Eight Donald Trump never stops work and he joins us right now from somewhere where are you today Donald.
-- Palm Beach, Florida far from the president at tomorrow voters here also and morrow Largo that's right up for a lot of very -- is not at -- No could you are.
And the president yesterday was -- golf and with that Tiger Woods have you heard anything about that.
Then we'll have a voice and -- -- -- burns says that they had a great time attackers a great guy and who would you rather play golf with.
That there -- the presidency began your -- down like I understand you go on some of the best golf club down in the state of -- so.
Well -- number one rated course in the state trump international and it's it's really great yeah well fantastic let's talk a little bit about this.
-- look this is an awful.
It was like the worst kept secret in the world American Airlines is now teaming up with US Airways they will be the biggest airline in the planet.
We -- a dealer what do you think about that.
What I don't like it but that you're not gonna have a decapitation did the airline business already it's horrible service and horrible everything -- -- just not gonna happen they're now they're gonna refuted that this monster -- largest airline I guess in the world.
Certainly in this country but at the world and it but there's no competition and the way this country was built there's no competition.
And you know I'm not -- for stopping corporate mergers some really the opposite of that but when these airlines get together it would it would it end up having.
Just a couple of airlines it's ridiculous so I think it this is one case where if government got involved.
-- good folks go out and what you airlines well and compete.
I think -- -- a positive that this is not a good that he can have bad service that you could have high ticket -- And we should point out the you know something about airlines could you had dead the trump airline for awhile that shuttle folks -- and on the eastern seaboard.
Who had a had a shuttle which actually sold to US air.
And worked out okay about the you know the airline business to -- -- there's is that like it that you very very tough to every problem you can.
Better ticket prices are is that it error are when when people -- -- and that's just are -- next and that.
What -- probably rivers you know that they -- -- the slots of the biggest ports deal would you have all the slots it's very hard to get loose slot so it's not like you could just get -- -- that business.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Beat the airlines have these slots and when you merge -- you have all the -- it's -- very hard -- beat them beat.
So really created a monopoly situation but what's going to happen it is very very high ticket prices and really probably a continuation of bad service.
They don't -- to get your take and what seems to be almost an explosive maneuver by the Obama administration.
They're Equal Employment Opportunity Commission says it should be a federal crime to refuse to hire.
What are your thoughts.
What I don't like it and certainly unit spotted you want to hire.
An ex convict if you feel good about it but you know some of these people have created if they have really done some pretty bad things and I give the employers not wanting to do -- -- to be forced to do that.
Is government involvement in the system and have a bad case of well I mean the fact is wants to do this disgrace.
Well -- -- have very harsh penalties leader.
I mean if if if someone had been convicted of armed robbery or burglary would you want that kind of person.
And wanted to know resorts -- -- golf clubs are your building now.
I would not want -- bet that the person.
I think would be you know -- it's a tough situation but -- -- you know it goes beyond the -- they serve their term and you could stay there you know -- They've absolve yourself of their problem but the fact is it's still there and it's in the back of everyone's minds and everybody knows it.
And then you should not be forced out if you want to do that I think it's fantastic if you want to hire next I think that's been says that we you have to want to do it and they'd -- they'd -- special needs.
War or -- government to be forcing you to hire ex convicts is in -- Well as -- Especially when our men and women are coming back from war and many of our veterans unemployment rate is just -- -- -- they can't find jobs.
Well absolutely right -- pollute -- situation.
But you can't be forced to do yeah I salute and the other thing is that you.
If somebody applies and you don't hire him then they can turn around and -- paying the higher because I'm an ex com -- a court.
I do what I read that's very very severe penalties you limit beyond just fiction that the government -- very severe penalties argued -- you don't hired via Scott that noble do you really -- as we have been saying for a number of years what is this that the government.
Hey we've got a question for -- mr.
trump how high is your chair.
In my article that there might -- that's pretty normal.
Well the reason we mentioned this is a Barbara Corcoran -- big realistic person here in the New York City area she was quoted in this -- success magazine.
She said this looked at Donald Trump's desk.
How high is his seat maybe fifteen feet tall when you're sitting across from him you are a mini me what's -- talking about it.
I think that's they're very very safe but I think -- probably referring to be -- of the here out of that though let's get a lot of business with Bob which is terrific person.
And you know like -- I think that's supposed to pick -- -- -- -- -- One day I'm reading your office and it seems like a normal -- asked sitting admitted normal this -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- the same life.
It is a very adorable I believe it is -- if it accomplishes a lot of work.
Behind that desk we yeah we work hard and we do it.
And but of course you're not just today needs change of that yesterday on -- -- Largo in Palm Beach.
