Donald Trump on Ted Cruz, the Tea Party, and Barack Obama as an unnatural deal maker

As the nation remains paralyzed by the government shutdown, and with the debt ceiling deadline rapidly approaching, on Thursday Piers Morgan sat down with Donald Trump, asking the famed business magnate to offer his analysis of the standstill in Washington, D.C.

With junior Senator Ted Cruz quickly becoming one of the primary faces of the debate, Trump gave his endorsement of the 42-year Texan's primary political association:

"I’m a believer in the Tea Party because what they want is what’s really right for this country. They want something to be done about this horrendous debt, something to be done about a lot of different things going on in the country," said the man who made "You're fired" a household phrase. "Our country is in a free fall and these are good American people. These are great American people so, you know, sometimes severe, sometimes not so severe, but they do want what’s good for the country."

Meanwhile, with Barack Obama and John Boehner at a continual crossroads, the 67-year-old grandfather offered an explanation for the impasse:

"In all fairness to the president, he’s never been a dealmaker. He never made deals before he became a senator," Trump told the "Piers Morgan Live" host. "It’s like sports, you have natural hitters in baseball, and natural shot makers in basketball, and natural putters in golf. He’s not a natural dealmaker. It doesn’t come naturally to him. So he’s got to use other people. He’s got to do something, because right now, you know again, he said ‘I’m not negotiating.’ That’s fine, but then you have to negotiate."

Watch the clips for more from Morgan's sit down interview with the man who once chose not to fire him, instead choosing to crown him the first-ever winner of "The Celebrity Apprentice."

    Donald Trump and Piers on the same show at the same time? !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That should be filed under cruel and unusual punishment, and rated triple-X by the FCC.

    Why do you gives this buffoon? Why? He knows next to nothing about politics, and he adds nothing to the national conversation. Nothing. Nada. Please don't ever have him as a guest again.

        Because the one who's show this is...is a buffoon himself. And I'm not sure which of the two are dumber.

    Piers, if you are looking for stupid people to appear on your show, you should contact my neighbor Harry. He is easily dumber than even Donald Trump. I cannot, for the life of me, understand why CNN would have someone like Donald Trumpt on your network. Not only is he a moron, he is a horrible example of a human being. Why would you go so far as to ask him his opinion about things? No one, and I mean no one, cares what he thinks.

      If Piers wants dumb people for his show, then all he needs to do is setup a mirror so he can interview himself. Perfect really since he is a narcissistic bloviate.

    The most painless solution to all this drama
    Is for the GOP and The President to agree
    To raise the debt ceiling and the looming Budget Battle
    BY -–
    AGREEING TO CONTINUE THE CURRENT 10% SEQUESTER

    For a specific amount of time
    agreed to by both Parties.
    But may also address an end the GOP"s
    Future brinksmanship strategy
    as a tactic for capitulation.

    It gives the GOP their Govt. spending cuts
    And gives Obama a solution, that the Country,
    has seemingly adapted, to without Catastrophe.
    Its also fairer – in that everybody feels the pain

    Good show but as before on this topic, the knowledge on who owns the debt is flaud. On Tuesday China was said to own 80%. Yesterday it was 'a third' which is the total debt owned by foreigners 9China has close to 25% of this piece which is some 7% (!!!!!) of total debt.......This is a popular misunderstanding but a quality show should know facts better.

    The GOP congress is the bowel of the USA political system and the tea party the blockage causing constipation.

    Gee. I can hardly wait for the ego-on-legs Mr Trump to prove yet again he can be a contortionist if Cruz makes a run at the presidency. He is clearly not eligible as he was born in Alberta. Divesting himself of his Canadian citizenship canno fly.

    I'm really into photography and would quite like a job involving it however i do NOT want to take pictures of people (weddings and stuff), i like taking arty/creative pictures. I also love writing and I have been thinking of writing for a teenage magazine and hopefully being able to get photography in there as well. Has anybody got any ideas on what job I could do that involves my kind of photography and writing and how I could get there. At the moment I'm 16..
