NARRATIVE.

>> Bret: LET'S LISTEN IN.

>> A HIT ON ISIS, DIDN'T WORK

OUT THAT WAY.

THEY NEVER LEFT.

THEY HAVE BEEN THERE FOR MANY

YEARS.

WE WERE DOWN TO VERY FEW

SOLDIERS IN SYRIA.

WE HAD 50 IN THE REGION THAT

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT, 50

SOLDIERS AND THEY'VE ALREADY

BEEN MOVED OUT.

WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS WITH

RESPECT TO A LOT OF DIFFERENT

THINGS.

WE HAVE TOLD TURKEY -- I SPOKE

TO THE PRESIDENT AND I SAID YOU

HAVE TO TREAT THEM GOOD AND TAKE

CARE OF ISIS.

DON'T FORGET, WE DEFEATED THIS

GROUP LARGELY.

DEFEATED ISIS 100% OF THE

CALIPHATE, 100%.

WE WANTED TO DO 100%.

I WAS GOING TO DO THIS MONTHS

AGO AND WE WERE NOT AT 100%, BUT

WE WERE VERY CLOSE.

EVERYONE SAID, CAN WE GET 100%?

NOW WE ARE AT 100% AND THEY SAY,

MAYBE WE CAN STAY LONGER?

WE NEED TO BRING YOUR PEOPLE

BACK HOME AND FRANKLY ARE GREAT

SOLDIERS HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT

THIS.

YOU GO BACK THREE YEARS AGO AND

YOU WATCH THE SPEECHES, WE WANT

TO BRING OUR SOLDIERS BACK HOME.

WE ARE NOT FIGHTING, WE ARE

POLICING TO A LARGE EXTENT.

WE ARE NOT POLICE.

THESE ARE FIGHTERS, GREAT

FIGHTERS, THE GREATEST IN THE

WORLD AND THAT'S WHAT THEY DO.

I HAVE TOLD PRESIDENT TO TOMM

I HAVE TOLD PRESIDENT TO TOMC

I HAVE TOLD PRESIDENT TO TOMK

THE PRESIDENT, THEY'VE BEEN

FIGHTING THE VARIOUS PEOPLE WE

WERE WORKING WITH AND TURKEY HAS

BEEN FIGHTING THEM FOR MANY

YEARS, SOMEBODY SAID HUNDREDS OF

YEARS.

THEY MENTIONED TO ME YESTERDAY,

200 YEARS OR MAYBE MORE.

AT SOME POINT WE HAVE TO BRING

OUR PEOPLE BACK HOME AND THAT'S

WHAT WE ARE DOING.

IT'S ALWAYS A FIRM DECISION.

LAST TIME I MADE A FIRM DECISION

AND I SAID HE WILL DO IT OVER A

PERIOD OF TIME.

WE HAVE BEEN DOING IT OVER A

LONG PERIOD OF TIME AND WE'VE

BEEN WORKING WITH THE PEOPLE IN

THIS REMINDER SOLDIERS HAVE BEEN

COMING BACK HOME OVER THAT

PERIOD OF TIME.

I THINK ONE OF THE VERY BIG

FACTORS BUT WE DEFEATED ISIS, WE

HAVE THOUSANDS RIGHT NOW VICES

FIGHTERS AND FAMILIES.

WE HAVE FAMILY MEMBERS, WIVES,

CHILDREN AND MANY OF THEM COME

OUT OF EUROPE AND GERMANY AND

FRANCE AND OTHER COUNTRIES THAT

I TOLD THEM, YOU HAVE TO TAKE

THESE PEOPLE BACK.

YOU HAVE TO TAKE THEM BACK AND

THEY SAID, WE DON'T WANT TO DO

THAT AND I SAID, YOU HAVE TO DO

THAT.

THAT'S NOT FAIR TO THE AMERICAN

TAXPAYERS OR AMERICA OR THE

UNITED STATES NOT TO DO THAT.

THEY CHOSE NOT TO DO IT.

I SAID AGAIN, YOU HAVE TO TAKE

THEM BACK.

WE CAN TAKE CARE OF 60, 70,000

PEOPLE AND NOT GOING TO MOVE THE

FIGHTERS TO RUN HOME AND OBEY

AND TAKE CARE OF THEM FOR

MANY YEARS.

IT'S TIME FOR US.

GREAT SERVICE, GREAT FAVOR, WE

DEFEATED THEM 100% AND NOW IT'S

TIME FOR GERMANY AND FRANCE AND

ALL OF THE NATIONS WHERE THEY

CAME FROM TO TAKE THEM BACK AND

THEY CHOSE NO.

MAYBE THEY WILL CHANGE THEIR

TUNE NOW, I DON'T KNOW.

IN THE MEANTIME WE WILL HAVE TO

RELY ON THE EUROPEAN NATIONS AND

RELY ON VARIOUS OTHER NATIONS AS

AN EXAMPLE.

HE RAN, IRAQ, TURKEY, SYRIA,

RUSSIA, SOME OTHER NATIONS TO

TAKE CARE OF THESE FIGHTERS.

THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS NOT GOING

TO SPEND 50 YEARS OF PAYING TAX

OR WHATEVER IT MAY BE, WHATEVER

IT MAY BE.

FOR INSTANCE, PRISONS AND THE

UNITED STATES.

THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER WON'T HIT

UP WITH THAT.

>> Reporter: ARE YOU CONCERNED

WITH THE SECOND WHISTLE-BLOWER?

>> NOT AT ALL BECAUSE THE CALL

WAS PERFECT, YOU HAD

STENOGRAPHERS AND PEOPLE THAT

TOOK IT DOWN.

IT'S A SCAM.

IT'S A SCAM BY THE DEMOCRATS TO

TRY TO WIN ELECTION THEY WON'T

WON IN 2020.

TAKE A LOOK AT THE POLL AND SEE

WHAT HAPPENED.

ONE POLL HAD ME UP 16 POINTS

WERE 17 POINTS.

TO CLICK ON WHAT IS GOING ON.

THE PEOPLE UNDERSTAND IT'S A

SCAM.

THEY'RE TRYING TO WIN AND

ELECTION IN 2020 BY USING

IMPEACHMENT.

IF YOU LOOK AT THAT CALL,

PERFECT CALL.

IT'S CONGENIAL, NO PRESSURE AND

WHAT DID THE HEAD OF UKRAINE'S

EGG?

DID HE SAID THERE WAS NO

PRESSURE?

DID HIS TOP REPRESENTATIVE, HAS

POOR MINISTER SAID THERE WAS NO

PRESSURE WHATSOEVER?

THERE WAS NO PRESSURE.

THIS IS A SCAM.

ONE OF THE GREATEST SCAMS.

WE WON ON THE MUELLER SCAM, THAT

WAS A WHOLE BIG DEAL THAT LEFT

AFTER TWO YEARS.

THEY CAME UP WITH THIS ONE.

I GUESS THAT'S PART OF MY LIFE.

THIS IS THE MOST RIDICULOUS

THING MANY PEOPLE HAVE EVER

SEEN.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS READ WHAT

THEY WROTE DOWN, THEY

STENOGRAPHERS WROTE ON THE EXACT

CALL.

WHAT HAPPENED IS ADAM SCHIFF

WENT UP BEFORE CONGRESS AND HE

READ THE MOST HORRIBLE SPEECH

ATTRIBUTED THE SPEECH TO ME.

THESE PEOPLE, BELIEVE THIS.

IF YOU WENT TO WEST POINT WHERE

THE AIR FORCE AIR FORCE ACADEMY

AND A POINT TO BELIEVE THIS.

HE WENT UP AND HE TOOK HIS

SPEECH AND HE MADE IT.

IT WAS HORRIBLE.

HE SAID THE PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES HAD THIS.

IT'S A FRAUD.

IT'S A FRAUDULENT SPEECH.

WHAT HE DID IS INCREDIBLE.

IT SHOULDN'T BE ALLOWED AND I

DON'T THINK IT'S GOING TO BE

ALLOWED.

I THINK A LOT OF THINGS ARE

HAPPENING.

BY THE WAY, NANCY PELOSI KNEW IT

WAS A FRAUD AND SHE DIDN'T SAY

ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

TAKE A LOOK AT THAT CALL, THAT

CALL IS A VERY TERRIFIC CALL.

IT'S CONGENIAL, THERE WAS NO

PRESSURE.

THERE WAS NO ANYTHING.

YOU KNOW IT AND SO DO AND SO

DOES EVERYBODY ELSE.

THAT IS WHY THE POLLS ARE DOING

WELL.

THAT'S WHY -- I DON'T BRING UP A

FUND RAISING, BUT I BELIEVE IN

THE HISTORY OF THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY AT THIS TIME THEY'VE NEVER

HAD ANYTHING LIKE THE NUMBERS

THAT -- $13 MILLION AND MANY

SMALL DONATIONS AND A 24-HOUR

PERIOD.

THAT HASN'T EVEN HAPPENED.

PEOPLE UNDERSTAND IT'S A FRAUD,

IT'S A SCAM, IT'S A WITCH HUNT

AND ALL WE DO IS KEEP FIGHTING

FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BECAUSE

THAT'S ALL I DO.

WE WIN, OUR ECONOMY IS DOING

GREAT, OUR JOBS ARE THE BEST AS

EVER BEEN FOR MANY GROUPS,

AFRICAN-AMERICANS, ASIANS,

HISPANICS.

THE BEST THEY'VE EVER BEEN IN

THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY AND

OVERALL THEY'RE THE BEST NUMBERS

IN 51 YEARS.
