12:00 pm
i call it all-time high. amazon not at all-time high but closings in on $1000 per share. what a day. by the way, the stocks added $5 trillion since election day. my time is up. neil, it is yours. neil: thank you very much, stuart. we're focusing on security today a week after a nation comprehends what the heck happened in las vegas. growing security at any public event, including what is going on in new york's midtown for the columbus day parade. they are on heightened alert, make sure nothing, nothing out of the ordinary happens. connell mcshane in middle of all of that. connell? reporter: they are on heightened alert couple reasons. we heard about arrests last week. three individuals arrested for some planning isis-inspired attack in new york city thwarted by federal authorities. we're thinking about las vegas as we watch floats and marchers
12:01 pm
go up fifth avenue at columbus day parade. i will show you three specific things that the new york city police department is doing. as i do so i want to emphasize, these are things they always do. they're very used to securing outdoor events in this city. we're standing across the street from st. patrick's cathedral in new york city and as we start to look across the street, it may be obscure ad bit here, because of a float that is moving there, are four members of the counterterrorism unit. counterterrorism unit of nypd are heavily-armed. body armor. young police officer being greeted by a young boy with t-shirts or ponchos. those for are standing there, making their presence known. as we move to the right, heavily armored vehicles, they want to make a point. everybody knowing that they're here and ready for everything. the other thing they're doing, private businesses like saks fifth avenue, on corner of 50th street, fifth avenue,
12:02 pm
they're working with business owners and employ reese. they have a training program, neil, where they tell employees what to look for. what to be aware of. what a explosive device might look like. they are doing that for quite some time. we're looking up through the rain drops here in new york city, remind you rooftops are obvious concern. not as obvious to us in terms of security but there are nypd sharpshooters and snipers positioned on many rooftops around the city. they're looking for open windows, anything that might be out of the ordinary. neil as i go back to you, they do this all the time. they're used to securing new year's eve and times square and other large outdoor parades and events, they say this is something they always do, but relatively new police commissioner here in the city, jimmy o'neill, says you can never guarranty you're doing enough. you do all you can to keep people safe. that is what they're doing here.
12:03 pm
at least at this particular event, the crowd may be a little smaller than might ordinarily be. they were expecting a million spectate it is. fair to say they have far fewer, the weather isn't cooperating. it is raining. nypd doing their best to keep everybody safe. neil, back to you. neil: a live shot from times square if we can, as this heightened people's sense of alarm we got word of three individuals plotting attack on times square, beginning with trains frequented the area, and goal of one of the participants, take out as many people as possible. we have former fbi special agent david shepard on that. david, when you look at that look at security you have had to deal with and elsewhere, what do you make of the precautions they're taking now? a lot of people get nervous but there is a reason for that, right? >> you're looking at not letting somebody change their life what you want to do. the security precautions they're
12:04 pm
taking in now, some they have been doing for quite some time. the real difference on hard target or soft tar guest a accessibleility. the biggest thing we can do to response, counter teams, to stop as fast as possible the event. keep people looking around. shop owners have people trained. when you see something, say something, hear something, read something, let people know. a lot of these people say something ahead of time. 81% of active shooters tell people ahead of time they will do it. neil: you handled security at venetian resort. so from that vantage point you don't mind my sharing something casino mogul steve wynn shared with our chris wallace at his own resort. steve wynn. >> we profile or inspect or examine everybody that enters the building, and under most
12:05 pm
circumstance it is unnecessary to wand people or do any kind of invasive procedure. the things we're looking for that represent potential threats are much more, much more obvious and, and allow us a great deal of freedom in allowing us not to interfere with the normal flow of people in and out of the building which is close to 15 or 20,000 people a day. neil: how do you do that, david, on a practical basis? maybe that was upped a little bit more post the las vegas shooting last week but to sustain that? can resorts do that? can your old place, venetian, any casinos, hotels, anywhere in the country do that sort of thing where they're wanding luggage? they're scrutinizing people checking into the hotel? what do you do? >> well, right now, some of them are starting to do that. has that been done throughout the united states? no. we don't routinely check bags.
12:06 pm
is it starting to change? people are looking at it more. hard target, soft target, accessibility, we want to look at somebody. we want to protect people inside of the building there. we have to look at it, regardless of a potential robbery or potential attack on somebody else, we look at that. how do you end up looking at it? interacting with the person to start with. talk to them. look at body most. facial expressions. look at some of that to start with. a lot of people are in there. how often do you do it? anytime you come in do it. you call it displaced criminality. i can't always stop somebody doing an act but it won't be done there. they go someplace else. we keep working, working, making sure everybody is doing the same thing. the more we help protect guests, better as a community and society. that is what we keep looking at. keep looking, keep changing, keep modifying. neil: yeah, but david, how do you do that when some
12:07 pm
candidates, even like the case of paddock, the man behind the attacks in vegas last week, if he doesn't fit a profile or certain, you know, image of an attacker, someone who would pull this off? we might put things together show social media profile that shows this guy is dangerous. nothing seen so far indicated that. so how do you handle that? >> you're looking at him. there are 56 reasons that a shooter is active. it doesn't get back to the motive and reason why he did it. a different person he is. he is a lone person. pretty much by himself most of the time. he doesn't interact with people but not everybody does that. when you look at criminal activity from saboteur or a spy. a spy will not turn around do same thing as person who is suicide bomber or somebody else being a robber. neil: how do you notice that? you're pretty astute at this
12:08 pm
stuff, i'm not. but if you're looking at someone, trying to see whether that could be, there is something off or different about this particular person, how do you know that? >> part of it gets back to looking at your own instinct. if you feel something is not right, then you should report it. if you hear something that seems it be a little out of whack, you need to report it. that is part of how we do it together. tell your local person within the facility, i'm not comfortable with this person. if somebody makes your hair stand up on back of your head, doesn't seem right, just report it. neil: understood, david shepherd. thank you very, very much. david and i were chatting. we want to update you on something seems unusual but worth reporting here in the sense that something is developing here. president trump golfing with senator lindsey graham at trump national in virginia. as best i can tell it has been raining there. the president and senator, former competitors for the nation's highest office when they were battling for the
12:09 pm
republican nomination, lindsey graham has spoken his mind, concerns about this president and some of his policies, but golfing can make fast bedfellows of one's critics. we don't know what to make of this, or whether the two are having long-delayed or put-off golf game but they're playing, in the rain. and stocks are up. , in the rain. more after this. is this a phone?

12:13 pm
neil: all right. well we know that senator bob corker, who is not running for re-election and he and donald trump have not seen eye-to-eye, upping ante going after each other. charlie gasparino, wonders whatever justification he has going after corker, he is losing someone potential yes vote on tax reform. what do you have, charlie. >> who are republicans going to vote no. mccain is probably one. rand paul is probably another. susan collins, probably another, right? guess what? donald trump just added corker to the list. so he has four republicans likely, why he is golfing with lindsey graham making sure not number five. neil: number five. >> this is pretty interesting. here's the thing. this investment show. neil: what do you make of that golfing? >> just to stop him, he is
12:14 pm
counting votes in the senate. he knows it is probably not going to happen if he loses one more. neil: lindsey graham is entree to get to mccain, to get some others, right? >> right. neil: more than just winning his vote. >> lindsey graham voted to repeal obamacare, mccain didn't. they operate on different places. neil: i'm sorry to keep jumping up on you, if you ad call on tax thing how is it looking? >> how many democrats will they need to get those? are those democrats really out there? i think it will be difficult. neil: even got all three, donnelly of indiana, who else, manchin of west virginia, height tam of of north dakota, didn't sign on tax cutler from chuck schumer, even if he got him all, if you lose that many republicans it's over. >> it's over. here is the other thing that is interesting. i think he can get democrats in, only if he starts watering this thing down.
12:15 pm
phil gramm wrote great column. neil: excellent. >> if you want supply-side econmics, you have to cut taxes for rich. you have to. they are the people that spend money. they pay most of the taxes. if you cut for middle class, you will not get bang for the buck you're promising. neil: they should embrace that, because top 10% pay 71% of taxes. >> federal taxes. neil: 45% of all taxes. numbers that are much, much higher here than in places like he said sweden and france. >> it is ridiculous that donald trump and gary cohn, these guys are talking about cutting middle class taxes for people that don't pay a lot of taxes. neil: but their hope that would win democratic votes. you seem to say it won't happen? >> it might. think what you're selling your soul for. selling your soul for pyric victory. watered down tax cuts, don't do anything. watered down tax reform. you may be stuck with one or 2% growth.
12:16 pm
markets are down marginally, net-net, say this until i'm blue in the face, president trump, unless he starts going real crazy town, even more than what he is doing now with corker, which was completely off the charts insane, will have to do something really insane for markets to really fall off. neil: we should explain that the president said corker was begging for his support. corker claims otherwise. furthermore corker wanted secretary of state job. that wasn't happening. someone is lying. >> obviously the president. here is the thing, neil what is scary, his first impulse, almost even before corker is even, corker didn't say anything, he didn't start it. his first impulse corker told me i will not run, when he called him up, to basically smear the guy and lie about it. neil: they have always had a bit of a fractious relationship. >> they have been back and forth. they were good friends. neil: most presidents in the past, maybe this one is different, i understand, it goes with the flow. you can deal with it.
12:17 pm
>> why lie about the guy? neil: white house says they're not lying that he did that. >> so you, who do you believe? neil: i'm a news person. >> let me ask you this. who did you believe when trump said he might have tapes of comey? who did you believe when trump said his crowd sizes are bigger than anybody -- neil: clear to see that he did have twice the crowd. >> from the pictures. neil: you have seen the pictures do you think this could boomerang on him, he loses all this support. >> listen -- neil: if he is pre-then saying if i go down because of those sobs? >> by the way these sobs get elected, you need them to push through your agenda. the bottom line if you lie about somebody, guess what? he will not help you. if you're going to lie about someone to make him look stupid, he is head of the senate foreign relations committee, he will
12:18 pm
come out saying you're lying and deranged. neil: i can't imagine corker seeking out the president's support given their fractious relationship. i can't see it. >> i can't imagine him begging -- neil: you mentioned market, meanwhile at the outset, today's softness notwithstanding. they have been on incredible run. your view is tax cuts are very small part of that. >> of this, yeah. so far. if you get it. neil: i will turn around as i do with you a lot on this subject, if it looks like they're not happening this year or looks increasingly not happening at all, then what? >> i still think the market will trade fundamentals of companies. neil: still at these levels? >> here's why. trump, net-net, he put a lot of pro-growth people in key positions of federal bureaucracy. fcc, u.s. attorney's office. justice department antitrust division. sec, epa, you name it. this administration is ratcheting back regulations and
12:19 pm
i am telling you every ceo says when you ratchet back regulations that goes to the bottom line pretty heavily. it is almost like a tax cut. he is doing it by fiat. neil: if this unravels in other words in your mind? >> we'll have a correction, of course but no. neil: you think it would be close next week to the 30th anniversary of 87 crash, do you think we get anything like that? >> i don't see it. unless donald trump does something really crazy. what you worry about is sort of, sort of extraneous events, right? something happening in europe. north korea can always happen. does trump say something or do something so outrageously off the charts that people question his sanity? neil: always something, an event we didn't see. catalyst. >> i will say the financial crisis, all you have to do is watch me at the time for about a year, year-and-a-half i was talking about a credit crunch and banks being impaired. usually this stuff is out there. this would have to be extraneous
12:20 pm
thing and something -- neil: general rule has been interest rates have been unusually low. >> they may come up. neil: there could be an event like '87 program. >> i have counterveiling argument, just so you know i talk to other traders. friend of mind, larry mcdonald, pretty smart guy, been on the show. neil: sure. >> crunched numbers on last employment report saw some decent signs of inflation. like average hourly wages was, earnings was going up fairly dramatically in the last employment report even though we had issues with the storm. neil: right. >> he believes there could be an inflation spike. if you believe -- neil: that is last thing people are expecting, right. >> if you believe there is inflation spike, fed will have to increase interest rates much more dramatically. what you will have, that will put breaks on this rally. what happens? yields go up. stock prices will probably climb because people then start buying bonds at higher returns. neil: surprised to see you
12:21 pm
working on columbus day. >> a friend of mine was marching in the parade. my friend mike, he was honoree. hey, charlie. happy indigenous people's day. neil: that is what they're calling it. >> i think they should call it happy indigenous peoples performed human sacrifices day. that is what they should do. neil: guarding columbus statue 24/7? >> it is ridiculous. comparing columbus to general lee. columbus founded new world. was not fighting for a country that was predicated on slavery, now that slavery happened, at that point, i mean of course it did. but he was not, his whole life wasn't dedicated to preserving a country whose, whose modus operandi was slavery. neil: but what is interesting, he is heralded as he should be, for getting lost, you know. had no idea --
12:22 pm
>> italians are bad at directions. did you know that? neil: asks for directions he arrives there. i admire that. >> by the way did you know he was blind at end of his life, he was staring at the sun so much. pretty amazing guy. i'm proud to celebrate columbus day as opposed to iigenous people who performed human sacrifices day. neil: there is always that. mike pence, walks out nfl game, everyone says that was a stunt. players who kneeled during the anthem, that is not a stunt. i don't know where you come out on this, my friends, but we have to be very fair and balanced on stunts, and someone is pulling a stunt, not doing that. after this.
12:23 pm
our recent online sales success seems a little... strange?nk na. ever since we switched to fedex ground business has been great. they're affordable and fast... maybe "too affordable and fast." what if... "people" aren't buying these books online, but "they" are buying them to protect their secrets?!?! hi bill. if that is your real name. it's william actually.
12:24 pm
hmph! affordable, fast fedex ground.

12:26 pm
neil: by you no know the story, mike pence walks out after the
12:27 pm
indianapolis colts, san francisco 49ers after the national anthem protest. people say he is pulling a stunt but not a stunt the other way with them kneeling. pick and choose, whatever, didn't seem very balanced. a new poll, regardless what you think of the subject, in ice after the love americans, a bit overdone. the nfl is least possible professional sport, that is saying something, right below roller derby. i don't know if roller derby, but you get the point. "the blaze"'s lawrence jones. this is getting crazy, really, really crazy. first on the vice president's yesterday, what did you make of that? >> same criticism with the kneeling thing. a lot of people on both sides playing politics with this issue. reality, both movements matter, whether looking for marginalized or respecting our troops and
12:28 pm
those paid ultimate sacrifice with this experiment we call america. but the problem is, both sides are looking at it with tunnel vision. they're not respecting each other. and it has become more about politics now. neil: really has. lawrence, i always think if you want to you're free to do that people argue, corporations which nfl is has a to demand certain things. in this country you're free to kneel or not, but vice president is free to bolt. you're both doing what you're doing. but in ice of media portrayed as the vice president, a stunt-puller here, not the nice nice -- guys kneeling down. >> that is not fair either. both sides are doing it, guys kneeling, staging a protest, seems like mike pence is doing a counterprotest walking out of the arena. neil: right. >> but, neil, isn't this an opportunity for our leaders to
12:29 pm
come together, we got professional athletes, commander-in-chief, the vice president, to come together to talk about the issue both sides are so upset about? i think we are missing that opportunity. i believe that talk of wanting -- neil: if they talk it out? in other words, you have to get a handle, what are the protests, what are the things you're bringing to the fore when you kneel and protest what is it that you want to bring out there? >> yeah. neil: where does that argument go? how do you advance the argument? what do you do? >> well, the initial movement, and i believe that colin kaepernick was not perfect person to do it, especially when he wore the socks that depict cops as pigs, but when you talk about people in community have disconnect with the police and police brutality, that is genuine conversation we need to have as americans. the president invite to the white house, talk about
12:30 pm
community splitting, which a lot of republicans are leading on, that is healthy debate american people want to see. president trump is entertainer, knows athletes, could easily bring them to the white house. i think we're missing the moment. neil: for the president to assert himself in this, i'm not minimizing, you know, the anger that builds on both sides for the issue. but for the president who has to get tax cuts through and far bigger pertinent issues benefiting all people in this argument, whether you're pro or anti-kneeling -- >> yeah. neil: he is distracting it. he made it a bigger issue. that is what i fear. >> he did make it a bigger issue but the problem is not the president having comments on kneeling. he is an american like everybody else. when you tell a private business what to do, especially some of those private businesses, those owners decided to stand with those players. i think when you made the debate about the players versus trump,
12:31 pm
i believe the whole movement is -- neil: that is when he opened the wound. where i slightly disagree with you, my friend. he is not just any american. president of the united states. he is most powerful man on the planet. >> correct. neil: he inserts himself into something by accident or design he changes the course of the debate. i would ask your thoughts as you touch on nfl as business, jerry jones say cowboys, this is not happening here, this sort of thing will not be tolerated here. will he catch hell if one of his players dues something like this during the national anthem, not before, and fires him. >> i'm a dallas cowboys fan. neil: i knew there was something suspicious about you. >> jerry has a brand. he took 180 million-dollars investment an turned it into a $5 billion company. jerry did a balancing act.
12:32 pm
two weeks ago he kneeled before the national anthem, hey, we saw what you did, i don't like you coming after my players. then he decided he would still show respect to the anthem as well. i think that was a balanced approach. i don't see america seeing him taking a knee but i think a lot of players will speak out on issues like police brutality. neil: he has gone so far, jerry jones, to say, you stand for the anthem or you sit out the game. how do you feel about that. >> that is always been -- he just went public with it. that is always been the unsaid rule, which is -- neil: continue supporting kneeling before the anthem if you want to, but during the anthem, no. he is within his rights as team boss, ceo to do that? >> he is protecting his brand as well, neil. you can't be america's team and be kneeling before the anthem. this is not saying -- neil: who made them america's team? when did you make them america's team? >> i think it is the world's team pretty much now since we're the most valuable franchise in
12:33 pm
sports right now. neil: oh, man, i thought the washington redskins were. i might have missed that. good to see you, my friend, lawrence jones. hot debate on both sides. man, oh, man, if you criticize one for a stunt, i'm fair and balanced on stunts here. why i love to tick off people on both sides, as i do. never trumpers, always trumpers, always liked, i feel vulnerable. more after this. we're talking to you, cost inefficiencies, and data without insights. and fragmented care, stop getting in the way of patient recovery and pay attention. every single one of you is on our list. at optum, we're partnering across the health system to tackle its biggest challenges. at optum, we're partnering a♪ ca♪ yes you can ystem ♪ can i kick it? ♪ yes you can ♪ can i kick it?

12:36 pm
12:37 pm
neil: quick peek at the markets, two very big events sort of considered to be the two things that could undo this entire market, iran and north korea. our friends at "barron's" looked at melt-up before the storm. we had a big melt-up. stocks are going up and up, even
12:38 pm
with slight decline now, by the day's end, one or all market averages finish up. they have had appreciatal dating back to fdr, 1932, 1933. "barron's" doctor comed tore, who was there in -- barrons.com editor. good to see you, my friend. >> in 1933, that was a long, lousy period after that. i remember it well. neil: yeah. talk about this and melt-up thing "barron's" got into and all of that. talking a little bit about the, not the fort, so much as the enthusiasm, that is out there. well-placed or what? >> well, remember, it has not
12:39 pm
been a great 12 months, there have been a nine-year rally. there have not been that many that long. the only good news the economy is not surging so there is no risk of overheating. look the way the market has gone up, that is slow and steady. that is one of the things we talked about, i think we're about to hit a new record of 333 days without a 5% correction. when you look at the previous correction, the market went up more steeply during that time. it is a tough to say. this is hated rally. go back to 2009, 2010. nobody believed it. they continue to not believe it as market went up and up. so that is a good sign. don't want everyone getting enthusiastic. neil: are we getting there? >> it has been a subpar rally. people who say it is getting long in the truth, bulls come along, say, it yeah, it has been, but been so tepid it can afford to go longer in the tooth? >> we saw a bull on the cover of
12:40 pm
"the economist.." when you see a general interest magazine putting a bull on a cover always a dangerous sign. neil: game over. game over. when you guys do that, i don't know. play this out for me, we're very close, you and i were chatting during the break, close to the an verse of the '87 stock market crash. it looked so clear in retrospect but there were a lot of big fundamentals worried about. that bull market was only five years old at time. there were concerns, portfolio insurance, program trading was a catalyst that tipped it over the top. but for this market, it is concern that interest rates are too low. we're in a bond market, i.e., potential real estate bubble, you say? >> one thing, one bad omen, potentially is, what investors are willing to not, what they're willing to accept in terms of taking on risky bonds. spread between high yield bonds
12:41 pm
and ultrasafe treasurys is very, very narrow. neil: that means what. >> if you're a lousy company with not great odds of success investors are still willing to lend you money just to get a little bit extra yield and when people reach for yield that is one sign that investors are getting too enthusiastic. there was a newsletter writer died a few years ago, ray devoe. neil: sure. >> more money lost chasing yield than at the point of a gun. that is great thing to think about. neil: do you see anything in interest rates, jack, that gives you pause, your editors and writers pause? >> simply the fact that, investors are willing to accept such low yields. you know, at some point -- neil: eventually a point where they don't, receipt? >> exactly. there is no catalyst that we see would make them do that. speaking more broadly, the reason it is happening, central banks pouring money around the world, pouring money into the system, it has to go somewhere
12:42 pm
and that's why -- it is not just bonds but stocks are generally inflated. not crazily inflated -- neil: above historical norms. >> they're above historical norms. people say bond yields are low you pay more for stocks. if you are conservative, do i want to pay 22 times -- neil: if you get lower taxes they are not so wacky. >> because earnings go up. neil: jack, thank you very much. i told you this guy was smart, jack otter, barrons.com editor. the president is demanding funding for wall, "dreamer" deal, the democrats said keep on dreaming. the president says keep on dreaming if we get a deal what you want. in that pleasant environment, we'll have more. omes to investi, looking from a fresh perspective can make all the difference. it can provide what we call an unlock: a realization that often reveals a better path forward.

12:47 pm

that weinstein has given the party. both president obama and hillary clinton have cashed five-figure checks but as of now, they also are keeping their wallets and their mouths closed. but big names in hollywood are not. meryl streep is keeping out, walling weinstein's behavior an abuse of power, saying it is disgusting. neil. neil: hillary vaughn, thank you very, very much. president trump said to use executive order to undo at least parts of obamacare including provisions that provide flexibility for individual healthy americans to find coverage, at least alternative its to coverage they're due now. gerri willis has details. hey, gerri. >> neil, president trump is set to issue an executive order aiming to expand insurance options for people that buy their own coverage or small business t would make people able to band together to buy insurance what they call association health plans. those plans would be free of
12:49 pm
some affordable care act regulations like the requirement that cover a set of package of benefits. also it, would ban lifetime coverage limits as does aca. two, the president would order agencies to wind back an obama era rule short term medical insurance that is low cost option that provides limited coverage. executive order would allow them to buy plans up to a year once again. the finally the executive order would allow expansion of health reimbursement accounts, hras. they are programs that employees can pay out-of-pocket costs or premiums. guidance from 2013 prevented pretax dollars from being used to buy health insurance on individual market. the initiatives are drawing fire from aca providers. they will disable the exchanges and young people and others looking to cheaper alternatives to obamacare. mr. cavuto, back to you. neil: gerri, donald trump is
12:50 pm
ready to make a deal with democrats. maybe they can deal with the daca issue to resolve it to everyone's comfort. if, if, if, the if you help me build that wall. therein lies the rub and chasm between two sides. blake burman at the white house. reporter: there is a lot of ifs. president and nancy pelosi and chuck schumer had a dinner at white house a couple weeks ago. thought there would be a deal struck on daca the "dreamers" act. the president and white house put out wish-list if you want a deal on daca, this is what i want to see happen, says the president. it is lengthy with a whole lot of issues on it. among them to give you a few here. he wants funding for the border wall built and funded. there is also the threat to withhold certain federal grants for certain sanctuary cities. this document released by the white house, documents plural, calls for overhauling of the green card sim.
12:51 pm
that includes a process how to treat unaccompanied minors. the president also wants to see hiring of some 10,000 i.c.e. workers. schumer, pelosi, put out a statement yesterday basically saying, you got to be kidding me on this one. here is what it is, neil, and i quote here, we told the president at our meeting we were open to reasonable border security measures alongside the "dream" act but this list goes far beyond what is reasonable. the proposal fails to represent any attempt at compromise. however kellyanne conway said earlier on the network, that it is the democrats who should be willing to come to the table. >> it's a real challenge to the democrats to tell their constituents what is so unreasonable about enforcing the law, stop granting sanctuary to illegal aliens in, some cases, we know who have been deported multiple times, broken the law multiple times? reporter: neil, when you look at this wish-list, take it all in the entirety, add it all up, it is a major if the president gets
12:52 pm
a lot or some of that, it would tensionally amount to comprehensive immigration reform. you know very well there is a lot on the agenda before you get to any of that. neil? neil: very little time to get to any of that. >> right. neil: thank you very much, blake burman. the read on all this, florida republican congressman, francis rooney, house foreign affairs committee member as well. so much to talk with you. first on immigration, finding a middle ground here. is that likely? do you think there will be reform? will a wall be part of it? what do you think? >> despite the sanctimonious of the democrats this morning i think this is middle ground. we're talking about programs plate tantly unconstitutional illegal actions like the sanctuary cities business or daca program itself. so to enshrine them in law, to turn daca into a permanent program enshrined into law we better get serious reform of visa system, of the border and
12:53 pm
our entire concept of immigration. neil: if they say we'll do all the above, democrats, not just that wall thing, where is this going? >> there are areas where wall is helpful. there are several hundred miles where there is vehicular barrier, not pedestrian barrier, would lend themselves to a wall. neil: to your expertise among others, the idea that the president is looking to decertify the iranian deal. you were early on, dealing with a democratic counterpart commission or 20-member group make it upon themselves to assess these matters, to explore these matters. this seems to be circumventing that. what do you make of it? >> president has the obligation to do 90-day certification decision. neil: right. >> that is separate what we're talking about. i jumped on to the idea of a helsinki type commission, because i think we want most ice
12:54 pm
we can get focusing on iran and their heinous actions. neil: creating such a commission, majority of the commission is saying don't interrupt international agreements, however, specious they may appear, would that solve it? >> well, it would keep the debate open so the american people could hear all sighs. neil: i see. >> not just hear one side. neil: where do you think that is going? it is pretty clear the president will decertify it. obviously not as black and white as that i understand he would provide opportunities and venues to sort of address some of these problems he sees within it, but others fear by going this route, the u.s., as a country risks not being worth its word. that we kept these sort of things going through democratic and republican administrations. the fear seems to be, if this president backs away, then our word, our contracts, our commitments are not our bond. what do you think of that? >> no. i don't really agree with that. i think this is another one of
12:55 pm
these obama "lone ranger" deals he wanted to do. it is not ratified by the senate in proper form for enacting treaties and things. he want ad deal so bad i think iran got things they shouldn't have got. we have limits we should not have on our ability to inspect. neil: what would that mean, congressman, as far as the punishment we could mete out if we deem iran is not complying? technically they might on the nuclear part but technically not on the agitation part and stirring up all the trouble, fomenting with north korea et cetera? >> you're sure right about that they strengthen their shiite, hezbollah alliance across syria and middle part of iraq to our detriment, against the stability of the middle east. the ink wasn't dry on that thing when they were launching ballistic missiles. that is sticking it in your face to the obama. neil: you're a prominent house member, but this back and forth with senator bob corker who said
12:56 pm
what, regardless who is right or who is telling the truth, do you think it is hurting the chances of get enough republican votes on tax reform? >> no. i think senator corker is lame duck senator now. there is lot of conjecture bantering about in last couple days. in the end of day, america wants tax reform and we're historic moment to get it. i did a speech on the house floor i made a point tax treatment determines capital investment which determines job formation. neil: sir, thank you very much. >> thank you. neil: taking a look what is going on today, as we get ready to cruise into the second hour here, columbus day parade, it is wet and nasty in new york but everyone is safe in new york and police and security officials make sure it remains the case with a number of big outdoor events they're pushing that.

trained to all right. the parade going on in new york city with all of these heightened fears ever since what happened in las vegas. and a public event, anything where crowds gather, particularly new york where they apprehended three guys who were apparently planning some pretty gruesome stuff. i was avoided and so far they are avoiding any problems. let's get a read from former cia operations officer sam batters. , everyone worries after events like this as you know, that
1:01 pm
couldn't happen again, and the venues where height is a big issue becomes suddenly heightened concern. how long does that last before we get over that or is it now just into her sort of behavior that we keep looking up? >> i think the unfortunate reality is this is where we are, so we better not get over it. we have to maintain this kind of vigilance continuously for as far into the future as we can see. neil: so, when you go to some of these big venues were a lot of people gathering now we know about stephen paddock come the las vegas shooter scoping out other locales like chicago where they were going to have a rock festival were certainly las vegas where they were going to have a children's festival, boston, fenway park. he didn't seem to have any particular goal in mind for the type of people or group of
1:02 pm
people, just a lot of people. when you make about? >> you put your finger on exactly what it is, just mass casualties. what that is is an endless number of potential targets out there and there's only so much shall be able to do to protect them if you're looking at it as a purely defensive kind of thing. neil: i am wondering for a lot of these folks and i don't want to give away the tricks and secrets of your trade now, and by giving what happened in las vegas and given the fact he had an enormous advantage with height, a lot of people are scrutinizing to go into buildings, which of course has been the case in the new york area, post 9/11 anyway. but now hotels, casinos where they check not only your bags in some cases. not all. but the people whose bags they are, and that sort of thing. when you make of it? >> what it means again if we're
1:03 pm
talking about what i would call defensive measures at the site company really have to dramatically expand we be looking at. let's talk about nfl games. you have to open someone's purse but to continue a whole range of other options out there and that means a whole lot of other things you'd better be prepared to deal with. neil: i am curious how long this lasts. in year, for example, there is still a pretty heavy police presence in times square fifth avenue for the parade. but i tend to notice after a few days in people's original fears ease, so does the police presence. that is human nature and its probably budget nature. he can afford to keep security tapes around the clock. but that is when bad guys tend to strike when we let our guard down. what is the balance? >> the unfortunate reality is we don't have an end date.
1:04 pm
we can't just declare an end to these hostilities if that is the right word. we have to do what this is hard into the future as you can see. what it tells you is you can't rely upon just fortifying every event. you talk about these guys wrapped up planning attack in 2016. that is more of the answer. go take these guys at the street before they have a chance to attack. neil: just like they did in the case of these three they apprehended in new york city. the m., thank you very, very much. what we look for either good or bad as isis on the run for the first time in three years. very, very close right now to pushing isis out. they've been on the run throughout the region and that has a lot of folks breathing a sigh of relief. we have with prior attacks have been by almost precisely such moments when people were thinking isis is on the run. former navy seal hector delgado. when you think about?
1:05 pm
once cornered, more desperate. >> neil, glad to be here. i take great pleasure in hearing isis is about to be decimated or they are getting decimated right now. i say that because i lost to navy seals and ramani come iraq. mike mansoor and mike lee, to see them parade through in trucks and are you and see where they are at now is great to see. tree into so when you hear of their troubles on the battlefront and you know how successful they are at inspiring terrorism on the world front, is there something with some security experts who fear an act of desperation they will encourage more the kind of stuff that we've seen in europe and elsewhere. >> absolutely. they continue to inspire others and we can't get ahead of ourselves and say just because they are physically decimated that they're not going to go in the ground. that's probably what they'll do.
1:06 pm
we don't know of course the authorities are investigating in las vegas, and that they may have been inspired and take responsibility for these actions. they are desperate, cashews and there appeared clearing it out will be one big operation and there will be more deaths of this comes to a close. neil: how do you police their ability as an organization to inspire, you know, nutcase says to find a voice for them and to encourage them to do god knows what anywhere. have you get a handle on that because it seems like i'm not saying paddock. we still don't know what was behind it. across the globe, we've seen these describe those who do that, to get inspired and to get sort of frost up to do what they
1:07 pm
did. >> the psychology behind it is just so interesting. they look at franchise individuals, just someone tradecraft were used to listen and bring someone into the organization, whether you give them some type of prize money, so forth and get them in the pipeline and make it rain washed in a can identify who are the ones to wear the bomb is and what are the skills others may have been useful organizations. neil: so sad. retired navy seal hector del gato on isis. the good news is they seem to be on the run in so many areas including raqqa and others. the bad news is because of that they could be galvanized to other regions. top income and not all the time, but enough that folks are weary. investigators still worried about why and how we are still not coming to a clear profile on
1:08 pm
the las vegas shooter. how was it so much about what he orchestrated, when he was able to pull off the more you still don't know why or what got him to do it. dr., good to see you. obviously, there were signs among some people who neil stephen paddock is a loner, kept to himself. others said he was rude, but nothing, nothing to indicate he would pull off what he did and even a week now after the fact we still don't know. i should stress that there is months we don't know and maybe they do. still no clear profile of the guy or why he did what he did. what do you make of that? >> when it comes to severe mental elements, just because there's not a history of a per se doesn't mean the person wasn't struggling inside of their own mind having mental
1:09 pm
illness. how strange that is, how devastating that is, how terror that is commit various person to person. the fact that we don't know is not surprising to me. my biggest concern is we are hoping that if we uncover what his diagnosis is per se that then we can prevent this from happening in the scariest thing some people are so skilled at the art of deception that they can pretend and imitate how they're supposed to act others. interestingly enough and manipulation and antisocial. and they are lacking and we are learning more everyday, aren't we? neil: yeah, we are. i know in workplaces they do profiles to see the environment
1:10 pm
they're applying. but they telegraph anything that would be sinister or dangerous. almost everything we've heard about the quiet distant, aloof, so many that the profile want this. so, how is it going to change things? i know a number of casinos, for example, las vegas area aren't fully scrutinizing bags closer than they used to, but in the case of steve wynn, and you know, the casino mogul, they are looking at profiling. what i want to ask you is what are they profiling? what are they looking for among the people who check in because quite a few do. >> yeah. quiet, distant, aloof, not connected with others. those are potential sign of an anti-personality disorder. but at the very least, maybe
1:11 pm
they are manipulative in their ways to get what they want, but a worst-case scenario they are mass murderer. how can you know for sure? the way i look at it is if somebody does have a history of disconnecting from others, that is a sign of concern because we are social beings. it is not an indicator that the person and not put straight into so many as we don't have a specific that if we see this in a person, then we will know for sure. but i will tell you, disconnecting from others, and that concerns me. neil: you are not going to be able to tell that if someone is checking into a hotel. >> well, have we ever met the oddities of people where we feel that inner feeling that there's something not quite right, the person doesn't really connect with you. but maybe their rash, maybe something else going on with
1:12 pm
them. we might not know, but the fact is this is someone in the people who knew them and the people who knew how he was and we find out more in more that there were signs. here is the bottom line how i look at it. if you have a family history it's been hard at in terms of homicidal, suicidal, psychopath. these are things we've heard about. how can bat not affect you or at least be considered. in the medical world if you have a family history of cancer, we women know about it because there's a predisposition for somebody to have that. why are we so ashamed of and fearful of acknowledging and spotlighting venice with a family history of some clear mental illness, severe come antisocial personality disorder, that that is not something to consider in spotlight as a
1:13 pm
concern. neil: again, you are then faulting the children for the sins are problems of their parents, right? >> well, no. what i am doing is saying why can't we be open to considering at an early age to provide era peak, education and lifelong therapy management. in sports, somebody who is great at what they do, they get coaching throughout their greatness of what they do. why can't we provide coaching at an early age to cave to learn how the skills and tools throughout their life plan. so that way we can spotlight as a therapist working with somebody here because this is somebody now they can trust. they're working with a therapist throughout their lifespan. but the people do a sports. why can't we do it the human mind, with mental health. neil:.or come in very good seeing you. thank you very much. >> thank you for spotlighting mental health awareness, neil
1:14 pm
appeared neil: in the meantime, stocks virtually unchanged here. president trump is very close to breaking at least a moderate record that was last scored by george herbert walker bush, the first president bush. at the rate he's going, maybe franklin roosevelt although that one will be a little bit tougher. i will explain in just a bit.
1:15 pm
1:16 pm
1:17 pm
1:18 pm
neil: already appeared by now you know that mike pence walked out of the colts 49ers game yesterday. jerry jones and disrespecting the flag will not be tolerated. >> there is no question in my mind for the dallas cowboys are going to stand up to the flag. if anything that is disrespectful to the flag and we will not play. neil: fox sports one cannot speak for itself cohost jason whitlock. what do you think about? >> listen, it is long past time for nfl ownership to try to take control of the situation. look him in the nba has had a rule in place prohibiting the players from doing anything during the national anthem other than standing and supporting the
1:19 pm
flag in supporting that moment. the nfl needed to do this a long time ago. you have all these nfl players that loved to talk about their platform. the one he is my platform, my platform to do xyz. the nfl is not their platform. there are 30 some odd nfl owners. they stand on the backs of a bunch of former players they made sacrifices for these guys to make all this money. their careers are short, three, four years tops and it's not their platform. wearing the dallas cowboys you work at mcdonald's come you can't do it while wearing their uniform. long past due by the nfl ownership to put their foot down and say look, guys, we support what you're in supportive. you just can't do it in uniform during our football game.
1:20 pm
we have business to conduct here but the time and place for everything. what jerry said here is appropriate. neil: you know the espn house is very critical of donald trump on these issues and inserting himself in nfl eight had said jerry jones and his mood that the answer is to boycott advertisers if jones were to follow up on this. when you think of that? >> i think that there are people lake jamele kill another people in the media. it's good for those of us in the media that want to go back and forth over this issue. she's offered an option for the people that are coming in now, it gives jerry jones. i don't think it's the right solution. neil: she's a disney employee.
1:21 pm
she says change happens when advertisers are impacted if you strongly reject, the key is advertisers. is she -- so what happens and what should happen to her? >> espn is in business at the national folk alley. the advertiser she's talking about boycotting are likely espn advertisers as well. someone probably needs to have a talk with her, explained the business she's been common explain his paying her salary and that would be the end of it. i'm watching a lot of people from nfl leadership, and that clearly doesn't understand their business to the players who have no understand why they're making millions and billions of dollars.
1:22 pm
it is not the place if i were espn i would have a conversation with jamele hill. neil: i was reminded by bob baker who runs obviously espn. he did not like the way she discussed responding to president trump and involving that now. i guess it's incumbent upon him because he regretted remarks to fire her. >> well, i'm not sure if he regretted her remarks come in meal. if you look what he said last week, he was very sympathetic to her comments about trump intently needed to step into her shoes and he got personally involved and decided not to take any action against jamele hill. bob iger seems like someone who wants to run for president in
1:23 pm
2020 and anything and anybody who's in opposition to president trump, bob iger seems to be in supportive peer neil: the fact he's seen that any must be looking at reading for espn dropping, he's got a delicate balance there. >> he appears to be all in on this and this might be why he's tweeting out these things because the head of disney seems to be in full support. >> the reason i raise that at all is because he seemed to be walking ahead of the pain here in the last couple days trying to clarify that position. you might be right, maybe he had nowhere to go here, but to also turn away from this one. he's definitely upping the ante. >> he very well might be applauding. but, there is a segment of a
1:24 pm
full revolutionary mold and love this division within sports. there are segments of the media population in my mind that while full-blown chaos and war among the races and one way to promote that is to politicize sport and making a very divisive issue. the national anthem and the flag has been a unifying thing for us to enjoy sports. you go to a sporting event about the competition. not about politics. not about your differences. we have a symbolic moment at the beginning where everyone stands for the national anthem and the guys go out there and compete and we enjoy it. we left her politics at home. there is a group that wants politics full-blown in sports and they wanted to be as divisive an issue as politics. again, all i can do is evaluate
1:25 pm
people's actions. there seems to be a group of people, perhaps at espn, perhaps other places in full support of this kind of division. neil: watch closely no such response for espn over what jamele said. you are going to sit at the game. didn't say they would fire them. whether it's paid or unpaid. they thought they found a middle ground to jason's point not so long ago when they would all kneel together in unison. this is going to test that. we will have more in just a second. you know who likes to be
1:26 pm

(vo) go national. go like a pro. >> welcome back to coast to coast. i coast. i nicole petallides taken a lot of mixed bag of stocks right now. the dow jones at the lower but it's been an incredible year
1:30 pm
with many stocks at many stocks hitting all-time highs in the dow hitting a record high. dow components, microsoft and dupont, those are to the upside today and hitting record all-time highs and microsoft over 22% this year. some of the other winners include two thirds are in the green today. commodities also higher. take a look at some of the winners on the dow. wal-mart, ibm, helping to lead the way. wal-mart coming out to launch the mobile express return. just so you can return your item in 30 seconds. look at some of the names under pressure in that would be ge, nikki, goldman sachs after downgrade and also ge cofounder, the big picture j.p. w. still thinks the bank stocks the bank stocks have run to rally. watch for some of those earnings on friday to see if we can justify those evaluations. >> thank you very much.
1:31 pm
the position that espn had taken the last time jamele hill had taken on a controversial issue interfering on nfl policy regarding the treatment of those. at the time the position as espn was the action she took were an appropriate but they made no move to discipline and that's what i was talking about when i talked about bob iger's position with that. now she is sort of double down on all of this by saying that jerry jones makes good on his threat to punish players by the national anthem, they should ensue a boycott of nfl advertisers, which again is going after the folks who support where you work espn as well. no indications in the past is i
1:32 pm
would start with the comments were inappropriate now. do read for marketers watchers, sarah wesley. we will begin with you. no matter how you slice it, this has been notwithstanding a very impressive rally. the strongest we've seen a year after the election of anyone going back now to george herbert walker bush, of those that they hold and taking the staff right now to the games that we had right now after fdr which is much lower and dicier levels. what you make of that and whether this is donald trump inspired elsewhere. what do you think? >> investor confidence has
1:33 pm
soared on has soared under the promise of tax reform and the promise of deregulation furniture and administration. i do think president trump deserves a lot of credit for that since the days of the campaign is laid out an aggressively progrowth agenda that was focused really happily on having a more aggressive and competitive corporate tax system cutting red tape for businesses and at least on the deregulation side, the trump administration has really delivered. they've gone after deregulation were aggressively than in past republican and assertions have. the tax reform piece will be interesting to see the prospects for that legislatively whether the market responds because a lot of the economic optimism has been attributed to the fact the president has promised to bring the corporate tax rate down, and if those things that those things that have been no be to see if the market responds to that. neil: we will see if this is really inspired by tax cuts or the thought that they are coming and they don't come or they are late in coming.
1:34 pm
then what? >> will come of this president unlike our previous president understands entrepreneurs create jobs and economic growth are not politicians. because of that, so far it is kind of like do no harm on the hippocratic oath. it is not just here in the united states. it is a global phenomenon. up 20% year-to-date, emerging markets stocks up 25%. it seems like a strong america is good for the whole world. who knew. this is the greatest country in the world in the greatest economic engine in the world. if we can just get one or two of these little things, you'll see a massive economic engine go crazy. art laffer is on our economic board. he said that is the single thing that can help promote this economy and global markets this tax cut. neil: john, what you think?
1:35 pm
>> i think about 18 times earnings now on the s&p. the market looks a little bit rich. it's unreasonable to expect tax reform health care reform that is not happening. it took years to happen in 1986 and i think we could see some tax cuts and repatriation of money. that makes the market sheet. when he talks about president trump what he gets credit for, the first two months market has been flat for two years previous. the only change was president trump getting elected. since then it's been corporate earnings driven the market. neil: that would imply you don't need the tax cuts to keep this rally stable or at least not reverse it. >> will test the theory towards the end of the year whether it's looking like with the white house will stick to this timeline they laid out by october through november. a tax overhaul of the code would be unrealistic. they might get some tax cuts through and that's isolating the variable.
1:36 pm
you would be a little of tax cuts didn't go through how much of an effect that would have on the market than you might be able to look back and say tax cuts driving this rally or not a part of the bull market. neil: guys coming thank you so much. reports right now that the president is moving very quickly to decertify dear randy up later this month. does he have the power to do that? alan dershowitz on not after this. i accept i don't bike as far as i used to. i even accept i have a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. but no matter where i ride, i go for my best. so if there's something better than warfarin, i'll go for that too. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin, plus had less major bleeding
1:37 pm

1:41 pm
develop the capability to build up a vast nuclear arsenal within a relatively short time. this is the fundamental flaw committee agreement. i wonder if it is that the administration might seize on to say no, we are not going to do it. >> and another factor. just recently the international atomic agency diffuse the power to look at military installations and came to the conclusion that it could not now serviced by that iran was not now seeking to develop mechanisms, which would enable it to develop explosive nuclear reactor, namely a nuclear bomb. we have reported the international atomic agency -- energy agency, which supports recertification. the president has the power and the obligation to decertify if he doesn't believe it's an international interest or doesn't believe iran is complying with the deal. i think he will be certified.
1:42 pm
congress then has a certain period of time to reimpose sanctions are not. it is a divided responsibility and i'm pretty confident with certified have the obligation to do so. >> i know the way president obama went about this did about this is about this did not go by international treaty obligations standards to the trump administration feels perfectly within his right doing presumably what is then going to do. others say that it is a slippery slope, that he gives the integrity of the u.s. signing on to any agreement and will make the world think twice good with you think? >> well, it is all president obama's fault. he could easily have gotten a treaty. if he gets a treaty, it rhymes future administrations. but when you live by the sword, you die by the sword good when you try to circumvent congress, remember congress is overwhelmingly opposed to the deal, both the house and the senate. he prevented the senate from

having to vote on it even. it was simply his deal. when you have a deal to the president signs, obviously the incoming president can make his own decision. not only that, but congress authorized the president to decertify said the president is acting entirely within his rights. sure it sends a message to north korea and others that when only the president signed the deal, you can't count on it continuing the nature of our constitutional system. he wanted to continue? make a treaty. as the framers of our constitution intended. >> was certainly seen a lot of executive orders, memoranda, positions on the part of this president, barack obama and i'm just wondering, you know, obviously everyone prefers other solution by writ of a pain to do this. it doesn't show any sign, maybe
1:44 pm
the polarized political environment of changing. on that aspect alone whether it's a republican president doing it, does that worry you? >> of course that worries me. the framers never intended for the president himself to act as a super legislator. the president was supposed to simply administer laws enacted by congress, but now we see presidential authority all over the place, whether it be in immigration, atomic energy, so many areas for the president legislates. i was not the intent of the framers of the constitution and it comes back to bite you. what the president can do alone, the next president can undo alone. that's why we have a system of treaties from a two thirds approval of the senate and a whole range of protections before we get ourselves into treaties that are undoable. neil: already coming thank you very much. alan dershowitz, best-selling author, harvard professor. this week sometime today we will officially move to do what alan

some say is the political squabbling over this dreamer thing and whether it's that is part of that he wants to make sure it all gets filled. democrats are saying no and you know how that goes. real clear politics reporter caitlin healy burns on what's happening with this drama. where does it go? >> interestingly enough the white house released a rollout of their policy on this. they want a wall in other things for making the deal on dreamers. when he was talking to nancy and chuck and chuck and nancy as he calls them about a deal with democrats come he threw a lot of republicans for a loop. we wanted to attach this is something. he also took a lot of criticism from some base alliance supporters for seeming to make this deal. democrats are not going to go for it. they said that in the beginning
1:51 pm
and we also see when it comes to the budget they should attach the wall to trump has backed away from it. he hasn't really -- i think that they want something in exchange. they like the idea of border security, but it speaks more broadly to this idea of getting something done as it pertains to immigration. we will see kind of how this moves forward. remember, the time is running out. they have until february before daca recipients are no longer. this affects real people. neil: this started with president obama. he was criticizing congress for not act me on this anyone's something to secure to be punished or shipped back. the president kind of extended this, but wanted it resolved one way or another. where do you see it resolved?
1:52 pm
>> he wanted congress -- with a kind of kick it over to congress come he said get this done, but then said if not we will make some sort of deal. that kind of pulls the deadline away from lawmakers and as you know well, and they need a deadline and they go right up to it. this kind of legislation they are going to need 60 votes in the senate. they can't just do this through. neil: or remember there's no way on a wall, maybe there is something mixing the wall with other things. >> or maybe some border security elements producing the president on tax reform really trying to network with democrats from states that he won. on the issue of immigration, democrats are really holding the line here. it's going to be very difficult to get them to can be done much, especially since their base of supporters is a very emotional
1:53 pm
issue for a lot of people can do during a lot of young people. neil: it's certainly a good issue for democrats. let me mention the tax thing. also getting democratic vote. i've been looking at this thinking the idea of going after the rich and throwing out the possibility of a higher rate than 35% is a way to win over democratic vote. i don't know if that will win over democrats can especially when he could be losing republican votes. >> there's a lot of them here because they don't really have final piece of legislation. we have the broader outline the principles, so a lot of democrats are saying i'm just going to wait to see what this actually looks like. there's a lot of concern about how this will be paid for. you party scene from people like rand paul. neil: i am taking the lead.

to say bob corker is going to see about. so then you've got to depend on those democratic vote. joe manchin a west virginia has r.d. sat out as it can now would be a note from him. >> it really depends on what this looks like. just establishing relationships with the senators is not going to be enough. we have seen that democrats especially, the more vulnerable ones haven't really shown much fear of this president, which is very interesting. we kind of thought at the beginning that people from north dakota, west virginia, indiana, may be more inclined to work with the president because their base of support will depend on that next year. but on health care and other issues we didn't see them crossover the threshold it remains to be seen on tax reform, but they have little to lose at this point by saying they will work with the president. neil: real quick, what do you make of it? someone is not telling the truth. the bottom line is i will say
1:55 pm
this is not helping the presidents cause to get at least his team in place. spinnaker talked to a lot of republicans who say where she was treating democrats certainly. the corporate thing is significant because he's chairman of the foreign relations committee. yes he's critical of a republican president, but what message does that send abroad at this time that we are dealing with very important issues on north korea. dream to do you believe he wanted the secretary of state? >> corker was an earlier supported in some of his colleagues to the president. he campaigned with him when many of his colleagues withdrew their support. neil: but he also focused the things he liked, things he didn't mind. >> which is why his dissent is important. this is someone who gave trump a chance unlike a lot of his colleagues and now he is saying we've kind of gone too far. to your point, tried to
1:56 pm
cultivate support among your own senators is already difficult task beauties retiring and has nothing to lose at this point. >> i was thinking about that. healthy and loving. more after this.
