tv Americas Choice 2016 Super Tuesday 3 CNN March 15, 2016 7:00pm-8:01pm PDT
i said, well, in about two and a half weeks. yesterday we went up to youngstown, ohio, just amazing nominee this country. we will sometime, if i -- otherwise it's not going to happen, i have to be honest -- but apple and all of these great companies will be making their products in the united states, not in china, vietnam. and we're not going to be losing our companies pu. you know, our companies are leaving our country rapidly, whether it's carrier air conditioning, whether it's ford, eaton corp, they're leaving. frankly, i'm disgusted with it and i'm tired of seeing it and there's no reason for it. it's just gross incompetence at the highest level. we should not allow it to happen. pfizer, great company, pharmaceutical company, they're
going to ireland and there are so many more you have corporate inversions, people can't get their money back into the country because the politicians can't get along, they can't make a deal. everybody agrees democrat and republican, everybody agrees the money should come back. there's $2.5 trillion outside of this country. everybody agrees that the money should be here and the politicians forethr three years haven't been able to make a deal. and we could make a deal. there's an example of something that you could do if i sat down with a few of the senators, a few of the congressmen, you could make a deal on that in ten minutes if you knew what you're doing because everybody wants to do it. and companies are actually leaving our country to get their money, not only because our taxes are too high, which we're going o lowto lower, by the way companies are leaving our country in order to go and get
money because there's no way of bringing it in. we've got a lot way to go but i think at some point it's going to get done. this has been very exciting, this whole process. we started, i was one of 17 people, senators, governor, i've had such great support, dr. ben carson the other day endorsed us and -- great guy. wonderful man. and chris christie endorsed us. that was so incredible. [ applause ] and today pam bondi came up and endorsed us. she is a truly wonderful woman, the job she's done in florida is incredible. you know, so many -- we had such incredible support. all ryan called me the other day, tremendous call. i spoke with mitch mcconnell today. we had a great conversation. the fact is we have to bring our party together. we have to bring it together.
we have -- [ applause ] we have something happening that actually makes the republican party probably the biggest political story anywhere in the world. everybody's writing about it, all over europe, all over the world they're talking about it. millions of people are coming in to vote. this is an example of it today people looking at the polling booths all around the country where it's up, and the lines are four, five, six blocks long. and the woman -- one woman was in there for 40 years she's been working at the polls she said we'd have two people here, we'd have three people, now look at the line. and the line looked like it was really long. five deep and long. and it's just a different thing. we have a great opportunity. and the people that are voting are democrats are coming in, independents are coming in and very, very importantly, people that never voted before. it's an incredible thing.
[ applause ] i want to pay my respects, by the way, to todd palin, sarah's husband. she was making a speech on my behalf. fantastic, everyone loves her. what happened is he was in a very bad accident. he's tough as nails, he's going to be fine. i just want to pay my respects to todd and sarah. so our theme when we started and melania and i came down -- yeah, sit down, everybody,s me. this is mar-a-lago. we give you seats. you don't have to stand. i'm looking at all these people. corey, good job, corey. good job. and hope and our whole squad,
right? so when this began, melania and i, and i said got to do it. and she was so supportive and she's been so supportive, it's been amazing and we have to do it. we came down the escalator and it was about trade and it was about borders and what hppened is pretty quickly after that and we shot right up, i shot right to the top of the polls and i've been leading in the polls almost from the beginning without fail. we went up in june, most people said i'll never run, he's just going to have fun, he's having a good time. this isn't necessarily -- i am having a good time. up know, i'm having a very nice time butch time, but you know what, i'm working very hard. and there is great anger. believe me, there is great anger. one of the broadcasters was saying is there anger? i'm supposed to say, no, there's not, we love the way things are working, we love the deal you made with iran, it's wonderful,
egi you give them $150 billion, we get nothing, you lose $100 billion a year with china, we loss $58 billion a year in terms of imbalance. we don't make good deals anymore. we don't win anymore. as a country we don't win anymore and they asked is there anger from your people? and i said there is anger. they're not angry people but they want to see the country properly run. they want to see borders, they want to see good health care, they want to see things properly taken care of. they want our military rebuilt, our military is in a very bad state. they want it rebuilt. [ applause ] very, very importantly. and they want the second amendment, by the way, protected and protected strongly and that's going to happen. and you know what they want so badly, they want our veterans taken care of. our veterans are treated so badly. so we started and something
happened called paris. paris happened. and paris was a disaster. that was -- there have been many disasters. but it was paris and then we had a case in los angeles where it was in california where the 14 young people were killed and it just goes on and on and on. and what happened with me is this whole run took on a whole new meaning. not just borders, not just good trade deals, we're going to make the best trade deals you've ever seen. we've got such endorsements from carl icahn and the best business people. we're going to do so good with trade, do so good with the borders. we need protection in our country. all of a sudden the poll numbers
shot up. i'm just very proud to be a part of this. i think we're going to go and we're going to do a lot of trips over the next month. i think we're going to have a great victory and i think more importantly than anything else, we are going to start winning again. this country is going to start winning again. we don't win anymore. [ applause ] we don't win with our military, we can't beat isis. we're going to knock the hell out of them. we don't win at trade. china, everybody, japan, mexico, vietnam, india, name the country, anybody we deal -- anybody we do business with beats us. we don't win at trade, we're going to win at trade. we're going to make our country rich again, we're going to make our country great again. and we need the rich in order to make the country great, i'm
sorry to tell you. [ applause ] so i'm going forward, we had a fantastic evening. i would have never thought this could have happened. i guess we're waiting for one result, which possibly will be very successful also. but to win the states that we won and to win by the margins and especially, look, this is my second home, florida. to win by that kind of a number is incredible. [ applause ] and i have to -- and i have to say it, i have to say it, that, number one, i want to congratulate marco rubio on having run a really tough campaign. he's tough, he's smart and he's got a great future. he's got a great future. but i have to say and nobody has ever, ever in the history of politics received the kind of negative advertising that i have. record, record, record.
by the way, mostly false. i wouldn't say 100% but about 90%. mostly false, vicious, horrible. they say it was 18 million the first week, meaning last week and 25 million. it added up to over $40 million. and you explain it to me because i can't. my numbers went up. i don't understand it. nobody understands it. my numbers went up. [ applause ] i mean, it's been an interesting experience. last week adam scott at trump national doral, the big championship of golf. a lot of you folks saw that. i'm watching, we have television screens all over and we're down at this gorgeous green at doral
and then a commercial comes on the worst commercial and i'm saying look over there, you don't want to watch that, look, isn't that grass beautiful? look, don't watch. and they came in waves one after another after another and it was brutal. and then adam comes and he's it handsome kid from australia, one of the greatest golfers in the world made an unbelievable shot on the 18th hole to win the tournament, he's a great champion and we're giving him the award. and just before we break for a commercial, we'll be right back with our great championship from australia. and here as the commercial. i said, no! and it was two of them, two of them. oh, what a day that was. what a disaster. what a disaster. [ applause ] unbelievable.
[ cheers and applause ] so again, i just want to congratulate everybody. this is a really interesting process. it's an amazing process. it's very tough but it is a -- by the end, if you get to the end, you can handle a lot of things, including pressure. lies, deceit, viciousness, disgusting reporters, horrible people. some are nice. some are nice. some really disgusting people back there. and i just want to say we're going to go forward and we're going to win, but more importantly we're going to win for the country. we're going to win, win, win and we're not stopping. we're going to have great victories for our country. thank you very much, everybody. thank you, thank you. >> donald trump speaking tonight to lots of supporters. a small crowd of reporters i
think in a couple rows in the back, not take anything questions as he has in the past. but clearly celebrating what has been overwhelmingly a very important night for donald trump, jeffrey lord. >> when you're winning florida, north carolina and at this point i think he's ahead by a little bit in missouri, you know, other than winning ohio -- when you look at the map and you see that t tiny little dot that represents john kasich, i don't know where he goes from there. >> john kasich, what he has said all along, and i talked to him yesterday and he said winning ohio will change the media narrative, he'll get more interviews, people will be paying attention, they'll look at him differently. >> some of that's probably true. one there's something going on here in the country, when you look at this map of all of the
places that donald trump has carried, how different they are across america. and he's taking places that ted cruz should have carried. and he's winning in the northeast, and he's winning out west. i mean, this is amazing. >> listen, the republican establishment has been completely destroyed tonight. look at this. you literally have the only establishment candidate left is kasich with one state, his own state that he camped now the for two months. it doesn't make any sense. you cannot describe the devastation this guy has wreaked on the republican party. the republican establishment has been destroyed tonight and you now have ted cruz, the ultimate outsider, against trump. and those are the only options left that are viable. >> do you want to attempt to describe the devastation or -- >> i think it's written on my face. no question i've been saying for months now that the damage that trump has done to the republican party and conservative movement is already done, whether he wins
the nomination or not, and it's only going to get worse the farther he goes. what's fascinating about tonight, again, like michigan, he's winning in places that i think a lot of established republicans and election watchers never thought he could. lake county, illinois, where those very affluent suburbs of chicago are very well educated, very affluent, not supposed to win there and he is so far. so that's a model that if he repeats it in places say, like, orange county, california, westchester county, new york, where can't he win? >> you know about the pro hillary clinton super pac, the whole never trump movement, the super pacs that have been running commercials, does that go away? >> no. it continues because of john kasich. it continues because -- it doesn't give kasich a path to the nomination at all, but it
makes trump's path so very difficult. donald trump from here on needs to win 59% of all the delegates remaining in order to the win the nomination on the first ballot in cleveland. very, very difficult to do. nobody else can catch him. i'm from texas and -- >> gloria talked earlier about this rule of the republican party that says you have to win at least eight states to be the nominee and now these folks who are plotting say, well, we may waive that rule. donald trump, he could end tonight having won his 20th state. at some point how do you deny someone the nomination who has come close to getting 1,237 and has won all over the country expoe exponenti exponentially more than anybody else? >> that's the conversation that the republican party is having tonight?
what do we do? what's the best way to did it? do we put all our eggs in ted cruz's basket because we think he's the one we can be with? again, i have such a difficult time rallying around the man they have hated for the last few years. or do you just encourage kasich to stay in or do you -- and encourage cruz to stay in and that way they each get some delegates and by the time you go to the convention, it doesn't look lopsided. >> let's hold that question and go to another key race alert with wolf. >> let's do it the key race alert right now. three outstanding races, -- they're all pretty tight. a little more than half of the vote in in missouri. 52 delegates at stake. on the democratic side, bernie
sanders and hillary clinton, they're in a very tight battle right now. bernie sanders has 50.2%, hillary clinton 48.4. he's ahead by 3,700 volt,700 vo. hillary has 58.1%, bernie sanders 47.3% illinois. missouri, illinois, missouri on both sides. >> i was looking at the counties in the republican race. let's start there. this is a great tug of war between donald trump and ted cruz. trump with the lead at the moment. jackson county, the western part of the state just switched, it's
essentially a tie. it's significant because ted cruz is doing something tonight in missouri he has not had success doing in other states, which is contesting and in some cases at least running even in the suburbs. outside of caps city, ted cruz tied right now. it you come over to st. louis, this is where donald trump has to win to win this state and look at how close it is right now in is st. louis county, the immediate suburbs outside of the city. donald trump up a little bit. st. charles county, a swing county for republican, a very important county in statewide elections in november. donald trump with a very narrow lead. so this is where we're going to watch, in the st. louis area, still a lot of votes out. donald trump leading at the moment but the margins are pretty close. in ted cruz can keep the margins very close, probably needs to get closer than that. if he continues to fill in the rural areas, it will be good for him. the one caveat, you look in the
center of the state where cruz is winning, a lot of vote here in boone county but 100% of the vote in here. in some of these more conservative counties where cruz is winning, the votes are counted. down here in springfield, for example, 89% in green county. this is a very christian conservative area, cruz winning big. with you most of the votes are in. we're going to go down to the wire here in how cruz does, how close he can stay in the st. louis area. and you see up here, made this point earlier, trump is winning up here. this is a bad sign for cruz in the sense if you go back in time, mccain eked out a victory, splitting the vote with romney as we watched the two motor vehicle man race today. cruz needs to fill in these counties. >> if he could do that, that would be his only win on this night. let's take a look at missouri on the democratic side. >> to that point,
psychologically it's very important. winner gets 12, 5 delegates. they would sure like a which tonight for morale perpsurposes. bernie sanders, just shy of a two-point lead right now. it's filling in like a competitive primary would. for secretary clinton, you're happy. jackson county and suburbs of kansas city, she needs to win out here. she's leading by a pretty healthy margin with a lot of the votes still out. you come over here again in st. louis county and st. louis proper. this is where you have the african-american vote. not counted yet. if you're secretary clinton, you're going to get a boost out of here. but when you move out into the suburbs, senator sanders running pretty competitive here. you move out to the more
affluent county, senator sanders is ahead. a lot of the college towns, bernie sanders is ahead. >> illinois on the democratic side, still outstanding right now. 64% of the vote is in. she's got a slight lead over bernie sanders. >> when you're up almost two-thirds of the voice counted, you're saying what's out? you're looking in the middle of the state, springfield, expect this to go bernie sanders's way. then you want to come up here into chicago area. secretary clinton winning in chicago city by 8 points. still a decent chunk. it's a lorj population sen tr. she's got more votes if come in here. then you go out and look at cook county. 87% of the county is voted here. she's got votes to pick up here.
you can assume just looking at the map, these are ver small counties. they're tiny counties. let's go to the neighboring one and you see sanders is winning, you get about a 100-vote margin if you continue at this rate. if he continues to fill in the rural areas, a couple for sanders to pick up here. the major will be out to chicago and wet, out it depage county. can hillary clinton count win out here? and you move up to lake county, 9% of the vote in. that's an arm wrestle. >> very, very tight. going to have to do this the old fashioned way, wait for the votes to come in. three very competitive contests, nail biters, missouri on the democratic and republican side, illinois on the democratic side. we'll take a quick break. we'll be right back.
woman: it's been a journey to get where i am. and i didn't get here alone. there were people who listened along the way. people who gave me options. kept me on track. and through it all, my retirement never got left behind. so today, i'm prepared for anything we may want tomorrow to be. every someday needs a plan. let's talk about your old 401(k) today. testing, testing... 1, 2, 3, 4... ♪ ♪look out honey... ♪because i'm using technology...♪ ♪ ♪ain't got time to make no apologies...♪ ♪ ♪soul radiation in the dead of night...♪ ♪love in the middle of a fire fight...♪

cruz. 41.8% for trump, 41% for cruz. trump is ahead by 3,677 votes. plenty of outstanding votes remaining in missouri. a nail bite are ovr over there. on the democratic side, more than a third of votes are in, bernie sanders has a lead. he's ahead by 7,171 votes. 37% of the vote is in. still plenty of votes outstanding. in illinois, hillary clinton maintains a slight lead, 64% of the vote is in. hillary clinton has 51.7%, bernie sanders 47.4%. there are still plenty of vote outstanding in illinois right now. those are the outstanding contests we're watching. let's go to jake.
>> let's take a step back and talk about the big news from tonight and also look at where the candidates are in terms of states. first of all, we have these two outstanding dates for the democrats. we don't know where going to look at. the republicans states, so far they've had 27 contests. we're still waiting for the results of missouri. of those 27, donald trump has won 18. that's donald trump in the maroon. ted cruz has won 7, john kasich has won 1. and then you can give minnesota to marco rubio, although he dropped out of the race. we're not counting territories or the district of columbia. that is dominant. on the democratic side, of the 24 states that have had contests, hillary clinton has won 15, bernie sanders has won nine. there are some stories that have emerged from the evening, not a
great night for bernie sanders, marco rubio drops out, john kasich lives to fight another day but have i to say the big story is the complete and total dominance of donald trump. >> absolutely. unfortunately for him there are still other people in the race who are going to give him a run for his money and make it hard for him to win the delegates before the convention. it's not impossible but it's going to be hard. on the democratic side it, has been a mixed bag so far. hillary clinton so far has had a really, really good night. in looking at the outstand being ra -- outstanding race -- missouri it was maybe expected to be this close but illinois, it was the state that she grew up in and it was the state that understandably she got beaten pretty handily by the then home
state senator barack obama last time around, but they were getting a little nervous. i think genuinely so inside the clinton campaign that illinois was going to be a bit of a blowout and she's holding her own so far. >> and clinton people were very worried when i saw them in ohio, clinton people expressed concern that this would be a bad night for them, no matter how illinois and missouri fall. she's won three contests including ohio. but donald trump, let's talk about him for a second. this tr there were six contests on the republican side. of the five called so far, donald trump's won four. he won the northern mariana islands this morning. that was the eighth contrast where donald trump won not just a plurality but a majority.
the other interesting point about donald trump's wins tonight is that this is after the first real significant attempt with real dollars to try to tear him down. we saw it in the past few contests, the past few weeks, but nothing hike the money that was spent in florida and then in recent days more in missouri and illinois. with real substantive ads going after him with the ad now i guess the instantly infamous ad with female actors reading the words of donald trump about women. >> crude words. >> exactly. on and on. it didn't seem to work. >> not to mention, there's a police report against his campaign manager who alleges and he denies manhandled her. but its to not seem to have an effect. >> his campaign manager, who we
should say was standing next to donald trump. >> he said, "good job, corey," a show of support. >> we're watching a republican contest in missouri, democratic contest in missouri and illinois. we'll take a quick break. ♪ only those who dare... drive the world forward. introducing the first-ever cadillac ct6.

let's get a key race alert. thee outstanding contests remaining. nail biter in missouri on the republican side. donald trump 41.8%, ted cruz 41.2%. donald trump is ahead by only 3,141 votes. 71% of the vote is in. we have still not been able to make a projection there. look how close it is in missouri on the republicans side. staying in missouri on the democratic side, it's close. bernie sanders has a lead of 10,038 votes. in illinois hillary clinton has a slight lead, 51.7 over bernie
sanders's 47.5%. it's very cholose on the republican side in missouri as well. let's go to john king. while you're hooking at the three contests, it's very close in actually of them. >> i'm just trying to look at some of the delegate math. i've been very generous, if donald trump holds out in missouri and illinois, we tonight know the break down just yet. again, that's an overly generous number. donald trump is going to end the night needing to win 60%, probably a little higher than 60% of the remaining republican delegates. there's 1,006 republican delegates left to be won in the remaining contest. donald trump will have to win 60% of those remaining delegates. not impossible but difficult.
not all of those states are winner take all. everyone says where does kasich win from there? that win in ohio substantially increases the odds that donald trump gets there in the lead the there. now let's look at the democratic race. without dealing with illinois or missouri yesterday, this is quite substantial, hillary clinton now has a 300 delegate lead. forget the super delegates. the sanders campaign doesn't like to talk about it so we won't. it doesn't matter. she has what 300 delegate lead right now. even if bernie sanders wins missouri, it's very close and gets slightly more than hillary clinton, both races illinois and missouri are 50/50. even if we're overly jealous,
hillary clinton will end over 300. the clinton campaign thinks they can still win illinois and missouri and they're in position to possibly do that. even if they don't, they're going to end in the ballpark of a 300 delegate lead, that they will make the case -- 72%, if that's the case, senator sanders would have to win 72% of the remaining delegates from here on out. all hillary clinton would have to do is keep her current percentage. so the clinton campaign will say mathematically it's impossible. the sanders campaign will say there's some nice states to come but the math at the end of the night especially on the democratic side, pretty overwhelmingly on hillary clinton's side. the stop trump movement will say he's not going to get there by the convention. supporters will say even if he doesn't, he'll have a lopsided lead. that fight continues. you need 1,237 according to the
current rules of the rnc. let's go to anderson. >> let's try to play out what happens, assume being trump doesn't get the complete number of delegates he needs, comes close to john's point but doesn't get it. nia, what happens in cleveland? >> it's going to be helter skelter in terms of trying to stop trump. the establishment trying to stop him butch also this ey -- glori laid out two scenarios, can they find a way to rehabilitate trump? can they clean him up and make him presentable? >> by that point many in the establishment will have even up the stop trump and tried to make their peace with him. >> i'm not sure they're ever going to give up in trying to
stop donald trump in this process. i see signs they're going o want to night this thing all the way through cleveland. to nia's point, donald trump tonight was a more conciliatory trump, other than calling the media disgusting. >> he meant that in a nice way. >> he made reference to having spoken to paul ryan and one other item, if i can point this out, anderson, about the night that he had. earlier david chalian voted that 37% of those in florida who wished to give a path to illegals nevertheless voted for donald trump. i looked at the florida internals and see trump won 38% of noncuban hispanics. you know he's loves to say the hispanics, they love me, tonight
to an ex-teto an extent they di. >> i disagree the establishment will never give up. if donald trump is close, in the 45 to 50 range, i think they're going to be resigned to the reality of this thing -- >> can't deny it. >> it's simply too messy to deny a guy who is right on the doorstep of claim being ting th nomination. you'd rip your party apart. can you imagine that convention? >> today i heard jeb bush was going to come back. >> many republicans believe in they nominate donald trump it will destroy the republican party. others believe if they fight the nomination on the floor, it will destroy the republican party. either way, i'll be watching it from my classy estate with my super model wife.
>> 50%, 60% of the republican votes, i.e. kdelegates, how do you say as party representatives, we know better than you. i think that would be a huge mistake -- >> they're going to try to fight it before. >> it still going to resonate badly with his supporters. >> we have a key race alert in missouri. all of a sudden ted cruz has taken a very slight lead over donald trump in missouri, 77% of the vote is in. look at how close it is with donald trump, 41.6%, 892 votes separate these two. ted cruz is speaking right now. i think we're going to go listen to ted cruz.
he's in houston. >> thank you so very much. god bless each and every one of you. thank you, dan patrick, for leading our team here in the state of texas. [ applause ] >> and isn't carly extraordinary? [ cheers and applause ] such a tree mpdous leader. and i got to tell you, she terrifies hillary clinton. hillary tosses and turns in her jail cell thinking about her. tonight was a good night. [ applause ] tonight we continued to gain delegates and continue our march to 1,237.
and after tonight america now has a clear choice going forward. let me say a word about marco rubio. marco is a friend. he's a colleague. he ran a strong, optimistic, positive campaign. his tstory, the son of a bartender, son of a maid who fled cuba seeking freedom. it's powerful, it's inspirational, his story inspires me. his story can weave a tapestry of america like nobody else. his campaign inspired millions across the nation. i congratulate marco and
jeanette on a tremendous campaign they ran together. to those who supported marco, who worked so hard, we welcome you with open arms. [ cheers and applause ] with gratitude and with hope and with a positive vision together for our great nation, we welcome you to join us along with remarkable leaders like carly fiorina, like governor rick perry, and like all of the republicans who are uniting behind our campaign, mike mike he to mark levin, to "national review." starting tomorrow morning, every republican has a clear choice.
only two campaigns have a plausible path to the nomination, ours and donald trump's. nobody else has any mathematical possibility whatsoever. only one campaign has beaten donald trump over and over and over again. [ cheers and applause ] not once, not twice, no three times, but nine times all across the country from alaska to maine. and going forward the choice is straight forward. do you want a candidate who shares your values, or a candidate who has spent decades opposing your values? the mainstream media, the network suits who make the decisions want donald trump as
the republican nominee. that's why they've given him hundreds and millions in free advertising because they are partisan democrats ready for hillary. and they know donald may be the one person on the face of the earth that hillary clinton can beat in the general election. but the media aren't going to decide this election. the voters will. [ cheers and applause ] >> and here's our vision for america. it's an america with a brighter future. it's an america with greater opportunity for our kids and grand kids. it's an america with more liberty and more safety and more security. it is america that is great are tomorrow than it is today and than it was yesterday. this election will focus on three critical issues -- jobs,
freedom and security. as president, my number one priority will be jobs, turning around the stagnation, the misery of the obama/clinton economy. up kn you know, it's easy to talk about making america great again. you can even print that on a baseball cap. but the critical question is whether you understand the principles and values that made america great in the first place. the heart of our economy isn't in washington, d.c. the heart of our economy is small businesses all across the united states of america. if i'm elected president, we will repeal every word of
obamacare. [ cheers and applause ] we will pass a simple flat tax and abolish the irs. [ cheers and applause ] we will reign in the e.p.a. and government regulator that are killing small businesses and we'll stop amnesty, secure the borders, end sanctuary cities and end welfare benefits for those here illegally. and the result will be millions upon millions of high paying jobs. it will be wages rising for people all across america, it will be young people coming out of school with two three, four, five job opportunities.
far too many politicians focus on washington, d.c. to the lobbyists, to those like donald trump who buy influence and to those like hillary clinton who sell influence, washington is the center of the universe. but we understand that isn't right. together we will make washington less relevant in all of our lives. [ applause ] we'll fire government regulators and repeal job killing regulations. and together we will take the boot of the federal government off the backs of the necks of small businesses all across this
country. it's not about the cronyism and the bailouts that far too many republicans and democrats have done over and over again to benefit the rich and powerful. instead less government is more freedom. higher wages and a better standard of life for all of us. the second critical issue in this election is freedom. two debates ago donald trump promised all of us that he would compromise would harry reed and chuck schumer on replacing
antonin scalia on the supreme court. let me tell america i will not compromise away your religious liberty. and i will not compromise away your second amendment right to keep and bear arms. and every justice i appoint to the court will be faithful to the law and will ferociously protect the bill of rights for your children and for mine. [ applause ] the third critical issue in this election is security. for seven years we've abandoned our friends and allies and we've shown weakness and appeasement to our enemies. two debates ago donald trump promised as president to be neutral between israel and the
palestinians. well, let me be clear. as president, i will not be neutral. [ cheers and applause ] america will stand unapologetically with the nation of israel. [ cheers and applause ] and anyone who cannot tell the difference between our friends and our enemies, who cannot tell the difference between israel and islamic terrorists who seek to murder us, that raises real questions about their fitness and judgment to be commander in chief. donald trump says he will keep in place in iranian nuclear deal and try to renegotiate it. i will rip to shreds this iranian nuclear deal on the very first day in office.
over seven years president obama has weakened and undermined the military. we've seen this before with another weak democratic president, jimmy carter, who did the same thing. and in january 1981 ronald reagan came into office. and what did reagan do? he cut taxes, lifted regulation, pulled government off the backs of the necks of small businesses. we saw millions of high paying jobs, generated trillions in new government revenue and he used that money to rebuild the military, to bankrupt the soviet union and to win the cold war. i intend to to the exact same thing with radical islamic terrorism.
we will see millions and millions of high paying jobs, trillions in revenue and we will use that revenue to rebuild this military so it remains the mightiest fighting force on the face of the planet. [ cheers and applause ] tomorrow we have a choice, a clear and simple choice. enough with the washington corruption. enough with the deception, with using government to benefit the rich and powerful at the expense of hard working taxpayers. together we can turn things around. if we stand together, if we remember the common sense free market principles that built america, the constitutional liberties that built america, once again standing together, we can have morning in america.
[ applause ] now is the time for republicans to unite, for independents to unite, for libertarians to unite, for all of us who want a brighter future for our nation to come together and stand at one. starting tomorrow morning there is a clear choice, a clear and direct choice. and for everyone who wants to see a brighter tomorrow, we welcome you to our teams, we welcome you with open and welcoming arms. thank you and god bless you.
