Transcript for Maine lobsterman speaks at 2020 RNC
My name is Jason Joyce and emanates generation lofts a fisherman from swans island Maine. I make my living from loft sufficient voice to farming and providing eco tourists. In the beautiful waters near Acadia national park where I have over 200 years of family history. I have to confess. I do support trump in 2016. Skeptical that he shared my conservative views I expected him to flip flop on this campaign promises. But he is follow through on his promises including last week when he brokered a deal to end European Union tariffs of 8% on main live lobsters. And up to 20% on Maine lobster products which is great news remains loss to men and women. I live in an island with 370 residents and launching us how we provide for our families. Maine's lobster men are true environmentalists we practice conservation every day if we didn't would be putting ourselves out of business. Four years ago the Obama Biden administration using antiquities act to order thousands of square miles of ocean off limits to commercial fisherman. They did it to cater to environmental activists. Although Maine's lobster men don't fish there Obama's executive order offended as greatly it circumvented the fisheries council's input. Pres and trump reversed that decision reinstating the rules that allow stakeholder input. And he supports a process that seeks in respects fisherman's views. As long as trump is president. Fishing and was like mine while the voice. But it Biden wins could be controlled by the environmental extremists who want to circumvent longstanding rules. In impose radical changes that hurt our coastal communities. I strongly support prison trumps reelection when he sees something isn't right he's fearless in fixing it. He listens to work in people he nominates judges who respect the constitution and the right to life. He keeps his word like eliminating the European tariffs and move in the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. I hope you'll join me this time in voting for president trump stand up for your country thank you.
