Donald Trump delivered a passionate speech tonight in Roanoke Virginia defining the anti-establishment movement that empowers the Trump presidential bid:

[Transcript] Thank you. It’s wonderful to be here in Virginia, a state where I have so many great friends and wonderful employees.

Tremendous polls keep coming in. A brand new Rasmussen poll has us up 5 points nationwide.

On November 8th, we are going to win this state and we are going to win the White House.

We are going to take on the big donors, and big business, and big media – we are going to take on the rigged system that has shipped America’s wealth to other countries.

We are going to replace our failed and corrupt establishment with a new government that serves you, your family, and your country.


My economic agenda can be summed up in three very beautiful words: jobs, jobs, jobs.

We will cut taxes for all working and middle-class households in America.

We will reduce regulations, which will put more money into the hands of our poorest workers and bring thousands of new companies to our shores.

We will unleash American energy, creating millions of new jobs and lowering energy costs. The Obama-Clinton energy restrictions are nothing more than a massive tax on the poor – we will remove those restrictions day one.

We will repeal and replace disastrous Obamacare.

President Obama promised his plan would reduce premiums by $2,500 dollars. Instead, they surged $5,000.

Our replacement plan includes expanded access to Healthcare Savings Accounts, with support for those who need it. It includes allowing Americans to buy health insurance across state lines in all 50 states, creating a dynamic and competitive new market – they will be competing for your business.

We’re also going to block grant Medicaid so states can develop innovative solutions to make sure no citizen in poverty ever falls through the cracks. High-risk pools will also help to ensure that those with pre-existing conditions will always get the quality coverage they need.

On trade, we are going to end the international abuse, the foreign cheating, and the one-sided rules that govern NAFTA and the World Trade Organization. Right now, America eliminates its tariffs, but then other countries tax our goods with backdoor tariffs and close their markets.

Our massive, chronic trade deficits are destroying the middle class – and shifting money away from workers to large corporations who have no borders. There’s a reason hedge funds and Wall Street are giving tens of millions to my opponent.

Hillary Clinton is the voice for the global special interests.

I am running to be the voice of the forgotten men and women.

My opponent likes to say that for decades, she has been “fighting for women.” That she has been “fighting for children.”

Why then are 70 million American women and children living in poverty, or on the brink of poverty? Why has she provided no relief for the millions of Americans in search of affordable, reliable quality childcare? You know the old saying, “Watch what I do, not what I say.”

trump-chicks-collageAt the Trump Organization, and in my campaign for President, women occupy some of the highest positions. I have employed thousands of women in my company. Women of different backgrounds. Women of many talents.

And just last week, joined by my daughter, Ivanka, I laid out my plan for childcare and eldercare. That plan has many great features, including tax-free childcare savings accounts. Low-income parents are given tax credits they can put straight into those accounts, and then get a $500 dollar per child match for those savings accounts deposits.

Families can also deduct the cost of childcare from their taxes, a huge tax cut for the middle class.

We have also talked about improving education. My plan includes school choice for every disadvantaged child in America.

We are also going to bring down the cost of college.

Universities get massive federal funds, and huge tax breaks for their endowments – but then they don’t spend those funds or those endowments on their students. I will work with Congress to make sure these special federal benefits are not available unless universities begin to reduce tuition and student debt. This will get to the problem at the source, and reduce both the cost for students and the cost for taxpayers. Our students are drowning and we’re going to fix it.

Women also value security. They want a Commander-in-Chief that will defeat radical Islamic terrorism, stop the massive inflow of refugees, protect our borders, and who will reduce the rising crime and violence in our cities.

As I campaign across this country, I hear so many stories and pleas, from women especially, about drug addiction and opioid use. They are doing their best in their communities and for their families to provide a safe and nurturing environment.

But even the best-laid plans cannot always protect our youth, and increasingly, many adults, from the scourge of drugs. We lose thousands of our fellow Americans every year to opioid use. I will stop the drug inflow from our borders. These drugs come over the border and make their way into our urban and rural communities, and into our suburbs.

This must change. Every change starts with a conversation. Together, we will have this conversation. And we will make this change.

The changes will start immediately.

Here, in Virginia, we are going to end the war on American energy. Hillary Clinton says she wants to put the miners out of work. Clinton and Kaine also want to shut down shale, and shut down natural gas. The Clinton regulatory agenda will drive up electricity prices for Virginia families and will cost the U.S. economy over $5 trillion.

By the way, less than a week after taking office, Tim Kaine proposed a $4 billion dollar tax hike in Virginia, including on people earning as little as $17,000 dollars a year.

We are going to open up all sources of American energy and bring jobs, wealth, and cheaper electricity to Virginia.

Another major part of our agenda is safety.

I believe every family in America is entitled to live in safety and peace.

trump-minority-collage-african-americanToday, the nation just opened the Smithsonian National Museum of African-American History and Culture. We congratulate and honor those involved with the project, and recognize today the incredible contributions of the African-American community to this nation.

African-Americans have given so much to this nation and sacrificed so much for this nation.

Many African-Americans are succeeding so greatly in our country, and I will make sure their success is protected and supported.

At the same time, too many African-Americans have been left behind and trapped in poverty.

I will fight to make sure every single African-American child in this country is fully included in the American Dream.

That includes the new civil rights issue of our time: School Choice.

Democrats have run the inner cities for half a century or more, and produced only more joblessness and poverty.

The jobs are leaving, the schools are failing, and crime is rising.

To those suffering, I say: Vote for Donald Trump. What do you have to lose? I will fix it. I will fight harder for you than anyone has before.

The policies of Hillary Clinton have brought only suffering in our inner cities – just like her bad judgment overseas unleashed suffering everywhere she went.

Of course, she got rich through it all – the Clintons made another $60 million in gross income while she was Secretary of State.

Worst of all, she put her public office up for sale – and then bleached her emails, and destroyed her phones, to try to cover her tracks following a congressional subpoena.

There’s a reason the hedge fund managers are donating to Hillary Clinton’s campaign – and not mine. Everybody getting rich off the rigged system, and who wants nothing to change, are throwing their money at Hillary Clinton.

My campaign is powered by my own money, and by small dollar donations from everyday patriotic citizens.

95% of our donors are small dollar donations. Every dollar helps us deliver your country back to you.

Our campaign is about breaking up the special interest monopoly in Washington, D.C. We’re trying to disrupt the collusion between the wealthy donors, the large corporations, and the media executives. They’re all part of the same political establishment.

They go to the same restaurants, they attend the same conferences, they have the same friends and connections. They all support the same ideology of globalism that makes them rich while shipping your jobs, your factories, and your wealth to other countries.

I am not running to be President of the World. I am running to be President of the United States. I Am For America – and America First.

Together, we will rebuild this country beyond our greatest dreams.

Government will start working again. Fixing things is what I do. Just look at my projects in New York, where I turned rundown spaces into new centers of business, activity and opportunity – where others saw only problems, I saw only potential.

We turned empty lots into homes, offices and living memories for thousands of workers and families.

That’s what I want to do for our country – I want to go into the neglected neighborhoods, the failing schools, the forgotten stretches of this nation, and unlock their potential for all of our people.

I’ve made a living for years looking at unused spaces and imagining what they could be. Politicians look at blighted neighborhoods and offer only excuses – I look at those same neighborhoods and offer solutions.

We spend so much time thinking about how things used to be, we’ve stopped thinking about how great things could be – all we have to do is tune out the doubters, the cynics, and the naysayers.

We are a nation of strivers, dreamers, and believers – and that’s the spirit that will carry us to victory in November, and to great victories as a nation.

It’s that same spirit of resilience I have seen visiting the flood-ravaged towns in Louisiana, or meeting with the incredible but hard-hit people in cities and towns like Flint, Michigan.

It used to be the cars were made in Flint, and you couldn’t drink the water in Mexico. Today, cars are made in Mexico, and you can’t drink the water in Flint. We’ll turn it all around.

But that means you need to show up and vote on November 8th.

You have to knock on doors. You have to pick up that phone. Go to our website to learn more. You have to campaign on the streets. Spread the love that we have in this room to the people of our country. To beat the system, you have to lift your voice, pound the pavement, and get out the vote.

Trump UnitedYou have 44 days until the big vote. You have 44 days to make possible every dream you ever dreamed of for your country.

You have one magnificent chance to deliver justice for every forgotten man, woman, and child in this nation.

The arrogance of Washington, D.C. will soon come face to face with the righteous verdict of the American voter.

This November 8th, we are going to show the whole world that America is Back – Bigger and Better and Stronger than Ever Before.

Here is just some of what will happen starting in January of 2017:

I am going to lower your taxes; eliminate every unnecessary regulation; unleash American energy; end illegal immigration – and yes we will build the wall [Mexico will pay]; save the 2nd amendment, and appoint Justices to the Supreme Court who will uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.

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.

And we will put our great miners and steelworkers back to work.

American hands will rebuild this nation – and American energy, harvested 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 as One American People.

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.

Hillary Clinton has a 3-word campaign pledge. It reads: “I’m With Her.”

I have a different pledge: I’m With You – the American People.

To all of our people, in all of our cities and towns, I say these words to you tonight: I’m with you, I will fight for you, and I will win for you.

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!

    This speech is the best crafted one, delivered with almost no asides or embellishments.

    It touched on women in several topics (Kellyanne’s and Ivanka’s input on topics). And if you look at the rally crowd, it is loaded with women and young ones.

    It was a full frontal assault on the Establishment in all sectors.

    It linked a few times to Clinton, but didn’t emphasize her. She’s becoming irrelevant to his messaging.

    This was a full tour of his mission, his goals and his plans.

    The tone was positive, and the theme was visionary, specifically based on his life’s works as builder, designer and developer. It laid the foundation for jobs, jobs, jobs.

    It was the domestic program. It emphasized inclusion, growth, choice, competition, dynamic capitalism and progress.

    It was the Change Agenda.

    • Yes Bull D I believe we are all starting to leave Hilary behind. Where she belongs.

      We have a lot of work to do and need to focus.

      Make America Great Again.

      Although I must admit I hope Trump has some plans in mind for Hilary.

      Trump/Pence 2016 and Onward!!!!!!!!!


    • George True says:

      B. D., you nailed it. You covered all the bases, I could not have summed it up any better.

      I was extremely suspicious of Kelly Ann Consay at first. Many here, including Sundance, and including me, thought she was a Trojan horse that had been brought into the Trump campaign. It certainly appears at his point that we were wrong.

      I believe Bannon is the one who keeps the red meat coming for those of us who viscerally got Trump’s message from the beginning. And at the same time, Kelly Ann tweaks the message I. Such a way that it resonates with tens of millions of people who do not normally vote Republican.

      The message also has to be crafted in such a way that it gets through or around the MSM firewall. The combination of Conway and Bannon is doing just that. It is an amazing thing to see. I am in awe.


    • Alleycats says:

      I was there. First rally I got the pleasure to attend, and in the city where I grew up, to boot. 🙂 Front row, seated-section immediately to the left of his podium and lectern.
      The energy in that coliseum was phenomenal. You could feel it in your body like a hum.

    I live in Alberta Canada and read Trumps speech sitting by the fire on a cool fall night. When I was done I stared into the fire for a long time then said son get your mother we moving. If only we could.

    If America let’s this chance slip away to become a people who move with a common purpose then the opposite awaits you and the opportunity may not present it self for a long time.

    I hope my Americans friends choose wisely unlike dopey Canada that voted in the seeds of there down fall.

  8. He keeps hitting it out of the park for a grand slam!

    The end of non-competition between state lines for health insurance is a big, big boon for the American people. By the lack of competition it only benefits the top 6 American Health Insurance companies. Now, this gives people a choice that will drop rates and deductibles.

    I love the taking on of universities and their overvalued diplomas. If he can link the proposal to removal of all these cultural Marxist programs and tell them to put in pro-American classes instead would make a huge difference. It would also eliminate worthless degrees like ones in Gender Studies.

    If he can come up with a solid policy regarding lobbyists and cronyism that would further strengthen his position. I can think of one and that is through an amendment that bans lobbyists from existing. It is the only sure fire way to avoid having SCOTUS strike it down. The federal government should be for the people, by the people, and of the people. Removing the lobbyists ensures that these officials work for a single master and that is the people.

    Overall, I’m just totally impressed with the speech and his policies keep getting clearer.

      As we approach the vote, the Trump America and Americans First policy and ideology is being crystalized for the voters. And, yes, for me the transcripts help even though I have heard the pieces in all the Trump rally speeches.

      Globalism, cronyism, corporate and bank, the corruption is top down. The pay to play corruption has gilded the bank accounts of top political hacks and officials as its flip side. Politician mansions are now commonplace. How else does the Crooked Clintons amass a billion as career political hacks? Follow the money.

      Hiding the money is what Islam brings to their banquet table via Sharia banks.

      A wide river needs to be diverted through the corrupt halls of government to flush out decades of Clinton – Bush Global pay to play corporate and bank cronyism.

    His message is getting better, clearer statements, touching on nearly every facet of the American citizen’s life. Hillary offers NOTHING new.
    This one man, and his team are hitting on all cylinders. We all must do our part: vote for him, and encourage others to listen to him, and then vote!

    I am getting old now and never thought I would hear such inspiration and determination from an American politician again in my lifetime.

    My father lived through the same approach pattern upon us today. The great glories of Hilter’s socialism ushered in the devastation of war to his country. He knew well what lied beneath the “Civil Rights” and “Peace” movements of the 60’s. Too young and too cocky, I now wish I had heeded him sooner.

    I feel fortunate to have been born in the immigrant neighborhoods of NY and raised in the deep south. A tiny fraction of my generation was ever been able to see how the racial tensions of the 60’s were kindled and stoked into flames of hatred by the same evil that works today.

    Generations then, could not easily have known that very same forces who created the civil rights “crises” would build their civil rights “solutions” into the power necessary to grind America down.

    My parents’ generation sensed the danger and gave America a great opportunity with Ronald Reagan. But we went back to sleep.

    Since, we have stood by in even greater ignorance, letting them the expand their wealth and power upon self-righteous horses of environmental rights, women’s rights, gay rights, hispanic rights, social justice, fairness, white guilt, multiculturalism , “democracy”, and political correctness.

    Know that evil never sleeps . But now we have this internet! The painful truths are literally at our fingertips. No longer can we stand upon excuses of ignorance.

    What nation could be as fortunate as America to have another chance at this? A leader has stood up to call out each strategy of our enemies within. He has offered to lead us in a fight to take America back. Donald Trump cannot do this on his own. When we put him in charge, he will not stand long if we fall back into the slumber of ignorance.

    Teach your children well.
