treat the vets right. i am sorry, you're fired. get out of here . right? you are fired. >> [ cheering ] >> so, those two things -- just to prove them -- the accountability was a couple of months ago. and john helped so much, i will tell you, john helped so much. >> [ applause ] >> he was a leader . he was a leader on both and everybody said you could not get accountability done. i said why? too much power, talk -- too many unions. arizona great, everybody agreed, they could not fire the people. so now you have accountability -- it is done. even more important, i am not sure, but even more important,
v.a. choice. now you go to see a doctor, when you have to -- you do not have to wait in line. okay? optimism. among america's great manufacturers. has hit 95%, the highest number, by far, in the history of the survey, which is a very old survey. we have eliminated record numbers of job killing regulations. i think maybe as important as the tax cut are the regulations. our country was choking. let me tell you, our opponents, our wonderful opponents -- when is she going to get over it? >> [ booing ]
>> when does she get over it? >> [ crowd chanting ] >> when do they get over it. but, you know it is pretty amazing, point after point, guilty, guilty, guilty, she is okay. and then they go after us for our russian hoax, the witch hunt hoax. isn't it incredible when you talk about a double standard? when you talk about a double standard. and nobody even looks at her. nobody even looks. i do not think, unless we are going to be surprised someday. we will see how that works out. but i will tell you what, what has happened is somewhat of a
miracle, because we were not expected to win, but every time i go out, we have crowds like this. we went to michigan, we went to wisconsin, we went to places that have not been done -- i think wisconsin was 1952. dwight eisenhower, and we won wisconsin. >> [ cheering ] >> and wisconsin -- i went there , and i said, i think we are going to win this state. people said to me, oh, sir, it will not happen. i said, why? look at the crowds and the people. look at the signs outside of the house. look at the sides. heard, that the president went back, he went through michigan, and he said he better get the people out to michigan. this is a trump -- there is a trump/pence sign on every house. they said, oh no, our statistics show michigan cannot be won by the republicans. let me tell you what has happened, our plants are moving
it to michigan. michigan is very happy with their president . >> [ cheering ] >> they should have listened to bill clinton. and we just had our highest -- i watched these fakers back there. >> [ booing ] >> a year and half ago, they said i was an interloper. and now they say, and he will admit, a number of polled said he is the most powerful, most popular republican in the history of the party. and a little while ago, i was an interloper. >> [ cheering ] >> they came out more popular
than men like ronald reagan. think about it, you go from interloper -- that is a horrible term. i am just doing my thing, i am not an interloper. , we have tremendous -- look at the people we endorsed. dan donovan. he was behind, we endorsed him. he won by what? 24 points or something, last night, in staten island, new york, and new york generally. congressman. last night, we had a great evening. because we watched the television, and we were winning less -- left and right. they did not know what the hell hat -- had happened. one of my biggest critics, joe crowley, got his ass kicked. >> [ cheers and applause ] >> by a young woman who had a lot of energy, a lot of energy,
i guess he did not see it. they could not find him. he spent a lot of money, he actually had a lot of money left over, everybody is pouring in a fortune, and he was going to take nancy pelosi's place, i want to keep nancy pelosi right where she is with maxine waters. i want to keep nancy pelosi, please, i want to make a plea to my democrats friends, please, please, please, do not remove nancy pelosi. she should be where she is. please? keep maxine waters on the air as your face, and/or mouthpiece for the democratic party. please. >> [ cheering ] >> maxine and nancy, so i was disappointed in a way when he got beat, because he was going
to take her place, i think. now he is looking at us and saying, darling, what happened? politics is a mean game isn't it? it is not mean, it is pleading. 6 months ago republicans passed the biggest tax cuts and reform in american history. our plan doubled the child tax credit, thank you to ivanka trump. she wanted that so badly. she really got to be a pest. dad, you have got to get child tax credits. i said nobody knows. she said, the women know. the women know. my daughter and my wife, melania, they love the women. and the women love them. the women love them.
and the men. child tax credit, people do not talk about it very much, it is substantial. you know we got it for you. we slashed taxes for working families, most of them in half. and saved our family farms, and our small businesses by eliminating the state -- estate tax in almost all cases. it is known as the death tax, and now, when you leave your small business or your farm -- you leave it to your children, your children do not have to go to the bank, borrow money, and end up losing the farm, or losing the business. >> [ cheers and applause ] >> and kevin and john and the
whole group helped us a lot. and guess what, i voted against him. okay? i voted against him. >> -- one >> heidi devos -- voted against him. she had no choice, but the day after the election, she is voting on party lines, 100%. more than 100 utility companies nationwide have pledged rices for customers, saving them into this country much more than $3 billion, which goes and reduces your electric bill. heidi and every single democrat voted against our tax cut. we are also fixated on traded deals, that have funded our wealth, gutted the communities, under what -- undermined the farmers,
taking our jobs, we are going to make trade fair and reciprocal. reciprocal. do you know what that is? they do it us, we do it to them. and we are placing very big tariffs on some of these countries, because, they have tariffs on us. it is incredible, i wonder where these people come from. even politicians. so, we will have a country, it does not matter, i can almost name any of them, they have massive tariffs on our people -- our workers and our farmers, our country and our companies. so, we say we are going to put tariffs on them. and i will actually have politicians and other people come to me -- oh, please, we want free trade. how is this free-trade? i will give you an example. china, we make a car and sell it to china.
they charge is a 25% tax. 25%. when they make a car, and sell it to the united states, and there are a lot of them, we charge them the grand total of 2.5%, and they do not pay that. >> [ booing ] >> and then when i want to raise the game and play the game of poker, a game that we cannot lose, i will get even politicians, mostly democrats, but even a couple of republicans, they will say, we want free trade. that is not fair trade. it is ridiculous. just play the game for a little while. it is a game we cannot lose. do you know what i said, a couple of times, when we are $500 million down, they say trump is starting a trade war. i say, no, the trade war ended a long time ago, and the united states lost because our leaders did not take care of our people, and our companies.
>> [ cheering ] >> so, we are not starting a trade war, but we will finish it. and you know what, in the end, you know what is going to happen? it has already happened, already , they are going to come to us, and they are going to say, hey, we are going to or get up. and we are going to work it out. but remember, it is the art of the deal. anybody can do the deal. there are a lot of people -- this does not get much simpler. when you are $500 billion down, you cannot lose. you have already won. we are going to make it fair, you have to make it fair. and the fact is, we have had presidents and leaders that worked for those negotiators who were missing in action. they were not doing their jobs. you know, i was dealt a lot of bad hands.
i was given north korea, where we were frankly very close to going to war. 30 billion people, 50 million people, 30 miles off of the border, they had what they had cannons like ours. thousands of them. i had to the meeting, we had a great relationship, we had a great chemistry together, the fake news was so upset when i said we had a good relationship. we had a good chemistry. they said that is a horrible thing. oh no, it is a good thing. getting along with countries, getting along with china, getting along with russia, getting along with these countries is a good thing. it is not a bad thing. >> [ cheers and applause ] >> not a bad thing. >> -- and we have things cooking now. you are going to be so happy. when people rush it it is like
rushing the cookie out of the stove. it is not going to be is good. the women can tell me, and some of the men, you have to be politically correct. she nailed it. you nailed it. but, some of the men can tell me, right, some of them in. but, here is what we do. the more you rush, the more -- worse it is going to be. the longer you take the better. for the farmers, the people are going to be great. you know, john, and kevin gave me something. canadian wheat. the market is consistently discriminated against, with the united states. by grading it as seed. do you know what that means? i do not know what it means. i just know it is a bad deal. what the hell does that mean. but it is true.
canada charges us for dairy products, a tariff of 275%. that is like saying we do not want your dairy products. it is no good. that is like saying we do not want north dakota, wisconsin, new york city state -- new york state, 275%, and i actually hear that is an old number, they raised it months ago, this year. how horrible is that? and then justin -- we fought world war i and world war ii together. we love canada. but they are taking advantage of that. we cannot let that happen. the era of global freeloading and taking advantage of the united states is over. it is just over. >> 17 -- [ cheers and applause ]

through strength, not weakness. pieces -- peace through strength. i have directed the pentagon to begin the process of creating a six branch of the united states armed forces called the space force. space force. because space is the new frontier. i'm not just talking about going up to the moon and going to mars, and i want the rich guides -- eyes. -- guys. guys like elon musk, they all of rockets. said that is okay, let's do it. let them send a rocket up to march. i hope they go past. let's help them, let's make it good for them. if they do it, we are going to claimant like we have for the united states. let them spend the money.
i have a lot of military guys -- and space from a military standpoint is the new frontier. we will have a space force. everyday we are keeping our product -- promises. to keep this momentum going, we need kevin cramer in the senate. >> [ cheering ] >> all of us tonight, are united by the same tireless values. we have pride in our history, respect for our great, beautiful, wonderful american flag, right? >> [ cheering ] >> we put our hands to our hearts, for the pledge of allegiance. and we proudly stand for our national anthem. >> [ cheering ] >> proudly stand. in
everything we do, we are standing up for our citizens. we are standing up for america, and we are standing up for north dakota. thank. -- thank you. the men and women of our country are not -- forgot no more. they all know where they came from. by the way, our people -- they used to say it is 35. than they said it is 40. than they said it is 42. now they say it is over 50%. and then they said some great people -- any time trump gets a pole -- poll --.
if you have ever noticed, i hate it. i meet these people, they call them the elites. look at them, and they, that is a lead? we got more money, we got more friends, better houses, apartments, we have nicer boat, we are smarter than they are, and they say the elite -- we are the elite. you are the elite we are the elite. so i said the other day, let's keep calling these people -- look, they are patient. they have been stone cold losers. the elite. the elites. let's let them keep calling themselves the elite. we are going to call ourselves -- and remember you are indeed -- you were carter and you are indeed smarter than them, let's call ourselves, from now on, the super elite. we are the super elite. you are the people who farmed perry's -- the prairies, tamed the

braved the cold and tamed to the wilderness, to build a home on the planes, -- plains, to build a home for their families. they were tough as hell and they were tough and they were smart. >> [ cheering ] >> they all had one thing in common. they loved their family, they left their country, and they loved their god. >> [ cheering ] >> they never gave up, and they never ever gave in. and neither will we. we will never stop fighting for our country, our families, and we will never, ever stop fighting for our freedom. >> [ cheers and applause ] >> as long as we are proud of who we are, and what we are fighting for, we will never,

society. i think that the nation built on immigrants and diversity -- we are finding it hard to embrace our differences as a good thing. and that is creating a great divide, and greater conflicts then we really need at the moment. we should be focusing our problem-solving skills and something more important -- not how we are different because our differences make us great. >> the most important issues to be our policy, typically in the united states we have a misconception among a lot of the public that we are fight -- following -- falling behind. it is important to me and for
the public to understand, and for the federal government to actually work harder on making policy a bigger issue than it currently is perceived as. >> i am a dentist and fair big. i have been here since 1976. i came up here from michigan. i went to school at the university of michigan. dental health is, of course, a very important issue here in the states. whether it is in the city, in small rural communities, there is no access to many care facilities. so, the dentists in this state have volunteered, we just finished a mission of mercy, i think it was the second mission of mercy here in fairbanks. the private sector, of course, there is is the biggest burden. a lot of the treatment here is donated by the local dentists. of course, the government facility, they offer a great
treatment out in the bush areas where there is no private practice. i encourage everybody to remember their dental hygiene. >> i am a 32 year resident of fairbanks, alexa. -- alaska. the issue currently timmy is the political divide. i was raised a moderate republican, and i worry about the future of our country. it just seems like there is no room for moderation, anymore. and what we have is a conflict, and nothing really gets done in the political parties, and i would like to see some changes. i also worry about our worldwide standing, i think, history league -- historically, we have been looked at as problem solvers.
and a deliverer of good. i think that is changing, but not for the better. that is a big concern to me, so, those are my issues. >> be sure to join us july 21 and 20 -- 22nd when we will feature our visit to alaska. watch alaska weekend on c-span, c-span.org, or listen on the c- span radio app . friday, the conversation with the chief justice of the united states, john roberts, from the judicial conference of the fourth circuit, live, friday, at 3:30 pm eastern on c- span. c-span.org, or listen on the free c-span radio app . housing and urban development secretary ben carson testified before the house financial services committee as it conducted an oversight --

to order, please? -- will you come to order. i now recognize myself for three and half minutes, to give an opening statement. as we all know, hud was established over 50 years ago. when it was established, president johnson said it was essential to the war on property, but unfortunately 50 years later, not to mention, $1.6 trillion later, poverty level in our country has barely changed. there is no doubt that hud programs help a number of our citizens, they are a critical part of the nation's social safety net. when i look at the data, and i look into the faces of our fellow citizens, it is hard not to conclude that h.u.d. has failed far too many for far too long. it does not appear to be for lack of resources, the h.u.d. budget has doubled, whereas the family budget -- which pays
