Donald Trump is never too concerned about sounding articulate...but in his latest interview with The Wall Street Journal, he sounds even more absurd than ever.

The transcript of his WSJ interview was originally kept quiet -- as, you know, journalists are supposed to do in order to support the President -- but luckily, Politico got a leaked copy, so we can all see what our President said.

So without further ado, here are some quotes:

I was last night in West Virginia, and I had farmers coming up to me and hugging me and kissing me because of the cattle stuff.

Yes, the farmers kiss Trump because of cattle stuff...

He appears to be referring to changes in trade agreements with China regarding beef, although it's not really clear whether he's actually referring to anything.

Note that a few weeks later, Japan slapped a 50% tarriff on US beef. We'll see if those farmers continue to pucker up...

But now, once it's done -- it was my original theory: Once it's begun, now they can get together. They can do something. But they won't do that. There's too much -- and this isn't with respect to me; this is years. This is years, Gerry. I mean, if you look at what's been going on over the last long period of time. I actually asked people that are political people -- I could ask you people -- you know, is it the worst you've seen it?

Kramer opens the door: This is YEARS JERRY!

Every indication is that in every one of our swing states we're substantially up, like Ohio. Tonight I'm going to Ohio -- Youngstown, Ohio -- and we'll be up -- we're way up. You know, I won the state by 9 or 10 or something, by 9 or 10 points, without any governor support, OK? So you have the governor of Ohio not supporting you and you win by almost 10 points, which is pretty good because Ohio's not -- if you remember, you guys were always saying you have to win Ohio, right?

This is 3 years before the next election, and over 250 days since the last one...

TRUMP: ... from the time I walked out on the stage -- because I know. And by the way, I'd be the first to admit mixed. I'm a guy that will tell you mixed. There was no mix there. That was a standing ovation from the time I walked out to the time I left, and for five minutes after I had already gone. There was no mix.

WSJ: Yeah, there was a lot of supporters in the arena.

TRUMP: And I got a call from the head of the Boy Scouts saying it was the greatest speech that was ever made to them, and they were very thankful. So there was -- there was no mix.

When mixed happens, you gotta admit it... He's talking about the Boy Scouts BTW.

So, you know, and these are like countries, you know, fairly large, like 300 million people. You know, a lot of people say -- they say, well, but the United States is large. And then you call places like Malaysia, Indonesia, and you say, you know, how many people do you have? And it's pretty amazing how many people they have.

Both Indonesia and Malaysia have fewer people than the U.S. Malaysia has around 30 million people.
