Washington This Week CSPAN April 3, 2016 4:31pm-4:47pm EDT
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. [applause] mr. trump: if you are to presidential -- too presidential. [applause] mr. trump: if you are too presidential, you won't if the 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 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. [no audio] mr. trump: -- as stupid, stupid people as world leaders. we have got to stop it. we have got to stop it. [applause] mr. trump: so japan is a very big, very rich country, right? and we take care of japan and germany and with this and with that and this test and this juggernaut and this phenomenal,
powerful, rich country. and saudi arabia, i told you. these people don't have to pay for these services, and what i said about japan is this, we are protecting japan from many countries, but we are protected 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 doing. [applause] mr. trump: now there would be a 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. [applause] mr. trump: many other things. many other things. i love the united nations. they are wonderful. have they ever settled anything? it is just like a political 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. [applause] mr. trump: i explained to him
that i use marble and that 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. [applause] mr. trump: you know, a lot of these politicians, a lot of these politicians, they get up and say, "you are americans, you great, great people of our country, it doesn't matter whether you vote for me, orbital 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
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. [applause] mr. trump: we are going to win with trade so big, we are going to have money pouring back in, 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. [applause] mr. trump: so yesterday, i have a great honor, because i never asked for this, the border patrol people, 16,500 people, a 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 candidate before." [applause] mr. trump: we are by far the strongest on the border, and who is going to pay for the wall? crowd: mexico! mr. trump: who? crowd: mexico! mr. trump: we have a trade to with them, $58 billion per year.
think about it. can you believe that is not including the drugs growing across the border -- drugs going across the border. kids, listen to me, don't take drugs. come here, raise your hand, raise your hand. raise it. raise your hand, no drugs, no alcohol, raise your hands, kids. "i promise donald j. trump -- kids: i promise donald j. trump -- mr. trump: "that i will never do drugs and, well, do a little bit of alcohol -- kids: that i will never do drugs, and, a 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. crowd: trump! trump! trump!
