that career investigators at the fbi disagree with that decision, but the point is still very clinton, whether you think she's a role model or knots did destroy 33000 e-mails after they had been subpoenaed. how many people in this room could get away with defying a subpoena? she literally took a hammer to two of her blackberries and crush them. she was described by fbi director: be asked extremely careless with classified information and that no other normal person would do the things that she did. she has repeatedly lied to the american people about that over and over again, so these are two candidates folks, there is no one here that will win a character contest and it is really down to whose policies would be better for south dakota and on that issue there is-- in my mind hillary clinton would be terrible for south dakota would it comes to economic policies, two judges she would put on the court and these are the choices
we are left with. >> these are divisive times in our nation. are you optimistic or pessimistic about the future of these united states and regardless of the outcome of the presidential election and for the greater good, are you hopeful that the polarized american electric will accept and unite behind the president? >> as you probably can tell i am an optimist, sponsor optimistic about the united states of america, which i love and i think is the greatest country in the world. now, there is a lot of polarization and i think that's the crux of the problem that our congress has populated entirely with career path-- politicians. i am the opposite of that. i've never been elected to a political office, but i'm here offering myself to go to washington and try to change that gridlock that exists. i think that is the problem. its both sides the way we say it's my way or no way and that's
not a good thing. i'm not the holding to a political party. i'm not beholden to special interest groups such as large donors. on beholden to the voters of south dakota and i think if we can elect representatives like me we can address these problems and make the us better than it even is now in spite of the fact that if the grace country in the world. unfortunate, the republican president shall nominate as not agree with any of that. >> mr. thune. >> we are a great country made up of great people and with the right policies we can be even greater and i hope that when this election is said and done in the smoke clears in the dust settles we can work together and i will do that. i done that my entire time in office. i've stood up to presidents who i thought were trying to do things that were bad for south dakota. i've worked with presidents when i felt like they were doing things that were good for south dakota and that's what we need more of, people willing to build bridges and relationships and get results.
my whole career has been built around getting results for the people of south dakota. i chaired a committee called commerce science and transportation committee which has jurisdiction over played, trains, automobiles, internet technology and the ranking democrat on my committee, bill melton, join me last week in rapid city this is in the underground lab and we worked together to pass numerous bills through congress this last year and is because of the approach we bring. i think the commerce committee could be a model for a lot of the other committees in congress, but the fact of the matter is the challenges are two great and we have to work together for the good of the american people. i will do that. i always have and i will always put south dakota first. >> we ended this form with two-minute closing statements. in the past hour, we have discussed 24 different subjects. based on what you have expressed and what you have your report-- have heard your opponent express why should the voters of south dakota elect you to serve in the u.s. senate?
>> i like to thank you, jack, and the rotary club and senator thune as well for this spirited debates. on the fourth generation south dakota race on a farm. , u.s. navy veteran with service in the vietnam war. as a navy pilot i served in europe and the us. i'm a veteran of the peace corps and served in america after volunteering. i have a ba from the university of wisconsin and a master of science degree in computer science from northern illinois university. high-tech software janeiro work for texas intranets instruments in dallas texas. 30 years ago my wife carol, and i am our three children moved back to south dakota to start a business in the last 30 years i've been operating a business and serving my community in various ways.
on the school board i was president of our rotary club, so i know about rotary and i do love rotary and i think it's those traits, you can tell from my experience not a career politician, quite the opposite. i have a lot of background, so almost everyone i meet i could find some-- something in common with. that's the trait that allows me if elected to the washington to work with other people and to get things done. it's a real problem we have right now, this polarization in our country and i'm not beholding to the democratic party, circling up to the republican party, but in the 19 '90s i was a republican, so i'm the kind of guy who works with lots of different ideas and thoughts and i can work with people i work together and i think that's why november 8, you should vote for me and if you are early boarding boat for me as well. i appreciate the opportunity and look forward to another debate with senator thune tonight. thanks again. >> mr. thune.
>> thank you. thank you, jay, for the opportunity to discuss the issues. every election, in my opinion, is about the future. now, some of you have heard that i just had a granddaughter about five weeks ago and it makes you even more keenly aware of the things that we do come in the decisions we make them what they will do to shape the future that those kids and grandkids will live in. elections are also the differences and we have some very stark differences in how we approach issues. but, the one thing i will tell you is that we have big challenges facing this country on the economic front, do best front, national security. we will need a strong voice in washington dc. i have proven in the time i've been in office that i'm someone who knows how to get things done. as i mentioned, i chair the commerce science and transportation committee in congress and the senate answered on the finance committee which has jurisdiction over health care, taxes, trade, social security and on the agriculture
committee. i work on all those committees to put policies and legislation in place that are good for south dakota and gives you a lot of success. in this polarized toxic environment that everyone talks about and get past all the cable news anchors shouting at each other, we have chalked up wins for south dakota. we have passed the long-term highway bill in a decade. we have passed the first freight rail reforms in two decades. we have passed in the nation's security reforms for the first time in eight years. we passed pipeline safety belt. we passed technology bills all out of the commerce committee, all passed the house and sent to the president signed into law. we are getting results for the people of south dakota, but there is a lot more to do. this economy is sputtering, stagnant and we need faster growth, better paying jobs in our economy. we do things well here is south dakota thankfully to a lot of people in this room we need to take the same kind of common sense to washington dc and get
this country moving in a different direction. i'm asking for your vote on november 8. thank you. >> for their commitment and desire to serve our state and our nation, please join me and thinking the candidates, republican us senator thune and democratic us senate candidate five.

being done for the west midlands and part of that is cruciallyll the election of directly elected mayor and i think with hiss knowledge and his business experience he will drive economic growth.

minister counterparts are feeling the same sense of frustration as members of this house took the first minister from wales said there is a great deal of uncertainty, but they are clear they need full and unfettered access to the market. in the prime minister help the first minister wells and the others by giving us clarity? >> first of all, can i commendpo in response to the comments, can i commend the home i'm-- officeh for the work they are doing to ensure that they're looking for the best interest of the child refugees so they are provided- with the support they need when they come here to the united kingdom and can i also join him in committee my honorable friend from stanford are willing to be so open about the health problem he has and we wish him all the very best for the future and for his place in this house. in relation to the issue of clarity on the aims the

mr. speaker, it's would be also very helpful if the prime minister could provide some clarity over the northern ireland border. will we continue membership of the customs union or are we going to see border checks introduced between or northern ireland and the republic? >> the leader of the opposition tries to poke fun of the phrase of it brexit means brexit, but the whole point is this-- [shouting] >> brexit, this government that is listening to the voice of the british people. brexit means brexit and that means coming out of the european union. the gentleman seems to be frustrating people that-- in relation to the north and irish border a considerable amount of work was already going on withte
the irish government to look the issues around the common travel area. that work continues. we have been clear, thef government of the republican of ireland has been clear, but none of us want to see a return to the borders and i was simply remind the right honorable gentleman that the common travel area has been in place since 1923, which was well before either of us joined the european union. [shouting] >> on monday the prime minister said the customs union was that the binary choice. i can't raise other than a choice of whether you have a border or you don't have a border. there isn't a third way on that one. on monday, her friend honorable member expressed concern of the
aerospace industry while the british banking association said its members are poised quivering over the relocate button. every day the prime ministererdh dithers over this chaotic brexit , employers delay investment and there are rumors circulating about relocation. this cannot carry on until march of next year. when does the prime minister going to come up with a plan? >> i had to say the fact that he seems to confuse the customs union with the border when they are actually two different issues shows why it's important that it is this party that is a government and not his. he talks about the plan. had been very clear that we want to trade freely with-- trade with and operate within the single european market. i want this country to be a
global leader in free trade.labp i want to reintroduce control on free movement, so we have in free movement. the labour party wants to continue with free movement. i went to deliver on the will of the british people. he has tried to frustrate the will of the british people.an >> mr. speaker, there was no answer on the border, which was a question and on monday, mr. speaker, the prime minister told the house and i quote we have a plan which is not to set out at every stage of the negotiation the details. i've been thinking about this for a couple of days, mr. speaker. i think when you are searching for the real meaning and importance behind the prime minister's statement you have to consult the great philosophersh. took the only one i can come up with--
[shouting] >> , your self. calm yourself.ch is a gr >> who says our cunning plan is to have no plan. brexit was apparently about taking back control, but that you thought governments don't know the plan. businesses don't know the plan. a parliament doesn't know the plan.. when will the prime minister abandoned the brexit and develop a plan that delivers for the whole country?ghter] [shouting]>> i >> i'm interested-- was a member of the labour party.
[laughter] >> we are going to deliver on the boat of the british people. we are going to deliver the best possible deal pro trade in goods and services both with and operation within the european union and we are going to deliver and to free movement. that's what that reddish people want and that's what this government is going to deliver.e >> three years ago the united kingdom back to saudi arabia. on the 28th, of october, there are elections again for the human rights council. a un panel has warned a saudi arabia's bombing of yemen has violated international law and amnesty international saysecutie executions are on the increase. women are widely discriminated. torture is common and human rights organizations are banned, so will her government again be

dobby over when the issues we discussed with the importance of trying to find a political solution in yemen and seeing if it could be continued. it hasn't been continued, but wi are clear that the only solution that will work in yemen is to make sure we have that political solution that will give stability. >> mr. speaker, 20 years ago a conservative government agreed that christ church and councils could retain their sovereigntyie independence and control over their own destiny.

right to speak up for his constituents and he's also right that there isn't a single model, which is going to work every part of the country. that's why we believe it's important for local people to come together in determining what's right for them. i know my right honorable friend is trying to build a consensus as to the right way forward and i think it's right that people are able to respond to the consultation and their concerns listened to. >> the scottish poppy appeal is launched today for parliamentarians, so i take the opportunity that we will commend efforts to raise money for the poppies. .. where we expect to cease fire to end shortly and shawt --

issues looking for the way forward. i raised the issue of russian actions in syria come to theparc bombing of aleppo for the european union council at the end of last week. it was only on the agenda because the uk has raised it as result of that discussion the eu agreed that should the atrocities continue the we will look at all available options for taking action to put pressure on russia to stop the indiscriminate bombing of innocent civilians. >> i commend the prime minister are those endeavors but it's widely expected that the onslaught on aleppo will be unleashed by russian air power which is currently staying across the mediterranean aboard the admiral and its battle group. in recent years more than 60 russian naval vessels have refueled and resupplied in spanish ports. will be prime minister join me and eu and nato allies in unequivocally calling on spain
to refuse the refueling? >> the right honorable gentlemen refers to passage of russian naval ships and, of course, on the high seas they are able tor travel as they wish although of course when they went to the english channel they wereey werp accompanied by royal naval vessels as they went through. but what we have seen sadly is the russians are already able to unleash attacks on innocent civilians in syria. what matters is that we put pressure on russia to do what everybody agreed is the only way that we're going to resolve this issue, which is to been sure that we have a political transition in syria, and that's where we should focus our attention. >> thank you mr.

>> order. [inaudible conversations] >> on c-span2 rely at the champions of expo in springfield ohio. smack in the of the eighth congressional district. we are waiting to from donald trump to spend the day to day in ohio, 12 days away from election day. it should be getting underway shortly. we will have live here on c-span2 once it does start. want to let you know as well we are covering hillary clinton. she's on the road in north carolina today with michelle obama in winston-salem. that event at 2 p.m. eastern over on c-span once it gets underway. here on c-span2 donald trump coming up shortly. in ohio and after opening his new hotel in washington at a historic location, the top
international hotels at the old post office pavilion in the nation's capital. we will show you some of as wait for the rally in ohio to get started. >> hello, everyone. it's an honor to stand before you today and officially welcome you to trump international hotel and tower in washington, d.c. this has been an unforgettable year for my family for many reasons. as eric said our business at trump hotels continues to thrive in the last 12 months we have completed the redevelopment of trump national in miami, florida, come the iconic resort in scotland, and and this difficult international golf links in ireland. next month when opening a stunning hotel and residential tower in vancouver, canada. we've also launched our newest brand which will enable us to expand our quickly growing
footprint beyond five star of the luxury markets and locations such as this one. we have celebrated many milestones but the one that gathers us here today, the grand opening of the redeveloped old post office building is incredibly special to each member of my family, both personally and professionally. a renovation is much more complex than a ground up construction project and the redevelopment of the building we're standing and has been perhaps the most challenging and gratifying of them all. when this property was originally built in 1899 its grant you was meant to signal to the rest of the country that pennsylvania avenue was america's mainstream. a full city block and heart of washington, d.c., you didn't have to be a visionary to see the potential despite the fact that in recent years time has taken its toll on its national treasure. in 2011 the old post office was
considered the most sought after redevelopment opportunity in the country, and my father and i fought hard against the largest hotel companies and developers in the world to win the deal. over the course of eight months our team worked nonstop to study the building and strategize the best approach to restore its two with full potential, an and in some. after an exhaustive evaluation process we were ultimately awarded the deal by united states government. we were selected by a panel of judges based on criteria that included our vision for the property, the strength and experience of our development team, our companies financial wherewithal, our track record and a plan to bring vibrancy to pennsylvania avenue. one of the reasons i love real estate, a passion inherited from my father can is because at the end of the years of hard work there exists a tangible validation of your efforts and the efforts of so many people. ..
involved in the design, construction, and now the operation of this project. made it a point of personal pride to be extra precise in their work to be sure it was completed to an extremely high standard. my brothers and i included. a good sign, sign of a good leader, is how hard his or her team works when the boss is not there. my father's team has worked very, very hard on this building, and we're standing here today, it's evident, of that tremendous effort. including the historic clock
tower, which still houses our nation's bells of congress, the old post office is the second tallest building in washington, dc after the monument. behind the facade is the city's largest luxury ballroom and within the building itself the guests will discover the most spacious suites in the district. we have painstakingly preserved original architectural elements like the stone cashings and granite facade, extraordinary mill work on the wood doors and the marble wainscoting. a few weeks ago i met a contractor on site who was wearing a trump shirt. he was very proud to tell me he helped my father build trump tower in new york city 15 years ago. as a daughter, this political
season has been one of the most interesting journeys of my life. publish, but each day if a a heard critics against my father's business but one of the most telling sign's his skis e success is the thousands of people who have worked with him, worked for him, fought with them, and who continue to stand by his side, in their quest to achieve great things. when this property was put out to bid, congressman john micah, chairman of the house oversight committee, held a press conference in the vacant building. it was without heat and in the freezing cold heed a machine issued the crowd about government excess and noted the old post solves was losing the government between $8 million and $6 million a year. at a committee hearing following our soft opening last month. congressman micah said that trump international hotel washington, dc is now creating
hundreds of jobs, and is a stellar example of turning underutilized federal properties around with the help of the private sector. win we againsted construction and at the groundbreaking ceremony i pledged my family's commitment to the project and ensuring its successful congratulations. i told you that we would not disappoint you, and that we would never let you down. today is a celebration, not just of meeting but exceeding those goals. this achievement wouldn't be possible without our extraordinary team at the trump organization. thank you all for the design and preservation,, a, a architects for their tremendous contribution to the process and also like to thank me many elected officials and staff members of the federal and d.c. government who i've had the
opportunity to work with so closely, including the general services administration, national park service, commission of fine arts, national capital planning commission, d.c. mayor's office, fire department, the police deposit, -- department and the historic preservation office. additionally i'd also like to extend a special thank you to congresswoman eleanor holmes- norman. the most -- a great partner over the last five years and someone i have great respect for and have thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyed getting to know. finally, thank you to my father, who took a few hours away from his grueling schedule on the campaign trail to be here today. years ago, when we promised the city of d.c. that trump would be coming to pennsylvania avenue in 2016 we had no idea what we were
foreshadowing. this is an important moment for our family and our company, and it wouldn't be possible without the hard work and support of this visionary man. so without further adieu, let me introduce my father, donald j. trump. thank you. [applause] >> thank you, everybody. i appreciate it. thank you, melania, stephanie, laura, thank you very much. we were very proud of our company. we built one of the great real estate companies of the world. but it seems very insignificant compared to what we're doing now, and as soon as we're finished cutting the ribbon, i'm off to north carolina, new hampshire, and back down to florida. right here we're doing very
well. with the notable exception of 1600 pennsylvania avenue, this is the most coveted piece of real estate in washington, dc, the best location. i'm honored to be here today to support my family and especially my daughter, ivanka, for her dedication to this project. she worked so hard. i'm also honored to have a chance to thank the incredible team of people who brought our vision for washington's historic old post office to life, including hundreds of construction workers, electricians, maintenance workers and so many others who helped make this project a reality. they're really the important ones. a project like this demonstrates what is possible when a team works together for a totally common purpose. it also shows how to work with our government and to get things done.
my theme today is five words. underbudget and ahead of schedule. that what we do. underbudget and ahead of schedule. [applause] >> so important. we don't hear those words too often in government but you will. our agreement with the government required completion of the project by 2018. we were dramatically ahead of schedule on this project, and underbudget. we turned a property that has been neglected for decades and which was losing huge sums of money for the federal government, into a major revenue producer and job creator. this is what i want to do for our country, and this is what we're working so hard to do. right now, just about everything our government touches is broken or they break it.
it's always overbudget, behind schedule, and simply nothing works. look at the veterans administration, where new hospitals could 00ths of millions of dollars overbudget. and yet our brave veterans still don't get anywhere near the kind of care they need or deserve. look at our decaying infrastructure. our aging military equipment, our military is so depleted. despite having the greatest people on earth. i mean, they are the greatest people in our military, but it's so depleted. the tax code is broken. the education system is broken. we spend the most for any of any country on education and get bad results, and so many parts of our country are in a state of disrepair, and now it was just announced yesterday that obamacare is in freefall, with
premiums going up massively and places like the great state of arizona, going up over 100% in cost. unaffordable, unusable, and doesn't work even if you can afford it. the american people know what this election is about, and they see it every time they get their healthcare bills in the mail box or ride down a highway that is broken or go to an airport that looks like it's from a third world country. remember hillary said herself, it was called, hillarycare before it was called obamacare. she made that statement not too long ago and now trying to withdraw that statement. wants to withdraw that so badly, newt. by the way, congratulations on last night. an amazing interview. an amazing interview.
we don't play games, newt, right? we don't play games. i love my life and business and loved getting to share my dreams with my family. it's an incredible family and melania, i want to thank you very much. you have been -- [applause] my job is to look at undeveloped spaces and imagine what they could be. these are paces -- spaces that have no hope, no future, but you need imagination and you need the ability to get them done, and to unlock their potential and unlock the potential of the people working on those spaces and on those projects, and we have so many things we can do for our country. where others have only dead-ended i've dreamed of the amazing possibilities that we have. that's why government has turned to me in the past to fix projects that had gone in where,
that were considered total disasters, whether it's turning a landfill, after many, many years, of futile work, into bronx, new york, into a world class golf course that is now open and doing unbelievable business. or revitalizing the facade of the great grand central terminal, or billing and saving the rink in central park, after eight years of futility and spending massive amounts of money and getting it done in four months for a very small amount of money. so many different things. today is a metaphor for what we can accomplish for this country. same thing. this building is a historical landmark, a true american original. it had all of the ingredients of greatness but had been neglected and left to deteriorate for many, many decades. it sat there so beautiful and so
empty, and was falling into a very, very bad state of condition. it had the foundation for success all of the elements were here, our job was too restore its former glory, honor is heritage and also to imagine a brand new and exciting vision for the future. to create a new place for people and families to come together and a magnificent place at that. i've been very lucky and led a great life. now i want to give back to the country which i love so much and has been so good to me. i want to go into the inner cities can the poor rural communities and failing schools and work on a national plan of revitalization. i'm tired of the excuses from our politicians. i'm tired of being told what cannot be done. i'm tired of people asking americans to defer their dreams
to another day but really what they mean is to another decade. enough waiting. the time is now. we can achieve our goals for this country and we can do so more quickly than anyone ever thought possible. there is nothing we cannot accomplish. the united states is great. it's great. its people are great. there is no task or project too great. there's no dream outside of our reach. don't ever let anyone tell you it can't be done. the future lies with the dreamers north the cynics and the critics. everywhere i go in this country all i see is untapped potential waiting to be set free. and the biggest element of all is our incredible people, the people of this country. they're just waiting. they're waiting and waiting, and
i think maybe now their time has come. but we will realize that the potential we can continue to put in our faith and the faith of our country, and we have to say the word "never" will always have to be taken out because we have such tremendous potential. we have to choose the most optimistic path. we have to choose to believe not our politicians, that in many cases truly don't know what they're doing, but to believe in ourselves and in our country. if we do that, anything is possible. i'm asking america to join me in dreaming big and bold and dream for wonderful things in our future. let's close the history books on the failures ins into open a new chapter of success and
prosperity for all of our people. we have a divided nation. a seriously divided nation. all of our people. that is how we will truly make america great again. thank you very much. i greatly appreciate it. [applause] >> so, we're now going to the lobby. i want to thank in particular now the employees, the construction workers and all of the people that work so hard to make trump international a reality.
this will be one of the great hotels anywhere in world. i want in particular to congratulate ivanka because this what her baby, and she worked so closely with the gsa, great, great professionals, the gsa people are amazing professionals and work long and hard for years, and this is the culmination. so, ivanka, congratulations, and melania for putting up with the time and all this effort, and we're going to now be cutting a ribbon, and maybe what we'll do is have some of the folks -- why don't you bring them up. come on stage. they're so beautiful. never seen scissors that look this beautiful before. that's great. that beautiful. and thank you to the employees. it's all about service, all
about loving what you do, so many of them have come up and thanked me. they now have long-term jobs. many, many jobs, and long-term jobs, and we're going to -- we're looking to make this one of the great hotels of the country but it's going to we one the great hotels of the world. we have the finest location, and we have the finest building, building built in 1899. and that was when this was a very, very powerful, rich country, when money was no object. they built the post office with big, big dollars. and the walls are sometimes -- you can take a look and see them -- some of the exterior walls are five feet thick. it's really quite a place and we're honored to have been given the opportunity. so, this is for many, many years of success, many, many years of great jobs, and i just want to
>> all right. ready? many, many years of including happiness and everything else. one, two, three.

as he becomes president he's going to repeal and replace obamacare. we just found out the premiums have gone up 20% on average around the country, they've gone up here in ohio. they've gone up 53% in pennsylvania. 116% in arizona. we need to repeal and replace obamacare. mr. trump will do that. mr. trump is also going to end the resolving door between special interests and government, and that's how we are going to drain the swamp. it's that time. mr. trump is ready to come on. thank you for giving me your attention and don't forget. go vote. we love trump, we love trump. >> we love trump, we love trump, we love trump. we love trump.
oh, wow. thank you very much. thank you. unbelievable. people don't know, i worked in ohio. did you know that? and i had a great experience. and if i didn't have a great experience starting out when i was very young, marsh i wouldn't be here right now. -- maybe i wouldn't be here right now. who knows in 12 days we're going to win ohio and we're going to win back the white house. a brand new poll from remington research, highly respected, has just a few minutes ago come out and in ohio, we are right now four points up.
early voting is underway so make sure. get out and vote. we don't want to give this away. we have a movement going on like they've never seen before in this country. drain the swamp. got to drain the swamp sign back there. going to drain the swamp. believe me. but this is a movement like they've never seen in this country before and every place is packed and the greatest people on earth and we're going to turn our country around fast. 75% of the people think our country is headed in the wrong direction. we know it's headed in the wrong direction. we're going to fix it. we're going to take our country back and it's going to be put, very quickly, on the right track. [cheering] real change begins with immediately repealing and replacing obamacare.
it's just been announced americans are going to experience another massive double digit hike in obamacare. you see that. including premiums like in the great state of arizona, where they're going to go up at 116%. don't worry. you'll be there very soon. unless i win in which case you won't have to worry about it. even bill clinton admitted that obamacare is, quote, the craziest thing in the world. where people wind up paying their premiums which double, and their coverage is cut in half. job killing. job-killing obamacare is just one more way the system is rigged. remember the name jonathan
gruber, the architect of obamacare? he said they could pass obamacare, when he didn't know he was being recorded, they could pass obamacare because the stupidity of the american voter will allow it to take place. the only stupidity was that incredible stupidity shown by our politicians when they forced this bill through, over the furious objections to many politicians, in all fairness. many, many politicians, but really, the american people. and it was very, very sad. and in all fairness to the democrats, had our president not lied 28 times -- remember, you can keep your plan, keep your doctor? it passed by this much. they would not have gone for it. but they believed him, too. like everybody else believed him. they caught him in a lot of lies lately, folks. hillary clinton -- talking about liars -- wants to double done --
big liar -- hillary clinton wants to double down on obamacare and make it even worse. so here, i'm going to repeal it, replace it. we're going to have a replacement that is so much less expensive and so much better. you don't even get to use obamacare because the deductible is so high, and it's just -- look, it is so out of control. you'll never get to use it. $4,000, $5,000 before you can start taking. just this. and just happened. hillary clinton declared that obamacare -- do you remember this -- one of the greatest accomplishments of president obama, of the democratic party and of our country, a total disaster. here in ohio, another five insurance companies are dropping out of obamacare.
good luck. good luck in negotiations, folks. that means all the residents covered by plans from these companies will be getting cancellation notices very soon. obamacare is really -- you know this -- a catastrophic event. for ohio workers, and is making it impossible for many parents to pay their bills, support their families or get quality medical care to their children. repealing obamacare is one of the single most important reasons we must win on november 8th. have to win. real change, also means getting rid of the corruption in washington, dc. hillary clinton bleached and
deleted 33,000 e-mails, lied to congress under oath, made 13 phone calls -- i mean 13 phones, made them disappear. sometimes with a hammer, right? boom. boom. let's get rid of these phones. and then told the fbi she couldn't remember 39 different times. the clinton crew gave more than $675,000 to the wife of the deputy director of the fbi and the man who was overseeing the investigation into hillary's illegal server, a server we now know obama knew about. found that out yesterday. wikileaks. the more e-mails wikileaks releases the more lines between the clinton foundation, the
secretary of state's office and the clinton's personal finances, they all get blurred. today we read about clinton confident, doug brand, bragging he funneled tens of millions of dollars to bill clinton inc. through the foundation donations, paid speaks and cob assaulting contracts. he called the arrangement unorthodox. the rest of it -- the rest of us call it corrupt. in fact the clinton foundation, even hired a law firm to find out if their pay to play scheme would jeopardize their charitiable status with the irs. if the clintons were willing to play this fast and loose with their enterprise, when they weren't in the white house, just imagine what they'll do given the chance to once again control the oval office. and we have had enough. think we have had enough of the
clintons in all fairness. don't you think? i've had enough. at what point do we say it? hillary clinton is the most corrupt person ever to seek the office of the president. i propose a contract with the american voters that will end the corruption and give the government back to the people. i want the entire corrupt washington establishment to hear and to heed the words i'm about to say. if we win on november 8th, -- when -- okay. okay. when we win on november 8th. [cheering] we don't want to take it for granted but we are winning in a
lot of states. have to tell you. the media now, they're going wild. the media is going wild because they're saying, you know, that's guy's winning. in florida, he's winning in north carolina, he's winning in iowa. he's winning in ohio. all right. when we win, right? we are going to washington, dc and we are going to drain the swamp. a lot of spirit in this room. this is a good one. that includes the constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of congress.
at the core of my contract is my economic plan. that plan can be summarized in three very beautiful words, especially for the people in this area and this room. jobs, jobs, jobs. it's terrible what happened to this area, what happened to this country with jobs is terrible. hillary clinton promised to bring upstate new york 200,000 jobs when she ran for senate. and instead the jobs left. they didn't come in. they left. she has been there for 30 years and hasn't fixed anything. she is just made things worse except for herself and her husband. 47 million americans are on food stamps stamps and 45 million americans live in poverty. nearly one in four americans, in their prime earning years, are
not working or able to work. 70 million american women and children are in poverty or the brink of poverty and nearly half of african-american children under the age of six are living in abject poverty. our national debt has doubled in eight years. and our infrastructure throughout our country is crumbling. bad shape. our airports, our roads, our bridges, our tunnels, our schools, our hospitals. our trade deficit with the world is now nearly $800 billion a year. we are living through the greatest jobs theft in the history of the world. think of it. and that's so true. the single greatest job theft in the history of the world. what our politicians have allowed to happen to this area but to all areas of our country,
nafta, tpp, they want to approve. a disaster. ohio has lost one in four manufacturing jobs since nafta. a deal signed by bill clinton and supported strongly by hillary. remember, every time you see a closed factory or wiped out community in ohio, it was essentially caused by the clintons. itself was nafta, caused bev the clintons? why a deal like that was allowed? we've lost 70,000 factories. think of that one. 70. i tell everybody. it's a typo. can't be 70,000. it is. we've lost 70,000 factories since china ended the world trade organization. another bill and hillary backed disaster. just this year, eaton corporation in ohio closed its
plant, laid off 152 workers and moved their jobs to mexico. and you have had many -- i could name them all day long. under my contract, if a company wants to fire their workers, move to mexico, or other countries, and ship their products back into the united states, we will put a 35% tariff on those products. and, folks, just in case you have any questions, when that happens you're not losing your companies anymore, and if you do at least the country is going to make a lot of money. okay? we will immediately begin renegotiating nafta. and if we don't get the deal we want -- right now it's a one-way highway -- we lose our jobs, we lose our companies, we lose everything. we lose or cash. they get the cash, they get the
jobs, they get the companies, we get the drugs, we get the unemployment. that's all we get. we get nothing. we get less than nothing. we will terminate nafta and get a better deal for our workers if we can't renegotiate it properly we'll get a better deal for our workers and companies because we cannot continue to be the people led by stupid people. we can't. we can't. as part of our plan to bring back american jobs we'll lower taxes on our businesses from 35% down to 15%. we will also cut taxes for middle class families by 35%. and massively simply identify taxes for all americans. we will we -- be a rich nation once again.
but to be a rich country we must also be a safe country. hillary clinton unleashed isis on to the world. you know that story. and spreading violently -- it's spreading now into the united states. there are now 1,000 open isis investigations in the united states. isis is on a campaign of genocide against christians the middle east or what they call the nation of the cross. okay? the nation of the cross. they are crucifying, drowning, and beheading their victims. this is something that we would read about in history books. and not since medieval times have you heard the beheadings and all of the things happening. so we have no choice. we will stop isis and we will stop them fast.
and unlike what they've done in mosul, which is turning out to be very rick, we're not giving three and four months notice we're coming in. we're coming in. you think general george patton would say we're coming in, in three or four months, get ready? what a bunch. they're throwing people off buildings, hanging their victims from meat hooks. the "new york post" just published reports about isis crushing christian to death and burning adults alive. now hillary wants massive immigration from the most dangerous regions of the world, where isis operates, including a 550% increase in syrian refugees over and above the thousands and thousands that president obama is taking. we don't want isis in our country.
the hillary refugee plan would leave us with generations of terrorism, radicalism and extremism, inside of our shores. i only want to admit people who will support this country and love its people. so important. keeping our families safe is the highest obligation of the president of the united states. a trump administration is going to suspend immigration from terror-prone regions and we will suspend the syrian refugee program. that was easy. we're not going to take the risk when it comes to the safety of the american people. no longer. so let me state this as clearly as i can. if i'm elected president, i am going to keep radical islamic terrorists the hell out of our
country. [chanting] u.s.a., u.s.a., u.s.a., u.s.a., u.s.a., u.s.a., u.s.a., u.s.a. >> hillary also said she wants totally open borders. no one who supports oborders can ever serve as president of the united states. totally open borders. a trump administration will also secure the borders of the united states and, yes, we will build a
wall. have to. we have to. [chanting] build a wall, build that wall, build that wall >> and who is going to pay for the wall? >> look, 100%, mexico, in terms off our trade deficit, is making a fortune off the united states. their leaders are doing a much smarter job. but you know what? we'll be happy with mexico, mexico's going to be wonderful, we'll have a great relationship with mexico and with china and with other -- we don't even have good relationships now. they rip us off and we still don't get along.
at least they should be nice to us. they're not even nice. they'll be nice. thousands of americans have been killed by illegal immigrants. right here in ohio, 60-year-old was murdered in cold blood by an illegal immigrant. earlier that day the killer shot another worm in the arm while she was with her children in a nearby park. police encountered a man more than three weeks with the crime spree but federal authorities refused to take him into custody even though people were saying, please, please, don't let him out. please take him in. then there is the case of 90-year-old earl olander. a fortunate farmer who was brutally beaten by illegal immigrants and led to bleed to death in his home. earl's body was found with his hands bound behind his back and duct taped.
a brent force injury to hi head. his killers had criminal reports but did not meet the obama administration's priorities for removal. but others that knew him and others that knew them, were pleading, were pleading, don't let them out. don't let them in our society. i have a message for the cartels, the drug dealers and the gang members. when i win, your long -- of crime and here will come to a bush crashing end. we will also repeal obama-clinton defense cuts and rebuild our badly depleted military.
our air force is the smallest and oldest it's ever been. did you know that? i know what you have here. you guys are good with wright patterson, right? what a great place. but we're very depleted. we have old equipment. we'll bill brand new, modern, state-of-the-art planes to fly right at wright patterson air force base. we have a lot of veterans here today. want too thank them for their service and let them know as president, i have your back. ...
through the middle east into total turmoil. we are spending $6 trillion on wars in the middle east while our own country falls into total disrepair and now hillary wants to start a shooting war in syria with a nuclear power russia, which could lead to world war iii and the way she talks about vladimir putin, she is always saying wikileaks, it's russia and donald trump. i have nothing to do with russia, folks. maybe donald trump is involved with the russians and the answer is no, but she says donald trump and russia-- look, she speaks so badly of vladimir putin, nick and their country speaks so badly. she uses it to try to get votes
and i say to myself, how do you speak so badly of someone, i mean, how are they ever going to get along? wouldn't it be great if we actually got along with russia and other countries and together went after isis and knocked the hell out of them? would've never be a good thing? they want to get them out also, but she speaks very badly of vladimir putin and i don't think that is smart. you can be tough, but she should not do what she's doing and has her own team has said in wikileaks she had terrible instincts. to all americans i say it's time for new leadership. it really is time. it really is. can you imagine four more years of obama? that's what you get. is high taxes, high regulations and all these companies cannot even breathe with that
regulations, unnecessary. its isis all over the place at. she says will stop isis. let me tell you, there was no isis during her term she created with obama a vacuum in iraq. isis informed and obama called them the jv, junior varsity; right? well, they are not the jv anymore, folks. they will be in-- we will not them so hard. they're not the jv and they were not them and now they are in a 32 different countries and she is saying we will get rid of isis. she wants to go back home and go to sleep. that's what she wants. did you see where she got upset yesterday because i took two hours to cut a ribbon to make sure my kids did a good job. we built the building, by the way, under budget and ahead of schedule. [cheers and applause] >> she's a donald trump got off the campaign trail. i mean, i have been doing six,
seven, eight things a day every single day. she's home sleeping half the time. i say she is definitely a low-energy person. i say where is hillary? a lot-- watch doctor the last debate and up to the second debate she was tired. wow. she walked off that stage-- well, she had a lot of people around. they had a lot of people around her, which was smart. everything will change in november. just a think about what we can accomplish in the first 100 days. [cheers and applause] >> we will have the biggest tax cut since ronald reagan. we are going to eliminate every unnecessary job killing regulation. [cheers and applause] >> we are going to provide school choice and put an end to common core.
[cheers and applause] >> we are going to rebuild our military and take care of our veterans. we will support the truly great men and women of law enforcement [cheers and applause] >> we are going to save our second amendment, which is under siege. [cheers and applause] >> we will appoint justices to the united states supreme court who will uphold and defend the constitution of the united states. americans are tired of being told by politicians that they have to defer their dreams to another day, but they really mean another decade. it's like our policy in time, we keep electing the same people over and over again. clinton, clinton, clinton, that
impeachment, the lying, the whole thing. we are going to keep, make the same mistakes if you keep doing that and we are going to continue to hear the same old excuses. these career politicians keep telling us that things can change, that we can't find new solutions. that's basically what they tell us. i have a message for them, the future belongs to the dreamers, not the cynics or the critics. i'm asking all americans to join me in dreaming big and bold things were out future. i will fight for every american of every background in every stretch of this nation. i'm going to fight to liberate our citizens from violence and poverty and crime and fear and i'm going to fight
