immigrants,” he told the audience.
“It’s no secret to us that this country has been in the throes of a refugee crisis for decades, and our own Prime Minister Turnbull has spoken of it as an urgent matter.”
I am proud to say we are a beacon of civilisation, a beacon for people from around the world.
“If we don’t stand up and fight against this evil ideology, Australia will not be a beacon.
It will be the enemy of humanity.”
The speech marked a dramatic turning point for Trump, who had previously made it clear that he would not attend the coronation of his father, former US President George W Bush, in 2019.
While he did not have a coronation party in the US, he did hold an event at the same time in the UK where he called on people to protest against the coronations.
The speech was also a key moment in the rise of Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, to a wider audience.
After his coronation speech in 2019, Trump was able by a combination of sheer will and sheer charisma to make it to the top of the polls, and to become the presumptive GOP presidential nominee.
But while he was able in the process to win the presidency, his success in the general election campaign was far from assured.
As a result, Australia has been left behind in terms of the number and type of candidates it has had on offer to lead its government.
In 2018, it was Malcolm Turnbull who was elected the next Australian president, but he was also unable to secure a majority of votes for a second term.
The only two candidates who received a majority were former Labor leader Scott Morrison and former Liberal leader Tim Fischer, who finished third and fourth respectively.
It is widely believed that the election result was largely due to the combined efforts of Turnbull and Fischer, and not Turnbull’s ability to attract support from Labor voters.
The result was also criticised for the timing of the result, as the election was held a week after the US election and two weeks after the election of Donald J Trump, as well as being only a week before the general elections in Australia.
While both of these factors could be argued to have contributed to the result in 2018, the fact remains that in 2020, Australia did not even get to a national election until two months later.
Trump was elected on November 9, 2020, and in the next election, the Liberal-National Party was set to become Australia’s third-largest political party.
The Liberal Party was also set to win a seat in the Australian parliament, which would allow it to be the largest party in a country with one of the highest levels of inequality in the world, and also the first party to achieve majority status.
As such, the 2020 election was seen by many as a resounding victory for the Liberal Party, with Trump, and Trump alone, being able to take Australia by storm.
While Trump had won the election in the United States, he was ultimately defeated in Australia, as Australia’s first-ever Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott was re-elected by a margin of almost a million votes.
Trump did not give up his quest to be Australia’s next president on January 9, 2021, and the next day, he announced his plans to run for the office himself.
Trump’s victory came as a shock to many in the political establishment.While
