[applause] since this home time, but i stood here eight years ago kicking off our campaign. hillary and bill clinton at my side. i want to make it sheer -- clear that as scranton has always had , we and fact, all of us, will have your back, hillary. [applause] scranton has been met -- some of folks in our administration were there on election night when the results were coming in. igive you my word as a biden ,sked one and only one question
what did we do in the northeast? margin thanlarger we had before. the rest did not matter. full credit for it. nothing to do with it. you know, if you listen to , you would think i was a kid that just climbed out of a with a lunchbox. i am from scranton and i was a kid at one time. so often my people in delaware have represented them for 46 years as a u.s. senator. 44 years and high public office. i swear to god there is a parade started on the fourth of july just as i was getting started in 1972.
it is right on the pennsylvania border. from the time my boys were then old, fourfour years and five years old -- three and four years old, they were in the parade with me. -- beau -- iw would tag along with him, for real, and the parade. one thing i am trying to do, have been sople generous to me after all these ,ears and the attorney general i am trying to go back and do as to show my affection and appreciation. i was in the fourth of july parade recently surprising the press and everyone because i was there. there were thousands of people there. many same people waited five
hours and line to pay respects at my son's viewing. think them for the overwhelming support they gave me for all those years. as i continued along the parade route, two guys came running up to me. secret service was about to have a heart attack. they said, what in the hell is all this stuff about scranton, you are from clay mount. so you all have to write a note ,nd tell them i love scranton it is my home, but home is where is stamped.er where it is stamped into your soul. where your values are set. where your view of the world and your place in the world began. me, 2446 north washington
avenue around my grandfather's table is where i learned that money does not determine your net worth. that no one, i mean it sincerely , this is deadly earnest, i've learned no one is more worthy than you and everyone is your equal. mother, andom my she said this so many times. me.would say look at remember, you are defined by yourtable is where i learned tht money does not determine your courage, and you are retained by your loyalty. [applause] she would go on to say, because everyone has had tough times. what i learned here from my father is i could be anything i
wanted to be. anything could be accomplished. this is not a joke. this is real. that's a measure of your character is not whether you get fall, becausend you will, but the measure is how quickly you get up. learned about resilience from my father, who like many of you and many of your parents made call the longest walk. the longest walk is up a short to their stairs child's bedroom to say honey, i am sorry. we cannot live here anymore. we lost the house. or daddy and mommy do not have a job. dad making that walk moving us to our grandfathers home. what i remember most is i you everything.
i promise you everything is going to be ok. i meant it, he knew it. he used to be of basic bargain. they did well. you got to participate. bargain. what hillary is all about is you canure every one of look your child and grandchild in the eye and say i mean it sincerely. everything is going to be ok. think of how many people you who do not feel like they can say that right now. my father when the senate on the balls of his heels, he meant it.
everything i learned is ran for neighbors and friends all around this town. pride, independents, resilience. when i moved away from scranton, was in the fourth grade, but i never left. spent summers, holidays, college weakened, weddings, mitzvahs, and for it was not the lake. , everyone ismber entitled to be treated with dignity and respect, no matter who they are. that america, and hillary gets
this better than anyone i know, america can be defined in one single word, possibilities. that is the thing about america. that is the thing about scranton . thing about who we are. anything is possible. that is the america i know. america hillary clinton knows. [applause] the people that i trust most, and i am in doing this a long trust the people where gut,eeling starts in their moves to their heart and then .rticulated by a great mind hillary understands the hopes and aspirations of the people in claymont, scranton, and every scranton and claymont in the united dates of america. yearsnown her for over 30
. i knew her before she was first became firste lady. when we served together in the senate. we would have breakfast in my home. i became the obama whisperer. [laughter] she would look at me and say that?id he mean by knows this has never .een an issue -- by the way,de my family is right there. i did not even see you. secret service, you see that beautiful young girl right there? she gets back when i leave the stage. we are not leaving till i get a hug. guys. kind of a family thing. everybody is known as they won
-- from day one how smart and great hillary is. everybody knows how tough she is. [applause] but what i don't think everybody about, and may be the irish catholic and methodist here, we where everything on our sleeves. i do not think they fully understand how passionate she is about what she does. i want you to listen for a minute. i don't want you to clap. yount to make sure understand what i know about her. that the college loan to get a bright young girl or boy to school is about a lot more than whether or not they will get a chance. it is about the pride and dignity of the parent who looks child.
i mean that sincerely. i remember i went down to my dad's place of work to pick up a and was wondering back and forth through the parking lot. the secretary said he is out there. , walked out, and he said joey i am sorry, i am so jim sorry. he set i went to the bank today, honey, they will not lend me the to get you to school. i am so ashamed. understands that the most damaging thing too apparent is to look at a talented child or child in need and not be able to do anything. she has understood that for years. millions of people here in scranton and claymont and all
across america went to bed ceiling thinking sheod, what happens if develops breast cancer or he develops lung cancer? we lose everything. come a we do then you .ot of you remember those days my family remember those days. she gets it. she understands what it will mean. it is more about her. these three beautiful little now, what looking at them when it is president hillary rodham
clinton. it will change their lives. it will change their lives. my daughter and granddaughter can do anything my son and grandson's can do. that is what it will mean. it is consequential. as clearly as i can, if you live in a neighborhood like i grew up in, my wife jill grew up in, , youu worry about your job worry that your children's , taking care of an elderly parent after losing another one, there is only one person in this election who will possibly help you, and that is hillary clinton. [cheers and applause] >> folks, she has always been
there. it is not a joke. she has always been there. life story. let's state the obvious, that is not donald trump's life story. senator ted kaufman, whom you .now very well he used to be my administrative assistant for years and years. this step the reason between --cess and genuine success excuse me, a minimum success under real success is someone who has nothing and makes $1 million is a real success. someone who inherits a million and makes 20 million, they are bomb, but a mere success.
some are bombs. not all. let me tell you the part that bothers me. hillary wellpoint out and no one ever doubts i mean what i say. let me tell you what really most.s me maybe this only works where i grew up. what bothers me most about is the cynicism is unbound thing. think about this for a minute. you are raised in the area, different ethnicities, different backgrounds. i haves one thing noticed all the years i have sent. come home.ys you werehat the way
raised, if you have ever shown a lack of empathy for someone in trouble, if you have ever summed up or thought the phrase he is .of, you're fired think about the phrase, you're fired. all kidding aside. maybe it is just me. about what your mother or grandmother or father would have said to you. everything you learned as a child. i really mean it. the matter where you were raised. how can there be pleasure in division and you are fired? he is trying to tell us he cares class.he middle give me a break. is suchepeat myself, it a bunch of malarkey.
none, none. this guy does not care about the middle class. i don't even blame him and a sense because he does not understand it. clue.s not have a way, there is something thathe has no clue about has nothing to do with being a democrat or republican. i have worked with a president of the united states. served with hundreds of .enators only 13 of surface long as i have. doesn't secretary -- dozens of state and i can , no majort hesitation history inee in the
america,d states of don't year, just listen, has less or been less prepared to deal with national security. what absolutely amazes me is he does not seem to want to learn it. not want to seem that she does not seem to want to it.n to think itseem matters. this man is totally and thoroughly unqualified to be president of the united states of america. [applause] -- lacks theikes temperament -- i would feel better if that is all he lacked. every issue that matters most to trump hasty, donald
no clue what it takes to leave this great country. now look, if i had said this ago, you10 months would say i am being partisan. i am partisan. i am not mean about it. i do not know any more democrat that has a more positive republicans with and i do in the united states senate. but having said that, look at the people that come out. scores and scores of the most inminent republican thinkers .he national security feels they come out to both political parties. he has no idea what he is talking about. factsonfronted with the he does not want to find them. he deals with the profound misunderstanding of what is at stake. he belittles our closest allies .n this hemisphere and europe
nations who stand with us are networkour security that are with us when we address challenge.national those who fought and bled alongside us for decades. to toss those relationships aside like his failed business venture or something. talks meantime, he covering about developing nuclearweapons as if war is a trivial affair. does he not understand we wrote japan's constitution to say could not be a nuclear power. schoolas he in [laughter] ? [laughter] someone who lacks this judgment cannot be trusted. me.e is a guy that follows .as the nuclear codes so up for bid anything happened he has theident, codes. he is not qualified to know the code. he cannot be trusted. [applause]
proud -- my son served for a year. came back a highly decorated soldier. i must tell you, had donald , i would president have thrown my body in front of him. , to keep him it from going if the judgment was decision.rump's every president since harry truman has looked toward free in that piece. one of the most consequential people right now who is trying to undo that is a man donald trump says see admires. i am not big on character assassination. i really mean that. i am just trying to run on the facts, nothing but the facts.
that was joe friday actually. but he says he admires vladimir putin. no, no, no. here is the deal, what is -- hillary knows as well as anyone dealing with putin as i have an it putin is determined to crack nato and alliance.european that is his overarching, overwhelming interest. i am heading from here, getting two kosovoand why in and then serbia and then the baltic states. you know one of the reasons i'm going is to make sure to reassure those members that we mean what we say. we mean what we say, the sacred alliances asked he years.
because they are worried. he assures us russia will not move on ukraine. have artie moved on ukraine and occupied crimea. gotten so far as to ask putin and russia to conduct cyber attacks against the united states of america. joking, which he even if he is joking, what an outrageous thing to say. look folks, these are not isolated examples. he is even showered praise on saddam hussein, a man who repeatedly backed terror attacks against israel because he was so -- supposedly a killer of
terrorists. liked saddam. stalin. have loved this says a lot about his approach. it explains why so often tactics of enemies themselves, religious intolerance, casting entire .ommunities as culpable torture when he knows it is illegal and says he would still on the military commanders if they would not obey his orders. when can you think of an ever in history where military commanders have said before a man or woman is elected that follow hisnot orders? threatening to kill innocent suspects.bers of indiscriminate bombing was what he calls for. that is how hoping anyone -- how
anyone hoping to leave the greatest democracy in the world behave? calling for a ban on muslims in the united states. parentsng proud muslim of a gold star family. threatening to send american citizens to guantanamo? i will tell you, this guy is ok. trump's ideas are not only wrong, they are very dangerous and un-american. they reveal the profound ignorance of the constitution. for playing into the hands of the human standing for so long. it is a recipe for playing into terrorists and their propaganda. last year isis'top leader who we have been tracking since we got bin laden, hillary, john, the president, his name is albert .addy
he said the goal is to compel crusaders to actively the gray zones themselves, meaning anywhere where christians and muslims zone.e called the gray muslims in the west, he says, will have to quickly find choices,s between two either apostates size or islamic eight,e escape prosecution. how does he make the case? by pointing out no muslim is welcome in the west. isis once to manufacture a class of civilizations between us and them. them is trying to give exactly what they want. stood in front of a crowd in florida and said president obama founded a terrorist organization for isis.
now look, that is an outrageous , but let me tell you why it is a dangerous statement. why as he might say the bad guys are listening. yesterday the head of hezbollah, iran'srist organization, top terrorist circuit and direct allies repeated trump's claim in the entire world and around the world that president obama founded isis. exactly what the leader of hezbollah said referring to accusation. spokesman for hezbollah. this is not a simple speech referring to trump.
this is an american presidential candidate. 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 that are there, the threat to their life has gone up a couple of clicks. some in turkey are accusing us of being a part of the coup attempt. ladies and gentlemen, does he have any ideas at first these outlandish comments have on the physical troops? i am
testing your stamina. so let me go to the end here. [applause] hillary has forgotten more about american foreign policies and entire team will ever understand. gentlemen hillary has tested.re, she has been herve been in the room with as we join with the president's leadership. sent some of these killers to hell at our weekly breakfast on the international stage. admirestrong, respected,
-- admired. there is nothing that she does understand about america's place in the world. ladies and gentlemen, because she knows one thing, that donald know, it hast never been a good bet to bet united states of america. give it a fair shot. give it a fair chance. americans have never let their country down. never. ladies and gentlemen -- ladies allow,tlemen, we never we never bend, we never kneel, own the yield, we finish line. she gets it. [applause]
>> c-span's washington journal life every day with news and policy issues that impact you. clintonk, hillary revealed her economic plan with the country p coming up this morning we will discuss those .lans with andy green then, stephen diamond, political editor for "the washington times" on the obama administration's plans to accept 10,000 syrian refugees this year and the debate surrounding the
refugee program. the sure to watch c-span's washington journal life beginning at 7:00 eastern this morning. join the conversation. >> donald trump gave a foreign-policy speech on monday in ohio. previous comments calling nato obsolete, saying he wants to work with nato. he was introduced by rudy g at giuliani -- rudy giuliani and mike pence. it is just over one hour. [applause]
mr. giuliani: it's truly an honor for me to be with you particularly on the occasion of the talk that donald trump is going to give today about the danger that we face from radical islamic terrorism. notice i used the words radical islamic terrorism. [applause] donald trump is our only hope for change in the way in which we approach islamic extremists terrorism. he is our only hope for change. he is going to describe to you the america that president obama, and the person he, unfortunately and i believe now probably believes mistakenly, was selected as his secretary of state, hillary clinton.
he will describe the world they were handed. then he's going to describe the world as it is now. in other words, the damage they have done, particularly in the middle east but all throughout the world. in almost every area that we can think of things are worse today than they were on the day hillary clinton were walked into the state department. i think history will write that she was the worst secretary of state at least in our lifetime. [applause] what have they left us? they have left us a government that used to be on offense against islamic extremists terrorism, radical terrorism to a government that's now. on defense, waiting for the next attack. isn't that what were doing? we are waiting for the next attack. god forbid here in america or here in paris or london, i have a friend who left to london
yesterday and he was afraid to go to london. you know why he was afraid to go to london because we don't know where they're going to strike next. that's why 70% of the american people today are afraid. this is the world that hillary clinton created for us on all of those thousands of miles of trips which amounted to a much worse world than the one she was given. maybe it would have been better if she had stayed home. [applause] she and the president are afraid to even name our enemy much less confront them and defeat them. donald trump has the intellect, the stamina and the strength to confront our enemies. no one doubts that. and he has the temperament to win she is running on her experience. [laughter]
i used to be the united states attorney in the associate attorney general of the united states. i hired many lawyers, tia agents, fbi agents and on and on. i had read many background reports. if i were to read a background report on someone who had been extremely careless with top-secret material, i couldn't hire them. in other words she couldn't be hired as an assistant u.s. attorney or an fbi agent, a cia agent, she couldn't be hired for any job in the government nor could she be hired by a contractor who was doing work with the government because she has a very, very bad security record. she was extremely careless in handling our top-secret material and she wants to be president. she has made millions and millions and millions and millions of dollars and her husband. you know what his name is. they have turned the state department into a pay to the clinton foundation to play with the department racketeering enterprise.
do you know what a racketeering enterprise is? it's a racketeering influenced corrupt organization. that is what the clinton foundation is. it is a racketeer influenced corrupt organization put together for the enrichment of the clintons and selling america out to russian oligarchs, to money launderers and to crooks all over the world. read the book clinton cash. adam don't have time to tell you about all of it. then make it short and you will cover about ten pages worth of what i would consider straight out crimes. she has destroyed more e-mails than i have ever written. [applause]
but of course, i don't do yoga. we can can now see why she destroyed those e-mails. the e-mails show the connection between the racketeering enterprise i just described to you. it shows the connection between the people who were paying millions to the clinton foundation and to bill clinton in speaking, a one point to million dollars speaking fee, one point to million dollars to give one speech i mean he's a good speaker but one point to million just at the time hillary is calling up the treasury department and telling them to go easy on ubs. gosh almighty. as an x prosecutor i would love to get my hands on that case. man could i nail her on hours. well, enough about her because we aren't going to have to think
about her after november goes past. donald trump is very fortunate to have mike pence as his partner. mike's background is exactly a complement to donald trump, meaning he is exactly what donald trump needs and donald trump is exactly what he needs and they are both exactly what america needs as a member of the foreign affairs and judiciary committee and during the time of september 11 when we went through the worst foreign attack since the war of 1812, remember we didn't start this war, they did. we don't want this war, they do. they didn't start it in 2001, they attacked the world trade
center in 1993. they attacked it under the ideology of radical islamic extremism to create a caliphate, to destroy christians, jews, nonbelieving muslims from their point of view and other people. mike pence understands this. from his time on the foreign affairs committee, from his very, very timely visit which i remembered to ground zero when we were in desperate need of help, he was there and from his work on judiciary committees in helping to advance the patriot act, by the way under those eight years before obama came along we didn't have any successful radical islamic terrorist attack in the united states. they all started when clinton and obama got into office. he's also been in business then
you know better than i do what a great governor he is of your state, what he has done for your state and house he's improved it and helped it and left it in tremendous condition. i am, when it gets to the state of indiana, we are going there next. youngstown ohio, i love youngstown ohio. so donald trump is very fortunate to have mike pence and i am very honored to introduce him because i've been a great admirer from the time he was in the united states congress through the time that he really has taken indiana to heights
that, gosh if we could take the federal government there we would all be in great shape. all of you in ohio which is a state that i also love very much, you have to support mike, you have to support donald but here's the most important thing. our only hope for change, you have to support them because they are the ones who are fighting for the regular americans. they are fighting against the establishment in washington. they are the ones fighting against it the lobbyists and the people who control washington. and, the press that is complicit complicit in it, they are not hiding fighting the press because they're criticizing them, they're fighting the press for you so you can get the
truth, so you can get a fair presentation of the facts. when they fight the press, it's not because they're thin skinned or can't take it. they are both big tough guys who have been through a lot. they can take a lot. nothing's going to hurt them. they have been through it all. they are fighting the battle for you so that you and your children and my children and have a fair chance, equal treatment on the news pages, fair press on both sides. it is my honor to introduce to youngstown, ohio, the governor of indiana and the next vice president of the united states mike pence. [applause]
pence: thank you ladies and gentlemen here in youngstown ohio. it is an honor to be with you today. it seems like a few short weeks ago with my wife karen at my side i had the privilege to accept my party's nomination to run and serve as the next vice president in the united states of america. i am deeply humbled to be with you today. i'm grateful for that gracious introduction by mayor giuliani, someone that i deeply deeply admire, a man who demonstrated his courage on a dark day in america and has been a clear and voice for the interest of the united states of america and our security ever since. today here in youngstown it is my privilege to introduce to you
a man i've come to know personally over just the last several months, i've come to know his family, i've come to see him with the lights are often the cameras are off and i can tell you with conviction he is a man whose strength and leadership and vision will make america great again. today will be one more example as he articulates an extraordinary vision about national security. while many in the national media continue in the major and the minors, focusing on semantics over substance, today you will hear once again a man who will remain focused on the solutions to the real challenges facing the people of the united states
of america. last week donald trump outlined his plan to restart our nation's economy, to make america work again. today he will speak with a clear and present danger that radical islamic terrorism poses to our nation. he will address how we can make america safe again. in my years of public service, i have have seen the handiwork of our enemies firsthand. i was in washington d.c. on capitol hill on september 11, 2001. i walked along with mayor giuliani in the ashes and rubble of ground zero about a week later in new york city. with my family on my side, i have stood in a quiet field near shanksville pennsylvania where the heroes and the victims of flight 93 met their fate. since since then i have seen the sacrifices of the american soldier in the global war on terror. then i watched over the last seven and a half years has the hard fought gains that they won
were squandered by the failed foreign policy of barack obama and hillary clinton. history teaches that weakness arouses evil and the weak leadership of president obama and his secretary of state hillary clinton, leading from behind and moving redlines, making so's so-called deals and ransom payments to the radical in iran, the reign of isis are a testament to this truth of history. donald trump knows that america needs to be strong for the american people in the -- and in the world to be safe. today you will hear the latest installment for a new vision for a new time. in place of the aimless
foreign-policy of the recent form past, you will hear a broad shouldered vision to confront our energy, restore our security and once again have america command the respect of the world. ladies and gentlemen, it is time for new american leadership, for a safer america at home, for a stronger america on the world stage, it is my high honor and distinct privilege to give you a man of courage, a leader who will name our enemy and marshal the resources and the national will to make america safe again. i give you the next president of the united states of america, donald trump.
[applause] trump. [applause] >> thank you everybody thank you very much. it's great to be with you this afternoon. today we began a conversation about how to make america safe again. in the 20th century, the united states has defeated fascism, nausea's him and communism. now a different threat challenges our world. radical islamic terrorism. this summer there has been an isis attack launched outside the war zones of the middle east every 84 hours. here in america we have seen one brutal attack after another.
thirteen were murdered and 38 wounded in the assaults on fort hood. the boston marathon bombing wounded and maimed 264 people and ultimately left the worst on the lgbt q. community. and i'll tell you what, we can never ever allow this to happen again. [applause] thank you. in europe we have seen the same
12 were killed, including two police officers, and 11 were wounded. two days later, four were murdered in a jewish delicatessen. in november of 2015, terris went to the shooting rampage in paris that slaughtered 130 people, and wounded another 368 people, some in very, very, very bad shape today. france is suffering greatly, and the tourism industry is being massively affected in the most negative way. in march of this year, terrorists detonated a bomb in brussels airport, killing 32 and injuring 340 people. this july in the south of france, an islamic terrorist turned his truck into an instrument of mass murder,
trained attack. only days ago and isis kill innovative a christian church in normandy, france, forced an 85 year old priest to his knees, a priest who was beloved, who was beloved, before cutting his throat and just unthinkable other things. overseas, isis has carried out an absolute atrocity, one after another. children slaughtered, girls sold into slavery, men and women burned alive. crucifixions, beheadings and drownings, ethnic minorities targeted for mass execution, holy sites desecrated. christians driven from their homes, and hunted for extermination. ices rounding out what it calls mission of the cross, nation of the cross. in a campaign of absolute and total genocide. we cannot let this people continue. [applause]
-- evil. >> thank you. thank you. nor can we let the hateful ideology of radical islam, its oppression of women, gays, children and nonbelievers be allowed to reside or spread within our own countries. [applause] we will defeat radical islamic terrorism, just as we defeated every threat we faced at every page and before. but we will not, we will not, remember this, defeat it with closed eyes or silence voices. we have a president that doesn't want to say the words. anyone who cannot name our enemy is not fit to lead our country. [applause] anyone who cannot condemn the hatred, oppression and violence of radical islam lacks the moral
clarity to serve as our president. [applause] the rise of isis is the direct result of policy decisions made by president obama and secretary of state clinton. let's look back at the middle east at the very beginning of 2009, before the obama-clinton administration took over. libya was stable. syria was under control. egypt was ruled by a secular president and an ally of the united states.
iraq was experiencing a reduction in violence. the group that would become what we now call isis was close to being extinguished. iran was being choked off by economic sanctions. fast forward to today. what we have, and think of this, and the decisions made by the obama-clinton group have been absolutely disastrous. libya is in ruins. or ambassador and three other really great americans are dead, and isis has gained a new base of operations. series of is in the midst -- syria is in the midst of a disaster for. isis controls large origins of territory. a refugee crisis now threatens europe and the united states. egypt, terrorists have gained a foothold in the sinai desert near the suez canal, one of the most essential waterways of the world. iraq is in chaos, and isis is on
the loose. isis has spread across the middle east and into the west. in 2014, isis was operating in seven nations. they were in seven patients. terrible but that's what it was. today they are fully operational in 18 countries with aspiring branches in six more for a total of 20 more, and many believe that number is actually 28-30 countries. they don't even know. a situation is likely worse than the public has any idea. a new congressional report reveals that the administration has downplayed the growth of isis with 40% of analysts saying that experienced efforts to manipulate their findings. they are trying to make it look much better than india's. it's a bad. at the same time, isis is trying to infiltrate refugee flows into
