the other night, in the commander-in-chief forum, did anybody see that? how did i do? [applause] donald trump: good. we have a big debate coming up, who knows what's going to happen there but i will say every poll will has me winning big league the commander-in-chief. the polls came out after that event and we won big league. now we have a debate coming up. i don't imagine any of you are going to be watching the debate. i won't, i promise. hillary clinton answered questions on her emails horribly. she lost, that's why she did so poorly, she was terrible. she was honestly, i shouldn't be saying this. she was terrible. [laughter] donald trump: she keeps talking about the emails every time she talks about them, she talks about them differently.
it seems each week, she has a different answer. but there can be no answer when she deletes 33,000 emails, bleaches them so they can never be recovered, and unheard of practice. hammer them into total silence. you know what had happened. i always say getting away with that will be the single greatest accomplishment of her career. it's true. [applause] donald trump: so her answers were bad. they were bad. and a lot of people said it was so totally dishonest. you know, she was blaming matt lauer. i thought matt lauer did a very good job. his questions to me were very tough. but the gentleman who stood up and said honestly, she should be in prison for what you did.
to me, that was the top one. -- tough one. that was the tough that was a one. tough question. sort of a question in the form of a statement, right? [laughter] donald trump: hillary clinton is unfit to be our president for many reasons. applause]d donald trump: true. >> [crowd chanting] lock her up. donald trump: she's unfit for many reasons the first of which, her judgment is so bad. it's time to restore honesty and
integrity to our government, we -- have to do it. and one more issue, and a final issue i wanted to discuss today is the economy and helping those in need. there is no more important group in our country than christians . [applause] donald trump: and all of us here today are determined to lift suffering americans out of poverty. we can do it. but a lot of other people are going to help. as your president i will pursue a complete reform for our economy to bring back millions of new jobs into our country. millions of new jobs. [applause] donald trump: we lost our jobs like we are a bunch of babies. they have gone to mexico, gone to many other countries. china is taking massive advantage of us. it's also easy, believe me.
that includes, we will be doing massive tax cuts to working families and businesses. [applause] donald trump: it includes, very importantly, the elimination of all needless, job killing regulations. [applause] donald trump: it includes lifting the restrictions on american energy which is under siege. [applause] donald trump: i will also renegotiate nafta and if they don't want to renegotiate it so it becomes a two-way highway, not just the one way i way out of the united states for our companies and jobs, we will terminate nafta, believe me. we will stand up to china and we're going to fight for every
last job. it's going to be america first and it's going to be the american worker first. [applause] donald trump: crucially, i will also fight for the american family and american family values. the family must be at the center of any anti-poverty agenda , has to be. [applause] donald trump: thank you. our country just lost one of the great champions for the american family. phyllis schlafly, great woman. we sent our thoughts and prayers to her loved ones. i will be going to her funeral tomorrow in st.louis. [applause]
donald trump: phyllis fought very hard to the very end for a free and prosperous america. she understood that to be truly united as a country, we can't simply turn to government or to politicians. the bedrock of our unity is the realization that we are all brothers and sisters created by the same god. phyllis understood that. phyllis understood. by the way, phyllis endorsed me a long time ago when it wasn't necessarily something that was so easy to do. and she was incredible. she was so brave. that was not the thing to do at the time. people said trump, she said he's going to win. he's going to win. they said phyllis, it's not going to be tump. -- trump.
then it went boom, boom but i will tell you, phyllis endorsed me at a time when it wasn't necessarily the thing to do, even the popular thing to do and i will never forget that. she was a great, powerful woman with a tremendous heart. and i look forward to being with her family tomorrow because that's a celebration, she was 93 -- 92 years old. [applause] we are all equal and we all come from the same creator. and we remember the fact that our future is truly limitless. there is nothing we as americans can't do. there's a biblical verse that i have often read. i want to repeat it again because i think it is so important to what we are trying to achieve right now for our country. it's from first john chapter 4.
no one has ever seen god. if we love one another, god lives in us and love is made complete in us. it's so true. [applause] donald trump: so true. imagine what our country could accomplish if we started working together as one people under one god, saluting one flag. [cheers and applause] donald trump: it is time to stop quibbling over the smallest words and time to start dreaming about the great adventures that lie ahead for our country. this is my promise to all of you.
starting in 2017 , we will be one american nation. it's time to break our ties with the bitter failures of the past and to embrace a new american future. together, we will make america believe again. we will make america united again. and we will make america great again. thank you very much and god bless you, thank you.

>> c-span's washington journal is live every day with news and policy issues that impact you. coming up this morning, and theon examiner associated or for the nation will join us to talk about the latest campaign 2016 developments. center for strategic international studies talks about the had estate recent $1.3 iran toin payments to settle in arms deal. be sure to watch c-span beginning at 7:00 eastern this morning. during the discussion. >> on the campaign trail yesterday hillary clinton spoke to reporters after meeting with
national security experts. let's watch. mrs. clinton: good afternoon. i just finished meeting with a distinguished group of national security experts. some served under a republican president, some under democrat, some under both. some in uniform. they don't agree on everything, that they represent a great deal of expertise, experiences, and lessons learned. i asked them to join me for a candid conversation about some of the most challenging issues facing our country because i believe that america national security must be the top priority for our next president. to do that job, you need to constantly seek new information and new perspective, test your assumptions, ask and answer hard questions. that is what today was about. i am grateful to these men and
women for sharing their insight with me. i hope and intend that our conversations will continue. as i have said, i believe in bipartisan foreign-policy. we will not always see eye to eye. but when it comes to questions of war, peace, and safety of our country, we cannot let party affiliation stand between us. we need to put partisanship aside and work together for the good of all of us. i know we can do it. i have seen it happen under both republican and democratic presidents. so that will be my goal if i am elected this fall. today, our main conversation was isis and other terrorist threat. we discussed how isis is finding ways to convince young men around the world and some young women, including in our own country, to get assault weapons or strap on bombs and kill large
numbers of people. we talked specifically about a strategy to protect us from that threat here at home. we went into detail on what it will take to help us protect -- detect and prevent attacks. we also discussed methods to stop online recruitment, so they stop radicalizing young people on the internet. one of the points emphasized, which deserves a higher priority in counterterrorism strategy. is the role of local governments and community leaders here at home. who truly do act as our first line of defense. while we protect the homeland, we need to take the fight to isis. that means smashing their strongholds, denying them safe havens, dismantling the global network of fighters financing
and arms that supply these terrorists, which requires working closely with our allies. it does not mean sending contingents of american combat troops to take and hold territory. that is neither wise or in the interest of the united states. it is what isis wants. instead, we have to hit them from the air and intensify support for local arab and kurdish partners on the ground. i support deploying more special forces and trainers as needed. increased intelligence gathering and reconnaissance. i also believe it should be a top priority to take the leader of isis off the battlefield, just like we did with osama bin laden. that will help us focus our efforts and make it very clear that no one attacked the united states or inspires attacks without being brought to
justice. today, we talked about what we need to do. i would stand up a mission team to bring focus and priority to the sector. we will promote intelligence necessary, combined with the capabilities of our allies on the ground and precise application of military force. we know how to do this, we have models to draw from, it will be a paramount priority for me as president and it will send exactly the right message. history tells us we need an approach that is comprehensive and deals with multiple overlapping conflicts in the region, and along the entire arc of instability, from north africa and the middle east, asia as we have been reminded in the last 24 hours with reports of another nuclear test in north korea, we face threats from many parts of the world.
isis and north korea's quest for a nuclear weapon are not entirely unconnected. because the greatest threat of all would-be terrorists getting their hands on nuclear material. it is vital we bring the world together to stop north korea dangerous game. in discussions of national security, it can be easy to get mired in the tactics and focused on the threats. let's not lose sight of what this larger project of american leadership is all about. it is about creating more peace in our world, more prosperity, more human dignity. and that is what we also have to be focused on every day. there were a number of very excellent suggestions about what we can and should be doing here at home. two
