tv Key Capitol Hill Hearings CSPAN August 13, 2016 12:00am-2:01am EDT
of connoisseurship that have since found incredibly embarrassing and tedious. of time i've come to know the difference of the discovered something with a long history in the noting something at the best of something as a very odd cultural statement. in the meantime, it turns out that there are other reasons to care about what i'm eating. when i learned about social justice, it was from cesar chavez and migrant farmworkers in the central valley of california. i knew from an early age that people got hurt making food easy and inexpensive for me. ands somewhat astounded mesmerized and a little bit offended by the whole thing. in the meantime, many movements developed. our next speaker is somebody who comes to run an organization that looks at this at a very practical level. the last time i was at one of
your conferences which is coming up again, 800-1000 people in the middle of a rainy saturday afternoon were talking in practical terms about what they were doing. it was not a political movement. it was activity interaction and discussion. please help it welcomed the executive rector of just food. welcome the executive director of just. read with a sense of social justice. food was started 20 years ago by a group of people that were looking at the movement towards sustainable agriculture and the antihunger movement thinking that there should not be parallel lines. we had farms disappearing and we have people in the city were hungry. convened the first conference the first year and what they eventually hit on was the first thing they did which was csa.
at the point that just food was founded, there was one csa in new york city. there are now 130 in our network. from the beginning, there was a on making sure that was accessible to everyone. csa often of income involves payment upfront and loans and pay-as-you-go for certain people. we also suggest a lobby to make sure you could use snap benefits or food stamps over time it really evolved to become community given solutions to bringing fresh fruit and neighborhoods that did not have that. we do that in a variety of ways. we support urban farmers and community gardeners and growing for the communities. out of that they said, that we are growing. we did the train the trainer model. we teach people how to grow. out of that they said we are grown enough food everyone to be able to formally sell it. we want to start our own farmers markets and the told us we had
to learn and we went out in large and learned alongside them. i would have about 27 community run farmers markets around the city. we also do community food education. a train the trainer model where we train people in the specialies of cope with ingredients. it has a cook in a seasonal and local manner. we also have a farm to pantry program by contact with farmers of state to grow food specifically for pantries. this is not leftover food. this is food that has grown for them. they get to go and grow. and thattart to growth the pantry clients like. it is a symbiotic relationship. over time we have evolved into a capacity building organization. we don't say here's what you should do to improve the food situation, we say what you see
as the problem and what you see as the solution? how can we support you? >> that is wonderful. [applause] i say that because in northern california, where the farm where there it is very connected. that sounds like the activity that would go on in any community. the packet is going on in new york city is really started. something that i cap happening without having, but you been doing it for 20 years. tell us when the next conferences. on march,ming sunday 13. at the postcards at the back that you can go to. just food conference.org.
alls about 800 people from aspects of the food maven. a great chance to network and understand the breast particulars of the food system. if you have ever read about or thought about the south beach wine and food festival, this is the opposite. >> mitchell. look away from the camera. the next judgment right about a lot of things the right and death about personality and situations. he tells wonderful stories. he reveals delightful or painful truths and he wrote a book that i now handout as kind of curriculum for working with me on any of my projects. >> kind of?
>> you gave me a big discount so that was good. ago, he published united states of arugula. the title of your book out barack obama elected twice. tell us how that came to be in the short story. >> my narrative echoes a bit of vigils which is that i felt like mitchell, i was obsessed with food and i saw it not just assessment but as cultural history, american history and i was looking for this book to read, a book to explain how we made such rate strides for the under 40 to the room, this may sound absurd, but there's a time for us over 40 when things like holding coffee and balsamic vinegar and guccis and salad greens other than remain in ice cream -- iceberg were mind blowing.
written a comprehensive history on how in some you have heard of like james beard and julia child. startedy 2000's, i working on this book and it came out in 2006. authors as i'm sure you all know part insufferable narcissist. , when finished the book naturally things of the author because i am publishing this book and we reach some sort of historical endpoint. history cannot proceed from here. else's take everyone time. some bullet points. some be amazing ways it has only gotten bigger the last two years. telling one, but a mark new was a cookbook author
migrated from the new york times over the course of 2006 to the present from being the recipe 2011-2015 being the op-ed page writer. suddenly it is on the op-ed. california to to purple care. the obamas who were not in office when the book was the nationalngs nutrition policy advisor. not sidelining food but making it a central part of the administration policy. tenure sustained declined food of sales. we have to give some credit to nyu who has been beating the drums about this. in the thought seriously
dumps that have the management shakeup. because the american people were is better there tasting food in the last thing i will mention because it sets up claire nicely, one of the last just,"i interviewed was jim. he said i don't know if i'm doing the right thing. i feel like i'm addicted to the deal. too funny things happen, he
started to think up in policy action. and this leads nicely to the next person, claire. [applause] >> we're going to pass thousand three by five cards. ,e find if you have a question i will clean it up for you. if you see a three by five card coming, right your question and pass it to the front. have a chance to have your thoughts reflected. somebody whoker is does it every day. thank you david for the segway. a lot of us talk about these
things in terms of public opinion and the op-ed page. in terms of cultural expeditions. and entertainment and in terms of popular culture and nonfiction or possibly slightly nonfiction. somebody has to do something about the policy and a lot of us feel that our influences the only thing that matters in a lot of us feel that their influence is your thing then that is. what is the role of politics? what is the role of the not simple policymaking? welcome claire. [applause] tutorial, what is your organization, how does it work? any help at all?
a little bit of context -- >> little bit of context. it is a fairly new organization. founded by ken cook in a handful of other really great and policy leaders before coming over to food policy action in 2013, i spent 10 years on capitol hill working for a handful of really good food policy leaders. leahy andor senator for my last five years i worked for congresswoman chellie pingree two is unique. an came to congress as organic farmer. cc the policy issues as nonpartisan issue that to be embraced. , sheshe came to congress charting to find the policy that would be impactful in would be meaningful to consumers. we came up with a great deal.
a first of the time we made some good strides but will we found over and over again was despite enormous changes and a lot of the details are talking about, & congress really like the information that their voters cared about these issues. when we approach them about things like additional funds for farmers markets or reducing barriers for local production, they really only had heard from the opposition. they had only heard from agribusiness and large agriculture lobbyists and they do not understand that these were huge shifts happening in states across the country. around the same time, shelley and i started talking to some food experts about why were we losing big fights?why we're losing on the farm bill and tied nutrition
authorization when things are happening across the country and politicians were only hearing from the opposition, the people benefiting from the status quo in one of the reasons and the wristers change is that despite these big changes, there is nobody holding congress accountable for their votes on the policy. while it matters to voters, there was nobody connecting the dots. similar to bigger conservation voters or the nra, we had to put together a scorecard so that voters across the country could easily see how their elected officials were putting on the issues that we see as a value statement. everything from legislation that would reduce hunger in america to sustainable farming, departmental impact of the production in the score all of those. this fall we will put out our fifth scorecard and i will say year after year we start here for more members of congress that they realize people are paid attention.
we see scores overall, republicans and democrats increasing. it is being shared more widely and we are not at the end of this by any means. we're starting to see real change. they answer your tongue into question, tom is incredibly helpful. this as an advocate for hunger. he worked for a long time raising money for a lot of really good organizations in our city to reduce hunger in america and what he saw for things we saw which were despite the good work, it is very important, we were not making real change. the policies coming out were not doing anything to really reduce hunger so while he still remains an important hunger advocate, he understands how all these things .re connected >> that it's really good news.
[applause] the last 24 hours, whole foods has announced he will try to program selling less-than-perfect looking produce for a lower price, something we call a natural food grocery or a farmers market. [laughter] several other companies have announced that four the xo became free. the schedule of people announcing who want absolute all the credit and financial gains for what they are promising to maybe do some are down the road, that something a good idea and is similar to what they think consumers one or the general public ones. it is wonderful to hear all of this. will tellociologists us a little bit about what he sees from all this. what are we looking at checkout , my role in this
department. most importantly, the department which is a little unusual. reveals how we look at things including marion's work. which is crucial. food department of studies. the attrition and public health. as the institutional ecology. what is interesting about nutrition and food studies is this, we want to pay attention oftenritional science and what we see with increasing skepticism developing is sometimes skepticism without limits. skepticism without reason can end you up in a place where you
are spending a ton of money drinking zero colored water. water was always zero calories. every fad which is of too muchcology doubt and skepticism. a conspiracy. we will end up like the client -- climate change deniers. whicht the department in people are informed about the science and is evidence-based. but within reasonable limits. understanding how science happens. with allnce happens kinds of provisions but we know a few things well. we know some things marginally, some things we don't know anything about that call. about at all.
modern medicine, think about, some have used this metaphor, the donor. at the heart of it is the placebo effect. we know relatively little about the placebo effect. we have to design our science as double-blind studies because we don't know how placebos work. what we know as the doughnut. and then will we don't know again is the outward. we want to be in a department that has, understands the science and limits of science and understand the politics of science but also learns in the social sciences and humanities. that is the instigation behind the department in a sense were ofritious have a good sense what is good for people but people did not follow them.
the question is made we don't understand people. how do we understand people? we have to understand behavior and how do we understand you have your doctor we have to understand motivation. it goes back to the anthropological question, food has to be good to think with to be able to eat. in some ways, the problem may be paying too much attention to nutrition nutrition is a and maybe the problem of the food system and away way we pay attention and ignore things. fact to works in on the science, understand the science and understand the limits of the science and then look at what we can learn from the social sciences and communities. that is the big picture sense of >> this is all about an
academic program of liberal arts and sciences. this is about being properly educated. everything you said makes complete sense and what is shocking is that is not what people always thought. the bifurcated culture where we think one side is fine. talks to each other and learning from each other. our department, we don't always talk to each other and we are not always like to each other. culturere building a especially amongst the students which is a sense to take culture seriously and take the science seriously. >> some years ago, i was asked to facilitate a conversation at , themithsonian and it was museum of natural history and
what we did was we gathered everyone together, scientists, people who make dioramas, those people are fun. science journalists and academics and what not, at the beginning, i do not know what they were talking about, i was just there to help and as question. in the beginning they had stated that anthropology is here, it is and culturedrawer apologies us. and that there was relevance. that is what you are talking about. years, about the last 20 how much of the movement have as what we would call the food movement which is not academic, the academics have responded writing kind.
what you see as the food movement? >> academics is usually 20 years behind the marketplace. think, is inhat we fact a conservative institution that conserves knowledge. ,t can be at the leading edge in some ways it has nothing wrong with it, but it is fascinating and partly with the other commentators have said especially coming from the james beard foundation, in my book, my most recent book, the ethnic er, it tends to this question, food is good and important and we should pay attention to it, but we should probably also pay attention to as much as questions of livelihood.
liveliness and livelihood, liveliness of cities depends on sustainable lives. if we care about liveliness of cities, we should be caring about livelihoods and in some ways, that if the two parts of the movie. some degree of conflict and some degree of commentary. good food and just good. obsession with good food can lead to adjust to. you can also reverse that. just want toon't live miserable just lives. pleasure is important. justice is important to us. the lessons we learn is precisely that. some degree of conflict.
students invested in food, the are students invested in food the way they invested in music. i don't exactly understand that. defining and context thinking. it is not just what i listen to, it is who i am wishing to it. it is why i'm been watching -- bench watching shows. try to understand everything. that point. >> marvin is going to walk down the center of the aisle waiting and he will collect any of those two by five cards with questions. don't be shy. some things from the panelist, when i said we were in this moment, a roman to seize, partly i think that is because of the very confidence of the idea that
we are at this time, good food and just food and gastronomic we important to all happen to be coming to be the same food. that doesn't happen a lot. as i was never happened before. table, athat farm to farm to table restaurant would be absurd. hundred years ago, you ate food you grew and he went to restaurants for something else. a moment whene of just food, ethically produced food, delicious food, is why we are in a very powerful mobile right now when i think of the --d stage, >> he wrote he had a conversation with alice waters and they feel that party table has been overdone and it is over. i wrote a plight editor -- polite letter saying stop it.
we spent 40 is 20 get something to pay attention to the fact that the to come from farms and a wonderfully written article but no. how important are words? words are really important to someone who makes his living as a writer. people, i was an indie band on the irs record label in there was a's, certain band of indie people who thought this was our scene in them a sign to warner bros. and became millions and suddenly those in the people in the goth makeup and long trench coats her like they sold out been on a band anymore. that is silliness. it is analogous to that. getsnk the word hype thrown around in a negative way. this routine become so hyped. it really hasn't. can i thought about the sheraton
letters. she is a wonderful journalist and was a restaurant critic of the new york times. buildingso lived in a at this very space and she complained for many years about what she had a six room $125 a month rent controlled. >> she is a great journalist and ypewary of this height -- h complex. she wrote a letter which is basically saying, i think she had one legitimate point and he was being a little too self-congratulatory with his column and the weight it made more americans think about food and food policy. she said food has been taking seriously in all aspects ever since people have been in cities
and that with corruption, adulteration, fair treatment of workers in health and poverty and the rest. the awareness is more widespread due to massive media. simply due to mass media. mass media equals awareness. meaning this greater amount of mass media is a wonderful thing and is advancing the argument. hype is not a bad thing. hype for the blackbird groep at the japanese burger king is a stupid thing. >> it is a double-edged sword. >> forms of hype are stupid. >> how will the food movement create enough jobs for food studies graduates? and others that both provide a living wage and make substantial food system changes or contributions? these are good practical questions. >> i wanted to pick up on the
last thread. what are the challenges, a lot of questions about whether we are really changing the food systems. probably a lot of people in this room eat what they consider to be an ethical >> i'm getting paid to sit at the table to be totally honest. we have to open the movement up to people. i think to a certain extent that is going to be about control. we have already defined the problem. we are going to have to engage in a meaningful way and give power to the people who are most impacted, and allow them to define the problem, and support them finding solutions. out of that we will see the food movement, the food system start to change and create opportunities for food jobs.
[applause] >> can doing the right thing about food be monetized? i guess that is the big question. that is a lot of what you are doing. is it considered that this will create more jobs or jobs that are better for people to live better lives? theurrently, seven out of worst paying jobs are related to the food system. there is a problem there. we need to engage in some of the justice issues. we need to be part of the fight for 15. we need to engage in these bigger food sites that impact people. first of all, all of that.
the justice issues, fair wages for work. there is a question of people and in academic way studying the food system and what the future of that looks like. perspective when i started working on food issues in washington it wasn't really like food issues in washington. lobbyists, double the size of the defense department lobbyists. a lot of people are working to keep the status quo the way it is. as the country has started to , that is being reflected in jobs in washington as well. while we don't have the numbers that our counterparts do, there are tremendous organizations.
lobbying for better policy, i've only seen that grow in strides. as we look at the next big sites we will see that grow more and more. aaron: have you think -- how do you think people will view things as political? the role of culinary schools. this started 10-20 years ago. it was the hot thing to learn how to be a shaft and get on a tv show and go out of business. it was classical. how important is political education? in the foodorts system? >> i would limit that question
to the students. we hear from chefs who are trying to do the right saying. treating their employees more equitably. using better sourced ingredients. a dozen asked the questions about the practices of the restaurants and give them a star without considering the value ratio of quantities served and priced. i won't -- someone i know well has a meal with someone who is a mood editor of one of the largest papers in the world. how do you celebrate that and not take things into account? it is irresponsible to separate
those. ,he rider's, the food magazines the places you will find these things least discussed ironically, that is part of the problem. question,gs up the some of the issues are discussed on the food pages of the new york times in this cultural look. we have found this lovely culture. aren't they wonderful they take these beans and grow them? i'm oversimplifying. .here is this word, ethnic food some find it condescending. i was talking to a food writer in the west and i said don't use that word. how about exotic?
i said, that is worse. give us a word about the integration of food culture. iswhat i find most promising the fight for 15 and minimum wage. labor.stion of what i find really heartening, 21 states have gotten involved. have a candidate in the political mainstream who drives labor issues. that is radical. that is a good symptom of where the food movement could push things. ,he minimum wage question because they are going to be thee jobs, you have to move
bottom of the market. i'm looking at the configuration of forces allowing this discussion i would have never dreamt in the shadow of what is called the post-reagan united states. the ground has shifted on that. challenge,related how do you bring in stakeholders into engaging with this? especially where the stakeholders are transnational migrants. labor, produce and clothing. if we have to find a mechanism of collaboration and coordination across national spaces because everything is , that is the central
challenge. my work is a small part of this engagement. the cold troll politics. if you look at american cities, occupations, most food related wheretions, we have data we ask people there occupations. we ask people their workplace. rulers, saloon keepers have always been foreign-born. that raises an interesting question. american food has always been foreign food. thing. find a fantastic i think american food cultures changes every 20 years. that is its promise.
are in the middle of the transportation -- transformation. it raises a question. , it's a world of people who are called everyday folks and then there are celebrity cooks. i have space, i have income. it allows me to cook when i wish to. the burden of everyday cooking at the heart of that is the problem of professionalization. it is not just a promise. it is a problem. in whichit a structure people who don't usually cook
didn't happen? what did you think should have happened that didn't? >> what didn't happen? it's a good question. i spent a lot of time thinking about what did happen. , i give at happen yet talk a lot to people in the hospitality industry, you learned the customer is always right, you build your business model doing that. i think what happens in the last 20 years is the production side, the chefs and the farmers, the artisans got really good but the
customers didn't. the customers, when you look at food cultures around the world, they keep those things in check. and said thenell customer is not always right. the customer has to meet the level of the producer and put themselves in their head and understand why there are no tomatoes. be a better has to customer. that is not what has happened yet. >> if you want a cup of coffee, , disgusting.fee in the last five years we have begun to have a sense of good coffee. there is always good coffee roasted in new york city.
it wasn't respected by the pipeline. the guy who grounded, they did it, they did not care. do? can an individual >> the individual can -- i don't think they can know everything. tohink the individual needs cede some power and pay attention. be more mindful. , to be more street active in the process. >> i think to a certain extent consumers have come along.
we're thinking differently. -- someones robust said where should i go to eat? what do you want? farm to table. we don't even talk about farm to in new york anymore. it is kind of a given. we have farmers markets and other ways to get food. there is a gap. it's about infrastructure and supply and scale. our food system got really big. a lot of us are advocating for this small thing. we are finding it hard to make a living. outthing we haven't figured , what is the right size and what is that system that gets the food to the people who are going to sell it to us? >> we are going to be addressing
that later this year. we love to fall in love with tiny farms. middle, ined in the place that aren is beautiful. we have to talk about that. we will continue the in,versation about 20 years th n what do we know, what can we know, and what should we know? these are good things. you think nothing didn't happen you are worried about. you think things did happen. >> i think we have an addressed that middle point. we seeing a lot of farmers trying hard and giving up. , if we don'tn preserve. purveyorsnk about our and where we are getting food from and except a little inconvenience if we can afford
it to invest and keep that system going while we figure out these mechanisms by which food is going to get around. we required to have to have a large system of small constructs to feed a billion people at least. happened, a lot of really great things have happened. we are on our way. enough, aot happened collective buy-in from the american public. there is too much that if you care about food in america, not in france or asia, you are eva elitist.-- you are made fun of for mentioning the word arugula. livelinessk to the
that goes hand-in-hand with livelihood. liveliness, joy. how do we get the public to buy-in to everything the panel has been talking about? we start with joy, the taste of good food. if they are cultivated right, it is part of what food does so well. protect people in urban settings. you slice the beat and you drizzle the olive oil. you are buying in, you are getting it. that.d more of i want a t-shirt.
aid,brought as a visual look at the tubers. foodis about the wasted initiative. look how beautiful they are. this was once considered unsellable food. happen and what can one person do? >> the thing that we are not doing is trying to figure how we move this incredible food movement into a political movement. how did we elect people who understand food issues are important so access to affordable health care, healthy value? a universal how do we change that in a significant way over the next 20 years. knowledgeable,
vote this way. vote your values. find out how your elected officials are voting on these issues. go to plate of the union.com. ask these questions. there is so much we can do to be a more engaged food citizen in this country. i'm am at going what has been said. this hinge between a consumer ,nd a citizen, connecting that we are very good at articulating what we need, what is owed as a consumer. i don't think we make equal demands as citizens. i'm optimistic. looking at the labor movement, that is the translation that has to happen. how we take our citizenship .an's -- demands
thing, say one other system and very small system. maybe we need food at moderate speeds. not fast, not slow. that might be the way to build relatively efficient but relatively resilient systems. there is a trade-off. be able to build reform systems to politics. action,neighborhood through csa's. we can build this system of food at moderate speeds and moderate scales. whatencourage you to do

[cheers] mr. trump: but just talking, back to a few of my friends that live here. we have a few of the friends and we see what happened with general electric where they are , cutting way back. not going to happen. you know why they are cutting back, one reason. because we don't take care of our miners and we are not producing coal and they don't need to make those big, big, beautiful -- you could call them locomotives, i guess. right? theyver the hell they are, are big and powerful and they don't even like they used to because we don't make our government work for us. they are not working for us. they are working for others.
they are not working for us. so when general electric goes numbers.u see the i see the numbers. i just left parts of virginia and west virginia and the coal , industry is decimated. the miners are out of work. they are totally out of work. there will be no such thing as coal in this country pretty soon. we are talking clean coal. we are talking clean coal. so i was with the miners. we have such tremendous support in west virginia, the mining parts of virginia, all over ohio. because hillary clinton made the statement not so long ago, she said we are going to put the mines and the miners out of business. so, we are not going to let that happened.
. we are not going to let that happen. we are not going to let it happen in pennsylvania, because a lot of your miners have already lost their jobs, but you have a lot of other jobs that are reliant on the mines. like, for example, general electric. what we are going to do is going to be so special. we are going to bring it back, . we are going to bring back our jobs. we are going to bring back our companies. [cheers] mr. trump: when a company wants to leave our country to go to another country and think they are going to make their product and because our politicians are weak, stupid, taken care of by lobbyists. , special interest. they are taken care of by lobbyists. they are taken care of by donors and special interests -- a
friend of mine said, i can't believe we're talking about a deal that took place among ago. it is good for the politicians. they are taking care of by their lobbyists and their donors and the special interests. even though you say we want , as an example general electric , to produce more, if they don't if for some reason one of the donors for crooked hillary clinton doesn't want that to happen, even though it erie, great for pennsylvania, even though it is good for you, even though it is great for the state of pennsylvania, that is not going to happen. by the way, i have to tell you this, when they think they are going to take the companies and rip them out as an example, this area where the state, or any other state, and go to mexico and build massive new plants and employ people other than you and
you are going to lose your job so you're going to get two , part-time jobs that don't add up to half of what used to make, that stuff isn't happening having anymore. so here is what happens. they are going to build their plant. now, if i were here, five years ago and the president obama put me and made me secretary of keeping business in the united states. ok? that is my title. [cheers] mr. trump: secretary of keeping business in the united states. i mean i like the sound of secretary of defense better -- oh, by the way, we are going to build up our military. we are going to be very strong. [cheers] mr. trump: believe me. and we are going to take care of our vets. we are going to take care of our vets, believe me. [cheers] mr. trump: but i like the sound
mr. trump: i will tell you this, i just have to say the bernie , sanders protesters were much stronger. they had much more passion. i have to say. [cheers] all right. you know it is interesting if i , could speak to them for like five minutes, we want a strong military. we want take care of our people, . we want good education. we want good houses. we want good health care. we all want the same things? of course. [cheers] yourrump: so i will be secretary of keeping keeping companies in the united states. so i would go to a company like carrier air-conditioning which decided to leave
indianapolis, indiana and i would say here's a story. we think it's wonderful that you are negotiating with mexico. i am sure you will have a wonderful plan. but here's what is going to happen. if you build a plant, and you fire all these people, 1400 people who were so great to me. that in a won landslide. actually, the timing was good. i know what to do. hillary doesn't know what to do. did you see her yesterday? she has no clue what we're talking about. she has no clue. she has no clue. crooked hillary, she doesn't know anything about it. and by the way if she did, she , couldn't do it anyway because the donors don't want her to do it. there are reasons. but look i would go to them and , say this is to keep them -- i would not even care that much. i will tell you why. here is the story. if you leave, in this case, indianapolis, you are going to go to mexico and make your
air-conditioning units -- every single unit you make that crosses our now very strong border, we are going to charge you 35% of the cost of that unit. ok? 35%. [cheers] mr. trump: so simple. 35%, the cost of that unit. we hope you enjoy your new plant. very hot weather out there, very hot. we hope you enjoy your new plant. but 35% is coming to us. here's what is good to happen, if they haven't moved yet. a lot of them have moved. we've lost thousands and thousands of companies. we've lost millions of jobs. too late. i should have been there 10 years ago. nobody would have left. nobody would have left. because you need the right messenger. i am your messenger in terms of this movement. you need the right person saying it. here is what is going to happen. normally, they would call up
whoever is putting the order down like the new president and they would have lobbyists call up and they would say, hillary, i'm sorry. you can't do that. they gave you $2 million per campaign. you can't do that, hillary. she is like ok, i won't do it. with me, i'm putting my money up, folks. [cheers] we are raising money for reince and the rnc. i funded my primaries and i spent less than anybody else in terms of the majors, so -- wouldn't that be nice? i spent less and won in a landslide. other people spent much, much more, 3, 5 times more and they , came in seventh. who do you want to have as your president?
right? right? [cheers] mr. trump: oh, boy, then they don't like me. most of them have supported us. but some of them just can't get over it. you know what i say to them? get over it. we're just having fun. get over it. you signed a pledge, i hereby guarantee that i will endorse whoever wins. you know the funny thing? all those pledges, they were signed so that i would sign it. and i would have honored it. i will say. even if i wasn't fond or didn't like, i would have honored it. because a pledge is a very important thing. but here is the thing, we are going to take these companies that haven't left -- now i'm , looking at your numbers,
folks. you are not doing too well here. pennsylvania has lost one in three manufacturing jobs since nafta. that is massive. since nafta. nafta was signed by bill clinton. [booing] mr. trump: and i believe it is the single worst trade document ever signed in the history of our country and probably in the history of our world. [cheers] mr. trump: it is one of the most one-sided documents that i've ever seen. it allowed mexico and places to do unbelievably well at our expense. all right? did you see where i say i will renegotiate nafta? tpp, disaster. ok. don't worry. don't worry. and hillary was in favor of tpp.
she said it was the gold standard. thank you for reminding me. i like this guy. it is the gold standard. tpp transpacific partnership. , is going to be, i don't think it can be worse than nafta. it is not to be as bad as nafta. tpp, she said as the gold standard. she's reading it from a teleprompter. it is the gold standard. [laughter] oh, boy.: our country is in trouble. [cheers] mr. trump: our country is in trouble. our country is in trouble. so she said it is the gold mendard, but when she heard make a speech, as i understand it, and she heard me talking negatively about it, as example, they don't talk about the device ration, which is the single greatest tool that these countries are using to kill the united states including china. ,the number one thing is not
mentioned. so complicated this agreement, too many countries. by the way i believe in trade. ,by the way, i believe in trade deals. one country at a time. boom.boom, if they don't do well, if they don't behave, if they want to start evaluating their currency. , we write them a notice like we do in business. we serve them with a 30 day notice. [cheers] mr. trump: and by the way, you are ourw, how great police? [cheers] law and order. we need law and order. and we will have law and order. our police and firemen, are our police are doing a fantastic
job. fantastic job. they are not recognized for the job they do. if they have 500,000 incidents, one bad thing happens. happens and that bad thing is on the news for two weeks and it's a disgrace. we should be very thankful for the job they do. so, pennsylvania is losing a lot of its business. and right now we are sitting here. we are talking. here is another one. go home to mama. go home to mama. [cheers] mr. trump: and your mother is voting for trump. she is voting for trump. [cheers] mr. trump: it's true. it's true. [cheers] mr. trump: by the way, just to interject, i was told this whole area is democratic, meaning democrat.
[booing] mr. trump: and i was told that by a lot of different people outside and then they said i can't believe that you have 10,000 people. you have outside trying to get in. they came up to me, this happens to be a democrat who i happen to know, great guy. he came up to and set up never seen anything like it. you are going to win. you are going to win eureka, pennsylvania and the surrounding area. it will be a landslide. people are tired of lies, tired of losing their jobs, tired of seeing their companies being ripped out and going to other places. they are tired of china coming in and dropping steel all over the place to put your companies out of business, so we have to go to china to get our steel, which is happening very quickly. that is why the steel workers
are with me. that is why the miners are with me. that is why the working people, electricians, the plumbers, the sheet rockers, the concrete guys and gals. they are all, they are with us. you are really rich. how come you relate to these people? well my father built houses and , i used to work in these houses and i got to know the , electricians. i got to know all these people. i got to know the plumbers. the steamfitters, i got to know , them all. i liked them better than the rich people i know. they are better. i like them better. so anyway, we're going to put people back to work. we are not playing games. and it is going to go quickly. by the way, it is going to go quickly. look at this, ok. so, eerie has lost one in three manufacturing jobs. you knew that.
i flew all over. you are looking at the plants, plants that 25 years ago, 20 years ago, 15 years ago, some two years ago were vibrant, but no plant two years ago was too vibrant, but you see them. they are falling over. the rain, the sleet, the snow, the wind. these are great buildings that are falling apart. don't feel bad. all over the country. upstate new york is a disaster. which hillary clinton said she was going to fix, ok. so the washington post is extraordinarily dishonest and that is fine. but they wrote a story, i could not believe i saw the story. they talked about hillary clinton. it was a headline. when she ran for the united
states senate from new york she , said to the people of upstate new york, which is really starting to have problems of her husband's bill with nafta and companies were leaving tremendous unemployment and she said i will turn it around. i will create 200,000 jobs. we will do a great job. guess what? she got elected. she did nothing. the only ones that benefited were the consultants and the people that helped her out. it is a disaster. upstate new york is right now worse than anything you have in the state of pennsylvania. she did nothing. i watched her yesterday, which was hard to do, because she is bor-ing, ok? [laughter] [cheers] mr. trump: i watched her yesterday -- you know, it's funny. i said i was going to renegotiate nafta, and they said
what happens if you can't make a deal and i said we will , terminate and get out. very simple. i've been saying that and have been saying that we will renegotiate trade deals and make great trade deals and all that. she never said that. all of a sudden, she says she will renegotiate trade deals. she is not going to do it, folks. she is going to renegotiate trade deals the same way she was going to put 200,000 jobs in upstate new york. it turned out to be a total fantasy. i have to tell you, i respect the washington post for writing one bad story. you know what they're doing -- the only way she gets elected is if they don't report on her. they don't show her. they have me on so much television. the cnn, you talk about dishonesty. it is called the clinton news network. cnn. [cheers] mr. trump: now, inc. of think of it.
she's hardly ever on. yesterday, they have a scandal with e-mails, another one. i'm not talking about that 33,000 she deleted or got rid of. can you imagine what was on those e-mails? 33,000 e-mails were deleted. and she said, well, it had to do with the wedding and yoga. i give two to yoga. i give five to the wedding. i tell you, the lies and deception. we are running like they run right now in a third world country, folks. ok? you saw what happened. it is running like a third world country. we are being talked about all over the world. nobody can believe it. when they were going over the
charges against hillary clinton, one after another after another after another. however, and yet other people their lives have been destroyed , for doing much less. all right? their lives have been destroyed. [cheers] mr. trump: so now they have a big scandal in new york. it is in the new york papers, but very little. pay, right? pay for play. and it is horrifying. it is horrifying. our government is for sale. our government is for sale. person and what , they're doing is they are trying to not talk about her. take a look. you go to cnn as an example, story after story about trump. story, trump, trump, trump.
and yesterday it was announced that people are tired of negative hit jobs and cnn is starting to do poorly. i like that. i like that. fox has been that treating us fairly. fox has been fair but cnn has , been catastrophic. it is so dishonest. was explaining to me their theory. if they don't report on her, people aren't going to know how bad she is. look at her news conference. she hasn't had a news conference and like 260 days. that last one wasn't a news conference. that was a few of her friends. they asked her a question what , did she say about the circuit, right? i evertell you, have said that? if i ever said that,
short-circuited, if i ever said short-circuited, it would be headlines all over the world. they would call for the death penalty. [laughter] mr. trump: can you imagine if i said that i short-circuited? i stand up. for months in front of massive crowds and she gets 300 people to go to her events. she gets 300 people and then she reads something from a teleprompter and she goes home and goes to sleep. and then she wakes up and goes again. i am telling you, and nobody does anything about it. now me, i stand up here -- i'm not looking at notes. i'm not reading teleprompters. not easy. not easy. not easy. [cheers] but,rump: but, but, remember, but if i make one mistake and he mentioned something wrong and got it wrong
day, it's like headlines all over. she can say she short-circuited up here. i don't want a president who short-circuits. is that ok? [laughter] mr. trump: i don't want a president who short-circuits. we have to deal with isis. we have to deal with china. we have to deal with lots of people. they are not short-circuiting. i don't want somebody that short-circuits. let me just tell you. let me just tell you. over the last little while, every time it is a big deal. when i said that obama and of coarse i am being sarcastic. they know that. said he was the m vp. i said obama is the founder of isis. [cheers] mr. trump: the founder.
and these dishonest media people, the most dishonest people, they said, did he mean that? didn't he mean that? after that, i say a lot. in fact, they like him so much because he has been so weak and so bad. i mean, he let this happen. they had eight states. they had eight countries. there are now now 28 countries. they are expanding. so i said, the founder of isis, obviously i'm being sarcastic. then, then, but not that sarcastic, to be honest with you. [laughter] mr. trump: and they all said he should not say that. they should call him an enabler. call him an enabler. he is an enabler. i said, that doesn't sound the same. these people are the worst. but listen, so i said the
fact,r of isis, and in very soon he is going over to pick up his most valuable player award. did i say that? i say it all the time. so they knew i was being sarcastic. but now they're analyzing. did i really mean that? how could i say that? these people are the lowest form of life. [cheers] mr. trump: i'm telling you. [cheers] mr. trump: the lowest. they are the lowest form of humanity. not all of them. they have about 25% that are pretty good, actually, but most of them. ok, so here's the story, yuri erie has lost a lot. we will stop his countries from taking our jobs. we will stop these countries from taking our companies. hold on. our job will come back.
now i came up with a great plan ,. i'm lowering corporate taxes or so our companies stayed. , so i don't have to make the call. the corporate inversions, we have companies that have to have trillions of outside of our dollars country. they can't get the money back. everybody agrees we should do it. republicans, democrats, everybody agrees. why do we not want them to bring money back? we don't have a president that can go to leaders around the table and in about five minutes let them say, let's bring the money back in so we can work in the country. right? that is what it is. so we are going to bring the money back in, we will lower taxes and we are going to keep , our companies. if our companies want to leave, they will pay a nice big beautiful tax to get their product back in. [cheers] mr. trump: so the existing u.s.
trade deficit with tpp participating nations has already cost pennsylvania 68,000 jobs, folks. no more, folks. we are not going to be the stupid people anymore. we are going to be the really, really smart people. it is going to be america first. america first. america first. [cheers] >>[chanting] mr. trump: first. >>[chanting] mr. trump: so the destruction of manufacturing in pennsylvania was caused by hillary clinton and her husband's disasters trade policies. you take a look at what she has done. at the bidding of our corporate funders, hillary clinton has back every killing trade deal
for decades. she has received so much money. she has approved virtually every tax increase put before her. yesterday, you see, $1.3 trillion and tax increases. highest taxed nation in the land, essentially. we are the highest taxed nation in the world. anywhere in the world. and of the industrialized nations, we are far and away the highest taxation. and she is proposing massive tax increase. folks, we can't do it. [booing] mr. trump: it's going to make our country noncompetitive. it's already noncompetitive. it's going to make our country noncompetitive. and we are not going to do it. i'm proposing a massive tax decrease for the middle class, for business and businesses are , going to pour in.
not since ronald reagan has anything like this been proposed. businesses, instead of leaving because their taxes are so high, they are going to stay. i might not even have to make those calls. if i do, i will, meaning my people will. i would love doing it. i would love telling some guy, you are not moving. mr. president, sir, we would like to move to mexico. if you do, you pay the 35% tax. in that case, i'm not moving. in that case i'm not moving. , [cheers] mr. trump: so easy. so you are a coal industry or , your steel industry which has , been ravaged. your general electric's of the world, which have been ravaged, just ravaged we going to end it. , over the years, i've watched it. for 10 years, 12 years, 15 years. beyond obama. and i have watched as politicians talk about stopping
leaving, from companies from leaving our state. you need strength. our states. i watched. remember they gave the low-interest loans. here's a low-interest loan if you stay in pennsylvania. here's a zero interest loan. you don't have to pay. here is this. here's tax abatement of anything any kind you want. they have money. they want to go out. they want to move to another country and because our , politicians are so dumb, they want to sell their product to us and not have any retribution, not have any consequence. all that is over. i think you understand it. and hillary can't do it. she can't do it because she doesn't have the mentality. she can't do it. she said recently, i don't like donald trump's tone. his tone is not nice. and i said, we have a country that is being taken advantage of by every country in the world. our businesses are being taken,
. our jobs are being taken. everything is been taken. here we have a world where isis is chopping off heads of christians and many others, drowning people in steel cages, burying people in the sand and , we have somebody up there who was to be our president that says i don't like donald trump's tone. [laughter] [cheers] mr. trump: folks, we better get smart folks. we better get smart folks. let's see what happens. we better get smart. [cheers] mr. trump: we better get smart. we better get smart. we better get tough. and if we are not smart and not tough, we will not have a country left. one of the things i have to talk about before we leave our , borders. illegal immigrants are pouring into our country. in fact --
[cheers] mr. trump: i brought something for you people. , here, i brought i had , to do this. i didn't want to depress you. ok, look. the clinton legacy, nearly one in three manufacturing jobs in erie, pennsylvania, sounds and familiar? clinton allowed a certain deal with china to happen. but at this chart. this is 2001. not long ago. congratulations, folks. i hope you're doing well. ok? [booing] mr. trump: i hope you are doing well. i hope you are doing well, but you know what? you can't do well. when you have a government that
is so stupid that is so , incompetent, you can't do well. here's another one, folks. this is what we are talking about. syrian refugees, we have no idea who they are, where they are coming from, no paperwork. [booing] mr. trump: you saw what happened in san bernardino. you saw what happened, frankly, take a look at all over the world. take a look at what is happening. if we don't get smart and if we we don't get smart fast, barack obama is allowing syrian refugees to come into our country by the thousands. now i have as big as part as anyone in the stream and i want to build safe zones and i want the gulf states to pay for it money. they have tons of we will supervise them. we will supervise them. they have to pay for it. we are protecting these people. if it weren't for the united states, those countries would not even exist.
they would be gone. the power we have is so enormous, but we have people who don't know what they have been doing. we have people who don't know what they are doing. so, look at this. syrian refugees admitted to the united states on a monthly basis. look what is happening. look what's happening. [booing] mr. trump: now, in all fairness, we want to help people. can't take a chance. san bernardino, they walk in. start shooting. theystart shooting. paris, the best, the toughest gun laws in the world, paris, france. they walk in. they kill. 130 people. they wound so gravely hundreds of people. now let me just tell you because while we are on the second amendment, right, second amendment. if we had in san bernardino or
in orlando or someplace, somebody in that room like this guy right here, right? or that guy with the blue make america great again hat on or , the guy with the red make america great again hat on or , that woman with the beautiful blonde hair -- i wish i had hair that looked like that. but if we had somebody and they happened to have a gun, san bernardino, they see him come in -- first of all, if they knew there was a gun where the bullets would be flying in the other direction, they probably would not come in, ok? but let's assume they did. the carnage would not have been what the carnage was. we have to protect the second amendment. hillary clinton wants to kill our second amendment. [cheering] mr. trump: wants to kill. so here is our chart. i was thinking about doing that, , i have a lot of
these. i love the people. we have such a movement going on. who likes the snake? who likes the snake? do you like him? here we are with this. we know bad things are going to happen. we know as we allow more and more people to come in from these terror areas, bad things are going to happen. has anybody heard the snake? not that many. should i do it again? [cheers] mr. trump: so think of this, folks. think of this. think of this. this is what is going on in our country with our borders, and by the way, we are going to have a strong border. we will have a wall. it will be a strong wall and mexico is going to pay for. and we have no choice. and we have no choice. but think of this. this is now a situation where this was written by al wilson many years ago. i read and that really pertains to what is happening to the
united states. and it has to do with being fooled. it has to do with a lot of different things. but when you're listening to this, think of our border. think of the people that we are letting in by the thousands. and hillary clinton, you saw those numbers, right? with the charts through the roof? hillary clinton wants to allow 550% more coming into our country. [booing] mr. trump: how stupid are we? so, are you ready? you like it? are you sure? all right. on her way to work one morning, down the path along the lake, a tenderhearted woman saw a poor half frozen snake. his pretty colored skin had been all frosted with the dew. oh well, she cried, i will take you in and i will take care of you. take me in, o tender woman.
take me in, for heaven sake. take me in, o tender woman. sighed the broken snake. she wrapped him up all cozy in a curvature of silk. then laid him by the fireside , with some honey and some milk. now she hurried home from work that night. as soon she arrived, she found that pretty snake she had taken in had been revived. take me in, oh tender woman. o tender woman. take me in, for heaven sake. take me in, o tender woman, side sighed the broken snake. now she clutched him to her
bosom. you're so beautiful, she cried. if i did not take you in, you certainly would have died. now she stroked his pretty skin and then she kissed and held him tight. but instead of saying thank you, that snake gave her a vicious bite. >> that's hillary. >> isis. mr. trump: take me in, o tender woman. take me in for heaven sake. take me in, tender woman, sighed the vicious snake. i saved do, i saved you, i saved you, cried that woman. and you bit 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. [cheering] mr. trump: get ready, folks, get ready. we are led by stupid people. we are led by leaders -- and you know, honestly, i didn't need this. this i did not need. i had a nice life. i built a great company, a great company. some of the great real estate assets of the world. i may never see them. if i win, i may never see them again. and i love them. all over the world. but you know what, this is so important. and i watched what was happening with the iran deal and i watched what was happening with jobs. and i watched what was happening with trade, where china makes $500 billion in trade deficits with us. i looked and i saw.
take a look at mexico. you know the politicians say you will never, ever be able to get mexico to allow you to build a wall. i say, trust me. now they don't say that anymore. now they say they won't put the money up to but the wall. so easy. with mexico, our trade deficit is so massive. they make a fortune off the stupidity of the united states. 100%o will 100%, you hear, pay for the wall. 100%. [cheering] mr. trump: ok? 100%. but the story of the snake is what is happening to our country. we are letting people in. many of these people hate us. many of these people don't have good thoughts. and you see what one person can do, one sick wacko can do in orlando. and then you see his father sitting behind hillary clinton with a big smile on his face. [booing]
with a big fat smile on his face, right? and he was wearing a red hat. and i said, i hope that's not one of my hats. it wasn't. i was concerned. itaw that hat and i hoped doesn't say "make america great again." bad guy. bad guy. a horrendous son. horrendous son. we have to win, folks. we have to win. so important. [cheering] mr. trump: hillary clinton is run by people that do this very professional. they are very good. they keep her out of the spotlight. she doesn't talk to reporters, very rarely. she doesn't do press conferences. she doesn't expose whatever is going on up here, which isn't good.
she doesn't expose her mind to questions. and what they want to do is they fake it try and through. we need strength. we need toughness. we need a strong temperament. we need a strong tone. at the same time -- at the same time -- let me tell you, at the same time, we need real big, beautiful heart because we have , to straighten out health care. obamacare is going to be repealed and replaced. did you see? did you see what is happening with obama care? did you see where the numbers are going up 30%, 40% and 50%? wait until you see what happens on november 1. november 1, they are try to delay it. you're going to get increases the likes of which no country, nobody has ever seen. ok? anybody in the history of health care -- in texas, going through
