the airport high school. we learned that lesson. there he is. long awaited. and i'm sure much appreciated by all the folks there. flying through the storm. and getting ready to give his address to the rally of these folks in west columbia, south carolina. [♪] [cheers and applause] president trump: hello, everyone. hi. hi, everybody. hello, everybody. it was a little rocky up in the
sky tonight. i have to tell you. they said, sir, would you mind going back? would you mind if we didn't stop? i said there is no way we cannot stop. right? we are not going to do that for a man named henry mcmaster. we are not going to do it. i wouldn't have the courage to call henry. henry, i said i was coming, but i'm only kidding. it's raining out real bad and i am not showing up. i wouldn't do it to you. thank you very much, everybody. and also it is air force one. doesn't this go through? and it does. it is great to be with you. it's a very special state. i love this state with so many
incredible hard working american patriots. before we begin, let's all take a moment to send our love to katie arrington who was badly hurt in a terrible car accident, and somebody going the wrong way and katie really badly hurt along with a friend of hers. and somebody else killed, frankly in the other car. and katie is a very special person. she was out there right from the beginning. here is the good news. she is going to be 100%. so katie, we are all pulling for you, and we are praying for your swift recovery. she is going to be back very soon. and she was with us. she was out there campaigning against the guy i have never
liked too much. never liked him too much. i wasn't a big fan. the tallahassee trail. it must be a beautiful place. unfortunately, he didn't go there. so i want to thank all of our south carolina gop leaders in attendance. we have a man who has become a friend of mine. it's shocking, isn't it? he said i will defeat him in south carolina. i said i don't think so. i don't think so. but i'll tell you what, he has become a friend, and he's a good man. lindsey graham. that's pretty good, i think,
lindsey. that's pretty good. he's been great. congressman joe wilson and tom rice. [cheers and applause] south carolina attorney general, a very close personal relationship, joe allen wilson. good job,a, allen. secretary of state mark hammond. thank you, mark. and candidate for lieutenant governor pamela evans.
pamela. finally the person we are all here for today, a man who truly was with me from the beginning, there was no doubt about it, he was there right from the beginning. we won the state of south carolina by a lot. [cheers and applause] both in the primaries and in the general elect. we won. and we had to run the whole east coast and we got south carolina and north carolina. we love north carolina. we got pennsylvania and florida. we started off that night, donald trump has won the state of florida. right? and they go, whoa! , whoa! they just last florida. you know what they said? don't worry about it. they said north carolina is the
fire wall. south carolina we have no chance. but north carolina. so we won south carolina, thank you very much. and the fire wall wasn't much of a fire wall in north carolina. so i want to thank the incredible people of south carolina for everything you have done. and right from day one when i came down here, henry mcmaster, i said why are you with me? he said i like what you say. we need strong borders. we are talking about it now. [cheers and applause] [crowd chants "build that wall"]
so he said, we need strong borders. we have to stop crime. we want lower taxes. we love our military, we love our vets, and we love our second amendment. other than that, i don't know what he said. i don't know what else he told me. but that was enough. and he was sort of just like this handsome guy with a wonderful wife. peggy. where's peggy? so henry was for me from the beginning. there was nobody else. it wasn't like i supported trump. i supported trump very early. right, after 7 other people. after the defeat of 9 people. they were with me. and they never let you forget it. but henley was there at the beginning.
he's a fighter, he's tough, he's strong. and he's a gentleman. the thing with henry, because i got to know him. i'll tell you what. he was up early in the morning, he left late at night. i said you are a fighter. beautiful thing with henry is you don't even know it. he does it in an elegant manner. but he's a fighter. he's been here with us and henry i would like to ask you to come on up. this has been an interesting voyage. i have never taken a longer trip ever to south carolina. >> thank you, mr. president. south carolina loves donald trump. we were out at the airport waiting and watching the forces of nature. lightning and there was the
thunder and the storm and the rain. and then it cleared and air force one landed and the real force of nature got off the plane and stepped into south carolina. [cheers and applause] donald trump kepter promise that he made. we love him. we follow him. he's going to make america great again, and we'll help him do it right here in south carolina. thank you so much! president trump: thank you, henry. now, you know we have a lot of fake news back there. and you know that if a horrible thing happens, and we weren't lucky enough to have henry win, you know they won't talk about. they will say donald trump
suffered a major, major defeat in the great state of south carolina. it was a humiliating defeat for donald trump. so please get your asses out tomorrow and vote! [cheers and applause] you have got to get out there and vote. and honestly not for that reason. he's a great man. he's a wonderful person. he loves the people of south carolina and loves the people of our country. you have got a good man or believe me i wouldn't be here. you know, the last time i endorsed somebody was katie. and i was in singapore. there was a massive difference in time. i said we have a situation
that's very interesting. i'm turning on the television and i see the race. i said what time is it? they said sir, it's almost 4:00. so, i have got to endorse katie. how many hours are left? they said like 3 1/2. i said maybe i shouldn't do it because i won't have enough. what happened, i did. i said i don't care. i can't stand that guy. i don't care. i don't care. and i like her. she was another one right from the beginning. she didn't talk about other people. so i said okay. we had 3 hours, 3 1/2 hours left. i'm lifting off from singapore. far away. a 22-hour flight. that's not even fun on air force one. when are we landing, we are almost there, 7 hours. when they tell you you are almost there, you only have 7 hours left. and we had a great success.
north korea. chairman kim. great. great. [cheers and applause] we are not looking up in the air. any rockets up there? japan is very happy. they haven't had a rocket shot or them in 7 months. there has been no rocket test. there has been no nuclear test. there has been no ballistic this this -- sites. look at all those fake newsers back there. that's a lot. that's a lot of people. that's a lot of people. and you want to see a lot of people, go outside this gymnasium. i said henry, i don't work gymnasiums anymore he said please. go outside and take a look outside. you won't believe what's going
on out there. see you people understand real estate well. but we have a call. i had numerous calls with prime minister abe. so happy for the people of japan. happy for the peoplef china. happy for the people especially of south korea. and we are happy. and we did something that was wonderful. and the world is soon going to be -- right now it is already, when have good chemistry -- but the world is going to be a much safer place, and north korea will be a much better place. really something. [cheers and applause] and they agreed to denuclearization. they agreed to no more testing, no more this. we got our hostages back. got our hostages. i got them back even before we left. we are getting the remains of
our great heroes back. [cheers and applause] and when i first made the announcement that we are getting together, this was five, six months ago. it was in the oval soofs. these guys were saying unbelievable, unbelievable, do you believe this? remember they came over from south korea. the olympics. it started with the olympics. when chairman kim said we want to go to the olympics. i said that's nice. it's a big difference from the dialogue we were having. en the olympics would have been a massive failure and it turned out to be a massive success. and president moon of south korea gives us the credit. people did not want to be nuked in the stadium as they watched the opening ceremony. they didn't want to be watching the opening ceremonies at the
same time look u at the skies, how long will this last. they weren't selling tickets. the minute it happened. the minute that happened the olympics became a fantastic success. it was a great olympics. and we now have a good chemistry. and i think it's going to work out. it takes a while. not easy. not easy. they have been doing this for many many decades. not that easy. but they took down signs, anti-united states signs all over north korea. they are down. they came down. anti-u.s. signs. like i put up anti-media signs all over the place.
[crowd booing] >> you are worse than i am. no, we want honesty. we just want fairness. we don't get much of it. so we make the deal. and we signed a piece of paper. it was a beautiful piece of paper. it said we'll denuke, we'll get the remains back. a lot of things. we'll not test. we'll abandon our -- they have an engine site -- these are not engines for your car, these are engines for ballistic missiles. they are going to rip that down. we'll denuclearize north korea. you know what the fake news said? donald trump has suffered a humiliating defeat because i agreed to meet. because i agreed to meet, they couldn't think anything else, so
i will say this, at the beginning they couldn't believe it was happening. two days later they were saying hillary clinton could have done that. i don't think so. [crowd chants "lock her up"] did you ever see anybody so protected in your life? point after point after point. and i did nothing. it never end. never end. no collusion, no nothing. but you go -- after the election, i said let's go, who cares. we have to make america great
again. and then she writes a book and does the tour. how many reasons did she give for losing the election? he week it was a different reason. right? she blamed everybody for losing the elect except for one person. herself. and you know the funny thing is, lindsey was just telling me, they would have lost. but i won. to win all up and count east coast. to win wisconsin which hasn't been won in many years, like 1972. to win membership began which hasn't been won in a long type. and they say she was a bad candidate. she was a tough candidate. she wasn't a bad candidate. but they refused to say i was a
good candidate. it's interesting. sometimes you have to toot your own horn because nobody is is going to do it. certainly they are not going to do it. certainly they are not going to do it. sometimes you have to do it, right? that's why when the polls are good, you remember during the campaign, when the polls were good i would always talk about it. when they weren't, i didn't talk about it. but for a lot of time they were good. georgetown steel just opened their plant yesterday. they are spending a lot of money after many years of being closed. georgetown steel in south carolina. here is a story that just came out. david lynch, the great filmmaker, he puts down headline, trump could go down -- this is a hollywood guy. the reason i do this, you don't
hear this. plenty of them voted for me. david lynch could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history. there goes his career in hollywood. veteran filmmaker david lynch believes president trump could be remembered as one of the great hest presidents in american history because the way he has shaken up the political establishment and what he has done. but however he now appears to believe, he actually voted for obama. and here it says he voted for bernie sanders. but he now says however, he now appears to believe that trump may have been the right choice after all. cheers he goes on to say trump could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history
because he has disrupted this thing so much, no one has been able to counter this guy in an intelligent way. by the way, you know, they call them elites. you know what you are? you are the super elites. i'm changing titles. i'm changing. no, no. look, everybody here makes money, works hard, pays taxes. does a great job. you are smarter, you are better, you are more loyal. we have the greatest base in the history of politics. we do. they interviewed 10 women on one of the opposing networks, the enemy. the enemy of the people, i call them. he said to these women, these were 10 really great women.
these are non-political women who had trump here, trump there, wearing trump hats, badges. the announcer said what can he do? you heard me say this. this happens a lot. what can he do when you are going to drop donald trump. one of these women stood out perhaps the leader, perhaps not. she came ford and she said there is absolutely nothing he could do. can you believe that? there is nothing he can do. and she said he has done a great job. we are work on it. there is david lynch. enjoy the, because his career in hollywood is officially over. did you see jimmy fallon? [crowd booing] >> the guy screws up my hair. he was so disappointed to find out it was real.
that's one of the great things i got. everybody used to say my hair is phoney. i'm wearing a hair piece. anybody here wearing a hair piece? but the one thing they never say that anymore because i have been caught in rainstorms and winds 60 miles an hour getting off. if it's not your hair, don't run for office, folks. don't run. do not run for office. because the gig would be up. so jimmy fallon apologizing. he apologized for humanizing me. the poor guy. now he's going to lose all of us. now he'll lose all of us. if somebody would open a talk show at night -- the guy on cbs is -- what a low life. what a low life. honestly, are these people funny? and i can laugh at myself.
frankly if i couldn't, i would be in big trouble. but there is no talent. they are not like talented people. johnny carson was talented. seriously. this guy on cbs has no talent. jimmy kimmel would meet me before the election, i'm telling you a true story, no talent. but i would go to his studio to do a shot. he would stand outside on the sidewalk waiting for here. here he comes donald trump. he opens my door. i said does he do this to everybody? his people said he does it for nobody. he's waiting for me two or three times before this. i do his show. and he is standing out on hollywood whatever boulevard. and he's standing there opening up the door, like hello, hello.
i wasn't president. i was like a guy. right? a guy with potential. he's here. here he is. sorry. thank you so much for doing this. but jimmy fallon calls me up, and he's like a nice guy. he's lost. he looks like a lost soul. he gets out there hey, hey, hi. but he's a nice guy. i agree to do his show. because i guess i was running at that time, he got tremendous ratings on that show. he should be thankful. he shouldn't be upset and angry. when you apologize because you got somebody else who didn't go on the other shows.
i know on the show, i agree, do whatever you want with my hair and that was it. a year and a half two years later he's apologizing because he hum me. and he really hurt himself. i said jimmy, i called me up after the show and said thank you for the incredible monster ratings. i said thank you, jimmy, that's very nice. i said don't hurt yourself by apologizing. i said on social media, jimmy, be a man. just relax. incredible. if somebody had said to these guys, cbs, nbc, i made a fortune for nbc to the apprentice. they treat me horribly. i think nbc is worse than cnn. and they wanted to renew my contract. they wanted to renew my contract. and they were doing everything.
they had the top man in comcast came up to see me in my office with a whole group of people. please please renew your contract with the apprentice. that's when i knew i was going to run. it's a prime time show doing well. 14 seasons did great. arnold schwarzenegger took my place and it tbhomed two shows. it was over. it bombed in one show. it was so bad they didn't believe it so they let it go a little bit longer. and the one who knew was my wife. she said, you know, she's very smart, she said you know there's nobody that can take your place. don't you? i said thank you, darling. how smart is that?
i don't know if she believes it. but she said there is nobody who can take your place. he'll not be successful. there is nobody, darling, that can take your place. how smart is she, how smart. and she has got a great style. we greeted today the king of jordan, the queen of jordan, and it was like a picture. i watched the three of them. the queen, the king and the first lady. i stood back and i watched. i didn't want to destroy that picture. she has done a tremendous job as first lady. [cheers and applause] she had an operation a few weeks ago. kidney operation and she is fine. but they had all kinds of
projections. they said she got a facelift. no, i would let you know. they couldn't hide that one for long. they said she left me and moved to virginia. they said she left me and moved to new york. so she moved to virginia, she moved to new york. the on thing they wouldn't say is what happened. she is private. she doesn't want to talk about things. but really unfair stuff. you know what? we have never done better than we are doing now. we have never had a time like we have now. we never have. we never had higher polls than we have now. even gallup, gallup who treats me horribly. what polls do is called suppression. they put out these horrible polls and they hope everyone will say i like trump but he has no chance to win.
it should be illegal. you should check the spolsters. we had one with abc. the week before we are down 12. if you are down 12 it's over. if the polls are real. i said they can't be real. we just went to michigan and we had 30,000 people. excuse me, we went to south carolina, but i didn't come here that often because we were leading by a lot. so i said, if you don't mind, do you mind if i don't come back, i am going to come to places where we have it closer. nobody said don't worry about it. they said you stay out of here, mr. president. almost to be mr. president. but it really has been an incredible journey for all of us. we are the super elite. we are the super elite. we are. and we are going to call ourselves that.
i said the other day, as you saw my last speech in minnesota, a great place. unbelievable crowd. it seated 9,000, and they had 15,000 or 20,000 people. it was incredible. just like you have a lot of people outside, you just can't. if i come into an arena and it has empty seats, i think that's the end. i don't know how i will be able to take it. henry, what will i do if that happens. it's not going to happen. remember what i said. we are going to start winning again. we are winning now like we haven't won before. we are winning with our military, our military is now being built up like you wouldn't believe. we are winning with our military. we are winning on trade. we are winning on trade. we are defending our borders. because if you don't have borders, you don't have a
country. you don't have a country. [crowd chants "build that wall"] it's happening. it's not build that wall anymore it's continue building that wall. because we are building it. we are fixing it miles and miles. we have $1.billion, we are fixing the wall and building the wall in san diego. nobody wants the wall until it's in their backyard. they didn't like people walking across their front lawns in san diego. we are building the wall, we are fixing the wall, and we'll get it done. democrats want open borders and they don't mind crime. think about it. last week they thought they have
a great issue. and, you know, i get credit -- they are saying i have good political instincts. some people said i have the best political instincts in 50 years. i don't think so. but i have my own feeling. when i heard them talking about the children. they were using pictures taken in 2014 when barack obama was president. i wasn't president. and what i learned is one thing. our facilities are cleaner, better kept and better run. that's the one thing i learned. i saw that. but what we have is two extremes. i said this is fine for us. the democrats want open borders, they want anybody they want including ms-13 pouring into the country. and the democrats don't like
i.c.e., great, brave tough people. these people are much tougher than ms-13. they don't like border patrol. they don't like your police. they don't like anybody. the democrats want to protect illegals coming into this country. some of whom are not good. some of whom cause lots of problems in the worst possible way. they want to protect illegals coming into the country much more so than they want to protect you. and that's not where we are coming from. okay? so i defined it today. the democrats want open borders and they don't mind crime. we want very tight, very strict borders, and by the way, you saw a 70-year low, with all the complaining i am doing, we have done a good job and we have taken thousands -- we got to get
that wall built all the way across. that's like a symbol. they are only good at one thing. what's their term. resist. the party of maxine waters. do you believe her? this has become the party of maxine waters and nancy pelosi. that's what it is. so they don't mind crime, they wanted open borders. we wanted really tough boirsd and we want people to come in through the legal process. what about the thousands of people that have gone through this process that are waiting in line to come into our country and we are going to let these people pour in, we have no idea who they are. and they came to me three days ago. sir, we would like to you sign this order. we need 5,000 judges on the bored. i said judges. what other country has judges.
i said how many do we have now? they didn't even know. we have thousands of judges now we'll have 5,000. i have done a good job with judges, judge gorsuch. and we have many judges. we'll set the record for the most of judges. which is an important thing. we are putting great talented people who see the constitution the way it's written. they don't make up the constitution. but they come up, and this is -- sir, we need 5,000 judges. i said 5,000. we put a judge on like on the bench. federal. it takes us weeks to vet. it takes us a long time to get the judges. we are talking about one person. 5,000. i said where are you going to find 5,000 people to be judges. how many do we have now? they don't even know the number
even though they are in charge. we have thousands of judges already. if a person comes into our country, steps one foot, they take their name, they bring them to court, they release them and they go into the country and you never see them again. it's the craziest thing i have ever seen. i said i don't want judges. i want i.c.e. and border patrol agents. that's all. and we want to tell people i'm sorry. you are coming into the country illegally. we don't want you in the country. it's over. do you know i heard a number today which is hard to believe. we have 700,000 people waiting to go on trial. this isn't from trump it was a disaster for bush, although we have much appreciated laura bush's lovely letter, it was a disaster for barb, it was a disaster for obama. in fact the head of this homeland was on over the weekend
and he was very honest by the. he said it was a tough time for them. but we are going to straighten it out. i got a bad hand. i got the job, and trade deals were bad. how bad we are trade deals. north korea, they thought they were going to war. you go to war with north korea you will lose 30 to 50 million people. seoul is a city with 28 million people. you go and you go to war, you lose 30, 40, 50, who knows, millions of people. i'm not even talking about nuclear. they have thousands of ca cann oorkcannonsaimed at seoul. you could have lost millions and millions of people. i got a bad hand with north korea.
i got a bad hand with all these horrible trait deals. mexico will make over $100 billion on the united states this year. canada, nice guy, nice guy, prime minister justin. i said justin, what's your problem, justin? canada, o'canada, i like their national anthem. i like ours better. canada is great. i love canada. we had a wonderful understanding. we hugged, we kid. everybody was happy. i. i made some changes. i left, everybody was happy. prime minister abe said president trump was right, everybody was in love. they took the picture with merkel, we were friendly. i get on to air force one and he
doesn't understand air force one has 22 televisions. they have televisions in closets and areas no place does. unlimited budget, air force one. i get on to the plane and i see justin trudeau, the prime minister of canada, saying canada will not be bullied by the united states. i said what are we doing here? canada has a 275% tariff on dairy products. their lumber is a disaster with us. i say why aren't we using our own lumber. now we are allowed to take lumber from our field and regrow it. and take lumber from our environmental system. in the old days you couldn't do that. we had to go to other countries. lumber is a disaster. energy is a disaster. justin said we fought world war i together and world war ii together. that's true. we love canada.
but can days charging almost 300% tariffs on dairy products and other things. but it's all work out great. i said if you are going to do that, we'll put a tariff on your cars. european union. we lost $151 billion with the european union. sounds nice. many of us originally came from somewhere in the european union. i had two parents, european union. it sounds wonderful. our country lost $151 million. they send their mercedes and bmws. we tax practically nothing. we can't send our cars. if we do they charge many, many times the tax we stupidly don't charge. i told them here is what we are going to do. we'll charge a tariff on steel.
they don't let our farmers into the european union it's very hard. so we have farmers that want to sell. with these people, they don't tell you these stories. the european union has what they call trade barriers. the european union doesn't allow our farmers to go and trade. if they do it's very expensive. like canada. when you are paying a 275% tax, now i understand it's higher. that's essentially a trade barrier. you can't trade. how can we pay that kind of a tax. i want the barriers taken down, i wanted our farmers to be able to trade. i want to sell cars there just like they sell cars here. it's all going to work out. remember this. it's all going to work out because we are the piggy bank they like to take from. whether it's military
protection, you look at nato. nato, we are spending 90% with nato. it's all wonderful and we like to help out. but it helps them more than it helps us. we are very far away. germany is paying 1% of a much smaller gdp. we are paying close to 4% of a much larger gdp. now, that doesn't work, forks. -- folks. i think we should pay the same as germany. so we are work all of these things. but we were given somewhat of a bad hand because we came and they had all these problems. i'm loving what we are doing. you people are loving what we are doing. we have the great peter navarro.
he likes tariffs. he likes them better than i do. they are all calling. they all want to make deals. before i did this, they weren't calling the obama administration. but the obama administration -- and in all fairness the bush administration didn't care. itasn't their thing. last year on trade our country lost $817 billion with a b, billion dollars. $817. who the hell can do that? we don't have to be perfect and we don't have to get it down to zero. but we can't lose 800. you feel sort of stupid. don't you? don't you feel stupid? and the biggest of course is china. china made anywhere depending on the way you count, from $375 billion, we built china.
and i really like president xi. but we built china. and they did helping you with the bored with nort -- with ther with north korea. there has to be some fairness. i am a believer in free trade, but i'm really a believer in fair trade. this is ridiculous. i said to a man in china. how did it get so bad? they know the gig is up. how did it get so bad? remember this. since i got elected we picked up tremendous worth. we picked up anywhere from 9 to 7 to 7 to 9 trillion dollars. we are almost twice the size of china's economy. nobody knows that.
nobody knows that. i said how did it get so bad? they said we would put on a tax on cars. in china if you sell a car into china from the united states, they charge you a 25% tax. if china sells a car into the united states we charge them 2.5%. so it's 2.5% versus 25 percent. that's not a big worker. i better a successful guy. big success. but that doesn't work too well, does it? we can many, many cases like that. we'll straighten it out. and they all want to negotiate. they have to negotiate. it has to happen. that's not a threat. it's like the iran deal was so bad. we paid $150 billion to sign a horrible agreement. we gave $1.8 billion in cash to
pick up four hostages. they are the wealthiest hostages in the world. they have the highest net worth of any hostage in history. we paid nothing. nothing to north korea and he did a smart thing. it was goodwill. we did it before i even left. there are a lot of good things. and and lot of good things are happening and it's all going to work out. it's going to work out because we have a big advantage. remember we are the bank and they are taking money from us hand over fist. at some point it has to stop. we can lower your taxes which we did. we give you the greatest tax cut in the history of our country. [cheers and applause] we have some incredible things
happening with healthcare. we got badly hurt. we had all the votes, then one gentleman like 2:00 in the morning, he went no. well, he campaigned on repeal and replace. we had all the votes. perhaps he was grandstanding. who knows what he was doing. he said no no. people said what the hell happened. he has been campaigning for 8 years. repeal and replace. and he didn't do that. but now what we have done in the tax cuts is we have gotten rid of the individual mandate. the individual mandate. we have gotten rid of it. by the way, i have the stupid teleprompters, you don't find mind that i haven't used them. every once in a while i look at them, it's so boring. america is back, bigger and bert and stronger than ever. i keep look.
i see things that just. they are true. but not not quite as exciting. so we are doing some well. we are lifting millions and millions of americans from welfare to work. from dependence to independence and poverty to prosperity. right? we are putting new american steel into the spine of our country and breathing new hope into our beautiful communities. it's true. the forgot eve fore -- the forgn and women are forgotten no more. they are trying to figure out who are these people who came and voted. who are they? all of us. they are trying to find, how do we get to the forgotten men and women. i said i think you have lost them for a long time.
because just like this producer from hollywood said, we are doing a real job. i don't believe, so now it's 511 days. i don't believe any administration -- and you are with us -- when we came out, we are partners, this is not me. this is a whole group of people. i don't believe, and i don't even think it's close. that any president has done what we have done in 500 days. [cheers and applause] not on the judges, not only the biggest tax cut, not only anwar in alaska. you know all about anwar, one of the great drilling sites in the world. nobody could get oil and gas. nobody could get approved. ronald ray gab couldn't get it. nobody could. i didn't even want it until i heard nobody else wanted it.
that's part of our tax cuts. tax cuts and reform. give me the word cut. i want the word cut. so we cut regulations more than any president in history whether it's four years, eight years, 16 years. we want regulation. we want crystal clean water. we want beautiful clean air. we want it more than anybody, and our air and our water is better than it ever has been, and we are going to keep it that way. it's very important. so as long as we are proud of who we are and we are very proud of who we are, and what we are fighting for, we as a country will never ever fail. we'll never fail. [cheers and applause]
we have 3.4 million new jobs since election day. if i would have said during the campaign that i was going to create 3.4 million new jobs, countries are trying to hold back their companies that used to be our companies from leaving and moving back to the united states. we have companies, chrysler, so many companies coming back into the united states. they want to be where the action is, not only because of the tax cuts. but for the other reasons, including those regulation cuts. but we have more jobs, we have higher stats. the manufacturers of the united states voted and said this is the single most of optimism manufacturers in this country
have ever had. small business owners the same thing. it's the most of optimistic it's ever been. they have never been this optimistic. i'll tell you something. i would like to take the credit for this. but i can't because it's henry. south consider is doing unbelievable business. companies are pouring in. your jobs are way up. your numbers are through the roof. you are a real leader all over the country they are looking at south carolina. your governor is a man named henry mcmaster. you are doing unbelievable numbers. i didn't want to say that, henry. i didn't want to say that henry. i wanted to take the credit for myself. but i figured south carolina would understand. but were standing on the shoulders of true american patriots who put down the
railroad, built up the highways and dug out a thing called the panama canal and lost many lives doing it. mosquitoes took many, many lives. they crossed oceans, trekked deserts and scaled mountains and built the mort incredible nation the world has never seen. but our nation was going badly in the wrong direction for a long period of time. we have $7 trillion in the middle east. what do we have? other than death and destruction. what do we have? what a decision that was to go in. i believe it was the worst decision in the history of our country. and the way we got out was horrible if you look at iraq. the way we got out was horrible. truly one of the worst decisions ever made. $7 trillion and thousands of lives.
count the lives on both sides millions. our answers on won two world wars, defeated fascism and communism, put a month on the face of the moon, by the way, nasa is now open for business. [cheers and applause] open for business. i put a great man a wonderful human being, a great leader, a friend, mike pence, vice president in charge. i had a meeting with mike and other people running nasa. i said, listen, you got rich guys for whatever reason they love rockets, we don't have to put up so much money, let them put up the money, you have guys sending rockets.
i said, lease them the land, charge fem them a lot, that better, we're a lan land lord. we're doing our things. we have rich guys, i don't know what it is, they love rockets. i said this great. you can't send rockets like down the street, right. you can't take the local plot, local walmart, local store, and send a rocket, we have these en credible big sites that are meant for this with the infrastructureuch has not been used in a long time. we're back in, i said to him, i think business people, let the rich guys pay for it. we got site and real estate. let them put their rockets up, you saw elon the other day, i neff sanever saw anything like . i thought was incredible the engines came back down that is
incredible. they came down. the third is missing. but this is okay. i thought that is incredible. have you rich guys that are worth billions, they want to spend money to rocketry that great. i told my people, let them do it. if they reach the moon with their money, we'll take all of the credit. nobody will remember name, let it do it. keep this momentum going, we need more republicans in washington. we need governor henry mcmaster as a continuation in south carolina. very important. come here, henry. because with your help we're going to continue to win. do you remember in the campaign?
