MIAMI (CBSMiami) – As the countdown clock winds down to this year’s presidential election, CBS4’s Jim DeFede sat down with Republican nominee Donald Trump on Sunday afternoon at Trump’s resort in Doral.
Part of the interview included a discussion about Trump’s belief that he will win, his thoughts about the women who have accused him of sexual misconduct and the First Amendment. The following is the transcript of that conversation.
DEFEDE: Are you going to win?
TRUMP: I really do. I think we are going to win. I think there will be some Brexit involved, a lot of people saying, there’s a lot of people, a lot of support out there. And I think we are going to do very well.
DEFEDE: You said yesterday during your speech at Gettysburg that one of the things you would do after this election is that you would sue the women who have made the allegations against you. What would you say to a person that says if you were in fact to win this election you should put that aside because you should be more worried about the fate of the country than defending your honor.
TRUMP: Well I would be more worried about the fate of the country and I will be very worried about the fate of the country and I am right now. We owe $20 trillion, we have a military thats depleted, we have Obamacare, that’s a disaster which we are going to repeal and replace. taxes are way too high and she wants to raise them so
DEFEDE: You’re going to take up your time with women who,,,,.
TRUMP: We will see about that but what is said is fiction. By the way, just so that you understand this is just fiction. This was made up out of thin air. This never happened, so we will see what we will see. But I am most worried about the fate of our country.
DEFEDE: In the past you have talked about wanting to amend laws to and rework things to make it easier to sue. Do you think there is too much protection allowed in the First Amendment?
TRUMP: Well in England they have a system where you can actually sue if someone says something wrong. Our press is allowed to say whatever they want and get away with it. And I think we should go to a system, where if they do something wrong, I’m a big believer, tremendous believer, in the freedom of the press. No one believes it stronger than me. But if they make terrible, terrible mistakes and those mistakes are made on purpose to injure people, I’m not just talking about me, I’m talking anybody else, then yes, I think you should have the ability to sue them.
