its own weight and has failed. this is a security just fun goes in 15 years. take it to his set up. any party. bring it is an embarrassment for you. let's be clear though. the democrats have had the opportunity to prove what they believe then, this top-down control will work. they failed every time. one of these programs has been a whopping success. great news in fact. is -- trump's president of the united states of america. [applause]

if you met -- you were not told that. president trump is an outsider to. -- outsider. the most important thing is to keep his promises to him. he had a list. he is meeting his promises and doing exactly what he said he would do. [applause] >> is redoing the military after eight years. how long did it take for an american president to stand up? president trump is fighting for a level playing field with all of our partners, including the people of the republic of china. [applause]
>> president trump has made it clear america comes first. america first does not mean america alone. he is rebuilding all of our ally relationships. he is getting our map -- nato allies to pay their fair share for their own defense. obamacare is an individual mandate. guys, i am proud of this. in 1991, covers had a law on the books that required a president. -- he moved the united states embassy from tel aviv to israel. [applause]
>> he said he would drain the swamp. remember that? guess what? 4300 people have been removed but not during a job. 4000, 300 people. they were not done. we are going to hire agencies to do the same thing. i am a business guy but if you ran the rest of the world are washington is now, we would not be where we are today. the thing that has most impact be kids and kids kids. with president trump, we can judges and the scope supreme court judges, including morris part and greg kavanaugh -- brett kavanaugh.
i have seen -- change the direction of the country. get it done. promises made and kept. now the focus is on trade and infrastructure. early in the morning. he calls later tonight. i spent time at the white house. works and he cares about america. isn't it great to have somebody in the white house who focuses on getting it done? most proud of.am he will never articulated this way.
what we believe in actually works. had 100crats have years. they failed every time. we have done it in two years. we are proving that what we believe in works. he is returning to the principles that made america great and made this economic miracle in history and economic opportunity for everybody. personal responsibility, limited government. individual liberty, something we cannot take for granted. look at the national news. the democrats are on a mission. this is obstructionism on a historic level. look at last night. i have never seen 20 people, 10 people, more out of touch with reality in my life.
we have to wake up to this. i never thought i would stand here, but a have to say this. our way of life is in jeopardy. i never thought i would talk about capitalism versus socialism. i did not ask for this fight but i am up for it. if we do not do it now, when will we do it? radical democrats are telling the world, i read your book. they believe socialism is better than capitalism. they are talking about is bad. they believe in the single party system. they believe in "are's. they -- open borders. they believe in infanticide. have you ever heard of a party condone that? they have a right to vote. wage tot to give a
anyone unwilling to work. they want socialized medicine that has spared -- failed everywhere in the world, including bernie sanders states. they want the green new deal. these are not minor changes. these are radical proposals that would bring socialism to the united states. why? they cannot talk about the results. they cannot talk about the big programs. they have to talk about a new way. we have got a good way. it has been proven if you would pay attention. if the democrats win the white -- to a onewill political system. they are saying they would and the united states senate that would allow them to do things. they want at things to the supreme court.
make -- this is what they are saying. democrats will do all this so they can cram their social agenda down the throats of the american people. [applause] they want a single party system in america just like russia did in 1917 and venezuela and the 20th century. how did that work? really? each of these events were state-controlled. i cannot let this radical left take that road down to socialism. the only thing standing in our way is you and me. i am thankful you come to things like this because that is how we
stand up. this is bigger than me. this is about the future of our country in the future of our children and our children's children. [applause] [applause] >> remember the price of socialism is freedom. the price of socialism is freedom. you have to make sure our kids and kids kids and everybody we know, the price of socialism is freedom. listen to what ronald reagan said. freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. has got to be protected and passed on so they can do the same thing monday. once like in america
when women and men were free. that cannot happen. what i have to insert socialism never comes to america. god bless you. thank you for being here. god bless america. thank you.
