DONALD TRUMP: Thank you very much, and we love you, and I can tell you that from the bottom of my heart. This has been an incredible four years. We've accomplished so much together. I want to thank all of my family, and my friends, and my staff, and so many other people for being here. I want to thank you for your effort, your hard work. People have no idea how hard this family worked. I worked and they worked for you.

DONALD TRUMP: What else has to be said, right?

AUDIENCE: Thank you, Melania.

DONALD TRUMP: But what we've done-- that's true, honey, great job. We also got tax cuts, the largest tax cut and reform in the history of our country by far.

[PEOPLE CHEERING] I hope they don't raise your taxes. But if they do, I told you so. And if you look at the regulations, which I consider the regulation cuts to be maybe even more important That's why we have such good and have had such good job numbers. The job numbers have been absolutely incredible. When we started, had we not been hit by the pandemic, we would have had numbers that would never have been seen. Already, our numbers are the best ever. If you look at what happened until February, a year ago, our numbers were at a level that nobody had ever seen before.
