Johnson notes his campaign slogan — “Deliver, Unite, Defeat” — had an unfortunate acronym, so he adds an ‘E’ at the end for “energize.”

“I say to all the doubters — ‘Dude, we’re going to energize the country,” Johnson says, to an audible mix of cheers and ironic groans.

He promises a “new spirit of can-do,” and touts a number of domestic achievements he hopes to achieve.

“I will work flat-out from now on with my team that I will build,” he says. “The campaign is over and the work begins.”

And that’s it — Johnson leaves the stage after a brief speech to rapturous applause inside the hall.
