john dickerson was invited into the white house this weekend for a wide-ranging interview with president trump. the sit-down came on mr. trump's 100th day in office. >> reporter: i want to ask you a question about the presidency. george w. bush said this. he said you think one thing going in. and then the pressures of the job or the realities of the world are different than you thought. do you agree? >> i think i can agree. i love doing it. i'm thoroughly enjoying it. it's always a challenge, like life itself is a challenge. but it's something that i really love, and i think i've done a very good job at it. >> you said in ain't view with reuters that you thought it would be easier, why? >> it's a tough job, but i've had a lot of tough jobs.
i've had things that were tougher. although i'll let you know that better at the end of eight years, perhaps eight years, hopefully eight years, but i'll let you know later on. i think we've done very well with foreign policy. i think we've done very, very well with relationships with other leaders. i think we're doing great on trade deals. it's set and we're doing well. our country's being outtraded at every single point. we're losing tremendous amounts of money on trade. and actually, i've been very consistent. you know, it's very funny when the fake media goes out which we call the mainstream media, which sometimes is you. >> you mean me personally? >> i call your show "deface the nation". but sometimes your show is not exact lay correc exactly correct. but i called china a currency
manipulator early on. and then they stopped. it's not going down anymore, their currency. >> but that had been true during the campaign. >> no, not true to the extent that we're talking about. but much more important than that as to when. it did stop. i was talking about it during the campaign, and i would say i was the one who got them to stop. >> you were the one who got china to stop? >> i talked about during the campaign -- they were doing it before. there's no question. they were absolute currency manipulators manipulators before, but somebody said oh, you didn't call them a currency manipulator. i believe that president xi is working to try and resolve a very big problem for china also. and that's north korea. can you imagine if i said, hey, by the way, how are you doing with north korea, also, we're going to announce that you're a currency manipulator tomorrow. so the mainstream media never talks about that. they never say that. it's just one of many things, john. >> you're a negotiator. if you need something from somebody, you need china to help
you with north korea, doesn't that send a message to china, we're not going to bug you about human rights, about intellectual prortd. we're not going to put too much heat on you. aren't you breaking one of your own negotiating rules? >> no, i think frankly, maybe north korea is more important than trade. trade is very important. but massive warfare with millions, potentially millions of people being killed? that, as we would say, trumps trade. >> let me ask you -- >> you understand what i'm saying, and if i can use trade as a method to get china, because i happen to think that china does have reasonably good powers over, over north korea. now maybe not, you know, ultimate, but pretty good powers. now if china can help us with north korea and can solve their problem, that's worth making not as good a trade deal for the united states, excuse me, right? >> what do you know now on day 100 that you wish you knew on day one of the presidency?
>> well, one of the things i've learned is how dishonest the media is, really. i've done things that i think are very good. i've so i've done, i've set great foundations with foreign leaders. we have, nafta, you know, i was going to terminate it. but i got a very nice call from a man i like, the president of mexico. i got a very nice call from justin trudeau, the prime minister of canada, and they said, please, would you, rather than terminating nafta, i was all set to do it. as a matter of fact i was going to do it today. as i was sitting here i was going to have to delay you. i was going to terminate nafta, but they called up, and they said would you negotiate? and i said yes, i will negotiate. >> that's all you've learned about the media. you knew from the campaign about the media. >> the media didn't cover it that way. you look at my statements. i said if i'm not able to renegotiate nafta, i will terminate nafta. i'll make that statement right
now, if i'm not able to renegotiate nafta, we will terminate nafta. >> let's step back a minute. presidents have to learn to adapt. every president comes into the job and it's different and they have to adapt. you've learned something else, surely than that the media is dishonest. >> it was one of my disappointments. >> all presidents have to adapt and change. >> i think things tend to go an a little slower than you'd like them to go. >> why? >> it's just a system. a very, very bureaucratic system. i think the rules in congress and in particular the rules in the senate are unbelievably archaic. and slow-moving. and in many cases, unfair. in many cases, you're forced to make deals that are not the deal you'd make, you'd make a much different kind of a deal, you're forced into situations that you hate to be forced into. i also learned and this is very sad, because we have a country that we have to take care of. the democrats have been totally
obstructionist. chuck schumer has turned out to be a bad leader. he's a bad leader for the country, and the democrats are extremely obstructionist. all they do is on trukt, all they do is delay, even our supreme court justice, as you know who i think is going to be outstanding, justice gorsuch. i think that it was disgraceful the way they handled that, but, you know, i still have people, i'm waiting for them to be approved. our chief trade negotiator. we can't get these people through. they are obstructists, and you know what that's hurting? that's hurting the country. >> let me ask you about your tax returns. when your treasury secretary was asked if you were going to release them, mr. mnuchin says the president has no intention. >> he's never asked me about it. i said number one, i'm under audit. right now i'm under audit. after the audit is complete, it's a routine audit. but i have a very big tax return. you've seen the pictures.
my tax return is probably higher than that from the floor. when you look at other people's tax return, even other wealthy people, it's this high. my tax return is this high. i'm under ryu tooutine audit. i have been under audit almost like since i became famous, okay? not just political. i have friends who are wealthy people. they've never been audited. he thi i think it's very unfair. >> you said were you under audit and that was about 14 months ago. when do you think this may happen? >> i think it's pretty routine, to be honest with you. then i'll make a decision. >> a member of congress suggest thad a condition for getting tax reform would be releasing your tax returns, what do you think about that? >> i don't know who did that. i don't care who did that. these are the people, the great obstructionists. look where the democrats have ended up. again, they had everything
