Anyone who has ever thought of Donald Trump thinks: “We’re gonna build a wall.”

Well guess what … Trump has finally stepped up his game.

On Aug. 19, inΒ Charlotte, N.C.,Β he delivered what could possibly be his best speech of the summer. By displaying his need to retool his presentation, he could possibly best Hillary …

…” Possibly” being the key word. Throughout his speech, Trump gave information about poverty, economics, and … empathy. Though he doesn’t quite say it, he expressesΒ it.

“I’ve been politically correct,” he says through applause, which makes him stand out. Even if sometimes he’s gone too far, it shows how much of a risk taker he is.

Later on, however, he says something that catches the crowd by surprise.

“One thing I can promise you is this, I will always tell you the truth,” he says. “I speak the truth for all of you and for everyone in this country who doesn’t have a voice.”

Once he grabs the crowd’s attention, he asks for something, that being the African-American vote. He goes on by saying he will help them in regard to poverty and economics, and furthers the line between him and Hillary Clinton by saying she sees “communities of color as votes, not as human beings,” an unfair but powerful accusation.

He points to the four of 10 children whoΒ dwell in poverty, and not just children, African-American children. He tells the crowd, “If African American voters gave me a chance, the outcome will be amazing.”

Just when you thought he was done, he says, “What do you have to lose by trying something new?” He continues: “I’ll fix it, just watch.”

But wait, there’s more. Trump did something completely out of character: He made this speech about us, not him.

“It’s not about me, it’s never been about me,” Trump said, though it’s not believable, but very appealing, “It’s about all the people in this country who don’t have a voice. I am running to be your voice.”

This got me thinking about the possibilities Trump could provide our country, and though I’m positive he doesn’t have my vote, this speech truly caught my eye, and many others’.

Could we be looking at a better Trump? Who knows …
