tv Sunday Morning Futures With Maria Bartiromo FOX News May 29, 2016 7:00am-8:01am PDT
go ahead. >> it feels like there's a couple people on my back, but i feel safe. now i need someone to help me get my phone out of my pocket. ♪ good morning, everybody. happy memorial day weekend. i'm maria bartiromo. welcome to "sunday morning futures." the magic number. donald trump finally gts the number to clinch the nomination. is he any closer to selecting a running mate? president obama weighs in on the trump came pain from overseas. big information in the hillary clinton from the state department. how does if impact her race to the white house. headaches over long waits at the tsa security checkpoints. is there any relief in sight as the summer travel season gets under way. we're looking ahead this morning
on "sunday morning futures." we begin with the presidential race. donald trump securing the republican nomination. now they're digging in for the fight come november. the front-runners exchanging nasty jabs over the 2008 economic crash and bill clinton's past sex scandals. a bombshell for the clinton camp. a watch dog says she knowingly broke rules by using a private e-mail account. >> she's as crooked as they come. she's bad news. reports came down that weren't so good. not so good, inspector general's report, not good. but i want to run against hillary. i just want to run against her. >> alabama senator jeff sessions
is senior member of the judiciary committee, armed services committee. good have you on the program. >> thank you, maria. >> let me get your take on the inspector general report released this week. the clinton campaign came out right away and said this is all politics. other secretaries of states have use the gmail accounts. what's your take? >> it's not politics. it's troubling facts. the they investigated the former secretary of state, hillary clinton, and they've concluded she violated a number of rules, significant provisions that require protecting security information. not only that, they found that she did not cooperate. her top people refused to be interviewed in many instances. i think that's a real direct contradiction to what she's been
telling the american people for weeks now. in addition, you've got the fbi investigation. this was just a security review of how she handled it but potential criminal activity continues. >> do you think that's going to impact her campaign? >> i think it will. you know, a lot of things could be said, but to me she's following the same old clinton policies of the 1990s in which they just obstruct and refuse to claim with investigations. claim they're cooperating, when they're not. that kind of lack of integrity has to put a cloud over her effort to be president of the united states. >> and she's been talk a lot about what donald trump has been saying as it relates to immigration, as it relates to trade. i want to talk to you about that because you've done so much work on immigration. we all know immigration is probably one of the most
fundamental issues for any country, for any election, who gets to work in this country, and participate in this democracy is really critical. tell us, given all of the work you've done and the commentary out of donald trump, what immigration looks like in america in a trump presidency. >> well, right now it's totally lawless. hillary clinton said just a few weeks ago that nobody should be deported from america who entered illegally unless they commit a violet crime. that's to the left of president obama's position. she is basically creating a circumstance where nobody would be detained. it's unbelievable. the american people need to know more about her extreek position there. donald trump believes there should be a lawful system of immigration. one we should be proud of. one that allows fairness when
people apply and those who qualify can get in and those who don't, don't. he will ensure that happens. we're going to end the lawlessness. and protect the interest of the american people. >> but how do you walk this balance of ensuring that we have fair trade and lawful immigration but not being seen as an a lagsist. >> this such an extreme justified attack. of course, donald trump believes in trade. he said the immigration system will be -- will have an open door. he's never suggested we would end immigration. we admit 1.1 million a year lawfully now. some categories cannot justified and need to be altered. he's not saying we're going to end immigration. he's not saying we're going to end trade. we're going to defend the interest of the american people. maria, there is no doubt, and
the professor at harvard, top expert in the world, says these immigration flows are pulling down wages of american workers. why could it not? we also are going to be able to establish that the trade agreements have not worked well at all. in fact, have been damaging to the american economy. why should we do another 5,000-page pacific trading agreement president obama wrote when it's not going to benefit us but actually harm manufacturing in america. so, i think that's going to -- this is not against trade and it's not against immigration. it's protecting the legitimate interest of the american working person. >> can you categorically say the ttp will not go through by the end. year? the president says he's going to get this through before december. >> maybe he has some idea of
going around congress, but i don't think he can. but they hinted they were going to try to ram it through in the lame duck session after the election when apparently congress, men and women, don't think they'll be held to account by their constituents who clearly oppose this aagreement. i'm not overconfident it will die, but i think it has very little support now. i think it's been falling. it's falling in europe for european agreement it collapsing there. i think these trade agreements are past their due. >> do you think president obama has able to convince paul ryan there? do you expect the house speaker to endorse donald trump soon? >> well, i would hope so and expect to do that. we don't need to have the speaker hanging out there, in my opinion. i know the speaker believes in
trade agreements. any of them i don't feel he believes he has to read they will. i don't agree with that. the american people have voted on that. they've spoken. donald trump is one. he is crystal clear on this issue. we're not going to have any trade agreements unless it protects the american interests. i think that's reasonable and right. >> look, i think it's really important to get you talking about this, senator. first of all, given all the work you've done over the years on immigration. secondly, because americans are atrade. the american people are not only afraid of -- first of all, they've got foreigners taking their job and now technology. you see companies going to robotics. people do need to understand really the substance of your position given the fact all we see are headlines. hillary clinton is using their headlines. donald trump wants to ban muslims and donald trump said this about various groups. do you think he's going to be able to make the case to the american people come november? >> absolutely. we're going to move forward with
that. tufts university just produced a report and said this trade agreement will reduce 450,000 jobs in america. this is not going -- that's not benefiting america. other data will show how wrong they've been in previous trade agreements. the emperor has no clothes in these trade agreements. we'll be able to show donald trump's instincts and advocacy for decades has been correct. it has hurt the american working person. we have to protect american interests and put america first. >> senator, would you like the job of vice president? >> maria, i've got enough to do right now. donald trump is going to pick a great vice president. somebody that can serve the interest of this can. who can be a good president if called upon, who could be an ally to him personally and
philosophically. and there are some good people out there and i'm sure he'll find the right person. >> we'll be watching. senator, good to have you on the program this morning. thank you. senator jeff sessions. we're looking ahead to the convention and also this weekend. will the nightmares come to an end at tsa checkpoints. congressman peter king will join us in a minute. follow me @mariabartiromo on "sunday futures" straight ahead. a great part of using the usaa car buying service was seeing the different discounts. it had like a manufacturer discount, it had a usaa member discount. all of them were already built in to the low price. i know that i got a better deal than i would have on my own.

nominee. in the room there were people that supported a variety of candidates. donald trump is the nominee. he is actually leading in the real clear politics poll right now. he's leading hillary clinton. we've seen good poll numbers and i think he's a potential winner. >> senator, are you supporting donald trump? >> absolutely. i made it clear during the whole process i was going to support the nominee of the party. once he became the presumptive nominee. that wednesday when everybody else dropped out and i could comment, i made it clear he's my man. i'm a trump delegate to the national convention in cleveland. >> i want to go back to the comments obama made from japan in a minute, but let me stay on this point for a moment, because we know that immigration and
trade have been two issues, the divisions seen very clearly. we know that's donald trump's platform. immigration and trade. can you talk to us about where the common ground might be between those who push back on something like ttp, like house speaker ryan, the transpacific partnership, and donald trump who says, look, this is not going to happen. it's a failure and taking jobs from americans. >> i'm not overly delighted with the transpacific partnership the obama administration negotiated. i think it would be helpful to have agreements with the people that are competing against china might get china to be a better actor, you know. they're not part of the ttp. i think donald trump's position is that we need trade. we just need to negotiate good
agreements, strong agreements that save american jobs. in personal conversations that people like former trade representative rodriguez portman have had with donald trump. he wants us to trade. he just wants a good, strong agreement negotiated. >> sounds like you think there is common ground. any idea when we'll see paul ryan support trump? >> no. but i do believe the chairman of the convention is going to support the nominee. they're working through some things. i think it's good with conversation i've had with my brothers and sisters of congress. president obama said, look, world leaders are rattled by donald trump.
does this concern you? >> you know, it concerns me that the president would take a political message to an overseas forum like that. you know, i can just imagine how ronald reagan or bill clinton would have answered that question as president of the united states. look, i'm over here representing people of america. there's a time for political speeches but a press conference in a foreign country is not such a time. so, i think it's totally inappropriate for president obama to be saying that sort of thing. just like the other day he was at a graduation speech. there were republicans and democrats in that crowd, and yet he starts making jokes about a potential nominee for president. i think his timing and his sense of when it's appropriate to be
political is very tone deaf. >> it's interesting. because this is all about america right now. >> right. >> we're in an election year -- >> he's over there representing you and me. >> we know americans are upset. they don't like the fact their wages haven't moved and they're afraid of people taking their jobs. i was thinking, imagine if there was an election in india, china or japan. and you heard the leader of those countries say, you know, america is really upset with all of this. america is rattled. >> you know, i could imagine people in india might have said, well, so what, we're going to make our own decision about the future of our country. let me just say this, maria, donald trump has surprised a lot of people this year. and i think part of his appeal is that americans see him as a strong leader that's going to stand up for america on an

lots muof reaction to hillary clinton's investigation into the e-mail. a clinton spokesperson blames politics. an investigator who once worked for a republican senator. >> there were reports a few months back suggesting -- affirming the fact that one of the top individuals in that office, the number two official in that office, had a connection -- had formerlily worked for senator grassley, one of senator clinton's chief an tig nis on this issue. >> joining us is peter schweitzer, executive producer of "clinton cash." thank you for being on the program. >> thank you for having me. >> we heard throughout the week, after the inspector general report came out this past week, that clinton actually broke the rules. does not preserve government documents clearly. we heard from her team all week, this is politics. what's your reaction?
>> this is typical. clintons and others do it as well, when they can't deal with the message, when the inspector general said they broke the rules and they knew they were breaking the rules, if you can't deal with a message, you attack the messenger. i think most people have kind of had enough of that strategy. i don't think, frankly, it's not going to work. it's not going to work on the eames. it has not related as it relates to the clinton scandals and whatnot. they have to be frank and honest with the american people. the problem is that, you know, people don't give a lot of credence to what she says. the polls show a large majority of americans don't trust her believers. even if you do start telling the truth, are people actually going to believe you. >> it was somewhat disingenuous to say, this is just politics because other secretary of states have had dpchgmail accou. the fact is, no one has had a
server in their home, other than hillary clinton, so no one could get to her government e-mails. you launched your "clinton cash" at the cannes film festival last weekend. what's the most important sort of charges coming out of your book and this documentary we need to know about? >> i think it shows this pattern of pay to play. people give large amounts of money to the clintons. as secretary of state, they got favorable action from her shortly thereafter. the russia/you iran deal. people are surprised to find out 20% of uranium assets are run by a russian-owned company, which is run by vladimir putin. clinton signed off on that deal. as they were seeking government approval from hillary's
department, eight investors donated a combined $145 million to the clinton foundation. that to me in and of itself needs investigation. at the time they had a matter sitting on her desk at the state department. >> that encapsulates what this story is about. there's massive conflict because she's in this position of power in the government and you're seeing those same people dealing with her donating to the clinton foundation. let me ask you this, that investigation is ongoing. we'll probably see more on the e-mail scandal in the coming months because we know the fbi wants to wrap up this investigation. they'll come out with their reports soon. but the foundation investigation may go past the election, right? >> that's correct, maria. they're related, by the way. i mean, i'm absolutely convinced, why did the clintons
set up a server private from the state department apparatus? they say it's for convenience. that's ridiculous. why did they not want people to have access to their e-mails? i think it's precisely because of these kind of transactions and discussions they had with clinton foundation donors and people paying for speeches. i think the clinton foundation investigation is the more important of the two, that in a sense the e-mail investigation is setting up and leading to the details and as it were, the smoking guns, as we'll see in the clinton investigation. now that you have terry mcauliffe involved as well, i think it shows the fbi is taking this extremely seriously. >> we'll leave it there. the documentary is called "clinton cash." what a mess at airports across the country, meanwhile. passengers fighting long waits at tsa security checkpoint this is hole weekend.
what's causing all of it and does it get fixed? congressman peter king of the homeland security is next. i'm getting dark chocolate and a hint of butterscotch. how about you? i taste - whaaaaaaaaaow. wha wha na na na na na na da ba da ba da ba daw! it's good. jay knows how to keep nice shorts, dad...g. this is what the pros wear. uhhh... that's why he starts his day with those two scoops in heart healthy kellogg's raisin bran. ready to eat my dust? too bad i already filled up on raisins. kellogg's raisin bran. deliciously heart healthy.

tropical depression waiting for a wet mel oral day weekend. storm expected to move slowly north today. overseas, vladimir putin says russia will retaliate for nato placing a missile shield in eastern europe. coming up on "media buzz" we'll get donald trump's tabloid tactics. and my interview with the gun rights activist who blew the whistle on deceptive editing in katie couric's gun control documentary. that's coming up on "media buzz." now back to maria and "sunday morning futures." it's a busy holiday weekend at our nation's airports. the agency tasked with keeping us safe is under fire.
of those long wait times to get through security checkpoints. some travelers waiting as long as three hours, missing their flights. tsa admitting this week as the summer travel season picks up, the problem will not be going away any time soon. republican congressman peter king is joining us from new york, chairman of the subcommittee on counterterrorism and intel. good to see you. thank you for joining us, congressman. >> thank you, maria. >> let me kick it off and thank you for your service to our great country as we remember all of our veterans who died in active service this memorial day weekend. thank you for your service, congressman. >> i was proud to be in the fighting 69th of new york. they've done an especially good job in iraq and afghanistan. a number of deployments, a number of causalities but their over capacity, oversubscribed. >> i want to give an opportunity to give a big shout out to our military men and women this weekend. let me kick it off with the tsa,
congressm congressman. what's going on? >> it was the perfect storm. you had a new director coming in at that time. inspector general report came out showing 85% to 95% of contraband was making it through tsa inspectors. so tsa under the new director really started tightening up their procedures. as a result of that, the lines are getting longer. at the same time, they cut personnel because they hoped -- they assumed 25 million people were going on sign up for precheck program, which wouldn't require as much scrutiny. instead of 25 million, it was only 9 million. so 16 million more passengers than they thought. you have extra scrutiny, extra testing going on. in addition to that, you have tens of millions of more people taking planes, air passengers. it was the perfect storm. and, again, i think tsa was too late in facing up to it.
i do have confidence in admiral turning this around. this is an awfully big ship to turn around. he was in earlier this week, testifying before the homeland security committee. he did, i thought, a good job. so, hopefully it's going to turn around. it's already gotten significantly better at jfk airport in new york. again, the lines are too long. with the memorial day weekend, we're not going to really know. i, again, am assuming the worst but let's hope it gets better, though. >> it's a busy weekend. he says he needs more money, more staff to put a dent in this and cut down on wait times. meanwhile, have you to worry about who's getting through security. we learned this past week a new york city man attempted to join isis, tried to help undercover informants get to syria. what do we know about isis in america right now, congressman? >> i would say, maria, this is a
real threat. it's ignored in the newspapers, they criticize the fbi for surveillanc surveillance. we have a number of isis operatives living in this country. in addition to that, we have lone wolves, people who follow isis on the internet. they're inspired by isis. last year in new york before fourth of july we had five isis operatives arrested in new york city. their intent was to attack fourth of july celebrations. isis has massive use of the internet. one area, they get deranged people, people who respond to these psychotic messages. those are one group. then those committed to islamist, take orders over the internet. we have over 250 americans fighting in syria on behalf of islamist terrorists and almost 10,000 europeans who have gone to syria and they can go back to
europe under the visa waiver program. that's why the nypd, the fbi are working around the clock 24/7. the arrests shouldn't be a surprise. we can expect more. i'm not talking any particular occasion i'm just saying, they're out there. >> so, this individual, 22 years old, arrested in the bronx because he was charged with providing material support to the terrorists. he also tried to travel to the middle east to join isis on two different occasions. where are we in terms of the syrian refugee crisis, congressman? what do you think needs to be done? do you expect any major change to this program before the white house turns over? >> no, not under this president. i don't think we should be allowing syrian refugees into the country. we cannot vet them. there are no birth or marriage certificates. we know isis attempts to smuggle
them into the country. you can have two or three more come into the country and you can have another san bernardino, another brussels. >> thank you for joining us. the trump campaign losing a staff member plus the fallout from the hillary clinton e-mail discussion. all on our panel docket. we'll join the panel next on "sunday morning futures." i know what i can expect from usaa
one adviser out, rick wiley leaving the trump team this past week. he'd only been on board for a few weeks. is this a big deal? ed rollins, a fox news political contributor. joe trippi, former howard dean campaign manager. rick wiley out, big deal? >> paul manafort was brought in, and each has a camp. at the end of the day, i think wiley was part of the manafort campaign, he roughshod people on and trump made a decision. key is -- he ran walker's campaign, and political director of the rnc. as we're now moving to the rncr which isn't a good idea, he was
a guy who knew all the players. >> i thought paul manafort was the guy in charge. >> i'm not sure of that. he has the title but he run the washington operation and the convention and corey runs everything else. corey is the guy that's basically closest to trump. trump is very loyal to his people and trump has people very loyal to him. >> corey lewandowski. how do you see it? >> it's both a good sign and a bad sign. it's always good when you have that kind of friction between two different factions in a campaign to kind of, like, shove one of them -- for the candidate to make a decision, be decisive and move things away. on the other hand, this was somebody who actually understood how a national campaign needs to run and a lot of the mechanics and operatives in these states, the important states, that had to be put together. look, i've been in a camp -- in a presidential campaign where half of the other senior people were out to get me or i was -- i mean, that we had --
>> politics -- >> whenever you see that -- >> politics is an ugly sport. >> you want to end it. it takes a decisive candidate to do that. i'm just not sure this is the right person to do this. >> i'll say this to your point, i think trump made a quick decision, i wanted to take care of those who were there early on, especially those in florida, he made the perfect decision. he's now wrapped up delegates. he's going to california for a big victory and then the conventi convention. they have a lot of other things put in place. >> they're all looking forward to california on june 7th and new jersey. california is the biggy there. this past week we learned hillary clinton, the e-mail scandal. joe, how do you see this report from the inspector general that, in fact, hillary clinton did break rules with her handling of her eame-mails? >> i don't see it having much impact on the primaries in new
jersey or california. look, democrats have basically made their decision about this. i think, look, in the -- republicans have, too. this is definitely going to be a very big and important attacking point from the -- you know, in the general election. legitimately so. she made the mistake. she's going to have to wear it between now and november. but i don't see it having much of an impact at all in the -- in the sanders/clinton race going through california. >> he keeps winning, though, joe. >> well, obama won -- or lost 9 of 12 states at the end. this actually -- and right now, you know, whether she wins california or not, she'll have the delegates she needs before the polls even close in california because of what happens in new jersey and the other states before we even get there. >> i understand that. but she's limping badly. i think to a certain extent she's being exposed, noting a good candidate and poll in
california that has sanders two points ahead of her. you know, sanders goes into the convention with some momentum, doesn't change the end game but i think it hurts her. equally as important with the senior senator in massachusetts running hard that people see as an alternative. po she's a strong candidate, and i think a lot of democrats are saying maybe we've had hillary and the clintons around too long. and i think this issue yesterday clearly bloes her case up that what she was doing was legitimately illegal. >> look, both trump and clinton offer a target-rich virnenviron to their opponent. >> it's true. >> i don't think there's a whole lot of room -- elizabeth warren coming after trump. people are happy about that in the democratic party. they don't see it as another candidate --
>> would she ever choose elizabeth warren as her running mate? >> i don't know the answer to that. >> would she ever choose bernie sanders? >> i don't think so. i think both of it is hers -- generationally i think she would want someone younger and demographically that would pose a bigger problem to trump. for having somebody good on the attack, elizabeth warren has done the best out there. >> democrats are dealing with another crisis we'll talk about. is dnc chairwoman wasserman schultz the week before the big convention. we'll talk about that next. "sunday morning futures" continues.
supporters believe that she tipped the scale on o everything from debate and the way that the system works. i think, you know, that's a reality. i have never seen a chair be changed at this point in the process, and i think it's possible that she may not be the chair moving forward. that's the decision. he has to decide in the best interest that i don't want to be a distraction, but i want to move aside and let somebody else help unify the paertd. otherwise, i don't see any -- >> they're friends. >> yeah, i don't see that happening. >> yeah, how damaging was that. >> and she in particular. >> she is supporting the
competitor. >> if she wanted to do the right thing, she would step back aside and focus on the other. i don't think that she is going to be successful. >> terry said that he is cancelling plans to be a distraction. >> she, and we appreciate and it's always been at the center and it just reminds me of the party and clintons that they rented out the bedroom, air force one. no one is shocked by this. >> look, there are allegations and no named sources, and we don't know. i think that he has done the right thing. why go to ohio and be a
distraction. they have tough races and they don't need a lot of questions from flib elanybody else. >> yeah it's been a tough week for clinton whether more walk around -- >> and that's true. what's so fascinating about this election year is that shehere i tough week that trump is scoring and he is on the attack against who, the governor of new mexico martinez. here you have new cycles that are definitely painful on the democrat and he is stepping on it. >> a week ago or a month ago was about the republican and the bad convention. now he has some momentum and she is struggling on the other side. by the time we get to the convention, we're going to have a knock downfall out. >> okay. short break and then more ahead for the week on "sunday morning
o ryan has to get off and get the party behind him. s he is the only stand out. >> so you're waiting on him? >> yeah. >> at what do you think? >> can we pick the same thing? >> yeah. >> i don't know who ryan is doing. trump is going to be the nominee. i am looking for him to rally and sort of try to bring some of the caucus over to trump. if he does not do that, that starts to point to a more difficult convention and unity that trump is going to put together. i don't think that the attack helped him. >> yeah, you have to believe that it happens before june 7th. >> yay, if he does not, trump is forced to run against congress and washington where he is comfortable and that's not good
for republicans. thanks for joining us and have a great rest o of the weekend. i will see you later on this week with mornings are maria on 6:00 to 9:00 eastern on fox netwo network. the buzz continues right now. on buzz media sunday sex scandals and donald trump turns to the clinton trails of the 90s and takes heat from the media. >> donald trump bringing back a long ago theory as he hammers away on clinton. will saying a lie even matter? >> i mean donald trump like the last couple of days brought it up with shaun and then 20 years after the fact. >> and then ben foster. >> yeah, that's incredible. >> and then the suicide of clinton and one white house
