His mind is Donald Trump and he joins us this morning via phone as he does every money good morning -- you -- -- morning.
Let's talk a little bit about the -- that you've endorsed for president Mitt Romney he's been overseas he was in London Israel now on to Poland.
And did -- gain any ground by visiting Israel he held the first ever.
For -- -- United States fund raiser there.
Did -- gain some ground by also saying that the capital should be moved to Jerusalem.
Well I think he gained ground by showing his -- of -- I think that he's done very well over there's been very well received.
And polls are showing that he's doing very nicely so I think he can't grant absolute but he's.
And killed with the American Jewish voice trailed by 43 points.
Why is that do you think it because I think they had a lot of the Jewish people that are supporting Obama are doing the wrong thing because.
-- is much more pro Israel than Obama yet and a lot of people are saying that and I think those polls change.
We're looking at images of mr.
Romney there at the western wall putting a prayer in it yesterday.
There's an editorial Donald in the Jerusalem Post and this morning that says Mitt Romney a true fair friend to Israel.
Do you think this is gonna help mr.
Romney with that Jewish voters here in the United States particularly in in Florida which is a gigantic swing state.
It is indeed it certainly is and I think it will help but I think that frankly he's doing very well with regard to Israel.
He's saying the right -- she's doing the right things -- believe it does which is important -- Let's move on to Bill Clinton because as being announced this morning that the former president we'll have a leading role.
At the Democratic Convention in September in Charlotte, North Carolina this is a big this is a big -- for President Obama is it not.
So I think it is I think Bill Clinton -- great guy and I think they could have picked a better person now of course have a little prejudiced because he's a friend of mine.
So -- you know it's one of those things but he is absolutely.
It's great for doing this and it was I don't know it was a hard get frankly I think it was an -- also on behalf of Bill Clinton but.
He's the right person to do it and I take my hats off to the Democrat debate the right choice you haven't.
Is it sincere I mean we already know that he.
Extend all the bush tax cuts at the time to raise taxes do you -- believe he sincerely behind the president.
Glenn -- thought you could say do they like each other do you think they like each other I personally don't.
But that's my opinion but do they like it just -- know is it good for the Democrats yes.
Sure all right moving on let's talk a little bit about this and politically it's sensitive issue and that is.
That there are number Republicans and others who have accused the white house of being a leaky regarding -- some of our biggest national security issues.
You know for some odd reason they're just popping up on the pages of the New York Times and stuff like that senator Feinstein from my California.
Last week suggesting the other coming from the White House and then a couple of days later she had to back that I'm I'm now I'm dot I was wrong to speculate.
What do you think I think it is this putting our men and women he imperiled by revealing so many secrets.
Well first of all the senator -- such credibility the -- -- fact that I think she was very very strong and very.
And you know unbelievably it frankly surprisingly strong about how bad it was that the White -- -- there's.
And then assured translators is just back it up -- devastated -- it like it of course you could equated.
To a very good guided Cory Booker and we couldn't get the same thing if the pressure was applied but I -- it was terrible what she did and the way she backed -- was not good.
It's a horrible thing.
Leaks are coming from the White House to make Obama look good.
And he's actually not looking good and I think it's a much bigger subject that people understand I think it'll become a very big sister at the elite -- Very important information to the press to try and make Obama look good.
These kinds of secrets have never been leaked before this is unprecedented.
No it's unprecedented and it makes.
I think it's make it look very bad it doesn't put the wrong reason to -- they really get into it if they really see what's happening.
It's going to be unprecedented it's a scandal there's no question about well -- -- big scandal and a very dangerous to handle for this country.
And -- something that's out front and center.
The high unemployment rate I -- those numbers are out there for everyone to see and now there is terrible quarter for the GDP the gross national product as well.
But the president used his weekly address to blame the poor economy.
On the bush tax cuts and right now we're looking at -- GDP and how it has plummeted since the fourth quarter of last year in 2011.
Why do you think.
That the polls remain so close when these hard and fast economic numbers are not good for President Obama.
Well I think that's gonna start to change about it the -- will start to change right now it's a very very close race and probably will continue to be a close race but.
The numbers are very bad economic numbers -- very bad the employment numbers are terrible.
I think you could see some very big -- version.
What do you think what's your take on this cover of Newsweek which no one's reading anymore and people -- -- -- own it.
They have -- that desperate to get ratings it seems you'll get buyers or subscribers.
They said is Mitt -- too wimpy to be president what's your take on the.
I think it's a disgrace Barry Diller is running it he's a disgrace city ought to be ashamed of themselves.
And frankly Tina Brown.
I -- she's failed at so many magazines it's ridiculous so you know they're trying desperately as -- -- closed up magazines has very few readers.
And you know they're very partisan it and I think it's frankly.
Almost should not be allowed what they've done it's disgraceful but -- -- -- magazine it's closed up.
Nobody's way to -- nobody cares and who would you pick me for the number two on the ticket.
Well I have a lot of -- I mean you have a lot of great people obviously Chris Christie is a friend of mine but rubio and fort -- and by the way Bob McDonnell in that Virginia is a terrific -- it'll give a lot of really good fixed.
I think the Republicans are going to do very very well and if the economy does -- get better -- that it's not gonna get better very soon.
And that could be a big changes the way that.
Sure we could know who the strongest -- is in the next couple weeks.
Donald Trump joining us every Monday morning in about 7:30 eastern time Donald thank you very much have a great week thank you very much you --
