LAUREN: THE TAX CUT WOULD YOU TAKE IT –>>PROBABLY THE OTHER PERMANENT, HAS A LONG WAY TO GO, WE WILL MAKE THAT PERMANENT FOR THE MIDDLE CLASS, WE WILL BE ANNOUNCING OVER THE NEXT 90 DAYS, THAT TO ME IS VERY IMPORTANT, WE HAVE GREAT HEALTHCARE INITIATIVES COMING UP, WE HAVE DONE WELL WITH HEALTH CARE ANYWAY, WE GOT RID OF THE INDIVIDUAL MANDATE, IF YOU LOOK AT THAT, THAT WAS THE END OF THE OBAMACARE, THAT WAS THE THING THAT PEOPLE COULDN’T, DO THEY COULDN’T AFFORD IT AND THEY WERE FORCED TO PAY HEALTH CARE, WE HAVE DONE REALLY WELL WITH HEALTH CARE, WE ARE COMING UP WITH A PLAN THAT’S GOING TO BE FANTASTIC. MARIA: WHAT ABOUT IN TERMS OF YOUR TRADE INITIATIVES, YOU MET WITH THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION PRESIDENT, WHAT DO YOU WANT EUROPE TO DO, BUY MORE AGRICULTURE IN ORDER FOR YOU TO HOLD BACK ON ADDITIONAL TARIFFS.>>SO WE’VE MADE GREAT TRADE DEALS, WE WILL BE STARTING PHASE 2, AS YOU KNOW I LEFT TARIFFS, 25% TARIFFS ON BECAUSE IT’S GOOD TO — THEY WANT TO START PHASE 2 RIGHT AWAY, SO DO I. WE WILL START RIGHT AWAY, USMCA GREAT, WE MADE THE 40 BILLION-DOLLAR WITH JAPAN ALSO, WE SAID WE WON’T DO THE TARIFFS BUT WE WILL DO 40 AND JAPAN IS A TREMENDOUS BUYER NOW, SOUTH CAROLINA, WE FIND, I FIND THAT THE EUROPEAN UNION IS TOUGHER TO DEAL WITH THAN ANYBODY, THEY’VE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF OUR COUNTRY FOR MANY, MANY YEARS, IT WAS ACTUALLY FORMED FOR THE PURPOSE OF TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE UNITED STATES, BUT THEY’VE TAKEN ADVANTAGE AND HAVE BEEN VERY TOUGH TO DEAL WITH BUT FOR ME THEY ARE EASY TO DEAL WITH AND I TOLD THEM, I MET WITH THE NEW HEAD THAT’S VERY NICE AND I DEALT WITH JOHN FOR A LONG TIME AND I DIDN’T WANT TO DO CHINA AND EUROPE AT THE SAME TIME, I SAID, LET ME FINISH CHINA FIRST, WHEN I FINISH WITH CHINA, FRANKLY ME CHINA, FRANKLY MÉXICO AND CANADA AS SOON AS WE DO THAT I WILL DO EUROPE, THEY’VE BEEN VERY DIFFICULT TO DEAL WITH BUT ULTIMATELY IT’LL BE VERY EASY BECAUSE IF WE CAN’T MAKE A DEAL WE WILL HAVE TO PUT A 25% TARIFF, 20 OR 25% AND I’M SURE THEY WILL MAKE A DEAL. THEY HAVE TO DO IT, THEY HAVE NO CHOICE, THEY REALLY HAVE NO CHOICE. AND I SAY THAT NOT AS A WISE GUY OR ANYTHING ELSE, THEY’VE TREATED US VERY BADLY, WE LOST $150 BILLION OVER A PERIOD OF MANY YEARS, WE’VE LOST $150 BILLION WITH THEM A YEAR IN TERMS OF DEFICITS, THEY HAVE TO DO IT. IT’S THE RIGHT THING TO DO AND THEY HAVE TO DO IT, I DID TELL HER, LOOK, I KNOW WE WILL MICK A DEAL BUT IF WE DON’T WE WILL HAVE TO TARIFF YOUR CARS AND OTHER THINGS COMING INTO THE UNITED STATES AND THEY WANT TO HAVE LIKE AN EMERGENCY MEETING AND WE WILL MAKE A DEAL. BY THE WAY, WITHOUT THAT, ZERO CHANCE JUST SO YOU UNDERSTAND, ZERO. BUT WITH THAT, 100%, WELL, LET ME SAY 99%. MARIA: LET ME ASK YOU ABOUT 2020, BERNIE IS LEADING IN IOWA, WHO DO YOU THINK THE NOMINEE WILL BE?>>MIKE HAS SPENT A FORTUNE, HE THOUGHT, THEY ALL THINK THAT — THEY ALL THOUGHT MIKE WOULD BE SECRETARY OF STATE IF HILLARY WON AND THAT WAS THE DEAL THEY SUPPOSEDLY MADE AND TERRY MCCULLOUGH WAS GOING TO GET IT AND THEY GAVE HIM FALSE INFORMATION, HE’S SPENDING A LOT OF MONEY, THEY ARE HAVING NO IMPACT. I’M HAVING MY BEST POLL NUMBERS YOU SEE THEM BECAUSE OF IMPEACHMENT HOAX MY POLLS ARE THE HIGHEST THEY’VE EVER BEEN BECAUSE IT’S A PHONEY DEAL, THE FUNDRAISING FOR THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS BY FAR THE MOST, I MEAN, THE NUMBERS ARE BIGGER THAN ANY NUMBERS THAT — I THINK THEY ARE BIGGER THAN AT THIS POINT, BIGGER THAN ANY NUMBERS ANY PARTY HAS EVER RAISED AND THAT’S BECAUSE OF THIS PHONEY DEAL ON THE IMPEACHMENT.>>BUT AT THE SAME TIME BLOOMBERG SAYS HE’S WILLING TO SPEND UP TO $2 BILLION TO TAKE YOU DOWN, HE SAID HE WOULD CONVICT IF HE WAS IN THE SENATE, WHAT KIND OF AN IMPACT DOES THAT MONEY HAVE?>>RIGHT NOW IT DOESN’T HAVE ANY IMPACT, HE’S WASTING HIS MONEY. HE’S A TERRIBLE SPEAK, HE CAN’T SPEAK PROPERLY AND HE’S NOT A CHARISMATIC GUY, HE’S GOT MONEY, HE WILL SPEND AS MUCH MONEY AS HE CAN AND HE HAS A REAL THING, HE’S GOT SOME KIND OF A DEAL GOING AND HE WANTS TO SPEND A LOT, BUT IT’S HAD NO IMPACT, HE’S ACTUALLY GONE DOWN IN POLLS, YOU LOOK AT RECENT ONES THAT CAME TODAY, BLOOMBERG HAS GONE DOWN IN THE POLLS, I DON’T KNOW EXACTLY, IF YOU GO BEFORE I RAN FOR OFFICE, HE SAID THE BEST THINGS ABOUT ME, GREAT THINGS ABOUT ME AND I’VE HELPED HIM IN THE PAST BUT HE SEEMS TO HAVE A PROBLEM AND THAT’S OKAY, I THINK THAT THE OTHER ONES, CRAZY BERNIE, I DON’T KNOW MAYBE HE’S REALLY SURGING, HE REALLY IS, ELIZABETH WARREN SEEMS TO BE GOING IN THE OTHER WAY AND JOE BIDEN DOESN’T SEEM TO BE DOING TOO WELL, FROM THE STAND POINT HE CAN’T — IT’LL BE VERY INTERESTING TO SEE WHETHER OR NOT HE MAKES IT. MARIA: HILLARY CLINTON ABOUT BERNIE, NO ONE LIKES, NO ONE WANTS TO WORK WITH HIM, HE GETS NOTHING DONE, PELOSI HAS HIM IN JURY DUTY AT THE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL, ARE THEY COLLUDING AGAINST BERNIE?>>WELL, THEY ARE, THEY ARE TRYING TO TAKE IT AWAY FROM HIM, WHEN HILLARY SAYS NOBODY LIKES HIM, NOBODY LIKES HER, THAT’S WHY SHE LOST, SHE HAD ADVANTAGE, SHE HAD THE OBAMA, SHE HAD EVERYBODY BEHIND AND IT WASN’T EVEN CLOSE, YOU LOOK AT 306 TO 223, SHE’S THE ONE THAT PEOPLE DON’T LIKE, IF I HAD MY CHOICE IN TERMS OF PERSONALITY I MIGHT TAKE HIM OVER, I PROBABLY WOULD TAKE NEITHER. AND BIDEN WILL BE INTERESTING BECAUSE HE CAN’T STRING TOGETHER A SENTENCE AND IF HE MAKES IT, IF HE MAKES IT, HE SEEMS TO HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF AN EDGE BUT IT’S RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING, BERNIE IS SURGING, THERE’S NO QUESTION ABOUT IT, BERNIE SEEMS TO BE THE PARTY WANTS BUT MY ATTITUDE IS WHOEVER IT IS IT IS. MARIA: I COULDN’T BELIEVE THAT THE IMPEACHMENT WAS STILL GOING ON AS WE WERE GETTING HERE THIS MORNING.>>CRAZY. MARIA: YOUR CRITICS ARE UP TO THE SAME, MATERIAL WITNESS, THEY ARE CHOOSING MCCONNELL OF COLLUDING WITH YOU TO COVER A CRIME, ARE YOU CONCERNED OF GETTING A FAIR TRIAL?>>THESE PEOPLE ARE CRAZY, THEY HAVE GONE TOTALLY NUTS, MCCONNELL, THEY SAY THINGS ABOUT HIM WITH RUSSIA, JILL STEIN, I DON’T KNOW JILL STEIN, GREEN PARTY, THEY SAY HE’S AN AGENT OF RUSSIA, THEN THEY SAID TULSI GABBARD, I DON’T KNOW HER, I KNOW ONE THING SHE ISN’T AGENT OF RUSSIA, THAT’S WHAT THEY SAID ABOUT ME, THESE ARE PEOPLE ARE NUTS, THEY HAVE GONE FAR LEFT AND NANCY IS A WOMAN WHO I CALL HER NERVOUS NANCY FOR A REASON, SHE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT HAS HAPPENED, SHE LOST HER PARTY, SHE DIDN’T WANT TO DO THIS AND WE ARE DOING VERY WELL, LOOK, I ALWAYS SAY VERY SIMPLE READ THE TRANSCRIPTS AND THEN ON TOP OF READING THE TRANSCRIPTS SPEAK TO THE PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE OR THE FOREIGN MINISTER WHO SAY NOTHING HAPPENED, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING HAPPENED, REMEMBER THIS, THEY GOT THEIR MONEY AND THEY GOT IT EARLY, BUT I WANT TO MAKE SURE ALSO IN ADDITION, WHY ISN’T GERMANY AND FRANCE AND UK AND ALL THESE OTHER COMPANIES IN EUROPE THAT ARE MUCH MORE AFFECTED THAN US, WHY AREN’T THEY PAYING SOMETHING? WE ARE ALWAYS LIKE THE FOOLS, SO I ASK THAT QUESTION. MARIA: YOU GOT THEM TO PAY MORE?>>YOU LOOK AT WHAT I DID WITH NATO, $530 BILLION MORE, NOT TOTAL, MORE, MY BIGGEST FAN IS SECRETARY GENERAL. MARIA: HE’LL BE ON THE SHOW.>>YOU SHOULD PUT HIM ON THE SHOW. MARIA: IS THE BEST OUTCOME A QUICK DISMISSAL OR THE BEST OUTCOME TO GET THE WITNESSES, GET THE VOTE FOR WITNESSES AND THEN BE ACQUITTED BY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE?>>I WATCHED SHIFTY SCHIFF, YESTERDAY I HAD MEETINGS ALL OVER THE PLACE, IN BETWEEN MEETINGS I GET TO SEE AND I WATCH HIS LIES, I WATCH WHERE THEY’VE ACTUALLY PLAYED A RERUN WHICH THEY SHOULDN’T EVEN DO, HE GOES BEFORE CONGRESS AND MAKES A STATEMENT THAT I MADE AND THAT’S WHY I RELEASED THE CONVERSATION BECAUSE IF I DIDN’T RELEASE IT PEOPLE WOULD HAVE SAID THAT I MADE THE STATEMENT THAT HE MADE, THIS GUY IS A FRAUD, HE’S A CORRUPT POLITICIAN, SO I THINK, YOU KNOW, I’M PRETTY MUCH DOING TO LEAVE THAT TO THE SENATORS, I HAVE A LOT OF RESPECT FOR THEM, I CAN SAY THAT, THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS NEVER BEEN SO UNIFIED, YOU HAVE SEEN THAT TOO, 195, 196 TO NOTHING IN THE HOUSE WHITE, 3 DEMOCRATS CAME TO OUR SIDE AND I THINK WE WILL HAVE SOME PEOPLE COME TO OUR SIDE. YOU KNOW, IT’S A HOAX, IT’S A TERRIBLE THING. MARIA: IT’S BEEN GOING ON FROM THE GET-GO.>>BEFORE I RAN. MARIA: IT’S NOT ENDING, LOOK AL GREEN SAID IF WE DON’T GET HIM THIS TIME, WE WILL KEEP GOING, HOW ARE YOU GOING TO DEAL WITH THIS WITH THE REST OF YOUR PRESIDENCY THAT THEY ARE CONSTANTLY TRYING TO TAKE YOU DOWN?>>SO I THINK MOST PEOPLE ARE NOW AGREEING NOBODY HAS DONE SO MUCH AS I’VE DONE IN THE FIRST 3 YEARS OF A PRESIDENCY, WHEN YOU LOOK AT REGULATIONS, TACK — TAX CUTS, REBUILDING THE MILITARY, TAKING CARE OF THE VETS, RIGHT TO TRY, SO MANY THINGS I’VE DONE, NOBODY HAS DONE ANYTHING LIKE THAT, YOU LOOK AT WHAT WE ARE DOING ON THE ENVIRONMENT, WE ARE DOING GREAT ON THE ENVIRONMENT, PEOPLE DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT, NOBODY HAS DONE WHAT WE HAVE DONE AND THAT’S DESPITE HAVING THE CONSTANT HARANGUE, I SAW MAXXINE WATTERS, I SAW THIS GUY GREEN,
