In February of 2009 -- August they had a half year.
Stimulus is in force for a half fear it may issue in their forecasts.
And they credited -- stimulus.
Yet this stimulus gonna and bail everybody out this game is gonna get to four point 3%.
We are at 2.2.
Of what Obama forecast and twenty.
-- and in its 2010 forecasts.
The White House said that it was looking for 3.5.
Percent GDP growth in 2012.
Followed by four point 4% next year and four point 3% and 2014.
Again that we are at 2.2.
Percent economic growth.
In its 2011.
Economic forecast the White House predicted three point 1% growth that -- -- 4% growth this year and four and a half percent growth.
In its most recent forecast.
The White House predicted 3% growth this year and next and then back to 4% after that.
Every -- of Obama.
Has been way wrong they have been predicting.
That a boom is right around the corner.
They make their predictions after of such things as the stimulus.
Or other Obama legislation.
I the American Jobs Act of -- health care bill after much pledges -- they come out that are forecast this is gonna cause a boom.
And all it's doing is destroyed in the US economy.
So what will it take to turn the economy around this is man extraordinary Donald Trump joins us by phone nice -- -- out regretted.
I got until I read a grim news the GDP 2.2 percent we'd hoped that it would be out faster expected that a -- greater rather I'm your thoughts of the 2.2 percent GDP report.
Well Russia's a 100% right -- factor is the report was very bad the economy's not doing well.
If you look at other economies -- doing unbelievably well China is probably going to be close at 10% the real number.
And others are way way up there and a lot of that is at our expense because they're taking our jobs and they're manufacturing our products so you know how do we have a good report.
When things are made for us in other countries.
I would gonna serve up they have 45 point Deb.
Policy had changed that you would make your president to sort of accelerate that -- GDP says more than two point to -- the 45 things he would do.
Well we have to have an energy policy that makes sense we have to let our people derailed because it turns out that we have much more under -- -- did we ever thought possible.
And we have to get away from the grip of OPEC does OPEC destroying -- -- is probably a worse abuses in China that's possible.
The other thing is you have to make.
Deals with China where either they stopped looked -- manipulation of their currency it make it impossible for our people and our companies to compete.
To make it impossible very intelligently for them but not for us.
And it lets you do something about that what do you do when you say if it doesn't stop immediately were dropping a 25% actually your product.
And this is nothing to do is free trade or fair trade -- -- to do with common sense you have to do to stop China.
Terms systematically taking their support.
And basically get us opening of the problems that we're talking about in this country including social security and including Medicare and Medicaid and all of -- Because that we can't afford you could afford them easily.
It's the economy turned around the economy solves all problems.
You said it sees -- -- common sense ideas if they're common sense and is what is your theory as to why the president isn't good is a different ideology he doesn't understand that he is a different plan.
What's your -- that what's your response to why the president doesn't take what you say is common sense.
I have to -- because it's impossible to figure it's absolutely impossible it's so simple when you look at what's happening from outside.
And -- other countries are just absolutely taken -- every country that does business with us takes advantage as we would like to big patsy that doesn't -- -- And -- so often that you see where.
A country like as an example Colombia a country of Colombia -- -- -- -- trading August that it -- four billion dollars so often that you see this and nobody doesn't think about it you know again sitting in the old days when we really at a country that knew what they were doing we would have been Smart one.
Now we're like this dumb bully at -- very very -- Right dumb bully now -- what -- they didn't just have as a friend reference though the old is we're doing it's like give -- Time yeah well you got to cut back too far you go back to Reagan when we were respected I mean you look at what happens did during.
The Reagan years and now he really did turn things around and taxes were very high and they if they brought it down very substantially and that really got him down.
And I would think that the country during that period of time -- -- highly respected and that seems to be you -- have a relatively speaking.
In the modern age I guess you'd call that the modern -- and I think it was a good period of time to this country.
I know -- a huge and business empire -- not as big as a federal government but I'm curious if I -- within your huge business empire is there a way activists -- past year was spending about 820000.
Dollars and a lavish party.
Or -- -- county and and a lot of -- done internally so that.
This 820000 was spent by the GSA is just so irresponsible wire government wrestle -- -- -- feel.
Well I'll tell you something DG -- we've had some experience who did you say we found them to be very very responsible and very professional to be honest and you know when we cut a ribbon like we cut a ribbon recently in Toronto we cut a ribbon in Hawaii.
You cut ribbons -- buildings -- people do go to those things and they do have.
Parties so I'm not looking to beat the defendant did you know -- -- -- come to the defense and anybody but in general.
Have to go and travel and -- TSA has property Europe stepped -- people have to have property and a responsible -- People don't go and cut ribbons and do things and they do spend money on parties like that so.
-- -- know what data I don't think probably this spending your dime your private -- -- -- the party your private time to do that ribbon cutting or even in the case let's take the hypothetical let's take a case where the TSA went to Hawaii and took like a whole week to go -- -- revenue that took about an -- they could very -- -- outsourced that to a member of congress is making a truck -- anyway.
Who -- stood it could be this into the stand in for the GSA -- I had totally disagree -- -- on this this is the most extravagant waste of taxpayer money so.
Well I can I don't know I think about it I mean I do know there when I do open buildings -- when I build a building an apple we do have openings that we do have parties and we do celebrate the success of the job that.
All -- that does happen Greta we have to be fair to all sides and that does happen.
Well that's your as you're spending your -- like a -- a lot -- spending a dime on the stuff and then maybe I would invite some -- -- I'm lucky willow and I would love to do.
You're at a good time.
I kind of weird Twitter account maybe you if they've been in recent weeks today one of them is admiral Mike raven had full operational controlled have been -- mission.
Rocco Bob I gave vague directions -- what you're -- to me about your we re -- what's your what are you tweeting about.
-- -- When a decision is made it wasn't a big group of very very talented.
Generals or whoever it may be just list we have we have.
Osama -- lot we have camps -- of two things one of briefings is gonna happen.
-- -- -- Go with a missile or -- get them.
Now I think almost anybody would have made the decision to let it go -- and get him -- -- go to with a missile boats which would have been acceptable.
So I think a lot of credit is and that that was basically an article was written and I think a lot of credit is being given.
Credit should be given to a certain extent but anybody sitting in that office would have I believe made the same decisions meeting one of those two things.
I say if the president doesn't -- -- -- that -- not the American people form making that decision risky too much credit is that what you're saying -- you don't like that it's being used as you know it in politics as we approach Tony twelve election.
I think anybody that was the president of the United States when they're called by the generals or whoever happened to calls -- we have this band.
He's sitting in this wonderful beautiful as I wouldn't say so beautiful.
But he's sitting in Pakistan which -- our.
So called allies where they're not telling missed because they knew all about it and in fact you could tell you could make the case how -- you president and you were paying.
Billions and billions and billions of dollars here to Pakistan and they don't tell us about it but.
Regardless of that I think anybody sitting in the White House and their approach by the generals that we have -- some of the -- that we have Emmys there.
That's -- anybody would have made a decision I mean I would have said let's leave them alone I don't think too many people would have done it.
All right another tweet today I would check out particularly and treat -- this month I have never been a fan of John Edwards referring to senator John Edwards former senator John Edwards.
But it's time for the government to focus on more important things -- you becoming chairman of the -- John Edwards defense committee -- Well that's not a better all -- never liked it might never trust -- a -- it -- but it was a sleaze bag correctly but.
You know what with all that's going on in this country.
They're going out and this is a very very tough trial to start off where that a lot of people are saying.
It's not a trial that the government's -- -- went but with all of that everything going on with the money that is being just.
Billions and trillions of dollars being thrown out the window.
I really think we have better things to do and frankly a lot of people saying it a lot of very good lawyers have told me that the government does have a good case.
They're spending months and years on this case.
And I -- again.
Not a -- don't believe him at all.
But I hate to see resources wasted to this extent this life is destroyed anyway regardless and I hate to -- this kind of money and effort we can put money and effort into something else it's a lot more productive.
Well I'm sure enough fan -- sent -- and a fan trying to sort of keep the integrity of the system and I am somewhat curious since he is you know in this is set -- unlikable guy he's -- -- -- as live -- is dying of cancer lying about a baby.
That I wonder if and I do wonder if it's humanly possible for jurors to sit there and look only at the evidence.
Knowing in the back of the -- and then my disease section.
Act cat and I wonder if this our personal opinions were so -- us still -- -- away from looking coldly dispassionately.
At the evidence and fairly.
Well I think despite what the lawyers are also saying that is not a very good case from the government he may lose just because of what you just said I mean people are not.
Thrilled with him and -- really tended to like what I I just.
I had a lot of respect -- better once or twice and I sort of this respect where I thought she was very strong very solid and you know he she was a bad guy in a lot of different ways and he could take it case that really shouldn't be what he could make them would it so let's see what happens but with all of that's happening in this world and -- this country.
I just think that maybe they have better things to do.
Got any idea and the Secret Service any thought.
Well I think it's just great disrespect for the president and I think it's really very sad.
And it's hard to believe that this has have been going on for years and years but it does -- -- great disrespect to the president of the United States.
Does -- thank you.
Thank you very much --
