this is a really good man. his is a man who loves the people of montana, loves the people of this country. it's time to retire liberal democrat jon tester. [applause] you're going to get on your side a real montana fighter. you see it. you've been watching for the last six months. he is a tough cookie. he's a fighter, matt rosendale. jon tester says one thing when he's in montana, but i will tell you -- i'm a testament to it -- he does the exact opposite when he goes to washington. a vote for jon tester is a vote for chuck schumer, nancy pelosi -- [booing]
and the new leader of the democrat party, maxine aters. [booing] where have they gone? jon tester voted no on repealing obama care. you all remember that evening somebody came down with a thumbs down after campaigning for years he was going to repeal and replace. that's ok. for the most part, we have already done it, and we have great health care coming out, as it just came out two weeks ago, and we got rid of the individual mandate and lots of other things. sometimes, we have to do it the hard way. jon tester voted no on tax cuts for montana families. he voted no on cutting the
estate tax or the death tax for your farms, your farmers. think of that one. you got it anyway because we got it passed. for the most part, you will have no estate tax or death tax. you can leave your farm, leave your small business to her -- your children, or whoever you want to leave them. don't always leave them to the children. if the children aren't good children, don't leave them. but you have no tax to pay. pretty good, right? nobody thought that was going to happen. tester voted against it. jon tester voted no on legislation to stop late-term bortion. [booing] you wouldn't think it would play very well out here.
ow did he get elected? all right. you can right your wrong in november. ok? ou can right your wrong. jon tester voted know on kate's law. kate steinle was gunned down by a five-time deported illegal immigrant. you deserve a senator who doesn't talk like he's from montana. you deserve a senator who actually votes like he is from montana. [applause] tester even voted know on extreme vetting for refugees. do you believe this one? what is going on with that? the democrats want open borders,
which means lots of crime. we want no crime. we are going to protect ice. we protect ice. they protect us, and we protect them. you saw that clown yesterday on the statue of liberty or did you see the guys who went up there? did you see that clown up on the statue of liberty? did you see those guys? the bravery of doing that? we protect ice and our border patrol and law enforcement and our fire department. we protect our people. jon tester opposed our travel ban to keep america safe, which,
by the way, i'm proud to report, the supreme court of the united states just upheld the trump ravel ban. they gave us the authority to rotect our nation. keep our nation safe. as you know, there's now a vacancy on the supreme court. if you tune in monday at 9:00, i think you are going to be extremely happy. they are all great. they are all great. i want to thank justice kennedy for his lifetime of truly distinguished service and e had confidence the me.
he left and he said you're going to pick somebody great. a great gentleman. jon tester voted against neil gorsuch, the incredible justice who supports fully our constitution. that's a hard one to vote against, isn't it? tester opposed many of our amazing judges, and yet i see jon tester saying such nice things about me. he never votes with me. i'd rather have him say bad about me and vote. right? jon tester voted for liberal obama judges who tried to take away your second amendment. tried to take it away. tester doesn't share your values. jon tester showed his true colors with his shameful, dishonest attacks on a great man, a friend of mine, and
a man that i said why don't you run the v.a.? you'd be great. navy admiral ronnie jackson. a report just came out -- i should've brought it because i would've read it, but it's beautiful and long for ronnie jackson. secret service are all over the place, and they wrote a report that what he said was so false and so untrue. it never happened. they could've ruined a lesser man. dr. jackson -- should i call him admiral ordered doctor? he's a doctor. he's an admiral. his son is a top, top student at annapolis, graduating this year. incredible wife. incredible family. i feel guilty.
admiral jackson was getting ready to leave service, and he served many years admirably. he actually said i was healthy. e was the one. when the fake news said, why sn't trump getting a physical, dr. jackson and his staff, they went out and gave me a physical. it was a physical. they said i'm very healthy. the news was devastated. they were devastated. they didn't want to hear that. he's a great family man, and i aid to him, i feel guilty. i said, hey, doc. why don't you run the v.a.? you're a leader. your admired. he said, sir, i wasn't really thinking of that. i said, you'd be great.
sir, whatever you order, i will do. even if he didn't want to do it -- he said that to me. in fact, your great first lady said to me that same day, did he want to do it? i said, i don't know. when i thought about it, i don't know. he said, if you ask, i will do it, but he didn't really want to do it. i kind of feel guilty about this whole thing. what happened is, he said, sir, if you'd like me to do it, i'll do it. i put him into the world of politics. how vicious is the world. but jon tester said things about him that were horrible and eren't true. [booing] that's probably why i'm here. i won montana by so many points. i don't have to come here.
a lot of people from states where we had these crazy big over , we won by 44 points a democrat. it was crooked hillary, but still, she's a democrat. she gets special treatment under he justice department. [chanting "lock her up"] president trump: sorry, sorry. she gets special treatment under the justice department. anybody else in america -- how about that f.b.i. agent? how about that guy?
the justice department. do you think he likes me? do think he was just a little iased? man, did we catch him in the act. it's a rigged a deal. it's a rigged a deal. i used to say it. it's a rigged a deal. it's a disgrace. i am going to tell nato, you've got to start paying your bills. the united states is not going to pay for everything. we are paying 70% to 90% to protect europe. he united states is not going that's fine. of course they kill us on trade. they kill us on other things. they make it impossible to do business in europe, and yet they come in and sell their mercedes and bmw's to us. we have $151 billion in trade deficits with the eu, and on top
of that, they kill us with nato. we pay for percent of a huge gdp, which became a lot bigger since i became your president. germany, which is the biggest country of the eu, european union, germany pays 1%. i said, you know, angela, i can't guarantee it, but we're protecting you, and it means a lot more to you than protecting us. i don't know how much
protection we get by protecting you. then they go out and make a gas deal, oil and gas, from russia, where they pay billions and billions of dollars to russia. they want to protect against russia, and yet they pay billions of dollars to russia, and we are the schmucks paying for the whole thing. i have to say this. since i can, which was a year and a half, almost $33 billion more is projected to be paid by those nato nations, but it's not enough. do they ever tell you that? no. i will tell you, the secretary-general's trump's biggest fan. he says, those nato nations are going like this. less money, less money. when you started talking, it went like a rocket ship. anytime i suggest anything -- we've got $33 billion -- it's going to be a lot more money than that. let's see, he's angry at nato. i guess he loves russia. i love russia. i will say this. i am meeting with president putin next week and getting
along -- let me tell you, getting along with russia and getting along with china and getting along with other countries is a good thing. it's not a bad thing. it's a good thing. i would say for stupid people or political people -- they aren't stupid at all they are good at is obstructing or resisting -- there thing is resist, but every time it comes up -- i'm going to political people -- they aren't have to ask them this question. how bad has it been since trump team in. -- came in? we just increased our military spending. we are at $700 billion. ways become a nation exporting energy for the first time.
one if you look at the money nato is getting now, they are probably saying in russia, if we did like this guy, we made a big mistake. we'd rather have crooked hillary clinton. getting along is really a nice thing. we have the greatest military. hopefully, we will never have to use it. the only way you are never going to have to use it is if it's so powerful, so strong that nobody wants to play games, and that is what we are doing.
then of course, we have north korea. during the obama administration, it seemed like a missile a leak. a lot of nuclear testing. they thought there was an earthquake the size of something they had never tested before. they said, what we check? it was a nuclear weapon. we had very tough rhetoric. wouldn't you say it was tough? remember, they said, he's too tough. he's going to cause war. too tough. he's too nice. i got along very well with chairman kim. that's a good that i got along well. he's too nice. i got along very well with chairman kim. we got our prisoners back. i didn't pay $1.8 billion in
cash, by the way. we didn't pay $1.8 billion. we paid slightly less. we paid nothing. cash, by the way. we didn't pay $1.8 billion. we paid slightly less. we paid nothing. yet it was a very smart deal for north korea. goodwill is important. we signed a wonderful paper saying they are going to denuclearize. it's going to happen. i was back, i think, six days. why hasn't it started? obama was very close to going to war. you have 30 million people in slow. thousands of cannons. i'm not even talking about nuclear. guess what you have now? eight months, no nuclear testing.
mike pompeo is over there right now. they say he -- meaning me -- these guys, the crooked press, they are so dishonest -- [crowd boos] fake news. they are the fake news media. what do they say all the time? i didn't give anything up. what do they say all the time? he went there. i went to singapore. we had a meeting. by agreeing to meet -- they can't come up with anything else -- i didn't give like clinton or obama would have -- obama wouldn't meet. they wouldn't see him. i didn't have let clinton where they gave him billions of dollars and got nothing.
they couldn't find anything. what did they do? they say, he met. that is what we lost, folks. by the way, obama would've loved to have met. they wouldn't see him. one of the first questions i asked when i was over there. they wouldn't see him. i met. now they are saying it with putin -- putin is highly prepared. trump, will he be prepared for the meeting? trust me. we will do just fine. fake news. bad people. i might end up having a good relationship, that they say, president trump, will he be prepared? president clinton is kgb.
you know what? putin's fine. we are people. i've been prepared for this stuff my whole life. they don't say that. you really do -- i'll tell you what -- i see the way they write. they are so dishonest, and i don't mean all of them. some of the finest people i know are journalists. it's hard to believe when i say this. i hate to say it, but i'll say it. 75% of those people are downright dishonest. they are fake. they quote sources. "a source within the trump organization said" -- they don't have a source. they never use names anymore. jim smith said that donald trump
is a bad guy. they don't do that anymore. they say, "a source within the administration." they make the sources. they don't exist in many cases. anytime you say -- i saw one of them say, 15 on anonymous sources -- i don't have 15 people in the white house. i don't get it. these are really bad people. here's the bottom line. we're here. how the hell did we get here? how did we get here? if you look at jon tester, he signed up for the democrats radical immigration agenda, which is, let them come in, and we believe, they said, in sanctuary cities where they house the criminals and others.
we believe in strong borders and no crime. it's very simple. we believe in coming into this country legally. we believe in the merit system. when you have a business, and somebody comes in -- i hate to tell you this -- got to go with it -- so many businesses are moving back to this country. some in a car companies are coming back into michigan and ohio and pennsylvania and north and south carolina. we need people. or don't have the workers anymore. that is something that is unique. wages are going up, rising, but we need people. we need people who come in under the merit system.
a vote for the democrats in november is a vote to let ms 13 run wild in our communities. to let drugs pour into our cities and to take jobs and benefits away from our hard-working americans, and we are not letting it happen. democrats want anarchy. they don't know who they are playing with. i said it the other day. yes, she is a low eye q individual, maxine waters. i will impeach him. even the democrats are saying, how do you say that he echoed stay away from that word.
no collusion. after spending $22 million, it's awfully tough. the house just left and said, there's no collusion. this is an excuse for democrats who lost an election who actually got their ass kicked. 306-223. that's a pretty good shellacking. take wisconsin. i just left wisconsin. in fact, they are building, foxconn, they make the apple laptops and iphones -- they are
incredible -- they are going to spend like $11 billion. it's going to be a $15 billion plant or there will be nothing like it in this country, and frankly, outside of china, there will be nothing like it. but $15 billion, 15,000 jobs in wisconsin, but think of wisconsin. reagan had his big win. he won every state except one, the great state of wisconsin. i won wisconsin, the first time since dwight eisenhower in 1950. and we won michigan! and we won pennsylvania, north carolina, south carolina, florida.
him him him him him him him him you had a run up the east coast. winning the electoral college is tough for republicans, much tougher than winning the popular vote when people vote for times or whatever. not since dwight eisenhower, 1952 -- was that one of the great evenings? i always say, because the ratings they are getting are beyond belief -- "the new york times" was ready to fold. i came along unfortunately, and they sell. when i leave in seven years from now -- [crowd cheers] they'll fold. when you see "the times," how dishonest they are, when you see "the post," how dishonest they are -- i will say this -- they are doing numbers like they've never done. they are going to endorse me.
should i lose, they are out of business. who are they going to cover? are they going to cover bernie? are they going to cover sleepy joe biden? are they going to cover pocahontas? think of it. she of the great tribal heritage -- what tribe is it? let me think about that. in the meantime, she's based her life on being a minority. pocahontas. they always want me to apologize for saying it -- pocahontas, i apologize to you. to the fake pocahontas, i won't apologize. even the liberals are saying, take a test. i like to not give away secrets. him him him him him
let'sim him him say i'm debating pocahontas. you know those kits they sell on television for two dollars? learn your heritage. i was born in scotland. it turns out you were born in puerto rico. that's ok. the guy says, i was born in germany. he wasn't born in germany. he was born someplace else. in the middle of the debate when she proclaims she is of indian heritage because her mother said she has high cheekbones that's her only evidence. we'll take that can't and say -- we have to do it gently. we are in the #metoo generation plant we will gently take that can't and slowly toss it, hopefully it doesn't hit her or injure her arm, even though it probably only weighs about two
probably only weighs about two ounces, and we will say, i will give you $1 million to her favorite charity, paid for by trump if you take the test and it shows you are an indian. i have a feeling she will say no. no hold that for the debate. the press is very honorable. please don't tell her what i just said. democrats are launching outrageous attacks against our incredible law-enforcement. the new platform of the democratic party -- by the way, i call it the democrat party. it sounds better. they say i'm not a great speaker. why the hell do so many people
this is the only instrument, the mouth. the brain, more important than the mouth. the brain is much more important. do you ever hear something? we had a case -- last week, we were in a great place in wisconsin, and we had tremendous crowds. have the choice of a 22,000-seat arena, and in retrospect, we would have packed it, but the people said to me -- very innocent people -- i said, they filled up a 7000-seat arena.
walked away, thousands of people. i said, why didn't you use the bigger arena? they said, sir, we knew if you had five vacant seats -- if you had five empty seats, they would say, donald trump was unable to fill the arena. i said, you know what? you are how about the one from "the washington post"? they got their four hours early, and the arena hadn't started letting people in. there were just a few people. you all saw that, i hope.
they got their four hour -- there quarter hours before. this writer said, donald trump had an empty arena, except when i showed up, the place was packed, and they had to walk away thousands of people. i didn't see the story. you know who saw the story? the people in the arena. they went nuts. they apologized. you know where they apologized? they apologized on twitter. donald trump, not very good crowd, and they show a totally empty arena. hate to say it -- hate to look at the pictures for the inauguration. we have some monster crowd. big monster. take a look at that. they show an arena, before the people started coming in -- there were a few people -- and they apologized. let me just tell you. the democrats. we call them the democrat party. you know why? the democratic party sounds too
good. i always say the democrat party. actually, the name is the democrat party. the democratic party sounds too good, so i don't want to use it, ok? the new platform of the democrat party is to abolish ice. in other words, they want to abolish immigration enforcement entirely. that's what they want to do. they want everybody coming in. the beauty with ice, they are so tough, when you have these ms-13 thugs come in. him with ice goes in and wipes them out. they are much tougher. they liberate towns in long island and other places. your occupied. it's like a nation is occupied in your country. these are savage gangs. that includes our great border
patrol. that includes our military. who they are always fighting against funding for the military. we will always stand by proudly the heroes, and there are heroes in ice and border patrol. every day i am president, we will track down the gang members, drug dealers, child predators, and criminal aliens. we will get them. we will throw them the hell out of our country or put them in jail.
this year, in november, if you want to save ice, and frankly, if you want to save your law-enforcement, if you want to save your military, getting military funding -- we got $700 billion -- we saved our military. him him him him getting military funding from these democrats is almost impossible. they don't care about our military. they don't care about our law enforcement. you better vote republican. we need more republicans. if you want to protect your family and your community, then you have no choice. you have to vote for republicans. if you want to have a country, if you want borders -- how about borders?
wouldn't it be nice to have borders? yes, we are already building the wall. it started in california, san diego at $1.6 billion. we asking for $5 billion. it's brutal with these people. they know it's the right thing to do, but they think you will help me. they think it will help trump said if we do it, it's good for trump. they have great americans put every day, we are keeping our promises. we have created 3.4 million jobs since election day, which nobody can even believe. nobody believes it and i always say, if i would've said that on the campaign trail, when i was here or anyplace else, it would've been brutal.
they would've said, how could you possibly say a thing like that? 3.4 million new jobs. unemployment claims are at a 45-year low. african-american and hispanic american unemployment have reached the lowest levels in the history of our country. remember, what do you have to lose? what do you have to lose? people didn't like it when i said that. guess what? we were right. a new poll came out last week, we were up 10 points with the hispanic unity. -- community. they want to be safe. unemployment among women is at the lowest level it has been in
65 years. our economic policy can be summed up in three very simple but beautiful words -- jobs, jobs, jobs. since the election, we have lifted 3 million people off of food stamps. by the way, on a humanitarian basis, that's a great thing. do you know how much money we saved doing that as a country? 3 million people. wages for the first time in 18 years are rising again. people can go out. they can actually choose a job, and they have wages that are rising. six months ago, republicans passed the biggest tax cuts in american history, the biggest in american history.
everybody in this room is better for them. everybody is better for them. we slashed taxes for working families and saved family farms. we saved family farms. as a result of our tax cuts, $300 billion poured back into the united states just in the first quarter of this year alone. we are going to have a lot more than that. $300 billion, monday that would've never been able to come back into our country -- it's coming back. i think the number is going to be $5 trillion, but $350 billion has already come back. apple computer is spending $350 billion on new campuses, new facilities. they are bringing back $350 billion. they are putting up their own money. they are going to have subject to the tax code $230 billion coming back. 95% of u.s. manufacturers are optimistic about the future.
that's the highest number ever. think about it. 95%. you don't hear that. we also repealed, despite the thumbs down at 2:00 in the morning -- we also repealed the most horrible aspect of the failed obamacare health care. it's called the individual mandate. it's gone. that was where you had to pay a lot of money for the privilege of not having to pay for bad health care. one of the true ripoffs, but we got rid of it. how many people were paying not
to have it? a lot of people. they paid not to have health care. we are allowing businesses to join forces to buy better health care for less money through association health plans. they just came out two weeks ago, and they cross state lines. they are going to get very low prices. millions of people are already signing up. after decades of waiting, we opened anwar in alaska for energy development. they have been trying to get that approved for 40 years. we have eliminated record numbers of job killing regulations. we've stopped the assault on our farmers, ranchers, hunters, energy producers, and our great and loving miners. we love our miners. we put our miners back to work. clean coal.
we are proudly and strongly protecting our public lands for future generations. you see that. you see that all over. you see legislation. you see what is happening. we approved the keystone and dakota access pipelines right away, 48,000 jobs. 48,000 jobs. we withdrew from the job killing there is climate accord. one of the most unfair deals -- i said, i'm going to get killed when i approve this one. it sounds so pretty, the paris climate -- who wouldn't do that? except it's horrible for us. great for other countries, but horrible for us. we took historic action to
safeguard your constitutional freedoms, protecting religious liberty, defending the second amendment, and confirming a record number of circuit court judges. we are bringing back our wealth from foreign countries. you know this, right? we are bringing back our wealth from foreign countries that have been ripping us off for years. for too long, we watched and waited, and we saw as other countries stole our jobs, cheated our workers, and guided our industry. -- gutted our industry. here? even here. if you go up to new england, you still see the remnants where they moved down to mexico under nafta. that we are negotiating, and i
have a feeling they will come along. if they don't, we will actually do better. the united states of america was the piggy bank that everybody was robbing. let me tell you. our allies in many cases are worse than our enemies. we opened our country to their goods, but they put up massive barriers to keep our products and our goods the hell out of their country. they didn't want to that competition. that's not free trade. that is stupid trade. we aren't going to do that. we have to have fair and reciprocal -- that being the more important word -- we need reciprocal. they charge a 50% tax. we charge a 50% tax. then we say, let's bring it to nothing.
do whatever you want. i will have people complaining. it's incredible. we have countries ripping us off for years. when i said, we are going to put tariffs on them because they have been ripping us off -- we have trade deficits, they have surpluses -- that would be unbelievable. i say, we are going to do something about it, and i get a call from some politicians -- that's terrible. i said, we are going to make great deals. please, leave it the way it is. i say, no, no. we have all the cards. we are the bank everybody is stealing from. you saw it with china. $50 billion, another $200 billion waiting. nobody has ever seen this before. china -- i have great respect for president xi and for china. you have to respect them. they will say, donald trump loves china, loves china more
than he loves the united states. these people. but you have to be careful with what you say. if i say i respect china, and i respect president xi, but they have been killing us -- $507 billion in trade deficits last year, $507 billion. you want to do something about it, and you get attacked. that's not nice. that is not free trade. the war was lost on trade many years ago. when they say, not free trade. i say, no, the war was lost. now we are going to win it. we have all the cards. it's always helpful when you don't have the little ones nipping at your heels. it's easier to negotiate when you have support. you don't have some senator who was forced out of office because
he didn't like me, saying bad things like, we shouldn't be doing that against china. we shouldn't be doing that against so-and-so. we are in such a great position. other countries are calling us. do you know if we knocked down the trade deficit, the trade deficit, by just a little bit, 25% -- we can do that -- if we do that, we pick up 1% in gdp? does anybody know this? $3 trillion and 10 million jobs. we pick up one point. speaking of gdp, remember when i said it is going to go to 3% quickly. now the atlanta fed just predicted 4.8%. who knows? who knows? i can only tell you this.
it's going to be a lot better than you had with obama, and if these people got elected, you would've gone down. they wouldn't have taken the regulations off. they wouldn't have given you the tax cuts. you would have had an economy that was going to crash and burn. it was ready. now we've got something that is a rocket ship. every time i meet a leader of another country, they always say, sir, i would like to congratulate you on the incredible job you have done with united states economy. japan, south korea. every time, they say, i would like to congratulate you. others are actually studying what we've done. they are studying what we've done. we have the greatest people in the world, and we are doing
good. those beautiful, beautiful hats, make america great again. soon to be changed to "keep america great." i can't use "make america great again" for the second run. they said, why the hell did you do it the first time? it's called "keep america great." what we are doing is incredible. we've created -- think of this -- since the election, we have created in wealth $7 trillion. $7 trillion. we are the fastest growing nation on an economy basis -- maybe it is the big nations -- we are the fastest growing economically nation in the world. think of that.
i add "big nation" because they are probably back. we are one of the fastest, and i actually think we are one of the fastest-growing, and we are certainly growing our military and power and strength. we are taking care of our vets more than anybody has ever taken care of veterans. thanks to republican leadership, america is winning again. remember, i tell you the story. america is being respected again. steve daines came up, he said, the people of montana, they are tired of all this winning. too much. they can't take it anymore.
i said, steve, go back to the people. we are going to win, and we are going to win more. we are going to win like we've never one before. like we've never one before. we are finally putting on america first. thousand points of light. what the hell was that he echoed thousand points of light. i know one thing. "make america great again," we understand. putting america first, we understand. we are indeed doing things for this country like nobody
believed. we are rebuilding our economy, at the same time, we are restoring our security. we have people flooding our borders like they haven't flooded before. they are doing an incredible job, but we haven't had a rush like this. people want to come into our economy. the problem is, you have to come in legally. all of that money that we have secured for our military, all of that i've directed the pentagon to begin a process of creating a sixth branch of the united states armed forces called the space force. you know the air force?
you will have the space force. people are so excited by that. it's not just sending rockets to the moon and mars. this is also a military imperative. in fact, in russia, they said, we consider that very threatening, and others did, too. i'm sorry. if it's a part of the air force, the air force is going to focus -- the air force, we need a separate branch. it's called the space force. [applause] people love it. people love it. they get it, and they love it. we passed a landmark v.a. accountability law that everybody said could not be passed. i won't blame the unions, and i won't blame civil service. by licensee and that they had a little blame. everyone said it couldn't be passed, has not been able to be passed for 45 years, and we just got it passed, the day accountability. -- va accountability. so now, you can fire people when they don't do a job. we can fire when they don't do
their job. fired. you get them the hell of the riyadh they are not taking care of our events, we fire them -- they are not taking care of our vets, we fire them. get out of there. they are out of there! the other thing that we just passed a few weeks ago -- you have heard me talk about this -- i've always said, our greatest people, they are the greatest people, the vets. some of them have suffered greatly. we weren't taking proper care of them. they were waiting in line for 12 days. anybody in this audience, go to the doctor. i'm sorry. we can't see you for 12 days. people were going in with nothing much, and they were coming out six months later. they cannot see a doctor. they were coming out with a terminal illness that could have
been corrected easily. i said, why are we sending people who can wait for lung -- long periods of time yet go send them to a local doctor, and we pay the bill. everybody said, we've been trying to get that passed for 40 years. i got it passed three weeks ago. [applause] i am good at getting things passed! remember, we had repeal and replace passed except for one person, and all the democrats. one person plus all the democrats. we got no democrats, including tester. he wasn't there for us. president trump, he's a great man. i really -- you have to vote for us. you have to vote for us. we also believe that american foreign aid dollars should promote america's interests and values. we don't need to send your hard earned money to countries that phone against the united states -- vote against the united
states consistently in the united nations and others. remember, with israel. remember one we had 2 votes on something having to do it israel, i said, we are watching. with all the aid we give all these countries, we are watching. we ended up getting 68 votes, we didn't do anything. because they are ripping us, they are taking our money, they don't even vote for us because they didn't respect our country. but now, they respect us a lot more. and in many cases, they are not getting that money anymore, too. we've stopped. [applause] instead of apologizing for america, we are standing up for america. and we are standing up for our great american flag. [cheers and applause]
president trump: how about the nfl? look. i do want to cause controversy -- usa is right. that i don't want to pass any controversy. they passed the stupid thing. you don't have to do this anymore. if you don't respect the flag or if you don't like the country or whatever it is, just go into the locker room. i think in many respects, that is worse. isn't that worse than not standing? you know? i think that is worse! so they say, go into the locker room. ok, the anthem is getting ready to play, they run into the locker room, then they come back out. you know what? that doesn't play. i actually think in many ways, it's worse. they were so happy, the owners. this commissioner, where he comes from, i have no idea -- they are paying him $40 million a year, and their ratings are down 20%. but you know why the ratings are down? but there are also done because,
people find politics -- in other they find that to be much tougher, meaner and more interesting than watching a football game, they actually do. they are watching the cable networks instead of football. down 20% since this whole thing started. to change us,ed but instead, we are changing washington. we've had a big impact. [applause] and now, we need matt rosendale in the senate, to continue our fight, to drink the swamp. we are going to get it done. we need to work every day from now until the election. for your family, for your community, for your this country, for your constitution. november, i need you to get your
friends, get your colleagues, get your neighbors and get your ass out to vote. vote for matt. they will say, that was not presidential. watch. that was not presidential. did i ever tell you how easy it would be for me to be presidential? like we are all -- me, you, we are really smart people. i have, by the way, the most loyal people in the world, the smartest people. the toughest people, they are the greatest people in the world. [applause] but they will say something like -- that is not presidential. and what i say -- acting presidential is so easy for me. it's much easier than what i do. you walk up to the microphone. right? good evening, ladies and gentlemen. [laughter]
of the great state of montana. you have to put a little emphasis, right? this is wonderful to be with you tonight, thank you for being here, goodbye. now the people of montana, they know. loyal citizens like you helped build this country, and together, we are taking back our country, returning the power where it belongs, to the people! [cheers and applause] [crowd chants "usa"]
president trump: our proud american ancestors crossed oceans, scaled mountains, defeated empires, and built the modern world with their own two hands. they were brilliant. this state, the state of montana, was forged by incredible pioneer men and women that braved the cold and tamed in the wilderness to build a beautiful life right out here in the open. and i did look at those skies -- you know, i heard so much about your skies. [applause] i heard so much about your skies, i wrote in and looked at those skies. ah... not seeing pollution is a wonderful thing. those are beautiful skies. these montana pioneers were tough. they were strong, they were brilliant.
they didn't have a lot of money and they didn't have a lot of luxury. they had heart, grit, and they had each other. and above all else, they love their families, they love their country, and they loved their god. we stand on the shoulders of american patriots who knew how to fight, and they knew how to win. you talk about winning. they knew how to win. and with your help, your voice, and your vote, we are going to keep on fighting. and we are going to keep on winning. and the truth is, you will never, ever, get tired of winning. never. we won't back down.
we won't give in. and we will never, ever surrender. we will never, ever quit. we go forward to victory. because we are americans. [applause] and our hearts bleed red, white, and blue. [applause] we are one people. we are one family. and we are one glorious nation under god. and together, we will make america wealthy again. soon, we will make america strong again. we will make america safe again.

to bery has the potential wiped out. i was born and raised in alaska. i have some issues that need to be taken care of in the state. theis protecting environment and giving money back to the people. i think it's the right of the people to have and be able to keep the resources of alaska to the shareholders of the state. lately been on my mind is the children who are suffering throughout united states. i'm kind of upset with what the attorney general and mr. trump another's have done for creating this child abuse.
