Trump to Kick Off 'Thank You Tour' in Ohio on Thursday

Donald Trump

But no one will be surprised. "I don't know if it will work or not". "... They forgot about the American worker". "We seek peace and harmony with the nations of the world, but that means recognizing the right of every country, including our own, to look after its citizens".

"America will start winning again - big league, we're going to win again", he said. The short repeating soundtrack including Trump's campaign anthem "You Can't Always Get Want You Want" by the Rolling Stones was the same.

"So I didn't know what came with this position, and I didn't know that they closed down the roads around the stadium for an hour and a half", he said, thanking the crowd "for being so patient".

Trump also confirmed reports that he would appoint retired Marine Gen. James Mattis as his defense secretary, joking that the news should stay in the room because he wasn't supposed to make the announcement until Monday.

The writer Lou Cannon described Ronald Reagan's presidency as "the role of a lifetime".

And perhaps more than anything else, Trump was having fun, reveling in being back as the rhetorical general of his grass roots army, riling his foes and commanding the spotlight surrounded by a worshipful crowd. Each delivers for the other. He stated that the support from the Buckeye state was instrumental in his victory.

Calling the results "remarkable", Husted said Trump "won by a margin of 450,000 votes in our state".

What a revenge against those who were so certain this could never happen, who now can only watch, helpless, as Mr. Trump and his enraptured supporters congratulate each other.

Parts of the speech - the parts he read on the Teleprompter - were inclusive, forgiving, a promise to unite, not divide.

In mocking detractors who did not think he could burst through the "blue wall" of states that have typically voted for Democrats, Trump proclaimed to roaring cheers, "We didn't break it, we shattered that sucker".

The tone was decidedly more boastful than his afternoon appearance in neighboring in, where he visited a company and claimed credit for saving American jobs. He won OH by almost nine percentage points over Clinton. Ten presidents won with slimmer margins.

Trump also blamed Obamacare for economic problems.

Before landing in Ohio, Mr Trump and Mike Pence, the vice president-elect will head to in to announce that Carrier, an air conditioning company in the state has chose to keep jobs previously bound for Mexico. He and vice president-elect Mike Pence are scheduled to make an appearance at 2 p.m. ET. At one point, Trump flatly promised that "things are going to be much better now".

During a almost hour-long speech in this southwestern OH city, Trump promised to deliver new tax cuts to the middle-class, roll back federal regulations that he said hurt companies and build a wall along the southwestern border with Mexico. Some of his most shocking rally comments came when he was confidently ahead or within striking distance of his opponents. It's all about the rallies.

Anyone who thought that Trump would preview a new, soberer, presidential version of himself just 50 days before he takes the oath of office was mistaken.
