tv Sunday Morning Futures With Maria Bartiromo FOX News April 3, 2016 7:00am-8:01am PDT
finished in the early 1900s. old infrastructure. we'll have much more. keep it right here. developing story out of philadelphia as a deadly train crash kills two individuals. we'll see you next weekend. >> have a good day, everybody. good morning, battle for wisconsin in the final stages. badger state a pivotal stop on the road to the gop nomination. ted cruz and donald trump going at each other tooth and nail hoping that a win on tuesday can act as a spring board for their campaigns. and help them nail down the top spot on their party's ticket. welcome. i'm maria bartiromo, welcome to "sunday morning futures." as the fight plays out donald trump and ted cruz telling voters that victory is at hand. >> i think we're going win before we get to the convention. if we get to the convention the establishment politicians who want to protect their jobs and
paychecks and protect all of the different things like lobbyists and special interest, they don't like me. i used to be a part of the establishment. >> we're devoting our energy to earning the votes, winning the stakes and earning the delegates to win a majority before the convention. i'll tell you wisconsin will have a powerful voice in that. not just the 42 delegates here but all across the country. people are looking to this great state of wisconsin. >> and joining me right now is new york congressman peter king, a member of the homeland security committee. congressman, good to see you. >> always good to see you. >> i think it's interesting this is the reason we invited you on this afternoon. as we look ahead to tuesday, wisconsin, why are all the candidates in new yor this past week? you had ted cruz in new york. john kasich in new york. famous shot of him eating pizza. hillary clinton and bernie sanders in new york. trump has headquarters here in new york.
first let's talk about wisconsin and then i want to get your take on new york, obviously. what do you expect tuesday? >> right now it looks as if ted cruz will win in wisconsin. i'm not a ted cruz fan by any means but all the polling, all the momentum seems to be going his way in wisconsin. wisconsin has a different type of republican, they are conservative but also very practical and down to earth and i think they have been either turned off or become concerned by some of the things donald trump has been saying. not so much anti-trump but they have real concerns about him being our nominee for president. john kasich will make a better showing than people might think. he's from ohio. in many ways he represents more what wisconsin is like but he's getting a late start in wisconsin. ted cruz has a good ground game. looking at it from a distance i would say ted cruz can win by 10 points in wisconsin. >> how important is wisconsin, then, in the general scene? if ted cruz wins wisconsin what does that mean for his prospects
coming into the northeastern states which are right after that, like new york, pennsylvania, connecticut, congressman? >> i think the most impact it has as far as slowing donald trump down. if company have won wisconsin i think that would have really put him on the fast track to the nomination. if cruz does beat him and beat him convincingly in wisconsin it will raise doubt about donald trump and slow his momentum and then you have two weeks where basically no primaries or caucuses of any real significance between wisconsin and new york. so all the emphasis goes on new york. that's where kasich can make a move. cruz can slow trump down there's no great love for cruz either. trump has to show he's ready for primetime and for a guy who has been on television so much he really has not been ready for primetime. he has a lot of support. i think it was michael goodwin in his column he's letting down his own supporters by not being
prepared enough. you can't make to it the presidency without showing better knowledge. >> we know what his commentary has been recently, comments on women, abortion, muslims and then, of course, this morning there's an article out in the "the washington post" that trump gave an interview to. he said the economy very weak. that we're going to see a big sell off in the stock market and big recession coming. let me ask you about your own favorites here. for a little while i thought you were warming up to donald trump. and then he made those comments about jeb bush. you got very angry about that. i know you were supportive of marco rubio, very supportive. going into wisconsin and the other states, who are you backing now? are you basically expecting a contested convention? >> i think there might well be a contested convention. look i have nothing against donald trump. i thought the remarks he made about jeb bush and president bush, how he said he lied about iraq, how he knew 9/11 was
coming and did nothing about it. all of that was so wrong. that's what turned me against donald trump at that time. again, i would like him to get his act together and be a strong candidates. right now he's not showing it. i think we are on the way to a contested convention. john kasich has a lot much grassroots support and could do very well at the convention. for myself right now, listen, i did endorse marco rubio. he didn't make it. i don't want to keep jumping in and out. i'll keep watching. see where it goes. if there's a contested convention i'll have something to say then. >> there's nothing wrong with a contested convention. if he doesn't get if the 1237 votes that's the way it moves. you think john kasich could come all the way from behind and actually take it during this contested convention if that's how it plays out? >> i'm saying he could be viable because john kasich, again, donald trump if he flames out and doesn't make it and then you
have ted cruz, a lot of animosity in the republican party. if trump can't make it hard for a lot of people to go ted cruz. hard for the trump people to go cruz. again, donald trump, if he can get it together, if he can show more knowledge on foreign policy and on some key issues, i think the base, the emotional segment of the party definitely is for him but he's letting down his own supporters. if he can turn that around he would still be the favorite. >> let me ask you about terrorism and your thoughts on what we're seeing this morning. of course the first flight took off from the brussels airport as it is re-opening slowly with certainly a scaled back service. given what we know now and what took place in brussels, congressman and, of course, these new scares about the u.s. what should to be done in terms of isis, in terms of this new
reality that we all face? >> several thing. the european countries have to do better in sharing information. they have to take this more seriously. for years we couldn't even get them to cooperate in giving us the passenger manifests on planes coming from europe to the u.s. they thought we were overreacting. now it's hit home. british have been good. the other countries don't work closely enough together. they have to. they have to start sharing this information. number two we have to go after isis more aggressively. we have to go after them more aggressively in syria. also realizing now with these encrypted apps harder and harder to get signal intelligence or listen to what isis is planning. we need more intelligence on the ground and that means in our own country and european countries to have more of an undercover police presence. to have informers, to have people on the ground to be in the. muslim communities. that's where the threat is coming from.
98%, 99% muslims are good americans. but like with the italian mob you went into the neighborhoods. we have to put political correctness aside to get the intelligence. >> how worried are you about the u.s. seeing an attack imminently and including that, talk about new york for a mom. are we doing enough in new york given that we're seeing it in these big cities and paris and brussels. investigations are going on right now about people who want to join the fight, right? >> yes. throughout the country. i don't want to scare anyone. there are no imminent plots i'm aware of right now. u.s. is the number one target. win u.s. new york city and surrounding areas are clearly the number one terrorist target in the country today. that's why there's more than 1,000 new york city police officers working full time. they have their own counterterrorism taejs yintelli
unit. i have real issues bill de blasio campaigning and the new york city with civil liberties union were attacking the nypd for the surveillance work they were doing. i have confidence that bill bratton will do what needs to be done. he knows what he's doing. he's getting it done despite the politic ace round him. >> what do you expect in the next few weeks. we have the primaries coming to new york. important time for your state. >> it really is. this is the first time ever that new york has been important in a presidential race. usually by the time it comes to new york the race is already decided. i think right now it's going real test if donald trump doesn't win over 50% in new york that's really going to slow him down forgoing to the convention. over 50% he gets all the delegation. under 50s they get apportioned
out. on the democratic side i'm amazed that bernie sanders is running so close to hillary clinton. i mean the last poll, 40 points now only 12-point spread. if hillary clinton doesn't win new york big, again it shows bernie sanders is in it for the long haul and it shows her campaign has real issues. real problems. >> pretty extraordinary. congressman good to speak with you as always. thanks so much. congressman peter king. what does a contested convention look like? it is a real true possibility. we'll talk with the republican national committee and scott baio weighs in on donald trump and the establishment. stay with us as we look ahead this morning on "sunday morning futures."
we ship everything you atcan imagine.n, and everything we ship has something in common. whether it's expedited overnight... ...or shipped around the globe, ...it's handled by od employees who know that delivering freight... ...means delivering promises. od. helping the world keep promises. when i was sidelined with blood clots in my lung,h. it was serious. fortunately, my doctor had a game plan.
treatment with xarelto®. hey guys! hey, finally, somebody i can look up to... ...besides arnie. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there'on how xarelto®mation and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, i tried warfarin, but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto®. nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your door, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto®
if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto® is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto®... ...was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®.
>> welcome back. a contested convention could be in the future for the gop. that might spell trouble for donald trump in the next several months because on a second ballot delegates could break ranks with him and support another candidate. if trump can't reach the magic number of delegates needed to win the nomination john kasich be doubts ted cruz can either. >> cruz needs about 90% remaining delegates and when we head east, impossible. not going to happen. >> joining me right now is the communications director for the republican national committee. sean, good to see you again. welcome. >> thank you. good morning. >> i want to talk about the possibility of a contested convention. would you say more likely than not at this point? >> i think as each contest gets under way, unless as you stated ted cruz needs 88%, donald trump needs 55% of the remaining
delegates, we got wisconsin coming up and two weeks after that 95 delegates in new york. as we pass each of these subsequent contests and somebody fails to pick up the requisite number the odds of that open convention become higher. >> how does this work? if trump heads into the convention without that magic number of 1237, we're told already more than 100 delegates are poised to break with him on a second ballot, break against him according to interviews with dozens of delegates. one of the starkest examples of lack of support out of the 168 republican national committee members each of whom doubles as a convention delegate only one publicly supports trump. do you think once they get in the convention and we get to perhaps a second ballot delegates will start switching their minds because they can. >> what happens is as you've noted you need 1237 delegates to win. whoever hits that number first becomes our nominee.
so on the first ballot almost all of the delegates are bound. there are a few states where they are unbound and elected to vote their conscience or stated a particular cane. on the second ballot more of them become unbound and on third ballot but in a state like florida they are bound through three ballots. as each ballot goes you would see less and less unbound. that's where candidates, where the leg work comes in and these candidates need to be working -- the individuals that got elected and start talking about why they are the best candidate and why they deserve their support. this is part of the process. i think each of these campaigns is starting to work that system and learn who the delegates are that are is going run and get elected for those slots. but in most cases they are elected in the first and second ballot. that's where you will see campaigns focus their effort snoops which is why now you have candidates trying to lure as many folks as they can because of contested convention is now
looking more and more likely. >> well that's right. again, as you -- we've got right now we're about 1600 delegates through the process. 800 left to go. i think unless someone blows out in wisconsin and new york we're pretty much guaranteed to go to june 7th when you got 303 delegates on the ballot that day. this is going to go probably in all likelihood to june 7th and see if someone has got it. there's two scenarios. one somebody is short of the is 1237 but can make that up with the unbound delegates or two no one will have that magic number and then we go to this open convention where we go to a first or second round of balloting. >> we were just speaking with congressman peter king from new york and congressman king said look once we get into that contested convention it's anybody's to lose, anybody's to win. he basically made a prediction
that john kasich could come out from all the way from behind and be quite successful. is that even possible? >> of course it's possible. i think, again, as i mentioned, where a lot of these campaigns will spend a lot of time between now and the convention is having one on one conversations with the individuals that were elected as delegates by the grassroots voters, and try to talk to them about why they should stick with them through multiple rounds of voting. but that's going to be where these campaigns really show their depth. i think as congressman kasich mentioned on the democratic side you are seeing bernie sanders make a play keeping hillary clinton on the ropes. what will be really interesting on the other side of the aisle is if the big rumor going on in d.c. among democrats what happens if hillary clinton does get indicted, bernie sanders has amassed a pretty substantial amount of democrats and there's concerns among democrats that they end up with bernie sanders and super delegates which have
pledged to hillary clinton the unelected super delegate would find a way to draft joe biden or somebody else, elizabeth warren or somebody because they know they can't win with bernie sanders. i think if this indictment comes down on hillary clinton you'll see a lot of concern about what's going on the other side of the aisle. >> important points because we know the investigation from the fbi is now in its final stages where it may very well include and will include likely an interview with secretary clinton. very quickly here -- >> you brought it up in your interview with her. you brought it up in the interview with her. they are dismissive of it. there's a lot of concern among top ranking democrats in d.c. this possibility is very real and that would really hamper any idea of them being able to move forward with her as a nominee going out of their convention in philadelphia. so there's a lot of concern on the democratic side about how they move forward with a hillary clinton, how do they get somebody up whether it's joe biden or elizabeth warren and put them in place and use those
unelected super delegates to get around the will of the voters. >> i know you had a meeting with donald trump this week. all the headlines donald trump tries to make nice. did he tell you he wouldn't go for a third independent party? was it a good meeting? was he trying make nice with the rnc. >> he had a great meeting with the chairman. everybody on the party understands this that if we don't come out of cleveland unified that that's giving a leg up to the democrats. so a lot of what they are doing now is pose tour ituposturing. everyone knows we'll give the democrats a hand off if we don't come out of cleveland unified. so any talk of a third-party is bluster, a lot of talk. we as a party understand what's at stake. >> thanks so much. >> thanks. >> the u.s. economy posted a solid gain in jobs last month. the unemployment rate however did tick up. what is the true picture of the
economy? donald trump predicting recession. we'll break down the numbers as we look ahead on "sunday morning futures" next. you're here to buy a car. what would help is simply being able to recognize a fair price. truecar has pricing data on every make and model, so all you have to do is search for the car you want, there it is. now you're an expert in less than a minute. this is truecar.
welcome back. u.s. employers posted another solid month of hiring last month. 215,000 new jobs were added to the economy in the month of march. fueled by gains in construction, retail and health care. the unemployment rate ticking up to 5% last month largely due to more americans joining the workforce. where are we in this economy and global be market? joining us now to talk about it, mohamed el-erian, chief economic adviser and former pimco ceo. wonderful to have you on the program. welcome. i think we started the year with what the worst performance of any performance, for the stock market ever.
in the last couple of months the recession fears have begun to recede. we had a big rally in march. is all of this warranted? should we feel better about where things are today? >> we should feel a little bit better. the u.s. continues to be a good place, not a great place but a good place and you saw that from friday's employment report, 215,000 jobs created, wages going up. china seems to be stabilizing. there are also concerns out there. so the major threat isn't really domestic as much as it is what's happening abroad. keep an eye on europe. they have lots of stuff coming this summer. keep an eye on china to make sure it continues to soft land. >> we're looking at china seemingly beginning to recover. the emerging markets even had a good performance in the last two months or so and that area of the economy has been under a rock. to what do you attribute that performance. is this about oil beginning to stabilize
>> it is about oil. also because markets that lack liquidity like emerging markets tend to overshoot on the way down and tend to overshoot on the way up. we overshot on the way down and now you're seeing the recovery. let's not forget central banks continue to support emerging marks. we have dovish statements out of the fed and ecb, bank of japan and people's bank of china have their pedal to the metal. >> i want to ask you about this report i read earlier and said high earners are leaving places like paris in droves. 10 million have moved out of the city of paris because of the extremism and this worry about islamic extremism. what's your take on what's going on in the world today as it relates to isis, et cetera, and the impact on an economy like europe?
>> we are trying to address to the role of nonstate actors. in the old days it was about nation states and when there were conflicts there were conflicts between nation states. now the major threat come from nonstate actors individuals that can cause major disruption. we as a society are trying to learn how to live with this and how to minimize that risk. you see certain people migrate out of what they view as high-risk areas. but the major thing is we collectively try to contain this risk. >> and in terms of the u.s., where is the risk right now? do you think we'll go into recession this year in '16? >> so i put the 2017 probability at 30%. that's not the baseline. this year is even lower. we get there one of three ways if we get there and i want to stress if. if the fed ends up making a policy mistake.
we get there through a market accident. remember markets have priced in much more liquidity than available or we get there if the world goes into recession. i think the combined probability of all these three things is about 30%. it's not my baseline but something to keep an eye on. >> should you invest in the u.s. market right now? >> i think the u.s. is, by far, the strongest economy in the advanced world. it is also the most stable one all over. the problem is that the u.s. has outperformed in a significant manner in recent years. i think you got to be careful. unfortunately, this is a mark for tactical investors. you've seen we were down 10% in february, up 10%. this is a market where traders will find it much easier to make money. >> certainly has been volatile.
i earn unlimited 2% cash back on everything i buy for my studio. ♪ and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means thousands of dollars each year going back into my business... that's huge for my bottom line. what's in your wallet? it begins from the the second we're born.er. because, healthier doesn't happen all by itself. it needs to be earned every day. using wellness to keep away illness. and believing a single life can be made better by millions of others. as a health services and innovation company optum powers modern healthcare by connecting every part of it. so while the world keeps searching for healthier we're here to make healthier happen. welcome back. endorsements pouring in for candidates in both parties as
the race for the white house heats up. some of them from hollywood. donald trump has quite a diverse cast of celebrity endorsements. my next guest, scott baio, scar of "happy days" and ""charles in charge"." >> we grew up in the same neighborhood. this is fantastic for me. thank you for letting be on. >> it's interesting to see the endorsement for donald trump. tell me first what's behind it. why do you think he's your guy? >> well, i like his proposals on reforming the tax code, building the wall on immigration, repealing obamacare, dropping the corporate tax rate down to bring some of the money back into the country. i think he's a straight shooter when he talks to me. when he talks i understand him. it's like the way you and i grew up. very sort of direct language which i don't need a political
decoder ring to understand what the guy is saying. i think most importantly, maria, for me, and i'm not discounting ted cruz or john kasich, i like them both, but donald trump is the only guy i think that has the will and the nerve to attack and to fight and to fight back because we have this mentality -- i don't -- the republican party which i try not to associate myself with any more because i think they are very untrustworthy on almost every issue, we always seem to have this mentality, they seem to have this mentality they don't want to get down in the dirt, they want to be above the fray and perceived as nice and they get killed. >> and then nothing gets done. >> nothing gets done and they lose elections because they don't want to fight. when you fight you fight to win. and they don't want to ever fight. i can't understand it. >> it's interesting because the way you're speaking you seem to be the exact person, i mean that is the mentality of the support
behind donald trump. you were a conservative or a republican however you want to say it but then you game alienated because you were getting rolled over like so many others within the party who felt like they believed the establishment and then they never really saw anything impact their lives that they thought they were going to see. >> right. maria i consider myself a conservative independent now. listen, by their own doing. give us the house so we can stop certain things. we need the senate. we give them the senate. nothing. and they just roll over and go along with the entire program of the obama administration. what's the point? what's the point of having an election. what's the point in saying something and doing a complete 180. i know what the point is. they do complete 180s. >> how much of this do you think is because of president obama, though? because when you consider the
fact that when he first came into office he had both houses. and during that time he pushed through obamacare, he pushed through things through executive power and republicans even though they talked about fighting back, fighting back, they really didn't have any leverage in that moment in time. but you're right when they got the house, you thought that a lot of things would change. you thought at least bills would get to the president's desk and they didn't. >> do i blame obama? no. i don't blame obama. obama is doing -- iran my opinion obama is one of the most successful presidents we've ever had. >> he's doing what he said he would do. >> the republicans job as the party that can fight him on it didn't want to fight him on anything. i don't blame obama. i don't agree with anything the guy does. the republicans had every opportunity to stop him. and just laid down. >> i think you make some great points. the truth is that the republican party is going through either a
revolution or about to go through a revolution. do you think they can get that leadership back? can they get a scott baio back into their corn center how do they do that? >> it's so easy. do what you say you're going to do. stand up for conservative principles. fight for them. go after people for them. i mean this is the country. this is the country that we grew up in. now, there are certain traditions that i hold dear and certain ovavalues i cherish and they are being eroded. seems their lives are fine in washington. i have a lot of friends of mine who are not in the entertainment business who are hurting a little bit. and don't understand why the erosion of traditional values in this country just happen second by second and nobody seems to care and the republican party --
forget policy. policy is a whole other issue. we're going to stop obamacare. they fund it. we'll scope the executive amnesty and they give it money. it's just one thing after another. to get me back, you got to be a man and do what you say you'll do. >> we just saw that with the omnibus. so many things in that most recent budget people thought that republicans got rolled over. let me ask you this. >> they get rolled on everything, every single issue they get rolled. >> it's unfortunate. that is what created, you know, the support for donald trump. so it doesn't bother you that he may not have the substance on foreign policy? i don't know because we don't hear him talk about it. i want doesn't bother you that he doesn't have true conservative down to the bone conservative principles like, for example, the planned parenthood situation. it sounds like what's most important to you is tax reform which i agree is a huge thing if
they could get that done. huge impact to the economy. >> the only person i agree with 100% on everything is me. i'm not running for president. so nobody is perfect except for me and my beliefs. but, yeah. certain give and take. is he a conservative on foreign policy? i think he's a friend to israel, which i like. >> i like it too. you're right. that's true. >> foreign policy -- listen you want to have this conversation? did obama know foreign policy? foreign policy, you get the best minds in there and then at the end of the day you do what you think is right. you don't bow to the will of advisers and the people in the country. if it's something you want to do and you think it's right and conservative position, you go for it. that's what reagan did. reagan fired all the air traffic
controllers. nobody wanted to do that. he was a man and he did it. and it was a huge move for him. >> great point. does it upset you we may go into a contested convention or do you think trump will get the delegates necessary? >> i'm sure they will screw it up somehow. i'm sure they will do something to piss everybody off. i'm pretty much -- i bet the farm on it. i don't know how the rules work. i'm sure they will change the rules. i just read an article where they are thinking of changing the rules now. so a contested convention? i don't know. >> good to talk with you, sir. >> a pleasure, maria. >> we got to get-together when you come back to new york. so funny we grew up blocks away from each other. >> scott baio joining us. >> thank you. let's get a look on what's coming up on media buzz.
good interview. we'll look at how the media are savaging donald trump important training him as hostile towards women based in part on self-inflicted wounds, particularly his statements on abortion. also when i was in new york this week and had a chance to be on your fox business show i sat down with women. we talked about the way the media are covering the campaign. seems at times to go into the gutter. you'll see that coming up as well. >> i hope you're is going to get into how the president of france, president francois hollande was edited and they took out the word terrorism. i was thinking about you after that. this is something that howie wants to talk about. >> that was something. >> we'll see you in 20 minutes. a mountain of red ink. could it disappear. donald trump says he has the chops to whittle down the $19
trillion debt in the next eight years. i know what i can expect from usaa the usaa car buying app was really helpful. all the information was laid out right there. it makes your life so much easier when you have to purchase a car, so i've been telling everybody. save on your next car with usaa car buying service, powered by truecar.

okay. imagine this. america's $19 trillion debt wiped out in eight years. donald trump says that could happen if he is president. in an interview with "the washington post" trump said the key to do it is by renegotiating trade deals. i want to bring in our panel on that. ed rollins is with us and scott brown and our fox business contributor. is this matthew is it mathematically possible? >> he's talking about renegotiating trade deals.
the only way to get rid of the debt is to go to the people who own the bonds and renegotiate the deal. that's what donald trump when he ran the casinos. >> you are really going to have to put a clamp on spending to get your arms around that $19 trillion debt. how do we do that when we know his tax plan will be lowering taxes. >> up don't continue on the path we've had for the last 20, 30, 40 years and one of the reasons i ultimately support him because i believe he'll bring in brilliant information address this very issue. you look at renegotiating our debt, efficiencies, stimulating the economy. it's a combination approach. will it to be done in eight years? probably not. but at least we're looking at it hopefully differently than we've looked at it in the past. >> it's important that he's even talking about it. >> if i may, i don't want to interrupt ed but it's one of the top if not the top issues affecting our national security is debt and deficit.
>> people aren't talking about it. >> trump has had the worst week he's had about his campaign. had three different positions on abortion. talking about natural jobs getting rid of u.n., letting north korea have nuclear weapons. all kinds of silly things. i would agree with the senator who is an extraordinary adviceor to him you need a bunch more people. before you put these issues out there you have to have somebody give you sound advice in foreign policy affairs and economic affairs. he thinks he knows everything about everything and he doesn't. you can't get rid of $23 trillion in debt with the present revenue. you don't want to raise taxes. entitlement is a massive problem. he has no entitlement reform. my sense is it's a talking point, like a lot of things this week he has to settle down. people look at him far differently than a couple of weeks ago. he may be the nominee and if he's the nominee -- >> i can say something. one other thing.
mr. trump is saying he wants to make america great again. when you're renegotiating your debt whatever the amount is, that's a sign of inherent weakness and trouble. and, you know, or you look at casinos in atlantic city that renegotiate debt. that's not what you do when you're in a position of strength. >> you're an adviser to trump. what kind of advice do you give him about the way he responds to questions. i mean, for me it's less about the specifics of his answer and more about this idea that it's reckless to just say anything that's not thought out like the comments we heard this week lagging rtion. the other guys when it comes to the women vote right now. we'll show you the polls. >> john kasich numbers aren't good with numbers either and neither is ted cruz. there's a gap within the republican party. the negativism on all the
candidates are exceedingly high during this amazingly difficult campaign period. to kind of answer your question what do i do? i tell him like his wife start acting more presidential. >> how does he act? >> he will do what he will do. here's the thing to parlay off what sean said. we need to look a little dinnerly as the way we're doing business. we're not actually getting business done. i want somebody to go in there and look at i want differently. is it renegotiating debt? sure. that's one tool in the tool box. restructuring our tax code? absolutely. all these things that ultimately will hopefully give us a better way to handle our debt and deficit. it's a no brainer. >> can never get entitlement reform. >> absolutely. military spending, entitlement reform and there's ways to do it and i am hopeful he'll get
brilliant people around him. >> ted cruz, you think he's got a shot to take wisconsin, right? >> he's going to do very well in wisconsin. he may win the whole ball game in wisconsin. then you go to new york which trump will do well. trump is not done yet. he has to win about 60% of the delegates. we'll have a contested primary. but the fundamental problem, we're not going to be viable if we don't get women to come back. part of it has been trump. part it has been tone of the election. but if we don't get 90% republican support or plus then you can't do that when 47% republican women say they will never vote for trump. if you don't have that base -- >> that's where hillary clinton comes in. she's all over this. it's getting heated between hillary clinton and bernie sanders. will they or won't they debate ahead of the new york primary. i take prilosec otc each morning for my frequent heartburn
welcome back. a new dispute between the democratic candidates. trading jabs before the prime air yif new york. when to debate s new york up for grabs? panelists back. what do you expect out of new york? >> i think they'll debate. i think she's in real trouble in the state. i predict she's going to win the state at the end of the day. it's her state. if she loses, it's a gigantic hole in her side. at the end of the day, she's struggling and having a hard time getting the delegates she needs. >> actually, it is extraordinary how much she is struggling. >> she was the anoinlted one. as what bernie is talking about, tapping into thatther on the left, you see that in retrospect scheduling all the debates at midnight on a sunday, no one is watching. it's coming back to roost
shechlt wants debates because shez in trouble in new york. and it's funny listening to bernie, i served with him for three years. he is part of the problem. he is the establishment. he's been there when they were in charge. and all the stuff he's talking about, did he nothing. yet, he's the outsider. i find it fascinating. on left as find it fascinating on the right as well. >> it's extraordinary. >> i think her problem isn't bernie sanders. it's the investigations into what was inside her server at home and what she was hiding. >> now we're in the final stages of that investigation. they're going to be interviewing her shortly. >> the fbi director himself is going to investigate her. a former deputy ag of the country. he lived with this every single day. he knows every single answer. i think that's a gigantic -- and he can walk on and say she purjured herself or she didn't. >> that's what's at stake. they already have the answers to the questions they're going to ask. and she's been all over the place. publicly and presuming privately dealing with this whole issue.
so he already knows the answers. he's waiting for her to basically purjure herself or not. >> what do you think she's going to do? what's plan b? biden? >> i don't think there is a plan b. >> bernie sanders? >> it can't be bernie sanders, they'll lose for sure. the reality is they're going to fight to keep her and i think nlts s and unless she has a really bad run -- >> she's had a bad run. >> i know, if she continues and you see the super delegates jump away. >> we get the fed minutes next week. what will we learn? >> it's a green signal to the financial markets. the fed is going to raise rates very, very slowly. and the markets like. that we've seen that in the last couple weeks. >> so should be a pa fositive f markets. the one thing to watch for the week ahead from our panel next.
former president there's. >> i'm watching the town hall meeting to see if trum recover from a bad week. >> are you going to be trump's vice president? >> highly unlikely. i'm certainly happy to help get any republican in the white house whom ever that nominee is. i'm with them 100%. i'm hopeful that people listening will do the same. >> great choice. >> i'll see you tomorrow. >> on the buzz meder, the press hammering donald trump for weeks over his comments about women. now seizing on his stumbles on abortion. >> i was asked as a hypothetical, hypothetically, hypothetically the laws are set now on abortion. >> many commentators also bashing the billionaire for defending his campaign manager against a legal charge of grabbing reporter michelle fields. >> i'm not a lawyer. she said she had a bruise on her arm. i mean to me, if you're going to get squeezed, don't you think she would have screamed or
