[♪ "god bless the usa" by lee greenwood ♪] mr. trump: thank you, special place, special people. thank you. [applause] mr. trump: so, we really were not supposed to be here. we were not going to come back to iowa, they said, mr. trump,
9:41 pm
you have such a lead you don't have to. i said, why don't i have to? i want to go to iowa. which is true. i want to go to iowa. [applause] and the incredible leadership that you have in this state, unbelievable. so i want to begin by thanking iowa leaders. lieutenant governor, kim reynolds. where is kim? come on up, kim. a man i've gotten to know over the years, somebody respected outside of iowa like you would not believe, inside of iowa, so much that he is the longest serving governor in the history of the united states, terry branstad. [applause] mr. trump: by the way, terry came to my office and was talking to me about trade. i think there is nobody who knows more about trade than him.
9:42 pm
he is one of the ones where dealing with china, he would be a prime candidate, he has done so well, so well for the people of iowa, nobody does it better. congressman steve king, great guy. [applause] mr. trump: great guy. i even liked him when he was endorsing ted, and i still like him. he came around. it took a little while, but he came around. [applause] mr. trump: and a woman who i got to know, she was on a very short list, and she loves the people of iowa. and she felt she needed -- it wasn't me, it wasn't me, she felt she needed a little more seasoning. and i said, isn't that refreshing when you hear that from somebody?
9:43 pm
and she is now seasoned because there's nobody doing a better job representing the people than joni ernst. and a great person. [applause] [crowd chanting "trump"] mr. trump: thank you, very much, incredible people. whenever they run, you have to keep voting. always vote for them. two years, four years, 20 years, you will never do better than them. in two days, can you believe this, we are going to win the great state of iowa. and we are going to win back the white house. [applause] mr. trump: and i want to thank
9:44 pm
the people of iowa, you opened up your hearts to me, so much, incredible, it has been just incredible, our evening here the other night with fireworks, everything is always beautiful in iowa. real change begins with the immediate repealing and replacing of obamacare. a disaster. [applause] mr. trump: they are all saying, please, it has just been announced, the residents of iowa are going to have a massive, double-digit premium hike. i know the number, i will not tell you, i don't say the number, because it is so depressing. right now everyone is happy, we are having a good time, even of the subject matter is difficult. but we will make it great. but i will say this -- obamacare is out of control. in the great state of arizona,
9:45 pm
premiums are going up more than 116%. i just left arizona. there are very unhappy with what is going on. over half of the counties in iowa are losing obamacare insurers next year. it is honestly not going to matter because we will have a -- have it terminated by then. we win, we will have a terminated. we will terminated, it will be gone, it will be just a bad memory. premiums are up, companies leaving, doctors are quitting, and deductibles are going through the roof. your deductibles at $15,000, $16,000. can you believe it? and yet hillary clinton wants to double down on obamacare. make it even more expensive. far more expensive. i am asking for your vote so
9:46 pm
that we can repeal and replace obamacare and save health care for every family in iowa and for every family in our great country. [applause] mr. trump: so important. remember, obamacare, got to get rid of it. we need to restore honesty to our government. there is little doubt that fbi director comey and a great special agents within the fbi will collect more than enough evidence to garner indictments against hillary clinton and her inner circle. despite her effort to disparage and discredit the fbi. [applause] "trump"]anting mr. trump: if she were to win, it would create an unprecedented
9:47 pm
constitutional crisis. in net situation, we could very well have a sitting president under felony indictment and ultimately a criminal trial. just today we learned hillary clinton was sending highly classified information through her maid. did you see, just came out a little while ago. who therefore had total access to this information, completely jeopardizing the national security of the united states. this just came out -- wikileaks. we need a government that can go to work on day one for the american people. that will be impossible with hillary clinton, the prime suspect in a far-reaching criminal investigation. her current scandals and
9:48 pm
controversies will continue throughout her presidency and will make it virtually impossible for her to govern. let's hope we do not have to think about it. if she ever got into the oval office, hillary and her special interests would rob our country blind. that is what she has been doing. at the heart of our collection is a simple question. will our country be governed by the people are will be governed by the corrupt political class? we will find a very soon. if we win, the corrupt politicians and their special interests lose. if we win, the american people, and you understand that, we win. what is going to happen to the american people? if we win, you will be so happy. because if we win, our country is going to start winning again. we don't win anymore. our country is going to start winning again. [applause] mr. trump: it is just that
9:49 pm
simple. speaking at a secret wall street meeting, hillary clinton admitted that she wants to cut medicare and social security. hillary clinton is going to destroy your social security and medicare. she even wants to give your benefits to illegal immigrants, and you have seen that all over. savegoing to protect and your social security and medicare, you made a deal a long time ago. a long time ago. and i will protect american workers. the political media elite have no idea what it is like to be living on a paycheck to paycheck basis. not knowing whether or not the owners and leaders of their company are negotiating to move their plant and factory to mexico or some other country and
9:50 pm
fire them. sometimes with virtually no notice, happening all over the country. not going to happen with us, folks. not going to happen with us. politicians do not understand what that is like. the media and the political elite do not know the pain and the suffering these people are living under. but i figured it out a long time ago. that is why i am here, i am with you, rather than where i was. i was on the other side. i was on the other side, i understand it well. i understand the other side well. i was enjoying my life for many years on the other side. but i also love our country and i will tell you, our country was going bad. our country was not only going in the wrong direction, our country was going bad. and on june 16 of last year, i went from being a true insider to perhaps the ultimate outsider ever.
9:51 pm
[applause] mr. trump: ever. i don't know. i think so, right? what do you think? i think so. these people i have known all my life are saying, donald, what happened? we are going to make america great again, that's what happened. you are the people who built our country and we are going to give you the respect that you deserve. hillary is an insider fighting only for herself and her special interests. fighting forder you. i'm not a politician. you, the american people, are my only special interest. that's what i'm doing it for. that's what i'm doing it for. [applause] and it is a lot of work, folks, i will tell you. it's a lot more work than i ever thought. but it is a movement in this
9:52 pm
country, the likes of which our country has never seen. even the extremely dishonest media back there, they will say boos] mr. trump: there has never been anything like this. this is far bigger than bernie sanders. by the way, may of his people believe it or not are coming to our side because they agree with me on trade. they realize how we are being ripped apart on trade. and he should have never made a deal. he sold his soul to the devil when he made that deal. he ruined his legacy. but many of the bernie people are coming over to us because of trade. and our stance on trade is tougher and smarter and better than his. but they understand that and they are coming over. the media and the politicians are trying to stop us because they know we will fix the rigged system that has enriched them for so many years, but very much at your expense.
9:53 pm
very, very much. i've spent a life in business creating tens of thousands of jobs. i built a great, great company. but i have spent a whole life -- i've employed tens of thousands of americans. but when i saw what was happening to our country, i just felt i had to act. i had to act. and i acted. i acted. so that is when i made my move. that's where we made our move. thank you, very much. june 16, famous day, right? do you remember coming down the escalators? oh, boy. but i don't mind being an outsider. i don't mind. this is our last chance, folks. i think the governor would agree with me so much. we have one chance. it's our last chance. it's on tuesday. it's the eighth.
9:54 pm
it's our last chance. now, some of you have voted -- how many of you have voted? [applause] mr. trump: not so -- actually, i like it because our numbers are looking very good. but i know we still need a lot more people. tuesday is going to be a very good day. but this is our last chance because -- and i'm talking as a country because it's never going to happen again. never going to happen again. and i was saying it last time, but this time i say it -- we have so many things to do and we can do them, some of them easily. some of it is common sense. there's no common sense. the iran deal, $150 billion going back to iran. and then we are going to give them $400 million in cash, right? but the $400 million turned out
9:55 pm
to be $1.7 billion. terry is looking at me saying that is not possible. $1.7 billion? $1.7 billion, we could do that -- we could use that in iowa. we could do -- we can do a hell of a job in iowa. that's gren, in cash. that would go up to the ceiling. $1.7 billion in cash. and obama lied and said it theyt for hostages, but wouldn't let the hostages go until the money came in. so many lies. lied on obamacare. you can have your doctor. you can have your plan. 28 different types. you can have your doctor. you can have your plan. many democrats who didn't want to approve it approved at based on that lie because it just made it, unfortunately. it just made it. but going out and voting, it is your last chance. it is your last chance to make a country truly, truly great again. we have such potential.
9:56 pm
my contract with the american voter begins with a plan to end government corruption and to take back our country from the special interest. [applause] mr. trump: i want the entire corrupt washington establishment -- other than our great congressman over here -- i'm not talking about you, congressman. and i not talking about am everybody, but, boy, there are a lot of them. to hear the words we are all about to say -- when we win on november 8, we are going to drain the swamp. that was an expression -- i tell people i thought that was so hokey. i thought that was so hokey. i said no way i am ever saying that. and then i went before a big group like this and -- by the way, this room is packed and there are thousands of people outside that can't get in, which is amazing.
9:57 pm
but i gave that expression at a speech and i go like, very timidly -- drain the swamp. but they liked it. then i said it with more energy the next time. and they really liked it. and then a third time, they really, really -- and now people are going crazy, they are screaming at me when i'm talking -- drain the swamp. between that and build the wall, these are two expressions, huh? and we will build a wall. so you never know about things, right? i tell the story of frank sinatra. frank sinatra did not like "my way," great song. he did not like it. then he sang it, the audience loved it, sang it again, the audience really loved it. then it went out and became the number one song. all of a sudden, he loved it. he loved it. it became his favorite songs, just about. at the core of my contract is my plan to bring jobs back to our country and to iowa.
9:58 pm
we are going to bring our jobs back. our economy's growth is anemic, the worst since the great depression. you don't hear about that. my jobs plan begins with a proposal to lower taxes on american business from 35% to 15%. and that's a massive tax cut for the family farm. and the folks in iowa that work so hard and and up with very little left ask her -- after taxes. we are going to further protect her family farmers. we are going to protect them, like they have never been protected before. i mean, honestly, or i would kerry,e big enemy in -- in terry, that i can tell
9:59 pm
you. and we are going to detect corn-based ethanol. hillary clinton's plan which shut down family farms all over the nation. let me tell you, the miners are going back to work and the steelworkers are going back to work. will have clean coal. at the miners are going back to work. she will do this by epa regulation and by raising taxes, two rates as high as almost -- to rates as high as almost 50%. hillary also wants to substantially increase the death tax on family farms. you have a farm, it would be nice to leave it to your children. we're going to get rid of that. on top of that, her anti-energy agenda will radically drive up the cost of energy. another attack on agriculture, a big, big attack on agriculture. we will reverse the obama epa inclusion and the job killing regulations that hurt the people
10:00 pm
of iowa and really hurt the farms. you know, the one thing -- and i we telling the governor -- are the highest taxed nation in the world and we are giving massive tax cuts very substantially the regulations. we want clear air -- we want clean air. we want clean water. we want safety. the beyond that, you look at all the different things, the people most want cutting regulations. more than the massive tax cuts is the cuts and regulations. because they have killed our businesses. they're killing of businesses, especially our small businesses. i should not have been surprised. more important than the tax cuts is exactly that. we will also rebuild our inner cities. very unfair what's happening to our african-american communities. very unfair what is
10:01 pm
happening to our latino communities. we will become a rich nation once again. but to be a rich nation we must also be a safe nation. hillary clinton wants and 550% increase in syrian refugees pouring into our country. [crowd boos] mr. trump: and that's over the thousands and thousands that obama has allowed and is allowing to get in. by the way, he is always campaigning. he is always campaigning. you know, he should go to the oval office and he should work on jobs. he should work on knocking the hell out of isis and not giving them a four-month notice we are coming into mosul. we are attacking in four months
10:02 pm
because we want to get the leaders. after the announcements come in about two seconds they are gone. we have people that are very sad. her plan would import generations of terrorism, extremism and radicalism into your schools and throughout your communities. when i am elected president we will suspend the syrian refugee program. radical islamic terrorists the hell out of our country. we have no choice. we have enough problems. [applause] and we will build safe zones in syria and we will have the gulf states. we owe $20 trillion. we've got lots of problems. but we will have the gulf states, who have tremendous money, they have not been carrying their weight. we are going to have -- they will be happy to do it -- we
10:03 pm
will have safe zones. but we cannot have them coming into our country. too much uncertainty. we have enough problems. wouldn't you say we have enough problems? a trump administration will secure and defend the borders of the united states. and yes, we will build a great wall. [applause] mr. trump: we are going to keep the drugs out. we are going to keep the poison out of our country that is destroying our youth and plenty of other people. as secretary of state, hillary clinton allowed thousands and thousands of the most dangerous and violent criminal aliens to go free because their home countries would not under any circumstances take them back. can you imagine that? they catch murderers, drug dealers, the worst people, the worst people. they bring them back and their
10:04 pm
country says they are not taking them. she said bring them back. the crime committed by these people is unbelievable. i promise you this -- there will be one instance, not one, where we bring somebody back to their country where they belong, where that plane comes back with that person sitting on that plane. there will not be one instance. there will not be one instance. it will never happen. it's truly called a lack of respect for our country. hillary supports totally open borders. there goes your country. and strongly supports sanctuary cities like san francisco, where kate was murdered by an illegal immigrant who was deported at least five times. thousands of americans would be alive today if not for the open border policies of obama and clinton. this includes incredible americans like 21-year-old sarah
10:05 pm
root, who you know about in everett about. from iowa right here. i've spent time with her incredible family. beautiful family. devastated. the illegal alien who killed sarah arrived at the border, entered federal custody, and then was released into the community despite pleas from people not to do this. please do not do this. right under the policies of the white house. he was released again and again. but then he killed sarah in a savage, savage way. sarah graduated from college with a 4.0 grade index, number one in her class. the day before she was killed. there are so many instances like this. so many instances like this. and people knew trouble. but the administration said we we don't get involved.
10:06 pm
a trump administration will end this nightmare of violence that is going on all over a our country. we will stop illegal immigration, deport all criminal aliens and dismantle every criminal cartel threatening our citizens. and we are going to build that wall and it will be a great wall. and let me tell you, mexico is going to pay for the wall. they don't know it yet. they don't know it yet. they are starting to get an idea but that's ok. mexico, they are great. i met with the president of mexico three months ago. great. it's got to be a two-lane highway. we lose so much. we lose our plants. we lose our jobs. we lose our wealth. and we get drugs and unemployment. it's got a be two-way. and it will be. because the trade deficit with china and so many of these countries -- but the trade
10:07 pm
deficit with mexico is massive, far greater than what we are talking about for the wall. so a lot of politicians say you can't get mexico to pay for the wall. i said it is going to be so easy. but here's what you have to understand. were going to have big, beautiful doors in that wall. people are going to come into our country and they are going to come into our country -- people, lots of people are going to come into our country. but they are coming into our country legally. they come in legally. [applause] "build thating wall"] thank you very much, everybody. we will. we're going to have very strong borders, believe me. very, very strong borders. we will repeal the obama defense sequester and rebuild our badly depleted military.
10:08 pm
badly depleted. i'm honored to have the endorsement of more than 200 top admirals and generals and 22 medal of honor recipients. hillary and our failed establishment have spent $6 trillion on wars in the middle east that we never win. and now it's in worse shape than ever before. the middle east is in far worse shape than it's ever been. even from our standpoint. foreigngged us into wars that have made us less chafe -- safe. they have shipped our wealth to other countries and left our borders wide open at home. we send our troops or foreign countries to defend their borders. but our politicians refuse -- they refuse to defend our borders. it's amazing. we fight to get the money, the blood, the great people, the great people.
10:09 pm
the loss. we fight to defend the border but we do not defend our own borders. that will change on november 8, believe me. [applause] mr. trump: a trump administration will never, ever put the interest of a foreign country before the interests of our country. from now on, it's going to be america first. [applause] mr. trump: to all americans i say this -- it's time for real leadership and it's time for change. we're going to change. hillary clinton is not change. hillary clinton is four more years of obama. which is isis. which is all of these other things. high taxes. just think about what we can accomplish in the first 100 days of a trump administration. we are going to have the biggest tax cuts since ronald reagan and
10:10 pm
hillary is going to raise taxes. we will keep your social security as is without cuts and your medicare. she's going to chop, chop, chop away. she is going to chop it away. we are going to eliminate every unnecessary job-killing regulation, cancel illegal obama executive orders. we will protect religious liberty. [applause] mr. trump: rebuild our military and take care of our great veterans, our greatest people. we are going to finally, once and for all, take care of our veterans. our veterans have
10:11 pm
s is the single greatest political phenomena that he's ever seen. it's huge. -- it's you. i'm the messenger. i'm the messenger. it's you. it really is you. i'm the messenger.
10:12 pm
i'm a pretty good messenger though, you have to say, right? but it is you. where are fighting for every parent who lost their child to drugs and crime and gang violence. we are fighting for every community whose jobs and dreams have been ripped out and shipped to other countries, one of the primary reasons i got involved in this. i couldn't watch it anymore as our companies -- i live in new york. new york state. new york state, what happened to new york state with the jobs going to mexico and other places -- and when hillary clinton was senator, she said she ran on the basis that she would create new jobs. alltel you what -- -- i tell you what -- just another lie. it's worse than ever, ever, ever before. she did nothing. she did nothing. we are fighting for every american who believes government should serve the people, not the donors and not the special interests. i'm asking you to dream big because, with your votes -- can you believe this? -- we are two days away.
10:13 pm
we will get the change you have been waiting for for your entire life. and i hope, i hope that you will consider it the greatest and most important vote that you will ever cast. because we will start winning again. we will win on trade. we will knock the hell out of isis. we will start winning again. together, 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 very much, everybody. god bless you. god bless you. thank you. get out there and vote. thank you. ♪
