10:00 am
don't these trump tariffs on china represent the biggest tax increase on u.s. consumers in modern time the. free trade guy and one of the things i 1st told donald trump when i met him when he asked me to work for him as a senior economist i said mr you know donald i'm a free trade guy he said look i believe in free trade he just but he said i want a level playing field we are in an epic battle with the chinese it's going to last decades don't the trump tariffs on china we can talk about decades long battle right now don't they represent the biggest tax increase on u.s. consumers in modern times well now we can for you say no but those are your goods oh wait a minute hold you said the idea of a 35 percent tariff on imported goods would represent the biggest tax increase on u.s. consumers in modern times suddenly start working for trump and that's not true i know their average american family has seen about a $1500.00 reduction in their taxes thanks to the to the worst economy that i've had wiped out by these tariffs not still haven't been to new york federal reserve is $800.00 or how about that you know who's been working on the last of those who you know new federal reserves are awaiting the tax policies and it is really
10:01 am
entirely for the federal budget your burden of those of those terrorists are borne by american consumers look if they have a lot of them if that's the case then why would china care the fact is anyway before bearing the cost of it just here are some of the i so enjoyed this conversation because yes steve oh you're all going with yourself i'm not the one who said i'm not the one who said every quote or tariff imposed on the u.s. hurts residents of the united states because all restrictions hurt the united states that tariffs have never would always end in an unhappy ending because you also let me explain all you with you'll see because it's an important point do i think that these these tariffs on china are hurting american consumers absolutely there was just a little trouble to this he did look he says the chinese and not any americans are paying the tariff that's a lie you know that's a lie you say that you are saying is the the book of the cost of the terrorists is being borne by the chinese through depreciating their currency they're providing increasing subsidies to their companies and when they do that the cost is borne by the chinese not. united states people have done the studies on the stephen reading
10:02 am
a print i love that you don't even know what i found what we're seeing even reading is that one of the country's top experts on international trade is a professor of economics at princeton. all of the u.s. tariffs to be imports passed absolutely for consumers that's what do you think it's a bit about but about would you are supported having free trade with nazi germany or the japanese search china is now he's in germany we are in china not i do i do think we are in a new cold war with china with china now as a german about china nazi germany in 2015 when you said why are we picking an economic weight i don't care about the human rights violations in china i care about about them bill i'm wondering what you care about there about a given 2015 you didn't care about them you said do we really want to pick an economic war with china where they're not in 2015 the only consolation i think this is that you said it in the national review article china is our number one import market do we really want to pick an economic war with then i then we should right now is you telling us that even more of 25 we have to he was wrong we have to know he was wrong and trouble trouble on the floor of 2019 tells us stephen moore 2050 let's go to our panel who are waiting patiently to come in here and join the
10:03 am
discussion rick wilson is a long time republican political strategist who has worked for george h.w. bush rudy giuliani among others since 2015 he's been a leading i think it's fair to say conservative critic of president trump author of the book everything trump touches dies now there's a title you and stephen have moved in similar right wing circles you've both worked on republican presidential campaigns who better represents conservative economic principles right now you or him well work i'm not an economist by trade or training steve it is but i will say this i still believe with the things that i think stephen believed before which is the primacy of free markets and now we have a president who wants to talk companies what to make where they can make it who engages in state capitalism sort of crony capitalist things and i think stephen you know prior stephen and now stephen there's a big dichotomy there and it's i don't think it's stephen alone i think there are a lot of republicans who display. that compromise you know so i'm curious like how
10:04 am
does it feel to like to flip so fast and so hard resolve that i've always said read write. with me respond that i've always said the single most important thing to reduce the national debt in the deficit and i think it's important priority for the united states is to grow the economy to put more people to work to make more american companies you know richer and more profitable rick we have done that in spades stephen you mentioned the economy is greater than ever before more bring in journalist reviews he's a constitutional lawyer member of the trump 20 twentieth's advisory board all through the book the legal basis for a moral constitution genet stephen says talks about this great economy anyone paying attention to the news recently and look at some of the numbers coming out there's a fear of a recession or at least a downturn coming maybe even ahead of of the next election how does a self-inflicted recession someone argue given the trade war how does that fit with the whole make america great again message going into 2020 this could be a problem for him is it not we want to talk about the constitution here not 100
10:05 am
percent of economic factors can be directly attributable to a single president and so with you look at the leadership style of barack obama it's a great point see where i was getting republicans during the obama program but i think that that's the but we did it and i certainly am and you know congress is also very much responsible and both sides and how worried are you about a recession but i think that we are point about self infliction is is also very very consistent with what we're seeing with the mainstream media who are so intact in a stacked against this particular president that they are the ones that are creating a false narrative so i listen to it even once this is like to give him an opportunity will give him over to actually it's so good at all if you're going to let me get going rather than trying to do it question is ition so much when you say the mainstream media is to blame for the post talking about a recession do you include the white house chief of staff and that mick mulvaney said there might be a short moderate recession next year is he part of the mainstream media there there might be but i think that you're trying to prove tax and isolate these comments and try to spin them into your narrative rather despondent you know just going to the white house to. tiffany and i we're going to move in but you say you're going to
10:06 am
stick it out on this do you come back as one problem tiffany cross is the co-founder managing editor of the national news outlet the d.c. liberal commentator you're shaking your head that you want to come in and respond so i it's really clear that the campaign is in full blown panic mode because he's fallen short on some of the promises that he made in 2016 to help perpetuate this false idea that people voted for him because of economic anxiety and you know given that this administration is kind of faulty relationship with the truth why is it anybody believe what you or any representative of this administration says when most of your economic solutions seem more based on messaging and attacking what jenna calls the mainstream media and calling facts are untrue. so yeah but that's happening to. people that have not reversed course on the debt and i think that that is a huge value album and i think should be related to that were so that it shouldn't
10:07 am
be reelected then no i'm saying well you shouldn't 20 others you know saying people really and i definitely should not hear reelected look i think you have to look the whole range of issues and what trump has done on the economy and i think it's been spectacular let's talk about immigration people have called trump's immigration policy dangerous crazy extreme nativist what do you say to them i say that we have to build a wall we have to secure our border i am totally in favor of a better way. to be the most pro moderation person in this room i've written books and books i've written i've written are you still i'm so i'm totally pro-immigration so do you think trump's policy is dangerous crazy extreme let me do you think this dangerous to myself the question do you think is dangerous crazy an extreme no i think those are your words look you thought i think trump's policy is a crazy policy with a very extreme nativist position it's a very dangerous thing to do and 2015 before you went to work now here's what i believe. i don't always agree with his positions on immigration but i do believe
10:08 am
that until we get the border secure and we get that wall bill once we do that we can increase our legal immigration and i am for immigrants coming into this country who want to contribute to is going to. this is an administration has backed legislation to haul of illegal immigration the ones to accept 0 refugees next year they support the bill in 2017 wants to end the visa lottery program and family migration crackdown on this analysis of legal or not true let me know how it got helped i helped write it's just not true to me just because i helped write the bill i know more about the bill than you do i have had i'm going great until there's a lot of not and family immigration what the ad bill does that allows spouses and children to come into this country a preserves the sanctity of our president every one of the presidency and a president go off and chain migration visa the whole point is all legal immigration policy not put will hold on here's what we're doing but we're basically saying yes an immediate family member you can bring in a spouse or
10:09 am
a child we want you know you can bring in but not your 2nd cousin not your on how about you and by the way i want you to give littles what about to bring in your in-laws if they're if they're you mean they're really i mean that you want to run the 1st lady brought whatever home got here is an option migration just so everyone knows what the policy is because you can decide whether you like the policy or not we want to have more high skilled talented young workers come into this country who will benefit the united states now some people oh that's a racist policy a racist policy that's the policy germany that's the policy of australia that's the policy of canada why shouldn't we take in pretty sure. you have to internationalise let's take the immigrants who were going to make a contribution to trump and his policies on immigration can be quote compassionate while preserving our sovereignty i think that's true. if you look at the camps at the border is it compassionate to detain 1000 people in a room designed for 40 people where women you know i can't comment because i can't
10:10 am
i don't know well like i don't know it's leading to not include because of lack of sanitary products children left and i was at the border do office of inspector general i've been in the border in texas and i can't speak for all the camps and so on but the ones that i've seen humane the people are working at the border they are they are doing everything they can to help those people and the idea that somehow somehow our border patrol people this is and also is of inspector general says 88 i don't males held in a cell with a maximum capacity of 41 but i don't support that that's what's happening is that compassionate not we should stop doing that. isn't the real reason that donald trump if we could agree. to get to the root of the reason but also you know the real reason we have to change our asylum policy because what's going to extend the refugees is what that is what steven miller 10 while i don't agree with steve miller and the by the way that's not the trump assertion ok the one who has a well founded fear of persecution should be able to come in as a rough minister from syria. here is that well he's closer to the syrian refugees
10:11 am
are compassionate but i am not a foreign policy expert on. this is the real reason donald trump is fighting this war on immigration is that he's a racist if when the president tells 4 women of color members of congress to quote go back to where they came from even though 4 of them all of them are u.s. citizens and 3 of them were born in the u.s. is that not racist i know donald trump i've spent a lot of time no that is not a race ok he's not a racist is that comment racist people can interpret it 1. we can you tell us about it is it a sense of why when you answer it because what's the problem you do have something wrong i don't think donald trump is racist i didn't ask those were some of the telling people to go back to where they came from is it racist to say yes or no question. i don't know i'm not going to and i won't do it so well one of the rallies this summer in north carolina when you mention representative in the crowd chanted send her back send her back i don't seem to be ok with it i don't like that stuff if you want it you said you loved the people from rallies but you stood with
10:12 am
them and trying to sound urban i would so and so i see why why because i think it's not it's not it's not what i think that's what you get a lot of them it's not real it's not bringing us together why don't you like is it not because it's racist here's one of the things about donald trump that certainly look i'm a big fan of donald trump's i made that clear but i will say this that what i wish he would do i wish he would bring us together more and be last divisive and i've told them that i think you know i think he's his performance has been spectacular with respect to getting jobs back and so on but he's got to be the president. not races that you're. probably divisive not racist is your preferred way he has 2 devices you should be to each would be the president of all the people he's got to work on that isn't the problem stephen that you're sitting here defending the president what many would argue are blatantly racist comments when you yourself had to withdraw your nomination for c. on the federal reserve earlier this year partly because of misfortune istic remarks you made you say you made 1020 years ago really and partly because the race is
10:13 am
coming you made that cause a lot of problems you about the obama's just wrong years ago that cause a lot problems for you the comments you made about the homeless i mean i had 6 full time investigative reporters looking into things i wrote 25 years ago this was any years ago i'm talking about you know letters that are what 25 years ago i'm not talking about those yet i'm saying it was in the past year and i'm saying that what's what is so i think anyone who looks at the evidence of what happened believes that i was completely unfairly treated i mean they on c. you don't myself or you don't regret saying that the 1st thing donald trump does as president is kick a black family out of public housing it was a joke it was a joke it was funny about that it was a cartoon that was in the in the b. you found it funny it was basically it was a joke it was you know you know you don't apologize a record i shouldn't say that but it was a joke. let's go to our panel tiffany the u.s. has always had problems of racism up to do that we can say it started with donald trump how much worse in your view do you think it's become on the donald trump or is it just a continuation where do you stand on the racism yeah it's just
10:14 am
a continuation i mean people like to say that it happened i saw a resurgence of this kind of rhetoric under barack obama as evidence as stephen morris comments i think instead of spitting in my face and trying to tell me it's raining you and you need to acknowledge that you are right with the racist president when you talk about immigration and you talk about you know that his policies are not racist i think perhaps the only immigrant that donald trump may like is former model birth there who has a fake college degree and given that she came in this country because she had to find visa i'm curious if you are exam i can answer what was her special talent that she got this special treatment that she got that einstein very very. good you asylum policy immigration policy when you see donald trump's justice department go to court to prevent migrant kids in detention center from getting soap and toothbrushes is that something you would have defended in court on behalf of the d.o.j. that wasn't the substance of that particular law so i don't know what i was and i said yes you know you asked
10:15 am
a different question which is trying to isolate that particular fact that's in your favor rather than looking at it i can assure you doing things to her she's going to do the favor it's basic human rights and that the basic right thank you for that right right. across the border by human trafficking and that is what the donald trump administration is making sure been waiting very patiently receive accusation of like cherrypicking and fax election my grandmother had a phrase when you have a turd in the punchbowl you don't have punch anymore you got water with that term so you can't say that if something they miss is a part of the overall lawsuit we just a lot over that we just ignore that that's part of the that's part of the system of the of the stephen. the president steven miller immigration policy they are designing this program in order to cause pain and suffering to children and families ok border. you have to look at the entire scope of the lawsuit and to make
10:16 am
sure that you understand and that particular point you know this and i have. already got a major national are that they are trying they are doing everything that they can for the children at the border but what president trump is trying to do is to make sure that they don't generate you major hurt people rick i want to ask you one question isn't a problem for you and for never trust republicans like yourself is that racism and bigotry long preceded donald trump look i glued it on the road a lot about this in my book you will and i told you hard just for the record you went to george h.w. bush who in 1981 a pretty racist out about willie horton didn't start any drama bush campaign didn't run mentality was the allies running the out allied with them but the long story short i wrote about this in a lot of my book and i realized something over time you know not every trump supporter is a is a nativist racist but all the nativist racists right now are trying to supporters everybody ok let's take this very we'll take a break then it's a very lively show as you can see when they come back in part 2 and talk about donald trump the mound donald trump the leader we're going to more from our panel and from our very patient audience here at the george washington university in

10:21 am
welcome back to head to head on al-jazeera english here in washington d.c. in front of an audience at the george washington university for the 1st time my guest tonight is the senior economic advisor to president donald trump he's an all star he's well known conservative commentator and he's an advisor to the trunk 2020 reelection campaign stephen moore thanks for weighing in on stephen a lot of people watching around the world. fascinated by donald trump wherever you go fascinated by this guy on a level i've never seen in any world leader in modern times you know the man personally you've met with him you've invited him i'm sure a lot of people in this hall and home must be wondering what is it like to advise someone a world leader who knows so little about anything. well look i mean 1st of all one of the things that really struck me about donald trump when i 1st met him 4 years ago you know that look i would say 95 percent of politicians are you know wonderful
10:22 am
people in public and jerks in private sometimes trump can be a jerk in public but he's actually a really nice guy in private i mean i like donald trump a lot of come to admire him i think people underestimate his intelligence i bet his i.q. you're going to laugh at this i think he's probably got about 100 i.q. the guy is amazing his breadth of knowledge about about you know the world affairs and i want to guy who says it like it is sometimes does he stick is put in his mouth yeah i think we did a comedy like it's not going to agree that people definitely voted for him because they didn't see him as a conventional politician but when you say breadth of knowledge and high i.q. this is a man who thinks wind turbines cause cancer thinks you can stop a hurricane with a nuclear weapon you need id to buy a box of cereal things england in great britain of the same thing well soviet union just rebranded as russia these are things he says every day i don't know i get not going to defend everything that you can't you just tell that i want is going to hire you in a breadth of knowledge i asked about you sell it to defendant because i think one of the flaws of donald trump is the thing is waking. actually would be better to
10:23 am
stop talking so much on letters record speak for itself why would you want to stop talking if you've got such a high i.q. and such a breath because you don't you know idea i do worry that there is a little bit of trouble for team that people are tired about here it's where he's good is when he focuses on an issue and he comes up with solutions that are work you know you talked about that's why people are impressed when you talk about fatigue is the problem that he seems kind of fatigued people talk about his mental i don't see that his cognitive decline this is a president and i think the president this is a president who refers to himself as the chosen one as a stable genius he rants and raves on twitter in the middle of the night he recently retreated a supporter who called him the king of israel and the 2nd coming of the lord if you were sitting on a plane stephen and the last thing you heard a pilot say was i'm the 2nd coming of god you would get off the plane with you mr president of the united states saying that you know what a lot of times he's saying these things to tweak people like you and get underneath your skin but by the way i think it's
10:24 am
a rather wretch the liberals are now saying you know trump doesn't have the mental acuity to be president and i'm listening to joe biden every day i mean come on is it about by it's funny unbelievably money and i don't agree with you someone should check out joe biden it's not just liberals it's not just liberals you keeping liberals former white house starts of communications anthony scaramucci republican senator susan collins and bob corker former trump advisor omarosa newman they've all come out and said this guy quote is an obvious mental decline he's unstable everyone knows it. the white house continues to deceive the nations as one former aide on how mentally declined he is he's a liberal to the people who worked with him these are republicans there are a lot of republican number trumpeters out there i don't have a trump and they worked for donald trump called me i never come i mean i worked in the white house when i worked for them too and i'm here to tell you that guy is i've never seen by the way anybody in my whole life he's a freak of nature you were 20 i mean we can agree he's a freak of nature now he works 20 hours a day when he's playing golf and watching t.v. all come out i mean this is
10:25 am
a guy who i mean come on is it not fact that he plays like your garden that he plays golf i don't have a problem you just said he works 20 hours a day i'm just going on what you're saying what i'm saying is this guy around the clock is paying attention to what's going on or playing golf states ok so we play some rounds of golf lot of saying is he had his own gratification never seen before but that's what people are questioning the work ethic given he's always playing golf or watching t.v. in your book you write that everyone around him seem to love donald trump that trump treats his people well and yet he has the highest turnover of staff of any modern president i and in fact i'll let you also why in fact when they resign or when he fires them he then attacks the yeah i don't like that he's a sloppy steve benen dumb as a rock rex tillerson iraqi owner as he called her a dog highly unstable not job scaramucci ironic clueless boneheaded drone power these are the people trump treats his people well you wrote how does that work look i don't like that he does that but i do like how does that fit with. your opinion as it has every description the trump treated people don't seem to treat as people i'm saying it's the people who are around him love him you know the liars them and
10:26 am
then love the many so you know what prompt us he's a c.e.o. if people. use them and that's what a good c.e.o. should do year i'm president i'm pretty sure it is somebody who is able and don't want to go and get rid of 3 and call them a nickname or a dog i'll look that's a different issue how me saying it's an issue it's what the issue is that i agree with you he shouldn't call these people names but i am only thinking that if they're not provided you know what i'm asking what he does i don't know i mean i guess i don't know what i say visit to his mental decline. is it to do with racism no is it time to start why did he do this why does he call a woman a dog why does he call his own former advisor dumb as a rock his former secular state who praised rex tillerson why do you do that a mosque you can you know and we don't i wish he wouldn't do it that's why i'm asking why does he i don't know i don't know why he does it and i wish he would do and i think it gets him into trouble i think if donald trump didn't do those kinds of things you're talking about he did not have a 40 percent approval rating you know 70 percent i'm honestly why he doesn't you can't tell me even though you tell me he's the smartest guy i mean i don't like
10:27 am
a lot of the personality i don't know this but which part of what i'm saying is what americans care about is a press performance is results not what he says the how he acts ok and isn't it the case stephen moore that if you did if you did have a falling out would trump if you did kind of turn on trump or criticize him publicly in any strong way he'd come off to you too when he when i was going so you would be so i steve. that's why i'm not going to cross i'm like i mean i mean i mean that's let's bring in our policy wilson is here wilson long time republican political strategist worked for george h.w. bush rudy giuliani never trump i think it's fair to say rick a lot of people on in your camp would say the people don't cross him because they're afraid of double they are there's no question about this i've talked to members of congress members of the senate who despise this man who think he is the worst president they've ever dealt with in terms of being consistent honest direct and having having any sort of connection with with with ethical boundaries these
10:28 am
people are terrified of him this is not how a government would normally be would seem to work but the fact is trump has a gigantic threat it's that hammer of his social media that he's willing to use against his own allies almost as much as he is against any and hone it rick you know this you're a pollster donald trump's approval rating among republicans is what $85.00 or 90 percent it's trump's party now and you know what if if if republicans come out against him they're going to lose their primaries because he's so popular with as well the guy who got the big. stephen it is and it is no party there is not a party right now dedicated to limited government and its just responsibility to the economic growth there is not according to the limited government fiscal responsibility and the old tenets of conservatism it is now donald trump's party it is a man and his mob it is not a political party with consistent under god let me bring in let me bring in journalist rivers is a constitutional lawyer member of the trump 2020 advisory board rick says your policy is no just trump on the mob do in response yes of course because you know
10:29 am
what i think what i think stephen is saying as far as this president donald trump being the most conservative we can measure him not by our own personal opinions but i think full articles to accuracy to the u.s. constitution and that is really the metric of any president and if you look at not only the economy the lower unemployment rate but also the $150.00 judicial appointments in 2 thing including 2 supreme court justices that are faithful originalists this is the promise that donald trump has for america and so like him as a person or not i'm not looking for someone that i want to go have a beer with i am looking for a leader and i'm one who will stay faithfully within the margins of the u.s. constitution the whole idea of make america great again is actually working ok tiffany cross is the co-founder managing editor of the b.b.c. national news outlet liberal commentator tiffanie isn't the problem for a lot of liberals and for people to i don't have a trump as a you can pile up old examples of things he does that seem unhinged. and yet stephen points out the vast majority of some of his supporters millions of your
10:30 am
fellow americans still love the dog it beggars belief but you see because you're trying to have a logical conversation with the illogical she just said that he was faithful to the constitution except for birthright citizenship except for the a monument clause this is ridiculous that's why we kind of i mean everybody very much part of the problem and listen i said look it's really not like you know trying to get applause lines i mean listen my people who built this country ok. i love this country and it just says something to me that after all that america has done so my ancestors i can stand here today and be a bigger patriot than you or you because this president is an existential threat to america he has lost it preys on foreign adversaries like vladimir putin he waxes poetic about love letters he writes with kim jong un and he invited the taliban to camp david a week before 911 and what world do we exist that we don't feel like we're living
10:31 am
on a saturday night live sketch 24 hours a day that reasonable seemingly reasonable people become i'm reasonable but unfortunately you're trying to say that we are not patriots simply because we disagree with you and that is absolutely not an ok statement to make we haven't been out of logical thinking that we could have a logical i dream and not to any disagreement fictional avocadoes known as they are such as how i'm going to take any additional i'm going to respond probably no you're not going to agree with your that i'm going to thing within the margin of the constitution simply because you claim that somebody does not constitute little does not mean that it is and stephen was going to ask you this question you're listening to this conversation and at what stage do you go this is just not normal saying tweeting a very stable genius thanks look if trump's policies were not working then i'd be with you all i'd say you don't get rid of the guy but guess what they are worth it's funny because you did say get to go before you went to work for the guy let's go to our audience to be very waiting very patiently at the g. w.
