介绍:
Like many of my fellow millenials ( 出生于1977年到1994年之间的千禧一代 ), I do not consider myself categorically ( 绝对地 ) Republican or Democrat. More than party affiliation(党派身份), I vote on based on what I believe is right, for my family and for my country. Sometimes it’s a tough choice. That is not the case this time. As the proud daughter of your nominee(被任命者 ), I am here to tell you that this is the moment and Donald Trump is the person to make America great again. Real change, the kind we have not seen in decades is only going to come from outside the system. And it’s only going to come from a man who’s spent his entire life doing what others said could not be done. My father is a fighter. When the primaries( 美国各州的初选 ) got tough and they were tough, he did what any great leader does. He dug deeper, worked harder, got better and became stronger. I have seen him fight for his family. I have seen him fight for his employees. I have seen him fight for his company. And now, I am seeing him fight for our country. It’s been the story of his life and more recently the spirit of his campaign. It’s also a prelude to(……的序幕) reaching the goal that unites us all. When this party and better still (甚至更好的话)this country knows what it is like to win again. If it’s possible to be famous and yet not really well done, that describes the father who raised me. In the same office in Trump Tower, where we now work together, I remember playing on the floor by my father’s desk, constructing miniature buildings with Legos and Erector sets, while he did the same with concrete steel and glass. My father taught my siblings(兄弟姊妹) and me the importance of positive values(正能量价值观) and a strong ethical compass(道德准则). He showed us how to be resilient(有弹性的,适应能力强), how to deal with challenges and how to strive for(力争) excellence in all that we do. He taught us that there’s nothing that we cannot accomplish, if we marry vision and passion with an enduring(持久的) work ethic(工作道德). One of my father’s greatest talents is the ability to see potential in people, before they see it in themselves. It was like that for us to growing up. He taught us that potential vanishes into nothing without effort. And like him, we each had a responsibility to work, not just for ourselves but for the betterment of the world around us. Over the years, on too many occasions to count, I saw my father tear stories out of the newspaper about people whom he had never met, who were facing some injustice(不公平) or hardship(困境). He’d write a note to his assistant, in a signature(用于签名的) black felt tip pen(水性笔), and request that the person be found and invited to Trump Tower to meet with him. He would talk to them and then draw upon(利用) his extensive network(广阔的人脉关系) to find them a job or get them a break. And they would leave his office, as people so often do after having been with Donald Trump, feeling that life could be great again. Throughout my entire life, I have witnessed his empathy(同理心) and generosity towards other, especially those who are suffering. It is just his way of being in your corner(给予支持鼓励) when you’re down. My father not only has the strength and ability necessary to be our next President, but also the kindness and compassion(同情心) that will enable him to be the leader that this country needs. My father has a sense of fairness that touches every conviction(坚定的信念) he’s hold. I worked along side of him for now more than a decade now at the Trump Organization and I’ve seen how he operates as a leader. Making important decisions that shape careers and that change lives. I’ve learned a lot about the world from walking construction jobs by his side. When run properly, construction sites(建筑工地) are true meritocracies(精英制度). Competence(工作能力) in the building trades is easy to spot(发现) and incompetence(无能) is impossible to hide. These sites are also incredible melting pots(大熔炉), gathering people from all walks of life( 来自社会的各个阶层 ; 各行各业) and uniting them to work towards a single mission. There have always been men of all background and ethnicities(种族) on my father’s job sites([建] 施工现场,工地). And long before it was common place(司空见惯的事), you also saw women. My father values talent(有才华的人). He recognizes real knowledge and skill when he finds it. He is color blind(色盲) and gender neutral(性别中立). He hires the best person for the job, period. Words and promises, no matter how visionary(梦想的) they sound will only get you so far. In our business, you’re not a builder, unless you’ve got a building to show for it, or in my father’s case, city skylines(城市天际线). Most people strive(努力、奋斗) their entire lives to achieve great success in a single industry. My father has succeeded in many on the highest level and on a global scale(全球范围). One of the reasons he has thrived as an entrepreneur(企业家) is because he listens to everyone. Billionaire executives(高管) don’t usually ask the people doing the work for their opinion of the work. My father is an exception(例外). TRUMP: On every one of his projects, you’ll see him talking to the super(临时雇员), the painter, the engineers, the electricians(电工), he’ll ask them for their feedback, if they think something should be done differently, or could be done better. When Donald Trump is in charge(负责), all that counts(真正有价值的)is ability, effort and excellence(杰出).
