tv On the Record With Greta Van Susteren FOX News July 21, 2016 4:00pm-5:01pm PDT
convention and, don't forget tonight america's election headquarters. complete coverage of the republican national convention 10:00 p.m. eastern time. but right now greta goes "on the record." this is a fox news alert. tonight is the night. 13 months ago they said he couldn't do it. 10 months ago they said he couldn't do it. in january they even said he couldn't do it. but here we are. july 21sts 2016 and he has ton it. yes, the night republicans or at least most republicans have been waiting for. in just about three hours donald trump will take the convention stage and make it official. he will accept the republican nomination for president. earlier today donald trump and his daughter ivanka, who will introduce her father tonight, walked through the arena and right now you can begin to feel the energy and the excitement united states this arena. but last night, different story. boos filled the air when senator ted cruz snubbed
trump and didn't endorse him. >> if you love our country, and love your children as much as i know that you do, stand and speak and vote your conscience. vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the constitution. we will unite the party. we will unite the country by standing together for shared values by standing for liberty. god bless each and every one of you and god bless the united states of america. [crowd boos] >> well, then this morning senator cruz offered this explanation. >> i am not in the habit of supporting people who attack my wife and attack my father. >> and that pledge was not a blanket commitment that if you go and slander and attack heidi that i'm going to none the less come like a
sur puppy dog and say thank you very much for my wife and my father. >> former speaker of the house newt gingrich goes "on the record." how are. >> how are you. >> before we get to donald trump or even introducing him, governor sarah palin said that ted cruz speech last night was a career-ending one. was it? >> who knows? america is a country of many come backs. it was pretty stupid and pretty insulting. if somebody gives generous and invites you into their home you don't walk over and pour acid on their flowers fsmght cruz felt as deeply as he said this morning, he shouldn't have been here. but to come here, you have a thousand delegates and alternates who want to elect the next republican president. tried to tell the press this morning we are hardly divided it was a thousand to 1. he is still defending his decision to do that. so i guess that he will have four years to think about it.
>> or 8. >> or 8 indeed. okay. donald trump tonight is he going to be out here. everyone said it couldn't happen. so much for the pundits, right? >> all the people up into what was going to happen this november didn't know last? women vote more than 50% of the vote. he has had a rough ride to put it lightly when it comes to women and secretary of state hillary clinton has a commanding lead with women. he has got to get more of the women vote and does he do that tonight? >> he began a little bit monday night with melania. i think tonight with ivanka he goes another step. i think that his own speech has to communicate a commitment and a vision that people are attracted to whether they are men or women. over the next couple months, there have a lot of the various polling data something like 72% of brind women think hillary clinton is a liar. she has a lot of lurents
that i think way her did you know. wouldn't okay particularly assume she would be the women's candidate. >> i'm gh i'm assuming we are hot going to hear okay of the things in the past remarks about people personally but yiewnk he will resist being able to say something about ted cruz? >> i hone hes to. i so he no ren for him to engage hillary clinton. he already did feeted ted cruz. go to a very positive definition of the america he wants to lead. >> do you have any idea how is he getting into this? he had a surprise entrance with his wife. >> no idea. he ought to consider riding in an elephant. they gawrted that. >> actually, that might not be a good idea. >> my guess is, first of all, ivanka is going to introduce him. my guess is he will walk on, embrace her and go to the podium. >> okay. so between now and november, how does he win ohio and florida?
>> well, first of all, ohio is tied as of this morning. i think he wins the same way he is going to win everywhere. he wins on jobs. he wins on take-home-pay. he wins on affordable healthcare. he wins on safety. he wins on being the law and order candidate at a time when people are very uncomfortable when you have policemen being ambushed and policemen being assassinated. >> governor kasich isn't here and ohio being so important would they be more than tried with trump do you think he could or would have helped. >> he is in a dirn place than cruz. in his hoj state cleveland by the way has been fabulous. you would have thought the home state governor as a courtesy would have shown up on monday to welcome everyone. it's eeshed would that he hasn't. >> i know you are not in the business giving secretary of
state hillary clinton -- make the announcement tonight. if you were socket clinton who would your pick be. >> senator kim contain. >> i which i the letter is increasing l. owe posing. she might go to vilsack. in a sense concluded she has to have a male and probably doesn't have available latino who is well enough known nationally to fill the ticket up. so my guess is she is probably going to go either to one of those two. c.p.a. orrville sack. >> co-host of america's newsroom martha maccallum is on the convention floor and the excitement is growing down there as we get closer to donald trump. martha is with the new york delegates. what is it like there? >> hey there, greta. we are probably in the busiest section of the floor
right now new york which for a change is front and center. we haven't seen any real enthusiasm around the new york delegates entire conventions. usually stuck somewhere in the back there is a bit of an irony here when you think about what ted cruz said last night and the fact there is boos. peter king said the boos emanated from this area last night. york is fired up tonight about donald trump. >> absolutely. donald trump is our candidate from new york. not all of us supported him all the way but now 100 percent were behind him 100 percent. not too crazy about donald trump drashing last nights. >> it came back to unite him. >> in terms of thed me of the rnc meeting, very caulk vep relaxed. governor perry former cab democrat himself. he gave government perry a hard time about calling him cancer on conservatism. apparently they were able to joke about that. look at
the candidates who ran and the ability to put some of that to rest. governor perry certainly has even though he was one of the early people who really pushed back against donald trump. the be a moss city we saw last -- animosity is reflected when in what we saw today. seem to come together and donald trump is in a good place in terms of what kind of mood he is. in we saw him earlier today. he came out and tried out the podium it is black with gold trim. a very trumpian look for this podium. he will deliver from what we're getting the sense of from the campaign of what they have put out so far, the speech will focus very strongly on law and order. it's a narrative that he has built really since he began his campaign and talked about the southern border. and that narrative built all the way through the kate steinle murder that was so horrific in san francisco that he became so passionate about and going all the way through san bernardino and orlando and now it is happening to police officers in our city. he basically will say that basic safety of the people
in this country is fundamental. you can't have prosperity until you have that. and that he is focused on restoring law and order to the country. that at the present time it's the most element tall responsibility of the pacht. without that you have a tough time to do anything sells. >> look for him to look extensively and give numbers and move on to the next topic. more from the floor. back to you. >> donald trump is soon to be at at the helm of the republican party. mitch mcconnell goes "on the record." divonk, sir. >> good evening. greta. >> there is a few straggler that hasn't got on the trump train. >> a fee. >> broad is -- i think we have a great united party going into the general election, people are
enthusiastic about the trump candidacy now. whether they were earlier or not and i'm pretty excited about it all. >> i want to talk about the speed bumps in connection with senator ted cruz's speech last night not endorsing getting booed. donald trump also made a another comment yesterday about nato saying that before he automatically jumps to the defense of a nato ally he wants to make sure they have fulfilled their obligation. that's guided some of the republicans. i disagree with that i think nato is the most important military alliance in world history. i want to assure if any of them are attacked we will be there. i imagine y attention to the hillary clinton vp choice. pick some senators may have impact whether or not you have extra senator. >> if she were to pelc senator cain i don't know what happens after that whether the governor appoints someone or special
election. could open up another seat. >> elizabeth warren republican governor and cory bookie has republican governor. >> my questions is she is no, sir going to pick somebody in a state with a republican governor, i don't think she will do that. >> are youoing to keep the snalt? >> yes. it's going to be hard. we have 24 up. 10. 6 to 8 of them are in competitive races. good news is grateful incumbents winning a tense campaign. >> during our talk the dancing on the floor has started. music and dancing, that's a good sign, right? >> absolutely. >> donald trump says is he law and order. is that a big theme this year among republican voters? >> i think so. when you see what's happening on the streets of america and streets of europe, whether it's -- whether the terrorist's acts are fomented by domestic terrorists unrelate to do isil or whether it's isil inspired, i think people are
worried about safety in their observe communities. i think they expected president of the united states to stand up for many women in blue and go after isil over in iraq and syria. >> you have worked with secretary of state hillary clinton back when she was notice u.s. senate. what are your thoughts of her in terms of law and order and senator. seen by some as iraqish. >> dwelling, shear is not, think think her policies are similar to domestically and overseas. real live if people want to change there is only one vote can you cast to get a genuine change from the direction we have been taking the last eight years. if people are satisfied with where we are in newark, they ought to sloot for hillary clinton. if they think we can do better, donald trump is the candidate. >> a year ago would have you guessed donald trump would be your party's nominee. >> i wouldn't have guessed
it you this is exirch different of bother they got one highly were experienced insider to be running mate nice balanced ticket. >> the pundits didn't expect that either. >> senator, nice to see you. >> nice to see you, greta. >> tonight is without a doubt the biggest night at the convention both outside the arena and inside on the streets. griff jenkins is live in the middle of a growing protest. griff? >> hi, greta. that's right. we are a few blocks from the cue arena. just the public square behind me a group that's within the most vocal. you see their lines, america would never break, they are owe opposing trump. doing so peacefully. we see it peacefully. it an important thing and testament to the folks here as well as the police, the thousands of police here. there was just someone holding a sign saying prosperity cures poverty. this has been the main area
for the protest so far down here in this square. this brought to you by the q arena seen as security risk. now they are truly doing first amendment stuff. if you will look behind me pan your way and look in here. look at the number of law enforcement here standing guard over there, greta, on horseback. of course, the bike patrols that have been so successful have been out here. now, to date the law enforcement has arrested a total of 23 people. none today and as you see, these officers are doing an incredible job of keeping the city peaceful. now when we give you a little bit of perspective which is what we want to do, greta, you look and see a small group of protesters at any point did we see any assemblies other than that be with that we brought to you yesterday. just testament to the critical condition he haddable job chief calvin
woods has con his or her by spherd. >> after the allayen officer a jimmy sweating profusely. he powstled the cold gatorade out of his pants pocket and gave it to jimmy. it's unbelievable. that's what's going on in the public scare. >> he want want to at this point pay part by the police making it tea hats off to the police and law enforcement here. all right. donald trump. well, is has led an extraordinary life. but tonight may be the biggest night of his entire life. short time from right now he will officially accept the 2016 g.o.p. presidential nomination. joining me in the sky box, former texas governor rick perry, former navy seal the film lone survivor is based on marcus luttrell. good evening both of you. >> thank you for having us. >> a special thanks as always to a navy seal. thank you very much for your service. everyone is so proud to meet one. fun to meet you. >> yes, ma'am.
>> big night here. big speech for donald trump. >> it will be. i think we are going to hear strong message on the military building up on our economy on keeping america safe with border. that's the three messages i expect to hear from him. this is exciting. this has been an exciting convention. >> marcus, what do you think? >> exactly what he said. this is my first time. >> it's your first time here? >> it is. >> guest of governor perry. wouldn't let me in without him. i came in monday and lucky enough to stay the entire week and experience the whole thing. the electricity and vibe over the week has felony and grown and grown so the culmination tonight should be epic. >> when you talk to some of your colleagues that have searched in the military, what do they think about this race this year? >> well, behind closed doors, openly we keep our mouth shut like we are supposed to. >> behind closed doors?
>> behind closed doors it's interesting. and because of the dynamic how shift of the last eight years. we're really interested in seeing how the next shift administration. >> let me -- >> -- governor, you were in the army so help me. >> you know me, i will be a little bit more blunt about this because i talk to a lot of these kids. i was the commander and chief for 14 years of texas military forces. we deployed them multiple times. not only in the state but then obviously the federal government did, do. i visited with them in iraq and afghanistan. these are fabulous young men and women. and over the last eight years i will tell you there has been some substantial concern, not only by the degradation of their ability to have the resources that they need, but there is beginning to be a trust factor. when we see what happened in benghazi. when we see the secretary of
state with emails. listen, his brother is a navy seal as well morgan. morgan and i had a conversation he said listen, i left one paper on my desk that said secret when i was in gentleman jabuti. he said they almost kicked me out of the team when i walked away from my desk and left that one piece of paper on there. and you have got a secretary of state who we don't know how much classified information and we don't know where it went, so, that, along with are they going to be there for me? if i'm halfway around the world and i get in a sling, is the government going to be there to help me? are they going to do everything they can to bring me home? i will tell you, with what happened in beangz, there benghazi. >> the other concern i would expect the military -- is the v.a. i mean, it is, i think, every american feels ashamed when we read that some vet can't get medical care.
and i realize, you know, how complicated it is and the severity of the injuries. one of those candidates better have a good plan to clean that up for the american voter. you agree. >> yes, ma'am. when i joined the military, i had no thoughts of when i got out, i didn't care about my medical treatment or anything like that. buns u. once you get out, especially if you are damaged and that's the only place we can go, the healthcare needs to be up to par. and it's not. i mean, you have got guys, the same guys that came out that got spit on are now dying in the streets. i don't know how that gets overlooked. >> well, can i tell you that a lot of americans didn't serve. i'm not hurt but i get ashamed every time i hear that vets aren't getting the care and we need to. >> it will change when there is the will at the white house. >> miss greta, it doesn't have to be good health. just some kind of healthcare. guys aren't going to argue about it or complain about it even if its abysmal just give them some. >> it needs to be good it needs to be as good as we have got in this country for the boys and girls that
serve this country. >> i'm speechless on the topic we have got to serve y'all. nice to see you. >> "on the record" is back in cleveland next as we kick off prime time in the number one network in all of cable. straight ahead, a close personal friend of the trump family. we're back in moments. on every purchase, everywhere. like on that new laptop. quicksilver keeps things simple, gary. and smart, like you! and i like that. i guess i am pretty smart. don't let that go to your head, gary. what's in your wallet? if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, isn't it time to let the real you shine through? introducing otezla (apremilast). otezla is not an injection or a cream.

eternal god, we invite your spirit to come in to this room and guide our actions tonight. our faith traditions are united in recognition that you are the creator of all that is. you move on a scale and in ways that we can scarcely comprehend, but your grace and love reach through space and time to claim us, guide us, and make us your own. we are not here tonight to ask to you bless what we have designed. we are here to ask you to transform us, to make us better, make us courageous. make us tireless in seeking a more just nation for all who live in this land. we are united in our discontent, for we know that the world can be made better. we know that it's not right

>> and the colors just retired and now get ready for a big night for the final night of the republican convention with donald trump accepting the nomination live as "on the record" kicks off prime time and number one network in all of cable so let's get back to lynn patton, a close personal friend of the trump family. but, first, here is eric trump with his passionate speech last night. >> please welcome. >> to the unemployed voter sitting at home watching me right now, wondering how you are going to make your next mortgage payment or rent payment, my father is running for you. to the laborer watching me right now forced out of a job by undocumented workers, illegal immigrants, my father is running for you. the single mothers, tore families with special needs children or middle class families that can no longer afford medical benefits sufficient to cover every day needs my father is running for you. >> lynn, you know eric trump very well. when you watch that what do you think? >> it literally gives me chills. he did it so well last
night. he killed it i could not be more proud. >> is that unusual for eric? tell me how long you have known him. >> i have been fortunate enough to know him for seven years now. i honestly feel like is he a brother i never had. that goes for his wife laura, too. >> what do you for them. >> i'm eric's assistant and i work for his charity as the vice president. and i also work for the trump family. we are all working together for a very long time and best job i have ever had. >> what's the charity? what do they do. >> eric trump foundation raises money for saint jude's research hospital. eric founded it when he was 22 years old at a time when most kids his age are more interested in social media than social responsibility. and he chose to found this charity and in the last 10 years he has donated and pledged over $30 million to saint jude's. >> let me turn to his father as the candidate. you know donald trump, right? >> yes. >> donald, i mean the women vote is a big vote, over 50%
of the vote. whoever wins has to get that big chunk of it secretary clinton is clobbering donald trump in the women vote. why do you think he doesn't have a high number in the women vote? >> speaking as a woman myself and a minority myself, i think it's actually kind of shocking because quite frankly mr. trump was one of the first people to hire a woman construction chair back in the '80s and '70s when it wasn't popular to do. it wasn't a quota a company had to fill. he has done a lot for women. he has hired more women and minorities than any other company i have ever worked. it does surprise me. i think that people who vote for mr. trump are not people who follow the status quo and maybe the people that have voting for hillary need to really think about that. >> the first time you and i met was sometime after you wrote something response spontaneously wrote in defense of donald trump. why did you write that? >> you know, it's funny, because i get that question a lot and the first thing
that comes to my mind is how could i not write it? my parents have always taught me to speak up when i see something wrong or injustice and that's what i did. i made that video or wrote that letter so to speak because i knew -- i want to do dispel a dialogue that i knew to be false. and i could no longer stand idolly by and let that happen. >> it's exciting night for you too. >> yes. i cannot wait to see my boss accept the nomination. >> do you think is he nervous before this speech? >> no. >> no? >> i think it's probably the greatest speech of his life and the biggest speech of his life. but mr. trump is calm, cool, and collected at all times. this is a great night. no nerves. just all celebration. >> all right, lynn. well, this is going to be exciting night whether you are republican or not exciting night. >> that's right. >> thank you for joining us. >> thanks so much for being here. it's an honor. >> final night of the 2016 republican convention. tonight donald trump takes

tonight donald trump is speaking. many here are anticipating ivanka trump. here he was last night with my friend sean hannity. >> 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 intimate settings. he is a very private person in that regard. so, for me, it's much easier for me to express all of the amazing things about him as a person, as a father is he probably more reserved in expressing those things himself. >> the "on the record" political panel is here from the "boston globe" tracy january and real clear politics tracy huey burns. tracy, first, we were just watching a video during the break of all the women executives and ivanka right there speaking tonight. i guess they are really focusing on that women's
vote. >> they need to. ivanka is his best ambassador. smart, successful. >> independent woman. she is the best way to reach out to women. people have very strong opinions about him. they either love him or they don't she has already helped him in a sense that because of her is he -- than many republicans. he talks about the women's health issues that they promote and not just focusing on abortion. >> caitlin, sort of interesting, you listen to these female executives you see ivanka is quite impressive young woman. the truth is that most women across the country tonight are probably not watching the republican national convention. they are putting food on the table and they may not have made up their mind. how does he communicate this message to help women and be there for women? how does he do that before november? >> i think he needs to get ivanka out on the campaign trail more. it's interesting because ivanka is playing a role that's traditionally reserved for the candidate's
spouse. she has been introducing him tonight when the wives usually introduce the nominee. she also plays a really key role as advisor. she has proven to her father that she is a -- has a political mind. of course, her husband, curbner is also a key advisor to donald trump. ivanka has pushed for things and trump has lirched. for example, she played a key role in calling for corey lewandowski, the former campaign manager's firing. i expect to see her out on the campaign trail more as she alluded to softening her father's image. >> are we going to see donald as donald tonight or are we going to see donald as campaign advisors have suggested he be? >> it's always a surprise. we don't know. i think we will get a little bit of both. >> do you expect to hear anything about ted cruz snubbing him last night? can he resist saying something? >> i don't think he can they will try to reign him in but i don't think can he. >> do you think they will
reign him in on that? >> is he unpredictable. we have seen him venture off script before. the campaign wants to union phi the -- unify the party. it's been a long week for this campaign. they have also see ted cruz behavior as something as a rallying effect from delegates for trump. i wouldn't be surprised if he tries to capitalize that. >> can he get ohio being here? >> can he get ohio being here? >> yeah. he has got to win ohio and kasich isn't here. what's he going to do for them? >> i think being here does help him a lot. ohioans are kasich guys. >> where is kasich? >> he needs to form that relationship with kasich. >> is it too late? isn't kasich made his point? >> by not being vice president? yeah. >> not being vice president but not showing up to wave to the crowd. >> he has gotten a lot of criticism for that kasich is making a point that we have two very different visions. he wants to see more from donald trump. kasich has a really important network here in
ohio that trump would definitely benefit from. the state party is also really trying to make up for the ground game. >> i'm looking forward to seeing ivanka. she will be out here soon. anyway, tracy, caitlin, thank you both very much. >> thank you. >> all right, everybody. get ready for a big night with trump "on the record" kicking off prime time right here on the fox news channel. also ahead, two more convention speakers appear right here before hitting the convention floor. but, first, listen and watch as the republican delegates dance to this great music out on the floor ♪ ♪ i love you every day, girl ♪ you're always on my mind ♪ ♪ hold me ♪ love me ♪

your waist. this is a level of desperation the left has. if you are a secret nazi a closet nazi, then you want to wave a different way. i mean the whole thing is -- >> lifezette you put a bunch of waving up there. >> yeah. there is lots of different waves. >> now to the business at hand, there is secretary clinton's wave. >> oh, look, the nazi salute. so ridiculous. so, greta, when you wave, always down here. >> anyway, moving right along. tonight, donald trump, what does he have to do? >> i think he wants to reassure the country. is he going to speak directly to the nation about what his plans are for the country, foreign policy immigration and trade. he has to introduce himself all over again. when you walk out on the stage different from anything else. he has done massive rallies. but this is now his moment to shine and he has got to reassure the country that he already has the supporters. now he has to build out the supporters. >> how does he get -- got
some republicans who aren't inside the tent. you got the independents, and you have got the undecideds, a big chunk of the women vote and african-american vote. >> yeah. he has to make inroads in all of those. i think what the theme that was being built this week was here's the status quo. and it's not looking pretty. whether it's on the wrong direction-right direction of the country. whether it's on g.d.p., how we are viewed around the world now. our very chaotic foreign policy. we are not going in the god direction. if you like the status quo, then hillary is definitely your choice. he is going to say it's time for america to get back on track, i'm going to do it. i'm going to have incredible people working with me and i'm going to fight for you every day. people want washington to work for them. he has got to reassure them on that front. is he going to work tirelessly for all those people left behind. as hillary clinton said a lot of people have been left behind. >> fascinating to watch. outsider has been a big point. >> exactly. >> anyway, laura, thank you very much.
>> great to see you, greta. >> huge excitement on the convention floor and high above the balloons are ready to drop. tonight is the night. everyone millions more are waiting for donald trump to officially accept the 2016 republican nomination for president. co-host of america's newsroom bill hemmer is live in the middle of the party. right now, jerry falwell jr. is speaking. bill, what are the delegates are speaking out there on the floor. >> joy is jumping. ready for donald trump in a way they have been waiting all week long. there is energy down here. a lot of excitement. picked off a few more songs and these delegates are in to it. i just ran into newt gingrich a moment ago. i said what does he need to do tonight? he said three things. tell me how are. tell me why you want to be president and what you will do to president and then stick to script. that last thing will be very interesting, greta. go off pront ter tonight and see whether or not that will be the case. swing over here real quick. what is your name?
>> angela. >> angela, i have seen he you down here every night now. >> yes. >> but tonight is the night. >> that is true. >> what do you expect? >> i expect lights, cameras, and action. it's been a lot of fun here. i'm expecting an amazing speech from donald j. trump. and i'm excited to be here. >> enjoy the night, okay? >> i shall. absolutely. thank you so much. >> you got it greta, we were over in the texas delegates earlier today. can you imagine over the past 24 hours the news about ted cruz. i mean, there is a lot going on over there in texas tonight. talked with omarosa a short time ago. she was in the original apprentice with donald trump many years ago. and if you think about this, greta, donald trump is on center stage tonight? a show about a different kind of apprentice that will be seen in a whole new light. asked omarosa how she feels.
she says i love my boss and i might cry. see whether or not that happens. see you back upstairs. >> bill, thanks. stage, donald donald trump's v.. introducing himself to the american people. mike pence telling why donald trump should be the next president of the united states. >> our leaders need to be stronger. under donald trump our deals will be smarter, our soldiers will have what they need and our veterans will have what they earned. we will secure our borders, protected our nation, and all this we will be more serious and when we do, this nation will start winning again. >> former 2016 g.o.p. presidential candidate donald trump supporter dr. ben carson goes "on the record." good evening, sir. >> hi, greta. >> what do you want the american people to know about donald trump? >> that he is a very smart man. you don't go from having a million-dollar loan to becoming a billionaire in new york city without being very smart. but, also, he thinks deeply.
i have had a chance to talk to him about a lot of the issues that are affecting our country and discussing the real solutions. and he gasps things quickly. he cares about people. and this is, i think, what's going to shock a lot of people. he is going to be doing some outreaching to areas of our country where we, as republicans, normally don't reach. >> you know, that's what i have sort of been waiting for. what's happened historically is republicans don't go to those areas and that's where i began my career as a lawyer. people are hurting in those areas. >> absolutely. >> democrats make a drive by every four years and wave. it really is sort of the huge forgotten element and, you know, they're important and also, you know, they want opportunity. >> i think they go to the democrats because they feel they don't have any place to go. i think this -- a trump administration is going to show them that there is a different way. and a way out of dependency.
>> how do they know it's not just another empty promise? that's the problem, people promise, promise, promise. >> you have to kind of look at a person's record. you look at hillary clinton's record of accomplishment. you look at donald trump's record of accomplishment. i think that would tell you a lot. you also have to look at the people who will be around him, who will be advising him and helping him. >> and so, you excited tonight for him? >> i am very excited for him. i think it's going to be a dynamite speech. >> ivanka will be speaking. do you know ivanka? >> i have met her. you know, all of the trump children are absolutely delightful people. and i think that speaks volumes about the man. anybody who can raise children, particularly in the environment they came up in which i think is a disadvantaged environment because i know a lot of people very rich and their kids are so spoiled and i think it's a disadvantage. i really do. >> governor pence, is he a good addition to the ticket? >> he is terrific in all
aspects. >> fascinating night tonight. >> absolutely. >> secretary clinton makes her v.p. choice. dr. ben carson always great to see you. >> you too. candy says to tell you hi. >> tell her i said hi. see you tomorrow evening 7:00 p.m. eastern. "on the record" has been kicking off prime time all week. doing the same sunday for the democrats live from philly. up next, bill o'reilly the number one in cable news. right here in cleveland. the big speech from donald trump is coming up.
has been a struggle. i considered all my options with my doctor, who recommended once-daily toujeo®. now i'm on the path to better blood sugar control. toujeo® is a long-acting insulin from the makers of lantus®. it releases slowly, providing consistent insulin levels for a full 24 hours, proven full 24-hour blood sugar control, and significant a1c reduction. and along with toujeo®, i'm eating better and moving more. toujeo® is a long-acting, man-made insulin used to control high blood sugar in adults with diabetes. it contains 3 times as much insulin in 1 milliliter as standard insulin. don't use toujeo® to treat diabetic ketoacidosis, during episodes of low blood sugar, or if you're allergic to insulin. allergic reaction may occur and may be life threatening. don't reuse needles or share insulin pens, even if the needle has been changed.
the most common side effect is low blood sugar, which can be serious and life threatening. it may cause shaking, sweating, fast heartbeat, and blurred vision. check your blood sugar levels daily while using toujeo®. injection site reactions may occur. don't change your dose or type of insulin without talking to your doctor. tell your doctor if you take other medicines and about all your medical conditions. insulins, including toujeo®, in combination with tzds (thiazolidinediones) may cause serious side effects like heart failure that can lead to death, even if you've never had heart failure before. don't dilute or mix toujeo® with other insulins or solutions as it may not work as intended and you may lose blood sugar control, which could be serious. toujeo® helps me stay on track with my blood sugar. ask your doctor about toujeo®. when heartburn comes creeping up on you.
