Trump's Remarks on Protecting America's Seniors; Fort Myers, FL; October 16, 2020

This was on Trump's official schedule. It was not considered a campaign event. You get the bill. As for VA Choice:

Veterans' Access to Care through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act of 2014

REMARKS

Remarks by President Trump on Protecting America’s Seniors | Fort Myers, FL
HEALTHCARE

Issued on: October 16, 2020

Caloosa Sound Convention Center & Amphitheater
Fort Myers, Florida

1:58 P.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. What a nice group.

AUDIENCE: USA! USA! USA!

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you very much.

AUDIENCE: Four more years! Four more years! Four more years!

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much. Please.

We’re going to be talking to our great senior citizens. That’s what I’m here for today. (Applause.) We love our senior citizens.

{snip}

As I fight to protect our amazing seniors from the China virus, I’m also fighting to protect you from another danger, one which threatens everything we cherish, value, and worked our entire lives to build and to defend. As we gather today, seniors are under threat from a radical-left movement that seeks to destroy the American way of life. We’re not going to allow it. (Applause.)

And you know one thing: Sleepy Joe can do nothing about it. (Laughter.)

The left has been taken over by socialists and Marxists and extremists, and they have. They want to transform our nation into a country that would no longer be recognizable. And their agenda will shatter America’s seniors. Their plan to delay the vaccine, delay therapies, and prolong the pandemic will cost thousands and thousands of lives — will be horrifying for our country.

{snip}

The left is coming after me because I’m defending you, and that’s true. That’s why they come after me every day. (Applause.) But we caught them on the Russian hoax. We finally caught them after two and a half years — the Russian hoax. (Applause.) Turned out to be the exact opposite: They’re the ones that were playing with Russia. That was a beauty. Hillary — Crooked Hillary.

AUDIENCE MEMBER: Lock her up!

THE PRESIDENT: No, they’re the ones.

AUDIENCE MEMBERS: Lock her up! Lock her up!

THE PRESIDENT: Yeah. I agree with you. I used to just be quiet. I agree with you 100 percent. They paid — they paid — millions and millions of dollars they paid. And they tried to show it. It was the greatest hoax and the greatest political crime in the history of our country. That’s what they committed.

{snip}

Wouldn’t it be terrible if Sleepy Joe took this over — the system that I’ve created? And you people will say, “Man, has he been a great President. Look at what he’s done.” Like, as an example, transparency starts on January 1st. I said to my people, “You couldn’t start it, like, in August — back?” They said, “Sir, you have to go statutorily here, here, here.” I say, “Yeah, but I better win this damn election.” Because can you imagine, Mayor? He’ll be saying, “Boy, I’m getting a lot of credit. What the hell did Trump do? This is unbelievable.” And I promise you they won’t give the credit to us, will they? Huh? No. But I think we’re not going to have to worry about it. I hope that. So get out and vote, vote, vote. (Applause.)

To care for our nation’s veterans, I signed into law VA Choice and VA Accountability. Nobody thought that would be possible. (Applause.) Huh? Nobody thought that would be possible. And we’ve also invested billions and billions of dollars in research and innovative treatments for Alzheimer’s disease, kidney disease, sickle cell disease, AIDS, cancer, and many other illnesses.

{snip}

We have — now our military — we have the greatest weapons on Earth. We are the envy of the world. We have the greatest weapons — the missiles, rockets, tanks, the tankers, the freight- — freighters, the boats, the ships, the jet fighters — F-35s, the F-18s, F-16s. Nobody has the equipment that we have in the world; not even close — (applause) — even the hypersonic missiles.

You know, under the Obama administration, they sol- — they stole our plans for hypersonic. That’s the super-duper. I call them the “super-duper missiles,” the ones that go so fast, you can’t even see them. And now we have that. You probably read about it last night. We have the fastest, by far, in the world.

{snip}

For our nation, for our great seniors, and for our beloved children and grandchildren, the best is yet to come. Thank you. God bless you, and God bless America. Thank you very much. (Applause.)

1. To a slightly informed senior.

To a slightly informed senior, if the context is in line with the speech, that is about as dumb as it gets.
