2:16 pm
with the republican leadership initiative for the campaign initiative tweeted out this. this morning, we talked to journalists who have written a biography of donald trump. washington journal continues. next hour, a conversation with the co-authors of the washington post book titled "trump revealed: an american journey of ambition, ego, money, and power," an and joining us now the table is marc fisher and michael kranish. what kind of reaction did you get from donald trump? guest: for this book, donald trump was gracious with this time. he spent 20 hours with a team of reporters doing interviews. the day before the book came out he tweeted, don't buy the book, it is boring.
2:17 pm
he cannot have read it because he did not receive a copy. people will see this is a thorough biography. let me beginsher, where you begin, his life story. he knew how to be famous, he knew how to win numbers, to get ratings. he made a lifelong study of how to create buzz. let's was one level up from flash. can you explain? guest: he has a hierarchy of reaction he can get from the media and he has made a lifelong study of manipulating the media and using the media. he learned at a early age that all publicity is good publicity and he genuinely believes that getting his name out there in all of these different ways through his entire life, from being seen with the prettiest models and celebrities in the 1970's although we up to his rallies today with lots of
2:18 pm
stocks on saturday night live what he didania -- with that is the idea of donald trump as a brand and image. someone that people could aspire to be like. he did this very thoughtfully. you write just as he did at school, donald trump rebelled against the rules. arguing with his father. nonetheless, fred told his son he was a king. host: -- he was giventher, the award for coming up from modest means and becoming a big success. and what he told him was that you have to do what you love
2:19 pm
orals you will be a nothing. throughout his life, donald trump has tried to live up to his father's admonition to be something big. host: that explains the from the book. "though a creature of his father's business and a and forary, he year something more. his father's outer borough empire -- donald trump wrote, it was not a world i found attractive." aest: fred trump was successful builder. donald trump saw this as not reaching for the sky. not reaching for the oppression on of the business. going into manhattan and the toughest real estate market in the country and being around all -- wealthythy will people. he wanted the challenge of
2:20 pm
taking on the world. so he loved his father and what his father taught him about the business but he wanted something more. he thought of his father as not quite having the killer ambition that donald trump found in the mentor and in the exciting society of manhattan in the 1970's. host: his dad did not understand that early on? guest: his dad had a philosophy of building study and doing things as cheaply as possible and he advised his son not to go to manhattan. and his son did go to manhattan. he advised his son, don't go into debt and his son proclaimed he is the king of debt. guest: this is a foundational story for donald trump. donald trump and fred trump were running a company in queens, there are this -- their office was a modest place. they had thousands of apartments
2:21 pm
they rented. when daily pursuit for racial bias. they were not renting to blacks. decideald trump had to whether he would settle the case or fight. boy: advise donald trump -- thet settle, fight government. when they hit you, hit back 10 times harder. so he was a very important advisor and they did eventually settle the suit against the government but it was important to understand donald trump's arc that he kept this philosophy -- when you are hit, hit back harder. host: two more sections from the book. you write "donald trump built his rotation selling real estate but the thing he had always wanted to sell was donald trump. his career would finally make trump into a household brand."
2:22 pm
guest: this was an interesting transformation from the real estate developer role, holding buildings in new york city and around the country to realizing that he didn't need to put up his own money. he didn't need to finance projects. he could make a lot of money simply by selling and franchising his name. of hisecent years, most projects in the united states and around the world have been cases in which donald trump has rented out his name for a guaranteed annual income that he perceived, whether those projects received or not. likent reporters to places panama who look at some of the donald trump projects that are not donald trump projects. other people put up the money. other people create these buildings and golf courses and donald trump rents his name.
2:23 pm
get if the building doesn't off the ground, he has a guaranteed stream of income. much more secure than the type of risk that a developer takes as he did earlier in the career. host: you write about the letter that donald trump received from he had beenn, how eyed as a potential politician, about his visit to new hampshire in the 1980's when he was talked about. in 1980n you write -- " seven, trump declined the democrats invitation to raise money. prominent republicans continue to court him as a donor, donald trump reveled in the curiosity about his ambitions and emerging political profile." guest: that's right. chapter 16 is titled "political chameleon." donald trump changed party affiliations seven times. republican, independent, reform party, and change positions on abortion,
2:24 pm
immigration, taxes. he hadn't seen himself as a member of one party or the other. he sees himself as a business person who has tried to court politicians who would be helpful to him in getting tax breaks. he has seen himself as an outsider and what that has meant is that he is not on a uniform track. we asked him about this. , what do you say to potential voters who say, what are your core beliefs, since you have change positions so many times, and he didn't push back and found his desk with his best and say, of course they have wase beliefs -- instead, he a business person and he needed friends and that was the way i viewed it. host: i want to share with you, this is a brief interview we did in february of this year in new hampshire on the weekend before the new hampshire primary.
2:25 pm
just want to share with you what we saw. we are going to change and renegotiate our trade deals and you are talking about tremendous numbers of hundreds of billions of dollars. with that i have thousands of people back here and i have to go. host: what would your father think of this? would be very proud. he was a great guy who had a lot of confidence in may. host: what has this experience been like for me -- for you? >> amazing. i've always been a businessman and a builder and a jobs producer. host: are you willing to spend what it takes to win? >> unlimited. host: have you been in the white house before? >> 25 times. host: how would you change washington? >> i will change it by getting the greatest people in this country, the greatest people in
2:26 pm
the world, to help me run the country. host: we show that interview because it gives you a sense of how he is focused on the questions but also the crowd waiting for him he kept referring to them during the course of a five minute conversation. guest: he has an uncanny knack for reading a crowd. of his genius performance in the primary season was his ability to those liveh settings. he feeds off the crowd. he obviously has a big ego. crowds.d by the kind of awkward sometimes to see him in the more constricted settings like reading off a teleprompter. he doesn't look comfortable there. donald trump truly believes he is best when he is going from his gut and instinct. he is not much of a reader. he is not one to study issues. he is skeptical of things like reports and briefings.
2:27 pm
he wants to learn about issues by hearing a quick summary from someone and then making his own decision on the spot from his gut. marc fisher, senior editor for the washington post and michael kranish, part of the team to put together this new book, "trump revealed: an american journey of ambition, ego, money, and power." cassie is joining us from colorado. good morning. caller: good morning. thank you for taking my call. i had a couple of things -- first off, i think our nation, as a whole, should take a strong the mobile labs on computers and we should update our capitalistic government to puts us into the space age. a terribly cold, calculating, everything has its price. i always have. within that, you have people
2:28 pm
limiting a president to a total of eight years to get elected, get used to the country and have them get used to them and then start different programs, which president obama did and with great skill. i'm a big fan of his. but then, at the end of eight years, obamacare has glitches. it has problems that it needs to work out. he can't do that if he is kicked out. after eight years. you need time to be able to put those into practice and say, this works and that doesn't. throw out what doesn't work. host: so you're saying it is time to change the constitution? caller: well, for an update. do -- if we are not changing, we are dead. host: let me take her point a
2:29 pm
step or there. donald trump says he will fundamentally change washington. we have heard that from jimmy carter, ronald reagan, bill clinton and barack obama. caller: washington is broken. most people would say this. the nation is divided. so i think a lot of people are looking for an outsider to come .n and change the experience you need the cooperation of congress. here's a man who is obviously not liked by democrats and by a a lot of the members of his own party. he calls himself a deal maker but he has turned off a number of people he would need to make deals with, including paul ryan. so to get things done he needs to work with those folks and that remains to be seen, as to whether he can have a big victory. host: these are two photographs. you talk a trump and his second wife. he has reportedly said he was
2:30 pm
bored with his second wife when she was walking down the aisle. that after two failed marriages, he appeared to a found a partner who will filled his long-standing desire for a no maintenance woman who did not generate headlines or seek to upstage him. donald trump, especially with his first wife, had someone who was his match in beauty and brains. was a he actually business partner. he put her in charge of one of his casinos in atlantic city and later at the plaza hotel. he came to regret those decisions. tooame to feel there was much competition going on within the marriage. he questioned her management skills and decisions and he resolved after that to have future relationships be with women who would not be a challenge to him or competition to him in business. and his third wife, melania, has
2:31 pm
a very separate business life and is more of a homemaker and business person. but donald trump's view of women is controversial. a number of people around the country see him as insulting or offensive to women. he contends that he has promoted women to the very top of his business throughout his career and certainly, at least one of theexecutives was one of first women to run a major construction project in new york city. so he has done that. but when it comes to his wives, he wants a more traditional wife like his mother. host: could you make the argument that his daughter, he is on the trump, in the same mold of donald trump in terms of a business empire? guest: no question that he is close to his children and he takes great pride in to what they have done. when we interviewed him, his children came in, we don't know if that was something stage for our benefit or they just happened to be there but you could see there was closest
2:32 pm
there. coming in and talking about going to florida where they have a golf course in development and she was going to talk about that. they had a very nice conversation back and forth that we were able to observe. you mention the marriages and reminded me, in the book, on we quote donald trump talking about the day he got married to marla maples -- he said, i was bored which he was walking down the aisle. pontificator's. we are trying to go in and write a full story that tells the donald trump story. inks donald trump has said over the years to fill in gaps. so that gives you insight into his thinking. he then divorced her and married melania. they have a young son. but that is part of the full story.
2:33 pm
understanding his relationship with women is understanding the story of donald trump. guest: and the interesting connection between his attitude towards marriages and his attitude towards politics. faceted --he is most most fascinated and he is at his best when he is pursuing the hunt. he says, when he gets things, he is not so interested in them. are michaelests kranish and marc fisher, the co-authors of the new washington post project, "trump revealed: an american journey of ambition, ego, money, and power." we will be covering the events as part of c-span2's book coverage. caller: good morning. perfect persona that we need for president. ,omebody to go out here and say let's build something. let's do something. instead of the trash that we have had for eight years.
2:34 pm
this failed obamacare. the throw the police under the bus -- why don't you write a really nasty look about the eight years of destruction that 722-year-old, have lived. the news every day on donald trump and hillary clinton. and i want to tell you. she is absolutely the worst person. host: marc fisher? guest: well, we set out not to write a nasty book about anyone. we set out to write a book about who donald trump is and how his values and pencils were formed. why he believes what he does and so whether you think he is the greatest thing since sliced bread or a menace to society, i think what american voters need is a comprehensive look at the
2:35 pm
life. the first person since dwight eisenhower to run for president as a major party candidate without previously having held elective office. so he is not being vetted in the same way candidates usually are. have a lotoliticians written about their lives at every stage in their career and that is not happening to donald trump so that is what we sought to do. caller: good morning. you know, i am the latest appointed in the degradation of the quality of your programming with these two fellows on here. this is really nonsense. what are they, psychiatrist? trying to do psychoanalysis of donald trump? i'm going to vote for donald trump. the clinton foundation -- look
2:36 pm
at her husband. what do i care that he has been divorced several times? a nice-looking guy with big money is going to do that. so this whole thing is nonsensical. these two guys wrote this book to make money and attacked donald trump? to try to influence the election? opinion and imy am disappointed in c-span. it set of talking about the bring on these two fellows. it is really disappointing. michael they are here at our invitation and we are talking about the book because it is a newly released publication. looking at the full life of donald trump and it works because you weigh in and share your calls and express your point of view and that is what we are all about. so thank you for the call. guest: we appreciate the call.
2:37 pm
we understand the behavior that is out there about what is going on in the country. this was done at the washington post -- it is a very evenhanded job. the effort here is to try to understand the rise of donald trump and the stagnation of the economy has led to that. talking about the president, it is important to know personal writing aand biography helps you to understand who the person is and how they have done things in the past. see you can dig a list of campaign proposals but you need to understand what they have done throughout their life. host: and this weekend on c-span's two as part of booktv, we sat down yesterday in an interview with ann coulter who is out with her own book on donald trump. she did sit down with tucker carlson, the editor in chief of the daily caller and a host on the fox news channel. here is a portion.
2:38 pm
trump sodonald loathsome, it is his opposition to immigration. if you narrow down what makes is hisealing it opposition to immigration. is the greatn unifier. >> factoring in the fact you just wrote a book on immigration, do you think there is evidence of this? the exit polls do not tell us that. when they say that, i look at what people do say is their number one issue. all of these things like jobs, terrorism. cultural changes. they are synonyms for immigration. americans are nice people. the cents, with the media telling them this, if they
2:39 pm
say it is immigration, it is as if they are saying something mean about immigrants. we like immigrants. hispanics.p loves that is my favorite tweet. >> you like the taco bowl treat -- tweets. her interview will air this weekend. our afterwords interview. you can check out the schedule at there are a lot of books on the market that are pro-or anti-donald trump rants. 's is very much a pro book. we try to not take a side or look at the major themes in a candidate's life.
2:40 pm
that is what is most useful. you choose someone not because of their views on immigration, but based on how they make decisions, how they taken information, how they way what what to how they weigh do. how do you absorb information and pick what side is right. he does not like to read long reports and briefings. he prefers people come in, talk and tell him the merits or do of an issue and he will a decision from his gut. he thinks he can bring that to the white house. in 2008, thevoter, donald trump voter in 2016. what did you learn? what they were looking
2:41 pm
for in a president, a number of people kept telling me they voted for barack obama in 2008 are now supporting donald trump. spring to mind an obvious pattern, so i worked on the story. it was published about the obama trump voters. they are the hope and change voters. by thewho were drawn in idea that barack obama was going to change washington, bring people together, and the charisma that barack obama and donald trump brought to their campaign. a lot of those people feel burned by the presidency. them are regretful about their votes for barack obama. these are guys who wanted to
2:42 pm
come in from the outside and change washington. they are frustrated about the paralysis. host: improbable did not begin to describe what donald trump began to achieve. angry outsiders had run for president before, but donald trump was going to be crowned at the republican nominee. over the years, there have been third-party candidates who have made a big impact. in. perot came he was impact full in the 1992 race. ralph nader in 2000 might have bushnough votes to force w -- to force george w. bush. donald trump was able to tap into that same view. we have had a reform party, a tea party. there is no third party.
2:43 pm
we have the libertarian candidate who could make an impact in this race. party, he republican is not a natural fit. he wants to be an independent third-party person. he is within that party. that is the reason you see some of the pleasant poll within the party. to walk thattrying fine line. he does want the base, but he wants to go beyond the base. is carriedprogram live on c-span radio. we welcome our guests. us from saintng augustine, florida. caller: i would like to ask you what you think about the blurred line between celebrity and politics. i bring to mind john kennedy. for more than 50 years, the
2:44 pm
kennedy family has been on our consciousness. passed away orve had failed lives. we still elevate them to the point of a king or queen because they were glamorous, months like elania. like trump and mala value to know the true live by.iticians what the past behavior was, what they really believe, rather than what the media and television is trying to show us. you ask a really important question. the whole question of celebrity is one that donald trump has thought about for many years. we get into the evolution of him as a showman. it is not an insult or something we are laying on him. this is the way he describes
2:45 pm
himself. he went about creating this public character. there was a rhyme and reason to that kind of production of a public care of he was trying to as a cartoon character the tabloid reports about his marriages and break of he was trying to transform that. chose to do the reality tv show. it would create this idea of donald trump as a man people were drawn to and they would see him as a tough, decisive leader.
2:46 pm
he created the sense of someone who is humane. he came -- he became famous for the line you're fired. shows some humility. he listens to his advisers. he changes his mind when they have something persuasive to say. celebrity helped pave the way for this run. , the candidacy of donald trump would not have been possible without "the apprentice." to the lady that talked about president obama, why do republicans forget what bush did before president obama? you skip that over. how do these veterans vote for this guy who had 45 deferments
2:47 pm
because of bone spurs. you veterans vote for him? you veterans back him up. 45 deferments he did not have to go to. all of the bone spurs, you republicans, you veterans back this guy up. he had four or five deferments and sent you to die and to watch your buddies die. you sit up with your hats on. host: you can sense the passion
2:48 pm
in these voters. guest: i covered the john kerry campaign. campaign, a lot of people said yes, he served, but he left early. here is a candidate who did serve and people will criticize that. the caller said about deferments, donald trump went to a military academy. he did not volunteer to serve in the military. which got himurs out of potential military service. the comments donald trump made like john mccain, i don't people who got captured as prisoners of war, that is very controversial. his aides were surprised. was not something planned ahead of time. he is trying to walk around that.
2:49 pm
members of the same party. this is the position the party finds itself. the presidential nominee starts attacking leaders of their own party. that has been an incredible story of this got the, donald trump nomination and to go back to your point, the rules do not seem to apply to him. regardless of what happens in 2016, what happened in 2020? even before he was on scene, a gradual but clear decline. people have less and less of a sense of ideological detachment and. he of ideology. -- ideology of call --
2:50 pm
ideological detachment and -- of ideology. he presents himself as a dealmaker willing to talk to anyone willing to go in any direction to get to the bottom line. is key to his success. from caller: las vegas, joey. what donald trump accomplished, if he was president, when they brought that bill about the big , it winds up costing taxpayers $24 billion. when they had that $50 million bridge to know -- to nowhere in alaska, that was -- that would
2:51 pm
have been left off the desk. look at the money i saved in two seconds. you understand? these people don't know what they are doing. it is sad. guest: it is interesting you mention the big dig. trump came to the attention of many people in new york city back in the early 1980's, when he came in to save the day. government had failed repeatedly, spent millions of dollars trying to repair an ice skating rink.
2:52 pm
donald trump came forward with a plan where he would pay for and fix this link in record time, under budget, or he would cover the whole cost. he came through. he built it in a matter of weeks and did it for less than he had said he would. he is someone who believes he can cut through the bureaucracy and red tape. as employees, he has hired thousands of employees over the years. a lot of times, when he has been in financial trouble, and has had corporate bankruptcies, the people who lose out are the employees, the vendors,
2:53 pm
contractors, the people who end up being stiffed. guest: one of the points the caller was making was the spending. he was able to get tens of millions of dollars in tax breaks. donald trumpdonald trump is benm things the government has granted him. he has talked about the need to rebuild infrastructure. know if he said specifically this is how i am going to take money from x to y. calling jeb bush sleepy and tired, lying ted, going took hillary clinton, this place with rachel maddow.
2:54 pm
it is an interview that was conducted. hillaryhe issue of clinton's health. guest: he likes to think of himself as a provocateur. he likes to tap into that and win a big reaction. coarse language , heinflammatory language learned in the 1970's and 1980's, that the way to get that kind of attention was to be inflammatory. he sees that as a way to get attention and build his brand. and localearly
2:55 pm
supporter of the birther movement. in his typical fashion, donald believes you do not explain or apologize, you just push forward. clip] , the letter is absurd. we contacted the doctor to get background. he was using a medical credential on his name that he is no longer entitled to use. for one, a gastroenterologist is an internal specialist. as the campaign manager, can i
2:56 pm
make a request to you, that we get a more substantial medical statement. the request.sed on i was told by an anchor that hillary's doctors had to release part of her medical history. i look at hillary clinton not being out there more as a strategy. it is scarcity as a strategy. people are reminded that she americanhe 70% of the spread she is a person who has i cannot imagine what comes after the but. host: there is a seed of doubt that dashes down on hillary
2:57 pm
clinton's health. guest: the full medical record from donald trump has not been released. those kind of questions are asked and you don't want to just let it lay there, the campaign will push back. you turn your focus to the sides. aten times a can sain is daily effort to throw things against the wall and see what sticks area this has gotten a lot of play. reduced moreon has records on her medical background been donald trump, her taxhas released returns. hillary clinton will say, where
2:58 pm
are your tax returns? a poker see this become game as we move on here. i am not going to vote for either one of these people. i am so upset with what we have to vote for. we have a generation that cut their teeth on talk radio. cable news of hate and anger. this is how we wind up with the people we have running today. said if he wasce to run for president, he would run as a republican. we got hillary. she is the one who first started issue withr president obama and found out there was nothing to it. she handed it off to the republicans.
2:59 pm
they pounded it until people started believing it. there was nothing to it. there are still people that believe his mother went to kenya or what ever and had him. it could go back to him going to school and find out he has been here all these years. he has a birth announcement that he was born in hawaii and it was the hospital that put that out. they are still arguing. there are stupid people holding onto this and will believe it. years, -- we have some crazies running today. what's clear about the campaign is that both of these candidates are deeply unpopular. it is hard to think of another race we have had where the two or asparty candidates
3:00 pm
unpopular as hillary clinton and donald trump are. there are in norman's differences between them in terms of policy and their personality background, the way they think about power. people are being forced to cross overcome their doubts about the candidates and make a choice based on those other factors, who are they, where do they come from, what are their true beliefs? she has a clear set of principles and values and positions on issues she has laid out in excruciating detail. in donald trump, we have someone who is vague on policy but is all out there as a personality. is give you a do
3:01 pm
sense, from his own voice and our interviews with donald trump and interviews with those around today, ofhe way up to who this man is, how he makes decisions, why is he running for president? find is a sense of where he came from and why he is running and what makes him tick. >> this review in the washington post. a portrait of a sad donald trump. a new biography reveals a troubling portrait of donald trump. the new biography offers a complex look at the man who would be president. are fair reviews.
3:02 pm
we are trying to provide a fair portrait of a complicated figure. they are not a straight line. they are a series of contradictions. if you go back to the founding of this country and you look at the people who have run for president, they are complex figures. thomas jefferson, who wrote all men are created equal, you can go back to the beginning and say we have to understand these are complicated figures. to understand how they come to these conclusions. see with, what we donald trump is a man who is pivoted throughout his life, changed positions many times. he talked about not wanting to pivot. he said he might soften his stance on immigration. like he ist sounds
3:03 pm
doing what he does a lot of. is this your photograph from the cover of the book? >> this is what we got from a photo agency. host: go ahead, marcia. the book.want to read i interested in finding out who is the real donald trump. he is pivoting back-and-forth on different issues. this will give him some type of character. -- he is ai can only promoter more than anything. he stirs the pot. the only figure i could think of king, in boxing, when he
3:04 pm
was a promoter. host: he was at the republican convention in cleveland. brought up the allegations he is fermenting racism or has said things that are racially of unzip. i told mr. trump about a cab the driver said i agree with mr. trump on a lot of things and would support him, peopleis against racially or ethnically. donald trump said i am the least racist person in the world. that donut a newspaper king publishes in ohio in which don king supported donald trump. this was his idea of how to defend himself against this
3:05 pm
charge. there is this question of racial insensitivity that boils down to donald trump being in the world view of the. period when he grew up in the 1960's. he thinks of himself as the least racist person in the world. she and the conservatives winning in 1979. at an event in jackson, andissippi, antiestablishment vote. let's watch what he said. [video clip] >> i would not vote for hillary clinton if you paid me.
3:06 pm
[applause] i would not vote for hillary clinton if she paid me. [applause] the message is clear. the parallels are there. there are millions of ordinary americans who have been let down, who have had a bad time. who feel so many of their parts of thees are liberal media elite. they feel people are not standing up for them and they had given up on the whole electoral process. you have a fantastic opportunity here with this campaign. you can go out and beat the pollsters and the commentators, you can beat washington.
3:07 pm
you will do it by doing what we did for brexit in britain. whoad our people's armie went to meet people, where they work and where they socialized. they inspired people to go out. vote for change. my advice to you >> are you ready? oh, come on. are you ready? there you go. that is more like it. hello. people often refer to me as the other hillary.
3:08 pm
imagine that. positive thatf you can be mayors and now president. yet a -- yay! future mayors, future presidents. i am truly nonpartisan. many of you may not know that but i am. in the last election, i voted for democrats and republicans. you also may not know that i had the honor to sit with secretary clinton for about an hour several months ago when she came to the city. i heard upu you you said yes. and i was so proud of how much she knew and how proud she is of our a kabul schmitz. [applause] -- of our accomplishments. [applause] downtown, south of town. all of the incredible work we are doing.
3:09 pm
she was to help us continue that momentum with better paying jobs, equality for all, technology, advancement in manufacturing. and schools, exactly. education is so important. i believe reno will have a true friend in the white house. am i right? look at this gentleman. look at this gentleman here at a beautiful smile. yes. nice job. to tell you that i've had time to study the candidates very carefully and secretary clinton comes extremely prepared and trust me, there is no better consensus told her. i see democrats, i see republicans, and i see independence. -- independents. that tells me she is a true consensus builder. give it up. [applause] also have to tell you i
3:10 pm
cannot stand appear and vote for a tv reality star who is clearly not living in reality. [applause] but let me say this. one thing i love about secretary bringn, and go ahead and it on, donald trump, she turns haters into elevators. so are you ready, reno? [applause] are you ready? i want to hear it loud and proud. we are stronger together, are we not? we are. so it is my pleasure and honor from oneuce to you, hillary to another, the next president of the united states of america, secretary hillary rodham clinton. applause]d
3:11 pm
please welcome her. we are not a battleground, we are a better ground. ms. clinton: yes, i love that. thank you. [cheers and applause] ms. clinton: thank you so much. i am so thrilled to be back in reno. thank you. i have to say i know when i am here in reno, i am the other hillary. moreover -- more than ok with that because i think your mayor is doing it today --
3:12 pm
terrific job. the fact that she herself is a small businesswoman, committed to really lifting up reno and giving everybody in this great , a big city with a big heart, a chance to get ahead and stay ahead. i could not more honored than to have her support and endorsement in the race. thank you so much, mayor. thank dr. karen and everybody here at the community college. colleges and iy know something about what this college is doing to give people of all ages, not just young get thea real chance to skills and the opportunities that everybody in america
3:13 pm
deserves. so thank you. i have to begin by saying my original plan for this visit was to focus on our agenda to help small businesses and entrepreneurs. this week, we proposed new steps to cut red -- red tape and taxes to make it easier for small businesses to get the credit they need to grow and hire. be a small business president. my father was a small businessman. i believe in america, if you can tree met, you should be able to build it. be talking a lot more about small business and our economic plans in the days and weeks ahead. but today, here in this community college, devoted to opening mines and creating a
3:14 pm
great understanding of the world in which we live, i want to address some i am hearing about from americans all over the country. go, people tell me by thecerned they are divisive rhetoric coming from my opponents in this election. [applause] i understand that concern because it is like nothing we have heard before. from a nominee for president of the united states from one of our two major parties. start, donald trump has built his campaign on prejudice and paranoia. he is taking hate groups mainstream and helping a radical the republicanr party. his disregard for the values that make our country great is profoundly dangerous.
3:15 pm
week, under the guise of outreach to african-americans, trump has stood up in front of largely white audiences and described black communities in such insulting and in -- ignorant terms. poverty, rejection, horrible education, no housing, no homes, no ownership, crime at levels that nobody has seen. he says right now you can walk down the street like -- and gets shot. when ire his words but hear that come i think to myself, how sad. much. trump mrs. so he does not see the success of black leaders in every field, the vibrancy of black-owned businesses, the strength of the black church. [applause] he doesn't see the of historically black
3:16 pm
colleges and of historically blk colleges and universities, the pride of lack parents watching their children thrive. he apparently did not see police chief round in dallas on television after the murders of five of his officers, conducting himself with such dignity. he certainly does not have any solutions to take on the reality of systemic racism and create more equity an opportunity in communities in -- communities of color and for every american. to asks a lot of nerve people he has ignored and mistreated for decades, what do you have to lose? the answer is everything. [cheers and applause] now, trump's lack of knowledge and experience or solutions would be bad enough. but what he is doing here is
3:17 pm
more sinister. trump is reinforcing harmful stereotypes and offering a dog whistle to his most hateful supporters. it is a disturbing preview of what kind of a president he would be. that is what i want to make clear today. a man with a long history of racial discrimination who traffics in dark conspiracy theories, drawn from the pages of supermarket tabloids and the far darker regions of the internet -- [applause] ms. clinton: should never run our government or command our military. ask yourself, if he does not respect all americans, how can he serve all americans?
3:18 pm
i know that some people still want to give trump the benefit of the doubt. they hope he will eventually reinvent himself. is a kinder, gentler, more responsible donald trump waiting in the wings somewhere. after all, it is hard to believe anyone, let alone a nominee for president, would really believe all the things that he says. here is the hard truth. other -- other donald trump. this is it. and maya angelou, a great american i admire very much -- [applause] once said whene someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. [applause] well, throughout his career and the campaign, donald trump has shown us
3:19 pm
exactly who he is and i think we should believe him. when he was getting his start in business, he was sued by the justice department for refusing to rent apartments to black and latino tenets. their applications would be for colored and then rejected. later, he was taken back to court because he hadn't changed. the pattern continued through the decade. fined one ofors trump's casinos for repeatedly removing black dealers from the floor. no wonder the turnover rate for his minority employees was way above average. that trumporget first gained political prominence leading the charge for the so-called birther's. he promoted the racist lie that president obama is not really an
3:20 pm
american citizen, part of a sustained effort to delegitimize america's first black president. in 2015, trump launched his own campaign for president with another racist lie. he described mexican immigrants as rapists and criminals and he accused the mexican government of actively sending them across the border. none of that is true. and by the way -- [applause] ms. clinton: by the way, mexico is not paying for his wall, either. [laughter] [applause] if he ever tries to get it tilt, the american taxpayer will pay for it. we will be stuck with the bill. but there has been a steady stream of digg entry coming from him. i think we all remember when trump said a distinguished
3:21 pm
federal judge born in indiana could not be trusted to do his job because he is a mexican. think about that. the man who today is the standard error of the republican whoy said a federal judge had a distinguished record as u.s. attorney, had to go into hiding because mexican drug gangs were after him, who had a mexican heritage but just like me was born in this country, is somehow incapable, totally because of his heritage. even the republican speaker of the house of representatives, paul ryan, described that, and i quote, as the text but definition of a racist comment. day, to this day, trump has never apologized to the judge. for trump, that is just par for the course. this is someone who retweets , likesupremacists online
3:22 pm
the user who goes by the name "white genocide tm." --mp took this fringe digit they get with a few dozen followers and spread his message to 11 million people. his campaign famously posted and anti-semitic image, the star of david, imposed over a sea of dollar bills that first appeared on white supremacist websites. campaign has also selected a prominent white nationalist leader as a delegate of california and they only dropped him under pressure. when asked in a nationally televised interview whether he would disavow the support of david duke, a former grand wizard of the ku klux klan, trump would not do it.
3:23 pm
again, under mounting pressure, did he backtrack. when trump was asked about anti-semitic slurs and death threats coming from his supporters, he refused to condemn them. through it all, he has continued pushing discredited conspiracy theories with racist undertones. you remember he said that thousands of american muslims in new jersey cheered the 9/11 attacks. they didn't. he suggested that ted cruz's father was involved in the kennedy assassination. now perhaps in trump's mind, because mr. cruz was a cuban immigrant, he must have had something to do with it. there is absolutely, of course, no evidence of that. just recently, trump claimed
3:24 pm
president obama founded isis. and then he repeated that over and over again. his latest paranoid fever dream is about my health. [laughter] and all i can say is, donald, dream on. [cheers and applause] ms. clinton: but, but my friends -- "hillary!"] but, my friends, this is what happens when you treat the national enquirer like gospel. they said in october i would be dead in six months. it is also what happens when you listen to the radio host alex jones, who claims that 9/11 and the oklahoma city bombings were
3:25 pm
inside jobs. said, and this really evenis so disgusting, he said the victims of the sandy hook massacre were child actors and no one was actually killed there. i don't know what happens in somebody's mind or how dark their heart must be to say things like that, but trump doesn't challenge these lies. he actually went on jones'show and said your representative -- b tatian is amazing and i will not let you down. this from a man who wants to be the president of the united states. stood by president obama's sighed as he made the toughest decision a commander-in-chief has to make. in times of crisis, our country depends on steady leadership, clear thinking, calm judgment,
3:26 pm
because one wrong move can mean the difference between life and death. i know we have veterans here and families, mothers, spouses, and children of people currently serving. the last thing we need is someone in the situation room who is a loose cannon, who cannot tell the difference or doesn't care to between fact and fiction. and devise so easily into racially tinged rumors. [applause] someone so detached from reality should never be in charge of making decisions that are as real as they come. and that is yet another reason why donald trump is temperamentally unfit to be president of the united states. [applause] now, i read some
3:27 pm
people who are saying, well, his luster and his bigotry, it is just overheated campaign rhetoric, and outrages person saying outrageous things for attention. but look at his policies. the ones that trump has proposed, they would put prejudice into practice. and don't be distracted by his latest efforts to muddy the waters. he may have new peoples putting new words in his mouth, but we know where he stands. a deportation forced to round up millions of immigrants and kick them out of the country. he would abolish the bedrock hundred -- constitutional principle that says if you are born in the united states, you are an american citizen. he said children born to undocumented parents in america are anchor babies who should be deported. millions of them. muslims around the world from entering our country
3:28 pm
just because of their religion. think about that for a minute. how would that actually work? airportsnding, at u.s. , would line up to get their passports stamped just like they do now but in trump's america, when they step up to the counter, the immigration officer would ask every single person, what is your religion? then what? what if someone says, i am a christian but they do not believe him? do they have to prove it? how would they do that? really. ever since the pilgrims landed on plymouth rock, america has distinguished itself as a haven for people fleeing religious persecution, believing in religious freedom, and religious liberty. [applause]
3:29 pm
trump, america would distinguish itself as the only country in the world to impose a religious test at the border. it, they'rek of actually maybe one other place that does that, the so-called islamic state, the territory that isis controls. what a cruel irony if someone running for president woody cletus with them. but don't worry. some will say, as president, trump will be surrounded by smart advisors who will reign in his worst impulses. [laughter] ms. clinton: so when a tweet gets under his skin and he wants to retaliate with a cruise missile, maybe cooler heads will be there to convince him not to. maybe. but look at who he's put in charge of his campaign. trump likes to say he only hires the best people. but he's had to fire so many campaign managers it's like an
3:30 pm
episode of the apprentice. [cheers and applause] ms. clinton: the latest shakeup was designed to, quote, "let trump be trump." to do that, he hired stephen bannon, the head of a right-wing website called, as campaign ceo. to give you a flavor of his work, here are a few headlines and i'm not making this up. "birth control makes women unattractive and crazy." "would you rather your child had
3:31 pm
feminism or cancer?" "gabby giffords: the gun control movement's human shield" "hoist it high and proud: the confederate flag proclaims a glorious heritage." that one came shortly after the charleston massacre, when democrats and republicans alike were doing everything they could to heal racial divides. breitbart and steve bannon tried to inflame. just imagine donald trump , reading that and thinking: -- thinking, "this is what i need more of in my campaign." bannon has nasty things to say about pretty much everyone. this spring, he railed against paul ryan for, quote "rubbing his social-justice catholicism in my nose every second." no wonder he's gone to work for
3:32 pm
trump, the only presidential candidate ever to get into a public feud with the pope. according to the southern poverty law center, which tracks hate groups, breitbart embraces "ideas on the extremist fringe of the conservative right." this is not conservatism as we know it. this is not republicanism as we know it. these are racist ideas. race-baiting ideas. anti-muslim, anti-immigrant, anti-woman, all key tenets making up an emerging racist ideology known as the "alt right." alt-right is short for alternative right. "the wall street journal" describes it as a loosely organized movement, mostly online, that "rejects mainstream conservatism, promotes nationalism and views immigration and multiculturalism
3:33 pm
as threats to white identity." the de facto merger between breitbart and the trump campaign represents a landmark achievement for the alt right. a fringe element has effectively taken over the republican party. this is part of a broader story -- the rising tide of hardline, right-wing nationalism around the world. just yesterday, one of britain's most prominent right-wing leaders, nigel farage, who stoked anti-immigrant sentiments to win the referendum on leaving the european union, campaigned with donald trump in mississippi. farage has called for a ban on the children of legal immigrants from public schools and health services, has said women are -- and i quote -- worth less than men, and supports scrapping laws that prevent employers from discriminating based on race -- that's who trump wants by his side.
3:34 pm
when he is addressing an audience of american voters. and the godfather of this global brand of extreme nationalism is russian president vladimir putin. in fact, farage has appeared regularly on russian propaganda programs. now he's standing on the same stage as the republican nominee. trump himself heaps praise on putin and embrace pro-russian -- embraces pro-russian policies. he talks casually of abandoning our nato allies, recognizing russia's annexation of crimea, and of giving the kremlin a free hand in eastern europe more generally. american presidents from truman to reagan have rejected the kind of approach trump is taking on russia. we should, too. all of this adds up to something we've never seen before.
3:35 pm
of course there's always been a paranoid fringe in our politics, steeped in racial resentment. but it's never had the nominee of a major party stoking it, encouraging it, and giving it a national megaphone. until now. on david duke's radio show the other day, the mood was jubilant. "we appear to have taken over the republican party," one white supremacist said. duke laughed. no, there's still more work to do, he replied. no one should have any illusions about what's really going on here. the names may have changed. s now call themselves racial lists. white supremacists now call themselves white nationalists.
3:36 pm
the paranoid fringe now calls itself alt right, but the hate burns just as bright. and now trump is trying to rebrand himself as well. don't be fooled. there's an old mexican proverb that says "tell me with whom you walk, and i will tell you who you are." we know who trump is. a few words on a teleprompter won't change that. he says he wants to "make america great again," but his real message remains "make america hate again." this isn't just about one election. it's about who we are as a nation. it's about the kind of example we want to set for our children and grandchildren. next time you watch donald trump on television, think about all the kids listening across our country. kids hear a lot more than we think. parents and teachers are already
3:37 pm
worried about what they're calling the "trump affect." they report that bullying and harassment are on the rise in our schools, especially targeting students of color, muslims, and immigrants. at a recent high school basketball game in indiana, white students held up trump signs and taunted latino players on the opposing team with chants of "build the wall!" and "speak english." after a similar incident in iowa, one frustrated school principal said, "they see it in a presidential campaign and now it's ok for everyone to say this." we wouldn't tolerate that kind of behavior before. we wouldn't tolerate it in our own homes. we should not stand for it from a presidential candidate. [applause] my friends, this is a moment of
3:38 pm
reckoning for every republican dismayed that the party of lincoln has become the party of trump. it's a moment of reckoning for all of us who love our country and believe that america is better than this. twenty years ago, when bob dole accepted the republican nomination, he pointed to the exits and told any racists in the party to get out. the week after 9/11, george w. bush went to a mosque and declared for everyone to hear that muslims "love america just as much as i do." in 2008, john mccain told his own supporters they were wrong about the man he was trying to defeat. senator mccain made sure they knew.
3:39 pm
barack obama, he said, is an american citizen, and a decent person. we need that kind of leadership again. we can have our disagreements, and believe me, i understand that. i think that's healthy. we need good debates. but we need to do it in a respectful way, not ,inger-pointing, blaming stirring up this bigotry and prejudice. every day, more americans are standing up and saying "enough is enough" including a lot of republicans. i'm honored to have their support. and i promise you this, with your help, i will be a president for democrats, republicans, and independents. for those who vote for me and those who don't.
3:40 pm
i will cap president -- i will be a president for all americans. because i believe we are stronger together. it's a vision for the future rooted in our values and reflected in a rising generation of young people who are the most open, diverse, and connected we've ever seen. how many of you saw any of the olympics? right? i was so proud. i always get carried away every time the olympics is on. look at the diversity of our athletes. look at our fabulous olympic team, representing the united states of america. like ibtihaj muhammad, an african-american muslim from new
3:41 pm
jersey who won the bronze medal in fencing with grace and skill. would she even have a place in donald trump's america? i will tell you, when i was growing up, simone manuel many parts of our country, wouldn't have been allowed to swim in the same public pool as katie ledecky. now, together on the swimming team, they're winning olympic medals as teammates. you, but iw about don't think we have a person to waste. we want to build an america where everyone has a place, where if you work hard and do your part, you can get ahead and stay ahead. that is the basic bargain of america.
3:42 pm
and we can i get to where we need to be unless we move forward together and stand up paranoia,ejudice and parad and proof, again, that america is great because is america is good. thank you so much. let's go out and win this election. and may god bless the united states of america. thank you.
