“You know in life, you work hard and leave God for the outcome. You do your best and trust God to bless your effort.
“I feel good. I feel healthy. I thank God. I feel strong, I thank God.
“In life, you win some and you lose some but life goes on.
“I want to thank everybody. I am sure a lot of people think that Comrade must be down. When God says you are not down, you are not down and I am not down,
“”I ask our people to have faith in our country,
“They cannot have another country. I have only one passport. I am not about to have any other passport.
This is our country. We must make it great. We must strengthen democracy, we must improve on it.
