criminals than they are in taking care of you. bredesen donated a lot of money to the campaign's of barack obama and hillary clinton. [crowd booing]
pres. trump: crooked hillary. "]rowd chanting "lock her up pres. trump: how do you like the facts? they had people infiltrating our campaign. can you imagine? can you imagine? can you imagine people
infiltrating our campaign? is there anybody in this big, thatiful arena right now is infiltrating our campaign? would you please raise your hand? that would take courage. no, look. take a look at what is going on. never in the history of our country has something taken
place like took place during this election. fan offairness, i'm no crazy bernie sanders. i'm no fan. but i want to tell you, he got screwed. he did. he did. crazy bernie. he still does not know what happened. no, he does not know. i saw him on television -- i don't know what happened. me, too. i thought he was winning. but it helped me because we were very, very cautious. and, we work hard. many speeches a day. that last month of campaigning. and some of the polls got it right but i tell you what. anotherike
this, one to to another. she would go there. the only way she filled up the arena was to get jay-z.
and, his language was so filthy that it made me like the most clean-cut human being on earth. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: he would stand up there before those crowds -- and, by the way, without any musical instruments i had much bigger crowds the end he was drawing. but he
would stand up before the crowds and he would use the "f" word. and hillary would sit act -- i'm in trouble. i'm in trouble. these, don't have him use that kind of language anymore. then he would finish and everybody would leave and she would be standing up and making a speech to about 100 people. but, phil supported her.
and he supported her ideas. we need a wall, we are going to get a wall, we have already started doing it. [cheers and applause] wall"]chanting "buildout pres. trump: so,
we have already started. lastt 1.6 billion in the approval. but remember this, we had to take care of our military. ok? we have to. ourt $700 billion for military and next year i got $716 billion and our enemies look at us much different now
they can they looked at us -- then they looked at us two years ago. [crowd chanting "usa"] pres. trump: we also, by the way, very important to all of is
we got $6 billion, that be, billion. but we got $6 billion for opioid and getting rid of that scorch our country. the numbers are way down. we are getting the word out. bad, bad stuff. you goo the hospital, -- to the hospital, break your arm, you go out and your drug addict. it's bad. but we got $6 billion to help us
with opioid. borders, want strong and again, we have started that
wall. we have $1.6 billion for the wall. we started the wall. in san diego, they came to us. they wanted the wall in california. you heard this story. i said, don't give it to them. we lose a lot of energy. they wanted it so badly. they got tired of immigrants walking across the front lawn. is that terrible that they got tired? why should they not have people walking through their living room? why? so they wanted the wall. so i said, no. let's wait. the nascent, go ahead and build it, we got a good price. so we started to build a but then i had second thoughts because the governor of the sanctuary, who loves , so he and other things
did not want a wall. but they were putting so much precious lady said to do it. then, in the middle of doing it, it is beautiful in vague, no one is crossing it very easily. it is not one of those you can just sneak to the top, this is a real wall. so what happened was in the middle i had second thoughts. do you ever have second thoughts? i thought, let's stop building the wall because we have more pressure to put on this crazy. taxes are high, crime is high. other than that, he is doing a fantastic job, ok? in california, i have property in california. i don't care about it anymore. there's only one thing that matters, getting it done properly. who cares if you property? big deal. stop building's
the wall. how much its see costs. i think half of this room is contractors. i can smell a contractor, leave it or not. we have a lot of contractors in this room. so i said, find out how much it would cost to stop. one of the generals said, sir, it would not cost anything to stop it. i said, really? said, $7 million. we will not stop. so we're building the wall, we started the wall, we need about 700 miles of wall. it is 2000 miles. we need seven hundred miles of wall. with a lot of natural barriers better than any wall you could build. but we are building up. remember i used to say, who is going to pay for the wall, right? finallyys all think, we have it.
because, mexico said it would not pay for the wall. what does that mean? what does that mean? we are renegotiating nafta. remember what i said. we are having -- you remember i bad deale have such a
with mexico. we of such a bad deal with canada. $100se with mexico over billion per year with this crazy nafta deal. think of it. it is impossible. year.e $100 billion a that does not include the billions of dollars of drugs that flow into our country. that is not included. billionobably 100 dollars, probably more. it is destroying our youth. we're going to stop it. we have been stopping it. we need a border wall.
we need it. we have got to have a change in our laws. our laws of the worst laws of any country of anywhere in the world. catch and release. did you ever hear? their name,ou take and release. wonderful. and they are supposed to show up in court. there is only one problem. they never show up. so we are having a real problem. the democrats want to use it as a campaign issue. i keep saying i hope they do. the democrats are lousy politicians. they are lousy on policy. allowingto think that open borders -- which we don't allow any way -- but they make it very if a call, but them allowing open borders is a good issue for them, not for us. the one thing they do is stick together. 48, 49.ways like nobody leaves in the senate.
they sit together. they always the like 100%, ok? so we need more republicans. we're going to get them. we're going to get the wall done anyway. mexico -- i don't want to cause a problem. i don't. end,in the and, in the mexico is going to
pay for the wall. i'm just telling you. i'm just telling you, all right? i don't want to cause any problems but in the end, mexico is paying for the wall. they make all of this money and they do absolutely nothing to stop people from going through mexico from honduras and all these other countries. the caravan, all of this stuff. they do nothing to help us. nothing. they are going to pay for the wall and they are going to enjoy it. ok? they are going to enjoy it. andou want strong borders
if you want not only that -- we have to do something with the lottery. we
have to do something with chain migration. york, oh guy in new one year ago, he ran over and killed eight people, right? eight people. nobody ever talks about the people who work injured. they always say a people died, well, about 12 or just horrible injured. they lose an arm, they lose a leg, these are people running along the side of the hudson river. people get run over by a mania. he runs over as many as he can. eight people killed, many people badly injured. missing a leg, missing an arm. can you imagine? these are all people different
from me in the sense that they want to run. i don't want to run. they work hard, they look good. then they come home and because of this maniac and others like him -- look at what is going on all over
the the world. look at what is happening to your. .- to europe so the government take this man, and he got here, and he's got 22 people who came it. his mother, his father, his uncle, his sister -- he has 22 people who came in for this one guy. that is called chain migration. 22 people. then of course, you have the wonderful lottery system that was started by chuck schumer sometimes referred to as "crying chuck schumer." i've known him for so many
years. i knew him in new york so long. chuck. remember, he was crying. he was so sad. he got up and he was crying. he was working those tears. he was crying so hard that it was actually not tears, it was sweat. check wanted to have a lottery system. a lottery system. you pick people. so let me ask you. these countries sending people in in, do you think they are sending us their finest? so we get the lottery. so they put in names and we picked names and they come in. then we wonder why we have problems. we are not going to be a stupid country anymore. weaves docked at. we are not going to be. and, you can say what you want but i think border security and security is a great issue for
the republican party. it is not a bad issue. if you want the strong voters. if you want crime to stop. and by the way, as a country we have way down. take a look at a place like chicago. what the hell is that mayor doing? what is he doing? but crime is down in the country. but we need republicans and we need to get out and vote. if you want your communities to be safe, if you want your schools to be safe, if you want your country to be safe, then you must go out and get the democrats the hell out of office. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: and, we're going to
defend our borders and we are going to fight hard on crime. we are not going to let what has longned over the last period of time. so well,my is doing more people are trying to get inside
makes it even tougher. but the second thing is we're going to protect your second amendment. you will not have a second amendment if the democrats take over. you won't have a second amendment. you won't have a second amendment. week i visited a place where i essentially grew up right next door to discuss the .enace of ms-13 this vicious gang has transformed once-peaceful beautiful communities that i know so well. i know them all -- into
fields.ained killing savagely raping, killing, mutilating their victims. and they don't even want to do with the gun. they took about 10 control. they want to do it with knives. they want to cut people up into little pieces because it is more painful. then i have to listen to nancy pelosi and these people saying, we have to respect them. they are human beings. they are not human beings. this is why we call the bloodthirsty ms-13 gang members exactly the name i used last week. what was the name? crowd: animals! president trump: animals. advantage of loopholes to infiltrate our country. we are bringing them out by the thousands but they come in. we are bringing them out by the
thousands. in long island, we have guys in word control and guys in ice and fantastic women, brave, strong. we have the people in ice that go around and grab ms-13 and the beauty as they are much tougher than these gang members and they see these people and they say, man. and they throw them into the paddy wagons. this is long island where i grew up. so many and long island. it is like they have been liberated. like from a war. it is like the enemy has been taken out and the people are dancing and waving and looking out their windows and waving to the ice people. those people are incredible, brave, tough people. they have been liberated. terrible. me 30 would have told years ago, 20 years ago, that could happen to long island i that've said, no way! but
is what happened. think of it. it is like this town has been liberated. think of it. washington them across voted against legislation -- washington legislate -- washington voted against legislation, voted against case law, voted for sanctuary
cities. voted in favor of catch and release. ok? so, democrats have opposed every common sense measure necessary to stop this surrender this scourge of crime, to dismantle ms-13, and to stop illegal immigration. that is why we have to go in november. you have to work with marsha. we have to get the bugs. we need the votes. they stick together.
whatever-that-hell, his have democrats come out to me saying "i love you president, love the job, i'm with you, resident," some of these states are one by 44 points. they are afraid of fight go there. they are saying, democrats running for offices, many of them are saying great things about me. and fact, i think there republicans. they are not going to vote for us no matter what i say. the only thing that matters is, will they raise their hand? they will never raise their hand. because i told you, they are bad at everything but they are good at sticking together. they are good at sticking -- i give them respect for that. they are good at sticking together. the only thing they're good at. we support the rule of law and we support the heroes of law
enforcement. .hank you and, we defend our constitution. -- wee have confirmed have got now, through confirmation -- a record number of judges who will interpret the constitution as written. as written. history ande in our we have respect for our great american flag. put our hands on our hearts for the pledge of allegiance. put our hands on our hearts. and, we always proudly stand for our national anthem. thank you. what's that all about?
these shared values, we have already accomplished more than anyone ever dreamed possible. a year and a half. that is all
there is. we have not let you down. i will never let you down. we passed the largest tax cut and reform in american history. larger than ronald reagan's many years ago. in juneau, when i got involved i said -- you have to help me with this because why have you never been able to pass tax cuts? you might've heard the story. they said to me, sir, i don't know, we just can't pass them. i said, can i see a few of these bills over the years. i looked at one from tenures ago, 20 years ago, 30 years ago. it does not say tax cut.
it says, the tax reform act of 1994. tax reform! it says things. what does reform mean? it means you might pay more taxes. it did not say cut. so i spoke with leticia and to have been doing a lot longer than me. but we have common sense. i said, wait a minute when you pass the tax reform act of whatever year, nobody knows it is tax-cut. oak on i think they do. great, let's give everybody an education. let's give 350 my people and education. you have to call it the tax cut act. the tax cut at! act!e tax cut they want to pass it. kevin brady, a lot of good
people. good people. knowledgeable. i being serious about it. i wanted it to be called the tax cut act.ut for cuts. we all agreed that was a little bit hokey. but we called it the tax cut act, ok? and it was, i don't say easy, don't say easy, but then of course repeal and replace
obamacare. we will wait. we had it done, folks. it was done and then early in the morning somebody turned their hand in the wrong direction. cost our country a lot. that was a very, very bold -- that was very, very terrible thing to happen that night. a terrible thing. it cost our country one trillion dollars.
it would of given us a good health care plan. lot.cost us a nobody knew that was going to happen because we had it done. repeal and replace! and the person that voted that way only talked repeal and replace. she campaigned on it! so i tell you this, forget that. we are coming up with great health care. our secretary of labor is coming out with a plan in two weeks. association plan. it is going to be great. our secretary of health, alex a caustic, do you know him? acosta, do you know
him? 's.ave two alex , what did we get?
the individual mandate is out the window. that was the most unpopular part of obamacare. so unconstitutional. that was where you had the privilege of
paying a lot of money so you don't have to pay for health care because you're not going to get it, ok? so you pay not to have to pay for health care. in other words, you're not going to get anything. think of it. you pay for the privilege. every time i think of this -- you pay for the privilege of not getting how there. that was a great one. that was an obama special. who would take of that? who would think of it? so we got rid of the individual mandate. alaska got and more and in the tax cut plan. friend of mine called and said, you know, it is amazing.
anwar. this massive find. i wasn't pushing it too hard, to be honest with you. he called up and said, is it true you are trying to get anwar and you might edit? it is the biggest, phenomenal. resident -- bush. resident, --ry he said every president, bush. bush. death, blood, money. he said, people of been trying to get that approved since ronald reagan. i said, he tried?
get anwar've got to approved. i never knew it was such a big deal. it is a big deal. people
in alaska are moving on it right now. they are moving it along. last year we passed landmark legislation to give choice to our great veterans. it is going to be incredible. we are going for choice. we have not finished the process shut but it is happening. choice. it is happening. before he knew too much about the v.a. i said we're going to take care of it. these are great people. in many cases, and pretty great -- bad shape. they would have to wait for 16 days, a week, sometimes months. they would go with something and could be easily cured
three months later they haven't seen a doctor and are terminally ill. ok? isaac, we have to help. you know what makes sense to me? doctorm go to a private and let the government pay. right? -- [cheersnd applies and applause] to therump: i went expert and they said, we have been trying to do that for years. we have been trying but we cannot get it passed. we are close to getting it fully pass. choice! choice! we also did something else for the v.a., our veterans. accountability act. to know what that is? do you know what that is? we all love unions and civil
service. can again. for years and decades they've tried to get accountability so people would treat our vets badly. you have people who would -- it would be terrible. they would be terrible to our vets. you could not hire them. they would steal, rob, you could not fire them. the v.a.t was called accountability act. nobody thought i could get it through. nobody. because of the unions. and because of civil service, which is very powerful. we got it through. i signed it couple of months ago. right? now, when somebody steals or when somebody who is a sicko hurts our great veterans, we
look them in the eye and we say -- jim, you are fired. get out? v.a. accountability act. i'm proud of that. nobody talks about it. by the way, these guys don't talk about it. they never talk about it. they never talk about it. they don't even talk about it. something good happens, they don't want to talk. it is mostly good, i will tell you. they don't want to talk about it. this month is just like i promised during the campaign. the united states officially opened the american embassy in jerusalem. applause]d
president trump: good. that's good. you know, a quick story. i really understand now why it was never approved. everybody that ran for office, everyone in both parties said, we are going to open the embassy in jerusalem. we are going to recognize jerusalem as the capital. we are opening -- this was their campaign -- the politicians -- this was their campaign. over and over. many, many presidents. goes, they are fired. i guess they are fired. they are not here. but not one didn't. that was terrible. you see them campaigning. embassying to open the in jerusalem. over and over. now it is time. one of them went. they never did it, right?
they never did it. now i know why. because two weeks out when people sort of started to think we're going to open the embassy, i was called by every leader in the world. don't do it, don't do it, we don't want it, don't do it. and, i understood. the pressure not to open it was tremendous. and we didn't. we did the right thing. we did the right thing. [cheers and applause] and --rump: after -- i will tell you a little business story. a fast one. but after was proved, i told the john voelker is here somewhere. where is john? nasty and so is so
tough that i have to hold him back, ok? pretty great. he's doing a great job. you better get some rest because we have some pretty good negotiations coming up. he is here with his daughter who lives, by the way, and tennessee. i'm so happy. so i said, i want to build up. we got it approved. a big deal. i want to build it. so, i get the executive order. this big, beautiful piece of paper. speech.k, from my i haven't used it yet. so beautiful. leather. the most expensive leather money can buy. it probably cost $2000. look at the seal. remind me to take it when i leave, it is so beautiful. orderhave this executive and i'm getting ready to sign up. i signed "donald." i say, what is this?
, believe me they are much better fighters at war than the art negotiators. he says, sir this is the new embassy. the cost will be $1 billion. i said, wait a minute, what? he said, $1 billion. i said, how can a one-story building cost $1 billion. you said, we estimate the cost to be $1 billion. we're going out to buy land. in the meantime, we will not open for 30 years, you know they .ll suck so i called my representative, david friedman, right? israel from the united states. our ambassador. i said, david i have a problem. i cannot spend $1 billion to build and embassy. i can't. not that the country can't. i just mentally can't do it. it is like a one-story building.
they want to go over pay for a piece of land and a bad location like they did in london before i got there. i said, david i cannot do it. david is a great lawyer, great businessman, one of the best lawyers. because they back and says, sir ."d i say "what forould build the embassy $100,000. i said, what are you talking about, $150,000? ofsays, we at the best piece land william. we have a building on that piece of land. at a setback many acres. it is in the best location and what i want to do, sir, is take the corner of that they, beautiful building and carve it up. 100an build and embassy for
$50,000. you know what i told him? i got a little but extravagant will stop i said david, make it $400,000, ok? so we open up. and, sir, we can have the embassy built in about three months as opposed to 20 years. here's the deal. own,llion, land we don't it will take forever to get it open. it will never open. it in addition to people trying to stop you, that's $1 billion. as opposed to a better location for hundred thousand dollars. i said, spend more, please. sometimes something can cost so little it is ridiculous, right? so we open it up. it is you. the finest stones, the finest marble, the best location. it is open. it open for months after we started building it. we had the dedication ceremony.
that is government. by the way, i could tell you 100 stories like that. the stories are crazy. so instead of spending $1 million and not having it for 30 years, we spent $400,000 and it opened up in a couple months. is that a good story? i think it is probably better. i think the big differences it is probably better. so that's the story. but in order to ensure the iranian regime never obtains nuclear weapons. the united states from the horrible one-sided iran nuclear deal a couple weeks ago. instead of apologizing for america which we always do, we are finally standing up for our
