Some of them had -- in tonight for the entire hour we sit down with a man who was always in the spotlight never short of opinions.
So -- less than fifty days to go Donald Trump who -- seriously consider jumping in the presidential race is warning America and Americans about another four years of President Obama.
Now tonight we will evaluate this administration on how it is run the 2012 campaign how is conducting foreign policy.
How it has paralyzed our economic growth and examine the solutions that are being offered by the Romney -- ticket.
And they have the country's answers but first because the Donald has been well less than silent on the abysmal -- -- record.
He like so many on the right have been well subjected to ridicule by the president and his team at a Chicago what's what's this president -- We'll show leadership on being transparent.
Another the underlying.
-- I know that.
He's taken some flak lately but no one has had no one is prouder.
To put this birth certificate matter to rest of -- O'Donnell and one million.
Continue to bring.
College records what is it now -- question which I think he's the one -- brought it up the most what.
Last year this time in fact on this very weekend.
We finally deliver justice to one of the world's most notorious individuals.
And joining me now it's all we have a studio audience tonight let's welcome the one and only Donald Trump.
-- -- He mentioned by the president so often is always always nice you know and I wanted to start here with view for one reason is that you of the willing to say something I've said -- few others have said -- you've been probably the most outspoken of anybody.
That in spite of a perception that exists about President Obama he's not really the nice guy.
He's been able to pull assault.
You don't think he's as nice a guy is he portrays.
So no I don't think he's a nice guy and I think that I'm very happy that Mitt Romney steps saying he was such a nice man you know -- used to say a few months ago he's a nice man a wonderful man.
And I was sort of saying like why do we have to keep saying that because I think he's a tough guy I think he's a Smart guy.
I think he's surrounded by some very tough and Smart people David Axelrod and a few others who actually called me to congratulate me -- -- -- my daughter.
And he just pick up the phone and was David I thought it was very nice.
I think he was trying to butter you up believes he's probably afraid of your -- well whenever I thought it was very nice and but he's a Smart guy and they've got to the very Smart people around him.
And I hate to see what's happening with this country you've probably heard on FOX & Friends which is a great group of people your cohorts.
Actually said something that was interesting and it just came to me.
I called him the unlucky president he's unlucky for this country.
You look at what's happening with the economy you look at what's happening with I mean take a look at -- -- all over the world there -- And -- riding with hatred toward us hate -- really toward the United States and when I see that and I see the kind of effort he put on to get these people together and to sort of make them like does.
And boy do they hate us its exact opposite so I came up with his expression this morning the unlucky president and I really believe -- so he's unlucky.
For this country not a lucky for himself.
Could give you look at his campaign to -- a look at what he did and how we won against Hillary.
Get a lot of -- on the -- he limped over the finish line but he's been unlucky for the cutoff.
It's luck is much as I think he's a good campaigner he read a teleprompter pretty well and -- the media on this side they've never given any scrutiny.
Nobody's closes sale yet -- in the selection I mean it's still wide open.
That then raises the question.
If you were sitting across not for me but for Mitt Romney.
And it was one on one and you had any message to send met -- debate.
Well I think they have to get tougher.
I think their convention was not good I thought the Democrats actually did a very good job is watching Dick Morris in Asia recently and he.
Let's talk about how they picked up something with their convention they're talking about women and unmarried women and the married women.
And they're working hard to Democrats and they're working hard and specific groups.
At the class warfare is always a positive thing in terms of getting votes but it's a very negative thing in terms of the country.
But I do think that -- is going to have to get a lot tougher sort -- a funny thing and he if you look at his history Obama's history.
People don't like getting tough with -- they're afraid.
To talk like you supposed to talk I don't know what it is.
John McCain who I always have liked was very gentle and very nice when it came to.
It to not a super.
I thought it was far too nice I didn't quite understand it but I didn't understand Obama as well then either so maybe you didn't you know didn't register the same way.
But if you look at what Mitt Romney is doing I just think he's got to get and I think he's a terrific guys a Smart guy he's a wonderful guy great family man meant.
He's got to get tougher with respect to President Obama.
Lot's gonna -- depend on these debates I mean here we've -- If you look at Mitt Romney came -- -- South Carolina -- -- doubled that are ahead double digits lost by double digits Florida he'd gotten beaten in two debates by Newt Gingrich.
And then he rose to the occasion.
I -- but he's only got three chances in this case one as a town hall he's got to come out of the box.
There seems to be this fear though about taking on the president in a -- white.
He thinks some of this is due to race when you're running for president when you were saying you might put your hat in the ring.
That race car was brought up against you you spend an entire life helping people of all races in the city New York.
That is true and there are a lot of people came to my defense it was very interesting I was called a racist Bill Clinton was called -- racist.
Now I know Bill Clinton and I've seen Bill Clinton -- and you and others where.
He said Donald Trump is a great guy I mean we -- we do have a very very good relationship and he's a great guy but he was called a racist.
And I believe the hatred that he had maybe doesn't have any more for Obama.
Was just unbelievable but people are afraid to take Obama on -- and I think they don't want to be called racist I don't know what it is.
For Obama but he said in 2008 date played the race card on me.
And they plan to from the very beginning and he felt very strongly and I've spoken to him about it and you feel it -- that you went.
Yes they certainly did I mean you mentioned certain things in this you know it's racist anytime you criticize Obama whether it's trump or anybody else you get is racist thing going -- thrown at you and it's very unfair not nice I really -- I must tell you I loved.
Thinking about running I was thinking about running as you know I was doing incredibly well in the polls people liked what I said weather was about China -- was about OPEC ripping us off -- Whether it was about Obama.
And I would tell it like it is and I wish you were great president I'm a Republican but you know what if you were great -- I've been happy he's got.
It's not working out.
You look at what's going on in this country you look at how every country in the world is just ripping us.
How can we have jobs when China as an example makes all our products have a we have jobs -- every country that does business with the United States.
Makes let's call it profit tremendous profit you know used to be the other way around I hate to say.
-- every country that deals with the United States walks away and says to themselves what a bunch of dummies -- And it's abrasive than even the people you do business within China they say that about America they absolutely say -- -- about a president I do a lot of business I sell apartments tremendous.
Numbers one for 53 million dollars one for 33 million dollars.
The Chinese people I mean I do a lot of business with China.
And I get along it was sort of interesting because I hit China hard but I do with respect and I actually do I respect that which -- people were doing the same thing.
But business week magazine came out with something what do the Chinese want and one of the ten things was anything trump and I said.
And so hard to believe what they do sort of -- Act numbers tell the truth -- respect strength the world I only the world respects -- President Obama but will we come back we have a lot more and we have you for the full hour tonight with a studio audience and coming up.
The president said America's view in the Muslim world will improve once he is inaugurated.
Well I think we can all agree that nothing could be further from the truth coming up next Donald Trump on this president's handling of everything from the mideast crisis.
To these snubbing of Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
And throughout the hour we're going to be seeing clips of the life of Donald Trump every day and Donald Trump enterprises right here in New York let's take a sneak peek inside.
I've always gotten along well with athletes and people in the sports world I've gotten so many different things to -- -- -- -- issue.
A lot of people think oh no it can't be but he actually took it off after -- game we gave it to me.
The real deal.
And lots of different things Tom Brady New England Patriots.
And so many -- jets.
Mike Tyson's belt from one of the championships.
Lots of football's.
This is do you wrestle mania -- right here that was when we broke the all time record.
-- the battle of the billionaires that was with Vince McMahon -- myself fighting do you believe that one but -- -- to this -- it's the all time record.
And they really had a good time so lots of different things that we have.
And I always get a kick out of athletes and I equate the athletes often times in sports to life he can win and you can lose.
The only difference is that in sports it's a little bit more obvious he was a baseball game four to three lost sometimes with a country takes a long time to see -- -- losing.
We are losing big -- and the discourse pointed and nothing.
And we have to turn it around.
