6:05 am
long-term future of our nation, we are suspending our camp pain. reporter: donald trump has said before he hates the guys when he rants against them and a lesson after they drop out. they view as no surprise trumps reaction last night to ted cruz withdraw. >> just so you understand, ted cruz -- i don't know if he likes or doesn't like me, but he is one of a can editor. he is a tough, smart guy. clap back after that, trump said that he thinks ted cruz has an extremely bright future whether the man who he said was the worst liar he is ever worst liar he is ever not saying that now has a bright future. kind of calls at the question of whether we've all been watching the show, whether the general election voters will be okay with that show remains to be seen. for futures, bernie sanders does
6:06 am
have a future after indiana with a surprise victory over hillary clinton. he says he still has the path to the nomination includes slipping around superdelegates. we'll see how that works. almost done with indiana. it came down to this. sandra: jeff flock, decisive. thank you. thank you pitcher dennis dallas "washtington examiner" correspondent david drucker. thank you for joining us write in early. david, your response in your reaction to the big news. the presumptive nominee of the republican party. >> donald trump got a gun everywhere he needed to. it would come down to indiana because he was supposed to be his favorite ted cruz and john kasich got out of the way. ted cruz had an open field against donald trump in the state is sort of described as a mixture between wisconsin and michigan. as it turned out, it was much for michigan yesterday than in. sandra: well.
6:07 am
donald trump passing along comments saying that he's got a bright future. i don't know if he likes it or not talking about ted cruz, but he says he's a very solid competitor. >> this is not surprising. donald trump needs people to fall in line behind him. he needs a unified party. sandra: what ted cruz followed linux support donald trump? >> remains to be seen. usually i would say yes of course. afterwards everybody get together because there's a main goal of making the democrats were beating republicans. but i've never seen a primary where the criticism was so personal, where the insults were so crude. it really remains to be seen whether some of these candidates that donald trump be conjoined with him in a very public way. not because of politics, but
6:08 am
this wasn't just a matter of color not ted cruz policies as corrupt or bankrupt. he basically called ted cruz a liar and that was his nickname. it is going to make this more unusual than he has in the past campaigns. >> he didn't just beat the field. he trampled them, bruise them. he's got to rebuild almost all of these candidates from bush to rubio to cruz to bring all these candidates together. sandra: he doesn't want bush's endorsement. >> well, he does. he's wrong about that. if he's going to win, he has to bring the entire element, all the elements are resold. >> he needs about half a billion dollars to run. >> 15,000 donations of $33,400 to 20 days is the max mumble out under party rules. you have to look at mitt romney.
6:09 am
what are these other establishment republicans going to say and do? they probably treated last night nothing about donald trump, only thanks to ted cruz for making a fight for conservatism, american leadership in freedom. >> all of these endorsements by all these political people whether john mccain or mitt romney did make a bit of difference. they truly want an outsider. do you agree with that? >> i think it's pretty clear that voters are paying attention to endorsements. this is not a year were the so-called establishment of the party are big respect names within the party mattered. i talked to a lot of voters who have respect for people giving out the endorsement that said it wasn't enough for them. such i think donald trump is going to need fundraising and is going to need the support of the party because of that.
6:10 am
he starts out at a deep disadvantage in that regard because this is going to cost them more than the primary date. there's a question of whether or not his liquid enough are willing to spend liquidity talking at least a quarter billion, probably half a billion. by bet hillary clinton raises $2 billion. it's not that it can't be overcome, but it's an advantage for the democratic the out. sandra: i want to get to the fox news exit polls because of interesting things we're learning here. we want to know what was on voters minds. dagen: the economy of course. this is the first thing. the most important issue facing this country was the economy. 40% economy and jobs on the republican side. this is what we have seen in exit polls in almost every primary contest in recent months. how worried are you if you are a republican in vienna about the direction of the economy? 67% said very worried.
6:11 am
that was only 7% down there. on the flipside, had democrats feel about the direction of the economy? only 40% were very worried among democrats. i've got a couple more. not too worried or not worried at all was 15%. some people feeling comfortable there and it was still a top issue at democrats. 43% was their number one issue. sandra: still a shocker that the economy is number one. that just keeps going month after month, keeps going down. trump comes out and says we'll fix the economy. it's going to be great. that sounds great. i like that. but how appeared when you talk about how he needs to go back and repair some of these bridges he's burned, that's a difficult branding issue because part of what has been so attractive to
6:12 am
many people is these very forceful. you are a liar. you are not good if you are terrible. i'm going to win. it's going to be great. dagen: i make it -- think it makes it easier because there's so much there that are defenders of touch. he won't go after the e-mail. the american people are sick and tired. >> he has to be careful not to alienate the women voters. sandra: what do women care about at the end of the day? the economy. david drucker, thank you for joining us. a huge step in the quest for self driving cars. the major partnership that could soon have been hitting the road in style. plus forget all-day breakfast nearby mcdonald's is picket on a shakeup to bring customers back to the table. when it comes to small business, she's in the know.

6:23 am
country. >> we are going to bring back our jobs and save her job and people will have great jobs again. this country, which is very divided so many different ways is going to become one beautiful, loving country. sandra: trump's comments come ahead of a steady stream of economic data highlighted by the april employment report on friday. economists call it are 201,000 jobs added last month. that is down from 215 in march. the employment rate expected to hold steady at 5%. but of course the big question here, while donald trump if elected be to greatest -- what you see he is playing out that voters like so much? to his credit he has been touting this from the very beginning. >> one of the things he's been strong on his protectionism. the probably have with american jobs is there too much going on overseas and so would need to
6:24 am
block things from overseas and we will have our jobs here which sounds really great because of the terrified thing when you've lost your job because the steel manufacturing is much cheaper than it is here. but it's a lot more difficult to implement it because the detail is solace where the devil lives. half of what america imports actually goes into the manufacturing of new things we produce. if we restrict what we bring in, talking about 35%, we make our cause 40% more than the stuff we make is more expensive and would've a tougher time selling our stuff to the rest of the world. >> i think these poll numbers are very problematic for hillary clinton because mostly republican candidates, a lot of democrat voters are saying the economy isn't really worrisome shade. hillary doesn't have a message different from what her up obama has done. the democrat message has been
6:25 am
mystified, doing as well as we can. i don't think that's a winning message for democrats. trump has to basically say i'm going to bring these voters back. the other interesting thing is we are going to unite the country. that has to be his new theme because he's seen as divisive. i'm going to unite the country. sandra: we haven't even had much time to talk about the fact that bernie sanders just one last night. his message on the economy is winning. dagen: a new poll done last week that came out that a third of the millennialist, a third of young people were socialists. a third support socialism, but a larger percentage reject capitalism. i think one of the major things donald trump could do if he wins in november is target regulation because the massive upheaval that you've seen in giant parts

-- sandra, most of them heading into the primary yesterday understood that bernie and hillary were neck and neck in the polls and accepted that could have gone either way. hillary had not campaigned in the state here for six days prior to the primary yesterday. she thought she had it in the bag and bernie took it last night. this is adding to the fire that there's room for ideas in the democratic party. bernie sanders won majority of the white vote 45 and under and majority of male vote and independence and bernie's message of economic equality has resinated with blue-collar union workers here. his path to victory is narrow, he plans on campaigning into california and beyond and he is not backing off.

6:35 am
to be outside from the politicar donald trump, let's bring in political analysts scott, good to have you here this morning. i guess the question we want to ask you, both cruz and trump claim to be political outsiders but voters overwhelming say that trump is the true outsider. >> of course, he has never held office and say things that politicians say. this is a guy who refuse head would stay in the republican party in the very first debate unless things went his way. he is an outsider and people in the political world have missed, totally and completely missed -- sandra: they have missed a lot. [laughter] >> they say the same of bernie sanders. and voters are saying, nobody could do any worse than the gang
6:36 am
that's been running things for the last 20 years. sandra: fair enough. >> there's a lot of reasons to believe that. skepticism from outside the system had to happen this way. six months i was on with everybody else that donald trump couldn't do it. i thought me might make ted cruz acceptable to the establishment. he made cruz part of the establishment. sandra: you were looking at the data more closely than anybody sitting here. what are you looking as far as general election matchup, donald trump-hillary clinton because the polls up to now show that hillary clinton has a better chance of beating donald trump. >> the polls right now do not mean anything. sandra: whoa. [laughter] >> but we are in a situation -- we are in unchartered waters. i can make the case that donald trump as the nominee will get beat by 15 points, i could make
6:37 am
a case that it will be close. sandra: wait, you're not putting a third option that he beats hillary. >> actually he could or it could be bernie by 15 points. it is so unsettled right now. sandra: is it realistic to continue a potential bernie sanders nomination? >> i would say 10% chance. look, superdelegates can switch depending on what happens and last night was a surprise. >> dagen: just really quickly, one poll that's valid is now voters view trump as a stnd-alone individual and clinton. his unfavorable among voters are at 65%. hers at 56%. it's high but again, when his are already 10 percentage points higher, that's notable. >> absolutely.

this is a new jersey-style election. we have governors elected all the time that we don't like. chris christie number's were under water because that's part of what you expect. people are rejecting the political system. the biggest danger other than the fact that she's a lousy campaigner, she's the wrong person for the wrong person in time. sandra: you mentioned chris christie, at this point in the game everybody is wondering, everybody is start to go wonder who a vp candidate might be, who donald trump might be tapping for that, any ideas? >> no idea. i think the bigger question is who will be willing to accept. i thought kasich was playing to be vice president but he made the comments where he said i don't want no part of this. here is the interesting thing about this.
6:39 am
this election last night in indiana on the democratic side i think is important. you have the presumptive democratic nominee that's losing , voters don't really want hillary. she has big problems of her own. i disagree with you. trump has huge negatives but hillary, what is the message? >> last column i voted people are looking to throw all 345 members of congress. dagen: the thing that helps trump, who would have thought that he's the presumptive nominee. hillary unfavorable could get worse because she has sanders on the trail and all supporters who don't like her. >> dagen, we are missing something about primary process.

7:05 am
like you and others that there's no victory. >> the people in indiana agreed that it's over for ted cruz, he left it all on the field but apparently not last night. his whole family came out, father, mother and kids. it was clear that-going to be the end for ted cruz. >> from the beginning, i've said that i would continue on as long as there was a viable path to victory. i'm sorry to say -- [shouting] >> it appears that path has been foreclosed and so with a heavy heart, but with boundless optimism for the long-term future of our nation, we are suspending our campaign.

[laughter] sandra: donald trump just tweeting a few moments ago, so interesting that bernie sanders beat crooked hillary. bernie sanders won. he then tweets, i would run against crooked hillary clinton than bernie sanders and that will happen because the books are cooked against hillary. he will say on the following day that hillary has a bright future in the democratic party. [laughter] sandra: good to see you, jeff flock, thank you. during victory speech last night
7:07 am
donald trump praising his former republican rivals as jeff flock was hinting at specifically giving a big shotout to dr. ben carson. >> i have met some of the most incredible competitors that i have ever competed against right here on the republican party. dr. ben carson who was right up there, one of the first, he just called me and said, it's a movement you've got going, we have to do something because it's an incredible movement and dr. ben carson endorsed me, and i want to tell you that's an incredible man. sandra: let's just bring him right in, donald trump supporter, dr. ben carson. >> good morning, sandra. sandra: what did you make of donald trump's very complementary words about you last night?
7:08 am
>> well, not only about me but about a lot of people which means that he's moving in the direction of trying to unify the party and i think that is an extremely positive finding. you know, i know donald trump and i've had a chance to talk to him in private on a number of occasions and he's a very reasonable and accommodating person and all you have to do is talk to the people who know him and who have worked with him for a long period of time, you see, he's not the monster that many people try to portray him. sandra: clearly your endorsement of him is still there and still strong and you have met with donald trump, are there any discussions about a potential vice president pick on your part? >> certainly we've talked about who might be a good people to place -- sandra: has he asked you, sir? >> i don't like to discloses
7:09 am
private conversations. sandra: all right. so that's not a no. i will take it at that. what does donald trump do now? where does he take the campaign now as he's going to focus on hillary? >> well, there's a lot to focus on. there's no question about it. not only will he expose some of the weaknesses of hillary clinton and help people to understand that we don't have to settle for that, but i think he will also be talking about the divisiveness that's going in our country when we have isis and others trying to destroy us and the fiscal responsibility that compromise its the future generation, he probably understands that than any other people that are running. >> by the way, first of all, you
7:10 am
were really one of the national figures in the republican party to endorse donald trump. i think it made a big difference and i know that you have been working with him for the last several months. hillary does very well with black americans, she's won decisive victories with black americans. the middle class is the strike zone for donald trump, can he win over black voters to the republican side of the aisle? >> well, yeah, we've been talking about, you know, a lot of the people who traditionally have not voted republican and i think the messaging has been lacking for republicans. we are going to be talking about how do you provide ladders of opportunities so that people can climb that ladder and become highly success, portions of the fabric of america. this has not been emphasized
7:11 am
correctly. and what democrats have done is handouts and pat people on the head, and you know, it's been effective, i admit but i think we have a far more effective way of doing things, emphasizing education and giving people on choice, you write your own ticket. you look at the big inner cities, 50% high school dropout rates, not because people don't want to be educated, because they look around, we are noting. so they drop out. those are things that we have to fix. sandra: we have to look at the new exit polls. dagen mcdowell is joining us right now and she's got a look at what is on voters' minds. dagen: leave it to the math nerd. i was refer to go -- referring to myself. [laughter] dagen: among indiana republicans, 59% wanted somebody
7:12 am
outside of the political establishment, experience, it only it came at 35%. those wanted outsider 78% went to donald trump. pretty incredible there. you can see that. did the party -- did the campaign and the gop energize the party or divide it? 56% of them believe that the gop campaign has divided it and 40% that it has energized the party. it's the exact opposite. 73% of them believe that the party has been energized rather than divided, just 23% believe that it has been divided. there's a big divide there between republicans and democrats. i'm curious about how dr. carson feels about that. >> yeah, there's no question
7:13 am
that we had a very rocus process and people were very mean to each other and you would have thought that after 2012 we would have learned the lesson but we didn't. the ointment and when people think about her and how it's going to destroy our financial underpinnings and empower our enemies, i think that would be enough for people to start saying, you know what, we have to start thinking about chirp -- children and grandchildren. your reaction to bernie sanders beating hillary clinton. >> i fully expected him to beat her and if they didn't have such
7:14 am
a crooked system, i think that he would win. sandra: all right, good to have you. thank you. >> thank you. sandra: all right. we will be right back.

7:33 am
indiana a few days talking to voters of all ages in places ranging from the grocery store to the library and going into the primary yesterday most voters told us they arrived at the conclusion this could have gone either way because the polls were indicating bernie and hillary were neck and neck but now bernie pulled it off and this is being called a major upset and one of the biggest reasons is hillary clinton had stopped campaigning in indiana for nearly a week heading into the primary yesterday. she thought she had it in the bag. now that bernie has won indiana it is adding fuel to the fire that there is a place in the democratic party for his ideas. in indiana as expected sanders won the young vote 45 and under and won the majority of white votes, clinton took 75% of the black vote. it seems bernie's message of economic equality for all resonated with the voters and he says he will carry that message and momentum into california. take a listen. >> a pretty good chance to win. i think as more and more
7:34 am
delegates to the democratic convention take a hard look at which candidate is generating the enthusiasm, excitement and voter turnout we need, is not become president. >> reporter: we have not heard much from hillary clinton. her twitter account sent this tweet last night saying donald trump is the presumptive gop nominee. if you agree we can't let him be president, bernie and hillary have their sights on donald trump and all three candidates have their eyes on the general election. sandra: donald trump is tweeting away in the last hour, he is targeting what he is referring to her as. progressive hillary. despite texas senator ted cruz dropping out of the presidential race fox news indiana primary exit polling results show he won
7:35 am
a majority of the republican churchgoer vote with 47% and donald trump trailing by four points. joining us is family research council president and ted cruz supporter perkins. good morning to you. >> good morning, how are you? sandra: what do you think of ted cruz dropping out of the race at this point? >> obviously very disappointed in the outcome of indiana and concerned about the future of our country, more importantly my children's future, the country they may inherit. it is a different election cycle, a lot of decisions made, i feel like a lot of evangelicals elevated 1-way highway, just got word the bridges, a lot of people deciding what to do from here. sandra: donald trump is on a mission to win over religious voters including your self. will you be able to support
7:36 am
donald trump? >> i hope he will try to win those voters. evidence as you decca at the polls in indiana suggest he does not have them in the bag as he would like to hold like he has suggested. not his style, his personality, it comes down to his policies, his running mate. who is going to vet his judicial nominees? what type of policies will he advance as president. those evangelical conservative voters and weekend churchgoers are very concerned about the moral climate, not just trade deals but the moral climate of the country and -- sandra: the tail end of the question, will you be able to support donald trump? >> i am not ready to say that. the jury is open. going back to 2008-2012 the republican candidate was unable to close the deal, all of the party especially the conservative voters, i hope he has taken note of that and we
7:37 am
will not only campaign on issues and throw a bone to conservatives but truly make the integrated into his platform, his vision for america. >> steve moore here, if you look at the last 10 or 12 primaries donald trump has done surprisingly well with evangelical voters. in many states he beat ted cruz with evangelicals but doesn't seem like it is a huge weekend for him. the religious conservatives in the country, what does donald trump have to do specifically? what issues for people like you to come out? we need enthusiastic support to beat hillary clinton? someone like you, donald trump will need your support? >> it is correct we have to have a unified party to beat hillary clinton. i want to take issue, don't take issue with you often but if you look at the definition of evangelical, there is a division
7:38 am
in that term. this is consistent throughout the time, those who take their faith seriously have not been with donald trump. for me personally it will come down to who is his running mate. who is going to vet his judicial nominee? we now know how important the court has become in shaping big cultural and political landscape of the country. sandra: i was looking up earlier in the campaign cycle, evangelical leader was quoted saying in support of supporting donald trump at this point, we are lucky for someone who doesn't hate us. would you support the same spot? >> that is a good start. i would prefer to have someone who likes you. they don't have to be exactly like us. we are not looking for the creature in chief, someone who
7:39 am
is going to campaign and have revivals for the nation but we want someone who understands the moral component, what makes the civil society work and the importance of the role of religion so hostility we have seen in the last 7 years from the obama administration, we want that to be gone but more than that, we want someone who will say yes, we understand the religion plays a key role in our society and not just within the church but within society. sandra: sound like you are not willing to endorse him or say you support him at this point but do you believe donald trump would fulfill that need? >> in the past, so evangelical leaders in tune to respond to the first appeal and thomas said this, one thing i agree with him, evangelicals, christian
7:40 am
leaders have sought access over accountability. the church, evangelicals, we are not here -- we are here to be the moral conscience of the republican party and provide influence to government. that is what i am doing. i am not going to fall in line just because he is the gop nominee. sandra: we really appreciate you coming on this morning, thank you. still to come, what may be to blame for the devastating fire at a historic new york city church on greek easter. thinking about going stag to your prime? consider this, taking a presidential candidate cut out. we will have that next. the pursuit of healthier.

8:05 am
first up, your reaction to the victory for donald trump last night. he is now the presumptive nominee. >> it was a great victory for donald trump. i've not been supporting them. the fact is he's overcome all the odds and last night was a solid indecisiveness jury. it's important to party find a way to get behind donald trump. i still have a number of issues with it. sandra: what are those issues, congressman? >> maybe national security trade policy to me by being so anti-trade, especially with asian countries because for instance we can in effect block out china and force china to fund two s. for negotiations. as far as pulling troops out of japan in korea, that also burns that china's position in the pacific. making deals with food without abolishing.
8:06 am
it could be substance to what hl policy. sandra: so you have been rather supportive of donald trump, congressman and ted cruz now out of the race. should i say you have shared your disgust for senator cruz. natocruzow out. >> yeah, listen. i'm honestly not a fan of ted cruz. but he won the race, boss, withdrew. it speaks for itself and i hope that ted cruz can find a way to work within the republican party. sandra: what you make of donald trump's complementary words in his thick tree species said he was a competitor and actually complimented him in many ways saying he's got a bright future. i really came at a for him question or >> i don't think that. i think if he goes for vp, maybe hnicenug s

8:08 am

8:09 am
who recently interviewed tennis court was being called an authoritarian and doesn't mind associations with history or taters. congressman king, your reaction to that. >> that's going to do more to unite the republican party. elizabeth warren is over the top. people choose donald trump. she's basically implying he's a racist, but somehow she gets away with it. that is wrong. donald trump is a tough guy, but he is out there. i'm not a child fan, but i don't know anyone in new york who instead of calling donald trump are racist. as a liberal card once they are on the run right away they come back. do it confuses me when you say you are not a trump fan pages that many will not support the gop nominee? >> i endorse marco rubio and i think i have some real issues with donald trump. but he's the nominee. i will vote for him. the extent of my support will be
8:10 am
how much he modifies, not modifies, salvages positions. i have real issues on trade. sandra: steve moore has a question or >> first of all, i have to get this off my chest. this is an historic moment. we just heard the statement said i'm going to pulp the biggest political upsets in the country. this is a period with donald trump has done to win the nomination, none of us would've thought this possible year ago. the question i have for the congressman, great to be with you this morning, is this. how does trump do this? he has to start by bringing the party back together because it is so fractured right now as you know. is his biggest problem the conservative priority, or is it the more moderate who i think you sort of put yourself in the more moderate camp. what does he have to do to bring the party together questioned arc i think he can beat hillary clinton. i don't believe these polls for one minute the session will be
8:11 am
10 by 14 points. the thing he's done that's really impressive and you touched on this as he has brought millions of new voters into the republican party. how does he capitalize on that? >> first of all, i 100% pro-life. i believe in strong national defense. i would hope he could sit hope he gets it done, good solid foreign-policy people around him and show how he can tie his america first policy to policies which will not weaken america's national defense. his heart is in the right place, in digs in the right place, but he has to realize it's not as simple as you make it sound. we can't be pulling troops out of japan. >> what about his point that maybe nato should pay a bigger share of the burden of defending europe. >> first of all, the countries in europe have not done a good job at all. but on the other hand you do have lapped it up or lithuania and we can expect to pay. the other country should be.

8:35 am
i think we have serious problems that are not being addressed. sandra: congressman, reis prebus says that we have to focus on defeating hillary clinton. do you support donald trump? where do you stand now? >> no, i don't think he offers anything and hardly do i think that hillary offers anything, but ultimately, i think the policies stay the same. i've looked at this for so many years. we were so hopeful there would be a fiscal conservative in the office when reagan was in, but the deficit tripled during his eight years, nothing changes. control of the system is much bigger than the political parties and i like to talk about the deep state, those people in charge of the military industrial complex, the medical industries, the fda and all of these groups are so powerful, they control what happens, not the political parties. sandra: congressman, this is
8:36 am
the fear though, that if donald trump is now the presumptive nominee, that republicans, like yourself, don't support donald trump, i wonder if you're going to vote for about you is this just handing the election to hillary clinton? >> well, i don't think it matters. see, trump had his problems and hillary has hers. most people know hillary better because of his track record. republicans if they'd watch her closer. and-- . dagen: congressman, you're essentially saying it doesn't matter who the president of the united states is. that's what i'm hearing. >> well, no, i think it would, it's secondary to what the american people think about economics, whether they believe in socialism, whether they believe in preemptive war, that's the only thing that counts. so, yes, it makes a little bit of difference, but not between the two of them. i mean, we're not going to-- who is going to bring the troops home. dagen: are you not going to vote in november?
8:37 am
>> i'll vote and i'll make my vote count. i'll vote for an alternative party. dagen: gary johnson. >> it makes no difference so i'll vote for an alternative. there's bound to be somebody that believes in somebody that comes closer to what the american tradition is all about and free markets. i'm not going to vote for tariffs. it would be pretty hard for me to do that. >> steve moore here. >> hi, steve. >> i was a big supporter of rand paul my first choice and i want to challenge you on this. i'm not sure i agree with you-- i think there's a huge difference between what hillary clinton stands for and what donald trump stands for. donald trump wants one of the biggest tax cuts, he wants to repeal obamacare, he wants to reduce our military presence all over the world, many things that you have favored yourself. i just kind of don't get how you don't see a big difference between these two candidates
8:38 am
and the stakes here? >> so you like bashing china and putting on tariffs on-- >> no, i don't like it. >> how about you talk about backing off on the military. he's a big champion of, you know, massively increasing military spending. and here we have more military spending than almost everybody else in the world and yet, we have to rebuild the military. who is going to attack us? it's part of the system. what about the president's working group on financial markets, will he attack that or the next bailout will wall street be protected. i think it will be. whether it's hillary who has a close tie and trump is not going to disappear and not protect wall street because the crash is coming and trump will bail them out just like hillary because people who pull the strings and say, you know, do they have control of the federal reserve? well, not really. sandra: congressman, let's talk coal because this has been a big one the past couple of
8:39 am
days, i want your take on hillary clinton's comments, flip-flopping on her position to kill the industry. listen. >> we are going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business, right, and we are going to make it clear that we don't want to forget those people. those people labored in those mines for generations. >> i don't know how to explain it other than what i said was totally out of context from what i meant because i have been talking about helping coal country for a very long time and i did put out a plan last summer. and it was a misstatement because what i was saying is that the way things are going now, we will continue to lose jobs, that's what i meant to say. sandra: okay, that was her responding, congressman to a coal worker who was put out of work and it gets worse from there. he went on the air with fox
8:40 am
business and here is what he had to say. his name is bo copley, a laid off coal worker and told melissa and david after the bell. what he said about meeting with her. >> i'm hurting now. there's a lot of families that are hurting and going without right now. we're not worried about down the road. we're worried about what we're going to do for our families now. sandra: congressman, your take on that? >> well, i think it's more arrogance. she certainly sounded very arrogant. i did this, i'll do this. but you know what they fail to see the big picture. it's not popular to look at in politics. because you have involvement with lower than market rates of interest. then we subsidize and encourage alternative fuels, then we go and we allow fracking to occur because it's free money, and at the same time, what they shouldn't argue is a pro coal industry or pro natural gas or pro-energy. we need pro-freedom. we need to short it out because
8:41 am
we don't know what the value is of coal. i happen to think it's very valuable and would be, but with much interference and interest rate. you get distortions and unemployment. why don't we care about the unemployment in the fracking industry? that was a creature in many ways of government and now they're laid off. they're just as destitute as the coal people, but i want freedom of choice, it will not be perfect, but it's so much better than a managed economy. we live with a managed economy and neither hillary or sanders or trump offered an unmanaged economy because they want be to involved because they're not ready to say no more interest rate rigging by the fed. if you want to look to distortions, look to the fed. sandra: congressman ron paul, we appreciate you coming on with us this morning. >> thank you. sandra: well, coming up, fresh concerns over takata, the japanese air bag maker facing additional recalls due to ongoing safety concerns.
