tv Campaign 2020 Joe Biden in Keene New Hampshire CSPAN August 25, 2019 12:29pm-1:59pm EDT
alternative. i am running because he is unfit. somebody needs to step up. there needs to be an alternative. the country is sick of this guy's tantrum. he is a child. he lies every time he opens his mouth. look at what has happened this week. he is the president of the united states. he is tweeting us into a recession. >> former vice president joe biden gave a campaign speech and met with voters in new hampshire. this is about an hour and a half.
>> vice president biden will repair and revitalize our relationships with allies and neighbors to restore leadership. these relationships are vital to our national security. as someone working on the front lines to mitigate the suicide and substance use epidemics, i can say america's veterans, first responders, and their families cannot afford to start over. we must improve on the affordable care act. vice president biden has the experience to do that. as a veteran, i know vice president biden appreciates the costs of the sacrifices of serving our country. both of his sons served this country. on a personal level, vice president biden and president
toma made it possible for me serve our nation openly and without fear. do when ii cannot first started my military career. i am forever grateful for that. we cannot move backwards on civil liberties. it is the honor of a lifetime to introduce vice president joe biden. [cheers and applause] ♪ >> thank you, thank you, thank you. hello. that -- i love you too. i love this town.
backs my danger of coming to often. i might not leave. this is god's country. thinking madam president. that there are a things that i want to talk about today, but i have a tradition that i have honored, and most people do since i have been involved in national politics. i never criticize the president's foreign-policy when he is abroad. i mean this sincerely. i have a lot more to things thao talk about say about the president's foreign-policy and what is going on at the g7 and what is going on with russia. i am not going to take the time today. is an omission by intention because i don't think it is appropriate for me to be criticizing an american
president while they are abroad engaging in foreign-policy. as it relates to foreign-policy. eric, you areto doing a great job for an awful lot of warriors that come home in tough shape. dayrry my schedule every for the last 407 years. 12the back for the last little black box on the bottom. morningy staff every contact the defense department. i want to know exactly the angels thatllen have died or been wounded. as of today, yesterday when i spoke, it was 6883.
today it is 6885. 52,886.ound i hate it when people say we are over 5000 or 6000. every one of these women and men have left an entire community behind and deserve to be remembered. is workings doing with these folks. eric is not on this list. there are roughly 300,000 soldiers as a consequence of iraq and afghanistan since we went in who are coming home with ptsd. more people are dying of suicide. more military personnel are dying of suicide than are being killed in action. we have to pay attention to it. it relates to mental health
straight through to drug abuse, which in many cases is a mental health problem. in actions and activities that are almost beyond their control. we have an obligation. thank you for your commitment as a lieutenant in the u.s. navy to continue to fight for these women and men. [applause] there are many things to talk about today, and i am not going to trespass on too much of your time because it could keep you standing for hours. let me begin by saying what i am not going to talk about. but just mentioned briefly. now as what is happening of yesterday, the trump
administration has filed a brief and gone to the supreme court of the u.s. to say that otb take you people have no civil rights it is -- he is already challenging the right to marry, to dan transgender service members, removing title ix protections from students. we have to pass the equality act . under my administration, we will get it passed. you know, when i launched my campaign, i made my stop here right after my announcement. i said you would be seeing a lot of money. the bad news is you will be seeing a lot of me. the two hold one of
keys to the gate. this is -- i get in trouble with my staff when i say this, but this is god's country here. you guys are lucky to be where you are. launched, this morning, there is something that is truly frightening for not only our nation but the world. this administration is actually falling apart. economicpressure of and the economy teetering on recession, i think we are all concerned about their ability to handle not just the economics but the emotional consequences. the trade war with china is blowing up. we just learned the u.s. created 500,000 fewer jobs than it thought last year.
warning signs from an inverted bond market to complex manufacturing are around us. we are only going to make this administration more erratically. there is a lot to say about international relations. i'm going to keep that for another day. president trump is in trouble, and he knows it. we are going to have to fight even harder and push back against the worst instincts to come out of this administration. to diminish.going they are going to increase. i have said it many times. we can overcome for years. can you hear me in the back? ofcan overcome for years this administration, but if we give it another four years, this white house will fundamentally and forever change the character of this country. which brings me to the point, we cannot just be a campaign about
beating president donald trump. trafficking in some of the ugliest and darkest forces that have run through this nation's history. a simple campaign is not enough to beat him. it has to be a movement. it has to be a movement grounded on the values and ideals that define us as a nation. america is unique in all the world. no other nation was founded the way we are. we hold these truths self-evident. no nation has ever been founded on that. we the people in order to form a more perfect union -- it is unique in history. no tyrant can take us down. only america can itself apart. this has to be a movement to stand up for who we are and what we believe. democrats have a special responsibility.
i think an obligation to do more than just win. president wilson said the party is worth no more than that for which it stands. we have to stand for the country. we have to repair the moral fabric in this country. the conservative columnist talks about an invisible moral fabric that holds up society that is being ripped. it has to be restored. we have to reach beyond our party. we have to unify the country. we have to restore the soul of the nation. we have to be what we once were again. we never fully lived up to our obligations. we walked away from them before. we never abandoned them completely. values to be a nation of , treating everyone with respect and dignity.
giving everyone a fair shot. leaving nobody behind. giving hate no safe harbor. demonizing no one. lending the power of our example , not just the example of our power. as a begin for the we are part of something bigger than ourselves. this electionat is different. not because i am running. we know it is different. we know. the words that presidents say matter. they can move markets. they can send our brave men and women to war. they can bring peace. they can appeal to our better thels, or they can unleash deepest darkest forces in this nation.
ladies and gentlemen, we are in a battle the soul or america. that is why i am running for president. runningnd reason i am -- [applause] by the way, can you think of any president when you saw what happened in charlottesville said there are good people on both sides? no president has ever said anything like that. the closest you could come is before the war with andrew johnson. there is a second reason i am running. we have to restore the backbone of this country. the middle class. wall street did not build america. you built america. my mother and father built america. it was built by hard-working ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
that is the journey of the history of this country. my dad used to have an expression. he said it all the time after he lost a job in scranton. my dad was a salesperson. there was no work. it would only say, a job is about a lot more than a paycheck. it is about your dignity. it is about respect. it is about your place in the community. look about being able to at your child and say it is going to be ok and mean it. a lot of people, maybe some of you have had to do it from the great recession we had. a lot of you have had to make the longest walk a parent can make to tell your son or daughter you cannot go back to the same school. mommy or daddy lost their job. today, when my dad made that long walk when i was a kid, he said it was going to be ok.
he meant it. he thought it could happen, and it happened. today, many people don't believe that. they can't do that. we have to change this. the majority of middle-class people think their kids will never have the chance they had. we are no longer the wealthiest middle-class in the world. i know i am called middle-class joe. it is not meant as a compliment. i'm pretty sophisticated about what we need as a nation. the reason why we need a strong middle class is the middle-class does well, everybody does well. the poor have a way out, and the wealthy do very well. the reason for america's social, political, and economic stability through difficult times has been a strong middle class. we are losing that now. my northstar as president will be rebuilding the middle-class and training everybody along.
way, i have a number of brilliant economists who work for me. we asked them to define middle-class. they will give you a number. it is not a number. it is a value set. being able to own your own home and not rent it. kid toble to send your the park and know they will come home safely. being able to send your kid to the local public school, and if they do well, they will be able go beyond. you have a little breathing room. it is a value set. every american in order to be of the have that value set, it matters to every family that there is good education and economic opportunity and access to affordable health care.
a climate that you can breathe the air and drink the water. [applause] >> i don't have a middle ground. [crowd person yelling] >> you can talk with me later. i'm happy to talk with you about it. i agree with her. here's the deal. in order for people to maintain their dignity, you have to be able to have the ability to have a health care plan that is affordable and decent. you have as when sick child with a pre-existing condition, and there is nothing you can do about it. it deprives you of your dignity.
you are being told somewhere along the line that you have a husband or son and daughter who has terminal cancer. how many of you have lost and/or arecancer dealing with it? it is the same in every single crowd i speak to. you know what i am talking about. i cannot imagine what it would be like when my son coming home from the war in afghanistan -- iraq for a year and two years later contracting terminal cancer. it only gave him months to live. he outlived the months, but he did not outlive the prognosis. he was attorney general in the state of delaware. he was determined to finish his job. i cannot imagine my daughter-in-law and might grandchildren lying there in bed
and to have an insurance company say your time is up. you have outlived your coverage. you are finished. about not only the but what our families is the worst thing for a parent? to look at a child with an opportunity or problem and know there is nothing you can do to help them. that doesn't have to be this way. that is why we need to finish the job on health care. when we passed the affordable care act, i told president obama it was a big deal or something to that effect. i did not know. thank god my mom wasn't around. anyway. he made historic progress in extending health insurance to 20 million people, americans who did not have it before.
providing protections for 100 million people with pre-existing conditions. we now have to finish that job. we have to make health care a right, not a privilege. give everyone the peace of mind they deserve. for me that means a public option. it is the most cost effective way to get universal coverage by protecting and building obamacare while increasing access and reducing costs. when it comes to education, my wife is a teacher. she is back in the classroom at a community college where she teaches in northern virginia. she says any country that out educates us will outcompete us. we have to make sure every child that gets an education regardless of their zip code. we have to eliminate the funding gap that exists between rich and poor districts. that is why i put a plan in to
take title i funding for distressed schools and districts and triple the amount of money we spend from 15 to $45 billion. climate,o invest in investing $400 million as no one else has suggested to accelerate innovation, partnering with farmers and ranchers to develop the next generation of biofuels and working with farmers to capture carbon. building clean energy infrastructure from a nationwide infrastructure to have them all in place by 2030 for the 21st century railroad system. you need one here in your state by the way. course toerica on a net zero commissions and clean energy economy. i am running for president because i believe we need to unify this nation. by some of myld
300 opponents. i am only joking. there are a lot of qualified people running. i know i am being attacked for being naive about being able to pull the nation together. if we cannot pull the nation together, we are in deep trouble. we are not going to get anything done. we're just going to engage in the greater abuse of power by a president by executive order. the only way we are going to get anything done is by working together. the president has decided to be president of his days. i will be president for every american. everybody knows who donald trump is. we have to let him know who we are. we choose hope over fear. we choose unity over division. truth overlies and science over fiction. look, i am you standing for too long.
and the pressed is probably tired of hearing me say this. i get frustrated with democrats and republicans walking with their heads down. thingis not a single beyond this nation's capacity. when i got elected one is 29 years old to the senate, they said i was a young idealist and optimist. i am more optimistic about america's chances in the 21st century than i have ever been in my entire life. we have to first get rid of donald trump to do it. think about it, we have the largest economy in the world. we have more great research universities in the u.s. and the rest of the world combined, and you own them. ourre in a position where workers are three times as productive as they are in asia. about?e we worried it is time to remember who we are.
why do we set up darpa, advanced research projects. why aren't we doing the same thing in health care? overould be putting away the next four years $100 billion to deal with alzheimer's, diabetes, cancer. no other group can do that. we can do it. we can get it done. this young manes standing here in the front, his generation is going to see more incredible change if we move forward and are able to take back this country in the next 10 years than the rest of you have seen in the last 50 years. we are on the verge of so much that can be done. i really mean it. this is a genuine opportunity to not only take out donald trump,
the president of the united states, but to unite the country in a common purpose. is thet of the matter vast majority of the american people, democrat and republican .gree on the issues it is our politics that are broken. they are ugly. they are mean. they are directed by a white house that is now preaching division based on race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation. it is just wrong. we have to bring it back together. into greatoing detail, and i'm happy to do it and provide for all of you the ability to know my position on all of these issues. one thing for certain. , promise you, i promise you the united states of america will own the 21st century if we invest in our people, remember
