US Presidents have a knack for making quotes that become famous nd memorable – like philosopher-kings. John F. Kennedy told his people: Ask not what your country can do for you, but rather, what you can do for your country.
Below is what I think is Donald Trump’s most quotable quote that could be repeated by historians, journalists, politicians, philosophers and people round the world in years to come.
No nation can long thrive that loses faith in its own values, history, and heroes, for these are the very sources of our unity and our vitality. – President Donald Trump in his farewell message to Americans
President Kennedy made his own quotable quote at his inauguration, not at his farewell. Today Joe Biden will be inaugurated. He might make a most quotable quote at his inaugural speech.
Or like President Abraham Lincoln -with his Gettysburg Address quote on democracy- Biden might make one later in the course of his presidency. As Trump would say, let’s see what happens.
Welcome Biden, 46th President of the United States!
