11:00 pm
welcome to out viewers of the united states around the world i'm john value. >> and i'm isa. tweets coming from the white house has been raising questions about president trump's chief of staff, reince priebus. >> it started from this sweet coming from anthony scaramucci. in light of the week of my disclosure information which is a felony i'll be contacting the fbi and the justice department #swamp at ranks 45.
11:01 pm
>> in another tweet, in case there's any am gooty in the tweet i can -- >> but then scaramucci deleted the original tweet and followed up with this. wrong, tweet was -- to leak that all officials are helping to end illegal leads. joining us now democratic and cnn political commentator john tom months. john, we'll start off with you. what's going on? it's like 2:00 in the morning in the white house. what's happening? >> first of all, the idea of just putting reince along with the other sister staff doesn't make any sense. this clearly was a shot across the valve. this was authorized by president trump himself. it's not surprising because we've heard around the rumor mill that reince was next on the chopping block. >> the original one -- >> all i can figure is reince
11:02 pm
saw it, called up the president and said you tell him to delete this. >> speculation but that makes sense. >> this, we've heard through the the last couple of days ks took week in fact, so much talk about loyalty and leaks and leaks. what's the point of him tweet g if he's going to retract it. >> we're certainly getting whiplash but i'd agree with john, that indeed he got the approval from the president, he was at dinner with the president. it is very unlikely he did this of his own aaccord. it's also likely the president who doesn't like to do his own firing asked him to do it. so he went out on a limb and got a ban response from reince priebus and ended up retracting it. he's smart because the president -- and he . >> yeah i'm an -- >> the president doesn't delete tweets. >> well, and so scaramucci is a
11:03 pm
little better on that front in a sense which i think the a good idea. >> that's scaramucci's main task not just getting messages but extinguishing the leakers. if he believes reince is one of those leakers -- >> do you think priebus should make some sort of statement to address this or do you think he's packing his bags? >> i would magic especially in such a public way that reince will let his voice be heard. my guess probably not through a tweet but through a news article. he's not going to let this stand if in fact he did not wrong do. >> all of this coming on the same day the u.s. president essentially rewrote u.s. policy when it comes to transgender american serving in the military. >> via twitter. >> we're going to ask john and
11:04 pm
carolin to stay with us. but we'll get our report now from barbara. >> reporter: president trump making military policy via twitter. today suddenly announcing the united states government will not accept or law transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the u.s. military, sparking instant criticism from democrats and republicans. >> i believe that is an awful decision. i serve an activity duty in the military and i can tell you we don't care about gender orientation or identity or who you love. >> reporter: senator john mccain senator of the services committee also saying there is no reason to force service members who are able to fight, train and deploy to leave the military regardless of their gender identity. but some lawmakers agree with the decision, citing trump's reasoning that the military cannot be burdened with the
11:05 pm
tremendous medical cost and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. >> we need to spend every defense $where we need to. >> a 2016 ram study concluded gender transition healthcare cover for transgender members would increase the healthcare cost for 8.4 millions. would inexcuse the -- >> this isn't about healthcare, this according to donald trump's tweet not allows transgender people to serve at all. >> reporter: that puts the number of transgender service members between 13 and 6600. two, one answered questions, under president trump's ban will those already serving be forced out? and what about defense secretary james mattis who just last month ordered a six-month delay so d
11:06 pm
od could study the issue further? the pentagon will not say if mattis agree with the sudden trump announcement. >> the decision is based on the military decision, it's not meant to be anything more than that. >> reporter: congress they not be done weighing in on this issue. just recently the house defeated a measure that would have banned the pentagon from paying healthcare costs for transgender person. barbara star, cnn, pentagon. >> back to john and carolin. there is a back story here, according to "the washington post" this disagreement in the military pain for transgender therapy. conservator lawmakers, many of members of house and treatment cause cuss threatened to hold support from a spending bill. the -- threatened government spending but most importantly for trump, potentially money
11:07 pm
that are being appropriated for the border wall between the united states and mexico that he promised during campaign. caroline it seems thousands of transgender americans have been actively serving their duties or their country may be thrown under the bus or the wall. it appears yes. it is frightening to think that it could be a major spare of the moment decision, it does appear to be there especially considering that trump has not given direction to the head of the various military agencies, it took them by surprise. it took people in the senate by surprise, this does appear to be a refined -- as somebody put it, republicans asked him to light a candle at the table and he came in and burned the house down. >> how else could this be --
11:08 pm
john? >> i don't see any other way to look at it, there's two political sides. one is trump needs his military spending package approved. that was a key promise beyond the wall. i think the other is, if he's getting any advice from military experts and generals to say they don't want transgender people in the military, that's their progress tifr, the military discriminates all time. if you have flat feet you can't join. >> that means if you can't run, transgender people can run. there's nothing about transgender that's preventing you from carrying out your duty. >> that's bigotry. >> well i'm not an expert on that -- >> well all these discriminations were made when women were banned from the military and all that was debunked. at the end of the day a bunion on the foot -- >> and also rand has it a little
11:09 pm
over 2,000 people in our entire military we're talking about here. >> 2,000 people here. >> 1% of all military yans. >> let's remind people what candidate trump had said about this. thank you to the lgbt of the community i'll fight for you and yet we'll bring in more people -- there are 15,000 patriotic transgender in american in the military fighting for all of us. what happened to your promise to fight for them? how much is this just about politics, trying to distract from a russian investigation and really trying to peel to his face? >> i think it's about passing his military budge and fulfilling his campaign promise for wall. he's sacrificing all the promises he's made. in terms of it just being 2,000
11:10 pm
people or 15,000 people these are individuals. every human being, every person in the united states deserves to be a military hero if he wants to do that. we know he didn't skull with the military folks because that took him by surprise. the rand came out two years ago find their transgender, the conclusion in the military doesn't effect readiness and the cohesion of the unit. we're talking about something of the healthcare that are 1/5 on what the military spend on viagra so it's not about funding. it's being politics and bigotry. >> yeah. as a candidate donald trump was asked specifically about the rights of transgender americans. this is the bathroom bill with transgender, people were not allowed to go to the bathroom they identified with they had to go to the one that match their birth certificate. donald trump was asked
11:11 pm
specifically about that. >> north carolina what they're doing through with all the businesses that's leave requesting all of the strikes that's on both sides. you leave it the way it is. people go they use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate. there has been so little trouble. and the problem with what happened in north carolina is the strife and the economic, i'm the economic punishment they're taking. >> any transgender working in your organization? >> i don't know. >> so if katelyn jenner were to walk into trump tower and want to use the bathroom you would be fine with her using any bathroom she choses? >> that is correct. >> it's all being protection for transgender kids attending public schools. the white house did not recognized lgbtg pride month in june and now you have this ban of transgender people serving in the military. this administration is not friendly to the lgbtq community.
11:12 pm
>> no doubt about it but trump has to focus on his big campaign promises that's strengthening our military, rebuilding our economy -- >> so committed -- >> that's what you have to do. >> well, ivanka trump, the president's daughter has been seen progressive. and she tweeted this a few weeks ago i'm proud to support my lgbt friends and americans who have made immense contribution to our society and economy. given that tweet and the fact she's tweeted that she faced somewhat of a backlash giving what her father announced on twitter. words without actions mean nothing and another, you openly supported and accompanied for the most anti-lgbtq plus president and wasting time. your words mean nothing to us. what does this mean for president trump? >> well, what's fascinating
11:13 pm
about this and this move today is it shifted on the same week the democrats are trying to finally or tick late a message, it's moved them right back to identity politics and the further left of their base is going to be crying about this. and perhaps in their views rightfully so and they're not going to be talking about the economy. hillary clinton didn't lose the election because she wouldn't inclusive enough, she lost the election because she couldn't articulate an economic message. >> it wouldn't an message society it's a myth. trump voters were triggered by a number of thing but there have been two study findings if you had high economic anxiety you were most likely to vote for clinton. so it was on what trump is exploiting, the wall, ex sent terrorism and the racism they fear. >> that had nothing to do with
11:14 pm
jobs that left michigan. had nothing to do with that. >> i'm not saying that's not a real concern but that's not what him trump in the white house. what put him in the warehouse is higher level of racial resistance. >> that's incorrect. hillary clinton did not visit any of these key states in the home stretch, donald trump did. >> that is a different subject. the subject we're on is economic anxiety and trump voters and that is a myth. >> it is clear donald trump made a lot of promises to a lot of people can he hasn't kept and that's the bottom line. >> absolutely. >> okay. donald trump has spent another day tourmenting his attorney general, lashing out at him on twitter and also including the fbi director. so i put this out on wednesday, why didn't attorney general sessions replace acting fbi director andrew mccabe but got big dollars for his wife's
11:15 pm
political run from hillary clinton and her representative!that's just so effectually incorrect and wrong. but john, congressional republicans have this almost limited capacity to put up with donald trump, one behaving badly and lashing out at sessions, as well as examples. it does seem though that at least some of them and a growing number of them are now running around sessions saying enough, because sessions is their guy, and sessions is their guy on a lot of set of issues long before donald trump was their guy. >> i think you hitt on the head, sessions has name recognition around the base. it's a delicate thing. in places like alabama where he was a snaer, he's very popular. it's a delicate thing the troubled members of house are having and the reason they're not breaking with the president on this issue is because he's still popular on his base.
11:16 pm
you're going to continue to see them rally around sessions because he's a very popular figure within the party. >> and meanwhile, the live from the warehouse seems to be moderating somewhat between it comes to the president of the united states and general sessions. take a listen. >> everybody has personality differences and different style aspects of the personality. one thing i like about the president that some people don't like is the upfrontness. >> how much -- what do you make of that first of all? >> really it's just a personality difference. >> well no we have the president of the united states cyber bullying the attorney general. it's clear he want him to resign. my guess would be he wants him to re-sign because the person that follows up in that position would stop the mueller investigation. at the end of the day regardless of motivating it it's
11:17 pm
inappropriate. it's a hostile working environment to have the president tweeting and cyber bullying you online. >> this is just politics. sessions has seen this a lot worse than a few tweets. you want to talk about hostile working, the democrats and republicans do. >> it's not a boss doing it to a subordinate. that's my concern. i am not a fan of jefferson regard sessions in any way shape or form. but i feel for him. >> sessions -- jeff sessions, sean spicer, regardless of whoever's feeling sorry for. >> they need a hug. >> okay. there's also talk that the president is thinking of firing sessions or having sessions to leave and have a reset appointment. what's the political format? >> i don't think that'll happen for a number of reasons, one of
11:18 pm
what john brought up earler he's very popular. being in the house for a long time buys you some friendship and capital. they're not going to allow the session to go on for 10 days which is what the president would need in order to support someone without senatortorial approval. what they're probably going to do is make sure there's not a ten-day period and install whatever process comes next for uponing the income attorney general. >> talking about sessions, something against my mind yet when we were watching a report from cnn, many of his fans, president trump's fans want sessions to remain. he appeals to the core base. how much do you think that has an influence on president trump or do you think he doesn't care? he doesn't pay attention to this, he's made his mind up and he will slowly to continue pushi pushing him against the wall? >> i think the president views himself this larger land life character that has the base like
11:19 pm
lim and everyone's replaceable below him. i don't think he gives that too much thought. the reason the base like sessions is because sessions agrees and has prior to trump on their priorities of shutting down illegal immigration. that's why he endorsed trump so early. >> remember that promise from the president he was going to be really presidential and could be the most presidential. >> he could be. >> the second best presidential since the late great abraham lincoln. okay we'll take two on all that bit president from the white house. he was criticized by a speech he delivered to the boy's scout. >> just think of the amazing moments in history you will witness during your life time. you saw one on november 8th right? right? that was a pretty amazing dr that was a pretty amazing moment
11:20 pm
we have and we're doing a good job, our country is doing so well now. we're building up military, getting great job numbers best in 17 years. >> carolin? >> my response would be the job numbers are part of a trend we saw in 2008 that started under obama administration. but in terms of applying to the crowd, this man has a 36% approval rating the lowest in history and he's if you remembered his audience. >> but you're in front of a group of kids, i mean. >> how do you tell a group of kids about how rich he is. what's the difference. >> he's definitely unconventional. >> never mind. >> okay. >> john thank you very much. >> thanks guys. still to come, marking 64 years since the end of the korean war.

the ohio state says it will incite all its right and remain closed until they deem safe. seven people were also injured in the accident, three people are in critical condition. >> witnesses say part of the ride broke away and riders were thrown clear against two landing on concrete. officials say there were no red flags when the ride was last inspected. turning now to the korean peninsula. the korean war 64 years ago, north korea celebrated the occasion as victory day.
11:25 pm
>> and south korea said its offer for military talks will remain in effect even if the north does not respond by the end of thursdays. growing concern, pyongyang is preparing for another missile test. >> -- north korea uses the celebration to release show case it's military muscle. from the intelligence in the u.s. or in south carolina is there anything to suggest in preparing for just that? >> reporter: we haven't seen anything to suggest for example, a military parade like there was in 2013 and 2014. channels have been saying sometimes through cnn heavy officials have been rolling in a -- that has not happened today. possibly because there are reports of rain in that area which would impede any attempt.
11:26 pm
although the united states and south korean militaries have pointed out they could conduct a test at any point. it's a tense time here, we are near the demille tar rise zones, north korea has the potential to erupt into a flash flood in any moment. this is a freedom bridge behind me. it's been sealed off for many years and now this whole area is heavily fortified with bobbed wire fencing. we've seen a number of military patrols in this area where civilians are allowed. there's a lot of surveillance happening and a lot of soldier on both sides with a lot of weapons pointed at each other. this goes to the underscore of the danger right now. it's been quiet on the north side us a. >> against that back drop you're showing us, the north korean's

11:36 pm
performing a few years ago. in fact the pentagon has more than 130 military bands with more than 6,000 musicians. all that tradition, pomp and circumstances cost viewers $400 million every year. a bargain because of the peace and good will the bands spread around the world. but when it comes to thousands of transgender personnel in the u.s. military president trump has decided the high cost of their medical treatment between $2 million and $8 million a year according to one study, is one of the main reasons to reverse an obama policy which allows transgender people to openly serve. >> we've already been serving for over a year. we've caused no disruption. >> openly? >> openly since june of 2016. we've caused no instructions there's no readiness issues. we continue to deploy.
11:37 pm
we are company commanders, drill operators, sergeants who continue to do the mission and there's nothing that's held us back with regards to moving forward on policy. >> the early morning transiter announcement practically banned transgender from the military service seems to be a surprise to the pentagon, military and the lgbt community. zeke joins us from new york. it seems the argument or part of it, the high cost of medical care that was debunked five minutes of the president's tweet. this seems to have more to do with the president looking for a win. >> well, his tweets were filled with factual inaccuracies. it appears he wouldn't
11:38 pm
consulting with the -- treating medically transgender service members in this country is neglect bl especially whether you think about what it cost to train these service members to do their job in the first place. when you think about landon wilson who was discharged in 2015, he was a naval crypttologist, it cost the military $30,000 to do his job. it would have cost -- so the real cost is in attacking the service members and compromising our military readiness and unit cohesion is putting the lives and careers of 15,000 active serving transgender members on the line. >> one of the most notable is kristin beck the transgender
11:39 pm
former navy seal. listen to what she said. >> well we don't want anything extra, extra money or rights. i just want what any other more than citizen will offer. the respect to serve my country that's all we're asking for. >> they want respect and serve their country. there is a lot of confusion and misconception to what it means to be a transgender person. the president eluded that all transgender people in the military want gender related medical treatment they want surgery. that's just not the case is it? >> not at all. the fact is transgender people have been serving in our military since it began and 15,000 are serving now as we speak. these are thofolks who put thei lives on the line to protect u.s. citizens, to protect the country and our interest around the world and indeed to protect president trump and his family
11:40 pm
so they deserve for their services to be honored and not erased by this president. it is an example of the administration trying to erase the lgbtq community. it started on way one and despite what the president said through the his campaign we've been on the agenda day one. he deleted us from the white house website. a few weeks later he deleted us from the 2020 consensus we won't be counted this time. trying to erase trans service from our military is the latest example. >> it has not gone unnoticed that president trump's announcement to this came -- ending segregation in the u.s. armed forces. that game the model for integrating women, moves which a lot of people argued has strengthened the military.
11:41 pm
>> absolutely it has been strengthened through the decree kads. it started with women being patrolmened through the services and gaining industry to the services academies. it continued with the repeal don't ask don't tell with the path president obama created for transgender service members to serve openly and without the fear of losing their jobs for who they are. so, for this president to try to circumvent the wheel of service members and military leadership that have said we're ready for this and play politics with these careers and lives is just reprehensible. >> the other thing that's not clear right now, the policy on twitter doesn't make a lot of sense. it's not clear if this is a directive, policy, how will it be implemented. this could still will facing a lot of legal challenges. >> absolutely, i think we will see a lot of legal challenges to
11:42 pm
this. the fact of the matter is, i hate to break it to president trump, but we don't create policy in this country with three tweets. it's done through compromise, working together and through a system that has gotten to us where we are in this country, a free and fair democracy. this has not how we do business. president obama knew enough about how we do business to empower the military to lead us to don't ask don't tell. it was the president of joint chief admiral who wen to the hill and told congress that our military is ready for this. we've led it, created the path to appeal and we implemented it. the same thing that's happeninged with transgender community and this president needs to get out of the way. >> thank you so much great to speak with you. >> thank you very much. just ahead we ask is the honeymoon over for the french president. live in paris with the very latest.
