do you think donald trump should make an issue of bill clinton's conduct with nim in the 90s iss? facebook.com/thekellyfile. on twitter @megynkelly. thanks for watching. this is "the kelly file." see you tomorrow. welcome to "hannity." and tonight, with senator ted cruz and governor john kasich dropping out of the race, donald trump is the presumptive republican nominee. let me smart by explaining how we got to this point. i know many of you are disappointed that senator ted cruz got out of the race and some are predicting that this is the end of the republican party. a few on the gop side say, oh, they're never going to vote for trump, they'll stay home no november or may even vote for hillary. look, i want to start by saying i am extremely sympathetic in terms of how people's feelings are. i've been oun ot on the road wi these candidates. to run for president, that takes guts, courage, commitment. it truly is the ultimate the
blood sport. now, ted cruz ran a real he hly campaign, one of the toughest candidates i've ever witnessed. he took risks, played the ground game better than most of the other candidates but in the end he did fall short. now, if you really want to understand this election, to me, i think we need to go back to the beginning. so what set the stage for two very different outsider candidates to blow away every seasoned politician that was running? how is it that a record primary voting season like this unfolded? how did a guy like mr. trump, a man who defied all conventional political gravity, actually win the nominee and take out 16 others? now, some of you out there, you're blaming, let's see, fox news, blaming talk radio. by the way, personally, i wish i had that much power and that much influence. i don't. neither does anybody else. if i did, obama never would have been president. now those of you who have that analysis, i think it's extremely shallow and by the way, also predicated on this notion that, well, people are stupid. people are bamboozled. sorry.
i don't buy that for one second. now, this is, and has been, a vote of rebellion unlike anything i've ever seen in my lifetime. or maybe will ever see greeagai. let's go to indiana last night. do you believe people voting for trump in indiana had no clue he was not conventional? do you really believe the voters there didn't see whatever flaws he might have had? do you really believe they didn't see the mistakes that were talked about ad nauseam all over tv and radio? in spite of all of that, the voters in indiana chose him. the question is why? now my answer is i think the voters of indiana knew exactly what was at stake last night. they knew. it was do or die for senator ted cruz. and they knew they had a lot of influence in deciding whether or not it came down to a contested convention or giving trump the nomination. now let me tell you my theory. now trump is a direct result, all you politicians in washington pay attention, it is a direct result of the institutional failure of
republican and democratic governance. now all the things, for example, i laid out on my website, hannity.com, in late 2013, he is a direct result that the republican party has actually allowed president obama's radical agenda to be passed. they didn't stand up to him. politicians cared more about their own money, their own power than they did about the fact that we, what, have 20% of american families that don't have one single member of the family working? 95 million americans out of the labor force? close to $50 million americans suffering in poverty. more than 40 million americans on food stamps. all record numbers. so they were complicit. look at john boehner. nearly $5 trillion in debt on his watch. and of course, republicans had control and the power of the purse. constitutionally. and now our national debt is more than $19 trillion, a burden we're putting on our kids and grandkids. also republican trade deals, what have they done? they've hurt american workers. they've hurt manufacturing in
the country. illegal immigration has allowed, what, 11 million, 14 million illegals into the country. what do they do? they compete for jobs. they drive down wages. and when if comes to the border wall, you know the wall that donald trump talks about, well, the truth is republicans never wanted it built. or it would have been built. hay ca they cared too much about appeasing big business that thrive on cheap labor and of course donate to their campaigns. democrats, well, they're smarter in a way. they're looking at this from the long term. they want a demographic shift that will keep them in power for generations. so if you want to sum this up, you, the people, got fed up. you're angry. you're frustrated. and rightly so, disgusted with d.c. every exit poll showed 60% to 65% of republican primary voters said enough's enough. they feel betrayed. add to that, of course, that americans -- how many wars have we fought? we send our sons and daughters to fight, bleed, and die. our national treasure.
then to have those wars politici politicized. we lost 5,000 brave americans in iraq and afghanistan. look at ramadi, mosul, tikrit, fallujah that end up in the hands of isis. look what happened in vietnam. we can never allow this to happen again. look at american schools. they're failing. the country's health care system has been destroyed as well as intercity america. now, we have a government that allows over $100 billion to go to the number one state sponsor of terror? what do republicans do it stop it? trump really was the only candidate, for example, he took on controversial issues. for example, muslim immigration. he spoke honestly about the concerns that people were having about this country letting in syrian refugees knowing that our director of national intelligence, our fbi director and others, were saying isis will infiltrate the syrian refugee population. he said he wants to build up our military, wants to take care of our veterans, and now republican
voters with full knowledge of who donald trump is and was are saying, we'll take our chance. we'll go with donald trump with a non-politician, with a successful businessman who's created jobs. they know his imperfections but people thought of the 17 he was the best option. after all, they're saying to themselves, what do we got to lose? some conservatives may have concerns about donald trump. they have a right to feel that way. if i was advising mr. trump, i'd put together a written contract. like the contract with america. for example, a few years ago, i offer the up a list of what i called conservative solutions. the conservative solution caucus. to help get america back on track and stop this rapid decline. for example, let's look within our means. the penny plan. balance the budget. pass a balanced budget amendment. you know, limit the amount of taxes government can collect from people. move america toward energy independence. create those jobs. also, we have the benefit of not having to lean on countries that
hate us for the lifeblood of our economy. create health care savings accounts, get rid of obamacare, enact term limits, allow choice in schools, secure the borders. i also think if trump wanted to take my advice, why not take a look at some of these great governors that took high def sits and created surpluses, high unemployment and brought in hundreds of thousands of jobs. some of their pictures are on the screen. my policlists includes many of rivals. strong conservatives who can help him get the country back on the right track. here with reaction, patrick j. buchanan is with us. sir, how are you? >> doing just fine, sean, how are you? >> is my analysis right or wrong? >> it's comprehensive. i think there's an awful lot in there i agree with, my friend. >> you know, but the reality, here's something that -- the reason i wanted to put that together is for all the hand wringing that's going on out there, there's a reality that nobody wants to face.
is that the conditions for an outsider to win like donald trump were created by weak, timid, feckless, visionless republicans. and that's my argument. am i wrong? >> no, you're not. this is a -- the trump success is a repudiation of the political class in the beltway and especially the republican party inside the beltway because it's failed. take the three aces thatump has. immigration. why didn't the republican party in power simply secure the border as some of us beg them to do instead of waiting for 12 million illegals to get into the country? >> but you know the answer. pat, what's the answer? republicans wanted donations from big corporations that want cheap labor. am i wrong or right? >> you're not only right there. you're right on why we got these trade deals. why the bushes and the others got together with bill clinton and enacted nafta. the trade deals benefit transnational corporations that
like to move production abroad because it's cheaper there and then bring their products back to the united states free of charge. all of these trade deals we've done for the benefit of these transnational corporations and to the disastrous effect on american workers who lost these jobs and have had no real increase in wages for years and years and years. i mean, we lost 6 million manufacturing jobs in the first decade of the 20th century. 21st century. but there's something else there, sean. trump was right on. he said, look, we got to stay out of these foreign wars, we're no vital interest of the united states of america. we can't have our guys fighting and dying all over the world. there are thugs all over the place. but unlike what george w. bush said, america's goal in the world is not to end tyranny on this earth because we can't do that utopian -- >> pat, i still believe it was the right thing to do. the war on terror. the battle against iraq.
but what i can't put up with is one more time like vietnam, like iraq, that all these guys win the wars we send them to fight and die for, and then all of a sudden it gets politicized and they get weak at the knees and they pull out and everything goes back to those people -- you know, like it never happened. we can't do that to american sons and daughters. >> we didn't think it through. look at the disaster that exists today in afghanistan, in iraq, in syria, and libya and in yemen. in all of which we're involved. the people that launched the war -- david petraeus said, he had a good line on the road up to baghdad, he said, tell me how this thing ends? it is 13 years on may 1st, sean, since george w. bush said mission accomplished on that aircraft carrier. is the mission accomplished today in mosul? when you see a mob in the green
zone and joe biden goes over there and has to get out of there in ten hours. that's 13 years after mission accomplished. >> let me ask you this. assess a race, hillary versus donald trump. what advice would you give him? i like the idea of a team of rivals. i think people are so cynical now putting promises down on paper. it worked for newt gingrich. the contract with america. tell people what you're going to do. do it. tell them you did it. good idea/bad idea? >> well, no, what i would do as trump, first, he's got three aces here. his three aces are the immigration issue, the trade issue, and the foreign policy issue. america first. he's got those issues. i would put together a vice presidential -- put a vice president on there who reinforces that who could bring him some strength from a state or sizable constituency and go on the offensive after hillary rodham clinton and i think the decisive states are going to be what you might call the blue collar states, the rust belt
states of pennsylvania, ohio, michigan. i think in not illinois. but those states up there theis where this is going to be decided. i think trump with a top-notch candidate, if he unites the party -- >> who would that candidate be? >> you know, i would not drop -- i would prefer not to drop out names as he prefers not to drop out names right now. >> okay. and he can beat -- from pat buchanan's perspective, he'll win the general election, he can win this? >> i think he can win for this reason. hillary was a better candidate, frankly, in 2008 than she is right now. when trump said, you know, she would only have 5% if she weren't a woman, he has this point. the woman -- being a woman is the strongest appeal hillary clinton has because she is not a good candidate. she is not what i used to call a political athlete. she's getting clobbered in state after state by bernie sanders. >> i got to run. >> at least he's got a message. >> well said. all right. thank you, patrick j. buchanan.
when we come back, donald trump's son, don jr., here to weigh in on his father's campaign. how can he unite the party? that's next. plus, is hillary clinton trying to steal the democratic nomination from bernie sanders? "fox & friends'" heather nauret here to explain how the superdelegates work and if they didn't exist, this race would be a lot tighter. that and more tonight on "hannity." i think we should've taken a left at the river. tarzan know where tarzan go! tarzan does not know where tarzan go. hey, excuse me, do you know where the waterfall is? waterfall? no, me tarzan, king of jungle. why don't you want to just ask somebody? if you're a couple, you fight over directions. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. oh ohhhhh it's what you do. ohhhhhh! do you have to do that right in my ear? igoing to clean betteran electthan a manual. was he said sure...but don't get just any one. get one inspired by dentists, with a round brush head.

good evening, and live from america's news hq, i'm jackie ibanez. a 48 hour cease-fire is now in effect in the northern syrian city of aleppo. the halt in fighting came after u.s. officials announced an agreement has been reached with russia. a u.n. official says the syrian government's bombing of aleppo o over the past two weeks is worst of the five-year war.
hundreds of civilians have been injured or lost their lives in the past ten days of fighting. more signs tonight late singer, prince, might have suffered from addiction. a doctor who was called to help him is an addiction and pain specialist. his attorney now says prince's representatives reached out just one day before the pop star died. the doctor was unavailable but sent his son. he was the one who called 911 after staffers found prince unresponsive on april 21st. i'm jackie ibanez. now back to "hannity." for all your headlines, log on to foxnews.com. welcome back to "hannity." so donald trump is now looking ahead to the general election after becoming the presumptive republican nominee. here with reaction, donald trump's son, donald trump jr. i'd shake your hand. i have a horrible cold. i don't want to get you sick. >> i appreciate it, by the way. most people tell you after you shook their hand. >> you just shook my hand, gee, i appreciate it.
huge win for your dad. from the very beginning, he has defied all conventions l political gravity. >> >> 100%. >> defeated the top names in the republican party. did you always think it would happen? >> it's interesting, obviously it was against all odds. if i took all the quote/unquote experts when we got into this, zero chance, maybe less than 1% and now he's done it. >> people are saying it about the general. >> exactly. so what does their opinion actually mean? not a lot. i want to do the outtake reel, i called it all along. everyone's a genius in hindsight, right? honestly, it's just special, sean. to be a fly on the wall to see this process, so historic really. no one has deone this, an outsider coming in to take on umpteen governors and umpteen senators, experience and connection to the party, his message of giving a slovoice toe people has been big and they get it. >> as i said in my opening
monologue tonight, i think there's a reason for this. all these people left behind, 20% don't have a family member with a job. i think they said enough. >> 100%. >> record debt, record deficits. regulation that doesn't allow us to frack or coal mining like hillary said. it's having a profound impact. >> as a country, this government, they don't even want to let us take advantage of the natural resources we have. they want to impede that. hillary's comments about the coal miners, i don't get it, why would we be dependent on countries that can't stand us when we actually have this stuff in the ground. we can put people to work. >> did you hear the coal miner that confronted her? he's comin program. >> that's great. >> they want to put them outfra. >> my father signs the front of paychecks. all the jobs they've created, they haven't created jobs.
>> right. >> they haven't done any of that in real life. my father's message of talking to the people, not talking at them, not lecturing them like academics but talking to them like people. your voice matters. it's incredible. the following he's been able to achieve with that has been incredible. >> at any moment, either last night or this morning, did this become real for you? in other words, what's about to happen? >> very much so. it's so surreal. it's so special just to be a small part of it. just to help be a voice, you know, for those people in this. so it's really spercial. it's awesome being here. >> now you move to a general election. looks like it's going to be hillary clinton. i know katrina pierson is an interview earlier today said hillary clinton has not been vetted. i actually agree with that. i don't think most people know about her background, why your dad calls her crooked hillary. there's a reason for it. there's going to be a long process of really vetting her. >> i think so. listen, i'm a man, i believe in
mathematic and statistics, right? there's no way, no way you have all these instances that are linked in this and this and that. where there's not an actual connection. where there's smoke, there's fire. there's so much smoke. now, it's different when you have, you know, a valerie jarrett type. when your team is taking care of you and protecting you from actual persecution and prosecution, it makes it a little bit harder. i think when the people really see what's out there, when they really see, you know, the links to all of this craziness, she's a very flawed candidate. >> how do you like the idea -- because i thought there was some very strong candidates that your dad went up against. governors that did great job of taking record deficits, turning them into surpluses, high unemployment rates, bringing hundreds of thousands of jobs to their states. it seems -- i think this is one of the strongest fields i've ever seen in my lifetime. what about your dad and the relationship? he talked about people calling him, i guess they want -- the last on the ship. by the way, the first controversy, they'll be the first off. >> of course. >> what about some of those guys like rick perry who has a great record, bobby jindal, john
kasich, and people out of government, rudy giuliani, newt gingrich? >> listen, i mean, guys like rudy have been so vocal, guys like newt have been vocal about it. they've been great. we'd love to have them on board. right now it's about unity, bringing the party together for a common goal to win in november. i think there's some great examples. i think there's some people that can get on. i think looking back to june as i'm sort of caught up in this incredible moment -- >> trip down the escalator. >> right before that, i remember the one thing my father said, it wasn't about wow, this is real or this is -- it's now we'll find out who our friends are. >> did that happen? >> well, of course. right? >> you always do. >> you always do. >> you really say that before? >> it's been a great vetting process for, you know, who's a friend and who's not. there's been many that have been and many that -- >> they want to get on the train now. >> yeah. i woke up to my e-mail and text messages this morning. i think i had 325 text message. >> happy for you. >> now they're back on board. so it's -- it's been a great process. >> one idea, there were two big
conservative movements i think in the country where i think it profoundly changed america for the better. obviously the reagan years and the second was newt's contract with america. when you look at the distrust that the voters now have with republicans and democrats in washington, do you think -- do you like the idea of putting on paper -- i know your dad mentioned he will name all the people he would consider for the supreme court. do you like the idea of maybe making that -- just like a contract that he does for business. >> i think so. i think there's certainly some merit to it. i think at the same time, my father's done so well because people realize he's a businessman, realize he can create jobs and they realize there's dynamics in the markets that change. so putting something on paper today may not be as applicable in 18 months from now depending what's going on in the world, going on in the economy. >> certain things will be, energy -- >> he's been talking about fracking and been talks about these for a long period of time. we're the saudi arabia of natural gas, the saudi arabia of coal.
the other side says we'd rather buy this stuff from our enemies, create a monopoly from them, they can also jack up the pricing. that's all they're doing now. lowering the price po put our natural gas producers out of business because it's more expensive to extract that kind of gas than oil in saudi arabia two feet below the surface. >> ridiculous. >> they'll come back in, prices will go back up -- >> they manipulate it -- >> we have this stuff in our backyard, can employ people with it, use surpluses to help educate our chirldren. how about take care of our vets? all of these great people in america have been totally neglected. >> easy things we can do. >> so much. it's crazy. it's just been neglected. >> low-hanging fruit. >> i agree. very much so. >> ted cruz supporters are answerry. they're upset. there's still a segment of the republican party that says never trump. what does your dad do to bring them into the camp? >> listen, i think he has to be himself. he'll always be himself. i have to say, listen, he has a great conservative message. one that's attracting new people
to the party. that's what i've never understood. just, you know, why shun away -- you know, it's not like you're winning. you know, in pure demographics, the conservatives are probably outnumbered in a certain way. if you can bring hundreds of thousands into the state of pennsylvania, especially a state like pennsylvania, a purple state -- >> michigan, wisconsin. >> all of these states where jobs have been shipped abroad. his entire message from day one has been about that, taking care of those people, not taking care of our enemies and making sure they're not mobile offended. it's been about creating jobs for americans in america. >> has he talked to ted, will he reach out to ted cruz? >> i imagine he will. listen, he said it last night, he was really eloquent in his speech last night. hey, i've done a lot of fighting in my life, had serious adversaries and he was at the top as it comes. my father doesn't say that lightly. me says that with a lot of respect. again, right now it's about unity bringing all these people toblg together.
we'd love to work with everyone to achieve the mission, the mission is to put americans back to work, bring jobs back to this country, create surpluses so we can take care of our children, take care of our vets, take care of the people who make our country so great. >> beginning to sound like you got the political bug, yourself. it's hard not to. it's hard not to. i can walk down the street when these people come up to me, many cases, you know, the middle part of the country coming up in tears. >> yeah. >> you say wait a minute, if i can be -- i'm just a small cog in the wheel, right? be a smart of giving that person, you know, letting them achieve this american dream story again, you know, that dream that's been wiped away. >> i've had the same experience. it impacts -- >> that's why i get it with some of the politicians, right, why it's so hard for them to leave these races because you speak to 10,000 people a day and they're your biggest fans and supporters. you can't even look at -- say maybe i got to do something a little differently. it's moving. i mean, it's been, you know, i'm not always necessarily an emotional guy but it's pretty special. it's as special as anything i've seen.
>> don jr., great to see you. i'd shake your hand but i can't. all right. we'll take a quick break. we have a lot more coming up. hillary clinton lost badly in indiana last night but we'll explain how superdelegates are helping her steal the nomination from bernie sanders. heather nauert here with a full report. then later -- >> when you make comments like we're going to put a lot of coal miners out of jobs, these are the kind of people that you're affecting. this is my family. >> hillary clinton caught in a massive lie about destroying america's coal industry. that coalworker who called her out, right to her face, will join us coming up later, tonight and more on "hannity."

explore it in a subaru crosstrek. love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru. welcome back to "hannity." so senator bernie sanders scored another major win against hillary clinton beating her last night in indiana, but thanks to the support of those unelected superdelegates in the democratic party, well clinton is way ahead of sanders. at the "hannity" big board tonight with a full report is
"fox & friends'" heather nauert. >> about the superdelegates for hillary clinton as she tries to secure the democratic nomination. she's all but locked up her spot in the general election thanks in part to all those superdelegates. let's take a look at those numbers. clinton has a huge edge over sanders with 522 superdelegates pledging their support to her. if you look at just the pledged delegates, clinton still leads by more than 300, but the race is a lot closer. sean, this issue over superdelegates is something that sanders and his supporters are very much aware of. last night, the senator promised to do something about it. take a listen. >> we understand, and i do not deny it for one second, that we have an uphill battle in front of us. but i think we have a path toward victory although it is a narrow path. our goal is twofold. number one, to win a majority of pledged delegates. number two, it is to make sure
that in those states where we have won landslide victories, you know, 65%, 70% of the votes that the superdelegates in those states listen to their constituents and vote the way their constituents voted. >> well, there you go. sanders also said his campaign will try to flip the superdelegates who've already pledged their support to hillary clinton so, sean, we'll continue to follow how this develops. a lot going on. back to you. >> all right, heather. thank you. here with reaction, fox news contributors doug schoen, leslie marshall. you know it's a rigged system. >> rigged system. 3 00 votes ahead, 300 elected delegates ahead. the superdelegates are insurance by the democratic elite. >> the insurance. >> yeah. >> you know what, maybe if people knew it was closer without the superdelegates, maybe the race -- if the bernie sanders supporters thought they had a chance, they might come out in more force. >> many more force? >> more force. >> look at the numbers that are
coming out in support -- >> democratic voting is depressed compared to the last two election cycles. >> he's bringing out people not that are democrats but are independents. he's also bringing out youth. bringing out -- >> socialists, redistribution status. he's bringing them all out. >> no, look, i agree with you if you want to use the word, rigged, republican and democrat, but everybody in this game knows the rules of this game, sean. >> but wait -- >> if they want to get in and change the rules -- >> the republican party -- i have criticized their system. it's not rigged like this where the establishment says, here's 600 free delegates. >> but remember the primary is about the party picking the candidate sp pi candidate. picking the nominee. >> why do people vote if the democratic party decides to give all those superdelegates to her? >> because the people have voted. like you said, over 3 million votes ahead. >> when they were only literally 150 delegates apart, the democratic party add the 450
superdelegates she'd accumulated, it was not a race anymore. they made sure she'd win. >> sean, it's an insurance policy. she's going to be the nominee. what you're going to see her do is pivot to do what you know the democrats do best, vicious attacks on the republicans. the republicans have to get together. >> same old strategy. >> it works. >> unconventional year. >> you know it works. >> it works historically. i'm not going to disagree. but i don't know -- i think all bets are off this year. >> well, you could be right, but you're going to see between $ 1 billion and $2 billion brought on anti-woman, want to cut the budget, all of that. >> trump is a master of insulting. and this is a woman he is insulting. i can't wait for this. think about when the woman card came out, she raises more money, she gets more women in her corner. >> i tell you what, she's the enabler and her husband is the abuser. >> and her husband's not running, by the way. i know you're shocked. >> she's the enabler and she helped -- >> i tell you what the big question to me is. can the republicans all now coalesce and can they let paul
manefort, a political genius, man of great sophistication, run a professional campaign? you're going to do it amateur hour. trump is a genius as a communicator but he is not not able to, one, be a one-man band. >> if you really watch it, the number of mistakes he's made, he's not on twitter as much. hasn't made that many mistakes lately. >> i understand. it's going to take $1 billion to $1.5 billion of coordinated money to give -- >> he can match it. >> i don't think he will. think it will be the party. >> it's not just about money with trump. okay? trump needs to change his tune because the primary is not a general election. this is a very different position -- >> he really needs to take your advice, leslie. i'll make sure he hears about it. we got to break. god to see you both. coming up, hillary clinton caught in a bold-face lie about her plan to kill the coal industry. remember that coal worker who confronted hillary about that? he will join us next. s then later, now that donald trump is the presumptive republican nominee, what does he need to do to unite the party around his campaign? the legendary former head coach

the best returns aren't just measured in dollars. welcome back to "hannity." so the west virginia primaries are less than a week away and hillary clinton is in hot water after being confronted about her anti-coal sentiments by a mountain state resident who lost a job in the struggling west virginia coal industry. watch this. >> when you make comments like we're going to put a lot of coal miners out of jobs, these are the kind of people that you're affecting. this is my family. my hope, my future. i just want to know how you can say you're going to put a lot of coal miners out of jobs then come in here and tell us how you're going to be our friend? because those people out there don't see you as a friend. >> i know that, bo.
and, you know, i don't know how to explain it other than what i said was totally out of context from what i meant because i have been talking about helping coal country for a very long time. >> all right. so were those words of hers taken out of context? here's what she said back in march. take a look. >> i'm the only candidate which has a policy about how to bring economic opportunity using clean, renewable energy as the key, into coal country. because we're going to put a lot of coal minerses and coal companies out of business. those people labored in those mines for generations losing their health, often losing their lives to turn on our lights and power our factories. now we got to move away from coal and all the other fossil fuels. >> oh, put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of work. out of business. joining us now is the laid off coal worker who confronted hillary clinton, bo copley is with us. sir, thank you for being with us.
appreciate it. she lied to you. right to your face. when she said that. didn't she? >> it would seem so or at least the way i took it, it was, but, you know, she did say that she's trying to bring clean energy into the coalfields, but she said we're going to put a lot of coal miners and -- >> companies out of business. >> and co-operations out of work, really. yeah, it just seemed like it was a lot of joy in her voice when she said it. >> i think she's serious about it but i think it goes deeper when it comes to energy. i mean, we have more natural gas. we have more coal. we have more energy, oil, reserves that we don't use and we're importing it. it's the lifeblood of our economy and we're importing all of this from countries oftentimes that just hate our guts. but this is your life's work. this is your business. and you said, how can you come here and act like you're our friend? go into more detail how this
would impact you. >> well, it's -- no one likes to have someone say they're going to take away your livelihood and come in and turn around and say that's not what i innocent. we don't have many other opportunities in our area. if that's your intention, you know, eventually coal may play out on down the line. we have plenty of reserves left, but, again, it's not a renewable energy. but we should be able to use what we have right now until something better comes along and under current epa guidelines, we just can't do it and we have nothing else to turn to. >> how long have you been working in the coal industry? >> i worked in the coal mining industry for 11 years. >> okay. by the way, tough work? black lung has been a huge problem over the years. have they done anything to help the miners out?
>> a lot of companies focus on safety now more than they used to. i know that arch coal who i worked for, one of their biggest -- matter of fact, their number one goal every day was work safe. >> let me play donald trump's comments responding to this and get your take on it. >> we're not going to be hillary clinton, and i watched her three or four weeks ago when she was talking about the miners as if they were just numbers and she was talking about she wants the mines closed and she will never let them work again. let me tell you, the miners in west virginia and pennsylvania, which was so great to me last week, and ohio and all over, they're going to start to work again. believe me. you're going to be proud again to be miners. >> when you compare the two statements, does this impact you politically? >> well, no doubt what he said
resonates with me. it resonates with the people where i'm from, but, again, i always let god guide me into the right direction on these decisions and that's what i have to do, is i pray and ask god to lead me in the right direction because although it is a top priority for our region, it's not the only priority for me. so there are other policies that we have to look at, but honestly, i've never had anyone be so -- so many people so concerned over my political views before. so this is -- this is all kind of new to me. >> well, i totally understand that. and you should have a right to continue in your industry and somebody just so cavalierly talking about shutting it down, oh, that's your mortgage, that's your car payment, that's food on your table. i don't think -- that doesn't h about people. but bo, i wish you and your
family and your fellow miners all the best. thanks for being with us. >> thanks for having me, sean. >> pretty gutsy thing to do. and coming up, now that donald trump is the presumptive gop nominee, it's time for republicans to unite behind him. how will he do it? legendary college football coach lou holtz will be here next with reaction along with a.j. delgado as we continue. you owned your car for four years, you named it brad. you loved brad. and then you totaled him. you two had been through everything together. two boyfriends, three jobs... you're like nothing can replace brad. then liberty mutual calls, and you break into your happy dance. if you sign up for better car replacement™, we'll pay for a car that's a model year newer with 15,000 fewer miles than your old one. see car insurance in a whole new light. liberty mutual insurance. so we invented a word thatuten, means that.tificial flavors. shmorange. and it rhymes with the color of our bottle.
hey, baby, make it your first word! sfx: baby speak not even close. reach for the orange, it's 100% shmorange! >> test test. >> test test hey! this is lloyd. to prove to you that the better choice for him is aleve. he's agreed to give it up. ok, but i have 30 acres to cover by sundown. we'll be with him all day as he goes back to taking tylenol. yeah, i was ok, but after lunch my knee started hurting again so... more pills. yep... another pill stop. can i get my aleve back yet?
for my pain... i want my aleve. get all day minor arthritis pain relief with an easy open cap. is it keeps the food out. for me before those little pieces would get in between my dentures and my gum and it was uncomfortable. just a few dabs is clinically proven to seal out more food particles. super poligrip is part of my life now. now it's war, they band i want them dead!lves.

suspend my campaign today. i have renewed faith, deeper faith, that the lord will show me the way forward and fulfill the purpose the purpose of my life. >> and then, there was one, that was ohio governor john kasich announcing he's dropping out of the g.o.p. race for president. so, how can donald trump now unify the party? here with reaction, our former legendary coach, lou holtz and columnist, aj dellgado. you and bobby knight supported donald trump. some people are angry over the primary. how -- you bring people together. you did bring teammates together. how would trump bring a team together and bring this team together? >> bringing team togethers in a
common cause. you look at more people on welfare, more people on food stamps. res people working in the last 40 years. and yet, we have a tremendous debt. these variety of things. this cannot keep happening. in order for that to change we have to come together. we have no alternative in it. >> we don't. hillary clinton is not a good alternative. that is a third obama term. aj. if you talked to donald trump what would you say to him? >> spread your positive message. when you look at it, and g.o.p. will see this, we have the most remarkable candidate since reagan. whether on jobs, trade, or immigration it's amazing how much he's standing up for the american people. and voters across the g.o.p. will see this. the alternative is hillary clinton, someone who is talking about restricting our second amendment rights. and someone who will fill up the supreme court with her fellow leftist radicals. the choice is clear and it will be donald trump.
>> are the things that maybe could help donald trump reassure people, because he doesn't have the political experience of some of these guys, contract with america, something like that. bringing in some rivals, as part of the team, especially successful governors, maybe senator rubio, senator cruz. and say listen, bygones be bygones, let's unite the country. >> this is what i would say to the political establishment. how did this happen? it came about because we're in trouble. we finally got control of the house. that didn't change. then, we got control of the house and senate. that still doesn't change. the reason is that we have 17 of the best candidates possible. why? because the people are just tired. they're tired of political correctness and the economy, and tired of immigration. we can go on and on. understand, this happened because of what you've done. we've got to come together to change it or none of us are going to have a job. >> that is my opening memo on
the program tonight. my opening thoughts that republicans caused this, these created the insurgency, now, they don't know how to handle it. do you think the establishment, as i have felt, they hate the way the voters are voting here? i think there is going to be some that some that try to sabotage trump and ted cruz if he was the nominee? >> there will be some, of course, but i is faith most of the establishment are patriots at the end of the day who do want the best of the country. >> these people have been weak, timid, and visionless. you know, the reasons as coach holtz points out they were elected, they didn't have the back bone to fight for those things, stop obama's agenda, adding record trillions to the debt. republicans helped do that. >> right, well that is the disease and donald trump is the cure, let's hope they're willing to see the flaws in themselves
and join the new movement we have going just as mr. holtz pointed out. it's time to come together and fix these issues. >> coach, you could have been in washington. you didn't listen to me, coach. >> yes. i thought you were my friend. whenever we are, good or bad, it's because of the choices we make, just hope the people in this country make a good choice this fall. >> let's hope so. hillary clinton is a third obama term, guys, good to see you, appreciate it. coming up, we need your help. a very, very important question of the day, that maybe donald trump will pay attention to, straight ahead. there's a more enjoyable way to get your fiber. try phillips' fiber good gummies plus energy support. it's a fiber supplement that helps support regularity, and includes b vitamins to help convert food to energy. mmm, these are good! nice work phillips'. the tasty side of fiber, from phillips.
