Transcript for Steve Scalise delivers speech at 2020 RNC
I'm congressman Steve still leads. We're facing some tough challenges in America. This isn't the first time we've been here. I worked closely with Donald Trump over the last few years if there's one constant theme to how we approach is problems. It's how much he cares about the hard working people that Washington left behind. I seen this firsthand. After it was shot on a baseball field by a leftist gunman first responders rushed me to a hospital where I've battled for my life. That same night Donald Trump came to the hospital along with First Lady maligning a trump. They console my wife Jennifer. They were there from my family in my darkest hours. Donald Trump would call to check on me throughout the following weeks just to see how was doing. That's the kind of person he is that's the side of Donald Trump that the media will never show you. Look there's a lot at stake. This is an election between a party that wants to burn down the foundations of our country to the ground and a party that wants to rebuild and protect our great nation. The left wants to defund the police. This is personal to me. I wouldn't be here without the bravery and heroism of the men and women in law enforcement who saved my life. President trump stands with those brave men and women. Joseph Biden has embraced the less than seen mission to defund them. There won't be in America believed to our children and grandchildren without those brave law enforcement officers in first responders. Joseph Biden's made a career in Washington for 47 years promising things he's never delivered. In just three short years president trump has delivered huge wins for American families. While Joseph Biden made hollow promises when he chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee Donald Trump took action and delivered criminal justice reform. Joseph Biden claims to care about the working man. But millions of good manufacturing jobs were shipped overseas during the Obama Biden years took countries like China. Donald Trump brought those jobs back. I've seen how deeply president trump cares about rebuilding our evaporating middle class. President trump pledged to give the forgotten men and women of America or real shot at the American dream and again he delivered. The lowest unemployment rate in over fifty years. Women creating small business is at record pace wages rising the fastest by the way for lowest income levels. What can Joseph Biden say to that. What is Joseph Biden done in his 47 years in Washington that can compare to that. President trump has delivered for the hard working people of this great nation. It's gonna take that kind of bold leadership to get us out of this Covert crisis. After president trump saved lives by shutting down flights from China in Europe. He's now focusing the full weight of the government on a revolutionary claim to cure this virus by cutting red tape in empowering scientists to create a vaccine. This is visionary leadership and action at a time when we can't afford another 47 years of hollow promises. America's been through tough times before. Who better to lead us out of these times than the president who already built the strongest economy our country has ever seen. Donald Trump did it before. Donald Trump will deliver for us again. Got bless you and god bless these United States of America.
