  • -Donald, this is getting real. This is --

  • -Yeah, it's getting real. I agree.

  • -You still have time. Do you still want to do this?

  • I mean, there's time.

  • -We're doing well.

  • It's been really a lot of fun,

  • and it's an amazing movement all over the country.

  • It's been incredible,

  • so, no, it's been an honor for me, I have to say.

  • -There's probably kids watching you right now,

  • if they're at home watching.

  • They do stay up late and watch our show.

  • Why should they want to grow up and be president?

  • -Well, I think you want to grow up and be president

  • because you want to help people.

  • And you want to help people.

  • There's tremendous problems that people in this country have,

  • and all over the world.

  • And if you want to help people,

  • there's no better position to do it from than the presidency.

  • So we can do a lot of good.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • -Did you always see yourself --

  • Did you always see yourself getting into politics?

  • -I really never did.

  • I probably wouldn't have done

  • many of the shows that I've done over the years

  • if I ever thought.

  • But I never thought this would happen.

  • Four years ago, I really, seriously considered it.

  • And they renewed --

  • As you know, they wanted me to stay and do "The Apprentice,"

  • and I was doing all of these jobs and --

  • But I really wanted to do it,

  • and ultimately I decided I'd wait.

  • Let's see how things go with the country,

  • and things only got worse,

  • and I decided to do it.

  • And, you know, I gave up a lot by doing this.

  • This is a tough thing. There's nothing easy about it.

  • I've always heard doing this is a very, very difficult thing,

  • but nobody knows how tough it is.

  • -It is, right? I mean, it's been a long ---

  • -It's grueling. It's grueling and --

  • But at the same time, very satisfying.

  • You know, you see what's happening

  • and you see what's going on, so it's very satisfying.

  • But it's a grueling process.

  • -Do you think your business background

  • helps you with campaigning?

  • Like, if you have, like --

  • you have to target, like, say you need women from 25 to 40,

  • you need that age group, do you target that?

  • -Well, I think where it helps --

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -That's good, right? Is that too business-y?

  • -I'm trying to figure that one out.

  • -I'm reading -- I'm halfway through your book.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • It's pretty good. it's pretty good.

  • -We're gonna get that one soon.

  • But, you know, yeah, I think business will always help.

  • It helps from a country standpoint.

  • You know, it's interesting.

  • When I was doing the primaries,

  • I spent less money than other people,

  • and I did better than other people.

  • And that's what we want to do for the country.

  • We want to spend less money and do better.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • And I think we can do that.

  • I think we can do that.

  • -We were talking about how long and grueling it is.

  • What has changed

  • from when you first started running to now?

  • -Well, I think the press has become more and more vicious.

  • You know, it was interesting.

  • We started off with 17,

  • and you had some of them in here,

  • and one by one by one --

  • -We had about 15 on here.

  • -You had about 15.

  • Maybe not all 17, but you had a lot of them.

  • But we had 17 people.

  • And as it got down, you know,

  • I do notice there's a big difference with the media.

  • I also say, though, there's even more love out there.

  • People want this to happen.

  • They really want it to happen.

  • And you see what's going on, even today with the polls

  • where the polls are so good.

  • We just got a great poll from Colorado.

  • Normally, a Republican wouldn't do particularly well there,

  • and we're leading in Colorado and we're leading in Iowa.

  • We're leading in Ohio and Florida.

  • We're leading all over, and it's been amazing.

  • It's been really amazing.

  • -Do you pay attention to the polls?

  • -Oh, I love the polls. -You do?

  • -But I don't pay attention --

  • If I'm losing or lagging, I'd never mention polls.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • Believe me.

  • Only when I'm winning.

  • -I've noticed that -- little changes.

  • I think your voice has changed a little bit.

  • Because I've done --

  • I hate to break it to you,

  • but I've done an impression of you

  • once or twice...on this show.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • -You have.

  • -Thank you for letting me do that.

  • -And a very good impression. -Thank you.

  • But when you first started running,

  • [As Trump] you were very high-voiced.

  • Your voice was very high,

  • China -- You'd say "China."

  • A lot of pointing -- very high.

  • [ Normal voice ] And then you got into a stage

  • where you were just yelling.

  • [As Trump] You were yelling into the microphone at people

  • and you were yelling at everyone!

  • [ Normal voice ] And, like, you don't even need the mic.

  • [ As Trump ] And now, you're more of, like, a smoky, silky...

  • [ Laughter ]

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • [ Laughs ]

  • Like a Donald Trump/Alec Baldwin impression type of voice.

  • Yeah, that's what I see you're doing.

  • And I got to kindly thank you

  • for giving us the material that we're doing.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • It's been amazing to follow and exciting

  • because you say some shocking things.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • I can't even believe.

  • -But I'm trying not to anymore.

  • -Oh, yeah.

  • See, that's changing. Yeah.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • That's what I'm talking about, so, yeah.

-Donald, this is getting real. This is --
