Donald Trump isn't yet the 45th President of the United States, but he once again demonstrated his presidential side by addressing the American people for Thanksgiving.
Wednesday evening, the Presidential Transition Team released a new video of the president-elect in which he calls for people to set aside their differences and join together. He called on Americans to bring a shared resolve to make America great again for all people.
The complete speech:
We are very blessed to call this nation our home. And that is what America is: it is our home. It's where we raise our families, care for our loved ones, look out for our neighbors and live out our dreams.
It is my prayer that on this Thanksgiving we begin to heal our divisions and move forward as one country, strengthened by a shared purpose and very, very common resolve.
In declaring this national holiday, President Lincoln called upon Americans to speak with "one voice and one heart." That's just what we have to do.
We have just finished a long and bruising political campaign. Emotions are raw, and tensions just don't heal overnight. It doesn't go quickly, unfortunately, but we have before us the chance now to make history together to bring real change to Washington, real safety to our cities and real prosperity to our communities, including our inner cities. So important to me, and so important to our country. But to succeed, we must enlist the effort of our entire nation.
This historic political campaign is now over. Now begins a great national campaign to rebuild our country and to restore the full promise of America for all of our people.
I am asking you to join me in this effort. It is time to restore the bonds of trust between citizens. Because when America is unified, there is nothing beyond our reach, and I mean absolutely nothing.
Let us give thanks for all that we have, and let us boldly face the exciting new frontiers that lie ahead.
Thank you. God Bless You, and God Bless America.
