Trump Donald welcome back -- get a great weekend good morning.
You want to react to one of the stories we just -- over that ghost flights into small that ridiculous airports.
What I have my own airport story in Palm Beach Palm Beach international airport they're -- spend a billion dollars to build a runway that's not necessary.
And in order to build -- -- they're gonna rip down many many brand new building expensive beautiful buildings.
And even if they wanted to build a -- -- -- which they already really have what that they could just expand but very little -- They could have built it in a different area but they're building -- -- -- area.
That is so insane what they're doing and everybody's laughing at it every its its really sad.
But they've left because of the stupidity.
But they wanna spend over a billion dollars to build a runway that's totally -- necessary.
Well Donald you know this is endemic to the entire process right neither party has cut spending in Washington since the 1950s and we heard Tom -- talk about this He says it's just part of the budgetary process to get these increases every year every year every year.
When you look at the presidential field right now is there anyone out there -- you say you know what -- -- in a Washington that woman gets -- Washington that's the person's gonna cut spending change everything.
Well the -- just seemed to be doing the best I really if you look at Michelle Bachmann has -- really good job it's just just getting yourself into that race she's really big -- she wants to be a big cutter.
She talks about budget -- jokes about not approving the ceiling it's such it's set to -- the ones that we really are stronger and that way and I think that's maybe -- -- didn't work out so well although He really did blow the big question what they most of the question about Romney and -- was assault sport just sitting upstairs He refused they had itself.
You know I think that hurt very badly but they want strong people they want people that are gonna cut that they want people that are gonna make this country great again and you don't have too many up out there that I can tell you it certainly the one that really is that there is the president.
It's interesting because I think with plenty dropping out over the weekend.
It really shows how important your connection with the audience matters.
When you're running for president because most people who are on the Republican side and probably -- Green with his policies.
It's just set for whatever reason they find something more charismatic.
About those people they do better would you agree with that assessment.
Well I would he'd never hit the court you know this is different -- aides say Kate Abraham Lincoln could never ever have been elected because you know He wasn't supposed to be yet.
Exactly Cary Grant -- -- this is the age of television and you really have to connect and if you're not telegenic unfortunately that's not a good thing that's probably a bad thing to a certain extent.
He -- so many unbelievably capable people but.
Paulette dean never ever connected they want somebody and I'm not sure that's a telegenic and I think He just wasn't giving a tough message.
Now the president is on a three day bus tour is going to Minnesota and go to Iowa today.
One of his themes is he's gonna be tough for Republicans.
-- -- it out -- the people the Republicans are the ones who are in transient.
Mean you are not giving in and allowing things to be all out -- up with your respond well.
My response is that we have a president to -- destroying this nation.
He's putting us in a position where we may never be able to come back if we keep going it is down despair -- You know I look at him campaigning and I look at him getting on a 747.
That is so expensive -- -- all about aircraft.
So expense of the most expensive plane you can get to fly.
And I wonder just -- paid for that up at this campaign or is that being paid for.
No I don't know that it's tax dollars Donald -- -- it's not absolutely horrible.
I think it's or is -- -- -- -- -- jobs the sort of mature Nottingham.
Pain to get -- but He does six stops trying to raise money.
I think what I think -- use -- that's -- for campaigning purposes is a disgrace to this country.
Well you know there's a long history of presidents using in flying in and out of -- the question is whether or not this is actually gonna resonate with the American public is he's heading into the states right now you know Minnesota Illinois and Iowa Donald where.
Independents here it an independent guy.
Right now he's not he's not sitting so well of the independents out there and I was 60%.
Disapproval rating among independents and -- What I can't figure out who the 40%.
That would be to be modestly in favor of I I just don't understand that this country.
It is doing so poorly under his leadership the policies are so bad -- taxing policies are so bad.
It's just right that we don't have it as a country anymore we don't have the leader.
And what He can use a -- like we discussed to go and campaign had raised they say a billion dollars I would put up money to -- campaign it's hard to believe.
Lots of people He has tons of fundraisers -- something that he's really good as -- -- money got to get this question before you go as expected.
After we captured -- laden.
And fortunately one of those choppers from the United States ended up on the property and the -- was not destroyed now Pakistan reportedly giving China our secrets allowing engineers to come in there and take photos.
Of this type of tale that nobody has ever seen before your thoughts.
Well I'm not surprised Pakistan is not a friend that certainly China is not osment.
Pakistan -- billions and billions of dollars robust and it gives us I think it return it.
You look at China and did you realize that we are subsidizing some Chinese educational program yes I mean it's the most incredible thing the way our government is -- we are subsidizing China.
Which is gonna make 300 billion plus -- the United States out here.
Donna -- you said if the right person isn't dominated from the Republican Party you would look and reconsider about jumping in.
We have a Big Three now they're clearly ever merge is the right person in those three.
Well I don't wanna comment yet I have this very good relationship with two -- -- -- but it's just too early for me to comment.
I will say there is that if the right person is not just of this country's.
Gonna have a long hard road believe they.
So -- thrown in the towel just yet Donald Trump always great to talk with -- thanks for joining Gary thank you very much.
All right right eighteen and.
