What did Mr Trump say last night?
President Trump did a phenomenal job. We did. We got the gowns we got the masks we made the ventilators. You wouldn’t have made ventilators and now we’re weeks away from a vaccine, we’re doing therapeutics already fewer people are dying when they get sick far fewer people are dying we’ve done a great job. They only think I haven’t done a good job and that’s because of the fake news. No matter what you say to them they give you bad press on it. It’s fake news. They give you good press, they give me bad press, because that’s the way it is unfortunately. But let me just tell you something I don’t care, I’ve gotten used to it, but I’ll tell you Joe you could never have done the job that we did, you don’t have it in your blood, you could never have done that job.
Young children aren’t [vulnerable], even younger people aren’t, we’ve learned a lot.
On large rallies with thousands of people packed together:
People want to hear what I want to say. 25,000, 30,000 people show up at airports, we use airports, we see a lot of people, well, so far we have had no problem whatsoever, [Herman Cain] it’s outside that’s a big difference according to the experts, we do ’em outside, we have tremendous crowds.
On Climate change:
I want crystal clear water and air I want beautiful clean air we have now the lowest carbon if you look at our numbers right now we are doing phenomenally but I haven’t destroyed our businesses, our businesses aren’t put out of- commission. If you look at the Paris accord it was a disaster from our standpoint and people are actually very happy about what’s going on [California fires?] because our businesses are doing well as far as the fires are concerned you need forest management in everything else the forest floors are loaded up with trees dead trees that are years old and they’re like tinder and leaves and everything else you drop a cigarette and the whole forest burns down. You’ve got to have forest management.
What do you believe about the science of climate change, sir?
I believe that we have to do everything we can to have immaculate air immaculate water and do what else we can that’s good you know we’re planting a billion trees the billion tree project it’s very exciting
Do you believe that human pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, contributes to the global warming?
I think a lot of things do but I think to an extent yes, but I also think, we have to do better management, of our forests, every year I get the call, California’s burning, California’s burning, if that was clean, if that were if you had forest management good forest management you wouldn’t be getting those calls you know in Europe they live their forest cities they’re called forest cities, they maintain their forests, they manage their forests, I was with the head of a major country, it’s a forest city, he said “Sir, we have trees that are far more they ignite much easier than California they shouldn’t be that problem” I spoke with the Governor about it I’m getting on very well with the Governor and he said y’know what some point you can’t every year have hundreds of thousands of acres of land just burnt to the ground that’s burning down because of a lack of management.
It’s not 2bn or 20bn as you said, it’s 100tn dollars, where they want to rip down buildings, and rebuild the buildings, it’s the dumbest, where aeroplanes are out of business, where two car systems are out, where they want to take out the cows, too, that’s not true either, right? This is a 100 that’s more money than our country could make in a hundred years it would destroy…
On election fairness:
So when I listened to Joe talking about a transition there’s been no transition from when I won I won that election and if you look at crooked Hilary Clinton if you look at all of the different people there was no transition because they came after me trying to do a coup, they came after me spying on my campaign, they started from the day I won and even before I won from the day I came down the escalator with our first lady they were a disaster they were a disgrace to our country and we’ve caught ‘em, we’ve caught ‘em all, we’ve got it all on tape we’ve caught ‘em all, and by the way you gave the idea for the Logan act against General Flynn, you’d better take a look at that because we caught you in a sense and President Obama was sitting in the office he knew about it too so don’t tell me about a pre transition. As far as the ballots are concerned it’s a disaster. A solicited ballot, OK, solicited, is OK, you’re soliciting, you’re asking they send it back you send it back, I did that, if you have an unsolicit- they sending millions of ballots all over the country, there’s fraud, they found them in creeks, they found some with the name Trump just happened to have the name Trump just the other day in a wastepaper basket they’re being sent all over the place they sent two in a Democrat area they sent out a thousand ballots everybody got two ballots this is going to be a fraud like you’ve never seen, and another thing, it’s nice, on November third, you’re watching and you see who won the election, and I think we’re going to do well, because people are really happy with the job we’ve done, but you know what, we won’t know we might not know for months, because these ballots are going to be all over. Take a look at what in Manhattan, take a look at what happened in New Jersey, take a look at what happened in Virginia, and another places, they’re not losing 2% 1% which by the way is too much an election can be won or lost with that they’re losing 30 and 40% it’s a Fraud and it’s a Shame and can you imagine when they say you have to have your ballot in by November 10th November 10th that means, that’s seven days after the election in theory should have been announced we have major states with that all run by Democrats. All run by Democrats, they rig.
What’s happening is incredible I just heard I read today we’re leading 1% of the ballots for 2016 were invalidated they take ‘em we don’t like ‘em we don’t like ‘em.
Take a look at West Virginia Mailmen selling the ballots they’re being sold, they’re being dumped in rivers, this is a horrible thing for our country this is not going to end well. This is not going to end well.
I’m urging my supporters to go to the polls and watch very carefully because that’s what has to happen I am urging them to do it as you know today there was a big problem in Philadelphia they went in to watch they’re called poll watchers very safe very nice thing they were thrown out they weren’t allowed to watch you know why? Because bad things happen in Philadelphia bad things, and I am urging, I am urging my people I hope it’s gonna be a fair election if it’s a fair election, I am 100% on board, but I see tens of thousands of ballots being manipulated, I can’t go along with that, and I’ll tell you what, common sense, I’ll tell you what it means, it means you have a fraudulent election, you’re sending out 80m ballots, they’re not equipped to, these people aren’t equipped to handle it, number one, number two they cheat, they Cheat, hey, they found ballots in a wastepaper basket three days ago and they all had the name military ballots they were military they all had the name Trump on ‘em. Do you think that’s good?
Take a look at Carolyn Maloney’s race in, look at Carolyn Maloney, they have no idea what happened.
On 6 January, at the “Save America Rally”, he said,
All of us here today do not want to see our election victory stolen by [sic] bold and radical left Democrats which is what they are doing and stolen by the fake news media. That is what they have done and what they are doing. We will never give up. We will never concede. It doesn’t happen. You don’t concede when there’s theft involved. … Our country has had enough. We will not take it anymore, and that is what this is all about. … And to use a favorite term that all of you people really came up with, we will stop the steal. … We will not let them silence your voices. We’re not going to let it happen.
But just remember this, you’re stronger, you’re smarter. You’ve got more going than anybody and they try and demean everybody having to do with us and you’re the real people. You’re the people that built this nation. You’re not the people that tore down our nation. … Republicans are constantly fighting like a boxer with his hands tied behind his back. It’s like a boxer. And we want to be so nice. We want to be so respectful of everybody, including bad people. We’re going to have to fight much harder and Mike Pence is going to have to come through for us. If he doesn’t, that will be a sad day for our country because you’re sworn to uphold our constitution. Now it is up to Congress to confront this egregious assault on our democracy.
After this, we’re going to walk down and I’ll be there with you. We’re going to walk down. Anyone you want, but I think right here, we’re going to walk down to the Capitol–And we’re going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women and we’re probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them. Because you’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength and you have to be strong
. . . . I said something is wrong here, something is really wrong, can’t have happened and we fight, we fight like hell, and if you don’t fight like hell you’re not going to have a country anymore. … [W]e are going to try–give our Republicans, the weak ones because the strong ones don’t need any of our help, we’re try–going to try and give them the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country. So let’s walk down Pennsylvania Avenue.
On the video he tweeted to the rioters, he said,
I know your pain. I know you’re hurt. We had an election that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election and everyone knows it, especially the other side. But you have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order. … So go home. We love you, you’re very special. … I know how you feel. But go home and go home in peace.
