4:50 pm
this is going on. david: brent bozell, as you may be able to see, donald trump is just getting up to the podium there in charlotte, north carolina. we thank you very much, brent bozell. thank you very much. great research. >> thank you, david. david: that is donald trump speaking in charlotte, north carolina. he will talk about inner cities, how you revive them. talking about law and order as well. >> great to be here in charlotte to discuss an issue that means so much to me. that's the issue of urban renewal, something you don't hear very much about, and rebuilding of our inner cities. today i want to talk about how to grow the african-american middle class and to provide a new deal for black america. that deal is grounded in three promises, safe communities, great education, and high-paying jobs. my vision rests on a principle that has defined this campaign
4:51 pm
right from the beginning you've seen where we come from and where we are right now. it is called america first. every african-american citizen in this country is entitled to a government that puts their jobs, wages, and security first. i am asking today for the honor of your vote, and the privilege to represent you as your president. [cheers and applause] and i will not let you down. you watch. [cheering] here is the promise i make to you. whether you vote for me or not,
4:52 pm
i will be your greatest champion. we live in a very divided country, but i will be your greatest champion. [cheering] [applause] i have no special interests. i take no orders from donors or lobbyists. put a lot of money into this campaign, believe me. i will be in for over $100 million. that's a lot. i work for you. and i work only for you. [cheers and applause] our campaign is about change, optimism, and the future. i am asking people to break from the bitter failures of the past and to imagine the amazing possibilities for our future and
4:53 pm
our future together. our opponent represents the rigged system, and the failed thinking of yesterday. hillary clinton's campaign offers only the die pressing pessimism -- depressing pessimism, saying this is as good as it gets and it is never going to get better. she has been doing this for 30 years and for 30 years it has only gotten bores. american politics is caught in a time loop. we keep electing the same people over and over and over. [applause] and they keep coming back to the african-american community and the hispanic community, and they keep talking about what they're going to do they don't do it. and four years later you see them again.
4:54 pm
it's enough. [cheers and applause] they keep making the same mistakes and they keep offering the same, old, lame excuses when nothing happens. you know that. i know that. frankly everybody knows that. the fact that our core result washington establishment has tried so hard to stop our movement, we have a major movement, there has never been anything like it in this country. [applause] and this is so important to me what i'm saying today. i wanted a small group of very, very powerful, influential people from the african-american community and that's what i wanted to do. enough with the rallies of 25 and 30,000 people. this was very important to me. [applause]
4:55 pm
and i just met with some of the finest people i have ever met backstage. we had a great meeting and i just want to thank those people right now. they are phenomenal people. so i want to say thank you very much. [applause] but it is just more proof that we represent the kind of change that arrives only once in a lifetime. this is a movement. it is once in a lifetime. never going to happen again. never will have another opportunity. every day i'm out on the trail proposing fresh lutions and new thinking, and every day the same people getting rich off of our broken system tell us that we can't change and that we can't try anything new because it is not good for them. i have a message message for all the doubters in washington. america's future belongs to the dreamers, not the cynics and not the critics.
4:56 pm
[cheers and applause] and it is time to extend and it's time to extend that dream to every african-american citizen in this country. african-american citizens have sacrificed so much for our nation. they fought and died in every war since the revolution, and from the pews and the picket lines they lifted up the conscience of our country in the long march for civil rights. yet too many -- [applause] thank you, thank you. yet too many african-americans have been left behind. massive numbers have been left behind. 45% of african-american children under the age of 6 live in poverty. 58% of african-american youth are not currently employed. african-americans comprise roughly 13% of the population
4:57 pm
yet make up 60% of murder victims under the age of 22. that's some number, isn't it? some number. in 2015, violent crime in charlotte increased by 18%, and it's expected to rise to 24% this year. in chicago, nearly 3,500 people have been shot since january 1st of this year. it's not a very long time. think of it, 3500 people. the conditions in our inner cities today are totally unacceptable and we have to fix them. [applause] the democrats have run our inner cities for 50, 60, 70 years or more, uninterrupted. they've run the school boards, the city councils, the mayor's office, and the congressional
4:58 pm
seats. their policies have failed, and they failed miserably. they've trapped children in failing government schools and opposed school choice at every single turn. the clintons gave us nafta. one of the worst economic deals in the history of any country. [applause] it's taken our jobs. it's taken our companies. it's taken everything. so much out of our country. and china's entry into the world trade organization, two deals that deindustrialized america, uprooted our industry and stripped detroit and baltimore and the inner cities of north carolina, where we are really focusing, and by the way, you see the new polls coming out, where we're really doing well. which is okay.
4:59 pm
[cheers and applause] thank you. we're going to win north carolina. i'll tell you. we're going to win florida, too. [applause] actually, we're going to win florida, too. we're going to win ohio. we're going to win iowa. we're winning a lot of states. a little worried back there. the media is saying what's going on over here. you have to see in florida, they have lines four blocks long trying get into the polling booths. they've never seen that. and same thing in many other states that have started. this state has lost nearly half of its manufacturing jobs since bill and hillary's nafta. think of it, half. decimating, by the way, and they have been decimated, decimating the african-american community and the african-american middle class. decimated. these jobs went to mexico and
5:00 pm
other places. politicians. democratic policies have also given rise to crippling crime and total violence. then there's the issue of taxation and regulation. massive taxes, massive regulation of small business and radical restrictions on american energy, have driven jobs and opportunities out of our inner cities and many cases out of our country. hillary wants to raise taxes very, very substantially on everybody and on business, and especially on small business as high as 45%, which will onl drive more jobs out of your community, out of our country and into other countries. one of the greatest betrayals has been the issue of immigration. illegal immigration violates the civil rights of african-americans. that's what's been
