tv   Washington This Week  CSPAN  August 15, 2015 2:00pm-3:01pm EDT

2:00 pm
i've been at the federal level. i've been at the state level. there is not a lot of learning curve when you spent a lot of years at the lower level. there is not a lot of learning curve if you spent a lot of years in the united states senate. that is important for our next president. there is not a lot of learning curve there. so the vision for the future is the third part. your record, your character, as i said, being honest and ethical, and when i was on the senate, i served on the senate for lit -- foreign relations committee. i chaired the western hemisphere subcommittee. so i travel through the hemisphere, all of the countries in south america, almost all of the countries in south america. i met with fidel castro in
2:01 pm
havana, i met with hugo chavez in venezuela, and i met with all the leaders. and then i became chairman of the middle east subcommittee. i have been to israel, i have been to jordan, i have been to afghanistan, i have been to egypt, i have been to lebanon. i have met with many leaders in the middle east. after the mistakes that we made with invading iraq, i felt it was my response ability, my responsibility -- my responsibility, my response ability to fix it. a couple of days ago, jeb bush was saying, in 2009, it was mission accomplished, iraq was a secure place. he is drinking some kind of neocon kool-aid to think that iraq is secure. we just cannot have those people come back and come back and make
2:02 pm
the same kinds of mistakes. they are delusional if they think that iraq was secure. jeb bush was saying mission accomplished. it is delusional. just like they were saying saddam hussein had dubya mds -- wmd's, it was not truth. what i want to do is work hard to end these wars. and these wars that have been going on too long. we need to get in there just like president obama is doing with the iran nuclear deal. togethereed to work and work with the iranians to put this together, yes we can work with the chinese to put this together. that is what we did with the iranian nuclear deal. all of the republicans were opposed to it and we cannot break up the middle east are the future generations to create more problems. so those are the reasons i am running, first of all, my
2:03 pm
record, second of all, all through my public career, all three decades, i never had any scandals. the highest ethical standards. you will never see any kind of ethical scandals or any kind of issues. time and timees again, especially the iraq vote under enormous pressure. i have a backbone. i don't supply up. -- i don't flip-flop. that is my character. that is my vision for the future , let's and these wars and bring these resources homes for our schools and for around iowa and four around the country. d the country.un it is going to take resources and thosealth care, wars, bring those resources home. prosperity does come with peace. it is always what happens. if you get peace, you will have prosperity. so thank you very much for
2:04 pm
coming to iowa. to the fair, enjoy the fair. a big decision we have in 2016. be a of all, it's got to democrat, second of all, it's got to be lincoln chafee. thank you. [applause] fmr. gov. chafee: does anybody have a question? someone and back in red with the buttons that say vote? that is a good thing, please vote. >> [indiscernible] fmr. gov. chafee: access to the ballot? or security? >> [indiscernible] fmr. gov. chafee: they are both important, they are both important. you have to have access on it that is very important, you need to make sure that everybody can vote. don't have very years to broken -- don't have barriers to vote in.
2:05 pm
as publicays striving officials to have both of those. i know i have in my almost 30 years of public career. make sure that you count the vote properly. yes ma'am? what are you going to do about the influence that money has in politics? fmr. gov. chafee: good question. the question is, what are my going to do about the influence that money has in politics, and i run a low-budget campaign. are we going to have the next president who is all about money or are we going to have some of you like lincoln chafee who has the character and has the vision -- visionarily have but not necessarily have the money. you decide if it is all about the money. what can we do beyond that?
2:06 pm
certainly i voted for mccain feingold when i was in the senate, which was a campaign-finance reform. but the supreme court struck down parts of mccain-feingold, so there are legal issues on your first amendment rights to how much you can spend, how much the wealthy can spend, of their own money. want tonly don't appoint any supreme court justices who want to bend that and keep bending that for the wealthy. [applause] fmr. gov. chafee: this country is getting upside down with the money coming -- i believe in the people. i believe in the people. no, we are not just going to go with the billionaire candidates. stand up.ople, we are not just going to let them tell us how to vote with their deluge of money. yes sir? what are your plans for a reliable and affordable power for rural america? fmr. gov. chafee: my plans for a reliable and affordable power
2:07 pm
ton for rural america is cover six states that is smaller than iowa, and to find out how reliable,e -- safe, affordable power. there were 11 of us and we came up with a packed to get hydropower down from quebec near labrador. wanted clean, reliable, affordable, just what you are talking about. that is what is good for the rule parts of america. there has got to be more of this in the discussion. we hear about wind and solar and geothermal, but we have got to access some of this hydropower. it is reliable, the rivers flow itn hill every day, and is clean, and that is what we want. northeast can the be the green, low-cost, energy
2:08 pm
capital of north america. that is how important hydropower can be to the mix of cleanm reliable -- clean, reliable hydropower. yes, sir? >> [indiscernible] fmr. gov. chafee: the question is, how could i dismiss the yellowcake uranium that materialized? that question shows that it wasn't accurate, no, no, i went to the cia, and listen to this, i asked them, show me all of the evidence you have, i have to vote on this in three weeks. all of the analysts laid out what they had. there wasn't anything. i was there for one hour. there was just no evidence of weapons of mass destruction. that is the fact. that is the truth. there are some big called the downing street memo that came back that said that the brits were saying that there was no evidence of weapons of mass
2:09 pm
destruction, it was another reason, but there were no weapons of mass distraction. it was a huge mistake and now we have to fix it. i am glad i am not the one that drank the kool-aid. yes? do you agree or disagree with to provide internet service under government control? fmr. gov. chafee: that is a technical question about the sec fcc to provide internet service and i will have to catch up with that. i promise. i would like to have a good solid answer. as i said, i am not a flip flopper. i would like to give a good, solid answer. i will get back to you on that. yes? >> [indiscernible] fmr. gov. chafee: and wage stagnation? like i said, with those tax
2:10 pm
cuts, we were doing great with policies, and then bush and cheney came along and they gave tax cuts to the wealthy. how did they get away with that? they also brought back deficits that then created the economy. this cascading sequence of mistakes. i was not buying it. what could be more popular for a politician than to vote for tax cuts? that is the most popular thing a politician can do. i thought it was more important for the future generations to keep the economy chugging along, let the wealthy pay their fair share. i voted against every single bush cheney tax cut. i care about surpluses and i don't like wage stagnation. we are back in repair mode, raging the minimum wage -- raising the minimum wage is certainly a part of it. all of these things we have to do to repair the mistakes that were made by the republicans and
2:11 pm
bush and cheney. yes, sir? >> [indiscernible] fmr. gov. chafee: how would i pick the supreme court justice? that is why this election is so .mportant in 2016 just think about the consequence is, whether it is the environment or these wars overseas, but probably at the top of the list is the appointment to the supreme court because they are lifetime appointments. the strategy has been, i was there for two of them in the senate, and i voted for sam alito and roberts was the other one, but -- i voted against sam alito and roberts was the other one, but i voted against sam alito because he is against women's reproductive rights and other things. the strategy i said, you get these young justices, they are there for a lifetime. get them as young as possible, that is the strategy.
2:12 pm
so they are there for a long time. it is important for the future of our country. so if we look at who we are going to vote for as president, that is going to be at the top of my list. i talk about what type of people i have surrounded myself with over the years and you can totally- you can be confident that i would make good appointments to the supreme court, you can be totally confident about that, making good decisions for the upcoming decades. yes, ma'am? the jail system we have in this country, and -- the debt system we have in this country, and it is not the deficit, it is the debt, and it is just getting out of hand. bush tax cuts are still the reason. what can we americans do to get the debts down? i am a baby boomer, we are going to be retiring soon, and these kids can't just pay this. fmr. gov. chafee: everyone here
2:13 pm
that question? deficits and the the retiring baby boomers, which i am also. how are we going to pay for it? to pay for usng baby boomers and how are we going to keep social security and medicare and all of these important programs going? i would like to go back a little bit and talk about the big tax cut and the trillions of dollars spent in the war and i don't how much it is going to cost us, maybe 6 million -- $6 trillion over the next couple of years? against the old republican viewpoint of taking care of the books and let people live as they see fit, the old eisenhower approach. it is about for you back deficits now and how are we going to fix this? i would say again, look at my record. i have been a mayor, i had to balance budgets, at the same time, give the people the services that they want.
2:14 pm
my time as governor of rhode island, we had tuition free schooling at our colleges because we put the money in. so you have to do both, run an efficient organization so you can put the resources where they are most needed, and keep taxes down. that is not different from a business. people in business. and i enjoy it, to be honest, and i like the challenge. i want to have good services. i want to keep those taxes down. i enjoy that dynamic of doing both. i think i'm getting -- oh, thank you! thank you! [laughter] [applause] >> thank you very much. that is democrat lincoln chafee at the iowa state fair a little bit earlier today. at 3:00anders is there today eastern time, and we will have that for you live here on c-span as the road to the right -- the white house continues.

announcer: hillary clinton and the meet and greet at the iowa state fair today. mrs. clinton has wrapped up her day at the iowa state fair as "andan see in this tweet, that's a wrap. hillary clinton's day at the fair, over." you can see her car is pulling away and hillary clinton was at the fair today and donald trump was at the fair today and others as our coverage continues. hillary clinton is a scheduled to go to martha's vineyard to join president obama with his and -- with him and his family on vacation. they are playing golf. here is a look at him on friday plane with basketball player curry and -- steph again, the white house is reporting that his partners
2:27 pm
today is former president bill clinton. . president obama while up a putt there golfing at martha's vineyard. on the coverage from iowa, we will continue with bernie sanders on the soapbox. "the des moines register's says bernie sanders will be there and we will have his remarks and his opportunity to get some q&a with the public. earlier today, governor rick santorum was on the soapbox at the iowa state fair. while we wait for bernie sanders coming up at at 3:00, we will show you rick santorum from earlier.
2:28 pm
[applause] santorum: thank you. thank you very much. i apologize for being a few minutes late, but i was at a conference and we are going to fight planned parenthood. [applause] gov. santorum: i was very, very proud to be the only presidential candidate to talk about how we have to defund planned parenthood. we have to talk about the reality of what planned parenthood is about. and ive seen those videos know this because i wrote the law, but planned parenthood as it was described by those doctors in those videos provides abortions. are harvesting the babies' organs for research and other
2:29 pm
nefarious things. planned parenthood needs to be defunded. planned parenthood is breaking the law, the federal law, and it needs to be prosecuted under federal law. [applause] gov. santorum: you're asking why because i am village person in washington, d.c. who can get things done. provided leadership on the issue of life, on the issue of marriage. i want to talk about the partial-birth abortion statute, and it is very important and i care about it a lot. that ineme court says nebraska, partial-birth abortion was unconstitutional. most people, when they have an important decision that is theyst what they believe do what most presidential candidates do when they are
2:30 pm
confronted with the issue, and passes asupreme court law in an unconstitutional way, it is not the law of the land and the rest of us have to move on. we also need to stand up and fight. [applause] gov. santorum: and i did. we passed a law in direct contradiction to the supreme court ruling. and in that law, we laid out chapter and verse why it was wrong. many people say that the supreme court is the supreme court of the government. member,ate and a house i pledged to uphold the constitution of the united states.
2:31 pm
congressman, every senator, every president has an obligation to be faithful to the constitution. congress and the president cannot change the law and it is determined upon the courts to put them back in place. when the supreme court gets it wrong, it is incumbent upon the president and congress to make things right. the supreme court backed down and that is why partial-birth is illegal today. [applause] gov. santorum: we need leadership on other issues. we are at a point in time in our country where four years ago when i was standing on this stage, we see what is happening threatshe world that are rising against america, not just from iran but from china and russia and even from central and south america. this president has turned a blind eye to deliberately powerful enemies.
2:32 pm
notas empowered russia by holding up to her trees with ukraine. he has empowered syria. he has empowered iran. he has empowered isis. he has empowered china. our enemieskind to and very harsh to our allies. we need a leader who will stand for the principles of our government and for our own national security. we need one who will stand with our allies to make sure that our interests are defended. race has thes record that i do on national security. just about three months ago, and itblished a magazine comes out on a monthly basis, i am told. so for three months, my picture was in their magazine. and it was under the headline, "in the words of our enemy." i laid out who our enemies are
2:33 pm
and i have put it out very clearly as i have in speeches why and how isis can be defeated. i was put on an isis enemy list. nobody else in this race is on unfortunately, neither is hillary clinton. why am i on that list? because after 9/11, i have spent the time needed to understand. to crush them and i was the author of those laws that would crush them 10 years ago. i fought for those sanctions and yet who fought against them? joe biden, hillary clinton, barack obama. i thought to keep those sanctions in place. 2 -- [applause] we need a leader
2:34 pm
who can do, who is going to stand up to defeat isis. how do we contain isis? we stop recruitment here in america as well as around the world to join the jihad. we must take back their land, we must destroyed or states, and if we do not, the incidences that you are hearing about, they will accelerate. they are accelerating. i will take the threat seriously. i will make sure that isis isn't spending their money on recruitment, they will be spending their money on body bags, because that is what will happen if you elect me as president. i will defeat isis. [applause] gov. santorum: you need a leader who is going to stand up for the men and women in this country who have been left behind. fromw for a fact before
2:35 pm
western pennsylvania. because wei did is have seen a continuation for the state of living for the people of america. sometimes, unless they have an accurate description of the problem, they don't have an accurate conclusion. but that doesn't mean that they aren't observing what israel. what is real is a that americans are losing hope. wages are flat. americans93 million were no longer in the workplace. havel ensure that people employment and that they will not sit on the sidelines that there is no hope that they cannot come back into the workforce. i will give you more money and
2:36 pm
we will stop pay for medicaid and all of these things. you don't want more government handouts. you want the opportunity to be able to rise to work and provide for yourself and your family, and unfortunately, the republican party has been sort of empty in that regard. we talk about capital gains and we talk about cutting taxes, but i have a vision for america. it is about flat tax of income and corporate income. [applause] gov. santorum: we are going to change the internal revenue code and make change and give americans a fair shot. [applause] gov. santorum: we are going to prove that the economy can i'm going to make sure that i get things done because i have a track record for that in washington, d.c..
2:37 pm
i know how to work with people and get things done. we ended federal entitlements. why question mark -- why? because i wanted to get people back to work and provide incentives for people to be able to provide again in society. and guess what they did? bill clinton beat that bill twice. no, i am not, going to give up. we are going to work to get things done because people in this country need it. and ladies and gentlemen, if we just -- [indiscernible] but that is not what happened. at its lowest level ever measured in the united states of america. [applause] you give me the opportunity to go out there with say that america
2:38 pm
is going to be the number one manufacturing country in the world again. americao that here in if we have a tax code, a environmentnd policy that makes us competitive with the rest of the world. the ideapeople talk up of beating these people or winning this are winning that. i have a plan. an actual plan that will put us back on top. every american will have the opportunity to rise. -- you are going to be creating jobs for americans of all levels and skill sets will rise. we were once a country that had manufacturing of production. ec that here in iowa your
2:39 pm
agricultural -- iowa. economy tookural off. we need to have that happen in states, and other etc. we have to do this in ohio and michigan and indiana. why? because we are talking about people who are hurting in those states. we are talking about people who have been suffering in the rust belt for the last three years. i come from the rust belt. my grandfather was a coal miner. my other grandfather was an immigrant to this country. they fought for working men and women. they've offer reforms and other kinds of things that would get people to rise. they were against trade bills
2:40 pm
like it now -- trade bills like nafta, like i did. [indiscernible] the speaker of the house and the chairman of the ways and means committees [indiscernible] want someone who can shape things up and get things done and move this country in a way is just --ountry just -- just anxious for. you need someone to lead us. we need the american people to get their pride back again. we need the opportunity to make things and to produce things and to and make not just our country safer but the rest of the world safer. ladies and gentlemen, you can give me that opportunity in iowa. four years ago, you gave me that opportunity. by the way, four years ago there was a poll out today and i was at 1% in the polls.
2:41 pm
two weeks before the iowa caucus, i was at 2%. but the people of iowa, you did your jobs. you looked at all the candidates and you shuffled through all of the rhetoric. you look at who actually has accomplished something, has a vision for this country, and can make a difference. -- difference in moving america forward. you are looking for someone who can make america strong and who can stand up and make this country great and who can bring people to jobs back at all levels in our society. you want some of the who can get things levels to done, i know, because i have done it. i only have to ask one thing. winner onlare me the caucus night. [applause] gov. santorum: you stand with me. you got it right last time. i know, because the other people
2:42 pm
didn't get it right. they didn't win. you give us the opportunity to make the case of america being the great country and led by someone who is out there fighting. latest in july, we can have not for thereat victory republicans and the conservatives, but more importantly, we could have a great victory for america again and you can make people feel good about this country again. thank you. thank you very much. god bless the united of america and god bless iowa. governor rick santorum who won the iowa caucus for years ago at the iowa state fair. at that same "des moines register" soapbox, coming up just under 20 minutes from now during east coast time, remarks by senator bernie sanders, the independent senator from vermont

[cheering] donald trump: who wants to take a ride?
2:47 pm
you can go up, you can go down, who wants to go first? we are going to have some fun. are your parents out there? wave to your parents. they're going to have a great time. it is a great experience. can you believe this? i look forward to it, actually. >> [indiscernible] donald trump: i have no expectations. i just hope they're innocent, whoever it is. i did hope they are innocent. >> [indiscernible] she's got a lot of problems with the e-mail situation. if you look at general perjurious, he -- general just a tiny has fraction of what she is going through, and they made his life hell. well, how are you? nice seeing you, martha. you are innocent until proven
2:48 pm
guilty, but certainly it would look that way. it looks very serious as far as hillary is concerned. i hope that is not what happens to her, but certainly, the facts aren't looking good right now. if you look at general petronius, what he went through on a much smaller level, i think it is going to be very tough for her. yes? >> can you tell us under what circumstances you would use nuclear weapons? donald trump: i don't even want to talk about that question. that is a very serious question. hopefully you would never have to use a nuclear question. hopefully. but look, we have to be prepared permit the world hates us like they have never hated us before, and we have to build up our military and take care of our vets and we have to have the finest armaments and the finest military than any other country in the world by you actor -- world by a factor of 10. we have to be so strong and so smart that nobody would ever mess with us. >> mr. trump, what would you say
2:49 pm
to hillary clinton if you ran into her at the iowa state fair? donald trump: i would say hello. >> [indiscernible] donald trump: say again? >> [indiscernible] being trump: well, we are ripped off by anybody in the world, china, mexico, and mexico is sort of becoming the new china in terms of trade. , nabisco is moving to mexico. i mean, give me a break. so we have to reverse that. we need jobs in our country. we are better than other countries and we are going to take jobs back from china and japan and we are going to make our country great again and that to me, that is the challenge. it is not going to be that difficult. i spoke to carl icon, he is a great negotiator -- carl great he is a negotiator, and he will work with me. we are a great country and we
2:50 pm
will come out on top every single time. and that is what we need. thank you. [applause] >> you talked about jeb bush being a puppet -- donald trump: well, jeb bush is a puppet to his donors. i know this. he's got lobbyists. he'd try to make this statement the other day and he said, skin in the game. he said, the united states has to prove to iraq that we have skin in the game. we spent $2 trillion, thousands , wounded warriors whom i love all over the place, and he said we have to prove that we have skin in the game. i think that may have been one of the dumbest things of that i have ever heard. skin in the game? we don't have anything to prove. iraqis are a bunch of crooks. iran is taking over iraq. and i understand psychology, i
2:51 pm
think his brother probably said, hey, i think you are killing me, that was his war and he looks very bad. so jeb bush tried to push back, and when he said, we have to prove to iraq that we have skin in the game, and we have lost all of those lives and all of that money, i think he should apologize to the families of the people. >> the second part of the question is, is your critique of him being a puppet, do you admit that you are essentially a puppeteer controlling -- now i am ap: but different side. i know how the system works better than everybody. >> [indiscernible] donald trump: many of the people are part of the game, to hillary, to jeb, to everybody else, people don't like them because they like the color of his hair, believe me. these are highly sophisticated killers. if they get $5 million or $2 million or $1 million to jeb, they will act just like a puppet. what ever they want, he is there
2:52 pm
puppet. believe me. yesterday, i had a lobbyist, hip, he is a friend of mine, good guy, smart as hell. he works for his clients. i don't blame him. he said, donald, i want to put $590 into your campaign. i said i don't need it. and he said, no, i want to give it. want it.o, i don't because if you want to come back in two years and you want me to help a country or a company that you represent, i want to do the right thing for the people of the united states and i don't want to insult you. i appreciate it, but i don't what your money. i am turning down so much money. i don't want to feel obligated. all of them, i am not just talking about jeb bush, but hillary, too. but believe me, i have played the game, nobody has played the game better than i did. i have been on both sides and i know how the game works. >> [indiscernible] will berump: nobody
2:53 pm
able to do the job the way that i can do it. i will strengthen our military and i will take care of our vets and i will get rid of obamacare, by the way, which is a catastrophe. [applause] donald trump: look at what is happening, the cost of your insurance is going through the roof. look at what is happening. it is terrible. i will take care of people. and i will be better to women. and that is another thing, i heard from jeb, women's health issues. he didn't want to fund it. then he went back to were three hours later and he said he misspoke. he misspoke. good to women. i will cherish women. women haven't been taking care of property -- care of properly. says, hecomes back and changes his mind, because his pollsters said that he misspoke. another question? >> [indiscernible] next few weeks? will comemp: well, it
2:54 pm
out tomorrow, i just put it out and it will come out tomorrow on aeet the press" that i have new policy, and it will come up tomorrow, but i have a new tax system and who knows taxes better than me? so we're putting them out one by one. and i think that you will see that it is very important. yes? and they you for all of your nice words, by the way -- thanks you for all of your nice words, by the way. >> -- donald trump: when you put a policy like a 14 point plan, a lot of times, in the first hour of negotiations, that 14 point plan goes astray, but you might end up with a better deal, so that's how it works. when i do a deal, i don't say here is 14 points. i go out and do it. i don't sit down and talk about 40 points. that i know the press wants it. i don't think people care.
2:55 pm
trust me. that is what it is all about. >> [indiscernible] donald trump: i have been getting politicians to pass everything that i want. all of my life. nobody has more experience dealing with policy issues than me. i have been dealing with them all my life, whether it is a new york city zoning deals -- and by the way, these are probably tougher than the things that i would be dealing with in dealing with foreign countries -- i have worked on getting things out on the west side of manhattan, anything sold for the trump tower. beene tell you, i have dealing with politicians all my life. they are fine, there are wonderful, they are all talk and no action, they are selling this country down the tube. >> why do you think voters don't care about policy? >> why are you speaking at the iowa caucus? are you afraid -- donald trump: no, because that paper in my opinion was not relevant to me.
2:56 pm
just not relevant. and i notice a number of other people are speaking. no, the paper is not relevant. >> four years ago -- donald trump: yes, i am taking questions right now. she just asked, if i am going to take questions from reporters. what am i doing? am i taking questions from reporters? this shows i am taking questions from reporters. [applause] donald trump: by the way, unlike hillary, unlike hillary, do we agree? yes? >> [indiscernible] donald trump: i hadn't heard that. well, i guess that is a compliment in many ways. yes, go ahead. >> [indiscernible] protecting the border and enforcing the laws that we are a have. -- that we already have. donald trump: you are going to love me. we are building a wall. nobody is going through my wall. truck built walls. -- trump builds walls.
2:57 pm
it is going to be strong and it is going to be long and is going to be policed. to fly a dronee over it and nobody can go under, nobody is going over it, and you know what? we are going to have a big door for people to come and legally. we are good have a big, beautiful door for people to come in legally. i will want people to come and legally, but they will have to legally, butme in they will have to do it legally. >> can you imagine yourself -- donald trump: i think even better, i think it even better. i think foreign leaders -- i have had great relationships with foreign leaders over the years. i think even better. i am doing well, i am leading in the polls, the big ones, the little ones, i am leading in iowa, because when people look at scott walker, his state has a $2.2 billion deficit.
2:58 pm
he was telling people that his growth is terrible in terms of the state, and there is tremendous dissension all over the state, but they said they were going to have a big surplus over $1 billion, but there is a 2.2 billion dollar deficit, and nobody was willing to say it but me. and i didn't want to say. i would have never have said it i would he did -- have never said it until he attacked me. >> [indiscernible] donald trump: i am doing well, i am building it all over the world. i am building it all over the world, in china. i am doing great. putin can't stand obama. nobody. who likes obama? i am talking worldwide. he doesn't get along with anybody. i said it. hillary clinton was the single worst secretary of state in the history of this country.
2:59 pm
the world collapsed around us while she was secretary of state. mightn my opinion, kerry be worse, because he is making a deal with iran that is so bad and so dangerous and so incompetent and stupid that it will have grave consequences. grave consequences. >> day one, how would you stop the iranians from getting nuclear weapons? donald trump: you will have to use forceful actions. very forceful actions. let me just tell you that israel was sold out by kerry and obama. you cannot have a nuclear iran. you can't have it. when they are marching down the street saying, "death to israel," you can't have it. >> have you set a budget for this endeavor? donald trump: irrelevant. you see that i make $400 million a year, so what difference does it make?
3:00 pm
