We're now honored to be joined by Mr. Donald Trump. Mr. Trump is running for the Republican nomination for the presidency of the United States. Mr. Trump, we had Dr. Carson on earlier talking about his trip to Syria. But we started the show with our live reporters in Turkey, London, Paris, Rome, etc., talking about this fracas right now between Putin and Erdogan. We've talked about this 10 days ago on Breitbart. And our listeners, about Turkey making money off of ISIS oil. That the revenue streams, major revenue streams is oil, as you've talked about. Turkey has been the middleman. Putin, now finally nine days after Breitbart, BBC lead story, Putin saying, ‘Hey, we've got a problem here.’ Turkey's the middleman and making plenty of cash off ISIS and has skin in the game, keeping ISIS around. Erdogan immediately goes back and says, ‘Hey, you can prove it, I'll step down.’ What ... is your plan in prosecuting this war as commander in chief of the United States? If you're elected president in prosecuting the war, what do you do with Turkey? Is Turkey a reliable partner? I know they are a NATO ally. Are they a reliable partner? Well I also have, I have a little conflict of interest because I have a major, major building in Istanbul and it's a tremendously successful job. It's called Trump Towers -- two towers instead of one, not the usual one, it's two. And I've gotten to know Turkey very well and they are amazing people, they're incredible people, they have a strong leader, the strong leader is now fighting pretty much with Putin, if you look at what's going on, there's a lot of, there's a lot of angst and a lot of anguish going on over there. I think this, I think Turkey has been a good partner for the United States. But things are getting very complicated because you have ISIS, you have Assad in Syria where they're fighting ISIS, and you know we're supposed to be fighting, I guess both, according to the Obama administration and lots of times that doesn't work out too well. How are you going to fight both? And, you know, the people that we're fighting for, against Assad, are rebels that we have no idea who they are. So we have a very complex set of circumstances that if you look at Turkey, Turkey looks like they're on the side of ISIS more or less based on the oil. Isn't your big selling point for being commander in chief and being president is that a lot of these guys in politics are essentially munchkins? That's right. Right. I'm an international deal guy. If you want to deal with China come to me. If you want to deal, if you want to deal with Russia, you come to me. If you want to deal with Turkey ... I understand it's complicated. That's your calling card. So walk me through the complexity. OK, I love complicated, I thrive on complicated. My deals are so complicated, ideally, that no one else but me understands them, Steve. It's one of the reasons I do so well with them. [Laughter] But, but you know, you do have a lot of circumstances here that are very, very against each other. Now I've been saying to you and everybody else for years, attack the oil, but I've said a step further, I said attack it, but keep it. All right. I want to keep the oil. I don't want to give them the oil. I want to keep the oil because, you know, we spent $2 trillion in Iraq and we end up with nothing, except we have our wounded warriors, who are the greatest and we have our veterans, who have been treated terribly, but we have nothing out of Iraq. We have absolutely nothing. We got nothing because we have stupid leadership. Iraq has among the largest oil reserves in the world. And I was saying when we left -- we shouldn't have gone in and you know that I said that many, many years ago at the beginning, because we're going to just destabilize the Middle East. That happened then that we certainly shouldn't have gotten out the way we got out especially, with Obama picking a date. So the enemy, which in large case was ISIS and all of these folks that are fighting and fighting viciously and very well, I don't know how they're doing it with all the bombs and everything else. But I know the bombs aren't being put in the right places. That's for sure, that you understand, too. But now you have a situation where they're extremely wealthy and they've gotten it from the oil and now all of a sudden they're starting to hit the oil, OK? About three years late, Steve. OK? They should have done it three years ago. You wouldn't probably have ISIS right now but they're starting to hit the oil. We have to hit the oil. We have to hit the banks because the banks are pouring cash into ISIS. They have various businesses. Oil is one and oil would be that big one. But they're also going through a very sleazy channels with banks. Even though, even I think the Bank of England came out, I believe it was two weeks ago, I'll double check this, and said, ‘Hey, we're so porous here on money laundering, etc., we can be a center for these guys monetizing all types of things.’ You're talking about the international banking system. Absolutely, and the banks are, you know, sometimes unwilling participants sometimes they don't know they're participants, probably they are not stupid, they probably do generally know. But you have tremendous amounts of cash and money being poured into ISIS through the banks. That's another one that they have to hit. Who knows more about banks than Trump? Nobody. So we have to stop that. Nobody even talks about that. You know nobody talked about the oil until I brought it up, it took me three years, and then -- and a lot of commentators like yourself, by the way, have given me a lot of credit, you know, because I've wanted to do this for four years, from the beginning I've wanted to do it. They took out oil in Iraq and in Syria. That place, both places they have oil and we could have hit it and we could have kept it and we could have given some of the profits, just some of the profits to the wounded warriors and to the families. [Inaudible] I think that's part of things of all our callers. People come to Breitbart, they're saying, ‘Hey, my sons and daughters have gone over, they’re wounded, they're dead, or they serve and they come back and they get PTSD, or they can't find a job.’ And it looks like the fix is in, the international financial community may be involved. Clearly you don't monetize this oil unless you've got brokers, unless you've got people that are buying the oil and they know where the source of the oil from, look, and they're saying, ‘Hey the fix is in.’ Everybody's making money off this deal. ISIS is making money off this. Except us. Except us, we're sacrificing and that's not right. And we're the ones that made it possible. We're the ones that broke up Iraq. It should have never happened because Iraq was a foil for Iran. They were the same. They were equal strength. You know they'd have wars all the time and nobody would go anywhere. OK? They were exactly equal strength. And when we decapitated Iraq that was, you know, now Iran is going to be something, you know, you could buy stock in a company, and if the company was named Iran, you'd buy stock. They're sitting there with $150 billion. They have -- They just announced last week, Total in Italy, the Italian oil company. There's $100 billion of oil contracts, these guys are all betting on right now. I mean you understand, you understand why the deal went through on the nuclear weapon because now you're seeing all the guys, it's $100 billion contracts they are all betting on. Oh, and everybody's making money but us. Russia is doing missiles and lots of other things. OK, everybody's making money. What do you say to your critics. [Inaudible]. They mocked you. In fact, they were belly-laughing on TV. They even rolled out generals to say that it wouldn't be a good strategy, right? You remember that one? So what do you say to that? What can you say to stupid people, Steve? These are stupid people. We're run by stupid people. We have a president over there worried about climate change instead of worrying about nuclear weapons coming into the middle of our cities. We have, we are being run by stupid people. I used to say incompetent, but stupid is really, you know, is the next stage. And frankly, we have people that shouldn't be doing that. I take it Mr. Trump, you do not believe if the president of the United States says, or The Huffington Post has a huge headline. You know, ‘Last Stop Before Catastrophe. Paris is the thing, the deal has to come together or mankind is finished.’ Now the pope weighs in today that we're on a path to suicide. He sounds like he's backing up President Obama. Do you agree with the pope and President Obama that this is absolutely a path to global suicide if specific deals are not cut in Paris versus focusing on radical Islam that's prepared to, according to the French prime minister, let off chemical and biological weapons in France? If you're talking about specific deals if you're talking about climate change, global warming, extreme weather, and various other names that they've called it, because the name has never seemed to quite suit because it changes. You know, we do have weather that changes, you have storms and you have tornadoes and you have hurricanes and you've had them always. I remember where recently they were talking about the tremendous snow that one of the cities had. And you know one of the coasts actually had and they said, ‘Oh, the snow is great.’ And the record was in 1896. And I'm saying to myself, it was a long time ago. You know, I mean, we're talking about the cold. We're talking about the warm but the record was a long time ago. No, we are, we are fools. And by the way, China, is not a believer. China is taking our coal. Doing coal plants all over the place. We're closing all our coal plants. They're buying our coal and they're using coal. You don't believe the media, by the way, even The New York Times said that all the data coming out of China about this is all false. But you don't believe this thing that China is over there now wants to be one of the leaders of this movement, right? You aren't buying that? They want to be a leader with their mouth, but they don't do it. They want to be a leader with their mouth. They want to stand there and say, ‘Oh, we agree Mr. President, we agree.’ I mean, they have agreements where they don't have to do their things for years into the future. You know that. We have to do ours now, but they don't have to do theirs for years into the future. You know that means for our companies, where companies have to rejigger and our companies have to do all sorts of things and then we're supposed to compete with China, which is not spending any money? Now China is taking our coal, they're opening up coal plants and why not? Because, you know, frankly it's very cheap, it's very efficient and lots of things and, you know, you can't, there is such a thing as clean coal. I doubt they're using clean coal. You know there's a process of cleaning the coal, which is more expensive but it's still a process that works and they're not using that. I'm sure that, I know they're not using that. So we have a bunch of people that don't know what they're doing. We have people focused on climate change or extreme weather and this to this day nobody is telling me, I watch on television that a couple of scientists on last night, one was for one and was against, and if you watch it the one that was saying that, you know, the humans are not causing any significant climate change it's happening and it happens and it goes like waves, it goes a little up and comes a little down. It's been doing it for millions of years. And if you watch that last night, you would have been on the side that you that we are on, that we're believers, you and me and, by the way, many other people. We have a form of global warming that's a very serious form of global warming and that's called nuclear global warming, because if we don't get our act together and corral all of these countries that want to, you know, get themselves some real power, we're going to be in big trouble. You know, you do have North Korea, which nobody talks about. That's like the bad uncle. You know, that's the bad uncle that nobody wants to talk about, Steve. They'll talk about Iran and make the worst deal ever made in the history of the country, I think, probably, it’s certainly the most incompetently made deal because we got nothing they get everything, including all that we get prisoners back there over there. Now they're going to start a new negotiation for the prisoners and they want many, many more prisoners that we have. The whole thing is just horrible to watch. They should, they should have had those prisoners back three years ago. And I will tell you this, if I am elected, before I serve office, those prisoners will be back here soon. You're saying it's like President Reagan, before you take the oath of office they are going to be afraid enough of Donald Trump that they're going to return them, just like the Iranians returned the hostages. Those prisoners will be back They will be back on our shores. All four of them. They won't even talk about the fourth, you know, the fourth they convicted of a crime, which was a nonsense deal, it was, you know, at a court that was a fixed court. But they have four of them and they're in there. I mean, one's in there because he's a Christian. One's in because he's a pastor. OK? And Christian. And I met his wife and she's lovely she doesn't know what's happening. She's like, you know, how can this be possible? She thought when they started the negotiation routinely that the prisoners would be allowed out. They're hostages, really, they're not prisoners, hostages, but they happened to be sitting in one of the worst prisons in the world. So if I win they will be back on our shores before I take office. Before I take off, I know you're a student of military history. Let me just go back for a second on the situation [Inaudible] an assassination in Sarajevo who no one even the Times of London didn't take it seriously right, for 30 days, turned into, because of existing treaties that people had signed with countries that had changed over the times, the treaties have been signed, people were locked into these treaties and, you know, the guns of August. Once rearmament started, once they started mobilizing, you couldn't stop it. It led to the beginning of the bloodiest century in mankind's history. I want to go back to Turkey. Understand you've got a conflict of interest, but when Turkey was allowed in NATO it was quite a different country than it is today. You definitely have an Islamist party that's on the rise. Erdogan has taken a very strong Islamist stance. I understand when you say you have a conflict of interest. I mean how do you make comfortable people who are not maybe part of this populist nationalist right, that are your natural constituency, but those in the middle that you're going to need to have to win, when they say, ‘Hey, look, this guy's got vested business ventures all over the world. How do I know he's going to stand up to Turkey?’ I'll tell you what, here is the way I do things. You don't want to have World War III over what we're talking about, OK? It's a, it's a problem. It's going to be a problem. ISIS is composed probably of 60,000 people, fighters. It's a problem that we should have been able to win easily but we haven't used the right military thought process. It's a process that we should, I will find the right people and believe me we will we will take it out. But this is not something, Steve, that you want to end up in World War III over. You don't want it. I don't want it, nobody wants it. Now, they're shooting down Russian planes, you know, you can just see this with incompetent leadership on our basis, there's a way of getting this whole thing resolved. This is not an irresolvable problem. If you look at Turkey it looks to me like they want to get something solved and Putin's being the tough guy and probably he should be, they shot down his plane. Now, they may have been flying over airspace. All right, so probably planes fly over airspace all the time but they shot down a plane and I guess shot down a helicopter and a lot of bad things happened. But this is a problem that's very resolvable. All right? So you're saying, that you as war leader of this country, say I'm not going to let this thing metastasize. I'm not going to let it start to go into other countries and drag other parties in, have a situation like a World War I, where all the sudden you've got nine or 10 parties at each other's throats. So tell me, how do you stop it from metastasizing? You know, it's funny, Steve. It's really interesting because you have some of these guys and they're very stiff, you know, guys like, as an example Bush and others, a couple of others, they think that my tone is very tough and they think my temperament is very tough. You know, I built this great company like you saw what were in filings and everyone is shocked at how great it is. It's great and beyond. And they don't even see the part of it how strong and good it is. And that's over, you know, vast regions. It's, it's something that we're all very proud of and it's a wonderful thing. I employ thousands of people and all of that stuff. But my temperament built it. I have a great temperament. I'm not a guy that's slow, though, and I'm not a guy that, you know, doesn't have energy like Bush. I'm not a guy that, you know, really, like, I could name each one of them you're talking about a bad temperament, this guy Kasich, he's like a lunatic. I mean, you watch him on the stage and he can't debate, he can't talk. He doesn't know what he's doing. I mean we have some bad temperaments up there, but we need a firm temperament, we need a strong temperament, but I'm for somebody that gets it done and gets it gets it fixed as opposed to going on. I listen to some of these people that were willing to go in and literally start World War III over Syria. ‘We don't want to talk to Russia. We want to go right after Russia we want to ... ‘ look, I'm tougher than all of them put together times 10. But there are times to fight and there are times that you don't have to fight. Who wants to fight? We have to rebuild our country. We're going to be tougher than anybody, we're going to have the greatest military in the world. But who wants to fight, who wants to fight over Syria and literally start World War III? If you listen to some of the people on the stage and if you listen to some of the people in the Senate, the two people in particular that you see sitting down all the time who absolutely have the wrong answer to this, by the way, I think you know what I'm talking about. You're going to end up in a world war. You're going to end up in a war over what? Over Syria. Over Syria. That's not what you end up in world wars over, OK? So I am the one that can get things done. I'm a deal maker. I will get Russia and I will get Turkey and I will get a couple of others. They'll all get along, I mean as much as you get along, but they'll get along. But it's going in the wrong direction right now. And we have a leader who is so incompetent and he's sitting over in wherever he is now. You never know from day to day, but only wants to talk about climate change, that's all he wants to talk about. And he thinks that climate change is a far bigger problem than Russia loaded up with nukes; China what they're doing in the South China seas where they're building, literally building islands, fortresses in the South China Sea because they have no respect for us, they have no respect for our president, and we have a guy talking about China, talking about climate change, and the Chinese are sitting there laughing, going along with everything he says, they won't do it anyway. Like Iran has already violated its agreement. Did you know that Iran's agreement has now already been violated? The ink isn't even dry and they've already been violated. So we have to have leadership that's respected by these other countries, these other countries are fine. I mean I have China as a tenant in one of my buildings, the biggest bank in China. I have a lot of different tentacles and that's good because I have relationships with everybody, but we have to, we have to get these people to treat us fairly because we're not being treated fairly on trade, we're not being treated fairly militarily. We're like the dummies that everybody laughs at, I'm telling you. I mean I know for a fact, I mean, I speak to the Chinese at the highest levels. They think we're dumb as hell and they're right. You know, you look at what's going on. They they can't believe what they get away with. They can't believe that on trade you know we have a $450 billion trade imbalance with China been going on for years. Nobody wants to talk about it. It's like a terrible secret. We have a $70 billion trade imbalance with Japan. Nobody even wants to talk about it. I'll get it fixed. Mr. Trump, I appreciate you taking as much time as you took. It's really fantastic having you on and one thing, you're very straightforward, you're very plain-spoken, people can see what side you come across. I really appreciate you coming on the show today. Thank you very much. You take care of yourself, Steve.
