tv Sen. David Perdue at Faith Freedom Coalition Conference - Part 3 CSPAN June 8, 2018 10:09pm-10:22pm EDT
house to make all those tax cuts for individuals last not tenuous but permanently. every democrat will have -- [applause] they will have one more opportunity to vote against this and remind you they don't like you very much and they will take that opportunity. in addition to that i believe we will see an executive order out of the secretary of treasury to index capital gains for inflation. you no longer pay capital gain tax on the part of the value of your house or your land or stocks that is inflation. we will end by regulation the tax on inflation and cut it in half in this country. we made tremendous progress in
removing in the right direction and there is more tax reduction to be done and the president said he wants the tax cut every year and will keep winning. thank you. [applause] ♪ [cheering and applause] >> thank you. it is such an honor for me to be here again at the faith and freedom coalition. i want to thank ralph and his family for everything they've done and for what they do in my home state of georgia and around the world. i heard there were a few georgian folks today, is that right? [cheering and applause] today, president trumps agenda is working. last year he said that job one was going to the economy we worked on regulation, energy and
taxes. this year we just past the dodd frank bill that frees up capital for our small banks and local communities and it will have an earth shattering impact on local communities. all of this is rena from $6 trillion of capital back into our economy. i'm just a business guy but i can tell you this agenda is working. we have to million new jobs have been created since president trump took office and 870 regulations have been reversed consumer and co confidence is at 820 year high and i'm proud to stand before you today and tell you that because of a bipartisan bill be passed in the senate 1550 people have been fired at the va for not taking care of our veterans. [cheering and applause] another statistic that i'm proud of and this affects lives is that today african-american unemployment is at the lowest level it's been in the united states history. [applause] and probably most important of
all, i think, is when the great recession hit us back in 2008 and 2009 millions of people lost their jobs and lost hope and today because of president trumps agenda 900,000 people have found work regained self-confidence and rejoined the workforce. there is no question that we haven't turned the tide of drift to socialism in america and who would've ever believe that we would have a presidential candidate who had the gall at the soviet union was filled in all the socialism experiments have failed on the world who would have believed we have a presidential candidate talking about it but we stem that tied with president trump and we can never take that for granted. today i want to talk about different threat one we cannot ignore. we are facing another challenge for the next two years it will not go away the struggle in the world will be between, i believe, self-determination which is what we stand for in state control. last month would have been karel marks 200 birthday and one
country built, paid for in a shipped huge statue of marx to his birthplace in germany and that country was the people's republic of china and china today and this underscores how dedicated they are to continue the principles of communism around the world today china is the world's second-largest economy of $12 trillion and rapidly build up its military and charted plans for economic dominance in the made in china 2025 is a plan that poses a threat to american leadership in technology and social endeavors. i used to live there and this is real and they are one belt one road initiative is the largest info structure investment since the marshall plan after world war ii.
at the same time the chinese government commitment to total control of its people is strengthening at an ever increasing rate today and i was just over there and in march of this year president xi consolidated power and became president for life just like mao. in april, the chinese government continued its crackdown on christianity by banning online bible sales and today the bible is the only major religious text that you cannot buy commercially in the people's republic of china and that's unacceptable in addition the chinese government is creating a social credit score. listen to this. i don't thank you seen this in the western media yet today but this is real. they are developing a social credit score on every individual in china and it's based on how well they conform to state standards. they use a national network of 176 million cameras to monitor their citizens and using computerized facial recognition and artificial intelligence they can identify and attain people for reeducation. think about that. within two years one fifth of the publication of the world and
they all happen to be chinese is going to have an arbitrary government score that potentially restricts their freedom. to me that is terrifying. [inaudible] people have thought the giving china access to our market and increasing the standing in the world would make the country freer, more capitalistic and lean toward our values. we have all been very wrong. china's leaders today" proverbs from 36 chinese strategists were developed during the war in states and the chinese history between 400 bc and 408d. china sees them as the world hegemon and use propaganda to convince the rest of the world that america is today's aggressor. confucius once said that cannot
be two sons in the sky. nor to emperors on the earth. we've clearly see what their vision is for the world. to deal with this right we've got to take care of what god has given us here in the united states and america is still the longeslargest economy in the wo. we have the starkest military in world history in america is still the innovating engine of humankind history in america is still the freedom around the world. president tom, thanks to you, is in the white house and not hillary clinton. [cheering and applause] i thank god for a lot of things but i think ever thank god everr that. president trump engages the world and reassuring our allies
and reassuring and reasserting american leadership and priorities. we don't want to be the hegemon but we stand for freedom and there are some of the people around the world that i met in the last three years that depend on us for encouragement and support because they are fighting for their freedoms. trump is rebuilding our economy, our military and global alliances after eight years of withdrawal for the international scene. he understands it's the future of our of public and it's at stake. donald trump understands that the republic that our republic is at stake. i hope to deliver that message to you. that's why randy nitrates on it. those of you from georgia know this is not a new message for me. i fully believe. [applause] trump has called out china's theft of our intellectual property and where was the last president in dealing with this issue and donald trump has brought china to the trade table and secured their help with north korea when you pray for him this weekend as he go to singapore. [applause] to protect our freedoms into deal with the china, washington
has got to start thinking long-term however. in 1789 when george washington took office as our first president china had indeed the largest economy in the world at the time and not many americans know that. now they are aiming to reclaim what they believe is the rightful place in the world order and us in the process. want to protect our freedoms we cannot ignore this anymore but pay attention to the drive from china. we also need to change the way washington does business including solving our most insidious and dangerous issues and that is our debt crisis. fully committed before i leave here that we are going to have a plan and develop a plan to give us financial security again. [applause] i think the time is come and i have said this this is my third speech here with you guys and i can tell you not giving up on
this one. it's finally time we bring [inaudible] to the united states congress. [applause] some people around the world call this american arrogance and i don't but we can no longer call our position in the world for granted and we know the importance of freedom and know god is the source of our freedom and that self-determination is always trump state control for such termination to around the world it has to in your home first because we are at the bastian for strength around the world. meetings like this are critical. people watch what you do here and they are encouraged by what we do everyday president trump is committed to defending our rights under the constitution including freedom of speech, freedom of religion and yes, freedom to bear arms. however -- [applause] >> we cannot become complacent.
over the last 100 years america has been on a slow slide toward liberal progressive policies, bigger government, more government spending, and yes, less personal freedom. when a judge has asked the pastor for his sermon notes before he gives the sermon that we have a serious problem. president trump is fighting this and we have to stay united behind him and his agenda. in america we believe in our founding principles. these are just words and these are founding principles the give us the freedoms we have today. economic opportunity and fiscal responsibility and limited government and individual liberty. 4 miles from where we sit today carved into stone in one of our most cherished memorials are the following words, god gave us life give us liberty. can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed the conviction for those liberties
are the gift of god and thomas jefferson, 1790. those words cannot be more truer today. there's no doubt we face challenges around the world at home in our liberties but history has shown they must be fought for, protected and passed on to our other generations so they can do the same thing. the united states is definitely the leader of the free world thanks to you. if committed to self determination and freedom we can release a new era of very around the world, not just here at home. we did not choose this responsibility. i think it is our destiny together you and i can ensure america is and the world best
