and thank you von trapp, i mean the web or. thank you. hannah, thank you very much for being here and supporting thank everyone for coming out today. thank you so much. [applause] i have a question for you. you like winning? we've got good news. we are winning. no one, no one can look at the facts. some electrocute pension tax matter, right? no one can look at the facts and say we are not winning in this country these days. it's not a republican win. it's an american when, right? america is waning every day. if you look at the economy, economy is growing at 4% per quarter. unemployment at 3.7%. business confidence is at an
all-time high, wages are going up, housing starts are going up. just today, just today the world economic forum, the organization that puts on -- they named america the united states of america our home is the most competitive economy in the world. [applause] that is the first time since 2008 and let me see, who was leaving the country -- republicans were leading the country in 2008, we are winning in this country, winning every day and it is felt across this land. and we know what the cause is. good policies washington that empower people. that tax cut that we passed last year, cutting taxes everybody. in this district nobody in the state of new jersey benefits more than people of the 11th congressional district from the tax cut that was passed last year.
an average of $6000 per family of four is the benefit that we see from that tax cut and people are feeling it everyday. right? we're doubling that standard deduction from doubling the child tax credit. agency reform, a business tax reforms that incentivize people invest in america, instead of sending their money overseas. that's what i call winning. [applause] now, , it's not just the economy you know we are winning. our soldiers and sailors, the brave men and women of armed services are winning every day with this administration. they see the largest pay increase his unit decades under this administration and this congress and they deserve it. [applause] and a strong military is essential to having a robust foreign policy, and we've got some future from the christian
academy today. there we go. -- kushner academy. this as a foreign policy our friends know that we are their friends. no find friend we have been israel. [applause] stand up for our allies in the middle east come stand up to rogue nations like iran and syria come stand up to our rivals in the far east like china and on the korean peninsula. seeking peace but always doing so on our terms, not on theirs. that is a change of course for this country. it is for the better and we are winning across the world. now, with all this winning going along, going on, why would we ever want to do something different? but that's what nancy pelosi and the democrats want to do that you want to go in a different direction. and guess what, nancy pelosi is
a hand-picked candidate for one for congress in 11th district this year. you might've heard of her. she took a a couple ads on tv. montclair mikey cheryl, if you're to turn the clock back and all the successes we've had. she said she thinks nancy pelosi been the most effective speaker we've seen in decades. are you kidding me? she applauds the legislation nancy pelosi was able to pass. are you kidding me? higher taxes, sanctuary cities, blowing up medicare with the socialized medicare scheme. are you kidding me? that's not the direction this district is going. you want to go back to the day of higher taxes? d1 sanctuary cities? you want socialized medicine? heck, no.
now, if nancy pelosi were not bad enough we had on stage at the debate last week saying she would vote for bob menendez. are you kidding me? bob menendez? it's very -- [shouting] it's very simple, folks. it's very simple. you cannot be with nancy pelosi on policy with bob menendez on ethics and with the people of the 11th congressional district. [applause] so here's what we've got to do. we've got 20 days. 20 days and battleground district. 20 days to decide who's going to go to college and who will control congress. the eyes of the world, the eyes of the nation are on us. are we going to deliver for them or let them down? we've got to deliver.
we got to deliver the people of this country not just for the people of the united states, the people of the world account on america to be strong and free and prosperous. so here's what i'm going to ask you to do. for 20 days i need you to help us get out that though. republicans vote in this district, we win. we don't vote, we won't win. starting now i need your help. conveniently, we have phonebank set up right across the way. we are going to get together and hear from the speaker of the house but immediately after i invite you to come on over. i'm going to do it. you do it. grab a phone make some calls. get out the vote. it's never been a more important in 11th congressional district to fight hard for our backyard and deliver the seat.
i know you've heard from me plenty over the last couple of months. you will hear from me more the next of weeks amid a special guest of what it bring out and i'm so grateful to him for coming up and making this district a priority. speaker paul ryan is a man i greatly admire someone who is a policy wonk at heart but a political leader by necessity. .. ♪
>> hey, how you doing? guys, how is it going, north jersey? man! you know, jay just introduced me to johanna and his kids and made me realize i'm not nearly as good a catholic as jay webber is. what a beautiful family. i've got to tell you, no pressure, but we, the rest of the country, we're all counting on you, north jersey, to deliver this man to the united states congress in 20 days. [cheers and applause] i've got to tell you, i think you understand this, but the stakes could not be higher for this country. we really are at a sort of proverbial tippingpoint or fork in the road of this nation and you can just see it. the left, they've just come unhinged. nancy pelosi and her clones
running for congress, mikey we say-- nancy pelosi and her clones running for congress are going hard left. they want to get rid of controlling our border. they want to have socialized medicine and take over and undercut medicare. they want us to move so far left we wouldn't recognize themselves. they don't call them progressi progression, they call themselves democratic socialists. and we need to have a record that needs to be advanced. in just the last less than two years, we have taken a military that was being hollowed out, a va that was a disgray, that was sweeping this -- all of these things under the rugs, and we've turned it around. our military now is back on track and being rebuilt. our va is being overhauled.
and i was there with our soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines [cheers and applause] we were there to thank them for keeping us safe and they were saying, thank president trump and this congress for making us whole again. [applaus [applause] >> they just said it. having this kind of economic growth, that doesn't happen by accident. having this kind of economic growth where the world economic forum said the u.s. economy is the best in the world, and that wasn't since 2008. what happened between then? that was the obama years. we have brought regulatory relief to small businesses. we have done things like cracking down on human trafficking, fighting opioids, overhauling career technical education making two-year school cool again. and we are having an economy where people can meet and reach
their american dreams. we've got things going well in this country. [applause] >> do you realize that there are more jobs being offered today than there are people looking for jobs in america today. the unemployment rate is the lowest it's been in 49 years. the unemployment rate for black and latino citizens is the lowest we've ever had in recorded history. [applause] >> it's fantastic. and guess what? nancy pelosi and her clones running to are congress want to undo all of that. they want to go-- bob menendez as well. you guys, seriously are not going to reelect bob menendez, are you? please. this is what is at stake. and look, you know, i've been around for a little while. i've seen people come and go in congress and i've got to tell you, you can see a person of character and integrity when
you look at jay webber. i've got to tell you, [cheers and applause] oh. the choice is clear. look, quite honestly, we don't really see a blue wave coming across the country. you know, they have been talking about this blue wave. we really don't see a blue wave. here is what we see-- that's right. red tide. here is what we see, we see a green wave of money, and this is our challenge. no, no, it's the wrong kind of green wave of money. we see liberals on the coasts trying to buy a new congress. michael bloomberg wrote a 100 million dollar check himself to defeat republicans in congress. and another guy named stire in california wrote a $100 million check to defeat republicans this congress so you see the money spigot being opened by the left to try and drown us
out. m m monclair mikey is getting the money not from this district, but from all over the country to put herself and nancy pelosi back in congress. you're not going to let that happen, are you? that's why in 20 days you've got to make sure. this election is so important, talk to your neighbors and even your relatives in this election. this election is so important, you need to make sure that people understand the stakes and the consequences. you have a very good man in jay webber. what's important about jay webber, he's proven, he's tested, he's known. he's from here. you know him, he knows you. he knows north jersey, he shares your values and he's the kind of talented person he's going to hit the ground running when he gets to congress. so thank you for being here. thank you for help jay webber! make sure you get across the finish line. help elect jay webber and defeat the nancy pelosi clone that's running against him. thank you very, very much.
