8:00 pm
you know, that's the message the men and women in both parties have been longing to hear. none of us should think this should be easy. the outcome of the election depends on us. and how we contend with an incredible onslaught coming our way. this won't be america's first glimpse of the clinton machine in action. as bernie sanders can tell you. this time around, she'll have the press doing half of her work for her. the good news is that it won't be nearly enough, not against a candidate that captured attention of the country the way donald trump has. on issue by issue. he and i will take our case to
8:01 pm
the voters, pointing out the failures of the obama-clinton agenda and showing a better way. we'll win the hearts and minds of the american people with an agenda for a stronger, more prosperous america. the establishment think it's a pool of voters giving donald trump a serious look. there are a lot of americans who feel like democratic politicians have taken him for granted. union members who won't have a president who promises to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.
8:02 pm
those miners want an american energy policy. they know donald trump digs coal. it's african americans who remember generations of hollow promises about safe streets and better schools and they know donald trump will fight for equal opportunity and loves educational choice. and hispanic americans respect the law, want jobs and opportunities for their families who know that donald trump will up hold the law and get this economy moving for every
8:03 pm
american. the party of lincoln was founded on equality of opportunity and during these difficult days, it will be our party and our agenda that opens the doors for every american to succeed and prosper in this land. in so many ways the democratic party abandoned those it used to protect. maybe they've become too entrenched in power, so comfortable they lose touch with the normal legislative process. it's simpler to impose their values by executive order or court action and make no mistake about it. hillary clinton has big ideas along those lines, too. as this election approaches,
8:04 pm
every american should know that while we're feeling the president's seat for four years, this election will define the supreme court for next 40. we better think very carefully, very carefully about what this means for our constitution in limited government. elect hillary clinton and you better get used to being subject to unelected power using unaccountable power to take un-constitutional actions. so let me say for the sake of the rule of law, for the sake of the sanctity of life, for the sake of our second amendment, and our god given liberties, we
8:05 pm
must ensure the next president appointing justices to the supreme court is donald trump. and hillary clinton's record on foreign affairs gets even worse. with hillary clinton who helped undo the gains of the troop surge, a staggering failure of judgment that sent isis on the loose. hillary clinton instigated the president's disastrous agreement with the radical mullahs in iran and hillary clinton left americans in harm's way in benghazi and after four americans failed said what difference, at this point, does it make?
8:06 pm
as a proud father of a united states marine, let me say from my heart, anyone who said that, anyone who did that should be disqualified from ever serving as commander in chief of the armed forces of the united states of america. seven and a half years of barack obama and hillary clinton's policies have weakened america's place in the world.
8:07 pm
terrorist attacks at home and abroad, grim, heart breaking scenes from france just a few short days ago. and attempted coup in turkey attest to a world spinning apart. history teaches us that weakness arouses evil. hillary clinton and barack obama's foreign policy of leading from behind, moving red lines, and the rise, rule, and reign of isis are a testament to this truth of history. we cannot have four more years apologizing to our enemies and abandoning our friends. america needs to be strong and
8:08 pm
stage, donald trump will need from strength. donald trump will rebuild our military and stand by our allies and confront radical islamic terrorism and destroy enemies of our freedom. if the world knows nothing else, it will know this. america stands with israel. you know if you looked at the calendar this morning you might
8:09 pm
have noticed the presidency of barack obama ends exactly six months from today. and this much is certain. this much is certain of the obama years. they're not ending well. there seems to be so many things that divide us, so few great purposes that unite us as they
8:10 pm
once did. and it's moments like this, moments when politics fail, that i believe we do well to remember what units us far exceeds anything that sets us apart in america. that we are as we have always been, one nation, under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. should i have the awesome privilege to serve as vice president, i promise to keep faith with that conviction, to
8:11 pm
pray daily for a wise, and discerning heart for who is able to govern this great people of yours without it? my fellow americans, i believe we have come to another destiny and i have faith for the capacity of the american people and faith that god can still heal our land. but we have a choice to make. this is another time for choosing. if you want a president who will protect this nation, confront
8:12 pm
radical islamic terrorism and rid the world of isis, who will restore law and order to the country and give law enforcement support and resources they deserve, if you want a president who will cut taxes, and squeeze every nickel out of the federal bureaucracy, if you want a president that will build strong borders and enforce our laws and if you want a president who will up end the status quo in washington, d.c. and appoint justices to the supreme court who will uphold the constitution we have but one choice, and that man is ready. this team is ready. our party is ready. when we elect donald trump the 45th president of the united
8:13 pm
states, together, we will make america great again. thank you, and god bless you, and god bless the united states of america. >> indiana governor mike pence. you can see donald trump coming on stage. let's listen in. governor pence, a five-term congressman before becoming indiana's governor, a mid western style, joking for those
8:14 pm
of you who don't know me, which is most of you at the beginning of the speech, calling secretary clinton secretary of the status quo, saying this election changed the status quo, one of the biggest lines from pence about the importance of the supreme court are these choices that are going to be made. and standing on the stage where all republicans agreed to support the republican nominee, one candidate not joining him on the stage, ted cruz. >> according to donald trump's kids, for the social conservatives, for establishment, for the rest of the party to get behind this ticket, that is the goal of the
8:15 pm
event. >> that is going to do it for me and bret tonight. . thanks for being with us. our continuing coverage goes on, now. >> and welcome to this two-hour edition of "hannity". mike pence just finished addressing the rnc. we're going to keep it on the screen is our own frank luntz with another focus group of undecided voters. and what is reaction of the panel? >> one phrase to describe mike pence tonight? >> strong. >> very strong. >> credible. >> not fake, false, or phony.
8:16 pm
>> most politicians can do the smile. he said i'm christian, conservative and republican. ted cruz talked about our freedoms, newt gingrich said isis is the real deal. they're the real deal. >> who did not have that positive reaction tonight? >> he said the same old fired used mantras as an independent voter i don't want to hear that. >> you cringed when he said that. why? >> i'm christian and conservative. >> he's conservative, modest and everything donald trump is not. >> does that help your vote choice? >> i love governor pence. i wish he was at the top of the
8:17 pm
ticket. i'd fall through glass and help him. >> i thought it was very generic. and pence is just boring. >> i think he has great balance to this ticket and reaching out to people who are conservative. >> was this a smart choice? >> i think so. >> tell me why. >> he's good to bring the republican party together. >> you think the republican party is going to be united? >> i think it's getting there. if the election is there, i think i'm there because of the speeches tonight. >> three days ago you were nowhere there. >> no. i was not. but open to be persuaded. >> somebody said mike pence brings balance to the ticket. i trust that man. >> so you're nodding your head. who is going on? >> i feel like he had good
8:18 pm
backers today. people spoke that refirmed some of the public party. >> right. he said we're a wounded nation. i had a reagan moment or that kennedy moment. i felt like an american again. >> the constitution has been a big problem the past eight years. >> i think all of the speakers were all executives and had a lot of really great things to say about hichl and have this executive quality i was looking for in a candidate. >> these speeches were very conservative. was it too conservative for you? >> i have a problem.
8:19 pm
i like pence a lot. i wish he was running. people keep saying he's going to add this and that. trump is still the boss. he's going to be his lap dog. >> who moved tonight? towards trump? 2, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10 of you. sean? good night for the g.o.p. good night for donald trump. >> that is a powerful ticket. >> and coming up tonight by the way as we begin our show a little bit late, mike pence went a little bit long, ivanka donald trump, donald trump junior will be here and more as we continue "hannity", stay right there. what's it like to be in good hands? man, it's like pure power at your finger tips. like the power to earn allstate reward points, every time i drive. ...want my number? and cash back for driving safe.

8:23 pm
welcome back to "hannity" we're at the dnc. mike pence just finished addressing the rnc. by the way, ivanka donald trump and tucker carlson coming up tonight. mr. speaker, that was a carefully sculpted, powerful message. >> yes. we went through about seven wraps because what i wanted to say about the world we're in is so important that i wanted it to be just right. and people seem to think it was effective. >> so, not a big deal, this was
8:24 pm
a big night. you also have mike pence. it was interesting to watch frank luntz focus group. >> we were, we sat with donald trump in the back. watching pence. i think it made donald feel good that the delivery, the audience loved it. pence is off to a great start and i think they're going to be able to go around and make a big impact. >> i always said the electoral map doesn't favor a republican. you chastised me a little bit. last time george w. bush ran and won? >> that is because of the way they did it. >> there is a poll out today in washington state. there is a poll in oregon and
8:25 pm
connecticut. >> connecticut is even. >> right. >> i argue trump has a message that could appeal potentially to every part of america if the republicans have the guts to roll up their sleeves, go to newark, go to detroit and chicago and go to california. >> california? >> go to california. >> campaign in california? >> every parent should have the same rights as barack obama and hillary clinton. >> good point. i don't want to talk about a broken record, but we talk about tufrp promises to america. you've got to get republicans that are running for office to buy into it. you don't have the house and senate, is anything like that being discussed? >> let me point out one of the real payoffs of having him pick pence is paul ryan introduces him.
8:26 pm
that is a very big step towards this ticket coming together. i think ryan would be willing to talk through are there 57, maximum 10, things that are big enough and real enough in programs veteran's administration reform through april 30th. i think over the course of august, september, we can develop a program like that. >> what did you make, one person got booed in this loudly. the rnc put out a piece what ted cruz did was classless. seemed like you might have ad libbed, maybe i'm wrong. >> i thought it was funny. ted says look, vote with your conscience. in this particular election here, that can't be hillary
8:27 pm
clinton. in a very strange way for a guy who is a princeton harvard graduate, you have to be for trump because there is no other candidate, ted cruz set up. >> we're talking about the stupidity of the media and you were making fun of them and attacking them after melania's speech. because we do have plagiarism as a vice president. you have a film critic say the g.o.p. convention is the world's largest lynch mob, then, you have rnc harsh rhetoric. george ramos lectures the father of a murder victim on television. >> 80% of the media is the enemy team. they're not neutral. they're the offensive line of the democratic party. they breathe it and they talk
8:28 pm
about it at cocktail parties. they're terrified of the trump-pence ticket. there is a sense of if you're a republican you must be a bad person, it's bologna. >> this is different. trump is a genuine change agent. >> this is brexit for america. you are more confident, i've known you over the years and you've told me before it happens we're going to lose. and one particular conversation says how important a role will that be. >> you open the press night with
8:29 pm
melania who i think did a great job. >> agreed. >> second, don junior hit it out of the park. >> did you see the frank luntz focus group on him? >> i did. >> so then, you get tonight, by the way tiffany got the biggest coverage in the daily mail in london i have ever seen. and pierce morgan, who now runs the daily mail wrote a piece that 10 ways that donald trump could further screw up the establishment. very, very funny. ivanka is on tonight. she gave us a preview. >> and then, tomorrow night you get her father. >> i was worried. >> about what? >> we don't need a sleeper. >> i feel like i've lost my mind. >> you didn't get a sense of humor. have you seen the speech? or any part of it?
8:30 pm
>> no. no. i have a good sense of where he's going. it is going to be part bio graphical, part policy. and in many ways, it draws on acceptance speeches. people don't get this because they see him in these large polls where he's putting on an act and getting the crowd aroused and so very effective and it's still very serious, learning all day long, and when it matters working on a speech they know personal and i think it's going to be a very good speech. >> mr. speaker, thank you. >> great job. coming up we have a really busy night, coming up, donald trump junior, ivanka trump, larry

sean. no pressure. don't think about it. 35 million people, what can go wrong? >> you know we did a focus group right after and people want you to run. a star was born last night, newt gingrich said. >> i have seen that in a couple different articles. people, if you told me they were praising a trump my head was exploding and i had fun with it. i got up there and, you know, understanding the gravity of the situation, it's a big deal. >> were you nervous? >> strangely enough, there is some anxiety but when i got into it, i was fired up. i got home and i figured i'd be exhausted. >> that is a great moment. i was in my bed like this until 4:00 in the morning and i was wired. >> adrenaline junkie. i'm sure part of your work
8:36 pm
world, too. >> the criticisms are so insignificant and petty and partisan. i have to ask you about ted cruz tonight. it's usually the case that nobody is going to speak at a convention they don't endorse. why was he allowed to speak? >> he's going to let him speak an opinion. you see the room people like to create the dialogue about disunity. the best unity is everyone booing him off the stage. the number one goal is to make sure we beat hillary clinton. it's called 10,000 points of conservative dogma. i can understand there are big differences, but it didn't take sense to me. >> i felt interviewing mike
8:37 pm
pence, i always knew he was a smart guy. he really showed tonight what a big asset on your father's ticket. >> my phone was blowing up with conservatives. >> that is big and we spent time with him and got to know him and his family. there are many things that struck great chords with us as well. i remember sitting in his house and his wife is serving us breakfast and warming it up for supper. and we don't want to have that burden on the people of indiana. don't just talk about it but
8:38 pm
practice it. >> i love how in one of the earliest interviews that i had, and i want to go on record saying i predicted it first. it was one -- >> i'm giving you credit. >> i will say this. i thought newell would have been a good vice president. i was stunned. i rarely get shocked because i think i know a lot of these guys. i don't pay that much attention to what governors are doing, though it is working and i'd like to see it applied in washington. so you know, when you look at the record that he has and think, all right, if this can happen in states like ohio and louisiana and all around the country and you can take high deficits and turn them into surpluses, can you do it nationally? >> won't that be nice?
8:39 pm
if all states functioned like the top few? that hasn't happened. when you look at the records in indiana and you can't do it one place and not be able to do it elsewhere. >> do you know what i liked about what you said? in your speech, you said someone tells your dad you can't, you know the light goes on and i was asking about your dad and pence talk about the kids reflect the father in a lot of ways and what
8:40 pm
is the person like at home that raised these great kids? >> of course. that he might be politically correct, but at least he's right. we were very lucky and fortunate and recognized that. you don't see a lot of people that end up reasonably well grounded. i'd like to believe that we are. and they pushed us to work. >> explain that work ethic. explain what the life was like. >> to say we weren't spoiled, it was never a financial spoiler. here is whatever you want get out of our hair, our parents made sure we did things that we understand the value of a dollar and what it meant to work f we're going to work in the company, they're going to tell

someone to build a building or dig a ditch, you better well have done it yourself so you know no one is taking advantage of you in the process. thanking my father not just saying here is a harvard and wharton guys and these are the guys you're going to spend time with. he put us on the ground with the guys he learned about, business from. the builder, it wasn't just about locking up in an office, but getting on site, talking to the guys, pouring concrete, laying sheet rock. we did all of that stuff. and we drove a cater pillar because that is what he made us do. we understand that work. we went to work early and were working hard. and understanding that they subscribe to the theory idle minds can be a big disaster. >> there is a consensus that
8:42 pm
you're the bigger troublemaker by far. >> it wasn't close. yeah. listen. i can argue that is probably not what i can argue. >> it's interesting to say that. at eight years old, i delivered papers and 12 years old, washing dishes friday, saturday, sunday night, 13, a chef, 17, a bartender, then, i can did every job in construction, painting houses, laying tile, framing, roofing. i fell off a roof and became a conservative and knocked sense into me. those things defined me. and when i see 95 million americans out of work and and see we can do fracking and drilling and become energy independent, it ticks me off. >> we have this stuff in our
8:43 pm
backyards and we can give americans jobs. they like us and that is trillions of dollars every year. we can do it sensibly and we can do all that. and now we're never going to do it. >> there are many high-paying jobs available. the national security benefit, you're right. we're not dependent on country that's hate our guts and we have more resources than we have in the middle east. then, we put americans back to work and can export that understand, what are the things about your dad that you want
8:44 pm
people to know that maybe they don't get when your dad is being point or fighting 16 other candidates for the nomination? >> again, no one is funnier than my dad. you know him off the record. you know? to see that personality, you have a time when you can see the sense of humor and the guy he is. on talking about these things to these people that are suffering from the failed policies of the administration we can't pretend we don't have problems and push a button and delete them. >> eric talked about it. you talked about it. it was more than a year ago. coming down the escalator at trump tower, were you thinking he's crazy?
8:45 pm
he can do this? he's going to win? >> i understand the obstacle this was. guys that debated for fun for 40 years in an academic context like that. so if there is one thing i've learned from my father is never second guess him when he puts his mind on something. impossible is just the starting point for him. you know? tell him he can't be done? i've been using that one for years. >> but you can see it. >> he's speaking with them, not at them. >> one in five american families don't have a single family member in the work force. 50 million in poverty. 46 million on food stachs. the country is in decline. that is what this election is going to be about as well as national security issues. >> i agree.
8:46 pm
we want them to be able to take care of themselves your dad asked me who do you like beter? donny or eric? >> he said the same thing about me the other night. i deliver more effectively. >> big competition in the family. >> congrad layings, great job. apparently, the focus group wants you to run. when we come back, don junior's sister, ivanka trump is coming up. and aj dellgado is here. straight ahead. ♪ you can help prevent blindness in undernourished children across the globe by getting your vitamins at walgreens. walgreens. at the corner of happy and healthy.

some top republicans in the country? . >> i think coming down the escalator i was just happy. i was just happy my introduction was done because i was very nervous. after adjusting to that, really, in some ways being naive over what we were in store for was a bit of a blessing because we just digested everything realtime. and just in the moment and enjoyed the experience. >> you weren't thinking ahead? >> well, i will say that i've never seen my father put his mind toward accomplishing a goal and focusing and not get there. so in retrospect i'm not surprised. at the time, we're trying to figure out what it meant for the children of somebody running for president of the united states of america but the reaction of people to him is unsure pricing
9:04 pm
in the sense that i have seen my whole life how he will have a vision, and then, inspire through his leadership, all of those around him to go out and get it and make it happen. and you know, in sort of a way he's do that on a larger scale for the people of the country. he had thoughts on the issues that needed to be addressed. >> it's a family affair. close to your brother don and eric now and have gten to know them. i can kid around with them, but it's collaborative. he speaks your counsel but at the end of the day, its his call. >> yes. >> how forceful are you when it comes to decisions to be made? he taught us to have firm convictions and articulate ourselves and express those sentiments so we certainly do.
9:05 pm
we have a close, loving relationship as a family but worked ahng side of him over a decade as his top executives at our family business. we understand each other. you know, how we know how we operate and how we think as a group. so we always express our opinion, but i think the way my father processes information is he asks people what their thoughts are and internalizes it, thinks about it, and comes to his own conclusion, but he's an unbelievable listener and he appreciates candor, when people don't agree with him, he appreciates. >> i like to be blunt. >> he appreciates that. tell me what he thinks. >> he'll take it or leave it but appreciates people who aren't afraid. >> i interviewed your brothers and both say you were treated better than they were and that
9:06 pm
they were both -- >> that is what they say that your dad was easier on you. is that fair? >> um, i don't know. they try to hold that over my head a little bit. i was a little bit of a daddy's girl, but you know, all of us were an unbelievably close family. and, yeah. so -- but they have ribbed me about that for a few decades. >> don said he got in trouble and you won't get in trouble. >> that happens. >> you've been a model, you're a designer, you've been a tv host. >> yes. >> you graduated with honors from wharton. you're the executive vice president of development for the trump organization, expansion of global real estate. a very significant position in
9:07 pm
your own right. >> most importantly, i'm the mother of three. that is the hardest work of anything i do. >> that is hard, right. i have two kids, it's hard. >> my youngest is three and a half months old and oldest just turned five years old. i'm more exhausted on a monday morning than friday night. >> i go to tennis lessons and this is harder than work. the boston herald had an article saying the kids are the key to softening your father's image but specifically, you. is there a misperception about your dad? >> i think people don't see his warmth and his compassion and he has tremendous warmth and tremendous compassion. he just tends to show those sides of himself in more
9:08 pm
intimate settings and he's a very private person in that regard. for me, it's easier to express all of the amazing things about him as a person and father and he's probably more reserved in terms of expressing those himself. >> one time in his office we're talking about twitter. i expressed a strong opinion. you jumped in. we are talking about social media. seems there is no hesitation to tell him how you feel. you lay it on the line. >> and he does the same to me. >> you said your father, this is toing. everything in politics is broken down demographically. so black vote, and asian vote, women, men. you said your father -- >> my father doesn't think in
9:09 pm
terms of demographics. he thinks in terms of a good person. when he meets somebody, he thinks about are they capable? do they have drive and vision? he looks for the same quality in everyone. it's irrelevant to him what their gender s i know the way he raised me alongside my brothers he never differentiated that boys can go to construction sites and i go hang out with mom at the department store. you know? he never played into stereo types. as long as we're interested he always wanted us to be around. so i grew up walking construction jobs by his side. in my earliest years he never type cast me by gender. later on i went to work in his company where i was surrounded
9:10 pm
by incredible female role models at the highest levels who were accomplishing incredible things. so it's just not how he operates. >> when you see every election year, i can tell you what democrats will say about whoever the republican candidate is. it's predictable. republicans are racist. they're homophobic. they want to poison air, water and want to take your grandmother in a wheelchair and throw her over a cliff. is it hard and painful to hear these things that have been said and will be said about your father? >> it is very difficult, absolutely. i take comfort in the fact that i know my father so there is no question for me. in ways makes it harder because
9:11 pm
so much of negative is fiction. i know in my heart the man and so that helps. >> your brother donny said to me that he wasn't born with a silver spoon in his mouth. you graduated with honors from wharton and you have multiple businesses that are successful. he said there was no option. that you insisted on doing your best in school and business. i'm sure you grew up with some that grew up in money in new york they don't turn out so well. >> he raised us with a sense of gratitude for the privilege that we have and we all recognize we grew up very fortunate. we weren't spoiled in the spence that i think we were grateful for everything that we had but we were spoiled on a relative basis, too to many people around the world. so i think he taught us to be very grateful and taught us not
9:12 pm
to be entitled and that is a key thing. many people i know there is a sense of entitlement to have what their parents earned and he let us know that if we wanted a good quality of life we'd have to work hard to achieve that. >> i saw pictures of you getting into a cab in new york which is, i assume people think you had a driver. my last question for you. and this is a question i've asked your dad a number of times. we've now doubled the national debt. president obama is taking on more debt than every other president before him combined. 95 million americans out of the labor force. that is the worst numbers of the 1970s. we have 14 million more americans in poverty and one in five american families do not have a single member of the family that has a job. i asked your father, how important is it to you to reach
9:13 pm
those people? >> it's important to him. half of the country can't come up with $400 in the event of an emergency. no savings. the sense of fragility financially is oppressive and i think you know we're the first generation who aren't overly optimistic as the generation behind us has the ability to do better than we did and that has got to change. so he had tremendous civic drive but what is different now is that he felt like he kopt wait any longer and he won't wants to help people and he wants to help this country. he knows what he is capable of
9:14 pm
doing. the only thing my father disl e dislikes is incompetence. >> will you and your brothers go to the white house with him? >> one day at a time. we're very busy now running our family business but it is an unbelievable opportunity to create change on a major level. we take it one day at a time. >> thank you so much. >> thank you. thank you. >> joining us now with reaction from the washington examiner, lisa booth, and kelly ann comeway and doug shoen.ñy="i á ko today. these kids are skyrocketing in every focus group, they're amazing kids. i know them all. i have known don and eric well,
9:15 pm
they're all great in their own way. what an asset to donald trump. full measure of the man. they won't listen to one insult or one thing he said and how he said it. and sean, can't we agree that at the end of your hive -- life who are great family people and loving and generous of spirit, then you lived a great life. >> you can't fake great kids. >> it's a great line. >> you can't fake great kids. >> i know doug shoen, you see how powerful these kids are connecting. it makes you nervous, doesn't it? >> he led a great life, and raised great kids. that doesn't make him qualified to be president and doesn't make him more electable when ted cruz did what he did tonight, which was self destructive and harmful
9:16 pm
to donald trump. >> but that has to hurt ted cruz not donald trump. >> secretary clinton uses that against him, watch. >> we're seeing democrats do what they do best. the demogouging. it makes it hard to have these kids as third party validators. when you have them speaking about the father they know and his leadership skills and business acumen, that helps him tremendously. >> this idea of qualifications, to discuss in 2008 because unqualified barack obama was running. >> yes. radical i kept talking about? that guy? >> you dared say well, i don't know if he has experience. this is not an experience election it's a change election. we have to talk about
9:17 pm
qualifications. you asked people randomly what are donald trump's qualifications? he's employed thousands of people. as people when were constituents in new york what where the three greatest accomplishments, you want to get new yorkers stuttering right away? >> i did this to poor doug. i let you off the hook more than others. somebody say hillary has done this, this, and this. i say name three things she's done to improve the lives the american people. then, we play "jeopardy" music and they can't answer. nobody ask answer, ever. >> we have jeopardy music. >> she does not have
9:18 pm
accomplishments. >> she doesn't have accomplishments. >> i like honesty. >> you guys are going nowhere. more with our panel right after the break and checking back in with frank luntz and focus group right here if ohio. also, he's got glasses on, beard is long. the one, the only phil robertson is in the house. dr. loudoun is here, more straight ahead.

9:22 pm
we bring back frank luntz and his focus group of undecided voters. did i get it right that 10 people shifted tonight? that were undecided for trump and pence as a result of the great night they had here? >> yes. and it's moved towards pence. i'd like to start with the powerful clips of pence. let's take a look at the highlights of the evening. >> idea is presenting the exact opposite of an uncalculating truth teller, then, on that score you've got to hand it to the democratic establishment. they outdid themselves this time. hillary clinton wants a better
9:23 pm
and i would, too, if i was america's secretary of the status quo. >> okay. i think he took people perceive as negative, which is how out spoken trump is and how truthful and honest he is. >> it brings out a point these not a politician in this race. >> people are tired of washington. secretary clinton has been the queen of washington for a generation. these been in washington a quarter century. that indicates she has more experience than just about any candidate. >> she was secretary of state. she was first lady, united states senator from new york and you're telling me she has no experience? >> her track record is awful. >> she has horrible experience.
9:24 pm
taking a look at being there is not success. she told the mother of american hero sean smith it was a you tube video. i am an educated american. how can a you tube video cause a death of your son? what mike pence tonight. >> what he said is that we need to tackle radical islam. >> but you voted for bernie sanders. >> i know i did. he reminded me of like, okay -- >> your father is a socialist? >> what this moment kind of did is still the fact that she's not going to be a changed candidate. people are looking for a
9:25 pm
positive change. >> she's a liar, a blatant liar. she is a liar. >> the message is getting through. this is music to republican ears. there are a few of you who aren't so positive. who are they? >> it doesn't mean we still want trump. trump needs to do something to show us why we want him. >> do you agree? >> yes. >> people have this irrational exuberance. it's at the end of the day. >> all i want to say is thank you for cleaning up language. go ahead.
9:26 pm
>> i like his speech, and everybody thinks is going to be better but he's going to be his lap dog. >> i think the republican party is showing a strong united front. at the end of the day, trump is still kind of a sleaze bag. >> you're telling me you're moving into his direction but describing him negatively. >> i think pence is going to bring back to trump that it needs. >> i think he can bring unpredictability out of trump. >> one more, we're going to go to ted cruz. >> i think pence brings sanity and you can't be fired from the job of vice president. i think he will have input.
9:27 pm
>> a key moment was the nonendorsement from ted cruz. did you like that? who liked it? what is so positive about that? >> it's the principles. >> this is the republican national convention. >> people have come out in november. >> i feel like if cruz endorsed trump it would have felt fake. >> again, one of the most successful moments and i want to remind viewers the more powerful the statement. above an 80 it's a political home run.
9:28 pm
let's take a look at ted cruz at his best. >> if you love our children, stand, speak, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedoms and to be faithful to the constitution. >> he wasn't fake and he's -- i would have voted for him. >> does this impact your opinion of donald trump and mike pence? >> donald trump invited him to speak, he invited them because they were his competitors and came together. >> do you agree with that? >> i do. absolutely. >> that is what a strong leader
9:29 pm
does. >> so you actually feel better? a lack of endorsement makes you feel better? they were all home runs. all home run hitters. governor scott walker was a home run. what stuck with me is your freedom has been taken away. okay? >> we have seen people are not here and refused to do that. these people did come and they're holding true to the pledge. >> yes. >> that makes you feel better about donald trump? >> it makes me feel better about the republican party. >> that is pretty good.
9:30 pm
>> that is okay, one more, then we're going to go to the surprise of the convention. >> the pron lem is they're hitting policies. it's not working for me. >> you're i'm voted out. >> one res dent. that is the faithful. liberty and freedom. right now. >> you know, we can use and we don't use -- hold on, hold on.
9:31 pm
one individual surprised a lot of you here. that is donald trump junior. do you have a clip that scored very high among most people here and i want to get into what is so powerful and influential. >> the other party tells us they believe in the american dream. they say they should worry about economic immobility. but they don't tell you their policies caused a problem and that had no accountability. >> so let's wrap this up. trump, clinton or no votes. who votes for clinton? who for trump? who doesn't vote? there is movement here i hear it
9:32 pm
in the voices and what they're saying. donald trump is going to need a great speech tomorrow for him to really score. am i correct? >> back with us now is lisa booth and doug shoen. kelly ann, this is what you do. is this what you're focus group is show something. >> more or less, yes. this got positive reviews. >> did you see the dredge report? you know, i mean -- >> that is my point.
9:33 pm
and i don't want to lose the fact that america met mike pence tonight and and i always knew him on the periphery. i like he spoke to the tea party. >> they began everything, everything. >> what did you think? >> look. mike pence has a phenomenal record and working to balance the budget, those are things he should have talked about and he did because what donald trump is talking about is leadership. and you look at americans and they're walking around. they're going to leave a country that is worse off for future generations. you look at pennsylvania, and
9:34 pm
ohio, and so that is what make pence talked about. >> this is an insurge skwensy here. >> a good line. >> here is the problem, frank spoke about the indecision and uncertainty people have, granting you fully people want change. but the problem with tomorrow's speech is going to be there is another big story breaking. donald trump said today that he wasn't sure he'd enforce article five to defend the ballotic countries which are full members of nato in the event of a russian invasion. this is a big deal.
9:35 pm
>> we're going to get lectures on national security. >> $150 billion super pac. >> you know what? they spent all of this money in the primaries against donald trump. hillary spent a hundred million dollars. >> so tomorrow -- >> not true. >> look at "wall street journal." >> 92% of mesh americans believe hillary clinton broke the law or did something wrong. 56% believe the fbi should have brought an indictment. >> he's a horrible candidate. and getting worse by the day.
9:36 pm
>> here is the difference. >> we have to take a break. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> when ke come back, more reaction tonight three of the rnc convention. phil robertson has his sunglasses on. it's not that light in here, he'll join us next. we continue live from cleveland straight ahead. ♪

9:38 pm
9:39 pm
the american people are tired of being told that this is as good as it gets. they're tired of hearing politicians tell us that we'll get to that tomorrow while we pile up a mountain range of debt on our children and grandchildren. as ron called reagan used to say, they're tired of being told a little intellectual elite with plan our lives better for us than we can plan for ourselves. in the end, this comes down to two names on owe the ballot so let's resolve here and now that hillary clinton will never become president of the united states of america. >> that is republican vice presidential candidate mike pence addressing rnc tonight.
9:40 pm
here with reaction, two men behind the movie torch bearer. i don't have a decision named after me. and phil robertson with us. good to see you, too. >> thank you. >> you know, i know you supported ted cruz which is fine. >> you know? people have different choices. it was 17 guys. >> i want to focus on mike pence. if you love ted cruz, you're going to love mike pence.
9:41 pm
>> you're a surrogate and out spoken voice for him. >> mike pence is the man for this time. he's the most conservative candidate. >> i agree. i had in idea how much i would like him. >> you're going to love him. >> i was beyond impressed. >> all of them, all of them should step up. they said they would and should all endorse the guy who won. >> i had you debating your son on this program. you stepped up.
9:42 pm
why are they sore losers? >> all candidates that ran for nomination process, the one who's lost should step up. to fall off a cliff. >> how about we see the list, the supreme court justices. very impressive. how about getting rid of obamacare? isn't that enough? >> there is no question about that. the other day she said she's going to over turn. >> it's never going to happen.
9:43 pm
she's not going to win. police officers are being murdered and she's talking about creating a 28th amendment. her priorities are screwed up. >> i'm going to ask the question another way. if you look at republican mat form it is the single most conservative in the history of the republican party. who did that? donald trump. >> he did that. >> yes. he did. >> ted cruz is wrong saying he's not conservative. >> this is what i want cruz supporters to know. what did he do on the first
9:44 pm
position? he selected not just a conservative, but a conservative warrior. >> there is something, i think one of the best, smartest, brightest moves that was made by donald trump was releasing the names of the people that he wants to replace and any other vacancy. how much is at stake there? >> good call. >> brilliant move. and now, we know we can trust him. >> and platt form, too. mike pence too he has steve
9:45 pm
moore r moore. >> you say, are you going to see since mr. trump is not as conservative as i am. it not a good argument. it's not. it's like me running around and thinking since sean hannity isn't as involved as i am. >> this is a history. so i go down and we're having a great time. he's in that -- that chair needs to be cleaned man. that is one dirty chair.
9:46 pm
>> so you're sitting in the chair and have good book out with the letters in red. and you go hannity come on back. you have a swamp in the backyard and want me to go on a swamp with alligators in it. >> and film it on fox news. >> thank you hear about the poor kid at disney? i saw alligators on that swamp. >> you wanted to dunk my head. >> go to the river. the lord will protect themselves. >> that is what we do in the film. >> he is dunking people. >> right. >> you know what? i heard about this. i'm involved in a movie project.
9:47 pm
and ef one in america should watch torch bearer. my nephew wrote it. >> you guys have done great work. >> yes. >> how are things at home? >> great. >> yes? >> how is willy? >> where is jaycee? >> he hangs close. you know? i called you at 7:00 in the morning and there is a big controversy and jaycee goes shh and listen, bam.
9:48 pm
that is the whole conversation. >> guys love you all. thanks for joining us. more as we continue live from ohio, stay with us. i thought i married an italian. did the ancestrydna to find out i'm only 16% italian. so i went onto ancestry, soon learned that one of our ancestors was eastern european. this is my ancestor who i didn't know about. allstate offers a't imagine 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.

9:50 pm
9:51 pm
donald trump believes, as you believe and i believe, that we can become great again! but we can only become great again if we have strong leadership! [ applause ]
9:52 pm
and i can think of no stronger leader, who will place their left hand on a bible that they believe in, raise their right hand, and solemnly swear to faithfully execute the office of president of the united states, and to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the constitution of the united states than donald j. trump! >> we're back in cleveland, ohio, and the quicken loans arena. that was my buddy, the reverend darrell scott, tearing the house down tonight and he joins us tonight. do people know that you guys are married? here's the thing, you married so out your league. >> it's unbelievable. >> how did he get her? >> that's what i'm thinking.
9:53 pm
>> that's a compliment. >> you tore it up. i loved it. you have been talking about your church, and i'm going to come down one day -- >> and bring a message. >> i'm going to bring a message. i studied theology in latin, but they told me they didn't want me in the priesthood. so now i'm like a baptist. >> whosoever will, let him come, everybody but you. >> for an irish catholic, there's no way. >> you did a great job. i was very impressed tonight. >> if i was a clock, you would have nailed me to the wall. >> i've got to tell you, i have been to a lot of conventions. between the trump kids, trump family, mike pence, that man right over there, this is really turning into a masterful convention. >> tonight was a huge night for donald trump.
9:54 pm
>> i agree. >> we saw the tension in the room obviously with the ted cruz speech. but at that moment, i think it energized, in a very strange way, the trump supporters, and those that were waiting for that endorsement from ted cruz. it was a pivotal moment, because it really changed -- it really made it real that donald trump is the nominee. and guess what? we've got to back him up. >> you know what the rnc said? good for them, good for reince priebus. he called it classless. i thought he hurt himself for the long-term. he made a pledge, a vow that he would endorse. he had the opportunity tonight. he was given the opportunity by donald trump's campaign. they didn't have to give it to him. i thought that was just -- why would you do that? >> it's not a decision i made. donald trump we have to get behind 100%. when i think about the supreme court openings and the troubles the country has. but there something else here.
9:55 pm
by the way, that was not a trump response, it was an everybody else. >> and how great was newt when he came out? >> he had to do cleanup for ted cruz, and that's a unique role for newt. >> that's my buddy. >> the point is, we have to let that sink in. that was the reaction he got. at the end of the day, we have to pull together. >> pastor, if i give you my word, and i make a promise or a solemn vow and i break it like that, what does that say about me? >> you're saying just what i was thinking. not only did ted cruz -- john kasich did the same thing. but listen, these are the christians of the convention, part of their platform is "i am a conservative christian" and you turned out to be a conservative liar. >> this is the most conservative republican platform. donald trump, in the history of
9:56 pm
the republican party. the johnson amendment was huge. >> having worked on platforms a lot of times, i think there's nothing -- conservatives cannot find an excuse not to get there. mike pence has a 99% rating as a conservative. the excuses are falling away. the never trump movement is getting smaller and smaller. >> and pence was inspirational. he was reaganesque. that's where ted cruz lost his opportunity, to just step up to the plate. so really to see pence just take on the role as vice president, it provided hope for the conservatives. and i think it really gave us a sense that we're ready, we're ready to unite. it's time. trump is a man of our time and needs to win in november. >> you really want me to preach at your church? >> yes. preach on acts 2:38.
9:57 pm
>> if i start speaking spanish, russian, italian, french -- somebody has to interpret my tongues. >> i'll interpret it. >> all right, guys. good to see you. that's all the time we have this evening. as always, thank you for being with us. tomorrow night, right after donald trump finishes, we'll be right on the air right here in cleveland, ohio. thanks for being with us.
