Donald Trump Talks Media Coverage, Polls and His Vocal Transformation

-Donald, this is getting real.
This is — -Yeah, it’s getting real.
I agree. -You still have time.
Do you still want to do this? I mean, there’s time. -We’re doing well. It’s been really a lot of fun, and it’s an amazing movement
all over the country. It’s been incredible, so, no, it’s been an honor
for me, I have to say. -There’s probably kids
watching you right now, if they’re at home watching. They do stay up late
and watch our show. Why should they want to grow up
and be president? -Well, I think you want to grow
up and be president because you want to help people. And you want to help people. There’s tremendous problems that
people in this country have, and all over the world. And if you want to help people, there’s no better position to
do it from than the presidency. So we can do a lot of good. [ Cheers and applause ] -Did you always see yourself — Did you always see yourself
getting into politics? -I really never did. I probably wouldn’t have done many of the shows
that I’ve done over the years if I ever thought. But I never thought
this would happen. Four years ago, I really,
seriously considered it. And they renewed — As you know, they wanted me
to stay and do “The Apprentice,” and I was doing
all of these jobs and — But I really wanted to do it, and ultimately
I decided I’d wait. Let’s see how things go
with the country, and things only got worse, and I decided to do it. And, you know,
I gave up a lot by doing this. This is a tough thing.
There’s nothing easy about it. I’ve always heard doing this
is a very, very difficult thing, but nobody knows
how tough it is. -It is, right?
I mean, it’s been a long — -It’s grueling.
It’s grueling and — But at the same time,
very satisfying. You know,
you see what’s happening and you see what’s going on,
so it’s very satisfying. But it’s a grueling process. -Do you think
your business background helps you with campaigning? Like, if you have, like — you have to target, like, say
you need women from 25 to 40, you need that age group,
do you target that? -Well, I think where it helps — [ Laughter ] -That’s good, right?
Is that too business-y? -I’m trying
to figure that one out. -I’m reading —
I’m halfway through your book. [ Laughter ] It’s pretty good.
it’s pretty good. -We’re gonna get that one soon. But, you know, yeah, I think
business will always help. It helps
from a country standpoint. You know, it’s interesting. When I was doing the primaries, I spent less money
than other people, and I did better
than other people. And that’s what we want to do
for the country. We want to spend less money
and do better. [ Cheers and applause ] And I think we can do that. I think we can do that. -We were talking about how long
and grueling it is. What has changed from when you first
started running to now? -Well, I think the press has
become more and more vicious. You know, it was interesting. We started off with 17, and you had some of them
in here, and one by one by one — -We had about 15 on here. -You had about 15. Maybe not all 17,
but you had a lot of them. But we had 17 people. And as it got down, you know, I do notice there’s a big
difference with the media. I also say, though, there’s
even more love out there. People want this to happen. They really want it to happen. And you see what’s going on,
even today with the polls where the polls are so good. We just got a great poll
from Colorado. Normally, a Republican wouldn’t
do particularly well there, and we’re leading in Colorado
and we’re leading in Iowa. We’re leading in Ohio
and Florida. We’re leading all over,
and it’s been amazing. It’s been really amazing. -Do you pay attention
to the polls? -Oh, I love the polls.
-You do? -But I don’t pay attention — If I’m losing or lagging,
I’d never mention polls. [ Laughter ] Believe me. Only when I’m winning. -I’ve noticed that —
little changes. I think your voice has changed
a little bit. Because I’ve done — I hate to break it to you, but I’ve done
an impression of you once or twice…on this show. [ Cheers and applause ] -You have. -Thank you
for letting me do that. -And a very good impression.
-Thank you. But when you first started
running, [As Trump]
you were very high-voiced. Your voice was very high, China — You’d say “China.” A lot of pointing — very high. [ Normal voice ]
And then you got into a stage where you were just yelling. [As Trump] You were yelling
into the microphone at people and you were yelling
at everyone! [ Normal voice ] And, like,
you don’t even need the mic. [ As Trump ] And now, you’re
more of, like, a smoky, silky… [ Laughter ] [ Cheers and applause ] [ Laughs ] Like a Donald Trump/Alec Baldwin
impression type of voice. Yeah, that’s what I see
you’re doing. And I got to kindly thank you for giving us the material
that we’re doing. [ Laughter ] It’s been amazing to follow
and exciting because you say
some shocking things. [ Laughter ] I can’t even believe. -But I’m trying not to anymore. -Oh, yeah. See, that’s changing. Yeah. [ Cheers and applause ] That’s what I’m talking about,
so, yeah.

100 thoughts on “Donald Trump Talks Media Coverage, Polls and His Vocal Transformation

  1. I appreciate this interview so much, it’s unbiased and It really shows Trump in a different light. He seems to be hated upon a lot and I think it all comes down to the media portraying him in a bad light. I myself find myself in the middle when it comes to politics as I can agree with certain things from both sides

  2. Hard to grasp this was only 2 years ago, its like complete different reality now, if you dont bash Trump, they bash you.

  3. The 35k likes is the Republicans and the 18k dislikes are all the Democratics…. I’m sorry I had to comment this… I couldn’t help it.

  4. I know how to get people to vote for a candidate the candidate just needs to help the people who need help like the people who can change things are the people who are honest lol

  5. Trump is such a baby he's sooooo racist he's a rotten Cheeto he's sooooo orange kids are not learning from this dummy trump is not helping people what so ever!

  6. After I started to become more politically aware, and stray away from the more mainstream media, (which is not just liberal media, no). I started to actually listen to what trump has said, stoped focusing on all the controversy and look at his views and policy’s. I actually now think he is a nice guy and a above average president. He has not started any nation building wars. He isn’t droning and bombing the middle east. His red tape cutting policy and his tax policy’s are great. His hardline approach to North Korea might of actually helped, and yes he isn’t afraid of trying to be politically correct. He is not racist, or sexist, or homophobic, he focuses on peoples values, and does not treat people differently based on their identity. He has waved a lgbt flag, and never actually said anything homophobic. His rise to power may of actually helped curb the grow of the alt right, because in europe conservatism backed down into becoming more liberal, pushing people in to more radical ideology’s. He condemned Antifa, and the Alt Right. I mean he is not perfect, his tariff policy is not great, and sometimes he maybe should shut up esbeshly when it comes to foreign diplomacy. He’s kind of a hypocrite, and is way too egotistical. He’s 90 something and acts like it sometimes. And if all the allegations coming up lately are true, fine, kick him out, but I think its still funny how much the mainstream media warps him as this literal nazi. I’m just saying. It is important to look into these things yourself.

  7. I feel like Trump has been,is,and still will do good for the United States.He has reasonably good plans and ideas,just that the words he uses to translate said ideas may come off wrongly.Which is why many are quick to judge him,or jsut full on butt hurt with everything he says does or plans to do.

  8. Before ALL the late night shows bashed him every single night. The swap creatures show who their true colors are, a bunch of leftist mentally ill socalists.

  9. Now what happened to this Donald Trump is in a better position he's the president now but no you don't want to invite him on your show but when Obama was President you invite him on your show all the time come on people can we have a double standards around here

  10. Se o TRUMP e do mal; então o OBAMA é psicopata…. o que OBAMA fez e no mínimo .. canalhice … um homem sem nenhum temor por Deus! OBAMA sente satisfação quando um cristão e ENFORCADO em determinados países!!! ISSO é comportamento de gente com um mínimo de humanidade????

  11. I'm glad he treated trump fairly. We should be inclusive to all even with opposing views. I'm gay and definitely don't agree with Trump's views, but I would like to include everyone and treat people as human beings, rather than political views.

  12. "As a businessman do you think it will help you? Like targetting that age of group of like 25-40? Is that too businessy?"
    No thats not too business-ie Jimmy Fallon but it does make you sound like you have the political knowledge of an elementary school student.

  13. I don't think its that hes not being biased, I think that he's intentionally avoiding polarizing topics and as a result he sounds like the stupid silly idiot that he is (and that people like). He's appealing to the lowest common denominator, which honestly as much as I hate to say it because this video really pissed me off initially, I can't blame him for. It's a comedy show and is supposed to be lighthearted.

  14. I’m glad that people actually applauded Mr. President where as the other video almost no one applauded.

  15. Don't get me wrong I love Jimmy Fallon but this the interview I hated the most but at least he wasn't being rude and respecting all his choice

  16. This is the reason why Jimmy Fallon is the king of late night.
    This is why Jimmy Fallon gets awesome things like being able to literally unveil the Nintendo Switch.
    He's a great Late Night host, who's mission for his show is to just be a silly, funny escape from a hard day. He even got to tussle Trump's hair.

  17. In my opinion trump is very humble. Sadly when we hate someone we refuse to see their good sides. But I personally like him

  18. I like Fallon, he doesn't get very political, and when he has guests like Trump, he is fair and doesn't attack them. Even though his views probably differ from Trump's views, he is able to be serious, respectful and he can joke around and make Trump feel welcome, not attacked. He also didn't cut up what Trump was saying, which I really like about him.

  19. Fuck u your wife is not from here .take her where she is from u sorry shit u suck for a president. Orange shit.

  20. Jimmy still showed respect to the president. Any other liberal propaganda show; Kimmel, Ellen, The View, etc. would have been taking jabs at him the whole way.

  21. The things Trump says which are considered to be "shocking" today, weren't shocking before the leftist infestation/infiltration, and the introduction of political correctness.
