12:00 am
we're supposed to be united so that we can work things out together. it's not about being a republican or a democrat. it's about unity. i do believe that ms. hillary clinton is great for our nation, our country because she has experience. she will have patience to deal with foreign policy. we need someone that will get along with our neighbors. we don't need war. we need peace. we need love. unity. this is all i have to say. host: shirley, thank you for the call. i want to share this tweet years iewer, that 40 ago in grand rapids, michigan, president ford. and this is the photograph a getty imagine that was tweeted
12:01 am
to us. so we thank you for that. we're looking at the scene both in grand rapids and in raleigh. this is where governor mike pence is about to speak. we will listen in. governor mike pence: hello, ichigan! [cheers and applause] i'm mike pence. [cheers and applause] i'm the governor of indiana. and it is one minute after minute. it is november 8th, the day that we make america great again! [cheers and applause] just eport to you, he landed. and he's on his way here. [cheers and applause]
12:02 am
i'll tell you, it's incredibly exciting for me and my family to be with you to have been invited a little more than three months ago to run and serve as the next vice president of the united states of america. [cheers and applause] and i join this campaign in a heart beat because you have nominated a man for president who never quits, who never backs down. he is a fighter. he is a winner and until very recently, it seems that he was fighting all on his own but now this movement is coming together, michigan is coming together! we're going to make donald trump the next president of he united states of america! i really do believe donald trump really imbodies the spirit of america, stopping, freedom-loving, independent,
12:03 am
optimistic, and willing to fight every single day for what he believes in and what .ill make america great again [cheers and applause] you know, it is not like it's exactly been a fair fight out there. you know what i'm talking about? i mean, ever since i join this campaign i get up every morning, i have to turn on to tell vision with a stick. i never know what's going to be on there. it's like the media's out there doing half of hillary's work for her. it's like -- it's like it's two-on-one out there, michigan. but even though she's had all the advantages, donald trump has been winning hearts and minds every day and he's going to win all the way to the white house. [cheers and applause] remember about a week ago what a difference a week makes?
12:04 am
remember how the media was reporting this thing was all be over. hillary clinton was naming cabinet appointments, remember that, she was measuring curtains in the oval office. and then the american people showed up. [cheers and applause] you with me? i don't think michigan was ever fooled. i mean, the truth is we're leading in one national pole after another and it is wheel-to-wheel here in the state of michigan and we're going the make america great again! you know, she may have -- she may have the money, the media and the special interest on her side but we've got something a little more powerful, don't we? we've got a basket of the american people that are saying enough is enough! [cheers and applause] and we're going to make america great again.
12:05 am
you know, the truth is that ground swell of support here in michigan and all across the country is evidence of the fact that more and more americans every day have come to realize this is not so much a choice between two people. it's a choice between two futures. so let me tell you where i stand. i choose a stronger america. i choose a more prosperous america. i choose an america that cherishes and upholds our highest constitutional liberties. so i choose to stand with donald trump and every american who knows we could make america great again! you know, the truth of the matter is, it's -- i think the american people have had enough. you know, i think they've especially had enough of the
12:06 am
fast and loose ethics of hillary and bill clinton. am i right? i mean, you know, it's almost hard to keep up. it's almost hard to keep up with these things, isn't it? let me help you out. while she was secretary of state in charge of all the foreign policy, she had a private foundation that was taking millions of dollars of cribses from foreign governments. and then in between those two things, she had this private server, right, apparently to keep all that stuff from the public domain and when the media found out of the private solder, she used high-technology and hammers to try to get rid of all of it. i mean, -- i mean this summer -- i mean this summer the f.b.i. actually found -- confirmed that she has classified information on that server, right? exposing it potentially to
12:07 am
being hacked by foreign powers compromising our national security but they ended up deciding that in their words extremely careless and they proceeded not to go forward. da or two ago, the f.b.i. " -- decided "to not change their conclusion." there's an old saying that facts are stubborn things. so let me give you a couple of facts. facnumber one, mishandling classified information is a crime. [cheers and applause] all right? and here's what we know. hillary clinton said she never sent or received any classified information. the director of the f.b.i. testified before congress that "there was classified information sent." hillary clinton said that there was nothing marked classified on her e-mail sent
12:08 am
or received. and the director said that's not true. hillary clinton said i did not e-mail any classified information on my e-mail. and the director said there was classified information e-mail. we also found out that the f.b.i. that aides at the state department offered a quid pro quo to change the classified status on that document on that server. and then we found out this weekend that hillary clinton ad her maid printing off sensitive government documents from her e-mail. let me say this, many women of michigan here on this election day, the first hour of that election day, if only for their decades of self-dealing the politics of personal enrichment, paid to play, compromising our national security and outright construction we must decide here and now that hillary
12:09 am
clinton will never be elected president of the united states of america. [cheers and applause] it's reason enough. the american people are sick and tired of pay to play politics and it's exactly the kind of politics that's going to come to a crashing halt when donald trump becomes president of the united states. [cheers and applause] working with a re-elected majorities in the house and the senate donald trump and i are going to pass fundamental ethics reform. we're going to end the involving door between the obbyists and government. in other words, we're going to drain the swamp. [cheers and applause] [crowd chanting "drain the swamp"]
12:10 am
you know, the truth of the matter is, today is a day that the american people can put an end to decades of clinton corruption and close the history books once and for all on the clintons by electing donald trump as president of the united states. but the truth is, this election is even about bigger things than their small ethics and on this election day we do well to reflect on that with our neighbors and friends. i mean, the simple fact is that this election is also about our security. it's about our prosperity, and it's about the supreme court of the united states of america. don't you doubt it for one second. on the security front, despite traveling millions of miles with our secretary of state, the world is more dangerous today than the day that hillary clinton and barack obama took over our foreign policy. our allies are less secure.
12:11 am
our enemies are more embolden. wider areas of the middle east are spinning apart about the weak foreign policy of thised a mintstration. hillary clinton was the architect of leading from behind and moving red lines and faining resets with russia and paying ransom to terrorist sponsoring states. let me make you a promise, when donald trump becomes president of the united states, we won't be paying ransom to terrorist sponsoring states. they'll be paying a price if they threaten or detain an american citizen. we cannot have four more years apologizing to our enemies and abandoning our friends. for the american people to be safe for the world to be safe. america needs to be strong. and donald trump will lead on the world stage with american
12:12 am
strength. we will rebuild our military. we will restore the arsenal or democracy. we will give our soldiers, airmen, marine and coast guard the resources and training they need to accomplish their mission and we will hunt down and destroy isis at its source so it could no longer threaten our people or inspire violence in the homeland. crowd chants "u.s.a."] this election is about our security but it's also about our prosperity. i don't need to tell you here in michigan, this is a very challenging time for families all across the state and all across the country. we're in the weakest economic recovery since the great
12:13 am
depression. one of every 10 american a job. ds are without under hillary clinton, more of the same. more taxes, more regulation more of the kind of bad trade deals that have been shipping jobs overseas and most of all, more obamacare. they tell thus economy is the best that we can do. but i think y'all here in michigan know better. it's not the best we can do. it's just the best they can. do and when donald trump becomes president of the united states, we're going to put common sense american principles into practice and we're going to get this economy working again for every american! we're going to work the newly reelected congress. we're going to cut taxes across the board for working families, small businesses and family farms.
12:14 am
we're going to lower business taxes here in michigan so companies in this state can create jobs here and compete more with companies around the world. [cheers and applause] we're going to repeal everything single obama executive order that's stifling jobs and grolte in this economy. nd when donald trump becomes negotiator-in-chief, the days of seeing american jobs heading south of the border and heading out of town are over. we're going to have trade. trade's going to mean jobs. but it's going to mean trade is going to mean american jobs first once again. we're going to renegotiate nafta. we're going to get out of this trance pacific deal. and we're going to hold our trading partners accountable to the promises they make to the people in the most powerful economy on earth. we're going to have trade that
12:15 am
works for the american worker first. and lastly, when donald trump becomes president of the united states, we're going to repeal obama care lock stock nd barrel. we're going to hold him accountable. if you like your doctor, you can keep him. if you like your health insurance, you can keep it. health insurance will go down. not true. the obama administration announced next year nationwide the average premiums are going to go up 25%. [jeers] and remember, remember that what hill clinton said earlier this year. she said you know, before they called it obamacare they
12:16 am
called it hillary care. hillary clinton actually wants to fix obamacare by importing the worst ideas from canada. she wants to put a single payer government run insurance program right into the heart of this failed policy. [jeers] >> you know my favorite line came from president obama himself. he actually compared obamacare about a week ago in florida to the samsung galaxy 7 phones that spontaneously burst into flames. did you know he did this? he did. here's what the president said if you missed it. he said "when one of these smartphones has a few bugs you don't pull it off the market, you upgrade it or fix it, unless it catches fire, you pull it off the market." well, what a coincidence that's exactly what we're going to with obamacare. we're going to pull it off the
12:17 am
market so it stops burning up our wallets. and donald trump is not just going to repeal obamacare we're going the replace it. we're going to let the american people buy health insurance across state lines the way you buy life insurance, car insurance ms we're going to use the power of the free market in this country to drive down the cost of healthcare that's how you solve problems, the american way! [cheers and applause] so it's about security. it's about prosperity, but it's also about the supreme out of the united states. with the passing of justice scalia, literally the balance of the court is on the ballot. if you cherish the constitution and the god given liberties enshrined there, you better think longed a hard there. like hillary clinton, you better get used unaccountable power to legislate from the
12:18 am
bench, unaccountable power. if you elect do thaled trump president of the united states you're going to have to men and women appointed that will strictly construe the constitution of the united states of america in the tradition of the great and late justice scalia. for the sake of the rule of law, for the sake of limited government, for the sake of the sanctity of life for the sake of our second amendment barehe right to keep and arms, for the sake of all the god-given liberties enshrined in our constitution, we have to decide here and now that the next president to make appointments to the supreme court of the united states will be president donald trump. [cheers and applause]
12:19 am
so on this election day, and how cool is it to see all of you out tonight? it's after midnight. it is november 8th, the day we make america great again. i just would encourage you as hi motorcade heads this way and i'm going to pop back out and introduce the man himself. but i want to encourage you to do three things on this election day. number one, vote. [cheers and applause] bring a friend. friends don't let friends vote alone. go exercise that franchise that has been bought at such a high price and preserved through the generations for you. and vote to bring real change to america by making donald trump the president of the united states. [cheers and applause] and in the time that remains in this election, after you
12:20 am
take care of your own vote, be sure to go tell somebody what this election is about. because i don't really see this election as a choice between republican and democrat or liberal and conservative. i think it's like ronald reagan said, it's a choice between up and down. it's choice between weather going to go downhill to a more hallowed out american military. a america safele by more obamacare or whether we're going to stop here in michigan, plant our feet, turn around and march back up the hill to a stronger america at home and abroad, a more vibrant american economy for this generation and the next and an american grounded in our highest american ideals that's the choice. and lastly as you make plans to vote, you make plans to tell somebody. have faith.
12:21 am
have faith in the people of michigan and the american people to choose right. i mean, i truly do believe as you study the long and storied history of this country that you find that every time the american people have had a clear choice between a future build on our highest ideals and build on american strength, the american people will choose american ideals and american strengths every single time. so have faith in our people. and if you have a mind to exercise that other kind of faith, i encourage you to do that too. if you do like karen and i do, you bow the head and bend the knee, it would be a good time to do it in these challenging times. but let me be clear on this point -- i encourage you do pray. you know, i'm here for the ticket. i'm here for the team. i'm here for the movement. but on this one i think
12:22 am
abraham lincoln had it right. abraham lincoln was asked in his time if he thought god was on his side. and abraham lincoln said, you know, rather concern myself with whether we're on god's side than if god is on our side. so just pray for our country. pray for america. because america matters. it truly does. and as i slide backstage and get ready to welcome my running mate, the next time you'll see me, you'll see him. i'll make you a promise. if on this election day you go do everything that you can do, talk to your friends and neighbors, exercise your franchise, lay out that challenge, i'll make you a promise. that man is ready. [cheers and applause] this team is ready. [cheers and applause] this movement is obviously
12:23 am
ready. [cheers and applause] if you go out and make sure that michigan is ready, we will elect donald trump as the 45th president of the united states of america and we will make america great again! let's go get it done today, michigan! !hank you and god bless you [cheers and applause] sun coming up over new york city school bus driver in a traffic jam taring at the drivers in the rear-view mirror looking at the promise ♪

host: the comments of indiana governor mike pence, donald trump's running mate in grand rapids, michigan, the final event for donald trump and the final event in raleigh, north carolina where lady gaga is performing. due to copy right issues we're not able to show it. but this is what it looks like in raleigh, north carolina. hillary clinton the winner in dixville notch. hillary clinton getting four of them. donald trump two votes. gary johnson one vote and mitt romney, a write-in candidate one voter in dixville notch. voters choose hillary clinton. and early voting in hart's location. i want to hear from jim in new jersey. independent line. good evening. host: hello, i want to thank c-span for once again proving that the education system in our inner cities is deficient.
12:25 am
the number of kalers tonight are woefully ignorant and c-span has brought that to the forefront. you constantly ridicule donald trump bringing up statements he's made but you've never hillary icized clinton on her sexually. bill clinton is slepping with jenna clan. cultural marxism at its best. the 45 goals of communism has almost been completed. you've taken over our medical, our education system, all of our institution, the bureaucrats are corrupt and what we really need is a red hunt resurrection and hopefully ted cruz will follow footstep andhy's hopefully we can purge -- host: do you bring up joe mccarthy? caller: you called trump
12:26 am
supports trump tart scum. host: no, i didn't. caller: i sent it to your only budsman. you called trump supporters trump tart scum. it was really smart to insult us like that. so you know what, steve, i'm going to be pushing congress because they have a deal with c-span to remove you and all of the rest of the beta males. host: well, gym, you cannot be more wrong. i don't know where you're getting your information from, but you could not be more wrong. let's go to rene from syracuse, new york. welcome to the conversation. host: hi, i would like to say i am a republican. i voted for obama twice. i'm calling because i'm in new york. and she was our senator. i have to say that i grew up in new york city. so when donald trump was
12:27 am
starting to build up the city and clean it up and make it a beautiful city that everybody loves to visit, he was one of the people that were actually behind doing that. and i remember as a child that's what he was doing. i didn't watch him on reality tv. i didn't want to vote for him. i had a different person that i would have voted for. i knew i was going to definitely vote against the clintons and the bushes. i feel strongly that what the bushes have done and kasich and all of the other republicans was absolutely wrong. i now live in an inner city and what i want to say is that hillary and nafta and her p. band and her tpp hillary literally stifeens our jobs to india. and i've watched upstate new
12:28 am
york crumble under her reign and although to tell vision and media is explaining how wonderful she is and this she's -- and that she's been there for children and that she's been there for new york, she really hasn't. what she's done is she took everybody in upstate new york and she ruined them. she promised to do to the coal miners and what she's done to children she ran billions of dollars worth of ads saying the few words that donald trump said using his words but 24/7 through every cycle repeating this over and over and saying, oh, look, but if she cared about children, why was she doing the same thing by messaging that to the kids? those kids were siing there watching those ads an those children were learning it from her. and it was her and her team that did that. i just want to say that as a person who had her as our senator and as a person who
12:29 am
knows where the most exclusive area where she does not live next door to a black person and does not lift up black children, i live in inner cities and i know and new york city and i know that the safety of a child walking to school, i don't care what color they are that child needs to live a safe life. host: rene from syracuse, new york. and a look at the portico of the white house. as governor mike pence said, it is tuesday, november 8th about 12:30 east coast time. and jill has this tweet, governor pence makes good sense and he helped donald j. trump make america great again. i believe in both men. we'll go to the democrat's line. good morning to you. caller: yes. well, i jups wanted to briefly comment on what the previous
12:30 am
caller talked about. my children are covered under the medicaid extension. you know the other lady said that she did not help children. and also she's going to talk about the donald trump record with people of color. i could go on. that is not what i wanted to talk about. host: governor mike pence is back on the stage which means donald trump is nearby. we will go to ever comes to the podium first. it looks like donald be their first with these dueling rallies live from grand rapids, michigan.

12:36 am
the reason i am here is that i thought new hampshire was going to be my last and i heard that crooked hillary clinton was coming to michigan, i said, let's follow it up. let's follow it up. [cheers and applause] and i said, there is no place i would rather be for my last rally, right here, in michigan, late at night and full of energy and life, boy, do we have energy and life. wow. although this is our last rally of this campaign, it is a most hard to believe. we started a year and a half ago. we started with 17 very talented people, governors, senators, dr. ben carson, great guy, lovely, talented people. and one by one by one, and most
12:37 am
of them have been terrific and give us great support, ben carson is one of them, as you know. thought andd have d candidate one flawe left to beat. one flawed candidate. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: it is going to be the very beginning of a new adventure, because the new weenture we have to win, have to go out and vote, but the new adventure is making america great again. we are going to do it. [cheers and applause] after we went, i am going to be coming back to michigan a lot. i am going to be coming back every time we open a new factory, or new automobile plant, and we will do it, we
12:38 am

12:39 am
have no choice, we have a depleted military. we will be able to do the things we want to do. when you step into that voting today. -- itis now is now today. there is one core question for you to consider. do you want america to be ruled by the corrupt political class, or do you want america to be ruled by you, the people, that is what it is, by the people. the way it was supposed to have been for a long time. we have lost track. michigan, we will bring back your automobile production, and we will bring back your industry. weekly you see what we do for michigan. i have been talking about it for a long time. crooked hillary has not talked about it, folks. she does not know where to begin. she talked about bringing industry back to new york state
12:40 am
when she was in new york state senator. let me tell you, not only did it not come back, look at upstate new york to my it is a disaster. it got worse. people fled, companies fled, it is a disaster. andcorrupt politicians their special interests have ruled over this country for a very long time. today is our independence day. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: today, the american working class is going to strike back, finally. withchange begins immediately repealing and replacing the disaster known as obamacare. it has just been announced that the residents of michigan are going to experience a massive premium hike like you would not believe.
12:41 am
it is not going to matter that much, honestly, as we are going to terminate it. you will not have to worry about it. don't worry. now, on the other hand, if something horrible happens tomorrow, get ready to pay a lot more than you are even paying now, but that is not going to happen, i am looking at that and test again lady right there, she is shaking her head, no way, not going to happen, right? not going to happen. i do not think you will have to worry about the premiums. but with obama care, premiums are surging, companies are legion -- leading, insurers are fleeing, doctors are quitting, and adaptable's are going right through the roof. yet hillary clinton wants to double down on obamacare, making it even more expensive and it does not work. it is no good. so wesking for your vote can repeal and replace obamacare and save health care for every family in michigan and
12:42 am
throughout the united states of america. we have to do it. we do not have a choice. means restoring honesty to our government. so the first thing we should do, let's get rid of hillary, ok? that is probably -- that would be a very good first step, that is a good first step. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: hillary clinton is the most corrupt person ever to seek the office of the presidency of the united states. protected by a totally rigged system that i have been talking about for a long time.
12:43 am
it is a rigged system. now, it is up to the american people to deliver justice at the ballot box. i do not have to say do it tomorrow, do it in a week, you are going to do it today, you will go to sleep for a couple of hours, right? you go to sleep for a couple of hours, you wake up, you cast your vote and you go back to sleep or go to work, you people do not go to sleep, you will go back to work. i know my people. you will get up after about two hours, you will vote and go to work. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: i know my michigan people. i know. i have so many friends here, they work. they do not stop. we are finally going to close the history books on the clintons and their lies and schemes and corruption. we will open a bright new
12:44 am
chapter, focused on you, the american people. my contract with the american voter begins with a plan to end government corruption and to take our country back from the special interests. i want the entire corrupt washington establishment to hear our words, our words, when we say, you know what we are going to say, we are going to win today and we are going to washington, d.c. to drain the swamp. absolutely. absolutely. it,probably heard me say drain the swamp. chanting "drain the

[cheering] mr. trump: oh, thank you. really great. say hello to your family. billy graham is 98 years old. this is amazing -- truly one of the great, great men. our failed political establishment has delivered nothing but poverty at home and disaster overseas. they get rich making america poorer. it is time to reject a media and political elite that has bled our country dry. [cheering]
1:56 am
mr. trump: it's finally time for us to fight for america and to fight for america. [audience chanting "usa! usa!"] mr. trump: i'm not a politician. my only special interest is you. you know -- [cheering] mr. trump: i built a great company. one of the great companies. one of the great real estate companies. some of the most incredible assets in the world, including durell right down the road. we have had a tremendous career. but -- and i was on the other side. my whole life, i was always watching, watching. i was on the other side.
1:57 am
it's a very nice and very comfortable to be on the other side. but i love this country. and this country was going bad. it was going bad. so, i went like from sort of an ultimate insider, with people that absolutely said, well, don, how are you? they would come over, i would give them a check for some freaky thing. -- check for some crazy thing they are doing. they would say, don, how are you? then they go, donald who? we don't know donald trump. you have to see these guys. i know them better than anybody. it was time. it was time. i had to join the other side, which is you. we are going to do things so special. our country was in trouble. $20 trillion in debt, making deals like the deal with a ran -- with iran where we give them
1:58 am
$150 billion, where we give them $1.7 billion in cash. do you know what that is? that would fill up an arena. nobody had even heard of things like this. when you look at -- our military is allowed to deplete. our military is very depleted. we can do that. this is among the times when we most need a tremendous of -- tremendous and powerful and smart military. we need smart people. [cheering] mr. trump: and obamacare is a disaster. everything is wrong. our country doesn't win anymore. we are going to start winning again, ok? [cheering and applause] mr. trump: real change begins with immediately repealing and replacing obamacare. it has just been
1:59 am
announced that the residents of florida -- sorry to tell you this, folks -- i don't want to make you depressed. half of you will walk out of the room. are going to experience massive, double-digit premium hikes, ok? and they are far greater than you have been told. you have been told numbers as they did not want to do it before the election. i worked very hard to force those numbers out. they're going to have a great impact -- you know my poll numbers are going through the roof. i believe a part of it is obamacare. we are going to repeal it and replace it. [cheering and applause] mr. trump: in the great state of arizona, premiums are going up 116%. over 90% of the counties in florida are losing obamacare, and they are losing the insurers that put obamacare there. but you know what? we are going to make it 100% of the counties because we are going to terminate obamacare, and it's not going to make a
2:00 am
difference. we will be terminating obamacare, and we will be replacing it with so many different options that you will have great health care at a fraction, a fraction, of the cost. and it will be great. with obamacare, premiums are surging, companies are leaving, insurers are fleeing, doctors are quitting and deductibles are going through the roof. yet crooked hillary clinton wants to double down on obamacare, make it even more expensive. going to go way up. obamacare is going to go much higher. [audience chanting "lock her up!"]
2:01 am
mr. trump: nobody in this room can believe what is going on in washington. nobody in this room can believe what is going on with the fbi and the department of justice. nobody. nobody. nobody can believe it. i'm asking for your vote so we can repeal and replace obamacare and state health care for every family in florida and our great country. real change also means restoring honesty to our government. hillary clinton is the most corrupt person ever to seek the office of the presidency of the united states. she threatened national security. she sold her office to the highest bidder, and to cover her tracks, she deleted at least 33,000 e-mails after receiving a congressional subpoena.
2:02 am
[booing] hillary clinton is being protected by a totally rigged system. now it is up to the american people to deliver justice at the ballot box tomorrow. that is what is going to happen. [cheering and applause] mr. trump: that is what is going to happen. my contract with the american voter begins with a plan to end government corruption and take back our country and take it back swiftly from the special interests, who i know so well. i want the entire corrupt washington establishment to hear the words we are all about to say. when we went tomorrow, we are going to -- [in unison with audience] train
2:03 am
-- drain the swamp. [cheering and applause] [audience chanting "drain the swamp"] mr. trump: you know, the other day, you read where hillary clinton called entertainers because she can't get anybody -- nobody wants to go. i see she is doing fine, i'm doing fine in the polls and all that. i don't know how. nobody goes to her rallies. so, she got jay-z and beyonce and the language they used was so bad. [booing] the language. the language was so bad. and as they were singing?
2:04 am
singing, right? talking? wasn't talking or singing? i don't know. but the language was so bad -- by the time hillary got up, there was nobody there. but -- the crooked media, those people back that, the most dishonest people -- [booing] mr. trump: the crooked media does nothing. they don't explain it. they don't explain it. and isn't it amazing that when jay-z and beyonce use filthy language in their songs, using words that if i ever said those words, it would be the reinstitution of the electric chair, right? it is true.
2:05 am
the use these words in she comes on and hugs them like everything is ok. and yet with me, he is very lewd. that is the new word. lewd. i have never seen anything like it in my life. she is such a phony. she is such a phony. [cheering and applause] mr. trump: i will say this -- i will that billy graham ever spoke like this. do we agree? this is different than a billy graham crusade. but you know what? we are all looking for the same thing. we are looking for greatness for our country. we are looking for religious liberty. [cheering and applause] mr. trump: we are looking for religious liberty. but we are somewhat different personalities. look at this mess. look at this mess. oh, wow. wow. that's beautiful. look at that. looks just like me.
2:06 am
[cheering] [crowd noise] [cheering] mr. trump: nice head of hair. i will say that. thank you. is there any place more fun to be then a trump rally? [cheering] mr. trump: at the core of my contract is my plan to bring back our jobs. [cheering] mr. trump: florida has lost one in four of his manufacturing
2:07 am
jobs since nafta, a deal signed by bill clinton, and supported by his lovely wife hillary. [booing] mr. trump: america has lost -- hard to believe this -- 70,000 factories since china injured the -- entered the world organization, -- the world trade organization, another bill and hillary-backed disaster. look. no country has ever lost jobs like us. they are sucked out of our country, the company's leave, they fire everybody, they go to mexico and many other countries. never happened before like this and we are going to stop it a just going to stop it day one. -- going to stop it day one. it's so easy to stop. so easy. so easy to stop. a trump administration will stop the jobs from leaving america and we will stop the jobs from leaving florida.
2:08 am
promise. [cheering and applause] if a company wants to fire you, their workers, leave florida, and moved to another country -- like mexico as an example -- and ship their products back into the united states through what will become an unbelievably strong border, i will tell you -- [cheering] mr. trump: we will make them pay a 35% tax on those products. [cheering and applause] mr. trump: and i will tell you what's going to happen. i'll tell you what is going to happen. nobody is going to leave. the model no longer works. ford is leaving. i was in michigan last night. ford is leaving. they are all leaving. that is why i am going to win michigan. i believe we are going to win michigan. [cheering and applause] mr. trump: michigan -- they have
2:09 am
ripped, they have ripped cars out of their factories, out of their plants -- same thing, ohio. so many companies have gone to mexico and other countries, and we are going to win these states by tremendous amounts because people are tired of being ripped off. that is what is happening. they are being ripped off. they are being led by politicians who -- frankly -- i went to an ivy league school. i was a good student and all that stuff, but some words, you can't duplicate them. we are tired of being led by stupid people. they are stupid. they are stupid. [cheering and applause] mr. trump: we will renegotiate nafta, stand up to china, and stop the job killing transpacific partnership, which will be a disaster.
2:10 am
hillary clinton said it was the gold standard, and she is right. remember, she lied in the debate . she said i never said -- i said, you did say it. she lied. turns out she was right though. it was the gold standard for other countries, not for us. she was actually right. she should have said that. she doesn't know what she is doing. as part of our plan, to bring back jobs, we will lower taxes on american business from 35% to 15%. [cheering and applause] mr. trump: and we are going to massively cut taxes to the middle class -- who i call the forgotten people. these are the forgotten men and women. they built our country. hillary clinton wants to raise taxes.
2:11 am
oh, i love those signs. blacks for trump. hold that sign up. [cheering and applause] mr. trump: i'm telling you. blacks for trump. you know -- you know -- one of the things they are seeing in a couple of these states like florida, african-americans are not turning out, and when they do, they are a lot of them voting for trump. this is very disturbing to the other side. they are not turning out because they don't care about her. she has got not a lot of inspiration. she used the term called super predator to define black youth, right? super predator. [booing] mr. trump: they are not turning out. they are not turning out. and then they are worried because when they do turn out, i'm getting so many more than was anticipated.
2:12 am
[cheering and applause] mr. trump: i think the same is going to be true with hispanics. you know, the cubans gave me the award. the bay of pigs association last week gave me the award, man of the year. and it was a great honor. now, we are going to do great with the african-americans, we are going to do great with the hispanics, and the other side is starting to see it, and they are not happy. they are not happy.

2:13 am
billions of dollars in global warming payments to the united nations. those payments will disappear. and we will use all of that money to invest in the infrastructure, and we could even say the environmental infrastructure, of our country. [cheering] mr. trump: and remember this. when it comes to environment, because i received very many of -- many environmental awards. people do not want to talk about that. that's ok. -- because i received a very many environmental awards. we need crystal clear water, we need immaculate air, and we need safety. we give billions and billions of dollars away. you can imagine who is taking that money. you can imagine. we don't even know. he goes, "hillary is taking it""
2:14 am
probably. hey, you are probably smart -- you are pretty smart. probably she gets her piece. we will create jobs and opportunities for african-americans and hispanic americans that have been failed so badly. they have been lied to, they have been cheated to by the democratic party. she wants your vote, thanks a lot, see you in four years. that's what happens. we are going to do a job. for instance, i met recently the leaders in the puerto rican community. a great community. i know it well. they are being crushed by high taxes, regulations, and failed education policies of hillary clinton and obama. do you know what obama is now? not working on jobs. not working on mosul, where they gave four months advance notice -- our military: we are going in

2:43 am
-- maybe it is not worth voting at all, let me say today the choice in this election could not be clearer. it really is between division or unity, between strong and steady leadership or a loose cannon, between an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top, and an economy that is set up and run for those at the top. now, i have spent my public career fighting for kids and families, and standing up for our country. and if you give me the privilege of your vote tomorrow, that is what i will do every single day of my presidency. house get up at the white , and i will think about what i knock down day to barriers, to create
2:44 am
havetunities so that you the chance to fulfill your own dreams. you see, i believe america's best days are still ahead of us. now, that does not mean we don't have to work for it, because we do. that does not mean that we can just expect it to happen as kind of a birthright. but i really believe that. i would not have worked for 18 months, traveled across our country, thought as hard as i have about what we need to do and how to do it together, defend thend up and legacy of president obama, which has given our country progress in the right direction, if i did not believe with all my heart that we could do this. right? we can do this! accept a darkto
2:45 am
and divisive vision for america. vote for ae can hopeful, inclusive, big-hearted america. and -- [applause] mrs. clinton: our core values are being tested in this peoplen, and i know that are frustrated. a lot of people feel left out and left behind. anger, inear, even our country. say, anger is to not a plan, my friends. if we are going to harness our energy and try to overcome our problems, then we got to start talking to each other again, and we have to get good ideas, wherever they come from. last night, i was in manchester, new hampshire, and i was with --
2:46 am
, whose sonmr. khan was killed while serving in iraq. you might remember him from the democratic convention. he was not a man seeking to be on the stage of a political convention, but when he heard my opponent say what he said about , and he looked at the flag that had been draped on his son's coffin, he felt compelled to speak out. he spoke powerfully about what america means to him, and how we have to defend our values and our constitution. son, said last night, his serving in the united states army, with his unit, saw something suspicious, moved toward it to check it out,
2:47 am
telling his men to stay behind, and when the car exploded, he lost his life. he was awarded the bronze star and purple heart. id, when youhan sa listen to all of the people that my opponent has insulted and denigrated, would there be a place in donald trump's america for captain khan? gives me hope, because they truly believe in the values of this great country up,urs, and they have stood holding the constitution, as he did at the convention, to say, people around the world cherish this constitution. believe in our values. it is a source of hope for billions of people.
2:48 am
that go,ever, ever let and we will never let someone ripped it away -- rip it away in the kind of negative, divisive, hateful campaign that we have seen on the other side in this election. [cheering] mrs. clinton: sometimes, when i speak, i don'tt recognize the country he is talking about. that does not mean we do not have problems and challenges. that does not mean we do not have to do more to help people across our country get better economic opportunities. of course we do. but boy, i believe we can do it. i love our country. i believe in the american people. i know what we are capable of. history,t our generations of americans have risen together to meet the tests of their times. they defended democracy, built
2:49 am
the greatest middle class the world has ever known, marched for civil rights and voting rights, for workers rights and women's rights, lgbt rights, and rights for people with disabilities. [applause] tomorrow, we face the test of our time. will we be coming together as a nation, or splitting further apart. that all of usls can help meet, or will we turn on each other and pit one group of americans against another? now, our names will be on the ballot tomorrow, but those values, and every issue you care about, will be there too. what kind of country do we want? and i particularly think about this for young people, as i look at this crowd and see so many
2:50 am
students and other young americans who deserve the same opportunities in this country that many of us were given. and we will. we will make sure they are available. because if you think about what it takes to have a thriving america, it comes down to a couple of key issues. if you believe that america thrives when the middle class thrives, then you have to vote. you are going to make the biggest investment in good-paying jobs since world war ii. jobs and infrastructure, small business, clean energy, advanced manufacturing. [applause] are going to we actually deliver on that, unlike my opponent, who makes his products mostly overseas, buys cheap chinese steel and aluminum instead of what is made by american steelworkers right here in pennsylvania.
2:51 am
we are going to invest in america, and we are especially going to invest in communities that are left out and left behind. we are going to stand up for the right of workers to organize and bargain. we are going to get incomes rising across america. that we needlieve a fairer economy, as i do, then we are going to raise the national minimum wage. the cause nobody who works full-time should still be in poverty. and we are going to do more to support working families with affordable childcare, paid family leave. and finally, equal pay for women's work! crowd: [cheering] you,clinton: i got to tell this always gets about the biggest applause ever cover
2:52 am
because fundamentally, we know it is not fair. about families. you have a mother, a wife, a sister, or a daughter who is working, you don't want her shortchanged, do you? about equal pay as well as these other family issues, my opponent says i am playing the woman card. well you know what i say? deal me in. [applause] you know, if you believe all of our kids should have good schools and good teachers, no matter what zip code they live in, then you have to vote. if you believe we can make college affordable for every young american, you have got to vote. you know, i got to say, i was very proud of the primary campaign that bernie sanders and
2:53 am
iran. it was a campaign on issues and ideas, not insults. and after it was over, he and i got together, and we came up with this plan. public colleges and universities should be tuition-free for everyone who makes less than $125,000 a year. should be debt free for everyone else. i do not think you should go into this massive debt to get your education. it is good for you. it is good for your families. it is good for our country. and we are going to make it affordable for everyone. the millions of americans already struggling with student debt, we are going to ease that burden. we are going to get those interest rates down. you a going to give different way of repaying it as a percentage of your income, not tied to a 6%, 8%, 10% interest rate. and you are never going to have to pay more than you can afford.
2:54 am
you see, i think there are a lot of positive things to get excited about, and i think the agenda we have put forth in this campaign is one that will really give everyone hope. you see, working for children and families has been the cause of my life. but it has never been more important than it is right now area so this has to be our mission together, doing all we can to help every american, especially every young american, and especially every child to have the chance to live up to your got have been given potential. the cause when it is all said and done, that is what matters most. have you helped somebody else? have you reached out and trying to ease somebody's burden? we do it individually. through agot neglected, abandoned childhood because people showed her kindness. her own parents did not want her. her grandparents did not want
2:55 am
her. but the first grade teacher who saw she had nothing to eat brought extra food every day to make sure my mother had something to eat. [applause] when she was and 14 and had to go out and find a gotto support herself, and a job as a maid and a babysitter in somebody's home, she was just relieved that she had a place to live and that she could support herself. but the mother of that home understood my mom wanted to go to high school, so she said, dorothy, if you get up early and you get your chores done, you can go to high school. you will have to come right back, because we will need you, but you can do it. look, that sounds harsh to our ears, telling a 14-year-old, ok, you can go to high school, but you have to come right back and work on both sides of it, but to my mother, it was a blessing. so when i think about what so
2:56 am
many people have gone through to give us the opportunities that we have had -- and i am speaking my mother gave me the resilience, the grit, the get up and go. she told me, everybody gets knocked down. what matters is whether you get back up. [applause] and we had a lot of americans knocked down because of the great recession, didn't we? millions of jobs lost. millions of homes were lost. family wealth was wiped out. ,avings accounts, 401(k)s everything people had worked so hard for you. well, we have dug ourselves out of the hole. now we've got to get up. and we got to make sure we don't leave anybody behind. i see this man standing here with a sign, coal miners for hillary. and i will tell you, sir --
2:57 am
[applause] mrs. clinton: i know how hard times are. and as i have said, and you can take it to the bank, i will not forget you, and i will do everything i can to help people who have given so much, worked so hard throughout their lives for generations, to build this country. we are not going to forget any americans! but i can't do any of this without your help tomorrow. is going to really set the course of our country. .here is no doubt in my mind tonight, i will be in philadelphia with president obama and michelle. crowd: [cheering] mrs. clinton: and i so appreciate how hard they have worked for me. but it is not for me. it is for us.
2:58 am
you know, when president obama came into office, put yourself in his shoes, this young, dynamic, first african-american elected to become president of the united states. find?at does he he finds the worst financial crisis since the great depression. that's what he finds. wow, those were hard, hard times. i don't think he gets the credit he deserves for making sure we did not go even deeper into the ditch we were in. but make no mistake. --re were reasons we and the we ended up in the ditch. it did not happen by accident. we had huge tax cuts on the wealthy. the administration and office took their eyes off the financial markets. and we know what happened. they ignored the pressures in the mortgage market. and we know what happened.
2:59 am
consequences for everything we care about. and that is why we have got to you each and every one of put down your stake in our future. if the lines are long tomorrow, please wait. [applause] mrs. clinton: in early voting, we have had people waiting in ,ine for two and three hours and there have been reporters and others going up and down the line, asking people, all kinds of americans -- not one type, all types -- why are you here? because my future depends on it, they say. [applause] so, tomorrow is the election, but that is just the beginning.
3:00 am
we have to heal this country. we have to bring people together , listen, and respect each other. now, i know it is unusual for somebody running for president to say this. i started saying this months ago, because i literally was meeting people who were scared by what they were hearing in the election. i have known a lot of the republicans who have run for president, been elected president in recent history. i did not agree with them on everything, obviously. we had our differences. but i did not doubt that they were fit to serve as president. this election is different. this person is temperamentally unqualified, experientially unqualified to be president and commander in she, and so many people -- commander in chief, and so many people know that. so i think we do need
