President Donald Trump took the stage in New Hampshire on Saturday after he received endorsements from New Hampshire's largest coalition of conservative activists, the 603 Alliance, as well as ten New Hampshire elected officials. He also holds a 32-point lead over his closest contender in the state, Nikki Haley.
Trump was joined by Abbey Gate Gold Star families at his rally in Derry, NH. "There is no greater act of selfless service than defending America’s God-given freedoms and liberty," he said in a statement. "The traditions of excellence and integrity demonstrated by our men and women in uniform never fade after leaving the Military—once a Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine, Coast Guardsman, or Guardian—always."
"As you know," he told the crowd in Derry, "today is Veterans Day. Let’s express our eternal gratitude to every veteran in this room—and every proud veteran across the great state of New Hampshire." Trump is well-known for his support of both former and current service members alike. The former president has famously stood up against various encroaching leftist ideologies in the US Military.
"We are also honored to be joined by the Gold Star family members of Marines who lost their lives in the Afghanistan withdrawal," he said. These are the families of the 13 service members who lost their lives during Joe Biden's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan in August 2021.
"The veterans who have served this nation in uniform enlisted their lives in defense of our families, our freedom, and our great American flag," he said, "and when I am back in the White House, they will once again have the loyalty, the respect, and the support they earned and so dearly deserve."
"After years of scandal, betrayal, and neglect under the Obama-Biden administration," Trump continues, "I signed the VA Accountability Act—allowing us to tell the sadists who mistreated our veterans, 'You’re fired.'"
"I also signed V.A. Choice and made it permanent so that veterans can get medical care at the private healthcare provider of their choice," he said. There has been a great deal of concern over the VA treatment of veterans as veterans continue to take their own lives in record numbers.
The former president also said that "Our Veterans will never stop fighting for the America we cherish" and said that the "full measure of your sacrifice and your family’s dedication in support of your service may not be fully understood and appreciated, but it will never be forgotten."
"Under the Trump administration, we lived by the motto promises made, promises kept—and there is no more solemn pledge than a promise to America’s veterans," he said.
"Unfortunately, with Crooked Joe in the White House, our veterans are once again being backstabbed and betrayed by their government."
"Crooked Joe gutted our historic V.A. reforms, and fought to reinstate 5,000 V.A. employees that I terminated, or give them full back-pay at a cost of up to $200 million dollars," he said.
"But instead of wasting $200 million dollars on the worst V.A. employees, when I am president, I will ask Congress to take every penny of that money and finally build a brand new state-of-the-art full-service V.A. hospital right here in New Hampshire."
"I will also make it a personal mission to completely eradicate Veterans’ Homelessness in America," Trump promised. "In the past 3 years, Biden has spent over $1 billion dollars to put up illegal aliens in hotels—meanwhile, we have 33,000 homeless American veterans. On Day One, I will sign an executive order to cut off Biden’s spigot of money for the shelter and transport of illegal aliens, and we will redirect a portion of the savings to provide shelter and treatment for our own homeless veterans."
"Crooked Joe," Trump continued, "puts bureaucrats first and illegal aliens first—I will put veterans first and America first every single time." Bureaucracy is what led to military recruitment ads featuring soldiers dressed as drag queens and enlisted service members discussing their anxiety problems.
"In addition to being Veterans Day, today is also Armistice Day—the anniversary of the end of the First World , a conflict that wrecked entire nations and killed over twenty million people. This anniversary should remind us all of why it is so important to once again have a president who will deliver peace through strength," Trump continued.
"World War Three has never been closer than it is right now under Crooked Joe Biden," Trump said. "I stand before you today as the only candidate in either party who can make this promise: I will prevent World War Three." This is one of his most essential and charged campaign promises, and it's based on his experience in office."
"I know the players, I know the job, and I alone in this primary have borne the burden of having troops in harm’s way as Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces."
"The neo-cons, globalists, and warmongers in this race like to talk tough," he said, taking aim at the other candidates who trail behind him in polling by double digits, "but they are WAY over their heads, and they don’t know the first thing about dealing with President Putin, President Xi, or Chairman Kim Jong Un."
"To me, Peace Through Strength is not just a political slogan, it is a moral duty—and it is my commitment to you, the American People. As president, I will restore American Strength, Power, and Prestige—and I will be your peacemaker in the Oval Office," he said.
"Under Biden, our adversaries see the weakness and foolishness of America’s leaders. When President Xi sits across the table from Crooked Joe, as he will Wednesday in San Francisco, he will see a feeble and compromised politician who can be humiliated and steamrolled." Biden is set to meet with Xi next week in what have been touted as key talks between the two leaders.
"No one respects or fears this administration," Trump said, evidenced by the increasing global tensions where the US is often the but of the criticism, "and it’s leading to danger, death, destruction, war, chaos, and bedlam all over the world."
"So whether you are a Democrat, Republican or Independent," he told the crowd, "if you don’t want your sons and daughters drafted to fight and die in distant foreign lands, if you don’t want your nation wrecked, if you don’t want your economy destroyed, if you don’t want American blood and American treasure squandered in a needless global war, then your choice in this election is simple: you must vote for President Donald J. Trump."
Trump dug into his record, which many Americans have longed to see repeated. "For four straight years under the Trump administration, I kept America safe, I kept Israel safe, I kept Ukraine safe, and I kept the world safe. I completely obliterated the ISIS territorial caliphate. I terminated its founder and leader, Al Baghdadi. I also ended the world’s top terrorist, Kassem Solemani."
"When I was president," he said with relish, "our enemies knew that if you try to kill our citizens, we kill you—if you spill a drop of American blood, we spill a gallon of yours." Since the conflict in Israel has broken out after Hamas' attacked that nation on October 7, activists and progressive pundits have called for proportionate responses from the tiny nation. But in Trump's view, the only response is one that is disproportionate and so effective that a nation's enemies dare not attack again.
"We do it not because we want to start wars, but because we want to prevent wars," Trump said.
"I withdrew from the disastrous Iran Nuclear Deal, and left Iran weak, broke, and desperate to make a deal. I had China, Russia, and North Korea totally in check—because under my leadership, America was feared by our adversaries, and we were respected by everyone all over the world."
"I fully rebuilt the U.S. military, created Space Force, and I was the first president in decades who didn’t start a war—instead, I got us out of endless wars and brought our troops back home."
"And with the historic Abraham Accords, I even made peace in the Middle East," he said. This was a deal that saw, for the first time, Arab nations willing to work with Israel on economic possibilities. Even now, the UAE is holding firm in partnerships with Israel that were facilitated by those Accords.
"Together, we saved America once before, and we will save America once again."
Trump then made an incredibly bold promise. "Before I even arrive at the Oval Office, shortly after I win the presidency, I will have the horrible war between Russia and Ukraine settled." He has said that he would be able to end this conflict, and here he promised an even better potentiality.
"To protect our citizens from foreign threats, I will build a state-of-the-art missile defense shield," Trump said.
"This is far more than a campaign—we are all involved in a great political movement, the greatest in the history of our country."
"After years of betrayals of New Hampshire workers, together, we ended the NAFTA disaster, the worst trade deal ever made, and replaced it with the brand-new U.S.M.C.A., the best trade deal ever made," he said.
"I took on Communist China like no administration in history—bringing hundreds of billions of dollars pouring into our treasury, when no other president had gotten even 10 cents from China. I then gave the farmers and New England Lobstermen $28 billion dollars straight out of the tariffs I took in from China." China played a big role in the recent GOP debate, but none of the candidates had this kind of perspective.
"We achieved the most secure border in U.S. history. We built over 500 miles of border wall, and got Mexico to give us 28,000 soldiers free of charge." In his first term, he promised a border wall, and he delivered. While nearly 10 million illegal immigrants have poured into the US since Biden took office, under Trump's last year less than 500,000 apprehensions were made.
"On my first day back in the Oval Office, I will terminate every Open Borders policy of the Biden administration, stop the invasion on our southern border, and begin the largest domestic deportation operation in American history."
"I will immediately restore and expand the Trump Travel Ban on entry from terror-plagued countries, and I will implement strong ideological screening for ALL immigrants: If you hate America, if you want to abolish Israel, if you sympathize with jihadists, then we don’t want you in our country, and you are NOT getting in!" This is especially poignant as both the UK and Canada have issued concerns that terrorist cells could be operating in country.
"We will stop Joe Biden’s inflation disaster and rebuild the greatest economy in the history of the world."
"This is what we must do to restore our country to greatness. The USA is a mess, Israel is under attack, our economy is cratering. Inflation is out of control. China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea have formed together as a menacing and destructive coalition. Our currency is crashing and will soon no longer be the world standard, which will be our greatest defeat in 200 years," Trump said.
"If you took the ten worst presidents in the history of the United States, and added them up, they would not have done near the destruction to our country as Joe Biden and the Biden administration have done."
"We are a failing nation. We are a nation in decline. And now these radical left lunatics want to interfere with our elections by using law enforcement. It’s totally corrupt and we can’t let it happen."
"If you want to Save America from Crooked Joe, then get every patriot you know, and get them out to deliver a massive victory in the New Hampshire primary!"
"2024 is our final battle. With you at my side, we will demolish the Deep State, we will expel the warmongers from our government, we will drive out the globalists, we will cast out the Communists, Marxists, and Fascists, we will throw off the sick political class that hates our country, we will rout the fake news media, we will evict Joe Biden from the White House, and we will finish the job once and for all," Trump said.
"The Great Silent Majority is rising like never before—and under our leadership, the Forgotten Man and Woman Will Be Forgotten No Longer! With your help, your love, and your vote, we will put America first!"
