The Fucking News has obtained previously unreleased audio of Donald Trump speaking candidly in scandalous language about his attempts to enact economic policies without people's consent.

The Fucking News has obtained previously unreleased audio recordings of Donald Trump speaking with economic-policy analyst Ezra Klein of Vox last year aboard a Center on Budget and Policy Priorities party bus. The following unedited transcript contains language that some may consider arcane.

Klein: “…the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau used to be great. It’s still very beautiful.”

Trump: “I moved on it, actually. You know, I was down in Palm Beach. I moved that the House defund it and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try to fuck it, it was married to Dodd-Frank.”

Klein: “That’s huge news there.”

Trump: “No,no, said Nancy [Pelosi]. No, this was [inaudible] and I moved on it very heavily. They wanted to get some furniture for the new headquarters. I said I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture. I moved on the CFPB like a bitch. I couldn’t get there and it was married to the entire Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform regulatory regime. Then all of a sudden I see it, it’s now got the big phony torts against Wall Street and everything.”

[At this point, the two men are apparently distracted by something that catches their eye.]

Klein: “Your tax plan’s hot as shit. In the red.”

Trump: “Whoa. Yes. Whoa.”

Klein: “Yes! The Donald has dynamically scored his tax plan! Whoa, my man.”

Trump: “Look at you. It’s just deficit spending. What a pussy.”

Klein: “You gotta get the CBO thumbs up.”

Trump: “Maybe it’s a different top marginal tax rate.”

Klein: “It better not be the estate tax. No, it’s, it’s carried interest.”

Trump: “Yeah,that’s it. With the gold standard. I better use some SuperPACs just in case I start fleecing voters. You know I’m automatically attracted to stupid—I just start fleecing them. I’m like a magnate. Just fleece. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a Republican they let you do it. You can pass anything.”

Klein:“Whatever you want.”

Trump: “Grab them by the amygdala. You can pass anything.”
