7:29 pm
state, what a state. well, i went to school in pennsylvania, right. let me take a moment now to recognize your great congressman in attendance tonight, they were with me from the beginning. you?where are marino. and kim murphy. i just saw in it the audience, jeffrey lord, he fought so hard. jeffrey, it is so unfair, they 7-1, cnn, they stack it
7:30 pm
against him. they are not happy with the results of this election. it was a stampede. the camera just went off, i also went to give a very special thank you to the men and women of the united states military. we are in your debt. and we will never let you down. as part of our commitment to those who serve, we are going to rebuild our badly depleted military, and we're going to finally take care of our brave veterans. we are going to take care of them. believe me. our defense policy can be summed
7:31 pm
up in three very important words -- peace through strength. we are going to get to the military going, folks. we are going to negotiate tougher deals. where we get more equipment for less money. for instance, you saw the other day about an airplane. now, i have a nice airplane, was going tone cost $4.2 billion. air force one. i don't want a plane to fly costs the cost -- that 4.2 billion dollars, believe me. not going to happen. going to work with boeing -- and i didn't order it -- but we are going to work with boeing. we are going to cut the price
7:32 pm
way down. way, way down. ?nd how about the f-35 fighter a disaster. totally out of control. so, we are going to get more equipment for our military, and we are going to get better equipment for our military at a smaller price. does that make sense? ok, believe me. we are also going to stop trying to build new nations in far-off -- eve never even heard of these places. -- you've never even heard of these places. we are going to stop. we are going to be so strong. we are going to be so respected. we are going to be so powerful. we are not respected now, and believe me, it's going to turn. we are going to have this great, incredible, but you know what? i don't think we are ever going to have to use it, and that would be very, very nice.
7:33 pm
america first. very, very nice. , my administration will focus squarely on the vital national security interests of the united states, and that means crushing isis and defeating radical islam x terrorism -- islamic terrorism. we are going to defeat it, quickly. to be a strong nation, we must also be a wealthy or a rich nation, and some people say, mr. now they say mr. president-elect, can you believe it? just call me donald, folks. they say mr. president-elect, it
7:34 pm
doesn't sound good when you say rich nation. i say we have to be a rich nation if we are going to rebuild our military, if we are , we havebuild the wall to be a rich nation. if we are going to repeal and replace a obamacare, we have to know what we are doing, and we have to be a wealthy nation again. cars,r it is building producing steel, or curing disease, we want the next generation of innovation and production to happen right here, right here in america, and right here in the great state of pennsylvania. and i have to tell you about pennsylvania. they were all saying -- for years andght
7:35 pm
years that i couldn't win pennsylvania as a republican. this is such an important state. they were saying, he won't win it. he is down in the polls. i didn't understand it because all of these gentlemen back here, these tremendous people that love you, your congressman, they were saying every yard in pennsylvania has a trump-pence sign. right? and we would go to rallies like, look at the side of -- size of this place. every corner is packed. turn the cameras. show. show. show. world most dishonest people. these are dishonest people. any cameras -- look, they are not turning. they never turn. what a shame.
7:36 pm
there he dishonest people. people.dishonest ferry, very dishonest people. very, very dishonest people. take a look this crowd. the only way the people at home know is by the sound. that is not the sound of 500 or 1000 people, folks. and outside it is freezing, and we have 8000 people standing out there listening. so, but pennsylvania. is an amazing place. and i have been hearing -- and i don't know, because i know you have been listening. we are doing a thank you tour. thank you, ohio. thank you, iowa. differentto the
7:37 pm
places where we won, swing states, mostly, but different places where we won. and by the way, we won in a landslide. this was a landslide victory. so, we went to michigan. how about michigan and wisconsin . how good was that? that was on top of everything. and you know, they did not want to call pennsylvania. you saw that, right? remember? it was stuck at 99% all lack fish all night long. allif i lost 100% -- 99% night long. and if i lost 100% of the remaining votes, i would have won. but it was stuck for hours. i don't know if they did that because they were so devastated or ifat was happening they wanted to keep it going because of the audience they had. the audience was record-setting,
7:38 pm
and i think maybe they wanted to prolong the evening for commercial sake, right? one of those reasons. maybe both. it i will tell you -- and have been going -- and i have been saying -- i said the other night in wisconsin. if you want, i will give you a little recap. should i, or should i not? are you sure? we will make this recap pertained to pennsylvania, right? we don't have to talk about the other ones. it is true. longe been hearing for a time that everybody leaves pennsylvania thinking that they've won, republicans. but for 30 years, they lose i a lot. -- by a lot. i thought we were going to win. i've been doing this for a long time, mr. trump. i guarantee you victory. i said write it down. he said nope, i'm not doing that.
7:39 pm
i wanted a guarantee. right from the beginning, they were with me. but they felt so sure. was, i keptblem hearing all these things that nobody ever wins. so, what happens is, the evening a greatand ohio, what place. it's hard to win states when you don't have the governor, right? it's pretty hard. but you know what? he's called. it would have been nice if he called a couple of weeks earlier. he called. he's been very nice. were supposed to win ohio by two points, maybe three points. we won a pile as 10 points, right? -- we won it by almost 10 points, right? so, that was good. and we got those polls -- you know they were phony polls, ok? what's the purpose of doing
7:40 pm
phony polls when you are going to know the real answer in three hours? what are they doing? they can't help themselves. we got these bad exit polls. we really thought based on the exit polls that it was going to be a short evening, bad. and jared was here, and a vodka. they called and said dad. i made a speech in michigan where i started speaking at 12:30 a.m., on election day. that was my seventh speech of the day. seventh. and the crowds are all like this. and you know the beauty about crowds like this? this place is packed. but there is a difference between before the election and after the election. before the election, you people are like wild beasts, wild animals. you are going to win. you are going to win. they are screaming jail, jail,
7:41 pm
prison, right? they are going crazy. .ow they are screaming we want the wall, we want the wall, build the wall. we are going to build the wall, don't worry about it. ok. but i was telling somebody -- and now, the crowds are amazing. get au know, it's hard to big crowd after an election. if somebody else, a normal person, came after an election, even after a victory, and had 15 people, they would say we had enough. this place is packed. this is a big stadium, by the way. but there is something different about a crowd before the election, like when i was here a few weeks ago, and after the election. before the election, they are
7:42 pm
brutal. they are so crazed. they are like crazed people. i like that. and now, laid-back. hey. onward, mr. trump, onward. right? no, it's great, it's beautiful. in other words, you've won, and you feel great about it, and you crazy, right?go much different. much different. different. it's much different. you are laid-back, and that's good. not really exactly laid-back, but pretty different. so, we had to win pennsylvania, but it started off with ohio, big, big victory.
7:43 pm
hisone i like to tell texas, georgia, utah, right? because they started off about two months before the election -- you just don't lose texas as a republican. you don't. and you don't lose georgia, and you don't lose utah. has utah ever been lost? what he says? he's like ronald reagan. that's all he has to say. trump is like ronald reagan. we love you, jeffrey. this guy takes such abuse on cnn. we love him? i hope he's getting paid a lot of money because he deserves it, believe me. but it sort of incredible. they are saying texas is in play. texas is in play. i said texas has never been in play. and i go to texas and i make a
7:44 pm
speech in an arena bigger than this one. it's packed. 10,000 people inside and i say how could it possibly be in play. but you saw it, right? and then they say georgia. in georgia, you are supposed to win by a lot. they have me even. and in utah, they have this character -- i never saw a guy like this. this guy was horrible. said, the third-party candidate looks like he has trump in trouble. and my wife looked at him and said you are not going to lose. she knows more than these dishonest people. they knew it. they knew it. they knew it. so, what happens? you know what happens because you watched it. they had a record audience, the biggest they have ever had, and
7:45 pm
the polls opened, and now they are close. and now they go on live all over the country, really, all over the world, and the first thing has gone toexas donald trump. i said what happened? they owe a off with breaking news. we have -- they always started off with breaking news. we have breaking news. this was a state that was supposed to be late in the night. we have breaking news, texas has gone to donald trump. that's good. i was a little worried, you know. that's why nobody believes these people. then about 12 seconds later, we have breaking news. georgia has gone to donald trump. right? again, state of utah, and i
7:46 pm
love utah, and i could not believe i was tied with this guy, this guy nobody had ever heard of, nobody. and he is saying, if you wins utah, he thinks he can win the whole thing. i don't understand. i tell you. what he could have done is, if he had one utah, except that he won by so much, he could have from appointing supreme court judges, right? sort of a bad guy. so i watch this guy and i hear that basically i'm tied in utah. and they go we have breaking news. utah has gone to donald trump. thank you. i would've lost utah. so now i have these threes at her like solidly -- i mean we
7:47 pm
won by -- i mean, utah. many points i one utah. it wasn't even close. massive. huge. they are all huge. then they go to ohio. then they go to iowa. they just appointed their great governor, the longest-serving governor in our country's history, 24 years old -- tony for years almost. china.dor to he loves china. whenever i speak in iowa, he a favor.ld, do me please don't say anything bad about china. and i didn't. but i just appointed him ambassador to china. he is going to be an amazing representative. they like him and he likes them a lot. so, now i was expected to win ohio, but not by nearly as much. i was expected to win iowa, but
7:48 pm
not by over 10 points. nobody wins iowa. so this is like a good story, because when my kids told me about the exit polls, which were nonsense, i sort of thought in work anyell, i can't harder, so i don't feel that bad. i still felt bad. don't worry about it. until the real polls. so then we start. leading, and we are leading, and we haven't even gotten to our area, and boy, do we love the panhandle, right? and we are leading just a little bit, a little bit, and then they go on the air and say we will win -- some guy. i never even heard of this guy says we will win the state of florida. say wait a minute, we are
7:49 pm
leading by a little bit and my voters have an even caught on yet, right? all of a say wait a sudden, thee another one, another consultant. guy $15bably paid this ourion for destroying campaign. these consultants are the worst. the old days, if you spend less money and win, that's a good thing, not a bad thing. i spent much less money. we spent a fraction of the money and won. i have these guys saying hillary clinton has spent much more money than donald trump. and when i say much more, i am talking seriously. much more than donald trump. and mr. trump is ahead by one point, but he has not spent enough money. i say they are scolding me. i've spent less money and i am ahead. remember this, kids in the audience. if you can spend less money and win, that's a good thing, not a bad thing. so, we we go to florida, and alf
7:50 pm
our people are out saying how they are going to win florida. there is no doubt we are going to win the state of florida. unlimitedad all this money, and they had buses lined , and theyr florida said go ahead, and it was all people with red hat's that said make america great again. bus driver doesn't care. he just wants to know, are the seats all full? they don't care. thank you for those buses. so, they are going to win florida according to her pundits, her geniuses, her polls. breaking news, donald trump has won the great state of florida. by a lot.
7:51 pm
then the same pedants -- pundits i can tell you, i had a great conversation with president obama. and i can tell you -- no, no, no. although this foolish guy, josh earnest, i don't know. he's talking to president obama. you know, having the right press secretary is so important because he's so bad the way he delivers a message. he can deliver a positive message and it sounds bad. he could say ladies and , today we have totally defeated isis, and it wouldn't sound good, ok? all right? i have a feeling they won't be saying it, but i know we will be saying it. but the president is very positive, but he is not positive , and i mean, maybe he is
7:52 pm
getting his orders from somebody else? think,aid when do you when do you think you lost and we won? and i will say this, when ohio came in with those huge numbers, when iowa came in with those huge numbers, and then -- huge -- and then we won florida. go out again,s and we are talking about the great state of north carolina. we love north carolina. the great state of north they say there is no way. you have to see how much more money she spent than us. oh, but those buses. you have to see how much money they spent in north carolina. said north carolina -- you have to understand, i've won everything now. south carolina, which is great. i have texas, georgia, iowa,
7:53 pm
everything. now our coming up, and ohio, big state. and that was the other thing -- you cannot win is a republican in less you win ohio. remember that? and then we went in one ohio. it's looking good. then we won florida. but north carolina was our firewall, remember that? ladies and gentlemen, we have breaking news. donald trump has won the state of north carolina. and now you see these terrible, terrible, destructive people, getting a little nervous. john king, nice guy, good with a map, but his hand is starting to shake. oh my god, he won. he said beforer
7:54 pm
the election, there is no path for donald trump. but there's a path to 306. so now we win north carolina. and now we get to pennsylvania, and we are just doing great. in fact, i won it twice, right? it,use i wanted it -- won and then we had this scam operation asking for a recount, and then we won again. i love it. we can win it 3, 4, five times. actually, they did a full recount in wisconsin, and i received 138 votes more. me. i got more votes. scam. remember, i told you, it's a , terrible.em
7:55 pm
but not rigged for us, believe me. it's the other way around. see we are going to win. i start doing interviews, because if we win pennsylvania, it's over, right? so now, i am doing interviews, because it's at 99%, and there aren't even enough votes for it to come close. so i start doing interviews. i felt very comfortable. but what happens? you watched john king, his hand is shaking, quivering. ladies and gentlemen, donald trump has won wisconsin. now, that wasn't supposed to happen. goes -- you can see he's getting ready to throw up. ladies and gentlemen. then they go, we have breaking news.
7:56 pm
i kept waiting for pennsylvania. pennsylvania, because they said ladies and gentlemen, donald trump has won the state of michigan. now, wisconsin hasn't been one for 38 years. michigan hasn't been one for that longer young -- that long or longer. pennsylvania, we didn't even need you guys, isn't that terrible? because they waited so dam long. they took all of your glory away, right? rob did a great job. and david did a great job. david and rob, what a job. so now we need the state of pennsylvania, and it's of a -- it's amazing. people on espn, sports
7:57 pm
people, they said it was the single greatest event they have ever seen. they have seen football, baseball, boxing. and they said it was the greatest. so, i just want to thank the incredible people of pennsylvania, thank you. thank you very much. thank you. unbelievable. and in four years, we are going to win it by even more. all right, let's get back to the subject of jobs, right? because that's what we are here for. enough of that stuff. for years, the jobs and wealth have been ripped out of your state, ripped out of our country like we are a bunch of babies. richgn powers have gotten because weerica dry

7:59 pm
no such thing as a global anthem, a global currency, or a global flag. do we love our flag? do we love it? we salute one flag and that is the american flag. and we are going to make sure the american flag gets the respect it deserves, all right? you know, when i watch the news bumsght and i see these burning the flag and stomping on it, and burning another one and stomping -- no good. no good. doare going to have to maybe
8:00 pm
something about that, what do you think? yes? celebratedwill be and taught very, very strongly to our children. and that patriotism will be the foundation of our economic we are bringing our jobs back, folks. that is why we are going to lower our business tax. we are going to lower our business tax big-league, from 35% to 15%. right now, we are one of the highest-text nations in the world, and we're going to the among the lowest, and we're going to have jobs come pouring back. we want to bring in new companies and new jobs to our shores. that is also why we are going to eliminate job killing regulations, cancel many executive orders -- believe me, we're going to be canceling a
8:01 pm
the restrictions on the production of american energy, including shale, oil, natural gas, and clean coal. and we're going to put our miners back to work. get ready. get those shovels ready. another critical element of our jobs plan is a historic $1 trillion investment in our crumbling infrastructure. our infrastructure is going to hell. we going to fix our infrastructure. we've spent, as of two weeks ago, $6 trillion in the middle east. we could have rebuilt our country three times over, and right now, we are in worse shape in the middle east than we were 15 years ago, when we started, by a factor of 10.
8:02 pm
our bridges are deficient. our roads are in disrepair. and our airports are like third world countries. i'm asking congress to support the construction of new roads, bridges, airports, tunnels, and railways across our nation. we are going to do it. and we're going to build it on time, on budget, not for three times what it's supposed to cost. our people back to work in the process. it's time to help get americans off welfare and back into the labor market. rebuilding our country with american hands and american workers. we are going to rebuild our country. going to do it ourselves, folks. my administration will follow american, rules, by and higher american.
8:03 pm
at the center of this agenda is fixing our absolutely terrible trade deals. nafta, you look at that, it's been defective for 20 years. it's been defective, from the day it was signed, it's been defective. consulting your, congratulations because you are just about the bottom of the pack in this, has lost one third of your manufacturing jobs since nafta, just about as bad as there is in the country. although i must say, michigan and a couple other places have actually done worse. but you are all going to do great now. we are bringing those jobs back. america is now running -- listen to this -- a nearly $800 billion annual trade deficit. all these people that work to make these trade deals, we lose almost $800 billion a year.
8:04 pm
who are these people? any business people in this large, large audience? hard to believe. , andt $800 billion a year we never make good deals. i actually said to my people today, they're going over mexico, doesn't work, china is all-time record setting, going to lose 500 billion trade deficit -- all these places -- and i said, give me a good deal. you know what they said? there are none. it is almost amazing that our country can even make it. but it is not going to make it for much longer if we don't get this thing going. think of it. it is so terrible. we've lost -- and this one i can't even believe -- i say it all the time -- we've lost 70,000 factories since china
8:05 pm
joined the world trade organization. i used to say, who signed it? i used to say, who supported it? we don't care anymore. you know who i'm talking about, right? i don't care. it's a disaster. theft ingreatest jobs the history of the world. nobody's ever lost like we've lost. all because we got sold down the river by our either stupid politicians are corrupt politicians, all right? except for these three guys down here, they are great. a trump administration will defend american industry and it will defend the american worker. you've got to be defended. it will defend the american worker. boy did we come out and vote. you know, they forgot about the american worker. they talked about everybody,
8:06 pm
this group and that group. women, thank you very much. i mean, women. thank you, women. these polls were killing me. the women -- donald has almost no women. then i come and i see the signs. look at those signs. i see these think beautiful signs. we did great with women. we did great with the african-american community, so great. member? remember the famous line, because i talk about crime -- i talk about active education, talk about no jobs, and i would say, what the hell do you have right?, it's true. they are smart and they picked up on it you wouldn't believe. they didn't come out to vote for hillary. -- so thank you
8:07 pm
to the african-american community. thank you to the hispanic community. incredible. the hispanic community was great. they all heard the wall, and guess what. people that are in our country legally, if they are hispanic, they don't want people coming in and taking their jobs. they don't want people coming in and taking their homes. they want to see safety. so the hispanic community was fantastic. and the evangelical christians, unbelievable. we set records, right? set records. i shouldn't say this, this is terrible, but as a couple of our pastors -- a couple of them -- you know, how good was billy graham? was he the greatest? he's got a son, franklin. franklin would say -- and paula white and so many others -- they would say, donald trump may not
8:08 pm
be perfect, but he's going to be the best leader by far, right? may not be perfect. they were great. what great people. we set an all-time record in the history of elections in this country with the evangelicals. that includes what happened in the primaries. remember in the primaries, i was going to lose all these states because of evangelicals, and then i would win by 22 points, like as an example, south carolina, like alabama, like arkansas, like so many, kentucky, and they were all saying, donald trump is doing fantastically with the evangelical christians. but i knew. but we did even better in the general election -- so we had the all-time highest vote in the history of elections, with evangelicals, right? our goal is to bring back a very
8:09 pm
beautiful phrase. do you remember when we were young? some of you don't remember because you are so young already. a young audience. do you remember, we had stamped onto cars and equipment, made in the usa? right? even the young people like it. said made inif it japan or made someplace else, it wasn't considered good. we're going to bring back made in the usa and we going to have a lot of jobs come back. we're going to have a lot of jobs. and you know what, if companies leave and fire their workers, they leave pennsylvania or they leave indiana or they leave any one of the states we are talking about, or any state in the union, they leave, and they go to mexico or some other country -- plenty of them -- and they
8:10 pm

thousands of people, families, that are going to have great christmases in indiana now because of that, but i told them , you are going to make up a lot because you are going to do a lot of business. a lot of people are feeling very strong about what they did. but it's going to be that they will have consequences when they leave our country and think they are going to sell the product right back over our border, no tax, no nothing. it doesn't work that way for other countries. china taxes our products going into china big league and they don't want us anyway. you take a look at other countries, so when they talk about free trade, it is free for them, but not free for us. so that is the way it is. but we have to be a rich nation again. and we have to be a safe nation. the murder rate in the united states is the largest that it has been in 45 years.
