PRESIDENT TRUMP Delivers Remarks at Conservative Political Action Conference


well I want to thank you Matt and I’m thrilled to be back at CPAC with the thousands of proud American patriots who love our country respect our flags honor our history uphold our laws protect our Constitution and always put America first right in a long time we had a great night yesterday in South Carolina I was incredible we filled up a stadium like you haven’t seen the stadium was packed and thousands of people outside and I saw the competitors our competitors that have like two people on a street corner it’s it’s incredible what’s going on this is a movement like honestly like nobody’s ever seen before we say that we say that and you know if it wasn’t so the fake news media would be all over us say it wasn’t so he exaggerated if I say it all the time they never change it you know every once in a while you see somebody who did well let’s say well in New Hampshire or did well not even win it in Iowa and the whole life of that person is made because you do we won the election we did well in those places sit down everybody oh I’d sit down we won the election so it’s great and I came here and I got to know Matt in Mercedes early on and I made a speech before I thought about doing this they said would you speak I was very famous then too I guess more famous now why I was very famous and I made a speech and they liked the speech and said you had a run for president said no thanks remember that you had a run for president we had a big crowd and it was the apprentice was doing so well it was like a hot to put it mildly show and Matt said you ought to run for president I said let me give it a little thought and a couple of years later we said let’s do it and then they said I never forget one of the people respected guy Charles Krauthammer right he said on this isn’t so but he said on Fox she said now why would he do this you have 17 of the most talented professionals ever assembled that are running why would he run he’s not going to run and if he does he’s only doing it for fun you think this has been fun does anybody does anybody think Mercedes you think this has been fun I don’t think you know this has been a just a ball we’ve had a ball but you know what you know what we’re we’re doing so well and we’re doing so much no administration has ever done what we’ve done in the first three years nobody who packs cots Supreme Court judge EC 218 judges are up to 218 including DC but together we’re defeating the radical socialist Democrats the fake news media the crooked politicians and the hate-filled left-wing mob and I told you I was gonna be nice today say as I said let’s be nice today it’s hard to be nice when they treat you so badly right only a fool is nice when they treat you so badly we’re defending our faith our values our heritage our borders our rights and our god-given freedoms we’re doing that this is an incredible look at all those people back there this place has grown look wow that’s fantastic I don’t know who they are met but they must be very special this little group over here for Matt to block out half the arena for this group of people I’m trying to figure out who are they at first I thought they were the fake news I said it’s too bad they have such a good location I don’t know who you are but you’re very important very important people we’re exposing the corruption of the Washington Democrats and we’re draining the Washington swamp I just didn’t know how dirty it would be I didn’t know how deep it would be what I said drain to swamp for a long time you know I was given that expression a speechwriter gave it to me said drain and so I said that’s so hokey I said that’s the worst I don’t want to use it anyway it ends up in one of the speeches I said we will drain the swamp right the place went crazy I said let’s try it again and we did it again and placement now here’s the bad part I never knew the swamp was so bad it’s really bad but we’re winning and we’re winning not easy but we’re willing a lot of dirty people a lot of very bad people a lot of bad people and I think I think justice will be had I do believe that or I wouldn’t be very happy right now we got through everything we’ve got through they gave us the Muller hoax they gave us the Russia Russia Russia crap they get us the one phone call there was a perfect phone call let’s get them out of office for that phone call but you know the Republicans stuck together except Romney of course you know [Music] low life low life except Romney they stuck together and even him I got half a vote so you know see I say I think it because he did actually vote one pie he couldn’t do it all you know because he wanted to get some nice free publicity for himself but it was fifty two and a half out of fifty three votes I guess you can say that right fifty two and a half right so think of it the Republicans were Fanta I tell you what that’s when you find out who your friends are really it is and we hit fifty two and a half votes and in the house we had 107 think of it 107 to nothing with the Republicans 107 to nothing and we got three Democrats and one came over and left the democrat party van drew Jeff Andrew and really together we’re preserving this exceptional nation that our ancestors fought and died to build we are making America greater than ever before we really are I think it’s going to be greater than ever before with what we’re doing with our military and what we’re doing also to get rid of very bad people we have such bad people and they’re not then that people that love our country we’re getting people that really love our country and it’s so important and if I wasn’t able to fulfill that no matter what other things we’ve done I would not consider this journey to be a success so just remember that one of my most important promises to the American people was to end America’s long-running wars in the Middle East American forces and we’re all warriors folks but 19 years I see the people I go over and I say hello to those incredible soldiers over at Walter Reed what talent you have at Walter Reed those doctors by the way they have to be the best of the world what they could do and I see the arms and the legs missing and I see what’s happened to some of these incredible beautiful people and I see the strength the spirit the spirit that they have most of I mean even if they can’t walk if they’ve lost both legs they want to go back sir we want to go back I want to go back and it’s just incredible to say it and I’m gonna mention it a little bit later but you know we knocked out Soleimani the father of the roadside bomb we killed him and al-baghdadi [Applause] Sallah mani was Sola mani was the they call him the father of the roadside bomb he thought it was great the great bomb and you know he thought it was great it kept getting bigger and more sophisticated one young man he said my last day it was my last day in Afghanistan and they had to mine detectors and he said I trusted this man with my life he was the best I’ve been never seen anything like it he could detect those we felt so safe but unfortunately his last day they made him out of plastic so you couldn’t detect him and it went off killed the man whose the detector and badly badly injured a lot of people and he was one of them and he said think of it sir I said why did it go if he said because they made it out of plastic and the plastic does he get detected by the metal detector and that was the last day and he lost his legs but we took that son of a bitch out didn’t we have should have been done a long time ago that should have been done a long time ago that’s it have been done a long time and al Baghdady he’s the father of Isis and we defeated Isis in the Middle East we have defeated 100% of the Caliphate but we said to the Europeans say take your soldiers we killed many many terrorists when I took over by the way it was a mess there was so much if they I hate to say this Republicans but they had maps and it was all red red mint Isis I hate to say it I said let’s change the color I actually did change ago but they showed me maps and large portions of Iraq and Syria Isis said we don’t want him ever to come here and I had some great people and have some incredible generals and I had a decision to make because that was just not they were not doing it right and we made the decision and we took him out remember I got to 98% and I said all right now I can bring our people back home sir and then what happened is the press they didn’t care but they went crazy he didn’t complete the job I was at 98% Matt they said he didn’t complete the job I said general complete the job and they completed the job but the Europeans should be helping us because many of those people that were guarding now thousands and thousands of Isis fighters and others and many of those people will go home to France and Germany and UK and others and we say take them no no no we don’t want them see this is it we do things for other people and then they forget our allies sometimes our allies treat us worse than our enemies I hate to say this sometimes they did it’s very sad get him a big favor but that’s all right it’s all working out very well but we took out al Baghdadi who everybody was after that was you’d see him all the time speaking with a fan that was an old picture he was young he got older but they were looking for him for 16 years and one of the first things I said when I came in is you got to find this guy al Baghdadi yes sir all of a sudden they walk in they said we have him sir we’re following them over the Middle East he’d move from place to place to place we’re following them sir and then they said so we have him and I had to give an order and I gave an order and I’ll tell you what 66 the most incredible soldiers you’ve ever seen they went in on eight helicopters and you know in modern day warfare you can watch I mean I’m watching it I’m watching it from the Situation Room you believe it it was like you can’t make a movie like this for instance there’s no dog like Conan no dog there’s no dog like Conan right fact Conan after the operation was a tremendous success they were looking for him for a long time and it was a lot of violent fighting and then ultimately we got him he was in a tunnel at the end of a tunnel and Conan was going after him Conan almost was electrocuted you know that story but the guys would after him and we got him but you wouldn’t believe how great it felt and when you saw the professionalism of the soldiers I can’t even tell you there’s nobody has a military like we have there’s nobody with the talent that we are ok they got him and he knew it you know you know as soon as he heard that first little explosion that took him about 3 seconds that blew the hell out of the wall I said why don’t they go through the front door said sir you go through the front door you got a lot of bullets coming at you they went through a solid concrete wall they put stuff up boom so fast so now they’re shooting the other guys from behind that’s much better right guys I said who’s that guys were unbelievable you don’t have a movie like that and Conan actually Conan was given more press than you precedent tell me there’s a like about a half a day story somebody else would have done it it would have been the greatest thing ever happened but that’s all right I do it for a different reason I do it because we have to keep ourselves safe I do it also for all of the people that they killed and wounded they killed and wounded a lot of people but American forces cannot be the policemen for the entire world were all over the world and a lot of times would not even appreciate it it’s taken for granted we can’t be the policemen for the world and the democracy builders we just can’t do that for every nation that seems to have difficulty especially for those nations that don’t appreciate what we do and there are many of them many of them and that goes with trade also we’ve changed a whole thing around their job is to be secure my job is to make sure that we’re secure and to defend our country first our country today the United States the years they’ve been trying to do this and today the United States signed a deal with the Taliban so that we can hopefully begin the immediate process of finally bringing our troops back home nineteen years nineteen years thank you and as you know others wanted to do it we got it done and just signed it and I want to thank a lot of people we really have to think you know we have to thank the families and those incredible people that lost their lives to start off with okay those incredible families I’ve gotten to know so many of families and we have to thank our wounded warriors that came home missing limbs and serious serious folks our great wounded warriors wood taking good care of them and I want to just thank our military because you know we’ve been really a police force there for the last long time and we’re not supposed to be a police force was supposed to be fighting soldiers and we could win that war very easily if we wanted to lose kill a million people that have nothing to do with it that don’t know anything about us and it’s really a great feeling I saw it I watched the ceremony today early in the morning on our television and Mike Pompeo secretary State Secretary of Defense espers done a great job so Pompeo and Esper were actually in different location signing with different groups pretty complicated deal I have to be honest but in exchange for the Taliban’s action against Al Qaeda and other terrorists who could threaten us we’re prepared to begin those force withdrawals and if the Taliban and the Afghan government live up to their commitments and they may or they may not but I think we have a lot of reason why they will I think they will that means that the longest war in American history by far it’s not even close will be over and again the agreement was made possible by the extraordinary bravery of our American warriors the sacrifice of these incredible people their allies and I want to also thank I will say this NATO came in and Secretary General Stoltenberg of NATO you know we had 28 essentially 28 countries participating in this and they’re very happy to be out there very happy to be soon to be doing other things and I’ll say this for the Taliban they’re great fighters you know that obviously they’re great fighters all you have to do is ask the Soviet Union are they great fighters but they they’re tired also they this is 19 years 19 years so very happy to announce that this group in particular it’s just sort of I should say we scheduled it for our CPAC day that you know we scheduled to speak for CPAC is what better place but we salute those who gave their lives and we salute all of those incredible people and after years of rebuilding foreign nations we are finally rebuilding our nation and taking care of our own American citizens it’s time right it’s time you remember recently when I took the soldiers out of Syria and everyone said well we have to protect the border between Turkey and Syria why why what does it have to do with us they’ve been fighting for a thousand years what does it have to do with us why are we protecting the border you can’t do that I did it we created a safe zone and I did leave a number of soldiers because we kept the oil there’s oil there we kept the oil if it’s okay so they say he left soldiers said no no I love soldiers to keep the oil okay they don’t want to say that they like to say kept soldiers there he he didn’t tell the truth these people are the worst we so much easier for our country if we had a press that told the truth true and we’re also committed to ensuring that those who mean to do us harm as a nation even as individuals are denied admission to America they’re not allowed into our country and we have some very very powerful people right now our borders are strong all of the 9/11 hijackers came here on visas and we had determined to keep radical Islamic terrorists the hell out of our country and we’re keeping them out border security is also health security in our efforts to keep America safe my administration has taken the most aggressive action in modern history to control our borders and protect Americans from the corona virus came from China in the early stages of the foreign outbreak I ordered sweeping travel restrictions to prevent uncontrolled spread of this disease I took a lot of heat because they did it very early you know we had never done it before Matt never done it before and we had never done anything like that before so not only did we do it but I did it very early and that decision has been now given very good grades like an A plus plus plus I took a lot of heat even from my own people but we did the right thing the extreme fringe is called as racists for imposing these critical life-saving measures they wanted to let infected people pour into our country I don’t think they knew how bad it was in all fairness but nothing will deter us from protecting the well-being of the American people [Applause] my job is to protect Americans and also very crucially in this case to protect Americans health and we’ll do that and we will do it with a vigor that is why today my admit I think you that is why today my administration announced new measures to protect Americans to the fullest extent possible in addition to the existing ban on travel by most Iranian Nationals we’re banning the travel of anyone who has been to Iran in the last 14 days they’re having a very big outbreak and I say here now if we can help the Iranians we’re doing certain things for them now and if we can help the Iranians we have the greatest health care professionals in the world and if we can help the Iranians with this problem we are certainly willing to do so we would love to be able to help them and all they have to do is ask we will have great professionals over there we have the best of the world and we’re raising the State Department travel advisories for South Korea and Italy unfortunately including a level 4 that’s the highest do not travel they do not travel advisory for several areas of both countries there are two areas of each country that is very heavily infected and we urging Americans to exercise increase caution throughout all of Europe we will do everything in our power to keep the virus and those carrying the infections from entering our country as you know we took in approximately 40 people there were Americans and they may have had it some had it but they will put in quarantine and it’s working out many of them are in good shape right now and they’re better than going home it’s time for all Americans to put politics aside and to come together to work for the health safety and security of the American people a grateful because you know I watch and maybe it’s a natural reflex but I watch because we have done a great job I mean if nothing else making that very early decision weeks weeks early and we’ve done a great job and I’ve gotten to know these professionals that are incredible and everything is under control I mean they’re very very cool they’ve done it and they’ve done it well everything’s really under control but when they put a mic in front of a Democrat and the Democrat said doesn’t even know what’s going on how is Trump door he’s doing a terrible job well sadly I’d probably say the same about them you know I guess it’s a natural reflect how is Donald Trump doing nervous Nancy he’s doing a terrible job terrible cry and Chuck Schumer I mean he goes he sees a mic he’ll run 200 yards to get to a mic he always did in New York same thing he’d run hundreds of yards to find a mic and then he’d start screaming he’s doing a terrible job what job I don’t know what’s he working on there now we have to be able to do this is a different kind of a deal I mean you know it’s we’ve made great deals we’ve made great trade deals great everything but this is different we got to be very careful with this stuff and if we’re doing a good job [Music] and it’s really the professionals they have to be given a lot of credit for it because a lot of people wouldn’t be able to do it so we have to make it nonpartisan we can in just three short years under my administration we’ve already achieved unprecedented victories and unrivaled gains for our citizens as I said in my State of the Union address we are in the midst of the great American comeback that’s what is happening our economy is roaring jobs a booming opportunity is soaring poverty is plummeting crime is falling an American stronger today than ever before stronger today our military is incredible we have rebuilt our incredible US military revived our industrial might and restored our standing in the world America is respected again respected like never before [Applause] since my election America has gained 7 million new jobs 5 million more than government experts projected at the end of the last administration they were saying the most she could possibly do is 2 million we did 7 million I never even said we were gonna do 7 that’s a lot of jobs unemployment has reached the lowest rate in over 51 years the average unemployment rate for my administration is the lowest for any president in the history of the United States that’s a good that’s a good that’s a good one the unemployment rate among african-americans Hispanic Americans and Asian Americans has reached record lows all record lows everyone lowest ever young people have seen their wages increased by 16 percent a record and their wages are rising three times faster than those wages during the last four years of did you ever hear of this gentleman the Obama administration never hear of him more than two million Millennials have gotten jobs we have lifted ten million people off the welfare rolls and seven million people all for food sales and under the so-called Trump economy we are actually achieving the progress hope and change that Liberals have been falsely promising for decades but utterly failed to deliver or produce and it’s really driving them crazy that’s why we’ll probably end up with crazy Bernie crazy he’s crazy we got some beauties we got sleepy Joe we got crazy Bern we got mini Mike but I think he’s out of it I would like to spend 700 million dollars and end up with nothing mini Mike I know him well I knew that was going to happen that was probably the worst debate performance in the history of presidential debates the we agree is there ever been anything like [Applause] but he’s going to keep spending the money I think this weekend he’s gonna hear his dad stop on Tuesday he’s going for Thursday he’s gonna spend a lot of money it just shows you that you can’t buy an election I mean it just there’s a point at which people say you got to bring the goods a little bit too you got to bring the good why did Pocahontas destroy him I’ll tell you and look what I did to her she choked you know she went out and got a test because I was killing her with a poke remember I said I have more Indian blood in me then she does and I have none right so I said it love to have some but I have none [Applause] and she was getting hit with that name Pocahontas that was one of the good ones and they said we want you to apologize for that Damon I did I apologize nobody ever heard me apologize before I apologize to the real Pocahontas i father but she went out and she said artists guys killing me remember she was dropping like a rock but I learned something never do it too early to a year and a half before the election I said what am i doing I should have saved it but that’s all right he had those burning embers and then she started but ultimately she failed she’s gone soon but she was really mean to many Mike I’ll tell you the way she treated he didn’t know what hit him he’s going all get me off of this stage get me off [Applause] well thank you very much we hit a nerve there bad guy far-left radicals have become increasingly desperate and increasingly dangerous in their quest to transform America into a country you would not recognize a country in which they control every aspect of American life just as socialist and communist movements have done all over the world they’re cracking down on all dissent and demanding absolute conformity they want total control they want to massively raise your taxes barry ewen regulations take over American health care indoctrinate our children from kindergarten to college and you see that happening kids are coming home saying what’s going on here dad the kids get it but eventually they can be taught unfortunately impose a fanatical code of political correctness bombard our citizens with fake news propaganda and implement policies that would turn America very quickly into a large-scale Venezuela they want to take away your money take away your choice take away your speech take away your guns take away your religion take away your history take away your future and take away ultimately your freedom but we will never let them do that for many years the radical left’s sustained assault on American democracy culture institutions and values one unanswered but now we are fighting back and we are winning like never before we here we are winning you know there was a time I used to come to CPAC it didn’t have this kind of energy number when you didn’t have the president you know I was only gonna do this format once I said look I’m president I can’t go to CPAC right Matt I said I can’t do it if I did it we had a great time next day calls can you do it again next year I said yeah I guess he’s like my fourth time or something right or more or more and I’ll be here next year okay why not thank you from the moment I took the oath of office the left has pursued a relentless crusade to overturn the results of the 2016 election and sabotage our next election you know that was all a big hoax you know that disgraceful we caught the dirty cop on top and I not fired Comey would have been a whole different story I was a great firing I’d say a lot of people said oh you shouldn’t have done that no no no just the opposite we didn’t fire him remember the insurance policy right all right remember that my friend over there you are the greatest thank you very much stand up please okay does everybody know Jeffrey Jeffrey Lord what a great guy he [Applause] used to defend me on CNN and then he defended me just a little bit too much and they said Jeffrey get the hell out and thank goodness you’re on Fox now right he used to defend me he used to say he’s better than Ronald Reagan and that was enough for Jeffrey that was the end they get out of here Jeffrey we don’t want you anymore it was too good thank you thank you for being here – Jeffrey they’re coming after me and we fight back and now we’re going after them because we have no choice we have to straighten out our country but despite the best efforts of the left-wing fanatics their scams schemes slanders they’ve all been discredited totally discredited how scummy doing how is by the way how’s Bob Millar doing that was a great performance in Congress raise your right hand what did you want a job in the White House running the FBI uh no he did he did he did what happened to him that was a lie that was a lie we have it down he said no it was a lie he wanted a job he wanted to be director of the FBI and then they appointed him the following day into special counsel I call it special prosecutor because special prosecutor is a much more accurate name what they did to us what they tried to do and yet can you imagine with all of that going through all of that with a cloud over your head like nobody’s ever had for us to have seriously done more than any other administration I mean sort of America when you think sort of a miracle or it’s a toughness or it’s something maybe it’s right there thank you thank you God how did we do that how did we do it best economy greatest military greatest tax cuts in history greatest regulation cuts in history all those judges as beautiful judges two Supreme Court judges great ones but their sinister plots have been exposed and their credibility has been totally destroyed they’re still just dealing with the embers you know a little bit like Pocahontas she had those Emperor’s and she started coming up and that was the end but they have embers too they have embers they have a lot of bad people around but one by one with the help of everyone here today the American Dream is backed bigger better and stronger than ever before to lift up forgotten and impoverished communities we created nearly 9,000 opportunity zones all across our country Tim Scott senator Tim Scott was so good creating jobs opportunity and investment it’s now pouring into the places that needed that the most we have poor areas that haven’t had $0.10 invested in them in years and years and years and now millions of dollars are going in there we’re transforming their boards it’s incredible so incredible one of the it’s not talked about much by the media it’s one of the greatest things ever done in terms of economic development opportunities owns millions and millions of dollars of being poor and not being poured in by the federal government not being poured in by the federal government’s incredible thing we passed the largest package of tax cuts and reforms in American history larger than any before and it’s incredible you know all my life I’ve only been doing this for five years okay but all my life I’ve watched politics and it was always the guy that cut taxes you want to cut taxes the Democrats have a strange platform they don’t want a wall they want people to pour in they want to raise your taxes they say we want to raise taxes I’m trying to say is this like a good thing to campaign on they want to raise taxes right think of it they want to have sanctuary cities where you protect bad people in many cases the sanctuary cities and by the way we just won the big gains that you see they have a sanctuary city and they don’t do what we need for law enforcement we don’t have to pay them any of that money there’s billions of opinions and opinions Wow where did that come from where did that come from then 40 million American families are enjoying an average of 2200 dollars more in their pocket thanks to a beautiful thing that Republicans really don’t know about too much you know the Democrats like to take credit it’s called child tax credit we took that that was Ivanka Trump represents Ivanka Trump she wanted that so bad we’ve cut a record number of job-killing regulations because regulation is stealth taxation especially on the poor we have cut more regulations in this administration in three years than any administration has cut in four years in eight years or in one case longer than that you know that was good old FDR we’ve ended the war in American energy American energy was under siege and I’ll tell you what we don’t want to talk negatively but if for any reason any of these characters get in there you can forget I mean I don’t know how you’re gonna win Texas by the way I don’t know how you gonna win Pennsylvania by the way I don’t they want it they don’t want petroleum products other than that they’re wonderful right how about this character bado right paedo everyone thought remember II said I was born to run I was born he was born that was a disaster he said I was born anybody that says he was born to run he was born to do what I’m doing anybody that I don’t even say it now one it’s true no it’s so presumptuous I was born to run for president well then he came out against guns religion and oil and he comes from Texas and I said Abraham Lincoln couldn’t win in Texas without those whatever happened to beta they don’t come on back beta he was born to run for president he got down to less than 1% so many of those people are less than 1% how can you be less than 1% you got to be really bad the u.s. is now the number one producer of oil and natural gas in the entire world by far never again will our country be at the mercy of hostile foreign suppliers America has declared energy independence I declared it were energy independent big thing it’s a big deal for big deal you ever noticed in the Straits we always took care we never got 10 cents for it would keep those straight soap and nobody would dare mess around with all those countries that will making trillions and trillions and billions and billions we kept those straights open it was great Jeffrey it was beautiful what we did for these other countries they never paid us ten cents we kept him up and we’d go and shoot at other ships and would fight this one and fight Iran and I said do we ever get paid for anything right but now they’re saying you know when they were blowing up ships last year they were saying I’d love to get an American ship but they don’t send too many of them we don’t send too many of them over there you know why we have our own energy now it’s pretty good gone way down but you know who does get a lot of it 60 percent China and I’d say so let me ask you why are we keeping this Straits open for China and others but China gets tremendous amount percentage-wise tremendous so we keep it open for them I don’t know you had a lot of really nice people running our country over the years perhaps I’m not nice but I’m doing a great job for you [Applause] well yet every Democrat candidate wants to shut down American energy production how do you do that including oil natural gas clean coal and nuclear they like wind wind I won’t repeat it but last year the best line the whole thing was wind right darling I’d like to watch television I’m sorry Alice the winds not blowing you can’t watch the debate that was the best line I’m not gonna go through it now because it’d be I don’t like to be repetitive like sleepy Joe where says the same thing four different times well he’s got a bad habit ladies and gentlemen of Ohio it’s great to be with you Joe Joe you’re in Iowa that was seven times he’s done that I haven’t done it once and if I did you know what I’d walk off the stage because there’s nothing you could do to come back from that you can be you can be Winston Churchill he was a great great speaker Winston Churchill was pretty good right you could be Winston Churchill for the rest of the speech and the press doesn’t kill him you know he said the other night this was really a beauty sleep eat Joe he said guns have killed 150 million people an uncle and I’m watching I said here a great first lady she’s doing a great job I said first lady we’re great job you doing a great job very popular the great style great style loves our country greats her father’s here somewhere where’s Victor where is Victor father’s here today where’s Victor her father is here someplace he’s someplace in this aggressive room there he is hello victor her father great guy but I said to our great first lady first lady I like order firstly I love : the first lady she said it’s okay you can call me Melania good now see what I have fun like that you know what’s gonna happen tomorrow that’ll be a headline he calls her first lady because they’re dishonest people we can have fun remember this thing Russia if you’re listening remember it was a big thing in front of 25,000 people Russia view it was all set they cut it off right at the end so that you don’t end see the left or the joke and they said he is he asked for help right Russia if you listen a very famous they cut that thing so quick at the end cuz they didn’t want to hear the laughter in the place and me laughing it was just boom these are really dishonest people but but I said to her it’s true I said to her let me ask you this did he just say that we killed 150 million people that’s half of our population this is a terrible event we have to find out what’s going Lord this is bad this wasn’t reported by the fake news [Applause] so I said I’ve got to check that first lady because you know what if 150 million people were killed last year by guns and they didn’t report the story see they didn’t they didn’t report but you know what interestingly though so I said well his debate is dead it’s dead he’d nothing he can say at the end they said his debate was great he did a great job if I would have said that it would have been over you know it only takes one a little phrase for me like a little couple of words if you mispronounce a word you know with all I speak they say if he mispronounced the word da da he said that if you mispronounce da there’s something going on something wrong here’s the guy said they killed 150 million people with guns and nobody even talks about it but it is true he said a lot of times he blows it with you you know you could I don’t do it fortunately I don’t need it yet hopefully maybe someday I will but you know what you can do you write down the name of the state that you speak in and you put it up there and whatever you’re gonna say the word you look down I’m in Florida today funk I’m in Maryland I’m in Virginia man Iowa so they corrected him the one time he said Iowa and then they said no no Idaho [Applause] and he said I said didn’t I say that no he he thought they were the same now he’s gonna have I think a pretty big wind today I think based on the polls I don’t know how to handle does he have a big wind room can you imagine and I don’t know maybe we should do you know I did a poll last night right should I do that here am I allowed you promise you’re not going to charge me you know these pulses you know they’re the other ones like the Fox pollster is the worst of all but I don’t know Fox is good but the pollsters so bear Fox is good you know they’re okay but I put certain people on you know they have a good show and then they put these people to nevertrump resort at the end there’s nothing you can do to recover from that but you know the pollsters are very phony a lot of them some of it’s worse than the actual journalists and reporters and stories but last night I did it and in South Carolina it was incredible and we had would you say like Madison Square Garden almost right it was that they was packed thousands and thousands of people and we took a poll who would be my best person to run against nowhere to would I like who would I do best against okay to put it in very plain language who the hell would I beat the easiest right and I took a poll and I’ll tell you the results but let’s do it here right I mean this group is okay so Pocahontas we don’t have to waste our time with global char we don’t have to waste it right let’s leave let’s not waste a lot of time okay boo dead edge I don’t say it to me every time I look at that face I see Alfred E Newman its [Applause] salford E Alfred E Newman Mad Magazine see the problem is most of you are too young all these beautiful young women up here they don’t know what the hell I’m talking about but the old ones the ones with the white hair they know exactly laughing like hell but it’s true somebody said use Howdy Doody because everyone knows I said that I said that’s no good it’s got to be perfecto and Alfred he no miss perfecto but you’re gonna have to go back and get Mad Magazine which I guess is that a basis for a long time like most other magazines right but it was one of those things where I didn’t add his name then we went to mini Mike I said I don’t see it is sure we had his name I don’t see it he’s gonna have to spend a hell of a lot of money really fast cuz he’s getting killed in California he’s losing in Texas he’s losing all over the place how the hell’d you spend that much money and lose you know they had an article in of all places the New York Times and it had the amount of personal money not money erased personal money that somebody put out and how they did and they had they started off with Mike Bloomberg and I think he’s like at 500 million dollars 500 more than 500 l money he writes checks like a drunken sailor I can use that how much you think those consultants I know some of his people they’re bad people they are ripping him off he’s got a couple of people right at the top they are ripping him off they’ll laugh at all the way to the bank keep running Mike Mike keep running you’re gonna do it Mike it was another three four hundred million I guarantee you the presidency Mike now he’s looking I promise you five hundred million and I’m down at 10% what the hell are you doing to me why did you make me do this he says no but I know some of his people they are ripping him off like you never believed so I said till we put many Mike in there I don’t see it right no okay don’t see many of my people got wise still really fast didn’t take too long you know you still have to you can’t buy it chose something nice I mean assuming that happens I don’t they you can’t buy an election you really can’t buy and that’s a good thing not a bad thing that’s a good thing and there are a lot of campaign finance violations there there’s no way you can do what he’s doing you know you go into a town you give somebody a contribution two days later guy comes I’d like to support mini Mike Bloomberg and something strange with that whole yeah so we have two names we have one is crazy Bernie he’s crazy and we have these like a crazy professor and we have the other one is sleepy Joe Biden right so let’s take a poll just will go Biden first scream like hell if you think I should run against him right is that okay in other words because we’re gonna beat him who will we beat so scream like hell so sleepy Joe Biden [Music] [Applause] all right this is would you like me to run against him crazy Bernie Sanders can’t charge me you cannot charge me for that bats gonna send me a bill for them now think of it these pollsters you ever see this crap we interviewed 193 people one with the plus or minus 3 you have thousands of people each I got it for free but Mercedes will send me a bill I guarantee of it for a free Paul so look that happened last night – I did the same thing they think that crazy Bernie how could you be easier to beat than Joe yeah you know I can’t put two sentences together it’s insulting how can you be easier but you know he is more down the middle you know everyone know he’s not a communist right and with Bernie there’s a real question about that but he’s definitely a radical F socialist Democrat and people know that with Joe he sort of down the middle you know the difference is Joe’s not gonna be running the government he’s just going to be sitting in a home someplace and people are gonna be running it for him and they will be radical left socialist so that’s the way you have to remember he’s there’s no way he’s going to be running the government but we’re reversing decades of calamitous trade policies breaking up the unholy alliance of lobbyists globalist and special interests that bled our country bled our factories and bled our people dry we understand that conservative policies must conserve our jobs conserve our manufacturing and conserve our American Way of life what we’ve done for manufacturing look at all the manufacturing jobs is all coming back Obama said never happened never happened it would never happen as I said you can keep your doctor why didn’t they impeach him for saying that remember 28 times you can keep your doctor you can keep your plan it was a lie impeach him America lost one in four manufacturing jobs following the twin disasters of NAFTA and China’s entrance into the WTO the worst two deals ever made in now I say see with all the women humankind I used to say mankind it sounded sort of good now I say humankind I don’t use it that much right the women know what I’m talking about the women get it better than the men the women get it better they named me Time magazine Person of the Year right now let this year loss to Greta Greta I lost to Greta I said who I’m not gonna get involved in that kiss last time I got that a little trouble but I lost to Greta but doesn’t matter I’ve wanted you know enough I mean in all fairness when the whole world evolves around this person I don’t say good better but you turn on that stupid CNN you turn on msdn see you turn on Fox every story is Trump or Trump related right there’s no if a plane goes down with 700 people on it they don’t even cover it anymore that used to be a big event they don’t cover it anymore it’s really unfair but it’s been by the way have we all had a great time though this journey this journey has been amazing you know I tell the story a month before I ran I said to my wife well I’m thinking about it said to a cup but I’m thinking about it didn’t think too much about it I thought about it like a day before I ran but I remember seeing the New York Times that came to my office I held it up it was like a thing you hand out at a grocery store you know it would have blown away with a little wind but two miles an hour would have blown away that was the New York Times now it’s a vibrant paper but when I’m no longer here in five years or nine years 13 years 17 years 21 now they actually think I’m not leaving you know this is crazy Bill Maher Bill Maher you ever hear this guy he says you know he’s not leaving he has a guest some guests that didn’t have a clue and the guest he said you know Trump was gonna win you know that he’s going to win you know he’s going to win don’t you like its deficit Bill Maher said nut job you know he’s going to win and the guest says no no we’re gonna fight very hard we think we have a good chance with no no he’s going to win and then you know what he’s never leaving don’t you he’s never like no no he’s never leaving no no he’s got it work he will never leave there’s no way and I used to think he was kidding he’s not he is a total nut job this guy but under my administration the great betrayal of America is over it is no longer for sale last month we ended the NAFTA catastrophe and I signed the brand-new US Mexico Canada agreement into law great job the u.s. MCA is a gigantic victory for farmers ranchers manufacturers and workers all across our country and by the way speaking of farmers something they don’t know but they’re learning fast no more estate tax on your small farm small businesses small others no more estate tax people don’t talk about the big thing big provision big provision if you love your children it’s great if you don’t love your children it’s irrelevant don’t leave the money to him but you know in years gone by great farmers they have a good land good everything but they don’t make that much cash it’s a tough business right and the banks would come and loan money to the children and the banks would end up owning the property and all hell was going on it was terrible no more estate tax or as we call it death tax no more on small farms and small businesses great thing nobody talks about nobody talks about that but it’s a big thing if you love your children if you don’t does anybody here not love your children raise your hand please look it up not one hand well that’s conservative people they all love their children now there’s one hand in the back I’m not calling I also took the strongest ever action to confront China’s illicit trade practices you see what happened there and our strategy worked and we have a great relationship with China now we have a very good relationship they didn’t even respect us they were taking out five hundred billion dollars a year we had a trade imbalance we had a deficit of more than 500 billion with a B dollars a year can you believe that who the hell can sustain who wants to even talk about that so we started charging tariffs they hit our farmers I gave the farmers everything that they took at and the money came from China because it came out of the tariffs and we had a lot of money left over it okay sorry but not really complicated no other president ever thought of it and now the farmers love me and we ended up making a great deal but they loved me before you know the farmers when they go to CNN would go up is it terrible what President Trump is doing to you with the trade war he says no it’s hurting me badly but the trade war is necessary and it should have been done years ago everyone I’ve never heard anybody say different I’ve never heard anybody say different the farmers are unbelievable but I went to sonny Perdue our Secretary of Agriculture I said so let me ask you Chinese tough this smart they hit him how much did they take out last year 12 billion dollars how much did they take out this year 16 billion dollars that was last year I said 16 billion 12 bit and good we’re gonna give him back to 12 B and then we gave back to 16 everything they took out I said what was the best year they ever had with China it was 16 billion I said good I’ll give them I’ll reimburse him the 16 billion out of the tariffs that China’s paying and by the way you know China respects this just so you understand you know other other precedents knew that they were getting ripped off they didn’t know what to do about it they said they’ll attack our farmers our whole farmer all the farmers will go bust they didn’t know charge him tariffs pay him back and then keep a hell of a lot more money than you’re even giving to the farmers and we kept tens of billions of dollars and we made our first deal and Schumer went it’s terrible the deal he got he took the tariff said no nobody wanted tariffs until I taught them what tariffs are but it’s arable he once it took the tariffs out actually I didn’t they’re paying 25% on two hundred and fifty billion dollars I don’t even know how we pulled off that one but they’re paying but China’s great and now they want to negotiate phase two because they want to stop paying the 25 percent on two hundred and fifty billion dollars otherwise we have no leverage right we have no leverage but the farmers are the greatest and even before they knew I was going to be able to reimburse them all that money that was being taken out of their pockets they weird they said to me I had 25 farmers in the White House right in the Cabinet Room I used the Cabinet Room everybody else used it only for the cabinet I use it for everything but the cabinet now I use it for farmers we have beautiful it’s this incredible room right it’s incredible room and I said to the farmers I said you know I want to give you back money I want to give you a subsidy oh we don’t want the words they didn’t want everybody else they didn’t care what I used I could use subsidy I could use welfare I could use anywhere I wanted the farmers hated the word sepsis sir we don’t want anything we just want a level playing field it’s been this way for 20 years and it’s been it’s been absolutely hurting us they didn’t want anything and I said you know are you serious they said yeah we just want a level playing field nobody can beat us and it’s true nobody can be they want a level playing field and I said to myself can you imagine everybody that comes in countries other businesses everybody they want money the farmers don’t they just wanted a level playing field and that was at the bottom when they really were looking it was looking pretty bad but now China is going to be buying fifty billion dollars worth of product the most they ever remember got was 16 so they’re buying 50 we agreed to 20 and in the final day they were getting the agreements ready I said how much of the farmers getting meaning how much is China gotta purchase from our farm is 20 billion I said do me a favor make it 50/50 I said the farmers can’t do that much can they said no China said absolutely not I said look what does it mean you got 1.5 billion people what the hell difference between 20 billion and 50 it doesn’t mean anything they said you’re right we’ll give you a 50 is crazy it’s crazy my only problem is I don’t think the farmers can produce that much it’s going to be very good to be a farmer when that whole thing kicks in we understand that our first lady and highest and and we have to remember this when our first lady came out she said to me today say hello to everybody and she said that your first duty and your highest loyalty and this was coming right from her is to the American citizens and you really have to let the people know this is Milania told me this can she’s like giving me a history lesson our first lady is giving me a history our heart our highest loyalty to the American people I said okay that was pretty good thank you thank you very much I’ll tell her I’ll tell her that was a single best line in the whole speech nowhere has the American left more thoroughly violated this sacrosanct principle than on immigration illegal immigration cost American taxpayers hundreds and hundreds of billions of dollars a year funds that could be used to improve our schools roads hospitals and other vital services instead Democrats want to take even more of your money to give illegal aliens free health care free federal welfare free education they get treated better than they want to treat our military and our vets and it I stopped it but it’s crazy the Democrat party’s immigration policies empower bloodthirsty cartels that may murder and torture that smuggle and traffic innocent human beings that flood our communities with poisonous drugs the left’s immigration policies are not compassionate they’re heartless merciless and cruel countless Americans are killed every year by criminal aliens these are illegal aliens that come in and they are in many cases very bad people in Houston Texas an illegal alien was charged with the murder for killing a 75 year old grandmother in a home stabbing her with a vicious machete knife 13 times in the chest in Georgia and illegal alien was charged with murder for killing beheading and dismembering his neighbor yet despite these travesties the far-left supports deadly sanctuary cities where people like that get protection that released criminal alien predators into innocent communities rather than handing them over to our great heroes of ice I they take such abuse ice the toughest gangs in the world ms-13 they slice people up ice takes them out by the thousands nobody else wants that Jack the men over here don’t want that job I can tell you right now it’s tough and they love our country but they got to be tough last year California sanctuary law forced a single county to release over 1,000 convicted criminal aliens and nearly 240 have already been arrested and they’re looking for others and those are just the crimes that we know about Montgomery County Maryland announced a sanctuary policy last July since then at least 10 illegal immigrants have been arrested for sex crimes including the rape of an 11 year old girl in Seattle officials released a known ms3 think of this this was a known ms-13 gang member who later beat a 16-year old boy with a baseball bat and hacked him to death with a machete the list goes on and on and on and these people are protected by their sanctuary city fools in my State of the Union address I called on Congress to pass legislation allowing the victims of these deadly policies to sue these sanctuary cities for the pain anguish and suffering they inflict on our people everyone here today and patriotic citizens all across our land agree with a fundamental truth our country must be a sanctuary for law-abiding Americans not for criminal aliens the left’s crazy mansion is no borders no nations and no more deportations they don’t want to deport crazy Bernie said he’ll never do a deportation right remember what he said I better I better safe this stuff maybe you won’t get the nomination I don’t want us I won’t say that he said he what he thinks the Boston bombers right the Boston guys right he said they have the right to vote he said prisoners in prison have the right to vote they said does that include the Boston maniac that’s scheduled to die death penalty which is very good but does that include that he said yes he would get the right to vote you believe that that this guy would get the right to vote so I said I won’t use that until later on then I used it today at CPAC and now he’ll find a way of getting out of it and I won’t be able to use it against him in a campaign that’s no good see what I do here Matt that’s too bad too early I got to wait till about two months before the vote right right she’s going yes please wait except then you wouldn’t have enjoyed that but it’s true it’s true yeah it’s okay for him to vote it’s fine he could he killed many people badly maimed and wounded many people and he’s got the right to go can you believe that this is where we’ve come we believe in strong borders sovereign nations and the prompt deportation of anyone who illegally breaks into our country and thanks to our tireless efforts to secure the border we have reduced illegal crossings by a staggering 75% we have ended catch and release the worst of all the loophole we have seized a record amount of drugs and deported a record number of gang members we are building the powerful border wall were already up to a hundred and twenty eight miles of border wall and you think that was easy it’s being Ville and it’s being built to the highest standard you can build it you know just to show you again about the news so we’re building it and part of its desert its rough territory and very tough territory in many ways but the winds are blowing and they’re putting it up and it’s 30 feet high steel and concrete both and you have to be able to see through it very expensive it’s the ultimate wall in terms of what we went to Border Patrol they did study they hired people climbers what’s the hardest to climb the piece on top that’s called an anti climbin supposedly makes it harder who knows but I said do it another couple of bucks but we put up a wall and it was blowing 50 60 miles an hour in this territory the concrete was just poured it was soaking wet the wall came down and we end up with a big story troops wall gets blown over by the wind that’s what it is but I explained cuz when you have Twitter well you have so many millions of people all you have to do is say scam yeah we can get the word out now we we lifted it right back up and put it back and we held that sucker in place until the concrete’s right and they don’t like to report that it’s really you know that’s what we have to go through it’s a very sad situation another grave threat facing our country oh by the way on the wall so we’re up to over almost 130 miles of well think of that but I’ve been really amazing but think of it but then there’s all right so he’s building the wall you have to understand I had an entire party against me and a party that controls the house now we’re gonna take back the house we have to take lunatics from these lunatics we have to take back the house all right we have to pay no but think of that but so now they like to say all right so he’s building the wall but Mexico’s not paying for it yes they are actually you know what I mean right they are paying for it they’re paying for it oh they’re gonna die when I put in this what we’re gonna do but no they’re paying for and they’re okay with it because they understand that’s fair but no Mexico’s paying for it and it’s every bit it’s it’s better than the wall that was projected we’re doing it at a higher level we have so many gadgets on that wall you wouldn’t even believe it censors we have things remember they wanted drones they said he doesn’t need a wall these people all six years ago they wanted a wall and I tell people I made one big mistake I should have said I said it we will build a wall people went crazy look at you we’ve been doing this for years I could get elected twice over the wall can you believe this no no but look at it people go crazy but we just take a look we have a wall people want a wall and what are the two things no matter how technological we get with the computers and the airplanes and everything’s going to things that will never change a wall and a wheel right oh yeah Anna wall and if you come back a thousand years from now it’ll still be a wall in a wheel remember they used to say here is a need a wall we’ll give him my drone oh that’s great we could ever drone watching everybody pour across but the mistake I made I should have said we will not build the wall then they would have made me build the wall right I would had all the money I could have got I could have been so much easier instead had to go through years but we won all of those cases we they got sued by everybody we got sued by politicians that didn’t know they were politicians we had a lot of suits that we won we won all those suits another grave threat facing our country is the effort from Washington Democrats to completely demolish our health care system jeopardizing the health of millions of people while congressional Democrats embrace crazy Bernie’s socialist health care takeover we are defending America’s right to keep the doctor and the plan of your choice we are ending surprised medical building just happened we are imposing price transparency bigger than health care we are protecting our veterans and we will always protect patients with pre-existing conditions health care is a big big part of what we’re doing Democrats have declared their unlimited support for extreme late term abortion ripping babies straight from the mother’s womb right up until the very moment of birth and that is why I’ve asked Congress to prohibit late term abortion of babies because every child is a sacred gift from God thank you in my State of the Union address I also asked Congress to pass legislation providing 1 million American children access to school choice because no child should ever be trapped in a failing government school and with the help of many of the people in this room today we passed criminal justice reform to reduce recidivism and to help former inmates successfully rejoin society we are helping prisoners like you wouldn’t believe people that are in like Alice Johnson you saw Alice Johnson what she served 22 years made a phone call and she’s not trying to defend herself from the phone call 22 years she another 20 or so to go and we got her as she’s a great woman through our pledge to America’s workers employers are providing millions of marginalized workers with the skill they need to transition from government dependence to self-reliance that’s what we need and we need people to defend the rule of law we have confirmed a record number of judges who will interpret the Constitution as written that’ll be nice [Applause] and we have appointed our two great new Supreme Court justices as I said Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh as the radical left moves aggressively to curtail freedom of speech we are proudly defending free speech including our college campuses any college that refuses to respect your First Amendment rights now risk the loss of billions and billions of federal taxpayer dollars I [Applause] signed that a few months ago because these colleges they take our money and then they don’t let people speak so now they won’t take our money and I guess they could do whatever they want but they’re not going to get money it’s billions of dollars were talking about we’re also combating anti-semitism on college campuses we’re stopping the flow of taxpayer money to colleges and universities that support anti-semitic aid and we’ve invested nearly 2.2 trillion dollars to build up the unmatched strength of the United States military 2.2 trillion though and for the first time in over 70 years the air force being the last we created a new branch of the American armed forces called the space force together we have revitalized the values traditions and principles that have always defined American greatness citizens of every age race color and Creed are rejecting the left’s insanity and joining us in the fight to save this glorious nation and that’s what we’re doing we’re saving this nation every day our movement grows bigger bolder and broader and America’s future gets brighter brighter and brighter our movement is united by a towering spirit of patriotism a profound and abiding love for our fellow Americans and a deep reverence for the rights and liberties given to each of us by the hand of Almighty God we know that America is the greatest nation to ever exist we know that America is the strongest force for good in the history of the world and we know that America is the home of the toughest men and the strongest women ever to walk the face of the earth this is the home of our ancestors carved out of the wilderness the home of

forever for all of the soaring heights that we’ve reached we know that there are still more records to be shattered new summits to be scaled war triumphs to be realized and more amazing history just
