>> and it's not just senator lindsey graham donald trump who is on the phone. donald, you have been very tough over the president with his policy with iraqis and with isis. in fact, let me read your tweet from yesterday in which you said iraqi also never learn to fight if we continue to it bail them out. so what do you mean? >> well, first of all, we have a president that has no clue what he is doing. there is no question about that and all you have to do is look at what has happened in iraq with so-called soldiers. every time we give them $100 million worth of equipment, isis or whoever ends up getting it. so it's a disgrace what's happened. it's a shame that this took place in the first place. now, you know, you have people like jeb bush and rubio saying they didn't even know iraq -- they couldn't answer the question. took them each five days to answer the question as to whether iraq was a good thing or bad thing. i was down and you know this better than anybody, 12 years ago that we shouldn't go into iraq because you totally knock out the balance between iran and iraq. and by doing that, now that

we have totally messed up the middle east and frankly we should have stayed -- once we were in, we had to stay. now that we have totally messed up the balance in the middle east, we have to do something because isis is truly bad. isis is far worse than iraq was ever going to be why have to go in there powerfully and strongly. >> doing what? the president has 15 or so air strikes a day. we have a collision dropping bombs. not much on the boots on the ground giving information to our bombers, you know, what would do you? >> first of all, they have no respect for our president, that's one thing for sure. and i do know what to do and i would know how to bring isis to the table or beyond that defeat isis very quickly. and i'm not going to tell what you it is. you know -- >> -- why won't you tell us? >> i will tell you what because i don't want to, greta. >> why won't you tell? we need all the help we can get. we need a dialogue on. this if i run and i win i

don't want the enemy to know what i'm doing. i don't want the enemy to know what i'm doing. unfortunately i will probably have to tell at some point but there is a med of defeating them quickly and effectively and having total victory. i don't want to be obama where he goes on television to explain exactly when we're going to attack a certain city, what we're going to do, what hour we're going to be using for the attack, how men are going. in i don't want to do that because, you know, the late great general douglass mcarthur and general patten are spinning in their grave how we announce what we're going to do and how we are going to do it. if i run and if i win i don't want the enemy to know what i'm going to do. all i can tell you is it is a full proof way of winning and i'm not talking about what some people would say, but it's a fool proof way of winning the war with isis and it will be absolutely 100% they will let a minimum come to the table and actually they will be

defeated very quickly, very very quickly. >> you tell me if you are running. where do you stand on this and when will you have more information on that. >> our country is a laughing stock. we don't know what we are doing. whether it's our trade with china and mexico. not only is the border killing us, everywhere else including economically. i will be making a decision during the month of june. i think i will surprise a lot of people. every time people think i'm going to run i do great in the polls. i do great in the polls -- nobody thinks i'm running which is an amazing thing. so they don't put me in polls, which is interesting. but, the recent poll that just came out in new hampshire, i'm beating most people and even there, they don't think i'm running. i will tell you i looked at it seriously last time. i will be making a decision during the month of june. we have to bring -- i heard your previous personal, mr. bolton, who i have a lot of respect for by the way talking about an election based on different things. i think this is going to be an election based on competence. i think people are tired, sick and tired of watching

incompetent politicians destroy our country. >> in fact, let me just quote another tweet that you had you're quoting mark twain politicians in diapers must be changed often and for the same reason. that's what you tweeted yesterday. >> mark twain was a very smart man and he got it politicians are all talk, they are no action. they are never going to take this country back. our country is going really bad. we are losing our middle class. we are losing everything. we don't have victoriness this country anymore. when was the last time that you heard that we beat china in trade? we beat mexico? we beat brazil? we beat somebody, anybody? we don't win anything anymore. in terms of our military, which i love and which, believe me, i'm stronger in the military than anybody, but you in terms of our military, it's disgraceful what our president is doing to our military. it's a disgrace. so i'm going to make a decision and i do believe it's a presidency that this time is not going to be a popularity contest. it's going to be based on competence. because the people are sick
