“I’m not a bully,” Trump claimed. “No, I’m not a bully at all. I don’t think I’m a bully at all.”
Later Cooper asked Trump, “So as president would you be sending cease and desist letters?”
“Yeah, maybe to China. I would be sending them to China to [tell them to] stop ripping us off, I would be sending them to other countries to stop ripping us off. I’d send them to Mexico. And when I say cease and desist, maybe it’s equivalent, okay maybe with my mouth,” Trump suggested.
“Look, our country is going to hell. We have a problem with China, we have a problem with Japan, we have a problem with Mexico both at the border and in trade,” he insisted.
“Carrier just announced they’re moving to, Carrier air conditioning, I buy them all the time, I’m not going to buy them any more by the way, I buy thousands. They’re moving to Mexico. I saw the clip. I saw the boss say we’re closing up, we’re moving to Mexico. What do we get out of it? They’re moving to Mexico. Now they’re going to make air conditioners, sell them to us, not tax, no nothing. We get nothing out of it. By the way, if we say you’re going to have to pay a 35 percent tax to get them through the border, they wouldn’t even move.” (RELATED: Employees React To News 1,400 Jobs Are Leaving The Country [VIDEO])
