[applause] speaker ryan: it is great to be here with all of you in madison. i know i'm taking a political risk here. ohio is a battleground state. but the buckeyes are going down tomorrow night, aren't they? [applause] speaker ryan: politics is a team sport, too. we cannot do what we do without all the time and effort given to our cause and all of our candidates. whether it is sending my gallagher to the house or sending ron johnson back to the senate, what each one of you do makes such a difference and in an election as critical as this one, it will make all of the difference.
i want to get right to the heart of things today. i know this election has taken some dark, sometimes very dark turns, which is exactly why i think it's important we take a step back and reflect on what this election is ultimately all about. beneath all the ugliness lies a long-running debate between two governing philosophies. one in keeping with our nation's outing pitbulls like freedom and equality and the other seeks to replace them. at this time, i would like to invite you to reflect on this choice we are facing here, right now, as fractured and polarized as this country is, a vast
we have a chance to save this country from decline and send it on the right path. it cap with liberty insult -- a path with liberty and self-determination. in elections, we don't just decide who are leaders will be. we get to choose what kind of country we will have for years to come. and the kind of america we want is confident and determined. our allies trust and enemies fear the america we want. the america we want is a land of opportunity driven by the individual spirit. you don't just live your life, you lead your life. you don't just get by, you get ahead and make the most of your potential. the america we want is a place where work is rewarded and successes of our earned -- successes are earned. government exists to serve the people. instead of lecturing us, our
leaders listen to us. they offer positive solutions to tackle our problems and sometimes, sometimes we put all those ideas on paper and we put them on a website named better. i'm told that it looks great on any mobile device. this is the america we want. this is our party's vision for america. what vision to hillary clinton and her party offer the people? they want an america that does not stand out. they want an america that is ordinary. there is a gloom and grayness to things. the driving forces the state. we are ruled by a cold and unfeeling democracy that replaces original thinking. the government twists the law and the constitution itself to suit his purposes. it's a place where liberty is always under assault. where passion, the very stuff of life is extinguished. that is the america hillary clinton wants. if given control of washington, if given control of congress, it is the america she will stop at nothing to have. the america they want is remade in the mold of what we call liberal progressivism. liberal progressivism needs no introduction here in madison. [laughter] speaker ryan: right? it's imported from socialist europe, it got its start here in madison, wisconsin. bob was part of a movement to address some very legitimate grievances of the people.
busting trusts, ending patronage , good reforms with good intentions. the theory was that if we enlarge the state, if we stock the bureaucracy with experts and technocrats who will decide what is best for the collective, we will be better off. in his time, the idea had some appeal. it made little sense in the nation founded on the distrust of power. it did not take long for this theory to be pulled back into
its collective roots. our betters became obsessed with bigger and bigger government. ignoring constraints and arbitrarily picking winners and losers. in the last eight years, there's been one long liberal progressive experiment. time and again, we've been told if we just spend more money, create more programs to live under, more rules to live by, put one more win on the palace of government, this will solve all our problems. after all that, we feel less safe and less secure. less free and less prosperous. as government grows more unaccountable, there is less faith and less trust and that is because liberal progressivism simply does not work.
it's the longest con. it preaches to us about fairness but stuffing free society. perhaps it should come as no surprise that we are in the weakest economic recoveries and the great depression. people are working longer hours for less. we are supposed to accept this as the permanent new normal. just look at yourselves. all the work you've put into getting this great high-quality education right here in madison, all of it leading to the moment where you can strike out on your own. and it's about as tough as it's ever been to find a good, decent paying job. a job that will help you start tackling your debt and get you on the right. it hurts the very people it is claiming to protect. there are now more than 94 million americans who are not just out of work, they are not even looking for work. nearly one out of three men over the age of 20 are not currently in the workforce. america's idol army. a whole generation of workers threatens to be wiped out by liberal progressive policies unless we ask, what becomes of these people, our fellow citizens? there may be no greater monument to liberal progressivism than our modern welfare system. it was created with good intentions.
as part of the war on poverty come a charge to face a gripping social problem that after trillions of dollars spent, the needle has barely moved. our poverty rates are still higher than they were in the 1970's. i welfare system is designed to replace work not encourage work the technocrats measure success by how many programs we've created, not how many people we get out of poverty. the system does not adapt to you. it just pushes you along the conveyor belt from program to program. it keeps people down instead of helping them break free. it goes against everything the american idea represents. this is what liberal progressivism is. a bad landlord that raises your rent but does not fix the heat. sure, they promise you all caps of upgrades but nothing changes. at least, not for you. maybe the folks on the top floor, but not for you. then, you are given no choice but to sign the same lease and so you are stuck with no way up, no way out. here's what you need to know about our political opponents. the left does not just seek a continuation of the last eight years. they do not seek to further the liberal progressive experiment. they intend to make it into a reality. an arrogant, condescending and paternalistic reality. what are they proposing?
another stimulus package of more government spending. you would think the left would realize there is no money left for their schemes but apparently not. washington democrats are in the midst of proposing a record slew of rules, an onslaught from everything from overtime pay to retirement planning. our tax code may be one of the least competitive in the world but washington democrats propose a continuous stream of massive tax increases. in america, the one they want is a machine of redistribution. for families looking for some relief from any relief from obamacare, they propose no cure. washington democrats want to expand obamacare and take us further toward government-run health care. that is the america hillary clinton and washington democrats want. but it is not the america that we want. we want an america that values disruption and animation. and a time when you can customize your life, you see this in your daily lives as millennials -- take uber and
lyft and airbnb. one of the centerpieces of clintonomics is to crack down on these companies. in an age of diversity come it demands conformity and sameness. in traps people. it traps people in health care exchanges you can't navigate you cannot make heads and tails of the tax code unless you hire an army of lawyers. it's about limiting you. there's no room to run, no chance to grow.
nor to fail, for that matter. people are counted and sorted. this is how you can casually classifiable baskets of people as deplorable's. -- classify whole groups of people in a basket of deplorables. it's how her associates can so casually say this week that able fate, a whole church is severely backwards. this is the america that the left wants. if congress does not stand for this and a republican congress will not stand for this, they will hire unelected bureaucrats to do their bidding. the left, they are not challenging the system. they are reading the system. liberal progressivism is government by them, the elites. when hillary clinton's as we are all stronger together, she means
we are all stronger if we are all subject to these rules. we are stronger if we give up our responsibility to one another and handed over to government. if we take away our ability to achieve progress in our own communities. there is no strength in this, only hubris. only the arrogance to assume we are better off if we fall in line or bow down to our betters. that may be the kind of america we they want, but not the america we want. the america we want is about allowing people to flourish and thrive. that's why we are taking to the country able to agenda. a bold agenda.
this is what we want this election to be about. it better way that means less government and more freedom. less apathy and more ambition. with that offers the best that liberty produces. we want to end the status quo in our welfare system. we want to reward work, make sure work always pays, give people the skills they need to succeed long-term. we want to secure our borders and build a 21st-century military and confront radical islamic extremism. we want our economy to live up to its potential and it starts with getting government out of the way. our plan will make it easier to build things and develop our energy resources and start small businesses. we need to restore self-government. we need to make sure that we are writing the laws that we live under. not unelected bureaucrats and washington, d.c.
every major regulation should come before congress for a vote before it goes into effect. that is accountability. don't you think we ought to be living under the laws that we write for ourselves? or instead of letting obamacare continue to drain us, we want to repeal it and replace it with real patient centered solutions. you should be able to choose the plan that best fits your situation and your budget. instead of letting our tax code's mother us, we want to get the irs out of our lives and lower taxes for hard-working people and make the tax code so simple that you can do your taxes on the form the size of a postcard. that is the cliff notes version of our agenda. that is the short version. the long version, the details are available at better.gop. we are taking our country's principles and applying them to the problems of the day and giving people real solutions. this is the america we want. we do not just offer these ideas to kick up some to do list. we offer these ideas to get our fellow citizens a clear choice.
are we going to be positive and inclusive and bring people together to reclaim our founding pencils? or are we going to be overrun by liberal progressivism with more despair and more decline ech? that is the choice before us. i know some people are voting to not make any choice at all. it is certainly easy at a time like this to get bogged down and let our fears overpower our hopes. raise your gaze. there is far more at stake here than we realize. every single generation of americans has left the next generation better off. this is our legacy. this is america's post to the world. we stay on this current path, we will be the first generation to violate this unwritten compact. if we do not act, we will not just lose our quality of life were standard of living, we will lose the spirit that makes
america great in the first place and it hillary clinton wins and she is given control of washington, if she is given control of congress, it will not be long before we come to that precipice, but that does not have to happen. we can be done with the old ways. we can build the america we want. this is where you will make a crucial difference. as powerful as ideas are, they are nothing without people who will stand up and put them to the test and say this is our vision, this is what we stand for. if you want to save this country, stand with us and join our cause. this is a fight for the next 25 days.
i am seeking mckenna. i want to thank you college republicans, i'm told, one of in wisconsin,oups madison, thank you for being here, thank you for being willing to swim against the stream. when i was in college, i was not as brave as you are. your city, andn the streamming in 15 years.tter part of how is how it will work. i have your names in your questions. i will call you. there will be someone who walks up to you. you do not get to hold you mi
c, do not be grabbing the microphone. something about having the microphone, you suddenly want to do karaoke. i will ask that you stand, ask her questions, and if you can wait for the speaker to answer your question, then we will move on. we will get in as many as we can. i suspect we will not get them all in. we will try to move through them as fast as possible. if we have time for a follow-up question, that will be at my discretion. we are in a bit of a time crunch here. ready to go? i will welcome back to the stage house speaker paul ryan. [applause]
>> i feel like we should be seeing a duet. we start with kennedy from madison. ryan: where did you go to high school? >> i'm originally from minneapolis. it is actually more little there, i think, than here. speaker ryan: that says something. >> first of all, thank you so much for being here. my question is the majority of millennials have republican values. we would you recommend spread the message on our campuses? speaker ryan:to
do everything you can to get ron johnson reelected. i did not go to school here, but i spent my summers here. one, when you are debating someone, don't go to a motion. you,they are coming at take a hike around. i always encourage people to go back to the basics and classic. understand what it is they are trying to propose to you have an understanding of how to beat it intellectually. take our principalle conservative values -- we believe in those core principles that make this country great. understand those first, familiarize them and find out how to characterize it in today's language. how to apply it to today's experiences. that's why i talk about
customization with your mobile devices. that is liberty and freedom and self-determination and the free enterprise system. it's very important that when people are shouting at you, you will not win a shouting match because no one wants to listen when you are screaming at each other, but get back to the basics and apply these great principles through your life in your experiences and try to introduce your friends to these things and take the high ground. >> and freedom is cool. speaker ryan: it's pretty hard to defeat freedom. >> jake from milwaukee. where's jake? >> good morning. you talk about the better way agenda. how will you continue to pursue this if the senate is split or hillary is elected president? speaker ryan: it will not be as easy. this is six things, welfare reform, rebuilding our national security, rewriting our regulatory system, restoring the
separation of powers and replacing obamacare and entitlement programs and replacing the tax code. these will be extremely difficult and divided government. one reason we put this agenda out there, this is not what we can achieve with barack obama's divisive government. we have big philosophical differences. that's why just having more of the same stalemate is not a good option. take tax reform or our budget, for example. all tax laws must start in the house of representatives. look at our tax reform. we write tax bills in the house in certain ways so we maximize economic growth. we send that bill over to the senate and the senate budget chair decides how we will consider that bill. if we keep control of the senate and ron johnson wins reelection, a nice guy from wyoming is the
senate budget chair, he helps us get these tax bills through. if we lose, you know who becomes the chairman? a guy named bernie sanders. that's what were dealing with -- losing the senate makes it that much more difficult for us to even put a bill on the president's desk. that's what it so important that we keep the senate as well. >> there's not much of an option. speaker ryan: we will keep fighting for what we believe in, but we have to get things to the president's desk. the filibuster is frustrating enough as it is. not even bringing up a bill would be even more frustrating.
>> kate from wisconsin rapids. >> thank you for joining us today. how do we articulate our economic message in a clear and brief manner so that college students, minorities and low-income individuals can see how our policies will benefit them? speaker ryan: you have to have good ideas. we do. look at how miserable the status quo is. look at the world poverty itself. that the war on poverty itself. take a look at the kinds of things we are offering.
for instance, customizing welfare benefits. making sure we create upward mobility and economic growth. you can talk about how bad the status quo is and how little opportunity we have because we are living under obama liberal policies. what we have right now is a flavor of what they want to continue doing. talk about what freedom and opportunity and upper mobility look like. talk about what our principles are, we want government to get out of the way so we can solve problems globally and solve problems in our community. we need people. every single person in this country is needed. we want to solve these problems together. what the left is saying is just have washington fix all that. appeal to people by trying, going in talking to people and chilling that we care. we have principles that work. best -- going and talking to people and showing that we care. go find those great poverty
fighters and surround them and help them and amplify them. polaski highway, right across the street from st. luke's -- three years ago, they had 14 games. it was an ugly situation. 14 gangs, you can imagine the violence, the dropout rates, kids getting washed away in society. a local group, local property fighters had let's try something else because they were trying more police, or cameras, more everything. they had a bunch of kids, young people who used to be in gangs who got redeemed, coming to the schools to be mentors to help kids learn from their mistakes. they were 24/7 mentors. those 14 gangs are now gone. graduation rates are up, attendance is up, academics are
up. the people in the committee have taken this violence free program and we are spreading it to other schools in milwaukee. there are some great folks in dallas doing this. that's what we believe in. that is an extension of our philosophy of rolling up our sleeves and solving a problem locally. that cannot happen if you are waiting for washington to solve on these problems. it's a beautiful picture of what we believe in achieving so that everybody can reach -- the american idea is a simple idea. the condition of your birth does not determine the outcome of your life. we need to make sure that idea is believable and true for everybody.
only by each of us taking these ideas and advancing them can we achieve that. >> kelly from the state of georgia. kelly: what is your best advice for republican college students on liberal campuses like medicin madison? speaker ryan: have i showed you this -- shown you this? don't get into a personality contest, don't talk about the latest winter storm. talk about what you believe and
why you believe it and why you think it's important to keep our country's core principles, stick to the constitution. you have to have an agenda. the kind of election we want to have is saying we have ideas and solutions, let's go when this. that's what scott walker and this state legislature did. here are the problems, here's the solution. that's what i would say. don't walk yourself into some bizarre personality contest but get into an ideas contest. we are trying to furnish you with ideas that actually solve problems. >> we have john from milwaukee. there he is. john: what are your main goals
for the upcoming legislative session? speaker ryan: i can't help myself. the way i used to run the budget committee, my goal is to get working on the economy. that means a budget which includes getting the budget under control -- i'm worried about the military about the hollowing out of our military. we have to reform the big structural drivers of our debt. we have to fix our military or we will have a role problem soon. i really want to get tax reform as quickly as possible. our tax code is arguably -- it is the worst tax system in the industrial world and it's causing us to lose a lot of jobs. overseas, which here in wisconsin means lake superior -- we see countries like canada taxing their business that 15%. ireland is at 12.5%.
england is going to 18%. our corporations are taxed at 35%. nine out of 10 businesses are small businesses. they are taxed as high as 44.6%. that is killing american competitiveness. we have these goofy international tax laws that if a company makes overseas does makes money overseas, they cannot bring it over here without a huge tax consequence. one estimate says our tax plan could create 1.7 million new jobs and add 10% growth to the economy. and budget that gets tax reform, gets the debt and deficit under control and gets our military what we need. i want to work on poverty and welfare. get this economy growing, get you into an economy where you have good options, good jobs, good wages. it fixes a lot of problems. let's also work on the people stuck in party, who are stuck in
this poverty trap and get them into the economy. we will get the revenues we need to get the kinds of things we need to do at the federal level. reasserting separation of powers is one of the critical goals of 2016. >> if hillary gets the presidency, what are the republicans plans to deal with the implosion of obamacare? speaker ryan: this is going to be a real problem.
actuaries declare this current state of health care and death spiral. sick or and sicker people are joining the exchange, healthier people are not. the premiums go up and up just to cover the costs. united health care is the biggest health insurance company in the country, from your hometown, they pulled out. they cannot make obamacare work. aetna pulled out. i met with these actuaries at blue cross blue shield and they told me the law is failing two years ahead of schedule. they all saw this coming. what is going to have been next
year is much higher premiums, much higher deductibles and no choices. kaisers and 31% of counties in america, you only get one choice and obamacare. next year, it will get even worse. we have a plan for this. what i want to do is advance a solution to replace this failing obamacare system with real patient centered health care. we can have a system in this country where people can get affordable health care rates, more choices, more freedom, lower prices, better quality and we can do it so we have the kind of aid we need for people who are low income and a system for people with pre-existing conditions. we can do all of these things without having a government
takeover like we have right now. go to better.gop and you can see exactly what were talking about. this is what we will present to the next president. this law is failing, it is not working, here is a solution and here is what it should be replaced with. we can fix this problem. we can get lower costs, more quality health care, better access everybody and we can deal with a legitimate problem -- you get breast cancer in your middle 40's, you don't want to go to the poor house to get your health care. we can do this without a huge government takeover. we intend to put the solution on the desk of the president. that will be a massive fight. the left wants to double down on government run health care. they don't want our patient centered solutions. they don't want more insurance competition. they want the government to run it all. when you say that something like this is a right, like they claim health care is now, that means the government decides for its help that they get to tell you
where, how, why and under which circumstances you have to exercise that right. that takes so much power away from you, from us and gives it to the government and look at these predictable results. my goal is to put on the president's desk a plan to fix all this. >> that is not a choice. one thing is not a choice. one last person we've got here. that is mitch. mitch: in what ways can we do students or the larger electorate as a whole better market to undecided individuals everything the republican congress has done in the last to years? speaker ryan: i did not ask him to ask this question, by the
way. here's what i decided to do -- find where the common ground exists and get those things done. we had a real infrastructure problem in this country. just go down i-94. we have some real issues there. we have a bipartisan infrastructure built. we have a long-term highway bill so we can start building these projects. we have an education problem. you ever heard of no child left behind or common core? we got consensus to ban common core and replace no child left kind and get control back to our states. we have the biggest evolution of power -- our trade laws were not working like they should. we had other countries taking advantage of our lack of enforcement of our trade laws and taking advantage of us and cheating on their own agreements they agreed to.
this is something i specifically worked on. we rewrote our customs loss and export laws and so we can enforce our trade laws. we think that, first time in 40 years. we have this problem where farmers and small businesses had no idea what their taxes were going to look like by the end of the year because we had its enforce our trade laws. applicability in the tax code. we made important decisions permanent for workers and farmers of they can invest. we got a lot of things done. but again, there is huge issues in this country that are going unsolved. the reason it's going unsolved is because our two parties -- it's not that the other side are bad people, i just think they are wrong. they're going in the wrong direction very quickly. we are trying to win an election by showing that we have better solutions, better ideas.
if we can win that kind of election, we have earned the right ahead of time to put the solutions in place in 2017 and get our country back on the right track. a country where seven out of 10 americans think the countries on the wrong track that's what i would encourage you to make true that of the people, your friends, your colleagues, your classmates, make sure they know what it is we are actually talking about. what it is we believe in. turn the tv off and get on better.gop and look at what were proposing.
>> thinks, everyone, for coming out. you actually have to go out and vote. you actually have to win elections to get the stuff done. the election is november 8, early voting is already happening. speaker ryan: thank you very much. thanks, everybody.

mrs. obama: my goodness. [cheering] [applause] you guys are fired up. [applause] well. let me just say hello, everyone. [cheering] [applause] i am so thrilled to be here with you all today in new hampshire. this is like home to me, and this day -- thank you for a beautiful fall day. you just ordered this day up for me, didn't you? [cheering] [applause] it's great to be here. let me start by thanking your fabulous governor, your next u.s. senator, maggie hassan. [cheering] [applause] i want to thank her for that lovely introduction.
i also want to recognize your congresswoman, annie mcklane kuster, who's a dear, dear friend. [applause] your soon-to-be congresswoman once again, carol shea porter -- [applause] all of whom have been just terrific friends to us. and your executive council and candidate for governor, colin van ostern. [applause] and, of course, thanks to all of you for taking the time to be here today. >> we love you. [cheering] [applause] mrs. obama: thanks so much. that's very sweet of you. i love you guys, too. i can't believe it's just a few weeks before election day, as we come together to support the next president and vice president of the united states, hillary clinton and tim kaine. [cheering] [applause] and new hampshire is going to be important, as always.
so i'm going to get a little serious here, because i think we can all agree that this has been a rough week in an already rough election. this week has been particularly interesting for me, personally, because it has been a week of profound contrast. see, on tuesday, at the white house, we celebrated the international day of the girl and let girls learn. [cheering] [applause] and it was a wonderful celebration. it was the last event that i'm going to be doing as first lady for let girls learn. and i had the pleasure of spending hours talking to some of the most amazing young women you will ever meet -- young girls here in the u.s. and all around the world. and we talked about their hopes and their dreams. we talked about their aspirations.
see, because many of these girls have faced unthinkable obstacles just to attend school, jeopardizing their personal safety, their freedom, risking the rejection of their families and communities. so i thought it would be important to remind these young women how valuable and precious they are. i wanted them to understand that the measure of any society is how it treats its women and girls. >> yes. [cheering] [applause] mrs. obama: and i told them that they deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, and i told them that they should disregard anyone who demeans or devalues them, and that they should make their voices heard in the world. and i walked away feeling so inspired, just like i'm inspired by all the young people here --
[cheering] [applause] and i was so uplifted by these girls. that was tuesday. and now, here i am, out on the campaign trail in an election where we have consistently been hearing hurtful, hateful language about women. language that has been painful for so many of us, not just as women, but as parents trying to protect our children and raise them to be caring, respectful adults. and as citizens, who think that our nation's leaders should meet basic standards of human decency. [cheering] [applause] the fact is that, in this election, we have a candidate for president of the united
states, who, over the course of his lifetime and the course of this campaign, has said things about women that are so shocking, so demeaning that i simply will not repeat anything here today. and last week, we saw this candidate actually bragging about sexually assaulting women. and i can't believe that i'm saying that a candidate for president of the united states has bragged about sexually assaulting women. and i have to tell you that i can't stop thinking about this. it has shaken me to my core in a way that i couldn't have predicted. so while i'd love nothing more than to pretend like this isn't happening, and to come out here and do my normal campaign speech, it would be dishonest and disingenuous to me to just move on to the next thing like this was all just a bad dream. this is not something that we can ignore. it's not something we can just sweep under the rug as just
another disturbing footnote in a sad election season. because this was not just a "lewd conversation." this wasn't just "locker-room banter." this was a powerful individual speaking freely and openly about sexually predatory behavior, and actually bragging about kissing and groping women, using language so obscene that many of us were worried about our children hearing it when we turn on the tv. and to make matters worse, it now seems very clear that this isn't an isolated incident. it's one of countless examples of how he has treated women his whole life. and i have to tell you that i listen to all of this, and i feel it so personally. and i'm sure that many of you do, too, particularly the women. the shameful comments about our bodies. the disrespect of our ambitions and intellect.
the belief that you can do anything you want to a woman. it is cruel. it's frightening. and the truth is, it hurts. it hurts. it's like that sick, sinking feeling you get when you're walking down the street, minding your own business, and some guy yells out vulgar words about your body. or when you see that guy at work that stands just a little too close, stares a little too long, and makes you feel uncomfortable in your own skin. it's that feeling of terror and violation that too many women have felt when someone has grabbed them or forced himself on them, and they said, "no," but he didn't listen -- something that we know happens on college campuses and countless other places every single day. it reminds us of stories we
heard from our mothers and grandmothers about how, back in their day, the boss could say and do whatever he pleased to the women in the office, and, even though they worked so hard, jumped over every hurdle to prove themselves, it was never enough. we thought all of that was ancient history, didn't we? and so many have worked for so many years to end this kind of violence and abuse and disrespect, but here we are, in 2016, and we're hearing these exact same things every day on the campaign trail. we are drowning in it. and all of us are doing what women have always done -- we're trying to keep our heads above water, just trying to get through it, trying to pretend like this doesn't really bother us, maybe because we think that admitting how much it hurts makes us, as women, look weak.
maybe we're afraid to be that vulnerable. maybe we've grown accustomed to swallowing these emotions and staying quiet, because we've seen that people often won't take our word over his. or maybe we don't want to believe that there are still people out there who think so little of us as women. too many are treating this as just another day's headline. as if our outrage is overblown or unwarranted. as if this is normal, just politics as usual. but, new hampshire, be clear. this is not normal. this is not politics as usual. [cheering] [applause] this is disgraceful.
it is intolerable. and it doesn't matter what party you belong to -- democrat, republican, independent -- no woman deserves to be treated this way. none of us deserves this kind of abuse. [cheering] [applause] and i know it's a campaign, but this isn't about politics. it's about basic human decency. it's about right and wrong. [cheering] [applause] and we simply cannot endure this, or expose our children to this any longer -- not for another minute, and let alone for four years. [cheering] [applause] now is the time for all of us to stand up and say, "enough is enough." [cheering] [applause] this has got to stop right now. because consider this --
if all of this is painful to us as grown women, what do you think this is doing to our children? what message are our little girls hearing about who they should look like, how they should act? what lessons are they learning about their value as professionals, as human beings, about their dreams and aspirations? and how is this affecting men and boys in this country? because i can tell you that the men in my life do not talk about women like this. and i know that my family is not unusual. [cheering] [applause] and to dismiss this as "everyday locker-room talk" is an insult to decent men everywhere. [cheering] [applause] the men that you and i know don't treat women this way.
they are loving fathers, who are sickened by the thought of their daughters being exposed to this kind of vicious language about women. they are husbands and brothers and sons, who don't tolerate women being treated and demeaned and disrespected. [cheering] [applause] and, like us, these men are worried about the impact this election is having on our boys, who are looking for role models of what it means to be a man. [cheering] [applause] in fact, someone recently told me a story about their six-year-old son, who, one day, was watching the news -- they were watching the news together. and the little boy, out of the blue, said, "i think hillary clinton will be president." and his mom said, "well, why do you say that?" and this little six-year-old
said, "because the other guy called someone a piggy," and, he said, "you cannot be president if you call someone a piggy." [cheering] [applause] so even a six-year-old knows better. a six-year-old knows that this is not how adults behave. this is not how decent human beings behave. and this is certainly not how someone who wants to be president of the united states behaves. [cheering] [applause] because let's be very clear -- strong men -- strong men, men who are truly role models -- don't need to put down women to make themselves feel powerful. [cheering] [applause] people who are truly strong lift others up. people who are truly powerful bring others together. and that is what we need in our next president. we need someone who is a uniting force in this country. we need someone who will heal the wounds that divide us, someone who truly cares about us and our children, someone with strength and compassion to lead
this country forward. and let me tell you, i'm here today, because i believe with all of my heart that hillary clinton will be that president. [cheering] [applause] see, we know that hillary is the right person for the job, because we've seen her character and commitment, not just in this campaign, but over the course of her entire life. the fact is that hillary embodies so many of the values that we try so hard to teach our young people. we tell our young people, "work hard in school, get a good education." we encourage them to use that education to help others -- which is exactly what hillary did with her college and law degrees, advocating for kids with disabilities, fighting for children's health care as first lady, affordable child care in the senate. [cheering] [applause]
we teach our kids the value of being a team player, which is what hillary exemplified when she lost the 2008 election and actually agreed to work for her opponent as our secretary of state -- [cheering] [applause] earning sky-high approval ratings, serving her country once again. [cheering] [applause] we also teach our kids that you don't take shortcuts in life, and you strive for meaningful success in whatever job you do. well, hillary has been a lawyer, a law professor, first lady of arkansas, first lady of the united states, a u.s. senator, secretary of state. and she has been successful in every role, gaining more experience and exposure to the presidency than any candidate in our lifetime. more than barack, more than bill. [cheering] [applause] and, yes, she happens to be a woman.
[cheering] [applause] and finally, we teach our kids that when you hit challenges in life, you don't give up. you stick with it. well, during her four years as secretary of state alone, hillary has faced her share of challenges. she's traveled to 112 countries, negotiated a ceasefire, a peace agreement, a release of dissidents. she spent 11 hours testifying before a congressional committee. we know that when things get tough, hillary doesn't complain. she doesn't blame others. she doesn't abandon ship for something easier. no, hillary clinton has never quit on anything in her life. [cheering] [applause]
so in hillary, we have a candidate who has dedicated her life to public service, someone who has waited her turn and helped out while waiting. [cheering] [applause] she is an outstanding mother. she has raised a phenomenal young woman. she is a loving, loyal wife. she's a devoted daughter, who cared for her mother until her final days. and if any of us had raised a daughter like hillary clinton, we would be so proud. we would be proud. [cheering] [applause] and regardless of who her opponent might be, no one could be more qualified for this job than hillary. no one. and in this election, if we turn away from her, if we just stand by and allow her opponent to be elected, then what are we teaching our children about the values they should hold, about
the kind of life they should lead? what are we saying? in our hearts -- in our hearts, we all know that if we let hillary's opponent win this election, then we are sending a clear message to our kids that everything they're seeing and hearing is perfectly okay. we are validating it. we are endorsing it. we're telling our sons that it's okay to humiliate women. we're telling our daughters that this is how they deserve to be treated. we're telling all our kids that bigotry and bullying are perfectly acceptable in the leader of their country. is that what we want for our children? >> no. mrs. obama: and remember -- we won't just be setting a bad example for our kids, but for our entire world. because for so long, america has been a model for countries across the globe, pushing them to educate their girls,
insisting that they give more rights to their women. but if we have a president who routinely degrades women, who brags about sexually assaulting women, then how can we maintain our moral authority in the world? how can we continue to be a beacon of freedom and justice and human dignity? well, fortunately, new hampshire, here's the beauty -- we have everything we need to stop this madness. you see, while our mothers and grandmothers were often powerless to change their circumstances, today, we, as women, have all the power we need to determine the outcome of this election. [cheering] [applause] we have knowledge. we have a voice. we have a vote.
and on november the 8th, we, as women, we, as americans, we, as decent human beings, can come together and declare that enough is enough. and we do not tolerate this kind of behavior in this country. [cheering] [applause] remember this -- in 2012, women's votes were the difference between barack winning and losing in key swing states, including right here in new hampshire. [cheering] [applause] so for anyone who might be thinking that your one vote doesn't really matter, or that one person can't really make a difference, consider this -- back in 2012, barack won new hampshire by about 40,000 votes, which sounds like a lot. but when you break that number down, the difference between winning and losing this state was only 66 votes per precinct. just take that in. if 66 people each precinct had
gone the other way, barack would have lost. so each of you, right here today, could help swing an entire precinct and win this election for hillary just by getting yourselves, your families, and your friends and neighbors out to vote. you can do it right here. [cheering] [applause] but you could also help swing an entire precinct for hillary's opponent with a protest vote or by staying home out of frustration. because here's the truth -- either hillary clinton or her opponent will be elected president this year. and if you vote for someone other than hillary, or if you don't vote at all, then you are helping to elect her opponent. and just think about how you will feel if that happens. imagine waking up on november the 9th and looking into the eyes of your daughter or son, or looking into your own eyes as
you stare into the mirror. imagine how you'll feel if you stayed home, or if you didn't do everything possible to elect hillary. we simply cannot let that happen. we cannot allow ourselves to be so disgusted that we just shut off the tv and walk away. and we can't just sit around wringing our hands. now, we need to recover from our shock and depression and do what women have always done in this country. we need you to roll up your sleeves. we need to get to work. [cheering] [applause] because remember this -- when they go low, we go -- >> high. mrs. obama: yes, we do. [cheering] [applause] and voting ourselves is a great start, but we also have to step up and start organizing. so we need you to make calls,
and knock on doors, and get folks to the polls on election day, and sign up to volunteer with one of the hillary campaign folks who are here today, just waiting for you to step up. [cheering] [applause] and, young people and not-so-young people, get on social media. [cheering] [applause] share your own story of why this election matters, why it should matter for all people of conscience in this country. there is so much at stake in this election. see, the choice you make november 8th could determine whether we have a president who treats people with respect -- or not. a president who will fight for kids, for good schools, for good jobs for our families -- or not. a president who thinks that women deserve the right to make our own choices about our bodies and our health -- or not. [cheering] [applause] that's just a little bit of what's at stake.
so we cannot afford to be tired or turned off. and we cannot afford to stay home on election day. because on november the 8th, we have the power to show our children that america's greatness comes from recognizing the innate dignity and worth of all our people. on november the 8th, we can show our children that this country is big enough to have a place for us all. men and women, folks of every background and walk of life. and that each of us is a precious part of this great american story, and we are always stronger together. [cheering] [applause] on november 8th, we can show our children that, here in america, we reject hatred and fear -- [cheering] [applause] and in difficult times, we don't discard our highest ideals. no, we rise up to meet them.
we rise up to perfect our union. we rise up to defend our blessings of liberty. we rise up to embody the values of equality and opportunity and sacrifice that have always made this country the greatest nation on earth. [cheering] [applause] that is who we are. [cheering] [applause] and don't ever let anyone tell you differently. [cheering] [applause] hope is important. hope is important for our young people. and we deserve a president who can see those truths in us. a president who can bring us together and bring out the very best in us. hillary clinton will be that president. [cheering] [applause] so for the next 26 days, we need to do everything we can to help her and tim kaine win this election.
i know i'm going to be doing it. are you with me? [cheering] [applause] are you all with me? [cheering] [applause] you ready to roll up your sleeves? get to work knocking on doors? all right, let's get to work. thank you all. god bless.

clinton by a small margin. sweet -- we spoke earlier to a what theabout campaigns are doing to gain voters. host: james pendleton joining us from boston. thank you for joining us. why has this state become so critical to both the clinton and trump campaigns? guest: in a lot of ways, new hampshire has really mattered in president elections. if you go back to the 2000 election, it was decided by about 2000 votes, or less. won newre had hampshire, we would not be talking about florida.
both parties have ingrained in themselves that pivotal year. looking at donald trump, there is something highly unusual about all of his trips to the state. this is his fourth trip in one month to the state, four weeks. it is highly disproportionate compared to everywhere else in the country. you know, this race is really coming down to four big states, swing states. north carolina, florida, ohio, and pennsylvania. the polls there make a very good argument that donald trump has a chance to win and can win a lot of electoral votes there. it may look a little differently at the current moment. it does have a lot of people scratching their heads. tot: in donald trump's quest
get 270 electoral votes, what is the past to victory and what role does new hampshire play? guest: one is to sweep all of the four big states that we mentioned. ohio, pennsylvania, north carolina, and florida. he does that, and he gets there, barely. the other way is to get two of those states and a collection of a lot of other smaller states. iowa, for example, he is doing well in. nevada, colorado. and, you have to put in their new hampshire. he has been here eight times since june, basically the kickoff of the election.
states that are much bigger like florida and georgia combined. further, he is spending more time here than any other swing states outside of those big four. and he has had more cantina events in new hampshire then mitt romney four years ago as your smart listeners know, he basically lives in new hampshire in the 2012 campaign in .olfeboro there are some simple reasons for it. the clinton campaign sees the consistentlyerr up saying the race is tighter. secondly, which is really honest, it is closer to new york city.
when trump wants to schedule an event last night, he can get on a campaign, come to new hampshire, he knows the staff will put together a fine event, and he can get in his plane and sleep and trump tower. on the senate, how is that impacting the overall tenor of the campaign? what impact to think it will have on turnout in new hampshire? guest: in a lot of ways, it is incredible. this race, as you mentioned, senate control can come down to just two states. pennsylvania and new hampshire. this contest in new hampshire is remarkable for so many reasons. it is the most extensive in the state history, it features the most high profile race of two women in terms of the importance a sitting senator and
sitting governor. the first question at every single debate in the election for these two candidates has been about the presence of racist. the presence of race is overshadowing everything that i just said is really dramatic about this contest. host: we can read your work bostonfrom "la globe." thank you for being with us. >> again, we are waiting here for donald trump to appear at this campaign event in new hampshire. he has already gone to twitter this morning to talk about the sayingf the race and claims were fabricated and made up and the campaign is being
charged by the media pushing false and substantiated charges. as for right now, hillary eventn does not have any scheduled before the final present shall debate on wednesday in las vegas. instead, she has had several surrogates campaigning on her behalf. coverage willr take place live on c-span. you can also listen anywhere using the free c-span radio ap p. ♪ >> hello, there. what a great crowd. what an honor it is for me to be with you and participate in the
donald trump campaign. today he do a great job in the a great- didn't he do job in the debate? so strong. that is why we need a strong leader. overwhelmingly, the american people believe we are on the wrong track. they have been saying that for years. washington will not listen. i've been there, i participated in the debate, they talk a good game, they say they understand, they say they care about what the american people care about, but they are not delivering for us. let me ask you, if we are on the wrong track and we have been on the wrong track for quite a long time, will hillary clinton change of us and get is on the right track? it is just that simple. donald trump --
all right. donald trump has the strength, and the courage. the ability to get us back on the right track. don't you agree? thisare attempting to rake -- rig this election. they will not succeed. they are attempting to hide what these wikileaks are revealing. she says she wants an open trade .greement

mayor giuliani: thank you. thank you very much. rudy! rudy! mayor giuliani: thank you very much. jeff is right. that was a great department of justice that jeff was a part of. it was a very different department of justice tha than the one we have now, which i believe is a corrupt department of justice. it really breaks my heart. i devoted a great deal of my life, accident, occasionally i put my life at risk for the justicehey did for the department. it was not just me. i came into the justice department and tried to
straighten it out. we did. go ask how many times they tried to interfere with the fbi. they are essentially crooked, they had been since arkansas. and, under george bush, the justice department was handled in an honorable way. now, it has become a disgrace. the attorney general meeting with the chief target of an investigation for five days before she was let free on all the charges. on abi interviewed her saturday, and on tuesday, they put out the report. i worked with the fbi for 15 years. i never see them right a report .n 15 days did they think i am stupid?
that report was written four months ago. the fix was in from the very beginning. look, you don't get to destroy 33,000 e-mails under congressional subpoena and not have her case but before a grand jury. you go to jail for that. >> lock her up! lock her up! mayor giuliani: you don't get to say to fbi, when they present you with a top-secret document that she did not know that c on a government document meant confidential. if she did not know that, she was too stupid for being secretary of state. liede did know it, and she to the fbi. that is what martha stewart went to jail for.
i can go on and on. i tell you this because the press does not cover it. the press does not cover wikileaks and the speeches and .he e-mails that have come out this group is exactly what we thought they were. they were crooks back and arkansas. they were selling the lincoln bedroom in the white house. then, they sold the state department for hundreds of millions of dollars. enough of them. hopefully they are the past. i think when they get finished with the clinton foundation, it will be a bigger scandal because a lot more money is involved. she agreed to sell uranium to russia.
they made 130 million dollars on that. at least she did not do it for pennies. $130 million. donald trump and new hampshire each other. 110%. you are the live free or die state. right? donald trump believes in freedom. he believes that more money in your pocket is better than more money in the government's coffers. he wants to give you all the tax reduction. everybody. middle-class. why does he want to do it for everybody? he wants to put more money in circulation so more people can better., live that is how you get the economy going. did is what ronald reagan
in 1980. we had 10 years of a booming economy. so much better. we were doing 4%-5%. did in what john kennedy 1960. he reduced taxes. we had for five years of tremendous economic growth. when we put money back in your hands, you spend it better than the government. she is for taking out of your pocket. she wants to take the top rate of 45%. she says she will only tax the rich. the rich includes all small businesses. tax theid he will only rich. have your taxes gone up? are you rich? she is lying again. that fits into one of the things in one of for speeches. she got paid $250,000 for this. she said that she does not say
the same thing in public as private. in public she says there will be a 45% increase on the rich. says, i know i have to really raise taxes on everybody to get the money for all of the giveaway programs that i will create. not get rid of obamacare like donald trump is. donald trump will get rid of obamacare. it.ary will expand canada whatank of she really believes in is -- we have always known this, haven't we -- she believes and socialized medicine. do you know anybody who goes to canada to get an operation? do you know a lot of people from canada who come here to get an operation? you go toshe want --

phenomenal people, must be spinning at what is going on with the fbi. spinning. instead of being held accountable, hillary is running for president at what looks like a rigged election. rigged byon is being corrupt media pushing completely false allegations and outright lies and effort to elect her president. and, you know what i mean? in fact, today, the cousin of one of these people -- [indiscernible]
mr. trump: in fact, the cousin of one of these people wrote a letter that what she said is a lie, that she was a huge fan of donald trump, she invited donald trump to a restaurant to have dinner, which, by the way, i did not go to, i did not know who the heck we were talking about here. , manyallegations have an proven false. the butler said it was a total lie. we cannot let them get away with this, folks. total lies. .e are going to stop it we are not going to back down.
no witnesses whatsoever. how about this crazy woman on .he airplane can anyone believe that one? she said, thats .s too much in this place, it would be 15 seconds, and smack. a crazy world we are living in. election.gged there putting that on the first pages of newspapers. we are not going to let it happen. it with theve had years and decades of corruption.
you can go back to whitewater, , where shele deal got a far greater return on the investment in the history of the cattle business. give me a break. these are crooked people. fort now, she is resting the debate. she calls it debate prep. this is saturday. that will be wednesday. you're supposed to know this stuff.
what are you going to learn in five days? you know what is interesting to me, she is supposed to know it, yet, when she was being investigated by the fbi, what she did on the fourth of july weekend, by the way, with no tape recorders going, she did not have to swear. this was a little different than they treated martha stewart. recorders going. 39 times, i don't remember, i don't remember. maybe that is why she has two debate prep because she has a bad memory. a lot of things are going on, folks. i think she is action getting pumped up. you understand? we will be talking about that in a few minutes. she is getting pumped up for
wednesday night. know, i don't know. we like athletes, right? 17 senators, governors come all these people. we are like athletes. hillary beat bernie, though it looks like when he got a bit of a bad deal, if you look at wikileaks. athletes, they make them take a drug test. i think we should take a drug test prior to the debate. why don't we do that? prioruld take a drug test . i don't know what is going on with her. at the beginning of her last debate, she was all pumped up at
the beginning. at the end, it was like, take me down, she could barely reach her car. it.ay, i am willing to do these people get rich stealing tor jobs and shipping them other countries all over the world. in particular, in your case, to mexico. i have so many friends in new england, so many great friends in new england, including tom brady and coach belichick. how good is tom? guards, well, maybe 3-4 three touchdowns. what a good coach. a great group of people.
this will finally be the year when the american people say enough is enough. secret meeting to a foreign bank, hillary clinton said her dream is to totally open trade and borders. that means the end of your jobs. by open trade she means foreign countries can she as out of millions and millions of jobs and trillions of dollars. that is what she means. it also means the end of the jobs that were taken by the disaster known as nafta. by open borders she means totally unlimited immigration. when she thought no one was listening, hillary clinton was plotting to the sovereignty of the united states. either we win this election or we lose this country. i really believe this is the last chance we have to win. i really believe it.
not going to happen again. willmp administration secure and defend our borders. will build the wall. >> build the wall! build the wall! mr. trump: a wall will not only keep out dangerous cartels and criminals, but it will keep out the drugs and heroine that is poisoning our youth. by the way, mexico, maybe they don't know it yet, mexico will pay for the wall 100%. helping us much
more with this problem if we had leadership in this country that said, folks, you better help. .hey are killing us they will pay for the wall in some form. believe me, there are about 12 forms they can do it. they will pick the one that looks the best. they will pay for it. forget, you were the ones. i won new hampshire, my first victory. when i won the primary, i promised the people of new hampshire that i would stop drugs from pouring into your community. you remember that? i said, i'm going to do it. with them, it is just talk and talk. of people that
make money on the drug business. i will have over $100 million spent on my campaign. plus, we have a lot of money coming in from small donors. night, why the other didn't you put something into your campaign? she doesn't want to do it. too greedy. now doubling down on my promise to the people of new hampshire. i can guarantee you, we will help all of those people. we will get them assistance and we are better. what, i love new hampshire. it had big impact on me. i think this is one of the most beautiful places. when i got to know the people --
i met with the groups and small groups -- i said, what is the biggest problem? .hey said, drugs i said, drugs, it doesn't work. it made an impression. i went from group to group, what is the biggest problem? heroine. you have unbelievable police here. the law enforcement groups. they are meeting me all over the place. unbelievable law enforcement. it is a pretty dramatic campaign. his -- this to dis-honored his pledge.
i would have honored it, no matter who won. they dishonored their pledge, not good. i got to know the community very well. i will tell you, will they ever forget? .t was a rough campaign some of these guys, some governors lost more viciously and in a more brutal contest than they ever have before. i was a business that with no experience. when i was four months into the campaign, they did a study. said, trump had four months of experience. them, community delete -- schema tpumathey had over 230
years. charles hammer said, donald trump has no experience and no chance. remember when, in massachusetts, i got almost 50% of the vote wi? 49.7%. we had like 11 people left. 50%.said, he did not get these are total losers. by the way, my people tell me we are up a lot in new hampshire. who knows? win newwe are going to hampshire big. .t made a big impact on me i got to know the people of new hampshire so well. they do not talk about all the other problems we had.
they said it was heroine pouring into the community. i said to them, if i win, i get elected president, i'm going to solve that problem. i mean it's so much, maybe more than ever. you are the ones who really showed me the gravity of the drugs, pouring in, mostly from the southern border into our community. we will take care of it. new hampshire is one of the highest drug overdose rates, if you look at it, and death rates in the country. it is hard to believe. we have to solve this crisis. we will. i have to give credit to my running mate, mike pence. has he been great? great guy. the mandatory minimum for those
addiction.with inhas done such a good job indiana. he has been such a loyal friend to me. i appreciate it. karen.e then great. that was a good choice. leadership is about who you pick . by the way, did he not the hell out of tim kaine? [applause] mr. trump: that was like the new england patriots playing my high school football team. a must make similar efforts priority for our nation. not too long ago, we read about christopher honored and courtney griffin. a beautiful couple.
an overdose within one year of each other. their story of prescription and missedin, opportunities in the court system is why we need to plan to end the opioid epidemic. we have such an epidemic in this country. people do not know it. the people who do know it, sometimes it is too late. we have to and this epidemic. we will stop the flow of illegal drugs into our country. the number of heroin seizures on the board has tripled. it has to go much, much higher. i have received the first ever endorsement of our border patrol agents. just last week, our ice officers
. these are great people, by the way, people who want to do the job and are not allowed to do their jobs. under a trump administration, we will work with them to end the flow of drugs across our border. i asked them, how important is a wall? they said, so important, you have no idea. that made me feel good. we will also put an end to sanctuary cities, which refused to turn over illegal immigrants over drugd to turn traffickers for deportation. we will dismantle -- you know we have to do this -- dismantled the illegal immigrant cartels and violent gangs. ofwill send them swiftly out our country back to their countries, and they are not in.ing back a
if you remember, hillary clinton, when we brought killers, drug dealers, gang members back, and intelligently, the country said, we are not taking them, we don't want them. she said, bring them back. that is not going to happen with trump, believe me. case wherenot be one those people are brought to their country and brought back to our country. not one case. we will prosecute traffickers of illegal drugs and provide law enforcement and prosecutors with resources and support they need .o properly do their jobs president obama, who spends most of his time campaigning for crooked hillary -- this guy spends all his time campaigning.
he ought to be working on jobs and lowering taxes. excommunicated the sentences of high-level drug traffickers. can you believe this? i mean, the whole thing, honestly, the whole thing is unbelievable. she is not winning because everything she touches is terrible. in new hampshire, why am i not up through the roof? hillary clinton, when you look at her, let look at her, everything she touches turns bad. her foreign policies are a disaster. her views on the border are a disaster. she wants to everyone flowing to the country. she wants syrian refugees pouring into our country. we have no idea who they are or where they come from.
expand this to approach, turning our streets back over to gangs, drug cartels , an armed career criminal's that we won't be able to get out of the country. i want everything to be law, justice, order, and everything perfect, but folks, we got to take our country back. we got to take our country back. over the last few years, this administration has been steadily dismantling the federal, criminal justice system, especially with respect to her. it's been totally dismantled. i will tell you what, there has never been a lower day in the history of the fbi of the justice department in this period of time. tens of thousands of drug dealers have been released from prison, and they have been released early, including many illegal immigrants regardless of their history of violence or ties to transnational gangs or cartels.
they are released early all the time. they get off for good behavior and within an hour they are back doing their same thing. we will close the shipping loopholes sending dangerous drugs across our borders and into the hands of our postal service. the traffickers use the postal service to mail drugs to users and dealers all over the united states. it comes right through the mail. that won't be happening. the truck administration will crackdown on this abuse and give law enforcement the tools they need to accomplish this mission and rapidly. rapidly. [applause] fix the we will misguided rules and regulations that have made this problem worse. it is a tragedy enough that so many americans are struggling with life-threatening addiction.
we are going to work with them. the biggest problem. thatould not compound tragedy with government policies and bureaucratic rules that make it even harder for them to get the help that they so desperately need. the fda has been far too slow to approve abuse-deterring drugs. they have drugs that can really help, and it doesn't happen. four years and years they study. these are people who are dying in committing suicide. we have to move it along and there are things that are amazing that they have and they are not approving them. when the fda has approved these medications, the rules have been far too restrictive, severely limiting the number of authorized subscribers and patience doctors can treat. we had millions and millions of people and our country who are badly addicted and will die soon.
we have to move it along. recovery medications have the potential to save thousands and thousands of lives. we prescribe opioids like oxycontin. we do that freely, but when patients become addicted to those drugs, we stop doctors from getting patients to treatments they medically need to get better. it will help. it will help. and many of these people are going to be dying. what is taking so long? years and years. as president, i will work to lift the cap on the number of patients they treat. they have a cap. dea to reduceme, the amount of scheduled 2 opioids, drugs like oxycontin, methadone, and fentanyl.
5% of the world's population, but use 80% of prescription opioids. that's an amazing statistic. finally, we will give people struggling with addiction access to the help they need. congress has are retaken the first step by passing -- congress has already taken the first of bypassing the recovery act. this legislation is an important step in the right direction. i will expand incentives for states to use drug courts. have done an amazing job. they are against a fight that is unbelievable. your police have done an amazing job. [applause] they can be cost effective, appropriate, and humane, and the response to the addiction can be incredible.
i would dramatically expand access to treatments, and and medicaid policies that obstruct inpatient treatment. we got to do this. i would dramatically first .esponders' access to narcan a d it is an antidote that save thousands of lives and is supposedly amazing. there are amazing things out there, but we are not getting -- that we are not able to use them. too many of our brave veterans have been prescribed these prescription drugs. v.a. has been such a disaster all of the country and we are going to take care of our veterans better than they had been taken care of before. remember that.
[applause] our veterans, in many cases, are not treated as well. remember this -- they are not treated as well as illegal immigrants who come pouring into the country. veterans are going to be taken care of really well for the first time. these are our great people. [applause] together, these steps will ensure that every american struggling with addiction has access to the care and the help he or she needs. in most cases, and in some cases, desperately needs. if we are going to bring hope back into our communities, we only have to solve lots of problems, but we also have to solve the problems of the economic crisis that we have because we have an economic crisis. jobs are gone. our companies, a lot of them have left.
a lot of our best companies have left. dilapidatednd communities, rusted out factory, and shattered dreams. we drive around here and you see buildings that were thriving 20 years ago, and now those companies are located in mexico and other places. not going to happen, folks. [applause] at the center of our economic revival, the will be fixing our terrible trade deals. just terrible. you look at nafta, you look at what's happened. speaking of that, 47 million americans are living in poverty. 45 million americans are on food stamps. think of that, in this country. we have nearly an $80 billion trade deficit in goods in the world since the great depression. it is not a recovery. and wally a recovery
street because it is a big fat bubble that will explode as soon as interest rates go up. not want toes raising interest rates because he does not want to go down the way he should go down. big fat, ugly bubble. you watch. it is horrible. it is horrible that he has been able to get away with this. and he has doubled the debt over his short tenure. over eight years, he would have doubled the debt to $20 trillion. from10 train dollars to -- $10 trillion to $20. trillion dollars. . we have not even started yet. our airports are a laughingstock all over the world. this is the legacy of
obama-clinton. sustainable -- the state of new hampshire has lost manufacturing jobs since nafta. since china into the world trade organization, another bill hillary backed, and this is a bill clinton deal also come and listen to this because i thought this was a mistake. 70,000 factories have shut down, or left the head of states. 70,000. millions of jobs. andnt back to my people said, you made a typo. it couldn't be 70,000 factories. sadly, it was not a typo. that is 15 factories at a closing on average. 15 a day.
but 15 factories. we are living through the greatest jobs' theft in the history of the world. never in the history of the world has there been a theft of jobs like what other countries have done to the united states. here, just about the top-of-the-line, you understand that. there she goes, she says, no getting. they know, you know. mattel,eed chrysler, hundreds and hundreds are moving their jobs to mexico. i am telling you right now, companies are negotiating from this area to move to mexico. not pretty. i am elected,- if it is not going to happen because they will know that if they go to mexico and they built their product in mexico in one to sell it into the united states, and they are going to fire all of these people whether
it is new hampshire or anywhere else, they are going to pay a 35% tax on that product coming back in and they are not going to move. no chance of them moving. [applause] you know what? i have been watching for 10 , theyfederal government given zero interest loans and give them all sorts of things. when you tell them there are consequences to pay when you fire people from this area, or any area in the united states, and you think you are going to move somewhere and make product and sell it to us. ? no. no. we are not going to be the stupid people anymore. i visited the sylvania plant. does anybody make a television set in the united states? we don't make anything anymore.
i buy thousands of television sets again. everything is south korea, right? you have all south korea. lg, everything. can we find somebody in the united states? see than insulting a have not seen that name and a long time because they moved. they close their doors and 2017 -- in 2014 and moved their jobs to mexico. your jobs are done. they are gone. if i win, day one, we will announce our plans to totally renegotiate nafta. [applause] if we don't get the deal b-1s, we will leave nafta and start over again and we will make much better trade deals. we are going to have good trade deals. we are going to have trade deals with jobs coming into our
country. we will have two main highways, not one. right now, our trade deal, nafta -- by the way, the worst trade deal ever made in the world. systems,ok at the tax they are different. when the deal was made, they made a mistake and nobody ever fixed the mistake. they started off with a 16 percent advantage. they made a mistake. it is a defective deal. how often do you see deals going the other way? they are all going to mexico. it is better than hiring a consultant. , i set out hise business -- i said how is business? where are you building? he said mexico. he is from united states. i said, how was mexico doing?
he said, donald, it is the eighth wonder of the world and we are building some of the greatest plants in mexico. you have to see. i said, i don't want to see. so many companies are moving their now. how about the united states? he said, not good, not good. how stupid are we? how stupid are our leaders? it is campaign contributions, pacts, all of this stuff. even if they know better, and they are not all stupid, a lot of them are, but they won't do it because they have to care of their donors for special interests. i tell you this very strongly, to me, one of the most important statements, we are going to start making things again in america. [applause] you are going to see the day
during my term that apple opens up in this country and apple and apple makenies like their product in this country. forget about china, forget about -- "usa"]ng remember this, with me, it is america first. america first. we are going to have good relationships with mexico. i met with the president of mexico two months ago. i am sure you read about it. he is a nice guy. he is a very nice guy. we are going to have a great relationship with mexico, but we have to explain to mexico, it is a two-way street, not a one-way street. it has got to come both ways. we get the drugs, the
unemployment. they get the cash, the companies, and the jobs. i would say that is not a good deal, don't you think? to be americaing first and we are going to see apple another companies like apple opening plants in this country. believe me, it is going to happen. it is going to happen as sure as you are standing there, that is going to happen. as part of the plan to bring back jobs, we are going to lower our business tax from 35% to two 15%. -- to 15%. bringing trillions and trillions of dollars in wealth back into our country. you have many companies leaving our country to get their money. the taxes are so high and bureaucracy is even worse. manufacturers will be able to expense the cost of new investment and equipment to help much moreountry
competitive because we are not even competitive now. we are the highest tax major country in any where in the world by far. we are going to be one of the lower tax. i would like to say the lowest, but we won't be, but will be one of the lower tax in the world. we will lower taxes massively. hillary is looking to raise your taxes massively, massively. great jobsome the magnet of the world. wages will rise. jobs will return. the factory set i told her about will come rushing back onto our shores. [applause] here are some up, of the amazing things we are going to do for our country starting in 2017. and remember, it only works november 8, you got to get out, you got to vote. you got to vote.

[applause] rebuild for our great, great people and the military, we are going to rebuild our depleted military, and we are going to take care of our veterans. [applause] we are going to repeal and replace obamacare. [applause] very important for new hampshire, this is under siege. we are going to save our second amendment.

that republicans don't want to see happening 24 days before election day. host: has anybody been benefiting from this? who benefits most and who is hard most? guest: it remains to be seen. in the initial polling, we are seeing some trump supporters turning away from some of these other republicans that they are mad at for turning against trump. it is interesting to watch some of these pro-trump delegates that were with him all the way to the convention urging other republicans to vote out some of these. there is a republican national committee in nevada telling them it is time to vote out in a republican who is opposed to donald trump. it is a sight to see. host: you wrote about that and the examiner this week. that a republican national committee member and
nevada is urging republicans to vote out elected gop officials who oppose donald trump, rnc committee woman who serves on the gop's 2016 rules committee tweeted a list of gop rats she wanted republicans to vote out in november. it reads, here is a list of gop rats who have jumped ship and a banded donald trump. abandonedship and donald trump. vote them out. what effect are you expecting this to have? guest: it makes a divide in the party that exist in the party even wider. trump list want to see this expand. who was been involved in the process is trying to fracture it even further and did rid of some of those people. it certainly can't help republicans feared host: we are
talking to ryan lovelace from examiner talking about the presidential race of 2016. those who support hillary clinton can call 202-748-8000. the supporters can call 202-748-8001. third-party supporters can call 202-748-8002, and undecided voters can call 202-748-8003. let's take a look at another piece, the colorado race. you wrote this week, colorado senate candidate carol glenn is reconsidering voting for donald trump three days after withdrawing his endorsement and urging trump to quit. call on thato after the release of the video last week. he said at the time, as a father, christian, and a republican, i believe we simply cannot tolerate a nominee who speaks of -- who speak that way
about women, but three days later after his condemnation of trump, publicly reconsidered voting for him and said like many, i was appalled at the language. but the prospect of a clinton presidency is also unacceptable and i believe strongly that are liberal policies would be disastrous for colorado and the united states. tell us about this shifting. are you seeing more of that among the dozens of republicans who backed out of their support of trump? guest: i have. glenn's struggles representative of the struggle that so many republicans are facing an are trying to decide how to maneuver when it comes to trump. there are all these stories about trump and his relationships to women. some of these candidates don't
"the washington examiner." everybody talks about the immigrant and all of this stuff. older people are getting abused every day in nursing homes. nobody is saying nothing about that. host: let's talk about the messaging you have seen in the selection cycle. i think that's one of the things that has gotten lost in recent days, especially as the debates have come and gone the including the, vice presidential debate. it's been about personality,
it's been about character. it hasn't been as much about issues. those kinds of things are distracting from the actual issues that undecided voters are toing to weigh right now, the extent that there are undecided voters choosing between clinton and trump and not just choosing to vote for the republican or democrat or stay home entirely. host: let's talk about a senate race we talked about last segment, the new hampshire senate race and the issue of vote splitting. the race between kelly ayotte and maggie hassan in new hampshire. irrespective of ideological bent, mr. trump has left republicans no place to hide.
as mr. trump slumps in the polls, their hope is to benefit from the increasingly rare voting. of split ticket how much split ticket voting do you expect to see this year? guest: we will see more than we have seen in the last two election cycles. with respect to kl -- kelly ayotte -- during the recent debate that she had where she was talking about trump and whether or not -- having to walk that back, then all these revelations coming out, audio of trump talking about women and disparaging ways, has complicated things for her. in some ways, the split ticket voting that is going on isn't ideological so much as it is personality and character driven. people that have disagreements along those character lines may still vote for these republicans down ballot while choosing to go independent.
bob is calling in from new jersey. good morning, bob. caller: i've been listening to all these things and c-span and stuff. thatd it unbelievable these things that are done by the clinton administration and the fact that she is a criminal. there is nobody in this world that can ever think that she can't be indicted on a least or two or three or four or all five. i can't believe this country and what they are doing and listening to clinton, they are going to decimate this country. busting phones, hiding stuff. i can't understand how people actually believe that hillary clinton actually can be elected to this country. host: let's give ryan lovelace a chance to respond. think bob's frustration
is representative of a lot of people that consider themselves to be never hillary. there are so many things right now that are features of both candidates' campaigns that are being overlooked because of all the sort of unusual campaign issues. there are things in e-mails that have been leaked by wikileaks regarding mrs. clinton and her campaign statements, ranging from everything about the attorney general to their views on catholicism that in an ordinary election would be bombshells. and i think there are things on the other side of the aisle for trunk that are similar but because of what has gone on and the unusually vitriolic nature of this campaign, it has been more strident than in the past. a lot of this is for the time being crowded out by a lot of this discussion about trumps relationship with women and all of that. host: let's look at what cnbc's jake novak said about the so-called gop civil war.
that republicans like john mccain and house speaker paul ryan have had so much trouble accepting -- what's your reaction to that? it's interesting to note when we hear trump supporters talk about how donald trump won more votes in the republican nominee ever,ny he also had other people voting against him.
republicans haven't done that in the same way. democrats were more effective at doing that and because they have been able to do that, their party isn't dead, but they were still able to keep everyone united. a caller from riverdale, illinois. go ahead. i can see why the gop is split. donald trump has a serious problem. what he said about john mccain was the word seven idiot, because he's never been in war. maybe if he thinks he was a prisoner of war, that if he got in there and was locked up and threw one of his classic tantrums and chumps up and down, they would have let him go. that would not have work that way. the things donald trump says out of his mouth is ridiculous and that's why i'm supporting hillary clinton.
what do you think about a comments about senator mccain? guest: it's interesting that mccaintrump's feud with -- they seem more personal than his remarks about other republicans. i remember when he first went after senator mccain, talking about election were heroes that are captured and that sort of thing. it's been going on since that time. in his tweets this week we have seen come from his account that are directed a republicans versus directed at others, the individualed atit's been republicans, they come from an android device which analysis have shown appear to be trump himself as opposed to his campaign staff. it's interesting that he's elevating these personal feuds he had during the primary at this crucial time in the general election. host: let's see what donald trump said at a individual
recent campaign stop in florida about the lack of support he's receiving from the republican party. >> already the republican nominee has a massive disadvantage, and especially when you have the leaders not putting their weight behind the people. instead of calling me and saying congratulations, you did a great job, you destroyed her at the ,ebate like everybody said wouldn't you think that paul ryan would call and say, good going. in front of just about the largest audience for a second night debate in the history of the country. you'd think they would say, great going, don, let's go. let's beat this crook. no, he doesn't do that. there's a whole deal going on there.
as a whole deal going on. we are going to figure it out. i always figure things out. there's a whole sinister deal going on. host: what's your reaction to that? guest: those remarks are fascinating, because they have even rankled people within his .wn campaign newt gingrich was out there this week saying, there's a big trump any little trump and little trumpet is pathetic. and those are his words. trump was a phone call from paul ryan when in newt gingrich's mind, you should be focusing on hillary is. i think trump's comments looking ahead or after the election. he's just as interested in maintaining his base of support in deciding not only where the selection, how it turns out, but also where the party goes. that's a lot of what he is saying there. host: we are talking with the campaign reporter from "the also aton examiner," previous reporter for national
review. he's also written for the weekly standard and "the daily caller." up next we have a caller from philadelphia. if your daughter came and told you your neighbor you, would-- groped you be on attack mode or do the same thing trump is doing? my personal response to that, i wouldn't say one way or the other, try to do what i would -- say what i would do personally. i recognize this is a contentious issue. a controversial issue. we've seen donald trump's reaction to a lot of these assaultarassment and allegations against him has been interesting. it's different from the way other candidates have approached it. he seemed to imply at a rally recently that one of the women
who had accused him, he sort of suggested, just look at her, then you would know that it couldn't have possibly been true, as if there was something in her look that would reveal whether or not the allegations were true. it's an interesting tactic to try to respond to that, and it's going to be interesting to see how he come that's some of these more allegations that are continuing to tumble out day after day. host: hillary clinton supporter, good morning. caller: good morning. i'm going to respond on something i heard a person say a couple of days ago on c-span. be ablesaying we should to forgive donald trump because what he did was five years ago. i thought, if we can forgive him comeis transgressions, how you can't forgive bill clinton for his transgressions that
happened many more years ago? christian, i'm thinking, certain people can be forgiven, and other people can't. when i read the bible in matthew, it does not say that. what do you think about the differences between the accusations against trump and what bill clinton has been accused of? caller: -- guest: there is a lot of equating of both of them from each candidate. it's interesting to see, with regards to the idea of forgiveness, forgiving actions that happen some time ago, this has been an issue that both candidates and their campaigns tried to leverage individually for them. hillary clinton's remarks about the deplorables are something that republicans have been hammering her with for some time now, the idea that half of trump supporters are irredeemable, they are not able to be forgiven in the same way. it is something that hillary
--trying toalso have some of the accusers of bill clinton approach him physically after the debates. days ofing to the final debate,paign, the next this is certainly going to be something that just gets even more combative. debate, this is certainly going to be something that just gets even more combative. there's no sign that it's going to turn back up and get away from the lowbrow commentary that has already been going on. host: let's talk about potential split ticket voting. you wrote a piece about the nevada race there. you set a new nevada poll shows gop senate candidate joe heck clinging to a three-point lead while donald trump trails hillary clinton by six points in the state. hex decision to rescind his trump endorsement is helping him
. the poll came out a day after a left-leaning pull from public ahead byund cortez nine points. a difference in situations where the decision to back away from trump helps a candidate versus those it seems to hurt? caller: there is some pulling out there that suggests that these republican candidates -- it has not heard him just yet. it's hurting trump but not having huge coattail effect. donald trump's coattails weren't quite so long. it will be interesting to see whether people apply trump's statements to the republican party writ large are not. at this point, that hasn't happened. it's interesting to watch some of this polling, especially pulling out of indiana that shows kind of before these comments and revelations and accusations by women were made public. he is still ahead by a few points. pullon was starting to
ahead. there are certain states where that will be key races will determine the balance of the senate. down ballot, that will determine the balance of the senate. down ballot, it will be interesting to watch, whether it has any effect. host: dave is a donald trump supporter calling in for michigan. anybody that knows a donald trump as i used to know him back in atlantic city -- i knew him, he did not know me -- would know that donald is not -- women. he walks down the boardwalks from point a to point b. he has 15 or 16 girls at his coattails like a bunch of groupies with a rockstar. -- gook aboutbook what he did to women is a lie. i'mcampaign against nafta, a designer in detroit. i helped design many factories that left this nation. 70,000 businesses left this station during the clinton and bush era.
many of those factories. the hard automation and high-tech automation. went down there. in than the factories shut down here in america. under the clinton administration, but the one conversation, i was talking to people at buick. i said, why are you doing this. you are going to turn flint into a landfill because that's all they have. and he said, the country of mexico is paying the u-haul truck to move them down. and the government of america is giving them carrots to move. think those two points are very important. it's interesting to watch with respect to donald trump's relationships with women and you are talking about how he had women around him all the time. throughout much of his career as a reality television star, even as a businessman and promoter, donald trump cultivated the image of a playboy, somebody that people wanted to be around.
and now his opponent is leveraging that against him. rather than trying to dispute that or go back on the offensive , donald trump has gone after republicans this week, paul ryan, john mccain, the party writ large. regardless of whether or not the accusations are true, the political ramifications are being felt for that reason. with respect to the issue of trade and donald trump's position as opposed to nafta, talking about fair trade as opposed to free trade, he does say he wants free trade as long as it is fair. it will be interesting to watch how this issue shakes out after the election just as much before so. it's a thing that the republican base, the populist voters are going to want to see continued, but the republican establishment, so-called republican leadership, that kind of nexus of people, there is a divide there. they are more open to free trade and that will be a big fight,
especially into 2017. democratic leader nancy pelosi predicted that donald trump will help democrats retake the house. what do you think the chances of that are? are seeing republicans increasingly concerned about that. when they are showing public signs of frustration it would seem to suggest when they are going out there i doing that, it's time for people to start considering the possibility. paul ryan instructing in some ways, hitting at least that other congressional people that are in tough congressional races can kind of distance themselves would lead you to believe the republicans are concerned about this possibility. the election cycle, everything kind of turns the hour as opposed to the day or week.
there's a possibility that all of this can be said itself several times over. but if they don't, republicans do appear to be concerned about the possibility that the house does flip, which is something -- while it still remains a long shot, is something that wasn't even on the horizon just a few months ago. focusing onimes" one of those races between virginia's barbara comstock and democratic challenger bennett. it says nathan gonzalez estimates the republicans have already lapped up 217 seats. they need only 218 to keep their majority. voters who would typically support republicans might become so disillusioned that they choose to stay home. how about that? we talked a little bit about the fear that voter turnout could be
depressed this year? guest: the potential for voters to stay home, the threat is greater than it has been before. it's greater than it has been in recent years, and really the way we have seen candidates that are down ballot disassociate themselves from trump and run local races. the candidates that have done the most effective jobs of doing that our people like ohio senator rob portman, who's up for reelection, who has run a campaign far outpacing donald trump in ohio, even where trump had a lead there, albeit slight. ab portman has made that race local race. he hasn't gone out and talked .bout trump so much he's been able to block and pivots away from questions about trump. it's going to be incumbent on the republican party in these local races to say, come out for me. if you don't vote for the top of
the ticket, just got to come out for me. whether they have the infrastructure to do that, that will be tested this time. host: don is calling from georgia. he's been able to block and pivots away from questions about trump. thatgoing to becaller: my onlys if donald trump is elected, we -- because of the sexual predator and talented. that's one of the reasons the republican party don't want to support trump, because he's a world embarrassment. this piece to the issue of personality and character and the kind of person that voters want to see as their president. both candidates have made it just about the other candidates fitness for office. hillary clinton wants to make the election referendum on donald trump, trump a referendum on hillary clinton. in this next debate, one of the topics is expected to be fitness for office.
this kind of an issue will be chief among them, and that has been driven by the voters. voters are more concerned with the individual candidate's personalities. we've heard from gentleman earlier today saying hillary clinton is a criminal. aren't campaign issues. this isn't trade, the economy, and jobs. that will be reflected in the debate in the final 24 days. host: on friday paul ryan talked tout what republicans need win in congress in order to counter what he calls hillary clinton's liberal progressive policy. >> the america they want, the driving force is the state. it's a place where government is taken away from the people, where we are ruled by a cold and unfeeling bureaucracy to .eplaces original thinking where the government twists the law and constitution itself to suit its purposes. it's a place for liberty is under assault, where the very
.tuff of life is extinguished that is the america hillary clinton wants. if given control of washington, if given control of congress, it is the kind of america she will stop at nothing to have. we've seen speaker ryan distance himself a bit from donald trump but at the same time he is speaking in a -- in dark and ominous tones about hillary clinton. guest: he is still making the case about clinton but no longer going against making the case for trump. bes also going to interesting to see the way republicans talk about the supreme court's as this animating issue. that's really something that will be determined by the next president. there is a potential in the lame-duck session depending on
whether hillary clinton or donald trump wins for something to happen there. i would expect that to be a crucial animating factor to separate from the presidential campaign this issue of how this election is going to turn out. paul ryan i think is also concerned with, it appears anyway, making sure that he is still doing everything within his power to go against hillary clinton so that after the blame is being pointed against, all different republicans for what they did or didn't do, he will still at that point be able to say, i fought against hillary clinton day after day. whether or not the republican primary voters that voted for donald trump avoid that, doesn't seem to be likely. host: a donald trump is not staying out of the states that valid ticket races. today he will be back in new hampshire, back in portsmouth. donald trump pushing hard to away -- votes.
the rally would be trump's second appearance in the granite state this month, and that report is from wmur. you can see donald trump's address in new hampshire today in portsmouth at noon. you can catch that on c-span as well as online at [applause] -- c-span.org and on c-span radio. caller: i think this is the only place where i actually get to see or hear excerpts of speeches by donald trump. i see many times a very highly choreographed effort by the media to really just take him down. " hired 50ngton post journalists with the sole mission of digging up dirt on donald trump.
the wiki leaks things that have come out have completely shown the media working hand in glove with the clinton campaign to take him down. it's unbelievable. i think c-span for that, because i've never seen such a choreographed bit of propaganda in my life. host: do you have a question? what do you think of jill stein's comments that came out yesterday with regards to nuclear war and how she feels hillary clinton will start a nuclear war against russia by instituting a no-fly zone over syria? stein, hert jill candidacy at this point is something that has been a problem for hillary clinton all along. the degree to which it is a problem for her, hillary clinton is not having to deal with it as much as some might have thought in this contested election that
a third-party candidate like her would have gotten more traction. railstein is going to against hillary clinton. she will continue to do so. she is pulling away some of those disaffected bernie sanders supporters despite centers support for clinton. it has been fascinating to watch politicians, republicans working on the campaigns of other candidates throughout the primary laments as way the media has treated general election. they are disappointed with the vetting of donald trump now as opposed to earlier. people are complaining about the the media is covering trump and the trump campaign. there was nothing stopping the media from doing this in the republican primary. conservative media organizations have as much capability of uncovering these things and they didn't. i think there's going to be a lot of -- hindsight is 2020.
there's going to be a lot of conservative media organizations that will have to look at themselves and wonder whether and why not they did not discover these things that "the washington post" and "the new york times" have. host: we have a hillary clinton supporter calling in. caller: good morning. about the concerned lack of real information that people have. i think you can't believe half of what you see, read, or hear during this crazy presidential election. julian assange has swore he will take hillary down. . when you look at the leaked e-mails being drawn by him, we know that at least one of them was totally a forgery because it was taken from a "newsweek" article and placed direcy
