Trump: On track to hit highest annual growth rate in over 13 years


AMERICA’S ECONOMIC GROWTH, OR GDP, WERE JUST RELEASED. AND I AM THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE THAT IN THE SECOND QUARTER OF THIS YEAR THE UNITED STATES ECONOMY GREW AT THE AMAZING RATE OF 4.1%. WE’RE ON TRACK TO HIT THE HIGHEST ANNUAL AVERAGE GROWTH RATE IN OVER 13 YEARS AND I WILL SAY THIS RIGHT NOW AND I WILL SAY IT STRONGLY, AS THE TRADE DEALS COME IN ONE BY UP WITH, WE’RE GOING TO GO A LOT HIGHER THAN THESE NUMBERS AND THESE ARE GREAT NUMBERS. IN PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION WE AVERAGED 1.8% GDP GROWTH. BY CONTRAST WE’RE NOW ON TRACK TO HIT AN AVERAGE GDP ANNUAL GROWTH OF OVER 3% AND IT COULD BE SUBSTANTIALLY OVER 3%. EACH POINT BY THE WAY MEANS APPROXIMATELY $3 TRILLION AND 10 MILLION JOBS, THINK OF THAT. EACH POINT. YOU GO UP ONE POINT, DOESN’T SOUND LIKE MUCH. IT’S A LOT. IT IS $3 TRILLION AND IT IS 10 MILLION JOBS. IF ECONOMIC GROWTH CONTINUES AT THIS PACE THE UNITED STATES ECONOMY WILL DOUBLE IN SIZEMORE THAN 10 YEARS FASTER THAN WOULD HAVE UNDER EITHER PRESIDENT BUSH A BIG ONE, IS THAT THE TRADE THE WORLD, HAS DROPPED BY MORE THAN 50 BILLION DOLLARS. 52 BILLION TO BE EXACT. DROPPED BY MORE THAN 50. THINK OF THAT, THE TRADE DEFICIT THAT IN A LONG TIME. TOUGH GO BACK A LONG TIME BEFORE YOU FIND IT. BY INCREASING GROWTH TO 3% OVER THE NEXT 10 YEARS, THAT WOULD MEAN 12 MILLION NEW AMERICAN JOBS AND $10 TRILLION OF NEW AMERICAN WEALTH AT LEAST. AND THAT’S NOT INCLUDING THE FACT THAT SINCE I WAS ELECTED WE’VE CREATED APPROXIMATELY $7 TRILLION OF NEW WEALTH. THE YEAR BEFORE I CAME INTO OFFICE PRIVATE BUSINESS INVESTMENT GREW AT ONLY 1.8%. LAST YEAR IT JUMPED TO 6.3%. GET IT TO GROW. THIS YEAR IT IS GROWING AT 9.4%. SO THAT’S A VERY TREMENDOUS INCREASE. THERE HASN’T BEEN AN INCREASE IN THAT IN MANY, MANY YEARS, DECADE AND I THINK THE MOST IMPORTANT THING, AND LARRY KUDLOW JUST CONFIRMED TO ME ALONG WITH KEVIN HASSETT THAT THESE NUMBERS ARE VERY, VERY SUSTAINABLE. THIS IS NOT A ONE-TIME SHOT. I HAPPEN TO THINK WE’LL DO EXTRAORDINARILY WELL IN OUR NEXT REPORT, NEXT QUARTER. I THINK IT’S GOING TO BE OUTSTANDING.

Trump believes Israel’s Netanyahu over Iran nuclear deal


DIFFERENT PLACES INCLUDING SINGAPORE FOR THE MEETING WITH THE OTHER BIT OF NEWS HE BELIEVES WHAT BENJAMIN NETANYAHU IS SAYING TODAY, WHICH IRAN HAS BEEN LYING AND IS LYING REGARDING ITS ABILITY TO PRODUCE AND WORK ON A NUCLEAR WEAPON. I’M JOINED RIGHT NOW BY RETIRED LIEUTENANT-GENERAL JERRY BOYKIN, FORMER DEPUTY DEFENSE SECRETARY. AND, I’M CURIOUS FIRST OFF, YOUR THOUGHTS HERE, ON IRAN AND WHETHER YOU AGREE WITH NETANYAHU AND WHAT THIS MEANS, THAT THE PRESIDENT IS NOW SAYING THAT HE BELIEVES, WHAT ISRAEL IS SAYING, HOW DOES IT AFFECT WHAT HAPPENS NOW IN THIS WELL DEAL?>>WELL, TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION DIRECTLY, YES, I BELIEVE THAT WHAT I BELIEVE THE PRIME MINISTER LAID OUT IN THAT BRIEF SOMETHING TRUE. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A PRIME MINISTER A HEAD OF STATE, DO A TACTICAL BRIEFING LIKE HE DID. THAT IS A STRONG INDICATION HOW SERIOUS THE ISRAELIS ARE ABOUT THE THREAT FROM IRAN. I JUST CAME BACK FROM ISRAEL TWO DAYS AGO. I MUST TELL YOU, THIS IS, THIS IS A SUBJECT THAT EVERYBODY ON THE STREETS IS TALKING ABOUT, IS THIS EXISTENTIAL THREAT. THE OTHER THING THAT STRUCK ME THOUGH WAS, YOU KNOW, I’M LEFT WONDERINGING A FORMER INTEL GUY HOW ON EARTH THEY GOT ALL THAT MATERIAL OUT? I DO BELIEVE IT IS LEGITIMATE. TRISH: WOW. SO, HOW DOES THAT AFFECT WHAT WE’RE DOING AND EUROPEANS, NEGOTIATING A EXIT FROM THIS DEAL OR A NEW DEAL?>>NEEDLESS TO SATE EUROPEANS ARE DOING EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO GET AMERICA TO STAY IN THIS DEAL I WISH I HAD BEEN A FLY ON THE WALL WITH DISCUSSIONS WITH PRESIDENT MACRON THE OTHER DAY. I THINK TRUMP MADE THIS CAMPAIGN PLEDGE WHEN HE TALKED ABOUT GETTING OUT OF THE DEAL. I THINK PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU JUST REINFORCED HIM, IN THE MOST POTENT KIND OF WAY THAT HE COULD, AND I PERSONALLY DON’T BELIEVE THAT MR. TRUMP IS GOING TO STAY IN THIS DEAL. I’M TO THE SURE THAT HE WILL JUST BLATANTLY PULL OUT OF IT, BUT I THINK HE WILL WANT TO GO BACK TO THE NEGOTIATING TABLE WITH OUR ALLIES TO SEE WHAT CAN BE DONE, PARTICULARLY IN TERMS OF POSSIBLE REIMPOSITION OF SOME SANCTIONS. TRISH: SO HOW WILL THE ISRAELI EVIDENCE AFFECT OUR ALLIES? THAT IS PRETTY CRITICAL, RIGHT?

Gutfeld on Trump withdrawing from Iran deal


DANA PERINO. “THE FIVE” .” DONALD TRUMP NICKED THE IRAN DEAL WHICH HE SAID HE WOULD DO ALL ALONG.>>I AM ANNOUNCING TODAY THAT THE UNITED STATES WILL WITHDRAW FROM THE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL. WE WILL BE INSTITUTING THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF ECONOMIC SANCTIONS. ANY NATION THAT HELPS IRAN AND ITS QUEST FOR NUCLEAR WEAPONS COULD ALSO BE STRONGLY SANCTIONED BY THE UNITED STATES. AMERICA WILL NOT BE HELD HOSTAGE TO NUCLEAR BLACKMAIL. TODAY’S ACTION SENDS A CRITICAL MESSAGE. THE UNITED STATES NO LONGER MAKES EMPTY THREATS. WHEN I MAKE PROMISES, I KEEP THEM.>>Greg: BEFORE THAT, APPARENTLY JOHN KERRY SPOKE TO IRANIAN LEADERS ABOUT SAVING THE DEAL. I DON’T BLAME THE GUY. KERRY’S LEGACY IS UNRAVELING FASTER THAN A MUMMY ON A MERRY-GO-ROUND. THE WHOLE POINT OF THE IRAN DEAL WAS LEGACY, IT WASN’T SECURITY. BEFORE THIS DEAL, IRAN WAS ON THE ROPES. THE ECONOMY WAS HEADED INTO NORTH KOREAN TERRITORY AND IT WAS ABOUT AS STABLE AS JOHN KERRY ON A SKATEBOARD. THEN WE THREW THEM A LIFELINE. STUPID. WE WENT TO NEGOTIATE WITH APOCALYPTIC THEOCRAT’S AND WE SENT THIS GUY. DO JAMES TAYLOR STROM SOME MUSIC? THE IRAN DEAL, THE NEW GUY, TRUMP, TORE IT DOWN. DOES THIS MEAN WAR? IF YOU THINK THE CURRENT PRESIDENT HARBORS A GRUDGE AGAINST IRAN, YOU’D BE WRONG. HE SEEMS WILLING TO TALK TO JUST ABOUT ANYONE. THE ONLY THING HE HATES HIS DUMB DEALS. HE WOULD RATHER START, THIS IS HIS VERSION OF A RESET WITH LEVERAGE.>>IRAN’S LEADERS WILL NATURALLY SAY THAT THEY REFUSED TO NEGOTIATE A NEW DEAL. THEY REFUSE, AND THAT’S FINE. I WOULD PROBABLY SAY THE SAME THING IF I WAS IN THEIR POSITION THING IF I WAS IN THEIR POSITIO POSITION. BUT THE FACT IS THEY ARE GOING TO WANT TO MAKE A NEW AND LASTING DEAL. ONE THAT BENEFITS ALL OF IRAN AND THE IRANIAN PEOPLE. WHEN THEY DO, I AM READY, WILLING, AND ABLE. GREAT THINGS CAN HAPPEN FOR IRAN COMMAND GREAT THINGS CAN HAPPEN FOR THE PEACE AND STABILITY THAT WE ALL WANT IN THE MIDDLE EAST.>>Greg: THAT’S NICE. FOR THOSE OF YOU IN A PANIC, REMEMBER THAT YOU FELT THAT WAY ABOUT NORTH KOREA TOO. AS TRUMP DEALS WITH THE WORST ON THE PLANET, HE SCRATCHES OFF ISIS AND NORTH KOREA, IRAN SEEMS NEXT. IT’S A SKILL SET THAT HISTORY WILL BE KINDER TO THAN JOHN KERRY.

Bruce Ohr shouldn’t be employed: Rep. Biggs


SEGMENT WILL BE QUESTIONING BRUCE OHR. JOINING US TONIGHT, REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN ANDREW BIGGS, HOUSE OF THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE AND THE FREEDOM CAUCUS. CONGRESSMAN, GOOD TO SEE YOU. NOW SUDDENLY, OHR AND YATES ARE THE FIGURES OF THE HOUR. LET’S START WITH OHR AND WHY DOES HE STILL HAVE A JOB?>>WELL, THAT IS THE ONE THAT LEAVES ME SCRATCHING WHAT LITTLE HAIR I HAVE LEFT. I MEAN, THERE IS A GUY THAT PARTICIPATED AND WE WILL FIND PARTICIPATED IN THE CREATION OF THIS FUSION GPS DOSSIER WHICH HE MIGHT HAVE BEEN COLLUDING WITH HIS WIFE OVER THIS, WHO’S WORKING FOR FUSION GPS. THERE IS NO REASON IN THE WORLD BY THIS GUY SHOULD BE EMPLOYED BY THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. LOU: AND SALLY YATES SIGNING OFF ON AT LEAST ONE OF THE FISA WARRANT APPLICATIONS. SHE HAS BEEN OUT OF THE PUBLIC VIEW EVER SINCE SHE RESIGNED AND NOW SUDDENLY BECOMING PROMINENT ONCE AGAIN.>>WELL YEAH, SO I WILL CREDIT FOR ONE THING. SHE KIND OF TRIED TO KEEP A LOW PROFILE AND THIS MAY BE HOPING BECAUSE THE QUESTION IS EXACT ADDRESS. WHAT DID SHE KNOW ABOUT WHAT BRUCE OHR WAS DOING? DO SHE SANCTION WOULD BRUCE OHR WAS DOING AND FACILITATE AND ITCHY LIGHT IN THE FISA WARRANT OR DID SHE HIDE INFORMATION WHEN SHE SIGNED OFF ON THE FISA AFFIDAVIT? LOU: I SAID THAT SHE RESIGNED TO PRESIDENT TRUMP FIRING HER BECAUSE SHE REFUSED TO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS OF THE PRESIDENT OF OHR, GAVE COMMON IT SEEMS IT IS LOU: THE INVESTIGATIONS OF CONGRESS, AND THE INVESTIGATION OF SPECIAL COUNSEL IN THE INVESTIGATION FIRST OF THE SBI. MY GOD, AT WHAT POINT DO WE SAY THERE SHOULD BE SOME MORE ENERGY AND COMMERCE ITSELF AND I COMPLEMENT YOU AND YOUR COLLEAGUES WHO HAVE BEEN AT THE FOREFRONT OF THE INVESTIGATIVE IF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WERE THE ONES TAKEN THIS LONG TO DO ANYTHING, WE WOULD MISS SEVERAL ELECTIONS IN THIS COUNTRY AND IT’S JUST INEXCUSABLE TO ME THAT WE’VE GOT THIS KIND OF APATHETIC LEADERSHIP. AND I AM TALKING ABOUT YOUR SPEAKER, PAUL RYAN.>>WELL, THE CONGRESSIONAL TORPOR AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS IS ABSOLUTELY FRUSTRATING TO ME. YOU KNOW, DON’T FORGET WE ALSO HAVE AN ATTORNEY GENERAL WHO HAS LET THIS THING GO ON. YEAH, IT HAS GONE ON WAY TOO LONG. WE ARE NOT SAYING IN A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS OF PEOPLE, SO WHEN BRENDAN TALKS ABOUT TREASON, WELL HOW ABOUT THE ELECTION? HIMSELF BRIEFING HARRY REID. YOU KNOW, WE ARE GOING TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THIS IN BRENDAN’S ROLE IN THIS BAND, YOU KNOW, HE HAS A VERY EXPANSIVE VIEW OF WHAT TREASON MAY BE. HE MIGHT JUST BE CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK HIMSELF WHEN HE DOES THAT. LOU: IF YOU CAN REALIZE WHAT HE MEANS BY TREASONOUS, AND HE SAID THAT IT WAS NOTHING SHORT OF TREASON. THE HELSINKI STATEMENT THAT THE PRESIDENT, WHICH IS REALLY MIND-BOGGLING WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT. AND I WAS TRYING TO SAY THAT HE DIDN’T MEAN TREASONOUS. I MEAN, PLEASE, TO THINK HE WAS THE HEAD OF THE CIA, HE IS OAFISH, HE IS CLUMSY BEYOND IMAGINATION WITH WORDS AND I DON’T THINK HE KNOWS WHAT THE HEL HE’S TALKING ABOUT TO BEGIN WITH.>>I WANT TO KNOW IF HE MONETIZED HIS SECURITY CLEARANCE POST TO THE POINT BEING. I BELIEVE IT LOOKS LIKE HE DID AFTER MAKING MONEY HAND OVER I WANT TO KNOW, DID HE MONETIZED THIS? LOU: THE OVER 60 FORMER INTELLIGENCE OFFICIALS WHO ARE SUPPORTING HIM? WHAT IN THE WORLD WITH THE INTELLIGENCE APPARATUS IN THIS COUNTRY UNDER PRESIDENT OBAMA? THOSE ARE SOME OF THE MOST — I MEAN, IT IS INEVITABLE. IT IS OUT OF IGNORANCE AND JUST FOOLISHNESS ON THEIR PART.>>DOES IT NOT SPEAK TO THE FACT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS GOTTEN SO BIG AND INTELLIGENCE APPARATUS HAS MAYBE GOTTEN TO INDEPENDENT FROM THE OVERSIGHT THAT CONGRESS IS SUPPOSED TO ME. THESE PEOPLE SAYING HE SHOULD HAVE HIS CLEARANCE. I TRIED TO UNDERSTAND WHY CLASSIFIED JOBS THAT WE HAVE PEERED THAT SHOULDN’T HAPPEN. THEY SHOULDN’T HAVE IT. LOU: THERE IS NO DOUBT OF THAT. ON THIS BROADCAST WE HAVE MADE SERVICE OF THE GOVERNMENT IN ANY ADMINISTRATION SHOULD AUTOMATICALLY LOSE THEIR SECURITY CLEARANCE. FULL STOP UNTIL THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OR HIS DEPARTMENT HEADS DECIDE THAT PERSON IS SUCH AN ESSENTIAL VALUE TO GOVERNMENT AND TO THE ADMINISTRATION THAT THEY HAVE A SECURITY CLEARANCE, A NEW ONE ISSUED. THEY JUST SHOULDN’T BE HAPPENING. THIS PRESIDENT HAS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO CLEAN UP A GOOD MEASURE OF THE SWAMP BY GETTING RID OF THE SECURITY CLEARANCES AS THEY WRITE AND PERK AND PRIVILEGE FOR POLITICAL APPOINTEES. IT IS NONSENSE. IT FUELS MUCH OF THE DEEP STATE IN THIS COUNTRY.>>ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. AND YOU ARE RIGHT IT IS PART OF THE SWAMP. IT IS THE PART PEOPLE DON’T SEE. WHEN IT IS EXPOSED TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, THEY ARE OUTRAGED. THEY SHOULD BE OUTRAGED. AS A MEMBER OF CONGRESS I AM OUTRAGED. I DIDN’T KNOW ALL THESE PEOPLE HAD THIS TOP CLASSIFIED CLEARANCE UNTIL THIS BRENDAN FLAP. I WAS SHAKING MY HEAD SAYING ALL THESE PEOPLE HAVE CLEARANCE AND ARE THEY MONETIZING IT, ARE THEY GETTING PAID TO GO OUT AND LOU: OF COURSE THEY ARE.

What could a trade deal between the US and UK look like?


NEIL: ALL RIGHT. THE PRESIDENT WE ARE TOLD IS ON THE VERGE OF MAKING GOOD ON A CHINESE GOODS. SO THOSE TALKS OR LACK THEREOF DON’T APPEAR TO BE ADVANCING ALONG BUT THE PRESIDENT AS YOU KNOW HAS HAD CONSISTENT PREFERENCE FOR ONE-ON-ONE TRADE DEALS. HE WENT THAT WAY WITH MEXICO. A AGREEMENT GOING WITH THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION TO GET AT LEAST EUROPEANS TO BUY MORE AGRICULTURAL GOODS, NOW WITH HER MAJESTY’S KINGDOM, GREAT BRITAIN. WHO KNOWS THAT BETTER, EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT MEMBER, FAVORITE OF THIS SHOW, DARRELL AM MONDAY.>>HOW ARE YOU? NEIL: THE DEAL TO COME TOGETHER, EXPLAIN WHAT THIS IS ABOUT?>>BOTH SIDES ARE COMMITTED TO HAVING A DEAL. NEIL: U.S. AND BRITAIN.>>EITHER THE TWO GOVERNMENTS WANT IT. WE SPEAK THE SAME LANGUAGE. YOU’RE ALREADY OUR SINGLE A MILLION BRITS OUT THERE CLOCK IN EVERY DAY TO WORK FOR AMERICAN COMPANY. THERE ARE A MILLION AMERICANS WORK FOR A BRITTISH COMPANY. IT’S A NATURAL FIT. WE HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO DO THE TRADE DEAL BECAUSE WE’RE IN THE EUROPEAN UNION. NOW THE DOOR IS OPEN. THE QUESTION HOW DO WE MAXIMIZE THE OPPORTUNITY? HOW DO WE GET A TRADE DEAL WORKS FOR LITTLE GUY AND NOT JUST FOR CORPORATES, MULTINATIONALS, THAT DELIVERS MORE LOWER PRICES AND COMPETITION FOR CONSUMERS? THE BASIC IDEA I’M PUSHING, A LAUNCHING A PROPOSAL 10 THINK TANKS ARE WORKING ON BOTH SIDES OF THE ATLANTIC INCLUDING ALL CRAZY –>>INCLUDES MANHATTAN, HERITAGE,. NEIL: FAIR AND BALANCED THINK TANKS.>>FIRST TIME AS FAR AS ANYONE KNOW COLLABORATED ON THE SAME PROJECT WHICH IS GREAT. REALLY ANY COST TO THE GOVERNMENTS. THE IDEA WE WOULD SIMPLY SAY, WHATEVER IS LEGAL IN YOUR COUNTRY IS AUTOMATICALLY LEGAL IN OUR AND VICE VERSA. THIS SHOULD APPLY TO SERVICES, TO PROFESSIONAL QUALIFICATIONS. IF A DRUG IS APPROVED BY THE FDA THAT SHOULD BE GOOD ENOUGH. IF A GUY IS QUALIFIED TO WORK AS TRADER IN LONDON, HE SHOULD BE ABLE TO PRACTICE ON WALL STREET AND VICE VERSA. IF YOU DID THAT, INSTEAD OF HAVING COMMON STANDARDS, OBAMA WAY OF DOING IT, COMMON RULES ON THREATENED BEFORE THE “BREXIT” VOTE, BE A PITY IF SOMETHING HAPPENED THAT WENT AGAINST YOUR INTERESTS.>>IT IS VERY INTERESTING, THE PRESIDENT TALKS ABOUT A TRADE DEAL WITH THE UK, OBVIOUSLY BEING PRESIDENT TRUMP HE USES HIS HABITUAL SUPERLATIVES. IT WILL BE INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL TRADE. YOU KNOW WHAT? IT REALLY COULD BE. ALL THOSE SUPERLATIVES COULD BE JUSTIFIED IF WE DID A DEAL FOR MUTUAL RECOGNITION. NEIL: WE TAKE IT AWAY, BRITAIN THIS QUEBEC TO THE ASTONISHMENT OF HIS FELLOW LEADERS, WHY DON’T LET’S TAKE HIM SERIOUSLY AND LITERALLY. AT LEAST WITH AN ADVANCED COUNTRY WITH SIMILAR LEVEL OF WAGES WHERE NONE OF ISSUES ABOUT OFFSHORING SO AN ARRIVES. WHY DON’T WE TRY TO DO THAT. IF WE CAN MAKE IT WORK BETWEEN THE UK AND UNITED STATES, LET’S BRING IN OTHER LIKE-MINDED COUNTRIES, OTHER ENGLISH SPEAKING COMMON RULE COUNTRIES. LET’S MAKE A TRADE NEXUS. THE IDEA “BREXIT” GOES THROUGH AND BRITAIN LEAVES THE FOLD SO TO SPEAK, YOU WILL BE ABANDONED>>WELL WE’RE IN THE EU. WE’RE NOT ALLOWED TO NEGOTIATE SOMEONE ELSE. WE’RE SCOPING TRADE DEALS. INTERNATIONAL LAW IS FUZZY — NEIL: I ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT WAS AMERICAN EXPRESSION?>>MAYBE IT IS. MAYBE THAT GETS US OVER THE WITH TRADE DEALS ARE COUNTRIES IF YOU LIKE INNEROPERABLE, METHOD, SAME KIND OF PROFESSIONAL CREDENTIALS. ISRAEL I WOULD PUT IN THAT NEIL: THIS BECOME AS BLUEPRINT COUNTRY BY COUNTRY BASIS?>>I HOPE SO. WHAT WE TENDED TO DO UP TILL NOW OR WHAT THE WORLD TENDED TO DO CORPORATIST DEALS SAY IF YOU WANT TO SELL ME SOMETHING IT HAS TO MEET ALL OF THESE STANDARDS. WHAT HAPPENS IS THAT THE BIG CORPORATES ON BOTH SIDES OF THAT DEAL TRY AND MAXIMIZE THE DIFFICULTY OF CONFORMING WITH THE STANDARDS SO THAT NO NEW ENTRANT CAN COME TO COMPETE AGAINST THEM. THAT WAS HAPPENING WITH THE TTIP DEAL WHICH THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION WAS DISCUSSING WITH EUROPE. THERE ARE ELEMENTS IN THE TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP. LET’S GET AWAY FROM ALL OF THAT, JUST GO FOR BASIC RECIPROCITY. MOMENT ABOUT U.S. BEEF. YOUR DELICIOUS BEEF INVOLVES HORMONES THE REASON THEY’RE BANDED IN EUROPE. THE REASON THEY’RE BANDED IN EUROPE, PURE PROTECTIONISM. THERE WAS A GLUT IN THE ’90s. CAME OUT WITH UNSCIENTIFIC BAN BASICALLY EXCLUDES EVERY OTHER COUNTRY THAT USES THESE HORMONES. THE U.S. IS OBVIOUSLY FUNCTIONING COUNTRY. PEOPLE EAT A LOT OF BEEF, WE WOULD KNOW ABOUT IT. NEIL: THEY ARE GLOWING AT NIGHT. AMERICANS I THINK WE WOULD KNOW LET’S NOT FORBID YOU TO EIGHT IT EITHER. THAT IS MY APPROACH. HAD THE BIG “BREXIT” VOTE, A LOT OF PEOPLE IN INTERIM WITH WAVES OF THIS WHOLE THING, THEY WANT IS THAT VIEW STILL OUT THERE? A LOT OF BRITS ARE CONCERNED? I KNOW IN SCOTLAND THAT WAS A ANY REGRETS, FULL THROTTLE?>>OPINION POLLS ALMOST NO SHIFT THE VOTE SHOWED MAJORITY THE OTHER WAY. THEY TURNED OUT TO BE WRONG. NEIL: YOU’RE RIGHT.>>YOU KNOW, I DO THINK IT WAS A AND IN THE END THE DEAL WE GET WILL HAVE TO REFLECT THAT. IT WILL HAVE TO REFLECT THE FACT SCOTLAND, NORTHERN IRELAND, TWO OF THE FOUR CONSTITUENTS VOTED TO STAY. THAT MEANS WE’LL HAVE TO TREAT NEIL: WAVER YOU GUYS DO THEY HAVE TO GO ALONG WITH IT, RIGHT?>>I DON’T THINK YOU CAN INTERPRET A 4 8-52 VOTE TO SEVEN HAVE YOU EVER ALL TIES. OUR GEOGRAPHY AND POSITION. WE LIKE THEM. THEY ARE OUR FRIEND. WE WANT RICH NEIGHBORS. RICH NEIGHBORS MAKE GOOD CUSTOMERS. NEIL: WHAT ABOUT THE FRENCH GOVERNMENT?>>THE CURRENT FRENCH GOVERNMENT IS PROBABLY BEING THE MOST DIFFICULT IN THESE TALKS BECAUSE THEY ARE KIND OF AFFRONTED WITH THE WHOLE THING. YEAH, WE HAVE AS YOU HAVE DIFFICULTIES WITH THE FRENCH OVER THE YEARS. WE KNOW THEY’RE ON THE SIDE OF DEMOCRACY WHEN THE CHIPS ARE DOWN. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. NEIL: DANIEL HAMMOND, SPEAKS HIS MIND.

FBI informant speaks to Congress about the Uranium One deal


TRYING TO EAT INFLUENCE TRYING TO INFLUENCE.>>Chris: FBI INFORMANT SAYS RUSSIA ROUTED MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO THE U.S. IN AN EFFORT TO BUY INFLUENCE WITH THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION AND WITH BILL AND HILLARY CLINTON. CATHERINE HERRIDGE EXPLAINS.>>FOX NEWS CONFIRMS AN FBI INFORMANT WHO HAS NOT GONE PUBLIC SPENT FOUR HOURS ONCE ANSWER QUESTIONS FROM STAFFERS ON THE SENATE AS WELL AS HOUSE OVERSIGHT AND INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEES. THEIR FOCUS IS AN OBAMA ADMINISTRATION DEAL THAT ALLOWED A RUSSIAN NUCLEAR ENERGY AGENT TO GAIN A CONTROLLING STAKE IN URANIUM ONE. CANADIAN-BASED COMPANY WITH MINING INTEREST IN THE WESTERN U.S.>>EARLY 2010, THE FIX WAS IN.>>THE FBI INFORMANT’S LAWYER SAYS RUSSIANS LAID THE GROUNDWORK AFTER BILL CLINTON AND A WEALTHY CANADIAN FULL PHILANTHROPIST WENT TO KAZAKHSTAN. HE SAID HE SOLD HIS STAKE BEFORE THE DEAL WENT THROUGH AND 18 MONTHS BEFORE HILLARY CLINTON BECAME SECRETARY OF STATE. BY 20 2010, THE RUSSIANS MADR MOVE.>>AND HILLARY CLINTON BECAME SECRETARY OF STATE, THAT’S WHEN THE RUSSIANS WENT TO TOWN AND SAID WE CAN GO IN THERE AND WE ARE GOING TO GET THIS URANIUM ONE BUSINESS DONE.>>CLINTON DID NOT HAVE THE FINAL SAY. THE DEAL CONSIDERED BY THE COMMITTEE ON FOREIGN INVESTMENT IN THE UNITED STATES REQUIRED APPROVAL FROM NINE DIFFERENT

Russia paid Hillary Clinton $3M to influence Uranium One deal?


23800. THAT IS THE LEVEL. KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT HAND CORNER OF THE SCREEN FOR THE PROGRESS OF THE DOUBT. NOW, A DEEP STATE CONTROVERSY. FBI INFORMANT DOUGLAS CAMPBELL MADE WRITTEN ALLEGATIONS TO CONGRESS THAT RUSSIA PAID $3 MILLION TO INFLUENCE HILLARY CLINTON ON THE IRANIAN ONE DEAL. WOULD YOU PLEASE GIVE US THE BIG PICTURE BECAUSE SO MANY PEOPLE ARE CONFUSED BY ALL OF THE NAMES, THE OCCASIONS, WHO MET WHO AND WITH WHAT. TAKE ME THROUGH THE WHOLE PROCESS AS ALLEGED BY YOUR CLIENT.>>YES. WE HAVE TO START IN 2005.>>WOW.>>THAT IS WHEN BILL CLINTON WENT TO KAZAKHSTAN WITH HIS MILLIONAIRE BUDDY FRANK AND THEY LAVISHED ALL KIND OF PRAISE ON THIS UNDESERVING DICTATOR AND GUESS WHAT, WHEN THEY LEFT, THEY HAD RIGHTS TO THE IRANIAN MINING IN KAZAKHSTAN. IMAGINE THAT. IT WAS AT THAT TIME THAT MY CLIENT LEARNED LATER BECAUSE HE GOT INTO IT A COUPLE YEARS LATER THAT VLADIMIR PUTIN STARTED PUTTING TOGETHER THE STRATEGIC PLAN TO CONTROL THE WORLD’S URANIUM AND SPECIFICALLY THE UNITED STATES. THIS IS HOW THEY’LL THE MAYOR PRUDEN WAS CONTROLLING VARIOUS PLACES THAT WERE PART OF THE RUSSIAN EMPIRE WAY BACK. ENERGY. IF GEORGIA MISBEHAVES TAKE AWAY THE ENERGY. HE WANTED TO CONTROL THE URANIUM IN THE UNITED STATES. HILLARY CLINTON WAS SENATOR AT THE TIME BUT IMAGINE THEIR THRILL, THE RUSSIANS WERE JUST BESIDE THEMSELVES WHEN HILLARY BECAME SECRETARY OF STATE. SO, THEY STARTED RECORDING THE CLINTONS AT THAT TIME. YOU TALK ABOUT THE $3 MILLION, DID YOU WANT ME TOO TALK ABOUT THAT.>>YES PLEASE.>>THE BIG MARKETING MAN IN THE NUCLEAR RUSSIAN INDUSTRY AND HE TOLD MY CLIENT MR. CAMPBELL THAT THE RUSSIANS WERE GOING TO PAY APCO, THE BIG LOBBYING FIRM IN WASHINGTON AND IT’S FULL OF DEMOCRATS LIKE CLINTON PEOPLE, THEY WERE GOING TO PAY THEM $3 MILLION AND THEY WOULD DO SOME WORK, BUT NOT $3 MILLION WORTH, BUT A LOT OF IN-KIND WORK FOR THE CLINTON FOUNDATION IN RETURN. THAT WAS THE RUSSIANS GREASING THE PALMS OF THE CLINTONS. SO THAT’S THE $3 MILLION. BUT THE RUSSIANS WERE TELLING MY CLIENT THIS IS A SHOE IN. WE’VE GOT THE CLINTONS. THERE ON BOARD. THEY EVEN HAD MY CLIENT OPEN AN OFFICE IN EARLY 2010 AND REMEMBER THIS DIDN’T TAKE PLACE TILL OCTOBER.>>THAT GROUP VOTED UNANIMOUSLY FOR THE URANIUM DEAL AND HILLARY CLINTON IS USING THAT IN HER DEFENSE, THIS WHOLE GROUP SAID YES UNANIMOUSLY.>>AHA SO IF IT HAS TO BE UNANIMOUS, ONE VOTE CAN CHANGE IT. SO HILLARY CLINTON IS WITHOUT A DOUBT, WE CAN STOP THIS SO YOU BETTER BE GOOD TO US. WHY ELSE WOULD BILL CLINTON RECEIVED $540,000 FOR A 40 MINUTE SPEECH FOUR MONTHS BEFORE THIS APPROVAL.>>HAVE YOU GOT A CLEAN-CUT CASE OF PAY TO PLAY?>>YOU NEVER HAVE A CLEAN-CUT CASE BECAUSE YOU CANNOT FIND SOMEBODY TO SAY I’M IN A GIVE YOU THIS AND YOU CAN GIVE ME THAT. YOU DON’T. WHEN YOU TAKE A CASE LIKE THIS TO A JURY, THE JURORS DECIDE WHETHER GETTING HALF MILLION DOLLARS FOR 45 MINUTE SPEECH FOUR MONTHS BEFORE THIS APPROVAL AMOUNTS TO A PAPER PLATE. YOU KNOW WHO PAID THE $500,000.>>RENAISSANCE CAPITAL. THEY ARE, I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW THEY HAD THIS CAPITALISTIC INVESTMENT FIRM AND GUESS WHAT STOCK THEY WERE PUSHING.

Why Trump was right to pull out of Iran nuclear deal


THANK YOU VERY MUCH. [SHOUTING QUESTIONS] TRISH: PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES MAKING JUST A FEW COMMENTS THERE TO THE MEDIA, BUT RATHER BRIEF AFTER HIS SPEECH WHERE HE INSISTED THAT IRAN HAS BEEN LYING, AND WE HAVE GOTTEN PROOF FROM THE ISRAELIS, HE SAID THAT IRAN HAS BEEN LYING THIS IDEA OF HAVING SOME KIND OF DEAL THAT WOULD MAKE THE WORLD A SAFER PLACE HE SAYS IS UTTER FICTION. AS A RESULT HE IS PULLING THE U.S. OUT OF THE DEAL AND REINSTATING SANCTIONS WITH IRAN. HE LEFT THE WINDOW OPEN A LITTLE BIT. HE WANTS A SAFER MIDDLE EAST. IF IRAN IS PLAYING BALL ON THAT FRONT EFFECTIVELY, HE WOULD BE OPEN TO HAVING THOSE CONVERSATIONS. HERE WITH REACTION, PRESIDENT OF INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS AND POLITICS AT CARNEGIE MELLON UNIVERSITY, AND FOREIGN POLICY ANALYST FOR US AT FOX BUSINESS, CHIRON SKINNER. THE MARKET IS TRADING UP A LITTLE BIT. WHAT DO YOU KNOW? UP 22 POINTS. BUY ON THE RUMOR, SELL ON THE NEWS. THERE HAD BEEN EXPECTATIONS, SOURCES TELLING FOX TODAY, THAT IN FACT THE PRESIDENT WOULD BE PULLING OUT. SOME OF OUR COMPETITORS I WOULD REMIND EVERY ONE HAD THAT WRONG INCLUDING CNBC EARLIER IN THE DAY. NONETHELESS HE DID PULL OUT AS WE ANTICIPATED. THE MARKET IS UP ON THE NEWS. GOOD TO SEE YOU. ARE YOU SURPRISED AT ALL? DID YOU FIGURE THIS ONE WAS COMING? WHAT DOES IT MEAN NOW?>>IT HAS BEEN COMING, TRISH, FOR A LONG TIME. THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO TALK ABOUT THIS HISTORIC MOMENT AND SHARE WITH YOUR AUDIENCE. AS WE LISTENED, I JUST KIND OF THOUGHT BACK TO PRESIDENT RONALD REAGAN. I HAVE WRITTEN BOOKS ON REAGAN’S WRITINGS. THIS WAS REAGANESQUE IN THE SENSE THAT IT SHOWED EXTRAORDINARY LEADERSHIP AND

Here’s how the new NAFTA deal is different


WAS THEIR MOMENT TO SHINE. AND SHINE, EVERYBODY DID THIS MORNING. STARTING WITH THE HISTORIC SIGNING OF THAT U.S. CANADA MEXICO DEAL AND SOME MODERNIZED VERSION OF THE NORTH AMERICAN FREE TRADE AGREEMENT. PRESIDENT TRUMP FIRST TO SPEAK AT THE SIGNING CEREMONY, ACKNOWLEDGING THAT SOMETIMES VERY TOUGH RHETORIC THROWN BACK AND FORTH DURING MONTHS OF NEGOTIATIONS BETWEEN HIM, CANADIAN PRIME MINISTER JUSTIN TRUDEAU AND MEXICAN PRESIDENT ENRIQUE PENA-NIETO.>>PRIME MINISTER JUSTIN TRUDEAU WHO HAS ALSO BECOME A GREAT FRIEND, THIS HAS BEEN A BATTLE AND BATTLES SOMETIMES MAKE GREAT FRIENDSHIPS SO IT’S REALLY TERRIFIC. LIZ: AND HE CALLED IT A GREAT FRIENDSHIP AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHAT REALLY HAD HAPPENED BEFORE THEN, BOY, THERE WERE SOME REAL BARBS BEING THROWN BACK AND FORTH. THIS INCLUDED A CROWD WATCHING TREASURY SECRETARY MNUCHIN HAD A BIG SMILE ON HIS FACE. I WATCHED HIM WALK IN. TRADE REPRESENTATIVE ROBERT LIGHTHIZER, JARED AND IVANKA TRUMP. PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID QUOTE, AFTER A LOT OF ABUSE AND BARBS, THIS AGREEMENT WAS QUOTE, WORTH IT. LET’S BRING IN ONE OF THE NEGOTIATORS IN A FOX BUSINESS EXCLUSIVE OF THE ORIGINAL NAFTA, AMBASSADOR CHARLES REESE. AMBASSADOR, WELCOME. I WANT TO BEGIN BY ASKING YOU JUST HOW DIFFERENT IS THIS NEW MODERNIZED NAFTA DEAL THAN WHAT YOU PUT TOGETHER 24 YEARS AGO WITH PRESIDENT GEORGE HERBERT WALKER BUSH?>>WELL, THIS IS A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT, LARGELY BECAUSE OF THE PASSAGE OF TIME. THERE ARE ELEMENTS THAT CAME REALLY OUT OF THE TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP, COVERAGE FOR DIGITAL TRADE, BETTER COVERAGE FOR DRUGS AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, THINGS THAT YOU WOULD HAVE DONE IF YOU HAD JUST SAT DOWN TO MODERNIZE THE NAFTA. THE BIG CHANGE BETWEEN THIS AND THE AGREEMENT THAT WE DID IN ’94 IS IN THE AUTO SECTOR, WHERE THERE ARE HIGHER RULES OF ORIGIN AND THERE IS A PROVISION REQUIRING SOME PROPORTION OF THE CONTENT OF AUTOS AND TRUCKS TO COME FROM HIGH WAGE, MORE THAN $16 AN HOUR LABOR. BUT MOST OF THE AGREEMENT INCLUDING THE AGRICULTURAL PROVISIONS THAT ARE REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT FOR THE U.S. FARM SECTOR IS PRETTY MUCH THE SAME. LIZ: THE PERCEPTION, I’M SURE THEY ALL WANTED, WAS THAT THEY WERE SELLING IT TO EACH OF THEIR COUNTRIES THIS MORNING AS A VICTORY, ALTHOUGH I WOULD HAVE TO SAY THAT CANADIAN PRIME MINISTER JUSTIN TRUDEAU SEEMED TO BE THE LEAST EXCITED ABOUT IT, AND HERE’S WHAT HE SAID. I WANT YOU TO THEN REACT TO JUSTIN TRUDEAU.>>THERE’S MUCH MORE WORK TO DO. WE NEED TO KEEP WORKING TO REMOVE THE TARIFFS ON STEEL AND ALUMINUM BETWEEN OUR COUNTRIES. LIZ: WHAT ABOUT THAT? WILL THERE BE A QUICK MOVE?>>WELL, I DON’T THINK SO. THIS WAS THE MOMENT FOR THE SORT OF GENEROSITY OF SPIRIT TO LIFT THIS STEEL AND ALUMINUM TARIFF WHICH WERE PUT ON ON A NATIONAL SECURITY BASIS AND THE CANADIANS HAVE TAKEN THIS VERY BADLY. THEY ARE ONE OF OUR LONGEST AND OLDEST ALLIES, AND THEY HAVE THIS LONG PEACEFUL LAND BORDER WITH US AND THEY FIND IT SORT OF PERSONALLY OR SORT OF NATIONALLY OFFENSIVE THAT WE RESTRICT STEEL AND ALUMINUM IMPORTS ON NATIONAL SECURITY GROUNDS. I THINK THEY HAD HOPED THAT IN THE END GAME BEFORE THE SIGNATURE, THEY COULD HAVE GOTTEN THAT RELIEVED. BUT THEY COULD NOT. LIZ: I NEED TO TALK ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS NEXT. THIS IS STILL A MOVING TARGET. ALL THREE COUNTRIES HAVE TO HAVE THIS RATIFIED BY THEIR LEGISLATIVE BODIES. NOW, CONGRESS HAS TO LOOK AT IT BUT THERE ARE A BUNCH OF OTHER ISSUES THAT HAVE TO HAPPEN AHEAD OF THAT, INCLUDING I GUESS THE PRESIDENT HAS, WHAT, ABOUT 60 DAYS TO REPORT TO CONGRESS THE CHANGES IN THE U.S. LAW AND THEN THERE’S ABOUT 105 DAY AGREEMENT, WITHIN THE 105 DAYS WHERE THE TRADE COMMISSION HAS TO TALK ABOUT THE IMPACT ON THE U.S. ECONOMY, BUT THEN IT GOES TO CONGRESS, AND WE HAVE A NEW CONGRESS HERE. WE HAVE A DEMOCRATIC CONTROLLED HOUSE AND I’M NOT SO SURE THAT ANYBODY’S AS WORRIED ABOUT THAT AS MAYBE SOME OF THE SENATE MEMBERS. ROBERT LIGHTHIZER HAS SPOKEN TO THE PRESS AFTER AND HE TOLD US, HE WAS MOST ANIMATED, LET ME JUST SAY THAT, WHEN ASKED ABOUT WHETHER DEMOCRATS WOULD BE FIGHTING THIS. HE SAID WE WANT DEMOCRATS HAPPY ON THIS AND THIS HAS BEEN A BIPARTISAN DEAL FROM THE START. SO I’LL TELL YOU SOMETHING, YOU LOOK AT WHAT THAT TONE IS, AND NOW YOU SEE THAT IN THE PAST HOUR OR SO, SENATOR MARCO RUBIO IS TWEETING THAT HE HATES THIS DEAL. HE THINKS IT’S TERRIBLE. AND HE IS ON THE SAME SIDE IN A WAY AS SENATOR LIZ WARREN. WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT?>>YEAH, WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT. I THINK THE MOST IMPORTANT THING ABOUT THIS WHOLE PROCESS THAT WE HAVE IN THE FUTURE IS THAT THE EXISTING NAFTA STAYS IN EFFECT. THE BIGGEST RISK THAT WE HAD WAS THAT FOR SOME REASON OR ANOTHER, THESE NEGOTIATIONS WOULD FAIL AND THE NAFTA WOULD — THE PRESIDENT WOULD PULL THE UNITED STATES OUT OF NAFTA ON SIX MONTHS’ NOTICE. THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A LITTLE LIKE BREXIT. A CLIFF EDGE THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN DEVASTATING FOR BUSINESS FOR THE STOCK MARKET AND SO FORTH. WE’RE NOT THERE. SO WE HAVE THE NEXT STEPS ARE PART OF WHAT USED TO BE JOKINGLY CALLED FAST TRACK WHICH ISN’T ALL THAT FAST, BUT IF THESE PROCEDURAL STEPS ARE MADE, WHAT HAPPENS IS THAT THE ADMINISTRATION GETS A STRAIGHT UP OR DOWN VOTE ON THE AGREEMENT WITHOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF AMENDMENTS. IT MAY TAKE REALLY QUITE SOME TIME. THERE IS NO TIME LIMIT ON CONGRESS ITSELF IN DOING THAT UP OR DOWN VOTE. AND THE ADMINISTRATION WILL TRY TO BUILD A BIPARTISAN COALITION IN FAVOR OF THIS. THERE ARE REPUBLICANS WHO WILL BE DOUBTFUL OF ITS MORE RESTRICTIVE ASPECTS AND THERE WILL BE DEMOCRATS THAT WILL BE ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT THE PROVISIONS IN AUTO TRADE WHICH SEEM TO BENEFIT THE LABOR UNIONS. WE’LL HAVE TO SEE HOW IT PLAYS OUT POLITICALLY. I THINK THAT THE DEMOCRATS WILL BE FUNDAMENTALLY A LITTLE
