[no audio] >> ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the vice president of the united states, joe biden, and hillary clinton. ♪
i can't tell you how important this is to me and vice president biden. we both have a lot of memories of scranton and lake lenola. it is such a nostalgic trip for me, because my brothers are here. we came to lake lenola every summer of my life, and we loved every minute of it. there are a lot of people in this crowd who are family have known, or joe's family have known over the years. we are grateful to each and every one of you. it is wonderful to be here in scranton with senator bob casey.
[applause] ms. clinton: and your congressman, matt cartwright. [applause] and your amazing county recorder of deeds, evan mcnulty. we sure miss that husband of yours. we are thinking about you, and sending you our best wishes. we are also here with the auditor general. of course, as i said, i am here with the wind, the only, vice president joe biden. [applause]
ms. clinton: you know, joe grew up on north washington avenue. no matter how far he traveled, he never forgets where he is from. i have seen him in a lot of settings, in the spotlight as vice president and senator, in quiet moments with constituents, and in the situation room, helping to make decisions that affect our lives and security. wherever he goes, he is always the same guy. he is a fighter for anyone that needs a champion, for towns like scranton, and, above all a , fighter for families. [applause] joe, joe!
ms. clinton: you know, i think he would be the first to say that he cares about your family because of his family. joe sr. and catherine taught joe that all people deserve to be treated with dignity. when you see someone fall, you help them back up. we are all in this together. that is the biden way. we have seen how he fights for working families, because he passionately believes in the basic bargains that make america great that our economy should , work for everyone and not just those at the top. he stands up against injustice. he has led the fight to end violence against women and girls. [applause] ms. clinton: and, he stands up
for people's health, including the project he is now leading on behalf of president obama the , cancer moonshot to help save lives. [applause] ms. clinton: as many of you beau, as wonderful son great father and great public servant, a great human being, passed away last year. this is personal to joe biden. he knows it is personal to a lot of families. that is why he is fighting so hard to make a difference. if i am elected this fall, i am going to ask you joe to continue the important work he has done to help us fight and defeat cancer. [applause] ms. clinton: as someone who has worked with joe for years, first in the senate and then as a
member of the obama-biden cabinet, i can attest to that passion for standing up people and trying to make lives better. it's is what pushes him to make life better every second of every day for all of us. joe and his wonderful wife, jill, have raised their children and grandchildren with those same values. joe, i hope you know how much not just scranton but america loves you and your family. [applause] ms. clinton: it means a great deal to have him by my side. when joe and i were deciding where to have our first campaign rally, there was really only one answer.
scranton is not just joe's hometown, it is also my dad's hometown. while the biden's were on north washington avenue, my family was a few blocks away on diamond avenue. i was christened at the methodist church on 4th street. my grandfather went to work at mill startingace as a teenager. it was not easy work. i learned that business treated its workers right. believe it or not, the scranton lace company, all those years ago, actually offered a profit sharing plan and health benefits at the beginning of the 20th , century. they understood something that a lot of folks have forgotten. [applause] ms. clinton: they understood that their workers were responsible for much of the
success, so it was only fair that they shared in that success and that their families benefited too. because of that job, my grandfather could give my father a better life. my father was able to go to college. he went to penn state, where he played football. [applause] ms. clinton: then, after he got out of penn state, it was 1935. right in the depths of the depression. he was looking for a job, and he heard that a friend of his knew someone that heard someone say that somebody was hiring in chicago. he hopped a freight train from scranton to chicago where he got a job as a salesman. he went into the navy for world war ii. when he got out, he started a small business in chicago, where i grew up. just like his dad before him, my
dad was determined to give us even greater opportunities than he had. to me that is the american , dream. wherever life takes me, i remember i am the granddaughter of a factory worker and a daughter of a small business owner. and i am so proud of it. , [applause] ms. clinton: the story of the rodhams and the bidens is not unique. what is unique is the country where those stories were written. no matter what donald trump says, america is great. [applause] and, the american dream is big enough for everyone to share in its promise. that does not mean we can take
it for granted and just wait for it to happen to us. we have a lot of work to do. here in scranton, you know that. president obama and vice en pull us back from the recession and put us on a stronger footing. i personally do not think they get enough credit for that. under their leadership, we have created 15 million new private sector jobs. 20 million people now have health care. and the auto industry just had , its best year ever. [applause] ms. clinton: so, i believe the job of the next president is to build on that, but to take on the deeper challenges that emerged long before the crisis and have persisted during our recovery. inequality is too high, wages are too low it is still too hard
, for too many to get ahead. my top priority is creating an economy that works for everyone. not just for those at the top. that is why i have set five ambitious goals to get us there. first, we are going to make the biggest investment in jobs since world war ii. [applause] ms. clinton: second, we are going to make college debt-free for all and help millions of people struggling with student debt. third, we are going to crack down on companies that shift jobs and profits overseas. and we are going to reward , companies that share profits with their employees, like the scranton lace company did almost a century ago. fourth -- >> hillary! hillary!
hillary! hillary! ms. clinton: thank you. fourth, we are going to make sure that wall street corporations and the superrich pay their fair share of taxes. [applause] fifth, we are going to respond to the way that american families actually live and work today by making childcare affordable. in today's economy, there is often no parent or grandparent staying home with the kids. we are going to fight for paid family leave because sometimes, you need to take care of your child or spouse or sick parent. you should not lose your job for taking care of them. [applause] ms. clinton: whenever i mention these issues, donald trump always says that i am playing the woman card.
you know what i say, if i am playing the woman card then deal me in. [applause] ms. clinton: i really believe that together this plan will go a long way toward building a stronger, fairer economy where everyone can contribute to growth and share in its rewards. by contrast, what is donald trump's plan? he laid it out last week. even before he did, i did not think it would be good for working americans. but it turned out to be worse , than i ever imagined. i know some of you may have friends in northeastern pennsylvania who are thinking about voting for donald trump. i know, friends should not let friends vote for trump. [applause] ms. clinton: just in case, if
you have a conversation, you should explain that donald trump would give trillions with a t in tax cuts to major companies and wall street money managers. that would explode the national debt and would lead to massive cuts in things like education and health care. he has even called for a new tax loophole. let's call it the "trump loophole." it would allow trump to pay less than half of the current income tax rate for income on many of his companies. he would end up paying a rate lower than millions of middle-class families. that is assuming he pays any taxes at all, because we do not know. we have not seen his tax returns. [applause] ms. clinton: we do know, by looking at the data, that the 400 richest taxpayers in america would get an average tax cut of
more than $15 million a year from the donald trump loophole. ve the trump family $4 billion. but it would do nothing for , 99.8% of all the other americans in our country. so yes, $4 billion in tax cuts for trump and 99.8% of americans get nothing. think of what we could do with those $4 billion. we could pay for more than 47,000 veterans to get a four-year college degree. we could provide a year's worth of health care to nearly 3 million kids. we could fund a years worth of federal assistance to state and local law enforcement.
there are a lot of better ways to spend that money. there is one other part of his plan. he is now saying he wants to help people pay for childcare by excluding those payments from taxation. again, guess who will that will help the most? it will help rich people. they will get $.30 or $.40 on the dollar to pay for their nann ies. hard-working families that cannot afford childcare in the first place will get little to no real help. that is why his childcare plan has been panned by experts across the political spectrum. right now, childcare costs as much as in-state college tuition in most of the country. we need real solutions that are going to work for working people. not just for the well off. to prove that he cares about the issue, trump made a point of
talking about how his businesses offer on-site childcare for workers. that kind of perked me up. if he really did that, it would be a big deal. i wish more companies provided on-site childcare. that would be a huge benefit for employees. but like so much of what he , says, it is not true. it turns out, some of his resort hotels, and clubs offer , childcare services for guests, not employees. just saying. if you stay at a trump hotel, you can enroll your child in something called "trump kids." they get special children's room service, children's spa
services, even a nanny for a fee. if you work for his business, if you clean the rooms, water the bags, --ry peoples bags, you get nothing. [booing] ms. clinton: i am not even sure that donald trump knows that providing a trump kids program for customers is not the same thing as providing real childcare for your workers. just like how his tax breaks for billionaires are not the same thing as a plan to help the american working families. vice president biden has a saying i love. don't tell me what you value, show me your budget and i will tell you what you value. [cheering] ms. clinton: it is pretty clear that donald trump wants to give trillions of tax breaks to people like himself -- like himself, not invest in our teachers or anyone who really
provide services. we face real serious challenges in america. we need serious leadership. this is not a reality tv show. this is as real as it gets. look at what is happening in milwaukee right now. we have urgent work to do to rebuild trust between police and communities and get back to the fundamental principle that everyone should have respect for the law, and everyone should be respected by the law. [applause] ms. clinton: so when all these -- on all these important challenges, you have to ask if trump is up for the job? he is giving a speech about isis today. i have laid out my strategy for defeating isis over many months. we will strike their sanctuaries from the air, and we will support local forces taking them out on the ground. under president obama and vice president biden, we are making progress. we will surge our intelligence so we can detect and prevent
attacks before they happen. we will disrupt their efforts online to reach and radicalized young people in our country. it will not eat easy or quick. but, make no mistake we will , prevail. there is no doubt in my mind. [applause] >> usa! usa! usa! usa! ms. clinton: once again, donald has been all over the place on isis. he talked about letting seriously, -- he talked about syria becoming a free zone for isis. a major country in the middle east that could launch attacks against us and others. he is talking about sending american ground troops. well, that is off the table as far as i am concerned. [applause] ms. clinton: we will wait and see what he says today.
sometimes he says he will not tell anyone what he will do, because he wants to keep his plan "secret." it turns out, the secret is that he has no plan. that was very clear when he said, "i know more about isis than the generals." no, donald, you don't. on top of that, he says more countries should have nuclear weapons, including in the middle east. he talked about walking away from our european allies. to say thatemerity the united states military is a disaster. i wish he had spent as much time as joe and i have meeting the brave men and women of the military, meeting their families, meeting with gold star families.
those are not the words of someone who respects our military and the sacrifice that our young men and women make every single day. [applause] ms. clinton: i said in philadelphia that a man you can bait with a tweet is not a man you can trust with nuclear weapons. it is also not a man you can trust to run our economy, health heal our cities, or be a role model for our children. there is no doubt that donald trump is temperamentally unfit and totally unqualified to be president of united states and commander-in-chief. [applause] ms. clinton: my friends, america deserves a president who can get the job done, bring us together and not tear us apart, and give
dass and deliver real results for hard-working americans. we cannot win this election without you. i'm asking you to join right now. i am asking you to take out your phone and text "join" or go to hillaryclinton.com. we are hiring organizers right here in pennsylvania and across the country. e are going to run a rigorous we're going to be building the future that you and your families deserve. and i am so sure we can do this, especially with this man, fighting alongside us just like he always has. so scranton, please let's give it up for the vice president of he united states, joe biden! cheers and applause]
vice president biden: hello, folks! it's good to be home! folks, let me tell you what scranton does deserve. well, thank you. scranton deserves what it's always deserved because it's made up of so many people with grit and courage. i mean this sincerely from the bottom of my heart. with grit, courage, determination who never ever ever give up. they deserve someone who not only understands them. they deserve someone who's with them. and they deserve someone who's ade of the same stuff. that's hillary clinton.
[cheers and applause] it's good to be home with so many friends as i look around. i matter, some of the people in the reception line said, my aunt owns your house. tell her i'm coming. i'm coming hom. i was there when i was running and up in the bedroom, written on the wall is joe biden slept here. and then it said lived here. m glad they added the "lived here" part. you know, i'm often asked why we moved from green ridge to klyamont, dwoir and then wilmington. amont is a suburb of
wilmington. it's because of john casey. the caseys lived in the corner. i'm midway between bobby's dad and bobby. and i knew one of us was going to make it out of green ridge. i knew it wasn't going to be me. i so had to move. there was too much casey talent. bobby, you're a great friend and a great, great united states senator, thank you. [cheers and applause] dware, ay in southern they talked to you like this. that boy, he married up. always seeking influence. but you got it, man. and matt, you're doing a wonderful job and have become a very dear friend of mine. thank you. [applause] i've been home since this time but i stood here eight years ago
kicking off our campaign with hillary and bill clinton at my side having my back. it was just me up here. they came to show their support. and i want to make it clear that as scranton has always had my back, we, in fact, all of us are going to have your back, hillary. [cheers and applause] scranton has been so -- some of the folks -- some of the folks in our administration were there on election night when the results were coming in. give you -- i give you my word as a biden, i ask and only one question. what did we do in the north east? we won by a larger margin than we had before. and the rest didn't matter. i took full credit for it. nothing to do with it. [laughter]
you know, if you listen to barack obama you'd think i was a kid that just climbed out of a box from with a lunch scranton. well, i am from scranton and i was a kid at one time. but so often -- quite frankly my people in delaware resened -- i represented them for 36 years, u.s. senator and 44 years in high public office and i swear to god, hillary, there's a parade that started in the fourth of july about just as i was getting started in 1972. and it was called the hokesen parade. it's right on the pennsylvania boarder. from the time my boys were then 3 and 4 years old -- 4 and 5 years old -- actually 3 and 4 years old, they were in the parade with me.
and so when my bo became -- and he was the most popular politician in delaware, i would tag along with him not. -- with him. no, in the parade. so one thing i would tie to do after the people in delaware were so generous and with bo as attorney general, i'm trying to go back and do as many things in the last year at home in delaware to show my affection and my appreciation. and so i was in the fourth of july parade in hokesen surprising the press and everyone because i was there. and there were thousands of people there. many of the same people awaited five hours in line to pay respects at my son's viewing. and i was there to thank them for the overwhelming support they gave me for all those years. and as i continued along the parade room two guys came
running up to me, big guys, bigger than me, secret service is about to have a heart attack. and they said joe, what in the hell is this stuff from scranton. it.re from clamont god darn you're from delaware, aren't you, joe. i love scranton. it is my home. you know what, shome where your character is stamped. where it's stamped into your soul. where your view of the world and your place in that world began. for me that was 2446 north washington avenue around my grandfather's table where i learned that money doesn't determine your net worth, that no one -- that no one -- i mean this sincerely. this isn't hyperbole.
i learned that no one is more worthy than you and everyone is your equal. i learned from my father -- mother and sazz she said so many times. she said joey, look at me, you're defined by your courage and you're redeemed by your loyalty. [applause] she says go on to say everybody's had tough times. as long as you're alive, you're have to strive until you've seen the face of god. what i learned from my father is that i could be anything i wanted to be. this is not a joke. this is real. that the measure of your character is not whether you get knocked down, you fall, because you will. the measure is how quickly you get up.
i learned -- i learned about resilience from my father who like many of you and many of your parents made what i call the longest walk, the longest walk any man or woman could make is a short flight of stairs to their child's bedroom to say i'm sorry, we can't live here anymore. we lost the house or daddy and mommy doesn't have a job. i remember my dad making that walk moving us to my grandfather's home. i remember -- but what i remember most was insane. but i promise you everything -- everything -- everything -- you can't go back to st. paul's. you can't play in the little league anymore. but i promise you, everything's going to be ok. and he meant it. he knew it. because he used to -- it used to
be a basic bargain. it used to be a bargain if you worked like hell or the outfit you worked with. you got to participate. that's the bargain. and what hillary's all about is making sure that every one of you -- every one of you can look your child and grandchild in your eye, honey, i mean this sincerely, everything's going to do be ok. think how many people you know who don't feel like they can say that right now. my father when he said it on the balls of his heels, he meant it because he thought this is just a clear shot if you worked hard. everything i learned at my father and grandfather's table is reinforced by my neighbors and my friends all around this town. independence, resiliency.
when i moved away from scranton, i was going into fourth grade but i never left. i spent summers, holidays, college weekends, weddings, funerals, first communions, bar mitzvahs. the park, not as the lake. i always remember -- i always remember what i've been taught what you all believe up here. everyone's entitled to be treated with dignity and respect no matter -- no matter who they are. that america -- that america -- and hillary gets this better than anybody else, that america can be defined in one single possibilities. that's the thing about america. that's the thing about scranton. that's the thing about who we
are. anything is possible. that's the america i know and ladies and gentlemen, that's the america hillary clinton knows. cheers and applause] you know the people i trust most in public life, i've been doing this a long time. i trust the people where the feeling stars in their gut, moves to their heart and then as articulated by a great mind. hillary understands the hopes and aspirations of the people in clay mon and scranton and every ranton and claymont in the united states of america. i've known her for 30 years. i've known her before she became first lady. when she became first lady, during his years in the senate. we had breakfast at home. i became the obama whisperer.
she'd look at me and she'd say, what did he mean by that? he loves her. everybody knows this has never been an issue with hillary by ke it's a gigantic issue her opponent. by the way, my family is right there. i didn't even see you! secret service, you see that beautiful young girl there, make sure she gets back when i leave the stage because we're not leaving until i get a hug. anyway, sorry, guys. kind of a family thing. but look, think about it. everybody is known from day one how smart, how bright hillary is. everybody knows how tough she is. [cheers and applause] but what i don't think everybody knows enough about it may be the
difference between the irish catholic and the methodist piece here, we wear everything on our sleeve. i don't think they fully understand how passionate she is about what she does. i want you to listen just for a minute. i don't even want you to clap. because i want to make sure you understand what i know about her . you know, she understands that that college loan to get a bright young girl or boy to school is about a lot more than whether or not they're going to get a chance. it's about the pride and the dignity of the parent who looks at that child. i mean this sincerely. please don't. just listen to this. i remember i was -- i went down to my dad's place of work to pick up a car. and he was wandering back and forth in the parking lot.
the secretary said he's out there. i walked out. and he said, joey, i'm so sorry. i'm so damn sorry. this is before cell phones. i thought something happen. i went to the bank today, honey, they won't lend me the money to get you to school. i'm so ashamed. hillary understands that the most damaging thing to a parent is to look at a talented child or a sick child or a child in need and not be able to do nything. she's understood that for years, children anton that went to bed thinking my god, what happens if she develops breast cancer or he develops cancer, we lose everything. what do we do then?
y family remembers those days. she gets it. she understands what it will mean and i really mean this. it's more than about her. she understands what it means for these beautiful young girls and i'm being serious now, these three beautiful little girls i'm looking at now, what it will mean to them when it's president hillary rodham clinton. [cheers and applause] t will change their lives. it will change their lives. it will prove that my daughter and my granddaughters can do anything my son and grandsons can do. that's what it will mean. cheers and applause]
it's consequencetial. so let me say this as clearly as i can if you live in a neighborhood like i did or where my wife jill did, if you worry about your job getting decent pay, if you worry about your children's education, if you're taking care of your parent after losing the other one then there's only one person in this election who will possibly help you and that is hillary clinton! cheers and applause] [crowd chanting "hillary"] folks, she's always been there. it's not a joke. you know, you use phrases like that, but she has always been there. that's her life story. and let's take the obvious. that is not donald trump's life
story. senator ted kauffman who you know very well, hillary, served with you, used to be my administrative assist at that particular time for years and year, pro-fessor at duke. the warden school, that doesn't have a trump sign up, anyway. that said, the difference between success and a genuine success -- excuse me, a minimum success and a real success is someone who had nothing and makes $1 million is a real success. someone who inherents $1 million and makes $20 million -- no, they're not a bum but they're a mere success. no, some are bums but not all. look, let me tell you the part that bothers me and you know, as hillary will point out and knows that no one ever doubts i mean what i say.
the problem i -- is i sometimes say all that i mean. but let me tell you what really bothers me the most and maybe this only works where i grew up, i don't know. but you know, what bothers me st about donald trump is his cynicism is unbounded. no, i really mean this. think of this for a minute because we're all raised in this area. you're different ethnicities, different religions, different backgrounds. but there's one thing i've noticed all the years i've spent and i've always always come home. and that is that the way that you were raised if you ever showed a lack of empathy for someone in trouble, if you ever summed up a thought the phrase he's most proud of "you're
fired". think about the phrase "you're fired." no, all kidding aside, i really mean this. maybe it's just me. but think about what your mother or father or grandmother or grandfather would have said to you. think about everything you learned as a child. i really mean this. no matter where you were raised, how can there be pleasure in division in "you're fired." and he's trying to tell us he cares about the middle-class. give me a break. and to repeat myself, it's just a bunch of malarkey. it make makes to sense. none, none, none, none. [applause] this guy doesn't care about the middle-class. and i don't even blame anymore a sense because he doesn't understand it.
he doesn't have a clue. no, he really -- he really doesn't. he doesn't have a clue. and by the way, there's something else he has no clue about. that is nothing to do with being a democrat or republican. i have worked -- i have worked with eight presidents of the united states. i have served with hundreds of senators, only 13 senators in the history i'm embarrassed to say have served as long as i have. dozens of secretaries of state and secretaries of defense of both parties and i can say without hesitation, my word as a biden, no major party nominee in the history of the united states of america has -- don't cheer or applaud, just listen. as known -- has known less or been less prepared to deal with our national security than donald trump. and what absolutely amazes me --
what absolutely amazes me that he doesn't seem to want to learn it. no, and i really mean it. he doesn't seem to want to learn it. he doesn't seem to think it matters. his man is totally, thoroughly unqualified to be president of the united states of america. cheers and applause] he not only lacks the temperament -- people say he lacks the temperament. i feel better if that's all he lacked. on every issue that matters most to our security, donald trump has no clue what it takes to lead this great country. now, look, you know, if i had said this eight, 10 months ago you'd say, well, i'm being bipartisan. well, i am bipartisan. i make no apology first that. i'm not mean about it.
and as hillary will tell you i don't know any other democrat that has a positive relationship with others. but having said that look at the people who have come out. scores and scores of the most prominent republican thinkers in the national security field. no ideae out and he has what he's talking about. even confronted with the fact he doesn't want to learn them. he reveal as profound misunderstanding what's at stake. listen to him. he belittles our closest alleys. nations that stand with us are part of our security network that our are with us when we address every international challenge. those who fought and bled alongside us for decades. he wants to toss those relationships aside like the ones that that like his failed business ventures or something. in the meantime, he talks
cavalierly about encouraging other nations as hillary pointed out to develop nuclear weapons as if nuclear war is some trivial affair. does he not understand we wrote japan's constitution to say they could not be a nuclear power? where was he in school? someone wolak this is judgment cannot be -- who lacks this judgment can no be -- god forbid the president and i had to make a decision, the codes are we me. he is not qualified to know the code! he can't be trusted! i was proud my son bo served for a year in iraq came back a highly deck crated soldier. i must tell you that donald
trump as president, i would have thrown my body in front of him. no, i really mean it. to keep him from going if the judgment was based on trump's decision. every president since harry truman has looked toward europe, whole free and at peace. one of the most consequential people right now who have trying to undo that is a man donald trump says he's trying to do that. i'm not big on any character assassination. i'm trying like that old program of old and just the facts man, nothing but the facts. [laughter] that was joe friday, actually. [laughter] vladimir s he admires putin. no, it's more than boo. here's the deal.
what's is putin's objective as hillary knows as well as i know dealing with him and the president has as well as john kerry. putin determined to crack nato and crack the european alliance. that is his overarching, overwhelming interest. i'm heading from here getting on a plane and flying to kosovo then to serbia. then i'm going to the baltic states. you know one of the reasons i'm going is to make sure to reassure those who are members of nato and the baltic states we mean what we say. we mean what we say. the sacred alliance of 60 years. [applause] because they're worried. listening to his comments about ukraine. you think russia will not move on ukraine. they've already moved on ukraine nd occupy cry -- crimea.
this guy's shame has no limits. he's gone so far as to ask putin and russia to conduct cyber attacks against the united states of america. no, no, even if he is joking which he's not -- even if he's joking, what an outrageous thing to say. look, folks these are not isolated examples. he's even showers praise on saddam husain one of the vilest dictators of the 20th century, a man who putter >> attacks against israel because he was a killer of terrorists. that's why he liked saddam. he would have loved stallen. look, this says a lot about his approach that explains why he so
often embraces tack tix of terrorist enemies themselves, religion intolerance casting entire communities culpable for the acts of a few in the community, torture when when he the it's illegal even if military would say that's not the orders. before a man or a woman is elected that they would not follow his orders, threatening to kill innocent family members of suspects, indiscriminate bombing what he calls for. that's how anyone hoping to lead this democracy to behave. he likes auto cats. he call first a ban on muslim in the united states slandering proud muslim parents of a gold star family who paid the ultimate sacrifice. threatening to send america
citizens to guantanamo. i tell you this guy is ok. trump's ideas are not only profoundly wrong they're very dangerous and very un-american. they reveal a profound ignorance of our constitution. it's a recipe for playing into the hands -- you've been standing so long. it's a recipe for playing in hands of terrorists and their propaganda. last year's isil's top leader who we've been tracking since we got bin laden, hillary, me, john, everyone else, the president. his name is el baghdaddy. baghdadi.ealed -- a he revealed that he wants the ew saids to actively destroy -- meaning anyone where ristians and muslims live he
calls the gray zone. muslims in the west will have to quickly find themselves between either apost size and therefore escape prosecution. how does he make the case? by pointing out that no muslim is welcomed in the west. isil wants to manufacture a clash of sivization between us versus them. trump is trying to give them exactly what they want. last week he stood in front of a crowd in florida and said president obama found a terrorist organization isil. now, look -- this i really should end with. you know, that's an outrageous statement. but let me tell you why it's a dangerous statement. why as he might say the bad guys
are listening. yesterday, the head of hezbollah, a terrorist organization, iran's top terrorist surrogate and a direct threat to our ally israel in the trump's claim entire muslim world around the world that president obama founded isil. you say what difference does that make? here's exactly what the leader of hezbollah said referring to trump's accusation. said this -- this is not -- this is a spokesman for isil -- i mean, excuse me for hezbollah. this is not a simple speech referring to trump. this -- i'm quoting him. this is an american presidential candidate. this was spoken on behalf of the american republican party and he meaning trump has the data and documents to back it up.
if my son were still in iraq and i say to all those who are there , the threat to their life has gone up a couple of clicks -- it's gone up a couple of clicks. you saw what's happening in turkey where some of turkey are accusing us of being part of the coup attempt. ladies and gentlemen does he have any idea the adverse consequence these outlandish comments have on our allies, our friends and the physical safety of our troops. trump is already making our country less safe. and i'm testing your stamina. andet me go to the end here say. cheers and applause]

donald trump doesn't know, it's never ever ever been a good bet to bet against the united states of america. [cheers and applause] give it a fair shot. give it a fair chance. americans have never never ever let their country down. never. and ladies and gentlemen, in scranton and in america, we never bow. we never bend. we never kneel, we never yeeled, we own the finish line! that's who we are! we are america! and she gets it! we're second to none. and hillary clinton is going to write the next chapter in america history. cheers and applause]
