  Donald Trump Campaigns in San Diego California  CSPAN  May 27, 2016 5:00pm-6:31pm EDT

5:00 pm
towards people. isinterest towards people. trump, there is a sense he is on your side. that is populist. way of he will have a swinging it to bring everyone together. i want to argue it would be good , and,e more mobility indeed, equality would follow. i call that socialist ends. the difference between the party is that trump's party once that wantnts that and the dems that. there are two ways to get there. one is by socialism and the other is by capitalism. we should get rid of the things preventing people. calvin is calling in from
5:01 pm
winston-salem, north carolina, independent line. caller: good morning. thank you for taking my call. when i hear the title of the cut -- "theay back, way back," it makes me think of how the country was founded. the exhortation of native americans. the african-americans who were brought here against their will. founded the capitalist system here. my point being that when i hear people talk about how trump is so popular, i say to myself, here is the economy of a capitalist. someone who uses immigrant labor to build his hotels and his chinese as well as manufacturers of many of his apparel goods -- ties and what have you -- yet the people who
5:02 pm
support him want to make america great again. it is interesting the demographic, some of it, that supports mr. trump are the total opposite of who he is, which falls into line with historically how america works. fdr was for the people. he was a democrat. he was an aristocrat. he came from theodore roosevelt. kennedy was a democrat for the people. he was an aristocrat. he came from kennedy the ambassador. ispoint is there doublespeak. talk about both sides of your mouth -- host: let's hear from frank buckley. guest: thank you. that is a lot to answer. a couple points. slavery is not capitalism. it is the opposite of capitalism. i am not on the side of slavery. indeed, there was that historical problem at the founding.
5:03 pm
as you probably know, slavery was essentially abolished in england by virtue of judicial decision in 1773. that, to my mind, was much more of a capitalist system. as for more current events, i do not want to talk about trump's hotels, if you do not mind, but i will say this about republicans and conservatives. and i think i am agreeing with you. what i want to say is much of what one thinks is noble in the republican party is kennedy liberalism. taxesy wanted to lower and was a supply-sider. republicans are he time hated it. rights, a lot of conservatives at the time were opposed to civil rights. it was liberal republicans who provided the crucial votes to get the 1964 bill passed. and kennedy democrats were a
5:04 pm
party of openness and provided the sense we would all rise. they were not the white shoe imagine theome republicans to be. i am probably agreeing and say yang that which i like in the republican party, in many ways, has its roots in jfk democrats. frank buckley, calvin kind of alluded to this, but your title, "the way
5:05 pm
5:06 pm
i used to say to people if we want to figure out what went wrong with america, we have to go back to a point in time where things were good. mr. buckley said he thinks it was the 50's. i say we have to go from that point forward and say what went wrong? how did we go off the track? you can talk about this for hours or days. to me it is all in education. there is no silver bullet.
5:07 pm
it can't be fixed overnight. it has to be a generation. what has got to be fixed is education. i read an article titled the education of minority children. it is brilliant. he points out how public schools are not the answer. he talked about the irish of the blacks in dunbar heytvelt. the point it it has to be about the education. the kids are going into schools they don't approve of. they don't see the kids getting a good education. so the kids have no hope and the parents have no hope. that is my one suggestion as to how to restore america again. it is not the only answer, but you have to have the right of parents to choose what school their child goes to.
5:08 pm
i am going to get that and put if put it on my facebook page. your point. guest: i will tell you a story. i grew up in western canada. i grew up in a french canadian town. i went to the public school, and it was like 99% french canadian. the teachers in the school were nuns and everybody though thought that was fine. there are historically reasons based in bigotry for parochial
5:09 pm
schools. what that would provide, and vouchers generally, and charter schools is needed competition. competition pulls up everybody. you don't see it working. you don't see the machinery. you don't see the gears. but to compete. to offer a different kind after school system, you have to be better than the other guy. then the other guy has to pull up his socks. that is why we are so absolutely terrible in k-12. when you look at how we rank compared to other countries, it is just dreadful. an economist at hoover calculated if we could magically raise our score levels to canadian levels, we could wipe out the national debt. it is that huge. the differences are big. if i could wave my magic wand, that would be the one thing i would do.
5:10 pm
i would take the bug of the department of education, $63 billion and block grant it to states that had block programs. and the department of education, i would tear it down and open up a hotel. host: go ahead, bill from pittsburgh. guest: good morning. when i called in, i thought this was going to be about income and equality. sir, i think i mostly agree with you, although i have about 50 nits i can pick with you. let's go back to that phrase that has disturbed me ever since it came up. the necessary implication of ying and talking about inequality, the money that goes to the "rich" does not go the poor or the middle-class.
5:11 pm
t is not the same money. people get paid through what comes in at the cash register. once you have accumulated something and you invest it, all of a sudden the investment situation in the world make it very easy to get a larger income. the question -- and it sounds like you would agree with me. the question is how to make what comes into the cash register more efficient in going to people's incomes. that is the statement and the thought, and i wonder if you give me a little bit? host: thank you, bill. guest: i appreciate that. let me say something that people find a a little surprising. if you want to promote more mobility equality, a natural
5:12 pm
thought would be let's fiddle with our welfare payments. what people don't realize is the american welfare system is incredibly generous. we would like to think the nordic countries are so much more generous. well, they really aren't. sweden is, but if you look at welfare payment as a% of g.d.p., only sweden is more generous than we have. we have 72 federal crams, a host of state, city programs and private charities. this is is a pretty good country to be poor in. the basic point is if what we want is more equality, we are not going to get there by somehow adjusting our welfare pay-outs in some way. rather, the issue is let's get more cash in the cash register, which is mostly a question of freeing up people so they can go out there and do their thing without having to worry about a
5:13 pm
mess of rules getting in the way there. is one shocking statistic produced by the institute for justice. licensing requirements. am a laura for my sins. you have to get qualified by a bar there. is a license required there and a license required for doctors. back 30 years, one in 20 americans had to get a license like that. now it is one in three. now we are talking about hair bradeners, masseuses. we are talking about a crazy bunch of requirements which don't do much protect a cartel of people in place. that excludes people from rising into getting their own business. is that problem. host: larry is calling in from california. you are on the line with frank buckley. guest: good morning, gentlemen. i wanted to say something quickly about get the government out of our lives.
5:14 pm
i spent 30 years working for the government, 20 in the marine corps. i think more people should be involved in government to keep an eye on what we are actually doing. on another subject, it seems like a lot of people are lost. i like mickey mantle and the old new york, a lot of jobs and things to do. during my time in the military i got in the computer field. i saw in the late 1980's that it-21, and d to people had to get educated. there were only a few things we could do because everything is compute rised. you have to get educated, get a certain and degrees. if we can do anything, we have to put money in the infrastructure. rebuild the internet. we are sitting on cables that were there from the eight 60's, early 70's, and now on the
5:15 pm
software side of the house we are on windows 10. they don't match up. that is why we get hacked all the time. .o biometrics e fix the education by putting schools on the internet and all schools follow the curriculum. as far as health care. get everybody in -- host: before we get through the whole list, let's get a response from mr. buckley. guest: larry, thank you. you are up pretty early there in california. i agree with you. there is a lot to be said for good we make the government more efficient than using some of that surplus in terms of rebuilding our infrastructure. there is is a whole laundry list you provided, and the way back would involve a whole laundry list. i will say one thing about all this, and that is i would never bet against the home team.
5:16 pm
making predictions about the future is a chump's game, but i would never bet against america. host: in a subchapter, the united states of crime, you rite about a gentleman named krister evertson. who is he? guest:'s gentleman caught up by some obscure rule of the environmental protection association and ended up in the mesh of the criminal justice system for years if a crime of which he was -- i won't say innocent -- but ignorant is the better term. the problem is we have almost an uncountable number of federal crimes that are crimes that don't require a guilty mind. why is a guilty mind so important? there is this thing called a conscience. if you do something bad, your conscience will twig you. but if the crime in question
5:17 pm
doesn't require a guilty mind, you won't know that you are doing it. plus, there are so many of these offenses that you can do it all the time. a book has been written called three felonies a day. it says as ordinary businessmen we could commit a bunch of crimes and never know about it. this is a barrier to entrepreneurs in particular. it is not a barrier if you are established and surrounded by lawyers. it is a barrier if you are the new guy. it discriminates against the up and coming guy, the guy without connections, the guy who has not made political contributions, those kinds of guys. i am on their side. host: keno, florida, go ahead with your question for frank buckley. host: yes. praise be for c-span and what it is doing for america. all other media is
5:18 pm
concentrating on emotional consideration for the election. but c-span tries to get the ectricity wal part of the -- electricity wal part of the brains involved. a month ago they had a book about how politicians stir up anger, which is is a bad part of the brain to make decisions. i want to recruit the professor to join me in asking the presidential candidates to list 5-10 books citizens should read so we understand the most serious problems facing the united states from an select wal -- sfwectwal standpoint. your book i hope is on one of the lists. t let's have an intellectual discussion. i have asked a bipartisan group in congress to use george mason as a venue to meet for your conflict resolution school.
5:19 pm
is that possible? guest: i am an hour it is. as far as my list of books, my book would be number one, two and three. host: what about the other book that was the buzz around here last year? guest: and you pronounced that right. he is a french fellow who wrote a book about how capitalism will eventually self-destruct because all the wealth will be concentrated in the uber rich, and everybody else will be impoverished. he doesn't have america's number is the short answer. he just doesn't get it. e are not like that. there are a number of other reasons why it doesn't work all that well. one reason is his analysis works if the uber rich just
5:20 pm
reinvest the money. but they spend it. they spend it, and they go through messy divorces, and ey spend it on bulbs -- on baubles. e footballer said he spent 10% on wine, women and song, and the rest he wasted. i love that. we are on the side of anna nicole smith, ok? host: steve tweets in to you i would rather go forward instead of going way back. guest: well, as i say, there were things in the 60's which weren't perfect, and we are before off in many respects with respect to african-americans, women and a whole bunch of things. i agree with that. we don't want to go back to the 50's. we would want, i would argue, recapture one part of the 50's, which is the spirit and the reality that we all can and
5:21 pm
will move up with industry and drive. that is the part of the 50's i like. guest: excellent question. you ask how many countries have our network capitalists in congress and the like, and the answer is none. nobody matches us. the people who were surprised by trump, they should have seen
5:22 pm
it coming because they should have looked at where we are with respect to the problem you mentioned, and they should have recognized we have been there before. we were there in 1776. when the framers, the founders of this country, looked at england, they looked at a country which was as free as they were, but they also looked at a country that was really, really corrupt. they had a sense of republican virtue that would be better than all of that. what we are doing right now is discovering that sense of a need for a special kind of virtue that washes away everything you just talked about, all the cronyism, all the special deals. it is a hard thing to do. there are barriers in constitutional law and the first amendment that we wouldn't want to trench on. but there are things we have to do, and we have to explore them. host: frank buckley, and you write about this in "the way
5:23 pm
back" government lone guarantees and picking winners and losers. can it be successful? guest: yes. in the sense that a clock is right twice a day, yes. we in general, 0 not, and -- but in general, no, and we all know this. host: why? guest: because of that network of patronage imdescribing. indras of this world that are terrible in their business but wonderful at making connections in this town. the thing about it is it was costing them more to produce their product than they were selling it for. where ike the old joke the guy in the cloth trade would tell his father we are ploozing money in every coat we sell, how do we do it?
5:24 pm
the father says it is easy, we ake it up in overhead. cylindra was about a $500 million lone guarantee. no, the government should not be picking winners and losers. they don't have skin in the game, but what they have is influence. jim is in royal oak, michigan. hi, jim. caller: thank you for taking my call. you referred back to the 50's. my son bought me a book that had the front page of the "new york times" going back 50 years. in 1957 there was a small article saying that our high school education was donald oing something we were going to college. otherwise, it wasn't doing anything for the rest.
5:25 pm
people now when they -- they go to high school -- i mean they are not qualified for another job. in germany, when you get out of high school, you are qualified for a technical job. we have been wasting billions, dollars on high school education, and it hasn't been doing anything for most of our people. so i would like you comment on that, thank you. guest: well, i agree with that, jim. i am not able to micromanage how things are taught in school, but we seem obviously to have moved away from teaching basic skills in math and english. and you are absolutely right about the need to teach work related skills as they do in countries like germany. what we have, however, is an educational bureaucracy, which resembles a soviet department
5:26 pm
store, which is how do we make life good around the department clerks, not the customers. i think one problem is exactly that. the political clout of the n.e.a., the teachers union, is a great cause of the problem. but you know what another problem is, too? i describe in my book a new class, a kind of aristocracy on the top of the heap, and these are people who are not ordinarily in form of educational reform. some of them are, but in general they aren't. they vote against it when given the chance to to so. it is no skin off their nose because they will send their kids to private school. -- ou are an airs cat aristocrat, you don't want other people to rise. if you are the bird of prey, you don't foul your own nest,
5:27 pm
but it is the nest of the other. host: what do you teach at george mason? guest: i teach a class on the framers. you know what was great about them? they were not theorists? they were good, smart, practical politicians, and they were deal-making, and it was exciting. we nearly split apart. we nearly became three countries. there were british spice there, and french spice. there was a deal made by guys that we have never heard of. james madison had a minor role. everything he proposed was shot down pretty much. it is a wonderful story. trump! ♪
5:28 pm
♪ >> oh, what a crowd. this is unbelievable. unbelievable! come here! [cheers and applause] cameras, turn over here. turn over here, cameras. you know they never want to show the crowds we get. this is a movement, folks. this is is a big, beautiful movement. [cheers and applause] and no other republican would say this, but we are going to play for california, and we are going to win california. you watch. you watch. obody else can get this.
5:29 pm
i want to thank everybody. amazing. and i want to thank sarah palin and all of the people who came here on our behalf and the speeches that 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. [cheers and applause] thank you. so yesterday we had a very big day. you saw that, right? 1237. we reached it. crooked hillary cannot put bernie away. we won over 17. we are going to go all the way. we are going to make america great again. it's going to happen, going to happen. i want to thank you very much. i love san diego. i love the people of san diego. i love our vets. where are our vets? [cheers and applause] we have vets for trump some place. who are the vets for trump?
5:30 pm
hi, carrie. who are the vets for trump? where are these guys? get them up here. we love our vets. come on up here, fellas. ome on up. good-looking guys. look at this guy. we have a lot of power here. crowd: u.s.a., u.s.a., u.s.a., .s.a.! >> wow. so i got a call from darrell a few weeks ago, long before
5:31 pm
people thought we would be winning this so quickly. he said donald, i endorse you 100%, and those are the people i remember. i like it. so darrell, thank you. where is darrell? i appreciate it. and duncan, thank you very much, right from the beginning. duncan. you had better vote for these guys forever. we are never letting them go. will tell you what, nobody like our vets, and we are going to cherish our vets. we are going to take care of our vets. now i am the only one this can happen to, but on tuesday we are announcing -- you know, when i skipped the speech with fox. i like fox, but they didn't treat me so well. i started a little thing to give a speech. a little before the speech i said maybe we can raise some money for the vets, right? so i said we will raise $500,000. then i said maybe we can do
5:32 pm
more, and we raised $1 million. then a couple of my friends chip in, stewart ross from las bill, and karl icon, ike, and these guys gave between $500,000 and $1 million. i said whoa, we are up to $3 million. maybe we will get it up to four, maybe five, maybe we will get it up to six. and we raised like more than $5.5 million for the vets. [cheers and applause] and i never got such bad public lis it in my life. it is unbelievable. so on monday or tuesday we are releasing -- we give to many, many groups, and it is pretty close to $6 million that we raised. it is for our vets, and we love our vets. there is nobody like our vets. we are going to take care of our vets. we are going to build our military, by the way, bigger,
5:33 pm
better and stronger than ever before. but a big part of that is we are going to take care of our vets for the first time in a long time. we love our vets. thank you very much, fellas. thank you. we appreciate it. and he is not a vet. thank you, everybody. thank you, darrell. thank you, duncan. we have a great vet, from world war ii. he looks like a young guy. they are all saying point him out. he is in the front row, and there he is. beautiful. thank you very much. fantastic.
5:34 pm
women pilots, that is what i like. thank you. so this has been amazing. this has been amazing. we just left fresno. we had a crowd that was just incredible. and really, we are going to win the state of california because ople are tired -- people are tired of the hillary clintons of the world. it is all talk. it is no action. it is crooked hillary. it is the same stuff. and our country cannot take another four years of obama. that is what you are going to be getting. just take a look at the t.s.a. take a look at what is going on in your airports. take a look at what is going on with our military that we love. we can't beat isis.
5:35 pm
we are going to beat isis. we are going to beat them quickly. we are going to knock the hell out of them. we shouldn't have been there in the first place burks we are going to knock the hell out of them, and we have to rebuild our country. we've spent $5 trillion in the meester,, and right now we have absolutely nothing for it. if we wouldn't have spent 10 cents, we would have been better off, believe me. we are going to rebuild our country. we are going to rebuild our military. we are going to take care of our needs, including our vets, and we are going to bring it back, folks. we are going to bring it back, and it is going to happen quickly. and we are going to build a wall. we are going to build a wall. build a ing to bmed -- wall. latinos for trump, i love you.
5:36 pm
audience: build the wall, build the wall, build the wall. >> thank you, thank you. oh, we are going to build it. and if we don't build it, i will get papa doug to put it up. he is your big guy in town. he is great, and he employs a lot of people. a lot of jobs, a alex rodriguez of education and health care, and we love him. thank you. we have had an exciting time. when i started this journey on june 16th, not so long ago, almost a year, hard to believe -- i have to say we have been on the cover of time magazine many, many times, and it is really about the movement. because we have created a movement. it is a movement to common sense, to smart. we are not going to be ripped off anymore. get them out of here. get them out. et them out.
5:37 pm
and somebody said, by the way, why are you going to san diego? why are you going to california? you already won the primaries. you don't have to go. i said very simply, because i said i was going to go, i have to be here, right? [cheers and applause] i love you. i love you. and i love san diego. i have so many friends in san diego. i love san diego. and i really like when they put up latinos for trump. [cheers and applause] we are going to do great with the latinos because i am bringing back jobs. the latinos, african-americans, we are doing great with african-americans. they want jobs. we are losing our jobs to everybody. we are being taken advantage of by the world. we are losing our jobs to everybody. we are going to bring back jobs like we haven't seen in this
5:38 pm
country for many, many decades. and people that aren't doing well, they are going to start doing very, very well, believe me. so on june 16th i came down the escalator with my wife, and i said wow, this is going to be -- i have never seen, outside of the academy awards, the kind of press. but look at what we have today. mostly live cameras. some of the most dishonest people in the universe. ome of the worst people. audience: boo! >> why don't you take those cameras and spin them around a little bit and show them? why don't you take them? spin them around. they don't want to do that, folks. they don't want to do it. that is why i love my protestors, because the only
5:39 pm
time and the only way they show how big our crowds are, the only time, is when there is is a protest. that is a negative thing, they think. but i love our protestors. so i came down the escalator, and i made a speech. and if you notice, that is my notes for the speech. we have to go free form. we don't want teleprompters, right? no teleprompters. we ought to have a law that if you are running for president, you are not allowed to use teleprompters. it is too easy. look what we got the last time? we got a teleprompter guy. we don't need that. so i started talking about illegal immigration, a tremendous problem. i don't think this would be a problem that would even be discussed, frankly, if we didn't do it and put it as part of our campaign. and we talked about bad trade,
5:40 pm
really bad trade. 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 or country, we lose. we don't win anymore. we are going to start winning. we are going to win with trade. we are going to win with our military. we are going to start winning again. [cheers and applause] w our president is right now -- audience: boo! >> you are right. it is pathetic. honestly, folks, we have leadership right now in this country, especially at the top, that is grossly incompetent. they don't know what the hell they are doing. they don't know what they are doing. hiroshima, japan in
5:41 pm
and that is fine. just as long as he doesn't apologize, it is absolutely fine. who cares? but he said today that our trading partners and countries that we have relationship with, they are rattled. they are rattled. i said yeah, that is so good. and a very, very powerful guy, a very great guy. i won't use his name, but most of you know. i saw him last week, knows everybody, highly respected. he said donald, i had no idea this was going to happen, but i am being called by all of these countries. germany, japan, saudi arabia. think about it. we defend these countries, and they don't pay us what they are supposed to be doing. germany, saudi arabia, japan, south korea, many areas. then you look at the nato countries, 28 total.
5:42 pm
many of them aren't living up to their obligations. we have common sense. we have business ability. what happens is this. he said i can't believe it. i didn't like your rhetoric. and i happen to be a nice person. i will get along so great with these countries. i will get along so great. what?u know they are our friends and allies, but they have been abusing us. this isn't 40 years ago. we owe $19 trillion. it is going up to $21 trillion because of the omnibus bug, which was not so good. that is the budget that allows people to come in from syria, people to cross the border, funds obama care, which we shouldn't have done. because we will terminate obama care and replace it, believe me, with something good. believe me. [cheers and applause]
5:43 pm
repeal and replace obama care. so this man said donald, i can't believe it. he is like the biggest of the big. he said i disagreed with your style. i really did. and yet now all of these countries are calling. how do we get along with trump? we think he is going to win. what do we do? how do we do it? they are not going to take advantage of us no more. we have had enough. no more. 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 she is a very boring speaker. nd i will not say because it is not politically correct, and it is not a nice thing so say, that she shutouts into the
5:44 pm
microphone, and it drives everybody crazy. so i won't say that. but i found it very hard to watch. and then she lies. i called somebody a liar, but i don't say that anymore because that person is now in the past. i say that person is in the past. and with hillary, we say crooked hillary. but i've got to add another word because i never saw anything like this last night. she was saying i want japan to arm with nuclear weapons. i never said that. she was saying i love the dictator in north korea. i don't love the dictator. bad guy, ok? bad guy. she was saying all sorts of things so bad and so false, total lies, and we are not going to let her get away with it. we are not going to let her get away. what i do say is this. we have tremendous deficits. we are losing a fortune. our jobs picture is terrible.
5:45 pm
don't believe 5%. the real number is at least 20%. when you look for a job, if people raised their hands. look at the size of this room. park packed to every corner. people on the polls love me on secure. there is nothing more important than our national security. they love me on certain things, but honestly, we wouldn't have crowds like this, and it is everywhere we go. we would not have crowds like this. they are as big as the room. and by the way, there are thousands of people outside who can't get in. ok? and it is not like -- it is friday afternoon. you could have been doing something else. the trump rallies, are they not the greatest? [cheers and applause] and by the way, the safest place to be in this country is at a trump rally. that i can tell you.
5:46 pm
and we are going to take care of everybody. not just the people in this room. not just what the people in this room represent, which is largely love, because it is love. but we are going to take care of everybody, including the people that don't know if they like the people in this room. we are going to unify our country. we are going to take care of the hispanics. we are going to get jobs. we are going to take care of the african-americans who are really suffering in this country. and hillary clinton will not do a thing for them. she doesn't want to. she could care less. so it has worked out beyond what we thought. we were supposed to be in july in cleveland fighting for our lives. i said what are you talking about? we are going to win on the first ballot. we are going to win on the first ballot, right? [cheers and applause] now i didn't know it was going
5:47 pm
to go this quickly. look at the cameras. they turned because they found a protestor. look at those cameras, those blood suckers. they found a protestor. think you protestier. thank -- thank you protester. thank you. get him out. get him out. [cheers and applause] get him the hell out of here. it is always funny. usually they are just singles. the mom kicked him out of the house for the week. but usually they are singles. and you can never hear them. but what you hear is my people going get him out. my people make so much noise. it is true. it's true. so let me just tell you. bernie sanders has been great. we like bernie. you know why i like him?
5:48 pm
he doesn't have a chance, and what he is doing to her is incredible. because the system is rigged against bernie. did you ever notice he wins, he wins, he wins, he wins. then you watch the pundits, the zphons ones. they sit around saying he can't win because the system is rigged. 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
5:49 pm
it. but i say it for a different reason. i started off, by the way, with -- loan and lone have a net worth of much more than $10 billion. i don't even want it. all i want to say is this is kind of thinking we need to straighten out this mess they have given us in our great country. his 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? [cheers and applause]
5:50 pm
so i end up with a lawsuit, and it ends up in san diego in federal court. it is a disgrace the way the federal court is acting, because it is a simple lawsuit. everybody that took the so-called course. trump university is in san diego. the trial, they wanted it to start while i am running for 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. he's a hater. gonzalo cuiial. and he is not doing the right thing. i figure what the hell? why not talk about it for two minutes. should i talk about it? yes? [cheers and applause] so we should have won. i am being railroaded. here is the story.
5:51 pm
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. 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.
5:52 pm
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.- by 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
5:53 pm
william gallo who truly hates us. the good news is it is a jair trial. we can even get a fuel jair. we are entitled to a jury, and we want a jury of 12 peer. first of all, it should be dismissed. watch how we win it was 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 are giving 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
5:54 pm
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 get all these jobs. i think they are going to love it. 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. 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 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
5:55 pm
case. the laura 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 is your vice from former students given trump university raven reviews. it is called, www .98percent 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
5:56 pm
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 adams against me? i had 66,000 negative adams, over $100 million in florida alone during the big primary, which i won in a landslide. we had 15,000 negative adams, and i won. i almost wonder what do adams mean? bob appeared in tv attack adams 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?
5:57 pm
now do 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
5:58 pm
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 he was 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 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. 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,
5:59 pm
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 . vember 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 anamed of himself. i think it is a disgrace he is doing this. i look forward to going before a jury, not this injury, 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.
6:00 pm
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
6:01 pm
cuts, save social security. we are going to bring back and save our medicare, which people want to cut. where going to knock out -- remember this, knock out common core. our educational system is a mess. [applause] mr. trump: we are going to knock out common core. 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. [applause] mr. trump: remember, remember. crooked hillary wants to abolish our second amendment. 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.
6:02 pm
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. newon everything but we won york big.
6:03 pm
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. would never 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? [cheers and applause] mr. trump: but isn't that what you want for your president? art we tired of this horrible stuff that we witness? every single thing we do, over budget, way behind schedule. we are going to change it. i'm building a hotel in pennsylvania avenue between the white house and the capitol building. the old post office. it is two years, but i like to say one year.
6:04 pm
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 all of their chairs. they said it will get done. they don't when i have 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.
6:05 pm
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. to see our roads coming in so far above bridget -- 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 country, 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.
6:06 pm
[cheers and applause] mr. trump: so what happened in indiana was amazing. we win all the states. new york, pennsylvania, rhode island, delaware, connecticut, maryland. and by the way, won every county 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 if you percent -- 50%. but he has won, 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.
6:07 pm
by millions. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: and we have 10 states left to go. 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 to 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 republican primary, they say, "his style of negotiation and the way he runs -- in the fact he did this and that." they say, "the republican party: -- " the republican party is coming
6:08 pm
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. 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. what you have got to go out and vote in two weeks anyway -- but 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
6:09 pm
-- 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? almost $6 vets million. i don't have to give them anything. i give a speech, 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. somethingebody -- where nobody even thinks about it. erases fantastic amount of money -- 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
6:10 pm
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. for you especially cannot run for president. 22 "washington post" has 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. put me, i could not care less. does not want to pay tax on the internet -- he does not want to pay tax on the internet. he will use that so they will not tax amazon on the internet.
6:11 pm
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. [applause] mr. trump: that is my great world war ii vet. the people looking at him don't realize he is tougher than all of us in this room. that i can say. [applause] mr. trump: i love to call these institutions out. no politician is going to do that because they care too much.
6:12 pm
too, whatto -- i care i care about doing the right thing. the "new york times" last week made a fool of themselves. a story on the front page on sunday. and massive story of me standing with beauty pageant contestants. then they interviewed 50 or 60 people. most of them said good things. saidew of them revolted 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.
6:13 pm
she was saying it was incorrect what they said. what they said was meant maliciously, and i like and respect to donald trump and he always treated me great and you should not write like that. and then i had a very fantastic who was a very successful member of the beauty pageants. i think 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 the 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.
6:14 pm
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! [applause] know, hillary is missing 30,000 e-mails. i have people that will retrieve those e-mails. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: i don't think they
6:15 pm
want to find those e-mails because what hillary has done is criminal, folks. let's get back to the "near times." --"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? somethingn the book 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." person, hea sexist is the greatest person."
6:16 pm
and then she is in the "new york times" saying i was a horrible person. 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. goodast somebody will say because i did not know carrie would say great after reading negative stuff. e would comeow roann out and say great after reading negative stuff. then i see this woman. no otherave her a job 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.
6:17 pm
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 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. what, theytell you 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.
6:18 pm
"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. 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," "washington post." most of the people. some of them are fine. not many, but some of them are fine. when so many 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. maybe youbarbara,
6:19 pm
should not be eating that piece of candy. [laughter] mr. trump: that is a little different than bill clinton, i think. [laughter] hererump: and she said -- is a woman that used the f bomb more than any other person i 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
6:20 pm
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? 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. g andou saw was this thu
6:21 pm
people burning the american flag and holding up flag some 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.
6:22 pm
he looked at this massive andence like this today 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. is unbelievable. there is love in the room. we want to take our country back. we are tired of reading the stupid people -- we are tired of being the stupid people all over the world. we are tired of it, and we are going to end it. chanting: "donald"] mr. trump: thank you.
6:23 pm
ending this way. we are unlike 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. televisionbe on live 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
6:24 pm
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. ndw many ways can you e something? somebody said "make america great again" is a negative statement. i said it is a as statement because we are going to make america great again. listen. we don't win anymore as a country. win we don'twin -- 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. [cheers and applause] mr. trump: we are going to win
6:25 pm
with our military. 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.
6:26 pm
we are winning too much. your 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. the are going to win -- we are going to win california. thank you, everybody.

>> donald trump campaigning in california ahead of the california primary on june 7. he is in san diego today. your opportunity to react to what you have heard from donald trump now, and your thoughts on the campaign in general. phone numbers on your screen. you can tweet us. also leave a comment, post to our facebook page. let's go right to your calls. kay his first up in new orleans
6:30 pm
on the democrats line. caller: i am calling to make a comment. i had an opportunity to listen to the speech and i have been following the campaign throughout. my opinion is donald trump is going to lose like barry goldwater lost. he is considered a crook, a fraud. he needs to present his tax returns. .e says nothing specific he mentioned the t.s.a. the t.s.a. is not functioning well because congress cut the budget. if he is going to mention something about why something is not working, he needs to tell the whole story. as far as our infrastructure goes, a lot of it has to do with congress. the president is not a dictator, and he cannot do anything without congressional approval. just like i said, he is going to lose big time. he can complain about hillary clinton and bernie sanders. he does not have a
