A speech in search of a candidate

Good morning, my name is [TBD]. I’m here today to announce my candidacy for the Republican nomination for president of the United States.

After four years, we can no longer be under any illusions about Donald Trump’s character, competence, or values. Ignorant and indifferent to our history, and unappreciative of our laws and cultural legacy, Donald Trump has ripped at the fabric of our democratic culture. He cannot insult, bluster, lie, or tweet America to greatness; instead, he has left us divided and isolated.

It is time to make America Good Again.

I’m under no illusions about how difficult this task will be and I cannot promise you today that I will succeed in this campaign, but what I can promise is an alternative for Republicans of good will, members of the coalition of the decent, who want an alternative to the corruption and cruelty of this president.
