Brent Bozell, a Trump supporter and longtime conservative activist who founded the Media Research Center, said he thinks Trump’s speech will win him more supporters because it will bolster his image and his brand.

“America has been looking for a president to stand up to the U.N.,” he said. “America is sick and tired of the international community lecturing us.”

Trump is known to veer off script, sometimes contradicting himself and what he stood for on the campaign trail. Not Tuesday, when he delivered the speech his supporters were looking for. “I was elected not to take power, but to give power to the American people where it belongs,” he said.

The speech was written, at least in part, by policy adviser Stephen Miller, who is responsible for some contentious policies, including implementing a ban on traveling to the United States from some Muslim-majority countries and ending the Obama-era program to protect young people known as Dreamers from deportation.

President Trump made his first visit s to the United Nations on Sept. 18. During his address, he pushed for reformation.
