Donald Trump: My Son Should Have Fewer Toys (Made in China)

In an interview with CNN's Erin Burnett, Donald Trump says he's in favor of cracking down on China–even if that means his son, Baron, ends up with fewer toys. "It's jobs," Trump said. "Instead of buying from China we'll be making the gidgets and the gadgets and the toys for Baron Trump and everybody else that buys their children toys. They'll be made in Alabama and Iowa and lots of other places."

Trump said a currency readjustment could mean higher prices for consumers–but more jobs in the U.S. And, in his home, fewer toys for his son. "You know, I mean I have a child upstairs. He's got nine airplanes. So instead of nine he'll have three. But they'll be made in this country. And I like that. And he wouldn't know the difference."

The entire interview airs Monday night at 7 p.m. ET on CNN's Erin Burnett OutFront.

Piers Morgan Crashes Erin's Rehearsal, Confronts Her Over Trying To Get Him Fired

The man who–until now–had been CNN's "newest nightly name," Piers Morgan, crashed a rehearsal for Erin Burnett's OutFront, complimenting Erin on her new set and show–but also showing he hasn't quite forgotten the comments Erin made about him on Celebrity Apprentice. "You stuck the knife straight in my back," he said.

Piers (who was not "fired" by Donald Trump as a result of Erin's comments, but went on to win) had a few choice (but joking) words of his own, telling Erin he'd come into her studio and interrupted rehearsals to wish her "total, abject failure."

More seriously, Piers urged Erin to be true to herself and share her views on the news every night. "I just want to tune in at seven o'clock and get your opinion on what's going on. I'm actually more interested in your opinion than the people you bring on."
