Short transcript of Ingraham's remarks:

"My friends, this is the most important election since 1980. I worked for Ronald Reagan and I remember, before he came along we had, you know, things were bad. But today, we have stagnating wages, skyrocketing health care costs, doubling of the debt, the threat of ISIS and the rise of China, and the Democrats' answer to all that is to nominate the woman who helped orchestrate America's decline."

"Think about it. That has to be some cruel joke."

"I don't want to sit around and tell my kids someday about how great America used be."

"We need a president who believes in the Constitution and who will fight for us, not against us. Treat us like an ally, not an enemy... We are not the enemy. We are the people. We are not your servants, you are ours."

"To all my friends in the press, I see you, hello... You all know why, in your heart, Donald Trump won the Republican nomination. You know it. You know why? Because he dared to call out the phonies, the frauds and the corruption that has gone uncovered for too long."

"Donald Trump respects us enough to tell us the truth about what has happened to our country," she said. "On things like immigration, trade, our status in the world. Even in the face of unfair criticism and sheer hatred."
