mr. kaine: wow. are we going to climb that mountain and make history? absolutely. cleveland does rock. it is so good to be here, especially on labor day when we acknowledge all the hard work and all the history that has been made by unions, labor, and working people in this country. give it up for unions, give it up for labor. i want to do a few thank yous. give it up for unions, give it
up for labor. it takes a lot of great people to get this together. give it up for marcia. isn't she the best? she did such a good job, so great to have her here. when we were doing thank you's us who theyshe gave were in 7.5 seconds. i have never seen a presentation so fast. great democrat, ted strickland. my friend ted, we were governors together, and spent a lot of time together and it is great to be here with you. congresswoman beatty, give it
up. thank you for being here. mayor so good to be with , you. thank you. give him a round of applause. what a treat to be standing here on stage with great labor leaders. afl-cio. what a great friend. rich i got to know him, we got a what a treat to be standing hern virginia. he always had my back and i cannot tell you how much i appreciate your leadership. thank you. randi weingarten give a round of , applause. raise your hand if you are an educator so we can give you all a round of applause. to are educators. then, your hometown guy, give it up for lee. i know there are others. think tim ryan might be here. virginia.
give tim ryan around of applause. i think he was here earlier. this is a big day. i think you know labor day starts the home stretch of the campaign. do we feel battle tested and ready for the home stretch so we can make history and elect hillary clinton on the eighth of november? ohio is going to be there, right? you guys have a habit of being there because you know how to do it. you know how to make the grassroots work so we have progress moving forward and that is what we will do on november 8 with hillary. i'm going to talk for a few minutes and then i will bring her out. i know we are really here for her but i want to tell you how proud i am to be on the ticket. i want to tell you something about hillary. when she called to ask if i would be on the ticket, she said something important that tells
you the way she thinks about the job she will have to do. i started to say yes and she said no, be quiet, i have not told you why yet. she said look. the test of a clinton administration will not be a bill signing, or the margin by which something passes in the house or the senate. the test will be, do we do something that makes a classroom better for a teacher who wants to teach and a child who wants to learn? that will be the test. can we do something that will make it safer in a neighborhood, or easier for parents around the table as they talk about college for their kids. can we do something that will make a workplace safer, or of business more easier to hire people.
the test will be, can we make a tangible and significant difference in the lives of everyday americans? that tells you something about who hillary clinton is. she is focused upon every day folks. she is running against a guy who has been sitting up on the penthouse, and does not understand the lives of everyday folks and he is not focused on make the lives of everyday folks any better. she said you have been a mayor and a governor and a senator, i think you can help me figure out how to make sure that what we do impact people in their daily lives. needless to say, i am proud to be on the ticket with a woman who is the most qualified to be president that either party been nominated for a long time and probably ever. can i tell you something that made me mad today? donald trump put out a tweet
about our nominee for president which essentially said, she does not look presidential, does she? listen to that again. she does not look presidential, does she, fellas? does she, fellas? donald trump will still be saying that very same thing hawking bottled water somewhere and we have forgotten he'd ever run for president of the united states. [applause] mr. kaine: it is important that we are here on labor day. a quick story. an iron shop in
missouri. some of you have heard me tell this story. employees in a plus my brother and800 my mom. my dad taught me that business judgment would put his workers tears will but he always taught my brothers and me in the art industry, will put you boys through school. it is about teamwork and working together and shared prosperity. that is what the country is built on and that is what the party stands for. shared prosperity, the value of hard work, and the fact that we can do more and we are stronger together. since the convention when i got added to the ticket, the first thing we did was go right out on a bus tour through pennsylvania and ohio, talking about an -- building an economy for everybody. that will be the number one test of the clinton administration.
work together. can we not put it in a brochure or put it in an advertisement, but can we implement it and do it so people all over the country see that they have a ladder to climb? that they have a ladder to climb to prosperity. ank goodness president obama has brought about the worst recession since the 1930's. thank goodness for him. you all know he had to do that without one party in congress lifting one finger to help him. it was very difficult to create 15 million new jobs, to cut the unemployment rate in half, make pensions and retirement accounts again. we go into thank him for what he has done. however, we also know in ohio and virginia and everywhere, there is more to do. there are too many people, might
be in inner-city or rural america, they might be in indian country, too many people do not look out and see they have a ladder they could climb to success. what we will do is work together with congress to try to put new policies in place so people see the ladder and we told you what works for all. that is why we have going around the country since the convention talking about what we will do. we will invest in manufacturing and infrastructure and labor will be key to making those investments, hiring people, making it work. we will invest in education and skills from early childhood education, giving our teachers the tools and flexibility they need to succeed in the classroom without a lot of top-down in washington. we will make college affordable, debt-free for americans and free
community college for people who cannot afford it. and, we will reinvigorate because you do not just need a college degree to succeed. union apprenticeship programs, technical education are a path to success in the 21st century and we will focus on that. we will focus on equity. raising the minimum wage so you do not work full-time in this country to be below the poverty level. equal pay for women. what a novel concept that would be. child care tax credits for working parents to have a good job without spending too much of their money on high-quality child care. we will do that. it is about investment in education and equity and knowing that small businesses are the backbone of our economy. two thirds of jobs in this country created by small businesses. hillary knows that from her family background and i do, too. that is what we will do. hillary clinton will be a "you are hired" president.
who wants that? [applause] mr. kaine: obviously. you know what kind of president donald trump will be. a you're fired president. there is poetic justice to the fact that when we think about donald trump before he ran for president, we knew him as a guy known for the two words, you are fired. when they tell you they are, pay attention. that is who he is, that is the kind of president he will be. you see it with everything he has done building casinos and . when he was golf course headquarters and small businesses like my dads would get the contract to do the work and they would do the work and pay employees and pay material costs and they would say i am done, what do you think, and they would be told, yes, the work -- the work is great, and then they would stiff them. hundreds of his misses, he would not pay. trump had to go into bankruptcy
because he knew he was a big guy, and he thought he could just push aside the little guys. they got hurt because they trusted donald trump. the students who gave him thousands of dollars to go hit -- go to his bogus university got hurt. forrees who gave money condos in florida, but they never got the condos because they trusted donald trump and now donald trump wants us to trust him? are you kidding me? are you kidding me? he is doing a job interview, that is what this is. out doing a job interview, you are interviewing us. he is coming out and says i want this job. you say, let's see, every president since nixon has produced their tax returns. he will not. how about giving information about your health, medical records, no, i'm not going to do it. how about information about whether you own money, no, i money, to wall street,
the bank of china no, i will not , do it. if someone came and wanted a summer job and ask questions that were important and they did not answer, would you give them the job? >> no! : you cannot do it. he must think we are gullible. he must think we are chumps. we are not. that is why we are not going to support donald trump. you aresupport the hired president hillary clinton. , this is important to me. i made my career before i got into politics. i was doing housing litigation all over virginia and other states in the south. when someone was turned away from housing because of race or
disability, i would take the case and represent them in court. they often could not find anybody else to represent them. i did it because housing was so important and everyone is entitled to be treated fairly regardless of the color of their skin. hillary clinton got out of law school, and she could have gone to wall street, that she went to work with the children's defense fund. the juvenile justice system in south carolina, education system in alabama. this is what i did early and what hillary did early. let me tell you about trump us -- trump's early career. he came into a family business and shortly after he got deeply involved, he got sued by the justice department for discriminating against people based on the color of their skin. a massive fair housing lawsuit brought by the justice department and the evidence was when applications would come in, and somebody had dark skin,
latino or african-american they , would put a c on an application which would be the signal for that person to get second-class treatment. we do second-class treatment. we are all equal and deserve first-class treatment. we have got to have a president who understands that. hillary,ore introduce i just want to say this. this is the home stretch. a number of us have done multiple labor day events already. labor day is the start of the home stretch campaign. between labor day and election day, that is when the focus is on and the spotlight is the greatest, and that is when we have to do our best work. you said thanks for coming to ohio, no, i am thanking you for coming out when we come to ohio. we have to come to ohio. you all know this. you are used to this. you are used to the fact that you are one of the two or three
or most important states of any presidential election, going back since there were presidential elections. that is why we are here with you. what we know about the next nine weeks, you are going to see a lot of negative ads on tv. you know the deal. a group can form and get money from millionaires or billionaires and call themselves citizens for apple pie, they do not tell you who they are, they put out negative advertisements and say things that are largely false and they will not tell you who they are. sadly that is what campaigning , has come to these days. but we democrats know how to do this because we learned how to do it from labor. we can beat all the negative advertisements, consultants, and we can beat them by doing person-to-person. isn't that what ohio knows how to do? that is how we win.
even in a nation of 330 million people. i think people tune out the negative advertisements. a ton of that money in 2012 just like i did, people kind of tune it out. i do not know. they are not sure they can believe it. but what they do believe, what people believe deeply, they believe in the word from somebody they care about and trust -- a neighbor, someone in their church, someone they go to school with or work with. if you reach out and talk to them, you can persuade someone who is undecided or persuade someone who is decided, but may not vote that this is a very , important election for the future of the country. are you willing to do that, make that person to person effort? i will tell you something else. they do not even have to know you. they really don't even have to know you. if you knocked on their door and
say i'm a volunteer for hillary clinton, they will hear volunteer. they did not have to do this. they do it because they are passionate about it. our citizens will decide they want it weren't for someone who can answer a question, you have the ability to make a difference and get people to take it seriously and see the consequences and you know how to do it because i bet ohio always figures out how to do it. between now and november 8, we are asking, raise your hand if you are already volunteering or the campaign. give them around of applause. that is great. for anyone not yet volunteering, you can do it. text "together" to 47246. that's all you have to do and you will be brought into the campaign and we will work hard to make history november 8. the real work starts making history every day after november
8 with president hillary clinton. i've had the wonderful honor to be on the ticket for hillary. we did an interview and somebody asked, what have you learned about her and i said, i will tell you something i suspected about her, that i have now learned. this is a lady who never back down. this is one lady who never backs down. from the time she was a teenager in a methodist youth group, she has been focused on the success of families and kids. whether in office or out, whether she is winning or losing, whether she is getting something fast or having the other side knock it back, she does not forget where she came from or what motivates her. that is why i am so proud to say i'm with hillary, we are with hillary and we will make history
with hillary. please welcome hillary clinton, the next president of the united states. ♪ >> ♪ listen, baby ain't no mountain high ain't no mountain low ain't no river wide enough, baby ♪ if you need me, call me no matter where you are, no matter how far ♪ don't worry baby ♪ just call my name i'll be there in a hurry ♪ 'cause baby, there ain't no mountain high enough ain't no valley low enough ain't no river wide enough to keep me from getting to you, baby ♪ remember the day, i set you free i told you you could always count on me, darling from that day on, i made a vow i will be there when you want me, someway, somehow ♪ ain't no mountain high enough ain't no valley low enough
will send ted strickland to the senate. now behind me, are some of great labor leaders of our country, saunders,garten, lee rich trumka. i'm proud to be on the same stage with them. they are always fighting for working families. once i get over my allergic reaction, let me say we are here in part because we know how important this election is to ohio.
it is not just, as tim said, that ohio is one of those battleground states you hear about every four years, it is that ohio represents everything that is great again -- about america and all the challenges and opportunities that we face. that is why this election is critical to every person in this state. what i want to emphasize is i know we can't face our problems alone. we have to work together. we believe we are stronger together. that is in stark contrast to donald trump. remember what he said at his convention. he said i alone can fix it.
think about what that leaves out, my friends. that leaves out all of our troops on the front line, police officers and firefighters. doctors and nurses who care for us. it leaves out teachers and educators who care for the most important people in our lives, our children. it leaves out everybody except him. when he says i alone can fix it, that clearly demonstrates he does not understand how america works. how we got great and why we are great today. and what we need to do together to face the future. our campaign is about, we will fix it together, we will work together, we will bring our country together.
what better example of that than our labor unions? they are built on the principle of solidarity. they look out for each other, they fight for fair wages and collective bargaining for safe working conditions. just last week, we learned once again, because another study came out that confirms what we already knew. when more workers are in union, wages are higher. not just for union members, but for all workers. that is why, if tim and i are elected we will say no to , attacks on unions, note to rolling back collective bargaining, no to unfair trade deals like ttp, no to pension cuts that deny a secure retirement that you have earned.
no to right to work because right to work is wrong for workers and wrong for america. but we are not just about saying no. we are saying yes to standing up for workers rights, yes to good jobs and benefits, yes to the american dream. it is big enough for everyone to share the promise. so that is why during the campaign, i have been running a campaign based on issues, not insults. i believe anyone who asks for your vote should tell you what they are going to do. starting tomorrow, you can read about the plan tim and i have. does someone have a copy of that book? we are putting out a book called "stronger together."
it is more than a slogan for the campaign. that is a guiding principle for the future we want to build and it is exactly what we want to do. some people say wait a minute. plans.e got so many you are right, i do have plans. i want you to know what i want to do to help you and what kinds of results we will work to achieve. i have an old-fashioned idea that if you are asking somebody to vote for you, they ought to tell you what you want to do and hold you accountable when you get elected. i will tell you what, our plans start with a very simple idea -- that we will get the economy to work for everyone. not just those at top.
we will do it with the biggest investment in new jobs that we have had since world war ii. more infrastructure jobs, advanced manufacturing jobs, clean renewable energy jobs, anyone willing to work hard should have a job that can support them and their families. a job with dignity, with only a future to be proud of, not to worry about. we will offer new solutions for families. families are different today than they were in the 1950's for heaven's sake. we need to make sure we help support families the way they are today, not back then. helping people support and balance family and work with paid family leave, earned sick days, affordable childcare. and finally, guaranteeing equal pay for women's work.
here is our book. it is called, "strong together" for a reason. you can read about will want to do on the economy and everything else. it will be available starting tomorrow. the choice for families has never been clearer. just look at donald trump's track record when it comes to hard men and women. -- hard-working men and women. i know i'm allergic to it too. ,you have to look at his record. there may be people you know who are thinking about voting for him. you know friends don't let , friends vote for trump. here's what you can tell them, among many things he hired a unionbusting firm to break up and organizing campaign at his hotel in las vegas. he built his career on refusing to pay workers, plumbers, painters, glass installers, people who did work for him.
my dad is tim's dad. they had really small businesses. it gave us a good middle-class life. i'm so grateful my father got a -- never got a contract from donald trump. my dad worked hard, he printed drapery fabric. i would go help them sometimes. there would be a long table. and the fabric would be rolled out and the silkscreen would be laid down, and then you pour the paint on, then you spread across. you lifted it up and go all the way down. then you go to the second table, all the way back. load drapery fabrics in the that car. i don't know what would have happened to my family if he had done a big job thing it's a good deal, and then he gets there and
trumpont people -- the people say we are not going to pay you, and then after harassing, may be they say ok we will pay you $.30 on the dollar. he has driven hard-working people into bankruptcy. he has taken bankruptcies himself. here in ohio, you know that a president makes decisions that affects people's lives and livelihoods. when millions of jobs were on the line in the auto industry, president obama made the right decision to save the auto industry. i know we have some uaw members here. i was proud to support him then and even prouder now that the auto industry had its best year ever. think how differently things could have turned out. i know this is hard to imagine, if it had been donald trump in
the oval office. last year, he said it didn't matter whether or not we save the auto industry. either way would have been acceptable. he said we could have just just let it go, never mind the 850,000 people in ohio and millions more across the country, whose jobs and paychecks were tied to the auto industry. what else could we expect from someone who's most famous words are, "you're fired." this is the difference this election really poses. people like tim and me, who want to create good jobs with rising wages and benefits for anyone willing to work hard, that is the basic bargain of america. and somebody who stiffed people
to bankruptcy and laid off people. one of his bankruptcies put 1000 people out of work. every time you hear him talk about how he knows how to create jobs, just look at the facts. educate yourself and your friends and your colleagues. the kind of wild claims he makes about everybody and everything, don't stand up to any scrutiny. the same is true in whether or not we keep our country safe. stronger together means working with our allies and partners. right? we are not just electing a president, we are electing a commander in chief. when donald says, and i quote, " i know more about isis than the generals do."
when he claims that our armed forces are a disaster or he insults a gold star family, that is not just wrong and offensive, that is dangerous. our military is a national treasure. and a president must respect the men and women who risk their lives and wear the uniform of our country. some of you know tim kaine's son is deployed right now. tim and i will not only respect our men and women in uniform, we will protect them and we will ensure that they are given the resources that they need to do the dangerous missions we ask them to do on our behalf. last week we saw even more evidence that trump is temperamentally unfit and
totally unqualified to be president. in just a few hours he managed to turn his trip to mexico into an embarrassing international incidents. he even got into a twitter war with the president of mexico. and then he delivered his most hate filled, hard-line speech yet. doubling down on his absurd plan to send a deportation force to round up 16 million people. you can't make this stuff up, can you? try to distract with divisive, dangerous rhetoric. you can try to fool voters into thinking some town he is not -- somehow, he is not as harsh and
inhumane as he seems, but it is too late. when you see what he has said and done in this campaign, when you see that he can't even go to a foreign country without getting into a public feud with the president, i think the answer is clear. donald trump does not have the temperament to be our commander in chief. [applause] ms. clinton: imagine him in a real crisis. i have said it before and will say that again, a man who cannot -- a man that can be baited with a tweet cannot be trusted with nuclear weapons. i know that these elections are always tight and hard. i am not taking anyone anywhere for granted. we need your help. we need to make sure we have an
election that validates the kind of positive future that will make life better for the people of ohio. an empty promises and racist tax -- attacks will not do that. it will not get your family a job, it will not keep our troops safe, it will not heal the divide in america. i spent my life fighting for kids and families. some of you remember powerful interests blocked our way, but i didn't give up. i worked with republicans and democrats to help pass the children's health insurance program that covers 8 million kids today. that is how you deliver real results. you can't get discouraged, you can never give up, you can never quit. you have to start with the right values and principles. you have to believe in our country, you have to believe in the american people.
i'm asking for your help in these next two months. i'm asking you to reach out to your friends and neighbors. everybody you can possibly touch. i'm asking you to join this campaign. you can go to hillaryclinton.com. 7246.an text join to 4 because we want to win ohio. we don't want to win it just for the sake of winning it, we want to win it so we can go onto the white house next january and get to work for you. we want to win it so we can take all the plans and ideas that will improve your lives. that will get the economy working for everybody, not just those at the top, which will help make education affordable, so colleges are within reach of everyone, and to help pay back your student debt.
we want to defeat isis, keep our alliances strong, we want to break down the barriers. that is why we are running. we are not running because it is a nice thing to do after you have a reality tv show. we are running because between tim and i, we have a lot of years of public service. we believe in what we can do together. we believe that we can make our country even greater. please, join the campaign. be part of us having an american future that is better than the past, that creates the opportunity for every single man, woman, and child. thank you, and god bless you. ♪ baby, there ain't no
