ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump attended the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa, United States on Saturday, where talked about the economy and immigration. "GDP (gross domestic product) goes down fairly substantially, and I think it's going to continue to go down. That means we're getting smaller, and yet we have more people, many of which pour across the border" he told the moderator. "We need somebody who can take our jobs back from China," he said. "We need somebody that can take our jobs back from Mexico. We need somebody that can take our jobs back, Frank, because we're going to hell. Our country's going to hell." He rounded off his speech with a standing ovation from the audience, to which he remarked, "I get a standing ovation, other people don't."
