Key Capitol Hill Hearings CSPAN June 1, 2016 1:58am-2:11am EDT
here's the story. i've been dealing with the press a long time. press --he political mr. trump: here's the story. i've been dealing with the press for a long time. i think the political press is among the most dishonest people i've ever met. i have to tell you that come ok. of course you are excluded, carl. you're in the middle. i think the political press -- i see the stories. i see the way they are couched. for instance, i went down this weekend to do rolling thunder. i was invited. i didn't have anything to do with it. we had a tremendous gathering of people. thousands of people. i joked that we would go from the jefferson memorial to the lincoln. i was joking. they said donald trump was disappointed. everybody knew i was joking. they said trump was very disappointed by the crowd. -- that it didn't go from jefferson to lincoln. millions of people. i was joking. they put it down a serious. they know i was joking.
i'll give you another example. we had a -- the same event. it was roped off where you can only get so many people in there. there were a lot of people. i do know, 10,000, 50,000, maybe 25,000 people. they were people breaking the seams. gene washington, a man i like, one article that said they were 5000 people, there were many times that. and you weren't allowed to have any more people. all these people with their motorcycles in parking lots and they were waiting for me as i'm going by. but wait a minute. the point is law enforcement didn't allow you to have any more people. i had a tremendous crowd that was the biggest crowd you could have had. because it was all cordoned off. you weren't allowed to have more. you are not have any more people than they had. so instead of saying trump made a speech in front of a packed crowd, they said trump made a speech and he was disappointed because i didn't have millions of people going from jefferson to washington. give me a break.
give me a break. it is dishonesty. this is why the veterans believe. this is a group i gave money to. he just showed up i just saw him. i could've asked all these groups to come. i didn't want to do that. i am not looking for credit. what i don't want is when i raise millions of dollars to have people say, like this sleazy guy right over here from abc. he's a sleaze. you know the facts and you know the facts well. >> thank you mr. trump. i'm a state representive from new hampshire. 22 years in the marine corps. what i want to clarify is that i would never in a million years put my name on the candidate who did not look me in the eye and tell me he was concerned about
veterans. that's donald trump. i met him over a year ago. i get involved with many fundraisers. there are many scam artists out there. if you look at some of these groups you give them $.20 $.40 on the dollar and they take nice lavish trips. he gave 100%. the liberal media is the only ones who've been calling the foundations. i've been dealing with this stuff for years. stop using veterans as political pawns. you've got a guy outside, mccoy, do a google search on his facebook. he's out there working for clinton. they are using veterans as political pawns. donald trump is doing this for the heart. you are all focused on the way he's raising money and you're not looking at the 22 veterans are killing themselves every day. the thousands of veterans that are on wait lists.
look at his plan on his website. trump talks about medical costs. he talks about fixing the v.a.. he talks about competition. i've been dealing with the liberal media for a long time. get your head out of your butt! focus on the real issues. thank you. donald trump: i've gotten to know a little bit from new hampshire we had great victories. he showed up this morning because he was upset and many of the other groups are very upset. they received a hundred thousand dollars in the mail they didn't even know what was for. it was from a, heartfelt letters. the bad part about it the
dishonesty of the media is that people like me will be inclined not to do it anymore. why should you raise $5.6 million and i think we will go over 6 million pretty easily will be said that we started this out as a small project. less than a million dollars. it just kept mushrooming and building. but nobody talks about that. we raised $5.6 million we had so many happy groups and happy veterans and i see these guys, these hillary clinton people outside. they don't know the extent. they probably figured based on reading the press that donald trump didn't raise this kind of money. but we raised a lot. i will be raising more. and i will be sending it to other people as we go along. it's a company process.
the government approves different groups for a lot of reasons. is also speaking to other veterans. i don't want to send a $250,000 check to a group that we don't know about. it's called vetting. it is bothersome because i love the veterans. i worked hard for them. as you can see i've given a lot of money and raised a lot of money for them. i think when the press portrays it differently the press is being very dishonest. i don't like dishonesty. jeff sessions. he is a fantastic man. he is one of the most highly
respected people in the united states senate. jeff sessions is a person that i believe ted cruz has the most respect for. i think ted cruz thought he would get an endorsement from him. jeff sessions had never endorsed a presidential candidate before. he is somebody that i would consider. he is a fantastic person. >> animal activists are outraged that they killed this gorilla. >> donald trump: it is a very tough call. there were moments where the gorilla was holding the child and it was like a mother holding a baby. there were moments where it looked pretty dangerous. i don't think they had a choice. probably didn't have a choice. you have a young child in
danger. it's too bad there wasn't another way. i thought it was so beautiful to watch that powerful, almost 500 pound gorilla the way he helped with that little boy. it just takes one second. it just takes one little flick of his finger and i will tell you they probably had no choice. i'm in favor of fixing the v.a. health care. that is one of the great catastrophes in this country. look at what is happening in phoenix in different places throughout the country where they are catching people stealing from it. people are waiting five days or six days online. they are dying while they wait on line. i'm in favor of if they can't get to a doctor within a reasonable period
of time they're going to go see a doctor and the country is going to pay for it. they can go to a private doctor or a public hospital but someplace they can take care of them immediately. we are losing thousands of people waiting on lines for health care. veterans administration is run by obama just as incompetently as he is running our country. look at the tsa at the airports. look at that. just take a look at that. that is like the veterans administration. nothing in our country works anymore. it is a mess. and that's why i am doing so well in the polls. it doesn't have to be privatization. what has to be is when somebody is online and they say the seven-day wade that person is going to walk over across the street to a private doctor who will take care of him and the government will pay the bill. that will be a lot less expensive. that's going to be a lot less expensive than once going on now. these people are living in hell. hillary clinton said the veterans administration is
working just fine. at the head of it, macdonald, he said waiting in line is not bad it's like disney world. these are the kind of people we have running things. that is their choice. you have a party called the democrats they are going to have to make that choice. i think it is probably going to be her because it is rigged. a few people will say i came up with the term rigged. i used it for myself except i won by such big margins. the whole system is rigged on both sides. same with the republicans, just not as obvious. the democrats with their superdelegates is ridiculous.
they are going to have to make that determination. if you're asking me who i would prefer to run against. i think what she did was very bad. a lot of people have done a lot less than her and their lives were destroyed. >> a lot of questions about trump university. donald trump: the judge has been very unfair, he's done a very bad job. i will win the trump university case. i am already doing it as far as i'm concerned. i don't care. why antagonize him? i have a judge who is very unfair and you will see it in court documents. the judge is very very unfair. he knows it's unfair. i will win the trump university
case. i could settle the case. i could've settled it. i choose not to. when i ran they said why didn't you settle the case? i am a man of principle. most of the people that took those courses have letters saying they felt it was great. when they are on the stand and you say how come you signed a letter saying the trump university was so good. the woman that was the original plaintiff in the case, they went to the court and the judge allowed her to get out of the case. the case should have been dropped at that point. they wanted her dismissed from the case. you know why? she was deposed. she was such a bad witness that we would win the case easily. she is on tape saying unbelievably good things about trump university. they didn't want her anymore because she is a disaster for them. they went to the judge and they
