vice pres. pence: well, hello, mississippi. [applause] it is great to be back in the magnolia state.
an honor to be here with the governor, and so many great mississippians. but i am here for one reason, and one reason only. mississippi and america need s cindy hyde-smith back in the united states senate. [applause] thank you all for coming out tonight. it's really great to be with you all. it is especially great to be here with a friend of mine.
and a man who loves the state of mississippi, and the man that mississippi voted overwhelmingly to make the 45th president of the united states of america, president donald trump. [applause] president trump and i are proud to stand with cindy hyde-smith, because she stood with us. we know that senator cindy hyde-smith is going to continue to be a champion for mississippi and our agenda when you send her back to the united states senate. [applause] you know, when you think about the past two years, it's just amazing. i think there's only one way you can describe the last two years. it has been two years of action. it has been two years of results.
under president donald trump, it has been two years of promises made and promises kept. [applause] mississippi and we are just getting started. [applause] think about it. think about it. under president trump's leadership, we are rebuilding our military and restoring our democracy. [applause] we are finally getting our veterans access to the world-class, real-time health care that you earned in the uniform of the united states. [applause] we are enforcing our laws, securing our border. hi and as caravans of illegal immigrants rush our southern border, we've got a president who made it clear, no one is
coming into this country unless they come in legally. [applause] we have already started
to build that wall. [applause] we are building it. [applause] we've also been appointing a record number of men and women to our federal courts at every level and they are all strong, conservatives who will uphold the god-given liberties enshrined in the constitution of the united states. and we have rolled back red tape, unleashed american energy,
bought for trade deals that are fair and reciprocal, and right before the last christmas, this president cut taxes across the board for working families, small businesses and family farms, all across mississippi. and the results have just been amazing. because of the leadership that you support from the white house to capitol hill, i hope you heard the numbers because they are impressive. 4.5 million new jobs created just in the last two years. and the unemployment rate at a nearly 50 year low. paychecks are growing at their fastest rate in more than a decade, and today, more mississippians are working than ever before in the history of this great state.
and the truth is, under the leadership of president donald trump, jobs are back. confidence is back. in a word, america is back, and we are just getting started, mississippi. that's why we need cindy hyde-smith back in the united states senate. cindy hyde-smith is a rocksolid conservative with a proven record, forged right here in mississippi and in our nations capital. she has been there every time we needed her and supported this president's agenda every step of the way. [applause] cindy stood with us to make the strongest military in the history of the world stronger still. she stood with us to pass the most important veteran reform in a decade, and cindy hyde-smith stood strong for fairness and
due process when she voted to confirm justice brett kavanaugh to the supreme court of the united states. [applause] cindy hyde-smith is pro-military, pro-law enforcement, pro-jobs. and cindy hyde-smith stands without apology for the right to live and the second amendment right to keep and bear arms. she is a strong and principled conservative. which is a lot more than you can say about her opponent. him and as a member of congress, you as a member of congress, mike espy repeatedly voted to raise taxes. he opposes building a wall on our southern border and as a member of congress, he has cosponsored legislation to allow abortion on demand and even supported use of taxpayer
dollars to pay for abortions. mike espy is too liberal for mississippi. that's why mississippi needs to send cindy hyde-smith back to the united states senate. [applause] the choice tomorrow could not be more clear. it's a choice between tax hikes and tax cuts. the choice between open borders and secure borders. really, it's a choice between resistance and results. in president trump and i need mississippi to vote for more results. we need mississippi to send cindy hyde-smith back to washington, d c. [applause] but we need your help to do it. the polls are going to open in just a few hours and then it will be your decision to make. but i've got a good feeling
about it. the truth is, on election night, we made history when we reelected the republican majority in the u.s. senate, and tomorrow we need mississippi to make history again when you send cindy hyde-smith back to an even larger republican majority in the u.s. senate. [applause] when you do that, mississippi, i will make you a promise. with cindy hyde-smith back in the united states senate, with governor phil bryant at the statehouse, president donald trump in the white house, and with god's help, we will make mississippi and america safer and more prosperous than ever before.
that beautiful snow looks so real. that's the end of my here tonight, that's ok. i love mississippi and i love being with you. thank you very much. it's a beautiful place. this is a big, beautiful arena and there are thousands of people outside and this place is packed. there's nothing like a trump rally. [applause] i'm thrilled to be here with the great people of mississippi. you are the men and women that make america truly great, and thank you. [applause] tomorrow we need the people of
mississippi to go to the polls and elect cindy hyde-smith, so that we can continue doing what we are doing, which is, frankly, unprecedented, what is happening is unprecedented. [applause] look, the simple two words, it's called america first. america first. [applause] it's about time. under republican leadership, america is winning again. america is respected again. we are respected like at no time before, and i can tell you, i'm meeting constantly with foreign leaders and they walk in and they say, mr. president, it is incredible what has happened with your country in such a short time. america is respected again. [applause]
we have unleashed the greatest economic comeback in american history. more americans are working today than ever before. think of that, today, right now, or americans are working in our thing. than at any time before. that's a big thing. we've created 4.5
million new jobs and we have lifted 4.3 million americans off of food stamps. [applause] the unemployment rate just hit the lowest level in more than 50 years, and here in mississippi, the unemployment rate has hit its lowest level of all time. [applause] congratulations, mississippi. african-american unemployment
has reached the lowest rate ever recorded. african-american youth unemployment has reached the lowest rate ever recorded. and african-american poverty is at an all-time low. [applause] remember what i used to say, what the hell do you have to lose, right? [applause] well, we have produced, and we will continue to produce. republicans passed a massive tax cut for mississippi families. we eliminated a record number of job killing regulations, and american is now the number one producer of energy on the planet earth. not even close. [applause] and that took place pretty quickly, didn't it?
we are taking care of our veterans and our military will soon be more powerful than it has ever been before. [applause] and because of that incredible power, hopefully we will never have to use it, right? but to protect these amazing achievements, mississippi must defend our senate republican majority. we had a fantastic evening and day very recently, the midterms. we got very little credit from the fake news media. they talked about the house, but the people i campaigned for in the house, which was very few, i am one person. but the people i campaign, like in kentucky and so many others
that won, the governor of georgia, the governor of florida, governor of ohio, tennessee, great new senator from tennessee. indiana, north dakota, missouri, florida. and many, many others. we got very little credit, but if we win tomorrow, we go 53-47, and nobody can believe it. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: 53-47, they are not happy. the fake news is not happy about those numbers. but that gives us very much of a
breather, and for those of you that study politics, when the sitting president picks up eight seats, let alone like we've done, that's considered a big deal, for whatever reason. but i used to say, i think it's going to happen. and i have to tell you, we have three seats, even for seats that were so close, we almost won in areas that a lot of people say don't bother contesting. we almost won in four states that a lot of people said don't bother, you can't win. i said, let's give it a shot. and i will tell you, a little tricky business going on, but let's give them the benefit of the doubt, right? if you let nancy pelosi, maxine waters and chuck schumer when
the mississippi senate seat, they will try to erase all of our gains, reverse all of our progress, and you know this, they want to impose their extreme job killing agenda, and i just said, you just set your all-time record in mississippi for jobs. it can disappear quickly with the wrong leadership. we don't want that to happen. so if you want more jobs, strong borders -- how are we doing on the borders? [applause] then you only have one choice tomorrow. you must vote republican. we are honored tonight to be joined by several really terrific mississippi republican leaders. we will start with a friend of mine, he has been so incredible.
seven months ago he took me around to see things and then he showed me something that he is maybe the most proud of, the african american museum. phil bryant put his guts and his life and his blood into it. number one, it's doing fantastically, but number two, i loved it, and he did a fantastic job. he is a great governor, phil bryant. where is phil? come here, phil. come on up here, phil. we have to get him up here, right? [applause] great governor. >> thank you so much. are we having a great night tonight? [applause] are we proud to have donald j.
trump in the house? you are here, he is here to help elect cindy hyde-smith and make america great again. [applause] god bless you, mr. president. pres. trump: thanks, phil. thank you, phil. great job. lieutenant governor reeves. where is our lieutenant governor, where is he? thank you. a man who has been spectacular, the job he has done. everyone is talking about it. u.s. attorney mike hearst. thank you, mike. a very good friend of mine, he is always there, he is always available, and he's very smart. he loves the people of mississippi. he loves the people of our country. senator roger wicker.
roger. thank you, roger. great job. and a man that did so well recently, it will go down for a long time, you're going to be seeing those words. they were beautiful words, and they were needed very desperately at that time. brett kavanaugh was being treated very unfairly, very, very unfairly. and lindsey graham got up and he hit a chord that you hit very rarely in the world of politics or anything else. the meaning of what he said really changed the course of that event, and now we have a great, great supreme court justice, brett kavanaugh. lindsey graham. thank you. thank you, lindsay.
he really did, that was very special. we are all here tonight to support an amazing leader and a tremendous champion for this great state, a woman who went to washington. she has been there now for a short time as your senator, but she is respected by all. some long-term senators have been down there, they told me this is a woman that gets it. she is smart, she is tough, and she loves you. cindy hyde-smith, we have to get her in. come up, cindy. [applause] cindy is working every day to rebuild our military, to fix our trade deals, and to deliver for our workers and our farmers and the families of businesses. she produces like few produce.
this is a very, very special person. cindy defied the democrat smear campaign by proudly promoting supreme court justice brett kavanaugh. her vote was so important. we just want to thank cindy hyde-smith. you've got to go out tomorrow and vote. we need her badly. thank you, cindy. cindy: thank you, mr. president. i'll tell you isn't it great to , have the president of the united states here in mississippi? [applause] what a great crowd we have tonight for you. you know in the beginning, i said, this campaign, this election is not about me. it's about the people of mississippi. it's about what you believe in and what you care about.
lower taxes, less regulation, supporting our military, supporting our veterans, supporting our law enforcement. protecting the life of the unborn. [applause] yes it is about standing firm on , the second amendment rights all day long. [applause] you know, i think that i have given you one reason why i can ask for your vote tonight. that's because i have worked very hard for you, and you can count on me when it comes to your conservative values. [applause] you know, other than being the wife to michael and a mother, this is the highest honor of my earthly life, serving as your u.s. senator. i want you to know i have so
much gratitude for governor phil bryant for appointing me. thank you, governor. [applause] tomorrow is very important. there is so much at stake. it is such a political election tomorrow. we have got to go out. what is on the ballot tomorrow is not just my name, cindy hyde-smith. it is your conservative values. that is what is on the ballot tomorrow. [applause] i asked every mississippian to please contact everybody, contact your friends, your relatives, your coworkers. remind everybody tomorrow is election day, folks. we've got to get out and vote tomorrow. [applause] thank you for this opportunity, and i want to continue to serve you as your united states
senator. thank you so much, mississippi. [applause] pres. trump: get out tomorrow and vote for cindy. she will never let you down. the future of the american judicial system is at the center of tomorrow's election. so important. it's a choice between judges who follow the rule of law and judges who follow the radical resistance. that's what it is. obstructionists. cindy's opponent, mike espy opposed brett kavanaugh. he is not had a great career, folks. check it out. democrats want activist judges who will rewrite our laws,
undermine our democracy, and substitute their own far left politics for the plane and beautiful meaning of our constitution. that's what they want to do. a vote for espy is a vote for the democrat agenda of socialism and open borders. espy supported one of the largest tax increases, you know this, in american history. he cosponsored legislation providing late-term abortion on demand, and he sponsored legislation to provide free government health care to illegal aliens at your expense. congratulations, mississippi. mississippi deserves a senator who shares your values and will fight for your values, and that senator is cindy hyde-smith. [applause]
also at stake in tomorrow's election or your medicare benefits. that is a big deal. democrats want to raid medicare to find socialism. -- to fund socialism. it won't last long. republicans will protect medicare for our great seniors who have earned it, and by the way, who have paid for it, just in case we forget. and republicans will always protect americans with pre-existing conditions. democrats
will also destroy your health care by inviting caravan after caravan after caravan of illegal aliens to violate our borders, overwhelming our communities, and bankrupting our treasury. you look at what is happening on our border and you see people
coming up by the thousands. and frankly, if we didn't show them strength and a strong border, and nobody has shown a stronger border. if we didn't do that, you would have hundreds of thousands of people pouring into our country. we are doing a job, and we will continue to do a job. we are doing what is right. [applause] so the wall has started, very substantially. you saw the other day the wall stopped everybody and it was only the section that is now under construction. they breached it, but only momentarily.
it didn't take long. it was called a momentary breach. how good is border enforcement, ice our border patrol, our local , police? and our military doing? [applause] and you see what our military has already done to existing walls. they made them very unfriendly looking, wouldn't you say? climbing those walls would be a very painful experience right now. republicans are committed to halting this incursion and defending the sovereign borders of the united states. we are sending a simple message to the lawless caravans and the illegal trespassers marching forward. it's very simple, turn back now, go back home.
we will not let you in. we are not going to let you in. turn back now. [applause] illegal immigration is also deeply unfair to american workers, including african-american workers. people don't realize what happens. my administration will always put the citizens of our country first. the policies of open borders are a threat to every community. since i took office, ice agents have arrested over 235,000 aliens with criminal records. can you believe it? 235,000. that is a lot. and by the way, they want to get rid of ice, can you believe it? these are tough, strong, brilliant people that also happen to love our country.
and i don't want that job, and you don't want it. and you don't want it. and you don't want it. and you might take it right there. he might. this guy, i think you can qualify. it's those charged with 100 assaults and nearly 4000 murders. we are getting ms 13 out. we are taking them out by the thousands and shipping them the hell out of here. we are getting them out. in the state of texas alone, according to the texas department of public safety, between 2011 and 2018, more than 663,000 crimes were committed by illegal immigrants.
you know, you hear the stories about, they don't commit crimes. we commit crimes, they don't commit crimes. no, no, it doesn't work that way. it's fake news. [applause] just recently, an illegal alien released by a sanctuary city in new jersey was charged with a triple homicide in another state. in just one operation alone, our ice officers arrested 355 him 13 -- ms gang members on long 13 island and in a new york city area. [applause] of those, nearly half were present in the country because they took advantage of the democrat backed loophole granting entry to unaccompanied alien minors. welcome to the united states. yet democrats want to abolish
ice. they want to turn america into one giant sanctuary city for violent criminals and ms 13 and other gang killers. no, thank you. republicans believe america should be a sanctuary for law-abiding citizens, not criminal aliens. [applause] every single day, we are finding the illegal alien gang members and predators and throwing them the hell out of here, putting them in jail, or just plain getting them out of our country as nicely as possible. tomorrow's election is about safety, and tomorrow's election is about prosperity. for decades, washington politicians allowed foreign countries to plunder our jobs, shutter our factories, it and
decimate our industries. i've been talking about it for 20 years. when i was in the private sector -- i cannot believe i'm not in the private sector. now they call me a politician. i'm a politician, i can't stand it. they said he is a political person. but i've only had one race, and look at the result. here we are. and we are only going to have one more race, and hopefully that result will be even better, because we have produced. [applause] trillions of dollars were ripped from our nation and redistributed all across the globe. we have distributed money and we have distributed our wealth. it has been ripped away from us, it's been taken and given to china and japan and south korea
and given to south america and to every body all over the world. it has been given to everybody but us. we've racked up $4.5 trillion in trade deficits with china since they entered the wto. that's the wto, which other than nafta is probably the worst trade deal any country has ever entered, and we entered it, and that's what built china into the power, but now we are the big power. we are far more powerful, and that's the way we are going to keep it. [applause] we had an annual trade deficit -- >> usa. usa. usa.
pres. trump: we had an annual trade deficit -- listen to this. who made these deals? who made them? almost $800 billion the gear we billion a year we lose. we are stopping that. we just made a great new deal with canada, with mexico. but of course, they have to treat us fairly. otherwise we just tax their product when it comes in. you know that, you know what i'm talking about. entire nations were revealed at the expense of america's middle -- entire nations were rebuilt at the expense of america's middle class, and frankly, at the expense of america's business. this massive transfer of wealth represented the greatest jobs theft in the history of the world. and you know what, i don't blame china, and i don't blame these
other countries. i blame the leaders of the united states that allowed this to happen. why shouldn't the other countries try and make these rate deals that they have made? i told president xi, it's over, but i don't blame you at all. i wish we had people that did we the same thing in reverse, but we didn't have those people, unfortunately. are here in mississippi, you lost four out of 10 manufacturing jobs in the last 20 years alone. you those days are over. that's why you are doing so well now, and you do have a great, great governor, i have to say. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: america's economic surrender ended the day that i took the oath of office.
it ended. and you know what, it really was, through stupidity, it was an economic surrender. economic surrender. why we allowed it to happen, how we allowed it to happen, why these politicians didn't do their job, it's a disgrace. so we are not going to be taken advantage of any more. under my administration, we have created 600,000 brand-new manufacturing jobs that people said could never come back to our country. [applause] remember the previous administration? remember the previous administration -- said manufacturing jobs, that will never happen. i kept saying, what's he talking about? manufacturing jobs they said would never come back. we've got to make things. you would need a magic wand. well, we found the magic want. -- the magic wand. [applause] and they are great jobs. they are high-paying, brilliant,
important jobs. look at what has happened to our steel industry. a year ago it was dead, and now it's one of the most vibrant anywhere in the world, because we stopped the steel dumping and we put a big tax on. they can dump all they want. they pay 25% on everything they dump, and our industry has come back. we have steel mills being built all over the country. nobody saw anything like it ever before. although 50 years ago, they did well, but for many, many years, nobody has seen anything like it. last month alone we added more than 1000 manufacturing jobs each and every day. last month. we are cracking down countries and cracking down on countries that unfairly subsidized their goods and dump them into our markets like they were doing.
they can dump all they want. i want them to dump a lot. and you need structural steel and other kinds of great steel, you don't want to buy that dumped crap, you want quality stuff. but we are making a lot of money. they are paying a lot. it's ok, dump all you want, you're going to pay a lot. that money is flowing right into our treasury, and so are the jobs. we are replacing the nafta disaster with a brand-new u.s.-mexico-canada agreement. it's called the u.s. mca. like the song ymca. it is a tremendous victory for mississippi farmers, manufacturers, and autoworkers.
tremendous. one of the things in that deal, you are not going to have companies moving to mexico and canada. i told him that is one thing we cannot do. it's not going to happen under that deal. no incentive to move, non-whatsoever. after years of rebuilding foreign countries, we are finally rebuilding our country, and we are doing it with american aluminum and american steel. [applause] we have taken bold action to reduce the cost of prescription drugs. drug prices are starting to come down. drug companies, a number of months ago, were going to raise their prices. i called up the head of pfizer, novartis, and others. i said you can't do that. you can't raise their prices. and you know what they did? they brought them down, they didn't raise them.
and that's when i realized being the president of the united states is a very powerful position. [applause] of course, i guarantee any other president would not be calling up the drug companies and telling them not to raise their price. right here in mississippi, we have opened up new affordable health care plans that are almost 60% cheaper than the disaster known as obama care. [applause] and to help critically ill patients get life-saving treatments, we passed something that i'm very proud of. it's called right to try. hopefully nobody is going to need it for a long time, but right to try, we have the greatest medicines and doctors in the world, and we never let anybody touch it until it was approved. it would take many years to get it approved. these people in many cases are terminally ill. what we did is we made it possible for them to have it.
you all know friends, if they had no money, they would stay home. if they had money, they would go to asia, south america, or your. we have some incredible drugs -- and potential viewers in the pipeline. now they sign a quick paper and they have the right to try. we have had unbelievable success with some of these drugs. [applause] it sounds simple, but years and years they have tried to pass it and they never got it passed. we also passed veterans choice, giving our great veterans the right to see private doctor instead of waiting in line for two weeks, six weeks, eight weeks, forever. in the landmark ba -- va accountability law to ensure anyone who mistreat the great veterans will be accountable, we will look at
them and say, get the hell out of here, you are fired, get out. these are a lot of the things we have passed. i could go on. i have a list that's four pages long. but i don't want to bore you. we could go point after point after point. this has never happened. nobody has ever done so much in the first two years of a presidency than this administration. nobody. nobody. we also just secured $716 billion to fully rebuild the
u.s. military, and we gave our great warriors their largest pay raise in more than 10 years. [applause] and at my direction, the pentagon is now working to create the sixth branch of the american armed forces. it is called the space force.
very important. [applause] very, very important. i withdrew the united states from the horrible one-sided iran nuclear deal, which was a disaster. and we have recognized the capital of israel and opened the american embassy in jerusalem. together, we have made unbelievable progress and we are just getting started. but we need every last republican vote in the u.s. senate. we need 53. we want to get to that 53 number. they don't believe it, but they don't want to talk about it, but that is ok. we have to get 53, 47. that will be a wonderful, wonderful day. so tomorrow is a big day. [applause] only with a strong senate gop majority can we defend your tax cuts, defend your second
amendment, protect your medicare, and social security, and confirm judges who will interpret the constitution exactly as written. with your support, we will fight every day to secure the border, stop illegal immigration, pass case laws, end sanctuary cities, end chain migration, cancel the ridiculous visa lottery, and keep the criminal drug dealers and terrorists of the hell out of our country. [applause] we will lift millions more of our citizens from welfare to work, dependence to independence, and poverty to prosperity. for years and years you watched as your leaders apologized for america. now you have a president who is standing up for america.
and proud of america. [applause] we are standing up for your values. we are standing up for mississippi. we are proudly standing up for our great national anthem. [applause] so i am asking every citizen from every party, community, background, race, color, creed, religion, for your support tomorrow. cindy hyde-smith. [applause] i need the great people of mississippi to send a message to crying chuck schumer, nancy pelosi, maxine waters, by electing cindy. we want cindy tomorrow. this is the greatest political movement in the history of our country.
it is. it is. i say it often, they never even challenge me. they challenge things, they challenge everything, every word you say. but this is the greatest political movement in the history of our country. nothing like this has ever happened. and you still have deep states. but one by one we are getting them out. you have deep state of bad people. a lot of phony stuff going on. but one by one we are winning. we are winning, winning, winning. now, there has never been a movement like this. it is a movement about getting government to answer to the people. it is about reclaiming america's dignity and reawakening america's pride.
it is about building a brighter future for every man, woman and child all across this magnificent land. it is about respecting our country. and it is about coming together as one united american family. [applause] we stand on the shoulders of courageous american patriots who secured our independence, built the railroads, built the highways, dug out the great panama canal. we won two world wars and put men into space and landed an american astronaut on the face of the moon. and today landed an american rocket on mars. [applause] our ancestors vanquished communism, delivered millions
into freedom, and built the single greatest country and the most powerful military in the history of the world. we are americans, and there is no mountain we can't climb, no obstacle we can't reach, and no dream we cannot achieve. generations of brave americans did not shed their blood, sweat, and tears so we could it home -- sit home while others try to erase their legacy and destroy are very proud american heritage. [applause] for the sake of our freedom, and for the sake of our children, we are going to work, we are going to fight, and we are going to win, win, win, win. [crowd chanting "win"]
we will not bend. we will not break. we will not yield. we will never give in. we will never give up. we will never back down. we will never surrender. and we will always fight on to victory. [applause] we are one people, and one nation, and one glorious american destiny. we all cherish the same home. -- we all share the same home. we all share the same heart. we also look the same flag. -- we all salute the same flag. and we are all made by the same almighty god. [applause] and together with the incredible people of mississippi, we will make america wealthy again.
