A video of 1988 interview of then- business idol Donald Trump on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” reemerged, showing that President Trump does not do uncalculated things.
“You’ve said though that if you did run for president you believe you’d win,” Oprah Winfrey said to Trump.
His predictions are remarkable and only add to the liberal upset over Hillary losing to Trump in the 2016 elections.
“Well I don’t know, I think I’d win. I tell you what I wouldn’t go in to lose,” Trump said. “I’ve never gone in to lose in my life.”
He then continued: “And if I did decide to do it I think I’d be inclined — I would say that I would have a hell of a chance of winning … I think people are tired of seeing the United States ripped off and I can’t promise you everything, but I can tell you one thing, this country would make one hell of a lot of money from those people that for 25 years have taken advantage. It wouldn’t be the way it’s been, believe me.”
The Commerce Department data shows U.S. third-quarter GDP growth in 2017 is the highest it has been in the past three years.
Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said to the lawmakers November “the economy will continue to expand.”
The Labor Department report in November showed that the unemployment rate is only 4.1 percent, this hasn’t happened in nearly 17 years. And the same day, the Standard & Poor’s 500 set a new Wall Street record.
“Unemployment is down to 4.1%, lowest in 17 years. 1.5 million new jobs created since I took office. Highest stock Market ever, up $5.4 trill,” Trump wrote on Twitter responding to the news.
During the 1988 interview, Trump also criticized the current U.S. foreign policy.
“What would you do differently Donald?” Winfrey asked.
“I’d make our allies pay their fair share. We’re a debtor nation,” Trump said. “Something is going to happen over the next number of years with this country because you can’t keep going on losing $200 billion.”
Trump has always spoken about the poor U.S. agreements with other countries. Trump criticized Japan, saying “we let Japan in and dump everything right into our markets. It’s not free trade.”
“I have tremendous respect for the Japanese people — I mean you can respect somebody that’s beaten the hell out of you, but they are beating the hell out of this country,” he continued.
Since becoming the president, Trump focused on renegotiating U.S. foreign policy. But his main focus has relocated from Japan to China.
Trump spoke about his displeasure with the current trade policies between the U.S. and China in 2016 during his presidential campaign assembly in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
“We can’t continue to allow China to rape our country and that’s what they’re doing,” Trump said. It’s the greatest theft in the history of the world.”
After his trip to Asia in Nov., President Trump announced $250 billion in agreements between the U.S. and China.
“The contributions of the business community represented here today are vital to our efforts to ensure peace and prosperity for our two nations. Together, we can unlock a future of opportunity, wealth, and dignity far beyond anybody’s wildest dreams,” Trump said on his final day in Asia.
