tv Fox News Sunday With Chris Wallace FOX News May 29, 2016 11:00am-12:01pm PDT
by the way, we want to remind you that shortly we will take you live when donald trump speaks to rolling thunder here honoring our vets in d.c. meantime, here's chris wallace. we'll see you in a few minutes. i'm chris wallace. donald trump clinches the gop nomination for president, but his attacks on fellow republicans continue. ♪ >> poor mitt romney. poor mitt. he choked like a dog. many of the people i competed against have now endorsed me. no, jeb hasn't done it yet. he will get a burst of energy, and he will do it, believe me. >> as he sets his sights on the general election. >> crooked hillary. she's as crooked as they come. >> today a preview of trump's strategy going forward with campaign manager corey lewandoski. it's a "fox news sunday" exclusive. then, the scathing report from the state department inspector general on hillary
clinton's use of a private e-mail server. >> it was still a mistake. if i could go back, i would do it differently. >> we'll discuss what clinton did and the political fallout with two key members of the house and senate intelligence committees. democratic congressman adam schiff and republican senator james lankford. plus, president obama calls out trump while meeting with foreign leaders. we'll ask our sunday panel whether the president will help or hurt democrats in this election. all right now on "fox news sunday." and hello, again, on this memorial day weekend from fox news in washington. well, it's been another roller coaster week for donald trump. he clinched the gop nomination, appeared to sign on to a debate with bernie sanders, was targeted by president obama and attacked fellow republicans,
despite calls from party leaders to unify. just another week in trump world. joining me now from new york is trump campaign manager corey lewandowski. corey, let's start with the highly anticipated trump/sanders debate. at first trump said he would love to debate sanders. then he backed out, saying that it was inappropriate to debate the second-place democrat, which he knew sanders was from the start. here's what sanders had to say about all that. >> trump claims to be a real tough guy, pushes people around. hey, donald, come on up, let's have a debate about the future of america. >> corey, as the senator asked, what is trump afraid of? >> well, so, hey, first, thank you for having me on. and second, i want to thank all of our veterans as we celebrate memorial day, or remember memorial day. but as you know that that question that was asked of mr. trump was asked in jest during a jimmy kimmel interview, and he said, sure, if they want to pay me enough money, as a joke, tongue in cheek, i'd be happy to
debate bernie sanders. the bottom line is the democratic committee is stealing the election from bernie sanders. the party bosses will not allow him to be the nominee. hillary clinton will be the nominee and we are squarely focused on beating her come november. so for us, if hillary clinton is not going to did i de a bit bernie sanders because he is not going to be the nominee, we are solely focused with making sure the american people know that donald trump will be the next president of the united states and lay out our vision and not waste our time debating bernie sanders when he's not going to be the democratic nominee. >> all right. trump wasn't just fighting democrats this week, he was also taking on republicans. for instance, he went after the republican governor of new mexico, susana martinez. here he is. >> your governor has got to do a better job. she's not doing the job. hey, maybe i'll run for governor of new mexico! i'll get this place going. >> corey, why on earth would the
now republican nominee, since he's clinched the nomination, why would he call out the popular governor of a swing state like new mexico who just happens to be the head of the republican governors association? >> well, here's what happened, chris, and you know this. every time mr. trump goes to speak somewhere, he lays out the problems with that given location, whether it's in ohio or for michigan or an indiana. our country is a mess rightour deals are killing us, people are worse off now than they were 10 and 12 and 15 years ago. and those statistics that he outlined are the statistics of the state of new mexico. and what he is say is, as the president of the united states, he will bring jobs back to our country. he will make sure americans are first. that doesn't matter if we're in new mexico or indiana or if we're in michigan. people are hurting and we need a president that's going to bring our jobs back. so, outlining the economy of a specific location is something that he has done across is the country everywhere we've gone because we need to highlight the problems that we have and what we're going to do to fix those problems. >> but i think you would agree that former house speaker newt
gingrich has been very supportive of your campaign. here's what he had to say about trump's comments this week. >> i think the attack he made on governor martinez last night was very, very destructive. i think it sent all the wrong signa signals. you particularly don't want to see a candidate who needs to get stronger with latinos and women attack a latina woman republican governor. >> gingrich went on to say that trump sometimes "goes off the deep end." that doesn't sound like something you want in a president. >> well, chris, what you have here is, there was no attack on a latino or a woman governor. what this was was laying out the economic perspective of what the state of new mexico's doing. and he's saying we need to do a better job. that's what our country needs is we need to create jobs, we need to get more people back to work, we need to build a wall, stop illegal immigration. these are things that are said everywhere we go. so you know, donald trump is winning with latinos. if you look at the last poll, he's winning with hispanics.
if you look at the polls, he's doing very well with women. he has a much better -- >> wait, wait -- >> he's so close that in california, the state of california's now in play and hillary clinton is scared to death because donald trump's -- >> wait, he's not winning with hispanics. his numbers are hugely under water with both. and on the specific question of this, he didn't just say, well, gee, things could be better in new mexico. he said -- i'm looking at the quote here -- she, the governor, is not doing the job. he's going to go around the country saying that the republican governors of various states aren't doing their job? >> it's not about being a republican or a democrat. it's about doing what's right for the country. and if this was said in the state of nevada, if that would have been a democrat female governor, this wouldn't be an issue. it's about the economy. so you guys want to make a story about something that doesn't exist here. let's get it right. we need to do a better job. we need to stop illegal immigration, put people back to work, cut taxes. that's what this is about. anything else is not the case. but the bottom line is, our
country's in trouble, and if we don't put someone in the white house who can create jobs and get things done, our country will deteriorate to a point where the middle class will disappear, and we can't have that. >> bottom line, do you stand by -- does he stand by his comment that susana martinez could be doing a better job, is not doing everything she can to help the people of new mexico? >> well, this is not a republican issue. it's not a democrat issue. >> i'm ask about susana martinez. >> we absolute lay stand by our statement that the state of new mexico could be doing better. and what we need to do is we need to stop illegal immigrants from coming across the border illegally. we're going to build that wall so american citizens have a chance to have their jobs first and not have them taken from someone from outside the country who doesn't belong here. >> where do things stand with getting house speaker paul ryan to endorse trump? and how worried are you and how worried is trump about the possibility, the continued talk about a third-party conservative run, perhaps by mitt romney? >> well, look, a third-party run by any candidate is a complete disaster and you're handing over the white house to the democrats, which means four or
five potential u.s. supreme court justices that hillary clinton would have a chance to appoint. if she does that, you can say good-bye to the second amendment, amongst other things, right? you can say good-bye to your rights. so, the bottom line is if mitt romney decides to get into the race, number one, he's a failed candidate. number two, he's failed twice and will fail again if he does run, but what he will do to the detriment of the country is allow a democrat to appoint four or five supreme court justices that will be devastating long term to our country. so, if mitt wants to do that, it's a failure. >> and what about paul ryan? >> number two is think of all the people who have come out in the last two weeks and endorsed donald trump -- u.s. senators, congressmen, governors. we are growing this party bigger, we are bringing more people into it. paul ryan and mr. trump have had a conversation and continue to develop that relationship. they had a great meeting in washington, d.c., where they talked about what was important to both of them. they agree on many, many issues. the bottom line is donald trump is now the head of the republican party as the republican nominee. and what we know is that he brings people together. and him and paul ryan are going to have a great relationship,
because at the end of the day, the choice is binry. you either have hillary clinton in the white house or donald trump. and i think that we know that for the american people, paul ryan and donald trump are going to work very well together to cut taxes and renegotiate our trade deals. >> all right, new subject. you're in charge of the team that is going to vet vice president al candidates for donald trump. he said almost three weeks ago that he's down to a short list of five or six candidates. are you really down to that small a universe? >> let me be clear, there's one person in this country who's going to pick the next vice president of the united states as a running mate, and that's going to be donald trump. my role and others is to make sure that he has the resources and knowledge to make that decision. and once he's made that decision, you know, he's very comfortable with it. we've begun this process. we started to shrink down that pool. and what we are doing right now is making sure that we've done our due diligence so that when he chooses the person that he wants, we can give him the pros and cons of each of those individuals and he will always make the final decision. so, we feel very good where we are in the process.
>> but you're not prepared to say at this point you're down to five candidates? >> i can say that the list is very small, and we have a very good understanding of who those handful of individuals will be, and ultimately, the decision will be made by mr. trump. >> meanwhile, your campaign is far behind clinton's when it comes to campaign infrastructure, state organization, polling, data, analytics, and there even seems to be some confusion about which super pac, outside group, that trump would like people to contribute money to. isn't that a problem? >> it's not, because here's what you have. you have the mind-set of hillary clinton, where you have to have hundreds -- you know, she's got 800 people on staff. we've got 70 people on staff, right? they think that bigger is better. that's the mind-set that the clinton administration will take to the federal government. you know, you juxtapose that with the trump mind-set, which is smaller, leaner, more efficient and better results. that's the mind-set you need for the federal government. so what you've seen from us, as
mr. trump dispatched 16 candidates in the primary. we've spent less money and had better results than all of them. hillary clinton spent over $200 million in this race and mr. trump has spent $50 million in the case and we've got better results. what you need is people who can be effective and efficient and making sure that we're getting things done. and we don't need to grow this campaign to 700 or 800 people like the clinton campaign. that's ridiculous. what you need to do is be efficient. so in our state operations, we're very efficient. and what we've seen is success time and time and time again with a smaller, leaner, more efficient team, because that's the way we would run the government, should he be given the privilege of being president of the united states. >> let's talk about that small, efficient team, because there are continuing reports about battles inside the trump campaign, you and the campaign chairman, paul manafort, are said to be at each other's throats. the national political director was just fired. there was a story in "the new york times" this week that some of the staffers are worried or suspect that per happen they're
being bugged inside the trump tower. respectfully, this sounds less like a presidential campaign and more like "game of thrones." >> you know what this is, this is media hype. i can tell you this, that paul and i have a fantastic relationship. we work together very closely every day. we're making decisions together every day for not just this campaign but for the future of what we want to accomplish here. and it's very important to know, very, very important to know that there is no sunlight between paul and i. every decision is made together. we talk 10, 12, 15 times a day. we each have our own respective responsibilities in the campaign and we're moving forward. the media wants to perpetuate this story that there's infighting amongst the campaign. the bottom line is we're winning. and this week, donald trump became the republican nominee by securing more than 1,237 delegates. it was done two weeks ahead of schedule. that was done with paul and i working together to make sure that those unbound delegates came over and supported mr. trump. and so, we're weeks ahead of where we thought we were going to be, thinking we wouldn't have the nomination wrapped up until june 7th. we could only do that as a team.
this team is very cohesive, it's small, it's lean, it's efficient, and it's going to come right at hillary clinton for this presidency come november. >> and in ten seconds, is there any bugging going on at the trump tower? >> i think that's a lot of speculation. i don't think that's the case at all and i think we're very happy with how our offices are set up. >> corey, thank you. thanks for sharing part of your holiday weekend with us. we appreciate it, sir. >> thank you. up next, we'll bring in our sunday group to discuss how trump is preparing for the general election now that he's clinched the gop nomination. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪

you offended? and two, now that obama's approval rating is back up over 50% for the first time in a long time, how effective do you expect him to be for the democrats in this election? >> well, he'll be effective to the extent that his approval rating remains high. i mean, there is a very high correlation between an incumbent president's approval rating and the success of his party's nominee in the fall. so, if that stays up, that's a significant plus in secretary clinton's favor as she runs here. whether he will be -- how effective he'll be out on the stump is everybody's guess, but the approval rating does correlate with winning, and that's obviously a key factor here. and as to whether or not i was offended, no, because the custom of politics stopping at the water's edge is long gone. besides that, he got a question which he answered in a way that trump managed easily to turn into a talking point in his own favor, everyone saying he wants the foreign leaders to be rattled because they've been getting a free ride off us too
long. so, that's all good. that's a negotiator's stance. >> trump not only took incoming from the president, but also democratic senator elizabeth warren of massachusetts, over his statements in 2016 that the housing bubble burst, he'd be able to make some money. here she is. >> and routes for people to get thrown out of their house. a small, insecure money grubber who doesn't care who gets hurt, so long as he makes a profit off it. >> well, trump had, susan, an answer for that. he said that warren has a big mouth and he called her pocahontas, referring to the fact that she once claimed american indian heritage. >> still claims. she's never backed off that. she says she still believes that to be the case. you know, she figured out how to do something that eluded 16 republican rivals, which is how to get under donald trump's skin. and she's not yet endorsed hillary clinton. she's the only woman senator who
hasn't endorsed hillary clinton, but she is doing hillary clinton a world of good by engaging with donald trump and making him respond. i think she has figured out how to urk him. >> and erking is good. >> it's good when you're running against somebody and want to get him a little off her game. i'm not sure how valuable it is to call her pocahontas. doesn't seem that does a lot of damage. she doesn't seem to mind that. >> how about bigma? >> well, she's somebody who has demonstrated an ability to throw a punch. and that's to the good of the democrats, it seems to me. >> george, i want to go slightly bigger picture than big mouth and pocahontas, because trump was asked this week where he sees the gop in five years, and he said, i love that question. and he said i see it as a workers' party, of people who have not gotten a raise in 15 years, i think he said, who feel angry and left behind.
could he possibly be reshaping the republican party? >> i think that's what he's saying. 50 weeks ago when he began running for president, he had a verbal tick that he subsequently suppressed. he used to be talking to an arena full of people, he'd say "the republicans say this" or "you republicans say" this and that. that's perfectly natural for someone who's changed his party registration at least five times in the last 20 years or so. when asked recently about his many deviations from conservatism, he sort of shrugged and said it's called the republican party, not the koervetive party, so it's clear he intends to not make it a conservative party -- at least as conservatism has been defined. if he means to make it by a workers' party, the party of those downscale, meaning non college educated, white voters, he can do that, but that's nowhere near a majority. now, he may be counting on independents. a decade ago, 30% of americans said they're independents. today 42% do.
we're taking you live to donald trump speaking at this year's rolling thunder event here in washington, d.c., honoring our veterans, our p.o.w.s, our m.i.a.s. he's just arrived and begun his speech. >> so many friends and so many family. and look, memorial day so importa important. it's our day, and we have to be very proud of it, and we are very proud of it. and it's an honor to be with you. thank you very much. i appreciate it. so, rolling thunder. i will say, no matter where i go, rolling thunder. look at all these bikers. do we love the bikers? yes. we love the bikers. but all over the place, no matter where i go, there's bikers! and they come with the bikers and the bikes are all over. we've had cases where we'd have like, i'd make a speech and we'd have 500 bikes. we'd have 1,000 bikes.
and i said, what are they all doing here? and my people would say they're here to protect you, mr. trump. it's an amazing thing. it's an amazing thing. and i want to tell you, some of these people are tough and some of the guys i see on that bike, i'll tell you what, they're rough. and i get out and i shake their hands, and they are -- i'll tell you, there is love, there is love, and it's an incredible feeling. and that's why i wanted to be with you today, and i really appreciate being invited. because we're with you 100%. we're with you 100%. 100%. thank you. he just said, "and we're with you 100%." well, we're going to do some things. we can't have hillary clinton be our president, that i can tell you. that's all we need. that's all we need. and just so you know, speaking of that, as you know, she wants to abolish the second amendment. remember that.
and we are going to protect our second amendment, every little inch of our second amendment. and the nra, as you saw, the nra just came out last week and they endorsed donald trump sooner than they've ever endorsed any candidate ever before. so that was an honor. and they are amazing people. amazing people. so, we have a lot of things that we have to straighten out in our country. number one, we have to rebuild our military. it's been decimated. it's been decimated. when you think of the great general patton and all of our great generals, they're spinning in their graves when they watch, we can't beat isis. we're going to beat isis. we're going to knock the hell out of them. we're going to end it. we're going to end it. remember that. so, we're going to rebuild our military. we're going to make it bigger and bigger and better and
stronger than ever before. we have no choice, we have to do it. and by the way, it's the single cheapest thing we can do, believe me. so, we're going to rebuild our military and we're going to take care of our veterans. our veterans have been treated so badly in this country. you have a secretary that last week said, no, the wait time doesn't matter. forget about wait time. i know people, and i've gotten to know so many vets, and we just raised almost $6 million for the vets, because i didn't do a television show. i said, let's do this, and we're announcing on tuesday all of the groups that we put up this money, and we raised this tremendous amount of money, because we love the vets. and that's going to be announced on tuesday. all of the groups that have gotten the money will be announced on tuesday. we're having a big press conference and it's going to be great and it's going to be a great day.
but we have to take care of our vets. and in many occasions, illegal immigrants are taking much care, really, are taking much better care by this country taking care of than our veterans. and that's not going to happen, okay? it's not going to happen. we're not going to allow that to happen any longer. now, we have so many different cases, folks, where you look at what's going on. in the border, when i announced on june 16th that i was running for president -- by the way, who the hell would have thought this was going to happen, right? right? remember, they said june 16th -- i watched all these pundits. by the way, the press, liars. they're the worst. they are the worst. low lives. these are some of the worst, most dishonest people. i actually had a story today. it was sort of interesting, somebody wrote. but you know, i have 73 people on my staff. and i won long ahead of
schedule. you know, i was supposed to be going to cleveland and july, and it was going to be a big fight and they didn't know if i could win then. they even talked about having a second convention in august, something that nobody ever even heard about. and look what happened. i won -- we won. we, we. i'm just the messenger. but we won, and hillary can't even beat bernie! she can't beat him. and beating bernie would not be tough, in all fairness, although he is right about one thing, trade. he is right about trade. he can't do anything about it but with do agree on one thing, trade. our country is being ripped off so badly on trade. we're going to make the greatest trade deals you've ever seen. we're going to make our country rich again, strong again. it's going to be america first. not all these other countries that don't even like us. it's going to be -- it's going to be america first.
we're going to be the smart country again. we're not going to be the dummies that the world takes advantage of. even in our military. you've been seeing me. we defend so many countries. we defend japan. we defend germany. we defend saudi arabia. we defend south korea. when the maniac in north korea raises his head, we send our ships, our planes, we're all ready to go. but we're not properly taken care of, folks. and this isn't 40 years ago where we could do it. we're the highest taxed nation in the world. by the way, my tax plan, we bring it down so much, especially for business and for the middle-income people. we bring the numbers down so low, lower than any other candidate running, even the ones that have already been vanquished. we have the lowest tax -- we have a great plan. i don't care about the low -- we have a great plan. it's going to put people back. they're going to want to have incentive to go out and work and make a lot of money and have great jobs, and we don't have great jobs. if you look at the jobs, the
unemployment rate, the real number is 20%. and it could be more than that. because people that look for jobs and give up, they're considered statistically employed. folks, no more. we are going to create jobs. we're not going to let mexico and all these other countries take our companies. they're taking our -- you look at carrier, you look at nabisco, you look at ford. hundreds of other companies, they're moving to mexico. they're moving to other nations. and our people are left jobless. and we don't manufacture things. i look -- we just won the primary systems in new york, in pennsylvania, in maryland, all over. maryland, connecticut, rhode island, delaware, everywhere. we had a big streak. and then indiana. oh, do we love indiana, because that was going to be the firewall for my opponent, and it turned out to be the firewall for me. we won in a landslide. of course, i want to thank the great bobby knight. it's not bad when you have bobby knight, right? bobby knight in indiana.
so, we're not going to let it happen anymore that a carrier can announce very routinely 1,4 hundred people, you're fired, we're moving to mexico. they want to do that and there are consequences. and i'll tell you what the consequences are. every time they make an air conditioner, we're going to have strong borders -- and by the way, we are going to have a wall, and i mean, a real wall. we are going to have a wall. who's going to pay for the wall? not even a doubt, by the way. you know, mexico -- and i have no problem, i love mexico. i love the mexican people. so many of them, i do business with them, there are thousands of them, their leaders are too smart for obama and too smart for our leaders. our leaders are selling us down the tubes. so, when carrier goes to mexico, every time they make an air conditioning unit and try and
sell it across our now very strong borders, you know what's going to happen? 35% tax. and you know what's going to happen then? they're not going to want to move. when they know that's going to happen, they're not moving. because we're losing our guts. we're losing our companies. we're losing our jobs. we're losing manufacturing. when i was campaigning in new york and other places -- i look at upstate new york, out on the island, places i've known all my life. i grew up in new york. you look at these states, it's absolutely barren. you see these factories that were vibrant 20 years ago. and by the way, bill clinton signed nafta, probably the worst deal economically that this country's done in 100 years. nafta has single-handedly wiped out much -- really, single-handedly wiped out so much of our manufacturing. it's moved to mexico and other places. so, hillary is -- she doesn't know anything about jobs.
she doesn't know anything about jobs. she thinks the v.a. is doing good. did you see her statement a couple months ago? the veterans administration's doing a good job. if she thinks they're doing a good job, then i've been wasting a lot of time, because i know the vets and they are miserable with what's happening. i have a vet that came up to me -- he waited seven days to get to see a doctor! and after seeing the doctor, the doctor said, i'm sorry, i can't take care of you now, i'm going vacation. and this is happening all over. and you're losing -- thousands of people are dying. it's hard to believe, even. our vets, our most cherished people. thousands of people are dying waiting in lines to see a doctor. that is not going to happen anymore. and if there's a wait, we're going to give the right for those people to go to a private doctor or even a public doctor and get themselves taken care of and we're going to pay the bill. and that should have happened a long time ago. that should have happened a long
time ago. so, we're going to have great trade deals. china made $505 billion in terms of trade deficit with this country. think of it. it's almost like a miracle. for years it's been going on. $300 billion trade deficit, $400 billion, $500 billion trade deficit. you would almost say how can our country even survive? but right now, we're sitting in a bubble. we're right now in big trouble. we owe $19 trillion. we made a bad -- and thank you for that sign. look at that man. you are definitely a trump man. thank you. i appreciate it. but we're going to bring it back, and we're going to bring it back fast. and frankly, when nato -- you know, you look at the 28 nato countries. many of those countries are not living up to their obligation of paying us. so, we're protecting nato. we're protecting these countries. and they're not paying up. we're protecting japan. and i love japan! we're going to continue to protect japan, hopefully.
but you always have to be prepared to walk, folks. you know, you always have to be prepared to walk. we don't want to, but one of the generals was on television the other day. donald trump said he's going to protect japan. and i do want that. but he said, we pay. they don't understand. japan pays 50% of the cost of the protection. doesn't mr. trump know that? japan is paying 50% of the cost. now, you know this, if he says 50%, it's much less. but when i heard that from one of the dishonest reporters that i do business with -- these are the worst -- but when i heard that, i just asked a stupid question. i said, well, let me ask you, they're paying 50% of the cost to defend themselves. why aren't they paying 100%, right? you know the kind of money we're talking about? then they wonder why this country is poor. because we're a debtor nation. so, think of this, saudi arabia. we protect saudi arabia. before the oil went down and now they're still making a fortune, they're still making plenty --
before the oil went down, saudi arabia was making $1 billion a day. we protected them. they wouldn't be there if we gave up on them 20 years ago or 10 years ago. like a week later, whatever it might be, they'd be gone. saudi arabia. why aren't they paying us at least what the hell it costs? we have leases where we actually pay rent! so, it's going to be a whole different ball game. and let me tell you, we are going to actually get along with these countries. we will get along with them. and china's an example. the biggest bank in the world is a tenant of mine in one of my buildings. i get along with them great. the bank of america building in san francisco, i own it with a group. it's a great building, through china. 1290 avenue of the americas, own it. one of the biggest buildings in manhattan. i owned all this stuff. i got it through china indirectly, and it was through war. it wasn't through friendship. believe me it was not easy. . it was not pleasant. because they want to take whatever we have. you take a look at the
intellectual property that china is stealing from our country, hundreds of billions of dollars a year. we don't even mention it. we don't even talk about it. so, those days are going to change. and here's the thing, we'll get along better with china. in fact, they just renewed their lease in the building. i said, are you sure they want to renew the lease? i've become a little hostile. but see, what people don't know, i am not angry at china and i'm not angry at japan. they send us hundreds of thousands, millions of cars. we give them nothing. you look at a trade imbalance. we send them beef, and they don't even want to take the beef, right? we send them wheat. they send us cars. the numbers are staggering. now, i'm not angry at japan, and i'm not angry at mexico. they're killing us on the border and they're killing us with trade. so many companies moving to mexico. it's the new china, smaller version, but the new china. i'm not angry at china! i'm angry at our president for
being a grossly incompetent president of the united states to allow this to happen. to allow this to happen. so, folks, in a nutshell, it's an honor to be here. and i'll tell you what really amazes me. i thought this would be like dr. martin luther king, where the people would be lined up from here all the way to the washington monument, right? unfortunately, they don't allow them to come in. and you have all these people on the roads and they're all waving and going crazy. we've got to do this for next year where rolling thunder allows everybody to be here. because i'm telling you, coming in, i said this, coming in, hundreds of thousands of people, the most beautiful bikes i've ever seen in my life. we do like those bikes. the most beautiful bikes. we've got to get those people here. and i know one thing, you're going to all behave yourselves, right? and i know another thing, there won't be any paid agitators in
this group, okay? you know, i make a speech -- i made a speech the other day. we had 25,000 people. and then you have 200 people outside, and they're like professionals, you know, the signs are made professionally, they have the masks, the whole thing, you know. whenever you see a mask -- by the way, the police told me this -- do we love our police? do we love our police? okay, you'd better believe -- law enforcement does a great job. but they told me, any time you see a mask, they're all professionals. and there are so many people with masks on because they go from one to the other, they agitate. and i said, boy, i'll bet there aren't going to be agitators -- look at all these people. i'll bet tlb there are no agitators in this crowd. if there are agitators in this crowd, nah. remember, be very nice to them, folks. i'm saying that on the record. i'm saying that for the press. be very nice. don't hurt them. don't hurt them. you know, i've had some fun. we started -- we had the biggest rallies by far, far bigger than
bernie sanders', far bigger. i mean, look at today. they say you have 600,000 people essentially here trying to get in, but that's not going to happen. but they say you have 600,000. so, we have these tremendous rallies. nobody ever talks about it. they don't talk about it. on the other side, they talk. i had a rally where i had 18,000 people. bernie had 7. with my rally, they said donald trump made a speech today, blah, blah, blah, that was it. with bernie's rally -- same time -- they said, bernie sanders had a tremendous crowd of 7,000. i said, i had 11,000 people more than he did! they don't mention it. and they won't mention the kind of massive crowds that we have here today. and these are great people, great americans. these are unbelievable people. so, i just want to tell you folks, our country doesn't win anymore. we don't win with military, we don't win with health care, we don't win with borders, we don't win with education, we don't win with anything. and by the way, we are going to repeal and replace obamacare.
just remember that. and we certainly don't win for our veterans. it's going to change, folks. we're going to win so much that you're all going to come -- and i have friends in this crowd that are big bikers, people you would least suspect, and they are bikers, and they love it, and they're proud of it. but we are going to start winning again. and we're going to win so much. we're going to win, win, win. we are going to win so much. some of you, my friends in particular, will call me up, and they'll go, mr. president, please, don't win so much. it's not nice. you're beating everybody. you're beating all the countries. you're beating too many jobs, too much success, too much wealth. mr. president, don't win, please. and i'm going to say, we're going to keep winning, because we are going to america great again. and i'll tell you, we're going to make it greater than ever before and we can do it. thank you, everybody. thank you!
thank you, everybody! we love you! thank you. ♪ >> you've been listening live to donald trump speaking at rolling thunder, a very important patriotic memorial event on this memorial day weekend, focusing on our military, our vets, p.o.w.s, those missing in action. a raucous crowd, seems very receptive. his praise of our veterans and police as well. >> police and veterans, among others. it was interesting, though when you think about who he's going to talk to, one of the headlines out of the beginning of his campaign was he said he didn't like p.o.w.s, he didn't like people who didn't get caught. now he's at an organization about that and folks loved him. >> we heard a great response for him, very supportive of the military. i didn't see any protesters. >> and he talked about that and sort of his anger towards the protesters and what he thought should have happened. >> yes, he did. and listen, it was a big event,

as i say crooked hillary, crooked hillary. she's as crooked as they come. >> donald trump piling on after the state department ig report found hillary clinton violated the rules in using a private e-mail server. we're back now with the panel. well, let's take a look at how clinton's numbers have dropped since the story first broke back in march of 2015 about her private e-mail and personal server. back then, it's interesting to note, 47% had a favorable view of her, 50% unfavorable, basically even. now that's down to 37% favorable, 61% unfavorable.
same with whether she's honest and trustworthy. in march of 2015, 44% said yes, 52% said no. now it's 31% to 66%, which raises the question, brit, does the ig report do any damage to clinton or has the damage already been done? >> well, the damage has been done, but political campaigns are fluid and people's opinions can shift and change. this, however, i think helps to cement in place the notion that she cannot be trusted. and it's just one more step in that direction. and you know, this is an unusual campaign, chris, in which each of these candidates, trump and clinton, seem to be each other's best hope. and you know, the best -- really, what's striking about the recent rise in the polls of donald trump is that it coincides with a period of bad news for hillary clinton and her vulnerabilities become his possibilities, and this is just a further example of that. it's remarkable. >> we asked you for questions for the panel and we got a bunch about the ig report.
guygracie senter wrote "if she did this when in the state department, what will she do when she's president"? and john garnett writes "does anyone really think hillary will be indict snead will she be process cultured or will loretta lynch give her a get out of jail free card?" susan? >> i don't think we know what the results of the fbi investigation are going to be. legal analysts have been skeptical that she'll be indicted, but you never know where investigations go. and while the inspector general's report is very critical, i don't think it does new damage to hillary clinton. an fbi conclusion that was more serious i think could do some real damage to her. you know, it's interesting, she's going to be the first woman nominated by a major party to be president. women candidates usually have to deal with whether they're strong enough. she's fine on that. competent. people think she's competent. this honest and trustworthy issue is her achilles' heel in
her election. it's an issue she really needs to figure out a way to address, to at least improve those numbers to some degree. >> susan, do you think the colin powell defense gets her off the hook? >> no. because number one, colin powell is not running for president, she is. and number two, i think all of us of a certain age understand that use of e-mail has changed, changed even in the period from when colin powell left the state department. >> 12 years ago. >> yeah -- >> and policy changed -- >> and then policy changed. but we know that hillary became -- >> the server. >> so, number one, there are differences in the context. and number two, he's not running for anything. >> and as i said, i'm not going to vote for him for president anyway. meanwhile, the democratic primary race continues, even though clinton has declared victory over bernie sanders. here they both are. >> i will be the nominee for my party, chris. that is already done, in effect. there is no way that i won't be. >> just a tinge of arrogance
there, i think. and i kind of think that on june 7th, the people of california will have a message for secretary clinton. >> george, how much damage is bernie sanders doing to hillary clinton, and what? and it certainly seems possible from these polls what if he actually beats her in california? >> well, it will be 2008 all over again. indeed, his persistence in this campaign is an exercise in what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. in 2008, california came late, as it always does, and elect -- the nomination process was over. he persisted against barack obama, beating him by 400,000 points, eight votes. handily didn't make a particle of difference and didn't prevent the party from becoming united. people say why is sanders doing this? first of all, look at him. he's having the time of his life. huge crowds for a back-bencher from vermont. so, that's part of it. second, people say, well, yes,
but he's not being a good democrat. this is the first time he's ever run as anything as a democrat. so his attachment to the party might be slight. third in 1960, barry goldwater, junior senator from arizona, went to the podium at the chicago convention and said, let's grow up, conservatives. if you want to take back this party, and i think we can, let's go to work. he's the nominee four years later. sanders could have been the nominee four years later or any time, but he may have the sense that barry goldwater did, that there's a movement out there that needs fueled to transform the party, and he may do it. >> do you think he's hurting her by staying -- i understand the argument that she did this to obama, so it's certainly right. do you think it's hurting her for him staying in the race? >> i don't think it's doing lasting damage. i think months from now, people won't remember this. >> i was going to ask you about th that. how confident are you or how likely do you think it is that sanders in the end gets on the podium and holds hands with
hillary clinton, holds them up, and much more importantly, what about his millions of supporters? >> 80/20 he gets up on stage. she gets the lion's share of his voters. some of them might stay home. in the end, it doesn't really matter. what does matter is this authenticity and honesty issue. look what we had today. you had the spokespeople for two campaigns lying. corey lewandowski saying they're winning with hispanics, and the spokesperson for hillary clinton repeating her misleading statements about the e-mail over and over and over again. and it's why we now have a situation where among independents, people who are undecided who to vote for, the unfavorability rating for both clinton and trump is minus 74 percentile. so, the biggest casualty in this campaign is the truth. neither one of those candidates are worth trusting. and campaigns aren't just about who's going to win on election day. campaigns are about how we're going to be led. and no matter who wins this
race, we'll have somebody in the white house who has shown again and again and again they can't be trusted. >> what do you think of that, brit? >> i think that's what a lot of voters feel, that the choices -- you know, everybody's always saying and always did, going back to 1960. i remember my parents just saying nixon and kennedy, what a terrible choice we have. so, this is a quadrennial perennial, if you will. but to this extent, it's greater than i've ever seen it. i think most people believe that the top two finishers in both parties are unacceptable choices. and at a time when we badly need a successful presidency and a serious and able leader, we're not likely to get one from either candidate. >> shortly after the e-mail scandal broke out, i spoke with one of her senior people and democrats and people close to clinton were saying this is all about -- hiding e-mail is all about blurring the lines with the clinton foundation. this senior official sat in her office and told me it really doesn't matter. trust doesn't matter. because i was saying this is going to bring down her trust figures, and either she wins the
election, it will make it so she can't lead. and a senior official, a longtime friend of hillary clinton, says trust doesn't matter. bill clinton won against bob dole. obviously, trust does matter. you can't believe if you don't have trust. you might win against donald trump, but trust does matter. they were wrong about it then and they're wrong about it now. >> susan? >> looking politically, here's the question. if voters find both candidates unacceptable, do they not turn out? do you have low turnout and only people on the fringes -- >> there's a new poll that people are -- >> not excited. >> they're interested, but not excited about the choice. >> or do they feel so alarmed by the prospect of the other guy that even though they're not enthusiastic about this guy, we have high turnout? that's one of the effects. you asked the first question, the impact of barack obama? that's where barack obama could have impact of drumming up african-americans and helping hillary clinton among younger voters, which is the demographic group with whom she has the biggest problem. >> if we've found barack obama

he's the founder and president of an organization called bouygubugles across america. all told, how many funerals have you done since starting bugles across america? >> 400,000, in ten years. >> right. it started in 2000, when congress gave every vet the right to a funeral with military honors, including two uniformed officers to present a flag and play "taps." the problem was, the military only had 500 buglers, so they sent someone to play a recorded "taps" on a boom box or an electronic device inside a bugle. tom day, who played in the marines in the '50s, didn't like it. >> i call it stolen dignity, that these veterans can't get live "taps" when we are out there ready to perform live "taps." >> so, he started his organization, recruiting 400
horn players within a year. >> now we have 6,270 horn players, and we're doing 2,200 funerals a month. >> it's become quite an operation that day runs out of his basement near chicago. families can go on his website to ask for a bugler. a message is sent to every horn player within 100 miles of the funeral. day gives away bugles and helps with uniforms. while he gets support from foundations, he runs a deficit every year. how do you make up for the shortfall? >> i kind of make it up myself. >> $15,000, $20,000 a year? >> probably $10,000. you finish the last of the 24 notes, you put the horn down, and the flag has been presented. then the family comes over. the kisses, the handshakes from these families. there is nothing, no amount of money could ever buy the feeling
