get them over here. i love children. i love iowa. i have really developed a relationship and it is an amazing place.mr. trump: i think i have the best temperament, i am a ceo of a major corporation, i employ thousands and thousands of people, and no matter how you cut it, when i came out, i hit immigration, i hit it very hard. i talked about illegal immigration. people can say, well, he is right, we have to go to him. i talked about muslims, we have a problem. nobody else wanted to mention the problem. we have to have a temporary something because there is something going on that is not good. i am really person appear when the war in iraq -- i was the one who said, don't go, don't do it, you are going to destabilize the middle east. i am not the person appear with the trigger. i will build the military stronger, bigger, that are than anybody up here, and nobody is going to mess with us, i can tell you. didn't answer your question. we compete against. we are going to win with trump. we are going to win. we are going to win with pump. -- with trump. we're not going to back down. that is what i like.... text far would you let them go? mr. trump: lenny say a few things, first of all, marco said a few minutes ago that he said that obama knows exactly what he is doing, i disagree respectfully with marco. i think we have a president who as a president is totally incompetent and he doesn't know what he is doing. i think he has no idea what he is doing at our country is going to hell. so i does want to say we disagree on that. is that ok? country by china. china does not have that much control over north korea. i have dealt with the chinese all of the time, ideal with them. they tell me, they have total, absolute control practically of north korea. they are sucking trillions of dollars out of our country. we are rebuilding china with the money they take out of our country. i get along with china and let china solve that problem. they can do it quickly and surgically. that is what we should do with north korea. insurance people taking care of people appear. we have our lines around each state. the insurance companies are getting rich on obamacare. the insurance copies are getting rich on health care and health services and everything having to do with health, we're going to get rid of that. we are going to get a plan were people can organize and compete so much better. in addition to that, in addition to that, we have the health care savings plans, which are excellent. what i will say is there will be a certain number of people that will be on the street dying, and as a republican, i don't want that to happen. we are going to take care of people who are dying on the street because there are going to be a group of people who are not going to be able to think in terms of private or anything else and we are going to take care of those people and i think the anybody on this stage would have to agree, you are not going to let people die, sitting in the middle of a street in any city in this country. mr. trump: almost all of these people, actually, chris hasn't, but so many people have hit me with commercials and stuff about eminent romain. -- eminent domain. without it, you wouldn't have roads, you wouldn't have hospitals, you wouldn't have anything, you wouldn't have schools, you wouldn't have bridges, you need eminent domain. i have people who tell me how conservative they are, and they keep saying, all we need the keystone pipeline. to get the keystone pipeline, you need eminent domain, and without eminent domain, you don't get the keystone pipeline. what eminent domain does is when it is use on a person's property, they get a fortune. they get fair market value or if they are smart, they will get two or three times the amount of their property. if you don't have it come you don't have highways, schools, or anything. eminent domain is a necessity for a country. didn't want mr. trump: let me just have a mr. trump: that is all of his donors and special interests. tickets for the television audience, donors, special interest, the people who are putting up -- not loving me is because i am going to do the right thing for the american public. i don't want their money and i don't need their money and i'm going to do the right thing for the american public. the keystone pipeline, is likely to be a... text public use. mr. trump: no, it is a private state -- mr. trump: you wouldn't have the keystone pipeline that you want so badly without eminent domain. about -- mr. trump: excuse me, josh. why you are? mr. trump: as a derivative of the word conserve, we want to conserve our money, we want to conserve our wealth, we want to conserve, we want to be smart, we want to be smart in where we go when how we spend, we want to conserve our country, we want to save our country, and we have people who have no idea how to do that and they are not doing it and it is a very important word and it is something i believe in very, very strongly.... text mr. trump: i will bring jobs back from china, i will bring jobs back from japan, i will bring jobs back from mexico. now we are about to sign another trade deal, the tpp, which is going to be a disaster for this country because they don't talk about monetary manipulation. it is going to be a disaster. i'm going to bring jobs back and i'm going to bring them back very fast. under my tax plan, we are done highest tax country in the world. under my plan, we cut taxes for corporations and we will bring back trillions of dollars that are offshore. in mywe will bring back 2.5 trillion dollars, and in my opinion, there is much more. we are losing pfizer and other great countries that are now leaving. we have many companies who are now leaving this country and we are going to have a tax structure that is going to keep them in our country. specifics. mr. trump: well, four years ago, i said, bomb the oil and take the oil. and if we did that, they wouldn't have the wealth they have right now. now, i still say the same thing, because we're doing little pinpricks. we're not even bombing if somebody's driving a truck, they give notice to the person driving the truck, "we're going to bomb." if they don't get out of the truck, the truck sails away with the oil. we actually have a case where we don't want to bomb the oil, because we don't want to hurt pollute the atmosphere. can you imagine general douglas macarthur or general patton saying we can't bomb because we're gonna hurt the atmosphere? you have to knock the hell out of the oil. you have to take the oil. and you have also back channels of banking. you have people that you think are our great allies, our friends, in the middle east, that are paying tremendous numbers of tremendous amounts of money to isis. so we have to stop those circuits. nobody knows banking better than i do. they have back circuits, back channels. tremendous amounts of money is coming in through the banking system. so between the oil and the banking, you will dry them up. but it should have been done four years ago, not now.... text mr. trump: you have to go in first of all, when you take away their money, when you take away their wealth, that'll very much weaken and it will happen fairly fast. they'll last for about a year, based on all of the wealth they've accumulated. but when you stop the banking channels and when you stop the oil and take the oil not just bomb it, take it when you do that, it's going to dry up very quickly. they're going to become a very weakened power, quickly. thank you.... text mr. trump: well, i'll tell you what. in the middle east, we have people chopping the heads off christians, we have people chopping the heads off many other people. we have things that we have never seen before as a group, we have never seen before, what's happening right now. the medieval times i mean, we studied medieval times not since medieval times have people seen what's going on. i would bring back waterboarding and i'd bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding. way our founders thought it should be done. people get together, they make deals. ronald reagan did it with tip o'neil very successfully, you didn't hear so much about executive orders, if you heard about it at all. you have to be able to get a consensus. now, the real person like it was mentioned about the deal with iran, how bad a deal is that? it doesn't get any more amateurish than that. a good deal maker would never make a deal like that. with congress, you have to get everybody in a room, and you have to get them to agree. but, you have to get them to agree what you want, and that's part of being a deal maker. you can't leave the white house, go to hawaii and play golf for three weeks and be a real deal maker. it doesn't work that way. you have to get people in, grab them, hug them, kiss them, and get the deal done. but, it's got to be the deal that you want. it looked like he was looking right at me, right there. i think that i look at what's going on, i look at all of the polls, i do very, very well against hillary clinton. i can tell you, i'm the last person that she wants to run against. and i think you can see what we've done in terms of galvanizing. i've been all over the country. we're last night, i was in south carolina, we had 12,000 people. it set up in about four days. we have galvanized and we've created a movement. a lot of it has to do with as an example, josh's question on drugs. i'm the first person that said, "build a wall." but i mean, a real wall, not a toy wall like they have right now. a real wall. and you'll solve lots of problems. but we will galvanize the people of this country, and we will beat hillary clinton. because assuming that she runs, by the way, how she gets away with the e-mail stuff is hard to believe. so, i don't know that she's going to be running. but on the assumption she runs... runs, she's running for one reason. she's going to be able to run for one reason, and that's because the democrats are protecting her. because so many people have done so much less than her, and they were absolutely their lives have been destroyed. but on the assumption they do protect her, i will win the election and we will win it by a lot. we will win it handily. we cannot have another four years of essentially barack obama. divide, but i have to say that the police are absolutely mistreated and misunderstood, and if there is an incident, whether it's an incident done purposely which is a horror, and you should really take very strong action or if it is a mistake, it's on your news casts all night, all week, all month, and it never ends. the police in this country have done an unbelievable job of keeping law and order, and they're afraid for their jobs, they're afraid of the mistreatment they get, and i'm telling you that not only, me speaking, minorities all over the country, they respect the police of this country and we have to give them more respect. they can't act. they can't act. they're afraid for losing their pension, their job. they don't know what to do. and i deal with them all the time. we have to give great respect, far greater than we are right now, to our really fantastic police. everybody sues, right? they see excessive i mean, they go out, they sue. we have so much litigation i see the courts, i see what they're doing. they sue, and you know what? we don't want excessive force. but at what point you know, either you're going to have a police force that can do its job... i was just up in manchester, i met with the police officers yesterday. tremendous people. they love the area, they love the people, they love all the people. they want to do their job. and you're going to have abuse and you're going to have problems, and you've got to solve the problems and you have to weed out the problems. but the police in this country are absolutely amazing people.... text mr. trump: well, i i know diane foley very well. her husband and these are tremendous people. i spoke for them, i raised a lot of money for the foundation. i fully understand, james, one of that was really the first that we saw, really visually saw it was so horrible. and i will tell you, though, with all of that being said, you can not negotiate this way with terrorists. if you do, you are going to have many, many more james foleys. james foley was a great young man. his parents are incredible people. they've done such a good job, since his since his death. but you just cannot negotiate that way with terrorists, or you're gonna have so many other james foleys. and one thing on the vets during the last debate, i raised $6 million for the vets, and i will tell you something... along with the veterans groups in new hampshire better than i do without ball (ph) to sarel (ph) and all of the people that i deal with and these are great people. the one thing that we're not mentioning, there's tremendous fraud, waste and abuse in the veterans administration and if i'm running things, that's going to disappear...mr. trump: hello, everybody. any questions? mr. trump: it only has to do with me. very fair question. there is no bad blood. what has happened is jeb bush has spent about $20 billion on negative ads that in many cases are false. he has a lot of special-interest money. his campaign in my opinion is going absolutely nowhere but he has spent $20 million on negative ads on me. i think you would do better if he went positive. the only reason i bring it up is that we have to respond to those negative ads. no bad blood.... text mr. trump: ted cruz is desperate. i think he's a very unstable guy. i think we put out a release -- i think he's a very unstable guy. i can say only to a minor extent in comparison to other politicians, i have not then doing this long, i've been doing this since june 16 and i've never met a person who lies more than ted cruz. i've never seen anything like it. he did it with ben carson, he did it with the voter violation fraud. his -- what you guys did not take up was interesting. he picked up the ben carson thing where he told people ben carson left the race and now they have calls that are much more severe than anything you had at the time, that ben carson had left the race, so vote for ted cruz. it probably would have been a victory for trump but the thing you didn't pick up on was the voter violation fraud he committed. it was a fraud he committed. take a look. i have never seen anybody that lied as much. as a christian, you are really going to have to study that. i think he is an unstable person. i watch him and i see him. he's a good debater, but he can't talk. i don't even think he's a good debater -- i heard he's a good debater but i don't personally see he is a good debater. he is a very unstable person. that is just my opinion.... text mr. trump: when somebody attacks me like jeb, and i was very nice to him -- he talked about the tremendous thing -- they world trade center came down during the reign of george bush. it came down. during the library debate, he mentioned about how we were safe. we were not safe. that was the greatest attack in history of the united states. it was worse than pearl harbor because we were attacked as individuals, not as the military. the greatest single attack. i'm standing up there saying do i want to embarrass him -- but because i'm a nice person, i didn't say it. but when he said it another time, i had to say i'm sorry, the world trade center came down which was the greatest attack in history on this country. you had that -- i think few people would say the war in iraq is positive. you had him on the aircraft carrier saying how the war was essentially over, guess what? not over. the war with iraq is a disaster. they are taking the oil, they are taking everything. i was against the war in iraq. you should get some points for vision. i was totally against the war in iraq. i said when they are getting out, take the oil. he did not take the oil. now iran has the oil and isis has the oil. now isis has so much money.... text mr. trump: it is a political campaign. i can attack. they are attacking me all the time. did i attack marco? for being a joke artist? when did i attack him? for being a joke artist? we can't have that as a president, can we? i don't think i attacked marco. go ahead.... text mr. trump: he has printed lies. not only printed -- what he did with ben carson was terrible. i've never seen anything like that. it was a total lie and 10 minutes after the election was over, the caucus, he said i'm sorry, and ben did not accept that apology the way i look at it. i don't want to be in a position where it's saturday evening and i get a call -- i'm sorry, my staff did something. he talks about me being against the second amendment. i'm the strongest person running in favor of the second amendment. my sons have been long-term members of the nra and they are extraordinary shots. the whole thing is incredible. he says i want to appoint liberal judges -- you just saw it. donald trump is going to appoint liberal judges. i named to judges during the debate -- i'm the only one who named to judges. it could be someone else, but those judges are highly respected conservative judges. they would be great judges to appoint. just the opposite. but the only way i can fight it is all the press here. but most people cannot fight it. he is a liar. he will go up and absolutely lie. henry, who is lieutenant governor, would say i can't believe the things he's saying. he just comes out and whom, boom, boom and absolutely lies. i want the apology before. in my opinion, based on what i have learned from very top lawyers, he doesn't have the right to serve as president or even run as president. i will bring that lawsuit if he does not apologize. i do quick. maybe, if i can -- we have another one coming. it will be quick. my sister was appointed by ronald reagan. elevated in the clinton administration. but she was originally appointed by ronald reagan. >> she's a federal judge at a high level, the court of appeals. she was appointed by ronald reagan, highly brilliant woman, known as a brilliant judge. i don't know what her views are and i don't think she would want to tell me. one of your cohorts wanted to do a great story and i said they're going to do a great story and she says i don't want any stories. she's very much like me in that respect. she is a federal judge, highly respect it at every level. certainly, what he said about her was horrible. she may have views on certain things. i don't want to ask her her views. i don't think it is appropriate. she is a very solid person and a great intellect. she is acknowledged as being so on the court. even jeb won't go and say donald trump is against the second amendment or whatever. he doesn't do that, but what ted cruz says is incredible. i think he actually said it -- donald trump is against the second amendment. i did a radio show with a very good host and he said you were totally in favor of obama care. every speech i have made -- we have two repeal and replace obamacare. he said he really likes obamacare. how'd do you like that? don't forget, i only have three days to fight it. i don't have six months. so we will bring a lawsuit if he doesn't straighten his act out. he is a lying guy -- some people misrepresent -- this guy is just a plain liar. i felt better because marco rubio called him a liar. i felt so much better. a politician called a politician and now i can actually call him a liar. this is for gitmo. it is originally for gitmo, but you haven't asked that yet and it's ridiculous. we are totally against it and if i win, we are moving it out. they should not be closing guantanamo bay. they should not be closing it in any way, shape or form. and they shouldn't be moving people, hardened criminals, into this area. and i will stop it. if i don't stop it in terms of time, if i win, they are going back. i keep it open. i would keep it open, that's right. we have to be very vigilant. we will look at everybody's case, certainly, and you don't want to have people that are innocent of something suffering, but you have some very hardened people. he's letting them go one after another. many of them are going back into the battlefields. so we want to keep it open, and that's the way i feel. here is the thing, i don't want people coming into this area. i've had people from south carolina calling me, asking me to do this press conference about guantanamo bay. there's not going to be any people coming here, and i think the governor should take a strong stand on it. eventually they should. i would increase the population, as we capture other people who are terrorists and the like, i would absolutely increase and i would be very strong on it. the governor has a lot of power that people don't realize. for instance with the migration. you have people coming into the area of south carolina. if i were the governor, i would not let them come in. i don't care what the rules and regulations say. it very, the governor doesn't have anything to do with it. i would have something to do with it, believe me. we should not be taking people in from the migration. we should not be taking people in from syria because we don't know who they are. we don't know where they come from. look at what's going on in sweden and germany and all these other countries. we should not be taking people in from the migration. we should help people with safe zones in syria. i will get the gulf's dates to pay for it. they are smart, but they will pay. and we are not going to pay. we should build safe zones, because you have to do something, but i don't want to take people into this country. you saw what happened in california with two people who got married that were radicalized, and it was a disaster. they killed 14 and plenty of people right now are laying in the hospital. we have enough problems as a country. take a look at what's going on in germany, brussels, sweden the other night. we are not going to happen that. -- we are not going to have that. records, you will see there was tremendous information and the cia and various other agencies were not getting along and there were a lot of personality conflicts and they all hated each other, and we ended up with the world trade center. if you take a look, at the book i wrote, i mentioned osama bin laden, because i saw him a couple of times and read about it, and i said he is a bad dude. we've better do something about him. i was not even in politics. i just always have found him very interesting. i said to myself, we better do something about that guy. if you look back at the cia and the various other agencies, and i think john is nodding, i don't know if you remember this. they had tremendous problems getting along together. they knew some bad things were going to happen in they could have stopped it. go ahead. i don't say anything. here is what i say, are you ready? the world trade center came down during his reign. the war with iraq which started this whole thing -- the whole thing starts with the war in iraq. saddam hussein was a bad guy. one thing about him, he killed terrorists. now iraq is a harbor for terrorists. saddam hussein understood and he killed terrorist. bad guys. but it's the president and other people, and frankly obama is no better because the way he got us out was a disaster. shouldn't have been there, should not have gotten out the way we got out. but if the president went to the beach, we would have been better off, believe me. this. give my warmest regards. me, no. no, not really. ago and his wife made a statement about me having to do with -- i made a statement about her and him. i said once she made that statement and once he was campaigning, it's a whole different ballgame. now is the ex-president is campaigning for his brother, i think he's probably open for great scrutiny, maybe things that have not been thought of in the past. when jeb used his name in the first debate, i left it alone. but when he kept using it, i said i have to bring it up. when he's still talking about the great safety we had, i said i'm sorry, it's some point we have to bring it up. the world trade center came down during your brothers raieign. i don't think it can hurt them. how much worse can he do? delay, delay, yes. months, 11 months. it's not that much. i'm not saying that obama shouldn't do it, i'm just saying the republicans should not allow it to happen. i also said the republican should not have approved the budget they are proved -- they approved for weeks ago. the republicans have been very disappointing. i always say that obama is the worst negotiator of ever seen with everybody except the republicans.donald trump delivered remarks yesterday at the republican jewish coalition presidential forum here in washington dc. mr. trump says he is unsure if jerusalem should be named the capital of israel. he also says -- discusses plans to fight terrorism and negotiate a better nuclear deal with iran. this is about 35 minutes. mr. trump: thank you very much. you just likely because my daughter happens to be jewish. my life to israel. the other politicians can talk, and believe me they have not known that i've done. i received many awards. i was the grand marshall of the israeli day parade at a very dangerous time of people said don't do it. i walked up fifth avenue. i was looking for lots of trouble but i said no way i'm not going to do it. it was a rough time. it was 2004 and it was a tremendous was successful -- maybe the most successful parade ever had. money. i want your support and not your money. i am self funding my campaign. it's been an amazing experience because i very little money invested so far. i thought about this time i would have about $30 million in ads and i have none. i took a small regular commercial the other day in iowa but we have virtually no money invested in ads or advertising. i think he was business people will feel pretty good about this and respect it. at first i was embarrassed. i said i think we will have to spend money to spend money but it's not really like a good thing to do because i am in first place by a lot. it's not even close. every single poll in every single state. the numbers just came in three minutes ago in new hampshire. trump had 27. the next one is 13, 10, 9, 8, 5 and the rest are off the board. they will have to drop out soon. favorability -- isil at the top of her most but favorability is now with 50-39 niv hillary easily 46-41. that is ultimately the most important. supporter. i grew up in that environment. i grew up in brooklyn queens and israel was always very pair of -- their amount that our minds. i been criticized for receiving summit he awards from jewish groups. they look at my wall. it is loaded up. another christians are catching up. -- but now the christians are catching up. ever happened israel. very -- they love israel. they love it with passion. and having fundraiser for obama. i say what you doing? they say we don't know. he comes to the work and we don't know. i say he is a disaster. i believe the iran deal -- we are negotiators. we don't build gas stations in the middle of afghanistan for $43 million. $43 million in the the use the wrong kind of terminal because they don't sell that type of gas. $43 million for a gas station. how many think they could've done it for less? could you raise your hands please. i look at obama and the deal we give to iran. $150 billion. they don't need to develop nuclear weapons, they can buy them. it's true. why did they have to develop them. we give them $150 billion. they go out and in terms of surveillance, they have the right to self inspect. how about that? they can self inspect. we will let them self inspect and that you have the 24 days. the 24 days, we are all given context on start until such and such happens. it could be forever before you get to go in and inspect. we don't even get our prisoners back. and they want to start a negotiation to get the prisoners back and they want 19 people for our 3. we have 4, but they only want to talk about three. that should of a negotiated rent the beginning three years ago. a long? we conceded on every single -- we did not win anything. that should of been with our prisoners day one, whatever it was, years ago. we have to get our prisoners back. we need them. it will make us look better. everybody is going to like us more with the american public. any deal we strike is going to look good. we have to get our prisoners back. day one. they say will not give them and we will say bye-bye. call us when you're ready. then we go out and double up in trouble of sanctions. i guarantee you within 40 hours they are calling, begging us to come back to the table and you have your prisoners back. it is so easy. the president and john kerry, it was probably the worst negotiator i've ever seen, he did not read the article -- "the art of the deal." he is one of the few. he did not read it. and obama definitely do not read it. obama. etc. collect -- exactly correct. they said we did not do, get negotiations by s&p prisoners. it's really complicated. we want our prisoners back. so complicated. so now we will end up making a new deal probably at some point. i will tell you this. if i win, before i take office i guarantee those prisoners are going to be back. they will be back. i guarantee it. they will be back. now, our president does not want to use the term. we had another event which probably was related. it always happens. but probably was. i thinking -- it probably was related. radical islamic terrorism. we have a president that refuses to use the term. he refuses to say it. there is something going on with him that we don't know about. run. . what she did is criminal with the e-mails thread. in real life is attorney general -- his attorney general is going to listen to him. i think it's very dishonest what is going on with our government. general petraeus was given a life-changing sentence. other people have been sent to jail. he was -- i don't want to get into it with the poor guy. he went for nothing compared to what she did. for nothing. for 5% of what she did. and obama -- she cannot go against him or she gets indicted. that is the end of it. and he is got control of her. it's total control. she should not be allowed to run. what you give is a criminal act. this is a six-year statute of limitations. she is fighting for her life. if she does not become president, she can become a -- this is make sense to anybody? what she did was just wrong. she has been involved in corruption her whole life. whether it is whitewater -- her whole life is corruption. she was a horrible secretary of state. she did a horrible job other than travel a lot. nothing ever got done. the world blew up around her. it blew up. 500-600 calls and e-mails from our ambassador asking for help and she did not respond. the truth is she doesn't have the strength or the energy. she responded to her friends. some of those friends are quite interesting. an interesting friend going on there. she responded -- you get that, right? ambassador that is asking for help. hundreds of requests and she doesn't respond. member this -- for member this. -- remember this. the other day i was in florida and we had 12,000 people in sarasota. 12:00 in the afternoon with a football games going on. 12,000 people. exhibit consider health 5000 -- the convention center held 5000. i asked if i could get a larger space? we set a big record. we set a record everywhere. we beat the record of elton john. talent. one of the great musicians says you get the largest crowds of any single human being on earth without a guitar. meaning who dislike count on music. -- who does not count on music. we had am in -- an incredible response. based on the response and the polls, i don't want your money. stupidly doing to get money. trump does not want money. even though he is better than all these guys and he is going to do more for israel than anybody else. eating -- even though bibi netanyahu wanted me to do commercial for him and i did anyone his race -- adn he -- an dhe wo -- and he won his race. my whole life i've been a businessman and a developer. i have employed tens of thousands of people over my lifetime. i have unbelievable statements and unbelievable -- a lot of people said he will never run because he will never want to file various papers and he will know -- he will never file this. we know about papers. he signed a life away. they said he will never sign or file his financials because maybe he is not as rich as people think. i financials, -- my financials, 100 pages long. people realize he's much bigger and much stronger. look at these numbers. what they don't know is if i did not run i probably would've filed anyway because it build a great company and i like to brag about it whenever possible. it is true. some of the greatest assets, dural and trump tower and many buildings in manhattan. bank of america building in san francisco. so many other buildings. the reason i bring that up is because that is the kind of thinking we need. i don't bring it up as regular as you. -- bragodicia. we have people that don't of the first think about the word negotiation. i think anybody in this office, believe me, and they are better than obama and better than kerry and better from the fullest people -- foolish people. it's so embarrassing when you see what happens. sergeant barnard -- we get a traitor in they get five of the greatest killers they wanted for years. and they knew he was a traitor before you make the deal. you know about sergeant bergdahl. he deserted and six people were killed try to get him back. they were looking for him. a general and a kernel to see this people and they said no, he deserted. and we still need to deal. we get a traitor. he want to renegotiate deals? i would say about 99.9 -- is her any way that does not renegotiate deals in this room? the smack where he came from. you know of those five are now? they are all on the battlefield fighting us in trying to kill us and killing anybody they can see them. so they can get their five guys they wanted for nine years. and we get a dirty, rotten trader. that's the way our people negotiate. they are stupid people. have a great secret service. it's nice when you are number one, the give you secret service. talented people, great people. i believe i'm going to win. i have a great feeling about it. my life is been about winning. my life is been about winning and that is what i want to do for the country. and people say about my company and deals. i have no interest. the other day ivanka, dad, weakened by this wonderful office building. i said honey, who cares? how can you talk to me about such trivial things? are going to do this and budgets. the guy before said we're going to work on the budget. building which is magnificent and they look up. darling, look at those columns. look at the ceiling. with the angels. look at these magnificent floors. we have arrived. this is incredible. and then they become mainstream. they vote on obamacare. they don't believe. they lose all their courage. i want these a nice word around words i get reported for foul language. they lose all of their courage and they have let us down. that will not happen with me. again, you are not going to support me even though you know i'm the best thing that could ever happen to israel. i will be that. i know what you will not support me. i don't want your money. isn't it crazy? it's true. i wanted your money and i think would have a dam goodn -- damn good chance. geisler to give me millions. this poor jeb bush with his low energy, it is sad. i came up with that term in a became so defining. it's like having it on his four head. it is sad. he raised $125 million which means he has controlled -- is totally controlled by the people they gave him the money. that's what you don't want to give me money. you want to control your own politician, that is fine. think about that. five was ago i was with you. it was better than the? -- who was better than the? i give 350,000 dollars to the republican governors association and never got a letter thank you. $350,000. i did not receive one letter, not one letter from one governor. stupid. but why would he give any more? i don't get a thank you letter. politicians forget. they generally are not competent. the one thing they are good at is getting elected and that is what you are going to end up having. i wonder support the don't want your money. now let's take some questions ok? different than the other guys. he does a great job. in history to make. we all have tough deals. some are good and some are bad. sam? how are you, sam? good man. very nice to see you. i know everybody in this audience. another. i'm a dealmaker. i believe i can do both sides together. but i said it will take six months. at the end of six months and maybe sooner, with us we haven't deal instinct -- we have a deal instinct. you can tell in two seconds whether or not you're going to make a deal. i will know quickly if i can put the deal together. i use that in this interview with perhaps the hardest deal in history to put together. there is probably no tougher deal. it would make me so happy because there is so much violence in so much that -- death. i said you have to have a commitment to make. i don't know that israel has a commitment to make it and i don't know if the other side has the commitment to make it. with that said, we have a good chance of winning if you look at what is going on. as a dealmaker i don't the give away a lot of cards are talking about how i feel about this and that. i would save it for the vote -- moment when you walk into the room. i think people know where i stand. wouldn't it be great if they could make a deal? not a phony deal the last a week and then that thing start happening again. i will give it. obama said it will not happen during -- he gave up on this before it started. i think it will be a great thing for israel and a great thing for both sides is a real deal to be made. i will give it my best. i'm a great deal maker. i've made a lot of money. i will give it my best. it would be greater than deal to be made.... text mr. trump: israel has given a lot. i think the public relations for israel has not been so great. israel has given a lot but has not been given a lot of credit for what they have given. i don't know if you agree with that. clean slate and say everybody is even and we love everybody and let's see if we can do something. i do think this and right from the beginning, and i'm saying it now even though it might connect the hobby later on. it has to be said that israel has given a lot. i don't know whether or not they want to go that far in the final step in a will be up to them. israel has not been given the credit that they deserve for what they have done. i will say that. that is it.... text you support? mr. trump: i want to wait until he meet with bb. i'm leaving for israel. that attitude. you can make a great deal educated -- but you can't do when with the attitude never been to shove it. don't worry about it. you will be very happy. treated very badly. i think our president has been unbelievably rude to bb. i don't know how many people like bb but i think he was rude. we will talk about deals after the fact which is a shame. i think iran deal is the worst single thing perhaps, and i have been pretty good at predicting things. i think ill be the worst -- i think it will be the worst single thing ever to happen to israel. i think for obama to make a deal and for anybody that loves israel to support him or the democratic party is impossible to believe. but if i get in, i will straighten it out. it will be straightened out. it will be straightened tough and fast. if i get in, the $150 billion is gone. that hurts me and it hurts the people in this room. the $150 billion is gone because it will be gone before we can get there. we are talking about a year and more. although the election is very quick coming up. it is now less than a year. we have the i was starting on february 1 -- iowa starting on february 1. for a person like me it's very exciting.... text mr. trump: i have not been working too much with the arab leadership. i make commercials for bb and i do note that will happy with the negotiation. i did people screaming at me -- i get people screaming at me. the king of jordan seems like a nice man. i don't know. we will see. a lot of people like him and some people don't. i think i will probably be able -- i took some heat because i get along with democrats and liberals and conservatives and republicans. that is what i was. i was a business person and i get along with everybody. we have to get along with everybody. i say wait a minute,. i'm a businessman i live in manhattan. it's all democrat. republicans don't even want people for the most part. if they do, they will get 5%. i have to get along with everybody. i think that will be a tremendous asset. right now, we have gridlock in washington. we have people that they don't talk. i have been a very political person, always. years ago, the republicans and democrats, they liked each other, they got along. we would have different views on things, but, in the evenings, they would go out and have dinner together with their families. you don't see that anymore. there is total hatred and total gridlock. i will give you one point. you have countries leaving the united states. they are leaving for better taxes, and a lot of things. pfizer. how big is pfizer? thousands of jobs will be lost. they are also leaving because we have $2.5 trillion -- at least -- that is out of drink and these companies cannot get back because of bureaucracy and horrible agreements, but because the taxes are too high. they actually take the company, and move the company to the money. the republicans and democrats totally agree that the money should come back. for three years, they cannot get a deal. there is no leadership. it is gridlock. this is an example of something -- all the people appear, they all agree. they are politicians. all talk, no action. it is not like something where they can't agree. this is something that everybody agrees, the money should pour into this country, we should use this money. they agree, and they cannot get it done because of gridlock and incompetent leadership.... text mr. trump: honestly, i don't think anybody can say. she says she is, but all of a sudden, she says maybe less so than you thought because she is going far to the other side. bernie sanders has brought her to positions that she did not want to be at p a you look at some of the things she is saying right now. i will tell you what, she does not have the strength or energy to help israel. she doesn't. support, they need strength. they need real power. you look at the countries, as they fall over there, and israel has some difficulties. one thing, and i think you will all admit it, these people are fighting really dirty. they fight better than we used to think. 15 years ago, with my friends from israel -- i have a lot of friends from israel -- they used to smile and laugh. now, they are saying, they are dirty fighters. they are tough. they are not the jv. obama said they are the jv. they are not, folks. they are tough. we need general george patton, macarthur. i do not want my generals on television saying, isis is very tough. i saw a guy the other day saying, isis is very tough, i don't know. general george patton, they did not like him because he was foul mouthed, a brilliant guy. he would have never made it. we need patton. we need a genius like macarthur. we have those people. i will find that person. we will knock the crap out of them. we are going to win. thing i know it is not is global warming. that is the one thing i know isn't. civilization, and he is worried about global warming, which a lot of people think is a hoax. by the way, i have one so many environmental awards. i want a air, crystal water, i want a lot of things. global warming -- you noticed a change the name. they go global warming, climate change. i hear a lot about extreme weather. how can you mess with extreme weather. it is a disgrace, what is going on. to have this man and verizon's -- and embarrass us to say that global warming is our biggest threat, we have to get him out so fast. thank goodness we only have one year left. inc. you.mr. trump: what a crowd. this is unbelievable. unbelievable. cameras, turnover here. turnover here, cameras. they never want to show the crowds we get. this is a movement, folks. this is a big, beautiful movement. and no other republican would say this. but we will play for california. we will win california. you watch. nobody else can get this. i want to thank everybody. amazing. i want to thank sarah palin and all of the people that came here. and the speeches they made today. i really appreciate it. this is unbelievable. i don't know how big this room is. but this is a lot of people. thank you. bernie sanders away. and we won over 17, we will go all the way. we will make america great again. it is going to happen. going to happen. remember. i like it. darrell, thank you. where is darrell? i appreciate it. duncan, thank you very much. right from the beginning. you better vote for these guys. we are never letting them go. i will tell you why. nobody likes our vets. and we are going to cherish, take care of our vets. on tuesday, we are announcing -- you know, when i skipped the speech with fox -- and i like fox but he did not treat me very well -- i did a little speech. and i have been doing this before this. i said maybe we can raise the money for the vets, rihtght? i said we would raise half $1 million. i said maybe we could do more. i said maybe we can do $1 million. and a couple of my friends from las vegas, carl icahn, we have so many different -- mike perlmutter. these guys gay between half a million and $1 million. i said $3 million. maybe we'll get it up to $5 billion. maybe we will get up to $6 million. and we raised more than five and a half million dollars. for the vets. military. by the way, bigger, better, stronger than ever before. but a big part of that is that we are going to take care of our veterans, for the first time in a long time. we love our vets. thank you very much, fellas. we appreciate it. and he is not a vet. thank you, everybody. phil, don. like. thank you. we had a crowd that was just magnificent. really, we are going to win the state of california. because people are tired. people are tired of the hillary clintons of the worlds. it is all talk, no action. it is crooked hillary. same stuff. our country cannot take another four years of obama. that is what you will be getting. i tell you. i mean, just take a look at the tsa, your airports, take a look at what is going on with our military, that we love. we cannot be isis. we are going to be them quickly. we're going to knock the hell out of them. we should not have been there in the first place. but we will be going, and we will have to rebuild our country. we spent $5 trillion in the middle east. and right now, we have absolutely nothing for it. if we would not have spent $.10, we would've been better off. believe me, we will rebuild our country, our military. we will take care of our needs, including our vets. and we are going to bring it back, phone. it is what happened quickly. and we're going to build the wall. the wall, we're going to build the wall. we're going to build the wall. latinos for trump! i love you. you know, build the wall.... text mr. trump: thank you. oh, we are going to build it. and if we do not, we will get papa to do it. he is the big guy in town. he employs a lot of people, lots of jobs, lots of education, health care. we love them. thank you. so, we have had an exciting time. when started this journey on june 16, not so long ago, almost a year, hard to believe, i have to say we have been on the cover of "time" magazine. it is really about the movement. we have created a movement. it is a movement of common sense, smart, not going to be ripped off anymore. get him out of here. get them out. -- we are doing great with african-americans. they want jobs. we are losing our jobs to everybody. we are being taken advantage of the world. we are losing our jobs to everybody. we are going to bring back jobs like we have not seen in this country for many, many decades. and people that are not doing well, they are going to start doing very, very well. believe me. ok. so, on june 16, i came down the escalator with my wife, malania. i said, wow, i have never seen, outside of the academy awards, this kind of press. but look at what we have today. mostly live cameras. some of the most dishonest people in the universe. and spin them around a bit. show them. take them. spin them around. they don't want to do that. that is why i love my protesters. because the only time they show how big our crowds are, the only time, is when there is a protester. that is something they think. but i love our protesters, right? don't need that. we don't need that. so, i started talking about illegal immigration. tremendous problem. i don't think it's a be a problem that would even be discussed, frankly, if we did not do it and put it as part of our campaign. and we talked about bad trades, really bad trades. we are losing $500 billion a year with china. we are losing $58 billion a year with mexico. we are losing over $100 billion a year with japan. and every single country, no matter what -- name a country -- we lose. we do not win anymore. we're going to start winning. with trade, military. we are going to start winning again. that is grossly incompetent. they do not know what the hell they are doing. they do not know what they are doing. so i thought, this is japan, in hiroshima, and that is fine. this is long as he does not apologize, absolutely fine. who cares? but he said today that our trading partners, and countries that we have relationships with, they're rattled. and i said, so good. and a very, very powerful guy, a very great guy, i will not use his name but most of you know, i saw him last week. knows everybody. highly respected. he said donald, i have no idea this would happen. but i'm being called by all of these countries, germany, japan, saudi arabia, think of it. we defend these countries. and they do not pay us what they are supposed to be doing. germany, saudi arabia, japan, south korea, many others. then you look at the nato countries -- 28 total. many of them are not living up to obligations. so, we have common sense. we have visibility. what happens is this. he said, i cannot believe it. i did not like your rhetoric. and i happen to be a nice person, folks. i would get along so great with these countries. i would get along so great. but you know what? they are our friends, allies. but they have been abusing us. they have been abusing us. 40 years ago, when they could've done whatever we wanted, we own $19 trillion. it is going up to $21 trillion because of the omnibus budget, which was not so good. that is the budget that allows people to come in from syria, people across the border, fund obamacare, which we should not have done. cannot believe it. and he is like the biggest of the big. he said i disagreed with your style. i really did. i disagreed. and yet, now all the countries are calling. how do we get along with trump? we think he is going to win. how do we do it? they are not going to take it vantage. no more, folks. we have had enough. no more. so, the press is dishonest. and what they say, and what i say, is very different. i watched hillary clinton last night, which is hard to do because you the very boring speaker. and i will not say, i will not say because it is not politically correct. it is not a nice thing to say. but i will not say it. that she shouts into the microphone, and it drives everybody crazy. so, i will not say that. but i found it very hard to watch. and then she lives. es. now, i called someone a liar. i don't say that anymore. that person is now in the past. with hillary, we say cricket hillary. but i have to add another word, because i never thought of this for last night, she was saying that i want japan armed with nuclear weapons. i never said. she said i love the dictator in north korea. i don't love them. bad guy, ok? bad guy. she was saying all sorts of things, so bad and so false, total lies. we are not want to let her get away with it. we are not going to let her get away. watch what i do say. we do have tremendous deficits. we are losing a fortune. our jobs picture is terrible. do not believe the 5%. the real number is at least 20%. when you look for a job, and i can tell people -- raise your hands. look at the size of his room. packed to every corner. you know what? people in the polls love me on security. and there's nothing more important than national security. they love me. honestly, we would not have kraus like this -- it is everywhere we go. they're as big as the room. there are thousands of people outside the cannot get in. ok? and it is not like, you know, friday afternoon. you could be doing something else, i guess? right? are these the greatest places --the truck rallie the trump rallies? donald trump rally. that, i can tell you. room. not just what the people in this room represent, which is largely love. because it is love. we are going to take care of everybody. including people that do not know if they like the people in this room. because we are going to unify our country. we are when you take care of hispanics, get jobs, take care of the african-americans who are really suffering in this country. and hillary clinton cannot do a damn thing for them. and she never will. and guess what? she does not want to. ok? she could not care less. so, it has worked out beyond what we thought. we were supposed to be, in july, in cleveland fighting for our lives. and i say, what you talking about? we're going to win on the first ballot, right? because they found a protester. look at those cameras, those bloodsuckers. they found a protester. thank you, protester. thank you, protester. thank you. get him out. get them out. get them the hell out of here. they are usually single. you can never hear them. but what you year are people saying get them out. my people make so much noise. it is true. so, let me just tell you, bernie sanders has been great. we like bernie. i like bernie. you know why? he does not have a chance. and what he is doing to her is incredible. because the system is rate against bernie. if you ever notice, he wins, wins. you watch the pundits, these guys, the dishonest ones. they say he cannot i have to say our system was rigged, too, except for one thing. if you win by massive landslides every week, it is no longer rigged. it is like the boxers. that is what happened. the system was not meant for me to come in as an outsider that built a great company. i built a great, great company. when i filed -- in fact, papa doug knows when i filed my papers, over 100 pages in federal elections, and i filed. tremendous company, tremendous iconic assets. unbelievable cash flow. very little debt. makes a lot of money. and they were so unhappy to see it. but i say it for a different reason. i started off, by the way, with a $1 million loan and have a net worth of much more than $10 billion. i don't even want it. all i want to say is this is the kind of thinking we need to straighten out this mess they have given us in our great country. this is the thinking we need. this is what we need. so let me tell you a little bit about san diego, because we are talking about a rigged system, right? i have to say this. i was told, laura said don't do that. we are going to win. but san diego is special for a lot of reasons. some of my best friends live here. you may have the best weather on earth. i have always heard it. i have always heard it. we have a couple of minutes. does everybody have a little time? president. the trial is going to take place sometime in november. there should be no trial. this should have been dismissed on summary judgment easily. everybody says it, but i have a judge who is a hater of donald trump. a hater. he's a hater. his name is gonzalo cuiial. and he is not doing the right thing. and i figure what the hell? why not talk about it for two minutes. should i talk about it? yes? here is the story. very simple story. a number of years ago, a long time ago now, i open up a little school. we called it trump university, changed the name. we had probably -- a lot of people, like 10,000 people. hugh, did you like it? she said she was there, and she liked it. here is the story. so we open up, and it really was successful from the beginning. then we get these class action lawyers. they immediately sue. my people did a good job for a couple of reasons. one of the reasons was they had everybody that took the course sign like a report card. we had 10 people. -- 10,000 people. almost that many signed a report card. and the report cards are unbelievable. without that, it is their word versus these people or me. but i am getting railroaded by a legal system, and frankly they should be ashamed. i will be here in november. hey, if i win as president, it is a civil case. i could have settled this case numerous times. but i don't want to settle cases when we are right. i don't believe in it. when you start settling cases, do you know what happens? everybody sues you because you get known as a settler. one thing about me, i am not known as the settler. and people understand with this whole thing, with this whole deal with the lawyers, class action lawyers are the worst. it is a scam. here is what happens. we are in front of a very hostile judge. the judge was appointed by barak obama. he should recuse himself. he has given us ruling after ruling, negative. i have a top laura who said he has never seen anything like this before. so what happens is we get sued. we have a magistrate named william gallo who truly hates us. the good news is it is a jair trial. -- jury trial but we can even get a full jury. we are entitled to a jury, and we want a jury of 12 peer. first of all, it should be dismissed. watch how we when it because i have been treated unfairly. very much like with the veterans, where i raised all that money, but on tuesday i am announcing all of the groups we have given almost $6 million to. you turn things around. here is the story. we have a law firm named robin skeller. it is the spin-off of two law firms. two of those partners went to jail for an extended period of time for doing very bad things legally. this same group is the lawyers against. what happens is the judge, who happens to be mexican, which is great. i think that is fine. i think the mexicans are going to end up loving donald trump when i give all these jobs. i think they are going to love . i think they are going to love me. here is what happens. we get sued by a woman, and she turns out to be a disaster for them. her name is tarla markov. she rated on the report card, it is 1-5. five being excellent, the highest mark. she gave me a five across the board, all fives. she then did a video saying it was fantastic, the most glowing video you have ever seen. she then sued me because they she wanted her money back. she was such a disaster that this judge -- it was her against us. she was such a disaster that this judge allowed her to get out of the case. but we want her to be in the case. the lawyer said your honor, we want her to be in the case. he said she is out of the case. so now we have others. we say dismiss the case. she is out of the case. no, we won't dismiss it. so we have 10,000 servers from former students given trump university rave reviews. it is called, www.98percentapproval.com. so we have makov giving us these great numbers. then we have another one. bob. they used him. jeb bush, low energy. we have these guys making commercials. in all fairness, it hasn't hurt me much. every once in a while, you have one. we are going to win. but if i don't win, and even if i do win, we want to -- my kids will open it up again, because it was a terrific school. it was good. so we have a guy named bob. he appeared in a tv attack adam. they used him on ads against me? i had 66,000 negative ads, over $100 million in florida alone during the big primary, which i won in a landslide. we had 15,000 negative ads, and i won. i almost wonder what do ads mean? bob appeared in tv attack ads even though he rated the programs a five, meaning excellent, the top mark across the board. his primary complaint was he would have liked to have more comfortable chairs. unbelievable. then we have a guy named art. and he was late to file. so he signed a survey in which he rated the program either a four or a five. i will tell you this. how smart was it to ask everybody that took the course to sign a report card? now you know what the lawyers are saying? the lawyers are saying but they were forced. 10,000 people were forced. we actually have videotapes of people. they weren't forced. a professor said would you sign? how do you like it? that is it. so he signed all fives and fours out of a possible five. and he indicated his only complaint was a lack of nice lunch sandwiches. think of it. so he was late. so they went to the judge, and the judge said he is late. why didn't you file under rico? organized crime? we have all been sued in business for rico. even papa john probably. but they ended it pretty much. i get sued. here is a guy that gives me all good marks. he is late. so they are starting a new lawsuit. this law firm gave a lot of money to the attorney general of new york, who is a total lightweight. his name is attorney general eric snyderman. he accepts their money, goes to meet with president obama when in syracuse and in the next day or two files a lawsuit against me because in my opinion they gave them a contribution and then goes to see obama. you see how the system works, folks? it is a bad system, let me tell you. so obama meets with this dopey eric snyderman, who hates or ur governor and wants to run for governor, but i don't think it is going to happen. they go up to syracuse, meets with obama, and he files a lawsuit. so bottom line is this. people said you can settle. a lot of people said before you run you should settle. i said i don't care. the people understand it. and they use it. so when i have 10,000 people, and when we have mostly unbelievable reviews, how do you settle? and in fact, when the case started originally, i said how can i settle when i have a review like this? now i should have settled, but i am glad i didn't. i will be seeing you in november either as president. and i will say this. i have all these great reviews, but i will say this. i think the judge should be ashamed of himself. i think it is a disgrace he is doing this. and i look forward to going before a jury, not this judge, and we will win that trial. we will win that trial. check it out. check it out, folks. november 28, i think it is scheduled for. it should not be a trial. it should be a summary judgment dismissal. one of the great lawyers said how do you get sued under rico for a guy that took the course, loved the course, said great things about the course, and then you get sued under rico? it is a disgrace. it is a rigged system. i had a rigged system, except we won by so much. this court system, the judges in this court system, federal court. they ought to look into that judge because what he is doing is a total disgrace. ok? but we will come back in november. wouldn't that be wild if i am president and come back and do a civil case? everybody likes it. ok. this is called life, folks. here is what we are going to do. we are going to run this country properly with heart, with passion. we are going to save social security. we are going to save, without cuts, save social security. we are going to bring back and save our medicare, which people want to cut. we're going to knock out -- remember this, knock out common core. our educational system is a mess. we are going to bring our education to a local level, and we are going to do great. repeal and replace obama care. we are going to save our second amendment. our second amendment. the n.r.a. last week gave me their full endorsement. the first time in the history of the n.r.a., the earliest endorsement they have ever given. and i am honored. and by the way, they are great people. they are incredible people. they are great people. we are going to start very soon. we are going to renegotiate our trade deals that are killing our country. we are going to renegotiate with china. we are going to have better relationships than we have right now. we are going to renegotiate our deals. we are going to renegotiate everything. everything is up for grabs. wait until you see the incredible potential this country has, when we are not run by people with no common sense, with no business ability. frankly, with no heart. they have zero heart, and people that are incompetent. wait until you see what we are able to do in a fairly quick time. we won new york big. we won everything but we won new york big. new hampshire was my first victory, so i love new hampshire. you look at the streams, the beautiful trees, and the rivers. i love you, too. thank you. it was my first victory. we won new hampshire. that was supposed to be bush, and he spent many more times than me. wouldn't it be nice to hear as a president i have spent less money on this campaign than anybody else by far and have had the best results by far? isn't that nice? the old post office. it is two years, but i like to say one year. we are opening in september a hotel at least 1.5 years ahead of schedule. under budget, and yet it is a higher-quality hotel than anybody ever saw before. i think it will end up being one of the great hotels of the world. we are ahead of schedule, under budget. and yet, we have increased the scope of the hotel. and it is going to be something our country is proud of. i made the deal with the gsa, government services. one of the most competitive deals in the history of government services. they made it for two reasons. number one, they wanted to make sure it gets done. they looked at my balance sheet and almost fell off their chairs. they said it will get done. they don't want a half built hotel. the other thing, they wanted a great concept. wait until you see this. i love opening it on september 15. maybe i should wait until around november 2 or 3, because that is going to be a great opening. the problem with you guys is you tend to forget we have like a two-week-span, we have a two-week memory span. i will open up later and still be so far. but it is going to be fantastic. that is what should be doing for our country. see our roads coming in so far above budget. we don't build bridges for the most part. in the old days, we used to build bridges. you go to china, bridges all over the place. it makes our bridges look like toys. beautiful airports. you go to middle eastern countries, they have airports the likes of which you have never seen. the most incredible structures, the most incredible buildings. and then we fly home and land at laguardia with potholes all over the runway. it is true. or kennedy, newark, or l.a.x. and it is a disgrace. we have become a third world country, folks. and it is not going to happen any longer. not going to happen any longer. in every state. it has never happened before. won by landslides, where even the slime sitting over there -- they cannot say it anymore because now we are getting 78%. they used to say, "donald trump has not cracked 50%. yes, he has won, but he has not cracked 50%." boy are we cracking 50% now. more importantly, in the history of the republican party, we have received more votes than anybody by far. by millions. 10 states. and they will never say that. they don't say that, so i might as will tell you. you know the expression, if you don't toot your own horn, you better do it because nobody else is going to do it for you? this slime is never going to do it. i just read a story by a woman named parker and a woman named paperman in the "new york times." instead of saying donald trump won the republican primary, they say, "his style of negotiation and the way he runs and the fact he did this and that." they say, "the republican party -- " the republican party is coming together quickly. you just saw darrell issa, duncan, all these people. these are the best. it is really coming together quickly. we are up to over 90% in terms of approval rates. last time, we had this clown named mitt romney that let us all down. i backed him and worked for him. john mccain lost. mitt romney lost. i said this time we are going to do it ourselves. we are going to win. we are going to win. and we are going to win. don't even think about it. before we forget, we have won the nomination big, by numbers you can't believe. you have got to go out and vote in two weeks anyway because we want the mandate. we have to have the mandate. the state of reporters, wiseguys -- these two reporters, wiseguys, not talented people. they say donald trump is having a hard time bringing the republican party together. why don't they say i win the nomination? i give the vets almost $6 million. i don't have to give them anything. i give a speech, and i say, let's raise money for the vets. i was thinking maybe we would get $1 million. we are giving a full list on tuesday. but i got these guys. i take something where nobody even thinks about it. you raise this fantastic amount of money. i give it to all these organizations. instead of praise, they knock you. these two reporters, and they always pretend like they are your friend. i call it the failing new york times. it is a disgrace. by the way, the washington post is not much better. they have 22 people on me right now. i will tell you why. i have always heard if you are a very successful person, you cannot run for office. you especially cannot run for president. the "washington post" has 22 people on me now, 22 reporters. that is because the person that owns the "washington post" also has a big thing in amazon, which is a much more important thing. so he uses the "washington post" for power and he thinks he will get the politicians to do what he wants, and he probably will. but me, i could not care less. he does not want to pay tax on the internet. he will use that so they will not tax amazon on the internet. meanwhile, department stores are going out of business because it is unfair competition. now he has a threat in terms of monopoly. he knows i am the only one that says it. the politicians are afraid to say it because he owns the "washington post." the other day, i get a call. they had 22 guys slopping all the stuff together, and they are doing a book that comes out in august. make sure he is ok. make sure he is perfect. are you ok? make sure. we love these people. may have been standing here for six hours. institutions out. no politician is going to do that because they care too much. i care too, but i care about doing the right thing. the "new york times" last week made a fool of themselves. they did a story on the front page on sunday. a massive picture of me standing with beauty pageant contestants. then they interviewed 50 or 60 people. most of them said good things. the few of them revolted, they said that is not what we said or implied. we like donald trump. we love donald trump. donald trump treated us with respect. one of them got married. i said, isn't that terrible, that story? they wrote it very disrespectfully. not very serious charges, in all fairness. they wrote it very disrespectfully. i saw her on television. i saw her again on television. she was saying it was incorrect what they said. what they said was meant maliciously, and i like and respect donald trump and he always treated me great and you should not write like that. and then i had a very fantastic young woman who was a very successful member of the beauty pageants. i see carrie is here right now. we love carrie. she married a great athlete. they are standing together. they are a great couple. carrie told him what was going on, and they mischaracterized her. they said they spoke to her and never spoke to her and they wrote false stuff. they wrote about another one. that was false. they wrote about a construction woman that worked for me. i gave her the break of a lifetime. i let her build a major building in new york city where she was the construction manager. probably never happened to a woman before. i gave a woman a break. my father said donald, don't do that. he is from the old school. i said it will be good. he said you are making a mistake, don't do it. i said it will be fine. he said whatever you want, to let her do it. i gave her the break of her lifetime. when she left, she wanted to come back because the grass is always greener. she left. now all of a sudden, she loves trump. for a long time she has wanted to come back, for many years. i love e-mails. they never go away. you hear that, hillary? they never go away, hillary! i have people that will retrieve those e-mails. because what hillary has done is criminal, folks. let's get back to the "new york times." i give her the break of a lifetime. she writes a book glowing about donald trump. she said some strange things. she said in the book donald trump is not sexist. who would say that? unless you have evil thoughts. is that correct, carrie? she puts in the book something to the effect that donald trump is not sexist. it was a good book about me. she wants to come back, so she is e-mailing to my secretaries for years. "i want to come back, donald trump is the greatest." "he is not a sexist person, he is the greatest person." and then she is in the "new york times" saying i was a horrible person. one of my men said she had the most foul mouth of any human being i have ever seen. she used to walk into a group of men and start using the f word, and i had to bring her into my office to calm her down. she was going crazy. she writes all these letters that trump is the greatest. at least somebody will say good because i did not know carrie would say great after reading negative stuff. i did not know roanne would come out and say great after reading negative stuff. then i saw this one. i say i gave her a job no other woman would be given. i was 25 years ahead of my time with women. to this day, i have women making more money for the same job as my men. and i'm happy about it. and i expect a lawsuit any day from the men. they will sue me because they are not making it, because we are living in that kind of society. my men will be suing me on monday morning because they are not making as much. i don't care because we are doing great with women. i don't believe the polls. we are doing great with women. women for trump, thank you. wow. thank you very much. i think we are doing great. by the way, the numbers with women are going up. women want to see strong borders. they want to see a strong military. they want to see strength. they want to see strength. and i will tell you what, they want to see jobs. they want an economy that will boom. everybody admits that what i will do for the economy nobody else can do. so here is the end result. "the new york times" calls and they want to meet. they met. they are so embarrassed. who is with the "new york times?" where is the "new york times" reporter? i call it the failing new york times. the "new york times" wants to meet. they met with one of my guys. they had a good meeting. i think they just don't want to be sued if you want to know the truth. but these people are very dishonest. "the new york times," the "washington post." most of the people. some of them are fine. not many, but some of them are fine. when somebody hits you, you have to fight back. you know what i said to this barbara? i had friends that called me and said you are not very cool. i said to barbara, maybe you should not be eating that piece of candy. think. ever heard. she said, "he was obviously talking about my weight." give me a break. we are so politically correct now our country is dying from within. we have to get back to business. we have to rebuild our country. we have got to rebuild our infrastructure. remember this. almost $5 trillion spent in the middle east, and we don't have enough room to fix a road right outside that is in horrible shape. ok? we can't fix our highways, our tunnels. and we are going to get it going, folks. you are going to be so proud of your country once again. so here is the story. i came here, and i am leading in the polls. we are leading in almost every poll now. it is so great. i came here and said specifically -- we were in costa mesa. we had a tremendous rally. were you there? 31,000 people. nobody even showed it because there were a couple of thugs outside burning the american flag, holding other flags up in the air. they were burning and stomping on a car, a police car, stomping on it. by the way, did you see when he got off the car? he broke his -- did you see that? he tried to pretend he was not hurt. that was adrenaline. he was hurt. he walked away and said that was painful. all you saw was this thug and people burning the american flag and holding up flags from other countries. these are thugs. they hardly showed the rally inside where we had the parents of young children killed by illegal immigrants, where we had the most amazing lovefest like this. even more people. we had the most amazing lovefest. a friend of mine came to me. he came to dallas. we had 21,000 people at the mavericks arena. he said, can i ask you a question? how do you do this? you're going to speak in front of all these people. a very good musicians said trump is the greatest in the world without a guitar, meaning without an instrument. i have got to stand up here by myself. if i bomb, they will let us know about it. he said to me, how do you do this? this is one of the most successful people in the country, in the world. he looked at this massive audience like this today and like i had a little while ago in fresno. he looked at this massive audience and said, how can you get up there and speak? do you have notes? i say no. do you have something? i have a good head, a good memory. i have a very good memory. he said, how do you do it? i said, honestly, it is not hard because there is so much love in the room. it is unbelievable. there is love in the room. we want to take our country back. we are tired of being the stupid people all over the world. we are tired of it, and we are going to end it.... text mr. trump: thank you. i love ending this way. we are on live television. it is embarrassing because we get crazy ratings, so they take advantage of all of us. they put me on all the time. look at all of the cameras. when hillary comes, you have no cameras. nobody wants to watch. it is always difficult because you have to make different speeches. you cannot be on live television all the time and make the same speech because people say he said that this morning, he said that yesterday. the nice part is i can talk about current events. i can talk about things like we mentioned before, the t.s.a., how badly it is managed. i can talk about our vets, how badly things over the last two days came down. our veterans administration is a corrupt enterprise. you ought to get the judge to look into that instead of wasting everybody's time so he can take advantage of donald trump. he should be ashamed of himself. here is the story, folks. i like to end it this way. how many ways can you end something? somebody said "make america great again" is a negative statement. i said it is a positive statement because we are going to make america great again. listen. we don't win anymore as a country. we don't win with our military, education, anything. now they want to take your second amendment away? that is not going to happen. but we don't win anymore. i love saying it and we cannot do it any better. we are going to start winning again big-league. we are going to knock the -- out of isis. we are going to win for our great vets. they have not been treated properly. illegal immigrants get better treatment in many cases than our veterans, and that is not going to happen. so we are going to win for our vets. we are going to win on education. no more common core. bring it down. we want it local. we are going to win with health care. we are going to win at the border. we are going to win at trade. we are going to win so much that you people are going to be calling your president saying, "please, mr. president, we don't want to win anymore. you are winning too much. you're driving us crazy." i'm going to say i am sorry, but we are going to keep winning and make america great again! i love you. thank you. i love you, san diego. get out and vote. get out and vote. we are going to win california. get out and vote. thank you, everybody.mr. trump: thank you so much, isn't she great? how good is she? there are a lot of people here. thank you so much, sarah. we landed and the snow was pouring in, it was so beautiful. i have that we were landing in alaska. it is beautiful. it is such an a couple turnout -- incredible turnout. we are doing so well and we are so proud. we love wisconsin, it is a special place. i think that we will do really well. before, i am self funding my campaign. i do not know if it is worth it, i will let you know in about a year or less. but i think it means a lot. the reason is, all of these people i am running against, the republicans and the democrats, they are not doing it the way that i am. when hillary clinton gets money from the oil industry and all the other industries, when john kasich gets money from the people he is getting money from, they totally control him. believe me. when ted cruz, lying ted -- believe me, lying said -- ted. i have met a lot tougher than him, by have never seen anybody lie like lying ted. when he gets money from the banks, oil, gas, from everything, believe me, they have him. i get money from me. i really am here for one reason, to represent you. to represent you. believe me. everybody who comes in. i said, yeah, but i like the big. we have 5000 -- where is the long? -- mall? we have 5000 people in the mall, i said enough, let them have protesters. who cares? we have 5000 people on the other side and i feel so guilty, let's all say, we love you.... text mr. trump: we are doing this to make, look at that guy. stand up. do i look like that? can you believe it? look at that. alright, it looks great. good job. it is a simple, beautiful theme, "make america great again." we have so many problems, so far worse then you understand. i know the numbers. the governor gave a plaque a year ago when he thought that i liked him. i do, he came to my office, he gave me a plaque. i bet that he wishes he could do that over again. i need to show that plaque. i keep saying, no, i should not have brought it. i want to show it. we will be here. i think that it will be an amazing couple of days. i think that we are going to win. i really do. . i saw the outpouring that we had. somebody else was here and they had 300 people, and we have thousands in here, 5000 out there. i think we have more than 2000 in here. i think that we are going to win. let's just see what happens. i know one thing, we are going to dwell. -- well. well does not win -- mean anything. have you ever heard of a man named vince lombardi? in this neck of the woods? what did he say about winning? right. these three players were tough cookies. two of them are friends of mine and they played for your team. they were great players. vince lombardi was not a big guy. he walked in and he was angry, you could see, and he came over to the table. he saw these three guys, twice his size, they could have swatted him. i will not tell you what he did, he actually grabbed one of them by the shirt. today, you cannot do that. then he left. he gave him an earful. i want to tell you, this big strong guy, he weighed about 250 then. that is like 310 now. and he left him a stormed out -- left, stormed out. and this guy was shaken. i said to myself, the reason that vince, i have great respect for him as a coach, and i love bill belichick, certain people you need to respect. and i said at one of my other meetings, tom brady is a friend of mine. he is great. nice, right? you think your quarterback is great. tom told me that. vince lombardi, the reason he got away, his winning. if he did not win, he cannot get away with that. he would not be a look and get that kind of fear, respect, but fear from a big, strong player. but he won. he had one many times -- won many times. and the respect they had for him was a credible -- incredible. we do not win. we cannot be isis. -- beat isis. we cannot beat trade, china, mexico, they think we are stupid. mexico, japan, vietnam, india, any nation, name a nation -- they do well. it does not make a difference. they do well, and the more i think about it, the more i realize, they do well for a very specific reason. not that the politicians are so stupid, many of them are, many of them are not, but because politicians take contributions from people representing certain other parts of the world, or companies involved in other parts of the world, and they do things not in your best interest. when i say i am self funding, i have turned down more money, i bet that any human being has turned down for political run. frankly, everybody takes money. $5 million, $2 million, $1 million, jeb bush had $100,000 or so. i do know -- i do not know if i get credit for it. many people say, i like donald trump, i like ted cruz, that is not a very comparison. i am so much better. much better. you know why, because i am working for you. they talk about working for you, but they are not. they are working for the next election, campaign contributions, what else? who knows what else they take? who knows what else they work for? they are working at a minimum campaign conservation. people come up to me -- our politicians are so stupid, why would they make deals like that? there was a deal recently, a committee made an incredible deal and politicians approved it. and people say, politicians are so stupid. no, they are represent by the smartest people they have ever seen, special interest groups, lobbyists. some of these guys, it says ted cruz, the lobbyist, tattooed on their forehead. i can deal with ted cruz. they raise a lot of money for him. and when they need a vote, i am not going to vote for that. you have to, we gave you $2 million for your campaign when nobody else would put up the money. do i know this is the better than anybody? on june 16, i only started this political stuff on june 16, i was before that, a big contributor. it is a system, it is not good. it is a system and it is what we have. you have guys -- it says hillary on this guy's forehead. you go to him, you want hillary. you go to another guy if you want john kasich. another guy if you want ted cruz. 100%, 100%, by the way, they will not always get what they want. maybe 90%. there are some things you cannot do. but they get what they want a lot, they are professionals. they are very good at it. so, when i am self funding, i hope people appreciate it. it means a lot, i do not go anybody, anything. i do not onwe them. look, i built a great company, and amazing company with cash flow and some of the greatest assets in the world, worth over $10 billion. i started with a very small loan and created a great company, some of the great assets and tremendously low debt. the reason i tell you that, that is the kind of thinking we need in the country to solve many of our problems. about a couple of these things, it affects you very much and we probably have business owners here. we need to get rid of that. we will start with obamacare, that is a killer for you and to the country. it is a killer. obamacare is too expensive for the country to afford and it does not work. for anybody, it does not work. you go 65% increases this year and people telling me that they have never seen anything like it. it folds, it closes up, obamacare will close up. when you have it, it is no good anyways. we will terminate at and we will end up with a great health care plan that will cost you less money and be much better. it is, but hopefully they will not need health care for 40 years. but they are still enthusiastic. they do not like obamacare and hopefully they will not need to worry about it. ultimately, they need to worry about the cost, because it is unbearable. the kind of money we are talking about is unbearable. we are going to end, gore, we are going to bring education -- we will protect our second amendment, we are going to do all of the things you heard me saying. all of it. $19 trillion, we cannot talk the little stuff. there is going to be cuts of things you will not believe. we will save social security, caught -- cut all of the fraud. you do not mind cutting the fraud out? we are good to take care of the vets and build the military, bigger, stronger than ever before. successful. do not forget, they are after our jobs. they have no choice, they need to take it away from us. you will treat us nicely. that is the next donald trump, bigger and better. not even a contest. good luck, kids. what about the one in the middle, are you going to be the most successful? great. great job. that is what we love to see. my daughter just had a beautiful , beautiful son. are going to turn this thing around fast. let's talk about a couple of things. we are the police department for the world and the entire world, many of these places that we are taking care of our very rich. we take care of saudi arabia, they made a billion dollars a day when oil prices were up, now they make a little less. big deal. what? imports -- he is right. you never know, is he on our side? but we take care of saudi arabia. now, nobody is going to mess with saudi arabia because we are watching them. they have a fund so big, nobody has ever seen a fund like that. oil pouring out of the ground, very high quality oil. so they make nothing but money. if it was not for us, they would not be there very long. they are good people, everything is fine. but we are losing a fortune. if we had a person like me, like other people in this room, maybe some. you have some people in the room that would do a good job. and other people who would not do good, like people we have right now. nobody could do worse. so, we're protecting saudi arabia. and they are paying -- and they are not paying us a fair price. why are we paying rent for our military bases? why do we have any rent? i am not even talking about right, i am talking about really big numbers. japan, great country. they may cars, sell them. we have billions of dollars with japan, they sell us cars and we sell practically nothing, that is a trade imbalance. one of the great imbalances of all time. los angeles, i see these massive ships come in. this is like nascar. by the way, many drivers of nascar endorse trump, you know that right? the great brian france. they do a great job. thank you. but, they endorse -- brian said, i want to endorse you. he did it in north carolina. good place to endorse. it would not be bad up here, either. but we have it. not only sarah palin, we have jerry falwell junior, joe from arizona, sheriff joe. how about sheriff joe? ok? and we have so many others, congressman now, senator sessions, one of the most respected people in the senate, who ted cruz thought that he had. he kept talking about sessions and we would say, senator sessions, then he announced that he was endorsing donald trump. all of a sudden, ted cruz did not talk about him. a lot of things will happen. one thing we will do is the military bid we are the policeman of the world -- military. we are the policeman of the world. but these are really wealthy countries. not necessarily powerful, because we protect them. and it is ok. and you know what, when they start paying us and we do trade deals, this country is already turned around. in all fairness, number one, they will find out that he is a liar. you know, the evangelicals, they are with me. i think that you guys are only 28%. go to church. those are the ones. do you go to church on sunday? anytime you can go. do you go? so 68% evangelicals, and we won everything. we won so much. to show you, ted, did you see it? i am the only one who can beat donald trump. i have beaten him five times. and he is screaming, he wishes that he had the bible in his hands, but he picks up the bible and put it down and he lies. and it says, ibm -- i beat him six times. and i said, yeah, but i have beaten you 22 times. remember the face? you. do yourselves a favor. vote for me, i will go home and relax. so many people ask the question. this morning, i was interviewed by a very good radio guy. but some are bad, you know this guy named sykes? listen to the whole interview, everybody who listened to that show would vote for me. do not hang up, take on the enemy. you absolutely take them on. today, he was a smart guy. and it was national. he interviews me and says, we are on the phone, it is early saturday morning and i said, thank you very much. he said, mr. trump, one final question. what? you are worth a fortune, you have a beautiful family, you can do anything you want, why are you doing this? and, that question has been asked of me more than any other question, other than student debt. when i am around students, they graduate, they cannot get a job and it is a serious problem. but that question is asked so much, and i said, i have been so lucky in this country and i have done so well and made so much money, and i have enjoyed my life and i have hopefully some really good years left and i want to give back. i just want to give something back. mr. trump: thank you. you know, our theme, make america great again -- we are going to make it so great. we always have a problem, the problem with translation because the press is so dishonest. you have no idea. it is amazing how smart the people are. look, the people get it. they are really dishonest. they will put 1/10 of a sentence in. and worse, the cameras. you know, i used to say, "i love television." but the press is very dishonest. now we have a new trade deal called the ttp, trans pacific -- trade transpacific partnership. it is terrible. it is worse than nafta. i guarantee that most people have never read it. all of these countries think it is stunning and they analyze it and we designed it. first of all, we shouldn't have signed. we should sign with one, two, three, four, not 12, but we should have not done it. it is too complicated, it is a dad deal, ted cruz is totally in favor for it. john kasich, who voted for nafta, is in favor for it. people who said, "you are going to vote for that deal, see you are going to vote for this" tell him he has no choice, so he is going to vote for it. there are people in congress who don't want it. those are people who are being honest. the biggest point of the deal is devaluing monetary policy. china takes the most advantage of the devaluing of currency. they kill us. this year, we are going to have a $500 billion trade deficit with china. many people say that you're going to be so rich, so fast, but i'm a businessman, i know business, and under me, you are going to be so rich, so fast. we are going from a debtor nation. you have ted cruz who refused to approve any language on devaluation. any language on monetary manipulation. that is where they beat us, folks. they devalued their currency so much, and that we see our dollar holding and going up. they want our dollar to go up. it sounds good. in the meantime, komatsu is killing caterpillar. look at what is going on with mexico. mexico is taking our businesses, not only for to valuation, but for other problems. politicians don't know what the hell they are doing. so look. we are going to change things, and that is big money, those begins. i have carl icahn and other big businessman. we used political hacks, third-rate political slobs, to negotiate with the smartest people in china, the smartest people in japan, and we have all the cards. people don't realize it. without this big pot of money that is being drained out of your pocket -- and by the way, i have to do this, because i just thought i would have to, but i want to redo some statistics. so where am i talking about? 20% of the manufacturing jobs have left since 2000. you know or that is? wisconsin -- know where that is? wisconsin. wisconsin chronically legs the rest of the united states in job creation. here's what happened with scott walker, and i could only say this because i couldn't ask for his endorsement. what i did to that poor guy, man. want to make this country rich in good again. ok, so it chronically lags the rest of the country. i am running for president and it is like i'm standing on a motorcycle or something. i've got to tell you, every time i go someplace, bikers everywhere, any bikers and here? -- bikers in here? the bikers love me. and i have always loved the limousine, but you are great people. we had hundreds close to 1000 bikes, and i wondered what was going on. they are out there waiting for me to give a speech, it was a big group, it was incredible, but there had to be 1000 bikes, mostly harleys, in all fairness, i love harleys. and i by warsaw windows. -- i buy warsaw windows. does anybody know about warsaw windows? i build on pennsylvania avenue and there are great windows in there and i am building another hotel and it is way ahead of schedule and under budget. there is over 3000% of cost overrun. 3000%. but warsaw windows, i built a building on wall street with warsaw windows. say hello to warsaw windows for me, would you? say hello. honestly, it is one of the best windows made in the world. i said, warsaw, that must be where they make the windows, but we did a full building, on wall street, using 3500 warsaw windows. that is a lot of windows, right? and there are no leaks. we have no leaks. i should say they leaks like hell and get a refund, right? i do that, too, sometimes. anyway, so we have to make our country so strong and what we do it is with the big stuff and when you look at your area, wisconsin has to keep wages depressed in order to hold onto jobs. that is because of foreign competition. that is good, that is fine for foreign competition, but not for you. people haven't had an effective wage increase in 20 years. you have another candidate that had, like, 300 people, but we have thousands of people outside listening to a speaker. because people are angry and they are disgusted at what is going on. so we have thousands right now, we have people all over this country that are working hard, and a lot of people are getting part-time jobs. they never had a part-time job in their life, what because of obamacare, it makes sense for the company to make everything part-time. for reporting requirements. so it's terrible. so the new jobs is coming largely from health care, which are very well-paying jobs, it claims, which is about $125 per week. that is not good. wages in manufacturing make it like a low-wage nation in wisconsin, ok? and i've heard this, household income has had a major decline. this is wisconsin. by the way, this is largely country, just a you understand. large, large decline in household income, and that has taken place since the year 2000. so since the year 2000, you have had a decline. wisconsin is just in the middle of the pack. so you have a governor who endorsed him, ted cruz, and people of the governor, so do i, so he is fighting and fighting and fighting. somebody said if he gives you a call up, i would say, what the hell difference does it make? now let's say i didn't run again, ok? and let's say i wanted something in wisconsin and i call him up, "governor, how are you doing, governor? listen, just out of curiosity, i want to build something in wisconsin." do you think he would be happy about it? i think so, right? i don't know if it's good, i don't know if it's bad, but believe me, it's wrong because it is wrong for the people. people haven't had an increase in wages countrywide, nationwide, the blue collars. the wall street guys, i know the wall street guys so well. they have carried interest provisions, the have provisions that nobody in this room even understands, except one person, i understand it. i understand it and we're going to end it folks, we are going to end it. i am doing well. i don't want to do that well. i really don't want to do that well. it doesn't matter. some but he said, "how would you do if you didn't run your business?" are you kidding me? this is an opportunity that is so on inspiring to be president of the united states, to make our country so strong again. because we have to make it strong. we have to make it rich. a woman said, "mr. trump, i love you, i am going to vote for you, but please don't say, we are going to make this country rich again, it doesn't sound good." and i said, "you are right, because if we are going to make this country rich again, you're going to have social security cuts under john kasich or ted cruz, but i'm going to give a huge tax increase -- tax cut increase." i spent $35 million or $45 million and the other guys have spent $150 million. i mean, jeb bush spent 145 ilion doll -- 140 $5 million. will anybody ever forgive me for that term? that term is a killer. i am down to the two leftovers. i had 17 people and now we are down to two. isn't it nice when you think of it? isn't it nice? because if i can win wisconsin, you people are going to have low taxes, you're going to have jobs, we are going to bring jobs that, you're going to have your pick of jobs, you are not just going to pick a job because you have no choice, we are going to bringg jobs back into this country. we are going to move forward. you saw carrier air conditioners just a few months ago move into mexico. that's not good to happen. you are having pfizer move to ireland. i am telling you, these companies are high and regulations are too tight. who is troubled by regulations in this country? right? it is terrible. i have friends who are farmers that can't even form their lands because there are too many regulations. if i say had to shovel it out of the ground. we are going to end all that. we are going to end all that. it is so important. here's the thing. we have got to go out and we have got to vote. let me give you one other item because it is so important. i heard ted cruz today say -- now, i have been a businessman and i made a lot of money, made a lot of money against china, made tremendous deals against china. they can be beaten folks. they can be beaten. in trade. you know, the richest people in china, friends of mine, they say, "donald, we can't believe a we get away with." this is before i was running for president. now they say, "i didn't say that." but they said it. watching television, i say, wow, that is terrible. we were talking about nuclear, and i said, japan should have nuclear. that is what i said, supposedly. the question that was asked to be recently on television by a very good announcer, a very good guy, he said, "what about nato?" right? in all fairness, i have been entre nous are -- entrepreneur, a very good one, but i know something about nato. here is the problem with nato. it is obsolete. i learned quickly. i knew it was true. it is 68 years old. it was formed to look over the soviet union which doesn't even exist anymore. and i said it is obsolete and we pay too much money. now when i made this statement, thought i read it somewhere, but when i made the statement, it was really the statement that a lot of people said, how would you know a thing like that? so it turns out that things are worse than everybody thought. we're playing -- we are paying so much money here the united states, which is all of us, we are talking about serious, serious money. ok? we are not only taking care of germany, we are taking care of japan, this, that, and the other, but nato is not paying the bills, and why should they? because nobody asks them to pay. i am going to say, "pay up." and they are going to pay up. and i will do it nicely. i will ask nicely and do it very presidential. i will ask it and at the same time get the money. ok? you can't get to presidential. money. one of these countries, and i will not name any names, but they will say, i don't want to give money. i am like a really smart person. i can be a presidential president. i can be boring, that is ok. but look, we are going to get these countries to pay, and not only to pay, not only to pay, but to pay all of this money for years. we have been carrying these countries. many of them are rich countries. some of them have the money to pay. and then you safe to yourself, "what are we getting at here? -- say to yourself, "what are we getting at here?" well, take a look at ukraine. these three or four countries that surround ukraine, do you ever hear of them complaining? we don't want again to world war iii. and yet, the people that are the neighbors, they don't really care. or they don't care much. but here is the thing. when i talk about armament or when i talk about protection or when i talk about the military, all of these countries, which is much of the world, that we are taking care of, they have to pay, and i do want to be, like, a green person, but we are losing a fortune everywhere. we take care of south korea. we have 28,000 soldiers on the line between the north and the south, the mania. we have 20,000 soldiers on the line. we have got to stop it. japan from north korea. everybody talks about japan, japan, japan, what we get a tiny fraction of what we get, but we are protecting japan. so i said something to the effect that i would, and with great respect, i have a lot of japanese friends, they are great people, with great respect, but in four years, you are going to say that this guy turned up to be a great president, or maybe eight years. you're going to start saying it in two years. two years. you will see a big difference. right now we are at a great divide. right now we have a great divider as president. ok? he is a great divider. so i would say to japan, "you've got a help us out, we want to help you." and i would rather have them not armed, but i am not going to continue to lose this tremendous amount of money, and frankly, the case could be made to let them protect themselves against north korea. they would probably wipe them out pretty quick. and you know what? that would be a terrible thing. it looks, folks. if they fight, that would be terrible. but if they do, they do. we can't be the police of the world and get all of this debt going and we are sitting on a bubble that is going to explode and then we are going to end up you know where. we can't do it. so what did happen is after i made my statements about nato, the next thing you saw last week was that "donald trump wants to disband the nato." look, she is smiling, is it true? i am not some kind of a dopey guy. i am smart, i am really, really smart. i know what i'm doing. i know what i'm... text doing. point with some of these countries where we will walk and we won't be gone for long and then they will call us and say, "come back." now i would much rather protect japan, but you know what, it is possible to let them take care of themselves here. but probably more likely, they will pay also a lot more money and we won't be losing all of the vast millions and billions and billions of dollars that we are losing right now. just take a look at nato. i was so right. and now these people who studied nato for 30 years, now they are saying, that was a brilliant suggestion. one guy was saying, "here is a guy studying nato and he never thought of it, he said it is obsolete. i have a natural instant for this. by the way, united nations. same thing, smaller number. united nations. believe me. gang. the united nations, we pay for a vast -- i mean, the amount of money we spend on the united nations. i will tell you a story. a few years ago, four or five years ago, i was going before the united nations, and we were doing a study of the united nations's buildings, we were doing a renovation, so the in bassett or to sweeten up a time, i believe it was sweden, called me and mentioned the building for 92 stories for 306 $2 billion right across from the united nations. he called me and he was very nice and he said "district romp, i heard you spent $360 billion on a building across the street, and -- "mr. trump, i heard you spent $360 billion on a building across the street." he said, "could i ask you a question -- why?" and i said, "number one, they are crooked, and number two, it equals knowledge." i met with kofi anon and i said i would do the whole job for less. he said it would not be the same job and i said, you are right, it will be much better. you would use linoleum, ok? i said it will be much better, 100% that are. bottom line, i never heard from them again. then the united states senate called me and they said, how can you do it for $500 million, with why could you do it with that but you quote them $1.5 billion? i said it will cost them $3 billion or maybe more than that, and that was years ago. it will cost them much more even than what i said. it was one of the greatest messes you have ever seen and i asked the hitman of construction, i said, "let me ask you, are you going to use new york steam?" it is a very complex system of steam under new york. he said, "what's that?" he had no idea what i was talking about. i said, "how can you be in charge of a massive construction problem when you don't know what a five pipe or a four pipe, or a two pipe system is?" so here is the story, we are going to rebuild our country. we need roads, we need bridges, you know want? our bridges are falling down. we are going to save so much. you're going to go out and vote and you will be so proud of what took place today and you are going to be be even more proud -- going to be even more proud of what happens on tuesday. but you know that. you are going to be very proud. for my opponent, what is important to get out and vote -- vote for me or vote for my opponent, what is important is you get out and vote." but i say you should vote for me. i understand nature. you know, i appreciate life. we are all angry but we are good people but we are not really angry people but we love our country and it is being run by idiots and you have no idea what they are doing. and just to finish on the nuclear thing, i was talking about negotiating with japan and negotiate with germany and i have such negotiators in the world, carl icahn, other negotiators, a lot of people want to come in and help us, some of the greatest business minds, and they all want to help us, so i say to myself, "look at this, look at these people, and look at this negotiation. what is going to happen? what is going to happen?" if our country, if we don't do this deal, if we don't get the proper people in office soon, we are not good to have a country left, i am telling you, we are not going to have a country left. it's just not going to happen. and i am a person with common sense, and i used to say -- ok, remember the beginning of the campaign? bush and rubio. they are both nice guys, ok? but let me just tell you, number one, marco rubio, he never ran because bush was his mentor. marco was never going to run and then he did run and then they just hated each other and then people said, no they don't, they are good friends. jeb bush stood up and said, "marco is my dear, dear friend" and marco rubio stood up and said "jeb is my dear, dear friend" and i said, "they hate each other." my wife actually said, "why does he keep calling you a gifted, gifted politician?" he kept saying "donald trump is a gifted, gifted politician." and i said i do want to touch that, not on live television, i don't want to touch that. but look, i understood what is going on and i will do such a great job. i will cut are expenses, we will become rich, we will become strong, we will become great again, we will become so great. we don't win anymore. we don't win a war, we can't beat isis, we don't win with our great veterans, we can't take care of them, we don't know how, it is a corrupt system, the whole v.a. is corrupt. we are going to take care of our veterans. we are going to have jobs pouring back in our country, folks, there is nobody going to say, "donald, please don't do that, please don't do that," if they do, i will say, "they don't represent me." we are going to have a strong border on the southern side. the border is going to be so strong. you know, we will build the wall. we are to make mexico pay for it. they will build it. called up and they said, we would like to endorse mr. tromp. they had never endorsed a presidential candidate before. -- they said, "we would like to endorse mr. trump." they said "we have never endorsed a presidential... text candidate before." strongest on the border, and who is going to pay for the wall? mr. trump: "that i will never do drugs and, well, do al little bit of alcohol -- mr. trump: i love kids. you will never get hooked. you will never get hooked. that may be the most important thing i have done today. so look, folks, we are going to have a strong border. we are going to start winning again. i hope on tuesday you go out and vote for me. i will not let you down, i promise, you will not see anything like this. i promise. so on tuesday, go out and vote, it will be the greatest vote you have ever made, and we are going to start winning again, we will make america great again, i love you, thank you. thank you. thank you. thank you for your time.... textmr. trump: whoa! whoa! oh, thank you, folks. thank you you very much, folks. oh, what a crowd this is! thank you all, very much. sheriff joe, i want to thank you. you have some sheriff. there are no games with this sheriff, that's for sure. and jan, thank you so much, and jeff, boy oh boy, we have so much support, and on tuesday, we've got to make that movement go forward. the establishment, they don't know what they're doing. they have no clue. they don't how to win. they pick the people that absolutely will never win with the people they talk about. go out on tuesday and vote, i will never let you down. talked about it and these politicians are all talk, no action, they are never going to do anything, and they are only going to pick this up because when i went and i announced that i was running for president, i said, you know, his country is a big, big problem with illegal immigration, and all of a sudden, we started talking about it, and then we had bad things happening, and there was crime and you had so many killings and so much crime. drugs were pouring through the border, people are now seeing it, and you know what? we are going to build a wall and we are going to stop it. it's going to end. media, that i can tell you. i only wish these cameramen would spin around and show the kind of people that we have. the numbers of people that we have here. i just wish that for once, they would do it, because you know what? we have a silent majority that is no longer so silent. it is now the loud, noisy minority, and we are going to be heard. we are going to be heard. so today, one of the very big stories was about the border agents, they say they support trump, that trump is the only one running that has their backs, ok? and they can do the job, but they don't get support from the politicians. now why? i am still funding my campaign, i am putting up my own money, and these guys, i look at them all up and down, we started with 17 and now we are down to three. don't we love that? don't we love it? don't we love that? we lost the future of the republican party last tuesday in florida, you know, he was the future, he was the future of the republican party, except i won florida in a landslide because people are tired of what politicians are doing to the country, remember that. they are tired of it. they are sick and tired of it. remember obama? change! this is going to be real change and we are going to have a border and unless you have a border, you don't have a country, folks, you don't have a country. remember that. now it, in addition, and we will go through a list of things very quickly, because frankly, it doesn't take a long time, we are going to end, and core, education will be local. everybody wants it. we don't want our children educated by bureaucrats from washington, d.c., so we and common core education local. we're going to terminate obamacare. we are going to repeal it and replace it with great health care for far less money. that's going to happen. that is going to happen. we're going to protect our second amendment. our second amendment. remember, it is a perceived -- it is under siege like never before and we are going to protect it. you know, in paris, they have the toughest gun laws in the world, the world, no tougher gun laws than anywhere in the world, tough. and guess what? 130 people dead, and no bullets going in the opposite direction. the same thing happened in california. 14 people. radicalize people. she probably radicalized him. they went in and killed people that they worked with, that they supposedly liked. it is not going to happen anymore, folks. it is not going to happen. we are going to be smart, we are going to be vigilant, we are going to be smart people, we are going to be proud of our country again. our military is depleted. our military is exhausted. we don't replenish. we take, we don't replenish. we send the best equipment in the world over to wherever we are sending it. we don't even know. i don't even think we know where we are sending it. and a bullitt gets fired in the air and the enemy takes over this great equipment and then they have better equipment than we do and they are using our equipment. those days are done. those days are done. where we go, we have these massive crowds. and by the way, are we winning or what? look at the numbers! you know it is really, it is really amazing, you know to me, it is really amazing. we have won 20 states, and we have one in massive landslides - - have won in massive landslides. ia won in new hampshire, i wasn't supposed to win in new hampshire, and ted cruz, he wasn't born in this country, folks, and he shouldn't even be in this country, and he shouldn't be in this group that we are talking about. but we win in a massive landslide, and we go to south carolina were we have the evangelicals. 68%. lyin' ted, we call him lyin' ted. so he comes up with a bible and he puts it down and you know what? he starts line. and you know what? the evangelicals don't like liars. that was going to be an easy victory and trump wins it in a landslide. in a landslide. and then one after another, we go and we win in nevada, a landslide, we win in the sec, we did so great, and we had a great day on tuesday. we had 5, 5. and that i heard ted cruz the other day, saying, i am the only one who can stop trump, i am the only one. do you ever hear this guy? and he said, i beat him five times, and i thought, wait a minute, i beat him 20 times. lyin' ted, lyin' ted. and you know what, i will tell you, john kasich is a nice guy, but he is done. as far as arizona is concerned, john kasich is very, very weak as you know. and another thing that i don't like, he approved nafta. when you approve nafta, a lot of your businesses had left. he is also in favor of tpp, and so, by the way, is ted cruz. tpp is a disaster. tpp is the transpacific partnership, it is a disaster, it is going to take away the auto industry, it is a disaster, you don't want it. you don't do trade with massive amounts of countries, folks, you do it one at a time, one at a time, one at a time. if they don't cooperate, then you put them in the shed, and then maybe we let them come back. you know, i built a great company, a massive company, a fantastic company, and i filed, i did my filings, and oh, they were so unhappy with it. it is a good company, it is a phenomenal comp veryany, little debt, a lot of cash flow. -- it is a phenomenal company, very little debt, a lot of cash flow. i say this not to brag, but to show you that we need this. we have $19 trillion in debt, $19 trillion. who even knows what one trillion is? we have $19 trillion in debt, going to $21 trillion, and they just approved in the congress a budget, it is a disaster, they call it the omnibus, the omnibus, it is a disaster, obamacare is a disaster, there are people coming into the united states, we have no idea who they are, and it funds the illegal immigrants coming in, they come right through arizona. all of these things are funded with a budget that they approved, and i think it took them, like, 12 minutes to approve the budget. not going to happen anymore, folks, not going to happen. so here is story, bottom line, the bottom line. it is, first of all, it is great to be with you. this is incredible. we expected, and this was just set up result, and we expected -- and by the way, i don't know if you know, last night we had an unbelievable evening in salt lake city, utah, and i hope they go with us, i hope they go with us. i said we have to stop there, i stopped, and we had an amazing evening there. but let me just tell you that the way that i finished, it is simple, our country is not winning anymore. our trade is a disaster. china, what china has done to her country, china has been rebuilt because of the money and the jobs we have lost and the money we have given them. we have rebuild china and they know it. i have many friends from china. i don't have any objection to china, i think it's wonderful, i am angry at our people, not their people, if you can get away with it. so look, we've rebuild china. it is not free trade, it is not anything, this is horrible, stupid trade. when you have $500 billion a year, folks, we've got to get smart. i have carl icon, i have the greatest negotiators in the world, -- carl ichahn, i have the greatest negotiators in the world. we had pfizer, a great company, pfizer, they just announced they are leaving. they are a huge drug company. they announced they are going to ireland. companies are going to mexico. nabisco, ford, where are they going? mexico. mexico, mark my words, exit code is a small version of china. we better get smart and we better get smart quickly -- mexico, mark my words, mexico is a small version of china. we better get smart and we better get smart quickly. my daughter, ivanka, she told me to act presidential, act presidential. she said, in the next debate, act presidential. i didn't attack marco, i didn't attack little marko, and i didn't attack ted, lyin' ted, lyin' ted. but ted cruz, he is not going to be the right guy, he is not going anywhere, so it is not going to happen. i say we make is before the convention, by the way. you have these stiffs like mitt romney. the guy is a total stiff. did he let us down? this guy is a loser. did he let us down? i mean, here is a guy, he goes up, he is so devastated, he forgot the campaign in the final month, he gave it to obama. the leave me, i am going to win, i am going to be hillary, but let me tell you, beating obama four years ago was easier than beating hillary clinton now, believe me. and mitt romney choked. pure and simple. he choked, he choked like a dog, and that's not going to happen. that's not good to happen with me. so here's the story. here's the story. come on back, folks. come on back. you left. we had incompetent leadership. you left. some folks said, we are not coming back, we had incompetent leadership, but now we can bring you back. you went to mexico, will bring you back. but i'm a conservative, and i am smart, and look, i spent $48 million in new hampshire, -- jeb spent $48 million in new hampshire, and i spent some money, too, my own money, but i won. he is a joke. people who have no clue about money or deals that have not read "the art of the deal" in all fairness, it is not of interest to them. look at john kerry. look at the deal he made with iran. one of the worst deals ever negotiated. one of the worst deals ever negotiated. look at it, it is a disgrace, it is an embarrassment. by the way, on that deal, we should have never, ever, even started, until we got those prisoners back, we should have gotten them back years ago, and once we got them back, we should have told them, by the way, the $150 billion, no, we are a debtor's nation, folks. after about two days of turmoil, we would have saved, believe me, 150 billion dollars. that deal is such an embarrassment. well, our trade deals are just like that. our trained deals are just like that. bowe bergdahl, he is just like that. bergdahl, he is a traitor. we get bergdahl, and we get to give them five of the great killers that they have coveted. those guys are now back on the battlefield, trying to kill us all, and we've got a traitor. big deal. and by the way, a traitor that has supposedly, supposedly, five or six young beautiful soldiers were killed trying to get him back. that is our deal. that is the way we negotiate. that is not going to happen anymore. not going to happen anymore. so what we are going to do is we are going to tell our wonderful businesses that deserted us, they left us, and i'm not even blaming them, they had no reason not to, because nobody talks -- you think somebody went to carry her and said, you listen coming you let all of these people go, don't go to mexico? they don't do that. so they move into mexico, and i would say, and i would do it myself, i know it is not presidential, it is not presidential, it is not presidential of the president of the united states to call up the president of carrier, "hello, this is the president." but this is so much fun for me. please, don't take that away. don't take that away from me. i love deals. so whether it is one of me or one of my representative's, i know the good ones, i know the bad ones, that whether it is one of these killers or one of some real for me, please, let me do it. let he do it, please. so i call up, and they would say, the president of the united states is calling the president of carrier, get them on the phone, i would say, "good luck in mexico, enjoy your stay, but here is the story, you let go of 14,000 people that helped to build your company, and i really love, by the way, i really love the new pictures of your facility. every single air conditioning unit that you make, every single one, as it crosses the border, and we are going to have a real border, because we are going to have a wall, we are going to have a real border, we are going to have a date, beautiful wall that nobody is crossing, just in case you had any questions, don't worry about the tunnels and stuff, nobody is going over it and nobody is going over it and we are going to have a big, beautiful door, but people are going to be coming into our country legally, legally, legally, so i tell the head of carrier, everything will unit that you make in mexico and that you sell in the united states, we are going to put a 35% tax on that unit, and i hope it works out well for you." and here is what is going to happen, they are going to have lobbyists call me, but i didn't take any money, they are going to have special interest, and, and i didn't take any money, they are going to have donors, donors, donors, but i didn't take any money, i don't give a damn for them, folks. i care about you. and here is what is going to happen. within 24 hours of that phone call, ahead of carrier and ford and so many other companies, i mean, you just take a look, i could give you a list and you could read them all day, the head of nabisco, leaving chicago with their plant, they are headed to mexico, no more oreos for us, no more oreos to eat. so here is what is going to happen, folks, i will get a call within 24 hours, a president of carrier, "mr. president, we have decided to stay in the united states." and then i would say, "thank you very much. and i don't want it in phoenix, arizona, or anywhere in particular, we just want it in the united states." this is going to happen a lot. we don't win anymore. we don't win at anything. we don't win at anything. we don't win at anything. we are going to beat isis. how about general george patton? he is too tough. he is too tough. he couldn't be a general anymore because he is too tough. he is not politically correct. by the way, chipping away, just like i said, chipping away at the second amendment, they are chipping away at christianity, they are chipping away at our religion, they are not going to have it anymore. when it comes to christmas time, they are going to put up a fight, but we are going to put up a sign as is, -- sign that says, "merry, merry, merry christmas!" we are totally impotent as a country. we are going to knock the hell out of crisis and we are going to rebuild our country, we are going to rebuild -- out of isis, and we are going to rebuild our country. we're going to rebuild our country. our country is going to be so strong. somebody at that company that stole the equipment had political connections to these characters that i run against. we are going to have a great military and we are going to finally, finally take care of our great veterans, we're going to take care of them. so we are going to win with the military, we are going to win. oh, thank you, look at you. look at you. usa is right. usa.... text mr. trump: so, folks, we are going to start winning again. we are going to win with our military, we are going to win for our vets, we're going to win for our vets, right? we are going to win for our vets, we're going to win with our military, we are going to win with a obamacare, we are going to get rid of it and going to make something much better, we're going to win with every aspect of our lives. we're going to win the league with our second amendment. we are going to keep winning at every level. we are going to win so much that you are going to common you are going to say, "is the president, we are winning so much, i can't stand it anymore," and i'm good say, "i don't care." this is for the people of phoenix, and the people of arizona, we're going to win a for our border, and we are going to build a wall, and ladies and gentlemen, i love you. you have to go out. you have to vote on tuesday. you will never be disappointed with me. i will never disappoint you. we are going to bring our country back. we are to take our country back. we are going to have victories again. you're going to be so proud of your family, yourself, your country. we are going to win again all the time. thank you very much. i love you. i love you. thank you very much. thank you. thank you. thank you, everybody. ... text mr. trump: thank you, everybody. go out and vote! go vote!a gesture of compromise? mr. trump: let me say, the word compromise is not a bad word to me as a negotiator, having made deals all my life. i am coming out with a book in three weeks. does anyone know the title of the book? "crippled america." it's a very sad title. simon & schuster said, we would love to do a book. i started writing, and i worked with a group, they are great people. i realized how much negativity is going on. i said that. then they sent a great photographer and took these beautiful pictures of me smiling . smiling. i look nice. my wife said, you look really good. but i didn't use that picture. i used the worst picture. it is mean, angry, because i'm angry about what's happening in the country, and i put it right on the cover at the book. it's a horrible picture. but i like the word "compromise." we need compromise. there's nothing wrong with compromise, but it's always good to compromise and win, meaning, less compromise and win. as far as taxes, i put out a plan where i am reducing plan -- taxes substantially. we are bringing corporate down to 15%, bringing tremendous tax reductions to virtually everybody. we are getting rid of a lot of the deductions, like carried interest, which is meant for the hedge fund guys. we are getting rid of them. the hedge fund guys don't want to talk to me anymore. they wanted to give me millions. i am self funding. they wanted to give me millions of dollars. i don't want it, because if i take it i have to be like jeb bush and rubio and all these guys and i have to do what they tell me to do, because believe me, they are puppet. i am self funding my campaign. we have asked for a major task -- tax reduction and a major signification. the word compromise is absolutely fine. but if you have to compromise, ask for about three times more than you want, you understand? so that when you compromise, you get what you want. go ahead, go ahead. she doesn't have a mic. who has a mic? ok. look who we have. good.... text mr. trump: by the way, it is not $18 trillion, it is now $19 trillion. we have $19 trillion in deficits. we owe, this is what you are talking about, we owe $19 trillion as a country, and we will bring it down quickly. we will bring jobs back, bring business back. we will stop our deficits. we will stop our deficits. we will do it very quickly.... text mr. trump: number one, we have tremendous cutting to do. you have a department of education that is out of control. massive costs. some of the republican candidate like common core. i am against common core. i want local education. when i mean new hampshire -- when i am in new hampshire and iowa and south carolina, it is so important. we will save our department out environmental protection. they are not doing their job. it's impossible for our country to compete. and many other things. hundreds of billions of dollars is going to be saved just in terms of running government. in addition, i will bring millions of jobs back into this country. ok, questions.... text mr. trump: here's the thing. i went to ivy league schools. i know what is divisive and not divisive, in all fairness. i don't want to necessarily be politically correct all the way down the line. because i see people who can't even function. i see politicians who are afraid to say anything because it's not politically correct, and they know the answers and refuse to give them because they are afraid it's not going to be politically correct, and i'm going to have to be who i am. at the same time, i am running against a lot of people. it was 16 now 15. many are going to be dropping out soon, if they are smart. too many people. too many people. when it becomes a different kind of a situation, you will see i will be much less divisive, but always remember this -- i never start anything. they start. they get very nasty, whether it is lindsey graham, perry from texas. i get along great, and then because they are dying, doing so badly, they figure, i don't think anybody in this room wants to have somebody who's not going to fight. the problem is as we have people now who don't. they don't. and the country, the country is being hurt tremendously by it. another question.... text mr. trump: where are you? mr. trump: so important. the one thing i get more than any other question is student loans. they go out and get an education from great colleges. many great colleges. they become the best student in the class, everything is great, then they can't get a job. the best way to solve it is to create jobs, but they can't get jobs. the students are going out and borrowing money all over the place, borrowing student loan money, one of the only agencies in government that makes a lot of money, the one place where maybe we shouldn't be making so much money. it's a question i get more than any other question. we are going to be cutting that down, giving people incentive to go and get an education. at a much lower price. don't forget, these schools because they get so much money from the government through students, they are raising fees to a point that is ridiculous. they don't need to get that kind of money. they don't need to get that kind of money. because of the fact that the government is giving out so much money, you take a look at what is happening to the cost of education, and it has not gone up that much. we will get those numbers down, and also we will have jobs so that when you graduate you will end up with a nice job where you are very happy. thank you. great question. mr. trump: i will tell you about the tea party. these are people, in all fairness, these are people that love this country. they do love this country, and they want this country to be great. go ahead.... text mr. trump: they don't want planned parenthood funded. a lot of people understand that, including me. i understand that. so you do have that. so you do have that. a lot of people feel that way.... text and applause] mr. trump: i know i should not have picked her. let me give you that answer right now. i respect women incredibly. i have had women working for me in positions that they never worked, in terms of so many different jobs. i had a woman who was in charge of the building of trump tower many years ago, before anybody would have even thought of it. and she did a fantastic job. i have given women more opportunity than i would say virtually anybody in the construction industry. i have a daughter named ivanka and a wife, who constantly want me to talk about women's health issues, because they know how i feel about it. they know how i feel about women. i respect women. i love women. i cherish women. hillary clinton said, he should not cherish. i cherish women. my mother was one of the great people of the world, my mother. i respect women, and i'm going to take care of women. jeb bush did not want to fund women's health issues. you saw that. then he took it back later. i will take care of women, and i have great respect for women, and i do cherish women, and i will take care of women. i will take care of us, also, from the enemy, the enemy on different shores looking to come in and do numbers. believe me, i will take care of the people of this country far better than any of the folks you are looking at right now. that i can tell you. go ahead.... text mr. trump: you are going to make the same if you do as good a job. you are going to make the same if you do as good a job, and i happen to be pro-life, ok? i am pro-life. any other questions? yes, go ahead, you have the mic back there. go ahead. go ahead. shout it out. shoot. he's choking. come on.... text mr. trump: are you from south korea? million. mr. trump: which is peanuts. excuse me, it is peanuts compared to what it is costing. by the way, they are a very wealthy country. part of the problem when we talk about, like your question, about deficits and losing, we are defending germany, we are defending japan, we are defending south korea, we are defending so many countries. we get peanuts. we get nothing. we get a small payment. it is a tiny fraction, and i talk, i say all the time about south korea, i ordered 4000 television sets recently for a big project. they all come from south korea. my only bid from south korea, whether it is lg, samsung, these are wealthy countries. we have 28,000 soldiers on the border of south korea. so we defend germany, which is sending cars and everything, and economic behemoth. we are defending japan. so here's the deal we make. we defend japan and we have to defend them with our lives. if anybody attacks japan, we have an agreement, we have to go and attack and fight and die and to spend. but if anybody attacks us, japan doesn't have to do a thing. that's the way we run things. it's not going to happen with me, folks. it's not going to happen with me. if we are defending people who are far richer than us, they have to pay for it. we want to help them, but why are we defending germany? why are we defending south korea? why are we defending japan, and they don't do anything for us? we will have great relationships, but why do we pay the cost of defending the world? when you look at the military budget, it is far higher than anybody else's, but you know why it is higher? because we are defending all these countries. not helping us. so we are going to change things around and make america great again. believe me. thank you all very much. thank you. which is responsible for its caption content and accuracy. visit ncicap.org] ... textapplause] mr. trump: wow. this is so amazing. i just want to thank you all. you know, we have three rooms like this. i like this guy, he is a professional. but the press, they do not get it, folks. so i am listening to fox on the way over and i heard greta, she said, they have thousands and thousands of people there. and you know, i do not know if you know it, but we have two other rooms like this outside. you people have the best location. you have the best location. but we love the people in the other two rooms, right? there are supposed to be 3000-4000 people in this room. 2000 and 2000 and in the other two rooms. so we have anywhere between 6000 and it 8000. -- and 8000. they don't even know. and greta van susteren says, and the other one, he says, no, they only have 1500 people here. let me tell you. let me tell you. start counting them up, carl. because we have a lot of people here, carl. and i am not referring people to -- referring to carl. i am just saying the press is so damn dishonest. they are unbelievably dishonest. so we have two rooms like this and i have a guy saying, 2000. this is thousands of people. by the way, outside there are thousands of people who could not get into any of the three rooms. so that is the story. what can i tell you? i like to set it straight, right? i want to thank you all for coming. this has been an amazing experience. i know so many people in indiana. i think we are doing well. that does not mean you don't have to go vote. you have to go vote tomorrow. but i think we are doing well. we have taught ted cruz in so many lies. we call him lying ted. this guy lies. he is lying. he is lying ted. he is lying ted. he is almost worse in the press. almost. i don't know if you heard because the press will not tell you but a new poll came out a few hours ago, the rasmussen poll. and i am beating hillary clinton. and that is good. that is good. we are beating her.... text mr. trump: and i have not even started yet. you know, we started with 17 people and they are all senators and accomplished people. senators, governors, tremendous people like dr. ben carson who really did well. and, he endorsed me. he is a great guy. chris christie, great guy who endorsed me. a lot of people. a lot of people are endorsing. a lot of people. jerry falwell, junior, just came in. jerry falwell from liberty university endorsed me. so many ministers and pastors, and that is why we are winning the evangelical vote and we have been very consistently. we are winning everything. i don't know if you saw but in new york they did exit polls. we won with women. we won with men. but especially the women made me feel good. the women. poor, everything. we won and then we went to new york where we got almost every delegate. 95. then we went to five great states. connecticut, maryland, pennsylvania, delaware, rhode island. we won every single one of them in a landslide. we won every group. it has been amazing. and now the biggie is going to be indiana, because if we win in indiana it is over with, folks. it is over with. and then we focus on hillary clinton. remember, we started with 17 and they went off one by one. a senator, a governor, a senator, a governor. they did not know what the hell happened. they went out. now we're down to two with near down to two and they are -- two and they are hanging by their fingernails. they are up there like this. they are hanging. it has been unbelievable. i have been here a lot. i have many friends here. they are amazing. i've met so many amazing people and we have had such incredible crowds. that is why i had to call him. but we had such incredible crowds right up to the end. look at this room. as an example, right up to the corners of this big room. people. and all over. all over. hello, corner. so, it has been an incredible experience. we're going to make america great again. it is going to be america first. america first. but we are going to make america -- look at all those hats. whites, reds, everything. but we love. you know, the truth is, at the trump rallies it is the safest place you can be. because we look out for each other. and we look out for everybody. we had one in costa mesa recently. we had one in california recently. 31,000 people. unbelievable. you don't read about that. you read about, they had some problems outside. people were burning the american flag. i don't want them burning the american flag. not the people inside, the people outside. they are agitators. many are professionals. they are bad people. you don't see it at all. no, look at this place. you don't see it. we have gone through days, it is unbelievable. california was unbelievable. a new poll just came out in california where i am leading 55 to like 20. ok? the other one had me tied up. by the way, hillary clinton, in a state called indiana, which we love, that just came out, too. that is the wall street journal nbc poll. trump is leading hillary 48-41. and the only thing ted cruz could say with his shakespearean everything, oh. i cannot watch. i love these guys. they are online. did you see them a over the news? we want trump. lying ted. that's right. he lies like nobody else can lie. they were online and the had -- they had these guys debating and they know they get it. , they said, you are lying. you are lying. someone said online they were supporting trump. then all the sudden i heard i was supporting with him as my vice president. and you had ted cruz saying, who would you rather have, himself and carly or donald trump and mike tyson. where did that come from? i said, where did that come? first of all, i'm honored that he endorsed me but where did , that come from? and then he said, donald trump wants to raise your taxes 40 -- 40%. just so you understand, i have a tax policy and we have a tax land put in and i am given by -- giving my far the biggest tax reduction of anybody running. by far. especially for the middle class and especially for business. with the highest taxed nation in -- we are the highest taxed nation in the world. the fact is the one criticism of my tax plan is that i am giving so much. in other words, my tax plan is much higher. yet you listen to this lying guy who says i want to raise your taxes 40%. these politicians are really bad. i have only done this nine months. i think i am doing a good job. do you agree? have the business started off with a $1 million loan and then i built a net worth over $10 billion with the greatest assets. very low debt. tremendous cash flow. and i only say it for one reason because i don't care. i am just saying, this is what we need to bring our country back. we have to bring our country back. we need to bring our country back. the world is ripping us off. whether it be china or vietnam or japan. i could name any country. we do not win any more. we are going to start winning. big-league. big-league. so i'm giving you the biggest and i hear this guy and i think, oh i wish i were standing next to him so i can tell the truth. now, you have been watching me for a long time. repeal and replace obamacare, right? so lying ted cruz gets up and says, donald trump loves, you know with a big flares. -- a big flourish. you know honestly, i do not even think he is a good debater. according to every single online poll at every single online debate, i have beaten him. i mean, i do not debate him. my whole life is a debate. but this guy, so i talk about obamacare. we're going to repeal it and replace it with something great. i don't know if you've seen it, but premiums are going up so much, right? premiums are going up 25%, 45%, 55%. your deductibles are so high that you are never going to be able to use it unless you are like close to death. every speech i say we will repeal and replace obamacare. so i hear this guy today, lying ted cruz. he says, donald trump loves obamacare. he wants to take it to the next level. he loves it. i am saying, he is such a liar. you know, i was given a little bit of shelter when during one of the debates, marco rubio called him a liar. so now here is a senator calling a senator a liar. i have never seen a guy lie like that. he even said, donald trump will not build a wall. he said he is not going to build the wall. not build the wall? ok. we're going to build the wall. can you imagine? no, no, can you imagine? we are going to build the wall. we'll talk about the wall. and i tell you, we are going to build the wall, we are going to stop drugs from pouring in and poisoning our youth and other people. we are building the wall. and i've got this guy, ted cruz. lying ted. donald trump is not going to build the wall. i think he is crazy. honestly, i think he is crazy. lying ted does not have the temperament to be doing this. he is choking like a dog because he is losing so badly, we have to put him away tomorrow. folks, we have to get out and vote. we have to get out and vote. york state landslides. but i go to different communities and i say to my statisticians, not the most exciting job, but they love it. right? it's their job but i say give me the statistics on certain areas albany new york, poughkeepsie. , i go to new york and it's horrible. what's happening? the jobs are down 50% in manufacturing, it's horrible what's happening in new york state. i go to pennsylvania. you look at the steel industry and by the way look at the steel industry here, it's being killed. the steel industry here is being killed. the coal industry is being killed. your industry, your manufacturing, so i go up to sell then will stop what school -- what school do i love? i have so many friends that love me there are that would like to be there with me right now in south bend. for a certain reason. ready? so south bend of reason. listen to this. and don't be depressed, because we going to fix it. no politician can fix it because they are all bought and controlled by special interests. remember that. so a friend of mine who is very smart, a very smart guy, he said to me, you know donald i don't understand. these politicians are really stupid. i said they are not stupid, they are given so many money -- so much money by special interest and many don't know what they are doing. so these guys that negotiate with china and mexico and all these big countries where we just die with these horrible trade deals. some of them are not good. you know, they are political hacks. but i tell you what. they are not actually stupid. they are making deals because they are special-interest groups, lobbyist's, donors, tell them. when i see carrier air-conditioning leaving indiana to go to mexico, there are people who want that to happen. i have been talking about it since they first had that speech i've been talking about. i said i know i'd be in indiana. the coach was great to endorse me and we have had so many great endorsements. and bobby knight just called and bobby knight is going to be here tomorrow all day and i will tell you bobby knight was so cool because a year ago before it was going to run i announced nine or 10 months ago on june 16, a big day. not easy to do this. it takes guts to do this stuff, believe me folks. i sort of had a nice life. i had a nice company and a nice family and now i call back and say we'll be home in four days but i will tell you what, bobby knight called me and he heard i was thinking about running. i had never met bobby knight. i knew bobby knight, winner, smart and tough which is what we need in our country. and bobby called up and first i had to make sure it was him. they call back and they do all sorts of things but bobby called up and he said i hope you are going to run. i said you know what coach, thinking about it seriously. it's a big commitment. we have got to make america great again. i watch what's happening and he said donald you've got to run. i said coach i'll tell you what do me a favor, give me your number, let me see what i do and i will call you. what happens a couple of months later announced i'm running and i come down and we are talking about trade and talking up the border and all these things that -- these things would have never even been brought up if i didn't talk about them. when i talk about illegal immigration and was like for weeks i was getting absolutely killed by the press and the dishonest media, but the media that said we have 1500 people here tonight and we have 6000. so dishonest. carl, don't be ashamed of yourself. but you know what? you know what? i had to do it. we talked about illegal immigration and we brought up trade and then you had paris and i started talking about the muslim problem which is a problem whether you like it or you don't and nobody else is talking about it. we talked about radical islamic terrorism and we have a president that doesn't want to use the term because he doesn't know what the hell he is doing or maybe he does know what he's doing, one or the other. maybe he does know what he's doing but in so many ways he doesn't. bobby called and i put in this number and now all of a sudden indiana, because usually it is late, but now indiana is becoming very important. and i say it's so important. in terms of the race. usually by this time it's over and it doesn't matter but this time you folks belong where you belong. it is called importantville. i have so many friends here. we have a huge victory in new york. cruz got almost no votes in new york. he would be beaten so badly by hillary clinton. he can't win so these guys do terribly and then the following week i get rid of all five in a landslide. we are going to win the whole thing. we're going to beat her in a landslide. i said, possible? i have his phone number on my desk. i said what a great idea so i called them up and here is how smart he is. he goes i've been waiting for your call. can you believe that? then he said when can we meet? he's been so incredible and he said some things that were really true. he said, for the people of indiana, donald trump is going to be such a great president. and i am. i'm going to work so hard for you to be great. we are going to bring jobs back. we are not going to let carrier go to mexico. there've got to be consequences. when people want to lay off 1400 people go to mexico and sell , their product back to us with no tax or consequence is not going to happen and that's not only carrier. that is many others. because we are losing our manufacturers. we are losing our country between what is happening there, what's happening with china, trade deficit with china. $500 billion $58 billion with mexico, a trade deficit a tremendous trade deficit, astronomical trade deficit with japan. everybody. we have a trade deficit with everybody. you could call out a country. and now they want to make a new deal, transpacific partnership, which will be as bad as nafta. or worse. and nafta was terrible. and who approved nafta? kasich approved nafta. kasich approved nafta when he was a congressman. one of the deciding votes. so here's what happened. when bobby went into that arena, and it was a big arena, it was incredible. people are screaming, crying. they love bobby. hey look, he won 900 games. he won three world championships. college championships. he won the olympics. he won the pan am games. i don't even know if you realize this, i said how come it has not been broken yet? he has the last undefeated season. he almost had in a row, he had two won almost before. i mean, there is a guy that is a winner. he said, for the people of indiana it is an important week. if we win, it is over and then i can focus -- i don't care if he endorses me, i could care less. i don't have to worry about john kasich, who is one in 44. and that is because i did not go that i don't two days, i stayed -- that final two days, i stayed in florida because i wanted to win florida and they gave me what is called a dirty poll. somebody came out with a dirty poll in florida. if i would've spent two more days in ohio, we would have won. but i did not stop it is ok. but he is one for 44, 45, 46. something. now, in the popular vote i am millions ahead of ted cruz. but it is a rigged system. this delegate stuff it is , dishonest. it is meant for the bosses to be able to keep the special interests happy and the people who give them money said that -- so that mexico and other places where you have big interests, i tell you what, the system is so sick. in louisiana, i win louisiana. i was not supposed to. i went there and campaigned for three days, massive speeches. we had an airplane hangar bigger than this room that was packed and we win louisiana. and then two or three weeks later, they are going over the numbers. and i got like hardly any delegates. it's only been nine months. i am figuring it out fast. you mean i can win and the guy who comes in third place or four place ends up with more delegates than me. no, think of it. it's a dirty system. i will tell you what i'm proud of. for 40 or 50 years how long has this been going on on with this crazy delegate system? nobody has ever complained. nobody ever talks about it. i always heard, delegate, delegate. then you had in colorado where they did a poll and they said we don't want to go and vote so let's take the votes away from the people and let the bosses are is going to pick it. and the bosses are always going to pick a senator who is under control who takes all these campaign contributions and borrows money from goldman sachs. cruz borrowed money from goldman sachs and citibank. $1 million at a rate you would be proud to have. nobody in this room would be able to get the loan rate and he forgot to disclose it on his financial disclosure form. he forgot, lyin' ted. he said, i forgot. he was until 18 months ago he was a citizen of canada. he forgot to tell you that. oh i didn't know that. oh. this guy, i mean give me a break. bobby said, and it was so incredible. bobby knight said to the people at one of the speeches because he went around with me, he said it will be so great because donald trump is going to be a great president and i appreciate him saying that. and the people of indiana if they vote for him they are going to put him over the top and we can focus on hillary clinton. so good. so i appreciate lou holtz just called in and just endorsed me. it's all over the internet. lou holtz is a really good guy so we have everybody. i mean, we have so many great endorsements. you know who's very important to me? 16,500 border patrol people endorsed me last week. they have never done it before. and of course, sheriff joe, you talk about borders, sheriff joe from arizona, but the 60,500 -- 16,500 people had never endorsed a presidential candidate before and they endorsed me so that was a great honor. because we need borders. we need to have our country back. we can't have people walking across our borders and we have to either have a country or we don't have a country and you can't have a country if you don't have borders and on top of that we have drugs pouring across. you know, when i won new hampshire that was the first state that i won. and when you win something, you get a special feeling. i won new hampshire in a landslide. i wasn't supposed to. jeb bush was supposed to. he raised $168 million in a super pac. $168 million. he was favored to win new hampshire and i won in a landslide. i have a much higher level of energy. what can i say? and i wouldn't say that because once the race is over, i love all these people. when you defeat somebody, you are supposed to love them. never lose. and i wouldn't say, the other day he was on television saying bad stuff. although he did say it was a phenomenon. and he did say, he's a gifted politician. i don't understand that. when he said i was a gifted politician, i think he said that and it was not meant as a compliment. being a politician itself is not so great but i beat jeb bush and think of this, i spent the least amount of money. he spent the most. i came in first. he came in last or close. other people have spent far more money than me and so far i spent of the major candidates the least amount of money by far and i'm number one in a landslide. right? we are last. so we are last in education. if you look at cost per pupil, we are first. so we -- and by the way there is no second because we spend so much more per pupil that they don't even talk about number two. it is ridiculous. so, wouldn't you like, i mean think of this. and by the way, it's norway, denmark sweden, china, japan. the five. we are 30th but we are first in terms of spending per pupil. now, and that is bad. that is bad. that is real bad. now with me i spent the least and had the best results. isn't that what you want for and here's the other thing, i'm self-funding so i'm not controlled by all these people that controlled cruz, they control hillary, crooked, crooked, crooked hillary. you know the other day they were talking about crooked hillary and myself. right? and they said one of her people and one of obama's people and they said who do you think hillary wants to run against? and the guy said, let me tell you. the one she doesn't want to run against, donald trump. she does not know where it is coming. he said, a guy like cruz is cookie-cutter. it will make barry goldwater looks like he has a successful campaign. with trump they don't know what's going to happen. they don't know where he is going to come from and i'm going to win states like new york, good chance. a state which no republican would ever even campaign because he had no chance. you saw it two weeks ago i won by a landslide. against two people and the dishonest media when they say like about, four or five weeks ago, or 10 weeks ago, we would have 12 people and i would want to stay. i won south carolina, i won nevada, i won the south. alabama, kentucky, i won them all. i won missouri. i won them all and then i won florida in a landslide and they are saying, you did not have 50%. i have 12 people against me. you cannot win 50%. i mean, if i am abraham lincoln i can get it the percent. 17 people. it is the biggest number of people ever to run that anybody can ever remember, ever. and yet i will get like 36, 38, 42. and i have these characters on television that don't have the brains they were born with. ok? and they are dishonest and they are dishonest. ok? but they will say i have this victory were indeed everybody by a lot traded 50%, 14 people even now i have three people so we have three people. it's hard to break 50% when you have three people and yet in new york, i got almost 62%. right? in pennsylvania -- in pennsylvania, i won every single one. nobody remembers that happening before. in delaware the same thing, in maryland if everyone every one of them. in connecticut. i won greenwich connecticut, nobody has ever seen it before. i won the rich areas, i won the poor areas. and you hear, or have she should have gotten more. actually, they did not say that. they always say pharma the always say, we had all these people running and they say, he did not get 50%. and jeb would say, oh, he is not conservative. we have the dummies representing us. they would say i am not conservative because of trade. in terms of trade, i believe in free market. but you can only go with free trade when you have smart people representing you. but we have dummies. we have the dummies representing us. we have real dummies. we have people controlled by special interests so when you have that you can throw in the free trade out the window. you see what free trade has gotten, you see what globalization would we go all over the world because our politicians are corrupt and crooked and they are totally taken care of i -- by campaign contributions and by the way who would know better than me? do i know the system better than anybody in the world? ok? anybody in the world. so we have a rigged deal and here's what's going to happen, it's so important that samargya -- that tomorrow you get out and you vote. tomorrow you have got to get out and vote. because we have a movement going on. bill o'reilly from fox is a tough cookie and i always say man, that was tough. these interviews with him. but i like him. bill o'reilly says in his entire life, his entire life this is the single biggest political phenomenon he has ever witnessed. you, what has happened? the biggest, the biggest. and then i stand here and is packed halls with thousands and thousands and i have to listen to carl cameron gives a phony count, ok? but think of it. bill o'reilly says the single biggest political event, i think that was the word he used, event. of his lifetime. that's a big statement. that's a big statement. that's a guy who's been around and he is a smart guy but that's a big statement. many people have said it to us. but i am a messenger. if you are tired of making less money than he did 18 years ago, you are tired of it, i understand it. i understand it. you are tired of seeing carrier leave your state go to mexico, build a plant, put their equipment and sell it like nothing happened and by the way the air-conditioners cost the same because they have to compete with crane and all the other companies. i buy from all of them. i am not buying from carrier anymore, by the way. i am not buying. but they have to compete with all the other companies. it is going to be the same. they have to make more. and you know what what does it do for us? so i'm a free trader but free trade isn't working and we don't have the people that can do free trade because we don't have the smart people. now nafta destroyed our country, destroyed large sections of our country and by the way you take a look at your manufacturing here. look at the numbers, nafta has been a disaster. what it's done to new england and new york state, what it's done here and what it's done everywhere. bill clinton signed it. bill clinton signed it. that was a clinton deal. it's been horrible. now they want to pass transpacific partnership. ok? that will be worse than nafta and we will suffer. and we're going to stop them from doing it. we are not going to let them continue. you know the document, the document is 6000 pages long and i guarantee you every one of those countries that are involved, every single one of them have read every word, every comma every paragraph and our guys have never even read it i guarantee you. 6000 pages folks. and all it is is another way for other countries to the blood out -- to suck the blood out of the united states. and we are not going to let it happen. impossible for our companies to compete with them so our companies and the bleeding. -- so our companies end up leaving. so, it's devaluation of the currency, especially china which isn't in the tpp but they will be because if it works out as well as people think when they rip us off china will join later on through the back door and they are watching and i guarantee you they have taught people studying that. they are going to come in through the back door at a later date. but ted cruz actually was responsible for making sure that there was no language having to do with evaluation, and and -- to do with devaluation and that's the biggest thing they do to business. and cruz, and he won't talk about it but he's the one responsible and the senators on the list. i mean, if you look at jeff sessions his all-time most respected senator, senator jeff sessions and they talk about him at the beginning. jeff sessions is from alabama. a fantastic guy. he endorsed donald trump. he endorsed trump. that was a great endorsement. we have had so many. we have had so many, but jeff sessions, he doesn't want to do anything about transpacific partnership. he doesn't want to do anything about the manipulation and devaluation of currency and without that focus we are going to -- this will make nafta look like a baby. so we have to get in there fast. we have to knock it out and i don't mind making agreements but we should not make agreements with countries altogether, we should make them one-on-one, one on one and you know what, if they don't treat us right we pulled the agreement. we are all bound up and you ought to see the chart. it's a chart from hell. nobody even knows it and i'm telling you those guys are studying it and nobody from our group has even read the dm -- has even read the damn agreement. and it goes on for many years. one-on-one, if somebody treats us well to make a trade agreement and i will have the best negotiators in the world make a fair agreement. i don't want to be tied up. if country a does this and country c does that, then -- nobody knows what the hell is going on. the bad countries that have not treated as well benefit because they get the benefit of what the good countries are getting so everybody is taking advantage. it's a disaster. we go one-on-one with countries and if they treat us well we take care of them and if they treat us badly we can't get out of it. it's like a spider's web such as remember it and cruz wants that and so does kasich by the way. cruz wants it so we are not going to let it happen. ok? so when i came down the escalator with my wife on june 16, not long ago and i brought up all of these things and i thought at the time it was going to be trade and illegal immigration. i gave a speech in from the beginning we went up from, they weren't polling me because they never thought i was going to run. the press. they never thought i was going to run. so we went up almost from the beginning and within a few weeks we were number one. people agreed with what i was saying and we have been number one ever since. we have been number one ever since. single debate and according to every poll and drudge and "time" magazine, every single one had me number one and i won every debate. and cruz i heard he was a good debater. i think he's a terrible debater unless you want to hear shakespeare. i don't want to hear shakespeare. when he was debating in high school and college, nobody interrupted him. with me, i interrupted him and he got all lost. it's called the real world, right? it's called the real world. so every debate, importantly, right from the beginning just about, i went to number one -- out of all these characters out there. now he has reached the ceiling. i started out at six or five or something. and they said, he has got five and that is hired than most but now he has plateaued at. the next week i went to, like 11. they said, he has 11 and that is as far as he will go. you has 11 who love them. then i went to 14, then i went to 18, then 24. and they kept saying, he has plateaued. i know he has a toad you know, these morons like carl rove. the guy is a more run. he still thinks -- no, no. karl rove. he still thinks romney won. romney got wiped out. he should've won that election. that is an election that should've been one. i backed him. and i backed john mccain. but i backed mccain. he did not win. i backed romney, should've won. did not win. i said, this time i am going to do it myself, folks. we are going to win. we're going to win. we're going to win. so a lot of things happen. i talked about trade, talked about illegal immigration. then you had the killing of kate in san francisco. shot in the back by someone who should've never been allowed in this country. then you had jamil in california. a young boy. his father became a good friend of mine. san francisco. los angeles area, california. he was killed. his father is a great guy. his son was taken for it and illegal immigrant. shot through the base -- through the face three or four times for doing nothing. we are going to build a wall. and then you had, and then you had the incredible veteran, 65-year-old woman raped, sodomized, a and killed in california. this is all over the country. we are not going to take it anymore. not going to take it anymore. we're not taking it anymore. and then, the polls a start coming out word tribe is definitely the best on the border and best on everything. best on everything except they did not like my personality. who cares about my personality? i think i am a nicer person than most of them. the only thing i did not do well on was personality. and by the way, the women. no one respects women more than i do. i will tell you that. and women are looking for security in our country and they know i am going to do the best job. look at hillary. with her call. remember that ad? who is going to be awake at 3:00 in the morning? when they called from benghazi she was sleeping. she was sleeping. she was sleeping. who is going to be awake? she was not awake. so all of the polls are doing great. and we have been doing amazing. but then you had a thing called paris. paris. 130 people were killed, hundreds oh of people lying in the hospital right now injured so badly their lives are destroyed. you have people that went in and just boom, boom. boom, boom, boom. the toughest gun laws in the world paris, france, shooting people, killing people, hurting people. people are so badly injured, hundreds of them. then you had san bernardino. you had a radicalized couple come out. they were given a baby shower by the same people they killed a short while later. boom, boom, boom. no guns on the other side. let me tell you. if you had guns on the other side, whether it's paris, san bernardino, some of the military people that were killed. it would've been a whole different story if those people had guns. a whole different story, folks. and, in fact, it may have never even happen because of these people found out, if they found out there were guns in the room, they would probably have never even gone out. ok? it would've been a completely different story. so we will protect our second amendment. and we are really going to protect our second amendment, ok? we're going to take care of it and cherish it because they are chipping away, chipping away at the second amendment will stop -- chipping away at the second amendment and we are not going to let it happen. the story is we're going to take care of our people. we're going to negotiate deals. we want other countries to do well. but it is going to be america first. when we have 19 trillion in debt going to 21 trillion because of the horrible budget, the omnibus budget. the omnibus. which by the way, finds -- funds obamacare. funds syrians coming in where we have no idea where they are coming in. they are coming here. it is funding illegal immigrants coming in. and lots of other things. you know, i always say that obama is a horrible negotiator except when it comes to negotiating with the republicans in congress. he gets everything he wants. and what happens? and we send these people off, and i am a fan of the tea party which has been maligned over the years. ok? it has just been maligned. but i am a fan. we send these people and they go, we're going to get rid of obamacare. they get elected, right? then they go and they look at the beautiful homes gone the beautiful ceilings, the marble, the statues, and something happens. they become lost. he looks at his wife and he goes, alice we have finally arrived. and then they vote for everything. that is not happening with me. it is not happening with the, folks. not going to happen. so, so, it has been such an honor and i am going to try to see the other two rooms. maybe i will bring carl cameron with me. but i'm going to try to stop by but let me just tell you. it has been just an honor. and hopefully tomorrow, in and get every friend you have that can vote. every friend you can have. everybody. because here's what is going to happen, you are going to remember this evening. thank you. i love you. i love you. i love you. thank you. you got to remember this evening. we had a good time. with a bad subject. bad subject, our country is doing terribly. you know, the real job number is 20% or more. not 5%. that was put in to make politicians look good. if you stop looking for a job, looking, looking, looking, if you stop looking they consider you statistically employed. we're going to bring jobs back to our country and we're not going to let people leave so easily anymore. so you are going to remember this night, but more importantly, you're going to remember the vote you cast tomorrow. and you are going to say, when you look act -- back in five years, 20 years, 50 years, we have somebody young people. i think i have younger people then bernie. by the way, bernie sanders, his system is rigged also. only the republicans rake it in -- rigging it in a much more sophisticated way without the superdelegate thing. but bernie, he wins, he wins, he wins. and then you watch these guys, he can't win. but here's what you've got to do. you have got to vote. and, we have to keep this movement going. we will make america so great, may be greater than ever before. but we might have to suffer and ted cruz will lose the biggest landslide in history. and john kasich, when he gets it with a negative ad. i have had 60,000 negative ad. ted cruz has had none. john kasich has had none. when they get hit with their first negative ad, they are over. with me, i think we are immune to that. and the ads were wrong. the ads are totally phony ads. but here's the story. you are going to look back years from now and say, it was the single greatest vote you've ever cast. and here's why. because our country, our country is going to start winning again. we are going to win with our military. it is being depleted. we're going to build up our military. make it stronger, bigger, better than ever before. so you understand. we have no choice. we have no choice. as part of that, we're going to take care of our great veterans. our veterans have been left behind. very unfair. we're getting rid of common core. we're bringing education local. we're going to win on education. we are going to repeal obamacare and it we are going to come up with something that is so much better and less expensive. we are going to save and protect and cherish our second amendment. the wall. and we're going to our strong borders and we're going to have people come into our country, but they're going to come and legally. legally. and we are going to make unbelievably good trade deals. no more stupid deals where our businesses and money gets sucked out of our country. we're going to make great, great deals made by the greatest people. we have the greatest negotiators in the world right here in this country and we are going to use them, not political hacks that do not know what they're doing and probably, who the hell knows, they are bought off and they're making such bad deals. we're going to make the best trade deals. and you're going to look back and you are going to say, you know what? that is when we started winning again. when trump took over. we're going to win and when, and you're going to say, please mr. trump i cannot take it. but i don't care, we're going to win and we're going to make america great again. i love you. thank you, indiana. i love you. i love you. thank you, indiana. i love you. i love you.his supporters. mr. trump: hello, folks. hello. mexico, all over the place. everyplace but our nation and we are not going to let it happen anymore. we are not going to let it happen anymore. remember that. you heard it here first. with our competitors, the people i run against, i'm still funding. elf funding. i come on my dime. when these other guys come up, it is a different route. just so you understand, they are controlled by the special interests, lobbyists. they are totally controlled by people who put up their money. no good. we have had it. we've now had it. this all began in june and i came down the escalator. i talked about illegal immigration. nobody would be talking about that if i did not bring it up. i talked i talked about the wall -- the wall. you better believe it. 10,000 people at least, just like you standing here, mexico will pay for the wall. they understand it, you understand it. we are going to have strong borders and we are going to stop drugs from pouring in. by the way, pouring in -- i was just backstage at a reporter was telling me how heroin is poisoning areour youth. we are going to stop it. we cannot let it go on like this. i came down the escalator and i said, you know what, this is something i have to do. running for president -- not easy, not easy. although, i'm enjoying it. we are having a good, good time. i love you, too. i love this guy. i love this guy whoever he is. so, i talked about trade, immigration, a lot of things. my focus was trade and illegal immigration. what happened is it took off. who would have thought this is happening now? we are leading in the polls by a lot. lyin'ted cruz has gone way down. whoa. he's gone down. kasich was in favor of nafta. nafta has killed connecticut. it has killed hartford. it has killed big parts of our country. you cannot have people and you cannot vote for people who voted in favor of nafta. it is no good. it is no good. so, i started off with illegal immigration and trade. let me tell you -- let's talk trade because connecticut more than anything else. boy, do you need jobs. we need jobs. we are going to bring jobs back in. we are not going to be the dummies that lose all of our jobs. we are going to be the smart ones. there is one of the dummies. get him out of here. get him out. there is nothing more fun than a trump rally. nothing. get him out. all right. all right. look. do we love our country? doing. militarily, we cannot beat isis. we have people that have no clue. that is going to end, folks, it is going to end. it is going to end right after this election. it is going to end. let me tell you, when i came down, i said you know what we have to do? go ahead. usa, you better believe it. loss. i know, hartford very well. i love connecticut. i know we have problems. we lost general electric. how do you lose general electric? united states. one of the few. this does not help you too much, but you cannot lose general electric. i don't know what happened. i will say this -- if i were governor, i would not be losing general electric. that i can tell you, that i can tell you. so, since 2000, i said give me some stats because i want to have accurate -- this is right out of the book. since 2000, the number of foods that recipients in hartford county, connecticut has increased by 54,000 people. it is an increase of 150%. we need jobs, when he jobs. e need jobs. the economy of the state of connecticut has experienced absolute devastation having to do with manufacturing. we know that. i did not have to get a report to tell you that. i could have told you that. there were 300-7000 peopl in,000 people employed. now there are 159,000. did has been cut init has been cut in half. if i'm elected president, we are bringing our companies back and bringing our jobs back. since only the year 2000. by the way, incidentally, that happens to be the year china entered the world trade. that is really when it came in. you know what? no good. cruz, lyin' ted cruz. do you know who that is? cruz. he supports currency cheating by china because what they have done by devlaaluing their currency -- they are not supposed to be doing -- it makes it impossible for our companies to compete with chinese companies. we are going to stop it. cruz wants it to go want because somebody probably representing interest in china says this is what we want. let me tell you, folks, i'm self fudnding. they are not. they are being funded by companies, countries. they are going to go where the money is, not where you are. remember that, believe me. i have been on the other side of that equation for a long time. i have been a politician -- i hate saying it for nine months, but we are doing pretty well, right? an obama change. we don't need hillary clinton who is a disaster. we don't need hillary clinton. hillary clinton is a joke. hillary clinton -- what she has got to get it in. remember when she said she was poor and had no money and she had tens of millions of dollars? she is a liar, wouldn't you say? i don't know if we can use the same term. you only have one lyin' ted. i don't think we can use the same term for hillary. hillary clinton has neveris not going to bring jobs back to this country. wall street owns hillary clinton. wall street, remember. i agree with bernie sanders -- i agree twice. i agree there. i'm no fan of bernie sanders. i agree on two things -- hillary cannot do it. i agree with him on something very important. he feels foreign trade deals are a disaster. he cannot do anything about it. he does not understand. basically, he is a communist. what the heck? every going to have a are we going to have a communist? the system is rigged. the top republicans said donald, can you stop saying that? i'm telling the truth, i don't care. we are changing the system. all of these bosses have picked delegates -- i'm leaving by hundreds with delegates. i'm leading by millions with votes. hillary clinton said i have more votes than trump. i have been running against 17 people. she is running against one, ok? if i was running against four or five, i would have millions of more votes than hillary clinton. what is happening to the republican party is amazing because millions and millions of people are coming in that did not come in four years ago with romney who let us down. he choked. he choked. he was gagging. we have a lot of athletes. you know, the gag? he was gagging. we have millions of people right now, millions more coming into the republican party. 70%. in terms of votes, the democrats are down 35%. think of it. that don't millions of people who are not going to vote because they are tired of the republicans, the politicians. all talk, no action. they have totally had it. you can have millions of people that are not going to vote and hopefully that is all. they are very, very angry and disenfranchised. we have a rigged system on top of it. despite that, we can get there before the convention. i think we do. the reporters. are paid. we don't have any in hartford, but apple say thisi will say this -- i will put them in different corners because the only time the cameras will show these massive crowds, the only time is when there is trouble. meaning a little bit of a protest the raises their hand and says something. i want to tell you that. they don't tell the story. they don't tell the story. bernie sanders in new york, they said he has 27,000. believe me, that was not 27. when trump has a crowd, they will say, we are here with donald trump. they don't report what is going on. look, some are honest, but they don't report the kind of crowds -- they don't record, report it. bernie always has big crowds. i have much bigger crowd than he does. they don't want to report it. we have a movement going on the likes of which nobody has ever seen in this country. to us in our country. we don't win anymore. we lose that every single facet. get him out of here. out. out. person, right? don't hurt that person. so, i will tell you what -- another they. trump rallies are among the safest places to be on earth. it is true. we don't hear that. because the people in this room love each other and they protect each other and that is what we have to do as a country. we have to protect each other and that means everything. right now, we are undivided country. we have to bring our country back and be inclusive and that means everybody. but we have the safest places that you will ever be. i see it all the time. if one person raises their hand, the next day headlines -- "t rump's protester." i love our loyal people. there are no people like our people. they would have a revolution. china goes down to 7%, 8% and it is a big deal and there is turmoil. we are practically at zero, meaning we have nothing going. when i come up to hartford -- when i go up to new york state and i look at all of those empty buildings that used to have jobs, workers, great companies and those companies have left for mexico and other places -- when i see the kind of business that china is taking out -- china has had 5 -- think of it. 500 and$505 billion -- a deficit. we have a deficit with mexico of $58 billion. we have a massive deficit with japan and vietnam and every single country virtually that we do business with. we have an in competent or crooked people making deals. we are not going to take it anymore, folks. it is over, it is over. you know -- get him out. speech and it is a disgrace. the good news is, folks, it will not be long. it won't be long. recently, they said what do you think of nato? now, i never studied nato but it is obsolete and the united states is paying too much. yeah, get him out, thank you. get him out. get him out. aren't. you know the biggest problem with these protesters is us. may havethey have nothing. the signs are beautifully manufactured and handed to them and they say why are you here? why are you here? the press was saying. the person said i don't know. i was told to be. why are you protesting against trump? i think so, yeah. this is such a con job being placed on the american public. it is a total and complete con job. the worst is this -- they have no voice -- they raise their voice. don't keep pointing to them because we make more noise than they do. there is no problem. we end and upup making the noise. the poor person does not even know why they are there. that don't have a clue. here is the story -- we are going to bring jobs back to our country. we are going to have a strong border. we are not going to let carrier air-conditioning moved to mexico, make air-conditioning, fire people that were there for years and years. i'm a big buyer of carrier products. i will not buy them anymore. we are not going to let carrier moved to mexico. don't make any noise, folks. that is ok. just nice and easy. nice and easy. is this the greatest place on earth to be right here? protesters. i would say get him out of here! and then the press would say it was horrible the way mr. trump behaved. he was so mean and nasty. the next day we had a protest and i said please get him out. you know what happened? they said he is getting weaker. that was no good either. get him out. look at those cameras the way they are all turned. look at those cameras. oh, they are so dishonest. so dishonest. get him out. when these guys -- they don't even show it -- but when they show it, they say we don't really know why we are here. i actually feel sorry. bring back what? ok. i won't say that. so, folks, you're going to be voting very soon. very soon. than i do. i was establishment will month ago,12 months ago, right? they always love you when they take your money. now, i'm probably antiestablishment as got ever d ever created. i understand the game better than anybody. i understand the system and the system is rigged. the economy is rigged, the banks are rigged. we are going to change it around. we are going to bring it back. we're going to really look -- i'm leading and delegates by a lot, but the delegate system is a disaster the way they count. it as a disaster. not fair, not good and not good for democracy. it is not good for what we stand for. so, we are going to win it anyway. we are going to have our 1237 any way. going to remember this evening. you are going to go home to your wife, your boyfriend, whoever you are going on to. whatever it is, enjoy yourself, ok? you are going to say that was a great evening. you are going to go very shortly, not this tuesday but right after, you will go because new york is looking fantastically. new york is looking big, big lead. big, big poll numbers. thea poll came out nationwide -- he is gone, but lyin' ted cruz is like this. lyin' ted. what a liar. lyin' ted. did you evert see -- he walks into a room with his bible held high. lyin' ted, folks. remember what he did to ben carson? ben carson who endorsed me. and chris christie who endorsed me. but, ben carson during the election in iowa -- during the election, he spread the word that ben carson had left the race any told everybody's come vote for him. right after the election, he apologized and said he did not know anything about it. he is lyin' ted, but he is going like this. he is dropping like a rock in the polls. you know, when he goes back in the polls, he is like a basket case. watch what happens. watch how badly we beat him and we are going to have a lot of fun doing it, folks. here's the story -- i love being with you. i have lived in this state and i know this date and i have some of the greatest friends from the state. a lot of great people in hartford. except insurance companies charge me too much money which i hate. our country does not win anymore. we don't win with military, on the borders, health care, we don't win with our second amendment which by the way will be 100% protected by me. two years, four years, 20 years -- we will look at your family and friends and say that was the greatest vote i have ever cast. that is when america became great again. that is when we started winning again. that is when we won with our military. we are going to take down isis fast. that is when we started winning on trade. that is when we ended common core and broaderught our education back. you will say that was the greatest vote you ever cast because that is when america became great again. i love you. thank you all. thank you. thank you. thank you, everybody. thank you all. amazing people. thank you. thank you, everybody. thank you.mr. trump: good evening. how are you? yes ma'am? mr. trump: i think the republican party is going to do well. you have another party that has problems. i just saw it coming over, the e-mail situation for hillary is a big problem. if they judge it fairly, she has a big problem. no, not at all. i have been proven right. i have absolutely been proven right. that is the highest for anybody yet. i can only go by the polls. the people we are dealing with, it is what it is. you look at the results. iowa came out a little while ago. leading in iowa and new hampshire, north carolina, south carolina. nevada. leading everywhere. that is all i can go by. excuse me? that is the best question. china. china. i think you have to do something to rein in china. the d value to their currency and are making it impossible for the u.s. to compete. china has no respect for president obama whatsoever. you have to take strong actions. how can we compete? they continuously devalue their currency. they have been doing this for years. this was the largest devaluation they have had in two decades. they are making it impossible for our businesses to compete. they think we are run by a bunch of idiots. what is going on with china is unbelievable. the largest devaluation in two decades. a great question. it is a disgrace. major, fantastic. i watched you with president obama two weeks ago. he was not thrilled. i'm sure i will be more thrilled. itself, go bankrupt. a lot of people think that is the way it should have gone. i could have done it either way. i think you would have ended up ultimately in the same place. yes ma'am? race relations are at an all-time high or low? that, certainly. at what is going on in every place. you have powder cakes. you need spirit and you need jobs. we need to take jobs back from china and other countries that have taken our jobs. that is why when the question was asked about china, it is terrible. more jobs are going to go. yes, ma'am? the hispanic vote. the women vote. if you look in nevada, they did the poll. i am leading the hispanic vote because i create jobs. i will be creating tremendous numbers of jobs. women's health issues, i am for that. i watched jeb bush give the worst answer the other day. that is going to be his 47%. romney possibly lost the elections for many reasons, but one reason was 47%. i think jeb's answer on women's health issues the other day was a disaster for him. he said he misspoke. how do you misspoke? i will be great on women's health issues. i cherish women. i will be great on women's health issues, believe me. oh, hello, david.... text mr. trump: hopefully everything. mr. trump: you did not bring up isis. mr. trump: when you are coming up with a plan, you have to be flexible. i recently got something in miami, everybody wanted it. if i had said, here is a 12 point plan, i did not do that. i went in and punched in beat the hell out of people and i ended up getting it. all the smart money wanted it. the old post office. everybody wanted it. i got it. in the obama administration, i got it which is shocking. i got it. i got it because i know how to get things done. you cannot sit down and say, well, i'm going to come up with a 19 point plan to get the old post office and turn it into a great hotel. the most sought after property in the history of the general services administration. trump got it. i am not an obama person. you have to have flex ability.... text mr. trump: there has to be a trust. if you do not trust, you will not do well. negotiate against china. he will not be able to negotiate against mexico. jeb bush with mexico said people come in, it is an act of love. it is not an act of love. we need a wall. you see what is happening with illegal immigration. if it were not for me, they would not even be talking about illegal immigration. you see what happened in san francisco, yesterday in california, which was horrible. the whole situation with jeb bush, his act of love, it is not working. i took a lot of heat and then people realized i was right and apologized to me. we are going to be announcing numbers and specifics, knowing that what i just said is right. you have to be flexible on jobs and everything else. i will be speaking about it later. we will be taking jobs away from china, away from all these countries stealing from us. they are stealing our base, money, manufacturing. we will bring them back to the u.s. forward, as an example, is building a $2.5 billion plant in mexico. how does that help us? i went to the wharton school of finance. if they are spending $2.5 billion to build a car plant in mexico. cars and parts are going all over the u.s., but they are coming into the u.s., no tax. how does that help us except they are closing plants in michigan. we are talking about bringing back jobs to the u.s. yes, sir? they could not get it. you know one of the reasons? environmental impact statements. there were toads. we are going to get the wall built. it is going to be built right. mexico is going to pay for the wall. in mexico is making a fortune off the u.s. mexico is going to pay for the wall and they are going to be happy about it. the cost of the wall is peanuts compared to the kind of money they are making. mexico is becoming the new china. i have a great love for mexico. i have a love for the mexican people. i have thousands of mexican people over the years that have worked for me. thousands. they are fantastic people. but there politicians and leaders are smarter and sharper and more cunning. they are more cunning than our leaders. they will pay for the wall, they will be happy about it, they will continue to do well but not as well as they are doing right now. they are taking too many of our jobs. one of the networks today. there should have been 2 million people watching. that has been sort of standard. there are 24 million people. it is going to go to 28-29 or 30. who do you think they are watching, jeb bush? i don't think so. youi don't think so. i hope not. i want to run as a republican to read that is what i am doing and i am leading in every poll. the local and national polls and by substantial margins. i hope i will be the republican nominee because that is the best way to win. i will keep the door open if i'm not treated fairly. the word is fairly, not well. if i'm not treated fairly, we will see what happens. i was part of the establishment. i is let me explain. i was the establishment two months ago. i was the fair-haired boy, a big giver. once i decided to run, i am a semi-antiestablishment. now leading in the polls, they are treating me well. me and there are people have been terrific. and they are dealing with my people. we have a great relationship. you i want to run as a republican, i don't want to run as a third party or independent. as long as i am treated fairly, that is going to be the case. you are fairly is an instinct. you i want fair. you know what fair is. youyou know what fair is. i know what fair is. i think that is happening. are win, lose, or draw, i'm not saying i have win. you might if i win the nomination, i guarantee you i will not run a third-party you will not run a third-party candidate. one more question? yes. will you i would never give up my microphone. i thought that was disgusting. that showed such a weakness. the way he was taken away by two young women, they just took the whole place over. the audience, which liked him, they are saying, how could that happen? that will never happen with me. i felt badly for him. it showed he is weak. you know what? he is getting the biggest crowds and i'm getting the biggest crowds. but believe me, that is not going to happen to trump. yes? you could win it. you are way out in front. i agree.mr. trump: oh, they are over here. fantastic. tell them what you do. mr. trump: so with $100,000 you can do a lot, right? mr. trump: use it well. say hello to todd. mr. trump: who would have thought this would happen? i am a strong guy with the military, i would say the most militaristic of all, and i want to build our military, jerry, so strong, so powerful that nobody is going to mess with it. but i said to reuters and others early on, 2004, 2003, the war is the wrong thing. we will be stabilize the middle east if you take out one of the two, iraq or iran. what a mess has been created. and when we got out of it, with obama, the way he got out of it, and announcing the specific date we leave -- i can't believe that they did this -- and they go to town we live. i cannot use the term comedy of errors because there is nothing funny. what has gone on is so sad. now we have helped create this massive migration. you look at what is going on in germany. it is a total mess. they are having riots. crime is through the roof. everybody. have you been to brussels? it is so beautiful. everything. it is like an armed camp now. create a safe zone. we all have hearts. create a safe something rate with got to get the gulf states, who are tremendously rich, who frankly are not spending much money, and they are not taking anybody. we are protecting them. let them fund it. we are funding everything. that is $19 trillion. we get them to fund it, and we create a big safe zone in syria or a number of save zones and people stop. they have done this migration through germany. we all have hearts. i think it is sad to see. when you see that line, that massive migration, you see so many young, strong men, right? the first time i noticed it was early on. at first you say, it's a little unusual. it just seems to me -- and you look at it -- young, strong men. we are going to take them into the country. we have already started. thousands and thousands. isis? is this a trojan horse. we are not going to take any if i am there. and anyone who comes and, sadly, i'm telling you, they will have to go back. they have to go. there is no way, jerry. i have got the top law enforcement people. i have read their statements. the top people say there is absolutely no way you can tell where these people come from. they have no papers, there is no background, no background checks. it's like starting off with a person from zero. they have no idea. we cannot afford this as a country. we cannot afford this from an economic or perhaps, most important, from a security standpoint. we cannot do it. and you saw sheriff joe from arizona -- right? he endorsed me. and when sheriff joe endorses you, you are the strongest, i will tell you -- the whole immigration thing, how that worked out. we will have a really strong border. we will have a wall. people will come in, but they will come in legally. we got the endorsement. and sarah palin and this gentleman, one of the greats, and my boy, he is a great shooter, they go hunting together. sarah is going to be on "the today show," actually. she will be on monday, so that is exciting.... text mr. trump: i spoke at liberty and it's an amazing place. what jerry and becky have done is absolutely incredible, taking over from their father. it is so beautiful and breaking the record was important. do you know who's record high broke? my record from four years ago. but you know the interesting thing is every single candidate goes to liberty university. everybody. because it is an amazing place. it is a packed house. these are fantastic young people. i guess some people are not young, but amazing people. and it was such an honor for me because he sees everything, and you know, it was such an honor for me. he looked and said one thing about me that i like better than everybody else. he said i most resemble his father in terms of my ideas, my attitude, my way, and that to me was the greatest implement. ok? i thought that was better than anybody else's complement. -- anybody else's compliment.... text mr. trump: they just did the polls, cnn and others did. they do the polls. i love these polls. because i am in first place. if i was not in first place, we would not be talking -- it's funny. i watch these candidates. they spend millions of dollars on polling. i don't spend a lot of money. i get it from these guys. they do polls. they say, is he a nice guy, a wonderful guy, a terrible guy, is he tall, is he short? the spend all of this money on polling, jerry. candidates, hundreds of thousands of dollars in a month. what are they doing polling for? it's true. save your money. it's interesting because they did a poll, a big bowl, and on the economy i came out so much higher, triple and quadruple, like down at six and five and i met 67. that is with 15, 16, 17 people in the race. we have to bring back our jobs. by the way in the polls -- number one on security, number one isis, number one in almost every category. the only thing i was not number one on? or senility. can you believe it -- personality. can you believe it? they said i am not a nice person. i'm a nicer person than all of them. i will tell you what just happened. i read this -- it said "voter violation." ted cruz issued a statement, put it in people's houses. "voter violation." it looks like a government voter violation. it is a social thing. they are not allowed to do it. they are investigating him now. he is putting in houses "voter violation." i never heard of anything like this. it is so dishonest. it is so dishonest. then he took an ad about me and he said i'm in favor of obamacare. my whole campaign is against obamacare. and the only way i can fight it is i have a much bigger platform than anybody else. what he does not say is that he filled out a financial disclosure form, personal financial disclosure form, and on the form -- he wants to pretend he is robin hood. he is going to protect everyone from wall street. he forgot to mention he borrowed a lot of money at almost no interest. he pays almost nothing -- from goldman sachs and citibank. he forgot to put the to do banks on there. forgot to mention it. and of course the bigger problem is he was born in canada. people say that he cannot even be running. to me, that is a problem. if he becomes the candidate, it is possible that he can't even run, according to a lot of people. i see so much dishonesty and politics, jerry. i have never seen anything like it. it is so dishonest. first of all, the guys in the back, the press, among the most dishonest people i have met in my life. make it look bad. the great thing is -- i am talking 75% to 80%. there are 20% of them that are good. the people we are dealing with -- you are right. thank you. look at those people. back in the corner. is that beautiful? every room, jerry, every room we go to is packed. whether is a stadium, mobile alabama, the mavericks arena in dallas, 20,000 people, 21,000 people. oklahoma, 20,000 people twice. every place we go, i wish you had some bigger arenas here. i have to tell you. we have capacity crowds. what i have found is people are really smart, jerry. they get it. they really get it. by far the trump voters, the trump person is most loyal. by far. have to really behave in front of jerry. but they say donald trump can do practically anything and they are still voting for him, they are still going to caucus for him. i am very happy about it. 67%, 69% and then just about with him, i think i get into the 90's. i think other people are at 9% and 12%. hired to were you. you are going to make a decision soon, monday. -- i adore you. you were going to make a decision soon, monday. we are going to make america great again, i promise.... text you, donald! mr. trump: i love you, too. jerry, it may be a guy, but i love them. mr. trump: i would love to, but maybe first your family -- becky, mrs. falwell is here. she is just an amazing person, such a big influence on jerry. becky, could you and the family come up please? bring those beautiful children and spouses -- come on up. come on up. this is becky in the family. i assume the stage can hold us, right? if it doesn't, we have a big story.... text mr. trump: i tell you what. i said i will give you a deal. he said, i want to pay full price. i said, nobody has ever said that to me before. he insisted on it. i'm not used to that.... text you. mr. trump: thank you, hon. mr. trump: well, i would, i love to. i brought with me -- they wanted to be here so badly, my wife -- come on up, honey. she has been so supportive. i tell you what. we talk about pollsters, right? she said, you know if you run you will win? i said what do you mean? she said, if you run, you will win. the people respect you and love you. and if you do not run, you will never get an honest whole. they can pull you, but she is to me, that won't work. nobody believes your going to run unless you actually stand up and announce. i said, what if i stand up and announce it goes badly? she said if you run, you will win. and almost from the date we announced, we have been in first place, jerry. here is my best pollster. thank you, honey.... text mr. trump: thank you, baby. that's some nice. thank you, honey. i have somebody that nobody knows -- ivanka. and her husband jarret. ivanka is about eight and a half months pregnant and the doctors said it would be much better if you did not make the trip -- he is very tough by the way. and he is a great young man, went to harvard, very smart, doing a fantastic job in business. has done an amazing job. just incredible. ivanka, i said, don't make the trip. politically, wouldn't it be great if she had her baby in iowa? that would guarantee me victory, wouldn't it? say something, honey?... text mr. trump: thank you. thank you, honey. thank you everybody. mr. trump: i never liked talking about a running mate into we get the deal done. we have to get the deal done. so many people say, do you have anybody in mind. we started off with 17. they are dropping like flies. you know that. new hampshire has been unbelievable for us. we are leading by tremendous numbers. i will give you somewhat of an answer. this is actually a very important question. in iowa -- ready -- you have a lousy record. 16 years and you have not picked a winner. please pick a winner this time, ok? i'm going to win. i'm going to win. 16 years. you've got to get it done, get it done right. we are going to win. and leaving against hillary in the polls. and i will tell you this -- a friend of mine who is a very political guy said, the one person she does not want to run against is trump, and chuck todd is a very nice guy. they go, oh, yes, we want to run against trump. i said, chuck, you don't understand. when they say they want to run against you, they do not want to run against you area do you understand that? we are going to win. we had a series of egg setbacks. we should have won four years ago. how that one was lost -- we had a failed president. were not going to blame anybody. it did not work out. john mccain had a tough time. we certainly should have won four years ago. i backed mccain, did not work. i backed romney, did not work. this time i said, let's do it ourselves and do it. so, really, 16 years is too long. and one thing i have to say before we get to that --... text mr. trump: you better. these are tough sounding guys. i will tell you -- really important. we have to get right. we have to get it right. they want to move iowa to the back of the pack. you know that. i give you word -- i give you my word. i am president, i control it, you are staying right where you are. so is new hampshire. and jerry, it is such an amazing tradition. even the caucus -- it is complicated, but you really have to want to have somebody to go out and do this. it's such a great system. i do not know if i would want to have every state like that. but it's in amazing tradition. if i win, it is staying right where it is. they are not moving you guys to the back of the pack. just remember that. as far as a vice president is concerned, it's a very simple test. he was going to be the best president if something should happen. that is ultimately what it is all about. that being said, you want to pick someone who can help you. you want to pick someone may be a state you have to win. there is a big story that trump is winning with hispanics -- a big story -- and i'm not surprised because i'm going to bring back jobs. it's actually a big story. i'm supposed to be doing phenomenally with people who are here illegally -- legally. ready soon we will have you legal starting to vote if we do not get tough and smart. but we want somebody who can be a great president always, but also someone who can get us to the goal so you do not have another four years of losses. and there are great people out there. republicans have some great people out there. i think we will have tremendous success areas one of the stories written was that -- if trump wins -- first all if trump-hillary -- if she gets there. i don't know if she's going to get there with this e-mail stuff. issue she going to get there? i don't know. it will be the largest voter turnout in the history of the united states. and you know that, the debate i participated -- 24 million, 25 million people. cnn had the largest show in the history of cnn. i think if i was not an -- insulted and we went through normal channels, i think that would have been larger than the 25 million people in the first debate. i think that would have surpassed it. they said it and they said it very strongly. the concept of winning new york state is impossible for any of the people i am dealing with. in possible. it's i do something -- they don't even campaign there. i think we have a chance to win new york. they like me in new york. by the way, if we win new york, you talk about a lot of delegates. right? but if we win new york, we are talking about a lot. we are going to win virginia, we are going to win michigan. i'm always talking about the car business being stripped out of michigan. we did well in ohio. i like john kasich very much. i am beating him by a lot. he is the serving governor. we are going to win florida. i am 38% against 16 people. i think a lot of state that are not even thought of -- you look at some of the states they don't even talk about the state as a republican. i think we can win states that aren't even thought of in the normal route and you're going to have yourself a victory, folks. and i tell you what. i am not going to disappear like the last group did. i kept thinking, where is he? why isn't he on television? why isn't he doing jay leno and letterman and the shows? every night you see obama is on television, television, television. and i call in sick, he has to do jay leno. he has to do with david letterman. i don't know. they took a vacation the last month of the campaign. it's not going to happen with trump, folks. we are going to win. thank you very much. thank you so much. thank you, jerry. thank you becky and the family. thank you, everybody. which is responsible for its caption content and accuracy. visit ncicap.org]... text mr. trump: thank you, folks. >> think of me in the depths of your despair keep thinking that we almost had it all we could have had it all and you played it, to the beat tears are going to fall, rolling in the deep you had my heart inside of your... textmr. trump: you know, today, if you notice, we have a stock market not doing so well. we have a country not doing so well. we have politicians other than the few politicians who are with us tonight. we will exclude them. we have politicians who do not have a clue. they have -- they are all talk and no action. what is happening to this country is disgraceful. and when i announced i was running for president, i brought up the subject of illegal immigration. been so badly hurt. the other day in california last week, a woman, 66 years old, a veteran, was killed, raped, sodomized, tortured, and killed by an illegal immigrant. we have to do something. we have to do it. so, we are going to talk. we're going to have a lot of fun. the weather is a little dicey. that's ok. who cares if it rains, right? right? -- i will prove once and for all that it is mine, ok? so, we are going to talk about a lot of different subjects, and tonight is friday night, what the heck, right? what is better? what is better? country, that is what we have here. the people who built this country. good people. so, we will start with a little talk on illegal immigration, what is going on. we've got to stop it. we are going to build a wall, and it's got to be -- you know, it's amazing. the politicians, 10 years ago, 15 years ago they all wanted a wall. it never happens. because somebody did not want it. probably a lobbyist. all of these guys like bush and hillary clinton, they are all taken care of. i do not know if you know -- when jeb bush -- who is totally in favor of common core, week on immigration -- cannot use "anchor babies." now that i have used it, he is using it. he has $14 million. in hillary's case, she has $60 million. i do not know if she will make it to the gate. what do you think? i'm not sure she is making it to the gate. some bad things came out today. classified as you know the word classified? you know, they destroyed general petraeus over less and nothing seems to be happening here. it will be interesting to see what happens ultimately. but we have right now -- and i just got these numbers today. i said what are they? 7.5% of all of the births in this country are illegal immigrants, ok? can't afford it. and they are supposed to stay. i turned out right. the 14th amendment. i had these guys say, oh, you can't change the 14th amendment. it will take so long. on that i agree, but you know what? the 14th amendment, i was right. you can do something with it and you can do something fast. you can do something fast. take care of your it in the case of other countries, including mexico, they do not do that. it does not work that way. you do not walk up the border one day and all the sudden we have another american citizen. mexico does not do not do it. very few places do it. we are the only place just about that is stupid enough to do it. i have to say. this has been great. jeff sessions? he was so great. such a help. i go around and i see so many people and i have been treated so well by the people and we are leaving in every poll. we are leaving and just about every state, including alabama. florida, i love florida. it's a great place, right? but florida, we have a governor, we have a sitting senator, and i'm killing them. obviously, they are not doing a very good job. because that should not be happening, but we are winning in florida, pennsylvania, iowa, new hampshire, south carolina, nor airliner, text -- north carolina, texas. and then nationally, we are just absolutely way ahead of everybody else. in fact, if this were another country, we could maybe call for an expedited election, right? i don't know. can we do that? can we do that? i would like to have the election tomorrow. i don't want to wait. so, the reason that i think we see this receptivity is that i know the game better than anybody. i have been on the other side. you know, i was totally establishment. i gave tens of millions of dollars all the time to these characters. i was like the fair-haired boy. do i look fair haired? but i knew the game. i understand it. so many people, lobbyist. -- so many people come up, lobbyists. a guy came up, a good man, i know him. i don't want your money. -- lobbyist. i don't want your money. maybe i should rethink it? should i rethink it?... text mr. trump: can i do that? i built a great business and i feel sort of stupid. i don't want your money. can i take it please? i promise i won't do anything for them. i told him, i don't what your money because indeed of years when you come to see me about something, i'm not doing it unless it is good or it's going to make america great again. right? but i think him going to have to rethink it. i'm going to rethink that because i think i should take a lot of money -- are we allowed to give it to charity or something? just take it. these guys come up, and i'm lucky. everybody said, he's never going to run. you know that, right? my wife said, you know -- she knows me pretty well. and she sees the reaction. for a long time, whether it was trump, the ark of the deal -- which obama and kerry obviously did not read when they -- oh, look. "the art of the deal." i love that book. hey, give me that book. give me that. that is the real one. that is the original. that is when they used real paper, right? i said the other day -- because so many people carry around "the art of the deal," because they are begging, they are begging their politicians, read the article when you negotiate with china and mexico and vietnam and saudi arabia and with everybody. you know, right now, we have a problem where north korea is getting frisky, right? recently i ordered 4000 television sets. can you believe i was able to find a guy -- i know how to do that. you know that. there made in america and i am going to give you your book. believe me, i have not forgotten about you. but they are made in america, but the other day, and now i see today is pretty hot in the news -- our very dear friend from north korea is acting a little bit rambunctious today. so i ordered 4000 television sets from south korea. whether it is same song or lg or any of them. they're all made in south korea. i tell you, it's a fortune. they are making a fortune. do we have anybody who makes television sets and this country? i don't think so, right? they are mostly made, other than sony -- which has lost its way. the prices are too high. but they are mostly made in south korea. so i see that north korea is acting up. so, we are getting our troops ready and we are getting ready, just in case -- we get nothing. we get nothing. what do we get? we get nothing? saudi arabia -- and i get along great with all of them. they spend $40 million, 50 million dollars. am i supposed to dislike them? i like him very much. saudi arabia makes $1 billion a day. a day. in all fairness, that is before the oil when done a little bit. that's ok. these are minor details. now let's make it half a billion a day. that's not so bad. we get nothing. we get nothing. they would not be there without our protection. even germany, germany is a power . who has a mercedes-benz, anybody? a lot of people. they are a power. they pay us nothing. we defend the whole world. wouldn't it be nice -- somebody said, that is like the mafia. don't worry about it. the mafia is not so stupid, all right? they say, that's terrible to ask for money. they said it. that's terrible. how can you possibly as for money to defend the country? tell me. tell me. how crazy are we? now we are sending our everything -- i will tell you what, we've got those 28,000 troops on the border between north and south korea, that's dangerous territory. they are in harms way. they are in harms way. and we get nothing. we get nothing. other than they are a good competitor. they take our trade. we lose a fortune with them. we lose a fortune with china. we defend japan. we have an agreement with japan where if somebody attacks japan, we have to come to the rescue, but if we get attacked, japan does not have to help us. do you think that's a good deal?... text no! mr. trump: like sergeant bergdahl. has anyone heard of sergeant bergdahl? the traitor. i called president obama. six people at least, that we know of, six people were killed trying to get this guy back. six people. they went after him. they wanted to get him back. so we get sergeant bergdahl and they get five people they desperately wanted for years that are right now back on the battlefield tried to kill everybody, including us. how stupid are we? how stupid are we? and, you know, the reason -- no matter where i go, the overnight in new hampshire, new hampshire was so incredible. every time i go on television, it's got to be live. it's alive. i said, can i have a rest please? it is live on fox. who likes fox? i like fox. every time i speak, it has to be live. it's ridiculous, but it's ok. right? we have to suffer with it. but look. the reason i have this really incredible enthusiasm, and the really appreciate it with this weather and his heat and everything else, but the reason i have it is because i do know what i'm doing, and i don't say that in a braggadocio way. you people are looking for someone who knows what he is doing, whatever it is. of here. she's so beautiful. my second favorite book of all time. what is my first favorite book?... text mr. trump: the bible. the bible. and as much as i love "the art of the deal," it's not even close. we take the bible all the way, right? at this point, my brand. i mean, i lose gutless macey because i say something about immigration. they are gutless. they are all gutless. i have to sue univision. univision -- these beautiful women. beautiful women. and i get dropped by -- think of it. you have these magnificent women who worked all their lives to be in the miss usa contest and two weeks before, nbc and univision dropped because they thought my tone was a little bit strong. so, here is the good news. i sued them both. $500 million. i want that money. i want that money. so, i actually put it on the other day -- miss usa, because it was only fair to the people. we had it on the small network and it was fine, but who would do that? all because they want to be so politically correct. the actually called and said, we will get it back on him, we will get it back on soon. they said "trump loses nascar." it was all over the world. i opened with a strong statement, meaning illegal immigrants, we got to solve the problem. no,. "trump loses nascar" i don't have a deal with nascar. it turned out -- it turned out -- you know what they did? they had a ballroom. i kept their deposit and rented it to somebody else, by the way. the next day, espn severs ties. i have friends who calmly from paris. a great businessman. oh, it is to bad what happened with espn. i have a golf outing, this was a big deal. this is all over the world. the past -- maybe they did not get it, maybe they do not get it. i was very disappointed with macy's. they heard that there were going to be pickets in front of the store, and they said, oh, we will have pickets. i said, intake of hours they will be gone. they will go for lunch, they won't come back. they said, this is so bad. can we sever ties? i said, i don't care. i did not like their ties that much anyway. they are made in china. it drove me nuts. it's true. i just hate gutless people. so, the reason we are getting this receptivity, which is like it -- like this all over the place. i found my papers and i said i am going to run and i'm going to sign the big document, which is the one page document which is basically you're giving your life away, and i sign and they say, oh, i can't believe it. they pay half $1 million to make jerks out of themselves -- the pundits. some are great. some are -- really aren't. he says i know which one. there's more than one. there were about 50. now there is about five. they're coming around. what happens -- he will never file. he will never file, because he is probably not as rich as people think. actually one of the reasons -- i want to file my financials. they are so good. it's true. it's true. so, i had about 102 pages, 98 pages of stuff and all of these boxes, over 50 million, over 50 million, and they were phenomenal, phenomenal. much better. and people realize -- this is not bragging and i will tell you why. over $10 billion. very little debt. very little debt. to show you how stupid -- it has a line for income, and is it over $400 million a year. if i could question mark son is here. he can live on that. i had a line for income. it buries with different things, but basically over $400 million at year. is there anybody who would not want to make that much money in one year here? anybody? with that comes responsibility, but i will tell you this. the reason people like what i am saying is because i want to put that energy, whatever the hell kind of energy it is -- i don't know if it is screwed up, genius, whatever it is. i know how to do things. we are building a great building on pennsylvania avenue right opposite, between, as you know, the white house in the old post office. always get the post office. they were there first. i got the old post office and washington, d.c., and i got it from the obama administration. do you believe that? that is called dealmaking. one of the most sought after buildings and we got it and we were doing a great job and they wanted to make sure it would get done. it will be opening. here is that little story. it is now under budget and ahead of schedule. do you ever hear that from government? i will not let them do any big deals. just relax, eric. just relax. but you know what question mark i don't care about the company. who cares if we do a building question mark it doesn't mean anything. my whole energy will be to make our country rich and make our country great again area that is my whole -- aptitude for making money. some people would say, mr. trump that is very crass. you said you will make the country rich. that's very crass. in order to make our country great, i have to make it rich again. we are a debtor nation. anyone with a sign that big has to agree. so, i will devote -- i could not care less about the old post office. i could not care less about any of our stuff. i just want to make this country so great, and that's what's going to happen. and that's what's going... text to happen. -- i will give you a couple of examples. in alabama, u.s. steel, with -- we have a closure. i went around and i said does anybody work there? big closure. one of the reasons is china is dumping so much steel into the united states and really other countries also. but china -- i love that sign, look at that, huh? wow. oh, that's true. the only problem is you are breaking everybody's view, but the sign is fantastic... text area thank you. tremendous amounts of steel into our country. the government is subsidizing it. it is almost like they want us to just die. and they have no respect for us. and again likes of your rig it, like japan -- i get along with them great. the largest bank in the world is in one of my buildings. they spent so much money. am i supposed to dislike them? their leaders are really cunning. they are really sharp. we have dummies. we have dummies. we have people who don't have a clue. some people say they are bad people. i don't think they are bad people. i don't think they are bad. i think they are incompetent. so, you look at china and what they have done and last week -- and i said this and i have been saying this for a long time read you have been hearing it. last week, they devalue their currency and we are having a lot of hard times because of what they did. when i hear devaluation of the chinese currency, you know the word be sucking action -- the sucking action like a vacuum. two things happen. two things get sucked out of us. our jobs and are money. think of it. china sells us our product, takes our jobs, does a manufacturing for us, and we owed them $1.4 trillion. that is like a magic act. i call it the magic act in reverse. we owed them money. japan -- in japan is back. they have abe as the new prime minister, as you know, and abe is really smart. he is smart. i met him one time. he is sharp. and he's negotiating against caroline... text kennedy. "60 minutes." i will give you guys a plug. i was watching " 60 minutes" and they are doing a feature on carolyn kennedy. you know what i like her? my daughter likes her. anybody my daughter likes. we loveivanka. -- we love ivanka. how you become the ambassador to japan. we need somebody sharp. we need a smart killer. not a dumb killer. there are plenty of dumb killers, too. they said, how did you get the ambassadorship, and she said well -- this is pretty close. you can check it out. she said, well, i don't know. i wanted a job. so i went to the white house and i said, could i have a job? do you have anything for me to do question mark and they said, how would you like to be ambassador to japan? and she said really? she said, i'll do it. she could not believe she got it. and then she showed the rest of the show was her being wined and dined by abe and all of these killers. being feted a dinner and lunches and breakfast. -- being fed at a dinner and lunches and breakfasts. so, i have the meanest, in many cases most horrible human beings on earth. they are killers. some are nice people. very few. some are nice people. but i will put the meanest, smartest -- we have the best in the world. we do not use them. we use political hacks, diplomats, people who do not have any business ability. we use people who have never done a job. someone stole my plane. people are pointing up to the plane. an example -- carl icahn. anyone ever hear of carl? he's an unbelievably brilliant, tough businessman. i call him. i say, you know, carl, i'm doing pretty well. i'm leaving every poll. he said, you're doing great. i can't believe it either.... text mr. trump: remember when i said someone had blood coming out of her eyes with hatred? he had blood coming out of his eyes. at he is an unbelievable negotiator. unbelievable negotiator. i know the best. i know the worst. i know the ones that are overrated. i know the ones you have never heard about that are better than all of them. but carl is one of the greatest. he is very famous. he is very rich. he would love to do it. he would love to give back. he knows what is happening. they are ripping us. so, they send this stuff over here and somebody of the other day said what china has done to the united states is the greatest single theft in the history of the world. since that statement we have rebuilt china. we have rebuilt china. so, we have free trade. the problem with free trade is when you have free trade -- very important, you need competent leaders. that is the one problem with free trade. i like free trade. i am a free trader. you need great negotiators. we'll have that. we are getting killed by everybody. we do not make good deals. everybody is killing us. at so, we will have unbelievable deals. a friend of mine is a manufacturer, and he's trying to do business with china -- and he's a good manufacturer. makes great products. better than what they do. they do not want him sending stuff. he calls me. it is impossible to do business. their stuff comes over here by the ship load. he says is impossible. he finally gets a product in there and they charge him a massive tax which they call a tariff, because it sounds a little more sophisticated, right? boeing does business with china, and they want all of their intel, all of their copyrights, they won everything. otherwise we are not buying your plane. i don't blame china. i respect them. i'm not angry at them. i'm angry at our leaders for being so stupid your it i'm not angry at china. -- i'm angry at our leaders for being so stupid. i'm not angry at china. mexico is the same thing. the other day and invesco -- nabisco -- oreos. i love oreos. i'm never eating them again. i will never eat them again. no, nabisco closes the plant they just announced a couple days ago in chicago and they are moving to mexico. know why? why? why? have you heard my story -- have you heard the story before? do we want to hear it again or not? yes? all right. it's a big one. fort, great company -- ford, great company, they are building a car factory in mexico. they are closing bases up all over the united states. they are building a massive factory in mexico. in grade school i was -- hopefully still really smart. i went to a great school. hard to get into. even then it was hard to get into. i went to this great business school. i fully understand. i'm really good at this stuff. so, they are building a $2.5 billion plan. they will sell those parts back to us. where does that help us? explain. there is no tax. there is no nothing. there is no nothing. so, closing a plant here, building a massive plant in mexico, another plant, another big foreign car company -- there is a plant being built. they were all set to get started. in tennessee. you read all about it. a couple months ago, "wall street journal," all set to get started. mexico took it away. it will not be billed in kennett -- it will not be built in tennessee. it will be built in mexico. i did this. it really is sort of bright. i give myself this sort of position. i say, let's assume somebody else becomes president. wouldn't that be horrible? let's assume somebody else becomes president. a very low-energy person -- a very low-energy person -- very low energy, slow energy that every time you watch them, you fall asleep. he said hilleary. yeah, hillary, too. let's say jeb becomes president. like i said, your schools go to hell. but forgetting about that. let's say jeb does not want this plant built. they will call him, the head of ford. and they will say, we do not want to build it. the next hour, he will get a call from the lobbyists and the special interests and his donors and they will say, hey, jeb, we gave you $8 million of the $120 million you raise. we want that thing done. you cannot do that to our people. oh, ok, it's going to get done, ok? let's take trump as president. ok? is that better? is that better? a pollster? why do i need a pollster. everyday i wake up and there's another poll. unless they have something vetted with her pollster, they can't talk. what do i need? save your money. cnn does this really expensive, really well done whole. -- well done poll. you know the thing i'll be great at? military. i am the toughest guy. i will rebuild our military. it will be so strong and so powerful and so great. it will be so powerful and so great that we will never have to use it to read nobody's going to mess with us, -- it. nobody's going to mess with us, folks.... text mr. trump: i look at the various things to do with our country. they did another poll on who is one of the most popular. i was the most popular person. the 35 years these senators -- other than jeff -- the senators, congressmen, people in washington -- they have done nothing to take care of our vets. they do this poll and in the poll a score really high with folks on almost everything. other than they thought i wasn't a nice person. and i'm a nice person. but who cares? a woman came up to me and said, i'm not sure you are nice enough to be president. this is not going to be an election based on a nice person. it's going to be based on a competent person. i won on jobs. i won on leadership by massive numbers. i won in all these categories. we don't need an election. these are such important categories. i've had an amazing experience because from the time i announced, almost other than the first week -- the press, which is largely very dishonest -- the media -- i actually think the political media is less popular than congress. can you believe it? and congress has almost no ratings. look at all those cameras. they are all live and they are trying to shut off the camera right now. they're all live. so many live cameras. honest story and i cherish those. they really started treating me much better. when i first ran, i said it's amazing, went to a great school, smart guy, my uncle was a professor at m.i.t.. good family. do we believe in the gene thing? i do. like they used to say, secretariat does not produce -- tremendous company. "the art of the deal" is maybe the best-selling business book of all time. i did "the apprentice." nbc hates me because they renewed "the apprentice" and i said, i'm not doing it. i'm running for president. i'm going to make the country great again. they actually came up to my office. great people from nbc. they said, please run. they said, we based most of the advertising. i said, i'm going to run and i'm going to make our country great. we're going to do something. i'm hired. you're hired. so, i look at the landscape of our country. i look at where we are going, a look at where we've been. we've had a horrible number of years. we can't beat isis. i watched "the general" on television. how do you think we will do against isis? i don't know. it's going to be tough. general george patton, general douglas macarthur are spinning in their graves as you listen to this. he talked about a hard time. i look at what's going on with the landscape and then i get to meet all the people i've met over the last period of time. i want to tell you, it's been amazing. it's been really amazing. i want to finish up with a couple of little points. one of them is the ford deal. israel -- i love israel, by the way. when i get the call, i say, no, you are going to build in the united states. no, we don't want to do that. i will be called by people but i will not have any of their money, so i don't care. i will call the men and say, here is the story. you are going to charge you -- we're going to charge you 35%. that will be for every car and every part and every truck that comes into the united states. here is what's going to happen. as sure as you are standing or sitting, they are going to come back to me the following day, i would say the following afternoon. i don't need carl icahn, i don't need this 1 -- it's too easy. they will say, mr. president -- i'm going to say, no. within 24 hours they will say, mr. president, what you are doing to us is terrible. we will build in the united states. we will build a plan. 100%. it doesn't help us, when you look at what is going on, when you look at what's going on, where to visco's cloning, so many places are closing, when you look at the kind of money -- nabisco's closing, so many places are closing, when you look at the kind of money -- we don't have anything left. we are running on fumes. when you look at what happens, they are so much sharper, they are so much smarter. we are not going to have a country left. we need to have our borders and we need to make a great deals. the man in the back just shouted, israel. how would you like to be israel right now? they relied on us. they are a voice of sanity. they are great people, and we have a deal that is so bad -- think of the deal. we make a deal, or chief negotiator goes into a bicycle race at 73 years old. he breaks his leg. that was the good part of our deal. i told this last week, i swear to you i will never, ever ride a bicycle, at least in a race, but i will write one anyway -- ride one anwyway. we know all about the 24 day period. the 24 day period, that clock does not start taking for a long time -- ticking for a long time. that could be forever. if they are doing something, believe me by the time we get there -- here is the all-time great. first of all, why are they giving us back our prisoners? -- aren't they giving us back our prisoners? the other day it was determined that iran, is going to do their own policing. they are going to police and they are going to tell us -- we swear we are not building anything. it's so sad. obamacare. interests and lobbyists, the insurance companies love it. we can have such great plans. it would get rid of the artificial lines around every -- i have a huge company. when i negotiate, i get one group. some of the people that owned businesses know what i'm talking about. the insurance companies are so protected, they are making a fortune. we are going to make it so competitive. we are going to get rid of the artificial barriers. you will get such great plans. obamacare -- look at what is happening with your premiums. just take a look at what is happening to the deductibles. they are so high it's impossible. trade -- we're going to fix it. health care -- we're going to fix it. women's health issues -- were're going to fix it. my wife came up to me the other day and she said, it's really sad because people don't understand how you cherish women. i will protect women. it is so important to me. i heard some of the other candidates the other day saying we are not going to fund various women's health issues. i said, that's the end of his election. women don't like that too much, do we agree? he said, we are not going to fund women's health issues. a few hours later he came back and said he misspoke. ok. women's health issues, so important. we are going to end up taking our country -- we are going to make it so strong, so powerful, so loved by people again, so loved, you know? but you see it, is a tremendous lack of spirit. i thought president obama -- he was inexperienced, he never produced a job, lots of other things. i actually thought he would be a great cheerleader for the country when he was elected. and he has turned out to be a great divider. really has. you look at baltimore, you look in ferguson, st. louis last night, over the last week. you look at all the things that are happening. we are sitting on powder kegs. there's no spirit, there's no jobs, there's no anything. i am going to be the greatest jobs president that god ever cr eated. i will tell you. you are going to be so proud red . i oftentimes say, the american dream is dead, but i'm going to make it bigger and stronger and more powerful than ever before. i am going to make this country bigger and stronger and better, and you are going to love it, and you are going to love your president, and we are going to turn this place around and you are going to be so proud. and you know, our whole theme is make america great again. we are going to make america better than it has ever been, and we are going to love doing it, and we are going to have fun doing it. i want to thank everybody. this has been really, really special. thank you very much. thank you.mr. trump: thank you, everybody. wow. thank you. i feel so badly. outside, we have 5000 people and they cannot get in. i feel badly. i want to apologize. we have speakers outside. we have over the 5000 people who cannot get in. does anybody want to leave and give your place to somebody else?... text mr. trump: i had a feeling you might be saying that. it is an honor to be with you. it is very important. we are doing very well. millions of votes ahead of cruz. had 20 or 22, right? and, i said i cannot believe it. i have millions of votes more. i have like millions of votes more. i will tell you something so important. there is something happening, it is like a movement. it is a movement and we are part of the movement. it is not me. i'm a messenger. this is something that is so special and so amazing and it is on the cover of "time" magazine, every newspaper. it is something that maybe has never happened. they are saying it is a phenomena. the message is what we want. we want jobs, we want jobs. we want trade deals that are smart, not stupid deals. wisconsin, wrote down some notes -- it is one of those things. i wrote down some notes and it is like devastating. walker came out today. i wrote down notes about wisconsin. did to him in the race. look at this. by the summer of 2015, wisconsin was facing a $2.2 billion, two-year budget deficit. that is terrible. these are out of books. this is not trump. total state that is $45 billion. maybe somebody will tell me that is wrong. $45 billion is very high. 20,000 fewer people in labor force in wisconsin than seven years ago even though population has grown by 100,000. your population is higher. what he endorse cruz? he is not doing a great job. he comes into his with his motorcycle jacket. the motorcycle guys really like trump. they cannot be possible. on implementat 20%, that cannot be possible. is it 20%? effective or regular? effective unemployment rate at 20%. 800,000 foodstamp recipients. middle-class hit very hard due to loss of manufacturing jobs. these are the facts. you know about this. it goes on and on. wisconsin has lost 15,009000 net jobs to mexico. kasich is running also. he voted for nafta. both of them want tpp> . tpp, both of them want transpacific. that will make nafta look like a baby and wisconsin will be hit so hard. are you a motorcycle guy? i bet. do they love trump? i don't even know. the motorcycle guys love trump. i love the disabled veterans and the veterans. we will take care of our veterans, you know that, right? we went to hilton head, different places. there were hundreds and hundreds of bikers. beautiful bikes. lots of harleys, made in america. beautiful bikes. what is it with them? why do they like me? tell me. again. here we have something that is pretty interesting. i love you, too. you lost 70,000 jobs to china. 70,000 jobs. 100,000 illegal immigrants living in wisconsin. taxpayers are paying tens of millions of dollars. i don't know. what happened with walker -- i will finish off with this. he came up to my office about a year ago. i had been a politician for about eight months. the last thing in my monitor one it tomind i wanted to be was a politician. very little debt, tremendous cash flow. i say that not in a bragging way. i say that because that is the kind of thinking we need. we cannot have china ripping us off at mexico and japan and vietnam. we cannot have it and they are ripping us like they have never ripped anybody before. we are rebuilding china, mexico. those carrier air-conditioners moving to mexico. ford moving to mexico. nabisco, home of the wonderful, formerly wonderful oreo which we don't eat anymore. we don't need anymore. it is called enforced diet. you know what? look, we're losing our jobs. when i see that statistic, you are losing your jobs. when i went after your governor when he decided to run and i said i will be nice to him. he came up to my office and he handed me a plaque because i supported him. i gave him about $50,000. that is pretty good. i like the fact he was always fighting. to a certain extent, i would like to see somebody being able to make a deal without having to go through that mess. i gave him a lot of money. he came up and gave me a plaque. a beautiful picture of something. i never really got to read it. i put it aside. imy girl found it and she said she just found it. a wonderful woman comes up and i said where is it? she found it under a pile of a lot of other plaques. i will bring it. i will try to get it because i will be here the whole week. i will be in wisconsin the whole week. because we are going to do great. the emerson poll came out and i have asked the 8% in new york compared to about 10% -- i have about 78% in new york compared to about 10%. new yorkers are very good. cruz is no good. i think we are going to do great in new york, new jersey. chris christie endorsed me. a good guy. ben carson endorsed me. sirrah palin endorsedsarah palin endorsed me. sheriff joe endorsed me. with evangelicals, i have had so many ministers and pastors endorse me. jerry falwell endorsed me. we have done well with evangelicals. christians, evangelicals, we have done so well. when we went to south carolina, that was going to be cruz's territory except we won in a landslide. thios guy follows me around. you were there. he was going to win that in the landslide. i started talking to people and i started saying the good and the bad and the ugly. i have won just about almost every place with evangelicals. it has been an amazing time. now, i'm here to talk to the people of wisconsin. i have been here before. it is an incredible place but it is a place that has problems. you have a governor that has you convinced it does not have problems. i remember when he was on the campaign trail, i was so nice to him. i'm not going to hit him. i hit jeb instead, right? happen that are positive? it's not with a mouth, is really with the mouse,uth, the heart and the brain. i have a lot of friends that are good with the mouth, but not with the brain. a poll came out, a nationwide poll, it was trump 48, i think cruz was second in the mid-20's. kasich was way down. what happened is they showed the poll. it was an nbc poll. an nbc monkey poll, and it was on the today show. morning joe held it up. 48 is pretty good. i have been at 45% and i have had about seven people. how do you get 45% when you have seven? how do you crack 50%? the poll was good. way ahead of anybody else. they showed hillary clinton. got a bigger problem with e-mails then i think with bernie, to be honest with you. the bigger problem should be that. we will find out how honest our country is. she's got -- they put here poll up. then, they said and then donald trump is winning. that is it. they did not put numbers up. they didn't say i'm doing great. they say that donald trump is winning and they put a slightly negative statistic. wait a minute. they put her numbers up and didn't put mine up. it is so unfair. the press is so dishonest it is unbelievable. and him winning by a lot. i guarantee you one thing, if i was doing poorly, it would be up all morning because they don't like what is happening. i'm self funding my campaign. i'm putting up my own money. pharmaceutical companies. you cannot straighten out this mess. we are in a mess. if you cannot do what you have to do. when millions of dollars are given to cruz and kasich, and millions from different industries, you were not going to be able to say we are going to go against the bank industry to do what is right for the people if the bank industry give you millions of dollars. that is true with hillary. i'm the only one self funding my campaign. what is beautiful is when i was running against jeb in new hampshire. i was in for $2 million and jeb was in for $48 million. i was first and he was close to last. by the way, did jeb endorse anybody get? ddid he endorse? that shows you how important it is. i don't even know. he'll endorse --- when you are in war, you have to fight hard. when i fight, i win. you are going to win. you know that. but, you know, you do pretty serious damage because you want to win fast. a lot of people don't love you after you finish. i don't care about them. winning the debate. he is an ok debator, but he is a bad talker. he waits. ever see, ego sentence after sentence and stops for about three or four seconds and goes again. it looks like we are in the theater. this is the real world. what happens -- thank you. i feel slightly guilty. look, we have a very serious mess on our hands. we have a country that is not protected. a country that is sitting on a big fat bubble that will explode. don't do it after i get in. three days later, it will explode and it will be trump's fault. we are in a big fat, ugly bubble. we have interest rates that are so low that if you are rich -- like me, i can borrow money for any amount. if you are hard-working guy with a great farm or hard-working developer or businessman, you cannot borrow money. think of how bad that is. you can borrow money for nothing practically if you are rich. but if you are rich, you don't need the money. if you are a business person and want to get a loan, you cannot get it. the regulators are running the bank. dodd-frank has been a disaster. of them. so many people from this area have told me regulations, regulatory climate is the worst they have ever seen it. i have a friend who was a farmeis a farmer. it is like a puddle and they consider it a lake. we are going to make our country so great again. we are going to make our country so strong again. our military is going to be so amazing. we will never have to use it. i never wanted to go into iraq. all of these guys think i'm a tough guy so i will be quick with the trigger. i didn't want the trigger. when obama left, he should not have left the way he did. he gave a certain date and the enemy said it cannot be possible. nobody can be that stupid. i actually don't think it hurt that much that the enemy when not believe anybody would be stupid enough to give a date. they pulled back and then you see what happened. they went in with fury. how about the 50 soldiers he sen t a couple of months ago? he sent 50 of our finest. instead of sending them quietly, what does he do? he sends them in, makes a big press conference that we are sending 50 soldiers into iraq, syria. now, these soldiers have a big target on their back. why can't we just keep our mouth shut? why can't we be unpredictable? sound good when you say 50 soldiers. is that good or bad? but then, when you think about it, why do we have to say that? these are extraordinary people. these are our finest and it is a very dangerous mission. why would you tell people that we are sending them in? you keep quiet and let them accomplish something. who knows what has happened, but right now they have a big target on their back. people that we have let go at gitmo have now killed americans. that came out yesterday. is anybody surprised? would anybody be surprised? we are keeping it open. they are sending hundreds of millions to run it. i guarantee you can run it a lot cheaper and you would have a lot of money left over. we will get efficiency in government. we will end obamacare. we will replace it with something so much better and so much less expensive. we are going to get rid of common core. we are going to bring our education local. father. what his father did with liberty university. jerry, to top it off, has taken that to a new place. i was talking -- probably had 50 of the ministers and pastors coming to my office. they are really under tremendous pressure because of that want to have their -- they don'ty want their tax-exempt status taken under way. i said why is it that you folks are that way? why do you allow them? why aren't you more forceful? finally, somebody said we have to be careful with our tax-exempt status. we are going to try to get rid of that. that is really terrible. we are going to try to -- i have said that to a lot of evangelicals, a lot of great christians. it has -- it's sort of means that somebody walking down the street has more power than somebody of our religion, christianity, somebody that is an evangelical. they have more power. they have taken the right of free speech away. i said we would try to get rid of that and i think we will be very successful. how many christians are there? we have men and women. cut it in half and we have a few more women, but we have far more christians than men and women. it is the biggest group of people. we are not allowed, they are not allowed to talk because they are petrified. you saw what was happening with the irs. we are going to try -- usually when i say try, that means i will get it done. hard to counter it because if the whole evangelical, christian sector gets together, nobody can beat them. when i made the statement about muslims, having them in a temporary basis, i took so much heat. now people are saying trump is sort of right about that because they have seen what happened. we're going to turn this country around and we're going to be the smart people. we're not going to be the dummies anymore. we're not going to be where china made last year trade deficit $505 billion, with a b, billion. japan, over $100 billion. mexico, $58 billion. we're going to build a wall, and mexico's going to pay for the wall. ok? nice guy, actually. you notice how nice they are after you've defeated them? i like herb i -- everybody i defeat. but when i went against marco, it was supposed to be a very -- ah, boy. well, he started it, right? just like cruz started the last deal. he started it. but marco came after me very viciously. he wanted to be don rickles, right? and it didn't work. but what happened is, what happened is i won by 20 points. almost 20 points. frankly i wish i would have left about two days earlier. i wanted to stay in florida and campaign. i wish i had devoted two more days to ohio because i almost won in ohio. i would have won ohio but i didn't want to take a chance on leaving my beautiful florida alone. because i love florida. i wanted to win that. so if i would have left a couple days earlier, i think i would have won florida probably. but i'm not going to have anything happen in wisconsin. we have to win. if we -- in the meantime he gets all the establishment support. including your governor. believe me, believe me, they're all establishment. frankly in a way it's worse. because cruz is establishment and yet he's got no relationship with the establishment. he goes and he stands on the floor of the senate for a day and a half and he filibusters and these senators, look, i know, they're tough cookies. i have one of the great people, senator jeff sessions. to have him. used him in his speech. then he comes out and endorses me. but when you think of it, look, out of all of these senators, he has one supporter, who is his friend. his friend. by the way, took him plenty of time to do it. but to stand there and to rant and rave for two days and to show people, you know, you can filibuster, in the meantime, nothing was accomplished. cruz has not accomplished one thing. so he's an insider but it's almost like the man on the street, because he can't get anything done. he disease likes people, he calls people, like, for instance, he said horrible things about the speaker. and, you know, he said, about the speaker? and he said about, separately, mitch mcconnell. he said some terrible things about, how do you get things done when you're calling mitch mcconnell bad names? ok, let's just say bad names. so he's sort of got the worst of all elements. he's an insider totally. but he can get nothing done. he can get nothing done. your new speaker, how do you like paul ryan? how do you like him? you like him? because -- really? all right. well, he's the speaker. he's a nice guy. he called me the other day, he was very nice. but i'm very surprised at this statement. wow. are you all republicans? are you mostly conservatives? commonplace, you know, just a commonsense conservative. so important. a commonsense -- and then somebody told me today that somebody else, i think walker used my term. walker used -- i said, make america great again. i said, make america great again. and i copywrited -- copyrighted the term. then walker was making a speech many months ago and he said, make america great again. because he saw the response i got. the difference is he didn't get any response. to it didn't help. we told him, you can't do that. now i said, a commonsense conservative and today i heard he used the term because the press was up and they interviewed me and they said he's a commonsense conservative. i coined the phrase a few months ago. but that's what i am. i'm a conservative person. i'm very, very conservative on the military. i'm very conservative with other vets and on health care and on lots of things. but -- and i'm actually very conservative on trade. but a lot of people would say, he's not that conservative on trade because he doesn't believe in free trade. actually, i do believe in free trade. but it's got to be good trade for us, right? the got to be smart trade. it can't be where wisconsin's losing thousands and thousands of jobs, where you folks can't get into china but china comes in here like it's swiss cheese, that's what happens. china does not obey the rules. now, i get along great with china. i made a fortune dealing with china. i have two buildings because of china. big ones in new york and one in san francisco. bank of america. that i have in partnership with a great company. and it's because of china. i sell -- i have the biggest -- one of the big leases with one of their big banks, with the biggest bank in the world actually, from china. millions of and millions of conledsows to people from china. i like china. i'm not angry at china. i like them. i think they're leaders are doing a great job for them. but our leaders are doing a bad job for us. same with mexico. i get along great. the hispanics, i love the hispanics. i love the hispanics. but their leaders are killing us on the border and trade. i'm not angry at them. i'm angry at our country and our leadership because it's grossly incompetent and we're going to change it around. and we're going to get the best and we're going to get the finest. thank you very much. i appreciate it. so, whatever you can could to spread the word, i'll be around, i'm going to green bay, i love that team by the way. talk about a great franchise. i love it. and you have a truly great quarterback. i don't know, he's probably endorsing somebody else. but i don't care. he's still a great quarterback. tom brady's a friend of mine. he said you have a great quarterback. that's all i need, right? when tom says he's a great quarterback, that's pretty good. but i really want to win wisconsin. because if we can win wisconsin, we're going to put all the stupidity away. we're going to put these stupid, stupid people that allow -- and i'm talking about basically politicians. in many cases, you know, a lot of times people will see deals that are done and, i mean, take a look at the iran deal. how bad is that? just as a deal. forget about countries. but many times people say deals that the country makes, right, deals, and they'll say, how can our politicians be so stupid? they're not stupid. they've been hit by the lobbyists and the special interests and they make a fortune. they get tremendous campaign contributions. they're not stupid. they're doing it for themselves. again, i'm not doing that. i'm doing it for you, i'm working for you. remember, they're not so stupid like you think. kasich's campaign, and you look, don't forget, cruz said, oh, the banks, the banks, he's going to be robin hood, he's going to be this great guy. and then in his personal financial disclosure form, he forgot to mention that he borrowed about $1 million from the banks, citibank and goldman sachs, he borrowed $1 million at an interest rate that everybody in this room would be proud to have. a very low interest rate. almost no interest. he forgot to announce it on his personal financial disclosure form. he just forgot. he said, oh, i forgot. i forgot. so then he hits the banks. he's controlled by these people, folks. what he did was absolutely wrong. but they're controlled by these people. i'm controlled by you. i'm going to do the right thing for you. i love that. ok. let's go. go ahead. my biker friends. we have to start with them.... text mr. trump: 22 veterans a day commit suicide, that's correct. mr. trump: we're going to take care of our veterans so much. many end up killing themselves waiting to see a doctor. 22 a day. a lot of people don't believe that number. they think the almost like an impossible number. how could it be so bad? the actually -- it could be worse than that. we're going to take care of them from the standpoint, they wait, they wait, then they get bad service. and they wait some more. six, seven, eight days. sometimes they'll get to see the doctor and the doctor says, i can't see you now, i'm going on vacation. you see the corruptness. i just left phoenix. we had 21,000 people, sheriff joe was there, the job he did was incredible. incredible. they had a little protest, right? that protest ended so -- he arrested three people. everyone else scattered. and you have that kind of a sheriff here. you have a tough cookie here. i can tell you. i just met him and i can tell you. but we're going to -- you know, i have a great policy plan and i've gotten a lot of credit for it, it's on donaldjtrump.com. with the veterans, when they're waiting for exorbitant times, even for a little time, they're going to go to the doctor, they're going to go to local doctors or local hospitals, many of the hospitals are dying for business, you know that, they're dying, these hospitals, some of these homs -- hospitals are dying. they're going to get immediate treatment, immediate service, we're going to pate bill. and we're going to save a fortune and they're going to get great s. everybody is in love with it -- great. and everybody is in love with it. that's what's going to happen. we're going to take care of our veterans. if we can't take care of our veterans, we can't take care of anyone. so we're going to take care of our vets. go ahead. one more from my other biker friend here.... text mr. trump: boy, do you look good, though. you look good and tough. i wouldn't want to fight you. do you think i could take new a fight? i don't think so. what do you think? how about we do it right now? that would be great for television. go ahead. but i do have more hair than him. right? go ahead.... text mr. trump: i know, it's terrible. why are you unemployable? mr. trump: ok. i got it. mr. trump: i know that. daycare is a problem. mr. trump: i know. i've heard this many times. mr. trump: here's the problem. our veterans are taking worse -- taken worse care of than illegal immigrants who come into the country illegally. you don't even have to write it down. we're going to do things about it. you know what you're saying, i've heard this so many times before with the daycare and everything else. we are going to take care of our vets.... text mr. trump: by the way, speaking of increase, cruz and kasich want to destroy social security, folks. i want to bring money back into this country. i want to bring jobs into this country. i want to bring tremendous wealth into this country. i want to take our wealth back from china, from mexico, from all of these countries that have our wealth. we're going to save you social security and we're diagnose to save you medicare. they want to get rid of it. remember that.... text right? mr. trump: you could do. i want to not use too many executive orders, folks. executive orders sort of came about more recently. nobody ever heard of an executive order. then all of a sudden obama, because he couldn't get anybody to agree with him, he starts signing them like they're butter. so i want to do away with executive orders for the most part. but look. just do me a favor. stick with me. you're going to be ok. all right? all right? ok? you're going to be ok. i know. what you've said i've heard a hundred times. and the daycare's a huge problem. a huge problem. your wife not working, huge prok. -- problem. she can't. i bet you have a great wife. good wife? better believe it. go ahead.... text mr. trump: we're doing it. we're ending common core. your kids in wisconsin are no longer going to be educated in washington, d.c., by bureaucrats. many of whom, i can't say all, but many of whom don't care for your kids. they couldn't care less. they get big fat salaries. your kids are going to be educated locally. we're terminating common core. will you see something that's magic. and i've seen it. where parents and all of these people, they're all distribute uncle, the aunts, they're all on school boards, they get professionals, they have great principals. you can't see what's going on from washington, d.c. many of the people never even come here. they sit behind a desk in washington, they draw big sal are ri and they're tell -- salaries and they're telling you how to educate your kids. i've seen seen it where the kid graduates and those parents stay on. they love it, because their child went through the system. they love it. and they become so good at it. that's what's going to happen. we're one of the worst in the world in education. we're going to be one of the better ones. not necessarily, you know, i don't know we're going to be sweden, norway, denmark and china. but we're going to come very close.... text mr. trump: discipline in school . do you have a problem with discipline? you're from where?... text mr. trump: oh, well that's interesting, ok. we have to get discipline back in the country. forgot about school. with my campaign -- he's a good guy. corey. by the way, the easiest thing, corey, you're fired. i can't do that. can't do it. so fortunately i have a taping system. i'm rich. so i have this woman who complained, she was talking about maybe being thrown to the floor. all this. then we saw the tapes. did anybody see the tape? what did you think? right? nothing. women -- what did you think?... text was nothing wrong. mr. trump: her face stayed the same. if somebody squeezed your arm or did something really bad, don't forget, initially she said, thrown to the floor. but if somebody squeezed your arm or hurt you, wouldn't you start screaming or something? did you see any change in her face?... text nothing. mr. trump: it's horrible. it's horrible. honestly, it's horrible. and the best thing i could do is -- but i can't destroy a man. i'd destroy him. he has a beautiful wife and children. i'm not going to destroy man for that. when i saw that at the tape, at first i said, this is terrible. then i saw the tape. it's my tape. i'm the one that has a tape. it's on the ceiling of this incredible club in jupiter, florida. and we're all leaving. and we have a press conference. right? and the press conference lasted a long time. 45 minutes, so that was enough. i'm leaving with a whole big gang of people. people pushing left and right. left and right. and all of a sudden she bolts into the picture. she grabs me or hits me on the arm. in fact, i'm like this with my arm up. and then he goes by and, i mean, maybe he touched her a little bit. but it was almost like he was trying to keep her off me, right? because she talked about falling. now, after -- i must tell you, her statement changed big league. because she said, go to the ground, you know, all this. i could read it to you. does anybody want to hear it? i want to be accurate. because i like the press to treat me. so before she knew she was on tape, she said, i was jolted backwards. was she jolted backwards? i mean, if she was, her face stayed the same. i was jolted backwards. someone grabbed me tightly by the arm. and yanked me down. campaign managers aren't supposed to forcefully throw reporters to the ground. except she never went to the ground. she never even came -- she never even flinched. if somebody grabs you, even one of the guys, even the biningers, if somebody grabs even a biker, or punches you a little bit, you're off, right? the toughest guy, the toughest woman, look at her face. it's zero. they're going to destroy a man's life? and then i have cruz saying, oh, that was a terrible thing. that was a terrible thing. let me tell you something, folks. if i win, if i lose, i didn't need to do this. i'm doing this because i just had a beautiful grandchild. i'm very proud. my eighth. i'm doing this all for them. i didn't need to do this. this is not -- i had no idea, you know, maybe none of us did. i had no idea the message was going to get across. it's a message of competent. it's a -- competence. it really is. it's a message of common sense and it's a message of competence. i had no idea that we have millions of more votes than we had when we had that stiff mitt romney, a total stiff, running. who by the way, he's a dope. he's not a smart person. i'll tell you right now. let me tell but him. that was an election that he should have won and he lost. and he should just go away and let the big boys do it now. have been won. i tell you what, i helped john mccain, and at that time, honestly, that was a tough deal for him. the world was sort of collapsing. that was a tough one. but he lost. and i helped mitt romney a lot and he lost. and i said, this time, we're going to do it ourselves. we're going to win. we're going to win. so just remember that. we're going to win because of wisconsin. a couple more questions. is how about a woman. go ahead, go ahead. great.... text mr. trump: right. she's so smart, i don't want them to know. i don't want to tell putin what i'm thinking. she's so smart. what you just said -- what does that say? what about -- don't worry about ukraine. they're going to be type of. just don't ask me why. this world of politics. mr. trump, you said -- don't forget, i'm the one who said take the oil. i was right. they didn't. you know who has the oil right now? isis has the oil. you know that libya, isis has all that oil from gaddafi. all of that big oil from gaddafi. i took it. we're like a bunch of dummies. why aren't we creating a nice big circle so they can't get the oil out? why aren't we taking that oil back? look, look, i'm the one that says, though, i don't want to say everything. if i win, i have a good chance of winning, i'm the frontrunner by a lot. i want to go in there, i want to knock the hell out of isis. i don't want to tell all -- i really mean this. i don't want to tell everybody in this room, and look at all the cameras that are going now. i don't want to tell the world what i'm going to do. because they're watching. just let me do it, folks. i will do it, you'll be so happy. you don't have to know the details. ok? let me do it. i use the word before, we have to be a little bit unpredictable. we can't say, well, we're going to go and take on march 14, and then we're going to hit them from the front, and then we're going to hit them from the back. obama did that eight months action with one of the cities. he said, we're going in next week. look, folks, folks, folks, you know, you have to trust -- there has to be some trust, right? do you trust? we've got to stop the stupid. that's why i really think your question is so great. i don't want to hear how you're going to do it, mr. trump, just do it. i'll do it. ok? i love that. that woman. that woman. thank you, honey. thank you. yes, go ahead.... text mr. trump: i can see why. mr. trump: i remember that. i remember that. mr. trump: such a wonderful, beautiful woman. just an amazing woman. are you coming along ok? applause] mr. trump: that's great. mr. trump: we're going to watch him. tanner, watch him. we're going to be watching your boy, ok? but you're going to hopefully be around. you're not going to have to have anybody watching. we'll be helping you.... text thank you enough. mr. trump: that's so nice. thank you, honey. thank you. i'm sorry. i have to go down and say hello. is that ok? that's a great woman. great mother. i remember that. and it's heartbreaking. but something beautiful's going to happen. you watch. something beautiful is going to happen. folks, i just want to say, i'd almost like to leave it on that. because we can't top that. that is so amazing. thank you. thank you. and something really great is going to happen out of that. you watch. but it sort of tells me, when i first did this people said, oh, it will cost a lot. forgetting about the campaign. that's peanuts by comparison. i've spent tens of millions of dollars. the big thing i lost, certain businesses, i owned the miss universe pageant. i bought it inexpensively 15 years ago. because of the fact that they thought i was against this one or that one, i had a hard time with television. the good news is i sold it for a wonderful -- i was very happy, ok, with that. but i didn't want to sell it. but i sold it. i built it to really a very good company. we did a great job with that company. miss universe, miss u.s.a., miss teen u.s.a. other businesses, i sort of -- like the shirts and ties with macy's. macy's was unbelievable -- unbelievably disloyal because of illegal immigration. they ended the shirt size -- who cares. it's not a big deal. but i'm doing something -- nobody else is giving up what i'm giving. when cruz runs he runs. if he wins, great, if he loses, great. it's him. he's a politician. they just run, they win, they lose, who knows. but these guys run for office. that's all they do. i've always heard that if you're a very successful person, you can't run for office especially for president. you can't run for president. i can see it. i have so much false press about me. things that are so false, you know, i saw the other day on television, there were like 50 -- did you see it, 56,000 negative ads on me. 56,000. in fact, in florida, i own dur al, in florida, we had the tournament there two weeks ago. adam scott, the great adam scott. great golfer. he was winning. in between shots i told you this after the victory speech, they've had commercials and they were all about trump. negative. horrible, commegtive -- negative commercials. mostly false. but it came out the other day, i think it said $68 million, $55 -- 55,000 negative ads. negative ads. and when i was running in florida, i said, how is it possible to win? with all of this, i knew it, you couldn't turn -- in florida, where i was, you couldn't turn on the television without seeing trump commercials. sometimes four, five in a row. and they were horrendous. done by very, very bad people. very bad, evil people. and i said, how is it possible to win? and god helped me. honestly. because... textmr. trump: thank you, everybody. this is so exciting. we will do questions. we are doing really well. iowa has been amazing. we are doing so well and i love this place. i'm back here all the time and i will be here a lot in january. give him the caucus. no, you are going to like me and we are going to do a great job for you. most importantly, we will get to that office and do the right thing. we're going to do the right thing. so, a few things. so much has happened. when we first came out, we were all talking together and we were talking border security which we're doing so great with. we're going to build a wall. mexico will pay for the wall. we all know that. we will have security. the drugs will stop. people will come into the country but come in and be legal. that is the way. that is the way. it affects iowa so much. we are talking about repealing obamacare. it will be replaced. and i will be working very hard. by 2017, instead, you are not getting the people signed up. there has been a lot of talk about it. obamacare is dead. we will come up with something that will be so good, so much better. premiums are going through the roof. deductibles or so iare so high, that unless you were close to death, i don't think you'd be able to use it. we will take care of that. by the way, we have a lot of good people. nobody is really -- we have the people. it is so important. it is another form of let's stay away from opec and the middle east stuff. it is so important. actually, what i don't understand, because the one guy that is doing pretty good with me in iowa is ted cruz. everything i say, he agrees with. no matter what i say. he agrees. with the ethanol, he has to come a long way because he is for the oil. i understand oil pay some a lot of money. the oil companies give him a lot of money. so, i'm with you. i'm with everybody. look, i'm self funding. i have no oil company, no special interest. i have no lobbyists that want me. they are representing countries that are ripping off the country. they are representing companies that are ripping off the country. i am working for you. we will make america so great again. trade. nbabisco is moving there. ford is moving there. they took the big plant away from tennessee, a great state. we will do -- we will get it. we will do what we have to do, ok? thank you. look at that group over there. i talk about that a lot. the fact is that about 2.5 weeks ago in paris, i'm speaking a little differently now. i can take care of china in my back pocket. that is easy for me. that is what i do. sounds better. we will take care of that. what happened is with paris, it is a different mindset. when the polls came out last week, my numbers went way up because people feel more secure with me. yeah, really. 's done. that's it. that is the end. i will not go over all the different things because maybe you will change your mind. they will say that is it. it is over. and then they come and say, sir, your poll numbers went up nine points this week. they did? people. they love me, i think, i hope. i think. but, i have a great family. i built a great business. thank you. who is that person? i love that person. stand up. i love that person. thank you, darling. i appreciate it. there is such spirit no matter where i go. we go to dallas, we have thousands of people. 35,000 people in alabama. 20,000 people in oklahoma. this is supposed to be like a record. it is big, yet it feels intimate. we are going to start taking questions. i just want to say -- i changed a couple of weeks ago. when i saw paris, i changed. and a big part of what i'm doing now is safety and security and smartness and smartness. go. you will destabilize the middle east. the fact is right now we have to do things because we have some really, really sick the degenerates. and the press -- look at all the cameras going. nobody else has cameras like this. 100 times i make a speech, nobody cares. look at this. excellent. did you have many people there? i said what? she said they never leave your face. i figured the cameras were screwed up where you could not move it. anytime there is a protester, and they could be in the back corner of the room, the cameras swoop over there. it is true. it is true. computers. in the all days, everything was better. the car seats -- he would sit in your car, you want to move forward or back, you press a button. now you have to open up things and press a computer. the same thing with cameras. i didn't think they moved. i figured they were fixed. then, i saw a protester and those cameras were bent in positions like you would not have believed possible. they are very dishonest people. not all of them, but most of them. the press is -- you have one of the most dishonest in your backyard. "the des moines register" is the worst. always do badly. i believe -- i'm only doing this so they don't sue me -- i hope they do because they don't have enough money to sue me. i believe, and i may be wrong, i will say i'm sure i'm wrong, but it is my opinion that they don't do it properly. because they pull like 300 to 400 people, but i believe -- if they lose 20 people. forget that one. i don't know that they do that. do you do that? every time i have a "ddes moines register" poll, i do poorly. we had a great poll coming from cnn where we are leading by 13 points in iowa. -- just watch. trump disappears. i think we will do so well. i think we will actually do better. we are leading in most of the polls. we are leading in every poll, except iowa, there was one poll. monmouth, what the hell is that? explain it. i don't like it because they'll we treat me badly also. i only like polls that treat me well, right? but, we are doing so well. nationwide, we are leading every poll by tremendous. we had one in georgia -- 44%. think of that. that is 44% with 15 people. i'd take 44% if we had three people. but, 44%. cbs came out, as you know, "the new york times" a few days ago -- 35%. we are killing everybody in every poll. when des moines comes out, i 'm sure it will be negative. we are going to win. honestly, iowa is so important to me. i could say let's not -- i'm an evangelical, a christian, a presbyterian. i don't know if you saw this. he cannot with statements about -- came out with statements about trump. stand up. is that right? he was so incredible. franklin graham, the son of billy graham. billy graham was unbelievable. they were incredible. so, i think we will do -- we are doing really well with evangelicals. by the way, i do like ted cruz, but not a lot of evangelicals, out of cuba -- come out of cuba. not a lot come out. i like him nevertheless. we are doing great with evangelicals. we are doing great with the tea party. leading with the tea party. everybody. it is very important to me to win iowa. i could put less pressure on myself and i could say i don't care about iowa, but i do care. i do care so much about it. that is why am here all the time. then lies happen. they lie so much. the people of iowa can't be that stupid. the people of the country -- i'm trying to make a point. i said the people of the country cannot be that stupid. they cut the country out. iowa, i love you people. remember that. guy i was talking about was actually a very good guide, but i will say this, we want to win iowa so bad. if i win, i think we run the table. i think we run the table. this crazy newspaper up there. the weirdest deal i have ever seen. you know, the paper that was in his state called up and said are you sure about that? nobody ever called us. can't believe it. we could go into that but it is not relevant. we are leading new hampshire big. we are leading in south carolina, like monstrous numbers. we are leading nevada, texas. we are leading everywhere. we are leading big in florida. you have rubio, nice guy -- but, when the people put you in position to be a senator, you have to go vote. you cannot be the number one person who does not vote in the senate. you have to say hey, i want to go and vote. he should stay there a little longer. go in vote, create a nice record. but, i don't know. how is he doing in iowa? not too good. not good. it seems like a two-person race right now. it is an important race to me. with all of that, if we win iowa, and a lot of people say we win virtually every state in the union and it is over quickly. establishment? they have a problem. it is sort of like the fighters. the great champions. sometimes they go to the hometown of the guy they are fighting and they will say we never want to get a decision, we go for the knockout. because you get a lot of bad positions. they go into a hometown to fight and it is a decision. they say we are in a problem. they lose the fight that they won. the only way they win the fight definitely, knockout. if we win iowa, think we will win everything after that. it will show how important it is. i will pledge of this to iowa even if i lose. i don't think i have ever said that in my life. but, if we go and win, iowa is staying where it is in the chain. it is not moving. very angry at me. is she incredible? them. come here, sam. look at him. big sam. come here. are we going to win? of iowa. falling when he is leaving. beautiful. thank you, sam. these are great people. i will be here that night. that week and a couple of weeks before. i will watch you. i will not give you any chance that we lose this. let's take a few questions. we will have a little fun. we did a big interview with cnn before this. with hillary missing today -- she was two hours late. did you hear? hillary. you know why? i don't know why. she was a couple of hours late and everybody left. you know what happened? she was sleeping. she could not get out of bed. she was sleeping is right. let's take some questions.... text mr. trump: hi. mr. trump: i'm glad you asked me that question. you have been paying into social security and medicare, by the way. medicare does work. there is tremendous waste, fraud and abuse. we will not cut your social security and your medicare. we will take the jobs back from all the countries that are ripping us off. we will become a wealthy country again and save you social security. think of it -- i cannot believe this number, but who was the mandatory the number? over 6 million people -- i cannot believe it -- are age 112 and over and getting social security. who is the man that told me that? i heard it, i read it. 6 million people are getting social security, meeting someone else is picking it up. who is that man? he is over there someplace. ok. 6 million people more. he came up to me tonight. it is an amazing statistic. we will have to check it. can you imagine -- we know there may be one million but not 6 million. anybody in this room 112 or over? if they are, the want to shake your hand -- i want to shake your hand. 6 million people over 112 years old picking up social security. there is tremendous waste. what we are going to do is save medicare, save social security. we are not going to raise the age and do all the things that everybody else is talking about doing. they are all talking about doing it. you don't have to. we are going to bring our jobs back. we will make the economy incredible again. my tax proposal which is in great detail in terms of policy and has gotten tremendous reviews from a lot of people. but, we are going to cut taxes tremendously for the middle class and businesses, because the middle class, our middle-class is being decimated. sue, when that happens, you will see an economy that takes off. we will get rid of a lot of that debt. we are $19 trillion going to $21 trillion right now. if you go back eight or nine years, trillion was not a word anybody knew and now it is routine. we are going to save your social security without cuts. we will make ourselves rich again. a woman said to me in new hampshire, she said, i'm voting for you, i love you, but it is very crude when you say you will make the country which again. i said i know it sounds that, but many things i say are crude. we cannot make our country great again unless we make our country rich again. we cannot let everybody in the world rip us off. george washington bridge. maybe i should not mention that one particularly. bigger than the george washington bridge. only a few people got that. they have bridges going up. we have rebuilt china. they have taken our jobs, faith, manufacturing. they have taken our money. not going to happen anymore, folks. not going to happen. guys like carl icahn. he calls me saying he wants to help. we are not going to use special interests. we use donors to negotiate with china because he gave some guy, whoever it might be -- again, i'm the only one cell funding my campaign. -- self funding my campaign. when these guys give money to politicians, to a large extent, they own those politicians. they will do whatever the hell the special interests and donors want. social security, we are saving it. medicare, we are saving it. we are going to make her country rich. thank you, sweetheart.... text mr. trump: hi. mr. trump: am i good with the veterans? very much so. mr. trump: we are leading with the veterans by like -- forget it. mr. trump: yes, it is called -- a good question. yeah, it is called the statute of limitations, right? it is a six-year statute. maybe five. yeah, you have to look at it. hillary clinton -- you know the story. it is a crime. she committed a crime. now, perhaps, perhaps -- we have to have a fair justice department. and perhaps jeff will have some really good attorney general that will say -- look, we want to be fair with everybody, including hillary clinton, but she committed a crime. she should not be allowed to run. she is being protected. i have little doubt they will find anything, but they have already found it. when you watch television, you have these big scholars, lawyers -- yes, she violated sections oh and so and so. many manyny, many laws. you mentioned the general. his life was over destroyed over nothing. i think she will be their nominee. the only question is if she will be allowed to run. she is being protected by the democrats, by the president. why do you think she is going along with these insane policies of his? she goes along with everything. honestly in fairness to her, i don't think she believes it. but i think she is afraid he is going to say, i don't like her anymore. i will get somebody else. i'm telling you. so, the question of statute of limitations -- it is a five-year statute of limitations. she has a problem. in one way, she is running for her life because i know one thing -- if she wins, that is the end of that. if she loses, she could have a serious problem. another question, please.... text mr. trump: hi. mr. trump: it is always exciting. single person always want to be right in line with the camera. stands up, he is gone in a couple of minutes. tomorrow, the headlines will be protests. we have like 2000 people here. the headline will be this -- wait, this person. -- i have had 20,000 people. not even a murmur, just love. every once in a while, you have somebody stand up. every single time it turns out to be a big story. it is a shame. that is the press also.... text mr. trump: we will probably have another one stand up at some point. mr. trump: i said at the beginning we will build a wall. it is going to be a real wall. not going to be -- you see that feeling? -- ceiling. that is nothing compared to the wall. we can build it, we can build it right. it will be strong and powerful and as beautiful as a wall could look. it has to be beautiful because someday they will name it the trump wall. they could not get environmental impact statements. china is building in the south china sea massive military bases. why? they are not supposed to. they have no respect for obama, our country. they are not supposed to be doing this. we can get them to stop by saying we will not do business with you anymore. we don't have to go to war. it is economics. the whole country would collapse in two seconds. we have such power and we don't know it. they are building massive -- now, they have little islands. they but theput the biggest excavators. i said to a friend of mine from china, very rich and successful -- he paid me a fortune so i happen to like him. i said jokingly, how long did it take them to build these massive violence? islands. ? how long did it take them to get the environmental impact statement? he said nothing. they said they will build there and they were digging two seconds later. we have a problem -- i'm a big believer in clean air and clean water. i'm a big believer. i have gotten so many awards for the environment. when you look at how we're impinged -- the wall was stopped because they could not get an environmental impact statement. among other things. there was probably a snail or turtle or snake or something. you are ruining the habitat of a rattlesnake. i don't know. they actually have a lot of people, people that would now be against it, but they wanted to build a wall years ago. i said bomb the oil. i've been saying that for years. now they are. one of the reasons that we did not bomb the oil, obama did not want to hurt the environment. i heard that and i thought somebody was kidding. i thought a comedian was saying that. it turned out to be true. he didn't want it going into the atmosphere. this is the way we fight today. i'm telling you, we are being led by stupid people. we are being le by stupid d by stupid people. i didn't want to go into iraq, but once we were there -- we should not have been there, but we left the wrong way. first of all, we have a president who told him a date. it was like 18 months later. they said wow, don't believe it. they don't want to be killed. the enemy said they would leave on a certain date? the pulled back and then now you see what happened. it is a disaster and iran is taking over iraq. when we sent 50 soldiers weeks ago and the president announces we are sending 50 soldiers. he thinks it is a good press announcement. it is not. 50 soldiers is not a lot even if they are elite. those 50 soldiers, because of that announcement, have a target on their heart. why does he have to say that? why can't he let 50 soldiers go there quietly? stealth. why can't he just do that? looking for them. we have people that don't know what they are doing. we still have general douglas macarthur, general george patton -- these were real people. a talk show. he said -- this is serious. they are good men, but you have to lead these men. the generals, you have to have power over them. he said we are in the worst shape in terms of preparedness that we have been in for decades . this is the time where we have to be in the best shape because the world wants to kill us. they said we are in the worship we have been in many decades -- worst shape we have been in many decades. he should not be saying that because you are telling the enemy that. the enemy feels emboldened, right? we should not be saying it. one thing i will do -- i will build the military so big and so strong and so powerful that -- so powerful -- right now. it is the absolute cheapest thing you can do. ok, come on.... text mr. trump: hi. mr. trump: you are right. i'm a big second amendment person, by the way. my son buys weapons from him. my son and i are members of the nra. come here. the guns. what is the name intercompany -- name of your company?... text mr. trump: you have a great company. this is long before i was ever thinking about doing this, right? mr. trump: they make you a lot of money? i hope they negotiated a little bit. it is a great company. thank you. be careful. tremendous pressure to get rid of the guns, the magazines, the bullets. i will the three bullets in every magazine, then 12 and then 23. i don't think the bad guys will say i don't want to break the law, but i will put three bullets in. these people. i have arguments with them all the time. i'm a practical guy. if i didn't believe it, i could not say it. in france or in california -- i have permission to carry which is a big thing in new york. i have a license to carry. but, in france or california or all these places we have seen shooters, if instead of having hundreds like in france, hundreds of people in that room -- paris as the toughest gun laws in the world. france has the toughest gun laws in the world. nobody has guns except the bad guys. they walked in with the worst, toughest, best best weaponry you can have and they said over here, boom. over here, boom. they kill 128 but many more are dying right now. they are in terrible shape in the hospitals. they wiped the place out and they could have stayed there longer. you have those two sleaze bags from california, the married couple. a young married couple did the shooting. they are not a young married couple. they are the worst. they are sleaze. had a gun. look at this guy right here. stand up. how would you have done if you had a gun? would you fire back a little bit? they would have been in trouble. believe me. that guy. you have no gun. don't you think they would have been better? they lose the argument, but they never change their mind. we have to fight for the second amendment. it is so simple. it's so simple. you always know the bad ones will have the guns and have it more so than ever before so we will protect the second amendment if i'm president. everybody. and happy holidays. i have a lot of friends that aren't christian. they like christmas. everybody likes christmas. it is politically incorrect to say merry christmas anymore. when i'm president, merry christmas, happy holidays, enjoy yourselves. we are going to say merry christmas again. we are going to bring our country, bring that spirit back. go ahead.... text mr. trump: he is a good guy. supreme court? mr. trump: that second is interesting. i like ted cruz a lot. he is doing well, i'm doing well. it is not a contest between the two of us. i do like am. him. i would say we would certainly have things in mind for ted. he is someone i can certainly say that for. he put out a tweet tonight and said donald trump is terrific. that is a nice word. other candidates are not exactly saying that about me. will you say hello to phyllis for me? she is an amazing woman.... text mr. trump: great question. the super pacs are horrible. i have had many set up for me from people i do not know. some people called it the art of the deal pac. i started going around and see the corruption with the super pacs, where they are stuffed with money. people that put the money in our dealing with candidates. the whole thing is wrong. i see it. bush has $125 million. if he had $2 billion, it would not make any difference, ok? $2 million, $7 million -- you know what happens. some of the super pacs are actually running the campaign. another thing that is interesting -- one of the super pacs has $6 million. of the $6 million -- this was reported on the front page of the "los angeles times" -- one of the candidates which i will not mention the name. of the $6 million, after all of the bloodsuckers took their cuts, the fundraisers, they had $140,000 left for the campaign. that is better than being a real estate broker. i would rather do that than sell houses. they had $140,000 left. it was in the newspaper. i think i believe it. i have seen it. the romney campaign -- the guy made tens of millions of dollars raising money for romney. you give them money and they get a cut. our laws are so corrupt. our campaign-finance... text laws mr. trump: i don't necessarily want to stop people from giving, because i think that is a good thing. but you have to get away from the super pac's. what you have to have his people have to know who it is, so you have to open up the process and let people know -- if they want to give $1 million, then they can, but you must know who it is. that puts a little pressure on guys like brad, who raises hundreds of millions of dollars. the concept of the super pac, it is no good. it is no good. it is a very dangerous, terrible thing. we will change our laws because you really have no choice. it is so out of control. it is so terrible. the papers that are in this room tonight should look at this, there is so little money left over for the candidate, that is one of the reasons i'm so happy that i'm doing my own. we actually sent legal letters to around eight or nine super pac's. first of all, i'm sure that out of some of them, they sold the money. send i have no money and sets up a donald trump something super pac. he sets it up. all of a sudden he has two main dollars. people send him money. how much of that money do you think he is to use to do what he is supposed to be doing? that is common sense. maybe all of it. but, i doubt it. so we sent legal notices to everyone that we could find having to do with donald trump. we do not want their money. we said, don't do it. we don't want it. ideally, give the money back to the people that gave it to you. but the super pac concept is correct and it is terrible and it should be ended. we will go to new campaign-finance laws that will be terrific. ok? thank you. of my knowledge, there is a lot of oil in texas. he gets a lot of money from the oil companies and he is told -- totally against ethanol and everything else that you are talking about. i am not. i'm totally in favor. it is a big industry here. problems. i was here through weeks ago with a group -- any of the people here that were at that meeting? they were such amazing people, right? stand up. we had a good meeting, right? i learned so much about it. i was in favor of it even before. that is correct, either member you very well. how could you forget? it was amazing. looking at the plants. also, beyond even the fuel capacities which we want to create as much as we can, tremendous numbers of jobs in iowa. i say to myself, if ted cruz is against ethanol, how does he win in iowa? that is very anti-iowa. i don't know how he wins in iowa. thank you. mr. trump: sometimes purposefully though. mr. trump: wow, thank you. thank you. oh no, here it comes. after midway through, i really appreciate it. come on over here. get under there. that's great. that assessing nice question, thank you. come here. don't fall. i gave the range of $50,000 to the republican governors association. i gave tremendous amounts of money away. i was like the fair-haired boy. once i said i was running, they said what? you're not supposed to run. then i ran against all of these senators and governors and everyone said, well, i don't know. my ways that, if you run, you are going to win. she understands the love people and people love me. she said -- you have to actually go and run. you have to announce that you are running. because, nobody will believe that you are running. i did not want to announce because i did not want to announce and then have things not work out and be like some of these guys were there at zero. many of them are at zero. finally i said, we are going to do it. there were too many things that i watched on television with our president and the decisions that are made. we get this horrible, dirty, rotten trader -- traitor, and they get five killers that they have wanted for nine years. the worst killers. they are all back on the battlefield. some a decision. iran deal. how bad is that? they self inspect? ok, we are not building. they promise they're not building nuclear weapons. that's ok. we give them $150 billion and we do not even get our prisoners back? the whole thing is crazy. i saw this. and i said to my wife, i don't know if i will do well or not. who knows? is a risky thing. i have always heard that if you are successful person you cannot run for office, especially president. i see it all the time. the people go after me. i don't even care at this point. i say, we have to do it. i looked at it the last time with mitt romney and i did not do it and i probably should have, because you let us down. look, he let us down. we had a failed president. he was a failed president. just as bad as he is now. it is true. why are you not doing a? he just did not do it. so he lost the election. i backed john mccain and he lost. i backed mitt romney and he lost. this time i said, i'm doing it myself. we're going to win. there are people who are used to giving donations and having control. they are people that may call me, i will treat them with respect, but i will not be doing bad things if it is bad for the country. i will not let ford will they plant in mexico if i can keep it in michigan. of these companies -- i am all for free trade and i think it is great. i am for it. it has to be smart trade. i will not let them move to mexico and sell things without tax or anything. we lose our jobs and our factories and they go over here and make it and we let them come through. how does that help us, folks? i went to the best business school in the world, believe me, it does not help us. trust me. we will not make is like that anymore. we can't. we own 19 train dollars. the establishment is not ever probably -- in the end, if this country starts humming even the establishment, they will say it is a good thing. they will be beneficiaries also. we have a real establishment and they have never seen this happen before. a writer called up and said -- one of the top journalists to my way of thinking, certainly in the country and beyond, and he said, mr. trump, how does it feel? and i said how does what feel? how does it feel, what you have done has never, ever been done before? i said, what have i done? he says you have dominated the summer of donald trump. now they call it the autumn of donald trump. hopefully they call it the spring of donald trump. i want the next autumn of donald trump. talking about, i have not done anything. friendly, if i don't win, i consider this to be a total waste of time. i'll be honest with you. as much as i like eating with you, i want people to do anything. he says, no you have one, even if you don't win. i said no, i don't win. if i do not win, i have wasted my time. the point is, the establishment cannot believe it. they have never seen a happen before. i was on the cover of time magazine four weeks ago or five weeks ago. time magazine was going to pick the person of the year. everybody, even my enemies said that donald trump is going to win. i said, i want win. they said why? i said i was. just like i should have gotten the emmy for the apprentice the first three years. i was nominated and i should have. and i said i will never win. because i'm not hollywood establishment. and with time magazine, i said, -- o'reilly is a great guy. he did an editorial at the end of the show saying, nobody has done more than donald trump. he should have one. i probably should have, in all fairness. but he said, nobody has done more -- taken over -- what we have done has been amazing. it is not just me, it is all of us. from dallas and mobile and oklahoma. all of us. because the spirit -- bill o'reilly had a whole big thing. the other shows, where they said, donald trump, what do you think? well, angela merkel got it. what did she do? she has destroyed -- she is in the process of destroying germany. with the migration. we have to help the people at the migration. we have to create a safe zone someplace in syria. i do not want them coming into this country. i don't want them. we don't know who they are. forged passports. you heard about that. so, we do not know. the bottom line on that is it is such an interesting question. you will know in about a month or two whether or not the establishment has treated me fairly. but the only thing that i can say is this, if i win iowa, i think it is over. i have said before. because, i think if i win iowa, new hampshire is amazing, people are amazing, you would love the people and they would love you. you have everybody. the whole country is in love. i call it the noisy majority. it is no longer a silent majority. it is the noisy majority. matter, they can do anything. i don't care about the establishment. they can't do anything. the only way they can do it is if i'm a little bit short. if i'm to vote short i have a problem. i will have to go in that convention and deal with all of these bloodsucker politicians and they will make their deals and i will have all of the money guys around and they will be in the back room making deals. but, if i get the number of delegates, there is not a thing that they can do. i will end up doing fine with the establishment. again, i was a member of the establishment six months ago. that was a nice question and i appreciated, thank you. such a believer in education. i had an uncle was a professor at m.i.t.. he was a brilliant guy. in fact, i just retweeted an article about him today. you have to read it. when i see somebody like jeb bush -- i will tell you one thing i respect, he did not change his views. he knew he was going to get killed on this issue and i respect that to a certain extent. but, it is so wrong. common core is a total disaster. we have people -- should be educated in iowa and new hampshire and all of the different places that we go to. it is ridiculous. i go around and i see the principles -- i have seen so many students and teachers and professors and principles and i have seen some of the people. even in iowa, i have seen some of the love that these parents give to those schools. this is real love. these are smart people. these are people that are not working for a paycheck. these are incredible people and i have seen -- member this -- our educational system is a mess. we spend more money per pupil as a government than any other country in the world and we are in 20th place. i mean, like double what anyone else has. i want to bring education back to the local areas. you will have parents and you will have unbelievably talented people and they love their kids and they want their kids to be well educated because it is so important. and you'll be very happy with it, ok? thank you. go ahead. energy? mr. trump: you people do it. i have gotten to know you really well. you people do it. we are backing you 100%. the job and the spirit that you all have, you are always perfectly i tired with your green, we are backing you 100%. you do a phenomenal job. there should be more people like you in this country. the whole grid is a disaster. the whole country. the infrastructure of our country is falling apart. and nobody can build like me. that is what i do, i build. i am building on pennsylvania avenue, a big, tremendous hotel. that i got from the government of the united states. from the obama administration, a couple of years ago. we have the best plan. the gsa is terrific. they're very talented people. we are under budget and ahead of schedule. that is what we do. when you see these things, where they are building a bridge and it will cost a billion dollars and then across $12 billion -- how about when they built the hospital that cost $3 billion. i look at it and i can tell you how much it will cost. i say, $250 million, no sir, $3 billion. $3 billion? do you think somebody got rich on that when? we are going to stop all of this debt. we are going to make our country so strong and so wonderful. we love it anyway. but it is so sad to see what is happening. it is so sad. and we are going to change it around. are we all finish with those questions?... text mr. trump: your planner doesn't let up. she is brutal. corey, she is brutal. she did a good job on the apprentice though. mr. trump: i'll tell you, and there is another special person who did a great job on the apprentice great shawn johnson. she is another champion. she is another one. and she is an incredible young woman. she is getting married. she is fantastic. wherever she may be, say hello. go ahead.... text a living wage. mr. trump: that is true. we have such a problem and the biggest problem i have relates to education. the hardest thing that you get is when you go around and you see students and somebody students come out and here's and they always want to talk about the loans. student loans. and they are going through nice colleges and their good student to work hard to could be really top in their class. and they get on the say, mr. trump, we have no jobs. we can't get jobs. they can get jobs. we are to bring our jobs back from china. we're going to bring our jobs back from all of these places overseas that has stolen our jobs. we will bring our jobs back from south america and will bring them back from mexico. we will have jobs again, believe me. we will be manufacturers again. we will start making apple computers in this country. what the hell good to== does it do to make them in china? we are going to bring our jobs back. ladies and this has been a lot of fun. this is the first arrived in this kind of a thing, and it has been amazing. yes?... text mr. trump: thank you. thank you. we love the military. thank you. iowa is so important to me and the relationship that i developed here have been amazing. we are going to make our country great again and we're going to make our country safe again. thank you all for being here. thank you. we've got the right to do it there is no way will lose it this is our life, ... textmr. trump: you know, it is very interesting -- and everybody wants to come here. they do not have this kind of a crowd, but that is ok. i will say this, when jerry was saying nice things about other people, this was very smart and this one's get in this one scud and trump reminds me of my father, i said, that is the best compliment of all. you should be very proud to be here. you're going to have amazing futures. we had a debate recently and the debate -- watch the debate? everybody? a very political place, ok? it was an amazing evening for me. we did fine. we did well. people's came out over that and they keep going up. i will not go over that. somebody said, why do you always discuss the pool? he is in seventh place, i am in first place. i said, when you are in first place you discussed goals. it is true. so many things have happened and now they keep coming out and we go up and up and up. we had 32% last week. people are dropping out rapidly. when you are at 42% you know you are not totally wasting your time. i would take 42% if we had three people, not 14. nbc wall street journal just came out, 33%. cbs and others, 41%. cbs, 35%. gravis, 34%. i am not going to bother you. i will tell you in south carolina we're at already 5%. way, way above anybody else. in iowa, cnn was 34%. the closest is iowa. i love iowa. i am going there right after this. i am going up to new hampshire. because i'm going to win. everybody keeps and, don't say that, say i think i'm going to win. i am going to win iowa. i have done great. we have done great with the evangelicals. the evangelicals have been amazing. the tea party has been amazing. we're doing really well there. we will see what happens. we can really surprise a lot of people by winning in iowa and then we will clean the table. we will go through new hampshire, south carolina, right to the roof. i think we can do really something special. and, we are going to protect christianity a and i can't say that. i do not have to be politically... text mr. trump: nowhere -- no matter what i go, we having tremendous crowds and we are drop -- drawing crowds. mobile alabama, 35 thousand people. no matter where we go, even here, i understand you have rooms all over with the various equipment to show on the screens. you have a much better location than they do but i will not tell them that. you have rooms all over with the media equipment and no matter where we go, because i will tell you, this is a movement. as a movement going on. we want to take our country back. our country is disappearing. you look at the kind of deals we make. you look at what is happening. our country is going in the wrong election. it has got to be stopped and it has got to be stopped fast. we cannot go another four years. i know maybe hillary will be here and maybe you can play this back. we cannot have another four years of barack obama. we cannot have another four years of hillary clinton. them. one of them is in there, what is he doing? he was the mayor of baltimore, his big claim to fame. then he became governor and did a horrible job. he was constantly mentioning my name. donald trump, donald trump. i said, why does he have to talk about me? and then the other two, you have a socialist who is here, actually. i was given a say you have a socialist, it could be much worse in that. and you have hillary. did anybody watch that debate last night? tremendously high taxes, things will not happen with the military. we need to build our military so big, so strong, so powerful, that nobody, nobody is going to mess with us. we have to do it. been. i get listing of different things. an army base, a naval base, everything is for sale. it is for sale. we cannot have that. we're going to build it did, build it strong, hopefully never have to use it. we will build it so strong nobody will ever want to mess with that. that is what we have to do. in the end, that is cheaper than the nonsense we're doing now. people are laughing at us. we cannot need isis. i see it on television. these generals get up and they are being interviewed on television. i do not want generals to be interviewed. one of the generals just recently, when you think of the isis threat? he said, they are very tough. can we beat them? he said, well, it is going to take a long time. i do not want that kind of general. i want to a general where we knock the hell out of them. television. ok? so the enemy can learn all about . how about president obama recently? we're sending 50 people over there, our finest. why does he say that? they have a target on their back. they're looking for those 50 people right now more than any other people. what is have to say that? why can't he just do it and not talk about it? right? why can't he do it and not talk about it? that. now, i get a lot of credit for. but in 2003-2000 or, i said if you do that you are going to destabilize the middle east. the cannot them out pretty easily, the one that is not knocked out will take over. so we knock out a rack, and iran is taking over the middle east. -- we knock out iraq, and iran is taking over the middle east. we have totally destabilize the middle east. it is a disaster. you look at this new iran deal, you look at how bad and one-sided it is, you look at how one-sided this deal is. yesterday i heard, we are getting our hostages back. some people call them prisoners, some people called them hostages. i don't care. the, we're getting them back. and then i said, why wait a minute they are getting seven back, we're getting for. they said five, but the other one they cannot find. i tell you what, that is strange. that is another thing we will be looking into. we're getting for back, they are getting seven. they are getting 14 off of the it will watch list. these are real bad customers. they are getting all sorts of advantages. unbelievable advantages. they are going to be an immensely wealthy country, an immensely wealthy terror country and they are getting $150 billion. so, when our sailors were captured last week, i said that is the one in -- that is one of the saddest things i've seen. those young people on their hands into knees in a begging position with bugs defined them with guns and then we talk like, it is ok. it is not ok. it is lack of respect. we cannot let that happen to this country. it is lack of respect. we're not going to let it happen to the schedule. we're going to be strong. we're going to be vigilant. we're going to have powerful and strong borders. look what happened this morning. if you have been seeing her reading the news, three people have just been kidnapped in iraq. because they see what the heck -- we pay $150 billion for four people. three people just this morning and this is going to take place for all of them. they should have come back as part of the deal three years ago when they started talking about the deal, not now. -- first of all we need people who negotiate properly, not people like john kerry who does not have a clue. we will have those people, i know those people. we will have those people. but, when you look at what went on, our people, all you had to do is go in and say to the persians, very good negotiators, great negotiators. air known for it. they are sitting across the table. fellows. and in this case, it is all fellows. i hate to tell this to the limit. they are little bit behind effect. they have not figured out yet that women are maybe we better than men but i would get myself in trouble with men. but you say, fellows, we want our prisoners back. will make a better deal. we want our prisoners back. they will say, no. we will say, that is ok. do not worry about it. by. it up, leave the room. -- get up and leave the room.... text mr. trump: we have been mismanaged. we of $19 trillion in debt. now maybe 21 main dollars. that ridiculous budget, and -- we can't give it to you. sorry. you could've said it, you could got the prisoners out years ago for nothing. without giving them these people. who, by the way, deserve to have been in prison. thanks were serious. and the interpol people? forget about it. these are bad people. said they made this incredible deal. but everybody makes good deals with the united states, because the world is marked and they use their smart people and they use their most cunning, streetwise people and they know what they are doing. we have people who do not know what they are doing. we want to be politically correct, like jerry-senior would say. we want to be politically correct and it is just not working. one of the reasons people are showing up for me and the polls are showing up for me -- it is not that i went to an ivy league school and all of that stuff, smart guy. i even had an uncle who was a professor at mi t for decades. a brilliant guy, dr. john trump. we can all be politically correct, but it takes to much time. it takes too much time. and a lot of it is just wrong. i will give you an example. when was the last time you saw merry christmas? you do not see it anymore. they want to be politically correct. if i am president, you are going to see merry christmas in department stores, believe me. believe me. you are going to see it. you're going to see a lot of things. but that is one example. you go shopping today, you do not see it anymore. you hardly see anything. you see walls. tainted red. you say, that is great. wonderful. we're going to be saying merry christmas again. i have friends who are not christians, they like to say merry christmas. they love it. everybody loves it. but we have taken it out of our the capillary. -- out of our vocabulary. >> i love you!... text mr. trump: i love you too. thank you. you never know that is. after yesterday, i came home and said to my wife, darling, how do you like this? she said, that's good how many people were there? they focus on my face, they never show the crowds. so she said, how many are there. she would say, how many people were there, darling? and i would say, the place is packed i had to have 15,000 or 18,000 people. in one case, we sent away 7000. you didn't see that? and she said, no. they focus on your face. the cameras are in a fixed position. i figured if they are fixed they could not move. except, every time there was a protester those cameras were like a pretzel. i love the protesters. we don't have any, honestly. i love the protesters because of the cameras rep and that corner, they would not talk about the protesters they would say, wow, that place is packed. because it is a movement. but i have to say the press is very very dishonest. now, not all of them. but most of them. very dishonest. very, very dishonest. and actually, i have never seen anything. i have seen financial press and they play games. you know, numbers or numbers. this political press is brutal. now, 25% are good. percent are great. that is not acceptable. do you agree? the camera check. i colored the camera trick, but they don't show. -- i call it the camera trick, which they do not show. it is a silent majority, but i think i'm going to up the little because it is no longer so silent. it has become a noisy majority. people want to see greatness for our country. they want to see things happen. they want to see things happen. and, they are not seeing it. these politicians are all talk, no action, they do not get it done. when i say we're going to build a wall, they say, but you talking about the cannot build a wall. and i say what you talking about? china. china. think about it. 2000 years ago, china don't great wall of china. this is a serious wall. and, they did not have caterpillar tractors or komat sus. and we have to stop that because it is coming out of japan now. they say, you cannot build a wall and i say, not only can i build it and they are saying, you cannot build a wall, can you? they don't know how to fix the infrastructure. our bridges are kremlin. our roads are crumbling. we spent $5 million in the middle east, and our country is going to hell. we have got to bring it back. we have got to knock the hell out of isis. by the way, i did not want to go to iraq, but i did not want to get out the way we got out. because what happened, and i have said this for years. i probably said this last time i was here, years ago. take the oil. take the. take the oil. keep the oil. to the victors go the spoils. we lose thousands and thousands of unbelievable people. with wounded warriors who i love all over the place. look at iraq, but we get? nothing. and i ran now take several iraq. i read made a great deal with one hundred 50 billion. two weeks he came to me, that deal is nothing. they made the really greatest deal, they took over iraq. they have been fighting for iraq for ever. under different names. but they have been fighting. but they were the same militarily. they fight and fight and fight. 10 feet right, 10 feet left, left, rest. then saddam hussein would drop gas, people would say it was unfair and to stop. this went on forever. and it would of gone on forever. so what did we give iran? we give them 100 and -- $150 billion. they don't have to develop weapons anymore, they can buy them they have so much money. how about this? we see something wrong always think something is wrong, so we have to wait 24 days before we go in. but before the 24 days start, there is a whole procedure. so who knows how long it could take. it could be six months. in certain locations, it is called self-inspection. they have the right to self-inspect. so we call upon we say, listen, we hear you are building a nuclear weapon. and they say, oh no you do not have to worry. we will self-inspect. we say, thank you very much we appreciate it now we feel much better. these are the deals we make. sergeant bergdahl? anyone ever your sergeant bergdahl? you get sergeant bergdahl, a dirty rotten traitor. six people died going after sergeant bergdahl. we get bergdahl, they get five of the great killers that they have wanted for the last nine years. the people they wanted, so we knew he was a traitor. who would make deals like this? who does this russian mark obama. -- does this? obama. china. with japan, 100 billion dollars. we're talking about one year. had you have a country, they say, will trump does not believe in fair trade. i want to be able to say, at least we're breaking even. how do you lose those kinds of numbers? i love china, by the way. ideal tremendously with china. i will a good deal of a building in san francisco or china. i own condos through china. i do business with china. in fact, my daughter is here. as of august? stand up, of oregon. -- in fact my daughter is here. where is ivanka? ivanka deals with china all the time. i have thousands of deals with china, mexico, hispanic people. that there leaders are two cunning for our leaders. look at what they are doing. the biscoe, from chicago, folks. na-- nabisco, from chicago, folks. i am going to say, stop this. we're losing our manufacturing jobs. i go to very good colleges and i see students and they are borrowed up to the neck. everything. the biggest album is, they graduate, the study, they do well. they are really wonderful, they're proud of themselves. they come out, they cannot get a job. we have got to create jobs. we have got to bring back the jobs from china and japan and all of these countries that are has off. -- that are with us off. who was going to build the wall, folks? you tell me. who is going to build the wall? mexico. everybody knows. it is so easy, you have no idea. and the reason is easy, for me, i just build a 92-story building. when you build buildings, building a wall is like hitting some blank. -- some plank. ding! but i have got to make the wall of you to fall. why? because someday they are going to name the wall trump wall. people can still come in, but they will come in legally. they will go through a process. one of the people i'm running against, such nice, religious people, i can't say bad. am i allowed to say bad in this room? but the other day for the first time i heard it, one of the folks said, we're going to build a wall. i was like, what's going on? nobody said that before system of they're all coming my way, you know. they're all coming my way. the only problem is they don't know where to begin. they wouldn't know where to begin. they'd -- it would be one of those walls, not one of these walls. if you got up there, you'd be really scared coming down. we can do it for the right price. i don't know if you saw "saturday night live," where they said, the wall, but just so you understand, the reason they're going to pay and the reason it's easy for a businessman to understand this, mexico is making a fortune on the united states. now, china, i love them. they're great. i'm not holing it against china. the largest bank in the world is a chinese bank a tenant of mine. i don't hold that against them. mexico, i don't hold it against mexico. you see what's happening with the crime and all, i don't hold that against mexico. if their politicians can do it, i hold it against our very stupid leadership in this country. i don't hold it against these other countries. i mean if they can get away with it, let them do it. i want to get away with things. i could go into story after story after story and i used to use the word incompetence. but it's not strong enough. you know? i used this eother word, you know the word i talk about, i use the other word and they say, he's plain spoken. i wrote "the art of the deal" and many best sellers. who has read "the art of the deal,"? i always say a deep, deep second to the bible. the bible is the best. the bible blows it away, nothing like the bible. but "the art of the deal," in fact, there's a few of them over there. but "the art of the deal" was the best-selling business book. obama didn't read it. kerry didn't read it. we can always do something with our country. i always used the word incorp. tent. i'm not being funded by guys from wall street that -- i'm self-financing my own campaign. i'm not taking funds. is that nice? so we can do what's good for the country. in other words, we are going to do what's good for the country. and i tell people all the time, and use ford as an example, you could use nabisco and other countries. you're going -- you've got a lot of inversion going on, companies leaving the u.s. because taxes are too high. they're leaving, it's called corporate inversion. it's a disaster. they're leaving for lower taxes or because they can't bring their $2.5 trillion back into the country. they can't do it. but take ford, i use this as an example. it could be anybody. any company that go into other countries. but take ford. $2.5 million. they've taken a lot of stuff out of michigan. they're closing other things. they're going to build this massive thing, heard $2.5 billion for one place, they're going to make cars, trucks and parts. the president offord wrote me a letter telling me it's a good thick, it's not. good company, run very well, good product. i love ford, i love chevrolet, i love all of our products. we want to buy u.s.a., right? but they wrote me, and i said, the story. let's say a stiff like jeb bush is president. let's say jeb bush is president. ok. low nrbling person but that's ok. let's say jeb becomes president. jeb is fun. they'll go to him he has $128 million he got from doe no, sir, special interests, everybody. lobbyists. so ford will hire one of the lobbyists, they'll -- look, i know this game better than anybody. i've been plying this game for a long time. i changed sides. i was total establishment. now i'm like the worst thing that ever happened to the establishment because i understand the game. so now they go to, let's say jeb, they say, mr. president, this is a bad thing. i agree it's bad, i agree it's bad. we can't allow this to happen. he'll get a call from lobbyists or special interests. mr. president, they gave you $5 million. you can't not make this deal. did they? another one will call, mr. president, they gave you $2 million, you've got to take care offord. ok, i'll do it. we lose the jobs, we lose all the different things. with me, they're going to call. hillary, just as bad, even worse. hillary, they'll call, they're going to call hillary and they're going to say, madam president, by the way, i want to see a woman president soon but not her. she's a disaster. she's a disaster. she's a disaster. and the scandal. we don't want to go through it. you don't want to go through it. we want to see winning. win, win, win. i always joke, i say, we want to see win, win, win, constant winning, and you'll say if i'm president, you'll say, please, mr. president, we're winning too much, we can't stand it anymore, can't we have a loss? and i'll say, no, we're going to keep win, winning, winning, we're going to make america great again. and you'll say ok, mr. president. ok. but they'll call hillary with ford, right? they'll call hillary. and they'll say, madam president. she'll do the same thing. because her donors gave her a lot of money and they need money for the next election. by the way, the only time politicians really work right is when they're sort of like retiring. like the gentleman over there, the congressman. he's a young guy. he retired of his own volition because he knows what's going on in washington, which i have great respect for. some of them retire and get a little tougher. with ford, you take a look. they call them, now it's president trump. so what are they building in mexico for? they're going to build. remember this, cars, trucks, and parts, they're going to sell them across the border, no tax. you say, we're all smart people, how does that help us? we close plants and we open new plants in mexico and they sell and there's no tax. so they're going to say, no, no, no. we're going for it. i'll say if you go forward, that's fine. but for every car, truck, and whatever else you're building, you are going to pay a 35% tax every time it crosses the border. we have to. or we're not going to have a country left. everyone is ripping us. everyone is ripping us. i don't want to do that because i'm a free trader, i want free trade. but we've got to be smart here, folks. we've lost seven, eight, some people say 10 million jobs, we've lost 50,000 manufacturing plants, we're getting killed. and the quality of our jobs is terrible. you saw that in the last report. they have this phony number, 5.2%. everybody that quits looking for a job is considered statistically a person that has a job. it's a phony number. your probable real number is like 22%, 23%. if you look at crowds like this, if we were at 5%, 5.2%, nobody would be there. although they might be there because the military is so badly run with this president. probably there for other reasons. basically, you wouldn't have the kind of crowds and the kind of poll numbers that we have. so i'll tell ford the following. look. got to move your plant back. they'll call me, have a few people call me, doesn't matter, they didn't give me any money. jerry was right. they don't own me. self-fund they don't own me. i'll say, look, mr. president offord, i'm sorry, you've got to build here or we're charging you a tax. i'll say, think about it overnight, he'll call me back the next day, i guarantee you, 100%, he'll say, mr. president, we have decided to build a plant in the united states. ok, that's what will happen. it has to happen. it has to happen. free trade is good but we have to be smart about it. or we're not going to have a country left. so when this started, and i call it a journey, on june 16, the escalator, has everyone seen the famous escalator? i was coming down to reporters, it was like the academy awards, i'd never seen so many cameras in my rife. jerry said, it's very hard for somebody to run for president. very hard for somebody that's very successful, i've heard this all my life, to go into politics, especially if you're going to run for president. you're exposing so much. you're doing deals and deals, plus you don't do this. who would have known i was going to do this. i love doing debates, i never debated before. politician decisions do it all the time, they're all talk no action. on top of them most of -- on top of that, most of them are not even good debaters. you'd think they could debate properly. some of the things they say is incredible. but we're coming down the escalator and i said to my wife, ok. we have to do it. i've just seen so many stupid things. i say we have to do it. we've got to go and we've got to do it. and she said if you want to do it, i'm with you 100%. she's been so supportive. and i got on, thank you, i got on the escalator and we're going down, i'm waving, and i'm saying wow, and i went up and started talking about illegal immigration. and boy, did i take it. for two weeks, rush limbaugh said the most he's ever seen a human being take. when i speak about success, a lot of people asked me to -- ask me to speak about success, i love speaking about it because i can help people. one of the things is, you've got to love what you do but you can never, this applies to so many young, incredible people in this room, you can never, ever give up. you can never give up. if you give up, you're not going to make it. i've seen people over the years, i went to wharton and i know people that have been phenomenal , but they zrnt that drive, that stick to itiveness, they didn't make it over guys that are not as good, not as smart but they had the drive. so you've really got to never, ever quit or give up. so i said. so important. i figured i'd get out of politics for at least two sentences. but it's so true. just don't quit. and for you, always, always go into a field you love. you've got to love it. if you don't love it, you're not going tore successful. even if people say, oh, you should, you've got to love it. if you don't love what you do, you're never going to be successful. that's beautiful. i make you proud to be an american. stand up. and do -- did i ever meet you before? no. that's very nice. thank you, man, thank you. but we mean that. we mean it. very nice. so, i took a lot of incoming as rush said, he's a great guy, tremendous incoming. and i stuck. and i even doubled down. and then all of a sudden you had tremendous stats coming out which were terrible but tremendous numbers. and you saw the kind of crime and you saw the the woman in los angeles who was raped, sodomized and killed by an illegal immigrant you saw the kind of horror going on, not only in terms of border, not only in terms of coming in, not only in terms of drugs pouring across drugs which are yoing go rr are going to ruin the fabric of our country, coming across the border but in terms of the sheer volume. people started to say, you know, trump is right. if i didn't talk about imlegal -- illegal immigration in my opening remarks, i don't think you'd be talking about it today and it's one of the most important things anybody is talking about. one of the most important things. so when it started out, i started talking about the different things. common core, very bad. got to educate your children locally. very bad. very good. when we have people, the whole gun situation is under siege, now they're talking about we want to give less bullets, take bullets away, they are talking about, you can't let it happen. by the way in paris, which has probably the toughest gun laws in the world, and france, had bullets been going the other way you wouldn't have had 130 people killed and plenty more to follow who were so badly injured. in california, recently, two weeks ago, where you had the 14 people killed and others to follow because of the tremendous injuries, but then you had the 14 by these two radicalized people. the people that were killed gai them wedding parties. they held wedding party, they knew them, they were friends. they went in and killed 4 people. if we had a couple of guys like him or him or definitely him with the white hat on, with a gun strapped and the bullets would go the other way, you would have had problems, you wouldn't have had it to the same extent at all. we need the second amendment, don't let anybody take it away. if i get elected, it's totally protected. totally protected. we have to do something and these are the things i talked about. we have to do something about super p.a.c.s. super p.a.c.s are now running the country. they're running our politicians and our politicians aren't doing what's right for all of us. we've got to get rid of the super p.a.c.s. we want to have an idea of who's what's being put up and who is doing it, got to get rid of the super p.a.c.s. with paris, pretty much the start of paris, all of a sudden paris happens and my poll numbers went way up and i didn't know what happened? then cnn did a big poll and a big study and they said, trump is number one by far on the military. by far on protection. by far on the border. by far on isis. because they see me, because of my very strong stance on illegal immigration, it's an offshoot, i won't let the syrians that we have no idea who they are, they want to come into our country, they may be isis, it may be the great trojan horse of all time. who knows. we cannot take a chance. i want to build a safe zone, some place in syria, but what's happening in germany is a disaster. what's happening in brussels, you look, what's happening all over europe. europe is being absolutely swamped and destroyed. what's going on with the crime and the problems. and it could be some sinister plot. you look at these migration you look at the lines and you look at the tremendous amount of young, strong men in those lines. and you say, what's going on? obama wants to take in thousands and thousands of people. we can't do it folks. we can't do it. we don't know anything about the people. we're going to do a free zone and a safe zone, we're going to do something where we have to get the gulf states, they have nothing but money, got to get them to fund it, got to get them to put up the money. without us, they wouldn't be there very long. we protect them. with the military, by the way, we're protecting countries that are behemoths. we're protecting countries that are so rich so powerful so incredible, south korea, we protect south korea. i have many friends that have buildings in south korea, but we're protecting south korea with 28,000 soldiers in the line. between the maniac and south korea. we're protecting them. they pay us peanuts. we pr protect germany, we protect japan, we protect countries nobody knows about. before the oil price went down saudi arabia was making $1 billion a day. we protect them. they pay us like practically nothing compared to the cost. they've got to pay up. they've got to pay up. everybody has to pay up. we can't do this anymore. we've got to run it like a business but with heart. we're going to create great health care, get rid of obamacare, going to terminate it. we're going to repeal it and replace it. and now you see the signs, the stock market is starting to go down, a lot of bad things. i've been saying this. we're riding a big, fat juicy bubble. giving out loans for nothing. you look at what's happening with our money. you look at what's happening with the federal reserve. so we're riding a bubble. it could be really ugly. but right now you're starting to see at least the beginning signs of it because the stock market, which was the only indicator that things were good is starting to go down. what's happening is, with paris, i took a different turn. now i'm back and really back to security and security for our country and great, great military. we're going to build that military. great, great military. and people are loving it and people need it and they don't have confidence in the politicians and they don't have confidence essentially in the other candidates. when you're leading by the kind of numbers i'm leading by, they don't have confidence in the other candidates. because they understand politicians. we've been dealing with politicians for the last so many years, we're so tired of dealing with these people, they're no good for what we have. so we're going to do things that can be done. we're going to fix our military. we're going to take care of our vets who are the greatest people, most incredible people. they're treated horribly. i mean, our vets, our vets are treated worse than illegal immigrants in many cases. you see what's going on. our vets are not being treated properly. we're spending tremendous amounts of money. the corruption in the v.a. administration and the veterans administration is beyond belief. we're going to fix the situation so our vets are taken care of the way they should be taken care of. we're going to do all of these things and we're going to create security. we're going to have great security. so in a nutshell, number one, it's an honor to be here again. it's an honor in terms of martin luther king to have broken the record work dedicating the record to the late, great, martin luther king. but it's an honor. and very simply, and i didn't used to say this, two or three weeks ago i wouldn't have said it but i think i can say it now because i've seen so many people, we have such amazing people, sharp, smart, energetic, they're amazing. i was saying make america great again. i think we can say now, we're going to get things come, going to get apple start building their computers -- computers and things in this country instead of in other countries. i honestly think i can say, and i've said it for the last two weeks and i mean it 100% or i wouldn't say it, we're going to make america great again, greater than ever before. and we can do that. and we're going to win and we're going to win a lot. i want to thank you. i want to thank jerry and becky and everybody. we love you all. you're a special school a special university. and a -- and amazing people. thank you, everybody. thank you. thank you, everybody. thank you.now, republican presidential candidate donald trump speaks at the aipac conference. he focused his remarks on the iran nuclear deal and criticism of obama's foreign policy in the middle east. this is 25 minutes. mr. trump: good evening. thank you very much. i speak to you today as a lifetime supporter and it true friend of israel. the jewish state. in 2001, weeks after the attacks on new york city, and on washington, and frankly, the attacks on all of us. attacks that are traded -- that were perpetrated by the islamic fundamentalists. mayor mary -- mayor rudy giuliani visited. i sent my plane because i backed the mission or israel 100%. the gaza strip, i was the grand marshal of the 40th salute to israel parade. the largest single gathering in support of the jewish state. many people turned down this honor. i did not. i took the risk and i am glad i did. all talk, no action. late me. -- believe me. i came to speak to you about where i stand on the future of american relations with our strategic ally, our unbreakable friendship, and our cultural brother. the only democracy in the middle east, the state of israel. catastrophic for america, for israel, and for the whole of the middle east. world's leading state-sponsored terror with $150 billion and we received absolutely nothing in return. by far than anybody else. believe me. oh, believe me. and it is a bad deal. the biggest concern with the deal is not necessarily that iran is going to violate it, because already, you know, as you know, it has. the bigger problem is that they can keep the terms and still get the bomb by simply running out the clock. and of course, they will keep the billions and billions of dollars that we so stupidly and foolishly gave them. its military nuclear capabilities. yes, it places limits on its military nuclear program for only a certain number of years, but when those restrictions expire, iran will have an industrial-sized military nuclear capability ready to go and with zero provision for delay no matter how bad iran's behavior is. terrible, terrible situation we are all placed in and especially israel. focuses on three things when it comes to iran. first, we will stand up to iran's aggressive push to destabilize and dominate the region. but if i am not elected president, i know how to deal with trouble and believe me that is why i am going to be elected president, folks. syria, lebanon, yemen, and will be a very, very major problem for saudi arabia. every day i ran provides more and better weapons to support their puppet states. hezbollah, lebanon received, and i will tell you what, it has received sophisticated anti-ship weapons. anti-aircraft weapons. and, gps systems and rockets like very few people ever wear in the world and very few countries have. now they are in syria trying to establish another front against israel from the syrian side of the goal and heights. in gaza, around the is supporting hamas and islam a jihad. in the west bank, they are openly offering palestinians $7,000 for terror attacks in to thousand dollars for every palestinian terrorist home that has been destroyed. a deplorable, deplorable situation. has perpetuated terrorist attacks in 25 different countries on five continents. they have terrorist cells everywhere, including in the western hemisphere very close to home. i ran is the biggest sponsor of terrorism around the world and we will work to dismantle that reach. he leave me. believe me. -- believe me, he leave me. -- third, at the very least we must enforce the terms of the previous deal to hold a ran totally accountable and we will and force it like you have never seen a contract and forced before, folks. believe me. iran has already, since the deal was in place, testfired ballistic missile's three times. those ballistic missiles, with a range of 1250 miles, were designed to intimidate not only israel, which is only 600 miles away, but also intended to frighten europe and someday, maybe, hit even the united states. and, we are not going to let that happen. we are not letting that happen and we are not letting that happen to israel. believe me. those missiles and both hebrew and farsi were the words, israel must be weighed -- wiped off the face of the earth. you can forget that. what kind of demented minds of right that in hebrew? and here's another. talk about twisted. here is another twisted part. testing these missiles does not even violate the horrible deals that we made. the deal is silent on test missiles. but those tests do violate the united nation security council regulations. the problem is no one has done anything about it. we will. we will. i promise, we will. incompetence of the united nations. -- the utyter weakness and incompetence of the united nations. the united nations is not a friend of democracy. it is not a friend to freedom. it is not a friend even to the united states of america, where, as you know, it has its home. and it surely is not a friend to israel. thing to ever happen to israel. believe me. believe me. and you know it, and you know it better than anybody. so with the president has final years, discussions have been swirling about an attempt to bring a security resolution to terms about an eventual resolution between palestine and israel. let me be clear, an agreement imposed by the united nations would be a total and complete disaster. use the power of our veto, which i will use as president 100%. a deal. deals are made when parties come together. they come to a table and negotiate. each side must give up something. it's values i mean, we have to do something where there is value in exchange for something required. that is when a deal is. when we impose it on israel and palestine, we bring together a group of people that come together with something. that will not happen with the stations. it will only further -- very importantly, it will only further delegitimizing israel. it will be a disaster for israel. it is not going to happen, fowlkes! and further, it would reward terrorism because every day they are stabbing israelis and even americans. just last week, a west point graduate, phenomenal young person who served in iraq and afghanistan, was murdered in the street by a knife-wielding palestinian. you do not reward behavior like that. you can not do it. into a solution. it is really the parties that must negotiate a resolution themselves. they have no choice. they have to do it themselves or will never hold up anywhere. the united states can be useful as a facilitator of negotiations, but no one should be telling israel that it must be -- and really that it must abide by some agreement made by others thousands of miles away that do not to even really know what is happening to israel, to anything in the area. it is so preposterous. we are not going to let that happen. state. it will be vetoed 100%. that is what i do. i wrote "the art of the deal." one of the best-selling, all time. and i mean, seriously. i am going to be very diplomatic. one of -- i'll be criticized, i think it is number one, but why take a chance? one of the all-time best-selling books about deals and dealmaking. to make a great deal, you need it to willing participants. we know israel is willing to deal. israel has been trying. right. israel has been trying to sit down at the negotiating table without preconditions for years. you had camp david in 2000, where prime minister barak made an incredible offer, maybe even too generous. arafat rejected it. in 2008, and equally generous offer to palestinian -- the palestinian authority rejected it also. then john kerry tried to come up with a framework and a boss did not even -- and abbas did not even respond. not even to the secretary of state of the human -- united states of america. they did not even respond. i mean it. i will meet with prime minister netanyahu immediately. i have known him for many years and will be able to work closely together with him to help bring stability and peace to israel and to the entire region. meanwhile, every single day, you have rampant incitement and children being taught to hate israel and to hate the jews. it has to stop. heroes, little kids want to be firefighters. when you live in a society whereat athletes and movie stars are heroes, little kids want to be athletes and movie stars. in palestinian society, the heroes are those who murder jews. we cannot let this continue. we can't let this happen any longer. you -- terrorists are treated as moderates. -- murders. it is a horrible, horrible way to think. it is a barrier that cannot be broken. that will end. it will lend soon. believe me. and palestinian textbooks in mosques, you have a culture of hatred that has been fomenting there for years. if we want to achieve peace, they have got to go out and if they have got to start this educational process. they have to and education of hatred. they have to and it. and, now! there is no moral equivalency. israel does not name public squares after terrorists. israel does not pay its children to stab random palestinians. you see, what president obama gets wrong about dealmaking is that he constantly applies pressure to our friends and rewards our enemies. by the palestinian isis and hamas. the other half refuses to confront the first half, so it is a very difficult situation that is never going to get solved unless you have great leadership right here in the united states. we will get it done one way or the other. we will get it solved. donald trump is president of the united states. capital of the jewish people. jerusalem. israel. the palestinians must come to the table knowing that the bond between the united states and israel is absolutely, totally unbreakable. the terror of being committed by a -- on a daily basis against israel. a must do that. in, they must come to the table willing to accept that israel is a jewish state and it will forever exist as a jewish state. i love israel. i love israel. i have been with israel for so long in terms of i received some of my greatest honors from israel. my father before me. my daughter is about to have a beautiful jewish baby. concerned. thank you all, inc. you. winky there he much. -- thank you all, thank you. thank you all very much. ... textmr. trump: thank you so much. what a turnout. what a turnout. wow! you need tough people and he's a tough cookie. and when we got his endorsement, we were thrilled, i tell you that. he is a great guy. you know, i was doing a little bit of a thing called the debates -- i guess a little television time, i guess. you know, i was going to the debate and i was going directly in florida and doing really well in florida. and campaigning against the guy who has the worst voting record in the history of the state of florida named rubio. i call him light weight. he's a light weight. worst history in florida. let's hope i do well there. i love florida. but i was going to detroit and i said to my people, i have to stop in maine. i just had to stop in maine. outside, to put this crowd together in a period of what, 24 hours? maine is one of the most beautiful places on earth and people don't realize how large your land mass is. as large as all of new england when you think of it. that's some piece of land. can i buy some? can i buy some amazing results and with new hampshire, it was an amazing and incredible thing. and every single time i went to new hampshire, whenever i met with people, they would say number one problem, number one problem, heroin. number one problem. and i would say how is that possible? you look at the beautiful fields and beautiful little roads and everything is so beautiful and it was the number one problem and comes from our southern border and we are going to close up that border and going to build a wall and stop the drugs from coming in. believe me. going to come in legally. and we are going to solve the problem. i watched these pundits, my wife and i came down the elevator and first started and it was amazing. i said we have to do something because we have people who don't know what they are doing, don't know what they are doing in running our country. just in hearing some of these things. we have to do it. and it takes guts to run for president. i'm not a politician. all talk, no action, nothing gets done. any way, we are coming down and i said to myself, you know, there's so many things and i watched the pundits and they said, trump, i don't know, we have some debate talent running and i'm trying to figure out where? where? what's the talent? you come down and start talking about trade and see what happens with trade. trade has been such a disaster. but the pundits all said, i came out at 3%, first one. my wife said if you run, you are going to win. you can't say, even if they call it, people still say you aren't going to run. if you run, you are going to win. she's my pollster. i pay her less money. you know what happens? i started at 3, the first day or something. which i wasn't thrilled about and went up to 6, 12, 18 and kept going up and every time i went up, they would say he was plateaued. we'll, he's always going to get 6. then i went up to 12. then i went up to 24. and that's for 17 people. we had 17 people. 24, 17 people, that's a lot. and they said that's the max and went up to 28, 32 so cnn just came out with a poll. trump, 49. because this isn't a plateau but a movement. we have a movement going on, folks. time magazine did a story recently, a couple of weeks ago talking about what's going on and never seen anything like it. they say actually and i don't think i'm ex ager ating but many of the great writers which there are very few because many of the writers are among the most dishonest people i ever dealt with, but they said in the history of this country, there has never been anything like this. we were in huntsville, alabama, we had 35,000 people. 35,000 people. we were -- we went to arkansas. oh, is that another one? get them out. get them out. get them out. they just don't stop. get them out. thank you. bye-bye. bye-bye. terrible. incredible. now you know, you can be nice if you are nice, they will say you were soft. and you can be vicious, get out of here! and then say -- please get them out. putting up my own money. but you have to do -- i don't want your money, i just want your vote on saturday. long. big turn. so you can get out the vote, ok. so our country and our theme is make america great again. and over the last little while, i have met so many people, thousands and thousands and thousands of people. we have like this -- we are only confined by the size of the room. this is packed but this is the size of the room. thousands and thousands of great, great americans. and i have more confidence in this country now than i ever had before. i have seen -- i mean millions of people, really, because when you get 35,000, 40,000 people for rallies and we have by far the biggest rallies. bernie is second. i have to give him credit. but we have by far the biggest. and i see by far the most people and this country has unbelievable people that love our country. just remember that. and honestly, i'll address it quickly because it's irrelevant. and i don't know what happened to him. he disappeared. he disappeared. and i wasn't happy about it, i'll be honest, because i'm not a fan of barack obama and that was a race that i backed mitt romney. and i backed him. you can see how loyal, he was begging. i could have said drop to your knees. he would have dropped to his knees. he was begging me. and he said i'm not big like him and great businessman. since then, i have done much better. but we'll talk about it in a second. hit was thinking about running again. he ran a horrible campaign. it was a campaign that never should have been lost. you are running against a failed president. he came up with 47%, he demeaned 47% of the people in our country, the famous 47%. once that was said, i'll be honest, once that was said, a lot of people thought it was over for him. the last month and a half, he disappeared. i called his people and said you have to do yourself a favor. obama, he was on jay leno and david letterman. hit was looking for zoning for nine-car garages. who cars about a garage. you are running for president. and hit was a disaster as a candidate. so what happened, and it was very strong and i think if the press goes back, they'll see it. when i heard he was running again and i wasn't sure i was going to be running, but i was very, very strong to hit and everybody, because i didn't want to talk to him. i was so disappointed, because he let us down. he let us down. one thing you lose and you work and you work, he let us down. he should have won. something happened. he went away. he was gone. he was horrible in the third debate. it was a horrible -- something happened. i don't know what happened. maybe someday they'll write a book. his campaign guy was terrible. he is always on television. stuart stevens. he ran one of the worst campaigns in the history of modern politics. and hit ran probably was the worst one because most people thought that the republican candidate would win. so when hit started raising his head a few months ago, i very strong. i said mitt romney should not run. he is a choke artist and i said it very strongly. and then jeb bush actually convinced hit not to run. can you imagine jeb, jeb told him. jeb, he is a good salesman. jeb is a good salesman. he's a high-energy salesman. but hit was afraid of jeb because he was afraid that jeb would get the money and jeb would get whatever. i wasn't afraid. i wasn't afraid of jeb. i can tell you that. jeb bush convinced hit not to run. this was going to be a third one. second a great catastrophe. and what happened was he went to see jeb and jeb had him convinced he has the money and hit chickened out. i'll tell you the real reason he chickened out, it was me. if you remember hit was all set to run. i know this from people that are close to him and i think he has a desire maybe at the convention to get some kind of a thing. hillary clinton will destroy him. assuming she is allowed to run and assuming she is not arrested for the emails dch but let's assume that the democrats are going to protect her, let's assume that i will be running against hillary. i would love to run against hillary. and by the way, we have numerous polls show me beating her easily. she called me sexist and i hit her with the husband and that was the last time i ever heard the word sexist. so that was it. they had a rough weekend. bill was not happy. i guarantee you, he said don't you ever say that to him again. say it to somebody else, but not to trump. that was a rough, rough weekend. but hit was going to run as sure as you are standing here. but he was going to run i you was very, very angry that he was going to run. i didn't know i was going to be this, but i felt i wanted to. nbc wanted to extend "the apprentice" for 26 episodes. steve burke, please, donald, we would like you to do "the apprentice." the ratings after 14 seasons were still debate. and i said steve, i think i'm going to run for president. no. no. no you're not. they didn't want me to because the show does great. and ultimately i decided to run. and equal time laws, you can't do both. how is arnold schwarzenegger doing? arged? trump? well, we are going to find out if arnold is quick, because if he's not quick" and when the them coming at you, you have to be quick and smart. i hope he does well. i hope arged does well. they -- arnold does well. they renewed the show with me in the upfronts and i gave up a lot of deals and things to do this, takes a lot of effort. those are the people trying to get in. can you believe it? how about everybody clear out and let a new group come in? when i heard hit was going to run a little before this period of time, i was very tough. i said he can't run. he can't run. he was going to run. he can't run and i said look we have to keem him out. he is a choke artist. and i started hitting him so hard. we cannot take another loss. we cannot take another loss. and hit is indeed a choke artist and choked like i never seen anyone choke other than when rubio when chris christie was grilling him. that was one of the great chokes. he was standing there, shaking and sweating. right over here. i'm getting ready to grab him because i thought he was going down. but hit did a big sulk. a couple of things i heard he said. first of all, he doesn't mention the fact that i built a city on the west side of manhattan or buildings on the west side of manhattan and talking about a beef and water company. i supply all my clubs with the water. numerous those things. the magazine, other things. get them out. get them out. get them out. speaking of mexico, i won the hispanic vote by far in nevada, right? the big, big tuesday where we won a tremendous number. and i have to tell you this. so ultimately hit chickened out and now he's saying that hillary is very weak. but ultimately he didn't. he would have gotten beaten very badly. a couple of things were mentioned that we have to discuss. first of all when he talks about me, i wrote a couple of them down. they don't want to talk about 92-story buildings all over the place, don't talk about the bank of america building in san francisco, 1290 avenue of the americas or the west side rail road yards where i built a city on the west side of manhattan and don't want to talk about 40 wall street but want to talk about water, which i still have. i supply all my clubs. they want to talk about a magazine and i have a magazine that goes to all my clubs. by the way, a school, little deal, but i loved it when it was there, trump university, but i will tell you, just so you understand, the school had 98% approval rating. an attorney felt i could sue trump and get something. 98% of the people took the courses we signed report cards. you put somebody up in the stand, did you right this -- write this. they did a commercial that took it down where two people were saying negatives and we showed the statements and had to take the commercial down. 98% of the people that took the courses said really wonderful things about it. it got an a from the better business bureau. i think how do i settle a case like this. b-plus would be ok, too. but we did better than a b-plus. so and here's one thing i say about business. i watch these bankers and they get millions of dollars a year. 40 million and 50 million and will settle with the government for $2 billion, $5 billion, $12 billion. i say why dornt you fight it? if you don't fight it, someone is going to sue you. next week they get sued again. you have to fight these things out. you have to do what's out. with the university, i knew i could get some bad publicity. do we agree with that, by the way? it's a very small case, civil case and i'm going to win it in court and cost me more money to win it in court than to settle. lousy timing because too busy it wasn't later because i happen to be running for president. any businessman or woman has lawsuits. people sue to get their money back, they sue for this and sue for a million different reasons. 98% approval rating, a from the better business bureau. we are going to win the case. it will be forever because it takes forever. i don't like to settle cases. because once you settle cases everybody says he is a settler, let's sue. a lot of people don't sue me because they say it's too hard. that hit brought up which is so serious he said about trade. we have to keep trade, nobody knows more about trade than me. i made so much more money than hit. i have a a store that's worth more money than hit. i made that statement jockingly when i was in iowa and "the "des moines register" which is a terrible paper, but they said that's a terrible statement, that's a terrible statement. and the people put me on and said what are you saying. they said you have a store that is worth more than hit. i said what's he worth? they said $150 million. it's the gucci store. i said it's much more. we don't believe the store is worth $150 million. they got three appraiseors and said that store is worth from $400 million to a billion two. check your local "des moines register." i'm not sure it's still open. i built an amazing company. and one of the reasons you know what's amazing, the hottest development, the hottest development site probably in the history of the general services administration, g.s.a., that's the government service is the old post office site. that's where it is built in washington, d.c. an entire block fronting on pennsylvania avenue. if i did don't get there, i'm getting to the white house. fronting on pennsylvania avenue but one of the most beautiful buildings. and the g.s.a. for many, many years owned it and wanted to develop it for 30, 35 years and never worked out. big job. and never happened. and went to bid. and in bidding it they had morbiders and more high-level bidders. let's assume just about the hottest job that they have ever put out to bid. every hotel company wanted it. i'm building a 300-room super luxury hotel. everybody wanted it. they went out to a public bid. and one of the things in choosing the bidder is how strong is the bidder and how good is the bidder's idea. they loved my idea. this bib one of the great hotels in the world. two years ahead of schedule. going to open in september. we are two years ahead of schedule and the g.s.a. people are terrific and we are under budget. the reason is that i'm using marble instead of terraza. a lot of different things. we are going the highest end. the reason i got chosen was because my financial statement was so strong because it could guarantee completion. and number two, we had the best idea. when i listen to this myth and this is in the obama administration. i wouldn't say i had an advantage. i said to my daughter and she was very much involved with that, i said maybe, maybe we aren't going to get it. but my financial statement is so strong and i put it in -- romney talks about taxes. taxes maybe this. very little do you learn from taxes. you can't learn very much. but i did file almost 100 pages of financial statements with the federal elections and it shows that i have a net worth that could be over $10 billion, probably over. and i don't do that in a bragging way. i tell you because that's the kind of thinking we need. we have $19 trillion was -- paul was saying. $19 trillion in debt. i have very low debt and tremendous cash flow. and i found my financials. he said maybe there is something in his tax return. but i get audited every single year and because the company is so big, fortune 500 companies every year. because my company is so big or some of the reason which is unfair. let's leave it at that. they audit me every year. i think it's unfair. but i have been audited every year for many years. i have nothing -- and nobody in this room would say you are being audited. you get audited and finish up the audit, routine stuff and release the tax returns. if hit would like to go down to the federal election office you will see 100 pages of financials that were filed ahead of schedule. i could have delayed it for six months. i filed them for 30 days and i had to work with the accountants and they worked overtime because i didn't want them saying he is asking for extensions. so with hit, i just wanted to tell you, he came out, it was very nasty. i thought he was a better person than that. i helped him. i raised money for his campaign and two fundraisers for him. the first one was so successful that we had the second one that same day. his wife which is a really lovely woman. she came up and had a fundraiser in my apartment at trump tower. i did a great job. they couldn't have caredless. they said donald, he is a stiff, he's not going to win. i should have listened to the guy. but we had a fundraiser and it was so big and raining out, i won't forget about this. it was a miserable, miserable day and people came in, hundreds of people phase one and said there's too many people to put them in one and called for another one after. and because everybody's shoes were so wet, i ruined my carpet. this carpet was wiped out and nobody thanked me for the carpet. maybe i could send hit a bill for carpet ruined. when you help somebody, when you help somebody, i made six robot calls. every single place i made, he won. north carolina. six different places. you helped somebody and then he turns. now, i will say this. i will say this. i will say this. he probably had a right to turn, because nobody could have been nass nastier than me. and the reason i said that. i love our country too much. if he would have run and even if he would have won, it would have been bad. he doesn't have what it takes to be president. he doesn't have what it takes to be president. so i do want to mention one thing because it worked so well because his speech was so long and covered a lot of territory. he didn't mention the many buildings and building over 120 jobs all over the world. we just got turnberry and d omp ral and they are having the world championship today in florida and nimea in maine. roary and everybody is down there. and tiger is going down there. but they're all there. all at my place and here i am making a speech in maine, ok. so if i don't win on saturday, i'll say boy, was a mistake. any way, i think we will. he talked about trade. talked domestic. bye-bye. bye-bye. bye-bye. get them out. get them out. i love you, too. these people. i tell you what, your police are fantastic. do we love our police? stupid incident or bad incident or one bad person, which happens out of the whole country and it's the biggest story in the news and it plays forever and people don't realize how great a job the police of this country do, i have to tell you. so one of the things that hit was talking about was domestic policy and we need trade and we need trade and we have to deal with china and deal with all these people, look. last year in terms of a trade deficit we lost with china $500 billion. we lost with mexico. that's why mexico is going to pay for the wall, folks. mexico, look, the wall, it's actually 2,000 miles. we have a lot of natural barriers. wall is going to cost $10 billion. going to be a trump wall and bring it in under budget. i have to name it after myself because maybe -- should i name it after myself? i don't think so. but we are going to have a real wall and going to be great. stop drugs pouring into maine and new hampshire. walls work. properly done, walls work. they come up to me and say, but mexico will never pay. politicians say, but donald -- first they said there is no wall. you can't bilt a wall. china built a wall that is 13,000 miles. 2,000 miles, we can do it. i hear cruz saying we can't build a wall and we heard him say, we are going to a build a wall. i don't know if rubio said it. i think rubio has bigger problems than worrying about walls. here's the thing we have with mexico a $58 billion trade deficit. if the wall costs $10 billion, a tiny fraction, i guarantee you that mexico is going to pay for the wall just as sure as you are standing there. a politician wouldn't say that. and vincente fox threw the f-word out. f-bomb. can you imagine if i used that word? that would be a big story. he threw it out and nobody cares. and then we had our vice president apologize to them. i love mexico and the mexican people and i have hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of mexican people, thousands have worked for me. the hispanics are phenomenal people. i won the poll in nevada. i won nevada and i won with the hispanics which is so good. so good. we are getting killed at the border and trade. nabisco is moving in from chicago and closing their big plant. look at ford, they are building a massive car complex and closing in michigan and other places and closing and going to mexico. the other day, carrier air conditioners. good air conditioners. i'm not buying them anymore. they announced 1,400 men and women are being laid off. big, big story. 1,400 and this manager -- well, ladies and gentlemen we are closing our plant and moving to mexico. he was pretty tough. this was not a guy with social grace. they are going to move to mexico. mitt romney said we have to keep free trade. if we keep free trade, we aren't going to have any companies left at all. you more -- know more about nafta but we are going to do something much different. i built a tremendous fortune and i started off with very little. they say my father. if my father would have given -- my sister and brother called me up and said don, are they kidding. and now it's worth billions and billions and billions of dollars. i will tell you something. with the carrier plant, what you have to do is you have to be smart. so this isn't free trade. we have to have smart trade. china charges tremendous tariffs and taxes. i have a friend who is a manufacturer. he makes great product and puts it into china and they send it back. third time they take it but pays a tremendous tax. you have no idea how tough it is to negotiate with china. and when they take the product, they charge you the tax. china when they sell their product. no tax. take our jobs, no tax, no nothing. not going to work that way. mexico the same thing. ford builds this plant going to make cars, trucks and parts and going to send them into our country. no tax. where is that good for us? when i watch a guy like romney who truly is a light weight. think of it. he is talking about trade. and i love free trade. i'm a free trader. a lot of the conservatives say donald trump doesn't like free trade. i want smart trade. i don't want to be losing $500 billion a year. i don't want to be losing $58 billion a year. i want to make money or break even at worst. a guy like ted cruz getting a lot of money from oil and other places, ok. honestly that's the way life works. oil, 100%. he'll get a lobbyist, 100%. me, it's different. here's what they will do it. they'll carry it to anyone who will listen. only way we are going to stop this tremendous outflow of companies and pfizer, great drug company leaving going to ireland. wonderful. but you aren't going to take advantage of us. you aren't going to take of us. here's what happens. let's use carrier. i know it's not presidential and my wife called before and said darling, would you ask presidential like you were the other night when you had those victories. i said, but i have incoming. when you have incoming, you can't be too presidential. i said i have incoming. here's what happens. they said act presidential tonight. i said i'll act presidential, but if somebody hits me, i'm going to hit them back harder. anything, the lobbyists will say you can't do anything to carrier or f omprmp d. they have been loyal to you and very good. and good. that's the end of that. here's what i do. i call up and i would like to use one of my guys. many of the great businessmen and women endorse me. i would announce them but nobody cares. these are the most important people. i will use the greatest business people, greatest negotiators in the world. this is so easy. i want to do it myself but it's so unpresidential for me to call up carrier. i call up say hi, i'm president donald trump, president of the united states. i hope you enjoy your stay in mexico and i hope you build a beautiful plant and i want to wish you well, but let me tell you something, you moved out. you hurt 1,400 people. these people were devastated. i watched it and did a great job. you hurt 1,400 people and there's no free trade. their politicians are smarter and streeter and smart-wise. i said here's the story, every air conditioning unit you make and every single air conditioning unit you make and comes into the border into the united states, we are going to charge you a 35% tax, ok? here. you have to speak to the president. they can't speak to me. i didn't take their money. here's what's going to happen. they are going to call me up within 24 hours and say, mr. president, do you have any second thoughts. i say absolutely not. sir, we decided to stay in the united states. we've decided -- now, we can be cute or say we are coming -- in washington they are playing with all sorts of formula. when hit made the statement saying he will ruin free trade. if i'm losing $500 billion with china, $58 billion with mexico in terms of deficits, what do i want that trade for any way. who needs that kind of trade? seriously. who needs that kind of trade. hit admitted i'm a much better businessman than him. i am. we will have better relationships with mexico. we will have better relationships with china. they'll respect us. they don't respect us now. they think we are the dumbest people in the world led by the dumbest people. china in the south china sea is building a massive military force with runways, tremendous complex. they aren't supposed to be doing this. they have no respect for our country. with me, i'm going to rip up those trade deals and make really good ones. we have the cards. remember, i wrote "the art of the deal," which is the number one business selling book of all time. we have the cards. we have rebuilt china with the money they have taken out of our country for many years in all fairness. it is the debatest single theft in the world. you go to china, they have trains that go 300 miles an hour. we have trains that go chug, chug, chug and then have to stop because the track split. they have trains in china and japan. we are like third world. go to our airports, you go to dubai and qatar and different places in asian see airports like you have never seen and come home and land at kennedy or l.a.x. and land at la guardia. la guardia with the potholes all over the place. it is a very sad thing. what is happening to our country is very, very, very sad. we are going to make it a lot better and make it different and get rid of those horrible trade deals. at some point we can't continue to lose $500 billion. we can't continue. you add it up whether it's india, vietnam, whether it's anybody, every single country in the world that deals with us takes advantage of the stupidity of the united states and a lot of it is because they have the right lobivities and negotiators and hire the right people on pennsylvania avenue. they have the right people. and they are negotiating with political hacks, not our best people. almost our worst people. so we are going to make our country so strong. we are going to make it strong militarily. our military is very depleted and we are going to make our military strong. our vets are treated horribly. horribly. we have to get rid of ork and repeal it and -- obamacare and repeal it and replace it. and get rid of common core which is a disaster. you know, in the world educationally, of the 30 countries that they look at, we are number 30 in education, meaning we are the worst. and yet per student cost, number one so far, number two doesn't exist. we are number one in costs and we are number 30 in terms of success. so we are ranked the worst and yet we spend the most. and part of that is common core, it's terrible. part of it is a lot of theft, waste, fraud and abuse. but we are going to straighten it out. when i won new hampshire, they came out with a report, donald trump spent $2.5 million and i won't mention names but other people spent $45 million.... text who? mr. trump: i don't think he likes me, do you agree? wouldn't it be nice -- so i have the lowest expenditure by far and i have the biggest results by far. way, way number one. wouldn't it be nice if we could do that for our country? we can do that. that's what we are going to do. we are going to win so much. you are going to get so tired of winning, you are going to say please, let us have a couple of losses. we are going to make america great again and you'll say ok. thank you very much. i love you very much. go vote on saturday. i love you. thank you. thank you. thank you everybody. you can't always get what you want you can't always get what you want you can't always get what you want but if you try sometimes well you just might find you get what you need oh, baby i went down to the chelsea drugstore to get your prescription filled i was standing in line with mr. jimmy and man, did he look pretty ill we decided that we would have a soda my favorite flavor cherry red i sung my song to mr. jimmy yeah and he said one word to me and that was dead i said to him you can't always get what you want you can't always get what you want you can't always get what you want but if you try sometimes you just might find you get what you need oh, yeah you get what you need oh, baby i saw her today at the reception in her glass was a bleeding man she was practiced at the art of deception well i could tell by her blood-stained hands you can't always get what you want you can't always get what you want you can't always get what you want but if you try sometimes you just might find you just might find you get what you need you can't always get what you want no, no, baby you can't always get what you want you can't always get what you want but if you try sometimes you just might find you just might find you get what you need ... textmr. trump: thank you very much, everybody. this is some turn out. my great honor. a chairman just left, as you probably know. he has been extremely fair. the rnc has been absolutely terrific over the last two months. that is what i have wanted. i have wanted fairness. i do not have to be treated any differently than anybody else. i just wanted fairness from the republican party. we are leading in every single pulpit a new poll came out today where we are over 30%. we have actually hit numbers as high as 35 and 40%. frankly, i felt the absolute best way to win and to beat the democrats and very easily, i think it, beat the democrats no matter who it is hillary or anyone else, and i think hillary will have a hard time frankly with what is happening getting to the starting gate. the best way is if i win the nomination and go directly against whoever they happen to put up. for that reason, i have signed the pledge. which it stands and we will go out and fight hard and we will win. most important like, we will make our country great again, because that is what it is all about. it. i do not need money and i do not want money. this will be a campaign like no other, i think. i am not controlled by lobbyists or anybody. i'm controlled by the people of the country in order to make our country great again. yes, sir.... text mr. trump: i really got nothing. the question was, what did i get for signing the pledge? absolutely nothing, other than the assurance that i will be treated fairly. i have seen that over the last few months. they really have been very fair. no, i have no intention of changing my mind. obvious to all, after i announced, we went up like a rocket ship. no one said i would run and they said he will not run. i did that. the papers, in terms of the company, turned out to be spectacular. it is a great company. i built a great company. all the others turned out to be very well received. the thing that changed is the fact that i went to the number one place very quickly after i signed and after i, in this building, notified everybody that i would be running for president. the biggest thing is that i went early to number one and the rnc has treated me with great respect. that was very important. yes. no, i see no circumstances under which i would tear up that pledge. >> works. i like governor christie, by the way. the chairman asked if he could come up you saw him here in little while ago. i was greatly honored that he did come up, frankly. >> nation, we should be speaking english bear that is how assimilation takes to whether people like it or not, that is how we assimilate and how we go onto to the next phase in the next stage. i am not just talking about spanish. i'm talking about from various parts of the world. that is how they will become successful. integrate. i think it is more appropriate to be speaking english. yes. one of the things i want to do, and i feel strongly, it is a country based on borders and our countries based on laws. when people come into the country illegally, we should not allow that. this is not from south america, this is not from mexico. it is all over the world. when people come a legally, we cannot allow that. i want people to come legally. i want very much to take care of our border because our southern border is a total mess. that has been proven. interestingly, a couple months ago when i announce, i made strong statements about the prime -- the crime and the problems happening. i have been proven right and many people in this audience have actually apologized to me, which i very much appreciate. they have not done it publicly but these are minor details in one day they will. the fact is we are a nation that wants and needs orders. we are a nation that wants and needs and is based on laws. we will make sure that takes place. with that being said, i want people to come into our country legally. i want to have a big, fat, beautiful open-door paradigm want people of great talent to come in, for silicon valley. i want engineers and physicists. i want people with great talent to come into the united states. when people graduate from college, you can be number one from your classic harvard, or number one at yell, or the school of finance, or princeton, or stanford. immediately, if you're not a citizen of the united states, you get thrown out of the country. we want those people to stay. we want people of great talent to be in the united states, to work here, and ultimately to become citizens. i do not know enough about it to comment. what she jailed? i do not know much about it. go ahead. that is absolutely false. i win at golf, that, i can tell you. yes? well, i understand how the system works may be better than anybody. i understand the political system and also very much a system of coming in for illegal immigrants. do not forget, if i did not bring up the subject of illegal immigration, you would not be asking the question or no one would even be talking about immigration. immigration and in particular it illegal immigration, has become a big factor. a lot of bad things have happened with respect to crime since i brought it up. but if i did not bring it up, immigration would not even be a subject that we are talking about and it happens to be a very important subject. i have to say this. it can also be a very positive subject. because i believe so strongly in immigration. we have to stop illegal immigration and we have to look forward to great immigration done in a legal manner. if i did not bring it up, nobody would be talking about it. go ahead. >> because there is no leadership at the top. you have to be able to lead you have to get people into your office, go to them, anyway you want to do it. but you have to be able to leave. there is no leadership at the top and signing executive orders is not the way our country was supposed to be run. go ahead. >> , radio is a very good friend of mine. he is a great eye, an honorable and honest guy and a truly great athlete. he is really a very good friend of mine and i just spoke to him a little while ago and he is so thrilled and happy. tom brady, i think what they have done is terrible. he has been exonerated -- exonerated as i understand it, because i just heard about it. i'm very happy for tom. they are having a rough year, let's face it. go ahead. in europe, they have tremendous problems. people going in and storming. it is a huge humanitarian problem. i will just say this. the united states has tremendous problems of their own. we have infrastructure that we have two fixed or bridges and roads and everything is falling apart. our nation is in such trouble. that is why being a builder and a great and successful builder, i think will greatly help. we have so many of our own problems, including the builder -- including the wall, which we will get built. helped -- health care is a mess. look at obamacare. premiums have gone up 55%. people are saying, this is turning out to be a disaster. deductibles are through the roof . the deductibles on obama care is through the roof. we have a lot of problems and we have to take care of our vets here and we have to build up our military. just the other day, the general said the army is in the worst shape in its history in terms of repaired miss. for them to be in bad shape, with the way we are and the world hating us, you look at hillary clinton, and i have said, she is the worst secretary of state in the history of this country. in all fairness, because of the agreement that is about to be finalized with iran, john kerry may very well take her place. i think that agreement is a disaster for the country, for israel, for the middle east. it will lead to nuclear proliferation. everything about it and we do not even get our prisoners back. you say, who negotiates a thing like that? that will not happen with a president trump here at one or two more questions. -- president trump. one or two more questions. yes. you will see later. they do not want to hear it. yes, go ahead. could you stand up, please?... text mr. trump: all i want them to do -- yes, and say hello to roseann and greg. rate people. i would say simply, i just want to be treated like everybody else. i was a big contributor. no one knows the system, but i was on the other side and i was the elite and i was the fair-haired person. once iran, i was a little bit of an outsider. i became an outsider because i was running and i was not supposed to run p or dime a businessman and people give me great credit as being a great businessman but i'm not supposed to be running for office. the fact is our countries being killed on trade by china, by japan, by mexico. i am not knocking those countries. their leaders are much much smarter than our leaders. they are absolutely killing us. china, taking our jobs, taking our money, taking our base. think of this. we oh china $1.4 trillion. and we are paying them interest. we all japan, with all the cars coming in, the same amount. $1.4 trillion. it is like a magic act. they send the cars in, take our jobs, they do everything and we oh them money. that will not happen with me. it has been a long time. go. well, jeb bush is a very nice man. i will be honest i think he is a nice person. i think he is a very low energy person and i do not think that is what the country needs to i hear he will spend a lot of money on negative advertisements on me. honestly, look, he's getting the money from special interests. he is getting the money from lobbyists and his donors. and they are making him do it because he is crashing in the polls. i do not know what will happen. if you spent $20 million or $25 million on negative ads, i do not know. i know my life will continue. i just do not know. he probably has to do that, although it would not be the way i have done it. one of the things i am most honored about is that so far, everybody that has attacked me has gone down the tubes. you have lindsey graham attacking me p was at 3% and he is now at zero. you have perry attacking me and now he is out of the race. he is at zero. rand paul attacked me. rand paul is down to less than 2% and he attacked me. jeb bush also went down, very big. i don't know. he's going to spend lobbyist money and special interest money. remember this. they have total control over jeb and hillary and everybody else who take that money. nobody knows the system better than me. they have total control. you understand it very well because you have been covering it for a long time. those people putting up those millions of dollars have total control over your candidate. i will tell you this. nobody is putting up millions of dollars for me. i'm putting up my own money. and millions of dollars care when you are in first place, you can collect so much money. i keep turning them down. i feel like, am i a fool? i feel very foolish. when i was in iowa last week, i said, what do you think? a big lobbyists offered me $5 million for my campaign. i said to the crowd in iowa, a great crowd of 4000 people, i said, can i take it, and what you believe, i will not do anything, i promise you and's ready you, when i do anything. they all stood up and said, no, no, do not take it. i am the only self funder, i am putting up my own money. there have been five or six super pac's where people are forming super pac's for trump. i have nothing to do with them. you are not allowed to have anything to do at them. i do not know what they will do it hopefully, if they do something, it will be nice. i do not know anything about them are in a nutshell, i am funding my own campaign and no one else's. when people advertise, and i hope the voters can see this, every negative advertisement they see about me is paid for by lobbyists and special interests. remember that. go ahead.... text mr. trump: our country could be doing much better. all bad trade agreements. an army that is not prepared. we have a military that needs help, especially in these times spirit we have nuclear weapons that, you look at 60 minutes, they do not even work, ok? the phones do not work. they are 40 years old. they have wires that are no good here nothing works. our country does not work. everybody wins except us. we need victories in the country. we do not have victories anymore. our country will be great again, but right now, the country has major problems.... text mr. trump: yes, carly. i was in favor of her being in the debate. i think she should be. i do not like the fact that there are 11 people now as i understand it. they're not getting rid of rand paul or somebody. they should because it is too many people. when you have a 11, you will not hear me or other people talking, and i think that is too bad. i think 11 is a lot of people, but i was very happy she got into the debate. quite frankly, she deserves to be in the debate. >> race. i think it will depend on what happens with hillary clinton. a lot of people think she will not be able to make it legally from a criminal standpoint to the starting gate. i do not know that to be true. i think it depends on what happens with her. i think if she gets out, he will get in. if she stays in, he might not. who knows? >> he was here. he was up in my office. he got the pledge and we are very happy about that. i told him, i said, i do not think if -- i do not think it is appropriate for you to be here. you guys will end up saying he is endorsing trump. that would be inappropriate for him. i would suggest, frankly, i am fine with him not being here. i do not want anyone to think he is endorsing. as far as jeb is concerned, i watched him this morning on television and it is a little bit that. don't forget, he was supposed to win. and he just does not have the energy. what he does have is a lot of money, given to him by special interests, donors, and lobbyist. i just hope if he spends money on advertisements, which he might not. i would spend money on positive ads about himself. if he knocks me, a semi-people leave, and maybe they are at a point where they will not leave because they are fed up with this country, but i think they will go to people other than jeb . go ahead. >> back to work in this country. we have 93 million people that are not in the workforce right now. 93 million. when they give up looking for a job, they take him off the stats. they take him off the statistics. we have 93 million people. we have 50 million people between poverty levels and welfare and our country can be great again to we have to put people back to work. one or two more.... text mr. trump: ok. what i bring my children into the administration? they are very capable. the answer is probably not. the second part is no longer pertinent. back there, go ahead. kanye west, i will never say bad about him. you know why? he loves trump. he goes around saying, trump is my all-time hero. he says it to everybody. kanye west, i love him. maybe in a few years, i will have to run against him. he has been so nice to me. you people have seen because i have been a counterpunch or peer and i hit people when they hit me, only. and kanye west has been so great. i would never say bad about him because he says such nice things about me.... text mr. trump: no, my supporters are really supporting me because i am very competent. they know i will not let china rip us off. i will not let japan rip us off. japan is devaluing the yen, very hard for caterpillar and other companies to compete against their big tractor maker. we will not let this happen anymore. you talk about a trade imbalance. they have, in japan, the biggest ships you have ever seen pouring cars into los angeles. pouring the men. i've never seen anything like it. it's going to and, and are going to like us. it's a bank from china, the biggest bank in the world. i get along great with china. i get along great with japan. i get along great with mexico. i love the people of mexico, i love the hispanics. i have thousands of hispanics right now working for me. over the years i have employed tens of thousands of hispanics, many for mexico. i have unbelievably great relationships and in the package we gave you, you will see there is a poll. . i'm number one with hispanics. number one with hispanics. for our country to be great, we have to be able to make great deals. we are going to be great to the vets. our militaries gabby unbelievable. we are going to get rid of obamacare and come up with something that is much better and less expensive. we are going to repeal it. it should have been out a long time but should never have happened. we are going to take care of our country and bring back jobs and we're going to bring back wealth to the united states so we can afford to save social security, which i will save without cuts, so we can afford to do the kind of things we have to do to make america great again. ladies and gentlemen, thank you very much. here is your pledge. explode. i have been saying what they're doing in china is a bubble waiting to explode and gesture members something, when it's a bubble, we can't be brought down by that bubble. they've done things that caused it. we can't be brought down by that bubble. thank you, everybody. thank you. of indonesia. he's here to see me. one of the most powerful man and a great man and his whole group is here to see me today and we will do great things for the united states. is that correct?... text yes. mr. trump: do they like me in indonesia? yes. mr. trump: speaker of the house in indonesia. thank you very much.mr. trump: i love nashville. i will tell you a story about nashville. it is a special place to me for a special reason. maybe more importantly, we have an incredible woman with us. she is 92 years old. we do not talk about age, but she is 92. she looks magnificent. she has become very famous. where are you? look at her. so beautiful. she just registered to vote for the first time in her life. she has not seen anybody that really did it to her, and for the first time in her life, she just registered to vote and she is going to vote for trump, i think. right? thank you, darling. i really appreciate it. she is on television all over the world now. i have to be nervous even talking to her. thank you very much. i really appreciate it, honey. and everybody appreciates it. there is a big, growing, like leaps and bounds, silent majority out there, and we will take this country back and we are going to make this country so great again and so strong again. i have to tell you. sit down, folks, and joy. enough with the standing up here look at this group. what a group. the all-time record, they turned away thousands of people, i hear. these people have the best real estate, right? i just want to tell you. so years ago, many years ago, i hate to say 40 -- i will not say 40. but close to 40. i came to nashville. the you ever hear of a company -- they were based in nashville, tennessee, and they owned the department store. and i was a young guy and i came from brooklyn and clean -- and queens and i went into manhattan and i did the hotel and some other things that were good. the thing i wanted more than anything was 5th avenue between 57th and 56th street, the tiffany location right next to tiffany. that is what i wanted. i wanted that piece of properly deaf property so badly. you are not supposed to want things that badly because god will get angry at me, right? but i wanted it so badly. it was based in tennessee. i came in and i came to nashville. i met with the heads of genesco, who were very great people, actually. they were having a lot of difficulties. a lot of fighting and everything. i convinced them to sell me the land. and the building. i bought fifth avenue from 57 to 56th streets, surrounding, i bought the rights from tiffany, i bought -- built the trump tower, and it is one of the great billings of the world and great successes. i went to -- when i was here. it was incredible. when you are leading in every poll, they sort of want you to when you are not leading in the polls like so many of these guys, they do not want you at all. we will talk about the polls in a second. but i have a lot of choices this morning and i could've also gone and played golf like the president does all the time, right? but i decided, let's do this. i really chose nashville because hey, the experience is not my biggest deal, but in terms of a deal, it is so important, and it has been such a great -- from the day i build it, it was a home run. it all really took place because of nashville, tennessee. it is an honor to be with you folks, i can tell you. a real honor. guess we are live on cnn and so many different things. it is a difficult when euro's life. you have got to change up your speech. you cannot make the same speech over and over. some of the folks in the room know that. other candidates do not get covered live ever except for the debate. so you know, they had 24 million people on the debate are now they think when a new numbers come out, they will be even substantially higher than that. i would have said they would've had one million or two. i said they had 24 million people are now the second debate, on cnn, that was on fox, maybe i should ask for a lot of money and give the money for charity. all to charity. i said that to the writers of time magazine. they were nice enough to put me on the cover with a nice story. and i sort of thought i set it off the record but they put it in time magazine. so should i ask for charity? maybe a nice nashville charity and american cancer society, and aids research and there are so many good things. alzheimer's, so many big rings going on there. maybe i should ask for a lot of money, so they will get say 2 million people they do not do great, especially, you know the expression -- flies. this is one of the biggest shows in the history of cable television in terms of clinical. in the history of cable television. in all fairness, i should. charity. but, you know, i did say what do you think, should i do it or not? maybe not, i don't know. something to consider. we will all consider it. i saw that they were having the illegal immigrants come in, time to do with children, the dreamers. the jays of children. i said, what about our children, why can't our children be the dreamers? no one ever talks about that. than our vets. our vets are incredible. immigrants, in many cases, not in all cases, but in many cases -- and our veterans, our wounded warriors, these are the greatest people we have. and another thing nice about being able to make speeches without having to hire some guy to write it and keep writing, and then say, good morning ladies and gentlemen, nashville's wonderful"," you know, i can talk about this morning, how people are waiting on line to get in. these are our veterans who got hurt. maybe they would not be -- we would not be here if it was not for them. that is's will. they had a story this morning on fox and cnn and a number of them, where the veterans are treated terribly. they show the desk where there are supposed to be people behind the desk. they show a desk and there is no one there. probably some of you saw it. the veterans are saying, where are these people, and they say what happened, and they say, this happens all the time. no one is even there. and to a cigar wednesday, they have the longest wait in the history, in the history of the veterans administration, for people wanting to see a doctor. if i go to a doctor, and i had to wait nine minutes, i am like, i go crazy. it is true. remember the old days when the doctors used to come to your house? peter remembers that. you have a call on the doctor would carry a little bag like this take, and he would come over to your house, check you out, those do not exist anymore. we are in the age of obama care, where nothing exists. we will repeal and replace obamacare. that, i can tell you. the history. if you go to the doctor's office, men and women are a waiting for days, three days, one was five days. one was five or six days, finally got to see the doctor and a doctor excuse himself because he was going on vacation. can you imagine waiting even a day or a half-day? these people are waiting for five days. the weights are the longest in history. that is the way we are treating the american people. we will change that. we have right now, and you see these phony statistics put out by politicians, basically, all talk and no action politicians. on both sides in all fairness. you know, i'm a republican and i am a conservative, but i'm just as anger with the republicans. when you go to washington, something happens. they become weak. they go to washington. "we are going to stop obamacare, we will do this and that." then they go in there and they go, oh, i made it, darling, i made it to a vote for you. i vote for you. i vote for obamacare extensions. i will do whatever you want me to do, i'm in washington." it is amazing. isn't it amazing question mark don't you agree? it won't happen to me, i promise. and if it does, you're going to let me know about it. but it won't. i promise. they show those phony statistics where we are 5.4% unemployment. the real number, i saw a number that could be 42%, believe it or not. we have 93 million people out of the labor force. of the 93, many of these people want jobs. they quit looking. so if you're looking for a job and you cannot find it, and you stop for a while, after a while, you are like, it is not going to happen but they staff they are employed. we have 93 million people out of the labor force. it is hard to believe. we have 50 million people in poverty. china is taking our money. japan is taking our money. you just lost a big car plants to mexico in tennessee. frontpage, "wall street journal" -- i love this guy. i love this guy. he's just holding this sign up. look at him. i know he's voting for. this is a movement. this is a movement -- i don't want it to be about me. this is about common than, this is about doing the right thing. one of the things that came out in the poll that was really amazing -- in iowa, we are leading day -- those are great people. we had such an amazing evening. it was a happening. we just left alabama, which was unbelievable. 31,000 people in a stadium and it was supposed to for -- it was supposed to pour. the polls just came out in alabama -- leading big in alabama, leading big in iowa. leading tremendously big in new hampshire, leading really big in new hampshire. leading big in florida. i have a governor -- we have a low energy governor and we have a senator, and we are leading big in florida. how do you do that? you have a senator who is sitting and -- i love florida and i'm there a lot, great weather. you have great weather but florida has great weather. big advantage. i'm leading big in florida, but one of the polls came out. south carolina and north carolina, i'm leading really big. in south carolina, a poll came out and we had a statement that my level of popularity or favorable -- i'm the only one that can get a poll. i had one poll where i think i'm 41%. 41%. with 17 people. but there are some people who don't like him. i'm the only one that inns these polls and i get negative publicity. the press -- it's terrible. yesterday, you might have seen me. i was in south carolina. the new york times, very liberal paper -- not everyone can be like us, but it is still the "new york times. i'm on the front page a lot. they had a story about me and they had some low level hispanic commentator. i think i'm going to win hispanic vote. in a vat, i won the hispanic vote. i love the hispanic people. incredible energy, incredible people. i have thousands that work for me and thousands of thousands over the years have worked for me. they are great people and i said i'm going to win and a lot of hispanics here illegally don't want people coming in illegally. it's true. it's true. this paul comes out, i think in south carolina, where we are way up and lindsey graham is at four and i'm at 30. i wrote him a note, congratulations i'm beating you in your home state by only 26 points. what who cares. this -- i think i'm a nice person and i want to help people -- women's health issues to me are very important. to jump bush it was not important because he did not want to fund them and then he says i misspoke. i really want to be a nice person and i am a nice person but it's going to be an election taste on competence. we are tired teeing the patsies for everybody. i think it is time. but in the poll -- in another act of political magic, trump managed to flip his favorability rating from negative -- nobody said it, nobody reported it, from negative to positive. i have this photographic wreath -- i want to be sure -- if i use a word incorrectly -- favorability rating from negative to positive in one poll during the span of a month -- a feat that a highly respected pollster called astounding. nobody else wrote about it. that defies any rule in presidential politics i've ever seen said this highly respected man. he flip it from 20% to 52% in one month and he said he's never seen that before. and you know what? that's because people have heard this. they say i've made a tremendous amount of money. i have had tremendous success. that's the kind of thinking we need in the country. whatever it is. but, to me, that statement was more important than literally killing everybody in the polls. we were much higher, more than double everybody. you saw back when a p act just came out and that was an amazing poll. much, much higher. i was double and quadruple many of these candidates. the reason is people in this country are smart. they don't believe a lot of what they see in the media. why are they even saying it? you would say if someone is good for the country -- i'm going to be good for the country because we are going to make great deals. our country doesn't win anymore. you would think even a liberal person or a democrat -- somebody is going to make the country -- why do they fight mark would think they would say let's do it , it's good for all of us. we go now 19 trillion. when obamacare kicks in, which is really kicking in in 16 -- you want to see bad deficits? you are really going to see it go up. that has a huge impact not only on the jobs but the deficit itself. you have seen it yourself -- premiums have gone through the roof, right? the deductibility, unless you are close to death, you are never going to use it. it is so high. the premiums are up 30%, 40%, 50% and more. it is a disaster and it's going to cost the country a fortune. so we have to do something about it. we have to do something importantly about it. and i have to tell you -- i won't inch and names, some of them, when they hear my name -- we have a great reporter today from the "wall street journal" who came down -- she said some of them when they hear your name, it looks like they are ready to explode. it's true. number one, they look bad because you remember the beginning -- three or four month ago, they were saying he's just having fun. i went to a great school, i did everything that's great. i came out, i made a fortune. i then did a book called "the art of the deal was quote and many best sellers. that one is probably the best-selling business book of all times. who is right that? almost everybody. i jokingly say, but i needed -- the bible trumps it by a long way. i said it in iowa, and it's true -- nothing tops of the bible -- many best sellers and then i do "the apprentice." it's one of the most successful shows ever on television and nbc renewed the apprentice. they came to my office, the head of comcast, great guys -- i will use names, i will just say steve -- she's one of the best in the country. he came up with the heads of nbc and they said months ago, they said, donald, we are renewing the apprentice, you have to do it. i said honestly, i'm running for president. i want to make our country great again. and they did not believe me. i said it four times. nobody believed i was going to run. nobody. my wife believe me, but now she does. she said, if you are going to run, you are going to do great because people love you. she said they love you but i don't want to bring -- i don't want to brag. thank you. if you -- the nbc guys come up -- terrific people. i have a great relationship with nbc for 12 years. we have many number ones and "the apprentice" continues to do great. they want to renew it #burnett calls up -- he says i don't believe it -- you are not taking a renewal. i said that's right, i'm going to run for president. he said no but he doesn't take a written will. it is unheard of -- primetime television, two hours. are you crazy? i said, mark, i've had to do this. we can save our country. we can save our country. so nbc renewed it. i told them i'm not doing it and they finally believed me when i actually announced. they don't like me anymore. it's amazing. that's too bad. thank you. the funny thing about the apprentice -- there have been in copies. every single one of them failed. so a reporter said why do you think that is? i said because i'm special. i was kidding. i sort of meant it, to be honest, but i was sort of kidding and they wrote it -- it sounds good when you say it but it looks bad in writing. i had a great experience, so here i am -- great, great brain, great success, i felt a great company, do the apprentice, tremendous success. when i did the apprentice come a certain critics said it will never be successful because to have a big hit, you remember that first -- it had one of the highest ratings ever. remember how that was? to have a great success, you have to have women. i saved the article -- like harry truman saved it -- it said truman loses and he actually one. it said trump can never succeed on television cousin why would women want to watch donald trump? i said am i so bad? and it turned out women were the biggest base. so i save those things. but, no matter how you cut it, we can do something so incredible. -- and honestly, it's going to be hard and it's going to be a lot of work. obama always leaves the white house. inc. of it -- you are elected president -- why would you want to leave? i think i would never leave. how cool is that? he leaves to go to some place and go fundraisers -- maybe there's a rule against it -- i would do fundraisers in the white house. he and his wife left -- right next door in burbank, california, they left a couple of hours different. one took air force one, one took a beautiful boeing -- two different planes, going to the same location, going to the same airport to do different shows and i say why? why are not -- why aren't they flying on the same place -- on the same plane. i know how much those costs because i have one. more important, the time and energy -- but i would have said eleanor whoever is doing the show, let's do it from the white house. i won't spend any money from the taxpayers. think about it. and the funny thing, the funny thing is whoever the host is would like it that are -- we are doing our show live from the white house. we don't pay any money, we don't have to fuel up air force one. do you see what it costs to travel in these things? your closing down her bank california. every time obama comes to manhattan. what's going on, you can't move? they've close down the city. he could do it from washington. he could do it in my new hotel -- i'm building -- it's true. i'm building an incredible hotel on pennsylvania avenue for the old post office. i got it from the obama administration. one of the most heavily sought after building in the history of the general services administration -- they owned it and they made the decision. we are building this beautiful hotel directly between congress and the white house. it is going to open just in time -- listen to this 1 -- we are under budget and ahead of schedule. do you ever hear that from government? it will be great. come in, use it and go back to the white house. you say to your self -- it's a mindset. more importantly than the travel, we have so many things we have to do -- you don't want to waste time. you've got to make deals. i've got the greatest dealmakers in the world -- carl icahn, an incredible guy. great dealmaker. i've got some of the best dealmakers in the world. they are all calling me -- the best in the world. i know the best. i also know guys who are overrated and i know guys you haven't heard of that are honestly phenomenal. i know a lot you have heard of that are overrated. but i have the best in the world. they don't want money. they are worth billions of dollars. but when i say carl icahn, handle china. we are going to make a great deal. because that's what happens. we are going to take back our trade. if you look at china, if you look get japan -- i was in los angeles -- i saw the biggest ships i've ever seen with cars pouring out, one after another, made in japan. it doesn't help us. where does it help us mark we sell them beef. then they don't want it -- do you ever see what's going on? it goes over there and it's perishable, so by the time it gets over there, they turn around and we don't want it and they have cars coming from these massive ships and they just pour off the ships. how stupid are we? i leave in free trade. but i have to be fair trade. when you look at japan, they taken money up here and we give them money down here. we give nothing -- it's peanuts. balance it out, fellas. you have to balance it. a friend of mine is a great manufacturer. china -- it's probably the greatest theft in the united states. they've taken our money, they've taken our jobs, they have taken so much, and they are creating a bubble and we are so intertwined now that the bubble is going to explode. i've made so much money dealing with china. i've made hundreds of millions, probably aliens dealing with china. the bank of america building in san francisco, i own part of that -- people say trump is only worth $5 billion -- they don't even know my numbers. they say we haven't been able to look at about 400 of his companies. they said he will never run. so they say i will never run. but i'm running. then i announced -- they say he will never file his form. that's a single pay where you're signing your life away. it has to be done within 14 days. i signed by form. they said he will never foot in his financials. and you have like 90 days or something and they said he will ask for extensions because he's probably not as rich as people think. but actually i'm much richer. i put in my financials -- it's true. forbes and another group said we don't know what these companies are. i put in these massive financials and i wanted to brag -- it's such a great company i built. they said he will never put in his financials. very little debt, tremendous value and great assets -- iconic assets. i have some of the greatest real estate in the world and i'm very proud of it. they say he will never file. and they have boxes. it wasn't meant for somebody like me. they have these little boxes and they say is it worth or does he make a million dollars? the last box is $50 million or more. i have a lot of old things worth more than that and a lot of assets worth more than that. 50 million or more. i think it is 23. i check -- i think it's 23. they will kill me if i'm wrong, but i'm not sure. i think it's like 23 -- do you know what some of these guys do to try to marginalize you? they added up -- 23 50's. some of them are worth a billion dollars. some of them are worth more than a billion. they will take fifth the million dollars for a living that might be worth a billion dollars and they add them up and say he's worth $2.9 billion. this is the press. it's not meant for a guy like me but with all of that, the statements are so good. and last night was incredible. we had an amazing event in massachusetts. look at this -- what the hell are you doing in nashville? what is that? i must have dropped those people with me. what are you doing here? so, here i am -- ice went millions of dollars on jet fuel. a lot of money. but somebody puts up a sign, $100 to go to this thing. i don't know who did it. all over the place, i'm spending millions of dollars. i'm turning down millions -- i don't want your money. somebody put a sign up talking about a $100 contribution which you did not have to make. it's all over the internet -- trump is asking for $100. i fly my plane someplace and it costs a fortune. the money i raised last night goes toward paying off and expense or something -- guy who had it -- this great guy -- really successful guy. you know him -- bernie. he will sell you a car any day of the week. 2000 people showed up. they put up a sign -- i don't want the money. i've might like $4 million or five ilion dollars, that's hard to turn down. most of the people came in free and i and that with this big story -- trump accepting contributions. i got so angry at my people because somebody put up a sign saying $100. and honestly -- it's peanuts. it doesn't mean anything. but they use it to try to marginalize. they always do. the bottom line is i am self funding my campaign. i don't need money. with that being said, this money comes in and it's not a lot of money, but it is great money. peter will send me some money, but a woman sent me seven dollars with a beautiful letter from georgia. another's person -- and other persons at me $12 -- it doesn't amount to a lot, but that i do like coming in because they invest in the campaign. how do i take it seven dollars check and send it back to the person who sends it to me? i'm sorry, i don't want your money? i want them to invest and they are not going to tell me to do this or not do this for china and they gave me $5 million. i had a big lobbyist who wanted to give me $5 million and i turned him down. i turned him down and i see this story on cnn last night and it was disgusting -- this sign -- $100. somebody does the sign -- it was a beautiful sign if you want to know the truth. they are doing this day thing all day long -- we have this incredible event and they destroyed it by trying to marginalize and that's the press, that is the media. the criminal media -- there is some truth to it. a lot of times, they know it's wrong, but i want to tell you -- it's so important than last night was such an incredible event, it had to be a record for a house. the guy has a beautiful house in put up a tent, but we had 2000 people. it had to be a record. the spirit in that group, the spirit in alabama was so incredible. the spirit in our last meeting in iowa. don't forget -- you know what i love? i'm leading with the tea party big. i love the tea party tea party people stand up and take a bow. you have not treated fairly. you have not been treated fairly. people talk about the tea party and talk about marginalizing -- at least i have a microphone and i can fight back. the tea party people are incredible people. a work hard and they love their country and all the time by the media. -- they get beat up all the time by the media. you don't know the power that you have. the tea party -- and you can call it anything you want. i don't care about names. the tea party has tremendous power. it democrats, it's for people, it's rich people, it everybody. it's evangelicals. i'm a protestant, i'm a presbyterian. i had a recent poll and these polls are great -- guys like jeb bush and hillary higher bolsters and pay them hundreds of thousands of dollars. what do you have to do that for? i'm rich, i could hire 100 pollsters -- why should i pay? one once like 150 dollars a month. they are arrogant guys in a ink they can tell you what to say and you have to be politically correct -- i don't have time. it's true. i don't have time. it takes a lot of time to be politically correct. you saw the anchor baby thing. it's the same network, cnn again. he said you know the name anchor baby is very insulting. i said what would you call it and he gave me like nine words -- i said how can i say that? it's too long. it's anchor baby. and then jeb bush gets caught because he's such a nice person -- honestly. if you want a nice person, you should vote for jeb. the country's going to go to hell, but we will talk about that. if you want a nice person -- jeb has a memo that he signed of basically a politically correct memo -- don't say this or don't say that. one of the things -- never use the term "anchor baby." all, he's using this term -- and when i used it, nobody criticized me. they expected it. with him, they just killed him. then he blamed it on the asians. did you hear that eschew mark and the new york times did an editorial -- how dare you attack the asians. he said that agents come in and they have anchor babies and now the asians all hate them. it's true. but the asians love me and i love them. i love them. so he has a memo and he signs the memo and it says don't use this term and now he's using it because he has to because think of it -- i want to build a wall. it's so easy. had all of these orders -- the reporters were on my side, but this guy starts screaming, so i had liberal people from cbs -- this guy stands up and starts screaming. i got a lot of credit for the way we handled it. i didn't do anything, except -- "the times" said donald railed at him and screamed at him. i did not rail at him, but he was screaming at me. worse than that, they said i wear a to pay. i proved it -- i won't bring anybody yet, but i don't. but ink about it -- i'm on the front page of the new york times -- think about it, i'm on the "front -- i'm on the front page of the "new york times" saying they call them something, which means that he wears a to pay. i'm on the front page and i can't even talk about it. they said i was essentially screaming at this guy from univision, who i happen to be suing for $500 million. they did not mention that. they also did not his daughter works for hillary clinton. you didn't know that? they did not mention that. they said i wear a to pay and i was screaming. then we let him come back and we had a nice talk and he seemed like a nice guy -- he was a very emotional and. he said you can't will the wall because you can't do it. 2000 years ago, in china -- we always get back to china. 2000 years ago, the great wall of china. this is a serious wall. this is a wall you do not go through easy. they built a wall 2000 years ago that is the team thousand miles. think of that. that's a serious wall. this was 2000 years ago. it took them 500 years to build it -- it took a long time. they had no tractors. they did not have caterpillars. today, we would use commodities because they are cheaper. they devalue the yen so much -- caterpillar stock is down. we will change that, believe me. but they built this will. we have 2000 miles as opposed to 13,000, but you don't need it. some you have natural landscape -- 10 years ago, everybody wanted the wall else. hillary wanted the wall. i'm not a rendering guy. a lot of these guys come in with renderings and it never gets built. i'm the opposite. i get it else. one of the reasons it could not get elders they could not get an approved environmental impact study -- one of the reasons they could not get it built was because they could not get an approved environmental impact study. they could not get it approved to build a wall and they are telling people we have a legal immigrants -- you see it with san francisco, with so many people last night in nasa chooses -- i met some unbelievable families who have been devastated by illegal immigrants who come into the country until members of their family. a female, a veteran got raped, sodomized, tortured and killed. raped, sodomized, tortured and killed. 66 years old, by an illegal immigrant that they caught. luckily, but this is what we have. we have stupid people in our government and we have people pouring across the border and we have great border patrol people. i went there -- that's why the hat is so successful. everybody wants to buy the hat. the white when did not sell so well but the red one is hot. crazy thing. i went to the border and i got to know the people and i saw people and it is rough stuff. when i first came in and did my opening statement that i was running for president, i talked about illegal immigration. rush limbaugh, who i think is a terrific guy. rush limbaugh said trust -- trump has received more incoming and in any -- and then i think he's going to apologize and he doubles down. i got credit. they thought i was going to apologize stop i don't mind apologizing, but i have to make a mistake to apologize, but i was right. so for two weeks, i took incoming, meaning that media. i said if it's going to be like this for the next year and a half, i don't think i can make it. many of the people who talk that way only because of me is everyone talking about illegal immigration. they wouldn't even be talking about it. we are going to get the gang members and baltimore and chicago. one of the first things i'm going to do is get rid of those gang members. look at what's going on in chicago and ferguson -- we are going to get rid of those tank members so fast. we can be really tough. those police are tough cookies. we need law and order. we need law and order. they allowed in that first night in baltimore, they allowed that city to be destroyed. they said it back 35 years and one night because the police were not allowed to protect people. we have incredible law enforcement in this country and the head of the police in chicago is a person i know. he's a phenomenal guy. he can stop gangs if he's allowed to stop them. we have some incredible people but we have to be tough and we have to be smart. you are going to have that apple and it is disgusting and it is horrible, but it's a tiny percentage. the good work does not get shown on television, which is 99.9%. the good work with the police is 99.9%. and it is horrible -- i agree. you were sick when you looked at some of them just like i was, but we need law and order. we need our police. they do a phenomenal job but they are afraid to do anything. i won't mention names, but i know cities where police are even afraid to talk to people because they want to retire and have their pension. then you wonder why there is crime and our cities. we need a whole new mindset. we have to build up our military. we have to make our military so strong. we have to make our military so powerful and strong that we never have to use it. we have to focus on what we have -- ukraine. i want ukraine to be healthy, vibrant, and good. but ukraine, germany -- we are sending f-22's -- the newest fighters, the best and the world. we want to stand alongside of them, but why are we leading the fight? putin hates obama. i think we would get along great if you want to know the truth. he has no respect for our president and our president doesn't like him. but i would get along with these people. every country is ripping us off. in the iran deal, russia is a big that fishery because they are going to sell iran missiles with the money we give to iran, so one of the biggest beneficiaries as russia. think of it -- let's take a few of these things and then i'm getting the hell out of here and going back to new york. maybe i will go to the grand ole opry tonight. can i do that? this is not a politician speaking. i love country music. i love it. trace adkins, right? who else one on the apprentice? john rich. mike kids love those two guys. and who else did really well? went black. clint black. i said who the hell is he? i did not know who he was and is that she was not a dig name. his record or album or whatever you call it now days. whatever it was, it went to number one. it came to me the next year and he came in second and then he came in first. he's a fantastic i stop these are great people. these are great people. he came to me and he said last year i couldn't get into the show and this year i'm posting it all because of you. right? those three guys are great. we've got to make our country so strong. we have to make our country rich again. a person came up to me and said that's not nice. what's not nice is mark to say we're going to make our country rich. we are a debtor nation. we know $19 trillion. china, we 01 $.4 trillion. they come and take our job, they take our base and their factor and we oh them one point $4 trillion. how do you do that? it's like a magic act. japan sells as cars by the million and make a fortune. they sell us cars by the millions and we oh them the exact same amount. we oh them $1.4 trillion. how come if they are selling us cars we oh them money? if we buy all these cars, i'd we have the money? because they take all of that money that we make and by our bonds. they take the interest and we oh them money. it's not even going to be hard. obama never read "the art of the deal." somebody said -- where is sharon -- she gave me such a hard time. where the hell is she eschewed mark you can have both of them stand up actually. where are they? sharon is great. did they go after her. where is my other sharon. get the hell off stage. run and these guys -- give me a break, it's not going to happen. one guy -- john mclachlan. you ever watch that? i like him. one of the people said donald trump is a great businessman, but he will never make it as president. and john mclachlan, he's a guy who i like -- i never met him but he's sitting uo there and he got angry. he says why wouldn't he make it mark he's been a tremendous success at everything he's done. i go all over the world and see his name. he has had great access. he said he is a man of great achievement. why wouldn't he make it? i thought it was so nice and the other guy just sort of shut up. you need somebody of great achievement. i don't have to worry about obama care. i take such good care of my employees. we have great plans. my employees are lucky. they had the lotto. i take care -- education, health care, my people are very happy, but i've done this for a long time and i've seen up and downs. i've seen market crashes and friends of mine go bankrupt. i've never gone bankrupt. they say trump goes and grabs -- these people -- when other people do that, they do it all the time, it's called using your head. it's called using the laws. i did a good job in the debate when chris matthews so angrily -- i do it every great businessman does. one company was sort of interesting. a friend of mine had it -- a good guy and the banks just were killing him. thanks can be mean. we have to teach them how to behave. this guy -- i did him a favor and called up and said do this, do that, we won't do that -- you are making a mistake. it was a little complicated -- immediately i said don't do this. i threw it into a chapter and they come out with trump files bankruptcy. they see me walking down the street and they go pay -- they go hey. i'm good at that stuff but you have to use the laws to your advantage. atlantic city -- caesars went bankrupt. caesars filed for chapter 11. nobody cares. and you are right. everybody in atlantic city -- the financial media gives me great credit because i have a vision for things. i said don't go into iraq even though i'm a very militaristic person. i said you are going to destabilize the middle east. what do you get? $2 trillion, thousands of deaths like 5000 -- wounded warriors who i love all over the place. they ran is taking over -- iran is taking over iraq. the oil they don't get, isis is getting. what do we get? nothing. we got far less than nothing. i had vision in 2004 -- reuters -- trump says don't do iraq. i'm much more militaristic than bush and even the brother but you have to know when to use it and when. with atlantic city, seven years ago, i got out. i should get credit for vision. normally i would not say this, but i need your frickin' votes. do you understand? i have great credit and i got out. most places when i grabbed, but i made a lot of money in atlantic city and had a great time. but i gave a great dancer and thought i solved it. we are going to do things that are going to make you so proud if i win. we are going to have victories again. last night in front of the audience -- i've never said this before -- last night in front of the audience, i said we are going to have so many victories -- we're going to win on trade and militarily, just having great strength that nobody is going to mess with us. so many victories, in fact, you may get tired of victories. everyone stood up and said no, no, we want to keep winning. if i win, we will have victories. we will win on trade. we will win on health care. we will win on everything. i will protect your social security without cuts. we are going to have something that is so special and i told the -- i will say at once -- we will make america truly great once again and thank you very much. thank you, everybody. thank you, all day long, he has been holding. thank you ari much. -- thank you very much. give me that. ... textmember lael brainersd on the u.s. economic outlook. now, republican presidential candidate donald trump speaking at a campaign rally in redding, california. residents of that state, along with five others, will vote in primaries this tuesday. this is about one hour and 10 minutes. mr. trump: this is amazing. thank you folks. redding, we love redding. thank you very much. i think it's 104 degrees. is everybody ok? if anyone not feeling well, come up here, we have plenty of water to share. this is hot out. so i want to thank you all. you know, they got some very bad news, the worst jobs report in 6 and a half years, ok. i don't know if you saw that. 30,000 jobs. it is going the wrong way. they have been kidding themselves. they are playing games. it's going the wrong way. they had a labor participation rate, it fell to 62.6%, which is one of the worst in many, many, many years. so we know what we're doing. we are going to turn it around and make america great again, bring back our jobs, bring back our jobs and bring it back fast. so you remember the 1237 and they said, i don't think trump will reach it. maybe at the convention. i said we are going to reach it easy. who would have thought we reached it long before hillary clinton? she can't close the deal. she can't close it. she's working hard and can't close it with bernie. good old bernie. we love our bernie. i tell you what, what a mess she's in. and the people with bernie don't want to vote for her and they want to vote for trump. you saw that poll. because whether you like bernie or not, he's right about one thing, trade is a disaster for our country. that's the one thing he is right about. the trade deals that our country makes ourare an absolute disaster. hello. look at all those people over there. this is crazy. wow! i wish these camera guys would spin it around. they are so dishonest, 100 something degrees out here to have this number of people. are we happy to be here? wayne and chris, they are great people. they gave me the earliest endorsement i think they have ever given to anybody. national rifle association. we are going to protect your 2nd amendment. we will protect your 2nd amendment. i love you, too. nice guy over there. big strong guy. i love you. so, look, we have had an incredible period of time june 16 we started and it's been an amazing ride. all over the world they are talking about it, it's a movement. they said they have never seen anything like it. the biggest crowds of anybody by far. the other night, bernie had 3,000 and i had 17,000. never mentioned the number of people and bernie has had a massive crowd of 3,000 people. i tell you what, the press is so biased against us, but i believe we have the numbers. i really believe it. you know, they used to call it the silent majority, now i think we are going to call it the noisy majority. we are not silent. in san jose, we had an amazing crowd. it was packed and it was incredible and at the basketball on, which is that area, the san francisco game, and we had some crowd. it was absolutely incredible. and it was a love fest inside, no problems whatsoever. we went on and spoke and had a good time for an hour and i said i want to get you guys so you could see the warriors, who won. but i wanted to get them out and i said we don't want to get out. we had an amazing time. that was it and we wrapped up and everybody was cheering like crazy forever and they walked out and they get accosted by a bunch of thugs burning the american flag, burning the american flag. you know what they are? they're thugs. build that wall. you're right. than anybody that has ever done this before. think of it. more than dwight eisenhower. i mean he won the second war, more than ronald reagan who we all love, more than anybody and we have a lot of endorsements and we are very popular within the party and polls are coming out showing we are doing well and winning. the fox poll came out a few days ago and we are winning by three points. we are beating hillary. did you see that phony speech she made yesterday. and people think, oh, did she speak well. she has a teleprompter here and there. do you notice, donald trump is a bad man. donald trump has a bad tone. we need a tough tone in this country. we don't need this kind of stuff anymore. she said, i don't like the tone of donald trump, that was a while ago. she said i don't like his tone. and i'm saying to myself, they are chopping off people's heads and killing us at the border. our country's a mess. we have the worst jobs report in 6 1/2 years. our labor participation rate, you are talking about decades of a disaster. people are making less money now than they made 18 years ago and working harder. and i'm supposed to have a nice tone. hello, everybody. how's everything. we are going to bring back our jobs. we are going to take our country back. we are going to run it properly, folks. and you are going to be proud of your country again. and you know they do research. u.s.a. u.s.a. u.s.a., i like that. i like that. so california, good place. i'm going to play heavy in california. i think we can win it. i mean we get crowds like this all over the place and didn't even give you a hangar. they don't give hangars anymore. but it's amazing the kind of reception that we have. and every magazine and every newspaper whether they like us or not and i say folks, i'm a messenger. am i doing a good job? one of the pundits told me the other day and said you know, it doesn't matter whether you win or lose, the job you've done is so incredible. you came from nowhere and never did this before and fighting 17 governors and senators and professional politicians, i have been fighting them all my life and i like fighting, but you have been fighting these people and week after week you are down to 16, you are down to 14, you are down to 9 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. and they said it hasn't been anything like it. it doesn't matter whether we win or lose. it will be in the history books forever. they said it never happened. bill o'reilly said, the single greatest political phenomenon he has seen in his life. and i'm saying what the hell are we talking about? we have to win. we have to win. we didn't come this far to lose. we are going to play california because i think hillary is pathetic and should be in jail for what she did with her emails. she should be in jail. she should be in jail for what she did with those emails. she wants to play a little tough. you know, she polls it, every word she said was polled. i don't have teleprompters. it's called up here and memory and called other things. and i speak from here and from the heart, ok, because that's what we need. and every single thing she said yesterday was polled and her people wrote it out and don't see the teleprompters. they said oh, they didn't know that. she's reading the script and she would read a line and phony audience. she would have the phony audience and the guy in the back going now and they clap. and these pundits -- if i ever did that, i would be run out of town. but for hillary is ok. what she said was so many lies. like he wants japan to get nuclear weapons. i don't want them to get nuclear weapons. i want them to pay us the kind of money we have to have so we don't lose money protecting japan and germany and saudi arabia. we have to do this. and south korea. i mean we are protecting south korea from the maniac in the north and we're protecting them. he actually said -- you know they said would you mind having negotiations with north korea. no problem. who the hell cares. i'm not going there. but you have a negotiation. they said we will never talk. how stupid are these people? they have been selling our country down the tube. they have been spending money, who knows if the talks work, maybe they will, maybe they won't. and putin said donald trump is a genius and next great leader of the united states. they wanted me to disavow what he said. how dare you call me a genius. how dare you call me a genius, vladimir. wouldn't it be nice we would get along with russia. i'm not talking about weakness. i know about negotiating. hillary clinton is a weak person. she is totally scripted. she is a thief and she should be in jail for what she did to our national security. i mean the only problem is i would like to run against her, if you want to know the truth. she should be. what she has done is terrible. so, look, we have -- i can't believe it. look at all the people out there trying to get in. look at those people. look at that. look at all those people. they couldn't have pulled these fences a little bit further out? you don't want them to come in. you have enough people here. that's the way life works. life is vicious. so when we talk about the different attributes, you look at the word tone, but i'll use a different word, bernie sanders said that hillary clinton has bad judgment. she has bad judgment. we are in a cyberworld. this is now a cyberworld. russia is knocking us off. china is knocking us off. they are stealing so much. what china's doing with our intellectual property, stilling billions. we aren't doing anything about it, during her regime. you look at what's going on. here is hillary all loused up with a simple email system and asked why did she do it? i understand why she did it, because she's a thief. i get why she did it. but talk about judgment, how do you have a president with that kind of bad judgment. she could have used the government stuff. she could have taken the government server, assume everyone is listening. i always do every time i pick up a phone. you sue their ass off if they are and drop a little lawsuit on them and make them pay. but you know what? for her to do what she did puts our country at risk. she's secretary of state. she's got people like huma, anthony weiner, wife of anthony weiner, how would you like anthony weiner to be having all these secrets. guess what, she tells anthony weiner. i know anthony weiner. i don't want him knowing anything. and i never ever want him to tweet me. does anybody want him to tweet? she's married to anthony weiner and goes home -- that's the way life works. she goes home. who the hell wants that. this is not right. it's not right. general petraeus has suffered greatly and many people suffered greatly for doing far less than what hillary clinton did. and you know what? to me, as the woman just said, but she got away with it. it looks like she got away with it -- unless i win. have an attorney general and the attorney general is going to take a look and see, because you know there's a five year or six-year statute of limitations. so she really is running for some very important reasons for herself. look, when somebody does something so wrong as that, they have to pay the consequences. she put our nation in difficulty. did you see her i.t. specialist, he's taking the fifth. the word is he's ratting her out like you wouldn't believe it, but they want to try and favor, -- save her. that's not the way the government is supposed to work. they aren't supposed to be trying to save her but supposed to be doing the right thing. but the press never lets up and it never follows that story. it never follows the real story. so do you remember in iowa, i made a speech. and i said let's raise some money for our vets. and i figured we would raise half a million, two million. we end up raising almost $6 million. and i got bad publicity. can you imagine? this can only happen to me. i have more calls and more e-mails and more tweets two -- @realdonaldtrump. if i to eat something cnn and , fox says donald trump, i'm sitting there tweeting, donald trump has issued a major statement. you know we have like almost 9 million on twitter. and similar number on facebook. on instagram, a million and a half and soon going to be 20 million people. that's like owning the "new york times" without the lawsuits. and then they say, you shouldn't -- my opponents, they have three people, they said you shouldn't use your twitter. i say why? that's like in golf don't use , your driver. we use anything you have to do to win. we are going to win. we got to win. but it's true. we raised almost $6 million and the dishonest press, and they are so dishonest, not all of them but many of them, they are so dishonest, if i would have done nothing, it would have been fine. i said let's raise some money for the vets. i'm glad i did it. i got more thank u.s. from the -- thank yous from the vets. we gave to many, many groups. they wake up and get $100,000 in the mail, $250,000. one of them got $1.1 million and they are great. they are great people and they appreciated it. but they put the negative spin on everything. no matter what we do -- you know it's funny. the "new york times" puts me on -- get a medic, please. ok. you just take it easy, darling. it's hot out here, right. right over here, medic. right over here. we love you. we love you. some of these people got here five, six hours ago. give them a hand, by the way. great job. thank you, darling. she looks like she's in good shape. thank you very much. that's true, the police, the medics, firemen and the job they do and they are not appreciated. they are going to be appreciated again, folks. is she good? everything good? that's good. that's good. thank you, honey. so we're going to do things that haven't been done in a long time. we are going to start winning again. we don't win anymore. we don't win anymore. even a report that you see, it was like a bombshell. they expected 150,000 jobs. turns out to be 38,000 jobs. and they are bad jobs. people say we don't have good jobs. our good jobs are moving to mexico along with the companies that are moving there. they are moving to china where china is making all our products and devaluing their currency. i had a meeting today and must have had 50 chinese people. people from china or formerly from china. and they all love trump. and cnn was there, jake tapper was there and we had an amazing time. and john dickerson, also a good guy, he was there from cbs and they looked outside and said who are all those people. people from china that are endorsing trump. and nobody could believe it. i don't blame the chinese government. and i don't blame the mexican government. i want our government to be smart. i want our government to get away with the kind of things they get away with. but we have leaders that don't have a clue. and hillary clinton's at the top of the list. she's incompetent. let's face it. first of all, she's always got problems, whitewater, impeachment, lie, he didn't have sex with that woman. two months later, he's well, he didn't. these are lying people. we don't need another four years of the clintons. it's a mess. it's a mess. so what we're going to do is we are going to have a strong temperment, not that weak temperment. i don't like his temperment. i don't like his tone. there is nobody was a better temperament than me. i have a temperament for winning. i have won all my life, and we are going to start winning for you. temperment is very important. it's very, very important. but we need strength. we don't need these weak people. they talk about, well, i think his temperment isn't good. i guess they do polls. they say how can we get trump. i believe i have the greatest temperment there is and the temperment that this country needs at this time. i could slough it off and say, i have a wonderful temperament. i'm a wonderful person. i have a tough temperament. but we need a tough temperament. we need a tough temperament. now, my temperament is totally controlled, so beautiful. i built an unbelievable company. i did so many great things. i just read about a school where the clintons are involved that got $16 million, and it is a scam. why aren't they sued? they scammed the school. why aren't they being sued? it's a big story, but these people don't want to talk about it. temperament is a very important word. we need toughness in town. we need toughness in temperament. frankly, i really believe this, i think that hillary clinton is unfit to lead our country, certainly at this time. i think she's unfit. she doesn't have what it takes. you are going to go through four more years -- i call her obama light. it will be at least as bad, and maybe worse. think about what i said. they are scamming us with cyber, living in a cyber world, and here she is all screwed up with the e-mails. she doesn't know what the heck is going on. you talk about composure. you talk about temperament. you talk about all these things. who would be so stupid, to do what she did with her e-mails? i mean, who would be so stupid? so we are going to turn this country around. we are going to do things that are going to make you so proud of your president, but much more importantly, so proud of your country again. because when people say, ideal with all these countries, i have great deals in all these countries, so many deals. they say, they laugh at us. they say, what's going on? they don't even believe it. even the people from china this morning, you will see because i think it will be on cnn, probably on cbs, you'll see, they say, mr. trump is right. we can't, they cannot believe what they get away with. i have the largest bank in the world from china, the largest bank in the world, master bank, a tenant in one of my buildings. i know the people. they are sort of friends of mine. they tell me, we don't believe we can way with this. they know me. i don't know if they know i will be reviewing this, but they say, we can't believe, we can't believe we get away with it. so we are going to turn it around. now, a couple of things. we need strong borders. you got to have borders. either that, or we don't have a country. 16,500 border patrol agents two weeks ago endorsed me. the first time they have ever endorsed a presidential candidate. i asked, what perfect room to ask, as opposed to some consultant who wants to suck you dry with fees. they know less than that beautiful young woman standing there. all they know is how to get fees. i asked, let me ask you, how important is the wall? tell me, how important is the wall? i feel better about it. they said, it's vital, especially in terms of stopping the drug traffic pouring through the borders. but a real well. you see the wall they have? they take a pogo stick and they go right over the wall. they actually built a little rant, and they go over it with a car loaded up with drugs, then come back over the same ramp. there won't be any ramp with my wall, folks. it will be a serious wall. a real deal will. it will be way up there. a big, beautiful wall. maybe someday they will name it after trump, but i would much rather have a statue in washington, d c. we are going to build that will. mexico is going to pay for the wall. we have a trade deficit with mexico of $50 billion a year. $58 billion. that doesn't include the drugs pouring across the border. yet we have companies moving into mexico. they just took the world golf championship at of miami and brought it to mexico, and people of miami are furious. they brought it into mexico, signing a six-year deal. they take everything, because we allow it to happen. but we're not going to allow it. i used the example of carrier air-conditioning in indiana. we won indiana big. that was going to be the firewall for other people running, and it was a firewall for me. i won a landslide. thank you, bobby knight. and others. we had incredible, incredible support. so many different people i knew i was going to win indiana. i think, let's say ted cruz, it would not be here right now. they give up -- always give up. i think we can win. we are going after california, we are going after the state of washington, we are going after places that no other republican goes after. we have a hit of a tighter half. if we do not win them it is over. whereas the democrats can lose numerous states and they can win so we have a tighter path but i am not your typical person. when we come out we have 31,000 people. they hardly showed that because that was the day the kid was jumping on the police car breaking the hell out of it. they probably did not arrest him. who is tougher at the border, between that and the border patrol but sheriff joe totally endorsed me. no one tougher than sheriff joe. they had a couple of people protesting, they put those people in jail so fast everyone else scattered. i said that is the way it has to be done. that is the way it has to be done. we need strengthen our country and i see it but the thugs last night in san jose and then the democratic mayor gets up and i guess she said i think it was donald trump. when we have a protester inside which is not very often i say a very gentle. please do not heard him. take care from and he wants to shout. if he punches you in the face smile is -- as your nose is pouring blood out of it. a very nice. we had a case where we had an african american guy who was a fan of mine, great fan, great guy. i want to find out what is going on with him. look at my african american over here, look at him. are you the greatest? you know what i am talking about ? ok. we have an african american guy at one of the rallies and he is sitting there behaving and we had protesters inside the arena. they were dressed in a ku klux klan outfit and they are running around dressed as the klan and the places boeing. this african-american gets up and he slugs these guys. by that time their hat was off because it got ripped off because they were running up the stairs but this guy, a great guy, i think he was a military guy for a long time. he slugged this guy wearing the ku klux klan outfit. by the time he got up to the top you could not see it was a cook -- ku klux klan outfit, when the african-american cold cocked this guy, it was like this great guy, we have tremendous african-american support. the reason is i will bring jobs back to our country. we will bring jobs back but when these sleazy people, these dishonest people who never showed the crowd, when they showed that event, it made it look like the white guy was on my side. the african-american guy said, i had enough and no one is going to run through an arena like that and they reversed it and it is a disgrace, ok? me tell you well we are on the subject we're going to bring jobs back to this country. we need our jobs. we're going to make it very expensive for companies to fire everyone and leave. your area has lost one in three manufacturing jobs over a fairly short time. that is a lot of manufacturing jobs. your crime rate is way the hell up. when i go to connecticut, landslide. maryland, landslide. rhode island, landslide. delaware, landslide. the week before that we had new york, super landslide. they know me in new york. we have three people running. i got 62%. i won so much that people could not believe it. way above projections, i knew i was going to win. even for you, with the people who know me do best, they give me a tremendous vote of confidence, and we won it. then you have these guys, donald trump is not at 50%. i have 12 people running against me in some of these states, right? ever notice that? here is a guy, mr. trump will not run. this is the finest field of talent ever assembled in the history of the republican party. that was before i ran. i listen to krauthammer say this is the finest group of talent ever assembled in the history of the republican party. i looked at my wife and said, maybe i should not run. except krauthammer does not know what he's talking about. he is overpaid. he was the big one for the war. go into the war. go into iraq. fight like hell. lose thousands of lives. it's been $2 trillion. you know what we got? nothing. you know what we did? we gave iraq to iran. and i have been against it. with that being said, we are going to build our military so powerful, so strong, nobody is going to mess with us. our military is to pleaded. -- depleted. did you see those things on fox and cnn where they had a sort of documentary on what is going on with our flyers, right? we have these great airmen. what is going on with our equipment? our f-16s, f-18s, they have the fighters, but they don't have parts, so they go into a plane graveyard where they dump the old planes and they are stealing parts for our fighter jets. and they are stealing parts from museums, they are going in and taking parts because they want to be able to continue to fly. this is the united states. can you imagine them doing that? and then they spoke to these young pilots, these great guys, and said, well, what do you think? they are leaving. as soon as their term is up, they are leaving. they remember how great it was 15 years ago when they started. this is the united states, folks, and we are never going to be doing that kind of thing again if i am president, i tell you right now. i tell you right now. so we have a lot of things to do and we are going to do things the right way. which is responsible for its caption content and accuracy. visit ncicap.org]

we are going to do things the right way. hillary clinton is not a talented person. she is not a natural. she was not meant for this job. she is greedy. she is greedy as hell but, she does not have the talent for the job. she is not a natural for the job, and she is just not a natural talent. honestly, folks, look, beyond me, if you choose a hillary clinton, this country is going to die. it is going to die. she is not respected by other countries. as an example, when i said japan, look, we may have to which is responsible for its caption content and accuracy. visit ncicap.org] which is

say sorry, folks, you take care of yourself. leave the room, double up the sanctions. they would have called him within 24 hours. and by the way, the biggest loser in that deal aside from us is israel. israel is beside themselves over that deal. that deal is a disaster for israel and the middle east, because you will have countries now start to arm up and arm up big. it is a disaster. this is the president we have. i believe that hillary clinton is going to be worse than obama, ok? i believe she has less talent than obama. she has less natural ability than obama. and i'm not saying that --, because he doesn't. he has an agenda, folks. nobody could be so stupid and make deals like this guy is making. remember this. remember this. obama has been talking lately, talking about donald trump, and normally i would not want to attack the president. i would not want to say bad. i would rather not. he started speaking. now he has been very quiet lately, very quiet. you know what? he started speaking. once the attacks, we are allowed. he will go out and campaign for hillary. hillary hates obama, you know that? she has hated him for years. obama called bill clinton a racist. bill clinton hates obama. he hates obama. hates him. the biggest surprise to me is that he made the speech at the convention for him. honestly, because he hates obama. hillary clinton can't stand obama, but now hillary will do anything he says. you know why? she does not want to go to jail. you notice? all of a sudden they were going to disassociate themselves with the president. all of a sudden anything he wants, she will do, because it seems -- let's take the word "seems" out. they are protecting her from going to jail. and she does not want to anger the president by saying, i disagree with you on this trade, so she agrees with just about every single thing that he wants to do. yes, sir. no, sir. i think she should start calling him sir, ok? and that is what is happening, folks. we are going to have a whole different thing. remember this about obama. i always thought one thing, i never thought he'd be a good president. i thought he was going to bring the country together. i thought he was going to be a good cheerleader. he has been a disaster cheerleader. no, no, i know what she said. it's, you know, hey, a lot of people say that, by the way, but i thought it would bring the country together. she can't bring the country together. it's not there. he's divided the country. wealthy, eight less than wealthy, white, black, he has been the great divider. he has been a terrible president. hillary clinton will be worse, believe me. she will be worse. she is going to be worse. she has a chance of being far worse. look at the libya deal. look at it. you know it's among the finest oils in the world, right? it is one of the fine oils in the world. you know what? isis has it. i met with the fiancee of the ambassador who was killed. yesterday, she is supporting trump, a very nice woman, and she tells me stories about hillary that are unbelievable, unbelievable, horrible stories about hillary. i said, are you sure that you are supporting me? i thought she would be on the democrat side. she said, i am supporting you, but she told me stories about hillary that are horrible, horrible. she said the ambassador was like a great guy. what they went through was supposed to be beyond comprehension, including the other three young people. and remember the ads, the phony ads with hillary, who do you want answering your phone at 3:00 in the morning. she was sleeping. she was sleeping. she was sound asleep, or who knows, but she did not answer the phone. i say she was sleeping. i say she was sleeping, because she has no energy. i say she was sleeping, all right? you know, i say was a terrible thing. and benghazi has never really been picked up like it should be picked up because the president never picked it up. it is an honor you are here in this kind of heat. i know a number of you went down. i love you all. you're going to be so happy and so proud. you have to go out on june 7. you have got to go out. you have got to vote. because we are sending a mandate. we already won, and we are now ahead by millions and millions above the people that came in second. i won't even tell you who it is. we are ahead by millions. the bigger mandate we have, the stronger the movement will be. and most important, get everyone of your friends, and in november, you have to vote. i will be back. i will be back. in november, in november, you have to go and vote. let me just tell you, we are going to start winning again. we are going to win with our military. and we are going to knock the hell out of isis. and it's going to go a lot faster and a lot easier than people understand. we are going to knock the hell out of them. we are going to have strong borders. we will have the wall. we will be proud of our country again. we are going to repeal obama care. 60%, think of it, in texas, 60% blue cross blue shield. 60. it's going to be worse for other sections. and don't let them take that november 1 announcement and make it december, because that alone will destroy their chances of winning the presidency. remember, don't let that happen, because they're trying to do it. they want to have a later announcement date. so we are going to start winning with so many different elements of life and our country. we will save our second amendment. hillary clinton wants to abolish it. she wants to abolish our second amendment. we are going to save our second amendment. we are going to win. we are going to win at every single level. i joke, i joke, and i have fun, but it is not a joke when we are going to win, win, win. we are going to win so much, three or four friends, great friends in the audience, and i say they're going to come see me at the white house, mr. president, sir, we are winning too much. the people of california don't want to win so damn much, mr. president. please stop this winning. we are not used to it as a country. we are used to losing all the time. we can handle it. i'm going to say, i'm sorry. we are going to win, win, win. we are going to win with trade. we are going to win with military. we are going to win by getting rid of obamacare and replacing it. we are going to win at the border. we are going to get the wall. we are going to let people come into the country, and they're going to come legally. we are going to win so much and we are going to make america great again. i think they want to help everybody else. they want to help everybody but our country. we are going to have a policy of america first, make america great again. we will do it. get out on the seventh and vote, and boy, you better vote in november. thank you very much. thank you. thank you. thank you, everybody. thank you. we love you. thank you. caption content and accuracy. visit ncicap.org]mr. trump: and they're going to vote for trump and we're going to have a big victory. we're going to have a big victory. so when i started, i came down, beautiful building, trump tower. go check it out sometime. gotta buy time magazine first, then check out trump tower. then log on and come on to @realdonaldtrump. between twitter and facebook and instagram, i have like 11 or 12 million followers, sort of like owning the new york times without the losses. can you believe that? it's incredible. it's incredible. i just -- i did something the other day. i did a tweet on something. and i'm watching. i'm home, taking it easy, reading the paper. i did a tweet. and cnn breaks out, we have breaking news! donald trump is just -- some little thing about somebody not doing a good job someplace, right? donald trump has just announced that jeb bush is low energy. paris, where you have a number of places, and they put these thugs in there with guns, the toughest gun laws in the world, they say, is france and paris. the toughest in the world. you can't have a gun, unless you're a bad guy, you have a gun. you walk around with a gun, right? but if you're a law-abiding person, you're not allowed to have a gun. so in paris, these thugs, these dirty rotten, very stupid demented people, walk in. and they say, get over. boom! get over. boom! not one gun in the room, except for the bad guys. they kill 130, with more to come because you have some really badly wounded people in the hospitals, many of whom won't make it. you have 130 people, a hospital load of horrible, horrible injuries. for what? i guarantee you, if that guy right there had a gun on his ankle and if that guy right there had a gun on his waist, and this one over here, the tall one with the glasses, or even the short one, or the woman -- she looks tougher than all of them -- bullets going in both directions, it wouldn't be that way. same thing in california. with these two horrible people, right? these two horrible people that knew everybody in the room. they were sort of friends, i guess. but they knew everybody in the room. and if you had a gun on the other side, it would have been a fight, and you wouldn't have the kind of carnage and horror show that you had. we have to protect our second amendment. remember that. and with me, it's going to be protected. a gun-free zone. we had the five military killed, not so long ago. on a military base, signs all over the place, this is a gun-free zone. one of the five was one of the all-time great soldiers, has every record, was a great marksman. not allowed to have a gun. he can't have a gun. so they have gun-free zones. the guy sees this is a gun-free zone. walks in. kills these five people. if they have guns, believe me, it wasn't turn out that way. they were standing there, nothing they could have done. he walks in, fully loaded. they had their guns, 200 yards away. locked up. first thing i do, one of the first things -- there's so many things to do, but we get rid of those gun-free zones, especially on military basis. it's ridiculous. it's ridiculous. country can do. it's common sense. it's smart. we have to be so vigilant. we have to watch. we have to see what's happening. and when i brought up a certain subject about radical islamic terrorism, a couple of weeks ago, i was met with unbelievable -- similar to when i talked about illegal immigration. and by the way, when cnn came out with their poll two weeks ago, i lead with isis. i lead with everything. i lead with immigration. i lead with isis. i lead with terrorism. and i don't mean by a little. i'm over 50% with most of them. i lead with the economy. that we sort of expect, because i will be the greatest jobs president that god ever created. that i can tell you. the greatest. i'll be the best! when i brought up -- when i brought up radical islamic terrorism, words the president of the united states refuses to say -- now, if you don't say the problem, and if you don't know what the problem is, you're never gonna solve the problem. you're never gonna solve it. there's nothing wrong with him saying "we have a problem." i mean, the world trade center got knocked down. people are being killed all over the place. by the way, when i left today, cologne, germany, people have been beat to hell. women have been raped. what's going on in germany is unbelievable. and we have to be smart. we can't take these people from the line that we have no idea who they are -- confidence in me, with china, with all these places. and don't worry about it. we'll take great care of that whole situation. we'll get along great with them. it will be fine. we're going to do great. but we're going to strengthen up our borders. we're going to get along with mexico. they're going to respect us more. they don't like us now. they take advantage. they don't even like us. ford is building a plant there. nabisco, closing their factory in chicago, moving it to mexico. that doesn't help us, folks. i went to the greatest schools. i went to the wharton school of finance, an ivy league college. but it does nothing for us. we're going to have respect. we are going to be respected by other countries now. we're not respected. it's funny. we're like the big, fat bully that gets his ass kicked all the time. nobody -- nobody respects it. that's what we are. we don't win anymore. and what i said before is this. we are gonna win so much that you people are going to get so tired of it. you're going to beg me, please, please, no more victories, mr. trump. gonna have failures! we're gonna win all the time! and we are going to make america great again! i love you! thank you! get out and vote!while accepting his endorsement. earlier this week, donald trump spoke about his campaign and the issues he's focused on at regent university of virginia. the event was part of a forum that included other candidates. this is 45 minutes. ladies and gentlemen, please welcome mr. dollinger trump. -- mr. donald j. dtrump. we had a very exciting evening last night. you know the work caucus, it's a little complicated. you don't know how it's going to work out. they say it's hard to poll. but we really one day last night. we ended up getting 46% of the vote. during the day, i saw all these people, they are all saying donald, we love you donald. will you don't know what's going to happen. and service we turned on the tv, it was obvious from the beginning. we had an extraordinary night. one of the things that made me so happy is, as you saw, we totally won with evangelicals. we were big league with evangelicals. it was such a good thing. we worked very hard. i am presbyterian, protestant. i was going to talk to pat, to is a great gentlemen. i have watched him over the years. the job he has done is incredible. i have to tell you, it's an honor to be with pat. i look forward to having him really. he will probably be grilling me. -- having him grill me. last time i was with him was about 4 years ago, getting an award. that the boone pickens or four entrepreneurship. -- the boon pickens award for entrepreneurship. the reason we are doing well in the polls, leading by a lot with almost everybody is that i talk about what we have to do for our country. our country is in deep trouble. we owe 19 join dollars. most people don't even know what $1 trillion is. how many hundreds of millions is in one trillion. such a number. 10 years ago you never even heard the word trillion. but we have $19 trillion, a bad budget was passed about four weeks ago that will at least $2 trillion to it. we will be of essentially $1 trillion. at a certain point -- we will be up at essentially $21 trillion. you need someone that knows what they are doing. when it comes to business, i know what i'm doing. it has been amazing for me. my two sons our backstage. maybe i'm allowed to bring them up, because i'm very proud of them. maybe i will bring them on. television. say ehllo don.... text mr. trump: thank you. so a lot of times people asked me to speak about success, friends of mine. they won't even make the payments and we give it to charity. so often i will say, the really successful people are those not without the great wealth, but with great families. great kids and wife and husband. those of the people that are the happiest. i don't know if v i'm v speaking v against v myself v here. v the v fact v is, v the v most v successful v people v in v the v world, v idea v with v them v rid of common core, basically education to washington, which is a disaster. we are going to get rid of obamacare. it turned out to be a total disaster. never had a part-time job in her life. simply companies -- suddenly coming to bring them-- into an unfair thing. so many plans, whether it is the health care savings. we have to get rid of the lines between the states. all of these politicians that i'm running against are taking care of by the insurance companies. they are taken care of by the oil and gas companies. i'm the only one that is not. i am self funding.i don't know if that is smart or not so smart. doctor came up to me and said, why don't we? once i found out what he was talking about, i knew exactly why. the pharmaceutical industry takes care of all the senators and congressmen, they have a strong lobby. we could save $300 billion. and we don't even do it. if i'm there, they will be safe, donald, you can do it. just me, they can't do it because they been given millions of dollars. i guess it's called legal corruption. you don't know how corrupted is. whether it's the timber industry, anything. i will do the right thing. i'm grateful to the timber industry, too. bigger than that is military. i mean for years we have seen the military -- they order a plane that they don't want or missile they don't want because the company making a missile has more political influence. they are ordering too much equipment or the wrong equipment. those days are over. we are going to make our military figure, better, and stronger than ever before. the cheapest thing we can do, and nobody is going to mess with us. i don't want to use it. i didn't wanted go into iraq. that was one of the worst decisions ever made. we lost $2 trillion. thousands of lives. we have loaded warriors -- wounded warriors all of the place. iran is now taking over iraq. when you think of how iran is doing lately, we give them $150 billion and get nothing for it. we should've gotten a business backlog before we started negotiating. you say listen, your not negotiating until we get our prisoners back. they will say no, and then you leave the room. they never, they just stood there. kerry, the worst negotiator i've ever seen.he never left the room . you just say, we need our business back. this was four years ago, they started the longest negotiation of ever seen. we have to have her business back. the portions, pat can tell you, the persians are great negotiators. it's tough. you don't want our prisoners, your people don't even know they are there, we need them. and will make a better deal because it's easier. they will say no, and we will leave the room. we'll say bye bye and double of the sanctions. within 24 hours they will call and say you get your prisoners back. you go in for seconds. you say, listen -- my father was a good negoatiator. he thought i was too tough. he used to use the expression, he'd say son, take the lumps out. if i didn't have my father i would have said this "we're not giving you the $150 billion." they would be angry, you probably never bring it back. "we're not giving it to you." i learned so much my father. so i take the lumps out. listen, we have a problem. i say, did our prisoners land yet? yes, they just landed on american soil. no iw i saw fellas, we have a big problem. we have a country not doing well. we owe $19 trillion, essentially we are bust. we have no money. we just had a budget approved for $21 trillion. we have no money. fellas, we can give you the $150,000 -- $130 million. they will think i'm crazy . one day. i'm dying to give it to you, but we can't, we don't have any money. that's better than say "we're not giving it to you." accept this way they recover faster. i do the first one -- i know the second ones works. no way i would have given them $150 million, in a million year s. and the money is gone. 2 days before the might left -- before the money left. who reads "the art of the deal?" i always say the bible is much better, no contest. no t even close. do we agree? but "the art of the deal" has been a great book. obviously kerry did not read "the art of the deal." probably did not read the bible either. they rough them up at least mentally. they were devastated. they humiliated our country, humiliated the 10 people. 1 womena nd 9 and 9 men. that is what we are dealing with. not going to happen anymore, folks. we're going to be the smart country instead of the dummies everybody laughs at. we are people that don't know what they are doing. we get bowe bergdahl, a traitor, they get five traders that the coveted for 9 years. those killers are back on the battlefield. but these are the ones they wanted, these 5. so we knew he was a traitor before we made the deal because we had a general in kernel interviewed everyone who worked with in the military. six people died looking for him. 5 definitely, probably 6. they went out looking for him, trying to get him back. he left. athat's the way we negotiate. they get bowe bergdahl, they get 5 great killers. for them, the people that they want. not going to happen anymore. until the stories and i meet with -- i tell these stories and i meet with crowds. far bigger than bernie. bernie looks like he's over. looks like hillary will be protected from the e-mail scandal by the democrats. can you believe it? still be people for doing much less than she did are in present. -- are in prison. and are devastated. think of it. for doing less than she did. and she looks like she's just going, boy did you ever see somebody so nice to the president? oh, the president is wonderful, she says. he wants to do this -- you know why she's doing that? boy oh boy, she's become like a marshmallow. everything he does, a with wonderful, what the president wants to do. man, her life cannot be so easy. but what she has done is so wrong and so unfair. it looks like she will be the nominee. it will be something that will be discussed, i promised you. it will be discussed often often often. country. one of the most amazing people in the whole country is our great friend, pat. would you come out here pat? mr. trump: good morning to be here. no, we had a great evening. do? mr. trump: we expect to cancel many of the executive orders of the past. obama has not been able to run things the way you're supposed to run them. you are supposed to get the congressman in the senators in. they made deals during reagan, and they like each other. i have been involved in politics for a long time, all my life. i've gotten done tremendous zoning changes. i have done politics over the world. we have a lot of jobs going all the world. but i've never seen division like you have now. used to go to a restaurant in washington, you see republican having dinner with a democrat and they are best friends. you don't see that anymore. there is hatred. the country is so divided, whether it's african-american, white, congressman, democrat, republican -- i mean, it's like we have a whole divided country.i've never seen anything like it . i used to be part of it, democrats and republicans having dinner together with their families. it was a nice thing.... text sure. mr. trump: there would be combat the next day, but they would get along. so today we have a president that can't get anything done. he signs executive orders. one one of the first ones i would knock out is his executive order on the second amendment, where he is chipping away at it. that's so important. the other one is the one on the border, basically he wants people to pour into the country unchecked. the courts have been following that one. amazingly we have a couple of good decisions so far. it's still out there. the legal fees, i would knock it out very fast. i know you believe in this, we have to have strong borders. you saw the pope came out against me. he was very nice. the next day he issued a statement.... text mr. trump: pretty big. he was told, oh you have this man named trump that wants to build a wall. of course you have to build it. drugs are coming across the border, we don't even have a country. you don't have a border, you don't have a country. he was a little bit strong/ it's interesting because it was the day before the election. i said to myself, oh no. my people came to myself and said, mr. trump, the pope just made a statement about you. i said, good or bad? good or bad? they said, not good. i said oh, this is a disaster. and he talked about the border. he did mention the wall. but i have seen the vatican. the wall goes up to the ceiling, right? i think he took a little heat. he was actually very nice the next day. nobody explained to him about the crime or drugs pouring in and the economy. you don't want to hear it the day before the election that the pope says something unkind about you.... text mr. trump: i think i could add to it a lot, because we needed jobs back in the country.our country has been stripped . i like china, it's wonderful. i'm not angry at china, i'm angry at her representative doing such bad deals. not just obama, this is just now. obama has been horrible and others have been also. mother said with china. -- i'm not upset with china. i have one of the biggest bankers as a tenant in manhattan. i sell millions of condominiums to the chinese. i can be angry. i have great relations with mexico. put in all cases, both count ries, every country is killing us. we have political hacks that are negotiating trade deals that know nothing about it. they have the smartest, servicepeople that they pick up when they are practically three years old. the goal is pyramid chain. out people cannot deal with it. we have the greatest business people in the world and we do not use them. many business people endorse me, the great ones. we are going to use our greatest business people to negotiate trade deals. we have horrible deals with japan.... text mr. trump: we have the highest taxes in the world in the united states. think of it, debits is like this and yet we have high taxes. on coming taxes -- i'm cutting taxes substantially. we are going to bring jobs back. china is one of the great currency manipulators in history, ever. there is nobody ever like them. japan is really good, but china is even better. they have done a number on us with manipulation. in fact, our dollar goes up, and everybody says, isn't that wonderful? but we can't sell a tractor. it's a bad situation going on. they have no fear of us, no respect for us anymore. in the self signed it -- in the south china sea, bigger building is massive military complex. they are not supposed to be doing it. but they don't respect our president. he gives them state dinners when they come over. we have a lot of power over china, we just don't know. they are taking so much money out of our country. it's the greatest robbery in the history of the world. we have rebuilt china. they've taken so much money out of us. we have to stop it. we have to use our power, and we have to use it because of trade. we can get them to do things like the north-south korea problem. that is part of the world that you look at. you know they don't exist without china. they are just toying with us, they have total control. the other one that does is iran. when we meet our deal a month ago, why did not we insist they take care of this? instead of going over with planes and dropping bombs. i have buildings in south korea. they make a fortune. by television set, tremendous amounts of -- i buy television sets, limits amounts of things. we don't make thinose things anymore. we aren't supposed to be talking about these brands, it shows as we aren't as young as we are supposed to be. way. 28,000 soldiers. we get paid peanuts. they make a lot of money. they have to take care of us. we are not in the position to be the policeman of the world. we have to take care of us. there are a lot of things we can do.... text weapon. mr. trump: i would start with china. china has absolute power. the stuff comes through china. i would have done iran. but they are a hostile nation, i don't think you can get anywhere with them. they bought 118 airbus lines. the money goes to europe. they bought a lot of things in italy, all over europe. they bought missiles. which i do not know they had the right to buy. they bought missiles from russia. they gave us nothing. we gave them $150 billion. they spent a lot of it. nothing goes to the u.s. i would have been very strong in the negotiation. i would now be very strong with china. again, we have a lot of power over china. china takes out so much money. i said before, $500 billion trade deficit with china. you can't do that. how long are you going to have a country when you do that? i hate to tell you, you need somebody like me. they talk about free trade. eye and a free trade -- i am a free trader. like kerry, they are going to make air-conditioners, sold them for nothing. they are going to lose 1400 jobs. we employed mexican people, which is fine. they make air-conditioners and sold them. here's the story. this is the only thing you can do to stop it. every time you put an air-conditioner into this country, you have a 35% tax. they are not going to move. you have to be smart. if everybody moves, we won't have everybody left. you can have thousands of factories that close in our countries. pat talked about corporate inversion. they are moving companies, not only because taxes are too high, but out of the u.s., like pfizer. they are a great company. they are moving to get money. there is $2.5 trillion outside of the u.s. and yet the democrats and republicans agreed to bring it usin. if you are obama, within 10 minutes you can make a deal. this is the case where everybody agrees.... text he done it? mr. trump: i could not tell you the story. probably much more. series were democrats and republicans are in total agreement. they disagree on all these other things. here's something they all agreed on. we want the money back in our country, what no to agree on? it should be 10 minutes to solve that problem. they agree here, agree here. no deal. they have agreed now for 3 years. that his leadership. if i was president, i would get them on the office and says, fellas -- folks, because we have a lot of women, and that is good, -- folks, we have to make this deal. i would have it on and a half hour. unique leadership. -- you need leadership. you can be playing golf on a boeing 747. he talks about the carbon footprint and then gets in a 747 to play golf. he comes back a long time later. it was not like you came back the next day. he played a lot of golf. you have to get people into an office and make deal.... text would you use? mr. trump: we have george a -- we have george a ---- we have judge alito, who is terrific. we have judge thomas, who is a great guy. we have some who do not work out as well. if you look at justice roberts, he could have killed obamacare twice. whatever he does, he was appointed by bush. senator cruz is the one that most wanted him. he wrote editorials, saying that you have to have roberts. justice roberts was a terrible justice. he improved obamacare when everybody was against it. he had a second time at it, and he passed it then too. some of the other judges on the conservative side. rumors are that someone not even speak to him. what he did was terrible. he was a bush appointee. the one that pushed him harder than anybody was senator cruz. senator cruz gave us obamacare in a sense. wrote papers on why he should be the one chosen signed by ted cruz. no matter what he does, he's been a disaster because obamacare is killing everybody. it's killing everybody.... text pick? mr. trump: pro-life. i've always said that justice thomas doesn't get enough credit.... text mr. trump: he is. he's a wonderful man. he's a wonderful guy. beautiful. mr. trump: yes. very simple answer, yes. east. you look at, you know, what's happened with israel. they were so against this horrible iran deal. they were so against it. and i'll tell you what, obama was the worst thing that's ever happened to israel. you can look at it that he's not a good president and he's not doing a good job. you look at netanyahu and you look at what he's gone through. you could just see the level of exasperation on that man's face. the most basic things -- they weren't winning anything. why did we make a deal like this with these people? and they look at us with no respect. i don't get it. i don't get it. there's a lot of theories. i don't get it. this will be studied and studied for a long time. this will lead to nuclear proliferation, 100%. all the money that we gave and even the keeping of the hostages and they released the hostages for $150 billion so it looks like ran some. the other way it wouldn't be ran some. no, i'm with israel, 100%?... text mr. trump: i'm a very strong constitutionalist. i feel very strong about it. frankly, you could say it, not giving it a lot of thought but all of these executive orders, that's not a constitutional thing. nobody ever -- goes and signs an executive order and says five years later the courts will decide. the good thing about the executive order is the new president can immediately void them. that's the one good thing. who goes too far. you've been hearing what i said over the last few weeks. things were said that were lies. i won't mention it because i can't mention -- i've got to be a good person today. at least for the next hour, i'm sorry. but there have been many untruths told. you know -- knowing, knowing. i think what happened to ben carson was terrible when they said he left the race. here come on over, vote for me. i think i would have won iowa. that affected me. we've got a second and three firsts. so i'm not complaining. there have been bad things happening out there. real estate is tough. these politicians are not such good people.... text ideas and values? mr. trump: well, you know, it's interesting, one magazine said donald trump is a world class businessman. i'm all over the world. and i deal with all politicians. honestly, i never thought i would have done this. i was exasperated. i had a lot of jobs going. my children are younger and they can do great jobs. excellent executives. this is not something i was going to do or really wanted to do. i loved what i was doing. the fact is that as a businessman you get along with all politicians or you have a problem. so i get along with democrats. i get along with liberals and conservatives. i get along with everybody because that was my thing. i get along with bob -- where's bob in the audience? where is he? i get along with everybody. and that was important. and i tell people and people would forgive for that. you want to get along with democrats, republicans. for the most part that's been used on me. once i explain it, most people understand.... text mr. trump: actually there are some names that i've gotten to respect. we started with 17. we're now down to five. some of the people that i've dealt with, i have a lot of respect for. the main quality is somebody that can be a great president if something happens to you. don't you think that's got to be number one? and then i want somebody that could help me with government. so most likely that would be a political person because you know, i'm business and i'm very good at what i do and all of that. and i'm also very, very political. you've seen me -- when you can get zoning on the west side of manhattan to build almost 6,000 units of housing and you have to go through new york city politics, believe me, that's as tough. i don't see israel-palestine but it's about as tough a deal -- i view that as the single toughest deal. anybody can make a deal and we're going to give it a shot. but a lot of good people have gone down trying to give that a shot. the most important thing is you have to have somebody that can be a great president. but after that, you want somebody that can help you with legislation getting it through, etc., etc. i would say -- and it's too early. i'm not thinking about it a lot. i'm thinking about getting the ball over the line and get this thing done. and it's a very interesting thing because some people know how to do that, some people don't. i do want somebody that's political because i want to get lots of great legislation that we all want --... text mr. trump: well, it's an amazing question because you know there's a six-year statute of limitations, might be five, but i think it's six. the answer is i would instruct them to take a look at it because it's not really our call to say indict.... text mr. trump: but certainly you would have to take a look at it because you look at general petraeus. they gave him two years suspended. they wanted to take his rank away from him. i fought this very hard. i said why don't you focus on beating isis and leave general petraeus alone? leave him alone. he suffered greatly over this. and what he did is nothing compared to what she did. so i would instruct my attorney general please look at it. and if there's something there -- there seems be a lot there because we read about people that are experts in the field. how often did you hear somebody say she did nothing wrong? but they're protecting her because she's the number one runner. she's saying how wonderful obama is. did you see anything like it? every single thing he wants to d she's saying great. she's doing it for that reason. believe me folks. well, donald, i want to thank you. i think the audience appreciates you and loves you. national captioning institute]we take you live to a campaign resid -- with donald trump. mr. trump: what a day. i just got back from church per at i learned something. we talked about humility in church today. i don't know if that was aimed at me. perhaps. it may have been by luck. this is crunch time. we are just about a week, a little bit more. i just hope you get out there and do your thing. if we do it, we will have an unbelievable victory. look at all of these beautiful hats. we will make america great again. look at that. we are going to do a great job. when i went on to this journey, june 16, down the escalator. i will tell you that takes guts. it took guts and certain courage. it is not something i have ever done. politicians run for office, they win and lose, they win and lose. they don't care. they are all talk, no action. i have never done it before. the reception has an incredible. the polls have an amazing. just like this room and every room is packed no matter where we go. much bigger than bernie sanders. we are second. we have the biggest crowd. 12,000 people. bernie sanders had 3000. that is good. and he is second, way down the loan but sec -- down the line, but second. 20,000 people and bernie sanders has 3000 and we have 12,000. they said bernie sanders had 3000 people. it was great. then they talk about trump, i had 12000 and we had to send 5000 home because we did not get them in. face. they never want to show the crowd. the people get it. the people are really smart. someone asks me what you most learned. i learned a lot. hello, darling. look. i love these people. we have the most loyal people. we have the most loyal. that is the other thing i learned, the loyalty. they do polls on the debate, we when all of the polls on the debate. another debate coming up on thursday and i think that will be fine. i do not know if it will be fair, but we will handle it one way or the other. it is what we have got to do. i learned the level of loyalty to our movement, it is really beyond me. this is a movement. it is not like a normal situation. the cover of time magazine this week, a really fair story, a professional, beautiful story about the fact that there has never been anything like this. there has never been. it has been an incredible journey. they will study it. i get calls all the time by reporters. how does it feel to do what you have done? i did not do anything. on february 1, we have got to go out and you have got to do it. no matter how you feel, if you are feeling sick, having fights with your wife or your husband, no matter what is going on, if you lost your job 15 minutes before, if they said you are fired because the economy states, no matter what happens, you have got to get out because we are going to change things. we are going to change it. has been doing this for a long time. whether it is republican, democrat, liberal, conservative, they are sick and tired of seeing our country ripped off by every single nation in the world. during the last week, we had a wonderful woman who the -- the press does not treat fairly. sarah palin came out and endorsed us. if you knew her personally, you would understand even more. everybody likes sarah. she is an amazing woman. her husband is fantastic. we got a call, we would like to work with you and endorse you. how nice is that. he was at 2%. a canadian citizen. i don't know. it was sort of interesting. she was amazing. her level of success with endorsements is tremendous. the press does not give her her just do. she is a wonderful woman who loves this country. i was happy to have her endorsement. i want to thank you, sarah, who is probably watching. you have all those cameras on right now. we have a lot of cameras. whole thing. should i go through a couple of polls? yes? fox just came out, 12 or 14 points, trump is up, you heard about that, right? trump is up. through the roof. a poll yesterday, 48%. another 1, 40 2%. 36 and 38%. we are doing great. we are doing unbelievably. numbers came up from fox and cbs this morning for new hampshire where we are through the roof. in south carolina, all of them, nevada, all of them. i am happy because i spent a lot of time and i love the people of iowa. i think we will win iowa. even my people, they say please do not say you will win because it you come in second -- i say that is ok, i'm going to win. we have not had a winner in 16 years here and it is time. it is time. make america great again. you better believe it. thank you. if you choose me, we will finally have a winner. they want to move you to the back of the pack. you want -- you know that? a big push that i will will not be where you are now. they want to move you and i give you this pledge. if i win, they are never moving you. you are staying there. you are staying there, 100%. you are staying where you are. honestly, regardless, a great tradition here. it is an amazing thing. an amazing place, a great lace. i think we are going to win. i am not going to say i will be thrilled when i come in second. i don't think we will. im looking at what is happening. there is a theory, that i will actually do better than all the polls. the polls with trump, they were saying this morning, not even a fan, but he said, trump is going to win the whole thing. trump is going to be the nominee and he will probably do well against hillary because look what he did last week against hillary. i was the best thing that ever happened to bernie sanders. my attack on hillary, she went down and sanders got all the credit for it. today. she said false things about me so i hit her hard. on the fox poll and another poll that came out that i am beating hillary, and i will beat hillary, -- hit him too hard. if i hit him hard, he will go down and then we will fight with hillary. isn't he a wonderful guy? i do not want to hit him too hard. i never thought of it. when i hit hillary last week, and bill, all the sudden they did this and then they start saying bernie sanders is surging, an amazing happened. i'm saying i did that. now maybe -- i could hit him. i have stuff in my mind. i could hit him so hard, he would drop. $100 million. the polls coming out this morning, he went down. he is down at the bottom. it is time to give up. it is time to give up. in life, sometimes you have to admit when you don't have it. he does not have it. he does not have it. he takes vicious advertisements, "he is not a true conservative." what does this guy know about me? he says, "he will not win the race." if he is so good, how come i am beating him? unbelievable. he is at 3m i met 42 -- three and i am at 42. here is a guy who spent almost $100 million. i spent almost nothing. i feel guilty. it is now up to almost 40 million. i had a budget to have spent $40 million. i'm spending my own money and not other people's. i am the only one. you have cruz getting oil money -- he is so against ethanol, you can forget it. all those wonderful farmers that produce what they have to produce, cruz is t5otaotally against -- then he changed. he is not so principled because he changed and then changed again and got a little bit more. what is that against -- about principled? getting killed, and that he changed, he changed twice very and he will change back so fast because who is giving him money? oil people are giving him money. nobody is giving me money. i turned down money. i feel so full itch -- so foolish. my whole life, i take and take. greedy. now i will be greedy for the united states and i will take for the united states. i am going to be so greedy -- where we give them $150 billion, 100 and $50 billion. we should of never given it and we should have had our prisoners back ears ago before the negotiations started. you do not start the negotiation unless they give us act our prisoners. you do not started here you do not even think about it. i tell the story all the time because it is amazing. you go in and they have our prisoners, three and four, and it will set a wave of kidnapping like you have never seen before. people see that deal, and putting the deal together with the other, it will set a wave. you walk in and they will say let's start. we have to have the prisoners back. they will say no. we will say, can i have the prisoners back and they will say no. you walk out. you double up the sanctions. they will call you within 48 hours, there people outside still trying to get -- they will call you at sure as you are standing here, and they will say, you have got your prisoners. now you get your prisoners. you go in and say, there is another item. we cannot give you back $150 billion to what do you mean, what do you mean? they are a good negotiator p or we have guys who are better. we want to get the prisoners back. this is what we should have done. we did not make any deals. say now, $150 billion, we are blessed. we have got $19 trillion in debt. my father used to say, take the lump sum. we have got $150 billion. we do not have the money. we own $19 trillion now with the stupid budget deal. do you believe that deal? we are now at $21 trillion, $21 trillion. trillion. trillion dollars. so we say we cannot do it, we have 19 trillion, and they will be angry, and what you do is leave the room and that is the end of thaty and they call you back. what they made and that deal, 20 four hour inspection, what they did is so incredible. we could have had a great deal. i like the idea of deals. deals are good. one of the problems with ted cruz, everybody hates him. such a nasty guy. think of it. not one united states senator has endorsed him. and the senator was with me and introduced us, what a wonderful guy he is, senator grassley, a great guy. but think of it. there is something wrong when you deal of people on a daily basis and not one person endorses you. there is something missing there, something that. he hit me first during the debate. the matter what i did, i could have done any in, he was backing me up. i said this guy seems like a nice guy, more than anybody else there it carson backed me up nicely and he was a good guy personally. honestly, i like a number of them running. but with cruz, he was so positive. everything was great. i did the muslim, great. somebody has to do it. somebody has to say what is going on. we have radical islamic terror going on all over the world and we have a president who will not say it. he will not even talk about it. so i did that and he was fine with that a lot of people want and now they are. they say trump has a point. i think so, i have a point. when planes fly into the world trade center and the pentagon and wherever the third plane was going -- goodbye. goodbye. and he never will. and he never will but that is ok. we have got to do something because it is not working. i have friends who are muslims and they call me up. not all of them, but some of them. we have to get to the bottom of what is going on. these two young's people -- young people that got married, they got radicalized, and gave them parties, you kill them and then in paris, you lose 100 30 people who do not have guns. we will protect the second amendment if i am president. in the world as a country, you cannot have a gun, and yet the bad guys can always have a gun. you with the white hat. if i pick out you, you right there with a sign, if i pick out you, if i pick out a few people out of the audience, they could pick out almost anybody. if you had a gun in the bullets were firing the other way in paris or california or remember the five military officers that were killed in a gun free zone on a military base, that will end the first day. no more. no more. and they would not have been looking with the guy with the dirty hat. they would not have been looking for him for long. the other thing, the press. they are a dishonest group of people. the guy with a dirty hat, they called him the mastermind. for two days, they are looking for him and calling him the mastermind. he sent people into a couple of places in paris and said shoot everybody that you can. what is going on. they said, " who the hell he is. and i called him the guy with the dirty hat. probably a low iq. he is a freaking morons. . the press is calling him the mastermind and and they are wondering why the youth is the radicalized. they are using the internet better than we use it and our guys invented it. they are hearing, he is a mastermind, he is a mastermind. he is a dirty, rotten more on. and we killed him, fortunately. the cops in france did a great job and the cops in california did an amazing job. our police, i tell you what, the most mistreated people practically in this country. police and veterans. remember that. the shooting going on and all that stuff here it -- stuff. you have that one 100th of 1%, where a horrible thing happens, it that policeman, that can happen, a huge story all over the world. they play it up but they do not talk about all the good things. give them a hand. give them a hand. country. i just respect them a lot. they are afraid every time they talk to somebody. if they are a little rough, they end up losing their pension and a job. it is terrible what is going on with our police. i have had policeman, tough cookies, where they are literally afraid to be a little rough with people who are really bad people. because they are afraid they will end up getting brought before commissions and lose their jobs. we have got to shares -- cherish our police officers. it is very important. very important. story. if we could do what we have done, i spent practically nothing. the biggest expense is my airplane p or i own it. i have to pay myself because i own my airplane. so i have an expense. you find the market value of the plane, the whole thing is ridiculous. but i spent very little money. i am going to for two reasons. number one, i feel guilty. i feel guilty. number two, i do not want to take a chance. i do not want to be a wise guy, because i will win without spending p or i'm going to spend whatever it takes. i do not want to be a wise guy. i have spent less than anybody, just about. and you are by far number one. it is so cool. it is so cool. and i do not really have to spend. a lot of people say why are you doing that, you do -- you don't have to. it is because i get good ratings. it is very simple. face the nation is a very good show, john dickerson. last night, i have got to be straight. do you think if i was wrong on this, you would think i would say it -- headline, trump said -- a release last week, a big show, cbs. they put out a release last week. i did a show a couple of weeks ago from florida, where i am leading to very low numbers. i love florida. we will win -- we will win florida. we will win a lot of states nobody ever thought about winning for. but face the nation put out a release last week that we had their interview with donald trump come a long interview from florida, that it was the highest-rated show they have had in 15 or 16 years since the fall the world trade center. highest related show. it gives you power. that gives you power. you look at the debates. talks at 40 -- 24 million, cnn said it was the largest show they have ever had. they cover wars and days events. the biggest ratings they ever had was the debate. i know they are not watching jeb , a low-energy person. i know they are not watching ted. i don't want to insult the rest of them. i get along with people. i want to be nice. i don't want him to call me and say why did you say that about me. but if you look at four years ago and eight years ago, it used to be like a throw away. they had to do it as part of their licensing. they did not even want to put them on. it is now like they cannot get enough. it is the debate coming up here the big debate, it is crazy. every magazine, they call it the trump debate. it gives us some power because we are the silent majority that is turned into the north the majority. chuck todd is a nice guy. they were down in the toilet with the ratings. then i finally agreed to do a show because he started to treat me with respect. he went through the roof. millions of people watching. they all said, what happened. he will probably go in and get a raise now. and george stephanopoulos, we do his shell and it steps through the roof. cnn, a good guy there. they get good ratings. gives us power. they do not care about the poll numbers. i care more about the poll numbers. when i see those ratings, it makes me feel good because that means people are listening to our point of view. that is what it means. eminent domain. most people do not even know what that is. it is where government takes property for a full payment, they pay you, they do not just take it. they call it a taking but you got paid a fortune. frankly more than you never get because you are dealing with politicians and politicians, as we have learned, they pay too much. if you are building a road, if you are building a highway, because let's say you have a community like this, and look at all the people, and you need roads and highways and schools and hospitals, and you may have somebody who has a little farm in the corner of the far makes it impossible to build, let's say a school or a hospital or let's say you cannot build a highway because the farmer says i do not want to sell under any circumstances here at a highway is coming, but you can't get the land. it is called eminent domain. they will take that sliver and they will pay you a fortune. they say it is fair market value but it is more than that if you are smart. they have this thing about donald trump and eminent domain and that i had something to do with, you know, there is an economic developer and project where i would have loved to use eminent domain. i ultimately did not use it but they said in the ad that i did and that i ripped down this house from an old woman. it never happened. if i did, it would have been thousands of jobs. but it never happened. they have bulldozers ripping down. false stuff. let me tell you about eminent domain p wrote all of these conservative people, the national review is a dying magazine. does anybody here read it? nobody. it is dying. the thing is that as a doornail. it is going to be closed. i bet it is close in a short time. what they did is they have a couple of guys at the lead and they got some publicity and it is probably the best thing that happened to me because my poll numbers went through the roof because nobody respect the people. these are the people that said very strongly that trump will never run. if he does run, it is not going to happen here he don't even talk about it. then they said he will never sign form then they say never put in his financials because maybe he's not as rich as everyone thinks that he doesn't want to hurt his image. turns out i much richer than anyone new. almost 100 pages of financials. they were great. turnberry in scotland weather play the british open. so many different things. it turned out to be great. tremendous cash flow. i wanted people to see it. these guys went down and said this was bad news. and i put them in right didn't as for extensions. they said he will ask for an extension because you're entitled to many extensions. many of the politicians who filed a one or two page report as for extensions. and people couldn't believe it. that's the kind of thinking our country needs to make us great again and strong again and all of these things. i heard this morning a more accurate number. $505 billion. and then obama says our partner china -- i love china. these people come to me and by my apartments. the biggest bank in the world is in china. they are a tenant and when my buildings in manhattan. i own a big building in san francisco along with a group that is a great group. we on the bank of america building in san francisco. i am another one, 1290 avenue of the americas. wins. that's how i got them. iv china. -- i beat china. our country does not win any more. that's the kind of thinking we have. we have people that are real stiffs. we have people that should never be doing what they are doing. i look at the stuff and i see what is happening and i look at ted and i say wait a minute, i put in this report and all these people for the national review said i would not run or file. when i found my financials, it was by grand central terminal in front of the federal elections commission with reporters. what do they get instead? ted cruz with a couple of pages. he forgot to say that goldman sachs gave him money. he forgot to say that citibank gave him money. he is a man of the people. he is robin hood. these this great man of the people even though nobody likes him or no senators endorsed him and he is a nasty guy. he's going to help people. he doesn't want to know you borrowed from goldman sachs. goldman sachs has him. citibank has him. he is going to come out with rulings against goldman sachs and yes a personal agreement, i don't think so. he said he did not know. he's got to banks. --two banks. how do not put that in your personal disclosure form? it is impossible. smart guy. you know you had banks and in the put them. he didn't want the people to know that goldman sachs owes money to him and he's that guarantees with goldman sachs. he's got very low interest rate loans. he's got low interest rate loans. they are like peanuts. when goldman sachs goes to the senator in texas in the case of the people from texas and they say we have to have this that he's going to do it. on that taking anybody's money. great constitutional lawyer from harvard said this is an unsettled matter. this great constitutional lawyer. others have come up and said he can't run for president. maybe he can, maybe he can't. i don't know. he should go to court and seek a declaratory judgment. people voting for ted cruz -- there is a real chance he is not allowed to run for president. he can run for prime minister of canada. does anybody know this? he's a citizen of canada. he is a citizen of canada and somebody found out. reporters ultimately find out anything. much of it is false with this happens to be true. he's a citizen of canada and they sent -- and they said your citizen of canada. they said how could it be your citizen of canada? he said he did not know about it. and there are advantages to being citizens of different places. you understand that. he didn't know he had loans out the goldman sachs and he didn't know -- come on. are we babies? are we going to find a what happens. then he makes a false statement about me that i'm ripping down some woman's house that ultimately so forget about it. i saved a fortune. it was in atlantic city. i left atlantic city eight or nine years ago. it totally collapsed. the smart people give me an a provision. i left. i would have built this tower. the woman did me a big favor by not wanting to sell. i never ripped down her house. she was perfectly fine. they show tracker stripping down her house. -- tractors ripping down her house. do you think he will apologize? he should give me an apology. they show a tractor ripping down something. not her house. but they show this a beautiful -- it could be a john deere but think of the caterpillar. -- i buy millions of dollars of it. millions. ted has a problem. i don't know what the problem is but i can say that the polls that came up this morning there has been tremendous turn. 12 points or 14 points of swing. we are way up and he went way down. ultimately you got to go caucus. if you don't go out, you are not enemies this country great again. if you don't go out and do it that you have these people at national review. it's gotten a lot of publicity. it's a failing magazine. got no influence whatsoever. you have brent bozel. he's up in my office asking for money. something to do with advertising. i want money. i want money. i say what -- who is this guy? so i think about it given him a check for his general contribution. this was a long time ago. i gave him money. then he calls again and wants more money. i said you can be rich, but why do we have to give money to people? i'd rather give to charity. the next and i hear his name i'm writing a piece about donald trump. i guarantee you folks if i gave him more funny, you give it for the rest of your life, but he would've been fine and would not have written the piece. then you have glenn beck. always crying. because fox fired him. now we has a loser going on. in all fairness i don't blame him. he asked for an interview. don't forget until i did this i was sort of not thinking about this. i did not give him an interview only because i was busy. i didn't give him an interview. i probably would've acted the same way. he calls my people and i go to first place. i have been in first place almost as the day i announced. geniuses. " we wouldn't have given him an interview." i should have given them an interview but i didn't do it. i did not give glenn beck an interview. he asked many times. he said his father is in the hospital. he was sick and not well. i don't know how that worked out. i said i will do your show. bottom line is probably called up and we did not do the show. he comes out against me. if i did interviews, he would not have done it. that's the way life is. you don't learn this at the wharton school of finance with us the way life is. i don't blame him. if i call somebody and had a network, the family network -- a failing network especially and they would not do the interview -- and there was no other reason other than i had things to do. if i call somebody and they wouldn't do it, probably i would be swayed to knock the hell out of them. they came up with a stupid cover. they have 22 guys. i could go other examples. some of them are nice people and a lot of them are not even very vicious. but they did this and they try to sell some magazines. they might sell this one. the national review is finished. if the detonating. they came out and they tried to do something that was good. they got some publicity. i think it probably helps me. here is the story. we have a very major election coming up. i think it's kind of in the most important election we've had modern times. our country is going to hell. we have people that are incompetent leading our country. we have people that are frankly -- trump likes to speak. i went to an ivy league college. i went to the wharton school of finance which is the best business school in the world. i'm like a smart person. iowa; -- i always say my uncle, slow horses don't produce fast horses. my uncle was a professor for years. a great engineer. dr. john trump at m.i.t.. the people in this room are smart. my people are the smartest people in my opinion. they get it. these of the smartest people. the most loyal and the smartest. the most loyal in the smartest. plainspoken. is that a positive or not? think of it. when you have a word to describe your leadership in this country, what's a better word than the word "stupid?" there is no better word. i can go through a thesaurus and come up with others, but there is no better word. pride? i used to say incompetent, but stupid is better. when you look at these deals that we make, when you look at what we do with china, with what we do with mexico -- mexico are friends of mine. i employ thousands of people. tens of thousands of hispanics. in nevada i am meeting. -- leading. i said i'm going to win with hispanics and african-americans. i'm getting great american -- numbers of african americans because of going to give jobs to people. what has obama done for african-americans? they are relatively speaking the worst shape they have been in. you look at kids. 58% unemployment. you look at people that are 35-50, and their prime, unemployment is through the roof. obama has done nothing. with him it is all talk. all talk, no action. just a bad guy. i will tell you what. i thought obama would be a great cheerleader at minimum to this country. guess what? he has been a horrible cheerleader for our country. he has been a divider. our country is divided. it's divided very badly. of iowa. a beautiful, wonderful woman says, mr. trump, my friends are concerned if your president would you still speak so tough? i say no, it is different. there's a little truth of that. you want to ease up? i'm running originally against 17 people. four or five are down the tubes and now we have a big group double be down the tubes despite all the money. can you imagine all the money they spent and they are now down the tubes. i said to her -- she said the only thing they have against you is a major rhetoric is tough. happy skies -- half these guys lie. trump, trump, hit trump. want to deal with hillary if i don't -- if she doesn't go to jail are bernie or bloomberg which would be great. i love the competition. i love bloomberg to come in. i'm dealing with all these people. i have to be a little bit tough and quick because i don't have enough time to be so nice. if i'm president, i would have a little bit of time. the demeanor would be a little bit different but don't worry it will be the same attitude. i'll be a little softer. maybe the attitude will be tougher but the words of the softer. i tell people it's easy. i could be so politically correct. i got a palm beach. i own a great place in palm beach. we have the great society people in palm beach that always will be sitting next to them. i sit next the ladies. "donald, it's a beautiful to have you with us." allowed to say that about a woman. i've never had anybody complain. they are very up in the air and very nice people and they raise a lot of money for charity. i'm so politically correct. they say we can't believe the sophisticated donald is. i can do it any different way. our country has the problem. i don't have time to be politically correct. does that make sense? coming down the escalator, it looked like the academy awards. look back there at all these guys. who has that? on a sunday morning. here we are in iowa. look. unbelievable. i will tell you what will happen. this one section for structural reasons they cannot have people up there. watch. every single seat. people are outside standing. for structural reasons it's under repair. they will probably have one wiseguy show that one section. "not that many people turned out." protesters. they have to show up. i tell this story. whether many people there? yeah, it's all live on cnn and all of them. did you watch? she said donald, they never leave your face. they never leave you. it's like a tight shot. they never leave your face. i said i don't like that. we were in lowell, massachusetts in a stadium. oral roberts university. the playset 12,000-13,000 people. we had to send away 5000 or 7000 people. they never once show the stadium. my wife said were there many people? didn't they show it? no. she said i could tell by the sound there had to be a lot because it sounds like a brrr. she said i could tell them are a lot of people but they never showed it. repair and you see these sleaze bags showing it, remember what i said. they are the worst. they are so dishonest. i want to backtrack. i want to say this about conservatives. "donald trump is not a true conservative." best jeb bush. "donald trump is not a true conservative." this guy will get you nothing done. he spent $100 million. here is what happens. one of the things they say is eminent domain. all conservatives want the keystone pipeline. is that right? i want it. here is my deal. obama either approves or he doesn't. hillary says no good. you know why hillary is with obama on some of the things? why? she doesn't want to go to jail. the man in the front row gets it. you have not been at one of my deals, where you? he gets it. he was a number six. she doesn't want to take him on. she is saying things and she will until the end. she is against the keystone pipeline. all the conservatives are for it. here is the difference. i am for it. with the help difference does it make? -- what the hell difference does it make? i love canada. you know who's going to approve that deal fast, ted cruz. he's in canada. benefits canada. it's great. they can be the only guy running for president and then he will run for prime minister of canada. anyway, without eminent domain -- these guys all say "donald trump is against eminent domain." i want to have a highway built. you know what can't be built without eminent domain? the keystone pipeline. no pipeline can be built because it goes thousands of miles from canada down to texas. a goes through farmland and a goes through a person's house. without this -- when you look under the keystone pipeline, they have a whole section dedicated to eminent domain. what it means, how we will use it. now they're saying i'm not a conservative because of eminent domain. but you needed or you want have roads in the country. i say the keystone pipeline cannot be done without eminent domain. probably connected 20 feet. -- probably could not go 20 feet. they take the property. they pay you a fortune. there are people to make a living off of buying imminent domain lands. they are supposed to pay fair market value but you're negotiating with the government so mr. stupid to get more money than it's worth. if you listen to them, they talked about it the other day, " donald trump lesion the taking of property." they forgot to say you get a fortune for it. these are dishonest people. eminent domain, keystone pipeline. here is the difference. the conservatives want an approves. we have the democrats that say no. a lot of the democrats think it should be approved, by the way. but you have a group this is no. we have a group that says yes. here is what i say. yes. but i'm not finished. for the country, i want to take for the united states -- why should we let them build this massive pipeline using eminent domain and go through all these farms and farmland in cities and wherever the help they are going -- hell they are going? i want 25% of the deal for the united states. they will make a fortune. down. i like canada and i want them to be happy. i want the developers the pipeline to give united states a big, big chunk of the profits or even ownership rights. like i do in business. that's what i do. here is what is going to happen tomorrow. it's so simple but you'd never heard of it. now everyone says take the oil. i sent in iraq -- take the oil. now they are all saying it. with the keystone pipeline i want a big piece of the deal. otherwise i'm not going to approve it. they will give us a lot. i don't be too greedy, but if i am, i'm greedy for the country. when they did the keystone pipeline i want it approved. i like a lot of oil flow. right now we are low but a member opec and i never want to be in that position again. doesn't that make sense? you will not hear that from anyone else. they would not know where to begin. carl icahn, many other businessmen want to endorse me. they say he's the one that gets it. we have corporate inversions going on for countries are leaving the united states. they used to leave iowa and go some other place. some went to mexico. new, iowa. -- newton, iowa. they would be these places and go to florida. now they leave new jersey and the good ireland. pfizer is going to rhode island. thousands and thousands of jobs because they can bring their money back into the country and because the taxes are too high. my tax plan is an amazing plan. it's going to make us so dynamic. larry, a great guy, said it's a phenomenal plan. it's going to lower taxes for corporations. lower taxes for business. get rid of a lot of rules and regulations. as farmers, people that have farms are telling me stories that are a disaster. they can't even take care of their farms anymore because of the environmental impact stuff. we will bring it back and we would go back to saturday and do things that are incredible. we are going to do things that are incredible in this country. we are now the highest taxed nation in the world. we will make it so we are one of the lowest. we are going to become a dynamic force again. they cannot get it back in. they spend it here but they can't because it so restrictive. they can't do it bureaucratically. all $2.5 trillion, the government has no idea. just like they have no idea how many illegals are in this country. they have no idea goes on the obamacare website that cost $5 billion. it still doesn't work. all that money does offshore, the democrats and republicans want it. this is been going on for three and half years and they can get together. they have no leader. every democrat once it, ever republican. we want money brought back into the country. the reason they can't get it done is no leadership. it's one thing if they are opposed -- somebody wants obamacare and somebody doesn't. is a logjam. here is something with a want the money to command and they can't -- come in and they can't get it done. there is total gridlock in washington. i doub -- a guy like ted cruz can never get it done. it's never going to happen. you need to me that can we win deal and get things done. -- wheel and deal and get things done. all of obama does now is signed executive orders. he can't get it -- boom. executive order. they will say -- here is an executive order. in five years, don't worry, i'm playing golf. remember ronald reagan and tip o'neill when the country was running good. they got along and you got congress. these doing an executive order on the second amendment. how terrible is that. we can't do that stuff. here is the story. i was talking about trade. i was talking about china, japan , millions of cars pouring in and we get emphatically nothing. i was talking about mexico. they beat us in tree and at the border. drugs are coming across. anchor babies, which i was right about. the fact is somebody has a baby that is in a legal is it me with to take care that baby for the next 90 years. i am right. i was right. some of the greatest lawyers in the world to trump was right. all the things they talk about. then you had harris in los angeles and -- paris and los angeles and other things happen. and then cnn does a poll. it was best of the economy? trump by a factor of many times. in the 60's and 70's. i will be the greatest jobs president god ever created. trump. best of the military. trump. it was the best on isis. trump. by a lot. as in the narrative started changing. i was talking about all the different things. trust me. trade is going to be great. we will bring back jobs. we will make good deals, not bad deals. i will use the greatest business people in the world. i know the good ones, the bad ones, the ones that are overrated. the one you have never heard of that are better than all of them. to them it is sport. they love the country, some of them. some don't care. these are tough people. some will live a country out of the united states if they can save a few dollars. we will have the best negotiators in the world negotiating against japan and mexico and china and vietnam and all of these countries that are absolutely killing us. what china has done to us is perhaps the greatest theft in the history of the world. we have rebuilt china. what they have done to us is taken so much money out of this country and we go them $1.7 trillion. can you believe it? they kill us and we of the money. japan, we go them $1.5 trillion. we will take care of that. we will knock the hell out of them. don't want to use it. some people say trump is very tough and he might be very quick on the trigger. all these weak people want to use our military. i said don't go into iraq in 2003. he will destabilize the middle east. i am the same one in the group. -- sane one in the group. i want to make it bigger and better and stronger and technologically nobody can compete. it has been wonderful. you can read all the time magazine cover stories you want. in my opinion if we don't win, we wasted a lot of time. you have got to go caucus. otherwise we are going to have something that is amazing. here is what we're saying. if trump win iowa, they give you a lot of power, if trump wins iowa he will run the table. go to new hampshire where i have a massively. like a 20 point lead. incredible people in new hampshire. if i don't win, and i think we going to win anyway because answer is strong. south carolina is through the roof. we have a huge lead in nevada. george it is amazing. florida, 40%. -- 48%. if i can win iowa, we will run the table. i want you to do what is right. but i honestly believe it is very important because you have not had a winner in so long. you will have a winner. i give you my word, you are going to have a winner.good morning, everyone. my name is louise burke, publisher, part of simon and shuster, and i want to say it's an honor to be here. i'm going to introduce a great man, a great new yorker, a great american patriot and a great best-selling author. as publisher, i've had the honor of publishing some of the leading voice of our time but never have we published everyone who seemed to speak so vividly for the disenfranchised and affected voters, the people who feel that no one speaks for them, not the democrats, not the republicans, not the washington establishment and not the media. donald trump has created one of the premiere real estate empires in the world. he's intelligent. he's a man that has a keen sense of what needs to be done to become successful, and in "crippled america" he outlines practical solutions to america's problems. what this book is saying and what makes us proud to publish it is that we can make america great again. in "crippled america," donald trump explains how to make america the great country he knows it can be and america's best days are ahead and still to come. ladies and gentlemen, i present to you the man who has the vision to make america great again, donald trump. it's a great honor. i want to thank you simon and shuster, one of the most magnificent publishers for years and years. i heard about them as being a fabulous -- i was going to say the rolls-royce, i was going to say the harvard or the yale but they really are a great one and i want to thank you very much. you've given us such tremendous support and we did this quickly and we think we did it very effectively. it's been an incredible experience. we wrote a book and the title, "crippled america," is very tough, but unfortunately we have to do what we have to do. and i think one of the reasons we've been doing so well in the campaign is because we tell it like it is. we tell the truth. and america is crippled. we owe $17 trillion and $18 trillion and very soon it's going to be $19 trillion in debt. we have a military that doesn't have proper instruction from leadership. we don't know what we're doing. we're losing all over the world with trade deals. every country, no matter what country you talk about, you can just pick a name out of a hat, they're beating us in trade and we can no longer go longer. i mention sergeant bergdahl. they get five of the people they wanted and they want it badly. and that's not the way it's going to work anymore. so we write about it in the book. we tell lots of different stories of lots of different things and i think it's going to be very instructional, very important to me was instructional. when i did "the art of the deal," i think one of the reasons it was so successful is that it was largely instructional. and even today when i speak, so many people hold up the book "the art of the deal," and the other books we've done. so this is one that probably not since "the art of the deal" -- i have to tell this to louise and simon and shuster that i worked so hard on a book. we wanted to get it out really, really quickly so it remember tained to what's going on right now. it's a moment of time. and we got it done. and david did a fantastic job. where is david? is he here? david did a fantastic job. and all of my people did a great job. they helped me so much so this was not easy getting this in we see the lines -- the lines go down to park avenue. they've been forming since last night. i will be signing books starting at 12:00. we're doing a couple of interviews and signing books at 12:00. that will be very exciting for me. we have fans that bought the book and they just bought it and some have been in line for 12, 14 hours. i don't know how they're doing this but they do it. they find a way. so i'm looking forward to getting to the signings. does anybody have any questions, please? oh, that's all, just about 30 questions. yes, go ahead. katie.... text mr. trump: well, i think it's a different book. we just had polls come out today in iowa where i'm leading. you saw the new poll from iowa. you saw the new poll in new hampshire where i'm leading big. a poll just came out in florida where i'm leading big. georgia, texas. i mean, all over the place. and i think, you know, look, it's -- we're doing well. if you add ben and myself, we're beating everybody by a lot. that seems to be the big story that we're beating -- they call it the establishment. it's really called the failed establishment because the establishment has let us down but i don't know. rill don't know how his book -- i really don't know how his book is doing. well, i think my book is very hard-hitting. his is a different kind of a book and he's a different kind of a person. my book is very hard hitting. it says it like it is. and based on what simon and schuster just told me it's selling like hot cakes so we'll see. we're very different people. we have very different qualities and we are extremely different. and i'm different from all of the other candidates. look, nobody can negotiate trade deals like me. we are going to take the $00 billion a year that we're losing with china, that's going to be turned around. the $75 billion a year that we're short on with japan, the $50 billion a year that we lose to mexico and that's right, there will be a wall built. it will go up. it will be built and people will come into the country legally. so i mean, i'm much different than -- you look at marco rubio. very, very weak on illegal immigration. you look at ben, he's very weak on immigration and he wants to get rid of medicare. i mean, ben wants to get rid of medicare. you can't get rid of medicare. it would be a horrible thing. it actually works. you get rid of the fraud, waste and abuse, it works. so when a man is weak on immigration and wants to get rid of medicare, i don't know how he stays there. go ahead, tom.... text mr. trump: i really think that marco is overrated. had bush been a better messager, he would have a better message. if it was me it would have been a much different story. marco doesn't go to the united states senate. that poll just came out today. and i'm way up in florida over everybody. but marco is a sitting senator and he doesn't show up for the people of florida. and i don't think he should be doing that. now, bush gave a very weak message, i agree with that. it was poorly delivered but the facts are on bush's side and i think ultimately marco will be hurt very badly. and if you look at mr. singer, you have to see where mr. singer is coming from and when you see where he's coming from i think people are going to say, whoa, we didn't know that. but look at marco's stance on illegal immigration. it's really trouble for him. i don't see how he can win. ok. yes. mark.... text mr. trump: marco rubeo's personal finances are discredited. all you have to do is look at his credit card. i mean, he is a disaster with his credit cards. i tell you what, i love florida. i'm in florida all the time. and for years i've been hearing that his credit cards are disaster. i would think when you take a look at it you're going to find that. but his credit card debt and his problems with credit card and what he did when he was running the party apparatus with credit cards, i've heard about it for years. you'll have to find out. >> houses. he certainly lives above his means, there's no question about that.... text mr. trump: well, we're going to look -- i tell you on the debates it's interesting because i don't really care that much. i want a room, i want a podium and let's get going because i don't really care that much. but a lot of the people that are candidates who i respect many of them. not all but i respect many of them. they felt it was very unfair because hillary clinton was given all soft balls. i mean, she wasn't asked one tough question. they didn't talk about her foundation. they didn't talk about any of the problems. they didn't talk about the emails. when the email problem came up, bernie sanders lost his whole campaign. i mean, what he did was so stupid from his standpoint. in order to get a one-minute sound bite of applause, he gave up emails. that was the end of his campaign. first of all, people aren't going to his rallies anymore. he's finished. so unless something happens to her with respect to the emails, she'll easily be the candidate. but i will say this, she only got softballs. that's all she got. and if you look at the way we were treated, it wasn't the same way. with that being said, i don't really care. yes.... text mr. trump: your name is? mr. trump: well, i think the republicans actually are doing a pretty good job overall. they coalesced that last debate. it really started with me. the guy asked me a question. i think harwood is probably finished as a credible reporter. he's a disaster. and it was such a horribly put question and so obvious, and the republicans coalesced around each other. it was actually pretty beautiful when you think about it. and all we want to do is be treated fairly. but with me, i don't care that much. just give me a podium. what i would say is this, the networks have made a fortune because of me. not because of anybody else. you know, they were saying that the last cycle, they had two million and one million people and the networks didn't want to broadcast it because nobody watched, ok. nobody wanted to watch. now they had 25 million people, 24 million people, 23 million people and 16 million people. i mean, give me a break. so somebody said, how did they get there? and actually variety and hollywood reporter who do report this stuff pretty well, much better than the political press, solely for one reason is trump. i'll take the credit. i tell you what i also want, i think that wounded warriors and our veterans should be given some of the enormous profits being made on these debates, enormous profits. by the way, beyond anything they ever envisioned. cnn was going to get $2,000 for 30-second ad. they ended up getting $215,000. they went from $2,000 to $215,000 for a 30-second ad. the networks and cable are making a fortune and i think they should give some of the profits to the wounded warriors and the veterans. that's what i want.... text mr. trump: i'm giving them away. i'm giving the profits of my book, i'm giving them away to -- including the vets. ok. mr. trump: who you with? ok, good. new form of reporting. do you believe it? they used to come up with cameras. they used to come up with a cell phone. go ahead. speak fast.... text mr. trump: i have been amazing with respect to the hiring of women. this building was built as the head person who was fantastic by a woman and that was a time you didn't see it in the construction trades. i mean, it was totally unique. i have many, many executives upstairs and in different buildings that i have that are women. many. a proportion of 50%. might be over 50%. they get paid a lot of money. in many cases more man men doing the same job. so women have always appreciated that about me. i've -- in terms of employment, really a standout and i've been honored for doing so well with women. yes. yes, go ahead. french television. are you going to be voting? i don't think so. so let's go. we don't have to worry about the french right now. go ahead.... text mr. trump: what jeb bush was saying at the last debate, i don't know but he didn't say it well. what is your question, go ahead, behind you? you're with telemondayo. oh, welcome. welcome to -- telemundo. oh, welcome. welcome to trump tower. i like telemundo. i like it better than univision. i'm selling it for $500 million. go ahead.... text mr. trump: because the country is doing so poorly. it's a very accurate title. because the country is doing so poorly. go ahead. mr. trump: that's good. they're going to have some demonstrations. good. because it will get higher ratings if they do. i think it's fine. look, i think they should demonstrate. ratings will go even higher. it's going to be one of the highest rated shows ever. and they're very excited about it. and i have a great relationship, as you know, from telemundo, with the hispanics. you've treated me actually very fairly. won the poll recently in nevada. won other polls and in nevada i think i got 37% and leading everybody. so i've had a great relationship with the hispanics. i have working for me thousands right now, thousands of hispanics. i've had tens of thousands of people over the years working for me. i'm a job machine. i'm a job machine. and one of the things that does come out in every single poll and every single survey is that nobody for the economy nobody's even close. i am two, three -- and you see that -- two, three, four, five times greater than anybody else. and you almost say like it's about the jobs, it's about the economy, then how is anybody going to beat trump, in all fairness? i've had a great relationship with the workers, i've had a great relationship with jobs and i've had an amazing relationship with the hispanics. i think i'm going to win the hispanic vote. i think i'm going to win the hispanic vote. yeah, i think i'm going to get the nomination and i will win the white house. i think beating hillary clinton is going to be easy because her record is so bad. ok. go ahead.... text mr. trump: that's the question i like. how am i preparing for my "s.n.l."? well, i'm meeting with loren michaels in a little while. later on. we're going to sign -- i guess thousands of people online, but we're going to sign and then later on this evening i'm meeting with loren michaels and the whole staff and we'll start the preparation. we'll pick our skits. am i nervous? not too nervous. not too nervous. we'll do a good job and we're going to have a fantastic show. we're all going to have a lot of fun. my jeb impression, no, i don't want to do that. i don't like showing a person sleeping at a podium. very hard. not about money. i came up with the energy. and i just think we need tremendous energy because we need a person that has tremendous personal energy to get us back on track. you can't do that when you don't have that. i think marco is highly overrated. highly overrated. he doesn't have it. and all you have to do is look at his stance on things. jeb, he lacks the quality that you need. we're talking about everybody in the world is ripping us off. you need a very strong person with tremendous energy. thank you very much, folks. i'll take the job. but -- and it's so important. and by the way, ben carson does not have that energy. we need somebody with tremendous energy to straighten out the military, to straighten out isis, to straighten out our horrible trade deals and deal with obamacare. you need someone with personal energy as president. we have a president right now that doesn't have energy. you think obama has energy, he has no energy and he's been a horrible president. we need somebody with great personal energy as a leader so that we can make great deals with other countries and do well in every other respect. and certainly jeb does not have that energy, in my opinion.... text mr. trump: you are where sfr from the guardian. they treat me very nicely in scotland. go ahead. good. thank you. mr. trump: well, we just went over that, honestly. we just went over that. it's -- you know, it's only going to make it hotter. ok. another question. go ahead. say it again.... text mr. trump: you're going to see what we're going to do. you're going to see. but the whole thing with anchor babies i was right. a person has a baby, lives in mexico, lives in asia or -- has a baby, walks across the border, has the baby here. now we're responsible for that person for the next 85 years. i don't think so. and by the way, i was right, they were wrong. the 14th amendment does not give them clearance on that. and if you wanted to do that in mexico or if you wanted to do that in almost any other country where you have a baby in that country and that country has that person for 85 years, including all of the costs of that person, they would laugh you right out of the country. you would be laughed out of the country so fast so that turned out i was 100% right. we'll have to worry about that. we're going to take care of it and it's going to be done in a very humane way but we're going to bring back our country and we're going to have a wall and mexico's going to pay for the wall. you know why they're going to pay? and i have great relationships with mexico and phenomenal relationships with the mexican people. phenomenal. they buy apartments from me. they work for me by the thousands, by the thousands. phenomenal relationships, but let me just tell you. we lose so much money with mexico in terms of trade imbalance. $45 billion last year. plus we give mexico billions and billions of dollars. they will pay for the wall and it will be very interesting. and you know what? people are going to come into this country but they're going to come in legally, sarah. ok. yeah, go ahead. italian daily news.... text mr. trump: can you talk louder? nobody can hear. mr. trump: a lot of european -- he's from italy. a lot of the european countries are going to build walls to stop the immigration. well, walls work. all you have to do is ask israel. walls work if it's properly constructed. not the walls that these characters, these politicians that we have running our country who are a disgrace all talk, no action politicians, they build a wall this big. they drive cars right through it. walls work. all you have to do is go and see israel. they will tell you that walls work. ok. go ahead. go ahead.... text mr. trump: yeah. we need pomp and circumstance. good question, actually. our country has no spirit. our country has no graph toes. our country doesn't feel good about itself and the primary reason is we have no victories. i mean, where have we had a victory? where have we had a victory in trade? where have we had an victory -- this horrible deal we signed with iran where we give $150 billion and we lose everything. we lose everything. it's a laughing stock. worst deal, worst contract i've ever seen drawn. we have no victories, and i do write about it. we need some pomp and circumstance. we need spirit. we need a cheerleader. i thought seven years ago when obama got elected, the one thing i thought he would be a great cheerleader for the country, he's not. he's been a great divider for the country. he's been one of the great dividers of all-time. i'm not saying dress. it has nothing to do with dress. what he says has been very divisive. he's been a great divider for this country and that should not have happened. ok. yes.... text mr. trump: i'll go anyway they want. i don't care too much about the debates. look. i'm the one that gets all the nasty questions really. no one gets all the nasty questions. in a certain way maybe they're defending you although i'll tell you they're not doing it for that reason. i think it's irrelevant. i just -- i like the debates. i've had the debates. i've done well in the debates. as you know every single poll said i won all three debates. now, i don't know if i did or not but i certainly didn't do badly. even cnbc's poll said i won the debates. i like the debates. i think they're good for me, but we have to be treated a little bit fairly. as an example, hillary clinton, no tough questions. i mean, why didn't they ask about bill? why didn't they ask about all of the different things? no tough questions. now, that was staged by the democrats, and frankly they did a very smart thing in the way they staged it. well, we're going to stage something properly also. as far as i'm concerned, i really don't care that much. i just want to debate. i think it's healthy. gets everything into the open. but you don't want people like harwood that read a question, blah, blah, that he wrote carefully wrote. he thought he was such -- his career, in my opinion, his career is probably ruined or certainly threatened. you can ask about anything you want. i mean, you have to ask about anything you want. hillary had only softballs all night long. it was like this, here, hillary, hit this one over the park. yeah. go ahead.... text mr. trump: are you from russia? all right. i think our relationship with russia will be very good. vladimir putin was on "60 minutes" with me three weeks ago, right? putin. and they have one of the highest ratings they had in a long time. so i'm going to give him total credit. but we will have a very good relationship i think with russia. now maybe we won't but i believe we will have a very good relationship with russia. i believe that i will have a very good relationship with putin. go ahead.... text mr. trump: sounds ok to me. yeah. go ahead. mr. trump: well, i think there are a lot of economic issues. we didn't talk about trade. we didn't talk about devaluations, right? we didn't talk about corporate inversions by which the way none of the other candidates, they don't know what it means but we didn't talk about corporate inversions where companies are leaving our country, massive companies because they can't get their money back and because they get lower taxes elsewhere and so they're leaving and taking their jobs with them. the corporate inversion syndrome is a very important thing to be talking about. these are all things that weren't talked about at the debate. instead they talked about fantasy football. i mean, it was a big question. fantasy football. i'm saying, what about corporate inversions? $2.5 trillion at least. i think it's probably twice that number is in other countries wanting to come back and because our system is so corrupt and terrible they can't get the money back to invest in this country. so they don't talk about corporate inversions at the debates. they talk about fantasy football. that's -- i mean, those are a few. yeah. go ahead, sarah. >> yeah, i have it upstairs. i don't know. i'll give it to you upstairs. well, you know, you have to understand i was a developer. a lot of people didn't care about my view. in 2003, 2004, but there was a reuters article taken from a magazine about my stance in 2004, i believe, in july of 2004 and it talked about my stance on how i felt about iraq and i said very strongly exactly what happened. i said you will destabilize the middle east and when you destabilize the middle east, iran will take over iraq. that's exactly what's happening. and they'll take over the oil reserves, which are among the largest in the world, and in addition, other bad things will happen. the other bad things are isis. i said that in 2004, and that was an article that was taken from a magazine which was previous to that. i felt that for a long time. it's a great -- that's your best question that you've ever asked me, sarah. sarah, finally you're asking me this great question. sarah from cnn, terrific person. do i think that it's time for some of the other republicans in the race that are registering zero, in a couple of cases they have zero with an arrow pointing less. it's less than zero. i don't think that's happening. do i think it's time for some of the other republican candidates drop out? yes. there are too many people. well, i don't want to get personal but you can look at the poll numbers. look, if a person's been campaigning for four or five months and they're at zero or one or 2%, they should get out. like, you know, look at me. i go to florida and look at the numbers that just came out in florida. 37%. georgia. those are real numbers. these numbers that these people have -- and i often ask myself -- i asked mark yesterday. what are they doing? do they do this for their brand? because i happen to think it's very bad for their brand. i think walker did a good thing. i think the way walker -- he saw it wasn't happening, wasn't going to happen and he just got out quickly. you know, he was favored, don't forget, you know. that was before trump was going to happen, right? but he was favored for a period of time. he was favored. walker. governor walker. thought he was going to win. he got out. i think the way he got out was great. i think he did a really smart thing for himself. frankly, other people should get out because i would like to personally have more time to talk about the problems of the united states and more importantly how to solve the problems because we can solve the problems. so it's a great question. people should get out, yes.... text mr. trump: evanca. they said one of the biggest -- ivanka. they said one of the biggest applause lines is when i talk about my daughter, ivanka. she was at fortune magazine for something like woman of the year. she doesn't know. ivanka, just say hello, ok. but she's going to be very involved. and melani is going to be involved very soon. oh, ivanka is going to iowa. when are you going to iowa? very soon. yes, mark. good question. i would say i don't see threats. whatever it is i have to do -- mark said, what are your top threats to your candidacy? i don't know. people change minds. i'll make america great again. nobody else can do it. i will make it, in my opinion, better than ever before. and i think that's awfully tough to compete with. and one of the reasons in my book i actually put financials in there. i show you some of the developments. at simon & schuster, you kept me to eight or nine pages, right? and there are four and five on a page but i show you some of the great developments that i've done that are so successful and so incredible and so financially good i show my financial statement from a year and a half and two years ago but now it's better. i don't dough it in a bragadocius way but it's something our country needs right now. we are run by people that are incompetent. we are run by people who in so many words -- i hate to use the word "stupid," i have to use it unless they have bad intentions but i don't think they do but we are run by incompetent people. we have incompetent leadership. i mention corporate inversion. the democrats want the money to come back. who doesn't? the republicans want the money to come back. for three years the democrats have said we want the money to come back. for three years the democrats and the republicans agree 100%. you have to vast majority. maybe everybody. for three years, guess what, they haven't done anything, right? they can't even get along when they agree. so here's a thing where we can take trillions of dollars, bring it back into this country , rebuild big parts of our country with it, companies can spend that money within our country, we agree everybody said it needed to be done for years. well, you're going to look. a lot of controversy with mr. singer. there are those people that probably wouldn't have want him to back but we'll see. i'll talk to you. go ahead. they'll agree. they didn't want to go through the unfair questions. they weren't questions. they were statements. they were given statements in a sarcastic disgusting way. and by the way, i think becky is terrific and i think carl is terrific but i think john harwood is not very good at what he does. but i think becky quick is a terrific person. i think carl is a terrific person. but i will tell you john harwood was a disgrace to cnbc. yeah, go ahead, tom. it's really an interesting question. the question is, should the fed raise rates? they are not raising them because obama has asked them not to raise them. in my opinion, he wants to get out of office because we are in a bubble and when those rates are raised, a lot of bad things are going to happen or potentially going to happen and in my opinion, janet yellin is highly political and she's not raising rates for a very specific reason because obama told her not to because he wants to be out playing golf in a year from now and he wants to be doing other things and he doesn't want to see a big bubble burst during his administration. janet yellin should have raised the rates. she's not doing it because the obama administration and the president doesn't want her to. and if she does it, you see what happens every time there's even a thought of raising them just a little bit. and one of the problems that we have is our currency right now is not competitive with other currencies because if you look at the devaluations of china, of japan, of many, many different countries, they're making it impossible for our companies to compete with them because we don't have leaders that know how to say to china, don't do that, don't do that, because if you do that we're going to put a big fat tax on you. don't do that. you know what, if you said that they wouldn't do it if you had the right message. how about one more question? howie, do you have another question? i love howie. always treats me so nice. who? yes. yes.... text mr. trump: really, i'm focused on one very big election. one very important election. there's some pretty good elections. i'll be watching them on tuesday night but i'll be out there, we'll be out voting. but the election i am watching is the election for the presidency of the united states. that is going to be, in my opinion, this will be truly one of the most important elections we've ever had in this country. we're so far behind and we cannot go another four years with incompetent leadership. good question. fine. ok. what else. one more question. yeah. go ahead. go ahead. that's a good question. ok. so simon & schuster came up to me, they wanted to do a book. they wanted it to do on success and how do you do this and how do you build it and that's what the book is largely about but we talk about the country. i said i'll do it but we have to talk about the country. what happened is they sent this incredible photographer up to do a book cover, to do a picture and he did some great -- almost as good as you. my friend over here. did some great photos. i'm smiling. i'm happy. i look good. everything was fine. and then he took one where i wasn't like really thinking about a photo. and it turned out to be a nasty picture. and then the book was written and the title was given and the only really terrible picture i had was that one and it's a terrible, horrible, nasty picture. but when you're talking about crippled america and you're talking about all of the problems we have, i can't have a big smiley face up there. so that's how we picked it. so we picked the worst photo taken of me. i would have loved to have a beautiful smiley picture but somehow that doesn't go with the title or the book or frankly the contents of the book. and actually simon & schuster agreed with me. ok. say it again. what?... text mr. trump: are the other republicans afraid to debate? well, some of them should be. thank you. simon & schuster, thank you. louise, thank you.mr. trump: so, so incredible. we have had, no matter where we go -- it is a movement, folks. this is a movement. no matter where we go, it is amazing. we go to dallas, oklahoma, all over. we went to iowa -- packed. every place, new hampshire -- packed. every place we go to it is like this. great, great people. home, we will come back, we will do another one. would you like to leave and we will let them come in?... text mr. trump: i didn't think so. but we turned away a lot of people, which is too bad. i know this is a record for the room. it has to be a record because every inch of the room is taken with people and they are standing, they are not sitting. we love setting records. we want the country to set records, right? is what it is all about. i think we are going to do fantastically well in iowa. i could say, if we came in the top four or five, i'm looking to win everything. we want to run the table. that sends a signal. we had to response to hillary. me. nobody respects women more than donald trump. mention her husband's situation. that is now the biggest story on television by a factor of 10. we have to do it. you can't let people push you around. you can't let people tell lies. you can't do it. it is interesting. one of the polls came out from cnbc and they said that if it is trump against hillary in the election, it will be the greatest voter turnout in the history of this country. i can see that. i can see it. i concur. they said all of these people that are going to come in new, they never vote, they don't care. they are going to vote for trump. v they v are v so v fed v up v with v the v system. v this v corrupt, v horrible v system. v one of these guys at 2% said, "he always talks about his polls." i wouldn't talk about it either if i was at 2%. much higher than that. since then. you can't or not the television without these commercials. and fox, every two minutes it is a commercial one trump. it is false advertising. i killed him in the debate. according to reuters, according to everybody, drudge -- he was an amazing guy, matt drudge -- great guy. drudge, 46%. 46%, you have 15 people. a couple of dropped out. time magazine, 49%. think of it. slate, 51%. u.s. news & world report, 69% said i won the debate. debate. how did i do? looking good is very important, right? sometimes, it is not as much like what you say is how did you look. i looked good, didn't sound too good, but that is ok. can't totally kill me because we know it is happening -- well, mr. trump was ok tonight. i'm on every single online poll and i won. bush does an ad. he was talking about something and then i killed him. by the way, i met 69% and he is at 1%. he came in last. i shouldn't even talk about him. it bothers me when i see a guy spending $60 million on ads against me, a lot of it. i say, why is he doing this? he should go home. just relax. this money? now he is spending it against a couple of other guys who were also very weak. he made a statement and after that, his spin people said he was great. he took on trump, he took on trump. he made a statement that was written by his pollster. he said, "mr. trump, why don't you this." i gave him an answer. i said, jeff, i'm at 42% and you are a 2%. it is a simple answer. you started off here, right next to me, and then you were there, then you were there, but the next time, you are going to be off the stage. the question was fine. professionally written. i give them an answer, i blew him away. everyone says trump won the debate. that is it. the ad is him asking the question and i'm standing there like this. in one of them, i'm just about ready to open my mouth. it is almost for us advertising -- false advertising, isn't it? hillary is a disaster. so is jed periods -- jeb. so is everybody. i'm the only one self-funding my campaign area for 50 years and i've never seen anything like trump. i'm special. you're special. i like you. i'm special. isn't that nice? every once in a while, somebody says something that hits you. where are you? who said that? wow. so nice. that is a nice one. every once in a while, there is a statement that is either nice or brutal. i think low-energy was a brutal statement. low-energy can be applied to hillary. i just elect to use the same thing twice on one of my enemies. i consider them enemies. we view this as war. don't we view this as war? country, as well as your daughter. we are in a situation where we have incompetent leadership, our trade deals are killing us, our military is not prepared. general lordy on oh said o -- ordeono said that we are less prepared than at any time since the second world war. we should be very prepared. the world hates us. she has done a terrible job as secretary of state. think of it. putin comes out and says that donald trump is brilliant, doing an amazing job, leading the pack. that's nice. she and my opponents -- wouldn't it be nice if we could get along with the world? wouldn't it be? wouldn't it be nice? refute his statement. how dare you say i'm brilliant. that? if he said it about anyone of them, they would have been happy. we have to get along. the world has blown up around barack obama. i don't know if you saw his recent release. they were talking about the department of state, the state department, and they said very strongly -- the things that they have done. they could not find it. what have they done that is good? they said bringing peace to syria. did you see that? can you believe it? the world is blowing up. the migration from syria. they say one of their key things for the year is bringing peace to syria and the whole world suffers. it is the level of stupidity that is incredible. i used to use the word incompetent. now i just call them stupid. i went to an ivy league school. i'm very highly educated. i know words, i have the best words, but there is no better word than stupid. right? mr. trump: there is none. there is no word like that. we are going to turn things around. as you saw it, with hillary, she has been hitting me really hard with the women card. really hard. i had to say, ok, that's enough, that's enough. we did a strong number. she is not going to win. i love the concept, love, love, love having a woman president -- it cannot be her. she is horrible. she's horrible. you know who does not like -- we got a banca -- ivanka -- i will tell you who doesn't like hillary -- women. women don't like hillary. time. mr. trump said this and that and this and that. she is so theatrical. i should not do it. i just have to turn off the television. she gives me a headache. i think last night i gave her a big headache. i can imagine. i can imagine those discussions. you have to hit back hard. you cannot let them push you around. today, she never even mentioned by name. in the debate, i was mentioned nine times. all of them. i was mentioned nine times. none of the other candidates were mentioned. then she came out with the sexism, which is so nonsense, but she is playing the card. i can imagine. i can imagine those discussions. you have to hit back hard. i hit her back and i talked about her husband and the abuse of women and the tremendous abuse. it is tremendous. i talked about that. today, the television is going crazy. she gets up and makes a speech and does not even mention anything about me. i wonder why. i wonder why. it is really important. a poll just came out where we are tied. another one came out, fox, where we are leading by four or five points against or individually. i have not even focused on her yet. look at the people i focused on. i don't want to really knock them. of those people, that are all gone, they are all people that attacked me. wouldn't it be nice if our country could have that same thing? you attack and they are gone. verbally, that is even better. who wants to use our military? we are going to build the strongest, the best, the most powerful military ever. ever. ever. we are going to take care of our vets. treated horribly. we are going to build the strongest, most powerful military ever. let me just tell you a little secret. the cheapest thing we can do -- i don't think we are going to have to use it. they talk about my tone. i remember when jeb and hillary talked about my tone. they are chopping off christians heads in syria and other places and they want me to have a nice tone. isn't life wonderful, ok? we've got to be tough. we've got to be smart. we've got to have heart. we've got to take care of people. we've got to fix our health care program. this obamacare is a disaster. you people know. you're never going to be able to use it. obamacare is a disaster. we are going to repeal it here and we are going to replace it. there are so many great things we can do on health care. so many good things. and it will cost you less money, and it will be great. you are using programs you will never use. you are paying for it. you will never ever use them. we will get that straightened out. common core instead. it's going to be dead. when i look at parents, i see local parents in iowa and new hampshire and south carolina. i went to a school and i saw the parents. they love their children. they want educate-- they don't care about money, they don't care about anything. love their children. they get together and they do wonderful programs. they are smart people. as opposed to getting it done by bureaucrats who are getting big, fat checks in washington. we have such talent in this country and we don't use it. so, obamacare, dead. common core, gone. we are going to get rid of it. department of education, we are going to get rid of it. we are bringing education -- one thing on education. so, in the world, we are ranked number 28. there are third world countries that are ranked better than us in education and many other things. and yet, per pupil, we are number one, by far. there is nobody close. we spend more money for pupil than any country in the world and we are ranked number 28. which is way down at the bottom, essentially. can you imagine we are ranked number 28 and we are number one? that's what i do like saying about my campaign, i spent less money than anybody else and i have the best results. i'm number one by a lot and i spent no money. i spent no ads. little radio ad in iowa. the station is so lovely. i spent eventually no money. then you have all these other guys -- i spent potentially no money. then you have all these other guys spending vast -- why would we put some of these other guys -- jeb bush, i see rubio on the ads all day long. you know the black background. he should have put something like that behind him. the flag, right? and i like him. i think he is a nice guy. these ads with the backdrop -- it is just somber. think of it. i spent no money and i'm number one. others spent -- they will have spent hundreds of millions of dollars and they are not even in the race. that's what we need for our country. what? "i've got 15,000," i don't know what he means by that. he is not a protester. ok, i love you. when we have a protester. i always have the biggest crowds. i go home and my wife said were there many people? i watched you on television tonight. i said, i had 20,000 people. she said, they didn't show it. they have it right on your face. i have 20,000 people. 20,000 in oklahoma, 35,000 in mobile, alabama. nobody knows. the cameras, i think they might be fixed. except every time there is a guy that stands up protesting, they are on drugs or something, they don't even know what the hell they are doing there, all the sudden, the camera's words from their perfect shot -- the camera s swerve from their perfect shot. and i like it, because it shows the crowd. i will put in some false protesters. it's the only way i'm going to be able to get the crowd in. i talked about trade. i talked about the border. i talked about a lot of things. i started on june 16 in trump tower. it takes guts to run for president. it's like, i've never done this before. we had the largest debate. we have a largest audience in history cable television. then cnn, a couple weeks later, had 23 million. fox had 24 million. the largest audience in the history of cnn. there are cameras on live right now. the largest audience in the history of cnn. if you go back four or eight ye ars, nobody even wanted the debates. i think they were forced to take them for licensing, but nobody wanted the debates. now they are drawing 24 million. now they want to have more. can they go three hours? remember when they had the one go three hours and i said, no, i'm not doing three hours? i could stand up here for 50 hours, but who the hell wants to sit home watching three hours of this stuff? mr. trump:, you have 30 seconds, what would you do about isis? oh, great. by the way, i hate those questions. i want to be unpredictable i don't want to tell -- unpredictable. i don't want to tell isis what i'm going to do. i hate it. remember, i said very strongly -- you have been watching. four years, i said get the oil. iran is taking over iraq. we made a deal for iran. done by some of the dumbest people honors on our side. we gave them -- people on earth on our side. we gave them everything. we won't even get our prisoners back. all we had to do was say we want our prisoners back. they would've said no. i would have said i want them back, you don't understand me, i want them back. they would have said, no, we won't do that. i would've said bye-bye and left. i would have doubled up the sanctions. and i guarantee you -- your prisoners, can we talk? i would have never given the $150 billion. i would have never given them the money. they don't have to buy nuclear. they can buy it. why do they have to make it? we are going to have the nuclear with the inspections. they don't want us there. they self inspect. they have a 24 day inspection, but the self inspection is the beauty. we think you are making nuclear weapons here. let us go and check, mr. president. we will go check. no, sir, we are not making nuclear weapons. we would never do a thing like that. these are people who have deceived us, lied to us, they are terrorists. i used to say it is the worst deal that i have ever seen negotiated. prisoners -- they come back, we get our prisoners. then when i hear the other day that, now this deal is done, now i hear they want to negotiate. they said very strongly, we are going to want a lot for the prisoners. we are going to want a lot. we have already taken off the sanctions. they are already rich as hell. what is going on there? that's why i say, i mean -- some people say it is -- there is something going on that we don't know about, honestly. i'm not saying that. i'm not a conspiracy person. she said, "we are." half the people in this room are saying it. i'm just hoping that you are stupid people, which they are, or there is something going on. because it is inconceivable. did you ever see where some things are so bad that it cannot be -- that nobody can do what they did? right, nobody. iran now wants to negotiate separately. that deal is done. now we want to start a new deal. we want a lot. i want to just shoot the television. you know?? because they would have had it -- and you know what they asked, kerry and obama -- the deal was made. everybody knows it is a horrible deal. it's going to lead to tremendous nuclear proliferation. they are so rich now. they became so rich. and many of the other things that you don't even know about. most people don't even know what the agreement says. but i will try you what, when you look at what we are doing, if we keep going like this, folks, we are not going to have a country left. we are not going to have a country. we are like a dumping ground for the world. we are a dumping ground. they want to take these migrants -- and i feel terrible about the migration caused by hillary clinton and barack obama. they are the ones that caused it. they go into libya, they knocked the hell out of gaddafi. they backed rebels who end up killing the ambassador and the other young people. the ambassador was riding in a jeep, one of our jeeps, of course, a military jeep, holding the libyan flag, "freedom, freedom, freedom," and he gets killed by the same people. so, we backed people that turned out to be far worse than gaddafi. look what we did in iraq. what we did in iraq -- look what we did in iraq. what the hell did we get? we spendt $2 trillion, we have thousands of deaths, and i'm not even talking other side. you are talking about hundreds of thousands, maybe millions. you have thousands of deaths, wounded warriors, who i love. these guys are the toughest -- these are the greatest people. date of when we are leaving. so, i said, man, if i'm the enemy, i'm just going to go wait for 18 months. he gave a date, we are leaving iraq, we will be gone by such and such a time. i'm just sitting there watching and i'm saying, man, that's really stupid. because, believe me, the enemy doesn't want to be killed. you pierce so much they want to go with the virgins up -- you hear so much they want to go with the virgins up wherever they go. using their wives don't know what they are planning -- you think their wives don't know what they are planning? you think their kids don't know what daddy is going to do when he is planning to fly into the world trade center? they know exactly what's going on. frankly, i think they have more love for their family's lives than they do for their own lives. but they still want to live. here is obama. he gives an exact date, so they pull back. everyone says, oh, we are doing so well. why should they fight when they know, in 18 months, they can go in and take the place? so we have isis taking a lot of oil. i said take the oil. remember, i was opposed because i said we would destabilize. you have iraq and iran. there was fighting for decades and decades, for generations. they fight, that's what they do. they fight. how we ever got involved in this mess is hard to believe. they fight, and they were equal militarily. they go this way, 10 feet. they go this way, 10 feet. then they rest. they start fighting again. saddam hussein throws a little gas. everyone goes crazy. back and forth. it's the same. and they were stabilized. and i said, if you go after one or the other, in this case iraq, you're going to destabilize the middle east. and that's exactly what happened. we totally destabilized the middle east. we have migrations largely because of what's happened afterwards. iraq was horrible. it was stupid to go in and we should have never gone in. but we shouldn't have gotten out the way we went out. and we shouldn't have given dates. i would have probably said we would stay forever. and they would have said, oh, man. eventually they would get tired. this guy is crazy. and you make a deal. when you announce you are leaving in 18 months or whatever the hell he said, they just pull back. as soon as we left, they come in. we have the oil. the biggest benefactor of the oil is china. always china. i love china. i love mexico. they are leaders. we have no border. we will build a wall. mexico will pay for the ball, by the way -- the wall, by the way. we are going to have a border. and people are going to come into our country, but they are going to come in through a legal process, not just walking in like nothing. they are going to come in, but they are going to come through a legal process. so, with iraq, so we give them the date and they take over. for four years, i have been talking about it. then because of paris -- i didn't just want to bomb the oil, i wanted to take the oil. so, we are bombing. and we are not really bombing it, because they are still selling it. how could they keep selling -- obama does not want to hit them too hard because he is afraid he is going to pollute the atmosphere. no, this is serious. think of it. he talks about the carbon footprint, and yet he will fly a very old air force one, an old boeing 747, spewing stuff. he's got a problem with the carbon footprint. you can't use hairspray, because hairspray is going to affect the ozone. i'm in my room in new york city, and i want to put a little spray -- me to use hairspray. they wanted to use the pump, which the other one, which i really liked better than going bing, bing, bing, and it comes out in blogs -- globs. they say don't use hairspray, it is bad for the ozone. i do live in a very nice apartment. is beautiful. -- it is beautiful. i don't think anything gets out. and i'm not supposed to be using hairspray. so, obama is always talking about the global warming -- that global warming is our biggest and most dangerous threat. even if you are a believer in global warming, isis is a big problem. russia is a problem. china is a problem. we've got a lot of problems. the maniac in north korea is a problem. he actually has nuclear weapons. that's a problem for we got a lot of problems. that's right. we don't win anymore. if i get elected, we are going to win. if i get elected, we are going to win so much -- we are going to win a lot. you never get tired of leaning, never. but think of it. so, obama is talking about all of this with the global warming. a lot of it is a hoax. it's a moneymaking industry, ok? a lot of it. i want clean air and i want clean water. i want clean, crystal water. and i want clean air. and we can do that. but we don't have to destroy our businesses. and by the way, china isn't abiding by anything. we cannot use coal anymore, essentially. they are buying our coal and using it. when you talk about the planet, it is so big out there, we are here, they are there. it's like they're our next-door neighbor. in terms of the universe. miss universe made a great deal when i sold it. oh, did i get rich. they broke my choppers on that. they said, he talks about illegal immigration. we are not going to put him on television. first of all, univision is being sued like crazy. nbc, i made a great deal with them. far more than i would have ever gotten if i said i think i'm going to sell it. isn't it amazing this can work out? but i love miss universe. and i love the universe. think of it, china is spewing up all of this stuff. we are holding back. with china, we signed these agreements where we have to do it now. they have to do it within 30 or 35 years. i don't think they are going to be doing it. it's like japan. if somebody attacks japan, we have to go and start world war iii. if we get attacked, japan doesn't have to help us. somehow, that doesn't sound so fair. does that sound good? so, south korea -- thousands of televisions per year. i ordered televisions because i have a lot of stuff. they are all made in south korea, most other than sony. sony, in all fairness, has lost its way. a lot of -- samsung, all of them. they are all pretty much -- all of them, right? i think just about. i ordered thousands of televisions, they are all from south korea. we have 28,000 people on the border separating south korea from this maniac in north korea. what did we get? nothing. they are making a fortune. it's an economic behemoth. a lot of you don't know we protect germany. germany, mercedes-benz. how many people have a mercedes-benz question mark we protect germany. it's an economic behemoth. we protect saudi arabia. during the good oil, they were making $1 billion per day. we protect them. our military protect -- they pay us peanuts, like nothing. and if we want to buy, moved to another location -- well, that's very expensive. they want to charge us rent? look, we are run by people that are so bad, so out of their league. and i see it on the stage. a lot of people think i don't like these guys. i do like them, but they don't have business sense. they don't have common sense. they are politicians. they are all talk. they are no action. build a wall. in china, 2000 years ago -- 18,000 miles. we have 2000 miles, of which we really only need 1000 miles, because you have a lot of natural barriers that are extremely tough to get across. we have 1000 miles. china has 18,000 miles or 13,000 miles, and we have 1000 miles. we have modern cranes, caterpillar tractors. i want to use caterpillar, made in america. knockoffs. "make america great" -- mine are made in america. they don't produce as many as i would like because, frankly -- i mean, it's amazing. those hats are amazing. anyway, but i also knew that as soon as the hats -- we have a website. as soon as the hats came out, i knew the press would be calling. first hour when the hats were announced, i get a call from "the new york times." mr. trump, where are those hats made? i said, america. i knew it. i knew it. as you know, if i would have said china, i would have been in big trouble. but they are being knocked off all over the world. they are like helmets. i see them all. what are you going to do? we have to build a wall. when i talk and i'm up on the stage with these guys, these people, wonderful people, and a very nice woman, carly. she's a very nice woman. when i'm up on the stage with them, they think i'm crazy. were going to build a wall, it's going to be a great wall -- we are going to build a wall, it's going to be a great wall. i'm talking about, if they ever get up there, they are never come down, because it is too dangerous. you ever see what they do now with these little walls? they build a ramp. wouldn't it be cheaper to knock the wall down? they drive over it with jeeps loaded up with drugs. there was a picture in "time magazine." it's a little ramp that goes over. make money. we get the drugs. think of it. we could build a wall. we get the drugs, they get the cash. not so good, right? we don't like that deal. our politicians don't know. they don't know. so, when i say mexico is going to pay for it. they are not business people. mexico makes a fortune off the united states. number one, we give them a lot of money. but in addition to that, they are taking our businesses. you are talking about a trade deficit. mexico, in a certain way, is a mini version of the new china. mexico is making an absolute fortune, peanuts compared to the cost of the wall. let's say the cost of the wall is $10 billion. i can do a great job with that. i think we will have a lot of money left over. 20 years ago, they wanted to build a wall. people that are opposed to it now, they wanted to stop and build a wall. you know one of the reasons they did not build the wall? because of the environmental protection agency. they could not get an environmental impact study improved -- approved. the there was a toad or a snake or something in the way -- because there was a toad or a snake or something in the way. in the south china sea, there were these low-level landmasses that were covered by water, but pretty close to the town. china sends in massive excavators and they are building military fortresses in the south china sea. a friend of mine, who is one of the biggest and richest people in china -- they are great people. they are fun. then leaders are too smart -- their leaders are too smart for our people. they won't need to smart when i put my people there. -- they won't be too smart when i put my people there. -- no, the donor now is carl icahn. great businessman. all these businesspeople call. friend of mine. i call them and i say, you are actually doing it. they are joking. how long did it take to get started? did you have to get a new environmental impact study approved in order to excavate? he looked at me and goes, i hope you are kidding when you say that. they conceived of the idea and they started digging four hours later. there is no go through 25 years of environmental impact, you are going to hurt the snail. you're going to hurt this. they are doing a big thing. they excavated -- massive. they are ripping the hell out of that ocean. they are ripping it and they are taking that derek and they are putting it -- that dirt and they are putting airfields. they couldn't do it. we could not get an environmental impact -- that's probably not the only reason it happened. i heard the costs were too high. i'm under budget, i'm headed schedule. look at campaign -- the campaign. a guy has $59 million and he was down at the bottom. i'm nothing and i'm at the top. it's the same thing. the crowd is spellbound. but he has one problem." the problem -- "the problem is he speaks through the applause." and you know why? because i'm so excited, because we have so much potential. i don't want to wait for your freaking applause. we have so much potential. there are so many things to do. i don't want to wait. i just did it again. you were getting ready to give a big applause, because you like that, and i'm speaking. i killed the applause. he is right. but i'm not a speaker. i'm a doer. i get things done. she has lower energy than jeb bush, which is hard to believe. she does. maybe it's rude, maybe it is not. it doesn't matter. we have a much bigger problem. have to save our country. so, if i'm rude, if people think i'm rude -- i'm actually a nice person. i want to help people. i want to see migration. i want to do a safe zone in syria. i don't want them coming here. we don't know who they are. they are undocumented. saudi arabia, these states are not spending. they have to spend. they have to pay. we are protecting them. they wouldn't be there for two minutes if we weren't protecting them. they have to start paying. they are not taking anybody. how about germany? can you believe what she is doing to that country? and she was the person of the year and i wasn't. what are you going to do. -- to do? i think she has made a terrible mistake. we will find out. time will tell. they have tremendous crime problems. i think she has made a tremendous mistake. but in syria, with other people's money, meaning the gulf states and germany and others -- germany is paying a fortune to accept all these people. we do a massive safe zone. eventually, when this whole catastrophe straightens out, which i will probably be able to get it straightened out. when it is straightened out, they could go home to their country, to their area. it is interesting, i have thousands of people to work for me. thousands. i have people that come from far. a are all here legally, don't worry about it. i use everify. they go and check. everybody walk their dog -- walks their dog. they said they found one person out of hundreds and hundreds. i don't believe it. it is possible -- we do have 11 million people in the country. it is probably a much higher number than that. it is probably a much higher number. but we have to do something about it and we are going to. so, i just want to finish by saying this. look, we have a situation that is out of control. our country is a dumping ground for the rest of the world. we are laughed at by the rest of the world. and when i started this journey, and it is a journey, and i do love you people come you are amazing people. and by the way, you are so smart. well, mr. trump's people are blue-collar. i love blue-collar. i'm honored by that. they are not blue-collar. we have blue-collar, executives, young people. they say the audience is old. it's not older. the other night in iowa, i told that, and actually we have so many young people, the place erupted. we have an amazing thing happening. are marginalizing you. it is disgusting. when i started this journey -- that's what it is, a journey, of movementremember the old days of the silent majority? this is a noisy majority. i have people and you can't even hear -- this is an amazing thing that is happening. i received a call from a reporter who happens to be liberal. we can have a couple of them. a guy who's really respected and he says how does it feel. he says what you have done has never been done in the history of politics in the united states . even cnn says number one political story -- isis was number two. not the hell out of them and make me number one next year. one of the great phenomenons i've ever seen and politics. they sent 3000 people home. can you believe it? it is unbelievable. it is beautiful what is happening. newt gingrich said he's never seen anything like it. he said it's never been done before. i said it's fine, but if i don't win, it's a waste of time. he says what you have done is incredible. you have totally changed the landscape for politics. the landscape of politics. there has never been anything like your campaign. i said you don't understand. if i don't win, i will consider this a total and complete waste of time. i really do because we are not going to do anything. i had crowds and trump ran this rather good campaign. if we don't win, it is a total waste of time. if you have someone else in there, you won't be able to do what i want to do. when i say mexico is going to pay, they all laugh. these are people, they think it is funny. they are making billions and billions of dollars on deficits that we have. the wall is tenets. they are going to pay for the wall. now they don't laugh because they are starting to agree with me. the other day, ted cruz says we are going to build a wall at the southern border. and my wife is sitting -- where does that come from? he's a good guy but i think it was on fox, he said we are going to build a wall at the southern border. they are all trying to catch up with me because when i did this stuff, it was out there. now, i'm the one everyone wants to aspire to. so ted is up and he is talking. my wife is sitting there and she says darling, did you hear that? that's the first time -- she hasn't heard that from any other candidate. we are going to build a wall and mexico is going to pay for it. when i started the journey, it was amazing. i went down to the lobby of trump tower and it looked like the academy awards. when i came down the escalator, i said we are going to do things -- i mentioned illegal immigration. it wasn't even on the radar. now it's one of the big subjects. one of the polls that came out -- cnn just came out with a poll a week ago, 36 percent for trump. on the economy, they give me 55%. that's with 16 people at the time. the budget and the economy, i when it hands down. but at illegal immigration, i'm almost at 50%. people want to be protected. they need strength and toughness. i know a lot of tough guys and they are not smart. they are the easiest. you have to be smart. you have to be tough because the world is trying to take advantage of us. that first couple of weeks with illegal immigration and then kate was killed and an unbelievable young man, just shot through the head. kate was shot by a guy -- these are too. you have the economy and the jobs being lost and all of this stuff. all of the sudden, people are coming over and now they are starting to say the wall. we have to be progressive and are thinking. i mean smart. i don't mean progressive like bernie sanders. think of it. this guy wants to raise your taxes to 90%. i love this area. great golfing area, am i right? no more golf if bernie sanders -- you won't have any golf anymore. you won't have any money left. this guy is a total disaster. hillary says i would like to run against trump. believe me, chuck todd, meet the press, his show is dying. he never treated me fairly. he gets the highest rating he's had in years. i won't even give you the numbers. i saved his life and then he goes hillary clinton says she would most like to run against donald trump. trust me, the last person -- she had a tough night last night. she had a tough night looking at the beauty pageant. hillary clinton said -- here is chuck todd. he's a nice guy. he goes the clinton campaign says they would most like to run against trump like i'm some kind of sap. when they say they want to run against me, that means they don't want to run against me. it is reverse psychology. they say they want to run against me. i'm winning and tied in the polls -- look at what happened to all the guys i hit -- they are gonzo or they are failing badly. hillary clinton, think about it. chuck, reported properly. they don't want to run against trump. the husband wants to come and accuse me of things and the husband is one of the great abusers of the world? give me a break. the last person she wants to run against his me. i was talking about trade, obamacare and the second amendment. the second amendment will be saved, by the way. it will be saved. the second amendment will be with us. they want to get rid of bullets, think of paris, think of los angeles. they had no guns. paris has the toughest gun laws in the world and france, you get caught with a gun, the only one who has guns are bad guys. they call the guy a mastermind, but he's a more on. the french police did a great job and our los angeles least did a phenomenal job. wouldn't it be wonderful -- this guy with the hat, he has a lousy head of hair but he's a strong guy. wouldn't it be nice if they had a gun -- so -- you know what they were doing? get over here, 130 people because there are people that are so badly injured. these are people who gave a party in honor of their marriage. they gave them a party. she came on a fiance permit and she was radicalized and he was probably radicalized i her. people knew that they were radicalized and people in the area -- who the hell doesn't know? and they did not want to talk about it. you have to report these people. no more nonsense. they did not report them because they don't disagree with them. give me a break. we have to change. i was going to talk about trade and all of this, but after paris and california, and there will be others because they have no fear of us, it has totally changed and my poll numbers went up 10 points. they say people view you as a tough cookie. they are not going to take this craft. -- this crap. me. ford is closing plants all over michigan. how the hell does that help us? who are the people who think that is good for us? we have plants all over the place and then they're going to sell cars and parts -- four will say you have to stay in the united states. it's very simple. how about nabisco announced in chicago they are going to leave and go to mexico. we are not eating oreos anymore. it's not going to happen. they are going to make a product and sell it in the united states? it's not going to happen. we don't get anything out of anything. that iran deal was a disaster. this came to me two weeks ago. the iran deal is the worst deal i've ever seen negotiated. we gave them a rack. that's even better. we gave it ran a rack -- we gave iran iraq. take a look. among the largest oil reserves in the world. we gave them by decapitating a rack -- iraq, not only did they make a great deal, we gave them iraq. now they have the largest reserves in the world. that's even better than the original. whoever is representing iran is doing a heck of a job. we are not going to have deals like that with me. we are going to become rich again. we are going to become safe again and we are going to become strong again. weeks to go -- no matter what is going on in your life, you have to go out and vote. don't go say trump is going to do well. the more we can win by, the more power we have because it is like a mandate. it has been an honor to be here, but we will make america great again, i promise. thank you. >> we are not done a take it, we're not gonna take it any more >> we're not gonna take it, no, we ain't gonna take it anymore >> we're not gonna take it, we're not gonna take it anymore ... textmr. trump: beautiful. so nice. outside angry. they love me. i love them. we have over 1000 people outside. hundreds in the second auditorium. you people got the good real estate. me or the message, or a combination, but i brought back a term that hasn't been used in a long time for the silent majority. there is a tremendous silent majority that politicians have taken advantage of. they have taken advantage of the people of this country long enough. largely incompetent except when it comes to getting reelected. that is what they do. i have contributed to everybody. who knows them better than me? they are great at one thing. don't make waves, surf it out. get reelected again. i have been watching it for so many years. i personally am sick and tired of it. this country. third class citizens. it is going to stop. they think isn't that great? they make speeches. nothing happens. two weeks ago, they had the longest waits in reception rooms and reception areas in the history of the veterans administration. people waiting three days, four days, five days to see a doctor. we are going to straighten that. it is called management. that is all it is. bush -- i'm the most militaristic person in this room but you have to know when to use it. think about it. we spent $2 trillion in iraq. china is taking the oil. isis may have it and iran may have it but china is taking the oil. can you imagine? we never do anything right with china. we spent $2 trillion, thousands of lives of great people, mostly young, beautiful people, wounded warriors who i love all over the place, not treated properly by the way. the parts they want to give up, they are giving oil to isis. isis has the oil. you remember when i said you shouldn't go in. reuters wrote an article in 2004 that trump, don't go in. you're going to ruin the balance. iran and iraq were the same. twins. they have wars for years. one goes this way, one goes that way. if you take out one, the other is going to take over. we took out one and look at the mess we have. we have destabilized the middle east and it is a mess. the other day i'm watching. he is saying we got saddam hussein out, didn't we? i'm not a fan of saddam hussein, but he ran the place, and he had no weapons of mass destruction. now instead of saddam hussein we are far more brutal. we have isis. we will have iran. they are making deals. the leaders of iraq are visiting the leaders of iran. what do we get out of this? we have stupid leadership. it was bad. at some point we have to go out. we have to rebuild this country. we have to rebuild our country. we have to. our bridges are falling apart. our roads are a mess. our schools, our highways. everything. who is better at infrastructure than trump? two days later the was a disaster. obama said that with yemen. he announced yemen was a victory. then three months later it was a disaster. we don't have yemen. we don't have anything. we send over to our allies, if you call them that, there's no word for them. iraq isn't a country. it is a corrupt people that string something together. it is not a country. we send over to our allies 2500 humvees. so when i heard 2500 i thought it was a typo in the new york times. they mean 25. they mean 2.5. they mean 250, maybe. 2500 humvees, armor plated. when the bombs go off you don't lose your legs and your life in your arms. great vehicles. one shot is fired and these guys run away and the enemy picks up 2500. think of it. we need the right thinking. i said, what a terrible statement he made because when we had to leave, you can talk about surging but at some point we have to leave, we can't stay there forever. we would loosen up these rules. we have so much oil under our own feet we don't need them for those things because of new technologies. television, political people, many of them with the administration. i think they mean well. they don't have a clue. they say isn't that silly? he says take the oil. you know where is the oil now? iran and isis. everybody has it but us. i thought he was great. the highest academic. i went to a really good school, you had to be smart to get in. that was before i was trump. but you have to be really smart. that is the hardest one. even then, by the way. general douglas macarthur to this day was the greatest students 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 the generals but i see some of these guys. can we defeat isis? i don't think so. i don't want to use names. when president obama said we were going to attack a certain city and he said in two weeks we are going to attack this city, and we're going to attack from the front, and we want to use drones. the enemy is saying -- it is brutal. it turned out to be a brutal situation. i said that is great. that is camouflage. what a smart thing he is doing. he is probably going to do the opposite. it was the craziest thing i've ever seen. something that should have taken 24 hours, it was months. i wonder what general macarthur and general patton are doing now in their graves? spinning. saying i don't believe it. i don't believe it. we have such a great country but we have gone down so far. china yesterday, i'm big in the world of financial, cnn did a poll, i was through the roof on the economy. i have to be accurate because otherwise they will have a front page story that i was false. i was many times over number two. it is a pretty important subject. leadership. i killed everybody on leadership. i did great on the military. i think the military would be just as good as the economic for me personally. these poor people. i would be creating things that nobody would be playing with us. nobody. nobody. show how bad a condition our nuclear weapons are in. did anybody see that? can you -- even if it is true, we are putting this for the world to see. the reason they did that is the president wanted the press to see how weak our nuclear capabilities were. the telephones don't work. they have wires. the wires were rotting. to work the telephones, the silos were rusting and rotting. the kids said we don't know if they work. great. damaged and old. this is our nuclear. assuming it is true, who the hell would show that to the enemy? the reason he did was because he wants funding. we have to get smart people, tough people. china. they did the largest devaluation in the history of china. they think the history but they say only the last two decades. now i feel better. they brought it down to two decades. in other words, 20 years. ok. what that means is, you hear the sucking sound. jobs. that means money. that means all of this coming out. they did a number on us. when they did the last one which wasn't long ago, it was a much more modest devaluation, i said i can't believe obama is allowing this to happen. we have all the cards. i told the press it is the greatest theft in the history of the united states, what china has done. we have rebuilt china. our money has rebuilt china. i wouldn't do that. it makes it look small time. massive highways, massive roads. i was in dubai. great place for they have an airport, it is like magic. the most incredible thing you have ever seen. you go to qatar, you go to all these places. we land at kennedy where they have hangers that are falling down, rotting and rusting. it is such a shock. we go to kennedy. you get used to things. when your house gets dirty. these are so bad, these airlines are so sad. you look at the age of our infrastructure. look at all of the different things. even the airplanes. they like qatar. they asked me to go to a dinner and i said i can't. they said we will pay you a lot of money. it was a lot of money to have a dinner. like a tremendous amount of money. i said i'll go. you're going to get hundreds of thousands of dollars to have a dinner two blocks from your house and you don't do it it is time to retire. do you agree? i went. it was so amazing. i said to the man of the airline, what is the average age of your planes? he said about a year and a half. the average age of some of our airlines, 32 years. 15 years pre-28 years. and you see it. i said how do you finance your planes. he looked at me like finance? we don't finance. we pay cash. saudi arabia. i was impressed. it wasn't a question. when i went to qatar, i went into an airline terminal that was the most beautiful terminal i have ever seen. the most magnificent. they had lounges, they had spas. before you get on the plane you can get a massage. i'm not into that though. i don't like people touching me. i said this is the most beautiful airline terminal i've ever seen. he said no. this is temporary. our new one is being built over there. there must have been 40 cranes. this was a tear down. we are doing it wrong. saudi arabia, i have good relationships with saudi arabia and mexico, as i do with everybody. they pay millions of dollars. am i supposed to dislike them? china. i sell apartments for $18 million. some of the cheap ones are $10 million. i don't even bother to sign those contracts. i get it from saudi arabia. from japan. from everybody. i love these people. the problem is mexico, i love the mexican people. they have tremendous spirit. when i opened, trump has taken more income than any human being i've ever seen. the press changed my statement. they used half a sentence. it turned out i was right. i was talking about illegal immigration. it turned out that i was right. when you look at saudi arabia, when you look at mexico, they are taking over. nabisco is closing a factory in chicago. they are moving to mexico. this big factory. 1200 jobs going to be lost in chicago. no more orioles. oreos. they announced. they are doing other things. it is great. mexico. if you can get away with it it is great. i have such respect for the leaders of mexico and their negotiators. i don't dislike them. the biggest bank in the world is a tenant in one of my buildings. it is an incredible bank. citibank is a tiny subsidiary compared to it. i never have to worry about the rent. i love these people. apartments. with mexico i have hired thousands over the years, thousands from mexico and lots of other places. the problem is, their leaders are smarter and sharper, and more cunning. they are much more cunning. the word cunning is important. they know what is going on. they are whipping us left and right. all of these countries. i could mention 100. we don't make good deals anymore. one of our great dealmakers, carl icahn. i had dinner with him and said carl, if i do this, and i'm doing well, are we leading in every single poll? we have to get there. i was called by one of the biggest journalists in the world. he said mr. trump, could i ask you a question? how does it feel? how does what feel?... text mr. trump: you are right about that. it will not happen with trump. believe me. with trump, it won't happen. this guy -- i hope this question is worth it. this guy has been standing up for the entire thing. i hope it will be a good question. go ahead.... text mr. trump: come on. got to go. go ahead. nuclear plants -- mr. trump: in nuclear plants in the united states. i'm not surprised to hear that. the security -- mr. trump: did i do the right thing? by the way, he happens to be right. you do not even have to tell me. i guarantee you that they have substandard parts in nuclear and airplanes, because they get them from china. what you get from china, you do not know what the hell you are getting. finish your question fast. the the security --... text mr. trump: i got to go. mr. trump: i think your question is great. he is talking about counterfeit parts, to cut to the chase. we do not have to know what -- that you are in the nursing home business. are you trying to talk to some of us about joining her home? we think your point is good. give it to him. good. i'll read it tonight around 1:00 in the morning instead of sleeping. it's good. go, sit. come on, come on. let's go. what a nice guy, right? hey, he means

trump: it can't be. great question. it cannot be just incompetence. because it is so bad what is happening to the vets and the v.a. it is so bad that it cannot be just incompetence. it is got to be theft and a lot more than what we are hearing about. so i would do that. thank you. thank you. who wants to leave? does anybody want to wait? mr. trump: i have all night. mr. trump: how about the epa? how about our common core folks in washington? how about common core in washington? right. good question. yes, sir. young guy here.... text mr. trump: my uncle was a professor at mit. mr. trump: he is

go ahead. mr. trump: honestly, i think it is wonderful. i want to inbuilt -- rebuild our infrastructure first. i think it is wonderful. go ahead. yeah? go ahead. wait for that mic. go ahead. just shout.... text priority? mr. trump: i have so many friends whose family is devastated by alzheimer's. we can get an answer. there are some answers. we've made les projects -- less progress the with hope. yes, ma'am. yes? endearing new hampshire to you?... text mr. trump: the people. honestly, i have had such a great response. somebody, one of my friends, thank you. one of my friends was asking me what was it like? i have been here a lot. we have done so many town halls and so different meetings. we are having so many people we need -- which worked out well. i am going to go see the other auditory where they did not have the great real estate. i'm going to see the people outside that are waiting to see us. they're like the people that built this country. they work hard. they are smart, industrious, and they love this country. they want to see it happen. they are great people. i was so honored, because recently everybody said that a walker would win iowa. and bush, who's falling like a stone, because he's -- tell me is that really so -- that is from a different planet, right? i do not get it. but they said bush he's being down big. and walker, you have to remember walker grew up a little in iowa. became the governor of the adjoining state. they have massive deficits. they have very poor employment, new jobs. they have a lot of dissension. a lot of problems in wisconsin which is a state i love. but they have a lot of promise with her education. and with their debt. they are putting up tremendous debt. i was very nice to walker. i gave him money for his campaign. i get to anybody. i give a lot of money. he came up to see me six month ago. he gave me a plaque. you need some money? i cannot be mean to someone -- there are couple of guys running that have been so nice to me. i want to. one of his underlings said something nasty about me. i said, finally i can talk about wisconsin. it was so good. he plunged in iowa. and i am leading iowa big. we are leading new hampshire big. you know, we are leading nevada big. what i loved about nevada. they did a second part at the poll. it came out last week. everybody was in shock. i was not because i will bring jobs back into this country. i was leading all candidates in the hispanic vote. everybody was surprised. why? i employ thousands and thousands of hispanics. they are amazing people but people were surprised to see that. north carolina we are leading by massive numbers. south carolina. we are leading everywhere. a poll came out 32% nationwide. another one 24%, fox. people are tired of what is happening to our country. they are tired of being ripped off by everybody in the world. they are tired of it. you know -- and i used the expression a lot -- the american dream. look at all those cameras blazing back there. this is live all over the place. on fox, on cnn. i get up and i speak from the heart. i really do. look, there is nothing. i speak from the heart. but -- but a big portion, not all of it, but a big portion of the media, the political media is so dishonest. they are really dishonest people. you probably heard me say i always say i like to save the american dream is dead but i'm going to make it bigger and better and stronger than ever before, ok? i say it all the time. the american dream is dead but i'm going to make a bigger, better, storm of it ever. so i go home a month ago. my wife some is 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 it is dead, but we are going to make a great. so i turn on television. i turn on television and i see it. it says, the american dream is dead. period. i said, that is terrible. it is dishonest. but the fact is, a lot of people think it is dead. and it has got a lot of problems, no question about it. but we are going to make our country great again. we are going to do things with our country -- the world again and not laughed it like we are all a bunch of stupid people. it is not going to go on any longer. we are not going to take it any longer. we are going to make america great again. thank you, and i love you, people. i love you people. thank you. thank you very much. thank you, thank you. thank you. we're not gonna take it no, we ain't gonna take it we're not gonna take it anymore we're not gonna take it no, we ain't gonna take it we're not gonna take it anymore ... text mr. trump: was that good? mr. trump: i will. mr. trump: thank you. cable satellite corp. 2015] visit ncicap.org]... textany -- mr. trump: thank you, everybody. thank you. oh boy, oh boy. this is great. do we love delaware? do we love it? yes? when i left the office i asked for a couple of things. i said, number one, i spent a fortune in delaware. nobody does that, right? it is a great place. i said to my people, we do a lot of business in delaware. that means taxes and everything. how many entities do we have registered in delaware, like companies? i figured they would say maybe two or three. 378. so we have 378 entities registered in the state of delaware. meaning i pay you a lot of money. i don't feel at all guilty. i don't know. they might be off by a couple, but that is about it. they had about 12 minutes to get me the answer. it is a lot. good that is good. all right? all right. it is a great place. great people. they have done an unbelievable job very hello, folks. hello. thank you. still can't believe, 378. here is the bad news. we will get through this because we are going to fix it. we're going to fix it fast. real median household income in delaware has declined by more than $10,000. since 2000. no good, right? i'm doing my share. delaware lost 1/3 of its manufacturing jobs since china enter the world trade organization in 2001. this region of the state also lost 1/3 of its manufacturing jobs to china. lying ted cruz supports chinese currency cheating. think of it. he voted against an amendment to try and block currency cheating by china and ted cruz voted against it and it is the single biggest 11 that china and other countries have against us for destroying our businesses. this guy voted against it. it is almost impossible to vote against it if you love our country. you know what happened? somebody got to him and said we want you to vote against it because some company or country did not want it and this is what we have running for office. we are going to end it. terrible i actually had to have that one check. how can you vote against that he voted. lying ted cruz. delaware was hit hard by closures of its auto manufacturing plants over the years, including chrysler and gm plants. crews and kasich support the transpacific partnership which will absolutely kill the auto industry in the country. i am against it. i have been fighting it. kasich voted for nafta, which has cleaned our clock four years. transpacific partnership is worse than that. it is going to be worse. we have got to stop it. we have got to stop it. obama wants it. if obama wants it, you know it is no good. man. i hate to do it. it is so negative, right? but it does not matter. if i become president, we're going to turn it around. we are going to make great trade deals. we are going to bring our job back and keep the jobs that we have here. believe me. the number of food stamp recipients in this county has increased sixfold. that is a lot. since 2000. 6000 food stamp recipients, you have 36,000. we have to get going. we will get it changed. delaware voters are concerned about the possible intake of syrian refugees. is that unbelievable? the state has seen large increases in its foreign-born population. we don't even know where they come from. we don't know where they come from, who they are. they are totally undocumented. we have seen a large intake. with the problems we have, we have seen a large intake. remember when they said it was 3000, then 6000? i said it was going to be a lot more like 200,000. i was right. we are taking in tens of thousands of people. we all have hearts and we want to take care of that, but we don't know where these people are coming from. they have no documents, totally undocumented. we have enough problems in our country. we have $19 trillion in debt. we have the southern border which is like a piece of swiss cheese and we will talk about it. we will build the wall, yes. we will build the wall. build the wall. build the wall. somebody, a reporter -- by the way, the world's most dishonest people back there. looking all the cameras going. they are dishonest. not all of them, but most of them. last night, bill o'reilly said, because there is a movement, no matter where we go, there are more people pouring in. look at this place. that is a lot of people. bill o'reilly on fox said last night that what has happened with trump is one of the biggest political events that he is ever seen. i will go a step further. he actually said it is the biggest medical event that he has seen in his lifetime -- biggest political event that he has seen in his lifetime. he is a pro and an amazing guy, tough and smart. he does not always treat me great, but that is ok. said that biggest political event that he is ever seen in his lifetime. i have to tell you that there is something going on that is incredible. we go to alabama, we had 35,000 people and we won alabama, we won arkansas, we won florida, and we won south carolina. and we won new hampshire and we won connecticut and we won so much. why did we win two days ago with record numbers in new york? you know what is nice about winning new york? really, and not just the fact that it is big and we won almost every delegate. we won by a massive amount. we had 62%. when you think of it, you have three people running, it is almost impossible to break 50 and we got 62%. it really is. you know what is nice about winning new york? those people know me well. you don't know me as well. you just take my money with all the taxes. i have known delaware for a long time and it is a great place. we are going to get rid of the bad stuff that we talk about her we're going to get rid of it. we have to do that also at a federal level. you cannot allow policy that allows china and mexico and japan and vietnam and india, you can't allow policy that allows these businesses to be ripped out of your state like candy from a baby. like candy from a baby. it will end and we will talk about it. what is nice about new york is they know me the best. i grew up in new york and i have been in new york a long time and i have been very public. i have been well vetted. if i sneeze, it is a big story. they know me well. to win by that kind of a margin is not just the size of new york, but even a person from another state called me and said the nicest part, they know you so well in new york, and for you to win by this massive number, a record-setting number, is really a great tribute. i never thought it that way. i just wanted to get over 50%. great people in new york. i went over the state and i new york state very well. you had syracuse and rochester, we want to long island, we went all over. suffolk county. it is horrible what is going on. it is the same everywhere. i always ask for these things. this stuff. i asked for it and say the statisticians, they get it out of books, government books, and i say give me the information. i have done many speeches in many places over the last couple of months and it is always the same. the manufacturing jobs are being stolen. our jobs are being taken. we are losing on every front. there is nothing good. our country does not win anymore. whether it is delaware or whether it is syracuse, new york, or whether it is albany -- we had 21,000 people in albany show up. incredible people and in a great arena. we had 21,000 people. we have thousands and thousands of people show up at every stop and it is always the same. i say get me the information and if the information was good, i would like to read it. it is always the same. the jobs are being stripped. the factories are closing. you ride through some of these communities and you go from the airport to a venue like this and you see all of the closures. you can see it. a thriving place 10 years ago, 20 years ago, and it has been stripped. we are not going to let it happen anymore. we are not going to be the dummies. we are not going to be the dummies. it is terrible. i even said when they gave me the statistics, i said, what do i need them for? i have a good memory. a great memory. all i have to do is get up and say manufacturing down 30%. it is the same thing everywhere. in some cases, you have to say local politics and local politicians, but the megadeal is what is happening with our country. our leadership is terrible. our leadership is incompetent. we don't know what we are doing. there really is no leadership. you have a president, he goes to cuba and watches a game and a big tragedy happens, watches the end of the game. he lands in cuba -- no. he lands in cuba and there's nobody to greet him. here is the difference. no problem with cuba, by the way. it is time to make a deal. i would like to see a better deal. you land in cuba and no one is there. in the history of air force one, which is pretty long, it is probably the first time the plane landed with no one there. there was not the head of state, castro, anybody, and then he goes the saudi arabia and same thing happens. the big leaders are not there to greet him at the plane. you know what i would do? if i said, how are we doing? who is here to greet me? i am on the air force one. we don't have anyone to greet you, mr. president. here is what i do. pilot, go back to washington. go back to washington. and i love the cuban people and i love the saudi's. go ahead. let's have some fun. it's friday. let's have some fun. let's have some fun. i have all the time in the world. lots of it. great people. great people in this country. we are going to have apple and we are going to have companies, you watch. they're going to start making their products in our country. you watch. you watch. i know how to fix the system. you have these guys that talk about free trade. look what free-trade has done to our country. no matter where i go, no matter where i go, look at what has happened with free-trade. i believe in free trade, but i don't believe in being stupid. i don't believe in these deals. a are so bad. we have to make great deals. we have a lot of time. i told the story a couple of times. he is so honored by it. a friend of mine is dying. he is very sick. he is the toughest guy and has always been the toughest guy. successful. he made himself successful. he just made himself. he is a good person, but really a tough person and i like him. he is a winner and he gets sick. he was supposed to be dead year ago. he has good genetics or something. we speak to the doctors and say, how is he doing? we can't believe it. he is alive a year longer than he is supposed to be. i call him every couple of days. how are you doing? i'm all right. in a way, it reminds me of our country. our country has been so abused for so long by incompetent politicians, by horrible deals, by horrible deals. we have potentially the greatest military in the world, but it is being decimated with cuts and problems. we don't take care of our fats. we lose on everything will front -- every single front. and then we make trade deals that are hard to believe. a friend of mine said how is it possible to make a deal like that? they must be stupid. they are not stupid. they get major campaign contributions. they are paid off with campaign contributions. it is sad. it reminds me of my friend. this country, it keeps going. the debt keeps getting larger. now we are up to $19 billion. they signed a horrible budget deal three months ago, which funds the syrians coming in. it takes care of a limo -- care of illegal immigration coming in. it takes care of obamacare, which is a disaster. we will repeal it and replace it. it reminds me of my friend. it shows you how great our country is that our country can be abused by politicians who are so corrupt or incompetent that we continue to go along. we are sitting on a big bubble and we had better get going fast because it is not going to be pretty. it will be like no other. we had better get going fast or it -- get going fast. thank you. we love our country. the thing we have in common is we love our country, right? to another one and another one and then i come home. i should be home at 1:00 in the morning and i get up at 6:00 the next day. my daughter yvonne cup -- ivanka said what you do that? i said it is simple. i love this country. this country has been so good to me. i would rather not do it. i wish we had somebody to was so good, i don't care of it as a republican or a democrat. if we had a great president who is a democrat -- we need a great president. we need a great, great president because we are really in trouble. but i wish, and i told my wife, i wish we had a great president. i'm a republican. i'm a conservative. you know they say -- jeb bush. he said, he is not a conservative. why? because i don't want to have free-trade if it is stupid trade. it is stupid trade. free trade is fine. we get outsmarted because we do not use our best and finest. you saw when i won. carl icahn was there. we have the smartest people in the world on our side. we don't use them. we use political hacks. we use people with no ability whatsoever to negotiate massive deals bigger than any business deal you could ever do. the biggest company is small compare to trade deals. we use political hacks to negotiate the biggest deals in the world against china, where they use people that are the smartest and the toughest. high energy. remember when i said low energy? they are very high energy. they come in waves as negotiators. i have made a lot of money negotiating against china. you can be china. you have to be smart, you have to be sharp. the largest bank of the world is a tenet of mine from china in a building in manhattan. the mexican government, the people, they are great. i am not angry at mexico for ripping us off, which they are doing both at the border and on trade. i'm not angry at china. i am not angry at japan. japan sends cars by the million. you know what we give them? practically nothing. ever hear the words trade imbalance? it is like this. it has got to end. i'm not angry at japan. i'm not angry at vietnam and india, all these countries. you ever call upon your credit card? you want to find out about your credit card. you were talking to a person from india. how does that work? where are you from? i was not checking on my card, i was finding out if this was true. i called up under the guise of checking my car. where are you from? we are from india. thank you very much. that is all i need. india is a great place. i am not upset with other leaders. i am upset with our leaders for being so stupid. so stupid. the middle class that built this country, which i am really into the middle class. these people, you are tired and you are disgusted. you are tired and you are disgusted. people are working longer hours. they are working harder and in many cases they are working a second job as they never did before. it is supposed to be the other way. you do a good job and you take it easy. they are now working harder and they make less money than they made 18 years ago. their real wages are less than they were 18 years ago. then people say, donald, there is a lot of anger at your rallies. they are not angry people. they are angry at what is happening. there are actually happy people. they are great people. when i won south carolina, nikki haley, the governor of south carolina, but she backed somebody else, who i'd be very badly. the lieutenant governor back to me and the governor backed somebody else and i said, i want the lieutenant governor, right? but nikki haley made a speech. it was a response to the president's speech. she talked about us, not me. us. she said they are angry. somebody called from the press right after that speech. my lines were going crazy. they said, are you angry? and i was supposed to say no we are not angry. we are angry. we are angry at what is happening. i say this always. we are not angry people. we are reasonable people. we are angry at what is happening, but we are not angry people. we are incredible people. hard-working, incredible people. but we are angry at a system that does not allow us to achieve anything. we give all our money away. we have military deals where we protect every country. we always say we spent many times what any country spends on the military. many, many times. you think we are spending on dover? who is here from dover? good place. i'll bet it could use a little of flipping, right -- uplifting, right? we spend on defending other countries. everyone says, the military, great. we are not spending the money. we are spending so much money defending. germany. you know we defend germany, right? nobody knows that. we defend japan. we defend south korea. we are right next to the mad men. no dummy. anyone that can take over from his father with all those till her generals, no dummy. -- those killer generals, no dummy. i think he is a little off. didn't his uncle find that out? his encore was cut up into 40 pieces because he raised his voice -- his uncle was cut up into 40 pieces because he raised his voice. the problem is it is an economic behemoth. when i want a television set, i ordered thousands of television sets a year for different projects. when i want a television, it comes from south korea. sony comes from japan. from south korea, lg, samsung, all these. we don't make televisions anymore. this guy, george will, he says, why doesn't somebody say that we do have a television company in this country? is a country that you have never heard of, a company that assembles parts. the parts come from south korea. they used to say donald trump won't run. don't worry about it. people not run. and then i read, oh, he ran. he will not file form a. i filed for made. this is getting ridiculous. he will not file his financials. he will take advantage -- you were allowed to push it off forever. you have 30 days but you get 45 day extensions as long as you want. i want to have my financials filed in 30 days. the biggest financials in history of elections. most 100 pages. i tell my accountants from washington and my lawyers, all these people expensive people. i spend a fortune. it is so complicated. taxes are way down. it is lower by far, it is simple. you don't have to use h&r block anymore. great for business, great for the middle class. lower taxes. lower taxes. the highest-taxed nation in the world. i filed my papers. these guys, the media, it was like a feeding frenzy. it was like a feeding frenzy in washington in front of the election. they wanted to say, wait a minute. look how little -- this is terrible. except my company turns out to be much bigger, much stronger. that is why you don't hear anything about it. friend of mine said when i announced i am running, because i am a private person. people don't know what i own. friend of mine says donald, you announce your running now i know you're rich because you have to file. i built a company that is phenomenal. i built some of the greatest assets in the world. i borrowed $1 million not so long ago. i borrowed $1 million and now it is worth over $10 billion. some of the great assets of the world. miami and turnberry and scotland, office buildings all over the place. very little debt, tremendous cash flow. one of the great companies. i don't say that bragging way. i say that because that is the kind of thinking our country needs at least until we get things straightened out. we need it. we need it. boy, we need it. we have people that don't have a clue. a guy like obama never employed one person in his life. he never employed a person. think of it. radical islamic terrorism. he refuses to mention the words. you see what is happening. he sees paris, he does not want to a knowledge it heard he sees what happened with the 14 people killed, many people injured in california. he does not want to a knowledge it. he will never acknowledge it. there is something going on there that is strange. why can't he say radical islamic terrorism? unless you're going to talk about it, you're not going to solve the problem. you're not going to solve it. this started on june 16 when i came down the escalator with my wife and i said, wow. i looked down at trump tower and it looked like the academy awards, there was so much press. i had never seen anything like it. even here, we have a lot. look at those cameras going. they never show the crowd. they never -- you know, you know , with bernie, hillary, they can't talk about because her crowds are so small. with bernie, if he has a big crowd, they with double it. bernie had 25,000. he did not have 25,000. they said it was 28,000. they were not 28,000. with me, they never do it. i was in alabama. we had 35,000 people or more. they go, you don't even see it. they keep the cameras on me. i go home and they say to my wife, did you see the crowd? no. they did not showed it. the only thing i like is the phony protesters. most of them are put there. as soon as somebody raises their hand, usually with a weak voice and start shouting, because the cameras follow them. look at how big the crowd is today on a friday afternoon? with bernie, and bernie is out and i am sort of happy because i really want to run against crooked hillary. don't we want to run against crooked hillary? all the polls say that if it is donald trump against crooked hillary clinton, it will be, seriously, it will be the greatest turnout of voters in the history of the united states. i believe that. i believe it. i mean, think of this. trump against clinton. how about this? lying ted cruz? it does not work. she would beat him so badly, he would lose some many states, there is no chance. look at what happened to him this weekend. look at what happened to him this week. he lost to kasich. cruz came in third. he is so embarrassed that he walked away from the cameras. he came in third in new york. i will win new york against hillary clinton. i think i'm going to win new york. and i will win michigan and i will win pennsylvania. and of course we are going to win delaware. we know that, right? and i will win florida. we had a huge win in florida. we won by more than 20 points. i was not expecting to win florida. just to show you the system is rigged. that is why we have to win big. on tuesday, everyone has to go out and vote. we have to win big because the system is rigged. the fighters have a great expression. you have a champ that goes into a big territory but it is unfriendly. it is the home of the other fighter. no, i'm not worried. if i knock him out, there is nothing the judges can do. what we have to do is knock them out with volume of votes. right now i have millions more votes than cruz, millions more votes than kasich, i have almost 300 or delegates than cruz, even though it is a crooked system. they take him out to dinner, a send them to hotels. it is such a crooked system. it is disgusting. kasich, think of this. kasich is one for 38. you know what his answer is i'm not leaving. i'm not leaving. cruz said kasich could get out. there is no way he could win. there is only one problem. now there is no path to victory for cruz, so he should get out. they should both get out. when they get out, when they get out, we will start on hillary clinton like no one has ever seen before. nobody. we are going to have an unbelievable time. they said to some of the people in clinton's camp, who does she least want to run against? the guy said trump. look what he did. he had 17 senators, governors, very capable people like ben carson, who endorsed me and is an incredible guy and smart and good, and chris christie, the governor of new jersey, a great guy, a great guy, but look what he did to those people one after another. boom, boom, boom. now i am left with hardly two guys. there is no path. one and a half. maybe you can just say one. a half and a half. that is what o'reilly said last night. he goes into this thing, he is competing against senators and governors at the highest level of our nation, and one by one they get knocked off. this person from obama's campaign, why think is now involved with hillary clinton, said the person she least wants to run against his trump because they don't know where he is coming from. this guy. it is true. i tell this all the time, the word unpredictable. we have to be unpredictable. our military is totally predictable. obama gets up. we will leave iraq. he gives a date. can you imagine general douglas macarthur, general george patton, hearing that the president of the united states gave an exact date? how about a few months ago, we said 50 of our finest people over to iraq and syria in the present has a news conference to announce we are sending 50 of our finest. what happens? you know what is happening? isis is looking for those people like you would not believe, right? why does he have to talk? why does he have to say it? first of all, when you say 50 people, these are elite people. it is not enough. 50 people? but in terms of scaring somebody, in terms of scaring -- but why would he announce this? when they announce it, they have a target on their back. they are being looked for. i have friends in the military said that it was so devastating, they did not want to go. these are tough, brave soldiers. why are you announcing? because they want to have some kind of a political benefit. we have to be unpredictable. when he announced an exact date, i said that is smart because he is probably doing a little camouflage, right? it wasn't. the enemy pulls back and then we are gone and boy, did they hit us. isis formed. lots of bad things happen. hillary wanted to go to libya, right? libya has the finest oil. it is of high and it is the finest quality oil. who has the oil right now? isis. we don't even blockade that. they are taking out the oil. we are hitting other oil ports and we are hitting other oil refineries. how long have i been saying take the oil? four years, right? obama's people say that is not a plan. it's a great plan. the problem is isis has gotten very rich with the oil and with the dark banking channels, and i know so much about banking. do i know banking? i am the king. i know almost as much as all the people in delaware about banking. do i know. they are making a lot of money off of crooked banking. they call it the dark banking circles. they are making a lot of money. they are making fortunes of money with the oil. we don't hit them. did you ever hear we sent leaflets down? please leave your truck. we will be bombing your truck shortly. when i first heard that, i laughed because i thought they were kidding. they are not getting. then we don't hit the refineries because they don't want to cause environmental pollution. you have heard that too, right? can you imagine guys like george patton, that was rough and tough? if he ever heard that stuff -- first, he would never be a general today because he is not politically correct. he used to slap his soldiers. if you slap a soldier, they would put him in prison for 15 years. this guy was tough. soldiers loved him. they would die for him. they did die for him. he would be right up there with him. could you imagine if they said we can't really hurt anybody, we can't do anything and we don't want to bomb the oil because we don't want the plume to go up and hurt the atmosphere. honestly, folks? we don't know what we are doing. during one of the debates when they asked line ted about waterboarding, they asked him about waterboarding and he did not want to talk about it. i understand that because it is a tough question. for me, not so tough. they asked him about waterboarding. did you ever see him when he gets something that he is uncomfortable and he starts to stumble like a fool. that is what happened. he did not give an answer. then they took the camera. on the debate, i was center stage for every single debate. i didn't know if i could debate. i had never debated before professionally. i heard cruz was a good debater in college. he had never been interrupted. i interrupted him and he went crazy. all of these things that would happen and happen to us as a nation, it is making us look foolish. it is making us look stupid. it is going to change. if i get elected, it is going to change fast. let me just tell you. we are going to make great trade deals. you are about carrier, ford, nabisco. nabisco left chicago. there -- they are building a plant in mexico. carrier announced they are laying off 1400 people and moving to mexico. it was a vicious announcement. in upper level guy said we are moving to mexico, everyone will be fired. nasty. ford, building a $2.5 billion plant from two years ago. now they are doubling up. when they do it, nobody goes to talk to them. nobody tells them of consequences. they have no consequences. here is trump. president ford, take ford, take carrier, take any of them. i liked to joke because we have fun with it. my wife or daughter, they say, dad, please be more presidential. i can't. right now i have to be these people. don't worry. being presidential for me is much easier than doing this. if i was totally presidential, we have 10,000 people here or something? i would have about 300 and you would be falling asleep after 20 minutes. honestly, i probably would not be here because i was hit really hard by these 17 people. i was hit really, really hard. if i did not hit them back harder, i would not be here. i would be home watching this thing on television. there would be no crowds like this. it would be in some little conference room in a hotel someplace. right? so i hit hard. we are going to be very presidential. we are going to have our country respected again. you will be proud of your president, but more importantly you will be proud of your country. you're going to be really proud of your country. i would do the following. so carrier. this pertains to hundreds of businesses. i want to do it myself. you know, is going to be tough for me because i want to make these calls myself a but the president of the united states should not be calling in air conditioning company, right? it is so easy for me. it is so natural. i love doing it. i don't take vacations. other people go away for weeks and weeks. i learned that from my father. my father was a hard worker and he never took vacations. if you love what you do, you don't take vacations. he took one vacation and he came back early. he was going nuts. he said i was going crazy. i had to get back. that means you love your life. i don't take vacations, unlike obama who takes a plane that flies into hawaii. think of it. he takes a boeing 747 and he flies it two hawaii to play golf and then he talks about global warming. if that person ok? everything good? we love our people, right? we love our people. weeks. he plays more golf than people who play professionally on the pga tour. i like golf, but you know, you have got to get down to business, folks. here is what is going to happen. we going to tell carrier, listen, you let go of 1400 people. nabisco, the same conversation. use a recorder. same conversation. we tell them, you can't do that. you have to see them early, because if you do not see them early, you are going to move and be too late. if you see them early, different. hey, you are going to move, here is the deal. you are going to pay a 35% tax on every air conditioning unit that you send across the now very strong border, right? every time you make a unit, it is going to cost you 35% tax. here is what is going to happen. if it is lying ted cruz or if it is kasich or hillary, they are lobbyists, they are special interests, their donors will call them and say you can't do that to carrier or nabisco. you can't do that. these people gave you millions of dollars. uri. i can't do that. with me, forget. i'm self funding. i'm not taking their money. here is the story. they are going to try to have people call me. i would not even take their calls because i know what is right and wrong. we're losing our jobs. we are losing our pay. we are losing our money. we are getting killed. we are getting killed during here is what is going to happen. within 24 hours, the head of carrier is going to call the president. mr. president, we've decided to stay in the united states. or, if they have already moved and they are building their plant, i would say, enjoy your plant. every single time a unit crosses our now very powerful and strong border, because the wall will be there and agents will be there, you are paying a tax. you know what will happen? one of two things. they are either coming back or we are going to make a lot of money collecting taxes. if you look, our government has been working on this problem for five years. stopping companies from leaving. they said we will give them incentives. we will try to lower their taxes. we're the highest taxed nation in the world by far. they want to give incentives. they don't even bother talking. they just leave. they are not talking to the government. even if they did, there is only one thing you can do. they are looking at all sorts of formulas. i am a free trader, but we have stupid people on our side negotiating. free trade is great, but no good for us because it has not work.... textmr. trump: oh, boy, oh, boy, oh, boy. mr. trump: beautiful, west virginia. oh, this is beautiful. thank you very much, everybody. i wish the primaries were not over. so fun this way. i want the primaries to keep going but everyone is out. i am the only one thatleft that's ok, right? right? before. am i doing a good job? i was not thinking even about you. i was thinking about the miners all over this country. we're going to put the miners back to work. we are going to get those mines open. oh, coal country. what they have done. how about hillary clinton? i was watching her three or four weeks ago. see, i'm going to put the miners back to work and she said i'm going to put the miners and the mines out of business and then she comes over and she tried to explain her statement. that is a tough one to explain. i watcherd her sitting at the table with a very good group of people and one of the mierns, he was not affected -- one of the miners, was not exactly happy with her. who do we have, who is a miner in this group? who is the stand up? they are all standing up anyway. i will to you what, folks. you are amazing people. we'lr point to take i care of a lot of years affordable abusere, ok? and you can caps on it. --- can ocount on it 100%. you knew that because i just had a poll, it is irrelevant now because -- but i was li,kke, i think it was the highest poll i've ever had. and there were three people. so, i could have waited. maybe they would have waited another week i would've been happy. so, i was not going to come today. they all said you do not have to come, because the contest is over. and you're the nominee of the republican party. congratulations. but you're now the nominee and you do not have to come west virginia. do they know i'm coming? yes. how many tickets have you sold? we have 32,000 but the arena holds 15,000. i said, does that mean a place is going to be packed? yes. does that mean people are standing outside right now speakers? you have more outside. imiagineagine -- we love the people outside but your location is better. do we agree, right? so i siaaid, wait a minute, you have 50,000 people in here and you have thousands outside and we are going to notice the people of west virginia i'm not coming because i do not have to come. i don't have to do anything. there is no way i don't go to west virginia. we are going to have fun, ok? right? there's always been something about west virginia. i'll tell you a little secret. i've always been fascinated by the mines. i don't know why. i love construction. i can tell you more about caterpillar tractors than the people that work there. i just know, i love that business. i love construction and i love, i'll tell you, i've just always been fascinated by the mines and the courage of the miners. and the way the miners love what they do. they love what they do, you know? i was talking to some of the people and i said, why don't they move, why don't they go some place else? in this country cannot go any world because you cannot get a job, because our jobs are going to everyone else but us. we're sending our jobs to mexico, china is taking our jobs, japan. they're all taking our jobs. that's all going to change very rapidly, i promise. you want to open the mines. we are going to open a mines. i see over here, trump digs bo coal. that's true, i do. so, i've always been fascinated by it. i have been fascinated by the whole sequence of doing it. it is incredible the engineering now that is involved and the safety and all that has taken place over the last number of years, especially over the last 10 years. and all of it's getting safe and as it gets safe, they're taking it away from you in a different way. and i just think you are amazing people. and you watch what happens if i win, we are going to bring those miersners back, you're going to be so proud of your president here you are going to be so proud of your country. you watch -- and the other night, we had a big night. we won indiana. that was a great night. i had so much help. bobby knight. boy, did he help me. wow, bobby knight. and we had the great coach from purdue. but i'll tell you bobby called me like a year ago and bobby won 900 games, won three championships, won the elliptic's. a-- the olympics. a year ago, before i made up my mind, i get a call from bobby knight, w ho i've never met but i have known bobby knight. he's tough any smart and he knows how to win. by the way, that is what the country needs. he calls me up , and i recognized his voice immediately, because -- goes, mr. trump. this is bobby knight. i hope you run. i said, bobbby, run for what? i hope you run, mr. trump. you run for president you're going to make this country great and. i've been following. you know what he has? -- he is? he's an expert on talent. he said, i hope you run. i said, i have not made up my mind yet, but i'd love your number and let me call you back if i decide to run. he said, you have my support. a lot of time goes by. the races i'm winning and doing really great but you've been hearing me say it is a rate system. -- a rigged system. now i do not say it anymore because i won. now i don't care. the only way i won is i won by such big margins because it is a rigged system. like a boxer, you have to knock them out and then you cannot worry about the judges. i tell that story. you knock them out and you do not have to worry about the judges, right? i won by so much, and what happened with bobby is a friend of mine from indiana, i said, who would be a good endorsement? this was so long ago that bobby called. well, bobby knight would be the greatest endorsement you can get but i doubt you could get bobby knight. i said, i think i can. so, i'm sitting at my desk and i'm looking through all the stuff. i did not put it on iphone. i like the notes. the old-fashioned, put it under a pile of stuff, i'm sitting at my desk and i look and there it is, robbie night. and i call them up and he takes up the phone and we are just about ready to go to indiana and he goes, i've been waiting for you to call. i said, that's right. you going to endorsement? he said, i'll see you next week. and we went into an arena like this and i will tell you the place went crazy. so, about a month and a half before i was 10 points down. and then i went once without bobby. we had tremendous receptivity. just for one day. and i left. and we were two points up. then i went for the final four, fie ve days. and all i did was watch bad ads. watch these horrible, phony ads, done by people who in my opinion are not honest people. some of there weren't so wrong. for the most part. but bad ads. one of them was club for growth. they asked me for $1 million. i said i'm not interested. and then they advertised against me. welcome to the world politics. one ad after another. i said to my people, there is no we can win. they had spent $9 million. they had thousands of these ads. i said, there is no way. i just watch a program and it information that had four ads, all negative ads. my gusys said, no, you are going to win. we won indiana in a landslide. it was amazing. amazing. it was amazing. and bobby and all of the guys, they were incredible. that endorsement was an amazing endorsement because he is revered in indiana. and outside of indiana, they know who bobby knight is because he is generally speaking, be your basketball teams. that was great. a couple weeks before that i won new york in a landslide. and new york is good. and the nice part about new york is they know me well. the same thing with the ads, negative ads. you know that thing, never trump. do you know why it's never trump? because i am going to stop the gravy train for all these consultants and all these people ripping off our country, the gravy train. so, never trump. by the way, a lot of these are calling up, mr. trump, i admire you greatly. we would love the join a campaign. didnn't yo't you do a horrible ad? how do you pivot from that is saying you think i am a wonderful person. he said, no problem, sir. politicians. they can do that. so, now it's really caught on and everyone is happening. then we had, as you know, two weeks ago we had five -- we had maryland, which was unbelievable. all victories, by landslides. we had maryland, pennsylvania where the miners there are just absolutely, they are dying to work. they're dying for work. they're great people. they're great people. i do not know if they are as good as the west virginia miners. what do you think? i don't nkow whknow who's better. i don't know. they're dmanamn good, but they are great people and dying for work i was in pittsburgh and i was around pennsylvania. so we won pennsylvania. we won connecticut. in connecticut in won everything from greenwich of the poorest areas. he won greenwich, very wealthy people. and he won the poorest areas. i won with men, i won with women. very important. these people, you know, the media is the most dishonest group of people. but boy, they're killing me with the women. i think i am doing great. every state i've won with women, big -- i've won with men and women, rich and poor, highly educated, less than highly educated. white, african-american, we have won with every category. so i won the five states. then i won indiana. so we won all of the stuff, and then it was all of a sudden like they just had enough. the could not stand trump winning. and they could not stand the fact that a person that has never done this politically before, and a person that is self funding his campaign -- i don't take the contributions -- to help raise money for the party and they'll work with us but we are going to need -- the democrats are going to raise $2 billion. this is politics. i'm also going to put in a lot of money in the general. but we're helping to raise money. we have a great group and we are raising money for the party. we're going to get a lot of other people elected with us, i will tell you. so, so, it's been amazing, folks. it has been amazing. and that's when, this was going to be next. i really wanted to com ehere. i just did not have a hard to say, thanks a lot, west virginia. i have, by the way, i have a team of people that were so great and they were so disappointed that i won early. they wanted to win like now, so they get a little of the credit. i said, we just picked up all the delegates, we do not have to do anything. i'm glad to be here because i love you people. real. the real people. you're the real, real people. you made this country great, remember that. you made this country great. they did not have ridiculous regulations that put you out of business, they did not have these ridiculous rules and regulations that make it impossible for you to compete. so, we are going to take all of that off the table and you had better do well and you had better compete and make me proud of you, ok? you will be proud of me. make me proud of you. so, i got a fantastic endorsement a little while ago. and you know youre coal association, west virginia coal association just endorsed me. it was between me and hillary. and we really affectionately call her cricket hil -- crooked hillary. it was between me and crooked hillary. you know how long i said they were in the room? about 20 seconds. that is how long it took. i would like to ask a couple of the guys to come up because they are fantastic people. if i can had chris come up, and bill. chris is going to represent bill. bill -- getting up on the stage is not so easy for him right now. chris, come on up if you would, please. i love this. i come here, ig get an award. it is probably a hat. i like hardhat. let's see if it is a hard hat. it is a hardhat. it is a hardhat. hairspray anymore because it affects the zozone. you me to tell me, because you know hairspray is not like it used to be. it used to be real good. what i put on it helmet. it really is mine, right? look at this, right? my hair. give me a mirror. in the old days he put the hairspray on, it was good. today you put the hairspray on, it is good for 12 minutes, right? you know they say you cannot -- wait a minute, so i take hairspray and if i spray it in my apartment which is all sealed, you're telling me that affects the ozone player? -- ozone layer? no way, folks. no way. that is like a lot of the rules and regulations you people have in the mines. so, i want to thank you folks. believe me it is an honor. i get elected you are going to see what happens. it is going to happen fast, and you are going to be back to better than ever before. and honestly that beat -- means all kinds of energy. we never want to be an a position like we were in before where we were literally controlled by people, opec and others, but we were literally, in the hands of these people. not going to happen again, folks. not going to happen again. so, congratulations. now i want -- what i want you to do is save your vote. you do not have to vote anymore. save your vote for the general election could forget this one. the primary is gone. save your vote for the general election in november and we are going to show you something and then you will show me something, ok? look at that. ok, thank you. so, we'll talk a little bit about trade and jobs. we will talk a little bit about the borders. are you big border people? the wall. everybody wants the wall. we will have to wall. we will have the wall. that's very nice. we will build that wall.... text wall. mr. trump: we will build a wall. who's going to pay for the wall? mexico! mr. trump: not even a doubt, ok? although i must tell you, vincente fox was on television last night and he apologized and accept his apology. i thought it was very nice. did you see it? honestly? i thought it was very, very nice, because i was giving them a little hard time about something. and he apologized. he was the former president of mexico and i thought it was very nice he apologize, ok? that's good. because we are going to have great relationships with mexico but we need a border. the border, just like i got from west virginia coal association, the endorsement, last week i got the endorsement from 165000 bor --der patrol agents. first time in the history they have ever endorsed a presidential candidate. so, that was an honor. it is very important. the country is in trouble. not only the minres, not only -- the miners not only coal -- although because of nonsense regulations, i think your industry has probably been hit harder than maybe anybody. but many industries have. the over regulation of our businesses is destroying families, it is destroying jobs, destroying businesses. and is really hurting our country and in a sense it is destroying our country. and we are going to change that. we are going to change it fast. when i came down the escalator with my wife on june 16. and i said, come on, we have to do it. if you want to see the press, see those prospect there? you have never seen -- see those press back there? you have never seen anything like it. it looks like the academy awards. there were over and trump tower. is that something i really wanted to do? doing this takes guts, like you have. but it is a different kind of got. -- kind of guts. i do not think i have your guts, to be honest. but doing that, a lot of courage. i did not want to. i had this great company, this great business, a great family. this is hard work. you go away for a week and you make three, four, five speeches a day sometimes in front of crowds like this. the press will never report how many people are here. it is 28,000 people including outside folks. but they won't -- either because of the race being over but you wanted to be here and i wanted to be here. but i came down and i talked about basically two things. trade and illegal immigration. and you know what? it was a pot of gold. i don't say that is something i'm proud of from the standpoint of winning. i hit a nerve because the country knew how out of control illegal immigration was. they knew how totally out of control. and they knew, and mostly for me because i have been talking about it for years on different shows and television, they knew from me very strongly from me, they knew how bad our trade deals are. we have the worst trade deals may be ever negotiated and history of mankind. other than that, they're wonderful deals, right? these are the worst deals. let me tell you something, the clinton administration of which hillary was definitely a part, she was a part of almost everything. almost, not everything. almost. you should be ashamed of yourselves. terrible, terrible people. but the clinton administration approved the thing called nafta. which has single-handedly taken vast amounts of our businesses and in in particular of manufacturing business and brought them into mexico. i want to tell you, i live in new york and i know new york state well then it is a great place with great people but i toward upper new york state and i went to syracuse and i went to rome, new york. i went to albany and we were getting crowds like you would not believe. and i went out to the island, suffolk county and different places, and i would see building after building and some of these buildings were really big. empty, epmtympty. businesses left years ago. the same thing you are having, not as bad, but the businesses left years ago and they moved to mexico and they moved to other places. frankly, china took businesses and everything else. i get these statistical charts. i have the statisticians that love stats. i would rather be a coal miner than a statistician. but they're good. and after about 10 different speeches in different states, because i go to pennsylvania and maryland, new york -- i realized they are all the same. i did not even really need my statisticians, because they were saying manufacturing dayonw 15% from 10 or 15 years ago p all the same, population down. median income way down. you know, many people in this room have not had a pay increase in 18 years. and you are working harder. you're working in some cases to jobs. and you are making less money. -- you are working in some cases two jobs. it is not going to be that way anymore. 18 years, you're working harder, two job, making less money. nafta, again, i think it was probably the worst piece of economic development. for the economic development of mexico, not of this country. these are people that make these deals, taken care of by their contribute and donors or they are stupid. for they have no common sense. they are incompetent. but i think they are not in competent. i think they are smart. a friend of mine saw a deal that was made, smart guy, very successful. he said how stupid could the politicians be? i said, they are not stupid. they are smart. they took care of the donors by allowing this deal to happen. i said, do you think anyone would allow a thing like that to happen? they took care of their donors. you look at the clintons with their foundation. it is a discussion -- a disgusting situation. i gave money to the foundation. i figured maybe they would use it properly. i did not know they would use it to fly around in private jets. a lot of people give money to the foundation. what was given for the money? the whole thing is a scam. our whole system -- let me tell you, our system is broken. it is badly broken. if we do not fix it, we are not going to have a country left, folks. i will tell you. we are not going to have a country. he knows what being ripped off is. he knows we are being ripped off. i know we -- i knew we were being ripped off long before he did and i know how to fix it, ok? we will fix it. we will fix it. talking about it for months and i think that helped me. i saw that 1400 people were laid off i carrier air-conditioning. you know the story. they announced, we are firing these people. great people. every place i went, they had carrier people. i fell in love with them and they fell in love with me. i said, where are my carrier people? they said, essentially, you're fired, like "the apprentice." the guy was not nice about it. he looked like an upper middle management guy. they had a cell phone going, one of the people that got fired. it was all over the news. without the cell phone, i would not know about it. no one would know about it. it would just be another statistic, like what is happening to you and all over. so carrier is going to move to mexico and make their air-conditioning units, of which i buy a lot. i am a carrier person and i buy a lot of different things. they are going to sell them back to the country, no tax and no nothing. all we get is unemployment. all we get is the destruction of families and people's lives. we get nothing. believe me. i am a really start -- smart guy. i went to the wharton school of finance. you do not have to go to wharton . you do not have to go to high school. we get nothing and everybody in this room knows it. so i watched these conservative people and they do not like what i am saying because they want free-trade. but free-trade only works if we have smart people on our side and honest people on our side and we don't have that. we are getting beat by every single country. every single country in the world that does business with us beats us on trade. we are losing over $500 billion a year, trade deficit with china. we are losing $58 billion a year with mexico. not going to happen anymore, ok? we are going to balance things out. we are going to make it fair. we have rebuilt china. when i talk about the wall, these guys are on the stage and i like them all. they are fabulous people. after you win, you like everybody. somebody said, do you like this one? you spoke so harshly. i said, i love them. they are my best friends. but they would, to me and say, donald, you know you are not going to build a wall. you cannot build a wall. i save why not? i am a really good builder. which is good. you get a president that can rebuild our infrastructure without having it cost 10 times what it is supposed to cost. you ever see these jobs where they were going to cost $100 million and then they are costing $1.2 billion? do you think somebody made a couple of dollars on these jobs? and then you see the contractors, who are smart people, and they are moving into mansions and they moved to palm beach, florida. it is a good life. only in america, folks. we are going to stop it. we have to rebuild our infrastructure. but we are not going to let that happen. i have been watching for six years now. for six years, i have been watching our government talking about how they are not going to let businesses move. they are going to give them incentives and give them low-interest loans. they do not want to make money. they are rich. a couple of cases, made them low-interest loans and then they moved. they took the low-interest money and then they moved anyway. for six years, i have been watching. you do not want to do that. does not work. i will tell you what works. you explain to the head of carrier or foreign -- or ford or nabisco -- you know, ford is building a $2.5 billion plant to -- in mexico. do you know what that does to michigan and the automobile industry? now it is working out for them. nobody talked to them from our country and said, you cannot do it. or have to be consequences. thousands of jobs. it was announced two weeks ago that they are going to build it much bigger. they are going to build it much bigger. are we stupid people? here is how you solve the problem. you solve the problem by informing any of these companies -- we will use carrier as an example. every air-conditioning unit that you make that comes across the border to be sold in the united states -- and now the border is a strong border, not a week border -- weak border -- every air-conditioning unit that you make that comes across the border, you are going to pay a 35% tax on it. that is all. numbers rapidly. if they have left or decide to leave anyway, which is possible, you know what is going to happen? we are going to make a lot of money for the country. and every business. why should ford leave this country, go to mexico, build cars, trucks, and parts in one of the biggest plants in the world, sell the cars, trucks, and parts to the united states, pay no tax, and leave all these places empty in michigan and other places? not going to happen anymore. we are not the stupid people. it driven by illegal immigrants. drive right over the border. why not? nobody stops them. just take that car and drive it right over the border. what is happening with that is a disaster, illegal immigration. but why should ford make these products, sell them to us, having let go of thousands and thousands of great workers, and why should they be able to sell it without tax? i am a conservative, but the conservatives hate me for suggesting that you would dare tax somebody.... text you! mr. trump: i love you, too. talking about presidential. it is not presidential. when the president called the head of an air-conditioning company -- but it is so much fun for me. i love this stuff. i do not take occasions. i am not like obama, where he takes air force one to hawaii, stays there for two or three weeks, plays golf, comes back. air force one, a boeing 747, and that he has a news conference and talks about the carbon footprint. give me a break. give me a break. mr. president, i will call you back. he will then hire lobbyists, but they cannot get to me. he will hire special interests, but they cannot get to me. if it is hillary, they will hire the one that is the lobbyist for hillary, they will take care of everything. so what happens is they will call back the following day. i said, listen, do not talk to me. just give me a yes or a no. the next day, they will call me and say, mr. president, we are not leaving the united states. we cannot let them leave. we are losing all of our jobs. i am not talking about mining jobs. i am talking about every kind of job there is. you have a different predicament. the one place we are selling coal is china. china can use the coal, but we can't. explain that one. here is what we are going to do. we are going to be the smart people again. we are going to be the really smart people again. we have rebuilt china. we have a country with roads, hospitals, transportation, airports, third world. you go to places in the middle east, china, japan, uc see trains that go 250 miles per hour. our trains go chug, chug, chug on tracks that are 100 years old. we are like a third world country. we are going to change it, folks. we are going to change it. we are going to change it. now just to end up, first of all, i usually say you are going to these here and go home and say the country started winning, but you are going to go out and vote. i do not have to say that anymore. but in november, you are going to be vote. that is going to be the greatest vote you ever cast. the vote was supposed to be on tuesday, now i can say stay home , but get twice as many people in november, right? because we have to win. we have to win the general election. we cannot take hillary clinton anymore. we have had enough of clinton. again, nafta was given to us by clinton. that was a clinton deal signed by clinton and it has been the most destructive thing. we cannot take anymore of the clinton stuff, which is another four years of barack obama. you cannot take it, folks. you want to have your minds blown 100%. when she says recently, two weeks ago, and i watched her and said, did she make a mistake? when she said she was going to close the mines, do you think she was kidding? and then she comes here two days ago and she is begging for your vote. i didn't really mean that. i did not really mean that. but that is her true feelings. she did not have a teleprompter when she said that. that is why she uses a teleprompter. she uses a teleprompter because she cannot make that kind of mistake. i do not have teleprompters, folks. isn't that better? that is better, folks. it is better. the subject matter stinks. our country is in trouble. the subject matter is bad, but the subject matter will be good because we are going to make america great again. it is going to be good, not bad. good. speaker. they probably think it is a recording. but here is the story -- look, we are going to start winning again. we do not win anymore. i love you too, darling. these people are wild. west virginia. . and we are going to win with our military. you know, our military has been so far behind. remember this -- west virginia has a massive number, disproportionate to almost every other state, of veterans. and we are going to take care of our veterans. we are going to take care of our veterans. are going to take care of our vets because they have not been taken care of. in many cases, illegal immigrants are taking better care of and our vets -- taken better care of than our vets. and that is not going to happen anymore. we're going to start winning the battle with our military. we are going to knock the hell out of isis, by the way. we are getting rid of common core and brooding -- and bringing education local. we are going to have the wall. mexico will pay for the wall. it will happen. believe me. and we are going to let people come into our country. we are going to let a lot of people come into our country, but they are coming into our country legally. legally. people and the greatest business minds in the world. we are going to use our great business people to make our trade deals. they don't want money. they want to play. they want to do it. they love the country in their own way. some are nice and some are not so nice. but i have the backing of some of the greatest business people in the world. they want to do it. they want to see america be great again and we are going to do it. we are going to take these horrible trade deals that are made by people who have absolutely no right to be dealing with the top people in china, the top people of japan -- these are political hacks and we are taking it away. we are going to make, instead of these horrible deals, we are going to make unbelievable trade deals that bring jobs and money and economics back to our country. back to our country. i will be back. i will be back once or twice, even. this is a very important state to win. but you, your family, your friends, you are all going to get out to vote. you will look back and you will say it was the single greatest vote you ever cast. america will be great again. we will be america first. we will start winning and you will be very proud. and for those miners, get ready, because you are going to be working your asses off. thank you, everybody. thank you. ... textstates, mr. donald j. trump. i've been in competitions all of my life. there is nothing so exciting as this stuff. nothing. it is really exciting stuff and very important. i want to thank the people of louisiana, the people of kentucky. it has been just an amazing relationship. amazing relationship. rand paul, your senator in kentucky, fought very hard, fighting us every inch of the way, and we won, and we won by quite a few votes. thank you to louisiana, and thank you to kentucky. i want to thank the folks from maine and from kansas. we came in second, and we did spend very much time. two hours in one place, two and a half hours in the other, and we came in a strong second. i want to thank those folks. i want to congratulate ted on maine and kansas.he should do well in maine because it's close to canada. let's face it. very bad night, and personally, i would call for him to drop out of the race. i think it's time now that he drop out of the race. i really think so. he comes in third. every time he comes in third or fourth -- you've got to be able to win. i would love to take on ted one on one.that would be so much fun. ted can't win new york, new jersey, pennsylvania, california. i want ted one-on-one, ok? i think one of the reasons we did so well tonight and so strong is the really had a good debate. i think we did very well. i was hit from every side, every angle very viciously, but i think we did well in the debate. we are marching along, and i think we are doing well in florida. today, i was in orlando. we had a group of at least 20,000 people. we had to send 10,000 people away, and the place was packed. it was an amazing day. i love the people of florida. it's my second home. i just want to thank florida for being just incredible, and i'm looking at the poll numbers. $49 spent on negative commercials, and despite that, we have a lead in florida. i think we are going to do well in ohio. i think we are going to do fantastically in ohio. i love the people of that state. the biggest story in all of politics is it what is happening tonight and on super tuesday, but the biggest story is the tremendous outpouring of voters coming into the republican party. you are seeing what is happening. movement, and i'm honored to say that if i were not involved, that were not be happening. i will say i'm kidding the cousin i want them to say i'm a nice person. -- because i want them to say i'm a nice person. you're talking about millions of people. as a party, we should come together and stop this foolishness. i was thinking about it today for the first time. the establishment is unhappy with the way things are going, and i can understand that, although i used to be part of the establishment. seven months ago before i decided to run, i was part of the establishment. they said, what is he doing? we want people we can control. we want people we can give money to so that if we want somebody for pharmaceutical or utilities or lumber or oil and gas, we have total control over our senator or congressman. i am self-funding. i'm not taking their money. i'm going to do what is right for the american people, and that's very simple, so they are not happy. i was thinking today, because i love the republican party, and i love the conservatives, and i love a lot of people who are good friends of mine, and i've been a member for a long time. for the first time, i was really thinking about this. we lost a great man, justice scalia. he needs to be replaced, and you can only replace him with someone truly great. he can never be replaced. a very good friend of my sister who is a federal judge on the court of appeals. highly respected. that was totally unexpected. picture shows what happens. we have a situation where they are saying, maybe we are not going to be able to beat trump the normal way, so we will run a third-party candidate, and maybe we can't win all the states, but we will do enough so donald trump can't win. what are they doing? they are going to appoint a conservative, great judge, something that will make the people of the republican party very happy, someone who will make the people very happy. if they run a third-party or an independent, if they do that, it will make it impossible for the republican candidate, on the assumption it's me or anybody, to win. if that means losing, that means hillary clinton who should not be allowed to run because of what she did with the e-mails -- should not be allowed to run -- a republican to win. obviously, the independent or third party could not win, so the democrats would have an absolutely free run. probably, you wouldn't even campaign because it would be impossible to win. what does that mean? -- that means that automatically they are going to appoint very, very, very liberal judges. the new president, who would be a democrat, will point the judge -- a point the judge, -- will appoint the judge, so it no longer matters. we could see the appointment of 3, 4, or five supreme court justices. you've got to start thinking about that, folks. anybody who does a third party, that's what it's going to mean. it guarantees -- 100% guarantees the election of the democrat. that means the appointment of supreme court judges, 3, 4, or five. that's a total wipeout for conservatives and for republicans. start thinking about that. start thinking about it. this was just an exciting time. i'm having a lot of fun. i have to tell you that ted i was watching him. congratulations on the two states, ted. he was saying the donald trump has a ceiling of 35% to 40%. cnn came out with old -- a poll two days ago that says i have 49% compared to his. 49% -- some of the polls are showing over 50%. i don't even think they are accurate. i have w o-- won many polls against hillary clinton directly , and i'm the only one that's going to beat her, if she is allowed to run. and the only 1 -- remember that. and i am the one person, the one person, trust me, that she does not want to run against. now, we've only had one little skirmish here that was four weeks ago. that was not pleasant for her and bill. but i'm the one person -- was doing great. you know why? she went down. and you know why? because of my skirmish. and i get no credit for that. please give me credit. anything with hillary. we haven't started with hillary except for the one moment for weeks ago -- four weeks ago. i heard hillary today and i watched her statement tonight and her statement is "make america whole." that's a terrible statement. are trying to dig our way out. make america whole? no, make america great again. that's what mine is. make america great again. again, i just have to think the people of louisiana and of kentucky -- to thank the people of louisiana and of kentucky. last night, we had a group of people in an airplane hangar. this was a seriously big hang ar for very, very big planes. there were thousands and thousands of people. it was incredible. same thing a few days ago in kentucky. we had a rally that was incredible. today's rally in orlando, florida -- nobody has seen anything like it. they are saying they have never seen anything like it in the history of politics in this country. it was so reported -- even in "the new york times" today, people have never seen anything like it. it's a movement. i want to thank all of my friends and members, all of my everything. you have been so supportive, so great. you are very, very special people. thank you. with that, if you would like, you know the president is among the most dishonest people ever created by god. i would like to take -- the press are among the most honest people ever created by god. i would love to take a few questions. john.... text mr. trump: if i can do it, i would do it. thank you. if i can do it, i will do it. yes, sir. go ahead. mr. trump: i love you as a reporter. where have you been? this is the greatest guy. i call him lying ted. he holds up the bible, then he puts it down and lies. i never saw a man who lies as much. what he did to ben carson is a disgrace. and actually, to me. had he not gotten those iowa votes, i would have won iowa. i would have won everything. when he did voter violation on a form that looks like it came right out of a government agency, voter violation, and the only way you get rid of the violation is by going and voting for ted cruz. do you ever see this? people did that because they were afraid. it was terrible. it was a very fraudulent thing. he has done a lot of bad things. ben carson is a great guy. i thought that was a disgrace. he said basically the ben carson is out of the race. come on, vote for me. one of those things. i do think this. i do think that ted is at least moving along ok, but marco -- how does he -- has to get out of the race. has to. despite what ted said -- ugh, do i want to run against just ted. that will be easy. go ahead. >> very, very strong. we have policy on it. i've said it very strongly. i think you know it. how many times do i have to say it? it is like -- as an example, what is my position on 900 different things? i said it 150 times. we are not here for discussing that. but everybody knows how i feel on it. question? question? david, sit down, please. you know my position. john, go ahead.... text mr. trump: it's what it should be. because we are the only two that are winning. he keeps saying "i am the one who beats donald trump." well, i have been beating him almost 3-1. on super tuesday, i got one million more votes than marco and i've hundred thousand more votes -- and 500,000 more votes than ted. that's a lot of votes.... text mr. trump: he is not going to win. you know what? the can't win -- he can't win. i'd love to have a head-to-head matchup with him in florida and in ohio. but in new york, he's not going to get very many votes. ohio, pennsylvania, new jersey, he is just not going to get very many votes. i would like marco to drop out. look at how he did tonight. he is in third and fourth. even when i don't win a state, i come in second. that's a big thing. marco is coming in fourth. i think it is time for marco to clean the deck, i do, and i say that respectfully.... text mr. trump: matt is a great guy. look, i wanted to go to kansas. i felt i had an obligation. i did fairly well in kansas, considering i spent literally an hour there, very small time. but i wanted to go to kansas to campaign. i have -- i respect the people at cpac. i respect matt great deal -- matt a great deal. i hated to cancel. i'm campaigning to be president. had i not going to kansas this morning, i would not have done as well as i did. i came in second. it was a very important thing.... text >> >> no, i don't care. i was hearing matt say today, i did not like the format. i would rather speak for 30 minutes, but i hate when we are interviewed or use speak for 10 minutes, 15 minutes, then you're interrupted, you sit down. i have done that. i have done that three times now. i would rather speak. if someone asked me in the case of sean hannity, i would love to do that. i would love to do that. this was simply a fact that i wanted to campaign. very few people are campaigning. i'm very happy i did it. i met a lot of great people in kansas. mr. phil ruffin, one of the most united -- most successful people in the united states. i felt like i owed it to him to go there.... text mr. trump: yes? >> billion and they are a terrorist state. the fact that they spent much of that money buying other than american products. they brought 118 massive airplanes -- box 118 massive airplanes from -- they bought 118 massive airplanes from airbus. not from boeing. i will get down to the bottom of that. i think it is a disgrace. please give his family my regards. i think they know where he is. one way or another, i think they absolutely know where he is. if i am elected president, i will get to the bottom of it. to do with it. when you have 25,000 people in the building. today, we had to send away so many thousands of people. when you have that many people, if you have four or five people stand up out of 22,000 that are in this holding -- building, that i'm speaking to. a very great entertainer said, donald, you are the biggest entertainer in the world without a guitar. which is sort of interesting. i won't tell you that was the great elton john. i won't tell you that. somebody did make that statement. when you have that many people in the world -- the room, you will have a couple of people -- skirmishes. we treat them very gently. 10 years ago, they would have been treated differently, not by me. that's the way life is. we treat them very gently. we had a few protesters today, but very few. if you look at it as a percentage, we had 1/100 of the people in the room.... text mr. trump: look, i watched bernie sanders have a protest. he was up at the microphone and two young ladies came up and took the microphone away from him. that will never happen to me. he walked meekly to the back of the room. i said, isn't that pathetic, isn't that sad? >> me. somebody else. marco brought it up. you look at what happens to marco. let me tell you, i didn't bring it up. excuse me, somebody else said, donald trump has small hands. i said, small hands these guys -- small hands? these guys know i hit the ball 280. is trump strong? i simply held up the hand. these are very strong hands, and they are fairly large, actually. but you know what, it was interesting. you should not even be bringing this up, to be honest with you. but it was very interesting. because the day after he said that, i am shaking hands with people, and everybody is saying, wow, you have strong hands, you have very good hands. marco made it up out of nowhere, because he is a politician. politicians lie and they say bad things. and if you don't call them out for it -- i didn't bring it up. he brought it up. and i finished it. i will tell you something about marco. marco attacked me viciously a week ago, two weeks ago. so far, every person that has attacked me has gone down. look at his numbers tonight. he cannot hold one of those phony rallies where he did well. he did really badly. he is not going to stand up tonight and talk about how well he did in iowa, where he was in third place and he acted like he won. i agree with ted on that. >> candidate in history other than honest abe lincoln. he was very tough to beat. you look at abe lincoln, he was serious, right? but when i get attacked by these people at a low level, i have to attack back. i can't stand there. some people say you are above it. i will never do that for our... text country, either. good with donald trump. any hate group. but if you are telling me, i will believe it. i totally denounce, ok?... text mr. trump: bullying? yeah? mr. trump: i will help the party fundraiser, yes. i am not looking for funds for myself. i am totally self funding my campaign, but i will absolutely help the camp -- the party fundraiser. i don't want any money for myself. go ahead.... text mr. trump: no, i'm not. i think we will win before the convention. i think we will win before. i have sponsored a lot of sporting events. the fighters have a great expression. when they go into a city or town where it is an unfriendly town but they think they are going to win, the only way we are going to do -- to guarantee victory is to not them out. the only way i can guarantee victory is to get enough delegates. if we think about it like price fighters do, that's called a knockout. we think we are going to do very well in florida. we have the two once. -- ones. louisiana and kentucky tonight for the big ones. we did well in maine, but it was much smaller than louisiana, kentucky. kansas was also smaller. we came in second. but we won louisiana and kentucky. they were the big ones. go ahead.... text mr. trump: ok. so, the question was asked about waterboarding. waterboarding is a very touchy subject. it was originally asked two decades ago to ted cruz. he sort of didn't want any part of that question. i watched and i said wow. they look at me and said, how do you feel. i said, i'm totally in favor of waterboarding. and if we can, i'd like to do much more than that. just so you understand, we are playing by a different set of rules than isis and others in the middle east. we have laws and rules and regulations and all of these things, and they have nothing. they jump off people -- chop off people's heads. they drown people in massive steel cages. they dropped the case for one hour, they lift it up and there are 30 dead people. here we are worried about waterboarding. here is the story. i will obey the laws, but i will try and get the laws extended. i will try and get the laws broadened. because we should be allowed -- because it's very hard to be successful in beating someone when you're rules are very soft and their rules are unlimited. they can do whatever they want to do. and i want to play -- so violently and so fast. they chop off heads. they do things that we haven't seen since medieval times, and we are worried about waterboarding. sit down. let me just tell you. excuse me. i want to stay within the laws. right now, we have the laws. i want to make those laws stronger so that we can better compete with a vicious group of animals, ok? ok. yes, go ahead. >> we have a 20 point lead i think in florida. mr. trump: look, mitt romney was a failed candidate. he was a terrible candidate. he choked. he absolutely choked as bad as i had never seen, other than marco when chris christie was grilling him. that was a big joke also -- choke also. i thought he was going to collapse. i was getting ready to hold him up with these very powerful hands, ok? he knows how i feel. when he was thinking of getting into the race seven months ago, eight months ago, i said -- so important. i said you cannot let mitt romney in this race. he is a choker. you know, through sports -- i can tell you, i have some great sportsmanen right here. once a choker, always a choker. mitt romney gave that election away. that was an election against a failed president that should have been easily won. mitt romney did not work hard. that last month, he disappeared. say what you want about president obama. he was on "jay leno," "david letterman." he was all over the place. and where was mitt romney? we are all still looking for him. if he would have devoted the same time and energy to winning the presidency four years ago as he is now to destroying our party and the unity of our party, he would have won the election and we wouldn't have the problems we do now. ladies and gentlemen, i want to thank you all. this has been amazing, very exciting. i look forward to seeing you many times in the near future. thank you very much. thank you. thank you very much. caption content and accuracy. visit ncicap.org]... textmr. trump: great to see you. we are getting so many questions on the building itself, how it's coming and this is a great speaker system, boy. unbelievable. and just want to thank everybody for coming. we have had so many inquiries as to how we are doing at the old post office, what was formerly the old post office. the rooms are almost complete. close to 300 rooms, super luxury and going to be amazing and going to employ substantially more than i would say 500 people, at least 500 people and getting them largely from the area and they are already in training. our chefs have been employed, our service staff has been fully employed. so we have a tremendous group of people. the hotel is going to be incredible. much of what you are sitting on, that was open space going into a basement area, that is a brand new floor and gets covered with beautiful marble from different parts of the world. much of what you are seeing here gets the final touches on it. this was one of the great buildings in washington, in the country and restored to the highest level, well beyond from when it was built and it's going to be something really special. when it's completed, it will be truly one of the great hotels of the world and that's what we are looking forward to. this was g.s.a. and one of the most heavily bid projects ever in the history of g.s.a. tremendous numbers of people wanted it. they bought it down to 10 finalists and we got it because of the strength of our financial statement and they wanted something built and something special in terms of the concept. where you are now is part of the hotel lobby and will see that in three months. and behind me are restaurants, stores and shops and everything above the second floor is rooms, suites, luxury suites a we are building one of the biggest ballrooms in washington. the largest luxury ballroom in washington and in the washington area. it will be a very, very special job. we are proud of it. we are two years ahead of schedule. we will be opening in september. so that's much in advance of what it was supposed to be. it was supposed to be september two years from now. we are right on budget and increased the scope of the work quite a bit. we are still on budget and have gone to a higher agree of finishes and marbles and fixtures, bathroom fixtures, windows, et cetera. we want to make this one of the great hotels of the world. i think it's coming out that way and when it's completed, you will be proud of it. it's a great thing for the country and washington. it was sitting shallow for many, many decades but it was for many years, it was a magnificent building and there was fights as to whether it would stay up and groups got together and never allowed the government to take it down. we started it about a year and-a-half ago and will have it finished way ahead of schedule. i think you will be proud of it as people who love this country, i think you will be proud of it. this is some of the staff we have, some of the construction workers and probably close to 1,000 construction workers on the the on site. the windows which are landmark, much of the building is landmark. the walls are landmark, the struts -- it's all a very strong landmark situation. we worked with the various landmarking groups that were terrific, really professional people and love this building. the exeter i don't remember of the building -- exterior of the building is gran it and don't build them like that any more. if you have any questions, please raise your hand. pretty know who was there, i would imagine. we had a great meeting. group and we are doing very well and looks like we are doing very well in arizona and every place else and easily make that number of the 1,237 and should make it easily based on what i'm seeing so we won't worry about fighting at a convention. trade agreements that are killing our country. people have no idea how important that is. the money that is being drained out of our question is enormous and that's not her thing. that's totally my thing. she will be weak on the military and weak frankly with other countries and the amount of money we subsidize them with our military, which nobody talks about. we have to make our country solvent and make our country rich if we are going to save these things and rebuild our military. it's in very bad shape. it has been december immated and get the right equipment and not the wrong equipment. we want to get the equipment they want, not the equipment they are getting because politicians have access to certain companies and we are going to rebuild our military. and that will be a big difference also. look at libya and look at anything you want to look at and they haven't worked and if you look back at my projections and my figures, they turn out to be very, very accurate. look into it and speak to governmental people in israel and here. and i want to speak to various senators, including senator sessions, jeff is highly respected and ted cruz respected him more than any senator and thought he was going to get endorsed by jeff sessions and he didn't. jeff sessions endorsed me and ted cruz doesn't believe what happened. they worked together. and doesn't say much about somebody when you have almost no senate endorsements but you have no senate endorsements and you work with the people all the time. we worked very, very closely with many people but jeff sessions. we worked closely with top people from israel and i'm going to be making a speech about it in a little while. and i will do it today at 5:00. >> mr. trump: here? we are doing some of that already. what are you looking for, what kind of a position? come up here. smart, good. do you mind if i do a job interview right now? we need good people. what's your experience?... text mr. trump: here's what i'm going to do. here's the man. stand right over here. she is probably going to have a job. have a good time. mr. trump: just to start getting together with some of the people i have known over the years, politicians and just about all cases, they were senators or congressmen. jim demint. we had a good meeting and can't believe how far we've come. i think a lot of people maybe wouldn't have predicted that. people who know me did predict that. it is a beginning meeting but it was a very good one with a lot of the most respected people in washington.... text mr. trump: very simple, i have more votes than anybody and if you take away the fact we had 17 people, i had 17 people going against. hillary essentially had one. i had more votes than anybody, more votes have come in the primaries to me than anybody else. and you know the problem with the country right now, it's so divided and people like elizabeth warren have to get their act together because it's going to stay divided and it includes hillary and includes me. this country has to get together. we are sitting on a fat financial bubble and it is 19 trillion and we have a military that needs money. we have everything that needs money and we have health care that doesn't work. obamacare is not working. nothing wrongs. -- nothing works. we are ranked last in many cases. everybody has to get together and get it solved. if they don't get together, we aren't going to have much of a country.... text in jesus. mr. trump: when did he say this? mr. trump: i know the pastor and he is very respected person. mr. trump: i looked at her and i have gut instinct and we are allowed to have that and i looked at her and asked a question and it was a very positive question and looks like she has a great look -- look at that with the tears. how nice. seemed like a good person to me. now maybe she won't qualify because you have to qualify, but i think she will. shell looked to me like she is a good person. i have good instincts. i have a good instinct about you and you are a very fine reporter. she made the immediate impression. tomorrow she'll move out to hollywood. go ahead.... text mr. trump: give me a break. on super tuesday, i won four out of five and did well in ohio. and if i had two more days in ohio, i would have won it. primaries? mr. trump: we have so many people calling and in terms of delegates, the delegates you are hearing about want to come with us. i think we are going to get a lot of delegates. some people are saying we are going to be at 14, 15. we'll see. the worst that happens, i go back to this, which isn't so bad. but i think we are doing very, very well. and i think we will qualify over that number. and if we are 30 short or 50 short, nobody else is going to be close. ted cruz won't even be close and if we are a little bit short, people have to decide are you going to go with somebody. remember. this is important. when i was putting my delegates together, i guess we started, there must have been 12 or 14 people in the race. it wasn't like i was running against one or two people. easy to put together the 1,237 delegates. but i had senators, i had a great doctor, i had carly and many, many other people running. i was doing well and i was leading the pack. but people were 5%, 10%, 15%. to get 50% is a little bit unfair when you have a group of people that started out at around 12. when we got to the elections, the primaries, it was around 12 or 13 people. then they started leaving. but you know, even now, we have the three. hillary had one. much different. much different. and i think i would love the reporters, i would like you to make that point. we have a lot of delegates. we are almost up to 700 which is substantially more than anybody else, but i got the delegates the hard way and running against many, many different people. all accomplished, all senators, governors, successful people. now we're down to three and we'll see what happens.... text think --? mr. trump: i'm an outsider. i understand it. there are senators, governors, congressmen, men and women and they aren't used to this and a lot of people don't like it because i haven't taken campaign contributions. they want campaign contributions and a lot of the people, the donors, some of those are friends of mine. i had donors come up to my office offer me millions of dollars and said i would love to take it, but i can't. by the way, he said i'm going to go with someone else. i said why. he said i have to. they are gamblers. when i said i don't want your money, they go someplace else. they do that. they are gamblers in a certain sense. yes, go ahead.... text mr. trump: dr. carson is a great guy. mate. mr. trump: he came over and we met and had a good relationship. once i got to know him and know me, he is a fineman, a fine person with a great family. we will be talking to ben carson about a lot of things. that's great. i'm glad that you told me that. i know that. thank you.... text team. mr. trump: yes. i gave them page one. mr. trump: i used also my son-in-law where is he? his wife is about two minutes away from having a baby. so he's here and coming to apac. jar odd spoke to many of his friends from israel and we put together a lot of great people. ivanka is having a baby and he is getting ready to get going.... text mr. trump: he has a different opinion. but i do like different opinions. yes, go ahead. mr. trump: chinese tourists will be involved. investment i don't need. they don't have to give me their money. but the tourists, we want tourists from china.... text your values? mr. trump: i don't think so. i think we will do fine in utah. wasn't one of the states we were projected to win, but i had one speech there and it was massive. we turned away 5,000 people. you saw what happened. and i think we'll do well there. wasn't a state. i was going out to arizona and i have a lot of friends in utah and we stopped and made a speech and had a great response to it. i don't know. i don't know. there will be some. go ahead.... text mr. trump: no. the e.u.? mr. trump: yes. i don't want to make a comment about them leaving. i'm there a lot. i have a lot of investments in the u.k. and i think they may leave based on everything i'm hearing.... text mr. trump: you have to ask them. i just think they may leave. mr. trump: the head of mexico wants to do that? we are going to bring it back. we are going to bring it back. look, we have a tremendous trade deficit with mexico, $58 billion. we have tremendous problems coming across the border. mexico could stop one day. we are going to build a wall. but if mexico wanted, they could. do you know how tough it is to become a citizen of mexico? you have a baby on the land, then you are a citizen. congratulations. try that in mexico. they laugh in your face. i would understand why they would want people to vote against me. the people of mexico like me. if you look at the exit polls out in nevada, we do very, very well with the hispanics. go ahead.... text convention? mr. trump: he called me last week and couldn't have been nicer. he was -- just could not have been nicer. i have tremendous -- i have millions and millions of people behind me. we want to bring confidence and sanity back to this country and we want to do a lot of great things and to be honest with you, the republicans should be embracing -- look, there is something happening with our country that's never happened to the extent that has happened now. millions of additional people are going out and voting in primaries and in the democrat case they are down 35%. nobody cares about hillary and bernie. we are up we're up 72%. some states are up over 100% and that's because of me. now, they can play games and they can play cute. i can only take him at face value. i understand due policity. i understand a lot of things, but he called me last week. he could not have been nicer. i spoke to mitch mcconnell. he could not have been nicer. if people want to be smart, they need to embrace this movement. "time" magazine called this a movement. if they want to be smart. if they don't want to be smart, they should do what they're doing now and the republicans will go down to a massive loss and all of these people, the millions of people that are coming out to vote for me -- because you look at south carolina. i wasn't supposed to win south carolina. and i won in a landslide. i wasn't supposed to win in nevada. i won in a landslide. i wasn't supposed to won many -- i won in the south. look at alabama. i mean, we're getting close to 50% with a lot of candidates. that was when you had even more candidates. so if they want to embrace this, it's great. let me tell you, if they don't win, you're going to have probably four and could even be five supreme court justices approved that will never allow this country to be the same. it will take 100 years but that won't work. so they better be careful, and i certainly should be careful with third party stuff. if trump gets it we're going to start a third party. that means the democrats are going to win. almost certainly. i mean, one of the -- you can't be that spiteful. you can't be that spiteful because you'll destroy the country. third party will destroy the country. i'm going to be submitting a list in the next week or so -- i've already shown it to a lot of people. and, you know, a lot of people are worried about which judges. i want a -- we're going to have a conservative, very good group of judges. i'm going to submit a list of justices, potential justices of the united states supreme court that i will appoint from the list. i won't go beyond that list. i'm going to let people know because some people say, maybe i'll appoint a liberal judge. i'm not going to appoint a liberal judge. heritage foundation and others are working on it already. and with some thoughts of mine -- i already named a couple. we'll probably between seven and 10 judges that i think will meet the highest standards, the highest standards and from that list we'll pick supreme court judges. and i make that pledge because i want people to understand, that is the single biggest problem -- it will be terrible losing the election because the country's going in the wrong direction. but if the new president is a democrat and picks very liberal people, this country is in big, big trouble. ok. tom. go ahead.... text mr. trump: i think you'll see what happens. maybe i won't. i have a team. we have a very good team that's in place. a professional team. i'll give you names later. it's a top-of-the-line team. if he gets the votes he gets the votes. i think we'll do well. i think we'll have a big night in arizona and we'll see. that's a lot of -- like i said we'll win florida. people say, how do you beat the face of the republican party? don't forget, i watched your show and you did a show on rubio. i have no problems with him. but you did a show four, five months ago on rubio and you said he's the future of the republican party, he's the face. so trump won against the face of the republican party and beat him by 20 points. you know, that was a big win. and out of 67 counties, i won 66 which is unprecedented. it's never happened before. i think we're going to do well in arizona. i hope to do well in wisconsin. and i hope to do well in a lot of other places but i think we can put it away.... text mr. trump: sure. i don't want violence. let me just tell you, i rent a stadium or whatever. we had 21,000 people near phoenix. we had 6,000 people in tucson over the weekend. and both of them on the same day. both with very short notice. 21,000 people and we gave them short notice. couple of days. they blocked the road. these are professional agitators. they blocked the road. they used foul language. they put up signs using the f bomb and all sorts of words that were horrible. these are not good people. the people that are supporters are unbelieveably good people. the gentleman who i understand was in the air force. i haven't found too much about it yet. i hear he had a very fine record in the air force. he was given a certain finger on a hand. he was talked to horribly and he was also looking at somebody that came up with somebody dressed as a member of the cuclux klan and he happened to be -- ku klux klan and he happened to be an african-american, a supporter. it was a shame what happened. he saw a member of the ku klux klan and you people don't write that. you know, it's interesting. it's interesting because at the beginning of the news cycle earlier in the morning they showed the ku klux klan guy walking up the stairs. an hour or two later you didn't see that anymore. you just saw the man hitting. and i said, isn't that a shame? they took it out of the cycle which you did it -- it's terrible. this is an african-american man who's a supporter, who has a great family and he has had enough. i'll be honest with you, in this country, on a larger scale, the people of this country have had enough. they've had enough where we're losing our jobs. they've had enough where we're losing all our trade. i mean, you look at these trade deals that we had. they had enough where our military can't beat isis. they've had enough with the increasing in obamacare where you have 35%, 45%, 55% increases in obamacare and your deductible is so high you can't even use it. it really essentially isn't health insurance. people in this country are fed up. ok. mark, go ahead.... text mr. trump: you know, honestly, mark, i don't see threats. you have people going against you, that happens in life whether in politics or not. i think they're misguided. i think the people that go against me should embrace me and i'd embrace them very easily. they should embrace me because -- you reported on it. they have said in your circles, there has never been an event like that -- like what we're doing through in the history of politics. i've had people that you know very well say in the history of politics. we have millions and millions of people all over the world they're talking about it and to be honest with you, mark, they should embrace it. but they don't so that would be a threat. if they don't embrace it that's always a threat. yeah. go ahead, sir.... text of your own party? mr. trump: look, again, jeff sessions and others have endorsed me. we have great congressman. i watch them on television a lot. they endorse me. i do want to say this. i don't want to drive you folks crazy. people that are watching that are against me aren't really against me because they're calling me. i've seen people on television, we have to stop donald trump, we have to stop and they're on the phone with me an hour and a half before and they want to set up a meeting. you have a lot of people out there that you think are against me and it's just politicians. they want to make a deal. they want to come in and they want to be part of it. people really do want to be part of it.... text mr. trump: they have to embrace what's happening. we have people, many democrats are coming over. this is why we're going to beat hillary clinton. if i'm running it i'm going to beat her. we have democrats coming in. i mean, we have, mark, 20% of the democrats come in for the last primary. 20% were democrats. but we have independents coming in vast numbers. and the most amazing thing, we have many, many people. you wouldn't think there were this many people who have never voted before. they've never voted before, sarah. you know that. i see it when i'm doing the rope lines or signings or shaking of the hand. they say, mr. trump, i have never, ever voted. we are talking about 30-year-old men. 40-year-old women. my oldest is 93 years old from tennessee. she's never voted before. this incredible woman. i actually interviewed her a couple of -- and she's so excited. and she's going to be voting. 93 years old from tennessee. so i just tell you that there's something that's amazing that's happening. the other thing is we're going to get states that other republicans can never even think of like michigan. michigan's not in the road of, you know, if you look at it. ohio is a state we have to win, right? you have to win florida. you have to win virginia. you have to win pennsylvania. they don't ever talk about michigan because they say you can't even think about it. i think we have a shot at new york. new york values. remember new york values. do you think ted cruz will win new york? i don't think so. if you win new york it's over because it's got so many del combates. so i think we have a chance at winning new york and various other states we're going to win that nobody else can win. that makes it a whole different contest. but think in terms of michigan. i won michigan really big. don't forget kasich was out in michigan. he stayed there. he slept there. he actually made the statement that if he doesn't win michigan he's going to leave the race. he was so sure of michigan and he lost michigan in a landslide to me. so i'm going to win michigan and i'm going to win other states that no other republican candidate can win. that from the electoral college standpoint throws this thing much -- it makes it a much bigger deal. ok. one or two more.... text and -- mr. trump: i don't denounce the country. i want them to pay us some money. israel? mr. trump: i think israel will do that also, yeah. there are many countries that can pay and they can pay big. we're supporting south korea. i order thousands of television sets from south korea. they're a behemoth economically. every time north korea raises its head they do anything, they sneeze. we start sending the ships, the planes, anything else. we don't get proper reimbursement for that. now, i like south korea. i have property in south korea. i like it. i have a lot of friends in south korea. they can't believe they get away with it, to be honest. germany can't believe it. you know who really can't believe it? saudi arabia. we have saudi arabia, the richest country no matter how you cut it, they were making -- i tell this. until recently but now they're making half which is still -- they were making $1 billion a day. and we subsidized the military. it's ridiculous. it's ridiculous. and they wouldn't be there except for us. this is how we're going to get our wealth back. this and other things, trade deals. ok. one more question. one more. who's got a good question? who's got a good question? who's my favorite reporter? go ahead.... text mr. trump: sure. i want a better relationship with everybody. yeah. i want a better relationship with russia. mr. trump: no, i don't think so. putin says very nice things about me. i think that's very nice. it has no effect on me other than i think it's very nice. if we can get along with russia, that's very good. if russia wants to spend millions of dollars a day dropping bombs on isis, i'm ok with that. you know, i'm ok with that. some people don't like it. they say, no, it's our job. let russia if they want do do that i'm all for it. no, i want to get along with all countries. and we will. we will have much better -- you look at what china is doing in the south china sea. that's so very disrespectful to obama and to our country. you take a look what they're doing in the south. they're building a massive military complex. and yet they're draining us for money. they're taking money out of our country where we're building -- we are rebuilding china. so, no, i want to get along with all countries. and you know, the interesting thing we'll do much better with all countries and yet we'll get along with them better too. ok. go ahead. real fast. go ahead. reporter: i mean, many of the people that i watch on television that are supporting somebody else are really supporting me or they want to and they will as soon as we say yes. but you're going to see a lot of people. ok.... text mr. trump: we'll look at that. we'll look at pro-life. we'll look at that. we'll look at intellect. very important. like we want very, very smart people. we want conservatives on the supreme court but we're going to be making up a list from seven to 10 people. i will be distributing that list in the very near future. ok. thank you very much, everybody. thank you. thank you very much. let's take a tour. nobody asked about the hotel. does anybody want to see -- first of all, this room -- does anybody want to see what we're building now? the largest luxury ballroom in washington by far, we could take a look. then if anybody wants to go up at the rooms and suites, they're giving some tours. they are magnificent. the building was gutted down to the basics. it was gutted down to the steel except for this area because this area is all a landmark and we have magnificent suites, rooms, meeting rooms and we're building a ballroom. if you follow me i'll give you a tour of the ballroom. come on, mark. come on. follow me.
