TRUMP: His weakness is with the Tea Party. And they just aren't going for him yet. I think they might.
Look. I think ultimately everybody wants somebody that's going to beat Obama. Now, I met Herman Cain. What a great guy. Really a good guy. And he said to me, he said, you know, I'm up here not even for the endorsement. I just don't want you to bash me on television because I seem to get people like you, especially between you and Greta and Bill O'Reilly, he said, you know, I just think it's sort of great. We just had a great time.
HANNITY: What do you think of his 999 plan?
TRUMP: I think the sales tax aspect is tough because frankly, that would be a good thing for somebody like me and I'm not looking for that. You know, I'd love to have my income tax lowered and the sales tax because, you know, how many hamburgers can you buy, OK. But I think he hasn't explained it fully, and I think he will, and I think he's expecting to.
HANNITY: Do you think he can sustain? He had one problem on a question about understanding right of return in the Middle East. Is that a problem for him?
TRUMP: You know, if somebody's a great leader and if they're really understanding people, you're going to hire the right people. You'll get the right people. You'll going to find out for instance, me. I would get the sharpest business people. If the president of the United States called one of the great killers that we read about all day long, about, you know, for the last 25 years making good deal, good deal, good deal, always good deals, right? If that killer who is tired of making deals, I mean, if he gets a call from the president of the United States, would you do me a favor and help me negotiate with China, help me negotiate with OPEC, help me with India where there, you know, everyone, you talk about outsourcing. India is like unbelievable, we need help. That guy would be so happy. I know them all. They'd be so proud to do it. They'd call home and say the president just called.
HANNITY: If Obama called you, would you take the job?
TRUMP: Well, I don't think he'd call me. You know, he should have called me before. You know, just so you understand, I was his biggest cheerleader. I thought he won, and I was saying if you go back three years, I'm saying do a great job. I wanted him to do a great job. I still want him to do a great job. It's not going to happen because the first thing he'd have to do is end Obamacare, OK, and I think that's going to be a hard thing for him to do, appeal.
HANNITY: It's the Holy Grail for liberals.
TRUMP: Well, you know, it's an impossible thing for him to do, I guess, but he has to do it. Businesses are going to close down because of Obamacare, so he's going to have to do something with Obamacare. But I really thought that hey, he got elected, he used the word change. Well, we got change all right. You know what the change is. We got change, you know where we got it. It's a disaster.
So, the other thing I'm surprised is that I thought he was a positive person always. I thought he'd be like a cheerleader for the country. Like every once in a while you see a political guy without great experience, but he's a great cheerleader, he or she is a great cheerleader for the country.
I thought Obama would be a great cheerleader for the country and it's turned out to be just the opposite, and he is creating absolutely class warfare. I actually don't think you wouldn't have those kids down to Wall Street and now all over the country without what he's saying. I think he's crediting a class warfare that is a very dangerous thing for the country and it's dangerous even for him, but there's a warfare that's going on now among different groups of people that we never had before.
HANNITY: But isn't it a danger on his part, class warfare, and more importantly, the Democratic Party has been attacking the Tea Party conservatives as racist, you know, Maxine Waters, the conservative Tea Party movement can go straight to hell. One congressman says that conservatives want black people hanging from trees. They double down on insane rhetoric. The president has wrapped his arms twice now around the "Occupy Wall Street" crowd. And isn't there a danger --
TRUMP: I think the race card is such a horrible thing. And I've been watching it more and more lately. And I think it's disgraceful. And when Obama gets 95 percent of the black vote, is that racist? I mean, you know, does anybody ever mention that? He gets 95 percent of the vote. And I see your compatriots, your announcers saying yes, he got 95 percent of the black vote but this wasn't a racial thing. They like his policy. That's a lot of crap.
But he's creating a racial divide and I think he's doing it on purpose and I think it's a very unfair thing and it's a very bad thing.
