Maria Bartiromo

Very Positive
00:00:00-00:00:20 (21 sec)
Welcome back. Good morning, everyone. As promised, now, President Trump joining me live. The president telling his doctor, quote, “I feel great,” in a memo he released yesterday. Meanwhile, the president praised the Regeneron antibody cocktail, calling it, quote, “a cure,” prompting the company to seek emergency FDA approval overnight. 2

Maria Bartiromo

Very Positive
00:00:20-00:00:36 (16 sec)
Joining me right now is the president of the United States, in his first interview since his COVID-19 diagnosis, Donald J. Trump. Mr. President, thank you so much for being here. First question is, how are you feeling? How is the First Lady feeling this morning? 3

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:00:36-00:00:58 (22 sec)
She's feeling good. I'm feeling good. Really good. I mean, perfect. And we're ready to go. I'm ready to go except the quarantine situation that you have for a little while after you get tested or whatever the procedure is. But I'm ready to do -- and I'm looking forward to doing the rallies. I heard that the commission, a little while ago, changed the debate style. 4

Donald Trump

Neutral
00:00:58-00:01:16 (19 sec)
And that's not acceptable to us. I beat him easily in the first debate, according to the polls that I've seen, but I beat him easily in the -- I felt I beat him easily. I think he felt it too. He wouldn't answer any questions, and he had the protection of Chris Wallace all night long. It was -- I thought he -- I thought Chris Wallace was a disaster. 5

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:01:16-00:01:27 (10 sec)
But I beat him in the first debate. At the second debate we have a never Trumper as a host, but that's OK because I'd beat him in the second debate also. And -- but I'm not going to do a virtual debate. 6

Maria Bartiromo

Unknown
00:01:27-00:01:40 (14 sec)
So -- so you're not -- so, Mr. President, you're not going to do it because the CPD, the Commission on Presidential Debates, announcing this morning that the second presidential debate will be virtual. You're saying you're not going to participate? 7

Donald Trump

Leans Negative
00:01:40-00:01:57 (16 sec)
No, I'm not going to waste my time on a virtual debate. That's not what debating is all about. You sit behind a computer and do a debate. It's ridiculous. And then they cut you off whenever they want. I have a host, who I always thought was a nice guy, but I see he's a never Trumper, you know, came out that he's a never Trumper. 8

Donald Trump

Leans Negative
00:01:57-00:02:03 (6 sec)
And we do have some of them, Maria, believe it or not, because they don't like to win. And -- so, but I'm not doing -- I'm not doing a virtual -- 9

Maria Bartiromo

Unknown
00:02:03-00:02:05 (2 sec)
I -- I believe that moderator, at one point -- 10

Donald Trump

Unknown
00:02:05-00:02:09 (4 sec)
They -- they didn't even tell us about the debate, Maria. 11

Maria Bartiromo

Unknown
00:02:09-00:02:11 (2 sec)
At one point the -- so you just learned this, this morning? 12

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:02:11-00:02:31 (20 sec)
Yes, we learned it the same way you learned it. They called up two minutes ago, and it was announced. And they tried to protect Biden. Everybody is. They're trying -- like that NBC disaster where he went on the show with Lester Holt. It was like it was meant for a child. It wasn't meant for a grown person. 13

Donald Trump

Leans Positive
00:02:31-00:02:48 (17 sec)
He gets up and he says, we're not fracking. We're not fracking. He was fracking. For six months he was fracking. He was raising his -- his very thin hand and he was fracking. And now all of a sudden he's not fracking. Well, tell the Pennsylvania people that you're going -- it's ridiculous. He said he's not fracking. 14

Donald Trump

Unknown
00:02:48-00:02:51 (3 sec)
That's all he said. And then all of a sudden he goes to a fracking mode. 15

Maria Bartiromo

Unknown
00:02:51-00:02:51 ( sec)
Right. 16

Donald Trump

Very Negative
00:02:51-00:03:04 (12 sec)
And how about her, she committed her life to it. And all of a sudden she's a fracker. She's a big fracker. They're going to stop fracking the minute they get into office. They're lying to everybody. They're lying about so many different things. But you have to confront people. You can't do it over the computer. 17

Maria Bartiromo

Very Negative
00:03:04-00:03:19 (16 sec)
Yes, I want to talk to you about that. I want to talk to you about what -- what you heard last night. But -- but, Mr. President, you say you're not going to do this debate. Address the criticism, Mr. President, the criticism that you removed your mask for a photo op. You got to the top of the -- the steps, you removed it. 18

Maria Bartiromo

Slightly Negative
00:03:19-00:03:34 (15 sec)
People are worried about your recent diagnosis. Now you've got 30 plus people with coronavirus in and around the White House. Address that concern for us, Mr. President, as you tell the Commission on Debates you're not going to do this virtually. 19

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:03:34-00:03:53 (19 sec)
Yes, well, first of all, I think I'm better. I -- when -- when -- to a point where I -- I'd love to do a rally tonight. I wanted to do one last night. But I think I'm better to a point that I feel better than I did, you know, I jokingly said 20 years ago. I feel perfect. There's nothing wrong. I had a case. 20

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:03:53-00:04:20 (27 sec)
I -- I got it knocked out. I think it was Regeneron that was responsible for it. Because of that, it was sort of like almost a -- a gift from heaven because -- because of what I went through, and I had a -- you know, I felt pretty lousy. A lot of people did. A lot of people do. You know, no matter how good the security, you're not going to protect yourselves from this thing with just your standard anything unless you just literally don't come out. 21

Donald Trump

Positive
00:04:20-00:04:30 (10 sec)
And even those people found out -- did you see in New York City, the most heavily locked down place, the people that got it the most were the people that were caught in their houses, in their apartments, OK? It's -- it's one of those things that -- 22

Maria Bartiromo

Slightly Positive
00:04:30-00:04:33 (2 sec)
Well, you know what -- 23

Donald Trump

Positive
00:04:33-00:04:34 (1 sec)
Yes, go ahead, Maria. 24

Maria Bartiromo

Very Positive
00:04:34-00:04:43 (9 sec)
I'm glad you brought up New York because, Mr. President, I'm glad you brought up New York because, yesterday, Andrew Cuomo, the governor of New York, said that the city is going to be lockdown until November 3rd. 25

Donald Trump

Slightly Positive
00:04:43-00:04:43 ( sec)
Well -- 26

Maria Bartiromo

Unknown
00:04:43-00:04:48 (5 sec)
Not November 2nd, November 3rd, which, of course, is Election Day, Mr. President. 27

Donald Trump

Leans Positive
00:04:48-00:05:04 (16 sec)
Well, that's because they're trying to hurt the economy as much as possible, the Democrats. They want a November 3rd because this is where they figure the economy would hurt a little bit better. My numbers won't be as good. But, actually, our numbers are going to be great. Our numbers for the third quarter are going to be through the roof. 28

Donald Trump

Somewhat Negative
00:05:04-00:05:15 (10 sec)
Retail sales, employment, all of these numbers are going to be great. So I don't know what they're doing. It's a shame what's happened to New York. It's like a ghost town. It's like a sad, sad place, New York. 29

Maria Bartiromo

Very Positive
00:05:15-00:05:21 (6 sec)
I want to go -- yes. And this was your home. I mean, you know, you love New York. 30

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:05:21-00:05:22 (2 sec)
It was so sad. I have friends -- I have friends living there. They are leaving. 31

Maria Bartiromo

Positive
00:05:22-00:05:39 (17 sec)
Look, I want to go back to -- to the coronavirus for a moment because the testing at the White House, I know, is incredible, and everybody gets tested every day. You can't even come in to see you without getting tested. Every precaution was taken to protect you. Anybody who came within feet had to be tested. 32

Maria Bartiromo

Very Positive
00:05:39-00:05:53 (14 sec)
How is it possible that you did contract the coronavirus? And what kind of protections are you putting in place now? You say you feel great, but the media is out there saying, well, you're contagious. Do you feel that you are? I mean, obviously, you wouldn't feel that way if you're saying you are ready to go to a rally. 33

Donald Trump

Neutral
00:05:53-00:06:11 (18 sec)
No, I don't think I'm contagious, but we still have to wait -- I don't think I'm contagious at all. Well, first of all, if I'm at a rally, I stand by myself very far away from everybody. So whether I was or not. But I -- I don't -- I wouldn't -- I still wouldn't go to a rally if I was contagious. But, no, it takes a certain period of time. 34

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:06:11-00:06:35 (24 sec)
I feel that I'm -- I'm -- I feel that I'm great. You catch this thing. A lot of people caught it. Look, you have the governor of Virginia, he wore a mask all the time, you'd never seen the guy without a mask, he catches it. You have senators that wore masks all the time, Thom Tillis, a very good guy, who’s, I think, now going to win his race because there's a part -- his opponent happened to have not one affair but two affairs, OK? 35

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:06:35-00:06:56 (21 sec)
That was not good timing. And I think Thom Tillis is going to win his race. And he should win it. He's a good man. But he was known as "the mask," Mr. Mask we'd call him. He caught it. You catch this thing. It's, you know, it's -- it's particles of dust. It's tiny stuff. Now, as far as the White House is concerned, somebody got in. 36

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:06:56-00:07:13 (17 sec)
There was a day of celebration with Notre Dame, et cetera, et cetera. Somebody got in and people got affected. Whether it was there or something else. And, remember this, when you catch it, you get better. And then you're immune, you know? I -- as soon as everything goes away for me, you're immune. And -- 37

Maria Bartiromo

Unknown
00:07:13-00:07:15 (2 sec)
So how -- tell me how you felt. 38

Donald Trump

Unknown
00:07:15-00:07:15 (1 sec)
What? 39

Maria Bartiromo

Very Positive
00:07:15-00:07:30 (15 sec)
It's amazing to me that you're -- tell me -- tell me how you felt, what you went through. It's amazing to me that you're back in such strong form right now. How did that happen? You've been talking about Regeneron. Eli Lilly and Regeneron want FDA approval for emergency use at this point. Are they going to get it? 40

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:07:30-00:07:38 (8 sec)
Yes. And they're going to get it. Yes, they're going to get it. I -- I'm back because I'm a perfect, physical specimen and I'm extremely young. And so I'm lucky in that way. And -- 41

Maria Bartiromo

Unknown
00:07:38-00:07:41 (3 sec)
How -- how was it? What were your symptoms? How did you feel? 42

Donald Trump

Somewhat Negative
00:07:41-00:07:59 (18 sec)
And in all -- seriously, I don't have any -- I don't have heart problems. I don't have diabetes. I don't have any of the problems that you read about. Perhaps a couple of pounds we could lose here and there, but, you know, because a lot of people in that category. But, no, I'm in good health and I'm -- you know. 43

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:07:59-00:08:24 (25 sec)
Well, look, what happens is, if you're anywhere around this thing, you can catch it. People caught it. And I'm not just talking about this location, I'm talking about many other locations. Now, what happens is you get better. That's what happens, you get better. Now, we have drugs now that we didn't even know about four months ago, like Regeneron, like -- and I'm not even talking about Remdesivir. 44

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:08:24-00:08:46 (22 sec)
Remdesivir is, you know, it's fine. But -- but the Regeneron was -- I -- I view it as a cure, not just a therapeutic. I view it as a cure because I took it. And Eli Lilly has a great drug. I spoke to the head of it, David, last night, the company, very much along the lines of Regeneron. And they work in a very similar way. 45

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:08:46-00:09:11 (25 sec)
It's great. And what I'm doing is I'm going to supply this drug. It made me better, I will tell you right now. I walked in. I didn't feel great. I think I would have done it fine without drugs. It -- you know, you don't really need drugs. And you -- they also like to give you steroids, like a storied combination for a short period of time because that stop the swelling, like a baseball pitcher would use a steroid to, you know, when his arm blows up. 46

Donald Trump

Somewhat Positive
00:09:11-00:09:18 (7 sec)
They want to stop the swelling of the lungs in particular. And so they gave -- they gave me a steroid, which is a very easy thing to take. 47

Maria Bartiromo

Very Positive
00:09:18-00:09:19 ( sec)
Well, you said it was a blessing. 48

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:09:19-00:09:30 (11 sec)
But, no, I had tremendous luck with this Regeneron. And Eli Lilly, I would have had the luck -- what I'm doing now, and I don't know if you saw the video I made last night, but I made a video. I put it out. And thank -- 49

Maria Bartiromo

Very Positive
00:09:30-00:09:32 (3 sec)
Yes, I did. And you said it was a blessing in disguise. 50

Donald Trump

Positive
00:09:32-00:09:47 (15 sec)
A blessing in disguise. I'm -- I'm glad because I'm the leader. And I can't be like Biden where I hang out in a basement every day. Sure, he -- if I wanted to hang out in a basement, I wouldn't catch it, but I meet a lot of people and I have to. I’m the president of the country. I can’t hang around in a basement. 51

Donald Trump

Neutral
00:09:47-00:10:08 (21 sec)
So, I figured there would be a chance that I would catch it. Sometimes I’d be with -- in groups of -- for instance gold-star families. I met with gold-star families. I didn’t want to cancel that. But they all came in and they all talked about their son and daughter and father. And they all came up to me and they tell me a story, Maria. 52

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:10:08-00:10:28 (20 sec)
It was really amazing actually, beautiful but sad. And they come up and they tell me a story about my son, sir, was in Iraq or he was in Afghanistan. And sir, he did this and he did that and then he charged in order to save his friends. And yes, sir, he was killed but he saved his friends. He’s so brave, sir. 53

Donald Trump

Slightly Negative
00:10:28-00:10:45 (17 sec)
And they tell me these stories and I can’t say back up, stand ten feet, I just can’t do it. And I went through like 35 people and everyone had a different story. I could also say don’t tell stories. They’re telling the story of their son who just died or daughter -- 54

Maria Bartiromo

Unknown
00:10:45-00:10:46 ( sec)
Right. 55

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:10:46-00:11:06 (20 sec)
-- or husband who just died in a war or recently died, mostly over the last 10, 12 years but some very recent. And I can’t back up, Maria, and say give me room, I want room. Give me 12 feet, stay 12 feet away when you talk. They come within an inch of my face sometimes. They want to hug me and they want to kiss me. 56

Donald Trump

Very Negative
00:11:06-00:11:21 (15 sec)
And they do. And frankly, I’m not telling them to back up. I’m not doing it. But I did say it’s like -- it’s obviously dangerous. It’s a dangerous thing I guess if you go by the COVID thing. But I’m thinking -- 57

Maria Bartiromo

Positive
00:11:21-00:11:21 (1 sec)
Yes. 58

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:11:21-00:11:41 (20 sec)
Look, I look at the numbers. I figured that you probably -- that probably at some point I’d catch it and I’ll get better. That’s what happened. I’ve caught it. I could’ve been out of the hospital in one day. I had the Regeneron. And I don’t know what would’ve happened without the Regeneron. All I know is I had it and I was better within 24 hours. 59

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:11:41-00:11:44 (3 sec)
I felt perfect. I feel perfect now, Maria, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to speak to you. 60

Maria Bartiromo

Neutral
00:11:44-00:11:49 (5 sec)
And you are back in it sort of knee deep in work again. I want to ask you about the stimulus plan, Mr. President -- 61

Donald Trump

Leans Positive
00:11:49-00:11:59 (10 sec)
Yes. I was yesterday and the day before and the day before that. I worked from the hospital. I worked a full schedule. I missed very little -- 62

Maria Bartiromo

Slightly Positive
00:11:59-00:11:59 ( sec)
Well -- 63

Donald Trump

Unknown
00:11:59-00:12:00 (1 sec)
-- time. 64

Maria Bartiromo

Very Positive
00:12:00-00:12:15 (15 sec)
-- you’re calling for aid now. You want aid for the airlines, for small business $1,200 checks but you just said that you were shutting down talks with Nancy Pelosi. How do you want to see aid play out and what do you want as far as a priority on stimulus? 65

Donald Trump

Somewhat Positive
00:12:15-00:12:31 (16 sec)
Well, I shutdown talks two days ago because they weren’t working out. Now they are starting to work out. We’re starting to have some very productive talks. And she wants it to happen too. She doesn’t want it not to happen. I believe she wants it to happen because it’s so good for our country. We really need it. 66

Donald Trump

Very Negative
00:12:31-00:12:50 (19 sec)
It wasn’t our workers fault. It wasn’t our airlines fault that China did this terrible thing to us that I will not be forgetting about that. China did this. This was all done by China. And we shouldn’t be hurting our workers because China out the curse on because this was a horrible scourge, a horrible thing that they did. 67

Donald Trump

Positive
00:12:50-00:13:13 (23 sec)
And so I said -- I said, look, we’re not getting anywhere, shut it down. And I’m -- I didn’t want to waste time but in any event, after that we got back, both sides very capable. We got back, we started talking again and we’re talking about airlines and we’re talking about a bigger deal than airlines. We’re talking about a deal with $1,200 per person. 68

Donald Trump

Leans Positive
00:13:13-00:13:18 (5 sec)
We’re talking about other things. But it’s not anybody’s fault. 69

Maria Bartiromo

Unknown
00:13:18-00:13:18 ( sec)
So you -- 70

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:13:18-00:13:34 (16 sec)
They were trying to get things and we were trying to get things and it wasn’t going anywhere. I shut it down. I don’t want to play games. And then we reopened and I see the markets are doing well but I think we have a really good chance of doing something. And Nancy Pelosi, look, she’s not my favorite person. 71

Donald Trump

Very Negative
00:13:34-00:13:54 (20 sec)
She impeached me for no reason. So when you get impeached for no reason you have a little bit of a tell-tale lag. But she impeached me over a phone call that was absolutely perfect, OK? And everybody knew it and they never had a chance. And -- but I start to go through a process which is ridiculous. So, it’s not like -- 72

Maria Bartiromo

Slightly Positive
00:13:54-00:13:55 (2 sec)
Well, the impeachment trial -- 73

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:13:55-00:13:57 (2 sec)
-- she’s the greatest person in the world. 74

Maria Bartiromo

Negative
00:13:57-00:14:16 (19 sec)
The impeachment trial was not based -- was not based on any actual crime. But I want to talk about that because you’ve been facing incredible resistance your entire term and you’ve taken some real bold action this week authorizing the disclosure of all of the documents related to the Russia hoax -- 75

Donald Trump

Positive
00:14:16-00:14:16 ( sec)
Yes. 76

Maria Bartiromo

Positive
00:14:16-00:14:48 (32 sec)
-- Mr. President. We now know from these documents that John Ratcliffe unveiled that it was Hilary Clinton’s idea to tie you to Russia in some way. It was successful. The whole country was talking about it for two and a half years. But what comes next, Mr. President? We can have all of these documents, we can see exactly what happened but unless John Dorn comes out with a report or indictments unless Bill Barr comes out with a -- a -- some kind of a ruling here, do you think this is resonating on the American people? 77

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:14:48-00:15:10 (22 sec)
Unless Bill Barr indicts these people for crimes, the greatest political crime in the history of our country, then we're going to get little satisfaction unless I win and we'll just have to go, because I won't forget it. But these people should be indicted, this was the greatest political crime in the history of our country and that includes Obama and it includes Biden. 78

Donald Trump

Slightly Negative
00:15:10-00:15:32 (22 sec)
These are people that spied on my campaign and we have everything. Now they say they have much more, OK? And I say, Bill, we've got plenty, you don't need any more. We've got so much, Maria, even -- just take a look at the Comey report, 78 pages of kill, done by Horowitz, and I have a lot of respect for Horowitz, and he said prosecute. 79

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:15:32-00:16:02 (30 sec)
He recommended prosecute and they didn't prosecute. I was -- I couldn't believe it, but they didn't do it, because they said we have much bigger fish to fry. Well, that's OK, they indicted Flynn for lying and he didn't lie. They destroyed many lives, Roger Stone, over nothing. They destroyed lives. Look at Manafort, they sent in a black book, it was a phony black book, phony, they made up a black book of cash that he got from Ukraine or someplace and he didn't get any cash. 80

Donald Trump

Unknown
00:16:02-00:16:04 (2 sec)
It was a phony book. 81

Maria Bartiromo

Unknown
00:16:04-00:16:05 (1 sec)
So, I mean, what -- 82

Donald Trump

Unknown
00:16:05-00:16:08 (3 sec)
What they've done to people, Carter Page -- 83

Maria Bartiromo

Slightly Positive
00:16:08-00:16:12 (4 sec)
Well, I mean, Brennan, John -- and -- we're going to have Carter Page coming on, he's going to tell his story. And we just heard from George Papadopoulos -- 84

Donald Trump

Positive
00:16:12-00:16:12 ( sec)
Good. 85

Maria Bartiromo

Very Positive
00:16:12-00:16:27 (15 sec)
-- their lives have been completely changed. John Brennan briefed President Obama on this. What else is needed to ensure that the American people understand what took place, trampling on American people's rights and liberties before the election? 86

Donald Trump

Leans Negative
00:16:27-00:16:46 (19 sec)
Look, we have all the evidence in the world, in addition to that I released everything, every document, I don't care what it pertains to, I released everything. I've declassified, I'm the only one in the country that has the power to do that. I've declassified everything. I did it a year ago, actually, for Bill Barr. 87

Donald Trump

Negative
00:16:46-00:17:03 (17 sec)
I declassified everything so they would have no -- so there's not a document they can't have. But, it's still not that easy, you have a deep state, you have a group of people that don't want to have documents shown, which tells you bad thing, you know, but they -- they have to give them ultimately and we're getting them, you know. 88

Donald Trump

Yesterday John -- John gave -- John Ratcliffe, who's terrific, he gave over 1,000 pages of documents and that people couldn’t get. And they're breaking down, the FBI slowly but surely giving us what they want. Disappointing how they're responding. 89

But how come we haven't -- how come we haven't seen this stuff before? We had a Mueller Report, a Michael Horowitz Report, a Senate Intel report and where was Christopher Wray in all of this? Let me ask you, Mr. President, address -- address Christopher Wray. Will you replace him in a second term? 90

Donald Trump

Very Negative
00:17:33-00:17:49 (16 sec)
Well, I don't want to say that yet, he's been disappointing. He talks about, you know, even the voting thing that he doesn't see the voting ballots as a problem. There's thousands of ballots right there, you pick up any paper in the country practically and they're cheating all over the place on the ballots. 91

Donald Trump

Very Negative
00:17:49-00:18:09 (19 sec)
So, how is that not a problem? That's a much bigger problem than China or Russia if you look at it. It's a much bigger problem So when, you know, when you say that, oh, I don't see that as a problem. Pick up the newspaper and read, and they lost 1,000 ballots in -- or were defrauded in North Carolina, 500 ballots were sent to Virginia erroneously. 92

When you look at what happened in -- just take a look at what happened in New York with the Carolyn Maloney race, it was a disaster how they were able to give her that victory. I don't know the other guy, he was a Democrat in the primary, but it was just a small primary. [Crosstalk] 93

Ballots are being thrown in the trash. Ballots are being sent to dead people. I have another story everyday on this situation. What are you going to do about it, Mr. President? If they cheated in 2016, they're going to cheat again. How are you going to stop this and ensure that you have the wherewithal to fight back if it's all ballot lies? 102

He's a real beauty, you know, he comes out of the -- he comes out of the political party, he got to be governor. You can't even get a site, if you want to make a speech in Nevada, you can't even get a site, I got a site because I'm president, but you can't even get a site. It's very hard to get a political site to make a speech for -- to have thousands of people show up. 106

They have them all over the place, but you know, he makes it so that it's very difficult. Anybody else can't get a site. And he's in charge of the ballots. And there's bad things happening out there. Now, we have law enforcement watching him, very strong. U.S. attorney is watching him very strongly. The U.S. marshal is watching. 107

Donald Trump

Very Positive

In New Mexico, a state that I think we can win, we have the U.S. marshal and the U.S. attorney watching him. So it's not -- it's not easy for them because we've got people watching. Nobody ever had. But it's a corrupt system because they're sending out millions of ballots. Now, when you send out millions of ballots, when you're the sender, you can send them wherever you want. 108

Well, they keep bringing up the fact that you will not say if I lose I will leave the White House, Mr. President. And Hillary Clinton told Joe Biden he needs to contest this election, not concede at all. So what do you think, is this election going to be contested if you win? 118

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:21:24-00:21:44 (20 sec)
Well, I'll tell you what I think. Yes, I'll tell you what I think. If you were running for office, and if you see thousands and thousands of ballots being thrown into rivers, and they have your name on it in some cases, in other words people -- we had military ballots where people voted for me, military, the military's going to vote for me because I -- I rebuilt the military. 119

Donald Trump

I love the military, despite their phony story that they made up about standing at a grave. It's a totally made up story. They don't even have any witnesses. They made it up. And that's why they're lowlifes because then they went -- they made it up and then they went with the story they know wasn't true but they use it all the time. 120

Donald Trump

00:21:58-00:22:16 (18 sec)
Actually, it was Joe Biden that called the military a bunch of dirty bastards and he said it on tape. He called them a bunch of dirt bastards and he said it on tape. Nobody brings that up. The press doesn't bring that up. They made up a story with me about what I said. It's the most angered I was in this campaign when they did that. 121

Shortly -- shortly by the end of the year. Yes, so what's happened is, you know, we're in negotiations. But, look, the other side's tired of fighting, too, 19 years. It's been 19 years. And I've been bringing them home. We're down to 4,000 troops in Afghanistan. And I'll have them home by the end of the year. 128

Donald Trump

00:22:49-00:23:07 (18 sec)
They're coming home, you know, as we speak. And -- 19 years is enough. They're acting as policemen, OK, they're not acting as troops. We have the greatest troops in the world. I wiped out a hundred percent of ISIS caliphate. I killed Soleimani. I killed al-Baghdadi. Names that everybody -- bigger names than Osama bin laden. 129

Donald Trump

Very Negative
00:23:07-00:23:34 (27 sec)
Al-Baghdadi founded ISIS. Soleimani was the worst terrorist in 50 years. I killed both of them. Nobody could find them until I came along. But we've done a great job. Our soldiers have been fantastic. I've rebuilt our military. I want our military home because, you know what, we're all over the world. We're in all these different sites fighting in countries that nobody ever heard of and it hurts us because we're -- you wear out your military. 130

Vice President Pence accused the Biden campaign of plagiarism when it comes to what his plan is. It looks awfully similar to your plan in terms of bringing jobs back to America, firing up the manufacturing industry here. What was your reaction to the debate? What wasn't said that you would have liked to come out and where do you think the most striking moments were? 140

Donald Trump

00:24:22-00:24:44 (22 sec)
I thought that wasn't even a contest last night. She was terrible. She was -- I don't think you could get worse. And totally unlikable. And she is. She's a Communist. She's left of Bernie. She's rated left of Bernie by everybody. She's a Communist. We're going to have a Communist -- and she's going to be -- in my opinion, within a month. 141

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:24:44-00:24:56 (12 sec)
Look, I sit next to Joe and I looked at Joe. Joe's not lasting two months as president, OK, that's my opinion. He's not going to be lasting two months. You know, they all like to say, oh, it was so nice, he took his ads down. 142

So you think she'll be the president? 143

Donald Trump

00:24:58-00:25:18 (20 sec)
He didn't take his ads down. It was all nonsense. He never -- he never took his ads down. No, I -- no, she's a Communist. She's not a socialist. She's well beyond a socialist. Take a look at her views. She wants to open up the borders to allow killers and murderers and rapists to pour into our country. We have the tightest borders we've ever had right now. 144

Donald Trump

Very Negative
00:25:18-00:25:38 (21 sec)
I have the wall. It's up to 350 miles long. It will be finished very soon. It's had a tremendous impact. And, frankly, we're working along very well with Mexico. But it's hard to get into our country. And when we do have people in our country that are bad, I throw them out. We're throwing out thousands -- tens of thousands of people and they're murderers and they're rapists. 145

Donald Trump

Very Negative
00:25:38-00:25:57 (19 sec)
She wants to allow everybody in stay in our country. Look at the manifesto. You know, Bernie lies about all this stuff because, you know, Bernie is -- is the guy that's -- that's -- crazy Bernie, he's the one that's really angry, and so is AOC, because, you know, he thought that they had a man in Biden that was going to agree to what they agreed to. 146

Donald Trump

Slightly Negative
00:25:57-00:26:07 (9 sec)
And that's no fracking, open borders, you know, sanctuary cities, all of this stuff. He's still probably going to do sanctuary cities because, you know, that, for whatever reason. 147

Right. 152

Donald Trump

Positive
00:26:14-00:26:32 (17 sec)
And then he gets up and he says, no, we're going to frack. Pennsylvania will never go for him because Pennsylvania has a million jobs that are fracking. Fracking is energy. That's what they do now, fracking. And you got a million jobs that are energy. Their -- their energy costs would triple if they didn't do fracking. 153

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:26:32-00:26:52 (20 sec)
The energy costs in our country would quadruple if we didn't frack. So he goes around bragging to the liberal Democrats and the radical left, there will be no fracking. Then he gets on the stage, in a more normal time, with people like -- that are normal, like us, that have to have fracking for the jobs, for the cost, for the -- we're energy independent now because of fracking. 154

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:26:52-00:26:56 (4 sec)
And he says, oh, yes, I'll frack. Take a look at the pictures. I'm sure you've seen them 100 times. 155

She made it even more a fact. She laughed about it. 161

Maria Bartiromo

Neutral
00:27:06-00:27:22 (16 sec)
And yet she said it was a fact, that -- that, you know, she said, that's a fact. She -- she sort of put an exclamation point on it. But this was one of your key themes in terms of turning the economy around. You opened up the spigot on energy, along with cutting taxes and cutting regulation. 162

Donald Trump

Somewhat Positive

Totally. We're he totally energy independent. 163

Maria Bartiromo

Yes, go ahead. 168

Donald Trump

We're cutting middle income taxes substantially. They know that. We're -- that's what made this thing successful, between that and the regulation cuts. He's going to put all the regulations back on. It's going to take you 20 years to build a highway. I took highway construction down from 19 years to probably one by the time I totally finish it to get it -- and -- and, by the way, if it doesn't work, it's, you know, going to get rejected for environmental or safety reasons. 169

Donald Trump

Somewhat Negative
00:28:06-00:28:23 (17 sec)
But he's -- he's going to put them back. It was taking you 20 years to get a road approved. Twenty years to get a road -- think of it, you start as a young man, by the time you're a middle aged man, they haven't approved it. And, in many cases, then they reject it. You couldn't get anything approved. You couldn't get plants approved. 170

Donald Trump

Slightly Negative
00:28:23-00:28:33 (10 sec)
You couldn't get energy approved. You couldn't get anything it was so crazy. I showed you that list of -- of things that you have to go through to get a permit in this country for a simple factory. 171

It was -- it was 30 feet high. I've taken it down to a year from it could be 20 years, it could be 15, it could be 12. It was massive. And what that would do, it stopped everything. I think that was, frankly, a bigger thing than even the tax cuts. But he -- he wants to end our tax cuts. Two things will happen, we won't have any jobs, all of the companies that are pouring into our country, of which there are many, especially car companies from Japan and Germany and other places, they're going back. 173

Donald Trump

Neutral
00:29:01-00:29:19 (17 sec)
They're going to go back. If you do that, they're going to go back because our taxes were so onerous and our regulations were so onerous that even if they want -- wanted to come. I have many car companies coming into this country. You know when I was -- when I first started, we hadn't had a car company come in, in many years. 174

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:29:19-00:29:37 (19 sec)
They weren't coming into this country. This country was off bounds. Now they take advantage of it. They make their car in Japan, Germany, China, and then sell it into our company -- our country. We wouldn't charge. We'd have maximum 2 percent tariff. But we wouldn't even charge them that. And I saved the chicken tax on the truck with South Korea. 175

Donald Trump

The deficient was coming way down with China for the first time in 30 years, way, way with China. I was taking in billions of dollars, I took in $28 billion, I gave the money to the farmers because the farmers were targeted by China as a way to get me to negotiate. I said no, instead of that and that’s why other presidents, a more normal type president like a sleepy Joe type, China ripped them off for years and years. 183

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:30:37-00:30:56 (19 sec)
I said to China, listen, you want to play games, so what they do is they say, listen, if you don't give us everything we want, we’re not going to buy any corn and we're not going to buy soybeans, we’re not going to buy beef. And I say that’s OK, don’t buy it. I went to the farmers, I said look, we got to play a game with these people but I’m going to put tariffs on you, nobody even heard of tariffs. 184

Donald Trump

Unknown
00:30:56-00:31:05 (9 sec)

Yes, we are. Well, I’m going to use tariffs on China because they want to take them off. We’re getting billions of dollars, I was going to tell you that we get 28 billion dollars, because our farmers that’s what they got targeted for. I gave all of the money to the farmers, that we had tens of billions left over, which goes into the Treasury. 192

China getting killed, we were building -- don't forget, you have been a great reporter a long time. The year 2019, China -- if you go back 10 years, 2019 China takes us over the largest economy on earth. Well, prior to this plague coming in, still by the way, but prior to the plague coming in, China was doing lousy compared to us. 193

Donald Trump

Very Positive
00:32:20-00:32:38 (18 sec)
We were upping them, we were getting bigger and bigger compared to them and we were doing great. We were way ahead of China. Nobody -- China was never going to catch us if we had a smart guy as president. And the tariffs were pouring in billions of dollars. Then I made trade deal and it was a really good deal, they broke it, if you remember. 194

Donald Trump

Negative
00:32:38-00:32:55 (17 sec)
I made a bigger trade deal and they broke it at the last minute. With two days left, they broke the deal, they said we can't agree to this. You know, the opening up of China and all the things, so I broke off the deal. Then they came back, and I made a partial deal. It was a deal for the -- a good deal for manufacturers, farmers, et cetera. 195

00:33:01-00:33:24 (23 sec)
I made a great deal with China, and our farmers -- you know, two weeks ago they made a largest order of corn in history, the largest order of soybeans in history because they want to keep me happy because they know that I’m a hair trigger when it comes to them and I’m sick of them. Everything that we have, we have that COVID, the China virus because of them. 198

You look back at other, other infections that we’ve gotten because of them. This isn't the first time and by the way, the – the N1 -- H1H1N1 that she always calls -- he always calls it N1H1, the swine flu H1N1, we tried to tell them every time I have to correct him on that. But the -- big deal, if you look at that, he did a horrible job of running it, it was a joke, his own person, Ron Plain, Plain, Ron Plain said he didn't know what he was doing, it was a horror show, he wouldn’t run it. 199

Donald Trump

Negative
00:34:00-00:34:08 (9 sec)
He didn’t -- if he ran this you would have had 2.2 million deaths as opposed to over 200,000 and one is too many because it was China's fault. But if he ran this, you would have had -- 200

If we don’t, it’s the Republicans’ fault, because there's no reason why not. Look, I'm president and it's happened 29 times. She made another mistake last night, what she said about Lincoln, she was wrong about that, of course, you know. They -- they were -- they say things, like we go over it, they say we're not going to do this and they're going to do it. 209

Donald Trump

Very Negative
00:34:59-00:35:20 (21 sec)
They say -- they just make -- I've never seen such liars as this, they're worse than crooked Hillary, she was worse in other ways. She was worse when she delete 33,000 e-mails illegally and she should be indicted for that. If people delete e-mails in a regular court case, she delete 33,000 e-mails and nothing happens to her. 210

Donald Trump
