Thank you, thank you

Following Rudy Giuliani and Newt Gingrich, let us make this fundamentally clear. On behalf of myself, Bill Richardson, Patrick Kennedy, who has been delayed here today, we stand here as Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives.

We may have our differences, but listening to my voice in Tehran, make no mistake. Every one of us stands behind Donald Trump and seeing the destruction of the mullahs to the end

So to the mullahs, and so to the mullahs. Let’s make the situation clear. You are in the fighting ring of history. We stand with the people, that's rough. We stand with the MEK. We stand with the people in the streets of Iran fighting for freedom. We stand for freedom. You stand to defend your corruption, your oppression, the denial of freedom. One of us will win. One will lose. One will die. One will live. And I'm betting on us every day of the week

And if you think, and if you think that our internal divisions mean that a Democratic Party one day will return to power to save you, you are betting on the wrong horse. We stand with President Trump and destroying the regime.

 Finally, finally to those brave souls on the streets of the cities of Tehran. Look at Ashraf. Being Iranian does not mean you have to be poor. It doesn't mean that your children have to have no future. It doesn't mean that you have to live in oppression. Being Iranian still means you can be prosperous, and free, and happy, and have a future for your children in your lives. There are free Iranians. There are three thousands of them in Albania and there's going to be 80 million of them soon. Thank you all
