tv Key Capitol Hill Hearings CSPAN August 15, 2015 6:00am-7:01am EDT
should know who is contribute in. don't forget, while i am friends with citizen united, and i think the head is a great guy, that doesn't help because i'm spending my own money. on a personal basis, i don't love it. i think there should be better transparency and i think when the money comes in, you should be able to use it to do what you want because that is what they do anyway. everybody does it, unfortunately, not us, because i am not doing it. these candidates are doing it illegally because they are telling the people that are running the packs exactly what to do. if anybody thinks they are not, they are children. i will be doing jury duty on monday morning. can you believe it? i knew you would ask me that question. in new york city. i don't know. it's one of the courts. i am looking forward to it. i think it's fun. thank you very much. i will see you. are we giving helicopter ride? i think so. i hope so, to the kids. thank you.
>> mr. trump will join us momentarily. it's the largest crowd the facility has ever seen with an overflow capacity, thousands of people inside and out. please welcome, the next president of the united states, donald j. trump. [applause] ♪ try to believe when the going gets rough that you have to hang tough to make it history repeats itself never doubt that you are the one and you can have your dream. ♪ mr. trump: beautiful. so nice.
[applause] they say we set a record tonight. [applause] i am going to make the people outside angry. they love me. i love them. we have over 1000 people outside. hundreds in the second auditorium. you people got the good real estate. [applause] this has been an amazing time. i know it is very early. the polls have been through the roof. every one of them. [applause] because, i don't know if it is me or the message, or a combination, but i brought back a term that hasn't been used in a long time for the silent majority. there is a tremendous silent majority that politicians have
taken advantage of. they have taken advantage of the people of this country long enough. largely incompetent except when it comes to getting reelected. that is what they do. i have contributed to everybody. who knows them better than me? they are great at one thing. don't make waves, surf it out. get reelected again. i have been watching it for so many years. i personally am sick and tired of it. [applause] backstage i met some of the vets. the greatest people we have in this country. [applause] they have been mistreated. they have been treated like third class citizens. it is going to stop. [applause] you look at the senators and the
congressmen. they ride around like kings. they think isn't that great? they make speeches. nothing happens. two weeks ago, they had the longest waits in reception rooms and reception areas in the history of the veterans administration. people waiting three days, four days, five days to see a doctor. we are going to straighten that. it is called management.
that is all it is. [applause] the military is going to be so strong in this country. [applause] nobody is going to mess around with the united states. that i can tell you. nobody. [applause] over the last few weeks, jeb bush -- [booing] in favor of common core, weak on military. but the iraq war was a good thing. i'm the most militaristic person in this room but you have to know when to use it. think about it. we spent $2 trillion in iraq. china is taking the oil.
isis may have it and iran may have it but china is taking the oil. can you imagine? we never do anything right with china. we spent $2 trillion, thousands of lives of great people, mostly young, beautiful people, wounded warriors who i love all over the place, not treated properly by the way. [applause] and we have nothing.
iran is taking over iraq. the parts they want to give up, they are giving oil to isis. isis has the oil. you remember when i said you shouldn't go in. reuters wrote an article in 2004 that trump, don't go in. you're going to ruin the balance. iran and iraq were the same. twins. they have wars for years. one goes this way, one goes that way. if you take out one, the other is going to take over. we took out one and look at the
mess we have. we have destabilized the middle east and it is a mess. [applause] jeb bush couldn't -- he didn't know the difference. he couldn't answer a question, was iraq a good thing or bad thing? finally after going to his pollster, after five days he said it was a bad thing. that's ok. the other day i'm watching. he is saying we got saddam hussein out, didn't we? i'm not a fan of saddam hussein, but he ran the place, and he had no weapons of mass destruction. now instead of saddam hussein we are far more brutal. we have isis. we will have iran. they are making deals. the leaders of iraq are visiting the leaders of iran. what do we get out of this? we have stupid leadership. [applause] i didn't to want to go in but i was right. it was bad. at some point we have to go out. we have to rebuild this country. we have to rebuild our country. we have to. our bridges are falling apart.
our roads are a mess. our schools, our highways. everything. who is better at infrastructure than trump? [applause] they talked about the surge. bush's brother said the war is over. two days later the was a disaster. obama said that with yemen. he announced yemen was a victory. then three months later it was a disaster. we don't have yemen. we don't have anything. we send over to our allies, if you call them that, there's no word for them. iraq isn't a country. it is a corrupt people that string something together. it is not a country. we send over to our allies 2500 humvees. so when i heard 2500 i thought it was a typo in the new york times. they mean 25. they mean 2.5. they mean 250, maybe. 2500 humvees, armor plated. when the bombs go off you don't lose your legs and your life in your arms. great vehicles. one shot is fired and these guys run away and the enemy picks up
2500. think of it. we need the right thinking. i said, what a terrible statement he made because when we had to leave, you can talk about surging but at some point we have to leave, we can't stay there forever. we would loosen up these rules. we have so much oil under our own feet we don't need them for those things because of new technologies. [applause] so, we leave and i say leave but take the oil. did anyone ever hear me say that? take the oil. i watch these guys on television, political people, many of them with the administration. i think they mean well. they don't have a clue. they say isn't that silly? he says take the oil. you know where is the oil now? iran and isis. everybody has it but us. [laughter] it is hard to believe.
we need general douglas macarthur. i thought he was great. the highest academic. i went to a really good school, you had to be smart to get in. that was before i was trump. but you have to be really smart. that is the hardest one. even then, by the way. general douglas macarthur to this day was the greatest students in the history of west point plus he had the look, he had the whole deal. he was a general. i don't see it now so much. i don't want to knock the generals but i see some of these guys. can we defeat isis? i don't think so. i don't want to use names. [laughter]
then you have general george patton. [applause] do you think general patton, when president obama said we were going to attack a certain city and he said in two weeks we are going to attack this city, and we're going to attack from the front, and we want to use drones. the enemy is saying -- it is brutal. it turned out to be a brutal situation. i said that is great. that is camouflage. what a smart thing he is doing. he is probably going to do the opposite. it was the craziest thing i've
ever seen. something that should have taken 24 hours, it was months. i wonder what general macarthur and general patton are doing now in their graves? spinning. saying i don't believe it. i don't believe it. we have such a great country but we have gone down so far. china yesterday, i'm big in the world of financial, cnn did a poll, i was through the roof on the economy. i have to be accurate because
otherwise they will have a front page story that i was false. i was many times over number two. it is a pretty important subject. leadership. i killed everybody on leadership. i did great on the military. i think the military would be just as good as the economic for me personally. these poor people. i would be creating things that nobody would be playing with us. nobody. nobody. [applause] i don't necessarily mean soldiers. we love our soldiers but i mean, we have weaponry that is
obsolete. nuclear weapons. 60 minutes does a show, they show how bad a condition our nuclear weapons are in. did anybody see that? can you -- even if it is true, we are putting this for the world to see. the reason they did that is the president wanted the press to see how weak our nuclear capabilities were. the telephones don't work. they have wires. the wires were rotting. to work the telephones, the silos were rusting and rotting. the kids said we don't know if they work. great. [laughter]
they are screaming over the phone because the wires are so damaged and old. this is our nuclear. assuming it is true, who the hell would show that to the enemy? the reason he did was because he wants funding. we have to get smart people, tough people. china. they did the largest devaluation in the history of china. they think the history but they say only the last two decades. now i feel better. they brought it down to two decades. in other words, 20 years. ok. what that means is, you hear the sucking sound. jobs. that means money. that means all of this coming out.
they did a number on us. when they did the last one which wasn't long ago, it was a much more modest devaluation, i said i can't believe obama is allowing this to happen. we have all the cards. i told the press it is the greatest theft in the history of the united states, what china has done. we have rebuilt china. our money has rebuilt china. [applause] you go over to china, bridges are being built all over the place that make the george washington bridge and other bridges look small.
i am not using the george washington bridge for political purposes. i wouldn't do that. it makes it look small time. massive highways, massive roads. i was in dubai. great place for they have an airport, it is like magic. the most incredible thing you have ever seen. you go to qatar, you go to all these places. we land at kennedy where they have hangers that are falling down, rotting and rusting. it is such a shock. we go to kennedy. you get used to things. when your house gets dirty. these are so bad, these airlines are so sad. you look at the age of our infrastructure. look at all of the different things. even the airplanes. they like qatar. they asked me to go to a dinner and i said i can't. they said we will pay you a lot of money. it was a lot of money to have a dinner. like a tremendous amount of money. i said i'll go.
[laughter] you have to understand. you can be really rich, but if you're going to get hundreds of thousands of dollars to have a dinner two blocks from your house and you don't do it it is time to retire. do you agree? i went. it was so amazing. i said to the man of the airline, what is the average age of your planes? he said about a year and a half. the average age of some of our airlines, 32 years. 15 years pre-28 years. and you see it. i said how do you finance your planes. he looked at me like finance? we don't finance. we pay cash. saudi arabia. i was impressed. it wasn't a question. when i went to qatar, i went into an airline terminal that was the most beautiful terminal i have ever seen. the most magnificent. they had lounges, they had spas. before you get on the plane you can get a massage. i'm not into that though. i don't like people touching me. [laughter] it's true. they have these magnificent spas. i said this is the most beautiful airline terminal i've ever seen. he said no. this is temporary. our new one is being built over there. there must have been 40 cranes. this was a tear down. we are doing it wrong. saudi arabia, i have good relationships with saudi arabia and mexico, as i do with everybody. they pay millions of dollars. am i supposed to dislike them? china. i sell apartments for $18 million. some of the cheap ones are $10 million. i don't even bother to sign those contracts. i get it from saudi arabia. from japan.
from everybody. i love these people. the problem is mexico, i love the mexican people. they have tremendous spirit. when i opened, trump has taken more income than any human being i've ever seen. the press changed my statement. they used half a sentence. it turned out i was right. i was talking about illegal immigration. it turned out that i was right. when you look at saudi arabia, when you look at mexico, they are taking over. nabisco is closing a factory in chicago. they are moving to mexico. this big factory. 1200 jobs going to be lost in chicago. no more orioles. oreos. they announced. they are doing other things. it is great. mexico. if you can get away with it it is great. i have such respect for the leaders of mexico and their negotiators. i don't dislike them. the biggest bank in the world is a tenant in one of my buildings. it is an incredible bank. citibank is a tiny subsidiary compared to it. i never have to worry about the rent. i love these people. apartments. with mexico i have hired thousands over the years, thousands from mexico and lots of other places. the problem is, their leaders are smarter and sharper, and more cunning. they are much more cunning. the word cunning is important. they know what is going on. they are whipping us left and right. all of these countries. i could mention 100. we don't make good deals anymore.
one of our great dealmakers, carl icahn. i had dinner with him and said carl, if i do this, and i'm doing well, are we leading in every single poll? [applause] and it is the talk of politics. it is a great honor. we have to get there. i was called by one of the biggest journalists in the world. he said mr. trump, could i ask you a question? how does it feel? how does what feel? >> he have done something that nobody else has ever done. you have taken over television, the airways. it is the summer of trump. they are calling it the summer of trump. [applause] this is a highly respected guy. i said i haven't done anything. i haven't won. it starts with one in the primaries than going on and winning. i consider it a waste of time. he said you are wrong. you have done a great thing. i won't be happy. but we are all doing well. think of this. if you look at saudi arabia, and they make a billion dollars a day. a billion dollars a day.
ok. when they have a problem we send over ships and planes. i don't mind doing that. they have to help us out. they have nothing but money. they are wonderful. i love their investing in the united states great i love their investing in new york. they have to help us. we are a debtor nation. $19 trillion. massive unfunded liabilities. we are a nation that is in serious trouble and it is going up rapidly. obamacare is a disaster. a catastrophe. [applause] it has got to be repealed and replaced. your premiums. they have gone up. your deductibles are through the roof. unless you're hit by a tractor.
it is true. the reason i mention tractors, japan has a great leader. abe. our negotiator is carolyn kennedy. she got the job by going into the white house and saying i have nothing to do. she's a nice person. my daughter likes her. my daughter is great. my daughter likes her. she said she is a nice person. we are tired of the nice people. mr. trump, a woman who was a fan, i don't know if of the personality to get elected. you are not a nice person. actually i am a nice person. i love helping people. you watch. i will help on women's health
issues more than anybody including the democratic side. you watch. you watch. he said i don't want to fund women's health issues. that is worse than romney's 47% which is probably why he lost the election. he forgot to go on television for three weeks. we have to do something, and we have to do it fast. if we don't do it fast, we are not going to have a country. speaking of that, speaking of that, i have a great review on a speech the other night. he speaks through his applause. i do have time to wait for the applause. i want to just do it. he said he's a great speaker. he does beautifully. he is not scripted. supposing i was reading this stuff. but the teleprompters. if you're running for president you not be allowed to use a teleprompter. it is true. [applause] it is so easy.
you walk up, ladies and gentlemen hello. [laughter] [applause] no, no. you should not be allowed. you don't know what you're going to get. obama is a teleprompter god. it is true. you don't want a scripted president. you don't want a politically correct president. it takes too much. [applause] it takes too much time.
it is true. it is true. you don't want this political correctness. there is a certain college. they don't want you to differentiate between a man and a woman. you heard about this one. i'm gone. that is too much. the things that are happening are crazy. you have probably heard about the debate we just had recently. if i were politically correct during that debate i would have gotten clobbered. we won the debate. after the debate all the poll
numbers went up was that a howl of the time? was that incredible? that debate has always had 2 million people. the first debate every four years. 24 million people. probably going to go up higher when the final numbers come in. do you think they were there for jeb bush or rand paul? rand, i've had you up to here. it is funny. rand paul -- sit down. i will ask you a question. that is ok. i have seen his face before. one among one to do, not take his question? wait. he has been hitting me because his polls are going down. he is weak on military. can you imagine today being weak on military? now he has become worse than me. he has become this total hawk.
that is good. rand paul is weak on the military. he is weak on immigration. he has no numbers. all of a sudden i see him. he called me up and said -- he wants to play a round of golf. don't tell me. i'm a good golfer. i killed him. if i didn't i wouldn't say it. he said to you think you could do me a favor. could you contribute to my eye center? i said what do you do. i just gave him a lot of money. all of a sudden i see him chirping on the stage. who is that over there, that person? who is he? now he is going around saying bad things.
whatever. the beauty is this. nobody ever attacked me like senator lindsey graham. he went from 1% to nothing. [applause] it is true. nobody ever attacked me like parry, of texas. who did a lousy job at the border. he was governor and he keeps talking about the border. why did you fix it? the new governor is doing better but we won't say that. he's actually a nice man. he didn't like it when i said you have to pass an iq test to come on the stage. he said to me, donald trump is keeping a senator, a failed senator, off the stage.
went to the best schools, great student. made a fortune. did the apprentice, one of the most successful shows on television. nbc renewed it. nbc renewed it, came to my office and said please do it. i want to make this country great again. we are going to make the country great. [applause] i wrote many bestsellers including trump, the art of the deal, the number one selling business book of all time. he's got it. the other night i said my second favorite book. my first favorite. the bible. i did not ask him to stand up. i got my biggest him the other night when i said that. i said my favorite book is the bible. my second favorite book is "the art of the deal." but anyway, so, these people they went down.
so, now i have, i have a new guy coming. it's rand paul. carly was nasty to me. the careful, carly. i cannot say anything to her because she was a woman and i do not want to be accused of being tough on a woman. i cannot do that. women, am i allowed to fight back? am i allowed? she has been nasty to me. so i promised i would not say -- i said to myself. i promised i would not say that she ran hewlett packard into the ground. i said i would not say that her stock value tanked. she laid off tens of thousands of people. she got viciously fired.
i said i will not say that. she then went out and ran against barbara boxer for the united states senate in california. a race that should've been won and she lost in the landslide. i said, i will not say that, ok? all right? so i am not going to say it. so our country has tremendous potential. we have to take back our jobs from china and all of the other people. we have to renegotiate our trade deals by getting people like carl icahn. we have the greatest dealmakers in the world. carl is very busy. i called him, he said, you are doing great. tough guy. every poll, you are doing amazing. just relax. if i win, you take china. i'll get somebody else to take this one. we will have our best. these people. carl is a nice guy. some of them are not nice. some are horrible human beings but they are the greatest in the
world. do we want nice people or do we want these horrible human beings negotiating? horrible. i want the horrible ones. we will make great trade deals. we will save social security without cuts. we will come up with health care plans that will be phenomenal, phenomenal. that will be less expensive. we have to get rid of the artificial circles. i call them the insurance company circles. you know what i mean. we have to get rid of the artificial circles wrapping around the states all paid for by your local insurance companies. because they have monopolies. i have a huge company. if i'm in new york, i get no bids. i get one bid. i go to new jersey. i go to california. i go to florida. there's no bids.
because they have monopoly. so, they would rather have monopoly than be able to negotiate all over the country. they would rather have new york sewed up than have competition with a have to go and work for their money. that is over. that's over. that's over. [applause] and you have phenomenal plants -- for much less money. insurance companies will not be happy but you have to -- they give to jeb. they give to hillary. they get to everybody. i do not want their money. i was called today by the
biggest lobbyist. he said, donald, i would love to make a major contribution to your campaign. i do not want your money. no, you do not understand. it was like he never heard this before. he said, i want to get $4 million. you are leading in all the polls. they have to protect, trump wins, they have got to protect themselves. i said, you are front a month or it i do not want your money. because what he is going to do is if i win and when one of his companies has a problem, i'm going to do what is right for the people of the country. [applause]
i'm not going to do what is right for him and his people. so you have the special interest people and you have the donors. i will tell you nobody is going to control us. we are going to work this together and make it so strong and so great. i use the concept of the ford plant built in mexico. we want it built in michigan. we want it built in new hampshire. we want it built in iowa. how does it help us? how does it help us? you go to the great business schools and you do really well and then you come home and say, let's figure this out. they're going to spend $2.5
billion building a plant in mexico. they're going to make cars, tracks and parts and ship it back to the united states. how does that help us? we get no tax. so, when jeb becomes president, if that ever happens, or when hillary, if that ever happens, or when -- [crowd booing] hey, it can happen, folks. i think it is unlikely but if jeb became president, when they say mr. president, it is very bad that ford is building in mexico. ok, we will do something. let me go to sleep first. we will do something about it. as soon as he says we will do something, he is not stupid. the lobbyists will call him. they gave them some of this $114 million. and the special interest. we have stock in ford. we want ford to do what they want. and the lobbyists will go up to him and say, mr. president, you cannot do this. these people gave you $2 million. that's right. and they will build happily and they will have a nice plant and we will lose thousands of jobs. terrible. what i say is different.
they will call me to but i would not even take their call. some of them are actually nice guys. i'll say no. by the way, i hope the press calls carl icahn. he's wealthy. they all want to do it. a guy like carl icahn is worth many billions of dollars. he wants to do it. it's more important to him -- he does not know -- how many deals can you do? the great deal is this country. we have to make this country rich. and then we have got to make it great. [applause] and i said the same thing to others. they come to trump, i would not call any of these guys because they are too easy. he woke me up, mr. president, we really want to build this plan to mexico. i said, congratulations but you're not going to do it. that's ok. that we are going to charge to charge you a 35% tax on every car and truck and part that comes into our country.
every single one. 35%. he says, you cannot do that or trust me. i can do it. what happens it's probably they fold before 5:00. it could be they will play tough and wait until the next day. i say they fold before 5:00. the reason i would not waste the time of the killers i told you about, the great negotiators because this is too easy. this is a couple of phone calls. so, what happens now is the next day they will call up. and they will say, please. i say, no, i want you building in the united states. that is the way it is. and they will say, mr. president, we are building our plant in the united states. it's that simple. it's that simple. who would let nabisco go to mexico? who would let these car companies -- in tennessee they were respecting a great deal
with a major foreign car company. built in tennessee. going to be built in tennessee. going to be a great deal. at the last moment, they announced they are not going to do it in tennessee. they will do it in mexico. who would allow that to happen? >> obama. mr. trump: you are right about that. it will not happen with trump. believe me. with trump, it won't happen. this guy -- i hope this question is worth it. this guy has been standing up for the entire thing. i hope it will be a good question. go ahead. >> 30 years, i've had threats on my life -- and fox hasn't touched this. i have been in touch with kelly, too. mr. trump: come on. got to go. go ahead. >> there's counterfeit substandard parts and most of the nuclear plants -- mr. trump: in nuclear plants in the united states. i'm not surprised to hear that. >> and some of them have come from china. when i brought this out the nrc, nuclear regulatory commission, accused me of conspiring to topple their agency, had me in federal court for six years. now, right now you could do something for the state of massachusetts and new hampshire. i just got back from chattanooga, too. marines there.
the security -- mr. trump: did i do the right thing? by the way, he happens to be right. you do not even have to tell me. i guarantee you that they have substandard parts in nuclear and airplanes, because they get them from china. what you get from china, you do not know what the hell you are getting. finish your question fast. the the security -- >> the seabrook nuclear plant is empty now and the nrc said it is not required. ok? now, i got involved because i am in the nursing home profession. mr. trump: i got to go. >> wait a minute. let me finish this. mr. trump: i think your question is great. he is talking about counterfeit parts, to cut to the chase. we do not have to know what -- that you are in the nursing home business. are you trying to talk to some of us about joining her home? we think your point is good. give it to him. good. i'll read it tonight around 1:00
in the morning instead of sleeping. it's good. go, sit. come on, come on. let's go. what a nice guy, right? hey, he means well. honestly, he means well. you do. stand up. you stand up. this guy i love. tell me, how bad are the vets being treated? >> you understand. way worse than we understand. with 8000 veterans a year that cannot get access to care. let me put this in context. 8000 veterans are committing suicide because of the incompetence and the corruption going on in the v.a. system. those are just the ones committing suicide. put this in context, that is the equivalent of a world war ii baton death march every year. mr. trump: thank you so much. this is unbelievable. >> 47,000 veterans -- for all kinds of other reasons. no one is being indicted. no one is going to jail. they have been proven to cover
it up. he just lost his job recently. when you are president, can i have your word that you will bring in the fbi and start investigating this v.a.? [applause] mr. trump: it can't be. great question. it cannot be just incompetence. because it is so bad what is happening to the vets and the v.a. it is so bad that it cannot be just incompetence. it is got to be theft and a lot more than what we are hearing about. so i would do that. thank you. [applause] go ahead. come on. >> i have to fight for this because my son is an active duty gunny sergeant in the marine corps. i will not let him walk into this nightmare like i did.
mr. trump: ok. i love it. thank you. [applause] go ahead. let's take. who wants to leave? does anybody want to wait? >> no! mr. trump: i have all night. >> do you think you can fire some of these federal employees at the v.a.? mr. trump: how about the epa? how about our common core folks in washington? how about common core in washington? right. good question. yes, sir. young guy here. >> i'm a nasa space technology research fellow at the massachusetts institute of technology. mr. trump: my uncle was a professor at mit. >> and harvard medical school. and i am a graduate of winnacunnet -- mr. trump: he is a smart guy. go ahead. >> when you announced you were going to run for president you
said that america needs victories again. mr. trump: we have no victories. when did we beat somebody in trade? we do not beat anybody. >> in my industry -- mr. trump: we are going to have so many victories -- you watch. go ahead. >> in my industry, one of my biggest victories was putting a man on the moon. what do you think about putting humans on mars? mr. trump: honestly, i think it is wonderful. i want to inbuilt -- rebuild our infrastructure first. i think it is wonderful. go ahead. yeah? go ahead. wait for that mic. go ahead. just shout. >> i have been a caregiver for 10 years. my mother has alzheimer's disease. my husband has alzheimer's disease.
it receives $600 million from nih, while we are spending $153 billion in medicare and medicaid. what will you do to ensure that this devastating disease is a top priority? mr. trump: i have so many friends whose family is devastated by alzheimer's. we can get an answer. there are some answers. we've made les projects -- less progress the with hope. yes, ma'am. yes? [indiscernible] i wondered you might speak from the heart and tell us what is
endearing new hampshire to you? mr. trump: the people. honestly, i have had such a great response. somebody, one of my friends, thank you. one of my friends was asking me what was it like? i have been here a lot. we have done so many town halls and so different meetings. we are having so many people we need -- which worked out well. i am going to go see the other auditory where they did not have the great real estate. i'm going to see the people outside that are waiting to see us. [applause] but the people of new hampshire are amazing. they're like the people that built this country. they work hard. they are smart, industrious, and they love this country. they want to see it happen. they are great people. i was so honored, because recently everybody said that a walker would win iowa. and bush, who's falling like a stone, because he's -- tell me is that really so -- that is from a different planet,
right? i do not get it. but they said bush he's being down big. and walker, you have to remember walker grew up a little in iowa. became the governor of the adjoining state. they have massive deficits. they have very poor employment, new jobs. they have a lot of dissension. a lot of problems in wisconsin which is a state i love. but they have a lot of promise with her education. and with their debt. they are putting up tremendous debt. i was very nice to walker. i gave him money for his campaign. i get to anybody. i give a lot of money. he came up to see me six month ago. he gave me a plaque. you need some money? [laughter] but he gave me a plaque. it was very nice. and then i was very nice to him. i cannot be mean to someone -- there are couple of guys running that have been so nice to me. i want to.
one of his underlings said something nasty about me. i said, finally i can talk about wisconsin. it was so good. he plunged in iowa. and i am leading iowa big. we are leading new hampshire big. you know, we are leading nevada big. what i loved about nevada. they did a second part at the poll. it came out last week. everybody was in shock. i was not because i will bring jobs back into this country. i was leading all candidates in the hispanic vote. everybody was surprised. why? i employ thousands and thousands of hispanics. they are amazing people but people were surprised to see that. north carolina we are leading by massive numbers. south carolina. we are leading everywhere. a poll came out 32% nationwide. another one 24%, fox.
people are tired of what is happening to our country. they are tired of being ripped off by everybody in the world. they are tired of it. you know -- [applause] the american dream, we talk about it. and i used the expression a lot -- the american dream. look at all those cameras blazing back there. this is live all over the place. on fox, on cnn. i get up and i speak from the heart. i really do. look, there is nothing. i speak from the heart. but -- but a big portion, not all of it, but a big portion of the media, the political media is so dishonest. they are really dishonest people. you probably heard me say i always say i like to save the american dream is dead but i'm going to make it bigger and better and stronger than ever
before, ok? i say it all the time. the american dream is dead but i'm going to make a bigger, better, storm of it ever. so i go home a month ago. my wife some is speaking on television. and she said, darling, that was such a horrible thing you said. it was so nasty. i said, what did i say? you said the american dream is dead. i said it is dead, but we are going to make a great. so i turn on television. i turn on television and i see it. it says, the american dream is dead. period. i said, that is terrible. it is dishonest. but the fact is, a lot of people think it is dead. and it has got a lot of problems, no question about it. but we are going to make our country great again. we are going to do things with our country -- [applause] that are going to be so good and so smart and so spectacular. and we going to be respected by the world again and not laughed it like we are all a bunch of stupid people.
it is not going to go on any longer. we are not going to take it any longer. we are going to make america great again. thank you, and i love you, people. i love you people. thank you. thank you very much. thank you, thank you. thank you. ♪ we're not gonna take it no, we ain't gonna take it we're not gonna take it anymore ♪
