RNC 2020: Is Kimberly Guilfoyle first-generation American? Internet slams 'wild insanity' of Trump Jr's partner
'I speak to you tonight as a mother, a former prosecutor, a Latina and a proud American,' Guilfoyle said at the beginning of her speech
On Monday, August 24, Kimberly Guilfoyle, a former Fox News regular and present girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr, endorsed POTUS in a ‘high energy’ speech. “I speak to you tonight as a mother, a former prosecutor, a Latina and a proud American,” she said at the beginning of her speech. She quickly added, “And yes, a proud supporter of Donald J Trump.”
She continued by saying, “He is the president who delivers for America. He built the greatest economy the world has ever known for the strivers, the working class, and middle class. As commander-in-chief, he always puts America first. President Trump is ‘the’ law and order president.” Guilfoyle added, “Now, presidential leadership is not guaranteed, it is a choice. Biden, Harris, and the rest of the socialists will fundamentally change this nation. They want open borders, closed schools, dangerous amnesty, and will selfishly send your jobs back to China while they get rich. They will defund, dismantle and destroy America's law enforcement. When you are in trouble and need police, don't count on the Democrats.”
Guilfoyle claimed to be a first-generation American. She said her mother is from Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, and her father, also an immigrant, came to the US in pursuit of the “American dream". Guilfoyle said that she felt it was her “duty to fight to protect that dream”. She went to say, “If you want to see the socialist Biden- Harris future for our country, just take a look at California. It is a place of immense wealth, immeasurable innovation and an immaculate environment. And the Democrats turned it into a land of discarded heroin needles in parks, riots in streets and blackouts in homes.”
“This election is the battle for the soul of America. Your choice is clear,” Guilfoyle said. On Trump ‘Making America Great Again’, she said that he wanted to restore the “beacon of light” which once shone on the country bright. She said, “When President Trump commanded the defeat of ISIS, took out al-Baghdadi and Soleimani and paved the way for peace in the middle east, that beacon started to glow. When he negotiated historic trade deals with Canada, Mexico, Japan and China, bringing back thousands of manufacturing jobs to America, that beacon shined bright once again for the world to see.”
She added, “America, President Trump believes in you. He emancipates and lifts you up to live your American dream. You have the ability to choose your life and determine your destiny. Don’t let the Democrats take you for granted, don’t let them step on you.” She urged voters to stand for a "president who is fearless, who believes in you, and who loves this country and will fight for her". She concluded the speech animatedly by declaring, “Ladies and gentleman, leader and fighters for the freedom and liberty of the American dream, the best is yet to come.”
Guilfoyle has been close to the Trump family and has been with them in many public events and campaign trails, as reported by Business Insider. The report states, Guilfoyle tested positive for Covid-19 after attending two Trump rallies in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Phoenix, Arizona, in July.
