we're protecting american workers, taking care of our amazing veterans. you know, the veterans, for years, i was a civilian, i loved my life. it was so much simpler. it was so nice and soft and easy. you build a building and have fun. i would always see that you turn on the news and read in the paper about our veterans being mistreated. they were doing such a poor job. you don't hear that anymore. out veterans, for the first time, are taken care of to a level that has never happened in our country before. maybe most importantly right now

with the world the way it is we are rebuilding the awesome power of the united states military. $2.5 trillion and everything is made in the great u.s. of a. a few weeks ago, u.s. special forces brought the world's number one terrorist to justice. the bloodthirsty savage known as al-baghdadi is dead, finally. [chanting]
11:24 pm
pres. trump: just this week, i stuck up for three great warriors against the deep state. you know what i'm talking about. i had so many people say, sir, i don't think you should do that. people have to fight. they shouldn't say, gee whiz. they wanted to put him in jail for 25 years. one young man was in jail for 7 years. he had 16 years to go. i want to tell you, when you look at what they did to that man, you would have been very proud at what we ended up doing. he came out and he hugged his parents.
11:25 pm
it was a beautiful thing. i will always stick up for our great fighters. people can sit in air-conditioned offices and complain, but it doesn't matter to me. they're out of that field, and they are doing a job for us like nobody else in the world can do. the fact is, america is winning again. america is respected again. so while we're creating jobs and killing terrorists and taking care of our borders. we're setting records.
11:26 pm
the wall is happening. it's getting billed rapidly and that's a real wall. the radical left democrats are trying to rip our nation apart. [booing] first, it was the russia hoax. total hoax. it was a failed overthrow attempt and the biggest fraud in the history of our country. then the mueller deal. you remember that mess. they had nothing. two years.
11:27 pm
they spent $45 million and the real cost is many times that number. now the same maniacs are pushing the deranged impeachment. think of this. impeachment. a witch hunt. the same as before. they're pushing that impeachment witch hunt. a lot of bad things are happening to them. you see what's happening in the polls? everybody said, that's really bullshit. [cheers and applause] everybody. a lot of fake news out there.
11:28 pm
they're gonna say the president came. they will never talk about the crowd. one of the democrats yesterday had a rally. two people showed up, two. two people! they give us no credit. if some but he has a rally like 1000 people, they'll say, it was packed. they had a thousand people. if we have a rally with 50,000 people, they don't talk about it. i don't know much about this, but you go outside, there are a lot outside that can't get in.
11:29 pm
the lies of the democrats are being exposed. their schemes are unraveling. their crimes, and that's what it is, crimes. did you ever hear this guy, schiff? he made up my statement to the ukrainian president. he made it up. people.e crooked these crimes are being revealed and their sinister plans are being unveiled at a level that nobody thought, even me, possible. the radical democrats are trying to overturn the last election because they know they cannot win the next election. it's very simple. you know, when i started this --
11:30 pm
[crowd chanting "four more years"] pres. trump: when i started this, i said, we're gonna do this and that, and it didn't mean anything. just another guy trying to get elected. it's tough. it's not easy. when a guy goes out and nobody shows -- it's not easy. it's normal. this is not normal. you think this is normal? can i be honest, in front of those fakers back there, some of the most corrupt people in the world. i will tell you in front of these guys, and they're fake,
11:31 pm
they're corrupt. in front of the media, this has never happened before. we never have an empty seat. i say, let's go to florida, just get me the biggest arena. let's go to wisconsin, let's go to michigan, let's go to pennsylvania, north carolina, south carolina, michigan -- anywhere. and all i say is, it doesn't matter, just get me the biggest arena. we get these massive arenas like this one and they're packed. we put the screens outside so that people can see. there is something happening in this country like has never been seen before.
11:32 pm
in the twisted worldview of the washington very sick democrats, fine when hillary clinton ran her outrageous pay for play scheme out of the state department. then she deleted 33,000 emails after receiving the subpoena from congress. that was standard play. when i have a perfect phone call -- it's a perfect call. there was a woman being interviewed. they were talking to women who voted for trump. [women cheering]
11:33 pm
pres. trump: no, they were trying to find one of those grade b networks. they couldn't find -- they got these 10 women. they were all for trump. they all said i voted for trump but i won't do it again. they said, who is voting for trump? 10 hands. it's incredible what's happening. they actually said, and i shouldn't say this because they will bring it up, we have the greatest base in the history of politics. you're the smartest. they don't like to say that. i went to great colleges, you went to great schools or colleges. you people are successful as hell. they like to try to demean. we're winning, you're smarter,
11:34 pm
you're better looking, you're sharper. they call themselves elite. if they're elite, then we're the super elite. it's true. they talk about these people that are elite that are running. have you been watching these debates? what's elite about that? there's nothing elite. we're doing great. we're going to have a tremendous victory. when i have a perfect call -- think of it, what they get away with. forget.and -- and with no -- don't forget.
11:35 pm
i came to washington having been here only a few times. i'm writing in washington and i say to the first lady, who is doing a fantastic job, i think i might have been in washington 17 times in my life, and i'm looking at the first lady and i say, melania, do you believe it? i'm president. [cheering] ? can you believe it? and i never saw so many motorcycles and i never saw so many police cars and we are going so fast in the opposite direction -- it's not supposed to go that way -- i say, this is
11:36 pm
cool, we could get used to this, this is ok. i'm thinking to myself when i said that i said, look, so i get elected, and i beat the bush dynasty. [cheering] elected and i be with no experience, i have tremendous world experience, but i didn't have political experience -- i get elected and we beat the clinton dynasty, right? and then we beat barack hussein obama and whatever the hell dynasty that is. we have 24 years of people putting people in office. we have tens of thousands of people. some of them are very nice, but
11:37 pm
i get stuck with a lot of people that i don't want. tens of thousands. we're getting it right. we have a great cabinet. we are doing things that no president has ever done before. you've got to be very happy. we have done more already. hopefully, i will say this to drive them crazy, hopefully we have another at least five years to go. at least. you know, they think, he's not leaving, don't you? we have five years and we will make it a great five years. we have done much more than i promised.
11:38 pm
if you look at the tax cuts and the military and the v.a. right to try, how good is that? things that for years and years they have been trying to get passed. when i have a perfect phone call with all of the horrible things that they have done, with the president of the ukraine, they've tried to claim that it's an impeachable offense. one of the women said this morning, i'm voting for trump. i happened to read the transcript of his phone call and he did absolutely nothing wrong -- can you imagine? they take this perfect call and they want to impeach your president. here's the good news. we have more support in the republican party, kevin mccarthy, meadows, jim jordan, the great champion wrestler.
11:39 pm
we got a couple of them here. i'll save their names. steve scalise has been incredible. how's elise doing? new star. it's incredible. devin nunes, how good has he been? devin. so many more. i don't want to get into it. a lot of stars are being made. i was told backstage that our poll numbers are through the roof. people don't like watching a scam. they don't like watching it. they have a sick puppy, shifty schiff. he is sick. they don't like seeing what's happened. a lot of democrats are saying --
11:40 pm
one of them was in detroit, d, democrat 30. that's not one that we will work too hard to get but you never know. she came out and said, i'm not here to impeach the president. what they're saying is, they don't like the position they are in. they are going to like it less and less and we will take it right to november 3, 2020. we're gonna take back the house. so the president of the ukraine declared -- there was no pressure put on me. he's the only one that matters. he said it all different ways. no pressure. they don't even know what they're talking about. the ukrainian foreign minister stated, and i quote, ambassador sondland did not tell us, and certainly did not tell me, about
11:41 pm
a connection between the assistance and the investigation. i have never had a direct link between investigations and security assistance. what that means, it means, we did zero -- we did nothing wrong. nothing. a great senator from wisconsin, ron johnson. a supporter of us from day one. of the ukraine, he said, who met privately -- and he met with president zelensky and he said, at no time during that meeting was there any mention by the president -- you know what i'm talking about, right? at no time was there any mention or anything that they were feeling any pressure in return for military aid.
11:42 pm
they were devastated by what happened with this mueller witch hunt deal. then mueller testified. how did he do? wasn't too good. they were devastated. they say, this was a disaster. now they say, give us anything, we'll impeach him. let him go to the refrigerator and pick an orange, from florida, no less. we'll impeach him. during the time period at issue, the u.s. government held many meetings with the ukraine and never once did the ukraine or the official say anything that was wrong. all of a sudden i'm hearing about a phone call. fortunately, they had transcribers. how about if i didn't -- with these lowlifes. all i'm saying, i don't want to
11:43 pm
go in it too long. it's a terrible hoax. last week, sondland testified that i told him, what do you want from the ukraine? i said, i want nothing. no quid pro quo. i want nothing. tell president zelensky to do the right thing, to do what he ran on. that's what he said. everybody knows this. everybody. there's a lot of people who heard shifty make up a story where he made up what i said. these are the facts. the case closed, game over. turn off the television. as soon as he said that, it was like, turn off the television. i have had republicans come up
11:44 pm
to me say, can we keep this sucker going a little bit longer? we've never seen anything like it at the polls. i said, let's get it over with but, you know what, we are stuck dealing with sick and corrected the failed washington establishment is trying to stop me because i'm fighting for you and because we're winning. very simple. they're attacking me because i'm exposing a rigged system that enriched itself at your expense, and i'm restoring government of, by, and for the people. if you want to see what corruption looks like, then take a look no further than slow, sleepy joe.
11:45 pm
i don't know what's going on with joe. when sleepy joe was in charge of the ukrainian policy, his son, i call him, where is he? where's hunter? what happened to hunter? where's hunter? his son received millions and millions of dollars from a ukrainian energy company -- you know the reputation of that company, despite knowing absolutely nothing about energy. what business are you in, sir? the mailbox business? oh, bail bond, whoa. you know hunter biden? do you know sleepy joe? bail bonds.
11:46 pm
hmm. did you ever work on energy before? he said no. you know more about energy than hunter. despite being thrown out of the navy for lots of different reasons, he made no money, zero, nothing. all of a sudden, his father becomes vice president. he's making millions and millions, and then he goes to china. we're getting close to a good deal. if we don't make it, that's fine, but we're getting very close. hunter is dealing with different people than i am in china. after 10 minutes, he walked away with $1.5 million. i said to everybody, these are different people than i am dealing with in china. they're much softer.
11:47 pm
that was when his father was vice president. can i tell you something? the fake news doesn't want to bring it up. they protect everybody. [crowd booing] the democrats on stage don't bring it up, do you notice? if he should make it, it will be brought up 75% of the time we are debating. nobody ever got away with a scam like that. nobody. day after day, we are exposing the depravity, dishonesty, and sickness of the corrupt washington establishment. they are rough and dirty players. they are coming at you from every side, coming at you from new york, coming at me from new jersey, coming at me from every democratic state.
11:48 pm
rush limbaugh said -- and sean hannity -- [cheers and applause] that he doesn't know a man or woman in the world that could take the crap that president trump is taking and i understand that. and at the same time, be a great president. nobody, in the first three years of a presidency, has done what we've done, nobody. that's very important. with your help, we're going to complete the mission. we are draining the swamp. on election date 2020, the crazy democrats are going down in a landslide.
11:49 pm
that landslide is going to start right here in the great state of florida. [cheers and applause] [crowd chanting "usa, usa, usa"] pres. trump: thank you. here is something that you just read about. we like these updated stories. don't we like something that happened a few days ago? everybody falls asleep. nobody comes. they say, how was he? it was so boring. it was so boring. i always say, being presidential is always easy.
11:50 pm
thank you. it is so easy. doing what i do is tough. it's not tough for me because i like it. if you don't love what you're doing, forget about it. i do like it. what we are doing together has never been done before. never been done. i like telling the stories that happened. they don't have to put them in speeches. he read stuff and people fall asleep. on saturday, you saw what happened. the white house physician called me and said, i could do some of the physical. i never took physicals before. it's important. it's good.
11:51 pm
january is a very busy month for you, sir. you're right. what do you want to do? let's go. we go to walter reed medical center. incredible doctors. i was there for just a short while. i visited a family of a soldier. incredible family. their son was in serious condition. i stayed with them for a little while. i towards the hospital. very simple. i took a little part of my physical so i don't have to take it in january. i got back into the motorcade, the car. we have many cars and trucks and ambulances, unfortunately. lots of different things. we also have a bus, whatever carries these crazy people. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: the press follows me wherever i go, unfortunately. in the old days, i can sneak out
11:52 pm
and go someplace. these people are crazy. the press, everybody is there. we started a beautiful thing. lots of cars and lots of action. the press is following me. i hadn't even gotten back to the white house. that stupid, corrupt, horrible cnn -- [crowd booing] pres. trump: their ratings are terrible, by the way. and others, and others, and others. cnn's ratings are terrible. look, their light just went off. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: the light just went off. i shouldn't do it. i shouldn't do it. we lose audience when that happens.
11:53 pm
they reported so here i am. [crowd chanting "cnn sucks"] pres. trump: i'm there for a very routine, little, simple physical. by the way, i want to tell you about it. if there is something wrong. it's very big stuff. i was there to save a little time. i feel great. let me tell you, if i didn't feel great, i wouldn't be ranting and raving to 22,000 people with lots of people outside. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: so i get back in and now it's a short drive. we arrive in the white house. i heard that they said, it came out in the media, including some of the very people who are here tonight.
11:54 pm
it's like the academy awards used to be. you know the academy awards? they were big until they have started hitting us. now they have gone down the tubes. look at all those lights back there. but i'm getting out of the car and somebody says, are you ok? i said, what's that about? i go a few feet further and another security, sir, are you ok? i said, yes, i'm fine. what's wrong? nobody has ever asked me that. these are the greatest people. the military, the secret service. they are the greatest. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: but they don't ever say, sir, are you ok? i could see he was troubled.
11:55 pm
he likes me, you know? i walk another few feet, sir, i hope you're ok. what is going on? and then they said i had a massive heart attack. nothing to joke about. they said i had a massive heart attack. and it wasn't true. they knew wasn't true.
11:56 pm
so we had the people call. it doesn't mean anything. they are totally corrupt people. they said it's untrue. they brought it down from a massive, unbelievable heart attack -- it's very dangerous for them to do. the world -- believe it or not, the rest of the world and leaders like and respect your president. we don't want to hear this. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: it's very sad. instead, they brought it down a
11:57 pm
instead, they brought it down a notch. they said, he went into the hospital. it's true, i didn't wear a tie. why would i wear a tie? the first thing they do is take off your shirt. show us your gorgeous chest. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: we want to see. we've never seen a test quite like it. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: seriously, why would i put on a tie? we are there in 20 minutes and i take it off. it's a physical. people said, he wasn't wearing a tie which is unusual for me. maybe it's not their fault. you never apologize. they said, he wasn't wearing a tie. it's a sign of a massive heart attack. we called off and our people did a good job. screaming, here -- he's fine, nothing happened. they brought it down to tremendous chest pains. he had chest pains. one of them said, they were tremendous. tremendous. the only one that didn't know it was me. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: and then they said, a little bit later, he is staying over in the hospital. they knew i came back. they were with me. they were with me. they were with me. they saw me got into the car. they saw steve. -- saw us leave. they said i stayed at the great walter reed hospital. so, we said, no, the chest pains
11:58 pm
aren't true. they kept on reporting it. we couldn't get them to stop. they are corrupt, crooked. we couldn't get them to stop. they are corrupt, crooked. we don't have freedom of the press. we have a very dishonest press. [crowd booing] pres. trump: on monday, i flew to texas. i opened up an apple computer plant. they make the new, beautiful mac they make the new, beautiful mac whatever. i met with tim cook and did lots of work. it's a long flight. i got back many hours later, it was late night. i said, you know what, i just set a record. yesterday or the day before, they said i had a massive heart attack. now, a day later, i'm traveling to texas to open up this big plant. i don't know. not too many people have ever done that one before.
11:59 pm
so, i just want to tell you as an example, we had a great two weeks watching these crooked politicians not giving us due process. not giving us lawyers. not giving us the right to speak. and destroying their witnesses. it fell apart. those were there witnesses. we weren't allowed any rights. for the first time in the history of our country, we had no rights. despite that, we won. if you read the crooked "new york times," if you read "the washington post," a horrible paper, we don't have it anywhere in d.c. anymore. we don't deliver it or give it. we used to buy it. i ended it in the nation. i want them to get correct news, not fake news.
12:00 am
but there bad peoples. so what happened -- but they are bad people. so what happened, we keep winning, we won these last two weeks so solidly. if you pick up the new york times, this crazy washington postpost. that's why they don't want to have this, they don't want to see it go on. it probably will, because the people are nuts. i really think it is a good thing for us as a party. it will walk us through the crazy election, which will take place already. thrilled to be joined tonight by many terrific republican leaders. have one up on the stage, but they are stars, warriors like those three guys
12:01 am
we helped out, warriors in a different way. they are fighting for your president and your country. they love the state of florida, congressman matt gaetz. the man i just watched last night on television. he was fantastic. he was fantastic. congressman michael long. billy posey, a great guy and a great fighter. come up, billy. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: gus bilirakis. gus, come on up. and a man who is an incredibly brave guy come a friend of mine, somebody who has done a
12:02 am
fantastic job and loves this state. brian mast. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: i want to introduce a friend of all of ours who ran a friend of all of ours who ran a great campaign, won easily, despite a lot of crooked stuff going on with those voting machines.
12:03 am
[cheers and applause]
12:04 am
pres. trump: true. he better not be more popular in florida than me. here's a quick one. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: here's a quick story. i shouldn't say it. what the hell? ron has been a friend of mine for a long time.
12:05 am
12:06 am
he was an incredible
12:07 am
12:08 am
12:09 am
12:10 am
12:11 am
12:12 am
they would have two or three jobs. that's not happening anymore. you can choose your job. if you don't like what you are doing, if you are not having a good time getting up the morning, all you do is find a new job. you will get more money, most likely. you've never been so set. you've never been successful like you've been right now. never even close. the state has never had this success. you have a great governor. rick scott is now your senator.
12:13 am
he's fantastic. marco rubio, a great guy. we have two great guys. marco and rick. two great guys. they love the state. the median income under president bush rose $400 over an eight year time. think of this. eight years, $400. under president obama, it rose $975. you have 400, 8 years. 975, 8 years. under trump, in less than three years, it rose $5,000. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: but that's 5000, right? now you can add to the $5,000. tax cuts, regulatory cuts, and
12:14 am
energy savings. we are the number one in the world. we can add another $5,000. it's $400, $975, and less than three years, $10,000 median income. nobody's going to beat that. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: nobody's going to be that. we are going to keep it going. we have tremendous untapped potential. we ended the last administration's war on american energy. the united states is now the number one producer of oil and natural gas anywhere in the world. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: the democrats want to close it up. i don't know what they will use. little tiny windmills. the big ones killed too many birds. we are reversing decades of ruinous trade policies that demolished one in four -- the number is now greater than that. florida manufacturing jobs, you
12:15 am
would need a magic wand. you will never bring it back. you need a magic wand. after the twin disasters of nafta, one of the worst trade deals ever made, and china's entrance in the wto, the wto. for years, bought and paid for politicians took money from special interests to ship your jobs to other countries. their campaign coffers got full. the lives of hard-working americans were destroyed. all these companies left you with the jobs, they left you with nothing. you are having the greatest year in florida. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: a doctor, please. doctor in the house, please.
12:16 am
thank you. thank you very much. are you ok? you look like a tough guy to me, i'll tell you. thank you. get a little water or something. in the old days, we used to share water. today, that doesn't happen so much. our administration has some things that people haven't seen for a long time. maybe ever. no more putting our country second, third, 20th, 30th. we put america first now. we put it first. thanks to our steel tariffs, steel mills are now firing back up across the nation. they are doing fantastically well, including a brand-new $240 million investment in polk county.
12:17 am
good place. we are replacing the nafta catastrophe, if nancy pelosi will ever sign it and send it. we are waiting, for months. usmca is an incredible agreement. everybody wants it. she doesn't want to give the people of our country a victory. i don't know. maybe she will put it. all she has to do is move it forward. it's one of the greatest deals ever. at a certain point, canada and mexico have been waiting for many months. they will say, you know what, let's forget about it. she has to sign it. everybody wants it. she has to put our country first. have to put our country first. it's a tremendous win for florida farmers and all farmers, for growers and ranchers from all over our country. yet she and the democrats just have done nothing.
12:18 am
they are doing nothing, folks. they are doing nothing. it's a terrible thing. it's a terrible thing. congresswoman recursive pal come away she? congresswoman shalala. [crowd booing] pres. trump: i know her well, new york. get her to put it up. nancy is on track to go down as the single worst and least productive speaker of the house in the history of our country. before my election, our leaders used the great american middle class as a piggy bank to fund their delusional global projects. it's all over the globe. i'm president of the united states. i'm not president of the world.
12:19 am
[cheers and applause] pres. trump: they decimated american manufacturing to promote economic growth in foreign countries. they used our military to defend immensely wealthy nations, subsidizing their welfare states with your money. they spend trillions of trillions of dollars on wars in the middle east. by the way, you see what's happening. we are winning and pulling them back. a lot of folks reporting today, we are doing great. we defeated isis, just a you understand. we defeated 100% of the isis caliphate. when we see them forming, we go in and get them. our military is unsurpassed. they did this while our cities at home fell into decay and disrepair. we spent $8 trillion in the middle east. and we want to fix a road or a highway or a school, it is not easy to get the money, but we are getting it done anyway.
12:20 am
after years of rebuilding other nations, we are finally rebuilding our nation. it is about time. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: we are finally putting america first. as leaders transform faraway nations into bloodsoaked war zones, then demand americans accept unlimited migration into those territories. we don't want to do that. we are not doing that. as president, i will not allow our immigration system to be used against us. i will not allow political correctness to put our families in danger and our communities at risk. we won't do it. to protect our people from these grave threats abroad, i implemented the travel ban.
12:21 am
and i just heard today by the fake news that the travel ban failed in court. it won the supreme court. what they meant, in an earlier court, it lost. they said, he lost in court on the travel ban. that is right, in the early court. then i lost at the appellate division, then i won at the u.s. supreme court, but they didn't say that. they forgot to tell you the last part. so we are keeping terrorists, we are keeping criminals and violent extremists the hell out of our country. we are doing great on the border. we are doing great on the border. on no issue have democrat
12:22 am
politicians become more dangerous than immigration. the democrat party wants open borders, which is a betrayal of every mother and father who wants deadly drugs to be kept out of their community. they want open borders. figure this one. they want sanctuary cities, let the criminals go in. they want open borders, let people pour into our country no matter who they are. and they want higher taxes. all my life i grew up, and i had great interest in politics, fortunately for you. i said, gee, they are going to lower taxes. good. the democrats want to raise taxes and have open borders. i don't think that plays well. what do i know? the threat is to every child whose school is under siege from these horrible gangs they would allow in, like ms-13.
12:23 am
we have taken thousands and thousands of ms-13 gang members the hell out of our country and back to where they came from. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: in the republican party, we believe all americans, including wonderful legal immigrants, are entitled to an immigration system that puts their needs first. we want to let people come in, but people have to come in legally and they have to come in through merit. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: but thanks to our tireless efforts to secure the border, border patrol, i.c.e, law enforcement -- incredible people. illegal crossings are down 70% since may, and the wall is going
12:24 am
up faster than anyone would have thought. that wasn't easy. getting that wasn't easy. the democrats would give me anything, any money, billions and billions for anything, except the wall. the only reason they do not want the wall is because i wanted it. they always say i never apologized for a mistake, but i did. i should have said we will not build a wall, and they would have wanted to build the wall. what am i going to do? we are removing illegal border crossers from central america at a pace never done before. during my first two years in office. are you ok? okay.
12:25 am
doctor, please. thank you. he is strong. thank you very much. doctor, thank you. thank you, fellas. great. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: don't forget, these people have been standing for 2.5 days. that's a lot. thank you. come on back if you are feeling well, okay? that is the man i asked a question to before, and he gave me a good answer. you come back when you are feeling better, okay? come back. tough guy. thank you. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: that's great.
12:26 am
that's great. thank you. firefighters. thank you. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: thank you very much. what a great job. they are right on the ball, our people. amazing. thank you. bring him back as soon as he feels better. during my first two years in office, border patrol seized 7000 more pounds of deadly drugs than the last two years of the obama administration. seizures of heroin were up. the far left's in place of sanctuary cities demonstrates their disdain for everyday americans. sanctuary cities have adopted a policy of lawless anarchy, aimed at innocent civilians. they deliberately release dangerous criminals onto our
12:27 am
streets, out of our jails. it is crazy. republicans believe citizens should be sanctuaries to law-abiding americans, not for criminal aliens. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: in the democrat presidential debate, every single democrat candidate raised their hand and pledged to give illegal aliens free health care, courtesy of you, the american taxpayer. [boos] pres. trump: i couldn't believe it. i will never allow democrats in washington to take away your health care and give it to illegal immigrantss. the democrat party is determined to launch a determined takeover of health care that would take away your doctor, eviscerate medicare, and put every single
12:28 am
senior citizen at risk. republicans will always safeguard medicare for our cherished seniors. always. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: we will strongly protect patients with pre-existing conditions, and we will protect your pre-existing physicians. which the democrats are not going to be doing. thanks to our tireless effort to lower the price of prescription drugs, drug prices have declined in our country for the first time in more than 50 years. think of that. but as we are working closely with your governor to bring drug prices down even more here in florida and other states, if they want it -- it is what ron said, we are allowing your state
12:29 am
to buy the identical drug, often made in the same factory, from other countries where the prices are 70% lower. that is because our system is all screwed up. i say, go to canada to buy them. watch what happens with the drugs. we are giving florida the right to buy at a much lower price. virtually every top democrats also supports late-term abortions, ripping babies straight from the mother's womb, right up until the moment of birth. that is why i asked congress to prohibit extreme late-term abortion, because republicans believe that every child is a sacred gift from god. [cheers and applause]
12:30 am
democrats are now party of high taxes, high crime, late-term abortion, socialism, and blatant corruption. the republican party is the party of the american worker, the american family, the american dream, and remember this -- the republican party is the party of abraham lincoln. we forgot. abraham lincoln. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: and i've always heard the most important thing a president can do is the appointment of judges. i say maybe the military, because without the military, we are not so interested in judges, right? i think the military. but we have appointed more than
12:31 am
160 federal judges, including court of appeal judges, to interpret the constitution as written. and we will soon have 182, which will be a record. we are strongly protecting our environment, because we want america to have the cleanest air and cleanest water anywhere on earth. here in florida, as i promised, we delivered over half of $1 billion to fix lake okeechobee. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: remember i kept saying we are going to do it? much more than $500 million. we had it fixed. we fixed the herbert hoover take and fixed the systems in the florida everglades. we did that altogether. they have been talking about doing it for years.
12:32 am
they didn't do anything. it is finished in some cases. almost finished. all of the money has been gotten for florida. i signed legislation authorizing to fight red tide and other toxic algae. now ron has got the money he wants, so he will straighten it out. $100 million. together we will preserve florida's natural majestic beauty for every generation to come. we are investing over $2 trillion. think of it. up to $2.5 trillion in our military, including $200 million for military installations. i love that panhandle. wow. remember during the election,
12:33 am
that great election night. 2016, was that one of the greatest evenings ever? [cheers and applause] pres. trump: and florida was coming in sort of even. we are doing well. a little ahead of schedule. florida wins the first really big state. everything is all right. we are pretty even with crooked hillary. then all of a sudden, we hit a thing called the panhandle. it was like a rocket ship. we take care of the panhandle. we love the panhandle. we also spent a lot of money on macdill air force base in tampa. in panama city, we are building big, beautiful ships for our incredible coast guard. what they have done in texas with the hurricanes, puerto rico. this state will play a critical role in the sixth branch of of
12:34 am
the u.s. military, the space force. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: the democrats are trying to stop it, but i think we are in pretty good shape. that is the new frontier. you look at china. you look at russia. it is about space. we are behind. we will never be behind like that again. space force. brand-new. i withdrew from the horrible, one-sided iran nuclear deal. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: i recognized israel's through capital and opened the american embassy in jerusalem. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: and we have recognized israel's sovereignty over the golan heights. they have been trying to get that done for 52 years.
12:35 am
they have been working on jerusalem and the embassy in the capital for many many presidents. everybody said we are going to do it during the campaign. never got done. we have a man with us tonight, the ambassador to israel, ambassador david freeman. where is he? did i do a good job for israel, david? [cheers and applause] pres. trump: great ambassador. great success story. here in the western hemisphere, we are confronting the brutal menace of communism and socialism. we are presently supporting the great people of venezuela, cuba, and nicaragua in their righteous struggle for freedom. you know that. and for those who would try to
12:36 am
impose the horrors of socialism on our country, i say tonight, america will never be a socialist country. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: this election is a choice between turning back to the past of american decline. we were declining. we were not respected. i can tell you that. we were not respected. everyone took advantage of our country. you see what is happening. this gentleman said we were for sale. we are not for sale anymore. but now we are continuing forward to a future of american
12:37 am
strength and dominance. if you look at the dominance -- look at what we are doing. nobody thought they were going to see this. and american prosperity. it is a choice whether our country is ruled by corrupt politicians. you know what i am talking about. they think it is easy. they have been entrenched for a long time, some very bad people. or whether we will be ruled by the american people. for years and years, you watched as your politicians apologized for america. now you have a president who is standing up for america. we are standing up for the incredible people of florida. thank you very much. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: with your help, we will lift millions more of our citizens from welfare to work, dependence to independence.
12:38 am
together, we will elect a republican congress to create a fair, safe, sane, and lawful system of immigration. they don't want to approve loopholes. they don't want to approve anything. they want people to pour in to our country. many of those people are very bad people. with the help of our governor and great congressman and senators, we will fight to give school choice to every child in america who needs it. we will enact trade deals. they are coming along great. we just finished our the deal with japan. we just did our deal with south korea. we made them into good deals, fair deals. if they don't want to make a deal, that is ok, we will just
12:39 am
tariff the product that pours into your country. we are enacting trade deals that result in more products proudly stamped with that beautiful phrase, "made in the usa." we will achieve new breakthroughs in science and medicine, finding new cures for childhood cancer and ending the aids epidemic in america within 10 years. can you believe it? we now have the science to do it. and it could have been started before my administration, but they didn't do that. who would have thought that was possible? when they told me about that a year and a half ago, i said i did not know that. the doctors said that is what they are going to do. they will end the aids epidemic in 10 years. we will chart a new era of space.
12:40 am
we will soon land an astronaut on the surface of mars. that is what we are shooting for. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: nasa is doing a great job. we have some private rich guys. they love rocket ships. we said, go ahead, elon, play your games, just pay us some nice rent, please. we will defend privacy, free speech, free and assembly, religious liberty, and the right to keep and bear arms. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: and above all, we will never stop fighting for the sacred values that bind us together as one, beautiful country, as one america. we support protect and defend the constitution of the united states.
12:41 am
we stand with the incredible heroes of law enforcement. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: we believe in the dignity of work and the sanctity of life. we believe that faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, are the true american way. we believe children should be taught to love our country, honor our history, and to always respect our great american flag. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: we will always live by the words -- and nobody will take them away -- nobody -- of our national motto, in god we trust. [cheers and applause]
12:42 am
pres. trump: nobody is taking them away. we stand on the shoulders of american patriots who crossed the oceans, settled the continent, tamed the wilderness, revolutionized industry, pioneered science, won two world wars, defeated fascism and communism, landed men on the moon, and made america the greatest nation in the history of the world. and we are making it greater than ever before. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: proud citizens like you helped build this country, and together we are taking back our country. we are taking it back from some very bad people.
12:43 am
we are returning power to you, the american people. with your help, your devotion, and your drive, we are going to keep on working. we are going to keep on fighting. we are going to keep on winning, winning, winning. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: we are one movement, one people, one family, and one glorious nation, under god. our beautiful america is thriving like never before, and ladies and gentlemen, the best is yet to come. [cheers and applause] pres. trump: true. we will, together, make america wealthy again.
