tv Erin Burnett Out Front CNN September 14, 2015 4:00pm-5:01pm PDT
>> jeffrey, sunny and don, thank you. thank you so much for watching. i'm brianna keilar in for wolf blitzer in "the situation room." he's here tomorrow. erin burnett "outfront" is up next. speaking live in this hour, donald trump brings his boisterous style to supporters in dallas. plus, with the cnn debate less than 48 hours away, how does jeb bush take on the king of the one liners, donald trump? and turn around his own fading poll numbers. and carly fiorina turned a trump insult into her advantage. will she double-down at the debate and try to goad trump into another? let's go "outfront." good evening. i'm jim sciutto in again tonight for erin burnett and "outfront,"
breaking news, donald trump stages a texas-sized rally. minutes from now addressing a big, boisterous crowd at the american airlines center in dallas. this arena, normally home to the nba dallas mavericks, seats up to 20,000 people. the tickets are free tonight but scalpers getting as much as $100 a piece to see trump live. the seats are filling up very quickly. the inside crowd in that arena may be excited but there is a crowd outside that is angry. latino protesters marching from a nearby cathedral to the arena staging what they call a dump the trump rally. a new poll from marist reflects that anger. it shows 70% of the latino voters view the gop front-runner negatively. still, trump's two-month ride atop of the polls climbing only higher. a washington post poll shows trump getting 33% of the vote, his highest standing yet. mark cuban is owner of the nba
team normally filling seats in the arena tonight wished trump well. "the buzz in dallas is amazing. you will crush it." all of this heading up to the debate at the reagan library in simi valley, california. trump is the leading target, something that he says he is prepared for. >> i guess i'm going into a lion's den. somebody will attack. somebody like a rand paul who is down at 2%. he'll make an attack. >> tonight, ed lavandera is on the street with the dump the trump protesters. and sara is inside. what is the scene tonight? what is the energy tonight? what are they expecting? >> reporter: jim, they are certainly expecting a very big rally. like you said, the capacity for the stadium is 20,000 people. it's not full yet but nonetheless the crowd is very festive. look, it's the normal concession
stand thing going on here. it's like a sporting event. people are buying beer and wine, chowing down on pizza and hot dogs. there was one fan that we talked to earlier today. take a look at why she says she loves donald trump. >> you cannot show up at a donald trump rally and not make a statement. like donald. so i am wearing trump. i have my trump purse and my trump shoes and i'm all about trump. oh, i love trump. from "the apprentice" to everything, you know, i mean, he does put his foot in his mouth sometimes, but don't we all? >> reporter: now, she said she woke up at 10:00 a.m. to start making that dress, jim. that was a big investment for her. a lot of folks are here for the festivity and want to see trump up close and are looking ahead to the cnn debate. that's where they want to get a lot more substance from the candidates on stage, including
donald trump. jim? >> we're minutes away from that and outside looking live at hundreds of latino protesters, they are taking part in a so-called dump the trump march. our ed lavandera is out there with them protesting trump's hard-line stance on immigration. ed, tell us what you are hearing from them and also how big that crowd is tonight. >> reporter: well, it is a growing crowd, jim, and we are just a few blocks away from the americanairlines center and the showdown, if you will, up trump supporters who have been showing up in loud numbers and this crowd has been growing as the march has been going on for a while or so from the cathedral from downtown dallas and now a few blocks away from the americanairlines center. as you mentioned, the dump the trump theme of this march, really protesting and voicing
their anger towards what they see is donald trump's divisive comments, especially on multicultural issues and latino issues here in the united states. a lot of pro-immigrant messages here. several donald trump pinatas which i'm told will be whacked at here within the hour or so as donald trump begins his speech here in downtown dallas. but as sara mentioned, this is an arena used for sporting events, mavericks, hockey games, concerts, this is exactly the kind of theme and spirit and kind of scene that we're seeing here in downtown dallas this afternoon. jim? >> chanting usa behind you there. i know this is always difficult, but are the police making any estimate of the size of the protesters that are there alongside with you? >> reporter: well, it's far. if we can't see the very end of it but i'm guessing by this point it's close to about 1,000 people. there's a designated protest area just outside the arena
where they have been pinned up. there's a stage there. this particular event will continue go down as donald trump begins his show inside the americanairlines center. but probably estimate -- it's hard to tell right now but probably close to 1,000 people on the streets here making their way towards the americanairlines center. >> you can see the contrast, the excitement generated outside from his opponents, his critics, and inside certainly excitement as well. "outfront" now, gloria borger. you look at the pictures from inside the arena. an estimated 20,000 people. looks like he's going to meet that number because i can't spot an empty seat in that crowd. people scalping tickets. here's the key question. how does he and can he translate these crowds at early events like this in the primary votes? you know, we really don't know the answer to that, jim.
donald trump is not about a plan, an ideology. he's about an idea. and the idea is, i'm an outsider, i am different. what voters are doing right now or potential voters are doing right now is they are window shopping. this is early on. after the window shopping comes the scrutiny. so we don't know, honestly, enough about donald trump and, more importantly, we really don't know enough about the primary voters yet. and all of the polls we're looking at, we don't know which of these voters are going to be actual participants in the primaries or which of these folks are actually filling that arena and other places because they want to get a look at a celebrity and they love donald trump. but we're not sure if these are the same folks that are actually going to go to the polls in iowa, new hampshire and south carolina. we don't know yet. >> he could conceivably bring people to the polls that don't normally go. >> he could. >> tomorrow he's heading to
california. he's going to be on the "uss iowa" to speak about veterans affairs. he spoke over the weekend about his tax plan. i wonder, in those statements, in those speeches, are you seeing trump making an effort to be a more serious candidate, in effect? >> yeah, a more presidential candidate, absolutely. now that he's gotten everybody's attention -- and by the way, i think it's a really smart thing to do to give a speech on national security before he gets on that stage before the cnn debate because he's going to be asked about foreign policy. he understands the kind of scrutiny that he's going to get. he understands that he's got to put meat on the bones and he's starting to do that because what his opponents are doings they are attacking him from the right and they are saying, you know what, donald trump is not a real conservative, he used to be a democrat and so he's got to sort
of fend that off and let these potential voters know where he stands on the issues, aside from immigration, for example, which is the one issue we know exactly where it stands. >> gloria borger, part of our a-team that is going to be out there for the republican debates on wednesday. >> it's going to be interesting. >> great to have you on, as always. "outfront," next, we're standing by for an appearance by donald trump. he's speaking before a big crowd in dallas. that is the crowd there. it's just minutes away. plus, in a new poll, trump is winning over four times as many voters as jeb bush. what does jeb bush need to do to turn those numbers around? when you're not confident your company's data is secure, the possibility of a breach can quickly become the only thing you think about. that's where at&t can help. at at&t we monitor our network traffic
i started with pills. and now i take a long-acting insulin at night. i take mine in the morning. i was trying to eat right, stay active. but i wasn't reaching my a1c goal anymore. man: my doctor says diabetes changes over time. it gets harder to control blood sugar spikes after i eat and get to goal. my doctor added novolog® at mealtime for additional control. now i know. novolog® is a fast-acting, injectable insulin and it works together with my long-acting insulin. proven effective. the mealtime insulin doctors prescribe most. available in flexpen®. vo: novolog® is used to control high blood sugar in adults and children with diabetes. take novolog® as directed. eat a meal within 5 to 10 minutes after injection. check your blood sugar levels. do not take novolog® if your blood sugar is too low or you're allergic to any of its ingredients. tell your doctor about all medical conditions
and medicines you take. ask your doctor about alcohol use, operating machinery, or driving. the most common side effect is low blood sugar. symptoms may include dizziness, sweating, confusion, and headache. severe low blood sugar can be life-threatening. other common side effects include low potassium in your blood and injection site reactions. get medical help right away if you experience trouble with breathing, serious allergic reactions like swelling of your face, tongue, or throat, sweating, extreme drowsiness, dizziness, or confusion. now i know about novolog®. taken by millions since 2001. vo: ask your health care provider about adding novolog®. it can help provide the additional control you may need. . you're looking at live pictures from the american airlines center where thousands, it's estimated as many as 20,000 people have gathered to see the
front-runner the. hard to spot an empty seat inside of the arena. but outside, hundreds are marching against trump's immigration policies. tonight is a well-planned buildup to wednesday's republican primary debate. while trump is campaigning, the other candidates are taking the night off, prepping for the debate, knowing that donald trump is the candidate to beat. >> i guess i'm going into a lion's den. >> so far, those attacking me, including jeb bush, when he started he was at 18. now he's at 7 and 8. i don't know if that's because of me but it certainly seems to be unlucky to attack me. >> i'll campaign hard. if somebody comes at me, bam, i'll come back at them. don't worry about that. >> "outfront," ana navarro is
live in simi valley. wednesday night could be a make or break night for him. how does he take trump on without diminishing himself in the process or being someone that he is not in the process? >> donald trump obviously wants a fight. he's picking a fight with jeb bush and with other candidates. not just jeb bush. carly fiorina, ben carson, you name it. and if trump wants a fight, he should get a fight. i think jeb and the others should give him that fight and draw a contrast between themselves and trump but also deliver shots that stick, that are memorable. lines that are effective. you know, you need to -- land blows. it's not just about throwing blows. i also think he has a -- jeb
doesn't have the luxury that trump does. no other candidate does, of being able to flub the policy. he needs to be right on the spot with it because people consider him the policy guy. and so he needs to be able to do both things at the same time. deliver shots and be right on the policy. >> speaking on the policy, alex, i want to ask you, jeb has gone after trump for his attacks on latino immigrants, as you know. and he released a new video today, featuring his wife columba. >> i have lived my life here. so, you know, i agree that we all have the same interests and feelings. >> we go to church every sunday. we have celebrations with the family. we keep with traditions. but at the end, it's just that, you know, faith, friends and family. >> tonight, you have protesters
delivering a very similar message. i wonder, alex, is trump considering softening that rhetoric in light of the growing power of the latino vote? >> it's a great question but, no, i don't think he's going to. i think if you polled the people protesting right now, you're not going to see a lot of people participating in the republican primary. at our website, breitbart news, most are grassroot conservative voters and they are very loyal and their number one issue has been since last year immigration. they are looking for someone who will seal the border and prioritize border security as number one, unlike the people outside. but those people are not going to be voting. >> ana, people have -- those voters have memories until the general election a little more than a year away from now. a new york times op-ed welcoming donald trump to the race and calling him a god-send because he has the potential to unlock the potential of america's
latino electorate. is trump damaging the gop's chances, ana, in a general election? >> you know, i think most latinos are going to be able to tell the difference between trump and some of the other people in the race. certainly it's very hard to equate trump to a marco rubio who is a latino or jeb bush who is completely bicultural. what we've seen in this republican party and this republican field right now is a tremendous breath of diversity of thought. people have very different positions and opinions on issues like immigration and so, no, i think -- you know, i think it's all going to depend on who the nominee is. if it's trump, we have a problem. either he's going to have a problem with a latino. those bridges are burnt. if it's not trump, i think that there's a lot of growing room that is going to be done. it's going to require a lot of work but i think that, you know, another nominee can make strides with a latino vote.
>> alex, i want to give you a chance to respond. do you think voters will look at the candidates in broad strokes? remember, a lot of candidates are responding to trump's hard line on immigration with a tax of their own. >> you know, i completely disagree with ana here and i don't think it's helpful for the republican party to say that he's doing damage with latinos. i think trump is growing the big tent. you're hearing people like richard trumka say nice things about him. you heard a black rapper say that trump's policies are appealing to blacks. there are polls out there saying trump is actually doing fine with latinos. presumably, the ones who are already citizens and not here illegally or hope to bring family here illegally but those are the core voters and the voters we really want. >> ana navarro and alex, we have to leave it ere. thanks for coming on. "outfront" next, we're waiting for donald trump. he's about to address a big crowd in dallas. it's his first visit to texas
since his controversial visit to the border. protesters are outside that rally. we're live in dallas. ♪ ♪ hp instant ink can save you up to 50% on ink delivered to your door ...so print all you want and never run out. plans start at $2.99 a month. ♪ the most affordable way to print. hp instant ink. can a a subconscious. mind? a knack for predicting the future.

breaking news, you're looking at live pictures of the americanairlines arena in downtown dallas where donald trump is expected to take the stage in just a few minutes. it seats 20,000 people. hard to find an empty seat. looks like he's filling most of them. cnn political commentator ben ferguson is right there in the crowd. ben, you live in dallas and host a conservative radio talk show there. i'm curious, how broad is the excitement over trump's candidacy in the republican base because you always have this question, how many folks are coming out to support him? how many folks are coming out to watch the show, in effect? >> i think a lot of the people here are here to support donald
trump. the people walking in the building were certainly excited about him being here. it almost had a concert-like feeling. there seems to be a lot of people that like how blunt and bold he's being. they got everybody rounded up by singing the anthem. this is why he's polling at 32%. >> 33%. >> 33%, yeah. >> i want to ask you, in no state we know, the immigration is more front and center than there. you have the protesters outside. their numbers is not matching the numbers inside but it's a sizeable showing. i'm just wondering, how much of a divisive issue is that there in texas right now? >> well, it's certainly a big issue but a lot of people in
texas have been talking in a blunt way about immigration reform. a lot more often than anybody other states around the country because it's a border state. so whether it be the governor putting the national guard down there, governor perry, this has been a normal conversation and you really do not have a massive amount of protesters. you had some of them but not what some people were expecting and a lot of people have connected with trump. rick perry was loved in this state. he could not have gotten a crowd anywhere close to this a week ago when he was still on the m campaign and donald trump has filled the majority of the arena up and that's because he's blunt, straight talking and think he's going to do something on the border or build that wall that he's been talking about for so long and that's why a lot of these people are here. >> you can see and hear now that energy, ben ferguson, thanks for taking us through t. liit, live the scene. we're going to stay with

breaking news tonight, donald trump is ex petted to speak at any moment. this is a live shot from dallas texas where trump will take the stage surrounded by a massive audience. the city's slogan, big things happen here and tonight it appears to be true. up to 20,000 supporters rallying inside that arena while protesters against trump's immigration policies marching outside. they are holding a so-called dump the trump rally. the republican front-runner is polling at his highest rating to date, two days before the cnn debate at the reagan library. ed lavandera is outside there. what is the crowd like out there, ed? ♪ >> reporter: intense outside here. this is the designated protest area. i would say a couple of thousand protesters, mostly latino protesters that have come out
here. a lot of signs out here protesting the comments and what has been perceived as highly divisive comments made by trump over the last few months since he started his race for the presidency. dump the trump is trying to really attack his anti-immigrant -- what they perceive as his anti-immigrant message that has been in many ways made him so popular among other segments across the country. but this rally going on just outside. you can see the crowd out here, we're just outside the americanairlines center. inside here, behind these gates, behind these walls, these gates, is where donald trump will be speaking shortly. but this is a crowd that has marched more than a mile from the catholic cathedral in downtown dallas all the way around here and this crowd stretches here on the north side of the arena. several thousand people. and there's a stage over there where they will begin doing
speeches here shortly as the crowd has continued to grow in anticipation of donald trump's appearance here in downtown dallas. jim? >> rallies competing national anthem. sara is inside. it doesn't look like a seat is empty. set the scene for us tonight. >> reporter: the crowd is roaring and it's the speakers warming up the crowd for donald trump. he is in the building. he met with family members who were killed by undocumented immigrants. you can expect to hear more from donald trump about immigration rhetoric and more talk about sealing the borders and what he plans to do. as of right now, it's a very energetic crowd even though the arena is not entirely full, these people are very excited to see donald trump. >> sara murray, inside there, thank you. please stay with us until right after this break. we're going to come right back.

breaking news, live pictures here from dallas. this is the americanairlines center. we were just moments away from a live speech by donald trump, the gop front-runner. he has just been announced, you can see the crowd there looking and as he comes out on stage waving to the crowd, last person to introduce him, scottie hughes, a tea party activist. the crowd there estimated at some 20,000 people. this is normally where the dallas mavericks of the nba play. but as we've been looking at the picture, we can barely find an empty seat there. you can see the excitement as he's signing caps, most likely with the "keep america great" logo on it which he has become famous for. outside there are protesters in the hundreds. latinos are marching to protest
his hard-line immigration policies. it's safe to say that the crowd inside is larger than the one outside. tremendous amount of energy tonight. we heard earlier the "national anthem" being sung. watch as donald trump approaches the podium. this event in planning, you can say, leading up to wednesday's crucial gop presidential debate. that will be live here on cnn on wednesday night in simi valley, california. this part of an orchestrated advance of that debate, you might say. tomorrow, donald trump is going to be speaking about his national security plans and veterans also out in california on board the "uss iowa." let's listen to the gop front-runner, donald trump. >> wow! wow! [cheers and applause ] amazing. amazing! thank you. wow. so exciting. do you notice what's missing
tonight? teleprompters. no teleprompters. we don't want teleprompters. that would be so much easier. we read a speech for 45 minutes, everybody falls asleep listening to the same, old stuff, the same old lies. so much easier. so, you know, i have a little debate coming up on wednesday. and i hear my -- let's call them opponents. can we call them opponents? we're allowed to do that, right? new york was very nice to you last night. you know that, right? did they hand you that game? they handed it. i said, i am going to have the friendliest audience. sit down. i am going to have the friendliest audience. i wasn't sure, was i happy or
was i sad. but jerry jones is a great guy and deserves everything he gets, quite frankly. and another great guy is mark cuban. really. and i think -- you know, he's been talking a little bit about maybe some day doing this himself and i think he'd do very well. we may not have the exact same feelings about where we are going but that's okay. but mark was great. he actually called me like literally a few days ago and said, you know, if you want to use the arena, which is, by the way, a beautiful arena. this is a great arena. and derk, i love him, one of my favorite players. one of my favorite. and the mavericks have been fantastic and it's just a great team. but he said, if you want to use the arena. i said, mark, how about monday night? that was like in four days.
and you had a big holiday in between. and he said, i think, you know, they really like you in dallas. they really like you in texas. maybe you can get a lot of people. [cheers and applause ] because we were coming here and we thought maybe we'd get a thousand but we never get a thousand anymore. it's always the same thing. you know, we went to alabama. we started off with a 500-person ballroom and after about two minutes, look at all of these guys, aye-ya-aye. we started off, by the way, with a 500-person ballroom and after about two minutes the hotel called up begging for mercy. we can't do it. they were inundated. so we went to the convention center and that was 10,000 and that was wiped out in about an hour so we went to a stadium. we had 31,000 people. that was by far the largest they
say ever for an early primary. it's probably true. choep dhoep [cheers and applause ] >> and when i see these seats full at the top, can you people see me up there? i don't know. man! i said to them, don't fill up the upper wings, it's not fair. but you all are great. thank you. so i want to thank mark and i want to thank -- where is pastor jeffers? he's around here somewhere. come here. i love this guy. come here. i shouldn't say this. i should not say this, pastor, because, you know, i need all the help i can get and i will say, i'm leading with the
evangelicals big league and i really want to thank you because you've been so -- he said he may not be perfect but he's going to make this country great. he's a leader. that's what we need. and i want to thank you, pastor. he's been so great. and i am protestant. i am presbyterian, just in case anybody wants to know. so the polls come out and we're really killing it. we are killing it. [cheers and applause ] they mentioned a little while ago, scottie, about the silent majority. it's back. and it's not silent. i think we should call it -- maybe we should call it the noisy, the aggressive, the
wanting to win, wanting to win majority. that's what it is. we're tired of being pushed around by incompetent people. we're just tired of what's happening. we're sick and tired of what's happening. and it's going to change. it's going to change. but before i get to that, because that's unpleasant but it's going to be pleasant because i finished this speech last week and i have to say, we're going to have so many victories. at some point they are just going to be coming out of your ears. i have to be careful what i say about coming out of somebody's ear. i have to be careful. nose, ears, eyes, those are the only places i'm talking about. the only. but we're going to have so many
victories and they are going to be great victories. and we're going to have them all the time because we have an amazing country. we have a country that is dying to just want to have victory. we don't have winds anymore. we don't have it. so, the debate. i hear they are all going after me. whatever. whatever. no, i hear it. everybody -- you know, all these geniuses, the talking heads on -- some are great. actually, some have come around. you know, at the beginning, three, four months ago, well, he's just doing this for fun. he's doing this for his brand. i need this like for my brand. okay? but he's doing it for his brand. one person, a real loser, said, he's a clown. he's a clown. now they are saying, how do we stop this guy? no more clown.
i haven't heard the word "clown" in a while. i tell you, they don't use that word anymore. they don't use it. >> there's a group of pundits out there. i don't think they are smart. they wear their glasses and they look and they look. i'm not talking about perry. he's a nice guy. but he came after me hard. didn't he? you know, i had dinner with him a couple of years ago and i thought he was terrific and then he came after me really hard. i said, it's kind of easy, when someone drops out of the race i'm going to say that about everybody. but i like that man and frankly he tried but i'm talking about the guys who sit around the table and they talk about us, they talk about me and they say, well -- but most of them are now saying, we think he's going to
win. you know, can you believe it? now -- [cheers and applause ] we still have a few out there. the hatred is so incredible. it's so incredible. absolute hatred. i watch some of these guys, like this guy -- shall i mention names? okay. i will. the problem is, when i mention them, they can never, ever support me. that's the problem. and you know, look at all of those live television feeds. it's always tough. every time i speak they put me on live television so i have to make different speeches. these guys go around and make the same speeches hundreds and hundreds of times. nobody cares. it's true. it's true! [ applause ] it's true. you know, you have cnn live, you
have got them all. and -- who needs -- no, they are 50% good. 50%. they've been pretty nice. but you know, who really, when you think about it, who has to do this? so i come out today. look at all of those cameras back there. take a look, everybody. now, if you like the media, give them a big hand. and if you don't, give them a big boo. [ booing ]. >> i had a feeling. >> you know, the truth is, there's some really great people. i'm dealing usually in the world of financial. that's easy. it's numbers. you're either good or not good. it's much easier. but i find the press to be much more honorable in the financial media but the political media -- and i found some great ones.
there are some great ones. but should i mention some? no, i'm not going to do that here because then you're going to leave some out. but -- okay. so george will is a disaster. honestly, another one, karl rove. he's terrible. he's terrible. he's terrible. he still thinks that mitt romney won. he's still going around saying, i think he won. this guy -- think of this. he ought to be on wall street. he raises money pretty well. the last cycle, the last presidential election, he raised $434 million and didn't win one race. can you believe that? can you believe it? and i understand it because i saw some of the commercials that he made. i saw a commercial he made against barack obama. and i called up and said, who
did that commercial? it's one of the best commercials i've ever seen. i've got to use that firm. they are phenomenal. but i didn't realize it was against obama. it was the one with germany. remember, do you want a >> do you want -- i said he's not a rock star. we have an incompetent president. this is not a rock star. [ cheers ] >> we have a president that doesn't know what the hell he's doing. [ cheers ] >> so every night, some of these guys like george will and carl rovers, a few others, those i'll mention like anybody in the real estate business, right? couple of us? i love real estate. let me just tell you, one of the great people in sort of the andy biel. stand up. come on, he's a shy man. he's only worth about $6
billion. he's a great guy. been a great friend of mine. i don't want to borrow any money from him because he expects it to be paid back in full and on time, right, andy? but you look at some of these guys and they are like boilers, okay? real estate. they are like boilers. bill o'reilly said the other night, bill o'reilly is a great guy, good guy, great guy. although he's tough and he's tough with me, that i can tell you, some people say how can you say he's a great guy but he's fair but i saw carl rover on a show the other night and the name trump came up and you could see it was like a boiler ready to explode. [ laughter ] >> i think the guy is a total incompetent jerk, but him and there are others, but i would say this, anybody that gives him, carl rove and others the group of losers, anybody that gives them money, your losers
yourself, doesn't make sense because they don't know what they are doing. so the polls come out and everybody is surging but trump. they don't want to say i'm surging. i went up to 40% today in new hampshire. you saw that? 40%. [ cheers ] >> second, second is, i think, 11 or 12, right? 11 or 12 and i won't mention names because he's actually a nice guy. i'll mention names, why shouldn't i? should i? right? it's ben carson. he's a nice man. [ applause ] >> i think he's in second place at 11 or 12%. now i'm at 40 and it's actually 41 but they don't want to say that, they don't want to give me the benefit. if i'm 40. 9 they will say i'm at 40.
do you understand that? ben carson, good guy, i think he's 11 or 12 and they are saying carson, here is the headline, carson surging. i said what about me? where is my name? i'm at 40. where is my name? it's unbelievable. do you know where my name is? do you? they don't know where my name is, either. can you see in the back, they have the best view. can you see it's really my hair? [ cheers ] >> well, that's the other thing, i mean, i get killed on that. i had an article recently -- it's true. they have the best view. they know. not that bad, right? i mean, i have friends, it's over. i have many friends, the hair is over. but i had the article the other day, a great article, they said trump is a financial genius.
doing great, doing great here and but they said he wears the worst hairpiece, the writer says this, wears the worst hairpiece and i said that's terrible. i can't show the article to anybody even though it was good but in the polls so amazing. we started off and everybody said, you remember this, i won't run. i won't run. and i said why do they say that? i'm telling you i'm going to run. nbc came over and as you know, and i like nbc. for years we had "the apprentice" tremendous success, one of the greatest successes on television and the head of comcast, i just tell you his first name is steve and he's a phenomenal guy, steve burke, one of the great people, a great, great guy and a great manager. he came over with a group of people from nbc, steve is one of the, you know, head of comcast and they said, we're going to
renew "the apprentice" and by the way, it's a lot of money. did you see my certified financial statement when i made with "the apprentice"? i made $213 million. can you believe it? from a television show. and i had -- no, i had these announcers say oh, no, i think he only made $1 million and guys like joe who is a good guy said no, no, he's got a prime time show for years. when they checked it, so nbc renews "the apprentice" and i told them don't do it because i'm running for president. i'm going to make our country great again. don't renew it. [ cheers ] >> now you know if i make $213 million over a, you know, run of 12 years or whatever, that's a lot of money, even for me that's a lot. that's a lot of money.
that's pretty good, right? considering it's not my main business but i made this money and the people come up and they say, oh, well, we're going to renew it anyway because he's not going to run. so nbc renewed "the apprentice" and announced they renewed it and said donald trump would do not season and i don't them not to do it. then i told them that i'm not doing it again and they were so angry at me. they were so angry. but you know what? i give up a lot when -- when i do this i give up a lot. i miss these deals. i love my business. i love what i'm doing. andy can tell you that, tom bennenson can tell you that. i love club core ratiporation, way in case you haven't heard of tom. not only do i lose "the apprentice" i lose opportunity.
i have deals in china and deals all over the place i could do. boo, boo. but it's true. it's like picking up a check, like picking up a check but i give up a lot. when a politician all talk no action, politician runs, what do they give up? they give up nothing. they run, you know what? they run, they lose, they win, they don't care, with me, it's a whole big deal, it's a whole big deal and not doing it. [ cheers ] >> i'm not doing it. and i still awkward and stupid and i have guys offering me millions and millions of dollars
in one place, the lobbyists, special interest, don, we love you, guys we haven't heard from in ten years, don, we love you. 40% to new hampshire, winning iowa, we're killing in iowa. incredible people. new hampshire, incredible people. south carolina incredible people, incredible numbers there, too. we're winning in florida. think of it. you have jeb bush, governor of florida. you have a sitting senator in florida, marco rubio and the poll comes out the other day, trump is leading in florida. [ cheers ] >> can you imagine? big lead. how about this? have you ever heard of the great state of texas? [ cheers ] >> leading in texas. how does that happen?
so, so it's been an amazing period of time. i've never experienced anything like it and i've been well-known for a long period of time. that's why i got chosen for "the apprentice" in the first place and they called me up today, nbc, couldn't be nicer. they finally calmed down. i settled my lawsuit with them. did you hear? did you hear? yes, she heard. i settled my lawsuit with them last week. a lot of litigation. settled it. they couldn't have been nicer. and they called me today and wanted everything, you know, they want me on their side and i am on their side because i really like the guys at nbc, and they have announced or will soon announce, you know what will take the place of trump? arnold. arnold. arnold schwarzenegger. good, right? i think it's a good choice and he's a friend of mine and i approve 100% and i'm with him 100% and he will do great and raise money for charity. i'm still in there because i have a big chunk of it.
a lot of people don't know that, these are minor details. arnold will do great and they announced today arnold schwarzenegger will do "the apprentice." i can't do it because i'm doing this. i wish arnold well. we have so many problems in this country. we'll talk about a few of them. and we'll celebrate because ultimately, we're going to have victory. we're going to have victory. this is a movement that's happening. i had a lawyer come up to see me a little while ago that said mr. trump, i've been doing this for 35 years and never seen what happened here. i got a call from a writer from the new york times. i have great respect for ""the new york times." called up -- i know. i hear that. okay. good story, not a bad story. and he said could i ask you a question? i said what? very powerful writer, actually. he said how does it feel? how does what feel? he said what you've done has never
