she is his eldest daughter. donald trump has said about you have can have a that he counts on her heavily in his business, and that he is also leaned on her during this entire primary season and now coming up into the general election he's leaned on her incredibly heavily. >> family affair all week. you talked about the kids earlier in the week on tuesday and -- which we consider success after the first night was little bit of a problem with melania plagiarism. you had the second night his family really i think put him over the top and it was one of those things a lot of people like to see and now you've got ivanka about to introduce drum in that had give the speech a lot of people have been waiting for. it will be interest to go see how much specifics he gets into and how much does he go off script. >> we'll wait and see on that one. >> we'll bring it to you live when it happens. >> one quick thing about ivanka
one of the areas donald trump is very weak is women her age. so ivanka trump one of the big things she needs to do not just humanize her dad but appeal to that age group of women that he is incredibly weak in where hillary clinton just beats him. he's much stronger with women 50 and over. we will dip back into this and then give you the entire acceptance speech from donald trump when he takes the stage. possible toll for a new bridge over i-95 as people speaking out. hearing tonight in yardley addressed the proposal for the scudder falls bridge. when the bridge opens in three years it will connect mercer and bucks county the toll as much as $2.60 secretaries. four more chances to weigh upcoming public hearings delaware river joint toll bridge commission set to make a decision in december. tonight temple university pods president is out. week after the board issued a vote of no confidence the university says reached a deal to split president neal theobold. the mutual resolution includes theo bowl's resignation after serving three and a half years

(applause). >> together, we will lead our party back to the white house. >> yes! >> and we will lead our country back to safety, prosperity and piece! (cheers and applause). >> we will be a country of generosity and warmth, but we will also be a country of law and order.
(cheers and applause). >> our convention occurs at a moment of crisis for our nation. the attacks on our police and the terrorism of our cities threaten our very way of life. any politician who does not grasp this danger is not fit to lead our country. (cheers and applause). >> americans watching this address tonight have seen the recent images of violence in our streets and the chaos in our communities. many have witnessed this violence personally. some have even been its victims. i have a message for all of you.
the crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon and i mean very soon come to an end! (cheers and applause). >> beginning on january 20th of 2017 safety will be restored. (cheers and applause). >> the most basic duty of government is to defend the lives of its own citizens. any government that fails to do so is a government unworthy to lead. it is finally time for a straight forward assessment of the state of our nation.
(applause). >> i will present the facts plainly and honestly. we cannot afford to be so politically correct any more. (cheers and applause). >> so if you want to hear the corporate spin, the
carefully crafted lies and the media myths, the democrats are holding their convention next week. go there. (applause). >> but here at our convention,
there will be no lies. we will honor the american people with the truth and nothing else. (cheers and applause) . >> these are the facts. decades of progress made in bringing down crime are now being reversed by this administration's roll back of criminal enforcement. homicides last year increased by 17% in america's 50 largest cities. that's the largest increase in 25 years! in our nation's
capitol, killings have risen by 50%. they're up nearly 60% in nearby baltimore. in the president' hometown of chicago, more than 2,000 people have been the victim of shootings this year alone, and almost 4,000 have been killed in the chicago area since he took office. >> boo! >> the number of police officers killed in the line of duty has risen by almost 50% compared to this point last year. nearly 180,000 illegal immigrants with criminal records ordered deported from our country are tonight roaming free to threaten peaceful citizens.
the number of new illegal immigrant families who have crossed the border so far this year already exceeds the entire total from 2015. >> build a wall! >> they are being released by the tens of thousands into our communities with no regard for the impact on public safety or resources. (crowd chanting). >> one such was released and made his way to nebraska. there he ended the live of an innocent young girl named sarah
root. she was 21 years old and was killed the day after graduating from college with a 4.0 grade point average, number one in her class. her killer was then released a second time, and he is now a fugitive from the law. i've met sarah's beautiful family, but to this administration, their amazing daughter was just one more american life that wasn't worth protecting. no more. one more child to sacrifice on the order and on the altar of open borders. what about our economy? again, i will tell you, the plain facts that have been edited out of your nightly news and your
morning newspaper. nearly four in 10 african-american children are living in poverty, while 58% of african-american youth are now not employed. 2 million more latinos are in poverty today than when president obama took his oath of office less than eight years ago. another 14 million people have left the work force entirely. household incomes are down more than $4,000 since the year 2,000 that's 16 years ago, our trade deficit in goods reached nearing think of this, think of this, our trade deficit is $800 billion -- think of that.
$800 billion last year alone, we're going to fix that. (cheers and applause). >> the budget is no better. president obama has almost doubled our national debt to more than $19 trillion and growing, and yet what do we have to show for it? our roads and bridges are falling apart. our airports are third world condition and 43 million americans are on food stamps. now, let us consider the state of affairs abroad. not only have our citizens endured domestic disaster, but
they've lived through one international humiliation after another. one after another. we all remember the images of our sailors being forced to their knees by their iranian captors at gun point. this was just prior to the signing of the iran deal, which gave back to iran $150 billion and gave us absolutely nothing. >> boo! >> it will go down in history as one of the worst deals ever negotiated. another humiliation came when president obama drew a red line in syria, and the whole world knew it meant absolutely
nothing. in libya, our consulate the symbol of american prestige around the globe was brought down in flames. america is far less safe and the world is far less stable than when obama made the decision to put hillary clinton in charge of america's foreign policy. (crowd chanting). >> let's defeat her in november. (applause) .
>> i am certain that it was a decision that president obama truly regrets. her bad instincts and her bad judgment something pointed out by bernie sanders are what caused so many of the disasters unfolding today. let's review the record. (cheers and applause). >> in 2009, pre-hillary, isis was not even on the map. libya was stable. egypt was peaceful. iraq was seeing and really a big, big reduction in violence.
iran was being choked by sanctions. syria was somewhat under control. after four years of hillary clinton, what do we have? isis has spread across the region and the entire world. libya is in ruins. and our ambassador and his staff were left helpless to die at the hands of savage killers. egypt was turned over to the radical muslim brotherhood forcing the military to retake control. iraq is in chaos. iran is on the path to nuclear weapons. syria is engulfed in a civil war, refugee crisis now threatens the west. after 15 years of wars in the middle east, after trillions of dollars spent, and thousands of
lives lost, the situation is worse than it has ever been before. this is the legacy of hillary clinton. death, destruction, terrorism, and weakness. (cheers and applause. >> but hillary clinton's legacy does not have to be america's legacy. the problems we face now poverty and violence at home, war and destruction abroad, will last only as long as we continue relying on the same politicians who created them in the first place. (applause).
>> a change in leadership is required to produce a change in out comes. (cheers and applause). >> tonight i will share with you my plan for action for america. the most important difference between our plan and that of our opponent' social security that our plan will put america first! (cheers and applause) . >> american i not global i will
be our creed dough as as long as we are led by politicians who will not put america first, then we can be assured that other nations will not treat america with respect, the respect that we deserve! (cheers and applause). >> the american people will come first once again. (cheers and applause). >> my plan will begin with safety at home, which means safe neighborhoods, secure borders and protection from terrorism. there can be no prosperity without law and order!
(cheers and applause). >> on the economy, i will outline reforms to add millions of new jobs and trillions in new wealth that can be used to rebuild america. (applause). >> a number of these reforms that i will outline tonight will be opposed by some of our nation's most powerful special interests. that's because these interests have rigged our political and economic system for their exclusive benefit, believe me, it's for their benefit. (applause).
>> big business, elite media and major donors are lining up behind the campaign of my opponent because they know she will keep our rigged system in place. >> they are throwing money at her because they have total control over every single thing she does. she is their puppet and they pull the strings. (cheers and applause). >> that is why hillary clinton's message is that things will never change, never ever. (laughter). >> my message is that things have to change and they have to change right now! (cheers and applause) .
>> every day i wake up determined to deliver a better life for the people all across this nation that have been ignored, neglected and abando abandoned. i have visited the laid off factory workers and the communities crushed by our horrible and unfair trade deals. these are the forgotten men and women of our country. and they are forgotten, but they're not going to be forgotten long. (cheers and applause). >> these are people who work
>> thank you. >> i have no patience for injustice. no tolerance for government incompetence of which there is so much. no sympathy for leaders who fail their citizens. when innocent people suffer because our political system lacks the will or the courage or the basic decency to enforce our laws or still worse has sold out to some corporate lobbyist for cash, i am not able to look the other way and i won't look the other way. (cheers and applause). >> and when a secretary of state illegally stores her e-mail on a private server, deletes 33,000 of them so the authorities can't see her crime, puts our country
at risk, lies about it in every different form and faces no consequence, i know that corruption has reached a level like never ever before in our country! (cheers and applause) . >> when the fbi director says that the secretary of state was extremely careless and neglect in handling our classified secrets, i also know that these terms are minor compared to what she actually did.
they were just used to save her from facing justice for her terrible, terrible crimes. (cheers and applause). >> in fact, her single greatest accomplishment may be committing such agregious crime and getting away with it especially when others who have done far less have paid so dearly. (applause). >> when that same secretary of state rakes in millions and millions of dollars trading access and favors to special interests and foreign powers, i know the time for action has come.
>> i have seen first hand how the system is rigged against our citizens just like it was rigged against bernie sanders. he never had a chance. never had a chance. but his supporters will join our movement because we will fix his biggest single issue, trade deals that strip our country of its jobs and strip us of our wealth as a country. (cheers and applause). >> millions of democrats will join our movement because we are going to fix the system so it works fairly and justly for each and every american. (cheers and applause).
>> in this cause i am proud to have at my side the next vice-president of the united states governor mike pence of indiana! (cheers and applause) . >> an great guy. we will bring the same economic success to america that mike brought to indiana which is amazing. (applause). >> he's the man of character and
accomplishment. he is the man for the job. the first task for our new administration will be to liberate our citizens from the crime and terrorism and lawlessness that threatens our communities. america was shocked to its core when our police officers in dallas were so brutally execut executed. immediately after dallas, we've seen continued threats and violence against our law enforcement officials. law officers have been shot or killed in recent days in georg georgia, missouri, wisconsin, kansas, michigan and tennessee. boo! >> on sunday, more police were gunned down in baton rouge, louisiana.
three were killed and three were very very badly injured. an attack on law enforcement is an attack on all americans! (cheers and applause) . >> i have message to every last person threatening the piece on our streets and the safety of our police. when i take the oath of office next year, i will restore law and order to our country. (cheers and applause). >> believe me, believe me.
i will work with and appoint the best and brightest prosecutors and law enforcement officials to get the job properly done. >> yes! (applause). >> in this race for the white house, i am the law and order candidate! (cheers and applause). >> the irresponsible rhetoric of our president who has used the pulpit of the presidency to divide us by race and color has made america a more dangerous
environment than frankly i have ever seen and anybody in this room has ever watched or scene. this administration has failed america's inner cities. remember, it has failed america's inner cities. (applause). >> it's failed them on educati education. it's failed them on jobs. it's failed them on crime. it's failed them in every way, and on every single level. when i am president, i will work to ensure that all of our kids are treated equally and protected equally. >> cheers and applause . >> every action i take i will ask myself, does this make better for young americans in
baltimore, in chicago, in detroit, in ferguson who have really in every way, folk, the same right to live out their dreams as any other child in america. (cheers and applause). >> any other child. to make live safe, for all of our citizens, we must also address the growing threats we face from outside the country. we are going to defeat the barbarians of isis and we're going to defeat them fast! (cheers and applause).
>> once again, france is the victim of brutal islamic terrorism. men, women and children viciously mowed down, lives ruined, families ripped apart, a nation in mourning. the damage and devastation that can be inflicted by islamic radicals has been proven over and over. at the world trade center. at an office party in san bernardino. at the boston marathon. at a military recruiting center in chattanooga, tennessee and many, many other locations. only weeks ago, in orlando, florida, 49 wonderful americans were savagely murdered by an islamic terrorist. this time the terrorist target
>> and i have to say as a republican, it is so nice to hear you cheering for what i just said. thank you. (cheers and applause). >> to protect us from terrorism, we need to focus on three things. we must have the best absolutely the best gathering of intelligence anywhere in the world. the best. (applause). >> we must abandon the failed
policy of nation building and regime change that hillary clinton pushed in iraq in libya, in egypt and in syria. instead, we must work with all of our allies who share our goal of destroying isis and stamping out islamic terrorism and doing it now, doing it quickly, we're going to win, we're going to win fast! (cheers and applause) .
>> this includes working with our greatest ally in the region, the state of israel. (cheers and applause) . >> recently, i have said that nato was obsolete because did it not properly cover terror, and also that many of the member countries were not paying their fair share. as usual, the united states has been picking up the costs. shortly thereafter, it was announced that nato will be
setting up a new program in order to combat terrorism. a true step in the right direction. (cheers and applause). >> lastly, and very importantly, we must immediately suspend immigration from any nation that has been compromised by terrorism until such time as proven vetting mechanisms have been put in place. we don't want them in our country! (cheers and applause) .
>> my opponents has called for a radical 550% increase in zero ran -- think of this. think of this. this is not believable. because this is what's happeni happening. a 550% increase in syrian refugees on top of the existing massive refugee flows coming into our country already under the leadership of president obama. boo! >> she proposes this despite the fact that there's no way to screen these refugees in order to find out who they are or where they come from. i only want to admit individuals into our country who will
