3:00 pm
the wallaby hit me first, officer. never miss the five. set your dvr. "special report" is up next. this is "special report." we are awaiting president obama's news conference marking the conclusion. james rosen is at the white house with a preview. good evening. >> good evening. some of the most important players on the nuclear security that front such as russia and north korea had no presence at all. and even the president's emphasis on the early success of the iran nuclear deal is coming under challenge. >> posting the first nuclear summit in six years, president obama also convened a largely symbolic celebratory session. the same group that negotiated
3:01 pm
last year's nuclear deal. >> iran has installed two-thirds. iran has shipped 98% of its stockpile out. if iran were to cheat, the nuclear weapon has gone from two to three months to a year. >> since it took effect, it has sbegs identified its testing of ballistic missiles, fired a rocket. seized two u.s. navy boats and humiliated the soldiers on board and beefed up the military presence in yemen and syria. mr. obama said, critics warn it poses a long term danger. >> like the nuclear deal signed in the 1990s. another deeply flawed deal. iran was not invited. they boycotted the larger
3:02 pm
nuclear summit saying it was tilt against them. >> cooperation continues. >> president obama is beginning to see the benefits relief. the obama has all but confirmed that they will soon allow u.s. dollars. as a substitute for u.s. banks. >> so we won't give them access. >> to the u.s. dollar. or the u.s. financial -- >> the question, we are continuing to look at how we come my with the joint comprehensive plan of action to make sure iran gets relief under the nuclear portion while we keep pressure on iran on these other issues. >> the irony in this is that the treasury department still designates iran's financial system as a primary money launldering concerning. yet giving access to u.s. dollars, the united states would in essence be launching its own
3:03 pm
money laundering operation. >> thank you. we're told by the white house that the president is a few minutes behind. we'll take you this as soon as he come out. perhaps something was lost in the translaying but recently vladimir putin seemed to indicate a major withdrawal. are they said putin is actually bringing in more fire power. >> when a russian drone flew over syria after russia planes, some syrian observers were surprised. they thought the russians had pulled out of syria. that's what russian president vladimir putin promised last month. >> ier to military defense tomorrow on start pain part of our report. >> not so, according to the
3:04 pm
pentagon. they have sent, they are bringing their more advanced equipment to the battlefield. helicopters, in vehicles, fixtd wing aircraft as well. >> the u.s. military says none of the russian tanks, artillery or missile systems have been pulled out. nor a significant number of russian troops. >> they still retain significant capability. >> the russians are now bombing a town between palmyra and raqqah. >> nobody will get to raqqah any time soon. neither the russians nor the sbf. >> even more important than retaking raqqah, the penn and white house are focusing on killing the leader of isis, baghdadi. >> i want him to know we are hunting him and we will find him. just like we found his mentor.
3:05 pm
>> they have a training program that costs $500 million and produced a handful of trained rebels before being halted last fall. >> what we did the first time was try to pull full units. this time they promise not to fight the assad regime. >> jennifer griffin. thank you. >> he is there presumed dead. the son was targeted yesterday in somalia. he is being blame for planning and overseeing attacks resulting in the deaths of at least three american citizens. on the economic front, the unemployment rate increased from
3:06 pm
4.3 to 5%. the work force participation rate increased to 63%. the dow closed at near a four-month high today after gaining 108. the s&p 500 was up 13. the nasdaq finished ahead 45. for the week. the dow was up 1.6. the nasdaq finished ahead almost 3. in america's election headquarters, donald trump tries to stop the bleeding and hillary clinton tries to stop the momentum of her opponent. how she is letting the winning streak get to her a bit. trump takes a off from public events. >> indeed he has. and cruz and kasich were both in
3:07 pm
pennsylvania where kasich who prized himself on having a positive campaign slammed as a counter productive agitator. >> the problem is he has no record. his record is making everybody he works with upset. maybe he ought to talk about what he is for going forward. >> it was the fox business news poll has cruz up 10 over trump with kasich third. women back cruz over trump by 19 points. among very conservative voters, cruz leads by 36. and on wisconsin radio, amped up his attacks yesterday. >> donald is pathological. donald cannot discuss the issues and the substance. >> no doubt that donald trump is the kim kardashian presidential candidate. he sits on twitter and makes a lot of noise but he has no
3:08 pm
solutions to fixing the problem. >> trump will return to washington. he said he intends to keep his pledge to support the nominee notwithstanding his this comments this week to break it. he learned that breaking his pledge would cost hill his south carolina delegates under that state's rules and that it is run by the states and dherts write their own rules for allocation, not the rnc. whose chairman minced no words on the record last night. >> i'm not really worried about in regard to supporting the eventual nominee or the party. they've all agreed to it. they're not going to give the data and run to the nominee and tell me they won't support the party. >> trump folks said he would endorse another nominee and he couldn't rule out the possibility of running as a
3:09 pm
third party candidate. >> i'm going to see how i was treated. trump is not going tonight. sarah palin is standing in in his place. >> thank you. we'll head live to hear president obama. >> we have made significant meaningful progress in securing the world's nuclear materials so that it never falls into the hands of terrorists. and i want to take a few moments and step back and lay out what we have accomplished. together with japan's announcement, we have now removed or security all the highly enriched uranium and plutonium from 50 facilities in 30 countries. more than 3.8 tons, which is more than enough to create 150
3:10 pm
nuclear weapons. that's material that will never fall into the hands of terrorists. 14 nations and taiwan. from libya and turkey and serbia and vietnam have now written themselves entirely of highly enriched uranium and plutonium. i want to point out that successfully removing all of ukraine's enriched there uranium men it was not made even more dangerous by the presence of these materials. as of today, south america, an entire continent is completely free of these dangerous materials. when pole andy removes theirs, central europe will be free of them as well. when indonesia completes its work this year, so will all of southeast asia. in other words, as terrorists and criminal gangs and arms
3:11 pm
merry chants look around for deadly ingredients, that region of the world is off limits. we've made important progress in the united states as well. in addition to the new steps i've announced, we've improved nuclear security and training. we've consolidated. it would be enough for $5,500 nuclear weapons. working with russia we're on track to eliminate enough russian highly enrichard are uranium. more specifically as a result of the summit, every single one of the more than 50 nations represented here have taken concrete steps to enhance security at the nuclear satellites and storage sites. that includes security, stronger
3:12 pm
regulations, abiding by international guide lines, greater transparency and international peer reviews. 50 new centers have been promoted to share best practices. and as part of our work today we greed keep strengthening our defenses against cyber attacks. we bowl stird international efforts for smuggling. the security initiative has grown to more than 100 nations including regular exercises to improve our collective ability to interaddict shipments. the united states and partner companies with detection equipment at more than they hunt border crossings, airports and ports. and we are developing new mobile detection systems as well. and finally, we've strengthens the partnership that's are the foundation for so many of our efforts.
3:13 pm
so we've made significant progress and every one involved in our work. especially those who have done it for years. nevertheless, our work is by no means finished. there is still a great deal of radioactive. nuclear arsenals are expanding in some countries with more small tactical nuclear weapons which could be at risk of theft. and one of the central goals of this summit was how do we build on the work that's been done so we have the international architecture that can continue the efforts even though this is the last one. even if this is the last of the leader level sults, we continued
3:14 pm
to lead through the united nations, the atomic energy agency and inpole to carry on the work and to provide the support that is needed to continue this nation. we will have a contact group for more than 30 countries who will meet regularly to support the keep driving progress for years to come. there was widespread agreement that defeating groups like isil requires more information sharing. everybody understands the urgency and what has happened in brussels and turnikey and so ma other countries around the world. as a consequence, jim clapper is continuing to engage with intelligence leaders from annul of our european partners on deepening cooperation. and today i asked all the
3:15 pm
nations envolved for help to share within and among our nations to prevent all manner of terrorist attacks. especially those that might involve weapons of mass destruction. in closing i want to say that preventing nuclear terrorism is one part of the broader agenda that i outlined seven years ago. stopping nuclear weapons and seeking a world without them. the reason today is there is been no shortage of analysis on whether we've cleveland our vision and i am the first to acknowledge the great deal of work that remains from negotiating further reductions with russia to dealing with north korea's nuclear program. as i indicated in prague, realizing our vision will not happen quickly and perhaps will not happen in my lifetime but we've begun. the united states and nuclear
3:16 pm
arsenals are on track to be lowest they've been in six deck it a. in an historic deal we've pre vend the spread of nuclear weapons to iran. an international fuel bank that is being fwoilt promote civil nuclear cooperation. so i'm extremely proud of our effort across the board. we're keel pushing forward wherever we can. i hope the administrations will get us to the day when the threat will no longer hang over the heads of our children and grandchildren. i'll take a few questions. i'll start with roberta. >> i want to ask about iran. three weeks ago the iran supreme leader complained his country is not getting actual business deals since the nuclear agreement. and nonu.s. company are saying it is very hard or sometime
3:17 pm
impossible to do much business with iran without at some point accessing the u.s. financial system to do u.s. dollar denominated transactions. so my question is are you considering allowing such transactions? if so, is that not a betrayal of your shurnls that's most u.s. sanctions would take place? >> that's not actually the position we're taking. so let me say broadly. that so long as iran is carrying out its end of the bargain, we think it is important for the world community the carry out the their, they have in fact followed the implementation phelps is were laid out. and as a consequence, sanctions related to the nuclear program
3:18 pm
have been brought down. part of the challenge that they face is that companies haven't been doing business there for a long time. and they need to get comfortable with the prospects of this deal holding. one of the things that secretary lew and his counter parts in the p5 plus 1 and elsewhere are doing is provided clarity to businesses about what transactions are allowed. it will take time over the next several months for companies and their legal departments to feel confident that there may not be risks if they to business with iran. so we'll work with them to eighth. it is not necessary that we take approach of them dollar
3:19 pm
transactions. it is possible to work through european financial institutions as well. but there will need to be continued clarification provided to businesses in order to, for deal flows to begin. what i would say is also important is iran's own behavior in generating confidence that iran is a safe place to do business. in a deal like this, my first priority. my first concern was making sure we got their nuclear program stopped. and material they already had that would give them a very short breakout capacity, that was shipped out. that has happened. and i always am i could not promise that iran would take advantage of this window to reenter the international community.
3:20 pm
iran so far has followed letter of the agreement, but the spirit. agreement involves iran also sending signals to the world community and businesses that it will not be engaging in a range of provocative actions that might scare business off. when they launch ballistic missiles with slogans calling for the destruction of israel, that makes businesses nervous. there's some geopolitical risk that is heightened when that takes place. when they sent missiles to hezbollah, that gets businesses nervous. so part of what i hope happens, we have a responsibility to provide clarity about the rules that govern so that randle can in fact benefit, iran can benefit from the there situation.
3:21 pm
iran has to understand what others understand. businesses want to go where they feel safe whefrl they don't see massive controversy. where they can be confident that transactions will operate normally. and that is an adjustment that iran will have to make as well. and frankly, within iran i suspect there are different views in the same way there are hard liners in the united states. even after we certified the deal is working, even after our intelligence team, our israeli intelligence team say this is a game changer, are still opposed to the deal on principle. there are hard liners in iran who don't want to see iran open itself up to the broader world community.
3:22 pm
and are doing thing to undermine the deal. so those who see it more broadly, we want to make sure that over time, they're in a position to realize those benefits. david? >> thank you, mr. president. as you mentioned at the beginning of your remarks, you just finished a working session with 50 world leaders about combatting terrorism in groups like the islamic state. i wanted to ask but the strategies your administration is using in that effort. in the past several week your administration has killed well over 200 people in air strikes. how can you be certain all the people killed posed an imminent threat to the united states? why is the united states now killing scores of people at a time rather than ehim naigt individuals in very targeted strikes?
3:23 pm
thank you. >> we have constructed a fairly rigid and vigorous set of criteria for us evaluating the intelligence we received about isil. where it might be operating, where al qaeda is operating. these guide ligs involve a whole range of agencies. consuling extensively. and are then checked, double checked, triple checked before there actions are taken. for the most part our actions are directed at high value targets in the countries that you just described. outside of the theater of iraq and syria flx some cases what we're seeing are camps, that
3:24 pm
after long periods of monitoring becomes clear are involved in and directing plots that could do the united states harm or are supporting isil activities elsewhere in the world. if after a large period of observation we are seeing that in fact explosive materials are being loaded on to trucks and individuals are engaging in there training and small arms and there are some of those individuals who are identified as couriers for isil or al qaeda, then based on those evaluations, a strike will be taken. but what we have been very cautious about is making sure that we are not taking strikes
3:25 pm
in situations where for example we think there is the presence of women or children. or if in a normally populated area. recently we laid out the criteria we're making these decisions. we declassified many elements of this. we are going to be putting forward and trying to institutionalize on a regular basis how we make these analysis. in terms of the broader debate that's taken place, i think in the past there's been legitimate criticism that the architecture, the legal architecture around the use of drone strikes or other kenettic strikes, and there is no doubt that civilians
3:26 pm
were killed that should not have been. i think over the last several years we have worked very hard to avoid and prevent those kinds of tragedies from taking place. in situations of war, we had to take responsibility when we're not acting appropriately. or where we just made mistakes even with the best of intentions. that's what we're going to try to do. what i can say with great confidence, our operating procedures are as rigorous as they have ever been. and there is a constant evaluation of what we do. carol lee? >> thank you, mr. president. you've spent seven years now working on nonproliferation issues. and you said in your opening
3:27 pm
remarks that you hope the future administrations do the same and make it a priority. this week one of the republican front-runner to replace you said that perhaps north and south korea and japan should have nuclear weapons and wouldn't rule out using nuclear weapons in europe. did that come up at the summit and generally what message does it send when a major party candidate is articulating such a reversal in u.s. foreign policy? and also, who did you vote for in the democratic primary? >> well, first, it is a secret ballot, isn't it? i'm not going to tell you now. what do the statements tell us? they tell us the person who made the statements doesn't know much about foreign policy or nuclear
3:28 pm
policy or the korean peninsula or the world generally. it came up on the side lines. i've said before people pay attention to american elections. what we do is really important to the rest of the world. and even in those countries that are used to a carnival atmosphere in their own politics want sobriety and clarity when it come to u.s. elections. because they understand the president of the united states needs to know what's going on around the world and has to put in place the kinds of policies that lead not only to our security and prosperity but will have an impact on everybody
3:29 pm
else's security and prosperity. our alliance with japan and the republic of korea is one of the cornerstones of our presence in the asia pacific region. it has underwritten the peace and prosperity of that region it has been an enormous boone to american commerce. american influence and it has prevented the possibility of a nuclear escalation and conflict between countries that in the past and throughout history have been engaged in hugely destructive conflicts and controversies. so you don't mess with that.
3:30 pm
it is an investment that rests on the sacrifices that our men and women made back in world war ii. when they were fighting throughout the pacific. it is because of their sacrifices and the wisdom that american foreign policy makers showed after world war ii that we've been able to avoid catastrophe in those regions. and we don't want somebody in the oval office who doesn't recognize how important that is. andrew? >> thank you, mr. president. yesterday you met with the president of turkey after some fairly ugly scenes at the brookings institution. do you consider him an authoritarian? >> turkey is an extraordinarily important partner in our fight
3:31 pm
against isil. it is a country with whom we have a long and strategic relationship with. and read that erdojan is one that we've had a productive partnership. what is also true, and i have expressed this to him directly. it is no secret that some trends within turkey that i've been troubled with. i'm a strong believer in freedom of the press. i'm a strong believer in freedom of religion. i'm a strong believer in rule of law and democracy. and there is no doubt that read that erdogan has repeatedly been
3:32 pm
elected through a democratic process. but i think the approach that they've been taking toward press is one that could lead turkey down a path that would be very troubling. we are going to continue to advise them. and i've said to him, to remind him, that he came into office with a promise of democracy and turkey has been historically a country in which deep islamic faith has lived side by side with modernity and increasing openness. and that's the legacy she pursue rather than a strategy which is oppression of information and
3:33 pm
shutting down democratic debate. having said that, i want to emphasize the degree to which their cooperation has been critical on a whole range of international and regional issues. and will continue to be. and so as is true with a lot of our friends and partners, we work with them. we cooperate with them. we are appreciative of their efforts. and there are going to be differences. and where there are differences, we will say so. and that's what i tried to do here. i'll take one last question. this young lady. >> thank you. what do you think? >> where are you from? >> i am from -- the nuclear
3:34 pm
securities issue. >> well, like many countries that participated have already taken a number of steps. there are some countries that have highly enriched uranium that they agreed to get rid of. there are others with nuclear facilities but don't have the best security practices. they have adopted better security practices. there are countries that could potentially be transit points for the smuggling of nuclear materials. so they've work with us on border patrols and protection.
3:35 pm
and because of the location, it is a critical partner in this process. i should point out that although the focus of the summit has been on securing nuclear materials and making sure they don't fall into the hands of terrorists, the relationships, the information sharing, the stitching together of law enforcement, international law enforcement, intelligence, military agencies, both within countries and between countries this set of relationships internationally will be useful. not just for nuclear material but it is useful in preventing terrorism generally. it is useful in identifying threats of kept weapons or
3:36 pm
biological weapons. one of the clear messages coming out of this summit and our experiences over the last seven years is an increasing awareness that some of the most important threats that we face are trans national threats. so we are slowly developing a web of relationships around the world that allow us to match and keep up with the trans national organizations that all too often are involved in terrorist activity, criminal activity, human trafficking, a whole range of issues that can ultimately do our citizens harm. and seeing the strengthening of these institutions will be one of the most important parts of the process. mark, since you had your hand
3:37 pm
up, i'll call on you. one last one. >> thank you. i wanted to ask about nuclear policy. through the past seven years, when you pushed to rid the world of nuclear materials and fissile materials, the industry has worked the improve miniaturization of warheads. while it is not developed new classes of cruise missiles and warheads, it has worked on the technology. and that has prompted some in russia and china to say we need to keep up. are you concerned that what we've done in the united states have undermined some of the progress you've made on the prevention side? >> i think it is a legitimate question and i am concerned. here's the balance that we've had to strike. we have a nuclear stockpile. we have to make sure it is safe
3:38 pm
and reliable. and after the there s.t.a.r.t. treaty with russia, we have brought down the number of weapons that are active. but we have to make sure that they're up to date. that their command and control systems that might have been developed a while ago are up to snuff given all the technology that has changed since that time. and we have to make sure that our deternls continues to work. so even as we brought down the number of weapons that we have, i've wanted to make sure that what we do retain, functions. that it is not subject to a
3:39 pm
cyber intrusion. that there's sufficient confidence in the system that we don't create destabilizing activity. my preference is that would it bring down further our nuclear arsenal. and after we completed s.t.a.r.t. 2, i approach the russians, our team approached the russians in terms of looking at the next phase of arms reductions. because there putin came into power, or returned to his office as president, because of the vision that he's been pursuing of emphasizing military might over development inside of russia, and diverse identifying the economy, we have not seen the kind of progress that i would have hoped for with
3:40 pm
russia. the good news is that the possibilities of progress remain. we are abiding by s.t.a.r.t. 2, we are seeing implementation. although we are not likely to see further reductions during my presidency, my hope is that we have built the mechanisms and systems of verification and so forth that will allow us to continue to reduce them in the future. we do have to guard against in the interim ramping up new and more deadly and more effective systems that end up leading to a whole new escalation of the arms race. and in our modernization plan, i tried to strike the balance, making sure the triad and our
3:41 pm
systems work properly. that they're effective but also to make sure that we are leaving the door open to further reductions in the future. but one of the challenges we'll have is that it is very difficult to see huge reductions in our nuclear arsenal. unless the united states and russia as the two largest are prepared to leave the way. the other area we need to see progress is pakistan and india, that sub continent. making sure as they develop military doctrines, that they are not continually moving in the wrong direction. we have to look at the korean peninsula. the dprk, north korea is in a whole different category.
3:42 pm
and poses the most immediate set of concerns for all of us. the once we are working end nationally to focus. on that's one of the reasons we had the tri-lateral meeting. thank you very much, everybody. have a good weekend. president obama at the nuclear securities conference wrapping up this summit with world leaders. the main focus there, about trying to keep nuclear material out of the hands of terrorists. but he answered a number of questions from reporters. we take every official news conference in its entirety. and we took this one as well. let's bring in our expanded panel. the senior politics writer for u.s. news and world report. author of sinclair's full measure. what did you hear out of there? >> i was struck by the
3:43 pm
president's discussion of iran. where he said they are following the letter of the law but acknowledged they are not following the spirit of the law and gave two examples. one, ballistic missile that's they're fighting with death to israel written on them. and the second was.he spirit of they said these make businesses nervous. my thoughts was should not they make all of us nervous? these are horrible things. it goes to show how the president and the administration decoupled iran's work on the nukes. the other thing was after he made those comments, he spoke at length about what the united states is doing to boost iran's economy outside of the letter of the deal. which i thought was again, pretty striking. giving iran every benefit of the doubt.
3:44 pm
at a conference dedicated. >> donald trump's name was mention, as in most things. and the president fielding again a question about what donald trump said this week. >> donald trump is the question of the moment. the question on everyone's mind. and he didn't really hit trump as hard as he had before. i thought it was interesting that he wouldn't talk about who he voted for. look at the conference. what are the accomplishments? he's had a bunch of them now. nuclear developments are a priority. he talked about china, about securing nuclear weapons. without russia there i think it is hard to get any big breakthrough on anything. they snubbed hill on the summit. they basically said we're not going to go there. and their involvement in syria, a major player in this. >> can i build on something
3:45 pm
steve said? my reflections ago little further. i'll speak for ordinary americans. i'm a little confused. nothing wrong hoping for the best and being pragmatic. but it seem that iran is a nuclear seeker and a terrorist state. iran was the largest sponsor of terror. and at the same time we're rewarding them and patting them on the back in some respects. they remain in all assessments from credible people actively he have day. and as an ordinary american, what is the strategy in the big picture? >> i was happy to hear the accomplishments. that the south americans are securing their nuclear materials. i've been up late nights unable sleep thinking about the south
3:46 pm
american proliferation. the president is operating in a world detached from ours. one of the main items he's done, the paris climate change conference. this conference. this is now the fourth of which has been a failure. the russians didn't show up so it was a failure to start with. and the cuba holiday. that's it. the world is on fire. brussels, paris, san bernardino. we have a rise of islamic radicalism. and as he says, transnational issues. that of course ordinary people, meaning ordinary americans, do not appreciate. none of us have the vision and the wisdom that he has. three days in which traffic was shut down in washington is a high price to pay for securing south american nuclear
3:47 pm
materials. >> next up, don't forget we'll take a special look at the state of the u.s. military. fox news reporting, rising threats, shrinking military. ♪ ♪ ♪

ruling out running as an independent third party candidate? are you ruling that out? >> look, i'm by far. >> it's a simple question. >> iimple.t thatq/z i'm by far the frontrunner as a3m=ñ republican. i want to run as a republican. i will beat hillary clinton. >> but if you don't get the nomination. >> we have to see how i was
3:52 pm
treated. very simple. >> donald trump talking to chris wallace. he will be on "fox news sunday" this weekendment all of the republican candidates basically have ripped up that pledge as we have reported. taking a look at the latest fbn poll last night in wisconsin. cruz with a 10 point lead you see the margin of error 3.5. if you look at the next poll, it's interesting. remember, scott walker has endorsed ted cruz. if walker was in the race in wisconsin, there is how it would play out. that's the question there. and it is friday. and even on this strange friday we head to a place called candidate casino. okay. republican side. steve, first to you. where do you put your bets? >> so ico( put my bets on the republican side a 5 for trump. 30 for cruz. $5 on an unknown can dad who emerges at the convention and i save $10 for a big glass of jordan cab. >> you have the sponsor, always. >> there is no sponsor. that's just what i felt like when ie1 was coming up with
3:53 pm
this was having a big glass of jordan cab. >> didn't feel like a beer day as it often does. look, i think trump going into wisconsin has been unwise attacking scott walker. he has attacked his budget reforms which wisconsin republicans like. successful. the numbers seeing suggest they were successful. and hitting for raising taxes is a strategy. >> i have 60 on trump, 30 on cruz. and 10 on kasich. look, i think this was the worst week for donald trump's campaign. not because of necessarily the events because he has weathered them before but because of what comes next. tuesday night he will lose the wisconsin primary most likely. that is going to allow the media to say his mistakes mattered. and then he has two week stretch where he will be under siege by the media, frankly, about whether his campaign is in collapse because he has two weeks until new york where there is time for another yet redemption story which he will probably win. this is going to be a rough
3:54 pm
and tumble two weeks. >> if he gets over 50%. he gets all 95 delegates in new york. if he doesn't, then it gets split between cruz and kasich and it becomes a lot tougher to get to that 1237 number. your bet, cheryl? >> regardless of how wisconsin turns out, all my money on trump. >> a black chip. we rarely see black chips here at this table. good to have you. you are a high roller. >> it's been a while since i was here. last time nobody was voting for trump except sharyl. all of it. >> again, we rarely see black chips. charles? >> it's nod advocacy, it's analysis. >> exactly. >> that's good to hear. 70 on trump which is a little bit below where i was last week. i think this is a trump slump, a minor one. cruz at 25. and now i was going to put the 5 on kasich, but i have tried wine, i tried whiskey,

i tried antidepressants and last week i tried opioids. i have only one choice left because the only alternative now is hemlock. i'm not quite prepared to take it. >> oh, man. >> he is only joking. it's all a big joke. >> not advocacy. >> just analysis. >> don't try this at home. >> okay. isdm there -- what is the percentage that we are going to a brokered convention? not brokered, contested convention? percentage right now? this is not chips. >> i think it's over auto%. i might put it somewhere at 70. >> no idea. pass. >> you pass. but you are block chip so you are probably at 12:3 12k3w4r-7 75%. they will try to could everything in their power to arrest this nomination if trump falls. >> that just seems like it's -- >> -- but if he doesn't get there, they will point to the rules and i think they are going to -- because this is about the future of the party. they think they are going to lose this election anyway.
