This is a raw, automatic transcript of Trump's speech in South Carolina. This speech is available on C-SPAN, and on Rumble, below, but it's banned from Big Tech platforms. I can't find a better transcript elsewhere, so this is being provided as a public service.
He mentions the horrifying crisis at the border repeatedly, but has not said anything about legal immigration. That means, as Peter Brimelow pointed out to me, that he's not projecting the level of immigration patriotism he did in 2015, when he definitely won. See my 2015 post Trump Posts Immigration Plan, Neocons Go A Little Crazy.
Below, I've boldfaced the references to the border, so you see what I mean.
President Donald J. Trump in Florence, SC, March 10, 2022
Wow what a crowd. This is It's freezing out here. It's freezing out here. But we're gonna warm it up. We're gonna warm it up. Hello South Carolina. What a place, what a victory, we…nobody told me it was so cold in South Carolina. I always think of warm, beautiful sun. But this is going to keep us awake. This keeps us awake. I want to thank everybody for being here. It's incredible.
I heard you went through rainstorms and everything else and you're freezing your asses off and this crowd is unbelievable. Thank you. Thank you.
You know, I just wish the fake news would take those cameras—look at all of that—just show the crowd. They never do it. They never do it. They don't like to do it.
This is really amazing. It's great to be back in this beautiful state. I love this state. We had a big victory. And we actually had an honest vote count. Isn't that nice? We had an honest vote count with 1000s of proud, hardworking American patriots.
That's what you are. Eight months from now, the people of South Carolina are going to vote to fire the radical Democrats. You're going to elect an incredible slate of true America. First Republicans.
You're going to reelect your Governor Henry McMaster. And together we're going to end Nancy Pelosi’ political career once and for all.
The past year, we've watched in horror as everything Joe Biden touches turns into a calamity and a total disaster. It's one train wreck after another
He abolished our southern border. Have you ever seen anything like it? Millions and millions of people, many of them from jails from other countries are being dumped into our country. He invited them in here then he does nothing about it.
He triggered massive inflation. There were more COVID deaths in 2021 than all of 2020 and hospitalization shattered every record even while Biden imposed illegal mandates all over the place. He ordered the Department of Justice to spy on patriotic parents, he crippled American energy. He disgraced our nation with his humiliating surrender in Afghanistan.
There's never been a lower point in the history of our country. There's never been a lower point in the history of our country, dead soldiers, left our people behind. $85 billion worth of equipment left behind. Who would even believe a thing like that could happen?
And we went 18 months not one American soldier was killed. I told that to the head of the Taliban: “Abdul don't do it. Don't even think about doing it.”
18 months we went, I told it much tougher the depth, but I don't want to drive people crazy that I don't want to drive the fake news crazy. But we set it at a strong tone. And we went 18 months—think of it—18 months not one soldier killed and when you just thought it couldn't get worse any worse, then that. I think that was frankly, the lowest point in the history of our country.
In my opinion, Joe Biden failed to deter Russia's outrageous invasion of Ukraine. You could take the five worst presidents in American history and put them together and they would not have done the damage Joe Biden is done in just 13 months. We have a president representing our country at the most important time in history, who is physically and mentally challenged.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine is a terrible atrocity that would never have been allowed to happen, it would have never happened. I know I speak for everyone here tonight. When I say we are praying for the proud people of Ukraine, they are going through hell. They are fighters and God bless them all.
Make no mistake, however, that Russia would not have dared to annex one inch of territory if I was in the White House. In fact, they never did it when I was there. A lot of people ask the question, How come they never did it when Trump was president and China? He said they knew better.
So what a nice crowd Look at that. Beautiful, beautiful. In fact, I stand as the only president of the 21st century, on his watch. Russia did not invade another country, and neither did anyone else. They knew under our administration, we had peace through strength. That's what it was. Our country was safe.
And the world was calm because America was strong. And they respected your leadership. And America was always a place that I put first. And I put it before everybody else. It was always America first. Very simple, very simple. is all about America First. It was also about Make America Great Again, but it was about America First, because that's how you make it great.
We rebuilt the US military with $2.5 trillion that was spent—the largest number ever spent. We had fighter jets that were 40 years old. We had all the equipment, broken equipment, everything is brand new, beautiful, and I hate to do it, and I hate to tell you, but our nuclear weapons—I rebuilt them. And we have brand new and I hate to even mention it because the last thing we ever want to use is nuclear weapons. But nobody has what we've built. And our President always says but Russia is a nuclear power. But so are we. He never says that. He never says that. And you never want to use it.
But the way you don't use it is by letting everyone know that we have it bigger and better, stronger than they do. We obliterated the senior ranks of al Qaeda. We decimated ISIS. We got rid of ISIS 100%. We killed Al Baghdadi, the head of ISIS. And we terminated Qasem Soleimani. He was responsible for all of those bombs that go off in the road and destroy our people and other people and blow everybody to pieces losing their legs and losing their arms and losing everything they have. He was responsible for that.
We stood up to China and Iran like never before. China paid us hundreds of billions of dollars in taxes and tariffs while I was president. Before I was president. They never paid us 10 cents. And Iran was ready to make a deal. They were done. They had nothing they were ready to make a deal. If the election weren't rigged, we would have had a deal within two weeks of the election.
We made clear that any though we made clear we had to make it clear that any adversary with threaten our people did so at their own peril. And, interestingly, we built such a strong military. We had such great people, such great people. You know, we have great generals when I knocked out ISIS and other things that we did. Remember, we took the shot.
When President Obama said Don't ever go across the red line when they went across the red line, nothing happened. But when I got in, something happened 59 missiles shot right down their throat in Syria. And the Russians were frightened next door in their barracks says they sort of started running pretty fast 59 missiles your room.
But then I was having dinner with President Xi of China. And I said, President, I'd like to tell you yourself thing, what is it? What is it? And through his interpreter, he didn't speak English. I didn't think he spoke English at all. It's a story. I think I've never told a big crowd like this, but I didn't think he spoke English because he wouldn't even say hello, we had a very good relationship until COVID. And then I said, forget it. COVID That was a step too far.
But we did. We respected each other. We respected each other. But I said President we were eating chocolate cake at Mar a Lago was beautiful chocolate cake. And they were very close in some form to Syria. I said President it later tonight, I want to let you know something. I have to tell you, not that you go back to your beautiful room and say, he never even told me that. We just shot 59 missiles into Syria. And he said, without his interpreter repeat. I said he just said repeat. I didn't think he spoke English. These are very smart people we're dealing with, you know. We have somebody that's not at the top of his game never was actually. And these people are at the top of their game. But he said. repeat. I said you got to be kidding. So he knew everything we were saying so don't talk behind their back.
Under my leadership, America was feared by our enemies. And we were respected by all the fake news. They are fake. The Fake News said….
You know, when I first started in politics have to say that they had a very high approval ratings. Now they have an approval rating that's lower than Congress.
So we got the point across the fake news said, my personality would get us into a war. I'm telling you, that guy's gonna get us into a war. But actually, my personality is what kept us out of war. I was the only president in nearly four decades who did not get America into any new conflicts. Instead, I brought our troops and our wonderful children back home, my brother and back home where they belong.
Under Joe Biden, America's neither feared nor respected. There has never been a time where our country has been treated the way it is right now. Other countries are lecturing us and telling us what to do. And that's why we are seeing chaos and mayhem and bloodshed all over the world. Never been a time like it. Meanwhile, you have warmongers like this crazy Liz Cheney. She's a nutjob. And Adam, Adam Kinzinger, you ever see him he gets on television, he cries all the time, he starts crying. I don't know, Governor is that an actor? Is he serious? He's crying all the time. We call him crying Adam Kinzinger.
And the other Neo cons who have never found a war that they did not want. And by the way, we got everything we wanted. We didn't have to go to war.
They don't mind our soldiers and other people in other soldiers from other countries dying. They don't think about that in the name of democracy. They destroyed Syria, Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan—I brought our soldiers back home—leaving a trail of devastation and suffering. Rarely has the world seen anything like it.
And remember that with Ukraine, I sent the Javelins that you see are so effective against the tanks. Biden didn't and in fact, he ended our last order. Probably it'll get there because everyone realized it was the right thing to do. And Obama (remember Obama?) and Biden, they sent blankets I sent Javelins, and they said, Well, you know, the Javelins or the anti-tank weapons say knock the hell out of those tanks. And Ukraine wouldn't be having a chance without and that was all sent by me all of it. We sent other military equipment, we didn't send our soldiers, but we sent them a lot of equipment.
While we need to help stop this brutal invasion, we also have to clean out the rot of our failed foreign policy Establishment, it is indeed rotten to the core, before these total lunatics lead us down the path of national ruin and World War Three, they will do it too. We have to continue to drain the swamp we did a lot of it. But the swamp was deep deeper than anybody believe.
Despite all of Biden's weakness, cowardice and incompetence, there is still a path for him to end this tragedy in Ukraine, without getting American snared in a gruesome and very bloody, war, bloody war. This could lead, by the way, this could lead to World War III.
I see what's happening. Because if you think Putin is gonna stop, it's going to get worse and worse, he's not going to accept it. And we don't have anybody to talk to him.
You had somebody to talk to him with me. Nobody was ever tougher on Russia than me. I'm the one that stopped the pipeline. I haven't stopped. I'm the one that put all the sanctions on. And I'm the one that he didn't attack during our administration. Everyone's asking about that. Now, even the radical left reporters up there, the US must make clear to Putin that he has two choices to negotiate peace right now, or else face blistering consequences, including a push to permanently eliminate dependence on Russian energy and we're talking about for ever or for a long, long time, because without the money coming in from energy, Russia doesn't work. But to make this threat credible, the US would have to immediately end Biden's ridiculous war on American energy. We were energy independent. It's very simple. We have to get our great energy workers drilling, pumping, producing, mining and refining like never before we have to do that. Some of them are sitting right back here it's a nice looking group, you know, they all become famous.
Here's the thing. You have a better location. But they're going to become famous. You know why? They're on television. You have a better location but they're going to become famous and walk away because those faces beautiful faces are all on television. Thank you but it is still I tell you, you know, over the years, we've been a lot of speeches. And we always have the biggest guys that by the way, the biggest crowds ever no politician. Nobody's ever.
You know what, honestly, Elvis doesn't beat us. We break Elvis's records. We were in Texas, two weeks ago in Texas at 7000 People at the State Fair. At 7000, they turned away 50,000 people and the head of the fair and old guy wonderful guy came up to me said you know, sir, I never thought I said what? You broke Elvis Presley's record.
And I said, You know what I said to him? Yeah. And I didn't have a guitar. I'm just up here by myself.
But it's true. So these people in back so sometimes I'll be making a speech. And I'll go home, and I'll check it out on television, because I'll say like, I wonder how it looks. And there'll be somebody in the audience behind us that so stunning, that so handsome or beautiful, handsome or beautiful that you cannot take your mind or your eyes off that person. And you know that sometimes Hollywood calls those people. So we've made a lot of really great stars sitting there. We've made never made a star out here. But they've enjoyed the speeches very much.
So just that's the way life works is. Just think of it though, Joe Biden is the president of the most energy rich country on the planet. You are right about that, by the way, sir. Yet because of his party's climate hysteria, what they believe on the climate Biden lockdown American oil and natural gas production. I now Biden is crawling around the globe on his knees begging and pleading for mercy from Saudi Arabia, Iran and Venezuela.
You know what they don't understand. So we all want clean air. We all want all of the things that they talk about the Green New Deal, the woman that thought of the Green New Deal didn't even go to a college to study If she made it up, by the way, it was 12 years, we're down to seven, seven years, the world is going to be destroyed because the oceans are going to rise 1/100 of an inch within the next 300 years, it's going to kill everybody. It's going to create more oceanfront property. That's what it's gonna do. Now, they say over the next 300 years, the oceans will rise about this much. But you know, the real threat we have is the nuclear threat that's going to be the global warming and we can't let that ever happen. The nuclear threat that's the real global warming that nobody ever talks about. The lunatics on the left the global radicals he's a global environmental radicals, they never talk about it to tap into Arabian oil.
Biden is betraying Israel by arranging to sign a new Iran nuclear deal. Remember, I terminated it because it was so pathetic. He gave them billions I gave them hundreds of billions of dollars for nothing, for a bad deal lose a path to nuclear weapons, and the new deal that they're negotiating, and you know, who's negotiating it? China and Russia is representing us. China and Russia. Did you see Kerry the other day on television: here we are everyone's dying for energy. Your prices are going up your fuel tanks are costing you four or five times more than some guy can't get fuel. And he said no, this is a good time to be promoting windmills. This is a good time to be promoting the green agenda. I tell you, what your great governor isn't promoting it, he's promoting inexpensive gasoline for your cars. It expensive gasoline and he's also an environmentalist. I have to tell you, Henry WE LOVE YOU Henry. Henry. I hear you have like no opposition You better not have you better that any Republican that goes after Henry. I'm going after that Republican Okay.
Nobody's so stupid. is also selling out the brave people of Cuba and Venezuela, groveling at the feet of the oil rich and brutal Maduro regime thereafter Maduro and now all of a sudden they say listen, forget that. Forget what we've been saying for the last long time. And the man that gentlemen that preceded him, forget the last 15 years we'd like to buy oil would pay you any price you want. Please, please please sell this oil please sell us tomorrow. We don't have any oil. He must think we are the stupidest people.
You know and his oil is no good. It's very heavy. You got to put it through the wringer to get oil out of it. We have the best oil in the world that sitting right I call it liquid gold. And we don't want to take it from us. You know, it's a big advantage we have over China we have oil that we have natural gas that we have cold that the entire world is laughing at the United States. This is to be the most pathetic spectacle that anyone's seen. Nobody's ever said anything like that. And Elon Musk is a guy that I like and respect a friend of mine. He runs an electric car company is calling for Biden to increase oil and gas production. But Biden won't do it because he does not have the will to stand up to AOC you know, AOC we call is I don't think she ever took a course of the environment. And now she say we got 12 years without to seven. I call it AOC plus three ever see are people Omar, the whole group, AOC plus three. And the radical left under my administration. We had a very different energy policy, America, energy independence and America. Energy dominance. We were dominant. We were dominant. Think of it, a year and a half ago, we were dominant.
The good news is I used to say, four years is a long time now we're down to two and a half years. We have a big election coming up in just a matter of months. It's incredible. I approved the Keystone XL and Dakota Access Pipelines. I withdrew from the one sided Paris Accord, which was another rip off of our country. Don't worry, they're putting it back. I can so the so called Clean Power Plan.
Sounds great, except it's a disaster very expensive for our country doesn't do anything. We unlock the vast lands for energy development. We opened Edward Snowden where is the biggest site anywhere in the world for drilling, probably bigger than Saudi Arabia. Ronald Reagan tried to get it approved. He couldn't everybody tried to get it approved. I got it done. And in one day, Biden had it wiped out this is in Alaska, Lisa Murkowski did a horrible job for the people in Alaska. In in fact, right now I feel I'm in Alaska because it's cold as hell out. Bye Lisa Murkowski is actually not that bad. Lisa Murkowski did a terrible job. But we had Anwar approved probably the biggest drilling site anywhere in the world energy jobs, everything great for Alaska and for our country. And they ended up very quickly and one day in one day, it was gone, the United States became, but we'll get it back. Okay, we're gonna get that back. Okay, we're gonna get it back. We're gonna get it back quickly, the United States became the world's number one energy superpower. We were doing a job like nobody's ever done before a net exporter of energy for the first time in 72 years. You know, the strategic. I don't know if you know, Federal Reserves, you know what it's about? Well, with dumping. Everybody was taken for years. 4050 years, they're taken out of the they caught this strategic reserves. When we had the energy low. Oh, there's my friend. She's so great. She's been with me right from the beginning. You take your time, Chris, you take your time. That's bikers for Trump. Does everyone know Chris bikers? When Chris is there, you're safe, man. But she's been our supporter for a long time. We love her. And thank you very much. Thank you, Chris. Okay, thank you, Chris. You know, the bikers. I don't know what it is with bikers. But I think I had 100% of their vote. And you know, pretty much the same for law enforcement, the military pretty much the same. But we're not go to like, I'd go to places in South Carolina and North Carolina and all over the place, I'd say. I feel very safe would have sometimes 2000 3000. Bikers, and Secret Service and all the law enforcement, there's a shadow of your safety. I say I'm the safest guy in the world right here.
And did rub up those Harley's in Aurora. And the girlfriends on the back. They love that sucker. They loved it. They loved it, any guy went after that guy's girlfriend did number one didn't have a chance. Number two, he would have been in big trouble, right? He would have been in big trouble, but they were great. The bikers for Trump, we love them. And they are tremendous people. You know, they're really patriots, they love our country, the Biden energy crisis, and the Ukraine crisis are glaring reminders that America cannot be strong abroad. If we are not first strong at home, and we are not strong at home. It's time to stop the bloodshed in our own cities. Look at what's going on in Chicago and New York and Los Angeles and Portland. I mean, Portland, they've taken over the place the whole it's ridiculous what's going on in Portland, but many other all Democrat run cities, all of them, all of them. You see some of these stats in Chicago, where eight people were shot this weekend and four died. And many more than that, and many worse sets in that. It's time to defend our own borders. And I'll tell you one thing, Henry McMaster, he doesn't have a people shot and people dying every weekend. It's time to protect our own sovereignty, it's time to secure our own elections. It's time to by the way, it took me two and a half years to get through all the litigation and lawsuits on the border wall. And I won, I won 11 cases, and we want other and we had it done.
Three weeks away from finishing it, then we had the election result that everybody or most people know was a fake result, just like a fake news. And three weeks, but we did a tremendous job with the border wall and escape can be finished immediately. And that's when I knew that they actually wanted open borders when they didn't want to go that extra three weeks to finish the wall. But it had a tremendous impact. We had the safest border in the history of our country, one year ago. And today we have the worst border in the history of our country. So it's time to save our own nation from the people who are trying to destroy it. Under Biden, Pelosi and the radical Democrats. We're losing our country no different than if we had lost it in a war. If we had lost it at a war, you know, we have hundreds of 1000s of people dying to drugs that come over the southern border now, we did a tremendous job on the southern border. We had the best numbers we've ever had. And we've had the best drug numbers we stopped drugs at a level that nobody had ever seen before. And now they're coming in at a level that nobody has ever seen when you have open borders. Nobody's ever seen anything like it before millions of illegal aliens rushing across our borders from all over the world, criminals, gang members, drug traffickers, human smugglers and people on terrorist watch lists are stampeding right into our country. The Biden administration has spent months and months obsessing over how to stop an invasion of a foreign country. I believe Americans deserve a president who will stop the invasion into our country.
And for all the talk about violent conflict in Eastern Europe, and it's a terrible thing, and we're gonna help and we're going to do whatever we can, because nobody could look at the bloodshed much longer what's happening. It's a lack of respect for a lot of people, a lot of things, but it's just a total lack of respect. And it happens to be a man that is just driven. He's driven to put it together and you look at it, and it's just so ridiculous and so senseless and so horrible. And I say it again, and I'll say that again, and again, it should have never happened. If he respected our president, it would have never ever happened, but no one ever mentions the bloody and horrific war raging just across our border. They don't mention that the drug wars have killed hundreds of 1000s of people throughout Latin America, and hundreds of 1000s of people in our country, massacring innocent people, murdering judges and journalists torturing and slaughtering hostages and burying victims in mass graves mass graves. Now Joe Biden is thrown the gates open to these murderers cartels and thugs and bloodthirsty criminal gangs to flood into our country every day, the radical Democrats, open border policies or getting innocent Americans killed.
We have Brandon Judd, here is an incredible guy and Tom Allman, who's an incredible Tom home and his central casting. That's the kind of guy they don't want to see. They don't want to see Brandon Judd was Brendan and Jett. What a job he does hit a border patrol. The water job you do. And your people at ICE are incredible. These are brilliant, brave patriots. I wouldn't want their job, Brandon, I wouldn't want your job. You know, ice will go into a pack Ms. 13. Probably the worst gangs are Ms. 13. But ice will go up to them. They break into our country. And they'll charge them they kill people. They like using knives rather than guns because it's more painful. They actually use knives to cut people up. Because it's more painful ice goes in there. Then they just attack them. And they take them away and they bring them out. They dump them the hell out of our country. And the other countries from where they came. They now take them they didn't use to take them. I said why are they taking them? They said Sir, they just won't take them back. They don't want them to take them back. I said how much money does the United States give to those countries? And they said, Sir, about $742 million. Okay, stop it. As of now we give no money. The next day, I got a call from the president of those countries. Sir, we'd love to have our members of Ms. 13 back in our country. took about two minutes. But this was going on for years. They wouldn't take them back. Now. They take them back. But I think that's going to be lost probably probably by now branded that's gone down the tubes just like everything else. We got down the tubes. Just last month, an illegal alien criminal was arrested in California, good old California for horribly assaulting an officer.
But under California is deadly sanctuary state law, the vicious criminal was released back into the community. Just five days later, he walked into a church and savagely murdered his 9,10 and 13 year old daughters and other people that happen to be in the church. We have dozens of countries emptying out their prisons into America were like a dumping ground for prisoners. And we're going to be living with this for many years to come. Remember what I said, including those flights from out of Afghanistan where people bum rush the plane, and 97% of those people should not have been brought into our country. We're going to be paying a big price. From what we took out and from the people that pour into our country for many years to come. You watch and I made a lot of good predictions and now saying Trump was right. I was right on the border. I was right on the pipeline. I was right on Germany. I said to Angela Merkel, I said Angola. I'm sending you the white flag. She said but why are you sending me the white flag I said it's called the flag of surrender. because you're getting your energy from Russia, and it's not good. Now, nobody knew it would happen this quickly. But who would have thought to think that I shut the pipeline down and they opened it up immediately. It's just unthinkable. The open border left has turned our country into one giant sanctuary for dangerous criminal aliens. In the Republican Party, we believe that every inch of our country should be a sanctuary for law abiding Americans, not for criminals.
If you want chaos, if you want crime, if you want carnage, you must immediately vote for radical Democrats because they will give it to you. That's what they're doing. Look at every city that's run by the Democrats if you want safety, security and strength, vote for America first Republicans this November. But before we can defeat the Democrats, socialists and communists at the ballot boxes for we first have to defeat the rhinos and grand standards in the primaries earlier this year. The rhinos, those rhinos, and no good. I don't know in many ways, they're just as bad as the Democrats and sometimes worse. We got plenty of rhinos in the party, but I must say far fewer that we had four or five years ago. Unfortunately for the patriots of South Carolina, you currently have two atrocious rhinos that bad people in the house, who went to Washington, sold you out and partnered with the Democrats to stamp the Republican Party and frankly, to stamp our country in the back right here in the seventh congressional district. Tom Bryce a disaster He's respected by no one he's laughed at in Washington. He was never thought highly of in Washington. And he was just censured by your great South Carolina GOP. Tom Reiss joined the Democrats deranged impeachment witch hunt hoax, it's all turned out to be a hoax. It's all turned out now to be a hoax. He parroted their lies he gave aid and comfort to their weaponization of the national security state. Against the domestic political opponents, he voted for the unselect committee of highly partisan politicians that are running this horrible witch hunt in Washington.
It's a witch hunt, like nobody's ever seen before. But for me, it's okay because it's just a continuation of the fake witch hunt that's gone on for four years. And now Tom rice looks like a total fool. He said, I didn't know what I voted to impeach President Trump. I was committing political suicide. And you know, that's exactly what happened. And hopefully it'll be true. In the first congressional district you have another horrendous Rhino known as crazy Nancy Mace. Two years ago, she begged for my endorsement that I pledged and she pledged to be America first all the way she's got to be. I've got to be America first. Instead, the first thing Nancy Mays did when she got to Washington was start attacking Republicans and hold a fundraiser for wacky Liz Cheney, Liz JD to know that really, Liz Cheney, who's polling now at 12%. In the Great State of Wyoming, which was actually my number one state does anyone know that I get number one state was Wyoming in terms of the vote. I hate to tell you South Carolina but I did damn well with you too. And Alabama. In a sort of interesting, we won South Carolina in a record. We won Alabama in our record. But we lost Georgia just by a whisker. Does it happen that way?
It doesn't happen when we win Alabama Henry. And when you in South Carolina Henry, you enjoyed your by a lot. Also Henry JD joined the phony narrative about January 6, he voted to hold Steve Bannon in contempt, which was terrible. She's totally manipulated by raging never Trumpers and the radical left Democrats that are poisoning our country. She's a terrible person. And she has no idea what she's doing. Nancy mace right after hearing I was going to endorse a really wonderful person a different candidate. She went to New York and sit in front of the magnificent Trump Towers anyone ever At a Trump Tower and did a commercial insinuating that I was endorsing as he's standing over in front of Trump Tower in New York. I'm saying can you believe this? It was untruthful just like everything else he does. Thankfully, this June you have the chance to dump these grandstanding losers and replace them with to rock solid. America first champions, Russell Frey Russell is Russell Russell Frey. And Katie Arrington, where are you? Come on up, come
come up. Russell is a conservative warrior who will give no quarter to the socialist left. Likewise, Katie Arrington is a fighter for the people of South Carolina. And you know a few years ago she beat Mr. Argentina you know that is a like that Argentina dancer remember your? You remember that mister Argentina. But Katie, you know, she went through a lot because she was she did a fantastic ran a fantastic race. And she was horribly horribly injured in an automobile accident. And she never had the chance to campaign and it was just incredible, because she was incredible. And but she was so badly injured. And now she's 100%. But that was a that was a tough time. Yeah. That was a tough, that was a tough period of time. But she's been fantastic. And she's been loyal and she loves the people of South Carolina, the people of our country. They will be tough on crime, strong on borders, strong on election integrity, and they will support our military and our vets and they will never appease the fake news or the radical left. So I want to ask everybody in this incredible state, I love this state. I want them to have the same kind of, I want them to have the same kind of vote that you gave me to get out and vote for Russell Frey and Katie Arrington in the primary on June 14, which is my birthday.

And now we think we're going to be really it's going to be incredible year last week in Texas 33 endorsements, we won 33 races, there are a couple of primers. There are a couple of continuing primers, but they're gonna win. They're way ahead. They're gonna win. So we view it as 33 out of 33 and I just got a 98% approval rating in the Republican Party. That's pretty cool. So we got to get out and vote for those two. We got to put Nancy Mason we got to put Tom rice back where they came from. We're also joined by other great Republican leaders tonight, including your incredible governor and my friend. He was so loyal to me.

Lou Holtz, Where's where's I already introduced Chris Cox of bikers for Trump and bikers of every bikers spirit, just bikers. With the help of everyone here tonight, Republicans are going to take back control of Congress, and then we must quickly put our big and bold agenda into action. One of the most important lessons of the past two years is that to be a strong nation, America must also be a manufacturing nation, we have to bring back our manufacturer, we cannot count on China or any other country to give us our critical products, and we cannot have our vital supply chains. Whoever heard of this, you can't get anything. The stores are half empty. We have a supply chain. Nobody ever even talked about this. And this all came out of the stench of the Biden administration stretches all over the globe. under a Republican Congress, we should pass historic legislation and powerful tariffs to bring our essential industries back home to America and back to South Carolina, where they belong. Another top priority will we take back Congress should be will be to pass a bill terminating every last federal COVID mandate. And then day one, we should force the Pentagon to rehire all the great service members Biden force out of the military with his lawless vaccine mandates, with an apology and all back pay.
In addition, a Republican Congress must stand up for parental rights and parental power. America's moms and dads should get a veto over everyone anything teaching far left gender ideologies, to their children without parental consent. And we should move quickly to pass the Republican bill to protect women's sports. You see the records that are being broken swimming 38 seconds, you know, isn't a record that said for 11 years, did break it by maybe 1/100 of a second. He broke it by 38 seconds. The best though of the weightlifting records, you know, with one hand on the records routed it's ridiculous. Keep men out of women's sports.
As President I was proud to issue the world's first ban on critical race theory. In September of 2020. Joe Biden rescinded that order but as soon as we retake Congress, Republicans will ban critical race theory once and for all. They will also defund the racist equity mandates across the entire federal government. No more illegal discrimination in anything. Getting critical race theory out of our schools is not just a matter of values, it's also a matter of national survival. We have no choice. The fate of any nation ultimately depends upon the willingness of its citizens to lay down and they must do this lay down their very lives to defend their country. If we allow the Marxists and communists and socialists to teach our children to hate America, there will be no one left to defend our flag or to protect our great country or its freedom. Just days ago, a poll found that if our country was invaded, like Ukraine was invaded, the majority of Democrats stunningly admitted that they would not fight for America. For the same reason, we have to get political correctness out of our military. The woke generals should be fired immediately. We want our generals to think about winning wars, not to teach pronouns. It's also far past time for big tech and to restore look at what big tech is doing, how dishonest they are, how dishonest and corrupt they are. So they are horrible for our country. We have to restore free speech in our country, and we will do it. Just days ago, Google and YouTube censored my podcast with the Nelk Boys after was watched by millions and millions of people a record by many times in just less than 24 hours. They took it down because I told the truth. These are sick people we have to have in our country, freedom of speech. We have to have freedom of speech. If we don't have freedom of speech, we don't have a country any longer. And finally, at all costs, we must defend the sacred integrity of our elections. Just last week.
The special counsel investigating the 2020 election, Wisconsin, the state of Wisconsin, a highly respected former state supreme court justice, a great gentleman announced that $8.8 million Mark Zuckerberg poured into the local elections, quote, facially violates the Wisconsin law prohibiting election bribery. That's a pretty big judge be careful bark. The investigation revealed that 91 nursing homes Tinker that 90 1000s of people in five counties had voter turnout rates of almost 100% Even though many of them were very ill. Some were dying, their family said my mother had never voted. This was just a disgrace what took place in Wisconsin, and it was a bombshell in Wisconsin. In addition to the explosive evidence gathered by true the vote, showing a massive illegal ballot harvesting scheme in Georgia and other swing states, revealing 1000s and 1000s of ballot traffickers. That known as mules they go in they carry ballots every day, there is more overwhelming evidence that the 2020 election and by the way, it's even beyond the standpoint of evidence. There is so much fact it was corrupt. It was fraudulent and loaded up with irregularities. In other words, it was rigged. So I read twice, I won twice. And I did much better the second time than we did the first getting 12 million more votes. And now we may have to run again. At the federal state and local level, Republicans must act to ensure universal voter ID citizenship confirmation. No more dropboxes no more private money pay for so called help with the elections. And we must ensure that every election can be fully and quickly audited. The ultimate goal would be the same day elections. Why can't we have same day elections with mail in ballots only for the military and vote for those people who are very ill and cannot vote in person, same day elections. You can't have elections where ballots are sitting around. They sit around in storage areas for 20 3040 days, Henry, because lots of bad things are happening to them as security guards are not doing the job. Our election was rigged, and we can never let this happen again and we will continue to go forward. But we will also never, ever forget what happened. And we continue to look at this fraud and things are happening on a daily basis like nobody would believe it was a fraudulent election. And the proof is beyond anybody's wildest extra expectation. We are just eight months away from what could be the most important midterm election in American history.
Our country is at stake and we need a landslide so big that the radical Democrats cannot rig or steal the election. Very much like the landslide we had nice swing you have he's gone. Are you a golfer? What's your handicap? That's a nice looking swing. I'm proud of you. Very much like the landslide that we had in your state and South Carolina very much. So to every Patriot here today. I asked you to get ready to work, get ready to fight get ready to win. And we're gonna win like never before. We're going to win like never before. This is the year we are going to take back the House. We are going to take back the Senate and we are going to take back America and in 2024 we are going to take back that beautiful beautiful white house. I wonder who will do that. I wonder I wonder. Together with your help. We will fight for more jobs for American families fair trade for American workers and more South Carolina factories forging more product stamped with that beautiful phrase made in the USA. We will shut down Joe Biden's border disaster we will again in catch and release we will end chain migration and we will end visa lottery and we will get that wall finish so fast your head will spin
we will hold China accountable for unleashing the virus and charge them trillions of dollars for the damage and suffering they have cause we will stop the Biden Crime Wave in our Democrat run set is we will crack down on violent criminals and we will give our police officers law enforcement. We love them our 100% support, we will pass critical reforms making every executive branch employee fireable—fireable by the President of the United States, that Deep State must and will be brought to heel it's already happening. We will protect innocent life.
We will defend our Constitution. And we will defend the Second Amendment, we will proudly upheld the Judeo Christian values and principles of our nation's founding. We will restore patriotic education to our schools, we will teach our children to love their country, honor our history, and to always respect our great American flag. And in conclusion, our MAGA movement is by far the greatest political movement in the history of our country. Together, we are standing up against some of the most sinister forces, entrenched interests and vicious opponents, our people have ever seen. But no matter how big or powerful, these corrupt radicals may be, you must never forget this nation does not belong to them. This nation belongs to you. This is your home. This is your heritage. And our American liberty is your God given right. It was patriots like you who built this country. And it's patriots like you who are going to save our country. This is a very very critical time.
Our country has never been in trouble like it is right now. In a little more than a year they have gone on to almost destroy our country but the key word is almost we're not going to let it happen. And together we will make a more accepted fictional country than ever before. There is no mountain we cannot climb. There is no summit we cannot reach. There is no challenge we cannot meet. There is no victory we cannot have because just like generations before us, American faith is lifting ourselves American pride is beating our hearts and pure unflinching courage is coursing through our veins of beautiful, beautiful, blood, red, white and blue. We will not bend, we will not break, we will not yield we will never give in, we will never give up we will never ever back down. As long as we are confident and united. The tyrants we are fighting, do not stand a chance of winning. Because we are Americans and Americans kneel to God and kneel to God alone.
My fellow citizens, this incredible journey we are on together has only just begun. And it is time to start talking about greatness for our country again, our country will be great. Again, we are one movement. We are one people, one family and one glorious American nation under God. Together, we are unstoppable. Together, we are unbeatable, and together, our ultimate victory is inevitable. And so with the help of everyone here today, and it's such an honor to be with you, even though we're all very cold out here. And with the commitment of hard working freedom loving patriots across this magnificent land, we will make America powerful again. We will make America wealthy again. We will make America stronger again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And we will make America great again. God bless you. Thank you South Carolina. We love you Thank you.
