4:29 am
pres. trump: do we have a great country or what? great country. hello, houston. , wererilled to be back you treated me very well during a certain election two years ago. with all my friends from the ,one star state, a special special place. thank you very much for being here. this is some record crowd. and they just told me we broke the record, but we would really break it if we can get all the people outside in here. we would break it three times.
4:30 am
say, true what they everything in texas is just bigger. [cheering] pres. trump: bigger. in just 15 days, the people of texas are going to reelect a man who has become a really good friend of mine. you know, we had are really little difficulties. at the beginning, it was a lovefest. the fake news back here -- [booing] remember they kept saying when is it going to break up? we had a rally in washington dc together and nobody could believe it. they said what is going on? what are you doing. andad the rally together send it got nasty.
4:31 am
and then it ended. and i will tell you, nobody has helped me more with your tax cuts, with your regulation, with all of the things that we are doing including military and the vets then senator ted cruz. nobody. he defended your jobs. he defended your borders. we are defending the order, by the way. in case you haven't noticed.
4:32 am
we are defending the border. he defends your families. we are defending together, with a lot of other great republicans, your freedom. [cheering] early voting is underway. get out there and vote. if you would like to leave now, go ahead. go vote and come back. get behind 50,000 people. the big screens out for them. let's waved to them. wave. [cheering] you got a better location. ted is leading congress for more tax cuts. i just left kevin brady. how great is kevin brady? [cheering] he is here. we are putting a 10% tax cut for middle income families. it is going to be put in next quarter. 10% tax cut. kevin brady is working on it. we have been working on it for a few months. that is in addition to the big tax cuts you have already gotten. this one is for middle income. no business. business is good and they are coming back and jobs are coming back. plants and factories are coming back like never before.
4:33 am
this is for middle income people. 10%. [cheering] the democrats -- i can't speak, i'm sorry. instead of a tax cut, a tax raise, they are for open borders, meaning crime and massive tax cuts. they are against law enforcement, against ice. they are against the military and they are not good to veterans. how do you win on that platform? we have done the biggest regulation cuts in the history of the country. i am only here for almost two years, less than two years, if
4:34 am
you think about it. we have already done more tax cuts and more regulation cuts than any other president in the history of it there for years. 12 years. we want people to come into our country. we have 3.7% unemployment but they have to come and legally and they have to come in through merit. [cheering] [chanting build the wall] that is happening.
4:35 am
we started the wall. they have another billion six and a third billion six. what is happening right now is a caravan. [booing] do you know how the caravan started? the democrats had something to do with it. they are saying, i think we made a big mistake. people are seeing how bad it is, how pathetic it is, how that our laws are. that is an assault on our country. [cheering] in the caravan are some very bad people. we cannot let that happen to our country.
4:36 am
i was just talking to your governor and senator and attorney general, who i will be introducing. a lot of your people are going to form a wall, a different kind, until we get it built. we need a wall built fast. we have to protect our border. if we do not have borders, we do not have a country. ted, you probably saw, did a beautiful job in staring down an angry left wing mob in our recent supreme court battle victory. [cheering] he was great. thanks to ted, and other great republicans. we had no help from the other side.
4:37 am
we have a brand-new member of the united states supreme court, justice brett kavanaugh. [cheering] also, this is an honor because you have had many presidents and they never get to put a justice on this in. the story of our lives. i have been there less than two years and i have two of them. because we also have a fantastic new justice and neil gorsuch. just confirmed. we have a record number of circuit court judges. [cheering] we fully expect that to go to an all-time record.
4:38 am
percentagewise it is up there. percentagewise, has more justices, federal judges appointed, than any other president? who is it? who appointed the highest percentage of justices? [cheering] no. hillary clinton did not make it. remember. you will never guess. george washington. after george washington. why? because he is. he did 100%. nobody is ever going to break the record of george washington. [applause]
4:39 am
good old george. he never told a lie. that is what they say. he never told a lie. he did 100% of the judges. we are getting close. what the radical democrats did to justice kavanagh and his beautiful family is a national disgrace. they were on a ruthless submission to obstruct, resist, delay, demolished, and destroy. they are lousy politicians and have horrible policy but they stick together. the only thing they have. they always stick together. other than that, they are not doing too well. if you want the fake news media to finally investigate -- [booing]
4:40 am
by the way, -- [chanting] [cheering] don't worry. i do not like them either. look at this. here we are doing a rally for ted and it is great and there are a lot of people. look how many made it. this is the academy awards,
4:41 am
which has gone down the tubes. look how many. look how many. look at them. [cheering] do you recognize many of those happy faces? i know every one of them. i know everyone of them and 15% of them are great. [laughter] i know everyone. every one. if you want the news to finally investigate hillary clinton -- [cheering] man. [cheering]
4:42 am
i did not do it. i didn't do it. i didn't do it. if you want them to investigate, we will have to nominate hillary clinton to the u.s. supreme court. how do you like that? let's see how she does. if judge kavanaugh had to go through what he went through -- he is a fine man -- can you imagine hillary up there? that would take 3-4 years of questions. [laughter] at stake in this election is whether we continue the extraordinary prosperity we have achieved or whether we let the radical democrat mob take a giant wrecking ball and destroy our country and our economy.
4:43 am
the unemployment rate fell to the lowest level in more than 50 years. five oh. here is one hard to beat. the number of americans working at this moment -- the number of americans working has reached the highest in the history of our country. all time high. [cheering] we have eliminated a record number of job killing
4:44 am
regulations. that is one of the reasons are companies are coming back. republicans passed the biggest tax cut and reforming history with massive tax cuts for the middle class. we are adding 10% to those numbers. we have saved family farms, ranches, and small businesses from the estate tax, also known as the death tax. [cheering] most of you love your children. some of you don't. [laughter] the ones who don't, don't listen to me. if you don't love your children and if your children did not treat you good, do not leave them anything. [laughter] give it to charity or somebody else. for those of you who would like your small businesses, farms, ranches left to your children instead of having your children go out when you kick the bucket. sad day.
4:45 am
two or three dave later they are happy as how. forget it. [laughter] they don't have to go out and borrow a tremendous amount of money to pay the estate tax. they don't have to borrow anything. there is no tax. nobody talks about it. that was in our tax cuts. a lot of small business, farms, ranches -- there will be no tax. that is great. only if you love them. anybody in here does not love their child? anybody? [booing and cheering] a couple of you. two people. my administration also ended the fourth of war on american energy, something you people know a lot about.
4:46 am
we withdrew the u.s. from the unfair one sided paris climate accord, which was putting us out of business. on day one, i approved the keystone and the code access pipeline. day one. they spent years and years trying to get these pipelines built. by the way, we are speeding up the process for your pipelines that you desperately need in texas to get the oil to its destination.
4:47 am
we are speeding it up. i have heard so much. with texas leading the way, the u.s. is now -- this happened over a short period of time -- the largest producer of crude oil and natural gas anywhere in the world. [cheering] we are the number one energy producer in the world. who would think that? we are going to get the pipelines rapidly. i called the agencies and said get them approved. if there is a problem, let them know about the problem immediately. we do not take 20 years and say we cannot approve it. let them know immediately. for the first time in more than 60 years, america is an exporter of it natural gas. here is good news for texas.
4:48 am
just today, germany is chancellor angela merkel has announced her country will purchase massive amounts of lng. great news for your state. [cheering] i told all of the european nations it is not fair -- there all of the horrible trade and balances. they are not taking advantage anymore. under republican leadership, america is winning again. america is a respected again because we are putting america first. [cheering] we are putting america first. it hasn't happened in decades. we are taking care of ourselves for a change.
4:49 am
[cheering] thank you. i like that guy. radical democrats want to turn back the clock and rule and corrupt power hungry globalists. you know what a globalists is, right? a person who wants the globe to do well, frankly, not caring about our country so much. we cannot have that. they have a word. it sort of became old-fashioned. it is called a nationalist. we're not supposed to use that word. i am a nationalist, ok. i am a nationalist. [cheering]
4:50 am
nationalist. use the word. [chanting usa] they reported yesterday that donald trump is unpopular with the nation, one of the most unpopular presidents in the history of polling. i said, of course i am unpopular with foreign nations because they are not letting them rip us up anymore. they meant it to be banned. to this the 30% and why would they vote for them? honestly, you are treating
4:51 am
everybody good. when we protect with our military, the greatest in the world, and now it is a lot better, we have to be reimbursed for the protection. we are protecting the wealthiest nations in the world. we are subsidizing them. they take advantage of us. those days are over. time to be fair. [cheering] the most unpopular president. think of that. i am one of the most popular presidents in this country. [cheering] in our country.
4:52 am
a couple of polls came out today that were very good. they did not want to announce them. they paid for the polls. we have a new poll out. let me see. let's get to another subject. [laughter] the democrats want to replace freedom with socialism. [booing] they want to replace texas values with nancy pelosi values. [booing] and they want to replace the rule of law that the rule of the mob. that is what is happening. democrats would rather destroy american communities then defend america's borders. got to vote for ted cruz. [cheering]
4:53 am
the democrats are a big risk to the american family and our country. we cannot afford to take those kind of risks. this will be the election of the caravan, kavanaugh, law and order, tax cuts, and common sense. [cheering] ted opponent in this race is a stone cold phony. named robert francis o'rourke. [booing]
4:54 am
sometimes referred to as beto. he pretends to be a moderate. he is actually a radical open borders left winger. i know texas well. do not forget, they tried to convince you on election night that texas is in play. i would go to a thing and room or the lines i would have for the speeches. remember the lines? i hate to tell you, i think the lines are bigger tonight than two years ago. because i produced. [cheering] because i produced. the lines are bigger tonight and it is easier. two years ago, i had to say, we will give you tax cuts, we will cut regulations. it was all words. now i have produced so this is easy. [cheering]
4:55 am
in fact, some of those guys will say i produced more than i promised, which is true. which is true, actually. o'rourke voted against the tax cuts and went against tax cuts with job killing regulations and taxes that were really hurting jobs and companies. beto supports a socialist takeover of health care. it will triple your taxes and it will not be enough. and it will be lousy health care. you will end up waiting for five weeks to see a doctor. i heard ted say just before it went on, this is the beauty, i don't know of armory -- anybody who had earned this rating, he got an f from the nra. one of the few. an f means they want to take away your guns.
4:56 am
n f.ver even heard of a do we love louie? look at him. louie gohmert. [cheering] i do not know what his rating is but i assume it is an a plus. a plus plus. he has guts. they defend you. and they defend your second amendment. if ted does not win, the second amendment will be in trouble. his opponent voted against the border wall, case law, and voted -- kate law, and he voted for obama amnesty.
4:57 am
he voted to shield ms 13 gang members from deportation. he doesn't want to deport them. he says they are people. they are people. they carve you up with a knife, but they are people. voted in favor of sanctuary cities resulting in the death of countless americans. today's democratic party would rather protect illegal aliens than american citizens which is why democrats must be voted out of office. we need more republicans. [cheering] a vote for a democrat thisvoteor congress to nancy pelosi, chuck schumer, and the great maxine waters, that's the beauty. maxine waters. [booing]
4:58 am
did you get that one? maxine. she would be in charge of your finances. [booing] good old maxine. low iq individual. [laughter] low iq. how about this one? senator dianne feinstein. [booing] the mayor who did one of the worst jobs of any mayor other than the guy running for governor in florida. it was a horrible mayor. cory booker. he destroyed what he did. he was so bad. and a sad thing happened last week. because elizabeth warren was fraudd as being a total
4:59 am
and i can no longer call her pocahontas because she has no indian blood. [cheering] i cannot call her pocahontas. she does not qualify. i've been saying for a long time. i've been saying for a year and a half that i have more indian blood then she does, and i have none. but i cannot use the name pocahontas anymore. but i will anyways. is that ok with you? we have to keep her down. the people of texas will make a giant and beautiful stand. you are going to elect a republican house.
5:00 am
they are getting a little nervous. about a month ago, they were talking about this blue wave. you do not hear about the blue wave. you do not hear it for much. the blue wave is being dissipated a little bit. are you still talking about the blue wave? [booing] the blue wave is coming. let me tell you. you have to get out and vote. the party that has the presidency -- i do not know why. i guess you get a little sedate or something. you lose something. two times since the great depression, it was a positive.
5:01 am
nobody ever had the condition of ever producing the greatest economy and history of our country. i do not understand why we would lose the house. history is against us, but the fact i with us. -- the facts are with us. we can keep making america great again. [cheering] we will be changing. let me ask your advice. texas is more and tough. make america great again is the greatest slogan in the history of politics. what does she have? some debate slogan like stay together. -- stupid slogan like stay together. i got up and said see, that is all she can talk about is herself.
5:02 am
they paid her a million dollars for that slogan and changed it the next day. they decided not to do that. make america great again. now we are running, we are doing good. we have exceeded -- created $11 trillion. we are hitting china hard. we are doing this. $11.7 trillion. it was always china is doing so great, everything china. what about us? we are down. we are not done anymore. we are way up.
5:03 am
[cheering]ay, want china to do well, but they were down 32% over the last six months and w went way up. $11.7 trillion we created. china has lost about $20 trillion. we want them to be happy and do well, but they had to treat us fairly. they will. they have a wonderful, great leader, and they will. the choice in november cannot because -- could not be more clear. republicans produce jobs. [cheering]
5:04 am
thank you. thank you everybody. these are great people. honestly, you know we were here a lot. did we help you with that lousy hurricane? that was brutal. i never saw anything like it. it kept coming in. it was taunting us. it was and and then it went out. then it dumped and then it went out. three times. i am paying for that. is this ever going to stop or go away? that was a brutal hurricane.
5:05 am
you know what was fantastic? the u.s. coast guard. it was a big deal and it was a lot of water. these guys with ". -- the little boats. they want to go into the hurricane to show their wife had great they are? they get out there and they i am dead. let me ask you a question. the coast guard saved in texas more than any other place. in texas, the u.s. coast guard saved 16,000 lives. think about that. these are great people.
5:06 am
i said let me ask you a question. what happens? they want to go out and play at the edge, but there was no edge. it gobbled them up. how big is a thing like that? you are looking at -- they said we have the greatest boats, but if we hit that wrong, we go down just like anybody else. they ride the crest, they come in and save a lot of people and go back out. the coast guard, their brand has appreciated more than any other brand in this country. the u.s. coast guard.
5:07 am
they did a great job. [cheering] next time, all you guys come when there is a hurricane, do you not take your boat out. get out of town for a little while. that was brutal. fema was great. first responders was great. incredible. we are honored to be joined this evening by many great republican leaders. here tonight is a man who is incredible. he is a man with tremendous spirit. he asked me for more money than any other human being have asked. his name happens to be governor greg abbott. where is he?

people all across the great state of texas. this election, you can send a message to the radical democrat. do not mess with texas. vote for ted cruz and vote republican. a future under democratic rule would be a total catastrophe. democrats in congress have already signed up for a socialist takeover of health care that would eliminate private insurance of more than 15 million texans. the democrat plan would destroy medicare and terminate medicare advantage for 1.4 million texas seniors who depend on it. republicans want to protect medicare for our great seniors who have earned it and paid for it for a long time.
5:20 am
republicans will always protect american with pre-existing conditions. we protect you. the plan to destroy american health care. thank you very the american taxpayer. they absolutely want to be able to vote. do not worry about it. the illegals -- i had -- hate to tell you they voted anyway and they are not supposed to. they got so many people voting a legally in this country, it is a disgrace.
5:21 am
voter id. you have to put your voter id on everything. the only thing you have to do it for is when you vote. republicans believe we should protect public benefits for truly needy americans, not illegal aliens. as we speak, the democrat party is openly encouraging millions of a legal aliens to break our laws, violate our borders and overwhelm our nation. the democrats have launched an assault on the sovereignty of
5:22 am
our country. the security of our nation and the safety of every single american. the crisis on our border as least the is the sole result of democrat laws and activists. democrat judges that prevent us from returning illegal aliens from central america and all over the world. it is called catch and release. [booing] you know what catch and release is. you have these people from border patrol. these are great people. ice and border control. a tough job. they catch them and then they release them. they say you have to come back for a court case. you have to come back in two years for a court case. number one, they never come back. 3% -- and i do not believe that 3%. we release them into the country because that is what the
5:23 am
democrats want. a lot of bad things happen when that happens. the democrats do not care what their extremist agenda will do to your neighborhoods, hospitals or your schools. they do not care that the last illegal immigration will totally bankrupt our country because all the democrats care about is regaining power, no matter how they have to go about doing it. all the witchhunts want to gain power. we will not let them gain power. and that is why the democrats all support catch and release. that is why they support visa lottery. countries put name in a batch and you pick them. then you have nothing but problems. you think those countries are putting their finance? i do not think so. -- their finest?
5:24 am
i do not think so. a guy comes in -- as an example, midwest highway in manhattan. a beautiful highway. he is driving a car down and decides he is going to make a right into the park where everyone is working on exercising, running and bicycling. he knocks everything down, including killing eight people. they never talk about the people who are wounded, when they lose their arms, legs and there -- their life can never be the same. they do not talk about the 12 people that lost something so important. will these are people in a park where they go to exercise, so they can be in perfect shape.
5:25 am
i go home months later without their legs, without their arms. will this animal, going at a very fast speed makes the decision to make a right into the park and run people over. he is here. it is called a chain migration. he is here. in a his mother comes with him, his father comes, his uncle, his aunt come his brother, his nephew, his sister. 22 people. no jobs, just 22 people. no more chain migration. democrats want to give illegal aliens free welfare and the right to vote. that is why they want to abolish ice.
5:26 am
you will see it over the next two weeks. i am stuck with it. i want to change it, but we have a tiny majority. i need the votes. with the senate, we need 60 votes, but we have the one. we need 60 votes. so they do not allow us to do it. they are killing and hurting innocent americans. democrat immigration policies allow poisonous drugs and ms 13 to pour into our country. democrat sanctuary cities release violent criminals from jail and straight into your neighborhoods. republicans believe our country should be a sanctuary for an law-abiding americans, not for criminal aliens. common sense.
5:27 am
the republican party will always stand proudly with the heroes of ice. these are tough people. they are great americans, but you do not want their jobs. they do not like using guns because it is too quick. ms 13 likes cutting people up and killing them like they did with two beautiful girls coming home from school. killing them, slicing them. these are evil people. that's right. he said it. they are animals. when i see -- in long island, i grew up near there. these are great town. for some reason, a lot of the ms 13 went after long island.
5:28 am
i have heard from friends of mine. we put ice in there. it is like a war. those people are clapping and screaming. these people and i walk in their and they are tougher and smarter. ms 13 respect them because none of you guys want that job. i do not want that job. i do not want that job. these are the heroes. they get them out of our country. we have removed thousands of them. they came in through the wonderful obama administration. we removed thousands of these people. the towns are liberated. you see the people clapping. it is like a war zone. these are great places, but we
5:29 am
have to cherish ice and law enforcement. we are getting the wall finished because it is an important element. even the democrats are seeing it. i got a call today. we really do need the wall. you need to have a wall. if you want to secure our borders and all the other things i just spoke about, go out and vote republican. if you want america to enter -- endure as a sovereign, independent nation, go out and vote. if you want a booming economy, go out and vote republican. in less than two years time, we
5:30 am
have created over 4.2 million new jobs and listed over 4 million americans off of route stamps. we have added 600,000 new manufacturing jobs. remember the previous administration? i will not be specific, but the head of the previous administration -- does anybody know who i am talking about? you cannot have manufacturing jobs in these -- this country. i guess we found the magic wand. the best jobs. manufacturing confidence hit an all-time high in the history of our country. economic growth last quarter reached 4.2%. they said that would not happen for years.
5:31 am
you we have another great one coming up. we had an interest rate climate. give me a zero interest rates. we are being conservative. hispanic americans, think of it. media income reached an all-time high. you hispanic american are poverty has reached an all-time low. hispanic american homeownership recently hit its highest rates in much more than a decade. african-american, asian american unemployment has reached the lowest level ever recorded in our country's history.
5:32 am
women's unemployment just fell to 3.6%, the lowest rate in 65 years. earlier this month, i announced that we are replacing the horrible nafta deal with an incredible new agreements. that is a great deal. our manufacturers are happy. you will not have countries leaving for other countries. i do not want our company is moving to other countries, firing all their people, making the product and putting it in with no tax and selling it back to our people. that is not going to happen. no more. we lost 35% of our automobile
5:33 am
business. nafta was a disaster. i do not want the name nafta. so many people worked so hard. we take in the toughest ever action to correct on -- crackdown on china's practices. we made a new trade deal for our farmers and manufacturers. we have taken bold action to reduce the price of prescription drugs. americans should not be forced to subsidize lower drug prices in other countries will paying the highest drug prices ever in the history of this world. we have gone through the process. it is a statutory process. drug prices will soon be plunging. watch.
5:34 am
a great job to help critically ill patients get life-saving treatments. a person is very sick and terminally ill and they want hope. they want to be able to get something. we have the greatest medical people. we have the greatest. people are told they are terminally ill. if we had a treatment that gave great hope and looked promising, we would not get close to letting them use it. we have something in the pipeline that looks really good. i know people who travel all over the world, looking for hope. they were looking for hope. now they sign a simple document and they go out and get it.
5:35 am
we have had tremendous results already. one of the other things, because john was very much involved. it is the ultimate test. it was very hard to get approval. it is done. i hope nobody has to use it. if you are really sick and they have something in the pipeline, you never had a chance to but now you get it. and we obtained $6 billion to fight the opioid epidemic, which is a big problem. with tad, he was incredible. with his help, we repealed the horrible obamacare, the individual mandate that everybody hated.
5:36 am
everybody hated it. and we passed veterans choice, giving our veterans the right to see a private doctor, instead of waiting in line for one month, two months, four months. and having a simple illness corrected. people stand in line so long they would have a simple problem and by the time they saw a doctor, they were terminally ill. now, they have to wait. it's our veterans have to wait, they go out and they see a private doctor. we pay the bill. we get them fixed up. we also passed for the veterans, the accountability law to ensure that anyone who mistreat our veterans -- you cannot fire
5:37 am
these people. they could do whatever they wanted to do and you could not but -- you cannot fire them. for our military, we secured money to fully rebuild the u.s. military. we are getting other countries to pay up and pay their fair share for a military protection, including nato. billions and billions of dollars. you have to pay up. they were not paying. close to $100 billion a year, we got it. they pay. we are protecting them. that is great.
5:38 am
but they have to pay. the pentagon is now working to create the sixth branch of the american armed forces, the space force. so important. people love it. it is so important. it is where it is that. to keep america safe from terrorism, we have put in place the travel ban. recently upheld by the u.s. supreme court. remember that? you'll never get it approved, mr. president. we just got it approved. i withdrew the u.s. from the horrible, one-sided nuclear deal. we have recognized israel and opened the american embassy in jerusalem.

5:42 am
of our country. i am just laying it out and telling it like it is. from dallas to el paso. from the red river to the rio grande, this date was settled by some of the toughest men and strongest women ever to walk the face of the earth. [cheering] this is the state where william kravitz and davy crockett made their last stand at the alamo. this is the state where a small band of patriots at the battle of gonzales, armed with a single cannon stared down a foreign army and declared, and take it.
5:43 am
-- come and take it. [cheering] come on. what happened? texas is the state where generations of farmers and ranchers and oil workers and pioneers built a life and a home with their own two hands. will will will you they did not have a lot of money, they did not have a lot of luxury, but they all had one thing in common. they loved their families. they love their country and they loved their god. [cheering]
5:44 am

across the country on the 50 capitals tour. we recently stopped in hartford, connecticut and, looking forward to the november midterm elections were asking folks which party should control congress and why? >> i'm an independent voter so i usually don't have a strong opinion on who takes over in midterms are presidential elections, but this year i am basically voting democratic, just because a lot of the things that have been happening in the republican party just don't sit well for me in a moral standpoint. there are a lot of people in the republican party who disagree with their leaders, but they're are not actually coming out and saying so, they're just telling the party line to toe the party line. that's where i have to draw some distinction. there are a lot of things that i find favorable in both parties and i usually tend to vote my

conscience, but this time i think i am voting for who i think will have the moral high ground. >> i think i would like to see congress go to the democrats, just to see a change in values and views and try that for a while. i'm not sure if that's going to matter, but i would like to see a change. >> as a democrat, i would like to see my party take control of congress. if the congress changes hands, and democrats are in charge we will have policies that are more prounion, pro-life, pro-environment, and a necessary check on an erratic and unreliable white house. ,> voices of from the states part of c-span's 50 capitals to our. c-span's "washington journal" live every day with news and policy issues that impact you.
