I WANTED TO TALK TO YOU FIRSTAND FOREMOST ABOUT THE

BIMETRICS.

I WAS WATCHING THE DEBATE ANDPEOPLE AND THEIR VISAS AND THEY

SHOULDN'T OVERSTAY THEIR TIME INTHE U.S.

I FELT LIKE YOU WERE TALKING TOME PERSONALLY.

BECAUSE THAT HAPPENED ONE TIME.

BUT WHAT I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND WASTHE BIMETRICS.

YOU WANT PEOPLE TO GET FEDEXSTAMPS OR--

YOU KNOW THAT.

YOU ALREADY HAVE 10 FEDEXSTAMPS.

>> I WAS THINKING OF GETTING ASTAMP ON MY-- I WAS THINKING OF

GETTING A TRAMP STAMP.

>> THAT WOULDN'T BE BAD.

>> PROBABLY OVERNIGHT.

>> HOLD UP BOTH YOUR HANDS YOUGOT 10 STAMPS ALREADY.

>> Trevor: SO THEFINGERPRINTS.

>> WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO TRACKPEOPLE WHO COME INTO THE COUNTRY

ON VISAS FOR A PARTICULAR PERIODOF TIME.

THESE ARE NOT PEOPLE WHO AREIMMIGRATING HERE TO STAY HERE

FOREVER.

>> Trevor: PEOPLE COMING HERE TOWORK.

>> TO WORK OR A STUDENT VISA ORTOURIST VISA.

GIVE A THUMBPRINT WHEN YOU COMEIN.

GOES INTO A DATABASE.

WE HAVE TO ACCESS CERTAINSERVICES IN THE COUNTRY, GIVE

YOUR THUMBPRINT AGAIN.

>> TALKING ABOUT ACCESSING THOSESERVICES, IS IT AS EASY AS YOU

SAY?

RIGHT NOW, YOU DON'T EVEN HAVEEXIT FINGERPRINTS WHEN YOU LEAVE

THE UNITED STATES.

HOW DO YOU IMPLEMENT THEM TOOTHER PLACES?

I READ YOU TALKING ABOUTIMPLEMENTING IT IN, LIKE, CAR

RENTAL CASES SAYING PEOPLE CAN'TRENT A CAR.

HOW DOES THAT WORK?

SOMEBODY COMES IN THERE AND THEYHAVE A FINGERPRINT?

>> WITH A FINGER PRINT YOU HAVEA DATABASE, AND IF IT SAYS YOU

OVERSTAYED, WE TAP YOU ON THESHOULDER AND SAY THANKS FOR

COMING.

I'LL BE THERE THE ENTIRE TIME.

>> Trevor: YOU'LL BE AT ALLTHE CAR RENTAL AGENCIES?

>> NO EVERY ONE.

BUT I WILL BE AT THE ONE WHEREYOU RETURN A RENTAL CAR.

>> Trevor: I MEAN, IT'S GOING TOCOST SO MUCH MONEY.

$7 BILLION, ESTIMATES.

THAT'S JUST TO OVERHAUL IT INTHE AIRPORTS.

>> YEAH.

>> Trevor: WOULD YOU NOT SAYTHAT'S A LITTLE BIT OF AN

OVERSHOOT?

>> THAT'S A LOT LESS EXPENSIVETHAN A 2,000-MILE WALL ACROSS

THE ENTIRE SOUTHERN BORDER.

HOW ABOUT THAT?

>> Trevor: TOUCHE, MY FRIEND,TOUCHE.

TOUCHE.

LET'S TALK ABOUT THOSE DEBATES.

WHY WERE THEY SO LONG?

>> I'M STILL ASKING MYSELF THATQUESTION.

BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY OF USUP THERE.

THINK ABOUT IT.

I WAS UP THERE FOR THREE HOURSTWO WEEKS AGO.

AND I GOT TO SPEAK FOR A TOTALOF 10 MINUTE.

>> Trevor: THAT'S THE ENTIRETIME THAT YOU GET TO SPEAK.

>> 10 MINUTES.

FOR TWO HOURS AND 50MANSLAUGHTER I'M JUST GOING--

>> Trevor: WHO WAS THAT?

WHO WAS THAT?

IT SEEMED LIKE IT WAS A LOTABOUT THE INFIGHTING AND I

NOTICE YOU SAID THAT QUITE ABIT.

PEOPLE ARE SICK AND TIRED OFLISTENING TO THE BICKERING.

THEY WANT TO KNOW WHAT THEIRPLAN IS.

AND I DIDN'T GET TO HEAR WHATYOUR PLAN IS.

>> WE ONLY HAD 10 MINUTE.

>> Trevor: WHAT IS YOUR PLAN?

>> WHAT PART OF THE NUMBER OFPROBLEMS WE HAVE IN THIS

COUNTRY.

WE HAVE TO REFORM ENTITLEMENTSIN THIS COUNTRY.

WE SPEND 71% OF OUR FEDERALBUDGET ON ENTITLEMENTS AND DEBT

SERVICE.

THAT'S ALL MONEY WE'RE SPENDINGLOOKING IN THE REARVIEW WINDOW.

>> Trevor: SO THAT'SOVERHAULING SOCIAL SECUIRTY --

>> SOCIAL SECURITY, MEDICARE,MEDICAID, DISABILITY.

>> Trevor: THERE IS STILL ALOT OF DISAGREEMENT ON HOW TO DO

THAT.

>> THERE IS.

AND MY PLAN IS TO INCREASE THERETIREMENT AGE FOR A COUPLE OF

YEARS, PHASE IT IN OVER 25YEARS.

IT'S ONLY GOING UP ONE MONTH AYEAR FOR 25 YEARS.

AND FOR PEOPLE WHO MAKE A LOT OFMONEY IN RETIREMENT.

PEOPLE WHO MAKE $200,000 INRETIREMENT, THEY DON'T NEED A

SOCIAL SECURITY CHECK.

THEY'RE FINE.

A SOCIAL SECURITY CHECK ISNEEDED FOR PEOPLE WHO THAT WILL

MAKE A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RENTAND HEAT AND FOOD.

WE HAVE TO PRESERVE IT FOR THOSEFOLKS.

THE ALTERNATIVE IS BRING IN MOREMONEY TO THE GOVERNMENT.

WHY WOULD WE TRUST THEGOVERNMENT?

THEY'VE ALREADY LIED TO US ANDSTOLEN FROM THE TRUST FUND IN

SECURITY.

THAT'S WHY WE HAVE A PROBLEMNOW.

>> Trevor: WHO IS THEGOVERNMENT?

ARE YOU--

>> NO, NO, NO.

NO, NO, NO, NO, NO.

>> Trevor: SO--

SO CHRIS CHRISTIE GETS ELECTED.

LET'S--

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> YEAH.

COME ON.

THANK YOU, TREVOR.

GOOD NIGHT, EVERYBODY!

THAT WILL BE IT.

I'M LEAVING.

I GOTTA GET TO WORK.

>> Trevor: I HEARD YOU TALK --IT WAS ON TWITTER, DEAR D.C.

ONE OF THE BIG THINGS YOU SEEMEDOPPOSED TO WAS THE G.O.P.

LEADERSHIP DOESN'T SEEM TO BEWORKING IN CONGRESS.

THEY'RE NOT TRYING TO MOVETHINGS FORWARD.

A BIG PART OF THAT IS A LACK OFBIPARTISANSHIP.

BUT I DON'T UNDERSTAND HONESTLYHOW YOU CAN CHANGE IT.

>> YOU HAVE TO WORK WITH PEOPLE.

I HAVE A DEMOCRATIC LEGISLATUREIN NEW JERSEY.

FOR EVERY MINUTE I HAVE BEENGOVERNOR, I HAVE A DEMOCRATIC

LEGISLATURE.

THAT'S NOT AN EXCUSE FOR NOTDOING YOUR JOB.

YOU HAVE TO GET TO KNOW THESEFOLKS AND FIND COMPROMISE.

COMPROMISE ISN'T CAPITULATION,IT'S COMPROMISE.

>> Trevor: BUT THE COMPROGRAMIS LIMITED WHEN SOMETIMES THE

PEOPLE YOU WORK WITH ONLY LOOKAT THE SMALL THINGS YOU CAN DO

WHEN TRYING TO COMPROMISE.

I REMEMBER ONE TIME YOU TOUCHEDPRESIDENT OBAMA.

>> I SHOOK HIS HAND.

>> Trevor: YOU TOUCHEDPRESIDENT OBAMA.

>> I DID.

WE TOUCHED EACH OTHER.

>> Trevor: AND THE POINT IS,TO THIS DAY, SOME PEOPLE IN YOUR

PARTY HAVEN'T LET YOU LIVE THATDOWN.

CAN YOU CHANGE THAT?

>> WELL, I TOUCHED HIM, SO ICAN'T CHANGE THAT --

>>Trevor: SO YOU DID TOUCH HIM!

>> I ADMIT IT, I DID.

I WORK WITH DEMOCRATS IN MYSTATE ALL THE TIME BECAUSE THE

PEOPLE ELECTED THEM.

SO YOU'VE GOT TO WORK WITH THEM.

IT'S NOT AN OPTION.

WHAT'S HAPPENING IN WASHINGTONNOW IS PEOPLE THINK IT'S AN

OPTION.

IT'S AN OPTION TO CLOSE THEGOVERNMENT.

IT'S AN OPTION NOT TO TALK TOTHE OTHER SIDE.

THAT SHOULD NOT BE AN OPTION.

YOU GET SENT THERE TO WORK, TOGOVERN.

THAT'S WHAT I'VE DONE IN NEWJERSEY.

WE HAVE COMPROMISED ON A BUNCHOF STUFF OVER TIME THAT'S MADE

THE STATE A BETTER PLACE.

>> Trevor: BIGGEST OBSTACLEYOU FACE RIGHT NOW BEFORE I LET

YOU GO IS GETTING THOSE POLLNUMBERS UP.

WE HAVE SEEN PEOPLE SURGE IN THEPOLLS.

MY QUESTION TO YOU, CHRISCHRISTIE, IS WHAT ARE THOSE

PLANS TO GET THOSE NUMBERS UP?

PEOPLE SAY 20% TO 30% TO GET THEG.O.P. NOMINATION.

WHAT DOES CHRIS CHRISITIE DO TOGET THE NUMBERS UP?

>> COME ON THE FIRST WEEK OF THE DAILY SHOW WITH TREVOR

NOAH.

>> Trevor: GOVERNOR CHRIS,CHRISTIE, EVERYONE.
