CloseUp: One-on-one interview with President Trump


GOOD MORNING. I’M ADAM SEXTON. IN SIZE AND SCOPE THERE IS
NOTHING BIGGER IN MODERN
CAMPAIGN POLITICS THAN A TRUMP
RALLY. THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE PACKED INTO
SNHU ARENA THURSDAY WITH
HUNDREDS MORE OUTSIDE, ALONG
WITH A LARGE CROWD OF
PROTESTERS. THIS IS A PRESIDENT WHO INSPIRES
STRONG FEELINGS AMONG SUPPORTERS
AND OPPONENTS. BEFORE THE RALLY WE SPOKE WITH
THE PRESIDENT ONE-ON-ONE
TOUCHING ON TOPICS RANGING FROM
GUN CONTROL TO VOTER FRAUD. HE ALSO SAYS HE HASN’T FORGOTTEN
HIS PROMISE TO BRING NEW
HAMPSHIRE’S OPIOID CRISIS TO AN
END. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING
TIME WITH US. ONE OF THE MOST CONSISTENT
PROMISES YOU MADE IN 2015 AND
2016 WAS TO RESOLVE THE OPIOID
CRISIS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. YOUR ADMINISTRATION HAS PROVIDED
A LOT OF HELP BUT THE OVERDOSES
ARE STILL HAPPENING. WHAT MORE CAN YOU PLACE TO HELP
THE STATE? PRES. TRUMP: IT IS SOMETHING
TAKING PLACE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE
PROPORTIONATELY ALMOST MORE THAN
OHIO. WE HAVE REALLY WORKED HARD. TREMENDOUS LAWSUITS GOING
AGAINST THE PHARMACEUTICAL
COMPANIES. WE HAVE IT DOWN 16%, 17%. THAT DOES NOT SATISFY ANYTHING
BUT WE HAVE IT DOWN. THE OTHER THINK WE’RE TRYING IS
A NONADDICTIVE PAINKILLER. WE ARE WORKING VERY HARD ON THAT
WITH EVERYBODY. THE ORDER IS OUT. GET A PAINKILLER THAT IS NOT SO
ADDICTIVE. PEOPLE TAKE FOUR DAYS OF OPIOIDS
AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THEY ARE
ADDICTED. WE ARE DOWN 17% AS OF THIS
MOMENT. THE FIRST LADY IS CHAIRING A
COMMITTEE. SHE FEELS STRONGLY ABOUT IT. YOU HAVE THE OTHER DRUG PROBLEM
IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, OTHER KINDS OF
DRUGS. WE ARE STOPPING PEOPLE NOW WITH
THE BORDER WHO ARE COLLECTING
TREMENDOUS AMOUNTS OF — YOU ARE
DOING MUCH BETTER BUT WE HAVE A
LOT OF VERY GOOD THINGS COMING. ADAM DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN
HAMMERING YOU ON THIS ISSUE OVER
COMMENTS THAT CAME OUT IN A
TRANSCRIPT FOR YOU REFERRED TO
NEW HAMPSHIRE AS A DRUG INFESTED
DEN. YOU FEEL THE — YOU OTHER
PEOPLE AN APOLOGY? PRES. TRUMP: NO, THAT IS WHAT
THEY TELL ME. IT’S A FACT. SO MANY PEOPLE. I TOLD YOU THIS ONCE BEFORE,
WHEN I COME UP TO NEW HAMPSHIRE
THEY CONSIDER THEIR NUMBER ONE
PROBLEM. THEY CALL IT THE PEOPLE — THE
PEOPLE I LOVE AND THE LAPEER SO
WELL. THEY SAY IT IS DRUG INFESTED. WE ARE REALLY CLEANING IT OUT. THE POLICE ARE DOING A GREAT
JOB. ADAM: HEALTH CARE A BIG TOPIC
AND INVOLVES THE OPIOID CRISIS. A LOT OF CANDIDATES RUNNING WANT
TO EXPAND MEDICARE EITHER A
LITTLE OR QUITE A BIT. WHAT IS THE TRUMP PLAN FOR
HEALTH CARE? PRES. TRUMP: IF WE CAN TAKE BACK
THE HOUSE — WERE NOT GOING TO
GET THE DEMOCRATS TO VOTE FOR
IT. THEY WENT MEDICARE FOR ALL OF
WHICH WILL TAKE AWAY EVERYTHING
YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO HAVE. MOST IMPORTANTLY IT WILL TAKE
AWAY — WE HAVE 180 MILLION
PEOPLE WITH PRIVATE INSURANCE
AND THEY LOVE IT. IT IS ABSOLUTELY CRAZINESS, ON
TOP OF EVERYTHING ELSE, 80 TAX
— 80% TAX. WE WENT THROUGH THIS WITH
OBAMACARE. WE GOT RID OF THE INDIVIDUAL
MANDATE. WE HAVE A GREAT HEALTH CARE
PLAN. WE GET THE HOUSE, WITHHOLD THE
SENATE, WE KEEP THE PRESIDENCY
AND WE WILL HAVE GREAT HEALTH
CARE. MUCH BETTER THAN OBAMACARE AT
MUCH LESS COST. ADAM: THE GOVERNOR VETOED A GUN
BILL. YOU SAID YOU ARE IN FAVOR OF
MEANINGFUL BACKGROUND CHECKS. DOES THAT INCLUDE CLOSING GUN
SHOW WHO PULLS FOR MENTAL HEALTH
RECORDS? PRES. TRUMP: WE ARE DEALING WITH
A LOT OF REPUBLICANS, STRONG
CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICANS AND WE
ARE COMING UP WITH A PLAN. WE HAVE A LOT OF BACKGROUND
CHECKS ALREADY. PEOPLE DON’T REALIZE THAT. WITHIN THE CONSTITUTION AND THE
RIGHTS AND WE HAVE TO REMEMBER
WE HAVE TO REMEMBER YOU HAVE A
MENTAL ILLNESS PROBLEM. THAT IS A TREMENDOUS PROBLEM. IT IS NOT THE GUN THAT PULLS THE
TRIGGER, IT’S THE PERSON HOLDING
THE GUN. WE HAVE TO REMEMBER MENTAL
ILLNESS. WE ARE WORKING ON THAT,
INCLUDING INSTITUTIONS. THEY WERE CLOSED FOR BUDGETARY
REASONS. EVERYBODY WAS ALLOWED TO GO OUT
ON THE STREETS. WE HAVE A REAL MENTAL ILLNESS
PROBLEM. WE WILL HAVE IT TAKEN CARE OF. WE ARE WORKING WITH REPUBLICANS
AND ULTIMATELY WITH THE
DEMOCRATS TO SEE IF SOMETHING
CAN BE DONE. I DON’T KNOW IF IT IS POSSIBLE
BUT WE ARE WORKING ON. ADAM: VOTER FRAUD. YOU’VE ALLEGED 2016 WAS A
PROBLEM. YOUR APPOINTEE TO THE
COMMISSION, OUR SECRETARY OF
STATE FOUND NO EVIDENCE OF
WIDESPREAD VOTER FRAUD. ARE YOU CONCERNED THAT HAPPENING
AGAIN? PRES. TRUMP: YOU HAVE VOTER
FRAUD OVER THE COUNTRY. LOOK AT CALIFORNIA AND SO MANY
OTHER STATES. IN CALIFORNIA THEY HAD ONE
MILLION PEOPLE THEY FOUND
THROUGH JUDICIAL WATCH. PLENTY OF OTHER PLACES. WE HAVE TO STOP VOTER FRAUD. VOTER FRAUD IS A BIG PROBLEM, NO
QUESTION ABOUT IT. ADAM: COREY LEWANDOWSKI EYEING A
SENATE RUN. PRES. TRUMP: HE’S OUTSTANDING. WE WILL MAKE A DECISION QUICKLY
BUT HE’S A GREAT GUY. I THINK HE CAN DO AMAZING. HE IS SMART, HE’S TOUGH. HE LOVES NEW HAMPSHIRE. THIS IS WHERE IT ALL BEGINS AND
ENDS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. HE LOVES OUR COUNTRY. IF HE R

  1. How can we, as a nation, fix the (mental health problem) if we can't come together as a country and provide affordable mental health services?
    The rates of psychologists/mental health therapists, are ridiculous, most of these (mass shooters) come from poverty.

  2. The opioid crisis goes deep. "Greed" aka. capitalism is a vampire that is sucking the joy out of life and devouring the planet like a ravenous cancer.

    Darkness (empty numbers/accountants) exist so that stars (poets, artists, musicians and mystics) have a place to "be".

    Stars (poets, artists, musicians and mystics) don't exist to be dish washers, servants and slaves for accountants (emptiness).

  3. I don’t hear any policy decisions. He keeps talking about what’s coming and what we’re working hard on . He says nothing specific. It’s all bull. He’s a con.
