[applause] election is based on they might as will cancel it because we won. [applause]
our opponents have 400, 500 and they say how many people they had, oh, and a crowd, like this group right here, that's what they had. this is a big, beautiful crowd. thanks pensacola, florida. we love it. i love the state of florida. we love the panhandle. did we do well in the panhandle? [applause] but nobody like you to build it back in a little while, you want even know there was that vicious hurricane. that was a bad one, wasn't it? in thisit a little bit state, but it is happening fast, it is going good, rick scott, everybody working hard, a lot of
progress, but that was a bad one. it was like a giant tornado, that wasn't a hurricane, that was like a 50-mile wide tornado. incredible. i visited, and the houses were gone, but the foundations were gone, the houses and the foundations. nobody has ever seen anything like that. but you are great people, and we are with you 1000%, you know that. you know that. [applause] great people. people three days, the of florida are going to elect tok scott and ron desantis, protect your jobs, defend your borders and continue making america great again. [applause] we are just days away from one of the most important elections of our lives. this is a big one.
this is a very important election. has anybody not voted? raise your hands. not that bad, but you are going to vote, right? [applause] you are going to vote. bad, though. that's probably 10% didn't vote or eat and i have no doubt you are going to vote for desantis and rick scott. we need them. we need them. no games. this is very serious stuff. this election will decide whether we build on the extraordinary prosperity we have achieved for our nation, or whether we let the radical democrats, and that's what they have become, they have become , in rick'socrats case, he is going against somebody that is falling asleep. and in ron's case, he is going
aainst somebody that has got lot of energy, but he runs one of the worst, one of the biggest-problem cities anywhere in the country. he is not doing the job. you don't want to have him running florida, that i can tell you. [crowd boos] you're going to take control of congress. they want to give away our country, they want to knock it down with a giant wrecking ball, to our economy and to our future. and by the way, did you see those job numbers, did you see what is going on, right? [applause] numbers. awfully good it's very interesting, some of the fake news was saying, i was watching, why doesn't he talk about the economy? why does he talk about immigration? with thes coming up caravan, why does he talk about
the caravan when he has got maybe the best numbers on the economy in the history of our country? and we can talk about the economy, but the fact is we know how well we are doing with the economy, and we have to solve problems. i'm looking to solve problems, not talk into the fact that we have done a great job. and we have done a great job, on the economy. we now have the hottest economy anywhere on earth, we have the best economy the united states has ever had. wethe last month alone, added another 250,000 jobs. think of that. and that is despite the hurricanes. hurricanes devastate your monthly and your quarterly numbers. despite250,000 jobs,
your hurricane. ,f you had those numbers back which i won't bother doing, to the 250,000 go's really wild. but we are not going to do that. we are going to take it the way it is, and it is really something. we have added 4.5 million new jobs since the election. nobody would have thought that is possible, including those people back there. nobody would have said that was possible. nobody would have said, if i said on the campaign that we would add 4.5 million new jobs, they would say terrible things. performing, what we said was great but what we are doing is far greater, so that is the way we want to keep it read the unemployment rate -- keep it. the unemployment rate just fell to the lowest level in over 50 years. [applause]
more americans are working today than ever before. think of that, in the history of our country, today, more are working than ever before in the history of our country. that is a good sound bite. that's awfully tough to beat somebody when i'm debating one of the far-left candidates the democrats will produce. you have to them running against two of them running against our two friends. what are they going to say? it's going to hopefully be a very easy debate. but we always debate three people, it will be one, it will be three, the person plus the media against me. so that makes a little tougher. that makes a little bit tougher. remember the way they treated hillary?
oh, madam secretary, what did you have for breakfast? did you enjoy it? ,nd as far as you mr. trump bah, bah. we have three people on that stage, hispanic american, african american, asian american reached the of all lowest level in the history of our country. republicans passed a massive tax we for working families, and will soon follow it up with another 10% tax cut for the middle class. we are working on that now. we are taking care of our veterans and rebuilding might like wetary haven't done in 50 years. [applause]
and everything is made in the usa. it's a good thing. are building our military bigger, stronger, better than ever before, and we hope we never have to use it. but you know when you don't have to use it? when you are a bigger, better, stronger. then you don't have to use it. when you are weak, you have to use it. when you are strong, you don't have to use it. under republican leadership, america is respected again and america is winning again, because we are finally putting america first. [applause] [crowd chanting] >> usa. usa. usa.
usa. president trump: could the cameras pan out and show this crowd? it would really be nice. it would really be nice. would you do that? they never like to do that , folks. they never like to do that. they won't turn that camera. they never like to turn the camera. they never do. unless there is a little problem, in which case that camera spins in 15 different directions. and turn.a can bend that's called great equipment. they never show the crowd. the people here the crowd, they hear the crowd. but people hear the crowd, they hear the crowd. [applause] big, florida state
or florida football game. it sounds like a stadium on television. -- in many ways, it sounds better, but i wish they which of the crowds. nobody has any clue, but i guess we do, we all do. i looked at the crowd size of some of the people we are competing against. you don't want to be involved with that. one thing, you always have plenty of room. that's good. but if crying chuck schumer, , or the legendary genius maxine waters, if they they will try to wipe away all that we have done, and at the same time double and triple and quadruple your taxes. and we are not going to let it
happen. they will restore the job-killing regulations. i cut more regulations in less than two years than any other administration has cut in four eight years, or in one case, more than eight years. we have cut more. remember i said we want to cut two for every one, right now it is trending at 22 41. we cut one regulation and we take out 22. a highway that would take 20 years to get approved, would go through a, you believe it, environmental, it would take 20 years, 18 years, 15 years, 22 years. we have it down to two and a half years. we want to get it down to one
and a half, maybe even one. and we may reject it if it is not good, but you are not going to the vote an entire lifetime and then find out at the end it is not going to be approved, and it is going to end up costing 10 times or 30 times more, which we have many examples, that it was supposed to. so we have a down really good. we are going to get it down even lower. and again, if it doesn't pass environmental standards, if we do anything to interfere with our clean air or our crystal-clean, beautiful water, we want to prove it. it's not going to be approved. but we are going to know. we don't have to take 20 years to tell you that, do we? they will take away your health care and they will make it impossible. they will impose a socialism on the state of florida. [crowd boos] welcome to venezuela.
well eraseall america's borders. we have to have a border if we are going to have a great country. we have to have a great, strong, powerful border. [applause] [crowd chanting] >> build that wall. build that wall. build that wall. build that wall. build that wall. president trump: we are building the wall. it's started. got 1.6 billion, we got another 1.6 billion but it want to build it all at one time. and i'm good at building. and when you look at that care event coming up -- look at that caravan coming up, that's not
for us, folks. ourant people to come to strong borders, but they have to come in legally, they have to come in absolutely through a process, and they have to come , so they canrit help all of the companies that are moving back to florida and back to the united states. we have car companies, we have car companies moving into michigan and ohio and pennsylvania and south carolina and north carolina and florida, by the way. but we have many, many companies to theback, and i speak top people and i speak to the presidents of countries and the prime minister's of countries, and they all want to be where the action is, and we are where the action is now. didn't used to be, even two years ago, not a long time, it was going in reverse, it was going down. regulations were killing our country, high taxes, all the
other things. you want to pay high taxes, you ought to vote for the mayor of tallahassee, florida, because you will pay high taxes. [crowd boos] and you will destroy this state that i love and that i live in. i am here all the time. this is my home also. great state. [applause] and rick scott has done a great job. he has done a great job. a vote for any democrat this november is to really vote to put extreme, far-left politicians in charge of and to destroy your your incomes, undermine your safety and put illegal aliens before american citizens. a vote for republicans is a vote
to protect your families, to keep america's economic boom going. it ahead, and it is going, it is going better than ever before. and don't forget, we are now normalizing interest rates. president obama, we were heading south and he had zero interest. to do thingsasy with zero interest, but we are normalizing rates. and if you think about it, just take a look at, are they ok, darling, take your time. we got to be with our people. we got to be with our people. is she ok? take your time. do you have a doctor? dr., please. it is what? yeah, move that partition.

they have suppression where you don't bother to go out and vote, but that did not happen with us two years ago, right? one of the highest rated nights in political television. a lot of great things happened, but most importantly, what we did is we won and we won for incredible people in this country. they got what they wanted, and we are producing, and we did it together. i didn't do it. we all did it together. this tuesday, the people of florida are going to head to the polls to elect an incredible new senator. as your governor, rick scott cut your taxes massively by billions of dollars -- think of it. removed job-killing regulations and created more than 1.6 million new florida jobs.
one of the hottest places anywhere on earth -- that's what he created. you know what? you was the mayor of tallahassee -- take a look at the bad job he is doing in tallahassee. you put him here, he will destroy florida and one year or two years if he is doing a good job. a vote for rick's far left opponent, senator rick nelson, who i've never seen, of the president of the united states. we have 100 senators. 49 democrats. i never see him. the only when i see him is cryin' chuck. he represents everyone. bill never calls and says i would like to get something for florida. the dam -- we're doing that because rick scott was driving us all crazy in the white house. [applause] us crazy.ving
he would call again and say, "it's rick scott." sm is a i give him that, he wants other things. honestly, isn't that what you want? i have been here on most two of years and never gotten a call from senator bill nelson, saying can you help me? i will tell you what he is good at -- and i should not say this, -- with okeechobee, i did it for him because he was just back and forth, sending me plans, just like a construction .ob, right, and it's a big deal lake okeechobee, and he's calling, and all of a sudden, bill nelson heard about it, and he had a news conference to announce okeechobee dam, and he had nothing to do with it. i won't say that is stupid, but i will say this -- i don't see
bill nelson for five and a half years, and around election time, he's on television every night, but for five and a half years, you don't see him, so a vote for nelson is just a vote for chuck schumer, the majority leader. how about this one? diannevote really for feinstein. she did a great job. she did a great job on judiciary with her obviously -- obvious leaks. remember that? remember that? senator cornyn of texas, did you leak? uh -- there was body length -- the worst body language we've ever seen. what a mess. by the way, did you see today, right, now justice kavanagh,
then judge kavanaugh, great -- it started a whole movement, i mean, what they did to that man, and today, and accuser who said she was raped -- thinkshe was lying of that. she was lying. she never met him. it didn't happen. can you imagine? and the democrats were so horrible on everyone. so horrible. by the way, what about the others? when are they going to say things like she did? she did not even know why she said it, and they tried to destroy a great man with a great incredible family, a scholar, a intellect. she said it never happened. can you imagine if this man who
people predicted 10 years ago would be a supreme court justice sunday because of his intellect -- can you imagine if he did not get the job because of that and then you find this out later on? but she admitted nothing happened, she never met him. this is disgraceful. the democrats -- bill nelson voted against neil gorsuch and he voted against brett kavanaugh . bill nelson voted against your tax cuts, and he voted against your regulation cuts. nelson voted for deadly sanctuary cities, voted against kate's law, and joined every other sin a democrat in supporting open border legislation sponsored by dianne feinstein. a senator who shares
your values and who will always have your back, and i will tell you, this is a man who loves the people of florida. he works as hard as anybody i have ever seen. we all work hard. i work hard. this guy -- he is doing -- he is a producer. he has done an incredible job as your governor. rick scott, please come forward. [applause] >> good evening, pensacola. [applause] now, is it exciting to have the president here? [applause] is he taking care of us? [applause] yes! he has been president for less
than sheet of years. let me tell you what he has already done. we had two horrible hurricanes. every day, he called me. "what do you need?" everything i asked for, he came through. [applause] everything. he talked about lake okeechobee. barack obama and bill nelson -- [crowd boos] to fund the dike at lake okeechobee. it's a their project. you know how much money i got? nothing. i did harass the president a little bit about it. i called him a lot. he would invite me to the office, i said how are we doing on lake okeechobee, but he came through. we have all the funding, so all of it will get done in the next
four years. thank you, mr. president. let's think about hurricane michael. it was horrible. trouble.eople in this is the greatest country in the world. [applause] people came from all over the country. they did not say are you a republican or democrat, they say what do you need? we will do it for you. place in theest world. this is what this president is doing, bringing us together to do good things. i'm going to go to washington to have a can-do attitude to represent you wholeheartedly to
make sure our federal government takes care of us when we need them. [applause] y'all know, i grew up in public housing. i did not know my dad. my family was very poor, but i was born with a silver spoon in my mouth. you know why? i grew up in this country where anything is possible. [applause] i forgot one point. i'm nelson asked me why doing things with the president. hat am i supposed to do? when we are in need, shouldn't i talked to the president? this is a massive storm, shouldn't we get local, federal, ? d state resources yes, so we have a big choice. here's your choice -- over here is bill nelson. he wants to grow washington.
what we want to do is grow our economy, not the washington economy. [applause] bill nelson, he wants to raise your taxes. we want lower taxes. less money in his pockets, more money in our pockets. that is what this president has done. tax cuts, tax cuts, tax cuts. [applause] mom taught me to be a worker. bill nelson is not a worker. he doesn't show up to work. onave a very specific plan how we can improve this country. it starts with term limits. you know who ought to be term limited first? bill nelson. [applause] have sent so many
big talkers to washington. we need to send more doers to washington, like president trump, and i will do it. now, here is your job -- vote. the only thing that matters between now and tuesday at 7:00 p.m. is to get every vote out. if we do, we will have the greatest win ever, besides 2016 may be. [applause] so, if you voted, make sure your family, your friends get to the polls and vote. we need to get every vote in we can so we can all go to d.c. and help president trump turn this economy around, make this the greatest nation in the world to grow up in. god bless america. good night.
[applause] >> usa! usa! usa! usa! remember what i told you. almost two years as president, i never received one call from senator nelson to help out the people of florida. not a call. not a call. this man, all the time. that's got to mean something. to me, that means a lot. maybe almost everything. the people of florida are going to choose a governor to continue the florida jobs boom and the by rickboom started scott. ron desantis -- i've known him a .ong time i mean, i don't want to talk about his education, but he's harvard, he's yale, good student, which is only telling
you he's smart, but i know a lot of smart guys that don't have what it takes. he does. he's a smart guy, a great guy, and he will keep your jobs going way up and keep your taxes going way down. the men and00% with women of law enforcement, like we all do. and ron is running against, really, a radical socialist named andrew gillum -- [crowd boos] who will not do good things for florida. um will tax and regulate your jobs into oblivion. he wants to abolish ice, can you believe that? they never miss a day in the office, but they are strong people, great patriots, and they take care of us.

[applause] so here's the mission -- we have to protect florida's future. we need to protect the economic momentum we have under governor scott and president trump. i will keep it going and build on that success and we will have success like we have never had before, but you've got to have good leadership, and you have to keep taxes low. andrew gillum -- his great idea is to raise tax 20%.
you your jobs. that will cause businesses to leave florida, and it will stop the flow of investment into our state. it would be a historic mistake, but here's the thing -- that tax increase is just the increase he is willing to admit to you. this is the guy who has supported higher taxes his entire career, including higher property taxes as mayor of tallahassee. he wants to repeal the trump tax cuts, which would mean higher federal taxes for you, and a nonpartisan think tank analyzed all the spending he is promising, and they say the only way you can pay for it is either to raise the sales tax to 38% -- ] rowd boos or to impose an income tax in florida. [crowd boos] governor, we will not
raise taxes and we will never impose an income tax. we have such a good opportunity to bring investment to florida -- mr. president, i want you to know, when i become governor, i'm going to try to bring the trump organization to palm beach. we can save you a lot of money. 'swill protect florida communities by standing with the men and women of law enforcement. i'm not going to attack them like andrew gillum has. i'm not going to sign an anti-police pledge. no wonder tallahassee has the highest crime in florida. no wonder they had the most murders in their history last year. bad leadership and that judgment. he wants to abolish ice and have sanctuary cities. no. i can tell you this -- when i'm governor, we will not have sanctuary cities and florida will never be a sanctuary state. [applause]
appoint solid constitutionalists to our state supreme court, similarly to how the president has appointed these great people to our federal court. judiciald -- end activism in florida one month into my term, so we will do that. i will defend your rights, including your second amendment rights. [applause] gillum has laid out criteria what he would ban. the fact is, he would and -- ban the vast majority of handguns state ofguns in the florida. he is hostile to the second amendment. he will not protect your rights, and he cannot be trusted to be governor. i will also protect your right to pursue the type of health care you want.
supports bernie sanders' government-run medicare for all. at first, butnice then you read the fine print. it abolishes medicare for seniors. medicare advantage -- gone. if you get insurance through your job, the government will take away from you. you will get dumped on a government-run single-payer plan. everybody with health insurance would lose it and get put on the single-payer except the v.a. and the indian health service, so i guess that means that elizabeth chance of a one/1000% keeping health care, but here's the deal -- government has no right to take away the health benefits that you have earned, and andrew gillum wants to do that. that is wrong and we won't let it happen. it is an honor for me to be here. i want to thank the president for coming to florida. [applause]
we just have a few days left, and what you need to do is you need to make your voice heard. you will be the determining factor in this election. are we going to build on the success florida has had, or are we going to put a far left bernie sanders anti-law-enforcement tax raising radical in the governor's mansion? i don't think so. so, vote, and get your friends to vote, and when you do, you will be doing your part to protect florida's future for a generation, and is your governor, i promise you, i will fight the good fight. i will finish the race, and i will keep the faith on behalf of the people of florida. thank you. god bless you. thank you so much. >> thank you very much, ron. there won't be any sleeping for
ron. no sleeping. you worked and worked. i will say this -- andrew gillum is not equipped to be your governor. it's not for him. not for him. he knows it. he won't say it, but he knows it. we got to keep this state great. you're going to make an even greater, ron. will be problems like you cannot imagine. he's not equipped to be your governor. if democrats come to power on tuesday, one of their biggest project will be a socialist takeover of the american health care system. we cannot have it. they will destroy what we are building and what we are going to build. the democrats' plan would obliterate medicare and eliminate medicare advantage for nearly 2 million florida seniors who depend on it. the democrat plan is especially unfair to hispanic americans. one out of every two hispanic seniors is enrolled in medicare
advantage. republicans will protect medicare for your great, great whoors that we love, and, by the way, paid for it, and republicans will always, just like i said, social security -- did not touch it, right? during the debate, they all wanted to do a lot of bad things, and i said no way. we will get the money from making good deals on trade. we got plenty of money coming in now. those trade deals are phenomenal. we took them from being horrible to phenomenal, but we will always protect patients with pre-existing conditions, always. always. democrats plan to destroy health care also includes raiding medicare to fund illegal immigrants. speak, democrats are
openly encouraging millions of ourgal aliens to break laws, violate our sovereignty, overrun our borders, and destroy our nation in so many ways, and we cannot let it happen. invite caravan after caravan, and it is a little suspicious how those caravans are starting, isn't it? and i think it's a good thing may be that they did it, did they energize our base for what? -- or what? [applause] they want to sign up the illegal immigrants for free health care, free welfare, free education, and guess what they really want? they want them voting because they believe they will be voting for democrats every single time. the democrats only believe in
defending the borders of other countries. they don't believe in defending our country. open borders, come on in. means crime is what it means. republicans believe we must defend our borders. we have to defend our country, families,t defend our our communities, and our great american way of life. [applause] reasons you have so many people wanting to come to our country -- i don't know if you saw the report, but there are a lot of bad people -- we got the reports from their country. we got the reports from mexico. you have a lot of bad people coming into our country, and we are not letting them come into our country.
[applause] but one of the reasons they are we havep is because created such an incredible success. we have become so successful soh the best job numbers in many years and everything else that people want to come in and take it, but they have to come in legally. there's nothing we can do about it. there's nothing we can do. they have to come in legally. they have to come in through merit. in the100% of heroin united states enters through our southern borders, along with 90% of the cocaine, the majority of and a substantial portion of the ultra lethal fentanyl, which is killing our youth and destroying our people. these drugs killed last year
over 70,000 americans. last year alone -- listen to these numbers, they are incredible -- you know they want to get rid of ice, right? they want to get rid of ice. last year alone, ice officers arrested more than -- listen to aliens.127,000 criminal these are people with criminal records. these are people that have criminal records here and in the come.y's from which they assaults, 12,000 sex crimes, and 100 -- listen to this -- 1800 murders. 1008 hundred murders, ok? think of it. but if democrats get elected, they will do everything in their power to dismantle ice.
they want to turn america into a giant sanctuary city for violent predators and ruthless gang members like ms 13. no thank you, you can have them. by the way, we have taken out thousands and thousands of gang members from ms 13, and we got them the hell out of our country . [applause] clinker.them in the they are bad. they are bad ones. republicans will always stand ice, theheroes of border patrol, law enforcement. we will throw the gang members out. we will throw the predators out. they will be in jail or we are bringing them back where they came from. they are out. if you want to protect criminal aliens, you should vote them across -- you should vote democrat. if you want to protect
law-abiding americans, vote republican. it's really very simple. this election is about safety, and it's about prosperity. very simple. for years, you watched as we let foreign countries plunder our wealth, shutter our factories, and steal our jobs, but those days, folks, are over. you've been seeing that. they are over. they are over. look what we've done with other countries. they are respecting us again. our country is respected again. doesn't it feel different? really? you.cting we've added 500,000 manufacturing jobs since the election, and that's going to go to 600,000 there he shortly. 600,000 manufacturing jobs. remember, the previous theyistration that -- said
are not coming back. you would need a magic wand. we found the magic wand. last month alone, we added 32,000 manufacturing jobs one month, and that's 1000 new manufacturing jobs every single day of the month. i recently announced that we are replacing the horrible, horrible nafta deal -- one of the worst trade deals in the history of man or womankind, -- with an incredible brand-new u.s.-mexico-canada agreement. we got it done. [applause] we got it done. a, right? -- usmc ♪ y-m-c-a if you have difficulty remembering it, just think of the song, ymca.
usmca. we are cracking down on abusive trade practices, and they want to make a deal. put tariffs on $250 billion worth of different things they send our country, and inflation is staying low. isn't that amazing? they want to make a deal. every day is promises made, promises kept. we taken bold action to reduce the price of prescription drugs. when you see what is going to happen there -- and i've been saying it. i called pfizer, i called novartis a month ago. they raised their drug prices very substantially, and there was no reason to do that. i called them, the heads of both companies, and others, and i said you cannot do this. you cannot raise your drug .rices it's not happening like that. they immediately reduced their
drug prices to the same price that was the day before. and i respected them for doing that, and i appreciated that they did it. pfizer, novartis, others -- they did it. i really realized how powerful this position is. can you imagine? never happened before. yet, with their old president, he could use the same words, and they would not do it. that's the way it works, folks. that's the way it works, but we will be reducing drug prices very soon. he will see. the secretary has done a fantastic job to help critical pick -- critical patients get life-saving treatment. .e passed right to try we have the greatest pipeline of drugs and cures and everything. we were not allowed to use it. now we are allowed to use that somebody is very sick, terminally ill, seriously
ill. they won't have to go to asia, europe, africa. they go all over the world looking for hope, and we have the greatest medical people in the world right here, greatest , andcompanies in the world now, they signed a paper, they take it, and you know what? tremendous results. this was three months ago. tremendous results. passed by congress, signed by me . for years and years they wanted to do it. we got it done. bill to the largest fight the opioid epidemic last month, largest in the history of our country. $6 billion. ,e passed veterans choice giving our great veterans the right to see a private doctor when they have to wait online for a week, a month, two months, three months.
they would be online with a very minor problem. sometimes they would not be able to see a doctor for so long that by the time they got treatment, they would be terminally ill. think of that. just think of that. now you go out, you see a doctor immediately. we pay for the doctor. we take care of our veterans. frankly, i don't care about it taking -- compared to taking care of our veterans, but it's also less expensive, if you can believe that. much less expensive. that's another one. they wanted to pass in for four decades. they could never get it passed. i got it passed. here's another one they could not get passed for decades -- ba accountability, in order to ensure anyone who mistreats our veterans, they have to be accountable, meaning you're fired or worse. you're fired. we got it done.
many decades they been trying to get it done. for those who think that should be easy, you got to fight the unions and you've got to fight civil service. you've got to fight everybody. not easy. over four decades they've been trying to get it. we secured 700 million dollars and $716 billion to fully rebuilt the united states military, and we gave our great warriors -- and you have some of them right here -- and i know you don't want this. i know you are willing to give , but regardless, we're willing to give it back. we gave the largest pay raise in more than a decade. take it. you deserve it. take it. at my direction, the pentagon is now working to create the sixth branch of the american armed forces called the space force.
[applause] that's where it's at. that's where it's at. i'm not just talking about sending rockets to the moon, sending rockets to mars. we are doing all that stuff, but i mean that is where it's at militarily. satellites and so many other things. and i with drew, as ron said, the united states from the horrible one cited iran nuclear catastrophe deal, and we just announced that we are putting in place the toughest sanctions , andon the iranian regime we havelso said, recognized the capital of israel and opened the american embassy in jerusalem. [applause] and we opened it already.
they wanted to build a new building for probably $1.1 billion for 4 billion -- 1.1 billion dollars which probably would have been 4 billion dollars. how do you build a one-story building for $1 billion? any builders in the house? they will do it for $60,000, and it would have been better. we converted the building we had for $500,000. we already had it. we already had it. together, we've made extraordinary progress, and we are just getting started, but the democrats want to turn back the clock, throw america into reverse -- not going to happen -- and return power to a corrupt, selfish ruling class that only looks out for themselves. you know that. that's why this movement started. that's why it started. think of what we've done. the most successful political
movement in the history of our country, and i can say that, and they never challenge it. what's to challenge? [applause] ? at's to challenge there's nobody -- look at the crowds even now. the energy is -- i don't know, it seems like the energy is even greater. [applause] i don't know. but i need you to vote for a republican house and a republican senate. it's very fragile. it can be taken away, all of the things -- the tax cuts, the canlation cuts -- so we continue this incredible movement, we have to continue this great, great movement. we've made so much progress. remember, it's make america great again, but our new theme in another year, i say -- could probably do it now because we
are so ahead of schedule -- is keep america great. keep america great. [applause] with your support, we will keep on cutting your taxes, reducing your regulations, and raising your income. we will protect medicare, and we will protect your social security. [applause] defend your right to free speech, religious liberty, and we will continue to confirm judges who will interpret the constitution as written. [applause] will fully secure the border. we will passed kates law. we will stop sanctuary cities, we will end the visa lottery, and we will keep the criminals, drug dealers, the hell out of
our country. we don't want them. we don't want them. [applause] millions of citizens from dependence to independence and from poverty to prosperity, which is the way it is supposed to be. for years, you watched as your leaders apologized for america. that's what they did. they apologized for us. your greatized for country. now you have a president who is standing up for america. we're standing up for your values. we are standing up for florida, and we are probably standing up for our great national anthem. [applause]

build america into the greatest nation and the most powerful military the world has ever seen. this state was built by farmers and factory workers and soldiers themselves, and by those brave americans who opened the first naval air station at pensacola. these courageous americans did shed their blood, sweat, or tears, so we could sit at home while others tried to erase their legacy, teardown down our history, and destroy our very proud american heritage. for the sake of our freedom and for the sake of our children, we are going to work, we are going to fight, and we are going to win, win, win. [applause] we will not bend. we will not break.
