But American President Donald Trump. Across the plains. From sea to shining sea. Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you to Greenville, North Carolina. I want to thank you. And to Mike Pence, great job, great vice president. Thank you, Mike. And we have all night, we have a lot of fun tonight. I have nothing to do. We have nothing to do but make our country great again. And that's happening.
It's wonderful to be back in this beautiful state with thousands of hardworking North Carolina patriots.
And thank you for your support. And thank you for that very big victory we had three years ago. Time is flying. Getting ready. Let's do it again. Right. I just heard that the United States House of Representatives has overwhelmingly voted to kill the most ridiculous project I've ever been involved in the resolution. How stupid is that? Impeached. I want to thank those Democrats because many of them voted for us. The vote was a totally lopsided three hundred and thirty two to ninety five to one.
332 to 95. Think of it. We have the strongest economy in history, the lowest unemployment numbers ever. We've rebuilt the most powerful military. It was totally depleted. When I took office. We passed the largest tax cuts and regulation cuts of any president or any administration in history. We took care of our great vets, including Veterans Choice and veterans accountability. And they want to try and impeach, it's a disgrace. So now we have that behind us, and I have to say this.
And I'll say just once, what happened to me with this witch hunt should never be allowed to happen to another president of the United States. And I want to thank Republican leadership for what they've done for all of us by stopping that hoax, the Russian hoax, I call it, because America is winning again. America is respected again and because we are finally putting America first.
Our economic policy can be summed up in three very beautiful and simple words jobs, jobs, jobs. We've created 6 million new jobs since Election Day, if I would have said that, nobody would have believed it. If I would have said that, the fake news would have said he's exaggerating. And I wouldn't have said it because I wasn't even sure we could do so, think of it, six million jobs since Election Day.
And by the way, North Carolina has had its best economic year in the history of your state.
Countries added more than 180000 people to the workforce, and think of that through what we've done on a federal basis, you picked up over one hundred and eighty thousand jobs, North Carolina.
And you have the lowest unemployment rate, you have a lot of good things. But let's not talk too much about North Carolina. Let's win this election nationwide.
You remember North Carolina that was going to be the Clinton firewall. She spent a fortune here. And I kept coming in and coming out. They call it earned media. I earned it. I kept coming in and coming out. And every time I left, I said, I don't think we'll lose in North Carolina. You know what? I was right. We want it. We want to. So I just want to thank everybody says. This is a big that was a big deal.
November 8. That was a big deal. Donald Trump has won the great state of North Carolina. That was when you started to see the folks at a certain other convention, beautiful looking place. One of the most beautiful venues I've ever seen. But I don't want any part of it. It was unlucky. I don't want any part. But that's when you saw the people say, what the hell is going on? What's what's happening? And then it was state after state.
It was Florida. It was South Carolina. We love South Carolina. Right? It was Pennsylvania. Remember, they wouldn't announce the numbers in Pennsylvania. So there was 1 percent of the vote remaining. If I lost every one of those votes, we still win by line. And they wouldn't announce. They wouldn't announce. And then we won the great state of Wisconsin, first time in many, many decades, a Republican.
And then we had a surprise, but not a surprise to us because we're bringing back the auto industry, brought so much back to the great state of Michigan. That was a shocker, remember?
He remembers certain hand on that beautiful board. And they said, you know, this board is getting awfully red. That's Republican. There's a lot of red up there. We had a lot of that was one hell of a night, wasn't it, though? I think it was maybe, you know, there are those that say one of the most extraordinary and exciting evenings in the history of television and the history of anything and you know, you can go all over the world.
In some cases it was morning. You go to Asia, you go to Europe, you go all over. It was just record setting. And here's the point. We have to do it again. We have to do it.
And the reason we have to not only to do new things, which we will and you know, statutorily and we had all sorts of artificial witch hunts over our head, can you imagine if we didn't have to go through that hoax? I don't know that we would have done any better, to be honest with you. I think we've done more in two and a half years than any president ever. First two and a half year. But could you imagine what it could have been if we didn't have the witch hunt?
You said it. I won't say it because it's a harrill. It's a terrible word. So I will not say that this guy said if we didn't have the bullshit, that's. No, no. Could you imagine if we didn't have the time wasted that time and everything? Can you imagine? And, you know, a friend of mine said maybe you wouldn't have done as well. Is that possible? That can happen. Maybe we would have had too much time on our hands.
Who knows? But I can say nobody in their first two and a half years has done anywhere close to what we. Not me. What we've all done. So the unemployment rate among African-Americans is the lowest in the history of our country.
Unemployment among Hispanic Americans where we're doing really well. You know why? Because they want a strong border. They want it because they understand the border better than anybody. They want that strong border. They want that wall that's being built right now. And they really do they understand the border better than anybody. And they don't want criminals coming in. They don't want crime coming and they don't want to lose their jobs. They like the fact that their salaries are going up, their wages are going up.
They understand it better. So Hispanic, American, the best unemployment numbers in our history. Asian Americans, the best unemployment numbers in our history. And likewise, women, 74 years. I'm sorry, women, I let you down, it's not in our history, but we're going to be there very soon. We're going to be there very soon. Women are doing incredibly. And women.
The men are going to get. Sorry, man. Whoa. Look at all those signs, women, women for Trump. It's a lot of signs. Remember last election, Donald Trump will never, ever get the women. Then we got this tremendous number of women. We got this tremendous number of women. And during the election night, this is what's going on. You know, it's called suppression polls. Suppression polls are just as fake as the news itself.
But women filled 60 percent. And I'm sorry to tell you this, Ben, they're going to sue me for discrimination now. Women fill 60 percent of all of the new jobs created last year.
Women took 60 percent. What's wrong with you, man? But the radical Democrats are trying to destroy all of our country's tremendous achievement and our country's tremendous success, unprecedented. We've had unprecedented success leaders come in from other countries, prime ministers, presidents, kings, queens, dictators sometimes I hate to say it. Dictators and they all start off by saying, Mr. President, I'd like to congratulate you on the incredible economy that you've created the greatest anywhere in the world by far.
And sadly, China will have a very good relationship with President Xi, I really like him. But China has had yesterday it was announced the worst year in 27 years.
And we've had the best. And if our opponent ever got into office, instead of being up 62 percent instead of those four or one case of yours being up 60, 70, 80, 90 percent. Yes, big crash, you would have had a crash, the likes of which we have never seen before. If they got in office, because we freed up our country, we freed up our economy with especially with regulation cuts, but also with those big, beautiful tax cuts we freed.
The leading voices of the Democrat Party are left wing extremists who reject everything our nation stands for. But again, I have to tell you, this vote was so big, I have to think many of the Democrats I mean, that was an amazing no, no. I really do. I respect it. I really do. That was a that was a slaughter. But many of those people that voted for us this afternoon in somewhat of a sneak attack, a real sneak attack.
Many of those people that voted for us were Democrats. And I want to thank them because they did the right thing for our country.
Republicans know that America is the greatest force for peace and justice in the history of our world. But these left wing ideologues see our nation as a force of evil, the way they speak so badly of our country. They want to demolish our constitution, weaken our military, eliminate the values that built this magnificent country. You have to look at some of their recent comments, which are never talked about when you see the four congresswomen. Oh, isn't that lovely?
I'll give you just a couple of have pages and pages, but we don't want to bore you will want to go to law. But we have to give a couple because that's the great thing about live television. They can't cut it.
Representative Johann Omar. Of a really great state. I almost won first time in decades and decades. Minnesota, great state. By the way, I keep hearing how much enthusiasm is in the radical left. I don't think they have enthusiasm. They're just fighting with each other. We have all of the enthusiasm. He goes home now to mommy and he gets reprimanded and that's the end, sorry, mommy. Sorry, mom didn't mean to embarrass your mom, but it's true.
We have the enthusiasm, folks. Look at this. Look at this. And by the way, thousands and thousands of people outside. And people that couldn't get in. Thousands. We've got all the enthusiasm, they're fighting each other. They've gone so far left, nobody wants to even think about it. So Representative Omar, blame the United. For the terrorist attacks on our country, saying that terrorism is a reaction to our involvement in other people's affairs.
She smeared U.S. service members involved in Black Hawk Down. In other words, she slandered the brave Americans who were trying to keep peace in Somalia. Omar, minimize the September 11th attacks on our homeland, saying some people did something I don't. Some people did something, yes, some people did something, all right. She pleaded for compassion for ISIS recruits attempting to join the terrorist organization. She was looking for comfort. Omar left that Americans speak of al-Qaida in a menacing tone and remarked that you don't see America with this intensity.
You say al-Qaida makes you proud, al-Qaida makes you proud. You don't speak that way about America. And at a press conference just this week, when asked whether she supported al-Qaida, that's our enemy. That's our enemy. They are a very serious problem that we take care of. But they always seem to come along somewhere. She refused to answer. She didn't want to give an answer to that question. Omar blamed the United States for the crisis in Venezuela.
We think of that one and she looks down with contempt on the hard working Americans, saying that ignorance is pervasive in many parts of this country.
And obviously, and importantly, Omar has a history of launching vicious anti Semitic screeds. She talked about the evil Israel and it's all about the Benjamins. Not a good thing to say. So that's Omar. That's Omar. And by the way, many other things, all you have to do is press the right button on your beautiful screen and you'll see thing if you didn't hear this over the last two days. Did you hear anybody talk about her colleague, Representative Rasheeda Talib?
I agreed with Omar's characterization of 9/11 and said that members of Congress who support Israel forgot what country they represent. And Talib also used the F-word to describe the presidency. And your president. They said nice even for me. She was describing the president of the United States and the presidency with the big, fat, vicious, the way she said it, vicious F-word. That's not somebody that loves our country. Representative Alexandrea O'Casey. Check out her scores, by the way, with her new green new deal, the green new deal.
Where did that come from? She's conducted outrageous attacks against men and women of law enforcement. She compared American border agents to managing a humanitarian crisis that I always said was a humanitarian crisis. And they said it was manufactured. They don't say it was manufactured and we're stopping it. And I want to thank Mexico. They've got twenty one thousand soldiers now stopping people. But Cortez, somebody said that's her name, it's. They said that Zontar name, sir.
I said, no, no, I don't have time to go with three different names. We'll call a courthouse. Too much stock takes too much time. So Cortez also she said essentially Nazis are running concentration camps. And when Mike Pence went down just a few days ago with members of Congress and the media and you looked at those so-called horrible concentration camps, they said, wow, these places are clean. Wow, they have air conditioning, they have water.
And, you know, to be honest, it's not like they came. And we want to take care of people. We got to straighten out our immigration laws, you know, in a very short period of time. If the Democrats would give us a few votes, we could solve the immigration problem and it would be so great. But these kids and these people come from rough places. And I'll tell you what some of them said, we've never lived like this before.
They have water, they have air conditioning. They have things that they've never seen. And we listened to her talking about drinking water from toilets, which was a lie. Which was a lie. Cortez said that illegal immigrants are more American than any person who seeks to keep them out. Ever will be. Can you believe that? That's what she's saying. She described contemporary America. That's you. That's me. That's all of us as garbage. Garbage.
You remember deplorable. Right. That sounds worse. I think that's worse. But we'll save it for whoever is going to be the nominee. And right now, Sleepy Joe's not looking too good. Pocahontas. Pocahontas is gaining a little bit because we probably use the Pocahontas a little bit too early. But that's OK. We'll bring it out of retirement very soon. They have a new one who knocked the hell out of Biden during a debate. He said, I wasn't prepared for that question.
That's not a good answer. Can you imagine? And according to the polls, I won every single debate Republican and against Hillary. Can you imagine? Those are the polls that will admit that many, many polls. But can you imagine if I said, oh, I'm sorry, I wasn't prepared for that question. I'm I'm gone. That's the end of Trump. He's not prepared. He's not mentally prepared. That's his problem. But everybody that knows him knows that.
But no, Harris hit him with a pretty easy question on busing. One would say that's pretty easy. And he choked, he choked. And then he said, I'm sorry. I ran out of time by. He ran out of time. And then you have a young guy, Boudette Jej Boudette judge, saying how to say his name, bood, edge, edge. He's a beauty. He runs a failed city. His city is doing so badly.
Mike Pence was the governor of that state. I said, how was he as as the bear? Mike is one of the nicest human beings you'll ever meet.
He said. And Mike said he never did a good job. I'm so shocked to see him running. Okay. And then he goes back home and African Americans literally were so angry at him for the lousy job. And he's supposed to be like a hot young star, if that's a hot young star. I guess I just don't know stardom anymore. That is not his style. That's not a star. But age, as you say, boot and then add edge.
Edge put it. I don't see him dealing with President Xi of China. I don't see him meeting successfully with Kim Jong un. I don't see him dealing. And nobody has been tougher with Russia than Donald Trump. I don't see him deal with Vladimir Putin. And we have good relationships with them and many others. Except now we're no longer the suckers, like with NATO. We protect Europe. We spend hundreds of billions of dollars and they're not paying their fair share.
So last year I went I said, folks, sorry, you got to pay your fair share. 16 years, it was going like this. The contribution. And now it's like a rocket ship.
One hundred billion dollars. And I said to him, great people. Twenty eight nations, including the U.S., I said to him, listen. We're taking care of you. You screw us on trade and you don't pay military bills. This is not a good deal for the United States. So we're taking care of trade. We want to do a nice and slow and easy. You know, we had a world balance, but the European Union is terrible to us.
Adrey Terrible, frankly. They're as tough or tougher than China. Just smaller numbers. That's the only difference with China. Five hundred and seven billion, as you look over years, for many, many years they've been taken. And guys like Biden say, oh, well, what's up? Well, he was there eight years. We'd stop that. Now Trump is stopping at Trump's. So Representative Ayanna Pressley. She related in any way to Elvis?
I don't know. Who knows? You never know. She thinks that people with the same skin color all need to think the same. She said we don't need any more brown faces that don't want to be brown voices. We don't need black faces that don't want to be a black voice. And. This would be. We did fall to people that have taken a lot of shots to the face, but they wouldn't attack some of these people in this room.
They're not attacking bikers for Trump. They're not. Or milen. They're attacking a single man standing there with a camera who never got hit and never hit back before in his life. They don't attack the people they attack. Picture that wouldn't look too good for. People, these are sick. Bad people remember that these are bad people. They don't get the bad press, the press doesn't want to talk to them. They are very evil. They're hitting people over the head with sticks and I mean sticks.
I mean, bats, even they're whacking people with bats. They're very brave. They were shot with a mask and they covered. Then they go home to mom and dad. They don't want mom and dad to know where they were.
But they always attack people that really can't defend. That's very brave. They will show up with a mask and they're covered. Then they go home to mom and dad. They don't want mom and dad to know where they were, but they always attack people that really can't defend themselves very well, right. They're not attacking this group. They're not attacking North Carolina. So these congresswomen, their comments are helping to fuel the rise of a dangerous militant hard left, but that some they are very evil, they're hitting people over the head with sticks and I mean sticks.
I mean, bats, even they're whacking people with bats. They're very brave. They were shot with a mask and they're covered because then they go home to mom and dad. They don't want mom and dad to know where they were, but they always attack people that really can't defend themselves very well. Right. They're not attacking this group. They're not attack in North Carolina. So these congresswoman, their comments are helping to fuel the rise of a dangerous militant hard left, but that's OK because we're going to win this election like nobody's ever seen.
Tonight, I have a suggestion for the hate filled extremists who are constantly trying to tear our country down. They never have anything good to say. That's why I say, hey, if they don't like it, let them leave.
Let them. They're always telling us how to run and how to do this, how do you know what if they don't love it? Tell him to leave it. And now watch, I'll go back to. No, no, sir. That was so controversial, sir. No, I'm just saying it's their choice. They can come back when they want, but, you know, they don't love our country. I think in some cases they hate our country and they're so angry.
Even yesterday, they won on the stage. I said, let me watch this. And the anger, they were trying to be nice, but it's hard. It's hard for them to do that. The choice that every American has never been more clear. That's true. The Democrat agenda is anti-worker, anti-jobs, anti citizen, anti-family and anti. Common sense. With the exception of all of those Democrats that voted for us today, we'll give them a fine.
They are fine and they, you know, you lose to them. It's different. It's OK. It's called normal political back and forth. But I want to tell you something. The Democrats are being so vile and so vicious, moving so far left. It's out of control. It's at a control.
The Republican agenda is pro-worker, pro-jobs, pro-family, pro-growth, and one hundred percent pro American. So we're thrilled tonight to be joined by several North Carolina Republican leaders, really great people, they've been so helpful to me and they're doing an incredible job. Lieutenant Governor Dan fiRies.
North Carolina Treasurer Dale Fallwell. Greenville Mayor PJ Connolly, I hear he does a good job. And North Carolina GOP chair Michael Whately. I want to also. When we needed it most, Senator Tom. And we got to get out and work and make sure he gets reelected. And also. Then it gives Mark Walker and. And two friends of mine that to some. Holck's of impeachment, where they could be bask in the glory of victory. I said.
Credible NCAA wrestling champion, great guy. He wanted to stay back. I said, you sure you don't want to come? I do want to come, but I really want you to win today, if you don't mind. I said, OK, let's you better stay back. If I see you here, I'm going to be very angry. And they did their job, didn't they? This man is from the great state of Ohio, Congressman Jim Jordan.
And we're going to do this quickly, but it's just important that you get out and vote. There are two great people I want to introduce. The next member of Congress from North Carolina's 3rd Congressional District just won a great race. Dr. Greg Murphy, Greg is a winner. Thank you, President Trump, for coming back to eastern North Carolina. This is Trump Country. I promise, if elected your congressman, I will be a congressman that has our president's back.
The third district, the third district is not going to elect another Pelosi congressman. It is not going to do that. So we thank him for coming eastern North Carolina and we are here to support him. Thank you all. You know, Greg will be great on jobs. All the things you want tough-on-crime strong on borders, pushing the wall, he'll be pushing it like nobody, but we're building the wall. But what push you get? It's like pulling teeth.
We've got six lawsuits on the wall. We've won two of them. We're going to win others. But you think it's easy, don't you, folks? You think this is easy, but we're building a lot of wall and we hope if we can win that final one. So important, it's going before the Supreme Court. We'll have over 400 miles of wall built by the end of. So go out, get Greg elected. Great victory, by the way.
That was a great primer and a great victory that same day. There's another crucial election in North Carolina's 9th. Can you know? Right. You know what we're talking about? Nine. I know it's not here, but it's very close, right? Ninth Congressional District, the Democrat in the race is an ultra liberal named Dan McCreadie wants to take away your guns. He wants to raise your taxes. He doesn't care about borders, he likes open borders and he really admires socialism.
I don't think that works too well in North Carolina. Does it work too well in our country? We're joined tonight by the Republican candidate who is really a special man, a great man. He's gonna be a great, great congressman, Dan Bishop. So as President Trump said, there are two dann's in this race. Dan McCready's said that Donald Trump is the greatest threat to democracy ever and backed crooked Hillary. Dan McCready took money from Bill Horn Omar.
And Mr. President, Dan McCreadie wants to repeal your tax cuts. Now he would be the wrong man. As for me, I'm going to go to Washington and I'm going to stand with President Donald J. Trump. And that makes me look right down. And with the help of President Trump, we're going to win the Ninth District. So go to vote. Dan Bishop, dot.com sign up in Hill. Thank you. Thank you again. Thank you, Dan.
. And he will indeed defend your values, your family, and he will always defend our Second Amendment. Unlike their opponents, they are really into destroying.
Who've been violently operating for more than 10 years, we got them all.
We think they are no good with conducting brutal medieval style killings. You know, medieval style is like little pieces, little pieces, little pieces, beautiful style, including the dismemberment of their victims. And they enjoyed every minute of it. These are sick people. When I call them animals, Nancy Pelosi said, how dare he use that name? These are human beings. I don't think. Most of those indicted were in our country illegally, 19 to be exact, 19 of 22.
Think of that. They want to protect. These are savage beast. These are savage killers. And they should have been brought out a long time ago by the Obama administration. We're bringing M.S. 13 out by the thousands, getting them the hell out of our country. And when you read about deportation and Sunday, you got a lot of people on Sunday, but we have a lot of people and we're always shooting for the bad ones first, which makes sense, right?
But when you hear about that, we always want to get. And by the way, you know how dangerous it is for these ICE agents, these ICE and Border Patrol. But ice. They go into a nest. They call it a nest, a nest of these killers. They're tough. They're smart. And you know what? They're great patriots. They love our country. The danger that they have is. And I just want to salute.
And I have to tell you, I want to salute ICE and Border Patrol.
And I want to support. I want to support and salute law enforcement in the United States. These are our great people. These are great people and they don't get the credit they deserve. But you know what? I tell them all the time. You have no idea how much the American people, the American public. You have no idea how much they love you and respect you. Law enforcement. In the recent Democratic debate, every single candidate, everyone Biden was a little bit slower with the hand.
It didn't work so well. They raised their hand in favor of giving free government healthcare. They raised their hand in giving a lot of other things that I don't think you're going to be happy with. Illegal aliens will be very nicely covered. How about California? They just approved one hundred million dollars. They just approved a hundred million dollars to take care of the needs of illegal immigrants. And then you look on the sidewalks of Los Angeles, the sidewalks of San Francisco, Nancy Pelosi's district.
Nobody's ever seen anything like it in the history of our country. What's happening there? So if you don't want Democrats to raid your health care, to steal away your money, to bankrupt your country, then you have a choice. You must vote Republican.
All American citizens, including millions and millions of legal immigrants who work hard to come into our country, who study wait in line sometimes for 10 years and who respect our laws and follow the rules, they deserve a government that is loyal to them.
They work hard. You can't say you love our country if you want to destroy it through open borders. Open borders are a disaster. Human trafficking. You know, the first time I heard as a politician human trafficking. Nobody talks about it. It sounded almost like an ancient crime many, many years ago, hundreds of years, thousands of years ago. Human trafficking. It's the worst now throughout the world because of the Internet. It's the worst it's ever been and the worst treated of all children.
But it's women. Women. The Democrats want to do nothing about it. Human trafficking is worse than it ever has been in the history of the world. Not just this. This is not a United States problem. This is all over the world, human trafficking. It's a terrible, terrible thing. And we got to solve it. You know, most of it comes through in this country, our southern border, where we don't have the wall.
They're not going through our points. They're not going through areas where we have security, where we have guards, where we have gates, where we have all sorts of equipment. No. They ride through the desert and they make a left where you don't have the wall. It's so simple. Everybody knows it. You know, the Democrats all know it because five years ago, before I was here, they all wanted it. Now they don't want it.
You know why? They don't want it for political reasons. And you know what? It's going to cost them a lot of points in the election. I think probably close to. And just lastly, Democrats also support deadly sanctuary cities which release violent criminal aliens onto our streets. You know, where we just picked up these 22 thugs, these 22 monsters, we just picked him up in where? Los Angeles. Sanctuary City. Wonderful Sanctuary city. Tom, tell us, Senator recently introduced a bill to give American victims the right to sue sanctuary cities and hold them accountable for the thousands of lives they have shattered.
They've shattered these. Thank you very much, John. Every nation has the right to establish and enforce immigration rules in its national interest. It's very simple, isn't it? It's common sense. It's so simple and the voters understand it. We expect that those who seek to join our society will obey our laws, revere our constitution, cherish our history, support themselves financially, and embrace our American values and love our American flag.
We believe in an immigration system based on merit, merit. Where they come in, we have so many companies coming in, automobile companies, companies of all types. And we need workers. We actually need workers. We have the lowest unemployment rate that we've had in 51 years. Soon it'll be the lowest ever. We need workers, but they have to come in when they can help our country. They have to come in based on merit. And we're putting in bills and let's see what happens.
Otherwise, we'll just wait till we win back the House, win the Senate, win the presidency. Democrats have never been further outside of the mainstream. They're going crazy, folks, they're going crazy.
More than 130 Democrats in Congress have signed up for Bernie Sanders total government takeover of health care. That night. This is one of the great contests won't happen. He knows that, you know, the guy never passed the bill. He did. He did nothing. He's actually not even a Democrat is an Independent. Either he's running, but which he miss this time. Hey, Bernie, let me save you a lot of time and effort, Bernie.
You you missed your time. It got taken from you four years ago, Bernie. He's not doing too well. But that's OK. I got to hand it to him. He's up there ranting and raving and going like a lunatic. I said to our first lady the other day I was watching Birdie and he's screaming, his hair's all crazy. Hi. I'm going to do this. I'm going to do that. No more college loans, no more cost for anything.
Nothing. Not you're not going to pay for anything. I mean, he's desperate now. He's desperate. You don't have to pay for anything. You know, I joked, I said and everybody will get a free Rolls-Royce. Every family gets a free Rolls-Royce. Every family. And the media said Donald Trump is exaggerating. He knows that they're not getting a Rolls-Royce. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Don't put it. Don't put it.
Don't put it. Don't put that. I said free Rolls Royce. No, but Bernie's desperate. Now I watch him up there. It's a sad situation, but I think they're all sad when you get right down to. Phrases. OK. We're in this incredible state, North Carolina. They have your best economy that you've ever had. Forget the country for a second. You have the best economy you've ever had. You have your best unemployment numbers.
You have the most people working than at any time in the history of your state. You have your best black unemployment numbers, best Hispanic unemployment numbers, best women unemployment numbers, best Asian unemployment number, OK. So what's my whoever the opponent is, what they're going to say? North Carolina. I'm going to do a great job. You have the best numbers in the history of our country, in your state. So I don't know. And we won by a lot.
And we won by a lot. You know, I was telling Mike, I was telling my son, Eric Trump and LA is here, by the way, who is born in North Carolina. They do a good job. Lara, do you love this state? And her brother's here. I have I have to tell you, he went to this college. And Brad Paşa skell is here. The world's tallest campaign manager in the history of the world.
He's the tallest in his job, but most importantly, he's the best. World's tallest manager. But he's the best manager to thank you, Brett. Great job. And he just told me. Our poll numbers are through the roof. He just told me that. So I'll take that. I mean, we are a year and a half away, but we're doing well. You said you'd know you'd be the first to know. Number one, you wouldn't be here.
OK. You wouldn't be here. We haven't had an empty seat. In any event, I don't believe that we've ever been to. I don't think we've ever.
We always have people we haven't had. Then. You look I mean, anywhere, North Carolina, Ohio, no matter where we go, we pack it. And we have thousands and thousands of people and we put screens outside and not tonight. That's a good. We got one hundred degrees out, but you still have thousands of people out there. We could have sold this arena out. You know that. We could have sold this arena out tonight ten times.
Can you believe that? Which I think that's like a poll, right? That's like a poll because when Biden goes out, I see Sleepy Joe. He says they had one hundred and fifteen people show up. One hundred and fifty people. That's our first row. The Democrat record on health care is one of deception and destruction. The last administration said a lie. If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.
Twenty eight times a total lie. My administration is defending your sacred right to choose the doctor and the plan that you want, and we are offering plans up to 60 percent cheaper than Obamacare and a lot of people are starting to forget that.
Better health care will also always protect peace. You have to remember this, you ready? Because they give us a bum rap. Patients with pre existing conditions are protected by Republicans, much more so than protected by Democrats who will never be able to pull it off. Pre-existing conditions and you know, the job we've done on health care, it's not talked about, but we're also doing something. It's been phenomenal. We have 180 million people right now really happier in private plans.
And you know what? They're going to be taken away under the Democrats plan. All of those people that are thrilled where they went out and negotiated across state lines, all of the things they did, they went out, negotiated. Great private plans are still going to be taken away from you under this plan. Now, I only hope they don't change because, you know, we're talking too soon. We've got a year and a half left. It's like when I called Pocahontas Pocahontas, I should have waited six months because she then went out and got that test, 1000 24th.
And I've always said I have more Indian blood in me than she has in her. And I have none. I have known. But it's more than she has. 1020. But I brought it up too soon, so I don't talk about anymore. But if she should be the candidate, which I tend to doubt. But if she should be, will bring it up again. And I think it'll be very successful. One thousand twenty four. How about this?
I was driving her crazy. So she went out and hired a guy to check the blood. I'm sure he had a lot of fun doing that. He checked her blood and found out that many, many, many, many, many, many years ago there could have been somebody and he could have been in the. And then the news got together and they said, we don't want her. We want Trump. We want to. They want.
We've taken historic action. So we've taken historic action to fight the opioid epidemic, what problem? And just today it was just announced before I came in that drug overdose deaths. We're working so hard on this, including our vice president, including our first lady, including everybody in the Trump administration. It's dropped for the first time in more than 30 years. It's gone down first time. And in North Carolina, we're far from finished. It's a big problem.
It declined to 8 percent last year. That's a lot because it was just going up like a rocket. Virtually every top Democrat also now supports late term abortion, ripping babies straight from the mothers. Right up until the moment of birth. Well, then you have the gentleman from our governor from Virginia. So we're talking about late term. He's talking about the baby is born before the mother makes the decision. That was the first. That's the first I've heard of it.
That's the first most of you have heard of it. And then they pass legislation in various states saying that's OK, this is a baby that's born. This is a late term.
This is a baby that's born nobody's ever heard anything like that. Nobody's ever seen anything like it. Nobody's ever seen anything like it. And that actually when he had the scandal that became. Can you believe it? The second biggest story. Can you believe that? How important it is. And yet that was the second biggest story. And what a shame when that's the second biggest story. What happened to our values? Republicans believe that every life is a sacred gift of God.
And that's why I've asked Congress to prohibit extreme late term abortion of babies. Democrats are now the party of high taxes, high crime, open borders, late term abortion, intolerance and division. The Republican Party is the party for all Americans and American values.
We are the party of the American worker, the American family, and we are the party of the American dream. This is the proud banner.
The Republican Party will carry into the Republican National Convention next summer in the great city of Charlotte, North Carolina. Don't disappoint me. That should be good for at least 10 points. Right. These are some of the greatest ladies. I see them in Ohio and Florida. We love you, too. Thank you. Really? How many have you been to? Just said A. What's the number? All but two. I've done hundreds. And then they say women don't like Trump.
I think they can, you know. I see him that great, great ladies. You're great. You know, it's interesting with women. So women want to have strong military protection. They want to have strong borders. They want to have strong law enforcement. They want to have great education. They want to have low taxes for their family, not high taxes. They want to have all the things that we talk about. Why wouldn't they want Trump more than anybody else?
The other side going to go. And they did in the last election and we're doing a lot better. You know, the difference is the last election I was a successful businessman running for president, said I was going to do things. And by the way, really successful. Let's show you something. Someday soon, I'm going to show you something. You know, they say who was really successful? He wasn't successful. He's really smart. He's really stupid.
But he's trying to take over the world. You know, they have so many messages. He's really stupid. The next week, Donald Trump has a sinister plot to take over the world. Can't be trusted because they actually think it's working right. I sent one of these so-called comedians the other day. I mean, you know, pretty respected comedian. He said he's not leaving. I'm telling you, he's not leaving. He'll never leave. He'll win this election.
And in 24, I'm telling you, he's not leaving. He's going to stay.
So we did through our friend dance Corvino. We did a Time magazine cover. I was on so many times, I don't even read this thing. And it says Trump. 2014 twenty eighteen. Right. But it says twenty, here's where we go. We started 16. We go to 20. We go to 24. Did you see it? Denis's twenty eight. Thirty two. Thirty six. Forty. Forty three. Now, we don't need any more time.
We don't need any more time. We need one more. Senator came to my office, sir. I'm six for seven. I'm great. I'm 67. Seven, sir. I can give you great advice. That's it, Senator. I'm one for one. But it happened to be the president. And now I want to be too far, too 2 to do. So we have 16. We have 20. We have 24. And, you know, it's very interesting.
They were really people out there. I think I'm not leaving. Can you believe it? Hey, maybe that is a good idea. Let's think about what you want to drive them crazy. They're going to go crazy. All I have to do is say, let's think about it. They're going to go crazy. No, no. I promise. I promise. 2024. I like. By that time, just so you know, by that time our country will be so well seeded, it will be so strong, like never, ever.
But everything that we built, low taxes, strong military, taking care of our vets, all of the things we've done can be decimated very quickly if the wrong person gets in. Especially now. You know, I've always said twenty sixteen was the most important election maybe in the history of our country. A lot of people felt that. So I don't know, I can't say this is more important, what we did was a miracle. Not to us it wasn't.
But a lot of people said it was the greatest election we've ever had. There's never been anything like it.
Never been such exciting. Never been such excitement. But you know what, if we don't win in 2020, everything that we've done. Seriously, though, everything that we've done, your foreign ones, they're going to crash the whole thing. It's gonna come down like a stack of cards. So in a certain way, let's say this is of equal importance. By that time, we'll have values instilled. We'll have free enterprise. And still people are working now.
We have the lowest food stamps that we've had in many years.
Lowest food stamp because people. So I really think it's, you know, at least equal it's equal. Maybe it's a little less wood. A hell knows. I just know this. It can disappear very, very quickly. We have to get out. We have to vote. That's why I'm starting early. I mean, we. Can you believe it? We have less. I mean, I see all these clowns on television. So I guess we have to counteract them a little bit.
But this is not what you want, right? None of them. This is not what you want. Running this incredible country of ours. Every day we make good on the motto promises made, promises kept. I've had people back there, I've had people back there that don't like me. And somebody said very nicely that he's actually made certain promises and he's actually kept more promises than he's made. It's true. I mean, I've done things I've done things that I never I never said we were going to get.
As an example, with events that we were going to get choice, that we were going to have the ability to fire people that don't treat our vets properly.
We can fire them when they've been trying to get that for forty four years. JOYCE They've been trying to get practically from the beginning. JOYCE So simple. And yet they never got it. Nobody got it through. We're good at getting things through. We've done more than we said we would. And a man I know who I don't like, a business man, very, very, very successful visit one of the most successful. But I don't like him.
Never liked him. He never liked me. By the way, in fact, I would go a step further. He kids, he cannot stand me. And I saw him about two months ago and he came up to me. I said, how you doing? Very warm, you know. Hey, how you doing? Let's get out of here. And he said, I'm doing good. You're doing good. I said, Yeah. I said, you know, you don't like me and I don't like you.
I never have like you and you never have liked me. But you're going to support me because you're a rich guy. And if you don't support me, you're going to be so goddamn poor. You're not going to believe.
And he said to me, Mr. President, you know, Cosby, Mr. Perez, everyone calls me Mr. President. It's true. It's a funny thing. You said, Mr. President, you're right. I'm supporting you. I think you're doing a great job. And maybe we didn't get along. But it's not like he has a choice. He has no choice. And on top of that, it's a good choice because we've done the right thing. And it is funny, you know, with the name Mr.
President. I have friends, really good friends. And they've always called me Don Donald, deejay. They call me anything. Right. And you lose all your friends when you're president because they're all afraid to talk to you. Does that make sense? No, it's true. Except except for these six, seven ladies up here, they always talk. They're not intimidate. No, it's true. I have guys. I have wonderful friends. New York developers, tough guy, smart guys.
They're rich. They're this that I have middle of the road. I have poor. I have everybody. Poor guys. Middle of the road and rich guys. Doesn't matter. Rich guys call up the president. How are you, sir? Oh, it's Richard. Oh, good. Rich. Hey, Richard, loosen up. This a guy used to. Hey, Don, how you doing? Let's go to dinner now. Sir. Is everything OK?
You're doing good, sir. I said, Richard, call me Donald. Like you always did. Call me Don. Always call me down. OK. Thank you, Donald. Thank you very much. And then two minutes later. Mr. President, it's been so great. I lost all my friends. They've tightened up. They've choked, you know, that is they've child taken, they can't breathe because people have such respect for the office of the president.
They have respect for the office of the president. They have respect for our country. Again, our country is respected again. We've confirmed more than one hundred and twenty five federal judges to apply the law as written, including two Supreme Court justices. Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. We've launched a historic initiative to reduce the price of prescription drugs. And last year, this is. I'm so proud of this because we have no help from the Democrats. Last year, for the first time in over 50 years, drug prices went down.
That was to give former prisoners a second chance at life. We passed groundbreaking criminal justice reform. It's a big thing. You know, prison is they've gone out jail. They never had an economy like this. And we did a lot of things because they got out of jail. They don't have a chance. They always go back. Most of the time now they're coming out and we have programs. But most people who have this great economy where people are hiring prisoners and you have to see the reviews they're getting, they're getting phenomenal reviews.
It's a beautiful thing. It's a beautiful thing. What's happening with prisoners, they get out and they can actually get a job. And that's what's happening we're very proud of. We're expanding opportunity zones so that no American is left behind. It's one of the great successes, the opportunity zones. Nobody talks about it. What are the great successes? And thanks to our pledge to America's workers, private sector partners will provide apprenticeships and job training to 9 million Americans.
And then. And whenever I hear that word apprentice., I say I love that word. That was a good. They figured, you know what we'll do? We'll get our own Schwarzenegger to take my place. That didn't work out too well. That didn't work out too well. We had 14 seasons. Think of that, The Apprentice. I proudly signed for bipartisan human trafficking laws securing 400 million dollars to support victims of human trafficking. And we have secured soon to be three years record funding for our military.
We want to cut budgets, but this is beyond budget. I would through the United States from the horrible, one sided, disgusting Iran nuclear deal, and Iran is a different country today. My administration proudly recognized the true capital of Israel and opened the American embassy in Jerusalem. Power some day they all said many, many presidents have said we're going to do then they never did. I know why. Because the pressure on them was enormous not to do it.
And then on top of it, a couple of months ago, I just approved the Golan Heights for Israel, the Golan Heights.
Another thing. Fifty two years they tried to do that. They didn't get it done. So we're doing good. We also recognize the legitimate government of Venezuela and we condemn those that want to stop freedom in that country and other. Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country, will never, ever be a socialist country. It just won't. Vote for any Democrat in 2020 is a vote for the rise of radical socialism and the destruction of the American dream.
Frankly, the destruction of our country. That's what's going to happen. Take a look around. Their party is afflicted with an ideological sickness that protects foreign borders but refuses to protect our own borders. Think of it. They fight all over, though. A lot of those people are coming back home. Folks aren't coming back home a lot. We defeated ISIS. You know the caliphate in Syria. We're bringing our soldiers. ISIS does not like me too much, but I came here and it was a mess.
It was a mess and I met with generals. General, believe it or not, one general. His name is Raisin. I said, what's your name, sir? This guy's like out of a movie, sir. What? She's going to be famous after this, but who cares? What's your name again, sir? My name is Raisin. I said raisin. Like you mean a little raisin? Yes, sir. It's my name. That's what they call.
What's your last name? Kane. I think you mean your name is Raisin Kane. You're gonna be. I said raising Cain, you're my kind of general. Let me talk to you. Raising Cain. Get over here. And my previous generals said this is going to be a long time before we take out the caliphate. I said they're raising Cain and a couple of other generals that were there. These guys are central casting like from a movie to better.
They're stronger, bigger, tougher, meaner and actually better looking in a certain way. But they like from a movie, there's nobody in Hollywood plays a role like this. I said generals, I've been told, is going to take a year, two years to get 100 percent. Remember, I want to pull them out. We're down to 1 percent. Everyone went crazy like that one. But they said it could take a long time. I said to raising Cain and the other generals, General, how long can it take?
They should, sir, serve one month. I said, what? We're going to hit him from the front. We're gonna hit him from the back. We're going to hit him from the side, sir. We're going to hit him like they never got hit before. We were never allowed to do this.
And we're not just going to head home from our temporary base in serious. We're going to hit him from Iraq. We get to hit him from places that they never knew existed, sir. They'll be hit, so. God damn hard, sir. They will be. Thank you very much. Very shortly. Very, very shortly. It was over. We had 100 percent of the caliphate.
And these people screw around for years. Obama, President Obama. My generals did a great job. I flew there. I flew to Iraq. Remember, I'm an Air Force One and they notified me, sir. We're 45 minutes out, sir. We have to close all windows. We have to turn off all the lights in the plane, sir. All windows. All lights have to be off, sir. We're turning off the lights outside. And the runway lights, sir.
They're going to be at a very dim, frankly, if you're not a 30 year old pilot. You can't see him because I went there. I said, I don't see any light pilot as we're landing. I said, I don't see. And then I thought to myself. Think of it. We've spent almost a trillion dollars in the Middle East and we've got to turn off the lights of an airplane to land. How bad is it? They didn't do their job.
We did our job and the military did their job. But we fight to sort of just keep going. We don't fight to win. I fight to win.
I fight. I fight to win. So we learning this big, beautiful Air Force One. And I'm saying, Major, I don't see a runway. Yes, sir, it's right up ahead. You know, guys, 30 years old or something, you know, just. They'll get me in that. They'll say majors aren't 30. So maybe he's thirty five. Whatever you've been saying. Yes, sir. That's right. I don't see it, Major.
How about lifting up? Let's go around. That's the last thing we want to do in that part of the world. He said, sir, it's right there, sir. And we're landing and I still haven't seen the light. But these guys with the greatest pilots in the world, with the greatest military in the world, we have the greatest equipment in the world.
So you must never forget the 2020 election is all about one thing you. It's about you.
It's about your family. It's about your future and the fate of your beautiful, loving country.
And that's what it is. We begin our North Carolina campaign with the best record, the best results, the best agenda and the only positive vision for our nation's future. We love our nation. Our nation is great today. It's going to be much greater every year. It's getting better and better. We have turned this big, beautiful, mighty ship. We have turned it around. It's getting better, better, better. Together, we will continue unleashing the power of American enterprise so every American can know the dignity of work and the pride of a paycheck.
With your help, we will elect a Republican Congress. Those great gentlemen that just left. To create a safe, modern, fair and lawful system of immigration, we will enact trade deals and they are going like you won't even belief. That doesn't mean the other countries are thrilled with me. There was a recent poll. Germany likes Obama better than Trump. A lot better, I said. Of course, because. Really positive vision for our nation's future.
We love our nation. Our nation is great today. It's going to be much greater. Every year it's getting better and better. We have turned this big, beautiful, mighty ship. We have turned it around. It's getting better. Batter, batter. Together, we will continue unleashing the power of American enterprise so every American can know the dignity of work and the pride of a paycheck. With your help, we will elect a Republican Congress. Those great gentlemen that just left.
To create a safe, modern, fair and lawful system of immigration, we will enact trade deals and they are going like you won't even belief. That doesn't mean the other countries are thrilled with me. There was a recent poll. Germany likes Obama better than Trump. A lot better, I said, of course, because I'm making them pay their bills. I'm saying you got to pay. I say I'm. You got to pay. I'm. Obama would go and make a speech live.
I go and make a speech. I say, let me speak to Angela. I'm glad you're gonna pay your bills. You're way behind. So I would think that they should. They should all like it when you hear they like me better. I'm not doing my job. I'm not doing. They did a poll on one of these networks and there was a Donald Trump is not liked in Europe nearly as much as President Obama said or President Bush or anybody or anybody.
Fact dislike, but actually they respect us. That's more important to that beautiful baby. Look at that. Wow, what a baby. What a baby. That is a beautiful baby. That's like from an advertisment. Perfect. Look how happy that baby is so beautiful. Thank you, darling. That's really nice. The great thing is that your husband. That's a great thing. Thank you. Congratulations, husband. What a picture. But we're going to have the country all set for your child.
OK. Because that's what it's about. The media will say that's a prop, they say no babies, so beautiful, that had to be a setup. I never saw that guy in my life, which is true. Thank you. Good luck. Thank you very much. We will enact trade deals that ensure more products are proudly stamped with those four beautiful words made in America, made in the USA. Either one is OK with me. Keep America great.
That's right. We will give school choice to millions of underserved children who are trapped in failing government schools. We will defend privacy, free speech, religious liberty and the right to keep and bear arms. Gotta take your guns. And above all, we will never stop fighting for the values that bind us together as one great nation. As one America. One America. We believe in the American constitution and we believe in the rule of law. We believe in the dignity of work and in the sanctity of life.
We believe that faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, are the true American way. We believe that children like your child should be taught to love our country, honor our history, and always respect our great American flag. And we live by the words of our national motto in God We Trust. We are fighting for every American mom and dad who wants to protect this land of liberty for their precious children. We have been blessed with the greatest free public on the face of the earth.
But it was going in the wrong direction and now we are turning it around. It is going better than ever before. And we're going to keep it that way. We're going to keep it that way. With your help, with your devotion, with your drive, we are going to keep on working. We are going to keep on fighting and we are going to keep on winning.
We are one movie, one movie. Think of that. We are one big, beautiful movement. There has never been a movement like that. You don't hear it that often. They know it, but you don't hear in the history of our country. There has never been a movement like this, and this movement is stronger now than it was three years ago. This is the strongest movement in the history of our country. But we are where one movement, where one people, one family and one glorious nation under God.
We're doing things that nobody thought was possible. No other nation thought it was possible what we're doing. We are so respected. You have no idea how our nation has gone so far up in the eyes and the minds of the rest of the world.
So respect. Because together we will make America wealthy again.
Of course, we did just hit the highest price in the history of the market. So pretty soon, I hate to say I don't want to ruin the rhetorical skill, but that is sort of like getting a little obsolete. We will make our nation wealthy again. The fact is we have the strongest stock market in our history. So I think I have to change it. You've all heard it many times, right? We will make America wealthy again.
We're gonna have to say we have made America wealthy. So here's one we will make America strong again. No, no. We're gonna have to change this. We have made America stronger.
And just so you know, we have made America great again. Magga, how do you give up America? Make America great again. But we've done that. Can you imagine if keep America great. Didn't work. I had the greatest phrase probably in the history of politics in this country.
Look at her beautiful hat. Looks very good on you. But look at this. Look at those beautiful hats.
But, you know, make America great again. But we've done that. Our new phrase for the 20 20 campaign is keep America great.
