Trump, “Hillary was the worst secretary of state in the history of our country. I’m the only one that’s going to beat her, Sean, nobody else is going to beat her.” And “Jeb Bush will never take us to the promised land. No matter what you do, it’s not going to happen.”
After the discussion turned to illegal immigration, Trump said, “we wouldn’t even be talking about illegal immigration if it weren’t for me.” And that his controversial comments were about illegal immigrants forced into the US by Mexico.

Earlier, Trump criticized the Iran nuclear deal as a “disgrace,” but a “phenomenal deal” for Iran and criticized the advanced notice for inspections. He especially criticized the failure to secure the release of the American prisoners in Iran while stating that if he was president, the prisoners would be released. Trump also stated Iran was almost “taunting” the US by keeping the prisoners, and their release would have “softened” the deal from Iran’s standpoint since they don’t want or need the prisoners.
Trump continued that he would have increased sanctions on Iran, “would have waited for them to call us,” and demanded the release of the prisoners before negotiations started. He further argued that Iran will “very easily” be able to get nuclear weapons at the end of the deal’s term and that the deal was “potentially catastrophic” for Israel.
