Key Capitol Hill Hearings CSPAN October 20, 2016 5:00pm-5:34pm EDT
mr. trump: in 19 days, we are going to win the state of ohio and we are going to win the white house. and i worked in ohio and i love ohio, i can tell you. early voting is underway. so make sure you mail in your ballot. and you have to do it quickly and in person. but on november 8, get there. we are going to do something that has never been done before in this country. believe me. ladies and gentlemen, i want to make a major announcement today. i would like to promise and pledge to all of my voters and supporters and to all of the people of the united states that i will totally accept the results of this great and
historic presidential election if i win. all right. seriously, the debate last night was amazing and everybody said i won, a including every single online poll and some had it at 90% and close to 90%. so that's pretty close. the question of voter fraud came up during the debate. we want fairness in the
election. this is having nothing to do with me. but having to do with the future of our country. we have to have fairness. john podesta, hillary clinton's campaign chairman, was quoted in wikileaks as saying illegal immigrants could vote as long as they have their driver's license. what i'm saying is don't be naive, folks. don't be naive. one of the big issues that came up last night was the fact that the clinton campaign has paid people to disrupt violently our rallies and to incite absolute, total bedlam. >> lock her up! >> lock her up!
>> lock her up! lock her up! lock her up! lock her up! mr. trump: it's so bad. so bad. i've had occasions where we had rallies and it was so incredibly violent. i said, what's going on over here? these were paid people by the clinton campaign, and it just came out, and i give a lot of credit to the people who brought this out, believe me. this is criminal behavior that violates centuries of tradition of peaceful, democratic elections. a campaign like clinton's that will incite violence is truly a campaign that will do anything to win. and a candidate like crooked hillary clinton, who will lie to congress, lie to the fbi, destroy 33,000 e-mails, put her office up for sale, and put our
confidential information in the reach of our enemies is a candidate who is truly capable of anything, including voter fraud. in addition, it was just learned in that hillary clinton was given the exact question to a previous debate, word for word, by donna brazile. who is now under tremendous pressure to resign from the dnc, as she should be. she should resign. how can a woman do that? that is cheating at the highest level. but i ask you, why shouldn't hillary clinton resign from the race? she was given -- think of it -- she was given these questions.
she used these questions, studied the questions, got the perfect answer for the questions. and never said that she did something that was totally wrong and inappropriate. hence, the name, crooked hillary. years ago, there was a show called "the $64,000 question." a contestant got the questions in advance, and his life was ruined. they've found out about it. remember? anybody remember his name? come on. van dorn. very good. you look younger than that. charles van doren. charles van doren was his name.
life was ruined. he got the questions. forget donna brazile. she should resign. she looked like a fool last night trying to say, well, she did not know what was going on. she had no idea. she said, get me out of here. she got the questions. she got the questions. she gave them to hillary clinton. hillary clinton didn't say that i would like to announce a mistake was made and i can't take these -- i mean, look, how many questions are there, right? can you imagine if i got the questions? they would call for the reestablishment of the electric chair. do you agree with that? right? she got the questions and she didn't report it. she went out there knowing the questions. she didn't report it. that is very dishonest. she is a very dishonest person.
this is even bigger because we are going for the presidency of the united states. so this is very important. hillary clinton is the most corrupt and dishonest person ever to seek the office of the presidency. so it is in that context that i was asked the question whether i would agree in advance to concede the results on election night, if for some reason we should lose -- which we are not going to lose. and that was sort of an unprecedented question. if al gore or george bush had agreed three weeks before the election to concede the results and waive their right to a legal challenge or a recount, then there would be no supreme court
case and no gore vs. bush or bush vs. gore. and there have been numerous other cases. in effect, i am being asked to waive centuries of legal precedent designed to protect the voters. but listen to this. according to pew, highly respected, there are 24 million voter registrations in the united states that are either invalid or significantly inaccurate. ok. i think the people in this room understand it more than our leaders -- although maybe our leaders understand more than we think they understand. listen to this. 1.8 million people are dead. but they are registered to vote, some of whom vote even though
the are dead, which is really a hard thing to do. but it's easy if fraud is involved, right? you have 1.8 million people who are dead who are registered to vote. and some of them vote. one was a republican, and after death became a democrat. it's true. 2.8 million people are registered in more than one state. they got 2.8 million people that can vote in ohio and someplace else. and 14% of noncitizens are registered to vote. and then i hear we have such a beautiful -- everything so wonderful -- you understand where i'm coming from, i think, right? now, i am not a politician, so i can say it like it is.
but those are terrible -- those are terrible and frightening statistics. america is a constitutional republic with a system of laws. these laws are triggered in the case of fraud or in the event of a recount where it is needed. of course, i would accept a clear election result, but i would also reserve my right to contest or file a legal challenge in the case of a questionable result, right? and always, i will follow and abide by all of the rules and traditions of all of the many candidates who have come before me -- always. it me -- always. bottom line, we are going to win. we are going to win. in we are going to big so big. we are going to win so big. november 8, we are going to win.
together, we are going to deliver real change that puts, again, america first. it's going to be america first. >> usa! usa! usa! usa! mr. trump: thank you. boy, you people have spirit. beautiful. it's a beautiful thing to see. all over the country, it's a beautiful thing. it's a spirit. it's a movement like they've never seen. the dishonest media, they've never seen anything like it. they've never seen anything like it. we are going to renegotiate our horrible trade deals, end illegal immigration, stop the massive inflow of refugees,
reduce surging crime, cut taxes and regulation, unleash job-producing energy, american energy. rebuild our military and take care of our vets. now, our vets -- our great veterans have not been taken care of the way they've should be taken care of. that i can tell you. our vets are treated oftentimes not as well as illegal immigrants, and we are going to change that very fast. our vets are going to be treated properly and with great respect. that is not happening now. and we are going to repeal and replace obamacare. just in case you haven't noticed, rates are going up 60%, 70%, 80%.
next year's going to be worse. it's a catastrophe. and it's dying anyway. but we are going to repeal it, replace it. you are going to have great health care at a fraction of the cost. your jobs will come back under a trump administration. your jobs are failing. your incomes will go up under a trump administration. your taxes will go way down under a trump administration. and hillary clinton is going to raise your taxes. she is going to raise your taxes. your companies won't be leaving ohio under a trump administration. right now our economy isn't growing practically at all. last quarter, it was only around 1% gdp. people have hardly ever heard of numbers like that. if in china it goes to 7% or 8%, it is considered a national catastrophe. here, it is 1%. isn't everything wonderful?
everything is a wonderful. and if it was wonderful, we wouldn't have packed auditoriums everywhere we go. believe me. i'm going to get us to 4% growth and maybe more and create 25 million jobs for our country over the next 10 years. many workers are earning less today than they were 18 years ago. they are working harder. they are working longer. they are taking home less money. they are getting older and working harder. believe me. and so analyzed. i am working harder.
believe me. i'm working harder. companies like carrier are firing their workers and moving to mexico. ford is moving all of their small car production to mexico. when i'm president, if a company
wants to fire their workers and leave for mexico or other countries, then we will charge them a 35% tax when they want to ship their products back
into the united states. and they won't leave. believe me. those companies will not leave. if we do that, they will not leave. and you know what? if they do that, we will make a lot of money. but they've will not leave. our politicians should have told you this years ago, you would have stopped this horrible onslaught of companies leaving. but two things. either they are not very smart war they are controlled by their donors and special interests. hillary clinton has raised millions of dollars from big donors who want to ship our companies. use all of that last night. it turned out she wanted open
borders. boy, that wikileaks has done a job on her, hasn't it? and you take a look. she really has a hatred almost for catholics. she's got a hatred for evangelicals. i mean, what they said about catholics and evangelicals and some of the things, so many other things. the one i liked was john podesta say hillary clinton has bad instincts. she has bad instincts. i don't want summit with bad instinct as our president. i'll tell you. if i were hillary, i would fire the guide. he said so many bad things. well, bill said about obamacare, he said this is the craziest thing i've ever seen. he was right. he suffered that evening, right? he suffered.
but this is why i am proposing a package of ethic reforms to make our government honest once again. it's time to drain the swamp of corruption in washington, d.c. and we're going to do it. those reforms include the following -- a five-year ban on executive branch and congressional officials lobbying the government after they lave the goverment for government service. why they make all these sweetheart deals. a ban on for lobbyists raising money for american elections. i don't want that. you don't want that. nobody wants that. and then you wonder why we make all these dumb deals and these horrible deals. friends of mine come up, how could there make such a stupid deal?
i said they the a are actually smart. but this is the way the system works. additionally, i am going to push for a constitutional amendment to propose term limits on all members of congress. it's about time. not only will we end government corruption, but we will end economic stagnation. my plan for the economy can be summed up in three beautiful words -- jobs, jobs, jobs. at the center of what will be a historic jobs plan, we will be fixing our terrible trade deals. and they are terrible. 47 million americans are in poverty, and 45 million americans are right now on food stamps. we have nearly $800 billion annual trade deficit in goods with the world, and the worst so-called recovery since the great depression. you know, we hear about a recovery. it's the worst since the great depression. hard to believe.
ohio has lost one in four manufacturing jobs since nafta, and china's entrance into the world trade organization, two deals done by bill and backed strongly by crooked hillary. america has lost -- listen to this -- 70,000 factories since china joined the wto. and by the way, try doing business over in china. not easy, folks, not easy. we are living through the greatest jobs theft in the history of the world. they are stealing our jobs, our companies, taking her money. -- our money. we have drugs. we have debt. we have empty factories. that's going to end. so easy. a trump administration is going to renegotiate nafta, the worst
ever signed -- probably the worst trade you ever signed in history -- stand up to foreign in cheating and currency manipulation and stop the jobs from leaving our country. we are going to stop them. it won't be hard. it won't be hard. in order to bring our jobs back to ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, north carolina, all across this great nation, i'm going to undertake a major reorganization of our bureaucracy, which we have to do. have to do. american trade policy is currently mismanaged by dozens of competing bureaucracies, spread across the departments of agriculture, commerce, labor, state, treasury -- all of these departments, so many departments. get that mosquito out of here. get a little nervous with mosquitoes nowadays, folks.
that up here, you have been hit -- yet. right? that's what we need, a nice mosquito bite. >> thank you. mr. trump: thank you. i love you, too. mosquito bite right smack in the middle of the nose. no, we don't want it. in my administration, all trade policy making will be consolidated into one very important office. we are going to call it the american desk. and it will be located inside the department of commerce. and i will be checking with those people because we are not going to lose our companies anymore. it's so complicated. so many different departments have to get involved. and by the time the get involved, they are gone. they have signed with all of these other countries. the mission of the american desk will be to protect the economic
interest of the american worker and the national interest of the united states. they are hurting our national interest. we owe $20 trillion right now, doubled under obama, and we haven't done anything. our roads are bad, schools are bad, everything is bad. they are falling down. we have all this debt and we haven't started yet. we have to fix the infrastructure of our country. it's going to be america first, believe me. as part of our plan to bring back our jobs, we are going to lower our business tax from 35% to 15%. we are also going to rebuild our inner cities. african-americans and hispanics living in the inner cities are suffering. the violence is unbearable and unbelievable. you walk to the store with your child and you get shot. there's no education. there are no jobs. and there's practically no safety.
nearly 3500 people have been shot in chicago since the beginning of the year, since january 1. 3500 people. that's worse than what you are reading about over in the middle east in many cases. homicides are up nearly 50% washington, d.c., and more than 60% in baltimore. and it's getting worse. to the african-american and hispanic communities who are suffering, i say, what do you have to lose? vote for donald trump. i'm going to fix the inner cities. i'm going to fix the inner cities. what do you have to lose? seriously. i mean it. the inner cities are so bad. they've been run so badly by the democrats for decades and decades and decades. sometimes more than a hundred
years unbroken, and they get the votes and the go on their way and the don't do a thing. i hope the americans, -- i hope the african-americans, hope the hispanics will vote for me. we will be a rich nation once again. bigly. we will be a rich nation once again. but to be a rich country, we must also be a safe country. and national security national security begins at the border. speaking in secret to a foreign bank, hillary clinton said her dream is for totally open trade and open borders. you saw that last night when she tried to lie about it. right? she tried to lie about it and she came up with something, she was talking about energy. just like she lied about other things, she tried to lie -- she said tpp, which is a disaster. it will be a disaster for ohio.
they have no guards, no safeguards, they don't talk about currency manipulation in the agreement. it's thousands of pages long, it's a disaster for ohio and pennsylvania and any place that makes anything, it is bad. hillary's plan includes an open border with the middle east, meaning generations of radicalism spreading and growing within our open shores. a refugee pled guilty to joining isis -- there are many of them. so let me state this as clearly as i can -- if i'm elected president of the united states, i'm going to keep radical islamic terrorists the hell out of our country.
we've got enough problems, don't you think? don't you think we have enough? that will end up being the great trojan horse they will read about like you read about trojan horse current, in 200 years. we don't want to be a part of that history. we will also stop the crisis of illegal immigration. a trump administration will secure and defend our borders. and, yes, we will build the wall. and mexico will pay for the wall. we have the first ever endorsement from our ice and border patrol officers, first time they have endorsed someone for president. every year, countless american lives are lost to sanctuary cities. my opponent strongly supports
sanctuary cities. i do not think she knows why, like the one that got kate killed by a five-time deported criminal illegal immigrant. if i am elected president i will , cut off federal funding to sanctuary cities. and quickly. and we are going to make sure that our immigration authorities do the job they're supposed to be doing, and these in many cases are great people that are not allowed to do the job. in the case of board of control and ice agents, these are great american people. by thanking me they will be working much harder, they don't have to stand back. people just walk into our country. we will save american lives. either we win this election or we are going to lose this country.
here are some of the amazing things we are going to be doing for our country starting in 2017. we are going to have the biggest tax cuts since ronald reagan. we will eliminate every unnecessary job-killing regulation which affects the many of you. we will defend our religious liberty. we will provide school choice to every low-income child in america. and we are going to end common core. education will be brought local. we will totally support the men and women of law enforcement. we talked about this last night at the debate -- we will save
the second amendment which right now is under siege. we talked about this last night and i will appoint justices to the united states supreme court who will uphold and defend the constitution of the united states. you have 19 days to make every dream you ever dreamed for your children and your family and your country come true. thank you. god bless you. thank you. thank you. our campaign is powered by our love for this country and our love for our fellow citizens, and is there any better place to be than a trump rally? it's about rejecting the cynicism of our failed political establishment, which is doing great harm to everybody. to us.
i am going to fight for every citizen of every background from every stretch of this nation. i'm going to fight for every child living in poverty. i'm going to fight for every mom who lost her child to illegal immigration and drugs and gang violence. i am going to fight for every community whose jobs and factories have been ripped out of our states, like ohio and pennsylvania and florida and so many others. you take a look at new england, you take a look at what's happened, you take a look at new york state, upstate new york, and you see what's going on. we will never, ever let that happen again. we are going to bring them back. i'm going to fight for every person in this country who believes government should serve the people, not the donors and
the special interests. and i'm going to fight to bring us all together as americans. imagine what our country could accomplish if we started working together as one people, under one god, saluting one american flag. in 10 years, in 20 years, in 30 years, you will look back at this rally for the rest of your life. but important things are happening. you will remember this day. this is a movement like nobody has seen in this country before. you are going to look back at this election and say this is the most important vote i've ever cast for anyone at any time.
you are going to be so proud of your country again, and hopefully you will be very, very proud of your president because he will do a great job. and when we win, we will make america wealthy again. we will make america strong again. we will make america safe again. and we will make america great again. thank you, everybody. thank you, ohio. god bless you. god bless you. thank you.
