President-elect Donald Trump will offer a "rejection of ideological thinking" during his Inauguration Day speech on Friday, according to report previewing the historic address.
Sources from Trump's team tell Axios say that the meat of Trump's speech will reportedly "address the deep structural problems facing American society," while also rejecting ideological thinking.
"It's a rejection of ideological thinking. Ideological thinking is always looking at the world through a strictly dogmatic prism. It's having a set of beliefs that are uncompromising," a Trump source reportedly said.
The president-elect's address will be on the shorter side as far as inauguration speeches go. "More JFK length, than Clinton," according to the report.
Trump is also expected to harken back to a popular motif from his presidential campaign: putting America first. He will reiterate during his speech that "a nation and its people and its affairs are like a family and you need to take care of them."
The president-elect reportedly wrote the historic speech himself, a departure from how he handled pre-prepared speeches during his campaign. Trump also became well known for delivering extemporaneous speeches and going "off script" while campaigning for office.
The billionaire businessman tweeted an image of himself writing the inaugural address at Mar-a-Lago on Wednesday, which quickly turned into a meme after thousands of users shared parody versions of the photo.
