[cheering] pres. trump: they couldn't get in. many thousands. they are all over. the parking lot, they're all over. it would be great if the cameras could take a shot of the arena. [cheering] pres. trump: usually, they don't do it. i usually go home and my wife will say, how was the crowd? honestly, when you have many thousands of people like we have threet, i was on an event
8:09 pm
weeks ago, where a person from the new york times said there was only 1000 people. and the people, the many thousands that were there protested. i did not even have to do it. they wrote, a slight correction. they were off by many thousands of people. fake news, i'm telling you. so fake.

[booing] we need more republicans are we have to get out there in the military. we have to get out there. got to get more republicans. [cheering] a vote for democrat for congress is really a vote for nancy pelosi, and her radical agenda. [booing] democrats want to raise your taxes, increase your regulations, shut down american american health care which has been a disaster with obamacare, and ship away american jobs. that is what they will do if anything bad happens to this
8:12 pm
country. it will be a disaster for all of you. but we are not going to let it happen. we worked too hard to get here.

[cheering] pres. trump: democrats don't care about the impact of uncontrolled migration on your communities, your schools, your hospitals, your jobs, or your safety. democrats put illegal immigrants before they put american citizens. what the hell is going on? [booing] pres. trump: illegal immigration costs our country hundreds of billions of dollars. imagine if we could spend that money to help bring opportunity to our intercity and our rural communities and our roads,
8:14 pm
highways, our schools. [cheering] >> build that wall! build that wall! build that wall! build that wall! wall!that pres. trump: so we have already started the wall. pres. trump:we have $1.6 million. the wall has been started. san diego and lots of different places, and we go. but boy, it is tough. they want to do anything they can to abstract and to make sure it does not happen. but it is happening. it is happening. we have a single protester there. there we go. goodbye, darling. goodbye, darling.

8:16 pm
back into our country. we need people to help. but we want them to come in through the merit system. not a system where we get ms 13 and everybody else that the other countries d't nt. [cheering] democratsp: and the open border policies have also allowed ms 13 to break into our country, and drugs to pour into our streets. and we are stopping it. [booing] pres. trump: we have taken out of our country, and actually, can you believe i have to say this? we have liberated towns. like, like it was captured by a foreign country. we have liberated towns out in long island. ms 13, gangs, we have taken them out of our country by the thousands. [cheering]
8:17 pm
pres. trump: these countries that send them back, we are putting in legislation, we are not giving them any more aid. when they send people up, remember the original speech? my original speech. they a sending -- you remember those words? everyone said, how terrible. let me tell you, they are sending, and they are not sending their finest, that i can tell you. we are sending them the hell back. -- we give doing hundreds of millions of dollars of aid to countries. we have a horrible deal as an example with nafta and mexico. horrible deal. billion onver $100 that horrible trade deal. where factories were emptied. so many bad things have happened. we are going to make it a part tonafta because you have markup thousands of miles coming through mexico.
8:18 pm

8:19 pm
pres. trump: we are -- is that a man or a woman because he needs a haircut more than i do. couldn't tell. couldn't tell. i couldn't tell. he needs a haircut. aboute media never talks of illegaln victims immigration. i know them well. i know so many of them. i campaigned with them. what has happened to their children, what does happen to their husbands, what has happened to their wives. the media does not talk about the american families permanently separated from their loved ones because democrat policies released violent criminals into our communities. we need safety.
8:20 pm
we need to be. they don't bring cameras to interview the angel moms whose children were killed by criminal aliens who should have never been here in the first place. not even close. they don't want to talk to the angel mom. but as your president, i will always fight to protect american families. [cheering] i will always fight for an immigration system that defends our borders, and takes care of our sovereignty of the nation. sacrifice the safety and security of the american people. and i will never be silent in the face of vicious smears and attacks, and in the heroic agents and offices of ice and the border patrol who save
8:21 pm
millions, just the job they do. save thousands and thousands of lives, and are so brave, and are so tough. if you want to create a humane, lawful system of immigration, then you need to retire the democrats and elect republicans to finally secure our borders. [cheering] because we need democrat votes. we have a majority of one in the senate. we need democrat votes in the senate. theeed additional votes in house. we will have the greatest borders, the greatest wall, we have already started, but it is a lot tougher than it needs to be. we need republicans to get out
8:22 pm
and put republicans in. in case you don't know, in the unfortunately,, 60 votes per we have 51 votes. we need democrats. they will do anything to abstract, anything to make it as uncomfortable as possible. a grizzly think it is good politics. i actually think it is bad politics. we will see very soon. [cheering] pres. trump: we are building it. we are building the wall. that wall is happening. under the previous administration, america's rich, natural resources, of which your state has a lot, were put under lock and key, including thousands of acres in superior national forest. you know what that is, right? tonight, i am proudly announcing
8:23 pm
that we will soon be taking the first steps to rescind the federal withdrawal in superior national forest, and restore mineral exploration for our amazing people and miners and workers and for the people of minnesota. one of the great natural reserves of the world. and we will do it carefully, and maybe, if it doesn't pass, we won't do it all. but it is going to happen, i will tell you. it is happening fast. as you already taken it, know, long way down the road. and it is going to make things better. it is going to make it from an environmental standpoint, better. as a result of our massive tax cuts, millions of americans are receiving much bigger paychecks. much bigger. [cheering] pres. trump: we have eliminated record numbers of job killing
8:24 pm
regulations. ago, itay, a few days was 500 days, so now, it is like 511. in 500 days, we have cut more regulations than any president in the history of our country am a whether it is four years, eight years, or one year. [cheering] pres. trump: in one case, 16 years. inhave cut more regulations 500 days than any president. wen our 16 year president, have opened up energy exploration in alaska. they have been trying to do that from before the days of ronald reagan. couldn't get it done. of obamaed the core care, the individual mandate is gone. so unpopular. [cheering] the individual
8:25 pm
mandate where you pay a fortune for the privilege of not paying for insurance or health care. let me tell you, we just repealed it. you don't have to pay anymore. so big. [cheering] have trump: and we would repealed and replaced obamacare, although we have got a long way to where we are doing it, we just had to do a longer route, because we had a gentleman late into the morning hours go thumbs down. that was not a good thing he did. that was not good thing for our people, our country. whether you are a democrat or republican. everybody said, oh, good, we have his vote, we have everybody's vote. we were going in for a routine repeal and replace and he went, thumbs down. not nice. that was not nice. [booing] pres. trump: we are bringing brat -- bringing back our jobs from other countries. we are bringing back our
8:26 pm
companies from other countries. chrysler is coming back. chrysler just announced they are coming back. [cheering] many trump: many, companies are coming back to our country. they know where the action is. this is where they want to be. and as far as trade is concerned, with other countries, reciprocalr and trade. we don't want stupid trade. like we had for so long. stupid trade. [cheering] pres. trump: remember the word reciprocal. remember the word reciprocal. we have been ripped off by almost every country on earth, our friends and enemies. i hate to say it, our friends do a bigger and better job than the enemies.
8:27 pm
but those days are over. those days are over. [cheering] pres. trump: even before we finish off with the trade deals and we will finish off with the trade deals, people don't realize we have the cards. because we are the piggy bank that everybody was dropping for 30 years. we are like the piggy bank, let's go get more. you look at the european union, they put up barriers so we can't sell our products. that, they sell mercedes and bmw, and the cars come in by the millions. and we hardly tax them at all. they don't take our cars. if they do, the tax is massive. they are basically saying, we are going to sell you millions of cars, by the way, you're not going to sell a sunny. not going to work that way anymore, folks. [cheering] we will not be
8:28 pm
advantage of anymore. we are a great country. we are going to be an even greater country. hopefully greater than we have ever been before. we have such [cheering] -- pres. trump: we just secured a funding700 billion in to rebuild our military, which was in very sad shape. [cheering] pres. trump: and we have approval for next year, $716 billion. we are ordering new planes, we make the best in the world to we are ordering new military equipment. and we even gave our great more years -- our great warriors a raise. [cheering] pres. trump: gave them a raise.
8:29 pm
for the veterans, we passed the largest v.a. performs in half a century. a landmark v.a. accountability lot. you know what that is? you could not fire anybody that worked in the v.a. are you were sadistic in some cases, they lazy,hey were this and that you can never fire anybody because the accountability coming you could forget it. we passed a bill that they have been trying to pass for almost 40 years. it is called v.a. accountability, where you bring the person into the office and you say, jim, i'm sorry to tell you, you are fired. get out of here. [cheering] pres. trump: and even more working from ever did or would be saying this so soon, because
8:30 pm
i would campaign on the spirit i used to go out during the campaigns and you know, because i was in minnesota a lot, but obviously one more trip. that won't happen again. [cheering] pres. trump: but one that is really important to me. i wonder what doctors don't take care of our great that's. -- our great vets. we just passed veterans choice administration. it gives them the care they deserve and the care they earned. so our betterments were waiting online or nine days for 12 days, for three weeks someone online with a minor problem, they ended up having a terminal disease. now, i said it during the campaign before a new too much about it, but there is a lot of common sense in life. i said, instead of them waiting
8:31 pm
for 2, 3, or, five weeks to why don't we let them go see a doctor and pay the bill. that is what we are doing. that is veterans choice. that is veterans choice. and you know, i went to people and i thought, i think i am a genius. i thought this was like come at the greatest idea. so i went to the groups and they said we have been trying to get this passed for 30 years. i didn't know that. but, what i did know is i knew how to get it passed. and we got it. two weeks ago. and by the way, we passed another one called right to try. you know what it is? right to try to try. these are people that are terminally ill. it is sad. they travel all over the world if they have the money paired a don't, they don't know what to
8:32 pm
do. if we have drugs that haven't been approved yet but are showing tremendous promise, it didn't matter. it didn't matter how sick you were or where you were coming couldn't get it. the reason was they didn't want to do anything that was going to hurt you. you are not going to be around for five weeks. in five weeks, i kept saying why can't we do something. if people had the money, they would travel to africa, to asia, to europe trying to find a cure. it was called hope. they wanted hope. and they couldn't get it here it i said it is ridiculous. i got involved -- this is also -- like utterance choice people have tried to pass it. kevin mccarthy was a great help. so were your congressman. a great help. [applause] pres. trump: and we got right to try past and four weeks ago i
8:33 pm
signed final legislation and we are very proud of it. [cheering] pres. trump: many people are going to be saying -- many, many people are going to say -- and you think it would be easy, but it wasn't, between the insurance, health care, and i'm a cynical companies. it was incredible. but, we did that. now we are bringing down the prices of ascription drugs. way down. this incredible progress together with your help and the help of millions and millions of people that -- some polls got it right, but not all polls got it right. they showed up. the beginning of that night, people were saying this could be a big problem for the democrats. they were not liking what a were seeing. they were seeing too many of those hat and too many people with -- that was an amazing
8:34 pm
evening. because that is a movement the likeswhich this country has never seen before. this country has never seen. you know, we talk about the forgotten men and women, they are the smartest people, they work the hardest, they pay taxes, they do all of the things. yet, they were the forgotten people. believe me, our people are the smartest and hardest working. smarter than anybody and the hardest working. [cheering] a little thing i was talking about today -- do you ever notice they always call the other side the elite? the elite. why are they elite? i have a much better apartment and they do. [cheering] pres. trump: i'm smarter than they are. i am richer than they are. i became president and they didn't.
8:35 pm
[cheering] and i ammp: representing the greatest, smartest, most loyal, best people on earth -- the deplorables. remember that? the deplorables. [cheering] pres. trump: oh. >> usa usa usa pres. trump: i was watching when crooked hillary made -- and by the way -- have you been watching what has been going on with the inspector general's report? what a scam this whole thing is? how guilty is she? [booing]
8:36 pm
pres. trump: with peter strock and his lover, lisa page. [booing] think their i don't wife and husband are too happy about that. what do you think? i don't think so. but, have you been seeing this whole scam? do you believe what you are seeing? no matter how many crimes she's admitted, -- were numerous, they wanted her to be innocent. with me, nothing. no collusion, no nothing. .hey just did to take all of us they wanted to put us in trouble. it is not working too well. i will tell you. [cheering] pres. trump: called a phony witchhunt.
8:37 pm
but, you look at the corruption. did you ever see anything like it? today, that is why you are building up immigration so you can't see what is going on in congress. they are building up immigration because they don't want to show what is happening in congress where this whole scam has been revealed that they want to stay on immigration where obama had bigger problems than anybody. where bush had problems. her other presidents -- they want to stay on immigration because i don't want to go into the halls of congress which is totally revealed the russian scam that is going on. [cheering] pres. trump: what a group. what a group. something, we want to get along with russia. russia is looking out and saying, man i wish she one between our military, our oil. she wanted to have windmills. we want to compete -- all the
8:38 pm
things we have done. all the things we've done, including sanctions. so many things. they are looking back and saying , you know, i wish crooked hillary had won that election. it would have been a lot that are for russia. we what we want to do is want to elect more republicans so that we can deliver on all of the things i'm talking about and i'll be honest with you -- we are going to deliver anyway. [cheering] pres. trump: we are going to lift millions of americans from welfare to work, from dependence to independence and from poverty to prosperity. we are going to lift them. [cheering] one of the greatest things about all the jobs we have created is that people now don't get in one job and they
8:39 pm
