Well, thank you very much. Hello, Las Vegas. Great to be with you. They have a big election tomorrow. We've already won the state. I like guys better.
We just take it. Take it. We won it. I like it that better. You know, the. They say they can have a lot of problems tomorrow. I hate to tell you this. I know. Have you heard? I hear their computers are all messed up, just like they were in Iowa. They're not going to be able to count their vote. They're going to tell you about health care. They're going to tell you about our military and jet fighters and missiles and rockets, but they can't count votes, speeches, scared.
They can count votes. But they're saying they may not be able to do it again. They're still trying to tell us. I called up yesterday. How are they doing in Iowa? Was that two weeks ago? They said we're getting close. Can I get it close? They'll never know, they'll never know, but I hear the same thing could happen, but I hope it doesn't, actually. I hope it doesn't. But I'm delighted to be back in a state I love, I have a beautiful building right down the road.
With the proud, hard working patriots of Nevada. You're going to say does that. You say that wrong. You got problems, you say Nevada. They go, what now? Got to be in Nevada. With your help this November, we're going to defeat the radical socialist Democrats and we are going to win Nevada in a big, beautiful landslide. Now we have some special people here. You know, the special, very special people and we celebrate one of the greatest moments in the history of sports.
Some people say it was the single greatest moment in the history of sports. It was called the Miracle on Ice. You remember that?
That was when the Russians had a team assembled that was probably, they say, maybe the greatest team ever assembled. They were unbelievable. And, you know, our guys played a practice game with them. Was it like a couple of weeks before, and I hate to tell you, the score was 10 to 3 and the USA was not on top. And this team was an incredible team and they went in and it was amazing. But tomorrow. Marks the 40 years since the United States men's hockey team defeated then Soviet Union team in the 1980 Olympics.
Incredible. That was incredible. Most of you remember that. Look at that. We got a lot of young ones, but we got a lot of people that remember that. A lot of people. And by the way, we got the Olympics coming back and coming to Los Angeles. Thank you. Thank you, President Trump. Thank you, President. Thank you, President Trump. Eight years. Eight years, twenty, twenty eight. You know what?
Unless I'm still president then, which is a distinct possible. I won't be here. You know what they'll do? I'll say, how's the Olympics going? Does anybody have a ticket for the president? Got the Olympics to come here. They'll say I want to thank and they'll thank hundreds of people, but they won't thank you, President, that I'm the one that pulled it off.
But that's okay. Twenty twenty eight Olympics is coming to Los Angeles.
It's gonna be great. And we worked with the mayor of Los Angeles. He was great. He called up and gave me a lot of help. I was president elect then because the president didn't want to get involved. He didn't want to get involved in getting the Olympics. So they called me and I was president elect, hadn't taken office. Then I got involved. And I'll tell you, they were happy we got involved. It was great. It's gonna be very exciting today.
We are thrilled to have with us 14 players of that really incredible gold medal team given a big hand. And they were amazed, they said, boy, is the big crowd, I said, it's only because you guys are coming. You know, this thing was supposed to be for this evening and they said, let me get back to Washington, do it early. So we gave you almost no notice. You have thousands of people outside. Thousands of people inside.
You see, we're in Iowa. We were in New Hampshire. You saw what happened in Colorado last night was unbelievable. Every place we go, it's the same. It's been incredible. I don't know if you saw the pictures last night of the outside in Colorado. It was incredible. It was you could have filled an arena four times and it was a big arena. And it's something. So I hated to do it at twelve o'clock, but I said, let's go, I want to get back.
We got a deal with China. We got to deal with Russia. We got a deal with North Korea. South Korea. We got a deal with the rest of the world. Get my people back. We got to get the hell out of here. Right. But we have a lot of time. I'd like Dowd to invite these incredible sport legends to join me on stage, a friend of mine and a very good golfer, by the way.
Captain BYCK Iran by my whizzed by. Whereas. Like. You know, he is. He's a he's a fake handicappers, one you say something like. Just welcome, everybody. Ironic. We happened to be here to celebrate our 40th anniversary. The Vegas Knights flew the whole team out to honor us tonight and for the weekend. We we obviously thank the people of Las Vegas for having us here. We'll be looking forward to celebrating a special time.
And it's a great honor for the president to invite us to be part of this event as well. So Vegas. Thanks for having us. But just tell them, am I a good athlete and am I a good golfer? Yes, you are. Yes, sir. Whatever you say. Thanks, Mike. That was some goaltending, right? How many did you rebuff? But how many did Jim have? Very few, but a lot of shots.
He was like a pinata. Yes. So my dad was great goaltender Jim Craig. So Jim rebuffed Cámara Jim. Great goaltending. raicaldo they didn't know what was happening. They kept shooting. He doesn't know how many you rebuffed, how many did you rebuff? Thirty seven. So let me ask, was that as goaltender, because that was incredible. Was that the greatest game you ever played? You've had a lot of great games. What was that greatness gave you?
I was slightly important. Thirty seven, thirty seven. Bill Baker. Bill, come on. Bill, back. Dave Christian. Ken Morrow, Jack O'Callahan, Mike Ramsey. Those legs took a beating. Mark Wells, Neil Brighton, John Harrington, Rob McClanahan, Buzz Schneider, Dave Cill. Phil vb., Qatar. And a great coach, an assistant coach at the time. Craig Patrick. They said four more years. 12, four years.
Let's look at it. Look at the front, look at Mike. Look at the fake news back there. It's a lot. I always say. I always say that's like the Academy Awards used to be. This year, we had a movie, they said best movie. That's the movie from South Korea. So what's that all about? The movie was made in South Korea. Look, I get along great with South Korea, but, you know, I never saw that one before.
I used to go at best foreign movie. Now we do it that way. I don't get it, but that's what it used to be. And this is really an incredible time. I'll tell you what, for a country. That's why I like to see things that we do get honored because nobody is doing what we do. Nobody can do it like us with the greatest country in the world again.
We have the greatest people. We have the greatest military by far. We've totally rebuilt our military. Jobs are booming. Incomes are surging. Poverty is plummeting. Factories are returning. Confidence is soaring like these guys. That confidence is sorry. But, you know, we do have somebody that I'd like to point out, because this team is they had a coach and that coach was a very inspirational. And I'd like to have maybe one of you come up and just say a few words about Coach Brooks, because he was very, very he was really a big.
He was a big heart for this team. Please, we'd like to say. I think it would be appropriate if you've got a few minutes that her Brooks's daughter, Kelly. He's here representing your father. And I can honestly tell you that Kelly was not ready for this at all. Her dad was an amazing coach. He was a great teacher. He was a great motivator at times. Maybe too much of a motivator. He was very demanding.
He was very difficult to play for. But trust me on one thing, and never once was a day that we didn't respect the man and never once was a day that we didn't trust him and what he was trying to do. He orchestrated the greatest sports moment of the 20th century. And the guys behind me were so proud and honored to have been a part of him and what he was able to put together. It was a perfect environment, a perfect storm sometimes not only a great coach, but great players and great people that stand behind me now.
So Kelly would like to say a couple of words. She was. Thank you. I'm honored that his legacy still is alive today and he would be proud to be here with you all. In my personal opinion. He would have been a Trump fan. So tell me one thing, one thing. So I see those tears. That means you think he you miss him and you love him, right? Was he actually a nice guy because he looked tough?
Mike was just saying he was brutal, but he was a good guy, right. Tough, but great. Thank you very much. Thanks, Kelly. Thank you all. Greatest sports story could be number one. So a lot of people, a lot of these sports experts, sportswriters have voted that as the single greatest sporting event or athletic achievement. I think so, yeah. No. They put it number one, certainly top top five in the history of our country.
And we have a lot of things that we've done to break records. We're going to go over them. But we've broken a lot of records now. But I want to thank that great team for being with us. Very inspirational. This is a big day, the anniversary. Thank you.
Thank you. In my State of the Union address, I proudly declared that we are in the midst of the great American comeback. And we're just getting started. After three years of ridiculous witch hunts and partisan Democrat crusades. By the way, I think they're starting another one. Did you see that? I see these phonies. These the do nothing Democrats. They said today that Putin wants to be sure that Trump gets elected. Here we go.
Here we go again. Did you see it? Still aren't people bored? Now, does that include because a couple of weeks go crooked, Hillary said Chelsea gaborik. Right. Tulsi Gabbard and right. She was a Russian agent, Tulsi and also Stein from Jill Stein. I don't know Jill Stein. I never met the woman. She is a Green Party candidate or was. They said she's an agent of Russia. I don't know her and I don't know Tulsi.
The only thing I know about both of them is they're not agent. They are not agents of Russia. These people are sick. That's pencil, neck, pencil, neck again. Now I just see it again. I was told that was happening. I was told a week ago they said, you know, they're trying to start a rumor. It's disinformation. That's the only thing they're good at. They're not good at anything else. They get nothing done.
Do nothing. Democrats desire that Putin wants to make sure I get elected. Listen to this. So. Does he want to see who the Democrats are going to be, wouldn't you rather have. Let's see, Bernie. Wouldn't you rather have Bernie who honeymooned in Moscow? These people are crazy. That's all they think about. They don't think about the country. They don't think about jobs. They don't think about lowering your drug costs, infrastructure. These people are crazy.
Trust me, I like. I like what we're doing and I love this country. I love this. Now and I campaigned on at the same time we want to get along with Russia. We want to get along with China. We want to get along with all these countries. Who the hell needs to have conflict? But these people are sick. They are sick people. The radical left's attempts to poison our democracy and overturn the last election have totally ended in a big, fat failure.
And by the way, you saw it today. Single best day I've ever had is the polls. And any poll that the fake news gives you, because the real numbers are higher, but any poll they give you is a fake. But Wisconsin, the great state of Wisconsin, I was leading by many, many, many points against every one of these characters. Can you believe it? We got a new one, Mini Mojaddidi during the debate the other day.
Mini bike is a box. My kid, my mini. He was a beauty. What happened to Ha? He couldn't breathe. What happened? Mike would like to know. How about that Pocahontas screaming at him? She forgot. She forgot that she lied about her own heritage. She said she was an Indian because she had high cheekbones. That was the only thing. Remember when I said I have more Indian blood in me than she has and I have none.
What I have done to the best of my knowledge. Wouldn't mind having somebody I happen to have done. And she Charlton's you went out and got a report done. One. One thousand and twenty four, you know, that means that means probably I do have more. Now, why did he bring that up when she was screaming and why? Because he was gasping for breath. I can't breathe. He's got I can't read. I can't. She's hitting me too hard.
Pocahontas. Well, she won that debate because I could not respond. That's what they all said. They all said that. That's funny. I went there. Oh, shit. It's not me that's saying it fake. Yes, you fake news people know. Now, they all said it, though. Who won the debate? Trump. You know what, the way I look at it when fake news, CNN. Whoops, there goes the camera off.
Red light just went off. So I can tell every one of them. I know him by heart. I know the operators. I know the cameraman. They're OK. They're all on our side, by the way. They're screamed at. Get that camera off. I don't want to do that. Get that camera off. It's going to be a job. All right. I'm sorry, President. But how about M.S., D.N.C. They're worse than CNN.
And they're owned by people that really are bad. I think they're very bad for our country. The the owners of Comcast. Rotten Company. Bad for our country. Very bad. They try. You know, they have all these PR things to try and keep their image nice and clean. What they do on television is so disgusting. I think in the old days, you had to have licenses for this stuff. Right. They can say whatever they want to say.
Let's see what happens over the next period of time. Bunch of dishonest people, Comcasts, terrible company, terrible people running that company. And you know what? I had Celebrity Apprentice.
I had The Apprentice on for 14 seasons, 14 seasons. And they used to come to my office and they would kiss my ass. Please sign. You know, it's an interesting story. They came and we signed, you know who signed me? Jeff Zucker. What are the only things he's done good in broadcasting? But I signed and NBC is, you know, is owned by Comcast. But I signed and they figured the show would be a total failure.
So they only signed before one sees it. You know, I was going to have it. It was go on. And then the show does started at 10:00, went to 8:00, went to 7:00, went to 5:00, went to 4:00. Went to to. It went to one I had the number one show in all of television. It was a phenomenal, phenomenal. And the final episode. Remember that with you? Remember that you remember the final we had?
I don't know. It was like one of the biggest shows of the year was a tremendous success. But here I was. I signed with NBC and they didn't even want to waste the ink on an option. Usually they have an option for not, you know, just like they didn't do it, you stupid people. So they paid very, very little for the first season. I think twenty five thousand dollars a show which is considered like that.
Good. That's OK. It was fun. I didn't know it's going to be sex, you know? Hey, just like this was successful. It's a recent. Because when I left there, Arnold Schwarzenegger and I like I artosis some very nice things, yeah, that is I'm not but the show did not exactly succeed when I left. But I had it on and they wanted me to sign for more and I said, no, I'm going to run for president.
But I'll never forget, I looked at. I didn't know anything about this threat to business. And I had an agent, wonderful guy from William Morris. And he said, Sir, I don't want you to sign. No business show has ever done well in network television. Well, it's our business. It's at the time slot. Sir, I don't want you to sign, sir. Don't sign. I said, yeah, OK. But I have a problem, I shook the hand of somebody.
I have to. And Mark Burnett was great. He was my guy. And but we shook hands. So I have to. But I agreed. You know, I didn't know that. No business, you know, business type show had ever succeeded on a network television. So he said, I don't want you to sign or break it. I said, I can't break it. Can't break it anyway. So the show I said started at 10:00, went to I went.
It became. It was the number one show all of a sudden.
And the agent called me up. And he said, sir, I remember 6:00 in the morning I was in bed. You said, sir. The show just went to number one. I'd love to see you because I think I'm entitled to more money. I said you didn't want me to do the show. Well, not really. I mean, I was OK. He said I'd really like more money. I said, Jim, I like you very much.
Jim, you're fired. Get a. Anyway, had 14 great seasons. Over about 11 years, because it's so it was so successful, they kept it. They would have run it. Remember when they did the three hours the whole night was The Apprentice. I said, wait a minute. Gone with the Wind dimensioned the movie the second time. Gone with the Wind is shorter. They had The Apprentice ready for three hours, I said, even I get to law, you can't put it up for three.
It'll leave a little bit like I want to come back next week. But they had it on for three weeks. We did fantastically with it. Comcast did great. NBC did great. They wanted me to sign for another three years. I said, no, I'm going to run for president. That was actually the time when I knew I was going to run because, you know, they were paying a lot of money and whether you're rich or not, it's still a lot of money.
I don't care how rich yachts are, lots of millions and millions of dollars. And I said, no, I'm going to run for president.
And I did that. But from the day I ran, they went from being, you know, wonderful. They were nice. They were you know, they were nice. I guess if I didn't do well with the show, they wouldn't have been nice because they weren't nice to other people that failed. You know, people that didn't have good ratings at businesses, a very simple business. If you have good ratings, you can treat them like garbage.
If you have bad ratings, you can say, sure. I really respect you so much. Get out of here. Get him, Atomiya. They're very ruthless people. But Comcast is a rotten company. They forgot totally. And they are worse than CNN. I will tell you that right now. Comcast is worse than CNN. We should call it Comcast because that's their beautiful maiden name, Comcast. They're worse than CNN. I'll tell you something about CNN.
Jake Tapper today he put out now I know you don't like him. I know who do, who likes him, who to help. I think his wife likes him, actually. I really believe she does. But let me just say it. He put out a couple of social media posts today because I never call it tweet. I call it social media because it's much bigger than tweet.
What we have Dan scavino, the great dance, Corvino we have on five sites where no one on Twitter, when no one on Facebook in the whole world and the whole world. So it's powerful. But Jake Tapper put out some things basically saying, I believe it. That's the way I read it, that the new Russian thing that started yesterday, that Putin wants to be sure that Trump, which give me a break, may be a break.
But Jake Tapper said it ain't so. And if he did say that because there were a little complex, you know, they can turn him around or when Zucker sees him and said, why did you put that? I want that deleted and I want you to do a different one. But he did say that. So I respect that because it's another hoax story. But we're standing up for the defense of our constitution, for our freedom and democracy itself.
You know that. I got to get that. Hey, Bobby. Bobby. See that guy? I love this shirt, Bobby. I don't. I look like a nice guy. Can you please welcome up even if you have about five? Come here. Come in. Come on. Come on. You got to see this shirt. You got to see this shirt. I love it. I'll to order me one that I can ride around.
Come on. Come on up here. He looks safe. He doesn't look like he's going to start a fistfight. He's a good fan, I guess. You got to see this shirt. I love it. Is there any place that's more fun than a Trump rally, right? How many rallies have you been to? 8 he said 80 rallies come up here. Come on, come on. These two guys these guys are serious. These are serious fans, right?
Are you with them? Are you with him? Are you with him? You're with him. Come on, come up here, man. Welcome. And look at this guy. You're America. Thank you. You saved me. Thank you for saving my. Wow. I just said, how long have you two been together? I figured that said, you know, we're married. He met her at the rally in Colorado. Can you believe?
Do you believe in magic? He get lucky. They both got lucky, right? Oh, it's cool. Now I just see so much stuff out here. It's genius, actually. While the extreme left has been wasting America's time with vile hoaxes, we've been killing terrorists, creating jobs, raising wages, enacting fair trade deals, securing our border, lifting up citizens of every race, color, religion and creed. As you heard, we added another two hundred and twenty five thousand new jobs last month alone, way above anticipated.
And that begs seven million new jobs since the election.
The number was supposed to be under 2 million and we added 7 million.
And remember, if I give you wrong numbers, the fake news is going to have headlines. Trump gave you, right? I mean, it's very tough. I've got to be very careful, even if I give you wrong in the wrong way. They'll say it was wrong. I said, yeah, but it was wrong in the low way. No, that's not good either.
Get it. Be exactly very precise with these characters. The Democrats don't have to be. But we have to be. We've destroyed the ISIS territorial caliphate. One hundred percent. We kill the founder and leader of ISIS. Al Baghdadi is dead. Al Baghdadi is dead. Seventeen years. And look for him. Seventeen years. al-Baghdadi, one of the first things I did when I came in. You know, he's the founder of ISIS. And when I came in three years ago, ISIS was all over the place.
And I said, you got to knock it out. We knocked it out of Syria, Iraq and other places. We really doctored 100 percent. Remember, I want to leave. I said, all right. We were at 96 percent.
The 98, the 99 percent. I said, let some of these other countries do it. When you say, right. So what happened is I wanted to leave. And they said, no, no, no, we want 100 percent. So we wait and stayed. We got 100 percent that we moved them all out of Syria, except we did keep the oil. You noticed that, right? We kept you.
So they said he left soldiers in Syria. You did. To keep the oil off, you know. Which is why we should have done in Iraq, too, by the way. I would have done that and make it a lot of money with all that oil. But you remember that whole thing, that whole I said you got to find al Baghdadi. I've been saying that actually for two years.
I had a lot of other things to do the first year. Like fight off the Democrats, these crazy Democrats with their hopes, with their hoaxers.
Think of it, if they use their genius cause they are genius at that stuff, right? They're really good. They can take nothing. They could take a perfect phone call made to the Ukrainian president who said very specifically there was no pressure. He does even know what's going on and they can take his perfect call. Thank goodness I had a transcriber. Do you agree with it? Because the fake whistleblower, the fake whistleblower said that the call was totally different than what the call was.
So when I released the call, when I released the transcripts, they die. They said, oh, we got a problem. They never thought I was going to do it, but I had no choice. I had to because I had to show they're liars. But think of it, they can take something like that, a perfect phone call or they'll take just out of thin air. They can make something up. And they ended up today a front page New York Times.
They used to go to the eighth column. That's the big column on the right. I don't know. The paper's become so small. I don't know the cabinet column, meaning they used that the eigth column was a big deal. Right? That was the big deal. Today, it's too narrow. I think they're probably. After I'm gone, they won't have any Callum's. That's why eventually they're going to support me. Eventually The Times and The Washington Post, which would be dead as a doornail after I leave and the CNN.
It'll be an obsolete business, the cable business.
Miss D.N.C. Will be out of business. You know, cable was supposed to be obsolete.
And now they're doing the highest numbers they've ever done. If an airplane goes down with seven hundred people, they don't cover it. If it's not Trump related, they don't cover it. It's got to be Trump or Trump related. So the plane goes down and it's total devastation. If a ship goes down of the Titanic. Is the Titanic equivalent went down? They wouldn't cover it unless I was on the sucker. They wouldn't cover it. The fake news would not cover the equivalent of the Titanic.
But you know what they're going to do before the election, negative, say we want to just say something with to endorse the president. You know why? Because they'll be out of business. Can you imagine if they had a cover? Many Mike, who. I don't think I think he's gone. But you know what, he'll spend another 500 million. Don't forget, I spent 70 and I one of my money.
In other words, they said and this was in The New York Times, I said it the other night in Colorado, I spent 70 m.i.a. so far has been almost five hundred million dollars in order to get embarrassed by Pocahontas. And she's mean, isn't she? You see that? Do you see the anger on her face that nervous energy is like a jumping up and down? She's a mess, bitch. No, no, she's mean. Right. Right.
She that face is just. You want to get him? She said, I get him. I want to see those agreements. Are you open up those agreements? This poor guy probably signed 100 hundred of them. And each one's a disaster. He said the open. Those agreements, nobody told me this was going to happen. So that actually said. Nobody told me. Get me out of here. You know, after the debate, he went backstage, fired a lot of people.
He said, how the hell did you get me into this thing? But anyway, at Pocahontas was really mean. But she's going to be easy, I hope it's her, she's not going to be her. She made a little comeback the other night because she took Benny Mike to the leaders. But it's not going to be. It can't be Boudette Edge Cabaye, I don't think Alfred E. Newman, ladies and gentlemen, introducing President Alfred E. Newman, but she nobody knows because you're all too young.
Nobody knows who. Alfred. Mad magazine. They all said no Howdy Doody. See, nobody knows who Alfred E. Newman is, only the real aficionados. They're the ones that they love it. But that's only 15 percent of the crowd, right? Am I right? Better than Howdy Doody. How do you do? But he's got to you know, he's got to worry about his own city. It's going to hell. So he's got to worry because that city's got a lot of problems.
I don't get I don't get the whole thing. But he's not a bad debater, I will say he's probably the best up there. Bernie is too emotional. He's screaming, going crazy. And Biden is angry. Biden is angry. Everything's anger, tea, huh? And that's what happens when you can't get the words out. No, it does. That's what happens, right? When you can't get the words out, you get angry. You get angry because you can't get the words that might happen to me someday.
Can you imagine if that happened to me? Man, would I be a bad guy. I'd be the meanest bean in history.
Now, but Biden is very angry. You know, he gets angrier and angrier and angrier. He's changed. And then you have the time here, he said, Tom Steyer. Tom Steyer, Mr. Impeachment, how did that work out? Tom, thank you very much for the great poll numbers between him and nervous Nancy.
How did that work out? This schmuck spends 250 million dollars. He ends up with one third of a percent in Iowa. But maybe, you know, that could be, Rick, because they still don't have any idea what he got. Maybe he won Iowa. They took it away from now, but he was substantially below it set. All I know is that 1 percent had an arrow left. So he spends 250 million times. I never heard of this guy.
Who is he? Where'd he get his money? Who is it? You know, he was in the coal business that you know, that this guy, this phony, is a big environmentalist. He made his money, a lot of it in the coal business. Nobody knows that. But he's a fake. Remember when he walked up to Bernie the other day? Hi, Bernie. Hi. Oh, and he was having a fight with Pocahontas, right?
This is the greatest. Mark Burnett said this the greatest reality show in history. He said you could take The Apprentice and you can take Survivor and you could take every other reality show ever made. Multiply it times ten thousand and you still don't have what we have. And even the casts, he did say this.
You got the perfect president. You got the perfect first lady.
How about the first one? You got the perfect kids, the kids, so those beautiful kids, my beautiful kids, they had such a great life before I did this. Sorry, kids. Sorry. My beautiful. She had such a great life, she had a company that was selling shoes and everything you could sell.
You just put her name on it and she said, Daddy, does it matter? I want to come to Washington and help people get jobs.
And she left the company. And, you know, when you leave a company, all of a sudden it doesn't do as well. I wouldn't say that I exactly helped talking about the wall. Other things. But she left the company, came to Washington and she said, five hundred thousand jobs. That was her goal. And she did that in the first month.
She actually did. She's gotten these great companies like Wal-Mart and many others, Exxon. She's gotten them to take billions of people.
She's now over 15 million jobs where they train people and bring them into the companies and say, grab it.
Fifteen million. And she's you know, she's got it figured out, but not most people can. But she does. But but all they do is give them heat. They work so hard. And could you imagine you'd take you take Biden's son. Can you imagine? Good idea with all these big companies that these great, great countries. I think I could get my son's twenty five board ships for millions of dollars apiece. My kids would be back.
But you know what? We don't do any of that stuff. We don't do that. So we don't do it.
The kid got three million dollars eighty three thousand a month, and he didn't have a job until his father became vice president. And speaking of vice presidents and speaking of vice presidents. OK. And speaking also of reality television, because it's the greatest show of all time. Right. Look at us. Look, we told you what last night. Little change your folks. We're going to move it up from 8 o'clock in the evening till twelve o'clock in the afternoon.
Little change, just a minor because I have to get back to Washington and work. I feel guilty. This is too much fun. But speaking of vice presidents and speaking of perfect vice presidents, you know. If you become president, the first thing you have to do is choose a really horrible, horrible vice president. So if the idiots ever want to impeach you, they have to say, I can't impeach him. Look, we got look, we have.
I have the perfect vice president of the greatest in the world. I have the greatest vice president. I got the great ones. I said, you know, I can't do that, I picked a great guy who's done a fantastic job. He's been a great vice president. But it is true. I could have picked. I'll give you names, but I don't want to do that because I don't want to hurt A-list films. But there are plenty of them out there, mostly out there.
And I don't want to do that. But Mike Pence has been great. But tell me, is it perfect casting the whole thing? And this isn't about casting. This is about real life. But when Mark Burnett said to me the other day, he said the greatest reality show of all times, times a million. And he said, that's exactly except for one thing, we work our asses off and we are doing things like nobody has ever done before.
So we took out al Baghdadi and then. We just took out two weeks ago the world's top terrorists, Kazam Solar Maini of Iran and his evil reign of terror forever. He's the father of the roadside bomb. When you see our beautiful people walking around with no legs, they're walking and trying to walk so hard and they're really in rough shape.
They have incredible the job the doctors do at Walter Reed and some of these hospitals. And they get them to a point where sometimes they really can they walk around and but it's hard and they lose legs and they lose arms.
That was Salimbeni. He's the father of the right. He loved the roadside bomb. He thought it was a great thing.
Where is he now? Salaman. And I'll tell you what. You know, he's happy about it. The people of Iran are happy and even the leaders of Iran, because the leaders of Iran were afraid of him. OK. And the fact is, America is respected again. We're winning. We're winning all over. We're winning in Washington. The Democrats keep losing their minds. That is why millions of registered Democrat voters are leaving their party to join our movement.
It's not even a partisan move. They're joining the Republican Party. We have a lot of energy in this room. They're all fighting. They're all fine. Well, look, we're unified party. The Republican Party has never been unified like it is today. I mean, I say I could say we're going to go over to the Hill. No, we're going to go over to someplace and we're going to do a rally at 8 o'clock tonight. We'd have tens of thousands of people.
That's there's never been this. You know, Ronald Reagan was great. I thought he was a great guy, great president. Did like his policy. Great. That's OK. Trade. But if he came to Las Vegas, you know, they'd have a ballroom and they'd have five hundred, maybe a thousand people. What we're doing and this isn't even I must say this. I don't want to tell you this. This is not election season. Because we're nine months away.
You know, election season is one year, two months away. We're not even in election season. And we have more enthusiasm now, believe it or not, than we had even before the election in twenty six. So we have a great gentleman and woman with us, a friend of mine. Mr. and Mrs. Sheldon Adelson, right of.
Great, great person to great people. He's got so much money, he doesn't know what the hell to do with it. He owns the Sands Hotel, that's like one of his smaller businesses. Sheldon, that's like your small business, right? He is a great guy. Is an incredible where she's a doctor and she studies addiction and drugs, drug addiction, all sorts of addictions.
And she's knows more about that subject, I think, than anybody. And she works hard and she doesn't need it. He does not need the money that she brings in. Okay. He also happens to own the paper, he owns the paper, you own the paper in town, right? They wanted like a couple of hundred million dollars too much, he said, give it to him, it's peanuts. What they'll differences of. We want to thank the Adelsons, they've been incredible fans and they love Israel.
They love Israel. I just saw him sitting there. I didn't know they were here. I just see him sitting there. Sub that. The chairman of the Nevada Republican Party, who's really been great, has been with me for a long time, and he's a very committed.
Man, make America great again. You know this. Oh, let's do a Paul quick, just quick. You know, I'll never get rid of Magga because I'm superstitious. But, you know, we just hit an all time high with the stock market. Our military is rebuilt. You just got the greatest tax cuts in history. The greatest rate regulation cuts in order stuff. So let me ask you this. So make America great again. Sort of doesn't work quite as well.
So now we have keep America great and we have the new head higher stuff like a billboard, right? I call it the billboard. It's a billboard. So let's go. Just that because I am very surprised by. We're gonna keep a boat, but I just cares if we did go to one. Make America great again. Keep America great. I would have said that's impossible, make America great again is the greatest phrase a lot of people again.
Fake news, I think will agree to. It's the greatest phrase ever used in politics. It's the greatest friends now who has the greatest phrase ever used in the history of politics and say, oh, let's go with a new phrase. But we're going to keep. So we have to keep Magga. But now we have CCAC. Now we have. So we have both. I just don't have the courage to get rid of the one who would be too disrespectful to disrespectful.
But my goal, McDonald. I want to thank you and the members of the Nevada Republican Central Committee. You're all here. Great people. And a man came here, he loves us, he's been with us, Rick Harrison of the world famous Gold and Silver Pawn Shop, Rick Harris. You better when, Michael, otherwise that's the last time I'm introducing you like that. You were up by you were doing nicely. I hear we're doing great.
And by the way, the union, I have a lot of respect for that union. Your last time at a strike in my building during the election. The only reason we would've won the state I'd like brilliantly to save three cents. I could have settled the strike before the election. I wanted to save $2. Total, that was a brilliant move. And then we had some guy running, a guy named yet. And he wasn't too good.
He didn't do too good. But we almost won the state despite I had a big strike and thousands and thousands of union guys, they hadn't you know, they wanted no one to show us. But I think that the unions are really with us and the unions have been with us, the Teamsters, so many of the unions, because I'm for the working man and woman, whether union or non-union.
Some states are all union. Some states are no union, but we get them all. And I think we're gonna have tremendous success. And, you know, a lot of the Democrats are going to ruin the health care programs that these unions have. The unions have worked hard on health care and they're going to ruin them. They're going to take away Heartwell. We're going to you can lose one hundred and eighty million people off of great private health care.
So we'll see what happens. But a lot of the Democrats want to do that, they think it's wonderful. But together, we're ability the world's most prosperous economy and the most inclusive society. That's true. Since my election, over one hundred and twenty five thousand new jobs have been created right here in Nevada, including over 40000 thousand new Nevada manufacturing and construction jobs, a 30 percent increase. The national unemployment rate is the lowest in over half a century.
And soon we're going to have. So we're going to have that be a historic number. Like so many of the others. The average unemployment rate for my administration. This is the coolest of of all is the lowest for any United States president in recorded history.
That's pretty good, that's pretty good when I'm in a debate, they're saying we're going to do this a week. I said, listen, we have the best unemployment numbers in the history of our country. African-American unemployment. Hispanic, American, Hispanic. We got a lot of Hispanic. I love Hispanic. Who in this audience is Hispanic? We're doing great. Well, we should be doing great. You have the lowest ever recorded, lowest unemployment rates ever recorded.
Asian-Americans. Likewise, the lowest ever recorded. The unemployment rate for women reached the lowest rate in 71 years. African-American youth unemployment has reached an all time historic low. People I love, people I might have helped more than anybody because of choice and accountability. The veterans unemployment rate dropped to the lowest record in Blunden lowest in history. The unemployment rate for disabled Americans has reached an all time historic low. You got to remember, they're back to their check in every word that got home.
Oh, he's right. He's right. He's right. I can't say it because I got all these maniacs back then. They're trying to fight. You know, he put the comma in the wrong place. He didn't make that word plural, therefore he lied. He lied. Now, I got to be very accurate because all these numbers they check about as a check up there in there, check it out, check on the African-American unemployment. Please, please tell me.
Please tell me it's not historic. These people are among the most dishonest human beings on Earth. Not all of them. Not all workers without a high school diploma. We have billions of people that didn't go through high school. They left. They had problems. Good problems, bad problems. Families where they don't have the money. They didn't get a high school diploma. They've achieved the lowest unemployment rate ever recorded in the history of the allies.
These are important groups of people. Half a million more Hispanic Americans now own a home. Now, Hispanic have done so good. And by the way, you know who understands the border because we are building that wall like crazy. You know, who understands? Remember, they also know if you build a wall, you lose the Hispanic vote. I said, I got to do what's right. You know, who understands the border better than anybody? You know, who understands crime at the border better than anybody?
The Hispanics understand that. And they don't want to be working and have people come and take their job. Have people come in where they can't pay for their house? Have people come in who are very, very bad people? You have some very bad people. You have murderers and rapists. And we have said all sorts of records at the border, but we're up to one hundred and twenty two miles of wall.
And it is true. The people that understand it the best are Hispanic. So thank you. And to make our country safe and to make our country safe. We've lifted 10 million people off of welfare. Median household income is now the highest ever recorded in our country. Think of that. President Bush, I say it all the time. President Bush, eight years. Four hundred and fifty dollars. President Barack Hussein Obama. Eight years. Eight years.
Nine hundred and seventy five dollars. President Donald John Trump. Three years factually less where they did the numbers, three years, including the big tax cuts that we got here and the regulation cuts three years. So you had 450, $975, it's eight and eight. Now we're down to three years. Little less three years. Ten thousand dollars.
For family a year, ten thousand a year. Our historic regulatory reduction campaign is restoring American liberty and ending the tyranny of federal bureaucrats.
I deal with them.
Not good. Called the swamp. We've ended the war on American energy, lowering utility bills, reducing prices at the pump, reducing your prices. Part of that number is all of the money that we save at the pump. An electric. I also recently took action on an issue. Nevada has been dealing with for over 30 years, Yucca Mountain.
You know, Yucca Mountain. My budget stops funding for the licensing of waste storage at Yucca Mountain so that we can focus on positive solutions and for much better reasons and alternatives. Why should you have nuclear waste in your backyard? Why should you have nuclear waste in your backyard? I won't say which countries, but you know what other countries do. I will not say which ones. They put it on a ship. They floated out into the middle of the ocean.
They find a nice deep spot. They dump it at sea and love it. But we would never do that for environmental reasons. We are reversing decades, so you come out, you're OK. Please. OK. Just relax. You have somebody sheltered, you have somebody at your newspaper back there who can write Yucca Mountain, please. He'll call up. Yucca Mountain is OK. That's the end of that. That's the end of that. So Yucca Mountain, you're in great shape.
Maybe they could finally report it properly, but we're reversing decades of calamitous trade policies. For years, Washington politicians took money from lobbyists, global corporations and corrupt special interests to ship our jobs and factories and all of this stuff and all of this wealth, they sold out well, they shipped it overseas and to other countries. America lost one in four manufacturing jobs following the twin disasters of Dafter and China's entrance into the WTO, the World Trade Organization. Probably an even worse deal for us than NAFTA.
That's possible, but under my administration. The great betrayal of America is over. America is no longer for sale. Last month, we ended the nasta catastrophe, and I signed the brand New U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement USMC a fee. We played the song YMCA because that's the only way I remember. Just think of the song YMCA. Think of this song and you'll remember that US MCI is a gigantic victory for farmers, ranchers and manufacturers all across the great state of Nevada.
I also took the strongest ever action to confront China's massive theft of American jobs. Our strategy worked. Last month, we signed a groundbreaking trade agreement. Probably the biggest agreement of any kind ever signed with China that will defend our workers, protect our intellectual property and boost American exports by a lot. China will be buying 250 billion dollars worth of goods from us now and 50 billion from our farmers. My guys wanted 16. I said make it 50.
My guys wanted 16. They got China up to 20. I said, nope, gotta make it 50. Then I said, the Chinese got a billion and a half people. What difference does it make? They said, you're right. 50 billion. I don't think our farmers can produce that much, but we're going to soon find out they're going to buy very large tractors.
After years of building up other countries, we are finally rebuilding our country. We are finally putting America first. I know you have Washington Democrats more thoroughly sold out the American people than the issue of immigration. Before I came into office, the far left policy of open borders allowed deadly drugs to flow freely into our country, poisoning our children, including right here in a very, very big way.
The great state of Nevada, Washington Democrats put the needs of illegal immigrants before the well-being of American citizens, you know, that you've been complaining about for a long time. It's one of the reasons you voted for Trump. They want to let anyone from around the world simply walk across the border and then they want to give them a lifetime of free welfare, of health care, of lots of other things, including education, all paid for by the taxpayers of the United States.
Illegal immigration costs Nevada taxpayers take of it. More than 1.6 billion dollars every year over one thousand five hundred dollars per household for the amount of money Washington Democrats want to spend supporting illegal immigrants. We could rebuild every city. All of these distressed areas in the United States, throughout our country. The money we spend. It's not even thinkable. And don't forget, when we say calm, like in California, the clown, he's just come, come, we'll give you free health care.
People that weren't even thinking about coming. That's why we have caravans of people that we're turning back. Mexico's been great, by the way. They gave us twenty seven thousand soldiers on board. But when a governor, nice guy actually is a nice guy, we just got to explain the facts of life. He's a nice guy. Oh, doctor, please, doctor. Doctor in the house, please. MedicarePlus. A doctor. Take your time.
Thank you. We have plenty of time. Take your time place. You know, a lot of these people have been here for three days. It's a lot. Those front row people are tough. Take your time. Take your time. Thank you, everybody. Thank you, doctor. Thank you. That's true, they get here, so they stand and sit and. Sometimes days early in Colorado, they're there three, four days early, it's tough, it's tough.
And we work at. And make sure that you have everything you want. Number one, we cover the facts and number two, we want to have a good time because we have to have a good time. You have to have a good time. But things like that happen, happen a lot because at after 2, 3 days, it's not easy.
And these are strong people.
I'm not going to fight any of them. OK. Amazing people. Thank you very much. Thank you.
Under my administration, we're finally taking care of our own citizens first, including millions and millions of legal immigrants who follow our laws, pay their taxes, lift up our society and are entitled to a government that protects their families and protects their communities. Every day, Democrats open border policies are harming and killing innocent people. You know what's happening, you know what's going on in this region alone last year. ICE officers and their pictures, this strong, tough patriots.
If we didn't have them, they removed thousands and thousands of 13 gang members a year and plenty of those who else is going to do it.
ICE officers arrested over 5000 criminal aliens charged or convicted of dangerous offenses, including robbery, rape and even murder.
Many murders. In western Nevada, an illegal alien was charged with robbing and brutally executing four victims last year right here in Las Vegas, three MS 13 gang members abducted a man, tied him up with his shoelaces, shot him repeatedly and hacked him to death with a machete. You know exactly what I'm talking about. It's right here in. Your place in Las Vegas. Right here. They hacked him to death, tied up and hacked him to death.
Yet left wing politicians oppose all detention of illegal aliens, even convicted criminals and murderers, and they support deadly sanctuary cities. You know, I say this all the time and I just. How to hell? I mean, where are they coming from? I don't get it. Right. Seriously, I don't get it. Sanctuary cities imperil American lives by releasing dangerous criminal aliens directly into your communities. If you want to shut down sanctuary cities, if you want to protect your family and your loved ones, you must vote Republican in 2020.
And you have some great ones here, Michael. Thanks to our tireless efforts to secure the border, we have reduced illegal border crossings eight straight months in a row.
And as the wall gets longer, it gets easier and easier. Remember when the Democrats were saying you don't need a wall, you know, two things that never change, right? All these computers, they said use drones. Oh, great. We'll fly over drones. Watch the people pour in by the thousands. That's great. Use drugs. You know, before I came along, they all wanted to well, they just did not build it. They had no clue.
They had no clue. They had no clue. They had the money that they had. They actually gave the money back, but they had no clue. But as soon as they came in and I said WorldWar Wall, they went against and I made a terrible, terrible mistake. You know, they said, never admit mistakes. I do. But I'll admit a mistake.
Now, I should have said we will never, ever, under any circumstances build a wall. They would have given me so much money for a wall. They would have forced me to build it. I made a terrible mistake. Right. Terrible mistake. So if it ever happens again, which it won't. This wall is one of a kind. We'll say we will not build a wall. And they say we demand that you build the wall and it would have been so easy.
Illegal crossings are down 75 percent since last spring and we have ended catch and release and horrible. We catch him? No, sir. They come over. Could be a killer. Murder, rape as they come over, we can't do anything. We have to be politically correct. We catch a. We then say, what, your red dress? They don't know. They don't even know the country in many cases, where do you come from? We don't know.
And they mean it, but some are very serious criminals. So we can jump, we take whatever they could take, which is nothing. And then we had to release them in our country. We can't bring them back. And then we have a system of judges, thousands of judges all over the place. You got to be like Perry Mason and everybody, every illegal that comes in, they have the lawyers. You know, the lawyers beat them.
They get fees, they get paid fees. But we're breaking the system. No more catch and release, you think? That was his. And the big thing is that 30 foot. And this wall is built exactly to the specifications of Border Patrol. Totally, and Border Patrol has seized the largest amount just recently of deadly narcotics ever recorded, the largest amount.
We've deported record numbers of gang members. We've done more to secure the border than any administration in history. We are, as I said, building the wall faster than ever, faster and bigger than anyone thought possible. They can't believe we're getting it done. We'll have over 500 miles of wall built sometime next year. Five hundred by. WASHINGTON Democrats have never been more extreme than they are right now. One hundred and thirty two congressional Democrats have now signed up for Bernie Sanders takeover of health care that would strip 180 million Americans, many of them in this room of their private coverage.
Remember President Obama? Remember he said you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan. Twenty eight times he lied. So we should impeach him. We should impeach him. We're going to impeach him. We'll do a belated impeachment. We're going to do it. A belated 28 times. You can keep your doctor, right. Remember, you could keep your doctor. You could get. Unfortunately, when they found out you can't keep your doctor, he said I was just kidding.
Now we should impeach him. We'll do a belated impeachment fact, those you haven't. So you have to be very careful when you say impeach him because you know what they do. They go back and they write. They write. President Trump said that Obama should be happy, but he's not in office. And so therefore, they cannot be. He doesn't know what he's talking about because he's not in office. So therefore, they can't. So I have to be very careful.
That's why I used the word belated impeachment, belated meaning. I'm just kidding.
OK. They do it all the time. They had it the other day, I said bring back on with the wind. Right. I said the movie, I said a little bit up here, but I said the movie the other day in Colorado, I guess I said, Huh? South Korean movie world. You know, they say, ladies and gentlemen, the winner of the Academy Award is and as I wrote a movie made in. South Korea.
I said, what's this all about? And I deal with them, they like me. We're helping them a lot. They're killing us in trade. You know, they beat us in trade and then they win the Academy Award for a free good movie. But we redid that trade deal, but the other day they got me on this one, too. I said, whatever happened to Gone with the Wind?
That beautiful movie, Vivien LEIGH Clark Gable. Right. Whatever happened? Bring back Gone With the Wind. And some of them wrote.
He doesn't know that that movie was made like in 1936. So anybody sitting is as fake, It is fake news that fakers. But now anybody sitting there reading this saying, man. Trump can't be that smart. You know, he said bring back Gone with the Wind, that's it. Old movie. It's an old classic. Bring back, make what I say is make great movies.
You know, not this computerized crap, computerized garbage. And I was never a fan of Brad Pitt. I will tell you. No, I thought he was a stiff. He was like a stiff. You know, it's like a boring guy. All of a sudden he wins the academy. Well, it's affecting their ratings. Aren't so good at the Academy Awards. You know, when that stuff when they started attacking us, their ratings went right down the tubes.
You know, I told somebody the evening newscast, you know, they're terrible for conservative people and they're crooked. They're absolutely dishonest. I said to one of the big broadcasters are friendly with them. I said, you know, if you ever did a conservative newscast instead of have you know, you got ABC, it's terrible. Terrible. NBC is just absolutely atrocious. And they do badly. You know, that a lot of people are watching. They used to when we had the late great Walter Cronkite in these legends.
Right. But ABC is terrible and NBC is terrible and CBS is terrible. They're all the same.
And I said, you know, your ratings stink. If you would do a newscast that's conservative. I'd get him a host. I could recommend guys right now. I'd get my house. We'll call up, we'll call up. Don't take Sean HANNITY away from us. Don't take our show. That's my problem. I don't want to take away any of our people. You get a Pete said, you get a Jesse Waters, you get I mean, I could name so many ever.
Right. And you put him on that broadcast, their ratings would go up fivefold. But they don't know that they're stupid. This stupid. They're stupid. Their ratings would go through the roof. But they would rather have a failed broadcast that nobody watches, then put on a conservative person and lift the ratings five times. They would rather have a fit just like they were hoping seven months ago. You know, we had a little skid and they were hoping the market would crash because they would rather lose their money or big parts of it and have a really horrible market on the basis that we, not me, we could not be elected on November 3rd.
This is how evil that is. This is how crazy they're. They've gone crazy. I guess you call it Trump Derangement Syndrome. But if they ever did a conservative broadcast, meaning very fair, very honest. But it's almost like what I say, that it's almost like a fair broadcast just live here, because that thing would be the hottest show, but they don't realize it. And if they do, they probably would do it anyway because they don't want to go away from what they're doing, which is crazy because it is they are doing very poorly while the social.
And socialist Democrats are trying to destroy American health care and your Social Security, they're putting it at risk by administration, is protecting your Social Security. Remember they said four years ago in the debates? And you had this crazy woman. I mean, I hate to mention her name, I did it, you know, yesterday I threw all the road hater. She's a 0 0. Got 0 0 television personality 0, A.B. Stoddard. Whoever that is, she said Donald Trump lost all of his debates.
I want every debate. And maybe I don't a baby once somebody, but I went with tremendous enough. He says you always win if we try. I'll tell you that. And we're winning. But this crazy woman who's got zero going 0. She said Donald Trump lost his debates, that he won. You know, she was talking about how badly Beny Mike did. So she said, well, Donald Trump, no, I won every single debate.
I want him against crooked Hillary. I want him in the primaries like 15 or 16 debates. And for some reason, you know, sometimes you just it just it's not a big deal. Nobody watches or nobody cares. Nobody even knows who she is. I just better famous. She's nothing. She's not like she's got no talent. Got nothing. She probably got a little drive. That's how she keeps getting on television. Other people don't have her drive.
But you know what I said, that's really unfair. So I took out the polls. Time magazine, Drudge, good guy. Drudge. Drudge took out a lot of different things. And we put up the Drudge poll, the Time magazine poll and many others. And some of them had me down like a ninety one percent. And then they'd have many people. And I can't really show it because many of those people are now great friends of mine.
Some of them are great Republican senators. I'm not going to show results, but I'm holding it up. Just quickly glancing. I caught a glancing blow, but we won the debates. And I have this fake news person saying Donald Trump did very poorly in the debates. I won every debate easily. I never did it before. Remember my first question? I said Rosie O'Donnell, it was one of my best days. Rosie O'Donnell, who violated the campaign finance laws as badly as anybody I've ever seen.
And nothing happens to her. And yet, Inish, why violate that he made little mistake and they wanted to destroy him, so we pardoned him.
By the way, he made a mistake. Rosie O'Donnell That was a massive violation of the campaign finance laws. But Dinesh.
Dinesh D'Souza, they wanted to put him in jail. I don't know, I think he might have even gone to jail for a period of time for doing something that was really very understandable. Rosie O'Donnell. Five times what she did is incredible. Nothing happens. And then she gets on and says, what a bad guy. I'm not a bad guy, but it's really a disgrace. You know, it's a disgrace. I'm glad they didn't do anything with it, frankly, because you know what to do.
For something like that. But you know what? How did they take. We have two sets of justice in this country. It's no good. It's no good. It's no good, you know? You know, the thing we're working on right now, we're trying to get fairness for a certain person who's been treated very unfairly.
A man who a man who had a juror who was a radical anti-Trump person. And she didn't say that when she went up there and she became the foreperson of the jury. And she did terrible things and said terrible things. And, you know, they caught her when he was convicted. And then a statement was made. She started jumping up and down screaming. Yes. Yes. And started telling everybody. They said it wasn't she just a juror?
The woman was totally biased. How do you do this? So I fight. Look, I fight a lot of times it's not worth it. But I got to fight for fairness. I got to fight. Got fight for Fenner's very unfair system. I guess it's called a swamp. I just you know, when I said drain the swamp, it was a nice phrase. I never liked the phrase, you know, when I was campaigning, somehow the phrase came up.
Sir, I think we have a phrase drain the swamp. I said, I don't like it. That's too hokey. But one day I was in a big arena, twenty 25000 people packed before the election and I said, and we will drain the swamp, the place went crazy. I said, Why?
You never know. You never know. Frank Sinatra said his best song. I won't tell you which one, because I'll ruin it for me. But his best song is the song that he thought would never make it, the song that he liked the least.
But he said that's the one that was the most successful that the people like you never know. So I said, drain the swamp and the people went crazy. I said, well, let's try that again.
And the next time I did it again and again and again, I only didn't know how disgusting and dirty the swamp is. And a lot of the media is a big part of the swamp.
So my administration is protecting your Social Security or Medicare and is fighting to give you great health care. We're defending your right to keep your doctor and your plan. We're defending that, right. You're going to have that right back. We're going to cancel that Obamacare. We could win the case and we're going to give you great health care. And we're making health care better and much cheaper while premiums more than doubled in the last five years before I took office.
We're managing it very well.
We got rid of the individual mandate by far the most unpopular thing where you had to pay a lot of money for the privilege of not having to pay for bad health care. Right. We got rid of it and it was upheld in the Supreme Court.
What we did, we get sued. Everything we do, if we move it, we take 10 steps right or left.
We get some. And we're now offering plans that are up to 60 percent less expensive. We're going to make health care a big part of this campaign.
We're protecting people with preexisting conditions that we always will. That's why if we are successful, you know, we're the Supreme Court to try and get rid of this. The caucus. It's a caucus. Known as Obamacare. But we're running it much better than they did. Remember when they had this was the greatest $5billion Web site, 5 billion was supposed to cost five million. I have a son at home. He's 13. He's a genius with computers.
Hi, dad. What's up, dad? Dad, get out of here. Hey, listen up, the president of the United States. I'll talk to your dad. Come on, dad. Can't you see I playing with my computer? The guy talks to me. He's working with his computer. This guy's a genius. You know, they grow up with like walking. Right. But he's looking at me. I could have given him their health care site.
He would have done it for nothing and it would have been better than what they have. Come on, dad, I'm busy, dad. What a want. What do you want? Wow. Baron Wow. Wow. You're going to like. He's gonna like that. He's a he's a good boy. He's a tall boy, I'll tell you that. Just turned 13. He's up. Say hi, Barron. How you doing? Now he's good, but they're great with the computers.
They spend five billion, OK? It was going to cost 50. It was going to cost five. It was going to cost 50. There was going what was the final number? Five hundred. The number was still the number that they spent. Five billion dollars. Right. It ended. It still doesn't work. They spent five billion dollars. Right. And they spent $500 billion on all of the problems it caused. And we've really straighten it out, but it's still lousy health care.
Obamacare. And it's really not Obamacare anymore, because when you get rid of the individual mandate, it's no longer Obamacare.
But we're going to terminate it. We're going to give you your preexisting 100. Otherwise, I won't do it. We're going to give you a brand new pre-existing and we're going to have a great health care that's much less expensive.
And we're fighting to stop surprise medical bills. And Baron's going to be very happy that I signed an executive order imposing price transparency, because when providers are required to show their prices, those same prices fall very fast. You know, the man that does this very professionally is great into the health care business. And you have to be careful when you say it. But, you know, it was just a very strong statement. You said, sir, price transparency in hospitals where you can bid it out and you can look at the prices right now.
You can't see if you go to ask, but they won't even tell you how much it's going to. They operate and then they'll give you a bill and you say, oh, my God, I had no idea. Could be. They take blood. We have one person blood. Thirty nine dollars, another place. The exact same thing. Two thousand five hundred dollars. Take blood. A blood test once. Thirty nine dollars. One's two thousand five hundred dollars.
The same tests, maybe the thirty nine dollar test is better. Who the hell knows? But it's crazy. Price transparency. And he looked at me goes. And he's a real pro. One of the top countries hit, sir, and nobody wanted to do it because it's a little bit controversial. And a lot of the drug companies don't exactly love it. The hospitals don't love it. But I got to do what's right for the people. I don't care.
I'm not. I got to get. But he looked at me, he said, and this is why I did it. It was one phrase, you know, you have to do when you're not going to do some. Then somebody hits you with a perfect phrase. He said, Sir. Price transparency is bigger than health care. I said, what do you mean by that? He said you will see numbers that far outweigh health care. Hospitals, doctors.
He said you'll be able to. Price out everything you'll be able to see. Costs, he said. Price transparency, you know, people you've heard about this for 15, 20 years. No president has the guts to do.
And it probably means I won't get campaign contributions from certain people, but I'm not going to get them anyway.
What the hell difference is that make? I don't want to. I don't. I got to do what's right. You know, we're here for a short period of time. Even if it's a long period, it's still a short period. And we got to do so. Price transparency is a big deal. He said it's bigger than health care. Think of that. Bigger than health care. So let's see what happens. But that will kick in.
Unfortunately, that kicks in after the election because we're going through the final stages with going through a statutory process, unfortunately. So think of it, we're going to win.
But let's say let's say the fake news can give me enough phony stories, enough bad stuff that we don't make it. The new president will get all the credit for price transparency and he won't even know what the hell it is. And I took the. Is that something? But we're going to win. We got to win for that reason alone.
We've approved a record number of affordable generic drugs, which are just as good as the name brand drugs, but a fraction of the cost and that was another one, tremendous political pressure to think of it. You own Bayer Aspirin, you own all these name, name, brand drugs that make so much money. And then a guy comes along, said, I want to make 20 forms of aspirin. They're exactly the same. Exactly. But they don't have a big name on it.
Exactly. Is good. I don't see a better I don't say worse. They're exactly the same. You know, people still they want to go out and buy the name, you know? I do. I do. You know, because it's just because we're stupid. No, it's true. They're exactly the same. We're approving so many of the generic drugs. A record number nobody's ever approved so much. The drug companies hate it. They hate it never happened like what we doing.
We also took down the trial periods from 12 years down to five or six years because they'd have a new drug. The thing was obsolete by the time we got approved. We've passed a really spectacular thing that they've been trying to get for 40 some odd years, right, to try. So you don't have to now go off again. Hopefully nobody in this room has those kind of problems. Right to try. And so now you go and you sign a waiver and you get everything and it's great if you're terminally ill, if you're very, very sick.
You're not going to make it. And you know why they didn't do it? They wouldn't approve it because they didn't want to be sued. And they said, no, this could be dangerous. They said the people are terminally ill. They going to die? Let him use the experimental drugs. Don't wait because they have another four or five years before they can come onto the market. And it turned out we are having such unbelievable results. And you know what else?
Some of those drug companies are now like it, that they fought me like crazy because it's really showing if it works there, it's really showing that it works. It's pretty amazing. Right, to try.
I hope you don't have to use it. We're combating the opioid epidemic. Drug overdose deaths have declined for the first time in nearly 31 years. And I've launched doing and this is really something brand new initiatives combating kidney disease and combating Alzheimer's disease.
We've made a lot of progress. We've made a lot of progress. shelden And we're pursuing new advances in the neonatal research to care for America's youngest patients, our babies and breaking all records. In so doing, all of the radical Democrats in the presidential debates have declared their unlimited support for extreme late term abortion, ripping babies straight from the mother's womb right up until the very moment of birth. This is why in my State of the Union address. Did you like it?
It's a different kind of address. You know, we can go lots of different ways. Presidential, not presidential. That was presidential. Totally. It about three people standing here. But I asked Congress to prohibit late term abortion of babies because Republicans believe that every child is a sacred gift from God.
The Democrat Party is the party of high taxes, high crime, open borders, late term abortion, socialism, blatant corruption and the total obliteration of your very, very important Second Amendment.
The Republican Party is the party of the American worker, the American family, the American dream and the late great Abraham Lincoln, which everybody forgot. Republicans are fighting for citizens from every background, every community and every single walk of life. We are the party of boundless optimism, excitement, energy and enthusiasm. We are wealthy, right? We are. Are we enthusiastic? You know how many of these I've done in the last four days, people say, where the hell do you get your energy?
I say, well, the truth is I like what I do. And if we weren't getting the results, I wouldn't like it. If we weren't getting the results, if I didn't see the results, I wouldn't like it at all. We're welcoming Americans of all parties and political persuasions to join our incredible movement to make America great again.
We're a very big party. We are the party of big ideas for the future. Republicans are fighting for school choice because no parent should ever be forced to send their child to a failing government school. I passed criminal justice reform to give former prisoners a second chance at life was never going to happen. We got it done. This could not have been done by anyone but the Republican Party and ourselves. You know, the Democrats have tried for years. They couldn't get it done.
We got it done to uphold the rule of law.
We are confirmed. And this is something they say most important thing you can do, judges. I say most important thing is defense. Second, just judges, a record number of 217 federal judges who will interpret the constitution as writ. And we have appointed two great new Supreme Court justices, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Cavin. I recognized Israel's true capital and opened the American embassy in Jerusalem. And we recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. We have invested 2.2 trillion dollars to rebuild the United States military, including more than one hundred and thirty million dollars for Nellis Air Force Base right here.
And we just created these six branch of the American armed forces, the space for 72 years, 72 the Air Force was seventy two years ago. We just did a brand. Just a big deal, isn't it?
Think of it, a branch, the Army, Air Force. Think of it. We did a branch for years. You watch says your politicians apologize for America. Now you have a president who is standing up for America, and we are standing up for the people of Nevada. At stake in our present battle is the survival of our nation. If you want your children to inherit the blessings that generations of Americans have fought and died for to secure, then we must devote everything we have toward victory.
In November of twenty, twenty, November 3rd, November 3rd. Only this way can we save the America we love and drain the Washington swamp once and for all. 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 to create a fair, safe, sane and lawful system of immigration. We will continue to enact new trade deals that result in more products proudly stamped with that very beautiful phrase made in the USA.
We will achieve new breakthroughs in science and medicine, finding new cures for childhood cancer and ending the AIDS epidemic within nine years in America.
And we will land the first woman on the moon and become the first nation in the world to plant its flag on Mars. We will defend privacy, free speech, religious liberty and the right to keep and bear arms. And that is under siege, in case you haven't noticed. You know, your Second Amendment is under siege. Just don't worry. Long as I'm here, they're not touching it. Above all, we will never stop fighting for this.
So true. But we will never stop fighting for the sacred 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 they are heroes. We love them of law enforcement. We believe in the dignity of work and the sanctity of life. We believe that faith and family, not government bureaucracy, are the true American way.
We believe that children should be taught to love our country, honor our history, and to always respect our great American flag. And we live by the words of our national motto in God We Trust. From Carson City to Reno to right here in Las Vegas, we stand on the shoulders of red blooded American patriots who poured out their heart, sweat and soul to secure our liberty and to defend our great, beautiful, lovely freedom.
Freedom. Freedom. Freedom. Nevada was founded by pioneers and prospectors, miners and cowboys who came the frontier, raised the mighty Hoover Dam that's a beauty, transformed the barren desert into a shining oasis, lit up the lights of the Las Vegas strip and helped to make this the greatest nation ever to exist on the face of the earth. And we are making it greater than ever before. Proud citizens like you helped build this country. And together we are taking back our country.
We are returning power to you. The American people, with your help. Your devotion and your drive. 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 movement, one people, one family and one glorious nation under God. America is thriving like never before. And ladies and gentlemen of Nevada, 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 very much, everybody. Thank you. Thank you, Nevada. Thank you, Las Vegas. We love Las Vegas. Thank you, everybody. Thank you.
