what happened. but we won the state of pennsylvania, remember? remember? remember that incredible night in november? remember that incredible night? you remember that we were way up in pennsylvania, and there was only 2% of the votes left, and we were way up. if i lost every boat, we would've won the state of pennsylvania. the fake news refused to call it, right? [boos] >> president trump: they refused to call it.
[unintelligible chanting] >> president trump: we waited for hours. we were at 98%. i said, what's going on? i want to win with the state of pennsylvania! then some interesting things happened before they called, they just refused. they said, donald trump has won the great state of wisconsin. right? they said, donald trump has won for the first time in many years, both of them, the great state of michigan, and you people didn't get the privilege of taking this over the top. next time. next time. [cheers and applause] >> president trump: they would not call it. i kept saying, why aren't they calling pennsylvania?
remember? an hour, two hours, so long. 98% and they wouldn't call it. well, they were suffering that night. [cheers and applause] >> president trump: i remember a nice man, actually like him, he's very talented. all that read, it started getting red, red, red, red, a little tiny daughter blew along the ocean, little dot of blue around the los angeles. oh, my god, another state, oh, my god. fake news. [cheers and applause] >> president trump: you know what you call them, right?
suppression polls. they give you a phony poll. so you say, you know, darling, we have an election tonight but trump won't win because the pol polls are so bad, so let's go watch a movie and we will come home and watch his defeat. the only problem is nobody believed them, and everybody went out to vote, right? [cheers and applause] >> president trump: they turn on the television and said, darling, he's winning. look, just won florida, just won north carolina. he just won south carolina. that was some night. we got an exciting night. that was one of the world's most. you know, they kept saying the state of texas, which i thought, every rally i went to was like this. by the way, you think this is a big crowd? go outside and take a look. go out.
for two and a half month, i hear texas is in play. that means it so close. it's going to be all night long before we find out who wins the state of texas. i couldn't understand it. they said, utah is in play. i can understand it, go to utah, great people, incredible people. then we come to election night. i think it's going to be close in texas because i believed those people. no longer. but i believed. [boos] so it's 8:00 and they go to seconds after 8:00. 8:00, donald trump has won the state of texas! donald trump has won the state of utah! [cheers and applause] we won by so much. i said to my people, somewhat innocently, what was that all about? they said, sir, it suppression.
if they convince people through the polls, people don't go out to vote. i mean it, our people go out to vote. no better instance then the state of pennsylvania. [cheers and applause] and i want to introduce a very special man, because he has been a friend of mine from the beginning. he has been with me, he said you're going to win, you're going to win. he's a great political person, he's a leader, he's running against somebody who was so overrated. i mean, this guy -- i was telling a little story, i've been there. [boos] i've been -- i have to do this before we introduce lou -- i've been in washington now for more than a year and a half.
[cheers and applause] i hardly -- honestly, i'm not sure i ever met bob casey. i never met him. and i'm sure i did, i shook his hand. but i'm not sure -- now, his father was a good man. no him a little bit. but we are dealing with a totally different person. i don't think -- i don't know this man. he's a senator, there are hundreds of him -- i don't know him! this is not an obstruction, it's worse. he said, he will do whatever schumer, pelosi, and the new star of the democrat party tells him to do. do you know who the new star -- you know that new leader is? maxine waters.
[boos] very low iq. low iq. no, maxine waters is like, their new star. but i want to introduce somebody who really is a star. he's smart, he's strong, he loves this state, people are just starting to know him but i have known him for a long time. when he want something for pennsylvania, he is brutal. he is brutal. so, if you would, lou barletta, please come out. lou barletta.
speak out thank you, thank you ! it's amazing, this is just amazing. i never thought of my life i would become a politician. i never thought that i would become a mayor. i never thought that i would become a congressman. but never in my wildest dreams would i ever believe that the president of the united states would come to my home area to help me win and election for the united states senate. [cheers and applause] thank you. thank you. i'm grateful and humbled by that. you know, the economy is soaring under president trump's economy. it is soaring. the market is up over 20%, unemployment is at 4%, black unemployment is at an all-time low, hispanic employment is at an all-time low. small business confidence is at an all-time high.
consumer confidence is at an all-time high. there are more jobs done for people who were unemployed. isis is practically gone, north korea is at the table, the wall is being built, why would we ever stop that? we are not tired of winning, mr. president. we are not tired of winning. but i want to tell you who wants to stop that, mark casey wants to stop that. he has become one of the most liberal senators in all of washington. he is leading the resistance and obstruction to president trump's agenda. he is so radical, he is so radical now that he said no to no matter who president trump nominated for the supreme court. it didn't matter, he said no before he even mentioned who it was. he gave us obamacare, he support sanctuary cities, he wants to take away your tax cuts, he no longer represents the values of people here in pennsylvania. listen, this is very important.
it's very important because we want to keep that economy going. we want to once again show or law enforcement and first responders the respect they deserve. we want to take care of our vets, we want to honor our military, we want to secure our borders, we want to and illegal immigration once and for all, and we want to take a need to pray and stand for the flag. [cheers and applause] now i need everyone here, i need everybody here and everyone watching to help. help me help president trump drain the swamp and make america great again. thank you!
>> president trump: he did a good job. so long, folks. i wonder what i have to do? you don't know lou, some people. they don't know him well. i've known him well for a long time. all i had to do, i wanted him to get this position to run. i said, all i have to do is introduce lou barletta to the public a little bit, because he is known in his area, his district, he's like a legend. he was a great mayor, a great congressman. but the state didn't know him really as much, and tonight, they all know him. this guy is a dynamo, he's incredible. and i have to say, you are dealing on the other side with the exact opposite. lou mentioned some of the things, but when you think about justice gorsuch, you don't do better than that. you don't do better than that.
and casey voted against him. and now we have somebody that's extraordinary. as you know, judge kavanaugh. yale college, yale law school, top, top student, top of everything. they predicted 15 years ago when he was with a lot of other talented people, someday he would be a supreme court judge. and you know what? i think casey doesn't even want to meet with him. you know why? because schumer, pelosi, and maxine waters told him not to meet. [boos] because he was no, maybe after tonight he will vote yes, but i doubt it. because his bosses are telling him what to do. and they always have. not the father, but the sun,
yes. so they have no one to kavanaugh, no one judge gore search, no one massive tax cuts. in fact, casey and the group want to and tax cuts and increase your taxes. somehow, that doesn't play well. somehow, that doesn't play too well. you know what else he was no on? the biggest things that only the business people in this room fully appreciate, he was no one regulation cutting. we had regulations that made it impossible to do business in this country. highways would take 21 years to get approved. we have it down to two years, and it's going to be one year very shortly. [cheers and applause] very shortly. you know what? we want to clean beautiful wate water. we want crystal clear air, we want our air to be the best.
it is right now. it's the best it's ever been. but you don't have to go through 97 different approvals over a 20 year period, and we may reject plenty, but we are going to reject them in a year and go on to doing something else. we are not going to take them down the line 20, 21 years and then you have a 3-2 vote against the project where people work their entire lives to get it approved. so, we've gotten rid of massive amounts of regulation. bob casey -- bob casey was joining president obama -- [boos] and his horrible attacks on our clean coal industry. bob casey was making it absolutely impossible for the
miners, and our beautiful pennsylvania clean coal. and lou won, and so did i, and so did you. so now, with lou on our side, we've won that were on coal, and we are doing something else, because we are putting these great miners. remember when hillary clinton said, we are going to close you up, then she had to come to pennsylvania -- [chanting "lock her up"]
no, no, no. it's all changing. some things just take a little bit longer. they only want to go after republicans. you look at the kind of chemical actions and crime, they only want to go after the republicans. lou wants to put our miners back and they are working. you know what i'm really proud of? we are putting our steelworkers back to work at clips that nobody would believe. u.s. steel is opening up seven plants, nucor is opening up a brand-new $250 million plan in florida. just left florida. did anyone like that one? wasn't that great? great state of florida.
that was another one. that was another one. they say the republicans are going to have a hard time winning florida. we won florida quickly. they announced that one early in the night, and we are doing better. the nice part, we are doing better in all of these states then we did on election night. much better. despite only negative publicity, only negative stories from the fakers back there. [boos] i go home, i see my wife, i say, honey, i just did something so great today. i just stopped missiles from being launched every two seconds in korea. baby, what i did with north korea was great. i got along great with chairman kim. that's a good thing, not a bad thing, by the way.
i just did great. i got along. you know what? maybe, i got the hostages back didn't have to pay anything. you know what, honey? they are not testing any more nuclear. they haven't had a test in nine months. you know what else? they are not sending rockets over japan, they are not sending missiles over japan, and they are not launching missiles anymore, they haven't launched one in nine months. i said, the media is going to treat me finally so good. so good. i mean, it's going to be so great, baby. i'm looking so forward to getting up tomorrow and reading those dying papers. what joy reid? what do i read? i left three months ago.
what do i read? they have been working on the stove for 75 years. obama didn't do anything. in all fairness, other administrations didn't do anything. what did i read? i left three months ago. "donald trump isn't moving fast enough." i'm not moving fast enough. oh, boy. what a group. what a group. you know, another one. in helsinki, i had a great meeting with putin. we discussed everything. [cheers and applause] we got along really well. by the way, that's a good thing, not a bad thing. that's a really good thing. now, we are being hindered by the russian hoax. it's a hoax, okay?
i'll tell you what, russia is very unhappy that trump won. that i can tell you. but i got along great with him. and everybody said, wow, that was great, that was great. a couple hours later, i started hearing these reports that they wanted me to walk up to the podium -- they wanted me to walk up and go like this -- they wanted me to go up and have a boxing match. i said, whatever happened to diplomacy? by the way, whatever happened to diplomacy? you know, i use to study, not too much, diplomacy. i said, whatever happened to getting everything you want? sometimes you have to be up, sometimes you have to be nice, but whatever happened? let me tell you, if i did go up and start screaming, they would've said, "he was terrible!
he was so rude! he was so horrible! his performance was horrible!" whatever happened to fair price? whatever happened to honest reporting? so, we had a great meeting with russia, a great meeting with putin. they really thought i was soft. soft? i mean, i was the one that let out 60 diplomats. i was the one that complained about the fact that germany is playing billions of dollars for a ridiculous pipeline coming into germany. they are playing billions and billions of dollars a year to russia. i was the one that complained about it. we had a bad conflict in the middle east -- which i hate --
but we had a conflict. a lot of people died, and it was horrible. a lot of people died, and i hated, but we are going to win all the time, folks. we are going to win all the tim time. but if i get along with vladimir putin, that's a good thing, folks, not a bad thing. it's a good thing. then, i met with nato. nato, in all fairness, 29 countries including us, nato has been ripping us. we've been defending europe and they are not paying their bills. so i went in and said, folks, you've got to pay up, you are delinquent. they will be paying $200 billion. it took me one hour, but it was a rough hour.
the head of nato, secretary general stoltenberg said to the press, they don't report it, they only make up stories. they only make up. so, what happened? he said, last year alone because of what i did the previous year, we took in $44 billion more -- you have to understand, this is money to guard against russia. i wouldn't say putin is thrilled about that. not thrilled. 44 -- now, they will be taking in over a short period of years $200 billion -- 200 billion -- are you okay? you okay? are they okay? you're all right? we got to stick with our people that way here for hours and hours, right?
are you okay, darling? good. she looks good. we got to stick with those people. anybody in this front your this front row, they've been here for many hours, thank you, darling. thank you. if you want to come back after you get a little bit better, come back. i'm back. make sure she gets better, we will bring her up here. beautiful. thank you. so, i raised $44 billion last year -- i don't know if you know this, nato funding was going down. they said, or other presidents, i won't be particular, of course, you're only dealing with like, three people, we won't go
any further back than that. they would come, they would make a speech saying, could you please pay a little bit more money? thank you very much, everybody. then they would leave. the next one comes, nato, they don't pay any money, we are defending europe, they don't pay us anymore money. could you please pay us a little bit more money? thank you very much, anybody. thank you very much, luxenberg. they don't pay! the next one comes, same thing. i came, i said, fellas, you're delinquent. you got to pay. you've got to pay. [cheers and applause] and one of the leaders said, mr. president, can i ask you a question? if we don't panic , what are you going to do about it? i said, do you want protection, or not? do you want protection, or not?
so i said to my wife, you know, i just raised like, a couple hundred billion dollars, and it was like, so easy. it was so easy. i said, honey, wait till you see the press i get on this. it's gonna be great! and here is what the fake news said. they said, donald trump, our president, was extremely rude to presidents and prime ministers, and in a couple of cases, dictators, but that's all right. that donald trump was very rude! they don't talk about the money i raised. i was rude? i wasn't. actually, i have a better relationship with every one of them that any other president has had. every one. and they respect us again.
they respect us again. so, nato is a very well-funded. these countries are starting to pay up. you got to pay up, folks, you got to pay up. we went through the entire room, the last gentleman, prime minister said, we are all saying how wonderful everything is, but i don't think the president of the united states is happy. nobody is talking about that. he looked at me, he said, president, are you happy? to me. i said, no, thank you for bringing it up. this is after they went through 28 people. i said, thank you very much for bringing it up. this gentleman, and maybe they will find a transcript, he said we've got to make the president happy! i said, the only way i'm going to be happy is you got to pay your bills, folks. you gotta pay your bills. because the united states is not going to continue to spend our
money, our sweat, our tears, our blood on people that aren't. and i don't know if you know it -- i said to them as a room, i said i'm all for nato, one thing i know is that nato, which protects europe, is better for europe than it is for the united states. if you listen to some of the generals, sir, they are an ally, we must protect them. they are a long way away. i'm all for nato, you know why? because now the money is pouring in. they said i treated them badly. i didn't! i'm very proud of it. when i woke up, i said this is going to be great. finally, finally i'm going to get great press. this is going to be great. i got hammered i even nato. so, nato is in great shape, our country is in great shape, we are so strong again, so strong.
we are so strong. [cheers and applause] [chanting usa] i gave you one more of those crazy stories. one more? so, i have great respect for the u.k., the united kingdom. great respect. people call it britain, they call it great britain, they used to call it england, different parts, but the u.k., great respect. i was asked to have tea with the queen -- who's incredible, by the way. so, i was hearing -- i had landed, i was on the ground, i was waiting with the kings, with
the queen's guards. wonderful people. i'm waiting. i was about 15 minutes early and i'm waiting with my wife, which is fine. heck, it's the queen, right? we can wait. but i'm a little early. so i then go up and made the queen, and she's fantastic. we then go up and we have tea. i didn't know this, it was supposed to last for 15 minutes but it lasted for like an hour because we got along! we got along. she liked our first lady and our first lady like her. and i won't talk about conversation because you are not supposed to. unless you want to hear it? no, i'm only kidding. but we got along fantastically well and the time went by. you know, sometimes if you like somebody you get along, good chemistry, the time goes by. so we were there for about an hour. here's the story. i got there early, and the
queen's guards waited with me -- in fact, we took a helicopter to see all the secret service guys, they are not late. they don't believe in being lat late, they are incredible. they believe in being early, not late. one of them said to me, sir, we weren't late. here's the story by the fake news. "the president was 15 minutes late for the queen." wrong. and then here's the rest of the story -- you know, here's the rest. here's the rest of the story. they said i was late when i was actually early, number one. number two, i guess the meeting was scheduled for 15 minutes and it lasted for almost an hour. "the president overstated." so, i was late, and i over
stayed. but it was a beautiful, beautiful afternoon, but they can make anything bad because they are the fake, fake, disgusting news. [cheers and applause] all right, let's get back to some boring subjects like bob casey. bob casey -- is not boring, after these wonderful -- i have to talk about bob casey? i will fall asleep. don't fall asleep as we talk about sleeping bob. sleeping bob. that's it! "sleeping bob." that's it!
sleeping bob. bob casey is for open borders. look, folks -- i went to school and pennsylvania. a great school in philadelphia. the best, i went to the best school. you wouldn't believe it but i was a very good student. these people would never tell you that. but i know the people of pennsylvania very well. they are not for super liberal democrats, they are just not. bob casey wants open borders, which means crime. it means crime. he wants people to pour in, and if they pour in by the millions, that's, i guess, okay. i don't get it. lou, lou.
[chanting "build the wall"] we are building it. we're building it. we started the wall, 1.6 billion. we are fixing balls all over the border. we are going to start to get very nasty over the wall. you know, the democrats, anything i want -- it's not even the republicans, i don't know if they care about the republicans, they care about me. they are very concerned. anything i want, they want to oppose it. i just figured out how to do the wall. i will say, i don't want to build the wall and they will insist on building it. [cheers and applause] i just figured that out right now. so, bob casey doesn't mind ms-13 coming in. [boos] these are the slicers, they
sliced people. i called them animals and nancy pelosi scolded me. "how dare you call another human being an animal?" they are animals! bob casey wants to fire the incredible men and women of i.c.e. he wants to abolish i.c.e. [boos] because he's weak. let me just tell you something, these people are so tough, and you need tough because the only thing that ms-13 and these gangs that we are throwing the hill out of here at record numbers -- we are doing a good job. but the only thing that these gangs understand is tough. they don't understand a nice person, like the gentleman in
the second row. he's a nice man, i can see. sir, you wouldn't last 2 minutes talking to i.c.e. i hate to say it. his wife knows i'm telling the truth. we need strong people. i have a sheriff who is a great friend of mine. he said, -- he's had a problem with the ms-13 people -- he said to me, you know something president? i really don't mind if i.c.e. comes in and does the job. i really don't want -- this is tough stuff. they want to get rid of these incredible warriors. they are warriors! were fighting a war, and were fighting a war on drugs! they're bringing in drugs, they're bringing in lots of bad people. we are getting the hill the hee are stopping it. we are taking some tough actions. i don't know if it's before the election or after the election.
a lot of the republicans say -- and they are good, they're good. we need more republicans, they're friends of mine, they say, president, you know -- some of them are really tough guys -- they say, were better off if we wait till after. i said, it's better before, let's do it before. you know who thinks it should be before? rush limbaugh says it should be up before. before the election. you know who else? sean hannity. a lot of them. great people. a lot of people -- a lot of great republicans -- i don't mean -- they are well-meaning. they say, we have the best economy ever, we are doing great, maybe we don't want to complicate it. i understand it, i'm a little torn myself. i would personally prefer before. but whether it's before or after, we are getting it or we are closing down government. we need border security.
we need border security. [cheers and applause] we gotta have border security, we gotta get rid of "visa." how about that, visa? visa lottery. do you know what visa is? you pick it out of a hat. do you think that these countries, many of whom get aid from us -- and then they send -- remember what i did, i hate to say it, coming down the escalator, the beautiful first lady and the white dress coming down the escalator? that big, big beautiful day? when everybody said, oh, he's just doing this for fun, he doesn't really mean it. man, if i don't mean it i hope you tell me soon, because it's a lot of work. but coming down the escalator, and you remember what i said?
do you remember that? i mentioned words, i won't even mention them tonight because there's a lot of young people here, but i mentioned words, and everybody thought it was wonderful. but two days later, they said, did he say this? did he say that? guess what, what i said is peanuts compared to what turns out to be the truth. it's peanuts. so, we are going to have, not lottery where you pick it out. ladies and gentlemen, our first lottery winner -- they think we are playing like, a game show. "our first lottery winner, he has seven convictions for theft, he's killed nine people" and we are getting him the hell out of our country and giving him to the politicians stupid politice
been running our country's for years. congratulations, that's a beauty. then you have chain migration. [boos] chain migration. this was the schumer deal. schumer wanted this. schumer. [boos] chain migration. you know what that is? a guy comes in, stone cold killer, in many cases, a guy comes in and then you have to bring his aunt, his uncle, his father, his grandfather, his grandparents, his third niece by a different marriage. so, this bad guy that ran over and killed eight people on the west side highway in new york city, a place i know very well, driving like 80 miles an hour and a 20-mile zone, then he sai said, nice people are relaxing,
some are joking, beautiful parker along the hudson river -- he decides to kill them. he makes a right turn, he killed -- many of them are just decapitated. they locked arms, they lost limbs, they lost so much. they lost their life. they lost so much. nobody ever talks about the seriously injured people. they always talk about the people that died. in some cases, those are the lucky ones. what happens with some of these people, how badly injured they are, their lives are so badly destroyed, and this animal killed eight and wounded eight or nine. some are still on the hospital. that was a year and a half ago. he came in through "chain" and he has 20 to relatives here that came in because he was here. he has his uncle, and his aunt, and he has his grandfather, so
we have to change this and we are going to change it. we have to change a thing called catch and release. this is like, for stupid people. catch -- somebody walks across the border, they put their foot on them. you might as well, welcome to the united states, we will never get you out of here. okay? remember what i said about a month ago? i said, no -- they want me to hire thousands of judges. thousands. can you imagine the corruption that would take place? you are hiring a thousand? you go into a barbershop, anybody want to be a judge? we need judges! they want me to hire -- i said we don't need judges, we need border patrol. we need border patrol.
if you have a house, and somebody goes to sleep on your lawn, you say, sorry folks, get out of here. if you call the police they're going to remove -- they're going to say, it's your lawn! this is our country. this is our country. get the hell out. we are doing really well, but we have bad laws. so catch and release. you catch him, now you take his name, then you release him. and he is supposed to show up to a court hearing. the problem is his thousands and thousands of people, we don't have enough judges, but hopefully the justice department will get moving on that. hopefully. come on, justice department! get us some judges over there. focus, focus.
so, they come back three or four years later, but here's the problem. they never come back! they don't come back. why the the hell with they come back? you take a stone cold criminal, you take his name, you see he's a criminal, bad in many cases. catch and release. you catch him and you now release him, and he now goes into our wonderful towns. he now comes to the wonderful state of pennsylvania. [boos] catch and release! we have to ended. we have to and catch and release. we have to end our lottery system. we have to end chain migration, and we have to build the wall, and we are going to do it. [cheers and applause] and bob casey he's against every
one of the things i just said. he wants the lottery system, he wants a chain migration -- by the way, if you ask him why, he wants to because schumer said to have it. they think it's good, politically. i tell you what, i think it's horrible politically. what do i know? but i did become president in like, a year and a half. so, we need republicans. we need lou barletta. he is tough. we do. he's tough. they are liking you, lou. they are liking you. i could've told you that a long time -- all you have to do is meet them, all you have to do is see him. i hear that bob casey is afraid to debate lou barletta. he doesn't want to debate him. i hear he's afraid to debate. is that true? i hear he's afraid to debate. i want to watch the debate.
i want to be -- is the president of the united states allowed to come into the debate format -- you probably have 25 people watching -- is he allowed to sit in the front row watching lou barletta destroy in the debate bob casey? am i allowed to do that? if i am, i will be there. i will be there. that will be great entertainmen entertainment. that will be great entertainment. i've seen this one before. he's tough. so, i want to thank republican leadership, because america is winning again. [cheers and applause] >> [cheers and applause]. >> the democrats got in that number would be 1.2. it could even turn negative. it was going to go down.
because of the regulations. we would be choked. don't forget an approved the keystone pipeline and the dakota access pipeline. 48,000 jobs in my first few hours in office. >> [cheers and applause]. >> since the election, we have added a number that nobody would have believed. i would have never said on the campaign trail am i would not have said it because they would have done a number on me. 3.7 million new jobs including close to 400,000 jobs in the manufacturing world. remember? remember? >> [cheers and applause]. >> remember when nay said manufacturing is dead. oh, is it? who is going to make things? tell me.
manufacturing manufacturing is dead they said. you heard this but i say it over and over because i am proud of it. i said what do you have to lose? what do you have to lose? african-americans and so many others: what do you have to lose? you have high crime rates and horrible education. i went through a list. that's what happened. i looked and you have been giving your votes to democrats. they let you down. i said what the hell do you have to lose? you know why? this new election and certainly the next one, where we will it just keep america great. i love those hats. >> [cheers and applause]. >> make america great again will morph into keep america great, exclamation point. don't lose those hats.

i looked at my wife, i said you know what? you have to hand it to that guy. that guy doesn't quit, and that's okay. crazy bernie. he is one crazy dude. so, i don't know who we will run against. i don't know. but, when bernie tells how wonderful things are: he wants to raise taxes, create crime and open borders. just think of it. when he goes out and i say one thing, african-american, hispanic, asian. you have the lowest level of unemployment in the history of our country. how does somebody fight that, right? how does somebody fight it. >> [cheers and applause]. >> huh? >> [cheers and applause]. >> how do you fight that?
