When there is big -- back today from business leaders to president Obama's comments on the success.
-- American business owners here are the whole original comments in context he can listen home.
If you been successful you don't even get -- on your -- I know I'm always struck -- people who think.
Well it -- because I was just so Smart.
It must be because awards loaded nobody out let me tell you -- -- the hole.
It's -- hard working people.
-- -- Yeah so now some invest in roads and bridges that you got to -- is that you -- build that.
All right so here's with the chamber of commerce has said about all of this quote.
We should applaud the risk takers and the dreamers who are willing to stand out from the crowd.
Rather than denigrate what these people have done we need to encourage more people to be like them.
Joined now by Donald Trump the chairman and president of the Trump Organization.
Joins us now on the phone welcome good to have you here today ironic and hi there you know it when he -- that -- saying the whole quote what goes through your mind.
Well I think we're really now getting down to basics these the real crux of this president and a lot of people have.
Thought that's a long time but we are really getting down to the nitty gritty and would you talk about class warfare that's what it is and I haven't all the time.
Out of a job then he'll be successful another person will do a Japanese will be a failure it'll be in -- same area.
And they don't like being.
But you don't my ideas were better my windows were larger my building was better what -- it may beats.
And you know people should be rewarded for being good entrepreneur -- not Scott's -- so I think it's a very terrible thing.
So -- the president saying you know you may be successful I doubt prompt and others who are successful but you gotta remember.
-- you couldn't have gotten your stuff the one place to the other without those bridges in the tunnels on the roads that were built by the government.
Well you know they're always has been a little bit of an element of luck if you're born Smart you're bored with the good IQ you -- -- intelligent you're bored.
In the United States I consider that to be great stroke of luck so there's always luck involved in the -- you know about a different kind of -- thing I believe -- and what he's talking about I think he's going right down to the nitty gritty.
Entrepreneurs -- and this country.
Can't take that we cannot take much more of what's going on in Washington.
Think that the Romney camp is doing in responding to this whole thing do you see today's comments by the president.
As a seminal moment in this campaign as something that can you know really be a moment that we look back on say when he said that -- the conversation changed.
I don't think so but I think it would that is going to start getting -- I think he has no choice but to get tough I don't think he's going to be using that phrase about what a nice man the president is because it's turning out to be different at all you have to do is go back four years and see what he did did Hillary Clinton.
And that campaign which was certain to be the most vicious ever in the history of our country and now we have one I think that will surpass it soaks.
I really think that is going to have to get very very tough and I think it will.
In his campaign has said we're gonna talk to John Sununu in a moment and he said yesterday.
About the -- campaign that he thinks that they are sort of you know getting into the mode that we're gonna see the man.
Did a convention in the election.
But then there are others out there who -- frustrated that is isn't sort of you know coming out a stronger way now do you think that strategy is good strategy.
Well I'd like you come out now I don't know you know I mean we can always say let's wait let's wait and as you know John.
McCain ran a very high level campaign and do it it's just not gonna work and I'd like to see him come and I had an example they ask for tax returns he's given tax returns -- They want more could -- -- another five years they brought about a -- you're so you know there's never.
Any satisfaction and I sit look at they want you to actually -- to ask for his college -- -- answer some of his records that are sealed in Chicago.
Many of his records are sealed that you can't but nobody knows what -- -- and they talk about re dealing well what would be of those college applications I'd like to see what it says that.
You know frankly when they ask about your taxes.
Which I think frankly will be much less revealing that anybody would find and the other seventy got -- -- because.
Obama gave his taxes but that's because he basically made that would come -- many years I mean he wasn't making very substantial income about a couple actually turn it.
A businessman that's very successful like Mitt Romney has very very complex returns and people -- look at him any way they want and it's not to yourself.
If they want to returns that you get good returns to.
But I want to see all of these sealed documents that you have all over the place and he's got a lot of bumps in particular college application -- Who would you like to see him pick as vice president how important you think that decision it.
Well I think it's a very important decision I mean history show that it's not -- important -- you would think it is I think Bob McDonnell is great I think I think that senator rubio would be excellent I think you're senator from Ohio Portman would be very very good -- but a lot of good people we have.
A lot of good people of the Republican Party but.
I didn't think Bob McDonald and rubio and Portman and and Chris Christie always is terrific I -- very well -- have a lot of property and estate he's got a really good job so you -- you have a lot of good people.
Now trump thank you so much come backs and to -- well and -- attacking I don't want to.
