Trump's Remarks at Values Voter Summit: October 14, 2019

This is just a fraction of the speech.

REMARKS

Remarks by President Trump at Values Voter Summit
Issued on: October 14, 2019

Omni Shoreham Hotel
Washington, D.C.

October 12, 2019
6:47 P.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT: Well, thank you very much. (Applause.) Thank you very much. It is a great honor to be here. Tony; Pastor Brunson, who I have gotten to know very well — that was not easy, but we got him out, and got him back to his family. (Applause.) And I want to thank you for that beautiful prayer. It means a lot.

{snip}

And when you hear Schiff — “We won’t give you that money unless you do this.” It had nothing to do — it wasn’t even discussed. It was a terrible, terrible fraudulent thing. And then Nancy Pelosi went on television. She was very angry when she read the actual call, because this was an exact — I guess stenographers, they took it down.

And she was very angry because she got led — she was a day early when she started talking about impeachment. But that did not matter to her. “Let’s do it anyway.” And for those of you that think she was reasoned for the last six months — you know, when she said, “No, no, no. We need more…” I said, “She’s going to do it. She just wants to have it carried out closer to the election. She’s going to do it.”

Not a good person. I think she hates our country. Because if she didn’t hate our country, she wouldn’t be doing this to our country. It’s a fraud. It’s a fraud. (Applause.)

{snip}

And then we caught him. And I said, “He has to pay a big price.” And they said, “Sir, he has total immunity because he was in the great chamber, talking to congressmen, talking to the American public, lying and cheating, and there’s supposed to be nothing we can do about it.” But he also went outside and, as usual, he talked to the press, and he said a lot of what he said to the press. So we’re going to take a look at it. We are going after these people. These are bad, bad people. (Applause.)

I actually told my lawyers, I said, “Sue him anyway.” He’s got immunity, but they can’t mean immunity for that. I said, “Sue him anyway. Even if we lose, the American public will understand.” (Applause.) And sue Nancy Pelosi, or maybe we should just impeach them. Because they’re lying, and what they are doing is a terrible thing for our country.

{snip}

You know, he gets up with his very — very narrow neck. You remember? (Laughter.) Pencil neck. Dana, you would not be impressed with him, physically. But he gets up — no dummy, but he’s a crooked person. Smart guy. He’s crooked as hell. And this is what they’re using to — and they’re going to be very unsuccessful. But that is what they are using — this call — to try to impeach the President of the United States, who did win one of the great elections of all time. All time. (Applause.)

And it couldn’t have come at a better time, because if we would had lost that, we would have been in a lot of trouble. We’d have had a very different country right now. Even with China, the other day, they were saying it’s incredible what you’ve done. Our economy is up many, many trillions of dollars. Their economy is down many, many trillions of dollars. (Applause.) Big gap.

We would have been number two by now if our opponent had won. They would have been way ahead of us, and now they’re way behind. And that’s okay.

{snip}

And, you know, I am at 94 percent approval rating, but still you have people out there — they don’t get it. They don’t get it. So we love the Republicans. We love what we’re doing. We love our programs. And in many cases, we’re better politicians than them. We have much better policies. We want strong borders. We want powerful education. We want freedom of speech. We want a strong military.

{snip}

Something I am very proud of: I stopped the Johnson Amendment from interfering with pastors’ rights to speak their mind. You can say whatever you want, you’re the people we want to hear from. We want to hear from you.

{snip}

Remember the debate with Crooked Hillary, where I said she wants to rip the babies out of the womb in the ninth month? And everybody said, “Wow.” That’s the first time they heard that statement. And you’re just lucky that we won — because we won. I didn’t win; we won. This would be a much different country.

{snip -- and then this classic}

We had a general come to my office — respected general. And we were having big trouble with one country — first week in office, very early. He said, “Sir, we have no ammunition.” I said, “You know what? We’re going to have ammunition — a lot of it. And hopefully we’ll never going to have to use it, but we have a lot of it.” But I also said, “I never want to have another President of the United States hear those words from a general.” Because does that put us in bad position, right?

{snip}

My administration has also made tremendous progress in fighting back against the left’s effort to use the federal courts to impose their fringe ideology and crush the same religious liberty that we have been speaking of tonight. To defend our Constitution, we have confirmed more than 160 highly qualified judges to interpret the law as written, including two incredible new Supreme Court justices. (Applause.)

You know, I have always heard that federal judges, judges, and Supreme Court justices — most important decision a President could make. And I disagreed. I always said, “You know, look, defense to me has got always to be number one.”

But I got it. I said, “You know, it is. It’s really incredible.” And usually, when a President comes to office, there’s no — you have no vacancies. Or the previous President would have — boom. There should be no vacancy, you know, whatever their ideology is.

But I guess they thought that the crooked one was going to win or something. (Laughter.) So I came in and, in the first couple of days, they said, “By the way…” You know, I had a couple of other things going, too — including the fact that a few minutes after I was sworn in, the Washington Post wrote a story that the impeachment starts right now. You saw that, right? Did you see that?

Right after I got sworn — took the oath of office, they did that story — literally, a very few moments after the swearing-in — that the road to impeachment starts right now.

But I had a lot of other things. But I said during the course of the first very early period, like a week — I said, “By the way, how many federal judgeships do I have?” They said, “Sir, you have 142.” I said, “What?” (Laughter.) “You have 142, sir.” I said, “You’ve got to be kidding. 142? You mean I have two, one, none?” “No, you have 142.”

{snip}

And then we have extras that we got through attrition, through retirement, through death. And then we will very shortly — in less than a couple of months, we’ll have 182 federal judgeships, including — including appeals judges, court of appeals. (Applause.) One hundred and eighty-two. (Inaudible.)

{snip}

The “Beatles” — you know the Beatles? They’re the ones with the chopped off heads? And do you know what we did? The night that the war — that the shooting started, we had some incredible people go into that prison, and grab them, and bring them out, and we have them totally under wraps. They were the worst of everyone. And we’ve got them now. They are ours. (Applause.)

1. If he slanders my Beatles one more time....

Imagine being an actual "value voter" and listening to this guy go on and on about how he is not being allowed to wreak even more damage to the country's values...

"Sir, sir..." he just loves that. He assumes that indicates servility to him rather than simple good form.

And he BRAGS about coming into the job knowing nothing about it.

But I had a lot of other things.

3. I haven't any idea what he's talking about when he brings up the Beatles.

Is that some nicknames for ISIS members from the UK?
