Epic speech on national security in West Bend, WI 8/16/16)
This speech is absolutely amazing. Probably his absolute best speech to date, and certainly in the top 2 or 3 of his speeches to date.
Trump basically declares open war on the Establishment in this speech. He makes several explicit and astounding statements in this speech concerning the fact that the entire "Establishment" is opposed to his campaign -- including the Establishment media, big corporations and lobbyists, and top leaders in the Republican Party. Trump does a good job of emphasizing that he is seeking to "liberate" the American people from the tyranny of this oligarchy, and to finally represent the will of the American people and not the elite --ie, "the media-donor-political complex" as he terms it in the speech.
One of the more memorable lines from the speech is that he "wears the opposition [of the Establishment] as a badge of honor".
