It's a good time for congress to slip away from Washington and take a five week vacation.
What about president jetting off to Martha's Vineyard is this a good time for him to do that.
We -- don't trump.
Nice to talk via -- -- I did want to have any -- -- -- congress taking a five week vacation.
Well with what's going on of the country and that includes the president this is not a good time to be taking vacations you lead by example.
And vacation just not what this country want to see right now you have a debt ceiling coming up you have lots of other things happening.
And other countries that mask we have.
Seventeen trillion now in debt which -- -- to believe but seventeen trillion this is not a good time to be taken a vacation.
I regular research professor post and Greta wag the reason why they're taking a five week vacation goes back to seventeen.
And that's because it was so hot in Washington in August it was very tough on the legislature's.
But I should point out that they've had air conditioned US capitol since about nineteen.
Fifty so where the reason why -- taking a vacation dates back to 1791.
What do you think about that.
Well it's amazing how great air conditioning systems work today and just installing a big -- and their -- they really do work very well so.
That's no longer an excuse although I guess I don't know.
Distant problem where they use an excuse like that.
We have -- looks.
Indeed we did -- -- -- resolution.
Is set to expire on the last -- -- September that's very important.
To the government the economy.
So and they're -- they're not -- -- -- around for five weeks to make a decision says me a lot of pressure on September.
What it would have may indifference TO.
If they actually did their work sooner rather than later as a business person job creator.
Well I think it makes a big difference because we go back to the -- certainty we've had so little certainty in this country.
We don't know what's going to happen with the debt ceiling is it going to be a war again or is it going to be.
Easily approved well we think it's probably not going to be easily approved will it be approved so.
You really have to get to work -- separates complex.
There's a huge negotiation.
-- You know many of the people were talking about they've never negotiated before they've never been a private business that -- what it is to make a payroll are or look at the balance sheet.
As for them to be going away right now assets such a bad example for the country -- -- the world to watch.
They do it I -- -- know they can do it but -- if I weren't congress.
And I saw on the state of the country and I knew that I the debt ceiling looming as we're gonna hit that soon continuing resolution soon to expire that I sort of half started on an important issue like immigration that I talk about the tax -- but all I do is put more special -- -- good from my body is mad at some point wouldn't you think that doing your job comes -- did it take the whole year off but do your job first.
Well I think the president has -- -- you know it all starts at the top that you have a man that's go to be the leader.
And he's got a call everybody together and he's got to say come -- let's not leave let's all sit together.
Come to the light has come to wherever you ought to comment let's get together and make a deal.
But if it doesn't seem to be that kind of talk a lot of people want to make deals but the deals are so divergent and so different.
And you have not dealmakers having to make it very top.
The very complicated deal and yet actually if you look at it is not so complicated it's pretty obvious what has to be done but.
You're dealing with not dealmakers and in the case of the president.
You know at Duckett about a dealmaker you have to have great leadership and if the leadership isn't gonna come before it's going to be a big problem and I'll tell you what.
Come later on September 30 you could have a real disaster in this country.
Well I suspected what the supporters the president would say as -- supporters -- others I would say is that not every present doesn't -- president takes time off so you know.
Wow -- how can you complain now but just not your guy.
Well they -- and some don't you know we've had some very very hard working president that we've had some better legendary for not having worked so hard but in this case.
We really need leadership we've never been in a position where we -- seventeen trillion dollars a lot of it to the Chinese by the way.
Seventeen trillion -- we've never been -- that position at a can be solved this country has such incredible potential economic potential and by the way.
You mentioned the -- economics that you mentioned financials.
And that's good in terms of Social Security it's good in terms of Medicare and Medicaid.
We need to well up to take care of people means not a bad word well there's not a bad -- we needed to take care of people.
But you have to have somebody that knows what he or she is doing.
Right now -- escaped my attention the fact that you are going to Iowa this weekend and so is set.
Someone that that think that there may be senator Rand Paul is going to speak as well and others are -- senators -- Ted Cruz.
Every time we see people going to Iowa.
We in the media becomes suspicious that that there's 2016 on your mind isn't that one of the reasons that tiny bit of one of -- reason to go to Iowa.
Well the reason is that Bob Vander Platz is a great guy who is their leader there as far as that's concerned -- religious leader and a great one.
Is a friend of mine and ESP if I'd go.
And I said yes -- a lot of people are reading a lot of things into that but I did say yes and I will say this.
In a very -- judicious manner tickets are going through the -- are you surprised by that Greta.
Well you know I'm never surprised -- -- also senior Twitter account and nobody apprentice so none of this ever surprised -- I've been to your office so no that doesn't surprise me.
But what does surprise visit just can't get some sort of read on whether whether you truly have an interest in 2016 effort to serve like you guys like to make us crazy in the media and -- and just -- -- Well I have an interest in the country and the countries doing poorly and it's probably.
Never done so poorly and yet it's disguised the little bit because the stock market is up and other things are up.
But we have a real unemployment rate of fifteen or 16% you know that I know that everybody knows.
Yeah showed that corporate it'd.
Could you change it as president they -- trump for president.
I tell me what you do the public telling -- to hundred no.
Do work yes you have to stop foreign countries -- -- all our goods all our products through manipulation of their currency evidence that that -- get it.
We make better product that China we may look much better product but.
When they manipulate their -- he would make it impossible for us to buy -- our own country.
People are not going to be working so we -- you haven't -- vast unemployment rate and we have to put these people back to work we have to get foreign countries.
To stop -- -- our politicians which is what they're doing.
But does that mean that had -- president.
The last go around that you had done a better job of President Obama are you saying that because I see that is sort of back in indication whether and I think that you did good -- begin Tony sixteen.
Well if I decided to run that back Mitt Romney if I decided to run I was leading in all the polls if I decided to run and -- Taiwan.
I think would be a lot better shape right now and I wouldn't be on vacation.
I'm right -- -- this blood stream of better shape but a ride.
The news tonight dead that he has said been suspended for the -- ended the season next season your thoughts about that.
I think it's great look he's been taken this up all of his life and when he stopped take it and it became a lousy baseball player or certainly just less than average.
I think it's great and it's such an example.
And he's done very popular in New York nobody likes -- he lived at one of my buildings Derek Jeter like wise and many of the Yankees -- many of the players live in my buildings and I can tell you the ones that people liked and the ones that people don't like device say.
It is dormant what if they get -- -- we loved Derrick if I say what do you think -- a ride it's like forget it.
So -- he deserves what he gets he's been doing this for a long time.
And frankly I don't understand the Yankees the Yankees should have stopped paying him two years ago because obviously -- the contract.
What he cited was not what they -- -- -- so I don't understand why the Yankees kept begging him but maybe they're very generous who -- I've very random Shapiro's now be in the hall of fame would you left let Pete Rose and.
Yes you know you look at some of this stuff and -- CP -- is that number one.
All time leading -- leader in baseball over 4000 -- he's paid a big price absolutely it's time to let.
Pete Rose and all of bank and by the way virtually everybody agrees with think Pete -- should be in the hall of fame.
I don't know why hasn't -- to thank you.
Thanks so -- Greta.
