Transcript for Sen. Rand Paul delivers remarks at 2020 RNC
Good evening I'm senator Rand Paul from Kentucky. Donald Trump and I met many years ago before he was running for anything. But a first met him our call being struck by how down to earth he was he seemed like just a normal guy. Okay and normal valid his own plane and helicopter but who's counting. I was planning a medical mission trip to Guatemalan to perform charity eye surgeries that we needed money to fund the trip. Donald Trump offer to help and immediately came through for us. Not only did he support my medical mission to Guatemala and but he also contributed to another mission trip to Haiti a year later. We performed hundreds of cataract surgeries in both countries. Nothing is more amazing than removing the bandages from a person's eyes and watching them as they see their loved ones again. Donald Trump helped me make that happen. A few years later who we were opponents both running for president. And we all know how that turned out. I'm proud of the job Donald Trump has done as president I don't always agree with him. But our occasional policy differences are far outweigh bar significant agreements. But more important is simple agreement his accomplishment. President trump gets things done when some in congress wanted to so called revenue neutral tax plan. Donald Trump and I work together to make sure that it was a true tax cut. I brought president trump an idea for better or less expensive health insurance called association health plans. Donald Trump over turn to years of red tape and bureaucrats. And he made it happened. While others talked about criminal justice reform the president trump actually signed the first step backed. Stuff first real reform and a generation. And one that sought to undo the harm that others like Joseph Biden have done. For those of us who lament the Biden crime bill that locked up a generation of young black men remember. That Biden bragged about a bill that still reeks Havoc among people of color. I'm supporting president trump because he believes as I do. A strong America cannot fight an endless wars. We must not continue to leave our blood and treasure in Middle East quagmire us. I flew with him to Dover Air Force Base to honor to soldiers whose remains were coming home from Afghanistan. I'll never forget that evening. I can tell you the president not only felt the pain and these families but that a president is committed to ending this war. President trump is the first president in a generation to seek to end the war rather than star one. He intends to end the war in Afghanistan he is bringing our men and women home. Madison once wrote no nation can preserve its freedom in the midst of continuous warfare. I'm proud to finally see a president who agrees with that. Compare president trump with the disastrous record of Joseph Biden who has consistently called for more war room. Joseph Biden voted for the Iraq War which president trump has long called the worst in geopolitical mistake of our generation. I fear Biden will choose war again he supported the war in Serbia Syria. Libya. Joseph Biden will continue to spill our blood and treasure president trump will bring our heroes home. If you hate war like I hate war. If you want us to quit sending fifty billion dollars every year to Afghanistan. To build better roads and bridges instead of building them here at home. You need to support president trump. For another term. So to our soldiers and their families join me in supporting president trump. To those have you who want lower taxes and better less expensive health care to join me in supporting president trump. To those of you want to stand up and fight this socialist poisoning our schools and burning our cities. Join me in supporting president trump. Let's rebuild America together.
