[applause] mr. trump: you have given me the
3:03 am
honor to lead the republican party to victory this fall. we are going to do it. we are going to do it, folks. we're going to do it. i understand the responsibility of carrying the mantle and i will never, ever let you down. too much work, too many people, blood, sweat, tears. i will not let you down. [applause] mr. trump: i will make you proud of your party and our movement. and that is what it is, a movement. recent polls show than i am beating hillary and for all of her many problems and tremendous mistakes, we expect our lead to continue to grow, and grow substantially. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: to everyone who voted
3:04 am
for me throughout this campaign, i want to thank you very, very much. [applause] mr. trump: to those who voted for someone else and either party, i will work hard to earn your support and i will work very hard to earn not support. to all of those bernie sanders voters who have been left out in the cold by a rigged system of superdelegates, we welcome you with open arms. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: and, by the way, the terrible trade deal that bernie was so vehemently against and he is right on that, will be taken care of far better than anyone ever thought possible and that is what i do. we're going to have fantastic trade deals. we're going to start making money and bringing in jobs. [applause]
3:05 am
mr. trump: now, i know some people say i am too much of a fighter. my preference is always peace, however, and i have shown that. i have shown that for a long time. i built in extraordinary business on relationships and deals that benefit all parties involved, always. my goal is always, again, to bring people together. what if i am forced to fight for something i really care about, i will never, ever back down and our country will never, ever back down. [applause] mr. trump: thank you. i have fought for my family. i have thought for my business. i thought for my employees. and now, i am going to fight for you, the american people. like nobody has ever fought before. [applause]
3:06 am
mr. trump: i am not a politician fighting. i am me. you're going to see some real good things happening. just remember this -- i am going to be your champion. i am going to be a america's champion. because, you see, this election is not about republicans or democrats it is about who runs this country. the special interests or the people. and i mean the american people. [applause] mr. trump: every election year, politicians promise change. obama promised change and it did not work out too well. and, every year they failed to deliver. why would politicians want to change a system that is totally rigged in order to keep them in power. that is what they are doing, folks. why would politicians want to
3:07 am
change a system that has made them and their friends very, very wealthy? i beat to a rigged system by winning with overwhelming support, the only way you could have done it. landslides all over the country with every demographic on track to win 37 primary caucus victories in a field that began with 17 very talented people. after years of disappointment, there is one thing we all have learned. we can't fix the rigged system by relying on the very -- and i mean this so, so strongly -- one of the very people who rigged it. and they rigged it. and do not ever think anything differently. we can't solve our problems by counting on the politicians who created our problems. the clintons have turned the politics of personal enrichment
3:08 am
into an art form for themselves. [applause] mr. trump: they have made hundreds of millions of dollars selling access. selling favors. selling government contracts, and i mean hundreds of millions of dollars. sec. clinton even did all of the work on a totally illegal drive it server. something about how she is getting away with this, folks, nobody understands. designed to keep our corrupt dealings out of the public record, putting the security of the entire country at risk and a president and a corrupt system is personally protecting her. that is not right. i am going to give a major speech one day next week and we are going to discuss all of the
3:09 am
things that have taken place with the clintons. i think you're going to find it very informative and very, very interesting. [applause] mr. trump: i wonder if the press will want to attend. who knows? [laughter] mr. trump: hillary clinton turned the state department into her private hedge fund. the russians, the saudis, the chinese, all give money to bill and hillary and got favorable treatment in return. it is a sad day in america when foreign governments with deep pockets have more influence in our own country then our great citizens. i did not need to do this. it is not easy, believe me. i did not have to do it but i felt i had to get back to our wonderful country which has been so good to me and to my family. [applause]
3:10 am
mr. trump: i have traveled to many of our states and seen the suffering in people's eyes. i have visited communities in new york, new jersey, pennsylvania, connecticut, and ohio, whose manufacturing jobs have virtually disappeared. an embarrassment to our country. it is horrible. i embraced the victims of illegal immigration. moms into dad's have had to bury their own children because of people who should not have been in the country. remember it, folks. remember it. [applause] mr. trump: i visited the crumbling cities and the struggling schools. i have seen our dilapidated airports, bridges.
3:11 am
i've compared them to other countries where we see facilities so far superior to ours, it is really not to be believed. hard to imagine what has happened to our country. america is getting taken apart these by piece. -- peice by piece auction and off rapidly. auction and off to the highest bidder. we are broke. we are broke. we are $19 trillion going quickly to $21 trillion. our infrastructure is a disaster. our schools are failing. crime is rising. people are scared. the last thing we need is hillary clinton in the white house or in extension of the obama disaster. [applause] [crowd chanting "trump"]
3:12 am
mr. trump: what a crowd, thank you very much. we love our country. we love our country. and we can turn this all around. we are going to do it by putting america first. [applause] mr. trump: that is the foundation for change that has been missing and missing for a long time. it is important to understand what america first means. it means on foreign policy, we will never enter into any conflict unless and makes us safer as a nation. it has to make a safer as a nation. this is the opposite of hillary's foreign policy, which invaded libya, destabilized iraq, unleashed isis and through syria into chaos and created the
3:13 am
mass migration which is wreaking havoc all over the world. and while putting iran on the path to nuclear weapons and making them a dominant power. they are dominant, and we have made them that way. you better hope i am president. [applause] mr. trump: on trade, america first means the american worker will have his or her job protected from unfair foreign competition. what is happening there is absolutely a disgrace. >> no tpp. mr. trump: no tpp. you are right about that. and what you mean is no pp. we are going, and remember this, we are only going to have great
3:14 am
trade deals, ok? we are only going to have that. we are only going approve, as some he just said, the transpacific partnership, which is a disaster for our country. almost as bad as nafta. signed by bill clinton which has just stripped our country of our factories and our manufacturing and moved to other places, in particular mexico. if it is not a great deal for our country will not sign it. it has got to be great for our country, our community, for everybody in her because believe me, we are all suffering take league and it is getting worse. on energy policy, america first means opening up america's great potential to bring wealth and prosperity to our own workers , including our wonderful and hard-working miners who have been absolutely and totally mistreated by this administration. [applause]
3:15 am
mr. trump: on economic policy, america first means having tax and regulatory policies that keep jobs and wealth in the united states. substantially lowering taxes for middle-class americans and businesses. likewise, regulation which is strangling our economy which would be brought down from its present insane level. we will make it very, very good for our companies, for our small businesses, and for people who want to survive and do well in our country. [applause] mr. trump: on immigration policy, america first means protecting the jobs, wages, and security of american workers. whether first, or 10th generation. who you are, we are
3:16 am
going to protect her job because let me tell you, our jobs are being stripped from our country like we are babies. the beauty of america first is that it brings us all together. every american worker from every background is entitled to the same benefits, protections, rights, and privileges. it is going to be that way. now, the people in charge say things cannot change. i am here to tell you we have to change. we have no choice. we have to change. we are going to put -- thank you -- we're going to put america back to work. we are going to make our own products. we're going to put america back to work. [applause] mr. trump: we are going to rebuild our inner cities which are absolutely a shame and so sad. we are going to take your of our african american people that have been mistreated for so long. [applause]
3:17 am
mr. trump: we are going to make you and your family safe, secure, and prosperous. prosperous again. together, we will put the american people first again. first again.

3:47 am
discussion on the impact that donald trump may be having on the latino vote this year. this is just one more of many interactions he has had with this banish community. -- the hispanic community. he may lead to more voter registration with hispanics. many hispanics have said they are saying it want to register to vote in order to vote against donald trump. whether or not that's happening on a national scale in significant numbers is hard to tell. we also have 4 million more hispanics who potentially could register to vote, so any surgeon registrations could be just because of more latinos available, or against donald trump. we won't know for a while. it depends on many different things. we have to do more polling, many polls indicate that latinos are following donald trump and are aware of what he said, are angry about it. it's unclear whether that is translated into registration numbers. the second possibility is that it might lead to more hispanic
3:48 am
immigrants who are in the country legally to choose to naturalize. why does that matter? when you naturalize, you are eligible to vote. many folks have been following a lot of the efforts to get latino immigrants to nationalize over the course of the last few months. applications are up about 5% over 2011, 2012. this is going through march of this year. while it appears that there is somewhat of an increase, it is unclear whether or not it will be one of the biggest increases ever, because you have seen surges much larger in previous years, not even an election cycles. me as wellr to whether or not many immigrants have necessarily responded to this, maybe they were going to naturalize anyways. maybe they just wanted to be part of this campaign. every election year, we do have a naturalization effort on the part of many groups. clear --he impact is
3:49 am
unclear to know, but the numbers are pointing to somewhat of an increase. host: what role did the hispanic vote play in 2012, and what population -- percentage of the population is hispanic and who potentially vote this time around? went for about 8% to 12% of voters, the largest share ever. they also had a record turnout of about 11.2 million people. that also is important because when you take a look at states like florida and colorado and nevada, latinos were very important in helping barack obama win those states. some might argue states like virginia as well are another example of where barack obama did well because of latinos. but you know certainly have grown in importance to elections, and were very important in 2012. how important they will be this year remains to be seen. there are 27.3 million hispanics who are eligible to vote, about 12% of all potential voters.
3:50 am
latinos are likely to hit a record share of voters this year just because there are many more , and we're also going to see a record turnout of hispanics as well. but that is some thing we see every election cycle because of the growth in the population. host: could they play a pivotal role? guest: they could play a key role, whether it is a pivotal role remains to be seen. like newin key states mexico in virginia, all states which are likely to be important for the presidential race. 2012 do we know that in that mitt romney lost the hispanic vote pretty wide gap between him and president obama. do we know that hispanic voters were energized to vote because of what mitt romney said about deportation -- self deportation, or because they were supporting barack obama? 71%.: in 2012, he got
3:51 am
mitt romney got 27%. we hadn't seen that level of support since the mid-1990's. however, was this a vote against romney or a vote for barack obama? barack obama did something in 2012 which was really energizing to the latino vote. through an executive action, he created the deferred action for child arrivals programming. aca is aimed at young people who came to the united states without authorization, who were living in the country without authorization but didn't come here on their own choice, they came with families. he created a program that gave these young people differ deportation and a work permit. it was good for two years. that seems to have had an impact on the latino vote going into the fall of 2012. that is perhaps part of the story as well, not just a vote against romney, but also a vote for obama because of this program. well we unique in that
3:52 am
had a record turnout of latinos, the largest share ever of the vote, their voter turnout rate was down from 2008. 48.9%, 2012 it was 48%. the growing electorate, but declining voter turnout rate. host: who want to hear from latino voters this morning. are you energized, and why and how do you plan to vote? (202) 748-8003 is for latinos. republicans call call (202) 748-8001, democrats, call (202) 748-8000, independents, call (202) 748-8002. the phone ones are open, so begin to dial in. a lot has been made about young voters this time around, especially in the democratic side of this nominating contest. voting for bernie sanders. makeupearch millennials almost half of latino eligible voters in 2016. how have they been voting in the democratic nominee contest?
3:53 am
democrat have seen hispanics voting in support of bernie sanders. those under the age of 35 years old tended to support bernie sanders at a level that was 65% of democratic primaries. when you take a look at the hillary clinton support, which tend to be among older latinos, it was the mirror opposite. that is something we are seeing among the general u.s. public. is not unique necessarily to young latinos. one of the stories that you will hear when you hear them talk about is they don't connect with hillary clinton. they find that there's something that she has done either on the honduran presidency a few years where the u.s. didn't do much to support him when there was a coup, that's one thing that's pointed to. another thing is some of the comments of support she has made for deportation of families or people who are in the country without authorization around the
3:54 am
other company minors from 2014. these two issues keep bubbling up everywhere i go when i talk to young latinos. often times they will say they just don't necessarily identify with her. they identify more with the policies that bernie sanders is proposing. host: in california, what role could hispanic voters play today? what are registration is up across the board, not just among latinos, but all californians. 30% of the electorate and what is so fascinating about, on you is, california is important to the provincial rates and it seems to be drawing latinos into the voter registration in a way we have not seen any wild. i think it could be important in determining the outcome of the presidential primary. host: we will hear from jim in kentucky, democrat. caller: hello.
3:55 am
latinos need that to get out and vote, and they need to vote for donald trump because he is going to make -- secure the borders. it -- the illegals are hurting you people, because they withoutking the law and drums rally, what they did is hurting the ones that are legal. when they do something wrong like that, why don't they get up and announce that? they need to announce that because they are hurting you. i know good people who are mexicans. guest: the latino vote is by no that is 100% in support of one or the other.
3:56 am
there are many latinos who support donald trump in many calls that have been done in this election cycle suggest the support for donald trump among latino voters is between 15 and 20% -- 15% and 20%. it also suggests that all latinos -- adults5% of hispanic thought that unauthorized should be deported, for when you are talking about the latino electorate, it is diverse with many points of view, but in recent years, you have seen strong support presidential candidates from the democratic party and strong support for immigration reform, comprehensive reform, and also support for authorized -- unauthorized immigrants and programs to help them. not all latinos are of the same opinion, there is diversity, even on issues like immigration. host: thomas. want the latino
3:57 am
people, don't let these democrats shoehorn you people all into one group, you are all individuals. if you are republican and like their speech, go with it, if you like democrats, go with them. if you like the libertarians, go with them, you are all individuals, do not live these people shoehorn you into one group and steal your votes. is a vote latino vote that has seen it support for provincial candidates actuate over the years. more thanou bush won 40% of the hispanic vote in 2004, and we have seen the hispanic vote while supporting democratic presidential candidates, barack obama's 71% was a recent high. there certainly is diversity of opinion in the latino community , never latinos
3:58 am
are in support of many of the policies that bernie sanders has been talking about, particularly around education, but i think you will see that latinos have the voting block and while they tend to lead heavily democratic right now, different candidates in the future make it different levels of support. it depends very much on the issues that these candidates are talking about, so while this year maybe one where we see strong support or a democratic candidate in contrast to donald remains to be seen democrats will continue this level of support and the future. host: hector in pennsylvania, independent, good morning. caller: good morning. hugo, i want to remind everybody that the reason why i am independent -- the reason why i'm going to vote -- i'm not going to vote democrat because i want to remind everybody, the democrats had the white house
3:59 am
with super majorities in the house and in the senate, and they didn't do anything or latinos, a promise the whole time, both elections. they lied to us and did not help us out at all, and i think we are being used for the wiferatic party, and my and i are both leaning toward donald trump, because we kind of like bernie sanders to tell you the truth, but we lived under communism, and socialism, in venezuela and we do not want to go back there, so we are leading towards -- leaning towards donald trump. friends, they have the white house, the senate and the house, and they did not do anything. they bring us to the line and pull the rug out from underneath us. guest: very good points and this is a point of contention for
4:00 am
many hispanic voters. in some of the polling we have done over the years, the democrats held the white house, the senate and the house when barack obama's presidency started, but there was no comprehensive immigration reform at that time. when you asked latinos who was to blame at that time, that only did republicans get blamed, but so did the democratic party and president obama. when you take a look at the way -- new ticket look at the ways in which the republican party has gotten latina members manyed the top positions, say that perhaps the republicans have done somewhat of a better job at getting latinos into top leadership positions, then the democratic party, so you are right to say that latinos should evaluate both of the parties. we see this hesitancy in our data when it comes to support
4:01 am
for the parties. when found that we found a declining share were concerned for the community. politico has this has that as a headline on a popular story, can you answer that? guest: this is a question that many people have been wondering about. not haveump does support -- majority support among latino voters, but he ranges anywhere from 15% to 30%. i would caution that we are still very early on and it remains to be seen where things will go, but most of the polling suggests his support among latinos is somewhere between 15% and 20%. there are some outliers to be expected, these are surveys, not the counts. there is going to be error. the: we are talking about
4:02 am
impact of the hispanic vote in this election cycle and it will be in california. 7 million hispanic voters in california, one of the six states that his voting, today and we will have coverage of the results and your phone calls, your e-mails, you're reacting to it. coverage begins on c-span, c-span radio, and c-span.org. daniel, texas, independent. caller: thank you for taking my call. not latino, but i am a naturalized u.s. citizen who loves this country. i do not agree with some of the comments trump said about latinos or other groups, however, the other day when i in theirlatinos protest or burning american
4:03 am
flags, it really offended me, because i love this country and i believe this country has done so much for me like every latino, so any people like this gentleman has to speak against that kind of attitude, thank you. good point, this is something you hear a lot of commentators talk about when it comes to many of the protest that have been around donald trump's rallies or his gatherings. you will find there is often a lot of latinos passively waving the mexican flag. for some people, that is seen as latinos, and for many i think it is a reflection of napoleon fact that they are of mexican origin, but a reflection of their mexican pride, as in they are of mexican origin in the u.s. it is hard to disentangle these things, but this is something you care a lot of commentators
4:04 am
talk about. host: latino voter, you are on the air caller: i would like to inform you or make the people aware that we have become a force to be reckoned with, here in america. i served for 15 and a half years force, i sworeir to protect and defend the constitution of our country, not just for hispanics or other americans, but for all americans, think. host: have hispanics shown up in full force? guest: and this is -- they have not and this is one of the key parts of the vote. oftentimes, the turnout rate hovers around 50% or less than 50%.
4:05 am
-- that gap of about 15 to 20 percentage points has been pretty consistent for the last 20 years or so, so while their ever-growing numbers of hispanic voters and hispanics are becoming more important and latinos are really starting to have an impact on all aspects of uslife, at the same time, the voter turnout rates could be higher. there is a lot of untapped potential. host: there are more eligible voters than turnout, why? guest: i think part of it is where latinos live. it looks like california it will be important this year, some latinos are getting out to vote. -- so latinos are getting out to vote. many latino voters are first-time voters and you need to figure out where to register and where to vote.
4:06 am
those factors alone make it more of a challenge to get out to vote because of geography and because of the relative youth of the population. host: sam in california, independent. how do you plan to vote? caller: i'm actually an amependent, in california, i not allowed to vote in the republican plan -- primary. i will likely not vote because i do not like any of the isdidates, but my comment when i see some protesters waving mexican flags, i am an immigrant, but not from a latino country, and i would not wave of flag from my country. i came to the u.s. more than a quarter century ago, and i think once you are an american, you should stick with the american flag.
4:07 am
theme many is a commentators are commenting on when they see protests. tos is not something unique this year, we also saw this back in 2006 when there were marches around comprehend and immigration warm. many of -- immigration reform. a lot of those marches had latin american flags waving. you saw those flights change from mexican, etc. to u.s. flights for the most part. there has been an ongoing commentary. there is oftentimes a lot of emphasis placed on where we are from, even if we are american and that is one of the american story. origin do this,
4:08 am
people of german or italian heritage do this. this is not something that is unique to latinos. host: atlanta, georgia, stephen on the line for democrats. caller: i wanted to make a comment, i feel like i got scooped by the person that is with you, because that was totally what i was identifying went and i wanted to add to that. i think that donald trump has lowered the level of discourse, and so i think you should not be surprised when you make group-based attacks that you have people coalescing as a group and kind of responding in that sort of group response. i had a conversation with my latino brother, and he told me he did not care about mexicans and that was shocking to me because everybody else at the table was like we all have this
4:09 am
sense of even though i'm puerto rican that if somebody makes a comment about a mexican, i will stand with them. in that sense, when you lower a discourse and make it about varying groups, you should not be surprised when people defend those groups. guest: a great point and when you talk to many latinos were not of mexican background, you many -- you find that many hold a view that you saw, there is a sense of solidarity with mexican-americans and mexican immigrants, over the course of not just this last year, but all the way back to the 2006 protest, this is something that has been quite interesting where a unification or latinos expressing similar points of view on a number of .ssues related to immigration
4:10 am
see a it looks like we pretty strong, unified voice when it comes to issues like immigration, at least among the leadership of these organizations. twitter,uestion from outside of immigration, latino policy preferences favor which party? about when we are talking were latino support is on different policies, let's talk about the size of government. latinos are supportive of bigger government providing more services. that is leaning towards the democratic party. likely toe more support a raise in the federal minimum wage, and so latinos tend to lean more toward the democratic party. on issues like abortion, there has been very little movement in terms of support for legalizing or not having abortion be legal, when you asked latinos about
4:11 am
abortion, you will find that they are split about their support for either keeping illegal or making it illegal. it is quite interesting because it is where latinos have not moved much and much of this is because of foreign-born latinos who are oftentimes catholic and have different points of view than us-born the tone -- latinos , but it become -- it depends on but on economic issues, latinos tend to lean more towards the democratic side. host: independent, latino, you are on the air. caller: i want to clarify something on the flying of the flags. many people fly the flag because they just want to be noticed for a group that they belong to, but they were flying the israeli .lag and i was happy for them
4:12 am
them, thatappy for is all i had to say. guest: among latinos, there is a lot of emphasis -- to emphasize where you are from. describe youre to origin, your country of origin, whether or not you are mexican, or whether or not you are american? most would use where they are from to describe the roots. guest: i just wanted to tell the man that we're going to fly that mexican flag because this is our -- we're like the
4:13 am
water and the rocks, and the trees, we are here, we were here already when the europeans showed up, they just came and the europeans came and took whatever they wanted and it did not -- with their manifest destiny, and they went ahead and colonized this land. they do not belong here host: we hear your point, we ask you, who are you supporting? guest: i -- caller: i feel the bern. host: how old are you? caller: 62. host: why are you supporting senator sanders? caller: we have people who have been here for generations, we
4:14 am
have our own thoughts and we have our own ideas and we have and it is aership, mix of different things. nobody tells us what to do, though it tells us how to be an independent people. why are you supporting senator sanders, specifically? caller: take a look at the word socialism. is dealing with the social issues in this country that need to be addressed because it is tearing itself apart. host: does that appeal to hispanic voters? yes, likesome cases, the comments i made earlier about bigger government and more services. the minimum wage, to address issues of income a foot -- inequality, i would also education, health
4:15 am
care and the economy, oftentimes top immigration as the issue for the latino community because the right number of children living in poverty. when you take a look at the impact of the great recession, many latinos lost a lot of wealth, so these issues, and issues of income inequality will resonate with the latino committed. host: -- timidity. -- community. host: who has the most vote? guest: alert clinton, who has won the latino vote in every clinton, whollary has won the latino vote in every primary. host: texas, and, a democrat --
4:16 am
anna, a democrat. caller: my support will go to hillary clinton. the last president we voted for was eisenhower. we went out and voted, you have to make a change. in texas, we have had three republican president who have done nothing for the hispanics, or latinos, or even the blacks, but we -- the one thing we don't look at and the latinos are not looking at, you don't go to the board,lections, school city council, state and local, we all, latinos and blacks, want to blame president obama. you had a difference to make a change in 2012, you did not go
4:17 am
out because you got all this negative comments, and for young latinos, the ones who say we want bernie sanders, in order to get free education, you have to eliminate some programs. unemployment, you have to get rid of maybe social security, they don't think it out, they bern.go for the you cannot get free education -- my kids don't have a student loan because my husband and i did not have credit cards, we tore them up, but you have an opportunity -- my grandchildren right now are in college, but i don't expect for them to get any we wantcation, and if to make a difference, then you have to start it at the state and local election. guest: a great point. great -- state and local
4:18 am
elections are just as important as national elections, and if you look at midyear elections, border turnout rates among latinos has been very low. voted.0 7% of latinos they are lower among all groups of americans, not just latinos, show up for the big presidential elections and not necessarily the smaller school board or other local elections in the very places where they might be able to have an impact on policy that directly impacts them. it is a good question overall, thank you. republican.lorida, caller: i would like to thank the caller from california that seemed to be saying that mexicans actually own part of the united states, and that he does not consider himself an american, but an mexican, i
4:19 am
guess or a descendent of mi ayans. talkis what republicans about, but when they say the same thing, they are called racist or anti-hispanic. this guy was telling the truth, let me back up and say that i moved to florida in the 1980's, and i used to 2 -- used to tell my friends that i thought that cubans were more american than americans and the reason i said that is because of their spirit, what they were doing, and i believe the cuban community in that was the last group began buying foreign cars. cubans in miami not only american cars until the middle of the 1990's. i have stopped saying that, ent of the spanish-language into our
4:20 am
culture, and i can understand why humans are hispanics want the spanish-language over the media, but it differentiates them. it sets them apart. guest: interesting points, and some of the speeches we have collected over the years so -- a latinos hauled a lot of american values, like hard work and they also believe that if you work hard, you will see the later in life and that their children will have a better life here. latinothat shows that immigrants are like other americans. on the issue of language, it is interesting to see some of the changes underway. while many in the united states you are beginning to see a decline in the share of hispanics who speak spanish at home.
4:21 am
among other latinos, this is particularly true. i think as we move forward into the future because immigration from mexico has slowed down, will start this the english on the rise and spanish maybe not all the decline, but certainly not growing as fast as it has in recent years. east petersburg, pennsylvania, independent. caller: good morning. i have a lot of respect for people who speak both english and spanish, and i would not spanish-speaking diminishing in this country. it is nice to be able to speak spanish and english and maybe,
4:22 am
we can start thinking more respectfully of the people who , because there are a lot of people in this country who cannot even speak copper english. the problem i have what that is we need to embrace each other and embrace our own culture and yes latinos should go out and vote in the midterms because those are the issues that you complain mostly about. guest: in reference to language, certainly, our polls have shown many latinos want future generations of hispanics to speak spanish, but the proof is in the pudding and there is a lot of pressure, pressure that is not focused, just natural focus -- just natural pressure were people growing up in the u.s. are getting primarily schooled in english, so they are growing up in an environment where english is part of their daily lives in a way that maybe
4:23 am
it was not for their parents, so well there is a lot of support among latinos for maintaining spanish or maintaining a bilingual presence, in reality, we are seeing things begin to change. , borngeneration latinos in the u.s. with u.s. foreign parents, you will that more than 70% are english dominant. ,econd-generation hispanics half of them are bilingual, so across the generations, you'll find that language will shift toward the dominant language in a particular country. in this case, english in the u.s.. teachispanic parents spanish to their children or try to teach them, but the children oftentimes are also getting competing pressure from friends, school, etc., to speak in english. host: ruth in north carolina, democrat. i decided to call when i
4:24 am
heard the comments about the flag and the kickback for people who presented the showing of the mexican flag. so much has happened in the conversation, i do not know how to stay focused. i am an african american. my ancestors are from africa and europe and many of them, i do not know who they are. on the issue of the flag, i think it is important that you keep your identity to a land base. one of the things that happen to us who came here not as immigrants but were forced, we lost our land base identity. a language was kept from us because we were separated on the
4:25 am
voyage, and if we spoke to one endangered, and then the drum was taken. being able to hold on to your identity in terms of where you originated from and your language is very important to me. , and in north carolina, we have some serious issues. today we are voting around redistricting for the judge. i have to get out there and vote. i will follow you on twitter, mark. this conversation has been really enlightening, and very wonderful. 62 and spokeas
4:26 am
about the land being taken and the mexicans, it is real, and i that'll trump and mitch o'connell and all of those who don't want to a knowledge, we have the fact that when this country came about -- . guest: thank you for the comments, there are a lot of interesting things around hispanic identity that we have found. a lot of emphasis on the country of origin, particularly representing and being proud of one's roots and you see this in young latinos who will tell you that parents say be proud of who you are and speak spanish, but when you talk to the parents , you what happened to them find that the stories are somewhat different.
4:27 am
and bet was the english american, that was the emphasis placed on them from their parents. there is a lot of emphasis within the community to take pride in who you are and of your background and i think it is something that is particularly true for young latinos. slowed, andon has with a new infusion of a large number of immigrants from latin america, we will see the story of latinos look like the story of other immigrant groups. a post-1965g in world, the u.s. is a place where diversity, ancestry, identity that -- is something that is a much bigger part of life, today. host: will you be watching election results, tonight? guest: i will, i will be at home. host: if you are watching tonight's results and you want to learn a bit more about the

4:29 am
thisi first arrived in country, i was saying to myself, who would vote republican, and it is because they have so many resonate with not us. i suited to see some of the cultures that there are vulcan party is presenting, and i could maybe swing my vote, not particularly in this election cycle. my question is, how many of the first generation latinos are actually voting republican and from second voting and third generation because i feel like you need to -- host: final question for you. across generations in 2012, you had strong support for barack obama, whether people were recent immigrants, the children of immigrants, or
4:30 am
us-born with us-born parents. we saw support for president groups.ove 65% for all the most part, he won the best majority of the latino vote. that was an interesting election in that there were few differences among latinos. one of the few differences was cuban americans and evangelical latinos. no related to network traditionally republican but even there, there are some changes underway. host: you can also go to the hispanic research part of their website to find out >> c-span's washington journal, live it every day with news and policy issues that impact you.

believe that americans succeed when more people share in our prosperity. in our prosperity. when more people have a voice in our political systems. when more people can contribute to their communities. we believe that cooperation is better than conflict. unity is better than division, empowerment is better than resentment, and bridges are better than walls. [cheers and applause] clinton: it is a symptom old but powerful idea. we believe that we are stronger together and the stakes in this election are high and the choice is clear. donald trump is temperamentally year on it to be president.
4:42 am
applause] clinton: and, he is not just trying to build a wall between america and mexico. he's trying to wall off americans from each other. when he says let's make america great to again, that is code for "let's take america backwards." time when the opportunity and hand it dignity were reserved for some, not all. promising his supporters an economy he can not re-create. write the, we want to next are in american greatness with a 21st century prosperity which lists everyone who has been left out and left behind

4:44 am
applause]d clinton: it's clear that donald trump doesn't believe we are stronger together. he has abused his primary opponents and their families, attacked the press for asking tough questions, denigrated muslims and immigrants. he wants to win by stoking fear and rubbing salt in wounds. reminding us daily, just how great he is. well, we believe we should lift each other up. not tear each other down. applause] we. clinton: we believe that need to give americans a raise not complain that hard working people wages are too high.
4:45 am
we believe we need to help young people struggling with student debt, not pile more on our national debt with the super-wealthy. we believe we need to make america that clean energy super power of the 21st century. not insist that climate change is a hoax. to be great, we can't be small. we have to be as big as the values that define america and we are a big hearted, fair minded country. we teach our children that this is one nation under god with godne nation under indivisible with liberty and justice for all.
4:46 am
not just for people who look a certain way or worship a certain way or love a certain way. indivisible. however,tion is not, betweene same old fight democrats and republicans. this election is different. it really is about who we are as a nation. it's about millions of americans coming together to say, we are better than this. we won't let this happen in america. if you agree, whether you're democrat, republican or independent, i hope you will join us. in just a few weeks, we will meet in philadelphia which gav
4:47 am
birth to our nation back in that hot summer of 1776. those early patriots knew they would all rise or fall together. well today that more true than ever. our campaign will take this message to every corner of our country. we're stronger when our economy works for everyone, not just those at the top. with good paying jobs and good schools in every zip code and a real commitment to all families and all regions of our nation. [cheers and applause] mrs. clinton: we are stronger when we respect each other and other and act with a sense of common purpose.
4:48 am
we're stronger when every family and every community knows they're not on their own. because we are in this together. it really does take a village to raise a child. and to build a stronger future for us all. i learned this a long time ago from the biggest influence in my life, my mother. she was my rock from the day i was born until the day she left us. she overcame a childhood marked by abandonment and mistreatment. and she somehow managed to not become bitter or broken. my mother believed that life is about serving others. she taught me never to back down
4:49 am
from a bully which turns out was pretty good. applause] mrs. clinton: this past saturday would have been her 97th birthday. because she was born on june 4, 1919 and some of you may know the significance of that date. on the very day my mother was born, in chicago, congress was passing the 19th amendment to the constitution. [applause] mrs. clinton: that amendment finally gave women the right to vote. i really wish my mother could be here tonight. i wish she could see what a

wonderful mother chelsea has become and could meet our beautiful granddaughter charlotte. of course, i wish she could see her daughter become the democratic party's nominee. [applause] mrs. clinton: yet, there are still ceilings to break for women and men for all of us. but don't let anyone tell you that great things can't happen in america. failures can -- barriers can come down. justice and equality can win. our history has moved in that direction slowly at times but unmistakably, thanks to
4:51 am
generations of americans who refused to give up or back down. now you are writing a new chapter of that story. this campaign is about making sure there are no ceilings, no limits on any of us. this is our moment to come together. so please join our campaign, volunteer, go to hillaryclinton.com,contributehel -- contribute what you can. help us organize in all 50 states. every phone call you make, every door you knock on, will move us forward. now i'm going to take a moment later tonight and the days ahead to fully absorb the history we've made here.
4:52 am
[applause] clinton: but what i care about most is the history our country has yet to write. our children and grandchildren will look back at this time at the choices we are about to make. the goals we will strive for, the principles we will live by. and we need to make sure that they can be proud of us. the end of the primary is only the beginning of the work we're called to do. but if we stand together, we will rise together because we are stronger together. let's go out and make that change for america. thank you, god bless you and god bless america. applause] ♪

[applause] you have given me the honor to lead the republican party to victory this fall. we are going to do it. we are going to do it, folks. we're going to do it. i understand the responsibility of carrying the middle and i will never, ever let you down. too much work, too many people, blood, sweat, tears. i will not let you down. i will make you proud of your party and our movement. and that is what it is, a movement. recent polls show than i am beating hillary and for all of her many problems and tremendous mistakes, we expect our lead to continue to grow, and grow substantially. [cheers and applause]
5:28 am
to everyone who voted for me throughout this campaign, i want to thank you very, very much. [applause] to those who voted for someone else and either party, i will work hard to earn your support and i will work very hard to earn that support. to all of those bernie sanders voters who have been left out in the cold by a rigged system of superdelegates, we welcome you with open arms. [cheers and applause] and, by the way, the terrible trade deal that bernie was so vehemently against and he is right on that, will be taken care of far better than anyone
5:29 am
ever thought possible and that is what i do. we're going to have fantastic trade deals. we're going to start making money and bringing in jobs. now, i know some people say i am too much of a fighter. my preference is always peace, however, and i have shown that. i have shown that for a long time. i built in extraordinary business on relationships and deals that benefit all parties involved, always. my goal is always, again, to bring people together. but if i am forced to fight for something i really care about, i will never, ever back down and our country will never, ever back down. [applause] thank you. i have fought for my family. i have thought for my business. i thought for my employees. and now, i am going to fight for
5:30 am
you, the american people. like nobody has ever fought before. [applause] i am not a politician fighting. i am me. you're going to see some real good things happen. just remember this -- i am going to be your champion. i am going to be a america's champion. because, you see, this election is not about republicans or democrats. it is about who runs this country. the special interests or the people. and i mean the american people. every election year, politicians promise change. obama promised change and it did not work out too well. every year they failed to deliver. why would politicians want to change a system that is totally
5:31 am
rigged in order to keep them in power? >> that is what they are doing folks. , why would politicians want to change a system that has made them and their friends very, very wealthy? i beat a rigged system by winning with overwhelming support, the only way you could have done it. landslides all over the country with every demographic on track to win 37 primary caucus victories in a field that began with 17 very talented people. after years of disappointment, there is one thing we all have learned. we can't fix the rigged system by relying on the very -- and i mean this so, so strongly -- one of the very people who rigged it. and they rigged it. and do not ever think anything differently. we can't solve our problems by counting on the politicians who created our problems.
5:32 am
the clintons have turned the politics of personal enrichment into an art form for themselves. [applause] mr. trump: they have made hundreds of millions of dollars selling access. selling favors. selling government contracts, and i mean hundreds of millions of dollars. sec. clinton even did all of the work on a totally illegal drive it server. something about how she is getting away with this, folks, nobody understands. designed to keep our corrupt dealings out of the public record, putting the security of the entire country at risk and a president and a corrupt system is totally protecting her.
5:33 am
that is not right. i am going to give a major speech on probably monday of next week and we are going to discuss all of the things that have taken place with the clintons. i think you're going to find it very informative and very, very interesting. [applause] i wonder if the press will want to attend. who knows? [laughter] hillary clinton turned the state department into her private hedge fund. the russians, the saudis, the chinese, all give money to bill and hillary and got favorable treatment in return. it is a sad day in america when foreign governments with deep pockets have more influence in our own country then our great citizens. i did not need to do this. it is not easy, believe me. i did not need to do it but i felt i had to get back to our wonderful country which has been
5:34 am
so good to me and to my family. [applause] i have traveled to many of our states and seen the suffering in people's eyes. i have visited communities in new york, new jersey, pennsylvania, connecticut, and ohio, whose manufacturing jobs have virtually disappeared. an embarrassment to our country. it is horrible. i've embraced the victims of illegal immigration. moms into dads have had to bury their own children because of people who should not have been in the country. remember it, folks. remember it. [applause] i visited the crumbling cities and the struggling schools.
5:35 am
i have seen our dilapidated airports, bridges. i've compared them to other countries where we see facilities so far superior to ours, it is really not to be believed. hard to imagine what has happened to our country. america is getting taken apart piece by piece auctioned off and rapid. auctioned off to the highest bidder. we are broke. we are broke. we are $19 trillion going quickly to $21 trillion. our infrastructure is a disaster. our schools are failing. crime is rising. people are scared. the last thing we need is hillary clinton in the white house or in extension of the obama disaster. [applause]
5:36 am
[crowd chanting "trump"] what a crowd, thank you very much. we love our country. we love our country. and we can turn this all around. we are going to do it by putting america first. [applause] that is the foundation for change that has been missing and missing for a long time. it is important to understand what america first means. it means on foreign policy, we will never enter into any conflict unless it makes us safer as a nation. it has to make a safer as a nation. this is the opposite of hillary's foreign policy, which invaded libya, destabilized
5:37 am
iraq, unleashed isis and through syria into chaos and created the mass migration which is wreaking havoc delivered the world. and while putting iran on the path to nuclear weapons and making them a dominant power. they are dominant. we have made them that way. president -- [applause] on trade, america first means the american worker will have his or her job protected from unfair foreign competition. what is happening there is absolutely a disgrace. >> no tpp. mr. trump: no ppp.
5:38 am
you are right about that. and what you mean is no pp. we are going, and remember this, we are only going to have great trade deals, ok? we are only going to have that. we are only going to prove, as some he just said, the transpacific partnership, which is a disaster for our country. almost as bad as nafta. signed by bill clinton, which has just stripped our country of our factories and our manufacturing and moved to other places, in particular mexico. if it is not a great deal for our country will not sign it. it has got to be great for our country, our community, for everybody in here because believe me, we are all suffering big league and it is getting worse. on energy policy, america first means opening up america's great potential to bring wealth and prosperity to our own workers including our wonderful and hard-working miners who have been absolutely and totally mistreated by this administration.
5:39 am
[applause] on economic policy, america first means having tax and regulatory policies that keep jobs and wealth in the united states. substantially lowering taxes for middle-class americans and businesses. likewise, regulation which is struggling our economy which would be brought down from its present insane level. we will make it very, very good for our companies, for our small businesses, and for people who want to survive and do well in our country. [applause] on immigration policy, america first means protecting the jobs, wages, and security of american workers. whether first or 10th generation.
5:40 am
our jobs are being stripped from our country like we are babies. the beauty of america first is that it brings us all together. every american worker from every background is entitled to the same benefits, protections, rights, and privileges. it is going to be that way. now, the people in charge say things cannot change. i am here to tell you we have to change. we have no choice. we have to change. we are going to put -- thank you -- we're going to put america back to work. we are going to make our own products. we're going to put america back to work. [applause] we are going to rebuild our inner cities which are absolutely a shame and so sad. we're going to take care of our
5:41 am
african american people that have done mistreated for so long. [applause] we are going to make you and your family safe, secure, and prosperous. prosperous again. together, we will put the american people first again. first again. we will make our communities wealthy. we will make our cities safe again. we'll make our country strong again. ladies and gentlemen, we will make america great again. remember. thank you. thank you.

6:12 am

[laughter and applause] sec. clinton: but as we look ahead to the battle that waits. let's remember all that unites us. we all want an economy with more opportunity and less inequality.
6:16 am
neverwall street can wreck main street again. we want a government that listens to the people, not the power brokers which means getting unaccountable money out of politics. we all want a society that is tolerant, inclusive, and fair. we all believe that americans succeed when more people share in our prosperity. when more people have a voice in our political system. when more people can contribute to their communities. we believe that cooperation is better than conflict. unity is better than division, empowerment is better than resentment, and bridges are better than walls.

6:18 am
code for "let's take america backwards." back to a time when the opportunity and dignity were reserved for some, not all. promising his supporters an economy he can not re-create. we however, we want to write the next are in american greatness with a 21st century prosperity which lifts everyone who has been left out and left behind including those who may not vote for us by two deserves their chance to make a new beginning.

6:20 am
not tear each other down. [cheers and applause] sec. clinton: we believe that we need to give americans a raise not complain that hard working people's wages are too high. we believe we need to help young people struggling with student debt, not pile more on our national debt with giveaways to the super-wealthy. we believe we need to make america the clean energy super power of the 21st century. not insist that climate change is a hoax. to be great, we can't be small. we have to be as big as the values that define america and we are a big hearted, fair
6:21 am
minded country. we teach our children that this is one nation under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. not just for people who look a certain way or worship a certain way or love a certain way. indivisible. this election is not, however, about the same old fight between democrats and republicans. this election is different. it really is about who we are as a nation. it's about millions of americans coming together to say, we are better than this. we won't let this happen in america.
6:22 am
if you agree, whether you're democrat, republican or independent, i hope you will join us. in just a few weeks, we will meet in philadelphia which gave birth to our nation back in that hot summer of 1776. those early patriots knew they would all rise or fall together. well today that more true than ever. our campaign will take this message to every corner of our country. we're stronger when our economy works for everyone, not just those at the top. with good paying jobs and good schools in every zip code and a real commitment to all families and all regions of our nation.

[cheers and applause] sec. clinton: we're stronger when every family and every community knows they're not on their own. because we are in this together. it really does take a village to raise a child. and to build a stronger future for us all. i learned this a long time ago from the biggest influence in my life, my mother. she was my rock from the day i was born until the day she left us.
6:24 am
she overcame a childhood marked by abandonment and mistreatment. and she somehow managed to not become bitter or broken. my mother believed that life is about serving others. she taught me never to back down from a bully which it turns out was pretty good advice. [cheers and applause] sec. clinton: this past saturday would have been her 97th birthday. because she was born on june 4, 1919 and some of you may know the significance of that date. on the very day my mother was born, in chicago, congress was passing the 19th amendment to the constitution. [applause]
6:25 am
sec. clinton: that amendment finally gave women the right to vote. i really wish my mother could be re tonight. i wish she could see what a wonderful mother chelsea has become and could meet our beautiful granddaughter charlotte. of course, i wish she could see her daughter become the democratic party's nominee. [applause]
6:26 am
sec. clinton: yet, there are still ceilings to break for women and men for all of us. but don't let anyone tell you that great things can't happen in america. barriers can come down. justice and equality can win. our history has moved in that direction slowly at times but unmistakably, thanks to generations of americans who refused to give up or back down. now you are writing a new chapter of that story. this campaign is about making sure there are no ceilings, no limits on any of us. this is our moment to come together. so please join our campaign, volunteer, go to hillaryclinton.com, contribute what you can. help us organize in all 50
6:27 am
states. every phone call you make, every door you knock on, will move us forward. now i'm going to take a moment later tonight and the days ahead to fully absorb the history we've made here. [applause] sec. clinton: but what i care about most is the history our country has yet to write. our children and grandchildren will look back at this time at the choices we are about to make. the goals we will strive for, the principles we will live by. and we need to make sure that they can be proud of us. the end of the primary is only the beginning of the work we're called to do. but if we stand together, we will rise together because we are stronger together.
