[cheers and applause] we are in your debt and we'll never let you down. now, you know, we did very well with many, many different groups. we did fantastically well with the african-american community. we did fantastically well with the hispanic community. we have a lot of people here tonight from the india community. hindus. we did great with the hindus. where are they? we have a big group. there they are. i want to thank you. you folks were amazing. they went out and they voted, and they were fantastic. and we did well with women. women.
but you know, we -- by the way. how about the evangelicals. how good was that? a world record. evangelical christians. we set the all-time record in the history of elections in this country. evangelicals. we are going to honor our troops and it really begins with restoring respect for our great american flag. is that right? we are going to defend the flag, our heroes fought and died for to protect. i don't like to when i see people burning our flag. i don't like it. i don't like it. i don't like it. and you don't like it. we are going to try doing something about it. we are going to do something about it. we are also going to rebuild our badly depleted military. we have the greatest people in
the world in our the military. we are going to re-build our you depleted military and we'll take care of our great, great veterans. where are the veterans tonight? [crowd chants "usa"] america pursues this vast military power in the hopes that we do not have to use it. but we'll be prepared if we have to. there has rarely been a time when we needed military power more than it is right now. and we'll going have it. it will be peace through strength. peace through strength. at the same time, our foreign
policy needs a new direction. we have spent $6 trillion in the middle east. and now it's in worse shame than it's ever been before. years of horror. and look what's happening over there right now. $trillion and look what's happened. it's death, it's a horrible thing. we are going to dosing we can. we'll get it straightened out one way or another. but just think it. all of that money within all of those lives. and i mean lives on both sides. tremendous lives, tremendous numbers of people. and we have nothing. it's 15 times worse than it was when we started. so we are going to start using our head. we are going to do things right and try to patch that up and try to help people. we'll build safe zones. we are going to build safe zones in syria. we are going to build safe
zones. and we are going to get the gulf states to pay for the safe zones and we'll try on help people. we are going to try and we are going to get it done. meanwhile at home. our infrastructure is crumbling, tour schools are failing and our workers can't find good-paying jobs. you know that. we are going to change that so fast your heads are going to spin. instead rebuilding foreign nations, it's time to rebuild our nation. that's what we are going to do. for too long we have been moving from one reckless intervention to another, countries that most of you have never even heard of before. it's crazy. and it's going to stop. a trump administration will focus on the vital national security interests of the united states.
and that means crushing isis rapidly and defeeting radical islamic terrorism. [cheers and applause] importantly, america will also stands with the cuban people in their long struggle for freedom. i want to appreciate -- their support mass been unbelievable. the cuban people. we know what we have to do and we'll do it. so don't worry about it. the numbers have been incredible. they gave me just prior to the election the bay of pigs award and let me tell you, that was a great honor for me. i want to thank the cuban people. to be a strong nation, we must also be a rich nation. a wealthy nation. and we'll be.
whether it's exploring space, or curing disease. we want the next generation of innovation and production to happen right here in america and right here in our great state of florida. right? and you know, speak of florida, should i discuss that one day, a day in the life? should we do that or not? i always say should we do it? and everybody wants to do it. you probably heard it before. but we'll make it florida oriented because this was a big, big win. wee won easily. we won by a tremendous number of votes. if you watched the very dishonest people back here on television, man, is that a lot.
well, you know, maybe before we start, this field is massive. i'm looking back there, and with the lights you can't see. i'm seeing -- there they are, look at that. that is a lot of people. man! i'll tell you, that is a lot of people back there. let's see if we can get the cameras to turn around and capture the size of this audience. they won't do it, but let's give it a shot. man, that's a big crowd. you know what we should have done. we should have mad the cameras back and the people forward. because we waste our time with these people.
we should have had the cameras back. next time do that. move the cameras back. you know the equipment is so great nowadays that they can microscoipt and we can get it nice. they can be all the way in the back and it won't make any difference for television. they are screaming "move them back." can you believe it? all right. look. you know what? here is the bottom line. they are very dishonest. they have written very dishonestly about all of us. this is a movement like they have never seen before. yet we won, folks. we won. and you see other side is complaining.
you watch? they are all complaining. before the election when they thought they were going to win and i didn't -- that final week was magic. every place we went we had crowds like this. and you are going to have 2,000 people here tonight. more, you have thousands outside that can't get in. that's pretty good when you can't get into a field, owe kay? and i spoke to the fire marshal. i said can't you let more people in at the back? i said there is no fire here. she said stampede. that's how many people we have. they are wereyed about a stampede. at least we know it will be a friendly stampede. right? i appreciate you being here. this is incredible. and this is -- i had this idea, we won and we won easily. remember they said he cannot get
to 270. there is no path to 270. right? i went to maine four times. because i wanted to get one vote. if maine had one, i needed the one because i believe those people. we went out and we watched the media, and we believe the media, and the media is very dishonest. they were even dishonest in their exit polls. what is the purpose of being dishonest in an exit poll when you are going to find out the truth in three hours. what are they doing? other than tormenting us because we thought for two or three hours that we were going to lose. but it started three months before the election when we heard the great state of texas which i thought we were doing great in, and georgia, what a great state. and utah. and you heard it. georgia is in play.
now, that means that, you know, i could lose it. now, you shouldn't lose it as a republican. you lose georgia, you are in big trouble. he's even. he's even in georgia. i said man i thought i was way up. texas, texas is in play. i said this is not good. and then we had the exit polls. and my daughter and son-in-law called me and said, pop, not looking good. not looking good. and i really thought -- i was already preparing in my mind. i was saying well, if that's the way it is, because they were faulty polls. but they said, ivanka, has anyone heard of ivanka? she said, dad, i'm telling you, don't worry about it, dad it's okay. i said i can't believe it that we are going to lose. because i see these crowd it doesn't make sense.
bottom line, the polls close, right? and they go, donald trump has won the great state of texas. i said what happened. like in two minute. donald trump breaking news. donald trump has won georgia. donald trump has won utah. these were states for two months they are talking about that we are even. and in fact in to you thank you i had this character nobody ever saw before, nobody ever herd of him before, i said to -- nobody ever heard of him before, evan mcmuffin. do you believe that or something like that. i never heard of this guy before. nobody did. and the polls said he's even with donald trump. my wife said, she looked at the television and said he's not even with you. believe me. he's not even.
anyway, so we win. they all love melania. isn't melania great? she is great. she is a solid rock great person. and she loves you. and she is enjoying herself. it's much better to win than to lose. do we agree with that? so utah, it gets announced very early. breaking news, donald trump has won utah. we didn't just win it. we slaughtered. evan, whoever this is, this person, remember he said, we think we can win the election. but we said you are only going to win maybe utah. and you know what he would have done if he did? we have plenty of everything. but all -- i don't know if he's a lightweight. we should never say that. don't ever call a person like that a lightweight. what a group.
only in florida could this stuff happen. but we won utah by a lot. like a real lot. and it was a massive -- and evan didn't even come in second. hillary came in second. so i think -- i really believe it was dishonest polling. but who knows. who thinks it was dishonest by the media? i do. we open up with that. then all of a sudden ohio where they had us down for two months as even, we win by almost 10 points. so we hear -- and we were supposed to win maybe by 2 points or one point or three points. and i had a little hostile environment. i had a governor who wasn't like the great rick scott. i had a governor -- i said how do you win a state when you
don't have the support of the governor. i think i did better this way. so they go out and they say, breaking news, donald trump has won ohio and with a very big number. then breaking news, donald trump has won iowa by more than 10 point. that's unheard of, right? then we come down to this beautiful piece of land we all love surrounded by the ocean, right? surrounded. surrounded by beautiful seas. it's a place called florida. if you ever heard of it? has everybody heard of florida? i love florida. i love the people of florida. so all night long it's even. it's even. it's going even, even. then they get to the panhandle. i don't know who lives in the panhandle. not too many. did i blow them out of the panhandle or what?
you know what? the panhandle wants its jobs back. but the panhandle was unbelievable, and we won until big, much bigger than anybody thought. so they go -- you know, you had other side. they were being interviewed saying we'll win florida and we expect to win it easily. breaking news, donald trump wins the state of florida. right? and then we win south carolina. and then we have north carolina. north carolina was supposed to be close. very hard for the republicans to win. a lot of reasons for that. but it's very hard. but we worked hard there. and we really -- my children were there, and everybody was there. they were working hard. then it comes out, the tarheels, then it comes out very strongly that trump is looking good in north carolina.
and my opponent, i won't mention names -- but my opponent, they spent a fortune, they spent a fortune in north carolina. and their people got on television [crowd chants "lock her up"] >> that's so terrible. you know, here is what's happening. i notice because i did ohio, we did north carolina. we did all of them. last night, hershey, pennsylvania. did you see that crowd? it's like thank you florida, thank you pennsylvania. we are doing a thank you. nobody ever heard of it before. we have more manage nation and anybody who has ever done this because we are not politicians. but i'll tell you what i noticed.
so we go to ohio and we go to iowa. the crowds are incredible. thank you. thank you. amazing people. so here is what i noticed. four weeks ago just prior to, and always prior to, you people were vicious, violent, screaming, where's the wall, we want the wall. screaming, prison, prison. lock her up. you were going crazy. i mean you were nasty and mean and vicious and you wanted to win, right? now same crowd, that's right, deplorables. what ever happened to the deplorables? they are not so deplorable.
they are not so deplorable anymore. the other side is trying to figure out, how in four years do we get some of these deplorables to our side. but now it's much different. now, you lay back, you are cool, you are mellow, right? you are basking in the glory of victory. and we are already getting to work. you see what we did with carrier. we are saving a lot of jobs. many, many places. we have got a lot of things going on. we are going to do the big picture. but we'll have to wait until we get in office. do you agree? i'm having a hard time waiting. i just make phone calls. but now you are mellow. and you are cool. and you are not nearly as vicious or violent. right? because we won. right? and now you are sort of laying back all though it doesn't
exactly sound like a totally laid back crowd. but that's okay. so the other side goes out and they say, trump cannot win north carolina. that's our fire wall. remember on television. this our fire wall. ladies and gentlemen, we have breaking news. donald trump has won the state of north carolina. unbelievable. and then you look at pennsylvania. pennsylvania was always the state they say the bride that got away. every republican for 8 years. but every republican, they left. before the election everybody thought he single republican, you are going to win pennsylvania. you know that. it didn't work out that way at all. never worked out that way. and we were campaigning in pennsylvania. we were getting the biggest crowds they ever had, they have ever seen. and i kept saying we are going
to win the state. then i heard over and over, republicans don't win it. they think they are going to win the and they don't win it. and they wouldn't announce these crooked people back here. they wouldn't -- no, no. they wouldn't announce it. first of all, first of all, they were in state of panic. they were in a state. now we win florida and they were worried because we won ohio by so much more than we were anticipated to win. and we won iowa so big, and we won florida so much bigger than we thought. just to go back a few months. how good did we do in florida in the primary. right? how good was that. that was good. but i don't talk about that anymore. we don't talk about that. so now they are getting nervous on television. and you see these anchors and
they are sweating and crying and throwing up all over the place. and you know, a couple of them with the chart. john king is very good with the chart. you know all those months he's saying there is no path to 270 for donald trump. there is no path. so now what happens, we are leading pennsylvania. we are leading pennsylvania by a lot. and we have 1%, 99%, and it was there for hours. i said why don't they -- i considered it a win. the 1% was not nearly enough votes because we were leading by a lot. but instead announce it at 11:00, they waited until 3:00 in the morning. now, i think they did that for commercials if you want to know the truth because the audience was massive.
but a couple things happened that were surprising. we have breaking news, ladies and gentlemen, donald trump -- now the guy is getting sick. he's ready to throw up all over. donald trump -- this came out -- these people are incredible. i thought we were going to do well there -- donald trump has won the state of wisconsin. where did that come from? where did it come from? and then right after that. laid gist why is and gentlemen, donald trump has won the state of michigan. michigan? hasn't been won in 38 years, right? and now the gentleman with the map which is bloody, it's so red, sow beautiful. remember the map? when they showed it? there was a lot of blue. that blue got knocked to hell,
i'll tell you that. that was pouring red. and you know, they said you cannot break the blue wall. up by canada, right? you cannot break the blue wall. i have been hearing this for months. i have said how are we going to break the blue wall until we used to believe guys like wall material cronkite. but we don't have walter cronkite anymore. this is a different world. we are listening to these people who are dishonest as hell. they are telling me for months. they are telling all of us, you cannot break the blue wall. so what happens is we not only did we break it. we shattered the hell out of it. so now we win wisconsin, and now what happens? we win wisconsin we win michigan, and i knew we were going to win michigan. i have been talk about cars being ripped out of michigan
where they make the cars. i have been talking about it for five or six years. i got the man of the year award four years ago in michigan. all i talked about was you can't let your factories go. they said that wasn't the reason for the man of the year. i said it doesn't matter. you can't do there is. but they remembered that. now he's up with the red and he's going, and hissene his -- s hand starts to shake. and he's gaping for breath. he's choke like a dog. and for months he has been saying i had no path to victory. the bad news is a lot of people probably believed him and didn't go out to vote it's called suppressing the vote. suppressing the vote. that's what it's called. you love donald trump but you figure look, alice i'm not going to go out, darling, he can't win because i believe these people
when they say he has no path to victory. man, did we have a path to victory. so he puts down red for wisconsin. he puts down red for michigan. now i don't even need the rest of the states. they took all the glamour and growerrive away from pennsylvania. they should have called it hours earlier. and he goes, i'll never forget. ladies and gentlemen, there is no path to victory for hillary clinton. [cheers and applause] there is no path. there is no path.
incredible. and then he said, donald trump is the next president of the united states. [cheers and applause] it was an amazing evening. thank you. thank you. congratulations to you. they never gave pennsylvania that glamour of victory. they should have. because those people were so incredible. i was with them last night and said they took it away from you, folks. but pennsylvania and others came in. ended up with 306 and it could have even been more than that. it was an amazing year and they say the most historic ever, they say the most historic ever but you know what's more important
now, that we altogether that i and we altogether create jobs. that's what's next. we are going to do a great job. for years the jobs and wealth have been ripped out of our country. foreign powers have gotten rich bleeding america dry but that's all about to end folks, believe me it's going to end rapidly. the american worker is finally going to have a chance in the white house and it's going to be a champion for you. our economic agenda can be summed up in three very beautiful words, jobs, jobs, jobs. that's why we are going to lower our business tax rate from 35% down to 15% and you watch what happens. we are going to bring it from
the highest in the world to one of the lower rates in the world. maybe someday we will get it down to the lowest and you watch what's going to happen. it's also why we are going to eliminate job-killing regulations. [applause] and we are going to lift the restrictions on the production of american energy including shale, oil, natural gas and clean, clean coal. another critical element of our jobs plan is a historic 1 trillion-dollar investment in our very bad and crumbling infrastructure. it's time, folks, it's time. our bridges are deficient, our roads are in disrepair, our airports are like third world countries, our schools are a disaster. we are going to ask our country. stein. we have no choice.
it's time. i am asking congress to support the construction of new roads and bridges airports pummels and railways across the country and we will put people back to work in the process. it's going to be our people. it's time to help get americans off of welfare and back into the labor market, rebuilding this country with american hands by a american workers american workers. my administration will follow two simple rules. by american and higher american. [applause] at the center of this agenda is fixing are absolutely terrible trade deals. they are so bad that i have studied them. i am one of these people, i like reading figures can you believe it? you don't want to read
