This year our voters spoke clearly on two critical issues in out primaries. Trade and immigration. They affirmed. Dollars bra and his positions. They have. Obama trade. And I demand that you mom called system of emigration. That protects there a safety and their financial. Well being. Okay. Average Americans have been up first dinar. That something is wrong what this economy. I'm middle class is steadily declining. With our African American and Hispanic communities. Being not hurt the most. But the Washington establishment the media in big corporations. Have been in denial. Fellow Republicans we must understand. That being Johns middle class Americans today. Are 4000 dollars less per year that in 1999. This is an economic disaster. We're on the wrong track and the American people know him. Yet. Yeah Hillary Clinton's plan is more of the sign. Mark government. Mark taxes. More regulation. Mark illegal immigration. And moral dec. She has been a champion of global is trade agreements. But the facts are end. They have not work for the American people. When those agreements were signed the President Clinton and Obama. Promised not dangerous trade deficits with China and career would be released to.
