[applause] >> >> good evening, i'm donald trump junior. i'm a father of five young children from two-year-old chloe
to kaya who just turned nine. i'm the husband of vanessa, and amazing wife and mother and the sun of a great man. [applause] and tonight ian want to talk to you about the country we live in, the country in.children grow up for my generation, this is the most important election of our lifetime, one that will determine the future of our country and in turn, the future of the world. [applause] for too long, our country has ignored its problems, pushing them down the road for future generations to deal with. in business, i was trained by my father to make the top investment decisions today to ensure a brighter future tomorrow. we have actually started to believe that solving our great problems is an impossible task. that's why we need to elect a man who has a track record of accomplishing the impossible.
[applause] for the first time, parents no longer think their kids will be as well off as we were. the confidence in our leaders and the faith in our institutions. remember one thing, we are still americans. we are still one country. and we are going to get it all back. [applause] back that are than ever before. i know we will get it back because i know my father. i know that when people tell him it cannot be done, that guarantees he gets it done. [applause] i know that when someone tells him that something is impossible, that's what triggers him into action. when people told him it was impossible for a boy from queens to go to manhattan and take on developers in the big city, rather than give up, he changed
the skyline of new york. [applause] it time and time again, that look in his eyes when someone says it cannot be done. i saw that look a little over a year ago when he was told he could not possibly succeed in politics. yes he did. [applause] for my father, impossible is just the starting point. that's how he approaches business projects and that's how he approaches life. whether it's teaching his granddaughter how to swing a golf club or tackling the toughest negotiations, he is always fully committed. that's why the person who would never run for a -- office before stood on the stage 11 months ago in his very arena with 16 professional politicians and this week, that same man will stand before you as our party nominee for the president of the
united states of america. [applause] as a proud son and family member, it was one of the great honors of my life to be able to put him over the top in the delegate count earlier today. [applause] determination is why he will be, and president -- our next president and i know that when my father said he can fix the country, he means it. [applause] do you want to know a kind of president he will be? let me tell you how he ran his business is and i know because i was there with him by his side on job sites in conference rooms from the time i could walk. he did not hide out behind a desk in an executive suite. he spent his career at regular americans.
he hung out with the guys on construction sites, pouring sheet rock -- pouring concrete and hanging sheet rock you he listened to them and valued their opinion as much as often more than the guys from harvard and wharton locked away in offices away from the real work. he has recognized the talent and drive all americans have. he has promoted people based on their character, their streetsmarts, and their work ethic not simply paper credentials. to this day, many of the top executives in our company are individuals that started out in positions that were blue-collar but he saw something in them and he pushed them to succeed. is true gift as a leader that he sees the potential in people that they don't even see in themselves. [applause] the potential that other executives would overlook because their resumes don't include the names of fancy colleges and degrees.
those workerses in those qualities in people because those are the individuals he had my siblings and me work under when we started out. is own children's formative years to these men and women says all you need to know about donald trump. [applause] mba's.not learn from we learn from people who had a doctorate in common sense. [applause] guys who taught us to drive heavy equipment, one who worked his way through the ranks to become a by that an advisor to my father. we are as comfortable in a caterpillar as we are in our own cars. [applause] that those were the guys and gals that would teach is the dignity of hard work from a very young age.
he knows at the heart of the american dream is the idea that whoever we are, wherever we are from, we can get ahead, where everyone can prosper together. [applause] party also tells us they believe in the american dream. they say we should worry about economic inequality and immobility. you know what? they are right. but they don't tell you that it was their policies that caused the problem and it was their policies that have no accountability. [applause] they gave us the war's immigration system in the world, drives down employment and wages for hispanic americans, african-americans and everyone. thatmmigration system favors illegals over those trying to go through the process legally. [applause] and at times, even over law-abiding citizens.
it was bernie sanders himself who warned that a large tide of new workers keeps wages low and poverty high. the other party gave us public schools that far too often failed our students especially those who have no options. growing up, my siblings and i were truly fortunate to have choices and options that others don't have. we want all americans to have those same opportunities. [applause] schools used to be an elevator to the middle class and now they are stalled on the ground floor. they are like soviet department stores run for the benefit of the clarkson up the customers for the teachers and administrators not the students. other countries do better because they let parents choose where to send their own children to school. [applause] that's called competition. it's called the free market. it's what the other party fears.
they fear it because they are more concerned about protecting the jobs of tenured teachers than serving the students in desperate need of a good education. [applause] they want to run everything top down from washington. they tell us they are the experts and they know what's best. the other party gave us a regulatory state on steroids. dodd frank was 1000 pages long and it's already spun off 22,000 pages in regulations. imagine trying to digest all that before you even open your doors for business. that does not help consumers. it destroys small business in favor of big as nurses who can afford the vast number of lawyers and accountants needed to comply.
dodd frank is consumer protection for billionaires. [applause] we produced the thickest network of patronage and influence at any time in world history. it's composed of a self-satisfied people at the top, our new aristocrats. we cannot live that way in a longer. it's too risky. let me talk a little about risks. the other party is the party of risk. -- a lot of meant time with many great americans is spent time in the military and i know what's at stake. when leaders deposition of power, americans risking their lives for our freedom are less safe. normal daily, i get a call or text from a real american hero. his name is mark and i call him a friend. he was part of the security team at the annex at the conflict in benghazi. he was one of the men who received frantic phone calls
from his buddies of the compound , calls that pleaded for help, calls that he tried to answer. but calls that did not save his friends because secretary clinton ignored their request for help on the night in question and even in the weeks and months leading up to the attack. it was a tragedy and one that would be repeated were she to win the election. who is fit to lead and has the judgment to lead, who will take that call at 3:00 in the morning. ask him. , ifer yet, ask yourselves you are in issues that night, who would you rather call? let me tell you something about
risk. if hillary clinton were elected, she would be the first president who cannot pass a basic back ground check. [applause] it's incredible. hillary clinton is a risk americans cannot afford to take. she says she will issue executive orders to take away american guns. she wants to appoint judges who abolish the second amendment. just look at how effective those laws have been in inner-city chicago, city with a top gun laws in our nation where 70 people were murdered last month alone and where over 3400 american lives have been lost since this administration took office in 2009. those laws failed? because criminals by definition don't follow laws. [applause] rather than prosecuting real criminals, she would strip hard-working law-abiding citizens of the right to protect themselves and their families.
she will throw every possible obstacle in the path of safe, reliable, affordable energy produced in america by americans for american as this is an families. obstacle in the rather than beiy independent, our country will be forced to remain beholden to her buddies in the middle east. those are risks we cannot afford to take. and when we win, we will not have to. there is so much work to do. we will not accept the current state of our country because it is too hard to change. that's not the america i know. we will unleash the creative spirit and energy of all americans. we will make our schools the best in the world for every single american of every single at the city and background. [applause] we will put americans first, all americans, not a special class of elites at the top of the heap.
we will elect a president who will work with everyone to pass legislation that will make our country great again. a president who will give us a tax code that will free the american economy and and special loopholes for the wealthy. a president who will give us an immigration law that protects american citizens and give them jobs. [applause] a president who will repeal and replace obamacare without leaving our most vulnerable citizens without health care and do it without destroying medicare for seniors as hillary clinton has proposed. [applause] a president who knows we cannot simply delete our problems but that we have to tackle them head on. [applause] who will not allow a pc culture to put the safety and welfare of our children and our loved ones at stake. a president who will not bow and pander to nations that shudder at the very thought of america's existence.
concerned withe the safety and comfort of his fellow americans than the feelings of those hostile nations abroad who if given the option, would wipe america off the face of the earth. [applause] a president not beholden to special interests, foreign and a mastic, and one who funded his entire primary run out of his own pocket just to prove it. [applause] who will secure and defend the borders of the united states and appoint judges who believe that freedom requires a limited government. use theent who will not highest office in the land as a path to personal enrichment. who actually created real jobs and has actually signed the front of a paycheck and it does not just talk about it in theory. who has real people
families and livelihoods dependent on his excess and the success of his company for decades. a president who speaks his mind and not just when it behooves him to do so, who does not have to run a focus group or use data analytics to be able to form a simple opinion. [applause] saidays what needs to be and not just what you want to hear. [applause] a president who will unleash the greatness in our nation and all of us and will give the great men and women a great oyster once again. be --resident can only , myentor, my best friend father -- donald trump. [applause] him, we willlect have done all that. we that will have made america
great again, greater than ever before. [applause] thank you and god bless. [applause] one of the politico take on the speech convention goers also heard from donald trump's youngest daughter saying she emphasized the candidates softer side. here's her five-minute speech. >> ladies and gentlemen, please welcome tiffany tromp. -- tiffanytromp. tromp - trump. >> thank you all so much.
it's so amazing to be with you tonight and say a few words about my father and your nominee for president. please excuse me if i'm a little nervous. when i graduated college a couple of months ago, i never expected to be here tonight addressing the nation. i have given a few speeches in classrooms but never in an arena with more than 10 million people watching. [applause] but, like my father, i never back down. so here i am, little new to the convention scene but incredibly honored and very confident in the good man that america is coming to know. [applause] that with enough effort and determination, you can do whatever you put your mind to. but saying those words and letting them are different
things and my father has lived them. [applause] it's one of his defining qualities and i see it in action. whatever he does, he gives his all and does it well. his desire for excellence is contagious. he probes -- he possesses a unique gift starting with those closest to him, he has always helped me be the best version of myself by encouragement and by example. he motivates me to work my heart out and to always stay true to who i am and what i believe. that is what he does. he draws out the talent and drive in people so that they can achieve their full potential. that is a great quality to have in a father and better yet, in the president of the united states. [applause]
as a recent college graduate, many of my compliments are still to come but might takes pride in all i have done so far no matter how big or how small. i still keep all of my report cards dating back to kindergarten because i like to look at can see the sweet notes he wrote on each and every one of them. contrary to what you might expect, from someone who places emphasis on results, my dad referred often to the sentiments expressed by my teachers about how i acted in and out of the classroom. not even focusing on the grades themselves. donald trump has never done anything halfway least of all as a parent. myfather always asked about family in georgia to make your they are healthy and safe. andncle served in vietnam my 97-year-old great-grandfather served in world war ii. [applause]
i believe the measure of a person is revealed at the darkest times. for me, the measure of a parent is based on how they support and bolster you when you are down. a few years ago, someone dear to me passed away. the first call i got as i know i would came from my father. supporthis unwavering and care for me during such a challenging time, i don't know how i would've made it through. as far too many know, it is the small, loving acts that help an enormous amount in times of grief. my father is good with advice as you might guess. but he keeps it short and the takeaway is usually the same -- to help us find our own way and her own gift. , hold do what you love nothing back, and never let fear of failure get in the way, you pretty much have figured out the donald trump formula.
[applause] my dad is a natural born encourage her, the last person who will ever tell you to lower your sites or give up your dreams. i always look forward to introducing him to my friends especially the ones with preconceived notions because they made a man with natural charm and no facade. in person, my father is so friendly, so consider it, so funny and so real. my friends walk away with a glimpse of all that he is and all that he means to me of the strong, protective, kind, and during man i am so proud to call my father. [applause] i never pictured myself saying all of this to a packed arena but i'm grateful and fortunate for the chance.
i have admired my father all of my life and i love him with all of my heart. god bless you and thank you. [applause] >> one of the former for -- presidential candidates to speak last night was new jersey chris christie. here is his speech. >> please join me in welcoming from the state of new jersey, governor chris christie. >> good evening. good evening. , not only asight
the governor of new jersey, but also as donald trump's friend for the last 14 years. led by nott to be only a strong leader but by a caring, genuine, and decent person. i am proud to say that the voice of the people of our nation being heard in this hall tonight and those voices want donald trump to be the next president of the united states. [applause] but everybody, this election is not just about donald trump. it's also about his emma craddock opponent, hillary rodham clinton -- his democratic opponent, hillary rodham clinton. in the past few weeks, we have seen the justice department refused to prosecute her. years, weast eight
have seen this administration refused to hold her accountable for her dismal record of secretary of state. let's do something fun tonight. tonight, as a former federal prosecutor, i welcome the opportunity to hold hillary rodham clinton accountable for her performance and[applause] -- all right, all right, we are getting there. give me a few more minutes, we will get there.
here's what we are going to do. we will present the facts to you. you sitting as a jury of her and inoth in this hall your living rooms around our nation. you see, since the justice department will not allow you to render a verdict, i will present the case now on the facts clinton.illary, rodham now, she was america's chief diplomat, so let's look around the world at the violence and the danger today in every region that has been infected by her flawed judgment. but i will be specific so that you can render your verdict tonight on the basis of the facts. let's go to north africa. she was the chief engineer of
the disastrous overthrow of qaddafi in libya. after this strategy, their economy is in ruin, there is death and violence on the streets, and isis is dominating that country. so i will ask you this. hillary clinton as a failure for ruining libya and creating nests for terrorist activity by isis, answer me now, is she guilty or not guilty? >> guilty. chris christie: hillary clinton fought for two years to keep an off ofal qaeda affiliate this terrorist watch list. now what happens? because of this reckless action by the candidate who is a self-proclaimed champion of women all around the world, these al qaeda terrorist
abducted hundreds of innocent young women to years ago. these schoolgirls are still missing today. and what was the solution from the obama, clinton team? i #campaign. so let's decide, hillary clinton , apologizing for an al qaeda affiliate, resulting in the capture of women, she guilty or not guilty? >> guilty. fors christie: she fights the wrong people. she does not fight for us. she does not get the real threats that america faces. hillary clinton praised the chinese government for buying our debt to finance barack obama's bloated stimulus plan. she was so desperate for chinese cash she promised to oppose the provision in
exchange for the cash to finance a huge expansion of federal government spending. clinton, putting big government spending by the chinese ahead of good paying jobs for middle-class americans, is she guilty or not guilty? >> guilty. chris christie: in syria, imagine this. she called president assad a reformer. she called a sod a different kind of leader. there are now 400,000 dead. think about that. think about that. 400,000 dead. at the hands of the man that hillary defended. so we must ask this question. , an awful judge of character of dictator, butcher in the middle east, is
she guilty or not guilty? >> guilty. chris christie: next, next in iran, she lost negotiations that brought about the worst nuclear deal in history. let me be clear. america and the world are measurably less safe in this perspective because of the iran deal that hillary helped cut, period. to begin the biggest cheerleader for this agreement in the end. it will eat -- lead to a nuclear iran and israel will not be left safe and secure in a much more dangerous middle east. so hillary clinton as an inept negotiator of the worst nuclear arms deal, is she guilty or not guilty? >> guilty. -- s christie: next
[shouting] chris christie: next, believe me, we are not done yet. this is hardly complete. [whistling] chris christie: let's go to russia. she went on her first visit to the kremlin and gave them that stupid symbolic reset button. you know what i think that should have said? it should have said delete. she is good at that, by the way. [cheers] christie: and it should have read, delete, because she deleted in four years the safety and security that took us to
build in 40 years. next year, she said, our goal, america's goal was to strengthen russia. strengthen an adversary led by a dictator who dreams of reassembling the soviet empire? what extraordinary dangerous fact of judgment. ,o once again, we need to ask as a flawed evaluator of dictators and failed strategist who has permitted russia back in as a major player in the middle east, is hillary clinton guilty or not guilty? >> guilty. now, now we go to cuba. hillary clinton supported concessions to the castro brothers and got almost nothing in return for ending the embargo. she supported a deal that did not even require the regime to regime -- return a cocktail or to face justice.
-- cop killer to face justice. there was a new jersey state trooper murdered in cold blood, and he's glad to cuba -- he fled to cuba and is living there to this very day. how can someone live with their own conscious when your reward is domestic terrorists, with continued to safety and at the same time betray the family of a fallen police officer waiting for decades for justice for his murder? so let's ask the question, hillary clinton, as a cobbler of the brutal castro brothers, destroyer of a family of a fallen state trooper, is she guilty or not guilty? >> guilty. [shouting]
chris christie: now finally, her firstme in one of positions of secretary of state, she set up a private e-mail server in violation of national security. clinton aired more about protecting her own secrets then comparing -- protecting america's secrets. and then, she lied about it over and over and over again. she said there was no marks classification on her server. the fbi director said, that is untrue. she said she did not e-mail classified e-mail information.
says that istor untrue. she said all work-related to the were sent back state department. the fbi director said, that is not true. , the to hillary clinton charge of putting herself ahead of america, guilty or not guilty? >> guilty. i got another question for you. i got another question for you. after hillary clinton, lying to the american people about her selfish, awful judgment in making our secrets of vulnerable , what is your verdict, guilty or not guilty?
>> guilty. chris christie: time after time, the facts and just the facts lead to the same verdict, both around the world and here at home. in libya and nigeria, guilty? in china and syria -- >> guilty. chris christie: iran, russia, cuba? >> guilty. chris christie: and lying at home to keep it all covered up? >> guilty. miss christie: no genuine -- no genuineness to be found. we cannot vote for her. we cannot promote someone to commander in chief who has made the world a more violent and dangerous place with every bad judgment she has made. chief lawmake the enforcement officer someone who has risk american secrets and lied to the american people about it day after day after day. here it is, everybody. her, thet disqualify
facts of her life disqualify her. [cheers] chris christie: see, i can tell everybody agrees with this. i went to take our last moments to talk to all of you at home in your living rooms, sitting there tonight. you are the ones who will decide the selection. we have an alternative. we have a man who is unafraid. we have a man who wants to lead us. we have a man who understands the frustrations and the aspirations of our fellow citizens. we have a man who judges people based on their performance, regardless of gender, race, ethnic or religious background. i implore you, we don't need to settle for less in this election. we cannot reward incompetence and defeat. we need to demand more than what
offers fornton america, because we know what four years of hillary clinton will bring. all the failure of the obama years but with less charm and more lies. [cheers] [applause] christie: those of us in this hall and the people at home, it is our obligation to stop hillary clinton now and never let her get within 10 miles of the white house again. [cheers] chris christie: it is time to come together and make sure donald trump is the next president of the united states. [cheers] chris christie: i am proud to be a part of this team. let's go out and win this thing together. good night.

probably accept the nomination for president of the united states. pass national conventions next saturday night at 8:00 p.m. eastern on c-span. former presidential candidate ben carson on cnn this morning says he links hillary clinton to a prominent community organizer who once offered measured praise of lucifer in a book to provide perspective on what type of president the democrat would be. here is ben carson's speech from last night. announcer: please join me in welcoming dr. ben carson. [cheers] ben carson: thank you, thank you, everyone. thank you.
[cheers] thank you so much, thank you. thank you. , don't eat up my time. thank you. [laughter] i want to thank you all for the very warm welcome. i have to start off by saying one very important thing. i am not politically correct. [cheers] ben carson: and i hate political correctness, because it is antithetical to the founding principles of this country, and the secular regresses use it to make people -- progressives use it to make people sit down and shut up while they change everything. it is time to stand up and shout out for what we believe in. [cheers]
know i devoted , my career to studying and operating on the human brain. this remarkable organ defines our humanity. it gives us the ability to not only feel and observe, but to reason. when we elect a president, we need to use that power of reasoning to look at their history, their character, what kind of people they really are. it makes all the difference in the world for us. and, it is going to be so critical right now. we must resist the temptation to take the easy way out, and to passively accept what is fed to us by the politically elite and the media, because they don't know what they're talking about. but they have an agenda. now, we must also be wary of the
narrative that is being advanced by some in our own party, the notion that a hillary clinton administration wouldn't be that bad, the effects would only be temporary. you know? [booing] ben carson: that it would only last for four, and at most, eight years. they're not using their god-given brain to think about what they're saying, because it won't be for eight years because she will be appointing people who will have an affect on us for generations, and america may never recover from that. that's what we have to be thinking about. [cheers] you known: interestingly enough, we have to , start thinking about what would hillary clinton do if she was, in fact, the president. she would appoint supreme court justices, she would appoint federal judges, and that would have a deleterious effect on
what happens for generations to come. not only that, but she would continue with a system that denigrates the education of our young people, puts them in a place where they're never going to be able to get a job, where they're always going to be dependent, and where they can, therefore, be cultivated for their votes. this is not what america is all about this kind of deception. , and this is what we, the people, have the necessary obligation to fight. [cheers] [applause] ben carson: now, one of the things that i have learned about hillary clinton is that one of her heroes, her mentors was saul alinsky. [booing] and, her senior
thesis was about saul alinsky. this was someone that she greatly admired and that affected all of her philosophies subsequently. now, interestingly enough, let me tell you something about saul alinsky. he wrote a book called, "rules for radicals." on the dedication page, it acknowledges lucifer, the original radical who gained his own kingdom. now, think about that. this is a nation where our founding document, the declaration of independence, talks about certain inalienable rights that come from our creator. this is a nation where our pledge of allegiance says, we are one nation under god. this is a nation. [applause] ben carson: this is a nation where every coin in our pocket, and every bill in our wallet
says, "in god we trust." so, are we willing to elect someone as president who has as their role model somebody who acknowledges lucifer? think about that. [booing] ben carson: the secular progressive agenda is antithetical to the principals of the founding of this nation, and if we continue to allow them to take god out of our lives, god will remove himself from us, we will not be blessed, and our nation will go down the tubes. and we will be responsible for that. we don't want that to happen. now, donald trump, he understands this very well. he understands that the blessings of this nation come with the responsibility to ensure that they are available to all, not just a privileged few. this is exemplified by his willingness to take on the
