American businesses are worried about China 2025, not the trade deficit: Carlos Gutierrez


FORD’S ALLEGATIONS AGAINST KAVANAUGH DATING BACK TO THEIR HIGH SCHOOL YEARS. LET ME GET TO THE PRESIDENT TRUMP TRADE WARS.>>>AT THE FORMAL SPEECH OF THE UNITED NATION HOURS AGO, CHINA VENDOR THAT IT WILL NOT BE BLACKMAILED ON TRADE. THAT WAS RIGHT AFTER THIS MORNING WHEN FORMER TREASURY SECRETARY ROBERT RUBIN WEIGHED IN ON PRETENSIONS DURING A Q&A SESSION WITH THE MAN CHINA SENT IN PLACE OF PRESIDENT XI. FOREIGN AFFAIRS MINISTER SPOKE ON THE COUNCIL OF FOREIGN RELATIONS. HAD A CHANCE TO PRESENT THEIR ON CHINA’S INSISTENCE THAT THE US BUSINESSES HAVE A CHINESE PARTNER IF THEY WANT TO DO BUSINESS IN CHINA. EVEN SECRETARY RUBEN SAID THE MAN WHO DEALT FOR YEARS UNLESS LISTEN TO THAT EXCHANGE.>>IT IS NO SURPRISE THAT THE US GOVERNMENT SPECIFICALLY, TRUMP ADMINISTRATION, WOULD LIKE CHINA TO DROP THE REQUIREMENT THAT AMERICAN BUSINESSES WANT TO DO BUSINESS IN CHINA HAVE TO HAVE A CHINESE PARTNER. THE CONCERN IS THAT THE CHINESE PARTNER MAY, LET THEY BORROW, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY. WILL USE A NICE WORD THERE. IS CHINA WILLING TO DROP THIS REQUIREMENT IN THE SPIRIT OF, AS YOU SAID AT THE BEGINNING OF YOUR SPEECH, GETTING US CHINA RELATIONSHIPS BACK ON TRACK? THANK YOU.>>[INAUDIBLE] [INAUDIBLE]>>IF YOU SPEAK TO AMERICAN COMPANIES TODAY IN ORDER TO GET ACCESS TO CHINA AND MORE AREAS THEY’RE REQUIRED TO ENTER AND PARTNERSHIPS OR TRANSFER TECHNOLOGY AND THAT’S UNDERMINING BUSINESS SUPPORT FOR THE AMERICAN CHINESE RELATIONSHIP. LIZ: WHEN HE DIDN’T ANSWER MY QUESTION, WE GOT THE ASSIST FROM RUBEN. WE NOW GET IN THE SYSTEM FORMER COMMERCE SECRETARY CARLOS IN A FOXBUSINESS EXCLUSIVE. HE SAID TO US THAT AMERICA SELF IMAGINES SUSPICION ABOUT CHINA IS A SERIOUS STRATEGIC MISJUDGMENT. IS THIS SELF IMAGINES THAT THEY ARE UNFAIR IN TRADE OR IN DOING BUSINESS WITH THE AMERICANS?>>THIS IS PART OF THE DISCUSSION AROUND THE STRATEGIC DOCUMENT AND NATIONAL SECURITY STRATEGY THAT WAS ISSUED. IT BASICALLY SAID CHINA’S RISE WILL IMPACT THE US. IT’S A DIFFICULT THING TO DO TO TELL SOMEONE THAT YOU WANT TO KEEP THEM DOWN. THAT IS THE WAY CHINA DID IT. BUT YES, THIS IS THE BIG ISSUE AND CHINA 2025 WHICH IS THEIR PLAN TO HAVE THEIR OWN DATA AND TO KEEP DATA LOCALIZED – THAT IS WHAT WE SHOULD BE TALKING ABOUT. WERE TALKING ABOUT TARIFFS AND SO THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENT THINGS HERE. ONE IS THE TRADE DEFICIT IN THE OTHER IS CHINA 2025. BUSINESSES ARE WORRIED ABOUT THE 2025, NOT THE TRADE DEFICIT. LIZ: BEFORE CHINA 2025 US BUSINESSES THAT WENT INTO CHINA WERE FORCED TO GET A PARTNER AND GIVE UP OR EXCHANGE TECHNOLOGICAL KNOW-HOW AND PROPRIETARY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY. THAT IS WHAT I WAS ASKING. WOULD THEY BE WILLING TO DROP THAT IN ORDER TO END THE TRADE WAR BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT I THINK PRESIDENT TRUMP WOULD LIKE TO SEE IN CHINA IS NOT BUDGING ON THAT.>>HE SAID THAT THERE HAS BEEN NO LEGISLATION ON THAT. HERE’S THE . LIZ: TALK TO [INAUDIBLE] THEY’VE ALL HAD THEIR STUFF TAKEN.>>AND WHAT TO DO HAPPEN IS THEY GET A PARTNER IN THE US COMPANY AND THAT PARTNER GOES OFF AND BUILDS HIS OWN PLANS. THE QUESTION IS . LIZ: THEFT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY.>>RIGHT, BUT WE HAVE TO BE CAREFUL THAT THE JOINT VENTURE PARTNER IS THE MEMBER OF THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT AND GET THAT WE BLOW THAT SOMETIMES. THAT MEANS THE GOVERNMENT. LIZ: YOU WERE ALSO THE CEO OF KELLOGG’S, THE CEREAL COMPANY, FARMERS ARE NOW DEALING WITH A TRADE SITUATION WHETHER IT BE WITH CANADA, MEXICO OR CHINA AND US SOYBEAN SUPPLIES ARE RISING TO 11 YOUR HIGH BECAUSE CHINA NOT EXACTLY BUYING OUR SOYBEANS BECAUSE OF THE BATTLE SO HOW WILL THIS AFFECT CONSUMER PRICES?>>IS A BIG HIT FOR FARMERS BECAUSE OF EXCESS INVENTORY AND TOO MUCH PRODUCT. THAT IS GOING TO MAKE PRICES COLLAPSED AND THE QUESTION IS THE TOBIN DOLLAR SUBSIDY THAT THE PRESIDENT HAS PUT IN PLACE, IS THAT ENOUGH TO OFFSET WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU HAVE A COLLAPSE IN FARM PRICES.

Dan Bongino: Comey’s legacy is a stain on the FBI


BAGS AND TAKING DEEP BREATHS, INDEED. JOINING US NOW, FORMER SECRET SERVICE DAN BONGINO. COULD YOU BELIEVE THE ARROGANCE OF THAT PERSON? HE DOESN’T REALIZE WE KNOW WHAT HE DID, AND WE KNOW WHEN HE DID IT?>>YEAH. LOU, THE EUPHEMISMS GAME, SPYING, SURVEILLANCE, YOU KNOW, UNAUTHORIZED, UNDOCUMENTED VIEWING OF PEOPLE, WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT, IS A MAGIC ACT FOR IDIOTS. AND COMEY LIKES TO PLAY THAT LITTLE GAME WITH PEOPLE. EVERYBODY’S CALLED THIS SPYING, LOU. SPYING AS BILL BARR SAID APPROPRIATELY IS A FINE ENGLISH WORD THAT DESCRIBES EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED. AND LET’S JUST WITH CLEAR HERE, LOU, THE EVIDENCE IS OVERWHELMING THAT JIM COMEY’S A LIAR. THEY USED NATIONAL SECURITY LETTERS, USED FOREIGN SPIES TO GATHER INTELLIGENCE ON TRUMP. THAT’S ALREADY BEEN REPORTED ON OTHER OUTLETS, BY THE WAY, LEFT-LEANING OUTLETS, RIGHT? THEY USED A FISA COURT — LOU: WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT’S BEEN REPORTED ON LEFT-LEANING OUTLETS? IT’S BEEN REPORTED ON THIS OUTLET –>>I’M JUST TALKING ABOUT THE FOREIGN SPIES. I MEAN, EVERYONE FROM “THE NEW YORK TIMES” ON. “THE GUARDIAN” AND CNN HAVE ALREADY REPORTED A YEAR AGO ON THE FACT THAT FOREIGN SPIES, YES, SPIES, LOU, WERE FEEDING INFORMATION TO SPIES IN THE UNITED STATES ABOUT THE TRUMP PEOPLE. I MEAN, I CAN PULL THE ARTICLE UP ON MY PHONE RIGHT NOW AND SHOW IT TO YOU. IT’S OUT THERE FOR EVERYONE TO SEE. NOT TO MENTION ONE FINAL POINT, THEY USED AN ACTUAL SPY ALREADY REPORTED ON BY “THE NEW YORK TIMES.” I DON’T KNOW WHAT COMEY’S DOING. HIS LEGACY ‘S ALREADY A STAIN ON THE FBI. LOU: [INAUDIBLE] BECAUSE HE’S DOING THE SAME THING.>>WHAT’S THAT? LOU: HE IS SITTING THERE SPEWING NONSENSE TALKING ABOUT WE INVESTIGATE, AND THEN YOU HEAR COMEY PARROTING ALL HE SAID BEFORE THE COMMITTEE YESTERDAY, YOU KNOW, DEBATING THE SEMANTICS, THE ETYMOLOGY OF ALL OF THIS. THESE PEOPLE ARE OUT OF THEIR MINDS. WHO DO THEY THINK THEY’RE KIDDING? AND — [INAUDIBLE CONVERSATIONS] WHEN BILL BARR SAID PERFECTLY GOOD ANGLO-SAXON WORD, I WANTED TO CHEER BECAUSE HE’S SPEAKING PLAINLY, DIRECTLY. BECAUSE HE HAS A HIGH IQ AND THE ABILITY TO DO SO. THESE IDIOTS WHO RUN AROUND SPEWING LATIN DERIVATIVES ARE USUALLY JUST THAT. I WON’T REPEAT THE WORD THAT I JUST USED.>>YEAH. [LAUGHTER] THE SHAME OF THIS WHOLE THING, LOU, AND I’M WITH YOU 100%, AND I’M GLAD YOU BROUGHT UP CHRISTOPHER WRAY YESTERDAY. HE SOLD US OUT. THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY NO REASON TO PLAY THIS GAME. CHRISTOPHER WRAY IS ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS IN THE COSMOS. HE HAD THE ABILITY YESTERDAY TO REESTABLISH FAITH IN THE FBI AND COME OUT AND SAY, LISTEN, A VERY SIMPLE ANSWER, LOU. ALL HE HAD TO SAY THERE’S AN INVESTIGATION GOING ON RIGHT NOW INTO SPYING, YES, SPYING. WE’RE LOOKING INTO IT, AND MS. SHAHEEN, WHO HE WAS TALKING TO, THE DEMOCRAT SENATOR, WHEN I GET TO THE BOTTOM OF IT, I WILL BE BACK HERE AND HAPPILY TALK ABOUT IT. WHAT DOES HE DO? I WOULDN’T USE THE WORD SPYING. THEY WERE PERFECTLY CONTENT WITH USING THE WORD SPYING WHEN THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT THE PATRIOT ACT WITH GEORGE BUSH. IT’S RIDICULOUS. LOU: SO WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE CADILLAC ARE MEMORANDUM AT THE STATE DEPARTMENT AND THEY SEALED IT, CHRISTOPHER WRAY TOOK RESPONSIBILITY FOR SEALING IT TWO WEEKS AGO, AND INSTEAD OF SHARING THE DOCUMENTED KNOWLEDGE, FIRSTHAND, OF THE FACT THAT THE STEELE DOSSIER HAD A POLITICAL MOTIVATION — OH AND, YES, A DEADLINE OF NOVEMBER 6TH I BELIEVE IT WAS, 2016. ALL OF THIS HAS BEEN SEALED FOR 25 YEARS BY THAT SAME FBI THAT WAS ENGAGED IN SPYING.>>YEAH. NO WORRIES, LOU. CHRISTOPHER WRAY SAID WE COULD SEE THE MEMO IN 2041. I COULD BE DEAD BY THEN, GOD FORBID. 2041. THE MEMO, SO THE AUDIENCE TOTALLY UNDERSTANDS AND COMPLETELY GETS WHAT THIS IS, THIS IS PROOF POSITIVE THAT THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT KNEW CHRISTOPHER STEELE’S INFORMATION USED TO SPY ON DONALD TRUMP WAS POLITICAL INFORMATION. IT WAS NOT LEGITIMATE INTELLIGENCE. THEY KNEW IT BEFORE THE FISA WAS ISSUED. AND NOW LISA PAGE’S TESTIMONY, THE FBI LAWYER WHO WAS WORKING ON THIS, MAKES A WORLD OF SENSE WHEN SHE SEEMS GENUINELY SURPRISED UNDER OATH IN CONGRESS THAT THE SAME SOURCE THEY WERE USING, STEELE, WAS ALSO REPORTING TO PLACES LIKE THE STATE DEPARTMENT AND, I BELIEVE, TO THE CIA TOO. JOHN BRENNAN WAS THE PUPPET MASTER OF THIS WHOLE THING, AND I BELIEVE HE PLAYED THE FBI FOR FOOLS, AND COMEY BOUGHT INTO IT. LOU: YOU KNOW, AND I HAVEN’T RULED OUT A STRONG ROLE FOR THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT YET EITHER. AND MY GUESS IS YOU HAVEN’T EITHER.>>NO, LOU, BUT THAT’S NOT EVEN IN DISPUTE. I DON’T KNOW WHY — WHY WOULD YOU EVEN RULE THAT OUT? “THE GUARDIAN” AND CNN OF ALL PLACES HAVE ALREADY REPORTED ON THIS. YOU KNOW, THE FACT THAT THE BRITISH FED INTEL TO THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT ABOUT THE TRUMP TEAM IS NOT IN DISPUTE. I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHY THIS IS CONTROVERSIAL. CNN — [INAUDIBLE CONVERSATIONS] LOU: JUST WANTED TO SEE YOU GO BANANAS.>>YES, YOU GOT ME TO GO BANANAS. [LAUGHTER] IT DRIVES ME CRAZY E WHEN HOSTS, YOU KNOW, OUT THERE WHO ARE AFRAID TO TOUCH THIS STUFF. IT’S ALREADY BEEN REPORTED ON THAT THE BRITISH INTEL SPIED ON TRUMP. THIS IS NOT CONTROVERSIAL. YOU GOT ME GOOD ON THAT ONE, WELL DONE. LOU: I THOUGHT I WAS DISGUISING MY QUIVERING, TREMBLING HANDS –>>I’M GLAD IT’S STILL EARLY AND I DON’T HAVE TO GO TO BED AFTER THAT. I’M ALL EXCITED NOW. [LAUGHTER] LOU: KEEP IT THERE. I’M GLAD YOU TOOK IT PERSONALLY. THAT 25 YEARS UNDER SEAL, YOU’LL MAKE IT, DAN, YOU’LL MAKE IT.

Democrats have turned politics into a farce: Varney


YOU. AND NOW THIS.>>WHAT AN EMBARASSMENT. THE DEMOCRATS TURNED POLITICS INTO A NAME-CALLING FARCE. THEY JUST CAN’T CONCEAL THEIR HATRED AN CONTEMPT FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP T WAS ALL ON FULL DISPLAY THIS WEEK WITH THE BARR HEARINGS. LOOK AT THIS, JUST PLAIN SILLY. REPRESENTATIVE STEVE COHEN EATING FRIED CHICKEN IN THE HEARING ROOM, IMPLYING THE ATTORNEY GENERAL WAS A CHICKEN FOR NOT SHOW UP FOR ANOTHER ROUND EVER INSULTING SLANDER. I CALL THAT JUVENILE. THINGS TURNED SERIOUS WHEN SPEAKER PELOSI SAID MR. BARR HAD LIED TO CONGRESS. THEM’S FIGHTING WORDS. WHAT WAS THE LIE EXACTLY? LET ME TRY TO EXPLAIN IT. BOB MUELLER SAID HE HAD SOME MISGIVINGS ABOUT BARR’S SUMMARY OF HIS REPORT. LATER BARR SAID HE DIDN’T KNOW WHETHER MUELLER SUPPORTED HIS SUMMARY. THAT IS WHAT SPEAKER PELOSI CONSIDER AS LIE. ON THIS, HANGS THE FUTURE OF THE REPUBLIC. DEMOCRAT LEADERS HAVE THROWN A TEMPER TANTRUM, ALL RIGHT? ENTER KIM STRASSEL “WALL STREET JOURNAL” COLUMNIST. TODAY SHE WRITES, THAT WHAT REALLY RATTLED THE DEMOCRATS IS MR. BARR’S INVESTIGATION OF HOW THE RUSSIA PROBE GOT STARTED IN THE FIRST PLACE. OW OH. THAT SPELLS TROUBLE. HE IS LOOKING AT THE DOSSIER, WHICH HILLARY CLINTON FUNDED. HE WANTS TO KNOW WHO LEAKED CLASSIFIED DETAILS OF THE PROBE. THAT IS A CRIMINAL OFFENSE. THE ATTORNEY GENERAL IS ON IT. ONE LAST POINT. “THE NEW YORK TIMES” REVEALS TODAY THAT THE FEDS DID INDEED SPY ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN IN 2016 IS. WHO ORDERED IT? WHO KNEW ABOUT IT? ALL OF THIS EXPLAINS WHY THE DEMOCRATS ARE FURIOUS AT THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. HE IS GOING TO FIND OUT WHAT SOME VERY POWERFUL PEOPLE WERE

Fox News panel breaks down Trump’s new feud with Omar, Tlaib


♪ ♪>>WE WILL NOT ALLOW TO ISRAEL PEOPLE WHO WORK TO DELEGITIMIZE THE JEWISH STATE.>>THE GOVERNMENT AND PARTICULAR PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU ARE BEHAVING LIKE A DICTATORSHIP IN THE SENSE THAT THEY CAN’T TOLERATE DISSENT, THEY CAN’T TOLERATE CRITICISM.>>THEY ARE SO ANTI-JEWISH, I DID SPEAK TO PEOPLE UP THERE. I DON’T ENCOURAGE OR DISCOURAGE.>>IT SETS A HORRIBLE PRECEDENT FOR ISRAEL IN MAKING THIS DECISION. WHY WOULD ANY COUNTRY MAKE A DECISION TO DENY A UNITED STATES CONGRESSMAN ACCESS TO THEIR COUNTRY? DO THEY NOT BELIEVE THE UNITED STATES HAS DONE A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT FOR ISRAEL?>>John: WE ARE BACK WITH OUR PANEL. THE CONGRESSMAN THERE, A DEMOCRAT IS JOINED BY VIRTUALLY EVERY OTHER DEMOCRAT IN BLASTING PRESIDENT TRUMP AND BENJAMIN NETANYAHU FOR THIS DECISION, HOW SAYS THE PANEL?>>FROM THE ISRAELI SECURITY STANDPOINT POINT OF VIEW, THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THEM TO SAY ACTUALLY, IF YOU ARE SUPPORTING SOMETHING THAT IS MANIFESTLY AGAINST THE ISRAELI NATIONAL SECURITY INTERESTS IN TERMS OF ECONOMIC BOYCOTT, DIVESTMENT, THAT AIMS TO — BUT THE YOUNG PROGRESSIVE ELEMENTS THAT ARE COMING IN AND NOW WITH THE DEMOCRATIC CAUCUS HAVING TO SURROUND THESE TWO MEMBERS OF CONGRESS, THERE IS A CHALLENGE THAT IT FORCES THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY TO COALESCE IN A WAY THAT PERHAPS MAKES THEM MORE ANTI-ISRAEL.>>John: IT WAS INTERESTING TO HEAR A MEMBER OF THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY BLASTING ISRAEL FOR NOT LETTING HER, NOT LETTING HIS MEMBERS OF CONGRESS INTO THE COUNTRY — SHE’S BEEN BLOCKED FROM COMING INTO THE UNITED STATES.>>THERE IS A WIDESPREAD REJECTION OF BORDERS AND NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY THAT WE ARE SEEING IN SOME GROUPS ON THE LEFT. THE FIRST QUESTION THAT NEEDS TO BE ANSWERED IS WHETHER ISRAEL HAS THE RIGHT TO DETERMINE WHO COMES INTO THEIR COUNTRY AND THEY HAVE A LAW FORBIDDING ENTRY TO NONCITIZENS BOYCOTTING ISRAE ISRAEL. THEY WERE WILLING TO PROVIDE THESE EXCEPTIONS TO THESE TWO MEMBERS OF CONGRESS BUT THEN THEY FOUND OUT THE ITINERARY OF THESE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WHICH THE AMBASSADOR TO THE U.S. DESCRIBED AS A BDS CIRCUS. FINDING OUT THEY WERE COMING NOT AS AN OUTREACH MISSION OR TO FIND FACTS ABOUT ISRAEL BUT TO DO SOMETHING THAT WAS SO POLITICAL, IT WOULD BE DIRECT VIOLATION OF AN ISRAELI LAW, THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO THIS. IT’S UNFORTUNATE BECAUSE IT’S GOOD FOR PEOPLE TO VISIT ISRAEL TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE COUNTRY AND UNDERSTAND THE COMPLEXITY OF THE SITUATION THERE, NOT JUST ABOUT ISRAEL BUT THE PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES AS WELL. ONE HOPES SHE WILL BE ABLE TO VISIT UNDER DIFFERENT CIRCUMSTANCES.>>John: SOME REPUBLICANS HAVE SUGGESTED THIS IS A BAD MOVE, SENATOR MARTHA McSALLY IS NOT AMONG THEM. LISTEN TO HER TAKE ON ALL OF THIS.>>RASHIDA IS A PALESTINIAN WHO IS COMING TO VISIT HER COUNTRY, HER FAMILY, HER VILLAGE, HER FATHER AND HER MOTHER, THEIR ROOTS ARE PALESTINIAN. HER GRANDFATHER, HER GRANDMOTHE GRANDMOTHER, THEY ARE FROM PALESTINE AND THEY TALK ALL THE TIME ABOUT HOW SHE IS PALESTINIAN.>>ISRAEL HAS A RIGHT TO DECIDE WHO CAN COME UNDER THEIR COUNTRY, I LOVE ISRAEL, I’VE BEEN DEPLOYED TO THE MIDDLE EAST FIVE TIMES AND I THINK BOTH OMAR AND RASHIDA TO TLAIB, THEIR A AND RASHIDA TO TLAIB, THEIR T AND RASHIDA TO TLAIB, THEIR O AND RASHIDA TO TLAIB, THEIR S HAVE BEEN DANGEROUS.>>John: INTERESTING POLITICS ON BOTH SIDES.>>IT’S IMPORTANT TO SEPARATE THE POLICY FROM THE POLITICS. ISRAEL IS A SAYING WE’RE GOING TO BOYCOTT THE BOYCOTT HERS AND THIS BDS MOVEMENT HAS ANTI-SEMITIC ROUTES AND IT’S RADICAL. THESE ARE THE FIRST TWO MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TO HOLD THOSE ANTI-ISRAEL VIEWS. THEY HAVE DONE THIS WITH OTHER ALLIES OF OTHER COUNTRIES, THE POLITICS ARE MUCH MORE TRICKY FOR ISRAEL. THEY RELY ON BIPARTISAN SUPPORT IN CONGRESS, ESPECIALLY DEMOCRATIC SUPPORT. ALL THE ISRAEL VOTES RELY ON THE MAJORITY DEMOCRATS. YOU ARE LOSING THAT BIPARTISANSHIP.>>YOU THINK ISRAEL SHOULD NOT HAVE BANNED THESE TWO.>>THEY ARE LOSING THE P.R. BATTLE, THAT’S A LOT OF THE GAME FOR THIS ISSUE.>>PEOPLE NEED TO UNDERSTAND THE SERIOUSNESS OF THE EFFORTS AND THERE’S A LOT OF TOLERANCE OF LICATA MOVEMENTS ON THE AMERICAN LEFT. IT’S IMPORTANT FOR PEOPLE TO SPEAK OUT AGAINST THOSE MOVEMENTS AND THE HARM THEY CAUSE INSTEAD OF JUST TOLERATING MEN.>>THIS WAS NOT GOING TO BE AN OFFICIAL CONGRESSIONAL DELEGATION.>>THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY BEING A NECESSARY ALLY FOR LONG-STANDING SECURITY STRATEGY IS SOMETHING I THINK MEANS IT’S ON THE BALANCE EVEN IF THE BDS THING IS A BIG PROBLEM.>>WE HAVE ALSO BANNED ISRAELI PARLIAMENTARY MEMBERS, A MEMBER OF THE KNESSET WAS NOT ALLOWED TO COME BECAUSE OF THE VIEWS HE HELD.>>IT’S IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT TRUMP WAS A BIG PROPONENT OF NOT LETTING THESE TWO MEMBERS TO GO TO ISRAEL. HE WANTED THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY TO BE REPRESENTATIVE OF TLAIB AND OMAR’S VALUES. THERE’S CERTAINLY NOT A LOT OF SUPPORT IN ISRAEL FOR THESE TWO BACKBENCHERS ON THE DEMOCRATIC SIDE. THE NETANYAHU GOVERNMENT ORIGINALLY SAID IT WAS OKAY FOR THEM TO COME. TRUMP TWEETED OUT THAT HE WOULD VIEW THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE AND HE QUICKLY SAW BACKTRACKING FROM

Trump reportedly wants to buy Greenland: Is it a crazy idea?


WITH US. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE TONIGHT. SO, ROBIN, IT’S BEEN APPROACHED BEFORE STRATEGICALLY. IT’S AN INTERESTING AREA FOR THE UNITED STATES. IT’S SORT OF THE MIRROR, KIND OF, OF ALASKA ON THE OTHER SIDE WITH CHANNELS THROUGH THE ARTIC OCEAN. IS THIS A CRAZY IDEA?>>LOOK, GEO STRATEGICALLY, THIS COULD BE A GREAT IDEA IF IT WERE FOR SALE. BUT, THEY HAVE MADE IT PERFECTLY CLEAR THAT IT’S NOT LIKE YOU JUST SAID IN THE LEAD IN TO THIS SEGMENT. I THINK THAT HONESTLY THIS IS A GREAT DISTRACTION. AND THE PRESIDENT IS JUST FANTASTIC AT DOING THIS. WE SAW A LOT OF TWEETS FROM HIM YESTERDAY ABOUT THE ECONOMY, REASSURING US WITH THAT I KNOW VERTED YIELD CURVE THAT EVERYTHING IS GOING SMOOTH. AND, YOU KNOW, WE HAD THAT LEAKED EXECUTIVE ORDER PROPOSING THE INTERNET. I DON’T THINK THAT’S GOING ANYWHERE. THIS IS A FANTASTIC DISTRACTION. LOOK, IT’S OUR LEAD STORY TONIGHT. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT SOMETHING THAT PROBABLY WON’T HAPPEN. IF IT DID, I THINK IT PROBABLY WOULD BE GREAT FOR US. LIKE I SAID, GEO STRATEGICALLY, ESPECIALLY WITH THE URANIUM RESOURCES, MARTHA.>>Martha: YEAH. IT’S INTERESTING. BECAUSE DURING THIS DISCUSSION AND THE REPORT, IT TALKS ABOUT HOW THERE WAS DISCUSSION THAT DENMARK WAS HAVING SOME FINANCIAL TROUBLE OVER ITS STEANGS TO GREENLAND. AND THAT WAS SORT OF WHAT PROMPTED KIND OF THIS INITIAL CONVERSATION AND THERE WAS THE DISCUSSION THAT IT HAD BEEN TRIED BEFORE. HERE IS SECRETARY MIKE POMPEO BACK ON MAY 6TH IN FINLAND. WATCH THIS.>>THE ARTIC IS AT THE FOREFRONT OF OPPORTUNITY AND ABUNDANCE. IT HOUSES 13% OF THE WORLD’S UNDISCOVERED OIL, 30% OF ITS UNDISCOVERED GAS. AND AN ABUNDANCE OF URANIUM, RARE MINERALS, GOLD DIAMONDS AND MILLIONS OF SQUARE MILES OF UNTAPPED RESOURCES.>>Martha: SO, MICHAEL, HOW SERIOUS DO YOU THINK THIS IDEA MIGHT BE?>>IT’S QUITE SERIOUS, ACTUALLY. I MEAN, THAT’S THE THING ABOUT LAND IS THAT GOD ISN’T MAKING ANY MORE OF IT, IT’S USUALLY A GOOD INVESTMENT. REAL ESTATE HAS PAID OFF WELL FOR THE UNITED STATES, THE LOUISIANA PURCHASE. THE ANNEXATION OF TEXAS, CALIFORNIA. ANOTHER THING THAT MIKE POMPEO POINTED OUT IF THE DIRE WARNINGS ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING DO COME TRUE, YOU COULD BE LOOKING AT NEW TRADING ROUTES BEING OPENED UP THROUGH THE ARTIC, THIS COULD BE IN HIS WORDS THE SUE HE SEE OR PANAMA CANAL OF THE 21st CENTURY. I DO THINK IT’S A SERIOUS THING TO MENTION. OBVIOUSLY WE TRIED TO BUY IT IN 1946 FOR $100 MILLION. THE PRICE MIGHT BE GOING UP. I DON’T THINK IT’S TOTALLY OFF OF THE TABLE. FROM A GEO STRATEGIC POINT OF VIEW, I THINK IT’S TOTALLY WORTH BRINGING UP. TO THE QUESTION OF WHETHER OR NOT DONALD TRUMP IS MERELY DISTRACTING. IT IS TRUE THAT DONALD TRUMP IS THE KING OF CONTROLLING THE MEDIA NARRATIVE. HE HAS THIS KNACK OF BRINGING UP ACTUALLY SERIOUS CONCEPTS. AND BECAUSE HE IS THE ONE WHO IS BRINGING IT UP, PEOPLE DISMISS IT OUT OF HAND. I THINK IT’S A BRILLIANT IDEA. I THINK WE SHOULD LOOK FORWARD TO IT. IF DENMARK SAYS IT’S NOT FOR SALE, THAT SOUNDS LIKE THE BEGINNING OF A REAL NEGOTIATION. PERHAPS WE WILL ACTUALLY SEE THE ART OF THE DEAL.>>Martha: WELL, IT’S POSSIBLE. AND IT’S INTERESTING TO NOTE, ALSO, THAT CHINA WANTED TO BUILD THREE AIRPORT FACILITIES, YOU KNOW, THERE AND THAT WAS SORT OF SHUT DOWN BY THE UNITED STATES. SO THERE ARE DEFINITELY, RUSSIA, CHINA, THE UNITED STATES ARE ALL EXPRESSING SOME INTEREST IN THIS PART OF THE WORLD. AND I THINK WHENEVER THAT IS HAPPENING, YOU HAVE TO SORT OF LOOK AT IT AT LEAST WITH.>>Anna: LIT PARTICULAR SERIOUS EYE IN TERMS OF THE STRATEGIC IMPLICATIONS OF IT. AND IF IT’S TRUE THAT DENMARK IS HAVING SOME FINANCIAL DIFFICULTIES WITH THEIR COMMITMENT TO GREENLAND, THAT ALSO IS AN OPEN QUESTION AS WELL. BUT I ALSO THINK THAT THEY ARE INTERESTED IN — I THINK THIS IS GOOD FOR GREENLAND, ROBIN BECAUSE TODAY AND YESTERDAY, EVERYBODY IS GOOGLING GREENLAND AND LOOKING AT IT AND LOOKING AT PICTURES OF GREENLAND. IT STRIKES ME THAT EVERYBODY HAS BEEN GOING TO ICELAND, RIGHT? ICELAND IS LIKE THE TOURIST CAPITAL OF THE WORLD. EVERYBODY YOU GO YOU SEE PICTURES OF THEMSELVES IN THE BLUE LAGOON MORE THAN 2 MILLION TOURISTS WENT TO ICELAND IN THE MOST RECENT TOURISM CALENDAR WHICH I THINK IS 2017. EVERYBODY WANTS TO GO THERE. GREEN LAND LOOKS AT THAT. THEY HAVE GOT ONLY 84,000 PEOPLE COMING TO GREENLAND, LIKE MAYBE THIS IS ALL GOOD FOR THEM.>>AND IT WILL BE INTERESTING, MARTHA, TO SEE EXACTLY HOW THIS WORKS WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP’S VISIT TO DENMARK NEXT MONTH TO SEE HOW FAR HE GETS WITH THESE CONVERSATIONS. AND, YEAH, I THINK IT’S PROBABLY GOOD FOR THEIR TOURISM. ON ONE HAND, YOU KNOW, MAKE LIGHT OF THE CONVERSATION. I ALMOST WISH THAT HE WOULD PROPOSE TO BUY THE MALDIVES BECAUSE I SURE COULD USE A VACATION. BUT, YOU KNOW, I DON’T THINK THESE ARE HARMFUL DISCUSSIONS. IT’S DEFINITELY OUT OF LEFT FIELD. I JUST KNOW THAT, YOU KNOW, IF YOU LOOK AT OUR NATIONAL DEBT, DIVIDED UP PER CAP TAX WE ARE LOOKING AT OVER $65,000 PER PERSON. I DON’T THINK IT’S NECESSARILY THE RIGHT TIME

Several states challenge Trump admin ‘public charge’ rule


SEVERAL STATES ARE TAKING LEGAL ACTION AGAINST THE TRUMP MINISTRATION PUBLIC CHARGE POLICY THAT WOULD DENY GREEN CARDS TO APPLICANTS THAT RECEIVE LONG-TERM PUBLIC ASSISTANCE. LET’S BRING IN FORMER OVERSIGHT COUNCIL AT THE DHS AND THE SENIOR SENIOR ADVISOR AT THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION MIKE HOWELL. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING US. JUST TO BEGIN, HOW IMPACTFUL DO YOU THINK THE NEW POLICY WILL BE AS IT’S ROLLED OUT?>>I THINK THIS IS THE MOST CONSEQUENTIAL ACTION OF THIS POLICY. AND PERHAPS THE MOST CONSEQUENTIAL ACTION IN MANY DECADES FULL IN FOREST AND CARRIED OUT IT HAS MASSIVE IMPLICATIONS FOR THE INCOMING LEGAL POPULATION AND THOSE ALREADY IN THE COUNTRY.>>WE TALKED TO BEING FULLY ENFORCED WHAT YOU THINK THE LIKELIHOOD IS OF THAT. IT ALL DEPENDS ON THE AMOUNT OF ICE TO ACTUALLY REMOVE FOLKS. THEY HAVE MADE IT BIG POLICY OF THOSE TO LIMIT THE CAPACITY OF ICE TO THE EXTENT OF THOSE NUMBERS THEY ARE ABLE TO GET HIGHER. THERE IS MORE SPACE FOR FOLKS TO BE REMOVED.>>AGAINST THIS IN GENERAL. BROADLY FROM FOLKS THAT ARE RUNNING TO THE WHITE HOUSE. ADVOCACY ORGANIZATIONS AS WELL AS LAWSUITS. THERE IS SOME MULTITUDE OF STATES MORE THAN A DOZEN FILE INCLUDING ROBERT SANTOS. THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION MESSAGE IS CLEAR IF YOU ARE WEALTHY YOU ARE BLOCK YOUR REPORT YOU ARE NOT. IT FORCES THEM TO SACRIFICE AS THEIR DREAM FOR FOOD OR ROOF OVER THEIR CHILDREN’S HEAD. I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO THE ACTUAL RULE. LIKE A FULL UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT’S HAPPENING. THERE IS STILL AN ALLOWANCE FOR ASYLUM. AND HUMANITARIAN CASES AND ASKING FOR IMMIGRANTS TO BE WEALTHY. TO NOT BE RELIANT ON THE LIMITED SOCIAL SERVICES OF THIS COMPANY ARE RESERVED FOR AMERICANS. SPEAK TO WHY YOU THINK THE ROLL OUT NOW. IT HAS ROLLED OUT A NUMBER OF POLICIES. SOME HAVE BEEN CHALLENGED BY THE COURTS. WHY NOW?>>IS A GREAT QUESTION. THIS IS THE DAY ONE PRIORITY AT DHS IN THE DIRECTION OF THE WANTED TO DO IT RIGHT. THEY PUT IT THROUGH A VERY ROBUST PROCESS. IT TOOK WELL OVER TWO YEARS TO GET WHERE WE ARE NOW BUT NOW WE ARE VERY SOLID LEGAL FOUNDATION AND CAN SURVIVE A MYRIAD OF CHALLENGES. IF YOU LOOK AT SOME OF THE LOSSES THAT ARE COMING OUT OF CALIFORNIA AND THE FAR LEFT, THEY ARE REALLY MAKING A VALID LEGAL CLAIM THESE ARE POLICY OBJECTIONS. THE ADMINISTRATION IS A GOOD LEGAL FOOTING BECAUSE OF THE DELIVERANCE OF NATURE THAT THEY TOOK. BQ ONE OF THE THINGS THAT THEY TOOK. IS RELATED TO RACISM. BUT SPECIFICALLY WHEN IT COMES TO THIS POLICY NUMBER OF IMMIGRANT ORGANIZATIONS HAVE COME OUT AND PUSH BACK. AMONG THEM THE NATIONAL IMMIGRATION LAW CENTER. SHE WRITES IF YOU ARE NOT WHITE AND WEALTHY YOU ARE NO LONGER WEALTHY –DASH WELCOME WELCOME IN THIS COUNTRY. YOUR RESPONSE TO THIS IS SOMETHING TO RATE IMMIGRANTS. FROM OTHER COUNTRIES.>>I WOULD ENCOURAGE HER TO READ THE RULE. IT IS A RACIALLY NEUTRAL RULE IT DOES NOT CARE WHAT COLOR YOU ARE. IT APPLIES TO PEOPLE ACROSS THE BOARD. I’LL SHOW YOU, WHEREVER YOU WANT. IT IS RACIALLY NEUTRAL IS SIMPLY ASKING THE IMMIGRANTS WHO WISH TO COME INTO THIS

Libertarian candidates take on health care, tax reform


FOR. AND THAT IS A MEMO. FIRST UP, HEALTHCARE. ONE OF THE MOST DIVISIVE ISSUES FOR THE LAST DECADE AND IT IS DEFINITELY TOP OF THE VOTER’S MIND GOING INTO THE MIDTERMS ACCORDING TO BOXERS PULLING. WHITE HOUSE TERRY SARAH SANDERS HAS BEEN SHOW SO MUCH TONIGHT. TALK ABOUT THE PRESIDENT HELP YOU PLAN WHAT.>>HIS HEALTH CARE PLAN THAT HE LAID OUT CONDITIONS AND THE PRESIDENT WANTS TO LOWER PREMIUMS TO MAKE HEALTHCARE MORE AFFORDABLE NO ONE WILL BE CHARGED HIGHER PREMIUMS IF THEY KEEP THEIR COVERAGE AND NO ONE WILL BE DENIED COVERAGE. KENNEDY: PUBLICANS HAVE FAILED TO FIX THE DISASTER THAT DEMOCRATS USHERED IN SO WHAT WOULD A LIBERTY MINDED SOLUTION LOOK LIKE? SPECIAL PANEL TONIGHT. LIBERTARIAN CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK, VERY SHARP IS BACK ALONG WITH LIBERTARIAN CANDIDATE FOR SENATE IN VIRGINIA, MATT WATERS AND LIBERTARIAN CANDIDATE FOR CONGRESS IN THE SEVENTH DISTRICT IN PENNSYLVANIA. WELCOME, EVERYONE.>>LIKE TO BE HERE. KENNEDY: LET’S TALK HEALTHCARE. NOT FIGHTING EACH OTHER BUT WERE TRYING TO COME UP WITH A SOLUTION AND WORK TOGETHER TO DEFEAT THE ASTONISHMENT. [LAUGHTER]>>I THOUGHT WE WERE FIGHTING HERE, WILL BE DOING? [LAUGHTER] KENNEDY: LET’S TALK ABOUT THE CHALLENGES YOU HEAR FROM VOTERS.>>PEOPLE CARE ABOUT HEALTHCARE FOR SURE. THE FUNNY THING IS THE ASTONISHMENT PARTIES ARE BOTH FIGHTING OVER THAT NARROW POINT OF PRE-EXISTING CONDITION AND THAT IS AN OPENING FOR ME. IN THE DEBATES WE HAVE HAD I BEEN ABLE TO TURN AROUND ON THEM BADLY BECAUSE BOTH PARTIES, AS WE NO, CENTRALIZED HEALTHCARE IN WASHINGTON PRICES ARE SKYROCKETING AND PEOPLE FEEL BAD ABOUT THE OPTIONS THEY HAVE AND I CAN MAKE THE POINT THAT LOOK, MEDICARE WILL BE INSULTED STARTING IN 2026. KENNEDY: IT’S INSANE.>>IT’S INSANE. AND BOTH PARTIES ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR. THEY HAVE NO ANSWERS AND IGNORE THAT POINT SO I TURN IT AROUND AND I HAVE BEEN ANYTHING TO RESONATE WITH PEOPLE THAT THEY WANT SOMEONE BEING HONEST AND THAT IS HONEST. KENNEDY: IN YOUR THEME FOR YOUR ENTIRE CANDIDACY HAS BEEN SOMETHING DIFFERENT. YOU GIVE UP HEALTHCARE. YOU GAVE OR I SHOULD SAY HEALTH INSURANCE.>>THAT’S RIGHT. IT’S AMAZING. I’M WITH A NONPROFIT IN ITS GROUP OF PEOPLE THAT DECIDED TO OPT OUT OF HEALTH INSURANCE AND WE SHARE EACH OTHER’S MEDICAL EXPENSES. IN THE COST LAST YEAR A BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD OF MY FAMILY WAS 770 WE PAID $21,000 BUT THIS YEAR WE ARE UNDER 6,000. IT IS TRULY A MIRACLE WITH PEOPLE CAN TAKE OWNERSHIP OF THEIR HEALTH INSURANCE AND PUT US IN THE DRIVER SEAT AND THEN THINGS HAPPEN LIKE COSTS COME DOWN. KENNEDY: THAT’S A FASCINATING MODEL. I’D LIKE TO SEE SOMEONE LIKE YOU ELECTED SO YOU CAN HEAR MORE ABOUT THOSE OPTIONS BECAUSE WHAT THEY ARE OFFERING NOW IS A FALSE DICHOTOMY AND YOU, MY FRIEND, WHEN YOU ASSUME THE GOVERNMENT HERE IN NEW YORK STATE YOU’RE GOING TO BE TACKLING THE GREATEST BEHEMOTH.>>CORRECT. CUOMO CARE HERE. LOOKING AT MEDICAID FOR ALL IN HORRIBLE TWO-TIERED SYSTEM WOULD MAKE SURE THAT ALL THE BEST DOCTORS DON’T TAKE ANY INTEREST. THAT’S WHAT WERE LOOKING TO HAPPEN IN THE NEW YORK STATE. TO HIS POINT, IN REALITY WE MADE AN ERROR WE CONFUSE HEALTHCARE INSURANCE WITH HEALTHCARE. OBAMACARE IS NOT HEALTHCARE REFORM. IT’S HEALTHCARE INSURANCE REFORM. I’M LESS CONCERNED ABOUT INTERNS ARE NOW BUT MUCH MORE CONCERNED ABOUT HEALTHCARE SYSTEM WHICH IS A SYSTEM. IT’S A CARTEL SYSTEM WHERE WE GET HORRIBLE CARE UNLESS YOU PAY OUT OF YOUR POCKET. WE HAVE TO CHANGE THE ACTUAL HEALTH CARE SYSTEM AND MAKE IT TO WHERE IT’S FAR MORE TRANSPARENT AND WHERE IT’S MORE LIKE NONESSENTIAL MEDICAL CARE WHERE HE GETS DO WE HAVE HIGHER TECHNOLOGY AND HIGHER SERVICE AND LOWER PRICING BE WHAT YOU WANT THE INNOVATION BUT YOU DON’T WANT TO SQUASH THAT AND SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO PAY MORE FOR THINGS BUT WITH ACTUAL SOLUTION LIKE MATT TALKED ABOUT, PUBLICANS HAVE SHIED AWAY FROM CAMPAIGNING ON THEIR TAX CUTS AND MIDTERM AND IS VOTERS ARE NOT HOT ON THE TOPIC AS THEY WERE BEFORE. MORE AMERICANS SHOULD BE UPSET ABOUT THE FACT THAT OUR NATIONAL DEFICIT IN 2018 WILL HIT $779 BILLION IN PART BECAUSE REPUBLICANS ONLY CUT TAXES AND NOT SPENDING. HOW WOULD A LIBERTARIAN CUT ON THE SIZE OF GOVERNMENT?>>FI FOR TAX CUTS ALL THE TIME ON THE TRAIL AND IT’S A GOOD ISSUE. I WAS A BUSINESS REPORTER FOR A LOCAL STATION AND A LOT OF BUSINESSES REALLY DO WELL FROM THE TAX CUT SO I TALK MORE ABOUT CUTTING TAXES AND PEOPLE FEEL IT VISCERALLY. YOU ARE RIGHT, SPENDING SUCH AN ISSUE AND THE REPUBLICANS BECAUSE THEY DID SUCH A TERRIBLE JOB ON IT WITH TOTAL CONTROL OF WASHINGTON THEY HAVE OPENED UP THAT FLANK WHERE DEMOCRATS MAKE THIS ARGUMENT THAT WELL, TAX CUTS ARE WHY DEFICIT IS SO HUGE EVEN THOUGH WE KNOW THAT’S NOT THE CASE BUT IF WE LIVE WITHIN OUR MEANS AND CUT SPENDING WE COULD DO BOTH SO THE RUFFIANS HAVE BLOWN IT ON THAT. HAVE TO STEP IN AND BE THE RESPONSIBLE ONES WILL BE FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE TO BE ONE IT IS THOUGH PUBLICANS HAVE GIVEN UP AND SETS THE TONE AND INSTEAD OF ADMITTING TO FAILURE AND CHANGING THE ATTACK THE OTHER SIDE. KENNEDY: YOU DON’T WANT TO SOUND LIKE A LUTE ALTHOUGH I DON’T BECAUSE CRAZY TO WANT TO GET RID OF THESE HIGHER GOVERNMENT AGENCIES LIKE THE DEPARTMENT OF CONGRESS AND MOVE ON APARTMENT OF EDUCATION BUT HOW CAN YOU PRACTICALLY WORK PEOPLE TO MAKE CUTS?>>MODELS ARE OUT THERE. TAKE MARGARET THATCHER, THE GREAT PRIME MINISTER OF ENGLAND WHO PRIVATIZE SO MUCH OF ENGLAND’S PUBLIC SECTORS. SHE WENT TO A PUBLIC, PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP AND SLOWLY MOVED IT OUT OF THE PUBLIC SIDE INTO THE PRIVATE SECTOR. IT’S A MODEL WE COULD USE HERE IN THE STATES ACROSS THE BOARD AND IT GOES BACK TO THE COMPETITION. WHAT IS THE ROLE OF GOVERNMENT? IF IT’S TO PROTECT OUR RIGHTS, LIFE, LIBERTY AND PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS AND PROPERTY THEN IT GOES BEYOND THAT AT THAT POINT WE NEED TO THINK ABOUT WRITING IT IN AND REEDUCATING PEOPLE. KENNEDY: REIGN IT IN.>>TWO ISSUES. YOU MENTIONED HOW DO PEOPLE CARE AND THEY DON’T CARE BECAUSE OF LACK OF OPPORTUNITY. WHEN YOU HAVE A LACK OF OPPORTUNITY PEOPLE BEGAN TO GIVE UP AND LEARNED HELPLESSNESS. THEY STOP CARING. NEW YORK STATE ABOUT 70% OF US DON’T EVEN VOTE ANYMORE. WE’VE GIVEN UP. WE DON’T CARE ABOUT ANYTHING. I WANT TO FEEL BETTER BUT HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH TEXAS? YOU CAN’T JUST – YOU CAN’T JUST . KENNEDY: POLITICIANS JUST THROW STUFF AT PEOPLE AND THEY GIVE ME YOUR VOTE AND I’M SELLING OUT.>>YES, BUT WE CAN’T JUST CUT THINGS EITHER BECAUSE WHEN YOU CUT THINGS AND CUT THEM PEOPLE BECOME AFRAID. PEOPLE WHO ARE AFRAID MAKE BAD DECISIONS. KENNEDY: PETER WAS AT COULD USE A SCALPEL AND YOU CAN’T USE A CLEAVER. HEMORRHAGING AND UNCONTROLLABLE HEMORRHAGING ->>I TALKED OFTEN ABOUT THE IDEA OF USING NAMING RIGHTS AND IN THE STRUCTURE AND USING THE MTA WITH AT RIGHT LINES IN THE EVENING. KENNEDY: I LOVE FOR AN EFFORT TO BE NAMED AFTER ME. [LAUGHTER]>>EXACTLY. KENNEDY: WE ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME. PEOPLE SAY THIRD-PARTY CANDIDATES ARE SPOILERS IN THE ONLY GIVE THE ELECTION WONDERED.>>I THINK MY OPPONENTS ARE TRYING TO SPOIL IT FOR ME. THIS IS A QUINTESSENTIALLY AMERICAN IDEA TO TAKE ON A SEEMINGLY INSURMOUNTABLE FLOW AND BE DONE. THAT’S HOW THE COUNTRY LITERALLY WAS FORMED. I APPEAL TO IT FROM A PRAGMATIC STANDPOINT. INDEPENDENT AND CONGRESS HAVE A LOT OF POWER BOTH SIDES WOULD BE COURTING ME FOR THEIR VOTE AND WHEN PELOSI AND THE DEMOCRATS WENT TOO FAR I COULD CHECK THEM AND WHEN TRUMP AND THE REPUBLICANS GO TOO FAR, I COULD TAKE THEM. IT’S EMPOWERING OUR DISTRICT TO HAVE A MORE INFERENTIAL VOICE. KENNEDY: IS LIKE A FLOATER ON BIG BROTHER. SPOILER.>>THE SPOILER OF THE DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS. THEY ARE THELMA AND LOUISE AND HAVE DRIVEN OVER THE CLIFF. KENNEDY: ARE YOU BRAD PITT?>>I’M NOT BUT I LIKE THE TOP OF IT.>>IT IS NOT TRUE. THE BIGGEST GROUP OF PEOPLE AT THE VOTING BLOCK ARE THOSE WHO [INAUDIBLE] THE CONCEPT I’M TAKING BOTH FROM SOMEONE ELSE IS NOT ACCURATE. I’M GETTING PEOPLE WHO DO NOT CARE TO ACTUALLY VOTE. IN NEW YORK CITY 70% OF NEW YORKERS DON’T VOTE. THAT IS 7 MILLION NEW YORKERS. HIS 7 MILLION VOTED FOR MICKEY MOUSE, MYKONOS WOULD BE THE

Trump says US has reached a deal with Mexico on tariffs


THEY THINK IT’S NOT A TERRORISM ISSUE. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY A STAIR RIFLE ISSUE. THERE IS NO DOUBT PEOPLE THAT HATE US ARE LOOKING TO EXPLOIT THAT WEAKNESS. DAVID: WE HAVE BREAKING NEWS. WE THANK YOU VERY MUCH. WE HAVE SOME VERY GOOD NEWS THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS ANNOUNCED A DEAL. APPARENTLY A DEAL HAS BEEN REACHED WITH MEXICO. THE PRESIDENT JUST TWEETING OUT, I’M PLEADS INTO FORM YOU THAT THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA HAS REACHED A SIGNED AGREEMENT WITH MEXICO. IT IS SIGNED. THE TARIFFS SCHEDULED TO BE IMPLEMENTED BY THE U.S. MONDAY AGAINST MEXICO ARE HEREBY * INDEFINITELY SUSPEND. MEXICO HAS IN TURN AGREED TO TAKE STRONG MEASURES TO STEM THE TIDE OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION COMING FROM MEXICO INTO THE UNITED STATES. DETAILS OF THE AGREEMENT WILL BE RELEASED SHORTLY BY THE DEPARTMENT OF STATE. THANK YOU. THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT. THIS IS NEWS THAT UNDOUBTEDLY IS GOING TO AFFECT THE MARKET IN A VERY POSITIVE WAY. ALREADY TODAY WE HAD THE FIRST UP WEEK IN SEVERAL WEEKS ON THE MARKET. BUT THIS CLEARLY WILL MAKE

Senate report finds Clinton emails sent to cryptic Gmail


INVESTIGATION.>>Gregg: THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH ME. JOINING ME NOW IS THE FORMER ATTORNEY BRET TOLLMAN AND FLORIDA CONGRESSMAN MATT GAETZ. THERE IS ALREADY A CRIMINAL REFERRAL AGAINST NELLIE OHR AND PROBABLY SHOULD BE ONE AGAINST BRUCE OHR IN MY JUDGMENT. WE’LL WAIT TO SEE. I WANT TO TACKLE ANOTHER SUGGEST WITH YOU. CONGRESSMAN GAETZ WE LEARNED YOU CAN READ ABOUT IN “THE DAILY CALLER” THAT ACCORDING TO A SENATE REPORT, EVERY SINGLE HILLARY CLINTON E-MAIL WAS SENT SECRETLY TO A CRYPTIC GMAIL ADDRESS, INCLUDING CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS. SO YOU HAVE POTENTIALLY HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS OF DOCUMENTS THAT ARE SENSEIVETIVE, IF NOT CLASSIFY — SENSITIVE, IF NOT CLASSIFIED THAT CAN BE HACKED ON A GOOGLE SERVER. INTELLIGENT AGENT DISCOVERED IT. NOTIFIED PETER STROZK WHO WAS “DISINTERESTED AND DISMISSIVE.” CONGRESSMAN, HOW CAN THAT BE?>>THE REASON THIS IS THE CASE IS BECAUSE THEY ALL THOUGHT HILLARY CLINTON WAS GOING TO WIN. REMEMBER, GREGG, THE TRUMP RUSSIA ALLEGATIONS WEREN’T THE CRIME. THEY WERE THE COVER-UP. BECAUSE A LOT OF THE FOLKS AT THE F.B.I. AND THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE THOUGHT THEY WOULD BE RETALIATED AGAINST BY A FUTURE PRESIDENT HILLARY CLINTON IF THEY AGGRESSIVELY PURSUED THE FACTS AND APPLIED THE LAW WHEN IT RELATED TO HER UNLAWFUL CONDUCT WITH HER E-MAILS. THE REASON WE GET THIS DRIP BY DRIP IS YOU HAVE PEOPLE WHO WERE PAVING A YELLOW BRICK ROAD TO EXONERATION FOR HILLARY CLINTON THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN DOING THEIR JOB. THAT IS BECAUSE SUSAN G. THAT IS BECAUSE JUSAN G. THAT IS BECAUSE JAMAN G. THAT IS BECAUSE JAMES G. THAT IS BECAUSE JAMES C. THAT IS BECAUSE JAMES COMEY CURATED AN ENVIRONMENT WHERE THEY WERE NOT DOING INVESTIGATIONS AT THE F.B.I. THEY WERE TRYING TO SHAPE PUBLIC OPINION. WHEN YOU SEE THE BIAS THAT WAS SO EVIDENT OF THOSE INVESTIGATING HILLARY CLINTON THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THE OUTCOME SHE WASN’T FORCED TO ACCOUNT FOR THE BAD CONDUCT.>>Gregg: IF YOU HAVE CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS ON A GOOGLE SERVER, I MEAN EVERYBODY HAS GOT IT. INCLUDING THE RUSSIANS. WE NOW ALSO KNOW THAT THE CHINESE APPARENTLY HACKED HILLARY CLINTON’S CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS. ONCE AGAIN, THE F.B.I. IS NOTIFIED OF THIS. THEY DIDN’T CARE. ISN’T THAT JUST THE QUINTESSENTIAL MALFEASANCES OF THE F.B.I.?>>I KNOW A HUNDRED AGENTS AND EXECUTIVES OF THE F.B.I. THAT WOULD HAVE REACTED DIFFERENTLY THAN PETER STROZK DID. AND WOULD HAVE PLACED THIS AT THE TOP OF THEIR PRIORITY LIST. THE BOTTOM LINE ON CLASSIFIED INFORMATION, THINK ABOUT THIS, GREGG. TAKING ANY CLASSIFIED INFORMATION AND MISHANDLING IT TO SUMMARIZE WHAT THE LAWS STATE, MISHANDLING OF CLASSIFIED INFORMATION IS A CRIME IN THIS COUNTRY. PERHAPS THE ONLY ONE THAT IS A BIT RELIEVED TONIGHT IS HILLARY CLINTON BECAUSE THE STORY DOESN’T SEEM TO COME BACK TO FOCUS ON THE FACT THAT SHE HAS A PRIVATE SERVER. AND THESE E-MAILS ARE ON A PRIVATE SERVER. THOSE E-MAILS END UP GOING TO A MORE PUBLIC PLACE. BY HER INSTRUCTION, YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE IT’S BY HER INSTRUCTION. SHE HIRED THE COMPANY. THEY PUT IT ON THE PUBLIC PLACE FOR ANYONE TO POTENTIALLY SEE IT. LET’S FACE IT RIGHT NOW, AND BACK THEN, CHINA IS ABSOLUTELY ONE OF OUR TOP THREATS TO THIS COUNTRY’S NATIONAL SECURITY.>>Gregg: PAUL KOMBATA THE I.T. GUY THAT WORKED FOR HILLARY CLINTON. UNBELIEVABLY, CONGRESSMAN, HE GOT IMMUNITY FROM THE F.B.I. IN EXCHANGE FOR NOTHING, WHICH IN MY ALMOST 40 YEARS OF A LAWYER I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF THAT, NEVER SEEN THAT BEFORE. HE GETS IMMUNITY FROM PROSECUTION. ABLE NOW ANLE NOW ANDE NOW AND NNOW AND NOWW AND NOW HE IS REFUSING TO COOPERATE OR EVEN TALK TO THE D.O.J. INSPECTOR GENERAL.>>WELL, WHEN WE IN THE CONGRESS SAW THE IMMUNITY DEALS THAT WERE GIVEN NOT ONLY IN THIS INSTANCE BUT TO A VARIETY OF OTHER HILLARY CLINTON ASSOCIATES, YOU WONDER WHAT WAS BARGAINED FOR. IMMUNITY DEAL IS EXCHANGE FOR EVIDENCE THAT LEADS TO A HIGH PROFILE OR A HIGH PRIORITY TARGET THAT THEY HAVE IN A CASE. BUT YOU SAW THE BLANKET IMMUNITY DEALS GIVEN TO PEOPLE. IT DIDN’T GIVE THEM MORE OF AN INCENTIVE. IT CREATED LESS OF AN INCENTIVE. IT WAS DRAWN TO CRITIQUE BY THE INSPECTOR GENERAL WHEN HE ANALYZED THE BIAS THAT EXISTED HERE AND THE EXTENT TO WHICH THE BIAS COULD HAVE IMPACTED THE OUTCOME OF THE CASE.>>Gregg: YOU CAN HAVE THE LAST WORD BECAUSE I HAVE 30 SECONDS LEFT. THIS IS AS CROOKED AS THE DAY IS LONG, ISN’T IT?>>IT IS. IN 20 YEARS OF PRACTICING FEDERAL CRIMINAL LAW, I WAS NEVER ABLE TO GET BLANKET IMMUNITY. NOT FOR A COOPERATOR THAT I WANTED D.O.J. TO GIVE IMMUNITY. NOT WHEN I BECAME A DEFENSE ATTORNEY. NOT FOR ANY OF MY CLIENTS. THEY HAD LIMITED IMMUNITY AND THEY ALWAYS HAD TO GIVE SOMETHING UP THAT WAS SUBSTANTIAL. WHAT WE HAVE HERE IS FAILURE THAT IS STARTING TO PERCOLATE UP AT MULTIPLE LEVELS. IT’S JUST THE BEGINNING.>>Gregg: YEAH. THIS WAS JAMES COMEY’S F.B.I. THE SANCTIMONIOUS AND THE GLORIOUS FORMER F.B.I. DIRECTOR.

Sean Spicer on the impact of Trump’s economy in the 2020 election


STOCK MARKET SELLING OFF BIG TIME AS A RESULT OF THAT. THE FORMER WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY SEAN SPICER ON POLITICS BEHIND THIS. GOOD TO SEE YOU. IT BRINGS UP THE QUESTION OF TIMING. ALWAYS IN PRESIDENTIAL RE-ELECTION CYCLES, YOU WONDER HOW THE ECONOMY IS DOING AT A CERTAIN POINT. WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT TIME DO YOU THINK FOR US TO GAUGE HOW THE ECONOMY IS DOING AND HOW THAT MIGHT IMPACT THE PRESIDENT’S RE-ELECTION.>>I THINK NEXT JULY AND AUGUST ARE IMPORTANT. AS YOU HEAD INTO AN ELECTION, ONE OF THE THINGS I TRIED TO EXPLAIN TO PEOPLE OVER THE YEARS, THE ECONOMY IN TERMS OF WHY PEOPLE VOTE ISN’T JUST NUMBERS. YOU CAN THROW AS MANY STATISTIC AS YOU WANT. IF THEY DON’T FEEL THE ECONOMY IS GOING WELL. IF THEY DON’T FEEL LIKE THEY CAN SPEND EXTRA DOLLAR OR TWO, SAVE MONEY, GO ON THE VACATION, SPLURGE A LITTLE, DOESN’T MATTER WHAT THE STATISTICS SAY. AS YOU HEAD INTO THE ELECTION SEASON, THAT JULY-AUGUST TIME FRAME, SUMMER MONTHS ARE CRUCIAL. WHETHER OR NOT PEOPLE FEEL THE ECONOMY IS WORKING FOR THEM OR WORKING AGAINST THEM. BECAUSE THEY WILL WANT TO TAKE A VACATION, GET READY FOR THE SCHOOL SEASON BY BUYING STUFF FOR THEIR CHILDREN OR WHAT HAVE YOU. IF THEY DON’T FEEL IT ISN’T GOING WELL, IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT STATISTICS YOU THROW AT THEM, WHAT NUMBER THE STOCK MARKET IS AT. WE HAVE PLENTY OF TIME BEFORE IT STARTS TO SINK IN. BUT OVERALL, THERE IS A DIFFERENCE, RIGHT? SO YOU HAVE GOT THE UPS AND DOWNS OF THE MARKET. WE’RE SEEING CLEARLY A DOWN DAY TODAY. THERE HAVE BEEN PLENTY OF GOOD DAYS. THE QUESTION WHERE DOES IT FALL OUT. CONNELL: RIGHT.>>THE OTHER POINT, COLIN, YOU COVERED OVER AND OVER AGAIN, HOW MANY TIMES HAVE WE SEEN QUARTERLY GDP NUMBER, EMPLOYMENT NUMBER COME UP. RIGHT BEFORE IT A LOT OF PREDICTIONS ARE REALLY EXPECTING TO SEE SLOWING ECONOMY OR JOB, WAGES ARE GOING TO SLOW. WE DEFY THE ODDS OVER AND OVER AGAIN. CONNELL: TRUE.>>MAYBE THIS IS IT. I HAVE SEEN TOO MANY TIMES LUCY WITH THE FOOTBALL, EVERYBODY PREDICTS DOOM AND GLOOM. CONNELL: I KNOW.>>IF WE HAVE A COUPLE BAD DAYS THAT IS NOT THE END OF THE WORLD. THAT IS NOT GREAT, WE’RE NOT, FROM A POLITICAL STANDPOINT WE’RE NOT AT A SITUATION WHERE IT SPELLS ULTIMATE DOOM. YOU SAW BACK IN 1992 PRESIDENT BUSH STARTED TO TALK ABOUT THE ECONOMY. CLINTON SAID THE ECONOMY, STUPID. REALITY WAS, THE ECONOMY WAS IMPROVING. IT DID TOO WELL. CONNELL: TOO LATE, RIGHT? THAT IS WHY I ASKED YOU ABOUT TIMING. CAME LATE FOR PRESIDENT BUSH.>>THAT’S RIGHT. SO AS LONG AS PEOPLE ARE FEELING IT, THAT IS GOING TO BE IMPORTANT. BUT THERE IS ALSO ANOTHER THING. YOUR LAST GUEST, IT WAS FUNNY. I WAS FORMER ASSISTANT TRADE REP UNDER THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION. THIS IDEA WE’LL LET IT GO TO THE WTO, THAT’S WHY PRESIDENT TRUMP WON IS BECAUSE HE WASN’T GOING TO FOLLOW THE COOKIE CUTTER TRADITIONAL PATH THAT EVERY OTHER POLITICIAN SAID. LET’S BRING IT TO THE DISPUTE RESOLUTION BODY. CONNELL: SEAN, JUST ON TRADE IN PARTICULAR. THERE IS STILL CONSEQUENCES TO IT, RIGHT?>>YES. SURE. CONNELL: PRESIDENT COMES OUT, WHEN HE SAID FOREVER, WELL, CHINA IS PAYING TARIFFS. THEY’RE NOT REALLY PAYING TARIFFS. U.S. IMPORTERS PAY TARIFFS. MAYBE THEY DO PASS THOSE ALONG. IT’S A QUESTION WHETHER YOU’RE HONEST WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND SAY YOU KNOW WHAT? THIS COULD BE TOUGH FOR A WHILE. IT IS WORTH IT IN THE END. WE’RE NOT NECESSARILY GETTING THAT ARGUMENT ALL THE TIME OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE, ARE WE?>>NO. I THINK IT WOULD BE BETTER TO SAY FOR YEARS POLITICIANS TOLD YOU EITHER. A, THIS IS THE COST OF DOING BUSINESS, RIGHT? SO THAT CERTAIN JOBS AND INDUSTRIES ARE NOT GOING TO DO WELL. YOU NEED TO ACCEPT THAT AS REALITY. THIS IS AS MUCH AS WE CAN DO NOW THAT CHINA IS PART OF THE WTO WE NEED TO CALL ON THEM TO BE A RESPONSIBLE STAKEHOLDER WITH THE TERM AT THAT WAS USED ALL THE TIME. OR, YOU HAVE TRUMP THAT SAYS YOU KNOW WHAT? I DON’T REALLY CARE ANYMORE. YOU WILL NOT GET EXCUSES, SOMEBODY STANDS UP, USES ALL TOOLS IN THE TOOL BOX, 301, 302S. I WILL FIGHT FOR YOU. CONNELL: ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCES OF THAT?>>RIGHT. BUT I THINK — CONNELL: THEY COULD BE TOUGH?>>I THINK THAT IT WOULD BE SMART, BECAUSE IT WILL BE TOUGH. CONNELL: RIGHT YOU SEE IT NOW.>>CHINA IS A POWERHOUSE. THE THING IS, THAT THEY CAN WITHSTAND A LOT BECAUSE IN A DICTATORSHIP, THEY CAN, THEY DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THE DAY-TO-DAY POLLING THAT A DEMOCRACY MIGHT HAVE TO DEAL WITH IN TERMS OF POLITICIANS. CONNELL: YES.>>THAT BEING SAID, EVERYBODY THOSE THAT CHINA IS UNIQUELY DEPENDENT ON OUR ECONOMY AS AN EXPORT MARKET. THEY NEED THINGS LIKE SOYBEANS BIG TIME TO MAKE THEIR ECONOMY MOVE. SO WE DO HAVE CERTAIN MECHANISMS AND LEVERS WE CAN PULL. I AGREE WITH YOU, IF THE PRESIDENT WENT OUT THERE, GUYS FOR THE FIRST TIME IN EITHER PARTY’S HISTORY STAND UP TO CHINA THE WAY NO ONE HAS DONE BEFORE. CONNELL: GOT TO RUN, SEAN.>>I THINK THAT WOULD BE MUCH MORE STRONG. CONNELL: THAT WOULD ABETTOR ARGUMENT.
