If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck it's a duck.
Less that duck is China.
The Obama administration is refusing to call China a currency manipulator.
Even though it readily admits that China's currency is undervalued it.
To move that has my next -- seeing red.
Donald -- Joining me now on the mr.
trump thank you so much is great to talk to you today always.
What do you make of the decision not to call out China and again dance around the issue.
Well it's inconceivable.
Everybody knows they're a currency manipulator and I made all you have to do is look at the numbers than they've been doing it for years.
We have an administration that's not respected by gender there laughing at us I deal with Chinese all the time very big people.
They tell me they can't believe what they getting away with and then I hear -- -- -- it's incredible actually.
How long does it go along you know what you know what when we're getting -- to raise the debt ceiling and we're north of sixteen trillion dollars in debt and that's it we're borrowing the money from.
Do you have really have a choice at this point.
Well they manipulate they -- to then make up product and make it impossible for our companies to deal against them because frankly.
-- manipulation is so severe it's incredible.
They take our money -- they loan it back to us and we payment dressed and we have a sixteen billion dollars sixty trillion dollar deficit.
The whole thing is absolutely insane and but this administration just say they don't manipulate their currency is absolutely.
It's truly a lie to the American people.
What would you do.
Let's say just at a profit while how do you get -- what and not -- the point that it's dangerous to the country.
Right -- what I do and I stated before and and it would probably would even come to that although I'd like to see attempted that I put it 25% taxable goods coming in from China.
That would do two things that the one which -- making our products and Alabama and Iowa and California and lots of other places.
And also would take it a hell of a lot of money.
But we would we would have it they're gonna make 350.
Trillion dollars I -- they are going to make this year 350.
Billion dollars of this country so somebody say oh you're gonna stop -- there is no free trade did this is -- -- this is stupid on our behalf and we have to stop it.
We have to stop -- it's destroying our country it is totally now not only China if you look at other countries everybody.
Is out dealing the United States.
But China is the number one -- -- Of course OPEC takes the cake but China really is the number -- abuse.
Let's -- an oil let's talk about Iran Iran talking tough about blocking the Strait of Hormuz.
-- -- investor reaction seems to be.
Not taking it very seriously -- US military making comments and we're not elect to do that would do you make of that and we finally may be getting tough with Iran.
Well I think we're not getting tough I think they don't respect us they don't respect our leaders.
And he's not seeing things today that are going against this country it's almost like -- just not a respected nation any longer.
People are doing things countries are doing things their leaders are doing is saying things that they never would have done before.
We just not their -- Really burst rate place anymore.
It's it's really leadership it has to do with leadership we have such unbelievable potential.
Would not living up to it would not -- -- hit and where trouble.
But you keep talking about leadership and -- get we're gearing up we're less than a week.
From the Iowa Caucuses.
Have not throwing your hat in the -- so looking at those candidates looking at who could lead this country.
Who do you live right here right now of the GOP field who's got the mileage out.
Well I can say that it's certainly a -- I mean every week it's somebody else that you look at somebody like Ron Paul who was sparked some concern as a total lack go.
And -- him to be doing so well and I think it's an insult Iowa if he.
Ends up winning I think it's going to be a tremendous himself to Iowa tremendous -- but it.
Take -- a certain prestige to Iowa being first all the time and so I think that would be a tremendous mistake.
I think husband's policy and he's studied and registry extolled by don't think it's relevant but -- -- policy on China is absolutely ridiculous you want to give our.
Literally give our country -- that Janet and I think it's absolutely ridiculous.
And I see some other things that aren't good I I was very.
I mean look obviously I'm very interested in the top two candidates.
I don't both very well they're both very good -- I was surprised that in Virginia that.
You didn't get on the ballot you know -- it is surprising.
That's the bad at the -- what for him and it's going to be interesting to see however how it all plays it's going to be.
Very interesting things can change but it looks like it's really between those two right now.
He won't get behind one of the guys we clearly know -- you don't like.
And you were bothered by -- what happened in Virginia but you won't get behind Mitt Romney at this point is -- -- -- Well at some point I'm gonna make a statement and I'll make that statement it up it'll be -- strong statement but.
I'm not really prepared to do it quite.
Okay what about Gary Johnson Gary Johnson is now will run as a libertarian not as a Republican and for the presidents saying.
Our -- are you still it in your mind.
You you're registered independent now what are your plans what what is your time frame he said you're gonna make a statement at some point.
Are you -- rolled -- out running.
But they -- up watching what's happening with the Republican Party we're -- -- who rounds witness to who gets the nomination.
We're going to see how that person does and it'll be very interesting to -- but.
If they picked the wrong person that if the economy continues to be added do badly which I believe -- well.
And then I will make -- decision that -- might be a very surprising decision to a lot of people.
If they pick Mitt -- day will you be happy with that.
Why don't wanna stay yet it's too soon and I'm still studying it and I'm still -- again I don't well and we've become very friendly and I liked him but we're really watching to see what happens what watching to see who is ultimately picked it.
You know what you look at what's happening words like DeLia is everywhere and you know every week somebody else's rises up.
I guess we probably have a long way to go but it would certainly seem to be nude and -- Donald it was great to talk to you mr.
trump thank you so much thank you dig at Donald -- The man.
Are at the --
