MICHAEL WOLFF (AUTHOR): My credibility is being questioned by a man [Donald Trump] who has less credibility than perhaps anyone who has ever walked on earth at this point.

ALEX JONES (HOST): And just the lies that President Trump is the most dishonest, discredited person in history, doing 95 percent of what he said he'd do. At least getting it done or trying to get it done. And then he’s -- says he's changed his mind on Afghanistan, I think that's wrong. He's not doing the stuff he said he'd do on vaccines, that's wrong. He needs to move forward and he is starting to move forward to get things cleared up for [Julian] Assange. That’s happening with the grand juries and all of it being dismissed, and so, yeah, I guess he’s starting to deliver there. OK. He's done some other stuff.
But, I mean -- who delivered on their promises like this? George Washington? Once Thomas Jefferson got in he wasn't so much as a libertarian as he was before. He was still a pretty good guy, but he flip flopped on like 80 percent, so you can't say Jefferson, even though he was a really smart guy. A lot of his writings influenced me but -- I mean, who did what they'd said they'd do like this? Abraham Lincoln was an occultist and a weirdo. Had all sorts of health problems and drank mercury seltzers every morning just so he could stop the disease he had of his bones growing over his joints and his nerves. I forget the disease, I was reading a book about it a few years ago, very interesting.
Hitler did what he said he'd do. A lot of times evil actually will do what it says, but then you have to actually -- what are the promises? Are they good and is it being followed through on? And the answer is yes. The answer is yes. Who else has been following through on their promises? Vladimir Putin. From what he does politically, very honorable. And they’ll probably have that, “Oh, see he’s a Russian agent.” No, I’m an agent of the truth. Vladimir Putin is the only other modern statesman that delivers on what he says he will do. And now it’s back in vogue because of people like Nigel Farage, and Ron Paul, and Vladimir Putin, and Donald Trump.
