Donald Trump held a rally in Manheim, Pennsylvania at Spooky Nook Indoor Sports Complex and delivered one of his best campaign speeches. The full transcript is below.
Thank you everybody. Thank you.
We are going to make America great again.
We are. I'm thrilled to be here tonight. Beautiful city. Mannheim. And I'll tell you what, we're gonna win the great state of Pennsylvania. I went to school in Pennsylvania. We are going to win Pennsylvania. We're going to win back the White House and we are going to be so happy. We are going to be so happy and we are going to again be proud of our country. We will be proud. We're going to take on the corrupt media, the powerful lobbyists, and the special interests that have stolen your jobs, your factories and your future. And that's exactly what happened. And we're going to stop Hillary Clinton from continuing to raid the industry from your state for her profit. Hillary Clinton has collected millions of dollars from the same global corporations shipping your jobs and your dreams to other countries. You know it and everybody else knows it. That's why Clinton, if she ever got the chance, would 100% approve TransPacific Partnership, a total disastrous trade deal. She called the deal "the gold standard." The TPP will bring economic devastation to Pennsylvania and our campaign is America's one and only chance to stop that and lots of other bad things that are happening to our country. And she lied about the gold standard the other night at the debate. She says she didn't say it. She said it. And we want to stop the TransPacific Partnership, and if we don't, billions — and remember this. If we don't stop it, billions and billions of jobs and wealth will be vacuumed right out of Pennsylvania and sent to these other countries just like NAFTA was a disaster. This will be a disaster. Frankly I don't think it'll be as bad as NAFTA. It can't get any worse than that. Signed by Bill Clinton. All of us here in this massive room tonight can prevent this from happening. Together we will stop TPP and we can end the theft of American jobs and prosperity. One man — and folks we have to do it. It's time. It's time we bring our country back. It's time we act like intelligent people. It's time that we don't let Mexico and all of these other countries take our jobs and that's what they're doing. You look here, the miners. Look at the way they've been treated. We are going to protect our miners. We are going to protect our steelworkers. We are going to protect our factories and our manufacturers.
Now look I knew one man — I'm not a big fan. But one man who knew the dangers and the dangers of TPP was Bernie Sanders. Crazy Bernie. He was right about one thing. Only one thing, and that was trade. And he was right about it because he knew we were getting ripped off but he wouldn't be able to do anything about it. We're gonna do a lot about it. We're gonna have those highways running in the opposite direction. We're gonna have a lot of trade, but it's gonna come in to our country. We are going to start benefiting our country. Because right now it's a one way road to trouble. Our jobs leave us, our money leaves us. With Mexico we get the drugs. They get the cash. That simple. And by the way, by the way, we're gonna have a very, very powerful, a very very strong southern border. And we're gonna have drugs stop pouring into our country.
And we will build the wall — we are going to stop the drugs from pouring into our country and poisoning our youth, and plenty of other people. And we're gonna help all of the people in our country who are so horribly addicted to what's coming in. But we're going to stop it and we're going to stop it fast, and who is going to pay for the wall?
Mexico! [crowd shouts]
One hundred percent. They may not know it yet, but they're paying. Believe me, they're paying. They haven't figured that one out yet.
Hillary Clinton is controlled by global special interests. She's on the opposite side of Bernie on the trade issue. She's totally on the opposite side of Bernie.
A new audiotape that has surfaced just yesterday from another one of Hillary's high roller fundraisers. Shows her demeaning and mocking Bernie Sanders and all of his supporters.
And you know? I'll tell you something. We have a much bigger movement than Bernie Sanders ever had. True. It's true. We have much bigger crowds than Bernie Sanders ever had. It's true. And we have a more important movement than Bernie Sanders ever had, because, we're going to save our country, okay? We're gonna save our country. But I can tell you that Bernie Sanders would have left a great, great legacy had he not made the deal with the devil. He would've, he really would've left a great legacy. Now he shows up and 120 people come in to hear him talk. Bernie Sanders would've left a great legacy had he not made the deal. Had he held his head high and walked away. Now he's on the other side perhaps from us, but we want to get along with everybody, and we will, we're going to unite the country. But what Bernie Sanders did to his supporters was very, very unfair, and they're really not his supporters any longer. And they are not going to support Hillary Clinton. I really believe a lot of those people are coming over, and largely because of trade, college education, lots of other things. But largely because of trade. They're coming over to our side. You watch. You watch. Especially after Hillary mocks him, and mocks all of those people by attacking him and his supporters as living in their parents' basements and trapped in dead-end careers. That's not what they are. She describes many of them as "ignorant, and they want the United States to be more like Scandinavia, but that half the people don't know what that means," in a really sarcastic tone. 'cause she's a sarcastic woman. To sum up, and I'll tell you the other thing, she's an incompetent woman, and I've seen it. She's an incompetent woman. Just take a look at what she touches. It never works out. And you watch. Her run for the presidency will never, ever work out, 'cause we can't let it work out. To sump up: Hillary Clinton thinks Bernie Sanders supporters are hopeless and ignorant basement dwellers.
Then of course she thinks people who vote for and follow us are deplorable and irredeemable. I don't think so. I don't think so. We have the smartest people. We have the sharpest people. We have the most amazing people. And you know in all of the years of this country they say even the pundits, most of 'em are not worth the ground they're standing on — some of that ground could be wealthy ground, good ground, but most of these people say that they have never seen the phenomenon like what is going on. We have crowds like this wherever we go. We have these massive crowds, and some call it the greatest phenomenon they've ever seen politically in their lives, and I think that's what it is. But remember this. One of them said to me not so long ago, it doesn't matter if you win or lose. What you've done is amazing. You know what I said? "Forget it. Forget it. Because if we don't win on November 8, first of all I have tens and tens of millions of dollars. Nobody else does. I put my own money into this. Plus we have small supporters and a limited number of people that just want to help the Republican Party. But I have put self funding in to a level that they haven't seen maybe ever maybe for many, many years. And I'll tell you what. And the money is the least of it. I put a lot of energy — we put a lot of heart and soul, all of us. I know some of you people get here at 12:00 o'clock in the afternoon for this and earlier. Right? I know, I know. I know. Here's the good news. When you leave, is it worth it? Is it worth it? But, if we don't win on November 8, I will say "I don't care what they write. I don't care if they have to give us a lot of credit. I think they have to give us credit. I will consider it a tremendous waste of time, energy and money." Believe me. Because if we don't get there, we're not going to be able to do the job. And we're gonna be doing something for this country that this country has needed for many, many years. We are going to do something so spectacular — you're gonna be so proud of your country once again and you're not proud of your country now. You're certainly not proud of your leader. How about last week? Are you proud of your leader?
How about two weeks ago? $400 million in cash going to Iran. Right? Remember the hostages. And then he lied about that, he said "No no, it's not for hostages." But the hostages couldn't leave until they got the cash. But it turned out to be wrong. Because now it's looking like it's — and get this. See the corners over there? You couldn't fit 'em in here. $1.7 billion in cash they paid to a terrorist nation. They paid to Iran. $1.7 billion dollars.
Or how about last week? They were going to deport 800 people. They were all ready for deportation, which means they had problems. But they made a mistake and instead of deporting these 800 people back to the middle east, guess what happened? They became United States citizens.
And then THAT turned out to be wrong, just like the $400 million dollars became $1.7 billion dollars. Well it looks like the 800 people are 1700 people and welcome, welcome, welcome folks. And then I said, well, you made a mistake. So undo it. They said well we can't do that because that wouldn't be constitutional. The world looks at us like we are stupid people. But we're not going to be stupid people much longer, folks. 'tell you. And you've gotta go out. You've gotta go out and you've gotta get your friends. And you've gotta get everybody you know and you gotta watch your polling booths because I hear too many stories about Pennsylvania, certain areas. I hear too many bad stories and we can't lose an election because of you know what I'm talking about. So go and vote and then go check out areas. Because a lot of bad things happen. And we don't want to lose for that reason. We don't want to lose, but we especially, we don't want to lose for that reason. So go over and watch. And watch carefully, because we're gonna win the state of Pennsylvania. And if we win Pennsylvania, we take back the White House.
We're leading in Ohio. We're leading in North Carolina. I think we're leading all over the place. We're leading in states that never really played for Republicans, but we're leading all over. We're doing so great. If we win the state of Pennsylvania, where I went to school, where my kids went to school, if we win the state of Pennsylvania, we are going to have a country that you are going to be so proud of. Believe me. So let's not forget the other night. The recent debate, which I think I won to be honest with you. Even though they gave me a bum mic. Okay, so how many people, did you see that, they call it the Commission on the Debates. The Commission. You know Commission. They did a great job. I go to mics all the time, the mics are working. Here we have the Commission on Presidential Debates. Big fancy name, and they gave me a bum mic. And I gotta scream into the mic and I've got friends in the audience and they keep going like this "What's going on?" They gave me a bum mic. So how many people in this room think that maybe that was done on purpose? Yeah. OK? And the head man, after an hour and a half and it's over, and I got great praise, people coming up — now I got great praise, until, what happened, one minute later all of the dopes that work at CNN said, "No Trump lost!" they start screaming. I don't think half of 'em watched because they want to change the narrative. But you watch that, and if you watch that without being influenced by these phony pundits — believe-- and don't forget, folks, they've been calling us wrong from the beginning. They've been calling us wrong from June 16th. We had no chance. We were running against professionals. We were running against Senators and Governors, and we had no chance, right? And then one by one, boom, boom, and it used to be great, I used to watch these characters on television. Donald Trump has not won 25%. That was early. I said "You know, you have 17 people in the race right?" Then they go, two weeks later, another victory, another one, another one. They say "Donald Trump has not won 38%." Then I had one where we had a lot of people left and I had 49% of the vote with a lot of people. You understand what that means? It is hard to get too many votes. So we had 49% with a lot of people running. And you know we're talking about Senators, we're talking about Governors. Talking about people like Ben Carson who were great people and endorsed me. Smart people. Good people. Ben Carson, by the way great guy. But they said — I'll never forget it. 49%, with many people. And they said to me, and they said right over the television, "But Donald Trump has not hit 50% yet." How the hell do you hit 50% when you have like 11 people left? But then we lost a couple of more, very sad to watch. We were all broken up, right? 'cause I guarantee most of the people in this room were with us from the beginning. So we were all broken up, really. And then we started getting 52%, 58%, 66%, 78%, 82%. And they just didn't understand what was going on. And now they said with crooked Hillary Clinton, that's all we have left is crooked Hillary. I mean here's a woman that's supposed to fight Putin.
[ Repeated audience chants: "Lock her up! Lock her up! " ]
Here's a woman who's supposed to fight trade deals in China — they're ripping us like no one has ripped us in the history of the world. Here's a woman that's supposed to be fighting Putin. Here's a woman that has given Barack Obama such bad advice that I guarantee you if he had the choice to do all over again, go back years, he would have never picked her as Secretary of State. She's been a disaster. Everything she's done has been bad. It's ended in huge financial loss and death, and I mean death on both sides. Death on both sides. You look at what's going on in the Middle East when they bombed these cities and they're leveled. You can imagine how many people die. She has been a disaster. But here's a woman — she's supposed to fight all of these different things and she can't make it 15 feet to her car. Give me a break. Give me a break.
Give me a break. She's home resting right now. She's getting ready for her next speech which is gonna be about 15 minutes and is gonna be in two or three days. Folks, we need stamina. We need energy. We need people that are gonna turn deals around. We can't let China take advantage of us anymore, and we have the piggy bank. We have the advantage. And by the way, don't worry. You know they like to talk about temperament. You know that's a word they got from Madison Avenue. "Let's see, how can we attack Trump?" I have a great temperament. I have, in my opinion — it's my, it's like one of my strongest things. I have a winning temperament. But you know how they choose it — we have a winning temper... because our country doesn't win any more. You know she's got bad temperament. She could be crazy. She could actually be crazy. Let me tell you.
Did you see — because all the members are going to vote. You know the top guys are gonna be with her because the top people, you know we'll tell you about that someday. The AF of L-CIO. How many members here are in the AF of L-CIO? Many? Oh, not too many. Where are you? But the top people are usually against. The unions, they're gonna be with me because I'm gonna produce jobs. We're gonna build our infrastructure and rebuild our infrastructure. She wouldn't know where to begin. She wouldn't know where to begin. I only say this, look, we need somebody who is strong. We need somebody that knows what they're doing, we're gonna bring the greatest people. So, we have now — fact it's gonna be announced next week some additional 200 plus admirals and generals supporting us. Seventeen winners of the Congressional Medal of Honor, the recipients, these great recipients of the Congressional — seventeen. Almost every police organization in the country, I mean you take a look. Law and order and justice. Law and order and justice. The border patrol. We have so many thousands and millions and millions of people. And I'll tell you with the unions. We have the support of the people underneath the boss that stood up there with their million-dollar salaries and they work with the Democrats, but they don't get anything. But we have the support of the people within the unions. We have the support. You watch what's gonna happen.
And we have the support of the Hispanics and the African-Americans because they are tired of being ripped off and taken advantage of. Believe me, you watch. They're gonna have some big, beautiful surprises on November 8th, folks. Hillary Clinton all but said that most of the country is racist, including the men and women of law enforcement. She said that the other night.
Did anybody like Lester Holt? Did anybody question her when she said that? No she said it the other night. You're not a diehard Clinton fan, you're not a supporter. From day one Hillary Clinton thinks that you're a defective person. That's what she's going around saying. How on earth can Hillary Clinton try to lead this country when she has nothing but contempt for the people who live in the country? She's got contempt. First of all she's been in so many scandals and she's been caught cheating so much. And one of the worst things I've ever witnessed as a citizen of the United States, was last week when the FBI director was trying so hard to explain how she got away with what she got away with. Because she should be in prison. Let me tell you. She should be in prison.
And she's being totally protected by the New York times and the Washington Post and all of the media. And CNN, Clinton News Network, which nobody's watching anyway so what difference does it make. Don't even watch it. But she's being protected by many of these groups. And I'll tell you what. It's not, "Oh gee do you think she's guilty?" They've actually admitted she's guilty. And then she lies and lies. 33,000 e-mails deleted, bleached, acid washed. And then takes her phones and hammers the hell out of 'em. How many people have acid washed or bleached a tweet? How many? That you deleted? So you delete it, but that's not good enough. Now, we got — this is getting crazy.
Our country is becoming a third-world country. And I'll tell you, you have great, great people in the Justice Department. You have great, great people in the FBI. Great, great people. And they are embarrassed by what's going on. They are embarrassed by what's going on, believe me. Just like you're embarrassed and I'm embarrassed. Hillary Clinton slanders and attacks anyone who wants to put America first. Whether they're Trump voters or Bernie voters — what she said about Bernie voters, amazing. Like the European Union, she wants to erase our borders and she wants to do it for her donors and she wants people to pour in to our country without knowing who they are. And you want to see problems? You watch. These special interests pay her for speeches, and she's a lousy speaker. They pay her Foundation. They pay her husband. In return they get your jobs. They get your jobs. And you're standing here from Pennsylvania, you're standing here right now. And I'll tell you what's happening. People are negotiating and owners of companies are negotiating to move your companies out to Mexico and other places. You watch. And it's getting worse, it's not getting better, it's getting worse. And you're unsuspecting.
Right now you say to your wife "Let's go to a movie after Trump," but you won't do that because you'll be so high and so excited that no movie is gonna satisfy you, okay? No movie. You know why? Honestly? Because they don't make movies like they used to, is that right? What a difference.
Like I've been saying all week, when it comes to Hillary Clinton, all you have to do is these three words: Follow. The. Money. One in three companies that lobbied for TPP passage donated to the Clinton Foundation, as much as $67 million dollars. Nine companies that lobbied for passage of TPP gave Hillary Clinton $2.7 million dollars for speeches, now she does 'em for free and very few people show up. When she went to Pennsylvania last week, did you see it? It was a small room, they couldn't fill the seats. Look at this place, look at that. Hey, hey media, turn your cameras over there. Turn your cameras over there. They don't do it. They never turn the cameras. The only time they turn the cameras, because they're dishonest as hell. And you know, they don't realize one thing. If they showed the kinda — look at that — all the way out to the door, way past... if they sh— and people outside. If they showed the kinda crowds we have, which people can hear. You know, it's interesting. You can hear the crowd, when you hear the tele—. You can hear the crowd. But if they showed, it would be better television. But they don't know much about that. But it would actually be better television. So three TPP member countries gave between $6 and $15 million dollars to Clinton. At least four lobbyists who are actively lobbying for TPP passage have raised more than $800,000 for her campaign. I'm just telling you Pennsylvania, we're gonna make it. We're gonna make it. But — we're gonna make it. We are gonna make it if we have Pennsylvania, that's for sure. That would make it easy. But I'm just telling you, you can not let this pass. NAFTA passed. It's been one of — it's been the worst trade deal probably ever made. Not in this country, anywhere in the world. It cleaned out New England, it cleaned out big portions of Pennsylvania, it cleaned out big portions of Ohio, and North Carolina, and South Carolina. You can't let it happen. And these bloodsuckers want it to happen. They are politicians getting taken care of by people that want it to happen. Other countries want it to happen because it's good for them but it's not good for us. So hopefully you're not going to let it happen. Whatever Hillary's donors want, they get. They own her. On November 8th we're going to end Clinton corruption. Hillary Clinton, dishonest person, is an insider fighting for herself and for her friends. I'm an outsider fighting for you. And by the way, just in case you're not aware, I used to be an insider but I thought this was the right thing to do. This is the right thing to do, believe me. For decades we've talked about the corruption, incompetence and failures of our leaders. 2016, our long-awaited chance. It's gonna be our long-awaited chance to bring about real change. Not Obama change, but real change. And remember this. Hillary Clinton will be four more years of Barack Obama. And, and maybe worse. It actually may be worse. We can't let that happen. You're not gonna have a country left. If you do this one simple thing, you can deliver justice for every single person who has been wronged by the system. You have to show up and vote. When you cast that ballot just picture a Wall Street board room filled with special interests who've been bleeding our country, who've been bleeding Pennsylvania, who've been taking your jobs. Take a look at their faces and you will see smart people that know the game. But people that want to take your jobs and want to take your money. To them, I say "You're fired!"
Ahh, I could be doing "The Apprentice" right now, I could be— Somehow — and I loved it, 14 seasons. How good was that? Tremendous success. They wanted to extend. I could be doing "The Apprentice" now. Somehow I think this is a little bit more important, do we agree? Just a little bit?
And to the millions of unemployed Americans, we're going to say the two words that I really love. You know what they are? "You're hired! You are hired!"
I'm not a politician. I have no special interests. My only loyalty — and I mean this. I didn't need to do this, folks. Believe me. This is tough work. This is a little bit like a lot of the people in this room. For 17, 18, and even 20 years, you had a better job 20 years ago than you have now. You got more money. It's a better job. Now you have a lot of years. You get less money. In many cases you're working two jobs, and three jobs. So you're working harder. You're older, and you're making less money. It's supposed to be the other way around.
But the only thing I can say to you is I'm also working harder. This is hard work, believe me folks. This is hard work. When they told me outside, "Sir, your helicopter cannot land tonight. The weather is terrible." I said "How many people are there?" They said "At least 15,000." I said "Are you crazy? Land the helicopter."
No, there's no way we were gonna miss it. There's no way we're gonna miss it, and these are amazing people. We have amazing people in our country. I mean, we're gonna bring our country together everywhere. We're gonna bring our country together. So my only loyalty is to you, that's my loyalty. I don't care about my company at that point. My kids will run it, my executives will run it. We built a great, great, this is a great company. Some of the greatest real estate assets in the world. I figure you know they say maybe you'll have a conflict. Yeah, if I do a great job as President, they'll probably be more valuable, right? That's a conflict, but that's like a good conflict. Isn't it?
So, we need proper thinking. Our country — can you imagine somebody saying $400 million in cash or $1.7 billion in cash, or 800 people and now 1700 people for deportation. Now coming back — as citizens! Not legally, as citizens. Hillary Clinton's only loyalty is to her financial contributors and to herself. I don't even think she's loyal to Bill, you want to know the truth. And really, folks, really, why should she be, right? Why should she be? The large corporations who support terrible trade deals that ship your jobs to other countries, they are donating to crooked Hillary Clinton. The Wall Street investors who have rigged the regulations against the middle class — and by the way, we have middle-class, we have really rich people here, we have people that aren't so rich. We have poor people. We have everybody here. We have highly educated people. I know two of 'em. And I mean, they are frankly — I see it, they're here. They have too much education. They would've done better with a little bit less, okay? Always angry at me, that's okay. But we have everybody, but we have the most loyal people, and everybody says it. We have the people that are gonna get out and vote. We have the people no matter what happens, they're out there, they're with us, because they know what we're doing is going to be so great for our country. The wealthy donors who want to shut down American energy, and that's what they're doing, they're giving to Hillary Clinton. You see it all the time. The special interests who want to open borders, they're donating to Hillary Clinton. Follow the money. In her campaign for president Hillary Clinton has received $100 million dollars in contributions from Wall Street and hedge funds. Now look, here's a person who's only worked for government essentially, right? And now they're worth $250 million dollars folks. Now it's not like they built a big project or they put a lot of people to work. They say she's worth $200, $250 million, okay? Give me a break. How do you do that? — how do you do that? She's worth $250 million, you know how that happened. She and Bill were paid $150 million dollars for speeches, since Bill left the oval office. The same groups paying Bill and Hillary — I love you too — it's a guy that said that, it's a guy, but I love him too. Bill and Hillary, for their speeches were lobbying the federal government. So they're making speeches, they're getting paid they're lobbying the government, that's nice. Twenty-two groups paying Bill Clinton for speeches, lobbied the State Department while Hillary was Secretary of State. $250 million dollars. Favors and access were granted to those who wrote checks. She put the Secretary of State up for sale. And if she ever got the chance, she'd put the oval office up for sale too, believe me.
She deleted and bleached 33,000 e-mails after getting a congressional subpoena. So here's the story, folks. If you're in a private deal and Mr. Smith is suing you, and they want your records and your e-mails and everything, and you say "Well I don't wanna give 'em," but, you know, you have a court order — this's just a court order, this isn't a congressional, this is a court order. You have to give 'em. Now here's what happens. If you don't give 'em, if you get rid of 'em, meaning delete 'em, and do what she did, they put you in jail. You know? They put you in jail. Right?
[ More audience chants: "Lock her up! Lock her up! " ]
She got a congressional subpoena. I can't believe it. I talk about it. But the FBI doesn't do anything. And the Justice Department doesn't do anything. And then Clinton, Bill, meets with the Attorney General in her plane for 39 minutes. And he said they're talking about golf and their grandchildren. 39 minutes. I give two minutes to golf, and two or three minutes to the grandchildren. And he was supposedly in Arizona just happened to be playing golf, but I think it was 114 degrees that day. It's very hot. I love Arizona, one of my favorite places, but it's very hard to play where the temperature goes over 100 degrees. Okay? So he was there to play golf but nobody saw him play golf. Did anybody see him playing golf? No. He just happened to be standing on the runway when this plane came by. Oh, hi. Hey I've had a plane for a long time and nobody's ever done that in years. Doesn't happen that way.
We're in a rigged system. And what's taking place is horrible. And I'll tell you, and I've said it before, this is all a great embarrassment to our great country. This is a great embarrassment. And people who have done 5% of what she did are suffering grave, grave consequences. You see what's happening to 'em. The mother crying because of the way they're treating her boy, who did nothing by comparison. And didn't mean to do it. You see what's going on. General Patreus, you see what happened to him? Destroyed his life. Destroyed his life. And it was a tiny, tiny piece compared to what she's done. Then she's taken 13 phones and they're missing, and they were destroyed. Many of them, or some of them, with a hammer. Foreign enemies with easy access were able to — I don't know if they did — hack her server. How 'bout the server, how 'bout the server put in the basement? Lies to congress under oath about turning over her work-related e-mails. Her staffers taking the fifth amendment. And the ringleaders getting immunity deals. Five immunity deals, there's nobody left! Except her. 'cept her. She hasn't gotten immunity yet. I wonder if Obama's gonna give her immunity. Interesting. She hasn't gotten immunity yet. She's the only one. Did anybody ever see so many people get immunity? Everybody! You're guilty, you're guilty and we'll give everybody immunity. Everyone. What, what do you need to investigate if everyone's gonna get immunity? But she hasn't gotten it yet. What are her chances of getting immunity from President Obama? Gonna be very interesting. Gonna be very interesting. Clinton and her cronies will say anything, do anything, lie about anything to enrich themselves and keep their grip on power. The American people have had it with years and decades of Clinton corruption and scandals. Remember — he got impeached for lying. You remember what he lied about. What he got impeached for lying. He can't practice law, can't be a lawyer, he was a lawyer, can't be a lawyer. Everyone forgets.
We want to take our country back, folks. We want to take our country back. Look at Whitewater. Look at the cattle deal she made. A friend of mine's in the cattle business. They said the single greatest deal percentage-wise. I mean, she made a percentage gain, I think it's gotta be some kind of record in the history of the cattle business. I guess she knows a lot about cattle. No, it's a very serious thing. We have a very, very serious thing happening right now to our country. And I'll tell you who's leading it, these people back here. All of those cameras, they're leading it. Because they're letting her get away with murder. They're protecting her. They're protecting.
So we're tired of the lies, tired of the trivial politics, tired of being talked down to, looked out upon, and treated like second-class citizens. It's not going to happen anymore. This will be the year the American people say enough is enough. Enough is enough.
Hillary Clinton has been a total disaster for so many communities, but especially — so important — for the African-American communities. I don't think African-Americans are going to come out and vote for Clinton. They're too smart and they know they've been used for years and years and years. They also know that she'll do nothing for them once the election's over. She never does, and that's never going to change. Many of them will never forget her calling young African-American men "super predators". That's what she called them. To the African-American community let me ask you, this one question: Are you better off than you were eight years ago? look for instance at our inner cities. Look at what's going on. Look at what's going on. Massive levels of poverty, crime that's out of control, no education, no jobs, tremendous joblessness. People walk to the office, they walk to get a loaf of bread, they get shot. Their child gets shot. It's been going on for decades and decades. Hillary Clinton and people that think like her — and I say this to the African-American community, I say it to the Hispanic community, vote for Donald Trump. What the hell do you have to lose? What do you have to lose?
I will fix it. I will fix it. I'll bring jobs, I'll bring great education, I'll bring safe neighborhoods. If you keep voting for the same people, you'll keep getting the same horrible results. Take a look at what's going on in the streets. Take a look at Charlotte. Take a look at Baltimore. Take a look at Ferguson. Take a look at what's happening out on the streets of our inner cities. Look at Chicago. Thousands and thousands of shootings. Three thousand shootings since January 1st. That's not a long time ago. It's worse than war zones. In many cases you have cities, inner cities, that are worse than war zones, and more dangerous than some war zones. A Trump administration will bring prosperity to all of our people. My economic agenda can be summed up in three such beautiful words: Jobs, Jobs, Jobs.
We're going to massively reduce taxes for working and middle-class Americans. Every wasteful and unnecessary regulation will be immediately eliminated, we're gonna create jobs. The total catastrophe known as Obamacare will be repealed and replaced.
We will lift the restrictions on American energy, including clean coal and shale energy, right here in Pennsylvania. And we will take care of our miners, which Hillary Clinton said she wants to put our mines and our miners out of business. She said that. She wants to put our mines and our miners out of business. Not gonna happen folks. She also wants to shut down production of shale energy. Not gonna happen. We're going to put the miners back to work. We're going to unleash the power of shale energy, adding another $50 billion dollars to Pennsylvania's economy. We're going to protect the over 5,000 farms in Lancaster, which I know very well I was here so much. And by protection, that includes lower taxes, less regulation, better trade deals, and more affordable energies. How many farmers do we have here in Lancaster? Raise your hand. Ahhh, not them— yeah but a lot of people are employed by those farmers, right? Those farmers, are they rich people? Or are the regulations not so— he goes "Not so good." We're gonna make it good for everybody.
Let me pause briefly to discuss a very heartbreaking topic. As most of you know, tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of the Nickel Mines school shooting. Tonight, when you say your prayers, I ask you to remember those five young beautiful girls and their families.
Another issue, we're going to deal with is in certain ways so important, but when I tell you about what I just did, that is a special group of people, so say your prayers, please, okay? Just remember those people, and what they went through. Remember those families. Remember those families.
So we're going to deal with trade. We're gonna deal with the disastrous trade deals like NAFTA that have crushed industry in Pennsylvania. We're gonna renegotiate them, we're gonna make them great deals, or we're gonna terminate them, start all over, we will come out so far ahead. We lost so much money, so many jobs. Your state has lost more than one in three manufacturing jobs since NAFTA was enacted. A Bill Clinton signed deal supported heavily by crooked Hillary Clinton. Jobs are moving to Mexico, including 300 that left in recent years, from the Hershey plant. You've lost one in four manufacturing jobs since China entered the World Trade Organization. Another deal pushed by Bill, and supported by Hillary. Hillary Clinton is merely a vessel for those global special interests trying to strip our country of its wealth, its jobs, its status as a sovereign nation, now we have been stripped — folks, we don't make anything anymore. We don't make anything. We're going to start making things. We're not going to let countries like China devalue their currency and have trade deficits of $400 and $500 billion dollars a year. We're not going to let it happen. She's a globalist who makes a living taking jobs in our country and giving them to foreign countries. Now she's not gonna tell you that, but that's what is gonna happen. I am not running to be President of the World. I'm running to be President of the United States of America and represent you. Have you ever wondered why it is, that all things that the American people want never seem to happen? When was the last time we had a victory? Think of it. A massive company coming into town? When was the last time? You don't have victories. We can't beat ISIS. And b the way, by the way, just so you know, our military is depleted. We're gonna build up our military. We are going to knock the hell out of ISIS. Knock the hell out of them.
It's because the financial interests who control our politics and our media don't want these changes to happen. I am an agent of change. We're gonna make great change for our country. Hillary Clinton's been there for 30 years. And you know, when I was up on the stage on Monday night I was saying to myself, it was sort of strange, all these people, I figured like 100 million people, right? I had a bad mic, I'm thinking about all this, and all of a sudden it comes to me it's like a moment of clarity. More than any other time, she says, "I'm going to do this, I'm gonna do that, I'm gonna—" she's been here for 30 years. Why hasn't she done it?
She's not gonna do anything. She's never done anything meaningful. Never. Her only legacy is death, tremendous financial loss, and failure. Her policies gave us the disasters in Iraq, in Libya and Syria. Her policies unleashed ISIS. Now remember, the way she got out of Iraq left a tremendous vacuum from which ISIS was formed. Now I said that and this character, Lester Holt, I mean take a look, you gotta study that tape — he came at me every time. And I was right! With her, when she said things that were wrong, he did not come after her.
And now she wants a 550% increase in Syrian refugees to pour into our country. And she doesn't even say the words "radical Islamic terrorism". Nor does President Obama. Her policies gave us the disastrous deal with Iran, one of the worst deals, one of the dumbest deals I've ever seen of any kind.
At home, look at how she failed. Upstate New York. She promised — just like she does now, jobs, jobs, she doesn't know the first thing about jobs — I've created thousands and thousands of jobs. That's what I do. I create jobs. She promised 200,000 jobs. But instead more people left and she failed, a tremendous failure. Manufacturing jobs in upstate New York are down nearly 40% from the time she was elected. Hillary Clinton is there for only one reason, to protect those special interests and those donors and her own money.
Our campaign is taking on big business, big media and big donors. We know how to do it. You know how you do it? With massive rallies like this. They can't compete with us. They can't. My campaign is powered by my money, my money. And by small dollar donations from hard-working patriots like all of you. Every dollar brings us closer to taking our country back, and we've a raised tremendous amount of money.
The day after the debate, $18 million dollars came into our coffers. Think of it. Eighteen. That was our all-time record. I guess they thought I did good at the debate, but we got tremendous money came in. And we're raising tremendous money in $61 dollar numbers. Because of all of you, and all of our great volunteers across Pennsylvania, some of which are here tonight, standing right in the front row. We've knocked on over 100,000 doors in the state of Pennsylvania — and believe me, those people like us knocking on their doors. Over 100,000 doors they've knocked on. Raise your hands, those people that are working with us, raise. They've been unbelievable. Thank you ma'am. Unbelievable. We're gonna have a big victory. You have 38 days until the election. Thirty-eight days to change the future of our country and the world. You have 38 days to make every dream you ever dreamed for your country come true. Do not let this opportunity slip away or be wasted. You will never, ever have this chance again. Not gonna happen again. In four years you're not gonna be able to do it. You have one magnificent chance to deliver justice for every forgotten man, woman and child, in this nation. The arrogance of Washington DC will soon come face to face with the righteous verdict of the American voter. Watch.
It happened in Europe — Brexit — and it's gonna continue to happen. And I predicted Brexit. Remember, I predicted — Everybody said "What does trump know?" But I have a lot of things over there, and I said "You know what, there's a bad feeling going on here." And I predicted Brexit, and everybody said "He's crazy, what does he know?" And after I turned out to be right, nobody said I predicted it. On November 8th, we're going to show the whole world that America is back, bigger and better and stronger than ever before.
And just to finish up, here's just a few of the great things that will happen for your country. You are going to see your taxes substantially lowered. She wants to raise your taxes. Tremendous tax decrease. We're going to eliminate every unnecessary regulation. She wants to increase regulations. We want to repeal and replace job killing Obamacare.
We want to make child care more affordable. My daughter Ivanka is so strong, and she's gonna be here next week to speak. We're gonna end Common Core. We're gonna provide school choice to every low income child in America. African-American children, Hispanic children — we're gonna get great educations for people, that will never get it, under our system.
We're gonna end illegal immigration. We're gonna have a strong border, ohhhh, — and by the way, people are going to come into our country, but they're gonna come into our country legally. Legally. We're gonna keep radical islamic terrorists out of our country. Hillary wants to let 'em come pouring in, we can't do that, sorry.
We're gonna save the second amendment, which is under siege. And another one that endorsed me is the National Rifle Association, the NRA. Wow! They'll be happy to see that. They're gonna be happy to see that. They're incredible people and they love the country. Wayne, and Chris, these are incredible people, that truly love the country. So, by the way, if you're supporters of the second amendment, gotta get out and vote, sorry. Support the men and women of law enforcement. We have to.
And we're gonna appoint Justices to the United States Supreme Court who will uphold and defend the constitution of the United States.
We will rebuild our roads, our bridges, tunnels, highways, airports, schools, and hospitals. American cars will travel the roads. American planes will soar in the skies. And American ships that we make — that we make — will patrol the seas. Pennsylvania steel will build this country like it built the Empire State Building many years ago.
And Pennsylvania steel, and the incredible steelworkers, will send new skyscrapers into the clouds. American hands will rebuild this nation, and American energy mined by our miners and other American sources, including right here in Pennsylvania, so important, will power our nation. American workers will be hired to do the job, and we will start making things again, and we will start winning again. We will put new Pennsylvania steel into the spine of this country. I will fight for every neglected part of our nation, and I will fight to bring us all together as Americans. Imagine what our country could accomplish if we started working together as one people under one God, saluting one American flag.
On November 8th, a new bright dawn begins for our country. Pennsylvania, you have no idea the importance. Crooked Hillary is spending tens of millions of dollars on Wall Street money, running commercials about me that are false — although mostly false, a little truth once in a while. So many commercials, a friend of mine called up, he said "There's nothing else but those commercials, they're driving me crazy! And Donald, it's not you!"
That's true, it's not me. It's not me. But she's spending tens of millions of dollars, it's a disgrace. And much of those commercials I will tell you is false. So we're going to do something that I think the country has never seen before. This movement is special, the people are special. We are going to make America wealthy again. We are going to make America strong again. We are going to make America powerful again. We are going to make America safe again. And we are going to make America great again. Thank you everybody. Thank you. God bless you everybody, thank you. Get out and vote. God bless you.
