A: So, so nice. So they say we set a record here tonight. Now, I'm going to make the people outside angry, but they love me and I love them. And we have over 1,000 people outside, we have hundreds of people in the second auditorium. But you people got the good real estate, right? You got the good real estate. So this has been an amazing period of time. I know it’s very early, but the polls have been through the roof, every one of them. Every one of them because and I don’t know if it’s for me or if it’s for the message or maybe it’s a combination of both, but, you know, I brought back a term that hasn’t been used in a long time. It’s called the silent majority. There’s a tremendous silent majority that politicians have taken advantage of. I mean, they have taken advantage of the people of this country long enough. They’re largely incompetent, except when it comes to getting reelected. That’s what they do. And look, who knows them better than me? I’ve contributed to everybody. And who knows them better than me? They’re great at one thing, don’t make any waves, get reelected, serve it out, then get reelected again. And I see it all the time. I’ve been watching it for so many years, and I personally am sick and tired of it. So backstage I met some of the vets the greatest people we have in this country. And they’ve been mistreated, they’ve been treated like third class citizens and it’s gonna stop. It’s gonna stop. You look at these senators and the congressmen, they ride around they’re like kings. They think great, oh isn’t it great? They come they make speeches nothing ever happens. So two weeks ago on Wednesday they had the longest waits in reception rooms and reception areas in the history of the Veteran’s Administration. People waiting three days, four days, five days to see a doctor, to see a doctor. So we are gonna straighten that. It’s called management, it’s called management. That’s all it is. The military is going to be so strong in this country that nobody is gonna mess around with the United States. That I can tell you. That I can tell you. Nobody. You know, over the last few weeks Jeb Bush, in favor of Common Core, weak on immigration, not good on military. Can you believe thought the Iraq War was a good thing. I mean, look you can make a mistake. I was against it for a long time. I'm the most militaristic person in this room, but you have to know when to use it. You have to know when to use it. Think about it. We spent two trillion dollars in Iraq, and by the way China is taking out a lot of the oil, just so you understand. ISIS may have it and Iran may have it, but China is taking out a lot of the oil. Can you imagine? We spent we never do anything right with China. We spend two trillion dollars, thousands of lives of great people, mostly great, young, beautiful people, wounded warriors who I love all over the place. All over the place. Not treated properly, by the way, and we have nothing. And Iran is taking over Iraq, and the parts that they want to give up they’re giving oil to ISIS. So ISIS has the oil, and you remember when I said you shouldn’t go in? And in fact, just check it. Reuters wrote an article big article in 2004 that Trump don’t go in because you’re gonna ruin the balance. You had Iran and Iraq they were the same they were twins. They would have wars for years wars boom one goes this way one goes that way one, and I said if you take out one the other one is gonna take over. Well, we took out one and look at the mess we have. We’ve destabilized the Middle East and it’s a mess. And Jeb Bush couldn’t he didn’t know the difference. He couldn’t answer a question was a Iraq a good thing or a bad thing? It’s all right to say they made a mistake. Finally, after going to his pollster who he pays a fortune to by the way, after five days he said it was a bad thing. Okay. So let’s accept that that’s okay. Then the other day I'm watching yesterday, and he’s saying well, we got Saddam Hussein out, didn’t we? I mean, I'm not a fan of Saddam Hussein, but he ran the place. And he had no weapons of mass destruction. And now instead of Saddam Hussein we have far more brutal. We have ISIS and we will have Iran because they’re already making deals. Two weeks ago I read where the leaders of Iraq are visiting the leaders of Iran. What did we get out this? What do we get? We have stupid leadership. Now if you remember so I didn’t want to go in I was right. I didn’t want to go in I was right, but then we were in. And it was bad, and there were still bombings all but it was bad, but we’re in. At some point we have to go out, right? I mean, we can’t stay there forever. We have to rebuild this country. We have to rebuild our country. You know, we have to. Our bridges are falling apart, our roads are a mess, our schools, our highways, everything. It’s a mess. Our infra- and who’s better at infrastructure than Trump, okay? Okay? So look at some point we have to get out. They talk about the surge, the surge. Remember Bush’s brother he said the war is over, we’ve taken over, you know, like there were two days later it was a disaster. Now, Obama said it with Yemen. He announced Yemen was a total victory, and then like three months later it was like a disaster. And we don’t have Yemen. We don’t have anything. We send over to our allies if you call them that. They don’t even know what they are, there’s just no word for them. Okay? Iraq isn’t even a country. Iraq is a bunch of corrupt people that sort of string something together. It’s not a country. But we send over to our allies 2,500 Humvees. So when I heard 2,500 I thought it was a typo in the New York Times. I said they mean 25, they mean two-and-a-half. They mean 250 maybe, that’s a lot. So these are 2,500 Humvees armor plated all over so when the bombs go off you don’t lose your legs and you don’t lose your life and you don’t lose your arms. Really great vehicles. One shot is fired and these guys run away and the enemy picks up 2,500. Now think of it, think of it. So we need the right thinking. And I said, and some people say what a terrible statement he made. Because when we had to leave, we had to leave. You know, you can talk about surge but at some point we have to leave. We can’t stay there forever. And it would loosen up some of these ridiculous rules. We have so much oil under our own feet. We don’t need them anymore for those things because of new technologies. New technology. So we’re gonna leave and I say leave, but take the oil. Do you remember that? Did anyone ever hear that me saying that? I'm saying it all the time. I’ve been saying it for years. Take the oil. And I watched these guys on television, political people, many of them are with the administration and I think they mean well. But they don’t have a clue. They would say isn’t that silly? Mr. Trump says take the oil. Well, you know who has the oil now? Iran, ISIS, everybody has it but us. We’re the only ones without the oil. It’s hard to believe. We need General Douglas MacArthur, who was I thought he was great. You know, to this day the highest academic record I'm big into school and academics. I love it. I went to the greatest school. You had to be really smart to get into that school, The Wharton School of Finance. But you got to be really smart, and that was before I was Trump. You know, that was before I was Trump. But you have to be really smart, that’s like the hardest one, but you know, even then by the way. But General Douglas MacArthur to this day was the greatest student in the history of West Point. Plus he had the look, he had the whole deal. He was a General. I don’t see it now so much. I don’t want to knock any of the generals, but I’ll see some of these guys come on, can we defeat ISIS? I don’t think so. I don’t want to use names but, you know, he’s sort of retiring. Then you have General George Patton. So do you think General Patton when President Obama, remember not so long ago he said we’re going to attack a certain city. And he said in two weeks we’re going to attack this city, and we’re going to attack it from the front. And we’re gonna use drones, and we’re gonna use this, now in the meantime the enemy is saying hmm, bing bing. And it was brutal. It turned out to be a brutal situation. And I said you know that’s great that’s camouflage. What a smart thing he’s doing, because he’s probably going to do the opposite. Well, in two weeks we attacked. We attacked from the it was the craziest thing I’ve ever seen. And it was a terrible, you know, something that should have taken 24 hours was like months. And I said I wonder what General MacArthur and General Patton, just to name two of the great ones, are doing right now in their grave. You know what they’re doing? Spinning. They’re spinning, they’re saying I don’t believe it. I don’t believe it. So we have such a great country, but we’ve gone down so far. China yesterday, I'm big for the world of financial. And I tell you CNN did a poll. And I was through the roof on the economy, I was like really high. I have to be exactly accurate because otherwise I’ll have a front page story that Donald Trump gave false, but I mean I was many times number two. I was through the roof on leadership and that’s a pretty important subject right? Leadership. I killed everybody on leadership, right? I did great on the military, and I actually think the military would be just as good as the economic for me personally. I think I would be so good on the oh would I be tough. Oh, these poor people. I would be creating things that nobody would be playing with us, nobody. Nobody. And I don’t necessarily mean soldiers. I mean, and we love our soldiers, but I mean, you know, we have weaponry that’s obsolete. We have nuclear weapons. Can you believe 60 minutes they do a show, and the show the whole show was how bad a condition our nuclear weapons are in. Did anybody see that show? I said can you right I said even if it’s true can you believe we’re putting this to the world to see? For Putin to see? By the way two weeks after that show Putin said they better not mess with us, we have nuclear weapons. Can you imagine Putin said from Russia? And the reason they did that is the President wanted the press to see how weak our nuclear capability. Remember the telephones? They don’t work. They were 40 years old and they have wires and the wires were rotting. And in order to work the telephones where our silos are, and the silos were all rusty and rotting, and the kids had nice kids they said we don’t know if it works. Oh great. And they’re screaming over the phone because the wires are so damaged and so old, and this is our nuclear. Now assuming that’s true, which it is, who the hell would show that to the enemy? And the reason he did is because he wants some funding to get them fixed up. Oh, that’s great. So we have to get smart people, tough people, cunning people. China, you probably read, some of you aren’t into this, but basically yesterday they did the largest devaluation in the history of China. Now they think the history, but they actually say only in the last two decades. Oh, okay, now I feel much better. Some people said in history but they actually brought it down to two decades. In other words 20 years. Okay, okay. What that means is you hear that sucking sound. You know what the sucking sound is? That means jobs, that means money, that means all of this coming out. They did a number on us, and I said when they did the last one, which wasn’t long ago like six, seven months ago, but it was a much more modest devaluation, I said I can’t believe that Obama is allowing this to happen. And we have all the cards. I just told the press it’s the greatest theft in the history of the United States what China has done to us. We have rebuilt China. Our money has rebuilt China. You go over to China there are bridges being built all over the place. I mean, bridges that make the George Washington Bridge and other bridges look small. And I'm not using the George Washington Bridge for political purposes, okay? Please. Because I wouldn’t do that, but it makes like the George Washington like small time. They’re building massive bridges, massive highways, massive roads. I went over I was in Dubai, great place. They have an airport. It’s like magic. It’s the most incredible thing you’ve ever seen. You go to Qatar, you go to places in China, many cities in China, you go to all these places. And then we go home and we land in La Guardia, or we land at Kennedy where they have hangars that are falling down. They’re rotting and rusting, and there are potholes in the runways. No it’s such a shock. You know, we don’t realize it. You know, we go to Kennedy, we go to Florida, we go whatever and we don’t, you know, after a while you get used to things you know what I mean? Like when your house gets dirty or when it needs a paint job you say it looks okay. Right? But these airlines are so bad, thank you. These airlines it’s so it’s so sad. It’s so sad. Then you look at the age of our infrastructure. You look at all of the different things, even the airlines, the airplanes. I was asked by because they’re actually a tenant of mine, Qatar, which they called Qatar, I’ve always said Qatar. They asked me would I call it Qatar but I said people in this country they like Qatar better, right? Don’t we like Qatar? They say Qatar but I like Qatar I mean they’re very nice people. And they asked me to go to a dinner and I said I can’t. And they said we’ll pay you a lot of money. Now as rich as I am I mean, it was a lot of money to have a dinner. Like, you know, like a tremendous amount of money. So I said I’ll go. It’s true. Now you have to understand you can be really rich, but if you’re gonna get hundreds of thousands of dollars to have a dinner two blocks from your house and you don’t do it, it’s time to retire. Do we agree? Do we agree? So anyway, so I went and it was so amazing. And I said to the head man of the airline what is the average age of your planes? And he said like oh about a year-and-a-half. Year-and-a-half, and then they showed charts where the average age of like some of our airlines, you know, 32 years, 15 years 28 years. And you see it. And then I said how do you finance your planes? And he looked at me like finance? We don’t finance we pay cash. Saudi Arabia, and it was very impressive. I mean, I was impressed, it wasn’t a question. And then when I went to Qatar I went into an airline terminal that was the most beautiful terminal I have ever seen ever. The most magnificent. They had lounges, they had spas, they had spas before you get on the plane you can get a massage. I'm not into that though. I’ve never been, I don’t like people touching me. It’s true, it’s true. It’s true actually. But they have these magnificent spas, everything and I said to the head man who was taking me for a tour, I said this is the most beautiful airline terminal I’ve ever seen. It was massive. He goes no, no, no, Donald, this is temporary. Our new one is being built over there. And he pointed and there must have been 40 cranes the longest most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen this was a tear down. And I said oh we’re doing it wrong. Saudi Arabia, and I have great relationships with Saudi Arabia as I do with Mexico, as I do with everybody. You know they all buy apartments from me. They pay millions and millions of dollars. Am I supposed to dislike them? I love them. China, I sell apartments for 50 million, 30 million, 25 million, 18 million, some of the cheap ones like 10 million okay those are the cheap ones. I don’t even bother to sign those contracts, but I get it from Saudi Arabia, I get it from Japan, I get it from everybody. I love these people. The problem is Mexico I love the Mexican people. They have tremendous spirit, tremendous spirit. You know, when I opened as Rush Limbaugh said, who is a great guy, Trump has taken more incoming than any human being I’ve ever seen. And it was only because the press totally changed my statement. They would use a half a sentence, they would use a sentence from behind. It turned out I was right because I was talking about illegal immigration. And it turned out that I was right with all of the problems that are happening. But when you look at Saudi Arabia, when you look at Mexico. By the way Mexico is becoming the new China. They are taking our business. Did you know that Nabisco, Nabisco did you see it yesterday? Nabisco is closing a factory in Chicago and they’re moving to Mexico this big factory, and taking many jobs. I think there are about 1,200 jobs gonna be lost in Chicago. No more Oreos. They make Oreos, don’t they, right? No more Oreos. I don’t like Oreos anymore. But no they announced and they’re doing other things and they’re moving. Mexico and it’s great I mean, look Mexico if you can get away with it it’s great. I have such respect for the leaders of Mexico and their negotiators. So I don’t dislike them. The biggest bank in the world is a bank a tenant in my building. One of my buildings, it’s an incredible bank, it’s the largest bank. Citibank is like a tiny subsidiary compared to this one in size. And I never have to worry about the rent, right? But so I love these people. Apartments just with Mexico I’ve hired as an example thousands over the years thousands of people have worked for me from Mexico and from lots of other places. They’re incredible people. But the problem is they’re leaders are smarter and sharper and more cunning than our leaders. They’re much more cunning. And the word cunning is very important because it’s like sort of streety. You know, they know what’s going on. And they are ripping us left and right all of these countries. Frankly, I mean I could mention 100 every we don’t make good deals anymore. So one of our great dealmakers you probably heard of him Carl Icahn, right? Good smart guy, right? So I had dinner with him the other night and I said Carl if I do this, and I'm really doing well. You know, I mean, hey are we leading in every poll? Every single poll. And it’s the talk of politics, I mean, it’s really become the talk of politics. So it’s like a great honor, but we got to get there, you know, I don’t want to talk about it I want to get there. I was called by one of the biggest journalists in the world the other day. He said Mr. Trump, could I ask you a question? What? How does it feel, how does it feel? I said how does what feel? He said you have done something that nobody else has ever done. You’ve taken over television, you’ve taken over the airways, it’s the summer of Trump. You know, they’re calling it the summer of Trump. No, okay. And I said and this is a highly respected guy, an amazing guy, and I said I haven’t done anything because I haven’t won. I mean, if this all happens and I don’t win, it starts with winning the primaries, getting the nomination and then going on and winning. I consider it a total waste of time. He said you’re wrong, you’ve done a great thing. Trust me. I won’t be happy, okay? I won’t be happy. But we’re all doing well. Think of this. So if you look at Saudi Arabia they make a billion dollars a day. A billion, we’re talking about a billion dollars a day, okay? And when they have a problem we send over our ships, we send over our and I don’t mind doing that, but they got to help us out folks. They got to help, they got nothing but money. They’re wonderful, they’re wonderful, I love their investing in the United States, I love their investing in New York and buying but they got to help us. We’re a debtor nation. We owe 19 trillion dollars, we have massive unfunded liabilities. We’re a nation that’s in serious trouble. And it’s going up rapidly and ObamaCare is a total disaster, it’s a catastrophe. It’s got to be repealed and replaced. It’s got to me. First of all, your premiums. I don’t even have to see it, your premiums have gone way up, your deductibles are through the roof unless you’re hit by a tractor, right? It’s true. And the reason I mention tractor I’ll tell you. So Japan now has a great leader named Abe. He’s a killer. Our negotiator is Caroline Kennedy who got the job by going into the White House and saying I have nothing to do. This was on television. They said how did you get the job? And she’s a nice person. You know why I say she’s nice? Because my daughter Ivanka likes her. My daughter is so great. She’s such a great person and my daughter likes her. She said daddy, she’s such a nice person. I agree I don’t want a nice person. I want a killer. We’re tired of the nice people. Somebody said it to me, Mr. Trump, I don’t know a woman who is a fan of mine said I don’t know if you have the personality to get elected because you’re not a nice person. I said actually I am a nice person, I love helping people. You watch, you watch I will help on women’s health issues more than anybody including on the Democratic side. Women’s health issues, you watch you watch. Bush the other day didn’t want to fund them. He said I don’t want to fund women’s health issues. He didn’t want to fund. That’s worse than Romney’s 47 percent which probably cost him the election along with other things like he forgot to campaign for about three weeks at the end okay. That didn’t help. Forgot to go on television for about three weeks. But we have to do something and we have to do it fast. And if we don’t do it fast we’re not gonna have a country. Now, speaking of that speaking of that, you know, it’s funny I got a great review on a speech the other night. They say his only problem is he speaks through his applause. You know why? I don’t have time to wait for the applause. I want to just do it. It’s true. The guy gave me like this great review he said he’s a great speaker he does beautifully he’s, you know, he’s not scripted which is good. Supposing I was reading all this stuff, you know, with the teleprompters? I actually said if you’re running for President you should not be allowed to use a teleprompter. No, it’s true. It’s true. It’s so easy. No. You walk up, yeah. You walk. Ladies and gentlemen, hello. No, no. You shouldn’t be allowed, because you don’t know what you’re gonna get. Look what happened with Obama. We used a teleprompter guy. No, it’s true. You’re better right you don’t want a scripted President. And you don’t want a politically correct President because it takes too much long. Takes too much time. It’s true, it’s true. You don’t want this political correctness stuff. Now I hear there’s a certain college, I won’t say it’s in your state, but they don’t want you to differentiate between a man and a woman. You heard about this one, right? If that ever passed I'm I'm gone. That’s too much. But the things that are happening are so crazy. And you know you talk about political correct you probably heard about the little debate we had just recently. If I were politically correct during that debate I would have gotten clobbered. And instead we won the debate. And, you know, after the debate all the poll numbers went up, but boy was that a hell of a time. Was that incredible? Was that incredible? So that debate has always had like two million three million people, you know, the first debate bum bum bum every four years. There were 24 million people and probably gonna go up much higher than that when the final numbers come in. So do you think they were there for Jeb Bush or Rand Paul? Rand, Rand I’ve had you up to here. It’s funny though, because Rand Paul. Sit down I’ll ask you a question. Go ahead. He wants the guy wants to ask a question. That’s okay he’s a good guy I’ve seen his face before he’s been at every rally I mean, what am I gonna do not take his question? I’ll take your question in a minute. One second. No, no. Wait. So Rand Paul has been hitting me because he’s like his poll is like going down. He’s weak on military. Can you imagine today being weak on military? You know what even doves are stronger. I have a friend, I mean, this friend didn’t want to even talk about military. Now he’s become worse than me. I mean, he’s become like a total like this total incredible Hulk, and that’s good. So Rand Paul is weak on the military, he’s weak on immigration, he’s weak on everything. He’s got no numbers. So all of a sudden I see him and, you know, he called me up he said I would love to this was like a year ago. He wants to play a round of golf with me. I said oh, no don’t do it. So I'm actually a good golfer. I killed him, okay? I killed him. If I didn’t I wouldn’t say it, but I killed him. But more importantly after that he said do you think you could do me a favor? What? Could you contribute to my eye center? I said you know what what do they do? Bum, bum, bum, I said yes I will I gave him a lot of money. I'm not I don’t want anything I just gave him a lot of money. Then all of a sudden I see him chirping on the stage he’s like chirping I said who is that over there that person? Who is he? And now he’s going around, you know, saying like bad things whatever. You know, and the beauty is this. Nobody ever attacked me like Senator Lindsey Graham. I mean, what he said. And he went from one percent to nothing. It’s true. Nobody ever attacked me, nobody, like Perry of Texas. Who by the way did a lousy job at the border. I mean, he’s talking about the border. The guy was governor and he keeps talking about the border. I say you’re a governor of Texas why didn’t you fix it? The new governor is doing much better than him, but we won’t say that okay. Because he’s actually a nice man, and he didn’t say it when I said you have to pass an IQ test to come up on the stage. He said, no, he said to me Donald Trump is keeping a senator, by the way a failed senator, off the stage. I said wait a minute, went to the best schools, great student, went out and made a fortune, did the Apprentice one of the most successful shows on television ever, NBC renewed it I said I'm not doing it. NBC comes up renewed the biggest people in NBC came to my office four months ago please do it, please, please. I said I'm not doing it. I'm gonna make this country great again. I'm gonna run for President we’re gonna make the country great. I wrote many bestsellers including many bestsellers including Trump, the Art of the Deal which was about the number one selling business book of all time. There he’s got it. I said the other night my second favorite book. Did you know what I said is my first favorite book? The Bible. That’s true it’s the same thing. And I didn’t ask him to stand up. Actually I got my biggest hand the other night when I said that. I said my favorite book is the Bible, my second favorite book is The Art of the Deal, but that’s not even close to the Bible. But anyway so these people they went down so now I have a new guy coming, it’s Rand Paul, and that’s okay. And actually, Carly was a little nasty to me. Be careful, Carly. Be careful. But I can’t say anything to her because she’s a woman and I don’t want to be accused of being tough on women. I can’t do that, right? Can I do that? Women, am I allowed to fight back? Am I allowed? She’s been a little nasty to me. So I promised that I wouldn’t say and I said to myself. I promised I wouldn’t say that she ran Hewlett Packard into the ground. I said I will not say it, that her stock value tanked, that she laid off tens of thousands of people, and she got viciously fired. I said I will not say that, and that she then went out and ran against Barbara Boxer for the United States Senate in California. And it’s a race that should have been won and she lost in a landslide. And I said I will not say that, okay? All right? So I'm not going to say it. So our country has tremendous potential. We have to take back our jobs from China and all of the other people. We have to renegotiate our trade deals by getting people like Carl Icahn and Henry Kravis and our great deal makers. We have the greatest deal makers in the world. Like Carl is very busy. I called him, he said you’re doing great, you’re doing great. Tough guy, you’re doing great, every poll you’re doing amazing. I said, Carl, do me a favor just relax. I want to do this. If I win you take China, I’ll get somebody else to take this one, I’ll get some we will have our best. And these people, Carl I think he’s a nice guy, but some of them are not nice. Some are horrible human beings, okay? But they’re the greatest in the world. Do we want nice people or do we want these horrible human beings negotiating for us? Horrible, I want horrible, I want the horrible ones. We will make great trade deals. We will save Social Security without cuts. We will come up with healthcare plans that will be phenomenal, phenomenal, that will be less expensive. We have to get rid of the little artificial circles. I call them the insurance company circles. You know what I mean, you’re in the business. We have to get rid of the artificial circles wrapping around the states all paid for by your local insurance companies because they have monopolies. I have a huge company and if I'm in New York I get like no bids. I get one bid. Okay? I go to New Jersey where I have a lot of stuff, I go to California where I have a lot of stuff, I go to Florida. There’s no bids because they have a monopoly on their little states. So they would rather have a monopoly than be able to negotiate all over the country. In other words they would rather have New York sewed up than have competition where they have to actually go and work for their money. That’s over. That’s over. And you’ll have phenomenal plans, you’ll have them for much less money. The insurance companies will not be happy, but see they don’t give me money. They give to Jeb, and they give to Hillary, and they give to everybody. I don’t want their money. I was called today by the biggest lobbyist and who I’ve used, he’s great. He can do anything. He said Donald I would love to make a major contribution to your campaign. I said I don’t want your money. No, no, no you don’t understand. It was like he had never heard this before. He said I want to really, you know, give four, five million dollars if it’s okay. You’re leading in all the polls. You know, they have to protect, you know, if Trump wins they got to protect themselves, right? I said, you know, you’re a friend of mine, you’re a good guy. I don’t want your money. Because what he’s gonna do is if I win and when one of his companies has a problem I'm gonna do what’s right for the people of the country. I'm not gonna do what’s right for him and his people. So you have the special interest people and you have all of these lobbyists and you have the donors. And I will tell you nobody is gonna control us. We’re gonna work this together, and we’re gonna make it so strong and so great. I use the concept of the Ford plant being built in Mexico. It shouldn’t be built there. We want it built in Michigan. We want it built in New Hampshire. We want it built in Iowa. How does it help us? How does it help us? You go to the great business schools and you do really well and then you come home and you say well let’s figure this out. They’re gonna spend two-and-a-half billion dollars building a plant in Mexico. They’re gonna make cars, trucks, and parts, and then they’re gonna ship it back to the United States. How does that help us? And we get no tax, we get no tax. So when Jeb becomes President, if that ever happens, or when Hillary if that ever happens, or when, hey it can happen folks I hate to tell you. I think it’s unlikely. I think it’s unlikely, but if Jeb became President when they say, Mr. President, it’s very bad that Ford is building in Mexico. Oh, okay we’ll do something. Let me go to sleep first, we’ll do something. We’ll do something about it. As soon as he says we’ll do something, hey, he’s not stupid. The lobbyists will call him. They gave him some of this 114 million, and the donors and the special interests. They’ll say well wait a minute we have stock in Ford. We want Ford to do what they want to do. You have to and the lobbyists will go up to him and say Mr. President, you can’t do this. These people gave you two-and-a-half million dollars. Oh, they did that’s right. I can’t do it. And they’ll build happily and they’ll have a nice plant, and we’ll lose thousands of jobs and, you know, terrible. Now what I would say is different. They will call me too, but I wouldn’t even take their call, but I might I take them because some of them are actual nice guys. So I’ll take them and say no, I’ll start the conversation, no. And I wouldn’t use Carl or anybody in this because, you know, and by the way I hope the press calls Carl Icahn because he feels very strongly about this. And he wants to do it, he’s so anxious to do it. He’s got he’s wealthy as I, they all want to do it. You know, a guy like Carl Icahn who’s worth many billions of dollars he wants to do it. That’s more important to him than a deal. He doesn’t need another deal. I said Carl how many deals can you do? Just make the great deal, it’s this country. That’s the great deal. We got to make this country rich, and then we got to make it great. And I said the same thing to others, but okay. So they come up to Trump, and I wouldn’t call any of these guys because this is too easy. Too easy. So the head of Ford calls me up and he says, Mr. President, we really want to build this plant in Mexico. I say well, congratulations, but you’re not gonna do it. Well, we’re gonna forward. I say okay, then we’re gonna charge you a 35 percent tax on every car and truck and part that comes into our country. Every single one, 35 percent. He says you can’t do that. I say I can, trust me I can do it. Trust me. And what happens is probably they fold before 5:00. It could be they’ll play tough and they’ll wait until the next day. I say they fold before 5:00, and the reason is the reason I wouldn’t waste the time of the killers I told you about, the great negotiators, because this is just too easy. This is too easy. This is a couple of phone calls. So what happens now is the next day they’ll call up and they’ll say, please, Mr. President. I’ll say no, I want you building in the United States and if you do it that’s the way it is. And they will say, Mr. President, we’re building our plant in the United States. It’s that simple, it’s that simple. Who would let Nabisco, Nabisco, who would let Nabisco go to Mexico? Who would let these car companies? In Tennessee they were expecting a great deal with a major foreign car company. It was gonna be built in Tennessee, it was all set. Gonna be built in Tennessee, it was gonna be a great deal. And all of a sudden the last moment they announced they’re not gonna do it in Tennessee they’re doing it in Mexico. Who would allow this to happen?
A: Obama, you’re right about that. That’s a very good answer. It won’t happen, believe me, with Trump. It won’t happen. It won’t happen. Go ahead. I mean, this guy, I hope this question is worth it. This guy has been standing up for the entire thing. I hope this is gonna be a good question. Go ahead.
Q: Mr. Trump, I’ve been doing an investigations in Washington for 30 years. I have threats on my life.
Q: Unidentified Male: My work has been undercover a time, and Fox hasn’t touched this. And I’ve been in touch with Kelly too, and I’ve been in...
A: Let’s go. Come on, got to go, got to go.
Q: All right. There’s...
A:He’s sewing up my whole speech this guy.
A: Go ahead.
Q: There’s counterfeit substandard parts in most of the nuclear plants in the United States.
A: Counterfeit substandard parts in nuclear plants in the United States, I'm not surprised to hear that. Why? Am I surprised? No.
Q: And some of them have come from China. Now when I brought...
A: And in airplanes, too, by the way.
Q: When I brought this out the NRC, Nuclear Regulatory Commission, accused me of conspiring to topple their agency, had me in mass federal court for six years
where Whitey was for a short time. Now right now you could do something for the State of Massachusetts and New Hampshire, and I just got back from Chattanooga, too. And I...
A: Here we go, come on.
Q: And I spoke to some marines there. The security...
A: Listen I like the guy, he’s a nice guy.
A: Did I do the right thing in letting him ask? By the way he happens to be right. Look, you don’t even have to tell me. I guarantee they have substandard parts in nuclear and in airplanes and because they get them from China and when you get from China you don’t know what the hell you’re getting. Go ahead finish your question real fast.
Q: Security booth at...
A: I want to make these people happy.
Q: The security booth at...
Q: The security booth at the Seabrook Nuclear Plant is empty right now and the NRC said it’s not required.
Q: What’s the question?
Q: Now I got involved because I'm in the nursing home profession and...
A: Okay come on, you know, I got to go. How you doing?
Q: Well, wait a minute. Let me...
Q: Finish this.
A: Okay. You know what, I think your question is great and I can understand. He’s talking about basically counterfeit parts just to cut to the chase. We don’t have to know that you’re in the nursing home business. What are you trying to talk to some of us about joining your little home? Come on. Sit down. Enough. We think it’s good, we think your point is good. Yeah, give it to him good. I’ll read it tonight around 1:00 in the morning instead of sleeping. All right. It’s good, it’s good, go sit come on. Come on let’s go. What a nice guy, right? Nice guy. Hey, he means well honestly he means well. You do. Oh, stand up you stand up. This guy I love. Tell me, how bad are the vets being treated?
Q: Sir, way worse than you understand.
A: Way worse than we understand. Go ahead.
Q: You have over 8,000 veterans a year that cannot get access to care, and it is let me put this in context. 8,000 veterans are committing suicide because of the incompetence and the corruption going on at the VA system. That’s just the ones committing suicide.
A: Yeah. It’s a tremendous problem. Suicide within the vets, you know.
Q: Let’s put this in context.
A: It’s an incredible problem.
Q: That is the equivalent of a World War II baton death march every year. Okay?
A:Yeah. I’ve been hearing about it so much.
Q: Unidentified Male: Where...
A: The suicide rate is unbelievable.
Q: 47,000 veterans total for all kinds of other reasons. No one is being indicted, no one is going to jail. The VA OIG has been proven to be covering it up, that’s why the IOG head of it just lost his job recently. When you are President can I have your word that you will bring in the FBI and start investigating this
VA because we...
A: I would do that.
Q: Need to clean this up.
A: It can be, I would do it. Look, it can’t be, great question. It can’t be just incompetence because it’s so bad what’s happening to the vets and the VA it’s so bad that it can’t be just incompetence. It’s got to be theft and it’s got to be a lot more than we’re hearing about. So I would do that. Thank you, man. Go ahead. Come on.
Q: I have to fight for this, because my son is an active duty gunnery uh gunny sergeant in the United States Marine Corps and I will not let him walk into this nightmare like I did.
A: Okay. I love it. I love it thank you. Go ahead let’s take you want to take a couple? Who wants to leave? Does anybody want to leave? No. I have all night. Let’s take a couple questions. Go ahead, go ahead.
Q: Mr. Trump, you’ve got that firing move down, do you think you can fire some of these federal employees at the VA?
A:Well you have to. Not only that but the EPA. How about the EPA, okay? How about our Common Core folks in Washington? How about Common Core in
Washington? You think you could get rid of a few there? You’re right, right. Good question. Yes, sir. Go ahead. Young guy here, go ahead.
Q: I'm a NASA Space Technology Research Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and...
A: You know my uncle was a professor at MIT so that’s good.
Q: Okay. So I'm in a joint program MITT and Harvard Medical School and I'm actually a graduate of...
A: Pretty smart, hmm? Good go ahead.
Q: When you announced that you were gonna run for President you said that America needs victories again.
A: Right. We have no victories.
Q: What do you...
A: Do we have victories? You know, when do we beat somebody in trade? And we don’t we don’t beat anybody.
Q: So in my industry the biggest victory...
A: Oh we’re gonna have so many victories. We’re gonna have so many victories they’re gonna be pouring out of your Harvard educated ears. You watch, go ahead.
Q: So in my industry one of our biggest victories was putting a man on the moon.
Q: What do you think about putting humans on Mars?
A:Honestly, I think it’s wonderful. I want to rebuild our infrastructure first, okay? I think it’s wonderful. Go ahead. Yeah? Go ahead get wait for that mic. Go ahead, come on. Let’s get with it here. All right just shout. Go ahead, I’ll go ahead.
Q: My name is Brenda Bushard I live in Madbury. I’ve been a caregiver for nearly 10 years. My husband has younger onset Alzheimer’s disease. My mother is almost 89 lives with me, she has Alzheimer’s disease. I'm one of 65,000 Alzheimer’s caregivers here in the State of New Hampshire.
A: Yeah Alzheimer’s tough tough.
Q: And Alzheimer’s receives 600 million dollars from NIH while we’re spending 153 billion in Medicare and Medicaid to people with Alzheimer’s.
A:I know, I know.
Q: So my question is what will you do to ensure that this devastating disease is a top priority as well...
A: It’s a total top priority for me. I have so many friends whose family is devastated by Alzheimer’s. So it’s believe me it’s a total priority. That’s something that we should be working on and we can get an answer. There are some answers. They’ve made less progress than we had hoped, as you know, but there are some answers.
Q: I think your voters really respect your boldness and your brashness, but I'm wondering if just for a moment you might speak from the heart and tell us what’s specifically endears you to New Hampshire (inaudible).
A: The people. I mean, honestly. I’ve had such a great response. I love that question. Somebody one of my friends, thank you. One of my friends was asking me what’s it’s like when you go up? Because I’ve been here a lot and, you know, we’ve done so many town halls and so many different meetings. And now we’re really we’re having so many people we need the bigger auditoriums, which work out well. And now, you know, I'm gonna go see the other auditorium where they didn’t have the great real estate, right? And I'm going to see the people outside that are waiting to see us. But the people of New Hampshire are amazing. They’re like the people that built this country. They work hard, you know, I say they’re smart, they’re industrious, and they love this country. They want to see it happen. They’re great people. And I was so honored, you know, because recently everybody said that Walker would win Iowa, right? And Bush who is, you know, falling like a stone because he’s sort of like I don’t know Kenny Bunkport. Tell me is that really so here? It’s not that’s from a different planet, right? I don’t get it. But they said Bush well he’s being down big and Walker you have to remember Walker grew up a little bit in Iowa became the governor of the adjoining state. But what people don’t know is they have tremendous massive deficits. They have very, very poor employment new jobs, they have a lot of dissention, a lot of problems in Wisconsin. Which is a state I love, but they have a lot of problems with their education they’re having a lot of problems and with their debt. They’re putting tremendous amounts of debt so it was sort of funny. I was very nice to Walker. He came up to my room I gave him money for his campaign. I give to everybody. Anybody who wants to run I give, you know, I give a lot of money to people, right? So I gave him money, he came up to see me about six months ago he gave me a plaque. He gave me a plaque. You need some money? Here. But he gave me a plaque and it was very nice and then I was very nice to him. Because I can’t be mean to somebody that doesn’t like, you know, there are a couple of guys running that have been so nice to me. And I cannot say bad about them I want to, and then one of his underlings said something sort of nasty about me. I said oh finally I can talk about Wisconsin. It was so good and he plunged in Iowa. And I'm leading Iowa big, right? And we’re leading New Hampshire big. And you know, we’re leading Nevada big. And what I loved about Nevada they did a second part of the poll. And the second part of the poll you saw it it came out last week. Everybody was shocked. I wasn’t because I'm gonna bring jobs back into this country. I'm leading all candidates in the Hispanic vote. Everybody was surprised. I said why are you surprised? I employ thousands and thousands of Hispanics. They’re amazing people. But people were surprised to see that. So I'm leading. North Carolina we’re leading by massive numbers, South Carolina we’re leading by massive numbers. We’re leading everywhere. In uh a poll came out 32 percent nationwide, another one 24 percent Fox, CNN came out it was a massive poll. We’re leading because people are tired of what’s happening to your country. They’re tired of being ripped off by everybody in the world. They’re tired of it. You know, the American dream we talk about it. And I use the expression a lot, the American dream. And we have look at all those cameras blazing back there. This is live all over the place. On Fox, on CNN it’s live. I get up to make a speech and I speak from the heart, I really do. I don’t have look there’s nothing, I speak from the heart. But a big portion, not all of it, but a big portion of the media, the political media in particular is so dishonest. They’re really dishonest people. And you probably heard me say I always say I like to say the American dream is dead, but I'm gonna make it bigger and better and stronger than ever before. Okay? I say it all the time. The American dream is dead, but I'm gonna make it bigger, better, stronger than ever before. Okay. So I say it all the time so I go home a month ago and my wife saw me speaking on television. And she said darling, that was such a horrible thing you said. It was so nasty. I said what did I say? You said the American dream is dead. I said no, I said it’s dead but we’re gonna make it great, right? So I turn on television, TEVO, I turn on television and I see it. And it says the American dream is dead. Boom, period. I said that’s terrible, no it’s so dishonest. But the fact is a lot of people think it is dead, and it’s got a lot of problems. There’s no question about it. But we are going to make our country great again. We are going to do things with our country that are going to be so good and so smart and so spectacular and we are going to be respected by the world again and not laughed at like we’re all a bunch of stupid people being led by incompetent politicians. It’s not gonna go on any longer. We’re not gonna take it any longer. We’re going to take America great again. Thank you, and I love you people. I love you people, thank you. Thank you very much.
