Campaign Rally in Wilkes Barre,
Pennsylvania Speech by Donald Trump

October 10, 2016

Donald Trump held a campaign rally in the swing state of Pennsylvania at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre on Monday, the day after his second debate with Hillary Clinton.

Wow.

Thank you very much everybody.

I don't know how old this building is but I know one thing: we broke the building's record for attendance, which is pretty, pretty good.

And they have thousands of people outside, and they're pulling in right now, so, should we wait about an hour, or not?

No way, right?

Let's start. They'll fill in as we speak.

So I want to thank you, I want to thank all of the great people of Pennsylvania, I went to school in Pennsylvania. They've taken our jobs out of Pennsylvania, we're gonna be bring them back, folks, believe me. We're bringing 'em back. Oh what these politicians have done to us. Not gonna happen much longer.

I assume you saw the debate last night, everybody was cool. Better believe it.

So a special group, I don't know if you know who I'm talking about, but they have been, I don't know what it is — bikers love Trump. Bikers, right? Bikers. I don't know what it is. I'm riding in these cars and they're passing me going about 150 miles an hour, I say, "Man those guys have guts but they are crazy, right?" But you know they had "Bikers for Trump" and it said "The Deplorable Run for Trump." Who's in here from The Deplorable Run? There're a lot of them. Over a thousand. So there're over a thousand and the bikers are special, and I'll tell you it's great to have them on my side.

You know a lot of times I'll go to an event, I did in Hilton Head, and I did in a few places, and — actually many places — and I'll see hundreds of bikers on these beautiful bikes, oftentimes Harleys, I have to say, oftentimes, but not always. Not always. But I'll see these bikers and, they'll be there, and I always feel so safe with the bikers. They're there, and a lot of times they don't even want to come inside, they just want to make sure I'm safe, can you believe it? They are great people. They are great people. So to the bikers, I love you guys, you're great guys, right? Great guys.

Also, I want to introduce if I could two people that have been unbelievable. They're congressmen. Hard to believe, I mean congressmen. Who likes congressmen, but I like these two congressmen. And we have Congressman Barletta, where is he? Where is he? Where is he? Come here. Congressman Marino, where is he? Come here. And get up here, Senator Sessions and Rudy, get up here please.

Oh, we're gonna make Pennsylvania so rich again, your jobs are coming back. We're going to be ending illegal immigration. We're gonna stop the jobs from pouring out of our country. We're gonna renegotiate our disastrous trade deals, these are deals made by people who don't have a clue. We're going to lower your taxes big league, Hillary wants to increase your taxes by a lot. We're going to reduce regulations, which are killing your companies, and they're leaving, and they're going to Mexico and lots of other places for lots of reasons, but, one of the reasons is a bad reason is called "regulations", they're regulating these companies out of existence, and jobs out of existence. We are going to unleash American energy, including oil, shale, clean coal, and natural gas.

Now [holds up piece of paper] this just came out. This just came out. WikiLeaks! I love WikiLeaks. And, I said "Write a couple of them down."

[reading from paper]

Let's see.

During a speech, Crooked Hillary Clinton, oh, she's crooked folks, she's crooked as a three-dollar bill.

Okay, here's one:

Just came out. "Lock her up" is right. No.

[audience chants of "Lock her up."]

So everybody saw the debate last night, so let me tell you. When I said, "We are going to get a special prosecutor to figure this deal out," right? I have never been so ashamed of this country, as what's gone on with Hillary Clinton. I have never seen anything like it, I have never ever seen anything like it, you have never seen anything like it. Thirty-three thousand emails, 33,000, she deletes 'em, she bleaches 'em, that nobody does because it's such an expensive process. She gets a subpoena, from the United States Congress and after she gets the subpoena she does that but we'll talk about that in a minute, we have to go back to WikiLeaks, oh, WikiLeaks...

[reading from paper]

So, on a speech, made behind closed doors, Crooked Hillary Clinton said that terrorism was not a threat, quote "not a threat" to the nation. No.

[audience boos]

Let me tell you. No.

[audience boos]

Big. Big, big threat.

Terrorism was not a threat. Let me tell you. Terrorism's a big threat, we're riding into something that's very dangerous, and she's allowing thousands and thousands of people to come into this country, and I will tell you something, it's the great Trojan Horse, and we don't want to be part of the era, where we have the great— they're talking about us in 200 years from now okay? As the stupid people that got taken.

[reading from paper]

Then over here, let's see. Clinton bragged about her great relationship with the financial industry — that's where she gets all the money. In Florida they say she's gonna put ads on, 50 to 1. And I think we're gonna win. I think we're gonna win.

[reading from paper]

Hillary admitted — oh this is a beauty — during one of these secret speeches, amazing how nothing's secret today when you talk about the internet. Nothing. Hillary admitted that ISIS could infiltrate with the refugees. Great. Then why is she letting so many people into our country?

[audience boos]

Why?

[reading from paper]

She said Wall Street can police itself, alright, that's who cares. Big bank, Clinton said needed Wall Street money in order to successfully, she needs, says here, quote, "needs Wall Street money in order to successfully run her campaigns". Okay. So what else is new? You know I said to her yesterday I said "Listen, I'm gonna have over a hundred million dollars in my campaign" right? So, meaning I don't have to take money from all these characters that want everything 'cause that's what's happening. So, she's out there, and, she got a lot of money, she made $200, $250 million dollars while she's in office, okay? Figure THAT one out. Figure THAT one out.

[audience boos]

So I said, "So look I'm putting up $100 million — it's gonna end up being more than that — but I'm putting up all this money." And I'm also getting tremendous amounts of money from people, $61 dollars apiece, a record set, no other Republican's ever done that. No Republican. Which tells me that we have a great movement going on. Right? That's what a great movement is. But, I said to Hillary "Why didn't you put up $10 million, or $20 million, $25 mill— put up some of the money that you ripped off when you're a Secretary of State, when you're in the Senate." Think of it. From the time they left the White House, 'til now, $250 million dollars. I said "Put some of the money into your campaign. Don't get it from these companies that all want favors." So let's see what happens with that.

[reading from paper]

So, let's see. Speech behind closed doors Hillary said in order to be successful politically — oh, this is bad one — "You need to have both a public and private position on public policy." Awww...

[audience boos]

In other words, we have to tell you one thing and we have to tell the bankers another thing. Oh, that's good.

Another closed-door speech which got a lot of money, she wanted to have "Open borders..."

[audience boos]

"... and open trade..." —trade with anybody, there go the rest of your jobs, your jobs are 40% gone now anyway, there go the rest of your jobs.

She wants — in one of the other speeches — "Universal health care coverage, single-payer system." She wants it to be like Canada. But the people in Canada, with money, when they have an operation, they come down to this country, because they have got a lot problems up in Canada, so she wants to go. Forget it.

[reading from paper]

Here's an interesting one. Sidney Blumenthal.

[audience boos]

Do you remember when Ambassador Stevens, in Benghazi, was calling, and writing, and email— they were desperate for help. They say like 600 times, right? The only one she was speaking to is Sidney Blumenthal, who's a sleaze. He's a sleaze. 'fact Obama, wanted her restricted, that she couldn't speak — that's probably one of the reasons she wanted to have her private server, you know, she wanted to go, 'cause she promised Obama that she wouldn't be talking to sleazy Sidney. So Blumenthal writes, it's a quote, this just came out a little while ago, I have to tell you this.

[reading from paper]

"One important point has been universally acknowledged by the nine previous reports about Benghazi." This is Sidney Blumenthal, the only one she was talking to. She wasn't talking to Ambassador Stevens, even the 600 calls, probably desperation.

[reading from paper]

"The attack was almost certainly preventable." Benghazi. "Clinton was in charge of the State Department, and it failed to protect the United States personnel at an American consulate in Libya." He meant Benghazi. "If the GOP wants to raise that as a talking point against her, it is legitimate." In other words she's now admitting that they could've done something about Benghazi. This just came out a little while ago.

[audience boos]

What a group we have. What a group.

[audience chants of "Lock her up."]

What a group we have. So we're gonna do a lot, we're working very hard, we have 28 days, November 8th is the big day, we're gonna get out, we're gonna win, I'm gonna make, three, four, five stops a day, I may be limping across that finish line but we're gonna get across that finish line, and I figure, I figure, that that final week maybe we do six stops a day and we'll call 'em get-out-the-vote stops, if you don't mind we'll make 'em a lot shorter than what we're doing. Just get out, because we gotta get you out to vote. And honestly folks, you know I went to school in Philadelphia and I love Philadelphia. I love Philadelphia, and I hope we're gonna do great in Philadelphia and I went to school there, I love the school, I loved everything, but I just hear such reports about Philadelphia. And we have to make sure we're protected. We have to make sure the people of Philadelphia are protected. That the vote counts are a 100%. Everybody wants that. But I hear these horror shows. I hear these horror shows. And we have to make sure that this election is not stolen from us, and is not taken away from us.

And everybody knows what I'm talking about. And this crooked media, you talk about Crooked Hillary, they're worse than she is.

[audience boos]

[mixed audience chants]

I'm telling you. They are so dishonest. Without the media, without the media, Hillary Clinton couldn't be elected dog catcher, I mean that. It's true. True.

Rudy knows, I only tell the truth. I only tell the truth.

You know they do focus groups after the debate and we won, every poll. We won — did you see those polls? Every poll. 80/20, 90/10. I'd get a list, but we don't want to [indistinct] but, every poll. But CNN did a focus group.

[audience boos]

And by the way — Frank Luntz did a focus group, and the focus group, that one we liked, Frank Luntz, good guy. 18 to 4, in favor of Trump, right?

CNN did a focus group. Unfortunately, oh, it's so sad, they got caught trying to convince people and find the right people so they could give a phony vote. CNN is a disgrace. Disgrace.

[audience boos]

Oh they just turned off their camera.

[indistinct audience chants]

So funny they just turned off their camera — I love it!

[audience cheers]

I love it, aw these dishonest people. They're dishonest. But you know, when you look at 'em, and in fact if somebody, get me, get me a, get me a list. Where's the great Dan Scavino? Get me a list, I'll tell you about the list, bring it up here, right away. Bring it up here, I'll tell you. But we had a good time last night, and they just announced, we had 69 million people watching which is just amount, they say, the most ever to watch the second debate, which is fantastic. Which is fantastic. And even the bad media admitted, you know when I say "The line in the sand"? And she said "I wasn't Secretary of State" — unfortunately she was! She lied! Again, she lied.

[audience boos]

Hillary lied. But it wasn't as big a lie as the emails, don't you agree? No no no, she lied. She's a liar. And she lied, and she lied when she said that she didn't say that the TPP, Trans Pacific Partnership, was the gold standard, right? She lied. Because she endorsed it, she wanted it a 100%, then she heard me speaking about it, and say they don't control, monitor, manipulation and all the ways that these countries take advantage of. And she went against it temporarily. But if she ever won, she'll approve that so fast. And nothing's as bad as NAFTA, but you know what that's gonna be close, it's gonna be a disaster. It's gonna be a disaster, and — so she lied. She said, "I never said it was the gold standard." Unfortunately it was the gold standard, so... one of those things. One of those things.

So folks, it's so important, that we get out, in November, that we vote. So we get rid of these liars, we get rid of these incompetent people, we get rid of the Hillary Clintons of the world.

[audience cheers]

And you know I'm with the Congressman, and we're backstage, and a poll came out like we're down three points in the state of Pennsylvania, and they're going, and these guys are pros. You may not like 'em because they're politicians but I like 'em anyway. Despite they're being in politics. But you know they said, "We can't believe it. Because everybody in Pennsylvania wants Trump. You know." And...

[audience cheers]

And we get crowds like this everywhere. But we get 'em in Ohio, we get 'em in Florida we're doing unbe— we have one in Florida coming up 25,000 minimum. Minimum. Two days. But we're getting 'em. But they just said, they said "There's no way we're 3 down." Even the polls are crooked, I'm telling you. Look, we're in a rigged system, folks. We're in a rigged system. The only way we can un-rig it is get to the polls, but we gotta make sure, they're honest polls, we gotta make sure. But I think November 8th is gonna be Brexit.

[audience cheers]

When I— you know when I—

[audience applauds]

When I, I have a lot of property over there, so they asked me about Brexit. And I said, "Well, I think it's gonna pass." Meaning they wanted independence. The UK wanted to get out, they didn't want people pouring into their country who nobody knew where they came from, right? So I said "No I think it's gonna pass." Huge headlines: "Trump Says It's Gonna Pass" Remember Obama went over there? He says you're gonna put 'em on the back of the line, it's never gonna pass. And if it does you're gonna put 'em in the back of the line, I think he helped it pass, you wanna know the truth. So they said it's gonna pass, and I said it's gonna pass, but it was given very very little chance of passage. Very very little chance. And then what happened is it passed easily, right? So the polls were all really wrong. But big league wrong. We're just a little tiny bit behind, here, and the polls were just like unbelievable. So it passed, and nobody said Trump said it was gonna happen. I hate that, you know, I hate that. But, what is gonna happen, I think the state of Pennsylvania, we're gonna win so big, I just think it— I think we're gonna win it so big.

[audience cheers]

And, we're gonna spend a lot of time in the suburbs over the next coupla weeks, the suburbs of Philadelphia, because we gotta get that vote, we wanna get that vote. I know I got your vote, right? Alright?

[audience cheers]

So we're gonna get that vote, and we'll get it fast. Where are those polls? Bring 'em up here. Dan Scavino everybody, the famous Dan Scavino. Lemme see. Did anybody hear of Dan? He's become quite famous, in social media.

[Dan hands Donald his iPhone]

Alright, you ready? So it says here, in... ahh. Drudge is a great guy, right? Drudge. What a great man. Trump 70, Clinton 30. This is [indistinct]

Variety, you know that's the show business people, oh they been— they're not gonna like this. These people don't like Trump, you know the show biz. Trump 64, see this guy doesn't stop, look at this guy, Trump 64, Clinton 36.

[audience cheers]

Oh listen to this. Time Magazine. Now do you think Time Magazine likes me, even though I've been on their cover like 7 or 8 times. They're likin' us. Time Magazine, no fan of Trump, 89 to 11.

[audience cheers]

Fox. Fox. 85 to 13, where are the other couple of points?

[audience cheers]

Oh here's a good one, well they're slightly conservative, Breitbart. 93 to 7, would you say that?

[audience cheers]

Fox Seattle, 79 to 16. Detroit, 84 to 16, get the hell outta here Dan.

[audience cheers]

So, we're gonna have — is there any more fun to be than at a Trump rally, in all fairness, right? Really? So, here's what I'm gonna tell. You know I spent a lot of time with Senator Sessions, who's the king of the borders, he's the king, one of the great men, one of the most highly respected men in the United States Senate. And they go to him, and I remember Ted Cruz — who endorsed me recently which was very nice — but I remember that Ted Cruz has such respect for Senator Sessions and one of the reasons is nobody knows more about the border than Senator Sessions, and we were talking a little while ago, and we have people coming in, and we just got ICE. Two days ago ICE — these are great people by the way, they're not allowed to do their job, but they're great people — they just endorsed me, because they want to do their job. The border patrol. The border patrol just endorsed me, the border patrol just endorsed me, and, I will tell you, such an honor, 16,500 border patrol agents, they endorsed Trump, first time they've ever done it. And then very importantly, Sheriff Joe from Arizona, we love Joe. And I told New Hampshire, which has a tremendous problem with heroin, and other places, but New Hampshire was the first state I went in, then we went on a run like people haven't seen very easily but I told New Hampshire, very very strongly, I told New Hampshire, if I win, we're gonna solve this problem, of the poison flowing in to Pennsylvania, to New York, to New England, to all of these different places, to Ohio, we have a big problem... to Florida. We're gonna stop the poison, and to do that, we're gonna build a wall...

[audience cheers]

Who is going to pay for the wall?

[audience shouts: "Mexico!"]

Who?

[audience shouts: "Mexico!"]

They don't know it yet, but they're paying for the wall. 'kay? They don't know. Nah, they're great, I was with a few of our friends, we went to Mexico two months ago, we had a great meeting with the President and he's a good guy, and we'll work at that, everybody's gonna be happy but right now it's a very unfair highway going in. It's a highway going in, and there's no highway going out. Our jobs, our money, our wealth, is going there. A friend of mine who builds plants, he's the biggest. He builds plants, that's what he does. If you said "build an apartment" maybe he wouldn't do so well. But he builds the best plants in the world. Biggest and the best. And I said "How are you doing?" and you might have heard me say this I think it's incredible, and frankly it's terrible in a certain way, he said "Donald I'm doing great. The business is great." I said "Good. How's it in the United States?" "Not very good." "Well where is it good?" He said "Mexico." He said "It's the 7th wonder of the world." He said "It's the most incredible thing you've ever seen. We are building some of the biggest, most sophisticated plants in the world." Now the people are coming out of Michigan — Ford announced, as you know, Ford just announced that they're moving their entire building of small cars to Mexico.

[audience boos]

Out of Michigan.

That's on top of a two-and-a-half billion dollar plant that they built three years ago, that I've been complaining about for three years. And that's why I think we're gonna win the state of Michigan, because I've been complaining about this for years and these other guys, like Hillary, she started complaining about two days ago. She's not gonna do anything. So, we're gonna create strong borders, and we're not gonna let our businesses go and when Ford says "We're leaving" or when Carrier Air Conditioning says they're leaving the great state of Indiana where we have a wonderful, wonderful Vice Presidential nominee, Mike Pence, great guy. A great guy, and by the way a totally loyal person, this guy, he called me up, "Do you mind if I put out a statement?" "No. What, what would you like to put out, there's, absolutely put it out, Mike." This guy is so loyal. So good. And such a terrific person, and his family, Karen, his wife, and his family is amazing. It was one of our really good choices, do you agree with that? One of our really good choices. And he's done a great job in Indiana, Triple-A rating, lower the taxes, done really a good job, unlike this guy, Tim Kaine.

[audience boos]

Do you know in his first week, as Governor of Virginia, he signed a $4 billion dollar tax increase. This is what you have. And Hillary Clinton wants to raise your taxes. But he signed a $4 billion dollar tax increase. So here's what's gonna happen folks. When these companies like Carrier Air Conditioner think they're gonna leave Indiana, or leave Pennsylvania, or leave Ohio, or leave any of your states, they can go between states, I can't get involved, okay? If you don't mind. You gotta— that's up to you and your Governor and all of the people. But if they think they're gonna go out, and they're gonna make air conditioners, move to Mexico, build their new plant, and sell those air conditioners, now through a very strong, powerful border, and they're gonna sell those air conditioners and they've left 1400 people go in Indianapolis — not gonna happen that way. Not gonna happen. There will be consequences. They will pay a 35% tax on every air conditioner that comes across the border. And when they know that, they won't leave Indiana, and these companies won't leave Pennsylvania, and they're not gonna because their numbers don't work anymore, okay? We're gonna stop them so easily. And I've been watching these politicians go through this for years. I've been watching them give low-interest loans, I've been watching them give ZERO-interest loans. These companies don't even need the money most of 'em. They take the money. There're a couple of instances where geniuses with great lawyers gave 'em money, and then they moved anyway because they didn't have any restrictive governance in the con— I mean the whole thing is crazy. But, what's going to happen is once they find out, they're not gonna leave, okay? They're not gonna leave.

So, we're gonna have strong borders, we're gonna have a wall, the wall is gonna stop people from coming into our country illegally. Along with our border patrol and ICE. The wall is going to stop poison — drugs — poison from ruining our youth and poisoning our youth and other people. And, you know I have something I always like doing. I read this, when I'm in a good mood. I'm in such a great mood. You know, I wish those cameras would show this crowd. Because if they would people would be amazed. They never show the crowd. They never show the crowd. Show the crowd! See they, they don't want to turn around. Look at the cameras, they face straight. They face straight. My wife is always going, "How is the crowd?" She said "It sounded big. But I never see it." They never show the crowd. Because you know what? They don't want us to win, and they don't show these crowds, but you look at these crowds, Bernie Sanders never even came close. And he was second, by the way. Hey fellas, turn the cameras around, seriously, way up there in the upper decks. Show the crowds.

[audience cheers]

But they just don't want to do it. They keep that camera pinned to my face, they don't even want to show what's behind me. They keep that camera pinned to my face. They are so dishonest.

[repeated chants of "CNN Sucks!"]

You know? If Crooked Hillary Clinton were up here and they had this kind of a crowd, the cameras would be showing the crowd all day long. That's why we have to win this election. We have to take it away from these dishonest characters. So here's the story, folks. 's true. Every nigh—, I go home, my wife said "How big was the crowd?" She said "It sounded huge." I said "Yeah they have like what, 16,000 people." So, she said "Yeah it sounded that." I said "Didn't you see it?" "No they never showed the crowd." 's always my face. My face. I don't wanna sh— I don't wanna show my face. I want the crowd. But they never move the cam—

You know I used to think they couldn't, I figure they're brand-new equipment, they couldn't, because, mechanically, they didn't move. And then, when they're— but, unfortunately when we had a protester, the first time, right? You know what I'm gonna say. Those cameras they turned like a pretzel, the steel, wah, wah!

[audience cheers]

Good.

's true. They look like pretzels. I never sue— I never knew that steel could be bent in that kind of a, configure— Aw they're dishonest, but, because of the fact that we have lots of problems, but one of the problems we have is a tremendous illegal immigration problem. And now Hillary Clinton wants people to come in from Syria at a rate — think of this —

[audience boos]

They're coming to your community folks. At a rate of 550% more than Obama, and he's letting 'em in by the thousands, and we have no idea who the hell they are.

[audience boos]

So, I have this, has anyone heard The Snake 'cause people love it but, okay who has hear— who has NOT heard it? Who HAS heard it?

[audience cheers]

Should we do it, or not?

[audience cheers]

Huh?

It's so good. So you think of this in terms of illegal immigration in terms of people coming into our country that we have no idea who they are, and in terms of the fact that lots of bad things will happen. And again, before I start, I have a big heart, you have a big heart. We all have big hearts. We want to see good things happen, right? So we're gonna build safe zones in Syria, we're gonna have the gulf states pay for it because we owe right now $20 trillion dollars it's doubled during Obama's term and the bad part, it doubled and we didn't do anything, we didn't fix our roads, our bridges, our tunnels, our hospitals, our airports are a mess, they're like third world. So we, we have totally too much debt, and we didn't fix anything, we got problems, folks. But we'll get it fixed, if we get elected. Otherwise, we're going down. So, this is a case for illegal immigration, and it was written by Al Wilson. Anybody ever heard of Al Wilson? And it wasn't meant for this, it was a song. But I saw it once and I thought it was very apropos. So this is, thinking about illegal immigration. And what's going to happen as sure as you are — sorry we have no seats — standing there.

On a way to work one morning
Down the path, along the lake
A tender-hearted woman
Saw a poor, half-frozen snake
His pretty colored skin
Had been all frosted with the dew
"Poor thing," she said, "I'll take you in,
And I'll take care of you."

"Take me in, oh tender woman.
Take me in for heaven sake.
Take me in, oh tender woman."
Sighed the broken snake

She wrapped him up all cozy
In a comforter of silk
And laid him by the fire side
With some honey, and some milk
She hurried home from work that night
And as soon as she arrived
She found that pretty snake she'd taken in
Had been revived

"Take me in, oh tender woman.
Take me in for heaven sake.
Take me in, oh tender woman."
Sighed the broken snake

She clutched him to her bosom
"You're so beautiful," she cried.
"But if I hadn't brought you in by now,
You surely might have died."
She stroked his pretty skin again
And kissed, and held him tight

But instead of saying "thank you"
The snake gave her a vicious bite.
"Take me in, oh tender woman.
Take me in for heaven sake.
Take me in, oh tender woman."
Sighed the vicious snake

TRUMP [commenting]: Vicious, vicious, vicious.

"I saved you," cried the woman
"And you've bit me, heavens why?
You know your bite is poisonous
And now I'm going to die."
"Oh shut up, silly woman,"
Said the reptile, with a grin.
"You knew damn well I was a snake
Before you took me in."

[audience cheers]

True.

And then we have our very incompetent politicians in Washington taking everybody in, and honestly it's a very sad thing to behold and to watch. Very very very sad.

[pointing from podium]

Oops! Is there a doctor in the house? Are you okay? Thank you very much. Thank you, you okay?

You know we have people waiting here for 7, 8 hours. I love you darling, I love you. Look at her.

She's tougher than all of us. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Thank you.

Look at that guy over there. Wow!

[Trump steps away from the podium, leaving the frame.]

[audience cheers]

[camera tracks right, bringing Trump, who's applauding, back into frame]

Wow!

[indistinct audience chant]

Bring him up!

[audience cheers]

[A member of Trump's event staff carries a young boy, who looks strikingly like a miniature version of Donald, and hands him over to Trump. Trump takes him in his arms, gives him a kiss on the cheek, and carries the boy to the podium.]

trump-and-lookalike-child

TRUMP TO BOY: What's your, what's your name?

BOY: Name.

TRUMP: Now, he's supposed to look like Donald Trump, but he's actually much too good looking. You are really handsome. Are you having a good time tonight?

BOY: Night.

TRUMP: Where's your daddy? And your mommy. Right? You wanna go back— Do you wanna go back to them or do you want to stay with Donald Trump.

BOY: Trump.

[audience cheers]

[Trump hands boy back to event staff and returns to the podium to prolonged cheering.]

Beautiful. What a beautiful boy. What a beautiful boy. Thank you.

[audience chants of "Trump! Trump! Trump!"]

I'll tell you what folks, we better win on November 8th. You know, one of these, one of these pundits said to me — 'cause this is a movement, there's never been anything like this they say — many of 'em said, Bill O'Reilly said, I have a lot of respect for Bill O'Reill— tough guy, smart guy. He said "It's the single greatest political phenomena he's seen in his lifetime." That covers a lot of territory. And others have said the same thing. And they said, "Really it doesn't matter, if you win or if you lo— doesn't matter, because, what it—" I said, "Let me tell you a little secret. If we don't win, this is the greatest waste of time, energy, and money, that I will ever do in my life. Believe me. Believe me." We're not doing this to come in second, folks. And if we come in second, your second amendment's in trouble, because she wants to decimate it.

[audience boos]

And we're gonna fix by the way, you know we're gonna do something that people haven't done. We're gonna fix our inner cities, we're gonna help our Latino Americans and our African Americans, we're gonna help them. 45% of African American youth lives in poverty. 58% of African American youth don't have jobs. More than 3,000 people have been shot in the city of Chicago since the beginning of the year, think of that, since January 1st, 3,000, that means it's like a war zone. The Democrats, like Crooked Hillary Clinton...

[audience boos]

... have run the inner cities for 50, 60, 70, even a hundred years, uninterrupted. They produced only more joblessness, failing schools and rising crime. Those African American suffering in our country, and I have to tell you this, they're suffering. They're suffering. You got no jobs, inner cities, you got no jobs, you have no safety, you have no education the schools are horrible, I say to them, "What the hell do you have to lose? I'm gonna fix the inner cities! I'm gonna fix 'em. Gonna fix 'em. Vote for Trump."

We've spent $6 billion — think of this, think of this. We spend billions and billions of dollars on different things, we don't get our money's worth. But we've spent, in the Middle East $5 to $6 trillion dollars. What do we have? It's worse now. Had we done nothing in the Middle East it's much better than it is now. You wouldn't have the migration. Look at the mistakes that Hillary Clinton made. Libya, Iraq — they created ISIS. Because the way they got out of Iraq whether you like going into the war or not, and despite what you read from these dishonest people I was against going into Iraq by the way. But whether you were in or not, it was somewhat with the surge stabilized. And they announced to the world, that they're gonna take everybody out real fast, get 'em out, get 'em out, get 'em out. And a vacuum was created, and guess who came out of the vacuum? Who came out of the vacuum? ISIS. That was Hillary Clinton, and our great genius President Barack Obama. Uy yigh yigh.

[audience boos]

And now what he does, all he wants to do is campaign. Remember he said, "Donald Trump will never win the Republican primary." Alright so we've won that one. Right? Isn't it too bad, isn't it too bad that we don't have stronger leadership on both sides, on both sides. I mean, you know, you have people that can't fix a budget, but then they start talkin' about their nominee, but they can't fix the budget? Isn't it soo s— isn't it really sad that we don't have stronger leadership on both sides? But that'll change if we win on November 8th, believe me it's gonna change fast. Gonna change, folks.

But why is it that the President of the United States, we've got no growth, you saw GNP, you saw that? GDP. You saw that right? It's so bad. Like, 1%. That means we're not growing. Do you know if China goes down to 7% or 8% it's like considered a national tragedy. Here we are, hovering at nothing. Our jobs are gone, we have bad jobs. They have a phony employment rate. Bad jobs numbers last week. Did you see those bad jobs numbers? And that's the last jobs report before the election, I was shocked. I was so surprised that they let that happen. 'cause it's all rigged. It's all rigged. But let me just tell you. We're gonna do something that's gonna be so amazing, I'm gonna fight harder than anybody has ever fought for the American people. Hard.

[audience cheers]

We're gonna help the Latinos, trapped in poverty, we're gonna fight for school choice, we're gonna fight to end Common Core, which we'll do very quickly and bring education locally. And Hillary Clinton can't do those things 'cause she's totally run by the teachers union. Which are wonderful people by the way but they have total control. So you can't have choice, and you can't end Common Core, if you're Hillary Clinton you can't do it because you're controlled by the teachers. Just like she's controlled by Wall Street. So what we're gonna do are things that haven't been done, and these things are gonna be wonderful.

We have a military that's depleted. We have to build up our military. We have to. We have no choice.

[audience cheers]

We have to take care of our great veterans we're not taking care of our veterans, not taking care of 'em.

We're going to save your second amendment, we're going to terminate Obamacare and replace it.

We're going to have the largest tax cut since Ronald Reagan. Remember this, hers are going up.

We are gonna do things, that are going to make you so proud of this country again. You're gonna be so proud. You're gonna go to the polls, and you're gonna go even home tonight, and you're going to say, to your husband, to your wife, to your children, to whoever listens, "I had a great time." But you're gonna look back in ten years, and 15 and 20 years and 25 years, and you're gonna say, "This was one of the most important nights." More importantly you're gonna say "November 8th, the single most important vote you've ever cast, is gonna be cast November 8th."

[audience cheers]

[chants of "Donald Trump! Donald Trump! Donald Trump!"]

[chants of "USA! USA! USA!"]

[Trump gets a sign from a supporter reading "Trump Digs Coal"]

[audience cheers]

She wants to put our miners out of business.

[audience boos]

Not gonna happen. Gonna be just the opp— gonna be clean coal. We're gonna have all forms of energy. We're gonna have all forms of energy. We're gonna have everything. But we're gonna take care of our miners. We're gonna take care of our steel workers. We're gonna not let the EPA destroy our companies for natural gas and shale and all other things. Not gonna let it happen. We're not gonna let it happen.

So you're gonna go home, and you're gonna say "Great evening, great evening," but you're gonna look back at that vote, and you're gonna say "That was a very very important day, that that was the greatest vote I've ever cast, because that's when our country started turning around. That's when our country started turning around."

And you're gonna be proud of your country again, and hopefully you're gonna be very proud of your President, and you're gonna see things happen, that have never happened before. We're going to make great trade deals, we're going to have our strong military, and hopefully we're not going to have to use it. But it's called Peace. Through. Strength.

[audience cheers]

And we're gonna have our borders back again. And people are gonna come into our country, but they're going to come in legally. They are going to come in — we're going to have a big beautiful door. But they're going to come in legally through a process. And it's not gonna be a process now where people are waiting in line for ten years and they don't move, and yet people come right across the border, so unfair. We're going to have a fair process. And we want people to come in, is that correct? We want people, but they have to come in legally.

And we're going to see immediate change, and that's what you need. Hillary Clinton is not about change. Hillary Clinton has been doing this stuff for 30 years.

[audience boos]

And I said to her last night, I said to her last night, I said, "You know Hillary, you talk about this thing, and that thing, and oh gee, Donald's got some great tax deal," but all her friends have the same thing. All her friends. I said "Hillary, you were a United States Senator, why didn't you do something about it?" She's not gonna do anything about anything, it's just talk. And you saw it and I said, "When she was a Senator she said she was gonna do things," she never did a thing, it only got worse. That's what's going to happen with our country, folks.

So here's the story. You go out, early vote, do whatever you have to do, but you go out, on November 8th. And you vote. Because so many things, we are going to appoint, remember this, people don't talk about it. Justice Scalia passed away. Great man. Great Justice. We are going to appoint great people who believe in our constitution to the United States Supreme Court, people that believe in our second amendment, to the United States Supreme Court.

[audience cheers]

This election day, you have one magnificent chance to deliver justice for every forgotten man, woman and child in this country. You have 29 days — can you believe it. This started on June 16th of last year, coming down the escalator. To make every dream you ever dreamed for your country to come true. On November 8th, the arrogance of Washington DC will come face to face with the righteous verdict of the American voter. It's about time.

[audience cheers]

We are going to smash the Washington establishment, and open it up to each and every American, the way it's supposed to be.

[audience cheers]

Wouldn't it be nice if some of our politicians fought the special interests, instead of fighting me and you. The sad truth is, a lot of establishment politicians simply don't believe in protecting our borders, or fixing our trade deals, or putting America first, but we are going to put America first.

[audience cheers]

I'm going to fight for every citizen, of every background, from every stretch of this nation and I'm going to fight to bring us all together as Americans, we are a divided country now. Imagine what our country could accomplish, if we started working together as one people, under one God, saluting one American flag.

[audience cheers]

[chants of "USA! USA! USA!"]

You're going to look back at this rally for the rest of your life. You're going to remember this day. This is a movement like you've never seen before and you will never see it again if it doesn't happen on November 8th it's never going to happen for our country, believe me, it will never happen again.

We are going to make history together, you're going to look back at this election and say this is by far, and I say it again and again, the most important vote, by far, that you've ever cast. We're going to vote to make our country safe again.

[audience cheers]

We're going to vote to make our country wealthy again.

[audience cheers]

We are going to vote on November 8th to make our country great again.

Thank you very much, God bless you, I love you. Thank you. Thank you.
