Well, this is turned out to be very successful and I really appreciate you all coming out. Those are two very special people that were with today. We just spent a lot of time backstage with them and you have been great friends. But before I really introduce them and you've already heard them and you've been hearing them for a number of months, they've in one case we have already a great congressman and in the other case, we're going to have a great Congressman. Those are terrific Mark and Ted. They're going to be very representative of your views because the Democrats aren't you know, I wrote a few little things down and if you look and you don't have to look down the you just all you have to do is say very simply open borders. They want to abolish ice. They don't mind crime they want higher taxes. They want to knock out your Medicare because they want to go socialist and somehow I don't see North Carolina as being the next Venezuela do we I don't care but you know, we have a couple of friends here and I want to just say Virginia Foxx. Where's Virginia? She's so great. Where's Virginia? These are incredible pride, Virginia. Thank you, Virginia. Representative Richard Hudson. Where is he? Hi, Richard great job and you really doing a great job, but we appreciate it's called tax cut tax cut richer the man with the greatest name in all of politics Patrick McHenry and he's been fantastic at a real leader in a real friend to another real friend a very very special person strong tough and credible leader happens to come from The area if you don't mind driving about three hours right? But they drove down about a three-hour drive and he's an amazing guy Mark Meadows and representative Joe Wilson. Where's Joe? Is Joe here and his son has been incredible. Hi, Joe and his son by the way, his son is really outdoing you Joe. That's okay though, right? We don't mind good Fathers like that bad father's they're not so happy about that. Right, but I know that we have a lot of other Representatives here a lot of other friends, but we need help in Congress. We can have all the ideas we want but we have some really bad people bad people that are running for office bad people for a lot of reasons, but primarily because they're doing a tremendous Injustice to our I don't know if they really believe this stuff a lot of it's hard to believe that they believe because you say how do you believe in open borders where the entire world population can pour into our country? I mean, we have a beauty running in as an example in California watched it last night running for governor. We have a great guy in John Cox. I think he's going to do well he did a lot of surprises gave him a big endorsement. He went up like a rocket ship and he's fairly close. You don't California not supposed to win as a republican. I don't quite understand that for Statewide, but we have John Cox, he's doing fantastically, but the man who was favored, I guess probably still favorite, but he said he wants healthcare for everyone. He wants everything for everyone. He wants to open up the borders. He wants to take care of everybody and I was just saying what happens if the whole world decides to go to California, that means they're going to take care of the whole world, right I guess. What do you stop you're going to take care of a lot of people but they're not going to be able to do it very long because it's not going to work. So I just want to thank the two people that really were here for today. Where is the lot of money and you folks are the ones that did it Ted Budd and Mark Harris really great. You know Mark is really big on tax cuts really big on You Second Amendment. Both of them are unbelievable when it comes to protecting and taking care of our military and our great vets. You know, we did a lot for the Vets choice. We got choice approved 46 years. They tried to get Joyce approved. They couldn't do it and we got it done. That means the vet goes in he has to it, you know, some of them wait on line for two days five days 20 days 30 days 50 days some of them. Ever get to see a doctor now. They go out. They see a doctor we pay for it and you want to know something. We actually number one most importantly we take care of our great vets. But number two we saved money. It's much less expensive and they're so happy for 46 years have been trying to get it through talk to get things through but I'm good at getting things through and Mark Meadows help Mark Meadows help and Patrick help. They all helped everyone that I mentioned really helped Virginia and we got it through and then we have so many other things that we got through and I wrote down a list of elements that frankly people wouldn't believe and a lot of it has to do with trade where we're doing very well. We had a very serious violation today because I gave an interview to Bloomberg yesterday and I said off the record something About Canada nothing bad fortunately, that would have been but the kind of a comment you'd make off the Record and it says off the Record and I gave a statement it actually said and he gave it out and it's a big story today. But here's the good news at least Canada knows where I stand because we can't have these countries taken advantage of the United States anymore. It's very simple and we're not going to let that happen and you know, a man named Dan D'Amico. I've been working with this guy for like 20 years. Haven't seen him much. Where does everyone know him? Yeah, where's Dennis? I didn't have too much. I saw him a little while ago. She had a guy that's been working in the sing like a 25 years. He's been working on more than any other single voice other than maybe mine because I've been talking about it too. I was in the private sector, but I know when we're getting ripped off I said China is ripping us. Of Japan's ripping us off Mexico's rubbing herself. Canada's ripping us off. The whole world is ripping us off. There's nobody that's not ripping us off fact. I thought I found a country very small located in South America and I said, you know, I think we made actually a better deal with I cut it turned out I was wrong it was because I was going to talk to the president because he what's wrong with you. You're the only one but turned out they made a very good deal too. Now. The whole world is ripping us off last year. We had $817 billion trade deficit. Did you know that Mr. Meadows? 817 -- not million, but billion a year. 817. Anyway, Dan would be this voice. It was like a voice in the wilderness and I looked at him today. I said, but you failed he said no, I didn't you got elected president and look what you've done. He's right. He didn't fail. It took us a little longer than we thought right because you know some things just so simple you'd say, how could it be possible that people don't see it like a country tariffs us then we tariff them and Congress comes down and they say why are you terrifying I say because they're doing it to us they say but that's not free trade. I said, of course, it's free trade. What's wrong with you? See? I don't go out free trade. I caught fair trade or I call it non stupid trade, but I want to have Dan he made a couple of statements just for a second. He really has he's a big steel guy very like as big as you get and he was just fighting a battle when he was the head of new core right new core and now new core spending billions of dollars opening up new plants because six months ago I said, we're going to put a tariff of 25% at all the steel that's dumped in this guy. They were dumping it. They were killing our steel companies there were very few left. Very few plants open they were just killing us and it was a very sad thing for me to watch and you know, what's going to happen by the way, and I don't know if Dan agrees with me, but what happens is they kill you still companies and then they start selling you're still at much higher prices, you know, it's like a Monopoly Deal but also we need steel for defense. It's not like a regular industry if we ever had a war and I don't think we're going to have an arc military's becoming so strong seven hundred billion dollars and 716 billion next year and the stronger we get the less likely it is that we have a problem. Okay. That's the one thing I've learned. I learned that you know what I learned that in grammar school. I learned that I learned that a long time you learned that as a little boy playing baseball in the yard the stronger you are the less likely it is that you're going to have a problem, but I'd like to have Dan just say a few words about maybe what he's been through. Quickly really quickly what he's been through and where we are now because the hottest industry there's right now is the steel industry and it was dead as a doornail. We were not going to have a steel industry in a couple of years from now had we not done what we did so did come up and say a couple of words, please. Thank you president briefed. I heard the word brief number one. If you don't think the steel prices we go through the roof after they destroyed the steel industry. Look what China is doing to the world that they loan money to and all the countries and now they're in they're dead and they're getting killed. All right not but the main reason I came here today other than to support. Our two folks running for congress was to tell president Trump. Thank you as the chairman emeritus and former chairman CEO of new core as the chairman of the Coalition for prosperous America. Over 27,000 teammates and new core We Touch 4.6 million households at the Coalition of prosperous America. I'm here today to tell him on their behalf. Thank you for living up to your election Promises to the American people. Thank you Jay. It's so great to see where's you know, one of Dan's competitors us steel. I guess that was the biggest company in the world 50 or 60 years ago. And now it was you know, it was very hurt very badly hurt and they're really back and they announce their opening up seven or eight new plants. They're going to do a lot more than that new cores opening up plants all over the place in many cases their brand-new their spending 500 million 750 million all over the place. It's an incredible thing to see I Sdn, one question. If I didn't do what I'm doing would you have opened up and be opening up new plants? He said absolutely not. He said absolutely not we wouldn't be opening up and it would be closing things and would be closing probably the rest of it, but that's what was happened. And we have a hot steel industry. That's a great industry. We needed so badly but I wrote down a few of the we don't have enough time because you know, we will I don't know if this isn't is this live television? I can't believe it even every speech see any time. You see the red light on that means your life and there's red lights but I wrote down just a few things and and it's these are each each Little Dot is a thing that we've already done and we have page after page as two additional Pages here. That's right, and it will take a long time to read them all but just a few almost 4 million jobs created since the election think of it. I remember this remember this for Ted and for all of for all of these people including the ones that aren't here for any reason other than their supporting Mark and Ted the Democrats are going to raise your taxes. They can increase job-killing regulations. I think of Dan were up here now, I'm not bringing them back up. But if you were if I asked you about which was more important the tax cuts of the regulation cuts, that would be pretty close. Right? Some people say regulations, but both is better and they're going to shut down your energy the crime is going to be rampant because when they open up the borders the crime is going to be a disaster. They're going to raid your Medicare to pay for socialism. It's big statement. They're going to raid your Medicare. They're going to take your Medicare that's going to pay for socialism. And if you look at Venezuela, that's a good example of Current day socialism they going to abolish ice so they can open borders and abolish ice these ice people. These are great people that brave. They're tough. You know, I know a lot of people have this room and pretty tough guys, but you don't want to fight ice you don't you know, let's see you don't you might you'll get your ass kicked, but you'll be in there those couple of guys might at least for a little while then you say I want Ice Wizard ice these are tough people and they're good people and we didn't have them we would have problems because you have towns all over the country where people came in through the Obama Administration. They call it MS-13 and many other gangs, but MS-13 is the worst. They're like evil you saw the speech last night. I talked about him so I won't go into it, but they're evil, they like knives better than guns because it's a much more painful death. And then when I said, they're animals Nancy Pelosi went crazy. She said how dare he talks about human beings that way. I mean, can you believe this? So you have to be very politically correct? Right that we have to be very nice. We have to I agree. I agree Maxine Waters is very nice. We want to be just like Maxine. She's a fine woman. She's a father but we need protection. I love our law enforcement, right we need for just running down this way, you know Ted and Mark that didn't give me a light up here. Okay, everything's perfect. There's only one thing missing. It's like Doc I can't even see my hand, but that's okay because you have to sometimes X improvised right? Let's see. I'm using those lights to read this but we I put down all of these things just yesterday. I had it made up for million jobs created since the election that's unheard of nobody thought that was possible more Americans are now employed that at any time in our recorded history think of it more Americans today more Americans are working today than ever before in the history of our country. In other words. We have more jobs a lot and we've created almost 500,000 to it's going to be six hundred thousand manufacturing jobs. Now the previous administration and even during the campaign President Obama would go around and they talk about manufacturing is like an old obsolete business. I said, well you're going to make things. I mean Dan would say, what are we going to do here? So steel was like an obsolete business. Maybe that's why they said we don't need any steal anymore. I don't know, but they said You're factoring is absolutely they're actually the best jobs. You can have you make things it's work. It's the fit the best shots did the best job, you know about economic growth. There was four point one but two days ago, they raise it to 4.2. Nobody thought that was unemployment claims are at an almost 50-year low think of that I think of that, you know, what another words unemployment claims that's tremendous amount of money going out 50-year low median household income has hit the highest level ever recorded so that the median household income. These are good is a good statistics Meadows, right? How do you lose an election with these statistics? Everyone said the midterms. I've maybe there's going to be a red where they talk about this blue. If they're not talking about the Blue Wave anymore. At least we got the word wave, you know Blue Wave. I think it's unfair with this whole redistricting thing. They're doing in North Carolina how unfair is that will put that in Mark Meadows hands. Okay more God blame you hey, Mark, you're now blamed on television, right? No, it's very unfair. You have it election and a little more than 60 days and they change the district on you and you've already won primers. How does that work the court system? Okay. How does that work? You've all gone through primers or most of you have it's been district for many years. And now you have to redraw lines have a new District even though you want a primary in another District. I don't know that had there has to be something going on there. So I know you guys are working on that Mark African-American unemployment has recently achieved the lowest rate ever recorded Hispanic American unemployment the lowest rate ever recorded Asia Asia. Do we have any Asian Americans in the room, please raise your hand. Are you working? Yes. Yes, we're good. Were you going to be very you're going to like me? We have one Asian American unemployment recently achieved the lowest level. Did I do a good job for you? She said thank you women's unemployment reached the lowest rate in only 65 years. Sorry. Sorry weapon. I didn't quite get that but 65 years after day there was a time when if I said the best in 65 years you'd say good job. Now when I say 65 years, it's like not nearly as good as ever, but I'll tell you what women's unemployment will very shortly be a historic number. Also the lowest unemployment rate ever recorded for Americans without a high school diploma. That's a pig. We're setting I think so importantly prisoners. They come out of prison can never get a job now. They getting jobs we have programs that were working on very good. But I guess maybe the greatest program is our economy is so strong and employers are hiring prisoners when they might not have done it three years ago two years ago five years ago ten years ago and I'll tell you what, I know one in particular. That's so thrilled cannot believe it how good it's working now and you know, a lot of times they come out they can't get a job and they end up in prison because they can't get a job. What are they going to do now? They're getting jobs and they're getting jobs at record numbers the veterans unemployment recently reached the lowest rate in 20 years veterans and that's going to be very historical. So 3.9 million Americans have been lifted off food stamps. This is just an a short period of time. We're training almost 5 million Americans to work in other places. We're doing it through great corporations Walmart FedEx. So many great companies are now spending a tremendous amount on teaching people because they're doing better than us. I mean, what are we going to do open schools all over the place which we do but there's nothing like the big companies retail sales surged last month and it's one of the highest years. It's really doing well up 6% 6% That's it, you know talking about that's a lot. We signed the biggest package of tax cuts and tax reforms in history. We got rid of that horrible individual mandate in Obamacare. We've decimated Obamacare and you know to me very important. We really had Obamacare defeated, but unfortunately, you could really say anybody that didn't vote is really the deciding vote. We didn't get any Democratic votes. None of the Democrats voted and what we've done is we've decimated it. But if you look we got rid of the individual mandate that was where you had the privilege of spending a lot of money for the privilege of not spending money on bad Health Care think of that what that means nobody's ever heard of a thing like that you spend money so you don't have to spend money, but we got rid of it. It's gone and I'll tell you what for small business owners. What a blessing that is. We just got the Winter Olympics and we just got the World Cup. Okay. He's alike by the way. These are like small things. We opened up anwr and Alaska and I approve the Keystone XL pipeline and the Dakota access pipeline 48 thousand jobs, and that was done immediately upon right after the inauguration. I signed them and I got the approvals. Substitute pipelines better environmentally than Trucking it and using trains better. We've recorded the largest number of Regulation Cuts in the history of our country. No Administration has ever cut even though I'm here just short of two years. I've got more regulations than any president in our country. We did something that's interesting because I to me, it was very important right to try. This is a program where if a person is terminally ill if they had money their travel to other continents and travel to other places. They would desperate they wanted hope and they travel all over they wanted hope and what would happen is they just couldn't find anything. We have great great pipeline, but it takes a long time used to take 12. 14 years. I've upped it very substantial. We have tremendous people over there FDA. We have tremendous people and what we're doing now with right to try is incredible you sign a document and you try and in many cases it's going to work and it's hope it's hope it's really something special to me. That was very important and it's not as easy as you think Mark Meadows and all of these people work so hard to get this done because I mean the insurance companies had problems we got taken care of the states had problems the government had probably liability problems. You give them something and they Sue Has it what's the purpose of not doing it? Well, sir, we don't want to get sued. Okay, that makes sense. But think of it in some cases they didn't want to give it because they didn't want to hurt the patient but these are terminally ill patients. I said, they'll sign a waiver and they send everybody signs a waiver now but a lot of people are using it right to try it's such a great thing. Just one of the many things We've done but it's so important but the big thing is we're building our military stronger than ever before all of these things are happening. We're taking care of our we're putting great judges on the course. We got judge Cavanaugh, hopefully in great shape. He's a great judge great conservative. Wonderful person. Just as Gorsuch is doing a fantastic job on the Supreme Court. We withdrew from the horrible Paris climate of it sounds so pretty is gonna cost us a fortune and it was going to put us at a tremendous disadvantage and we have cleaner air now than anybody I want clean air. I want Crystal Clean Water we can do that. We don't have to pay trillions of dollars to other places we could do it and No, I did that. I said boy. I'm going to get just absolutely slaughtered of this one. Guess what people understand it. You know China doesn't kick in like till twenty Thirty and Russia kicked in at a I think it was in 94 and 95 when are was not nearly as good so they had a different standard. We kicked it immediately and we can't change it. They said well, you can change it you have flexibility. But if we do that all the environmental groups are going to sue us worth China. They're not gonna Sue China have a feeling. I have a feeling they're environmental groups in China will not be showing president XI. It's a little different system. What do you think? Do you think Mark? Huh? We'll have Greenpeace will have all these guys in other words. They say you could say yeah, but every time you change it will get this massive lawsuits. I won't let you change we would have had actually closed down many businesses in order to qualify by 2025. Did you hear about that? You know, we would have to close down businesses. Otherwise we Of qualified and we just can't if we did seriously and this is called practically we will be sued and so we got out of that one. We move the US Embassy to Jerusalem. Every president practically for many many decades has promised that we're going to move and I Now understand it. We will move our Embassy to Jerusalem on your take a look at Obama take a look at Busch take a look at every one of them Clinton. We will move I mean with such security and then they said when he was over the embassy what what what the president mr. President. When are you moving the embassy to Jerusalem next question, please and I understand it actually because you know what happened when the word came out that we were getting close to doing it. I was called by Every country I was called by countries. I never even heard of before I was called by everybody. Please don't move. Please. Don't please don't please don't let's go by very powerful countries. Very big countries. Very good countries great friends. Great allies some not such great allies, but they are nevertheless. I was caught by everybody and I Now understand why nobody did it because Clinton wasn't Bush wasn't Obama was they were also they campaigned on it, but when it came time, nobody had the guts to pull the trigger. So right thing to do, so I was going to do it like on a Monday and I was getting these calls Dan knows this little trick. I was getting these calls and we must speak to the president about your Aslam. We must speak to him. Please please kings queens presidents Prime Ministers, perhaps a couple of dictators. I must speak to the president about Jerusalem. So what I did I was going to do it on Monday. This is like a Thursday. I said tell him I'll call him back sometime next week. So I signed it up on Monday. Then I started returning the calls. Yeah. What can I do? Well, sir, it's a little late. You just approve them. Oh, I didn't know what do I know? I did not sir. I'm sorry, but I understand why I do understand why now that in down so we have a lot of things we have a lot of great things were going to be doing Beyond. This crime is a big big thing with us. We've already started building the wall and I can tell you these people are helping us with what we need the wall. We have that 1.6 million an hour another 1.6. We needed faster. I could build that thing so fast, but we're trying, you know, the Democrats are obstructionist are trying to hold back for border security, but it's not going to work, but we have to get Mark and we have to get Ted we have to go to all these because these are incredible people you have in North Carolina. I want to thank also, you know, we had a tremendous Victory crooked Hillary spent a lot of money in this state. She spent a tremendous amount of money. In fact, they had to thank North Carolina will be the Fire Stop North I said, I don't know. Why do you say that because Laura helped me so much here help that she was born. He was incredible. She was working and by the way, Deb, where are you? How about, you know women for Trump right women to jump Mock's great wife marks great when women for Trump at all times a good times bad times as women for Trump and I appreciate it. You were Incredible without you and Laura and all the been a lot of the people in so we could and we had a big victory we did it wasn't like But they spent the Democrats spent a lot of money in this state and honestly, they didn't come close and we're doing better now that we were doing them because now we fulfilled you know, this is a much easier campaign because when I first started right I say we will cut your taxes. Okay. Nobody believed it. We will do this. We will do that. We'll all these things that we've done we will cut regulations Nobody Does anybody believe we're going to cut the most in the history of our country and I did it in much less than two years more than anybody else done in you know in eight years in a 16 year term. Okay. He didn't quite make it to the 16th, but it was a 16 year term cut more regulations than any other president. So all of these things that we've done what we've done for coal what we've done for steel what we've done for industry. I never thought I knew we were going to do well because So the potential but I never thought were going to be at 4.2 this quickly but we're going to go higher. I think we're going to go a lot on when we fix the trade deals when we take care of our country the way it has to be taken care of when we stop letting outside countries and other countries many of whom aren't even allies of ours rip us off and actually and it's all stopping. You know, you see what's happening. You see what's going on right now when we make great trade deals. We have a tremendous away to go and that all goes down to GDP it all goes down. We protect these really rich countries. We get paid practically nothing our military. We're protecting countries as you could I ask you a question just countries loaded the very rich there were trillions of dollars. Why are we paying for the military? Why are they reimbursing us the cost? And all you have to do is ask because for the most part many of them would even be there if it wasn't for us. So we're asking and we getting very good results. You'll see a I mean a lot of things are happening. We're doing great. It's very important that you help Market. I ask you please and Ted just to come up here for a second These Guys these sugars and I know him both these two guys are special people and they going to do it. They're going to get in there going to help us make America great again. They're going to help us to keep America great, which is our new with an exclamation. They're going to help us to keep America great and it's just really important that you get out there and you make sure that on November 8, right November 8 6 same thing that that's right that you go. No, but how did I like November 8th, they'll only be one November. I was only going to be one You get out there in November you get out there November 6 and you got to get everyone out to vote. I'm going to ask you just each to say just a couple of things to your friends and your supporters, but you two guys are special and we have to get them down in DC. So Mark, why don't you start off? Well, let me just say once again what a privilege it is to have President Trump here, and... and how thankful we are for all of you who have sacrificed to be here today. And Mr. President, thank you for bringing your message of hope and thank you for bringing your message to encourage us. We need a Trumponian turnout on November 6th of 2018, and we're going to deliver in North Carolina. So I just want to thank everybody, and I want to especially thank my family. I have my girls here, my parents here. I have a brother here, and I know how important family is. We saw that just a few minutes ago when Laura introduce the President, and you could just see the glory of a family, and how much he loves his family and how much they loved him. And when I'm around the President, you can just tell how much this man loves our country, and you can tell it. You can see it in the results. And so we're going to deliver results this coming November 6th, and we look forward to the victory, and we look forward to seeing you again, and we want to thank you all for helping us get there.
