0-08

course I reached out to the Chairman

0-11

Republican National Committee Reince Priebus Reince Priebus today and I

0-17

think we have enough mister mister

0-19

Reince Priebus welcome to the eib network

0-21

search great to have you here

0-23

the complete honor to be on your show

0-24

rush thank you for having me you bet I I

0-27

want to talk to her number reasons but

0-29

first and foremost on election night i

0-31

was one of the many who stayed up till

0-34

beyond three o'clock to listen to mr.

0-36

Trump's speech and he was effusive in

0-40

his praise for you and your you're

0-42

essentially creating the ground game

0-45

operation for him to get out the vote

0-47

effort and it was such a shock to a lot

0-51

of people and it turns out we gonna make

0-54

it we look at the magnitude of this win

0-57

  1. Priebus it's stunning the

0-59

republican party turns out has more

1-02

power in Washington and throughout the

1-03

country in terms of selective offices at

1-06

all levels than any time since the

1-07

nineteen twenties Hillary Clinton had

1-11

six million fewer voters than Barack

1-13

Obama had in 2012 we we have since Obama

1-18

campaigned for her on the basis that her

1-22

election meant the continuation of his

1-24

legacy and agenda we say that it was

1-26

repudiated deep the American people

1-29

showed up in droves and repudiated the

1-31

Democrat Party agenda and it was a shock

1-34

to me too

1-35

Trump winning was a shock to many not me

1-37

but it was a shock to many and the depth

1-39

of the Democrat loss was really a shock

1-42

to everybody

1-43

well you predicted by the way you put

1-46

your neck out back and may you protected

1-48

this you felt it and you said it a long

1-51

time ago and you know really just comes

1-53

back to a couple things one you're right

1-56

the ground operation at the RNC was the

1-58

biggest operation i think either

2-00

national parties have ever put together

2-01

we had made way more people on the

2-05

ground and anyone understood or give

2-07

credit to us for we put over a hundred

2-10

and twenty million and data

2-11

understanding

2-12

everything about voters what beer they

2-14

drink what car they drive what motivates

2-16

people how many kids they have and all

2-19

of that information made a difference

2-21

but let's just put that aside the

2-23

reality is that we had the right

2-24

candidate Donald Trump was the candidate

2-27

that authentically captured the vehicle

2-32

where everyone wanted to go as far as

2-35

being the change candidate but being a

2-37

candidate that people actually believed

2-39

would go to Washington and do it he said

2-42

by when he said drain the swamp and he

2-43

said drain the swamp you know if anyone

2-46

else said that at least a lot of these

2-48

folks that were running it may not be

2-50

believable because there's you know

2-52

politicians a lot of things but when he

2-54

said we're going to drain the swamp

2-56

people believe that he represented

2-58

something bigger than the day-to-day

3-00

stories and Politico and other magazines

3-04

that just have to fill space and that

3-07

was authentic because it was a change

3-09

election we had a change candidate that

3-12

was authentically making the case and

3-14

we're running against someone who spent

3-16

their entire life and made millions upon

3-20

millions of dollars in politics it was a

3-23

just a classic case of momentum and

3-28

running with the flow of the river and

3-31

having the infrastructure in place to

3-32

capture the moment now I would be remiss

3-34

if I didn't mention something i was

3-37

struck honestly uh by the complete

3-41

180-degree turnaround by my speaker Ryan

3-45

yesterday in his effusive praise for

3-47

Trump i mean i i'm not making things up

3-50

here there were many many Republicans

3-53

not you don't misunderstand i'm gonna

3-56

elected Republicans who really thought

3-59

Trump was going to finish this party by

4-01

losing in the biggest landslide since

4-03

Barry Goldwater and they made no bones

4-05

about it and they day they made public

4-08

their lack of effort or desire to help

4-10

him and they lost some of those a couple

4-13

of people lost ya when Trump comes

4-15

around and wins why all of a sudden he's

4-17

the greatest candidate we've ever had

4-18

but they didn't think that until he won

4-22

and this right the

4-25

this is obvious to people now I know

4-27

everybody wants to get on a winning

4-28

trade and everybody wants to shine our

4-30

light of a of of a winner but is this

4-34

belief in trauma is it do you think it's

4-38

I know it's putting you on the spot is

4-39

it legitimate with some of these people

4-41

who disavowed trump not just elected to

4-43

we got some conservative so-called media

4-45

people that just yeah none of this was

4-47

supposed to happen and they didn't want

4-49

it to happen there were Some mr.

4-51

Priebus hoping for a republican

4-53

landslide loss

4-54

yeah don't know question i mean there

4-57

were there are some there's a few out

5-01

there that really had no excuse doing

5-03

what they did and I've talked about that

5-07

and I i agree with you on that but i can

5-09

tell you i think it's important for

5-12

Republicans to come together now

5-14

regardless and then it is good to show a

5-16

positive public face and that we do get

5-20

this party together and we are together

5-22

or bigger like you said were bigger than

5-24

ever but it's important that leaders and

5-27

elected officials get i get on board but

5-30

it in regard to the other comment but i

5-32

will tell you that in regard to speaker

5-34

Ryan totally totally on board and

5-38

wanting to work with president-elect rom

5-41

they just had a positive meeting just

5-44

right next door

5-45

I just saw the nothing about to go and

5-47

he's genuine it's totally genuine he and

5-49

by the way that especially you know the

5-51

last few weeks he's been on the campaign

5-53

trail with my pants he would have been I

5-56

know firsthand because I know what the

5-57

scheduling and the planning what he was

5-59

planning on being at the rally in

6-01

waukesha with president-elect romp and

6-04

then of course you sunday night he put

6-06

out the statement and and continued

6-08

throughout the point of all this is that

6-10

I i agree with your assessment some of

6-14

the things that went on I thought were

6-15

wrong and I made it clear that they were

6-18

wrong and they I think some people were

6-21

very shocked you know I was in I was on

6-24

the side of understanding what my job

6-27

was and I did it and I was loyal and and

6-30

we built the biggest operation we could

6-32

build and it helped uh and we got it

6-35

done i'm i'm proud of the work that we

6-37

did but I'm

6-38

out of our candidates well i don't i

6-39

don't want to speak out of school but I

6-41

I know how people tend to sometimes hear

6-44

people in politics and I just want to

6-46

vouch for what mr. Reince Priebus just said he

6-49

came with Scott Spicer became to do to

6-52

meet me here in the up shut the Sean

6-54

Spicer back in the spring it was it was

6-56

April or May and I can tell everybody

6-58

you have been on board the train of the

7-01

nominee from the get-go you've never

7-03

been anywhere near trying to undermine

7-05

anybody's candidacy when whoever the

7-08

nominee was that you were all in and let

7-10

you know I just want people know you're

7-12

not just saying this today

7-13

ya know and and you know what that

7-15

that's the job of a competent national

7-17

party and you look at the DNC is going

7-20

through it it's a total mass because

7-22

number one they're they're not they have

7-24

had a lot of problems lately but they've

7-26

been trying to tip the scales and doing

7-27

all the things that I know a lot of

7-28

grassroots people are always worried

7-31

about and I was trying to explain to

7-33

people that and I understand some of the

7-35

negative mystique that a national party

7-37

brings with it but I just tell people

7-39

there's nothing controversial about a

7-42

national party that has act together on

7-44

the ground with data it's a lot of

7-46

boring stuff that I'm in charge of most

7-48

of it's not exciting but we all can at

7-51

least understand that if we're confident

7-53

on the mechanics and we're confident on

7-55

the work that we need to do and we're

7-57

not playing favorites but we're offering

7-59

our work to our eventual nominee to take

8-02

advantage of that work product we can be

8-05

more successful we could not win

8-07

elections without a competent National

8-09

Party as irritating as it sometimes the

8-12

party can be two people it's a necessary

8-14

function that we we serve well yeah that

8-18

that the irritation oftentimes the

8-20

rooted in promises on the campaign trail

8-23

that don't evaluate the governance but

8-24

look I wish little time constraint and i

8-28

do want to ask you about one other thing

8-30

that we are hearing a lot of and I'm i

8-33

just want to admit to you that I've got

8-35

my flags are pink right now they haven't

8-37

turned red

8-38

I'm hearing of course the Democrats

8-40

common every time they lose the first

8-43

thing they do is super piece and start

8-44

demanding unity and we all must come

8-47

together what they mean

8-49

is we need to pretend we didn't win and

8-52

we need to make sure that we don't tear

8-54

apart whatever their agenda in their

8-56

achievements of banana we work together

8-58

going forward and I expect them to do

9-02

that but I get nervous when I hear

9-04

Republicans start talking about the need

9-06

for magnanimity and unity and coming to

9-10

get the American people didn't vote for

9-11

that the American people defeated

9-14

Hillary Clinton they voted for Trump to

9-16

defeat Hillary and defeated democrats

9-18

they have less power than they've ever

9-19

had in the nineteen-twenties we've got

9-21

greater opportunities today than at any

9-23

time in my life mr. freebus since the

9-25

nineteen eighties at least two really

9-28

really implement the agenda that the

9-31

republican party in the conservative

9-33

movement have always been known for low

9-35

government's the logan hundred percent

9-37

agree on a pretty not agree with you i

9-40

agree with you it's important to make

9-42

peace

9-43

i I'm all for that and it's important to

9-46

adopt the you know the campaign but i'll

9-48

tell you what it's also the opportunity

9-51

to do the will of the people and the

9-54

will of the people is exactly as you

9-55

outlined we have won everything up and

9-58

down the ticket

10-00

we got the house-senate the White House

10-02

the people of this country voted for

10-05

that and we have to deliver the change

10-08

that was promised and that you know it's

10-11

a tax reform it starts with a

10-12

conservative Supreme Court every single

10-15

thing that was talked about on that

10-18

campaign now it needs to be delivered

10-20

exactly there's no excuses for not doing

10-23

it because we've got a pathway to do it

10-25

that's exactly right and they're working

10-27

a myriad issues the Trump discussed

10-29

immigration refugees to any number of

10-32

things he had offering host of issues

10-34

that that made it he made part of his

10-37

campaign but when you say that we we

10-39

have we want i think you used the word

10-41

peace that might well I mean we don't

10-44

want to

10-45

what's going on out on the streets to me

10-47

we know what you're seeing across the

10-48

country minutes just yeah okay that's

10-51

good

10-51

elections are over that's not real I

10-54

don't believe because of what we want

10-55

with the project veritas videos thereby

10-57

saying that they're paying for those

10-59

protests yeah yeah understood

11-01

don't let it affect you there that's all

11-03

that's all made to look like that

11-04

there's genuine outraged that we won but

11-07

there isn't there is happiness that we

11-09

want

11-09

yeah absolutely i'm with you on that i

11-11

think that's what i was referring to but

11-13

you know look we're gonna move forward

11-16

we've got an agenda that needs to be

11-18

fulfilled and we've got no excuses not

11-21

to get the leadership in place we've got

11-24

the white house's look at what's

11-25

happening in the state and the

11-26

legislature is I mean there's a lot of

11-28

flips and state legislatures that we've

11-31

also have succeeded in across the

11-35

country so now it's time to do the will

11-37

of the people the White House spokesman

11-40

Josh earnest said after the meeting

11-43

between president obama and president

11-46

elect Trump which 1 90 minutes today not

11-48

the usual 15 but earnest and although we

11-51

want to do everything we can to make

11-54

sure president elect Trump gets the

11-57

ground running and has a good shot at

12-00

accomplishing what is to succeed really

12-03

right i think they'll hopefully that'll

12-07

last but my guess is that they'll become

12-10

and pretty strong pretty hard down

12-13

yeah okay well least then you know i

12-15

mean III yeah it's it's it's such an

12-20

opportunity and the Democrats are in a

12-23

position they're not used to being in

12-24

yeah whatever dude we were the party

12-27

that was to put that did the media had

12-29

already written that we were going to be

12-31

in crisis today and if you open up most

12-33

of the Washington rags it says the

12-35

opposite and and we audit and we are to

12-39

take the advantage of our position which

12-43

was given to us by the people fairly and

12-46

squarely and do our job

12-48

well I just don't I i hope a lot of

12-50

people are so I realize it isn't mean to

12-53

be happy when we win

12-54

it's not mean to advance our agenda

12-57

because that's what we were elected to

12-58

do i hope they don't think it's mean or

13-00

offensive if we don't include the

13-03

Democrats in our Obamacare plans unless

13-05

they agree with brian we're happy to

13-08

welcome aboard

13-10

but I real we got too many people that

13-12

seem guilty if we win and they don't

13-15

want people mad at them and so they try

13-17

to water it down and diluted a little

13-19

bit and I hope it doesn't happen i agree

13-21

didn't pursue your agenda with happiness

13-24

and enthusiasm and with a lot of energy

13-27

to get it done a hundred percent on

13-28

board with that and i agree with you

13-30

well thank you so much for the call i

13-32

appreciate about it and I do Chairman

13-34

Reince Priebus of the Republican

13-36

National Committee and he did he came

13-38

here with Sean Spicer and it was i don't

13-42

know i think it was in March or April

13-43

somewhere it was at a point in time

13-45

where it looked like Trump was owning

13-49

this but they weren't sure

13-51

and in a lot of people were at that time

13-53

in official Republican they were afraid

13-56

what this mean and i can i can tell you

14-00

that during them that they were here for

14-02

an hour and at no time did I hear them

14-06

say or have any doubt that if Trump was

14-09

a nominee they were all in there is back

14-12

they stood out that way as not being

14-15

part of the crowd that couldn't accept

14-18

Trump back they were both he and Spicer

14-22

were intrigued about Trump and the

14-25

possibilities of trumps being elected it

14-30

was refreshing actually and I just

14-32

wanted to to mention that to those of

14-34

you I didn't at the time because it was

14-38

an off-the-record meeting and we had not

14-44

met I'd never met chairman Reince Priebus and

14-47

that's really what the purpose of it was

14-48

and so then we began discussing the

14-50

Trump campaign what it all meant and how

14-53

would he was handling and how I was

14-55

handling it and what we thought was

14-56

going to happen it was a good

14-57

conversation but no time was he ever

15-00

that I detected in the club that could

15-05

not stomach and would not tolerate Trump

15-07

it was just exactly
