tv At This Hour With Berman and Bolduan CNN March 14, 2016 8:00am-9:01am PDT
selection show. they can't be happy either. now, i know we have to get, carol, if you want to go to cnn.com/anchors, you can try to take down carol costello and the rest of us at cnn. >> i almost last year, and i plan to win this year. coy, thank you. thank you for joining me today. i'm carol costello. at this hour with berman and bolduan starts now. >> i'm a better person than the people i'm running against. >> donald trump is a pathological liar. >> whoever goes up against donald trump better be ready. >> there is no place for a national lead toer to prey on t fears of people. >> i think a significant number of republicans won't vote for donald trump. >> if he's the nominee, i think it's a disaster. >> we're going to win, win, win.
>> hello, everybody. i'm kate bolduan. >> i'm john berman. campaign frenzy this morning. just another manic monday, as the bangles say. donald trump about to speak any minute at a big rally in hickory, north carolina. it was worth the price of admission. less than 24 hours to go until the most super of all super tuesday. live pictures right now of hickory, north carolina where donald trump is about to speak. we have trump speaking, cruz, rubio, clinton, kasich, they're all out working this morning, right now. for some of these candidates after tomorrow there might not be any day after tomorrow, if you know what i mean. >> five states are holding contests tomorrow. what happens in the state can and likely will reshape the race for the white house. two republican campaigns facing make or break moments. john kasich has said if he does not win his home state tomorrow, he doesn't see a path forward, and rubio facing the same calculation in his home state of florida. all of this is against that
backdrop, it is violence, not the issues that has dominated the campaign trail since this weekend. the front runner, donald trump, at the center of it all. let's go live right now to cnn's chris frates who is at the trump rally in north carolina at the moment. chris, what are you seeing so far? >> reporter: good morning. i'll tell you, a very expecting crowd here in north carolina. they're being entertained by an american idol contestant as they wait for donald trump. he's been delayed. he had to land in charlotte, north carolina, about an hour away from here. things are a little bit delayed, but people are waiting for him. it's a mellow crowd, not like the protests we saw in chicago and st. louis. not a lot of additional security or usual security here in hickory. the secret service, local law enforcement out as usual, and the private security that donald trump has had to start the last week or ten days, that private
security that is at the rallies to get the proeser thes out as quickly as possible. he's going to sit down with chris christie for a one on one interview in north carolina. north carolina going to the polls tomorrow. he's going to be barn storming after north carolina. he goes to florida after that. and then he goes to ohio, cancelling a rally in florida to be at ohio. that's because he's neck and neck with kasich there. the only place where he's really facing losing the establishment. mitt romney campaigning with john kasich, making two stops in ohio today. romney being very critical of donald trump saying he should not be the republican candidate. john boehner also from ohio coming out in favor of john kasich, endorsing him this week. the establishment hoping they can stop donald trump in ohio. he's feeling so good that he's not campaigning in florida. that's because he's up by double
digits against rubio, the senator making his last stand in the sun shine state, hoping to make a come can from behind victory there and keep his presidential hopes alive. of course, all winner take all contests here. florida and ohio, first winner take all contests, i99 delegate at stake in florida. 66 in ohio. if he takes both ohio and florida, a good chance he's going to be hard to stop for that nomination. >> the crowd going wild for chris frates behind him. >> those two chairs on the stage, one of them for chris christie who is apparently going to interview donald trump. let's hope he asks all the tough questions. we'll bring it back to you as soon as it begins. that should be interesting to see. >> i wonder what the topics will be. >> donald trump is being slammed repeatedly by the democrats running for president. bernie sanders called donald
trump a pathological liar. hillary clinton says hooee's a political arsonist. again, the crowd going wild for jeff zeleny in chicago. what do you know? >> reporter: last night you could hardly keep track of all the attacks on donald trump. it's clear the candidates are trying to show their strength to their fellow democratic voters by showing who would be tougher to take an donald trump. they've been really devoting the lion's share of their stump speeches -- i was at a rally last night in ohio. off the bat bernie sanders wasn't talking about himself or hillary clinton. he was talking about donald trump. so, of course, it is something that they're trying to do to show that there is strength going forward. this is the final 24 hour stretch here. look at the campaign schedules of these democrats. hillary clinton spending considerable amount of time here in chicago. she'll be at a rally behind me in a little bit, and she'll also be doing some unscheduled stops
across chicago. she clearly is a little bit worried about her home state of illinois here in their primary tomorrow. >> and, jeff, it's interesting to see. in chicago and illinois, the mayor of chicago, rahm emanuel is becoming the centerpiece of discussion, and not in a flattering way. >> he is. rahm emanuel is hardly a soft spoken person who recesses to the background. that's exactly what he's doing this campaign. he's not been front and center. he's a big supporter of clinton's. he owes his political career from its beginning to the clintons. but he now has had such a tough approval rating here in the city of chicago at some 27% approval in the latest poll. bernie sanders is exploiting that. he's running television ads about it. he's talking about bernie sanders at campaign rallies, including one over the weekend. let's take a listen.
>> based on his disastrous record as mayor of the city of chicago, i do not want mayor emanuel's endorsement if i win the democratic nomination. >> reporter: if you wonder why it matters, hillary clinton needs a strong showing from minority voters, black and hispanics here in chicago. a lot of them are displeased with rahm emanuel. that's why she's here today, trying to drive up excitement in her home state of illinois. if she loses illinois, that's a big black mark on her candidacy. >> jeff, we'll keep an eye on that with you. >> joining us to does what the candidates are doing and what it means for tomorrow, margaret hoover, kelly ann conway, and erol lewis. five states tomorrow. two of them winner take all.
what does it look like right now? >> if you're going to read the two legs right now, what we see in the polling is a collapse for rubio in florida. sadly for those of us who thought he could coalesce the mainstream moderate republicans. >> there's only about -- >> john kasich, on the other hand is doing well. for republicans, all eyes are on ohio. can kasich beat back donald trump. if he can, the chances of a contested convention actually do become more realistic. >> that was a question that people were throwing out there last week, but it's become kind of the central question now. trump wins florida. kasich wins ohio. what then? >> well, if either of those things happen, then we basically sort of move the ball to the next super tuesday. there will be several more sort of key dates when big states including new york will put more delegates on the table. the extent of the question is whether or not donald trump will become the nominee, it all
depends on how close he gets to 1237 delegates. any delegate that goes somewhere else, whether it's proportional state or winner take all state j is good news for the rest of the candidates. it's a reason for ted cruz and maybe even marco rubio to take heart. >> kelly ann conway, you've been busy over the last several days in places like missouri, and north carolina. there's a lot of focus on florida. >> cruz has engaged in delegate collection. that's how you win the nomination. even in states with proportional delegates, he trails by 90. you can make it up in a matter of a couple contests. it looks like rubio is running for senator of florida and kasich for governor of ohio. they hold those positions. they've been stuck in their home states. while that's been going on, cruz
has been traveling around investing a great ground game. we've been giving ground cover on the radio and tv and with our volunteers. cruz yesterday, rally of thousands of people in the rain in missouri and illinois. in missouri it's fascinating. you can actually use the popular vote in missouri and win a lot of delegates because it goes by congressional district. >> that's true. ted cruz isn't in the story right now, but he is second, and he is viable. he has some advantages. his home state of texas was first. he's been able to put his resources in other states. he has the superior digital team. it's better than donald trumps or any of the other republican candidates. the states lined up after this tuesday are not states where he's premised the entire high bo both sis of his campaign. he doesn't speak spanish and doesn't -- all of his policy
positions -- >> we both know. >> that's not the case. >> with all do respect, if you're in trump world, you've been hearing the same argument for months. well, if you don't lose iowa, you'd better drop out. he wins iowa. >> suited to his strengths? . >> then rubio should endorse him and help him campaign in those states. there's a great idea. >> there's one idea i'm sure cruz would endorse. you've mentioned someone else hitting the campaign trail today that we haven't discussed in the last hour maybe. mitt romney, he's hitting the campaign trail with john kasich. what's the bep fit there? what's the impact? >> first of all, he's kund putt his money where his mouth is, kind of. >> kind of? >> there was a big dramatic speech where he said if you believed in me in 2012, help me stop donald trump. he's been clear about that. he's even encouraged some
strategic voting. we'll see what his reception is. there's a lot of people, this talk about he ran a disastrous campaign, i remember it differently. there was genuine feeling toward him toward the end by leaders of the conservative movement. we'll see if he still has some staying power. if there is some fond memories, if there's something left of an organization on the ground that might respond to him. this is the same organization that put in kasich and turned out the vote for romney. >> not in missouri. he should have done it in michigan or utah. >> he's campaigning in counties where -- these are places where it's all about driving up the voter numbers and driving up the actual vote so kasich can get over the top. >> stand by. we'll talk to you again a little bit. a programming note. tomorrow in case you didn't note
j is a big day. we'll have complete coverage of what we're calling super tuesday part three. the worse named primary voting of the year. >> but the most important. >> but the most important. florida, illinois, north carolina, and ohio, all up for grabs. we have reporters everywhere. we have analysts like you would not believe and the best responsibiliti correspondents covering this. >> get excited. hillary clinton with the secret game plan in the works to beat donald trump in a general. what is this secret strategy in her campaign will be joining us live. >> plus new this morning, donald trump blames bernie sanders for the violence at his rally, and ben carson is now warning that the violence could escalate. we'll get the perspective now from the secret service. you both have a

this hour. we'd love to bring some of that to you. there are audio issues we're trying to get fixed. we'll bring that to you if we can get a better audio. this after a weekend of donald trump defending himself and pointing the blame at others like bernie sanders for the violence that continues to break out at his campaign rallies. >> we want to bring in scottie nel hues, and bakari seller, and a former secret service agent who served five years on president obama's detail. obviously, security is a serious issue right now. scottie, i want to start with you. we saw the violence in chicago on friday night. we heard marco rubio over the weekend say it's a matter of time before someone gets killed at this rate. ben carson said the violence could get any worse. are you satisfied with how
donald trump responded which is to say not my problem. >> the constitution gives us the right to peaceably assemble and voice our opinion, and freedom of expression and association. all those were denied to trump supporters because of what was going on on the inside. what we need to realize is these trump events, this is my ticket from the knoxville trump event. you register ahead of time because it's a private event. mr. trump pays the bill, usually, for the facility. but it is a private ticketed event inside, and those folks when mr. trump has a protester and yells from the stage get him out of here. he's not saying that to create drama. he's telling security, those folks are no longer allowed at his private event, and he wants them removed. to cancel on friday and say that mr. trump is the reason for all that happening, they are taking the right steps to keep people safe and unfortunately, the only rights that are being troded on
are those of the trump supporters. keeping people from being able to hear who they want to be president. >> and getting to the role of security in a second. continuing along your line of thought, do you think -- like the idea of donald trump saying that he'd consider paying the legal fees of one of his supporters at the rally in north carolina who sucker punched the protester in the face? >> well, he also condemned that action. he does not encourage his sportesport supporters. nobody does. >> if you're going to pay the legal fees, suspect that tacet support? if you're going to say, hey, i don't support it but i'm going to pay your legal fees? >> that's up for mr. donald trump. he didn't say go up and sucker punch. you have to realize the guy is going out. he is sitting there and cursing at home and spitting on them. he's throwing vulgarity symbols at him.
it's not like he wasn't walking out peacefully. that doesn't mean that violence should happen toward him. i don't agree with what the 70-year-old plus man did. this man came in there to try to get attention and get the media spotlight focussed on him which worked which encourages others to do the same. right now mr. trump is trying to figure out how to make it peaceful so people can come and feel safe. >> jonathan, what's your perspective on all of this. we'll get the democratic reaction in a second, but i would really like to get your perspective as the secret service are there with him. other police departments are there as well. what do you see? >> i want to go back to what scottie was saying saying she held up her invited ticket. the trump campaign knows who they are inviting to those events. it either goes to one of two things. either they're not doing a good job at vetting their guests or
they're doing it purposefully, trying to create drama. >> there are people suggesting where they held the event just to create this kind of drama. >> exactly. this goes to political physics. for every action, there's an equal and opposite reaction. this is what the trump campaign has been about since the beginning. getting both sides, creating drama so we can feed into the media. and anybody to say that these people are just getting in continuously time and time again, that's ridiculous. the secret service would never allow that to happen, but the secret service doesn't invite guests into an event or uninvite. >> i want to get your take on the guy who tried to get close to donald trump. that's scary. >> very scary. >> we've had presidential candidates killed, let alone shot. that's scary when someone tries to get on stage with a candidate. >> absolutely. it's scary for the protectee.
any time you have an event like this creates chaos. and what it also does is in the future, it's an invitation for someone else to say look what i can do. i can go out there and disrupt the speech and cause chaos and drama. >> babakari, weigh in. democrats took this on last night at the town hall. you've heard it this morning. bernie sanders calling donald trump a pathological liar saying he's literally inciting violence. hillary clinton saying what he's done is a case of political arson. trump says it's bernie sanders' supporters coming out and disrupting the events. does the blame flow both ways? >> it doesn't. and i want you to know that it's not just democrats who are reacting to this visceral rhetoric that donald trump is pumping into his supporters. i mean, you have marco rubio who
is coming out. my friend ana navarro had a plea trying to get members of her party to denounce the hateful rhetoric from donald trump's mouth. i think the secret service agent said it best. to every action, there's an equal and opposite reaction. and donald trump is playing at the lowest common demon nay or the of people's fear. he's targeting it with rhetoric that is inciteful. and just to push back on scottie slightly. this isn't just about one person who was punched in north carolina. this is also about a young lady who was assaulted in louisville. this is about a hispanic person who was beaten and stripped of their signs. this happens at his events and donald trump is the one on the stage who says i want to punch you in the face. i wish it was the old days where we could carry you out on stretchers. this is not presidential. we're seeing what's happening. >> scottie, last word.
do you support how donald trump is responding to this? do you think it's leadership, the way he's responding? >> i think it is leadership, but let me correct one point. this is open invitation. it's not an invitation anybody can go on and register once it's open. they're not picking and choosing who is there. it's open to the public. >> that's incorrect. you're the host committee. >> no, it's not a host committee. it's an event that anybody, hence how the protesters are getting the tickets. all you have to do is give your name and address and e-mail. that's it. it's not -- it's open. it's an open post on social media, on his website. it's not invitation only. so learn about the subject before you criticize. are we going to have to start vetting every person that comes through? >> yes. that's your responsibility as the in a presidential campaign. >> for thousands and thousands it's the same amount of people that go to a sporting event.
by the kway, there were two officers assaulted by the anti-trump protesters. there were five anti-constitutionalists who were arrested because of their actions. are you also going to condemn their actions or just the people -- >> of course. >> you didn't. you were quick to point out all the other assaults? . >> let's let him answer. >> of course. but scottie, this is asinine. of course we don't want police officers assaulted. >> but they are. >> they're not creating this climate. to say that donald trump is not creating this climate is just drinking that kool-aid and going through with blinders. this is anything but presidential. donald trump does not look like a presidential candidate for the leader of the free world. instead he looks like he's inciting the fights. he's inciting the riots within his own groups of action. this is absurd. it has to stop or somebody is going to die. >> in 2008 president obama and
his campaign said why bring a knife when the other person brings a gun in reference to mccain. i did not hear you calling him out for that then. a little double sided on this one. >> one day to go until voting in supertuesday. the voters will have a say within 24 hours. >> and we'll see what happens in the events. we're monitoring right now a donald trump event which will be taking place in north carolina. it looks like a different tone than over the weekend. >> this morning hillary clinton raising eyebrows after he suggested her presidency would force a big group of workers to lose their job. her campaign responds. plus one of bernie sanders' supporters will join us. he said sanders would, quote, mop the floor with donald trump in november. he'll join us live. the generously appointed es and the new, eight-passenger lx. ♪

you seen bernie sanders right now looking at live pictures at rally in youngstown, ohio. such an old mill steel, manufacturing based area in that state. this is just one day ahead of the huge super tuesday primary in ohio. so many delegates at stake. it's hillary clinton he's running against right now. hillary clinton he needs to beat. he's in a little bit of a feud with donald trump that's taken over to the extent on the campaign trail. >> donald trump blamed bernie sanders' campaign for inciting violence at his rallies. sanders called pathological liar. our next guest says sanders would mop the floor with trump.
let's discuss it with mark ruffalo. mark, thank you for coming in. a lot has happened over the weekend. violence breaking out at a donald trump rally. one protester jumping on stage at a donald trump rally. he points the finger at bernie sanders. what do you make of it? >> well, the violence that's been happening at the trump rallies has been happening before anyone showed up there. and from the bernie sanders camp. you know, i think when you're that negative and that divisive in the world, you're going to have a response, and i think the undertones of racism, of the anti-islamic sentiments, the sort of flirting with the kkk, the asking people to leave just because of their color, like the high school kids and college kids that were asked to leave a couple weeks ago, you're going to have a reaction to it, and
it's not necessarily just bernie people. it's people who believe that that kind of divisiveness in our politics today is wrong. and how do we deal with that? we protest it. that's one of the things -- that's a powerful tool that americans have at their disposal in order to say that something is wrong. you come out into the streets. you protest, and so it's the kind of protest you saw in chicago in the open forum was the perfect place to do that. >> would you advise people who are against donald trump to do that again, to go to trump events and try to keep them from talking. there are people who say that they contributed to the atmosphere friday night. and it was a dangerous atmosphere. we saw punches thrown on the floor. >> you're not going to go to any other politician's rally and see that kind of rally. you might get ejected, but there's no other candidate in recent history where you've had so much violence happening after
their protest. that's a rhetorical attitude coming from the candidate himself. >> do the protesters have any blame? >> unless they're involved, they bear blame. the protesters should be able to protest anywhere they want. we have a right to congregate and protest anywhere, and so if you feel strongly enough about it, then that's what you do. you protest. there doesn't seem to be a lot of pushback in any other way. the mainstream media doesn't seem to be pushing back on him so much. and people think it's important enough. i mean, my kids can't watch a republican debate because of the rhetoric on there. it's violent. and it's so divisive. it's -- and it's crass, by the way. >> we've noticed. >> it's a really deelevated
version of what civics should be in our country today. >> let's talk about an issue that you care deeply about, the flint water crisis. it's something that you care very much about and something that's become a big issue, especially in the democratic side of this race. >> sadly. >> sad all around. you were a very big supporter of bernie sanders. the hillary clinton campaign are quick to point out that hillary clinton was the first to take the flint crisis on. the mayor of flint, michigan has endorsed hillary clinton. something think they have been out in front of on this issue. this issue draws you more to bernie sanders than what you're hearing from clinton? >> hillary was much more publicly out there, but bernie was there. his office basically turned into a virtual water distribution center. he was meeting with people behind closed doors. was that smart? was that a good political move not to have the media there?
i respect him for his approach. it was very sober. it was very personal. it didn't use the people there as a campaign stop. >> do you think that's what clinthillary clinton was doing? >> bill clinton the other day said once we get past ohio, we're going to forget michigan happened. that says a lot. we're not going to forget about what happened in michigan. it's still happening. what's happening in flint is still happening in flint. i think that bernie's approach toward politics in general, if we adopt it, won't let a flint happen. it doesn't put corporations above or even saving money above our people. he's talking about transferring importance to the people. now, when you do that, then you have things like people coming up. people have a way of
communicating their grievances more easily, i think in the political world that bernie sanders is talking about. i'm not taking anything away from hillary. she cares about these people, but the status quo is allowing these things to happen all over the united states. 30 schools in new jersey, led poisoning. in toledo, people lost their water lost summer. in the elk river, massive contamination, 300,000 people lost their water. flint just happens to be one of many. they're the canary in the coal mine. it's a political environment that doesn't respond to the people, and that's, i think what bernie is essentially talking about in this political revolution that he's talking about. >> i think we all agree water just transcend politics. thank you for coming in. >> good to be here. >> any minute now, we're keeping
an eye on live events. chris christie will be sitting in one of the two chairs in north carolina interviewing donald trump on this super tuesday part three eve. yes, that's a technical term. kidding. we've been watching john kasich. he's been speaking live in ohio. >> what's chris christie going to ask donald trump? >> what is your favorite color? pet moments are beautiful, unless you have allergies. then your eyes may see it differently. only flonase is approved to relieve both itchy, watery eyes and congestion. no other nasal allergy spray can say that. when we breathe in allergens our bodies react by over producing six key inflammatory substances that cause our symptoms. most allergy pills only control one substance. flonase controls six. and six is greater than one. complete allergy relief or incomplete. let your eyes decide. flonase. 6>1 changes everything. whewhat does it look like?ss, is it becoming a better professor

kristina. >> thank you for having me. >> there's been a lot of focus over what's happened in the last 24 hours. there was the clashing at the donald trump event that was cancelled friday night. bernie sanders and hillary clinton talking about it last night. hillary clinton called him a political arsonist. >> that's right. and, you know, hillary was the first candidate to speak out against donald trump month and months ago when he called mexicans racist. she called on the other republican candidates to take him on. i think a lot of them probably wish they had at that time. she's continued to focus on his bullying and bigotry. she thought it was really important to speak out about what happened. >> we heard from donald trump supporters. we heard from one who said let the man hold his events. just as much as protesters have the right to protest, doesn't donald trump have the right to hold events? >> he has a right to hold his events, and hillary believes we
can disagree without hurling insults. he needs to take responsibility for the tone of his events. he's been encouraging violence. he has been pitting americans against each other as a way to get votes. she thinks that's wrong. he has been talking about deporting millions of hard working immigrants in a country that was built my immigrants. he's been talking about banning muslims in country built on religious freedom. you can't make america great by going against what makes america great in the first place. she thinks he needs to take responsibility for what's happening. it's troubling what's happening on the republican side of the contest. >> let's talk about the town hall. hillary clinton was talking about jobs training, and she made a statement which, i think, a lot of people found curious. let's watch. >> i'm the only candidate which has a policy about how to bring
economic opportunity using clean renewable energy as the key into coal country, because we're going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business. right, tim? we're going to make it clear that we don't want to forget those people. >> we're going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business. how's that going to play in pennsylvania, ohio, and virginia. >> she wasn't very clear about how she said that. she actually has a plan to help coal miners and their communities transition to clean energy. >> you're wishing she hadn't said it like that? >> i think for months she's been talking about coal miners, and the transition that they've gone through in the economy since the 1980s. they've been losing jobs. she thinks leaders in washington d.c. haven't paid enough attention. she has a plan to invest in job
training and repurposing mining sites and factories to help them transition. she didn't say it gracefully, but when you look at her record, she's the one that's really with coal can miners and -- miners in getting the respect they deserve. >> she's in chicago today. i want to turn to chicago. she's having an event there today. she has a long relationship with rahm emanuel. does she still support rahm emanuel? >> i think this is just the latest in attacks from bernie sanders trying to tie her to the mayor. she's been very clear that the justice department. she's the first candidate to say the justice department needed to do a review of the shooting and the chicago police department, and the first speech she gave in this campaign was about criminal justice reform. her record is clear. i think this is the latest attempt to distort and distract
and try to make this more negative in the final days. >> you say it's barnd eaernie s attempt to tie her to rahm emanuel. >> she's been clear and will be looking for the justice department report. >> great to have you with us. thank you so much. >> we appreciate it. busy day tomorrow. >> a big interview coming up. chris christie doing the ver vi -- the interview. this is set to begin. we'll bring it to you moments away.

sfwha looking live at hickory, north carolina. quite an interview setting. donald trump and the man who was formerly his rival, chris christie, sitting down right now and kind of vamping with each other, doing an interview. let's listen in. >> so it's one of those things. one thing interesting, two years ago they went out to bid with the old post office in washington, d.c. it's the single best location in washington and everybody wanted
projects. and i ended up getting it it. and i got it because my financial statement was the best or right there along with all these other great in many cases big public companies and also because we had the best concept. we'll build a tremendous super luxury hotel, one of the best anywhere in the country and i think maybe the best in the country. but interesting employee got it in the obama administration, everyone wanted it, waldorf astoria. and what we have now, we started construction. we're over a year in terms of schedule we're a year ahead of schedule, we're right on budget, even up tunder budget. and i'd be way under budget except i upped the marble.
but the point is it's underschedule,up under budget. and i'd be way under budget except i upped the marble. but the point is it's underschedule,p under budget. and i'd be way under budget except i upped the marble. but the point is it's underschedule, under budget. and i'd be way under budget except i upped the marble. but the point is it's underschedule, we're open a year ahead. we'll open september and it wasn't supposed to open for many months after that. and it would be great when we do the infrastructure of the country we could be underbudget and ahead of schedule. >> and i think that relates to one of tfof the big issues you' brought up, which is trade. and how would you bring the same kind of principles you've brought to billion great property, mappinging a great company to our relationship with trade with other countries around the world? >> one of the biggest problems we have in our country is trade. we're bad traders. we have the worst people representing us. we have political hacks. we have political hacks. we have a trade deficit with china this year, $505 billion. think of it. $505 billion. we have trade deficit with japan
that is shocking. we have -- by the way with mexico, i have great relationships with mexico and with hispanic people. i employ thousands of hispanics. they're great. but with mexico, we have $50 billion trade deficit and when i say we'll build a wall, which we will, by the way -- they love the wall. love the wall. we love the wall. we'll build a wall, folks. we're going to build a wall. are you ready? who is going to pay for the wall? 100% correct. okay. and when i get off stage with like marco and i get off stage with kasich -- [ crowd noise ]
tremendous rallies, sometimes 25,000, 30,000. we had one two weeks ago in alabama, 35,000 people. no disruption. no nothing. but the press is now calling saying, oh, but there is such violence. you know how many people have been hurt at our rallies? i think like basically none other than i guess maybe somebody got hit once or something. but there is no violence. and you know, in chicago we canceled because there was a huge group of people formed like 3,000. we're going to have 25,000 people in chicago. and they have given me a lot of credit, chris, because wraerath than having the rally and having people fighting, because the people that are supporters of donald trump want to see america be great again. that's what it is. that's what it is. it's simple. so rather than fighting in chicago, i did something that
was a good move, a good decision, because i don't quant want to see anybody be hurt. and we've been given so much credit for that decision. nobody hurt, no problem. it went away. but because of that, people say, well, is there violence. there is no violence. there a love fest. these are love fests. and every once in a while, i mean, sometimes like you just had somebody will stand up and say something and the police who are so great by the way in all cases, they're great. but somebody will stand up and they will say something and a lot of times they're kids and they don't know where they're coming from and they will have a bernie sign. bernie is going nowhere. you know that. but they will have a bernie sign. probably given to them by bernie. they're the bernie signs. they're made by machine. they're made the same signs that you see. and possibly or probably given to by bernie's people. but it's a little disruption. but there is no violence.
none whatsoever. and we go and these things are so incredible. it's a movement and it's a love fest and we love each other and we're going to so well. and before we forget, chris, so important tomorrow, north carolina, you have to go out and vote. you have to vote. >> absolutely. and you've talked a lot at recent rallies about how you want to unguy the country. and how divided the country is by this president. and i think people would love to hear that. >> the country is so guidivided. it's very sad. and even when you have some of the protesters, the level of anger from all sides. including the anger from our side. we're angry. now, we're not angry people. we're not angry people. we're all -- we're good people. but there is a lot of anger. and there
