6:06 pm
asian-americans and hispanic-americans. everybody was thriving like never before. >> [cheers and applause]. >> there was never a time like this. we turned the page on decade of sellouts and one sided trade deals. lifted millions out of poverty and built the greatest economy in the history of the world. when the virus hit our shores, i took decisive action and saved lives and the u.s. economy. by october of the same year, america was roaring back with the number 1 fastest economic recovery ever recorded. how about that? >> [cheers and applause]. >> all of the in coming administration and all they had to do was just sit back and watch. inflation was nonexistent. our southern border was by far the strongest ever.
6:07 pm
because of the border was so tight, drugs were coming into our country at the lowest level in many, many years. after decades of rising energy costs, the united states had finally attained the impossible dream of american energy independence can soon would have turned into energy dominance. >> [cheers and applause]. >> for the first time in memory, china was reeling and back on its holes. -- heels. you had never seen that before. the united states was outdoing them on every front and china was paying billion dollars in taxes and tariffs. the farmers know that because they got 28 billion dollars of it. no president every sought or received one dollar if our country from china until they came along. and we were getting hundreds of billion dollars. many people think that because
6:08 pm
of this, china played an active role in the 2020 election. just saying. i am sure that didn't happen. instead of jobs and factories leaving america for china, they were for the first time ever leaving china for america. >> [cheers and applause]. >> businesses were roaring back because of our historic tax and regulation cuts. the biggest in history. bigger than what ronald reagan produced and he produced a lot. china, russia, iran and north korea were in check. they respected the united states. honestly they respected me. i knew them well. >> [cheers and applause]. >> i knew them well. >> [cheers and applause]. >> the vicious isis caliphate
6:09 pm
was decimated by me and our great warriors in less than three weeks and its founder was hunted down and killed. north korea had not launched a single long range missile since my summit with chairman kim jong-un 3 years before. we developed a relationship. that's a good thing. not a bad thing. it's a good thing. very good thing actually. look at what is happening today. my opponents made me out to be a warmonger. and just a terrible person who would immediately go into war. they said during the 2016 campaign if he becomes president, there will be a war within weeks and wars like you
6:10 pm
have never seen before. it will happen immediately. yet i have gone decades without a war. the first president to do it for that long of a period. >> [cheers and applause]. >> the world was at peace. america was prospering and our country was on track for an amazing future because i made big promises to the american pe people. unlike other presidents i kept my promises. >> [cheers and applause]. >> [crowd noise]. trump, trump, trump, trump! >> thank you very much. under our leadership, we were
6:11 pm
a great and glorious nation. something you have not heard for quite a long period of time. we were a strong nation. importantly we were a free nation. now we are a nation in decline. we are a failing nation. for millions of americans the past 2 years under joe biden have been a time of pain, hardship, anxiety and despair. as we speak inflation is the highest in over 50 years. gas prices have reached the highest levels in history and expect them to go much higher now that the national reserves which i filled up were drained to keep gasoline prices lower just prior to the election. joe biden has surrendered our energy independence. there is no longer even a thought of dominance. we are now begging for energy help from foreign nations, many
6:12 pm
of whom find us detestable. our southern border has been erased and our country is being invaded by millions of unknown people. many of whom entering for a bad and sinister reason. you know what that reason is. we will be paying a big price for this invasion into our country for years to come. hundreds of thousands of pounds of deadly drugs including very lethal fentanyl are flooding across the now open and porous southern border. the blood soaked streets of once great cities are cesspools of violent crimes. which are being watched all over the world. this is what america and democracy is all. how sad. the united states has been embarrassed, humiliated and weakeneded for all to see. the disasters in afghanistan,
6:13 pm
perhaps the most embarrassing home court in the history of our country. we lost lives. left americans behind and surrendered 85 billion dollars worth of the finest military equipment anywhere in the world. and ukraine, which would have never happened if i were your president. >> [cheers and applause]. >> and even the democrats admit that. that's something i have seen them admit over and over again. our enemies are speaking of us with scorn and laughter and derition because of those 2 events. there are many more. even just today a missile was sent in probably by russia to
6:14 pm
poland. 50 miles into poland. people are going absolutely wild and crazy. they are not happy. they are very, very angry. now we have a president who falls asleep at global conferences. >> [laughing]. >> was held in contempt by the pressure parliament over afghanistan. thanks to the words of wisdom, he said thank you to the wrong country for inviting him to a major summit on the environment of all things. fly for days to get there and he calls the country a name that was actually a country on another continent. >> [laughing]. >> he is leading us to the brink of nuclear war. a concept unimaginable 2 short years ago.
6:15 pm
you can't mention the nuclear word. it's too devastating. the green new deal and the environment is all that is talked about and yet nuclear weapons which would destroy the world immediately are never discussed as a major threat. can you imagine? they say the ocean will rise 1/8th of an inch over the next 300 years, but don't worry about nuclear weapons that can take out entire countries with one shot. something is wrong with their thinking under biden and the radical democrats america has been mocked, derided and brought to its knees perhaps like never before. we are here tonight to declare it doesn't have to be this way. it doesn't have to be this way. >> [cheers and applause]. >> two years ago we were a great
6:16 pm
nation. soon, we will be a great nation again. >> [cheers and applause]. >> the decline of america is forced upon us by biden and the radical left. when begin the choice i believe the american people will overwhelming reject the left's platform of national ruin and embrace our platform of national greatness and glory to america. glory. >> [cheers and applause]. >> one week ago our citizens voted in the important mid-terms elections. despite a long and unnecessary period of waiting, far longer than any third world country,
6:17 pm
just a short time ago the republicans won back control of the house of representatives. >> [cheers and applause]. >> it was with a great trump endorsed candidate congressman-elect kevin kiley. a fantastic person. i am happy it was his vote that did it. we won back -- this happened just an hour ago. much criticism is being placed on the fact that the republican party should have done better. frankly, much of this blame is correct. but the citizens of our country haven't realized the full gravity of the pain our nation is going through and the total effect of the suffering is just starting to take hold. they don't quite feel it yet. but they will very soon.
6:18 pm
i have no doubt that by 2024, it will sadly be much worse. they will see more clearly what happened and what is happening to our country and the voting will be much different. 2024. >> [cheers and applause]. >> are you getting ready? >> [cheers and applause]. >> i am too. i am too! i do want to point out that in the mid-terms my endorsements success rate was 232 wins and only 22 losses. you don't hear that from the media. this is an elegant night at an elegant place. i am not going to use the term
6:19 pm
fake news media. >> [laughing]. >> we will keep it very elegant. you don't hear that from the media. i think you will because people are starting to see what happened. that's some score. in the primaries 98.6% but they were still trying to blame me. the reason for the success and that unprecedented success rate the trump administration changed our nation on trade, on securing the border, the strongest and safest border and on islamic terrorism. we had no islamic attacks, terrorists during the trump administration. in fact, we got along very well with the various countries. including coming up with the
6:20 pm
abraham accords. >> [cheers and applause]. >> it's because of cutting taxes and cutting regulations at the highest level ever and on building the greatest economy. any time in the history of the world from has never been an economy like we had just two years ago. despite the outcome in the senate we can't loose hope. we must all work very hard for a gentleman and a great person named herschel walker. a fabulous human being who loves our country and will be a great united states senate. get out and vote for herschel walker. he was an incredible athlete. he will be an even better senator. vote for herschel walker. we elected a group of america first leaders who will be stars of our party for many years to
6:21 pm
come. and the popular vote not discussed for the house, republicans won 5 million more votes, the largest margin in many, many years over the democrats. 5 million more votes. that's a big thing. breaking the radical democrat's grip on congress was crucial. in other words, because of our great congressman and all of our great congress women, we have taken over congress. nancy pelosi has been fired. isn't that nice? >> [cheers and applause]. >> i told them, if you just keep a little bit lower standard you will have a big victory. they said let's win by 40 seats or 50. if you win by 2 seats be happy. she is on her way to another
6:22 pm
country. she's been fired. we always have known this was not the end. it was only the beginning of our fight to rescue the american dream. it's 2 words you don't use. i don't want to be joe. american dream. that was not good what he did -- a lot of bad things like going to idaho and saying welcome to the state of florida, i really love it. in order to make america great and glorious i am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the united states. >> [cheers and applause]. >> [cheering].
6:23 pm
>> thank you. all of you. >> [cheers and applause]. >> so many incredible family and friends here tonight. it's a beautiful thing. people say how do you speak before so many people? when there is love in the room, it's easy. >> [cheers and applause]. >> you ought to try it sometime. together we will be taking on the most corrupt forces and entrenched interests imaginable. our country is in a horrible state. we for grave trouble. this is not a task for a politician or a traditional candidate. this is a task for a great movement with the courage, confidence and spirit of the american people. this is a huchlt. -- movement. this is not for any one individual. this for tens of millions of
6:24 pm
people across the country black-and-white and hispanic and asian. many of whom we have brought together for the first time. when you look at the numbers and what happened with hispanic and african-american and asian, this is a party that has become much bigger and much stronger. much more powerful. can do much more good for our country. this is a job for grandmothers and construction workers and firefighters and doctors and farmers who can't stay quiet any longer. you can't stay quiet any longer. you are angry. our country is being destroyed before your very eyes. it's a job for every young person and hard working parent and every entrepreneur and every under-appreciated police
6:25 pm
officer. the police are being treated so badly. these are great people that can straighten out crime. they know how to do it. we have to give them back their respect and their dignity. >> [cheers and applause]. >> this will not be my campaign. this will be our campaign all together. >> [cheers and applause]. >> because the only force strong enough to defeat the massive corruption we are up against is you, the american people. that's true. the american people. the greatest people on earth? >> we love them all. we love both sides. we will bring people together. we will unify people. it was happening in the previous administration, two of the previous. what brought them together was success. prior to covid coming in, the people were calling me, that were calling me, you would not believe it. people so far left i figured
6:26 pm
they would never speak to me and i would never speak to them. but our success was so incredible. like never before and then covid came in from china. we call it the china virus. some people call it other things, but it was devastating. we built it back and did an incredible job. when people say republicans or democrats or liberals or conservatives, i say we can all get together. we were doing that. that was happening just prior. the success was greater than had country has ever had. we were leapfrogging china and everybody else and everybody wanted a piece of it. just as i promised in 2016, i am your voice. >> [cheers and applause]. >> i am your voice. >> [cheers and applause]. >> the washington establishment
6:27 pm
wants to silence us. we will not let them do that. what we have built together over the past 6 years is the greatest movement in history. it's not about politics. it's about our love for this great country america. we won't let it fail. i am running because i believe the world has not yet seen the true glory of what this nation can be. we have not reached that pinnacle. believe it or not. we can go very far. first we have to get out of this tich. -- ditch. once you are out you will see things that nobody imagined for any country. it's called the united states of america. it's an incredible place. >> [cheers and applause]. >> we are americans. we do not have to endure what has taken place in washington, d.c. this is our country.
6:28 pm
our government. the corridors of power, they are ours. they are not theirs. we are coming to take those corridors back. >> [cheers and applause]. >> from now until election day in 2024, which will come quickly. look at how time flies. i will fight like no one has ever fought before. we will defeat the radical left democrats that are trying to destroy our country from within. likewise protect us all. we want to protect us. we have to be protected from all of those nations that are looking to destroy us from beyond our shores. there are a lot of nations that hate us gravely and that's the problem. when they look at us in disarray
6:29 pm
right now. we go to them begging for oil and we have more liquid gold under our feet than they have or any other nation has and we don't use it because we are going to them. it's crazy what is happening. we can't let it condition. joe biden is the face of left wing failure and washington corruption. he had a big g20 dinner. everybody flew over. he never showed up. they are still looking for him. what is going on. g20 i used to love the leaders. i made deals for our country like you would not believe. give me the next one. we got them to stop taking advantage of our country. every nation took advantage of our country. we renegotiated deals with mexico and canada and usmca. we got rid of the worst trade deal ever made nafta and that's why the farmers loved trump.
6:30 pm
we restructed our terrible deal with japan. i did it with the prime minister. a great man. we made it a terrific deal. with south korea and so many other countries. the best of all was with china. we made an incredible deal. after covid i don't talk about it because the devastation that caused the entire world is too much to bear. i will ensure that joe biden does not receive 4 more years. >> [cheers and applause]. >> our country could not take that. i say that not in laughter. i say that in tears. our country could not take 4 more years. it can only take so much. it's all fragile to start off
6:31 pm
with. it can only take so much. in 2020 i received the largest number of votes of any sitting president in history by a lot. we will do it again. but with even more votes this time. many have noted the huge gains we made with latino voters. i believe we will set greater records with this crucial vote in eighty-four. -- 2024. the hispanic voter, the latino voter unbelievable. great people and they want security. i built the wall and they thought that would hurt me with the hispanic vote. no, it helped me. they understood. they wanted safety and security. they understood the border better than anybody else. we started that trend and we are continuing with that trend. what we have done in florida and what everybody is doing in florida and texas.
6:32 pm
along the border in texas. i won every single community. the governor of texas called. a great gentleman. just got reelected. he said i would like to talk to you for a second. you have done something that nobody else has done. you won every single area along the border, the longest since reconstruction. i said reconstruction. you call that the civil war? that's what i call it. governor abbott a very good man and working hard. but it's horrible. they are just sending hundreds of thousands of people right through his state and right through arizona and right through all of the states. they are coming up in all of the states. we can't have it anymore. this campaign will be about issues, vision and success. we won't stop. we won't quit until we achieve the highest goals and made our country greater than ever
6:33 pm
before. we can do that. >> [cheers and applause]. >> our victory will built on big ideas and bold ambitions and daring dreams for america's future. it's not enough to complain or oppose. we don't want to be critics. we don't want to be complainers. i never wanted to be a critic. i never respected critics. they tell people what zoning but they can't do it themselves. we will win because we will fight with every measure of our strength and with every ounce of our energy to lift up the working men and women of america and restore the respect of this nation. our approach is the opposite of the radical left. based on freedom, values, individual responsibility and just plain common sense. it's common sense. >> [cheers and applause].
6:34 pm
in 2 years the biden administration destroyed the economy. we will build the greatest economy ever. it will take place quickly. i did it twice. i did it before covid and then handed off something where the stock market was higher than justice -- just prior to covid coming in. this time we will do it bigger, stronger, better than than anybody can even imagine. >> [cheers and applause]. >> one of the beautiful things of the pause, the important
6:35 pm
factors of the pause is that we see how bad they have done. so we will be able to do it properly and it will be much easier. everybody will agree with us. because everybody sees what a bad job has been done during this 2 year period. it will be a 4 year period. everyone sees that. it will be easier for us to do what has to be done. >> [cheers and applause]. >> we will immediately tackle inflation and bring down to a level that it was -- we were at zero. the best number is 1%. do you know that? we were at zero. we got it to 1%. the perfect number. one thing every economist agrees.
6:36 pm
we had it at 1% for a long period of time. we had the value of the there. this country could make a lot of money. i fought other countries where they devalued their currency. i would fight like cats and dogs with the leaders of the other countries. they were stealing from us. they had artificial devaluation of their currency. i have not heard it mentioned in 2 years. it's hard to compete when they do that artificially. they had to pay a big pride whether they did it. i said we won't do business with you anymore. i can't imagine saying lets put
6:37 pm
america last. we will again put america first. >> [cheers and applause]. >> every policy. thank you very much. we do love our country. that's why we are here. i didn't need this. i have a very nice easy life. this is something. i didn't need it. a lot of you people don't need it either, but we love our country. we have to take care of our country and save our country. every policy must be good year to that which supports the american workers, the american family and businesses both large and small and allows our country to compete with other nations on a level playing field which we never had until i came along. the trump administration came
6:38 pm
along. now we are losing. they are moving back into china and these other countries. it's horrible. that means low taxes. low regulations and fair trade. much of which i have already completed. now will greatly enhance. other countries should pay for the privilege of come into american marketplace. they have to pay to come into our country and make money and take it away frus. thanks to the trump administration the biggest and best country in the world is what we have. china was going to take over from us as the largest country in the world in 2018 or 2019. i don't like that timing. i talked to president xi.
6:39 pm
he is now president for life. i called him king. he said i am not the king. you are president for life. that's the same thing. i said you can't do this thing. china was going to take over the world economy by 25. they took it down. it will probably come back in the near future. i found it very insulting. we will end joe biden's war on american energy. >> [cheers and applause]. >> you will see when that happens energy costs come down and because energy is so big and so important, youingly see inflation dropping and dropping. you will see it come down. it's a thing of beauty. will se inflation dropping and dropping. you will see it come down. it's a thing of beauty. what is complicated is this
6:40 pm
energy disaster. we were a $1.87 a gallon for gasoline. now it's 5, 6, 7 or $8. the new green deal which is destroying our country and many crippling regulation it spawned will be immediately terminated so our country can again breathe and grow and thrive like it should. >> [cheers and applause]. >> it's very, very much hurting our country. germany tried it. for about a year. do you remember angela merkel? >> president trump in mar-a-lago announcing his 2024 presidential run. we will get back to the speech in just a minute. quick snap reaction from pete
6:41 pm
watching with us. he went through the failure with the biden administration and how this country changed in the last 2 years. i got an early copy of the text just now. i am looking at it. we will go back in a minute with his important close. your thoughts so far? >> well, sean, nothing like the original. he went back to the themes that put him in the white house from fair trade to borders to ending foreign wars and saying we the people have been ignored by washington, d.c. it's a forward looking speech that recognizes the disaster of the last 2 years. he said as president, i delivered for you where other presidents have not. this looks likes trump in as good of form as you have ever seen him. sticking to the issues that matter to his voters and making
6:42 pm
the case to the republican primary voters he is the guy to be the standard bearer. there will be others who leveraged their association with trump to get where they are. if he stays on message the way he does tonight, he has a formidable case to make to the republicans electorate. >> governor huckabee, we declare it doesn't have to be this way. america's come back starts right now. i kept my promises. we are a nation in decline. americans are suffering pain, hardship, anxiety and despair. america has now become mocked, derided and brought to its knees. could you have imagined all of this happening in 2 short years?
6:43 pm
i could not. >> sean, the construct of the speech is pitch perfect. if he keeps on like this tonight he is unbeatable in 2024. nobody can touch him. not a republican. not a democrat. he stayed on message. one key thing: this is not my am campaign. this is our campaign. he reminded the american people the reason they voted for him once and twice is because he was fighting for us. he said this is not about critics and complainers. he is looking forward. this was a brilliant speech. the best in a long time. if he stays on this message, i agree with pete, he keeps it between the ditches and this focus, he is unbeatable. >> sean: i think you might be able to make the case, pete, he
6:44 pm
talked about inflation and secured borders and his defeat of the caliphate and energy independence and how peace through strength worked and how he kept his promises. then he compared it to higher gas prices and record high inflation. surrendering energy independence and our southern border invasion and the fentanyl and opioid and the failure in afghanistan and in ukraine. many people over the years, pete, said the policies are perfect. does he have to fight that much? send out these tweets? i am sure you have gotten the same questions too. if you were lied about for 3 years about russia you might be defensive also. >> he had to fight to get on the
6:45 pm
debate stage on the republican side. to be the nominee. then he was lied about. he had to be a fighter. he is the preeminent fighter for america first for our generation. no question about it. once he got there. he delivered on what any american first supporter wanted. he said he would do it. across the board he was committed. took the slings and arrows. they are coming out tonight. the headlines are pre-i have been. he took the arrows and delivered. if he reminds voters of that, stays disciplined and makes it about us and about we the people. they are coming after you. i am just standing in the way.
6:46 pm
people will reminded of how good their life was because of the policies of donald trump. and pull the lever for him. it won't be easy to beat this guy. i agree with governor huckabee. he is at the top of the his games having had the results and making the case. you could ride a wave. the original is a flavor in itself. you are seeing that tonight from donald trump. >> sean: let me bring in congressman jim jordan and monica crowley. jim, looking at this donald trump. a very serious and very powerful speech. this is donald trump. it's game time for him. >> yes, you're absolutely right. pete and the governor had it right. this is our campaign. that's the key line. sean, i think of the great coaches. their athletes know that coach
6:47 pm
puts their athletes interest first. that's what president trump has done for the american people. you have been to these huge rallies. and president trump has a great line. the left comes after me because i am fighting for you. his audience knows that and his supporters know that. there is a bond and relationship that forms. that first line america's come back starts today. that's what this is about. that's why so many people are atted to this guy and how he fights for this country. they know he puts their interests first and their family's interests first and america's interests first. that matters especially now with what we have seen from joe biden and the left. >> congratulations jim jordan you are going to be investigating a lot of things that have gone under the radar for the last number of years. monic is crowley. your thoughts before we got back
6:48 pm
to the president. >> isn't it remarkable, sean and jim, on the same night president trump announces for president the republicans secure the majority in the house of representatives. president trump took a severe pounding over the last 7 years. i have never seen anything like it. it's a miracle the man is still standing. he has taken a pounding over the last week or so after the mid-terms. this man always put the forgotten man and woman first. when he said that line about this is not my campaign, this is our campaign all together. it reminded back in 2016 when clinton had a slogan that said i am with her. trump said i am with you. that kind of fighting spirit for the american people and it's not just a campaign programs anymore. -- promise anymore. he has a long track record of delivering for the forgotten man
6:49 pm
and women. he turned the page on 2020. this was a forward looking address based on policy and principles and hope for delivering america out of this historic catastrophe known as the biden presidency. >> sean: joe concha and leo terrell. i don't think there is a bigger fan in the country of donald trump than you. i am watching this president at this hour. i am seeing a guy that looks like he is dead on focussed that this is real. >> sean, on your program 2 years ago i came out and told you. first time i voted for a republican. he cares about the american people and the american people resonates towards trump. the ability to draw in the crowd. they trust him. he has a record to run on.
6:50 pm
