tv   Anderson Cooper 360  CNN  February 5, 2016 5:00pm-6:01pm PST

5:00 pm
hosted by chris cuomo and dan marino, otherwise known as twins separated by birth. that's tomorrow afternoon at 2:00 eastern. set your dvr. you can record outfront and watch the show any time. we'll be back for a special edition of "outfront after the republican national debate. ac 360 starts now. >> new polling and late developments for the blizzard of candidates now blanketing new hampshire. there's the candidates and where they were today. the dotted line is for trump who canceled his appearance today in london derry. he's taking heat from rivals he left behind. jeb bush tweeting, my 90-year-old mother made it out to campaign. that's 5-year-old destiny on the left. and the former first lady doing pretty well at the diner in derry, new hampshire. they also sat down with cnn's jamie gangell.
5:01 pm
she talked about why he isn't doing better in the polls and taking a moment to weigh in on donald trump. first, though, donald trump, the final push to the nation's first primary. jim costa joins us from south carolina from florence. you're at the trump event. what were his main points? was he on the attack against specific candidates, or what? >> really more on president obama tonight. a lot of foreign policy in this speech. donald trump slamming theu ran nuclear deal. he also vowed to go after isis. and at one point he talked about a subject that's pretty popular on the campaign trail, and that is radical islam. and it was during that portion of his speech that donald trump went after president obama and mentioned the president's trip to a mosque in baltimore earlier this week. take a listen. >> there's an anger out there. when you look at paris and you have these thugs walk in and kill 130 people with many, many people in hospitals that are so gravely injured, many more will
5:02 pm
die. when you look at california, a few weeks ago, with the radicalized couple, they say she radicalized him. who cares. where do these people come from? where do they come from? where do they come from? and then president obama yesterday goes to a mosque and he apologizes. i mean, what's going on? we have to -- right? no, he goes there and he apologizes. >> we should point out president obama did not apologize at that mosque. it was a speech about religious tolerance. >> did he talk at all about not being in new hampshire because he got some criticism for it. >> not really. he glossed over that subject. he's focused on new hampshire right now which was an interesting thing to say when he missed his only event in new hampshire because of the weather.
5:03 pm
we should point out if folks don't know, donald trump made the decision to go back to new york city last night to sleep at home instead of staying in new hampshire overnight. then his plane got stuck at the airport. he couldn't get out of laguardia to go out there on the campaign trail. he was forced to spend his only event of the day in south carolina. but anderson, donald trump just does not like to spend the night overnight in hotel rooms out on the campaign trail. and this was one of those days where it really came back -- that decision came back to haunt him. the trump campaign is saying that donald trump will be out on the campaign trail in new hampshire for the next four days starting tomorrow. all the way to the new hampshire primary, and donald trump did try to make up for his absence in new hampshire earlier today. he recorded a facebook video, posted on his facebook page. he was really hailing the official slogan of new hampshire, live free or die. he said congratulations to new hampshire. they did a wonderful job picking out that slogan. >> jim acosta, thank you.
5:04 pm
fresh numbers on how well the candidates are doing in new hampshire. new data from the ongoing cnn/wmur tracking poll. tm foreman joins us with more on that. let's talk about this poll. trump still has a solid lead among the gop candidates, right? >> we'll see if this no-show hurts him. if you look at our latest data tracking poll, he's still up here at 28%. iowa does not seem to have hurt him. rubio is now solidly in second at 17%. iowa does seem to have helped him. look at this. ted cruz and john kasich tied down here at 13%. since yesterday, trump and cruz have both moved down just a tiny bit and kasich has moved up a tiny bit. our sampling error here is close to 6%. but want you to keep an eye on kasich. the reason to keep an eye on him, he has the lowest negative rating of all of those candidates. he may have the most room to maneuver. and keep this in mind, too. out of all the republicans up there in new hampshire, 30% say
5:05 pm
they are still decidig whom they're going to vote for. and 26% merely say they're leaning toward someone. only 45% are definitely decided. so that leaves a lot of wiggling room for all of these candidates to do something in the next couple of days. >> a lot of minds can change between now and the primary. what about the democrats? >> it's really a whopping number here. the democrats, 16% say they're still deciding. 20% leaning, but many, many more than the republicans, 64% say they are committed to their candidate. that's really good news for bernie sanders and his followers because bernie sanders is still sitting on a 30-point lead here. he's hoilding steady at 61%. hillary clinton has come up 1%. we have a 5.5% margin of error here. 1% up. even if you took that margin of error and moved it in her favor both ways, she's still way behind in the granite state.
5:06 pm
and not much room to make it up. >> tom, thanks. let's head north to derry, new hampshire, and john king. also in manchester, chief political analyst gloria borger and david chalian. how much did it hurt trump not to be in new hampshire? the clock is ticking. >> i think it doesn't help him at all. i was at an event talking to some people who were choosing between trump and cruz. and the fact that trump isn't here today doesn't really sit well. people here take their politics seriously. they enjoy it, and they want you to take it as seriously as they do. and deciding to fly home to new york rather than just stick around one more night in new hampshire, knowing that snow is coming, leaves some voters here sort of scratching their heads, particularly when you have so many undecideds. this doesn't help. >> you've been traveling around the state. what's the sense about how these
5:07 pm
different lanes are shaping up heading into the weekend? >> well, anderson, i'll tell you this. donald trump called it a big snowstorm. in new hampshire they call this february. it happens quite a bit. all the other candidates got about their business. a lot of people were talking about, why didn't he come? why didn't he make it? it's not that far from new york. marco rubio has been waiting patiently for an hour after the event. i talked to 20, 25 people. five of them told me they were trump supporters last week who are rubio supporters tonight. that's not scientific. it's just an anecdotal thing. three others told me they were torn between trump and rubio and wanted to come to this event. there's a lot of fluidity here. the rubio campaign believes it has momentum. enough momentum to win? they tend to get more standoffish about that. they believe they continue to grow which raises the stakes dramatically, not only for marco rubio but donald trump and for the bush/kasich and christie crowd who are trying to stop marco rubio.
5:08 pm
tomorrow's debate will change the dynamic here. >> the trump/cruz feud, we're seeing them ratchet things up. seems they have more or less bet everything on new hampshire. >> no doubt about it. i was out on the campaign trail with governor christie and governor bush. part of their closing argument is that marco rubio just is too inexperienced and hasn't run anything. has no proven record of running anything. that was the focus of their closing message. they know that this is sort of do or die for them. they've got to show something here. this is where that battle for that establishment lane has long been set to take place. with marco rubio believing he's got some momentum now. still getting endorse mtdments bounce in the polls. that spell trouble for the kasichs, bushes and rubios. >> on the democratic side, hillary clinton down by 2-1
5:09 pm
margins. the cnn/wmur tracking poll does that again. it helps lower expectations which is something the clinton campaign has been trying to do. if she closes the gap, as frankly she did against barack obama in 2008, the campaign could try to spin that as momentum. >> sure. oh, okay. if we lose by anything less than, say, 20 points, that's actually a win, i guess is the way you can spin it. they can't lower expectations any more than the polls have really for hillary clinton. but the thing to remember here is that this state is not exactly inhospitable to her. this is a state she came back and won in 2008. it was by a small 2 to 3-point margin, but she did win it. the problem for her is and i was at a sanders rally today. the problem for her is the passion gap right now here in new hampshire. and the passion seems to be with
5:10 pm
bernie sanders. and she's working hard. she's doing everything she needs to do. she's a much better candidate than she was when she started this campaign. but bernie sanders just has that appeal here that she can't quite match. >> would it benefit sanders at some point to say i've got this huge lead in new hampshire. i have to go to south carolina and nevada where i face some tough obstacles from clinton? >> you could think that argument, but then you have to think about the state of new hampshire and the state of the sanders campaign. people here don't like to be taken for granted. if he left now, he may pay a price. our poll has a 30-point lead. the nbc/marist poll has a 20-point lead. and another poll has sanders up by only 9 points. there's fluctuation in the polls. if your bernie sanders, you have to protect this. this is your best state, strongest state. you need to protect it and win
5:11 pm
it. when it comes to south carolina where he'll have to make relationships with latinos and if he can win here he shows hillary clinton may be weak, maybe he gets people to reconsider and take another look at him. the biggest priority for the bernie sanders campaign is to run it up here as big as they can. >> certainly they went after each other pretty hard at the debate last night. if that doesn't help her cut into his lead in new hampshire, what would? >> yeah, it's not clear other than her ground game here, although the sanders operation here is pretty robust. she clearly believes that she had to show her supporters that she knows the line of attack that is coming her way and that she's not going to take it lying down. she wanted to demonstrate last night that she's going to fight for every vote and push back on this notion that she is somehow completely tied to wall street and that somehow she makes policy decisions baseod that. she pushed back hard on that.
5:12 pm
yes, she's hoping that's dense sanders at least allows her to dig into his lead. i also think the clinton campaign is looking beyond to the more demgraphically lly advantageous. >> john king is working on a special edition of "inside politics" live from new hampshire. you can catch it sunday morning at 8:00 a.m. eastern time. the gloves are coming off. more with my conversation with donald trump and his claim that he'll project a very different tone than we've seen so far. ♪ soft, calm music "hi, you've reached emma. i'm out of the office right now but will get back to you just as soon as i possibly can. your call is important to me." join princess cruises for exclusive

5:16 pm
two days after their cnn town hall and the night after their debate, bernie sanders and hillary clinton are sharing a stage again tonight. they are each speaking at a democratic party dinner event after a day of doling out kind words and political punches. more from jeff zeleny. >> i am not going to stop fighting for new hampshire. >> reporter: in their bitter primary fight, hillary clinton extended a hand to bernie sanders. >> i will call senator sanders the first call i will make. >> reporter: but it sounded like more of a consolation prize than an olive branch. >> i look forward to working with him as a partner in the senate. >> reporter: four days before
5:17 pm
the new hampshire primary, clinton is looking beyond sanders' commanding lead and playing the long card of inevitablity. >> i'm so fortunate as to get this nomination so we can turn our attention to what we really need to do. make sure we don't get a republican back in the white house. >> reporter: but sanders is also playing the long game. armed with a wave of support he never imagined. putting up a fight that's shaking the democratic party. >> this campaign is trying to do is to ask the american people to think big and not small. >> reporter: one thing the campaign is getting is heated. face-to-face for the first time since the contest became a two-person race, the rancor was clear on last night's debate stage. >> time and time again, by innuendo, by insinuation, there is this attack that he is putting forth. and i really don't think these kinds of attacks by insinuation are worthy of you.
5:18 pm
>> reporter: she's talking about his charge that she's beholden to wall street. >> enough is enough. if you've got something to say, say it directly. but you will not find that i ever changed a view or a vote because of any donation that i ever received. i think it's time to end the very artful smear that you and your campaign have been carrying out in recent weeks. >> being part of the establishment is in the last quarter having a superpac that raised $15 million for wall street. >> reporter: sanders is trying to make money and judgment defining issues in the race. >> experience is not the only point. judgment is. and once again, back in 2002, when we both looked at the same evidence about the wisdom of the war in iraq, one of us voted the right way, and one of us didn't. >> a vote in 2002 is not a plan to defeat isis.
5:19 pm
we have to look at the threats that we face right now. and we have to be prepared to take them on and defeat them. >> reporter: the acrimony continues but sanders is taking a brief detour for his turn on "saturday night live" where his doppelganger larry david is hosting. >> i don't have a superpac. i don't even have a backpack. >> reporter: he played along with the resemblance with anderson cooper. >> do you do a larry david imitation? >> anderson, i know you've been in journalism a long time. >> are you doing your larry david right now? >> this is stupid. i am larry david. and you didn't get it. >> jeff zeleny joins us. sanders' "snl" appearance, he'll bolster standing among young voters. it's got to be worrying to clinton, although she did "snl" earlier. >> they are worried about young voters. listen to this number. in iowa, senator sanders beat her among voters under 30 by 70
5:20 pm
percentage points. it's only one state so it's hard too draw too much information. secretary clinton had an appeal. i know you're with senator sanders now but listen to me. hear me out. i'll fight for you later. that's one of the biggest things they have to improve on in new hampshire as this campaign rolls along. >> jeff zeleny, thanks. joining us is michael nutter, former democratic mayor of philadelphia. clinton supporter. and political commentator and bernie sanders supporter bill press. you say bernie played the victim card last night. how so? >> with this whole idea that raising the question about the speaking fees that she took from goldman sachs, $675,000. and the amount of money she's received from banks and hedge funds, according to "the washington post." $21.4 million through december 2015. the idea that raising that issue is a smear campaign?
5:21 pm
i would say, oh, please, come on. this is a campaign. it's a legitimate issue and she should just explain the issue. to go into this -- how dare you raise that issue. how dare you suggest, you know, that i would be oathen to these financial institutions because they gave me so much money. this is politics. she knows better than that. i think she is great when she talk about the issues. when she talks about policy. when she talks about her vision for america. there's nobody better. when she whines, i think it turns people off. >> michael, what about that? what's wrong with calling into question her paid speaking engagements from goalsman sacks. is that a spear campaign? >> it's exactly how secretary clinton put it. senator sanders wants to go right up to the line without getting chalk on his shoe. he's actually stepped over it a couple of times. if you really have something to say, really trying to
5:22 pm
communicate something, then say it outright as opposed to trying to get close to the line and just leaving it hanging out there. but senator sanders likes to talk about the secretary's vote back in 2002. so apparently he enjoys history. let's talk about 2006 when senator sanders was helping to raise money for the democratic senate committee and it received that year $685,000 from goldman sachs, money from citigroup, jpmorgan and morgan stanley. the senator is actually an active part of the establishment. he's an active fund-raiser. he's benefited from the party. and if he really wants to be the outsider, why is he running as a democrat? >> mayor, do you really believe -- do you really believe hillary clinton when she says she wasn't sure if she was going to run? she wasn't really thinking about running for president when she decided to take $675,000 for three speeches from goaldman
5:23 pm
sachs? >> whatever the number is. the marketplace pays whatever it is. i don't count other people's money. i've known secretary clinton for over 20 years, and during those years, i actively asked her and people around her, is she running for president and the absolute truth of the matter is they weren't sure. and she had not made a decision. i've had that kind of conversation with her a number of years ago. so that's that. she's a private citizen. the amount of money is that. if senator sanders wants to actually make a charge about her ability to be independent, she asked him and stated, i've never changed my view or my vote. senator sanders had no response whatsoever. >> bill, do you believe -- >> it never happened. >> bill, do you believe she changed a vote or was influenced by that money? >> let me just say, okay, again, just answer the questions, secretary. >> what's the question?
5:24 pm
>> wait a minute. the -- >> what's the question? >> wait a minute, michael. i did not -- >> what's the question? >> i would like to finish my point, if i may. the question is you took all this money. does that mean these people are going to have access? can we really trust you to crack down on wall street when you took all this money? just ask the question but don't attack bernie sanders because he's running as a democrat. we ought to be grateful he's running as a democrat. he's running an -- >> please. i would like to finish my point. >> bill, do you believe she was influenced by that money? >> well, i would point out three things. first of all, everybody knew she was thinking about running for president. there was a pac called ready for hillary that was out there. it's no secret. one word, george stephanopoulos said the other morning. access. that's the way politics works. the people who gave her all that money are going to get their phone calls answered. they'll get attention. number two, look at glass/steagall. that's an outrageous law that
5:25 pm
bill clinton signed. it let the banks do what happened to drive us into this fiscal disaster in 2008. bernie sanders says we ought to bring it back. hillary clinton is against it. the financial institution is against it. and thirdly, in elizabeth warren's book, i wish i could tell you the exact bill, elizabeth warren talks about a bill where hillary clinton voted the wrong way because, according to elizabeth warren, she was getting money from the big banks on wall street. it's a legitimate question. answer the question. >> bill press, mayor nutter, good to have you pop. before the snowstorm hit in new hampshire, i interviewed donald trump in a restaurant full of voters. coming up,s in answer to this question -- you said in the past that as president you'd president different than -- >> i think i would. >> if you are talking about your tone, how would it be different?

5:30 pm
28%. a couple points down from january. the poll has a pretty big margin of error. nearly one-third of republican voters are still undecided tonight. i interviewed donald trump yesterday at a restaurant in manchester, new hampshire, where he also took questions from some undecided voters. you said in the past that as president, you would president different than -- >> i think i would. >> talking about tone, your tone, how would it be different. that's what some of your -- they are worried about, you know, are you going to be tweeting in the middle of the night as president, criticizing people? >> here's what we have to understand. so i started out with 17 people total. and then if you add a few democrats, a couple of them i won't even count. over 20 people. they were all -- you have to move fast. twitter is a wonderful thing. you know it as well as anybody. you do very well with twitter, too. the other day i put out a message on cnn, breaking news. i put out the tweet, a good
5:31 pm
tweet, positive tweet and within two minutes i see breaking news over cnn. >> it's why you are -- >> it's one of those things. >> incredible. >> between twitter and facebook over 12 million people. it's impressive. but presidentially, it would be different. i will say this. we need to keep a tough tone. a lot of people get elected and go to washington and fold. they go to washington because we're going to get rifd obamacare, we're going to do this -- >> as president you're going to be more presidential? >> i went to the best school. i have a uncle who was a president at m.i.t. i'm like a smart person. i can be -- anderson, i can be however i want. i have all of the social elite using my ballroom. you've been there. >> for charity events. just for the record. i was speaking for free, by the way, also. >> but anderson, all of the big
5:32 pm
events, the red cross, all of them. i have the elite of society come. oh, donald, how are you? they love me. i'm very different. i talk to them. how are you? how are you? then i leave. much different thing. i can be any way i want. as president, i will be different. when i have 17 people coming at me from 15 different angles you have to go pretty hard. >> i want you to meet andre from syria. moved here in 1988. he's been a police officer for 17 years. he's leaning in your favor. also likes rubio, though. >> you are making a big mistake. >> mr. trump, so the war in syria is obviously horrible and a lot of christian syrians are trying to escape. what are your feelings on this, and will you work faster to try to, you know, help these christians leave that war? >> are you christian? >> i am. >> so one of the horrible things that i've heard very strongly, if you are a christian from -- and this was before the migration and before all of this.
5:33 pm
it was always very tough. before the migration, if you were a christian from syria, it was virtually impossible to duet into the united states. if you were a muslum from syria, it was extremely easy. one of the easiest places to come into the united states and become a citizen. hard to believe. you'd think it would be the other way around because of all the problems the christians are having over there. i would work very hard to get the problem solved, and i disagree with so many. i listen to lindsey graham talk. no wonder we've been in wars in the last 20 years in the middle east. you have to solve the problem. we have to take care of the christians. their heads are being kutd off. how long have you been over here? >> 28 years. >> so you really -- all all fairness, you saw a much different syria. so you have images probably that are a little bit different. we will solve the world's problems but with -- >> would you allow syrian refugees who are christians in? >> right now we're having mostly muslims come in. right now what i feel, and in
5:34 pm
terms of the migration, i don't want anyone coming in. i want to build safe zones in syria. i want the gulf states to pay for it because the gulf states have unlimited money. before the oil prices went down, saudi arabia was making a billion dollars a day, and we protect saudi arabia. and we protect japan and we protect germany and we protect south korea from the maniac who is right next door. it's unbelievable. we protect everybody. we get peanuts for it. it's got to be different. we're losing a tremendous amount of money on a yearly basis. much more than we can afford to lose. you are sitting on a bubble. it's going to be a very ugly thing if this happens. if we're going to protect germany, japan, you know if japan gets attacked, we have to protect them. i like japan. i do. i like japan. but all the agreements are bad. if japan gets attacked, we have to protect them. >> you don't think we should? >> no, no, if we get attacked, japan doesn't have to do
5:35 pm
anything. what kind of people make these deals. if we get attacked, japan can say, gee, whiz, they can send their camera crews and have it on television. if japan gets attacked we have to go into world war iii or whatever it ends up being. our deals are no good. we're protecting germany. you have a mercedes-benz? >> no. i'd like one. >> they are an economic behemoth. south korea. i buy thousands of television sets a year for different jobs. they all come out of south korea. lg, samsong, sony which lost its way in japan. i buy thousands and thousands of television sets. we don't make television sets anymore. now every time the guy in north korea, the wild man, every time he raises his voice or starts talking nuclear we start sending -- we get nothing for this. we get practically nothing. if we have 28 right now,
5:36 pm
28,000ed 28,000 ed soldiers on the line between north korea and south korea. south korea san economic -- >> you aren't saying take those soldiers out. >> we need to be reimbursed. one reason our military has the biggest budget in the world times ten is not because we have a strong military. it's because we're protecting everybody. >> more of our conversation ahead, including why donald trump made donations to other plig politicians, including hillary clinton, before he became a politician himself. >> you were buying access? >> i was buying friends. >> you were buying friends? it's a new fiber supplement that helps support regularity and includes b vitamins to help convert food to energy. mmmmm, these are good! nice work, phillips! the tasty side of fiber, from phillips'.

5:40 pm
back now with more of my interview with donald trump. took place yesterday before the snowstorm hit new hampshire. mr. trump got out of town before the weather hit. he's in south carolina. the new hampshire primary just four days away and the latest tracking poll showing one-third of republican voters still undecided. mr. trump took questions yesterday. i want you to meet ter -- susan therrien from manchester. she says she's undecided. >> hi, mr. trump.
5:41 pm
my question is, how much of an impact will your christian faith have upon your decision-making process as president, and i ask that because my husband and i as born-again christians, everything we do is led by the word of god and our faith in jesus christ and want to know that is this going to be an important part of your, you know, administration, as it should be as your life? >> that's a great question. look. people were a little surprised, but i have -- nationwide, i'm leading everybody with evangelicals. you've seen that. in iowa i did great with evangelicals. >> cruz did better. >> he did, in iowa but nationwide i'm leading everybody substantially. a lot of ministers and pastors are supporting me. not because i'm the perfect person in all fairness but because they think i'll be the best leader, best for the economy. they're very pragmatic. they want something great for the country. it's very important to me. christianity is very important to me.
5:42 pm
by the way, they are chopping and chopping and chopping away at christianity. they have to become stronger. and it all started with lyndon johnson. if you lose your tax status and everything else. they are petrified of that because they don't want to take political positions. if i said some of the things i said about muslims that i -- if i said that about christians, i wouldn't have had the same uproar. religion plays anm portent role in my heart. >> why do you think ted cruz was able to get evangelicals with the entrance polls in iowa, you lost to cruz by 12 points among evangelicals? >> he had a lot of support from the ministers. i have dr. jerry falwell. he is an amazing -- junior. jerry falwell jr. from liberty university. i have so many. pastor jeffers. it wasn't a big difference but i was right there. nationwide, i'm beating

everybody by a lot. religion and christianity plays a very big role. >> i want you to meet ryan. he's between jobs. he was supporting bernie sanders. now he's undecided. as someone who used to work in health care and health insurance i saw first hand how expensive the premiums are and how expensive drugs are. i'm concerned about this for my parents, my grandparents and myself ultimately later. so i just was curious what you thought some steps a trump administration -- some specifics. >> the drug companies, right, and the insurance companies are taking care of our politicians. they're not going to take care of me. i'm not taking any -- i could have -- bush raised $125 million. he wasted the money. i'd rather have him give it to the wounded warriors or vets or anybody. might as well throw it out the
5:44 pm
window the way he wasted money. hillary raised 70, $80, million. those people that put up that money, all of those people, they have control over those people. if i knock out the insurance companies with the lines, and if i make the -- if i do what i told you about the drugs, the cost of the drugs. with me, the drugs will come way down in price. i don't mean a little bit. i mean way down in price because they are making a fortune. why are they making a fortune? check out johnson & johnson. woody johnson is running the campaign of somebody. do you know who he h's running e campaign of? jeb bush. it's woody johnson of johnson & johnson. a nice guy, a friend of mine. do you think that jeb bush is going to hurt johnson & johnson? so the way the system works, folks, it's rigged against you. it's rigged against you. i was part of the system. i was total establishment. the day i announced i became
5:45 pm
unestablishment. i gave $350,000 to the republican governors association. i gave money to everybody. i get along with everybody. by the way, democrats, republicans, which is my obligation to do. but i understand the system better than anybody. the drug companies pay tremendous amounts of money to all of the people you see on stage except me. the insurance companies help insurance and all of them pay tremendous money to all of the people you see. and every one of those people is getting a tremendous amount of money. they'll never change the system. me, i'll change it in two minutes. we're going to bid out drugs. we'll not take a price where it's like i'm going into a price and taking it off the shelf. i'm going to save $300 billion with that one move. >> the fact you used to give money to nancy pelosi and headquarter. your opponents have already used that against you. >> i think my opponents --
5:46 pm
>> were you buying access? >> a certain article, a world class businessman. that's what i am. i'm all over the world. jobs in turnberry, in scotland. some of the greatest properties in the world. deals. i had to get along with everybody. >> so you were buying access? >> i am buying friends. >> you were buying friends? >> whatever. i mean, i owed it to myself. >> as a businessman, that's was your job. >> if i needed something, i called. so let's say nancy pelosi comes up to my office and says, donald, could you make a contribution to my -- whatever, my pac. these pacs are disgusting. they are really a problem. let's say i says no. two years later i need her help to get something in california or something. i call her up and say, hi. it's not one for another. it's much more subtle than that. so i go, hi. how are you doing? how have you been? she might not take my phone call. you o the assumption that she
5:47 pm
did and i say, remember when you asked for contributions and i said no? i now need some help on getting environmental permits in california where i have a lot of land, okay? she's going to say don't even talk to me. the system is rigged against the people but i know the system better than anybody else. >> sounds like bernie sanders. >> the difference is bernie sanders can't do it. bernie sanders is right about one thing. the problem is, he can't do anything about it. i can renegotiate with china because i am a free trader. i want to keep -- it's got to be fair trade. bernie can't do anything about it because bernie never created a job in his life. he never created a job in his life. i created tens of thousands of jobs. look, if i win, i'll be the greatest jobs creator. there will be nobody even close that god ever created. nobody is going to be like me for this. >> more of my conversation in our next hour. a group of new hampshire
