[00:00:26.03]
From. Across the plain. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you to Vice President Pence. He's a good guy. We've done a great job together. And Merry Christmas. Miss you again. Thank you, miss. What a victory we had in Michigan. And what a victory was that. What are the greats? Was that the greatest evening? But I'm thrilled to be here with thousands of hardworking patriots as we celebrate the miracle of Christmas, the greatness of America and the glory of God.

[00:02:42.09]
Thank you very. And did you notice that everybody is saying Merry Christmas again? Did you notice? I remember when I first started this beautiful trip, this beautiful journey, I just said to the first lady, you're so lucky I took you on this fantastic chair. It's so much fun. They want to impeach you. They want to do worse than that. By the way, by the way, by the way, it doesn't really feel like we're being impeached.

[00:03:21.06]
The country is doing better than ever before. We did nothing wrong. We did nothing wrong. And we have tremendous support in the Republican Party like we've never had before. Nobody's ever had this of. But this sacred season in our country is thriving and it's thriving truly like it has never it has never happened before to the extent what's happening now. And by the way, your state, because of us, not because of local government, but because of us because of the job that we've done.

[00:03:56.05]
Because I understand she's not fixing those potholes. That's what the word was all about, roads and they want to raise those gasoline taxes and you don't want to do that. But she's not fixing the potholes. But Michigan's had the best year it's ever had. As for. And that's because we have auto companies expanding and thriving and they're coming in from Japan and they're coming in from a lot of other places. Look what's happening. And, you know, I don't know if you know this, but probably 10 years ago I was honored.

[00:04:38.09]
I was the man of the year by I think somebody whoever I was, the man of the year in Michigan. Can you believe it? Long time. And that was long before I ever decided to do this. I was happy. I had a beautiful life. What the hell did I do this for? But look how we're doing. Do we love it? I love. But anyway, I was the man of the year and probably like close to 10 years ago and I came to Michigan.

[00:05:15.00]
He said, you're still the man of the year. Thank you. So I came in and I remember the speech so well, I said, why are you allowing them to steal your car companies? Why are you allowing them to go to Mexico and to go from China where they come in from China? They build them in China. They sell them into our country with no tax. And you lose your jobs. You lose your factories. The companies leave and you get nothing.

[00:05:48.02]
Why are they right? I ask that a long time ago and we stopped it. We've stopped them.

[00:05:57.00]
You see that? And we just made the USMC, hey, we're getting rid of NAFTA, which I think is the worst trade deal ever. As very exciting, it's a great deal. It's a great deal, it's going to stop exactly what we were just talking about, it makes it very, very prohibitive. They couldn't do it, but they've got to pay a hell of a big price to do it. And history has proven that stops them.

[00:06:25.01]
But we have a great USMC that we negotiated with Mexico, with Canada. Now, from the standpoint of the farmers, you know what's going on. We had tremendous trade barriers in Canada. We had a tax on dairy products, 297 percent tariff. Nobody talked about it with Canada. And we had some really bad things with Mexico. We didn't have a wonderful deal. And if we didn't have a good deal, you know what I would have done.

[00:06:52.00]
Why? I would have put tariffs on both countries, and that would have been it, right? Unfortunately, the deal has been sitting with Nancy Pelosi for a long time. What happened? And she had a lot of pressure, especially from manufacturing areas, farm areas, a lot of pressure to sign it. So here's what happens. So I get along with labor. You know, I had a lot of union labor vote for me. Tremendous amount of labor in New York where I come from.

[00:07:25.08]
We have a lot of unions and that's OK. That's fine. So we left a little stuff for the union because we figured to get it signed. We'll give a little bit. And we did it. And we have one great deal. And now you have the Democrats tried to take credit for this deal, and that's OK. Whatever it takes. For seven months, it sits. They don't do anything we give. And by the way, I spoke to the unions the day before.

[00:07:50.08]
I say, fellows, you got to get it done. And you know, and union labor loves me. And I love you, too, sir.

[00:07:58.00]
I love you, too, sir. So we have a great deal with Mexico, with Canada. And it is trite. I say it out loud because I said to him right now, if they ever wanted to break the deal, that's okay. If somebody wants to break a deal with me, you always have to have an alternative. Right. And this country, the deals we made, you know, we did a deal with South Korea. That's great.

[00:08:19.09]
We did a deal with Japan, 40 billion dollar deal with Japan. And when I there was just a little piece of a deal. OK. That was a piece of a deal. And I said to Japan, look, you got to make this deal or we're going to put a 20 percent tariff on the cars. And that's more money than anything we're talking about. So we have Mazzara. Sara? Get around. Get her out of here.

[00:09:42.05]
Oh, well, you're about to hear the greatest speech you've ever heard. And that's going to be the publicity because all the fake news back there will say massive, right? Massive riots, fake news. But it seems they look like they won't say it. They won't say it because when we have protesters all in favor, they don't talk about it. But there's a slob. There's a real slob way. She'll get hell when she gets back home with mom, but.

[00:10:24.08]
But she made look, she screams a little bit and you know what I like to do avoid them because, you know, I'll tell you the big problem. I could hardly hear her. What happens is all of you people go crazy love. And the place. OK. So there's one disgusting person who made way, way. Who made it. I wouldn't say this, but made a horrible gesture with the wrong finger. Right. Now, they won't say that.

[00:10:52.00]
The fact is, they won't say if one of us did that. It would be like the biggest story ever. I think it's terrible. And I'll tell you the other thing. I don't know who the security company is, but the police came up. But they want to be so politically correct so they don't grab a risk likely and get her out. They say, oh, would you please come if you please come with me, sir. Ma'am, would you?

[00:11:16.06]
And then she gives the guy the finger and he. Oh, oh, you got to get a little bit stronger than that, folks. I hate to say I hate this. But of course, the guy's afraid that, you know, he'll grab a wrist lightly and he'll be sued for the rest of his life, that you've destroyed her life. But I think it's a terrible thing. And here's what happened. So these fakers back there. They're the most dishonest people in the world.

[00:11:47.03]
They'll go back. This is one person who made a horrible gesture only because the security band let her have so much time. And usually I have to say, the police do an incredible job. They do itselfand and they. Making another group of tarriffs, seven and a half percent. This gives us a lot of currency to do the Phase 2 deal, which they want to start, but we take it in billions of dollars and to help the farmers who were targeted 16 million and 12 billion the previous year helps the farmers.

[00:12:55.03]
So, you know, we do out of that big check that we get out, the money flows into the Treasury right out of the big check. We gave the farmers sixteen billion dollars and 12 billion for the previous. And you know, the incredible thing, and I was with a lot of farmers, I was with a group of 36 farmers at the White House. You know, they said to me, I said, don't worry about it.

[00:13:22.02]
We're going to take care, you guys. And I use the bad word in a word I used. We're going to get you a subsidy. And they said this two years ago. I said, how much were you targeted for? This was the first year, 12 billion, sir. The second year was 16. They were target. That's what they didn't get from China. So I said, all right, we're going to give you a subsidy of the same and we're going to take it out of the tariffs and we're gonna have billions and billions of dollars left over.

[00:13:50.06]
And they said, sir, we don't want money. We just want a level playing field. I've never seen that before. Still, they just want to be able to have a level playing field. I could because, you know, I sit at a lot of those meetings and whether it's countries or whether it's companies. Everybody wants money. The farmers just wanted a level playing field. But we took good care of our farmers that I can tell you.

[00:14:21.00]
And we made the largest ever investment in our military. Seven hundred and thirty eight billion dollars all made in the USA. Right. Bring. So we will have invested in our military. Since I'm here, which is less than three years, our military, by the way, in all due respect to the previous two administrations, our military was was depleted. It was depleted. It was in bad shape. We had fighter jets that were 35 years old.

[00:14:55.06]
We had planes that were 60, as you heard, where the father flew them. The grandfather flew him. And now the young son comes in. We've got the best equipment in the world now. Spent two and a half trillion dollars made in the USA. Two and a half trillion. We will shortly. That'll be all finished. We're going to have the greatest military and the best planes. We can have the best ships. We're building a lot of ships now.

[00:15:23.06]
We're building the most powerful weapons in the world. Now, we don't want to even talk about it. We never want to use them. But, you know, the way we're not going to have to use them is if we have them. We're building submarines, the power of which nobody's ever seen before. Nobody's ever seen before. You know, it's funny, we have these companies come in, I like to make good deals. You like to make good deals.

[00:15:54.06]
That's what we do, right? So these really countries that come in, prime ministers, presidents, sometimes dictators, those we can't deal with too much. Sir, we'd like to buy a nuclear submarine. I say no, thanks. I turn them all down. You have no idea how many people. But we're building some of the most powerful weapons ever made by man or woman kind. I say mankind.

[00:16:20.01]
And woman. See, in the old days, in the old days, I would say mankind. Now I say mankind woman kind this way. I don't get in trouble with our friends, but we have the most powerful in the world. And what we're doing is incredible, what we're doing with missiles, with rockets, with everything. And you know what? Again, we don't want to ever have to use it. But we will never have anything like what's mostly been built.

[00:16:51.08]
We have the F-35. It's stealth. That's fine. And I was at one of the areas where they're displaying it. And I went up to the pilots. And honestly, they're better looking than Tom Cruise. OK. Good movie, good guy, too. By the way. Faces equal, maybe slightly better. The body's bigger, stronger. They can definitely make us like me. They can definitely fight. They're the real deal. These guys are so good looking.

[00:17:29.02]
I said you could be a movie star. Go to Hollywood. No, sir, I like doing what I'm doing. So I said to these guys, are you going to see it just like central casting? I said I said, fellas, how good is this plan? They said, sir, it's great. Why? Because the enemy can't see it. That helps stealth. It's actually called superstar. So I said, you mean they can't see.

[00:17:53.05]
So you shoot at them, but they can't. He said they have no idea where we are, sir. I said, that sounds good to me. Nobody does it. Nobody could do it. We have the whole thing. And we bought a lot of those planes. We've ordered a lot of great stuff. And I won't tell you this story, but very early on, I thought we were going to have a problem. Someplace in one of the generals came up to me and said, sir, don't go, don't do it.

[00:18:14.06]
Why we don't have the ammunition. And I said two things. I never want to hear a president. Right. We never want to have a president hear that again. Nor do we want a president to have to go through the crap that we're going through. That. But you know, another thing we did, which to me is such an incredible thing to have done, it's such an honor. So our last U.S. armed forces, the last branch was the Air Force, right?

[00:18:48.00]
That was many, many decades ago. We are now building and we have now gotten funding for the sixth branch of the United States armed forces. The space force. So I'll be able to tell my kids someday and everybody else see that space force, I was my baby and you think that was easy. That's not easy because you have Democrats that do not like our military. They do not like. And we did something yesterday because for three years I would see.

[00:19:27.07]
People that run incredible people, the heads of the historically black colleges and universities in the country and every year that come in and they'd be looking for help. They needed help and they do need help with it. And it's great. And they do an incredible job. So many great schools, but they need help. And every year they have to come and come. I got to know, Max, I said the only bad thing is you won't see me too much anymore because we just provided record funding for our nation's historically black colleges and universities.

[00:20:07.02]
And it's long term, they're not going to have to come, so I said, look, you know, we could do it. Well, we do it every year. We'll do what we have. What do you want? They said, let us just have. So we'll miss him. But they are great people. They've done an incredible job. And our extraordinary jobs boom, which created another 266 thousand jobs last month. And then you add the undercount from the previous too much, it lost to 300000 jobs.

[00:20:39.09]
And, you know, they said if you're a business watcher, which I am, I love watching business. But they said they were guessing could be 70000, could be 80000, maybe 90, maybe 110. Somebody said then the number comes out 266 thousand with an a just. Remember about four months ago when we had one little period, right? We had one little period where there was a little downturn, this in 0 0, we think we're going into a recession.

[00:21:10.07]
I said, don't worry about it. We think we're going into a recession. They were willing to lose their wealth. They were willing for their stocks and whatever the hell they own. What do you guys own back there? Let it go. They'll go bust. They don't care anything to get rid of us, dummy us. And you know what? Then all of a sudden and now for the last couple of weeks, we've said brand new records in the history of the various stock markets.

[00:21:46.05]
So as of yesterday, we've had one hundred and thirty three record days in the stock market now and that's in less than three years.

[00:22:02.04]
So when I see that, I don't care because I don't I'm not allowed to have stock again of stock. They considered a conflict of interest and that I can understand. I mean, I can, but you know what? I'll tell you what. What I see. I see tremendous job growth because we're setting records. But you know what? I also see the four or one case where people are up 90 percent. They're up 97 percent. They're up 82 percent.

[00:22:32.05]
I tell you this story all the time. I mean, I have people coming up to me and a man came up, a policeman. I've told a story. But I had I've had many, so many times. But this guy in particular, because I was early and that was a year ago. That was a long time ago. Right now it's much higher than that. But he said, sure, I want to thank you. My wife thinks I'm a loser all my life.

[00:22:55.01]
We never did well with a four or one case with stocks. I everythingI invested. I'm up 72 percent, sir. She thinks I'm a financial genius. She's so in love with me. She sold. He said she's said, darling. I think you're one of the greatest investors, why don't you do this professionally? And I don't even know what I'm doing, sir. I just have all these stocks. So I just want to tell you, I look at a 4 or one K, everyone who has four or one case here.

[00:23:25.00]
Right. So that's what I see. I don't care about the rich ones. I care about everybody. I care. I care about everybody, actually. So Ford Motor Company just announced that it is investing 1.5 billion dollars in two auto factories in the Detroit area, creating another three thousand Michigan. And that's on top of the many other investments we've gotten from Japanese companies, car companies and other companies, but they're all coming in and a lot of them are coming to Michigan and I say, hey, go to Michigan.

[00:24:07.02]
Sometimes they'll go south and that's OK. Whatever. I want them in this country, but ideally, I want to fill them up. We're doing so well in Michigan with the auto companies. Now you're back. You're back.

[00:24:19.01]
So you're back. Very proud of. Very proud of him. But while we are creating jobs fighting for Michigan workers at achieving numbers that you've never seen before, incredible victories for the American people are happening. The radical left in Congress is consumed with hatred and envy and rage. You see what's going on. I'll tell you, these people are crazy. Yeah, over here, it's the economy, stupid. You know, that was Clinton saying, if you have a good economy, I have the greatest economy in the history of this country.

[00:24:54.01]
And nobody talks about nobody talks about, you know, if you're a Democrat. So if you can't if the economy is any good. And let me just tell you a little secret. If crooked Hillary would have won, your economy would have crashed. You were going down. The regulations were taking it down. The taxes were taking it down. Instead of being up 92 percent or whatever, you're up a lot. You would have been down. You would have been in less than half.

[00:25:21.08]
It was crashing for all those people that would say, oh, it's the Obama. Let me tell you something. You were dying. And if you look at that first period of a couple of months, it was a disaster, but it was heading south as sure as you're standing. And I'm sorry we couldn't get you seats. We didn't have any room. And by the way, 20000 people outside had to leave. You know, it's so cold outside.

[00:25:45.06]
We told them, don't worry about a screen. Go home. Go home and watch. But we had we had this is about a five thousand five hundred seat arena. And I said to my people, why so small? Are we are we spoiled? I watch these guys come in like Biden. He has. He has a big rally and they get ninety three people show up. No, it's true. I don't understand it. And did you see the new polls from USA Today came out?

[00:26:14.05]
I'm killing everybody and they hate me. USA Today hates. USA Today hates me, but there's a poll we're beating everybody, but so Biden has this rally like, you know, they got 200 seats, but only a small number of people. So, you know, they do. They set up a round table. So think of these people. They come in, they think they get to listen to the speech. They end up sitting on a round table discussing.

[00:26:45.06]
They must have been happy. Right. We don't have we don't have enough room around tables. I'm sorry. I know they set up a round table, but I think we're doing great. And, you know, how do you beat what we've done with the economy, with our great vets, with choice? You finally got choice. They've been trying to get it for almost 50 years. See these people back here? Your seat or stand is better.

[00:27:24.02]
Right. But you know what? They're going to be much more famous because the cameras can't see you. They can only see them. And you know, the other thing, the cameras you ever notice? I go to these stadiums. Twenty five. Thirty thousand people. They never show the crowd. You know why? Because they don't want to have a crazy Pocahontas. If crazy Pocahontas goes to the middle of Central Park or whatever. She's in Manhattan.

[00:27:55.07]
You got me and people. I mean, I could have I could have Baron Trump go into Central Park and he'd get a crowd. That would be just as. He thought he'd get a bigger crowd. But if she has a crowd hard, is crowds so big? I've had crowds over the last couple of weeks. We went to a different Pennsylvania, Florida. But I mean, thousands and thousands of people can't get into these, you know, NBA arenas, right?

[00:28:28.02]
Big arenas. And we set records that everyone because we use the floor. Thank you. I appreciate that. But we use the floor, right. The basketball court. So we set records at every road. They never even mention the crowds. They never mentioned the crowds. It's sort of amazing. You know what? I don't think we've ever had an empty seat from the time I came down the escalator. That's a long time ago. I don't think we've ever had an empty seat.

[00:29:02.09]
Now, what the crooked media does, though, if you got like over you. Look how packed it is and it's thousands outside. But I please go home. You're going to catch pneumonia. But but here's the thing. If this man had that beautiful woman happened to get up because they want to go to the bathroom, those cameras will turn to those two seats and they'll say Trump was unable to fill up the arena. Know. I always get nervous when I see some.

[00:29:35.00]
I know they're coming back. Nobody ever leaves our speeches because is there a better place to be in the world than a Trump rally? But every time I see, I see a man get up, I see a beautiful woman with a baby in there getting up, the baby's going crazy and they're getting up, they're going to take it. But I know they're going to be right back. And I say, fill those two seats. I don't want them to see it because they'll say, couldn't fill up the arena.

[00:30:03.09]
These are truly dishonest people. After three years of sinister witch hunts, hoaxes, scams. Tonight, the House Democrats are trying to nullify the ballots of tens of millions of patriotic. Capped off with one of the greatest election evenings in history, was that the greatest? Remember when they all said, remember when they all said, don't know, you can't win Michigan. You can't. I know what I did win in Grand Rapids. Right. Grand Rapids.

[00:30:48.02]
We had thirty two thousand people that night. It was one o'clock in the morning. That means it was Election Day when I started speaking. Hillary. Barack Obama, Michelle Obama and Bill Clinton. They did an emergency trip. They did an emergency trip to Michigan at 6 o'clock. They got here at primetime. They started the speech. She had five hundred people. I got here at one o'clock in the morning the next day, which is now Election Day 30.

[00:31:15.06]
How many people were there? Thirty two thousand thirty to. Thirty two thousand people outside. Inside was the last speech in Michigan. And they say, well, sir, it's very hard to win Michigan, is it? Why would it be hard? Here's the beautiful thing. Everything I told you I've done, but much more so I said I was gonna bring car companies back. I said I was going to bring in. I just hope you people know that.

[00:31:42.06]
I just hope you. But I'll never forget that night. And, you know, in all fairness to Bill Clinton, you know, he used to be a friend of mine until I ran for office. I like him. I like him. But he told you, you know, the way they tried to shut him out. Right. Because he's a pro. He's an instinct guy. Right. His instinct. He doesn't need polling companies. Who the hell wants it?

[00:32:07.02]
You know, if you want a polling company, pick up the newspaper. The problem is, the newspaper polls are more fake than the news. They write. They write fake polls show. They write fake polls. You call them suppression polls. You read them and you get the press because it looks like you're doing badly. They do that. I think it's almost worse than what they write. And you can't get much worse than what they write.

[00:32:30.09]
So what happens? So what happens is Bill Clinton said to crooked Hillary is very dishonest. Wife said, crooked Hillary. Do you think he calls her crooked Hillary? My. Maybe he just calls the crooked. He said drink it. I'm telling you, Gregan. I don't like what I've seen in Michigan. I don't like what I'm seeing in Wisconsin, he said. I took a trip to Wisconsin. And I'll tell you what. They had those Trump pen signs all the way to the convention area.

[00:33:06.00]
Every lawn. Every lawn. I don't like Wisconsin. And they said, don't worry about what the hell does he know? They told him. What do you know? Remember, they shut him out at the end. Didn't want him talking. He was right. I mean, I don't want to cause any problems in the family. But he was right. He talked about Wisconsin. He talked about Michigan. He said crooked. I'm telling you, I don't like what I see in Michigan.

[00:33:34.01]
I was in Michigan. And I'm telling you that those damn signs. I saw some houses where they had four of them on one lawn and two of them on the car. And he said, you horrible human being, you've got to start listening to me because you're going to get your ass whipped. And you know what happened? You know what happened? She didn't listen, fortunately. And she didn't come to Michigan enough and she didn't come to Wisconsin.

[00:34:09.09]
I think it all right because her polling data looked good. It looked good to me, too, every time I went there with these crowds. So we won Wisconsin. We won Michigan. And the great Ronna McDaniel. Whereas Ronald. Rana? She was so horrible. I didn't know her. Ronna McDaniel. And she was so aggressive. She kept calling. Say, could you please come out to Michigan? I said, who the hell are you?

[00:34:44.09]
And I said I said, what do you mean, another trip? So anyway, I made we had these big crowds. I made it again. Then finally I said, two weeks out. I said, run, and no more were going to win it. A win. OK. OK. I promise. Two days later, I get a call. Sir, could you please come out to Michigan one more time? Sighs She was the campaign chairman in Michigan.

[00:35:14.00]
So I said, okay. And then I got the ultimate call. Six o'clock in the evening for this final deal in Grand Rapids. Sarah, could you come to Michigan tonight? And I thought I was just about finished. I went to a last great state and I said, it's over. Now I sit back and I watch it. Let's see what happens. Right. But she said, could you come to Michigan? I said, that is the most aggressive human being I've ever.

[00:35:41.02]
And we did it. And we won Michigan. And the word is that we're much higher right now in the polls than we were ever in 2016. You better remember when you walk into November 3rd, this time, November 3rd, by the way, though, that evening, that incredible evening in November. Right. One of the biggest nights in the history of television, you never hear them say it. So I might as well. That election and my debates, you see the debates are dying.

[00:36:20.05]
Who wants to watch booted edge food at Jet? Boudette J&J's you know that you pronounce it, they say, I heard some guys saying, no, no, cause it's an unpronounceable name. That's why they call him Mayor Pete. Mayor Pete. Mayor P, I've had you up to here, Mayor Pete. And judges leading. How does would you say it this way? You say it. They call a mayor, Pete, because nobody could pronounce his last name.

[00:36:52.05]
That's the only you know, people think it's a. By the way, you know what? I'm not going to say bad things about him. You know what? I'd love to win. I thought I knocked off Pocahontas. I did it a year too early. A year too early. I give her credit. She then started to come back. I don't think she's gonna make it, though. She's gasping. She's gasping for air. But I saw them pronouncing Buddha touch and they said, here's what you do.

[00:37:17.08]
Booch edge. Edge say edge. Like the edge of a building. Edge, edge. But at jentsch. Alfred E. Newman. You're going to be older to know what that means. But congressional Democrats are directly attacking 2.3 million Michigan voters who rose up in 2016 won this state. And now the Democrats are very upset. They want to get Michigan back. They just don't know how to do it because they didn't do a thing for Michigan. They didn't do anything for Michigan, you just like all they did was take away your companies and let them go to Mexico and other places.

[00:38:07.07]
You know, I don't have you know, Mexico has 32 percent of your car business, you know that, right? Not because of me. They're not moving. But Mexico has 30 to 32 percent of our car business moved to Mexico. And you believed it before I got there. But that's what I used to talk about. I said what I was honored that night. I said, how do you let this happen? How do you let all these companies leave?

[00:38:31.04]
It used to go. It's probably maybe the single biggest reason I ran for president. It might be the same. And I had a lot of them immigration. I had a lot of them. But that may be the single biggest with today's illegal, unconstitutional and partisan impeachment. The do nothing Democrats and they are do nothing, all they want to do is focus on this, what they could be doing are declaring their deep hatred and disdain for the American voter.

[00:39:04.03]
This lawless partisan impeachment is a political suicide march for the Democrat Party. Have you seen my polls of the last four weeks?

[00:39:17.01]
It's crazy. You know why? Because people you know, we have an election right down the road.

[00:39:25.05]
I announced three months ago that I'm running. Right. I'll give you a little clue. I announce because I figured once they announced they'd never impeach, nobody would be so stupid. But they've been trying to impeach me from day one. They've been trying to impeach me from before I ran. OK. Because if you remember when I ran, I went immediately to number one, never came off. We had center stage from day one and the debates. So we had a no 14/15 debates.

[00:40:00.08]
We had a total of 18, actually. People forgot. There was one date they never talk about. But that's OK. But we had 18 people and I was center stage. And I said, wait a minute, this is no good. I want odd numbers, because if you're center stage, if you have a 10, that means two people are in the middle. So I said make it eleven or make it nine. Or I'm not showing up.

[00:40:23.07]
And generally they did it because we were way ahead from the beginning. But I made a lot of great friends out of that group and many of them are good friends today, although you wouldn't know it based on the they say that was the meanest. That was a pretty mean primary. You got to say, wasn't that fun through there? I like that through their depraved actions today. Crazy. Nancy Pelosi's House Democrats. Have branded themselves with an eternal mark of shame in it.

[00:40:57.02]
It really is, it's a disgrace. Democrat lawmakers do not believe you have the right to select your own president. They think that the Washington swamp, which we believe it or not, it ain't easy because they got so much stacked, including these guys. You know what? These guys are a part of the Democrat Party. They are a part of. You might as well call them Democrats know the media. Look, look, I don't you know, it's hard for somebody to know if you're not the subject is how do you know The New York Times is totally dishonest.

[00:41:33.04]
The Washington Post or ABC is so bad. CBS so bad. NBC, I made a lot of money for NBC with The Apprentice, right? A lot of money I lost. Plus we had the number one show a lot and they had nothing in the top 10 except a thing called The Apprentice. And they treat me so bad. I brilliantly said, well, one group I know will treat me well. NBC, I call it commy cast.

[00:42:00.07]
You know, it's owned by Comcast. They're just as bad as CNN and they're just as bad as MSNBC. And by the way, CNN and MSNBC, their ratings are down the tubes. It's great. I like. I love. But they think the Washington swamp should be able to veto the results of an election. That's what they think. There's never been a time like this. Think of it. You have the greatest economy in the history of the world.

[00:42:36.01]
Other countries come to see me, all of their leaders, and they say, sir, first thing, sir, congratulations on your economy. We're trying to do the same thing. Congratulations, sir. And these guys don't like talking about it. And if they do, they say Obama did it. Obama. Remember, Obama said you will never be president. He will never be president. Then remember, he said, I will consider it a personal affront if you allow him to be president.

[00:43:07.02]
And then I became president. He wasn't so happy. And in all fairness, he campaigned harder than crooked Hillary because he had more strength. I mean, I go to these places, you know, Secret Service. They take the agency to lobby in three years. I go through basements. I pass compactor plants. I know more about compactors from this job. I don't see lobbies. I say, fellows, you think you could ever baby take me through a lobby?

[00:43:35.05]
No, sir. But I'll tell you what. I go upstairs, downstairs, all around. They take me up three flights, go down one. I said, are we almost there? Yes, sir. Another four flights. And I say, you think Hillary could do this? I don't think so. They'd bring her back home. She wants to go to sleep. And now I hear she wants to run again. Wouldn't that be great?

[00:44:04.01]
Thank you. Oh, we love that you think the Democrats are screwed up. Wait till that happens. Wouldn't that be odd as my guy? We'll look based on the FBI report you just saw what happened with the I.G. Where they came out with the FBI. Based on that, you know what? I never stopped you. But now think of what they did. Think of what they did. Think of how dishonest it all was. They shouldn't even be allowed to have an impeachment because it was based on dishonesty.

[00:44:51.06]
It was based on illegality. She went out and they paid for a fake dossier. They gave money to foreigners to write a fake dossier. Totally disproven, totally fake. The FBI then took that fake dossier and they used it in the FISA court to get approval to spy on my campaign. And if we were Democrats, they would have been in jail two years ago. It's a disgrace. Think of what they did. So they use this fake dossier and they brought it before this big deal court.

[00:45:37.04]
It's a big deal. The FISA court and they said this stuff and they lied about it. Kids call me who's another beauty? Did I do a great job when I fired his ass? What a great time. Oh, no, they had bad plans. Now, I did a great thing that was like throwing a rock at a hornet's nest. Did that place explode? And then we learned about Lisa Paige and her wonderful lover, Peter Struck.

[00:46:08.06]
I love you, Lisa. I love you more than anybody in the world. I love you more than anybody in the world causes problems with a wife. But we will talk about those tapes did work well. Now, how about those statements? Right. And then they say, in all fairness, I really like the report. But how does the inspector general say? Because don't forget, he was appointed by Obama. So I'm not knocking him because he gave us a lot of nuggets, but we had a lot of those nuggets.

[00:46:35.00]
How does the inspector general say you have these horrible. He's going to lose, isn't he? He's going to lose or she's going to win. One hundred million. You see, all the zeros was like, I'm like, this is I think it's a hunch he's going to lose 100 to one, isn't he? Peter, I love you so much, Peter. I've never loved anyone like you. He's going to lose 100 million to one, Peter, right?

[00:47:03.00]
That's right. He's going to lose 100 mutawa. But there's no bias. How about the insurance fight? To me, the greatest. Just in case she loses. We have an insurance policy. We're in the insurance policy right now, folks. We've been in it for three years. That's what they meant. I mean, the insurance policy is on an artificial respirator because we're doing awfully well. And I'll tell you something. Rush Limbaugh said it.

[00:47:35.04]
Sean HANNITY said it. Laura Ingram said it. Tucker said it. Ainslee said it when a lot of people have said it. They said there's nobody in the world that couldn't handle that stuff that happened and still created one of the greatest economies and done more than any other president ever before in the first three years. I understand. I understand that, but it's my life very unfair to my family. I have to say this very, very unfair to my family.

[00:48:15.06]
What they put my family through is a disgrace me. It's my life. It's fine. I do. But you know what? What they put my family through is a disgrace. And they ought to be ashamed. And we should get apologies all over the place. So yesterday I sent Pelosi a letter denouncing and condemning her party's outrageous abuse of power. That's what it is. They have nothing. They're the ones that should be impeached. Every one of them.

[00:48:53.03]
I mean, you got this guy, Schiff. He makes up a statement and he goes in front of Congress where he has immunity and he makes up his statement from me. That's totally fictitious, totally out of thin air. The worst statement I've ever heard. Many people saw it. I had a person two weeks ago said, I didn't love this tape. And you made us it really didn't. You read the transcripts that. I also read the transcript.

[00:49:17.08]
But didn't you read it? No, no. I heard it on television. I watched Adam Schiff. He made it up. I then sent him the transcript. He said, oh, now I feel better. That's perfect. I called perfect. He called the perv. Everyone calls it. If you read it. But here's the thing. He makes up this statement and it finished. Didn't he have eight quid pro quos? Eight. Could you imagine you're dealing with a country and you say eight times that you got to do something the first time they say the second time they say that strange.

[00:49:48.01]
Third time they say, what's wrong? You said eight times, eight times they'll have you arrested that have you put into an insane asylum. But he actually said I think he said eight, not seven, eight. And then he finished with don't call me, I'll call you. Can you imagine the president, the United States? Don't call me. I'll call you. You know what that is? That's a mafia statement, OK? That's the head of the mafia saying, don't call me uncle.

[00:50:17.00]
This guy actually said that. And then he walked away and people became incensed because they knew that was it. The people that read the thing, most people believed him because you know who he is is a corrupt politician. Hundred percent. Now he's a corrupt. And then I see him. By the way, you ever see this guy, he walks up to the mikes. I mean, we're not in office. Look, I don't want to be because with me, too, I never even think about looks anymore.

[00:50:43.09]
I don't talk about looks of a male or a female. But in his case, let's just say last time I'll ever refer to this. He's not exactly the best looking guy we've ever seen. Oh, any any. He walks up to the monkey and he's so hot just. This is a sad, sad day for America. Our president is an employee of Russia. I have absolute proof that the president is at the beginning and every week they say, where's the proof?

[00:51:22.07]
It's coming, it's coming. Then we get the Mueller report. Nothing. And I'll tell you what, I know some of the people in this audience, if I spent not 45 million, not 18 Trump haters. OK. And I can the angry Democrats was 13, then went to 18. And then Mueller. Mueller, do a good job. How is his performance in front of Congress? Not the best. But think of this. Forty five million they spent.

[00:51:58.04]
And, you know, I heard somebody say, well, we got back some of that money. You cause this country billions and billions and billions of dollars in all of the things that didn't get done in all of the embarrassment to our country. You caused billions and billions of dollars and it was a hoax. But this guy Schiff, I have absolute proof. I have this. I hope I have that. This. Any car, anytime he sees a camera and he.

[00:52:27.04]
Stonefaced, right. Stonefaced. He's a pathological liar. He gets up and I've never seen anything like it. Even I was saying, I wonder what he has. What does he have? He says, I have absolute. I said, I haven't spoken to Russia in yet. What the hell do I have to do with Russia? But this guy gets up. Oh, I think we have a vote coming in. So we got every single Republican voted for us war.

[00:53:02.04]
Wow, almost 200. So so we had one ninety to twenty nine, one ninety eight. We didn't lose one Republican vote.

[00:53:14.08]
And three Democrats voted for us. Hey, hey. Thank you, Haley. Great job. Wow. The Republican Party has never been so affronted, but they've never been so united as they are, right?

[00:53:38.03]
They have never. And I know the senators and they're great guys and women, too. We have some great women. We have great guys are great people. They love this country. They're going to do the right thing. They're going to do the right. So I said in my letter to Pelosi. I love that. You know, usually there's one to the Republicans, like I've said for a long time, the Democrats are lousy politicians. They really are.

[00:54:05.08]
They've got horrible policies, open borders. Crime is fine. Drugs pouring through. I mean, think of what they do. Sanctuary cities. They love sanctuary cities. They're lousy politicians, but they have one thing, two things. They are vicious. They're the most vicious people. The Republicans aren't as vicious. They may learn to be vicious after going through this. But the other thing, the Democrats always stick together. Now, think of it.

[00:54:33.04]
Three Democrats went over to our side. No Republicans won. It's unheard. And by the way, this for 100 years, I'm not just talking about this little point in time, the Republicans are known as it's always harder to stick together. These people are great. We have a great Republican Party and we have to get that change. We have to take back the House. You'll have the greatest health care ever. If we take a look, by the way, we had another victory.

[00:55:05.09]
The individual mandate just a little while ago came over the wires. It was just upheld. The individual mandate is now gone.

[00:55:15.00]
The most unpopular part of Obama was just upheld. So I said in my letter to Pelosi, by proceeding with your invalid impeachment, you're violating your oath of office. You're breaking your allegiance to the Constitution. You're declaring open war on American democracy. You dared to invoke the founding fathers in pursuit of this election nullification scheme. Yet you're spiteful actions display unfettered contempt for America's founding and your egregious conduct. Listen, though, it's so true. It threatens to destroy what our founders pledged.

[00:55:57.03]
And in fact, their very lives to build. You are the ones interfering in America's elections. You are the one subverting America's democracy. We did nothing wrong. Nothing whatsoever. This is just an excuse. You are the ones instructing justice. You are the ones bringing pain and suffering to our republic for your own selfish, personal, political and partisan gain. They're bringing pain. The work we could be doing on lowering drug prices, on getting rid of these horrible, horrible situations, you know, in the border, the woman is OK.

[00:56:39.00]
OK. OK. Thank you very much. Thank you. I mean, some of these people are waiting here for three days. Thank you. They'll come back. Come back. Thank you. Merry Christmas is true. But what they've done with this perversion, it's perversion. And when you watch some of these people get up and speak today, they don't even. You have violated the Constitution. Well, what has he done wrong? Well, we don't know that.

[00:57:10.05]
They don't even have any crime. This is the first impeachment where there is no crime. I say, tell me what I did, please. Well, we don't know. You violated the Constitution. You had Turley, who's smart. Alan Dershowitz, these guys, all of them. They said there's no crime. There's no crime. Right? There's no crime. I'm the first person I ever get impeached. It is no crime. I like I feel guilty.

[00:57:36.01]
You know, they call it impeachment. Like it's impeachment like. That's why, you know, with Richard Nixon, I just see it as a very dark era. Very dark. Very. Oh. You don't even like to think I don't know about you, but I'm having a good time. It's crazy. But I also know we have a great group of people behind us in the Republican Party. We really do. Maybe I wouldn't feel the same way, but we have a great group of people behind us.

[00:58:04.03]
We had in the house and we have it in the Senate. They're doing a great job. So I'm not worried. I'm not worried because it's always good when you don't do anything wrong, you get a pitch that may be a record that will last forever. But you know what they have done? They've cheapened the impeachment process. And now now anybody that become, you know, this was this is a sacred position. Anybody that becomes president, I mean, they could have a phone call and they get impeached.

[00:58:35.04]
So if the Republicans if you had a Democrat as president, we have a Republican House, they don't like the the guy for whatever reason or the woman they impeach the person, it's cheapened it. It's exactly what our founding fathers didn't want. And they said it could happen. And it's had. But I know one thing Americans will show up by the tens of millions next year to vote Pelosi the hell out of office. But it's so disappointing. I see a woman, Carolyn Maloney.

[00:59:19.03]
She's a long. Nothing much like me. She's a congresswoman from an ad side. I was with her her first race. I helped her. She was always so nice. Oh, thank you. Thank. I've made lots of contributions over the years. You know, in New York. Give you an idea. It's like purely Democrat, especially Manhattan. So what happens? I make lots of contributions. Years and years and years, I go run.

[00:59:44.04]
The first person I see, Carolyn Maloney. I raise my hand to a peach. Well, give me back the day of money that I've been paying for so many years. Let her pay me back all the money. Let her pay me back all the money. Then you have this go digging golf. You know Dingell from Michigan. Don't you ever hear of Michigan? Debbie Dingell, that's a real beauty. So she calls me up like eight months ago.

[01:00:15.01]
Her husband was there a long time, but I didn't give him the B treatment. I didn't give him the C or the D I could have. Nobody would have. You know, I gave the A-plus treatment. Take down the flags. Why are you taking him down for ex Congressman Dingell? Oh, OK. Do this. Do that. Do that. Rotunda. Everything I gave and everything. That's OK. I don't want anything for. I don't need anything for anything.

[01:00:41.04]
She calls me up. It's the nicest thing that's ever happened. Thank you so much. John would be so thrilled. He's looking down. He says, thank you so much, sir. I said that's OK. Don't worry about it. Maybe he's looking up at. But let's assume he's looking down. But I gave him a plus, not A, not B plus, he gave me a plus and she called me. So no, I won't go into the conversation because it's not fair to do that.

[01:01:21.07]
But all I wanna say is let's put it this way. It was the most profuse thank you that you could ever get on a scale of zero to 10. It was a tad. OK, so that was, what, February or something? Now they talk about this phony impeachment. And she's out there while we have to look seriously at our president, because he may have violated the Constitution of the United States. And I can't be happy with that because I love our country.

[01:01:51.04]
I love this and I love that she loves everything. I said she's a no. OK. No, but I look at her and she's so sincere. And what happens? I vote to impeach Trump. And you know what? I didn't say who the hell do this was even going to come up. I went through the whole Mueller hoax. They did this big report. I was totally exonerated. They didn't even bring it up at the impeachment because I was totally exonerated.

[01:02:19.02]
If they show one little kernel, one little quarter of a said. Look what they did with one word. Remember this? What did I do? What did I do? It's it's us. But they don't say it that way. They say I they read a totally different year. Chef and his band of thieves. They read it. Now I say basically very simple. Do us a favor. Our country. To us, to us, not me.

[01:02:49.08]
Our country. And then what do I say? I say the United States attorney general, attorney general of the United States could speak to you would be great. Okay. Because it's known for major corruption. In fact, the new leader of Ukraine got in on a construction on a a platform where he looks for all of the problems of dishonesty and everything that was going on in Ukraine. Right. He looked forward. That's how he got into office.

[01:03:21.05]
He got into office that way. So we take it and they re they repeat it a thousand times and they never say with the right. So I go wild and we start and the Republicans have got to right now, we always correct him. But I used the word us, as is the United States, our country. And then it actually says, I think Karma country. But they don't say that. They say, do me a favor.

[01:03:48.03]
How many times have you heard it where they say it is speech? And then the president said, do me a favor. Well, that's what I said. They should do us a favor. Our country. And then I said, the attorney general of the United States. I didn't say my campaign manager. I said the attorney. And these people want to impeach the president of the United States for. Oh, and then what happened, right?

[01:04:17.09]
Then what happened? So then the president of Ukraine, who's a quality person, said there was no pressure exerted whatsoever. That was a killer for the Democrats. Right. Then his foreign minister said the same thing. He said there was no pressure exerted whatsoever. There was no pressure. That's a killer. So now did you see what the Democrats did a couple of days ago? They tried to say that he's not a strong person, that he was weak.

[01:04:51.08]
They use the word weak, that he was weak and under the power of Trump, he said, what do you know how insulting that is? Anybody that becomes president of a country and that's a big country and it's a tough country, you got to be tough. He's tough. But so what they're saying now is he was weak because the wording is just doesn't fit. These are really dishonest people. And if the press was fair, this thing never would have happened.

[01:05:24.02]
So the House Democrats are surrendering their majority, their dignity, their reputations, they look like a bunch of fools. And I'll tell you, we have a lot of new stars in the Republican Party. I could read off a list of 20 names, but they're giving up their honor and they'll receive a big backlash at the box office. When you take a look at ballot box, that ballot box in November 3rd, I think we're going to have crowds like we've never had.

[01:05:54.01]
And I'll tell you something. It used to be, you know, that also the Republicans, you know, in 2018. In 2018. I didn't run. I didn't run. Right. They all said, oh, well, actually, we picked up two seats in the Senate that these guys never talk about. We just approved one hundred and seventy one Supreme Court justices. Federal court justice. 171 federal justices, including Courts of Appeal 171 will be up probably by the end of the year.

[01:06:29.08]
One hundred and eighty two. And for that, I thank President Obama. He gave me a hundred and forty two opening, you know. He gave me a hundred and forty two, I said to him, Mike, people, I got there because they say the most important thing you could do as a president is judges and Supreme Court. We have two great Supreme Court judges, right? Two justices of the Supreme Court. KAVANAUGH Course, it's two great men.

[01:06:58.09]
Great. And how about the pain that they put Justice Cabinet through? Over a phony deal like the tire, over a phony deal. What a disgrace what they put that man through. And that family through. Just remember it. Come November, you got to remember it's a long time, you know, in the life of Trump. Ten months is an eternity to look. Somebody said, congratulations, sir, you're going to wear it. Don't say that.

[01:07:28.06]
There's still talk about it. Let's always pretend you one point down like last time. Going to be close? Nope. It's to be close. But what they put that man through is horrible. Would they put his family through is horrible. And you know, those stories largely have been recanted. And frankly, the ones that didn't recant. I don't know what a Supreme Court judge does, but he should sue them. He should sue them. So we want to take back the house.

[01:07:59.06]
We'll hold the Senate and we'll keep the White House. You will have the greatest health care. You will continue with the greatest judges. You know, we have judges that are we just had a great story in The Wall Street Journal. I have to tell. I have to be always very truthful because of, um, a little bit off. They call me a liar. They'll say he gets a Pinocchio. The stupid Washington Post, their Pinocchio.

[01:08:24.07]
I mean, even if you like saying things perfectly, it's a puddle. There's nothing you can say where you don't get a Pinocchio. But what happens? What happens is we have Wall Street Journal the other day got the best story. They said, whether you like him or not, the job he's done on judges and Supreme Court justices. But the job he's done on judges, as a matter say, is the most important thing. See, I don't agree with him.

[01:08:51.03]
I say defense is the most the military's about. But once you're beyond the military, I mean, to me, defense is the most important cause without good defense. Maybe we don't need judges so much. Right. It's like somebody said, well, we violated the budget. Is it do me a favor. Don't worry about the budget. If we're attacked and aren't doing very well and somebody says, well, at least we have a good budget that doesn't work too well.

[01:09:15.04]
That doesn't work. So we have great military. We have great judges. We have great everything. Ah, drug prices down for the first time in 51 years. Drug prices came down. And that was with no help from the Democrats. If they help because you need their votes. If they helped, I could get those drug prices down 40 and 50 percent, OK? And we just approved and we're approving very soon for the governor of Florida, Rhonda Santos, where he could buy.

[01:09:46.08]
He has the right to go. We're given the right to go and buy from a foreign country where the prices for the identical drug, identical drug are 50 percent less. And he's going to do that for the people of Florida. And we're going to do that for your governors if they want to do that. We'll get that down. So far, everyone in America can see straight through the Washington Democrats phony, dangerous charade. Schiff makes up so many things.

[01:10:15.02]
Pelosi makes it up and she backs him up. I saw her on a television show and George STEPHANOPOULOS, that's another beauty. He said even he said he was defending me. I could believe it. He made the same bet. But, you know, he lied on that. He made up the stuff. No, he didn't do that. So that means Nancy Pelosi said no, the statement that he made. But it's all going to end soon and it's going to come out to a beautiful, great victory for the Republican Party and for this nation.

[01:11:09.01]
Thank you very much. So that's it. We have the greatest country we've turned around a ship. We need four more years if we don't have it. Now, if you want to drive them crazy, we had one group in Pennsylvania. Some guys started screaming 16 more years, 16. They went crazy. And you know what they don't understand? When I do get out, they're all going to go out of business. Make it more money than they've ever been.

[01:11:45.05]
That crazy New York Times, one of the worst newspapers in one of the most dishonest newspapers in the history of the world. Totally phony. They came out with a story that was where it was a great headline for me and the people that read it. The super radical left. They called and complained so much that they changed the headline and took it from positive to negative. What a good story. Can you believe it? Now they're among the most dishonest people.

[01:12:10.06]
But I'll never forget before I took that great escalator ride down with our first lady. Our First Lady is the great. I said, first lady. You're so lucky I took you on this journey. This wonderful, beautiful journey. And it is you know why it's a wonderful, beautiful journey because look at will accomplish. What we're accomplishing is unbelievable. It's unprecedented. It is unprecedented. What we're accomplished. We're so lucky I said to my people.

[01:12:45.08]
I have great people in the back. I say, you folks are so lucky I took you in this. You could be home right now. Relaxing. But I'd rather be here, frankly, than any place these rallies are great. They're inspiring. You are inspired. And you know, it's funny, we're not even into election season. Know it's a long way away. We're not even in it. And yet I think the enthusiasm right now is greater than it was even before the 2016 election.

[01:13:18.00]
Does that make. I think a lot of it has to do with a witch hunt. A lot of it has to do with a phony witch hunt because you're smart people. You know, you're the elite. They're not the elite. You're the elite. Are the elite. You do better than they do. They talk about I don't you hate it. Well, the elite are really. I went to better schools. Many of you went to better schools.

[01:13:43.01]
We won't talk about homes, even though your homes are nicer. We will talk about jobs. You see the jobs report. You see what's happening. You see where wages are going up. You know, when I first started, when I was here, what are my first speeches? I was talking. The people made more money. That was four years ago. So was 20 years before that. That's 24, 25 years ago. They made more money 24 years ago than they were making when I got elected president.

[01:14:08.09]
And they worked one job versus two or three jobs. Now it's going up beautifully. And we want that the salaries. And, you know, the number one group of people that are going up is the blue collar worker. It's percentage of us, a blue collar worker. They are two in three jobs. The blue collar worker is going up the most anyway. So what I do know what else. The other thing I'm happiest about African American unemployment, the lowest in the history of our country.

[01:14:51.04]
African. Remember, I used to say you remember. Look at you. Are you the greatest guy everyone thinks? Do I pay? I'm telling you, I have a group of African-American guys and gals, by the way, that follow me around. And they think I pay them and I don't. I love them. They love me. They come. How many rallies have you come to? A lot. They're great people, just great. Thank you.

[01:15:29.09]
I don't even know who the hell he is. Is that right? I don't know. But I like him. I see him at so many rallies. I appreciate it. You and your group, they're great people. Thank you. See, you're obviously doing well if you can travel around like that, right? He knows. I appreciate it. I really do. I think it's fantastic. Thank you. Thank you. But think of this.

[01:15:51.05]
African-American unemployment is the lowest it's ever been in the history of our country. Their poverty levels and a horrible poverty level in the negative sense. Now, their poverty levels are the best they've ever been in the history of our country. Same with Hispanic Americans. The best unemployment numbers and employment numbers and the same with Asians, the best unemployment and women. I'm sorry, 71 years. Best in 71 years. I've let the women down, but I think within another couple of months you'll be historicals only 71 years best the best in 71 years.

[01:16:31.09]
But what we're doing has been an incredible thing. It's an incredible thing. And when I'm on the debate stage with one of these characters and they try and say negative stuff, and I'll just say, well, here's a story in the history of our country. This group's doing the best and that group is doing the best and the women are doing the best that everybody's doing. And frankly, you know what it is? The whole country is doing the best.

[01:16:57.06]
Okay. The whole country's. So we have records and everything, and yet they're trying to. And they really are. I've never seen anything like it, they're accusing me really of doing what Joe Biden. Biden admitted what he did. How about this? They protect him. Did you see the. Did you see the crummy debate? Those debates are so boring. They're dying in the ratings. They're dying. They're dying. While it's totally unsupported, what's unsupported?

[01:17:34.08]
He's on tape saying that he's holding back a billion dollars from Ukraine unless you change the prosecutor. WALLACE How about that question? I won't say you answer because you know, I'm not. I actually used to like the guy. He was a nice guy to me, but now I don't like him so much. But that's OK. But he goes, well, it's totally unsubstantiated. And why we beg your mercy that we're asking you even to bring up this question.

[01:18:00.05]
But President Trump said you refused to give a billion dollars of taxpayer money. To Ukraine, unless they get the prosecutor to stop looking at your son and your son's company. And sleepy job gives a sleepy answer. And that's the end of it. That's it. And then whenever I bring it up, do you ever notice they always use while these charges are totally unsubstantiated. He's on tape. He's if that were me. It's the electric chair. They would bring the electric chair back.

[01:18:42.07]
Now, the guys on tape and they always say it's unsubstantiated. It is not supported by fact, one of them the other day. They finally change the word. It is not supported by fact. No, it's supported by tape. Now it's unbelievable. In many ways, I'd like to have him. When? Because no one is going to have to eventually answer that question and no issue. She said he doesn't know where he is. That's the other part.

[01:19:09.04]
Now, I've been doing for a long time and I have much bigger crowds that anybody's ever had in history, by the way. You know what I say? It gets the fake news because you know what they're going to say. Every stadium is packed. I give my people one instruction. Get the largest stadium. Meet you get. Now, that's why I was a little surprised. But in Battle Creek, you don't have that many. Not too many.

[01:19:31.07]
But I wanted to be here. You know why I wanted to be here. First of all, the crowd is incredible, the crowd outside. But let me tell you now, you know why I wanted to be here? Because we had we have a lot of choices. But I want to be here because this area supported me so overwhelmingly. And I said I want to be pretty simple. Pretty simple. I wanted to be here for that reason, and I just want to say thank you, because I'll tell you what.

[01:20:04.04]
You came in. I don't know. I didn't get 100 present, but we got a damn good percentage, right? We've got a damn good percentage. So this is it's really thrilling to be here. And we're joined tonight by many terrific Republican leaders. Your Michigan House Speaker, Lee Chatfield, Wesley Lee. Come up if you want. Come on. What the hell? We have nothing else to do. So we get him up? Yes.

[01:20:29.04]
Come up, Lee. Come on, Lee. Get up here. Come on up, Lee. Republican Party Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, who I spoke.

[01:20:43.08]
And the bottom line at the end of her story. So when I won, I said, who's going to head up the RNC? I said, I got to get that woman from Michigan. Remember, they will say, you can't win Michigan. Now we're going to win it by so much. You better remember all those. Every time a car plant opens, please think about Trump. Come on up here, Lee. Basic in GOP chairwoman Laura Cox.

[01:21:11.04]
Hate to tell you, but all your congressmen are you know where they are right now, you're congressmen. All of your Congress people been wonderful people. They're in a place called Congress right now. They're doing an unbelievable job of supporting your president and supporting you. So they had a choice, sir. Should we leave and be there? I said don't leave. Stay right where you are. That's why we got that vote. That's a vote. Bradley the chairman of the woman's workers and Workers for Trump and a proud union autoworker, Terry Bowman, who's been so terrific.

[01:21:50.07]
Thank you.

[01:21:52.07]
Come on up. And while Democrats are obsessed with impeachment, we're focused on jobs, jobs, jobs. This group, local leaders and all your Washington folks, they're right where they have to be in Washington tonight. Thank you. Great job. Thank you very much. We've eliminated more job killing regulations than any administration in the history of our country, whether it's four years or eight years or in one case much more than eight years in a period of two and a half years.

[01:22:37.08]
We have eliminated more regulations than any other president by far. You're saving almost three thousand dollars a year because of regulation cuts, total income gains for median households will reach ten thousand dollars a family. I'll give you a couple of quick numbers. So under President Bush for eight years, you say $450, meaning you took in 450 bucks, OK. Right under President Obama, you took in nine hundred and seventy five dollars under President Trump, including the energy savings and the regulation savings and the tax cut savings.

[01:23:26.05]
It's more than ten thousand dollars in less than three.

[01:23:31.01]
Pretty good. So four to eight years you had a 400, 450 and a nine seventy five. That's eight years for. In less than three years you had more than $10000. It goes right into your pockets. It's one of the reasons our economy is doing well because the as they say, the consumer is doing better than they've ever done. And that's great. That's where we want it. We've ended the war in American energy, and the United States is now the number one producer of oil and natural gas or platinum.

[01:24:06.08]
And these maniacs want to close it off. How about going to Texas? You know, Bato, what? Remember when he said. I said, Oh, this guy's a loser, you know, a salesman. Like, if you're a great salesman, you never talk to your great sales. You don't walk and say, well, I'm a great salesman. So any guy that does that, they're no good. Those quiet type that get you.

[01:24:27.05]
You know, the ones that don't talk. So Bita, when he first got in. Remember this clown? He gets in. No, no, he gets in. I was made for this job to run for president. After about two weeks, they killed him. He was gone. But you remember he was against the Bible. He was against religion. He was against guns. And he was against oil and gas. And he comes from Texas.

[01:24:51.05]
I said, that's a platform. Think of it. He's against religion. He's against guns and against oil. Gas. Think of it. I don't like to bring it up because he's gonzo, but he comes from Texas. I said Abraham Lincoln can't win in Texas with that platform, but they are all of them. They wanted to close up your energy to a big deal. They want to close up your steel mills. They don't want you steel mills.

[01:25:15.02]
Look at what I've done for steel. I mean, the steel is back. We taxed all of the dumped steel coming in from China and other places. And U.S. steel mills are doing great. They're expanding all over the country. And they're we're going to be out of business within two years. The way they were going, they were gone. United States Steel is spending now billions of dollars on expansions. Every major Democrat running for president has pledged to eliminate gas powered automobiles and destroy the U.S.

[01:25:43.03]
auto industry. And you know why? Because they have these maniacs that say you got to go all electric. I want to have an alternative, a big alternative. And you don't always have the alternative. And a lot of people don't know of the electric can ever catch the gas, you know? And by the way, there'll be different forms of energy coming along, but they want to close them up and we're not closing them up. We're going to have lots of alternatives so that you can have it from a pricing.

[01:26:11.09]
You can have it for a lot of different reasons. We're even bringing back the old light bulb. You heard about that bright yellow light bulb, which is better. I say, why do I always look so orange? You know why? Because of the new light, the terrible. You look terrible. They cost you many, many times more like four or five times more. And, you know, they're considered hazardous waste. When a light bulb is out, you've got to bring it to a dump.

[01:26:43.08]
So let's say over here. Battle Creek, where's your nearest dump? OK. That's what a couple of hundred miles away, so every time you lose, drive a couple of hundred miles, right. I said, how many people do that? Nobody. What are they? Do they throw it in the garbage? But you know what it is because it's all gas. It's much more expensive. Four or five times where I came into office, I did a lot of this.

[01:27:04.06]
Sinks, showers, all of the stuff. I did a lot of it. The water comes out. You have areas where there's so much water, you don't know what to do with it. You turn on the shower, you're not allowed to have any water anymore. I mean, we do a lot of it. Dishwashers. Did the dishwasher. Right. You press it. Remember the dishwasher? You'd press it. Boom. There'd be like an explosion.

[01:27:24.06]
Five minutes later, you open it up. The steam pours out the dishes. Now you press it 12 times. Women tell me again. You know, they give you four drops of water and there are places where there's so much water, they don't know what to do with it. So we just came out with a rag on dishwashers. We're going back to you. By the way, by the time they press it 10 times, you spend more on water and electric.

[01:27:48.00]
Don't forget, the whole thing is worse because you're spending all that money electric. So we're bringing back standards that are great and better machinery. But you can't have the water. But with the light bulb, I said, what's going on with a light bulb? There's still a lot of people are complaining about the cost. So I had a couple of experts come in. I said, tell me what gives a better light? Well, we like the old light bulb better.

[01:28:14.02]
I said I like it better. And so what I did is you can have either one if you want to buy the newer kind. You can. And if you want to look very handsome or beautiful by buying the older kind like I do. So we're bringing back the old bulb. So it's a much less expensive. It probably gives a better light. But whatever it is. And you'll be able to spend a lot less money for a light bulb.

[01:28:42.03]
It means sounds like little, but it's big stuff. OK. It's fixed and we're doing it with a lot of other things, our dishwashers. And, you know, I won't tell you one of the things, because every time I tell you, they do a big number on it, you know, with the one I'm talking about. Right. Sinks. Right. Showers and what goes with a sink and a shower 10 times. Right. 10 to bar, but not me, of course not me, but you.

[01:29:12.03]
Him. But I never mentioned that because one time I mentioned all three, I said sinks, showers and toilets. The headline was Trump with the toilets. Toilets. That's all there were. They don't even mention that. So I didn't mention that. OK, I go off the record. But you know what? It's terrible. You want to wash your hands, you turn on the sink, the water comes out. So you leave the water go 10 times as long.

[01:29:38.01]
It's the same thing. You have a shower drip. It's no good for me. For me, you know, the one thing that came out really good about being in this business, I used to they always used to say, we're a hairpiece, OK? I know people were hippies, but they always used to say. They don't say that anymore because I have been through the worst storms. If you wear one of those suckers, you gotta give it up fast, cause within two weeks they got you.

[01:30:04.09]
You look handsome. No worry about it. But in the last two decades before my election, we lost one in five auto manufacturing jobs in this country. The people are trying to impeach us for doing all of the things that they've wanted to do for so many years. And that's why it doesn't work. We look so forward to take, you know, no one. And it is all about cleaning the swamp, draining the swamp. And we have a very, very big, bad, dangerous swamp.

[01:30:36.03]
OK, that's enough of that. That's enough. So among the very first acts that I did was to stop the deal that would have dealt a death blow to the U.S. auto industry. I withdrew from the horrible Trans-Pacific Partnership that would have ended your auto industry. A lot of people don't know that, but I do that trans remember TPP. We were basically ceding our auto industry to these countries that were just going to rip us off with the people that made these trade deals.

[01:31:11.09]
It's like where do they come? Like the one in Korea that was a Hillary Clinton special. She said this will produce 250000 new jobs. And I said, well, what happened? He said, well, she was right. Except it was for South Korea, not for us. It produced 250000 jobs for South Korea. These deals were so bad, but now they are getting really good and some of them are getting like great. And over a period of time, they're going to be phenomenal.

[01:31:39.09]
Where do you see the numbers that start coming out of this country over a short period of time? The new but we have to go through a little pain because we have to do it. And then they all say we're going to withdraw. And then I say, you can withdraw. I don't care. We're putting tariffs on your country. Then they say, we'd love to make a deal, sir. The new U.S. embassy has powerful protections to keep auto manufacturing jobs right here in Michigan, where they belong.

[01:32:04.01]
Since the election, we've created 41000 brand new motor vehicle and parts jobs, manufacturing jobs. Remember the statement by President Obama? You'd have to wave a magic wand. Remember the magic wand? Because manufacturing. And I said, you know, that sounds strange. What do you do if you don't have manufacturing? How do you make things right? Manufacturing jobs won't happen. Well, we've got 600000 manufacturing jobs and you're going to see a big, big increase.

[01:32:38.02]
The truth is we need more people. You know what? We need more people. We need more people coming into the country and they're going to come in and they're going to come in through merit.

[01:32:49.07]
And they're going to love our country and they're going to respect our country and they're going to work. We do need more people. They're opening these massive Foxconn in Wisconsin. They're opening these massive plants. And it's hard to get people. We want people coming in, but they have to come in only they have to come in through merit. Fiat Chrysler recently announced a 4.5 billion dollar investment in Michigan, including the first new auto plant in Detroit in more than a generation.

[01:33:25.04]
And General Motors recently announced a 300 million dollar investment at its Orian assembly plant right here in Michigan. Come on, General Motors, that's about. General Motors gave us a little hard time with one building, wasn't happy about that, was the only building I had a problem with in the whole car industry. Right. Right. You know, the one I'm talking about. I didn't like that anyway. But they're spending money, you know? Or can I tell you.

[01:33:55.02]
But these companies are coming in. A lot of the foreign companies are coming because I have to say, you have to. Well, we're not trading with you anymore because we had such big deficits with these these countries, with Japan. We had a 68 billion dollar deficit. I said, Shinzo, he's great prime minister of Japan. But he said. But nobody has ever asked us to do as I said. I'm asking you. And they're building many, many plants.

[01:34:19.02]
They're building many plants now in the United States, the Japanese. After years of rebuilding foreign nations, we are finally rebuilding our nation, is that okay?

[01:34:37.09]
We were surrounded with globalists. You know, they think it's OK to open a plant in some country that you never heard of. They make your product, they send it. In the meantime, they close all their factories here. We're not doing that anymore. Those are globalists. They think it's wonderful to have deficits. I don't they think it's great. It's a great thing to have deficits. No. Those are globalists. The globalists are passé. Well, Norway's you have Democrat politicians more thoroughly betrayed the American people than immigration.

[01:35:07.07]
Every Democrat running for president wants to open the floodgates to unlimited refugees from all around the world, overwhelming your communities and putting our national security at grave risk. My administration has taken bold action to reduce the influx of refugees, and we are making sure local communities like yours have a much greater say about who gets admitted into your own neighborhoods.

[01:35:42.01]
Some of these stories are so sad, some of the stories associated when it comes to setting immigration policy. We always remember this sacred truth, our first duty and our one true allegiance is to you, the American people before anybody else.

[01:36:02.00]
We must care for our own citizens first. Democrat immigration policies are resulting in brutal assaults and wicked murders against innocent Americans. I don't know if we even know what's happening. It's terrible. And we've moved out thousands and thousands of MS 13 thugs out of our country. And we have agreements now with Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador. You know that it used to take him back if we had a murder and we should get him the hell out. You know, we don't really want him in our prisons and take care of him for 50, 60 years.

[01:36:40.01]
We want to bring him back. They wouldn't take him. The planes used to go around and around. Don't land. Don't land with us. They land. We worked out deals with every one of them. We stopped giving them all the aid. You know, we give them all this money. And then they said, we're not going to let you land. We're not going to let you take them back. I said, that's OK. 500000000, we were given them.

[01:37:00.08]
I said, now we give them five dollars. We give them nothing. All of a sudden they said we would love to have them back. We would love it. It's wonderful to have them back in June to illegal aliens in Sandusky, Michigan, were convicted of sadistically beating and stabbing a woman to death with a kitchen knife. Then they hid her body in a water, drained a criminal. Ayling with two previous deportations, was just arrested in Michigan and convicted of brutally beating and strangling to death a single mother of five young children.

[01:37:36.08]
It's happening all that far left. Politicians support deadly sanctuary cities which deliberately release dangerous, violent criminal aliens out of the jails and directly onto your streets. You know, we had a great election in North Carolina recently. Two great congressmen got elected. You don't hear about when they win. You don't ever hear about it just a few months ago to great people. And they got elected and they got elected because I wanted the NSA. You don't talk about the fact that you have sanctuary cities and they had some horrible crimes happening from those sanctuary cities.

[01:38:09.01]
So does I mentioned that bomb. They went up like rocket ships and they won their elections. And it was great, great thing. These sanctuary cities are a disaster. And let me tell you, the people of California that don't like sanctuary cities, either, they're stuck with them because they have crazy politicians. Earlier this year, authorities in the sanctuary jurisdiction of Kent County, Michigan.

[01:38:33.04]
Anybody in Kent County released an illegal alien charged with assault with intent to murder after he repeatedly and viciously stabbed a man in the head with a broken bottle. They let him go to roam free in Michigan communities. If you want to end sanctuary cities in Michigan, if you want to protect your families from criminal aliens, if you want to have a safe life, frankly, it's so crazy what they're doing. You wouldn't even believe it. You have only one choice of 2020.

[01:39:09.01]
You must vote Republican. I'm surprised you, as you know, you do have sanctuary cities in Michigan, I was almost surprised to hear. But you have them. It's one of those progressive things. They think they're doing a wonderful favor for the world. And now we're getting these prosecutors that, you know, you murder somebody, they give you two months, they fight, that you don't even have to go to jail. What's going on is crazy.

[01:39:49.05]
Thanks to our tireless efforts to secure the border, illegal crossings are down 75 percent since May. And we've ended catch and release. We've ended it. We could have ended it so easily. It's called a loophole. You catch him and then you release him into our country. That's what you had to do by law. And if you don't do that, they arrest the Border Patrol people. You believe there's the Border Patrol people were in more danger than the criminal aliens coming in.

[01:40:16.04]
And some of these people are not good people. Of remember the caravans coming up? We call them caravans and they're interviewing the people. I'll never forget it. One nice citizen reporter, female reporter. And what did you do? Well, I want to come to America. OK, good. What did you do? Murder. Why? This was a live television. They didn't play that clip too long. You know, one of the one of the beauties back there.

[01:40:44.02]
What did you do? Murder. Hi. These are the people. Because, look, when you have a caravan of eight or ten thousand people, a lot of those people. Do you think that Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador. Do you think they're sending us their finest? I don't think so. Right. How about the lottery? That was a humor deal. You know, Chuck Schumer crying, Chuck crying and Chuck Schumer and I used to be a big contributor.

[01:41:10.02]
He used to kiss my ass. Chuck Schumer. He'd do anything. He would have done anything for me. I didn't think I asked to get Schumer on the phone. You do this. You do that. You get him on the phone at the beach. He would he would have done I didn't need anything, but he would have done anything. Now, it's like the president has not acted. Give me a break. Give me a break.

[01:41:32.04]
Find out how much money did I give a raise to Chuck Schumer and just give all that money back. Please. Carolyn Maloney, give that money back. Every penny should come back. They act so pompous, they act so righteous and not righteous and add righteous. They're bad people. The far left Democrats have never been more extreme than they are now. Democrats are pushing a socialist takeover of health care that will take away your coverage and take away your doctor.

[01:42:08.07]
One hundred and eighty million people are going to lose. A lot of people here now have health care finally under us. That's phenomenal. And that's what you want. They want to take it. One hundred and eighty. They want you to go to a hospital ward someplace and sit there all night. I don't think so. Not in this group. And you know what? Some people it's good. Some people. But can you imagine, they want to take away 180 million people, great private, highly negotiated health care.

[01:42:35.04]
We have your own doctor. Remember Obama? Twenty eight time times. Twenty eight times. You can have your doctor. You can have your plan. Didn't work out that way, did it? I think we should impeach him for that. Let's impeach him. For that for the IRS scandal, for the guns, remember the guns he was giving them to anybody that wanted him. He gave guns that are worst people in the world and then they didn't have a registered right.

[01:43:07.05]
That's too good. Impeach him. Why didn't the Republicans impeach him? Those were really. How about giving Iran one point eight billion in cash about. By the way, I ended the Iran nuclear deal, I hope you have a much different country, but how about giving Iran 1.8 billion dollars in cash? Many big planes going over to Iran loaded up to the ceiling with cash, you know, at one point a billion. You ever see like at a casino, a million dollars wrapped up?

[01:43:41.08]
Its a big pile of stuff. That's a million. Now multiply it one point eight billion dollars in cash she gave. So why was he allowed to do that? Did anybody trying to pitch him for that? Everybody knew it was wrong. Republicans will strongly protect patients with preexisting conditions and we will protect your pre existing physicians. Virtually every top Democrat also now supports late term abortion, ripping babies straight from the mother's womb. Right up until the moment of birth.

[01:44:16.08]
Right. That is why I've asked Congress to prohibit extreme late term abortion, because Republicans believe that every child is a sacred gift of God.

[01:44:30.07]
Democrats are now the party of high taxes, high crime, open borders, late term abortion, socialism and blatant corruption. And that's what it is. The Republican Party is the party of the American worker, the American family and the American dream. And that's really what it is for. We're also the party of the great Abraham Lincoln, a lot of people forget that, but we have to bring it to protect the health and safety of our citizens. We awarded one hundred million dollars to improve water infrastructure in Flint.

[01:45:09.00]
How badly was Flint? Who was it? Who were the geniuses that did that to you? You have clean water coming into Flint. They had to pay a very tiny little fee. So instead they go into this horrible, horrible, really polluted water and the water comes out of there. They spend hundreds of millions of dollars to save like a couple of bucks. And the water was so terrible. And it hurt the people. It hurt the people.

[01:45:34.00]
But we're getting it fixed. And I know your previous governor was a Republican, but I was not a big fan of his. I was not. But I'm not a big fan of the one that can't fix the potholes. We're committed to ensuring America as the cleanest there in the cleanest water on planet Earth. And that's what it's about. It's about clean air and it's about clean, beautiful water. And it's about keeping our industry, not closing it because of the ridiculous parrot Paris Climate Accord.

[01:46:07.03]
How's Paris doing? I don't think too well. How's Paris doing with the yellow vests? The yellow vests? You know why? Because they raise gasoline prices so they could send the money all over the world to countries that the people in France never heard of at the doors, not working out too well. We're lowering prices were lowering taxes. We're making it possible. I mean, look at look at gas prices. Look at gas prices. I recognize Israel's true capital.

[01:46:35.09]
It open the American embassy in Jerusalem. And we also recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights and begin. For years you watched as your politicians apologized. Remember, I would like to apologize. I would like to apologize. We don't apologize. Now you have a president who is standing up for America. And we are standing up for the great people of Michigan. You're getting your auto industry back.

[01:47:12.08]
At stake in our present battle is the survival of the American nation. If you want your children to grow up a land of safety, it's really we want a land of safety, justice. A lot I know when I look at those f FBI reports we got out, we got to clean up a lot. What they've done to hurt people, what they've done to hurt with Komi and these horrible people, what they've done, dirt people. I think one of the best things I did as president, a lot of people would say, you know, with all what we've done for the economy.

[01:47:50.06]
But one of the best things is firing James Comey's ass at a.

[01:48:00.06]
Reuters reports. Did you see the other day? Well, first time now, he said. Otherwise, he's 50 present there, folks. He's hit the Golden Pond anyway. So what we're doing is we're doing things that are going to make our victory. And, you know, it's like a tree. We need that extra four years. We've done so much. Even right to try. You know, right to try. People were traveling the terminally ill.

[01:48:27.07]
They're travelling all over the world. We have the best medical in the world, the best doctors, the best labs, best hospital. They're traveling all over the world. Right, to try and get because it takes years to get something approved. And I said, wait a minute, folks, why are we doing this? And they've been trying to do it for forty nine years. They couldn't get it done. Not that easy. The drug companies didn't want the liability.

[01:48:47.07]
The country didn't want the liability. The insurance companies didn't want the labor. I said, here's what we do. We'll sign an agreement with the people where you're a sculpt from all liability. Ha. That's a good idea. And it's a very strong agreement. So we can't get there. But I said, listen, you know, they were worried they're going to hurt people is that these people are terminally ill. They're terminally ill. And so we do it now nine months ago.

[01:49:12.09]
All the legislature at the forty nine years. So if somebody's sick, they don't have to go to Asia. There have to go to Europe. Or if you're poor, you go home and you die. Now, what happens? Very simple. You sign that document. They work it out. You wouldn't believe how many lives are being saved to. Too credible. I'm very proud of it, right to try. I hope you don't need it.

[01:49:38.00]
You don't want it. You don't want it. OK. But if you do, it's there. With your help, we will lift millions of more of our citizens from welfare to work, dependence to independence and poverty to prosperity. Together, we will elect a Republican Congress to create a fair, safe, sane and lawful system of immigration. We will enact the greatest trade deals ever made. They'll result in more products proudly stamped with that beautiful phrase made in the USA.

[01:50:18.02]
We will achieve new breakthroughs in science and medicine. What we're doing is unbelievable. We're so far ahead of everybody. What we've done in the last three years with the FDA and even the speed of of what we're doing, it would take 12, 13, 14 years to get things approved. It's down to a much smaller number, but we're finding new cures for childhood cancer and we are ending the AIDS epidemic in America. We've started the process. Who would have thought that in 10 years, it's a 10 year process.

[01:50:56.03]
We will have ended the AIDS epidemic in America. And it could have even started before I came to office or was just wasted time. We will defend privacy, free speech, free assembly, religious liberty and the right to keep and bear arms. 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.

[01:51:41.04]
We stand with the incredible heroes of law enforcement. Their incredible. And that includes ice. Do you know how tough these people are? These are great patriots. They love our country. Even the sheriffs alone, for some of the people that they're dealing with, these guys walk into, they call column a nest and in some cases they just swing it. They can have it. They love it. These are great. If we didn't have them and I told you before, they'd take it out.

[01:52:13.07]
Bad, bad, bad people by the thousands, especially MS. 13 gang members. Who's going to do that? Who is going to do that? Anybody in the front right now? What about you? You're a tough guy. You might do it. You could do it. You might. You could. Would you like we're going to recruit you. I think you could handle yourself. Now, these are tough people, right? You got to be tough.

[01:52:39.04]
Then they get accused. They're too tough or they're too tough. You have some of these guys, they knife people. They don't even need a gun because it's more painful. They knife the two young girls, 16 years old, beautiful. They cut them up into pieces because it was more painful than shooting them. These are animals. And then Nancy Pelosi said, I shouldn't use the term animal. And by the way, she ought to go home and take care of her district where the homeless is all over the place.

[01:53:06.03]
And the tents and the filth and the garbage is eroding right into the Pacific Ocean and into their beaches. She ought to go and take care of her district instead. Did you see what's going on? And it rains and it's filth and it's needles and it's drugs. And it's you know what? It's everything. And it goes right into those storm sores. Storm, not sanitary storm. And it goes right out into the Pacific Ocean, into the beaches.

[01:53:38.01]
And we find San Francisco and Los Angeles and San Francisco. But we've just said them a tremendous dollar fine for what they're doing. And Nancy Pelosi is playing games. She had to go home and take care of the homeless and take care of the filth that every San Francisco was the most beautiful city. When you look at what's happened with the tents all over the place where the police officers are getting sick just from walking the beat, they're getting sick.

[01:54:07.07]
Diseases are coming back that this world hasn't seen for 30, 40, 50 years. It's a disgrace. She had a get back and take care of her district. Instead of wasting time on this nonsense. We believe in the dignity of work and the sanctity of life. We believe that faith and family, not government bureaucracy, are the true American way. We believe that children should be taught to love our country, honor our history and to always respect our great American flag.

[01:54:50.05]
And we live by the words of our national motto and it's always going to be up there. You know, they want to take everything down. They don't want Thomas Jefferson anymore. They don't want anything. That's a terrible thing. And we fight for it now. We fight. These words will never be taken off. I don't care where I am, if I'm up there, if I'm down here, I don't know, but we'll be fine.

[01:55:17.08]
We'll never take these words off. In God we trust. We stand on the shoulders of generations of Michigan patriots who gave their blood, sweat and tears for this beloved nation. This is the state where Henry Ford invented the assembly line. It's the place where General Motors, Chrysler and Kellogg transformed the nation.

[01:55:49.01]
It gave us Motown, the Mustang and the might of the American Midwest. This is the American Midwest. And Michigan is a state where generations of strong, tough and proud American workers made this into the greatest and most powerful nation in the history of the world. And we are making it bigger, better and stronger than ever before. By far. Loyal citizens like you helped build this country. And together we are taking back our country. We are returning power to you, the American people.

[01:56:33.09]
The Democrats took the people of Michigan for granted. But with us, you will never be for garden again. The forgotten men and women of this country will never, ever be forgotten again. And I'm fighting for you and I love doing it with everything that I have. And I will never, ever stop. And you know that I will say I could have a much easier life. Some people say, why is he doing it? You know why I'm doing it, because we're doing the thing.

[01:57:14.05]
And look, what we're doing is we're bringing back our country again.

[01:57:18.06]
Well respected and well respected. We are so respected. You don't even know how respected. You know, I went to NATO where we were being ripped off because the other countries, you have 29 countries and the other countries weren't paying their bills. They were delinquent, you know, in real estate. I noticed people are using that word. I've been using it for the last year. It's like a real estate. And that's when they don't pay their rent, right?

[01:57:42.02]
Well, they weren't paying. And you have to see this chart until I got there. They got to pay. And they said, well, does that mean you won't protect us? I said, you don't want the answer to that question over the last. And the Secretary-General Stoltenberg over the last period of just two years, I raised. Not from us. Nothing from us. A hundred and thirty billion dollars. But that's nothing. And over a short period of time, they will be paying five hundred and thirty billion dollars more.

[01:58:17.04]
All of those. My biggest fan in the world is Secretary General Stoltenberg of NATO. He says, I never thought this could top down. If you look, it's like 15 years just down. President Obama would go down, make a speech. I like to thank everybody for being here. Thanks a lot. Great job. Sayonara by Bush. They all did. Nobody ever asked for money. We were spending for 100 percent of NATO. We're protecting Europe.

[01:58:44.05]
They rip us off on trade, right? They rip us off like crazy. We lose hundreds of billions of dollars on trade. We're changing that. But it's a long time. You know, it's been going on a long time. They don't take your product. They don't take your cars. They don't take your farm product. They don't take your medical machines. We do a big business. They sell us. We don't sell them because they put restrictions.

[01:59:04.09]
We have better equipment than them. But they make it so that our equipment doesn't qualify. You know, it's called artificial barriers or non-monetary barriers. It's brutal. What they do. I'm telling you, they're as bad as China. Just smaller. They are as bad as China. Just smaller. And now China's doing great. We're very happy. But we have to do something with it. We have to take care of our people. We can't be ripped off by these countries.

[01:59:32.03]
So NATO is ripping us off militarily. But now they're starting to pay big money. And that's good. We want to help them. We want to be there with them. But they have to pay. They have to pay.

[01:59:44.01]
Five hundred and thirty billion dollars. And the fake news as they won't even talk about it. They don't want to talk about it. They talk about other things, they don't want to talk about that when you'd get a chance, you know, it's a couple of weeks, maybe you could say over a short period of time. NATO countries will be paying five hundred and thirty billion dollars. More, more. Not total more. How is that good?

[02:00:09.01]
That's not too bad. Nobody else could do that. I guarantee you. I won't tell you what took place in those closed door meetings. Some of them don't like me. You know, they like Obama. Germany likes Obama. Lot of these countries, France, who like Obama. It's embarrassing France. France. President Obama is more popular than president. Well, I should be. I just tax their wine and champagne coming into our country because they're ripping us off on the Internet.

[02:00:41.07]
OK. If I ever become more popular, that means I'm not doing my job, you should say he's out. I could be loved in Germany. I could be loved in Germany. Oh, dad loved me. My father came from Germany. Parents and I could be loved in Germany. They'd like me so much. But then I'm not doing my job for you. Have to do have to do it with your help, your devotion, your drive.

[02:01:13.06]
We're going to keep on working. We're going to keep on fighting.

[02:01:16.05]
We are going to keep on winning, winning, winning, because we are one move, one people, one family and one glorious nation under God. America is thriving like never before. And ladies and gentlemen of Michigan, the best is yet to come. Great state, great state. You know, you better remember all those jobs in a year from now. They say that state let me down. I don't think that's going to happen. I'm here and very good.

[02:02:02.00]
You know, the interesting thing, before it was like a promise. I said, I'm going to bring car back. I'm gonna bring this. I'm going to be. It was all like, you know, it's good. You believe me, I was successful all this. But now we've done it. We have done more than I promised. No politics, I promise. We've done more than we promised. No politician, I think, has ever done that.

[02:02:22.04]
Together, we will make America wealthy again. We will make America strong again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And we will make America great again. Thank you. Thank you, Michigan. Thank you. Good evening, everybody, again. Thank you so much for watching Fox News now pillar areas, I've been here with you through it all.
