“I have had this room for two months, and we are moving here. We are going to pump up fights every week.

“I am also a day or two away from securing a private island.

“I have a private island that I have secured. We are setting up the infrastructure now, so I’m going to start doing international fights with international fighters.

“We all have our own planes and everything we’re going to fly on the island with the fighters. “
