TRANSCRIPT: Tim Kaine tells voters to reject Donald Trump’s bigotry, racial discrimination

At a voter registration event in Tallahassee, Florida on August 26, Tim Kaine discussed why it is more important than ever that we reject Donald Trump’s campaign built on prejudice and paranoia. Kaine told the crowd at the Historically Black College and University, Florida A & M University about Hillary Clinton‘s powerful case that the stakes in this election have never been higher, “Donald Trump values are not American values.  They’re not our values.  And we’ve got to do all we can to fight to push back and win…”

As the kick-off for the campaign’s HBCU tour focused on student voter registration and mobilization, Kaine lauded Florida A & M University for its student activism. He stressed the importance of taking part come this November in order to renounce Trump’s bigotry once and for all, “Florida will be one of the closest, possibly the closest, battleground states this election, and your vote will really matter.”

Kaine’s remarks as transcribed are below:

“[…] women’s equality. It’s Women’s Equality Day because on August 26th, 1920, the federal government certified that enough states had ratified the 19th Amendment to the Constitution giving women the right to vote. And 96 years later, we’re about to make the first woman president of the United States.

And that’s what’s so very exciting for me to be on the ticket. I’ll just say, when Hillary asked me about a month ago, I was so proud to work with somebody – President Obama said this about her at the convention, that she would be the most qualified individual to be a nominee of a major party in the history of this country, and I am proud to be a partner with Hillary Clinton. Like a lot of strong men in this country, my political career has been built on a foundation of support from strong women like my wife, campaign managers, cabinet secretaries, the agency heads, voters, donors, volunteers, and now I’m a strong man ready to play that supportive role to make sure our strong woman Hillary Clinton is our next president. Do we all feel the same way?
