Thank you very much and thank you to the original Lee Greenwood. Thank you. Thank you, Lee. Well, I just want to say a very big hello, Kentucky. It's great to be here in the home of a group called the Wildcats.
You ever heard the Kentucky Wildcats? And by the way, they play at a very big arena, this place. Look at this. Wow. Hello up there. This is incredible with thousands of proud, hardworking, freedom loving American patriots, which is what? Tomorrow, the people of Kentucky will head to the polls and you will vote to re-elect your terrific Republican governor, Matt Bevin. He's done a fantastic job. And we're sending a signal by doing that to the rest of the country, to the rest of the world, that the Republican Party, you know what we stand for, but you see what's happening with the Democrats.
They have gone crazy. The do nothing Democrats and they're not getting it done under Republican leadership. The economy is booming. Wages are rising. Confidence is soaring. Kentucky is thriving like never, ever before. And America is stronger than ever before. Kentucky's unemployment rate has reached the lowest point in the history of our country. That. And I want to just tell you that you have incredible representatives and the job that Matt Bevin has done as governor.
He's had to do some things that you had to do and he's done unbelievably well. And it sets you up to be a rocket ship in the future. You had to do it. So I just want to thank you for having the courage to do what he had to do. But you have the best numbers you've ever had in the history of the state. And with the help of your Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell. We have confirmed one hundred and fifty seven judges to follow the constitution as written.
And we're supporting our police. We're rebuilding our military. We're defeating radical Islamic terrorists like never before. The monstrous animal known as al Baghdadi is dead. And the man that took his place is dead also. American special forces gave the world's number one terrorist a one way ticket to hell.
No enemy on earth stands a chance against the awesome power of the United States military, which is now stronger than ever before, we've rebuilt it and it was all made in America. All made. And our country is winning again. And our country is highly respected. Again. But while we are creating jobs and killing terrorists, the radical Democrats are going totally insane. They want to obliterate the rule of law, drive out, fade from the public square, sire.
And you know this silence you online, confiscate your guns. You better be careful. The Second Amendment, very, very important, very precious.
They are after your Second Amendment with us. Nobody's touching our Second Amendment. And that includes a gentleman that's running against Matt there after your Second Amendment. We can't let that happen. They want to indoctrinate your children. You know this, destroy anyone who holds traditional American values. All you have to do is ask the boys from Covington Catholic High School.
Some of whom are here tonight. The far left wants to impose their authoritarian ideology on the nation. Telling you what to think, what to believe and how you should live. They want to erase our traditions, our culture, our history and our heroes. They want to subjugate you and break you to their will. But Kentucky will never be broken. Kentucky can't be broken. You're too strong. In their crazed thirst for power, the Democrats are trying to tear our country apart.
First, Democrats engineered the rush. Your hopes. The most egregious fraud ever foisted upon the American people. The Russian homes. Then they did the Mueller scam. You remember that the mularski 2 years and they said nothing. And then Mr. Mueller testified. That was a wonderful day for me. And you remember last week, I don't know Tulsi gaborik, but Hillary Clinton said that Tulsi Gabbard is a Russian agent. I don't know Jill Stein. She's a greenie, and that's fine.
She's agreed. Jill Stein. But Jill Stein was an agent of Russia also. These people are crazy. Now, corrupt politicians Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff, they are corrupt. And Nancy. Unlike Kentucky, which is doing great. Nancy oughta stop wasting time. Go back to her district in San Francisco. Help the homeless get rid of the drugs. Get rid of the needles that are lying all over the street and all of the things that are washing into the ocean through their storm sewer system.
What's happened to San Francisco and what's happened to so many other places run by the radical left Democrats? It's unbelievable. Los Angeles. You take a look at Los Angeles. Looks like a third world city. But go back to Nancy's area. Look at what's happened. There's been no place in the country that's gone down. Like the area that Nancy Pelosi represents. And she's wasting all of her time. And you know what? It's backfiring. You see it.
But the media and the Democrats have launched an even more brazen assault on our nation with a deranged, hyper partisan impeachment with just impeach. So today we just hit the highest number in the history of the stock market. And that's hundreds of. So last week, think of this in the history of our country. It's never done better. And by the way, that's not rich. That's not poor. That's for everybody. You're for one case.
How you doing? Pretty good, right? Pretty good. People tell me that their wives, their husbands, all of a sudden they've been running the 4 0 1 case for years and they totally lost respect for, let's say the husband totally lost his wife. Now they think he's a financial genius because he's up 74 percent. She says, Darling, I love you. You are the most incredible, brilliant financial mind. And you know what? If the Democrats get in, that's not going down by 50 percent.
That's going down to nothing. It's going to be worthless. Going to be worthless. You'll have a depression, the likes of which you've never seen. Mark my words. But hopefully we don't have to even think about it. And that was going to happen here when we took over, that was going down in the wrong direction. And don't forget, that was zero interest. We're paying interest. In other words, people are now getting interest in their money.
But that was with zero interest, real easy. With zero interest. Last week, the Democrats voted to try and nullify the ballots of tens of millions of Americans, to be exact, 63 million people disgracing themselves and bringing shame upon the House of Representatives. They've been plotting to overthrow the election since the first hour that we won. And actually, before we won, they were plotting to overthrow this election before we won. Nineteen minutes after I took the oath of office, that disgusting Washington Post.
Look at all these people back there.
Look. Fake news media. It's the fake news. Look at all of them. What they don't know is that when we hang it up in five years or nine years or 13 years.
We're maybe 17 years. Or maybe if I still have the strength. Twenty one years. See, now they're going crazy. Now there's a. See, I told you he was a dictator. He wants to take charge and control of our country. These people are crazy. Yeah. You have one nut job on television. He's sitting down doing an interview recently and he looks at the person he's interviewing. And he goes like he's in total depression.
Total depression. And he goes, hey, good fans up that. Thank you. He goes, you know, he's going to win, don't you? You know, he's going to win like like deficit. The guy goes, well, we're going to fight and we're going to. No, no, he's going to win. You know, he's never leaving office, don't you? He's never going to leave office. These people are crazy. But that disgusting newspaper that's right there, The Washington Post, declared the campaign to impeach President Trump has just begun.
All right. You can get him out. Be gentle, be gentle, be very gentle. You know, every time I say get him out of here, I end up getting sued. He says, you know, they say, oh, gee, he hurt my arm. So be very gentle, please. I don't want to get sued. Virgin Mary, Virgin. He's going home to mom. By the way, do we love our law enforcement?
And then the whole world. Even on a Monday night. You know, I like the Monday nights because I think we're 58. No, that's a good record even for the Wildcats. That's a good we're 58 and 0. But even on a Monday night. Is there anything cooler than being at a Trump rally? With last week's vote, the far left has declared war on American democracy itself. These people are lunatics in the face of these attacks.
Republicans are the most unified that I've ever seen and I've been watching them and been a big part of them for a long time. And the Democrats have never witnessed anything like it. And they know they're not going to win in 2020, so let's see what can we do to win. But that's not working too well. You'll see the American people are fed up with Democrat lies, hoaxes, slander. The Democrats outrageous conduct has created an angry majority that will vote the do nothing Democrats the hell out of office soon.
Tomorrow, Kentucky has a chance to send the radical Democrats a message. You will vote to reject the Democrat's extremism, socialism and corruption, and you will vote to re-elect Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin, who's done a great job. That's a veteran. He's a patriot. He's done it all. He's been a very, very successful business leader. He put his whole life at stake to help this state. And the job he's done is incredible under his leadership.
Kentucky has created over fifty seven thousand new jobs. But I helped also. We work together. Now he is difficult. I have to say, you know, maybe it cost him the election, but it's OK. Here, look. He's such a pain when he needs something for Kentucky, like money, like aid, like he wants me to call one of the many manufacturers now that are coming into Kentucky. Could you call the head of some company in Japan, please?
I say mad. Do I have to do it? Please, please. But isn't that really what you wanted to govern? That's what you want. He's such a pain in the ass, but that's what you want. And the job is done, one of the best in the country, not the best. He's been incredible matters. strong on crime and tough on illegal immigration. Thank you.
He's pro-worker, pro life and 100 percent pro Second Amendment. And by the way, you're going to lose your Second Amendment if you vote in Democrat. You think I'm kidding? I see what they're saying. I watch what they're doing. They're calling me all the time. You will lose your Second Amendment as soon. I'm telling you. I sure. As you're standing here. Anybody sitting? Nobody. Ever since you can sit if you want. Now you stand.
You know what they say. The fact is, look, you've been standing. Nobody sat. I don't know. Is it that exciting? Nobody said, you know what they say. You know, they say. They say Trump only got one standing ovation because they stood at the beginning and they never sat down. But they don't say the second part. It's great, great, great spirit. You know why you love our country and you see what's happening.
We have turned this big monstrous ship.
We have turned it around and we need so badly, you know, it's like you plant a tree.
It takes a lot. We have to get those roots to hold. We have the best unemployment numbers in the history of our country. So many things. So many things. The best employment numbers we have the best of everything. And I think I'm going to count, but I think it's like one hundred and eighteen. I told you we have a record stock market today. I think about a hundred are going to have to check it because, you know, with the fake news, if I'm off by half a point.
If it's if it's 117 and not 1 8, even if I go under. They report it. They say he didn't tell the truth. It was really 1 19. But I like a lot over 100. Well, we had the highest stock market in our history. Think of that. That's incredible. But Matt Bevin has made record investments in education spending for Kentucky students. Education is so important to Matt Bevin will defend your Kentucky values. He loves his state.
From an all out assault being waged you new from the extreme left. Not good. I can't even imagine. How can you vote for somebody from the extreme left? You know, this guy Bashir is a major lefty. You know that, right? Why are we even when. Let's just have a good time. Are you sure we need an election tomorrow, Matt? How does Kentucky vote for a person? I'm telling you. He will always vote for Pelosi and Schumer and Shifty Schiff about this guy.
How about if he makes up a conversation, he gets up before the United States Congress? He repeats my conversation with the head of the Ukraine, the new president. A good guy repeats it. I said I never said that. He made a horrible statement. It was a total lie. And then I actually wanted to release the actual conversation. And you haven't heard about the whistleblower after that, have you? Because the whistleblower said lots of things that were so good, folks.
You're going to find out. But these are very dishonest people, shifty Schiff. But Matt's running against these people and we have to send them aside because they're dangerous. The radical left named Andy Beshir, who rejects everything Kentucky stands for. That's who they want to win. This year has openly pledged to stop the policies of Donald Trump. What are the policies? Take care of our vets, take care of our military. We want jobs. We want companies to stop leaving us.
They're not leaving anymore. You see, companies aren't leaving anymore. Have you noticed? Remember years ago before I ever thought of doing this? I mean, when I said, let's do this, I said, great. Now, first lady, I said, Melania, let's give it a shot. And then one by one, we were doing good. And what we've done, if you remember, before we ran, companies were leaving Kentucky. They were leaving.
They were going to Mexico. They were going to China. Japan. They were going all over any place. But Kentucky, you don't read about that at all. Now they're all coming back. Your company. But presure wants to shut down your coal. Shut down your energy. Raise your taxes and take a giant wrecking ball to the greatest economy in the history of the state of Kentucky, the greatest economy you've ever had. He's going to destroy it and it won't be long.
It will go very quickly. You know, you're all sitting there. Everybody has good jobs. You don't like it. You go find another job. It's like the choice I got for military. I got your choice, too. You don't like your job. You find another when you tell the boss, hey, I'm getting out of here like this guy, you go get a better job for more money. Bashir doesn't represent you. He represents the Washington swamp and he's backed by the same people trying to overthrow the last election.
Bashirs supported crooked Hillary Clinton and he's funded by the pro-abortion lobby and open borders, fanatics, open borders, let everyone bull rider, let them all pull right in by sheer wants to bring sanctuary cities to Kentucky. Think of that one. Releasing violent criminals and aliens to terrorize innocent Kentucky families. He wants sanctuary cities, he hasn't learned what's happened. You know, we had a great election a couple of weeks ago in North Carolina. We won two House seats.
We were supposed to lose probably both of them and we won them by a lot. We want to buy a lot. And I think we won because of the Second Amendment, because it's under assault from Democrats. But I think we want also because of sanctuary cities, because the bad news came out of sanctuary cities really bad.
And I think that was a reason we won both House seats by a lot this year is too liberal, too extreme and too dangerous for the state of Kentucky. Tomorrow, everybody needs to vote Republican. We got to go Republican all the way. And I want to bring up a man I'm serious about this, this guy works so hard. He's a great natural talent in business, which you needed. And he straightened out. And I'll tell you what, he will be one of the truly greats in the history and maybe the greatest in the history of this state.
Matt Bevin, come on up that. How do you like having President Trump and Proper Reno? This is better this is better than the final four, I'll tell you why. In terms of energy, this is extraordinary. Thank you, Kentucky. It is critical that we go top to bottom run the slate votes straight Republican, but do your civic duty. Let's get out and vote. Let's send a message to Washington, to the other states, to the United States of America, that Kentucky is leading the way and that we support the president of the United States, Donald J.
Trump. So we're also joined tonight by a very powerful man in Washington, your great Senator, Mitch McConnell.
Nobody works harder for Kentucky than Mitch, I will tell you. Nobody works harder and frankly, maybe more importantly, nobody works smarter. It's up here. I know a lot of people that work hard, work smart. When the Democrat arsonists in Washington tried to destroy an innocent man named Brett Kavanaugh. Now Justice read Cavenagh. Mitch refused to cave to the left wing mob.
And that's what it was. It was a mob. There has never been a man treated so badly in Washington as Judge Kavanaugh. Previously Judge, now, justice, we got a man and he's been great. And he will be great. Mitch confirmed two tremendous Supreme Court justices Mitch helped deliver the largest ever investment in our military and past V.A. choice and V.A. accountability for our amazing veterans. Now, I know his opponent because I came here, he remember last year, slightly different location that has OK.
It was still the great state of Kentucky. Because Andy Barr had Amy Magrath and extreme liberal against him. And Andy Barr is here with us tonight and we're going to introduce him, but he better. So she said to herself, well, you know, I failed in Congress. Now let's go for the Senate. She wanted to go to the house. Now she wants to go, it's not going to work that way. Extreme liberal, anti-gun.
Lots of different things. Amy MCGRATH. Compared my election, think of this one. It's so insulting. I shouldn't say just say it. Yeah, I know. It's so insulting. You know, you work so hard. You love your country so much and they get up to say things. She compared it to 9/11, a slander upon our nation.
She wants open borders. She supports the impeachment, Holck's whichone like nobody. She wants to get rid of me. She wasn't too happy with me last year. We came in handy and we did a job on her. And this is gonna be easy. And she was caught telling donors, Democrats, that she is further left than anyone in the history of the state of Kentucky. Is that what you want? So next November, the state needs to defend its values and vote for rock ribbed Kentucky conservative Mitch McConnell.
But we're going to get back to that later. We'll be back many times. We'll be back here many times, Mitch. Well, thank you, Mr. President, for making America great again. And Matt Bevin is making Kentucky great again thanks to your help tonight. And working together, we're changing the federal courts forever. Nobody has done more to change the court system in the history of our country than Donald Trump. And Mr. President, we're going to keep on doing it.
My motto is Leave no vacancy behind. So President Obama left Mitch and me and Grand and all of us, he left a hundred and forty two openings for judges, you're not supposed to allow any you don't do that. You know, they say the most important thing a president can do is federal judges. Right, including the Supreme Court, obviously. And I came in and I said, how many do we have? And they said, How many?
One, sir. I said, judge openings. And I thought, that's a nun or one or two. He said, sir, we have one hundred and forty two. I said, What? I said, tell me again, said we have one hundred and forty two. So Mitch and I and Rand would like to thank very much President Obama because nobody has ever been so generous.
Also with us tonight is a great warrior and a great guy, smart, strong, loves your state, and he's really become a good friend of mine.
I'll tell you, he's a little bit different. OK. But whenever I've needed him, whenever I needed him, he was always there. It's true. I mean, sometimes, like I'd say, I don't need your vote, Red. Good. He'll vote his own way. It's got that little libertarian touch. That's OK. But whenever we need and I'm not talking about me, I'm talking about we we need a vote. He's so incredible and he's become a really good friend.
And I want to have him come up for a second.
Rand Paul, your senator, is a great warrior. President Trump has great courage. He faces down the fake media every day. But Congress needs to step up and have equal courage to defend the president. Hunter Biden made fifty thousand dollars a month. That's the definition of corruption. We know he got it only because of his family connections. We also now know the name of the whistleblower.
The whistleblower needs to come before Congress as a material witness because he worked for Joe Biden at the same time Hunter Biden was getting money from corrupt oligarchs. I say tonight to the media, do your job and print his name. And I say this to my fellow colleagues in Congress, to every Republican in Washington. Step up and subpoena Hunter Biden and subpoena the whistleblower. And I say to my colleagues, if shifty shift will not let Hunter Biden come in, if you will not bring the whistle blower for every Republican in Congress, should take a walk and say this is a farce.
Wow, that was excellent. Thank you. Great job, he's a warrior, he's a warrior, I've always said it. Also with us tonight are representatives from your state that are fantastic couple from outside your state who will welcome them. Also, right. But these are also great fighters, great warriors. How Rodgers? Brett Guthrie. Thomas Massie. Man, we just spoke about one, a great race. Andy Barr. James Komar. And from an incredible state that we won 2016, that crooked Hillary said she's going to win, that state didn't come too close at winning that state.
It's a great state. And we love the people of North Carolina Congressman Mark Meadows. Along with some of your local great politicians and a person that's done a really spectacular job, you know, in Michigan, a woman, she just kept on going.
She just kept going. Reminded me, by the way, of your governor from the standpoint she never quit. Now, Republicans hadn't won Michigan in many, many years. She call. Could you come again? Could you do it again? Could you come make another speech, please? I Sarah, this the last one? No, no, no. How about a couple of more?
And then Bill Clinton actually told Hillary Clinton, you better get going, something's going on in Michigan. You didn't lose Michigan. You better start. Go. No, no, no. The polls say everything's good. And we won the great state of Michigan for the first time in getting.
And I said when it came time to pick in the Republican Party chair, head of the RNC, I said, I got to get the woman from Michigan. Ronna McDaniel, the head of the.
And when they were saying how sophisticated Hillary Clinton's campaign was, you know, we're not sophisticated. Great. I don't think so. Remember all doing to get well, she's got the finest computer technology in the world. Yeah, she paid. She paid for it, but she didn't get it. She has really fantastic geniuses. But I had somebody that was a lot better. And the people that she had and his name was Brad Scowl and he's here with us campaign.
Doing a great job. And our numbers are looking very good. But think of it. We're one day short of a year now. Can you believe it? Less than a year.
It begins November 3rd this time. We had that great, great date. Boy, November 8th, remember, was there ever a day like that in television history? And they have no idea. Because when we do hang it up, they're all out of business, they know that. That's why I think that we will get I expect to get a full hardy, unbelievable endorsement very soon from the fairly New York Times and from the Amazon Washington Post. You know, before the election started, about a month before I announced that I was going to do this, I said, I'm going to become a politician.
I can't believe it. I'm going to become a politician.
But I looked at The New York Times and it was like a little leaflet that you hand out at a grocery store read. The wind would blow the way it was dead. I call it the failing New York Times only because eventually it will fail. But we built it up. They do stories in my entire life. I had a few stories on the front page of The New York Times. And now if I have three or four a day, it's like, why are they not covering me anymore?
And they're all bad. They only they can take what we did two weeks ago with the number one terrorist in the world. And they make it look as bad as possible. In fact, I love dogs, but they gave the dog full credit. They didn't give me a ticket. That's OK. The dog got the credit and the dog will be coming very shortly, by the way, to the White House. But they'll be endorsing us. And, you know, all of these crazy like CNN with its bad ratings, there goes its red life.
It just went off. The red light just went on. Well, it's hard. Look, put yourself in their position. They have it on their covering. And now they know they're ready to get hit. So they turn it off. I mean, I can't let the red light just went off now. But put yourself in Sienna's position without us. You know, cable was not supposed to be a good business. Then we came along. It's not me.
It's we. They came from the valleys. They came from everywhere. The cities they came from places. They're still trying to figure out where the hell did all those people come from? A great senator from Tennessee, they have early voting and I was in Pennsylvania, make it a speech and he saw me because he had a couple of great congressman friends from Pennsylvania and he said, you know, in Tennessee, we have very early voting. And I just left that.
I've been doing this for 24 years. And I got to be honest with you, I've never seen so many people vote. And these are people they love our country. They're incredible. They work hard. But they never liked what they were voting for. So they really wouldn't vote. Sounds terrible. But they didn't like anything that they saw. They say sure. I'm seeing people and he said this come out from the valleys, come out from the mountains, come out from areas that they've never come out.
We have lines that are five blocks long at every voting booth and voila. And he said, I can't speak for the rest of the country. But of the rest of the countries like Tennessee, you're going to have the greatest victory in the history of our nation. And that's what happened. That was a great statement. That was a great statement from people from a great state also. Tomorrow, you must elect the entire Republican ticket from governor on down, including your next lieutenant governor, Ralph Alvarado.
Ralph Alvarado. Good man. And your next attorney general, Daniel Cameron. Should I bring Daniel up, get off here. Daniel. He is a star. He is a star. Mr. President, I hope you can tell that Kentucky is Trump country. We are proud to stand with you on pro-life issues in here in the Commonwealth. We are gonna stand up for those who cannot speak for themselves. And Mr. President, we are going to stand with you in protecting the Second Amendment rights of all Kentuckians.
And Mr. President, I make a personal commitment to you as the next attorney general. We are going to make sure that Kentucky is never a sanctuary state. Thank you, Dan.. Star Wars star is born. A star is born. You ever see that movie star? Thank you, Daniel. Great. Your next secretary of state, Michael Adams. Auditor Mark Harmon. Thank you, Mark. Treasurer Alison Ball. She's doing great. And Agriculture Commissioner Ryan quarrels.
With the help of everyone here, America is the hottest economy anywhere in the world by far. Foreign leaders come in to see me. Congratulations on your economy. China's doing poorly, as you know, but they're paying us billions and billions and billions of dollars and they've never given us 10 cents before billions of dollars. They gave a lot of that money to our farmers who got targeted, but no longer. They're back buying from our farmers. But we've created 6.7 million new jobs since the election.
And if I would have ever said that during the campaign, the fake news back there would have never let me hear the end of it. Think of that 6.7. And today, just today, a record. One hundred and fifty eight million Americans are now employed, the highest level of employment in our country's history. African-American unemployment just dropped to the lowest level ever recorded in the history of our country. Hispanic, American and Asian American unemployment rates have also reached the all time historic lows.
The history of our country. Hourly earnings, listen to this, are up 9 percent since the election. Nobody ever thought that was going to be happening under the previous two administrations. We lost 60000 factories. I thought that was a typo. I said, how can you lose 60000? It turned out to be right. And you know how I know because I've been saying it for two years and they never corrected me. Two years. I get a call sometimes from the people on the campaign.
Sir, sir, we have an emergency. What's the emergency? Somebody is calling from the media. The thing is.
Did you put a comma in the wrong locations because they consider it to be a front page story. Under my administration, we've added nearly ten thousand new factories and many, many more thousands of factories are coming into our country will reversed. To get relief to working families, we passed massive tax cuts, massive to lift up distressed communities. Our tax law created opportunity zones. Tim Scott of South Carolina was so involved, including one hundred and forty four designated by your great governor.
By the way, the other governor, I don't think well, I don't know yet that could do so well. He'll be calling for a meeting and I won't be able to see him because I like him very much. But I like this one very much and we're going to help. We slashed a record number of job killing regulations, we ended the war on American energy. We're now the largest producer of energy anywhere in the world by far.
And we ended the war on beautiful clean coal. I announced the withdrawal of the United States from the horrible, costly, one sided Paris climate accord.
Ask them how they're doing in Paris with it. That too good. I cancel the so-called Clean Power Plan and repeal Obama's federal coal moratorium.
We're putting our great miners back to work. On trade, we're starting to set records every week where reversing decades of Washington disloyalty, stupidity and corruption. Past administrations did nothing as China looted our factories and stole up to five hundred billion dollars of American. Dollars, by the way, people can't even believe it. Not five hundred million, that's a lot if you lost five hundred million. That's a lot. I thought that was another typo. Five hundred billion dollars.
They would take a year from us. We rebuilt China. And I give me a lot of credit. By the way, I give China what I don't give credit to is Obama and past administrations beyond Obama. I don't give them credit because they let it happen. They should have never let it happen.
But now we're taking in tens of billions and billions and billions of dollars just recently. Very slow, sleepy Joe. Biden that is said of China's piracy and plunder. They're not that bad, folks. He always used the word folks. I watch it today. He used the word folks. Hi, folks. Hi. Hi. My time is up. I got to leave. Now they have more freaked out because he makes a mistake every time he speaks.
So I could just see these handlers because the handlers, like they use horses. The handlers. Or get him off now. He's been up there long enough. So they're screaming, get off, get off, sleepy. You'll get off the stage. Please, please, Joe, you're doing fine. Joe, you're doing fine. You're doing fine. And then he goes, I love being in Ohio, but he was in Iowa yesterday. Yes.
And they say, dammit, he should've left sooner. We told him, get off the stage, sleepy Joe. Sleepy Joe, get off the damn stage. But he said about sleepy Joe, about China. They're not that bad, folks. They're not really competition for us. No, they're not. Five hundred billion a year. Right. He did nothing in eight years, him and Obama. Fact I'm here because of them when you think about it.
Right. I'm here because of them. Kellyanne Conway, stand up, Kellyanne. Another warrior I just saw and I. No, but think of it as somebody saying now, look, the one point five billion dollars that Hunter who got thrown out of the Navy, who had no experience, who had none. They got a lot of money from Ukraine, but he got one point five billion from China. I got to tell you, I've been negotiating with China.
They're very tough. That is not the same group of Chinese people that I've been negotiating with. They gave me 1.5 billion. He'll make millions and millions with that. And how about saying, by the way. Mr. President, would you please take over the negotiations that President Trump is no longer handling? Guess what? You would be sold down the tube so fast and we're so close. China wants to make a deal so badly. I think they'd love to see another president.
I think would they like they would like to see another president more than. Crooked Hillary would. OK. Can you imagine if they ever took over negotiations of this deal, which got to be one of the greatest deals ever made, has to be because we started down here and they were up. There has to be. Can you imagine if they ever took over negotiations? This is what China would love more than anything else. It's not going to happen, folks, because we can't let our country go back to hell.
We can't do it. We can't let it happen. Because the Bidens got rich while America was robbed. And let me tell you, the fake news will not put it in. I watched the last debate and this weakling named Anderson Cooper saying, well, it's totally unsubstantiated. Mr. Biden. What's unsubstantiated? He is on tape doing a real quid pro quo. Sir, it's totally unsubstantiated, sir. I've never seen anything like it. Could you imagine if I did what he did?
Could you imagine if Don Junior or Eric Trump walked out of China while I was, let's say, vice president or president? Let's say they walked out of China with 1.5 billion. Do you think the press would be saying, well, it's unsubstantiated? Not something. Let me just tell you something. These people are not all of them, but these people are very dishonest people.
Very, very dishonest. But under this administration, the great betrayal is over. America is not for sale. And we're more determined than ever to drain the swamp. And that's what we're doing with these crazy people. Lot of bad things happened and a lot of bad things I think are going to be revealed because there's no way we can allow them to get away with what they would have with a normal person gotten away with. Let's face it. These are bad people.
Thanks to my tarriffs, we will soon have over 100 billion dollars from a country that didn't want to do anything with us. And I'll tell you, they started buying our farm product. You see that they started buying a lot of our product even before the deals are like.
Last year, I got our farmers 16 billion dollars because they were targeted. And the year before I got a twelve billion dollars, I just took them out of the tariffs. So we had a lot left over. And I said, Congratulations, farmers, I love you. I love our farmers. They love me. That's why they did. They targeted our farm. I said, congratulations. That's compliments of China. And they do. They want to make a deal so badly.
Frankly, honestly, they want to make a deal a lot more than I want to make a deal. That's the way it is because we're doing very well right now with China. We're replacing the NAFTA disaster with the U.S., Mexico Canada agreement, a huge win for Kentucky farmers, for Kentucky autoworkers, for Kentucky manufacturers. Unfortunately, Nancy Pelosi so far the do nothing Democrats don't want to give the people of our country a victory. It's really let it be a bipartisan deal.
I don't care. It's such an incredible deal for this country. And NAFTA was one of the worst deals ever made. Democrats need to pass the U.S. embassy.
We need their votes. Otherwise, you can pass it. And it's up to Pelosi who has to put it forward. But she's too busy wasting their time. So either pass it or go back to San Francisco and clean up your mess. The Obama Biden, his administration's Trans-Pacific Partnership would have dealt the death blow to the American auto industry, that would have been one of the great catastrophes. My first week in office, I cancel that job killing travesty.
You know all about it under our policies. Just days ago, Ford and the UAW announced a one billion dollar investment in Louisville.
One billion before my election, our leaders used the great American middle class as a piggy bank to fund their delusional global projects. They would globalists. I was elected to be president of the United States, not President of the Globe. They decimated American manufacturing to promote economic growth in foreign countries. Tell me, how is that good to try and convince you it's good? I was a very good student. I'm very like, we're all smart. We sit back, we listen and I say these people or something wrong with them.
They only Kentucky can somebody be so precise. You're right. But you are right about. They deployed our military to protect the immensely wealthy nations subsidizing their welfare states with your money. The money we spend on other countries militaries, but it's coming down. And I'm telling other countries, I'm sorry, you're going to have to pay now. I'm sorry. Pay. Pay. Hey, you got to pay. And they poured precious American blood and treasure into the Middle East.
While our great cities fell into decay and disrepair, we go in for Internet. We want rural. We'll bring it in. And we're bringing 5G into places like Kentucky that haven't been properly served.
We're bringing it in all over the Middle West, all over the country, and we're really ahead of schedule, we're doing really well. People will be very surprised soon when some numbers come out. But we're doing very well. But you are very much underserved for years and yet we're investing billions and billions of dollars in places you've never even heard of. Doesn't make sense, does it? But after years of rebuilding other nations, we are finally rebuilding our nation.
We are finally putting America first. Yet the deep state and the failed ruling class are trying to resist any changes to their failed policies of the past. They believe it is their right to rule over you and to redistribute your wealth all around the world. No, thank you. No, thank you. That's why we ended the Paris Accord. That's why we would we've ended that. I don't even want to tell you. But the sell out of the American nation ended the day I took the oath of office.
And you understand. Past leaders transform far away nations into chaotic war zones. Then they demanded that America accept unlimited migration from those terror afflicted regions. Take the people. Take the people. We defeated ISIS. We when I took over three years ago, when we took over when I took over, ISIS was all over. I defeated ISIS. You know, I didn't even know to what extent I was watching the other night. The great Lou Dobbs. And he said when Trump took over President Trump, he used to say Trump is a great president.
Then he said Trump is the greatest president since Ronald Reagan.
Then he said. Then he said, no, no. Trump is an even better president than Ronald Reagan.
And now he's got me down as the greatest president in the history of our country, including George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Thank you. We love you, too. But we didn't fight them over there, only to invite them over here, we didn't do that. We're not doing that. You see what we're going and you see what we're doing and you see it's never easy because I get hit by the swamp 15 different ways. But it doesn't matter.
We're doing the right thing to protect our communities. My administration implemented the travel ban on some of the world's most dangerous countries. A lot of people were against it. They said, isn't that terrible? Countries that have crime rates, it is so high, you wouldn't even believe it's possible. And we have a travel ban now. We don't take people from those countries. I'm sorry.
And we won a historic victory on the travel ban in the United States Supreme Court, ruled it totally constitutional or no issue. You have Democrats for totally betrayed you then on immigration. Democrats want open borders. They want to give illegal aliens free health care, free education, more advantages than our own citizens have and more benefits than our own military gets. And the Republican Party, we believe, taking care of our own citizens first is paramount. Thanks to our tireless efforts to secure our southern border.
Illegal crossings have dropped 60 percent since May. The wall is being built. It's going up rapidly. It's got a big impact, and I want to thank Mexico, we have twenty seven thousand Mexican soldiers on our border policing our border because the Democrats will not do anything to end loopholes, who would take us 15 minutes so we could end the loopholes? Think of the word loopholes. They don't want to end the loophole. If you want to keep violent criminal aliens out of your communities, you have only one choice tomorrow.
And that's a vote for Matt Bevin. Democrats are becoming more extreme and militant by the day. The Democrats plan government takeover of health care would obliterate Medicare. What are they doing? I will always protect Medicare for our nation's seniors. It's going to be protected. What they are doing is crazy. And we will always protect patients with pre existing conditions. And we will also protect you with pre-existing physicians. How about that pre-existing physician? First time I've ever said that, just thought of that.
True, because under their plan, you don't get your own doctor. You know what you get. Whatever the hell you get, that's what you get. Oh, great, doc. Fix me up, doc. You mean you want to work at my heart? Who are you, doc? I don't think so. Thanks to our campaign to combat the opioid epidemic with your governor's help. We have seen a 17 percent drop in overdose deaths in Kentucky, which is a record.
Democrats have also waged an unrelenting assault against people of faith. Anybody in here, a person of faith? Great people. The last administration threatened adoption and foster care agencies purely for their religious beliefs. Last week by administration took action to stop that Obama era assault.
It was an assault.
And Gov. Matt Bevin is a national leader on behalf of vulnerable children. And there's no better leader than him what he has done. And together, we're fighting for American orphans, foster families and the sacred rights of religious believers. And he's done a fantastic.
Virtually every top Democrat also now supports late term abortion, ripping babies straight from their mother's womb. Right up until the moment of birth. And that's why I've asked Congress to prohibit extreme late term abortion, because Republicans believe that every child is a sacred gift from God. Democrats are now the party of high taxes, high crime, open borders, late term abortion, socialism and blatant corruption. The Republican Party is the party of the American worker, the American family, the American dream, and it's the party of the great Abraham Lincoln.
We forgot that, Abraham. The incredible rebuilding of our military includes over 100 billion dollar investments all across the state of Kentucky.
I would draw our nation from the horrible, one sided Iran nuclear deal. It's not the same country. When I came in that country, there were an 18 different sites of confliction they called it. And now they're a little different, little different. We'll see what happens with Iran. And I recognize Israel's true capital and open the American embassy in Jerusalem. For years you watch as your politicians apologize for America, remember, they go around. Oh, thank you so much.
He wouldn't apologize to you, but he apologized. Now you have a president who is standing up for America and we are standing up for the people of Kentucky. The next step to victory begins tomorrow and it begins with all of you. You have to do this. Look, maybe you'll be late for work, maybe you'll be late for whatever. I don't want to know everything. Something's that I want to know. But you have to just put it off.
You have to go vote. It's so important tomorrow is so because, you know, beyond even the governorship and it's so important because you see, again, your state is setting records in the history of your state. You've never done this well economically, job wise. Unemployment, employment, factories moving in, new factories, open expansion of your car plants. You've never done this well, but you're sending that big message to the rest of the country.
It's so important. You've got to get your friends. You got to vote because if you lose, it sends a really bad message, just sends a bad and they will build it up. Here's the story. If you win, they're going to make it like ho-hum. And if you lose, they get to say Trump suffered the greatest defeat in the history of the world. This was the greatest. You can let that happen to me. And you know what?
You can't let that happen to your incredible state, Kentucky. You can't let that happen. That would be a disaster for your state as you'd be losing an incredible governor. But you're gonna have a great victory tomorrow with your support. You have to go out of. We will show the corrupt Democrats that the American people are not backing down. And we will never, ever back down. So tomorrow we need you to go out and get your friends, get your family, get your neighbors, get out and vote for Gov.
Matt Bevin and all of these great Republicans. With your help, we will lift millions more of our citizens from welfare to work, dependence to independence and poverty to prosperity. Together we will elect a Republican Congress. 2020, we're going to be elect because of their stupidity. These people are on the run and I will campaign in every one of those states that we're so corrupt. If they raise their hand. And don't forget the one hundred ninety four we got one hundred and ninety four, not one Republican left us last week and two Republicans think of that and the other three couldn't get there because of it.
But they were votes. They said they were totally votes, that airport problems. They said you can't do that. Airport problems. But then we had the Democrats, we picked up two Democrats. So we had bipartisan support. That's unusual. I always say because they're lousy politicians, they've got lousy policy, but they do stick together. That's about it. We will elect a Republican Congress in 2020. I will have a great speaker of the House and Kevin.
We're going to create a fair, safe, sane and lawful system of immigration will enact trade deals that result in more products proudly stamped with those beautiful words made in the USA. We will achieve new breakthroughs in science and medicine, finding new cures for childhood cancer and ending. Listen to this. The AIDS epidemic in America. Within less than 10 years, we've already started. Who would have felt we could have done that? We've started. And the past administration, toward the end, we had certain things that we could have done.
They didn't do anything. They didn't do anything. But we did. We have it all funded and we start to think of that AIDS within 10 years, we'll be out of this country. Nobody would have thought that was possible. We will end it right. Right. They came into my office. They were telling me about the breakthroughs that have been made. It's incredible what they do. And don't forget, right to try. By the way, where somebody who is terminally ill can now use our medicines, which they were never allowed to in the past.
So instead of traveling to Asia and Europe and all over the world or going home hopeless and dying, they can now use what we call right to try. We have the greatest doctors, the greatest drugs, greatest labs in the world. They can now go and try. And we are having unbelievable success. Unbelievable right to try.
We will chart a new era of discovery in space and someday soon we will land on. Believe it or not, the surface of the moon only to go to Mars. You know, I said we've done the moon. No, they say, sir, we landed on the moon to go to Mars. And that's what we're doing with the moon. And we are really, really advances moving along rapidly. We will defend privacy, free speech, free assembly, religious liberty and the right to keep and bear arms.
And above all, we will never stop fighting for the cherished values that bind us together as one America. We support, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. We stand with the incredible heroes and warriors of law enforcement. We believe in the dignity of work and the sanctity of life. We believe that faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, are the true American way. We believe that children should be taught to love our country, honor our history and always respect our great American flag.
Loyal citizens like you helped build this country. And together we are taking back our country. We are returning power to you, the American people. The great state of Kentucky was settled by some of the most devoted and courageous people ever to walk on the face of the earth. These tough pioneer men and strong pioneer women braved the wilderness and defied the danger to build a life and to build a home. They didn't have a lot of money. They didn't have a lot of luxury.
But they all had one thing in common. They love their families. They love their country. And they love their God.
These proud Kentucky patriots did not shed their blood, sweat and tears so that we could sit at home while others try to erase their legacy and destroy their magnificent heritage. Our allegiance is to our nation. Our loyalty is to our citizens and our devotion is to our creator. For the sake of our freedom, for the sake of our children, we are going to keep on working. We are going to keep on fighting and we are going to keep on winning, winning, winning.
We are one movie, we are one people, we are one family and one glorious nation under God. America is thriving like never before. And ladies and gentlemen of Kentucky, the best is yet to come. Together, we will make America wealthy again. We will make America strong again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And we will make America great again. Thank you, Kentucky. Thank you. Vote.
