11:02 pm
and thank you for giving america a truly amazing person in mike pence. he's a great, great man and a great vice president. thank you, indiana, thank you. great. i'm thrilled to be back in this great state with thousands of hard working american patriots. we are here to celebrate our amazing achievements together. and by the way, how were those jobs numbers today? how were they? [cheering] president trump: how were they? and to make sure america's incredible comeback continues moving full speed ahead, in just four days, the people of indiana are going to send mike braun to the united states senate.
11:03 pm
so we can keep making america great again. thank you this election will decide whether we build on the extraordinary prosperity that we've unleashed, or whether we let the radical democrats take control of congress and take a giant wrecking ball to our economy and to our future. it's not going to happen. america now has the best economy in the history of our country. could you believe this? can you believe this? way ahead of schedule. and if i would have said that during the campaign where i spent a lot of days and nights with you, and i was with another special friend of ours, bobby knight, who's going to be speaking in a couple of minutes.
11:04 pm
[applause] the great bobby knight. but if i would have told you the kind of numbers that we've achieved, nobody would have believed it and they would not have let us get away with it but we would have gotten away with it anyway. we would have gotten away with it. it turned out we were underestimating as opposed to overestimating. in the last month alone, we added another 250,000 jobs and nearly 600,000 americans returned to the work force. nobody would believe it. we've created 4.5 million new jobs since the election. nobody would have believed that. the unemployment reality just the unemployment rate just fell to the lowest level in more
11:05 pm
than 50 years and more americans are working today than ever before. how about that? but how is that statistic? how is that statistic? of all statistics -- in the history of our country, think of this, more americans are working right now today in this country than have ever worked in this country before. that's going to be fun in the debate stage when we debate one of the lefties. they're going to be saying what a good job they're going to do by raising your taxes and we're going to say but we have more people working now than ever worked. you know, i think we're going to win that debate. african american, hispanic american, and asian american unemployment have all reached the lowest levels in the history of our country.
11:06 pm
and in case you haven't noticed, in the great state of indiana, we are putting our steel workers back to work at a level that nobody thought possible. one of the great stories, one of the great stories -- you know, we taxed all of the steel dumping from other countries that don't exactly have us in mind. and we taxed them at 25%, and guess what, our steel industry is one of the hottest industries in the country right now. it's expanding like crazy. and right here in indiana, steel dynamics has just announced a $75 million investment in columbia city and a $400 million investment in terre haute.
11:07 pm
you know that, right? a lot of money. and just three months ago, united states steel announced a $750 million investment in a place called gary, indiana. the fact is, after years of rebuilding other countries, we are finally rebuilding our country. it's about time. it's about time. [crowd chanting "u.s.a."] president trump: republicans passed a massive tax cut for working families and we will soon follow it up with another 10% tax cut for the middle
11:08 pm
class. under republican leadership, america is booming. america is thriving, and america is winning like never before because we are finally putting america first! [cheering] president trump: but if chuck schumer, nancy pelosi and the legendary maxine waters, if they take power, they will try to erase our gains and eradicate our progress. can't let that happen. the democrats want to raise your taxes. they want to restore job killing regulations. they want to shut down your
11:09 pm
steel mills, and that will happen. they want to take away your real healthcare and use socialism to turn america into venezuela, lovely place, lovely place. [crowd jeering] president trump: and democrats want to totally open borders. how do you like that sound? come on in! come on in, everybody, just come on. [crowd chanting "build that wall"] president trump: you're right. and we're building the wall. we've got $1.6 billion. we have another $1.6 billion. we have a third $1.6 billion coming, but we want to the build it quickly at one time. we don't want to do it piecemeal
11:10 pm
but it's started. it's doing well. we want the money now from the democrats. we need their votes. or, an easier way, elect more republicans, we don't need their vote. [cheering] president trump: the democrats want to invite caravan after caravan -- and you see we have more caravans forming. you do see that. gee, i wonder how that happens. i wonder how. i think they overplayed their hand on this one, folks. because between justice kavanaugh and the caravans, you people are energized.
11:11 pm
and they want these caravans for illegal aliens to flood into our country, overwhelming your schools, depleting your resources, and endangering your communities. republicans want strong borders, no drugs, no gangs, and we want no caravans, thank you. the choice in this election could not be more simple. a republican congress means more jobs and less crime. that's not bad. think of that, how beautiful. more jobs, less crime. how nice. how nice. but how do you get elected when you go, let's say, less crime, hey, folks, it's very simple. we got to stop the crime.
11:12 pm
we got to close up the borders. we want people to come into our country, but they have to come in legally and they have to come in through merit. they have to come in through merit. and by the way, at 3.7% unemployment, a 50-year low, we need people to come in because we have companies coming back into our country. some of them left years ago. and they're coming back into indiana and michigan and ohio and north carolina and south carolina and pennsylvania and florida and every state. they're pouring back in because, you know what, as two of the executives told me two days ago, we want to be where the action is. that's right. we have, now, the hottest
11:13 pm
economy in the world. when did you hear that last? so this tuesday, vote republican. we are thrilled to be joined tonight by an indiana legend, a man who's become a friend of mine, who truly knows what winning is all about, and i have to say this quick. sorry. it's bobby knight, he's the greatest, ok. but i have to tell you, i have to tell you -- so before i ran but my name was being thrown out. i get a call, great story. i get a call, and my secretary comes in. sir, do you know somebody named bobby knight? i said, well, i don't know him but i know of him, he's a great,
11:14 pm
great coach, if it's the same guy, but it's probably not. find out, they say, yes, sir, it's the coach. i said, let me check it. so you get a lot of crank calls so i figure -- 90% are crank calls. i pick up. hello, trump? this is bobby knight. i said, that's him. nobody could imitate that. nobody. he's bobby knight, and you got to run for president. i said, i'm thinking about it. it was the year before. i'm thinking about it. he said, you got to run, you'll do better, you're the only one that will turn the ship around, you got to run for president. i said, you know what, bobby, i am thinking about it seriously, and if you could, how about giving me your number and i'll call you if i decide to do it, especially when i come to campaign in a place called indiana, right? right? so i said, bobby, could you give
11:15 pm
me the number and he gives me the number. i write it down. bump, bump, bump, i write it down. and on my desk, i'm a hard worker, i'm doing deals all over the place before this whole political thing got started and i have two or three piles of stacks of paper, two or three feet high each. i write his number, i put it on the pile. a year or so goes by and now i'm running, i'm doing well. i never left centerstage. that means we never lost a debate, we never lost centerstage. some of the guys being pushed left, being pushed right. we never lost centerstage, right? [cheering] president trump: and i always said to the people running the debates, i want an odd number because i'm in center and i don't want an even number because two people are in center, right?
11:16 pm
but i never left centerstage and i'm doing well and i'm going and we had competition but it was fine and everything's -- and now i'm getting ready to come to a place called indiana and a friend of mine who's also a great friend of mike pence, calls me and said you're doing really well in indiana, you're going to blow anyone away but you ever know a guy named bobby knight? and i said, yeah, i mean, i don't know him but he called me about a year ago and he really wanted me to run. he said, if you could get bobby knight's endorsement, you would absolutely seal the great state of indiana. so i'm at my desk and i have these stacks -- honestly, there are thousands of pages. i can't even tell you. i had this massive desk because it keeps a lot of stuff.
11:17 pm
and there are thousands of pages. and i said, i hung up isaid, let -- and i said, i hung up i said, let me see if i can find his number. i remember i wrote it down, i put it over here. let me see if i can find his number and i go over here and i take stack number one, which is literally two or three feet up in the air. pages -- thousands. and i go, let me see. and i lift it in the middle. and there's this little index card and it says "bobby knight" and the phone number. the weirdest thing. the weirdest thing. and then i look up and i say, thank you, god, thank you. that was from god. it's amazing. i didn't look, i didn't thumb through -- i just lifted it up and there it was. it was the craziest thing. anyway, i called up bobby knight, ding, ding, ding. he picks up.
11:18 pm
i go, bobby, he says, i have been waiting for you to call. and that was the beginning of a great romance. it really was. he is a tough cookie and you know what, i just took out something. i said, let me -- look, we know he's a great coach. but we don't know how great a coach. bobby knight, as you know, he coached in a place called indiana. i won't ask you how it's doing since he left. i won't ask. but it's going to do well and i hear you have a very good coach. i do, i hear you have a very good coach now. is that true? i hear you have a very good coach. but he coached the u.s. olympic team, in 1984, won the gold medal. he won three ncaa titles at a place called the university of indiana. he was put in the hall of fame
11:19 pm
in 1991. bobby knight was the last coach to have an undefeated season and that surprises me. that surprises me. and i asked bobby, i just asked him, i said, why is that? how come -- you think with all -- you have some of these teams, they're great, guys leave as freshmen, they play in the nba, they're great. why? he said, no, you play so many games, if one guy has a little bit of a cold hand, you lose a game, or if one guy has a hot hand for a good team, you could lose the game. you know, you play a lot of games. that surprised me. the last coach to have an undefeated team. i told bobby, if you want, if you want, bobby, this has nothing to do with politics but it's interesting. i think most of you people like sports.
11:20 pm
you're indiana. you like basketball. i said if you want you can tell the larry bird story. i don't know if he likes me but i don't really care. i think larry bird was a great basketball player. do we agree? i think we agree. he has a great larry bird story. listen to this. bobby knight won 902 games. he's third all-time. this guy -- and i'll tell you, he could have gone years longer. he could have gone years longer. he is a tremendous guy. but he was with me before i started. he was with me literally right from the beginning and i'd like to ask the great bobby knight to come up. thank you. [cheering]
11:21 pm
coach knight: i want to thank all of you people from indiana because we won a hell of a lot of games with indiana playing. you know, there was a great president many years ago, harry truman. the american public got a little thing to let him know how much they appreciated him. it was something called, like,
11:22 pm
give them hell, harry, give them hell, harry. and i'd like you to join with me in saying something -- oh, he's already given them hell. [cheering] coach knight: i want you to join me in saying something else. just like they said it to harry truman, who was a great president, and so is he. and what i want you to say is very simply this -- go get 'em donald! one, two -- go get 'em donald. three!
11:23 pm
go get 'em donald! [crowd chanting "go get 'em donald"] coach knight: one thing i would have done, it takes great defense to win in basketball, great defense. i think i'd have had to wait on donald for a little while until he became a great defender. and that's what he's been. he's been a great defender of the united states of america. [cheering]
11:24 pm
[crowd chanting "u.s.a."] president trump: what a great guy, what a great guy. winner, he's a winner. we like winners, right? governor, we like winners. well, that's special. you know, don't tell bobby, but he left his pad up here and his pen.
11:25 pm
i'm going to keep it because i can sell it for a lot of money. [laughter] thank you, thank you very much. a lot of love, a lot of love in this room. a lot of love on this stage. we are honored to be joined tonight by many terrific indiana republicans, including a man who has done an incredible job, and it's not easy to follow mike pence. governor eric holcomb, you have done a great job, governor, thank you. thank you. great job. great job, eric. and a congressman who i've gotten to know and he has a great style. he is a gentleman, he's a champion. todd rokita, he's here.
11:26 pm
where is todd? great job, todd, thank you. thank you. and with us tonight are two terrific republican candidates. please get them in office, please go out and vote. they're terrific. jim beard and greg pence. does anybody know greg pence? thanks, thanks. thank you, fellas. thanks, greg. they have good genes in the pence family, don't they? if you don't want to be saying the words "speaker pelosi" for the next two years, you've got to go out and vote for greg and jim and a republican congress. we need it. it's going to be a very interesting day. tuesday is going to be a very interesting day. they're not going to beat the day from two years ago but it's going to be interesting nevertheless.
11:27 pm
was that a great time we had two years ago? [cheering] president trump: finally, i'm proud to introduce the next united states senator. i'll tell you, before i do, before i bring him up, i want to say that mike braun is not a career politician. he's a very successful businessman and a patriarch who will fight every single day for the people of indiana. he's a fighter. he's a winner. he's a very successful guy. he didn't need this. i didn't need it, either, by the way. but we're having fun. you know why? we're winning, we're winning. mike braun is tough on crime, great on jobs, and he will always support our wonderful vets, our military, and our law
11:28 pm
enforcement, our police. and a vote for mike's opponent, joe donnelley, is a vote to make crying chuck schumer the senate majority leader. we can't do that. a vote for any democrat this november is a vote to put the radical democrats in charge of the house, the senate, and every congressional committee that's not good for indiana. it's not good for our country. and according to the center for effective law making -- listen to this. you have to listen to this. this is very important. joe donnelley has been rated the least effective democrat in the united states senate. think of that, rated the least
11:29 pm
-- the least effective. that's why they call him sleeping joe. you got to get out -- just get out and vote. we don't have to do this. just get out and vote. joe donnelley voted against your tax cuts and he joined the democrat, bob, to vote against justice brett kavanaugh. and no man, nobody, was ever abused like then judge kavanaugh. nobody was ever abused. what they did to him, what the democrats did to him is a disgrace, but he's going to be on the bench. now he's going to be the united states supreme court along with justice gorsuch for many, many years. [cheering] donnelly voted to get everywhere to illegals and joined every
11:30 pm
other senate democrats to sponsor dianne feinstein's open border bill. you remember her, right? the people of indiana do not have a one-week memory cycle. the people of indiana have a 60 year memory cycle. was that horrible? did you leak it? right? john cornyn said, did you leak it? no. no. no. i don't think so. no, no, we didn't leak it. that was the worst body language. john cornyn. one simple question, did you leak it?
11:31 pm
and she choked. no, no. i don't think so. in other words, she leaked it. she leaked it. she leaked it. that was a disgrace, what we watched. right? what we watched up there. it is no surprise joe donnelly is holding a rally this weekend with barack. h obama. barack obama. [booing] i watched him speak today. he had a small crowd. they do not talk about that. they never talk about how big our crowds are. [cheering] i always say, when i get home to
11:32 pm
our first lady melania -- [cheering] people love the first lady. you think it is easy to be first lady when you are married to me? [laughter] people love our first lady. i always say, honey, let me ask you, how did the crowd looked -- crowd look tonight? they did it show it. -- didn't show it. i said, oh. she says the sound is amazing. [applause] in houston, we had 22,000 people in the arena and housings outside for ted cruz was doing well. you don't hear about it anymore. we have the rally. you haven't heard that anymore. he is doing great. mike is doing great. [cheers] maybe what i will do is ask the
11:33 pm
media to turn the camera and show the room. would you do that? they don't want to do that. they don't want to do that. [cheering] [crowd chanting u.s.a] they do not like to turn the camera. we had big crowds. centerstage, big crowds from the beginning. i thought the cameras were fixed
11:34 pm
and they couldn't turn. maybe it cannot turn because it has so much stuff are who knows and they would never turn it. then we had a couple of people who were noisy. they caused a problem and they were backed in a corner and the camera turned like a pretzel. that is when i realized. they wanted to make us look bad. when they had a little bit of a problem in a corner of the room, i had never seen a camera turn at that angle upside down and backwards. [cheers] what they can do with modern equipment. i said, the reason is the cameras cannot turn. we were wrong. obama gave a rally in front of a very small group of people today. in the rally, he talked about honesty, how we has to be honest. he said you can have your plan, you can have your doctor -- how
11:35 pm
many times has he said that? let's stay pleasant. right? let's stay pleasant. because we do not want to go back to the obama days of low wages, high unemployment, rising crime, open borders, less -- far left judges, oppressive regulations, horrible trade deals, disastrous foreign policy. look at the mess i inherited in north korea and look at how well we are doing now. [cheers] terrible health care. if you want prosperity for your family, safety for your children, and security for your country, vote for mike braun. mike, come on up. mike braun.
11:36 pm
come up, mike. [cheers] [applause] mike braun: never in my wildest dreams did i think i would be on a stage with the president of the united states, the vp, and bobby knight. [cheers] how can it get any better, only in america, only in indiana.
11:37 pm
[cheers] when i decided to do this 14 and a half months ago, -- [cheers] i never would have done it, would not have wasted my time if this man did not do what he did. [applause] my wife and family are over there but i will never forget the night i turned the tv off at a quarter after 2:00. i thought it would go later, went to bed, i only get five hours of sleep. the president gets by on less.
11:38 pm
but, i will never forget getting up the next morning and what i saw on the tv, president-elect trump -- [cheering] that is the reason i am here. if it had not happened, i would have hunkered down in southern indiana wondering how to survive. thank goodness. so, my opponent, who calls himself the hired help, i think you need to do more than that to deserve to be reelected. thank you. [cheers] he is the least effective democratic senator, sounds like retired help.
11:39 pm
[cheers] he takes all of his marching orders from chuck schumer. let's retire joe donnelly. thank you. [applause] [cheers] president trump: thank you, mike. very successful guy. he has done a great job and this is what he wants to do and he is going to be very successful at doing what you want to do, a lot of great things. i want to thank you. mike, we want to thank you for doing this because it is not easy. thank you, mike. [cheers]
11:40 pm
if democrats get the majority, one of their first projects will be the socialist takeover of american health care. the democrat plan would obliterate medicare and eliminate medicare advantage for more than 360,000 indiana seniors who totally depend on it. republicans will protect medicare for seniors who earned it and have paid for it. [cheers] and republicans will always protect patients with pre-existing conditions. [cheers] democrats plan to destroy health care and rating medicare to fund benefits for illegal immigrants. i'm sure you do not mind. does anybody mind? nobody minds. as we speak, democrats are
11:41 pm
openly encouraging millions of illegal aliens to violate our laws, overrun the borders, and bankrupt our country. that is what is going to end up. they want to sign a legal aliens -- illegal aliens up for free health care, free welfare, free education. but what do they really want? they want them to vote because they are going to vote for democrats. illegal immigration caused american taxpayers more than $100 billion every year, more than three times the entire state budget of indiana. we need to use our resources to help fellow americans who respect our laws, not a caravans -- not illegal caravans who break into our borders and break our laws. [cheers] democrat immigration policy is
11:42 pm
not only draining our treasury but threatens our communities. nearly 100% of heroine in the u.s. enters through the southern border, along with roughly 90% of the cocaine, the majority of methamphetamines, and a substantial portion of the ultra lethal fentanyl which is killing our youth all over the country. these drugs destroy the lives of hundreds of thousands of americans and 70,000 americans every year die from these drugs. last year alone, our brave ice officers arrested more than 137,000 criminal aliens. -- 127,000 criminal aliens. and they want to get rid of ice. can you imagine?
11:43 pm
[cheers] yes, democrats want to abolish ice. these are great patriots. these are great people. these are people that do a job that nobody in the room wants to do. i don't want to do it. they want to turn america into a giant sanctuary for violent predators and ms-13 killers. a blue wave would equal a crime wave. a red wave equals jobs and security. [cheering] republicans believe our country should be a sanctuary for law-abiding americans, not criminal aliens. republicans will always stand with the heroes of ice, border patrol, and law enforcement.
11:44 pm
border security is also a woman's issue. women want safe neighborhoods for their families, great schools and health care for the children, and they want criminals to be in jail or thrown the hell out of our country. [cheers] remember during the election, my election. they were saying, i do not think he is going to do well with women. i love women. they're the greatest. i like them much more than i like men. i love -- here is the thing. remember after we won, they said -- they did not know what was going on. they said he did unbelievably
11:45 pm
well with women. [cheering] now they are saying the same thing, but they say a weekly because they want to say it quickly, i do not think he will do well with women. but we tried this two years ago. we did so well. we will do well with women again because they want security. they want security. they do not want these people coming into our country. you saw the report. the caravan, more than 300 people have criminal records and have serious problems that we do not want to get involved with. we want people coming in, but they have to come in legally. i'm sorry.
