(Applause.)
But actuality with all of you today, it aloof makes me think, for so abounding years, I’m — I’m absolutely — I’m advantageous to be abutting on my aggregation by some YAFers in their youth. My own Arch of Staff, Marc Short, who may able-bodied be in the room, in the band of sight, is an old Adolescent America’s Foundation person. And you ability additionally apperceive — he’s backstage — but the president’s arch speechwriter, Stephen Miller, is an old YAFer.
So if you anytime admiration if YAF is activity to barrage you into positions of (inaudible) absorb time in the West Wing, don’t anytime agnosticism it. You could accord them a annular of applause. They’re appropriate guys as well. (Applause.)
But I’ve continued admired and — I’ve continued admired Adolescent America’s — Adolescent Americans for Freedom, I accept to acquaint you. This is an alignment not aloof a stewardship, of — of the Reagan Ranch that my adolescent ancestors and I visited about 15 years ago, but the administering of the bourgeois calendar for adolescent bodies on campuses all beyond America — advancing the account of alone freedom, a able civic defense, chargeless enterprise, and acceptable moral values. And anniversary and every one of you are ascent leaders in this bearing that accept accepted that agenda.
And I’m seeing all these abundant adolescent faces out actuality today, but how about a annular of acclaim for all the supporters of YAF who are additionally actuality with us as well? (Applause.) Acknowledge you for your generosity to this cause.
But I came actuality today not aloof to advice you bang off your — your Fall Retreat, but additionally I came actuality today artlessly to say acknowledge you. Acknowledge you for the absurd abutment that YAFers accept provided to our administering every footfall of the way these able four years.
And as our acclamation challenge continues in courts beyond America, I appetite to affiance you: We are activity to accumulate angry until every acknowledged vote is counted and until every actionable vote is befuddled out. (Applause.) And whatever the aftereffect at the end of the process, I affiance you: We will never stop angry to achieve America abundant again. (Applause.)
I mean, it’s amazing to anticipate — it’s amazing to anticipate what took abode on Acclamation Day with the abutment of all of you. While we’re continuing to assignment through the courts action and — and with, I was told this morning, over 1,000 actual able attorneys in America to achieve abiding that we accept candor in our vote.
But anticipate about what’s already been recognized: This President absolutely anchored 72 amateur votes. That was added than — 10 amateur added votes than we accustomed in 2016. In fact, it’s added votes than any Republican applicant or any bounden President in the history of the United States of America. And what maybe meant the best to the President and me is that the vote that came in on November the 3rd for this Republican President absolutely included the able admeasurement of American boyhood voters in 60 years. (Applause.)
And it wasn’t aloof the numbers in our race. Because of the abutment that all of you provided in all the states from which you come, we absolutely already accept added 12 seats to the Abode of Representatives. And we — we won three accompaniment houses. And accord us aloof a little bit added than a month; we’re activity to win two Senate seats in the abundant accompaniment of Georgia and authority the Senate majority for the Republican Party. (Applause.) Are you with me on that? (Applause.)
I mean, it absolutely is incredible, men and women, all that we’ve able to date. And alike with the acclamation challenge that’s underway at the presidential level, I anticipate we accept so abundant to celebrate, and it’s a absorption of the assignment that all of you accept done.
But I additionally basic to allotment with you for aloof a few account about why we action and why we abide to fight. You know, I about-face on the cable television stations and it seems like there’s a lot of handwringing on a brace of them about why are we accepting this acclamation contest. And — and I appetite to abode that to anniversary one of you.
It’s because it — really, it’s about attention the candor of the ballot, it’s about attention what we accept able and accept yet to do, and it’s all about preventing the added ancillary from accident all the advance that we’ve fabricated in authoritative America abundant again.
First and foremost, why we fight: It’s about attention the candor of the ballot. You know, men and women of YAF, I anticipate you all apperceive the appropriate to vote is axial to our republic. It has been dedicated by ancestors of American heroes in uniform. And any time that — that a counterfeit vote enters the ballot, it — it absolutely cancels the honest vote of an American — an honest vote that was won and fought for in ancestors of warfare by this country.
And so we’re activity to angle to bottle the candor of the vote. We’re activity to — we’re activity to action for an aftereffect in this acclamation that wins us four added years. But we’re additionally activity to action to ensure that we account the honest and acknowledged vote of every American for this bearing and the next. (Applause.) The American bodies deserve annihilation less. I mean, you all know, the avant-garde media doesn’t get to aces our President; the American bodies do. And we’re activity to achieve abiding — we’re activity to achieve abiding that the American people’s best prevails in this presidential election. (Applause.) So that’s aboriginal and foremost why we’re angry appropriate now.
But we’re additionally angry to bottle aggregate that we’ve accomplished. It absolutely is amazing to anticipate about what we accept done in the aftermost four years. And I say that with a little agitate of my duke because I best that up off the President. I’ve absent calculation of the cardinal of times that bodies would appear into the Oval Appointment and say to the President, “Thank you for what you’ve done.” And he would consistently — he gets his ha- — just, “We.” I mean, this is a President that — that understands that aggregate that we’ve been able to accomplish, it’s because of the abutment of tens of millions of Americans who knew we could be able again, who knew we could be affluent afresh if we re-grounded our nation in all the ethics and attempt that accept consistently fabricated America great.
But, I mean, anticipate about it: Four years ago, we affiliated a aggressive that had been biconcave out by adverse account cuts, an abridgement that was disturbing to breach out of the slowest accretion aback the Abundant Depression. Terrorism was on the acceleration about the world. And — and, as you all apperceive well, we witnessed a abiding advance on our best admired ethics and freedoms.
But beneath President Donald Trump, in four abbreviate years, we rebuilt our military; we adequate the armory of democracy; we alive our economy, anchored our border, accurate law enforcement, and stood for life, liberty, and the Constitution of the United States of America. (Applause.) I mean, anticipate about it.
And I — you know, and I — and some of you apperceive that I — I’ve got three kids about your all’s age, and one of them is a United States Marine, and my babe is affiliated to a Navy pilot who’s currently deployed. So I couldn’t be added appreciative to be Vice President to a President who alive the better access in our civic aegis aback the canicule of Ronald Reagan. It’s true. We’re assuredly giving our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, Coast Guard, and Space Force the assets they charge to avert this nation. (Applause.)
And with that renewed American strength, you all saw the adventure disentangle over the aftermost four years — and decidedly over the aftermost year and a half. At the administering of this Commander-in-Chief, it was — it was America’s Armed Forces, alive with our allies in the region, that took bottomward the ISIS caliphate, captured the aftermost inch of area beneath the atramentous banderole of ISIS, and took bottomward their leader, Baghdadi, afterwards one American casualty. (Applause.)
And it wasn’t aloof the caliphate and their leader. It was in January of this year, aback I was there, aback President Trump fabricated the decision, aback we had in our architect the best alarming agitator in the world. And because of our armed forces, and because of the backbone of our President, Qasem Soleimani is gone. (Applause.)
So we’ve — we’ve stood up to our enemies, but we additionally stood with our allies with that renewed backbone as well. And I accept to acquaint you, accepting continued been a best of our best admired ally, I couldn’t be added appreciative — afterwards four antecedent Presidents promised to do it and afresh didn’t, I couldn’t be added appreciative to be Vice President to a President who kept his affiance to the American bodies and he confused the American admiral to Jerusalem, the basic of the Accompaniment of Israel. (Applause.)
And actuality at home, this — this is a President, as Governor Walker aloof said, who additionally kept his babble to animate this economy. Area the aftermost administering approved to tax and adapt and bond us aback to a growing economy, it was President Donald Trump who cut taxes beyond the lath for alive families and businesses ample and small. We formed aback added federal red band than any administering in American history. We unleashed American energy. We’re now a net exporter of activity for the aboriginal time in 70 years. And we fought for chargeless and fair trade, adjourned our trading accord with Canada and Mexico, and the aftereffect was 7 amateur jobs created in aloof three years and accomplishment ascent at the fastest clip in added than a decade. Abandon works. (Applause.)
I mean, the accuracy is that all of those behavior unleashed an American renaissance — in job creation, baby businesses, American energy, and exports. And — and all forth the way, this President has stood for the aphorism of law, attempt so admired by Adolescent Americans for Abandon and conservatives beyond the country. And arch amid those things, we’ve stood with those who’ve — who’ve adequate and served our families every distinct day.
And President Donald Trump, every distinct day, has stood with the men and women of law enforcement. We aback the blue, and we aback men and women who will angle with those in law enforcement. (Applause.)
And all forth the way, this President additionally kept his affiance that, again, my acquaintance Scott was talking about. I bethink — I bethink aback — aback President Trump pulled out the list, with acceptable admonition from — from accompany at Federalist Society and elsewhere. And he said, “This is a account from which we will draw if there are openings on the Supreme Court.”
And the accuracy is that we drew from that account and that abiding counsel, and we’ve absolutely appointed added than 220 conservatives to our federal courts at every level, and they are all men and women who will advocate the God-given liberties anointed in our Constitution, like the abandon of speech, the abandon of religion, and the Second Amendment appropriate to accumulate and buck arms. (Applause.)
And that includes Justice Neil Gorsuch, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and Justice Amy Coney Barrett. (Applause.) Isn’t she great? Isn’t she great? I’m cogent you what — not aloof because she’s from Indiana. Right? (Laughter.) How abundant did you adulation it aback they said, “Would you appearance us what’s on that cardboard in avant-garde of you?” Nothing. (Laughs.) Aloof an amazing, conscionable person.
But I’m cogent you, Judge Barrett — now Justice Barrett — Justice Kavanaugh, and Justice Gorsuch, they’re aloof emblematic of over 200 conscionable attorneys who are on our courts at every level, deepening the foundation under- — basement our Constitution in the judiciary.
In fact, I achievement some of you accept the opportunity, in the bosom of this conference, to booty some time to accept to Justice Alito’s accent at the Federalist Society aftermost night. He said, and I quote, “We accept never afore apparent restrictions as severe… and abiding as those [that accept been] experienced” on abandon in the year 2020. He said things that were “previously doubtful restrictions” on our abandon of accent and on religious alternative — had taken place. Justice Alito’s admonition aftermost night is an admonition I anticipate every YAFer should embrace. And that is, he said, “We charge to do whatever we can to anticipate [our axiological freedoms] from acceptable second-tier built-in rights.”
The acceptable account is this abundant organization, Adolescent America’s Foundation — Adolescent Americans for Abandon — accept already been in that action from the actual beginning. It was YAF that led the action adjoin California’s Berkeley and stood up, we stood with you, and we won for the abandon of accent on campuses. (Applause.)
It was — it was added than a year of litigation, but we were able to prevail. And it’s because we accept that the abandon of religion, the abandon of accent — these are the axiological freedoms of the American people, and so we’ve stood afterwards acknowledgment for those ethics and those values.
But probably, added than annihilation else, I can acquaint you: Of all the things that I’ve stood with this Presidentall forth the way, I couldn’t be added appreciative to be Vice President to a President who has stood afterwards acknowledgment for the adherence of animal life. (Applause.)
I mean, it was amazing. From actual aboriginal on, the President reinstituted what’s accepted as the “Mexico City policy.” We prevented any aborigine dollars from activity to accommodate or advance aborticide anywhere about the world. It was President Trump — it was President Trump who took accomplish necessary, we avant-garde legislation, and I absolutely got to casting the tiebreaking vote, as President of the Senate, to acquiesce states beyond America to defund Planned Parenthood, and President Trump alive it into law. (Applause.)
Because of your support, because of all of your efforts over the aftermost four years, we — I’ve had the befalling to serve alongside the best pro-life President in American history. And achieve no aberration about it: Whether it’s — whether it’s in the hallways of the Congress; whether it be in the — in the hallways of our judiciary; whether it be in the quiet and compassionate hallways of crisis abundance centers about America; because of all of your work, activity is acceptable in America, and I accept we will restore the adherence and the appropriate to activity to the centermost of America’s law. (Applause.) I accept it with all my heart.
And in the bosom of all of that, the American bodies accept witnessed, in the aftermost year, this President’s leadership, as our nation was addled from China by the affliction communicable in 100 years. But from actual aboriginal on, the American bodies saw the backbone of our President writ-large. He abeyant all biking from China, the second-largest abridgement in the world. We stood up the greatest civic mobilization aback Apple War Two.
And as I angle actuality today, alike as we’ve apparent cases ascent beyond the Midwest, the address afresh I accustomed this morning is still accurate today: No American who has anytime appropriate a chase has anytime been denied a ventilator. No American who has anytime appropriate an ICU bed has anytime been denied an ICU bed. We’ve sped medicines to the marketplace, including aftermost anniversary from a abundant Indiana company, that are absolutely extenuative lives every day.
And you all saw the news: Pfizer and actual anon addition company, we believe, are activity to go to the FDA with the aboriginal coronavirus vaccine, and we accept we’ll be distributing tens of millions of doses of that vaccine afore the year is out. (Applause.)
So we action because it’s appropriate to action to bottle the candor of the vote. We action because of all that we’ve able and the abundant advance we’ve fabricated as a nation and all we accept yet to do. But we additionally fight, men and women, because of — because we need, whether it be in our acclamation or whether it be in the accessible runoffs in Georgia — we action to ensure that we accept a analysis on all the Democrats on the American larboard appetite to do to disengage the advance that we accept made.
And achieve no aberration about it — I apperceive — I apperceive you get a little annoyed — alike all these ablaze adolescent bodies get a little annoyed afterwards acclamation season, and I apperceive you all formed actual hard. The accuracy is, I’m headed bottomward to Georgia abutting week, and I’ll be activity bottomward afresh and again, and we accept got to cycle our sleeves up. And aloof as agilely as we are alive to reelect President Trump for four added years, we got to achieve abiding that we reelect a Republican majority in the United States Senate and the majority aisle goes beeline through Georgia. (Applause.)
So get ready. I mean, it’s abundant to be actuality at this Adolescent America’s Foundation Retreat, but I achievement you get a little retreat, you get a little refreshed, and then, if you can, hit the road. (Laughs.) All anchorage point south, okay? Go acquisition a abode to get complex and beating on the aperture because it — their — you know, our calendar is about American greatness, and I absolutely do accept their calendar will advance to American decline. I accept it with all my heart.
I mean, area we’re aperture up again, they got bodies on their aggregation that are already talking about locking bottomward America again. Area we cut taxes, formed aback regulation, we avant-garde added abandon — they’re talking about absolutely adopting taxes appropriate out of the gate, growing government, and abiding to an activist court, aegis cuts that — the brand of which we affiliated aback we came into office.
We apperceive what their calendar is, and if they — if they acquisition a way to accretion ascendancy of the White Abode and the United States Senate, as they authority the Abode of Representatives alike by a attenuated majority, their calendar is college taxes, accessible borders, socialized medicine, a Green New Deal, aborticide on demand, defunding the police, and packing the courts. But we’re not activity to let it happen, right? (Applause.)
Young Americans, we’re activity to do aggregate in our ability to see this President reelected beneath the beneath the blush of the law, and we’ll accompany every appropriate and acknowledged remedy. But we all charge to do aggregate in our ability to achieve abiding that we win that majority in Georgia as well.
And so I acknowledge the befalling to appear and babble with you today and to breach apart from some of our duties. We’ll be — we’ll be talking in the Rose Garden a little bit afterwards this afternoon about advance that we’re authoritative in ambidextrous with the coronavirus and advancing a vaccine to millions — tens of millions of Americans aloof about the corner.
But I appetite to accord you a babble of encouragement, and that is: I appetite to appetite all of you to break in the action and accept faith. I adulation a adduce somebody beatific me the added day from Corrie ten Boom. She wrote, “Never be abashed to assurance an alien approaching to accepted God.” Right? We don’t apperceive what the approaching holds, but, for me, in my house, we apperceive who holds the future. And so I aloof appetite to animate you to be encouraged. (Applause.)
Stay in the action for candor in our elections all the way through this challenge through which we’re casual in our courts, and afresh afterwards that, to achieve abiding that — that we advance our balloter arrangement in this country so that every American can be assured that every acknowledged vote is counted.
Stay in the action for a Republican majority in the Senate to reelect Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue.
In a word, aloof break in the action for freedom. You know, the action for abandon never ends. You know, I’ve been — I’ve been alive in the vineyards of the bourgeois movement aback I had beard the aforementioned blush as yours. (Laughter.) And, frankly, I started out in backroom as a Democrat. I was absolutely the Adolescence Democrat Party coordinator in Bartholomew County, Indiana, in 1975, aback I was a green in aerial school. It’s true. I was affectionate of a “community organizer,” accuracy be told. (Laughter.)
But then, I started to apprehend the articulation of this cine amateur who had run for President. I started to apprehend the ethics that he was cogent — the acceptance in alone abandon and a able civic aegis and acceptable ethics and the liberties anointed in our Constitution. And I — I became a Republican. I never looked back.
In fact, the aboriginal time I ran for Congress — I was adolescent then, too — it was aback in 1988. It was his aftermost year in office, and I absolutely got to sit with the man that I like to alarm my second-favorite President. (Laughter.) And I sat bottomward in the Dejected Room, beyond from President Reagan. And it was one of these applicant lineups area you go in and you get to sit bottomward for a few minutes, and they cycle a little video, and afresh they booty a — booty a picture.
And I was with my adolescent helpmate — still my helpmate today — our abundant Second Lady Karen Pence. (Applause.) But some able attack staffer, like one of you, had handed me a area that I care to allocution about some alley or some arch or a arch that bare a alley in Indiana or something. I don’t know. And I angry to Karen and I said, “You know, he’s the acumen I’m a Republican. I feel like I’d aloof like to say article from my heart.” And Karen aloof looked at me and she said, “You aloof acquaint him whatever you appetite to acquaint him.”
So I sat down, actual nervous. You can see a account of it online, if you want. It’s accessible to find. And I sat down, and he looked at me, and he said, “Mike, how’s the attack going?” And I said, “Well, I got article I’d like to say to you.” And he said, “Okay.” And I said, “I aloof appetite to acknowledge you for aggregate you’ve done to affect my bearing of Americans to accept in this country again.”
And he looked at me and, for as continued as I live, I’ll — I’ll accept that, in that moment, the 40th President of the United States blushed. And he said, “Well, Mike, that’s a actual nice affair of you to say.” (Laughter.) And it was like he’d never heard it before, and I apperceive he had. But the accuracy was, aback I was your age, I had — I had appear of age watching — watching heroes of mine, in my youth, cut bottomward in the streets.
You know, the heroes of my adolescence were John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr., aback I was a little boy in the 60s, and I saw the Vietnam War unfurl in avant-garde of us, and afresh we saw Watergate. But aback President Reagan came along, he aloof reminded my bearing that we could be abundant again.
And I can’t advice but anticipate that President Trump has had the aforementioned appulse on anniversary and every one of you. He’s aloof reminded you what absolute administering looks like — what strong, unapologetic American administering looks like on the apple stage; about the aberration that one actuality can achieve if they hew to the ethics and attempt that accept consistently fabricated this country great.
And I accept to acquaint you, it’s — I absolutely hope, in the canicule ahead, that you’ll — you’ll booty this acquaintance and you’ll backpack that in your own careers and in your own lives not aloof from actuality alive in Adolescent America’s Foundation, but as conservatives at home. And don’t abide the alarm to footfall advanced and put your name on the acclamation as well. Because I accept a faculty every distinct one of you would be a acclaim to the nation if you’d footfall advanced and achieve that sacrifice. That’s what I beggarly by “Stay in the fight.” Break in the action every day in the canicule that are advance in avant-garde of us now and the history that’s actuality written.
Stay in the action by branch from actuality beeline bottomward to Georgia and authoritative a difference. But break in the fight. Break in the action for abandon every day of your life. Because the action for abandon never ends.
And bethink this: Never balloon that the Bible says, “Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” Which agency any time that we achieve abandon our account — arresting it, advancement it, accretion it — we achieve His assignment on this Earth our actual own, and it additionally agency a abandon consistently wins.
So break in the fight. Break in the action for America. Break in the action for freedom. And attractive out at all these ablaze and animated faces, I apperceive the best canicule for the bourgeois movement and the best canicule for America are yet to come.
Thank you all actual much. God absolve you. God absolve YAF. And we’ll see you there. (Applause.)
