>> sean: welcome to the special edition of "hannity," and happy thanksgiving for the hour, we will be bringing you some of our biggest interviews from the past few months. tonight we start with my most recent interview with president trump. take a look. >> sean: mr. president thank you so much -- >> thank you. >> sean: i've interviewed you a lot over the years. going to do something i've never done. i want to read the transcript because everyone talks about whistle-blowers, not whistle-blowers. >> president trump: that's fine. >> sean: okay, it says, i'd like you to do us a favor. your first talk about congratulations, relationship like you to do us a favor though
because our country has been through a lot, ukraine knows a lot about it. i would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation, ukraine, they say crowd strike. and i guess you have one of your wealthy people, the server. they say ukraine has it. the whole situation. i would like to have the attorney general call you or your people and i like to get to the bottom of it. >> president trump: and by the way, just so you understand it's perfect. we're looking at the 2016 election, which was a disaster. we went through hell, my penetration. people were destroyed, their lives were destroyed. not one person included, found no collusion, no nothing. and they went through hell. there was a server, the dnc server that never went to the fbi. the fbi didn't take it. referring to that, that's not for an election that's going into the future, that's for a past election that was a
catastrophe and was a very unfair situation and after two and half years, or two years they found no collusion, no nothing. >> sean: for investigate is. >> president trump: many. >> sean: house intel bipartisan senate and the mueller investigation. that's right, many, many investigations, that's all they did, and it without one of the most successful administrations in history. the last two and half years, the first one half years of the administration. so when you look at what's going on and then you see all of this horrible stuff and then you hear about ukraine, and you've been hearing about it. i heard clinton was involved. i heard they got somebody that wrote the fake dossier. because you know what? we are investigating corruption and i actually heard gregg jarrett and numerous
people the other day say i have an obligation to do that. that's not a question can i do it or don't i do it? they have an obligation and that's what it was buried in my opinion that's what it was corruption. and if ukraine would know something about it. you have to give that information. i hope they would give the information and everybody agrees with me, they're all saying you have an obligation to do that. i think -- you know, i have a friend who is a very good lawyer, he read that conversation. it's not a letter, it's a conversation taken down and transcribed a perfect conversation. >> sean: you know people -- >> president trump: he actually said that. did you know this was going to be like a document that's going to be analyzed? i said, no, but you have to understand -- i assume there are many people. it's either being taped or they either have stenographers or taping -- i think they don't
like to tape world leaders and i can understand that, so they have stenographers and people who take this down transcribers, and it was a perfect transcription of a perfect conversation. the other thing is, what i'm talking to somebody, world leaders, almost anybody, i assume that state department -- i think mike pompeo was on, i think many people were on, many many people on, do you think i'm going to say something wrong when i feel that there's 25 or 30 or two or ten or something but there's a lot of people on these calls. some i think listen for educational reasons. some listen because they are members of the state department. there are many people listening to these calls and to think they took that call now, the big thing i did with that call sean, the biggest thing is immediately released it, because the whistle-blower came out and said horrible things about this call. i think they said there were seven or eight quid pro quo's. it was really a terrible call. all these terrible things about this call.
i said that wasn't a bad call at all. now what else happened? the president of ukraine came out and said that was a perfectly fine call. there was no pressure. there was no anything. one of his top people, i guess one of his heads of state came out and said this was a perfect call. there was no pressure. they didn't even know what we were talking about. to think that they're using that. now they don't talk about that anymore because that letter was so good, so they don't talk about it anymore, sean. and the reason they don't talk about -- there's nothing to talk about. >> sean: the reason -- the next thing you say though, i think, makes her point. you say, as you saw yesterday the whole nonsense ended with a very poor performance by a man named robert mueller. but they say a lot of it started with ukraine. whatever you can do, it's very important. as my question -- >> president trump: and it did. it ended with a very poor performance.
this was after more than two years of an investigation where they spent $45 million, or something like that. they had 2,500 subpoenas, 500 witnesses, all because probably hillary clinton said, just like she did with tulsi gabbard, just like she did with jill stein. she said jill stein is a russian asset. i don't know jill stein. i know her as an environmentalist, okay? and probably a good woman. the last thing she is is a russian accent. i don't know tulsi gabbard, but i know one thing, she's not an asset of russia. these people are sick. there something wrong with them. we want to want to show you this. i will put it up on our screen for people at home. ukrainian efforts to sabotage trump backfire. this was january 11th 2017. you weren't inaugurated yet. this article talks about how ukraine worked with hillary to influence the election. they give chapter and verse on how they did it. don't you, as the president, do
you feel there was foreign interference in election -- we spent two and a half years hearing about trump-russia collusion. ignore the dossier and ukraine admitting that they helped hillary? >> president trump: well, the dossier was a disgrace. the dossier was totally fake and now it's been proven to be fake. people know how that was done. our track record now you know as well as everybody else, i guess they're doing an investigation but i think before you even do the investigation -- so they do affect dossier. they tried to release it before the election to affect the election. i don't know how they did it. it's probably the only thing i respect about the press is they refused to put it in before the election because it could have had a little impact. maybe could have had more than a little impact so they do affect dossier that was probably meant to get out -- i think definitely meant to get out before the election so that they could affect the election and look at the people that wrote it. and look at where they came from and look at the wife of the man that works -- i won't even mention names.
at the department of justice. and she's on the payroll of the company that robert mueller never heard of during his testimony. >> sean: fusion gps. >> president trump: think of it. never heard of the company. they say do you know fusion gps? they didn't know what was going on here. that's after spending 45 -- >> sean: didn't know that hillary clinton's attorney at the clinton foundation was on his team. >> president trump: look, the whole thing was a disgrace and they destroyed a lot of people. they ruined their lives. >> sean: but i want to go to the double standard again. whether it's the dossier whether it ukraine helping and interfering on our elections whether there is no quid pro quo, then you can add hunter biden and joe biden on tape bragging about using taxpayer dollars to demand the firing of the ukrainian prosecutor. hunter biden, no experience ukraine and china. no experience in oil, gas energy, or private equity. millions of dollars. >> president trump: thrown out of the navy.
okay? hunter biden was thrown out of the navy. >> sean: why was he given that money? was anybody else given that money? >> president trump: it's a payoff. in my opinion it's a payoff. why else would it be? hunter biden, with no experience -- i hear the number is 160,000 and heard they got a $3 million -- >> sean: split between him and another guy. >> president trump: $3 million payment and all of this. and that's corruption. that something that has to be investigated. that's what you have to look. but i watched this crazy anderson cooper the other day during the debate. i apologize for having to ask the question. i apologize. if that were me -- >> sean: he declared innocence. >> president trump: if that were my sons that took $168,000 from his very questionable company, an energy company, and they knew nothing about energy -- he knew nothing about energy and he has a bad record bad track record, including getting thrown out of the navy and even the way he got in the navy is interesting.
in his position. if that were done, jr., if that were eric trump, who are very outstanding young men, it would be the biggest story of the century. >> sean: what does it say about the media? i agree with you. >> president trump: the media is corrupt. not all media. i know some great people including you, but i know some great journalists. look, they give pulitzer prizes to people that got it wrong okay? all these people from "the new york times," which is a fake newspaper, we don't even want to than white house anymore, going to probably terminate that in "the washington post," the fake. but you take a look at "the new york times" and you take a look at the kind of reporting they do, it turned out to be all wrong. and after the election "the new york times" apologized for their coverage because they were covering me in such a way so when i won, he actually apologized to their subscribers because they were losing
thousands and thousands of subscribers. at new york times wrote an apology, nothing else. they're saying "well it wasn't really an apology." it was, because they covered me so badly and then what i said sort of interesting. i think, i hope. said the good news is now i will be covered fairly again. and you know what happened? i got covered works. i got covered worse. but that's okay, you know -- abraham lincoln. i heard the one person used to be five or six, now it's down to 1, honest abe lincoln. if they say he got the worst press of anybody. i say i dispute it. >> sean: 's of democrats already jumped out of the plane -- can't go back. do you see a scenario where they will impeach you, there will be a trial in the senate and then the people get to speak, without be the ultimate revenge, which is your reelection as the people speak? >> president trump: everybody tells me it's going to be great for us as a republican party if they actually impeach me because the 40 seats, and there are many more than the 32 -- 40, 45 seats, where i won or did really
well were very close, those people are going to get hammered, meaning running in congress. so i don't know if that's true or not. i do say this -- and i can see it because -- i mean, look at our fund-raising. money has never come in like this. my poll numbers have been like the highest. i was in dallas the other night we set a record in a stadium. i don't know, it's got to be an arena. it's got to be 20 years old. >> sean: three layers. >> president trump: thousands of people outside watching on big screens. they've never seen anything like that and it's that way at every place. that was dallas, which we love which was great, they did a great job, great place, but if that we are in place. look at louisiana. louisiana the other night the governor was at 66, he couldn't get 50% and now you're going to have a runoff with a really great republican candidate. look at north carolina, great state, great people.
two races that were going to be lost. i went in, made a speech, let everybody know i really respect these two guys and they're going to be great. they both won. they both won. by good margins they both won. so i think the public is seeing it actually. >> sean: let me ask you, 2020 is here. use a publicly don't think joe makes it. drudge says elizabeth warren starts to lose, you got bernie mayor pete, kamala harris, then you look at their positions. top marginal tax rates, 70%. >> president trump: much higher. >> sean: 90% corporate tax rate. the new deal, 96 trillion
medicare for all, no private options. you come to running against one of those? >> president trump: i don't want to talk about it because the last time i took on elizabeth warren i feel like she was gone. embers, burning embers down -- >> sean: pocahontas. >> president trump: pocahontas. there's only one. and it's not her. so what happened -- and she rose from the ashes and i give her credit for that, but i don't like talking about it. as far as i'm concerned the green new deal, it's fine. all of its fine. paying 96% in taxes is all fine. to keep talking about it and when it's time to run, i'll run but i don't want to talk about it, it's too early to talk about. can you believe were getting down to 12 months? can you believe it? when i first went right in a corner with that beautiful building and i was in the first night with the first lady and i'm standing in an area where abe lincoln was, all of them were and that's the way it was and i'm standing there and i say, for years, that's a long time and here we are, were almost coming up, we have tremendous support. we cut taxes, we cut regulations, we have great stock markets. you know we have over 100 days -- and that's in a fairly short period of time -- much more than 100 days, when the stock market hit an all-time high and it's about to hit it again. we are doing great and we are beating everybody.
all over the world, china is not doing well. china is having the worst year they've had in 57 years. and we just made a deal for 40-$50 billion worth of agricultural products are going to be bought by china and are going to start now before we even sign the agreement, they've already started but we've done things that nobody else has done and to go through this on a perfect conversation, you're going to be impeached -- to me impeach is a very ugly word. it means a high crime and misdemeanor. that letter is a perfect conversation with a man congratulations on your win. and two impeach over a letter like that -- but they don't mention a letter anymore and they don't mention whistle-blowers and they don't mention any of these people and >> sean: let me ask you more about 2020, record low unemployment since 1969. when you ran, you said what have you got to lose when you speak to minorities. now you have a record low on employment. >> president trump: historic. >> sean: asian-americans african-americans, youth
unemployment. what is your message to minorities in 2020? your base looks strong. you see at the rallies, what do you say to the people that maybe he didn't vote you last time? >> president trump: african-american, hispanic asian american have all set records, the lowest on employment in the history of our country. not just look for 50 years, we have 51 years for the country we are going to end up topping out number. that will be historic too if we keep going the way we are doing and i think we will. a household income is so incredible. the median household income. but if you look african-american, asian american, hispanic-american. in the history of our country that the best employment numbers and they have the best employment numbers. today it was announced that we have the most people working in a history of our country, almost 160 million people. how do you beat me in a debate on those numbers? they are the best numbers. poverty numbers are the best
right now for almost all of those groups. poverty numbers, meaning a positive sense. the best numbers in the history of our country. there's another number that just came out and it came out i guess with the moody's report saying that i would won easily. the moody's report was very interesting. median household income under eight years of obama was up $975. that's eight years. under eight years of president bush, president obama 975. president bush, $400. eight years, eight years, $400 $975. me, two and a half years, it's up to $7,000. $5,000 plus $2,000 for the tax cuts that everybody got, so you have the 2002 the five. so you've got one up a thousand $975, the other is up 400 -- but
that's over eight years, each one. i'm only here to and a half years. and i beat them by many times in two and a half years. what's that percentage like proportionately? so it's up $5,000 plus two, so it's up $7,000. median household income. that's a record. there's never been anything like that. and then i say, oh, let's impeach the president. give me a break, sean. i don't think the people will stand for it. i really don't. i don't think the people will stand for it. as to whether or not it helps it might. >> sean: don't they have the last word document in the year you're running -- >> president trump: it's supposed to be high crimes and misdemeanors. a perfect conversation. >> sean: mitch mcconnell said i have to do this, six weeks on a trial, for what? without a transcript? >> president trump: i can't imagine that -- i can imagine that -- i can't imagine. i can see it being very bad for 40 or 45 people that are democrats in a district when i ran i won substantially in many cases. a won by a lot.
and i don't think those people want to see this. it's one thing if you commit a real crime. this was a conversation. it wasn't even a big deal. hey, how are you doing, blah blah, blah, this is a conversation. it was so perfect. people say it's like a perfect conversation. speak to lindsey graham, speak to all these people that have read it. impeachment is high crimes and misdemeanors. i think is a travesty for our country. they're doing such a bad thing to our country. and that's because the democrats are vicious and they stick together. for instance, when you do a censure vote on adam schiff what did he do? he made up my conversation. like fiction. it was fraudulent. he made it sound -- he took that conversation, he made it sound -- now, he didn't know about that conversation, so he went up and he made up a phony conversation, read it to congress, read it to the american people and i release that that was the real conversation. so he then said "i don't know."
>> sean: it was already out. >> president trump: it was parity, it was parity. so this is a corrupt politician. he should be impeached. and nancy pelosi should be impeached. if they not allow this. possibly going to help from the standpoint of winning election -- i don't know. they say it's going to help a lot with respect to winning the house back. but it's not the right thing. >> sean: known you for a long time. you thrive on a battle, you thrive on fighting. you said to me privately and publicly you want your promises fulfilled and that's what reelection is going to be about. all this impeach, impeach, do you care? would you care at all what they do as long as he win in november? does it matter to you? except what you said earlier about it hurts the country. >> president trump: look we've done a great job, the economy is the best it's ever been. ever been. and you look, again, china has gone way down. hillary clinton had gotten
elected, right now china would have the number one economy in the world and right now they're not even close. they're way behind. we picked up trillions of dollars worth and value in china has gone way, way down by trillions and trillions of dollars. when the head of china spoke to me recently and even the vice-premier just left, just left this office right here last week, he said congratulations mr. president on the incredible job. he said we would never have expected this to happen. don't forget, china is paying us tens of billions of dollars now in tariffs and it's had a huge impact on china and it hasn't cost us anything, because they devalue their currency and they poured money and it hasn't cost us -- they've eaten that. they've eaten it totally. but he said congratulations on the job you've done with the economy. had hillary clinton got in right now we would be the number two economy in the world. we are so far in front of china that we have smart people sitting right in that chair right next to us, it will never
you came back! ♪ >> live from america's headquarters, i'm aishah hasnie president trump making a surprise visit to afghanistan the president dined on a traditional thanksgiving meal with the troops. a brief meeting with afghanistan 's president was also held on the agenda. he disclosed the u.s. is once again holding peace talks with attala band the in the meantime, another 40
antigovernment protesters were killed by security forces over the past 24 hours there. some of those deaths following the burning of an iranian consulate building. at least 350 people have been killed since the first of october when demonstrators took to the streets to protest the corruption. now back to hannity. ♪ >> sean: i recently had a chance to sit down with the former u.s. ambassador to the u.n., former governor of the great state of south carolina nikki haley, to talk about her new book, "with all due respect." take a look. >> sean: how are you new mexico good to see you. >> sean: because all of these books are short, you do give a great life story that i really want people to read. i don't know a lot about you.
i found out things about you that i found quite inspiring actually end your rise to be the governor of south carolina. then u.n. ambassador. what has gotten a lot of people's attention is the conversation about an hour rex tillerson, general kelly. and i guess tell that story and out of it, i was wondering why did you not to feel -- or did you at any point feel a need to tell the president, hey, this is what these guys are doing? >> well, i did tell the president. keep in mind, sean, this is one page at a 250 pages of the book. but i did tell the president and i did tell the national security advisor, h.r. mcmaster and there were others that knew of my concerns in the process and let's keep in mind, what i have said is this wasn't that these guys thought this was a rogue president. this was that these guys disagreed with his policy. they disagreed with us getting out of the paris climate agreement. they disagreed with us getting out of the iran deal. if they disagreed moving the embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem, so when the president was charting a different course and really giving us a strong
hand for american and for our friends, they just thought that he was going in the wrong direction, so when they sat me down that day, they were attempting to tell me that if i would work with them, they were trying to save america and keep people from dying, but we saw when the embassy moved from tel aviv to jerusalem, the sky is still up there. it didn't fall and we didn't see casualties. what we saw was a courageous moment by the president that many presidents have tried before that was very successful and it acknowledged a fact which jerusalem is the capital of israel. >> sean: let me -- you know it's very interesting as i look at your relationship with the president and on one hand it seems great, trump and i understood each other. you talk about how much freedom he gave you to do his job and what his mandate was in his governing style was one that you liked. when you were first asked about the impeachment issue, you said that's like the death penalty for a public official, but you
commented you didn't think it was a good practice to ask a foreign country to investigate an american, period. i want to take a little issue with that part because i read this transcript, america has read this transcript and we have -- the president has an oath to faithfully execute the laws of the land. ukrainian court said ukraine interfered on our 2016 elections. the president is asking can you get to the bottom of it. we also have joe biden on tape basically bragging about well, a quid pro quo. if you fire the guy, you get a billion dollars coming up six hours, a guy that he knew was investigating his son. to me, that sounds like a crime. what does it sound like to you? >> well, i've said before, if you look at the transcript, it's very clear that the president wasn't demanding that this be done. the ukrainians didn't do the investigation. the president released the aid as he should. i in practice don't think it's good for us to ever ask foreign governments to investigate americans, but i think it goes
to the fact that americans should be investigating americans and americans should be asking the questions of joe biden and asking the questions of his son and finding out exactly what was going on with that situation and get down to the bottom of it. there've been a lot of investigations that have been very one-sided against the president, and they haven't been looking at the other side, which is all of the other issues, and whether it was the russian situation, i'd like for them to go back and say what was president obama's role in that situation in the fact that all of that stuff happened, and this situation, what was joe biden's role in what was hunter biden's role in that process as well? so there's a lot of questions that need to be asked. >> sean: as you look at the dash as we now had into this 2020 election and you -- you know, you talked about a lot your relationship, seems like mostly you had a good relationship with the president when he worked for him and to
look at the democratic candidates and you talk about trump the disruptor but yet he always listened to you and you would tell him how you felt, but that's the person i've known for over 25 years. do you think that the president is misunderstood? >> i do think is misunderstood. i can tell you from the first day to the first day from the last day that it worked for the president come he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues and then he made his decision. he is a disruptor and this is the time in our country where we needed a disruptor. but there wasn't a time where i called him and said, look, i think we should look at this another way for he didn't say how do you see that playing out and we had a great discussion over it. i still consider him a friend today and i will tell you that that's what's been so hard, as i think they've been trying to impeach him since the second he was inaugurated, and i think that if you look at the results of what this president has done you're seeing record unemployment, you're seeing an economy that's booming, look at the stock market from last week. what you're seeing real hard decisions that were made.
getting out of the iran deal moving the embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem. getting us out of the paris climate agreement, which was an unfair situation. getting actually kim in north korea to come to the negotiating table. there've been some really tough courageous stands that have been made and in all scenarios i saw a president was very thoughtful looked at all of the issues made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with them and i will tell you that it's not what people portray. this was someone that the reason we got along so well is because i told him the truth. and he was always willing to listen to that. i think it's too bad that a lot of people don't want to see that what you see on tv is what you get, what you see behind the scenes as someone who really cares about america and wants to do everything he can to strengthen it. if you when you know it's funny because disruptor i guess in today's language for a politician means actually keeping our promises, which i think will be a big part of his reelection campaign. congratulations on the book

>> you said roman polanski -- it wasn't rape rape when he raped a child. >> sean: joining us now, he's in birmingham tonight, the president's son, executive vice president of the trump organization. donald trump jr., you got to tell everybody hannity says hello. >> donald: hannity says hello guys. how is it going, sean? >> sean: so i'm watching this thing today and i'm like, why? why did you even bother? why? speak to you know what, every once in a while you've got to try, you got to try to speak to everyone. hopefully they listen. in that case they didn't because they think if you're invited on the show and a build it up and they're giving you three segments, you think if you were there to promote a book, they'd ask you one question about the actual book, sean, but they didn't do that, but i guess it's a little bit about why i wrote "triggered." i think the title speaks for itself because they were obviously triggered.
i don't think they like me much anymore. >> sean: i used to do all of those stupid shows. i think the last time i went on that show, rosie o'donnell was hosting it and lost her mind and poor barbara walters couldn't control the chaos. you know, but the reality is look at this whole media thing. okay. there's a quid pro quo -- there's no quid pro quo. your father is faithfully executing the laws, but there was a quid pro quo and that's joe, who knew his son was being investigated. you fire the prosecutor, you get a billion -- you don't fire the prosecutor you don't get a billion. would -- quid pro quo, don. >> donald, jr.: and he's on tape in front of everybody saying it that way. there is no ambiguity, there's no nothing. he was in control of it. hunter biden is getting boards and languages he can't speak -- why are you there, hunter? i never really thought about that. i know why you're there. i think everyone in america knows why you're there.
so we are having a good time here, doing a little bit of a triggered tour but got dumb i glad we could get these guys in there because i think they're all in agreement with us. >> sean: by the way, i started -- 90 miles north of birmingham i was broadcasting in huntsville, alabama. had a great two years there in the newspaper wrote an editorial when i left, goodbye to the talk show host from hell. i was very proud of that. but i will say this -- >> donald, jr.: that sounds like my average day, sean. >> sean: i think were in the same boat. the thing is if the kid were in a maga hat results in what they did to nicholas sandmann and the lies, breath management, libel slander, the smears, i don't think there's any low they won't -- i think the next 362 days is going to be a war every day to destroy you, your family your dad, with lies, because they've been lying now for three years. >> donald, jr.: well, that's exactly right.
you saw what happened to me yesterday, i literally retweeted an article with the name of the supposed whistle-blower in the title of the article and there's outrage. donald jr. outs whistle-blower! like it was on drudge four days ago. it's an real clear politics, it was in breitbart. was in a couple other place -- and i'm like -- he's in danger of his life. i'm like this is a cia operator in danger of his life. i wish they would have shown a little bit of the same amount of outrage when my family opened up a white powder substance and an exporting envelope that showed up at my house. these guys are full of it, sean. and the thing is, they are not outraged that he was outed there outrage that now that his name is out there, everyone's able to realize this is a guy that's tied to brennan. this is a guy that's tied to susan rice. this is a guy that works for biden with ukraine nonsense and this is a guy whose lawyer has been tweeting since january '17 the coup has started. impeachment is next, we are going to trump out of there. this is just a joke and they
realized they got caught in the act again because they wanted this innocent public servant whistle-blower whose doing the right thing instead of just another one of the coup cabal of those clowns that have been doing this for three years in the reality is, the american public gets it, sean. they see through this nonsense. they're sick of it, as i am, and they should be, because of its going on here in america, in 2019 we should all be ashamed of ourselves and they're trying to overthrow a duly elected president because they didn't get the results that they wanted and they want to promote their socialist leftist policies and that's the only thing that matters. that's disgusting. if this was going on in a banana republic would be outraged. it's going on here in america right now. >> sean: and when we come back, lawrence jones and his interview with kanye west. to stay with us as the special edition of "hannity" continues. ♪ edition of "hannity" continues
