Donald Trump Campaign Rally in Hilton Head South Carolina CSPAN December 30, 2015 11:00am-12:31pm EST
say and he said. -- and be said. the other point to bring up is the idea you are bringing up. this idea of accountability is a critical aspect of building trust. you are not going to trust agencies or individuals who are not held accountable for wrongdoing. we definitely have to figure that out. i'm very interested in how you are defining the role of police from the perspective of guardianship. it makes me wonder if there is any policy initiative that speaks to, rather than having police deal with everyone, than having social services take the
role. are there policy solutions that are actually being played out or considered that would reroute resources to things like a mental health services, better schools, and other things that might get to the source of the need for the police? >> right. say that there were two overarching recommendations in the report that your comment makes me think i should point out right now. them was a recommendation that the president form another crime commission. we basically have not had an overall review of the criminal system since 1967 and it is about time. the second -- and i'm going to read this -- the president should promote programs that take a comprehensive and inclusive look at comprehensive issues.
that is what you are talking about. focus was pretty narrow, so we could not do everything, but we did talk about system thingss having 911 triage, by that i mean, if you get a 911 call where it appears that the incident is involving an individual who is suffering from mental disability, in some cities they will shift that call receivers who911 actually have special training to deal with and ask the right questions, so that the right resources, to the extent that they exist are then deployed to that situation. a lot of times, what you have are people receiving calls who do not have adequate training, who deploy people who do not have adequate training to
situations that could be completely avoided in a situation where there was training, right? one final point on this -- you take a place like the u.k., where there are not as many come ofc. -- they have police, have an overarching motto about preservation of life at all cost. is sent to aer situation. i'm not talking about in custody deaths. if you have a person who has a mental disability, who is facing an officer with a weapon, most of the officers are trained to simply slow the situation down. getget the sandwiches, how the coffee, will with the person out. that is not what happens here.
our officers are not trained properly and the people who dispatch them don't ask the right questions. that is a start. [applause] >> thank you. it was fun.

[applause] -- wrap up our pre-program here. i would like to thank you all for being here. it is a testament to the people of south carolina. we all know that iowa is important, new hampshire is important, but nobody, nobody has a beckett -- better record of kicking off the next republican nominee than the great state of south carolina. it is incumbent on all of us to let our voices be heard. we have many moderate democrats, we have independence, we have people who have not voted in 20 in our crowds.p
>> in hilton head, south carolina, waiting for donald trump. he is on his way to the rally at the resort. it should get underway shortly. it is expected to be his last campaign of the event of the year in south carolina. part of our road to the white house coverage. we are covering marco rubio speaking in iowa.
we also brought you hillary clinton in a town hall meeting she was address the issues of gun violence and mental health. you become president, what is your plan to connect to mental health problems and guns to make sure that me, my brothers, and my friends are safe? [applause] >> wow. [applause] i'm going to do everything i can. i'm not going to stop trying. right now, we lose 90 people a day to gun violence. tragic,s, suicides, and avoidable accidents. that is 33,000 people per year. i think we need to pass some laws that i have been advocating for.
we need comprehensive background checks. we need to close the gun show loophole, close the online loophole. [laughter] [applause] we need to make sure that the information that is needed to make the judgment about whether is qualified to buy a gun is in the record. we also have to close the charleston loophole, where the inroll are -- killer charleston went to buy a gun, he filled out the form, under the loophole he could come back and get it after three business days . the information that he was not eligible because he had a felony conviction was not available until after he murdered nine
people in a church in charleston. we have work to do. the mental health piece of this is especially troubling because you don't want to unfairly stigmatized people, but you want to protect the community, so you've got to have information. the killer red for junior attack, you might remember, had been committed, but that was not in the records. to prohibit people who are domestic abusers with three straining orders against them from getting guns. we certainly should get the congress to prohibit anyone who is on the no-fly list, the would-be terrorists, from buying guns in america. we need to repeal the immunity from liability that was given to gun makers and sellers by the
congress. [applause] as good a we can do job as possible trying to prevent people who should not .ave guns in the first place i'm going to reach out, i will work with anybody. i will also continue to advocate for this. we are in a whole different era where these mass shootings, these 33,000 people killed every us,, has become a rebuke to that we can't figure out how to deal with this. personally, i'm asking gun owners to support these changes. i just outlined,
comprehensive background checks and the like, is supported by 92% of americans and 85% of government -- gun owners. but the gun lobby lives off of fear and misinformation. they are willing to say and do whatever it takes and it is tolly time for gun owners form a different organization that will do more on gun safety, gun responsibility, and stand up for the safety of our children and our community. [applause] way, all of that town hall from yesterday with hillary clinton is available on our website, c-span.org. our live coverage continues in south carolina, waiting to hear trump.nald

[applause] i lovemp: i do this and to do it and i talk about our success because ultimately that is what it is all about. i think we are going to do fantastically well in iowa. i could say, if we came in the i'm looking toe, win everything. we want to run the table. that sends a signal. we had to response to hillary. [booing] mr. trump: remember? she said, he has demonstrated a penchant -- i demonstrated a penchant for sexism. can you believe that? me. nobody respects women more than donald trump. [cheers and applause] that, ip: when she said
had no choice. i did not started. i did have to mention her husband's situation. biggest story on television by a factor of 10. we have to do it. you can't let people push you around. you can't let people tell lies. you can't do it. it is interesting. one of the polls came out from cnbc and they said that if it is trump against hillary in the election, it will be the greatest voter turnout in the history of this country. i can see that. i can see it. i concur. they said all of these people that are going to come in new, they never vote, they don't care. they are going to vote for trump. they are so fed up with the system. this corrupt, horrible system.
they are fed up with it. they are fed up with those guys back there, the media, they are the worst. [cheers and applause] [booing] mr. trump: they are fed up with the media. they are not all bad, but there is so much dishonesty in the media. i like to call it out. one of the things that has been amazing to me and it is so beautiful to watch -- the level of genius in the public. they get it, they really get it. marginalize us, do all of this, they want to make everybody look like oh gee, the level of genius -- they fully understand, they know they are crooked, dishonest. otherwise, who gets worse publicity than me? [laughter] mr. trump: and yet i see it: 42%. -16 are talking about 15 people. started with 17 people. i would be happy with 42% if we
had three. not thrilled. i would like to be over that 50% mark, but we are doing really well. but the debates, ok? i love you too, darling. i do, i love you. you know what? the rooms, no matter where, stadiums, big ballrooms -- it is amazing. there is love in the room. the other night i said, a friend of mine who was very successful, who i would love having negotiate against china -- not these hacks that we have. i have guys. carl icahn endorsed me. i have great business people that want to be involved. we are the best. we don't use them. , we useolitical hacks special interest people that don't care about the country, they care about their deals. this is going to change so fast. billion trade0 deficit with china.
think about it. you know what $500 billion is? you do $100 bills, you would fill the room to the ceiling. $500 billion deficit with china. what are we? yeah, we certainly -- let's not blame us -- our leaders are stupid. /or they have deals. what has happened is all of this money is being given to them by special interests, by all of these people, including lobbyists, and these lobbyists make our leaders do -- our leaders, can you believe our leaders? they make the leaders of our country do things that they don't even want to do. because they have given them tens and tens and tens of millions of dollars. i look at this guy jeb bush. he spent $59 million on his campaign and he is down in the
grave. he is nowhere. think of it. it has got to be much more than that. a while ago.llion every time i turn on and add, -- an ad, it is about trump. it is not that bad. he is a low-energy person, let's face it. we don't need low-energy, we need lots of energy. $59 million. i spent nothing. nothing. [applause] mr. trump: i'm going to be spending. i'm going to spend a lot of money because i don't want to take chances. i love getting up -- and for the last couple of months -- i have been leading from practically the time i announced -- i'm going to go up or that, i love polls, i love polls. if they turn negative, i don't like them. [laughter] mr. trump: if they turn
negative, i will be talking about them. i get criticized all the time, what are you always talking about the polls for? one of these guys at 2% said, "he always talks about his polls." i wouldn't talk about it either if i was at 2%. [laughter] mr. trump: i swear. i love to tell the story where i have spent nothing and bush has spent $59 million. much higher than that. since then. you can't or not the television without these commercials. and fox, every two minutes it is a commercial one trump. it is false advertising. i killed him in the debate. according to reuters, according to everybody, drudge -- he was an amazing guy, matt drudge -- great guy. drudge, 46%. 46%, you have 15 people. a couple of dropped out. time magazine, 49%.
of it. slate, 51%. u.s. news & world report, 69% said i won the debate. [applause] mr. trump: pbs, public broadcasting system, 69% said trump won. it is amazing. have "washington times" 62%. cbs, 59%. fox las vegas, 62%. then they go back home after the debate. how did i do? looking good is very important, right? sometimes, it is not as much like what you say is how did you look. i looked good, didn't sound too good, but that is ok. [laughter] mr. trump: i go home and i watch and the pundits will say -- they can't totally kill me because we know it is happening -- well, mr. trump was ok tonight.
i'm on every single online poll and i won. bush does an ad. he was talking about something and then i killed him. met 69% and he is at 1%. he came in last. i shouldn't even talk about him. it bothers me when i see a guy spending $60 million on ads against me, a lot of it. i say, why is he doing this? he should go home. just relax. [laughter] mr. trump: honestly, he should go home and relax. it does. why is this guy spending all this money? now he is spending it against a couple of other guys who were also very weak. he made a statement and after that, his spin people said he was great. he took on trump, he took on trump. he made a statement that was written by his pollster.
he said, "mr. trump, why don't you this." i gave him an answer. i said, jeff, i'm at 42% and you are a 2%. it is a simple answer. you started off here, right next to me, and then you were there, then you were there, but the next time, you are going to be off the stage. [laughter] [applause] then that was it. i responded. the estimate me the question. the question was fine. professionally written. i give them an answer, i blew him away. everyone says trump won the debate. that is it. the ad is him asking the question and i'm standing there like this. in one of them, i'm just about ready to open my mouth. it is almost for us advertising -- false advertising, isn't it? hillary is a disaster. [booing]
mr. trump: she is controlled by her money. so is jed periods -- jeb. so is everybody. i'm the only one self-funding my campaign area [applause] one of the things that makes me happy. i heard one of my commentators mentioned, i've been watching it for 50 years and i've never seen anything like trump. i'm special. you're special. i like you. i'm special. isn't that nice? every once in a while, somebody says something that hits you. where are you? who said that? wow. so nice. that is a nice one. every once in a while, there is a statement that is either nice or brutal. i think low-energy was a brutal statement. low-energy can be applied to hillary. i just elect to use the same thing twice on one of my enemies. i consider them enemies. we view this as war.
don't we view this as war? [cheers and applause] mr. trump: i hate to give it up. we are going to help your daughter. we are going to help the country, as well as your daughter. we are in a situation where we have incompetent leadership, our trade deals are killing us, our military is not prepared. general lordy on oh said o -- ordeono said that we are less than at any time since the second world war. we should be very prepared. the world hates us. done a terrible job as secretary of state. think of it. putin comes out and says that donald trump is brilliant, doing an amazing job, leading the pack. that's nice. -- wouldn'tpponents
it be nice if we could get along with the world? wouldn't it be? wouldn't it be nice? [applause] me toump: they want refute his statement. how dare you say i'm brilliant. [laughter] mr. trump: who's going to do that? if he said it about anyone of them, they would have been happy. we have to get along. the world has blown up around barack obama. i don't know if you saw his recent release. they were talking about the department of state, the state department, and they said very strongly -- the things that they have done. they could not find it. what have they done that is good? they said bringing peace to syria. did you see that? [laughter] mr. trump: instead of saying they made a mistake, they made a mistake, they are trying to justify it. we meant we are working on it. can you believe it? .he world is blowing up the migration from syria.
they say one of their key things for the year is bringing peace to syria and the whole world suffers. it is the level of stupidity that is incredible. i used to use the word incompetent. now i just call them stupid. i went to an ivy league school. i'm very highly educated. i know words, i have the best words, but there is no better word than stupid. right? [laughter] applause]d mr. trump: there is none. no word like that. we are going to turn things around. it, with hillary, she has been hitting me really hard with the women card. really hard. i had to say, ok, that's enough, that's enough. we did a strong number. she is not going to win. i love the concept, love, love, love having a woman president -- it cannot be her.
she is horrible. she's horrible. you know who does not like -- we -- i willa -- ivanka tell you who doesn't like hillary -- women. women don't like hillary. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: i see it all the time. trump said this and that and this and that. she is so theatrical. i should not do it. i just have to turn off the television. she gives me a headache. i think last night i gave her a big headache. i can imagine. i can imagine those discussions. you have to hit back hard. you cannot let them push you around. today, she never even mentioned by name. in the debate, i was mentioned nine times. all of them. i was mentioned nine times. none of the other candidates
were mentioned. then she came out with the sexism, which is so nonsense, but she is playing the card. i can imagine. i can imagine those discussions. you have to hit back hard. i hit her back and i talked about her husband and the abuse of women and the tremendous abuse. it is tremendous. i talked about that. today, the television is going crazy. speechs up and makes a and does not even mention anything about me. i wonder why. i wonder why. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: remember this. it is really important. a poll just came out where we are tied. another one came out, fox, where we are leading by four or five points against or individually. i have not even focused on her yet. look at the people i focused on. i don't want to really knock them. are all people, that gone, they are all people that attacked me. wouldn't it be nice if our country could have that same thing? you attack and they are gone. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: we could do it
verbally, that is even better. who wants to use our military? we are going to build the strongest, the best, the most powerful military ever. ever. ever. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: ever. we are going to take care of our vets. we are going to take care of our vets. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: they are being treated horribly. we are going to build the strongest, most powerful military ever. let me just tell you a little secret. the cheapest thing we can do -- i don't think we are going to have to use it. they talk about my tone. i remember when jeb and hillary talked about my tone. they are chopping off christians heads in syria and other places and they want me to have a nice tone. isn't life wonderful, ok? we've got to be tough. we've got to be smart.
we've got to have heart. we've got to take care of people. we've got to fix our health care program. this obamacare is a disaster. you people know. [cheers and applause] -- obamacare is a total catastrophe. it will die in 2017 anyway. all the people that they didn't think were signing up are signing up. the other people that are really paying for it or not signing up. up 25%,es are going 35%, 45%. you're never going to be able to use it. obamacare is a disaster. we are going to repeal it here and we are going to replace it. there are so many great things we can do on health care. so many good things. and it will cost you less money, and it will be great. you are using programs you will never use. you are paying for it.
you will never ever use them. we will get that straightened out. common core instead. it's going to be dead. i see look at parents, local parents in iowa and new hampshire and south carolina. i went to a school and i saw the parents. they love their children. they want educate-- they don't care about money, they don't care about anything. love their children. they get together and they do wonderful programs. they are smart people. as opposed to getting it done by bureaucrats who are getting big, fat checks in washington. we have such talent in this country and we don't use it. obamacare, dead. common core, gone. we are going to get rid of it. department of education, we are going to get rid of it. we are bringing education -- one thing on education. so, in the world, we are ranked number 28. there are third world countries
that are ranked better than us in education and many other things. and yet, per pupil, we are number one, by far. there is nobody close. we spend more money for pupil than any country in the world and we are ranked number 28. which is way down at the bottom, essentially. can you imagine we are ranked number 28 and we are number one? that's what i do like saying about my campaign, i spent less money than anybody else and i have the best results. i'm number one by a lot and i spent no money. ads.nt no little radio ad in iowa. the station is so lovely. i spent eventually no money. then you have all these other guys -- i spent potentially no money. then you have all these other guys spending vast -- why would we put some of these other guys -- rubio on the ads
all day long. you know the black background. he should have put something like that behind him. the flag, right? and i like him. i think he is a nice guy. these ads with the backdrop -- it is just somber. think of it. i spent no money and i'm number one. -- they will have spent hundreds of millions of dollars and they are not even in the race. that's what we need for our country. what? 15,000," i don't know what he means by that. he is not a protester. ok, i love you. [applause] time the: the only
camera's focus on the crowd is when we have a protester. i always have the biggest crowds. i go home and my wife said were there many people? i watched you on television tonight. i said, i had 20,000 people. she said, they didn't show it. they have it right on your face. i have 20,000 people. 20,000 in oklahoma, 35,000 in mobile, alabama. nobody knows. the cameras, i think they might be fixed. except every time there is a guy that stands up protesting, they are on drugs or something, they don't even know what the hell they are doing there, all the sudden, the camera's words from their perfect shot -- the camera from their perfect shot. and i like it, because it shows the crowd. i will put in some false protesters. it's the only way i'm going to
be able to get the crowd in. i talked about trade. i talked about the border. i talked about a lot of things. i started on june 16 in trump tower. it takes guts to run for president. it's like, i've never done this before. we had the largest debate. we have a largest audience in history cable television. then cnn, a couple weeks later, had 23 million. fox had 24 million. the largest audience in the history of cnn. there are cameras on live right now. the largest audience in the history of cnn. if you go back four or eight ye ars, nobody even wanted the debates. i think they were forced to take them for licensing, but nobody wanted the debates. now they are drawing 24 million. now they want to have more. can they go three hours? remember when they had the one
go three hours and i said, no, i'm not doing three hours? i could stand up here for 50 hours, but who the hell wants to sit home watching three hours of this stuff? have 30 seconds, what would you do about isis? oh, great. by the way, i hate those questions. i want to be unpredictable i don't want to tell -- unpredictable. i don't want to tell isis what i'm going to do. i hate it. remember, i said very strongly -- you have been watching. four years, i said get the oil. iran is taking over iraq. we made a deal for iran. done by some of the dumbest people honors on our side. we gave them -- people on earth on our side. we gave them everything. we won't even get our prisoners back.
say we wanto do was our prisoners back. they would've said no. i would have said i want them back, you don't understand me, i want them back. they would have said, no, we won't do that. i would've said bye-bye and left. i would have doubled up the sanctions. and i guarantee you -- [applause] thatrump: i guarantee you within 24 hours they would've called back and say, you've got your prisoners, can we talk? i would have never given the $150 billion. i would have never given them the money. they don't have to buy nuclear. they can buy it. why do they have to make it? we are going to have the nuclear with the inspections. they don't want us there. they self inspect. they have a 24 day inspection, but the self inspection is the beauty. we think you are making nuclear weapons here. let us go and check, mr. president. we will go check.
no, sir, we are not making nuclear weapons. we would never do a thing like that. these are people who have deceived us, lied to us, they are terrorists. i used to say it is the worst deal that i have ever seen negotiated. they come back, we get our prisoners. then when i hear the other day that, now this deal is done, now i hear they want to negotiate. they said very strongly, we are going to want a lot for the prisoners. we are going to want a lot. we have already taken off the sanctions. they are already rich as hell. what is going on there? that's why i say, i mean -- some people say it is -- there is something going on that we don't know about, honestly. i'm not saying that. i'm not a conspiracy person. she said, "we are." half the people in this room are
saying it. i'm just hoping that you are stupid people, which they are, or there is something going on. because it is inconceivable. did you ever see where some things are so bad that it cannot be -- that nobody can do what they did? right, nobody. iran now wants to negotiate separately. that deal is done. now we want to start a new deal. we want a lot. i want to just shoot the television. you know?? because they would have had it -- ,nd you know what they asked kerry and obama -- the deal was made. everybody knows it is a horrible deal. it's going to lead to tremendous nuclear proliferation. they are so rich now. they became so rich. and many of the other things that you don't even know about. most people don't even know what the agreement says. but i will try you what, when you look at what we are doing,
if we keep going like this, folks, we are not going to have a country left. we are not going to have a country. we are like a dumping ground for the world. we are a dumping ground. they want to take these migrants -- and i feel terrible about the migration caused by hillary clinton and barack obama. they are the ones that caused it. they go into libya, they knocked the hell out of gaddafi. they backed rebels who end up killing the ambassador and the other young people. the ambassador was riding in a jeep, one of our jeeps, of course, a military jeep, holding the libyan flag, "freedom, freedom, freedom," and he gets killed by the same people. so, we backed people that turned out to be far worse than gaddafi. look what we did in iraq. what we did in iraq -- look what we did in iraq. what the hell did we get? trillion, we have
thousands of deaths, and i'm not even talking other side. are talking about hundreds of thousands, maybe millions. you have thousands of deaths, wounded warriors, who i love. these guys are the toughest -- these are the greatest people. [applause] mr. trump: these are the greatest people. and then what happens? we leave, and we have a president that announces the date of when we are leaving. so, i said, man, if i'm the enemy, i'm just going to go wait for 18 months. he gave a date, we are leaving iraq, we will be gone by such and such a time. i'm just sitting there watching and i'm saying, man, that's really stupid. because, believe me, the enemy doesn't want to be killed. you pierce so much they want to go with the virgins up -- you
hear so much they want to go with the virgins up wherever they go. using their wives don't know what they are planning -- you think their wives don't know what they are planning? you think their kids don't know what daddy is going to do when he is planning to fly into the world trade center? goingnow exactly what's on. frankly, i think they have more love for their family's lives than they do for their own lives. but they still want to live. here is obama. he gives an exact date, so they pull back. everyone says, oh, we are doing so well. why should they fight when they know, in 18 months, they can go in and take the place? so we have isis taking a lot of oil. i said take the oil. remember, i was opposed because i said we would destabilize. you have iraq and iran. there was fighting for decades and decades, for generations. they fight, that's what they do.
they fight. we ever got involved in this mess is hard to believe. they fight, and they were equal militarily. they go this way, 10 feet. they go this way, 10 feet. then they rest. they start fighting again. saddam hussein throws a little gas. everyone goes crazy. back and forth. it's the same. and they were stabilized. and i said, if you go after one or the other, in this case iraq, you're going to destabilize the middle east. and that's exactly what happened. we totally destabilized the middle east. we have migrations largely because of what's happened afterwards. iraq was horrible. it was stupid to go in and we should have never gone in. but we shouldn't have gotten out the way we went out. and we shouldn't have given dates. i would have probably said we would stay forever. and they would have said, oh, man. eventually they would get tired. this guy is crazy. and you make a deal.
are you announce you leaving in 18 months or whatever the hell he said, they just pull back. as soon as we left, they come in. we have the oil. the biggest benefactor of the oil is china. always china. i love china. i love mexico. they are leaders. we have no border. we will build a wall. mexico will pay for the ball, by by the way.he wall, we are going to have a border. and people are going to come into our country, but they are going to come in through a legal process, not just walking in like nothing. they are going to come in, but they are going to come through a legal process. so, with iraq, so we give them the date and they take over. for four years, i have been talking about it. then because of paris -- thedn't just want to bomb oil, i wanted to take the oil. so, we are bombing. and we are not really bombing it, because they are still
selling it. selling --hey keep obama does not want to hit them too hard because he is afraid he is going to pollute the atmosphere. no, this is serious. think of it. he talks about the carbon footprint, and yet he will fly a oldy old air force one, an boeing 747, spewing stuff. he's got a problem with the carbon footprint. you can't use hairspray, because hairspray is going to affect the ozone. i'm in my room in new york city, and i want to put a little spray -- [laughter] [applause] mr. trump: right? but i hear where they don't want me to use hairspray. they wanted to use the pump, which the other one, which i really liked better than going bing, bing, bing, and it comes out in blogs -- globs.
they say don't use hairspray, it is bad for the ozone. i do live in a very nice apartment. is beautiful. -- it is beautiful. i don't think anything gets out. and i'm not supposed to be using hairspray. so, obama is always talking about the global warming -- that global warming is our biggest and most dangerous threat. believer inare a global warming, isis is a big problem. russia is a problem. china is a problem. we've got a lot of problems. the maniac in north korea is a problem. he actually has nuclear weapons. that's a problem for we got a lot of problems. that's right. we don't win anymore. if i get elected, we are going to win. if i get elected, we are going to win so much -- we are going to win a lot. [applause] mr. trump: we are going to win
so much you are all going to get sick and tired of winning. you say, oh, no, not again. i'm only kidding. you never get tired of leaning, never. but think of it. so, obama is talking about all of this with the global warming. a lot of it is a hoax. it's a moneymaking industry, ok? a lot of it. i want clean air and i want clean water. i want clean, crystal water. and i want clean air. and we can do that. but we don't have to destroy our businesses. and by the way, china isn't abiding by anything. we cannot use coal anymore, essentially. they are buying our coal and using it. when you talk about the planet, it is so big out there, we are here, they are there. it's like they're our next-door neighbor. in terms of the universe. miss universe made a great deal when i sold it. oh, did i get rich. they broke my choppers on that.
they said, he talks about illegal immigration. we are not going to put him on television. first of all, univision is being sued like crazy. nbc, i made a great deal with them. far more than i would have ever gotten if i said i think i'm going to sell it. isn't it amazing this can work out? but i love miss universe. and i love the universe. think of it, china is spewing up all of this stuff. we are holding back. with china, we signed these agreements where we have to do it now. they have to do it within 30 or 35 years. i don't think they are going to be doing it. it's like japan. if somebody attacks japan, we have to go and start world war iii. if we get attacked, japan doesn't have to help us. somehow, that doesn't sound so fair. does that sound good? so, south korea -- thousands of televisions per year. i ordered televisions because i have a lot of stuff.
they are all made in south korea, most other than sony. sony, in all fairness, has lost its way. a lot of -- samsung, all of them. they are all pretty much -- all of them, right? i think just about. i ordered thousands of televisions, they are all from south korea. we have 28,000 people on the border separating south korea from this maniac in north korea. what did we get? nothing. they are making a fortune. it's an economic behemoth. a lot of you don't know we protect germany. germany, mercedes-benz. how many people have a mercedes-benz question mark we protect germany. it's an economic behemoth. we protect saudi arabia. during the good oil, they were making $1 billion per day. we protect them. our military protect -- they pay us peanuts, like nothing. and if we want to buy, moved to another location -- well, that's very expensive. they want to charge us rent?
look, we are run by people that are so bad, so out of their league. and i see it on the stage. a lot of people think i don't like these guys. i do like them, but they don't have business sense. they don't have common sense. they are politicians. they are all talk. they are no action. [applause] folks, when i say we are going to build a wall. most of them say, you can't build a wall. in china, 2000 years ago -- [laughter] mr. trump: they built the great wall of china, which is bigger than any wall we are thinking about. the great wall of china goes 18,000 miles. we have 2000 miles, of which we really only need 1000 miles, because you have a lot of natural barriers that are extremely tough to get across. we have 1000 miles. china has 18,000 miles or 13,000
miles, and we have 1000 miles. we have modern cranes, caterpillar tractors. i want to use caterpillar, made in america. [applause] mr. trump: even my hats, they are made in america. it was an easy to find a guy who could make those hats. i see so many of those knockoffs. great" -- ca mine are made in america. they don't produce as many as i would like because, frankly -- i mean, it's amazing. those hats are amazing. anyway, but i also knew that as soon as the hats -- we have a website. as soon as the hats came out, i knew the press would be calling. hats were when the announced, i get a call from "the new york times." mr. trump, where are those hats made?
i said, america. i knew it. i knew it. as you know, if i would have said china, i would have been in big trouble. but they are being knocked off all over the world. they are like helmets. i see them all. what are you going to do? we have to build a wall. when i talk and i'm up on the stage with these guys, these people, wonderful people, and a very nice woman, carly. she's a very nice woman. when i'm up on the stage with them, they think i'm crazy. were going to build a wall, it's going to be a great wall -- we are going to build a wall, it's going to be a great wall. i'm talking about, if they ever get up there, they are never come down, because it is too dangerous. you ever see what they do now with these little walls? they build a ramp. wouldn't it be cheaper to knock the wall down? they drive over it with jeeps loaded up with drugs. there was a picture in "time magazine." it's a little ramp that goes
over. make money. we get the drugs. think of it. we could build a wall. we get the drugs, they get the cash. not so good, right? we don't like that deal. our politicians don't know. they don't know. so, when i say mexico is going to pay for it. they are not business people. mexico makes a fortune off the united states. number one, we give them a lot of money. but in addition to that, they are taking our businesses. you are talking about a trade deficit. mexico, in a certain way, is a the new china. mexico is making an absolute fortune, peanuts compared to the cost of the wall. let's say the cost of the wall is $10 billion. i can do a great job with that. i think we will have a lot of money left over. 20 years ago, they wanted to build a wall. people that are opposed to it now, they wanted to stop and
build a wall. you know one of the reasons they did not build the wall? because of the environmental protection agency. they could not get an environmental impact study improved -- approved. the there was a toad or a snake or something in the way -- because there was a toad or a snake or something in the way. in the south china sea, there were these low-level landmasses that were covered by water, but pretty close to the town. china sends in massive they are building military fortresses in the south china sea. a friend of mine, who is one of the biggest and richest people in china -- they are great people. they are fun. then leaders are too smart -- their leaders are too smart for our people. they won't need to smart when i put my people there. -- they won't be too smart when i put my people there. [applause] i call up, wen would like to speak to the donor
-- no, the donor now is carl icahn. great businessman. all these businesspeople call. friend of mine. i call them and i say, you are actually doing it. they are joking. how long did it take to get started? did you have to get a new environmental impact study approved in order to excavate? he looked at me and goes, i hope you are kidding when you say that. they conceived of the idea and they started digging four hours later. there is no go through 25 years of environmental impact, you are going to hurt the snail. you're going to hurt this. they are doing a big thing. they excavated -- massive. they are ripping the hell out of that ocean. they are ripping it and they are taking that derek and they are putting it -- that dirt and they are putting airfields. they couldn't do it. we could not get an environmental impact --
that's probably not the only reason it happened. i heard the costs were too high. i'm under budget, i'm headed schedule. look at campaign -- the campaign. a guy has $59 million and he was down at the bottom. i'm nothing and i'm at the top. it's the same thing. [applause] mr. trump: i actually said -- it's funny. the other day i got this great review. they said "trump is a great speaker. the crowd is spellbound. but he has one problem." "the problem is he speaks through the applause." and you know why? because i'm so excited, because we have so much potential. i don't want to wait for your freaking applause. we have so much potential. there are so many things to do. i don't want to wait. i just did it again. you were getting ready to give a big applause, because you like that, and i'm speaking. i killed the applause. he is right.
but i'm not a speaker. i'm a doer. i get things done. [applause] , when the people upon the stage with me -- and hillary, hillary doesn't have a clue. you talk about low energy. she has lower energy than jeb bush, which is hard to believe. she does. maybe it's rude, maybe it is not. it doesn't matter. we have a much bigger problem. have to save our country. if people think i'm rude -- i'm actually a nice person. i want to help people. i want to see migration. i want to do a safe zone in syria. i don't want them coming here. we don't know who they are. they are undocumented. [applause] mr. trump: we should do a safe zone over there. states,d ask the both saudi arabia, these states are not spending. they have to spend. they have to pay. we are protecting them. they wouldn't be there for two minutes if we weren't protecting
them. they have to start paying. they are not taking anybody. how about germany? can you believe what she is doing to that country? and she was the person of the year and i wasn't. what are you going to do. -- to do? i think she has made a terrible mistake. we will find out. time will tell. they have tremendous crime problems. i think she has made a tremendous mistake. but in syria, with other people's money, meaning the gulf states and germany and others -- germany is paying a fortune to accept all these people. we do a massive safe zone. eventually, when this whole catastrophe straightens out, which i will probably be able to get it straightened out. when it is straightened out, they could go home to their country, to their area. it is interesting, i have thousands of people to work for me. thousands. i have people that come from far. a are all here legally, don't worry about it. i use everify. they go and check. dog --dy walk their
walks their dog. personid they found one out of hundreds and hundreds. i don't believe it. it is possible -- we do have 11 million people in the country. it is probably a much higher number than that. it is probably a much higher number. but we have to do something about it and we are going to. so, i just want to finish by saying this. look, we have a situation that is out of control. our country is a dumping ground for the rest of the world. we are laughed at by the rest of the world. and when i started this journey, and it is a journey, and i do love you people come you are amazing people. and by the way, you are so smart. well, mr. trump's people are blue-collar. i love blue-collar. i'm honored by that. they are not blue-collar. we have blue-collar, executives, young people. they say the audience is old. it's not older. the other night in iowa, i told that, and actually we have so many young people, the place
erupted. we have an amazing thing happening. [applause] it is just -- look, that's their way of marginalizing, not even me, they are marginalizing you. it is disgusting. -- i started this journey that's what it is, a journey, of remember the old days of the silent majority? this is a noisy majority. i have people and you can't even hear -- this is an amazing thing that is happening. i received a call from a reporter who happens to be liberal. we can have a couple of them. a guy who's really respected and he says how does it feel. he says what you have done has never been done in the history of politics in the united states . even cnn says number one political story -- isis
