It from Donald Trump who joins us on the phones more Doug you ought to financed the mast antenna -- India the -- it.
No I don't think so I certainly by this site but I don't think it's an appropriate use of the site and a lot of people don't.
You know the Arab world when they have victory they like to build -- mosque at that site.
You have yeah I think that really it's very strongly out there and I think this is a terrible idea shouldn't be done.
Let's see what happens but it's certainly not what they projected it it would without the community center that's a lot different deals.
So if they know what happened they'll hundreds of thousands of dollars in back taxes and his view this is taken on let's see what happens the fiscal -- -- Donald is little mean it sounds like the -- the United States and mr.
Met face to face yesterday.
And you know if you read the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal are talking about how it sounds like mr.
Boehner is going to -- cave.
Perhaps on tax rate increases and they've got to come up with revenue.
But maybe up the rate what do you think on that.
Well I think would be a mistake right now I think it has to be a comprehensive plan and it has to be totally completed final.
And you should do it once and you know what the Republicans still have is bad debt ceiling coming up about and that's going to be brutal.
That's a tremendous -- and they should make everything to everything now -- get the country backcourt but here because.
The country's really mystic the unemployment report what's not good the real report what's not good at.
Which is not getting it and you look at other judges -- just read today which I.
-- again hoping they thought it was gonna have a recession.
And it's steadily not a recession deterred that that they were mistaking there was some light basically you know automation could have -- -- everybody's booming.
Thank you look at what's happening -- so it -- they really have to -- complete and comprehensive and final deal that they should do it then.
Yet because the company in what you're talking about is so Smart at the comprehensive ness of it because if you just raise taxes we've.
Shown time and time again that that only gets -- say the federal government for eight days -- -- what do you do any another kind of a fiscal cliff looming so.
Do you believe that behind closed doors yesterday that the president actually serious.
About spending cuts as well.
Well I think he is serious about that I think -- what does there have to be spending cuts to go along with whatever is going to happen.
But you know we should make that kind of deal and the kind of comprehensive deal.
That's gonna get our credit rating back -- rated credit what's effective talking about lowering it again.
We should make a deal that will almost immediately.
Get back our credit rating and that should almost be the standard that they know what that standard is down to the penny.
And that's the kind of a deal we should -- we should get our great credit rating back again.
And just real quickly we do -- -- talk about what China's doing in buying but Rich Lowry writes that the president doesn't wanna deal he wants GOP humiliation.
Andy that's what's what's it's all behind the 35 to 39% for the upper tax rate to -- do you see that.
Well I'm -- -- it's for that purpose and maybe he believes if -- did what it elections you have to give a lot of credit for that the Republicans.
For whatever reason they just didn't resonate with the people and that's be -- and he won an election I don't see it that way.
He wants to get what he wants to get the fact is the Republican support the idea of negotiating expect maybe David FBI operate -- -- -- hearing everyone's saying the president has the upper -- I think maybe the Republican to mr.
we have the up there because they -- particularly thank god it's discriminatory and they should use that and they should use it very strongly.
Life and I'm sure there's going to be some Whelan in Galen and don't -- -- -- you know.
Thank you wait until the eleventh hour that I do but I can't sit now and I'd get this thing done not just you know we'll delayed for another month that too much.
I'd get it done and use it now use all your power now and make a final.
You will the meters run and as we could see right there.
As bright alluded to there a couple of stories in China is involved in today and any of rail against China for years first of all.
AIG which -- the big insurance company which we bailed out for a 182 billion dollars apparently is going to sell to an investor group in China.
90% of there.
Airplane leasing unit for something like five point three billion dollars it would have to get regulatory approval but are you OK with that.
Well look it's called free enterprise just called world affairs it's called lots of things so when you say I rail against Janet I respect China great led to a lot of visits with -- the biggest bank of the world is -- one of my building.
Chinese bank you'd get one of my buildings -- it that it.
And I sell many many apartments the Chinese people and so I just I have great respect agenda.
I have such respect to their leaders because they are running China properly without running our country we're losing.
I like to -- -- China and other countries but it's particular to China now.
They've taken our money and now they bring in the money back and buying a company and that's gonna happen more and more because they are loaded up to the -- Edward debtor nation.
Sort unless we get very Smart.
Chinese leaders are just outsmarting early leaders by a factor of a hundred.
Marvelously gets what you can see more and more of this -- that they get a get a get a district tried to step it up this company is a little bit today just because Egypt -- -- about owning.
Airplanes like by the numbers -- you wouldn't believe we're talking about massive planes massive technology and massive number of planes.
So -- -- like to know everything is going to be done about it probably not well because this country our country doesn't have the money to play the game.
I would think that we should -- there are certain times we have stepped in I hope we step in the past and you feels those sensitive technology obviously in our.
In our airplanes could be up for grabs on the we should allow that.
And I think you -- -- they might be running their country like a good company but they don't care about the human rights they don't care about personal growth.
Soon they -- all about the end product they treat their people like -- By the way they don't care about the environment -- they're spewing garbage into the air more than anybody -- factories to discuss state.
They make these Windmills which are killing every country that replaced it -- making these Windmills and their factories.
And those factors among bit -- is back -- in the world and that's spewing all sorts of crap and nobody ever read and.
And he just said this -- this hurricane sandy this is this is this influx of sheet -- from China which is pure crap -- -- -- we have no idea identified sheet rock the laymen and know all these house is being rebuilt.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Guess what you and I actually agree on something -- thank -- -- -- -- sometimes we don't Anna wintour who runs Vogue Magazine.
A some people familiar she's been a big -- -- fund raiser for President Obama looks like he could possibly.
A putter up as United Kingdom ambassador or two friends.
I have a problem with this because to me ambassadorships in some cases are famers back by both political parties to people who have raised a lot of money for them.
You also don't have a problem with it.
I don't do it as a -- I -- you is very much for the president and she was very helpful but I'd argue that I think there's a -- -- the country.
She's a very capable person a very good friend of my wife my -- -- And but very very fine person.
And she's talked -- -- she's Smart and she gets it if you really understands that particular I would say what you get over to England or Britain admit your territory.
She would run it so well she would do things that I think nobody else could do in that position.
-- this has nothing to do with the fact that I like -- this has to do with the fact she's very top of the -- has done.
An amazing job that spoke for a long time an amazing job like bill -- they -- -- you hear all these magazines going bad.
Agassi New York magazine which is a terrible magazine that so many of -- a terrible look at the job that she's done -- -- And it's been absolutely amazing and I think -- you would be an amazing Cilic I think she'd be really truly a great ambassador.
Must -- it is nice if she dress is nice and she knows how things work over there because her father was a newspaper -- absolutely.
In the United Kingdom Fareed -- have a great week we'll see you back here next Monday OK good thanks --
