Orlando Sentinel article.

________________________

Full speech (after oath):
"From the beginning, America has been a nation defined by its people. At our founding, it was the American people who rose up to defend our freedoms and win our independence. It is why our founders began our great constitution with three very simple words: we the people. Since that moment, each generation of Americans has taken its place in the defense of our freedom, our flag, and our nation under God. These are the achievements of the American spirit, the spirit of a people who fought and died to bring the blessings of liberty to all our people. Above all, to be American is to be an optimist, to believe that we can always do better, and that the best days of our great nation are still ahead of us. It's a priveledge to serve as the president of the United States, to stand here among so many great leaders of our past, and to work on behalf of the American people."

Orlando Sentinel article.

Of note:

The first part of his speech was a re-recording of the presidential oath of office. Then, with no small amount of his trademark talking with his hands, spoke about the spirit of the American people and the U.S. Constitution.
“Above all, to be American is to be an optimist — to believe that we can always do better — and that the best days of our great nation are still ahead of us,” Trump concludes. “It’s a privilege to serve as the President of the United States, to stand here among so many great leaders of our past, and to work on behalf of the American people.” His figure neither tweeted nor wore a “Make America Great Again” cap, but wears a dark suit and a diagonally striped tie.

The waiting area of the hall has also been enhanced with additional presidential memorabilia (Lyndon Johnson’s monogrammed boots, Gerald Ford’s ski poles, Thomas Jefferson’s pocket watch), a display of how the figures are made, an explanation of Walt Disney’s connection to presidents and two gowns that were worn by first ladies Betty Ford and Grace Coolidge.
Thank you! Will add to original post!

Sounds right. The kind of speech that works fine no matter which President delivers it. That's what the HoP should deliver from the current President. I also note that it sounds a bit like something Walt Disney would have said..."There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow".
