My fellow Americans.
We gathered during the historic anniversary.
Last year this time in fact on this very weekend.
We finally deliver justice to one of the world's most notorious individuals.
That was one of the first jokes that the president had at the white house correspondents' dinner.
The crowd thought it was hilarious what did Donald Trump think he joins us live right now -- you guys every morning good morning to mr.
Well good morning.
Good morning that was a little bit different but a little different it was it on the line no not at all I thought it was fair game I was -- game and it was done.
It is very good case -- Okay so was it wasn't funny -- and the fact that you -- the first joke out of the gate.
I mean I know you're a marketing master you must -- thought well that's pretty cool.
Well I actually do it was -- you know fairly cool and my daughter would -- it she thought it was great.
If rocket called me she says that if they just lets you view it just.
Yeah he can ask for more each side even bother you know but I I did get to see -- that -- -- was absolutely fine you do you were before all the dog jokes but that's right about much you have I -- with those.
I thought they were a little bit rough but you know it he's willing to do that that's -- but I thought they were a little drop shots for us what would you -- by Jimmy Kimmel.
I thought he was actually better much better than set fires last year and I thought -- get a pretty good job.
He really he really gave the president some heat and the president president would just sitting ten feet away.
Yeah and I thought the president reacted very well -- -- had a fixed while others face and and frankly I think he reacted very well but I thought Jimmy.
Really did I think you get a very good job.
-- that's all Voinovich you -- the guy sitting right next yeah let's go on to some business talk because.
There's been some discussion about the fact that oil companies are a big problem for the United States even though they paid more than 40%.
In in taxes but there was an EPA percent who said let's crucify the -- companies last last week.
Well we did a little researching come to find out that some of the other big companies in America like apple for example.
They end up sidestepping billions in taxes by pushing things overseas.
And yet they don't seem to be in the line of fire from this administration with regard to the amount of taxes that they pay what do you make of -- Well there was a big story over the weekend that apple has billions and billions of dollars and -- not bring it -- -- have been happening tax on it and obviously probably something will be done something has to be done at some point.
But they do -- the oil companies very hard there's no question but you know honestly Gretchen did very very hard to speak to feel sorry for the oil companies have to say that.
-- well because I think you know they are doing very well and they get -- lot of money.
They are very very close with OPEC and OPEC is repeat this country like nobody's ever ripped it before so.
I you're really talking to the wrong person in terms of.
Would you Leo how would you change the current scope of the way things are working.
Well I think everybody should pay a similar attacks have been big corporations -- big corporations whether it's oil or computers and I think they should pay very low tax but they should -- -- attacks they shouldn't be that kind of disparity.
And so it should be in the president's words.
There is chief district like.
It's -- singular basis.
Not yet I just wanna see the president's going to be in the Rose Garden at twelve were to condemning apple and Google for not paying enough taxes.
Well I don't think he will be but it would be really nice to see -- -- more at one pay less but in any event everybody should pay as little as possible.
Especially the middle class especially.
Lots of people to produce jobs have been you gotta keep the taxes that we are the highest tax.
Nation in the world.
You know it's obviously take it acceptable way because look how badly were telling no we're doing very badly as a nation.
I was in the Republic of Georgia over the weekend in -- that's why didn't do your show last week and back do you have to see a place that's booming it's unbelievable.
This was a Russian satellite for a period of time broke away it's -- you know as leaders are going to that country to find out what they're doing what it's an industry there.
It's everything about one of them is tourism and at what they're doing they're building replaced the -- will -- It's going to be one of the great places of the world -- four or five years -- see what they're doing.
So what's your -- it so it's a dead before and move on the next topic what are you gonna be investing well.
Do it a big job there I'm doing the big development there and it's been a basic I mean it's been a basic -- about 10% growth is supposed to water 2% that we have of this country.
But the 10% I think is a very low number.
As a kid really read -- western trained I -- so he and well.
He's one of the great leaders of the world right now and and literally other countries major countries are going there.
To find out what he's doing.
Then that Donald Trump let me ask you some the president United States is saying that you know bin Laden's dead in GM's alive.
Do you believe the president deserves credit for saving the auto industry.
Well I think a lot of people deserve credit I think there -- numbers of ways you could have saved it you could have taken a harder stance you could have taken over the industry you could it doesn't lots of different things.
And I think lots of different ways would have worked ultimately it would have worked.
What they filed for bankruptcy.
As they were able to continue and continue what -- itself whether you -- it the way that they did it or you dated a different way.
Numerous ways would have worked to -- general -- General Motors was not going to be wiped off the face of the planet.
Yeah and and over the weekend the Romney camp has -- in luck the president was simply following our advice -- bankrupt.
Managed bankruptcy but the other component is GM got a whole bunch of government -- Well you know if you look at what Mitt Romney said originally he did talk about a managed bankruptcy and that's what it was it was and managed bankruptcy.
And it worked out and everybody is sort of happy I think -- uncle -- how sorry -- that the government put up all that money.
Yeah but about ploy didn't work out from the for some of the people though that lost their pensions because it was a structured bankruptcy in lot of people argue that the unions for the ones who benefited and it more than anybody else.
Well the biggest beneficiaries -- the -- there's no question about that.
Right and also forward they did things right they plan for any day and other competing against the government and everybody else you know they were structured ahead of the crash run.
He's really one of the great leaders of industry -- been Mulally what he's done -- Ford has been a basic as he did it without the bankruptcy.
And that's my show and -- spoiler alert in case anybody definitely -- know who was kicked off -- last night so you had another heated argument between.
