pres. trump: thank you very much, georgia. this is like being at a georgia football game. >> [crowd cheering] pres. trump: man, i only wish the media was back about 200 yards so all of those people behind them could be seen. -- could see. and we have 15,000 people in a different location. i think brian is going to do very well. going to do very well. >> [applause and cheers] pres. trump: i am thrilled to be back in this great state that by the way, we won very easily in 2016. with thousands of hard-working and wonderful american patriots, and that is what you are. in just two days the people of
georgia are going to elect brian kemp -- >> [applause and cheers] pres. trump: as your next governor. to protect your jobs, defend your borders, fight for your values, and continue to make america great again. [applause and cheers] this is one of the most important elections of our lifetime. this is a very important election. i would not say it is as important as 2016, but it is right up there. it is right up there. it really is. it has become so incredible. and there is electricity in the air like i haven't since the 2016 victories we all had together. and in fact, speaking of that, could i ask -- look at that, like the academy awards could i , ask you to turn around? they don't have to do this with
other celebrities that come here that don't have very big crowds. look at the people back there. turn around. you got to shoot it. turn the cameras around. they never turn them around, folks. they never turn them around. >> [booing] pres. trump: they never turn them. >> [booing] pres. trump: this crowd goes way, way, way back into the field. this is incredible. this is incredible, and i really wish the fake news media would show the crowds because they don't do it. they always go, donald trump gave a speech today in front of a nice crowd. there have never been crowds like this just so you understand in the history of politics. you have never had crowds like this for midterm elections.
there has never been crowds like this. people, aow all the lot of them watching on television, i get great ratings. at least this speech does. i can't say about the other ones because they don't get great ratings. it.you know what, they get they hear the noise. you cannot duplicate when you have 20,000, 30,000 people -- you cannot duplicate that sound with 500 people that are showing up to other rallies. [applause and cheers] you know, for two years we have had big crowds from the beginning. and by the way, you remember, and it is "we" not "me" -- we never -- we are all the same. we never left centerstage. you know what that means, right? we were always in first place and then we went against crooked hillary, and we did very well
there also. we never left centerstage. [applause and cheers] pres. trump: ah, what a group. what a group. you are great people. you are great people. got to tell you you built this , country, folks. you built this country. you are great people. but we never did, we never left centerstage. every debate i was right in the middle. that meant you always have the highest number. you always had the highest number. and i always insisted on having an odd number in the debate. you know why, because i wanted to be center. does that make sense? does that make sense? it makes sense.
and during our rallies we always had these massive -- the biggest the biggest they have ever seen. , and i always used to say, "turn the cameras around." they never did because they are fake news. they don't want to show. and i would say, "turn the camera around." and i will never forget. i went through four or five, and they just wouldn't show right, these massive crowds from the very beginning. right from the beginning. and then what happened is there were some protesters in one rally, like two people that live in a basement of their parents' house. [applause and cheers] and i thought the camera was very new and you couldn't change them. it was very rigid. they are steel stuff, they are very rigid. you could not turn them. and then we had a little protest in the back corner which was impossible for a camera to see. and those cameras, they looked like pretzels, the way they
turned. when they saw trouble, they were able to turn. but that is the way the press treats us, and i hope you show the real crowd that is here today. and i hope you show -- [applause and cheers] and i hope you show the thousands of people that are in another part of the airport watching this on television. thousands and thousands of additional people. [applause and cheers] they will say, "president trump and former president obama had wonderful crowds." let's, let's sort of -- >> [booing] pres. trump: but this election will decide whether we build on this extraordinary prosperity that we have created. did you see the numbers on friday? did you see those? or whether we let the radical democrats take a giant wrecking
ball to our economy and to our future. >> no. pres. trump: america now has the best economy in the history of our country. [applause and cheers] and it can be destroyed very quickly. that is why you have to get to the polls. in the last month alone, we added 250,000 jobs, and that is despite the hurricanes, which also hit a chunk of georgia -- those georgia farmers, i met with them. i was with sonny perdue, our great agricultural secretary, and i met with a lot of the farmers. and these are great people. i will never forget it, actually. these are great, great people. and one of them said, "sir, i have been growing cotton for 25 years.
this is the best crop i have ever grown. i had some problems over the last two or three years, but this will take care of all of my problems." and then the hurricane came, and in four hours there was nothing left. it was true. it was gone. that was the best cotton he had ever grown. i assume that is a man that knows cotton. i am saying, what does the best cotton mean? if i ever said that, they would say what is he talking about? , the best cotton i have ever seen. sounded like trump actually. the bestant this was crop he had ever grown, and it was -- and then boom it was gone. and i told sonny perdue who loves you and who was your governor as you know, and a popular one. and a popular governor. i guess he would still be governor if they did not have term limits. sunny was a very popular governor, and he is now the
secretary of agriculture, and i told him, we are helping those farmers in georgia. and by the way, alabama got hit. florida, florida did florida get , hit or what? we are helping them all. we are helping our farmers a lot. in addition to the deal we made with canada, mexico -- we are helping our farmers your we are going to get them over this because they got really hit. they got wiped out. great people. great people. since election day, we have created 4.5 million new jobs, and we have lifted 4.3 million people off of food stamps. think of it. [applause and cheers] jobless claims in georgia just fell to their lowest level in 45 years. [applause and cheers] pres. trump: more georgia
workers are employed today than at any time or any point in american history. think of that. you want to see that end quickly? you want to see georgia prosperity end quickly? vote for the democrat. she will end it quickly, she will end it quickly, she will double up your taxes. a lot of bad things will happen. we passed a massive tax cut for georgia families, and we will soon follow it up with another 10% tax cut for the middle class. we are working on that. [applause and cheers] here in georgia, the great news just keeps rolling in. jobs are going up. crime is going down. wages are rising, first time in many years. you saw that in the report on friday. poverty is plummeting. and confidence is at an all-time
high. [applause and cheers] other than that, we are not doing very well. >> [laughter] pres. trump: under republican leadership, georgia is safer, georgia is stronger, and georgia is winning like never before. [applause and cheers] and i will tell you what, i know brian. he will take it to new heights, heights that you would not believe. i know him. this guy does not stop which is what you want. [applause and cheers] he is an incredible manager. he has been successful all up -- all the way up and down the line. this man will bring it to heights that you would not believe even today with those great numbers. and to protect your rights and freedoms, we overcame the democrat smear campaign and confirmed the newest member of the united states supreme court, justice brett kavanaugh.
[applause and cheers] [crowd chanting] pres. trump: boy, did he get treated badly. the democrats treated him so badly, so unfair. and did you see what happened on friday? you know what i'm talking about, right? you knew that before. you knew that. these three women, they knew that before. they knew that a long time ago. so, a woman, who accused then judge kavanaugh of horrible, horrible crimes, admitted that actually she never met judge
kavanaugh or brett kavanaugh or kavanaugh period. never met him, never saw him, and the act never happened. and it was a lie. it was a total lie. she made up the story, and she was forced to admit it. >> [crowd chanting, "lock her up"] pres. trump: it was a false accusation. it was a false statement, and she was forced to admit it. can you imagine? this man for 10 years, i was -- who knew i was going to do this? i was happily building buildings in manhattan, having a good time a nice, simple life. , a nice, simple life. and then i said to my beautiful first lady -- [applause and cheers]
and i said, "what the hell, let us give it a shot." and look what happened. look what happened. and we are doing things for our country that have not been done in 100 years. what we are doing. we are turning it around. by the way when i came in backstage, this happens all the time, a very powerful strong guy was saying -- thank you very much. a very powerful guy, a big strong guy, with tears coming down on his face said, "thank you, mr. president, for saving our country." this happens all the time. this happens all the time. thank you. tears. tears. i said "when was the last time that you cried?" and he said, i don't know if i ever cried. even as a baby this guy didn't cry. but tears were coming down. we turned the country around. the country was going down.
[applause and cheers] but think in terms of justice kavanaugh. think if he did not get the appointment based on this woman's false accusations. think of it. think of it. just think of it. how horrible that was. i think this was number four. and by the way, what about the other ones? what about the other ones, folks? this was number four. you will see others now, but how about the other ones? but listen to this. so supposing this was the final straw, and the democrats, who were so bad, who worked so disrespectful, so horrible, right -- how about the leak? how about dianne feinstein with the leak? >> [booing] pres. trump: i don't know. i don't know about them. remember? remember when she went, i don't
know. did we leak? did we leak? john corner asked the question -- he asked it did you leak? ,"no let me check. , no, we did not leak. we did not leak." i always say that may be the worst body language i have ever seen in my life. she leaked. in other words, she leaked. but it was terrible the way he got treated. this woman comes forward and says it was a false story, false statements, she said i lied, and he could have lost a judgeship on a story that was made up and the way the democrats treated him and us -- you have got to get to the polls on tuesday and you have got to vote. [applause and cheers] the contrast in this election could not be more clear. republicans produce jobs.
democrats produce mobs. [applause and cheers] you have heard that. you have seen it. you have seen it. you have seen it. antifa. they take the helmet off, and they take the armbands, and you see these little arms. these little arms. and then they see the clubs and their hands. you know, they are tough guys, right? where are the bikers for trump? where are the police? where are the military? where are the ice? where are border patrol now? now we have taken a lot. ,we have taken a lot, folks. but, you see these guys, you take off their helmet their , black helmet and black outfit with the pads. tough guys. and they are swinging clubs viciously. they could not care less who they hit. these are bad people. these are people causing
problems, and the press does not want to talk about them. >> [booing] pres. trump: if the radical resistance, and that is what they are, radical resistance, takes power, they will move immediately to reverse america's progress and to eradicate all of the gains that we have made. the democrat party wants to raise your taxes, restore immediately job killing the gains that we have made. regulations. they want to take away and destroy your health care because that is what is going to happen. introduce socialism and totally erase america's borders. >> [booing] pres. trump: how about that caravan? do you want to just let that caravan pour in? i don't think so. >> [crowd cheering]
pres. trump: so we started the wall. $1.6 billion. another $1.6 billion just approved. we are building it in pieces and chunks, but i want to build it all at one time. in the meantime, you saw last week i called up the united states military. we are not playing games, folks. [applause and cheers] because you look at what is marching up, that is an invasion. that is not -- that is an invasion. a lot of things happening. you know ask yourself, how do , you think that formed? and did you see the second caravan? and we pay these countries, by the way, honduras, el salvador. we pay these countries hundreds of millions of dollars which by the way will be stopping very soon.
ok? they do not do a damn thing, they don't do a damn thing, for us. i called up -- i asked vice president mike pence to call up the head of honduras, to call up the heads of all -- he called them and said, listen we do not , want you to allow the formation of caravans in your country. we pay you hundreds of millions of dollars a year which is probably just stolen. and we don't want it. and you know what? oh, absolutely, we won't. in the meantime, nothing. they do nothing for us. democrats want to invite caravan after caravan of illegal aliens to pour into our country. these are the same caravans that have violently overrun mexican soldiers and police. you see all of this -- we are
not dealing with babies here. you know every time i say -- you , have some rough people in
there, the media says how dare , you. they gave you 300 names yesterday. these are rough, rough people in many cases. and if they are allowed to break through our borders, only larger and bigger, we have emboldened these
people. it is not going to happen, and by the way, you saw how good our military -- they got off those planes. i had so many calls, and i had so many people. and we look at those soldiers, and you saw the barbed wire going up. that barbed wire. yes, sir, we have barbed wire going up, because you know what? we are not letting these people invade our country. we want them to come in. we want them to come in, but they have to come in legally. they have to come in legally. [applause and cheers] and that is why i am sending a message today to the caravans,
to the criminals, to the human traffickers. do you believe, human trafficking? because of the internet is more prevalent today than it ever was in the history of our world. this is a worldwide, unbelievable problem. who would think we are talking about this? you think of that from 500 years ago. because of the internet, worse today than it has ever been. we are not letting in the smugglers. so, turn back now because you are not coming into the united states unless you go through the process. turn back. [applause and cheers] so if you want more caravans and you want more crime, vote democrat. it is very simple. >> [booing] pres. trump: if you want strong borders and safe communities, vote republican. [applause and cheers]
and by the way, i saw him backstage, i said i was going to bring him back to stage. i met him years ago. i know you really like him. he is a georgia legend who truly knows about winning. he led the georgia team to a national championship. coach vince dooley. vince, come up here, coach! [applause and cheers] coach dooley: president trump, thanks for coming to georgia and supporting brian kemp for governor.
[applause and cheers] brian grew up with our family. we have known them since they were 10, 15 years old. my wife's best friend is brian's mother. a football player my son played , side-by-side as the offensive guard and tackle. they each weighed about 180 pounds apiece. president trump, thanks for keeping your promises. thanks for all you have done. god bless america. and one other thing, i have talked to herschel. [applause and cheers] and herschel, brian, herschel supports brian, and you will be hearing from him and the next day or two. god bless. [applause and cheers]
pres. trump: thank you, coach. thank you, coach. and the coach is right about the great herschel walker. he has given me his support from day one, and i understand he just endorsed brian, and herschel, you could not stop herschel. remember that? i remember in his day at georgia, they wrote a ballad. the ballad to herschel walker. it was pretty easy to coach that team though, coach. what you did was you took the snap and handed it to herschel. 10 yards, 30 yards. and then everybody on the team went into the nfl. they said, well. but i tell you herschel walker , has been great, and he has been a tremendous friend to all of us. and you have a great team this year. but -- [applause and cheers]
but -- but having herschel, would not be bad. having herschel. thank you very much. we are very grateful to be joined also by a man who really has done a terrific job as your governor, nathan deal. nathan. [applause and cheers] thank you, nathan. thank you, nathan. [applause and cheers] nathan deal, thank you, nathan. and here with us today is a man we all know. he has been such a tremendous help to me in the united states senate. whenever there is something tough, everyone tends to go to david purdue because he gets it done. [applause and cheers]
thank you, david. thank you very much. thanks, david. what a great guy. and also, sonny perdue, where is sonny? where is sonny? where the hell is he? sonny, you did a great job. thank you. thank you. thank you sonny. , great job, sonny. are we going to get the money for those farmers in georgia, sonny? we may have to come up with some new rules, but we will get you there, right, sonny? we will get you there because you know, it is amazing. you know what is amazing? we give millions and millions of dollars to these foreign countries that do not give a damn about us, and we cannot get a couple of bucks to farmers that got wiped out by the hurricane. we are going to take care of our farmers in alabama, south carolina, north carolina. ok?
i just put a lot of pressure on sonny, but he can handle it. right? he can handle it, david, right? we are joined by many republican senators. i hear they are all doing very well. they don't even have to be introduced. i have heard before how well people are doing, and then you know, people say we don't , have to, they are doing so well and then bad things happen. go out and vote. congressman buddy carter. buddy, thank you. buddy, thank you, buddy. a terrific guy. all of them. these people helped us so much with tax cuts and regulation cuts. congressman drew ferguson. drew.-- drew, thanks, great job, drew. austin scott. [applause] thanks, austin.
he has got the "make farmers great again" hat. that is called make farmers great again. that is what we have done. with our new deals with canada, with south korea, mexico. remember, they said we would not get them done? we got them done, and they understood if we did not get them done, we would have to tariff all of the products. we got them done, and they were great. jodey heights. jodey. [applause and cheers] great job. thank you for all the help. thanks, jodey. barry leramilk. [applause and cheers] these are all guys, they are winning by so much. usually i have to tell like long stories about each one. but these guys, but you still want people to get out and vote. right, very? -- barry? rick allen. rick. thanks, rick. thanks, rick. and tom graves.
great people. thank you, tom. thank you. you have great people. if you do not want to be saying "speaker pelosi" for the next two years -- >> [applause and cheers] -- [booing] pres. trump: get out and vote. and i will tell you, you don't hear this too much about the blue wave anymore, do you notice? you know about a month or two , months ago i was hearing about , this horrendous blue wave that was going to sweep us all out and going to be terrible. i have not heard the term "blue wave," but you better get out and vote, otherwise i'm going to look very bad. this tuesday the people of georgia are going to head to the polls to choose your next governor. and i think most of you know how important that decision will be. [applause and cheers] brian kemp is an incredible fighter and a tireless champion for the people and for the
values of georgia. and he was with me right from the beginning. [applause] i read an article that said -- he was with trump from the moment he saw donald trump and melania come down the elevator. that was when he was with us. i like those people. he will keep your jobs and wages rising, which is what is happening. he will provide great schools and health care for your loved ones. and he will keep your family safe. so important. [applause and cheers] brian will always stand behind our military, and he has. he will stand behind our vets. more importantly, he loves our vets. he talks to me about the vets. he talks to me about the vets a lot. sometimes i say, brian, we have got to talk about another subject. please, brian.
we got veterans choice passed, by the way. he is always behind our police and law enforcement, and he will never let anything bad happen to our second amendment which believe me is under siege. [applause and cheers] our second amendment. our second amendment, if stacey abrams gets in, your second amendment is, is gone. gone. stacey and her friends will get rid of it. you would not mind someone comes knocking, please, can i have your guns turned over to government? taking your guns away? please, give all of your guns right now. brian's opponent, stacey abrams, is one of the most extreme, far left politicians in the entire country. you know that. >> [booing]
pres. trump: she wants to raise your income tax very substantially. she wants to raise your property tax very substantially. right through the roof. she supports a socialist takeover of health care which means you will never be able to see your doctor. just like the vets never got to see their doctor. and just like president obama, i'm going to be very nice, did not tell the truth when he said you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan. he said it 28 times. and it was not true. >> [booing] you put stacey in their, and you are going to have georgia turn into venezuela. i don't think the people of georgia like that. >> [booing] pres. trump:
and stacey abrams, and i spoke to law enforcement, i spoke to everybody, is really weak on crime. really weak on crime. that is not what you need. she wants to end the death penalty for even the most vicious and ruthless killers. stacey abrams voted against tougher penalties for violent criminals who assault our police officers. stacey abrams wants to turn your wonderful state into a giant sanctuary city for criminal aliens. putting innocent georgia families at the mercy of hardened criminals and predators. abrams voted in favor of allowing illegal aliens to receive public benefits. she even -- listen to this -- voted to let illegal aliens hold public office. isn't that wonderful?
and stacey abrams wants illegal aliens to vote. you know, that is one of the big deals. faye -- they like them coming in because we are winning. and they figure if enough of them come in, eventually they will be able to vote and they will vote for the democrats, right? we cannot let that happen. for other reasons too but we can't let that happen. she opposed requiring proof of american citizenship at the ballot box and she recently said she wants illegal aliens to be part of her blue wave. i think her blue wave is not going to happen. and she brought oprah here to help her. oprah was a friend of mine until i ran for office.
once i ran for office, we diverged slightly. i think the media will check this. look at all of those cameras. that is terrible. a lot of people said, it should be frightening every day having to speak to -- one little misstep, one little starter, one little accidentally saying a wrong word, it is a major headline. it is a major headline. one little -- one little, tiny -- a little bit of a mispronunciation of a word. it is front-page news all over the world. you know what? you know what? the bottom line is, don't to make any mistakes. >> [crowd chanting] pres. trump: but anyway, so chantingpres. trump: but anyway, so -- pres. trump: but anyway, so oprah, and oprah has been down to mar-a-lago and honestly before i ran for office we did very well and we had a good relationship.
i like oprah. oprah, when she ended her show had her five most important people -- the last week, remember? i was on her show in the last week. i think they are trying to burn the tape. but oprah was here to endorse stacey, and i am here to endorse brian. and you know what? i hope you will listen to my endorsement. stacey abrams will make your schools and neighborhoods unsafe and she will make your jobs disappear like magic. you know the magic wands that president obama said that you will never get your manufacturing jobs back, you will need a magic wand. well, we did. we did. [applause] pres. trump: but all of these
reasons and maybe the best reason of all, he is a great leader, a strong man, a strong personality which you need and he is someone that will be a great governor of georgia. brian kemp. please come. [applause] [cheering] brian kemp: oh wow! thank you so much. thank you, mr. president, we are so glad that you have georgia on your mind. i was just thinking backstage about my opponent -- she has had obama, hillary, elizabeth warren --
but we got trump, pence, so we got trump, pence, vince dooley, and herschel walker, the goal line stalker. mr. president, on behalf of hard-working georgians want to thank you for your response to hurricane michael. i was on the ground down there as you were and the vice president was and secretary perdue and i have never been more prouder to be a georgian to see the federal, state, and local response to our brothers and sisters in need.
thank you very much. as you know, my opponent does not think a whole lot about farmers and people that work in hospitality, but you sure do. we also want to thank you for the tax cuts. because of that -- because of that, with the leadership of governor deal, taxes were cut in georgia last year and with your help, i am going to do it again next year. we also appreciate you taking a chainsaw to government regulations at the federal level. [applause] because of that, we are having record unemployment, record job growth. and i want to thank you for your huge endorsement in the primary. it made a big difference, as you
remember. but -- but i want to thank you all for supporting -- i want to thank you all for supporting our president. and i want to thank our president for standing up and fighting for our country and fighting for hard-working georgians. >> [crowd chanting, "usa!"] brian kemp: but as you all know, many times the states are the laboratories of democracy and the president needs some help at the state level from time to time. so i want to encourage you all to get out and vote on tuesday. talk to your friends, your neighbors, and get the vote out. we will go to work as georgia
republicans like we have done for the last 16 years under governor sonny perdue's leadership and governor nathan deal's leadership. we will work hard with this president to continue to make america great again. thank you. >> [cheers and applause] pres. trump: beautiful. wow. [applause] pres. trump: but it is true, i generally have been working for getting great senators elected and working with david and everybody else. but we are going for the senators. we do whatever we can for the congressmen and congresswomen. but i have not done too much for governors. this is an important race for georgia.
i am here for brian because the governor of georgia means so much to our country. our country. so you have got to get out there. you have got to get out there. and this is a very worthwhile stop. in addition, i happen to like the people of georgia very much. it gives me a good excuse to say "hello." if democrats gain power on tuesday, one of their very first projects will be the socialist takeover of american health care. you know what that means? long waits, bad service, and a lot of problems. we will go over that because they possibly will come up with that hopefully in their campaign. the remaining left-leaning person. they will come up with that and you will see what happens. you will not be happy.
the democrat plan would obliterate medicare and medicaid -- and medicare advantage for more than 635,000 georgia seniors who depend on it. republicans will protect medicare for our great seniors who have earned it and by the way, people do not realize this, who have paid for it. thank you. and very importantly, republicans will always protect patients with pre-existing conditions. we are doing it. the democrats like to spread false rumors. they are the ones that will not be able to because there will be nothing left when your system is obliterated. the democrats plan to destroy healthcare also includes raiding medicare to fund benefits for illegal aliens they want to pour into our country. as we speak, democrats are openly encouraging millions of illegal aliens to break our
laws, violate our borders, and destroy our nation, essentially. because, you know what? without borders, we do not have a nation. the incredible thing is over the years we have been fighting so hard for other countries' borders. and we don't protect ours but we are protecting it now. even with the worst laws, they are the worst laws that have given us so little and the democrats don't want to change the laws that they want the chaos at the borders. they think it is good politically. i personally think it is backfiring on them and i think maybe they made a big mistake. illegal immigration costs our country far more then $100 billion every single year. that is more than double the entire state budget of georgia.
and in illegal immigration is also deeply unfair to american workers including african-american and hispanic american workers. you know that. african-american, asian american, hispanic american workers -- not fair. not only do the democrats' open border policies drain our treasury, but they endanger every american community. you see that -- you see what is going on. nearly 100% of the heroin in the united states enters through the southern border. along with roughly 90% of cocaine. the majority of meth. and a substantial portion of the ultra-lethal fentanyl killing our youth. these drugs have destroyed hundreds of thousands of lives last year. and killed last year alone, 70,000 americans.
and they do not want to toughen up the immigration laws. i think they are going to do very poorly at the ballot box, but i may be wrong. and they want to get rid of ice. elizabeth warren wants to get rid of -- i cannot call her pocahontas anymore because she has no indian blood. it is a problem. she has no indian blood. i have more than she has and i have none. and i said that a long time ago before she brilliantly sent out the test results. that was not a good test, elizabeth. that will be great leadership when dealing with north korea, china, russia and all of these countries you have to deal with. that was not good. is she still running for president, brian? she is pushing a guy up in ohio who will be a disaster for the state.
we want mike de -- dewine. she is pushing someone that will be worse than she is. last year alone, and ohio was just too smart. ohio, if you are listening, dewine will make a great governor. so important. governorships -- people don't realize how important governorships are. they can destroy your state or make your state great again. they can destroy it and quickly or make it even better. last year alone, our brave ice officers arrested 127,000 aliens with criminal records. think of that. [applause] including those charged or convicted of approximately
48,000 assaults, 12,000 sex crimes, and 1,800 murders. do you believe those numbers? and by the way -- ice. these are really tough people but they are great and they love our country. and they are going in to towns, and cities, and places and they are throwing ms-13 gang members the hell out of our country by the thousands. and no one here wants that job. it is tough but they like it and they do it great. and we're going to protect them. the democrats want to abolish ice. they want to release drug dealers. and ms-13 gang members -- remember when nancy pelosi got angry at me because she said i
did not speak well of ms-13 gang members? they cut them up. they go straight into your neighborhoods. we believe that any politician that puts criminal aliens before american citizens needs to be voted out of office very quickly or certainly not voted into office. republicans will always stand with the heroes of ice, the border patrol, and law enforcement. and you have great law enforcement in the state of georgia. that i can tell you. this election is about safety and it is about jobs. for years, you watched as we let foreign countries plunder our wealth, shutter our factories and decimate our industries. you were victims of it. many of you. but those days are over.
we have added nearly a half-million manufacturing jobs and that is going up to almost 600,000 very shortly. those were the jobs that -- won't happen anymore. they were the jobs that we would've needed a magic wand -- they will never be brought back. i will tell you what they are, they are among the best jobs any state or country could have. and they are pouring in. last month alone we added 32,000 manufacturing jobs. that is 1000 manufacturing jobs every single day. nobody thought that was possible. i recently announced that we are replacing the horrible nafta deal with an incredible brand new u.s.-mexico-canada agreement. the usmca is a giant victory for georgia farmers, manufacturers, and dairy producers.
they said it would not happen. it happened. we are opening them up. we have taken the toughest ever action to crack down on china's abusive trade practices and we are doing very well. that is something that could also happen. and if it doesn't happen, we will do very well too. after years of building other countries, we are finally rebuilding our country, thank you. because we are now putting america first. we have also taken bold action to reduce the price of prescription drugs. we will see them come down. you saw a month ago when the drug companies rose their prices vary substantially. and i said, get me the name of the head of novartis and pfizer and i made some calls. and they immediately said, we
were only kidding. and that is when i realized how powerful the presidency was. [applause] pres. trump: true. i thank pfizer and novartis and the others for doing that. you will see prices coming down. we are cutting out the middleman and middle woman. and you know what? i'm going to have a lot of people that hate me really badly, almost as bad as the left or the democrats, if that is possible. almost as bad as the democrats. but, you know what we will do? blame russia. we're going to blame russia. let's blame russia. after years of soaring obamacare
premiums, average premiums in georgia this year are coming down. we are bringing them down. and what did we do? we got rid of the mandatory mandate which was a disaster. we very much defanged it. we are running it properly and it is being, every week, more and more. we are doing a good job. you notice your premiums are not doing as badly as you ever thought. a lot better than you would ever have thought. we have defanged it. we had it repealed and replaced but we had one disappointing vote and we did not get one vote from a democrat. we did not get one vote from a democrat. that was a slightly disappointing vote but it does not matter because we are now doing it a little bit differently. we are doing it piecemeal and it is working just fine. we just introduced new, affordable health care plans for georgia. individual markets that only cost about half of the price of
obamacare and it is frankly better insurance. we passed veterans choice, giving our veterans the right to see a private doctor rather than waiting on line for 10 days, 20 days, three months. they see a doctor, they take care -- literally, i say this all the time -- people that were modestly ill, it takes them weeks and weeks to see a doctor, and by the time they get there, they are terminal. think of how horrible. now they go out, they see a doctor, they take care of themselves, we pay the bill, and that is good. that's for our veterans. not that it matters in this case because the only thing that matters is the vets, but it also happens to save us a lot of money, if you can believe it. they get rid of this big problem and saves us a lot of money. they are waiting on line,
sometimes three or four weeks. can you imagine you can't see your doctor for three or four weeks? and longer. we also passed the landmark v.a. accountability law to ensure that anyone and everyone who mistreats our veterans will be held accountable. the minimum we do is say, you're fired. that's the minimum. [cheers] pres. trump: we secured $716 billion, and last year $700 billion, to fully rebuild our great united states military. [cheers] pres. trump: and we gave our incredible warriors their largest pay raise in more than a decade. at my direction, the pentagon is now working to create the sixth branch of the american armed forces, the space force, which we need.
we need badly. i withdrew the united states from the horrible, one-sided iran nuclear deal. and iran has been a much different country. has iran been a different country for the last -- isn't that incredible? when i came in, it was just a question of how long it would take them to take over the middle east. they were going to look for the mediterranean. they are not looking anymore for the mediterranean. we have recognized the capital of israel and opened the american embassy in jerusalem. [cheers] pres. trump: we have made extraordinary progress in so many ways, and yet we are just getting started. but the democrats want to throw america in reverse and drag us backward to the failures and
betrayals of the past. and that is what they were. you look at what has happened to our country over the last long period of time. we are going and we are going in the wrong direction. now when i have meetings with foreign leaders, with kings and queens and princes, and we meet on occasion with a president and prime minister, every one of them comes into the oval office, practically, and they say, before anything else, i want to congratulate you on the incredible job you have done with the economy of the united states. [cheers] pres. trump: and we are ahead of schedule. but i need you to vote for a republican governor and a republican congress. and we have to get all of those votes. this is the greatest political movement in the history of our country, and we are all part of it.
it is not me. we are together. this is the greatest political movement in the history of our country, maybe ever. there has never been anything like this. but we have to keep going, because the changes we have been making are incredible. >> [chanting] pres. trump: what we have done in a short period of time -- we are way ahead of schedule, as you know, but it is really getting better and better, and we are learning our way around washington like you wouldn't believe. it can be a nasty place. but the things we have done, the things we have done -- and everybody says it, including the democrats when they're are not on television or not talking to a mic, they cannot believe what we have done and they want to stop it as fast as possible, and we are not going to let that
happen. with your support, we will keep on cutting your taxes, reducing your regulations, and raising up your incomes, which have already gone up a lot over the last two years. we will protect medicare and we will protect your social security, just like i have been saying during the debates, right? i talked about your social security and everybody said, we are going to change. well, i was the one that said we are not, and guess what, there haven't been any changes. we will defend your right to free speech, religious liberty, and we will continue to confirm judges who will interpret the constitution of the united states as written. [cheers] pres. trump: two judges.
how about justice neil gorsuch? and justice kavanaugh? two great people, two great intellects, great scholars. these are the people we need on our supreme court. we will fully secure the borders -- thank you, i love you, too. [cheers] pres. trump: that was a guy, wasn't it? yeah. i love you anyway. thank you. we will pass kate's law, stop sanctuary cities, stop catch and release, end the ridiculous visa lottery, end chain migration, and we will keep the criminals, drug dealers, and terrorists the hell out of our country. [cheers]
pres. trump: we will lift millions of our citizens from welfare to work, dependence to independence, and poverty to prosperity. for years, you watched as your leaders apologized for america. they apologized. i saw it, you saw it. now you have a president who is standing up for america. [cheers] pres. trump: we are standing up for your values, we are standing up for georgia, and we are proudly standing up for our national anthem. [cheers] pres. trump: i am asking every citizen from every party, every background --
crowd: usa, usa, usa! pres. trump: it sounded too good, i had to let them go forward. i don't think we could have stopped them anyway, do you? good job. thank you, fellas. i am asking every citizen from every party, every background, and every race, color, and creed to reject the democrat politics and the policies of anger and division and to reclaim our proud and righteous destiny as americans. i need you to get your families, to get your friends, get your neighbors, get your coworkers, and go out and vote republican.
we are going to do it. this tuesday, i need the people of georgia to send a message to crying chuck schumer, nancy pelosi, and the legendary maxine waters and all of the radical democrats, by electing brian kemp as your next governor. loyal citizens like you helped build this country, and together we are taking back our country, returning power to you, the american people. we stand on the shoulders of brave americans who crossed the oceans, tamed the wilderness, secured our independence, won
two world wars, and planted our great flag on the face of the moon. american patriots defeated fascism, vanquished communism, delivered millions into freedom, and built the greatest country and most powerful military in the history of our world. [cheers] pres. trump: these courageous americans did not shed their blood, sweat, and tears so that we could sit at home while others try to erase their legacy, tear down our industry, and destroy our proud american heritage. we didn't do it. from the farm fields of georgia to the big sky of montana, from
the deserts of nevada to the everglades of florida, from the coal mines of west virginia to the steel mills of indiana, and in every city and town across our land, we are going to work, we are going to fight, and we are going to win, win, win. [cheers] pres. trump: we will not bend. we will not break. we will never give in. we will never give up. we will never back down. we will never surrender. and we will always fight on to victory, victory, victory.
because we are americans and our hearts bleed red, white, and blue. [cheers] pres. trump: we are one people, one family, and one glorious nation under god. [cheers] pres. trump: and georgia, together we will make america wealthy again. we will make america strong again. we will make america safe again. and we will make america great again. thank you, georgia. thank you. >> ♪ [applause]
