Donald Trump, speaking from a teleprompter during his campaign rally in Charlotte, North Carolina on Thursday, proclaimed he is the “change candidate” and admitted that because he isn’t politically correct, he doesn’t always use the right words.

“I’ve never been politically correct,” the Republican nominee explained. “Truthfully, it takes far too much time and can often make it more difficult to achieve total victory.”

He continued:

Sometimes, in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don’t choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. I have done that, and I regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain. Too much is at stake for us to be consumed with these issues.

But one thing I can promise you is this: I will always tell you the truth.

“So while sometimes I can be too honest, Hillary Clinton is the exact opposite: she never tells the truth. One lie after another, and getting worse each passing day,” Trump jabbed during his first campaign rally since Kellyanne Conway became his new campaign manager and Steve Bannon was named his campaign’s CEO.

Trump stressed that his administration would create a “new American Future.”

“We must also provide opportunities for all of our people,” he added. “We cannot make America great again if we leave any community behind.”

“Nearly four in ten African American children are living in poverty. I will not rest until children of every color in this country are fully included in the American dream,” Trump proclaimed.

“I am the change candidate,” he proclaimed, saying Hillary Clinton is the status-quo. “It is time to vote for a new American future.”
