12:01 pm
election and all rise together! >> this is an msnbc exclusive town hall with secretary hillary clinton from the national constitution center in philadelphia. here now is rachel maddow. [ cheers & applause ] >> welcome to philadelphia. welcome to our town hall with presidential candidate hillary clinton. i'm rachel maddow. i could not be more excited to be here. there are five states voting tomorrow, including the big one in pennsylvania, senator sanders is down but not out in the polling. but the polls today show him closing in on secretary clinton. secretary clinton is in the lead. we have so much to talk about. it really is great to have you all here. this is going to be fun. please join me in welcoming former secretary of state
12:02 pm
hillary clinton. [ cheers & applause ] >> hi, rachel. how are you. >> thank you so much for doing this. i really appreciate it. >> i'm happy to be here. this is great. >> you're expecting a big day tomorrow. >> i hope to do as well as i can. we've. working hard. i've got terrific friends and volunteers here in pennsylvania and the other four states. we're going to work hard until the polls close tomorrow. >> we're doing these town halls tonight before this great audience in philadelphia. you and senator sanders back to back. at this point in the primary i think a lot of people think no matter who gets the nomination, there is something that's changed in the democratic primary because of this contest. i think a lot of people would
12:03 pm
describe it as sort of senator sanders putting it mark on the party, that after this contest the democratic party may be more populi populist, maybe for bro depressive overall. do you see it that way? >> i think what we've had is a very spirited contest. certainly we share a lot of the same goals. we have a commitment to doing something about inequality, more good jobs with rising incomes, we have a commitment to try to counter the much too heavy influence that money has, particularly by overturning visits united. so i think we diagnose the problem in very similar ways. but as i've said it's not enough to diagnose the problem. you have to have solutions. you have to be able to demonstrate you can achieve results. and that's why throughout this campaign i've been laying out plans, talking about what i will do, i've been as specific as
12:04 pm
it's possible to be in a campaign and i think the voters respond to that. that's why i do have far more votes than anybody else on either side. i think it's because people want, not just to understand better what we think the problem is, but what are we going to do about snit at the end of the day, that's what the real outcome should be about. >> senator sanders has been asked about how this all ends. he seems to be saying now that even if you beat him in the primary, it's not necessarily a given that he will implore all of his supporter to go out and work for you. he says that he thinks that they'll support you if basically you adopt some of his platform on the issues that are most important to him. he's specifically talked at wall street and other things on his platform. does that make sense to you? is that something you're open to? are there significant enough differences between you that
12:05 pm
that's a bridge too far? >> let's look where we are right now. i've got 10.4 million votes. i have 2.7 million more votes, real people showing up to cast their vote, to express their opinion than senator sanders. i have a bigger league in pledged delegates than senator obama when i ran against him in 2008 ever had over me. i am winning and i'm winning because of what i stand for and what i've done and what my ideas are. so, look, i think we have much more in common and i want to unify the party. but my wall street plan is much more specific than his. we saw that when he couldn't even answer questions in the new york daily news interview. i have laid out a very clear set of objectives about not just reigning in the banks because we already have dodd-frank which president obama passed and
12:06 pm
signed. i have said i'll implement it. but i've gone further. he had yet to join me in going after the shadow banking industry. there are so many more areas where i'm more specific, where i have a track record, where i explain what i will do and i think that's why i have 2.7 million more votes than he does. >> am i right in hearing that as basically you're saying there's nothing you're going to do differently than you're already doing as a way to try to win over his supporter bs, even at the end of the primary season? >> let's look at what happened in 2008 because that's the closest example. then senator obama and i ran a really hard race. it was so much closer than the race right now between me and senator sanders. we had pretty much the same amount of popular vote, by some measures i had slightly more popular vote. he had slightly more pledged delegates. we got to the end in june and i did not put down conditions. i didn't say, you know what, if
12:07 pm
senate obama does xj and d maybe i'll support him. i said i am supporting senate obama because no matter what our differences may be, they pale in comparison to the differences between us and the republicans. that's what i did. at that time 40% of my supporters said they would not support him. so from the time i withdrew until the time i nominated him, i nominated him at the convention in denver. i spent an enormous amount of time convincing my supporters to support him. and i'm happy to say the vast majority did. that is what i think one does. that is certainly what i did and i hope that we will see the same this year. >> that was june 7, 2008 when you got out of the race and endorsed president obama. june 7, 2016 will be the california primary this year. is that when you, if you're
12:08 pm
ahead in the vote -- >> i am ahead in the vote, rachel. i am way ahead in the vote. wait a minute. i have the greatest respect for senator sander but what he and his supporters are saying just doesn't add up. i have 2.7 million more votes than he has. i have more than 250 more pledged delegates. i'm very proud of the campaign that we have run and the support we have gotten. and of course we're going to work together. as i said, i share a lot of the same goals. we are going to work together. but i am ahead. and let's start from that premise while we talk about what happens next. okay? >> do you expect him to drop out june 7th? >> that's up to him. i would never tell him what to do. nobody told me. i concluded after it was over in june that senator obama was going to be the nominee and i didn't want to hurt him. i didn't want to keep this
12:09 pm
going. so i stood up and said that it's over. and i withdrew and i went to work to get him elected. i'm glad i did. it was good for the country, the right thing to do. >> a lot of republicans had proverbial heart attacks this weekend when one of the billionaire koch brothers said that you might be a better president than either donald trump or ted cruz. you do not want koch's endorsement and you've said that. it truck me of what might be a presue of what is to come. if donald trump or senator cruz is nominated, a lot will find them unacceptable as the nominee. if you are the democratic nominee in that situation, do you have a plan to lobby for republican votes. they're having a weird primary. >> they are. it's not over yet. >> it could get really normal real fast. >> that would be worth seeing.
12:10 pm
and you know, i tweeted i really am not looking for endorsements from people who deny climate change and who have the views that the koch brothers have had for so many years. so i'm going to stay focused on what i'm doing right now. i will let the republicans come to an agreement, maybe it won't happen before their convention in july as to who will be the nominee. because i have no idea what the latest alliance between cruz and kasich and everything will mean. that's for them to sort out. but i'm going to keep making the case to the american people about what i think we need to do right now to try to make sure we have broad based prosperity, that we create opportunities for every american, get back to the basic bargain that i believe in, if you work hard, you should get ahead and stay ahead an your family should be coming right along with you. and you know, focusing on education and health care and
12:11 pm
call of the other issues that i've talked about. and i've laid out specific plans about. i know that for a long time people were saying, why is she raising all of these plans. my gosh, she has a plan for everything. actually i think when you run for president you should tell people what you want to do. you shouldn't make promises you can't keep. you shouldn't just rant and rave with the trump like demagoguery. you should tell people what you're going to do because you want people to hold you accountable for actually delivering. >> when you say you shouldn't make promises that you shouldn't keep, are you talking about senator sanders when you say that in. >> well, i think there certainly have been questions raised about the numbers not adding up for his college plan or his health care plan. and those are legitimate questions that people have to be able to ask and answer. and again i would just, you know, refer to the new york daily news interview which was a very long interview and certainly in new york people
12:12 pm
read it very carefully. and it demonstrated that, you know, there weren't a lot of answers to some of the hard questions that were asked on both domestic and foreign policy. you'll have a chance to ask him about that. my goal is to keep talking about what i believe will work. and you know, i have said i will not raise taxes on middle class families because too many americans haven't recovered yet from the great rescission. and i think we can do what we need to do without having to look at that. instead we ought to be looking at making the wealthy pay their share of supporting our country. >> there's a lot of good people here from the state of pennsylvania and beyond who want to ask you questions. i'm going to get out of the way. our first question is from bob, a councilman in montgomery county, pennsylvania. >> good evening, secretary clinton. as a councilman, a volunteer councilman in a small borough,
12:13 pm
i'm concerned about how the democratic party comes together after the primary and supports candidates. >> right. >> will you say what role you would trust senator sanders in in a clinton administration? >> i can't answer that. i don't have the nomination. i'm not yet elected president. but i'm already raising money for democrats up and down the ballot. i am dedicated to electing democrats. it's something i've spent many years doing. i am a democrat and i want to see more democrats elected from you know, the small boroughs in montgomery county to philadelphia across the country. you can count on me doing that because i feel strong that we need to have a vital democratic party. we need to recruit more people to it. we need to have a bigger pipeline so that more people are taking local positions and
12:14 pm
moving up the ladder. i want to be a strong ally of elected democrats across the country. >> could i ask you to follow on to that, i said at the outset that a lot of people have talked about senator sanders putting his mark on the democratic party. how will you change the democratic party? >> well, i think that we have some good examples from our two most recent democratic presidents. i happen to be looking hard at what my husband accomplished and what president obama accomplished. and i know there are some who raise questions about how much, you know, they could have done that maybe they didn't do. but i had a front row seat both with the clinton administration and the obama administration. and i know how hard they worked and i know how much they got accomplished when they had a democratic congress. if you look at the first two years of my husband's administration, you lock at the first two years of president obama's administration, and then what happened?
12:15 pm
th they pushed through a lot of changes, pushed through regulation on guns, the affordable care act, they pushed through a lot, the dodd-frank regulations. what happened? democrats didn't show up in the med term elections. here's how i want to change the democratic party. i want to be absolutely clear that when we have a democratic president we have to support that democratic president and we have to show up in midterm elections and we have to elect governors and state legislators and county officials because that's how you have the kind of broad based political campaign and the momentum you need to get change at all levels. right now the majority of states are run by republican governors and we see what they're doing on choice, on voting rights with on lgbt rights. it makes a difference. so my job will be to make sure that the democratic party is producing results through our elected officials electing more
12:16 pm
democrats and then convincing our supporters to turn out and vote in midterm elections. >> what's the democratic party doing wrong now that that's not happening? >> we have a party that's focused on presidential elections. that is just the way it seems to historically play out. >> you think that can be change snd. >> i do absolutely think it can be changed. i want to have the kind of emphasis on reaching out to voters and concerned citizens and elected officials that doesn't just happen every four years, it happens every month of every year. and that is -- you take a lesson from what the republicans have done. they're in trouble right now but they never quit working on electing republicans, on creating the kind of base that they need to put people into office and we need to be doing exactly the same thing. >> we have lots more questions ahead for if you. we're going to take a quick break. we'll be right back with secretary clinton. stay with us. the pursuit of healthier.

12:20 pm
welcome back to philadelphia. welcome back to our msnbc town hall with democratic front-runner hillary clinton. let's get to more questions from our audience. >> we've got' va here, a democrat and undecided. >> hi, secretary clinton. i was born and raised in harlem, new york to parents who struggled and suffered from drug abuse and poverty. like many black women, most of the men in my family have been in jail. when i was born my father held me and said you're going to get
12:21 pm
an education because, like you, he believed that education was the great equalizer. so i went to college and graduated with honors. i'm a practicing attorney and despite the fact that i am intelligent, articulate and ambitious i face racism discrimination by a profession that's almost 90% white. what as president would you do and what initiatives and programs you would institute to address the racial and systemic racism that exists and creates a glass ceiling for many 20-somethings like me. >> you are absolutely right. we are still facing and struggling with systemic racism. it's true in employment and promotion and other job opportunities. it's true in education. it's true in health care. it's true in the criminal justice system. that's why i talk about breaking down all the barriers.
12:22 pm
we have economic barriers to be sure, but we have very entrenched barriers of discrimination. we have to talk about it more and as a white person i have to talk about it more and say that we are not a post-racial society. we still struggle with racism and it is -- it is not only wrong, but it is holding us back because for every young woman like yourself, ready, willing, able to get to work who is held back, that not only hurts you, it hurts us. we want as productive a society as possible. so we have to enforce the civil rights laws. we have to use the bully pulpit which i intend to use to speak out against racism to talk to organizations to speak up and say we still have work to do. when i was a young lawyer, i
12:23 pm
chaired the commission on women in the profession because there's also a lot of sexism still and even though we came up with a lot of good recommendations, we still haven't fully implemented them and people still are not being treated fairly based on gender, based on race. so i want to enforce the laws and make it clear this is unacceptable. i want to speak out about it and then i want to call people into the white house because one of the great powers of the president is to be the convener in chief. bring people in and say you have got do more and here are ideas that we have that have worked and you have to try to implement those. that's exactly what i intend to do because i don't want to see any young person held back because of any of these barriers and so i'm going to try to tackle all of them head on. >> thank you very much. [ applause ] >> our next question is from jar rad anderson, a registered democrat saying he is leaning
12:24 pm
toward you. >> good evening, secretary clinton. so your opponent has been a strong supporter of the $15 national minimum wage, you have stood firm in your position that the federal minimum wage should be no more than $12 an hour. >> uh-huh. >> in a city like philadelphia a significant number of citizens work minimum wage jobs and struggle paycheck to pay check just to make ends meet. >> right. >> so if you were elected president, what would you tell these workers is the basis for denying them the additional $3 an hour. >> first of all, let me say this because i think the facts are important here. the facts are obviously critical.
12:25 pm
i have supported the fight for $15. i supported raising the minimum wage in los angeles, in seattle, in new york city and i stood with governor cuomo after he passed a $15 minimum wage increase in new york. so what i have said is i wanted to align myself with the democratic members of the senate who have come around to a $12 national level, but i want to go higher than that in any place that will go higher than that, that's why i have supported these cities and states. in fact, in new york, which senator sanders and others have called a model, it works the way that i think it should. you will get to $15 faster in the city than you will in the small towns and rural areas upstate. in philadelphia you can probably get faster to $15 than you can in rural places in pennsylvania. so my goal is to raise the bottom. getting to $12, since we are at $7.25, would be a major accomplishment. and the real difference is not between senator sanders and myself, we both want to raise the minimum wage, the difference
12:26 pm
is with republicans who do not and donald trump who says wages are too high in america. i think the battle has to be with democrats who want to raise it and on the front lines doing so and with the republicans who refuse to acknowledge the terrible struggles that people are facing because you can't -- if it's $7.25, $9.50, $10 is not enough, so i'm going to continue to fight for $15, but i did go along with the other democrats in the senate who did a lot of work on this because if you have different parts of the country where they're not going to move off of $7.25 and get everybody to $12 and index it to the cost of living so we don't have to keep voting on it and it just keeps going up and we will solve this problem once and for all. >> thank you. >> we have a question now from a democrat who says he is
12:27 pm
undecided. >> good evening. secretary clinton we've heard ways in which we might expect a clinton presidency to be similar to president obama's, but what's some points of differentiation that we might expect. >> i agree with a lot of what president obama has done and i don't think he gets the credit he deserves for all that's accomplished and in particular saving our economy from what could have been a great depression. people now don't really remember how bad off we were so i do want to build, but there are things that i want to go further on. i want to really make a big, big push on equal pay for women. this has to finally be accomplished. and i believe that if we start early and we are absolutely determined, we can make a big change there. i want to make a big push for early childhood education because we can talk all we want
12:28 pm
about our schools, but if children come not prepared or able to learn, we're never going to close the achievement gap. i will make a big push for affordable college, debt-free tuition and to pay down student debt by allowing students to refinance their debt and i want to get the government out of the business of making money off of lending money to students. i just disagree with that and i will build on the affordable care act, but i want to tackle the prescription drug costs and make sure that medicare gets the authority to negotiate for lower drug costs and those costs are then spread throughout our health care system and i will make a very big push on mental health and addiction. we are not doing enough in either area and we're paying a very big price and then finally
12:29 pm
let me just quickly say when it comes to criminal justice reform, i want to build on some of the recommendations that president obama's policing commission has made because i think that we've got to do more to retrain our police forces. we have to get best practices from those departments that have good records. we have to make sure that we deal with the -- what is called the school to prison pipeline and turn it into a cradle to college pipeline and also go right after incarceration and then i really support everything president obama said he would do through regulation on guns, but we're going to start the very first day and tackle the gun lobby to try to reduce the outrageous number of people who are dying from gun violence in our country and i will take that on. >> let me just follow up with you briefly on the guns issue. i was struck here in philadelphia the front page of the enquirer today is half about this race that you're in and
12:30 pm
half about another shooting, a shooting in a church in montgomery county. we just had eight people killed in ohio. six people killed in georgia. president obama says it's the greatest frustration of his presidency that he hasn't been able to do more to stop gun violence in this country, and i know what your platform is, but what do you think you can get done that he has not been able to do. >> in the last months he has come out with some very tough regulations and getting those implemented, i hope he gets them done before he leaves, but i will make sure they are. they're executive orders. they have to be reintroduced and signed with a new president. this will give us a base we haven't had before to build on. if we take back the senate, which i believe we can and you here in pennsylvania have a real opportunity to help us take back the senate by electing a
12:31 pm
democrat, the democrats have decided they will be led by chuck schumer and chuck schumer has been one of the most effective legislators in taking on the gun lobby. we worked together to get the brady bill passed during my husband's administration. i think it's the kind of issue you have to start early, you have to work on it every day and we need to make it a voting issue. we were talking about people not showing up in mid-terms. that's when you can hold legislators, members of congress accountable with if they continue to be intimidated by the gun lobby. here in pennsylvania and i see my friend there, the legislator in pennsylvania has passed some of the worse kinds of legislation favoring the gun lobby. it's outrageous. you have killings going on in
12:32 pm
philadelphia and last weekend four people were killed. there was a man executed on the streets here in philadelphia talking to somebody running for office. this is out of control. if anything else we're killing 33,000 americans a year. we would all be working as hard as we could to save lives. i am determined we're going to save lives and we're going to do it by taking on the gun lobby and common sense gun measures, but we're going to do it by addressing the gun violence culture. too many young people in particular are turning to guns to settle disputes, grievances, resentments. we have to help young people to understand guns are never the answer and there has to be other ways and that's going to take all of us working in our schools, working through our churches and houses of worship. we have to break the grip of the gun culture on our young people because the number one leading cause of death for young
12:33 pm
african-american men are guns. it outranks the next nine together. this is a health issue, a safety issue, a cultural issue and i'm going at it from the first day and we're going to make it clear this has to be a voting issue. if you care about this issue vote against people who give in to the nra and the gun lobby all the time. >> we've got more with secretary hillary clinton. our town hall continues in just a moment. we'll be right back. you show up. you stay up. you listen. you laugh. you worry. you do whatever it takes to take care of your family. and when it's time to plan for your family's future, we're here for you. we're legalzoom, and for over 10 years we've helped families just like yours with wills and living trusts. so when you're ready, start with us. doing the right thing has never been easier.

12:40 pm
fixodent and forget it. we're back in beautiful philadelphia with former secretary of state hillary clinton who is joining us on the eve of another big primary day. five states voting tomorrow including pennsylvania. thank you again. this has been a lot of fun so far. our audience has more for you. we're going to start with a registered democrat who is
12:41 pm
undecided. >> there's been a lot of talk about feminism and how it should influence our voting. so what does it mean to you to be a feminist? >> i believe i am a feminist because i believe that women deserve the same rights as men in every aspect of our economy and our society here at home and around the world. and i've devoted -- i've devoted a lot of my public life to advocating for women's rights being human rights and making the case that we have to do everything we can through laws, regulations, culture, to change the still existing stereotypes that hold women back.
12:42 pm
and i think it's also really important to recognize that we have made progress, but we are still a long way from where we need to be and i know that if you look at pay for example, equal pay is still a problem and it's a problem that gets worse as you get older. so young women coming right into the workforce often are paid pretty close to equal, if not actually equally, but within a few years there begins to be a disparity and it's hard to explain all of the difference because people claim, well, it's women make different choices and therefore they have a different kind of work life because of those choices, but that does not explain all of it. and i was with lily ledbetter a few days ago outside of
12:43 pm
philadelphia and she was talking about how she never knew she was paid 40% less than the men doing exactly the same job in the factory that she worked in. now, what did that mean? it meant that her family was cheated. it's not just a women's issue. if you have a wife, daughter, sister, who is working and they're not treated fairly, the whole family suffers, but so does the economy. the other thing lily said that is struck me because she was paid less she will be paid less when she gets social security which she's now on. she's paid less because in her 401(k) not as much money was put in as was put in for everyone else. this has effects on women's live and their well-being. i think we have to keep hammering the point. i remember when i came back from making my speech in beijing, i went on one of the international radio programs that the united
12:44 pm
states sponsors and we were taking calls from around the world and i got a call from the middle east and this man said what do you mean women have the same rights as men and i said i want you to shut your eyes and imagine everything you do what i mean is that every women should have the same right to do everything you do. and that's how we need to really stand up and speak out and we have to start early because a lot of little girls as they become teenagers they begin to suffer all of these pressures on social media, you're not good enough, you're not pretty enough, you're not this, you're not that. stop it. we need to build the confidence of our children, both girls and boys, to be able to go out into a complicated world and chart their own futures.

>> canada have a new prime minister, justin trudeau. he promised when he took office that he would have a cabinet that was 50% women and then he did it. he made good on his promise. would you make that same pledge? >> i am going to have a cabinet that looks like america and 50% of america is women. >> so that's a yes? i want to introduce you now to -- >> what did you say? >> let this is outside of our format but let he rephrase the question for you. tell me if i get it right. asking about women and families in family detention, immigration detention. >> yes, i'm against that. i'm against that. i've been against it for a long time. i said we should end family detention. we should end private detentions and private detention centers. they are wrong. we should end raids and roundups and when i'm president we're going to get comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship so we will end all of these problems at the time we are successful.

>> i'm going to bring in ed morgan. do we have him here? he's a registered democrat. he's undecided. he's also a former letter carrier who works as a political organizer for the letter carrier's union. thank you for being here. >> i'd like to ask your plan about keeping working class jobs in pennsylvania from going overseas and out of state. >> i have a really robust jobs plan and let me tell you about it because it includes exactly what you're asking about. first we need a much bigger investment and infrastructure jobs. they can't be exported. they have to be done in pennsylvania. so roads, bridges, tunnels, water systems, airport, we can employ millions of people over a ten-year period. secondly, we need to bring back advanced manufacturing to pennsylvania. how are we going to cothat? schapg the incentives in the tax
12:47 pm
code and override the incentives in the trade agreements that enable people to take jobs and move them oversees. instead have them bring jobs back. what we're finding, we're finding that this will economic benefit to cothat. i want to insent rise them. and if any company in pennsylvania ever took a penny of taxpayer dollar in tax abatements or grants or loans or anything that they got from the taxpayers, and if they move jobs out overseas, they're going to have to pay all of that back before they're permitted to leave. we are also going to look at how we use clean renewable energy to create more jobs. we have to deal with that. somebody is going to be the 21st century super power. i want it to be us because there will be a lot of jobs that have to be done right here in america. and finally, look, when i was a senator from new york, i stood up for a lot of workers, particularly union workers, who
12:48 pm
were being disadvantaged by unfair trade around the world. and i took after china, took after some of these other countries. i am absolutely committed to making sure that we don't let those kinds of unfair trade practices cost us jobs anymore. so i'm going to take a lot of actions that will prevent that kind of exodus of jobs and make those countries and those companies pay a price. that's the way to change their behavior and that's what i intend to do. >> we're going to take a quick break right now. we'll be right back with more former secretary of state hillary clinton live from philadelphia.

i accept i'm not 22. i accept i do a shorter set these days. i even accept i have a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. but i won't play anything less than my best. so if there's something better than warfarin, i'm going for it. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin, plus it had significantly less major bleeding than warfarin... eliquis had both... that's what i wanted to hear. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... ...and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop.
12:50 pm
seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i accept i don't play ...quite like i used to. but i'm still bringing my best. and going for eliquis. reduced risk of stroke plus less major bleeding. ask your doctor... ...if switching... ...to eliquis is right for you. unless you have allergies. flonase is the first and only nasal spray approved to relieve both itchy, watery eyes and congestion. no other nasal allergy spray can say at. go ahead, embrace those beautiful moments. flonase changes everything. one...is all it takes...... ...to turn the tables. crest 3d white toothpaste... ...removes 5 times more stains... ...than the red box. for a smile like that, crest 3d white... is the way to whiten. kellogg's® frosted 8 layers of wheat... and one that's sweet. for the adult and kid in all of us.

we take you live to california. that's the site of the california republican party convention. at the moment right now we're going to drop in to governor pete wilson that just took the podium moments ago. let's take a listen. >> i was running. let me tell you this time i am not running but it is the most important election ever. there is more of value. there is more threat to that value than at any time perhaps
12:53 pm
not just in this sen from tribut in the proceeding one. the most urgent threat facing our next president will be the dangerous national security legacy of the obama administration. ted cruz has already proven himself in the united states senate as a champion or a strong national defense. more on that in a moment but the point is we really dare not suffer a disastrous third obama term in office. we cannot afford either the domestic bully law or the foreign policy wimp. we can't risk another four years
12:54 pm
of weak foreign policy that has invited aggression and concept from our enemies and has earned the distrust and disaffection of our former allies. well, as a seasoned member of this united states senate armed services committee, ted cruz does not need any tutoring on the clear and present dangers to america's national security. [ applause ] and the next president of the united states will have as many as five supreme court vacancies in his or her first term.
12:55 pm
we know what kind of justices hillary clinton would nominate. heaven knows what justices donald trump would pick. what we can know to a certainty is that ted cruz will choose judges who will interpret the law and not legislate it. [ applause ] >> his sterling record as chief justice, the brilliant clerk to chief justice and as solicitor general of texas for ample evidence that he is committed to preserving our constitutional liberties. you know, we can't afford a wildcard when it comes to a
12:56 pm
president who will be making critically important supreme court appointments. let alone hillary clinton. whose liberal democratic appointees will be believers in a living constitution which enables them to justify expanding the powers of the federal government that is not found in the constitution at the cost of shrinking citizen liberty. hillary's supreme court would have little concern and less restraint on the excesses of presidential overreaching and be lax on enforcement of the doctrine of separation of powers. ted cruz does not need tutoring to understand the constitution of the united states.
12:57 pm
he is, in fact, superbly qualified right now to teach it and more important right now to make brilliant appointments to the court to preserve our freedoms. to safe guard the protection of the first amendment, the second amendment, all the bill of rights and the entire constitution. and by the way, ted knows something that you and i know but that the mainstream media just won't write. he is not anti-immigrant. it's for legal immigration of the kind that made this country great. and i might point out he is
12:58 pm
hardly anti-latino. but it isn't just the presidency and the supreme court that are at stake. so too are the republican majorities in the house and senate. my friends, we cannot afford a republican nominee that brings us down to december mags of our 2014 midterm games. >> and we can't afford a nominee losing women voters at a far greater rate even than hillary clinton is using men and millennials. we need to expand and grow our senate majority for countless reasons. and most urgently we need a
12:59 pm
senate majority to check against the appointment of a liberal support court majority and we need a republican congress to repeal and replace obamacare. and not with hilary care. not with a single payer system but with genuine competition and patient choice so that, in fact. you can keep your doctor. now all of these critical goals require a winning candidate. my friends that winning candidate and i hope the republican choice in california will be and i feel confident that it will be senator ted cruz.
1:00 pm
ted has keen intelligence, extensive knowledge and his belief that all of america should be and can make him our strongest champion to articulate and win what is at stake in this most important of elections. never has the primary election been so critical to the future of our nation. why? just as in the crucial moment when ronald reagan rescued america from jimmy
