and work hard, but root now an awful lot of people feel there is less and less respect for the work they do. and less respect for them peri period. democrats, we are the party of working people. (cheers and applause). >> but we haven't done a good enough job showing we get what you're going through and we're going to do something to help. so tonight i want to tell you how we will empower americans to live better lives. my primary mission as president will be to create more opportunity and more good jobs with rising wages right here in the united states! (cheers and applause). >> from my first day in office to my last, especially in places that for too long have been left
out and left behind, from our inner cities to small towns, from indian country to cole country. (cheers and applause). >> from communities ravaged by addiction, to regions hallowed out by plant closures and here's what i believe. i believe america thrives when the middle class thrives. i believe our economy isn't working way it should because our democracy isn't working the way it should. (cheers and applause). >> that's why we need to appoint supreme court justices who will get money out of politics and expand voting rights, not restrict them! (cheers and applause). >> and if necessary we will pass a constitutional amendment to
overturn citizens united! (cheers and applause). >> i believe american corporations that have gotten so much from our country should be just as patriotic in return. (cheers and applause). >> many of them are, but too many aren't. it's wrong to take tax breaks with one hand and give out pink slips with the other. (cheers and applause). >> and i believe wall street can never ever be allowed to wreck main street again! (cheers and applause). >> and i believe in science. (cheers and applause).
>> i believe climate change is real. and that we could save our planet while creating millions of good-paying clean-energy jobs. (cheers and applause). >> i believe that when we have millions of hard-working immigrants contributing to our economy it would be self-defea self-defeating and inhumane to try to kick them out! (cheers and applause). >> comprehensive immigration reform will grow our economy and keep families together and it's the right thing to do. (cheers and applause). >> so whatever party you belong to or if you belong to no party at all, if you share these beliefs, this is your campaign.
(cheers and applause). >> if you believe that companies should share profits, not pad executive bonuses, join us. (cheers and applause). >> if you believe the minimum wage should be a living wage no one working full time should have to raise their children in poverty. join us. (cheers and applause). >> if you believe that every man, woman and child in america has the right to affordable health care, join us. (cheers and applause). >> if you believe that we should say no to unfair trade deals that we should stand up to china, that we should support our steal workers and auto work considers and home grown
manufacturers, then join us! (cheers and applause). >> if you believe we should expand social security and protect a woman's right to make her own health care decisions, then join us! (cheers and applause). >> and yes -- yes, if you believe that your working mother, wife, sister or daughter deserves equal pay, join us! (cheers and applause). >> that's how we're going to make sure this economy works for everyone. not just those at the top. now, you didn't hear any of this, did you, from donald trump at this convention? >> no!
>> he spoke for 70 odd minutes and i do mean odd -- (laughter). (cheers and applause). >> -- and he offered zero solutions, but we already know. he doesn't believe these things. no wonder he doesn't like talking about his plans. you might have noticed i love talking about mine. chops chop. >> in my first hundred days we will work with both parties to pass the biggest investment in new good-paying jobs since world war ii. (cheers and applause). >> jobs in manufacturing, clean energy, technology and innovation, small business and infrastructure. if we invest in infrastructure now, we'll not only create jobs today but lay the foundation for the jobs of the future.
and we will also transform the way we prepare our young people for those jobs. bernie sanders and i will work together to make college tuition free for the middle class and debt free for all! (cheers and applause). >> we will also -- we will also liberate millions of people who already have student debt. (cheers and applause). >> it's just not right that donald trump can ignore his debts and students and families can't refinance their debts! (cheers and applause). >> and something we don't say often enough. sure, college is crucial, but a four-year degree should not be
the only path to good job. (cheers and applause). >> we will help more people learn a skill or practice a trade and make a good living doing it. (cheers and applause). >> we will give small businesses like my dad's a boost. make it easier to get credit. way too many dreams die in the parking lots of banks. in america, if you can dream it, you should be able to build it. (cheers and applause). >> and we will help you balance family and work, you know what, if fighting for affordable child care and paid family leave is playing the woman card, then deal me in! chops chop.
>> now, here's the other thing. hillary! hillary! >> we're not only -- we're not only going to make all of these investments we're going to pay for every single one of them. and here's how. wall street, corporations and the super rich are going to start paying their fair share of tacks. (cheers and applause). >> this is not because we resent success. but when more than 90% of the gains have gone to the top 1%, that's where the money is. and we are going to follow the money.
(cheers and applause). >> if companies take tax breaks and shift jobs overseas, we'll make them pay us back and we'll put that money to work where it belongs creating jobs here at home. (cheers and applause). >> now, i imagine that some of you are sitting at home thinking, well, that all sounds pretty good, but how are you going to get it done? how are you going to break through the gridlock in washington? well, look at my record. i've worked across the aisle to pass laws and treaties and to launch new programs that help millions of people. and if you give me the chance, that's exactly what i'll do as president. (cheers and applause). >> but then -- but then i also imagine people are thinking out there, but trump, he's a businessman. he must know something about the
economy. >> no! >> well, let's take closer look, shall we? in atlantic city 60 miles from here you will find contractors and small businesses who lost everything because donald trump refused to pay his bills. >> boo! >> now, remember, what the president said last night. don't boo, vote. (cheers and applause). >> think of this people who did the work and needed the money not because he couldn't pay them but because he won pay them. he just stiffed them, and you know that sales pitch he's making to be president, put your faith in him and you'll win big, that's the same sales pitch he made to all those small
businesses. then trump walked away and left working people holding the bag. he also talked a big game about putting america first. well please explain what part of america first leads him to make trump ties in china, not colorado, trump suits in mexico, not michigan. trump' furniture in turkey, not ohio. trump's picture frames in india, not wisconsin. donald trump says he wants to make america great again. well he can start by actually making things in america again! (cheers and applause). >> now the choice we face in this election is just as stark when it comes to our national security.
>> hillary! >> hillary! hillary! >> you know anyone -- anyone reading the news can see the threats and turbulence we face from baghdad to kabul to nice and paris and brussels from san bernardino to orlando. we're dealing with determined enemies that must be defeated. >> it's no wonder people are anxious and looking for reassurance. looking for steady leadership, wanting a leader who understands we are stronger when we work with our allies around the world and care for our veterans here at home. (cheers and applause). >> keeping our nation safe and honoring the people who do that work will be my highest priori
priority. i'm proud that we put a lid on iran's nuclear program without firing a single shot. chops cho(cheers and applause). >> now, we have to enforce it and we must keep supporting israel's security. (cheers and applause). >> i'm proud
that we shaped a global climate agreement. now we have to hold every country accountable to their commitment including ourselves. hillary! >> and i'm proud to stand by our allies in nato against any threat they face including from russia. (cheers and applause). >> i've laid out my strategy for defeating isis. we will strike their sanctuaries from the air and support local
courses taking them out on the ground. we will surge our intelligence so we detect and prevent attacks before they happen. we will disrupt their efforts online to reach and radicalize young people in our country. (cheers and applause). >> it won't be easy or quick. but make no mistake, we will prevail. chops chop. >> now, donald trump -- donald
trump says and this is a quote, i know more about isis than the generals do. no, donald, you don't. (cheers and applause). >> he thinks -- he thinks he knows more than our military because he claimed our armed forces are a disaster. boo! >> well, i've had the privilege
to work closely with our troops and our veterans for many years including as a senator on the armed services committee and i know how wrong he is. our military is a national treasure. we entrust our commander in chief to make the hardest decisions our nation faces. decisions about war and peace, life and death. a president should respect the men and women who risk their lives to serve our country! (cheers and applause). >> including -- and concluding captain cahn and the sons of tim kaine and mike pence both marines. >> so just ask yourself, you really think donald trump has the temperment to be commander in chief? >> no!
>> donald trump can't even handle the rough and tumble of a presidential campaign. (cheers and applause). >> he loses his cool at the slightest provocation. when he's gotten a tough question from a reporter, when he's challenged in debate, when he see as protester at a rally. imagine if you dare imagine,
imagine him in the oval office facing a real crisis. a man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons. (cheers and applause). >> i can't put it -- i can't put it any better than jackie kennedy after the cuban missile crisis. she said that what worried
president kennedy during that very dangerous time was that a war might be started, not by big men with self-control and restraint, but by little men the ones moved by fear and pride. (cheers and applause). >> america's strength doesn't come from lashing out. it relies on smarts, judgment, cool, resolve and the precise and strategic application of power and that's the kind of commander in chief i pledge to be. (cheers and applause). >> if we're serious about keeping our country safe, we also can't afford to have a president who is in the pocket of the gun
lobby. (cheers and applause).
>> i'm note here to repeal the second amendment. i'm not here to take away your guns. i just don't want you to be shot by someone who shouldn't have gun in the first place. (cheers and applause). >> we will tirelessly with responsible gun owners to pass common sense reforms and keep guns out of the hands of criminals, terrorists and all others who would do us harm. you know for decades people have said this issue was too hard to solve and the politics too hot to touch.
but i ask you, how can we just stand by and do nothing? you heard, you saw family members of people killed by gun violence on this stage. you heard, saw family members of police officers killed in the line of duty because they were out gunned by criminals. i refuse to believe we can't find common ground here. we have to heal the divides in our country, not just on guns, but on race, immigration and more. (cheers and applause). >> and that starts with listening. listening to each other. trying as best we can to walk in each other's shoes. let's put ourselves in the shoes of young black and latino men and women who face the effects
of systemic racism and are made to feel like their lives are disposable. (cheers and applause). >> let's put ourselves in the shoes of police officers kissing they are kids and spouses goodbye every day heading off to do a dangerous and necessary j job. we will reform our criminal justice system from end to end, and rebuild trust between law enforcement and the communities they serve. (cheers and applause). >> and we will defend, we will defend all our rights, civil rights, human rights and voting rights, women's rights and workers rights, lgbt rights and the rights of people with dissables. (cheers and applause).
>> and we will stand up against mean and divisive rhetoric wherever it comes from. you know, for the past year, many people made the mistake of laughing off donald trump's comments. excusing him as an entertainer just putting on show. they thought he couldn't possibly mean all the horrible things he says. like when he called women pigs or said that an american judge couldn't be fair because of his mexican heritage. or when he mocked and mimicked a reporter with a disability or insults prisoners of war like john mccain a hero and patriot who deserves our row spec. (cheers and applause). >> now, at first -- at first i admit, i couldn't believe he meant it either. it was just too hard to fathom.
that someone who wants to lead our nation could say those things, could be like that, but here's the sad truth. there is no other donald trump. this is it. and in the end, it comes down to what donald trump doesn't get. america is great because america is good. (cheers and applause). >> so enough with the bigotry and the bomb bash donald trump is not offering real change, he's offering empty promises, and what are we offering? a bold agenda to improve the lives of people across our country! (cheers and applause). >> to keep you save torque get you good jobs, to get your kids the opportunities they deserve. (cheers and applause). >> the choice is clear, my
friends. every generation of americans has come together to make our country freer, fairer and stronger. 91 much us ever have or can do it alone. i know that at a time when so much seems to be pulling us apart, it can be hard to imagine how we'll ever pull together. but i'm here to tell you tonight progress is possible. i know, i know because i've seen it in the lives of people across america who get knock down and get right back up. and i know it -- i know it from my own life. more than a few times i've had to pick myself up and get back in the game. (cheers and applause). >> like so much else in my life, i got this from my mother, too. she never let me back down from
any challenge. when i tried to hide from a neighborhood bully she literally blocked the door. go back out there, she said. and she was right. you have to stand up to bullies. you have to keep working to make things better even when the odds are long and the opposition is fierce. we lost our mother a few years ago but i miss her every day and i still hear her voice urging me to keep working, keep fighting for right no matter what. that's what we needed to together as a nation accident took place. (cheers and applause). >> and though we may not live to see the glory as the song from the musical hamilton goes, let us gladly join the fight, let our legacy be about planting seeds in garden you never get to see. that's why we're here.
not just in this haul, but on this earth. the founders showed us that. and so have many others since. they were drawn together by love of country and the selfless passion to build something better for all who follow. that is the story of america and we begin a new chapter tonight. yes, the world is watching what we do. yes, america's destiny is ours to choose. so let's be stronger together, my fellow americans! (cheers and applause). >> let's look to the future with courage and confidence, let's build a better tomorrow for our beloved children and our beloved country, and when we do, america will be greater than ever. thank you and may god bless you and the united states of america! (cheers and applause) ♪
