[applause] mary: she stood with so many workers including fast food workers, airport workers and
i want to thank mary for introducing me but more than that i want to thank her for being a strong voice on behalf of working women and especially women who have the protection of a union to make sure they are treated right. and, i am always happy to be anywhere with cecile richards. a fierce,en at effective fighter for all of us. women and men. because i will tell you, when the opposition organizes to go reallyne of us, they are going after all of us. they have gone after it to undermine the american labor
movement. they have gone after planned parenthood and the work it has done. and at the very basic constitutional rights granted to v. wade to roe. decisionmost personal about health care choices. and i cannot thank enough my courageanother woman of , former congresswoman gabby furred for being here. gifford for being here. gabby."ting "
mrs. clinton: she and her wonderful husband, mark kelly, have been on a mission. a mission to bring about common sense gun safety reform. and to gather we are going to accomplish that mission. finally, i want to thank him to really salute my friend and senate tour from new york, , who hasgillibrand taken on some very difficult all ofin the senate for us. for all of us, but particularly for women. she has been on the front lines
day after day making change. andknows you do not get up make his speech and have everything change. she knows you have got to work every single hour of every single day. like me, she is a progressive who likes to get things done for the people she represents. now, it is very exciting to be with all of you on the evening of the new york primary. i am so great all for the chance i had to represent this state for eight years. took aple of new york chance on me in 2000. you sent me to the senate. we worked together. of 9/11 with the horror
together. we worked together on inner-city areas and upstate rural areas honor ofs the greatest my life to represent you in the senate and i want you to know new york had my back and i always tried to have your back and i will again if i am fortunate enough to be elected your president. [applause] crowd chanting "hillary" on. clinton: i am focused the issues that really matter to everybody. important --ght be
more important than others but if you look at them they are interlocking. they're looking at whether or not we're going to produce positive results in people's lives. whether or not we're going to defend the rights we already have against a concerted assault on every one of them. they are about to whether we will be united as a country or continue to be divided by those who gain from that division. so let me just spend a couple minutes talking about how connect did this all is. talk about women's issues but i want you to understand how i see them and am to making the case that when we take a right from someone, when we eroded, it impossible to
exercise then we heard everybody. not just those directly affect it. think with me about the kind of america we want to create together. imagine a tomorrow where we have enough good jobs with great incomes. a raise. gets everybody who works hard gets rewarded. ?ow does that happen it happens by making sure the government is playing a role in in creating those jobs advanced manufacturing. renewable energy. small businesses that we will grow and create more jobs from. this is not a pipe dream, my friends. this is doable. we just have to make up our minds we will have an election about it. it is easy to diagnose the problems facing america. -- we need solutions
that we work together on. throughout this campaign i have been laying out the plans for how we're going to do this. what we will achieve together. i know some people will have commented. i can pay attention. on very little sleep. but nevertheless, i do. some people have commented, enough with the plans, hillary. we do not what your name or plans. just go out and make speeches. do not talk to loudly. but do not talk to softly. well, look i want you to know that for me this election is not just about me. it is about in agenda that we
present to new york tomorrow. that we present to the country. that we vote on. is that will give us a chance to actually make the progress we all want to see. and what i am focused on is breaking down the barriers that stand in the way of people getting ahead and staying ahead. of course there are economic their, that has to be one of our priorities. creating those jobs. raising the income. raising the minimum wage at the national level. it absolutely has to be at the top of our list but you know, not the barriers are only ones that americans are facing today. take the issue of equal pay for equal work. if it were just an economic barrier we would not still be talking about it.
but it is more than that. when you actually look and compare why women are still not being paid it will leave for the work we do, some of it is just not explainable other than it good, old-fashioned discrimination. you heard cecile say is absolutely right. there is no woman's discount when we go to check out at the supermarket counter. i have been shopping a long time. at, i have never been looked by a cashier and said, ok you are a white woman. you only have to pay $.78. or my friends, you are black, you are latino, you do not have to pay the full freight. or $.55.ay $.65 that never happens. just a woman's issue this is a family issue.
if you have a woman, a wife, a sister, a daughter who are working then you have a stake in making sure they are paid equally. and, when you take about how hard it is an our country, the richest country in the world, in fact doing much better economically the and anybody else right now, when you think about how hard it is to be able to balance work and the family you have to ask yourself, why are we doing this to each other? every other advanced economy has figured out how to have family leave. paid family leave. i started working on family leave way back in the 1980's and i was thrilled when my husband passed a bill which had been vetoed twice by president george h.w. bush.
let's not forget, this is not agent history. -- ancient roman history. bill became president, congress passed it, send it to him, and 200 million plus people of taken advantage of it so that was a good first step. but, too many people could not take advantage of it. they could not take off time they were not paid for. that new baby, that's sick spouse, that ailing mother or rent parent, they could not take time off.
it is time for us. and kiersten has been a leader on this. it is time for us finally to pass paid family leave. you, this istell
something that is moving forward in the states. i want to applaud new york, applied california which has been doing it for more than 10 years. it does your president, we are going to deliver on paid family leave for the families of america. we also have to really focus on education. again, that is an issue for everybody. that is why i want early childhood education for and i want to thank shirley mcrae
and mayor defazio yorkaking sure that new city has universal pre-tape. an issue about whether or not the honor and to nurture the potential of everyone.
i think that is what america should be about. every single person has the right to a chance to live up to their potential and learning years.in the first five in elementary and secondary school, i intend to be a good partner with america's teachers to support our educators to make sure we are doing what will work to lift our children. and, let's spend more time trying to encourage mp, particularly younger girls to go into the stem courses. science, technology, engineering, mathematics. there are so many opportunities that are not being taken plustage of and again, 30 years ago we had a very high percentage of women graduating from college with degrees in computer sciences.
what happened? some of what happened is the way women were treated in the work force when they got into tech knowledge he. now we know, looking at salaries and promotion opportunities, it is not equal. encourage more young women to pursue these careers, we will get more transparency commitment from companies to treat men and women equally as and hire, as they promote, we are going to make college affordable for everybody in a workedt will act julie to send middle class, working, and poor kids to school. in we're going to tackle the student debt problem which is burdening so many young people.
we want more national service so that young people can perform national service and actually get a free ride or a totally discounted ride or get their debts forgiven for performing that kind of work. going to improve the affordable care act. i will defend it it. it is working. we've got to improve it and get the cost down. but again, this is something that is hardly ever talked about. ago onet that long clinical trials about how to treat diseases, including breast cancer, were only done on men. i know a lot of younger people must he shocked to hear that. i was shocked when i first heard that. we had to change a lot and now we have the affordable care act
and one of the great changes was to absolutely guarantee that women would no longer pay more for health insurance the end men. so all of these battles, you have got members of congress here are waging these battles. friend, congresswoman carolyn maloney has been on the front line. congresswoman sheila jackson lee has been waving the banner high. i know it is hard to believe there was ever a time like this, we do not want to go back. that is why it is important to think about how far we have come to protect the gains we have made. and we still have disparity in health care treatment between but alsomen particularly on the basis of income and access and we are
going to tackle that and get the cost of restriction dropped down for everybody. ad, let's finally make commitment to treating mental health problem like the health and issues they represent -- s do what more [cheers and applause] "hillary"] mrs. clinton and, let's do more to treat addiction. let's do more to save lives. there is exciting work ahead of us and tactically everything i said is opposed by the republicans.
they do not think we need to raise the minimum wage. donald trump says wages are too high and america right now. they do not believe equal pay as a problem. they do not want to move toward paid family leave. this is not just a free choice. there are consequences for how we vote and the agenda we put forward. about whater point is happening with the republicans, as we mentioned earlier is that they want to strip us of the rights we have. i stand in opposition. i will defend a woman's right to make her own health care decisions and i will defend land parenthood. [cheers and applause] : i was honored to
receive the planned parenthood action fund and the other and doris met because i have been on the front lines on behalf of of women's rights for a long time. and when trump said what he said about punishing women, i was appalled. that is a core issue and when he said it was a distraction, that he wanted to talk about the real issues, i was appalled again. there is nothing more important the in defending our human rights and this is a human right. if some ofmaybe these people who were either think it is a distraction or want to reverse it maybe if they went to some of the places i ise been in seen how that
viewed to suppress women's rights and their autonomy and where the government makes decisions, the consequences are horrible. whether it is chinese government policy or one child and forced abortions and sterilization or the policies of the communist regime in romania with forced childbearing, we cannot. we must not ever let governments and politicians make those decisions and as long as i am around, we never will. [cheers and applause]. mrs. clinton: and i tell you, i will also defend marriage onquality and will work discrimination against the lgbt
community. we are going to work on and pass am president.en i i will defend voting rights and work to reverse and end citizens united. i will defend the right to organize and bargain and the right of unions to represent people like mary. the american labor movement helped to build the american middle class and those who have forgotten it are undermining what it takes to make sure people are represented. i stopped at a ch inar was queens on the way here because the car washers have been unionizing. and for the first time they are getting a decent salary. they are getting benefits.
the most important thing we can do is give everyone the committee and purpose a job brings. they have the opportunity to continue to improve their standard of living, to provide a good middle-class lifestyle for themselves and their children. we're also going to fight for comprehensive immigration reform. i have said i will start this work immediately upon becoming resident, and i will. [yelling in spanish] mrs. clinton: thank you. i am so proud of new york. lady liberty stands an hour harbor. we are a city of immigrants, a
state of immigrants, and a nation of immigrants. in gs, we are going to fight together to take on the gun lobby for common sense gun safety reform. [chanting "hillary"] in issueton this is that knows no boundaries. people,nown too many fathers and mothers, siblings, children, close friends and loved ones who have lost people on average, 90 people a day are
killed and america. that is 33,000 people per year. and, there are many powerful lobbies in washington. as i said in the debate the other night in brooklyn, i said, look, bernie sanders talks a lot about the greed and recklessness on wall street. i have the toughest lands. they know it because they are trying to beat me. running ads, forming hedge runs. there are good at making their assessment and they know i am trouble for them. so i agree with that. so, what about the greed and recklessness of the gun manufacturers and sellers? i could not believe it when senator sanders said the parents of the sandy hook children did not deserve their day in court
largely because he voted for the bill that gave special to actions, immunity from liability to the gun makers and sellers. i was in the senate at the same time. obama.barack i voted against it, barack obama voted against it, bernie sanders voted or it. this has got to be a voting issue. we have got to organize ourselves to take on this powerful lobby. coming afterm them. they are already coming after me and i consider that a badge of honor. i will stand with gabby for any day to take them on. so, my friends, we have work to do. take ahe folks from stand. we are to protect social security and make sure we keep the trust fund going.
we have a lot of work to do. i cannot do any of that work without you and when i think about the test the next president faces, the first one is, can you produce positive results. the second is, can you protect us and you know there is nothing more important right here in new york. i think what you're hearing from trump and cruise is not only offensive, it is dangerous. when donald trump says, no muslims can come to america, a nation founded on religious liberty in case he had not been taught that. us, ites not only offend sends a message to the rest of the world. if we are going to defeat terrorism and isis and particular we need a coalition of nations to stand with us to make sure we and the threats coming from them.
i know how hard it is to create a coalition because i did create the coalition that imposed sanctions on iran, including dina and russia which forced them to the negotiating table and i know it is hard and it does on helped him some but he running for president and salting the religion of a number of the nations we need in the coalition to help us to eat aces in the first place -- to help us defeat isis in the first place. profiling the religion of american muslims is beyond absurd and that is what the chief of the nypd said. well, what am i going to do with in new0 police officers york who are american muslims? and, commissioner bill bradley summed it up by saying, ted cruz does not know what the hell he
is talking about. so, yes, we have to protect ourselves and we have duly the world in accordance with our values and lightly, we have to unify our country. there's is too much demagoguery and hate-filled speech going on. is just so impossible to imagine people running for president would be saying what they are saying. in citing violence between him and him on americans. i will go anywhere, anytime to meet with anybody to find common ground. we will find that common ground. we will find those solutions. what i will also stand my ground on your behalf. protecting your rights, making sure we are moving forward together. you know, there is a lot that is special for me about this
primary tomorrow because i did run here and because you were also supportive but there's something else i want to end with. you know, the first statement ever recorded in human history that set forth a rationale for women to have rights happened in seneca falls, new york. susan b anthony, elizabeth cady stanton, frederick douglass who joined forces with women. who were claiming that they, too, should have a right to vote. that they, too, should have a right to serve on juries to be full citizens.
that is declaration of sentiments. you can google it later as i am sure you will. that kicked off the suffrage movement. and, again, it did not come easily. there were protests. demonstrations. eventually, women chaining themselves to the fence around the white house. going to prison. going on hunger strikes to claim the right to vote. that waseven to a granted. we will celebrate the 100 anniversary in 2020. when i think about the sacrifices of the suffragettes, when i think about the
sacrifices of the leaders of the civil rights movements, when i think about those who were dorificed for trying to other things, starting in the 19th century and going into the 20th century, to make a very simple claim on the idea that we are all created equal. life, have a right to liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. we all have a stake in america. this is what this election is about. please, vote tomorrow. bring everybody you know. let's stand together for the future of america. thank you all very much.
announcer: representatives from state and local agencies as well as counsel will be in the house tomorrow to talk about energy. we will take you to the hearing live on our companion network c-span3. donald trump spoke at a campaign rally in buffalo, new york. his last scheduled public event a.ore the state's timer he was introduced by the head
coach of the buffalo bills. this is about one hour. announcer: ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the head coach of the buffalo bills, >> ryan. rjex ryan. [cheers and applause] >> well. i tell you what. look at this, man. awesome. fantastic. you know what, guys? obviously we all know i am not a politician. i am not a public speaker. i am just a football coach.
thought i would do today is i think i am going to tell you a football story and this football story includes ?onald trump, ok so, donald trump is the owner of andnew jersey generals whatever that league was, u.s. fl and the funny thing is one of my coaches actually coach for mr. trumps team. a guy named chris palmer. and the ball is on the one yard line. the generals have two running backs. they have a big huge fullback named maurice and the other back walker.y named herschel just a guy, right. so herschel walker obviously is a great act and everything else and worries cost on, just a huge
blocking back. and in typical coach fashion, the ball is on the one yard line and he says, let's trick the defense. let us give the ball to maurice carr on. he gets smashed. so there it is again. and all of a sudden the phone , yes i've the phone up sir, mr. trump. and this is what he said. the conversation went like this. he said, you know the next time you give the ball to maurice instead of herschel walker, you are fired. that is a true story. a true story. we're all here tonight because we all support donald trump and some things i want to say there you go.
absolutely. there's so much i admire about mr. trump but one thing i really admire him is, you know what? he will say what is on his mind. and so many times you will see people, a lot of people want to say the same thing but there is a big difference. they do not have the courage to say it. they all think it but they do not have the courage to say it. and donald trump certainly has the courage to say at the end that is what i respect and you know what? so do the people of new york. the other thing that we all know, this man is one of the greatest businessmen obviously, you know, that we can ever
remember. there is no question about that. so you know what, one of the things, though, that did we learn? when i am up to trying to introduced donald trump, what did we learnoday? he is also smart enough to give the ball to herschel walker. with that being said, it is a great honor for me to introduce donald trump.
