tv Campaign 2020 Mike Bloomberg Delivers Post- Primary Remarks in West Palm... CSPAN March 4, 2020 12:08am-12:26am EST
thank you all for coming. my wife and i were just going to send home tonight. she has her home, i have mine. watch a little television. have a drink or two. -- judy and i were just going to send home tonight. she has her home, i have mine. watch a little television. have a drink or two. i want to thank judge judy. isn't she amazing? [cheers and applause] and also a big thanks to all the elected officials in florida supporting our campaign. including the mayor and congress members ted deutch and stephanie murphy. let's hear it for them. it is great to be here in this beautiful state. i know you are not used to seeing a new yorker in southern florida in late winter. [laughter] but unlike the president, i did not come here to golf. [cheers and applause] or to reveal classified information to mar-a-lago members.
[laughter] [cheers] i came here because winning a november -- in november starts with florida. [cheers and applause] and if i'm the nominee, let me make you this promise. we will beat donald trump here in florida and in swing states around the country. [cheers and applause] now tonight, the polls are still open in a number of super tuesday states. and as the results come in, here is what is clear. no matter how many delegates we win tonight, we have done something no one else thought was possible. in just three months, we have gone from 1% of the polls to being a contender for the democratic nomination for president. [cheers and applause]
enthusiasm, they don't lack. [laughter] all across america i have been talking with voters. and my message is simple. i am running to beat donald trump. [cheers and applause] and to start rebuilding our country and to start getting things done. [cheers and applause] and i mean big, important things, like stopping gun violence. [cheers and applause] and fighting climate change. [cheers and applause] and finally, achieving affordable health coverage for all americans. [cheers and applause] this is a campaign for change. a campaign for sanity. for honesty. a campaign for inclusion, compassion, competence. and a campaign for human decency.
[cheers and applause] and this is a campaign to bring our country back together. and put the united act in the back inut the united the united states of america. [cheers and applause] that is the message i have been delivering not only to democrats, but swing voters who actually decide who will be our next resident. [cheers and applause] and tonight, we proved something very important. we proved we can win the voters who will decide the general election. and isn't that what this is all about? while my fellow candidates spent a year focusing on the first four states, i was campaigning against donald trump in the states where the election will actually be decided, like wisconsin, and michigan, and
pittsburgh, and north carolina and of course, florida. president obama proved a democrat can win all of those states. but in 2016, we lost them all. well, i am running to win them back. [cheers and applause] and together, we are going to get it done. [cheers and applause] now, we all know trump's strategy. attack democrats, make their plans look unrealistic, unaffordable, and undoable. that won't work against us. our plans are sensible, workable and achievable. and we have the record and the resources to defeat trump in swing states that the democrats lost in 2016, like florida. [cheers and applause] i know we can do it. and you know who else knows it? donald trump. [cheers and applause] and that is why he keeps attacking us on twitter.
today, he sent a tweet out urging people not to vote for us. gee, i wonder why? [laughter] clearly, trump is scared stiff of facing us, and for good reason. in every campaign i ran for mayor, we built a broad coalition that brought democrats and independents and moderate republicans together. donald trump the other day called me short. i said, donald, where i come from, we measure people from the neck up. [cheers and applause] that is how we are going to beat donald trump. i believe we need a leader who is ready to be commander in chief, not college debater in chief. so if you want someone who talks turkey and has a record of a college -- of accomplishment on
all the big issues facing our country, and who has the resources to beat trump, i am your guy. [cheers and applause] and while trump tweets, i follow facts, respect data, and tell the truth. my whole career, i have been a doer. and i believe we need less talk, less partisanship, less division, less tweeting. [cheers and applause] in fact, how about no tweeting from the oval office ever again? [cheers and applause] now you've probably heard our will getslogan, "mike it done." let me tell you what it is. the it means winning in november and sending donald trump back to mar-a-lago permanently. [cheers and applause] but that is just the beginning. because getting it done means
finally providing health insurance for every american who lacks it. [cheers and applause] getting it done means passing common sense gun safety laws to protect our children and communities. [cheers and applause] getting it done means making america a global leader in the fight against climate change. [cheers and applause] getting it done means creating good jobs with higher wages. [cheers and applause] getting it done means addressing discrimination and inequality. [cheers and applause] getting it done means creating a citizenship path to and finally fixing our broken immigration system. [cheers and applause] and getting it done means protecting a woman's right to choose. [cheers and applause]
our campaign is a fight for america's ideals and values. it's a fight to build a better future for everyone. not to bring back a past that left so many out. it's a fight we cannot afford to lose. so i need your help, and i need your vote. and when you talk to your friends and families, tell them, if you want quality health insurance for everyone, not just empty promises, if you want to combat inequality with fairer taxes and better jobs, if you support my commitment to public education no matter what zip code you live in, if you share my belief for opportunity for all and not just a few, if you're ready to protect and defend the constitution of the united states of america. [cheers and applause] and if you are ready to clean out the oval office and get things done.
