"That would help the economy dramatically, in my opinion," Hannity encouraged.
"Immediately," Trump agreed.
On enforcing the Iran deal:
Again, Trump contains multitudes. While he likes to "honor deals," he thinks this deal would lead to a "nuclear holocaust." Still, he says he would be able to fix the Iran deal to make it enforceable to an intimidating degree.
Hannity: "Let me go back to Iran. You said, 'They will do what I tell them.' How do you make them do what you say?"
Trump: "They will know I'm not playing games. And you know what, I hate to inherit a bad deal. And I know some of my compatriots said, 'We won't honor the deal.' That's a little tough. I like to honor deals."
Hannity: "They have the money."
Trump: "The problem is, by the time—if I make it—by the time I get there, they will be very rich because Obama will have given them all of these many billions of dollars, et cetera, et cetera. However, all contracts—I study contracts. I am—in golf, I say I'm a plus-five at contracts. I study contracts. No matter how bad this contract is, I will make this contract be enforced to such an extent that they will not be able to do it. And then I will do things that you won't believe. But listen: It is so important that they not have nuclear weapons. The problem with this deal is, they will have them, and all other surrounding countries are going to be forced to get them, too. You're going to have nuclear holocaust!"
On fighting ISIS:
Recently, Trump has been touting himself as the "most militaristic" candidate in the presidential race—perhaps to atone for his past offenses toward U.S. prisoners of war. He has simultaneously been touting that he is the only GOP candidate to oppose the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
His solution for stopping the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria? Send in ground troops, "take the oil" in areas controlled by the terrorist group, and "put a ring" of U.S. soldiers around the oil supplies. As Tim Mak explains, this is not a feasible strategy.
On whether he will continue tweeting from within the White House:
"A lot has been made over your Twitter account," Hannity said. "If you won the presidency, would you still stay on Twitter, would you be out on Twitter at one in the morning tweeting?"
"Probably a little bit less," Trump said. "I do get my point across. For years, if somebody did bad stuff to me, I couldn't fight back. Now I have @RealDonaldTrump and I can sort of tweet some bad stuff about them, and if people like it, it's all over the world!"
On "this whole thing with Megyn Kelly":
"I tell you what, Ivanka came to me the other day, it was very interesting. And you know, with this whole thing with Megyn Kelly, and it's really, in theory, it's not a big deal. But Ivanka said: 'Dad, you love women. You cherish women.' She said that. she used the word 'cherish.' She said: 'You respect women. You have so many women working for you—probably more women executives than male executives.' She said, 'Dad, you've gotta let people know how much you adore women, how you'll take care of them.' And right after she said that, Jeb Bush came out with that horrible statement, where essentially he's not going to take care of women's health issues. And I said: 'Wow, that's incredible. That's a really stupid statement to make.' But Ivanka is so much into that whole issue of women's health and women, and she is my guide on that whole subject."
Many, if not all of Trump's answers to Hannity's questions could ostensibly have been followed up with a, "What?" or, alternately, "What do you mean by 'things that you won't believe'?" Luckily for Trump (and for Fox's ratings), Hannity approaches the Trump campaign with more credulity than perhaps any other political reporter in the United States. So unlike last week, the wrath of Trump was not invoked Tuesday or Wednesday night, and Roger Ailes could sleep a little easier.
