It's time did -- -- Donald Trump who joins us every Monday at this time we wanted to assert that morning what a big bad -- were just talking about that -- Kelsey -- -- might run for mayor of New York in just think had I -- you have that kind of thought about.
But you are mr.
New York would you ever run for mayor New York.
Now I don't think so I really don't think so it Michael -- doing a really good job but like to keep -- -- put.
I guess that this is about it but.
We have a very good -- New York great.
-- -- Like that that that you didn't bring any speculation that at -- mr.
-- because let's face it you're still keep -- The whole thing open about not running for president and I'm interested in knowing.
How you look at this -- -- deal right now in your reaction to it the first question is if you were a member of congress and not the president would you vote yes for this deal.
Well Percival before -- get to that the country's justice such trouble -- in such a -- and what's happened to this country over the last period of twenty years have not just blaming Obama although he's really exacerbated he's made it worse.
But what's happened to this country over the last period of time it's just unbelievable where people are saying China takes over into what he's sixteen.
And other countries takeover look like a laughingstock throughout the world so it's a very very sad situation.
In terms -- situation is to throw up your great -- judge of character let's see being.
Can grade the players in this drama together let's start with the president how has the president done is He exercised.
Leadership or not.
Well he's missing in action Peter He absolutely is just missing in action He wasn't -- He didn't -- his bills He just followed.
And it only got what you want that He really got something good He got eight tasks on the election of course nothing much is -- up.
Before the election and if you really look back over the last two weeks the one thing He was insistent dog was that.
You don't have a six month deal or one year deals right He wanted to get this -- -- the election.
So -- really had a great victory and I'm shocked.
That the Republicans allowed him to have that victory I think.
The biggest mistake the Republicans -- frankly is allowing him to have that victory because that could lead to -- victory of Obama again although it's they can.
People will -- but also it if you couple that with the fact.
That He appeals to the independence by not raising taxes potentially.
Well He doesn't I don't think He appeals to anybody right now I don't -- that liberals like a good deal but another trip.
I would not be totally surprised I mean it's probably a long -- But if somebody if you look at Obama on Afghanistan and Iraq that's not a liberal.
If you look at Obama and so many other subjects they are very unhappy would have meant I wouldn't be surprised if you remember -- Jimmy -- -- Kennedy did a little.
Number -- what by running I wouldn't be surprised -- some liberal person came out and took a month.
-- you wouldn't you might be right.
But He did want to Jack up taxes on people like -- but that is currently not in the deal.
Outlets covered the big board what about John Boehner -- -- you were highly critical of the process.
Now that -- looks like it's almost in a rear view what sort of a grade would you give this.
I think you really -- to argue really you could -- -- I mean He aged forty years in the period of the last two weeks I think he's.
Yeah yeah we all did you that's true that's actually true and I watched you guys but.
He wanted to -- pitching and really what denied to I have to give them -- effort as far as -- bill itself is concerned.
You know what I had -- discuss where everybody.
I heard five trillion -- -- portrait yet I heard three trillion with the money there's -- chaotic it is very very little chaotic.
Are you still then tell me whether or not -- vote for the deal that's on the table right now.
I probably would not they're too many things in -- that I wouldn't vote for one thing would be -- giving the president a pass -- -- -- get.
You know I I think that's really a mistake that the Republican to make it.
This is almost like a lame duck session where they brought him back to life this is the same kind of that the heroes like a Phoenix.
It was absolutely gotten any -- like a Phoenix they brought him back.
And I think -- bring in -- back again because He.
You've really -- that just does not come due before the election and they allowed him to get his wish of that and I think that was a huge political mistake.
Let's -- up the pack as senators Reid and McConnell did they do themselves a favor.
In this process so they go into the dump -- You know I don't like to that number I think that's a very hard to time and like -- like Boehner had -- really worked hard but what it didn't seem to be working in a spark was the president's actually but it's.
But -- worked hard at Reid McConnell Burton worked very very hard a very difficult situation no doubt.
Yes and what about the Tea Party you know they came to -- -- to shake things up they certainly did that they stood on principle pretty much united.
And after this you've got to figure they are emboldened -- and forward.
Well as you know I've always loved the Tea Party that made people think more than anything else they made people think they did an amazing job they're doing an amazing job and you know I'm -- and they're making people realize that you can't have fifteen trillion dollars in debt this country's in big trouble and they've made people realize it.
You're all right so speaking of where this country is headed according to the national review.
The International Monetary Fund the IMAP is predicting China will be the planet's number one economy.
Can agree with the.
Well I agree it we have current leadership that would happen if we -- proper leadership the Gordon because China is an abuser of our country to manipulate their currency that make -- products they take our jobs.
And we are rebuilding China and yet our schools are like -- our roads are falling apart our bridges -- received bridges being built in China they're building them all over the place.
And they're doing it with our money and I will tell you -- we had proper leadership this year China's going to make.
Billion dollars off the United States let's call it -- 300 billion.
China we are rebuilding China Europe to a smaller -- that.
But believe me if you -- a heavy tax on China could be abused.
And this is -- -- they're manipulating their currency it's impossible to compete -- politicians are much much much broader than our politicians.
And that goes from the top because believe me.
Obama is out of his league compared to the Chinese idea with a Chinese I've been very nicely with the Chinese.
I will tell you he's out of this -- so I agree that that will happen at 2016 unless we have a -- can get some really smart leaders which could happen and it will not happen.
All right -- -- which is every Monday at this time sir thank you very much have fun today -- your empire thank you for everybody needs direct.
