Just plain and simple. You inside? And in my dreams, I have kids, too. I sometimes see you sound so. And I want to use. To see the sun. Until you time and time again. How much like. Sometimes I feel my heart. Oh. Oh. Just got to. Are you somewhere feeling lonely or is someone loving you? Tell me. So. Don't go. So. Ladies and gentlemen, the president of the United States, Donald J.
To the hills of Tennessee. Across the plains. Thank you. Thank you. Hello, Milwaukee. Oh. Well, thank you very much, and I'm thrilled to be back in Wisconsin, where we had a very big night a few years ago, you remember that very big day. That they said Donald Trump has won the state of Wisconsin. And since then, we've produced everything we said. And more and more before it was talk, I said, I'm going to do this.
We're going to take care of your trade. What we've done with China now on Wednesday, we sign that's tomorrow. What we've done with the U.S. Embassy a while we've done with Japan 40 billion dollar trade deal that a lot of it has to do with the farmers.
South Korea, you got to love Trump. You got to love him. And you're a great Green Bay Packers are playing San Francisco. So do we have any Green Bay Packers fans here? That's why you have a great quarterback who's a good guy. The guy, as we begin the year, our economy is booming, wages are rising, poverty is plummeting, crime is falling and America is the envy of the entire world.
And then our opponents say we're not going to win. Let's impeach President Trump. That's the greatest economy in our history. Our military has been totally rebuilt. Let's impeach him.
But we've created 7 million jobs since the election, including more than 1 million manufacturing and construction jobs. Nobody thought that was possible. And we will soon be replacing the NAFTA catastrophe, one of the worst trade deals in the history of the world, frankly, with the incredible U.S. embassy, a Canada, Mexico, a giant victory for Wisconsin workers, farmers and dairy producers, a tremendous victory.
And we may get that all taken care of this week or next week. Just needs one more vote and we'll get that out of the Republican Senate. Republican Senate will be great. Tomorrow, we'll also be signing our phase one trade deal with China, massively boosting exports of products made and produced right here in the great state of Wisconsin. So after years of devastating defense cuts, we have fully rebuilt the United States military to a point that it has never been before and it's now more advanced, more lethal and more powerful than ever.
And last year, our great American warriors, because that's what they are and they love it. I got to tell you, I know. They love it, right? They love they love doing that. They wouldn't trade places with me under any circumstance. They wouldn't trade places with all of our great Wisconsin politicians. They want to be a military warrior, and we don't want them for that. We want them doing what they're doing. But our great warriors carried out a daring nighttime raid and terminated the founder and leader of ISIS.
The animal known as al Baghdadi is dead and the wicked caliphate is 100 percent destroyed. And I will tell you, when we took over a little less than three years ago, ISIS was all over the place. Now the caliphate is 100 percent destroyed. Remember what I wanted to leave when it was at 98 percent? I said let some of the other countries finish it off. We're going home, right? They all said, oh, no, sir, please finish it off.
So we finished it off. It's 100 percent. A few days ago, we took bold and decisive action to defend American lives and deliver American justice. At my direction, the United States military launched a flawless precision strike that killed the world's number one terrorist number one towers. You know, that is Sam Solomon. Number one terrorist in Solomon, he was responsible for murdering and wounding thousands of Americans.
It was actively planning new attacks, but we stopped them cold. And frankly, they already started the attack, as you saw in Baghdad on our very large embassy in Baghdad, that was already started. And I said to our generals, get there now. We don't want to have another Benghazi. When my watch on any watch, they said, sir, we'll be there tomorrow, is it? Nope. You gonna be there right now?
Get him over there now. There are thousands of soldiers who are soldiers. You take a look at that crowd. That was not protesters. They were soldiers and they were surrounding our embassy in Baghdad. And all of a sudden they see these beautiful, very expensive, I will tell you, brand new Apache helicopters roaming over.
And then they see our great military, you saw them in the plane, right? Some of them were getting out of their pajamas. They were. I said, don't worry about it. I said, we won't put that on. But they were sitting there and they were calling a roll call in the plane. Right. And it was a beautiful sight. And these guys were better than Tom Cruise at his best. So tomorrow with the fake news, here's your headline.
Hey. You know, we have thousands of people outside wanting to get in, they can't because you people got here first. So here's your headline tomorrow. Protesters disturb the rally. One protester, a very weak voice. You know, if you people wouldn't go crazy every time you see something, you'd go right through and nobody would even know she was there. Now she's gone home to mom where she will be in big trouble. Because I guarantee you that mom voted for Trump.
And in 10 years from now, when I run yet again. She'll be voting for Trump to. I'm only kidding, I'm only kidding. We drive them crazy, we drive them crazy. They say, you know, he's not leaving, don't you? He's never leaving. They say he's going to win. He's never going to leave. You know, these people. It's called Trump Derangement Syndrome. It really is. They are. They are.
Sokha, you know, what they don't know is that for any reason, after five years we do leave, which we will, because I believe in that stuff. Right. But you know what's going to happen to their industry? They're all going to die and fold up, going to be very boring out there, very boring.
That's why I say at some point every single one of them will be endorsing Donald Trump.
But crazy Bernie Sanders and the Washington Democrats, by the way, Bernie, is surging, Bernie, Bernie is surging. But the Democrats are outraged that we kill this terrorist monster, even though this monster was behind hundreds and hundreds of deaths. That's true. Hey, speaking of protesters, have you seen what's happened in Iran? The protesters are on our side. First time ever. In fact, they put this big American flag on the street and the Iranians, thousands and thousands of Iranians were supposed to walk on it and trample it and step and beat the hell out of it.
Every one of them went around that flag.
They like they like you. I'm just your representative, but they like us. They like us. They haven't seen anything like that in a long time. They went around. Did you see it? They went around the flag. And you want to touch it? They love America. They love our country. That's called progress. That's called progress. But the Democrats are doing everything possible to disparage what we did with the hit on this monster. You know, many of the young men and women you see walking around without arms or without legs and without were done by Sulaimani.
That's what he loved. He loved the roadside bomb. That's what I love. Thousands and thousands and thousands in Iraq and Afghanistan. Roadside bombs. He was the king of the roadside bombs. Great percentages of people don't have legs right now and arms because of this son of a bitch.
The Democrats should be outraged by suleimani's evil crimes, not the decision to end his wretched life fishing. Well, he was a general. He was there as he was that. You know what? No one. He wasn't supposed to be there. He was a designated terrorist by President Obama who didn't do anything about it. As usual. As usual. They don't do anything they designate and they don't do anything about. He should have been killed 20 years ago.
Now, here's the story with the Democrats. If I didn't kill him and let's say we lost three, four, five embassies or bases or thousands of people or hundreds of people or two people were killed, they would have said Trump should have taken him out. Anything we do, they go the opposite. So we kill him. And that was precision. Some people thought it went much too fast. Went too fast. So we kill him and they say, what a horrible.
We didn't kill him. That's a what a horrible thing. Right. You know, with the war, we're building a wall. You know that, right?
And by the way, they think they caught me and they never catch us. Because, you know, Mexico's paying for the ball wall. You know that you'll see that. So what about Mexicans? It's driving them crazy. Now they say, OK, build on the wall. But Mexico didn't say Mexico will pay. And here's the thing. Here's the thing. You'll see that it'll come out. We'll do it sometime during the debate or maybe before our debate, the real debate that people are going to watch the people of Iraq because nobody's watching.
You know. They haven't been doing great on the debates, I have to tell you. But we are building this wall where over 100 miles right now we're going to be expanding the line. You have a lot of natural where you have 1978 miles, you need 500 miles. But 700 would be good, 750 or so would be great. We're going to now get it up. We have all the financing. You think it's easy getting financing? When people put I couldn't get anything from them.
I could get whatever I want in terms of money except for a wall. And I made one big mistake. I should have said to him, we will not build the wall. We don't want the wall. They would have insisted that we build it. We would have had all the money we wanted. I made a mistake. I made a big mistake. Now we're building a wall. It's gone up and it's gone up rapidly and very soon we'll be building about a mile a day and we should be up to over 400 miles by next year, the end of next year and shortly thereafter it'll be finished.
And it's already having a tremendous impact on people not being able to come into our country, Bernie. And the radical left can not protect your family and they cannot protect our country, nor do they want to.
I think according to Elizabeth Pocahontas Warren. Who has somewhat less Indian blood in her than I do, and I have none. No. Oh, we hit hard, but I hit her too early. But now it doesn't matter. She's not going anywhere. But Bernie said, according to her, Bernie said, and I don't believe that he said this because, you know, I don't know him. I don't particularly like him. A nasty guy, but I don't believe he said it's not his deal.
You have to know what people say. He she said. Right there, Bernie stated strongly that a woman can't win for president. A woman can win for president. Fortunately, it did.
That could happen. Who knows? But she said that Bernie said a woman can win. I don't believe that Bernie said that. I really don't. So, you know, just know Bernie is not the kind of a thing he'd say. If you want to keep America safe. Just vote Republican. We're doing so well. We're doing. Now, this was the ad, leave him living alone. Let's security just take. You're right about the. Good job security, good job.
Do we love law enforcement? Do we love them? I just never, ever, ever a better place to be than a Trump rally on some night during some week. You know, the truth is we have a great time. But you know what? More importantly, we get things done. We get everything done.
But even President Obama's own former national security adviser, a highly respected general named Jim Jones, praised our action to take out Suleimani and said it was absolutely correct and it was the absolute right thing to do. I'm sure I'm sure they like him very much. He sounds like kind of a guy. So, Jim, have they given you a hard time? Come on over to the Republican Party? No. He's a respected guy who said we did the right thing.
Everyone knows to say, was the attack imminent? Was it imminent? Does the fact that he's killed hundreds of thousands of people and thousands of Americans and horribly killed and wounded thousands and thousand, that doesn't matter. Was the attack imminent? I think they're going to start a new investigation. Was the attack on Disha and by the way, he was in a country he wasn't allowed to be in? Know, we don't mentioned that because he was designated and he wasn't allowed to be there and he was there with the head of Hezbollah.
And they would talk it about like Hillary Clinton. They were talking about weddings and working out.
Solomon in the head of Hezbollah. They were talking about weddings working out or BillClinton in the back of the airplane with the attorney general. Well, they may have made her an offer that you're going to go to the Supreme Court or they may have said you're going to stay attorney general, but help, help. They may have said that. You think they would have said that? No, nothing like that. But you remember they talked about golf and grandchildren.
Right. Forty five minutes. You know, I like golf and I love my grandchildren. I don't think I can talk to somebody about them for 45 minutes that I don't even know. Forty. I have a beautiful grandchild. He's really beautifully so great. OK. What else am I got to say? Then I took off. Let's talk one or two. How's Tiger doing? How's this? When I was that one. That's another five minutes, right?
What am I going to do with the other 35 minutes? Maybe I'm going to talk about Supreme Court appointments, etc.. Well, we're doing very well. But at this very moment, the good people of Iraq are taking to the streets in numbers like nobody's seen before, and they're really protesting the repressive regime and demanding a better future. You know, they're great people. The great the great people of Iran, they're great people. They get it.
They're tired of watching their leaders plunder Iran to stoke violence and death and war. And, you know, Iran's causes problems for 40 years. Just see, understand. Reagan had it. Iran-Contra. Carter added 52 hostages. How about that? Destroyed. His presidency was pretty well destroyed before that Dauphine. But it it didn't help. Actually, probably got Reagan elected, if you think about it. But no, Carter had it. Fifty two hostages.
Reagan had Iran-Contra. Obama had just you know, he was like begging them for everything. But Obama gave one hundred and fifty billion, one point eight billion in cash.
We. At zero, he got zero out of it. He got zero. I'd love to have that money back. It's a lot of money. But I've warned the Ayatollah and the government of Iran that they must not harm, hurt or kill any protesters. The whole world is watching. It's watching. We've killed thousands of protesters. We support the Iranian people and their courageous struggle for freedom. It's incredible what's going on over there. It really is.
But we're watching a we're watching very closely and we were ready. You know, that night when the attack was made on us, tech was made on us. Remember this? They killed an American. They killed other people just before that. And so we did what we did. Right. And they said, it's our turn now. I said, you better be careful when you say it's our turn because we had designated targets that you wouldn't it would have taken him 30 years to rebuild if that was even possible.
That's true. And we saw those missiles launch and they were big and they were fast and they were accurate. Four of them went bad. They fell way short. But 12 of them had. And I said, man, they are quick. They knew immediately what they were and they saw those missiles hit. I said, how bad is it? It hit a base. And an hour later or so, we get a call back. I said.
How many killed? Nobody, sir. I said, how many hurt? They said. Nobody, sir. And I said they just save themselves a trillion dollars and a lot of lives. That's true. A trillion, not a billion. A trillion. So they did a very smart thing.
And we're not looking for regime change. They've tried that with Libya. They go. Hillary Clinton, let's get rid of. Let's get rid of Libya. Let's get rid of Gadhafi. Let's get rid of Gadhafi. How's that working out? Right. Let's get rid of Gadhafi. That was a Hillary deal. Then you had Benghazi and she saved Benghazi. They didn't respond. They didn't respond. Virginia to Iraq. Iraq didn't knock down the World Trade Center.
Just in case anybody had any question. And this guy did kill. He was not a sweetheart. He was a bad guy in every way. But he did kill terrorists. Right. And it became Harvard University for terrorists. Right. But they did go after him, but he didn't knock down. We get the hell out. We're moving, you know, we did something in Syria, we were guarding the border at one point where thousands of people, the Syrian border between Turkey and Syria.
It's been there for a thousand years. They've been fighting for Mitt. Soldiers out of there. I did not. And you know what I did with the soldiers? They don't tell you the true story because they're are a bunch of corrupt people back there. I told Turkey, you've got to defend your own border, we're not going to defend your border, and we get along with Turkey. But they've been there for. And by the way. I call it a safe zone.
That is the most dangerous safe zone in the world. Okay, I'm looking at the audience is about three of you that want to be in that zone. Okay. And you're very tough people. But this is the most danger I call. I called the safe. So someday it may be a safe zone, but I took our soldiers out because we had an army here and we had a vast number of people here and they were gonna fight. I said if they're going to fight like they have been for hundreds and hundreds of years, for centuries, let them fight.
But we're getting the hell out of there.
OK. But the fake news doesn't tell you the right story. But the fake news doesn't tell you the right side. Because what I did is I took our soldiers. And you know what I did? I moved him to the oil area and we now control the oil. So they said Trump stayed in Syria. Trump said so people said to me, why are you staying in Syria?
OK. A long time ago. You have no idea the things and the decisions I've said, so they say. Trump's answer, I didn't pull out. I did pull out. We have the oil really secure. We'll see what happens with it. But we can help our friends, the Kurds, because that's where they got their wealth. And then ultimately it was with ISIS. It was. But right now, it's with the United States military.
And we also got rid of remnants of ISIS while we're creating jobs and killing terrorists. Democrats in Congress are wasting America's time with demented hoaxes and crazy witch hunts that have been going on, by the way, from the day I came down the escalator with our future first lady. Somebody said to me recently, president, president was a friend of mine, you so he's got me. Donald Hey, Donald, how are you doing? Let's go up there.
Okay. Okay, good. Now he calls me president. They tell you this before because. They always call me president, president, president. Tell me what's happening. What's going on? How's it all going? You're doing such a great job. He said, do me a favor. Call me Donald. I can't. Now, when they say, you know what that means, right? That means respect for the office of president. And you know what?
We're going to keep it that way. We're going to keep it that. We're going to keep. But that's why this November we're going back and we're going to win the House, Republicans are going to win the House. Because I don't know if you know it, the impeachment hoax. It's a total hoax, a part. This is based just think of this. This is based on a perfect phone call. Did anybody read the transcript? Perfect.
In fact, if you go back and look at Lyndon Johnson. All of them take a look, you know, Lyndon Johnson was sort of a tough guy. Can you imagine his phone calls? He's probably looking down or looking up and he's probably and he's probably saying these people have gone crazy. That's a nice call I've ever tracked. Somebody said, I never knew you could be so nice on a telephone for. But this is all based on a simple phone call that was totally appropriate with the president of Ukraine, said there was no pressure on us.
Didn't even know what they were talking about. The foreign minister said they want to impeach, impeach the president of the United States over a perfect phone call. It's the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on our country. But we're going to go back. And because of it in Wisconsin, I don't know if you seen independent voters and voters, I think of all of all of the voters, including Democrats moving over. We just got one hundred and ninety five to nothing.
The Republicans in the House, which was effects, got a hunch. You know, Nancy Pelosi says it must be non partisan. It must, as you said, it has to be clear cut. Well, number one never happened. No problem. Number two. Look at the vote. Three Democrats voted with us. So I guess you could say I guess you could say it was a non partisan vote because they voted with us. But we're going back and we're going to hold the Senate and we're going to keep the White House.
But we're going to win back the House. We're going to win back the House. And I'm thrilled tonight Amanda has become a great friend of mine, he's a warrior. Senator Ron Johnson is here.
Come on, bro. What a good guy. Congressman Brian Style. Jim Sensenbrenner, Glen Crossbeam, Glen. Come up, come up. Mike Gallagher. Wisconsin House Speaker Robin Vos. Wisconsin's state Senate president, Roger Roffe. State Senate president. Wisconsin's state Senate Majority Leader, Scott Fitzgerald. A friend of mine, a world champion freak. He'd climb strictly. Would you believe it? Shown here. Get up here. I love champers. He would climb that sucker.
He was the best in the world right here from Wisconsin. Right. Congressman Sean Duffy. We'll miss him. But, you know, he side with CNN, they paid him a lot of money and they don't put him on. Why? Because I'm pro Trump. You think that's fair? He's pro Trump. So what they've done is pay the money to silence him because he has a very important voice. I like that candidate. I think he's OK.
He gets his check. They refused to put him on. He says good things about Trump. We don't want you on CNN. That's how fake right there. Turn the camera on. Had a good friend of all of ours, a Kenosha native rights, previous rights come up. Thank you. Thank you. This is a great group of Republican people. But more importantly, it's a great group of winners. They have been so great, so they worked so hard.
And I just want to thank you all for being here.
Well, thank you for your strong show support for President Trump. No. We ran a pretty tough campaign together here in Wisconsin 2016 and where was all said and done? I was tired. I did take some days off. You know who didn't take any days off? President Trump. I have never seen a man work harder being so dedicated, so in love with America. That is why we all need to make sure that he wins a second term.
I have also I'm 64 years old. I've never in my lifetime seen. A man or get elected pres United States where there wasn't some. Measure of well-wishes. Some honeymoon period where America gathered around that individual and said, Mr. President, we also it's a big job. We wish you well. Keep us safe. Make this country prosperous. That hasn't happened. That's because the Democrats simply won't admit he beat them. He has been tormented since a day after the election, but he has held strong.
It hasn't bothered him. He's just press forward. He's made this country great. Our economy's in great shape. He deserves to get reelected. Like like all of you, like all of you, he loves his country. You do everything to defend it. We love President Trump. God bless you, President Trump. Thank you, Ron. A great guy, thanks to strong Republican leadership like Ron, like all of them that you just saw. America is winning again.
America is respected again and America is thriving again like never before.
We're doing it with the envy of the world. And under my administration, we now have the lowest average unemployment rate of any administration in the history of our country. And in your great state, Wisconsin, you ever notice with Biden he's always go on the wrong state and in your great state of Iowa.
I'll go to Iowa right now, which was cut. Oh, I bet Wisconsin. Oh, I didn't know I was in Wisconsin. That's right. How many times has he done that? By the way? Lots of times, he said. It's great to be in the state of Ohio. No, sir, you're in. Here in Florida. Many times. The sad part about that, sleepy Joe is right. You know, the sad part about that, when you do that, you can't really recover.
You can be Winston Churchill, make the finest remainder of remarks, but you get killed. And he does it every time. And the fake news, they give him a total pass and that's OK. All right. It's going to happen to all of us someday. Does anybody get that? In Wisconsin, the unemployment rate has reached its lowest level in history.
How's that for a sound bite? How do you beat that sound bite? Right. So now the people of Wisconsin go say, well, let's see the state set a record. Most successful it's ever been. And by the way, that's because we got a lot of help from a guy named Scott Walker. Ron Johnson, all those guys. This didn't happen so quickly, I think. So how do you how do you beat that? You have the most successful lowest unemployment rate you've ever had.
And then they say somebody is going to come and say, we'll do a better job. Really going to do a better job. The lowest in history by far. Your number one economic numbers by far. Oh, let's put somebody else in as president. I don't think so. Right. But here's one that I love the most. African-American, Hispanic, American, Asian, American. Unemployment rates have reached the lowest levels ever recorded in the history of our country.
And here's another one. African-American youth. You know, the way it was so high, it was so horrible. Youth unemployment has reached an all time low in recorded history.
African-American poverty has reached the lowest rate ever recorded. Also. And by the way, just out of curiosity, how are you for a one case?
The only question are you had 70, 80, 90, 97. He goes higher. What are you at? What's yours? One hundred percent not bad. I know who he's voting for.
But think of those because this is what it's about is that, you know, these companies, these big public companies, zero by the people there or by everybody, rich people and their own by everybody. We have said one hundred and forty one records on the stock market. Highest levels ever in recorded history. One hundred and forty one records. That makes it less than three years for one hundred and forty one days. We set a record. Think of it, we've said one hundred and forty one records.
What the hell can do that? And if our opponents had won the election, instead of going up, you know, we're very close to thirty thousand on the Dow. Nobody thought that was possible, including the fakers back there. Nobody thought that was possible. Instead of being up, you would have Dow, I believe, I really believe because regulation so important, tax cuts so important to get it all going. I believe instead of being up massively, whatever the number is, but depending on who you are, changes.
But it's all way over 60, 70, 80. You guys know you would have been down 50, 60, 70. You would have been down at a level you would probably be extremely depressed right now. You wouldn't have bought all those brand new Keep America great hats. Don't worry, we're never getting rid of Magga. Don't worry. We don't have the courage to get rid of Magga. The greatest campaign in history. We're never leaving. But you wouldn't.
But those that you know why you wouldn't have the money to buy em. Okay. Now you can buy em. It doesn't mean a damn thing. So let's do it real fast. The poll, right? Make America great again. Or keep America great. Right. You know, I don't have to go through an ordeal. We're going to do it quick. We're going to do it quickly. Ready? Who likes? Make America great again.
You're very loyal. People in Wisconsin. Who likes Keep America great? So it surprises me every single time. But make America great again, Magga has never won one of these polls. You know why we've rebuilt our military. We've cut taxes. We've cut regulation.
Our stock market hit records. It's called Keep America. Great. I mean, we've done so much. And I just got a frazey. These Democrats, they go out, spend a million dollars in a poll. What I do is I take my own poll and they live to view two hundred and three people. Two hundred and three people say they'll get it wrong because I'm always surprised. Make America great again. I think is the greatest phrase ever used in politics.
So this switch, it may be crazy so we could use them both. OK. We're using. But under the Trump economy, the lowest paid earners are reaping the biggest, fastest and largest gains. You know that, right? This is a blue collar boom.
They don't like telling you that under my administration, the growth in net worth for the bottom half of wage earners has increased fifteen times more than under the three previous administrations.
That's pretty. Because they keep saying, oh, the rich are getting richer while the poor are doing the best they've ever done. Earnings for the bottom 10 percent are rising faster than earnings for the top 10 percent proportionately under eight years of the Barack Hussein Obama administration.
Which administration loves spying on people's campaigns? By the way, by the way, could you imagine if it were the other way around and I spied on his campaign. Why would these fake news people be doing? More than three hundred thousand people under Obama. Three hundred thousand people left the workforce under just three years of my administration. Three point five million people have joined the workforce. And nobody believed that was.
Three hundred and seventy companies have signed our pledge to America's workers, providing more than 14 million Americans with new training and job opportunities.
We're training them. We're getting them. Wal-Mart, so many great companies. They're training people because they can train much better than government. 14 million euros worked so hard on that. Everybody you've heard of. If unca right. She had such a passion for it. She's very smart, I said, would you like this job? No, Dad, I want to get people working. I want to get them and help families. So I said, all right, good.
Look, she's smart. Go do whatever the hell you want to do is okay, darling. So she had a goal of a half a million people. She was going to get trained, get into companies. So she'd call Wal-Marts and call X Sawchuk, call all these great companies. And all of a sudden she hit 8 million. Then she hit 9 million. Don't forget, she wanted to do 500000. But this is her dad, you 10 million.
She just had 14 million.
People are being trained by this group. 14 million. A. 14 million, would you believe that's possible, but that's why we have the best unemployment rates, we have the best employment rates, by the way. One hundred and sixty, very close to 160 million people are now working in the United States. Nobody has ever even come close to that number.
We've lifted 10 million people off federal welfare programs. Real median income is now at the highest level ever recorded in the history of our country. Think of that real. Real median income under eight years, so we're three years, right? But really less because when it was done, the stats, it was two and a half.
But we had less than three under eight years of the Bush administration. Household incomes grew four hundred dollars eight years. Four hundred dollars under eight years of President Obama. Household incomes grew. Nine hundred and seventy five thousand. OK. Nine seventy five, eight years. Right. Under three years of the Trump administration. Household incomes have risen ten thousand dollars.
Why we're doing the consumer three thousand one hundred dollars, of which for regulatory cuts, two thousand dollars for the tax cuts, it's actually higher than that two thousand five hundred dollars for energy savings and five thousand dollars in real wage gains. Ten thousand dollars.
The child tax credit alone, which every Democrat in Congress oppose, is delivering two thousand two hundred dollars a year to the average American family, who's who's in favor of that cut? Who's in favor of having that? People don't know, they think the Democrats gave it, the Democrats give nothing. You're too busy, too busy doing other things. They don't do what? They're too busy doing other things, we ended the war on American energy. The United States is now the number one producer of oil and natural gas anywhere on Earth.
No one in the world by far. Saudi Arabia, Russia, but we're number one by far. And if I get a couple of additional pipelines approved, which I will very quickly, instead of waiting 20 years to get them approved, it increases by another 22 percent. That we'll get them done quickly.
And they'll be environmentally friendly and all of that. I believe in that. We have eliminated a record number of job destroying regulations. I brought back the old light bulb, better light for much less money. If you want to know. Somebody said, oh, sir. Don't mention the light bulb. You know, it's hard to make an elegant speech. Ms. I got brought back the light bulb. So the new light bulb. Course you're five times as much and it makes you look orange.
And I was more interested in the orange than I was in the cross. But you know what? If you want to have it. And you know the new bar, I don't know if you see it on there. It's a hazardous waste that when that bulb ends, you're supposed to take it to a certain dump and gingerly put it in because it's loaded up with gases. That's it. I said to somebody today in environmental protection. How many people do that in the country, sir?
Maybe none. They throw it into the garbage can. But I'm also approving new dishwashers that give you more water so you can actually wash and rich your dishes without having to do it 10 times or five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten. Anybody have a new dishwasher? I'm sorry for that. I'm sorry for that. It's worthless. They give you so little water. You ever see it? Air comes out. So little water.
So what happens? You end up using it 10 times and the place that you take him out and doing the old fashioned way. Right. But what do you do? You're spending 10 times for the electricity, rent. So I'm putting the water back. Most places have so much water, they don't know what the hell to do with it. You know, a lot of people don't realize it. So dishwasher's now you're going to have a just as much as you've ever had and you're going to use now one shot, your dishes are going to be beautiful.
I'm sorry that you just bought one of those brand new pieces of garbage. But darling, people like. And it's that way, and it was just announced from South Korea makes a lot of our products, unfortunately. I put a tariff on washing machines and refrigerators. They just announced that they're building major refrigerator and washing machine plants in the United States. You know why? You know why? Because they don't want to pay the 25 percent tariff. So they're building them here.
That way they don't have to pay for. Just one final thing. I know this doesn't matter, but I say leave it, it's so inelegant to talk about it. Right. Is that an elegant. I'm talking about dishwasher's. What do you hear the next. I'm talking about. Refrigerator's. Probably wanted to say to the union, I'll leave it out because I want to get praise for making it. You cannot make a brilliant speech where they say that was such an incredible, eloquent speech.
If I'm talking about dishwasher's sinks, toilets, light bulbs. But safe's. Toilets and showers. You don't get any water. They put restricted zone and now they made him permanent. People used to take him out. They put restrictions on try going and buying a new faucet. You turn it on, no water comes out. We won't talk about toilets. But, you know, that's a. Ten fifty. But we don't talk about that because I've said this three or four times, the only subject they ever talk about is toilet.
So I don't mention it. But how about the shower? You go into a shower and I have this beautiful head of hair I need a lot of. And you go into the shower, right, you turn on the water drip. Drip. I call the guy sup wrong with his. No, sir, it's just the restrictor. So you're in there five times longer than you're supposed to be. You use probably more water and it's a very unpleasant experience.
So we're getting rid of the restrictions you can have full shower flow. Did you ever go to the faucet, you turn on the faucet to wash your hands and it turns you on so easy, it's like this, you know, because of zero pressure behind it. No water. You go like that. The thing flips on a wall. And then dun dun. These people are crazy. And then in California, this governor who has no clue.
By the way, he has noted. Governor Gavin Newsom, he sends all the water out to the Pacific. And then he just comes up. I don't know if you saw this. They come up with rules and regulations that starting soon, if you're a person lives in California, you only get 50 gallons of water. Now, it sounds like a lot of water, but it's not if you take a shower. Wash your hands a couple of times a day.
It's not that it goes down to 47, 46, 45. Can you imagine? You pay the highest taxes outside of New York, where they're not doing a good job in New York. They're not doing good. Everyone's leaving New York for other environs like Florida. It's not good because the taxes are too high. Governor Cuomo's got to get those taxes there. Got to get them down. And other things have to happen. But he loves Gavin.
So, Gavin Newsom, you have the water pouring down from up north. Millions and millions of gallons. You know they do that. They diverted into the Pacific Ocean because they have hit. We must be in Wisconsin. No. Millions of gallons coming down from the north. It goes off his massive valve. You're talking about a valve. This is a serious belt. And they turn it and it's shit because they have a tiny, tiny little fish that's doing very poorly with or without the water.
So in the meantime, if you own a home in Beverly Hills, they scream at you, if you know what you know. What do you. Yes, a little bit, right. But you have no water coming in. They divert millions and millions of gallons. And what we've just done for the people of California is we've made it possible on a federal basis that they don't have to divert all that water anymore. Now, that's only good for California.
But these are the things we do. And now the last one is we're working on cars. We're making them less expensive and safer. We're giving them a tiny little bit more fuel. And you're going to save on average, three thousand five hundred dollars. You're going to have a heavier car a little bit. Meaning you'll have steel instead of papier-mache was. And we're getting a lot of good this. And environmentally, it's better because now people the numbers twelve from 12 years ago with the old gas guzzlers, they'll all be trading in their cars to get the new cars, which they don't do right now.
So it's really going to be something and we're in a little fight with California over that. But I think ultimately we win that one. You'll buy a better car, a safer car for less money. Not a bad combination. Not a bad. To lift up forgotten communities that need investment the most. We've created opportunity zones, jobs and investment are now pouring into one hundred and twenty newly designated opportunity zones right here in Wisconsin. And Ron Johnson helped.
And Tim Scott of South Carolina. Help. They're doing great. They are doing good. And for decades, politicians ran for office promising to defend Wisconsin workers. But then they went to Washington and line their pockets with special interest cash as they shipped your jobs and your dreams to countries thousands of miles away, countries that you've never even heard of. Globalist politicians lowered our economic defenses and allowed other nations to rob your factories, steel your farms. By the way.
No estate tax on those beautiful farms we got rid of. So now if you love your children and you have a farm or a small business or small ranch or even a large ranch, you have no estate tax should give it to the kids. If you don't love your children. Anybody in here does not love their children. There are some. Don't come on, raise your head. There is like, you know, they're brats. That little brat said horrible human beings.
So if you're one of them, this doesn't help you because you'll save some time. That fact is no estate tax on these small businesses and farms. That's a tremendous thing, because you were dying. You were leaving the business to your kids. They all said, thank you very much, daddy and mommy. And then they went out and mortgage the hell out of the place and they ended up losing it to the banks. But we got rid of the estate tax on small farms and businesses and really great things.
Little stuff like that. We've done that. We never said we were going to do. But these people ransacking your communities. But we are defenseless. No more, because at long last you have a president who puts America first.
Been a long time. We're putting America first saw no issue of Washington Democrats more thoroughly betrayed the American people than that of immigration because traitor. You having a good time, sir? I think you guys traitor. They are, I guess in a certain way they are traitors when you think about it. Left wing politicians I call on the do nothing. Democrats support deadly sanctuary cities, demonstrating their contempt, scorn and disdain for everyday Americans. These jurisdiction's release dangerous, violent criminal aliens out of their jails and directly onto your streets where they are free to rob, attack and murder American citizens.
You have it right here. You have it right. Last year, ice. I love ice. I think this so-called.
You know, they move thousands of MS13 out of our country, thousands and others, too. But I saw officers in this region of our country arrested nearly 7000 illegal aliens with criminal records. So you have 7000 illegal aliens having criminal records, including those charged or convicted of murder, burglary, robbery, drug crimes, killings in the most violent way. Right here in Wisconsin, cities run by far left politicians are releasing dangerous criminal aliens who abuse, assault and threaten innocent children.
Your children. Last year, a place I like. The Sanctuary County of Milwaukee released an illegal alien criminal with multiple charges for sexual assault of Gile. Thank you. That of children. He's now at large. They're searching all over and he's looking for yet another victim. They're searching all over. Allowed to go from your sanctuary city in the city of Madison. Police arrested an illegal alien for sexual assault after authorities released him. He committed violent battery only to be released one more time.
They're looking for him again. Isn't that nice? So the same illegal alien was then arrested for a third time in September and charged with multiple sexual assaults, including sexual assault of a child. Now that criminal is once again in Wisconsin jail. And I call on your left wing officials to stop the madness and to work with ICE to ensure he is deported. The hell back home. Get him out of our country. Democrats stand for crime, corruption and chaos.
Republicans stand for law, order and justice, it's true. It's true. We believe Wisconsin should be a sanctuary for law abiding Americans, not for criminal aliens.
We are removing these illegal criminals and gang members by the tens of thousands and we will not let them back. And we made a deal with Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Mexico, where they accept them back under the Obama administration. They get them, they'd bring them back. And Honduras and Guatemala would say, no, we're not taking them back. But with us, they take them back. Take break. It helped a lot when we were paying them hundreds of millions of dollars a year.
Think of it. And I just said we're not paying them anymore. All of a sudden they said we would love to have our wonderful gang members, but we would love to have our gang members back, sir. Thanks to our tireless efforts to secure the border, we have reduced illegal border crossings. Seven straight months in a row and we're being helped by our new hundred miles plus of war. Illegal crossings are down 78 percent since May. And we've ended catch and release.
That was a tough.
Very big and very powerful border wall is going up at a record speed. And we are red and we're fully financed.
And then nice. Was it easy? That was not easy. And we're adding new miles every week. And we were on track to soon build that wall. You're going to have a wall like no other. It's going to be a powerful, terrific wall and walls to work.
I hate to say, remember the Democrats? You don't need walls. Oh, really? We we need drones. They wanted us to put drones flying around, taking pictures of everybody. Now. Did you see a part of the new wall two days ago, illegal aliens with drugs on their back were climbing the wall, they got to the top. You know, that paddle on top is called a climb resistor. It's very slippery and very hot. Very hot.
And they got stuck on the wall. They couldn't get off the wall. Did you see that? I was watching the news, I was surprised at the fake news, showed it and I said, is that a beautiful sight? It couldn't get over the wall. They had to get the fire department to get him down. Do you believe 30 feet up, that's like almost a four story building. Washington Democrats have never been more extreme than they are now.
They're going crazy. They're going totally loony. Nervous, Nancy? How about nervous? How about her district? Her district is so filthy, dirty, it's filthy, dirty with all of the things I won't say it, but the needles and everything else. These are areas that were 10 years ago the best in the country. And now they're disgusting. She had to spend more time back in San Francisco taking care of her community instead of wasting everybody's time.
But taking their cues from socialist Bernie Sanders AOC, all these people, liberal lawmakers are pushing a government takeover of health care that would strip 180 million Americans of their private health insurance. Many of you have great insurance. Republicans will never let that happen. They'll probably change their mind before they see this. Why don't like talking about it? I'd rather wait six, seven, eight months. Let them say it 5000 times when they have to do it and then talk.
Now they want to take away your private health insurance. We will protect patients with pre-existing conditions like nobody else. And we will protect your existing physicians, which you've had to get rid of. Which you will have to get rid of when this new plan never happens. That the work is not going to. It's not going to happen. I wouldn't worry about it. Sounds nice. It doesn't even sound good, frankly. There's one that costs a fortune, doesn't even sound good.
At least let it sound good. Virtually every top Democrat also now supports late term abortion. Ripping babies straight from the mother's womb. And that is why I've asked Congress Hébert extreme late term abortion, because Republicans believe that every child is a sacred gift from God. Democrats are now the party of high taxes. Think of it, they want to raise your taxes. How does that work? I guess I'm old fashioned. I've only been doing this for three.
I haven't. I'm not experienced like either a senator came up to. Sir, I've run seven different three, one, five times. I said I've done one, but I've won. But it's typical. But now certainly we're all smart people. How is it good when they say we're going to raise your taxes? The world is the world going crazy? They say we're going to raise your taxes. We're going to open borders. Everybody could come in.
For everybody's health insurers, schooling. You know, I went to. We're gonna get everybody a Rolls Royce and CNN or one of them said they never said and they never promised a Rolls Royce. Donald Trump lied tonight. I said every illegal alien will have a Rolls Royce. They said he lied tonight. These people are sick. But they're the party of late term abortion, socialism and corruption. The Republican Party is the party of the American worker, the American family, the American dream and of course, Honest Abe Lincoln.
Right. Republicans are fighting for citizens from every background and from every race, religion, color and create.
We are a movement. There's a movement like nobody's ever seen before. You know, when I mentioned this, anything I say that's even slightly false. It's headlines. Trump said this. These people, he said this. This is one of the greatest. I would say this. This is the greatest movement in the history of our culture.
I really never believed. I mean, there have been some great movements where somebody came along and out of nowhere won the state of New Hampshire, won Iowa, won South Carolina down the way, won a state some place. But we won 32 states. There's never been a movie like this, never happened before.
But we're a movement for all Americans who believe in fairness and justice, equality and dignity, opportunity and safety. We are a big tent and we are a big party of big ideas for the future. And that's why African-Americans are joining the Republican Party. Like nobody ever thought even possible. They love us and we love them. And to give former prisoners a second chance at life we passed. It was us, not the Democrats. They came to me.
They wanted to help. I gave them help. I got it done. I called Republicans that maybe wouldn't have been so inclined. Some of them some of them very much in line. Some of them very conservative, were very much in line. But I got the people that we needed. Obama couldn't do it. Bush couldn't do it. Nobody could do it. I got it approved. And from the day it was approved, I got no thanks.
I got no credit. And that's OK, because, you know. But we passed bipartisan criminal justice reform, and that's helped so many people, I mean, you know, the story of Alice Johnson, you know so many different stories. It's helped so many people, especially in the African-American community, the Hispanic community. It's helped a lot of people.
It's a different world to uphold the rule of law. We have confirmed 187 federal judges, a record who will interpret the constitution as. One hundred and eighty said. And last spring, Wisconsin voters, as you know, elected a great judge to your state Supreme Court. And this spring, you have a chance to re-elect another terrific judge, Justice Daniel Kelly. Go vote for Justice Daniel Kelly to defend the rule of law in Wisconsin. Daniel Kelly. We are aggressively combating the opioid epidemic and we've done great.
Look, do you get rid of it? You never did great. But we have done numbers that nobody thought possible in two thousand eighteen drug overdose deaths. The overdose deaths fell for the first time in decades, including by 10 percent in the state of Wisconsin, 17, 18, 19, and even 21 percent in a couple of states. And China is now putting a big stop, a big lid on fentanyl, which is a disaster coming out of China, said the president as he got to do it.
People are dying. Going to do it. They're doing it. And we are fighting very hard for school choice.
And it's moving along well in Wisconsin. Milwaukee created the first school choice program 30 years ago to free children from failing government schools. And now my administration is working to give school choice to every child in America who needs it.
As we continue rebuilding, our military workers are building brand new Humvee replacements, you know about that in Oshkosh and magnificent new littoral combat ships in Marionette. Ladyship's a lot of Humvees. I recognize Israel's true capital and opened the American embassy in Jerusalem. And we recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, something they've been trying to get for 52, two years.
For years you watched as your politicians apologized for America. Now you have a president who is standing up for America and we are standing up for you. The people of Wisconsin. At stake in our present battle is the survival of the nation. What these people are doing, they will destroy our nation. They will destroy our nation. And our last election was so important. I don't know, maybe the most important ever, but it was so important. I really believe that this election may be in its own way, will be just as important.
I can't say more.
But just as important because we need time for that tree to grow. You know, you plant a tree and it takes time. We need time for that tree to grow. And we have other things that we want to do. 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 2020. You have to do it. Only this way can we save the America we love and drain the Washington swamp once and for all.
And I have found out what a swampers bad people. I have become the expert on what, a swamp and you know, when I used to say drain the swamp. I had no idea it would be that bad. But we're winning. We're here and they're not. We're winning. We're winning. Bad people, dishonest bad people. 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, which now we're already doing.
We're already doing a lot of it. You got to get Lupo's you know, you need their votes.
We have loopholes like visa lottery. We put names in a lottery and they come in. They become American citizens. Do you think these countries are giving us their findings? Oh, let's give them our best citizens. These people are crazy to allow this to happen. So we're stopping it all. But ending catch and release was a very big thing. And we did that with no Democrat help. They wouldn't do it called loopholes. Who wouldn't want to?
Andlocal. We will enact trade deals that result in more products proudly stamped with that 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 in America in less than 10 years. Who would've thought that we will defend privacy, free speech, religious liberty and the right to keep and bear arms?
And above all, 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 of America.
We stand with the incredible heroes 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 to always respect our great American flag. And we live by the words of our national model. In God we trust they'll always be there. We'll never let them remove it.
Those words will always be. From Milwaukee to Monroe, from Bayfield to Green Bay. Good luck this weekend.
And from West Bend to West Dallas, we stand on the shoulders of the most courageous men and women ever to walk on the face of the Earth. Our American ancestors crossed the oceans, settled a continent, tame the wilderness, revolutionized industry, pioneered science, won two world wars, defeated fascism and communism, landed men on the face of the moon and made America the greatest nation in the history of the world. 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 move. 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 Wisconsin, the best is yet to come.
You. Because working together, we will make America wealthy again. We will make America stronger again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And we will make America great again. Thank you, Wisconsin. Thank you. Today he was. A glass. He was one man. You can get one to. You can't always get what you want. You can't always get what you want. Get fair share.
