[cheers and applause] president trump: greg gianforte. he is a fighter and a winner. he is a winner. he loves your state. thank you very much. great job.
everybody has to get out and vote for greg and people who are going to vote for us, because without that you would lose a lot of the things we won over the last two years. can't let that happen. but i am here for a specific reason. please welcome the person that we have such respect for, now leading in the polls. [cheers and applause] president trump: but i don't want to say that. i want to say he is just a little bit, like, one or two points behind. is that ok for me to say? but he is somebody who is going to be a phenomenal united states senator from montana, matt rosendale. matt, come on up. where is matt? come on up, matt. [cheers and applause]
president trump: come on up, matt. [cheers and applause] [shouting] mr. rosendale: welcome back to montana, mr. president.

conservative reinforcements you need to continue your good work.

[cheers and applause] mr. rosendale: we are going to repeal and replace obamacare and give you options on health care that you can actually afford. we are going to protect your public land and fight against the liberals that are trying to track your guns. [cheers and applause] [booing] mr. rosendale: we are going to confirm more justices like neil gorsuch and kavanaugh, people

[cheers and applause] mr. rosendale: we are going to secure our border, enforce our laws, and build that wall. [cheers and applause] [crowd chanting "build that wall!"]
mr. rosendale: we are going to keep this economy growing, your taxes low, and keep government off of your back and out of your wallet. [cheers and applause] mr. rosendale: we have all seen the problems with big government, politicians representing themselves and not us, intoxicated with privilege and power. they start worrying about the next election instead of the next generation. president trump, i agree with you, we need term limits. [cheers and applause] mr. rosendale: that's why if you elect me, i promise to serve no more than two terms. the people of montana support
term limits. they believe in doing your job and returning home, and so do i.

mr. rosendale: thank you, montana. thank you, president trump. may god bless each and everyone of you and the united states of america. [cheers and applause] president trump: thank you, matt, very much. thank you. [cheers and applause] president trump: very, very important that we elect matt and, frankly, other republicans. we have to get the republicans. we will get things we want. we have started the wall. we have spent $3.2 billion on the wall. we have to get the rest of the funding. we are going to get it.
the democrats want to obstruct that. they want to obstruct our great justices. by the way, you obstruct these justices, you are going to lose your second amendment, your right to those guns. you are going to lose your second amendment, so be careful. [booing] president trump: be careful. and don't forget, tester is going to vote with the waters and pelosis. can you believe it? maxine waters is the new leader of the party. [booing] president trump: can you believe it? maxine waters. she is something. he is going to vote for schumer. i will say this. one thing. their policies are horrible. they are for open borders, meaning let all the crime come in. they are against so many things that you want. you know, i have been saying and saying it strongly, they are going to take away, they are going to hurt your social security so badly, and they are
killing you on medicare. just remember that, i am going to protect your social security. we are going to take care of your social security. matt rosendale is going to make sure we are not touching your social security and your medicare is only going one way. that is stronger. they are going to end up taking it away from you, and you won't even know what happened. on top of that, you will pay more taxes. it is crazy. jon tester will never drain the swamp, because he happens to live in the swamp and loves the swamp. o jon tester -- i feel a little guilty, because he did run the most beautiful commercial. i heard yesterday he started and he's like, my best friend, president trump this, president trump that. it's amazing when you win a state by a lot points how even democrats can like you.
isn't that crazy? but the problem is, he is never going to vote for me. but he has taken more cash from lobbyists than almost anyone in the entire senate. he is controlled by his donors. one of the saddest things i have seen is when jon tester and what he did to a great, great man, admiral ronnie jackson. [booing] president trump: admiral jackson was subjected to horrible lies and smears. i am a victim of that too, but i am sort of getting used to it. [laughter] president trump: at least it's my job. i am a politician. i never thought i was going to say i am a politician. can you believe -- i guess i am a politician, you know? [cheers] president trump: i guess i am a politician. i did not want to say that.
one of the few times i have said it. yeah, i'm a politician. but you know, i have only run once, and that was for president, and i won. how did that happen? [cheers and applause] president trump: a lot of people have spent their lives trying to be president. some we respect, some we don't respect too much. but ronnie jackson is a doctor, he is an admiral. he is actually the doctor that gave me my physical. he said that i am in great shape. [cheers and applause] president trump: and the democrats and liberals, the deep state, they were very upset to hear that, so they got tougher and tougher and they lied more and they write more books now. there are books stacked up this high. actually, the ones that are really good our number 1, 2, and 3 on the bestsellers list.
the really good one is by justice -- i call her justice. she's a judge, but she is justice to me -- judge jeanine. we love her. judge jeanine. about bongino? successful book. so many, and they all are doing great, and that makes me happy. but the media does not talk about those books. they only talk about the bad ones, of which there are plenty. they are lies, but they are plenty. admiral jackson, his reputation was attacked. all of those horrible things that were said about him turned out to be lies and false. remember? people do not want to say that. in the last election, washington
democrats put jon tester in charge of electing extreme liberals. i am talking about serious liberals, many of whom you are watching attacking judge kavanaugh and looking like for, ols, frankly. looking like fools. [cheers and applause] one of them will most likely be a candidate to run against your favorite of all time president, me. when i see the anger in their eyes, when i see the anger of what they say to an intellect far greater than theirs, not even a contest, the anger and the hatred, what are they doing? what are they doing? they are losing by doing it.
they are losing by doing it. i want to finish off, what tester did to admiral jackson should never, ever be allowed. ronnie jackson is a great man. ronnie jackson has led a great and beautiful life. to have lies told about him, i would never repeat what they are. in my case, they repeat them. i say don't repeat them, they are terrible. they say no, we will deny them. do we love sean hannity? [cheers and applause] president trump: he puts up all of these losers who say horrible things. i have got to talk to him. one after another. donald trump, he has lost it up here. it is tough. i stand up here giving speeches for an hour and a half, many times without notes. and then they say he has lost
it. yet, we have 25,000 people showing up to speeches. [cheers and applause] president trump: by the way, look at all the fake news back there. [booing] president trump: donald trump. they go, donald trump. donald trump has lost it. i beat 17 great republicans, senators, i beat governors, a couple of great people like ben carson. ben carson was tough. but i beat 17 great people. and i respectfully say, i beat the bush dynasty. ok. [cheers and applause]
president trump: that felt good. pretty recently. ok. now i have the privilege of going against hillary clinton. [booing] so i beat crooked hillary. [cheers and applause] i beat crooked hillary. the electoral college is hard. we are starting to find things out that we didn't know, it is hard and harder to win the popular vote. popular vote, you go to three, four states. it is like the hundred yard dash versus running the mile. you practice differently. she forgot that. she forgot to go to important states. i don't think i'm going to go to michigan. i don't think them going to go to wisconsin, she said. i hear her husband said, you better go to michigan, you better start going to wisconsin. fortunately, she do not listen.
think of it. i beat the republicans, governors, senators. i beat the bush dynasty. respect. i beat hillary, who stole it from bernie. bernie should have won, but that's ok. superdelegates. but she has superdelegates. bernie should be angry. why isn't he angry? crazy bernie. he is so crazy. i saw him the other day on television. he is ranting and raving behind a microphone, i will do this and i will do that, his hair is flying, he is going crazy. [laughter] president trump: he's going crazy. i said to my wife, honey, look at that guy. you got a hand it to him. he does not quit. he does not give up. i do not understand why he allowed that to happen and he goes back to being an
independent. but now he is going back in. and he is going to run. think of it. you beat two dynasties, all of these politicians. when i announced i was going to run -- [cheers and applause] president trump: he said, why would he run? he didn't know me, so i am not insulted. he said, this is the finest field of republicans ever assembled. i actually did, i looked at my wife and said, that is his business. these are the finest ever assembled. why am i doing this? then i said, that's ok, i will do it anyway. let's see what happens. [cheers and applause] president trump: so i beat all these senators, all these governors, all these brilliant political minds. then i beat the other side. is he competent? i think i'm pretty competent. don't you think so?
is he competent? and their ratings are down the tubes. you know why? because people get it. people get it. it is funny to hear that you have all these victories -- more important than the victories, we are winning in the united states now. we are winning on trade, with our military, we are knocking the hell out of the terrorists. we are winning now in the united states. you look at what is going on. we have new deals eating made. -- new deals being made. a deal we just made with mexico, a fair deal. it is not that her rent this -- that horrendous deal made years ago that should have been changed. we negotiated with canada and we'll see what happens. we are in a little bit of a skirmish, but doing well with china. you see what is going on. really well.
[cheers and applause] president trump: i have great respect for president xi of china. but honestly, we have to be treated fairly. last year, we had a trade deficit of anywhere from $375 billion to $504 billion. either is not acceptable. we are doing that. i just came on stage and was told that kim jong-un said some terrific things about me. he said i have faith in president trump. think of that, you don't hear that. [cheers and applause] president trump: just moments ago, they put on that he said very strongly that we want to denuclearize north korea during president trump's tenure. [cheers and applause] president trump: he just said it. just said it.
but in the meantime, even if he did not, we got our hostages back. there have been no more missile testing. will there has been no more rockets flying over japan. there has been no more nuclear testing. we have a good feeling. he likes me, i like him. who knows what is going to happen? but i can tell you, the day before i took office, i must say, as you know, the rhetoric was fairly tough -- it is interesting. with him, i had tough rhetoric. saying, ite news was is too tough. he is going to get us into a war. it is terrible, he is being too tough. it's horrible. what does he know about this? he knows nothing. i watched all of these guys who have been losing for 30 years explaining why my method of negotiation was not working. [cheers and applause]
president trump: i will tell you what, i respect him and he respects me. i think something is going to happen. take your time. i say we take your time. sanctions are on. but think of it, we got back our hostages. i did not pay $1.8 billion. we got back our hostages. [cheers and applause] president trump: nothing. we paid nothing. but it is funny because other because i got them to pay billions and billions of dollars more because we are paying for nato. we are paying a massive percentage of cost protecting europe. i got them to pay billions more and the fake news said he was not respectful to the leaders of other countries. they are right and away, because i said, you have to pay up. you have to pay up. you are delinquent. in real estate, we say, you are delinquent.
somebody asked me, one of the leaders in front of the other 28 nations, who i get along with -- they respect us. for years, nato spending was going like this. by the way, this is spending to protect them against russia. they keep talking about russia. we are protecting -- i get them to pay billions of dollars more. ok? they said, sir, can we ask you a question? it is always nice when a president or prime minister calls you sir. that means he has a respect. he said, if you do not walk away from these meetings with us paying what we are supposed to be paying or much more, will you leave? i said yes, i will. they all said -- [cheers and applause] president trump: they all said we will pay. we will pay.
now, the mainstream media does not want me to say that. they want me to say no, no, sir, we will never leave you. but then there is no reason to pay. why would they pay? suppose they asked me the same question. we are talking about billions -- last year, secretary general, head of nato, he is my biggest fan and i like him, too. but he goes around saying, last minor ashat i did was i had only been office for about 14 seconds. i did not want to use too much vibrato. they paid $44 billion extra. last year. this year, it is higher. because now i feel comfortable. i ask them in a more firm manner. and they are paying and they should pay. they were saying that i did not treat them well. if i would have done what they said or if i would have said what these consultants and these
people i watch on television, he used to do this, they all failed. we have our own way, a great way. but it is really interesting because when i was dealing with north korea, they said, he's too tough. he's too tough. one of my best meetings ever was with vladimir putin. and they said he was too nice. he was too nice. they wanted me to have a boxing match on the stage. we had a great meeting. , wealked about ukraine talked about syria, we talked about the protection of israel, we talked about so many great things. but they came back and said, it was terrible. i said, what was terrible? we had a great meeting. when i came off stage, everyone said, that was great. thank you. then i got onto the plane and they said sir, i don't think they liked it. i said, they liked it but they are fake. they are fake news. we had a great meeting.
it was a great meeting. the funny thing, if i was tough, if i would have said, you will never do this again, there will be no more of this and that and stood him in the face and started boxing, you know what would have happened? they would have said, he is too tough. that was a disgrace to our nation. the truth is, with these people, you cannot win. but we are winning. i am president. your president. we're winning. [cheers and applause] president trump: so everybody knows jon tester's game. he says one thing and montana -- in montana but does the exact opposite in washington. that is what happens. he will come home and tell you about the second amendment and he will vote for something where you knock the hell out of it.
jon tester talks like he is from montana, but he votes like he is nancy pelosi. [booing] president trump: look at his voting. it is the same voting as schumer ncy policy, and waters, maxine waters. he voted no on tax cuts and voted for the obamacare disaster, which we almost repealed and replaced. but we will get it done. remember this. remember this, we got rid of the most unpopular element of obamacare. right? the individual mandate. [cheers and applause] president trump: we got rid of the individual mandate. that was the most unpopular thing. that is where you have the right to pay a fortune for the privilege of not having to pay a fortune for bad health care. right? it's incredible. but we got rid of it.
also,ill have to say obamacare was going up 115%, 125%. 80%, 60%, 53%, all different places. it was going up massively. we want to repeal and replace. if we have enough republicans, we well and we will have much better health care. [cheers and applause] president trump: but to do it, and we will do it -- we will -- we had it done. remember, tester voted no. he voted no on kate's law. what could be better than kate law? he voted no on enhanced betting -- on enhanced vetting for refugees. let's not vet them, but let them pour into montana. jon tester voted in favor of
deadly sanctuary cities. [booing] president trump: so that is not a person from montana. i have a lot of friends in montana. i don't get it. how did he get elected? how did he get elected? jon tester voted for very liberal obama judges. 99% of the time. and yet, he would make it impossible for an incredible, distinguished, admiral, doctor not to get in. figure that one. super liberal judges, many of whom are mocked and scorned, jon tester voted against our incredible supreme court justice neil gorsuch. how do you do that? how do you do that? [booing] first in his class at harvard.
first in his class at oxford. he decided, i will vote no. by the way, justice gorsuch is great and doing a fantastic job. justice kavanaugh will do the same. [cheers and applause] it is embarrassing to watch those people make fools of themselves as they scream and shout at this gentleman. this election you are not just candidate, you are voting for which party controls congress. very important. i do not even bring it up because i view it as something -- they like to use the impeach word. maxine waters says we will impeach him. he didn't do anything wrong. it doesn't matter, we will impeach him. how do you impeach somebody that is doing a great job? that hasn't done anything wrong? our economy is good. how do you do it? [cheers and applause]
we will impeach him! but he is doing a great job! it does not matter. we will impeach him. it is a hell of a place in washington. if that happens, every time a republican or democrat opposite got elected president -- let's say a democrat gets elected someday, hopefully a long time -- let's say we have a republican house. we will impeach that democrat , right? we won by a hell of a margin. that is a lot. that electoral college -- we won by a lot. we are in there and we have the best employment numbers in our
history, the best economy. look at the numbers in every category is great. we are doing a great job. putting on phenomenal judges. you take that and what you are going to have is a country that is going to turn into a third world country because if the opposite party becomes president, every time before it even starts, before you have found out whether or not he or she is going to do a good job, they will say, we want to impeach. it is ridiculous. i will worry about that if it happens. if it does, it's your fault because you did not vote. you didn't go to vote. that's the only way to happen. i will be the only president in history -- they will say what a job he has done but we are impeaching him. today's democrat party is held
hostage by haters. absolute haters. left wing haters. angry mob, deep state radicals and their fake news allies. [booing] those people are the best. they're the best allies. you look at "the washington post" or "the new york times." i can never get a good story. look at this horrible thing that took place today. is this subversion? treason? even liberals that hate me say that is terrible what they did. it is really terrible. when i won the election, the new york times -- all of their subscribers were leaving. when i am alternately no longer president and about six and a half years from now -- [cheers and applause] the new york times will go out
of business. all of them will be out of business, even cnn. they are almost out of business now. [cheers and applause] they will be out of business. the new york times, you remember, it is famous. they apologized for their bad coverage of me. they apologized to their subscribers because after i won, everyone said, what the hell happened? we are reading this garbage and the guy they kill every day, he won. they wrote -- does anyone remember? they wrote an apology to their subscribers to stop the flow of people leaving and giving up their subscription to the new york times. it was quite amazing to watch. honestly, for two weeks, they covered me well. and then it began. it got worse and worse and worse.
now we have reached an all-time low. the level of hatred is great. on the way over here, i saw a liberal pundit. he was filled with anger and he was attacking me and our great administration. we have great people. the white house is really working good. did you see that my wife put out a tweet today? she doesn't do this. she put out a tweet. they had me stomping around and screaming with anger up in my area of the white house, where i live with my wife and son, baron. they had me screaming, shouting like a lunatic. and i had a television, there were six people in my office. we were having a talk on trade. it happened to be trade with canada. they said, sir, you are not up
there screaming and ranting. you are talking. that is how dishonest it has come. i asked a young staffer of mine, why are they so filled with this much hatred? our country is thriving, jobs are booming, prosperity is soaring, and the future has never looked brighter for the usa. the young aide looked at me and said, mr. president, these liberal pundits, the haters, they are angry because you have upset their entire way of life. [cheers and applause] i said, but let's get this straight, the country is really doing well. and he looked at me and he said something that maybe is true, i find it hard to believe. he said, sir, they just do not care. when you look at everything that
is happening including military rebuilding and everything we are building is being made right here, the best missiles the world, the best plainsman world, world,best planes in the the best ships in the world are all being made right here. the so-called resistance is angry because their horrible ideas have been rejected. by the american people. it is driving them crazy. they are the ones who have been driven crazy. the latest active resistance is the op-ed published in the new york times by an anonymous, gutless coward. nobody knows who the hell he or she is. it is probably she. for the sake of our national
security, the new york times should publish his name at once. their reporters should investigate. that would be a good scoop. [cheers and applause] that would be a good scoop. unelected deep state operatives who defy the voters to push their own secret agendas are truly a threat to democracy itself. i was so heartened when i looked. it has backfired. people that do not exactly dig us, and do not like me, are supporting me. we have picked up a lot of support. at some point this whole thing is going to be exposed and it is bad and dangerous and sad for the media and mainstream media. it really is sad. when i tell you about the good news coming out of korea, they
will hardly even report it. if this were president obama, that would be the biggest story in the history of the country. it is going to be, sooner or later, it will be exposed. the policies of our political opponents have brought about only failure, destruction, and humiliation to the country. look at what happened. look at where we were and look at where we are. [cheers and applause] we have tremendous potential upward. other countries are not doing well. had i not won, we would have been in negative. we would not be at 4.2. we would be in negative numbers. we were going down. we were low and headed down.
we freed up this country with deregulations and tax cuts. we freed up the country and it is great to watch. [cheers and applause] if you do not elect matt, i tell you, they can change it quickly. nancy pelosi said yesterday she wants to raise taxes. [booing] is raising your taxes supposed to be a popular thing? what is going on is they have been driven so far left, i do not know why they do not talk about red waves. historically, the person that is president when you have the party having the president, they do not do well in midterms. nobody has ever had an economy like we have. nobody has ever had this economy. hopefully, you will remember that. they robbed our middle class. while spending trillions of dollars on adventures overseas. we are pulling way back but we
are so respected now that we can pull back a little bit. we are so respected that they are not playing games with us anymore. i do not want to tempt them by telling you things that don't happen anymore. there is no reason for me to tell you. when you see some of the things that happened four years ago or six years ago and eight years ago, take a look at what happened and take a look at what happens now when we take the horrible iran deal and terminated it. look at what is going on. we are respected again as a nation. [applause] we are respected again as a nation. but these people enriched themselves while shipping our jobs to other countries, and they oversaw the greatest transfer of wealth in the history of the world. it's the greatest transfer. nafta was such a bad deal, they
said please, extend nafta, i said, we have to renegotiat it. it is such a bad deal. and when i was campaigning i said, we will renegotiat it or we will cancel it. i don't care. but these disastrous policies were on the ballot box in 2016, and they lost and they lost big. that is why we are here. [applause] in 2016 the american people voted to reject corruption, they voted to reclaim their independence, and they voted most importantly to make america great again. it's very simple. [applause] soon we will be changing it to keep america great. keep america great. seriously. when should we do that, by the way? soon we are going to have to change because we are doing well.
but when did we change make america great again to keep america great? i don't know. [applause] soon. soon. we are draining the swamp, and the swamp is fighting back. but don't worry, we will win. we will win. we always win. we always win. this november you need to vote republican, vote for matt rosendale, and vote to put america first. have to do it. have to do it. republicans stand for stopping illegal immigration, fixing horrible trade deals, cutting your taxes in a major, major way, biggest tax cut in the history of our country. [applause] and in addition to that, we got
anwar, you know what that is, right, in alaska? they've been trying to get that approved for 50 years. we got an approved, as part of that plan. we will be defending your social security, which is the democrats will destroy. and we will be defending your medicare, and protecting the safety net for truly needy americans, truly needy americans that need help, that our americans, not for people that come into our country illegally. [applause] democrats want to raise your taxes. they want to raise them. i don't get it. i don't think i could win if i said, ladies and gentlemen, i'm going to raise your taxes. alice, i don't think i'm voting for that guy. they want to raise your taxes.
i don't know. maybe they know something i don't. blue wave? they will raise your taxes, let crime go on all around our country, we have so many people that are great people, these are warriors, these are warriors, i don't want to do it. you don't want to do it. i look at these people in the front row, two of whom i know, they don't want to do it. ice does it like, let's go out to dinner. they have done an incredible job. so they want to raise your taxes, they want to open your borders, they want crime to pour in because that is what is going to happen when you open your borders. how about the governor, the governorship of california? he just announced he wants to open borders and wants to let anybody come in that wants to.
and then he wants to pay for all medical, for all school. what happens, i said, if the entire world decides to go to california because they get free medical care, and free education? california has just increased in size to 500 million people. california has just become one really large person. california, think of it. he says, i want to open the border and i want everybody to come in, at the same time for illegal aliens, illegal immigrants, a lot of different names, he wants to get rid of ice, he wants to cut down on law enforcement and he wants to pay for their medical, their health care and their education. look, it's all about common sense. i think i won because of common sense. [applause] and because, like you, like you, you, me, we are smart.
we are really smart. but i said to myself, this is common sense, everyone's going to come in. i may even move to california to get free health care. i may move there. the last time democrats were in power, they cut medicare by more than $700 billion to pay for the scandalous obamacare. now democrats want to steal trillions of dollars from medicare. they are going to ruin your medicare. watch. they want to turn america into venezuela. i don't think so. [booing] democrats will destroy medicare , with medicare for all, you heard that, medicare for all. they will run out of money in the third day and then it will none, or ite for
will be 1/10 medicare what you've used to get. they want to rob our seniors of their medicare, and they want to raise your social security. they will destroy your social security. and i'm going to save your social security. we are not touching your social security. do you remember when i ran? i said, i'm not touching social security. and everybody else wanted to do things with social security. i said, we are not touching your social security. right? i didn't touch your social security. remember what i said? growth. growth will take care of it. and that's what is happening. we are growing, beyond what anybody expected, beyond what anybody said was possible, we are growing. a lot of money is coming in. democrats also want open borders, and all of that equals massive costs, massive, massive
crime, and massive tears. tears. you look at the families who have been so badly hurt. republicans want strong borders. we want to finish the wall. we are up to $3.2 million. we have done a lot of work on the wall. a lot of people don't understand that, but is that ok. we've got to finish the wall and we will get that approved. we will get that approved or did move it along. i could do that all thing in one year but these guys are holding back. the only thing democrats are good for is obstruction and resisting. whole campaign is resist, resist. i don't get it. we will have no crime. we will protect america's people and great citizens. we want to protect american benefits. and we are doing that, and i have done that. in maryland, the democratic candidate for governor wants to give illegal aliens free college
tuition courtesy of the american taxpayer. [crowd booing] come on in, free college. in florida, the democrat nominee for governor wants to abolish ice and release hundreds of criminals onto our streets. he wants to also take care of their medicare, and every other thing you can take care of, you name it, he wants to take care of it. and florida will be a disaster. florida is one of the most successful states in our union, and it will be a disaster. you have a great candidate in florida. it's called the republican candidate. ron desantis. ron for governor. this election is a choice between democrats want to abolish ice, and republicans who
want to abolish ms 13. it is very simple. people have no idea how bad they are. nancy pelosi got extremely angry at me when she started yelling, they are human beings, don't talk to them like that, don't call them animals. remember she said, don't call them animals? then you see what they do and how they do it and the viciousness of it. no nancy, i'm sorry, you are going up the wrong tree, nancy. republicans stand proudly with the brave men and women of ice, with border patrol and with our law enforcement. [applause] every single day, ice is tracking down drug dealers, child predators, gang members and vicious killers. and we are either throwing them the hell in jail or getting them the hell out of our country, and
we are doing it better. [applause] this election is about safety. this election is about jobs, its safety and it is jobs. thanks to republican leadership, our economy is booming like never before in our history. think of it. in our history. nobody knew this was going to happen. if i would have said this on the campaign trail, if i would have used 4.2%, adjusted upward from 4.1%, 4.2% gdp, the press would have gone after me, they would have said impossible. jobless claims just fell to a 50 year low. 50 year. [applause] we have created over 4 million new jobs since the election and
lifted almost 4 million americans off of food stamps. think of that. not only is it good for them, our country saves a tremendous amount of money, but it is good for them, they have jobs. we have added over 400,000 new manufacturing jobs that the democrats say are gone, and that is going very shortly, with what is happening in some areas, it will go to over 600,000 manufacturing jobs. something that makes me very happy. it makes a lot of my friends very happy. african-american unemployment recently achieved the lowest, think of it, the lowest ever recorded in the history of our country. [applause] remember i said, what do you have to lose? go with me, what do you have to lose? so good. we are going to have tremendous
african-american support. before i said, what do you have to lose? now i say, see, look at what is going on, the lowest unemployment in the history of our country, hispanic, and asian-american unemployment has also reached their lowest rates in the history of our country. history. youth unemployment has just reached its lowest rate in nearly half a century. unemployment for americans is so important. without a high school diploma, has reached the lowest level ever recorded. think of that. [applause] women's unemployment recently reached its lowest rate in nearly 65 years. we have added 100,000 jobs
building pipelines and supporting the production of oil and natural gas. [applause] we have added something great to our portfolio by increasing exports of clean, beautiful coal by over 60%. 60%. [applause] and montana knows something about coal. think about that, over 60%. we freed it up. it's a great natural resource. clean. i call it clean, beautiful coal. what they can do with coal today. in the first eight months of 2018, montana coal production increased by 2.5 million tons. that's a lot. that's a lot. [applause]
to continue this incredible momentum, we need to elect more republicans like matt rosendale. because it can be turned off, it can be turned off so quickly. last week we made another truly historic announcement, we are replacing nafta with a beautiful new brand, because it is a much different deal. it will be called the u.s.-mexico trade deal. [applause] one on one. and hopefully canada will come into that deal, but if they don't, that will be fine, but if we do, that will be fine, either way we can live and will be very happy. i think they will. because we do love canada. they have treated us pretty badly in trade for the past 40 years, but that's ok. wasn't my fault.
we are going to make a fair deal with canada, just like we did with mexico. we are cracking down on unfair trade practices emanating from china. america is tired of getting ripped off. we are going to get a great deal for our farmers and ranchers and factory workers. we are giving our workers and businesses a level playing field. republicans passed the biggest package of tax cuts, and very importantly, tax reforms. the average montana family of four will take home 2281 extra dollars this year, and many will take home much more than that. and our tax cut saves family farms and ranches and small businesses from unfair estate
tax, also known as the death tax. [applause] so now, you have a beautiful farm, your husband or wife, and you love your kids, by the way, if you don't love your kids, don't leave it to them, don't worry about it, but you want to leave it to your kids. you would like your kids to take over the farm, but you couldn't do it because they had to borrow a fortune in order to work it out. we got rid of that tax. that's a big deal. that's a big deal. [applause] so you can leave your small business or your farm or ranch, and they won't have to go into a big bank and say, gee whiz, wouldn't it be great if we could borrow some money? by the way, frank, i fixed it. dodd frank has been changed. we are canceling obama's
illegal, anti-coal, so-called clean power plan. it sounds so beautiful. you know what that means. when i did it, this sounds so nice, clean our plan. -- clean power plan. there is only one problem. it doesn't work. it doesn't work. it will put our country out of business. it took away our greatest natural resources. we couldn't do anything with them. it was such a pretty term, clean power plan. it's out of business now. we are going to have clean power but it's not going to be under the clean power plan. and we are strongly protecting our public lands for hunters and fishermen and everyone who loves the outdoors, like my son don, who comes here a lot. [applause] my son comes here a lot. a lot of you know my son, don,
loves hunting. we just veteran choice, giving a veteran a right to see his private doctor. we also passed the landmark v.a. accountability act. they have been trying to pass both of them for more than 45 years. i got them both passed. and now, accountability, when a government worker abuses one of our great veterans, we love our veterans, we turn to them and say, you are fired, folks. we secured a record 700 billion dollars for our military this year, and $716 billion next year for our military. [applause] and on my direction, the
pentagon is working hard to create a sixth branch of the united states armed forces, the space force. so important. so important. people don't know. we are not just talking about going up to the moon, going up to mars, we are talking about, you need it. now you need it. you look at russia, you look at china, you look at what's going on, what they're doing, we need it. we will be the best in the world very shortly in space. i withdrew united states from the horrible iran deal, and i also recognized the capital of israel and also opened the american embassy in jerusalem. big deal. that was a big deal. and the embassy is already built. it was built about 20 years ahead of budget schedule. i would say we are probably about 20 years, you know that story. i'm not going to tell it.
but we built it real fast. we had the best location. they are all looking for a location, and a friend of mine, the ambassador to israel said, we already have the best piece of land in all of israel, the best piece of land in jerusalem. and we have a building on it. let's renovate it. so instead of spending $1.2 billion, we spent $400,000. and instead of opening it in 10 or 20 years or maybe never, we opened it about four months later. it's been open for a long time already. a lot of people working there. so we have the embassy already opened. do i get credit for saving $1 billion? not really. someday. someday. you know, when abraham lincoln made the gettysburg address speech, the great speech, did you know he was ridiculed? he was ridiculed. he took the horse and carriage up from the white house, he wrote it partially in that carriage and partially at a desk
in the lincoln bedroom, which is incredible, by the way, and the white house, and he went to gettysburg and he delivered that speech, the gettysburg address. and he was excoriated by the fake news. they had fake news then. he was excoriated. they said it was a terrible, terrible speech. they said it was far too short. many of us know it by memory. it was far too short, and it was far too flowery, too flowery, fourscore and seven years ago, right, too flowery. then he died. 50 years after his death, they said it may have been the greatest speech ever made in america. [applause] pretty good. pretty good. i have a feeling that's going to happen with us.
in different ways, that's going to happen with us. for years you watched as your leaders apologized to other countries for america, they apologized. we are so sorry, so sorry, so sorry, and now you have a president who is standing up for our country. [applause] standing up. look at the size of that guy. man. look at this guy. do i like him? wow. [applause] we are not going to mess with him tonight, i tell you. thank you, man. that's cool. that's really great.
thank you, very much. we are standing up for your values. we are standing up for montana. and we are standing up for our national anthem and our flag. [applause] but if democrats get back into power, they will try to reverse all of our incredible gains, gains like nobody thought possible. so this november you need to get your friends, get your family, get your coworkers, and get out and vote republican. get out and vote for rosendale. he is going to be a great senator and he will always vote for what we want. he will always vote for america first to make america great again. matt will always be voting for us. it won't just be talk. loyal citizens like you helped build this country, and together
we are taking back our country, at times not so easily, but it is happening and it is happening fast. we are returning power back to where it belongs, back to the american people. our american ancestors braved the oceans, tamed the wilderness, won a revolution and fought to victory in two world wars. we defeated fascism, triumphed over communism, and we delivered millions into freedom. our ancestors built the railroads, linked the highways, and they proudly planted an american flag on the face of the moon, which is not shown in that movie. they did not show that in the movie. see, what they are missing is that that movie would have been
a much bigger success if they had planted the flag like they were supposed to. we stand on the shoulders of generations of american veterans who knew how to work, new have to fight, and knew how to win -- knew how to fight and knew how to win. we will keep fighting. we will not bend. we will not break. we will never give up your read will never, ever back down. and we will always fight on to victory. we are going to have a victory, we will keep it going. because we are america, and our hearts bleed red, white and blue. [applause] we are one people one family, and one glorious nation under
god. and together we will make america wealthy again, we will make america strong again, its already happening. we will make america safe again, and above all, we will make america great again. thank you very much, montana, thank you. ♪ ♪ i saw her today at the reception a glass of wine in her hand. i knew she was going to meet her connection. at her feet was her footloose man. you can't always get what you want.
