ation in your mouth and throat. zantac works in as little as 30 minutes. nexium can take 24 hours. try cool mint zantac. no pill relieves heartburn faster. the republican party making it official, it's done, donald trump is, in fact, the nominee. thank you so much for joining us, i'm heather childers. >> i'm kelly wright, trump's nomination tonight closing one of the biggest deals he's ever made in his life but sharing the limelight, his son, donald trump, jr., who cast the final vote. >> it is my honor to be able to throw donald trump over the top in the delegate count tonight with 89 delegates. and another six for john kasich. congratulations, dad, we love
you! [ cheers and applause ] donald trump, again, appeared before the convention. this time, in a taped message calling for the gop to go, quote, all the way. >> for more on day two, we go to sam green, who's live for us in cleveland. high, shannon, another exciting day. >> it has been, heather, you know there was a lot of intrigue on the floor day because this was the day, as you pointed out that delegates officially, state by state, went through and cast their delegates and cast their votes on the floor and it was interesting because at one point, utah stepped up and said it was casting its votes for ted cruz and got overruled for the stage because they could only cast votes for someone who was in nomination and donald trump was the only person today. you saw there were new york, its delegation, with donald trump, jr., got to make it official, putting his dad over the top in the delegate count and it was a family affair tonight. tiffany trump also took to the stage, she and her brother both talked about the skills and the
temperament that they thought made it official, why donald trump, they argued, by outlining a lot of their personal history in their experiences, was the one to become the next commander in chief. >> to this day, many of the top executives in our company are individuals that started out in positions that were blue-collar, but he saw something in them, and he pushed them to succeed. his true gift as a leader is that he sees the potential in people that they don't even see in themselves. [ applause ] tonight, we also heard from one of trump's former rivals, dr. ben carson. he is now a supporter of trump. i got to tell you, traveling on the campaign trail the last year or so, dr. carson is bun one of those people, he generally got the warmest response from the crowd and tonight, we saw him on the stage with no exception. >> this is a nation where our founding document, the declaration of independence,
talks about certain inalienable rights that come from our creator. this is a nation where our pledge of allegiance says we are one nation under god. >> he really got a good response from the crowd tonight, but i got to say the most fiery speech came from new jersey governor, chris christie, also a former rival in this run for the presidency and rumored to be on the vp short list for donald trump. he is a former prosecutor, he used his time to go after hillary clinton, making the case against her on everything from benghazi to her private e-mail server. >> here it is, everybody. we didn't disqualify hillary clinton to be president of the united states. the facts of her life and career disqualify her. [ applause ] it is a role we saw him play on the campaign trail and one that was a big argument a lot of people thought for the reason why he could be the number two on the ticket with donald trump because he seemed so skilled and
so passionate about making these arguments. so, day two was all about make america work again. talking about jobs and the economy, so there were business executives who took to the stage tonight as well. and our most recent polling with fox news shows that the majority of voters, they said the economy is their number one issue going into the fall elections by a margin of nearly four to one and when you put hillary clinton and donald trump head to head, this is one of those issues where he actually gets the better of her, our recent polling showing that he came out by a margin of 53 to 41% against her on the issue of the economy. tomorrow, i think it is make america first again. actually, that's today now, if you're on the east coast, but that'll be day three of the rnc, heather. >> it's very hard to keep track of. but you know, you were talking about chris christie and ben carson, they really lived up to their reputations, good guy, tough guy, with their speeches today for sure. >> they did. and the audience ate up both of their deliveries, and they
really -- you could see they had built so much goodwill along the way and like i said, being on the campaign trail, even when you would be in a room say at the iowa caucuses where a number of these different candidates would show up, ben carson always god the most applause. people really just connect with him in some way. >> a lot of people wanted him in that position that donald trump is now in but that is not the case because donald trump is over the top and he's over the moon with feeling good about his nomination tonight. >> sure is. >> let's take a look at some of the highlights of day two. >> now perspectives on what day two was like, todd, good of you to join us tonight. >> thanks, kelly, don't know what day it is, but glad to be with you. >> let's start with today being tuesday going into wednesday, it's now officially 1:05 in the a.m. on the east coast. so todd, tell us your top five picks of tonight. >> i think the most -- i think number one, topping my list, is this issue with melania trump's
speech from monday night. this is still an issue, and the campaign is hoping that it would not be an issue. but unfortunately, it is. and i want to say right out of the gate, kelly, i don't think that mrs. trump is to blame here. i can't imagine any republican with the right mind wanting to lift something from a democrat speech, especially an obama speech. so, the issue here is how the campaign handled this, not so much the speech, but how the campaign is handling it. and they're not handling it well, and as a result of that, they're getting off message. yesterday should have been about that fiery speech from rudy giuliani, and unfortunately, they're still dealing with the aftermath of that botched speech. >> quite a few people are still talking about it, and in fact, we'll be talking about it throughout the morning as well. because it is still something that's lingering out there, took away, as you said, from rudy giuliani's speech and also the message that they were trying to show for day one. so let me ask you about another factor, party unity.
we heard from house speaker paul ryan tonight. did he do enough to talk about getting the party together and unifying? >> well, sweet lord almighty, kelly, it's like herding cats trying to get all these republicans together on the same page, and quite frankly, paul ryan hasn't been very helpful in that. just the other day, he was saying that donald trump wasn't his kind of conservative, but look, he came out tonight and he did a good job. he rallied the base, and quite frankly, some of his biggest applause lines last night, rather, some of his biggest applause lines came when he did talk about party unity. but i've got to tell you something, i've wandered through the streets and the restaurants and the bars around cleveland, and republicans are not unified yet. >> i like your tennessee slang there, sweet lord almighty. real quickly, before we let you go, chris christie, did he hit a home run tonight? >> we have another saying back in tennessee, he backed up and he brought it and he certainly
did, pulling off a judge judy. i think the crowd really responded. just like rudy giuliani, he really inspired the crowd with that, then actually had them shouting back, guilty, and they wanted -- the crowd was chanting, throw her in jail or lock her up by the time his speech was over. >> all right. well, we got a tweet from hillary clinton out there as well saying that basically people should talk to chris christie about the -- a bridge. >> bridge gate. oh boy, it's back. >> touched on our psyche it h. e >> thanks, guys-hillary clinton mocking the republican convention at an event in las vegas today. listen to this. >> you know, when i was a little girl, i went to see when they reissued it, the movie the wizard of oz. and there were similarities that appeared to me. you know, lots of sound and furry, even a fog machine, but
when you pulled back the curtain, it was just donald trump with nothing to offer to the american people. >> well, joining us now from our new york studio is the executive director of the new york state democratic party, also a former senior aide to hillary clinton when she was new york's junior u.s. senator. basil, the trump campaign has less staff, they're spending less money, but the two are actually running neck and neck in the polls, so is his unconventional approach seemingly working here? >> well, i think there are a few things that work. number one, you know, there was a tremendous amount of media attention because he ran against sort of republican or actually he ran against the system, he talked about the system being rigged, so there was a tremendous amount of media attention on his candidacy, and frankly, that, plus, you know, just his bombastic style sort of just pushed everybody out of the
spotlight, and he took up so much of the air. that said, you know, he's had a last couple of weeks where we've been spending a lot of time talking about his potential vice presidential pick, so i'm not surprised that the polls are where they are right now. i expected this race to be close. of course, i think hillary will win in the end. but i expected this race to be close, i think he'll get a bump after his convention, hillary after hers, and then we'll see what happens after that first debate. that's what i'm really looking forward to. >> and i have a feeling a couple of these will come up as topics when we hit those debates. take to listen to what chris christie had to say today. >> in libya, in nigeria, guilty. in china and syria. >> guilty. >> in iran and russia and cuba. >> guilty! >> and here at home, for risking america's secrets to keep her own and lying to cover it all
up? >> guilty! >> all right, so i'll steal todd's phrase that he just taught us. he backed it up and brought it but it looks like hillary is too, talking about the wizard of oz and such. is this a sign of things to come? >> well, a couple things. certainly chris christie's auditioning for, i guess, the second job he wanted since he didn't get his first job. which is fine, let him do that. but the truth of the matter is, that's really all that chris christie can do. he can come with this sort of prosecutorial style, but he really doesn't have much of a record in new jersey. a lot of folks in new jersey didn't like him and even the conservatives in his party did not like him, and they took him to -- they took him out in the back and beat him senseless because he hugged a president who came to help him after a hurricane hit his state. i mean, to me, you know, i don't think he's a darling of the
moderates, and he's certainly not a darling of the conservatives, so i think he's auditioning for the second job that he wants in a trump administration. that said, i do think you're going to hear a lot of talk about hillary clinton's record as secretary of state. she has a great record as secretary of state. they're going to talk about her untrustworthiness, but the fact is a lot of that is based on 20, 25 years of fiction because she's been this prominent figure in american politics for that long. >> i'm sorry to interrupt. you mentioned that she has a great record as secretary of state. what do you think is the best thing that she did as secretary of state? >> well, frankly, she's led the conversation in terms of talking about climate change. she's led the conversation in terms of talking about human rights issues. she has gone to the middle east and at least tried to talk to countries that could potentially be our partners in fighting the
war on terrorism, which is something that she talked about even on the campaign trail. she said, look, we cannot do this alone, and we have to take to task the countries like syria, like qatar, other countries that need to be stakeholders in this as well. we need to take them to task. she's had tough talk on this. >> sounds like, though, a lot of talk and not a lot of action, when she did have an opportunity to make some significant changes and here we are. >> well, get her to the white house, she'll do the job. >> basil, thank you so much for joining us. thanks. >> thank you. >> for more reaction, let's go to former republican congressman for the state of new york. he joins us now. john, the other panel members are out there somewhere, your colleagues pat and doug, but they're in cleveland, so we may not be able to get them for a moment. let's start with you as a panelist and someone who's been a republican and watching day two, what say you about how day two went? i mean, there are a lot of people there tonight who were trying to find out how do you
make america work again, but they were also looking for a way of saying, okay, it's time for the party to come together and coalesce around donald trump and his status of trying to make america great again. >> yeah. i think -- i think they had a good night. but i think -- and i said this to heather off air -- i wish there was a little more pro what trump is going to do to make america great again, what are his specifics, not just saying we're going to crush isis, we're going to fix this. let's get into a little bit about how we're going to do it. and we need trump to be seen as a nicer guy than a nasty guy, a smiley guy, not a snarling guy. he needs to soften his image up a little bit to win over reluctant voters. they don't like hillary. they don't want to vote for hillary, that's clear. i think the convention tonight was very heavy on anti-hillary, and it's unnecessary.
the country doesn't want to vote for her. when doug comes on here, he's worked for the clintons, he'll tell us on air, there is a resistance to hillary among voters. they don't like her. >> well, let's find out if doug, in fact, does have that to say, because i think that we do have them now. also back with us now former pollster for jimmy carter, and one time advisor for president bill clinton. glad to see you guys there in cleveland. doug, i'll let you start. follow up. >> i think john is right. there is an obvious resistance to the secretary of state. you can hear basil before really fumbling to try to come up with any substantial accomplishments of the secretary in terms of your question. and frankly, the answer to why the republicans are going negative is because the argument against secretary clinton is a strong one, stronger by what fbi director comey said, and i agree with john that
donald trump has to flesh out his agenda with specifics. i think that's what we're going to hear on thursday night, and certainly my own recommendation, if i were advising the trump campaign, which i most assuredly am not in the same way i'm not advising the clintons, but my own advice would be to be detailed, specific, positive looking and forward looking. put another way, exactly what john said, i believe, are the imperatives for thursday night. >> i want to ask you this question based on what doug was just talking about, detailed, specific, and positive, and then going back to what john was saying about how to make donald trump look softer and gentler and kinder. i think the person who did that tonight better than anyone else was his son. >> yes. i think his children have done a great job for him, and i think his youngest daughter did
tonight, and i think donald junior was really strong. i think his wife helped him. i think tomorrow, his other son, eric, and then his daughter, ivanka, is going to introduce him. they've done a lot to this, and people are seeing that, and it's being played in prime time, and that's helping to soften it. i disagree a little bit, not in the general thrust of what john and doug are saying, but i think that trump is -- there's a personality's going to come through, but his positive message has to have an edge to it. he is the nominee of a party that really kind of seized control for one reason, which is that he has taken on the establishment, he has been the voice of a country that is absolutely ready to overthrow the political class of which hillary clinton is the prime static member of. and that's very strong. and to the point about hillary just quickly, it's going to get worse, because the clinton -- i found out today, the clinton cash movie which i have seen
about the foundation and the real scandals is being released not in theaters. it's going to go on the internet. everyone's going to be able to see it this weekend. it's going to be a real trouble for her. >> pat, thank you, pat and doug, stick around, and john is right here with us with heather and i here in new york. there's still much more to come. >> we're going to have more on the panel right after break. stay with us. routine. it's a hard thing to break. day in, day out. from point a to b, and back again. there's a difference between being alive and living. for those who can't imagine life without two wheels, allstate offers a genuine parts guarantee, that promises to fix your bike with original parts. talk to an allstate agent about all the things they do to keep riders riding. you've wished upon it all year,
and now it's finally here. the mercedes-benz summer event is back, with incredible offers on the mercedes-benz you've always longed for. but hurry, these shooting stars fly by fast. lease the gle350 for $579 a month at your local mercedes-benz dealer. mercedes-benz. the best or nothing. (ee-e-e-oh-mum-oh-weh)
america. west virginia workers are the ba backbone of this economy, and hillary clinton is promising to put them out of work? >> let's go back to our political insiders, former pollster for jimmy carter, one-time advisor for bill clinton and former republican congressman for the state of new york. and john, i'll start with you. your reaction to that. i mean, we're talking about coal miners, we're talking about the economy, those rust belt states, they will be imperative when it comes to winning the general election. >> oh, yeah, listen, as bad as hillary looks on the e-mails and the crooked hillary and the lying and all, the record of her on jobs and all that is -- her husband had a good record. she has no record. she's trying to glom off of him. but that performance, months ago in west virginia, was a disaster for her. she tried to walk it back. the media didn't stick it to her
the way they would a republican who did that. and i think this is fair game. i'm glad the senator did that tonight. >> john, what do you say about hillary clinton and the fact that tonight she was under fire from chris christie, the governor of new jersey, who said to the american people, basically, not only the people in the convention floor, but he said to all the people watching tonight, let me spew out the facts, and then you decide if she's guilty or not guilty. so, it was kind of like a public trial, if you will, but he did what he was perhaps told to do, and that was come out and rip hillary clinton's status as secretary of state apart. >> he's like the role of elizabeth warren to the democratic party right now. >> here's what i think. first of all, to shelley moore capito, you know, that's a very powerful and important attack, because donald trump needs to win ohio, kentucky, west virginia, pennsylvania, all
states to a greater or lesser extent where working class jobs in general and coal mining jobs in particular are very important. and christie's critique was a very effective one, particularly vis-a-vis what hillary had says and what director comey has said vis-a-vis the e-mails. but there is one theme that they haven't gotten is inclusiveness. this is a country that is about 25% of the voting age population is minorities, and given a white convention, and really only paul ryan speaking to inclusiveness, i think it's a challenge for donald trump for thursday and indeed the campaign to make the case that he'll be the president of all america and that his policies will benefit all americans, regardless of geography, race, color, or creed. >> so, pat, how does he do that? >> well, i think that what he's
got to do -- by the way, i think christie did do what he said he would have done if he had won the nomination in the debate. given his moment. but i think what he's going to do and i think doug's on to a very, very important point here, which is the republican party, frankly, is viewed as a party without empathy or concern for minorities, poor people, and what have you. donald trump is not an ordinary republican. what he has not done yet -- and i think he's -- he has to do is he has to connect to them that they're just as important as any person in the country, that they have been deprived. he is the one that can carry a message, particularly in the urban america, about the black unemployment, young unemployment, what's happened, because essentially, the democratic party has harvested votes by party for many years and delivered nothing except dependency programs. and that is a powerful argument if he makes it, just as it is for hispanics, and just as it
is, by the way, for the opportunity for asians and young people. >> we are two -- we're halfway through the convention, you know? and i think pat and doug have hit on something but i want to go bigger than that. i think the republicans under trump have missed, so far, the real picture of the country and where we're at in this election, which is not the e-mails, it's not lying hillary. it's bigger than that. it's -- we talk about it on our show every sunday. the public thinks the entire economic system of our country is crooked, rigged against them, fixed for rich guys on wall street, and in the media and in washington, right? where is that message in this convention? why aren't they all saying that? paint the big picture. >> and today was that day. today was the day to do it. >> if they had done it, someone else might be the nominee. the fact is, most republicans have no idea what that message is, and that's why donald trump
wiped out 17 other republicans. >> i know, oh, i know. >> that's why donald trump, jr., made that message clear in his statement about his father being able to be there for all people. that's the message he was trying to convey, is it not? >> it is the message, kelly, but it's got to be bolder, more inclusive, and more specific. >> well, somebody is listening to it, though, because we had shannon bream up at the very top of the show and she said the latest polls that she's seen when it comes to the economy, the american public thinks that donald trump would do a better job than hillary clinton, 53 to 41%. >> we've got to leave it there, but gentlemen, thank you, and there are undecideds that frank talked to who are still undecided, they're basically saying they have two toxic candidates and they don't know who to vote for, so the message has to be strongly given throughout the rest of the republican national convention. >> they need to detoxify donald trump. >> we'll end it on that note of
we . >> well, new jersey governor chris christie became one of donald trump's loudest cheerleaders, after the new jersey governor dropped his own presidential bid, he may have outdone himself. >> he may have indeed. now you can hear the whole thing for yourself. it's coming up right after the break. i accept i'm not 22 i accept i do a shorter set these days. i even accept i have a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. but i won't play anything less than my best. so if there's something better than warfarin, i'm going for it. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin, plus it had significantly less major bleeding than warfarin... eliquis had both... that's what i wanted to hear. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to,
as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... ...and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i accept i don't play quite like i used to. but i'm still bringing my best. and going for eliquis. reduced risk of stroke plus less major bleeding. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. squuuuack, let's feed him let's feto the sharks!sharks! yay! and take all of his gold! and take all of his gold! ya! and hide it from the crew! ya...? squuuuack, they're all morons anyway! i never said that. they all smell bad too. no! you all smell wonderful!
welcome back. new jersey governor chris christie giving a barn burner speech at the republican national convention. >> indeed he did, and we've been talking about it. it may have been something of an audition, if you will, to become donald trump's attorney general. here's the speech in its entirety. >> good evening. good evening. i'm here tonight, not only as the governor of new jersey but also as donald trump's friend for the last 14 years. we are about to be led by not only a strong leader but by the caring, genuine, and decent person. i'm proud to say that the voice of the people of our nation is being heard in this hall tonight, and those voices want donald trump to be the next president of the united states.
[ applause ] but everybody, this election is not just about donald trump, no. it's also about his democratic opponent, hillary rod hham clinton. now, in the past few weeks, we've seen the justice department refuse to prosecute her. over the last eight years, we've seen this administration refuse to hold her accountable for her dismal record as secretary of state. so, let's do something fun tonight. tonight, as a former federal prosecutor, i welcome the opportunity to hold hillary rodham clinton accountable for her performance and her character. [ applause ]
now -- >> lock her up! lock her up! lock her up! . >> all right, all right, we're getting there. give me a few more minutes, we'll get there. here's what we're going to do. we're going to present the facts to you. you, tonight, sitting as a jury of her peers, both in this hall and in your living rooms around our nation. you see, since the justice department refuses to allow you to render a verdict, i'm going to present the case now on the facts against hillary rodham
clinton. [ applause ] now, she was america's chief diplomat, so let's look around the violence and the danger today in every region that has been infected by her flawed judgment. but i'm going to be specific so that you can render your verdict tonight on the basis of the facts. let's go to north africa. she was the chief engineer of the disastrous overthrow of qaddafi in libya. libya today, after hillary clinton's grand strategy, their economy's in ruins, there's death and violence on the streets, and isis is now dominating that country. so, i'm going to ask you this. hillary clinton, as a failure for ruining libya and creating a nest for terrorist activity by isis, answer me now, is she guilty or not guilty? >> guilty! >> in nigeria, hillary clinton
amazingly fought for two years to keep an al qaeda affiliate off of the terrorist watch list. now, what happens because of this reckless action by the candidate who is the self-proclaimed champion of women all around the world? these al qaeda terrorists abducted hundreds of innocent young women two years ago. these schoolgirls are still missing today. and what was the solution from the obama-clinton team? a hashtag campaign. so, now, let's figure it out. let's decide. hillary clinton, as an apologist for an al qaeda affiliate in nigeria resulting in the capture of innocent young women, is she guilty or not guilty? >> guilty! >> see, she fights for the wrong people. she never fights for us.
she doesn't get the real threats that america faces. so, now, let's go to china. in china, hillary clinton praised the chinese government for buying our debt to finance barack obama's bloated stimulus plan. she was so desperate for chinese cash, she promised to oppose the buy american provision in the stimulus bill in exchange for the cash to finance a huge expansion of federal government spending. so, hillary clinton, putting big government spending financed by the chinese ahead of good paying jobs for middle class americans, is she guilty or not guilty? >> guilty! >> let's go to syria. in syria, imagine this, imagine this, she called president assad a reformer. she called assad a different
kind of leader. there's now 400,000 dead. think about that. 400,000 dead at the hands of the man that hillary defended. so, we must ask this question, hillary clinton, as an awful judge of the character of a dictator and butcher in the middle east, is she guilty or not guilty? >> guilty! >> next, in iran, she launched a negotiation that brought about the worst nuclear deal in history. let me be clear. america and the world are measurably less safe and less respected because of the iran deal that hillary helped cut. period. after she launched those negotiations, she game the biggest cheerleader for this
agreement in the end. it's a deal that will lead to a nuclear iran, an israel that will be much less safe and secure, and a much more dangerous middle east. so let's ask it. hillary clinton as an inept negotiator of the worst nuclear arms deal in american history, is she guilty or not guilty? next -- >> lock her up! lock her up! >> next -- oh, believe me, we're not done yet. the indictment is hardly complete. next, let's go to russia. she went to the kremlin on her very first visit and gave them
that stupid symbolic reset button. you know what i think that button should have read? it should have read "delete." you know, she's very good at that, by the way. [ applause ] and it should have read "delete" because she deleted, in four years, the safety and security it took us to build in 40 years. the next year, she said our goal, america's goal was to strengthen russia, strengthen an adversary led by a dictator who dreams of reassembling the old soviet empire? what an extraordinarily dangerous lack of judgment. so, once again, we need to ask, as a flawed evaluator of dictators and failed strategist who has permitted russia back in as a major player in the middle east, is hillary clinton guilty
or not guilty? >> guilty! >> now, we go to cuba. hillary clinton supported concessions to the castro brothers and got almost nothing in return for ending the embargo. she supported a deal that didn't even require this murderous regime to return a cop killer to face justice. see, i know about this personally. chezomar murdered a new jersey state trooper in cold blood, fled to cuba, and lives there under cuban protection to this very day. i want to ask you, how could someone live with their own conscience when you reward a domestic terrorist with continued safety and at the same time betray the family of a fallen police officer waiting for decades for justice for his murder? so let's ask the question. hillary clinton, as a cod ler of
the brutal castro brothers and betrayer of the family of fallen state trooper werner foster and his family, is he guilty or not guilty? >> guilty! >> locker up! lo lock her up! locker up! . >> now, finally, here at home in one of her first decisions as secretary of state, she set up a private e-mail server in her basement in violation of our national security. let's face the facts. hillary clinton cared more about protecting her own secrets than she cared about protecting america's secrets. and then, she lied about it over
and over and over again. she said there was no marked classified information on her server. the fbi director said, that's untrue. she said that she did not e-mail any classified information. the fbi director says that's untrue. she said all work related e-mails were sent back to the state department. the fbi director said, that's not true. so, as to hillary clinton, the charge of putting herself ahead of america, guilty or not guilty? >> guilty! >> hillary -- >> lock her up! lock her up! . >> i got another question for you. i got another question for you. as to hillary clinton lying to
the american people about her selfish, awful judgment in making our secrets vulnerable, what's your verdict? guilty or not guilty? now, time -- time after time after time, the facts and just the facts lead you to the same verdict, both around the world and here at home. in libya and nigeria, guilty. in china and syria. >> guilty. >> in iran and russia and cuba. >> guilty! >> and here at home for risking american secrets to keep her own and lying to cover it all up? >> guilty! >> her focus group tested persona with no genuineness to be found is a sham meant to obscure all the facts and leave you able to vote for her.
we cannot promote someone to commander in chief who has made the world a more violent and dangerous place with every bad judgment she's made. we cannot make the chief law enforcement officer of the united states someone who has risked america's secrets and lied to the american people about it day after day after day. here it is, everybody. we didn't disqualify hillary clinton to be president of the united states. the facts of her life and career disqualify her. [ applause ] see, i can tell that everybody in this hall agrees with this, but i want to take our last moments here to talk to all of you at home in your living rooms, sitting there tonight. you're the ones who will decide this election. we have an alternative. we have a man who is unafraid. we have a man who wants to lead
us. we have a man who understands the frustrations and the aspirations of our fellow citizens. we have a man who judges people based on their performance, regardless of your gender, your race, your ethnic or religious background. i implore you, we do not need to settle for less in this election. we cannot reward incompetence and deceit. we need to demand more than what hillary clinton offers for america, because, see, we know exactly what four years of hillary clinton will bring. all the failures of the obama years but with less charm and more lies. [ applause ] tonight, those of us in this hall and the people at home, it is our obligation to stop hillary clinton now and never let her get within ten miles of the white house again.
[ applause ] it is time to come together and make sure that donald trump is the next president of the united states! [ applause ] i am proud to be part of this team. now, let's go out and win this thing together! let's go get them! good night! >> good night, everybody. well, with me now, christopher bedford, he is the editor in chief for the daily caller. thank you so much for joining us so early. >> good morning. >> so, what do you think? just your overall response to chris christie's speech there. >> so, what i noticed is how much deferred from his speech four years ago for mitt romney. both times, we know that chris christie did want to be vice president and he was disappointed to not be chosen both times, but four years ago, he really spoke all about chris christie, and this time, he didn't really talk about himself at all. he attacked hillary clinton and
he capped it in both ends with huge support for donald trump, so you can be sure that unlike four years ago, we're going to see him on team trump a lot over the next few months. >> do you think the difference of not talking about himself, talking more about donald trump is because he's auditioning for the job of attorney general? >> that seems most likely. he seems most suited for that. the one thing i thought was interesting was, if you're trying to be the balanced law enforcement agent in top of america's law enforcement, this was kind of a robespierre type speech. it certainly wasn't an unbiased speech. it seemed like he could have been auditioning a little bit more to be donald trump's attack dog, and he may have saved it a little bit more mike pence who was a little bit more measured, so chris christie seems like he put in his resume to say, donald, i'm still here and i'll still attack, attack, attack. >> he's kind of taken elizabeth warren role over at this point, not necessarily on twitter
though. we'll see if that happens hillary clinton did have a response. here's what she tweeted in response to chris christie. she says, if you think chris christie can lecture anyone on ethics, we have a bridge to sell you. what could that possibly be talking about? i have no idea. >> that's another problem that christie's going to have, trying to be attorney general. it's, well, nothing has been proven, there are rumors all around him that he used his power, at least his deputies abused their power to punish political opponents and be kind of petty, and that will certainly get in the way of trying to be attorney general, depending on how the democrats do and how much power they have over a potential trump white house. >> all right. thank you so much for joining us. appreciate your insight and opinions, christopher bedford. thanks. >> thank you. >> well, they are among the most courted voters of this presidential race. >> the millennials. the millennial generation could ultimately decide who wins the white house next fall and up next, we will hear from a young voter who spoke at the convention yesterday on thousand
welcome back. we want to get more reaction now to what governor chris christie had been talking about. let's go to former republican congressman for the state of new york. john, what do you say about what you heard tonight from governor christie? >> well, for entertainment, it was dynamite. that's the red meat of the convention, mayor giuliani did it monday night, governor christie did it tuesday night, and there is a need at a convention for some red meat for the delegates. but this thing is a tv show. this convention's a tv show aiming at a huge audience out in america, and what are we trying
to do? we're trying to win an election, and we have the nominee at around 41%. he needs to get maybe 50% or maybe 48 in a three or four-way race, so he's got to pick up a lot more votes, and the way to get them is the image that is presented through that tv screen every night at this convention, and we don't need to keep going after the same voters. that red meat is great for the people who already hate hillary. but we need to go out and convince people to like trump or as i said going into a commercial a minute ago, to detoxify trump and make him appear to be more attractive to people. >> all right. john, we thank you for your comments. >> thank you. >> and for being here for another night. >> well, some of those voters that he will need will be the younger voters. republican pollster frank luntz says the gop has already lost the youth vote because he says they are taught by professors who voted for bernie sanders.
but yet at the convention, the chairwoman of the college republican national committee had a little more optimistic tone. >> now, i know all about the criticisms of young americans today. but i also know the words of ronald reagan. he said that if we express our principles in ways today's voters understand, we create a whole new generation of conservatives. >> so, joining us now, chairwoman of the college republican national committee, so tell us about the millennials and what do you think they like or dislike about donald trump, the republican presidential nominee? >> thank you so much for having me. i think there are tremendous opportunities with millennials and donald trump. i think they fundamentally see him as an authentic candidate, someone that's not bought by special interests. that's something they very much do not see in hillary clinton at this point. they don't trust her, and i feel
like she isn't who she says she is. >> well, when you say that, what are they -- what are they getting from donald trump that makes him believe that he is who he says he is? >> i think it's the style in which he communicates. you know, he's out there on social media just sort of saying what he means and saying it almost immediately after it happens. it doesn't look like hillary clinton's team where it has to go through a 20-person, you know, sort of bureaucracy to get out there. he's just talking about things in a common sense plain way and i think that's attractive to young voters. >> is he inclusive enough to your liking? >> you know, i think that any republican candidate is going to have to be more inclusive of young voters. that's something our party has struggled with since 2012. it was young voters that decided the presidential election against mitt romney in 2012, and if voting had started at 8:30, mitt romney would be our president today. so i think that any republican candidate is going to start out
at a deficit so we need to make sure that we have the resources available for mr. trump to be able to win back young voters with this very important election cycle. >> so you heard donald trump, jr., tonight, and he was talking about how his father reaches out to all people and would like to create a nation that has prosperity for all americans, not just white americans but black americans, muslim americans, christian americans, you name it, he wants to do it according to donald trump, jr. how did that message strike with you? did it strike a chord with you? >> i thought donald trump jr.'s message was excellent tonight, he had a thoughtful passion nalt defense of conservative principles and this is something we've said all along at the republican national college committee, if we have a genuine, awe thent you can conversation with voters our age about conservative principles, they will eventually come over to our side because it's free market and liberty minded principles that run millennial's lives so
that's discordant with a liberal establishment that wants to run things from the top down from washington, d.c. >> we thank you for your comments and being a young millenni millennial who was able to talk to the nation with your message. >> thank you so much. >> so, you know, when we see this, a young millennial like that and donald trump jr. resonating with them, and in fact, many people said donald trump jr. should be running because they believe a star has been born with a political future ahead of him. 30 years old and a father of five and perhaps what he said tonight, maybe his father will soften his approach and become more like donald, jr. >> we will see. >> we will see. it's now official. donald trump is the 2016 republican nominee. so we said if you need safelite to come to the zoo we'll come to the zoo! only safelite can fix your windshield anywhere in the us. with our exclusive mobileglassshops. and our one of a kind trueseal technology, for a reliable bond.

clinton to be president of the united states of america. the facts of her life and career disqualify her. [ applause ] >> convention also heard from a couple of trump's children, as well as congressional leaders, mitch mcconnell, paul ryan, two republicans who have eventually embraced donald trump, though they have pointed out things that he has at sure, we have. you want to know what i call those? signs of life. signs of
the topic of the day all day yesterday had to do with melania trump. what she said in her convention speech and what michelle obama said in her 2008 convention speech. republicans in the trump campaign have attempted to move past that. they did so with last night's second night. we will hear from a handful of republicans. we've got eric trump, another son of donald trump. the house speaker newt gingrich and the vice presidential nominee, mike pence. back to you. >> thank you very much. >> lots of talk before the roll call of the never trump camp creating some drama but wasn't to be. but that doesn't mean that it wasn't plenty exciting. look. >> 36 votes for the next president of the united states, donald j. trump.
>> arizona delivers 58 bound votes. >> 172 votes to the nominee. >> and it's my honor to be able to throw donald trump over the top in the delegate count tonight with 89 delegates. >> but some republicans say that donald trump still has a little bit of work to do to truly unify party. joining us now by phone, the texas attorney general ken paxton. he is an unbound delegate. thank you for joining us this morning. >> thanks for having me on. i appreciate it. >> so first of all, you have not formally endorsed donald trump. do you plan to do that? >> i'm absolutely supporting him. i think tonight was a great night. when you have 17 candidates like we did which is probably more than we ever have. and they're qualified. i think it is difficult for people to come together at the
same time. i think we're there now and i think you'll see a lot more republicans. not just the republicans but around the country to support trump against hillary clinton. >> i found it interesting. we just aired a little of it. and one of the features this evening, he talked about that. some people, the lack of unity that still needs to be worked on. he said we've had our arguments this year. sure we have. we call it signs of life. the party isn't just going through motions. so what other issues do you think that they need to tackle specifically to move forward and unify? >> well, i think it will become very clear when you're now down to two candidates. down to hillary clinton and donald trump. you'll have a very, i think he will spend his time focusing on the differences between him and hillary. i think people will see it, for me as an attorney general, i'm looking at legal issues. who will be appointed to the supreme court. i think those will be very
differently answered. >> when you say talking about or focusing on the differences, do you think that there's been too much attack hillary clinton and not really getting into the specifics of not necessarily so much of what she has done wrong but what the republican party can do right moving forward? >> i think there will be both. she has a long record of service and there is a lot to contrast with. so that could be viewed as negative. some of the things she's done are really negative. so i think you'll see both the contrast and i think you'll see more specifics from donald trump about what he will do. >> also, issues in our own country right now. when it comes to the safety of our law enforcement. when it comes to targeting certain groups based on race or gender. how do you see donald trump needs to tackle that? >> you know, obviously, i was in dallas when the shootings occurred and it was devastating
to our community. what was awesome about the event is that despite the tragedy, it was really wonderful to see the community come together to support the family. law enforcement. and i think we need to continue and i think donald trump will do it. i think he will support law enforcement. and i think ellen courage the communications between law enforcement and the community. >> .with you that morning after the dallas shoot hg occurred. how is texas doing right now? >> you know, i've been so pleased and impressed with the people of dallas, the people of texas who have really come together and put their arms around these families. they will suffer for years to come. the sacrifices of law enforcement. it's been remarkable. >> thank you so much for taking the time to join us and of course our prayers to everyone out there in texas. thank you. >> we really appreciate it. thank you. >> well, indiana governor mike pence officially becoming the
vice presidential nominee. >> and he gives his acceptance speech wednesday night. that's tonight. what does he need to say? joining us from cleveland, strategist christopher metsler. i want to start off first of all what governor pence had to say in terms of defining himself. he said, quote, i'm a christian and a conservative in that order. what does that mean to the republican party now that he is sided with donald trump? keep in mind this is a governor who at once, at one time, endorsed senator ted cruz. >> i think it means a couple things. one of the most important things, i was in the hall this evening and it was absolutely electrifying. as i expect it will be tomorrow. it is important for him to look at unifying the base. and from a conservative
standpoint, from a christian standpoint, from a republican stam, he is bringing a lot of the social conservatives to the fold. it is very, very important as you've heard all the speakers talk about, to make sure that the party is unified. he also brings the fact that he has been a governor for a short period of time so he is not tainted by the bureaucracy that goes on and on and on often in government. >> he's also been a member of congress and with some of his messages in terms of the lgbt community, he has offended some. those have caused hiv to be criticized by his own people. >> giving a speech before the
american union. he is trying to bring more people in. >> it is time for to us come together. time for to us come together around this good man, the agenda of barack obama and hillary clinton has weakened america's place in the world and stifled our nation's economy. and so we must decide here and now that hillary clinton will never become president of the united states. >> is his message strong enough to win over republicans who are not quite satisfied with donald trump? >> i think it is. i think it is a combination of message. i think it is a combination of demeanor. i think pits we started the discussion in earnest tonight in the hall about really unifying the entire party. and i'll tell you this. the party will be unified
against hillary clinton and in support of donald trump. so let's not underestimate as well. is he perfect? no. there are no perfect candidates. we understand that. but i think from this perspective, it was a smart pick. yes, he's been criticized for all these things. but of the candidates running, which one has not been criticized? >> very good. >> what does governor pence to have say tonight as a vice presidential nominee? >> i think he has to let everyone know that he in fact can take over and to be the commander in chief. i think he has to let everyone know that he will fight for the middle class. and i think he has to let everyone know, this is not about legacy. this is about changing the country at its core.
here's what he had to say. >> i have to start out by saying one very important thing. i'm not politically correct. and i hate political correctness. because it is antithetical to the founding principles of this country. and the secular progressives use it to make people sit down and shut up while they change everything. it is time for us to stand up and shout out about what we believe in. >> i devoted my career to studying and operating on the human brain. this remarkable organ defines our humanity. it gives us the ability to not only feel and observe, but to reason. when we elect a president, we need to use that power of
reasoning. to look at their history, their character, what kind of people they realliful are it makes all the difference in the world for us. and it is going to be so critical right now. we must resist the temptation to take the easy way out and to passively accept what is fed to us by the politically elite and the media. because they don't know what they're talking about. but they have an agenda. now we must also be weary of the narrative that's being advanced by some in our own party. the notion that a hillary clinton administration wouldn't be that bad. the effects would only be temporary. that it would only last for four if not eight years. they're not using their god given brain to think about what they're saying. it won't be four or eight years.
because she will be appointing people who will have an effect on us for generations and america may never recover from that. that's what we have to be thinking about. interestingly enough, we have to start thinking about what would hillary clinton do if she was in fact the president? she would appoint supreme court justices. she would appoint federal judges. and that would have a deleterious effect on what happens for generations to come. not only that but she would continue with a system that denigrates young people, puts them in a place where they'll never be able to get a job. where they're always going to be dependent and on where they can therefore be cultivated for their votes.
this is not what america is all about. this kind of deception. and this is what we the people have the necessary obligation to fight. now, one of the things that i have learned about hillary clinton is that one of her heroes, her mentors was saul olynski. and her senior thesis was about him. this was someone that she greatly admired. and that affected all of her philosophies after that. let me tell you something about him. he wrote a book called rules for radicals on the dedication page, it acknowledges lucifer, the
original radical, who gained his own kingdom. now think about that. this is the nation where our founding documents, the declaration of independence talks about certain inalienable rights that come from our creator. this is a nation where it says one nation under god. every coin in our pocket and every bill in our ability says, in god we trust. so are we willing to elect someone as president who has as their role model somebody who acknowledges lucifer? think about that. the secular progressive agenda is antithetical to the principles of the founding of
this nation. if we continue to allow them to take god out of our lives, god will remove himself. our nation will not be bless asked it will go down the tubes and we will be responsible. we don't want that to happen. now, donald trump understands this very well of he understands that the blessings of this nation come with the responsibility to ensure that they are available to all. not just the privileged few. this is exemplified by his willingness to take on the establishment against all odds. it is evident in his passion for the american worker. it is found in his desire to put his considerable skills on behalf american interests. not his self-interests. i am proud to support donald trump. an extraordinary businessman. the right leader for a time such as this.
but do you know what? it is not about donald trump. it is not about me. it is about we the people. and thomas jefferson said that we would reach this point. because we the people would not be paying attention and it would allow the government to grow, to expand and to metastasize. but he said, before we turn into something else, we the people would recognize what was going on. what we were about to lose. and we would rise up and we would take control of our nation and i say, now is the time for us to rise up and take america back. >> that's ben carson there speaking at the national convention on day two. let's bring in our political panel. the campaign adviser to hillary clinton in 2008.
at the manhattan institute for research. also the pulitzer prize winning journalist, and the chief political correspondent for the conservative review. ladies, thank you for joining us. so dr. ben carson was well received by the crowd on the convention floor tonight. for all intents and purposes gave a speech they wanted to hear but some have taken exception to the fact that he used the word lucifer and connected hillary clinton to that. is it right? is it fair that democratic opponents should be demonized and called satan or lucifer? >> i think we know the answer to that question. it is no surprise. certainly tonight was much more well produced than last night. the chaos and the anger and the, there weren't as many lies told. but they still found a way of getting in the gutter and surprisingly that came from ben
carson. the idea that he would be connecting her to lucifer. that's the political rhetoric we're living in now and that's the political rhetoric that has been led by donald trump. this is a reflection of the country that he wants, and the words that he wants to be spoken in this election. and i think we should be very afraid. >> in other points, dr. carson said some statements that not only pleased the base but also perhaps pleased a lot of republicans who wanted to hear him talk about all americans. was able to do that and get away from the comment he made in the initial part of his speech. >> well, he made that comment. he was hague out the case of hillary clinton, who she idolized. it wasn't something that he made up. >> idolized at the time or admired saul alinsky. >> yes. he was appearing to the christian base. the kroid was very enthusiastic. people on the right love ben
carson any way. and what towed say in terms of hillary clinton, he is hague out the case for why individuals should not be voting for her. her lack of accountability and responsibility, her lack of leadership in the state department. there's a long list of things that hillary clinton has done that is really a turn-off for a lot of people. >> again, i'm sorry. go ahead. >> probably what you were going to mention which was right before that part of the speech, he talked about specifically education and young people. and the millennial vote, we were mentioning earlier, will be key. for either candidate. so did he do a good job in that respect? >> no. i don't really think he did. i mean, that job fell to the trump children. and one had to acknowledge tonight that what was striking about this convention is the extent to which it has become donald trump's convention. the children being the forces of height, a family being the
forces of light, even though they, too, were very negative. but then leaving the surrogates to do the attack. but the overall impression, this is the attack, the negativity, the comparison of hillary with a lucifer worshipping person. somebody ought to tell mr. carson, dr. carson, that a fundamental pillar of american democracy is not taking god in or out of our hives but separating god from the state. because i cover a part of the world where there is no separation and as we all from isis, it is not pretty. i was very struck by the negativity of the tone of the speakers and the extent of which the party of lincoln has become the party of trump. the party that freed the slaves was addressing a party with only 3% delegates is that only 14%
hispanic delegates which is half of what governor romney was able to a semiwhen the last time. i don't see why you win an wleks that narrow a base. >> all right. a lot. we'll be with you throughout the night and we'll have more discussion on what's going on at the republican convention. >> the house speaker paul ryan calling for party unity saying it is the key to defeating hillary clinton. >> up next, hear what the speaker said about making the gop stronger. as our special election coverage continues.
welcome back to the much anticipated speech from house speaker paul ryan. he has broken with trump on many of the nominees' proposals. but tonight, he called for unity. that's what he was reaching for in the republican party as he attacked hillary clinton's policies. here is his speech in its entirety. >> friends, fellow citizens. i can't tell you how much i appreciate the privilege of addressing this 41st convention of the party of lincoln. and as part of my chairman duties, let me thank all the people of this beautiful city for looking after us this week.
and above all, above all, i want to thank the men and women who are here from law enforcement for your service. you know, standing up here again, it all has kind of a familiar feel. students of trivia will recall that last time around i was your nominee for vice president. it was a great honor. it was a great honor even if things didn't work out quite according to the plan. hey, i'm a positive guy. i found some other things to keep me busy. and i like to look at it this way. the next time that there is a state of the union address, i
don't know where joe biden or barack obama will be. but you'll find me right there with vice president mike pence and president donald trump. democracy is a series of choices. we republicans have made our choice. have we had our arguments this year? sure we have. do you know what i call those some signs of life. signs of a party that is not just going through motions. not just mounting, mouthing new words from the same old stuff.
meanwhile, what choice has the other party made in this incredible year filled with so many surprises? here we are. at a time when men and women in both parties so clearly, so undeniably want a big change in direction for america. a clean break from a failed system. what does the democratic party establishment offer? what is their idea of a clean break? they are offering a third obama term brought to you by another clinton. and you're supposed to be excited about that. for a country so ready for change, it feels like we've been cleared for takeoff. and then somebody announced we're all going back to the gate. it is like we've been on hold forever. waiting and waiting to finally talk to a real person and somehow we've been sent back to the main menu. watch the democratic party
convention next week. that four-day infomercial of politically correct moralizing. and let it be a reminder of all that is at stake in this election. you can get through four days of it with a little help from the mute button. but four more years of it? not a chance. not a chance. look. the obama years are almost over. the clinton years are way over. 2016 is the year america moves on. from now to november, we will hear how many different ways progressive elitists can find to talk to the rest of america. to tell voters that the obama years have been good for you. you should be grateful and well, now, it's hillary's turn.
the problem is really simple. the problem here is very simple. there is a reason people in our country are disappointed and restless. if opportunity seems like it has been shipping away, that's because it has. and liberal progressive ideas have done exactly nothing to help. wages never seem to go up. the whole economy feels stuck and millions of americans, millions of americans, middle which is a security is now just a memory. our president likes to talk forever about poverty in america. if high sounding talk did any good, we would have overcome those problems long ago. this explains why under the most liberal president we've had so far, poverty in america is worse. especially for our fellow
citizens who need it most and were promised better. the result is a record of discarded promises. empty gestures. phony straw arguments. shady power maze like the one that gave us obamacare. constitutional limits brushed off as nothing. and all the while, dangers in the world downplayed even as the threats go bolder and come closer. it is the last chapter of an old story. progressives deliver everything except progress. yesterday we know better than most. we know better than to think republicans can win only on the failures of democrats. it still come down to a contest of ideas which is really good news, ladies and gentlemen.
when bits ideas, the advantage goes to us. against dreary back drop of arrogant bureaucracy, all that progressives have in store for us. the republican party stands as a great enduring party. we believe in making government as ronald reagan said. not the distributor of gifts and privilege but once again the protector of our liberties. let the other party go on making its case for more government control over every aspect of our lives. more debt to pay, more rules to follow, more judges who make it up as they go along. we in this party, we are committed to a federal government that acts again as a servant, accountable to the
people. following the constitution. going not one inch beyond consent of the government. we in this party offer a better way for our country. based on fundamentals that go back to the founding generation. we believe in a free society. where aspiration and effort can make a difference in every life. where your starting point is not your destiny. where your first chance is not your only chance. we offer a better way for america. a reformed tax code for free enterprise instead of enterprising hobbyists. a reformed health care system that operates by free choice instead of by force and doesn't leave you with cold chooless bureaucrats. a commitment to a renewed 21st
century military. giving them the care that they were promised and the care that they earned. and we offer a better way for dealing with persist tent poverty in this country. a way that shows poor americans a way beyond liberal poverty and check writing. with opportunity and independence. the happiness of using your gifts and the dignity of having a job. and do you know what? none of this will happen under hillary clinton. only with donald trump and mike pence do we have a chance and a better way. last opponent.
last point. let the other side go on and on with the constant dividing of people. always playing one group against the other. in america, aren't we all supposed to be and see beyond class? see beyond ethnicity? are all these lines drawn instead of locking us into groups? real social progress is always a winding of the circle of concern and protection. it is respect and empathy overtaking blindness. understanding by the true pressure we are all neighbors and countrymen. calling each one of us to know what is right and kind and just. and to go and do likewise. everyone. everyone is equal. everyone has a place.
no one is written off. because there is goodness in every life. straight from the declaration of independence. that is the republican ideal. if we won't defend it, who will? so much, so much that you and i care about. so many things that we stand for in the balance of this coming election. whatever we lack, we should not lack for motivation. in the plainest terms i know, it is all on the line. so let's act that way. let's act that way. let's see if the edge we have. this year surprises and dramatic turns can end in the finest possible way. when america elects a conservative governing majority. we can do this.
we can earn that mandate if we don't hold anything back. if we never who's sight of the space. if we never who's sight of what is on the table. our candidates will be giving their all, their utmost and everyone of us has got to go and do the same. so what do you say? what do you say that we unify this party? what do you say that we unify this party at this crucial moment when unity is everything? let's take our fight to our opponent with better ideas. let's get on the offensive and let's stay there. let's compete in every part of america and turn out at the polls like every last vote matters because it will. fellow republicans, what we have begun here, let's see this thing through. let's win this thing. let's show america our best and nothing less. thank you. thank you. and god bless. >> paul ryan speaking there for
roughly 12 minutes. and he only mentioned donald trump once, if you were counting. for reaction we are joined now by a fox news political analyst. thank you for joining us, first of all. >> thank you for having me. my pleasure. >> so paul ryan may have mentioned donald trump's name just once. what he said was pretty significant and what a lot of people needed to hear or wanted to hear. that was unification with him. he went so far as to say the next time you see him, he will be right there next to vice president mike pence and president donald trump. was that enough? >> all i can say is this is paul ryan 2020. do you remember 2004, this is the only time i'll come pair paul ryan to obama. 2004 obama gave his speech about unifying. that's the speech. that's the paul ryan that i know. not only tonight did he unify the party. he has laid the beginning of a
foundation to run for president. >> and he also mentioned progressives. why did he do that? what did you think about what he had to say? >> now, i don't like liberal policies but i like progressive policies. we are more the progressive party. liberals use fear. we want to give people tools to build the house. so basically he was saying that this is the party that can actually create a better america, a more prosperous america. i think not only did he unify the party, i think he brought the progressives on board. >> today's theme -- i'm sorry. yesterday's theme was supposed to be putting america back to work. the economy. some of the lines he said, he talked about obamacare for a moment. he talked about president obama calling him the most liberal president that we've ever had. and that as a result of that, poverty in america is worse,
especially for our fellow citizens who were promised better and need it the most. how do you think donald trump and this mike pence can pull over those people who are undecided into the party? how can he assure them that he can get them jobs? >> first of all, tax policy, tax policy, tax policy. we need to her on taxes. and actually give the american people their money back. because they know best what to do with their money. talk about the issues. talk about what you're going to do. let's stop talking about highin hillary. what we want to know, what are you going to do? obama and his policies has actually made this country worse. our middle which is a is now in a poverty which is a. the bottom line is what are you going to do to rectify what has been done wrong? >> that's where i was going with
my questioning. a hot of -- or some of the criticism of the convention so far is that it focused too much on attack hillary clinton and not enough on some of those specifics. what the party can do for people who are not this at the convention but are at home hopefully watching. >> what is so sad about my party that i'm a member of the republican party. we are poor communicators. so we're trying to take a page out of the liberal play book. stick with what you know. right now we don't look like the party that i joined. the bottom line is this. what they need to do is stop with the insults. that's why donald trump is our nominee. >> all right. always an honor to have you on. >> thank you. >> this giving voters a new perspective on the nominee. >> up next, donald trump jr. and why he said it was the most
and it's empowering anyone to stop a job if something doesn't seem right. at bp, safety is never being satisfied. and always working to be better. at bp, safety is never being satisfied. mary buys a little lamb. one of millions of orders on this company's servers. accessible by thousands of suppliers and employees globally. but with cyber threats on the rise, mary's data could be under attack. with the help of at&t, and security that senses and mitigates cyber threats, their critical data is safer than ever. giving them the agility to be open & secure. because no one knows & like at&t.
it is my honor to be able to though donald trump over the top with 89 delegates. and another 6 for john kasich. >> congratulations, dad, we love you. >> the delegates for the state of new york. being a delegate i got to be a part of that process. i didn't realize you could may with it that way. that's why pennsylvania deferred so kindly. i had a lot of friends in that delegation. they deferred their votes so new york could get and it be the one to though him over the threshold. and i work with the chairman. it was great. >> when they see how hard he's worked. especially him in this whole process to be the guy that says, here you are. this is what you've worked so hard for for the last 18 months. it is awesome. the most surreal moment of my high of. >> that's a great moment for
donald trump jr. and all the children who were this to see their dad get the nomination. and his entire speech that he gave for the republican national convention in the last hour. let's wrap up this hour with our political hour. judith miller, adjunct professor. a pulitzer prize winning author and journalist. and the chief political correspondent. we go back to the second night of the republican convention. and at this point, you want to see the party start to get together. you want to see them get together in unity. have they achieved that? or do they have some heavy lifting to do between now and thursday when donald trump comes out to give his speech to the people who support him at the republican national convention? >> i think things have certainly gotten better.
this whole election year has been a marathon. so there have been a lot of changes over the course of the election. this campaign. so i think people will recognize the fact that if we doing with hillary clinton, it will be another four more years of obama presidency. high taxes. she is attack the fossil fuel industry. that means jobs and revenue. people are concerned about safety and security, and their concerned about the economy. >> in terms of who you thought addressed the topic of the night. including putting people back to work. >> i was going to ask myself, what did we learn about donald trump's economic plan? we know he has no plan for how to build our infrastructure.
no man for how to raise wages. he said that wages are too high. he has no man for making college affordable. ba you have a lot of effort saying, he would be a disaster for our economy. and that includes the chamber of comers and i think that is reflected in paul ryan's stage. he looked so tortured. i think four years ago when he was the vice presidential nominee. he was smiling and so energetic. it he understands what is really at stake is the loss of the republican party. >> isn't it amazing when you look at the different people and the perspectives on the speeches. your perspective was metly opposite of what she thought of his speech. she thought i'm so proud to be a
republican. that's one of the things she said. as a result of his speech. >> the only beacon of hope on that stage. when he runs for president, they're going to may that chip of him being the one to say he's the nominee. and i think paul ryan understands how dangerous that is. >> the economy as well. we were talking about this. one of the greatest polls, the american people, 53-41, apparentlily believe that donald trump can do a better job with the economy. >> right. the poll indicate that this could be a very, very close election. so no matter what one is feeling with the various candidates, the respective candidates, i think so much will depend on turnout. the point of any convention is to not only energize the base but expand that tent and reach other people. paul ryan is in a very good position to do that.
i agree with her, a melancholy tone. this was not the same man we saw before. there was something nostalgic. the tone, the tenor. >> when you listen to what paul ryan was saying, it's this a man who hofs the republican party. cheerily loves america. we saw that when he ran for vice president. and when he was, so many look to him as being the leader of the party. now he's to work donald trump and even at some point, he's had to go out and defend donald trump. and snap him on the happen-- do bode well? >> people need to call as they get together.
that's what it is all about. again, the goal is to really turn our country around. two thirds of americans don't think our country is going in the right direction. i think that's huge. very telling. >> the thing that was a word count done. there were two times as much speeches. when they looked at the word count. one was hillary clinton. two was america. three was donald trump. and four was the economy. fourth. there is no specificity. >> we have to wrap it up there. thank you. >> we'll be right back. stay with us. ♪ ♪

it is official. the republican 2016 ticket is trump-penz. thank you for staying with us or just joining us. if you are, i'm heather childress. >> i'm kelly wright. donald trump is telling the convention that his nomination is a movement, but we have to go all the way, he added. >> let's send it over to rich who is live for us once again in cleveland this morning. another exciting day on tap, but it was exciting yesterday as well, right? >> good morning, heather and kelly. there are still some day two convention goers hanging around downtown cleveland, though mott many. though not many. they are transitioning into the third day of the
republican national convention. the theme for tomorrow or i guess later today, much later today, is make america first again. it is the theme of the donald trump campaign that america has fallen behind and his policies will help correct that. last night the convention heard from two of donald trump's children including eric trump -- excuse me donald trump, junior. trump siblings offered the family side of donald trump. >> for my father impossible is the starting point. that's how we approach his business projects. that's how we approach his life. whether it is teaching his granddaughter how to swing a golf club or tackling the toughest negotiations, he is always fully committed. >> whatever he does he gives his all and does it well. his desire for excellence is contagious. he possesses a unique gift for bringing the trait out in
others starting with those closest to him. he has always helped me be the best version of myself. by encouragement and by example. >> so that was tiffany trump and donald trump, junior. we will hear from eric trump. it is a big family and with former speaker of the house newt gingrich and the running mate on the republican ticket, mike penz, the indiana governor. last night was supposed to focus on the economy and instead it turned to hillary chin be to. hillary clinton. the former mayor of new york city played a couple nights previous essentially being the attack dog against the democratic ticket. the convention officially and finally nominated donald trump last evening. it was the closes -- closest republican nominee since the 1970s. there were other officials who spoke including the house speaker, paul ryan and the senate majority leader mitch mcconnell. the two top elected republicans in the united states who have also at times
aired their differences publicly with donald trump. both supported him and both endorsed him, but thisy have taken issues with his rhetoric and policies. we expect to hear more from that much later today as the republican national convention hits on its third day to "make america first again" the theme dealing with america's position in the world. >> all right, looking forward to it. thank you so much as always. we'll check back with you. don't go far. >> i won't. the convention will hear from a number of other speakers on wednesday in addition to governor penz. >> it will feature one of the most highly anticipated speakers of the convention, senator ted cruz. will he throw his support behind donald trump? joining us from cleveland is the bureau chief at talk media news and a fox news contributor. ellen, good for you to stay out there in cleveland.
>> you deserted us though. >> it is my hometown. >> she likes to be close to the action. she is. so what do you say about senator ted cruz? will he make nice or will he go ahead and make a plan to announce for 2020? >> rumor has it that he is not going to announce for 2020, but he will try and pave the road for 2020. that means that he might be talking a little about donald trump. he will be talking more about the values and where the republican party goes. that is going to be his way of , again, making room for himself just in case donald trump doesn't win this election, then ted cruz sees himself as the guy who can win the nomination in 2020. >> he also has some very poignant things to say about the media. he says the media has always taken -- have gone out -- it is early in the morning, isn't
it? >> or late. >> he said the media has tried to attack him on his christian values, and because of that he believes that many in the media and many have looked at him as being some sort of theocratome whacked out person is what he said. >> well, they can blame the media all they want. the media has done a lot of free committees meant so -- free advertisement for hillary clinton. whether it is negative or positive, she's has gotten a lot of media attention. the fact is that part of donald trump is that he has already been in people's living rooms. people vote for who they want in their living rooms for the next four years. he has been there with "the apprentice" and they know him. i don't think the free media is the issue as much as it is what donald trump was saying and what ted cruz was not saying. >> so tomorrow night when ted
cruz takes the stage many will be watching with anticipation about what he might say. i know you can't speak for him, but it it seems likely that he will try to make some sort of opportunity to unify the party, don't you hing? >> if i were him i would take the unity position. he is certainly going to talk about republican values. in that way he might try and weave in some donald trump ideas. that would be good for the party. there is no question about that. i think he is also going to branch out a little bit on his own just to say, hey, guys, if donald trump doesn't make it, i'm your next guy. i think that is what he will rye to do and knowing ted cruz, that is what he will do. >> and let's keep in mind that one of his good friends, in fact, a man who endorsed him, and who is now the vice presidential nominee, mike pence from indiana, both stated clearly and publicly that they are christian first and conservative and in that order.
>> well, you know, that's not terribly surprising. i remember that linda main johnson said he was first a free man and being a democrat was third or fourth down on the list. that's not surprising. you may say they took that from lyndon johnson. i don't know who they took it from. the fact is he is somebody who is an american, and in that respect he's got to be loyal to american values and interests. as they say in the state department, we don't have permanent friends and permanent enemies. we only have permanent interests. >> on that line he and governor pe nce get along -- pence get along and push for unity. >> you can push for unity and not necessarily -- >> enjoy yourself in cleveland. i know we are missing your private parties. >> thank you. >> hillary clinton is not
taking the week off. she spoke yesterday in ohio and today in las vegas. it comes as sources tell fox that she has narrowed down her picks for vice president. just happened to leak that out. on the short list we are told the current virginia senator and tim kaine and secretary of agriculture and former iowa governor tom millsack. joining us is a gop strategist, but right now in november he is planning to vote for hillary clinton. how are you doing and good morning? >> how are you doing? >> i'm doing great. first of all her response to what is going on at the rnc and clearly an attempt to grab the attention away from the convention. >> not only that, hillary clinton is trying to get as many people in the media asking is this a circus, and is this a joke? if she can get that to happen, then soon the question becomes
the reality, and that would be the narrative that she wants to come out of the -- out of cleveland. >> let's talk about her two potential vp picks. first of all let's begin with kaine. your opinion. >> kaine has a huge problem. he received $1 -- $160,000 worth of gifts. i don't think she wants two candidates on the president and vice president side accused of pay to play. you have tom vilsack is the cure to insomnia, but a continuation of obama which is donald trument p is hitting hillary on. that's a problem. she is also rumored to be looking at james devritas who would shorer up on national security and say i fought for this country for decades and he has the most experience out of any vp contenders. then there is the governor of colorado. he owns a microbrewery that is
very good in denver. and then he became the mayor of denver and he is the governor of colorado. he has a 60% approval rating across the state. >> who do you think is the best out of those you just named? jay i think hillary -- >> i think hillary clinton would be benefited by devritas now that isis is pushing in europe. >> we have to talk about this. you are a gop strike that jest and you -- strike strategist and voting for hillary clinton. is that still the case and what would it take for you to vote for the trump-pence ticket? >> donald trump has had months to convince me and failed to do that. never trump means that. that goes through election day. i really do not want to be voting for hillary clinton, but in my opinion donald trump is worse and cannot be allowed near the white house. think of it as you are in a burning building. with trump you can jump out at the 20th floor and hillary you can jump out at the third
floor. both are unattractive options, but one is worse than the other. trump's campaign has divided the country and divided the party. he has made no attempts at unifying us. he was attacking john kasich just yesterday and i don't see anything that is -- >> what about his pick of governor pence as a vp pick? does that do anything to help bring you over or perhaps unify the party? >> i like governor pence a lot and i have a lot of respect for him, but the ship as sailed. the star of david tweet where he defended it after the fact, you have him saying the judge could not give an impartial ruling because of his race, every single instance where he has divided republicans and americans and never turned around and apologized. >> you theng it is worse than hillary clinton lying about her private e-mail server or lying about the e-mails she received being classified? >> let's look at the two
candidates. again i am not a hillary clinton fan and it pains me to say this, but hillary clinton is somebody who wants to expand the size of the government. donald trump is somebody who wants to take over the government and rule almost in a dictatorial sort. >> the famous picture of the tanks rolling up the street to crush the tiananmen square protestor donald trump was rooting for the tanks tanks and i cannot support that. >> some would also say the policies and the decisions that hillary clinton made when she was secretary of state has gotten us to the state we are now with isis on the rise, and the world in a state of danger for americans and for people all over the world. >> yes, hillary's policies have not been good and beneficial to the country. i don't think donald trump's policies will work. he talked about tactically nuking places et cetera. >> thank you so much, evan. appreciate you joining us. >> thank you. joining us again this hour
, the campaign advisor to hillary clinton in 2008, judith miller from the manhattan institute of policy research and a pulitzer prize winning author and the correspondent for the conservative review. we have been watching the entire events for the past two days. we have talked about are they on message in terms of the economy and getting america back to work? are they on message for making america safe again? the republican party, what is at stake for them? should they not come out of this convention unified and able to move forward in terms of as donald trump says making america great again? >> what's at stake is what we are currently witnessing now, a lack-luster economy, concerns about national security and worldwide security and jobs. so many more people are on
food stamps now. so many people are out of the workforce. these are the circumstances that we are facing now. we are looking at smaller government. kelly, lower taxes, less regulations. these are the pro-growth solutions and the pro-growth policies our country needs in order to turn our economy around for job creation and lower taxes. that's the direction we need to go in. >> i will bring up a point real quick. donald trump, junior, in his statement, said his dad wants to create an america where all people can be prosperous. when he said that he was very inclusive about it. he was not excluding anyone because of race, ethnicity orie ridge -- or religion. he tried to include everyone. people even stated that donald trump senior, the nominee, should be more like his son in terms of tone and tenor and in terms of speaking. >> there has been lots of talk within the campaign that his
own children including donald junior and eric and tiffany and melania have told him to be less trump. it is now the party of trump and the power of the party of trump is celebrity rather than an emphasis on the party which has done very well by itself. let's not forget the republicans still control 31 state houses. the house, the senate. this is the party that could be very, very powerful, but has chosen not to work with the democratic president and the result has been something the american people don't like. we have two candidates whom the american people seem not to like and perhaps what we should do at election day is hand out clothes pins. >> you said something very key. as we were watching earlier throughout the night we saw
frank luntz with his media polling and the pollster was talking about the undecideds. they had a group of undecideds and they had two candidates they can't warm up to. in fact, one voter who was distraught was saying these two candidates are toxic. another lady described the two candidates that these are american presidential candidates and described as two pittbulls at the gates of hell. what does that say to you about the undecideds? they too have to decide who to vote for. >> i think that shows the importance of this convention and the convention for democrats that will take place in philly. when we are through with the democratic convention and you align both of these together and look at who actually unders -- understands the point to reaching out to undecided voters it will become clear. the last two days and what we will see over the next two days has been solely focused at the base of the republican
party. there has not been out reach. there has been platitudess in donald junior's speech about his father representing all-americans but thisy have gone in the opposite direction of the research and the planning they did after they lost the 2012 election. the autopsy report and every recommendation that that report made for the republican party they have gone in the opposite direction. democrats and you will see hillary clinton do it, and they will be talking to undecided voters. that will be the point of next week's convention. maybe we will see that in the next four to eight hours, when you have your kids being the adult in the room, i don't think that it is likely we will see that. >> you are chomping at the bit. wrap it up real quickly. >> i am waiting to hear donald trump talk about his plans when he address dashz dash. >> and we will end it there. >> i will start with you on the panel next time. i promise. >> we did start with her.
welcome back to "toks -- fox news." there is other news that has been going on that we need to talk about. 5 law and order emerging as a major theme. after two police ambushes that claimed the lives of eight officers. now president obama said some local law enforcement officers need more resources. jackie ibanez joins us from
the new york newsroom with that story. hi, jackie. >> hello, heather. security is top of mind following the assassination of police officers in dallas and baton rouge. is -- as they addressed the concern on the campaign trail president obama met with the neation's top cop -- the nation's top cop and the fbi. they discussed ways to better protect law enforcement while bridging the gap between the cops and the communities they serve. >> the more we can do to make sure that these are their police departments and they had an interest in protecting them. these will be for the police officers who do their jobs. >> obama says the police departments nationwide have asked for the additional paining to deal with -- training for active shooter situations and bulletproof vests among other things. >> i appreciate the efforts that have taken place. we have a lot more work to
do. i want to repeat that this is nothing something we have been able to do solely from this office or the justice department or the fbi or the department of homeland security. this is something that will have to be bottom up and not just top down. >> i in a letter -- in a letter written to the nation's law enforcement community mr. obama wrote "as you defend us with quiet dignity we proclaim loudly with appreciation the acts of service you perform as part of our daily routine. we will get through this difficult time together. thank you for your courageous service. we have your backs." some say he had eight years to deliver this message and support men and women in uniform, but instead he spent that time dividing the country. on the same day there was another cop shot and killed in the line of duty in kansas. heather and kelly, back to you. >> our prayers to his family and to law enforcement across the country. >> absolutely. absolutely. two of donald trump's children addressed on
convention night, his youngest daughter and eldest son. >> it was a big day for donald, junior. he was able to announce his father as the nominee and gave a rousing speech in which he went on the attack of hillary clinton. you will hear it in its entirety up next. >> last night one network delivered bringing you fair and balanced insight of the rnc moment. >> it is time to come together. >> we will put americans together. >> 2016 is the year america moves on. >> donald trump is a fighter and i know he will fight for this country. >> what happens next? tonight, don't miss our powerful coverage. plus ted cruz and eric trump and vice presidential candidate mike pence and more take the main stage. there is a reason why we are america's election headquarters. we are number one on all of cable.
welcome back. donald trump's wife, melania, headlined the first night -- headlined i should say. that's the correct way to say it. headlined the first night. >> it is early. >> yes. last night we heard from another family member, donald trump, junior. the speech came a few hours after he cast the new york delegation's vote officially handing his father the gop nomination. here is his speech in its entirety. >> good evening. i'm donald trump, junior. i'm -- thank you.
thank you. i'm the father of five young children from 2-year-old chloe to kai who just turned 9. i am the husband to vanessa, an amazing wife and mother. a son of a great man. [applause]. i am an american, and tonight i want to talk to you about the country we live in. the country our children will grow up in. for my generation this is the most important election of our lifetime. one that will determine the future of our country and in turn the future of the world. for too long our country has ignored its problems punting them down the road for future generations to deal with. in business i was trained by my father to make the tough investments and decisions today to ensure a brighter future tomorrow. we have actually started to believe that solving our great
problems is an impossible task. that's why we need to elect a man who has the track record of accomplishing the impossible. [applause]. for the first time parents no longer think their kid will be as well off as we were. we've lost the confidence in our leaders and the faith in our institutions. remember one thing. we are still americans. we are still one country and we are gonna get it all back. [applause]. we're gonna get it back better than ever before. i know we'll get it back because i know my father. i know that when people tell him it can't be done, that guarantees that he gets it done. i know that when someone tells him something is impossible, that's what triggers him into action. when people told him it was
impossible for a boy from queens to go to manhattan and take on developers in the big city, rather than give up, he changed the skyline of new york. [applause]. i've seen it time and time again, that look in his eyes when someone says it can't be done. i saw that look a little over a year ago when he was told he couldn't possibly succeed in politics. yes, he did. for my father impossible is just the starting point. that's how we approach his business projects. that's how we approach his life. whether it is teaching his granddaughter how to swing a golf club or tackling the toughest negotiations, he is always fully committed. that's why the person who would never office before stood on this stage 11 months ago and in this very arena
with 16 professional politicians, and this week that same man will stand before you as our party's nominee for the president of the united states of america. [applause]. thank you. as a proud son and family member, it was one of the great honors of my life to be able to put him over the top in the delegate count earlier today. [applause]. his unrelenting determination is why he is going to become our next president. it is why i know that when my father says he can fix the country, he means it. you want to know what kind of president he'll be if let me tell you how he ran his businesses, and i know because i was there with him by his side on job sites, in conference rooms from the time
i could walk. he didn't hideout behind a desk in an executive suite. he spent his career with regular americans. he hung out with the guys on construction sites pouring sheet rock and hanging -- pouring concrete and hanging sheet rock. he listened to them and valued their opinions as much and often more than the guys from harvard and warton locked away in the offices away from the real work. he has recognized the talent and the drive all-americans have. he has promoted people based on their character, street smarts and their work ethic. it is not simply paper credentials. to this day many of the top executives in our company are individuals who started out in positions that were blue collar, but he saw something in them, and he pushed them to succeed. his true gift as a leader is that he sees the potential in people that they don't even see in themselves. [applause].
the potential that other executives would overlook because their resumes don't include the names of fancy colleges and degrees. i know he values those workers and those qualities in those people because those are the individuals he had my siblings and me work for when we started out. he would trust his children's for ma tiff years with these men and women says all you need to know for donald trump. we didn't learn from mba's. we learned for people with doctorats in common sense. [applause]. guys like vinny stellio who taught us how to drive heavy equipment and operate tractors and chain saws and worked his way through the ranks to be a trusted advisor of my father. it is why we are the only children of billionaires who are as comfortable in a caterpillar as we are in our own cars.
my father knew that those were the guys and the gals that would teach us the dignity of hard work from a very young age. he knows that the heart of the american dream is the idea that who ever we are, wherever we are from, we can get ahead. where everyone can prosper together. [applause]. the other party also tells us they believe in the american dream. they say we should worry about economic inequality and i'm mobility. you noy what, they are -- you know what, they're right. but they don't tell you that it was their policies that caused the problem. and it was their policies that have no accountability. [applause]. they gave us the worst immigration system in the world. it is one that imports i'm mobility and drives down employment and wages for hispanic americans and african-americans and everyone. an immigration system that favors illegals over those
trying to go through the process legally, and at times even over law-abiding citizens. it was bernie sanders himself that warned a large tide of new workers keeps wages low and poverty high. the other party gave us public schools that far too often tail our students -- fail our students especially those without options. growing up my siblings and i were truly fortunate to have choices and options that others don't have. we want all-americans to have those same opportunities. ]applause [. our schools used to be an elevator to the middle class and now they are stalled on the ground floor. they are like soviet era department stores that are run by the clerks and not the administrators. you know why other countries do better on k-12? they let parents choose where to send their own children to
school. [applause]. that's call competition. it is called the free market. it is what the other party fears. [applause]. they fear it because they are more concerned about protecting the jobs of tenured teachers than serving the students in need of a good education. they can't to run -- they want to run everything from the top down. they tell us they are the experts and they know. the other party gave us a regulatory state on steroids. dodge frank was a thousand pages long and it has spun up 22,000 pages in regulations. imagine trying to digest all of that before you even open your doors for business. that doesn't help consumers.
what it does is destroys small business for big businesses. who can afford the vast number of lawyers and accountants needed to comply. dodd frank is consumer protection for billionaires. [applause]. >> we produced the thickest network of patronage in world history. it is composed by the people at the top. we can't win that one any longer. it is too risky. let me talk a little about risks. the other party is the party of risk. i've spent many times with many great americans who served this country in the military, and they know what's at stake. when we have weak leaders in positions of power, americans risking their lives for our fry domes are less safe. almost daily i get a call or text from a real american hero. his name is mark guiss and i
am proud to call him a friend. mark was part of the security team at the annex on the grounds of conflict in benghazi. mark was one of the men who received frantic phone calls from his buddies at the compounds, calls that pleaded for help, calls that he and his team tried to answer. a call that didn't save all of his friends because secretary clinton's state department ignored their request for help both on the night in question and even in the weeks and the months leading up to the attack. it was a tragedy and one that would be repeated were she to win the election. ask mark who is fit to lead. who has the judgment to lead. who will take that call at 3:00 in the morning. better yet, ask yourselves if you were in mark's shoes that night, who would you rather call?
let me tell you something about risk. if hillary clinton were elected, she would be the first president who couldn't pass a basic background check. it's incredible. hillary clinton is a risk americans can't afford to take. she says she will issue executive orders to take away americans' guns. she wants to appoint judges who abolish the second amendment. just look at how effective those laws have been in inner city chicago. a city with the toughest gun laws in the nation. 3400 american lives have been lost since this administration took office in 2009. you know why the laws failed? because criminals by definition don't follow laws.
[applause]. rather than prosecuting real criminals she would strip hard-working, law-abiding citizens of their right to protect themselves and their families. she will throw every possible obstacle in the path of safe, reliable and affordable energy produced in america, by americans and for american businesses and families. rather than being energy independent our country will be forced to remain beholden to her buddies in the middle east. those are risks we can't afford to take. when we win, we are not going to have to. there is so much work to do. we will not accept the current state of our country because it is too hard to change. that's not the america i know. we will unleash the creative spirit and energy of all-americans. we are gonna make our schools the best in the world for every american and every single ethnicity and background. we are gonna put americans
first, all-americans. it is not a special class of crony elites at the top of the heap. we are gonna elect a president who will work with everyone to pass legislation that will make our country great again. a president p who will give us a tax code that will free the american economy and end special loopholes for the wealthy. a president who will give an immigration law that will protect american citizens and gives them jobs. a president who hillary peel and replace obamacare without leaving our vulnerable citizens without health care and do it without destroying medicare for seniors as hillary clinton a president who knows we can't simply delete our problems, but that we have to tackle them head on. a president who won't allow pc culture to put the safety of our children and loved ones at
stake. a president who won't bow and pander to nations that shudder at the very thought of america's existence. a president more concerned with the safety and comfort of his fellow americans than the feelings of those hostile nations abroad who have given the option -- who if given the option would wipe america off the face of the earth. a president not beholden to special interest foreign and domestic and one who funded his entire primary run out of his own pocket to prove it. a president who will secure and defend the borders of the united states and who will appoint judges who believe that freedom requires a limited government.
cream is, right? you literally have to have these focus groups to determine what is important to you. i think all of us recognize that donald trump at his core knows exactly who he is and knows packly what he wants to do. it is the path that people are so excited and passionate about, the certainty of what hillary clinton would bring the certainty of $23 trillion in debt. donald trump talked about this. schools who can't educate kids, people are excited about the uncertainty of what done malled trump could -- donald trump would bring to the white house. >> a lot of people would be struck by what donald junior had to saivment he said we didn't learn from mba's. we learned from people who had doctorats in common sense. it reminds me of my mother. she said you can get all of the book smarts in the world, but if you don't have common sense and street smarts, you won't go very far in life. it seems that donald trump, junior has echoed the sentiments of his dad which is
having great common sense in addition to having the wherewith all to take risk and have the ability to say the impossible saying i can make it possible if i work hard enough. >> two thoughts, not unlike your mom, i grew up as a farm kid, and recognize that the most important things when you wake up in the morning is not to get your own breakfast and take care of yourself, but to get up and feed the farm animals, the cows and the chicken and the pigs we had and recognize that when you serve something bigger than yourself and in my case it was a farm, that it allows all parties to raise and recognize that core purpose. the second thing and one of the great struggles in government is that we don't reward risk taking. take risk in the private sector in your reward with promotions. take risk in the public sector and you may get a smiley face in the performance review. we have to flip that so people are rewarded for taking risks and getting the government organizations to perform with
the same level of value the private sector can. >> donald junior made it clear about making america work again. he said it is for all-americans. it is not just some americans, but all-americans. his dad would try to bring that prosperity to everyone, and to lift all of the votes from poverty and middle class and it would appear those impoverished and poor school choices and giving them an opportunity to get the better education and to get the better job. >> the only way we as a nation i think donald trump talked about this and he is exactly right, but the great concern is the fact that for the first time in our nation's history, children of the american people believe their children won't have a brighter future than they have today. the number one problem facing our country the american people believe is the government itself. we have to lift all votes for all people and have to get government out of the way so people can excel. >> i want to end quickly talking about saving detroit,
is this a microcosm of in terms of what the national need is 1234 do we have to lift all votes including the detroit which went through bankruptcy or because of failed policy? >> absolutely the case. what you have to worry about when you watch a city that for years spent tens of millions of dollars more than they take -- than they took in. they gave money to the public employee unions and they couldn't possibly afford to pay them back. the largest bankruptcy in american history. if our country does not move away from $20 trillion in debt and bridges falling down and water that isn't safe and schools that teach children you have to worry about what that means four years from now if we don't move to a path of changing how government delivers the services. >> mark ash, thank you very much for joining us this morning. >> why to -- great to be with you, kelly. >> day two is in the books and day three is starting in a few hours from now. >> coming up, final thoughts
or today and the next day are going to be crucial. that's when the base has to get fired up, but they have to do more than that they have to expand it. >> governor pence is scheduled to speak today. and the strength that he can bring to the tickle is of course the economy. but in his speech today, do you think that he'll be able to talk more about that? >> i'm sure he will. he did a good job in indiana as far as their budgeting and spending and job creation. and i thought donald jr. gave a
great motivational speech and i think he is somebody who will be very appeal to go millennials. he also talked about his father, how he was a great role model and mentor to him. i think it speaks volumes. >> a lot of people were saying because of the donald trump children coming forward, people are gaining a new perspective of who donald sr. is. so it speaks well as a great father figure and certainly if you're going to move forward and make a nation great, it has to begin in the home of the people. >> and to that point, so many americans feel so left out right now. this is an anti-establishment wave going on. so you can't really underestimate donald trump. he's appealing to democrats, he's appealing to blue collar workers. >> one of the things that happens is the enthusiasm p. even republicans on the floor in cleveland are saying they have
never seen such crowds in the audience. so i don't know what happened with the enthusiasm gap. we're certainly not seeing it being front and center. >> what would you want to see? how do you define the enthusiasm? what do you think that you would like to see there at the convention on the floor? >> well, the seats have been not necessarily full at all times. the energy, the excitement. i've gone to many conventions and whether you're democrat or republican, the air is electric and there is so much excitement in the hall. and i just think quite frankly not saying this from a by iasse or progressive standpoint, it has been missing and that should be a serious red flag for the trump campaign. >> just to be fair, several people that i've spoken to that are there have a complete and totally different perspective. they think that it is
invigorating. >> and people dancing. >> ultimately if you're conducting a festival of hating hillary, it's hard to get people really in pro happy and enthusiastic. they can be very fired up and angry at hillary, but is that enough to really unite the party, is that enough to bring people together. and i know donald trump who spoke so eloquently as his mother did, you know, about all these qualities of their father, but let's remember what the american people know, and that is that they're talking about a man with three wives and not a man of the people. >> that will wrap it up. fox and friends first at the top of the hour.
. and unbelievable evening. today has been a very, very special day, i'll never forget it, it's something i will never ever forget. i'm so proud to be your nominee for president of the united states. >> over the top. donald trump officially become the 2016 republican nominee for president. >> and his own son donald trump jr. casting the deciding vote to secure his father's mom nation. >> it's my honor to be able to throw donald trump over the top in the
