There is something going on you feel it right you feel the spirit. You know the other. Night. A speech i made on saturday, night in a very good place. And we had a great evening, and, the ratings, came out you saw that. On television. It was the number. One. Show. In fox, history. For a saturday, night. Ratings. For them it's all about the ratings.

Fox news that's pretty good. Saturday, night, let us also, show our appreciation. To my good friend charlie i'll tell you charlie is some. Piece. Who is mobilizing. A new generation. Of pro-american. Student, activists, that's what you are and really smart. And you'll be up here someday, somebody, in that audience, maybe a few of you you're going to be up here right here. Who are tough and smart, and determined. And truly unstoppable. You are. I want to thank also, kimberly, and i want to thank my son boy i watched my son, i got here. Wow, i said what's this all about. He's good. And people like him people like him a lot. To everyone here today. And watching, live all across, our country, thank you for. Bravely. Defending, our nation, our values, and our great. American. Heroes. You know what's going on because you're on the front lines, of a. Tremendous. Intellectual. Struggle. For the future of our country. That's really what you're talking about the future of our country you see what's happening. It's a disgrace. It's a disgrace. If we weren't here you could forget it okay, but we're going to be here and then you're going to be here we're going to keep it going for a long time. November, 3rd is a big day get out get the parents, get the friends, get the husband, get the wife get everybody. Now the difference, is they get everybody, even if they're not registered. If they're not, citizens. If they're here illegally. They get everybody. That's one of the little difficulties. And. You know you go through a whole nation, and you see what's going on and they report. Zero, illegality. Check out california. Sometime. Check out now check out the. The. Deal that they signed, with judicial, ones. It was i think judicial, watch was. Uh like 1 million or 1.5. Million, people they settled they agreed that that many people. Either voted, illegally, shouldn't have been voting. A lot of things they settled. And judicial, once said look we were so high what difference did it make. What difference did it make no, they play a very dirty game you're fighting against. An oppressive, left-wing, ideology. That is driven by hate and seeks to purge. All dissent, and you understand, that amazing at that age. Your young people generally a couple of ulsters, out there friends of mine. The radical, left. Demands, absolute, conformity. From every professor. Researcher. Reporter. Journalist, corporation. Entertainer. Politician. Campus, speaker. And private citizen, but we have charlie. And we have our people. And our people are stronger. Our people are stronger. And our people are smarter. And we are the elite. We are there, you know do you ever notice. They said it two weeks ago i was talking to somebody says well you know the elite, i said what are you talking about the elite who's the only they're the elite, they're not the elite, you're the elite, you are. You're smarter. You're better looking. You have a better future. You know your way around you're better believe it or not. There's only one thing they have. They're more vicious, they are vicious.
They Are vicious, people. Anyone, who dissents. From their. Orthodoxy. Must be. Punished. Cancelled, or banished, that includes from television, you see it. But you will not be silenced. And you know the bottom line i get interviewed, by people and i'm sitting the other day in the, oval office and i didn't like. The tone. And i said you know it's really nice. Because, i'm here and you're not. Oh. And i've said it before. You're the courageous, warriors, standing, in the way of. What they want to do and their goals, and standing, up for, faith and family, god country, and freedom. Freedom. Unbelievable. Spirit, i appreciate, it thank you very much. But the radical, left. They hate our history. They hate our values. And they hate everything. We prize, as americans, and we're right. Because, our, country didn't grow great. With them. It grew great, with you. And your thought process. And your ideology. The left-wing, mob is trying to demolish, our heritage. So they can replace, it with a new repressive. Regime. That they alone, control. They're tearing down statues. Desecrating. Monuments, and purging, dissenters. It's not. The behavior, of a peaceful, political, movement, it's the behavior, of. Totalitarians. And, tyrants. And people, that don't love, our country, they don't love our country. The left is not trying to promote, justice, or. Equality. Or lift up, the downtrodden. They have one goal the pursuit. Of their own. Political, power for whatever reason but that's their goal that really seems to be their goal. Their goal of their sickness. And if you give power to people. That demolish. Monuments. And attack, churches. And seize, city streets. And set fire to buildings. Then nothing, is sacred. And no one is safe. We stopped them last night do you see that andrew. Jackson. And. Brought some to jail. And others are going to jail. The problem we have is states they're weak, they're weak the uh. Many of the governors, many of the mayors you see what's going on and it's by the way just so you understand. It's all. Liberal. Democrat. States, could you imagine, if sleepy, joe. Ever became, president. This country, would be a mess. They would rip down, everything. Everything. Sleepy, joe. And he's he wouldn't call the shots. He would have nothing to do with it. Lock him in the oval office let's just do what we want to do. That's why. And you know today he's with obama, president, obama. It only took him how long a year and a half to endorse, him, what did it take a year and a half to endorse him. Even after he won he didn't endorse him for a long time. And he's fighting, he's fighting for sleepy jail you know he really feels strongly about it so strongly, that. He was fighting he wanted everybody to win but joe, joe won. But if you remember in my campaign. He fought harder than crooked hillary. President, obama, fought me harder. He said you cannot. Let him win. You cannot. This you he was all over the place i said this guy's, spending all of his time campaigning, against me, uh, who won. That's. Right. And don't forget. Don't forget. I'm only here because of him, and biden. I'm only here because of them. Because, if they did a good job. We wouldn't have been here. There would have been no reason. So i'm only here because of president, obama.
And The job he did. And, sleepy joe biden. And the job that he didn't do other than he did a good job. For his son. Did a good job. No but i'm only here because of them otherwise i wouldn't be here people were very unhappy. The fake news doesn't report it they were very unhappy there was tremendous, dissent. Tremendous, anger, a lot of people in this audience i can tell you but. We're here today to declare, that we will never, cave. To the, left wing. And the left wing intolerance. We will never. Surrender. To mob violence. And we will uphold, american, freedom. Equality. And justice, for every citizen, of every background, very strong. That's who we are. That is what we believe. And that is why, we, must, prevail. On november, 3rd we have to prevail, get out, there. So we're honored. To be joined, by. A great gentleman, a great governor of this state. He won by a lot of votes. And i said to him governor how am i doing he said you're doing really well, i said good, because he knows better than anybody he really has done a tremendous, job as governor. Arizona. Governor, doug, ducey where is doug. Thank you doc. Thank you. And somebody. Who we need. To keep in the senate. A woman. Who works very hard i just got back from, something you like the border wall. Martha. Mcsally. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you mom. We got to get her in and mark kelly who she's running against is very weak on china, and lots of other things. If, between, biden, and kelly and these people they get in china will own this country and they don't own us at all we have. We have done great before the plague, set in before the, plague came over right it came over. We were doing the greatest, we had the greatest. Economy, we ever had the greatest, job numbers we ever had, the greatest, of everything there wasn't a thing where we weren't number one. We were beating them and they were having a tough year, 67th. It was one of the worst years they had in 67. Years. And we were doing great. And then they said there's a plague, coming over from china, here it comes. What a disgrace. What a disgrace. And now you saw last week the jobs, numbers the biggest, ever. You saw the retail, sales, numbers. The biggest, ever, number one. And we're going to have a very good third quarter. And interesting, we're going to have a good third quarter and right, when those numbers are announced you have your election, so that's, hopefully, a sign, from up there. But i think we're going to do very well. And they are trying. To do their best to keep the country, shut down and close, because they love those numbers, not to be good but there's not a lot they're going to be able, to do about it not a lot. But we want to get martha, in and we want to i want to thank uh, martha for being here governor i want to thank you for being here i want to thank you for being such a great friend too thank you. And we also, have. Some of your. Warriors. Great representatives. And they fought with me on the impeachment, hooks, one of the great hoaxes, based on a telephone, conversation, that was perfect.

Perfect, this was like, the perfect, call i said wait a minute. I said we don't need lawyers just keep reading. Thank goodness we had it, transcribed.

Because i'll tell you, we caught him let's see what happens, but we caught him. Right. And a friend of mine that did a great job as the nasa. Cfo, and you see we've totally rebuilt, nasa we're sending rockets, up now for the first time in many years. Jeff dewitt. Jeff dewayne. Jeff height. Thank. You. Everyone, in this room is bound together, by a. Shared, set of, moral principles, and enduring. Truths. We believe the united, states of america, is the greatest, and most righteous, nation. That has ever existed. We're going to keep it that way. We believe that every citizen, has. The fundamental, right to think to speak, to live and pray according, to their own. Conscience. We believe, that the beloved, heroes, of american, history. Should not be torn down, by militant, mobs. But held up as an example. To the world. Now they're after george, washington. I said what did he do wrong george washington. Thomas, jefferson. We stopped them they were heading toward the jefferson, memorial. They have they couldn't care less. I think half of them don't even know who thomas jefferson, is. How about, ulysses. S grant. They want the confederate. Soldiers, but. All of a sudden they go after grant but he's the one that defeated. The confederate. Soldiers. So what's that all about. How about gandhi. How about churchill. You know churchill. Because this is going outside of our country, now. No we'll stop it don't worry just don't worry about it 10 years is a long time to spend in prison. So our heroes, are not a source of shame. They are an example. And. Something that you can all look up to a true example, of greatness. A point of pride, and we will honor them and cherish, them forever, we will cherish, them. And we have to cherish our past we have to cherish, good or bad we have to understand, our past we have to understand, our history, because if we don't know our history, it could all happen again. Have to know our. History. We believe in law and order, we support, the men and women of law enforcement. And we stand with the citizens. In every city, and every community. And every part of our country. Who wish to live in safety, security. Dignity, and peace. And we know. That american. Patriots. Don't bow down to foreign, powers, we don't back down. From left-wing. Bullies. And the only. Authority. We worship, is our, god. These are the values, our country, was built upon. These are the values, that unite, our citizens. And these are the values, that powered, our civilization. To its towering, heights lifting, billions, from poverty. Healing, disease, curing illness, and reaching new summits, of scientific. Endeavor. Artistic. Triumph. And human, achievement. Guided, by these timeless, convictions. My administration. Has been delivering, historic, gains. For the american, people. Like no one has ever done in the first, three and a half years of a presidency. Not even close, it's not even close. By the end of my first term. We will have close to, 300. Federal, judges, appointed, and, approved. 300. If you get 10 it's a lot 300. An all-time, record. And very importantly. We confirm, two great. Supreme, court justices. And we have to win. Because, obviously. We need. More justices. On the supreme, court, people don't realize how important that is. I've always heard it's the most important, thing you can do, i always said defense. But that's right there. Supreme court justices. And judges. And we are setting records. We spent over two trillion, dollars to completely, rebuild, the awesome power of the united, states military. And i very proudly, created, the sixth, branch, of the united, states, armed, forces, the, space. Force. Big deal, that's a big thing. That's a big deal you think it's just that if you did just that that's like uh that's a good presidency. Think of that, that's one of many many things. We'll go over a few of them. But many many things. So. The air force, was the last one that was 75. Years ago. The air force 75, years ago, we just created. Another branch. We're going to have a general nice general. We have right now on the joint chiefs of staff a full, full deal. And that's a great honor because space is going to be very important at first they smiled, when i came up with the idea i never talked about it in the campaign. I don't think i ever mentioned it once it's just an idea that i. Learned as i was going through military. And uh. Really an amazing, thing, space is going to be so important that'll be one of our most important, of all. And. It's an honor we're now doing a. Hydrosonic. I call it super dupers. Missile. Goes, 17. Times, faster, than the fastest, missile right. Now. We passed, va choice, a big deal.
And Va accountability. A big deal they've been drawing for 50 years almost, 50 years on both. Accountability. They couldn't fire people that treated our vets badly now we can say you're fired oh by the way you had a big deal. That's right. That's right you had a big deal in arizona, i've been reading about it for, years, now. Doug where they had somebody stealing. In the va and they caught up cold like 500. 000 right that's a lot. They stole 500, 000 they couldn't fire them. They couldn't fire them. So between the unions, and civil service and all of the things they couldn't fire but we made it so that you can now say you're fired, get out. Right. And they'll give our veterans, the care. They so richly, deserve you know choice is so big instead of waiting for a week two weeks five weeks you have no idea how bad it was. If they have to wait, and they have great doctors, we have great doctors, in, the va. If you have to wait, if for any reason there's a delay you go outside you get a doctor. You get fixed up we pay the bill. And it sounds expensive. It's cheap. It's cheap we save money most importantly we save lives, people would get online, and they're okay, not feeling well, by the time they see a doctor in some cases they, it's terminally, they, they are terminally, ill. It would take weeks and weeks. And now we have va choice that's why you see good stories, 91. Approval rating. Okay, 91. Approval. Va. Va, choice. Nobody thought we were going to get that one done. We passed the largest, package, of tax cuts and tax reforms. And we passed. The largest. Number, of regulation. Cuts, by a factor, of many times. No other administration. Even though in some cases, eight years and in one case more. Nobody, has cut regulation. Like we've got regulation. Not even close. And it's one of the reasons, we did so well. Before the plague, and we're doing so well after the plague. It's going away. We eliminated. Obamacare's. Unfair, individual. Mandate. Which punished, young americans. Like you. For the privilege, of. Not buying bad health insurance, that's really what it was, you had the privilege, of not buying and you had to pay for it not too good so we got rid of it. That was a big deal. That was one of the most unpopular. Things anywhere. On any subject. We will always. Protect, people, with pre-existing. Conditions. And you have martha's, pledge, that she is going to do that also. So. We're going to do that. And the democrats. Can't make that pledge because they're gonna raise your taxes, like crazy, i never heard you know all my life. I think doug can maybe explain, it but doug all my life. I'd watch. And the best politicians, who want to cut taxes, not raise taxes. All of a sudden we're in an age where things are very different let's face it ripping down statutes.
One Of the things is the democrats, want to raise your taxes. To a level that nobody can even believe. And it won't be nearly enough to pay for what they want to do you talk about bad health care. It's just going to be a disaster. But they want to raise everybody's, taxes. I always thought it was supposed to be the other way right. But, let's see how they do on november, 3rd i don't think they're going to do too well. We passed, right to try. To give critically, ill patients, access, to life-saving. Cures so they don't have to travel all around the world and see if they can find and we've had tremendous, success, with that right to try very proud of it they've been trying to get that one done for 40 years. And i've just come from the arizona. Border. Yuma. Where we marked. The completion, of over 220. Miles, of brand. New. Beautiful. Border. Walls. You know you don't hear about the they don't want to talk about the wall anymore do you notice. Never, has the democrat. Party, fought so hard. Against something. And do you notice they never talk about the world, because in the end they gave it up they gave up we won. We're building it fully. Funded. I could build numerous, walls with all the money i have fully funded. But you know why they don't talk about it because it's a bad subject. Remember they used to say it's obsolete. We want drones, oh great the drone's flying around. We're gonna watch everyone pour into our country the drone. Remember they said the wall's obsolete. And i said today nobody. Heard it i thought it was sort of, i think i said it but i'm sure people have said it over the years, you know. You're in an industry, in many cases you have a computer. In about two weeks it's old. It's obsolete, right. In technology. I said to some of the people i meet them all i say the problem with your business it gets obsolete, quick. Two things that will never be obsolete. A wheel, and a wall, right. A wheel. And they'd say that wall is obsolete. With modern, technology, no no modern technology. Is like, let's watch everybody, pour in. Now, we have a wall so we've built 220. Miles. We're going to have uh, and it's. Every, single, element i met with border patrol who are fantastic, by the way. Every, single, element they wanted, you have to see through, which makes sense, you have to do all of the different we have cameras, on it we have sensors, on it, it is. Just. 30 feet high. It's very hard. Very hard, we have anti-climb. Provision, on the top we have the whole deal. And it's very powerful, and by the way where that wall is nobody's, getting through, nobody. We put a chunk. California. Off the record, california.
Would Say please can we have the walt this is california, you know they don't want the wall they don't want the wall. But they wanted the wall, right because. Right next to san diego's, a wonderful town in mexico, you know the town i won't mention the name. But they're. Heavily, infected. With kovid. Do you ever notice, i said the other night did anybody see my speech the other night on saturday, night. So. What i said the other night there's never been anything where they have so many names i could give you. 19 or 20 names, for that right, it's got all different names wuhan. Wuhan. Was catching, on. Coronavirus. Right. Kung flu. Kung fu. Kovid. Kovid 19, kovit. I said what's the 19, kovit 19 some people can't explain what the 19. give me the, kovid, 19, i said that's an odd name. I could give you many many names. Some people call it the chinese, flu, the china flew. Right they call it the. China, as opposed to, china. I've never seen anything like it but here's the story. We. Are going to be stronger. Than ever before, and it's going to be. Soon. And i think you'll remember. You know now biden's, going around like he's a tough guy you know he doesn't know where the hell he is, where are you joe, joe where are you joe. Tell me where you are joe. But he's going around i stood up for china. You know his son walked out with 1.5. Billion to manage. And what he did. Where's hunter remember i said where's hunter, they came out with this t-shirt and some guy made a fortune. Where's hud. Where's, by the way where is hunter. Man, he did well as vice president could you imagine how hunter's, going to do if this guy ever won. And the father could honestly, say i have no idea what's going on. You know she could raise us um. Except kaylee. Where's caleb where is kaylee. Where is kaylee, where is mark kaley what a job she's done our press. Secretary. Everyone's, doing well our press director, these press secrets. I mean sarah is going to be the governor of arkansas. Pretty soon i. Hope. Shawn's, got his own show and this one here she could run whatever, else you wanted but i said don't run, don't run just stay here we like the job you do. Now we're doing great, i stood up to china like no other administration. In history for decades, they've ripped us off. They ripped us off like nobody, and. I charged them a little thing called the massive, tariffs. We took in billions, and billions of dollars, they devalued. Their currency, and you know they like to say are people paid no no no our people didn't pay they devalued, their currency in order to pay it and they also put money out there otherwise they wouldn't have been able to sell their product. But. What happened, for many years. There's nobody, ever, that ripped off the united states. Like china. Nobody. Nobody. Nobody. So now we did a deal but you know the ink wasn't dry when the. When the plague flew in. The ink wasn't dry. The deal was great everybody, was happy i was thrilled. 250. Billion dollars worth of purchases, over a short period of time all great. But the ink wasn't dry and we got hit by the plague. So i'm not too happy about that. But the long. Slow surrender, is over because, today. And every day, we are putting now.
America. First america, comes. First. We sparked, a revolution. In domestic. Energy, production, in the united, states, is now the number one producer, of oil. And natural, gas. Anywhere. On planet, earth. America. As of a couple of years ago, is no longer. Energy, dependent. We are now. Energy. Dominant. And because our energy use went down so much during this. Pandemic. It was a very very, bad period of time because we have. 10 million, jobs, energy jobs. And now we have the oil price up where it should be and yet people are paying very little for gasoline, that's like the perfect thing right, that's the perfect thing to do. And i signed, groundbreaking. Criminal, justice, reform which nobody was able to get done very important. Very important. Very, important. I secured, record, and permanent, funding for historically. Black colleges, and universities. Nobody knows that. And we created. Opportunity. Zones, along with tim scott. And since then countless, jobs, and 100, billion, dollars, of new investment. Have poured, into, 9, 000. Of our most. Distressed. Neighborhoods, in the country, 9 000. Opportunities. On so think of it. I did criminal, justice, reform. We did a lot of work on prison, or prison reform. We did opportunity. Zones think of this think of all we've done, and we've taken care of the. Black, colleges. And universities. And nobody, talks about it but i have to talk about it, and you know what. Our, black, communities. Know it, and i think you're going to see something, really great happen because they understand, it they really understand, it. And. I'll tell you what. Whether it's. Any community, you talk about, but if you take a look at those numbers, from, pre. Virus. But you take a look at them in a year from now you watch, and your 401s. Right now your 401ks. I don't think you want to have somebody else playing with them because you're just about, at a record high. And you put the wrong person, in, they will be obliterated. They will be obliterated. So we're fighting for school, choice. Because we know that access. To education. Is a civil. Right. The civil right. School, choice. Did you ever see two parties so diametrically. Opposed to each other i mean. It's who can be opposed to that. But it's so important but the democrats, will never ever allow that to happen last month. We returned. American, astronauts. To space, aboard american, rockets. For the first time in nearly a decade. And the united, states, will be the first nation. To plant, our beautiful, american, flag, on planet. Mars. And we destroyed. We destroyed. 100. Of the isis. Territorial. Caliphate. And the savage, terrorist, monsters. Al-baghdadi. And kasim. Salamani. They are both dead. 100. 100. Of the isis, caliphate, and when i took over that caliphate, was going like this it was a mess but we destroyed, it, no administration. Has accomplished. More. In just three and a half years it is i mean i could go after, these are just a few points, i could talk. For an hour and a half just reading the points off you know that. Yet as you know in recent, months. America, has faced down. That unseen. Enemy. The virus, from. The distant, land, that spread across the globe. And invaded, our shores but invaded the shores, of think of it, 88. 188. Nations. I have a friend he's a very smart guy i said i didn't know there were that many nations i said, actually go over 200. But. 188. Nations, that we know of i love you too thank you. Thank you. And tomorrow, the fake news will be said he said he loves somebody. He said he loves somebody. Terrible. Terrible. I'll be in big trouble the fake news. They are, terrible, people. Who are the two who are the people that stood up i just want to stand up please who said i love you. Let's. Whoa. Sit down fast please, dad don't let them see you. That's a lot of press back there look at that.
That's The problem they cover all these speeches you know i never have a speech done, i never have a speech where it's not like live television. You know sometimes you'll have one where you can actually. Speak and you don't have to worry about like one little slip. One, tiny little slip one word. You could say ten speeches, one little word they'll say. He's lost, it. No. You know who's lost it, sleepy, joe has lost, him. In response, we took swift, and early action. To ban travel, from china. Very very early remember. Nancy, pelosi, and that crazy, group. Nancy, pelosi. She wanted to dance, in the streets of chinatown, and san francisco. Long after i banned china from coming here. We saved. Tens, of thousands, of lives with that early decision. And then we made an early decision, on. Europe. Yet liberal, lawmakers. And democrat, politicians. Condemned, this policy. The left rejected. Science, in favor of their. Fanatical, devotion, to open borders they want open borders, not just, our southern, border. This is why the left is so dangerous. They always, put. Their ideology. Before. Your safety. It's crazy, what's going on, defund. And abolish. The police how's that a good idea. You know i passed, uh. A set i was in the white house and there was this, uh, set. And it had. Dem say. Think of it. Defund, and abolish. I said what are they going to defund. No i said it says defund, and abolish, i said, what, what are they going to defund and abolish i thought it was going to be something, they said, the police, i said oh, great, i just won the election, that's. Great. So in addition, to issuing, a series of aggressive, travel bans, my administration. Launched, the greatest, national, mobilization. Since, world war ii. We have done such a great job with this between the ventilators. And all of these things, including. Testing. We're testing, so much. We're now up to. 27.5. Million, tests i thought it was 25, because it seemed like, 25, million. 27, they just told me. 27.5. Million tests now, when you have all those tests you have more cases. So the news conference said they have more cases. Well yeah, if you're going to do 20 and if let's say, other countries, do 1 million, 2 million big countries. 3 million. Now four weeks ago germany, was at three million tests so i don't know what they are now but i know they're not anywhere near where we are, so then they'll say. We have more cases now look. We want to do testing, we want to do everything, but they use it to make us look bad. But because of it our mortality. Rate, is so low, it's so great what's happened. So we want to test. So we do all these tests. And we find pockets, so we find people and we find cases, and they say the cases, have jumped. Instead of saying, what a job we're doing with testing. But we did the job with testing. And we did. Ventilators. And we did we came up with tests that nobody's, we have so many different, types of tests we have the five-minute, test the 10-minute test, we have tests you send them to a public lab a private, we have tests. It's a lot of tests. And other countries that have done very well with testing they call us they say there's nobody that's been able to do the job with that you've done now the only ones i can't, get to say that are the fake news media people they can't. Say. Someday, it'll be recognized. By history. Someday. But our actions, and your selfless, sacrifice, and that's what it was saved hundreds, of thousands, of lives we had to do it and we did the right thing and i'll tell you what. We did the right thing, now we open we got to get it open because you know i said. Got to get it open people need it you know people get sick from the other also it's not just from the virus they get sick from. All of the other things that happen you know what i mean. We cut through red tape to accelerate. Breakthrough, therapies. And vaccines. We're going to have a vaccine, very soon. We distributed. 1.5. Billion pieces, of personal, protective, equipment. We unleashed. The medical. And logistical. Power of the united, states military. And thanks to our, efforts, not a single american, who needed a ventilator. Has been denied, a ventilator, that's impossible. Remember, when the new york governor governor cuomo said he needs 40 000 ventilators, now people said no no you need four thousand. Maybe five thousand, anyway we got what we thought was right they never needed all of them in fact they gave some to other people but he didn't need forty, forty thousand. As opposed to. Four thousand, or five thousand. Then it worked out great, then he wanted a hospital, built.
In The javits, convention, center we built it but he didn't use it he could have used it for the older people. It was brand new not infected. No infection. Then he wanted the boat, he wanted the boat to come up, the beautiful, beautiful, hospital, ship you know what that is called right. And, it came up. They could have used it for senior citizens, they didn't use it. And, it's a shame. It's a shame. It's a shame. We're now. The chief ventilator, producer, anywhere in the world we're helping, other countries, with ventilators, because ventilators, are very hard to make they're very complex, they're big they're expensive. And many countries are calling us asking for help they need ventilators, and we're able to do it because we're making thousands. Of ventilators, think of this thousands, of ventilators. A week. And to rescue, the u.s, economy, which is happening, now we passed over three trillion dollars. In relief, measures. We suspended. Student loan payments, and interest, for college, students. And to protect, jobs for young americans. Just like you, we took historic. Action. To block, the entry, of foreign, workers, into our nation. And we believe that companies, should hire american, workers. And american. Students, first they have to we got to go american. We got to go america. You know we were down to 3.4. 3.5. Unemployment. And that's one thing. But now we got to get it back to those numbers then we can think right that we can think about taking people in through merit, only through marriage. Or mostly through a marriage i better say mostly, because they'll say that's a terrible, thing. You know you can't make a little bit of a slip. They'll say he said only what about this what about that. Generally, speaking we like merit, okay. We want american. Students, to fill american, jobs that's the biggest difference, between us. And the left we know that our first duty. Is to take care of our citizens. Make, america. Great. Again. So before the play came in. We had the best of everything. We had the best interest, rates, we had the best unemployment. Rates, we had the best job numbers ever we had everything. Unemployment. For african, americans, hispanic, americans. Asian americans. Had all reached, the lowest, rates, ever recorded, in the history of our country. It's amazing how many categories.
Young, People. Young people without a high school diploma. Young people without, a college, diploma. We were number one on every list you can think of. Women. 75. Years. Not as good i'm sorry. But it was getting ready to hit the all-time. Women it was the best in 75, years so i have to apologize, can you believe that, we did the best in 75, years and i apologize, to women, but. We were ready to hit, the all time. And then we got, hit by something that should have never happened because they could have stopped it. Young people have seen their wages, rise by more than 10 percent, they've never seen anything like. That. We built the strongest. And most prosperous. Economy, in the history of the world. And we will do it again, very very quickly, it's happening, already. We've just added two and a half million, jobs, last month. Think of that that's the largest. Increase, in the history, of our country, two and a half million jobs in one month. And. Just to add the topping, as i mentioned. The 18. In retail, sales the surge, was the biggest, jump. Ever, recorded. In the issue of our country. The stock market. In the last. 50 days. Is the best, stock market, in history and it went up today again by the way. Think of that. Think of that. Go back a week. 50, days. The strongest. 50, days, in stock, market history, this is during. Hopefully, the end of the pandemic. But as we fight to restore, renew, and rebuild, our country. The heart left is trying to divide. Denigrate. And destroy. Our country, the american, people. Have watched in horrors, left-wing, extremists, have looted businesses. Violently. Assaulted. Innocent. Civilians. And brutally, injured hundreds. And hundreds. Of police officers. Are great police officers. They even, vandalize. That's right, the lincoln. Memorial, the lincoln. Memorial. The radical, left thinks the future. Belongs, to them no the future belongs to you it belongs to people that love our. Country. We're not going to take moral, lectures. From the same. Left-wing. Ideologues. Who oppose school choice. Who support, deadly, sanctuary. Cities. Who want to defend. Our police, to fund and abolish, our police. Think of it the fund and abolish, is now their theme. And who preside, over the violence, and mayhem.
Of The 20 most dangerous, cities in america, 20 for 20, 20, most dangerous, run by democrats. And it'll happen to our country. If a guy like joe biden gets in, because joe biden. Has no control. Over what's happening. They won't even be talking to them. The murder rate in detroit. And baltimore. Is higher than that. Of el salvador. Guatemala. Or afghanistan. But the left launches, no protests. Over these. Travesties. The travesties. Because it doesn't serve their radical, agenda. Think of that. Tougher than afghanistan. All run by. Democrats. While their movement is based on hate. Ours is based on love. Love of our family, love of our nation. And love of our fellow. Citizens. We embrace, the noble, vision. Of reverend, martin luther king jr. And believe, that. People should not be judged. Based on the color of their skin. But the content. Of their. Character. This is a choice of two futures. The left's vision. Of disunity. And discord. Or our vision. Of equal, opportunity. And equal. Justice. Every american, should take. A long, look. At the bedlam, in seattle. Because that's exactly, what. Will come. To every city near you. Every suburb. And community, in america. If the radical, left democrats. Are put in charge. They want to abolish, ice. Do you have any idea, how. Patriotic. Ice people are i know, they are very tough, i agree. They're very tough i agree, they like to fight i agree. But you don't want to do it look i'm looking at some pretty tough guys right here look, you're not going to do it, he's not going into a. Into an ms-13. Nest. Swinging, swinging, now. These guys are tough, they're smart. They're getting them out by the thousands, they're taking, ms-13. Out of our country by the thousands. They want to abolish, ice. Get rid of ice abolish. Bail they want no bail anymore just you know we put you in for murder, it's okay come back whenever you have a chance. Do you see what's going on in some places like philadelphia. What's happening in philadelphia, what's happening in. Other cities. Look at what's going on in chicago, what's that all about. Chicago. Is a great city. But they want to abolish, borders. And abolish, every police, department, in the country. The democrats. Are also trying to rig the election. By sending out tens, of millions, of mail-in, ballots. Using, the china, virus. As the excuse, for allowing, people. Not to go to the polls, hey we have a virus, coming we have to send, think of it california. He's going to be sending out. Millions. And millions, of ballots. Well. Where are they, going, where are these ballots going. Who's getting, them. Who is not getting, them. A little section that's republican. Will they be, stolen, from mailboxes. As they get put in by the mailmen. Will they be taken, from the mailmen, and the mail women. Will they be forged. Who is signing, them, who's signing, them what are they signed to the kitchen table and sent in.
Will They be counterfeited. By groups. Inside, our nation. Will they be counterfeited. Maybe by the millions, by foreign, powers. Who don't want to see trump win because, nobody. Has been tougher, on trade. Or making. Our country, great again. Nobody. No male in ballots, is a disaster, for our. Country. It's going to end up in a big fight you know look look just just forget about all of this stuff, forget about speeches, and teleprompters. And all of that. They send out millions of ballots, who's getting them. How they deliver it. Who's not getting them think of it. It's going to be fraud, all over the place, and if you look right now. If you look right now. Look at all of the disputes, they're having on mail-in, ballots. A friend of mine who's a great guy. Had a son who passed away seven years ago. Seven years ago. He came to see me the other day. He said they just sent to my son robert. A male in ballot. He died seven years ago. There's no way they can control, that. Mail-in, ballots. You introduce. Something in the middle of an election, year. And you have something, where. It's very complex, you have no time. To fix this very complex. Process, it's very complex. This will be in my opinion, the most corrupt, election. In the history of our country. And we, cannot. Let, this, happen they want it to happen so. Badly. We believe, in the sacred, principle, of one person. One vote. And that's why we are fighting. For the integrity. Of our. Elections. Absentee. Ballots. Are fine. Absentee, ballots, are fine. Like i live. In the white house. And if i can't get to florida. Or you. Live wherever you live you can't but you have to go through a process, some people just can't. Make it to a polling, station. And they have good reason but they have to go through this process, in order to. Verify. Their, identity. People went to the polls, and voted during world war one. They went to the polls, and voted during world war ii, we can safely, go to the polls. And vote, during. Covid. 19.. And there is tremendous, evidence, of fraud. Whenever you have mail-in ballots. And frankly. If we are really, going to protect, our elections, and some people don't want to hear this. We, must, have, voter. Id. So as long as i'm president. America, will be, a land of fair laws swift justice, and safe communities. And that's why when, rioting, and looting broke out in our nation's, capital, i quickly, deplored. I came in i deployed, the, national, guard very quickly. Mark meadows, was there with a lot of our people there. We stopped the, violence. We saved that incredible. Statue, you saw it last night, and restored, peace and order. To the streets, although i will tell you they did great damage, to the cannons, that were on the ground they did great damage, but we'll get them fixed. We'll get them fixed. Lock them up yeah, lock them up. It's incredible, how they can do it incredible. Well they did damage. We're lucky we just got there in time you saw the rope's going up we got there just and i'll tell you law enforcement, did a great job they rushed him. They rushed him. And these people fought back and the law enforcement, was much tougher much sharper much better they really. Had no trouble handling, them, it was like handling, a baby for them was just like a baby. A lot of spoiled, people, in that group you know a lot of spoiled. A lot of spoiled rich people, saying what are you doing here. I've also made clear that any rioters, damaging, federal property, and defacing, our monuments. Will face severe and lengthy, criminal, penalties, 10 years. Many of the young people here today have had. Your own encounters, with left-wing. Extremists, such as antifa. Joining us today are two students, from north carolina. State university. Great place great state. Chris thomas, and jack bishop. Please come on up fellas come. On. How are you guys phoenix. Awesome. Listen thank you so much mr president. Uh it's great to be out here in phoenix, i this is the first time i've ever been here i've got to say it's been the experience, of a lifetime.
And Listen i'm going to keep this short and sweet. I just want to say that conservative, censorship, on campus. Is real and it's happening, all across the country, all the time. This past year, at nc state, we were having a event our turning point chapter was. For charlie, kirk and laura trump at her alma mater nc state. And we were posting, ads advertisements. In our free expression, tunnel where you're allowed to paint whatever you want. We were making some advertisements. And. We had about. 20. Socialist. Thugs, roll up from antifa. And from the young democratic, socialists, of america. Now. Now for our trouble, of course they, rolled up and attacked, us and they started spraying, all over, the the, work that we had just done, and for my trouble, of uh i stood the line, and tried my best to uh, to control, to keep them from, from. Defacing, our ads and for my trouble, i was spray painted in the eye. No. And unsurprisingly. Of course the school, did nothing. There's a surprise. And they let antifa, run roughshod. Over our event. Uh they let them in the in the. Room with us they were protesting. Screaming, so loud that you could barely hear the speakers, the entire time. And of course. Nc state like many administrations. Across the country, does the will of the radical, left. Meanwhile, conservatives. Across the country. Are punished, and blacklisted. Merely for expressing, our own opinions. We're ostracized. And ousted, with no support whatsoever, from the administration. But let me tell you when administrations. Across, the country. Do the will of the la of the left and cater to the mob. It's our duty as conservatives. To stand up and to fight for our rights and to fight for our nation and to fight for our. God. And you know mr president. Mr president, my dad, congressman, dan bishop, he likes to say that you like to say that he's not a choker. Mm-hmm. And let me tell you, mr president. Us college conservatives. We ain't chokers. Neither. We're going to win this election. We're going to take back the house. We're going to keep the senate, and we're going to get four more years. Of the breast presidency, of my lifetime. The presidency, of donald, j. Trump. Thank you. God bless you, and god bless the united, states of. America. Mr president, uh thank you so much it is an honor to be here with you today. Thank you for giving attention to our situation. When the mainstream, media back there, wouldn't touch the story. Conservatives. Across, this country. Are treated, different, every day by their professors, and other students on campus. I was mocked by a leftist, on my campus not for my conservative, beliefs. But for a medical condition, i have that impacts my hair growth, and my ability to sweat. I learned that when these leftist ideas fail, they resort to personal, attacks. Because they have no facts to back up their radical, beliefs. Imagine, how much. Of a fit the mainstream, media would have thrown at 15, to 20 kids, in maga hats, had come up and spray painted a kid in the eye, and made some someone else for a medical condition, they have. Our school north carolina state did not do anything, about this, they didn't discipline, them and it was no coincidence, that the antifa, logo. Showed up on the free expression, tunnel the next day. We are blessed to have a president like you that has devoted to protecting, free speech on college campuses. And thank you president trump and students, for trump, let's keep america. Great. Great job fellas thank you. So. You know i signed an executive, order as you know. And based on what i'm just hearing, you should maybe, be talking to charlie or somebody, around here about defunding, that school because that's.
That's. That's, exactly. What. The executive, order was based on. So uh. You talk to the people. Maybe have your father call his father's a great congressman, done a great job. So uh say hello to him but you talk to them that's exactly what it was for we did something that was. Radical but it wasn't radical to me. You have to be heard and if you can't be heard. Let's talk about it okay. Has the radical, left. Inflict, violence, on american, streets they're also. Waging, war on, timeless. American, values, like, freedom of speech. Which is what we're just talking about. Anyone who dares to speak the truth. Is, cancelled. Censored. Deplatformed. Fired, expelled. Harassed, abused. Boycotted. Deprived, of a livelihood. Or even, physically. Assaulted. Those times will be changing, very soon. You can judge a movement, by its behavior. And the young patriots, here today. Don't destroy, property. You don't burn buildings. You don't punish, dissenters. And you don't try to erase, the people. With whom you disagree. It's called. Civilized. People, you're civilized. People. And yet remember i said this, you're civilized, but you're much tougher. Than the other side you're much. Tougher. You conduct, yourselves, with honor integrity. And dignity, because, you know the truth. The facts. And the history. All on your side. We're joined today by. Reagan. Escorta. A student at northwestern. State. University. Of louisiana. Reagan became a target of liberal, cancer, culture. When she dared to stand up for her christian, values. Instead of bowing, to political, correctness. Reagan, please come up and say a few words. Please. Well thank you mr president, for being here today with all of us and for inviting me up here to tell, of my experience, with canceled culture. My name is reagan esquiday, i graduated, from northwestern. State university, of louisiana, in 2019. And i started, my first job. At a small, private insurance, company in louisiana. A few weeks ago amidst all this chaos, that we're seeing with the black lives matter movement i made a video on my instagram. And i talked about, how disappointed. I am, in the church's reaction. To the black lives matter movement. Um. I've seen pastors. Call for. White congregants. To kneel. And to apologize. And to apologize. For the skin that god, gave them. And i and i addressed, these, evangelical. Pastors, and leaders, and and reminded. Them, that. Racism, is a problem in the heart it is a sin problem that cannot be resolved by any law. Protest. Or march. And. So. Of course. My leftist. Followers, didn't appreciate, this message at all. I had my name blasted, all over social media. And. Um, people told me you know i'm ashamed, to have ever called you my friend. I've lost all respect, for you. I love y'all. And so. An ex-co-worker. Of mine made a post on facebook about me calling me racist and homophobic. And she listed my place of employment. And called for people to call my employer and have me fired. There were death threats, made to the owners. There were threats to knock down the building, law enforcement, had to get involved. And, due to the, crazy, reaction. From the leftist, mob my employer, told me that they came to the conclusion.
That They needed to terminate my. Employment. But here's the thing, here's the thing. Losing, my job is a small, price to pay when god's name is being. Glorified. And he will always, make his name known. But i share, i share this story with you. I share this story with you because what happened to me is is just a small example, of something that's happening on a much larger scale in our nation. Aunt jemima. Was cancelled. And if you didn't know, nancy green the original, first aunt jemima, she was a picture of the american, dream. She was a freed slave. Who went on to, be the face of the pancake, syrup that we love and, have in our pantries, today. She fought for equality. And now the leftist mob is trying to erase, her legacy. And might i mentioned. How privileged, we are as a nation. If our biggest concern is a bottle of pancake, syrup. And more recently. We're seeing a call for, statues, of jesus christ to be torn. Down. Now, i'm a little confused here because last week jesus was a social justice warrior and this week he's he's the face of white supremacy. And jimmy kimmel has been calling our president racist for years, and it turns out he's the racist. There's, there's governors. That are getting away with wearing blackface. That's just sliding under the radar. So, i want to encourage you all to, stand, firm, in your beliefs. We need truth, we need hard cold facts and truth now more than we ever have before, and we are so blessed, to have a president. Who stands, on the front lines. Walks through the fire, every day. To fight, for our god-given. American. Freedom. Do not, apologize. To the mob. And thank you president, trump for never apologizing. To the mob, for always standing, firm. For being here for the american, people and for fighting for our best interest because you are the change that we need to see in america. Thank. You. Thank you reagan. That was. Beautiful. Know as your story reminds us reagan. True courage, is defying, the left's. Orthodoxy. Not submitting, to we don't submit, nobody should be submitting. Because we're winning and we're going to win. But you don't submit. The fake news progressive, companies, right there they're right back there watching us. And other institutions. Merely, towing, the. Left wing line. Have sacrificed. Their intellectual. Credibility. And professional, integrity. They have very little integrity, left, some of them have none. You're the ones taking real risks, you're showing real guts. And making a virtuous, stand. With the rise of social media, massive.
Multinational. Tech companies, have tried. To clamp, down on american, democracy. That even means on me. And as everyone, knows. They're using their enormous, power to silence, conservative. Voices, you know that. It's not even close i don't even think they're hiding it anymore. To protect, our democracy. I signed an executive, order. To remove, legal protections. For social, media companies, that unjustly. Censor. American. Citizens. The radical, left is also, working, to eliminate, free speech, on our college, campuses. With us today. Is nia moore. A student at the university, of saint thomas, in minnesota. Who is experiences. Persecution. First hand dia. Please come up. Please. First i just want to say thank you to mr president for having me on stage today. So. If you didn't know much about minnesota, about a month ago, i'm sure you've seen us in the headlines, over the past few weeks. The dfl. Is successfully, moving our state. Farther to the left more and more each day. Now that isn't because people aren't conservative, in minnesota. It's because they're hell-bent. On demonizing. Us at every turn. I began, my career. Working in politics, with turning point usa. Unfortunately. Due to the leftist culture. Of my campus, at north hennepin. We were shut down almost immediately. And refused, official, recognition. I was told by the faculty. That political, groups were not welcome, on campus. However, they had multiple, leftist, groups, that supported. The black lives matter movement. They were pro-abortion. And they've advocated, for bernie sanders. Our governor. The mayor i am sorry. Our governor. The mayor of minneapolis. And. The, representative. Of the fifth congressional, district in minnesota. Are all democrats. But for whatever reason. The republicans. And the president, take the blame for what has taken place. Unfortunately. The murder of george floyd. Has created. Absolute, chaos, in my state of minnesota. They have. Sorry that's my. Place. Ever since the murder of george floyd. I have not seen, as much division. Deceit. And destruction. In my life. Black lives matter, only makes the scene during election, years. How convenient. That they made the biggest scene of all, during the year of the most important. Election, of our. Time. Black lives matter, is only about police brutality. Once every four years. In between. They're heavily, funding, a push for leftist and lgbtq. Plus agendas. The black community's, culture, is naturally, very conservative. So they mask, their hidden agendas, and play on the community's, biggest. Fear. If black lives matter, truly cared, about black lives. They would not have allowed the riots, to destroy, black businesses. And black. Communities. If they cared, about black, lives. They would defund, planned. Parenthood. If black lives matter. Cared, about black lives. They would address, the astronomically. High numbers. Of black on black crime, in inner. Cities. They try to paint us as the bad guys for not supporting, the organization. But it's not, the same black lives matter. I think there's very few conservatives. That believe black lives don't matter. We do believe black lives matter. We just believe they all matter, not just the lives. The left chooses, to exploit. I am the field director. For ilhan, omar's, challenger, lacey, johnson. He is the first republican. In minnesota. To have, black lives matter activists. And lifelong, democrats. Want to hear what he has to say. Because of that, they've tried to silence, us at every turn. People are fed up and they're getting nervous. They. Will stop at nothing, to keep our their hold on us, even if that means lying to the very people they're supposed to represent. Mr president, i just want to say, thank you for being a great example, of a big tent republican. The president, has never needed the black vote to win. But, he has still done incredible, work with prison reform. Lowering, black unemployment. Funding, hbcus. And stimulating, the black community. With opportunity. Zones. All without, pandering. Once upon a time. The president, asked the black community. What we had to lose. We didn't have anything. But now we do. Thank you mr. President. Thank you. Thank you. Well leah i want to just tell you first of all thank you very much and so heartfelt, i could see that. And i also issued a historical. Executive, order. Defending. Free speech, and. All of this is on college campuses. And i will tell you that. It's something that's being used by. People like charlie and used very well and it's opening, up a whole new voice. Then it's my honor to have done it under my order any college that refuses. To let you speak stands to lose billions, of dollars, in terms of the overall, system. So we've done a lot. We've really gone, very far. We've taken it to a level that nobody's, ever taken it and it's my honor to have done it, it's people like you that i do it for when you think about it it's people like you you're going to be the ones you're going to be the ones that.
Are At the crossroads. Of history that's where you are right now you're at a crossroads. Everything. Our forefathers. Built. Everything, generations. Passed. They shed their blood to defend, the very survival, of our freedoms, our rights. And our republic. They're all at stake this is a very big time in our country. It's a time like perhaps, no other. But standing, here before you today i have never been more, confident, that america, will rise. To new heights of greatness, and glory. Because your generation. Is proving, that your hearts, are filled with the fire. And the fervor. Of true. American. Patriots. The great spirit of righteous. Defiant, stirs, deep within you i see that. It's the same spirit that drove america's, founders. And frontiersmen. People that. Built our nation. People that succeeded. People that worked hard people that failed. People that failed. Some people failed and then they made it bigger than, anyone, would have ever believed possible. To defend, all of your liberties, to secure. Your independence, and establish, this noble, fortress, of freedom. It's the same spirit, that. Compels, each of you to stand strong, agai
