6/22/16, "Donald J. Trump on the Stakes of the Election," Text of Donald J. Trump speech in Soho, New York City
Last portion of 40 minute speech:
"On election day, the politicians stand trial before the people. The voters are the jury. Their ballots are the verdict. We don't need or want another Clinton or Obama.
Come November, the American people will have a chance to issue a
verdict on the politicians that have sacrificed their security, betrayed
their prosperity, and sold out their country.
They will have a
chance to vote for a new agenda with big dreams, bold ideas and enormous
possibilities for the American people.
Hillary Clinton's message is old and tired. Her message is that can't change.
My message is that things have to change - and this is our one chance do it. This is our last chance to do it.
Americans are the people that tamed the West, that dug out the Panama
Canal, that sent satellites across the solar system, that built the
great dams, and so much more.
Then we started thinking small. We stopped believing in what America could do, and became reliant on other countries, other people, and other institutions.
We lost our sense of purpose, and daring. But that's not who we are. Come this November, we can bring America back - bigger and better, and stronger than ever.
We will build the greatest infrastructure on the planet earth - the roads and railways and airports of tomorrow.
Our military will have the best technology and finest equipment - we will bring it back all the way.
Massive new factories will come roaring into our country - breathing life and hope into our communities.
Inner cities, which have been horribly abused by Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Party, will finally be rebuilt.
Construction is what I know -- nobody knows it better.
The real wages for our workers have not been raised for 18 years -- but
these wages will start going up, along with the new jobs.
massive taxation, regulation and open borders will destroy jobs and drive down wages for everyone.
We are also going to be supporting our police and law enforcement -- we can never forget the great job they do.
I am also going to appoint great Supreme Court Justices.
Our country is going to start working again. People are going to start working again.
Parents are going to start dreaming big for their children again - including parents in our inner cities.
Americans are going to start believing in the future or our country.
We are going to make America rich again.
We are going to make America safe again.
We are going to make America Great Again - and Great Again For EVERYONE."
