the 10th ammendment is as important as all the other ones. we have traveled all over it. -- trampled all over it. >> the clean water act says it should be enacted at the state level. they did not consult with the state, or the people who would be affected by it -- the municipalities, the farmers, all these other people. >> i'm not sure about that. in this case, there is broad-based opposition from everything from the rivers community, the agricultural group.

we need an exit and entry visa system that knows where people are. 40% of illegal immigrants come with a legal visa, and they come to the airport like everyone else, but they stay. that is a totally different strategy. there, we should coordinate with local law enforcement so someone in denver or orlando who has overstayed their visa, we should deputize law enforcement. third, we need an e-verify system. if a business here in iowa is and they have no ability to know whether someone is legal or illegal, there are to be away for them to know when they are hiring someone, they know is that person is here legally. for the people here illegally, they should get a provisional work permit pay a small fine, pay taxes, learn english along
and not which many do rea receive government assistance. and they get legal status, not a green card, but legal status. they don't cut in the line for people patiently waiting. heard, thelan i have round them all up plan, conservativea think tank, it would cost between 400-600,000,000,000 dollars and be disruptive. great question. thank you. he is hanging in there. >> is he doing ok? mr. bush: thank you. >> congratulations.

we won't get calls at the white house if i am president saying we have got to do this. how do we create the greatest morale? everything else is secondary. there has to be a sea change in attitude from top-down.

what is your idea about [indiscernible] mr. bush: we have complicated things in our life today. you have to do it. but you can do it. what do you think about it? a drone came up 50 feet in the air. it is there to see who is at the event. a drone checking out what was going on at the event. you don't think we could have drone technology and g.p.s. technology to know where people are crossing the border? that would create a deterrent. we can do this. we can do it. it has to be every week saying, what are we doing? a change in strategy. you've got to be a leader on this stuff.
they don't just island in. appreciate you. they don't just dial it in. appreciate you. stay out of trouble. we can do it. our live coverage of the eye with state tomorrow with more presidential hopefuls speaking the "des moines register" soapbox. rick santorum will be followed by lincoln chafee. at 3:00, vermont senator bernie sanders. we also expect to see hillary clinton and donald trump stopped by -- stop by sometime tomorrow. we will bring you live coverage throughout the day on c-span. was in hampton, new hampshire, friday for a town hall meeting at a local high school. he also held a news conference with reporters prior to the
made a much stronger deal. for he had them in a position where we could have done much better. the deal is a neutral deal and could have been much better. the concept of opening up is ok, but we should have made a much better, stronger deal. yes. >> [indiscernible] mr. trump: well, i said that in a very sarcastic fashion. it is helping china because china is doing little about global warming. this country has gone overboard. you saw what happened the other day with president obama's bill. it will put costs out of control, and we have to compete with china and the rest of the world. china loves what we are doing on global warming, that i can tell you. you go over to china and see what their factories are doing. their factories are doing absolutely nothing having to do with global warming, and they won't for many years. china is making it impossible
between the devaluations which i was just talking about with some of the --somebody who really knows the subject. the devaluations and the whole thing global warming, china is making it impossible for our companies to compete. we have to get smart in this country and fast. yes, ma'am. >> [indiscernible] spent $2 trillion in iraq. we lost thousands of lives in iraq. we have wounded warriors who i love all over this country and beyond. ok? was it worth it? we have nothing over there. his brother made a horrible decision, and president obama made a horrible decision the way he left. when he left, he should have taken the oil instead of giving it to isis and enron. -- iran. you know the primary
beneficiary is? china is taking out the oil. you should not have gone in. once you went in, you should never have -- i mean you go in, you never won. but what a mistake iraq was. i heard jeb bush talking about it. first of all, it took in five days before he could give an answer. after the pollsters told him what to say, he said it was bad. now he is trying to backtrack, probably because his brother said you're killing me, you said it is bad. that is my legacy, the iraq war. iraq war is a disaster for the bushes. the last thing we need is another bush, believe me. saddam hussein, instead of him, you have isis. instead of him, you have iran taking over. so you tell me, was it worth what we paid for? yes, sir. >> [indiscernible] mr. trump: i said they are terrible.
not destroyed, but they are pretty well destroyed. i think i would have a great relationship with russia and putin. >> [indiscernible] mr. trump: it depends. they have to behave also. i think i would get along very well with putin. i know many of the people. i had a major event there two years ago in moscow, as you know. it was a tremendous success. we had an amazing success, and i think i would get along very well with putin. i think i would get along with the leaders of the world very well, many of them, not all of them. the ones i don't get along with will have to pay. we have to make our country great again, and we are not doing it. we are going in the wrong direction. we are going like this. we are a laughingstock all over the world. ok? yes, sir. go ahead. >> mr. trump: new hampshire has a huge heroin problem. per capita, the biggest in the whole country. new hampshire has a huge year
when problem -- carolyn -- heroin problem. education, working hard. you have to get people to understand the problem. it starts with oxycontin from what i am hearing. you have to educate and do something very strong. but it does have a big problem. i have been hearing it from everybody. bigger per capita than any place else. yes, ma'am. >> mr. trump: it will be very soon. i have some of the most brilliant people in the country working on tax, which i am involved in very much because i understand the system very well, probably better than anybody that has ever run for office if you want to know the truth, because i am part of the system. we have some amazing people working on immigration, so i would say over the next two or three weeks. probably sometime during september. hashat about what putin done? mr. trump: ukraine is a problem.
at some point, don't you think the countries of europe should be more involved than they are? we are leading all of these fights. ukraine is a big problem. germany is a rich, powerful country. economically, from it is our -- tremendous power. unbelievable economic power. why isn't germany? do we have to lead every fight? ukraine is a problem, and we should help them. but let germany and other countries directly affected, let them work it. we have enough problems in this country. we have to rebuild our country. china and other countries have drained us. china has created the greatest theft in the history of the united states. if you think about it, it is the greatest theft in the history of the united states, the money they had taken out from us. it is a one-way street. so, we have enough problems. folks, and we back
our friends. and we want them to straighten out ukraine. i want to see it straightened out also. but don't you think germany and those countries directly affected should be fighting? it is almost like they don't even care. they don't even care. i think i would get along great with him. who knows? what i think i would get along great with him, the man. how are you? >> [indiscernible] rand paul, you have to understand, is a disaster in the polls. he is a disaster on military and defense. he is getting decimated by everybody. other than giving him a lot of money for an eye center at his request, he said, could i have money? i said yes because i thought it was worth it. a lot of money for an eye center
which is hypocritical when you think about it. other than giving him a tremendous amount of money for his eye center, which i'm happy about because i'm sure they do good work, i hope they do good work. he is doing so badly he figures he has to attack trump because i am leading by what everywhere. i don't mind. i think he is never going to make it. can't make it. got the wrong message. i mean, this is not a time to be weak on defense. i am the opposite. i want to make our military so strong, so powerful, so great that nobody is going to mess with us. i want to take care of our vets who are treated like third class citizens. two weeks ago on wednesday, our vets, as you know and probably reported on it because you have a big problem here with that's -- vets not taking care of properly, our debts have the longest week in the history of the v.a., waiting for doctors in
rooms. they wait for or five or six days. in one case, they waited five days and the doctor said sorry, i'm going on vacation now. our politicians, all talk, no action. they are all the same. our politicians have let the vets down. rand paul has let the vets down. i don't blame him. he's doing so poorly in the polls. i have been attacked by perry of texas. and he went bing like a rocket ship in the wrong direction. i was attacked by lindsey graham. he had two points. now he has zero. rand paul has very few points, but i think he is going down, too. rand paul is using the people of kentucky. either run for senate and do a good job or run for president. you don't run for president, and by the way if i don't make it, i
will become your senator reluctantly. if i were a good, strong republican from kentucky, i would run against him in a heartbeat and win because the people of kentucky are being used by rand paul. think of >> i work with a veterans advocacy group. mr. trump: good. did you hear that? it takes over three years to process one veterans claim. i think they have run out of competence. peopleve incompetent running it. it
