tv The Real Story FOX News September 16, 2016 11:00am-12:01pm PDT
weekend. >> a fox news alert declining this afternoon. the president of the united states was in fact, morning here. at the end of an event that stretched on for nearly 90 minutes, trump saying this. >> president barack obama was born in the united states, period. now we all want to get back to making america strong and great again. thank you. >> we have live fox team coverage on the campaign trail. first, we check in with chief
political correspondent live in washington with all of the latest, following that line, the very last moment of that event. >> we thought it would be a news conference, but it was clear that it would be impossible for us to shout questions and get answers. donald trump had a little more to say, here is a little beet of that. >> hillary clinton, and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy. i finished it, i finished it, you know what i mean. >> what he means is that he makes the argument that by pounding this issue initially, he forced president obama to release his long form birth certificate which he then questioned the authenticity of
at the time. hillary clinton had never said anything to promote that issue. there was strategies, but there was one particular thing the president's upbringing, and said we should not do anything. hillary clinton said she denoticed it at the time. she preacted. before donald trump issued his statement, watch. i'm sorry, hillary clinton took him to task and said he had been sort of fostering hate and
divisiveness. it is clear the democrats will continue to handle this. the congressional black caucus members right now are holding a news conference saying that trump yoes the president an apology. and hillary clinton stepping up her attacks now on donald trump on the birther issue. jennifer griffin is now live in washington, but jennifer, what is clinton's response to all of this? >> she sieized on it yesterday when donald trump would not answer a straightforward question, and would not say that the president was born in the united states. clinton made no bones about it when she was speaking to a prominent group of black women
today saying donald trump keeping the issue alive for as long as he did, was racist. >> we know who donald is. for five years he lead the birther movement to challenge our president. >> they were waiting for him to say that hillary clinton started the birther movement in 2008 when she was running against president obama, jen griffin, how about the campaign's reaction to all of this? where do they go from here? >> clinton and her campaign balked when addressed with this.
>> i believe that donald trump is an liar. anything he said about where president obama was born was a lie. any reasonable person knew he is an american born in hawaii. >> and all of the video questions whether or not president obama was an american, attacks that morphed into questioning whether or not he was a muslim. a fact checker gave him four pon ponoceos. >> and there is a birthday bash
tonight? bill clinton? >> yes, and it will also be a fundraiser for the foundation. guests were asked to pay $200,000 as a chair of the event, and $100,000 for a co-chair. they said they would release the names of those sponsoring the event, and now it's not clear if that is the case. this could not come at a worse time for hillary clinton that is still trying to overcome an impression that they had potential conflicts of interest when she was in the state department. it has dogged her campaign for some time. >> jen griffin, thank you. for more on this, allen combs and chris plant are here. just in time to react to all of the happenings today, chris,
your take first. democrats are saying he is changing his mind three days out over this birther controversy saying now that the president was, in fact, born here. how will it play out in the election? >> oh, good god, who knows. the fact that we're talking about this is proof of the unholy alliance between the clinton campaign and the news media. hillary clinton, a couple days ago, decided to bring this up as an issue out of thin air. now there is a food fight other an eight-year-old argument brought up in the first place perhaps not by hillary herself or employees of her campaign but by her supporters. and hillary clinton spreading the rumor that he was a muslim early on. they mentioned by carl cameron that he begginned up some of th
stuff, and no this argument is irrelevant, about a president about to leave office, and honestly, where will it go in the next couple days? >> but it is an issue that both camps have to continue to face. i want to show you this, a dozen members of the congressional black caucus reacting to donald trump's statement right now, here is one of them. >> trump is nothing more than a two-bit racial arsonist. who for decades have done nothing but fan the flames of bigotry and hatred. >> he is right, look, president obama's foth, it's not hillary clinton's fault, you have people in the trump campaign, you have
rudy jewgoouiuliani and top surs saying that barack obama believes it. then he says this morning there will be some suspense, like the whole world is a reality show. >> he brought up a military veteran, a war veteran, and it was an unbelievable moment because he really captured the press's attention. we were all watching glued, and he came out and broke -- >> it was a cheap plug for his hotel? honoring our military -- >> no, the event itself, held at his hotel, and he was supposed to take the press on a tour, and he would only allow the cameras
and one of the producers say she was physically restrained. >> 58 days out from election day, the two-way match up, clinton and trump. right now clinton 46%, trump 43%. the momentum is in trump's favor. it is -- we're getting close here, chris? >> that is true, the momentum is clearly in donald trump's favor, and this is why the democrats are panning and ginning up cries for racism. we're going to transfer that over to sexism quite soon, i'm sure. and they will pull out all of the stops crying the party of slavery, cry racism at every
turn, and the only reason that rudy giuliani is talking about it is the news media asked him about it. >> is it smart for the hillary clinton campaign to stay on this birther issue when you look at this, when voters were asked how to answer this question, things in the world today are going to -- 57% say hell in a handbasket. 38% say things will be all right. people still feel like we're in a messy situation. >> she is talking about that lot more than just the birther issue. she has usable, doable ideas. the media's job is to focus on those as well. she has been forthright about that and that is what we should be talking about as well. >> what we're talking about is race, division -- >> thank you, happy friday to
you guys, thank you for coming on and discussing. a committee coming out with a blistering report on edward snowden. plus, we'll also get his take on whether or not gitmo should be closed. and given the nice today about president obama's birth, we want you -- we want to give you this fact, martin van buren, the eighth president, born in 1782, was the first president to begin his life in the independent usa. you don't let anything keep you sidelined.

the house voting to block the transfer of detainees from guantanamo. two more have returned to fighting this year alongside militant groups. so far 122 of 693 detainees transferred out of gitmo have returned to the battlefield. a former cia direct near served under bill clinton and a donald trump campaign advisor, good of you to be here, ambassador. closing gitmo, what are your thoughts on that? >> i don't think it should be closed. i think there is real danger keeping those that are suspects of terrorism in the united
states. they will call on al-qaeda or isis to destroy a jail. it is only one of the things that i think could go wrong, and having gitmo is extremely useful, especially as we struggle overtime with isis and more sophisticated and extremely clever operators in some of these terrorist groups. >> we know in the little bit of time that barack obama has left, that is one of his biggest goals. 122 of the 372 traps fered o-- transferred out. >> between a fifth and a sixth come back. president obama has what i would
call a trout policy. a catch and release. but when you catch and release trout, you have the fun of catching the trout, and then you turn it loose. and it doesn't work that way with terrorists. they don't want more terrorists. it is really a crazy policy to exert a great deal of effort in capturing these guys and then turning them loose. >> as someone who is advising donald trump, the current g.o.p. nominee, where does he stand on this? >> i have not talked to him about it, that is a good question, i'm not sure. >> do you plan to? >> i will talk with him about a number of things if he wants me to talk to him. i am available to talk with him about any matters related to national security, my field of
under taking if. >> and i want to get to the house intelligence committee. they issued a report condemned edward snowden finding he is not a whistle-blower and they're urging president obama to snub calls for a pardon. devin nunez saying in part that edward snowden is no hero, he is a traitor that willfully betrayed his colleagues and his country. he put our servicemembers and american people at risk after slights by his superiors. >> when the public has it's seat taken away at the table of government, we all bear a individual responsibility to try to right that, but this is a very controversial thing. i could have got it wrong. i could have been a crazy person, and this is why. i gave all of the documents that i had available to journalists.
>> ambassador, your thoughts? >> if you contrast snowden back in the 60s, early 70s, ellsberg took policy papers, and he did release them to the press, a famous incident, and they become public. if you go back and look at them now, they're policy papers and they don't disclose any operations, they don't disclose who is one of our spies behind enemy lines, etc. and he voluntarily came back to the united states to be prosecuted. the court made a procedural mistake when prosecuting them and he didn't have to go to prison, but he was a very principaled man in his own way. snowden, words fail me.
i think he ought to be brought back to the united states, but he ought to be put on trial before a jury of his peers. and convicted of treason that ought to be the charge. as i understand that still carried the possibility of death by hanging. that is what i would like to see happen to snowden. >> good to get your thoughts on that. thank you for being with us. >> good to be with you. >> a tale of two sevens. as the iphone 7 hits shelves, a massive recall for the samsung galaxy 7 for exploding batteries. as you know, 22 g.o.p. senators are running for reelection this year nap is the

number seven taking stage for smart phones, for samsung, they're not so lucky. a massive recall of the samsung galaxy note 7. to make things worst for samsung, the iphone 7 goes on sale today. >> indeed. now that they have officially recalled the note, samsung might be forced to kill off that version of the phone all together and move on to the galaxy note 8.
they have given no indication they will do that, but the problems are worse. there is now 92 reports of batteries overheating in the u.s., 22 reports of burns and 25 reports of property damage. one man lost his jeep because his phone battery exploded. >> that's the last thought in my head that a brand new device, something as simple as a phone will burn down my car, house, or hurt a family member. >> the f.a.a. is now telling people not to turn on or charge their samsungs while on board planes. samsung is asking owners to power them down and exchange them immediately. they say the company is working every day to earn back your trust but they need to work fast. this week alone, samsung stock is down 7%. 10% this month, that is about
$14 million in market valbillio. the iphone 7 is coming out today and it is selling like hot cakes. some versions are sold out. a few days ago, sales were 10% above the iphone six a few years ago. they expect the number to jump significantly this weekend. but samsung has a loyal following and if they can quickly fix the bug, all might be forgotten at some point. you would think it would be better now. >> that smartphone war is constant, it is aggressive, and it is really unbelievable, the fight for marketshare. >> and we dent mention lg who is huge in this and they're also benefitting from the fallout. >> a very personal decision what
phone you use. >> in a feisty press conference at the white house, john kasich cracking jokes about donald trump's admission on president obama's birthplace, watch. >> what i was really thinking is bruce springsteen will be happy because because "born in the usa" will sell more copies. and hillary clinton cracks jokes too, today. as the world knows, i was a little under the weather recently. the good news is my pneumonia finally got some republicans interested in women's health. at safelite, we know how busy life can be.

republicans, law marks, and presidents. and he was asked to weigh in about the 2016 race for the white house. wait until you see what he said about that. it was what was happening on both sides with the candidates. any fiction that would be acceptable. >> he may have a point, sandra, it has been a wild election this year. what about the birther issue that just broke a couple hours
ago with president obama and trump saying he was born here. >> he didn't want to step on the tpp message. reason again. >> born in the usa is going to sell more albums. i'm here for tpp and what is happening in the world, not talking about where someone was born. >> get out your phone and listen to it or download it. >> you might be selling more of those songs for him than anyone else. kevin clark, thanks. >> good to see you. >> donald trump attempting to put the president obama birther issue to rest today as we were just discussing. and polls show a very close race at this moment in time, and al gore may be campaigning on behalf of hillary clinton.
joining us now is a democratic national committee member and former clear of gores michigan campaign in 2012. when he got obama to release his long-form birth certificate. this is something dredged up because the democratic party, the main stream media are seeing a tightening race in the polls. if you're camp clinton, you're salivating thinking that birtherism is the topic of the day, but after trump laid out this quick message, you have to be concerned. i think it was a good day, very well done by the trump campaign. >> and he didn't just say the president was born here, he p f prefaced that statement saying hillary clinton started it with
senator barack obama when she was running against him in 2008. >> i don't think that's the case, and i think donald trump managed to keep it alive for years, and if he wanted to put it to rest, he could have last night. i, too would like to move on. we should be talking about substance. >> let's talk about mitigating circumstances. right now if you pull up a battleground state map, it shows that michigan is leaning democrat. how do you see it all turning out? >> i said from the very beginning that mitigating circumstances -- michigan is a competitive state. people say no. michigan is always competitive
and people need to know their vote matters. a lot of people forget this. elections -- the monday before the election in 2004, al gore had to decide michigan or florida. >> hillary clinton had an 11 point lead there just last month, and she is now leading but just three points. >> think about that, just three weeks ago, michigan was a state that pundants said that he didn't have a chance. he is winning four out of the last five polls in ohio. it has to be very concerning for the clinton campaign that had reason to believe the election was put to bed, it is a very tight race now.
>> and news that ford motor company will move all of their small car production to mexico. donald trump has been on this for quite some time and he reacted to this, listen. >> they make their car, they think they're going to get away with this, they fire all of the employees in the united states, when that car comes back across the born der, we'll charge them 35% tax and they'll never leave. >> donald trump saying if you want to make the cars in mexico, we'll tax you 35%. >> this is a very typical donald trump statement. the same man that produces all of his shirts, ties, and crystal in china and romania. ford motor said they would be doing small car production there. ford motor produces more vehicles in this country than
any other manufacturer. i agree with donald trump on the t.p.p., i'm opposed because we need trail deadide deals here tt the worker. let's use the facts. ford invested 10.2 billion in a legal in the last few years. >> as far as politics are concerned, does a message like this work for him. >> it is typical donald trump, and typical donald trump has been talking about giving a competitive edge to american workers. you can talk about investments in various parts of the countries, but they're going to create 2800 new jobs. and the trump campaign has been very consistent in seeing these are the type of things -- you can try to lose us in the weeds all you want, but when an iconic american manufacturer like ford is talking about, and following through with plans to go to
mexico, it doesn't bode well for the candidate of the status quo. >> why is he not producing his products here in this country then? why is he going to china and mexico? i tell you ford produces more here than any of the trump products. >> let's wrap this up here, hillary clinton is back on the campaign trail, i want to ask you she is billing this as a reset. that it was good to take a rest. is it a good move for her? >> taking a rest? >> saying it was a reset. >> i think it was time for her to get healthy, the next 54 days are critical for everyone. compare the candidates and really think about what the election means and i think voters will really realize what the future is about and who will fight for working men and women every day.

maine's senators, governor, and state legislature that wrote a letter to president obama encouraging him to keep this land in private hands and allow for the ongoing unrestricted use of outdoorsmen that use the woods on the 87500 acres, but it was purchased by the co-founder of burts bees. the president helped her find another way to create her goal. >> a national monument can be created by an act of congress or a presidential proclamation. >> the governor says he still hopes to overturn the designation, but that would take an act of congress. >> and the logs industry has big concerns here, too, right?
>> it is huge here. the north maine woods are private logging territory, and the roads that lead into and through the u monument are private logging roads. and they're-and-a-ha navigating narrow, winding, and bumpy roads. >> folks coming up there think they have, may think they have unencumbered rights, but they're going to find out their sharing those roads with trucks that can haul 200,000 pounds. that needs to be talked about and planned for. >> but there are supporters who hope the new monument will spark tourism here.
