President Donald Trump: (02:29)
Oh, what a crowd. This is some crowd. Wow. This is a big crowd. Well, thank you very much. This is a great crowd. We have a lot of great crowds. It’s something happening. You’re going to see that on the third, although the Supreme Court would probably like to delay it for a long time it looks like, but we’re going to have a tremendous victory. It’s going to be a victory like none other. It’s the most election of our lives. Hello, Michigan. How are you doing, Michigan? How are you doing? It’s cold, but I feel very warm in this group. This a great group. Four days from now, we are going to win this state and we are going on to win four more great years in the White House. We’re going to have it. We’re going to have it. Unless there’s something that we don’t see. I’m watching these Biden rallies. It’s like there’s nobody. Of course, he says that they want to do it that way on purpose. The problem is nobody shows up. They were putting on the screen our rally, that’s you, you’re all famous, very famous. And his rally, there was nobody. At least he’s doing a rally. He got out of the basement so that’s good.
President Donald Trump: (04:03)
With your support, we will continue to bring back your jobs, cut your taxes, cut your regulations. Support our great police, support our military, defend our borders, protect the second amendment, which is under siege. Protect always religious liberty and ensure more products are proudly stamped with the wonderful phrase. You know what it is? Made in the USA. That’s happening more and more. Thanks to our historic campaign to slash red tape and mobilize industry. We will deliver a safe vaccine to the American people in just a number of weeks, a couple of weeks. It’s happening very fast, great companies. The greatest companies of their kind in the world. And we’ve got plenty of them there too.
President Donald Trump: (04:55)
Seniors will be first. We make seniors first, right? Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you. They say, “Will you be the first one to take it? You know it’s a no-win situation. If I say yes, “They’ll say he demanded to be first.” If I say no, they’ll say, “He had no courage.” Now we’re going to take care of our seniors first. We’re going to take care of our doctors and frontline workers, everybody. And by the way, without it, we’re still rounding the corner. We have it, but without it, we round the corner and it will be available free. We’re doing the vaccine free. And the reason is that this wasn’t your fault. This wasn’t anyone’s fault. This was China’s fault.
President Donald Trump: (05:38)
Just remember it. Our vaccine will eradicate the virus much more quickly and end the pandemic quickly, quickly, quickly, because we want to have our life restored. Just a normal. That’s all we want. That’s all we want, normal. We just want normal. Bring us back seven months. That’s what we want, right? And that’s what the whole world wants. Look what’s happening in Europe. It’s terrible. It’s terrible. What China has done to this world and just remember it, just you remember it. And next year will be the greatest economic year in the history of our country. You see what’s happening.
President Donald Trump: (06:13)
33.1%. Nobody can blame you. They can’t believe it. They don’t like talking about it. You know they don’t like talking about it. They have a new thing going. It’s called … Thank you. Thank you. You hear that, Ben Carson? You hear that, Ben? I’ll tell you. Nobody’s ever heard that before politically. Maybe for Ben Carson. I don’t know, maybe. I love Ben Carson. Thank you, Ben and Candy. Thank you. Thank you, Candy.
President Donald Trump: (06:55)
Joe Biden is promising a long, dark, painful winter. Did you see him at the debate? Did anybody see the debate by any chance? No, he said, “A long, dark winter.” Oh, that’s great. That’s wonderful. That’s just what our country needs is a long, dark winter and a leader that talks about it. I didn’t have the privilege of going to my basement in the White House. I didn’t have the privilege of going to a beautiful room on the second or third floor and staying there for a year and a half because I’m president of the United States. So I didn’t have that. I had to do my job.
President Donald Trump: (07:35)
And I said, “You know, I could catch this thing. And if I do, I do, and I’m going to get better fast.” I didn’t know I was going to get better that fast. That was pretty good. That was like in and out. And I had a dose. I wasn’t feeling great, but I got better. And it used to be they would say, “You have lifetime immunity.” You’re immune. Now it’s different. Because it’s me they say, “I’m good for four months.” Okay? They brought it down from lifetime to four months, but that’s okay. I’ll take it. But you know what? You have to do your job. You have to get back. You have to open up your states, right? You have to open up your states.
President Donald Trump: (08:13)
We got to get our governor to open up our state here, don’t we? Ah, don’t worry. On November 4th, they’ll announce all these states, all these Democrat run states will be open. Not me. Not me see. They blame me every time that happens. Every time I mentioned her name, Crooked Hillary’s name, Joe Biden’s name frankly. And where’s Hunter? Where’s Hunter? There’s Hunter right there. He’s out by the truck. Look at him make a couple of bucks Hunter. Hunter’s done very well for an unemployed person for years. For years unemployed and then he hit pay dirt. His father became vice president and Joe had pay dirt too. That’s part of the problem.
President Donald Trump: (09:14)
I’m delivering the great American comeback. That’s what we’re doing. We built the greatest economy in the history of the world. Best unemployment numbers, best everything. We had 160 million people employed. We were never even close to that number. And then one day we saved two million lives. We had to close it up. How about that decision? Oh, how horrible to have to make it. We understood the disease. We learned the disease. We have to protect our seniors, especially if they have problems with the heart or diabetes. We opened it up and now we’re at a level. I used to talking about the V, this is a super V.
President Donald Trump: (09:55)
This is the biggest number, 33.1. And the news doesn’t want to talk about it because it’s positive. They only want to talk about negative when it comes to us. But 33.1, the biggest number in our country’s history by like double, but it’s much more than double. And you’d have to go back to 1952 to get anywhere close, but you know what close is? About a 17-point spread. This election is a matter of economic survival for Michigan because Joe Biden. Look at what they did during their eight years. And you know I said during the debate, 91 to nine, 91 to nine. You know what that means? That was a poll. How did Trump do in the debate? 91% for Trump, nine.
President Donald Trump: (10:44)
Nine sisters. Look at these beautiful sisters, huh? They like Trump, but I liked them. They even have a Trump flag. Look at that Trump flag. That’s beautiful. It’s so beautiful. And you know we’re working very hard with Little Sisters of the Poor, right? You know about that. Your friends. That’s great. That’s great. It’s great to have you. Thank you very much.
President Donald Trump: (11:10)
Joe Biden is going to lock down your state, wipe out your factories, ship out your jobs, bring things to China whatever they can, punish your family with a trillion. Think of this. A trillion dollars times four, $4 trillion tax hike. We gave you the biggest tax reduction in the history of our country. That’s the good news. The bad news is he wants to give you the biggest tax hike in the history of our country.
President Donald Trump: (11:40)
He wants to eliminate private healthcare. We have 180 million people who have private health care. They’ve fought for it all their lives. They have great, great healthcare. He wants to end it and it’s not going to happen. We’re not going to let it happen and send your state into a very deep recession. But see, I think it’s worse. I think it’s depression. I just hate to use the D word. Let me just tell you something. How good have I done in bringing car companies here to Michigan? You went 42 years without a car plant. You were losing all your plants. 12 years ago, I was named Man of the Year of Michigan. Can you believe it? Long before I thought about it.
President Donald Trump: (12:20)
And I got up and I made a speech. I said, “You’re losing all your car business. Somebody gave me a list. You lost 32% of your car business to Mexico and other places.” And now we’re bringing it all back. You have many, many factories now under construction, expansions of existing. You haven’t had that ever. And then Biden. And remember this, I only ran because of Biden and Obama. If they did a good job, I wouldn’t have run. And I guess I wouldn’t have won either, but I wouldn’t have run. They did a lousy job. I watched them now. “I’m going to do this. I’m going to do that.” What the hell didn’t he do it? Why didn’t he do it?
President Donald Trump: (12:58)
Sleepy Joe and that was when he was a little bit better, a little bit more awake. He’s going to do what he hasn’t done in 47 years. I’m going to do it. That was so easy that debate because he hit me with, “I am going to do this.” And I just kept saying, Joe, “Why didn’t you do it?” And it was three and a half years ago. It wasn’t like a long time. It was three and a half years ago. Biden has vowed to abolish the entire US energy industry, right? No fracking. Guy went for a year and a half. No fracking, no fracking and then he goes to Pennsylvania. “Of course, we’re going to frack.” And the press, the fake news never asks him about it. No energy and you’re going to have gas prices.
President Donald Trump: (13:41)
This is not great for selling your beautiful cars. Gas prices of $6 and $7. Right now it’s nice to be under $2, isn’t it? You never thought you’d see that. You never thought you’d see that. Biden’s running made America’s most liberal Senator. She makes Bernie look like a conservative. Crazy Bernie is like a conservative compared to her. She even Kamala, you have to pronounce it exactly right, otherwise she gets very upset. Even though she can’t pronounce it right. You saw that the other day.
President Donald Trump: (14:19)
I think that was actually, that was on the great Laura Ingraham Show. Actually, I watched that. And I do believe Laura Ingraham is here someplace. Where is Laura? Where is she? Where is Laura? I can’t recognize you. Is that a mask? No way. Are you wearing a mask? I’ve never seen her in a mask. Look at you. Whoa, she’s being very politically correct. Whoa, whoa. I’ve never seen. Laura Ingraham. She’s fantastic. Thank you, Laura.
President Donald Trump: (14:55)
Ah yes. I’ve never seen that before, but even sponsored the ruinous Green New Deal. How about that? Knowing nothing about the environment. It’ll cost a $100 trillion. Does you know what a 100 trillion? Let me put it this way. You could take all the countries in the world, that can’t afford it. While I’m president, America will proudly remain energy independent. You know we’re independent now. We don’t need to be going all over the world. We don’t need to be going all over the world.
President Donald Trump: (15:23)
Biden will eradicate the economy. I will eradicate the virus and make the economy better than it’s ever been. That’s where we were. Now we’re doing it again. And let’s face it, he’s shot. Do you agree with that? I can say that. I’m not a fan of his, never was. He was never known as the smart one in the Senate. He was a touchy-feely guy, a little personality. He had a good personality. Now the personality’s gone and a lot of other things are gone. He’ll deliver poverty, misery, depression. I will deliver jobs, jobs, jobs, good ones too. Yesterday it was announced that last quarter when our economy, you know when this was announced, it was a tremendous announcement. The problem with it was that we didn’t get the kind of coverage that we should’ve. So in the history, think of it, in the history of our country, GDP went up to 33.1 in the history. And it was hardly mentioned. It’s amazing.. a friend of mine, very smart said to me, “Oh, they won’t talk about it.” It’s never been done before, right? “They won’t talk about it because they don’t want you to win because they’re sick and they’re corrupt. They don’t want you to win.”
President Donald Trump: (16:37)
In the last five months, we’ve created a record 11.4 million jobs. The most jobs in a short period of time ever created. And we also built the greatest economy in history and now we’re doing it again. See all those hats? Make America great again again. Make America great again again. But if Biden wins, the recovery will end and a long economic nightmare. Just like he said on the debate, “You’re going to have a dark winter.” That was really depressing. It was even depressing even though he did so badly in the debate, I was depressed because I said, “It’s such a depressing thing he said.”
President Donald Trump: (17:18)
I like the last statement the best, right? Wasn’t that the best? We said, “That means you don’t want oil.” “Yes, we are going to get off oil.” I said, “I felt like Perry Mason.” You know it’s always that last question. It’s always the last question you know the guy, “Yes, I’m guilty. I’m guilty.” And then they end the show or they go to a commercial. I said, “This is the biggest thing that happened tonight.” And even Kristen Welker who I thought did a fair job. Okay? I really did. A lot of people thought she was much tougher on me, but that we expect. Okay?
President Donald Trump: (17:52)
And she looked at him and she goes because she’s on his side, not his side, she’s on a Democrat radical left side, but she still did a relatively fair job. She said, “Why did you say that?” It’s like why? Like, “Why the hell did you say that? What the hell is wrong? I’m protecting you all night and now you end the debate. Can we keep it going for another 20 minutes?” No, I didn’t want to do that. Joe Biden spent the last 47 years outsourcing new jobs, opening your borders. He wants open borders. You don’t have borders, you don’t have a country.
President Donald Trump: (18:26)
And sacrificing American blood and treasure in endless foreign wars. We’re bringing them all back home, many of them home. Very, very few left. Were bringing them home. Got to fight the military-industrial complex. Eisenhower would talk about it all the time. The military-industrial complex. They don’t like them coming home, but they’ve been brought home and Afghanistan. 19 years I think as long enough, but we’re serving as policemen, right? We got the greatest soldiers in the world. We’re serving as policemen. They have to have their own policemen. We have our own policemen. They’re the greatest people we have, right? The greatest.
President Donald Trump: (19:02)
They’re the greatest people we have, right? The greatest. He’s a diehard globalist who cares nothing for the working people. He’s never cared for the working people. China’s been ripping you off for years, now you know why. He gets paid by China. He repeatedly tried to cut Medicare and Social Security. Over the years, Biden was a cheerleader for NAFTA, sending your auto jobs all over the place, but in particular to Mexico. Mexico is a big auto monster right now. USMCA, we did such a good job on that one.
President Donald Trump: (19:36)
He voted for China’s entry into the World Trade Organization. One of the worst things that ever happened to our country. The best thing that ever happened to China. They were flatlined, and then they joined and they went like a rocket ship. Thank you very much, Joe. Great job you did, Joe. Gutting your industries to finance China’s rise. You see it. They still have empty buildings around. From your state in particular.
President Donald Trump: (20:01)
Half of all of Michigan auto manufacturing jobs were eliminated. Think of it. You lost 50% of your jobs because of these guys. It’s him and his group. And then he says, “We’re going to do this.” He’ll come and say, “Yes, we did this.” He did nothing. He destroyed your industry. But I brought it back and you are doing great. And now, amazingly, and I still haven’t figured this, one auto production’s much higher than it was before the pandemic. Could somebody in the auto business please explain that one to me? Because I’m taking full credit for it, but even I don’t get that one. I think you’re at 130%. You’re at 130%.
President Donald Trump: (20:41)
Look at that sea of people, I hope they can hear me over there. Housing starts and housing sales. It’s incredible. But the auto, it’s at a number that nobody can believe. You’re doing good. In other words, you’re all doing good. It’s a pandemic and you’re doing good. You got to get this governor. You got to get her to open. I am so tired of watching her husband go sailing. He wants to go sailing. He’s saying, “Darling, open up this state. I want to go sail.” But he was doing it before. And fortunately he got caught. Remember, he got caught? His neighbors turned him in. Can you believe it?
President Donald Trump: (21:22)
At every turn… I don’t think she likes me too much. What do you think? Do you think she likes me? I don’t think she likes me too much. And I’ve done a great job for her. You know what, on COVID, the China Virus, I’ve done a phenomenal job for her.
President Donald Trump: (21:37)
At every turn Biden twisted knife into the back of Michigan workers and workers all over the country. In 2016, Michigan voted to fire this corrupt political establishment and you elected an outsider as president who is finally putting America first, if that’s okay. Is that okay? If I don’t sound like a typical Washington politician, it’s because I’m not a politician. If I don’t always play by the rules of Washington and the Washington establishment, it’s because I was elected to fight for you and I fight harder than any president has ever fought for the great people of this country.
President Donald Trump: (22:27)
I’m not just running against sleepy Joe Biden, I’m running against the left wing media, the big tech giants. You see how crooked they are. How crooked are they? They made a mistake by not putting it… Here, you have the biggest story there is, corruption by Joe Biden. Forget about the son, by Joe Biden. But the son, the same thing. Look, even if Joe didn’t get the 10%, or the 50%, that he was promised, listen to this. The son walks in. He had nothing. He had no experience. He gets a job for 130,000 a month on Burisma, and he gets, they say, a $3 million upfront payment. That sounds reasonable. Would anybody else take that job? A month. And he knew nothing about energy. Other than that, it sounded fine.
President Donald Trump: (23:13)
Then he goes to China, he picks up $1.5 billion, he gets fees on that. That’s millions of dollars a year. And then they give him three and a half million from Moscow. The mayor of Moscow’s wife gives him three and a half million. You don’t even hear about this, because they refuse… In fact, they just turned the cameras off. They refuse…
President Donald Trump: (23:39)
You can’t have a scandal if they don’t report it. So the Times and the Washington Post and all of the fake news, CNN, look, they turned the cameras off. [crosstalk 00:04:50]. It’s a terrible thing. They turned the damn cameras off [crosstalk 00:24:04].
President Donald Trump: (24:03)
You know what happened? They go, “We’re here live at Joe Biden..” He’s doing a thing. There’s nobody there. I’m looking. They’re showing the sea of people, 25,000 people. They’re showing it’s like a sea, and the other one their looking and there’s nobody there. But they’ve gone to that rally, and Fox has gone to. I don’t know what the hell happened to Fox. What happened to Fox? Boy oh boy.
President Donald Trump: (24:31)
Well, we still have a few great ones at Fox. We still have a few great ones. It’s not like it used to be. Biden is the… That’s one of the biggest differences between this campaign and the campaign from four years ago. We’re doing better now than we ever did. There’s more enthusiasm. The crowds are much bigger. There’s more enthusiasm. But Fox is the big difference. Somewhere along the line we lost Fox, and that’s okay. That’s all right. But that’s the big difference.
President Donald Trump: (25:05)
The big techs, I’ll tell you, the big techs are much worse. When I heard how bad they were and I heard you can’t win without them, they’re so powerful. And then we won. I said, “Why are they powerful?” Now they’ve gone totally nuts.
President Donald Trump: (25:16)
Mark Morgan, one of our top people in the border, we’ve had a great border, he was showing how great the wall is. You know, we’re almost finished with the wall and how it’s working. And he said the success, you’ve probably heard this, he said the tremendous success that we’ve had… And all he’s doing is he’s not talking as a politician. He’s so proud of the job because people aren’t getting into our country, murderers and rapists and all, they’re not coming into our country anymore.
President Donald Trump: (25:41)
We’re working very closely with Mexico. They have 27,000 troops on the border. And Mark Morgan is explaining how great this wall has been. It’s going to be finished very soon, much sooner… They’re going crazy because they never thought we get it built. That’s why they don’t talk about it anymore. They don’t talk about the wall. They used to talk about it. Now they don’t talk about it anymore.
President Donald Trump: (26:01)
But Mark is talking about how incredible the border security… And they took down his tweet and they wanted to close him up. All he’s doing is saying we’re doing a good job and he’s not a politician. He’s saying he’s doing a good job. They took down his tweet and they got the hell knocked out of them, and they put it back up, I understand. But this is really bad.
President Donald Trump: (26:21)
They don’t do that to liberals. They don’t do it to liberals. They don’t ever do it. They don’t touch them. It’s very unfair. And a lot of things are happening. Biden is the candidate of anarchists and rioters and looters and gun grabbers, flag burners.
President Donald Trump: (26:36)
We out to put people in jail for a year when they burn our flag. What the hell is that all about? I see them burning a flag. They ought to have, you burn the American flag, you go to jail for one year. It would be amazing.
President Donald Trump: (26:54)
I signed the law. You knock down a statue or a monument, you go to jail for 10 years. It’s amazing how that stopped. It’s amazing how that stopped, isn’t it? But it’s the lobbyists, special interests.
President Donald Trump: (27:07)
I’m the candidate of police officers, the middle-class, law-abiding hardworking American patriots, and others. I mean, look, I think I’m the candidate of everybody. I think you got everybody here. I know a couple of rich people. Get them the hell out of here, we don’t want them.
President Donald Trump: (27:29)
This election will decide whether we restore the rule of a corrupt political class or whether we declare that in America we are still governed. We are the people. We govern. We govern. We’re the boss. We’re the people.
President Donald Trump: (27:45)
My opponent supported the job killing Transpacific Partnership. Would have destroyed your automobile business. And I ended it immediately. In fact, crooked Hillary was in favor of it and when she heard me speak about it, she immediately turned against it, but she would have done it.
President Donald Trump: (28:01)
He supported the horrendous South Korea Trade Deal that was supposed to produce 250,000 jobs. And it did, for South Korea. It wasn’t so good for us. I read negotiated it. We made it good. We made it good. We kept the 25% chicken tax. You know about the chicken tax, right? That’s on the small trucks. And you’re doing well with small trucks. That’s your best product from a profitability standpoint. It would have been a tremendous crushing blow to the auto workers. And I want to thank the auto workers because despite your leadership… Your leadership stinks, I’ll tell you. All they want is their dues. Pay us dues. They want an increase in dues. They like their life. They like this.
President Donald Trump: (28:44)
But the workers, the auto workers, they support me like crazy. The Teamsters, you have this guy Hoffa, he calls up, can you help him with a trucking company, some trucking company, big, beautiful company, great people, many, many thousands of employees. Can you help us with that? And I said, yeah, I can probably do it. I worked it out so that people didn’t lose their jobs. It kept the company going. I was very proud of it. I thought it was great.
President Donald Trump: (29:09)
Then I see he’s endorsing sleepy Joe Biden. Biden can’t get arrested. Although actually that’s turning out to be true. He can’t get arrested. We got to think about that one. He’s endorsing Joe Biden, but you know who’s endorsing me? You know who likes me? The teamsters like me, and everybody, all of the workers like me. Maybe he won’t run. I don’t think he’d win anyway if he ran.
President Donald Trump: (29:33)
Biden even supported the outrageous Fuel Economy Standards. You know that? That’s where every little ounce they suck every… For half a glass of gasoline, which we have plenty of right now, we have so much we don’t know what the hell to do with it. We had gasoline at one point selling for so little that if you took a barrel of gasoline, they gave you $36 with the barrel. It only lasted for two hours. But I was thinking about leaving government to go an get into that business.
President Donald Trump: (30:03)
That’s when the pandemic came in and all of a sudden people weren’t driving cars, et cetera. Little things like that. But we have a lot of gasoline. We have a lot of energy. We have great energy and we believe in all forms of energy. But when they want to turn off our great factories by doing what they’re doing, with people like AOC plus three, telling us how we’re supposed to run our country.
President Donald Trump: (30:25)
AOC plus three, I don’t think she ever went… She went to a college, right? Did she ever take an environmental course? All of a sudden she’s saying no more [inaudible 00:30:36] no more [inaudible 00:30:37]. I reversed each and every one of those disasters. Now Biden wants to reinstate it. He wants to re-institute… It took 20, 21 years, many highways and roadways, simple roadways, would take 20 years to get. I have it down to two years. It’s going to be one year and they may get rejected for environmental reasons or safety reasons, but now we’re building roads. We’re doing things that we could never have done before.
President Donald Trump: (31:05)
A vote for Biden is a vote to extinguish, demolish, and wipe out Michigan’s auto industry. And many of your other industries. Many of your other industries. A vote for me is to keep and create auto jobs and all sorts of jobs in Michigan, where they belong.
President Donald Trump: (31:24)
I ended the NAFTA nightmare and replaced it with a brand new USMCA. Just kicked in. It just kicked in. You know how I know it’s good? Because Mexico and Canada aren’t so happy. They said, “Couldn’t we keep NAFTA?” I said, “No.” They said, “.ell, we want to. We demand it.” I said, “Okay, that’s okay. We’re going to put a 25% tariff on every car you send in.”
President Donald Trump: (31:46)
They said, “Like I said, wouldn’t we like to see the USMCA done?” No. I said to them, “If you want to keep it, you can. But I’m going to tariff the cars that come into this country.” So we made a great deal. We made a deal that’s good for Michigan and good for every… But just kicked in. Great for the farmers. It’ll bring tens of thousands of new jobs to Michigan. It’ll bring hundreds of thousands of new jobs to our country. And we won’t be ripped off like we were. And it’s a big disincentive for a company to go and close up their doors and move to Mexico, move to Canada. Now, if you do that, there’s a big price to pay.
President Donald Trump: (32:24)
That’s probably the primary reason I ran, if you want to know. I ran it for a lot of reasons. I ran because the last administration was no good, period. I say it all the time, Joe, I wouldn’t have run if it wasn’t for you. You guys were so bad, I ran.
President Donald Trump: (32:40)
When GM went bankrupt Biden and Obama threw the workers at Delphi Corporation… Any Delphi people here. Are you Delphi? Where’s Delphi? I tell you, I guarantee you they’re voting for Trump, right? They threw these people under the bus and days ago, I signed an order to restore the pensions and all of the other things for workers, not only Delphi, in Wisconsin, Ohio, and Michigan, who were treated very unfairly, right?
President Donald Trump: (33:18)
Good. I figured if we had none here, I would have just said to hell with it. That’s good. All right, you’re going to be taken care of. They were promised by Obama. They were promised by Biden, actually, but then Biden realized he didn’t understand the deal. He wasn’t smart. He tried. He tried. Joe tried. He’s having a hard time.
President Donald Trump: (33:40)
I tell you, I see these people and the level of viciousness. You see this character in 16 minutes, screaming, Savannah Guthrie screaming, screaming, all of them screaming. And then I see sleepy Joe walk out. “What flavor ice cream is it?” He looks down. He actually had a hard time with that question.
President Donald Trump: (34:03)
I said, they don’t ask me questions like that. They don’t do it. How about when they give them the questions? That’s worse, when he reads them off. They give him a question. This is the people I deal with all the time. They’re crazy maniacs. I deal with them all the time. They ask me things that are just terrible.
President Donald Trump: (34:19)
I’ve been doing this for a long time. They asked me very, very dangerous, horrible questions. And with him, it’s like, they give him the questions in advance and he puts it on a teleprompter. Just like that. They give him a question. Then he goes, “Could you move that a little closer?”
President Donald Trump: (34:37)
And when I see that, I said, that means that he has the questions. Not since the Hillary Clinton scandal, when she got… Remember? Who now that wonderful person that did it, Donna Brazile, is now working for Fox. So that was a great hire. That was a great hire. Let’s hire Donna Brazile, who got fired by CNN and gets hired by Fox. What’s that all about? Do you think there’s some changes going on at Fox? I don’t think so. I don’t think so. Let’s hire the person that cheated with Hillary Clinton.
President Donald Trump: (35:09)
Joe Biden is a corrupt politician. The Biden family is looking more and more like a crime family and they don’t want to. It’s called the laptop from hell. The laptop from hell. They took millions of dollars from the Chinese Communists while Vice-President Biden shipped Michigan jobs to China. How the hell can you have somebody fighting for you against China? And he’s getting money. Him and his family are getting millions and millions of dollars from China.
President Donald Trump: (35:40)
Yesterday, press reports, I don’t know about this, but press reports came out yesterday, said the Biden family is under FBI investigation for a long time for money laundering. For money laundering. If Biden wins, China… How do you have it where they’re getting millions and millions of dollars from Communist China, and then he’s going to be your president and he’s going to make a deal like I do? Nobody has done what I’ve done, including GS Steel, where they were dumping steel. And I charged them a tariff of 25%, and our steel companies came back. And the 25% was just the beginning. But our steel companies come back. I mean, they all came back.
President Donald Trump: (36:23)
When we win, Michigan wins. When we win, America wins. And that’s what I want. That’s all I want. That’s all I want. I had a very good life before this. People think this is easy. You make a telephone call and these really dishonest people they impeach you on a perfect call. “How you doing? Congratulations on your win.” A man, I never even spoke to. “I’d like to congratulate you on your win.” He just became the President of Ukraine. Let’s impeach him for that. These people are sick.
President Donald Trump: (36:53)
But you know, the Republicans stuck together. 197 to nothing in Congress. 52 and a half. 52 and a half. A half. Does anybody know who the half was? Biden didn’t know. Remember? He said, “The man from Utah. What’s his name?” He didn’t know. He forgot the name of the man. He’s only worked with him for about 35 years. Something going on up there.
President Donald Trump: (37:22)
He won’t be there long. He’s not going to be there at all because our country will be destroyed. Honestly, we can’t play games. We can’t play games. We have the potential. We have more potential as a country than we’ve ever had. We can’t have a guy like this in there. The guy doesn’t have a clue. He doesn’t. And they’ll say things that are unbelievable. He’ll say things about me. They do an ad about me that is so false. And you can’t do a thing about it. And we put them a notice, we said it was false. It was all false. We put them a very strong legal notice. They keep it going. They figure, what the hell, the thing’s over with in five days, why should we change it?
President Donald Trump: (38:02)
I’m telling you, those are bad people. That’s why…
President Donald Trump: (38:03)
Why should we change it? I’m telling you, those are bad people. That’s why I say, “I’m just going to tell you the truth.” I’ll tell you the truth, but here’s the differences. This is the truth. He’s shot. Okay? He’s shot. And it’s not because of his age because at 78 or whatever it is, I know a lot of people that are 85, I know a person 92, Bernie Marcus, 92, Home Depot. He’s perfect. In fact, I tell him I think he’s sharper now than he was 45 years ago, if you want to know. No, it’s not the age. They say age. It’s not the age. A lot of people in their 80s, even their 90s are sharp. This guy is mentally shot.
President Donald Trump: (38:39)
One of the biggest issues for Michigan, other than that, let’s keep it going, is this election, is … And you know what? One of your very big is the whole refugee situation, right? I know it’s a big deal here. To protect our national security, earlier this week, I suspended the entry of refugees from foreign nations compromised by terrorism. So you saw what’s going on in France, right? You saw that. And they had another big attack last night, a really bad one. If it’s okay with you, if it’s okay with the great people of Michigan, you got to give me approval, we are keeping radical Islamic terrorists the hell out of our country. I remember I was in the campaign and I’m running against this guy named Ben Carson. And he was tough. He was tough. No, he was. He was tough. And he made a statement somewhat similar to that. And everybody said, “Oh, he’s going to have to leave the campaign.” I said, “No, he’s not. His poll numbers just went way up, I’ll bet.” Next day, what did they go up? Like seven, eight, nine points. I said, “See?” Then I had to start really worrying about this guy. He went up. Everyone said you had to leave. Right, Candy? He has to leave the campaign. I said, “No, no, it’s actually going to be good for him.” We don’t want to be used. We don’t want to be taken advantage of. And I got passed. I got passed a ban. It’s a ban on people coming in from certain countries that are horrible countries where they hate us and the people hate us. Right?
President Donald Trump: (40:22)
And one of the reasons we’re going to go, I’m going there later, we have a governor and attorney general, we have 25,000 people want to go in Minnesota. Right? One of the reasons we’re going to win … And they want us to have 250 people. Well, that’s a slight difference. We have 25,000 people, but they have a rule you can’t have more than 250 people for a political event. So they’re scamming us. So you know what? That maybe will give us the final victory. We haven’t won Minnesota since 1972. Okay? That’s a long time, which will tell you the odds. That’s not good odds. But we’re very popular because I helped with that disaster in Minneapolis. We got the guys in there. And what did it take? About 25 minutes, it was over. They should have called a long time before they went through two weeks of hell. And that’s what we do. The federal governments are always prepared to come in. If you had problems, the federal government is always prepared to come in. We will extinguish those problems very, very quickly.
President Donald Trump: (41:25)
And we’ll always come in. And some people say, “It’s not politically correct to say that.” Yeah, it’s politically correct. I thought it was a beautiful sight. They lined up. This is after a week and a half of terror. Remember, you had that idiot anchor from CNN standing, “This has been a friendly protest.” And over his shoulder, it looked like Berlin in its worst day during the war. The worst day they ever had. But no, they told us we could only have 250 people. So they thought I’d cancel. “Oh, this is really great. Trump will cancel.” No. I’m going to go and I’ll have 250. That’s like the first row. I’ll have 250 people and they’ll have a lot of people outside, but I don’t want them to stand outside. It’s colder there than it is now. But it’s very cold and very horrible because the president of the United States is going to Minnesota to talk to people and they’re suppressing it. And they think that’s good, but I don’t. That shows weak leadership by the governor and very unfair leadership by the attorney general.
President Donald Trump: (42:30)
One thing I’ll say about that attorney general, I have to say this, he was the first one, he and a couple of people, he was sitting down being interviewed by George Stephanopoulos or somebody. And he said, no, and he was a vice chairman of the Democrat party. And you know who I’m talking about. And he said, “Trump is going to win.” This was right after I came down the escalator with our future first lady. Right? That beautiful trip. Beautiful. No. And he said, “Trump is going to win.” “No, no, no. You’re kidding. Why? Why?” “No, no. Trump is going to win.” So I realized then he’s a very smart person. He turned out to be right about that one. Didn’t he, Nigel? The great Nigel.
President Donald Trump: (43:17)
We’re working to help the Chaldean Christian community also, by the way. We’re working to help them. We’re working to help them. Are you Chaldean? Oh wow. Good. Oh, good. All right. No, we’re working to help. We’re going to help. We’re going to help. We’ve been working on it for 25 years, just like I did with Israel and so many other things. These guys, they talk, talk, talk, nothing ever gets done. Chaldean American, what are you going to show me there? You opened your jacket. Look at this. Oh. Now I like the Chaldeans even more. Oh, that’s good. You know what? They have great support. They have great support. They have great support. Good. Thank you very much. They do have great support. But hey look, it’s a wild life.
President Donald Trump: (44:23)
Biden has pledged a staggering 700, this is with Bernie Sanders and the manifesto, we call it. That’s the deal with Bernie, Crazy Bernie. And I mean, he lost twice now. Guy’s the greatest loser I’ve ever seen. No, he loses. He doesn’t even complain about it. Just goes back into Congress, he votes. He holds up his hand, radical, anything radical. The guy, I’ve never seen a guy like that. He get treated very badly by the Democrats with Hillary, then he runs again. Is Bernie Sanders going to run again in four years? Does anybody? I don’t know. He’s all right. I’ll tell you one thing, he fights like hell, right? Who would have been easier? Him or Sleepy Joe? I don’t know. No, he has a smaller base, but they have energy. Joe has a bigger base, but there’s zero energy, right? Now, we have a really big base and we have more energy than anybody. Right?
President Donald Trump: (45:22)
A 700% increase in refugees from the most dangerous terrorist spots anywhere in the world, including Syria, Somalia, where Omar, Omar, that’s the other reason I’m going to win. Omar. Ilhan. Ilhan Omar. She loves our country very much. And Yemen, right? No, she’s going to help me win. She’s going to protest when I go up there. And I’ll say, “Thank you very much. Every time you protest, it’s got to add about 25% of the vote.” She’s telling us how to run our country. And she doesn’t love our country, that I can tell you. The Biden plan will turn Michigan into a refugee camp. If you look at what they want to do, this is agreed to with Bernie Sanders in that group, a 700% increase. A lot of you people would say, “No, thank you.” He has also vowed to terminate our national security travel bans, allowing unlimited migration from deadly war zones and terrorist havens. You’re all sitting here saying, “I think I’m changing my vote. I think we’ll go with Trump.”
President Donald Trump: (46:29)
That I even have to do this, I will say this, and it’s terrible but before this COVID, there’s about 24 names, right? China plague, China virus, but we have about 20. Well, let’s just call it the China virus. Before the China virus came, we were going to have the easiest campaign in history. I was up so much. Now I got to work, right? I have to work. And that’s okay. Actually, I think people respect it even more. They respect it even more. But it has, it’s affected politics and leadership all over the world. I mean, people that were very popular all over. Because it’s uphill. But we’ve handled it well. Our people have done an incredible job. Our generals. I mean, look at the vaccines. Hey, excuse me, look at me. I go in, “Sister, I wasn’t feeling too good.” And they gave me something called Regeneron. The next morning, sister, I woke up and it was like God touched my shoulder. Right? I said, “Let me at them.” I said, “Give me a trade deal for Michigan. I want to go and renegotiate a trade there.”
President Donald Trump: (47:45)
No, what they’ve done is incredible in a short period of time, six months. I mean, they’d never even heard of this drug. And now Eli Lilly’s also doing something similar. We have things coming out that are amazing. And even the Times wrote today people are getting better. People are getting better because of what’s happening. And for the Times to write that, that’s a very, very hard thing for them to write. You would’ve thought they would’ve waited a few days, actually. Let’s wait. Let’s put out that story on the 4th of November. And you know that everything’s COVID covered. You know that. You turn on the news. COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID.
President Donald Trump: (48:19)
And cases are up. Why are cases up? Because we test more than anybody in history. I mean, we have tests on top of tests. We’d like another test. We got 19 different versions. And we test much more than India. They have 1.5 billion people. And many countries don’t test at all. Many countries don’t test at all. But we test more. But deaths are way down. And people are getting better. But I’m an example of it. My wife is an example of it. First lady. And Baron Trump, young, very young, 14. He’s my very tall 14 year old boy. He’s tall. He’s a tall guy. But he’s a strong guy. And he tested, the doctor said, “Sir, Baron has tested positive.” The doctors here, Sean, great doctor, said, “He’s tested positive.” I said, “Positive for what?” Said, “COVID.” I said, “Oh, that’s terrible.” He said, “No, he’ll be okay.” Like 15 minutes later, “How’s Baron doing, Doc?” “Oh, it’s okay. He’s fine now.” No, they have strong immune. Now they’ll say, “He exaggerated the time.” They’re so sick. They’re so sick.
President Donald Trump: (49:32)
You know what I said? I got myself into trouble with that also. Great gentlemen from England. I said that refugees are coming in and they’ll promise him more than they give our citizens. They said, “We’re going to give you healthcare. We’re going to give you a free education. And every refugee that comes in will get a free Rolls Royce.” And CNN went crazy. They said, “President Trump lied. They’re not getting a Rolls Royce.” It’s true. They took it very seriously. You can’t be sarcastic. You can’t have a little bit of fun. Because if you do, you look very bad. No, they said, “It’s not true about the Rolls Royce.” But at 800,000 a pop, I would say probably not. No, CNN took that very seriously.
President Donald Trump: (50:20)
Joe Biden’s plan will delay the vaccine, postpone therapies, crash the economy, and shut down our entire country. Under the Biden lockdown, countless Americans will die from suicide, drug overdose, deferred medical care. So many things happen, abuse. I mean, what’s happening? There will be no school, no graduations, no weddings, no Thanksgivings, no Christmas, no 4th of July. There’ll be no nothing. There’ll be no future. Other than that, it’s quite a good plan, I think. Biden doesn’t have a clue. Look, the cure cannot be worse than the problem itself. Always remember that.
President Donald Trump: (51:06)
Biden wants to keep everyone locked up, even young Americans who are at extremely low risk from the virus. He wants to steal the dreams and the futures of our youngest citizens. And when a child loses a year of his life because he’s locked in, and one thing we have found, telehealth has been great and a lot of the … But when you’re looking at a laptop, it’s not nearly as good as sitting in a classroom. That has been determined. It’s not good. It’s not the same. And we’re keeping these kids away from school and that’s something. I mean, it’s great in some instances and telehealth is one of them. But when it comes to school, we’ve learned very strongly, it’s not the same. Which is why I’m going to win. We’re going to win with a record number. I think there’s a vote out there that is incredible.
President Donald Trump: (51:58)
Let me ask you a question. Who has voted by ballot or who has voted so far? Okay. Who is going to vote on Tuesday? Good. It’s a funny thing. We tell our people, “Go out and vote.” We’re not big into the ballot world. We sort of don’t like it. Okay? Because too many tricks get played like they find Trump ballots in a wastepaper basket, they find them in dumpsters, they found some in the river. Lovely. Look, all those ballots. Oh, they happen to be Trump ballots. Now they’re finding them all over the place. 500 incorrect applications get sent to Virginia. The beauty was they sent many ballots to a certain state. They were only defective in one way. They didn’t have the name Trump on it. In other words, if you wanted to vote for Trump, what do you do? I guess you’re supposed to write it out? Then they’ll say, “You can’t do that.” No, it’s a crooked deal. It’s a crooked deal. It’s a very sad thing. We like going to vote.
President Donald Trump: (52:55)
And the other thing, funny, they don’t want to vote. I could say, “Go to vote on Saturday, on Sunday or Monday.” They really want to vote on election day. I like it. And we are going to have a red wave the likes of which has never been seen. And let me give the Democrats the bad news. Their vote is under what they thought they needed.
Four more years. Four more years. Four more years. Four more years. Four more years. Four more years.
President Donald Trump: (53:33)
Thank you. But their votes are under, they’re not performing like they should. They’ll probably drop some of the ballots and sign them real quick. I could just see the governor of Nevada. I’m sure he never did this but, “Get me some ballots. We’re losing, here.” Because they don’t want to have any signature verification in Nevada. The governor, he was a political guy. He ran the political club. So he’s a beauty. So they don’t want to have any verification of a signature. So if they’re losing, they’ll say, “Get me some ballots real quick. I’ll sign them myself.” No.
President Donald Trump: (54:08)
I went to vote. I voted. And I went into a place in Palm Beach and I said … The woman said, “Sir, may I please see your identification?” It’s true. But I wanted that. I mean, I wanted. So I took out a passport. “Sir, do you have any other form of identification?” I said, “Are you serious?” I said, “No.” But I did. I gave her something else. And I sat and I filled out the form. I mean, there was no way you could cheat. There was no way. I mean, it was really good. It was really professional. And other people that come in, it was so nice. And we should have voter ID, by the way, voter ID. The whole country.
President Donald Trump: (54:48)
And thanks to our relentless efforts, only 3% of ER visits nationwide, right? Are related to the virus. So 3% of hospital rooms, emergency rooms, 3% are related right now exactly, just came out last night, 3% to the virus. A lot of people, you read about cases, but now they’re young people, they’re college students, they’re younger than college students. But they love the word case because cases have gone up. They don’t say that it’s a 14 year old kid or that it’s a 20 year old student. I mean, you go under 70 and you go under certain ages and it’s 99.9%. It’s a whole different thing. But they don’t like to talk. But I see it’s always cases are up and people go crazy. No, you live with it and you know what to do. We understand it now. You got to understand it. But we’re making that beautiful turn. And the vaccines are coming.
President Donald Trump: (55:49)
Due to our groundbreaking therapies, the fatality rate is down 85%. Think of that. And our excess mortality rate is 42% lower than Europe. They kept saying, “Germany, Germany, Germany.” First of all, they have different ways of counting. In Germany, if you have a bad heart and you’re ready to die, or if you have cancer and you’re going to be dying soon and you catch COVID, that happens, we mark it down to COVID. Our doctors get more money if somebody dies from COVID. You know that, right? I mean, our doctors, they’re very smart people. So what they do is they say, “I’m sorry, but everybody dies of COVID.” But in Germany and other places, if you have a heart attack or if you have cancer, you’re terminally ill, you catch COVID, they say you died of cancer. You died of heart attack. With us, when in doubt, choose COVID.
President Donald Trump: (56:39)
It’s true. No, it’s true. Now they’ll say, “Oh, it’s terrible what he said.” But that’s true. It’s like $2,000 more. So you get more money. This could only happen to us where cases are now surging. And if you look at Europe, they’re surging despite these draconian lockdowns. They have it locked down and they’re surging. So what happens-
President Donald Trump: (57:03)
… the lockdown, and they’re surging. So what happens is if you get it, stay away. If you get it, you’re going to get better and then you’re going to be immune and it’s a whole thing and it goes away, but the vaccines will help. But don’t take my word for it because we have a video and I wanted to show you a little video, we only do this to people we really like because this thing cost a lot of money. So we have a very little and very quick video, but it’s very descriptive and it talks a little bit about sleepy Joe. Okay.
Gov. Gavin Newsom: (57:31)
Fact is every time I’ve called the President, he’s quickly gotten on the line. When we asked to get support for that mercy ship in Southern California, he was able to direct that in real time.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo: (57:42)
What the federal government did working with states was a phenomenal accomplishment.
Gov. Gavin Newsom: (57:47)
We got 2000 of these field medical sites that are almost all operational now in the state because of his support, and those are the facts.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo: (57:58)
His team has been on it. I know a team when they’re on it and I know a team when they’re not on it. His team is on it. They’ve been responsive late at night, early in the morning.
Gov. Phil Murphy: (58:10)
We are working very well with FEMA Region 2 and with the Army Corps of Engineers building four field hospitals. And that was the decision the President himself took and I’m grateful for it.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo: (58:20)
These were just extraordinary efforts and acts of mobilization and the federal government stepped up, we needed help and they were there.
Gov. Gavin Newsom: (58:32)
He said everything that I could have hoped for. And we had a very long conversation and every single thing he said, they followed through on it.
Gov Michelle Lujan Grisham: (58:42)
We’ve got to have doubled the number of ventilators that we requested to that area of the state. And in fact, we got them in, frankly, short order.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo: (58:51)
Have we lost anymore because we didn’t have a bed, or we didn’t have a ventilator, or we didn’t have healthcare staff? No.
Gov. Gavin Newsom: (59:01)
The President was extending support for new swabs. So a conversation, commitment, promise made promise kept.
Joe Biden: (59:17)
My problem is I voted for NAFTA.
Joe Biden: (59:19)
I’m supporting NAFTA because I think it is a positive thing to do. And I do not pretend to be an expert on international trade matters.
Sen. Bernie Sanders: (59:29)
Trade agreements like NAFTA and permanent normal trade relations with China, which forced the merch and workers to compete against people making pennies an hour has resulted in the loss of 160,000 jobs.
John King: (59:41)
The President is absolutely right when he says that China has been cheating for 25 years and that Bill Clinton didn’t do enough about it, George W. Bush didn’t do enough about it, Barack Obama didn’t do enough about it.
Joe Biden: (59:51)
Rising China is an incredibly positive development for not only China, but the United States and the rest of the world.
Joe Biden: (59:59)
Rising China is a positive, positive development.
Joe Biden: (01:00:03)
It is in our self-interest that China continue to prosper.
Joe Biden: (01:00:07)
We want to see China rise.
Joe Biden: (01:00:09)
China’s a great nation and we should hope for the continued expansion.
Joe Biden: (01:00:14)
China is not our enemy.
Joe Biden: (01:00:16)
We talk about China as our competitor, we should be helping.
Joe Biden: (01:00:20)
The idea that China is going to eat our lunch is bizarre
Joe Biden: (01:00:23)
The idea that they are our competition and they’re going to beat us is bizarre. They’re not bad folks, folks.
Joe Biden: (01:00:32)
China’s not a problem.
Jake Taper: (01:00:34)
Allowing China into the World Trade Organization, which you supported, extending most favored nation status to China, which you supported, those steps allowed China to take advantage of the United States by using our own open trade deals against us. Do you think in retrospect that you were naive about China?
Joe Biden: (01:00:56)
Jake Taper: (01:00:58)
But doesn’t he deserve some credit for that? It’s better, the USMCA is better than NAFTA.
Joe Biden: (01:01:02)
It is better than NAFTA.
Laura Ingram: (01:01:05)
Now, to be fair, maybe Biden’s not telling us because he’s forgotten his own plans. Watch Biden’s staff quickly swoop in to shuffle him along during a quickie escape the basement trip to Pennsylvania.
Joe Biden: (01:01:24)
Okay here’s the deal, one of the things that is important is that… Keep in mind, although they’re going to vote on… [inaudible 01:01:36], I think today.
Laura Ingram: (01:01:40)
That was terrifying.
Joe Biden: (01:01:41)
What kind of country we going to be four more years of George… we going to find ourselves in a position where if Trump gets elected, we’re going to be in a different world.
President Donald Trump: (01:01:53)
I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know what to tell you. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. But that said it all, that’s easier than talking for half hour. It says [inaudible 00:05:26], clue where he is. Where joined by [inaudible 01:02:32] Ben Carson and is incredible wife Candy, Candy Carson. Thank you very much. Thank you Ben [inaudible 01:02:39] great job he does. What a [inaudible 01:02:40] man. Congressional candidate [inaudible 00:05:44], I hear he’s doing great. Paul Young, Paul. That’s great, Paul, I hear it’s going good, you’re winning. I’m hearing good things, you’re going to win. And Erik Esshaki. Erik, thank you Erik. Thank you very much. Good luck, Erik, heard you’re doing really… We need these two guys, please vote for them. And Michigan GOP Chair, Laura Cox, thank you. Are we winning Laura? I see we’re up, we’re just up in the poll by three points. Good, so carry it in. I mean three points, how the hell you beat this guy by three points. Is that a win? I don’t know. Hey, if it’s one vote, we’ll take it, right? We got to win. We got to win. Michigan is very important. Michigan, it’s very important for Michigan that we win.
President Donald Trump: (01:03:38)
For 47 years, Joe Biden betrayed the African-American community. Biden devastated black families with his disastrous 1994 Crime Bill that came up very much in the debate. He called young black men, “Super predators,” and he did it all the time. I gave former prisoners a second chance by signing our landmark Criminal Justice Reform that Biden couldn’t do and Obama couldn’t do. Joe Biden flooded black neighborhoods with illegal foreign labor and I’m providing black neighborhoods with billions of dollars in thanks with our Opportunity Zones, which have turned out to be incredible. Tim Scott, Opportunity Zones have been incredible, what they’ve done for communities and for Hispanic, black workers. Under our Platinum Plan we’ll create 3 million new jobs for black Americans, restore safety to every neighborhood and we’ll deliver school choice to every parent in America. Right? Good.
President Donald Trump: (01:04:43)
And in conclusion, I just want to say, it’s been an honor to be with you, this is incredible. It’s cold out here, it’s cold, I’d say it’s a little cold. But over the years, and over the next four years, we will make America into the manufacturing superpower of the world and we will end the reliance on China once and for all, that’s already started. We will hire more police, increased penalties for assaults on law enforcement, and we will ban deadly sanctuary cities. We will end the big tech monopoly and restore freedom of speech. We will defend religious liberty, the right to life and the right to keep and bear arms. We will maintain America’s unrivaled military might and we will ensure peace through strength.
President Donald Trump: (01:05:40)
We will end surprise medical billing, require price transparency, lower drug prices even more. We have done something nobody’s done, 52 years, last year, drug prices went down, but now they’re going to go down at a very high rate because we’re doing favored nations. The drug companies don’t like me too much, I will tell you. We will protect Social Security and Medicare and we will always protect patients with pre-existing conditions.
President Donald Trump: (01:06:14)
America will land the first woman on the moon and the United States will be the first nation to land an astronaut on Mars. We will stop the radical indoctrination of our students and restore patriotic education to our schools. We will teach our children to love our country, honor our history, and always respect our great American Flag. And we will live by the timeless words of our national motto, “In God we trust.”
President Donald Trump: (01:06:53)
For years, you had a president who apologized for America, now you have a president who is standing up for America and standing up for the great people of Michigan. See now, a lot of times migrants… and standing up for the great people of Morrow, Ohio, Ohio? No it’s Michigan, that’s happened seven times. You can’t do that, you can’t let that happen, you can’t let that happen. We did not come this far and fight this hard only to surrender our country back to the Washington swamp. So get your friends, get your family, get your neighbors and get out to vote, get out to vote. Got to do it. Got a big day, Tuesday. Don’t even do it on Monday, my people said, “Oh, let them go Monday, Sunday. Don’t worry about it, just do it like you like to do it. Just do it. Tuesday’s good.
President Donald Trump: (01:07:50)
On November 3rd, we must finish the job and drain the swamp once and for all, nobody ever said it was going to be that deep. Nobody ever said it was going to be that deep and that vicious, but we’re knocking the hell out of them, they don’t know what the hell is going on [inaudible 01:08:05]. It’s been tough for them too, they never had a thing like this. From Midland to Mackinac, from Lansing to Grand Rapids, and from Battle Creek to right here in Waterford Township, nice, we inherit the legacy of Michigan patriots who gave their blood, sweat, and tears for this beloved nation. This is the state where Henry Ford invented the assembly line, think of that. It’s the place where General Motors, Chrysler and Kellogg’s revolutionized entire industries, what a state. Michigan gave us Motown, the Mustang, and the unrivaled might of the American Midwest. We made America into the single greatest nation in the history of the world and the best is yet to come. Proud citizens like you helped build this country and together we are taking back our country, we are returning power to you, the American people. It’s what I said I was going to do. With your help, your devotion, your drive, we are going to keep on working, we are going to keep on fighting, and we are going to keep on winning, winning, winning. We are one movement, one people, one family, and one glorious nation under God and together with the incredible people of Michigan, we have made America powerful again. We have made America wealthy again. We have made America strong again. We have made America proud again. We have made America safe again. And we will make America great again. Thank you, Michigan, go out and vote. Thank you.
