TRANSCRIPT

FOR¬†PRESIDENT, I PROMISE THAT MY¬†ADMINISTRATION WOULD FIGHT EVERYDAY FOR AMERICAN WORKERS.¬†YEARS OF UNFAIR TRADE HAVE¬†HAMMERED AMERICAN FAMILIES AND¬†PLUNDERED AMERICAN WEALTH.¬†IT HAS BEEN ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE¬†FOR OUR COUNTRY.¬†WE TURNED A¬†BLIND¬†EYE WHILE OTHER NATIONS TARGETED¬†OUR¬†INDUSTRIES AND RANSACKED OUR FACTORIES.¬†THEY TOOK ADVANTAGE OF OUR¬†COUNTRY, THEY TOOK ADVANTAGE¬†OF OUR PEOPLE.¬†OVER THE LAST TWO DECADES, THE UNITED¬†STATES RACKED¬†UP $12.5 TRILLION IN¬†TRADE DEFICITS IN¬†GOODS, AND WATCHED¬†NEARLY 1/3 OF OUR¬†MANUFACTURING JOBS DISAPPEAR OR GO¬†TO OTHER COUNTRIES.¬†WE FINANCED THE RISE OF OTHER¬†COUNTRIES AT THE EXPENSE¬†OF OUR OWN, MIDDLE-CLASS PEOPLE.YET OUR LEADERS IN WASHINGTON¬†DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.¬†THEY ALLOWED OTHER¬†COUNTRIES TO¬†CHEAT, TO BREAK¬†THE¬†RULES, AND TO STEAL¬†OUR JOBS WITH IMPUNITY.¬†POLITICIANS¬†RESPONDED¬†TO¬†ECONOMIC AGGRESSION¬†WITH ECONOMIC SURRENDER. NOT¬†ANYMORE. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.¬†WE ARE STANDING¬†UP FOR OUR¬†FAMILIES,¬†OUR FACTORY WORKERS,AND OUR WAY OF LIFE.¬†MY¬†ADMINISTRATION¬†HEARS YOUR VOICE AND HAS YOUR BACK.¬†AFTER A¬†THOROUGH¬†INVESTIGATION, MY¬†ADMINISTRATION DOCUMENTED¬†CHINA’S¬†UNFAIR¬†TRADE¬†PRACTICES,¬†INCLUDING FORST TECHNOLOGY¬†TRANSFERS. AS A RESULT¬†OF THIS¬†INVESTIGATION,¬†WE ARE TAKING¬†CONCRETE¬†ACTIONS TO STOP THIS¬†ABUSE,¬†INCLUDING PROPOSING TARIFFS¬†FOR¬†SELECT IMPORTS¬†DESIGNED TO SAVE OUR¬†INDUSTRIES FOR THE FUTURE.¬†WE HAVE¬†NO OTHER CHOICE.¬†WE WILL¬†GET ALONG¬†WITH CHINA,THEY WILL BE FRIENDS¬†OF OURS,¬†BUT THEY JUST CAN’T TAKE ADVANTAGE OF US ANY LONGER.¬†WE WILL¬†HAVE A GREAT RELATIONSHIP¬†WITH¬†CHINA, BUTIT WILL BE A FAIR RELATIONSHIP,¬†NOT LIKE IT WAS.¬†WE WILL¬†ALSO NO LONGER TOLERATE UNFAIR¬†AND¬†NONRECIPROCAL TRADING¬†PRACTICES,¬†NOT ONLY WITH CHINA,¬†BUT WITH ANYONE.¬†MY¬†ADMINISTRATION WILL USE ALL AVAILABLE¬†AUTHORITIES TO PROTECT OUR¬†GREAT FARMERS. WE LOVE¬†OUR FARMERS,¬†WE ARE GOING TO TAKE CARE¬†OF OUR FARMERS.¬†WE WANT¬†FAIR AND RECIPROCAL¬†TRADE,¬†WHERE COUNTRIES OPEN THEIR¬†MARKETS¬†IN EQUAL MEASURE,¬†AND¬†ALL SIDES PLAY BY THE¬†RULES, AND¬†THAT HASN’T BEEN¬†HAPPENING IN THE¬†PAST.¬†WHAT¬†WE WON’T TOLERATE OUR ONE-SIDED DEALS, WHERE WE OPEN¬†OUR MARKETS¬†WHILE OTHER COUNTRIES¬†IS.¬†ONLYBY STANDING UP FOR OURSELVES CAN¬†WE END¬†THE¬†ABUSE, RESTORE OUR PROSPERITY,¬†AND RECLAIM OUR ECONOMIC¬†INDEPENDENCE.¬†WE’RE GOING TO MAKE AMERICA¬†WEALTHY AGAIN, NOT ONLY GREAT AGAIN.¬†THANK YOU, GOD BLESS¬†YOU, AND GOD BLESS AMERICA
