Well as -- my visitors the Donald quickly becoming like Dick Clark every one wants a moment -- -- the -- -- of photo next.
First of course -- -- our calendar and it was one -- -- And just minutes ago apparently it was -- long and now -- for citizens that particular day Donald Trump -- us on the phone just.
And today snap a picture.
Well pictures were snapped but they -- steps privately so letter right time but you don't you'll always get pictures you know that the -- -- -- -- -- -- -- always get the pictures withdraw.
I was -- so I mean obviously all of these candidates like they're -- moment.
What are they ask you when they when they see you.
Well I think they respect my views I think they respect I have a big following of people that are tired of seeing this country being ripped off by other nations like China like OPEC the OPEC nations like so many others even nations that we don't think are ripping -- are -- -- we don't do well with anybody.
We don't make good deals with anybody.
And I'm a big free trade person but I wanted to -- -- fair trade at least break even trade I mean it will reduce for a billion dollars to Columbia what we lose 350 billion dollars to China.
Went and they take our jobs and make our products.
When -- manipulate their currency India.
When we lose with everybody we deal with I think people know that that won't happen with me and I think candidates frankly -- that.
I'm wondering though armed.
You're -- fairly savvy businessmen so you you kind of way.
The -- thousand dollars I guess -- this is -- -- you -- -- -- you know a pretty brutally.
Rick Perry has stumbled in the polls and his recent debate performances.
Have raise questions as to whether he's really up to -- what what do you think.
Well I think -- -- is very very tough on him and some people could say He did OK I don't think He would even agree I don't think He would disagree would affect Teddy didn't have the best of nights certainly I just got back from Australia.
And I watched and it wasn't his best night but.
The fact is that I think the -- -- very very tough on him I was very impressed with that Mitt Romney's performance and a couple of other performances but.
-- you tell Romney that today.
I did not but He was very good -- debate He did a good job by detail actually had a great we've really had a great hour together and to.
He expressed certain killings that.
I didn't even know you know where it was coming from and I wish I was impressed -- certain things He said absolutely.
Because earlier on when you were entertaining running for the white -- yourself.
If you were not impressed with any of these guys Perry was -- a late entry but well.
Never -- -- I said that it just a little bit to world leaders today I mean look.
What I want is great president even if it were Obama I'd love to have Obama -- a great president I'd be very happy.
You know -- -- -- Republican or Democrat doesn't matter I would love to see Obama.
Traditional -- Really strongly and do a great job I don't think that's going to happen Kazaa firstly -- have to do is get rid of obamacare and I don't.
You know I don't see that in the cards that I would be so happy if He carried out to be a great president but he's just not happened.
What about what's going on now with China you've been again at the outs of the year again tonight very critical of the Chinese -- reports now.
That their economy is slowing and that -- and deeper trouble economically than we thought.
Of course they are the gravy train for much of the world whether you agree or disagree would not strong affinity or if they're not -- -- -- The theory is that -- they stumble.
The world just breaks a -- when He.
-- -- we didn't do business with China we beat 350 billion dollars richer this year but the fact is I love free trade -- also -- their trade.
-- stupidity of the people that are making deals with stamps at least.
With respect to this country and -- in many cases because their because the cards are stacked against our corporations.
Act because of their manipulation of currency.
In many -- they left -- our business people.
-- Mention you know Mayor Bloomberg -- -- good delays of them I guess he's ruled out.
A third party run for president I think you'll need an ex president of all of that is not how rich you are but but.
He has been very -- better Chris Christie in New Jersey.
In fact said that He would make.
And paraphrasing here the very credible and impressive run.
For the white house of course governor Christie has said no to that consistently but what do you make of what the -- said that the New Jersey governor.
Present oral mayor Bloomberg's -- great -- his friend of mine.
And second Novo Chris Christie is a great friend of mine also and He is doing a fantastic Japanese -- -- -- a lot of property majors in a very happy with that is the governor to be honest with you I don't think.
That he's going to run.
As He keeps -- it probably strongly as anybody can say it but I don't see him running to be -- and certainly He would be -- formidable candidate.
I don't see it a little bit yellow He has had -- -- -- -- must be attempting movies overtures on Herman Cain and it was gonna meet with you.
In a few days now -- surprise a lot of folks with this Florida -- Republicans that He won handily out of nowhere.
What we can should be very proud of himself he's really doing a good Japanese are good guy people like Camelot I'd like to.
I think he's a really good guy and -- slow to medium -- I think it's a very very tough register.
It became I think that it's going to be very -- -- that's OK I mean.
Life is not easy.
But I think you should be very proud of the job beast and.
Do you ever feel troubled I don't -- you ever in attendance when you ultimately next the White House run that is very very hard.
For a successful businessmen like yourself.
Like Herman Cain.
We -- like Mitt Romney certainly -- years ago.
To translate that into votes this -- director it is is at least.
Well I've always said that it's very hard very very very successful and frankly the more successful the harder it is because the more deals you've done.
The more people perhaps.
Apps you tricked or perhaps you have military depends on the way you do business but I don't is that it's very ineffective as part of my whole thing when I was discussing it and -- about it.
-- would sit very very very difficult for a successful person to run successfully for high political office probably any political office.
You've done hundreds of deals most of them have been good.
You've built up tremendous worth but anything that was slightly off on any deal even the great deals well boy that'd mutation have you look at -- -- -- community -- in his life -- -- -- deal.
Except for his house and that was a scandal.
So He got a house which was a scandal that's the only the only -- and now he's president.
Okay and if you -- you when I was you know I don't -- I -- I went down that avenue I really can't I saw Nancy that's a very executive ask us a just thereabouts I do want to touch on you said you were in Australia and you travel the world a great deal a lot of these global CEOs of them -- -- chatting dollar sank.
You know the whole world's going back -- -- -- a hand basket.
That we could revisit another meltdown that we -- you know -- where a lot worse shape than we were a few years ago.
When we had the last month and what he's.
Well I think that we could have I don't think -- meltdown but I think we could have really another recession -- could be fairly deep recession nobody really knows it's looks like it's 5050 I think it's just sort of gone along a straight line right now I -- status I just I just came back from Sydney Australia and and from Melbourne these are ten -- not real oil cities you know -- lots of the valuable work as the expression -- but these two and Mac Q allegedly.
Clean cities no pot -- beautiful row.
-- it's beautiful highways everything's functioning nicely.
And when you look at this country where the roads -- pulling apart in the bridges are falling apart it's pretty sad so I -- get -- because I've been many Middle Eastern cities where it's amazing comedic have to streets lined with gold but they have oil what you look at Sydney what you look at -- what you see you really well.
And -- in good shape permitted destruction standpoint and this country should.
Sort of action follows I mean He just couldn't -- -- can not continue to be run the way it's right.
Would you want to be any one of these guys Treasury Secretary.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- We are right now fools we are right now being laughed at by China they can't believe I have a lot of friends from China they cannot believe what -- getting away anyway.
Will those negotiations would be a pay per view event on -- -- -- organize -- on.
-- you do very well -- -- thank you very much thank you here again.
