campaign and russia. >> john, this goes to the whole double standard. >> you're saying two things. you're saying coordination did happen, but the democrats did it, too, which is absolutely contradictory in and of itself, in and of itself. >> no, it's not. not at all. i'm saying, again, the broader picture here, and this is what the president was speaking to yesterday, is what many in the media and many on the left is keep this permanent cloud -- when i was saying a moment ago, i'm glad hilary brought up this point, they want to keep a permanent cloud over president trump trying to delegitimize his big victory this last november. they want to keep this cloud over his administration as he's trying to push forward with his objectives. look at the fact that we're talking about this right now and not talking about his trip to france. >> i'm glad you said that because i actually think -- >> jason, you made your point. >> i'm glad you said that, because i actually think it is so important that president trump and his allies are trying
to take health care aware from 23 million people, that the environmental protection agency and our clean water and our air is all threatened, and all we're doing is cleaning up the mess from trump and his allies because they consistently mislead the american people about their russia contacts. i don't want to talk about it either. >> we'll be talking about health care throughout the program. >> the democrats are off trying to file impeachment bills when you don't have a health care plan, don't have a tax plan. all you can do is obstruct. >> jason, we have to go. we will be talking about health care, but we actually were basing this segment on what president trump chose to talk about yesterday, which was hillary clinton. so just for the record. thank you very much. thanks to our international viewers. for you cnn "newsroom" is next. for our u.s. viewers, "new day" continues right now. >> i was elected to represent the citizens of pittsburgh, not paris.
>> we all share the same responsibility. >> president trump is leaving behind a white house said to be in a state of paralysis. >> one of the things that's frustrating is the drip, drip, drip of information. >> our goal is to be as transparent as humanly possible. >> any threat or effort to interfere with our election is the kind of thing the fbi would want to know. >> there never was in collusion. it's bogus. >> the moment has arrived for all these people associated to finally, at great long last, start telling the truth. >> this is "new day" with chris cuomo and alisyn camerota. >> good morning everyone. welcome to your "new day." chris is off. john berman joins me. >> quite a morning so far. >> if our first hour is any indication, the next two should be interesting. up first, president trump is in paris arriving early this morning as the russia controversy involving his son continues to grip washington. in just hours, president trump will hold a press conference where he is expected to face questions about the e-mails and the meeting his son had with a
russian lawyer. the president coming to the defense of don junior insisting many people would have taken that meeting with the russian lawyer to get dirt on a political opponent. >> all these russia revelations over shadows what is an important day on capitol hill. republicans will unveil the latest health care bill. what is different this time around? can it win the votes it needs? let's begin with cnn's sara murray live in paris. good morning, sara. >> reporter: good morning, john. president trump is slated to take questions from the press alongside french president emmanuel macron, this as there's yet another political firestorm brewing back in washington. this centered on donald trump, junior and his meeting with the russian lawyer. the first opportunity for president trump to address the latest russia revelation rocking the white house. president trump touching down in paris, hoping to forge stronger ties with france's new
president. the trip overshadowed by the president's son's admission in e-mails he met last year with a russian lawyer believed to have dirt on hillary clinton from the kremlin. ahead of the trip, the president defending donald trump junior in a reuters interview, saying most of the phony politicians who are democrats that act holier than thou. if the same thing happened to them, they would have taken that meeting in a heartbeat. president trump insisting there was zero coordination between his campaign and russia, referring to collusion accusations as a hoax made up by democrats and the greatest con job in history, a characterization rejected by trump's fbi director nominee at his confirmation hearing on wednesday. >> as the future fbi director, do you consider this endeavor a witch hunt? >> i do not consider director mueller to be on a witch hunt. >> reporter: the president zben saying he only learned about his son's meeting with the russian lawyer in the past few days, although exclusive video obtained by cnn from the 2013
miss usa pageant shows the president schmoozing with the russian family at the center of the controversy. >> most powerful people in all of russia, the richest men in russia. >> reporter: president trump also asked if he believes vladimir putin's denial on election interference. the president dodging instead of siding with his intelligence chiefs, saying something happened, and we have to find out what it is. >> when i keep hearing that he would rather have trump, i think probably not. >> reporter: the president then questioning the intelligence community and their conclusion that russia meddled in the election to harm hillary clinton. >> if hillary had won, our military would be disseminated. our energy would be much more expensive. that's what putin doesn't like about me. >> congratulations. great job. >> reporter: with the white house under fire, the president is hoping to change the narrative with his visit to france. >> we want to reassure everybody as we did at the g20, secretary
mattis and the vice president has done in recent visits, that we stand by our allies, stand by article five. >> reporter: presidents trump and emmanuel macron looking to put their differences aside after trump abruptly pulled the u.s. out of the paris climate accord. >> trump and macron have had bizarre run-ins before. who can forget that awkward handshake at the g7. they'll be taking questions from the press, making statements and also joined by their spouses this evening for a dinner at the eiffel tower. >> that handshake from the g20 is still going on. >> macron hasn't let go. >> g7, g20. i don't do math. joining us cnn political commentator errol louis, congressional reporter for "the washington post," karoun demir jan and a.b. stoddard. great to see all of you. errol, do we know how this press
conference will work? can anybody ask questions? will it be tightly controlled? will american journalists be allowed to ask? >> we've seen lots of different variations. the tradition has been, and i assume they'll sort of adhere to form is both leaders will take questions from foreign and their domestic press. what we don't know is who is going to be in the room and how much they want to sort of press french issues in the way that any of us would do. so, for example, president trump has been critical of immigration policy in france. there's been talk about terrori terrorism and whether or not it is linked to immigration policies. >> he's talked terrorists dangerous. that it's a dangerous place to go. >> if you were a parisian journalist, you would probably ask about that. why are you insulting paris? have you consulted with armed forces? what we'll get i think is going to be a pretty aggressive set of
questioning about his past comments which here in the united states, it just kind of comes and goes. he insults germany, insults france. he kind of moves on. they're going to probably try to hold him accountable. >> you'll get questioning about his son's e-mail exchange. his answers have been incomplete and in some ways contradictory so far. listen to what he told reuters yesterday about that meeting. he goes, there was zero coordination. it's the dumbest thing i've ever heard. this was a hoax. this was made up by the democrats. this was the greatest con job in history where a party sits down the day after they get their ass kick and goes, huh, what's our excuse? he continues to say this was a hoax. in the meeting between don junior and the lawyer, the e-mail exchange where he was promised information from the russian government, not a hoax. he needs to be pressed on this. >> obviously he will be. i expect him to be as defiant as he always is. facts don't really matter. they don't get in the way of
trump's message. he obviously rails against the media, says they're not credible and likes to blame everything on the democrats now that he's out of the campaign, and in office he tends to blame things, as i said, on the democrats or the media. i think you'll see a lot of discussion similar to what he's previewed in these interviews that putin, if he's asked specifically about his meeting last week or russian meddling and what he's going to do now, now that he has seen these e-mails, seen that the russian government was interested in helping his campaign and his son was willing to meet with people who were expressing that, he's going to be asked that question and i think he'll push back like he always has. i don't think he'll give an inch. i don't expect him to be any different. i think he's shown his cards. everything is usually hillary's fault or the media. he's pretty good at sticking with that spin. >> karoun, we do have another little excerpt from the reuters interview where he was asked
just what his position is on russian meddling. president trump said -- and putin. somebody did say, if he
did do it, you wouldn't have found out about it, which is a very interesting point. look, something happened and we have to find out what it is, because we can't allow a thing like that to happen to our election process. as errol has pointed out, good news, president trump, there's an investigation going on, many. so maybe we will find out exactly what's going on. do you think that statement goes further than he has in the past? >> no, it doesn't. look, trump has said, he's acknowledged maybe something happened. maybe it was russia, maybe china, maybe somebody else. he's never fully pinpointed russia, never fully backed what happened, never fully backed his own intelligence community. this perspective is a last-year perspective. the rest of the country pretty much has moved on to the next stage of the investigations
which is to say there seems to be some russian connection. we have the entire intelligence community, that's something back there, especially when you're the president of that administration. and then you have these probes, mueller's probe and the other probes starting to look at his surrogates closely, they've moved past this point and he has not caught up yet. it doesn't seem like he's going to catch up. he finds new ways of describing this. this is a unique turn of phrase, i suppose, that doesn't actually advance where he's standing to say actually i'm going to back the intelligence community and say, yeah, it was russia, it was likely russia directed by putin. we've got to figure out how to deal with that so that specifically does not happen again. he's not there. >> errol louis, i think it's going to be fascinating to see where he operates. critics on the left say the gold posts have moved here. they've been consistently moving the gold post, at first saying the russia thing is a hoax, then saying there's no collusion.
now saying, if there was collusion, maybe it wasn't totally illegal. maybe if don junior had this meeting it's not so bad because other people would have had this meeting. you know what? the democrats are doing it, too. it really shows how their argument has shifted. >> that's right. there was an intermediate spin saying, well, just because somebody is russian doesn't mean they're connected to the putin regime. putin himself suggested maybe there were patriots out there who were doing this on their own, rogue hackers and so forth. we know that's not true because the e-mail says it's coming from the russian government. we can either keep moving all the goal posts or we can have a national conversation and firmly held standards about what is or isn't proper, acceptable -- >> in the papers this morning there's a negotiation from the white house that the president was walking around the white house thinking this was getting better over the course of the day, that maybe the arguments that they're making they think are beginning to work. >> well, i think they're working
with their base. you've got a political tract and a legal tract. as far as the legal side of it goes, we'll find that out as we get sort of hard investigatory advances coming from the special counsel and the intelligence committees. on the other hand, politically, if you're just talking to your base, yes, donald trump can convince his base this is all the fault of the democrats, all the fault of the media. it didn't happen, sort of happened, it's all politics. shifting the goal posts and redefining what is ab septemberable politics. his base may swallow that. the polling suggests to a certain extent they do. what everybody else wants to do though, where the rest of us want to go with what is acceptable to have a foreign adversary interfering in our elections, that's going to be a different set of politics, and i think we'll find it out no later than the midterms. but the conversation goes on right now. >> a.b., give us the big picture in washington.
we do chase these threads. they come out in terms of russia meddling and any sort of possible collusion. is there a sense on capitol hill and in washington that the don junior e-mails do put this in a different category? >> oh, absolutely. there is absolute discussion going on privately, as it has all along, about whether or not this administration is now in real peril, whether there was a real substantive threat behind the russia investigation and the don junior e-mail. he received a notice from his friend that the russian government was trying to help his dad, and he did not say, what do you mean? the e-mail sounds like he was unsurprised and, of course, willing and eager to meet with them. this is very concerning to senators and congressmen defending the president, taking these questions day in and day out. but what i'll add to what errol was saying is this actually becomes a bigger policy --
there's more policy pressure on donald trump as a result of these last five days. republicans in congress are more determined than ever. they're not going to say to a reporter, yeah, the trump administration, they stink to high heaven and they're probably in real trouble. what they're going to say is, we're going to sanction russia for meddling. the bill that passed the senate was 97-2. house speaker ryan as of yesterday wants to bring up the same bill on the house side, not include any of the waivers that the white house is seeking, and really put this on the president's desk and dare him to veto it. that's actually a big policy issue and a challenge to president trump. in addition, as a means to retaliate against the russians in december, outgoing president obama evacuated those two russian compounds in new york and maryland and sent a bunch of russian officials home. the administration currently is considering giving those compounds back to the russians and inviting them back here. there's bipartisan pressure for
him to not do it, from the senators and members in congress. that's a challenge for this administration. >> panel, thank you very much for all of the information and insights. great to talk to you. senate republicans will unveil the latest version of their health care bill today. so what has changed? will this be enough to win over votes to pass it? cnn's suzanne malveaux is keeping track of all this live on capitol hill. what's the latest suzanne? >> reporter: good morning, alisyn. we're just four hours away from receiving the latest version of that repeal and replace obamacare bill. already two republicans are not happy with it. conservative senator rand paul says that this is even worse than the previous bill. it does not go far enough in repealing obamacare because of taxes, subsidies and regulations. senator suzanne collins, a moderate from maine, says it goes too far because of the cuts to medicaid. at the same time we have vice president mike pence making an on core appearance on the hill.
he's been wining and dining senators, taking them horseback riding, he's been central in pushing forward this version of the health care bill. at the same time the president playing a low-key role if you will in this version of negotiations, but at the same time warning senators what this will cost? >>
i am sitting in the oval office with a pen in hand waiting for our senators to give it to me. >> what will happen if they don't? >> i don't even want to talk about it because i think it would be very bad -- i will be very angry about it. a lot of people will be very upset. >> reporter: just a few things we know will be in the revised bill, some additions here, $45 billion for opioid addiction treatment, taxes on wealthy americans will remain, not be repealed as in the previous bill, more money for stabilization funds and finally no major changes to medicaid, which means some of those severe cuts will remain in place.
john? >> suzanne malveaux on capitol hill. a lot going on there today. in the meantime how are democratic lawmakers reacting to president trump saying the russia story is a hoax, still, even after the don junior e-mails, a hoax created by democrats. we'll ask a key democrat next. showing off my arms? that's cool. being comfortable without a shirt? that's cool. getting the body you want without surgery, needles, or downtime? that's coolsculpting. coolsculpting is the only fda-cleared non-invasive treatment that targets and freezes away stubborn fat cells. visit coolsculpting.com today and register for a chance to win a free treatment. binders, done. super-cool notebooks, done. that's mom taking care of business. but who takes care of mom? office depot/office max. this week, get this ream of paper for just one cent after rewards. ♪ taking care of business.
president trump defending his son amid growing backlash over the e-mails with the russian lawyer. president trump told reuters that many people would have held the same meeting if they had the opportunity. joining me now to discuss, democratic congressman ted deutsche, ranking member of the house ethics committee. let me read you the direct quote. president trump said i think many people would have held that meeting. you have to understand when that took place, this was before russia fever. there was no fever back then. that was at the beginning of the campaign more or less. that first line, i think many people would have held that meeting. if someone had come to you during one of your campaigns and said i have information from the russian government about your opponent that will help you, would you have taken that
meeting? >> of course not. i tell you what i would not have done. i would not have responded immediately agreeing to the meeting and reaching out to the senior most members of my campaign to go have that meeting. here is what the e-mails that we saw this week have now confirmed. they've confirmed the intel community's conclusion that the highest levels of the trump campaign was willing to have a meeting with russian officials who told them that they had information that would help elect donald trump, and their response was, one, we'll take the meeting, and two, boy, that's great. the other thing i point out, it was just weeks after that then candidate trump announced that there is nothing he would rather do than be friends with russia. it's outrageous to suggest there's anything at all acceptable about this meeting, and it raises a thousand more questions about the way that these interactions with russia transpired. >> the meeting wasn't with a
russian official, although in the e-mail exchange, he believed it to be a russian official, just to clear that up. as for the timing, there's big timelines out there worth looking at. we don't know if the meeting was connected to anything that happened later on. i want to move on from this. you've been in politics for a long time. do you think it's true many people would have taken this meeting? >> of course not. what's so concerning is the response -- if i got an e-mail like that. i dare say if any of my colleagues received an e-mail like that, there would be shock, there would be concern. there would certainly not be an immediate response that says i love it, especially later in the summer. it suggests almost this wasn't the first time he had heard about it. no, i wouldn't react that way. as we saw yesterday at the hearing, i think the fbi director designate was right.
this is the kind of information you let the fbi investigation. >> when pushed by senator lindsey graham, he said this is the kind of information you give to the fbi. he didn't say flat out you shouldn't take the meeting when first asked. the question becomes what are you going to do about this? your colleague, brad shermant, n has filed articles of impeachment. do you think that's a good idea? >> i think point i think we need to take a step back and look at where we are. the reaction from the president and others in the administration is to treat every one of these revelations as if it's the first one, as if it's never happened before. >> but the question is, sir, as we sid here today, the beginning of july, do you think it's the right time to file that? >> no. what i do think we ought to do, and i've been very clear about this, as a member of the judiciary committee, we ought to start holding hearings in the judiciary committee where we bring in all the relevant parties to have a discussion
about and have hearings about these revelations to start talking about, for example, what constitutes obstruction of justice, where firing of the fbi director because of an investigation like this might constitute obstruction of justice. >> do you think your colleague brad sherman should put the brakes on this, that it's not helping your argument by filing these articles? >> there are multiple -- let's remember, john, how many investigations are on going now. there is the special counsel of the fbi, multiple congressional investigations. and with every new revelation like this, there is more and more information that will lead to a conclusion, wherever that conclusion -- wherever the facts take us. so we'll figure out what needs to happen. at this point, we need to keep gathering the information. at the same time we do that, here is what congress can do, john, congress can send and the speaker can take action this week to send the russia sanctions bill that the senate
passed and see if the president will sign it. that's a policy matter that will put the president to the test of whether or not he's willing, as he says, to be tough with russia or whether he's really the president that we saw during the campaign as the candidate who kept talking about wanting to be friends with russia. this is a serious matter. russia interfered with our election, congress is trying to toughen sanctions. that's what the american people want and expect. that's what the speaker ought to allow us to vote on so the president has a chance to sign it. >> again, the senate passed it with only two no votes. it hasn't come up for a vote in the house yet. perhaps there will be a vote soon on that. you say there's a russian effort to influence the election. something we're hearing from the white house, as well as there was a ukrainian effort to influence the election. chris wray said he was unwilling to ruled out investigating whether there was any connection between democratic operatives and the ukraine. do you have any concerns on that
front? >> here is what i would just point out. the willingness, the desire to talk about a political article at a time when they're in the midst of this focus of a russian effort to interfere with our election, is trying to divert attention. i understand the efforts to do it. here is why they're doing it. the fact is, we were told over and over by the president, the vice president, reince priebus, kellyanne conway, over and over, donald trump jr., that there were no contacts with the russians. they've been walked back over and over. >> they were wrong about that. there's no question that talking about ukraine diverts the focus from that, but in a vacuum. again, it doesn't mean what happened between ukrainian -- people close to the ukrainian embassy and this democratic operative did happen.
do you have any concerns there? >> i haven't heard anything further other than what was in that article. what i have heard a lot about is, even just yesterday, again, we saw the president -- we heard about the president's meeting with putin where the president sat down and, instead of looking putin in the eye and saying, look, the american intelligence community has told me that you've interfered with our election and america will not stand for it. instead, he looked at putin and asked him, as the president told reuters yesterday, asked him once, did you do it? he asked him again, did you do it? and when putin denied it, he decided it was appropriate to enter into a cyber security compact with russia. it's outrageous. it's a sign of weakness. that's why it's so important for us to ratchet up the sanctions on russia, and the president is the person that's going to need to sign that to make that happen. >> paul ryan is the person that needs to get that to the floor. >> it should happen this week. >> congressman ted deutsche,
thanks for being with us. appreciate your time. >> john, we'll get the other side because president trump said he and russian president vladimir putin get along well. is that a good thing? what does that mean to a member of the house intel committee? we'll ask him next. introducing the easiest way to get gillette blades text "blades" to gillette on demand text to reorder blades with gillette on demand... ...and get $3 off your first order
if hillary had won, our military would be disseminated. our energy would be much more expensive. that's what putin doesn't like about me. that's why i say why would he want me? from day one i wanted a strong military. he doesn't want to see that. from day one, i want fracking and everything else to get energy prices low and create tremendous energy. he doesn't want that. he would like hillary where she wants to have windmills. >> that's president trump continuing to counter his own intelligence chiefs, offering a new theory that russian president vladimir putin actually wanted hillary clinton to win the election. let's bring in republican congressman chris stewart who sits on the house intelligence committee which is investigating russia's election interference. good morning, congressman. >> good morning.
>> what do you think when you hear the president give answers like that? >> i actually agree with him. >> why do you think russia wanted hillary to win? >> no. what i'm saying is there's lots of reasons why russia would have -- they have been dominated the previous administration in crimea, they did it in ukraine, in syria. the energy policy point is such an important point. the greatest sanction we could impose on russia is cheap energy prices. as you know, it's their most powerful and most successful export. it's what they use to fund their government. i think those are fair points, that there's lots of reasons why a hillary presidency would have been more favorable to the russians than a trump presidency. >> that's not what our intel chiefs concluded. >> yea. >> they concluded he wanted president trump. >> i know you're going to disagree with me. i have read the raw
intelligence, spent hours and hours at the cia making clear of that. i disagree with that analysis. they say there's 17, it was unanimous. that's simply not true. >> let me ask you about that. first there were 17 intel agencies. then they said it was the top four, were any of the intel agencies saying something different, any saying they think russia did not interfere in the election? >> no, there was varying degrees of confidence. some said we don't share the conclusion that this is a high degree of confidence. let's also recognize this. the intel community is not perfe perfect. they said there were weapons of mass destruction in iraq. that turned out not to be true. they missed the nuclear programs in india and north korea. those are meaningful events.
the intel community is not perfect. i said this before, i just disagree with this. i think there was real credible reasons why they would look at that and say no, we don't think mr. trump is going to be better for us than secretary clinton. >> a couple things. obviously nobody is perfect. the intel community is not perfect. what they would say is since the debacle about weapons of mass destruction, they've fixed their issues that caused that problem, that they don't silo their information in the way they used to, they do share more information that they learned from that horrible experience. that's number one. number two, you do not agree with them? you don't agree that russia interfered in the election. >> no, no. i said last fall when i came home from moscow, i said they're going to meddle in our elections, no question about it. there's no question they did. that's very, very clear. anyone who disagrees with that
has been living on the moon. the thing i disagree with is there's this clarity that they ple preferred one candidate over the other. >> you said anybody who disagrees is living on the moon. do you think president trump has always agreed that russia 100% agreed in the election? >> i honestly don't know. i honestly don't know whether he agrees with that or not. it doesn't matter. it's true. i think the more important question is did they prefer one candidate over another? it is an important question. think about this. there's a lot of americans who think our president was elected because of the interference of a foreign government, not only a foreign government, but a foreign adversary. i think that's something we absolutely have to know. again, i've looked at the evidence, and my conclusion is quite different. by the way, we're working on a report from the intel committee
that will bring clarity to this. i look forward to that coming out. once again, the intelligence community is not perfect. they were not unanimous. >> understood. we look forward to their conclusions as well. what about the evidence from don junior's e-mails, where it is in black and white that the russian government would prefer his father win and, in fact, they said they were supporting his fact? that was why he took the meeting. >> there's lots of things about this that are troubling, and lots of things about this that we have to understand, and the american people deserve answers on this. i don't know who mr. goldstone is. i don't know how in the world he would know that about russia. i think it's probably likely he didn't know that about russia. he wasn't a u.s. agent, wasn't an intelligence officer. no one was expecting that at this time. this was bay back last summer. he may have written it, but, a, i don't think he knew it. >> but don junior greeted that
with great enthusiasm. >> no doubt. no doubt about that. i agree with your point on that which is why there's questions there that we have to answer. there's questions there that the american people look at and say, holy cow, that doesn't sound good to me. i think we owe them answers on that. >> what questions do you have for don junior? >> i think there's a long list of them. i'd like to know his motives and incentives, who mr. goldstone is, what was his relationship with him? why would he think he had information like that? we could keep going. in fairness, to make this point, we spend a lot of time on this, and i don't think we shouldn't. sitting on the committee, we've spent so much time on this over the last six or eight months, but there are also other meaningful events going on, we have north korea, we have the death of more than a dozen u.s. soldiers, a cease-fire in syria. i think those are meaningful stories. i wonder if a year from now we
don't look back and say, i wonder if we lost our perspective, i wonder if we have balance in the things we're talking about? i'm not sure every day we do right now. >> fair perspective. congressman stewart, thank you for being on "new day" and bringing us your perspective on all of this. >> good morning. you, too. >> is this picture of amelia earhart, is it real? the latest twist behind the surprising photo. surprising photo. that's next.

something being towed that was supposed to be the wreckage awful the plane, don't think about it. the documentary theory is the pair were picked up and imprisoned by the japanese. a couple of bloggers uncovered what appears to be the original photo published in a travel logbook in 1935, nearly two years before amelia earhart even took off on her final flight. matt holly, an american living in the marshall islands is one of the bloggers who tracked down the photo. >> this is one of the magical mysteries of the universe, where did the dinosaurs go, where is jimmy hoffa. >> last week i and the rest of the media outlets stood there, as if the photos weren't kwbl enough, dissecting the photo who has been debunked by a japanese blogger who found the photo in japan's national library. the history channel says it has a team of investigators exploring the latest
developments. >> we want to follow the facts where they lead. >> just so they don't lead to gullible's island. jeanne moos, cnn, new york. >> gullible's island is awesome. >> if you watched that special, you'll never get those hours back. just know that. >> still entertaining. >> that's true. >> if you like those conspiracy theories. so how are people who voted for president trump -- >> unintentional segue. >> -- feeling nearly six months into his term? you may be surprised by our next voter panel coming up. i'm leaving you, wesley. but why? you haven't noticed me in two years. i was in a coma. well, i still deserve appreciation. who was there for you when you had amnesia? you know i can't remember that. stop this madness. if it's appreciation you want

trump feel about the major issues facing the president now? in our latest trump voter panel we sat down with a group of people from florida, ohio, iowa and south carolina to see how they're feeling today. do you think that president trump has done enough to stop the russian meddling? >> let's just wait and see what happens, you know? >> yeah, we have a patience problem. let's just be patient. >> why would you ever trust russia? >> it's not that i trust -- it's not about trust. it's about you've got to communicate. >> that's different than trust. communication is different than trust. >> well, i mean, trust is communication. when i communicate with you, i trust what you tell me is going to be true until you prove yourself otherwise. >> well, i actually thought when he met with putin the other day, i think they went in that room for two and a half hours and said how are we going to figure this out. >> figure what out? do you think he really was holding putin's feet to the fire? >> no, no, i think they are
buddies. and i won't tell if you won't tell. >> oh, lord, i don't believe that at all. listen, who had the opportunity to stop it at the onset? obama in august. he did nothing. >> jane, how do you feel about the russia story? >> well, you know, i mean, first off we're talking about with putin and things like that when he spoke to him a couple days ago there's a cease-fire in syria, so right there is like a big win as far as i'm concerned. >> well, maybe that's what he was just now in hamburg, germany. >> successful? >> oh, yeah, i think it was very successful. first of all he's created dialogue with putin, who is another super power in the world. >> and that's a good thing to you? >> that's a great thing to do. you have to talk to your enemies. we have to talk to people who are our adversaries. >> do you like the idea of having a cyber security task force with vladimir putin? >> i'm not so sure about it. >> he tweeted. >> so what he tweeted it. maybe they can reframe it, maybe they can rethink it. but, yes, you have to create dialogue with those who oppose us. >> i hear you. but the so what where he tweeted
it gets confusing because those are official presidential statements. so how do you know which ones to listen to and which ones not to? >> we'll see. i mean, i don't know. i'm not the president. >> john, what do you think about the russian meddling? >> well, i think we'd be naive to think we don't do the same sorts of things -- >> exactly. >> yeah. >> so all of you feel that the u.s. does the same type of stuff russia is accused of doing? >> of course. >> so in other words no difference between u.s. and russia? >> you know what, i think it is way bigger than did russia do something in our election. why did 40% of eligible voters not even vote? that's like over 95 million people that could have voted sat it out because they couldn't bring themselves to vote for either trump or hillary. >> it started out lessen your taxes, then started out russia, russia, russia, then collusion, collusion, collusion, all these things have been falling by the wayside. but i really don't care, as long as he delivers for the american people, gets jobs, look at the
new jobs 220,000 jobs were added and only expected 170,000 the last period. >> i saw the jobs reports it was 225 but most was in the restaurant sector. >> jobs are jobs. >> that's right, our stock market is through the roof. our gas prices down first time in eight years. >> that's what matters to the american people. how does it affect their pocketbook? >> but adding jobs that you want high paying high industry jobs. that's where an economy grows. the service sector, depends on what the service sector is, aren't the kind of jobs that are sustainable. they're either part-time, seasonal. again, so it's six months. i voted for president trump. i would probably vote for him still under this knowing what i know now, but it would be as opposed going in like gene and pull the lever, i go in holding my nose pulling the lever. >> i want to ask you something
about health care. so, colleen, how are you feeling about president trump's take on the health care bill? >> scared. >> why? >> i have bipolar disorder. it's a pretty severe case, and e ri lie on my doctor and many medications to make me stable and able to function in the community. and if he takes that away, medicaid people, medicare people, those who are bipolar, no medications, no doctors, it's going to be like the zombie apocalypse really running through the streets crazy. >> what did you think he was going to do with health care? >> he promised better, but what i've seen come off the block is not better. it's scary to me. >> what do you think? >> when trump said i'm going to repeal and replace obamacare, i kind of thought he's promising something that only congress can do. >> so you didn't take it that seriously? >> i mean, i did and i didn't. he promised he would replace it with something better. congress isn't going to go along with him. he's saying something people
want to hear. >> but it seems that congress is attempting. >> yeah, they are. >> i know, right? right, right, i was wrong. i was wrong. >> and now are you happy with his efforts on it and where congress finds itself? >> no, no, i mean, i have loved ones that have chronic conditions that are functioning now because of the medications they're on and because of the medical care they receive through because i have health insurance. so, no, i'm scared, yeah. >> is there anything that scares you about the health care fight, gene? >> no, like he said, he made the promise to repeal and replace. right now it's in the senate's hands. this is the problem, you've got some republicans that are not working with the president. if i can use the term "you're fired" i would love to fire paul ryan, senator mccain, but the democrats are sticking together. >> because the democrats don't want to repeal. >> no, they don't. >> they want to fix it. >> well, i mean, i have obamacare. >> and does it work for you? >> no, well, i mean, it does, but my premiums went from $350 to $900 a month. >> is that right?
>> yeah. >> and so you would support it being repealed right now? >> absolutely. i think that we should have affordable health care and good health care for all americans that are -- that need it that want it. but i don't think you should be penalized if you don't have -- >> right. >> if you don't want the insurance. i think we all pretty much want the same thing. we all want to feel secure. we want to know that our government is going to take care of us from foreign enemies and perhaps even domestic enemies. >> i think we have an impatient america. i think everybody is so impatient that they want change. they are so desperate for change right now that they want it right now. >> i saw three really interesting things. >> go ahead. >> number one, you know, trump voters are still with him, which is something we've seen across the board. but there were two things in there that democratic operatives that i talk to say they're seeing, number one, health care. you had members of that panel, trump supporters who were terrified. >> i've heard this before. >> by what's happening. >> the people who have -- are having second thoughts that i've interviewed on the trump panels time and again, it's about
health care and it's about what they're going to lose, whether it's opioid treatment or whether it's as you heard colleen there talk about her medication for bipolar disorder. >> which is why democrats are running in swing states and districts talking about health care, they're not talking abtd russia. they think it's a more potent issue. john i think you said he said he would still vote for trump but he would hold his nose. you're not seeing the support fade but you're seeing the enthusiasm. some people say they strongly support are just going to support there. it's a change in intensity there that long-term maybe for the midterms or maybe if more comes out of the russia investigation could be something that makes the president vulnerable. >> i think that's fair. in fact, when we sat down with those folks we found out that the three on the left side are consider themselves still die hard supporters. and the three who were more on the right side say that they're having second thoughts because of the things they articulated. so it is interesting, you know, we like taking the pulse of voters, how they're feeling today six months in. so tomorrow another fascinating voter panel, they're going to
talk about some of the backlash that they all face. some of them voted for obama. some of them consider themselves independents. the backlash that they face among friends and colleagues for voting for donald trump and they're going to talk about how their lives have changed in the past six months. >> can't wait. >> we're following a lot of news this morning, so let's get right to it. it is time to put our great country before paris, france. >> make our planet great again. >> this is a chance for donald trump to escape the kind of political heat he's been facing in washington. >> at the best it's naivete. at worst it's along the lines of element of conspiracy. >> it's always dangerous to jump to conclusions without knowing the entire story. >> you don't take foreign campaign contributions, either monetary or other sorts. >> he wants what's good for russia. and i want what's good for the united states. >> i don't think you have to worry about whether russia's --
