5:54 pm
goes the other way. then we get up, we blast the hell out of them. what happens? iran takes over. not only do they make the greatest deal i have ever seen made, with $150 billion, they should never have gotten that money. they should have released the prisoners four years ago. not get money like it is ransom. i told that story all the time. i kept thinking they would walk. we kept giving up. the people are dancing in the streets. head thecalling the "supreme leader." i will never call him that. you know what you do? three or four years ago, you have the prisoners.

5:56 pm
he copied a false story from the new york times. this is one of the most dishonest media groups i have ever seen. here's the good news. it is losing its shirt. somebody will buy it as a vanity project. the new york times is so dishonest. they did a story that was inaccurate. i said, i said to the press, and they gave me heat -- they have to report accurately. if they don't report accurately, all of us should have the right to sue. you know what? this has nothing to do with freedom of the press. but when they don't report accurately, we should have the right to sue, to get them to report accurately with damages. right now, the libel laws don't mean a thing. they will be tougher on me now.
5:57 pm
they are so dishonest, these reporters. they are, i think, i will tell i am running against people, i have dealt with politicians my whole life. you're not going to see this crowd, they will not show the crowd. they will leave here, we will people, more,000 of their standing, and you know what will happen? the store tomorrow will say, "donald trump made a speech in front of an ok crowd." when they write in accurately -- have totely, we hold them to that. they are going to regret all of the bad stories they write. i am running against dishonest people. little marco rubio. featherweight.
