he hasn't changed since second grade. keep that in mind as you hear about some of the things that he did, such as throwing rocks at a toddler in the yard right across from his own home, pulling the pigtails of one of his classmates, getting into a physical altercation with a teacher that led to his father removing him from school and sending him off to a military boarding school. >> in one of your interviews he admits he gave his music teacher a blank black eye? >> it's possible that is a bit exaggerated but the got into an altercation there and says he was a rambunctious kind of a kit. people around him saw him as rough, really. >> the relationship with his father who was a very successful developer in new york, particularly in queens and staten island. trump, ultimately, took that business into manhattan. can you talk about that
8:06 am
relationship and that shift and what it seems to have symbolized? >> i left brooklyn and queens and came to manhattan. his father never be a nothing in life. he had an own it's on his shoulder he would be great at something and put his names on buildings and exactly what he did. however, his father told him don't go deeply into debt. donald trump said he is the king of debt so he did not follow his father's advice on that. in fact, his father had to bail him out numerous times and give him or loan him money. >> when he moved into manhattan, that also was a turning point in some ways because he was then sued by the justice department, correct? >> that's right. the justice department sued donald trump and his father by name for not renting to blacks at their properties in queens and brooklyn. this was one of the largest racial bias cases of its time. donald trump had to decide whether to fight this case or to settle. one night, he was in a nightclub in maents and he walks in there and lo and behold there is

named roy cone there who was the lawyer for joseph mccarthy. they got to talking and roy cone said don't settle this case, fight like hell against the government and when they hit you, hit back ten times harder. trump decided to that and he did have to settle the case but he kept that philosophy today hitting back and hitting back ten times harder. >> what is donald trump's reaction to this book now? >> we don't know. ahead of time, he told us repeatedly he wanted a true, accurate fair book which was exactly our intent but warned us again and again he would sue us and he has sued people in the past when they have written about him and what tends to trigger his lawsuits is anyone who questions just how rich he really is. so he gives all kinds of numbers about how rich he is. $10 billion, $12 billion. >> what do you think the real number is? >> we don't know the exact number but good reason to believe it's considerably less because he in
8:08 am
he essentially makes it up. what he does he takes the actual value that any accountant would attach to his properties and he adds -- he multiplies that by what he feels in a given day. and so he says, look. my name has value. that's true. his name does have value but he then attaches a number. he says, you know, my name is worth $200 million on this project. or $400 million on that project. he inflates the value. >> you do so much extensive reporting in here too. about how your private life can reveal your public persona. what did he tell you about that? did talk about who is his best friend? >> you know, i asked him about friendships because it's so important when with you think about a president and his character. in donald trump's case, i was stunned when ed, you know what? i don't really have friend in the way that most people do. if you think about friends somebody you go out to dinner with, he said i don't have that. it was a rare, quiet moment he really didn'no
8:09 am
finally, he said it's my kids. if i got in trouble the people i go to help to is my kids. >> you say he changed political parties seven times and his practice of politics was transactional and not ideology cal. what is his ideology? >> he said last week i don't want to pivot because people need to see who i am. he spent a life practicing the pivot. he has changed parties and been a republican and a democrat, another party candidate and then again a republican and changed positions on many issues. on immigration when he talked about recently, he had said that romney's plan to self-deport was crazy and he criticized romney for losing the hispanic vote. now he has talked about forcing deportation and then yesterday, talk about he is going back to something that mitt romney had talked about.
8:10 am
out. >> one last quick question. what does he read? >> nothing much, really. i asked him about, you know, are you preparing to be president by reading biographies of the great presidents? he said i always wanted to read a biography of a president and never had the time. when you go into it, it turns out he doesn't read books really at all which is rather unique in the history of american presidential candidates. >> marc fisher and michael kranish, thank you so much. their book goes on sale tomorrow. boston says no to olympics but the l.a. is ready to play. ben tracy has that report coming up. city of
