12:43 am
sec. clinton: thank you! [crowd chanting "hillary"] sec. clinton: thank you so much. wow. i am so excited to be here. and i want to thank you. [cheers and applause] clinton: i am really -- i want to give a big shout out -- [applause] and i am here with
12:44 am
a lot of great people who are working so hard in this campaign. i want to thank evan, thank you so much, ken. i want to thank three members of congress. congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz. [cheers] clinton: congressman hastings. and your congresswoman, lois frankel. [applause] sec. clinton: i also want to thank sheriff israel for being here. [cheers] sec. clinton: and mayer resnick just gave me a key to the city. [applause] sec. clinton: and i want to thank my longtime friend and such a great leader, chad griffin. human rights campaign president.
12:45 am
i know that chad told me there are a bunch of human rights campaign organizers. [applause] sec. clinton: and you know, as i've said many times, hrc for hrc sounds good to me. [applause] sec. clinton: well, my friends, just nine days left until november 8. nine days that really will determine the outcome of the most important election of our lifetimes. and we cannot take anyone or anything for granted. it is great to be here at the manor complex, a place that means so much to so many. and there have been ups and downs in all that we have gone through over the years. and even in this campaign. but i want you to know i have focused on one thing -- you. your lives, your futures. [applause] sec. clinton: the problems that
12:46 am
keep you up at night, that is what i'm interested in and that's what i am going to be talking about here today and throughout the next nine days. that is really what this election is about. there is a lot of noise and distraction but it really comes down to what kind of future we want and who as our president can help us get there. so, i want you to know -- [applause] [crowd chanting "hillary"] sec. clinton: i just have to say, i know i'm preaching to the choir. [laughter] [applause] sec. clinton: but i also, through you, want to talk to people who are still making up their minds, believe it or not. right? because we have a choice between a president who will bring us together, keep our country safe,
12:47 am
get the economy working for everyone, not just those at the top. or someone who is temperamentally unfit and totally unqualified for the job. [crowd booing] sec. clinton: you know, donald trump is doing his best to confuse, mislead and discourage the american people. i mean, he is such a downer, right? and it is time for him to stop fear mongering, stop distracting from what is really at stake. and frankly, stop disgracing our democracy. we can't let him get away with it. [applause] sec. clinton: but here is the good news. yes, america is great and we can make a greater if we work together and set some goals. but we are seeing americans come together. democrats, republicans, independents to reject donald trump's dark and divisive vision of our country. and it is going to be really important that we make it clear
12:48 am
to everyone in these last nine days what is at stake. because i really believe the vast majority of americans agree with us. we don't want a president who demeans women. we don't want a president who has plans to break up and deport immigrant families. we don't want a president who perpetrated a lie that president obama was not born in america. we don't want a president who would appoint supreme court justices to overturn marriage equality. but i want you to know the energy we are now seeing out in the campaign is not just about what we are against, it is als o about what we are for. we also share a common vision. beyond partisanship and politics, it is a hopeful, inclusive america where everyone counts and everyone has a place, right?
12:49 am
[applause] sec. clinton: and that is exactly what i'm going to be fighting for in these last nine days. we are going to honor people, not insult them. donald trump has insulted more than half of our population. african-americans, latinos, immigrants, muslims, pows, women, and by what he has said, so many others who believe that you have a positive future. i agree with that, you do. and i promise you this, i will keep working every single day for you and for the vision of america that we share. [applause] sec. clinton: now, i will tell you, my mom taught me to never, ever quit. what does that mean? well that means -- you got it. , you got it. [laughter] sec. clinton: it also means when
12:50 am
you are knocked down, what matters is whether you get up again. [applause] sec. clinton: i have been fighting for families and underdogs my entire life. i am not stopping now. we are just getting warmed up. [applause] sec. clinton: and we won't be distracted, no matter what our opponents throw at us. we are not going to be knocked off course. we know how much this election matters and we know how many people are counting on us. so, we are going to take to heart the words of our wonderful first lady, michelle obama. when they go low, we go high. [applause] sec. clinton: we are going to keep our foot on the gas because donald trump's strategy is real simple. they even said it in his campaign. here is his strategy on how to win -- get women to stay home, get young people to stay home, get people of color to stay home, get the lgbt community to stay home.
12:51 am
"no!"]yells, sec. clinton: it is all part of his scorched-earth campaign that goes against everything we stand for. so, do you know how we are going to stop him? by showing up with the biggest turnout in american history. [applause] sec. clinton: we need everybody to turn out and vote. women, young people, people of color, the lgbtq unity, latinos, african-americans, americans from all walks of life. let's break every single record. let's make that the story of this election. [applause] sec. clinton: and, you know, here is some really good news. this is amazing. more than 20 million people have already voted in this election. [applause] sec. clinton: most of those votes in the last few days, three million of those votes from right here in florida.
12:52 am
[applause] sec. clinton: now, you only see numbers like that when people are standing up for what they really believe in. so, if all of you vote, if your friends, your families, your coworkers vote, if everyone you talk to votes, we are going to make some really big history on november 8. [applause] sec. clinton: and i want you not only coming up for me, i want to reelect members of congress and please elect patrick murphy back to the senate. [applause] sec. clinton: and if there are still people that have doubts about the state of the election, listen to this -- we have heard some outrageous things in this campaign. i'm sure we will hear more in the next nine days. but i have to tell you, i was beginning to think that nothing we learned about donald trump could surprise me anymore. but yesterday, "the washington
12:53 am
post" published a report that was truly stunning. it starts with a story of a ribbon-cutting back in 1996 for a nursery school serving children living with hiv and aids in new york. aids in new york. now let me say, this is important in part to remember, this is a story about children with hiv and aids. so there was a big celebration honoring the donors who had supported the nursery school and all the kids and their families for whom this was the most important thing you can imagine. you know, back in the 1990's, some of you remember, right? children were not welcomed in school. and then unannounced and uninvited, guess who barges in? donald trump. he walks right up to the stage, he sat down in the seat that was being saved for a local developer who had made a generous donation. none of the people working for the charity knew why he was
12:54 am
there. he wasn't a donor at all. he had never given a single dollar to help build the school. he just wanted people to think he had. so he sat on the stage through the program, even posed for photographs. and when it was over he got up and walked out, no explanation, no donation. now really, who does that? what kind of person does that? really? i mean, who pretends to help kids with hiv and aids to make themselves look good? i will tell you -- the same kind of person who would pull a bait and switch on a high school chess team. back in 1997, he was principal for a day at a public school. that was a program we used to have in new york. the chess team was holding a bake sale to raise money to travel to a tournament. they were $5000 short. he walked up to them and handed
12:55 am
them a fake $1 million bill. at first, the kids and their parents were excited, and then they were devastated to learn it was a joke. then he gave them $200 and drove away in his limousine. now, this story does have a happy ending. because a woman read the story about donald trump's behavior, called the school and donated the $5000. and the coach remembers this woman saying, i am ashamed to be the same species as this man. [laughter] [applause] sec. clinton: i've got to say -- any of you see the debates? you know, i stood next to donald trump at three debates for four and a half hours, proving conclusively i have the stamina to do this job. [applause]
12:56 am
sec. clinton: a lot of what we heard him say is part of a lifelong pattern. and here is what "the washington post" concludes -- for as long as he has been rich and famous, he has wanted people to believe he is generous. he spent years constructing an image as a philanthropist by appearing at charity events and by making very public, even nationally-televised promises to give his own money away. it was, in large part, a big façade. a month-long investigation by "the washington post" found that trump had sought credit for charity he had not given or claimed other people's giving as his own. now of course, because he has refused to release his tax returns we don't even know if he's ever given anything, but here is what we do know -- with donald, it is always donald
12:57 am
trump first and everyone else last. he abuses his power, he games the system and he does not care who is left who was holding the bag. here's what we do know -- donald trump has a terrible record on lgbt rights. and this election will determine whether we continue to progress we have made or let it be ripped away. we know trump has promised he will appoint justices to overturn marriage equality and he will repeal president obama's executive actions to protect lgbt people from discrimination. and just this week, a new story came out that tells us a lot about how he treats lgbt employees. it is the story of a maintenance worker at one of trump's golf courses. i want you just to think -- this guy works hard, works with his hands. probably there 12 hours a day,
12:58 am
maybe more when it's the summer season. after he told his coworkers he was gay, they started harassing him. they called him names. they even threw rocks and golf balls at him. it got so bad that he ended up in the hospital. now, his supervisor saw all of this and did nothing. so finally, he went to the police for help. he was too scared even to come back to work. and what did the trump golf course do? they fired him. now, this is a heart-wrenching story on a lot of levels. for starters, it is a painful reminder of the harassment, violence and discrimination too many lgbt americans still face every single day. and it is deeply disturbing that instead of stepping in to stop this unacceptable behavior, trump's business punished the victim for coming forward. if that is how donald trump runs his business, what does it say
12:59 am
about how he will run our country? we have made a lot of progress on lgbt rights, but as that story reminds us, we have work ahead, don't we? [applause] sec. clinton: there is still no federal law that stops an employer from refusing to hire someone just because he or she are lgbt. or a landlord for refusing to rent an apartment to a transgender tenant. and of course, there are still states were you can get married on saturday, post your facebook photos on sunday, and get fired on monday just because of who you are or who you love. so, here is what i will do as president -- we will call on the congress to pass the equality act. [applause] [cheers and applause] [crowd chanting "hillary"] [crowd chanting "hillary"]
1:00 am
[crowd chanting "hillary"] sec. clinton: and we will then be able to protect lgbt americans from discrimination in all aspects of our lives. we will work together to achieve we will work together to achieve and it is within our reach. homelessness,n bullying, and violence. it hurts kids and we are going the practice of conversion therapy. lgbt kids don't need to be cured of anything, they just need to be accepted and embraced and respected. [applause] sec. clinton: and yes, we will bring people together to reform our gun laws and keep guns from
