[chanting] president trump: thank you. in our campaign for the presidency, we defied the pundits, the politicians, and the special interests, because ours was a movement of the people and it really was. it was a movement of you. it was a movement of the people. it was a movement to make america great again. it's happening. that's happening. and, by the way, how are your 401-ks doing? not too bad, right? over the weekend i was in new york city, and i love to say
hello to our folks in uniform, whether it's the military, whether it's law enforcement, and we had people backstage and i always want to take my time. a man came up, he was a police officer in new york city. the first time anyone said this to me. mr. president, i want to thank you, my family thinks i'm a financial genius, my 401-k is up 39% in nine months. [applause] i think it's going to be very hard for somebody to beat us in a few years, can you imagine now we're only talking about a few years, all you have to say is, with us, it goes up, with them it goes down and that's the end of the election, right? [applause] >> everyone is doing well and it going to be a lot better. we're going to do better and better. we're going to make our country great again and we're looking at
our country now as america first. america first. [chanting usa] >> so tonight we're going to speak straight to the american people and cut right through the fake news media. right through it. right through it. [applause] president trump: we're going to speak the plain truth and, really, the truth that you just want to hear, you have to hear. they don't want to hear it. but, an, by the way, did you see all the corrections the media has been making? they are saying, sorry, we made -- they have been doing that all year. they never apologized. maybe that comes with being the
president, i don't know. they have been apologizing left and right. they took this fraudster from abc. they suspended him for a month. they should have fired him for what he wrote. he drove the stock market down 350 points in minutes, which, by the way, tells you they really like me, right, when you think of it? and, you know what he cost people and i said to everybody, get yourself a lawyer and sue abc news. sue them. and then cnn apologized just a little while ago. they apologized, thank you, cnn, thank you so much, you should have been apologizing for the last two years. [applause]
president trump: what a group. what a group. but since the election, and they aren't going to argue with this, we've created 2.2 million new jobs. factories are coming back to our country. you know, we have factories pouring back into our country. did you ever think you would hear that? i used to tell you, that's going to happen. see, now there are consequences when companies close up their factories and move to another country, make a product and sell it right through. they have consequences now, and by the way, those consequences are getting very steep. and they are going up. there is no more of that stuff. there is no more. in november alone, you saw this today, we added 228,000 jobs. i watch these anchors this morning, they were devastated. oh, what's going on?
and honestly, we have a long way to go. we're going to do much better than this. i've been saying it, including another 33,000 new jobs in manufacturing. want to hear that, right? hispanic unemployment is the lowest ever recorded. any hispanics here? they want to build the wall, too. they want security. we're going to have the wall, don't worry. [chanting build that wall]
president trump: they want security. how about the cuban population in miami? we have cubans here tonight. good. was the number 86% in favor of trump a tremendous percentage? total unemployment is now at a 17-year low. thank you. not bad. [applause] not bad after 10 months. only going to get better. it is all psychological. that is what creates greatness. consumer confidence is at a 17 year high. think of that. it was not like that in your last administration. economic growth last quarter surged to 3.3%. you know it, you know where it was. when we started, did you know
where it was? bingo. 3.3%. and is going a lot higher. i used a hit, you will never hit 3% or 2.5%. if we did not have the hurricanes last quarter, we would have hit 4% and everyone would have said it is impossible. we had a couple of hurricanes. you heard about it? the stock market is hitting an all-time high record. think of this. 86 times since election day. 86 times it hit a record to read 86 times. and we are going to keep it going. and then you look at all of the money you folks are making. i wish i could take 10% or 15%, but i think you are not going to
do that. it is getting better and better. your pensions are getting bigger and bigger. your pension funds are happening. wait until you see what we are doing with health care. you will be happy. not the obamacare nightmare. not the obamacare nightmare. it is not been nightmare where your premiums are disaster. there is disaster. you watch, we have very good things happening with respect to health care. and the taxes are a part of it. you will see what happens right after taxes. with taxes, something great will get announced. we are getting rid of the individual mandate, that individual mandate, where you pay a lot of money for the privilege of not having to have insurance or health care.
so you pay for the privilege of not getting taken care of. isn't that a wonderful thing? we are going to repeal it. since the election, we have created more than $5 trillion in new economic wealth, just in the stock market alone. we're not including real estate. $5 trillion. and we are finally rebuilding our country, defending our citizens, and to fighting for our great american workers. -- and fighting for our great american workers. we are putting america first by renegotiating trade deals, renegotiating nafta, renegotiating our horrendous deal with south korea. i kept you out of the tpp, which
would have been a total disaster for you and everybody else. and we are making individual deals with these countries. when you get tied into 12 countries or 22 countries or 18 countries, you're stuck. it is a spider web. if you have 16 good ones and two bad ones, you cannot get out. when you have a deal one-on-one, a nice simple deal, with japan or south korea or whoever it may be, but they don't treat us right, we send them a letter of termination. [applause] pres. trump: these people say, tpp -- you have all these countries tied in, you cannot terminate. thank you very much. so you can't do what you have to do.
so you send out a letter of termination, give a 60 day notice or 30 day notice or six-month notice. they then come back because we're the big piggy bank people love robbing. the whole world robs it. they then come back and say, can we negotiate? and we have a better deal than we started with. you cannot do it when you have many countries tied in. i color the spider's web. there are washington lobbyist, politicians and bureaucrats who do not want to see things change. they made a fortune. areas around washington, d.c. are the richest areas in the country. you saw it last night. we have five areas among the richest in the country. that is because everybody is making a fortune and people outside of the area are paying for the money they are making. we're not going to have it. they like things the way things used to be. they don't like it so much now.
but they are doing well also. their stocks are going up. i do not know if there is anything i can do to prevent it for those people. [laughter] pres. trump: but they call themselves the resistance. have
you seen these signs, resist, resist? [applause] pres. trump: i love these guys, blacks for trump, i love you. i love you. [applause] pres. trump: i love you. by the way, now that you bring up, black homeownership just hit the highest level it has ever been in the history of our country. congratulations. [applause]
pres. trump: oh, these resistors resist. hillary resisted. and you know what happened? she lost the election in a landslide. you know what they are resisting? they are resisting the will of the american people. that is what they are resisting. [crowd chanting] pres. trump: look, it has been proven we have a rigged system. it does not happen so easy. but this system, there will be a lot of changes. this is a rigged system. this is a sick system from the inside. there is no country like our country, but we have a lot of
sickness in some of our institutions. and we are working very hard. we have a lot of them straightened out. but we really do, we have to rigged -- we have a rigged system in this country. we have to change it. terrible, terrible. they are resisting progress, resisting change, because the only thing they care about is protecting what they have been able to do, which is really, control the country, and not to your benefit. by the way, wages starting to go up, the first time in 20 years. that is all going to happen. that is all going to happen. it is a part of what is going on. we are going to have choice. we have choice in education now. i thought of it the other day. we will have choice in jobs so
you don't have one jobs and hang on even though you don't like it. you will have choice where you can take five jobs, six jobs, pick the one you like with the best money. that is what will happen because the jobs are coming in. that is what is starting to happen. thanks to general mattis and the military leader is and allies. mad dog mattis, mad dog mattis. thanks to mad dog mattis and other great leaders, isis is being defeated, one defeat after another. not only are we defeating these killers, these savage killers, horrible, horrible.
you don't even want to say people. these are savage killers. over there, we sure as hell don't want them to come over here, i am sorry. i am sorry. you know, they come back to some countries and come in, we make it a difficult process. they go out and kill people and then they go back home to mom and dad. before they went nutso and came back here, we make it difficult. we are watching every single one. we have thousands of people under surveillance. surveillance, that sounds familiar. remember when i suggested something like that, everyone said trump, why did he say that? turns out i was right about that one, was indicted? -- wasn't i?
america is respected again abroad, and we are taking care of our citizens at home. we will have safety. we have a lot more now. we're getting rid of the ms-13 animals. we will have safety again. because america is more than just a place or map. america is a nation, america is a family, america is ours to love and cherish and protect and take care of and that is what we are doing. we will take air of this country for our children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren. and we will not let people take to our country that will destroy our country -- come into our country that will destroy our country. [crowd chanting usa]
pres. trump: and that may or may not be politically correct, but honestly, i do not care. we have to do the right thing. we have to do the right thing. our agenda is profamily, pro-police, pro-workers, and 100% pro-america. [applause] pres. trump: that is why i recently went through the united states from the united nations plans for global governance of immigration and refugee policy. no borders. they had a plan, no borders. they had a plan, no borders. i heard about it recently. i said, what you talking about,
no borders? no borders, everybody can come in. if you don't mind, i rejected that plan. is that ok? [applause] pres. trump: i told them, not only do we want borders, we want strong borders, borders on top of borders. america is a sovereign country. we set our immigration rules. we do not listen to foreign bureaucrats. we do not listen to other countries telling us how we should be running our immigration, thank you very much. [applause] pres. trump: we are also getting smart and tough on trade. i have been talking about this for a long time. it is one of the reasons i am here, one of the reasons i am president. we are renegotiating the disastrous trade agreements of nafta, south korea, so many
others. we will hopefully keep nafta. and that is ok. left forfactories have mexico? we now have a trade deficit with million and that does not include all of the drugs that were over the border because we do not have the wall. 71 billion dollars. think of this. we have a trade deficit with mexico of $71 billion. we have a pretty good trade deficit with canada. some say we have a surplus with canada but i say no and i
like the prime minister. nice guy. good guy.
i like him. but we had a meeting, he said, no, no, you have a
trade surplus. i said, we don't. he said, you have a trade surplus. i said, mr. prime minister, we do not. he said how do you snow i said because we don't have a trade surplus with anybody. he said, i'm telling you that canada as a deficit with the united states. told my people, in front of a lot of people. said, go out and check. and he was right. except he forgot a few categories, lumber, timber and energy, other than that he was right. when you add them together we have $17 billion deficit with canada, right? he forgot a couple of
categories. i just got back from asia. i brought back $300 billion worth of deals. and that number is going to go higher, and these are numbers that are going to produce a lot of jobs in our country; we of going to end the theft of american intellectual property, track down on china's trade abuses, and confront countries that cheat, of which many of them are in that category, sadly. we will get back our country. we will take back our country. we will make those great trade deals and we will have unbelievable amounts of jobs created and factories created. and we will do what other countries do. we will start buying american. we want to buy our products. we will start hiring americans, and we will
stay american and be proud of it, and that's what is happening more and more. that's why you see all the red hats and those white hats. i love those hats. that is why one of my very first acts as president was to withdraw the united states from the job-killing trans-pacific partnership. had to do it. we also cancelled the one job killing regulation that you see after another, one after another, beating the mark of any previous president. now, we have -- a great article in "the wall street journal" the other day. full page. in the history of our country, nobody, nobody even close -- these are longer terms than ten months -- that in ten months i've done more on knocking out regulations than any other president in our history. you know who what right up there? honest abe lincoln. can you believe it? he was a regulation cutter. can you
believe it? lincolnand -- abraham was a regulation cutter. who would have known that. i said you mean i beat abraham lincoln? that's pretty good for ten months. i don't know if regulations sounds so glamorous but it's very important. but we have lot of others. we have statutory requirements where you have to give a 90-day notice and another 90-day notice and then a cooling off period and then a 30-day notice. they were all in the works. and you are going to see a lot more cutting of regulation. we have done more than any other president and it's not even close. and we haven't even started. [cheers and applause] and as promised -- i used to come out here -- i've been here three times. i love it i just keep coming back. just keep coming back. oh, boy, oh, boy, i'll tell you, when we were
doing well, during that beautiful election, when we were doing well all over florida, i said, was the pensacola area included yet? and they said, no. i said, guess what? we just won that election. as promised, remember, i announced that i would withdraw america, the united states, from the horrible, for us -- good for a countries -- great for other countries -- from the horrible paris climate accord. costs is a fortune, so china doesn't start until around 2030, i think.
russia doesn't have to go back to, like, a recent day. they go back to somewhere in the 1990s, which was a high pollution time. other countries we end up giving money to. this would have been one of the best great catastrophes, and i could come back into the deal at a much better price. they'd love me back. my could -- i could come back into the paris accord, and i like the people. i really like emanuel, i like so many of the people involved. but i could come back, it's like -- i don't get it. i don't see it. i want clean air. i want crystal clear and clean water. i want things that they won't have. and i don't want to pay the kind of numbers you're talking about. if we stayed with those numbers, we would have had to close factories and businesses in order to qualify by 2025.
can you imagine, ladies and gentlemen, we're violating the accord. in the meantime, some of those countries are spewing stuff out that you wouldn't believe. and we would be closing up. now we could maybe change the deal, then we'd gut sued by all the people -- nobody sues china. with us they sue. i approved immediately after we took office, the keystone xl and dakota access pipeline. 48,000 jobs. we lifted the restrictions
on american energy, including shale, oil, natural gas, and clean, beautiful, coal, of which we have a thousand years of supply, and we're putting miners back to work. did you see west virginia dish love west virginia. west virginia, i love west virginia. so west virginia people were saying, oh, trouble. coal will never come back, in the meantime they're buying it in vietnam from us, the president of vietnam says that is the finest coal we have ever purchased. they're buying it from us. so west virginia, the numbers just out, great governor of west virginia, numbers just come out. west virginia has the biggest percentage increase in gdp of any state in our union, except for texas. it was second. how is that? how is that? and they said, oh, cold -- coal will never come back. now we're opening mines and drills and all sorts of thing. windmills are
wonderful but when the wind doesn't blow, they do cause problems. we have no energy this week, hopefully the wind will start blowing pretty soon. we are pursuing american energy dominance, and by the end of this year we will be totally self-sufficient. we will be major exporters of energy. we will take a massive amount of money. we well state paying off our $20 trillion in debt. my administration is also leading the charge to rebuild our military. the military. [cheers and applause] we're supporting our troops and their wonderful military family is, including those right here in the cradle of naval aviation, the home of the legendary blue angels. people don't realize that. by the way, can those people fly or what? how about naval air
station pepsi-cola. -- pensacola. good place? and it's really time -- this is in a republican thing or a democratic thing or anything. it's time for democrats in congress to drop the threats of shutdowns of government. and support a clean appropriations bill that fully supports and funds our military. we can't play games anymore. we can't play games. and don't forget, we make the greatest missiled, the greatest military equipment anywhere in the world.
nobody is close. what does it also mean? to me it's secondary in this case. what does it also mean? jobs, jobs. but we are building our military stronger, and and by the time i decide to go off into the wild blue yonder, you'll have the strongest military this country has ever had by far. it's wrong and dangerous for congressional democrats to hold troop funding hostage for amnesty, letting people pour into our country, we don't know who they are or where they come from. you saw what happened with beautiful kate steinle. this guy, he said he didn't know it was gun. oh, he didn't know. oh. he didn't know
it was gun. that's his new line. you notice the federal government came in and brought another suit against him. right? we'll come. in that was a total miscarriage of justice. hi didn't know it was a gun. the real changes that we're facing are the drugs and gangs pouring into the country. millions of people overstaying visas. chain migration that cost tax pairs billions of dollars and sanctuary cities that set free violent criminal aliens all over our
country, and protect that. people come in and they're not necessarily good, like the man that ran over the -- the animal that ran over many people in new york city the other day. you saw that. two months ago. he runs
over people. guess on a beautiful -- i know it so well, the west side highway. i i know so it well. so beautiful. people running, jogging, trying to get in shape. he killed many people. ran them over. chain migration. according to chain migration, he may may have as many as 22 to 24 people that came
in with him. his grandfather, his grandmother, his mother, his father, his brothers and sisters. we have to end chain migration. we have to end chain migration. i mean you go to kate who was such a beautiful young american woman, killed on a pier in san francisco in the prime of her life. killed by this guy, an illegal alien who lad been deported five times and convicted seven times of felony. and i guess they weren't allowed to mention this in court. they weren't allowed to mention.
don't worry, we're right in there. but he was roaming free to then innocent americans like kate because of our pourous borders and because san francisco is a sanctuary city. in other words, a city run by politicians who would rather protect criminal aliens than american citizens. let me give you another example the city of chicago. what the hill is going nonchicago? there are those that say that afghanistan is safer than chicago. okay? what is
going on. you know what is wrong with chicago? weak, ineffective, politicians, democrats that don't want to force restrictions. i don't -- and by the way, chicago, for this who are going to say guns, guns -- chicago has the toughest gun laws in the united states. just in case you were thinking about -- they immediately say you have to take away -- chicago has the toughest gun laws in the united states. so we're asking democrats in congress to cease their obstruction and do the right thing, end sanctuary cities. stop the carnage, save the innocent lives. we have also begun the process of building the wall on the southern border. and we are empowering our immigration officers to do their job, and they're doing a great
job. i.c.e. and border patrol agents are working so hard, and they endorsed us for the election, i say "us" because it's us altogether, we're a group, big group, a big beautiful group. all you have to do is look around here. [cheers and applause] around.k [chanting] u.s.a., u.s.a., u.s.a., u.s.a., u.s.a. i just said, just look around and the first thing i see is that big beautiful merry christmas sign. can you believe it? remember i told you, who years ago, when we started, i said -- it was summer. i said, you know, we're going to say the merry christmas but let me tell you, the department storing are
right? they had the beautiful red walls snow,flakes all over the place. only one thing missing, the wordsmer" where christmas." they're using those word again, you notice? they're using those words again. one by one we're finding the illegal alien drug dealers, the gang members, the thieves, the criminals and the killers can preying on our children, preying on everybody, and we are throwing them the hell out of our country or we're putting them in prison. and because our borders now are strong was they that be -- and they're going to get much stronger -- we will not let these people back in. it's time for congress to adopt a pro-american immigration agenda. every member of congress should be asked where they stand on these issues. blocking funds to sanctuary cities. don't want to give sanctuary cities money. passing kate's law to put repeat
offenders behind bars for a long period of time. increasing the number of i.c.e. officers who are fantastic, and border patrol officers so we can dismantle vial criminal gangs like, as i said, ms-13 animals. ensuring that new immigrants to our country are financially self-sufficient. and will not be on welfare the day they come in. and as i said, ending chain migration. we want a system that is merit-based. they come in on merit. they don't come in a lottery system. how about theletry system. you see that -- the lottery system. you see that? that's the guy new york city. the lottery system, where
they put names in a bin. you
think these countries are legit when they do their lottery system. what they do i would say, but more than just say, they take their worst and they put them in the bin, and then when they pick the lottery, they have the real worsted in their handed. here through in, and we end up getting them. no more lottery system. we're going end that. we already started the process. we want people coming into our country who love our people, support our economy, and embrace our values. it's time to get our priorities straight. this guy's screaming wow "we
roy moore." he's right. democrats in congress want open borders, higher taxes, and government-run healthcare that doesn't work. costs a fortune. doesn't work. they're soft on crime, and they want so suffocate our economy with socialist style regulation, raise your taxes through the sky, they don't want to vote for our tax cuts because they want the -- they want tax increases. that's why we need a republican in the house. we need a republican in the senate. we need more of them. and by the way, just so i can satisfy this gentleman out there, how many people here are from the great
state of alabama? [cheering] show less text 00:56:41 unidentified speaker ] whoa. well, i have to say this. we have to be fair. so did you see what happened today? the yearbook. did you see senate there was a little mistake made. she started writing things in the yearbook. what are we going to do? gloria allred -- anytime you see her, you know something is going wrong. we cannot afford -- this country, the future of this country, cannot afford to lose a seat in the very, very close united states senate. we can't afford it, folks. we can't
afford to have a liberal democrat, who is completely controlled by nancy pelosi and chuck schumer. we can't do it. his name is jones, and he is their total puppet, and everybody knows it. he will never, ever vote for us. we need somebody in that senate seat who will vote for our make america great again agenda. which involves tough on crime, strong on borders, strong on immigration. we want great people coming into our country.
building the wall, strengthening our military. continuing our great fight for our veterans. love our veterans. we love our veterans. we want conservative judges, like judge gorsuch on the supreme court, doing a great job, too. we want people that are going to protect your gun rights, great trade deals instead of the horrible deals. and we want jobs, jobs, jobs. so get out and vote for roy moore. do it. working with republicans in congress, we have already signed 88 pieces of legislation. we get no credit. they always say, well, you know, president
trump really needs this tax bill because he hasn't passed any legislation. well, so far in ten months we have passed more during this period of time than any other president in the history of our country and the second -- let's call runner up -- is harry truman was second. so we passed all of this, including, including the long-awaited veterans accountability act. you know what that is, right? david shulkin, our second, hat done a great job. the va was a mess. so many parts of our country. hey, they left me with north korea. they left me with a mess in the middle east. they left me with
afghanistan, which is -- was a disaster. we're making a lot of progress in afghanistan, just like we have with getting isis out of iraq, getting isis out of syria. knocking the hell out of them. they left me with a mess. but we're cleaning up the mess. we're cleaning it up. and with we'll have it spinning like a top. for decade veterans have asked for a law to hold corrupt and incompetent employees at the v.a. accountable, but never happened. then we got it done. this piece of legislation for decades they've wanted. you couldn't fire anybody at the va. if they were sadists, open people, wouldn't show up to work, you can't fire anybody. now we look at them, they're no good, we say, you're fired. get
out of here. [cheers and applause] and i must tell you, i can't believe that arnold schwarzenegger bombed so badly on "the apprentice." my poor, beautiful show. it was so successful. get a big movie star and he can't pull it off. we are respecting americans heroes and rebuilding america's standing all over the world. they're respect us again. when i came into office, we inherited all of these problems, all around the globe, years of america projecting weakness, not going over the red line. if we went over the red line, you wouldn't have had russia and iran going into syria, but you know what? he said, you're never going to do it, don't ever violate the red line, they violated the red line, he did nothing. so russia went in and iran went in, but
defending the reputation of the united states. finally. [cheers and applause] to prevent iran from ever obtaining a nuclear weapon, i recently declined to certify
the disaster known as the iran nuclear deal. a total disaster. how about that deal. how about that deal. we give them $150 billion. right? we give them $150 billion. but here's the thing. we give them 1.8 billion in cash. i mean, like guest. in fact it was so much cash, that they had to go to other countries also because we didn't have enough cash in washington, dc. they loaded up planes with cash. can you believe the presidency has that kind of power? i don't want to ever try it. but can you believe that the presidency has the power to send bushel loads of cash to iran. probably for hostages. probably -- 1.8 billion, probably for hostages. so sad. we don't do that. we don't do that anymore. as part
of a campaign of maximum pressure, on the vial dictatorship of north korea, we have imposed the toughest ever sanctions passed by the united nations security council and a lot of other sanctions. i don't know that sanctions will work with him. we have to give it a shot. we'll see. who knows. i just tell you, glory good hand. that's all i can say. that's all i can say. and i've strengthened our relationships with america's allies, and asked other nato members to pay their fair share,
and now the money is pouring in. remember i went to nato a year ago, and these fake people back here, they were saying, trump's performance at nato was unacceptable. you know why that said it? because i told the people of nato, standing right behind me, while they were standing behind me, they've been delinquent, have not been
paying. i said you got pay. you got pay. you have to pay. and now they've taken in because of that -- i guess i applied, if you don't pay, we're out of there right? i took more heat from the press. they said donald trump was rude to our allies. they were rude to us when they don't pay. so we have a nation that doesn't patience then the nation gets frisky with whoever,
russia. so we have a nation doesn't pay, the nation gets aggressive, we end up in world war iii. for somebody that doesn't even pay. you think they think we're generaluses? - -- geniuses enemy last short period of time, the head of nato -- we couldn't get anybody to pay. we have taken in $11 billion extra, and going into 2020 or 2021, we will have taken in $33 billion extra, and they aren't even
doing what they should be doing, just so you understand. it's terrible. the way our country has been disrespected, but we will be disrespected no longer. okay? now, tomorrow morning you'll see from the fakeers back there, donald j. trump again disrespects nato. don't disrespect nato. think nato is wonderful. but you know what? we're paying for 80% of nato could be higher. they say 72%. so we're paying for 80% of nato. i can only tell you one thing. it helps them a hell of a lot more than it helps us, okay? they should pay. germany's paying 1%. we're paying 4%. explain that one to me. right? and germany has unsustainable cash flow. read a report. their cash flow is unsustainable. so i said to angela, i said, angela, send a lot of the cash flow our way. and she said, but donald -- because we're protecting themment we have 40,000 soldiers in germany. nobody knows that. i said, angela, let us have some. she said, donald, the german people would not be happy with that. said, you know what, the
american people aren't happy with the way we we have it now. okay? the american people are not happy. and at home we're restoring the rule of law. we're interpreting the constitution as written, defending the second amendment. you'll keep your guns. and protecting religious liberty. we're protecting religious liberty. and we're getting rid of the johnson amendment. we have stopped the government attacks on our judeo-christian values. because we know that families and churches, not government officials, know best how to
create a strong and loving community. we know that. getting rid of the johnson amendment, study that up. that's a big thing. that's a big thing. a lot of people are very, very happy about that. we know that parents, not bureaucrats, know best how to raise their children and to nurture their children. and above all else, we know this , america doesn't worship government, we worship god. [cheers and applause] [cheers and applause] all of us here tonight are united by the same values. we love our country. and we are proud of our history. we are so proud of this country. we honor our heritage, and we treasure our freedom. we support our incredible men and women of
law enforcement. we believe the united states military is the greatest force for justice in the history of the world, and we are going to take care of it, and we are going to properly fund it and we are going to have the finest weapons because when we do all of that, we are much, much safer. and far less likely to have to use. the. it's amazing how that works. we believe that every american should stand for the national anthem. [cheers and applause] [chanting usa]
and we proudly pledge allegiance to one nation, under god. our rights come from our creator, and no earthly force can ever take those rights away, and they never will. that is why my administration is taking power back from global bureaucrats and returning that power back to the american people, and you see it all the time. you see it economically, you see it at the church, you see it in every different way. we don't sing a global anthem. our troops don't wear a foreign uniform. and we will never
surrender our rights to international tribunals. we won't do that. we proudly sing the star spangle panner. our brave troops fight and die nored, white and blue, and we protect and preserve the american constitution that we cherish. i've said it so often, my job is not to be president of the world. my job is to be president of the united states of america. yet there are powerful forces in washington, trying to sabotage our movement. these are bad people. these are very, very bad and evil people. they know who they are. these are the people who made their money, their names, their careers, their power, off the
corrupt and broken system, and they liked it the other way. so they will do anything at any time and they'll never stop, but you know what? we're stopping them. you're seeing that right now. you're seeing that right now, we're stopping them. it's corrupt, it's rigged, and we're stopping them. they will lie and leak and smear because they don't want to accept the results of an election where we won by a landslide. do you remember there
poll came out -- they have to apologize for that one. another one came out that was threw the roof but wasn't on cnn, but i tell you, look, we need honesty. we need some love in the country. i'd thereof bring both sides together if that's possible. there's a lot of hatred out there. but i would love to be able to bring both sides together. but. this, i the same failed voices in washington who opposed our movement, right from the beginning, are the same people who have undermined the
credibility of our government institutions. they're the same ones who gave us one terrible trade deal after another, and one foreign policy blunder and disaster after another, with no accountability and no apology. the washington insiders who oppose our movement are the same people who sacrificed our sovereignty, our wealth, our borders look at our country. we owe $20 trillion. think of it. we have spent as of two months ago almost $7 trillion in the middle east, and you know what we have? we have nothing. it's worse than it was 17 years ago when they started. these are the people that fight us. and if i want to fix up the roads in this country, they say, oh, well, we don't want to spend money for that. it's a tiny fraction. we could have -- with that $7 trillion -- not billion -- $7 trillion, we could have rebuilt our country three times over. they've had their chance at running this country, and they
failed. so i think i speak for everyone here tonight, and i appreciate you being here, especially in numbers where you can't even get into the corners. when i proudly say, you know the beautiful thing i tell some of my friends back stage. the amazing thing about this and all the people that couldn't get in. when an election is over, they tell me, what die know? i wasn't -- i've been politician for a little more than two years, i'm doing a go job, i guess, i'm president. but it's sort of incredible. you look at everybody, you see everybody, you see the love in the room, and you see what is going on with everything, and you say to yourself, this is truly a country that respects. they say
that when you don't have an election is over. there's no competition, there's no nothing, although we always have the deep seats inside, but it's over. they say you can't draw a crowd. in other words, when an election ends you can't draw a fly. they say, look at this place. look at this place. ry until never forget on then trail would would have 25,000. we went to mobile, alabama, we had 49,000 people. we went to michigan, the night of the election. i got there, started speaking at 12:30 in the evening. it was already election day. we had 32,000 people there. michigan hadn't been won in many, many years bray republican. hillary clinton went there in an emergency because
she was told that day that she was doing badly in michigan. she went there, she had a crowd of like 600 people. i had 32,000 people. at 1:00 in the morning. i said why are we not going to win? and we won. we went to wisconsin. hasn't been won in many, many years. you remember that? we went to wisconsin. hadn't been won in many, many years. she decided not to go. thank you very much, hillary. i guess the russians advised her not to go. but she decided not to go. and her husband supposedly said, you better go to wisconsin. you better go to michigan. don't like what i'm seeing. was in michigan, and i was driving down the street, and they have a trump-pence sign of a lawn to the arena. you better go there. and she said, no, no,
my buntch of dummies. i don't get credit for one thing. always bothered me. spent a tiny fraction of what she spent and we won. in the old days, if you spend less and you win, that's good thing. over here you don't get any credit for it. we spent 25 or 30%. she was at what number 2.2 billion, i understand. 2.2 billion. you think those consultants made couple of bucks on that election? didn't she spend 12.4 million on a dossier that was total phony? 12.4 million? boy. so, we spent a tiny fraction -- think of it, a tiny fraction of the money and we won. but we won because of people like you. because of people like you. and i'll tell you what. if the democrats had won that election, instead of being up 39 points in your 401(k)s. you be down 50%
from election day. i'm telling you. because it was ready to go down the tubes. i will tell you that. thank you, man. so we don't need the advice from the washington swamp. we need to drain the swamp and wore going to do it and we are doing it. that's why i don't really care about all the bitter attacks, all the phony stuff going on. big media, special interests, phonies all, they're not here to protect you. they are only here to preserve and to protect themselves, and you're finding that out. i had a great life before i did this. think of where i'd be right now if i didn't do this. i'd be very happy, believe me. bit i wanted to do it and i wanted to give back, and i saw what was happening, and i i've always been good at doing the money thing. i saw what was happening to our country, and it wasn't good. it wasn't good. i took
this job on behalf of the forgotten men and women of our country, but guess what? they are forgotten no more. people came out of areas -- they didn't think you existed. you know that, right? remember the word "deplorable"? how brilliant was that. i was watching her with that speech. she was read allege teleprompter, yet. and she said, deplorables. and i i said, huh. that's not nice. she's talking bat lot of people, little did i know i was right. that thing blew up. that is one of the reasons she lost and now we're all proud deplorables. we're proud deplorables. very proud. your voice will never, ever be ignored again. they're all going to be coming after you for every election from now on in this country. you will never be ignored again. your dreams are
my dreams. your hopes are my hopes. and your future is what i'm fighting for, each and every day. we're just getting started. we're on the verge of passing that wonderful beautiful tax cut. the biggest in the history of our country. it doubles the amount of income tax at the rate of zero. it lowers tax rates. it expands the child tax credit, so broadly. it provides relief from the estate tax, also known as the death tax. it cuts small business taxes. it reduces the corporate rate -- very importantly -- from 35%, which is the highest in the industrialized world, all the way down to 20%. you're going to have new companies coming in. you're going to have jobs, jobs,
jobs, and brings corporate money from overseas, back where it belongs, and we're talking about possibly in excess of $4 trillion. that we can finally bring back. the typical family of four earning $75,000 will see an income tax cut of up to $2,000, cutting their tax bill in half. people don't know it and they don't want to report it. these people don't want to report it. our business tax cut is expected to raise annual income for the typical household by more than $4,000. they don't want to tell you that. they don't want to tell you that. fake news. our plan means more companies will move to america, stay in america, and hire in
america. we want every american to know that the dignity of work, the pride of a paycheck, and the satisfaction of a job well done. the democrats in washington want to grow our welfare rolls that you're going to pay for. they want to grow all sorts of things you don't want to even think about. i want to grow our employment roll with dignity,jobs where people love wake up in the morning and going to work and that's happening. so we're going lift our people from welfare to work, from dependence to independence and from forth prosperity. we will restore hope
to our struggling rural communities and to our inner cities where we're making progress. we're making progress. we will build new roads and bridges and tunnels and highways all throughout our land, factories will come roaring back to life. new works of iron and steel will be forged from fire and from sparks and from our country, and they will be made with american muscle, american hands and, most importantly, american heart. and these creations will be branded with a very simple but very beautiful phrase, made in the u.s.a. we
we are black or brown or white, you've heard it before, we all bleed the same red blood. we all salute the same great american flag. and we are all made by the same almighty god. we are the nation that dug out the panama canal, won two world wars, put a man on the moon and brought communism to it knees. as long as we have the courage of our convictions, and the strength to see them through, then there is no goal beyond our reach. as long as we are true to our values, loyal to our citizens, and faithful to our god, then we will not fail. this is your land. this is your home. and it's your voice that matters the most. so speak up, be heard, and fight, fight, fight, for the change you have been waiting for your entire life, for the change that you already see happening.
our revolution didn't end on november 8th. that was just the beginning. the greatest adventure still lies ahead. never give in, never give up, never back down, and never, ever stop dreaming. we will make america wealthy again. [cheers and applause] we will make america safe again. [cheers and applause] and put it all together and what do we have? we will make america great again. thank you, god bless you. god bless america. thank you everybody. [applause]
