Donald Trump's Michigan Speech Appealing to Black Voters, Working Class (Text Transcript and Full Video)

Donald Trump's Michigan Speech Appealing to Black Voters, Working Class (Text Transcript and Full Video)

Michigan ranks first for jobs lost as a share of state workforce due to the trade deficit with TPP members.

Just imagine how many more automobile jobs will be lost if Hillary gets her wish and approves the TPP. That is why I have announced we will withdraw from the deal before that can ever happen.

I have previously laid out a detailed 7-point plan for trade reform, available on my website. It includes strong protections against currency manipulation from counties like China, and tariffs against any nation that cheats by unfairly subsidizing their goods. My plan also includes a renegotiation of NAFTA. If we don't get a better deal, we will walk away.

We want trade deals. But we want trade deals that work for America – that create jobs and wealth in our country. We want to shrink our trade deficit, not expand it. We want to be leading the world in production, exports and manufacturing. We want jobs to leave other countries and come to our country.

Another major issue in this race is foreign policy. Hillary Clinton has made one bad foreign policy decision after another – beginning with her support for going to war in Iraq in the first place, which I opposed.

Her tenure as Secretary of State may be regarded as the most disastrous in U.S. history, but yet she is totally without remorse.

Her failed decisions as Secretary of State unleashed ISIS onto the world.

But has she ever apologized for the death and destruction she has caused?

Look at the world before and after she became Secretary of State.

Pre-Hillary, in early 2009, Iraq was seeing a reduction in violence.

Libya was stable.

Syria was under control.

The group we know today as ISIS was close to being extinguished.

Iran was being choked by sanctions.

Now, fast-forward to present time.

After Hillary, here is what the world looks like:

Iraq is in total chaos.

Syria is in the midst of a disastrous civil war and a refugee crisis now threatens Europe and the United States.

ISIS has been unleashed onto the entire world.

Iran – the world's top state sponsor of terrorism – has been put on the path to nuclear weapons, and was given a $400 million ransom payment, something which has now been confirmed after President Obama's lies.

This is the legacy of Hillary Clinton: death, destruction and terrorism.

America deserves a better legacy. All of you deserve a better future. I am the change agent. Hillary Clinton is the defender of the status quo.

While our country lost badly under Hillary Clinton, she cashed in big time. Bill Clinton's speaking fees surged while Hillary was Secretary of State – Bill was paid almost $50 million for speeches during her tenure, an increase of 44% over the previous 4 years.

Then there was all the money funneled into the Clinton Foundation from foreign governments and corporations.

It was pay-for-play.

Yet, Hillary Clinton, who is indifferent to the suffering she has caused, has no remorse. She offers no apologies for selling government favors. No apologies for unleashing ISIS. No apologies for open borders. No apologies for lying about her emails, or about Benghazi.

The only way to learn the full depth of her public corruption is to read the 33,000 emails she deleted.

And the only way to get justice in this rigged system is to show up and vote on November 8th– and to vote big.

Are you ready to vote for the future you want?

Are you ready to vote for the honest government you deserve?

A Trump Administration will end the corruption and restore integrity to government service.

No one will be above the law.

In A Trump Administration, the State Department will work for the country – not for Hillary Clinton's donors.

And I will work for you – and for no one else.

I will never lie to you, I will never put any other interest before you, and I will never, every stop fighting for you.

The government will work for the people again.

That means we are only going to admit individuals into our country who support our values, and we're not going to issue visas where adequate screening cannot take place. We will also seek to join in partnership with any nation that wishes to join us in defeating and destroying ISIS.

At home, taxes will go down, especially for middle-income Americans. And small business rates will be lowered to 15 percent, so we can put millions of news job into our poorest neighborhoods.

Obamacare will be repealed and replaced.

Voters, not special interests, will be in charge.

Finally, we are going to bring our country together again. The era of division will be replaced with a future of unity.

We are going to do it by emphasizing what we all have in common as Americans.

It is time to break with the failures of the past, and to fight for every last child in this country to have the better future they deserve.

In my Administration, every American will be treated equally, protected equally, and honored equally. We will reject bigotry and hatred and oppression in all of its forms, and seek a new future built on our common culture and values as one American people.

This is the change I am promising all of you: an honest government, a thriving economy, and a just society for each and every American.

It is time to vote for a New American Future.

Together, We Will Make America Wealthy Again.

We Will Make America United Again.

We Will Make American Proud Again.

We Will Make America Safe Again.

And We Will Make America Great Again.

Thank you, and God Bless.
