-You were friends with
Donald Trump before he ran for president. And then you were one of
the people who predicted, based on knowing him and based
on knowing how he operated that he was going to
win the primary. -Key word is “was” friends. -Right, you were friends. Right, yes, I should
past-tense that. Yes. -Very, very past tense. -But when you were predicting
that he was going to do better than many were, was that
something — did he reach out? Was he happy to hear that on TV? -Yeah, right after he had won,
I think, one of the first primaries, I had been saying
I thought he was gonna win, and he calls me up. “Hey, Donny, how are you doing? Thanks for saying
I was gonna win. This is amazing. Can you believe
how incredible it is?” He goes, “It’s incredible.”
I go, “Yeah.” “They can’t find a replacement on ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’
for me.” That’s what he was focused on. The fact that — not that he’d
just won a primary. “It’s amazing. They can’t find a replacement
on ‘The Celebrity Apprentice.'” I’m like, “Dude, you’re running
for president. Time to move on a little bit.” -He’s not good at that. [ Laughter ] You did at one point
live in one of his buildings. So technically the person
who is currently President used to be your landlord. How was he as a landlord? -Great story. Ivanka and Jared
were in the building. And I had been in the building
for about five years, and I was moving out. And, you know, when you live in
a building, they have a security deposit. So I get a message
from one of the people that they want to keep $3,000 because there’s a crack
in the bathtub. So Donald and I get on
the phone together. I’m like, “Donald, I’ve never
taken a bath in five years. I’m a shower guy.” He goes, “I don’t care.
There’s a crack.” I’m like, “Dude, this is $3,000. You’re supposedly worth
$6 billion.” But here, this is 2010. The future President is
hondelling over 3 grand and a crack in a bathtub
that I never took a bath in. That is our president. -At the end,
who got the three grand? -I paid him. I just wasn’t —
you know, he just — -See, that’s my president.
He gets the money. [ Laughter ] We’re gonna get the wall
because he got that tub money. -You know what? I remember I
even said to him, “Why don’t I send
the $3,000 to charity?” He goes, “Nope.” -Wow, that sounds like
my president. [ Laughter ] You got to know Michael Cohen. You got to see their
relationship over the years. What was that relationship like
up close? -You know, I think one of the
reasons Trump is so panicked. I mean, he was his guy. Other than his kids,
he was front and center. Just to give you the kind of the
sensitivity of the relationship. I remember when Trump first did
his birther thing, and I, like everybody else,
was very offended by it. Start to see a guy
we didn’t know. And I remember on television,
I said, “This is racist.” And Michael
calls me up and says, “You know, Donald is very hurt. His feelings are hurt. Will you get on
the phone with him?” I go, “His feelings are hurt? He’s out calling our president,
you know, a non-U.S. citizen.” So I got on the phone.
We talked. But even then his skin was so
thin that even when he gets out and says these ridiculously
racist things, if somebody who knows who he
considers a friend challenges him,
his feelings were hurt. I’m sorry your feelings
were hurt. [ Laughter ] -There were reports this week
that Donald Trump asked Matt Whitaker to maybe put somebody else
on the Cohen investigation, someone that was more loyal
to the president. Do you think he is right to be
as worried as he seems to be about the Michael Cohen
of this all? -He should be very worried. I actually —
He should be really worried. [ Cheers and applause ] You know, unfortunately,
I think that the — the Mueller investigation is
gonna end up a little gray. Unless they have him
on the phone with Vlad. “Okay, Vlad,
I’ll take the Moscow tower, you get Ukraine and keep
the pee-pee tape to yourself.” I mean, unless there’s
literally that line, that’s gonna be great. What’s gonna take him down is — and Michael Cohen will be one of
the people very important to this, is I believe
the Southern district and they’re going to, what I
call R.I.C.O. him, which is the Racketeering Influence
Corrupt Organization Act, where if you’re at the top
of an organization that anybody in it is doing
illicit things, you go to jail. I think they will
take him apart. I think they will take
his buildings away. [ Cheers and applause ]
There will be nothing left. If you really think about it,
this guy showed up and has tried to undo what our
great-grandparents died for. You know, separation of state,
freedom of the press. And they’re going to make
an example of this guy the rest of his life,
and he should be panicked. You should be very afraid,
President Trump. -What about —
[ Applause ] Right now, versus a year ago,
two years ago, Michael Cohen, there is maybe a danger of
feeling sympathy towards him. You know, he has said —
and I believe it to be true — that the way
Donald Trump attacks him, there are threats on his family. No one wants that for anyone. Yet, at the same time, you know, Michael Cohen chose this path,
right? -Yeah. We’ve talked a lot. Michael is a friend of mine. And we’ve talked a lot
about this. And his explanation is —
look — he did wrong — he’s a good man
that did wrong things and he’s gonna go to jail
for it. And he should go to jail for it. But his explanation is
the intoxication of Trump and that you’re with him
and that he’s a celebrity and the cheering and —
almost like a cult. You get sucked into it. It’s not an excuse
by any standards. But that’s his explanation
for it. Look, his life
has been destroyed. I mean,
jail was just part of it. I mean, it’s — I’ve watched him go through this
front and center. And look, it’s hard for certain
people to have empathy, but when you know the person
and you know they have kids and you know their wife
and you know in their core they’re a decent person. So, people might disagree with
me, but that’s the way I feel. -No, and I should say, you know,
I think when you actually see the reality on the day
where you get sentenced and you do see
that a man has a family, that is very hard to see. I think that your humanity
kicks in at times like that. But I do think it’s important to
also remember that, you know, there were choices made
that lead you to that moment. -And he’s gonna answer for that. -You know, I think we all were
sort of talking about it and you’ve mentioned it,
the birtherism moment. And that was
a real moment for me and how I assessed Donald Trump. Looking at it now, though, of
course, there were other things. You know, he was — he was sued
for housing discrimination. He suggested the death penalty
for the Central Park Five. You know, he’s had a very
immoral business practice over the year. Do you think the New York
community was a little easy on Donald Trump over those days or just didn’t take him
seriously enough for a guy that was doing serious things that were having
real negative impact on people? -You know, I’m one of those
people who went through the arc. If you asked me what I thought
about him 15 years ago, would I want to be on Fox
with him, no. He was what I call
the great quantifiable liar. You’d say,
“How big is the building?” The building was 40 stories.
“74 stories.” And it’s funny when you’re
a real-estate developer. It’s not funny when you’re lying about immigration
and other things. So he was a guy —
you kind of thought he was a goofy real-estate guy,
maybe in on the joke. The birther thing showed
this ugly side, that either at worst
he’s a racist or even worse,
a transactional racist. And so to me, it was ugly,
and the reason he stuck with it, he is a transactional guy. It worked, if you think about
what he ran on. And what he ran on is — 20 —
what the wall is all about. 2045, guys with our color skin are gonna be minorities
in this country. People are terrified about that. So he ran on
“make America great again,” which is really
make America white again. He ran on, you know,
the Muslim ban. He ran on the Mexicans. And that’s why he stays with it, because with that crowd,
it works. And it’s so sad.
And it’s so tragic. That at the end of the day,
like or not like a president, he should just bring
us together. And this guy is the great
divider, so it’s sad.

  1. Follow the money. Justice put Al Capone in jail because of tax evasion. Why is not Trump already in jail, and why are not even his tax documents being reviewed?

  2. No this is not a thing. These people could have made another choice. And now they have to take the consequences. Come on. This person is not going to get the point.

  3. Donald Trump is a horrible excuse of a human being. I don’t know whether I should loathe him. Or dread him. Or both. Donald is the scum of earth,

  4. New York Courts Will Take Down Donald Trump…..and a socialist government will be in the WH and Congress….oh poor Donny Douchbag.



  6. Donny is your typical lib scumbag and native New Yorker. This pos should have all his wealth confiscated and redistributed don’t you want to help the 40 million illegal aliens? Typical hypocrisy from the left. Hey Donnie get fuckin lost.

  7. It will be known forever that 35% of Americans are racists. This base will never move all change even if Trump comes out to say he used them and it was all a lie, the base would still be unchanged.

  8. I'm from NC. I've heard people here rant and rave against crooked, fast talking, rude, know it all, slimy, NY Yankees my entire life. Now they love this asshole who, the quintessential carpetbagger. They love him with the full knowledge that his fellow NYers all hate his guts.

  9. Donny Deutsch have to be investigated do to his connection to Trump. Deutsch is the brain behind everything.


  11. Thank GOD someone is making sense. Think about it, Micheal Cohen , was one of his closest confidants, and TRUMP threw him under the bus and expected loyalty after that. So glad Micheal is singing like a bird. He seems like he is redeemed.

  12. Donny Deutsch is just a other conservative trust fund baby, busily, distancing himself from the TRUMP tower, upcoming disaster

  13. Your mouth to Gods ear. I hope he does penniless with his children rotting next to his cell. Traitor! Anyone that covers up that he’s a traitor is a traitor as well.

  14. I had a friend like Donnie-Boy here. I remember when he stuck that knife into my back, as he was smiling with his phony pretenses. What REALLY happened D-Boy? Did you just get tired of carrying Donald's jock strap, or maybe he didn't invite you to some party?? Dress it up anyway you want to Duche-Bag -you're a classless, low-life Trump-Hater. But then, that what got you on this pathetic excuse for a late night show – Seth Meyers – butt boy for the Left

  15. Wow, this was so great to hear from an x friend of his. Hope he is right about what will happen to him!

  16. Donnie Duetsch seems reasonable in this interview, but never forget he was a GOP conspiracy theorist for many years.

  17. Why does Donny Deutsch sound like a gangster movie or the name of an English speaking Nazi radio host broadcasting propaganda during WW2 Lol

  18. Let's hope Donny is right! One giggle: At 5:47 Donny says "Would I want to be in a foxhole with him? No." and closed captioning says "Would I want to be on Fox with him, no." I guess closed captioning knows Trump would NEVER be in a foxhole, even though by his own estimate he is "more military" than real service members in the military.

  19. Trump should have been held accountable for his crimes years ago! 
    What is wrong with the justice system that he was allowed to get away with everything for so long? 
    Something is SERIOUSLY wrong with the system!

  20. YES! YES! YES! Can't wait to see this take place. Couldn't happen to a nicer group of cons and crooks, the Trumps. (Great interview!)

  21. Donnie said he'd vote for Trump over Bernie Sanders. Let that sink in. I know he tried to walk it back, but he said it.

  22. I love Donny Deutsch; he speaks truth to power and always keeps it 100. Many people that knew Dumbo from long ago say they're kind of shocked with his behaviour today as Prez, but they all had to always know he was a habitual liar, racist and conman/crook his entire life Hard to hide. Im hoping and praying that Donny is right and that SDNY will file RICO charges against Dumbo, indict his creepy kids and Jared and put them all in jail when all is said and done. I'll bet Dumbo right now is in some way regretting he ever ran for Prez, with all the sh*t raining down on him. Any other normal 73-year old would buckle under this amount of stress and pressure and cry "Uncle". But Dumbo is batsh*t crazy and extremely narcissistic; he actually thinks his booboo doesnt stink, that he's attractive (Ewww); that he really weighs 243 lbs. and that he's invincible. He can play it off in public very well that absolutely nothing fazes him and it seems like it. But even as narcissistic and self-absorbed as he is, reality will soon set in and hit him like a ton of bricks. I dont think he'll do something outrageous like emerge from the WhiteHouse wearing only his underwear, with his hair all over his head, without his teeth and his spray tan, but I think that a very bad public meltdown is imminent.

  23. Everyone should also be ready for Dumbo (Trump) and the vile Rethugs to cheat, lie and pay for Dumbo to win in 2020. It's IMPERATIVE that Dumbo wins or he knows he will. wind up indicted by SDNY and go to jail. Dumbo and the RNC will pay for Rethug Govs, SecOfStates to fudge vote tallies, hack voter machines, suppress voters, etc, and will do anything to keep Dumbo in office. They are plotting and planning right this minute.
    GET ON IT DNC!!!!

  24. After the trump family looses all they have? and end up working at Walmart? That would be great…and taxpayers don't have to pay for their incarceration they can work for minimum wages

  25. I am a Hispanic Latino son of two Mexican immigrants and I must say I like the way he broke it down that Donald Trump wants to make America great again which is cool I'm for it but the way this guy expressed that they want to make it white again and just being only whites it's racism because United States is so diverse with all nationalities in opportunities there should not be a problem why we can't all live together and it comes from home becomes from the Baseline it's sad that the future Generations will have to now figure out how to divide this country world peace is important

  26. Donny was right so far! Let's hope SDNY does a great job and save our nation from these greedy traitors and criminal Republican McConnell mafia for the Mercer's and the Koch 's!

  27. White people's biggest fear= out numbered! Why? Well if you been killing hanging raping stealing making all the laws yo favor whites etc and now those same ppl will soon out number you… well duhh. Its guilt from all the heinous bullshit yall been doing. That's why they wont make guns and machine gun type weapons illegal. White folks know they are dirty! God and the universe work in mysterious ways. Bring us over here against our will… and now pay the price! Lmmfao

  28. BS! When a president or candidate says he was born in Hawaii after saying for decades he was born in another country, and you question it, is that racist? Ted Cruz at least admitted he was born in Canada and his father was not a citizen. The disqualified him but enough people didn't seem to care about our founding document. It's all about faith and allegiance to the Constitution and not about any man, black, brown or white.

  29. Why would anyone ever be friends with Trump? This highlights how we know Trump isn’t wealthy. I’m sure he has a negative net worth. Trump can live without his money, he can’t live without Ivanka.😂

  30. Liberal fools like this scum bag and the dumb asses who follow him have absolutely nothing positive to add to the country. Hey want open borders, infanticide, high taxes on businesses, and slowing down job growth with their asinine fantasies. It’s too bad hard working Americans have to share the same oxygen with these morons

  31. Donnie is your typical elistist lib New Yorker. Nothing new here.
    Pos needs to meet an illegal alien alien like Kate steinle did.

  32. I know nothing, but I think that Trump will not get a slap on the wrist for anything. Trump has screwed up everything that he has ever done, yet and has rewarded for all of it.

  33. The Douchbag is responsible for the crack in the tub! It happened when he was renting, otherwise, he would of check tub damage on the check-in form. Douchbag has no credibility!

  34. Wow these 2 guys are very stupid. Jeeeezus !!! On the contrary Trump got the $3000 for the lousy crack in the bathtub and that makes him a shrewd and strict busines person so Lets be happy he is our president !!
