NOTE Please note that the purpose of this conference call is ministerial engagement and education; it is not intended for the press.
Last year, I spoke at the Republican National Convention, and the words I spoke to the American people then still ring true today: "Democrats always blame America first."
Please see a special message from our sponsor.
I'll keep this short.
Last year, I spoke at the Republican National Convention, and the words I spoke to the American people then still ring true today:
"Democrats always blame America first."
…And they always put America last.
Well, Joe Biden and the Democrats are still blaming America first…and they're still putting America last.
You've seen him do it, and you've seen the Democrats in Congress let him get away with it. The most liberal president our country has ever seen has blamed Americans for the failed policies of the Left.
Because when I sat in the Oval Office for the last time as UN Ambassador, I made a promise to keep standing for America.
I renewed that promise last fall at the 2020 Republican National Convention.
And I promise you today, that I will never stop standing up for America.
This country was built on putting the American people first.
This country empowered a first generation Indian-American woman to become governor of South Carolina and United States Ambassador to the United Nations.
Because even on our worst day, we are blessed to live in America.
Which is exactly why I founded Stand For America PAC earlier this year. Our focus is on the must-win 2022 midterms and electing enough strong conservatives to win back both the House of Representatives and the Senate.
I've dedicated my life to putting America first.
That's what I did as South Carolina's governor, it's what I did protecting America on the national stage at the United Nations – and it's what I'm doing right now working to elect as many conservatives as possible to Congress in the 2022 midterm elections.
My team is already laying the groundwork for conservative victories in 2022 and supporting conservatives like Congresswoman Miller-Meeks (IA-02) and Congresswoman Letlow (LA-05), who understand what's at stake and who believe America is inherently good – just like you and I do.
Conservatives who know that the Democrats' far-left policies aren't just bad ideas, but undermine our basic freedoms and American values.
