tv   After the Bell  FOX Business  October 16, 2017 4:00pm-5:00pm EDT

4:00 pm
at 40. think if you waited 28 years to get half your money back. having time, sensible behavior will always be the biggest risk to down-sized underperformance. having a plan is more important. [closing bell rings] liz: ron carson, good to see you. all-time record. up 83 points. that is it for the claman countdown. david: we're only 30, 40 points away from 23,000. we told you election night. take it out of gold and put it into the stock market can. good way to start the week. i'm david asman. melissa: i'm melissa francis. this is "after the bell." we have more on the new market records. first here is what else we're covering in the very busy hour ahead. despite what you heard we have never been closer. president trump setting record straight on his relationship with senate majority leader mitch mcconnell. details of the president's impromptu media conference in the rose guarden on tax reform,
4:01 pm
health care and well, pretty much everything else. plus, members of the trump administration now saying they want to keep america in the iran nuclear deal, not walk away. what does that mean? colonel oliver north sounds off. analysts expecting a strong quarter for netflix. are customers still flocking to the streaming giant despite prices going up? we'll find out any moment. david: a lot of competition in the field. meanwhile, keep our eyes on the good news here. stocks keep on climbing. new records for dow, s&p and nasdaq. president trump touting the record rally in a tweet today, saying the u.s. gained more than $5.2 trillion in stock market value since election day. also, record business enthusiasm. nicole petallides at the stock exchange, ground zero for enthusiasm. what is bringing it up today? >> it is pretty amazing. don't forget when donald trump tweeted fox business "after the bell." i saw that tweet.
4:02 pm
we're up 84 points. we ran the market up today. financials, materials, energy helped lead the way. records across the board, the nasdaq, s&p. we're watching for dow 23,000. we're closing less than 50 points away. some movers today that we watched came under pressure. nordstrom dropped to lowest level in five months of the nordstrom family is trying to make an attempt to move this one to the private sector, bring this one private. but in fact, you did see it drop 5% by end of the day. they had different you'lls arranging debt financing ahead of the key holiday shopping season. so that idea sort of, hit the fan and look, the stock sold off. we watched tesla on the move. there were reports that there were firings, dismissals, 400 to 700 people reportedly. they did acknowledge they did fire people. they didn't say how many, but said it was because of performance. that stock drop 1.5%.
4:03 pm
the big picture they're trying to get the model 3s out which have been missing estimates. >> absolutely. david: not a bad day. looked like everybody was united on the president's agenda today. president trump meeting with senate majority leader mitch mcconnell. that was earlier today. the pair insises that their relationship is quote, better than ever. fox business's blake burman at the white house with details. hard to keep track, this story moves every day. we get a new tweet a new angle. today was a kind of a surprise. reporter: kind of like nothing to see here moment with president and mitch mcconnell. everything is all good calling impromptu press conference in the white house, in the rose garden earlier today. we got a bit of news, david, with it, as it relates to tax reform and timeline. there has been a sliding scale over the last several months when tax reform might happen. earlier today, standing alongside mitch mcconnell, in the rose garden the president cited past challenges and talked about tax reform in 2017, as an
4:04 pm
if. >> i would like very much to see it be done this year. so we won't go a step further. if we get it done, that is a great achievement. don't forget it took years for reagan administration to get taxes done. i've been here nine months a little more than nine months. reporter: mcconnell said the goal was to get it done this year. however over in the house, speaker paul ryan gave an interview with milwaukee tv station, he had a much more aggressive timeline. he said there will be a bill on the president's desk come december, couple months out in 2017. whatever happens, david, congress will have their say. president made it clear at separate high-profile event, gathering with members of his cabinet at the white house, he feels let down by the republican-controlled senate because of their failure to repeal and replace obamacare. look how president trump placed that earlier today. >> i have great relationships
4:05 pm
with actually many senator, in particular with most republican senators but we're not getting the job done and i'm not going to blame myself, i will honest. they are not getting the job done. reporter: back to tax reform, i asked the president about what is up for negotiations right now? as you know last week he talked about there were certain modifications to it. gary cone today, said as well, that there are certain things up for negotiations. the president told me they are making what he sees as quote, unquote, minor adjustments right now. the text of all of this still very much being sculpted away. david. david: i like the phrase, there will be tax cuts, better than there might be or buts. but what you're looking at right now is marine one. the president is leaving joint base andrews or just arriving at joint base andrews. he is going down to fund-raiser down south. we'll monitor that as well. melissa. melissa: let's bring in today's
4:06 pm
panel. dan henninger, "wall street journal," fox news contributor, liz peek, "fiscal times" and adam lashinsky from fortune, a fox news contributor as well. dan, i will start with you, i don't like it when mitch mcconnell says it is his foal -- goal to get tax reform. that is management speak for here is what he is aiming for. >> that's right, melissa. it shouldn't be their goal. that is do-or-die for both of them. president trump understands that. amusing to be standing there with mitch mcconnell and saying we're in total agreement and never been closer. one day mr. trump is throwing members of congress off the train and pulling them back on the train. like one of those silent movies with harold hold where people are jumping on, jumping off. keep the eye on the ball here. midterm elections are coming up next year. members of congress will be
4:07 pm
focusing on that at some point. you want to get taxes done before they go out to campaign for re-election. melissa: adam that is rorschach statement, we've never been closer? well, we've never been closer. we're a mile part but god knows we've never been closer. >> that may be a perfectly accurate statement given they have never been anywhere close. melissa: right. >> fact they have never been closer. more than mildly amusing. the president declines to blame himself, not unlike any other president. this is a president who never blamed himself for anything. but and i think that is relevant point here. remember the white house put out a thin framework of tax cuts for tax reform. if they were more serious they would have put out far more than that. they would be leading far more than they are. that is my perspective. melissa: i don't know about that i don't know about that. liz, the president said before he blamed himself for trusting congressman and the senate to help himself out. there you go no that's right.
4:08 pm
i think actually the president has gone very far in trying to forward this mission of tax reform. he is out there talking to the country repeatedly. his people after all crafted this framework. and yes, it isn't totally filled in. but if you had delivered to congress a totally filled in map where he wanted to go, all you would have seen was tremendous pushback. melissa: people crying. >> congress has flexibility. they will get this done. stand by. melissa: go ahead, david. david: president trump getting on air force one. he is on his way to a fund-raiser down south in south carolina. we'll keep that picture in a box. but taking aim at corporate welfare. >> grave very train ended the day i knocked out the insurance companies money which was last week. hundreds of millions of dollars a month handed to the insurance companies for very little reason, believe me. i want the money to go to the
4:09 pm
people. david: actually, if you look at insurance stocks, they have gone straight up since obamacare went into law. so, dan was this corporate welfare? >> to some extent it was, david. i mean insurance industry was onboard for obamacare, the idea being more people with be mandated into the exchanges, therefore they would have more people buying their insurance. well, people refused to be forced into those exchanges. they paid penalties instead. now the insurance companies are wailing when trump pulls back their subsidy and tells congress you want to make this subsidy legal that is up to you. we'll go forward to see whether democrats and republicans can work out a compromise over subsidizing these insurance companies. >> liz, when the president says he wants the money to quote, go to the people, what exactly does that mean? would he have it go in form of vouchers rather to insurance companies or what? >> what he is talking about, to see average rates for average
4:10 pm
american families come down. i saw a study, the american families are finding lowest price obamacare program unaffordable. statistically they can't afford it. look, the program is not working. i went back and looked at insurance companies, some biggest stocks out there since 2010. they're up to five to six times while the market has about doubled. that is a huge gain. as dan says, there is just a bigger pool of money directed there. david: it puts democrats in an awkward position because they have to certain extent be defending corporate welfare. >> respectfully this isn't about whether or not it is call corporate welfare. of course it is. the question is, is it good policy and did it get more people insured? so, dan's telling half the story when he says that some people are paying the penalty. many millions of other people have insurance that they didn't have before. that is was, should a policy debate. david: but the point is, you, okay you can have insurance and
4:11 pm
not be able to afford it. i mean you have deductibles up so high, some cases $12,000, that is beyond the reach of a lot of middle americans, right? >> all the more -- david: hold on a second, dan. go ahead. >> sorry. >> keep in mind, adam, to pay premiums obama administration executed the subsidies which were declared by a federal court to have been illegal. so you have got these basically illegal subsidies. david: that is a good point. >> they are sitting out there as a primary prop to the exchanges right now and as i was suggesting earlier, it is up to congress and democrats in congress make the subsidies legal if they wish to. david: hold on a second. netflix earnings came out. nicole, what are they? >> reading through these, david, the key now, netflix is trading up 7-dollars. it started out to the downside, moving higher in last couple minutes. 2.208. that would be all-time highs.
4:12 pm
come numbers coming out here, total net streams ads, 6.2 million. that means the 6.9 million. 658,000 versus 77 four thousand. international net dreaming bet the estimate there. looks like they're beating across the board. revenue for the third quarter, got all these headlines from bloomberg as well. we'll double-check these. big picture you're seeing to the upside. netflix, third quarter revenue coming in 2.99 billion, that beating the estimates of 2.97 billion. i'm also giving you an outlook view going forward for netflix. netflix fourth quarter subscriber view, matches the estimate and that's key. you have to at least have in line or a beat. on the third quarter, for the, the subscribers, they beat the estimates. so the view is right in line and they beat on the estimates for
4:13 pm
the third quarter, at least we're breaking it down. revenue looks like a beat. subscribers look like a beat. but again they're breaking right now. we'll bring you more as it develops. back to you guys. melissa: nicole, thank you so much. adam, let me go back to you. so they said 4.4 million net subscribers. there were whispers that number could be as high as 4.5. is that -- i don't want to poke holes in this, but what do you think of that number? >> well, without coming on the specific number which i'm hearing for first time as well, the key for netflix for years they were surprisingly u.s. oriented with just a few countries outside of the united states. now they're declaring the rest of the world their target ground and it looks like they're succeeding which is why i think investor are inthese as tick. melissa: dan, let me ask you, they beat on revenue. the question, they have all this must-see original content. i showed netflix to my dad for
4:14 pm
first time, i think it blew his mind. not to discourage him from watching cable right now which is very important but netflix as an add-on, dan, do you think prices as they go up, discourages some people but they have to pay for what they have now which is tremendous content? >> i don't think prices discourage people. say you're paying $100 a month for cable, a long way you have to go before paying for netflix. there is tremendous ocean of product to look at. melissa: liz, the biggest change has been, in the beginning netflix, my kids would complain place they went for old stuff, old movies. they didn't have any good content, if you wanted a new movie, something fantastic go to itunes. i will say that dramatically changed from user experience. do they keep it going? hulu is making a huge play. >> this is the big new challenge. huge investment they're making. we're talking revenues but really issue down the road will be profitability sinking
4:15 pm
7 billion over the last number released on n.o.w. content formation. meanwhile they will be losing all the disney product -- melissa: right. that's a great point. >> which seems to me a real honey pot for them. the disney franchises go on and on and on. hugely successful. i think it's a little risky. we'll see. they think they can do it. they hired high-priced talent. that's what we don't know yet. melissa: that's a great point. thank you to all three of you. >> thank you. neil: a top republican senator a warning for his colleagues, pass tax reform or the party will be dead come election time. melissa: no kidding. david: former arkansas governor mike huckabee is here to respond. melissa: hillary clinton connecting the weinstein scandal to president trump. of course she did. we are hearing the clinton foundation will keep donations. we can't wait to hear what mike has to say about that one. david: dramatic rescue in
4:16 pm
california caught on camera. the wildfires are deadliest fire in california history. [shouting] >> sheriff's office! today. makes it easy to tell you apart. that, and i am better looking. i heard that. when it's time to get organized for retirement, it's time to get voya. ♪ ca♪ yes you can ♪ can i kick it? ♪ yes you can ♪ can i kick it? ♪ yes you can ♪ well i'm gone ♪ can i kick it? ♪ to all the people who can quest like a tribe does... ♪

[hero] i'll take my chances.
4:19 pm
>> come on. let me get her feet. let me get her feet. go, go, go, go! drive. drive, go. melissa: wow. david: it has been nonstop for those nice. incredible body cam footage from the sonoma county police department as they continue evacuation efforts in northern california. at least 40 people have died. 100,000 people have been
4:20 pm
evacuated, in eight different counties. what is now the deadliest wildfire in state history. hillary vaughn is in santa rosa with the latest. i guess the weather cooperated a little bit over the weekend, right, hillary? reporter: that's right, david. they actually made a lot of progress to contain these fires. now they're actually letting some people back into their neighborhoods but over40,000 still remain under mandatory evacuation. but thousands have been able to go back to their homes, or what is left of them this is just one scene of many in the area of homes burned to the ground. walking up the driveway, you see how urgent the evacuation process was. there are at least six vehicles, several motorcycles, left behind. as i walk up the path towards the front door, you can see there is really nothing left but the chimney. that is pretty similar for all the neighborhoods in this area. this is cul-de-sac. as we pan by, most chimneys
4:21 pm
represent homes that no longer exist. at least 5700 buildings, homes and businesses gone up in flames. total cost of damages so far is about 85 billion but the fires are not out yet. president trump addressed the devastation earlier this morning. >> we have fema, first-responders there. we have our military helping. it's very sad to watch how fast, how rapidly they move and how people are caught in their houses. i mean it is incredible thing, caught in their houses. so we have a lot of people helping government in california, and, made a lot of progress in the last couple of days. reporter: so far the two big fires these crews have been battling, tubbs and atlas fires are 70% contained. that is good news. the national weather service taken down all red flag alerts. they're expecting rain to head this way. hoping to get the fires
4:22 pm
completely contained. get the people back to their neighborhoods where they can assess the damage. i saw a fire crew a few houses down, battling a small smoldering fire still. not all of these in the neighborhood are out. they did tell me because there are 99 people still unaccounted for and missing, they're going home by home to check to see if there are any human remains left behind before they're letting neighbors get back into their homes. david: really looks like the landscape of a place been hit by nuclear bomb. just leveled, burned down to the ground. hillary, thank you very much. melissa. melissa: as california continues to battle these blazes one local winemaker says those in the hard-hit region are working together to help each other survive. joining me is cameron hughes, co-founder and vintner for cam ran hughes wine. thank you for joining us. tell me a little bit what is going on around you. i understand your property wasn't threatened but you have people who worked for you lost
4:23 pm
their homes. everybody knows someone or a lot of people? >> yeah. correct, melissa, thank you for having me on today. yeah, my own office is actually in san francisco but our larger organization is head quarted out of santa rosa quite luckily, most of the buildings associated with our companies have gone relatively unscathed. we've seen some vineyards scorched but the real devastating issue for our organization and the community at large has been the wild storm that just ripped through the coffee park neighborhood. we had quite a few employees lose their homes. melissa: i mean i talked to other people in the area who say similar things, that, the fire may have passed them. but they try to go back to save what is there. at same time, there are workers would be out picking this time of year and harvesting, they're trying to save their homes but there are ways the communities are coming together, isn't that right? and some people helping process
4:24 pm
grapes from other areas. >> absolutely. melissa: trying to salvage what's there. >> yeah. there is some certainly, immediate impact as grapes have to come in off the vine. we have heard some, some horrific fire stories, of frankly wineries helping out wineries and huge amounts volunteer putting in a lot of efforts to feed and clothe the community. you know, i heard stories, actually personally seen grape tonnage developed or rather delivered to some of our wineries where a winery couldn't process the fruit. their power was out or they couldn't get to the winery. melissa: yeah. >> to the end of helping out our community, we started up a gofundme page, that helps with, our employees and larger community that have lost their homes, that need really immediate help and cash. melissa: we talked about $85 billion in loss so far. this as a whole community where
4:25 pm
you talk about, when you try to move on, i mean, the erakat, we're looking at pictures right now. very hard to move around. so much has been destroyed by fire. how do you pick up to go on with what is left? what do you see happening here? >> well, look, i'm not personally, directly affected other than from our larger organization up in santa rosa that really is. i think that the rebuilding effort starts and begins now. for our employees, that means they need immediate help -- blankets and food side is taken care of. i think for the community at large, that lost their homes, to be frank, the winery community, sure, certainly some wineries have been lost, some vineyards have been scorched, quite frankly of how little damage overall was done. the real damage is to the people, the lives that were lost, neighborhoods that were just absolutely scorched as your
4:26 pm
other host said, looks like a nuclear bomb went off, those people need immediate help. folks don't realize you have to still pay the mortgage on your home. melissa: even when it is burned down. that is a great point. >> even when burned down. that is the help we're looking to provide. that will begin to rebuild the community and quite frankly get folks back to work. melissa: cameron hughes, thank you for coming on. we appreciate your time. >> my pleasure, thank you. david: god bless him. good man. melissa: pictures are astonishing. david: they still have to pay off the mortgage. unbelievable. white house pushing harder than ever for tax cuts, saying family incomes could increase thousands of dollars. how this could be major lifesaver for some retailers. that comes next. will the u.s. remain in the iran nuclear deal? why are some democrats actually now coming to the defense of iran? we're asking lieutenant colonel oliver north all about this coming up. copd makes it hard to breathe.

4:30 pm
david: the power of tax cuts. president trump's plan to lower the corporate tax rate to 20%, could boost average family's income by 4 to $9,000 each year according to new white house analysis, just one reason business and industry leaders uniting in open letter, urging congress to move on tax cuts now. david french is one of those leaders. national retail federation senior vice president for government relations. he joins me. david, do you buy white house analysis comes from white house economic advisors? >> we raise $300 billion a year in corporate tax revenue. if you cut the corporate tax rate down to 20%, that is as much as 130 to $140 billion shared by the american workforce. workers bear the share, bear the largest share of the tax burden, paid by corporations. so, corporate tax reform, means,
4:31 pm
more wages and more job creation for the american worker. david: of course not only is this cut in corporate rate. but also taking into the consideration the trillions of dollars overseas that could come back with a one-time tax. it will be a lot of money churning into the private sector. that is good. democrats say, hey, corporations could use the money to buy back stocks, raise the stock price, which would help all directors and managers of those companies, to which you say what? >> corporations are in business to grow. the best way to grow is to buy machinery, to employ more workers and expand their business, by investing in the business. investment in the business will create more jobs and lead to higher wages. david: david, there are some conservatives who are concerned about the watering down of the tax proposal. it has changed since it was first announced back in april, by, mr. cohn and mr. mnuchin. it is now, the top corporate
4:32 pm
rate is now 20%. it was 15%, when it was first announced. we have a fourth bracket which may leave the tax bracket as 39% for the top rate. we have had a lot lower rates in recent history. the reagan rates, the top individual rate was 28%. the simpson bowls, they came out with a plan a few years ago, bipartisan plan. their top rate was only 25%. trump is now suggesting 39% which isn't much of a change for the top rate as it is. what do you think? >> i think a lot of details are going to have be written about it tax-writing committees. and, the number one goal i think for the tax writing committees is to pass a tax reform plan that can be permanent. in order to make it permanent they have to find a way -- david: nothing is permanent, david. let's be honest. nothing is permanent inside of the beltway. the '86 tax thing of ronald reagan was supposed to be
4:33 pm
permanent. that didn't last through the clinton administration. nothing is important. isn't it important to get rates down as much as you can right now? >> it is certainly valuable to get rates down as much as possible right now but in order to be predictable in the long run, we would like to see tax rates stable for the next 10 or 20 years until the next time we have, we can do corporate tax reform. david: well, good luck t would be great. everybody would like that, i just hope that the thing doesn't get so watered down there won't be much of a change. but any change to the lower side is probably good. david french, good to see you. thank you very much for being here appreciate it. >> thank you. david: melissa. melissa: breaking news, net exin up 2% after hours citing as original shows like the ratest season of "narcos" which was awesome. david: really? didn't see it. melissa: they will announce
4:34 pm
existing members of price adjustments, over rolling basis for next few months. i'm looking forward to that. david: not. melissa: not really. david: fallout from the scandal rocking hollywood. hillary clinton is connecting the harvey weinstein controversy to president trump. melissa: lindsey graham says republicans must pass tax reform or prepare for a beating at ballot box. former arkansas governor mike hub bee sounds off next -- huckabee.
4:35 pm

4:37 pm
serious allergic reactions can occur. now's your chance at completely clear skin. just ask your doctor about taltz.
4:38 pm
david: weinstein company is scrambling. they're now exploring a possible sale to equity firm colony capital. this coming a week after the company fired disgraced hollywood producer harvey weinstein for allegedly assaulting dozens of women. weinstein is meeting with his former company tomorrow. "tmz" is reporting that he is going to challenge his firing in front of the whole board. >> i would like to be there for that. david: that would be interesting. melissa: yeah. now hillary clinton is chiming in on the weinstein, perfect, chiming in, making it political bringing in president trump desperately attempting to make connections between the two. >> after all we have someone admitting to be sexual assaulter in oval office. >> three women brought on stage attacking trump and your husband, you dismissed them. >> that was litigated. that was subject of a huge investigation as you might recall in the late '90s. there were conclusions drawn and, that was clearly in the
4:39 pm
past. david: so is history. melissa: i don't even know, i just, i can't even believe she would go there. here now is former arkansas governor mike huckabee. also a fox news contributor. i'm speechless. you take it away. >> well, i'm almost speechless as well, but let's just, let's cover the facts here. when she says that all has been litigated in the past, actually that is a fair statement. bill clinton lost his law license. he paid $850 million to paula jones. there were still active suits going on dating back 35 years with president clinton. for her to act like, oh, that has all been disapproved. it wasn't disapproved. it was actually proved. now i got into a little bit of, i guess a media attacks this week for something i said on "fox & friends." i just want to mention, what i said was, that i don't recall that anybody has ever
4:40 pm
successfully proven anything donald trump has actually done. did he say some despicable things? yes. he admitted that he did. but there were a bunch of women who just before the election lined up and said he had done things. interestingly, not one of those cases went forward. everyone of them disappeared as soon as the election was over. you have to wonder about that. so i was shocked that hillary clinton went there. melissa: right. i think the point of it is not about president trump. if i were her, i wouldn't be wading into those waters. that is not, that is not going to be a good issue for her. as soon as she starts talking about that, you immediately think of bill clinton, has nothing to do with what president trump may or may not have done. she is the not right person to talk about that. look at tax reform. senator lindsey graham was asked if republicans will be able to get tax reform done. listen to his response? >> if we don't we're dead. if we don't cut taxes, don't eventually repeal and replace
4:41 pm
obamacare, we'll lose across the board in the house in 2018. all of my colleagues running in primaries in 2018, they will probably get beat and end of mitch mcconnell as we know. >> governor, that was certain. "cbs poll," 39%, 37%, supporters of republicans think other republicans are trying to you know, basically destroy everything he is trying to do. they say one thing to his face and trying to derail him. if this doesn't work out, they are dead. >> i totally agree. i think lindsey graham is spot on. i think he and every other republican ought to realize a whole lot more republicans and a whole lot more americans voted for president trump than voted for any of them. and they're going to have to at some point recognize that they weren't sent up there to obstruct this president. they were sent there to try to help him get done what they themselves have promised, for the 8 years that president obama was in office. now, they act more like
4:42 pm
democrats than the democrats do. melissa: yeah. it does same, maybe i'm wrong to be hopeful, there is a little bit more common ground on this one with tax reform and the economy. it feels a lot closer than health care, where there is so many divergent opinions what should be done. as politician, lawmaker, somebody who knows temperature of all these things, what do you think are the odds this time? >> well, it better be 100% and then i can give you other odds. 100% republicans will get the daylights knocked out of them in the next election. it will get worse, just because people are not going to put up with the obstruction. and the republicans need to quit arguing over the tiny minutia of the tax bill. i wish they would go ahead, i suggested this even to the president. instead of putting this all into one great big ball of tax packages, take them a la carte. melissa the reason i say that if you put it all in one package,
4:43 pm

her term is up in february. melissa: colin kaepernick taking on nfl the embattled former quarterback filing a grievance against nfl owners claiming collusion preventing him from getting another job. here from los angeles, william la jeunesse. what do we think of this one? >> start in the legal arena. kaepernick's success will be likely what evidence he uncovers that the owners colluded to keep him out of the league. he filed the grievance under the players contract, could pay him $36 million, twice his annual salary should he win. since he played, teams have chosen 39 quarterbacks. talent alone, but teams consider skill, character and popularity when hiring. >> i believe that colin kaepernick should have a job, but i also believe that the nfl owners are not colluding. he need as hail mary. i don't think they will be able to prove this i think this is

you continue to roll, the terror state of iran against the trump administration's refussal to recertify iran's adherence to the nuclear deal that they signed with the obama administration. do we have the sound bite? play the sound bite then i want to go to our guest. >> president trump's refusal to certify is a grave mistake that threatens america's security and our credibility at a very critical time. david: here now, you know, we have had a lot of segments, colonel north that is oliver north of course, today of you just don't know what to say, when you have an american politician siding with the terrorist government of iran over the united states government, what do you say? >> you say, was she paying attention last friday when the president stood up in front of all the cameras in the world and announced congress has 60 days to come up with amendments to replace the jcpoa or kerry deal.

no doubt the iranian deal is very bad idea. here is quick summary. one, there are some loopholes and sunset provisions, and blind spots, that the iranians can be in compliance by funding and working with the people's democratic republic of north korea on a nuclear weapons and icbm program. number two, there are no consequences for iranian non-compliance, the snap-back sanctions was ludicrous right from the start. david: there is another ludicrous thing which is to assume as the deal does, that they want to do their nuclear research for, i'm quoting from the deal, exclusively peaceful purposes. who believes that an oil-rich terror nation has exclusively peaceful purposes for developing nukes? >> well apparently nancy pelosi believes that. look it, the iaea, united nations international atomic energy agency, is responsible for inspecting iranian military
