tv Super Tuesday Primary Night Coverage CSPAN March 2, 2016 1:00am-2:01am EST
if i am going to win all of these states, and at worst, second, it is awfully hard to say that is not the person we want to lead the party. i think it is a great question, because i really think that one of the biggest things everyone it sees happening, is the republican party has become more dynamic and diverse. we are taking from the democrats and the independents. we have a lot more people. take a look at south carolina. look at the numbers from four years ago. then -- i was there, you had lines a mile long. it virtually more than doubled. we have a very, very dynamic party. and i think we will be able to unify the party.
i think we will get along with everybody. i don't know paul ryan well, but i hope to get along with it. i do know mitch mcconnell a little bit. remember this, i have millions and millions and millions of people. this is not a close match. it is too bad winner did not take all, because this thing would be over, and we would have a celebration. [applause] mr. trump: look, i want to end by thanking everyone. this has been an amazing period in my life. and you know my daughter will be having a baby very soon, and she is a special person. that could certainly be within the next week. this has been an amazing period of time, even from an educational standpoint. i did something almost nobody
thought could be done. and i am very proud. i am a unifier, i would love to see the republican party and everybody get together and unify. when we unify, there is nobody that is going to beat us. thank you very much everybody. [applause] >> in the democratic race on super tuesday, hillary clinton one in seven of the 11 states holding primaries. she talked at it campaign rally in miami, florida where they hold their presidential primary in two weeks. this is half an hour. ♪ mrs. clinton: thank you all so
much. what a super tuesday. [applause] all across our country today, democrats voted to break down barriers so we can all rise together. [cheering] i am so delighted to be here with you in florida. [cheers] i congratulate senator sanders on his strong showing and campaigning. i am grateful to all of you who voted for me. the volunteers and organizers.
i know you have worked your hearts out. and to all my friends, many of the lifetime that have traveled to all the states to tell people about the candidate they knew. in the hundreds of thousands of people who went to hillary clinton.com to give what they could. most less than $100. [cheers] now this campaign moves forward to the crescent city, the motor city, and beyond. [cheers] we are going to work for every vote, and we will need all of you to keep volunteering, contributing, doing everything you can. talking to your friends and neighbors. because this country belongs to all of us, not just those at the top. [cheers] not just the people that look one way, worship one way, or even think one way. [cheers]
america prospers when we all prosper. america is strong when we are all strong. [cheers] and we know we've got work to do. but that work -- that work is not to make america great again. america never stopped being great. [cheers] we have to make america whole. [cheers]we have to will -- we have to fill in what has been hollowed out. [chanting u.s.a.] mrs. clinton: no, we have to make strong the broken places, we stitch the bonds -- restitch the bonds of trust and respect across our country. it might be unusual, as i have said before, for presidential candidate to say this, but i'm
going to keep saying it -- i believe what we need in america today is more love and kindness. [cheers] you know what? it works. instead of building walls, we are going to break barriers-- [cheers] build ladders of opportunity and empowerment so every american can live up to his or her potential. because then and only then can america live up to its full potential. [cheers] it is clear tonight that the stakes in this election have never been higher.
and the rhetoric we are hearing on the other side has never been lower. [boos] trying to divide america between us and them is wrong. we are not going to let it work. [cheers] whether we like it or not, we are all in this together, my friends. [cheers] and we all have to do our part. but unfortunately, to many of those with the most wealth and power in this country today, seem to have forgotten that basic truth about america. yesterday i was in the old south meeting house in boston, where nearly 2.5 centuries ago, american patriots organized the original tea party. and i had to wonder what they
would make a operations that seem to have -- make of corporations that seem to have no loyalty to the country that gave them so much. what would they say about student loan companies that overcharge young people struggling to get out of debt? [cheers] even young men and women serving our country in the military. or corporations that ship their headquarters overseas to avoid paying their fair share of taxes. [cheers] like johnson control and auto-parts companies from wisconsin, that all of us, we taxpayers hope to bailout --taxpayers helped to bail out in the auto wrecks the 2008, now they are turning their backs on america. [boos] i am not interested in condemning whole categories of people businesses. i'm just interested in making things right. let there be no doubt, if you cheat your employees, exploit consumers, pollute our
environment, or rip off the taxpayers, we are going to hold you accountable. [cheers] but if you do the right thing, if you invest in your workers and in america's future, then we will stand with you. we all need to work together to break down the barriers holding back our families and our country. because the middle class needs a raise. [cheers] and more good jobs. jobs that pay enough for a family to live on. [cheers] even put a little away for retirement. jobs that provide dignity and a bright future. that is why we have to invest in manufacturing, in infrastructure, in small
business and clean energy. enough clean energy to power every home in america. [cheers] don't let anybody tell you we can't make things in america anymore, because we can. we are, and we will. [cheers] together we can break down the barriers that face families across america especially in rust belt communities and small appalachian towns that have been hollowed out by lost jobs and lost hope. families who kept our lives on and our factories running. we can break down barriers for our kids so they get the education they need and deserve. [cheers and applause] every child in america should
have a great school and a great teacher no matter what zip code they live in. we can break down barriers for women and finally guarantee equal pay for equal work. [applause] and we can break down barriers for families who have seen too many black children harassed, humiliated. we can break down barriers for voters in north carolina who have been systematically disenfranchised.
we can break down barriers for hard-working immigrants everywhere who are too often exploited and intimidated. we have to defend all of our rights, workers rights, women's rights, civil rights, voting rights. lgbt rides and rights for people with disabilities. that starts by standing with president obama when he nominates a strong supreme justice to the supreme court. [applause] i know too many americans have lost faith in our future. we hear it in the voices of parents who don't know how they are going to give their kids the opportunities they deserve. we see in the eyes of working men and women who don't expect anything to come easy but wonder
why it has to be quite so hard. like many of you i find strength and purpose in the values i learned from my family and my faith. they gave me simple words to live by. do all the good you can for all the people you can for as long as you can. that is why i believe that if we resist the forces trying to drive us apart we can come together to make this country work for everyone, the strong leading -- the struggling. we can restore our common faith in our common future. that is the spirit powering this campaign. it comes from the young janitor in arkansas who stopped buying junk food and put off being a haircut to contribute to it.
it comes from the disabled combat veteran from nebraska who sent in $10. it is seven years of his life he had never donated to a campaign until now. you can join us. go to hillary clinton.com, make a donation. text joined to 47246. let me leave you with a story that has inspired so many of us. we know what happened in flint, michigan don't we? our city's children were poisoned by toxic water because their governor wanted to save money. there is another story in flint. the story of a community that has been knocked down but refused to be knocked out. it is hundreds of union plumbers coming from across the country to help install new water systems. it is students showing up to distribute supplies.
it is the united auto workers donating millions of dollars to help. when i visited flint a few weeks ago i went to the house of prayer missionary baptist church, the congregation locked arms and saying. we have come too far from where we started from. they are not about to quit now. we know there are many other flints out there, communities that need help. we have come too far in this country to let us turn back. we are going to build on the progress that we have made. we have save the auto industry thanks to president obama. now we have to create new jobs and industries of the future. [applause] we now have ensured 90% of
americans -- we need to get to 100%. we have come too far to stop now. we have to keep going. keep forking. -- keep working. keep breaking down barriers and imagine what we can build together when each and every american has the chance to live up to his or her god-given potential. thank you so very much. thank you. [cheers and applause] [crowd chanting "hillary"]

here i look at one country in debt and i use it to explore great themes. the holocaust, the cold war, the challenge of vladimir putin. romanians in moldova you have a longer order with ukraine that even poland has. to study romania is to that event legacy of empires. >> sunday night on q&a. a 30 year journey through romania and beyond. he talks about the history of the balkan states and romania struggle to regain democracy. >> it was extremely corrupt. endemic lee it had weak wasitutions and everything based on bribe and doubledealing. what this shows is this is nothing new. what is happening is that the romanian population has grown up
and become far more sophisticated and is demanding clean government. it is its number one demand. eastern on 8:00 c-span's q&a. c-span's student cam documentary contest need your vote. we selected the top five student videos and now you get to select the fan favorites. this week, castor vote online. the student who has the most votes will win the fan favorite rise of $500. the winner will be announced on march 9, live on c-span. >> on super tuesday, senator bernie sanders held a campaign rally in his home state of vermont, addressing supporters soon after the polls closed.
from sanders campaign headquarters in essex junction, this is the teen minute. -- this is 15 minutes. [cheers and applause] mr. sanders: thank you. [cheers and applause] >> good to be home. mr. sanders: thank you all. [cheers and applause] thank you. [cheers and applause] [crowd chanting] mr. sanders: thank you. it is good to be home. [cheers and applause] you know, i have been all over
-- thank you. it is good to be home. [cheers and applause] you know, i have been all over this country but the truth is, it is great and great to come home and see all of my friends. [cheers and applause] we want to win in every part of the country. that goes without saying. but it does say something and means so much to me that the people who know me best, the people who knew me before i was elected, who knew me as mayor, knew me as congressman, and have known me as senator, have voted so strongly to put us in the white house.
thank you so much. [cheers and applause] this campaign, as i think all of you know, this campaign is not just about electing a president, it is about transforming america. [cheers and applause] it is about making our great country the nation that we know it has the potential to be. [cheers and applause] it is about dealing with the
unpleasant truth that exists in america today, and having the guts to confront those truths. [cheers and applause] it is about recognizing that in our state, we have town meetings and people come out, they argue about budgets, and then they vote. one person, one vote. [cheers and applause] in vermont, billionaires do not buy town meetings, and in america, we are going to end a corrupt campaign finance system. [cheers and applause] we can disagree on democracy,
that's what a democracy is about. but i hope all of us agree that we're going to not allow billionaires and their superpacs to destroy america's democracy. [cheers and applause] in our state, in our state, you all know, that we have many, many thousands of vermonters who are working not just one job, they're working two jobs, they're working three jobs. and you all know that while our people are working so hard, almost all of the new wealth and income generated in america is
going to the top 1%. [crowd booing] while together what we are going to do is create an economy that works for all of us, not just the people on top. [cheers and applause] and together we are going to end and reform a broken criminal justice system. [cheers and applause] this country, the wealthiest country in the history of the world, should not be having more people in jail than any other country on earth. that's wrong. [cheers and applause]
so we are going to invest for our young people in education, in jobs, not jails or incarceration. [cheers and applause] i know many of my republican colleagues think that climate change is a hoax. [crowd booing] i believe that you don't develop real public policy unless you listen to the science and the science is clear.
[cheers and applause] together we are going to transform our energy system away from fossil fuels to energy efficiency and sustainable energy. [cheers and applause] now, i know that secretary clinton and many of the establishment people think that i am looking and thinking too big. i don't think so. [audience booing] so let me go on the record and say, if you have meard -- as you have heard me say for years, health care is a right for all people. [cheers and applause] and let me also say that in the
united states of america, when we talk about public education, it's not just first grade through 12th. that has got to be expanded to make public colleges and universities tuition-free. [cheers and applause] what i have said from day one in this campaign, and i suspect many of you were out on the lake with me when we announced on that beautiful day. [cheers and applause] what i have said is that this campaign is not just about electing a president, it is about making a political revolution. [cheers and applause]
what that revolution is about is bringing millions of millions of people into the political process, working people who have been so disillusioned they no longer vote, young people who have never been involved. what the political revolution is about is bringing our people together. black and white, latino, asian americans. [cheers and applause] gay and straight. people born in america, people who have immigrated to america. when we bring our people together, when we do not allow the trump interest -- donald trumps of the world to divide us up -- [cheers and applause]
-- when we bring our people together and when we have the courage to stand up to the billionaire class and tell them they can't have it all. [cheers and applause] that our government belongs to all of us, not just superpacs and wealthy campaign contributors. [cheers and applause] tonight you're going to see a lot of election results come in. let me remind you of what the media often forgets about. these are not -- this is not a general election, it's not winner-take-all. if you get 52%, you get 48%, you roughly end up with the same amount of delegates in a state.
at the end of tonight, 15 states will have voted, 35 states remain. and let me assure you that we are going to take our fight for economic justice, for social justice, for environmental sanity, for a world of peace to every one of those states. [cheers and applause] now, wall street may be against us and the superpacs may be against us, but you know why we're going to win? because our message is resonating and the people, had we stand together, will be victorious. [cheers and applause]
on a personal note, i want to thank all of you for the love and the friendship that you have given our family. you have sustained me. >> we love you, bernie! [cheers and applause] mr. sanders: and i am so proud to bring vermont values all across this country. [cheers and applause] so thank you again for helping us win here in vermont. tonight -- [cheers and applause] and i look forward this evening to just saying hello to so many old friends. so thank you all very much. [cheers and applause]
