7:01 pm
talking about. >> here with reaction presumptive republican nominee donald trump is with us. good to see you. >> hi. >> your take on the meeting? what did you think? >> i thought it was a great meeting. we discussed a lot of things, a lot of very important things and i thought it was really a very, very good meeting. i think paul felt the same way and everybody else did also. >> maybe it's just me, there's a part of me that thinks i understand that people saying you're the nominee, you have the job to unite the party, but doesn't he as speaker of the house have that job? >> i think he does and i think he's doing a good job. he's got not an easy job and i don't mind going through a slow process. it's a big subject. we have a lot of things and i k for on a lot of different items and we're getting there. i feel very strongly about boarder security. i feel very strongly about trade. i feel very strongly about
7:02 pm
building up the military and to a large extent i think paul is there also. so we'll get is there i'm pretty sure. >> i've interviewed you a lot in this process. you say you want conservative justices to the supreme court, you said you'll even give us a pool of names before the election, right? >> right. i'm going to do that, yes. >> so you're going to build a wall. that's conservative. conservative justices obviously are. you've said to me repeatedly you want to get the budget back in balances, that you will repeal and replace obama likely with health care savings accounts. >> absolutely. common core, we'll get rid of common core and bring education locally and protect our second amendment so important, so so important and the second amendment is big chipped away at and as far as hillary's concerned she wants to abolish the second amendment. i believe she wants to abolish the second amendment. she's a disaster in so many different ways so we're going
7:03 pm
to -- i think we had a great meeting today and we agreed on a lot of things and it will be a process but it will come along. >> you want to be energy independent. you said you want to take care of vets and build up the military. maybe it's me. what does he want to know? why is this so hard for him to say yeah, i agree with him on all of those issues right there and hillary clinton is on the other side? i don't understand why that's so hard. >> i think a big thing was the judges, the justices, supreme court, i think they felt good about it. i had this idea a couple of months ago because i was getting a little bit of push back from some great friends of mine in congress and they were telling me how can we feel a little bit better and i came up with this idea that i would come up with a list of really, really terrific acceptable judges, conservative, and i'll put that list forward and that will be a list from which i'll choose or at least a list of which i'll use as a
7:04 pm
guide and i'll tell you that went a long way. people really liked that idea a lot. >> i think a lot of people do and i've heard people talk about maybe even naming sop cabinet positions. you've got a team of people, you have ben carson working for you and chris christie is working for you now. would you maybe name some of those people along with a vice president before the election? >> i do think so. i think before the election i'd name some and i think they would be really great. we have some great names, you mentioned two much them and we have other great names. they would love to be involved and they want to be involved. i get a kick all of these people saying they don't want to be understood, they don't want to be for the vice president position and but none of those people were asked. it's like one of those things. they're turning me down but they would never asked and i guess they turned me down because they know they're not going to shall asked, but we have some incredible people for vice president that i think you'll be impressed with and i'll do that announcement probably during the
7:05 pm
convention in cleve lapped. >> there was a report you've narrowed it down to five or six people is that true. >> that's radio. >> anything you can tell us about that? >> i can tell you you'll like most of them. i'm not sure about all of them, but you'll like most of them. but i think you'll like the final pick which is the only one that counts. we'll have some interesting days and nights ahead because it's tough. it's a tough decision. you have some that are really strong in some areas. we want to get somebody that's good in all areas and i think we have a few that are really excellent and that people are going to like and really respect as people. >> let's talk some issues came up this week in the last week and a half some am big guty on issues of minimum wage and raising taxes and whether or not you were softening your stance on bringing refugees in the country. let's clarify. minimum wage.
7:06 pm
>> let me tell you, the only thing i am talking about a little bit is i want -- i like the idea of the states looking at minimum wage because if they don't new york is totally different than if you go to alabama or arkansas or so many places that i love. they voted for me. i love them all. but you're talking about a whole different cost of living. so what's good for new york is not necessarily good for some place else. new york is very expensive to live in and i could see having more in recollection nnew york other places and the standard might be better in alabama or arkansas and other places than it would be in new york even though new york would have a higher minimum wage. i like giving it to states to dining room a determine and they have to compete with each other. i like the concept of giving it to states. in some states where it's more expensive maybe they do have to lift the minimum wage and others they don't have to do it. they also have to committee with each other in business. i really like the idea because
7:07 pm
it's so different, it's a big country, it's so different antd the cost of living is so different i like letting the states set the minimum wage. >> how about tax increases? i saw that you said maybe we'll raise taxes on the wealthy. you clarified on twitter. >> these people on minimum wage i said about states and i think it's clear and i think it's a good idea and i've been praised for that. as far as taxes are concerned, all i said -- when i put in taxes it's really a proposal. it's no the a policy. it's not anything. it's a proposal. so you put in taxes because you're going to have to negotiate with congress and senators and congress people. they're going to be -- it's going to be a tough negotiation. i'm going to possibly have to lift it from my proposal, but that proposal even when lifted it will be cheaper than it is right now. as you know larry kudlow is in
7:08 pm
love with my plan and he likes my plan the best, but my plan is the biggest cut of anybody. i have the biggest tax cut of anyone. but remember when i put in the proposal and proposed rates and everything else, it's going to be negotiated. you're not going to put in and everybody is going to say that's wonderful i'm going to leave it there. we're taking care of big league of the middle class and business. our business taxes are being reduced by a magnificent -- by a tremendous sum and i will say perhaps from my low proposal perhaps the wealthy will go a little bit up from that standpoint, but that's all i was saying. they're not going up. that's not a clarification. that's just all you have to do is read it. i'll tell you who covered it well, yesterday the wall street journal had an article that covered what i said so well because the writer got it. he understood it. it was covered so perfect. >> when you really think look at the latest numbers that have come out is this is the scarey part and i asked you a lot in
7:09 pm
almost every interview you have one in five families that don't have is a single family member in the workforce. look at young people today. young men 18 to 34 this is staggering, one in six are either incarcerated or don't have a job. now, if we don't turn that around, then our country is in decline. that's going to be probably the biggest challenge you have, right? >> we're loie losing our busine and manufacturing. i won new york and pennsylvania and maryland. i won every state. you look at indiana which was the most recent one and then the other night we just had a fantastic night also in nebraska, in west virginia, you look at what's happened in west virginia with the miners where hillary clinton says she wants to put the miners and the mines out of business and i say just the opposite, we're going to put the miners back to work and we're going to open up the mines. it's just insane what's going on. she's like a job killing machine. she is horrible in terms of the
7:10 pm
economy, horrible. don't forget it was her husband who signed nafta which was probably the greatest in terms of a disaster the greatest disast disaster we've ever had economically for jobs. i went through new york and pennsylvania and maryland and connecticut and all these states, they're like empty. >> it's scarey. >> the jobs have been sucked out of us. they've moved to next kmexico. china has sucked the life out of us. i can do it. >> every exit poll shows jobs, the economy, people's top concern. this president has accumulated more debt than every other president before him combined. james cuomo our assistant fbi director, general allen, the director of national intelligence, james clapper our homeland security chairman have all said isis will infiltrate the refugee population.
7:11 pm
you took a strong stand. it was reported today that you said that's only a suggestion, a temporary ban. explain. >> no, i would not allow people to come in from syria. they're not vetted properly. they're moving in by the thousands. you remember i told you thousands of people are going to power pour in. thousands of people are coming in from syria. we don't know who they are and if you look at the migration you have a lot of young strong men. you look at the women. where are the women and children? you don't have many by comparison. we cannot allow people to come in from syria and i would stop it and i would stop it immediately. we have tens of thousands of people coming into this country. we don't know who they are. there's no paperwork or documentation. with that being said build safe zones in syria and i'll get the gulf states to pay for it. we have a disaster going on in our country. our roads, our highways, our bridges and tunnels, airports,
7:12 pm
hospitals, everything, our schools. . have a disaster going on. we're going to rebuild our country. we've spent almost $5 trillion in the middle east. we can't do this anymore. we have to knock the hell out of isis, that i have to say, but we have to get back to rebuilding our country. >> we'll take a break. the washington post has an army of 20 people that want to look at every single aspect and phase of your life, we'll talk about the polls against hillary clinton as we continue with donald trump after the break and coming up tonight. >> we're on the same page. it was positive. it was cooperative. it had good spirit in the room. >> that was reince priebus talking about today's meeting in washington with donald trump and paul ryan. he'll join us and much more what republicans need to do to beat hillary clinton in the fall. and then later tonight the pat ree arkansas of duck

7:15 pm
word out of washington tonight that the white house will issue a sweeping decree for transgender students. "the new york times" reports the administration wants every public school district in the country to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender itemty. a letter will go out tomorrow asking schools to ensure that no student is discriminated against. it does not have the force of law, but reportedly warns schools they could face lawsuits or loss of federal aide if they fail to comply.
7:16 pm
the capture of ten american sailors cost a top naval leader his job. the service has lost confidence. his ship was pralg the gulf when it veered off course wand was seized by iranian forces. the men were held and then released unarmed. now back to hannity. welcome back. we continue now with republican presidential candidate donald trump. you're winning by four in ohio, you're even in pennsylvania and florida. how do you interpret that poll? >> i think really good. we have to win florida. i think i'll win florida. i won florida against marco by massive number. we had a 20% victory and pennsylvania we won massively and we will win that against
7:17 pm
hillary. she wants to put the miners out of business. i think we're going to win pennsylvania and ohio is a great state for me. i did very well in ohio. we had a great number in ohio. i did a very good job? if i would have been there for two more days you would have seen, but we got a great number in ohio. >> look at the -- i don't know if you've seen they came out with the war room, how the clintons fought back in 1992 against george bush. very insightful. it gives you insight into your friend. we know about the clinton machine. we know they play dirty. they'll say and do anything to get elected. between that and "the washington post" announcing they have put 20 people to dig into every single phase of your life, are you prepared for what's coming, not if it's comi, but what's coming. >> it's interesting you say that because every hour we're getting calls from reporters from "the
7:18 pm
washington post" asking ridiculous questions and i will tell you this is owned as a toy by jeff who controls am zon. he's using the washington post for power so the politicians don't tax amzon like they should be. he's worried where he thinks i would go after him for anti-trust because he has a huge anti-trust problem because he's controlling so much. they're controlling so much of what they're doing he bought this paper for practically nothing and he's using that as a political tool for power against me and other people. we can't let him get away with it. he has about 20, 25. i've heard they're taking these bad stories -- they're wrong. in many cases they have no proper information and they're putting them together and ther going to do a book and the book is going to be all false stuff
7:19 pm
because the stories are so wrong and the reporters, one after another so what they're doing is he's using that as a political instrument to try and stop anti-trust which he thinks i believe he's anti-trust, in other words what he's got is a mon oppositely and he wants to make sure i don't get in. i'll tell you what, what he's doing is wrong and the people are being -- the whole system is rigged. you see a case laike that, the whole system is rigged. he's using -- he's using t"the washington post" for political purposes to save amzon in terms of taxes and anti-trust. >> let me ask you about hillary. you commented about her being an enbeliever. y i've interviewed those women. they tell the stories and more
7:20 pm
importantly they tell about how they were smeared and slandered when they did tell their stories. i haven't heard you talk a lot about the e-mail server investigation, i haven't heard you talk a lot about the clinton foundation. hillary says she's for women and the foundation took money from the saudis. did the saudis buy her silence. >> i talk about the e-mails all the time and what can you say? does it get any more corrupt or crooked then that. she's been protected. before she gets this nomination, you talk about a rig, i watched this guy bernie sanders, i'm not fan of his and i watch him win every night and everybody says he can't win because she has these super delegates so i'm talking about that all the time. the clinton foundation obviously is looking to me like it's got some big problems. if you read the book and see the movie that's coming out, the movie is brutal from what i
7:21 pm
understand. >> i actually know all about it, yeah. >> i'm talking about the e-mails all the time. look, people have done like 2% of what she did and they have paid -- they've destroyed their life over it and what she's done with the e-mails is horrible. now i hear the man that set it up and set up the server has gone rog so let's see what happens. i think she has big problems. i don't know whether or not they'll prosecutor. >> nearly half of bernie sanders voters say they will vote for you instead of hillary. hillary has warned her donors, they sent out an e-mail the other night saying if bernie runs the table on the remaining states the corrupt system of super delegates gives it to hillary so she's doing very poorly here. i'll give you an example. back in 2008 when she ran in west virginia she had 240,000 votes she got less than 85,000. what do you make of how she
7:22 pm
can't close this nomination on her side. >> she isn't a closer here and she wasn't a closer the last time she wasn't a closer with the chinese and she's not going to be a closer with isis, she hurt us with libya and isis has taken the oil. what she's done has been a disaster. she's not a closer. the bottom line whether it's the election or whether it's the election against obama in terms of the primaries, she's just not a closer. this is not a woman that would be that should be president. we have so much work to do. i don't think she has the energy to be president. i don't think she can do it. you see it right now, she cannot close the deal. >> if you look at exit polls in every state same answer republicans feel betrayed by their own party. i think that's playing a big part in how this election has played out. the question is there's been two moments where i think
7:23 pm
conservative policies have made america a better place. you talk about ronald reagan, i think that was one of the most recent examples. the other would be the contract with america. these promises that you make about the about judges, about obamacare, balancing the budget, about schools and energy and vets and the military and all these things, would it be a good idea to put it on paper and say to your fellow republicans we're going to do these things, sign the paper. promise the american people, they're tired of being lied to and being betrayed and sign it and say this is my promise if you elect me? >> i mean i'd have to problem doing it. i'm going to do it with the judges because i think it would make people feel better especially certain people within the party. but i think everybody knows first of all obamacare is going to fall of its own weight. in '17 it explodes. it's dead. it's an absolute disaster.
7:24 pm
unfortunately let's say i'm president i have to inherent this mess but we hopefully will terminate it before it explodes. in '17 it's a disaster. i can put it in paper, but we have to do these things. we need the wall. these 16,500 boarder patrol agents endorsed me. first time they ever endorsed a presidential candidate. i said what about the wall, they said we need the wall. we're going to stop the drugs and problems. believe me. >> i hope when the five or six you said a couple i may not like, don't pick that person. pick the guy i would like if you don't mind. >> i think you're going to be very impressed. we'll come up with the right final answer, believe me. >> thank you, donald trump, the presumptive gop nominee. thank you,
