Thank you very much. I see these beautiful teleprompters, believe me, I'm not using them. You know, I said if you run for president, you should not be allowed to use teleprompters, get these things out of here. [Applause] I was watching Hilary of making a speech and I was outside and they were dead, dark, big, they weren't even like this, these are clears, I can almost see right through them. But with... Truly is disturbing. Is that disturbing to the audience, wouldn't you think? What her's.. Because it was outside, we're black and they were twice the size. I said, what kind of his speech is that? That's not a speech. Most importantly, I brought my Bible, [Applause] okay? And you know, its First Presbyterian Church, Jamaica, and this was written by my mother with my name, with my -- it was a long time ago with my name, with my address, with everything, in case I lost, if somebody would return it, you know, in the old days, if you lost something, they returned it, today a little bit less so, But I saw this and I said I have to bring it and just show it because it brings back so many memories. It's really an honor to be here. And you know, David is a fantastic guy, he's done an amazing job and we had some big news today with Boehner [Applause] and you know I've been saying for a long time, and I was just telling actually David, who said by the way I'm not a politician and I'm not politically correct, and I think that's a great thing, I just am so tired. I'm so tired of the political -- I love this guy over here. Thank you. I'm so tired of the time and the effort of all of this, we don't have time, we have a country that's in such danger and such trouble to be politically correct. Every word is measured and I can do it. I went to great schools. I went to an Ivy League school, so easy to do it, but who wants to do it? We have to get to business. I mean, we have to just get back to business, but we're going to have a very interesting period of time, and maybe it starts today because of Speaker Boehner, you know, some people like him on a personal basis. Do people like him on a personal basis? Anybody? You know, we want to see -- we want to see the job being done properly. We want to see, we want people that are going to get it done and I don't understand, they get elected, they're full of vim and vigor they're gonna change things, they're gonna get rid of Obamacare, they're gonna do all of these things. They come down to these magnificent vaulted ceilings that you see all over Washington and what happens, they become different people. [Audience Member calls out] They become different people, they come out and they don't do it. And I will say, you know for the groups that want to take the -- what they say is a harsh tone. I wrote The Art of the Deal, and I will tell you The Art of the Deal, if they would have read it, some of -- and I'm talking about the Republicans, we know where the Democrats are coming from, but we are so disappointed in the Republican establishment because If they stuck together, in all fairness, you have a certain group of 10%, 12% of Republic -- that are out there fighting, fighting. But when the other side, which is Obama and the Democrats, when they hear that they're not going to win and they have no support, there's no way, from The Art of the Deal, there's no way that they can possibly win. That the Republicans can win. So they're out there, they're left hanging so many different times if they actually were unified if they were brought together and unified and you said, four very important things that you're going to take very, very strong harsh measures, you're gonna win. [Audience Member calls out] Because nobody's gonna -- In 50 years from now and 100 years from now, in two years from now and even next month, nobody's going to be talking about this speaker, nobody's going to be talking about any of the report... They're gonna be saying, let's say something very important. The government shut down they're blaming the president folks, they're blaming the president and you know it's sort of interesting when you hear the Democrats, they have they're very, very good, very, very good. They go, oh, we want the government to shut down, we want it to shut down. That would be so great if it shut down, it would be so wonderful if it shut down. And the Republicans said, oh, they wanted to shut down, oh, that would be bad, we're playing right into their hands. These people are babies. Do you remember when they said they want to impeach? Do you remember? No, their babies, their babies. [Applause] Do you remember when they said they wanted to impeach [Inaudible], wanted to impeach Obama, right? Remember? And then the Democrats said, no, no, we want him to be impeached. We want him to be impeached, please impeach him. It would be so good for him. It will make him look so good and he'll get all of this points out. It'll be wonderful. Do you really think they want him to be impeached? [Audience Member calls out] So the Republicans come back. I was just telling the folks backstage, the Republicans come back, oh, we don't want to do that because he wants to be -- who wants to be impeached? Oh, it's so sad. I mean, you know like you have this clown Marco Rubio, I've been so nice to him, I've been so nice, I've been so nice and then, no, but he's in favor of immigration and he has been -- he has been -- it was the gang of eight and you remember the gang of eight, it was terrible and then he went down in the polls and you have to stay, you know what if you believe in something you have to be true to yourself. You have to be -- you have to be, but it was the gang of eight and it was really, really you talk about weak on immigration, nobody weaker and all of a sudden he goes down to the polls and all of a sudden he starts changing his tone. But you never really change your tone, you remember them. And also when you're elected senator, you have to go and vote, it's so important. You can't say, I can't vote. And he's got the worst record, and he hit me and I said, why is he doing that? And sometimes the Republicans do it more than anybody because they want to sort of catch on, they want to get into the publicity cycle and all you're doing is hurting yourselves. I mean, it's a bad thing, all you're doing is hurting yourself. So now we have so many people that can be and should be attacked. We have a president that is extremely bad for everything that the folks in this room stand for. [Applause] I mean, extremely bad [Applause], you know, freedom of religion so important. We just don't see it, you know, you take a look at a thing like the Iran deal. We took freedom of religion, look at the Iran deal. How long is this whole thing gonna last when we have incompetent people. Grossly incompetent people, negotiating these vital deals like that deal we're 24 days and all you, I don't have to go over all of the many problems with the deal, even Israel, Israel is in such trouble with this deal, and you know, in that deal probably, it says and nobody even understands what it says, which is a problem. But probably if Israel ever attacked Iran we're supposed to come to their defense. Do we know that? Nobody's able to tell us what is going on with respect to that. If Israel has to, because, at some point, something might happen, the deal is horrible, the deal is horrible from any standpoint and we have to do something. And I can say it's got to have to be renegotiated. You know, I've made a living off buying bad -- I love bad deals because you buy them cheap. Do you understand that? you buy 'em cheap? I love horrible contracts. I love buying. I bought them from friends of mine. I buy a horrible, horrible contract, the poor guys dying with it, he's getting killed, I buy it cheap, I then go and fight like hell and make it a great contract. Sometimes you chapter it's something, you do lots of different things, whatever you have to do, and you make it a great contract. That contract, that agreement has to be changed. We have no choice because if it is it you're, gonna have nuclear proliferation, it's already happening, you're gonna have potentially the destruction of Israel. It has to be changed. One of the things in that contract, that I cannot believe, we're giving them $150 billion, billion. Right. [Applause] Now we're giving them $150 billion, of which they're going to use, and already using, they've already -- they're ordering missiles from Russia. They're doing things that probably and definitely we can't allow them to do, but they're doing it. We cannot allow the incompetence that we've have going on in this country, we just can't. We have to use our greatest negotiators, we have to use our smartest people. We use political hacks, they're all political hacks, they're negotiating deals that they should have no right doing it. Take a look at another thing, one thing. And look, nuclear's so important, but you have four prisoners. One of them is over there because he's a Christian, he's over in jail because he's a Christian. Now, at the beginning of the negotiation, by the way, used to be free at the beginning, now it's four. But you say very simply before you start, fellas, we went -- by the way, I have to say to the women it's all fellas over there, they haven't figured out that women are smarter than men, they haven't figured this out. [Applause]They're little a little detailed they'll figure. It'll take another 150 years, but they'll figure it. You say, fellas, you got to give us backup our prisoners, you got to do it, [Applause] you got to do it. No, you got to do it. [Applause] you gotta give us back our prisoners. Now, they went to Carrie who was, you know, broke his leg. This guy's in a bicycle race, you believe he's in a bicycle race, he's got the hat, he's got the emblem, big -- I thought I said what's he doing, he was actually in a race. It wasn't just like let's get a little exercise. Breaks his leg, this is our negotiator, all right. So he's it, he walks in, he walks in with crutches. They say what the hell is with this guy, is he crazy? We have to, very simply, as an example, that example, you walk in at the beginning, not the end, not the end.You say, fellas, before we say, you have four prisoners, you don't want them, we do. Would send a great signal to the American people, it'll make a deal much easier. You'll make a better deal, it'll make it much easier. You got to give us back. If they say no, you take a walk because you know you're not gonna get anything. You take a walk, you take a walk, and I guarantee you, I guarantee you, as sure as you're sitting there that within a short period of time they call back, you have your prisoners, you have them. But here's the worst it is it even -- and you need the right messenger, if I'm the messenger, you get those prisoners back. I tell you why, I'll tell you why I'll make the statement. If I get elected president before I ever get to the office, I guarantee you they will be back, I guarantee, 100%, hundred that's 100%, but you need the right messenger and in the case of the prisoners, they never even asked. Can you believe it? They said both Obama and Carrie, said we didn't want to complicate the negotiations. No, no. I mean this was really a statement we don't want to complicate. So it's time I'm a businessman, I made a tremendous amount of money, tremendous and it's ridiculous. I mean, I don't even believe it myself, you want to know the truth. I don't even believe it I'm self-funding. I don't want to have the lobbyists and the special interests put money into my campaign I'm turning down, by the way, I'm turning down millions of dollars, I've turned down millions and millions of dollars. I actually feel foolish because it's so anti-me it's. So like it's, not me, but I turned down millions and millions and yet, you know, I was in Iowa two weeks ago, and I had a great audience. We had a... We've had just such great people and great crowds. And I said to the people, do you mind if I take millions of dollars, I promise you, I won't do anything for the people giving me the money, do you mind? And they all stood up and they said, no, no, no, it was really important. I didn't know it was going to be that important anyway. I think self-funding is great I'm the only one that self-funding everyone else. Believe me, whether it's Bush, who by the way along with Rubio, but whether it's Bush or anybody in favor of Common Core. I mean, think of it. Now you talk from a Christian standpoint, you want local school representation, you want local [Applause] Common Core is a disaster, but you need people that really are tough and smart. You look at another thing, trade that's what I'm gonna do. So good. I always say, I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created, that I tell you, that I tell you. You know, people say, and actually, CNN did a poll and I come out so high on that, on the economy and front -- by the way, like much, much higher, not even close. I come out the highest by far on that and leadership, I come out high on leadership and I come out high on really other categories. Did I say, if I'm so high in all these categories, why do we even have to have an election, right? Why? Why? But a woman stood up because I didn't do so well. You know, the one thing I was a little weak on people were not sure. I was a nice person and I am -- I am -- I am I'm a giving person. I believe in God, I believe in the Bible, I'm a Christian, I -- you know I have a lot of reasons. I love, I love people, but the woman stood up. She said, Mr. Trump, I'm a big fan of yours, I'm gonna vote for you, but I don't know if you're nice enough to get elected. I said, I really think I'm a nice person, but let me tell you something. I really think this is going to be an election based on competence. [Audience Member calls out] We need now competence and we have to have something we need help. We owe China $1.5 trillion. Think of it. They suck our money out, they take our jobs, they do everything and we owe them money. How does that work? Not so good? No, we owe them supposed to be the other way around, right. Japan, we owe them the exact same amount, $1.5 trillion. They sell us cars, biggest boats you've ever seen coming into the harbors. You've never seen boats, I've never seen ships like this they're loaded, loaded with cars. So they send millions of cars over here. We sell them beef, beef, they don't want it, half the time they send it back, they want to send back. The farmers over there, don't want it. So we take it back, that's not good beef by the time you get it back. I said the other day, no, no, I say its age now, they call it Kobe beef and we sell it for more money, you know it's one of them. But -- but you look at the imbalance, the US trade, I mean, look at look at the US trade. China, almost $400 billion a year, We lose Japan $75 billion a year. Mexico, they all say the fence, first of all, we're gonna build a wall and it's gonna be a real wall, okay. If people like it or not, we're gonna build a wall and it's gonna have a big beautiful door and people are gonna come into the country. But they're gonna come in legally, they're gonna come into the country later. And when people graduate, number one in their class from Harvard and Yale, we don't send them out and they want to stay in the country. You know, there was a case the other day I read about where somebody great student at a great school couldn't stay, from India, couldn't stay in the country no matter what and they forced him out and he founded a company a few years ago in India, 5,000 Employees, one of the most successful companies, an unbelievable job we could've had him here, and we forced them out. Silicon Valley needs people, we all need people, but we force these incredible people that have been in our system for years. We force them out, they graduate, boom, get out. So we've got to be smart. We've got to be tough. We can't allow our veterans to be treated the way they're treated, they're treated horribly, they're treated horribly and our military, if I win we're gonna make our military so big, it's so strong, so powerful, nobody will ever mess with us, folks. We are really in serious trouble. You have, [Applause] you have Putin the other day not so long ago saying, you know they better be careful, we have nuclear missiles, I've never heard that, you know, coming from Russia. But you have North Korea, you have so many other places. I brought up recently, you know, during the debate, anybody watch the debate by any chance? How did I do, how did I do, right? I won every single poll and yet these media people, Oh, Donald come to... I won every -- I won Drudge. I love Drudge, I loved it. But I won Drudge, I won Time Maga... I won every single poll. Slate. Places I never even heard of. I won every poll. Then I turn on the television, and even I think the Fox poll had me at second, and they wouldn't say it, they wouldn't tell, they wouldn't say I was at second. Other poles. They said I did great. Then I'm listening to some of the pundits, I won't use their name because actually some of them are getting better. You know, as I get higher and higher, we're doing great. In fact, with evangelicals in Iowa just came out I'm number one at 29, substantially ahead of anyone else. I'm happy about that. [Applause] You know why? That's the reason [Applause] but we have to be careful as Christians. The progressives are pushing, the progressives are pushing to an extent that if we're not careful, we're gonna have some big problems and even bigger than we have right now. Look, we need people that can support us. We need people that are strong and smart and can back us the word Christmas. I love Christmas, I love Christmas, you go to stores now you don't see the word Christmas, it says Happy Holidays, all over. I say where's Christmas. I tell my wife don't go to those stores. I want to see Christmas. No, I want to see Christmas and you know, other people can have their holidays, nobody, but Christmas is Christmas. I want to see Merry Christmas. Remember the expression Merry Christ, you don't see it anymore. You're gonna see it If I get elected, I can tell you right now, I can tell you right now. So, I just want to thank you for the -- it's been an amazing group of people you've been amazing and to have such a fantastic room. But I just want to thank everybody, you know, I got into this and everyone said there's no way he'll ever do it. He's got this wonderful company's got it. I do. I have a wonderful life, but I see what's happening. I see what's happening with the country. I see so many things going wrong, so many things that it caused really by incompetence that can be straightened out. We can straighten it out fairly quickly. I will tell you if we don't stop it now, however, it's gonna be at some point that's going to be too late you're not going to be able to turn you're not going to be able to turn it. But I got in and they said, you know, he'll never do it, I did it. They all said, oh, he did it. Then they'll say, he'll never file like, Form-A, which is basically a single page were you signing your life away. I signed it, I signed Form-A, they said, oh, I don't believe it. Then they said, he'll never put in his financials because maybe he's not as big financially as everybody thinks. I put in my fina -- almost $100 pages like the biggest ever filed by far by far [Applause] and I had it ahead of -- but you know they said, oh, he'll ask for all the extensions and he had some of the politicians asking for extensions and they were one page, I put it in ahead of schedule and it turned out the company was much bigger than anybody thought, much stronger it's an amazing company, right? So they said what this guy might be running. Then I go with the polls, and the polls go up. Just like evangelicals in Iowa, the polls I start, bing bing, bing, bing. And every single two or three weeks when the polls come out, they said well, now he's reached his cap, I started at six, it went to nine, it went to 12, it was like a rocket ship, right you've seen it. I mean, I'm not telling you anything and -- and it went to 20 and I went to 22 then went and then the other day in a FOX poll, it went up two, and I'm killing everybody and they say other people are surging. Trump is staying still, but I'm up, I went up, I didn't say still I went up two points, right? I think two points and I had another one where I'm 33, 33 and the next one I think was like 12 or 15 and they don't want to report it. They don't put the poll out. I said, why aren't you putting the poll out? Well, we don't like that poll, it's a great poll, it's a great poll [Applause] and they wouldn't put it out. So you know, I get angry at these things cuz you know what I like. I like fairness, somebody said, do you have thin skin? I don't. If I'm wrong about something, I don't mind. The media can do whatever they want, but I have thin skin when I'm right about something when I know they're doing a number on all of us because when I ran, and the reason I ran is because I want to make this country great again and we're going to do it. We're going to do it and we're gonna do it a lot faster and a lot better than anybody thinks is possible. And I just want to thank everybody. You're special people. I love you all and this is the key. Thank you all. Thank you very much.
