  • HE WILL WENT RIGHT AT IT.

  • LONG DAY PROBABLY TIRED

  • BETWEEN JET LAG AND THE FUND

  • RAISING HE WAS DOING,

  • MEETING WITH THE BORDER

  • PATROL FOLKS.

  • HE GOT FIRED UP WHEN WE

  • STARTED TALKING AND HERE'S

  • WHY.

  • WE HAD DEMOCRATS ON THE SHOW

  • SAYING THE PRESIDENT IS NOT

  • TELLING THE TRUTH.

  • THAT'S WHAT THEY CLAIM WHEN

  • HE SAYS AND BOASTS THAT

  • THERE IS NO WALL BEING

  • BUILT.

  • I'M HERE TO SAY THE

  • PRESIDENT IS RIGHT.

  • AND THEY ARE WRONG.

  • AND THAT'S NOWFTZ AN

  • OPINION.

  • THAT'S MY ROUTEING WITH MY

  • OWN TWO EYES.

  • I WAS THERE.

  • THERE IS, IN FACT, MILES AND

  • MILES OF NEW WALL BEING

  • BUILT.

  • AND IT'S WORKING, NUMBER

  • ONE, WE WILL SHOW YOU THAT

  • NUMBER TWO, THE PRESIDENT

  • TALKED ABOUT IRAN.

  • THAT HE WANTS PEACE NOT WAR.

  • AND WHEN IT COMES TO THOSE

  • FED RATE CUTS.

  • IF YOU ARE THE CHAIRMAN OF

  • THE FED WAKING UP WATCHING,

  • THIS YOU MAY WANT TO POUR

  • ANOTHER CUP OF COFFEE.

  • WATCH.

  • >> LET'S START WITH SOME

  • BREAKING NEWS FROM THE FED

  • TODAY.

  • YOU WERE PRETTY UPSET THAT

  • THEY ONLY CUT IT A QUARTER

  • OF A PERCENTAGE POINT AND

  • YOU SAID CHAIRMAN POWELL HAS

  • NO GUTS, WHY?

  • >> THINK WE SHOULD DO MORE

  • BECAUSE OTHER COUNTRIES HAVE

  • DONE MORE.

  • IF YOU LOOK AT GERMANY AND

  • JAPAN AND SO MANY OTHERS,

  • THEY ARE CUTTING MUCH MORE.

  • IN FACT, THEY ARE BORROWING

  • MONEY AND GETTING PAID TO

  • BORROW MONEY AND WE ARE

  • PAYING INTEREST.

  • WE ARE THE MOST PRIME IN THE

  • WORLD.

  • WE HAVE THIS GREAT ECONOMY.

  • WE ARE DOING BETTER THAN WE

  • HAVE EVER DONE.

  • OUR EMPLOYMENT NUMBERS ARE

  • THE BEST THEY HAVE EVER

  • BEEN.

  • UNEMPLOYMENT NUMBERS, ALSO.

  • WE ARE DOING GREAT.

  • BUT WE SHOULD BE CUTTING.

  • THERE IS NO INFLATION.

  • ED: YOU ARE WORRIED HE IS

  • PUTTING A WET BLANKET AHEAD

  • OF 2020.

  • >> I THINK WHAT HE DOES -- I

  • DON'T THINK HE KNOWS HOW TO

  • PLAY THE GAME VERY WELL.

  • THEY HAVE RAISED TOO FAST.

  • AND I HAVE BEEN SAYING THIS

  • OPENLY.

  • ED: UM-HUH.

  • >> AND THEY HAVE LOWERED TOO

  • SLOW.

  • HE TOOK 25. SOME PEOPLE

  • WERE HOPING FOR 50.

  • HE TOOK 25.

  • BUT THE FACT IS WHEN GERMANY

  • GETS PAID TO LOAN MONEY,

  • THEY ARE LOANING -- THEY ARE

  • BORROWING MONEY SO THEY'RE

  • BORROWING -- THINK OF IT,

  • THEY BORROW MONEY AND WHEN

  • IT COMES TIME TO PAY BACK,

  • PEOPLE PAY THEM.

  • ED: RIGHT.

  • >> WE CAN'T PARTICIPATE IN

  • THAT IT'S BECAUSE OF THE

  • FED.

  • SO I'M NOT THRILLED PUT FED.

  • BUT, DESPITE THAT WE HAVE AN

  • INCREDIBLE ECONOMY AND WE

  • DON'T HAVE INFLATION.

  • ED: CHAIRMAN POWELL'S JOB IS

  • SAFE.

  • >> IT'S SAFE, YEAH.

  • IT'S SAFE.

  • SURE, WHY NOT.

  • ED: YOU PAUSED?

  • >> NO, I DON'T PAUSE.

  • HE HAS GOT A JOB.

  • I'M DISAPPOINTED IN HIM.

  • I'M VERY DISAPPOINTED IN

  • HIM.

  • I THINK HE RAISED FAR TOO

  • FAST.

  • HE DID QUANTITATIVE

  • TIGHTENING WHICH IS NOT A

  • GOOD THING TO DO.

  • BUT IT'S ALL RIGHT.

  • AND, LOOK, WE HAVE A GREAT

  • ECONOMY AND IT'S NOT GOING

  • TO MAKE THE DIFFERENCE.

  • IT WOULD HAVE GIVEN US AN

  • EDGE AND INSTEAD SOMEBODY

  • ELSE HAS AN EDGE.

  • THEY ARE SO FAR BEHIND US

  • THEY CAN'T CATCH US.

  • ED: ON IRAN TOUGH NEW

  • SANCTIONS THE "WALL STREET

  • JOURNAL" REPORTING YOU ARE

  • BEHIND THE SCENES TRYING TO

  • WORK DIPLOMATIC ANGLES AT

  • THE U.N. AND HAVE SOMETHING

  • SHORT OF ACTUALLY WAR.

  • WHY DID YOU TWEET LOCKED AND

  • LOADED IF YOU DON'T WANT TO

  • GO TO WAR?

  • >> WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

  • YOU MAY HAVE VERY STRONG

  • HIT.

  • STRONGEST MILITARY BY FAR.

  • WHEN I CAME IN WE WERE

  • DEPLETED.

  • NOW WE ARE VERY POWERFUL.

  • WE HAVE NEW PLANES, IN

  • MISSILES, NEW EVERYTHING.

  • EVERY FORM OF EQUIPMENT.

  • WE ARE BUILDING MANY NEW

  • SHIPS AS YOU KNOW.

  • NEW SUBMARINES.

  • WE ARE DOING THINGS THAT WE

  • HAVEN'T DONE IN MANY, MANY

  • YEARS.

  • I CAME, IN WE WERE DEPLETED.

  • I TOLD YOU YESTERDAY VERY

  • LOW ON AMMUNITION.

  • AND I'M BEING NICE WHEN I

  • SAY THAT I SAID THAT SHOULD

  • NEVER HAPPEN TO ANOTHER PUT.

  • WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

  • A LOT OF THINGS COULD HAPPEN

  • IF WE CAN HAVE A PEACEFUL

  • SOLUTION THAT'S GOOD.

  • IT'S POSSIBLE THAT THAT

  • WON'T HAPPEN.

  • BUT THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A

  • STRONGER COUNTRY MILITARILY.

  • NOT EVEN CLOSE.

  • ED: LET'S TALK ABOUT WHAT'S

  • BEHIND YOU BECAUSE I HAVE

  • INTERVIEWED VARIOUS

  • DEMOCRATS ON THE SHOW AND

  • THEY WILL TELL ME THIS IS A

  • FAN TEAS.

  • THERE IS NO NEW WALL BEING

  • BUILT.

  • THEY HAVE SAID THAT.

  • >> THIS WAS NOT HERE TWO

  • WEEKS AGO.

  • SO THIS IS ALL BRAND NEW

  • WALL.

  • THIS GOES MILES UP THE

  • MOUNTAIN OVER HERE.

  • THIS GOES I MEAN YOU ARE

  • SEEING IT.

  • THIS GOES MILES DOWN THIS

  • DIRECTION.

  • ED: ABOUT 14 MILES SO FAR

  • JUST HERE.

  • BUT WE ARE BUILDING MANY

  • THAT ARE 50 AND 40 AND 17

  • AND DIFFERENT AREAS WE ARE

  • BUILDING ON MANY DIFFERENT

  • SITES.

  • ALL UP AND DOWN ALONG THE

  • BORDER.

  • AND THEY GET HOOKED, IN

  • DIFFERENT CONTRACTORS BID IT

  • OUT.

  • THIS WOULD BE FAR TOO MUCH

  • FOR ONE CONTRACTOR TO BUILD.

  • YOU SEE THE LENGTH OF THIS.

  • ED: ABSOLUTELY.

  • ALSO HAVE YOU TWO LEVELS

  • HERE BECAUSE HAVE YOU 18

  • FEED OVER HERE.

  • >> THIS IS TIJUANA.

  • COUNTRY.

  • THEY CAN'T GET.

  • IN TIJUANA WE HAVE A DOUBLE

  • WALL.

  • THAT'S AN 18-FOOT WALL.

  • THAT'S THE BORDER.

  • AND THEN IF THEY GET OVER

  • HERE, THEY CAN'T GET UP THIS

  • WALL.

  • ED: I INTERVIEWED BORDER

  • PATROL AGENTS DOZENS CAN GET

  • OVER WITH LADDERS NONE OVER

  • THE 30 FEET.

  • >> WE HAD CHAMPIONSHIP
