another big, big election day. [applause] sen. cruz: one week from today, the people of north carolina get to speak. [applause] today,uz: one week from we hear from florida, and ohio, and illinois, and missouri. let me tell you, the combination ,f today, and a week from today we are in the middle of march madness. [applause] sen. cruz: i am told folks in carolina know something about that.
are deciding the future of our kids and grandkids. north carolina, right now, is a battleground state in this primary. we effectively tied with donald trump in north carolina. [applause] neck and neck.s speak to take a minute to to people who may have been supporting somebody else. we started with 17 candidates. atant to speak to folks home, maybe were supporting jeb bush, or chris christie, or mike huckabee, or rand paul, rick santorum. maybe you are supporting dr. ben carson. maybe you were supporting carly fiorina. are, right now,
supporting marco rubio, or john kasich. every one of them good, honorable, decent people. every one of them i like, and respect. has any viablem path to beating donald trump and becoming the republican nominee. [applause] sen. cruz: if you were supporting one of those other good, honorable people, let me tell you we welcome you to our team. [applause] sen. cruz: our incredible victories in kansas, and maine, were driven by people from other campaigns coming in joining us. coming together saying the only way to beat donald trump is if we stand together. [applause]
sen. cruz: what donald trump wants is us divided. if we are divided, he wins the nomination. then hillary becomes the president. that ain't gonn a haooen,. -- happen. [applause] d stande you to come an and join together -- this election will come down to three simple issues -- jobs, freedom, and security. let's talk jobs. all across this country, people are hurting. want to talk, for a minute, to the single moms were working 2-3
part-time jobs. you've have had your hours forcibly reduced to 28-29 hours a week because obamacare kicks in at 30 hours per week. i want to talk to all of the truck drivers, the plumbers, and electricians and mechanics, the on and women with calluses your hands. senior wages not going up year your wages-- seeing not going of your fear. cost of living is going up, but somehow your wages don't seem to keep pace. i want to talk to the young people coming out of school to student loans coming out of your eyeballs. scared, am i going to get a job? what does the future hold? will i be able to provide for my family? the media tells us this is as good as it gets. let me tell you, that is an absolute lie.
[applause] sen. cruz: it is easy to talk about making america great. you can even print to that on a baseball cap. the question is, do you understand the principles that made america great in the first place? [applause] sen. cruz: the heart of our economy isn't washington, d.c., or new york city. the heart of our economy is small businesses all across this great nation. [applause] sen. cruz: you want to kill the economy you hammer small businesses like we have done the last seven years. you want to see unbelievable economic growth, take the boot
of the federal government off the back of the next of small businesses. [applause] if i am elected president, we will repeal every word of obamacare. [applause] >> cruz! cruz! sen. cruz: we will pass commonsense health care reform to make health insurance personal, and portable, and affordable, and keep government from getting in between us and our doctors. [applause]
we will pass a simple, flat tax. [applause] so every american can fill out his or her taxes on a postcard. we should that, abolish the irs. [applause] sen. cruz: we are going to rein in the epa in all the federal regulators that are hammering small businesses. stop amnesty, secure the borders, and and the sanctuary cities.
sanctuary cities. [applause] sen. cruz: donald trump likes to talk about immigration. there is one minor problem -- donald has been funding open border democrats for 40 years. battleg of eight amnesty with marco rubio joining up with barack obama to push amnesty. donald trump funded the gang of eight. five of the eight members donald trump gave collectively over $50,000. i met a very different decision. i chose to honor the promises that i made to the men and women who elected me and i love the fight against amnesty and we defeated it in the u.s. congress. [applause]
sen. cruz: did you notice at the last debate how many times donald said he was going to be flexible? , inme tell you, flexible d.c., that is a code word for getting ready to stick it to you. because somehow, flexibility in d.c. always means cutting a deal that benefits wall street, and the big corporate interests, and the working men and women get left in the cold. [applause] we are going to repeal obama care, abolish the irs, rein in the regulation, stop amnesty, secure the borders, and it will be millions of high-paying jobs. it will be wages going up for everybody. it will be young people coming
,5 job school with 2,3,4 offers. it will be morning in america again. [applause] sen. cruz: the second key issue in this election is freedom. amen. justiceew weeks ago, scalia's passing underscored for all of us the stakes of this election. twos not one branch, but branches of government that hang in the balance. we are one liberal justice away from a radical five justice left wing majority the likes of which this nation has never seen. we are one justice away from the
supreme court stripping away religious liberty from every person in this country. we are one justice away from the supreme court effectively erasing the second amendment from the bill of rights. we one justice away from the supreme court holding us subject to the authority of the world court, and the united nations, and international law, and giving up u.s. sovereignty. two debates ago, hugh hewitt asked each of us a question about religious liberty, and supreme court. donald turned to me and said ted, i've known a lot more politicians than you have. well, in that he is right. supporting left-wing politicians practically longer than i've been alive.
when it comes to the supreme court, and religious liberty, you have to be prepared to compromise. you have to learn to work a deal , and negotiate with the democrats. let me be very clear to the men and women of north carolina -- i will not compromise away your religious liberty. [applause] sen. cruz: i will not compromise away your second amendment right to keep, and bear arms. [applause] sen. cruz: the third key issue
in this election is security. for seven years, we've seen a president who abandoned and alienates our friends and allies. he shows weakness and appeasement to our enemies. two debates ago donald trump explained to all of us that if he is president he intends to be neutral between israel and the palestinians. let me be very clear, as president, i have no intention of being neutral. [applause] sen. cruz: america will stand come on apologetically, with the nation of israel. [applause]
-- america will stand, unapo logetically, with the nation of israel. democracy that values human rights and the military ally that provides precious intelligence and military support, keeping americans safe. the other is a murderous government that murders women and children. anyone that doesn't understand the difference between that and one of america's most valuable allies raises questions about his ability to be commander-in-chief. [applause] over the last seven thes, we have seen condition of our military
deteriorate dramatically. we have seen our readiness undermined, morale plummeting. who a commander-in-chief doesn't believe in the mission, and doesn't support, the military. before.seen this we have seen other left-wing democratic president who undermine the military -- jimmy carter. in 1981, ronald reagan came into office. [applause] sen. cruz: what did reagan do? he cut taxes, lifted regulations, the economy exploded. they generated trillions in new government revenue, he used to that revenue to rebuild the military. we bankrupted the soviet union and won the cold war. [applause]
i intend to do the exact same thing with radical islamic terrorists. [applause] sen. cruz: we are going to repeal obama care, pass a flat tax, lift regulations come of the economy is going to explode. millions of new jobs, trillions in revenue, we will rebuild this military so it remains the mightiest fighting force on the face of the planet. [applause] sen. cruz: no longer will our military be governed by political correctness. [applause] we will have a
commander-in-chief who stands up and says to the world we will defeat radical islamic terrorists. [applause] we will have a president willing to utter the words radical islamic terrorists. [applause] sen. cruz: one of the most shameful aspects of the last seven years is having a president who sends our fighting men and women into combat with the rules of engagement so strict they tied their arms behind their backs and make it impossible for them to fight, and win, and defend themselves. immoral,rong, it is and mark my words in january, 2017, it will end. [applause]
sen. cruz: this election will not be decided by the media. it will not be decided by the pundits. it will be decided by the people. let me say to folks at home, and mississippi, in michigan, idaho, hawaii, if you haven't voted please come out and vote right now. stand with us. [applause] sen. cruz: let me say to the people of north carolina one week from today is going to be north carolina's chance to roar.
[cheers] sen. cruz: you want to understand the stakes of this election? raleigh, iay, up in was asked by a reporter what i newght about donald trump's practice of asking everyone to stand up and raise their hand and pledge support of him. i didn't know what i thought of it at first. when they asked me that, my reaction -- i said there is a minute strikes me profoundly wrong about that. this is a job interview. younot here asking any of to pledge your support of me. i'm here pledging my support of you. [applause]
sen. cruz: this is not a reality tv show. this is not a game show. this is the future of the country. listen, donald, it is not about us. no political candidate is going to make america great again. trump won't, i won't come up bernie sanders won't, nobody will. enough toorce strong restore this nation is we, the people. [applause]
sen. cruz: this notion of demanding people stand, and raise their hands, pledging allegiance -- we are familiar with that. monarchies, the kings and queens demand that of their subjects. but in america, no man is above the law. we begin with the proposition that rights don't come from government, they come from god come almighty. [applause] god, almighty. [applause] sen. cruz: if we stand together as one, then the only hand
live every day with the news and policy issues that impact you. and wednesdays, our first guess is laurie wallace talking about the campaign 2016. after that, we announced the winners of our 2016 student cam documentary. then a republican from oklahoma, seventhor of "dig deep: truths to finding strength within." he talks about the impact this election is having on the republican party. watch live beginning at 7 a.m. eastern. >> attorney general loretta lynch testifies tomorrow on capitol hill about the justice department's 2017 budget request . she is expected to be questions about the fbi-apple encryption case. we joined that committee hearing live in progress at 10:00 a.m.

[cheers] senator sanders: let me thank erica, zenya. [applause] senator sanders: i want to thank the congresswoman not only for willingness to put her life on the line to defend our country in the military -- [cheers] senator sanders: but for her emphasis on understanding how important foreign-policy is and that bad foreign-policy results in the loss of lives, young americans and people abroad. and that bad foreign-policy ends
up costing us trillions of dollars. i just came back from michigan and i visited flint, michigan. all of you know what is going on in flint? in flint, children are being poisoned by drinking water filled with lead. [booing] sen. sanders: i don't understand how this country has trillions of dollars to spend on the war in iraq, but we can't take care of flint, michigan. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: now, what this campaign is about is doing
something very radical. we are telling the american people the truth. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: and sometimes, the truth is not necessarily pleasant. i wish from the bottom of my heart that i could come before you and tell you how great everything is, that there are no problems, but if i did that, i would to you and you know i would be lying. what we have to do is have the courage to face the reality of where we are and have the courage to take on the big-money interest -- [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: whose greed is
destroying our economy. so let me tell you several truths that other candidates will not tell you. number one, and i say this as the former chairman of the senate veterans committee, someone who will continue to work hard to protect the veterans -- [applause] sen. sanders: veterans have put their lives on the line to defend our way of life, which means our democratic form of government. and i want to tell you right now that our democratic form of government is under severe
severe attack as a result of this disaster is citizens united supreme court decision. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: now, what democracy is about -- you agree with me and you want to vote for me, great. you disagree with me and what to vote against me, that's great, that's called democracy. [cheers] sen. sanders: you get a vote and she gets a vote, we all get one vote but what is happening now is we are losing this concept of one person, one vote, and what we see is billionaires buying elections. [booing] sen. sanders: what we are seeing is one family, the koch brothers , and a few other billionaires -- [booing] sen. sanders: oh, you know the koch brothers. [laughter] sen. sanders: they and their billionaire friends are prepared
to spend $900 million on this election cycle. [booing] sen. sanders: their goal is to elect candidates who, of course, will represent the rich and the powerful. when you have a handful of billionaires -- a handful -- spending more money on a campaign than either the democratic or republican party, that is not democracy, that is oligarchy. [cheers and applause] >> [chanting] bernie, bernie, bernie. sen. sanders: our first fight is to overturn the citizens united decision. [applause]
sen. sanders: our fight is to make sure we have one of the highest voter turnouts in the world, not one of the lowest. [applause] sen. sanders: our job is to end republican voter suppression. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: you have cowardly republican governors who are working overtime, trying to make it harder for people to participate in the political process. our job is to make it easier, not harder, to increase the voter turnout. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: next tuesday here in florida, let's show the world -- [cheers and applause]
sen. sanders: let's show the world that democracy is alive and well with a huge voter turnout, huge. [applause] sen. sanders: and i'm talking about a huge voter turnout. [cheers] sen. sanders: what the wealthy and powerful want -- this is really what they want -- they want young people not to participate in the political process. they want you to say politics is crap, they want working-class people to say no when in washington cares about me, i'm not going to vote. when you have low voter turnout, you have billionaires buying elections and that is what we have got to overturn. [cheers]
sen. sanders: what we have got to show the american people is that when we don't allow the trumps of the world to divide us up -- when we stand together, black and white and latino, gay and straight -- [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: they may have all of the money and all of the power, but you know what we got? we have the people. [cheers and applause] >> [chanting] bernie.bernie, bernie,
sen. sanders: and this is the lesson of history -- when people stand together, there is nothing we cannot accomplish. [cheers] sen. sanders: secretary hillary clinton and i have a number of differences and i want to briefly discuss them. one of them deals with campaign finance. when you run for president, sadly but truthfully, you have to raise hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars if not more. when i entered this race, i had to make a decision -- should i do what almost all candidates a do and -- [cheers]
sen. sanders: this is a very smart audience. you answered my question before i asked it. but what other candidates do and the way it's a done, unfortunately in 2016, what you do is establish a super pac, go to billionaires, two mansions come and you leave with millions of dollars. that money comes from wall street, the drug companies, the fossil fuel industry. that is one way you raise money. what hillary clinton has done is established several super pacs. she has raised $15 million from wall street. [booing] sen. sanders: in addition to that, she has given speeches behind closed doors to wall street financial institutions like goldman sachs.
here's the story on that one. she gets paid $225,000 for a speech. that is a lot of money for an hour speech. i think if you get paid that kind of money for one speech, it must he a brilliant speech. and i think if it is such a brilliant speech, you want to share it with the american people. [cheers] sen. sanders: secretary clinton has said she is prepared to release her transcripts if other candidates do. i am prepared -- are you ready? i am prepared to make a dramatic statement right now. all you ready for it?
[cheers] sen. sanders: i am repaired to release all of the transcripts of speeches -- i am prepared to release all of the transcripts of the speeches i give to wall street. here they are. you've got them. [cheers and applause] >> [chanting] bernie, bernie, bernie, bernie. sen. sanders: now, that is how secretary clinton raises some of her money. we do it in a different way and i want to tell you something. this is really important and
kind of revolutionary, because if we want to political dependence on wall street and the big money interest, the only way we can do it is to have campaigns funded by the middle class and working families. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: so when we began this campaign, what we said was something pretty simple but radical. we said to working families, we know many of you are hurting but if you want to support a campaign that will take on the billionaire class, that will transform our country, we need your help. do you know what happens? this is unbelievable. i never in a million years would have protected this happened. -- predicted this could happen. and the last 10 months of our campaign, we have received 5 million individual contributions. [cheers and applause]
sen. sanders: that is more individual contributions than any candidate in the history of our country up until this point. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: does anybody here know what the average contribution is? >> $27. sen. sanders: i love it. that's right, $27. to paraphrase abraham lincoln at gettysburg, this is a campaign
-- campaign of the people, by the people, and for the people. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: congresswoman gifford touched on another important difference between secretary clinton and myself and that is back in 2002, there was a debate in congress on what turned out to be the most important foreign policy issue in the modern history of this country. if all of you remember, president bush and vice president cheney and that whole group, they thought that it was a good idea to invade iraq. [booing] sen. sanders: i listened very,
very carefully to their arguments and i concluded that they were not telling the truth. i voted against the war. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: secretary clinton, who was then in the senate, heard the same arguments. she voted for the war. [booing] sen. sanders: and that war turned out to be the worst foreign-policy disaster in the modern history of this country. and it gives me no joy to tell you this, but if you go to my website, listen, read what i said in 2002 about my fears about what would happen and to a significant degree, what i said was right. [cheers]
sen. sanders: let me touch on another issue, which is obviously important to florida and all states all over this country. that is -- hold it. this is a sharp audience. [laughter] sen. sanders: you are about 12 seconds ahead of me. [laughter] sen. sanders: i am a member of the u.s. senate committee on the environment. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: i have spoken to scientists all over our country and scientists all over the world. the debate is over.
climate change is real. [cheers] sen. sanders: climate change is caused by human activity. and climate change is already causing devastating problems in florida, america, and around the world. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: and here is what is really scary. if you listen to what the scientists are telling us, what they are saying is if we do not get our act together in a short period of time, by the end of this century, this planet will be 5-10 degrees fahrenheit warmer.
what that means is it means more drought -- and we already seeing drought all over the world. it means more flooding -- we are already seeing more flooding. it means for florida and other coastal communities, more rising sea levels. it means the increased acidification of the ocean. we are destroying our oceans. it means more international conflict as people all over the world fight for the limited natural resources. to my mind, this issue is a no-brainer.
and if we consider ourselves to be moral people and to consider the needs of future generations, we have got to move aggressively in taking on the fossil fuel industry. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: and transforming our energy system away from fossil fuel to energy-efficiency . [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: we have got to lead the world. we can't do it alone. we have to work with other countries around the world. but we know already what has to
be done. we have incredible potential with solar panels. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: incredible potential with wind. iowa is already getting 30%-40% of its electricity from wind. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: we can do incredible things with energy efficiency, making our buildings more energy-efficient. we can create a state of the art rail system, which takes trucks off roads. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: virtually every scientist who studies this issue knows what has to be done. we are running into something really amazing and incredible and that is -- this connects the
dots to what i said a moment ago. i want you to think how is it that there is no republican candidate for president who will come before you and tell you the simple truth of what i have told you? that climate change is real? the answer is -- the answer gets back to a corrupt campaign-finance system. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: here is the truth -- that if a republican came before you and said i've read the literature, we have to do something about it, on that day, the koch brothers and other
fossil fuel campaign contributors would say you are not getting any more money. [applause] sen. sanders: that is what a corrupt campaign-finance system is doing to our country and i say to those republicans who are too cowardly to do the right thing -- [applause] sen. sanders: worry about your kids and your grandchildren and the future of this planet rather than your campaign contributions. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: in this campaign, we are listening to the american people. and what we are hearing from the american people is that workers
cannot make it on eight dollars, nine dollars, $10 an hour. you can do the arithmetic as well as i can. multiply $10 an hour by $40 a -- 40 hours a week by 52 weeks a year, he don't have enough money for a person to live on, let alone a family. i remember i was in nevada. a young woman, early 30's, came up to me and said "i've got a six-year-old daughter. i make $10.45 an hour, i have student loans, i'm scared to death about what will happen to my daughter and me.
that is why in america, we have got to understand the $7.25 minimum wage in this country is a starvation wage. we will raise that minimum wage. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: we are going to raise that minimum wage to a living wage, $15 an hour. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: in america, if you work 40 hours a week, you should not be living in poverty. end of discussion. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: this campaign is living -- listening to senior citizens.
and what senior citizens and disabled veterans are telling me is they can't make it on $11,000 or $12,000 a year. this is important because as a nation, we have to understand a nation is judged not by how many millionaires and billion as we have, but how we treat the weakest and most vulnerable among us. [applause] sen. sanders: here in florida, we have many seniors in my state . if you look at the course of prescription drugs -- the cost of prescription drugs, of health care, of keeping your house warm or cool, no one can make it on $12,000. what my republican colleagues in
the senate what to do, what they want to do is cut social security benefits. [boing] sen. sanders: what i want to do is increase social security benefits. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: this campaign is listening to young people. [cheers] sen. sanders: and what the young people are telling me is "why does it happen that just because we go to college or graduate school, we are stuck with debt for decades?" [cheers and applause]
sen. sanders: just out of curiosity, how many people here are dealing with student debt? [no audio] [applause] sen. sanders: i rest my case. i have talked -- and i'm sure it is similar in this room -- i have talked to people in my own state. a young woman wanted to become a doctor, went to medical school, is practicing primary health care to low income people. exactly the kind of doctors we need, she graduated medical school $300,000 in debt. talk to a young dentist in iowa, graduated dental school, $400,000 in debt. talked to a young man in iowa, left college after two years, $60,000 in debt.
talked to a guy in nevada -- this is incredible -- he's 35 -- 55 years old and has been paying off student debt for 25 years. he is more in debt today than when he started. [booing] sen. sanders: here is what this campaign is about is thinking outside of the box, thinking outside of the status quo. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: do not accept the status quo, do not accept crazy reality. it is crazy -- everybody tells young people in this country education is important. everybody says "get all the education you can." everybody says we live in a competitive global economy, we need the best educated workforce possible.
why then are we punishing people for getting an education? [cheers and applause] >> [chanting] bernie, bernie, bernie. sen. sanders: again, what i beg of you and of the american people, take a step back and look at the crazy things that go on in this country. this country today is the wealthiest country in the history of the world. nobody knows it because almost all of the income and wealth is going to the top 1%. don't tell me that we cannot
make public colleges and universities tuition-free. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: now, my opponents say this is a radical and crazy idea. tell that to the people in germany and scandinavia already doing it. [cheers and applause] sen. sanders: they are smart enough to know because they want the best intellectual capabilities of their people to become developed. what we want to do in this country is to tell every kid in america -- i come from a family with not much money. my parents never went to
college. i want every kid in america, and -- in the fourth and sixth grade, i want the boys and girls to know if their kids to their school work well, yes, they will get a college education. [applause] sen. sanders: and for those people who are crushed with student debt -- met a young man not so long ago. this guy was paying 52% of his income on student debt. i want to give all those people the opportunity to refinance that debt at the lowest interest rate they can find. applause]d
sen. sanders: now the wall street journal and "the washington post" and establishment, they say, bernie, your santa claus. all this free stuff. you want to provide free tuition at public colleges, you want to lower student debt. how are you going to pay for it? all of you know as a result of the greed, recklessness and illegal behavior on wall street, this country was plunged into the worst economic downturn since the great depression. and you know what happened? congress bailed them out. [booing] sen. sanders: hillary clinton, a senator, helped to bail them out. [booing]
sen. sanders: now, what i think is that right now we should impose a tax on wall street speculation. [applause] sen. sanders: and if we do that, we raise all of the money tuition andfree public colleges and universities. this is, again, seeking outside of what the establishment wants you to think. if this country could bail out crooks on wall street, why can't wall street help the working families of this country? [applause] and here is the simple truth on that issue. today, a college degree, in many respects, is the equivalent of
what high school degree was 50 or 60 years ago. 50 years ago, you had a high school degree, know what? you are in good shape. you go out and get a good, middle-class job. today, in many respects, not all, it takes a college degree. and i believe that when we talk about public education today, it's just not good enough to talk about first grade to 12th grade. it has got to be public colleges and universities tuition-free. [applause] this campaign is talking to women, and listening to women. [applause] and this is what women are saying. they are saying how does that happen that i work in an office or i work in a factory, whatever
i work, and i end up making on average 79 cents on the dollar compared to men? that's wrong. [booing] and i know that every man in this arena will stand with the women in the fight for pay equity. [applause] there is no rational economic reason why women are paid significantly less than men. it is sexism. and together, we are going to end it. [applause] [cheering] now, one of the things that this campaign is doing -- and is very hard with the media because the media, by and large, is not terribly interested in the
important issues facing our country -- [booing] but here is an issue media is not concerned about but millions of young couples are. i want you to think about this. again, thinking outside of the status quo and outside of the box. every person, and i should say every psychologist who studies human development knows that the most important years of a human being's life are zero through four, right? [applause] that is how we are shaped. significantly, in terms of our intellectual development and our emotional development. and yet, what we have today in millions ofare young couples, mom goes to work, dad goes to work, and they cannot find quality childcare. [crowd boos]
you have god knows how many kids who are two or three, you know what they are doing? watching stupid television programs. this is unfair to those parents of the children. it is more unfair to those future, the future of america, those kids. i believe, that in the wealthiest country in the history of the world, yes, we have the resources to have well-trained, well educated, well-paid educators taking care of our children. [applause] this campaign is listening to our brothers and sisters in the african-american community. [applause] [cheering]
and what they are saying, and i agree with, and i want you to think about this again, because we have got to overcome this status quo thinking. how does it happen that in this great country, we have more people in jail than any other country on earth? [crowd boos] china is four times our size. china is a communist, authoritarian country that does not tolerate dissent very well. we have more people in jail than china. [crowd boos] largely, disproportionately african-american, latino, and native americans. [crowd boos] today, and it's important that everybody understand this, because it is a national
disgrace, a african-american male baby born today, if we do not change this, stands a one in four chance of ending up in jail. [crowd boos] today, in america, we have youth unemployment which is off the charts. 51% of african-american kids between 17 and 20 who graduated high school are unemployed or underemployed. and if you think there is not a connection between that outrageous number and people in jail, you would be wrong. so, what we are going to do -- [applause] sen. sanders: we are going to
invest for our young people in jobs and education, not jail and incarceration! [cheering] [applause] sen. sanders: and the african-american community and the latino community, and all of us, are tired of seeing videos of unarmed people being killed by police officers. [cheering] [applause] i am a former mayor of burlington, vermont. i have worked with police officers. the vast majority of police officers are hard-working, honest, and are trying to do a very difficult job. [applause] [cheering]
but when a police officer breaks the law, like any other public official, he must be held accountable. [applause] [cheering] sen. sanders: it is unacceptable that local police departments around our country are heavily militarized and look like occupying armies. [crowd boos] sen. sanders: we have got to demilitarize local police departments. [applause] we have got to make police department part of the community, not an oppressive force in the community. [applause] [cheering] we have got to make police departments look like the diversity of the communities
they are serving. [applause] in my state, and i know in florida, there is a very, very serious problem with opiate addiction, with heroin addiction, and with other forms of substance abuse. we have got to understand that addiction and substance abuse are a health issue, not a criminal issue. [applause] [cheering] we have got to learn and
understand that, by and large, the so-called "war on drugs" has been a failure. [applause] over the last 30 years, millions of americans have received police records for possessing marijuana. [crowd boos] sanders: now, you can, you can argue about the pluses and minuses of marijuana, but right now, right now under the federal controlled substance act, marijuana is listed as a schedule one drug, right next to heroin. [crowd boos] sanders: now, i trust that every person in this room knows that heroin is a killer drug. causing devastating problems in my state and all over this country. now, whatever you think about marijuana, marijuana is not heroin. [applause]
[cheering] and that is why i have legislation in that would take marijuana out of the federal controlled substance code. [applause] [cheering] now, under our federalist form of government, we have federal, state and local government, whether or not marijuana becomes legal is a state issue, but it should not be a federal crime. [applause] [cheering] this campaign is listening to our brothers and sisters in the latino community. [applause] [cheering]
i want to tell you, if i might, a very brief story. in 2008, i went to a town, some of you may know in florida, near naples. that ring a bell? a small town near naples. the reason i went there because i have learned that undocumented workers were being incredibly exploited. [crowd boos] it is one of the towns where a lot of low-grade tomatoes, tomatoes used by mcdonald's and burger king, are grown. i went there. and ironically enough, this is 2008, on the day i arrived, front page story is that some contractor there was being charged with slavery. did y'all hear about that?
i could not believe what i was reading. 2008, people are charged with slavery, holding people in involuntary servitude. [crowd boos] well, what we did, what we did is we, i got up too early in the morning. but when the tomato people go to work at 5:30 in the morning and i saw what they experienced. i saw what these workers experienced, and it is not a pleasant sight. they are underpaid, they were exploited, the housing they lived in was gross. and their working conditions were unacceptable. and what we did is we held a hearing in washington, d.c., with the committee i'm on -- the late senator ted kennedy. [applause]
worked with me to hold that hearing. and to make a very long story short, that with the help of the great organizers and the workers themselves, we significantly improved living conditions and wages for those workers. [applause] and what i have learned since then, going around the country speaking to the latino community, is that people are frightened and tired of living in the shadows. they are tired and fearful about maybe a relative of their's being deported. and what they are asking me, and which i agree with, is we need comprehensive immigration reform. [applause] [cheering]
and a path toward citizenship. [applause] [cheering] and let me also say this. people in this country, they have honest differences of opinion about a lot of issues -- immigration reform and so forth. and i respect that. people have differences of opinion. but in the year 2016, bigotry and hatred is not acceptable. [applause] [cheering] it is beyond comprehension that people like donald trump and others are thinking -- [crowd boos] sen. sanders: are talking about sweeping up millions of people and deporting them. not going to happen. never will happen. never should happen!
[applause] [cheering] >> [crowd chanting "bernie"] sen. sanders: and if congress does not do its job and pass comprehensive immigration reform, i will use the powers of the presidency to protect those people. [applause] [cheering] our job together is to unite families, not to. divide families. [applause] >> we love you!
[applause] [cheering] sen. sanders: now, there is another issue i want to talk to everybody about, and that is, you know, you got republicans running all over this country talking about family values. and it's important, it's important that everybody in this room, in this state, in this country understand what republicans mean by family values. [applause] you know, i think i'm just going to invite people up here to give my speech today. [cheering] [applause] sen. sanders: because you are always 8 seconds ahead of me. here is what i was going to say.
ok. what i was going to say is when republicans talk about family values, everybody needs to know what they're really saying is that no woman in this arena, in this state, in this country should have the right to control her own body. i disagree. [applause] [cheering] what republicans are saying is they want to defund, they want to defund planned parenthood. i want to expand planned parenthood. [crowd boos] sanders: what republicans are saying is that our gay brothers and sisters should not have the right to get married. i disagree. [crowd boos] sanders: now, when you talk
about hypocrisy this issue isn't -- i know i do not shock anybody by suggesting in politics there will is a bit of hypocrisy. [laughter] but this issue kind of takes the cake, in this sense. you got republicans running around the country, they say government is awful. it is terrible. we are going to get the government off your backs. we are going to cut social security, medicare, medicaid, education. we are going to end the epa. we hate the government except -- except -- when a woman has a very personal choice to make, then they love the government. [applause] [cheering] and they want local, they want state government, and the federal government to make that decision for every woman in america. that is hypocrisy.
[applause] [cheering] i let me mention to you that i'm criticized every day for wanting or another. mostly, it is about thinking too big. thinking that this country can actually address the major crises that we face. i have apparently more confidence in the american people than many others. [applause] [cheering] >> [crowd chanting "bernie"] sen. sanders: now, it turns out, turns out that all over the industrialized world, whether it
is the united kingdom, france, germany, holland, scandinavia, canada, all over the industrialized world, health care is guaranteed to all people. [applause] [cheering] now, the affordable care act, and i'm on the committee that helped write it, has done some very good things. we have done away with this obscenity of pre-existing conditions. [applause] we have provided health insurance to 17 million more americans. [applause] and we have done away with discrimination against women, who are paying higher prices for premiums because they are women. [applause]
but today, 29 million americans still have no health insurance . and many of you are underinsured with high deductibles and high co-payments. am i right? [applause] and in america, we are being ripped off big time by the drug companies. [applause] [cheering] some of the worst vultures in america. [applause] they charge us, by far, the highest prices in the world for medicine. in fact, you want to talk about crazy? it's crazy. today, one out of five americans cannot afford to fill the prescriptions their doctors are writing. [crowd boos] meanwhile, the top three drug companies make $45 billion in profits last year.
[crowd boos] that's crazy. and then, on top of all of that, we spend far more per-person on health care than do the people of any other country. almost three times what the british spend, 50% more than the french, far more than the canadians. now, i have been criticized for something. so, let me say it as straightforwardly as i possibly can, so my critics understand where i am coming from. [applause] i believe that health care is a right of all people. [applause] [cheering] >> [crowd chanting "bernie"] sen. sanders: and that is why i believe we should move toward a
medicare for all health care program. [applause] now, one of the criticisms or attacks made against our campaign is people say, bernie is a nice guy. he combs his hair ever so beautifully. [laughter] occasionally, the suit he wears actually fits him. [laughter] but despite all of those attributes, he just cannot defeat a republican in a general election. [crowd boos] sanders: this is, this is a brilliant audience. i got to tell you that. [applause] [cheering]
so, let me tell you, let me tell you what some of the media may not know. is that is in almost all of the national polls, we beat donald donald trump, and beat him by big numbers. [applause] [cheering] and we beat him in almost always, not always, almost always do better than secretary clinton against him. [applause] [cheering] and it is not only national polls. it is statewide polls, battleground polls. to give you an example. just one of many. a poll just came out the other day in michigan, a battleground state.
secretary clinton was beating him by 16 points. we were beating him by 22 points. [applause] [cheering] in new hampshire, another battleground poll, we were beating him by 19 points. [applause] but it is not just polls. polls go up and down. but i will tell you why, together, if trump is their nominee, why we will defeat him, and that is because the american people do not want a president who insults mexicans and latin americans. [applause] [cheering] the american people do not want a president who insults muslims, one of the largest --
[cheering] [applause] sen. sanders: the american people do not want a president who insults women. [applause] [cheering] who insults african-americans. remember, don't -- [applause] please, when you think about trump, please do not forget that this was a guy who was one of the leaders in this so-called "birther effort." you remember that? [applause] and that was an effort to delegitimize the president of the united states because he was black. [crowd boos] the funny thing, president
obama's father was born in kenya. my father was born in poland. but nobody has asked me for my birth certificate. [applause] maybe it has something to do with the color of my skin. i don't know. defeat mr. trump because the american people know that umping together, tr divisiveness -- [applause] [cheering] know thatan people
community helping each other, supporting each other, trumps selfishness. [applause] [cheering] importantly, based on the religious teachings of every religion on earth -- christianity, islam, buddha -- the american people understand that love trumps hatred. [applause] [cheering] >> [crowd chanting "bernie"]
sen. sanders: now, a week from cany, the people of florida rolea profoundly important in transforming our country, and helping to lead this nation toward a political revolution. [applause] [cheering] we have already in this campaign won 8 state caucuses and primaries. [applause] [cheering] when theways do well voter turnout is high. and we do poorly when the voter
turnout is low. a week from today, let's stand revolution.itical let us be prepared -- [applause] let us be prepared to tell the billionaire class that they cannot have it all. come out and vote next tuesday. thank you. [applause] [cheering] there's a starman waiting in the sky we like to go and meet him because he knows let the children use it let the children use it ♪
there is a starman waiting in the sky he told us not to blow it let the children loose it let the children use it starman waiting in the sky he'd like to come and meet us but he thinks he would blow our minds ♪ announcer: during campaign 2016, c-span takes you on the road to the white house, as we follow the candidate on c-span, c-span radio, and c-span.org. donald trump spoke to supporters in jupiter, florida, following his victories in the mississippi and michigan primaries. florida voters go to the polls
next tuesday. whoever receives the most votes receives all of the 99 delegates. following his remarks, mr. trump took a few questions from reporters. [applause] [crowd cheers] donald trump: well, thank you very much everyone. this was an amazing evening. i don't think i have had so many horrible things said about me in one week. $38 million. horrible lives. it shows you how ridiculous it is. they were lies. it was really amazing to watch. and to get these kind of numbers, or they call them immediately, it is just something very special.
i want to thank the public. and i want to thank the people of michigan. i want to thank the people of mississippi. this is such a great honor. it is also really wonderful to have you at trump national golf club. it is a jack nicholas signature club. it is a great place. we have a lot of our members here, i see. [applause] we love our members. jack nicholas is a special man, and he did a special job. we have another special member. paul o'neill, of the yankees. paul, stand up. you originally come from ohio, right? wow. paul o'neill. you come from ohio? you endorse me? i love you. thank you, paul. thank you. wow. that is a great endorsement from ohio. [cheers]
thank you. oh, he is great. it looks like he could go out there right now. so, i just wanted to tell you that it was an interesting week and amazing week. i want to congratulate a lot of people, including the candidates. i mean, this is not easy st uff. when you are doing this, it is pretty wild. i must tell you it is very important as a republican that our senators and congressmen get reelected and we put a good group of people together, that we keep the people that are there. we have some terrific people. not all of them are on my side, but we have some terrific people. it is very important. one of the things i'm most happy about is the turnout has been just massive for every week. whether it is south carolina or any place, it started with new hampshire and it really -- iowa.
no matter where you go, it is records. the single biggest story in politics today. what is happening at the booth. a tremendous amount of people are coming out to vote. some states are getting -- one has 102% increase over four years ago. it is amazing. 102%. [applause] on average, you are talking about probably more than 50. millions and millions of people, whereas the democrats are down 30-35% from what they were. they are down. we are up by 50%, and even more than that. you're talking about millions of people. i actually think it is the biggest story in politics today. i hope the republicans will embrace it. we have democrats coming over. very importantly, we have independents coming over. they haven't done that probably ever. with all of these people coming over we're going to have something special.
if i win, and i get to go against hillary, polls are showing that i beat her. and some of the polls have me beating her very easily. when you take advantage, we will take many people away from the democrats and many people away that normally go democrat as independents. we are seeing that. we are seeing that. we had people come over here who have never voted republican or thought about it and they came and voted republican. and i will tell you another group of people i have seen. i will be signing autographs and talking to people. i've had many people say -- it was a beautiful thing to hear, mr. trump, i'm 67 years old. many people. i'm 67 years old. i have never ever voted before. i've never come close to voting before. this is the first time i will ever vote. that is so amazing. [applause] so amazing. and they do it with such spirit. so, it's great.
i want to thank the special interests and lobbyists. [laughter] [applause] because they obviously did something to drive these numbers. we are close to 50, 40. no, but i want to congratulate them because to raise that much money that quickly is a pretty good feat. many of them are my friends, but they have to gamble. i want to thank paul ryan. he called me a couple of days ago. he could not have been nicer. he was very encouraging. i have great respect for paul ryan. great respect. [applause] ted cruz is interesting. he is always saying i am the only one that can beat donald trump. you have to vote for donald trump and you are going to be miserable. you have to vote for me. but he is the only one that can beat donald trump. i've heard it so many times, but he never beats me. i mean, take a look.
meaning, he rarely beats me. the fact is we are going to do well. ted cruz is going to have a hard time with certain states. one of the things we do is we get up new york. i'm going to do great. we get to new jersey, i'm going to be great. chris christie is here someplace, the governor of new jersey, a great prosecutor. i watched what chris christie did to marco. where is he? great prosecutor. when he came and called he said i have seen it, it is amazing thing. many people have called it a movement. four covers on "time magazine." part of the movement is what i said before. the people want to be involved. when chris called and sarah palin called, and jerry falwell , jr. called, when joe arpaio called, when he calls donald trump is tough on the border. ok? i don't want to be tough but we
are going to be fair. we are going have borders again. we are going to have a wall. people are going to come into the country. they're going to be very happ y. they have to come and legally. [applause] mitt romney got up and made a speech the other day. no, it's ok. [crowd boos] no, i understand. he's a very nice man. [laughter] but i understand. it's hard. when you go through this and get to the final gate and you don't get over it, it is a hard thing. he did make some statements. i brought some things up because he said water company is gone. it is? i have successful companies. let me just explain. i will do this in two seconds. let me explain. i filed with the federal elections 100 pages. many of the press have already seen. they were all very impressed. i built a great company.
i have low debt. i have assets like this. this is owned 100% by me with no debts. [applause] mar largo.en that is a 100% by me, with no debt. i have trump international, where you were last week. 100% by me no debt. look at doral. partners with related jobs on the beach, gill and michael on the beach. massive buildings. no one ever talks about this stuff. many, many jobs in new york, including the city on the west side -- one of the most successful projects ever built in real estate. the bank of america building, a big chunk of in san francisco. 1290. many things. mitt got up and talked about the water company.
we have water, and it is very successful, and i supply the water for all of my states. it is very good. we have trump steaks. he said, the steak company. we have trump steaks. if you want to take one, we will charge you $50 a steak. magazine."imump let me see the magazine. said, it is out. i read 12 days ago. this is called the jewel of palm beach. they goes to all of my clubs. anybody want one? take one, my club champion. soldirline, by the way, i
tghehe airline. that is great. i actually made a great deal. complicated and in terrible times. the economy was horrible. i made a phenomenal deal. so i'm hearing about all of these things. by the way, trump university, we are holding it. when i win the lawsuit, they did and ad the other day, two or three people were staying, it is so terrible. the reason i didn't settle, all of these people, we sent their letters out. the reporters do not like to report it. the report cards were all excellent. beautiful statements. we love it. you can't settle cases when the person suing you has given you letters and tape saying how great it is. it was a nice thing. we are putting it on hold. if i become president, that familyvanka, don, my
well started up. and we have a lot of great people who want to get back into trump university. it's going to do well and continue to do well but we have a lawsuit where they are trying to get one of these class-action lawyer guys and it is ridiculous. we will win that lawsuit. i just want to explain. i do not settle lawsuits. it is very rare. once you settle lawsuits, it is simple. it is easier to settle. sometimes it is cheaper to settle but once you settle, i had a friend who was sued very rarely and everybody else in the same business was sued all the time. he said i never settle. the lawyers learn they don't see you. when i watch these banks settling lawsuits all the time, they get paid $40 million a year. a banker, and then he settles lawsuits with governments and other people getting billions and billions of dollars, i don't do it. when i solve the different things, and the winery, does he mention trump vodka?
it's the largest winery in the east coast. i own it 100%. no mortgage, no debt. you have to check the records, folks. the press, you have to check the records. you can see if there is any debt. it was john cluge's. he died. he built one of the great vineyards of all time. there is nothing like it. close to 2000 acres in charlottesville, virginia next to the thomas jefferson memorial. we are proud of it. they make as good wine as you can get in the world. i know the press is extremely honest. i will not offer them any. but if they want, they can take a bottle home. the members have plenty. we have one of the greatest. we have the largest winery on the east coast. and so, i just wanted to put that to rest. you have the water, the steaks.
you have the magazine, you have the airline. we are going to start it up. does that make sense? ok. [applause] i want to thank paul o'neill. that is a big deal. i had such respect when he was a yankee. he was tough. he just didn't make mistakes. we could use him right now. i love that kind of a guy. [applause] i think what this shows is advertising is not as important. it really is not as important as competence. there has never been more money spent on hitting somebody than was spent on me. between that and people saying things. and you know, lindsey graham goes he is a nasty person. all, he is wrong on the military. i have been doing this for 15 years. he is right.
we have been fighting a war for 15 years with this type of thinking. if you're going to fight a war win the war and let's get back to building our country. he has been so nasty. i watch him and say does he hate donald trump? i watch him and say if you think about it every single person that has attacked me has gone down. i don't want to mention names. they are out. they are gone. you can take a look at virtually every single person. we started with 17. we are down to 4. of the four they are pretty much all gone. ok? pretty much. they didn't do so well tonight. i'm not going to say anybody didn't do well. they didn't do well. there is only one person did well to night, donald trump. i will tell you. [applause] i mean, it was actually amazing. i was impressed. even megyn kelly said donald trump did well tonight. thank you. thank you.
that was a very unusual -- i was shocked to hear that. but that was very nice. and charles krauthammer said that. thank you, charles. it has been a very long time. he was very nice. thank you. i have been waiting five years, charles. but, it is true. every single -- i have had such hostility like with lindsey graham. he was at 7, he attacked me. we took them down to zero. he leaves in disgrace. he goes to his own state. they do a poll in south carolina. he endorses somebody else and the poll has me at 47, him at 2 , and he is a sitting senator. and then he went down from there. you know, i don't like to bring it up but i tell you it is in now. just relax, go home. everyone knows you take this big defeat and the problem is the press never calls them out. they go to this horrible defeat and then they start immediately on the attack. it is like he never ran and made
a fool of himself. i call people out. it is true, they have attacked me viciously. every single one who has attacked me is gone. i am very proud of that. [applause] what we should have for our country. isis should not be beating us. we don't win any more, we don't win with our military. we don't win with anything. we should be in a position where isis is dictating terms. they asked ted cruz -- lyin' ted. he holds the bible high, and he puts it down, and he lies. lyin' ted. he will say, i'm the only one that be donald trump. i beat him. but he doesn't say the one 4 and i've one 12-13. he forgets the other part.
you know what they say, the evangelicals -- in fact, i was watching carl say how great i did with the evangelicals. everyone was surprised. i'm a good christian. they are chipping away at christianity. we are not going to let that happen anymore, folks. [applause] i tell you. a lot of times i will say it at the rallies, we are going to say merry christmas again. the department stores did not put it up. we are going to start saying it again. they are chipping away at christianity and we can't do it. with the evangelicals, they get it. they get me. they understand me. i will be the best thing that ever happened to them. i mean that 100%. they don't like the way ted talks and they do like the way that he truly does lie. and actually, he lies badly. i was -- actually, little marco helped me a lot. [laughter] marco -- in one of the debates
he screamed across me. i have been in the center. never out of center. i always like an odd number. with an even number i hated it because we had four people so i'm not in the center. we should always keep it odd numbers. i have been in the center for every single debate. marco helped me a lot because he called ted cruz a liar. he said he is a liar. that is the first time. look, i know politicians better than anybody. they are liars. they are serious liars. more importantly, they will never get you to the promised land. they will not do it. they are controlled by special interest in the people that put up all this money for them to run. do you know how much money was spent in the last week on me? you know how many times they were asking, despite the fact that they are not supposed to be talking to their super pacs, how many times do you think marco rubio and ted cruz and all of them were calling their super pa's? is that right?
it is called life. talk to their super pacs. they are not supposed to but that is the way life for us. we are going to do something and clean the slate. i think we are going to do well in florida. it is my second home. i love florida. i love florida. i love florida. a special place. and i think we're going to do well. i think we are going to do really well in florida. now that i have paul o'neill's endorsement i know i'm going to win. i love ohio. i have so many friends. it is an amazing place. and we are going to have a lot of fun. we are going to be hillary beat herpeter -- badly. i think one of the things -- then we will take some questions, one of the things i add that is very different. we talk about the five and sometimes 6, the five states you have to get. whether it is ohio, pennsylvania, florida. the republicans, it is tougher
for a republican to win the presidency. like, by a factor of five. i have things others can't do. i have a chance of new york. all those delegates, upstate new york, i poll higher than anybody ever. they are in trouble up there. and they know i would have done things, and they wouldn't be in trouble if they had taken my advice. i will get michigan. i will get michigan. we are going to bring the car industry back. we are going to take it back. we're going to bring the car industry back into michigan. i'm going to win michigan. it is not even the question. the candidates are talking about running, it is never even a question. michigan is not something they even talk about. i will win new jersey, ohio. florida. i will win virginia. i have great properties in virginia. charlottesville, we just talked about the winery in virginia. thehe potomac river, one of
great pieces of property in the world. 600 acres, very successful place. a lot of employees in virginia. it seems when i have something in a location, when i am in virginia, i have a lot of employees, in florida where i have doral. adam scott, two days, how great was that? he is a great young man. the way he won the tournament, the world championship, it means you love this state. it means you have a lot of employees. you pay the employees. you take care of the education for their families. you take care of so many things. you just do well. so, i think i'm going to do great there. i want to do great in ohio. i really looking forward to it. i'm going to be working hard between the two. i have one of the greatest
buildings in the world in chicago. rated the number one hotel in north america. and i'm very proud of it. right on the river, it is a great building. maybe that is where we have our next news conference. maybe we will do it in chicago. so, let's see what the press has to ask and then we will go home and go celebrate a lot of victories. go ahead. cbs. >> [inaudible question] donald trump: you have to win. i know how to win. these people will tell you. have i won many championships? stand up. stand up. have i won many club championships? does trump know how to close? winning is winning. it is not easy to win club championships. no strokes.
i like to close things out. until the last person is gone, we started with a field of 17. now, we are down to 4. i really wanted to close things out. i have not even focused on hillary yeah. numerous polls have me winning, but i have not even started. i said a fewat weeks ago, because what she said was really wrong. in many cases, i have all night. you have to go on for hours. hillary is going to be very easy to be. she is a very flawed candidate, very flawed candidate. i think it is going to be a very, very easy target. if she is allowed to run. because there is a real question as to whether or not she is going to be allowed to run. if the government is going to do its job properly, she will not be allowed to run. [applause] go ahead, tom.
tom: [inaudible question] donald trump: i have no message for marco rubio. i have no message. i actually have a good relationship with marco, believe or not. he became hostile a few weeks ago. hostility works for some people. it doesn't work for everyone. [laughter] he became very hostile. you know what, it doesn't work for him. he was better, had he kept the original pitter patter going. but this did not work. sale little louder, tom? tom: [inaudible question] donald trump: part of the beauty, i have more money than all of them, put together times 20. i'm a businessman. why should i spend the money? i have spent probably 25-30 $5 million. you have the numbers.
in new hampshire, i spent a million and a half dollars. someone else spent $48 million. if we had abe nice country that works that way? [applause] so, the cnn poll came out, and i was 41. in fact, i was 49. second is 15 and 15. you know, i have spent less money than anybody else. now, the phony wall street journal poll came out. if you remember the poll from south carolina, it was the phony and most disgusting poll i've ever seen. i do not believe that poll. i don't know who is making of that poll. they should not pay that bill. i never pay bills when somebody does a bad job. they did such a bad job during the south carolina run. they had me practically dying in south carolina. the day before, i mean they did that with viciousness and vindictiveness. and it looked like i was in
trouble. then, i won in a landslide. the poll was wrong. the following day, they came out with a national poll that was ridiculous. nbc, chuck todd, they cannot get another one. nbc jumped on it. what is wrong with them? that's not right. cnn came out with a pull. 49, a couple of days ago. boy, did they turn out to be wrong to south carolina. go ahead. [inaudible question] donald trump: i was concerned with that until i saw it. i think it is better than any ad i have taken for myself.
