reason -- to say thank you to the incredible people of pennsylvania. thank you. thank you. this is the first time the republican party has won the state of pennsylvania in almost 30 years. [cheering] mr. trump: we made history together. to victory a grassroots movement, the likes of which the world has never, ever seen. it's true. true. , your dedication, and your love for your country pushed us across the finish line. and boy did we get across that line, right?
the patriots in this arena tonight stood up for themselves and for their families, and show the whole world that the american people still run our country. forget you. and i will never, ever stop fighting for you. i will never, ever let you down. believe me. what a state. what a state. well, i went to school in pennsylvania, right? so let me take a moment now to recognize your great congressman in attendance tonight. they were with me from the beginning. where is lou? where are you? tom marino -- and tim murphy.
and i just see in the audience -- i did not know he was here -- jeffrey lord. he fights so hard. -- it is so unfair. they stack up 7-1 on cnn. they stack it up against him. they stack it. crowd: [booing] mr. trump: they are not happy with the results of this election. and it was a stampede. uh oh --the camera just went off, folks. jeffrey, the camera just went off! i also want to give a very special thank you to the men and women of the united states military. incredible people. 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 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. do we agree? where we get more equipment for less money. for instance, you saw the other day about an airplane. now, i have a nice airplane, but this plane was going to cost $4.2 billion.
air force one. i don't want a plane to fly around in that costs 4.2 billion dollars, believe me. 4.2 -- not going to happen. but we are going to work with boeing -- and i didn't order it -- please, remember this. but we are going to work with boeing. we are going to cut the price down. way, way down. and how about the f-35 fighter? a disaster. totally out of control. 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 lands, many areas -- you've never even heard of these places.
ok, 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. and we are going to have this great, incredible, but you know -- incredible, powerful military. but you know what? i don't think we are ever going to have to use it, and that would be very, very nice. america first. be very, very nice. instead -- trump!trump, trump, mr. trump: thank you. instead, my administration will focus squarely on the vital national security interests of the united states, and that means crushing isis and defeating radical islamic terrorism. we are going to defeat it, quickly.
but to be a strong nation, we must also be a wealthy or a rich nation, and some people say, mr. trump -- now they say mr. president-elect, can you believe it? can you believe this? just call me donald, folks. just call me donald. but they say, mr. president-elect, it 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 going to build the wall, we have to be a rich nation. if we are going to repeal and replace obamacare, we have to know what we are doing, and we have to be a wealthy nation again. whether it is building cars, 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. but -- and i have to tell you about pennsylvania. so, you know they were all , saying -- everybody thought for years and years that i couldn't win pennsylvania as a republican. they call it the bride that got away, right? this is such an important state. and they were saying, he won't win it. he is down in the polls. and i didn't understand it because all of these gentlemen back here, these tremendous people that love you, your congressmen, 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. now, the press won't say it. hey, press turn the cameras. ,show them. show them. show them. world's most dishonest people. these are dishonest people. are any cameras -- no, they are not turning. they never turn. they never turn. what a shame. very dishonest people. very, very dishonest people. you know, the only way you know how a crowd -- like, you take a look at this crowd, right? the only way people living at home no -- know is by the sound. it is by the sound. it's true. true. 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 if you want me because i know you have been , listening. we are doing a thank you tour. thank you, ohio. thank you, iowa. thank you to the different 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. this was a landslide. -- 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
-- 99% all night long. and if i lost 100% of the remaining votes, i would have won by a lot of votes but it was , stuck for hours and hours. i don't know if they did that because they were so devastated out what was happening or if they wanted to keep it going because of the audience they had. the audience was record-setting, and i think maybe they wanted to prolong the evening for commercial sake, right? but, one of those two reasons. maybe it is both. but i will tell you -- and i 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 of the night. should i, or should i not? are you sure? ok, and we will make this recap pertain to pennsylvania, right? we don't have to talk about the other ones. but it is true. so i have been hearing for a , long time that everybody
leaves pennsylvania thinking that they've won, republicans. and again, almost 30 years, and every time they lose by a lot. , i thought we were going to win. these three characters were saying, don't worry about it, mr. trump. you are going to win. i tell you, marino said 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. i wanted a guarantee. but right from the beginning, they were with me. but they felt so sure. the only problem was, i kept hearing all these things that nobody ever wins. even though they think, pennsylvania. so, what happens is, the evening begins, and ohio, what a great place. i had a little problem, you know -- it is pretty hard to win states when you don't have the governor, right? it's pretty hard. 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.
but -- but we were supposed to win ohio by two points, maybe three points. we won it by almost 10 points, right? so, that was good. we got those polls -- you know they were phony polls, ok? what's the purpose of doing 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, prison, right? they are going crazy. now -- 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. and you know, it's hard to get a 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 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 don't have to go crazy, right? 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. the one i like to tell his 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? you know what he says? he's like ronald reagan. that's all he has to say. donald 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 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. but they have me even. and in utah, they have this character -- i never saw a guy like this. this guy was horrible. and they 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 the polls opened, and now they close. and now they go on live all over the country, really, all over the world, and the first thing they do -- texas has gone to donald trump. i said what happened? they go 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? then again, state of utah, and i 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 stopped us 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 three like solidly -- i mean we won by -- i mean, utah. to do see how 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 almost. ambassador to china. he loves china. whenever i speak in iowa, he
goes, donald, do me a favor. 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 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 my mind well, i can't work any 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.
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. i say wait a minute, we are leading by a little bit and my voters have an even caught on yet, right? all of a sudden, they have another one, another consultant. they probably paid this guy $15 million for destroying our campaign. these consultants are the worst. in 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 go to florida, and all of 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. and they had all this unlimited money, and they had buses lined up all over florida, and they said go ahead, and it was all people with red hats that said make america great again. so the 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. then the same pundits get on, and 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
gentlemen, 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 getting his orders from somebody else? but i said when do you think, 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. now the pundits go out again, and we are talking about the great state of north carolina.
we love north carolina. the great state of north carolina, so, 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. and they said north carolina -- you have to understand, i've won everything now. south carolina, which is great. i have texas, georgia, iowa, everything. now our coming up, and ohio, big state. and that was the other thing -- you cannot win as 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. because remember, he said before the election, there is no path to 270 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? because i won it, and then we had this scam operation asking for a recount, and then we won
again. i love it. we can win it three, four, 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 rigged system, terrible. but not rigged for us, believe me. it's the other way around. i 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. then he goes -- you can see he's getting ready to throw up. ladies and gentlemen -- then they go, we have breaking news. i kept waiting for pennsylvania. why wait for pennsylvania, because they said, ladies and gentlemen, donald trump has won the state of michigan. now, wisconsin hasn't been won for 38 years. michigan hasn't been wne for won for that long or longer.
pennsylvania, we didn't even need you guys, isn't that terrible? because they waited so damn 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. and the people on espn, sports 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. foreign powers have gotten rich bleeding america dry because we have people that don't know what they are doing or worse than that, and our politicians stood by and did absolutely nothing, and that is now all about to end, and it's going to end quickly. the era of economic surrender is over. you, the people of pennsylvania, are finally going to have a champion who fights for you in
the white house, because from now on, it's going to be america first, remember. people talk about how we are living in a globalized world, but the relationships people value most are local -- family, city, state, country, local. there is 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 at night and i see these bums burning the flag and stomping on it, and burning another one and stomping -- no good. no good. we are going to have to maybe do something about that, what do you think? yes? patriotism will be celebrated and taught very, very strongly to our children. and that patriotism will be the foundation of our economic plan, bringing jobs back to america. we are bringing our jobs back. 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-taxed 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 lot -- and lift 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 are 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. 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. and we will put 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 two simple rules -- buy american and hire american. 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 1/3 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. who are these people? any business people in this large, large audience? hard to believe. almost $800 billion a year, and 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. 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 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. it's the greatest jobs theft in 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, this group and that group. by the way, 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 beautiful signs. we did great with women. we did great with the african-american community, so
great. remember? remember the famous line, because i talk about crime -- i talk about education, talk about no jobs, and i would say, what the hell do you have to lose, 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. that was the big -- so thank you 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 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 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. and frankly, if it said made in 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 think they are going to fire everybody and have their product come right through those borders -- those borders are going to be so strong now -- and they are going to sell that product and that product isn't going to be taxed, probably at about a rate of 35%, and here's what's going to happen. the people that write the articles, they say donald trump is not a free trader. no, i'm a smart trader. you are going to put that tariff on.
company leaves, makes their air conditioner -- carrier was very nice, by the way. what they don't know is the people that did go down there, going to be a little hard to sell that product back, but we won't talk about that. but carrier was fantastic. i hope you go and buy some carrier air conditioners. they are one of the few that are left in this country. and i told the people at carrier, you saw all the carrier, you saw all the publicity they got, and we have 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. nobody knows that. they don't tell you that. they don't want to. and we are going to support the incredible men and women of law enforcement, and we are going to bring this terrible crime wave to an immediate end, and it can go quickly. one of the greatest public safety threats remains open borders. i always say, there goes your
safety, there goes your country. we will build a great, great wall, and we will put an end to illegal immigration, and we are going to stop the drugs from pouring into our country, and poisoning the youth of pennsylvania and every other state. going to stop it. we're going to build a wall. we're going to build it. we have to. you know, the border patrol, you know this, 16,500 great people -- because their job is much tougher when i win because we are going to enforce the laws. they endorsed me. first time they've ever endorsed
a presidential candidate. ice, the men and women of ice, they are smart, tough, they love the country, they endorsed us. it not me, it's us. what does it mean? it means they have to work harder. but these are people that know what they're doing. we're going to break up the gangs, the cartels, the criminal syndicates terrorizing our cities and our neighborhoods. and they are being terrorized. look at long island, new york. it is really bad. and our local police know who they are and want to do something about it and they are being stopped. we are going to work on that and we're going to get a safe country to protect our country from terrorism and extremism. i will suspend immigration and refugee admissions from regions where they cannot be safely processed or vetted.
we will keep radical islamic terrorists the hell out of our country. going to keep them out. we've got enough problems. we got enough problems, right? we've got to bring our jobs back. we don't want problems. we will build safe zones. when i look at what is going on in syria, it is so sad. it is so sad. we've got to help people. the gulf states have nothing but money. we don't have money. i will get the gulf states to give us lots of money and we will build and help build safe zones in syria so people can have a chance, so they can have
a chance. reform will be a crucial part of our plan as well. we are going to drain the swamp of corruption in washington, right? i will impose a five-year ban on executive branch officials becoming lobbyists and a lifetime ban on officials becoming lobbyists for a foreign government, and i'll tell you what else i'm going to ban. when we have our purchasing agents giving billions and billions of dollars of contracts to the military and to all these people where they are buying airplanes -- take a look at the f35 program. take a look. the people that gave out those contracts -- give me a break. we're going to impose a lifetime ban on people that give these
massive contracts out, or even small contracts -- you want to work for the united states, you work for the united states. you are not going to work for the people that build these planes and the people that do the drugs with all the different things. you know, the cost of drugs in this country, we are about the largest purchaser of pharmaceuticals anywhere in the world, and yet we can't negotiate the price. i wonder why. you don't think it has anything to do with the drug companies? we're going to face many challenges. but this is truly an exciting time to be alive. the script is not yet written. we do not know what the page will read tomorrow. but for the first time in a long, long time, what we do know is that the pages will be authored by each and every one
of you and you. you, the american people, will finally be in charge again. your voice, your desires, your hopes and your aspirations will never again fall on deaf ears. the forgotten men and women of our country will not be forgotten anymore. remember that. you sure as hell weren't forgotten on election day, were you? you hear some of them saying, where are all these people coming from? together, we will raise incomes and create millions and millions of great new jobs. we will repeal the disaster
known as obamacare and create new health care reforms that work for you and your family. we will reestablish the rule of law, defend the second amendment, protect religious liberty, and appoint justices to the united states supreme court who will uphold and defend the constitution of the united states. we will heal our divisions and unify our country. we will be a unified country again. when americans are unified, there is nothing we cannot do. no task is too great. no dream too large. no goal beyond our reach.
my message tonight is for all americans, from all parties, all beliefs, all walks of life, whether you are african-american, hispanic-american, or asian-american, or whatever the hell you are -- remember that we are all americans and we are all united by one shared destiny. so i'm asking everyone -- >> usa! mr. trump: so i'm asking everyone to join this incredible
moment, and that's what it is. all over the world they're talking about what's happening here, all over the world. pundits have said -- and i mean pundits that truly dislike donald trump -- have said this is the single greatest political phenomenon they have ever seen. and it's about you. it's not about me. it's about you. i'm asking you to dream big and bold and daring things for your family and for your country. i am asking you to believe in yourself again and i'm asking you to believe in america. and if we do that, then all together we will make america strong again. we will make america wealthy again.

"i do not know that they need to remarks oncamera" -- fox news' "the kelly file." the white house briefings have become somewhat of a spectacle paired a be there is a more effective way of having an adult
bloomberg politics reporter jennifer jacobs tweeted out mr. trump will do thank you rallies in orlando and mobile. holidayspend christmas in florida. lago tonight mara and most of last -- next week. a congresswoman's return to congress. she was elected back in november and immediately assumed office following the vacancy.
remind us, how you are returning to congress. left and ran for the senate, did not prevail in that election, and the congressman assumed my position in congressional district one. the congressman unfortunately passed from pancreatic cancer. it is one of the saddest things i have had to contend with. before he decided to with drop his name from the election process, it he asked me if i would run for my seat again, so that is what brings the fact. the people from the congressional district voted for me, and it is a very nice feeling to be supported, but at the same time can extremely bittersweet. >> why did you say yes to the late congressman? >> i think it is because he did
not want as his legacy to be a both democrats may have lost the seat, and more importantly, that he wanted someone to continue in congress who had a sense of what it was like to be here, so that the district would not lose anything and not lose a beat, and that was the reason. honoring his wish, and also being honored by it was the reason i did it. >> what about his legacy will you pick up and carry on, and what about your previous work that you want to pick up again and tried to fight for here in washington? >> he really wanted to continue in the armed services area. he was part of the guard, and the armed services committee is fourhing i served on for years have for myself, one of the issues i was very passionate about four i left the congress was what did it mean --
president obama said we were pivoting to the asia-pacific. thes critical, and we are pacific command's area of responsibility is 55% of the earth's service, and i tell tell everyone, do middleget what is in the of that -- hawaii. i believe we shared that, but for me, i'd was something i look forward. president obama said that the 21st century would be defined by asia-pacific come in and secretary of state hillary clinton said let's not forget, hawaii the gateway to the asia-pacific. that is something that has driven me come and is not only
for what we call the pivot, which people think is a military pivot, but it is not that. it is one of the greatest peace movements we have, and in addition it is diplomacy as well as the military presence in the area. >> since you left the house, what have you been doing? >> i was teaching with the wniversity of hawaii la school as well as the political science department, and i was asked to sit on various boards, and also my process of law. it was only a matter of 18 months, but during that time it was a wonderful experience to reunite people. there are so many different types of issues that what he was faced with. a lot of it related to our indigenous peoples, native was able too
keep abreast of the issues. it was not long enough to be a way to divest of issues. >> anything you would do differently now from your previous years in the house? >> one thing i would do differently as i feel that having been here for four years before is that you can hit the ground running and you also are able to look at things and know what to do. toell people i do not have -- i know where the bathrooms it is something you are familiar with the setting up and also having the relationships built. i tell people the matter what anybody says, congress is no different than any other local government or local legislature. whether this is a matter of relationships. onmay have partisan labels us, but the bottom line is the relationship of trust you build, and i am so fortunate that i made a lot of them and they are here. because of that, it is not that
we can get along? you know who you can rely on, and that is the greatest difference in how i can better serve the constituency. >> [indiscernible] >> i
did, and my mentor was senator daniel a new ea -- i in 2012.o passed away another is a senator i see all inouye hast senator taught me the best lessons. i did this past year the joint appointment as the daniel k. ye's visiting scholar, a joint effort with the library when i did a series of lectures. that is something i feel very passionate about, especially given the fact that we're coming
up in the 75th anniversary of the attack on pearl harbor. an result of that him which this series really brought out was the internment of japanese-americans. so having watched what he went through, heard what he went
through, and understanding he felt the most important thing was never forget who you represent and forget that the power structure swings back and forth. so you need to have those relationships because without them it is your constituency that really suffers. so that's what i walked away from a very great man who knew very well that to be bipartisan and to understand the needs of states, plusus never losing your concentration on your own state, was really what this was about. >> and a name known to our c-span watchers, congresswoman, thank you very much for your
time. >> thank you very much for having me. a little hot. -- aloha. >> the congresswoman will be joining her house colleagues 2115th covers convenes on january 3. live coverage of the house will be on c-span. we are live at trump tower budget for this heading up to meet with the president-elect. coming up in a few moments we will hear the final year and news conference with u.s. secretary general ban ki-moon, which will begin in a couple moments. we are watching trump tower.

[laughter] >> we have spent much time together in this role and in this building and all over the world the last 10 years. you are part of the united nations' family and i thank you in working together and working for the united nations. more than that, you have an
important job to do and informing the world about our work, where we make progress and when we fall short. i deeply believe in your mission. i have been saying you are connecting the world. the united nations and the world. and governments across the world , and cracking down on press freedom, i have worked hard to be your allies and defender. to fight for freedom of the press is everybody's fight. today to allow maximum time for questions. let me make three points. syria remains a gaping hole in the conscious. it is a synonym for help.
as i told the council three days ago, we have collectively failed the people of syria. prevail when it is accompanied by compassion, justice and accountability for the abominable crimes we have seen it. second, i am closely following the deteriorating situation in south sudan. it marks the third anniversary of the fighting. the country's leader have betrayed their people's trust and squandered a peace agreement. tens of thousands live dead. advisor has warned of the risk of genocide. we continue to push for access for life-saving relief and i
urge the security council to take more concerted action, including through punitive measures. third, we'll continue to support the momentum behind the paris agreement on climate change. climate action means jobs, growth, cleaner air and better health. leaders from across the globe and on every front understand ceos tom fortune 500 governors and mayors. the paris agreement on climate change is a precious achievement that we must support and nurture. there is no turning back. during my final days in office, i went to speak at the university of illinois in our
retail -- urbandale. forcan draw a straight line the principles that president lincoln defended to those that represent the best of spirit of the united states and the united nations. lincoln was a force for equality, integrity and reconciliation and we need that spirit today. tests.s been a decade of i've also seen collective action. a change in millions of lives for the better. sometimes, it may be international corporation as the path for more prosperity going forward. i will continue to appeal to world leaders to recognize and
21st century fax. -- facts. i wish to express my andeciation to my host city country. yesterday, and washington, d.c., i think president obama and vice biden and secretary rice. we had a close productive ties between the united states and the united nations. i have also recently met with mayor deblasio of new york and governor christie of new jersey and i will speak to governor cuomo from new york. the united states continues to grow strength and the new york metropolitan area.
thank you again for your friendship over the past decade and i wish you continued good substance. and engage more closely with the united nations so that you will and thank you very much. let me say one last thing. i am happy to take your questions. >> mr. secretary-general, thank you a dead for the last -- thank you again for the last press conference and for your cooperation with us. we really appreciated that. thank you for your freedom of the press. my last question to you is a simple one -- i have a soft one. in two weeks, you will face two options. right for president of south korea or -- which one of the
options will you choose and a clear answer now? thank you. >> the first part of your , of course, i will take more days to take rest. the last 10during years, frankly speaking, i have not been able to take any proper vacations and rest. it has been quite a tough 10 years. i have been working first to make sure that the united nations is it there when people need me and the united nations and for the second part of the question, i have been repeatedly days to still have 15 go. never fear. after 15 days, when jay were
refers comes, -- january 1 columns, then i will take some rest and go back to korea. as then i will try to meet as many people as possible, which may include political leaders and leaders of society's and my , consider seriously what could and what i should do for my country of korea. situation isthe very, very difficult. it is in turmoil. i understand the anxiety of the people about the future of their country as this is one of the biggest challenges that the korean people encountering.
i know that they do not want to lose the hard-earned to democracy and economies development was transformed korea to all global country. that is one of the prides that korean people have. -- and i alsoeen people want a new type of inclusive government that can help them overcome the challenges. the many issues of how to reconcile the differences and differencesng the many issues which we have
to think about. social integrity, and much more democratic institutions. at the same time, they all present great challenges for koreans and the korean government. i am coveted the korean people with their resilience and their democratic institutions, i am sure they will be able to overcome this difficulty soon. thank you. >> thank you very much, mr. secretary-general. you mentioned aleppo. i wonder if you could elaborate us what yourtell
expectations are since there seems to be some holdup in the evacuations today. and whether the u.n. has been involved in trying to promote this? that was a follow-up. my real question is you of talked about unfinished business and eu have mentioned syria. today, you have mentioned south sudan. what other unfinished business do you think should it be at the top of the agenda of your successor, mr. guterres? about the-moon: situation and aleppo and the is --ion in syria, this this has been a heartbreaking for me and for all of the people
who love peace and stability. the syrian people have been really suffering too much, too long the last five years. year, march of next year. more specifically about the situation in about aleppo, our operation which started yesterday and continued into the early morning today local time, thousands of people were able to leave aleppo. 194 patients of the , red cross presence and the united nations. they were brought to hospitals
in western aleppo and turkey. they were brought to hospitals nearby with the support of inanitarian health partners contact stan. -- kazakh a stand. kastan.a eastern aleppo was unfortunately , has been suspended today syrian of the authorities today. it very much regret that we had to stop this operation at this time. the united nations is engaging and mobilizing all possible engaging and manpower and urging all of the parties to take all necessary measures to resuming of this
process. hasu.n. partner in italy supplies which we can easily .eliver to needy people and again, i can tell you that united stationers stands ready -- united nations stands ready todo whatever that is needed rescue as many people as possible. you, because of this groups, by syrian armed we have to stop this. thank you. --ut unfinished business that is hard to pinpoint. tendencies that once violence happens, it seems the
syrian crisis has been continuing to six years now, the situation in yemen as south elsewhere,ali and all of the fires are still burning. the reason is global solidarity. believe thatho a all ofsolution can these issues. as i have repeatedly been saying, there is no such solutions, only concerted solutions could bring a sustainable, sustainable solution of the issues. i feel sorry that i have to unfulfilled issues
to my successes -- successors and member states. after the end of our day, we also have to understand that we needed to do much more with global solidarity and leadership . that is what i am urging the leaders to engage much, much more. thank you. >> thank you for giving me a chance to ask of the secretary-general. about then is situation because the secretary-general from east asia and the diplomat of south korea. ,ooking back at these 10 years
-- four saint the nuclear ambitions -- foreseen the and theambitions international area. south korea, japan, it has been up and down. it has been unstable. how is your view on those east asian situations during your tenure? futureectations for the shift of this region? thank you. general ki-moon: people often have been saying that the 21st century would be an era of asia-pacific. among asian-pacific, northeast asia has been regarded as
,owerful force and dynamic economically, politically and socially. that means that that china, and japan and korea and these and have beeners manynded even envied by people around the world, many countries around the world for their dynamic forces. i am concerned that the relationship among and between the countries in northeast asia beenlso in asia have not smooth. in all of this, there is a very serious, significant concerns about the democratic people's republic of korea. especially the continuing
efforts to develop nuclear weapons and develop missile technology. the security council has been seriously engaged to stem this kind of north korean activities. the security council has met 10 times this year only. it is very rare that the security council engages so on anytly, so heavily single subject. already fiveen sanctions of resolutions, including more recently, which was taken on november 30. all of this kind of sanctions, applications to northeast
asian region and there has been some differences of opinion and positions on how to advance all of this, particularly in north korea nuclear issues. korea and thend united states and russia, all of these countries surrounding northeast asia have not been -- have not been positioned in their positions. continuing stabilities and political this harmonies among these countries, the leaders of northeast asia will continue to worktogether and try to
out differences of opinions. again to come to an international community and abide by all of the international norms, including the security council resolutions and many resolutions. therefore, they can be a part of the society. this is what i see the hope as the secretary-general. >> thank you. joseph klein of canada free press. mr. secretary-general, whatever you decide to do, i wish you all of the best. given the prominence in the news lately of cyberattacks of this political institutions and private enterprises, what concrete steps would you recommend the united nations take to galvanize member state
support for an effective u.n. convention with rules to reflect the normalize and help build member states for their critical infrastructures from cyberattacks? thank you. -- --l ki-moon: we are enjoying all of this dramatic development of technology, especially communications technology. at the same time, we are concerned about using this technology for other negative properties, cyberattacks. ins must be prevented concerted efforts by the international community. i hope the united nations and veryies will look into
seriously and try to have international conventions so suchwe can prevent this privacy's of technologies. this is my vision. agencies orpecific departments, we will have to discuss this matter with the general assembly. secretary-general, a question of going back to aleppo. you have called aleppo a synonym for help. sudan -- howthat would you assess the status of the concept of responsibility to protect? is it on life support? is it moving toward death? 2005 duringoon: in
a special summer meeting, world consensusve agreed, a on responsibility to protect. as secretary-general, even while i was campaigning, i was pledging to the member states that i would try to translate in -- translateion this into action in application toward addressing all of these issues. unfortunately, member states have shown some stepping back from their agreement on a responsibility to protect. that is why the united nations international community has not been able to fully and effectively address many issues, particularly we fully support
the sovereign nations. every country, small or big, has a sovereign right and utility. when it comes to a situation willing leaders are not to defend their own people, international communities should be able to intervene with necessary resources. that has been done at the time crisis.ving this libyan i think the member states have not been given the full support and full engagement and implementing this very important responsibility to protect the principles.
again, this is one of the a goodhed business, web framework, we have an agreement. why are we not using this? these principles should be freely used so we can handle and address the many conflict issues. we fully support this sovereignty. when the country is simply not then theot willing to international community has a responsibility to protect those people. >> isn't there anything you would recommend for the international community to do at this point in regards to syria? general ki-moon: i have been think threei 3 -- i of the world's best diplomats, .ncluding my predecessor kofi
it is not in issue of facilitators. of lack ofsue solidarity. lack of compassion. , just speaking ,ery narrow personal interests that has been killing hundreds of thousands of people now that we have to reject in the name of humanity. how come this issue has been so long without being resolved? , the syrian people, they should be united. unfortunately, they have been divided completely. the regional powers, these powers they have been supporting
, the government side and the other groups side. the united nations security council has also been divided. individuals and three important areas and institutions have provided a perfect storm for take a firmists root among the people. taking advantage of all of the grievances of the people and the leaders. > thank you, mr. secretary-general. cover and youre are the past five years in new york and overseas. --lecting on your 10 year tenure, in hindsight, what was your moments of pride and your
top moments of regret? i understand there are ups and downs of we have worked -- as we have witnessed. thank you. general ki-moon: it is not good timing for me to talk about what or what hasieved been a good moment for me. i am more of the regrettable speaking.ndly since you have raised this while webelieve that ofnk we are living in an era turmoil and challenges, the , importante shown guidelines and visions by sustainable development to goals and an agenda with goals which
