In Colorado, Trump Details Tax Relief For Working And Middle Class Families
Thank you. I am so thrilled to be here in Colorado.
A New Poll from Emerson has just come in, and we’re up 4 points in Colorado. Reuters has us projected to win Florida. And we’re up in many polls nationwide.
We are going to win Colorado, we’re going to win the White House, and we are going to Make America Great Again.
It’s going to be a victory for the people – it’s going to be a victory for YOU.
Starting in 2017, anything we dream of for our country can be achieved. It is time to start thinking and dreaming big – bigger than all the petty politicians trying to hold us back.
Our plan begins with economic prosperity. My economic agenda can be summed up in these three very beautiful words: Jobs, Jobs, Jobs.
We are going to have a massive tax reduction for working and middle class families.
We are going to reduce job-killing regulations and raise your incomes.
We are going to renegotiate our disastrous trade deals.
We are going to repeal and replace Obamacare.
We are going to appoint Supreme Court Justices who will uphold the Constitution of the United States.
We are going to work with law enforcement to stop the surge in violent crime.
We are going to revitalize our crumbling infrastructure.
We are going to provide school choice to every disadvantaged child in America.
We are going to end illegal immigration – and yes, we will build the wall.
We are going to keep terrorists out of our country, and apply new screening standards to admit only those who love our country.
We are going to defeat ISIS and Radical Islamic Terrorism.
We are going to rebuild our badly depleted military, and we are going to remember those three very famous words: Peace Through Strength.
In all things, it’s going to be America First.
In this mission, we are going to campaign in every community in this country.
This is our chance to replace a failed, corrupt and dishonest political establishment with a new government that answers to the citizens – not the special interests.
We can’t keep listening to the same people who created all of our problems in the first place.
That’s why I’m proud to have the endorsement of the people who are actually on the ground and know what needs to be done – not insiders in Washington, D.C.
This week, I was honored to get the endorsement of recipients of the Medal of Honor and many of our amazing military leaders. We now have the endorsements of more than 160 top generals and Admirals.
We also have the support of 16,500 Border Patrol Officers. Earlier today, I had a chance to spend some time with the victims of illegal immigrant violence – these are people from all races and backgrounds. They are all united by one common fact: their government failed them in its most basic duty.
Just yesterday, we received the endorsement of the nations’ largest police union, the Fraternal Order of Police.
Last night in Fort Worth Texas, a newly-commissioned officer in training and his field officer were shot while responding to a possible suicide.
Also, last night in Philadelphia, a 19-year police Veteran was shot eight times. The Police Commissioner said it was a miracle she wasn’t killed. Also, University of Pennsylvania Officer Ed Miller, who formerly served for 33 years on the Philadelphia Police Department, was shot numerous times.
Our prayers are with the victims.
We must stand with our police.
I am so greatly honored to have the support of our law enforcement officers, as well as our men and women in military uniform, and the support of firefighters, paramedics and so many other public servants.
To all of you, I say: I will not let you down.
Our support comes from all regions, all backgrounds and all walks of life. You are bricklayers and homebuilders, doctors and dentists, carpenters and welders, young and old, rich and poor, black, white and Hispanic – but above all else, you are American.
While my opponent slanders you as deplorable and irredeemable, I call you hardworking American patriots who love your family and love your country.
Hillary Clinton’s comments displayed the same sense of arrogance and entitlement that led her to violate federal law as Secretary of State, hide and delete her emails, destroy her phones with a hammer, put classified information in the reach of our enemies, lie to Congress, and sell government favors and access through the Clinton Foundation.
It’s the same attitude of arrogance and entitlement that explains why she has never taken accountability for the disasters she created in the Middle East.
Before Hillary came into office, Libya was stable, Syria was under control, Iraq was seeing a reduction in violence, and Iran was being choked by sanctions. The group we today call ISIS was close to being extinguished.
Now, after Hillary, Libya, Syria and Iraq are in total chaos. Iran is on the path to nuclear weapons. ISIS is spreading everywhere, and launching attacks against the West.
Her judgement on the economy is no better. Hillary’s donors and advisors are the same people who gave us NAFTA, China’s entry into the World Trade Organization, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
Her policies have produced suffering everywhere, but especially in our inner cities.
45% of African-Americans under the age of 6 are living in poverty. 58% of African-American youth are not employed. More than 3,000 people have been shot in the city of Chicago this year alone.
These cities have been run by the policies Hillary Clinton embraces, and if she’s elected, things will just keep getting worse.
Everywhere she goes, scandal and failure follow. Just look at what she did to upstate New York – she promised 200,000 jobs, and they ended up losing jobs. The jobs left.
The only people she delivers for is her donors.
I am going to deliver for you, the American people.
That includes lifting the restrictions on American energy. There’s $50 trillion of untapped energy reserves in our country, and we’re going to unlock that vast potential. This one action alone will raise the quality of life for tens of millions of Americans. We’ll be a rich country again.
I am also going to completely reform our trade deals. Ford just announced they’re moving all of their small car production to Mexico – this won’t happen if I’m elected President.
I have a detailed 7-point plan on my website, which includes protecting our intellectual property – if we just stopped China from stealing our intellectual property that alone would add an estimated 2 million jobs per year.
Right now, our trade deficit in goods with the world is nearly $800 billion dollars annually, and growing. This subtracts from our GDP.
Our economy grew only 1.1% in the last quarter – that’s catastrophic.
This is the weakest so-called recovery since the Great Depression.
Another 14 million people have left the workforce entirely since President Obama came into office.
Another major reform is going to be school choice. I’ve outlined a plan to provide every disadvantaged child in America the freedom to choose the private, public, magnet or religious school of his or her choice.
This will help lift millions of poor African-American and Hispanic children out of poverty.
Since President Obama came into office, another 2 million Hispanic-Americans have fallen into poverty. This is unacceptable. To the Hispanic community I say: we are going to protect your jobs, we are going to build up your schools, and we are going to deliver safety and opportunity for your children.
Earlier this week, I also rolled out a plan to help our mothers and our families get affordable, quality childcare.
A married couple earning $50,000 per year with two children and $8,000 in child care expenses will save 35% from their current tax bill.
A married couple earning $75,000 per year with two children and $10,000 in child care expenses will receive a 30% reduction in their tax bill.
Millions of low-income people will be removed from the tax rolls entirely.
A Trump Administration will deliver every American three things: a great economy, a safe country, and an honest government free from corruption.
I am going to reduce taxes, eliminate regulations, unleash American energy, appoint great judges, save the 2nd amendment, reduce crime, create school choice, end illegal immigration, and renegotiate our terrible trade deals to put American workers first.
We will rebuild our roads, bridges, tunnels, highways, airports, schools and hospitals.
American cars will travel the roads, American planes will soar in the skies, and American ships will patrol the seas.
American steel will send new skyscrapers into the clouds.
American hands will rebuild this nation – and American energy, mined from American sources, will power this nation. American workers will be hired to do the job.
We will put new American steel into the spine of this country.
I will fight for every neglected part of this nation – and I will fight to bring us all together, united in common purpose and common dreams.
Imagine what our country could accomplish if we started working together as One People, under One God, saluting One American Flag.
It is time to break with the bitter failures of the past, and to embrace a new, inclusive and prosperous American future.
Jobs will return, incomes will rise, and new factories will come rushing back to our shores.
Once more, we will have a government of, by and for the people.
We Will Make America Wealthy Again.
We Will Make America Strong Again.
We Will Make America Safe Again.
And We Will Make America Great Again.
Thank you, and God Bless!
