Massive Crowds of Supporters Line Streets to Greet President Trump in Maine – President Trump Remarks During Puritan Medical Products Event…

Crowds of enthusiastic supporters lined the streets cheering as President Trump traveled through Maine to arrive at Puritan Medical Products to deliver a speech thanking the industry and company for their efforts to produce vital medical equipment.

Workers at the event wore white T-shirts with a green logo on the back that read: “Saving The World One Swab At A Time,” as President Trump delivered his remarks. The theme remains “Transition to Greatness.”  [Video Below – Transcript ADDED]

[Transcript] – THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much. Appreciate it. We had some crowd coming in. I don’t know, you have a lot of people up here. A lot more than people think. And they’re great people, and they like Trump — that, I can tell you.

No, we had — (applause) — we had a lot of people. We got off Air Force One, and we came, and the roads were packed. Five deep; ten deep, in some cases. I have to be very careful because I have the fake news back. They’ll say, “It was only two deep.” (Laughter.) “There were some areas where it was only one deep.” And they’ll end up putting me on the front page.

But we had some fantastic crowd, and I just want to thank you all. You’re very special people. And this is a great plant, and it’s doing a phenomenal job. Thank you very much. Appreciate it.

I also want to thank Scott. I’m thrilled to be back in the magnificent state of Maine. As you know, you treated me very nicely in the last election, 2016. You treated me very nicely. I needed the one point. Now I’d like to win the whole state. Could you mind, please? Okay? (Applause.)

Maine and Nebraska — they cut them in half and they say, one way or the other — I don’t know, you have the double. That’s okay. But this one we had tremendous, tremendous turnout, and we did very well in both parts, actually. But it’s a great state. And we just solved a big lobster, fishermen problem. We gave 5,000 acres of water, and we gave you your rights back. (Applause.) It was taken away by the previous administration, and it was disgraceful.

So with a stroke of the pen, your fishermen like me maybe even more than you like me. Okay? It could be — could be. But it was a great thing.

But I just want to say hello to the hardworking men and women of Puritan Medical Products. Great company. The incredible workers of this company have carried on the noble tradition of American manufacturing excellence for more than 100 years. Now our nation has turned to you as we massively increase our unrivaled testing capacity.

We’re at — as an example, 20 million tests. Germany is at 4 million. South Korea, which you heard so much about — they’re doing a good job — they’re at about 3 million. We’re well over 20 million. Very shortly, we’ll be well over 20 million tests.

Remember this: When you have more tests, you have more cases. I say to my people: Every time we test, you find cases because we do more testing. So if we have more cases — if we wanted to do testing in China or in India, or other places, I promise you, there’d be more cases.

But we’re doing a great job with the testing. And you’re doing a fantastic job in getting out the swabs.

On behalf of the entire nation, I want to thank you. You’re building a big addition right alongside. You know that. So you’re going to have a lot more jobs coming here in a very short period of time.

Puritan is one of the only manufacturers in the world producing the high-quality medical swabs that are crucial for the rapid testing, and every swab you make at Puritan is proudly stamped with a beautiful phrase, “Made in the USA.” Do you like that phrase? (Applause.) Beautiful phrase.

Thanks to the testing capacity that you’re making possible, our country is reopening and our economy is recovering like nobody would have thought possible. I guess you all saw the news today, right? It was unbelievable.

Earlier today, it was announced that the U.S. economy added 2.5 million jobs in May. It was supposed to lose 9 million, you know, during this period — transition period. I call it “transition to greatness,” but it’s coming a little earlier than I thought, and that’s okay. I don’t like to be wrong on the other side, but earlier is okay. But it was supposed to be 9 million.

If you watch — I don’t know if anybody watches the business shows, but I’m watching this morning, and they thought it was a typographical error because it was supposed to be nine. And before the show — or during the show, they’re predicting. It comes out, the job numbers — the very famous job numbers — and it comes out, and — 8:30 in the morning, and I’m looking forward to seeing what’s going on. And turn it on, and they’re predicting: “No, I think it’s going to be more than 9 million jobs lost,” during the period prior to going back up. And another one said, “No, 8.5. No, 11. No, 10.” You know, all geniuses. (Laughter.)

And now it’s 8:30, you hear a bell go off, and the woman gets it, in this case, and she’s going, “Well, it’s only 3 million jobs lost.” And then a couple of seconds later, she goes, “Wait a minute, this isn’t jobs lost; this is jobs gained.” And it’s almost 3 million jobs gained. And she thought she had a typographical error, and what happened was incredible. I mean — and the market went through; it finished very, very high — almost, I guess, around 900 points up.

And our stock market is booming, and our jobs are booming. And, you know, you just have to look at a place like this. You just have to get off the plane and ride here, and you see the spirit of Maine and other places — other places. (Applause.) It’s amazing. It’s amazing.

So we absolutely shattered expectations. And this is the largest monthly jobs increase in American history. American — think of that: That’s a long time, right? By far. I think it’s more than double or about double of what our highest was before.

So this is the largest monthly job increase in American history. How about that? And we’re going to have a phenomenal next year. We’re going to have a tremendous couple of months prior to the election, on November 3rd. A very, very important day. It’s going to be a very important election because the only thing that can screw it up is if you get the wrong President and they raise your taxes, and they open up your border so that everybody pours into our country.

COVID or non-COVID — you used to never hear of COVID, but now we have COVID to add to the list of other things. So, we have a wall that’s over 210 miles long already going up. We’ll have 400 miles — (applause) — 400 miles by the end of the year, maybe more than that. And we’ll be finishing it off very early next year with 500 miles of wall in the most treacherous places. And it’s been an amazing thing. We have — we’re setting records on our border right now for — for holding people out. We don’t want people coming in. We want people coming in through a legal process and through merit — and that’s what we’re doing — where they can help our country.

But economists forecast that the unemployment rate, as I said, would be about 19 percent, and they were hoping for 20 percent, the opponents of ours. They’d rather have things be bad so they can try and win an election. So they were hoping it would be 20 percent. Instead, it’s 13 percent. That was good. That — we made up a lot of time, a lot of distance. It’s really great. (Applause.) Even I was surprised by this one. This was better than I thought. I thought it would be okay, but I didn’t know this. It means you were much ahead of schedule. And don’t forget, that doesn’t include New York, New Jersey, and many other states — and, by the way, your state. When are you going to open the state up?

AUDIENCE MEMBER: Open up!

THE PRESIDENT: No, seriously, you’re going to miss your whole — you know, you do 40 million people in tourism, and you have a governor that won’t let you open up. What’s she doing? What’s she doing? I don’t know that much; I just know you’re great people.

You know what I know about Maine? I know you’re great people. But you have — this is like — you know, they say December, for Tiffany’s, that’s their big month, right? This is your time. This is your big month. This is your Christmas, in terms of tourism, your dollars, when you — how can you be closed? I mean — and I see it all the time. Everybody wants to have Maine open, so I figured I might as well say it while I’m up here. You ought to get the state open, Governor. (Applause.) Open the state.

Got a lot of — you have a lot of angry people in Maine about that. I mean, they think — I say, “What are you doing? That’s a strange one.” Some, I understand a little bit more, but this one is not one that should be closed. You’re missing a lot of money and a lot of everything and a lot of people and a lot of spirit. Get it open.

We added 1.2 million leisure and hospitality jobs; 464,000 construction jobs; 424,000 education and healthcare jobs; 368,000 retail jobs. And listen to this one: Remember, the previous administration said, “Oh, there’ll not be any more manufacturing jobs in our country.” I say, “Excuse me?” Two hundred and twenty-five thousand manufacturing jobs, and that’s during a pandemic. (Applause.)

And we had the greatest economy in the history of our country. You know, we had a — an economy, the likes of which we’ve never had. We had almost 160 million, which was the highest number we’ve ever had, by far. African American, Hispanic American, Asian American — the greatest employment and unemployment numbers we’ve ever had.

Greatest stock market numbers. And we’re very close to those numbers, which is pretty amazing. That means that these geniuses on Wall Street, and also a lot of people with 401(k)s — you have 401(k)s?

AUDIENCE: Yeah!

THE PRESIDENT: Oh, you’re going to only vote for Trump, because otherwise, those 401(k)s are going to be worthless. (Laughter.) That’s a big incentive. (Applause.) That’s a big incentive. (Applause.) That’s a big — nah — well, it is. Look, it’s bad things. The only way you’re going to end it is stupid policy, because I built it once, now I’m building it again. We had to close it down. We did the right thing. We closed it down and we saved millions of lives.

But now we opened it up, and it’s opening up to a bang. We’re going to have better — this next year will be better, I think, than any year we’re ever had. That’s how I feel about it. And I’ve been saying it for a long time. The year coming up.

America’s economic comeback has begun. The next year is set to be a year, and — I remember I said it, but it’s going to be an amazing year. For you, it’s going to be great. Your new site is going to be open. It’s a big area that you’re building, and your expansion at Puritan.

But I’m grateful to your leadership team, including Timothy Templet, Scott Wellman, and David Perkins — great people, fantastic people — (applause) — for welcoming us. We have — these are tremendous people. These are great — really, loving people. They’re doing something very important. When you think about what they’re doing, their product is superior. It’s terrific. And it’s made in the USA, and that’s — I shouldn’t tell you this, but I use it every other day. (Laughter.) I go like this. I say, “Is that a Puritan, please?” (Laughter and applause.) No, it’s great product. (Applause.)

But we’re also joined by Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar, who’s doing a great job. Thank you, Alex. (Applause.) And Secretary of Interior David Bernhardt. (Applause.) We just left — we just that meeting with David Bernhardt and Peter Navarro, who’s right here. Peter — stand on up, Peter. (Applause.)

Mr. Congressman, would you please stand up? Come on. We did a thing. (Applause.) We did a — we passed a bill together, right? One of the most important things, Right to Try. Do you know what Right to Try is? That’s where we have the most advanced medical people in the world — labs and everything else — and labs, in many cases, that you work with.

And we have a case where somebody was very sick and they’d go to Asia, they’d go to Europe, they’d go all over the world looking for a cure. You know, they were terminally ill or very sick, very ill. If they didn’t have the money, they’d go home and die. They’d go home. But we have tremendous things coming along, and yet you have to go through a process of testing.

And I said, when we have a situation where somebody is terminally ill, or in that category, we want a right to try our labs. They shouldn’t have to go to Europe and Asia. They shouldn’t have to go all over the world to look for a cure. And we call it the “Right to Try.” You have a right — and it was complex because the drug companies didn’t want it because of liability. The country didn’t want it because they didn’t want to get sued. The insurance companies didn’t want it. The labs didn’t want it because they didn’t want to have anything bad happen to them in terms of what they had to put on — so, you know, on their — on their schedule.

So we said Right to Try. So they have the right to try. They sign a document. They waive the liability. The results — I don’t know if you know, but the results have been unbelievable. The results have been absolutely unbelievable. I mean, we’ve had some great things. (Applause.) So — great. One of the many things we’ve done. But every person here today is playing a vital role in the greatest national industrial mobilization since World War Two. We’ve marshaled the full power of the U.S. government and U.S. industry to defeat the invisible enemy.

And it is indeed an enemy. Should have been stopped in China. Came from China; should have been stopped in China. They didn’t do that.

We’ve delivered over 1.5 billion pieces of personal protective equipment to doctors and nurses on the frontlines. We slashed through red tape to speed the development of vaccines. And vaccines are coming along incredibly well. Wait until you see them. Therapeutics.

And we partnered with private-sector leaders, such as Puritan, to build the largest and most advanced testing capacity on the face of the Earth, like this one.

At this single factory, you quickly ramped up production to produce nearly 20 million foam-tip swabs each month. Then, in April, my administration invoked the Defense Production Act to help you scale up even more. Under a 75-million-dollar public-private partnership, Puritan will soon double production to 40 million swabs per month. That’s a lot. That’s a lot. That’s why we’re beating the world. (Applause.)

And ultimately, you’ll triple production to an astounding 60 million swabs a month, an amazing achievement of American industrial strength. To accomplish this tremendous increase, you partnered with another legendary Maine institution. You’ve never heard of this, I’m sure: Bath Iron Works. Right? (Laughter.) Builder of some of the most powerful warships in the United States Navy for over 135 years. They do a great job.

Under the Defense Production Act, Bath Iron Works is now producing the complex machinery you need to manufacture tens of millions more swabs. And we’re all profoundly grateful to the amazing workers at Bath Shipyard and the executives. They’re really working very closely in many ways, including the building of ships.

Here at Puritan, you’ve already hired 200 new employees with full benefits. And when your new 95,000-square-foot factory in Pittsfield comes online, Puritan will hire an additional 150 Maine workers. Made in the USA, right?

Powered by the dedication of the men and women in this room, America has become the world leader in coronavirus testing. The United States has completed more than 19 million tests, the most anywhere in the world, by far, as I said. You’re now over 20 — 21, almost.

Thanks to you, our country has conducted more tests than all other countries in the world combined. Other than that, you’re not doing very well. (Laughter.)

No, if you listen to the fake news, it’s like, well — you know, I give them a number: “We did 20 million.” “Why didn’t you do 40?” (Laughter.) “Trump should have done 40.” If we did 40, they’d say, “Should have done 100.” Ay-ya-yay, what I have to put up with. (Laughter and applause.) True.

And, you know, when we took over, the cupboards were empty. I always say “the cupboards,” meaning the stockpile. We had very little. And we became now the king of ventilators, also. We’ll have to talk to Puritan. You want to make some ventilators? (Laughter.) We don’t need them. We’re making thousands a week. We have 11 factories, plants. We had practically none, and we saved thousands and thousands of lives.

Ventilators are very hard because they’re big, they’re expensive. I say it’s like making a car, in a certain way. High technology, right? And we’re now making thousands of ventilators a week. And we are at a point where we’re actually helping other countries. We’re sending ventilators to other countries — Nigeria, 200 ventilators. And then they called and we sent them eight hun- — we have a thousand going to Nigeria. Italy, France, Spain. Many, many countries. Russia — we’re sending some to Russia. It’s good for relationship. It’s good for everything.

And we’re knocking them out, and, you know, people aren’t able to just — you can do a swab, even though it’s not that easy, but a ventilator takes a long time. It’s the greatest mobilization, as I said. I mean, greatest since World War Two. It’s been really amazing.

And I’d love the people of the administration, but I’d also like to have our people that work on it, even our — the people of our country to get credit for these things. You know, we got geared up; we did so well. Then you heard about ventilators. There hasn’t been one person in the entire country, from the beginning of this horrible plague that came in — the plague; it’s what it is. There hasn’t been one person that needed a ventilator that didn’t get it. And we started off from a very low platform. They needed, desperately, thousands and thousands of ventilators.

But when you think of it, not one person — with all of the size of our country and all of the people that were sick — not one person, not one that needed a ventilator didn’t get it. I think it’s an incredible achievement to Mike Pence, to all of the people that work in the administration, and to all of the people that went and worked so hard to produce them. (Applause.) Amazing.

And the testing, the same thing. We get — whether it’s Abbott Laboratories or any of the many plans — Roche — we have this incredible testing capacity. We started off with zilch, nothing.

So they’ve done a fantastic job. The whole team has done a really great job, Peter. Wouldn’t you say? Been very amazing.

I want to take a moment to recognize just a few of the hardworking patriots — and that’s what they are — of Maine, who were instrumental in this colossal effort that you’ve done at Puritan.

Angie Buscher. Where is Angie? Come on, Angie. Come on up here. (Applause.) She’s an operator in Puritans laboratory kit manufacturing area, where she’s been working 10 hours a day, 7 days a week for the health of our nation. She’s highly respected. I think she’s very good. Maybe I should hire her. Let’s bring her back. (Laughter.) Let’s bring her back to Washington.

Please, say a few words. Please.

MS. BUSCHUR: I have worked at Puritan for the past 21 years. Since the coronavirus hit, we have spent every day making millions of swabs that helped save lives and helped people save the world. I am so grateful to this company and for the chance to serve our country, that the best way we can pay back is to work harder.

Ever since the President started us helping us grow, we have been so happy and excited to produce even more that I don’t want to stop until the job is done. The President has done so much to support us, and we are all so grateful to know he is fighting for us. Thank you for your leadership, Mr. President.

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you, Angie. Appreciate it. (Applause.) Thank you very much, honey. Let’s — let’s take a picture. Come on. Get over here, Angie. Thank you, darling. I’m not supposed to do that, but it’s okay. What can I — what am I going to do? Say, “Angie — don’t do that, Angie”? (Laughter.) Thank you very much. Great job, Angie.

We’re also joined by Tracy Porter. He has worked here at Puritan for over 40 years — (applause) — and he’s your lead shipping and packaging technician. Tracy, come on up and say a few words, please. Tracy. (Applause.) Forty years. Looks too young to say 40 years, I can tell you. Fantastic, Tracy.

MR. PORTER: Thank you, Mr. President.

THE PRESIDENT: Forty years?

MR. PORTER: Actually, it was 31 years. There was a — a mistake, but that’s fine.

THE PRESIDENT: Okay.

MR. PORTER: Yeah, we all mess up. (Laughter.)

THE PRESIDENT: I feel better. I’m looking at you, I say, “How is that 40 years?”

MR. PORTER: Oh, I appreciate that.

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much.

MR. PORTER: Thank you. More often than not, when we see news of a crisis in the world, we — we lament that few of us have any chance to changing the outcome. Today, we find ourselves blessed with this opportunity to make a difference.

During this recent push to make medical products, we’ve received many letters of thanks from all around the country and kind words of encouragement from our local community.

Just prior to this tragic outbreak, we were working — already working long hours, filling orders for customers who’ve been very good to us — customers like Becton, Dickinson; Hologic; and Quidel, just to name a few. A lot of my coworkers and I were expressing a wish for more machines so we could fill orders faster, and maybe keep our customer’s price down. Well, it looks like we’re going to have enough equipment now. (Laughter and applause).

We look forward to working with two great Maine companies like Cianbro Construction and Bath Iron Works. And I want to thank you, Mr. President, for making it all come together.

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much. (Applause.) Great job. Thank you very much. He’s — even 31 years, he’s — good head of hair he’s got, too. (Laughter.) Good head of hair you have. (Applause.) Thank you, Tracy. Keep looking good. Keep looking good. Keep healthy, everybody in here. Keep healthy.

With us as well is Derek McKenney, the senior manufacturing engineer at Puritan and a project manager for the new manufacturing plant — which is a big deal — coming on line. Derek, please come up and say a few words. (Applause.)

MR. MCKENNEY: Thank you, Mr. President.

THE PRESIDENT: Hi, Derek. Thank you very much.

MR. MCKENNEY: Good afternoon. I’m Derek McKenney, senior manufacturing engineer and second-generation employee of Hardwood and Puritan Medical Products. My mother has been with the company for 35 years, and I spent my childhood — (applause) —

THE PRESIDENT: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. That’s really your mother?

MR. MCKENNEY: That’s my mother. (Laughter.) I spent my childhood —

THE PRESIDENT: Good genes. (Laughter.)

MR. MCKENNEY: I spent my childhood playing in her office, so I — I’ve been around since about kindergarten.

I was lucky enough to be able to go gain education and experience across the U.S. before returning to my roots here in Guilford, Maine. In the last three years, I’ve been presented with many amazing opportunities to make a difference in the world with Puritan’s critical products.

But nothing compared to that day on March 12th when we got the call from the White House Task Force. From that day forward, I’ve been part of a team who’s chosen to rise up and serve their country and the American people. We have worked tirelessly around the clock and through the weekends for the last 12 weeks to provide the testing supplies required to keep Americans safe.

On July 1st, we’ll start production at our second manufacturing facility with the ability to produce 60 million COVID swabs per month. (Applause.)

This project would normally take 18 months to complete, but in a truly unimaginable feat, it will be operational in 8 weeks. It wouldn’t be possible without the total and complete support of the federal government and the dedication of the phenomenal workforce here in the great state of Maine. (Applause.)

This company and all these people are what make the United States of America the greatest country in the world. God bless you all. (Applause.)

THE PRESIDENT: Come on, get over here. Let’s take a picture. Get over here. Come on. Come on. Come on, mom. Come on, mom, get in here.

MS. MCKENNEY: Thank you so much, Mr. President.

MR. MCKENNEY: Yeah, thank you.

THE PRESIDENT: Beautiful. Did he do a good job, mom?

MS. MCKENNEY: He did an awesome job.

THE PRESIDENT: I think he did. He’ll be running for office next year. Watch. (Laughter.) Thank you very much, Derek. Appreciate it. Great job.

And thank you all. The remarkable testing capacity that each of you has made possible, it’s not only helping our nation to defeat the virus — that horrible, horrible, terrible, disgusting, angry virus — it’s paving the way to get America safely and responsibly back open for business, and that’s what we’re doing right now. We’re doing it right now. It’s happening very quickly, a lot quicker than people thought.

Our strategy for a phased and gradual reopening protects our most vulnerable citizens — and you know who they are; we’ve learned a lot about that — especially in the nursing homes, while allowing younger and healthier Americans to get safely back to work and go to school. I think, in the fall, you’re going to see the schools all open and in great shape.

The best approach to protect the health of our citizens is to focus our resources on safeguarding those at highest risk, while allowing those at lowest risk to go and resume economic activity, including education.

A key element of our effort to reopen, revitalize, and rebuild America greater than ever is bringing critical industries back to our shores.

As the workers of Maine know well — and that’s for many decades — Washington politicians shipped away your jobs, outsourced to your supply chains, and offshored your industry. It’s probably the number-one reason I’m here today, although I was going to say another politician — probably, they wouldn’t be here. They wouldn’t bother with it. To me, it’s very important. I had to save your fishing industry. It was so easy — so easy to do, if you want to do it.

But we — we really talked about this for a long time. Our companies would leave us. They’d fire everybody, pay no taxes. They’d go to another country. They’d make the product. They would sell it into our country with no tax, no nothing — while we ended up with no jobs, empty buildings, empty factories. You had them in Maine all over the place.

But we’re changing all of that. We’ve made tremendous trade deals now. Tremendous trade deals. The U.S.-Mexico-Canada deal is an incredible deal. Incredible deal for our country. And many other deals. We just signed a deal with China, but unfortunately, in that case, the ink wasn’t even dry, and all of the sudden, the plague came in — and so I view it a little bit differently, perhaps.

But they’ve been living up to the deal. They’re buying a lot of — a lot of things. They never had any deal. They just came in and took advantage of the United States. Took out hundreds of billions of dollars a year. So they don’t do that anymore, but it’s a terrible thing that happened.

But as the global pandemic has shown, once and for all, the United States must produce essential equipment, supplies, pharmaceuticals, and technologies for ourselves. And we cannot rely on China and all of these other countries that, in bad times, take advantage of us and rip us off. We don’t do that anymore. We’re moving things back into our country.

That’s why the United States is now engaged in a great national effort to bring industries, factories, and jobs back to America where they belong. We want them back here. Just like you’re doing it, we have other — other places all over the country. Of course, they’re not as good as Puritan, but they’re pretty good. (Laughter.)

And I’m committed to ensuring that our country will be the world’s premier pharmacy. It’s going to be a pharmacy, drugstore, and medical manufacturer. We don’t make our medical products here. We don’t make our drugs here that we need — our desperately needed prescription drugs or otherwise.

In my administration, we live by two simple rules: Buy American and hire American. (Applause.)

So, just in ending — I mean, I say: For centuries, the people of this great state have fished the oceans and farmed the fields and worked the factories that have supplied and sustained our nation. And then they went through a very bad time — a very bad time. Right here in Guilford, generations of proud Maine patriots have poured out their heart, sweat, and soul for this country, making the critical products produced by Puritan. And now Puritan is doing better than it’s ever done, I guess, by a factor of a lot, right? Right?

You know, they call themselves “associates.” See, in the old days, they’d say they were the boss. (Laughter.) Now they’re associates. They’re very smart. I say, “Oh, that’s very smart.” But they’ve done a great job as associates. You’re all associates.

Each of you now carries on this extraordinary legacy and exceptional heritage, serving our nation at this very historic time. This is a historic time. This is a very important time for our country. You see what’s going on. But a lot of good things are going on. A lot of things are going on. A very big thing happened, though, today, when we saw numbers the likes of which we’ve never seen in the history of our country. Good timing. Because people look at that, and they say, “Hey, this country is great. We’ve done things that nobody else has ever done.” It was good to — good that they see that, right? Good timing.

You and your families are making momentous contributions to the vitality of our country, helping us reopen, rebuild, and most importantly, saving lives. The workers of Maine have always been loyal to America. And while I’m your President, this government will always be loyal to you.

Just ask your fishing industry, “How’s Trump doing?” Because they can’t even believe what happened today. (Laughter.) Five thousand square miles of ocean that you couldn’t touch. They just wrote it off — President Obama. He signed. You couldn’t use it anymore. They took it away. I gave it back. With your help — (applause).

By the way, I said, “Why’d they take it away?” Nobody knew. You know, it’s okay to take it away if it means something. I mean — but nobody knew.

With your help, we will vanquish the virus, we will get our nation back to work, and we shall build our glorious future with American hands, American grit, and American pride. And I want to just thank all of you for being here. You’re very special people. This is a very special place. And it’s a great state. And thank you very much.

And get that other half, by the way — get that other half to go with Trump, okay? (Laughter.) You — you, I don’t have to worry about. And I think they’ll be there, too. Because there’s a very, very important election coming up — the most important. It’s amazing what’s happened, and you’ve been a big part of it.

Thank you very much. Congratulations to everybody. Thank you. (Applause.)

      • “…They are not wearing masks…” That’s because those people are not looting or fire-bombing or instigating a riot. I believe most people are catching on that masks are for Doctors and nurses as originally intended. The “curve” has been flattened months ago. Hiding in your basement in the dark is unhealthy and weakening. Of course the media shows the opposite when on camera. The anti-Trumpers expect us to be wearing masks while water skiing this summer.

How can anyone deny his unwavering courage and love for America and we the people? That the left does just shows how blind they are to real patriotism and how little they care for this country they live in too.

      Short answer to your question in your excellent post: we cannot drag them “back” until “we” (and they) are brutally honest with ourselves/themselves as to the sad reality that far far too many patriots and an ever-increasing number of other Americans in the “big middle” have been compromised and co-opted by our enemies.

      Specifically, I think we are reaching a tipping point, if we haven’t already, where far more Americans have lost their “virtue” (as understood and lived by our Founders—the term encompasses traditional Judeo-Christian values), both individual and civic than retain it and this erosion is accelerating.

      As I keep suggesting, any dragging we are able to do, or anything else to try to “save” America, will largely be for naught unless and until we deal with this loss of virtue. As our Founders repeatedly warned us, America cannot survive unless the citizenry (at least “most” of us) is virtuous.

    President Trump is not like any other politician and ultimately that’s a good thing. The President’s calm, business as usual demeanor during his WH speech today must have stunned the corrupt media as they baked in the DC sunshine. They were expecting him to look at least a tad rattled or disturbed by the previous nights’ mobs and by the media’s relentless attacks. The absence of crocodile tears and disingenuous platitudes, that would have been Obama’s style, infuriated them. “How does this help Floyd,” one belched while others howled.

    Once again, POTUS exposed the corrupt media’s priorities. It certainly isn’t the 2.5 million workers listed in the BLS Report that are employed once again or the soon to be employed Americans that will receive additional funds from the bi-partisan Payroll Protection Program.

    If the job gain reports, the PPP announcement and the uplifting events the President attended today in Maine don’t give the American people some much needed hope and optimism for the future I don’t know what would. All the Biden Dems and their corrupt media have to offer in the end are harmful policies and prolonged misery.

      I hope your comment about blindly following him is tongue in cheek.

      I think no American should ever “worship” or “blindly follow” any political leader. As for Trump, I certainly have great respect for his stamina and most of his decisions, but not all, as I strongly disagree with many of his statements, actions and failures to act. Thus, as it is for any human, I will never blindly follow him.

      I will, however, continue to support him 110% as the best current alternative to whoever the dimocrats put up against him (Biden is a mere placeholder for whoever is picked as VP—that person is who we need to really focus on).

      This choice is even more clear given the dimocrat platform that includes even more wanton murder of innocent babies in the name of “choice,” an economic program that will bankrupt America, support of the new religion of “climate change,” further attacks on Christians to clear the way for more atheism and perversion of all kinds (they are even talking seriously now of decriminalizing pedophilia), legalization of “recreational drugs” that we are demanded to believe are totally “harmless” etc. etc.

Several of the perps were located as was the getaway vehicle. Local TV news didn’t mention the incident.

SecDef Esper must surely understand the seditious situation the nation has gone through during the past three years. His opposition to the President now borders on suggesting the overthrow of the President. But to remove him now would play into the hand of the Seditious Snakes.

        Mullen, Mattis, McMaster, and the retired SEAL Admirals who desire to “remove Trump, the sooner the better” have shown their true colors–they have sold their souls for power, not the national interest. As General Smedley Butler said, “war is their racket!”

    What a Great speech!
    So enjoy when President TRUMP seems more relaxed.

    The tempo/tone made it easier, imho, to relax and just take it in. After watching nearly everything “TRUMP”, as so many of us have, I count this speech in the top 10… ish. (This type of occasion) Not quite so fast… not soooo 🤔 “Projected”. 🤔 Softer, if you will. That’s not to say less meaningful.
    I had to “pay attention” to what was being said; and being said with authority. President TRUMP means what he says. He means business. He’ll do what must be done.
    I know it. Many here @CTH know it. Our friends and allies know it.
    (That’s a good thing)
    So, too, do those that do not look out for anyone’s interest, but there own… know it. And that scares them. That “They” can not control him…
    That’s “New” to them.
    And they really, really, really don’t want any part of “New”.

    On a few occasions, imo, a slightly raised voice was warranted. Although, throught most of the speech – no one topic (Save the Floating Flu.. compliments of CHI-NA) – was front and center for too long…It flowed.
    As the President mentioned, “You all see what’s going on”… and indeed we do.. who doesn’t!
    Nothing more was needed; WE DO see what is going on and WE KNOW President TRUMP sees it as well….

    And he’ll do what must be done.

    Here is Janet Mills response to the Presidents visit to Maine: (email received through State of maine notification system)

    Governor Mills Statement on President’s Visit to Maine
    June 5, 2020

    Governor Janet Mills issued the following statement in response to the President’s visit to Maine:

    “What Maine people heard today was more of the same incendiary rhetoric and insults he uses to try to divide us and to stoke tension and fear. What Maine people heard today was largely devoid of fact and absent of reality. What Maine people saw today was a rambling, confusing, thinly-veiled political rally.

    I have spent the better part of my career listening to loud men talk tough to disguise their weakness. That’s what I heard today.

    I don’t care what the President says about me. I care what he does for Maine people.

    And that’s not very much.

    At a time when Maine fishermen are badly hurting, the President had an opportunity to acknowledge and address their very real and significant concerns – many of which are the direct result of his Administration’s harmful policies.

    Rolling back a national monument 35 miles southeast of Cape Cod – one that is currently open to commercial fishing according to NOAA – is not going to help the vast majority of Maine fishermen feed their families. It will not help them pay their mortgage or rent. It will not support an industry that is struggling under the massive weight of an unprecedented pandemic and misguided Federal policies.

    What Maine fishermen need from this President is a better trade policy from his Administration, not misguided plans for retaliatory tariffs which have been shown to do more harm than good. They also need more Federal financial support, as I requested months ago.

    The President’s absolute lack of any leadership whatsoever during this pandemic has only hurt, not helped, Maine.

    Mr. President, I do not take advice from someone whose failed leadership and lack of preparedness has contributed to the deaths of more than 100,000 Americans, including nearly 100 here in Maine.

    Maine CDC reported today that three more people have died in our state and thirty-six more were infected. That may seem like a low number compared to other states. Our numbers are comparatively low precisely because of the actions we have taken.

    When I entered office and far before we knew there was a pandemic on the horizon, I rebuilt Maine’s public health system which was decimated under the previous administration. I hired some of the most qualified and highly respected public health professionals to rebuild our healthcare system. I paid off the previous administration’s debt to the federal government, and I saved millions in the Rainy Day Fund to bring it to a record high. I created an economic development plan to strengthen our economy for the first time in more than twenty years, and I brought Republicans, Democrats, Greens and Independents together to restore civility and normalcy in our state.

    When the pandemic hit, I, along with my fellow governors, pleaded with the Administration for months for Personal Protective Equipment to protect our frontline workers and for testing supplies so that we could prevent the spread of the virus and begin to loosen restrictions on our struggling businesses. With no vaccine, physical distancing was our only tool to prevent Maine from becoming a hotspot like our neighboring state of Massachusetts.

    The President told us to find it ourselves. So we did. Maine more than tripled our testing capacity through our agreement with Maine’s own IDEXX so that anyone suspected of having COVID-19 can be tested in Maine if their doctor thinks it’s appropriate, which allowed us to move into the first phase of our reopening before many of our fellow states.

    Since then, with public health data showing that the vast majority of COVID-19 cases in our state are occurring in our southern most populous counties, we have almost fully opened thirteen of Maine’s sixteen counties. In fact, Maine was the first New England state to allow indoor dining at restaurants. And just yesterday, we accelerated the openings of more businesses in thirteen of our sixteen counties.

    And my Administration is preparing to unveil next week our final plan for tourism because the best thing we can do for Maine businesses is create a system that will instill a sense of safety and consumer confidence for the public, for staff, and for travelers to want to come here.

    Finally, contrary to some outlandish, partisan allegations, the State of Maine fully encourages unemployed individuals to return to work, and if the President is unhappy with the $600 per week PUA benefit, then he should look in the mirror at who signed into it into law.

    As Governor, my responsibility is to protect the health and wellbeing of Maine people and to support our economy – and I will continue to strike that balance. I urge the President to take his own responsibility to protect the health of all Americans as seriously.”

  44. Clinton and Obama abused the Act to get around the National Park law. That requires listening to Congress, states and locals.They prefer the diktat. Which is weird, cos they keep calling President Trump the dictator.

    Wiki: “The Act states that areas of the monuments are to be confined to the smallest area compatible with the proper care and management of the objects to be protected.” It is supposed to be used for discrete icons such as Indian ruins, not as a One-Man National Park law. Obaba created one “Monument” of nearly 600,000 square miles off Hawaii, a complete abuse which crippled fishing there, too.

    Clinton and Gore single-handedly put 1.35 million acres in UTAH’s Bear’s Ears off limits. They didn’t even have the guts to go to UTAH–they did it from the Grand Canyon. Even though the Feds already own half of the West, they decreed this pure Federal land-grab, hated by Utahans.

    President Trump reduced it by 85%. He should do that in Maine and Hawaii, too.

  46. This was great! This is what Maine people have always been about; hard working, honest, patriots. They are thrilled to have a job! I mean Guilford is in the middle of nowhere…a job like this is phenomenal…so proud of Maine! (former resident of 30 years).

    I felt things turn today for our President.
    His sails are set and he has a strong wind at his back!
    Fight on Mr President fight on.
    We love you and we are with you all the way!
