eating up large portions of middle east they become rich im in competition with them they just built hotel in syria can you believe this they built hotel when i have to build hotel i pay interest then have pay interest because they took the oil that when we left iraq i said we should have taken so now isis has the oil and what they dont have iran has and in nineteen and will tell you this and said it very strongly years ago i said and i love the military and i want have the strongest military that weve ever had and needed more now than ever but said dont hit iraq because youre going to totally destabilize the middle east iran is going to take over the middle east iran and somebody else will get the oil and it turned out that iran is now taking over iraq think of it iran is taking over iraq and they take it over big league we spent two trillion dollars in iraq two trillion we lost thousands of lives thousands in iraq we have wounded soldiers who i love i love the great all over the place thousands and thousands of wounded soldiers and we have nothing we cant even go there we have nothing and every time we give iraq equipment the first time a bullet goes off the air they leave it last

ran and the enemy took on youre right last quarter was just announced our gross domestic product sign of strained right but not for us it was below zero whoever heard of this its never below zero our labor participation rate was the worst since nineteen seventy eight but think it g. d. p. below zero horrible labor participation rate and our real unemployment is anywhere from eighteen to twenty percent dont believe five point six dont believe it thats right lot people up there cant get jobs they cant get jobs because there are no jobs because china has our jobs and mexico has our jobs they all of jobs but the real number the real number is anywhere from eighteen to nineteen and maybe even twenty one percent and nobody talks about it because its statistic thats fallen nonsense our enemies i getting stronger and stronger by the day and we as country im getting weaker even our nuclear arsenal does it work it came out recently they have equipment thats thirty years old they dont even know if it worked and i thought was horrible when was broadcast on television because boy does that send signals to putin and all of the other people that look at us and they say that is group of people and that is nation colorado truth in all right at you we have disaster called the big lie obamacare obamacare yesterday came out that costs going for people up twenty nine thirty nine forty nine and even fifty five percent and deductibles are through the roof have to get hit by tractor literally a tractor to use it because the deductibles so high its virtually useless it is a disaster and remember the five billion dollar website five billion we spent website and to this day it doesnt work a five billion dollar website i have so many websites have all over place i hire people they do website cost three dollars five billion dollar website well you need somebody because politicians are all talk no action nothings going get done they will not bring us believe me to the promised land they will not as example ive been on the circuit making speeches and hear my fellow republicans and wonderful people i can they all want to support them they dont how bring about the come up to my office i im meeting with three of them next week and dont know tell you running are you not running could we have your support what we do how we do like and hear their speeches and dont talk jobs and dont talk china what was last time heard china is killing us theyre devaluing their currency to level that you wouldnt believe it makes it impossible for our companies to compete impossible theyre killing us but you dont hear that from anybody else you dont hear it from anybody else and i watch the speeches thank you i watch the speeches of these people and they say the sun will rise the moon will set all sorts of wonderful things will happen over and people saying going on just want job just get me job i dont need the rhetoric i want job and thats whats happening and its going get worse because remember obamacare really kicks in in sixteen twenty sixteen obama is going out playing golf you might even be on one of my courses would invite him i actually would say i have the best courses in world so say you know what if you want see have one right next the white house right on potomac if youd like to play thats fine but that love them to leave early and play that would be very good but obamacare kitchen in twenty sixteen really big lake it is going to be amazingly destructive doctors quitting i have friend whos doctor and said to me the other day donald i never saw anything like it i have more accountants than have nurses its disaster my patients are beside themselves they had plan that was good they have no plan now we have to repeal obamacare and it can repair if i and and it can be replaced with something much better for everybody let it be for everybody but much better and much less expensive for people and for government and we can do it so ive watched politicians ive dealt with them all my life if you cant make good deal with politician then theres something wrong with you youre certainly not very good and thats what we have representing us they will never make america great again they dont even have chance theyre controlled fully theyre controlled fully by the lobbyists by the donors and by the special interests fully thats the control of hey i have lobbyists had to tell you i have lobbyists that can produce anything for me great but you know what it wont happen it wont happen because we have to stop doing things for some people but for this country its destroying our country we have to stop and has to stop now now our country needs our country needs a truly great leader and we need a truly great leader now we need a leader that wrote the art of the deal we need a leader that can bring back our jobs can bring back our manufacturing can bring back our military can take care of our vets our vets have been abandoned and we also need cheerleader you know when president obama was elected i said well one thing i think hell do well think hell be great cheerleader for country i think youd be great spirit he was vibrant he was yeah i really thought that he would be great cheerleader hes not leader thats true youre right about that but he wasnt a cheerleader hes actually negative force spin negative force he wasnt cheerleader he was the opposite we need somebody that can take the brand of the united states and make it great again its not great again we need we need somebody we need somebody that literally will take this country and make it great again we can do that and i will tell you i love my life i have wonderful family theyre saying dad you going do something thats going be so tough know all of my life ive heard that truly successful person really really successful person and even modestly successful cannot run for public office just can happen and yet thats the kind of mindset that you need to make this country great again so ladies and gentlemen i am officially running the president of the united states and we are going to make our country great again mt it could happen art can has tremendous but we have tremendous people we have people that arent working we people that have no incentive to work but theyre going have incentive to work because the greatest social program is job and theyll be proud and theyll love it and theyll make much more money than wouldve ever made and theyll be theyll be doing so well and were going thriving as country thriving it can happen i will be the greatest jobs president that god ever created i tell you ill bring back our jobs from china from mexico from japan from so many places ill bring back our jobs and ill bring back our money right now think of this we owe china one point three trillion dollars we owe japan more than that so they come in they take our jobs they take our money and then they loan us back money and we pay them interest and then the dollar goes up so their deals even better how stupid our own leaders how stupid are these politicians to allow this to happen how stupid are they im going tell you thank you im going tell you couple stars about trade because im totally against trade bill for number reasons number one the people negotiating dont have clue our president doesnt have clue hes bad negotiator hes the one that did bergdahl we get bergdahl they get five killer terrorists that everybody wanted over there we get bergdahl we get traitor we get no good traitor and they get the five people that they wanted for years and those people now back on battlefield trying to kill us thats the negotiator we have take look at deal hes making with iran he makes that deal israel maybe wont exist very long its disaster and we have protect israel but so we need people im free trader but the problem with free trade is you need really talented people to negotiate for you if you dont have talented people if you dont have great leadership if you know that people that know business not just political hack they got the job because made contribution to campaign which is the way all jobs just about gotten free trade is terrible free trade can be wonderful if you have smart people but we have people that are stupid we have people that arent smart and we have people that controlled by special interests and its just not going work so heres couple stories happened recently friend of mine is great manufacturer and know china comes over they dump all their stuff and i buy it i buy because frankly have obligation buy because they devalue their currency so brilliantly they just did it recently and nobody thought they could do again but with all our problems with russia with all our problems with everything everything they got away with again and its impossible for our people here to compete so want tell you the story friend mine whos great manufacturer calls me up few weeks ago hes very upset see what your problem he said know make great product said know know that because buy the product said cant get it into china they wont accept it i sent boat over and actually sent it back they talked about environmental they talked about all sorts crap that had nothing to do with it i said no wait minute thats terrible does anyone notice he said yeah they do all the time with other people should send back yeah so finally got it over there and they charged me big tariff did not supposed be doing that i told them now they do charge tariff on trucks when we send trucks and other things over there ask boeing they wanted boeings secrets they wanted their patents and all their secrets before they agreed buy planes from boeing hey im not saying theyre stupid id like china i sell apartments attend i just sold apartment for fifteen million dollars somebody from china and supposed dislike i dont big chunk bank america building in twelve ninety avenue of the americas that i got from china in war very valuable i love china the biggest bank world is from china you know where their united states headquarters is located in this building in trump tower i love china people say you dont like china no love but their leaders much smarter than our leaders and we cant sustain ourself with that theres too much its like its take the new england patriots and tom brady and have them play your high school football team thats the difference between chinas leaders and our leaders they are ripping us we are rebuilding china were rebuilding many countries china you go there now roads bridges schools universidade thing like it they have bridges that make the george washington bridge look like small potatoes and theyre all over the place we have all the cards but we dont how use them we dont even know that we have cards because our leaders dont understand game we could turn off that spigot by charging them tax until they behave properly now theyre going militarily theyre building a military island in middle of the south china sea military island now our country could never do that because we have to get environmental clearance and environmentalists would let country we would never build in an ocean they built about one year this massive military port theyre building up their military to point that is very scary you have problem with isis have bigger problem with china and my opinion the new china believe not terms of trade is mexico so this man tells me about the manufacturing say thats terrible story i hate hear but have another one ford so mexico takes company car company that was going to build in tennessee rips it out everybody thought deal was dead reported in wall street journal recently everybody thought was done deal its going in and thats going be it going into tennessee great state great people all sudden at last moment this big car manufacturer foreign announces theyre not going to tennessee theyre going spend billion dollars in mexico instead not good now ford announces few weeks ago that ford is going to build a two point five billion dollar car and truck and parts manufacturing plant in mexico two point five billion going be one largest world ford good company so i announced that im running for president i would one of the early things i would do probably before even got in and wouldnt even use you know i have i know the smartest negotiators in world i know the good ones know the bad ones i know the overrated ones got lot of that overrated not good they think they are they get good stories because newspapers get buffaloed but theyre not good but i know the best negotiators in world and put them one for each country believe me folks we will do very very well very very well but i would even waste my time with this one i would call up head of ford i know if i was present at say congradulations i understand that youre building nice point five billion dollar car factory in mexico and that gotta take you cars and sounded united states zero tax just across the board and you say yourself how does that help us write and opens wheres good its not so say congratulations thats good news let give the bad news every car and every truck and every part manufactured in this plant that comes across the border what they charge you a thirty five percent tax okay and that tax is going to be paid simultaneously with the transaction and thats it now heres whats going happen if its not me in position its one these politicians that were running against you know the four hundred people that were already and heres whats going happen theyre not so stupid they know its not good thing and they may even be upset by but then they go to get call from the donors or probably from lobbyist for ford say you cant do that to ford because ford takes care of me and i take care of you and you cant do that to ford and guess what no problem theyre going build mexico they going take away thousands of jobs its very bad for us so under president trump heres what would happen the head of ford will call me back i would say within an hour after told them the bad news but it could be one cool anyway till the next day you know they want little cool i dont say please please please hell beg for little while and ill say no interest thatll call all sorts political people and ill say sorry fellas no interest because dont need anybodys money is nice dont need anybodys money im using my own money im not using lobbyists im not using donors dont care im really rich assure that us and by the way im not even saying that in braggart thats the kind of mindset thats kind of thinking you need for this country south because can make country rich it sounds crass somebody should know thats crass not press we got eighteen trillion in debt we got nothing but problems we got military that needs equipment all over the place we got nuclear weapons that obsolete weve got nothing we got social security thats going be destroyed if somebody like me doesnt bring money into country all these other people want cut hell out of it im not going cut it all im going bring money in and were gonna save but heres whats going happen after im called by thirty friends mine contributed to different campaigns after im called by all of special interests and by the the donors and by the lobbyists and have zero chance at convincing me zero i get call the next day from head ford the say please reconsider ill say no hell say mr president weve decided to move the plant back to united states were not going build they have no choice they have no choice there hundreds of things like that ill give another example saudi arabia they make a billion dollars a day a billion dollars day i love the saudis many here this building they make billion dollars day whenever they have problems we send over the ships we send where going protect what we doing but enough about money if the right person asked them they pay fortune they wouldnt be there except for us and believe me you look at the border with yemen you remember obama year ago yemen was great victory address two weeks later the place was blown up everybody got and kept our equipment always keep our equipment we so used equipment right keep our equipment we got sense of real junk because frankly it would be where send our surplus were always losing this gorgeous brand stuff but look at that border with saudi arabia do you really think that these people are interested in yemen saudi arabia without us is gone dagon and im the one that made all right predictions about iraq you know all these politicians that im running against now like its so nice to say im running as to if i run if i run out running but all of these politicians that im running against now theyre trying to disassociate me you looked at bush took him five days to answer question on iraqi coolness question no said is he intelligent that looked rubio he was unable to answer question is iraq good thing bad thing you know you can answer question how these people going lead us how we get it how we going go back in make it great again we can they dont have clue they cant leave us they cant they cant even answer simple questions it was terrible but saudi arabia is in big big trouble now thanks to fracking and other things the oil is all over place and used to say it there ships and stay on this was during the worst crisis that were loaded up with oil and cartel kept pressure because again they were smarter than our leaders they were smarter than leaders there is so much wealth out there they can make our country so rich again and therefore make it great again because we need money with dying with dying we need money we have to do it we need the right people so ford will come back theyll all come back and will say this this is going to be an election in my opinion thats based on competence somebody said thank you somebody said to me the other day reporter very nice reporter but mr trump youre not nice person thats true but actually i am i think i am nice person people that know me like me does my family like me think its alright with my family proud my family by the way speaking my family maloney ask baron tom i donnie don vanessa tiffany ivanka did great job that you do great job great jaron lara and eric im very proud my family theyre great family so the reporter said to me the other day but mr trump youre not nice person how can you get people to vote for you said dont know said i think that number one i am nice present give lot money away charities and other things i think im actually a very nice person but said this is going to be an election thats based on competence because people tired these nice people and theyre tired being ripped off by everybody in the world and theyre tired of spending more money on education than any nation the world per capita then any nation in world and would twenty six in world twenty five countries are better than us in education and some of them like third world countries but were becoming third world country because of our infrastructure our airports our roads everything so one of the things i did and said know what ill do ill do because lot people said hell never run number one wont want give up his lifestyle right about that but doing it number two im private company so nobody knows what im worth and one thing is that when you run you have to announce certify to all sorts of governmental authorities your net worth so said thats okay im proud of my net worth ive done amazing job i started off thank you i started off in small office with my father in brooklyn and queens and father said and love my father i learned so much was great negotiator i learned so much is sitting at his feet playing with blocks listening to him negotiate with subcontractors but learned lot but hes say donald dont go into manhattan thats the big leagues we dont know anything about that dont do as dad gotta go numb and have i got bill those big buildings gotta do it dad ive got do it and have for five years in brooklyn i ventured into manhattan and did lot great deals grand hyatt hotel i was responsible for convention center on west side did lot great deals and didnt early and young and now im building all over world and love what im doing but they all said lot of the pundits on television well donald will never run and one main reasons is hes private and hes probably not as successful as everybody thinks so said myself you know nobodys ever going know unless run because im really proud my success i really yeah i employed ive employed tens of thousands people over my lifetime that means medical that means education that means every so large accounting firm and my accountants have been working for months because its big and complex and they put together a statement financial state this summary but everything will be filed eventually with the government and we dont need extensions anything will be filing it right on we dont need any and it was even reported incorrectly yesterday because they said he had assets of nine billion so not as wrong number thats the wrong number not assets so they put together this and before say and have to say this i made deal fashion which real estate you know its realistic its labor and its unions good and some bad and lots of people that arent in unions and all over place and building all over the world and i have assets big accounting firm one most highly respected nine billion two hundred and forty million dollars and i have liabilities of about five hundred thats long term debt very low interest rates back one big banks came said donald you dont have enough borrowings could we loan you four billion dollars us and dont need it dont want it and id been there dont want it but in two seconds they give me whatever wanted so have a total net worth and now with the increase itll be well over ten billion dollars but here a total net worth of eight billion net worth not assets not liability net worth after all debt after all expenses the greatest assets trump tower twelve ninety avenue americas bank america building in san francisco forty wall street sometimes referred to as the trump building right opposite the new york so many other places all over world so the total is eight billion seven hundred thirty seven million five hundred forty thousand dollars now im not doing that im not doing that to brag because you know what i had break dont believe not im doing that to say that thats the kind of thinking our country needs we need that thinking we have the opposite thinking we have losers we have losers we have people that dont have it we have people that morally corrupt we have people that selling this country down the drain so put together the statement and the only reason im telling you about it today is because we really do get going because if we have another three four years you know where eighteen trillion now was soon going be at twenty trillion according to the economists who im not big believers in but nevertheless this what theyre saying that twenty four trillion were very close thats the point of no return twenty four trillion dollars we will be there soon thats when we become greece thats when we become country thats unsalvageable and were going be there very soon were gonna be there very soon so just sum up i would do various things very quickly i would repeal and replace the big lie obamacare i would build a great wall and nobody builds walls better than me believe me and build up very inexpensively i will build a great great wall on our southern border and will have mexico pay for that wall mark my words nobody would be tougher on isis than donald trump nobody i will find within our military i will find the general patton or i will find general macarthur i will find the right guy i will find guy thats going to take that military and make it really work nobody nobody will be pushing us around i will stop iran from getting nuclear weapons and we wont be using man like secretary kerry that has absolutely no concept of negotiation whos making horrible and laughable deal whos just being tapped along as they make weapons right now and then goes into bicycle race at seventy two years old and falls and breaks his leg i will be doing that and promise will never be in bicycle race that can tell you i will immediately terminate president obamas illegal executive order on immigration immediately fully support and back up the second amendment now its very interesting today i heard it through stupidity in a very very hard core prison interestingly named clinton two vicious murderers two vicious people escaped and nobody knows where they are and woman was on television this morning and she said you know mr trump she was telling other people i actually called but you said know mr trump i always was against guns i didnt want guns and now since this happened its up in the prison area my husband and i are finally agreement because he wanted kinds we now have gun on every table were ready to start shooting i said very interesting so protect the second amendment and and common core common core should it is disaster bush is totally in favor of common core i dont see how you can possibly get the nomination hes weak on immigration hes in favor of common core how hell can you vote for this guy you just cant do we have to end education has to be local rebuild the countrys infrastructure nobody can do that like me believe me it will be done on time on budget way below cost way below what anyone ever thought i look at these roads being built all over country and say i can build those things for one third what they do is unbelievable how bad you what building on pennsylvania avenue the old post office were converting it into one worlds great hotels can be the best hotel watching see we got it from the general services administration in washington the obama administration we got it it was the most highly sought after or one them but think the most highly sought after project in history of general services we got people shocked trump got why god if two reasons number one were really good number two we had really good plan and ill add in third we had great financial statement because the general services who terrific people by the way and talented people they wanted to do a great job and want make sure got built so we have to rebuild our infrastructure our bridges our roadways our airports come into la guardia airport its like were third world country you look at patches in the the forty year old floor they throw down asphalt and they throw you look at these airports we are like third world country and i come in from china and come in from qatar and come in from different places and have most incredible airports world you come back to this country and you have la acts disaster you have all of these disasters airports we have rebuild our infrastructure save medicare medicaid and social security without cuts have to do it get rid of the fraud get wind of the room waste and abuse but save it people have been paying in for years and now many these candidates want cut it you save it by making the united states by making us rich again by taking back all of the money thats being lost renegotiate our foreign trade deals reduce our eighteen trillion in debt because believe me were bubble we have artificially low interest rates we have stock market that frankly has been good to me but still hate to see whats happening we have stock market that is so bloated be careful of bubble because what youve seen past might be small potatoes compared what happens so be very very careful and strengthen our military and take care of our vets so so import sadly the american dream is that but if i get elected president i will bring it back bigger and better and stronger then ever before and we will make america great again thank you thank very much thank
