what a voice. thank you, dan. he did it quickly. some guys are in congress for years and they don't have your 40 voice. thank you. and i don't mean the voice speaking, i mean people listening to what you say. thank you very much. great job. and by the way, i have to say, while dan is here, what kind of great support did we have from those incredible congressmen and women this week? they got up, and they spoke, and they were fantastic. i guess the vote was like 196 or something to nothing. we had three democrats on our side, so we have to say it was a bipartisan vote. you call that bipartisan. hey. no republican went to their side. we had like 195, dan, to nothing or something like that. 195 to nothing, you don't see that. you don't see that. what a great group of people. come here, dan, what do you have? [cheering and applause]

11:16 pm
dan. i will save that, dan. well we had a lot of no votes, , and the senate now -- how about that deal? where they had nothing. there is no crime, there is no nothing, how do you impeach, you had no crime, people said there is no crime. in fact there is no impeachment, their own lawyers said there is no impeachment -- what are we doing here? the world is watching. crazy nancy, she is crazy. no, no. so now she says -- she has no case. she has no case, so let's not submit it. that is good, right? that is good. but you know what, it is so unfair, it is so unfair. she has no case -- did they look bad? they got up the same thing, the constitution. they are violating the constitution, totally. totally. they are violating the constitution. in the meantime, our polls have gone through the roof. [cheering and applause]
11:17 pm
pres. trump: and the senate, like the house, we have done great work together, you know, today with judges, last week we did 13 judges, 13. we are going to talk about it in a second. but we are doing like no other party has done in the first -- think of it, less than three years, and what we have done. last night was so exciting with the national defense bill, the greatest military ever, ever. new jets, new ships, new rockets, new missiles, all made in the usa, folks. made in the usa. [cheering and applause] pres. trump: but as we near the end of another extraordinary year, we celebrate america's incredible comeback, and that is what it is. our country was down and depleted. our military was so down and
11:18 pm
so out. i mean, i can tell you stories, but i won't tell you because it is embarrassing to tell you, but we have rebuilt it, $2.5 trillion. somebody said, well that is bad for the budget, but let me tell you, i am a big budget person, but when it comes to the military, there is no budget. there is no budget. [cheering and applause] pres. trump: there is no budget when it comes to the military. somebody says, well they are , doing really badly in the war, we don't have enough ammunition, but we are losing the war, but you know we had a good budget , last year. no. you have people who think that way. it doesn't work that way. we are so powerful militarily now, especially at the end of another six months. this stuff is all pouring in. brand-new jets, the most incredible stealth jets, the f-35 fighters, the f-18s, the f-16s, nobody has ever seen what we are doing. ships, submarines, i won't even
11:19 pm
tell you about the submarine -- the most powerful ships in the world. the most powerful boats, the most powerful weapon in the world is our submarines, and they are under construction, and we just hope to god that we never have to use them. [cheering and applause] we hope that we never have to use them. and we do. the way we won't have to use them is if the power is so great that nobody is ever going to say gee -- we learned that a long time ago. we learned that in high school. we learned that in grade school. but we will have and we have now overwhelming power and just hope we don't have to use it. our economy is booming, wages are rising, crime is falling, poverty is plummeting, and our nation is stronger and more powerful right now than it has ever been before. [cheering and applause]
11:20 pm
pres. trump: and we have achieved more in this month alone than almost any president has achieved in eight years in office, if you think about it. if you think what we have done. [cheering and applause] pres. trump: we reached an agreement to replace one of the worst trade deals in the history of the world, nafta. remember when all of the companies were leaving our country, charlie, and they were going to mexico and a couple of other places, frankly, but they were leaving. leaving us with no jobs, no income, empty factories all over the country. you go to ohio, go to new england. you saw that, it was empty, everything was gone. nafta. remember a certain man said it was that sucking feeling. you know what that -- you remember who said that? right. he is a student. it was ross perot. he said it has got that sucking feeling, all of our jobs, all of our companies were being sucked
11:21 pm
out of our country. we are replacing nafta and the brand-newster with a usmca, which is an incredible deal. except the globalists. you have some globalists that don't like it because they think it is ok when a company closes its doors and opens up in mexico or another country. they think it is ok as long as there is a company someplace. i say no, no, i want the companies to build our products here. deals --n't need those i mean, these are people, they are called -- anybody here a globalists? we tried that. not too many globalists in this room. i think frankly once they understand what is happening, there aren't too many globalists. the only ones that would be opposed, and i think nafta passed by a number that was incredible. there were only 41 votes against it.
11:22 pm
for a trade deal that was incredible. we have a trade deal. the farmers are going to do so well. what it does -- i asked for one thing, i said i want to make it very prohibitively expensive for a company to leave our country, go to another country -- let me be nice -- go to another country. you know, 32% of our car industry has gone to mexico over the last 20 years. 32%. it was heading there. they would have all of it. that is about the end, folks. that is about the end. we are saving the american auto industry, creating, and very importantly, creating a countless number of american jobs, and opening vast new opportunities for america's farmers, growers, and manufacturers. [applause and cheers] pres. trump: for years, politicians came and went, promising to replace nafta -- you remember that, all the time. it is probably why i am here. probably. i was honored 10 years ago, long
11:23 pm
before i thought of coming down that beautiful escalator with our great future first lady. [applause and cheers] pres. trump: but nafta is probably -- i used to go, i used to say, i was honored in michigan, i just left michigan. [applause and cheers] pres. trump: we just had -- they had me man of the year in michigan. and i made a speech and a lot of people were shaken up. they said why are you allowing this to happen? mexico is taking all of your car companies and so is canada, canada sells us tremendous numbers of cars that they didn't used to sell. why are you letting this happen? it was a rough speech, but the truth is that was the way i felt. and i have never changed. i have never changed. the new usmca stops there. but the politicians, they talked about it, but they never did anything about it, absolutely nothing, and they just kept selling america out. but where other administrations failed, we delivered, so i guess
11:24 pm
we had, don, 385 or something like that to 41, something like that -- there is laura ingraham, how good is laura? come here, laura. [cheering and applause] pres. trump: cnn, all of the cameras just turned off, that is ok. they don't want to promote laura -- she has got -- what a job she does. by the way, it is still always about the ratings. her ratings are through the roof. congratulations. through the roof, she is great. she is great, a great person, too. we also took the toughest ever action against china, and as a
11:25 pm
result -- [applause and cheers] pres. trump: we just achieved a breakthrough on the trade deal, and we will be signing it very shortly. they are already buying billions and billions of dollars of products, agricultural products. i spoke to president xi yesterday. and you know, he is also coming down and clamping down, laura, on fentanyl. i said you got to do that, fentanyl coming out of china, they are clamping down, and they are clamping down strongly. that is a big thing. it came out of china, and it has not been good. it has been terrible actually. i said you have to do that, and they have been doing it, they have been going strongly against it. it has had a big impact. yesterday i signed into law the largest ever investment in our military, $738 billion, and i officially created the sixth branch of the u.s. armed forces, the space force. [cheering and applause]
11:26 pm
>> [chanting] usa! pres. trump: i tell you, i go, and a lot of times, a lot of times i will say something, and you are like a free poll for me, it is true. i will ask questions like, what do you like better for this campaign, maga, make america great again which we always , like, or keep america great? that is very surprising. so normally most candidates, like you know, people they don't know too much, they hire a pollster. the pollster goes to about 92 people, and they wonder why the polls are wrong. how come the polls were wrong? in my case, they do a pole and now they add 10% or 12% now, it took them a while to figure that
11:27 pm
out. but you know what? i do it, and i say i have this room full of incredible people -- i say, what do you like better? now, i am a little superstitious. i will never give up make america great again, i can't do that dan. , i can't do it, dan. so i am never going to do that. so what happened? i was thinking, we have the highest stock market in the history of our country by far. [applause and cheers] 135 times since i am president, which is less than three years, substantially, january 20 is not too long away. think of it. 135 times, we broke a record. we had a stock market record. that to me is not a stock market record. it is a record for 401(k)s, it is a record of people owning stocks, it is a record of jobs, jobs, jobs. so we have this great country, our military is rebuilt.
11:28 pm
we have never done better than we are doing now. our country is respected again. so i say wait a minute, make america great again, that is like we are continuing -- we just set the record for the history of our country. hey excuse me, african-americans , -- they all know him -- african-american unemployment is at the lowest level it has ever been. hispanic american -- right? [applause and cheers] pres. trump: right? hispanic american unemployment lowest level ever. asian american, lowest level ever. by the way, women, women, women -- [cheering and applause] pres. trump: i failed you, i failed you. lowest level in 71 years, i am sorry. that is all right. but remember this, very soon you're going to have historic, lowest in 71 years,
11:29 pm
african-american, hispanic american, asian american. and poverty levels are the best they have ever been for african-american, for hispanic american. [cheering and applause] pres. trump: for young african-americans, our numbers employment are the best they have ever been, so we are doing great. so make america great again, we have already made it, we've had such an impact, so in a way, it sort of competed with the real message of what were trying to -- what we're trying to do. so i said -- and i did not pay millions of dollars for this. remember hillary came up with the phrase that was a disaster and she had to change it one day into the campaign. because i attacked it. i said see, it is all about her. they changed it, they paid a guy millions of dollars. he walked away retired. i like to make it up myself. but keep america great, right? keep america great. so let's have a poll. ready. we will go first, maga.
11:30 pm
keep america great -- i didn't like it, it was kag, i did not like it at first, but it is becoming cool. so let's have a quick poll. i see a lot of these keep america great. stand up, sir. look at that beautiful hat. got a higher front, gives you a couple of extra inches. it has gotten that high front, big letters. keep america great, make america great again, ready? who wants to keep make america great again? [cheering and applause] pres. trump: see? who wants to have keep america great? [cheering and applause] pres. trump: an amazing thing. one more shot at it. who wants make america great again? [cheering and applause] pres. trump: who wants keep america great?
11:31 pm
[cheering and applause] pres. trump: ok. so i have done that like 10 times with audiences, and smart audiences, this is my poll, thank you, you just save me a million dollars. but i have done that like 10 times with big audiences, right, and every single time, it is keep america great. at the same time, none of us want to lose maga, so kimberly, don, charlie all of you people, , let's do both. ok? let's do both. if you are superstitious -- look, let's face it, when we came in, and we started the campaign like for years, more than four years ago, make america great again, that was probably the greatest phrase in the history of politics, really. right? so i am a loyalist, i don't take things and just throw it to the side. the truth is our country is doing better than ever before, we are so respected again, leaders come in from other
11:32 pm
countries, prime ministers, presidents, kings, queens, dictators in some cases, they just don't know they are dictators. or our people don't, either. they come in and say congratulations, what you have done is amazing. they are talking about all of us. and you know what, it is. but we will keep both and we will probably focus more on keep america great, but we will keep both. this week we confirmed 13 more highly qualified, brilliant federal judges to interpret the law as written. [cheering and applause] pres. trump: bringing the total to 187 federal judges, right now 187. [applause and cheers] including two great supreme court justices, neil gorsuch and brett kavanaugh. [cheering and applause] pres. trump: you know, i was going around yesterday, i heard
11:33 pm
about this, we just got 13 more, i think it might even be 15 yesterday. they always say judges are the most important thing a president can do. and i disagree, i think defense -- we have to have a country, right? i always think defense and all of that. but judges are right up there, maybe number two. i mean people say it's the , single most important thing you can do, judges, and especially obviously supreme court justices. so we have a number that can never be surpassed. we could have more than 50% of the judges in the united states, and one of the things that helped us so much is that president obama left us 142 federal judges, think of that. who would think that is possible? 142 federal judges. so we want to thank you very much, president obama. thank you. i mean normally when you leave office, you leave none, you leave none. that position is so important for the future of the country. i said to a gentleman, i came
11:34 pm
in. i said by the way, first day, how many judges do i have to appoint? sir, you have 142. i said, you have to be kidding. right? you understand that, dan, can you believe he gave us 142? and i think it will be 182 by the end of the year, i was expected to be at 182. yesterday we hit 187, can you believe that? [applause and cheers] pres. trump: it is pretty amazing. and when the left-wing arsonists came for judge kavanaugh, we refused to back down, and he refused to back down. [applause and cheers] pres. trump: and that is what they are. this week, i also signed legislation delivering record funding for our nation's amazing historically black colleges and universities. [cheering and applause] pres. trump: we secured full
11:35 pm
funding for our fall campaign to end the aids epidemic in america. [applause and cheers] who would have thought that could have been done? and to top it off this week, the dow jones broke all of those records. [applause and cheers] pres. trump: the fact is, america is winning again, america is respected again, we are respected like never before, i can tell you that. [cheering and applause] pres. trump: and you know, i went to nato, and they weren't carrying their weight, they weren't putting up their money, the press did not want to talk about it. the result lot of press back there. the fake news. >> [booing] pres. trump: there's always a lot of press. there's always a lot of press. with these guys, you can speak for weeks. if you make one little statement, they go after you because, you know why, they have fake news. you are right. [cheering and applause]
11:36 pm
pres. trump: but we are together, all of us, and you are such an important part of it, and a number of you will probably be here someday standing in the same position. i mean, it is -- we are a great group of people. we are saving the republic. but there is still much to be done. you know we have to win this , election. that was the most important election, and i will always be -- look, how exciting was that night? how exciting was that? you remember that great evening in november of 2016, that night, and everybody was saying, we don't think he's going to make it. they were so happy. we don't think he's going to make it. it's going to be a short evening for donald trump -- they did not call me president trump. going to be a short evening, because remember the exit polls were not good, and do you know why they were not good? did you know? because people would walk out,
11:37 pm
would walk out of the voting you votingho are for?" "it is not of your business." and they had like 35% of the people said that, so they did not count that, they did not know that 100% of the people that said that voted for us, right? so they didn't count. but we are in a battle of survival for this nation, we really are. when you look at these people, talk with their green new deal -- but i don't want to knock it, if you don't mind. i don't want to knock it. i knocked the hell out of pocahontas. i got her down. [applause and cheers] pres. trump: too early. it is too early, they can change. i don't want to say the green new deal. i think it is a wonderful thing, i do want to think about it, i want to study it closely. >> [laughter] pres. trump: i want to see whether or not we should ever use airplanes again. how about the senator from hawaii?
11:38 pm
nasty nasty, horrible what she , says, what she says is so mean and angry. she is not the smartest person on the planet. >> [laughter] pres. trump: she wants the green new deal, and then they informed her that that does not include airplanes. and you have the senator from hawaii. so they said, what are you going to do? and then they talked about building a train to hawaii, can you believe it? [laughter] pres. trump: no, no. she wants it even though you will never get to hawaii again. say goodbye to hawaii. no it is crazy, isn't it, , though? but i don't want to knock it. all of these things have to be -- it is too soon, let it go. let it seed like our great agenda has to seed like a tree. it has to seed. let the green new deal seed. and then about two months before the campaign ends, i will rip

11:42 pm
[cheering and applause] pres. trump: and you see these magnificent fields, and they are ruined. and you know what they don't tell you about windmills? after 10 years they look like hell. they start to get tired, you have to replace them. a lot of times people don't replace them. they need a massive subsidy on -- from the government in order to make it, and it is a terrible thing. what they want to do is get rid of all petroleum products, that means you basically won't have any factories in the united states. so tell me how are you going to , win texas when you say we are going to get rid of all petroleum, right? if you win -- how about this guy, beto, beto? he was a beauty. beto came out, he is from texas, he came out against religion, he came out against guns, and he came out against energy, oil,

[cheers and applause] pres. trump: i assume the numbers a couple of hundred years ago were better because we didn't have anything. slow over the last 40 years we are in very good shape. the coming months will decide whether our company will be governed by a corrupt, failed and far left ruling class or whether we will govern our
11:44 pm

[applause and cheers] pres. trump: 16 more years. you heard me say that. there's this whack job on television, and he's sitting down interviewing a guest, and he's a crazed lunatic. these people, we have driven them crazy. you know at first i didn't , really like the term "trump derangement syndrome." i didn't. but it is. people actually go to see psychiatrists, and all we're trying to do is make our country better.
11:45 pm
it is crazy. think of it. wantnt great education, we low taxes, we want a strong military, we want homes, mortgage rates -- what are we doing that is bad? and yet they have trump derangement syndrome. it's so crazy, but it's all going to work out. this guy's sitting down, he's interviewing a guest, and he's saying you know he's going to win, don't you? he is going to win. he's going to win. this is a couple of months ago. the guest says, no, we're going to fight very hard, we have a good chance. no, no, he's going to win, and in four years he's not leaving. he's never leaving, i'm telling you. and i thought he was kidding. you know he's a comedian, i , guess. i don't know, he's nothing. the guy is a zero, but he's going, he's going, no, no, he's never leaving. and i started thinking, and the guy really believes that, ok. so from now on, start yelling "16 more years." you're going to drive them -- on every front.
11:46 pm
the extreme leftists who control so much of the media, which is -- i can't say totally corrupt, but i'll say almost totally corrupt and you see it now more than you've ever seen it, and i see it better than you because i'm involved. in other words, we call up and say, that story is wrong, would you please make a correction? and they say no. we say, but the story is wrong. they say we don't care. they don't care. these people are really corrupt and dishonest, and it's a shame. and we have some great journalists, we have some great people, but the level of the media corruptness, and you know, it would be so great for our country if they in fact were straight and honest, but they're really not, and nobody can -- i can't tell you how bad it is. [applause] pres. trump: the washington swamp -- nobody knew how bad it was either. we used the word swamp. we thought it was ok.
11:47 pm
these people are crazy. they're vicious, they're totally out of control, but we're knocking them down pretty good right now. they're waging war on the values and principles that have always defined america. they're trying to silence, censor and punish anyone who dissents from their oppressive ideology. you know that. they want to hound conservatives. you see what they do. you see what they do. the reporter who was beat up and so many others. but they only go after people that aren't fighters. they only go after the nonfighters. i could tell you some stories. they don't go after -- they don't go after the tough ones. we have the toughest people, but our toughest people don't need to do that, and hopefully they never will. hopefully they never will. but we have incredible people , but they always go after people that are nonfighters, people that are not going to do anything bad other than they'll
11:48 pm
write or put down their feelings, and they just decimate them, and they have to be careful because you can't do that. you can't do that. they want to -- where is hunter, by the way? [applause and cheers] pres. trump: where is he? where's hunter? he's a guy, made no money. then all of a sudden he's making a fortune. and i watched as biden is being interviewed, while this claim is totally unsubstantiated -- no, it's not. and when biden got up and made the quid pro quo, the likes i've never seen before -- right? and i'm going to get $1 billion. $1 billion. unless they get rid of the prosecutor. you see it? everybody saw that. dan. if you say it, they say shut up what he said. they practically apologized, i'm sorry, sir, for having to ask you -- because while it's totally unsubstantiated. and then they talked about his son. here's a guy made no money, had no energy experience, no
11:49 pm
nothing, and he's making millions. but you know forget about , ukraine. how about when he went to china, ok, and he walked away with $1.5 million to manage? and i went to the biggest guys on wall street, smartest, biggest. i said, let me ask you a question. is that possible? no, we can't do it. and these are the smartest guys, most respected areas they have many trillions, billions of dollars of the funds they manage. no, it's not possible, not with china. they don't do that. he gets $1.5 million. by the way, that is not all. other countries are coming out, and it only took place when this guy became the vice president. oh, i hope he wins because he will never, ever be able to ok ever.ese questions, , the fake news can do whatever they want to do. he will never, ever be able to answer why a guy, who was making absolutely no money, is making millions and millions of dollars
11:50 pm
a year on companies that there are those that say they were corrupt. but they want to blame all of us, and i'll tell you what, what we've done is we've kept our country solid and grounded. that's what we're doing. [applause] pres. trump: we're doing a very important service. [applause] pres. trump: we're performing a very, very important service for the future of our country, i can tell you. charlie kirk and the whole group, very important. [applause and cheers] pres. trump: because the radical left, socialists, or in many cases, i hate to say this, beyond socialists -- you know what the next word is, right? beyond -- i won't say it. i won't say it. if i say it -- even if i -- i'll retweet it. [applause and cheers] pres. trump: i won't say it, there's too many cameras. you know i said to charlie last
11:51 pm
, time i spoke, i said let's not have any press, so we can have -- but there's always press. there's always press. there's even people here with a cell phone. you think you are doing us favors. you're not doing us any favors. there's always press. i won't say that comment. i can imagine what most of you are thinking, but anyway. he is going come on, please. , they want to ban believers -- you know that -- from the public square. they want to indoctrinate children with a far left ideology in the schools. you see what is going on in the schools. kids come home and they tell their parents, what the hell is happening here? no, no. it is true. it's a problem that has to be taken care of. the democrat party is trying to shred our constitution, tear down our history, erase the nation's borders. they don't want to have any borders. by the way didn't you love the , fact that i got funding for the wall? we're building it anyway, as you know. [applause and cheers]
11:52 pm
>> [chanting "four more years"] pres. trump: building it anyway. [chanting "build the wall"] pres. trump: the only thing more popular than the space force. i go back to politics. i've -- i'd say space force, everybody went crazy all the time. first time i mentioned it a year and a half ago, we're going to have a space force. the place went crazy. probably "star wars" people, who the hell knows. i said i'm not doing this for political reasons, we need that. that's the next frontier, but the only thing more popular always is the wall, and it's being built, but now we have funding. and you know, it's funny, i got that one through as part of the defense bill because you know what, the democrats don't like the issue anymore because they know we're right. when you see what's happening over there, they know we're
11:53 pm
right. they sort of let that one sail through. they got tired of that wall fight. that wall fight was not good for them politically. i can tell you that. so we built almost 100 miles already. it's going up rapidly, and it's the real deal. [applause and cheers] pres. trump: so do you remember why they always used to call themselves the democratic party? sounded better, right? the democratic -- you, me, everybody. yeah, the democratic party. no, no, it's not. it's the democrat party. doesn't sound as good, that's why i use it. the democratic party sounds better, but we're not here to make them look great, and you know, schumer, crying chuck this , guy gets angry at people when they say the democrat party because it doesn't go. they should probably change the name. i will give them a little free
11:54 pm
idea. i don't like calling it the democrat party because in the speech, it's not as beautiful. they will say, we didn't like trump's speech. you know, it is a funny thing. they never talk about my speaking ability, and yet i've never had an empty seat. i'm trying to figure it out. it's true. no, it's true. i don't know how you figure that out. we've never had, from the time we came down -- but think of it. so we call it the democrat party. it doesn't flow the same way, but that's ok, but their radical judges invent laws that congress never passed. what we've gone through with immigration is terrible. these judges come up, and they want to set immigration from a certain area, let's say -- well, ok, how about the ninth circuit? do you know that as of next week, do you know we're going to be even on the ninth circuit? this was a disaster. [applause and cheers] pres. trump: we put a lot of
11:55 pm
judges on the ninth circuit. a lot of those judges that we mentioned are on the ninth circuit, but they have these radical judges and radical prosecutors. they ignore the laws that they don't like, and they're unbelievably crazy, partisan, seek to nullify elections they didn't win. remember, we won an election, and i'll tell you what, it's never been so much in the -- not only did we win the election, we had an electoral college landslide, ok? it was a landslide. [applause and cheers] pres. trump: and when all else fails, they pursue an illegal unconstitutional and , hyper-partisan impeachment. they go with the impeachment thing. some of these extremists may call themselves democrats, but they really don't believe in democracy. they can't. they can't believe in democracy. generations of patriots before us didn't work -- look, we had people that want to work.
11:56 pm
we have people now that maybe it just doesn't work for them, but generations of patriots before us did not work, fight and sacrifice so that we could surrender our country to a raging left wing mob, and that's >> each of you is coming of aiming at a critical moment and your spirit is so unbelievable. spirit, through thick and thin, has been unbelievable. of excitement in the
11:57 pm
republican party today is opinion, than it's ever been in the history of the republican party. believe [cheering] >> never been this way. in fact. they have polls, enthusiasm have, they call them, that us at a level we've never been at before. the democrats always had the edge on that. are higher than them. we have more enthusiasm. they are cutting themselves up. if they're down, middle, or far left. with eachghting other. that's ok with us. but you know what? after we win the election, let's we can put everybody together, because it would really be a great thing. can pute if we everybody together. [cheering] win thee have to election and i think we have to win the election big. what does bring together -- two bad things, really bad things happen and people come together. and really good things. way. do it the good we're doing so well as a
11:58 pm
country. people are doing so well that i it's going to bring people together. it's starting to bring people not.her, believe it or [cheering] >> we're facing an opposition use totalitarian methods to get their way and you see it. democrats andthe their deep state allies have been caught doing. they spied on my campaign. so you know, we have a reason to be angry, folks. angry. a reason to be they spied on my campaign. and i said it two years ago. i said it two and a half, three years ago. now, it's come out. they spied on my campaign. reversed, you would have had people in jail for years already. years. they defrauded the pfizer court, highly respected. they totally defrauded the pfizer court. concealed e exculpatory

12:00 am
agent of russia. . that's what they said about me three years ago. it took me two and a half years whereny, horrible hits they heard a lot of people. they heard a lot of innocent people. two and a half years. said en when they sit -- jill stein. the congressman of texas is such a tough guy. he made a statement. it was like a perfect statement. started screaming he is an agent of russia. these people have gone crazy. they have gone crazy. they perpetrated the russia hoax. the biggest why ever told to the american public. they encouraged in a selected group of bureaucrats to toward -- sort the will of the american voters. our opponents have spent every waking minute of the last three
12:01 am
years china overthrow the election of 2016, and, at a minimum, to sabotage the election of 20 tony. that's not going to happen. we are not going to let it happen. happen, and if they were successful. destroy this country. remember that. they will destroy this country. important than ever to drain the swamp, and we're doing that. [applause] despite everything the failed ruling class has thrown at us, and don't forget when i came here, i didn't have great experience. i mean, i learned quickly. i have been a very good spokesman. have i done well as a spokesman? [cheering] pres. trump: but we went through eight years of clinton, eight years of bush, eight years of obama.
12:02 am
ande have bush and clinton obama -- that's 24 years. that's a lot of people they put in, they put in, they put it in. it's thousands and thousands of people. and they fight you. and we have republicans, frankly, that are worse. these never-trumpers. you have never-trumper republicans. in some cases they're worse than the obama and clinton people. they are never-trumpers, these are the dumbest human being on earth, ok? [cheers and applause] pres. trump: they're the dumbest human beings. we give them the judges. we give them the great military. we give them low taxes. we had the greatest tax cut in the history of our country. we give them all of these things, right. and they just hate me. if it was jim smith, president of the united states, they'll say he's the greatest president that ever lived, but with me, they can't get over it. but there's unfortunately not many of them left but they're
12:03 am
sick people. there is no question about it. but despite crooked leadership at the top of the f.b.i., crooked, dirty cops at the top. f.b.i., great people, but at the top of the f.b.i., you had dirty cops. deep state sabotage. 18 angry democrat prosecutors. these were all put in there to destroy us. think of what we did. you heard russia -- think of what we did, think of where we've come. how vicious it was. they had 13 angry democrats. they were smart, vicious, evil. and it built up to 18. they had 49 f.b.i. agents. thousands of subpoenas. hundreds of people and they found nothing. there's nobody in this room that could have gone through that and found nothing. i really mean that, too. it's incredible. they found nothing. how clean am i? [cheers and applause] pres. trump: no, think of that. but endless congressional investigations -- but think of
12:04 am
it. hundreds of people interviewing everybody and they found nothing. the mueller report came out, it was a total dud. after two and a half years. they have a baseless impeachment. millions of pages of fake news propaganda because the news was totally on their side. it's part of the democrat party. it is a wing. the media is a wing of the democrat party. and all of the washington powers, they were all arrayed against us. they're losing, we're winning , and we're succeeding in our mission to make america great again. [cheers and applause] just enclosingm closing, look, there has never been a better time to be young and to be american. your future -- [cheers and applause] pres. trump: and the future of our nation is unlimited. we've created more than seven million jobs since the election , including 266,000 new jobs last month alone.
12:05 am
for everyone graduating into the work force this year, there are now more job openings than job seekers for the first time in the history of our country. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: young people like you have seen their wages rise by more than 10% since the election, a number that has not been surpassed. median household incomes are the highest in the history of our country. real household take-home pay gains will reach up to $10,000 a year. never happened. under president obama, it was $975 for eight years. right? median income. under president bush it was $450. under president -- and that is
12:06 am
eight years, eight years. $450, $975. right? three years, but really less. two and a half years when the numbers came out. under president trump, per family, more than $10,000. that's why the economy is so good. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: unemployment among younger americans has reached a 63-year low. [applause] pres. trump: and i just want to tell you, look, i am so proud of what we've done with the employment numbers. i am so proud of what we've done with african american and hispanic american numbers. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: when you look at the unemployment rate for youth and you look at the fact -- for youth, so important. remember three, four years ago, there was no work. now it's the lowest they've ever had. so while our opponents have
12:07 am
abandoned african americans, and they have, they've abandoned. you know what they do, they come up, before the election, they start courting the african americans. the election is over, then they leave them. we've done the opposite. what we've done for hispanic, for african american, for minorities, what we've done is unprecedented. it's unprecedented. and you know, remember my phrase, you remember the phrase, right? what do you have to lose? remember that? i was reading stats and the stats were terrible. highest crime rate, highest this, worst income, worst this. i was reading the stats. there were 10 of them. and i looked at the audience who was largely african american and i say, vote for me, what the hell do you have to lose? remember? right? and some of my people didn't like it but i said i have to say it because it's true and they did vote for me and we won the race and now we're setting records and i'm so proud of
12:08 am
those records that we're setting. with african american, at every category, and with hispanic american and asian american. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: every day we're welcoming more and more people to our movement from every background. traditional democrats, independent, union members. you see the way we're growing and we're growing untraditionally. we're taking in workers now. we're taking in people that had great jobs and didn't have them any longer because the fools that ran our country were letting these companies leave and they were leaving and everybody was out of work, but we're not doing that anymore so we've changed the system and the republican party is growing like nobody's ever seen before and you're going to see that and remember, we did well in the 18 election. i wasn't able to go out other than andy barr and a couple of other people, i wasn't able to go out and work for the house members, because i had to win
12:09 am
the senate and we picked up two seats. and nobody talks. we picked up two senate seats. we got up to 53. and nobody ever talks about that. it's the senate that has to confirm the judges. but the other thing is a lot of the voters said trump isn't on the ballot, we're not going to vote. i wish they would. but they didn't. that's what they say. they say he's not on the ballot. but i'm on the ballot this time and i think we're going to have numbers that are going to be record setting numbers. we're going to have record setting numbers. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: we passed massive tax cuts to bring back jobs and factories home from other countries. we've cut a record number of job killing regulation, we ended the war on american energy and the united states is now the number one producer of oil and natural gas anywhere in the world by far. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: while the socialist left is trying to take away the
12:10 am
,octors and health care plans americans -- they're trying to take away your plan. medicare for all. you know how bad that is? i'm fighting to let you keep your doctor, keep your plan at lower cost. you look at what's happening, how we're doing it. we want all americans to have great healthcare at a price that they can afford and for the first time in half a century we've lowered the price of prescription drugs. first time, 50 years. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: through our pledge to american workers, private sector partners have pledged to provide training and career opportunity for 14 million americans where private companies teach these people that did not have work, they couldn't get a job, they're being taught what to do, how to do it, how to use computers. government can't do that. 14 million people are in those programs and they're working today. [cheers and applause]
12:11 am
pres. trump: after years of rebuilding foreign countries, we are finally rebuilding our country. that's what it's all about. [cheers and applause] >> pres. trump: and thanks to our tireless efforts to secure our southern border, illegal crossings are down 75% since may and we have ended catch and release. we have cracked down on illegal welfare abuse. we have massively reduced asylum fraud. we have achieved record prosecutions of chronic immigration violators and the southern border wall is going up at a much faster rate than anybody thought possible. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: one of the gravest dangers we face is the menace of a thing call sanctuary cities. [booing]
12:12 am
pres. trump: the far left's embrace of sanctuary cities demonstrates their scorn and disdain for everyday americans. sanctuary cities deliberately release dangerous, criminal aliens out of their jails on to our city streets. i want to commend florida and its terrific new governor ron desantis for banning sanctuary cities. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: and our very tough and very patriotic ice agents, look at what is going on with the drug smugglers. we are sending ms-13 out of our country by the thousands. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: we're getting rid of criminal aliens from florida communities. we're sending them back home and we will not let them back in. they're not coming back in. we're taking them far away. we believe our country should be a sanctuary for law-abiding americans, not for criminal
12:13 am
aliens. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: the open borders agenda of the radical left causes profound harm to poor working class americans. their extreme policies overcrowd schools and hospitals. they drain vital public resources, deplete healthcare dollars, and place enormous burdens on taxpayers of every background. it also brings them to our country. if they didn't get it, we wouldn't have millions of people trying to get in. by one estimate, illegal immigration costs americans more than $200 billion every single year. when it comes to setting immigration policy, we always remember the sacred truth, our first duty and our one true allegiance is to you, the american citizen. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: throughout the western hemisphere, we are facing down the evil forces of
12:14 am
communism and socialism. i've taken historic actions to confront the brutal regimes in cuba, venezuela, and nicaragua , and we stand with the people of those nations in their righteous struggle for freedom. [cheers and applause] to those who would try to impose the harms of socialism on our country, i say to you again tonight, america will never be a socialist country. [cheering] pres. trump: never. [chanting "usa"] we will always defend our beloved constitution, in the face of the belligerent
12:15 am
left trying to crush organized religion, we are standing strong for religious liberty. we are protecting the conscience -- you know this -- and the rights of doctors, teachers, nurses, and groups like the little sisters of the poor and we are fighting for the lives of the unborn. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: we are also firmly protecting the second amendment and your right to keep and bear arms, and it is under siege. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: it is unders siege , but we are protecting. don't worry. in addition, we're safe guarding your first amendment right to free speech, including online and on campus, and charlie kirk knows that very well. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: i've issued an historic executive order stating that any college that refuses to let you, meaning you, but anybody, speak, stands to lose billions and billions of taxpayer dollars. [cheers and applause]
12:16 am
pres. trump: we give them all of this money and then they don't let you speak. well, we just ended that. i also took -- we call it bold action, but let's just call it action. this month, to confront anti-semitism on the college campus. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: our message to these universities is simple, if you want to accept federal funding, you must reject anti-semitic hate and hate of all kinds. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: few americans know more about oppressive tactics of the radical left than conservatives on college campuses with what you've been through, especially the intrepid young men and women of turning point u.s.a. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: with us today is laura schock, a student at north carolina state university, who
12:17 am
was violently attacked by thugs antifa thugs while promoting a turning point event on campus. where is she? is she around here somewhere? is that you? oh, hi. good, you ok? you good? she's good. she's tough. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: despite these vicious tactics, laura's event was so popular that they had to turn away almost 1,000 people. so laura, come up here, laura. please tell us what happened. [cheers and applause]
12:18 am
laura: thank you, president trump. what an honor it is to be up here. as you know, i go to n.c. state where our friend, laura trump, went. members of antifa and other socialist groups violently attacked jack bishop, carson bishop's son, as well as pulled people's hair, even my hair, and mocked people for their medical conditions. but at the end of the day, we have a responsibility. us turning point u.s.a. members have a duty to stand up for what is right and continue to fight for freedom.
