[chanting trump, trump, trump] >> and now my first question to you, donald. first of all, thank you very much for joining us. >> this is very exciting. do we love indiana. this is great. thank you. thank you, all. >> i want to start with the political news of the day. senator ted cruz has announced that his vice presidential candidate is carlie fiorina. what's your reaction to that? >> well, i think it's really a waste of time.
honestly. [ laughter ] it should be over. if indiana treats us right, we're going to make america great again. we're going to get rid of these politicians. and we're going to do the right job. i mean, two days ago it was kasich and they were going to form alliance and collude and get together and then all of a sudden kasich didn't live up to his side of the teal and they are fighting with each other and now he is doing the carlie thing. i just don't see it it's awfully early. number one, very early. not supposed to be doing it this early but i don't see it. >> who is on your list? >> i have a lot of great people. i like to finish the deal first. cruz has no path to victory and neither does kasich. i like to finish the deal first. we have got to get it done. and once the deal is done, you will be -- i will make her the first to know. we will make her the best to know. but we will let you know. we have some really great people, but i just think it's so early in the process. you have to first get the nomination. here is a guy picking a vice presidential candidate, he
has zero chance. he has no path. sort of crazy. so i think it's -- well, it gets him in the news cycle because he has been totally taken out. he had a horrible day yesterday. and he came in third, meaning third out of three. most of the time. [ laughter ] i guess four out of five, he was third. and he picked up no delegates. and, you know, you are talking about major states like pennsylvania, like maryland. i mean, we're talking about big stuff. and connecticut. he came in -- he got nothing. and i think he wanted to do something to get out of that negative cycle. and in that sense it was probably good for him, but, people will not like it. >> all right. today is a big foreign policy speech that you gave in washington, d.c. among some of the things that you said i will not send our finest into battle unless necessary and only if we have a plan for victory. how do you define necessary? >> well, necessary and victory. number one, i define necessary is protecting our country. that's what necessary is. it's protecting our country.
[ applause ] >> we don't look at it that way. and it was interesting. i got a big hand, i am only going to send them in if we win. we don't win. as a country, can you look at trade -- we don't win anymore. we just don't win. even with our military we have these incredible people but we are not taking care of them properly. it's being depleted. our vets are being taken care of horribly. that's going to change immediately. that, i can tell you. we don't fight -- you know, when i was growing up the united states always used to win. and it was a long time ago. we vice president been winning so much. but we certainly aren't winning now in any capacity. is there a point now that you consider necessary? if you were the oval office now and president would be deploying any troops in any place? >> to me, when i heard the other day i heard president obama say the single greatest threat to our country is global warming. [ laughter ] was he serious?
was he being serious? we have global warming but of the nuclear variety. that's the biggest threat we have. that is the single biggest threat we have. and frankly, if it weren't for that capability and the incredible power of weaponry today, i would have been out of there a long time. i have been saying this to you for years don't go into iraq. don't go into iraq because we totally destroyed the balance of power. we destroyed the whole equilibrium of the middle east and now iran is taking over the middle east. it's terrible. if we didn't do anything in the last 15 years, if we just forgot the middle east was there, we would be in such great shape today in comparison with migration, people pouring into our country which is obama's fault in our fail fairness. we are taking tens of thousands of people into the united states. we have no idea, greta, who they're. there is no documentation. there is no paperwork. but victory to me is victory. if we go in to fight, we have to fight to win and get it over with, fast. [ applause ]
>> you brought up -- you brought up the issue of nukely north korea is imminent. if you are not president of the united states. would you be doing anything about the fact and they also just launched a missile from a submarine. >> they are having a field day with us. it's a form of extortion. you want to know the truth. it really is. it's a form of extortion. that's what i think we're doing it for. monster in terms of economics. any time you order a television set lg or samsung. whatever it comes from. essentially south korea. biggest ships. they pay us very little. and we protect many other countries china has tremendous power over north
korea. tremendous, beyond anybody. now, they don't tell us that they like to tweak us and say we don't -- we have total control. china can't even survive without us because economically they have been ripping us for many years to come. they have been sucking our blood. >> how do you get them to act? >> we tell them we're going to either -- you are going to have to straighten out this north korea problem or we're not going to be doing so much business with you. they don't do so much business with us, greta. they would have a depression the likes of which you have ever seen. we have tremendous economic power over china. i want to get along with china. we're going to get along with china. china can strangle because it comes in through china and it's -- china is powerful. china can strangle north korea. it can make them -- bring them to the table. >> how fast is the outbreak. >> i think it can be very, very quick. at what point are we the guardian of the world? at what point are we going to say, folks, you have to protect yourselves or you have to pay us properly, okay? or you have to pay us properly.
and. [ applause ] and a lot of people don't know this because i give the speeches and i talk and i'm a very -- you know, i'm a very business-minded person and the country isn't business-minded. politicians are not business-minded. we protect japan. great people. we protect saudi arabia. we protect south korea. we protect so many countries and we protect germany. look at germany. it's an economic behemoth. they have so much money. we protect germany. it's okay to protect and i understand that we don't want them to arm ideally and all of that but at what point do we say we can't afford to do this anymore as a country? you'll have to protect yourselves or you have to pay up. look at saudi arabia before the oil went down they were making plenty. $1 billion a day we protect them. they wouldn't be there, in my opinion, saudi arabia wouldn't be there for two weeks if we weren't protecting them. it would be a mess like you have never seen before. we have to get smart and we
have to help our allies and be good to our allies. but they have to remember that we are good and they have to take care of us. >> donald. [ applause ] >> donald, you have an audience question from kelly. and first of all, kelly, you have made up your mind how are going to vote for? >> definitely. i have always voted republican. and i will only vote for trump. >> did she say always vote for trump. >> always vote for trump and says only vote for you. >> that's good. that's what i thought you said. [ applause ] >> thank you very much. >> my question is. my father owns a custom -- a small custom manufacturing company here in indiana, which employs about 50 people. the two major problems that we face are the high cost of healthcare, the health insurance and also that we are losing jobs -- we are losing our customers to cheaper prices outside of
the u.s. so i was wondering, mr. trump, when you become president, what will you do. [ applause ] what will you do to help our family keep our business. >> such a great question. i was looking at indiana because i always get these statisticians. get me the list. 15 minutes. did i it last week with new york, new york city. all the same problems. did i it with pennsylvania and every place i have been to the last couple of weeks. i look at the numbers and look at our jobs. look at carrier airconditioning a larger way what is happening with your father, where jobs are being ripped out of our country, out of our states but out of our country. we have got to do a couple of things. when they want to play games with us, countries or companies, when a company wants to leave like carrier and they want to go to mexico and going to make air conditioners and not tax them and let the 1400 people from indianapolis go, they are going to fire them, there has got to be
consequences. and the same thing with your father. when countries are able to too numbers on us, there are going to be consequences. we have to do some some form of taxation. i believe totally in free market. that's great. our leaders are not smart. they are not smart people or they are controlled by special interest groups that have reasons for letting it be this way. one or the other. [ applause ] >> by the way and it's one of those two things was i'm self-funding so i'm working for you. i'm working for your father, okay? what we're going to have to do very strongly. we have to take the situation, tax these products coming. in people said they are going to cost more. in some cases they are going to cost a little more. in some cases like carrier not even going to cost more. we have to tax the product coming. in and what's going to happen the second part is we are going to have more workers. we're going to have more people and more jngets maybe the product is going to be more expensive, so we are going to have more jobs. that's the good news. as far as healthcare repeal obamacare, replace it with
something great. okay? you have your healthcare savings account. the amazing things about healthcare. if we get rid of the lines wrapped around every -- this is for the benefit of the insurance companies. have real competition whether it's healthcare savings accounts or so many different things. there are so many things you could have privately to take care of healthcare. obamacare is out of control. your premiums are going up 35, 45, 50%. we're going to repeal it, replace it with something great. thank you. great question a question from steve. steve, have you decided how are voting for? >> who am i voting for? >> yes. >> well, i think my question might answer that question. >> okay. what's your question, sir? >> mr. trump. >> yes. >> i was likely going to vote for governor kasich in indiana's primary next week but feel that he and his campaign have turned their back on indiana with his agreement that he has now with senator cruz. what can you say now to
convince me to vote for you next tuesday instead of switching my vote to cruz as suggested by their strategy to defeat you? >> okay. well, first of all, i think you did the right thing by switching because i think that what they did in colluding like that, i think it was such a slap in the face of the people of indiana, in particular. i thought it was a slap in the face. both of them. actually you couldn't go to cruz because it was equal if not worse. i just think it was terrible what you what they were doing. if they had to do it again they would have never done it typical politicians make bad deals. on top of it kasich broke the deal he said no i want you to vote for me in indiana. typical precisions. h. politicians. i'm going to save the second amendment which is under siege from everybody. [ applause ]
getting rid of common core and bring in education locally because our education, the system is a total wreck. we're going to strengthen our military, take care of our vets. we're going to go through a list of things and make this country so strong again so, great again, we have to strengthen our military. our military is being absolutely depleted at the highest level. i mean, you look at -- i made a speech today and i was talking about the military compared to 10 years ago, it's incredible. it's just getting smaller and yet the world is getting more and more dangerous. but, in terms of yourself, you look like you might be a businessman. we're going to lower taxes. i have the plan that lowers taxes by more than any other candidate by far. larry, a friend of greta's, gave it his best review. larry is an amazing economist. a friend of greta's and everybody's, actually. he gave it his best review. we will lower taxes. but we're going to bring jobs back. the other thing is we are not going to let jobs go. if a carrier came to me and said we want to move to mexico. that's okay but you will pay
a 35% tax every time an airconditioning unit is sold through what will be a strong border, and i will tell you something, they are going to say, sir, we're going to stay in indiana. nobody can do more than that. [ applause ] we will bring you much more from our town hall record with donald trump. we have surprise guests too. that's coming up. don't go away. by refinancing her mortgage, jennifer martinez was able to put extra money back into her home-based business. helping her do what she was destined to do...

[cheers and applause] and welcome back to our special "on the record" town hall with g.o.p. presidential candidate, frontrunner, donald trump. and we are coming to you from indianapolis. and in less than one week it's indiana's turn. indiana voters will hit the polls. let's get right back to our questions with donald trump. donald, we have another audience member who has a question. isaiah, you have a question for him. first of all, how old are you. >> i'm 18. >> so you are going to vote next week, right? >> i am. yep. >> have you decided how are voting for. >> i have not. that's why i'm here. >> okay. fire away. ask your question. >> mr. trump, thank you for meeting with us tonight. i'm actually a senior this year at trader's point and heading off to wabash college in the fall. >> good. >> as we all know senator sanders is offering free college tuition. [ laughter ] >> i think he is leaving the race today by the way. so he has got some difficulty but go ahead. >> i think this is unattainable and obviously unachievable. >> sure. >> it would also devalue a person's degree.
however, being a high school senior, financial decisions play a massive role when deciding where to go to college. my question is do you have anything in place to combat the everrising cost of college tuition. >> it's a great question. it's a question i get asked more than any other question especially when i'm in areas where you have young folks going to college. it's very sad, the students are literally they borrowed up to here. and what the colleges have done is they haven't watched their costs because basically the students are the conduit between the government and college to get money. college rates keep going up, up, up much faster than any other cost if you take a look. we will look into that. the students are borrowing up to here. the other problem they have and we will work on student loans and work on some kind of a deal for low interest and really good student loans. give them a longer term to pay it out. maybe may it out after they get jobs. they have to pay it back. look, we work a deal where the students can li with it because they are not able to live with it right now. but, the biggest problem is you go to college, you go to
a good college, that's a good college, you go to a great college, and you graduate, and you do well, and you get out, and you can't get a job. and that's the biggest problem. because they can't get jobs. there are no good jobs. even the other side admits the jobs we have are bad jobs. the real unemployment rate is like 20%. not 5%. that's done so the politicians look good. because if you go out and look for a job and quit looking for a job. they consider you statistically you are considered employed. so, here's what we do. we're going to work on jobs. we're going to bring our jobs back from mexico and from china and from japan. >> how? >> we're going to make our products here. we are going to start making our products here. [ applause ] >> countries are abusing us. believe me, folks, countries are abusing us. the reason the politicians don't do -- they know the problem. corporate inversions and everything else. they are leaving like you couldn't believe it look, i looked at numbers. 40% of your manufacturing is gone in this area.
40% over a fairly short period of time. we're going to stop it. companies are taking advantage of us and companies are abusing us. and the way you stop it is so easy. it's called consequence. if they want to play that game and it's a dirty game that they are playing, again, free trading, i love it i always want to defend it. but we can't do it because we don't have the people. we don't have the smart people. what we're going to have to do is tariffs and taxes for the countries that don't behave. and do you know what's going to happen? as soon as we say we are going to impose it, they are going to behave very, very nicely. [ applause ] the problem we have from the student standpoint, greta, they are graduating from college, they're wonderful, they are great, they graduate high in their class. they can't get jobs. >> we have a question, donald from steven in the audience. steven, have you decided who you are voting for? >> i have. he is sitting on the stage with you. >> oh, i love you. [ applause ]
>> i can tell. >> do you have a question. >> i do. thank you for taking this question. thank you, mr. trump. >> early in your campaign, you made the comment that you would be neutral on israel. i believe that this takes the handcuffs off israel to operate nationally as a sovereign nation whereas you were criticized in the media for this statement. how do you envision our role in israel and the middle east going forward? >> okay. that's a great question. and, look, i want to see peace. i want to see if it can be done. when you talk about the all-time deal in terms of toughness. that's it. a deal between the palestinians and israel. that's the all-time -- we all have -- it's called our dream deem. what's the deal. >> next book. >> earn tells me it can't be made. the israeli tells me -- you know, i have never met a person from israel and i know so many of them, that didn't want to make a deal. but they say that's the hardest deal because it's
years and years. centuries. it's like engrained. but i will be trying to make that deal. i am a big fan of israel, i have to tell you. there is no bigger fan of israel. [ applause ] and i want to be able to get both sides together and see if we can do something. but there is nobody who will be more loyal to israel than donald trump. [ applause ] >> and we're going to make -- you know, one of our great allies, and honestly, when you look at this horrible deal that obama made, that president obama made, with iran, where we give them 150 billion -- we got nothing out of the deal. $150 billion. we actually got nothing. even our prisoners didn't come back until we gave them the money. and i will tell you what, you will never see deals like that made with me. you understand that, steven, that's why you are with me. we have to protect israel and take care of israel. they are sort of a bagsian bassian all by themselves right now.
president obama is the single worst thing that i have ever seen happen to israel. it's unbelievable. it's unbelievable. [cheers and applause] i love the question, steve, but we are going to take great care of israel. we are going to protect and cherish israel. we will see if we can make a deal. i just have to do that. almost from a competitive standpoint. they all say you can't do it. it can never be done. i say you can do it. we will see what happens. thank you. we are going to take another quick break. we have more questions from donald trump on second half of "on the record" town hall. plus we have two special guests. that's next. [ applause ] you've finally earned enough reward miles on your airline credit card. now you just book a seat, right? not quite. sometimes those seats are out of reach, costing an outrageous number of miles.
you well, coach, nice to see you. [shouting] >> i have already given the coach trouble back stage because indiana beat wisconsin just too many times. but, >> i'm delighted to talk to the coach. why are awe trumpthe supporter?y >> because i think democrat. and i have always voted because i think that voting is a special thing that we have in this country that isn't in a lot of different countries. but i have always voted. but i have always voted for the person that i thought was best for the job. [ applause ] there is no question in my
mind that the man sitting between the two of us is far and away the best person to lead america back where we all want to be led, and that's the guy that can do it right here. >> oh, thank you, coach. >> so who contacted who? donald, did you contact coach or did coach contact you. >> i will tell you it's a funny story. i have been a fan for a lot of years. >> you and the whole state. >> the whole country. not just the state, everybody. i get a call about a year ago from bobby. he said if you run for office, i'm endorsing you. and i hadn't even really decided at that point whether i was going to run. he just called up. i said you know what, coach, do me a favor. first, i had to make sure it was really him i said bobby knight. that was like a big deal for me. i said will you do me a favor? give me your number and we will see what happens and i will call you back. and about a week ago i said, hey, we're going to indiana
and we all love indiana but who is more mr. indiana. who has done more for indiana. look at all the championships and the beauty is it's not even that. he is up believable leader. is he tough, he is smart. and he knows how to wish. because we don't win anymore. bobby. we were saying before we don't win anymore. i said hey, and i called the number. he picked up. yeah. i said, coach, it's trump. do you still want to endorse me? he said absolutely. i've been waiting for your call. so, anyway. [ applause ] >> that, to me is, a little indication of the kind of man we're talking to right here. and is he absolutely right in how things worked with me having a friend call him and get a chance to talk to him and i kind of said well, you know, i hope that works out because i would really like to be in a position where i can be of some help to him. not really thinking well, i
will tell you, on the exact day that he told me would call me about two or three months later, that morning at 7:00, he called me to ask me if i was ready to go. now, i think that most people in his status would have forgotten about that a long time ago. but, let me tell you, when he tells he is going to do something, and when he is on the side of what has to be done, he never ever forgets what he is doing. i will tell you that right now. and what is he doing, best man there is for the development of the united states. [ applause ] donald and coach, we have a question from a member of the audience, forest, who is part of the greatest generation, served in world war ii has a question for donald trump. [ applause ] and, forest, thank you.
thank you, forest. [ applause ] >> thank you. >> as an indiana university graduate and world war ii vet, i have a tremendous respect for the general bobby knight. [ applause ] and, mr. trump, how would you compare your successful career and philosophy with coach knight? >> well, that's actually a great question. i just love his philosophy. i mean, we're in a different world. he was in the world of sports and nobody did better. and you know one of the great things about bobby that a lot of people don't know, is he really trained a lot of great coaches. some of the best like you look at duke and you look at so many of the different
places where they have the great coaches, they were trained and they worked with bobby. but bobby was -- you know, his field, a tremendous leader and what he has done is phenomenonnal. so i would like to put myself in a category even close to bobby as far as that. you talk about the word leadership, that's leadership. thank you. >> that sounded very nice of you to say that i appreciate it. but let me say another thing about mr. trump. and i think we're a little bit alike in that regard. if we're involved in something where we want to win, and particularly something that's necessary, if there's something out there where we need to win, we're going to try and beat your ass every time we can. [cheers and applause]

[so i use quickbooks and run mye entire business from the cloud. i keep an eye on sales and expenses from anywhere. even down here in the dark i can still see we're having a great month. and celebrate accordingly. i run on quickbooks.that's how i own it. welcome back to indianapolis "on the record" town hall with g.o.p. frontrunner donald trump. indiana is the biggest delegate prize until california. and right now let's get back to the question. donald, i'm going to ask you one. it's no secret our country doesn't have a lot of money. we're in debt. what would the foreign aid policy be of a trump administration for -- this is a two part question. one is to use money as coercion for countries that we aren't particularly friendly with and may not deserve but we want to get them to do something and the
other for humanitarian aid like i was just down in ecuador where earthquake victims and you have got nepal and you have haiti and all these countries where people are desperate. what would you be doing with foreign aid policy on money. >> can i see both to be honest with you. we do have countries that we are not in love with them. if we don't help them it would be bigger problems. i can sort of see both. at the same time we give money and a lot of things and a lot of help to countries that absolutely don't deserve it the absolutely, they are not our friends. they don't do anything good for us. it's like a one-way street. you look at nato, as an example, we 28 countries. many of those countries are delinquent. they haven't paid up and they have the money to pay up. we have trillions, probably, trillions of dollars out there of past due. i said i want these countries to pay up and we will protect them and we will take care -- we are protecting them. they are not doing anything for us. they have got to pay up. i said not only do they pay up, they have to pay us all of the past arrears. >> let's say a country like pakistan is sometimes
doubled dealt us. >> the problem with pakistan they have nuclear weapons which is a real problem. the single biggest problem we have nuclear weapons. nine countries right now with nuclear weapons. but it's semi unstable and we don't want to see total instability. it's not that much, relatively speaking. we have a little bit of a good relationship. i think i would try and keep it that's very much against my grain to say that but, a country and that's always the country i think. we give them money. we help them out. but if we don't, i think that would go on the other side of the ledger and that could really be a disaster. at the same time, if you look at india and some of the others, maybe they will be helping us out because we are going to look at it but we have many, many countries that we give a lot of money to and we get absolutely nothing in return. that's going to stop fast. >> what about the countries that may have deep need but whenever i do these stories like on ecuador people say what about here? >> well, that's a problem. you have to understand, though, greta, we are a debtor nation. we owe $19 trillion.
we used to be the police -- we are now the policemen of the world. we take care of everything. everybody says our military. weigh spend many, many times what any other country spends on military. but we don't spend it for ourself, we spend it to protect everybody else. we are protecting everybody. it's not our military. our military as i said before it's depleted. you look at that we have to start, you any, getting rid of debt. balancing budgets. we just can't continue to keep giving, giving, giving. now, there are countries that can do it. >> would you cut out giving some of this humanitarian aid to the countries that are uttering hurting? >> i would try to keep some of these countries going. we are a debtor nation. we are sitting on a bubble like you wouldn't believe. we owe $19 trillion. we will be at $21 trillion like almost immediately because of the horrible omnibus budget that was just passed which by the way funds obamacare it funds people pouring into the country. it people syrian migration. we have no idea they are. they could be isis. i know how involved you are.
i'm not surprise to do have this question to be honest with you because you are amazing. she goes all over the world helping people. we are going to try. but we do have problems. we have a debtor nation. we do have problems. and we have to -- you know, i gay a speech this morning. one of the -- i mean, the primary thing was america first. we have to fix our country. it's so broken. we have to fix it.

welcome back to indianapolis. we are at the theater for the "on the record" town hall with donald trump. we are now joined by one of his three sons, donald trump jr. nice to see you. >> great to be here, greta. how are you? [ applause ] >> okay. how much fun was tuesday night with the five primaries and the sweep? >> it was amazing. i can't be more proud of what he has done. as an american, as a father, just to see this and see the voice he is giving to the people of this country for a change. it's just amazing. >> did you expect. >> it they even surprised us. buff the people are getting it they are seeing the system is rigged against them. they are seeing their voice often time doesn't matter. they are looking to change that in a resounding win like we had that night is actually going to give them that voice again. [ applause ] >> donald, one of the fun things about my job is i get to meet all the candidates' children over the years. you are proud of your kids, aren't you? >> i am. i have great children. i have five children. the older ones are really helping me with the campaign and ivanka, don and eric. tiffany, also.
she has been terrific. barron is a little young right now. he will be there, eventually. but they are fantastic children. and there is nothing -- people oftentimes say they are impressed by success. the most successful people that i have met because they are the happiest are people with great families. more so than the people with money. i know them all. i know them all. [cheers and applause] >> the really successful people are the people that have the great families. these are the happiest people. >> don, has there been a family discussion in the event that your father is the nominee and goes on to win in november how you are going to extricate him from the business and who is going to do what? >> if there is anything he has given us over the past few years it took us a while to prove ourselves to him. he wasn't just going to turn over the company worth tens million dollars of. he has obligation to people who served him so well so long. set only one up here who has
actually created jobs. is he actually signing the front of a paycheck. that's a big deal. that's a big deal to me. [cheers and applause] >> since then and over the last decade i think we have proven ourselves to him. we work incredibly well as a family between eric, ivanka and i. it has gone well. he has given us autonomy to do this. ultimate trust that we can do it. >> they better do it right. [ laughter ] >> donald, you have another question from melanie who joins us. melanie -- thank you for joining us. have you decided how are going to vote. >> i am undecided. that's why i am here. >> fire away. this is your chance to ask candidate donald trump a question. >> and thank you for being here. >> thank you. >> and, mr. trump, it was brought to my attention on the record by greta the amount of wasteful spending in the government. >> tremendous. >> and the lack of accountability. >> right. >> and, my question is, what
will you do about that and would you consider a woman who is very informed, caring, and smart like greta as part of your cabinet? >> that's not a bad idea. [cheers and applause] >> that is not a bad idea: she would be excellent. >> i think more than an hour with me would be enough for donald. >> the truth is she is doing so well i'm not sure she would want it. if you want to know the truth. >> what about government waste? >> i will say. this it's such a great question and nobody ever asks that question. we talk about how do you get money and bring the jobs back and all of that is going to be easy. the way the easiest thing for me is cutting. we call it waste, fraud, and abuse. we have billions and billions and billions of dollars. you see it where a highway is going to cost x dollars and it costs five times more than it is supposed to. you can imagine the money
making things on country out of control including military spending. military spending is tremendous and very important to me and we will rebuild our military. things cost three times as much, not supposed to happen that way. it won't happen that way with the right contractors, frankly, and the right people knowing how to negotiate a contract. so there is tremendous waste and there is tremendous fraud and abuse. and we are going to save billions and billions of dollars. such a great question because and it's so easy. it's so easy. that's one of the easiest things. so, very good. i hope you are going to vote for me. >> we will take another quick break. coming up, closing thoughts from the "on the record" 2016 town hall. that's straight ahead. my mom loves giving me advice. she even gives me advice...
...about my toothpaste and mouthwash. but she's a dentist so...i kind of have to listen. she said "jen, go pro with crest pro-health advanced." advance to healthier gums... ...and stronger teeth from day one. using crest toothpaste and mouthwash makes my... ...whole mouth feel awesome. and my teeth are stronger too. crest-pro health advanced... ...is superior to colgate total... ...in these 5 areas dentists check. this check up? so good. go pro with crest pro-health advanced. mom's right...again!
[cheers and applause] >> and we are in downtown indianapolis at the historic gilbert circle theater as presidential candidate donald trump and donald trump jr. we have a few closing thoughts. donald, now that we are getting down close to the convention and we are looking sort of at the numbers and whether you will get the 1237 or whether you can numerically do it. when you think that when all is said and done you can work with governor kasich and senator ted cruz. >> i think so. i really do. i think it's going to happen. so many people have called me up over the last couple of weeks because we have been doing so well. big victory last week far above anybody's expectation. it was a blow out and last night it was a total blowout. five states that everybody, every one of them was beyond expectation. i will tell you what, i have been getting so many calls for people that i will see on your show and other shows that say the worst things about me. it's like -- >> -- you say bad things, too. you can fire back just as hard. [ laughter ] >> that's true.
but they will say these things. >> your son nodded yes by the way. >> i know him well, true. >> no, but the, but, greta. they say such bad things and they call me over the last couple of weeks. they want to get on board. they want to come in. i actually said to a couple of them how you can -- after what you said about me -- it's okay. i want to have you. but how you can possibly do that? and they say don't worry about it you know what? because they are politicians. they can do it. it doesn't matter. they all want to come. tremendous numbers of people are coming on board. they will be announced pretty soon. a lot of people. and people that you wouldn't believe. people that said the worst things and they are going to -- no problem. >> politics s. a unique business. >> it's a strange world here. >> thank you don jr. and donald trump, a big thanks to both of you for joining us and for our town hall tonight. that's all for now. see you tomorrow night right here at 7:00 p.m. eastern. good night from indianapolis. [cheers and applause]
