it could come down to what the people of indiana say about who's going to wind up being the nominee on the republican side. >> all right. we now want to bring in trump on the phone with us. we want to ask you, mr. trump, about the video we were showing earlier. you have these protesters there on the side of the road and they have trump signs. ted cruz comes over and he has a confrontation with some of your supporters. let's listen and then get your reaction. >> okay. >> well, sir, you know, actually -- >> he'll take down isis. >> civilized people don't just scream and yell at each other. >> you are the problem. you are the problem, politician. >> donald trump is deceiving you. he's playing you for a chump. >> you'll find out tomorrow. indiana don't want you. >> sir, america is a better country -- >> without you. >> thank you for those kind sentiments. let me point out, i have treated you respectfully the entire time. and a question that everyone here should ask -- >> are you canadian?
>> well, donald, what do you think of that confrontation between your supporter and ted cruz? >> well, they know he's lying. they have been watching him lie. that's what he does. that's why we call him lyin' ted. the people are smart people. and they haven't been taken properly care of. you know, by the government. you know, these are smart people and they have -- it's very sad. you know, middle income people haven't had a pay raise in 18 years effectively. 18 years and they're very upset and very angry and they have a lot of spirit. what's going on now is an amazing thing and we're going to stop china and all these countries from ripping us off and, i mean, so many things wrong with government that could be solved so easily. >> but he told that man, that trump supporter, you're being played by a -- as a chump by trump. >> yeah. i mean -- that's just another lie. they understand it. he look him right in the eye and they said, you know, we know. he also said, donald trump said he's not going to build the wall.
he makes stuff up. it just comes out his mouth. marco rubio called him a liar during the debate and i said, well, that's great because he really does. then that sort of opened it up. i never heard that before. when another senator says it, it opens it up. but these guys have become very famous the way they handled him so easily. it was incredible. >> you never told "the new york times" you weren't building the wall? >> absolutely not. absolutely not. >> okay. steve? >> hey, mr. trump, i'm in indianapolis right now. i know you have been spending a lot of time out here in the hoosier state. a lot of people that we have talked to here in the deli here are very excited about your candidacy and they have already voted for you. early voting. a lot of them had the little stickers that said i voted so far this morning. but i was watching the local news last night and it seemed like with the local affiliates during every commercial break, it was a cruz ad, then an anti-trump ad, then a trump ad
and then another cruz ad. it seems like the establishment and ted cruz are throwing everything they can at you to try to stop you today here in indianapolis and indiana. >> steve, they're spending tens of millions of dollars on ads that are a lie. just like in florida where i won in a landslide. it's just like in other states. they're spending millions of dollars -- and the ads are a lie. one of the groups that did the ad, they asked me for $1 million i said no thank you. and they went out and did negative ads on me. that's called club for growth. they're a bunch of extortionists. they came in, wanted money from me and when i said no they started a negative ad campaign and they're up now in indiana and the ads are lies. and it is just disgraceful. but, you know, i think people are wise to it. like the guys that were, you know, talking to cruz yesterday. they get him and they understand what's going on. and i don't think he's got thor the -- the temperament to be president to start off with. i think people are tired of what's happening with the politicians and they're just
tired of seeing our country get ripped off. >> mr. trump, there is an influential community of evangelicals there in indiana known as deep conservative state. and rafael cruz who is the father of ted cruz is really reaching out to that crowd and saying i'm for every -- i'm imploring every member of the body of christ to vote for my son. i think we have a sound bite and i want to get your reaction. >> i implore, i exhort every member of the body of christ to vote according to the word of god and vote for the candidate that stands on the word of god and on the constitution of the united states of america. and i am convinced that man is my son ted cruz. the alternative could be the destruction of america. >> does that resonate with the folks here in indiana? >> i think it's a disgrace that he's allowed to do it. i think it's a disgrace that he's allowed to say it. you know, i'm backed by -- you look at jerry falwell jr., look at so many of the ministers that are backing my and they're
backing me more so than cruz. i'm winning the evangelical vote. it's disgraceful that his father can go out and do that. and just -- so many people are angry about it.
and the evangelicals are angry about it the way he does that. you know, there's a whole thing and, you know, his father was with lee harvey oswald prior to oswald's being -- you know, shot. i mean, the whole thing is ridiculous. what is this, right prior to his being shot, and nobody brings it up. they don't even talk about that. that was reported and nobody talks about it. but i think it's horrible. i think it's absolutely horrible that a man can go and do that. what he's saying there. >> right. there was a picture out there that reportedly shows rafael cruz standing with lee harvey oswald -- >> what was he doing with lee harry oswald shortly before the death, before the shooting? it's horrible. >> well, one thing i don't think you think is horrible is rasmussen came out with a poll, the presumptive nominee seems to
be hillary clinton and you. if things are to stay the same after today and you both stay on a roll, you'll be head to head shortly. and right now, rasmussen in terms of a popular poll has you up by two points. that is dramatic shift. what's behind that? i know you're happy about the number. but what do you think the reason is? >> well, because number one, people are listening to me, they're listening to me on the military, they're listening to me on my policies on china and all of these countries that are just killing the united states. they're taking their jobs. people haven't had a pay increase in many, many years as we discussed. i mean, effectively they're making less now than they made 18 years ago. and we're losing our jobs. look at indiana where carrier is leaving for mexico. carrier air conditioning corporation, leaving for mexico. i have been talking about it for months and it's a disgrace. they're going to go to mexico. they'll make equipment, sell it back into the united states. there won't be any tax to pay, there's nothing and we're losing our jobs. our manufacturing is way down. so i'm not surprised to see this
poll. i'll beat hillary. cruz can't beat hillary. don't forget, i beat her with all the negative ads they're doing. if kasich ever had a negative ad, he'd drop like a rock and the same thing frankly with cruz. you see the negative ads in indiana and they're all -- i mean, they're lies these ads. it's horrible they can do it but they do it. hopefully we'll make america great again. our whole concept and theme is to make america great again. and we can do that. >> donald, funny you should mention carrier because i went to the bernie sanders rally last night. and one of the big things he talked about was united technologies pulling their carrier unit out of indianapolis and they're going to go to mexico. so you and bernie are on the same page on that also, regarding hillary clinton, i don't know if you heard the sound bite, donald trump, but she said if given the nod by the american people she's going to bring her husband, bill clinton, out of retirement to help her in the white house.
listen to this. >> i told my husband that if i'm fortunate enough to be president i want him to do nothing but work as hard as he can because he did a pretty good job when he was president. he created a lot of jobs. said i wanted him to really take this on. you'll get sick of seeing him. >> still has some pep in his step. >> yeah, pep in his step. this gets him excited because there's nothing he wants to do more. >> mr. trump, what do you think about that? how big a role do you think bill clinton would have in a hillary clinton white house? >> well, here we go again. if you'll remember all of the scandal that they had, all of the problems with not only monica, that was, you know, one. but whitewater and all of the things that went wrong. it was a mess. you know, a lot of people don't remember, he signed one of the worst economic bills -- probably the worst in the history of this country. it's called nafta. he signed it and nafta has -- it
has drained our country of jobs, it's drained us of manufacturing. you look at indiana, you look at all of these companies that have left. i mean, take a look what's going on with it and it's still to this day just a disaster for the united states. that was a bill -- take a look at new england, the factories there drained of their jobs and their people. and we're going to turn it around. no, the last thing we need now again is the mess we had before with bill clinton and hillary. >> donald trump, i know you always say that america has got to take on china and one of t the -- the president of the united states -- there's an editorial out today, urging the american senate to take up the tpp because china is forming their own regional comprehensive partnership with 13 other nations that includes australia. he said tpp must go forward. to make sure that america isn't holding the bag, but holding the pen. what's your reaction to our tpp
that would take on china as opposed to one -- the regional compact that would be with china? >> tpp is a disaster for our country. it will be worse for our country than nafta was. >> why? >> because it's going to drain our job, take so many out of the country. it will take what we have left after the disaster of nafta. one of the things that they don't even mention in tpp is the devaluation of currency. what they have done to this country through devaluation is disgraceful. we don't even cover it. it's the single biggest tool that the different countries we're talking about. china is not in the tpp but they'll come in at a later date at my opinion if the deal is great and if it's phenomenal for them. they don't talk about devaluation which is the biggest single tool. it is a disaster for our country. and it should not be signed. >> all right, donald trump, thank you for being with uth
