"We Will Make America Prouder, Freer, Stronger and Greater"
The mission of our movement and of the Republican Party must be to create a vibrant culture, and a great nation for all Americans. And that is what we are creating. Our brightest days are just ahead, says Former US President Mr. Donald Trump.
I stand before you today to declare that the incredible journey we begun together we went through a journey like nobody else. There’s never been a journey like it, there’s never been a journey so successful. We began it together four years ago and it is far from being over. And you know what this is? The hardest working people, hard working American patriots, it’s just getting started and in the end we will win. We will win.
We’ve been doing a lot of winning. As we gather this week, we’re in the middle of a historic struggle for America’s future, America’s culture and America’s institutions, borders, and most cherished principles. Our security, our prosperity, and our very identity as Americans is at stake, like perhaps at no other time.
We will be united and strong like never before,
we will save and strengthen America.
So no matter how much the Washington establishment and the powerful, special interests may want to silence us, let there be no doubt we will be victorious and America will be stronger and greater than ever before.
A victory with Republican Party
For the next four years, the brave Republicans in this room will be at the heart of the effort to oppose the radical Democrats, the fake news media and their toxic cancel culture, something new to our ears, cancel culture. And I want you to know that I’m going to continue to fight right by your side.
We will do what we’ve done right from the beginning, which is to win. We’re not starting new parties. They kept saying, “He’s going to start a brand new party.” We have the Republican party it’s going to unite and be stronger than ever before.
I am not starting a new party. That was fake news, fake news.
We will fight the onslaught of radicalism, socialism,
and indeed it all leads to communism once and for all.
No. Wouldn’t that be brilliant? Let’s start a new party and let’s divide our vote so that you can never win. No, we’re not interested in that. Mr. McLaughlin just gave me numbers that nobody’s ever heard of before, more popular than anybody. That’s all of us, it’s all of us.
Those are great numbers and I want to thank you very much. Those are incredible numbers. I came here and he was giving me 95 per cent , 97 per cent, 92 per cent. And I said, “They’re great.” And I want to thank everybody in this room and everybody all throughout the country, throughout the world if you want to really know the truth.
We will be united and strong like never before, we will save and strengthen America. We will fight the onslaught of radicalism, socialism, and indeed it all leads to communism once and for all. That’s what it leads to.
Joe Biden's campaign promises were a deception
You will be hearing more and more about that as we go along, but that is what it leads to. You know that. We all knew that the Biden administration was going to be bad, but none of us even imagined just how bad they would be and how far left they would go. He never talked about this. We would have those wonderful debates, he would never talk about this. We didn’t know what the hell he was talking about actually.
In just one short month we have gone
from America first to America last.
His campaign was all lies. Talked about energy, I said, “This guy actually he is okay with energy.” He was not okay with energy, he wants to put you all out of the business. He’s not okay with energy. He wants windmills, the windmills. The windmills that do not work when you need them.
Joe Biden has had the most disastrous first month of any President in modern history, that is true. Already the Biden administration has proved that they are anti-jobs, anti-family anti-borders, anti-energy, anti-women, and anti-science. In just one short month we have gone from America first to America last.
Think about it, right? America last. There is no better example than the new and horrible crisis on our Southern border. We did such a good job. It was all worked, nobody has ever seen anything like we did and now he wants it all to go to hell. When I left office just six weeks ago, we had created the most secure border in U.S. history.
We had built almost 500 miles of great border wall that helped us with these numbers because once it is up, they used to say, “The wall does not work.” Well you know what I have always said? Walls and wheels, those are two things that will never change.
The wall has been amazing. It has been incredible and little sections of it to complete, they do not want to complete it. They do not want to complete little sections in certain little areas. But it has had an impact that nobody would have even believed.
It is amazing considering that the Democrats’ number one priority was to make sure that the wall would never, ever get built, would never, ever happen, would never get financed. We got it, financed. We ended catch and release, ended asylum fraud and brought illegal crossings to historic lows. When illegal aliens trespass across our borders, they were prominently caught, detained and sent back home and these were some rough customers, I want to tell you. Some rough customers entering our country.
It took them the new administration only a few weeks to turn this unprecedented
accomplishment into a self inflicted humanitarian and national security disaster.
By recklessly eliminating our border security measures, controls, all of the things that we put into place, Joe Biden has triggered a massive flood of illegal immigration into our country the likes of which we have never seen before. They are coming up by the tens of thousands. They are all coming to take advantage of the things that he said that’s luring everybody to come to America. We are one country, we cam not afford the problems of the world as much as we would love to. We would love to help but we can not do that. So they’re all coming because of promises and foolish words.
Biden has single handedly launched a youth migrant crisis
Perhaps worst of all, Joe Biden’s decision to cancel border security has single handedly launched a youth migrant crisis that is enriching child smugglers, vicious criminal cartels, and some of the most evil people on the planet. You see it every day, just turn on the news, you’ll see it every day.
Under my administration, we stopped the child smugglers, we dismantled the criminal cartels. We greatly limited drug and human trafficking to a level that nobody actually thought was possible and the wall helped us a lot and we protected vulnerable people from the ravages of dangerous predators and that is what they are. Dangerous, dangerous predators.
But the Biden administration is put the vile coyotes back in business and has done so in a very, very big way under the new administration, catch and release has been restored. Can you imagine? We worked so hard.
Illegal immigrants are now being apprehended and released along the entire
Southern border, just the opposite of what it was two months ago.
Catch, you know where that is? You catch them, you take their name, they may be killers, they may be rapists, they may be drug smugglers, you take their name and you release them into our country. We did the opposite. We not only did not release them, we had them brought back to their country.
Illegal immigrants are now being apprehended and released along the entire Southern border, just the opposite of what it was two months ago. They were not coming because they could not get in. Once they think they can get in, they’re coming and they are coming at levels that you haven’t even seen yet. By the hundreds of thousands, by the millions they’ll be coming.
Biden administration is pushing young migrants into the hands of human traffickers
The Biden administration is now actively expediting the admission of illegal migrants, enabling them to lodge, frivolous asylum claims and admitting them by the thousands and thousands and thousands a day, crowded together in unsanitary conditions despite the ongoing economic and public health crisis, COVID-19, or as I call it the China virus.
There’s no masks, there is no double masks, that was a new one that came out two weeks ago. First Fauci said, you do not need masks, no masks, no good, now he wants double masks. No social distancing, no nothing, no nothing. That together and I say it actually and I say for them, and I say it for our country, what the Biden administration is doing to push young migrants into the hands of human traffickers and coyotes is dangerous, immoral and indefensible, hard to believe it’s happening.
Biden has failed in his number one duty as chief executive, enforcing America’s laws. This alone should be reason enough for Democrats to suffer withering losses in the midterms and to lose the white house decisively four years from now.
They just lost the White House, but it is one of those. But who knows? Who knows, I may even decide to beat them for a third time, okay? Joe Biden defunded the border wall and stopped all future construction even on small open sections that just needed to be finished up, routine little work it’s already been bought.
Wait until the contractors get to them and they say, “No, it costs this much more money not to finish the small sections then if we finished it,” that’s going to be nice. Wait until you see those bills start pouring in. He revoked the executive order cracking down on deadly sanctuary cities.
Who knows, I may even decide to beat them for a third time, okay?
He has effectively ordered a shutdown of ICE, halting virtually all deportations, everyone, murderers, everybody, no more. Let us not deport people. And restricting our law enforcement professionals and they are great professionals, you have many of them represented here today, from conducting almost any immigration enforcement of any kind.
Biden has policy of releasing criminal into America
The Biden policy of releasing criminals into the U.S. interior is making America into a sanctuary nation where criminals, illegal immigrants, including gang members and sex offenders are set free into American communities.
They have no idea and remember with the caravans, these countries, not only the three of them, but many, many countries all over the world, they are not giving us the best and their finest because they are intelligent.
They are not giving us their best and their finest, remember I said that? I said that a long time ago when I made the first remarks, when I came down the escalator with our great future First Lady, who says hello. Who loves you as much as I love you. I said that a long time ago, and we turned out to be 100 per cent correct.
Biden’s radical immigration policies are not just illegal, they are immoral,
they are heartless and they are a betrayal of our nation’s core values.
Biden’s radical immigration policies are not just illegal, they are immoral, they are heartless and they are a betrayal of our nation’s core values. It is a terrible thing that is happening
The Republicans must hold Biden and the Democrats accountable
The Republican party must hold Joe Biden and the Democrats accountable. They ripped up the diplomatic agreements we negotiated with Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador to shut down illegal immigration.
They got a fortune, they got paid 500 dollars million a year. When I came into office, those countries were refusing to take back illegal alien gang members, including MS13, the most vicious probably of them all. No matter where you go in the world, MS13, they do things that even the worst do not think about.
So I asked, “How much do we pay these countries? How much do we pay them?” Sir, we pay them approximately 500 million dollars a year. That is a lot of money. I mean, it is peanuts compared to the way other countries rip us off but that is a lot of money. I said, “Okay, we are not going to pay them anymore because they would not take back the criminals.” And this was true with the Obama administration, it was true for many, many years.
So we would catch a murderer we would want to bring them back to Guatemala or Honduras or El Salvador, they would not take them back. No, we do not want them. We would fly them in, they would not let the plane land, we would bus them and they would not let the buses get anywhere near the border. And I said, “We are not going to pay them anymore.” So after I said that, and I stopped payment, like a term that we use in the world of business, let us stop payment.
So we stopped payment, they were delinquent. We stopped payment and they very quickly came to the table and we made a deal very quickly. We still kept the money. We still did not pay it but we made a deal. And when illegal aliens came across our border they were rapidly deported and lovingly accepted by those countries from where they came and it worked, so they accept the people and we ultimately got along very well with those countries, those three countries, and many countries throughout the world, because they respected us again.
The countries to which we paid foreign aid grants did not respect us
They did not respect us. They could not believe what they were getting away with. But now Joe Biden has wrecked this great deal, wrecked it. And they are already doing what they were doing before, and they are taking the money and that is just a small portion of what is going on.
To top it all off, the Biden people are pushing a bill that would grant mass amnesty for millions of illegal aliens while massively expanding chain migration. That is where you come in and everybody comes in, your grandmother, your father, your mother, your brother, your cousins, they come in so easily. So crazy, so crazy. It even requires that the U.S. government provide a illegal border crossings with taxable funded lawyers, lawyers.
Anybody need a good lawyer? You can not have one. They get the lawyers, they lawyers. They are probably very good to.
The Democrat immigration bill is a globalist corp
The Democrat immigration bill is a globalist corp. You take a look at the corporatists, big tech attack on hard working citizens of every race, religion, color, and creed and Republicans must ensure that it never is allowed to become federal law, which is what they want to do. We must stand tall in the party. We have to do this. We have to stand for law abiding Americans and others when they’re in our country.
Joe Biden did not inform Americans during the campaign
what policies he was going to implement immediately
Border security is just one of the many issues on which the new administration has already betrayed the American people. He did not talk about this stuff. I debated him. He was not talking about this. What he signed with those executive orders. They were not things that were discussed. We did not know all about him and the press because they are fake news. They are the biggest fakers there are.
But the press refused to ask the questions and when I asked the questions on television, on the debate, Chris Wallace, in this case, and others refused to let him answer. They refused to let him answer the questions. Maybe we could have found something, or if the media did its job, which they do not.
Their callous indifference to working families is equally clear when it comes to the critical matter of getting Americans’ children back to school. They must get back and get back right now, right now. Crazy. Terrible. Terrible. The Biden administration is actually bragging about the classroom education they are providing to migrant children on the border while at the same time, millions of American children are having their futures destroyed by Joe Biden’s anti-science school closures.
Joe Biden has shamefully betrayed America’s youth
Think of it. We are educating students on the border but our own people, children of our citizens, citizens themselves are not getting the education themselves; are not getting the education that they deserve. There’s no reason whatsoever why the vast majority of young Americans should not be back in school immediately.
The only reason that most parents do not have that choice is because Joe Biden sold out America’s children to the teacher’s unions.
The only reason that most parents do not have that choice is
because Joe Biden sold out America’s children to the teacher’s unions.
His position is morally inexcusable. You know that. Joe Biden has shamefully betrayed America’s youth and he is cruelly keeping our children locked in their homes, no reason for it whatsoever, they want to get out.
They are cheating the next generation of Americans out of the future that they deserve. They are going to grow up and have a scar. It is a scandal of the highest order and one of the most graven acts by any president in our lifetimes.
It is the teacher’s union, it is the votes and it should not happen. And I have, nobody has more respect for teachers than I do. And I will bet you a lot of the people within that union, they agree with everything I am saying. Even the New York Times is calling out the Democrats.
The mental and physical health of these young people is reaching a breaking point. Tragically suicide attempts have skyrocketed and student depression is now commonplace and at levels that we’ve never seen before.
The Democrats now say we have to pass their 1.9 trillion dollars boondoggle to open schools, but a very small part of it has to do with that. You know where it is going. It is going to bail out badly run Democrat cities. So much of it. But billions of dollars for schools remain unspent from the COVID relief bills that were passed last year. So on behalf of the moms, dads and children of America, I call on Joe Biden to get the schools open and get them open now. It would be a great thing to do.
When I left office, and we are very proud of this because this was something that they said could not be done. The FDA said it, everybody said it, any article that you read said it. Couldn’t be done. It would be years and years. I handed the new administration what everyone is now calling a modern day medical miracle. Some say it’s the greatest thing to happen in hundreds of years, hundreds of years. Two vaccines produced in record time, others on the way, including the Johnson and Johnson vaccine that was approved just yesterday.
And therapeutic relief, also, if you are sick. If you are sick, we have things now that are incredible. What has taken place over the last year under our administration would have taken any other president at least five years. And we got it done in nine months. Everyone says five years, five years.
What has taken place over the last year under our administration
would have taken any other president at least five years.
Can you imagine if you had to go through what all of the countries of the world who are now getting the vaccine or soon will be getting it from various companies. But can you imagine if all of those countries had to go through what they have been going through over the last year? You would lose hundreds of millions of people.
I pushed the FDA like they have never been pushed before. They told me that loud and clear. They have never been pushed like I pushed them. I did not like them at all. But once we got it done, I said I now love you very much. What the Trump administration has done with vaccines has in many respects, perhaps saved large portions of the world. Not only our country, but large portions of the world.
Not only did we push the FDA far beyond what the bureaucrats wanted to do, we also put up billions and billions of dollars, 10 billion, to produce the vaccines before we knew they were going to work. It was called a calculated bet or a calculated risk. We took a risk because if we did not do that, you still would not have the vaccines. You would not have them for a long time.
We took a risk, a calculated bet because if we did not do that,
you still would not have the vaccines.
So think of that. We took this bet, we made a bet because we feel we’re on a certain track. But you’d be starting to make them right now. It’d be a long time before you ever saw. It takes 60 to a hundred days to manufacture and inspect new doses. And that means that 100 per cent of the increased availability that we have now was initiated by our administration. 100%.
In fact, the director of national institutes of health, Francis Collins, he is Fauci’s boss, actually. I think he is a Democrat too, by the way. Recently said that our operation warp speed was absolutely breathtaking. And that the Trump administration deserves full credit. Which we do. As conservatives and Republicans, never forget that we did it.
Never let them take the credit because they do not deserve the credit. They just followed now, they’re following our plan, but this has been something that they really call it an absolute miracle.
Joe Biden is only implementing the plan that we put in place. And if we had an honest media, which we do not, they would say it loud and clear. By the time I left that magnificent house at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, almost 20 million Americans had already been vaccinated. 1.5 million doses were administered on my final day alone. 1.5 million in a day. Yet Biden said just a few days ago that when he got here, meaning the White House, there was no vaccine. He said there was no vaccine. Oh good. Say it again, Joe.
Now I do not think he said that, frankly, in a malicious way. I really do not. I actually believe he said that because he did not really know what the hell was happening. But never let them forget, this was us. We did this. And the distribution is moving along according to our plan. And it is moving along really well.
We had the military, what they have done, our generals and all of the people were incredible. But remember, we took care of a lot of people. Including, I guess on December 21st, we took care of Joe Biden, because he got his shot. He got his vaccine. He forgot. It shows you how unpainful that vaccine shot is. So everybody go get your shot. He forgot. So it was not very traumatic, obviously. But he got his shot. And it is good that he got his shot.
Biden has urged the legislation shredding your Second Amendment
Last year, I predicted to you that the extremist corruption and incompetence of the Biden administration would be literally unprecedented in American history. Unfortunately, he has proven me 100 per cent right. Already, as president, Biden has urged the legislation shredding your second amendment. Your second amendment is in far bigger trouble than you know. And for four years, I fought like hell to save your second amendment. And we saved it 100 per cent. We saved it.
We signed an order to conduct politically correct, far-left indoctrination trainings in every department of the federal government, including the U S military, after I had terminated these horrible things that were being preached to our military. And he wants it to go forward. It is insane.
Within his first few hours Biden eliminated our national security travel bans
on nations plagued by terrorism where strict vetting cannot occur.
Within his first few hours Biden eliminated our national security travel bans on nations plagued by terrorism. His first priority was to open up borders to unvetted travelers from Libya, Yemen, Syria, Somalia and other countries where strict vetting cannot occur. Countries that have tremendous problems. Countries with tremendous terrorism problems.
We did a travel ban. It was a real achievement. We told those countries, sorry, straighten out your act. We do not want people coming in where they had an ideology or a problem. How it worked was incredible. And he terminated it.
We had to get it approved. It went all the way up to the Supreme Court of the United States. We got it approved and he terminates it. In addition, he has already increased refugee admissions by nearly 10 times. But in effect, it will soon be hundreds of times as millions of people flow up through our soon to be open borders. And by the way, the border patrol and ICE are some of the great heroes of our country. These are incredible people. I got to know them very well.
Your family still cannot go out to eat at local restaurants, but Joe Biden is bringing in thousands upon thousands of refugees from all over the world, people that nobody knows anything about. We don’t have crime records. We don’t have health records. What are they bringing in with them? When I left office, we had virtually ended the endless wars. These endless wars, they go on forever. They go on forever.
We had made historic peace deals in the Middle East like nobody
thought were even possible. There is not a drop of blood shed.
I would go to Dover and I would see caskets, coffins coming in. I’d see the parents and wives and husbands. I would see the kids. Endless wars.
Iraq. Remember I used to say do not go in, but if you are going to go in, keep the oil but we did not keep the oil. We had made historic peace deals in the Middle East like nobody thought were even possible. There is not a drop of blood shed.
And by the way, not one American soldier has been killed in Afghanistan in over a year. Think of that. Not one. Those troops have largely come home.
At the same time, the new administration unilaterally withdrew our crippling sanctions on Iran, foolishly giving away all of America’s leverage before negotiations have even begun. Leave the sanctions, negotiate.
Does anybody understand what I am saying here? Are there any good business people? You do not have to be a good. Are there any bad business people? They took off of the sanctions. They took off the sanctions. They said, well, we’re going to not have any sanctions. Let us negotiate a deal.
I will tell you something. And I said it. Had we had a fair election, the results would have been much different, and we would have had a deal. We would have had a deal with Iran within one month.
They wanted those sanctions off of… Took them off for nothing. For nothing. Now you watch how tough they negotiate.
China is paying 39 million dollars but the US 500 million dollars to WHO
In another horrendous surrender, he agreed to get back into the World Health Organization for approximately 500 million dollars a year. It is what we were paying.
When I withdrew from the WHO, and you know the whole story with that, they called it badly. They really are puppets for China. They called and they wanted us to stay in. I said how much are we paying? Approximately 500 million dollars. How much is China paying? A much larger in terms of population country. Sir, they are paying $39 million. I said why are we paying 500 million and they’re paying 39 million. I can tell you why. Because the people that made the deal are stupid. That is why.
And I had no idea how popular was… I did not even know if I would be able to politically because people were so happy when I did get out. But I said, so if we went in, we could get it for 39 million, which is what China, not 500 million, which is what we were stupidly paying. And they said, we can make a deal. We want you to go in. We can make a deal. Okay. And I decided not to do it. But we could have had it for 39. We could have had it for the same as China. And they decide, now to go back into the World Health Organization and pay 500 million. What the hell is wrong with that?
Just like the Iran and the World Health Organization, Joe Biden put the United States back into the very unfair and very costly Paris climate accord without negotiating a better deal. They wanted us so badly back in. I will tell you they wanted us. I was getting called from all of the countries. You must come back into the Paris accord. I said, tell me why. Give me one good reason.
First of all, China does not kick in for 10 years. Russia goes by an old standard, which was not a clean standard. And other countries, but we get hit right from the beginning. Would have cost us hundreds of thousands and millions of jobs. It was a disaster. But they go back in.
I could have made an unbelievable deal and got back in, but I didn’t want to do that. Surrendering millions of jobs and trillions of dollars to all of these other countries. Almost all of them that were in the deal. So they have favorable treatment. We do not have favorable treatment. And we just said, we are going back in.
Biden never talked about the cancel of Keystone pipeline because he would lose
And what good does it do when we are clean, but China is not, and Russia is not, and India is not. So they are pouring fumes.
But they could have made a great deal instead of just saying we are back in.
And in one of his first official acts, which was incredible, because again, he talked about energy. He never said he was going to do this. He canceled the Keystone XL Pipeline. Destroying investment or the 9,000 or the 11,000 jobs that you hear. But 42,000 great paying jobs. On just about day one, right? He never talked about that during a debate because he would not have gotten away with it. Well, he would have because they cheated so much it probably would not have mattered.
No, but that was not a topic of conversation. Remember? Fracking. You could track. Oh, we love fracking. During the primary, no fracking. As soon as he got through that, he said, no, of course everybody can frack. No fracking.
If the Democrats have their way,
we are heading from energy dominance to energy disaster.
You wait till you see what happens with your gasoline. Wait till you see what happens and we cannot let this stuff continue to go on. One of my proudest accomplishments as president was to make America energy independent.
The United States became the number one energy superpower. Number one. Became number one, bigger than Saudi Arabia, bigger than Russia by a lot. We left them all in the dust. But if the Democrats have their way, we are heading from energy dominance to energy disaster. That is what is happening. You have to see what is going on. Everything is being closed up. It is a disaster.
The blackouts we saw in California last summer and all the time. The windmill calamity that we are witnessing in Texas. Great state of Texas. We love Texas. But it’s so sad when you look at it. That will just be the start.
How bad is wind power? So I talk about it all the time at CPAC, right? We went to CPAC. Remember last year, I said, we are going to watch the president. Alice, the wind is not blowing. I do not believe we will have any electricity. Remember we would kid, but I was not actually kidding. It is such an expensive form of energy. It is so bad for the environment. It kills the birds. It destroys the landscapes. And remember, these are structural columns with fans on them. They wear out. And when they wear out all over the country, you see them, nobody takes them down. They are rotting. They are rusting.
How this is environmentally good for our country. And it costs many, many times more than natural gas, which is clean. It costs many more. We can not do that.
I love solar but it does not have the capacity to do
what we have to do to make America great again
And solar, I love solar but it does not have the capacity to do what we have to do to make America great again. Sorry it just does not have it. Under the radical Democrat policies, the price of gasoline has already surged 30 per cent since the election. And we’ll go to $5, $6, $7 and even higher. So enjoy that when you go to the pump.
Biden is taking energy independence away from America
They will say, that will be about 200 dollars to fill up your van. You will go to the… Remember they used to go to the little small vans. They got away from the big ones that everybody wanted. They went to the small ones. Well, you know what? Probably a good investment. As long as these guys have their say, because you know, it’s a shame what’s happening. Energy prices are going to go through the roof, and that includes your electric bills. That includes any bill having to do with energy. Our biggest cost.
We will now be relying on Russia and the Middle East for oil.
What can be better than what this guy has done for Russia?
We will now be relying on Russia and the Middle East for oil. And they talked about Russia, Russia, Russia. What’s better than what this guy has done for Russia? I had oil where they were actually paying you to take it. Okay. You know, I was… Remember they were going to give you 37 a barrel, but you got to take it away.
You had free oil almost for a period of time and one way I was proud of it, but we also had to save the energy industry and it worked out well. I dealt with Russia and they cut back on production, and we got it back up. But now it is going the opposite because now they are taking this incredible energy independence away from the people of our country. And you’re going to see costs go like you have never seen them go before. It’s a very sad and very stupid thing that they’re doing. The Biden policies are a massive win for other oil producing countries and a loss for the United States and our great citizens.
Biden policies deny US women an honest competition in sports
Joe Biden and the Democrats are even pushing policies that would destroy women’s sports. A lot of new records are being broken in women’s sports. Hate to say that ladies, but got a lot of new records, they are being shattered.
Every ounce was like a big deal for many years. All of a sudden somebody comes along and beats it by a hundred. Young girls and women are in sex that they are now being forced to compete against those who are biological males. It’s not good for women. It’s not good for women’s sports, which worked so long and so hard to get to where they are. The records that stood for years, even decades, are now being smashed. Smashed. If this does not change, women’s sports, as we know it, will die. They will end. It will end.
The early weeks of the Biden administration of nothing less
than they have been a catastrophe for American
workers and for American families.
What coach, if I am a coach, I want to be a great coach. What coach, as an example, wants to recruit a young woman to compete if her record can easily be broken by somebody who was born a man. Not too many of those coaches around, right? They are around, they will not be around long because they are going to have a big problem when their record is… We are 0 and 16, but we are getting better. No, I think it is crazy. I think it is just crazy what is happening. We must protect the integrity of women’s sports. So important. Have to.
As you can see, the early weeks of the Biden administration of nothing less than they have been a catastrophe for American workers and for American families.
Our task is to stand up to Biden's destructive agenda with Trumpism
Our movement is strong like it has never been before. We won the election twice. The task for our movement and our party is to stand up to this destructive agenda with confidence and with resolve.
The future of the Republican Party is to defend the social, economic, and cultural interests and values of working American families of every race, color, and creed. That is why the party is growing so rapidly and is becoming a different party. And it’s becoming a party of love.
That is right. Now it is a party that is incredible. The people, the spirit, and there is more spirit now than there has ever been, including even before the election. More spirit now than we have ever seen, because people are seeing how bad it can be.
I want to thank Rush and Kathryn because what he did to get the word out has been incredible. Some people are irreplaceable as Sean Hannity would say, and he said, “Rush is replaceable,” but his spirit lives on and that is something that we need and we love.
America must come first
Republicans believe that the deeds of every citizen must come first. In fact, America must come first. We don’t put it first. They don’t put it first. Over the past four years my administration delivered for Americans of all backgrounds like never before, like never before.
We built the strongest economy in the history of the world, raised wages, and achieved the lowest African American, Hispanic American, Asian American unemployment rates ever, ever, ever recorded. It was so great for everybody of all backgrounds that even after the China virus, we are leading the world, nobody’s even close. We’re leading it in the comeback.
Republicans believe that the deeds of every citizen must come first.
In fact, America must come first.
Our economic comeback has been incredible because the financial and economic foundation we built was so strong. Unlike other countries, which are having a hard time, we did not break. We came roaring back and now our stock market and your 401ks are again at record levels, higher than ever before actually.
Trumpism means great trade deals
not the one where we give everything
our jobs, our money.
Many people have asked what is Trumpism, a new term being used more and more. I am hearing that term more and more. I did not come up with it, but what it means is great deals, great trade deals, great ones, not deals where we give away everything, our jobs, money. Like the USMCA replacement of the horrible NAFTA.
NAFTA was one of the worst deals ever made, probably the worst trade deal ever made. And we ended it. You know, a lot of people forget, we ended it. Now we have the USMCA, Mexico, Canada. It’s incredible what it’s done for our farmers who are doing fantastically.
Did you see grain prices and grain sales are at an all time high? Wheat, all time high. So many elements of farms and farmers, and they love me. And remember, it was going to be very close in Iowa. Well, it was not close. We won a landslide, Iowa, because our farmers know, and they put up with it. And we did a lot of work with the tariffs and all these things that we had to do to get it, and now the farmers are doing great. But they are setting records.
Trumpism means low taxes and eliminated job killing regulations,
strong borders, and immigration based on a system of merit.
It means low taxes and eliminated job killing regulations, Trumpism. It means strong borders, but people coming into our country based on a system of merit. So they come in and they can help us as opposed to coming here and not being good for us, including criminals, of which there are many, it means no riots in the streets.
Trumpism means very strong protection
for the second amendment and the right to keep and bear arms
and the strong military
It means law enforcement. It means very strong protection for the second amendment and the right to keep and bear arms.
It means support for the forgotten men and women who have been taken advantage of for so many years. The were doing great, they were doing great before that horrible thing from China came in and hit us. And now they’re starting to do really well again. If you think about it, we built the economy twice. We built a then and then like every other country in the world, it went down and then we built it again. Now it’s higher in many ways, certainly in the stock pocket, it’s higher in many ways than it was before. That’s because of the foundation and no country comes even close to competing with our comeback.W
We built the economy twice. We built a then and then like every other country in the world, it went down and then we built it again.
And it means a strong military and taking care of our vets, but a strong military, which we have totally rebuilt, we have rebuilt it. And our military has never been stronger than it is today. It was tired, it was depleted, it was obsolete. And now we have the best brand new equipment ever made and it was all produced right here in the USA. Isn’t that nice? And we take care of our vets.
We had a call recently just before leaving office, the vets had a 91 per cent approval rating for the way we took care of them. It’s the highest number in the history of the polls. The vet polls. On top of all of that, we have even created the Space Force, the first new branch of the United States in nearly 75 years.
The priorities of Democrat Party vs the mission of Republican Party
The mission of the Democrat Party is to promote socialism. They want to promote socialism, ultimately leading unfortunately to communism. And that will happen. If you look at Venezuela, you look at some of these countries, that’s why some of our biggest supporters are from South America, Latin America, because they’ve seen what goes on with all of this cancel culture and you can’t speak it, and let’s cut them off, and let’s not give them words.
The mission of our movement and of the Republican Party
must be to create a future of good jobs, strong family,
safe communities, a vibrant culture, and a great nation for all Americans.
The mission of our movement and of the Republican Party must be to create a future of good jobs, strong family, safe communities, a vibrant culture, and a great nation for all Americans. And that’s what we’re creating. Their party is based upon unvarnished disdain for America, its past, and its people. You see that happening. It’s horrible the way they treat the legacy of our country, the culture of our country. Our party is based on love for America and the belief that this is an exceptional nation blessed by God.
We take great pride in our country. We teach the truth about history. We celebrate our rich heritage and national traditions. We honor George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, and all national heroes. And of course, we respect our great American flag.
We had 56 unbelievable packed rallies recently. And nobody has ever had anything that we had. And we started hearing, “We love you.” And I asked somebody because we really like Ronald Reagan, right? He was a great president. We had others. But I said, “Did anybody ever say that to Ronald Reagan or to any of our great … .” And to the best of all of these political professionals’ knowledge and pollsters. Nobody’s ever heard that yet before, man. So it’s an honor. Believe me, it’s an honor. Great honor. That’s a great honor.
When you think about, we love you. When you’re saying that about … I hate to say it, am I a politician? I don’t know. Maybe I’m a politician. I hate to admit it, but it is an honor that you would say.
We are committed to defending innocent life
and to upholding the Judeo-Christian values of our founders.
We believe in patriotic education and strongly oppose the radical indoctrination of Americans youth. It’s horrible. We are committed to defending innocent life and to upholding the Judeo-Christian values of our founders. We have raised free thought, we stand up to political correctness, and we reject left wing lunacy, in particular we reject cancel culture.
We have raised free thought, we stand up to political correctness,
and we reject left wing lunacy, in particular we reject cancel culture.
We know that the rule of law is the ultimate safeguard. We affirm that the constitution means exactly what it says, as written. They want to change it. They want to get rid of it. We believe in law and order and we believe that the men and women of law enforcement are heroes who truly deserve our absolute support. We do not defund the police.
We believe in standing up to China, shutting down outsourcing, bringing back our factories and supply chains, and ensuring that America not China dominates the future of the world. So it is going to happen. And by the way, we took in hundreds of billions of dollars from China during my administration, hundreds of … and they never gave us 25 cents. It was a one-way street. We took in hundreds of billions and during negotiations, they would say, “Look, the one thing, we don’t want any more of these tariffs.
These tariffs … .” Those tariffs, we took in so much money. And what happened is they became competitive. So what happened with the people, they would not go to China. They built a lot of it back in our country. They would make it here instead. And in addition to that, we were taking in billions and billions and billions of dollars from China.
Biden is rewarding US firms that create jobs to Communist China
But in all fairness to China, we made a trade deal with them, this was prior to COVID. And once COVID happened, I no longer cared so much about the great deal, because what happened with that was just disgraceful. But that’s one of the things, that’s one of the reasons that right now our farmers are doing so good. I used to tell China, “Look, look, go and get lot of wheat. Get a lot of different things. All of the things we just talked about, you better go out and do it because this country has not been treated fairly by you for many, many years. Many, many years.” We used to lose 504 billion dollars trade deficit with China. 500, not million, 504 dollars million is a lot, right? You know that through the World Health Organization. Now take 504 million, make it 504 billion dollars. We had deficits with China.
Companies that leave America to create jobs in China and other countries
that have ripped us off for years, should not be rewarded.
It was absolutely insane that this could keep going on. It’s amazing that you still have a country left. The people that did this to our country, they should be ashamed of themselves. They should be ashamed of themselves.
Companies that leave America to create jobs in China and other countries that have ripped us off for years, should not be rewarded. They should be tarriffed, fined, and punished.
They should not be rewarded but that is what the Biden administration is doing. But of course, as you know, they have a very close, personal relationship with China. So I don’t expect much to happen. It’s a shame because it really is a threat. It’s a tremendous economic threat. And thank God we’ve rebuilt our military, but it’s a tremendous economic threat. Never forget it.
These are the convictions that define our movement today and must define the Republican Party in the years ahead. Very simple, it’s really quite simple, isn’t it?
The electoral process in the United States is a disgrace
Another one of the most urgent issues facing the Republican Party is that of ensuring fair, honest, and secure elections. Such a disgrace. Such a disgrace. Such a disgrace. We must pass comprehensive election reforms and we must do it now.
The democrats use the China virus as an excuse to change all of the election rules without the approval of their state legislatures, making it therefore illegal. It had a massive impact on the election. Again, you have to go to the legislatures to get these approvals. This alone would have easily changed the outcome of the election at levels that you wouldn’t have even believed. Even with COVID, even with all of the things, the numbers are staggering. We can never let this or other abuses of the 2020 election be repeated or happen again. Can never let that happen again.
You see what is going on. We have been set back so greatly with other countries and with the world. We need election integrity and election reform immediately. Republicans should be the party of honest elections that can give everyone confidence in the future of our country. Without honest elections, who has confidence? Who has confidence?
This issue is being studied and examined, but the reality is you cannot have a situation where ballots are indiscriminately pouring in from all over the country, tens of millions of ballots, where are they coming from? They are coming all over the place. We are illegal aliens and dead people are voting, and many other horrible things are happening that are too voluminous to even mention. But people know. I mean it is being studied and the level of dishonesty is not to be believed.
We have a very sick and corrupt electoral process that must be fixed immediately. This election was rigged and the Supreme Court and other courts did not want to do anything about it.
The Supreme Court failed in the election process
If you just take that one element where they did not go through a legislature, it is illegal, you can not do it. It is in the constitution. They did not have the courage, the supreme court, they did not have the courage to act, but instead used process and lack of standing. I was told the President of the United States has no standing. It is my election, it is your election. We have no standing. We had almost 25 … if you think of it … we had almost 20 states go into the Supreme Court so that we did not have a standing problem. They rejected it.
They should be ashamed of themselves for what they have done to our country. They did not have the guts or the courage to make the right decision. They did not want to talk about it. We had the case led by the great State of Texas. 18 States went in. “You do not have standing. Let us not talk about it." They did not have the guts to do what should be done.
And that is on top of all of these other forms of cheating, but this is the most basic of all. They would have local courts and local politicians change the rules in some cases a day or two before the election. This should never be allowed to happen to another presidential candidate or presidential race, should never be allowed to happen.
Today I want to outline the steps that we must take to have an election system in this country that is honest, fair, and accurate. We need one election day, not 45, 30. One day, like it has been. The Republicans do not get this, and the other things I am going to say, that you should, like the Supreme Court, be ashamed of yourselves.
The only people that should be allowed to vote by mail are people that can be proven to be either very sick or out of the country or military where they ca not do it. One day. They have millions and millions of ballots sitting around all over the place for long periods of time. Gee, I wonder what happens with those ballots? I wonder what happens. It is common sense. It is a disgrace. It is an absolute disgrace.
There should be a legitimate reason for someone to vote absentee, has to have a reason. We should eliminate the insanity of the mass and very corrupt mail-in voting. We must have voter ID. voter ID. To get into the Democratic National Convention, when they had the convention, you needed voter ID. You needed an ID card. You couldn’t get it unless you had an ID. So many people told me, “You can not get in that place. You need ID. Nobody had ID.” You need voter ID. They know that. This is a con job. They are conning everybody. They know that.
They know the wall was good. They knew the wall would work, but did not want to have it because we wanted. I made one big mistake in the world. I should have said, “We will not have a wall.” And then they would have said, “Let us build a wall.” I made a big mistake. I made a big mistake. I am sorry. It took us a year and a half extra because of that mistake. “We will not have a wall.” “We need a wall immediately,” said Chuck Schumer.
We need universal signature matching. They want to pass a bill where you do not have to match signatures, where signatures don’t mean anything. Now they know it is … just like with the wall, just like with voter ID, when you need to go into anything that is Democrat run, you need it. But for voting, which is our most sacred institution, they do not want to let you have it.
There should be a 100 per cent requirement to verify the citizenship of every person who votes and there must be a chain of custody protections for every ballot. Every ballot. And you saw what happened in Detroit and Philadelphia and many other places, swing states mostly. All over, but swing states mostly. You saw what happened. You saw what was going on. You saw that more people … you take a look at the votes, when you have more votes than you have people, that’s a problem, right?
We have a little problem adjusting in Detroit. We seem to have more votes than we have people, a lot more votes, and election changing number. We are not talking about a number where you can not … no, these aren’t election changing numbers. In Pennsylvania, they had hundreds of thousands of more votes than they had people voting. What’s that all about? Cheating they say. Yeah, I would say so.
In the history of our country, and it has taken place for years in Pennsylvania and Detroit and various other places. But there is tremendous, never like this, because they used COVID as a way of cheating. That is what happened. And everybody knows it. Hundreds of thousands and millions of ballots. They used it as a way of getting what they’ve wanted for many years. And the republicans have to do something about it. They better do something about it. Our election process is worse than that in many cases of a third world country.
All of the election integrity measures in the world will mean nothing
if we do not have free speech
You know that, you saw what was going on. Even if you consider nothing else, it is undeniable that election rules were illegally changed at the last minute in almost every swing state with the procedures rewritten by local politicians … you are not allowed to do that … and local judges. They want more time, they want this, they want that. All done by local politicians or local judges, as opposed to state legislatures as required by the Constitution of the United States. And these are just numbers that are massive.
These are not little numbers, these are numbers that in each state is a transformative number. It changes the outcome of the election. And it is not close. Regardless of your political views, this should concern you as a constitutional matter. And the Supreme Court, again, did not have the guts or the courage to do anything about it. And neither did other judges.
Democrats even admitted in Time Magazine, which is, I would say on the liberal side. They just could not hold it in. They had to brag about it. It is a disaster for our country that we can allow something so corrupt to happen. Read that article. I really encourage you. Yet all of the election integrity measures in the world will mean nothing if we do not have free speech and that is where we are at now.
If Republicans can be censored for speaking the truth and calling out corruption, we will not have democracy and we will have only left wing tyranny. We can do this. We are smarter than they are. We are tougher than they are. For some reason we do not get it done. We let them attack our businesses and we do not attack their businesses. I believe your numbers are bigger than their numbers, but you are nicer than they are. You are not as vicious as they are.
In the past, we would debate. I would have it. I debate. You have seen me for many years. They throw something. I debate. They debate. Who knows who wins? People go. They vote. They see what happens. But they would have an idea. They would disagree. The public would hear it. The debate and discourse would take place. And then somebody would make a decision. You would win. You would lose. The public would make up its mind. But now there isn’t a debate because they refuse to allow our side to even speak or be heard. They don’t want debate because we have easy victories in a debate, very easy victories. It’s called common sense. It’s called other things, but it’s called common sense. So they don’t want to debate.
Now there is not a debate because they refuse to allow our side to even speak or be heard.
They do not want debate because we have easy victories in a debate.
The time has come to break up big tech monopolies and restore fair competition. Republicans, conservatives must open up more platforms and repeal Section 230 Liability Protection. And if the federal government refuses to act, then every state in the union where we have the votes… which is a lot of them… Big tech giants, like Twitter, Google and Facebook should be punished with major sanctions whenever they silence Conservative voices. And Governor Ron Desantis of Florida, and in Texas and other states are doing this. If they do what they are doing, Florida… And that legislation will pass and Texas and others will have tremendous power to do what is right and what is fair.
We have no time to waste. Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats in Congress are racing to pass a flagrantly unconstitutional attack on the First Amendment and the integrity of our elections known as HR One. Do you know what HR one is? It’s a disaster.
Their bill would drastically restrict political speech, empower the federal government to shut down dissent and turn the federal election commission into a partisan political weapon. In addition, it virtually eliminates voter ID requirements nationwide. Effectively ends all registration deadlines. Can you believe this? Requires states to give ballots to felons. Automatically registers every welfare recipient to vote and puts unaccountable unelected bureaucrats in charge of drawing congressional districts. That is going to be a lot of fun. This monster must be stopped. It cannot be allowed to pass.
Now more than ever is the time for tough, strong, and energetic Republican leaders who have spines of steel. We need strong leadership. We cannot have leaders who show more passion for condemning their fellow Americans than they have ever shown for standing up to Democrats, the media and the radicals who want to turn America into a socialist country.
Top establishment Republicans in Washington should be opposing Biden
Instead of attacking me and more importantly, the voters of our movement, top establishment Republicans in Washington should be spending your energy and opposing Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, and the Democrats. I have said to some of them, I said, “You know, during the Obama years, and now during Biden, if you spent the same energy on attacking them, you’d actually be successful as you do on attacking me in many cases.”
The Democrats do not have grand-standers like Mitt Romney, little Ben Sasse, Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Pat Toomey; and in the House, Tom Rice, South Carolina, Adam Kinzinger, Dan Newhouse, Anthony Gonzalez. That is another beauty. Fred Upton, Jamie Herrera Butler, Peter Meyer, John Katko, David Valadeo. And of course the warmonger, a person that loves seeing our troops fighting, Liz Cheney. How about that? The good news is in her state, she’s been censured. And in her state, her poll numbers have dropped faster than any human being I’ve ever seen. So hopefully, they will get rid of her with the next election. Get rid of them all.
Democrats are vicious. Remember this. It’s true. Democrats are vicious. He said evil. Well, there is evil there, but they’re vicious. They’re smart. And they do one thing. You’ve got to hand it to them. They always stick together. You don’t have Mitt Romney’s in the group. They always stick together.
The RINOs that we’re surrounded with will destroy the Republican Party
and the American worker and will destroy our country itself.
Fortunately for the Republican party, the Democrats have horrible policies like open borders, sanctuary cities, defunding the police and the ridiculous, totally ridiculous Green New Deal. So they stick together. They are smart. They are vicious. They have got everything going, but their policies are no good. So hence we have, congratulations, the Republican Party. After this, they may not stick with those policies. We have to be careful. No, their policies are horrible. Think of it. Defund the police. How did that work out?
But the Republicans do not stick together. The RINOs that we’re surrounded with will destroy the Republican Party and the American worker and will destroy our country itself. The RINOs, Republican in name only. But the Republican Party is united.
The only division is between a handful of Washington, DC, establishment, political hacks, and everybody else all over the country. I think we have tremendous unity. When you look at the crowds outside that want your seat so badly. They will take your seat in two seconds. They want your seat. Congratulations. Congratulations on getting in, by the way. I’m very proud.
That is why I am announcing that I will be actively working to elect strong, tough and smart Republican leaders.
Speaking of that, I heard Jim Jordan did a great job. I heard that from Mark Meadows. I heard it. Oh, there he is. Look at that. Hi Jim. I heard you were great. In fact, I hated to follow you. I want to follow other people. I could name them too. I like to follow other people. I heard you were great. Thank you, Jim, very much. Jim Jordan, great, great athlete. People do not know he was a great wrestler, tremendous numbers of victories. The NC… He was a champion. He was college champion for a long period of time. He is a winner and a leader and he does not play games. He likes to win. He likes to win. And we have a lot of people in our party that like to win, Jim. Right? But I heard you were great. Thank you very much.
We want Republican leaders who are loyal to the voters and who will work proudly for the vision that I have laid out today. And what is it? So simple. So simple. Military, law and order, great trade deals, great education. So simple. I do not know. Does anybody get it? What are they doing? Does anybody get it?
It has just been stated that President Trump’s endorsement is the most powerful asset in politics. You believe that? Who would’ve thought that was going to happen? Who would have thought that was going to happen, Jim? In last year’s congressional primaries, 120… Listen to this. It is crazy. 120 of 122 candidates I endorsed won… 120. That’s almost as good as Jim is wrestling record. And the two that lost were beaten by people claiming to be more Trump than their opponent. So I like those two people very much also.
In the Senate, I was undefeated in endorsements with a record of 21 and 0. My endorsement of Mitch McConnell, at his request… It is all right. He made a request. He asked for my endorsement. Brought him from one point down to 20 points up and he won his race in the great state and actually the great Commonwealth of Kentucky. And he won it. And he won it very easily. And I said, “I wonder if I am doing the right thing here?” But you know what? I did… I did what I did. But he went from one point down to 20 points up very quickly, immediately actually. And he won his race. And if you compare that to his other elections, I am sure you will see something interesting. But you know what?
We got a Republicans elected. And now we have to use Republicans to
take care of the election frauds and all of the other things that are happening
that shouldn’t be allowed to happen in our country.
We got a Republican elected. And now we have to use Republicans to take care of the election frauds and all of the other things that are happening that shouldn’t be allowed to happen in our country. It’s very simple.
Because of my efforts campaigning, we had huge gains in the House. And I helped keep many senators in their seats and they will admit it. So that it is now 50/50, instead of Republicans being down anywhere from eight to 10 seats. And they will admit it. We would be down eight to 10 seats if I did not campaign. We held rallies for some of the senators that went down and nobody talks about that. Nobody wants to talk. The press does not talk about it. With me at the top of the ticket, not a single Republican member of Congress lost their race. For the first time in decades, we won 26 of 26 toss up races, toss ups.
Think of that, 26 of 26. And those are toss ups. Those are races that could go any way. We were expected to lose 25 seats. And instead we won 15 seats and almost… Oh, why could not we have done a couple of more? Almost cost Crazy Nancy her job. We’ll do that the next time around.
I received almost… Listen to this number. Because the fake news does not ever talk about these numbers. I just heard this one for the first time. I received almost 1.5 million more votes than all of the Republican House candidates combined. So how the hell is it possible that we lost? It is not possible. I got more votes. I got more. And which it is not just me. When I say, “I,” I am talking about we.
I received almost 1.5 million more votes than all of the Republican House candidates combined.
And which it is not just me. When I say, “I,” I am talking about We.
We, we got more votes than any incumbent, any incumbent president in the history of our country, almost 75 million votes. And that does not include the votes and ballots they threw out. If you include them, you will see numbers that are much different. We did even better in the second election than we did in the first. I won the first. We won the second. We did much better. Sort of strange, right? “How did you do?” “Well we did much better the second time.” “Oh, you did, really?”
What a disgrace, what a disgrace to our country. I got over 11 million, very close to 12 million more votes than we got in 2016. And I was told by John McLaughlin that if… a great poster… We had 63 in 2016, 63 million. “Sir, if you get to 66 million you have it made.” We got to almost 75 million and what the hell happened? What happened? What happened when they closed all of the counting booths? What happened at three o’clock in the morning? What happened at 3:02 in the morning? What happened?
No President has ever lost an election after carrying Florida, Ohio, and Iowa. And I won them all and I won them by a lot, by a lot. I won 94 per cent of the primary vote. No incumbent President who received more than 75 per cent of the primary vote has ever lost an election. I had a record number. And no President has ever, ever… We’re talking about a much lower number than we got… Has ever lost an election.
Thanks to my coattails… Thank you. We have to have a sense of humor. Thanks to my coattails, democrats failed to flip a single state legislature… Think of it… Or a legislative chamber because Republicans came out to vote for me. Now they say it differently. The press, the fake news spins it differently. They say, “Despite how well they did, Trump did not win.” That is such a lie. And many legislators, many legislators told me, they said, they’re going to lose their race. Wasn’t going to happen.
And then what happened is one in particular told me from a great swing state said, “You know, I thought I was going to lose my position, lose my race. And I went out with my wife the night before the election. And I saw all these Trump signs and the American flags and the spirit on the streets. I said, ‘You know, darling, I think we’re going to win.’”He said, “But you were far, far, far more popular than me.” They do lots of polls. “You were way, way ahead of me, sir. And the next day I was right.” He said he won the election by a lot, “And you lost the election. And sir, it’s not possible that you lost because you’ve got a lower number than I did. And you were so far ahead of me. You are the person that brought everybody out to vote.” And I happen to agree with that 1,000 per cent. Never forget that conversation. He could not believe it. And I have it from more than one.
And in November, 18 of 19 Bellwether County’s… You heard about the Bellwether County’s… 18 of 19 Bellwether County’s that have correctly predicted every Presidential election for decades, many decades, voted for Trump, not for Biden. And it was a shocker to those people that go for the stats. It was a shocker. They voted for Trump. 18 of 19 voted for Trump. There has never been anything like that. And yet, did Biden win? No.
If you want to help us take back the future of our country, go to donaldjtrump.com. I do not do this. I have never done this. But it is time that we have to put forces together because these people with their big tech and the fake news media right back there. Okay. And when you talk about election, they turn off. When you talk about… They probably have them going, because they also care about ratings. But when they talk about election, they turn off the cameras. You know why? It’s a very sore subject. Okay? They do not like that subject.
There is only one way to contribute to our efforts, to elect America first Republican conservatives. And in turn, to make America great again. And that is through Save America PAC and donaldjtrump.com. So go out there and do whatever you can because we’re going to help a lot of great people.
The path ahead will not be easy, but we will win. We are going to win.
We know the right people to help. We need your help to win and to fight big tech and the radical left and the DC establishment. We need to save your Second Amendment, which is under siege. We need to help protect funding for our military and for our great vets. And that is what we are doing. As we discussed earlier, we’re in a struggle for the survival of America as we know it. This is a struggle. This is a terrible, terrible, painful struggle.
The path ahead will not be easy, but we will win. We are going to win. Ultimately we always win. And when we do, history will show that this was the moment when we could have given up, when we could have despaired, but instead we chose to keep on pushing forward. The greater the challenge and tougher the task, the more determined we must be to pull through to triumph. We have to have triumph. We have to have victory.
With the talent and dedication of everyone here today… And you have tremendous, not only dedication, tremendous talent in this room. I know many of you. That is exactly what we will do. We will go on to victory. We will summon the spirit of generations of American patriots before us, like those heroes who crossed the Delaware, conquered the Rockies, stormed the beaches, won the battles and tamed the unknown frontiers.
We will persist and we will prevail. We’re tougher than they are. We’re stronger than they are. Together, in the coming years, we will carry forward the torch of American liberty.
We will lead the conservative movement and the Republican Party back to a totally conclusive victory. And we’ve had tremendous victories. Don’t ever forget it. With your help, we will take back the House. We will win the Senate. And then a Republican President will make a triumphant return to the White House. And I wonder who that will be? I wonder who that will be. Who, who will that be? I wonder.
Standing before you today, I am supremely confident that for our movement, for our party and for our country, our brightest days are just ahead. And that together we will make America prouder, freer, stronger and greater than it ever has been before.
Donald Trump, President of the United States (2017-2021)
