amazing week. i want to congratulate a lot of people including the candidates. this is not easy stuff when you are doing this. i must tell you it is very important as a republican that our senators and congressmen get reelected and we put a good group of people together, that we keep the people that are there. not all of them are on my side but we have some terrific people. it is very important. one of the things i'm most happy about is the turnout has been massive for every week. whether it is south carolina or any place, it started with new hampshire and it really -- iowa. the matter where you go it is records per the single biggest story in politics today. what is happening at the booth. a tremendous amount of people
are coming out to vote. some states are getting -- one has 102% increase over four years ago. it is amazing. probably more than 50. millions and millions of people, whereas the democrats are down 30-35% from what they were. we are up by 50% and even more than that. millions of people. i think it's the biggest tory in politics. i hope the republicans will embrace it. we have democrats coming over. there he importantly. we have independents coming over. they haven't done that probably ever. with all of these people coming over we're going to have something special. if i win and i get to go against hillary, polls are showing that i beat her. when you take advantage, we will take many people away from the democrats and many people away
that normally go democrat as independents. we are seeing that. people come over here who have never voted republican or thought about it and they came and voted republican. i will tell you another group of people i have seen. i will be signing autographs and talking to people. i've had many people say -- it was a beautiful thing to hear, mr. trump, i'm 67 years old. i have never ever voted before. i've never come close to voting before. this is the first time i will ever vote. that is so amazing. [applause] they do it with such spirit. it's great. i want to thank the special interests and lobbyists. [laughter] [applause] they obviously did something to drive these numbers.
but i want to congratulate them because to raise that much money that quickly is a pretty good feet. many of them are my friends but they have to gamble. i want to thank paul ryan. he could not have been nicer. he was very encouraging. great respect. [applause] ted cruz is interesting. i am theays saying only one that can beat donald trump. for donald vote trump and going to be miserable. but he is the only one that can beat donald trump. i've heard it so many times, but he never beats me. take a look. meaning he rarely beats me. we are going to do well. ted cruz is going to have a hard time with certain states. one of the things we do is we
get up new york. i'm going to do great. we get to new jersey, i'm going to be great. what chris christie did to marco. great prosecutor. when he came and called he said i have seen it, it is amazing thing. many people have called it a movement. covers on time magazine. part of the movement is what i said before. the people want to be involved. when chris called and sarah palin called, and jerry falwell junior called, when joe arpaio called, when he calls donald trump is tough on the border. i don't want to be tough but we are going to be fair. we are going have borders again. people are going to come into the country.
they have to come and legally. [applause] mitt romney got up and made a speech the other day. it's ok. i understand. he's a very nice man. but i understand. it's hard. when you go through this and get to the final gate and you don't get over it it is a hard thing. he did make some statements. i brought some things up because he said water company is gone. it is? i have successful companies. i filed with the federal pages.ns 100 very impressed. i built a great company. i have low debt. like this.ts this is owned 100% by me with no debts. -- that is a 100%
by me with no debt. i have trump international where you were last week. 100% by me no debt. partners with related jobs on the beach, gill and michael on the beach. massive buildings. no one ever talks about this stuff. one of the most successful projects ever built in real estate. the bank of america building, a big chunk of in san francisco. many things. they talked about the water company.
we have trump steaks. he said the state company. we have trump steaks. i the way. if you want to take one, we will charge you $50 a stay? -- a steak. trump magazine is out? i read 12 days ago. this is called the jewel of palm beach. they goes to all of my clubs. it is the magazine that is great. the airline, i sold the airline. i actually made a great deal. complicated and in terrible times. the economy was horrible. i made a phenomenal deal.
so i'm hearing about all of these things. trump university, we are holding it. when i win the lawsuit, they did and add the other day, two or , it iseople were staying so terrible. the reason i didn't settle, all of these people, we sent their letters out. they report cards were all excellent. we love it. you can't settle cases when the person suing you has given you letters and tape saying how great it is. it was a nice thing. we are putting it on hold. if i become president my family will started up and we have a lot of great people who want to get back into trump university. it's going to do well and continue to do well but we have a lawsuit where they are trying to get one of these class-action
lawyer guys and it is ridiculous . we will win that lawsuit. i just want to explain. the notice a should do this print i don't settle losses pride very rare. once you settle lawsuits everybody sues you. lawsuits,ettle sometimes it is cheaper to settle but once you settle, i had a friend who was sued very rarely and everybody else in the same business was sued all the time. he said i never settle. the lawyers learn they don't see you. when i watch these banks settling lawsuits all the time, they settle lawsuits with governments and other people getting billions and billions of dollars, i don't do it. when i solve the different things, and the winery, does he mention trump vodka? the largest winery in the east coast. you have to check the records.
you can see if there is any debt. it was john close view. he died. he built one of the great vineyards of all time. there is nothing like it. close to 2000 acres in charlottesville, virginia next to the thomas jefferson memorial. we are proud of it. they make as good wine as you can get in the world. the
press is extremely honest. they can take a bottle home. the members have plenty. we have one of the greatest. we have the largest winery on the east coast. to rest.to put that have the magazine, you have the airline, you have the stakes. trump university, we are going to started up. does that make sense?
ok. thank paul o'neill. that is a big deal. i had such respect when he was again key. he just didn't make mistakes. now.uld use him right i love that kind of a guy. [applause] i think what this shows is advertising is not as important. it isn't as important as competence. there has never been more money spent on hitting somebody than was spent on me. between that and people saying things. lindsey graham goes he is a nasty person. he is wrong on the military. i have been doing this for 15 years. we have been fighting a war for 15 years with this type of thinking. if your going to fight a war when the war and let's get back to fighting our country -- building our country.
he has been so nasty. i watch him and say does he hate donald trump? i watch him and say if you think about it every single person that has attacked me has gone down. i don't want to mention names. they are out. you can take a look at virtually every single person. we started with 17. we are down to 4. of the four they are pretty much all gone. they didn't do so well tonight. i'm not going to say anybody didn't do well. they didn't do well. only one person did well to night, donald trump. i will tell you. [applause] it was actually amazing. i was impressed. even megyn kelly said donald trump did well tonight. thank you. thank you. that was an unusual -- i was shocked. but that was very nice. he was very nice. thank you.
i have been waiting five years, charles. but, it is true. every single -- i have had such hostility like with lindsey graham. he attacked me. we took them down to zero. he leaves in disgrace. he goes to his own state. they do a poll in south carolina. he endorses somebody else and the poll has me at 47, him at 2 and he is a sitting senator. i don't like to bring it up but i tell you it is in now. just relax, go home. everyone knows you take this big defeat and the problem is the press never calls them out. they go to this horrible defeat and then they start immediately on the attack. it is like he never ran and made a full of himself. i call people out. it is true they have attacked me viciously. every single one who has attacked me is gone. i am very proud of that.
that is always half for our country. isis should not be beating us. we don't win any more we don't win with our military. we don't win with anything. position where a i says is dictating terms. -- lyin' tted cruz ed. he goes home and put the bible down and then he lies. he will say i'm the only one that be donald trump. i beat him. but he doesn't say the one 4 and i've one 12-13. he forgets the other part. -- i waselicals watching carl he said how great i did with the evangelicals. i'm a good christian.
they are chipping away at christianity. we are not going to let that happen anymore, folks. a lot of times i will say it at the rallies, we are going to say merry christmas again. we are going to start saying it again. they are chipping away at christianity and we can't do it. with the evangelicals, they get it. they get me. i will be the best thing that ever happened to them. i mean that 100%. they don't like the way ted talks and they do like the way that he truly does lie. he lies badly. was -- little marko help me a lot. -- in one of the debates he screamed across me. never out of center. i always like an odd number. with an even number i hated it because we had four people so
i'm not in the center. we should always keep it odd numbers. marco helped me a lot because he called ted cruz a liar. he said he is a liar. i know politicians better than anybody. they are liars. more and portly they will never get you to the promised land. they will not do it. they are controlled by special interest in the people that put up all this money for them to run. do you know how much money was spent in the last week on me? you know how many times they were asking despite the fact that they are not supposed to be ,alking to their super pac's how many times do you think marco rubio and ted cruz and all of them were calling their super pac's? it is called life. we talk to their super pac's. they are not supposed to but that is the way life for us. andre going to do something
clean the slate. i think we are going to do well in florida. it is my second home. i love florida. a special place. i think we're going to do well. now that i have paul o'neill's endorsement i know i'm going to win. i love ohio. i have so many friends. it is an amazing place. we are one have a lot of fun. we are one of the hillary clinton and beat her badly. we are going to beat her badly. things --e of the then we will take some questions, one of the things i add that is very different. we talk about the five and sometimes 6, the five states you have to get. ohio, pennsylvania, florida. is toughercans, it for a republican win the presidency. i have things others can't do.
i have a chance of new york. hirete new york, i pull than anybody ever. they are in trouble up there. they know i would have done things and they wouldn't be in trouble if they had taken my advice. i will get michigan. we are going to bring the car industry back. we are pointed bring the car industry back into michigan. i'm going to win michigan. it is not even the question. even a question. michigan is not something they even talk about. i will win new jersey, ohio. florida. i will win virginia. i have great properties in virginia. winery talked about the in virginia. i have 600 acres on the potomac river. one of the great pieces of property in the world. very successful place.
a lot of employees in virginia. it seems when i have something when i am in virginia, i have a -- howemployees, i have good was that? he won the tournament's, the world championship, it means you love this state. it means you have a lot of employees. you pay the employees. things. care of so many you just do well. i'm want to do great there. i want to do great in ohio. i'm going to be working hard between the two. i have one of the greatest buildings in the world in chicago. rated the number one hotel in north america. i'm very proud of it. it is a great building.
maybe we will do it in chicago. let's see what the press has to ask and then we will go home and go celebrate a lot of victories. go ahead. cbs. [inaudible question] donald trump: you have to win. i know how to win. these people will tell you. have i won many championships? stand up. it stand out. have i won many club championships? does trump know how to close? winning is winning. it is not easy to club championships. i like to close things out. until the last person is gone, we started with a field of 17. now we are down to 4. i wanted to close things out.
i have not even focused on hillary yeah. in many cases. i have all night. hillary is easy to be preachy is a flawed candidate. it is going to be a very, very easy target. if she is allowed to run. there is a row question as to whether or not she is going to be allowed to run. if the government is going to do its job properly she will not be allowed to run. [applause] [in honorable question] inaudible question] rubio, hemp: marco
became hostile a few weeks ago. it didn't work. hostility works for some people. it doesn't work for everyone. [laughter] he became very hostile. it doesn't work for him. he was better had he kept the original pitter patter going. but this did not work. [inaudible question] donald trump: part of the beauty, i have more money than all of them put together times 20. i'm a businessman. why should i spend the money? other people have spent $160 million. you have the numbers. in new hampshire i spent a million and a half dollars. someone else spent $48 million. what do be nice and we had a country that works that way?
so, the cnn poll came out and i was 41. i was 49. second is 15 and 15. you know, i have spent less money than anybody else. the phony wall street journal poll came out. if you are member the poll from south carolina. it was the phony as most disgusting poll i've ever seen. i don't believe that paul. i don't know who is making of that poll. they should not pay that bill. i never pay bills when somebody does a bad job. they did such a bad job during the south carolina run. they had me practically dying in south carolina. they did that with a viciousness and vindictiveness. it looks like i was in trouble. then i won in a landslide. the following day they came out with a national poll that was ridiculous. they cannot with another one. nbc jumped on it.
what is wrong with them? that's not right. cnn came out with a pull. 49, a couple of days ago. i am still in first place. i believe there poll is wrong. boy did they turn out to be wrong in south carolina. [inaudible question] donald trump: i was concerned with that until i saw it. i think it is better than any ad i have taken for myself. do you know why? i mean it. i heard about the ad. could beoked at it, i
more presidential than anybody. i can be more presidential if i want to be. people coming at me with 16 different angles, you don't want to be so presidential . you have to beat them back. i would say more presidential that anybody other than the lincolnblink and -- abe . i saw that ad. people are sick and tired of being politically correct. i think that is good for me. [applause] was kidding and joking. i have a big audience. in other cases i was showing anger and toughness that we need in our country. i watch that and said that ad shows a certain degree of anger and it shows a certain degree like we are not going to take it anymore.
very very stupid babies. bad ad fornk it is a me. if i had my choice of saying i could have it down or let it run, let it run. [applause] [inaudible question] donald trump: you are so politically correct. look at you. i know. you have never heard a little off language or you are so perfect. aren't you just a perfect young man? give me a break. it is stuff like that that people in this country are tired of. it is stuff like that. [cheers and applause] [inaudible question]
trump: i have heard $39 million has been spent. i am very surprised. that is not 50% with two people. that is 50% with 4 people. that is shocking. a big difference. if your hillary running against , you get a 50-52 -- i am running against three very competent people and i'm getting 50%. in michigan i'm close to 40% against a big group of people. i will say this. i am a little bit surprised -- i was at the rail -- i was asking adam scott hit that last great shot. i was watching the news. and every single advertisement was about me.
it was during my tournament. i go from tournament to horrible man. one of the reasons i brought the wine out and the water out and and iakeout -- steak out, told you about trump university, one of the reasons is because of that. they hit me with this trump university. we're going to win the case. i could settle the case so easily. it would be easier for me to settle it. is, you have to do what is right. if you live by principal, i am a very highly principled person. if you live by principles you will do well. but to finish, i must tell you i was surprised when i saw the viciousness of the ads, and
viciousness of mitt romney. he was vicious. i wish to use that same energy against obama. he would have one. -- won. [applause] if you use the same energy against obama he would have won. >> given your statement about hillary clinton do you agree you need to get mainstream american public and colleges -- s behind you. donald trump: let's come together folks. let's come together. not 100% but largely i would say yes. some people you are just not going to get along with. largely i would like to do that. believe it or not i am a unifier. you look at the things i've built. i am a unifier. i have great relations.
. get along with you campaign carl. i get along with people. i say this. i think it is time to unify. we have something special in the republican party. the people in the party called them the elites or whatever, those are the people that don't respect a yet. people millions of , largely and voting for me. you know this. it is a record. it has never happened before. in 100 years what is happening now has never happened before. the people of the party whether you call the establishment or , whether you call them the establishment or not, they should embrace it.
the democrats would love to have what is happening. i have france on the other side. boy would be like that to happen. they are down 35%. there is no spirit there. we are way up with millions of people. , embrace it. we will win the election easily. >> mitt romney, lindsey graham have been attacking you viciously. how can you win them back? donald trump: i don't think you have to when everybody. >> are you changing the republican party? conservativesure it is not in their interests? donald trump: i'm not changing the republican party i am a conservative. nobody is more conservative than me on energy independence. nobody is more conservative than me on the military.
nobody's more conservative than me and taking care of our veterans who were being absolutely maligned. nobody is more conservative than me on health care where we are going to repeal and replace on health care. and on, core where we are getting rid of it. and the penny deals. we all $19 trillion. we're going to pay off debt. we have to start bringing it down to a level that is sustainable because we are going in the wrong direction. certainly nobody is more conservative than me on the border. the one thing i think people can frees that on trade i am a trader. i am also a smart trader. we cannot let china -- i like china. they are wonderful but their leaders are too smart for our leaders. i do great with china. the bank of america i have because of china.
nobody is more, conservative on trade. the problem i have is you have people that are in the national review, they are eggheads. no common sense whatsoever. when chinaree trade charges tax to get our products and a let our product in any way and yet they take their product and they send it to us like nothing. we have a trade deficit with china of $500 billion a year. we have a trade deficit with japan of over $100 billion a year. --have a trade jeff this it deficit of mexico. that is why mexico is going to pay for the wall. 100%. these guys, that i'm against and say you are not going to get mexico to pay for the wall. of course i am. we have a trade deficit of mexico with 58 million dollars
-- $58 billion year. you tell me i can't make that deal? that is an easy deal. the only thing, i love the question. the living i could say, some conservative, a trade. i want free trade. free trade, you have to have smart people on both sides and we don't have smart people on our side. i want fair trade. it has to be fair trade or fair and balanced trade. >> i want ask you about trade. that's one of the planks of your campaign, the idea of fair trade. the u.s. isut how getting killed by china. there is intervention for cheaper goods for example.
donald trump: i know what you're going to say very nobody is listening to you, jeremy. let me just explain. the problem we have with trade, jeremy, jeremy. we have people on the other side that are grandmasters at monetary manipulation. they are manipulating currency to such an extent that our companies cannot compete with other nations. take a look at how many jobs china has taken from us. china is the big abuser. china has taken millions of jobs, thousands of factories. it is the greatest theft in the history of the world. they have taken out so much money. i love china. it is great.
our leaders would do the same thing in reverse but they don't. we cannot continue. i won michigan and i went up there. you take a look at an example in chicago. ford is building a two point $5 billion factory in mexico. we can't continue to do it. carrier announced they are going to close. how does that help us? [inaudible question] donald trump: can i tell you what's going to happen? when china thinks you mean it
they are going to stop manipulating their currency. you will even have to do anything. you might even have free trade. mean that,thinks he when japan thinks you mean it, we sell practically nothing to japan. the have cars coming in by the millions. ,hen japan things we need it and they stop playing around caterpillar is being hurt very badly not because their machines are about caterpillar makes it better machine. manipulator and we can't have that. we are not supposed to do it. they are dealing with babies. we are dealing with babies. their grand master players and we have people that shouldn't be
negotiating for us. one more question. she never asks it i a decent question. an audible question --[inaudible question] donald trump: lindsey graham is probably a nice guy. i was tough on him because he is tough on me. i could probably get along with lindsey graham. along withbably get mitt romney. i understand how he feels. he worked really hard. he should have worked harder. he didn't get there. i understand it. i could get along with mitt romney. i backed him, i helped him.
i don't know mitt romney. i could probably get along well lindsey graham pretty goes on television and he is nasty. i can get along with people. ishave something going that very good. we should grab each other and unify the party. thank you very much everybody. thank you. i appreciate it. thank you very much.
