DONALD TRUMP ON CASHIN' IN
DONALD TRUMP: I say what I say, which is ‘let’s make America great again.’ Basically, what I want to do Eric, is to make this country great again. This country is going in such the wrong direction, and it’s not going to be turned around very easily because believe me, we’re very far down. And almost, because I mean it very respectfully, in big trouble, ok? And I’m doing the right thing and saying the right things in terms of the country. But the level of animosity and the level of hatred of some people, who I think are good people, are incredible. Likewise, the level of support is incredible, including some of the pundits in all fairness. So, uh, it’s a mixed bag, and I’m out there, but you see the poll numbers have been fantastic, I’m very happy with it and hopefully I’ll get the chance to make our country great again.
B BLOCK: DONALD TRUMP ANSWERS YOUR QUESTIONS
DONALD TRUMP: I would love to do a great healthcare plan. A plan that’s affordable. We have to repeal and replace ObamaCare, it’s a disaster. People can’t afford it. It’s turned out to be a total catastrophe. And it only kicks in really big league in 2016. So nobody knows how bad it is. Obama is going to be maybe at one of my golf courses playing golf. Nobody knows how bad it is. And it’s going to kick in in ‘16. People know it’s bad. But the real effect is going to be in another year and a half, two years. So I would say healthcare, but there’s so many other things. Veterans stuff we have to do. The military we have to rebuild and make it strong. I want to have our military so strong that nobody is going to mess with us. Everybody says I’ll be the best economically for the country, from the economic standpoint. I think I’ll be the best from the standpoint of the military, if you want to know the truth. I think it’ll be equal. We have to rebuild our military and make ourselves really strong again. We’ve never been at a time when we’ve had so much danger as we do now.
CASHIN' IN CREW ON DONALD TRUMP SAYING HE'S NOT BEHOLDEN TO ANYONE
WAYNE ROGERS: Well the process has always had that and it always will have that because money is going to talk, they have to spend money on ads, when they go on the road; they have to do all of that. He’s fortunate that he doesn’t have to, in the sense that he has his own money. And he can talk the way he wants to. I don’t really think he talks about issues as much as it’s a question that he’s a child of television. It’s a style over substance issue and he’s terrific at it, there’s no doubt about it. He doesn’t need anyone else’s money so he doesn’t need to pander to that group.
JONATHAN HOENIG: Eric he says he doesn’t have to be obligated to people who give him money, I just wish I believed it. He’s been so philosophically and practically inconsistent on so many issues. I think that if he was against patronage and politics, he would come out in favor of a free market. Truly Donald Trump has talked about trade tariffs, he’s been on both sides of many, many issues, so I’d like to believe that he wouldn’t be beholden to special interests, but his inconsistencies make me wonder.
MICHELLE FIELDS: I do, I think so. Look, I know Democrats keep saying all Hispanics hate Donald Trump, but I’m Latina and I actually like Donald Trump and that’s the reason why. I like someone who is running for president that isn’t a career politician trying to climb the political ladder. He’s not trying to get money from big donors; he’s not trying to kiss up to all these rich people asking them for money, I like that. He’s talking about issues, like immigration, that Americans care about but the GOP does not want to talk about. The establishment does not want to talk about that issue and he’s making that an issue. And he’s forcing other candidates to talk about issues that they don’t want to.
