African American children are living in poverty. While 58%. Of African American youth are now not employed. Two million more are Latinos. Are in poverty today. Then when President Obama took his oath of office less than eight years ago. Another fourteen million people have left the workforce entirely. Household incomes are down. More than 4000. Dollars since the year 2000 at sixteen. Years ago. Howard trade deficit. In goods reached nearly I think if this think of this Howard trade deficit is 800. Billion dollars yet. They give back. 800. Billion dollars. Last year alone we've got to fix that. And I. The the it. The budget is no better. President Obama has almost doubled our national debt. To more than nineteen trillion dollars and growing. And yet. What are we have to show for. Our routes and bridges are falling apart. Our airports are Third World conditions. And 43 million Americans aren't food stamps. Now let us consider. The state of affairs abroad. Not hardly I have our citizens endured. Domestic disaster. But they delay. Through one international. Humiliation. After not there one after I'm not care. We all remember. The images of our sailors being forced to their knees. By their Iranian captors at gunpoint. This is just prior to the signing of the Iran deal which gave back to Iran. One 150. Billion dollars and gave us absolutely. Nothing. It will go down.

That President Obama top truly regrets. Her bed instincts. And her bad judgment. Something ploy did out. By Bernie Sanders. Are what caused so many of the disasters. Unfolding today. Let's re view the record. The it. In 2009. Pretty Hiller and ice this was not even on the map. Libby dole has stated that Egypt was peaceful. Iraq where is seeing and really a big big reduction in violence. Iran was being choked by sanctions. Cereal was somewhat under control. After four years of Hillary Clinton water we happen. I shoes has spread. Across the region. And the entire world. Libya is in ruins and our ambassador and his staff act we're left helpless to dime. At the hands of savage killers. Egypt was turned over. Did the radical Muslim Brotherhood forcing the military. To retake control. Iraq. Is in chaos Iran is on the path. To nuclear weapons Syria is in golf in his civil war. And a refugee crisis now threatens the west. After fifteen years of wars in the Middle East after trillions of dollars spent. And thousands of lives lost this situation is worse than it has ever. Bin before. This is a legacy of Hillary Clinton. Disruption. Terrorism. And weakness. MI. But Hillary Clinton's legacy. Does not have to be America's legacy. The problems we face now. Poverty and violence at home warrant destruction abroad. Will last only as long. As we continue relying on this same politicians who created them in the first place. A change in leadership.
