Trump Responds To National Review: They Want To Get Publicity, It's A "Dying Paper"

BY Real Clear Politics

Donald Trump responds to what are called conservative intellectuals writing a collective piecegiving their reasons why the Republican frontrunner is not a conservative and should not be the Republican presidential nominee. Late Thursday night at a hastily convened press conference in Las Vegas, Trump appeared and told reporter National Review is a "dying people" that "not many people read" or "think about."

"The National Review is a dying dying paper," Trump said. "It's circulation is way down. Not very many people read him anymore. People don't even think about The National Review. I guess they want to get a little publicity. But that's a dying paper. I got to tell you, it's pretty much a dead paper."

TRANSCRIPT

0:00
and Jonathan what do you what do you see as the primary issues in the democratic
0:05
race now what what if one of the top two that it'll come down to i think it's
0:10
really going to be about Wall Street mostly with electability is kind of the
0:16
second issue on wall street hilary is a little bit exposed because she's taken
0:22
all of these speaking fees from big Wall Street firms and I think you'll see
0:26
Sanders returned to that over and over again but you know elected trumps press
0:32
conference that started an hour late he's taking a couple questions seriously
0:38
they just want to use the dying it's got its circulation is way down
0:44
not very many people read him people don't even think about it so I guess
0:50
that's a dying paper
0:54
pretty much I get pretty much of a national many phone calls from
1:14
establishment from people generally speaking conservatives Republicans don't
1:20
want to come under team the polls have just come out as you saw 11 points
1:25
another one came up by 10 points and you look at the Carolina you look at forty
1:33
eight 48 points some way up so we're getting calls from everyone but it's
1:40
it's actually amazing I'm actually surprised today it was very striking a
1:51
deal makers make deals with China I every day and that's what the country
2:04
needs is a deal-maker somebody who really knows how to make deals we gotta
2:07
make a country rich again
2:09
trillion dollars that would be 21 trillion because of the bad budget deal
2:13
that they made we need to deal maker we need somebody that knows what they're
2:17
doing we have a budget politicians have no clue that's why i think im so I and
2:22
all the plants and people are not necessarily due to poor some through
2:29
because we're not always gonna get along with the democrats but you know i watch
2:34
run over again and different you'll do a great job
2:37
they were very different kinds of people and yet they were able to make deals and
2:41
the country was really singing it was doing well and we need a little bit of
2:46
that and as you said he's a very strange person nobody likes this got republican
2:53
senators who have won endorsement from one senator number one number two
2:58
wasn't born in this country big problems Aug overhang nobody knows absolutely
3:04
nobody knows they're looking right now they're trying to figure it out
3:08
many lawyers have commented you can even run for president he's got a problem
3:11
then of course he's got a problem with the fact that he took money from Goldman
3:15
Sachs he took money from Citibank you didn't report it that's a problem just
3:19
got a lot of props to lie to get her ass when I'm not sure for a long time she
3:28
called she said I'd love to endorse you what you doing is amazing it's a
3:31
movement I mean you see that from the cover of Time magazine which really was
3:35
a very very good but there soon and Sarah Palin chrome and it was just
3:39
expected to get Sarah Palin she backed him with the Senate and frankly he gives
3:46
a great influence and it's an honor to have her into it
3:53
no real whatever happens happens with the bigger problems right now the Oscars
4:08
many many many people from the party have called many people that are very
4:18
concerned that I guess you would go them in some cases establishment but people
4:24
calling to see what's happening I mean you look at the polls and you see that
4:27
when you're up by 28 points in one state in 20 points in another state and 1 I'll
4:32
adjust comes out today 2001 Europe 10 when you are doing very well it has to
4:41
be brought together and I think the party can be brought in September I read
4:47
your plan on the second amendment every word of it but it doesn't square was
4:50
your class positions that sea change happened over a period of time and I
4:56
just like ronald reagan was real it as a young man and he became more and more
5:03
conservative but I feel very strongly about the Second Amendment and I think
5:06
even more so with what's happening when you look at Paris when you look at
5:10
california when you look at these horrible things are happening all over
5:13
the place where people need protection we have to get protection Second
5:17
Amendment is very important my two sons by the way are members of the NRA their
5:21
expert hunters and everything else and they feel very very strongly
5:25
never voted in a presidential
5:38
cherry
5:55
speakers to his authenticity because it's not appropriate in my opinion
6:05
however I will say that solve his problem as to whether or not he's
6:10
actually even allowed to run for president he was born in Canada he was a
6:15
citizen of Canada fifteen 15 months ago he was a citizen and that he said he
6:21
didn't know that he didn't know that he was a citizen of Canada he was a senator
6:26
from Texas a citizen of Canada and he said he didn't know about it he said he
6:30
didn't know about Goldman Sachs and he didn't know that Citibank when it came
6:35
to his financial disclosure so it seems a little bit hard to believe I hope he's
6:42
authentic giving to charity of you should give I would assume nothing to
6:49
charity
6:50
tithing when he was right
6:53
I have to look at and even bird watchers and hikers vote for you because I'm
7:10
gonna keep it going to make sure you know if you look at the federal and
7:14
right now they're a mess
7:16
absolute mess I'm hearing more and more attractive when asked to speak to it
7:20
because he hunter and being a member of the NRA but he is a long time as well as
7:26
they tell me about the lands and the lands are absolutely has done hundreds
7:32
we started very young to be able to do that I think last week at the outdoors
7:40
hunting fishing and frankly anything else just kept us out of a lot of other
7:44
trouble we'll see what kids can get into these days to have also operate like
7:47
that is important so keeping public lands opening making sure that maintain
7:51
making sure they're not sold off to the highest bidder and turned private so
7:55
very important issue for us and we do it all the time when I weekend warriors
7:58
what we do it once every month we talked about it twenty years we do this stuff
8:03
every weekend we're out there all the time were out whenever we possibly can
8:06
with vacation we live the lifestyle of the traditional want to make sure we
8:09
preserve you 280 agent technology and state kids
8:17
page in the outdoors well it is about getting youth into it's about making
8:21
sure you get the next generation and a lot of the industry's especially among
8:27
the bears into it that way baby bears into it and just keeping the great
8:31
American tradition that is the outdoors alive and well it means so much to us it
8:34
whenever I can get someone else the woods for whatever reason it may be show
8:38
them something else that never had those people turn around the greatest
8:42
experiences I've ever had to make sure that those traditions with their kids
8:45
and their kids for me if as you said you so low in the polls ahead of the one
8:57
reason he deserves to be it takes commercials about his training dollars
9:02
he's always doing commercials about me what he should do is focus trestle uses
9:06
less names uses lasers shame if he weren't you should focus on the other
9:17
seven people that are ahead of him before he gets to me against you
9:24
jet jet is James a loser
9:30
PSD to blame the president for pts well I think she's you look at the problem
9:45
it's a tremendous problem of our young people coming back from the Middle East
9:49
and you have a president who's on top and you know I guess everything so to
9:53
start something but I was really wanted to get a lot of that has to do with
10:06
voters who didn't vote for your go for eight years ago
10:08
say they will support you now how are you making sure that those people
10:12
actually show up to february first or february second then I think it's very
10:20
exciting and i appreciate the bold 11 points so we'll see what happens but
10:24
have a great to see what happens
10:27
thank you donald Trump has a speaking engagement and Las Vegas that he's gonna
10:41
do now
10:42
Tom Tom Davis there's donald Trump of all people saying quote the party has to
10:49
be healed and so I guess you'll be getting your phone call from donald
10:54
Trump soon about how to heal the Republican Party you know why I've got
10:58
to tell you they didn't he know specifics but he had a good bearing on
11:06
this and the average person who's sitting out there you know alienated at
11:10
this point
11:11
jonathan alter he claims that many people as he put it many people from the
11:18
party are calling him and never gives any names and that perfect joe mccarthy
11:22
style and so you know maybe they are maybe they are lucky I mean I agree with
11:29
the congressman is it the takeaway here
11:32
is that you know Trump is increasingly having a bearing that some people some
11:38
misguided people will mistake for being presidential especially when you have a
11:43
press corps there's apparently made up of a Hollywood Reporter an NRA reporter
11:48
a you know conservation you know industry representative couple people
11:57
who are only interested in the horse race and maybe only one or two decent
12:02
questions and a whole bunch and we wonder why trump has done so well I
12:07
think the press and we've had some very good reporting it especially you know I
12:12
think from some of the dogged reporters at this network and a couple of the
12:16
others but by and large the press is not doing his job in explaining to people
12:21
what the stakes are in a trump presidency what this would actually mean
12:26
that this man became president United States that's the only issue the rest of
12:31
it the back and forth the polls the press shouldn't be asking questions and
12:36
such numbers about those kind of horse race issues focus on this man as a
12:41
potential president we didn't see it tonight and that press conference
12:44
