Exit question comes from general I guess keys from Irwin Pennsylvania that's around Pittsburgh and you voted for president trump last summer jam packed. At times some have called your behavior not presidential. What if any thing would you do differently if reelected to create a more unified message we're all sides can take responsibilities for their actions and come together to make positive change. Which good game so. I'm fighting a battle. It's a big battle field and have a lot of forces against me have the media which I called a fake news because a lot of it is fake and I mean a big Pope as you understand. A lot of his think I'm fighting a lot of forces sometimes you don't have time to be. Totally as you would say presidential. You have to get things done. I think I've done more than any other president in the first three and a half years when you look at what we've done for tax cuts and regulation god said. The vets all of the things that we've done for the west we have we have a 91% approval factor now for the vets. So we rebuild our military we created space for Sammy we did so many things. Right to try which is so incredible and so successful you know what right to try his. We did more I really believe it more than any other president in the first inning of years by the way. At the end of my first term we're gonna have close to 300 may be over 300 new federal judges including Court of Appeals to the Supreme Court justices. And honestly. We move very fast. And I have to get rid of people fast because they're not doing the job I could tell you people that were doing their job. And when I do that to get somebody else that is good and if they don't do what we get rid of that person. We do a lot of things and we have to get them done I could be so Prez I always used to sort of kid on the campaign trial that I could be trail that I could be. More president she'll be very easy more presidential than any other candidate except for possibly. Abraham Lincoln when he's wearing the hat right I had. But the fact is being presidential is easier that what I have to do. But I get things done I get things done like nobody's ever gotten when you look at including environmental things when you look at what's going on in the country and all that we've done. We unfortunately got hit by this play. But it's gonna be back very soon we opened it up and we have you know you you talk Jim about the need we have a supervision looks like it's going to be a supervision. We'll have a great economy next year and I think we're gonna have a great economy in the third quarter and thank you for voting me for. Voting for me and Tony sixteen I hope you gonna do it again. Thanks sir thank you thank you very much you talk about a super V mistress a lot of people look at this is more like a case shaped recovery of people at the top. Who have a lot of stock surge are doing pretty. Well there's who is this is the but that would normally you only gotten half the jobs back George stocks are owned by everybody having you know and they talk about the stock market is so good that's 401K is I'm meeting people with. As long as it didn't sell when the market went down when we first realized the you know extent of this horrible thing from China. I mean these privileges some movement doing better than they were doing before the pandemic can't say that thirty of the day it's meaningful held on to this sucks. And remember this because I known as you say wealthy sure wealthy. You have. People that aren't wealthy but have. Done well because of the stock market. I have I've set records on the stock market even during the pandemic. And that doesn't happen by accident. I will tell you this if Joseph Biden ever got this position and that's a headwind in the stock market our stock market would be much higher but weren't for that. If Joseph but never got. And I think you'd have a depression the likes of which we've never seen in this country. If you look at his policies were wants a raise everybody's taxes you look at what he wants to do in terms of regulation and we wants to put. All of the regulations back on that I took off and then some and in many cases dubbed lit up. You'll have a depression the likes of which we haven't seen in this country and that doesn't affect big people it affects everybody it affects. A person that owns 101000 dollars worth of stock and IBM whatever company or maybe luck. We're having a tremendous. Thing in the stock market. And that's good for everybody. But people that aren't rich phone stuck and they have 401K is you take a look at the 401 case there in many cases better than they were before the pandemic game.
