tv MSNBC - Republican National Convention MSNBC July 21, 2016 7:00pm-8:01pm PDT
protecting our families and keeping our cities safe. >> we need it from our national leaders that's what we're not getting at right now. >> he's the one candidate, the nonpolitician who can fix our broken economy and get america working again. >> trump is a guy, brand new, comes in, shakes up washington, changes policies on taxes and regulations and helped businesses and no income wage earnerill get a raise for the first time in 15 years. >> donald will stand up for america. >> donald trump understands negotiation. there's just no doubt about it. it's one of his great strengths and we have been taken to the cleaners in world trade. we're losing jobs every year, every day as a result of bad trade policies and bad trade agreements. >> some say our best days are past.
donald believes our best days are yet to come. >> >> ronald reagan was a cheerleader for america. he would talk about what a great country this is. how important it is to work. that gives incentive to people and makes working hopeful. i think what donald trump can do, he can give us hope again, he can give us pride in being an american again. he can make us feel like what we should feel like. we're exceptionally lucky people living in this country. >> donald trump is a leader, not a politician. he will be honest with the american people. he will stop wasteful government spending of our tax dollars. he will cut our taxes and create jobs and will rebuild our broken economy. hi will lead this country, not apologize to the world for our success. he will always put america's best interests first, whether it's a trade deal with china, or standing up to radical islamic terrorists. as he's done so many times
before, he'll stand up for the brave men and women who defend our country and who'll protect us here at home. he'll bring about the change this country so desperately needs and gets the job done. it's been a long time since we've had a president like that. donald trump, it's time to make america great again. >> the lights are back up in the hall again. >> good evening. thank you. one year ago -- i introduced my
father when he declared candidacy. in his own way he entered the political arena as an outsider. and he prevailed against a field of 16 very talented competitors. for more than a year, donald trump has been the people's champion. tonight he's the people's nominee. like many of my fellow republican or democrat, more than party, affiliation i vote based on what i believe is right for our family and country. sometimes it's a tough choice, that's not the case this time. as proud daughter of the nominee, i'm here to tell you, this is the moment and donald
trump is the person to make america great again. real change is only going to come from outside the system and it's only going to come from a man who spent his entire life doing what others said could not be done. my father is a fighter. when the primaries got tough and they were tough, he did what any great leader does, he dug deeper, worked harder, got better and became stronger. [ applause ] i have seen him fight for his
family, companies, and now i am seeing him fight for our country. . it's been the story of his life and more recently, the spirit of his campaign. it's also a prelude to reaching the goal that units us all, when this party and better still this country knows what it is like to win again. if it's possible to be famous and well-known, that's the father that raised me. in trump tower i remember playing on the floor constructing miniature buildings, while he did the same with concrete, steel and glass. my father taught my siblings and me the importance of positive values and a strong ethical compass. he showed us how to be resilient, how to deal with challenges, and how to strive for excellence in all that we do
he taught us there's nothing we cannot accomplish if we marry vision and passion with an enduring work ethic. >> one of his greatest talents is ability to see potential in people before they see it in themselves. he taught us potential vanishes and to nothing without effort, and that like him, we each had a responsibility to work not just for ourselves, but for the betterment for the world around us. over the jeer years i -- years i saw my father tell stories about people who he had never met facing injustice or hardship. he'd write a note to his assistant and requested the
person be found and invited to trump tower to meet with him. he would talk to him and draw upon his extensive network to find them a job or get them a break. they would leave his office as people so often do after been with donald trump, feeling that life can be great again. throughout my entire life i've witnessed his generosity towards others, especially those who are suffering. it is just his way of being in your corner when you're down. he not only has the strength, but the kindness and come pass that will enable him to be the leader that this country needs. my father had a sense of fairness that touches every convention he holds.
i worked alongside him at the trump organization and i've seen how he operates, making important decisions that shape careers and that change lives. i learned a lot about the world from walking construction jobs by his side, when run properly, construction sites are true merry to be k merry mare to be kra -- meritocacy. these are incredible melting pots gathering people from all walks of life and uniting them to work towards a single mission. there have always been men of all background and ethnicities on my father's job sites and long before it was commonplace, you also saw women. my father values talent. he recognizes real knowledge and
skin when he finds it. he is color blind and gender neutral. he hires the best person for the job, period. words and promises, no matter how visionary they sound will only get you so far. in our business, you're not a builder unless you've got a building to show for it. in my father's case, city skylines. [ applause ] most people strive their entire lives to achieve great success in a single industry. my father has succeeded in many, on the highest level and on a global scale. one of the reasons he has thrived as an entrepreneur is because he listens to everyone. millionaire executives don't ask the people doing the work for their opinion of the work. my father is an exception. on every one of his projects,
you'll see him talking to the super, the painter, the engineers, electricians. he'll ask them for their feedback. if they think something should be done differently or could be done better. when donald trump is in charge, all that counts is a ability, effort and excellence. >> this has long been the philosophy. at my father's company, there are more female than male executives. women are paid equally for the work that we do and when a woman becomes a mother, she is supported, not shut out.
women represent 46% of the total labor force and 46% have female breadwinners. in 2014 they made 83 cents for every dollars made by a man. single woman without children earned # 4 cents. married mothers made only 77 cents. as researchers have noted, gender is no longer the factor creating the greatest way to discrepancy in this country, mother hood is. as president, my father will change the labor laws that were put in place when women were not significant portion and he will focus on making quality child care affordable and accessible for all.
as a mother myself of three young children, i know how hard it is to work while raising a family. i also know that i'm far more fortunate than most. american families need relief. policies that allow women with children to thrive should not be novelties, they should be the norm. politicians talk about wage equality, but my father has made it a practice that at his company throughout his entire career. he will fight for equal pay, for equal work. and i will fight for this, too, right alongside of him. americans today need an economy that permits people to rise again. a trump presidency will turn the
economy around and restore of giving each new generation hope for brighting opportunities than those of the generation that came before. . with donald trump you know the difference between wanting something done and make a difference. floor by floor soaring structure will appear, usually record setting in its height and iconic in its design. real people are hired to do real work, vision becomes reality. when my father says that he will make america great again, he will deliver. . we have a chance this year to reclaim our heritage as a country that dreams big and makes the impossible happen.
fortunately donald trump is incapable of thinking small. when i was a child, my father always told me, if you're going to be thinking any way, you minus well think big. my father will take on the worthy fights, he'll be unafraid to set goals and he'll be relentless
in his determination to achieve them. to people all over america, i say, when you have my father in my corner, you'll never again have to be again about being let down. he'll fight for you all the way, every way, every time. [ applause ] [ applause ] [ applause ] [ applause ] maybe it's the developer in him, but he cannot stand to see empty main streets and boarded up
factories. he can't bear the injustice by college graduates who crippled by student debt. required to return to work to better the family to better lives of their families. they see these hardships and see the unfairness of it all and they say, i feel for you. only my father will say, i'll fight for you. [ applause ] the hardworking men and women of this country, she's tough and he's persevering, he's honest and he's real. he's an optimist and he's a relentless believer in america and all of her potential. he loves his family and he loves his country with his heart and his soul. politicians asked to be judged by their promises, not their results. i ask you to judge my father by his results, judge his values by
those he's instilled in his children. judge his competency by the towers he's built, the companies he's founded and tens of thousands of jobs he's created. he's single most qualified person to serve as chief executive of a $18 trillion economy. [ applause ] my father is the best and brightest people of all of industry, a new set of thinkers to face our country's existing and future problems with fresh perspective and brave new solutions. come january 17, all things will be possible again. we can hope and dream and think big again, no one has more faith in the american people than my father. he'll be your greatest, truest and your most loyal champion.
[ applause ] [ applause ] >> this moment in the life of our country has defined a mission and given it to an extraordinary man. he is ready to see it all the way through, to speak to every man and every woman of every background in every part of this country, to earn your trust and to earn your vote, hearing that and much more from me a long time ago, i've loved and respected him my entire life. i could not be more proud tonight, to present to you and to all of america, my father and our next president, donald j. trump.
and that the republican party would get 60% more votes than it received 8 years ago. who would have believed this? who would have believed this [ applause ] . the democrats, on the other hand, received 20% fewer votes than they got 4 years ago. not so good. not so good. together we will lead our party back to the white house and we will lead our country back to safety, prosperity, and peace. . we will be a country of generosity and warmth. but we will also be a country of
law and order. [ applause ] [ applause ] our convention occurs at a moment of crisis for our nation, the attacks on our police and the terrorism for our cities, threat, are a very way of life. any politician who does not grasp this danger is not fit to lead our country. [ applause ] americans watching this address tonight have seen the recent images of violence in our streets and the chaos in our
communities. many have witnessed this violence personally, some have even been its victims. i have a message for all of you, the crime and violence that today inflicts our nation, will soon, i mean very soon, come to an end. [ applause ] >> beginning on january 20th of 2017, safety will be restored. the most basic duty of government is to defend the lives of its own citizens. any government that fails to do so is a government unworthy to
me. it is finally time for a straightforward assessment of the state of our nation. [ applause ] i will present the facts plainly and honestly. [ applause ] we cannot afford to be so politically correct any more. so if you want to hear the corporate spin, the carefully crafted lies, and the media myths, the democrats are holding their convention next week.
go there. but here at our convention, there will be no lies, we will honor the american people with the truth and nothing else. [ applause ] [ usa ] usa. >> these are the facts, decades of progress made in bringing down crime are now being reversed by this administration's row back of criminal enforcement. homicide last year increased by 17% in america's 50 largest cities, that's the largest
increase in 25 years. in our nation's capitol, killings have risen by 50%. they're up nearly 60% in nearby baltimore. in the president's hometown of chicago, more than 2,000 people have been the victim of shootings this year alone. and almost 4,000 have been killed in the chicago area since he took office. the number of police officers killed in the line of duty has risen almost 50%, compared to this point last year. nearly 180,000 illegal immigrants, with criminal records, ordered deported from
our country are tonight roaming free to threaten peaceful citizens. [ boo ] the number of new illegal immigrant families already exceeds the entire total from 2015. they are being released by the tens of thousands into our communities with no regard for the impact on public safety or resources. [ build that wall ] >> one such border was released
and made his way to nebraska. there he ended the life of an innocent young girl named sarah rue. she was 21 years old and was killed the day after graduating from college with a 4.0 grade point average, number one in her class. her killer was then released a second time and he is now a fugitive from the law. i've met sarah's beautiful family. but to this administration, their amazing daughter was just one more american life that wasn't worth protecting no more. [ boo ] one more child to sacrifice on the order and on the alter of open borders.
what about our economy? again, i will tell you, the plain facts that have been edited out of your nightly news and your morning newspaper, nearly 4 in 10 african-american children are living in poverty while 58% of african-american youth are now not employed. two million more latinos are in poverty today than when president obama took his oath of office less than eight years ago. another 14 million people have left the work force entirely. household incomes are down, more than $4,000 since the year 2,000, that's 16 years ago, our trade deficit in goods reach nearly, think of this.
trade deficit is $800 billion -- think of that $800 billion last year alone. we're going to fix that. [ applause ] the budget is no better. president obama has almost doubled our national debt to more than $19 trillion and growing and yet, what do we have to show for it. our roads and bridges are falling apart, our airports are third world condition and 43 million americans are on food stamps. now, let us consider the state
of affairs abroad. not only have our citizens endured domestic disaster, but they've lived through one international humiliation after another, one after another. we all remember the images of sailors being forced to their knees by their iranian captors at gun point. this was just prior to the signing of the iran deal which gave back to iran $150 billion and gave us absolutely nothing. it will go down in history as one of the worst deals ever negotiated. another humiliation came when
president obama drew red line in syria and the whole world knew it meant absolutely nothing. in libya, our consulate, the symbol of prestige around the globe was brought down in flames. america is far less safe, and the world is far less stable than when obama made the decision to put pill hillary cl in charge of america's foreign
policy. [ applause ] let's defeat her in november. i am certain that it was a decision that president obama truly regrets. her bad instincts and bad judgment, something pointed out by bernie sanders are what caused so many of the disasters unfolding today. let's review the record. [ applause ] in 2009 prehillary, isis was not even on the map.
libya was stable, egypt was peaceful, iraq was seeing and really a big big reduction in violen violence. iran was being choked by sanctions. syria was somewhat under control. after four years of hillary clinton, what do we have, isis has spread across the region and the entire world. libya is in ruins, and our ambassador and staff were left helpless to die at the hands of savage killers. egypt was turned over to the radical muslim brotherhood forcing the military to retake control. iraq is in chaos. iran is in on the path to nuclear weapons. syria is engulfed in a civil war and refugee crisis now threatens
the west. after 15 years of wars in the middle east, after trillions of dollars spent and thousands of lives lost, the situation is worse than it has ever been before. this is the legacy of hillary clinton, death, destruction, terrorism and weakness. [ applause ] but hillary clinton's legacy does not have to be america's legacy. the problems we face now, poverty and violence at home, war and destruction abroad, will last only as long as we continue relying on the same politicians who created them in the first
americanism, not globalism will be our credo as long as we are led by politicians who will not who will not put america first, then we can be assured that other nations will not treat america with respect, the respect that we deserve. the american people will come first once again. my plan will begin with safety at home, which means safe
neighborhoods, secure borders and protection from terrorism. there can be no prosperity without law and order. the economy to to millions of new jobs and trillions that can be used to rebuild america. a number of these reforms that i will outline tonight will be opposed by some of our nation's most powerful special interests, that's because these interests have rigged our political and economic system for their exclusive benefit, believe me,
it's for their benefit. big business, elite media and major donors are lining up behind the campaign of my opponent because they know she will keep our rigged system in place. [ boo ] they're throwing money at her because they have total control over single thing she does. she's their puppet and they pull the strings. [ applause ] that is why hillary clinton's message is that things will never change, never ever. my message is that things have
to change and they have to change right now. [ applause ] every day i wake up determined to deliver a better life for the people all across this nation that have been ignored, neglected and abandoned. i have visited the laid off factory workers and the communities crushed by our horrible and unfair trade deals. these are the forgotten men and women of our country and they are forgotten, but they're not going to be forgotten long.
thank you. i have no patience for injustice, no tolerance for government and incompetence. no sympathy for leader who is failed their citizens. when innocent people suffer because our political system lacks the will or the courage or the basic decency to enforce our laws or still worse, has sold out to some corporate lobbyist for cash, i am not able to look the other way and i won't look the other way. and when a secretary of state, illegally stores her e-mails on
a private server, deletes 33,000 of them so the authorities can't see her crime, puts our country at risk, lies about it in every different form and faces no consequence, i know that corruption has reached a level like never ever before in our country. when the fbi director says that the secretary of state was extremely careless and negligent
in handling our classified secrets, i also know that these terms are minor compared to what she actually did. they were just used to save her from facing justice for her terrible, terrible crimes. [ applause ] in fact, her single greatest accomplishment may be committing such egregious crime and getting away with it, especially when others who have done far less have paid so dearly. [ applause ] when that same secretary of state rakes in millions and millions of dollars trading access and favors to special
i have seen firsthand how the system is rigged against our citizens just like it was rigged against bernie sanders. he never had a chance. he never had a chance. but his supporters will join our movement because we will fix his biggest single issue, trade deals that strip our country of its jobs and strip us of our wealth as a country. [ applause ] millions of democrats will join our movement, because we're going to fix the system so it works fairly and justly for each
amazing. he's a man of character and accomplishment. he's the man for the job, the first task for our new administration will be to liberate our citizens from the crime and terrorism and lawness that threatens our communities, america was shocked to its core when our police officers in dallas were so brutally executed. immediately after dallas, we've seen continued threats and violence against our law enforcement officials, law officers have been shot or killed in recent days in georgia, missouri, wisconsin, kansas, michigan, and tennessee.
[ boo ] on sunday more police were gunned down in baton rouge louisiana, three were killed and three were very, very badly injured. an attack on law enforcement is an attack on all americans. [ applause ] i have a message to every last person threatening the peace on our streets and the safety of our police. when i take the oath of office next year, i will restore law
and order to our country. believe me. believe me. i will work with and appoint the best and prosecutors and law enforcement officials to get the job properly done. in this race for the white house, i am the law and order candidate. [ applause ] the irresponsible rhetoric of our president, who has used the
pulpit of the presidency to divide us by race and color, has made america a more dangerous environment than, frankly, i have ever seen and anybody in this room has ever watched or seen. this administration has failed america's inner cities. remember, it has failed america's inner cities. it's failed them on education. it's failed them on jobs. it's failed them in crime. it's failed them in every way and on every single level. when i am president, i will work to ensure that all of our kids are treated equally and protected equally.
[ applause ] every action i take, i will ask myself, does this make better for young americans in baltimore, in chicago, in detroit, in ferguson, who have really in never way, folks, the same right to live out their dreams as any other child in america, any other child. to make life safe for all of our citizens, we must also address the growing threats we face from outside the country. we are going to defeat the barbarians of isis and we're going to defeat them fast. [ applause ]
once again, france is the victim of brutal islamic terrorism. men, women and children viciously mowed down, lives ruined, families ripped apart, a nation in mourning. the damage and devastation that can be inflicted by islamic read cals has been proven over and over, at the world trade center and at an office party in san bernardino, at the boston marathon. at a military recruiting center in chattanooga, tennessee, and many, many other locations. only weeks ago in orlando, florida, 49 wonderful americans
me. [ applause ] [ chanting ] and i have to say as a republican, it is so nice to hear you cheering for what i just said. thank you. [ applause ] [ applause ] [ applause ] [ applause ] to protect us from terrorism, we need to focus on three things. we must have the best, absolutely the best gathering of intelligence anywhere in the
world, the best. we must abandon the failed policy of nation building and regime change that hillary clinton pushed in iraq, in libya, in egypt and in syria. instead, we must work with all of our allies who share our goal of destroying isis and stamping out islamic terrorism and doing it now, doing it quickly. we're doing to win. we're going to win. we're going to win fast. [ applause ] [ applause ]
been picking up the cost. shortly there after, it was announced that nato will be setting up a new program in order to combat terrorism, a true step in the right direction. lastly and very importantly, we must immediately suspend immigration from any nation that has been compromised by terrorism, until such time as proven vetting mechanisms have been put in place, we don't want them in our country. [ applause ] [ applause ] [ applause ]
many opponent has called a radical 550% increase in syrian -- think of this, think of this. this is not believable, but this is what's happening. a 550% increase in syrian refugees on top of the existing massive refugee flows coming into our country already under the "leadership" of president obama. she proposes this, despite the fact that there is no way to screen these refugees in order to find out who they are or er
