10:04 pm
president of the united states. aboutt are you thinking the friendship? >> we have a great friendship. they are great people. a lot of people from bulgaria are in this country. they have become citizens of the united states. we are going to be talking about the visa program per the request of your prime minister. they are great people and we have a very good relationship. >> [indiscernible] >> i think what i am doing is sticking up for our armed forces. there has never been a president that will stick up for them and has like i have including the play $5t we spent to trillion building up our armed forces. very unfair things were happening. you let sergeant bergdahl go. you let others go including a personentleman, now a
10:05 pm
whopresident obama let go stole tremendous amounts of classified information. and you let that person go. but, sergeant bergdahl, we just lost another man -- he died last week. he was paralyzed from about the neck down and he died last week. going after sergeant bergdahl. trying to find him. when you have a system that allows sergeant bergdahl to go and you probably had five or six people killed. no one knows the number. because he left. and he gets a slap on the wrist if that and then you have a system where these warriors get put in jail for 25 years, i am going to stick up for the warriors. thank you very much, everybody. this is what i'm talking about, chelsea manning. if you had any doubt. you have chelsea manning who after chelsea manning was i
10:06 pm
assume pardoned by president obama, chelsea manning went around and badmouth president obama on top of everything else. so when you have a chelsea manning who stole classified information and did many things that were not good and gets pardoned or whatever happened and you have a sergeant bergdahl who gets virtually nothing, a slap on the wrist. and then they want to put these warriors in jail for 25 years? one of them served six years in jail and has many years left. as a fighter. no, we're not going to do that to our people. >> [indiscernible] >> i don't know. rudy is a great guy. he covered that himself, you know that. rudy is a best mayor in the history of new york, in my opinion. the strongest mayor, the best mayor.
10:07 pm
he was a great crimefighter and corruption fighter. probably the best in 50 years both while he was here and the u.s. attorney in the southern district. rudy is a great person. i think that may be the press is not treating rudy very well and i think that is unfair. but rudy was a great mayor and a great crimefighter. >thank you very much. >> [indiscernible] >> i might come. it is a country where we have a lot in common. we have a prime minister that we like a lot so that could happen. thank you very much, everybody. thank you, everybody. -- i can tell you that it is sitting on nancy pelosi's desk. please. please. , the great trade
