morning's washington journal but we are back here tomorrow morning. we would love to see you here too. have a great day. ♪ [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2016] [captioning performed by the national captioning institute, which is responsible for its caption content and accuracy. visit ncicap.org] >> thank you for joining us this morning, here is a look at what is ahead for c-span. president obama is traveling to atlanta. he will be speaking at the 95th convention for disabled veterans today. also singapore's prime minister is in washington this week on his agenda for the week our meetings with the president and a state dinner at the white house. -- prime minister also did
also delivers a keynoted dress and takes part in a conversation about the importance of the transpacific partnership trade pact. also coming up tonight, a discussion from this year's nation conference. a panel of bernie sanders supporters discusses the next step for the political movement at a form during the sanders campaign, including efforts to compete in local elections. here's a preview. >> a lot of people thought i would never get out of convention. i did. i won the primary by 19% margin. 19% outspent four to one. >> mike leigh, he has $1 million, which isn't a lot for a senate race.
itot of people don't think is competitive so there is not a lot of donations coming in. i think a lot of people are realizing -- i think the next step in the political revolution is we have to start supporting candidates down the valley. has just asom utah much power as a senator from florida or a senator from vermont. if we need to change our dialogue we need to get more progressive. the more progressives you have in congress, the easier it is ar -- it is to support progressive agenda. we want to have a $15 minimum wage. we need more progressives in congress. every victory you get is another vote. i think that is the lesson we need learn.
>> you can watch all that conversation from the conference tonight starting at 8:00 eastern. on saturday, august 6, c-span's issue spotlight looks at police and race relations. obama athow president the memorial service where five police officers were shot and killed in dallas. the men andama: women of the dallas police, they did not flinch. and they did not react recklessly. scottcer: and senator tim giving a speech on the senate floor about his own interactions with police. senator scott: for the vast majority of time is pulled over for driving a new car in the wrong neighborhood or for some other reason just as trivial. announcer: our program includes one family story about an encounter with police in washington dc.
people get defensive if they feel like you are being offenses. being respectful in encounters and requests if it is not a crisis or a dangerous situation, request versus demand, those things changed the dynamic a little bit. >> watched our spotlight on police and race relations. the british house of commons is in recess. 's westminsternt review took a look at whatever happened that took a look at what happened in the past few months. also the release of a british report investigating the reasons in the u.k. joined the u.s. the war in iraq back in 2003.
>> i will do everything i can as prime minister to steady the ship over the coming weeks and months. i don't think it will be right for me to be the captain that steers our country to his next destination. 2016, the morning after the night before. in a major upset for the political establishment, the eu referendum and a victory for the leave campaign. it was also not meant to be like this. david cameron had been triumphant 30 months before, winning a general election outright. before thee month queen had come to parliament in a time honored fashion to set out the latest plans for the government. governmentative
barely into its stride, having completed the first of its five years in office. >> the legislation will be introduced to prevent radicalization. our government will continue to work to deliver services seven days of the week. a proposal will be put forward for a british bill of rights. in england, further problems will be devolved. my government will hold a referendum on membership in the european union. >> moments there from the first minutes of parliament. at the time the bbc's executive -- james landau joins us now in the studio. may the 18th, how do you think prime minister cameron saw the script continuing at that point?
>> there was a huge sense of expectation. the referendum was about to happen. the queens speech was a holding pattern. there wasn't much detail in it. one or two nods to his legacy issues. and reforms ofs schools and prisons. those kinds of issues that in his head, he would have a few years to work on. he was in that mode. people in westminster and beyond clearly thought the referendum would be close but most thought remain would net it in the end. he had one referendums in the past and he could do it again. he is famously known as the essay crisis prime minister. blocking victory from defeat in the last moment and that was the general expectation at the time. host: the referendum campaign had been slowly climbing up the nations agenda. the campaign groups had been formed for the leave and remain
sides. brexit was the new catchword for those that won it to leave the eu. -- who wanted to leave the eu. the remain side never found anything to match it. >> jobs are dependent on us being in europe. host: that is when david cameron began to tour the country. one message on the leave campaign proved controversial. meanwhile in parliament, the former london mayor boris johnson was highlighting to a committee session his distaste for what he saw as interfering rules from the european union. >> one of the rules, the ludicrous rules that you cite to -- you cite, it says you cannot recycle a teabag and that children under eight cannot blow
up balloons. adult supervision is required in the case of the use of balloons by children under age. i have to say that in my household, it is only children under eight that use balloons. i do think it is absolutely ludicrous to have this kind of prescription. at the european level. requiresty directive -- children under eight can suffocate. it is placed on the packaging. it is not requiring or forbidden that it be placed on the packaging. it requires a warning to be placed on the packaging. >> you are administrating what i began the session with, which is to apartial -- approach
very serious question for the u.k.. host: chancellor george osborne and his team made their claim. as part of the campaign to keep the britain in the eu -- keep britain in the eu. house values would tumble. holidays would cost more. the average family would be an astonishingly specific -- number of pounds less off. but should the chancellor's claims be taken seriously, or were they exaggerated at the treasury committee? >> interest rates going up. house prices going to slump. i just wonder if you are strengthening or weakening your argument by going in for all of this stuff. >> i completely reject all that you have said because the impact on the economy has been supported by the bank of england, the director of the major critical institution.
host: leave campaigners said the regime was being used against them. he tackle david cameron over the use of government websites. i think you will find you cannot keep up that website.>> we will -- that website. >> we will look at our legal advice. raise the funds, expect a brief. moving on, the trade union. >> taking down a website is like saying you have to remove publications. >> we will move on. host: a former advisor -- we will be focusing on sorts
of things. we won't be publishing these furious numbers. >> but what will you be publishing? >> all sorts of analysis about international trade and how we think this will improve. >> do you not think leaving europe puts a risk on companies like hitachi? host: if remainders were keeping the debate on economic gloom, leave campaigners were concentrating on immigration and the huge issue of free movement of labor within the eu area. the arguments were emerging about p.m. qs. >> over 200,000 economic migrants came from the european union and the territory -- and yet the propaganda sheets sent out maintains that we control our borders. is the sheet untrue?
the truth is this -- economic migrants that come to the european union do not have the right to come to the u.k.. classic of the sort of scare stories that we get. britain will keep its borders, we have the best of both worlds. host: one other moment is worth recalling. want seems british people to leave the european union. will the prime minister remain in office to implement that decision? >> yes. host: not exactly born out by events. the comments held their own eu debate. >> it is about who governs us. if we get this wrong, we will not be able to organize and establish a democracy in this country which is what the people fought and died for. not just in one world war, but
twice. >> the pound will plunge. inflation will go up. we will be caught in an economic whirlwind. these people irresponsibly want to inflict on millions of our citizens. it is a scandalous position to take. >> there are no economic benefits. 92% of fishermen are calling for the u.k. to leave i say, let us throw them a lifeline. >> it is typical to see how even the most upbeat brexiteer cannot see that we could experience months of job destroying uncertainty taking this country back to the dark days of 2008. i never want to go there again. host: less than 24 hours after that debate, the referendum campaign came to a shuddering
halt. with reports of the stabbing and shooting involving the mp joe coxe. very scandalous information at this stage. according to the press association -- -- >> 41-year-old joe cause was the first parliament member to be murdered since the assassination of a conservative at the hands of the ira in 1990. the public was shocked. the brutal killing of an mp, simply going about his can'tis hisis constituents early -- constituency could simply happen in politics. the campaign stopped for three days. parliament returned for a referendum break. somewhere griefs is -- grief stricken. her seat was empty save for two roses. one white, one red. a minute of silence was observed for the murdered mp. >> colleagues, we meet today in heartbreaking sadness but also
in heartfelt solidarity. any death in such awful circumstances is an outrage and a tragedy. >> her community and the whole country have been united in grief. and united in rejecting the well of hatred that killed her. we need mr. speaker, a kind learned -- a kinder and gentler politics. we all have a responsibility in this house and respond -- and beyond, not to whip up hatred and division. >> i first met joe in 2006. she was doing what she was so brilliant at. working in a dangerous part of the world fighting for the lives of refugees. >> not long after she had her son, she came to give me a
briefing. the baby came also. she literally did not stop kissing him through the meeting. >> no one will replace her. >> i like to think it was the deep strong roots in her community that enabled her to grasp the world with so much love. >> i was in awe of joe. she was fit, beautiful, passionate -- i cannot ever recall seeing her sad or without hope. she once told me in oxfam that she did not do touchy-feely and i was being too emotional. and we needed to get on with that. and we needed to sort out the campaign we were working on. host: the public wondered at the shock of the mps murder. the referendum campaign ended its final days.
there was one big tv event to come. at london's wembley arena. a two-hour debate the leave and remain camps thought it out among jubilant supporters. >> if we leave, and take back control, i believe this thursday could be our country's independence day. >> referendum day, the 23rd of june was marked by flash flooding and torrential rain. a portent of the drama to come. , theolls closed at 10 p.m. counting started. the bbc's program got underway. in, aalf an hour
political editor noticed something about e voting trends in one of the places likely to declare early, summerlin. >> we expect to be for leave. it might be very clearly for leave. host: bit by bit the first , indications were confirmed. the night's story was going one way. >> the total number of votes cast in favor of leaf was 82,000 -- of the leave was eight 2000. leave was 82,000. >> my goodness, don't anyone go to bed yet. >> a lot of traders who thought remain had a good night are now selling out sterling as quickly as they can. >> we have had many more places where leave is doing better than expected. >> that is very good for leave. they are winning in a place where remained was expected to win. >> i have to face the possibility that leave will win this referendum and britain will leave the european union.
>> we have to face up to the fact that large parts of the country are turning away from both of the main parties. >> you can see southeast, northwest, yorkshire, east of england, and wales all going towards leave. them in the small hours -- host: in the small hours, the man who devoted years of his life was triumphant. >> this will be a victory for real people. a victory for ordinary people. host: as dawn broke the game was , up for the remain camp. victory lay with leave. the british people have spoken and the answer is, they are t. for many, it was a bit amusing moment --a bum using a bemusing moment. the sense of bewilderment was only added to outside of 10
downing street. >> i was clear about my belief that britain is stronger, safer, and better off inside the european union. but the british people have made a very clear decision to take a different path. as such, i think the country requires fresh leadership to take it in this direction. i will do everything i can as prime minister to steady the ship over the coming weeks and months. but i do not think it would be right for me to try to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination. host: david cameron with the dramatic resignation announcement. james landau is with me again. how much of a thunderbolt was it? -- guest: it was a huge shock. there had always been some doubt. david cameron at the time said -- i genuinely do not know which way this will go. there was a realization that it would be tight. they still thought they would
win. to lose and to lose as convincingly as they did was a huge shock to the government. this was not how the script was supposed to go. host: the conventional wisdom of referendums is at the government calls them when they think they can win them. and the floating voters always swing in behind the status quo. in other words the vote remains. guest: two points to that one, , david cameron was forced to call this referendum some time ago, well before the last general election. he was forced to do so to seal off the threat from you cap and to serve his party unity. had he not promised this referendum, many believe the tories would have divided and they would've been less likely to win the election. in terms of those floating voters and most people tend to swing to the status quo. that is true of most referendums but not european union
referendums. if you look at other, referendums, towards the end there has always been a swing towards the euro skeptic cause. that seems to be one of the things that happened here. host: did david cameron have any option at all not to have this referendum? guest: it would have been very difficult for him. this is one of those issues that has divided british politics for years. at some point, the british people had to be given a chance to express their own views in a fundamental and binding way. this was the moment that it happened. it would have been difficult for david cameron not to do it. other people say have the referendum, but you could have campaign in a different way. host: was he a sad man on the 24th of june?
guest: regretful. this is not how he wanted to go. he was being forced out of 10 downing street with a lack of the -- with a lack of decorum. this is the way british democracy works. there has been an extraordinary vote by the people. he took the view that he had not gotten the confidence of the people and he had to go quicker than expected. he told me before the election that he wanted to serve a full second term. it was not to be. host: thank you very much, we will talk again in a few moments. both sides spent the weekend after the results recovering from the shock of the leave victory. the commons regrouped monday afternoon. >> the british people voted to leave the european union. it was not the result that i wanted nor the outcome i believe is best for the country i love . but there can be no doubt about the result. leaving the eu is not the path i recommend it, i and the first to praise the incredible strength of our country.
as we proceed, i believe we should hold fast to a vision of britain that wants to be respected abroad, tolerant at home, engaged in the world, and engaged with our international partners. >> jeremy corbyn criticized the way the referendum was fought. >> half-truths were told. figureswhich key spent the weekend distancing themselves from. >> in scotland mr. speaker, we voted to remain because we are a european nation. it really matters to us that we live in an outward looking country. not a diminished britain. in scotland, we are being told from westminster, that despite the majority against leave, we are going to have to do what we
are told. we are going to be taken out of europe against our will. >> the voters of the united kingdom have demonstrated the value of the great principle -- the principle of democracy for which people fought and died. i can accept defeat but i will not give up. i have not my beliefs. -- not changed my beliefs. >> leaving aside the constitutional turmoil, the damage to the economy and the uncertainty that hangs over britain's place in the world, the leaders of the brexit campaign have an agenda where some people believe it is open season for racism. could i ask him also to say today -- condemn their he clearly those people who are almost implying that people all over this country that voted to leave the european union are somehow closet racists.
>> with the prime minister agree -- does he accept that the first part of that is that everyone has to accept the results of the referendum. whether they like it or not. host: the mood in the lords was far from conciliatory. >> the campaign is over, we are now in a new phase. that there would be no bad thing if the campaigning organizations on both sides, should shut up. >> i respect the outcome of the referendum, but i also respect many colleagues around the house. i am profoundly saddened by the results. i have given site about what the future holds for our country. >> whatever the result of this referendum, and our decision to leave the european union -- this country has not given up its values.
we are still the united kingdom. our values remain exactly as they were. >> on friday morning, i woke with a song in my heart. but also the words of -- in my heart. that is, he has put down the mighty from his seat. and he has exalted the humble and the meek. host: a few days later came the verdict of the archbishop of canterbury. >> the course of the campaign was both robust as it should be on such great issues but at times, both sides were not just robust but unacceptable. through those comments were created cracks in the politeness and tolerance of our society through which since the referendum we have seen an outpouring of poison and hatred that i cannot remember in this country for many years. >> how about this verdict from a
former cabinet secretary. >> after 65 years of public service i do not remember us an unholy mess as we are in now . it is an existential and a political crisis. host: david cameron argued that matters were out of his hands. remain campaigns and labor were agitated. >> we know that many millions of people in this country felt they were deceived by the exaggerations and lies in the campaigns of both parties and they now feel themselves cheated by that result in millions of people have protested. isn't it right that we look again at the possibility of a second referendum in the certainty that -- host: it wasn't just in the comments.
there are calls made for a second referendum. >> in the interest of democracy the british people must be given , a chance to vote on the deal. >> dear god, wasn't one of enough? i can't believe people would want another one. host: soon after that, it was confirmed that the parliamentary debate would be held on the issue of his second eu referendum in early september. it was a curious part of political symmetry. uniquely, there was turmoil in both the conservatives and the labour party. the apparent halfhearted support for the remain campaign by the extraordinaryeremy corbyn ledie spectacle of a mention of no confidence in his leadership passed by his mp's and then a deliberate series of resignations.
a part of an effort to force the labor leader out. but an embattled jeremy corbyn refused to resign. a few prime minister has months left. will he leave a one nation legacy and will that one nation of thebe these scrapping tax, the banning of contracts, and the canceling of the cuts to universal credit? >> i have to say, he talks about job insecurity. it might be in my party from interest, for heavens sake, man, go.
>> david cameron stepped up the mockery as he welcomed the mp. >> she may be in the shadow cabinet by the end of the day. >> the conservatives could not afford to gloat too much. they had their own leadership difficulties. candidates came forward as potential prime ministers. one declared herself like this. >> my pitch is very simple. i'm theresa may and i'm the best person to be prime minister. >> and the former london mayor, the always lovely boris johnson was assumed to seek the top job. boris johnson was knifed politically by the justice minister. >> what he did not have is the capacity to build and lead the team. >> the loss of support from a former ally -- led to the shocking withdrawal from the contest to be leader of the conservative party. >> in view of the circumstances in parliament, i have concluded
that person cannot be me. >> boris supporters were despondent. it left just one leave campaigner in the leadership est,contndrea. everyone expected a nine week battle between her and theresa may. and then came her interview in the newspaper and one more twist. >> i am withdrawing from the leadership election. keith: which left theresa may. she became the 54th prime minister without a contest. without a word of understatement, a huge amount of fallout from the eu referendum result. james landale is with me once again. it was curious that there was not any celebration for the leave. in fact, some of the key leaders left.
they did not seize the initiative at all. james: there was an old saying -- revolutions eat their own children. that is what happened with the leave campaign. remember, some members of the leave campaign did not think they were going to win. especially those that thought they had a chance for leadership. they thought they were establishing positions for themselves. they thought, oh, crikey, we have actually got to deal with this now. one of the great criticisms made of the leave campaign was that they said -- we should leave the european union but they were not clear about what would happen next. what kind of relationship would the u.k. forge with other countries outside of the european union? they celebrated that they won
the campaign but instantly, it turned into a battle about who is going to lead the party. the leadership campaign got underway. that took any precedent over what it means for britain. extraordinary that there should be two parallel lines of leadership. >> both were forced by the results. david cameron had announced his resignation because of his defeat. and also, jeremy corbyn's perceived lack of enthusiasm for the remain campaign was one of the triggers that convinced his opponents within the parliamentary party that they had to get rid of him and they had to act. here was a moment with a pretext or a reason -- to the labour party, we will be in favor of leaving the eu.
this is why we cannot carry on with him as leader. he is one of the factors that many labor voters did not come out to support the remain campaign. that triggered the labor leadership contest. >> nine years ago, tony blair left the job in a grand style with applause ringing out from all sides in the commons. the idea obviously appealed to david cameron. he had to bring to a close his tenure. the 30th of july saw his 182nd and final pmq's. >> i had meetings this morning. other than one meeting this afternoon with her majesty the rest of my day is remarkably light. >> i have been watching five prime ministers.
i have seen him achieving mastery of that dispatch box. unparalleled in my time. >> this session does have some admirers. i met mayor bloomberg in new york. everyone knew mike bloomberg. no one had a clue who i was until someone said -- cameron. we love your show. [laughter] >> mr. speaker, it is only right that after six years as prime minister, that we thank him for his service. i have often disagreed with him. >> jeremy corbyn praised recent remarks by theresa may. >> isn't she right that too many people feel their economy has been destroyed because the industry has gone. there are levels of high unemployment and a deep sense of
malaise. >> we have gotten on with it. we have had resignation, competition, and coronation. they have not even decided what the rules are. if they ever got into politics, it would take them a year to figure out who was going to sit where. the home secretary said many people find themselves exploited by unscrupulous bosses. let me say something regarding the democratic process of leadership election. i did say a couple of weeks ago that i was beginning to admire his tenacity.
he reminds me of the black knight in monty python's "holy grail." he has been kicked so many times, but keep saying "it is only a flesh wound." i admire that. ask, as no doubt, he will have some plans for a slightly more enjoyable and relaxed wednesday morning at lunchtime, nevertheless, he will still be an active participant in this house as he faces a large number of problems over the next few years. as no two people know what brexit means at the moment, we need his advice and his statesmanship as much as we ever have had. prime minister cameron i will : watch these exchanges from the
back benches. i will miss the roar of the crowd. i will miss the barbs from the opposition. but i will be willing you on. i mean willing all of you on. people come here with huge passion for the issues they care about. they come here with great love for the constituencies that they represent. and willing on this place. we can be pretty tough and test our leaders. that is something that we should be proud of and we should keep at it. i will will you on as you do. the last thing i would say is that you can achieve a lot of things in politics. you can get a lot of things done.
in the end, the public interest is what it is all about. nothing is impossible if you put your mind to it. that said, i was the future ones. once.as the future [applause] >> with that ovation, david cameron returned for the final time to downing street. reemerging a few hours later with family to say a few words to the waiting media, posing with his family on the downing street steps for the final photographs before making a car journey to buckingham palace to tender his formal resignation to her majesty the queen.
he had been prime minister for six years and two months. moments later, theresa may made her way to buckingham palace where she was invited to form her administration. returning from the palace, she spoke for the first time as prime minister. prime minister made: -- prime y: her majesty the queen has asked me to form a new government and i accepted. we are entering an important moment in our country's history. following the referendum, we face a time of great national change. keith: theresa may replacing david cameron as britain's prime minister. james landale here once again. i know it is early days, but how will history record the record of prime minister david cameron? james: along with brexit. however much you would like it to be something else that will , be the word that hangs around him forever. he will be the prime minister that called the referendum and lost it and as a result, the united kingdom left the european union. however it pans out in the
future, that is something that happened on his watch. yes, the second paragraph will say -- here is a man that made the conservative party electable again and brought the conservative party together and partially won one of the elections and then against the odds won a second election. he was a man that was very good at being prime minister. even his opponents concede that. he was good at doing the prime ministerial thing whether it was giving statements on grave matters and negotiating. he looked the part on the world stage. he did introduce some reforms. people will look at some of the education reforms he brought in, the development of that whole agenda.
there will be those bits. they will linger in the body politic. they will come back though to -- this is the man that on his watch saw the united kingdom leave the european union. >> 30 years have passed since this happened. -- 13 years have passed since this happened. the invasion of iraq by u.s. and u.k. forces to destroy the regime of saddam hussein. the arguments have raged ever since into the rights and wrongs of the war in iraq. the report had long been anticipated. it was 12 volumes. although its findings were strong, it did not have the huge impact originally envisioned. there had been a rush to war without peaceful options looked at and there had been too little
planning for the postinvasion timeframe. mps responded to the inquiry report. >> the decision to invade iraq in 2003 on the basis of flawed intelligence has had a far-reaching impact on us all. it led to a fundamental break down in trust in politics and in our institutions of government. the tragedy is that while the governing class got itself horrifically wrong, many of our people got it right. >> the lack of planning has been evidenced since in relation to afghanistan, libya, syria, and most recently with absolutely no plan whatsoever in regards to brexit. >> the then prime minister must take full responsibility for encouraging this house to take
the decision that it did with disastrous consequences and destabilizing the world. >> the horrors of saddam hussein were clearly documented. i think we were right to take part in that invasion. >> the ministry of defense including the chiefs of staff were not delivering the advice the government needed. elements of the foreign office had succumbed to a form of group think that leaves me greatly concerned. >> whatever we think about the judgment made, we should ignore knowledge that the bond of trust between the government and the -- this house and the public has been damaged by the decision that was taken in 2003. we now have an absolute need to put that right for the future. >> in the lords, opinions differed about tony blair. >> i have never believed that he lied to the british people and i
accept that he was sincere in believing that military action to remove saddam hussein was necessary as a last resort. >> to coin his own phrase, it is right that tony blair should feel the hand of history on his shoulder. >> if i was back in the same place, he said, with the same information, i would take the same decision. if that is left to stand unchallenged, chillicothe will have failed. let us be clear about that. that statement is unacceptable. >> those of us that have top-secret intelligence put in front of us, it is tremendously seductive. you want to believe it. you feel you are extremely privileged to have access to this information. then you need some wiser old heads around who can say, well, there may be a few other considerations that one needs to take into account. >> when theresa may selected her
line up of ministers, the changes were expansive and bold. not to say brutal. after 24 hours of comings and goings, virtually every job in the cabinet was in new hands. the appointment of boris johnson, the new foreign secretary. there was a new chancellor. a new home secretary, justice secretary. there was newness everywhere. some of the issues were long-standing ones like the big decision on whether to go ahead with a 31 million pound program. >> i call the prime minister. may: mr. speaker, there is no greater responsibility as prime minister then ensuring the safety and security of our people. that is why i have made it my
first duty to move today's motion so we can get on with the job of renewing an essential part of our security for generations to come. >> renewing our nuclear weapons is so vital to our security. does she really think the world will be a safer place? our nuclear weapons are driving proliferation. not the opposite. >> i don't accept that at all. i have to say that the honorable lady and some members of the labour party seem to be the first to defend the country's enemies and the last to accept -- >> can we cut to the chase? is she prepared to authorize a nuclear strike? >> yes. and i have to say the whole point of a deterrent is that our
enemies know that we will be prepared. and like some suggestions that we could have a nuclear deterrent but be unwilling to use it. >> jeremy corbyn welcomed the new prime minister. >> i wish her well in that new position. we are on these benches, despite our differences, have always argued for the aim of a nuclear free world. we might differ on how it will be achieved but we are united in our commitment to that end. >> last year, our conference voted overwhelmingly in favor of a nuclear deterrent. so, why are we hearing a defense of the government's measures now? also to policy is review our policy. >> it is obscene the priority of this government -- is to spend
billions of pounds on nuclear weapons that we do not want, do not need, and could never use. >> in the end, the commons renewed the tridents system. the massive majority of 355 votes. 60% of labour mps supported renewal. going against the views of their leader, your record and and the deep split in labour's ranks. strong start for theresa may. she was in her place for her first prime minister question time as prime minister. interest was considerable. >> border. questions for the prime minister. : mr. speaker, may i am sure that the whole house will wish to join me in welcoming today's employment figures which shows employment at another record high.
>> her government is already missing its targets on debt, deficit, welfare cap, and productivity. six years of government austerity has failed. the long-term economic plan is clearly dead. is there a new one? ay: it is ther m long-term economic plan that has delivered record numbers. he talks about austerity. i call it living within our means. he talks about austerity. actually, it is about not saddling our children and grandchildren with debt. >> in her speech, she also addressed insecure workers. saying you have a job but you do not always have job security. does that mean she is proposing to scrap the employment tribunal

a remarkable clear out of ministers and officials by theresa may, stamping her own authority and making it clear that she will not be cameron 2.0. james: she has made a clear statement that the cameron era is over. most people think that was a sensible decision. it is difficult because you store up a lot of unhappiness on the back benches. the camerons will be there watching everything she does and they will hold her to her words that she uttered on downing street. helping the poor. all of this moderate and centrist positioning. the cameron team on the back benches will hold her to that. if she does not deliver, they
will pick her up on it. that is the risk she was always going to take but she made it very clear, a strategic decision. you cannot lose cameron and keep osborne. she took the view -- team cameron had to go and she was quite ruthless. much of the top and the bottom of the government. taking of the cameroon's and saying, no, it is my team's turn. keith: what is it going to be like for british ministers when they negotiate the whole british withdrawal from the european union and they negotiate that with their counterparts in europe? james: it will be very hard indeed. for a start, we are not used to this process. we don't know how it will operate. it is down to the nitty-gritty. if we leave the european union, what of the regulations that will have to apply to our farmers over the way they milk cows, over the way they spray
their crops with various chemicals. what protections do we the u.k. government reinstate? what about subsidies for farmers? do we repeat the same amount? that is just some small thing. you think about all of the regulations for businesses. hugely technical. thousands and thousands of eu regulations will have to be looked at and worked over and the british government and the civil service will wonder if we should keep it, amend it, or ditch it entirely. that is a process that will take years. keith: thank you for joining us. what's again, parliament's committees have had a lively term shining lights in dark , places.

pounds on top of what he wanted to pay i am trying to block it? , that is laughable. it is laughable. and i think -- you should oh me an apology. i sat here for six hours. i have not been rude to you. i think i am a an apology. it's nothing to do with ego. >> sir philip green. politics is not what it used to be. the country has a woman prime minister for the second time and eight members of the cabinet are women. females are in key positions in the devolved legislatures, with three of the political parties in scotland are led by women. northern ireland is led by a woman, and wales led by leanne wood. these days male election , victories are a newsworthy event. choose theent to next beaker, hold the front page, it was a man. the former cabinet minister, norman fowler. >> i would like to thank the house very sincerely for the exceptional support they have given me and to say that i will

hey, let me do a couple of thank you's. i want to thank roger g hers. vietnam vet. one thing that we showed is what a patriotic, upbeat, optimistic, pro-america party we are in the democratic party. the greatys show is beauty of our country. wasn't philadelphia so different than that dark and twisted convention the republicans put on the week before? the mayor here and the congresswoman and governor strickland -- it's going to be a fantastic u.s. senator. give them a round of applause. and i really mean that, what we said about philadelphia. i know we felt the hospitality
was great, the spirit of our democratic family was great and it was such a contrast with kind vision that twisted donald trump says is just a tool or through donald trump's head. we did a great us to our. we went through pennsylvania and ohio, talking about job creation, hillary clinton's plans and what we will do in her administration. it's great to finish strong and columbus. i want to introduce you to my wife, my wife of 32 years.
she was the secretary of education of virginia until last monday until i was asked to be on the campaign. she stepped down from her position and having her on the road with me makes me a very happy warrior. is he is a great public servant. and then we have also had the up until the events this morning of having another travel buddy on the bus to her. president bill clinton. now that is pretty cool. that is pretty cool. i said yesterday that i have been in politics for 22 years, mr. mayor, city council member and mayor before i was a governor and senator, started at the local level. i thought i knew something about politics after 22 years, but spending about 15 minutes on a bus with bill clinton, you
realize, man, there is a guy that knows some things about politics. it was really exciting for me that i could be on this tour. thank you. thank you. mr. kaine: but i will also say, i am just so proud to be on this ticket. i am proud hillary clinton, out of the number of spectacular people that could have been her , would mate, asked, tim you do this with me? i am so humbled about it. i am so excited to work with somebody that president obama said his get to be the best qualified person to be nominee for president of the united states in a very long time. but i am so proud and we are having fun. but i will go on with more --
one more reason i'm excited about this. one more reason. things aboutple the race and our opponent than i will introduce it would clinton. a historic election. this is a historic nomination. i was standing, i was standing on the podium thursday night after haley did her acceptance speech. kathy, put her arm on my shoulders and said, "this is the happiest moment of my life." there was a lot of reasons, a lot of reasons she was saying that, but i will to you one of the reasons, we were making history not just by nominating the best qualified major party nominee in a very long time, if ever, but we were also nominating the first woman to be president ever. mr. kaine: here is what i
thought of. here is what i thought of. how many strong women have helped me and 22 years in politics, then campaign managers may, campaign staffers, volunteers, members of my cabinet, supporting me so i can have a great political career? my wife supporting me so i could have a great political career just like i supported her in her public service career, but if you look at that whole arch of american history, how many strong women have stood behind strong men leaders? i think it is time for the men to stand up and support a strong woman president of this country -- of this country. "hillary"]ting kaine: can i be honest and tell you one bad thing about this week.
i have to be honest. before i was on the ticket, donald trump did not have any reason to call me a name. when i got on the ticket, he had to figure out how to call me a name. the morning after i became the nominee, he did a press conference and he took a mic and he said, "tim kaine was a really lousy governor of new jersey." i am a sensitive guy. i do not like criticism. i felt kind of bad until i realized, wait, i was never governor of new jersey. i have never even lived in new jersey. look, give donald a break. he is new to this. [crowd booing] you know. the basic civics, their 50 states. virginia is different than new jersey. i am sure that is in the briefing book, a few pages later. he is not there yet. look, we are on this tour and we having fun but it is about something really serious, about
the american economy and how to grow it because hillary clinton and donald trump have very different plans. i like to make things simple, so i'm going to make it simple. would you rather have a your fired president or a your hired president? i thought so. i predict this. after donald trump loses this race and after everybody has forgotten virtually everything about his candidacy, the one thing people will remember about donald trump is two words, "you are fired." hillary will be a "you are hired president." she will talk about what we have been talking about in learning about on the trail. the american economy was in a
freefall at the end of the bush administration and president obama has pulled it out and we are climbing again but we have a long way to go, a long way to go because we need to grow jobs and make sure that the growth is not just for a few, but that growth is shared by all. and so to do that hillary has a , very dynamic plan about how to grow our economy and grow it strong. it involves skills training, involves major investment in advanced manufacturing, infrastructure, debt-free college so that people can get the skills they need to be successful. it involves, you know, things that should be just basic like raising the federal minimum wage so you cannot work full-time and be below the poverty level. it also means making sure that women are entitled to equal pay
for equal work. now these are the basics of the hillary clinton your hired friend -- your hired plan. now, these are the basics of the hillary clinton, you are hired plan. guess what? she is respectful enough of y'all -- wait, do you use that in columbus -- she is respectful enough to share the details. you go on hillary clinton.com, one click of the mouse and you can see how she will do it, how she will pay for it and how you will benefit. she said this the other night at the convention and i liked this line. she said, i am going to give you the details. some people criticize the details. i do not want to know about the details, but here is what she said, as it is about your kid, your family, if it is about your business, it is not a detail, it is a big deal. it is a big deal. she is going to share the plan. go over to the other side of the aisle. donald trump, no plans, folks. no plans. i mean, he talked for 75 minutes of the convention criticizing hillary clinton and made a lot of big, broad claims without any substance behind them.
in effect, if you ask donald a question, he will say he is going to create jobs or we are all going to get rich or beat isis or make a wall and make mexico pay for it. then you ask how and he just says believe me. believe me. believe me. here is the problem. a lot of people have believed donald trump and have gotten stiffed, gotten burnt. hillary clinton and i both grew up in families where our dads ran businesses. so we're used to businesses. a whole lot of small businesses have done deals with donald
trump to help him build golf courses casino, only to get stiffed after the job was done. thai did the work, they were entitled to the pay. but donald and his lawyers said we're not paying you, sue us, we'll run you into the ground. they got hurt and many of them lost their businesses because they believed donald trump. retirees in florida. hundreds of them gave trump money to build them condos and they never got the condos and they never got the money. they got burned and lost part of their savings because they believed donald trump. students. i know hey look columbus is a big town for students. right? big town for college. so young people like people who want to advance donald trump said give me a bunch of doug and be part of my trump university and i will guarantee you will have a path paid for success and
they gave him money and they ended up with a certificate that wasn't worth the paper it was written on. they got ripped off all because they believed donald trump. and so now he's just saying i'll do all these things believe me. but we are just too great a nation to believe a guy who has ripped off virtually everybody he's come in contacted with. we cannot put a nation as great as the united states in the hands of an empty promising self-promoting one-man wrecking crew. we just can't do it, folks. we just can't do it. so i want to ask you a question and i hope you'll ask everybody this question and that is this. when donald trump says believe me, does anybody here i mean even come close to believing
this guy? do you believe even one word of what he says? that's my attitude. not one word. not one word, folks. not one word. and that's what we've got to do on this trail, convince other that is they shouldn't be so gullible to fall for trump's no details, promises, either. look, now it is my great pleasure. we've had fun on these couple of days and i hope you will keep us in your thoughts and encouragement and prayers. it's 100 days to election day. ann and i get the virtue of just joining with like 105 days left. this has been like an 18-month or multiyear effort on hillary clinton's side. but it's going to be tough. it is going to be challenging. but nothing important in life is meant to be easy.
but democrats know tough, folks and ohioans know tough. so let me introduce you to a great leader, a tough leader, a compassionate leader, and the next president of the united states, my friend hillary clinton. [cheers and applause] ! . clinton: hello, columbus i am so happy to be here this beautiful glorious, ohio afternoon. i am so glad to be making this journey with senator tim kaine and ann holden because they understand what public service is all about. they are committed to doing
everything they can. and tim has starting on city council, mayor lieutenant , governor, governor and now senator to give people the best chance they can to get ahead and stay ahead. so please join me again in thanking senator tim kaine. [cheers and applause] ms. clinton: and mayor, we're happy to be here in your beautiful city in columbus. and i don't know how you felt , but, boy, i thought your congresswoman really knocked it out of the park at the convention. i think it might have been on the very first night she was sitting in the box with my husband sitting right next to him and all of a sudden twitter
was going crazy, who is that beautiful, well-dressed elegant woman sitting next to bill clinton? and finally somebody said that's the congresswoman from ohio. and i was so proud to have her support. now, there's somebody else with us, somebody very special to us. somebody special to ohio. your former governor ted strickland. i've had the great privilege of knowing ted for decades. i've seen how hard he has worked.
he got dealt a bad hand being governor during the republican generated great recession and doing everything he could to try to help ohioance get through that. well, now he's running to represent you in the senate. i think your other great senator sherrod brown deserves a partner. every time sherrod brown stands up and fights for you, he needs a partner to do the same and not have his vote canceled out. so do everything you can to send ted strickland to the senate in november. tim's right, we've had a great time. how many of you watched the convention? i was so proud to see democrats standing up and speaking about what we can do together to make sure the economy works for everyone. not just those at the top.
taking on the special interests that have benefited from a system that is rigged in their favor. so when we finish those four days i was thrilled to get on that bus in philadelphia and hode out across pennsylvania and into ohio. and along the way we stopped at factories where hard-working americans are still making things. we stopped at a factry in johnstown, pennsylvania where business and management works with the steel workers who are there represented by their union fighting hard to have more good jobs. they told me how they are bringing jobs back from china, how they are creating more opportunity.
that is the american story that we are going to be telling during this campaign, during these last 100 days. i have specific plans about how we're going to get the economy working for everybody. we are going to make the biggest investment in new jobs since world war ii. and put millions of americans to work. and here's how we're going to do it. we're going to invest in infrastructure. our roads, our brudges, our tunnels, our ports, our airports, our water systems. but not just what you can physically see. we need a new electric grid to be able to take and distribute
all the clean renewable energy we're going to be producing. and we need to finish the job of connecting every home and business in america to high-speed broadband internet access. i talk a lot about building our economy, getting jobs for everyone. well, it's a little heartbreaking to learn as i did when i was talking to some teachers a few days ago -- and i love teachers. and the teachers told me they had just had a national survey done and learned that 70% of the teachers in america assigned homework to their students that required kids to go on the internet. now, that makes sense. we're living in the information age. we want more people, particularly young people to
help create that future so we have even more opportunities. but here's the problem. 5 million kids in america don't have access at home to high-speed internet. so already they're being left behind. so we've got to build america's competition, build america's opportunities. and the plans that we've laid out will do just that. i also believe we need to do more for small business. 98% of the businesses in ohio are small businesses. let's have greater access to credit. let's be sure we cut through and eliminate any of the red tape and the other obstacles you -- obstacles. you heard tim say his dad ran a small business. so did mine.
my father ran a plant where fabrics were printed with designs for draperies. i was there helping him. but i know how hard he worked. and i am personally sickened when i hear the stories about donald trump refusing to pay plumbers and painters and marble installers and glass installers and small businesses who have done the work. i think about my dad. he worked hard. what would have happened if the customers he had after he printed those drapery fabrics made them into the draperies loaded them into his car, delivered them, helped to install them, and somebody like donald trump said we're not paying you. my dad would have said what do my dad would have said what do you mean? i did what i was contracted to do. but to person after person and
business after business donald trump said i don't care. it's not because he couldn't pay. he wouldn't pay them. he drove businesses into bankruptcy. in addition to taking bankruptcy himself six times. my friends, that's not how we do business in america. if you do the work, you deserve the pay. and we're going to stand up and make that case against donald trump. the other thing about trump -- you've heard him. he says america first. that's great. sounds great, doesn't it? as if we wouldn't put america first. that's sure what i believe. he says it. but then everything he makes he makes somewhere else. he makes dress shirts in china, not brooklyn, new york.
he makes furniture in turkey, not cleveland, ohio. he makes bar ware in slovenia, not jackson, ohio. and he goes around saying he wants to put america first and america workers first. and then just today we learned, once again, he's asked for visas to employ foreign workers at his country clubs because he says he can't find any american workers. shame on you, donald trump. shame on you. let's cut through all of the hype and the rhetoric and understand that we're dealing with somebody who has a history of stiffing people, making things somewhere else besides
america, and whenever possible hiring foreign workers. i don't think that adds up in any way to making american. i think it adds up to making donald trump more money. that's what it's all about. so we're not only going to grow the economy and create more jobs for american workers. we are going to make the economy fairer. we are going to raise the minimum wage so that nobody who works full time will be in poverty. and you've heard it before but i'll say it again, the fastest way to raise incomes in america is to pay women equal pay for the work we do.
now, this is not just a woman's issue. this is a family issue. if you've got a working mother, wife, sister, or daughter, it's your issue. and we are going to enforce the laws and finally make it absolutely clear. no more discrimination against women who work in the workplace. [applause] so i know we're up against some powerful forces. and here's what i want you to know as you talk to your friends, your neighbors about this election. everything i proposed -- and you can go to hillary clinton.com and read all about it. i've told you how i will pay for it. how will i pay for it? i will pay for everything i've
proposed by making the wealthy corporations and wall street finally pay their fair share of taxes. somebody asked me, well, why are you doing that? do you resent success? no, i don't resent success. i do resent people taking advantage of other people to try to become successful. but the reason we're going to give the wealthy to pay is that's where the money is. they have earned 90% of all of the income gained since the recession. that's the top 1%. and i just think, like that old movie says, you've got to follow the money. and the money is with the super wealthy.
now, we're also going to do more for education, starting with preschool education. we're going to support our teachers in order to give them what they need to do the job we're asking them to do. we're going to make four-year college affordable by making it debt free. and we're going to help those of you who have student debt pay it back at a lower interest rate and a faster timetable. and if you do, public service like teaching, policing,
firefighting, social work, we will forgive your debt. this seems to me also to be fair. donald trump gets to refinance and forgive his debt. well, what about the families and students of america who get to have some help with their debts? so if you vote for us, that's exactly what we're going to do next year. so there's a big agenda. and i watched what's happened over the last two weeks. a lot of the rhetoric that came from trump and his convention was so dark, so pessimistic, so
negative. i know we've got problems and challenges. i'm not taking a position that we don't have work to do. in fact, i'm telling you what work we can do together. but at the end of the day, we americans are better when we roll up our sleeves, we set some goals, and we work together. because yes we are stronger together. and i'm very excited about what we can do. you see, i view this campaign as a giant job interview. i am here telling you what i wanted to achieve asking for your vote. and asking you also to hold me accountable. i want you not just to vote for me in november but help me be the best president i can be for all americans.
i want to be the president for every american. and that's why today tim and i and ann are here because we are kicking off this campaign in ohio. and yes we have a lot of other issues that we are concerned about. i see some of the t-shirts and the signs. we will defend planned parenthood from these outrageous attacks. we will defend and improve benefits under social security. [applause] we will take on the gun lobby for comprehensive gun safety reforms. [applause]
we will take on the real challenges that confront america, not pick fights with people, not act as though some folks are better than others. not insult and finger point. we're going to stand up for americans' rights, for womens' rights and gay rights and voting rights and workers rights. but we can't do any of this without your help. and i'm asking for it. we need you to get involved in the campaign. and right now if you will text join, join, at 47246 or go to hillary clinton.com. you can find out how to get involved. and by the way, we are hiring
organizers in ohio if you are interested in being part of our campaign staff. because at the end of this election i want people to have made an informed choice. i don't want folks to be misled, to listen to the rhetoric and the demagoguery. i personally think that donald trump poses a serious threat to our democracy. and it's going to be up to all of us to repudiate the hatefulness, attacks on distinguished military leaders like general john allen who came to the democratic convention
because he loves a country that he served for more than 40 years and wanted to be clear about what he thought was best for our national security. or insulting the family of a fallen soldier, captain kahn, an american muslim who sacrificed his life to protect his unit and other soldiers as the taxi raced towards the gates of a base containing a bomb. when his father spoke at the convention and pulled out a copy of the constitution. [applause] it was so fitting that happened in philadelphia where our country started 240 years ago.
they enshrined in our constitution the principle of religious liberty. they understood that america would be including and attracting people from all over the world. george washington, thomas jefferson, they addressed different religions including islam that were present in america way back at our beginning. and i want us always to stand for freedom and equality and justice and opportunity, now and forever. help us. go out and win an election. that will keep our democracy strong. our economy growing. and give every american a chance to live up to his or her god-given potential. thank you so much.

all of donald trump's vitriol -- way i could no mention the eloquence of his parents. >> why do you think republicans continues to stand by him, given what he has said about john mccain, the khans and so forth? overhey picking party country? right now i think is the time to pick country over party. we have had a republican convention, we have had endorsements from republicans who have analyzed his behavior and his rhetoric in his campaign and have made it clear where they stood. >> the possible governor of ohio has made it plain that these comments are unacceptable. he did not beat around the bush. he called it straight up.
if you cannot show empathy for a gold star mom and dad, there is fundamentally something missing in your personality. do you worry that americans are becoming desensitized to this kind of rhetoric? ms. clinton: the uproar from americans across the country in response to a number of the comments that mr. trump has made, but in particular is derogatory comments about the khans shows the contrary. the vast majority of americans , lookingt and caring for ways to come together, not to be divided by fear and hatred. >> [indiscernible] ms. clinton: let me just say this. this came up for the first time i saw today.
there is a nonpartisan, independent commission that sets of the debates. i was told they set up the schedule last fall. we did not know who the nominees were going to be. i am going to be there. that is all i have to say. hillary clinton answer questions about donald trump's argument that the parents of the muslim american soldier who died in combat, getting pushed back from members of his own party. john mccain slanted donald trump this morning saying that in recent days, he disparaged a fallen soldier's parents. he said, i cannot emphasize how deeply i disagree with mr. trump's statement. i hope americans realize the statements do not like the views of our republican party.

we had at an interesting period of time. we had a little bit of a good evening last night, watching, right? no? the numbers just came out for the big thursday. they call it big thursday. i spoke last week and hillary -- sometimes referred to as crooked hillary -- spoke last night. she is crooked. the hat, i think it was 35 million, and they had less, like 33 or something. in other words, we had more. and i have sort of been saying that, and a happy tell you, both numbers are great numbers. do not forget, on the debate, it
was 24 million, and that was a record. when you have 35 million people watching, those are big, big numbers. but the republican convention outdrew the democratic convention on the big thursday night. good, right? that's good. it's always good. always good. ok. so, we have to go over some numbers because hillary was talking last night about how wonderful everything is. she did not talk about all of the unbelievable long-term unemployment. she did not talk about the fact that house ownership is the lowest it has been in 51 years. amazing. that is a heck of a number. who heard of that?
she did not talk about the fact that we had more police shootings over the last year -- nobody has ever seen anything like what we have going on. over 50% from the previous year. she makes it sound like everything is rosy dory. it is not. people are pouring across the border, we have no idea what they are. people are coming in from syria, and you see what is happening with nice. and a beloved priest, he has his throat slit and dies. and you know what? our country has enough problems. we do not need more problems, and that is going to be more problems.
you know, should we read the snake? should we? does anybody know the snake? should we do it? ok. everybody says would you do it -- who has heard the snake? who has heard it? let me put it differently -- who has not heard it? a lot of people. we will do it. but have to tell you -- last night was sort of unbelievable. i went home and i thought it hillary was not going to mention trump because i thought it would be a class thing to do. she mentioned me 22 times. 22. the truth is it was a little bit on the boring side, wouldn't you say?
i don't think it registered. with the republican convention, i got a big balance. one of the biggest bounces in many years. but we will see. the speech was really lies. one of the things that she talked about was the rough and tumble campaign. you know what this is? this is a speech writer writing a speech, and she read it, and that is what it is. i hate to say this -- politico -- they kill me all the time. but they did not give her high marks. they said it was cliche after cliche. one of the things they said -- a tough and tumble campaign -- now, we have created a movement. [applause]
mr. trump: look, i mean look at this place. [applause] mr. trump: nobody has seen anything like this. what is that behind me? that is pretty tough-looking. but we have created a movement. everybody said this is one of the great campaigns they have ever seen. i mean, look -- you were the forgotten man and woman, i was the guy who has never done this before. i have a great success. i have enjoyed my life. i have a wonderful family. by the way, did my family do a good job? [applause]
mr. trump: you know, they were talking about the star power. i saw the star power. big star power. they were talking about the star power that they had at the democratic convention. it should be democrat convention. sounds better when you say democratic. we maybe shouldn't make it sound better, so we should call the democratic. but they were talking about the star power. let me tell you, i think my kids have more star power, i really do. [applause] mr. trump: they had a general named john allen, i never met him, and he got up and started talking about trump, trump, trump. never met him. you know who he is? he is a failed general. he was the general fighting isis. i would say he has not done so well, right? not so well.
and they had other people, what difference does it make? it was hit after hit after hit. and i said -- i'm going to hit them back so hard. i am going to hit them back so hard, and i will do it verbally, on television, twitter. now between facebook and twitter, 22 million people. can you believe it? that is a force. 22 million. the last day, we picked up 100,000. we have a force. we will hit them back so hard, and a cnn put on "trump is going to hit them." i mean, i will hit them with this, the lips, verbally.
"trump hitting" -- these people are so dishonest. they are so dishonest. a friend of mine calls me up and he is a governor, a great governor. highly respected. i said, you know, we had guys and people that said really bad things about me and he said, donald, don't do anything. you got the nomination. you will beat hillary clinton. focus on hillary clinton. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: but i said, i really want to hit back. i don't mean this. i mean this. i really want to hit them. we will do a verbal lashing on them. and he said, don't do it. don't do it. so, maybe i will do just a little bit, right? i will do it just a little.
we just left two other parts of colorado, which is a great state. i'm here a lot anyway, even without this stuff. i have so many friends here. and we have to win the state on november 8. we have to. we have to. [applause] mr. trump: and i am going to be here a lot. in fact, i will be here so much that you people will say, we will vote for you, do not come back here anymore. right? we will have some fun. but i enjoyed watching it last night. somebody said how was hillary? average. not bad, not good. a lot of shouting. he said "she sucks." not the most exciting speech.
whose speech was better, mine or hers? they say that. you know what they say, the haters -- they are the world's most dishonest. they are the world's most dishonest people. show them the crowd over there. show them the crowd. show them the crowd. and this is my third one today. you think this is fun? do you think so? but actually, i am actually having a great time. we have great people in this country. we have unbelievable people and we are going to make america great again. [applause]
mr. trump: i got a kick last night -- go ahead. [crowd chanting "usa!"] mr. trump: you hear that sound? it sounds like you are watching a big football game, right? denver! good team, good defense. good defense. and you know what? john elway is a great guy. i played golf with him a long time ago. he is long, he is strong. he has done a good job. great defense. i think you will do great, right? my wife will always say, darling, did you have a big crowd tonight?
and she said because the never show the crowd, but boy, it sounds it. you cannot imitate that noise with 100 people. [applause] mr. trump: amazing. you can't imitate that. that is called the real deal. no matter where we go, we have crowds. the crowds are only restrained by the size of the buildings. and sometimes -- now we're using an air museum -- good place, i guess. but it is only restrained by that. when i heard some of the statistics last night -- and i enjoyed -- i thought chelsea did a nice job. chelsea likes ivanka and ivanka likes chelsea.
i wish they did not like each other, but they do. it is easier if they do not like each other. you would think that relationship would be strained, but they like each other. i thought chelsea did a nice job last night, ok? i really did. but that is another subject. hillary said all sorts of wonderful things like we are doing great. here are numbers that came out today. this came out just a little while ago. we got new growth numbers. 1.2% for the second quarter. growth. wait. this is the weakest recovery in modern history. oh, did she say that last night? i don't think so. yesterday, i said this before, the rate of home ownership, people who own their own homes, is the lowest level it has been
in 51 years. did hillary say that last night? no, i do not think so. under president obama -- oh, i like that better. keep the lights up. it just went down 20 degrees. wow. and the audience is even bigger now. i can see the audience. oh, i like this. [applause] mr. trump: i miss my protesters. i miss my protesters. you know, my protesters, they were really bernie protesters. they were really bernie protesters. thank you. oh, look at that. look at that. it is the remnants of a bernie protester. the vital remnants. that's ok.
did you see bernie last night, how angry he was? i do not like to see that. it is bad for your health. he was so angry, they were talking about him, and he was scowling, and his wife put her hand on his shoulder and he did not move, and she took it off. because she could see -- you know why? he sold his soul to the devil. that's right. he sold his soul to the devil. he should not have made that deal. and as soon as she picked this vice president -- do you know what his first move was in virginia? to raise taxes by $4 billion. and unemployment almost doubled in virginia while he was governor. and he is not popular in virginia now. and we going to win virginia. i think we're going to win virginia.
i have a lot of property in virginia. a lot of property, a lot of employees, a pay them a lot of money. i figured she would pick somebody who was popular. they do not like him in virginia. but he raised taxes by $4 billion the first week when he was governor. i do not think that is a good candidate. i do not think so. i like our candidate, right? governor mike pence. indiana has done so well. we like mike. we do. we do. mike is a great guy. ok, so, the rate of home ownership is the lowest it has been in 51 years. president obama during his term has doubled our national debt. we're going to very soon be up to $20 trillion. the u.s. trade deficit -- these
are things to the best of my knowledge -- i have a very good memory. people know me for my memory. or i could not do this without teleprompters. hillary, hillary, teleprompters. you know, she has 10 people in a room and she has a teleprompter. oh, boy. so, listen to this. listen to this. the u.s. trade deficit in goods reached nearly $800 billion last year. $800 billion. we have a trade deficit of nearly $800 billion. did hillary mention that last night? did hillary mention about all of the police -- and we love our police and we love our law enforcement. [applause]
mr. trump: did hillary mention about all of the police that have been shot? i don't think so. did hillary -- did you see the first night, there was no american flag? the second night, there was no american flag. then i put out the word, there is no american flag. then they ran out. they do not really want the flag. the final night, they overdid it. so many flags you could not walk on the stage. they overdid it. but that is like the police. they did not mention the police. they mentioned everybody but the police. then people wrote stories about how they did not talk about the police. they mention them the final night. anyway, long-term unemployment is the worst it has been since the 1940's. did hillary mention that last night? unbelievable numbers.
think of this one -- oh wow, it is too depressing, should i read it? 23.8 million americans in their prime earning years are now out of the labor force. not good. another 14 million americans left the labor force. nearly four in 10 african-american children are living in poverty. while 58% -- think of this -- 58% of african-american youth are not employed. 58%. obama has done a great job, hasn't he? median -- i mean, think of this -- median household income has fallen by more than $4000. $4000. we have people standing in this room who made more money in real
wages 18 years ago than they are making today. they did not work as hard, they were a hell of a lot younger. it should be the other way around. and we lost our jobs, we lost our companies, and we will not let it happen anymore. we're going to get out jobs back, we are going to bring our companies back. we're not going to let our companies leave us anymore, not without repercussions. it is terrible. i mean, it is terrible. these are all statistics. i could go on and on. don't forget, they said that donald trump's speech -- i thought i delivered it well. but what they did is they said it was dark. they said it was dark. but actually it was not dark. it was optimistic because i talked about the problem and we
are going to fix the problems. for example, radical islamic terrorism is a problem. [applause] mr. trump: big problem. that is a big problem. radical islamic terrorism. hillary did not discuss that too much. so, we are bringing in thousands of people from syria. we do not know who they are. we do not know where they come from. there is no paperwork, there is no way of vetting them and they are being placed here, and all over the country, and mostly the officials do not know where they are placing them because it is supposed to be a big, beautiful secret. it is not a big, beautiful secret. and hillary clinton has stated very strongly -- now she will change. just like now she wants to
renegotiate trade deals. now all the sudden after 30 years, she wants to renegotiate trade deals. her husband signed nafta, the worst trade deal in the history of the world. so, hillary clinton wants to increase syrian migrants coming into our country that we don't know who they are by 550%. no way. no way. but you know, i do laugh because she is on a new kick, and the new kick is -- you know, i call her bad judgment, everything she touches is not good. you look at libya, the migration, syria, the iran deal
which she started, every single -- benghazi, look at what happened there. the 3:00 in the morning commercial, remember? who do you want at that phone at 3:00 in the morning? i do not want her at that phone. then she lied like a dog on her e-mails. she lied like a dog on her e-mails. she showed great negligence in what happened. the word is negligence. she put us all at risk. here is the secretary of state with a server that she is not supposed to have. [crowd chanting "lock her up"]
mr. trump: so, i tell you what i would rather do, honestly. i would rather just, november 8, beat her at the polls. we got to beat her. she would be a disaster. remember this -- justices of the united states supreme court. whoever the next president is, you're going to have at least two, maybe three, even four, might be five -- it could be an all-time record in the history of the presidency. if she gets her appointment, we are going to be venezuela. we're going to be venezuela. we cannot do that. one thing i have to say, i was telling you about bernie sanders. they say it is one of the great stories and history of politics.
what is happening here is great, but the same thing is happening no matter where we go. you know, i am the messenger of being smart, common sense, of not being ripped off by every country in the world. we are the messengers. of having strong borders. would anybody like to see the wall get built? yes? [applause] mr. trump: 100%. 100%. 100%. 100% it gets built. you know, these politicians come up to me and they go, donald, i do not understand, you cannot build the wall, can you? we build 95 story buildings. you cannot build a wall, can you? do you see that ceiling? we do not have to go much higher than that.
that is up there. usually, i am looking at a ceiling a lot taller. a lot taller than 12. that would be a good solid wall. anybody that gets up is not getting down so easily, right? we're going to build a wall. these politicians come up to me and they say, you really can't build a wall. you're just kidding, aren't you? i do not kid. i do not kid. let me tell you. we will build a wall and i explained to them that 2000 years ago, the great wall of china was built, and it is 13,000 miles long. we need 1000 miles and we have caterpillar tractors, right? how easy is this? we have a lot of natural borders. we have a lot of natural stuff. we will need about 1000 miles. that will go up so fast, your
head will spin. your head will spin. and, you know, i was endorsed -- i was endorsed by the border patrol agents. first time in the history -- 16,500 border patrol agents -- i was endorsed by the great sheriff joe arpaio. nobody knows better than sheriff joe. nobody knows better than sheriff joe. and he endorsed me. we have tremendous endorsements. but i will tell you, look -- i said to the top people, they called and said, mr. trump, we are endorsing you. mr. trump, they are not doing the job, they are not letting us to our job. how important is the wall? they said, mr. trump, the wall is vital. it is a great tool.
he will be the best tool for protection. we have to stop the drugs from coming in. we have to stop illegals from pouring across our border. you know, let me tell you -- one of the interesting things -- so, the president of mexico was being interviewed and he said -- the past president -- and he said there is no way they are going to build -- and then you know what happened. he used the f bomb, on live television. on that station right there. he used the f bomb. no, no, no. he used the f bomb. can you imagine if i used the f bomb? it would be over. it would be over.
he said, that wall will never -- f bomb -- ever get built. and i said, that is great news. before they were going some a -- so many different levels. now he says it will not be paid for by them. here's what is going to happen -- we are going to build the wall, mexico is going to pay for the wall 100%. 100%. we're going to stop the drugs from pulling into our country and poisoning our youth. we are going to stop people that aren't supposed to be here from coming into our country. that is going to happen. so, people like this -- and i have done it a few times, people like it. this was actually a song written
by al wilson quite a while ago. and i heard this and i said, this really pertains to what we talk about when we talk about illegal immigration. so i said, you know, let me do this. i read it a couple of times and people love it. should i do it? it is called "the snake." and remember, this pertains to people coming across the border and people coming in from syria. we have no idea who they are. remember -- they cut the heads off people. they drown people in steel cages by the thousands. they are cutting off heads. this is like medieval times. and then they say to me -- they talk about waterboarding.
i am ok with it, i am sorry. can you imagine -- waterboarding became famous. they felt it was just short of torture. i am not saying it is pleasant. believe me, it works. they asked during one of the debates, they asked ted cruz, and he was very uncomfortable. was that a display of love, speaking of ted cruz? when they booed him off that stage, seriously, the entire texas delegation booed him off that stage.
say what you want, they did not cover it that way. that is when you knew the party was united. this party is united. right? other than a few guys -- it was the toughest primary ever fought. we had 17 people. and we had trump. win. -- we have to remember when i came in and these pundits said, he will never run. he is just having a good time.
it is 120 degrees under those crazy lights, it is late. do you know what time i get home tonight? 4:00 in the morning. but it is fun. because we are going to do something which is never been done before in this country. when bill o'reilly and others say it was the single greatest political phenomena that he has witnessed in his lifetime, he has seen a lot, that is what happens. remember -- and we started off at 6%. these pundits said, he got 6%. i started late, everybody else was in.
6%, that will be his ceiling. 6% will be his ceiling. they speak with such surety. next week, i get 12%. he got 12%, a little higher than i thought. a little higher than i thought, that will be his ceiling. he will not go higher than that. next we get 18%. then i get 22%. then they get 25%. 27% 30%. 32%. 36%. [cheers] then i get 38%. every single time, they say that will be the ceiling. when i'm hitting 30's and everyone else is low, you have some zeros. out of millions and millions of people, nobody voted for them.
go home, get out. they were among the nastiest of people. there were the nastiest ones. i had 38%. and then i hit 42. i will never forget, one of the people, i hit 42% and there were like 10 people left. they said, he hit 42%, but he cannot break 50. he cannot break 50%. he cannot break 50%. i got 10 people. senators, governors. ben carson, a great guy, he endorsed me. smart guy, good guy. i get 42% and have these idiots saying he may have 42%, but he does not have 50.
we have 10 people left. here's the story. we get more and more and do a number and i will tell you what, it is a great feeling. a lot of feelings were hurt. because people say it was the nastiest, meanest, hardest primary ever fought in the history of the country. might have been tougher before television, but how could it be. when you can say something on television, you reach everybody at one time. you call someone a certain name and everyone hears it. some of these people have not recovered. but slowly but surely, marco rubio, he endorsed me last week. [cheers] he's a good guy and running for senate in florida and he will win. and i will win in florida.
[cheers] i have to win here. now i start up here, i get here and they are like saying, but donald trump never did this before. one of the people that was running has been out of office for a while and they said, he has only been office for eight years. and they don't say that about trump. i've never been in office. they don't give me a pass. i get a call from a big reporter. the biggest. happens to be a slight liberal. he said how does it feel? what you have done has never been done before. and i said, i disagree. it doesn't matter whether you
win or lose, you will be in the history book for what you've done. and i said, let me stop you there, if i don't win, if i don't beat crooked hillary she is as crooked as a three dollar bill, if i don't be at crooked hillary clinton, i will consider this a tremendous waste of time, energy and money. believe me. [cheers] i'm not looking to be in the history books unless it is at the top. we will make our country great. we will make america safe again. safe again. [cheers] so, i found this and not a lot of people know it, but i think it is terrific. and remember this have to do with really with syrians coming across.
just understand, i have a big heart. i want to build saison in syria for the syrians. i want to get the gulf states to pay for it because they are not doing anything right now. and without us, they would not be there for two minutes and they have nothing but money, nothing but money. we owe $20 trillion, i will put my developer hat on. we are going to use other people 's money, writes? right? we will build safe zones that will be funded by other countries with lots of money. and we will supervise it. think of this, this is people coming in, we don't know who they are but we do know there will be trouble. it is only a question of when. on her way to work one morning, down the path along the lake, a tenderhearted woman saw a half
frozen, really beautiful snake. she cried, i will take you in , and i will take care of you. now, you have to understand, folks, this is a snake that is in bad shape. and you have this really nice -- a, and she goes tenderhearted woman saw a half frozen snake. it his pretty colored skin had been frosted with the dew. oh well, she cried, i will take you in. and i will take care of you. take me in. take me for heavens sake. take me in, tender woman. she wrapped him up all cozy in a curvature of silk. bennett laid him by the fireside with some honey, and some milk. now, she hurried home from work that night, and as soon as she
arrived, she found that pretty snake she had taken in had been revived very take me in, o tender woman, take me in for heaven sake, take me in, tender woman sighed the broken snake. now she clutched into her bosom, you are so beautifu,l she cried. but if i had not brought you in by now, you certainly might have died. now, she stroked his pretty skin, and she kissed and held him tight, but instead of saying hq, that snake gave her a vicious bite. take me in, o tender woman, take me in for heavens sake, take mr -- take me in sighed the vicious , snake. i saved you, cried that woman
me heavens, why? you know your bite is poisonous and now i'm going to die. oh shut up, silly woman, said the reptile with a grin. you knew damn well i was a snake before you took me in. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: that's where we are. that is where we are. you watch, you watch. so, we don't want to be the stupid country anymore. we want to be the smart country. we are going to make great trade deals. i read the numbers, $800 billion in trade deficits last year. with china alone, the greatest abuser of them all, i don't hold
it against china. china is great. i love china. i do business with china. i have the hardest data have the largest bank in the world as a tenant in one of my buildings in manhattan. it is a chinese bank. the biggest in the world. we sell condos. the bank of america building of san francisco is mine with a partner. 1290 of the americas of the avenue, one of the biggest buildings in manhattan. it all comes through china. we can do great with china. but we have stupid people representing us. stupid, stupid people. so, here is what is going to happen. we are going to build and bring our best. look we have the greatest , business people in the world. we don't use them. we use political hacks.
some of these business people are not nice people. who cares. you care? i don't think so. some of these people are vicious, horrible human beings. who cares. you cares. some of these people, they don't sleep at night, they twist and turn and sweat and their mattresses are soaking wet because they are thinking all night about victory the next day against some poor person that doesn't have a chance. unfortunately,e, i know them all. these people would love to represent us against china, against japan, against all of these countries. mexico, where they are killing us at the border, and killing us in trade. we have a massive trade deficit with mexico, not including the drugs that go back and forth by the billions.
that is not including the drugs. we have the greatest business people in the world. they would do it for nothing. they still love this country. they feel crazy, so angry. they can't believe the deals that are made. we can do things that have never been done before. we will stay open trade. you know one of the reporters , asked me a couple weeks ago, mr. trump, do you believe in free trade? i said, yes. i believe in free trade, fair in 10 otherieve forms of trade. but the bottom line, my deal is that i just don't want labels. i want to make great deals with individual countries for our country, so that we create jobs and we take in money. want rate deals.
that is what i want. and that is what we will have. so, free trade, interesting. free-trade is wonderful, but to have returned, we need more people on our side. we don't use the smart people. or we use people that are totally controlled by lobbyists , and special interests, like hillary clinton. hillary clinton is bought and paid for by wall street. now i put up almost $60 million , for the primaries, which sounds like a lot of money. but believe me, others spent 200 -- $200 million and they lost. what would you rather do? would you rather be on the side of the person who has spent the least money and won, or the most money and lost? who do you want as your president? people that spent much more money than me, and they came in seventh place.
money, relatively little i put it up myself,nd came in first place. but not only first place. 14 million people is the highest vote total in the history of the republican party. right? anit was a beautiful thing. but look, look. we want to have free-trade. and our companies want to deal. but you know that china sends other stuff and we can't send us that the china. we can't free trade and the currency manipulation is unacceptable. and on top of everything else, in the south china sea, they are building a massive military fortress that they are not supposed be building because they have absolutely no respect for us. so, all of that is going to
change. here is the a story -- here is the story, are you ready? we don't win anymore as a country. we used to win. when i was in high school, basically never lost a war. country never lost a work. we never lost that anything. now we only lose. we go and we fight these wars like iraq we should of never got , in. i said you will destabilize the middle east. but i was a business guy. nobody cared. it was common sense. you had iran and iraq always fighting. nobody moving. they were the same power. then we decimated one power, and now iran will take over iraq. they have already essentially taken over iraq. and we made it possible for them to walk in. so here is the story. we don't win anymore. but we are going to start winning again. our military is depleted. we are going to build it will be
-- we are going to build it up. it will be a thing of beauty. [cheers] mr. trump: we will get other countries and knock the hell out of isis, believe me. we have no choice. [cheers] mr. trump: we are going to take care of our wonderful veterans that are being treated terribly. [cheers] mr. trump: we're going to start winning with trade. we will make great trade deals. we are not going to let carrier air conditioner and forward and all of these other companies -- d, and all of these other companies -- we will not let them go to mexico and other countries, fire all their people, make their products and then send it back to our country and sell it. we get unemployment and no taxes. no. when they make their product and they want to leave and fire our great people, they can go and i
will wish them luck, but when they send the product back into our country, they will pay tax for that product at a substantial tax, and they will never, ever leave in the first place. they will never leave in the first place. they will never leave in the first place. we will make great trade deals. we are going to save our second amendment, which is totally under siege. ok? totally under siege. [cheers] mr. trump: we are one to repeal and replace obamacare, so much less expensive. so much less. [cheers] mr. trump: we are going to terminate the horrible common core, and you are going to educate your children locally. [cheers] mr. trump: we are going to have powerful, beautiful, strong borders, and people are going to
come into our country, but they are going to come into our country legally, legally, legally. [cheers] mr. trump: and we are going to start winning again. we are going to win so much that you are going to get sick and tired of winning. [cheers] mr. trump: we are going to make the denver broncos look like a team that doesn't even do so well by our winning percentage. ok? trade, --g to my with we will win with trade, we will win at the border, we will win with the second amendment, we will win with education, we will win with everything. we will win for our veterans. [cheers] mr. trump: and all of my friends in denver, and all of my friends

thanks and welcome to our two circuit justices. our former circuit justice, john paul stevens, and our current circuit justice elena kagan. each of them has generously given their time to be with us this evening, and i'm very much looking forward to this conversation. so thanks to both of you. [applause] >> justice stevens, let me start with you. you joined the supreme court on december 19, 1975, after being confirmed unanimously by the senate. and you left the court on june 29, 2010. the world changed quite a bit over those 35 years. do you think the supreme court also changed, either in the
nature of the cases, or in the way the justices went about their daily work, or any other way you might identify? or do you think the court is a constant? let me first say one briefing. i want you to know that he also was a very good caddy. [laughter] mr. stevens: he actually caddied for me more than once. [laughter] mr. stevens: to answer your question i'm reminded of barren on white he said that every time , there is a new justice on the court, it is a different court. changest summarize the just in terms of time that goes by, but each member of the court changes it, and it is a
different institution. and that is the most important change that ever occurs on the court, is the appointment of the new justice. assuming there will be another new justice in the court someday, i also should say i am very happy to say my successor is a very excellent justice, because i almost never disagree with her. [laughter] mr. stevens: although, i think i may have disagreed with her in the case they decided this morning. [laughter] mr. stevens: when they could have been 4-4, they struggled to keep the case alive. now, i'm sorry, what was the question? [laughter] >> how the court has changed over the period in which you
have been involved with it? mr. stevens: the major change was the fact that they do a much better job of managing their docket. they don't take twice as many cases as they are capable of hearing, which we did. we had many too many cases. the court is better at managing its docket than it was. and, i assume that will continue. say, every court is different when a new justice comes on. >> how many justices came and went while you were on? , i am nots: well sure. [laughter] mr. stevens: about seven or eight. sandra, david, tony, nino. >> then david souter, stephen
breyer. mr. stevens: and steve and ruth, yeah. that's a lot of change. mr. stevens: yes, a lot of change. >> justice kagan, you have been on the court not quite as long. in time we are looking forward to this anniversary in the future. one of the things that has changed, certainly since i was a law clerk is the way the court uses technology. we used to have typewriters, which are a device for those of , you who are young, it was not hooked up to the internet. you created text directly. [laughter] -- how hasthink technology changed the way the court does its work? ms. kagan: can i say something about collins? [laughter]
ms. kagan: congratulations, collins. now i know to come to you for a caddy. [laughter] ms. kagan: could i say something about being a pair with john stephen sacco the last time we stevens? the last time we were in public together was six years ago. you have a date, john will only be 102. [laughter] ms. kagan: it is a special thing to get a phone call from the president saying he would like you to be on the supreme court. it is like a super special thing to know that you are going to be the successor of john stevens. that is a special honor and it makes a quite extraordinary. and i think all the time about all the john accomplished in the seats that i now hold.
john, you were an inspiration to me in anything i do. so, thank you. [applause] ms. kagan: so, technology? i think the way you framed the question is that technology has changed the court since we were clerks there. it has changed, but maybe not as much as you would think. [laughter] ms. kagan: when i got to the court, it was about 25 years after i started. of course, in those 25 years, an information revolution had taken place. and we don't do typewriters anymore. messengersl had literally walked memos around the building. [laughter]
didn't none of you hear any of that? [laughter] ms. kagan: yes? now? anything? ok? yes? should i use both? [laughter] ms. kagan: how about now, yes? >> yes, now it is on. ms. kagan: look, this is not the most technologically sophisticated institution you are ever run across in your life. [laughter] ms. kagan: but really, what institution made up of people all over 55 really is? we do our best. certain it, i think all of us understand that aside from just the court running well and using technology route -- technology well we have to understand , technology to handle a lot of important cases. i think we all make a great effort to learn what we need to
know to decide those cases in a sensible way. so, it is good that we have clerks are young, and can instruct us on things. sometimes i think the most important thing my clerks do for me is to tell me what snapchat is or something. [laughter] >> i understand that. i have been known to check with my son, who is sitting right here, about twitter or instagram or snapchat or facebook -- facebook i knew about, that is passe. [laughter] >> so, i know that. another interesting contrast, both of you has time working another branches of the government. justice kagan was the solicitor general of united states, and before, worked in the white
house and some capacities. in justice stevens served as counsel to the sub council on monopoly, the house judiciary committee. so, the interesting -- so, it will be interesting to know whether or how that experience outside the judiciary affected your understanding of what the court to do, and do you think it gave you a useful perspex this as compared to those who just sort of went straight into judicial work? mr. stevens: do i go first? >> you can go first. mr. stevens: i thought about this since you sent me a copy of the question. >> you are not supposed to tell. they did both ask. [laughter] mr. stevens: that was probably one of the most important parts of my education. many times i think back of the experiences i had on the subcommittee. i think that kind of work, you
get a feel for legislation that is not available in any other source. you can't read in books, but you appreciate the fact that the legislative process is very different from most other processes that you are going to get involved in. i think steve fryer has the same feeling. i think he really learned a great deal as chief counsel for the senate judiciary -- the senate, rather than the judiciary committee. but, i cannot pin down pacific examples of things that i remember, but i am constantly aware of the experience. it helped me a great deal and understanding what goes on in the law. and i remember one time, i
