What about infrastructure? When is that going happen? We're going to do infrastructure very quickly. We've got the plan largely completed, and we'll be filing over the next two or three weeks, maybe sooner. You said you were disappointed in the Republicans in Congress. Why? Well, disappointed. They're friends of mine, they're really special people, whether it's Freedom Caucus or Tuesday orThursday or let's go have a drink, that group. They're great people, I know them all. And I can honestly say, a lot of them, I can honestly say I don't dislike any of them. I like almost all of them a lot. And you know, we have some votes that have never voted positively. But now we're the governing party. Before it didn't matter. They could vote no. It wouldn't matter because President Obama was going veto everything and they didn't have the Senate. Now we have the Senate, the House, and the White House. But these are great people. And I think you're going to see the Republican Party really come together. So they're kind of learning what it's like to be in charge. Well, they're governing now. They've never governed. You know, they haven't governed. Now they're governing. So now it's just not like saying no. Before they could say no, it didn't matter, because it wasn't going to get approved anyway, so what difference does it make? Now we're governing. And I'll tell you what, the Republican Party, they're great people. And frankly, a lot of the Democrats are great. They have bad leadership. Schumer's not a leader, he doesn't know how to lead. I know him for a long time, he has no leadership ability. And he's bringing them so far left they're never going to win another election, believe me. What's the difference between negotiating in Washington versus negotiating in business? Well, I think the big difference is, for what we're doing here, Washington, you really need heart, because you're talking about a lot of people. Whereas business, you don't need so much heart. You want to make a good deal. [Break in Interview] Every president makes the Oval Office theirs. What have you done to make this yours? Well, a lot of things. We had these incredible flags including the American flags. And they were in different rooms. And they were always being pushed around because they didn't have enough room. And I said, "How beautiful, the base, the flags, Army, Navy, Marine Corps. I mean, just so beautiful. Just so beautiful." The Coast Guard flag over here. And I said, "Well, let's see how they look in the Oval Office." So the flags were up. The picture of Thomas Jefferson I put up. The picture of Andrew Jackson I put up because they said his campaign and my campaign tended to mirror each other. So we did a lot of -- actually we did a lot of work. It's -- it's a much -- it's a much different -- look than it was previously. What would Fred -- that's a picture of Fred Trump over there. That's my father. Yeah. I have -- one coming of my mother. A beautiful -- What would he think? Well, he'd be very proud. He was a Brooklyn builder. I learned a lot from him. He's a great guy, good heart. Tough guy, but a good heart, great heart. And he'd be very proud. You said the White House was like a cocoon sometimes. Tell me about that. Well, I was very well known as you understand prior to this. But that was a different type of -- that was a different world. This is something you are really in your own little world. Secret Service, they're phenomenal. But they are all over the place. I mean, they are the real deal. They're all over the place. If I wanted to get out, drive my car to a certain location, and go do something, you can't do that anymore. Haven't been able to do that for a long period of time. But all of that I understand. I guess I assumed that that would happen if you won. And most importantly I think we're doing a very good job. And I enjoy it. Tell me about -- what -- you -- you do a lot of your work in here, right? I do. I'm here a lot actually. Why in here and not other places? I feel very warm toward the Oval Office. It's a great symbol. Also when I have certain people that we want to negotiate -- for instance, I was negotiating to reduce the price of the big fighter jet contract, the F-35, which was totally out of control. I will save billions and billions and billions of dollars. And calling from here and meeting here and having meetings on that contract, I think gives you great additional power, if you want to know the truth. So what's your -- Other people have come in. Big people from big companies have been to the White House 50 times. In one case, I won't say who, somebody you know very well, the head of a major major company. I said, "Have you been to the White House before?" "Yes, 51 times." I said, "Oh good, so you've been to the Oval Office." "No, I was never brought to the Oval Office." I said, "Come on, I'll bring you to the Oval Office." The person came into the Oval Office and started to cry. This is a tough person by the way. Came into the Oval Office and started to cry. Now, this -- a person with a magnificent office with beautiful glass walls and everything else. You understand. You've seen those offices before. But there is something very special about this space. If somebody's going to behave like that in front of you in here, how do you know that people aren't always just telling you what you want to hear? You mean, with the tears? Is it? No, just, you know, they see the power of the White House and the Oval Office and they think, "Yes, Mr. President." Who tells you no? Oh, I think when it comes to the Oval Office, I think everybody means that. You know, when I have foreign leaders here, no matter what country, no matter how big. We had -- Chancellor Merkel. We had -- we have them all. They all come here. They still take notice at the Oval Office. Right. And they mean it. But that's what I mean. One of the worries about a presidency is that everybody tells you yes. Nobody helps you figure out where your blind spots are. So how do you -- how do -- Well -- -- you find that? How do you get? -- that's, I guess, it's one of those things in life you have to be able to figure it out. Maybe I've been figuring that out anyway long before I got here. Mm hm. But some things you have to be able to figure out. But this is a special place. The White House is special. The Oval Office, very special. Any other gadgets you've gotten installed here since you came? Well, everyone thinks that this is very ominous right here. See this? These are phones. These are very, you know, secure phones. But this is a -- very ominous looking because of the red button. What does that get you -- Well -- -- when you press the red button? -- it gets you a Coke or gets you a Pepsi. One or the other, it'd have to be. Any other cola companies I should mention? Right? But it gets you something. But every time I press that, people -- Worry you're -- In fact I have fun with people. They'll be sitting down. I changed the -- the way it works. I'll have people sitting here. Used to be they never had chairs that anybody can remember in front of the desk. But I've always done it this way where I'm at the desk and I have people here. But usually they would sit on the sofas. But this is the Resolute desk. It's a great desk with a phenomenal history. Many great presidents were behind this desk. And then some choose other desks. They have about seven desks that you can actually choose. But I like this. This was FDR. It was Ronald Reagan. It was Kennedy. And there's some great presidents behind this desk. George W. Bush said the reason the Oval Office is round is there are no corners you can hide in. Well, there's truth to that. There is truth to that. There are certainly no corners. And you look, there's a certain openness. But there's nobody out there. You know, there is an openness, but I've never seen anybody out there actually, as you could imagine. But he -- what he meant was it's -- all comes -- Sure. Sure. -- back to you. Sure. It does. But I think that's true anyway. But it does, there's no question. When did that hit you, that you're -- the magnitude of that -- of the office? And that idea that you were -- regardless of what happened, your name -- the buck stopped with you? It's the bigness of the office. It's the bigness of the transactions. It's the bigness of the deals. You look at -- the order of planes. It's bigger than any order of planes. You look at aircraft carriers that cost 10 billion and 12 billion dollars to build and submarines that cost 5 billion to build. It's the magnitude. But most importantly, you know, the decisions. Like, when I make the decision to go with Syria, the 59 Tomahawk missiles. Unbelievable technology. We have unbelievable talent. But those are tough decisions. Those aren't, like, decisions that I'm going to buy a building -- Tough why? Because it's human lives. Killing people. You're killing people. And you can kill the wrong people, too. You know, those things go off and they end up in a town or they end up in a city. And you have another tragedy on your hands. So, these decisions are unbelievable -- you know, in terms of the importance because it's human -- it's -- it's -- it's killing. I hate it. But things have to be done. How do you learn that skill? Who do you call to say what's it like to -- There's nobody you can call. Did President Obama give you any advice that was helpful? That you think, wow, he really was -- -- Well, he was very nice to me. But after that, we've had some difficulties. So it doesn't matter. You know, words are less important to me than deeds. And you -- you saw what happened with surveillance. And everybody saw what happened with surveillance -- Difficulties how? -- and I thought that -- well, you saw what happened with surveillance. And I think that was inappropriate, but that's the way -- What does that mean, sir? You can figure that out yourself. Well, I -- the reason I ask is you said he was -- you called him "sick and bad". Look, you can figure it out yourself. He was very nice to me with words, but -- and when I was with him -- but after that, there has been no relationship. But you stand by that claim about him? I don't stand by anything. I just -- you can take it the way you want. I think our side's been proven very strongly. And everybody's talking about it. And frankly it should be discussed. I think that is a very big surveillance of our citizens. I think it's a very big topic. And it's a topic that should be number one. And we should find out what the hell is going on. I just wanted to find out, though. You're -- you're the president of the United States. You said he was "sick and bad" because he had tapped you -- I'm just -- You can take -- any way. You can take it any way you want. But I'm asking you. Because you don't want it to be -- You don't -- -- fake news. I want to hear it from -- You don't have to -- -- President Trump. -- ask me. You don't have to ask me. Why not? Because I have my own opinions. You can have your own opinions. But I want to know your opinions. You're the president of the United States. Okay, it's enough. Thank you. Thank you very much.
