The focus of Donald Trump's speech in Philadelphia today was national security, and that's where he revealed his plan for massive changes to America's military.
According to a speech transcript on The Hill, Trump made a number of powerful statements and promised a huge military build-up. Here are a few highlights:
— DESTROY ISIS ASAP: "Immediately after taking office, I will ask my generals to present to me a plan within 30 days to defeat and destroy ISIS."
— NO APOLOGIZING FOR AMERICA: "Instead of an apology tour, I will proudly promote our system of government and our way of life as the best in the world — just like we did in our campaign against communism during the Cold War."
— UNQUESTIONED MILITARY STRENGTH: "History shows that when America is not prepared is when the danger is greatest. We want to deter, avoid and prevent conflict through our unquestioned military strength."
— PAY MORE FOR U.S. PROTECTION: "I will be respectfully asking countries such as Germany, Japan, South Korea and Saudi Arabia to pay more for the tremendous security we provide them."
— CONCLUSION: "We will make America strong again."
