DONALD TRUMP (PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES): When I watched sleepy-eyes Chuck Todd the other day saying, “Why is the president giving up so much and North Korea is giving up nothing?” This is at the beginning of Meet the Press, which this guy shouldn't even be on this show. So I said to myself, well, wait a minute, see it's just the opposite. I haven't given up anything. I haven't even talked about it. I haven't given up anything.
STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Well, that makes it easy.
TRUMP: I watched them last night, I'll tell you what. I watched leaking, lying Comey last night and I did -- I hated to do it. One of the reasons, people say, “You’re still looking good, Mr. President, how do you do it?” Well, one of the things I've been able to do, which is something I never thought I had the ability, I would always watch when I was -- now frankly, I don't have time for two reasons: there's too much and I don't have time. But I would watch, whether it's good or bad, I would always watch. I have an ability, I don't watch NBC anymore. They're as bad as CNN. I don't -- and by the way I made them a fortune with The Apprentice. Think of that one.
