tv Key Capitol Hill Hearings CSPAN September 2, 2016 2:00am-2:31am EDT
unlike his opponent, ted did not think the auto rescue was a bad deal. when i was here the first time you are laying off 700,000 people are and they were threatening to move everything to mexico. that was the deal. today you have 4500 folks punching a card and building one of the hottest selling cars. and you allow your families to have a basic, decent living. it is still a struggle. the thing i criticize my party, while we are worrying about getting everyone off of their knees, others are making -- it is hard. hillary gets this. that is where she has been fighting her whole life, for families. from car check to making sure -- everybody says supreme court --
we're only talking about issues that relate to choice and the rest. guess what happened? there is a case in the supreme court and only because there is a 4-4 tie to take away the collective right to bargain. did you ever think we would get to the court where with one more vote change, your right to collect to bargaining is fundamentally changed. her dad was born in my hometown of scranton and her grandfather were that scranton lace. that was hard work. essentially a central loom. this is a guy who busted his rear end. hillary understands the struggle and she understands that middle class is not a number.
it is about being able to send your kids to a park and know they will come home safe. it is about sending your kid to a high score they can do well and be able to go to college if they want to. it is about being able to home -- own your home. being able to take one of your geriatric parents after one dies and hope your kids never have to take care of you. that is middle-class. she understands. that is what these guys do not get. i am going to stop. this is what these guys do not get. i mean this sincerely now. he look at these beautiful and handsome young kids and you see all the talent. so we say, if the parent cannot figure out how to get to the college, it is a loss for the kids. it is. you know what is more profound they do not get? the most devastating thing that happened to a parent. what is the one thing that is
the most devastating for a parent? to look at their kid who is in trouble are in need and has an opportunity and there is not a damn thing you can do to help. i can remember, i was a pretty good athlete in high school. i remember after my senior year of my senior prom having to -- having a dad in automobile business was great. it means i got a new car after prom and i remember driving my 1951 candy apple red plymouth convertible with towels for seat covers after a baseball game from claymont, delaware, the old steel town i went to school in down to york, delaware where he managed the dealership. i had a routine, i would pull my car into one spot. i had my uniform on and i ran into the showroom and i saw mary, i said, where is dad?
she said he is in the repair shop. my dad was a gentleman, extremely well-dressed and he was pacing back and for then he looked at me and said joey, i am so sorry. i thought, god almighty this is before cell phones. i thought something had happened to my mother or my brother or my sister. he said joey, i went to the bank today. the bank had financed the loans for this dealership. i went to see charlie dolch are and joey, they will not lend me the money to send you to college. i am so ashamed. i am so ashamed. first thing i did when i got to the united states senate was increase college loan access.
[applause] i am going to end here. that is the deal folks. that is who we are. this is about more than just whether a kid gets an education. this is about more than whether you can afford to bring mom home. it is about more. it is about who we are as a people. it is about the stuff we are made of. it is about our values. and for all the criticism fo hillary, she gets it in her gut. she gets it. and folks, that made us the most unique country in the world. that sense. that sense. that is more than just about that one person and it is all
about that one person. i am not going to take my time -- your time because you have been standing too long. i just got back, i am supposedly an expert on foreign policy if you read the national press. where i come from experts are headed out of town with a briefcase. do you know what i had to do? i had to change my schedule to get in the plane to fly to latvia, estonia, lithuania. do you know why? to meet with the presidents. i met at a conference with their presidents to reassure them that donald trump did not represent america. do you know what donald trump said? donald trump said he is not sure he would honor our nato commitment. to protect them if russia invaded them. they are scared to death with
good reason that russia will cross the border and annex them like they did crimea. and what does donald trump say? these are members of nato. he says we are to check whether they paid all their dues. he is causing, for the first time, bush or clinton or obama, for the first time he is causing nations to wonder whether or not we will keep our word. the idea that i ever thought i would get on a plane in my career to basically make an emergency flight to hold the hand of three presidents and say he does not represent republicans or democrats on this. do not worry. this is a guy who admires putin.
this is a guy who does not know that russian troops have already come across the border and annexed crimea. this is a guy who guarantees that putin is not going to invade a country he has already invaded i guess because his campaign manager is being paid millions of dollars by the dictator who ran the place beforehand. [applause] i do not believe the guy is a bad guy, i just believe he is thoroughly, totally, completely uninformed. he has no idea what the hell he is talking about and guess what? that is ok sometimes. that is ok sometimes. but i have a military aimed at me carrying a briefcase. that briefcase has the nuclear codes in it and got for bid if something happened to the president and a decision had to be made, i open up and the nuclear codes are there, just
imagine giving this guy access. i really mean it. imagine giving this guy access to the nuclear codes. a guy who says how he would consider using nuclear weapons. a guy who talks about how maybe other countries should become nuclear -- my god. it is one thing not to know what the hell car check is. and i am sure he has no idea what it is. it is another thing to wonder whether or not this guy thinks that, when asked by stephanopoulos, would you be prepared to make a deal with putin? i am paraphrasing -- about him having part of ukraine? "i would consider that." oh, good.
maybe the pact between the germans and stalin could be reinstated here, let us divide up. you guys, the trump world is already making us less safe. my son, who was a wonderful guy and he volunteered as a prosecutor to go into the middle -- he spent a year in iraq as a major united states army and came back highly decorated with three decorations including the bronze star. let me tell you what is going on in iraq right now. the shia and the -- in tehran
are trying to influence what is happening in iraq. and there is urban legend saying that the united states supports isis. supports isis. when he stands up there and says, irresponsibly, that everybody here knows is ridiculous, that barack obama invented isis. do you know what happened the next day? the guy who runs a terrorist organization put out on all of their networks that the nominee of one of the two largest parties in america may very well be president soon has admitted that we started isis and that he has proof of this.
do you know what that means? we are trying now to make sure that these, what they call the shia pmf do not attack american forces or the american embassy in iraq. if people believe we are supporting isis, what do you think happens to our kids in these countries? the man is totally irresponsible. but folks, i could have just said my name is joe biden and i am for hillary clinton and ted strickland and donald trump is dangerous and that probably would have sufficed. thank you very much.

[cheers] the men and women of the
american legion represent the best, absolute best of america. strength, courage, selfless devotion. your organization and its members have done so much to defend our country, our flag, and to advance the cause of americanism, not globalism. remember, american first. [applause] you are one group i don't need to tell you to remember. you know it. we are in your debt. i will never let you down. [cheers] together we are going to work on so many shared goals. i want to begin by discussing one goal that i know some parts
into you: promoting american pride and patriotism in american schools. [applause] in a trump administration, i plan to work directly with the american legion to uphold our common values and to help ensure they are taught to america's children. [applause] we want our kids to learn incredible achievements of america's history, its institutions, and its heroes, many of whom are with us today. including, by the way, to special people, mayor rudolph giuliani and senator jeff sessions. [applause]
we will stop apologizing for america and we will start celebrating america. [applause] we will be united by our common culture, values, and principles becoming one american nation. one country under one constitution saluting one american flag. [applause] the flag all of you helped to protect and preserve. that flag deserves respect. i will work with the american legion to help to strengthen respect for our flag. it is very sad, you see what is happening. [applause] by the way, we want young
americans to recite the pledge of allegiance. [applause] in addition to teaching respect for the flag, we also have to make sure we give our military the tools they need to defend that flag and to deter violence and aggression from our foreign adversaries of which there are many. [applause] we will rebuild our depleted military. and pursue a state-of-the-art missile defense. [applause] we will do it based on those three very famous words, peace through strength. [applause]
we will make sure our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines have the best equipment, training, tools anywhere in the world. nobody will be able to compete with us. we will ensure that they have the best medical care in the world, both in service and when they return home as civilians. [applause] that will require a total reform of the veterans administration. it is in very sad shape. i deal with veterans all the time.
we have tremendous veteran support. the stories i hear are so sad. we are not going to have that anymore. [applause] i have laid out a 10 step be a reform plan -- veterans affair reform plan you can review on the website. i will a point as secretary of veterans affairs his personal mission will be to clean up the v.a.. the secretary's sole mandate will be to serve our veterans, not bureaucrats, not politicians, our great veterans. [applause] i'm going to use every lawful authority to remove and discipline anyone who fails our veterans or preaches -- breaches the public trust. i will appoint a commission to investigate all of the wrongdoing at the v.a.. then i will present the findings
to congress as the basis for reforming the entire system. we are going to get you fantastic service. believe me. [applause] we will ensure every veteran in america gets timely access to top quality care, including the best care in the world for our female veterans. [applause] the veterans health system will remain a public system because it is a public trust. never again will be allowed any veteran to suffer or die waiting for care. that means veterans will have the right to go to a da's assembly -- bas and what he -- the a -- v.a. facility. people are not going to die waiting in line to see a doctor. it is not going to time.
-- happen. [applause] the veteran will be in total control. should i have the honor of serving as president, you're also going to start facing the world with confidence again. we're going to uphold the laws of the nation and defend our sovereignty and security and we're going to defend our border. [applause] i just came back from a wonderful meeting with the president of mexico were express my deep respect for the people of his country and for the tremendous contributions of mexican-americans in our country. they have made tremendous contributions. many are in our armed services.
you know how good they are. i want to thank him for his gracious hospitality and expressed my belief that we can work together to accomplish great things for both countries, that is mexico and the united states. [applause] we agree in the meeting on the need to stop illegal flow of guns, drugs, cash and people across the border and to take out the cartels. we have to do it quickly. our country is being poisoned. [applause] we are also talking about and talked about the importance of working to keep jobs and wealth in our hemisphere. a more prosperous mexico means
fewer illegal order crossers and a better market for products made in the united states. when i'm president, i'm going to look at every trade do we have across the world and see what steps must be taken to protect american jobs and create new opportunities for the american worker. the american worker has been forgotten. we are not going to let that happen. [applause] we will fight for every last american job. we will have friendships with other countries but they will not take advantage of us any longer. that i can tell you. [applause] we are going to show ourselves, and the world again, what a strong and growing american economy to look like. we are going to give major tax relief to every worker and small business in this country and bring thousands of new companies and millions of new jobs and
unleash an american energy revolution which we have to do. we will also be appointing justices of the united states supreme court be will be proud. you will be extremely proud when we name the. you are eating some of the people and the kind of people we want. justice scalia passed away recently and served as an absolute perfect focal point. he is the kind of person we want on the united states supreme court. [applause] i will nominate men and women to the court to meet the high standards of justice scalia and judges who have the wisdom and
integrity to follow the law and not make it up anyway they want to make it up. [applause] above all, these next four years i will be uncompromising and offense of the united states and our friends and good allies. we are going to end the era of nationbuilding and creating new foreign policy joined by our partners in the united -- middle east that is focused on destroying isis and radical islamic terrorism. [applause] we will extend a hand of friendship to any nation that will work with us in good faith on this vital mission. we want this mission to be accomplished quickly. at the same time, we will change our immigration screening
procedures to help keep terrorists and extremists out of our country. [applause] we have enough problems. our country has enough problems. we don't need that one. that includes stopping the influx of syrian refugees. [applause] incredibly, my opponent wants a 550% increase in refugees from that region. hard to believe. i want to build a saison overseas and use the money -- safe zone overseas and use the money to invest in america. we do not want to let anyone in
our country who does not support our values and who is not capable of loving our people. [applause] it is time to create a new american future for you, your children and all american children yet to come. in this future, we will have an honest government that includes an honest state department, not pay for play. she probably did not mention that to you yesterday. [laughter] government access and favors will no longer be for sale and import an e-mail records will no longer be deleted and digitally altered which is something that just found out two days ago. bleached. expensive process.
