settle for more. when i put the book down i walked away thinking she was a far more interesting character than either of the stories credited her to be. it will make a great christmas gift. on sale at amazon tomorrow. tonight. >> my administration will be focussed on three important words, jobs, jobs, jobs. >> president-elect donald trump means business when it comes to fixing america's economy. newt gingrich is here with reaction. >> i'm here to help you folks do well. >> then the president-elect meets with the tech industry leaders to talk jobs and innovation. we have people weigh in. >> we're going to cut your taxes and have strong borders and the wall. and president-elect trump makes promises to you the
american people. so how does he plan on keeping them? trump's new senior adviser on policy is here. plus actor kevin sorbo and his wife here to talk about a brand new movie that i'm the executive producer of. we'll announce it tonight. >> we can literally cover each country, each section of the world and get that message out. >> that's awesome. thank you. >> "hannity" starts right here, right now. welcome to "hannity." donald trump is working hard to fix the american economy. that's tonight's opening monologue. >> president-elect trump won't take the oath of office until january 20th. that's not stopping him from trying to clean up the economic mess that president obama is leaving behind. earl yes today the president-elect met with tech industry leaders to discuss job creation and innovation, and before the round table discussion the ceo of ibm who
attended the meeting announced that her company is now going to create 25,000 new jobs right here in america and they will invest over a billion dollars over the next four years. president-elect trump also promised you the american people that he's going to focus on job growth and that's what he's trying to do right now. last week trump announced that japan's soft bank will invest $50,000 into america's economy. that will create 50,000 new jobs and last month trump cut a deal with the manufacturer carrier to save over 1,000 jobs the company was planning to ship to mexico. all of this a positive great start, but the truth is the president-elect has a lot of work cut out for him. president obama's policies, i've been telling you, a complete disaster. here's where donald trump is starting. the lowest labor participation rate since the 1970s. 95 million of your fellow
americans in the labor force, the worse recovery since the 40s. the lowest home ownership in america in 51 years. 13 million more americans are on food stamps in the last eight years. 43 million americans living in poverty. 8 million more than eight years ago. one in five american families without one person in the labor force. one in six american men, 18 to 34 either in jail incarcerated or living in mommy and daddy's basement because they don't have a job. by the time he leaves office, the president will have accumulated more debt than 43 other presidents before him combined. there are clear reasons by president obama failed. what did he do? he tried to use big government statism to create job which has never worked. members failed stimulus plan he was going to create shovel ready jobs. they never materialized and it cost you the american taxpayers
nearly a trillion dollars. now, here's why it failed and we need to learn these lessons. all those billions of dollars, they were filtered through that big bloated government bureaucracy in washington, and remember, then it went to their friends and companies like solindra. the results have been pathetic and all we have to show for it is doubling the national debt and stealing from our kids.obam. so the question we've got to ask tonight before donald trump becomes president, what will work? how do we create success for what i call the election, the forgotten man or woman election? now, president-elect trump's plans, it's a stark contrast to president obama's. he's going to take the opposite approach. he will implement policies that historically have worked. here's the president-elect's economic plan. he wants to create jobs in america. how? lower taxes. reform the tax code. seven brackets to three.
a 15% corporate tax rate. a 10% repatriation rate for the trillions of dollars that multinational corporations have parked abroad in banks. he's going to huge government regulation. he wants to renegotiate trade deals. energy independence. so important for national security and job creation. repealing and replacing obama care. that should end up like a tax cut for most americans and a goal of 4% gdp growth. obama did not have one year of 3% gdp growth. the only president in history never to have 3% of gdp. if president-elect trump follows through on that agenda, it could create one of the biggest economic boons the country has ever seen and history proves. it would be very similar to what john f kennedy and ronald reagan did. they understood that to have real economic growth you need to unleash the potential of the free market. free market capitalism. go back to jfk.
he set in motion a plan to cut the top marginal tax rate from 91%. he dropped it to 77%. during his short time as president, 3.8 million jobs were created. an average of 4.4% gdp growth. ronald reagan, he took the concept further. he shredded the top marginal rate lowering over the course of his presidency from 70% to 28%. as a result, reagan in eight years created 20 million new jobs after the '82 recession ended. gpd growth average 3.5%. government revenues nearly doubled. they spiked by 65%. we saw at the end of his presidency the longest period of peacetime economic growth. these lessons are so important. president-elect trump has one major advantage over jfk and ronald reagan. we know we can become energy
independent. we have massive natural gas shale oil reserves and not only will tapping into those resources create millions of jobs here at home, but it will also create a whole new foreign policy dynamic in the middle east. we won't be dependent on countries that hate our guts. and if we export some of the resources to western europe, they won't be dependant to russia and putin for their needs. i only worry about the infrastructure plan. he's talking about $1 trillion in spending. we have to fix the crumbling roads and bridges. that's obvious. but how are we going to pay for it? how do we plan in pay as we go? and the money can't be spent. we have to get it out of the hands of congressmen and senators, 535 greedy bureaucrats in washington that will misappropriate that money. finally there has to be an outside commission, some place that oversees how this one
trillion dollars is spent. there needs to be accountability. joining us with reaction, he has a new e book out about the election of donald trump. he gave a speech on trumpism today at the heritage foundation, former speaker of the house, newt gingrich. >> it's fun to be up here. >> the reason i'm laying this out, jfk worked. reagan worked. and the reason i want you here is what you balanced the budget. nobody thought it was possible at the time. >> and we created tremendous economic growth. had the biggest capital gains tax cut in history. had the biggest improvement in children living in poverty in history because if you really get the economy moving, it really helps across the board. i'm very optimistic, because i'm watching president-elect trump assemble a cabinet that is amazing. these are all winners. these are all successful people. i think it may have the fewest
lawyers of any cabinet in history. >> and the most generals? >> the most generals, and the most successful business people. it goes back to sort offiz eisenhower's cabinet in the 50s. when this team arrives in washington and they collide with the realities of washington, this is going to be a meeting of winners. the team of rivals, the story of oh lincoln, this is team of win winners. you have a four star general john kelly heading up homeland security. a three star general flynn at national security, and you also have really successful piz people and the longest serving governor in the history of texas for the energy -- >> he picked the perfect person. >> rick is going to drive energy in america.
>> the way "the washington post" describes it, she described the selections as a bunch of ignorant, billionaires and a few generals. is there something wrong with becoming a successful billionaire like bill gates? >> if you're on the left, there is. on the left you want a cabinet of losers. you feel sorry for them. the whole concept of having a super bowl where you have the winning team of the whole season -- >> not everybody gets a trophy. >> if the left had their way, everybody would get a ring. did you suit up? did you care? >> right. maybe we'll mail her crayons. >> jennifer reuben, i was quoting to leave the things -- i'm -- the article on intellectual yet idiots. google it. and his term of idiot fits her
perfect. jennifer reuben is the perfect example of what he's writing about which is a person who can write well and sounds like they know something but doesn't know anything. >> i call them overeducated idiots. >> yeah. this woman sits at the post. >> national review, they have their share of them, wall street journal. >> they do. they sit around and render judgment. i learned about this from the guy who wrote "black hawk down". he wrote a book on the philadelphia eagles. he said what he learn second down if you're a pro football player, and you got some 50-year-old guy up there who can't run 20 yards and he's describing his judgment of your touchdown pass, you just get angry at the idea of who does he think he is, and that's what she was thinking. here's a person, jennifer reuben, and i am picking on her directly, because she's a pseudo
conservative --? you could add bill crystal of any of them. >> the idea she describes a cabinet with a world class pediatric surgeon, a remarkably successful secretary of treasury, a remarkably successful secretary of commerce, the longest serving governor in the history of texas. rick perry in a good week accomplished more than the she has in history. now the head of the largest corporation in the world. think about it from the left. he negotiated successfully. in the spirit of clinton and kerry, how can you have somebody who is successful? >> you think quickly, we have a break and then i want you to describe trumpism. are you confident that everything that i outlined in my opening monologue will happen? will he get that done? >> i think he probably won't. i think the crisis will come in 90 days when it finally hitting him that washington is that hostile, that difficult, that
entrenched, and the swamp ain't going to go away easily. at that moment i'm hoping he brings the team of winners together and they collectively decide we're going to win again and then it'll start rolling. >> then things will move. all right. we'll take a break. what is trumpism? newt gingrich describes it when we come back. yesterday he gave a speech on his principles. we'll get to that and later tonight. >> my administration will be focussed on three very important words words. jobs, jobs, jobs. >> donald trump, he's promised you the american people he will create jobs, especially those of you in poverty on food stamps. my big announcement, i am the executive producer of movie to come out early next year. straight ahead.

head quarters in new york. it's just after 8:00 in the morning in aleppo syria and rebels say a cease fire deal is back on. the deal will also include evacuation of rebel fighters. a planned evacuation broke down early wednesday and hos the tillties resumed. >> yahoo found another breach of security that happened in 2013 and enabled a hacker to compromise more than 1 million hacker accounts. it affected at least 500 million users. asian stock markets falling. they're reacting to the quarter point interest rate by the fed.
now back to "hannity." >> trumpism is a bold and profoundly different way of thinking. the needs codification and development through action. the combination of inertia and the relentless hos the tillty of the left which challenge the survival of trumpism. trumpism, i think, is much more than just motion. much more than just being active. trumpism is ultimately and at the heart an appeal to the american people. former speaker of the house delivering a speech at the heritage foundation about a movement he's calling trumpism. he joins us for many. what is trumpism? >> look, trumpism is the set of values and attitudes and practices that donald trump has brought to american government and politics. you can get pieces of it by reading two of his books, the
art of the deal and the art of the comeback. you get pieces of it by looking at his campaign and by looking at his speeches. i'm going to give you one example. i tell people this is a water shed moment if we make it work. we have a trump rally on the stock market. now turn it into a trump reality in the real economy. one example we were talking about earlier, the woman skating rink, central park. doesn't produce ice. it's embarrassing. the skating rink with no ice is stupid. >> and this went on for years. >> six years. six years the city of new york bureaucracy tries to fix the stating rink. trump gets irritated because he can see it from his apartment. he publicly taunts the mayor. he says i'm going to give you the skating rink. you have 3 million and six months. they wasted 13 million for six years. in the art of the deal he says, now that i was in charge, i
realized i didn't know anything. this is very trump. he says, so i asked myself who knows about fixing skating rinks and i think canadians. >> he's right. >> so i found the best canadian skating rink. first of all, this is what leads him to jim mattis and rick perry. he's going to look for the best to come in. it's a piece of what trumpism is as opposed to liberalism which would look like a right token s surrogate. they come in. six years, $13 million failure. two and a half months, 3 million success. here's my point. >> under budget, actually. >> under budget. and three months ahead of schedule. here's why we have to abolish the congressional budget office. if you said we want you to score fixing the woman's skating rink,
there is no possibility they would score it at a trump level. >> that's a good point. >> you say what's it going to take to build a wall. what's it going to take to get man back on the oh moon? the bureaucracy or donald trump? what trumpism is the cutting through the baloney, eliminating the red tape, being frugal and practical. >> now can answer the question i raised in my monologue. you have a trillion dollar infrastructure project. if you run that through washington d.c., you lose $0.50 on the dollar. >> don't think of a trillion dollar bill. think of a trillion dollar effect. >> help me out. >> okay. we set up a public private partnership and folks run in and say i'm going to put up half the money. federal apt fell. we say to the canadians let's do
half boarder deals. we cut through the red tape. if you go out and talk to governor levin and what he did in utah for the winter olympics and talk about pete wilson, wa he did after the north ridge earthquake. you talk to schwarzenegger after the gasoline truck blew up on the bridge. you talk to mitch daniel, what he did when he leased the interstate, got the cash and built in ohio outside the federal regulations and john kasich found federal money. five governors, all of whom get stuff at 40% of the cost ahead of schedule. and now you take those rules. i just did a thing today with phillip henry who is -- who's probably the best thinker on regulatory reform in the country. if we took federal state and local regulars, put them into one office and did them
concurrently, you probably saved two-thirds of the time it currently takes to build something. >> look, this is going to be your role. you do have a role in this administration. that's what you -- >> i have a role as a citizen in the country. >> that's what i mean. >> it's in the country. it's it's the legislators, 34 governors. >> but you will be that special adviser that hopefully brings the ideas in. >> i hope so. that's why i come to your show. the most efficient way to give advice is on your show. >> i'll take it. >> when we come night. this is next. my administration will be focussed on three very important woshds. jobs, jobs, jobs. president-elect, donald trump vowing he had to say merry christmas, vowing he'll get
americans back to work. we'll get reaction to trump's meeting with the tech leaders earlier today. also later tonight. >> we're going to work on taxes. we're going to work on obama care. we're going to work on things and he's going to lead the way. thank you. we're going to work on the wall, paul. during his thank you tour rally in wisconsin the president-elect said he was looking forward to working with the speaker of the house, paul ryan to fulfill his campaign promises. ryan kind of got booed. later we'll speak with steve miller, his senior adviser for policy. and we'll talk about the movie i'm an executive producer of. a real movie. as a control enthusiast,
i'm all-business when i travel... even when i travel... for leisure. so i go national, where i can choose any available upgrade in the aisle - without starting any conversations- -or paying any upcharges. what can i say? control suits me. go national. go like a pro. my administration will be focussed on three very important words. jobs, jobs, jobs. whether it's building cars,
producing steel, or curing disease, we want the next generation of innovation and production to happen right here in america and right here in wisconsin. right? >> that was president-elect donald trump at last night's thank you rally in wisconsin. promising to focus on and help save american jobs. so our business leaders, willing to invest more in their companies and their workers because of donald trump's victory in joining us with reaction, the trump transition team, anthony scaramucci, austan goolsbee is here. you left early, but i just did a comparison at the start of the show today. what kennedy did, what reagan did, both worked. what obama did was the opposite. it didn't work. so, anthony, if he does what he plans on doing, corporate tax rate 15%. 10 % repatriation rate. seven brackets to three.
repeal obama care, emergency independence. what kind of growth? >> and a roll back in regulations. >> that's energy independence. >> that's a big component. you can triple the obama jobs numbers but you've seen it reflected in the stock market. you've already got the move. today we had a tech summit up there. they were talking about infrastructure spending not only in technology and to help on cyber security but also how are we going to block sooisis from using the internet as an instrument. that will lead to economic growth as well. >> why am i nervous about a trillion dollar boondoggle infrastructure spending. >> wait for the plan. you could have the repatriation treaty, the money come back into the united states and be the backstop collateral for the bonds. it never hits the the balance sheet of the united states and now the bond --
>> it pays for itself as we go? >> as we go. >> what about taking it out of the hands of the congressmen and senators? >> if we do it that way, it's not reck situation from the congress. we're bringing it back to the united states. you can put in an infrastructure czar and now you have a shovel ready position. >> shovel ready. >> shovel ready. that's something you've never heard of. that's why i said that. >> you're going to shovel ready somebody. >> i said that for you. it's christmas. >> i wanted to give you an early christmas gift. >> even you, austan, as liberal as you are, we have energy -- it's the life blood of our economy. we have more energy than educational background ever possibly use in 2 00 years when you include shale oil and natural gas and clean coal, and we still import a million barrels of oil from saudi arabia
a day. so my question is, obama supported the bureaucracy, the regulation to prevent energy independence. why would you be against that? won't that create millions of high paying jobs? >> i'm mr. right down the middle. >> it could help the economy, yes, if done right and in a way that protects our drinking water. we've talked about this before. >> i want dirty air and dirty water because i'm a conservative. >> you've said that many times, but the thing with oil, with shale, when the price is low, people do in the develop the resources. so the main thing that's happening with the low utilization has been from the price of oil has been low. >> which the saudis and opec and that cartel have tried to push american fracking companies out of business. true or false, anthony? >> i think there's some truth to that, yes, and i think austan
would agree. >> true or false? >> we 'agree on many things. >> we agree on a lot of stuff, particularly the infrastructure. his partner has a good plan for infrastructure. it could be a bipartisan provided that we take it right to the people and get a return on capital and run it the way you'd run a business investment. >> wasn't it a mistake for obama to allow congress to put their hand in the till? they all agreed i'll support your project, you support mine. >> austan is going to disagree, but you didn't see the impact in the gdp, so we agreed that was the case. >> what does it mean he was the first president, first president in the history of the country, he accumulated more debt than 43 people before him but that never reached 3% gdp in a year. >> it means we had low inflation and low population growth is what it means.
>> so poor barack obama. >> 43 presidents have a better track record than him and it's not his fault? >> they don't have a better track record. >> better gdp. >> we've added 15 million jobs. do you think donald trump is going to beat that job? >> yeah, actually, i do. why do you always split off the years? when i look at the reagan years, we go from 1980 to 198. the obama years are 2008 to 2016. >> no. you just desperately want to put that stinking mess of a financial crisis that happened before he ever got there. you want to put that on his ledger. and you know you can't do that. >> okay. i'll only start the when things were a little bit better. we'll only count the good years. >> what about the last two years? >> okay. we've added almost 5 million jobs. >> the only president that hasn't had a 3% gdp print in his
history. what about the last five years? >> here's the problem. you factor in jobs and you give out phony numbers, austan that mislead people. you don't add the number of people that are out of the labor force that are looking for work that can't find work in the long term. why do you forget them? >> i do add that. i do. >> you don't. >> i have said that's the weakest part of the labor force. that has improved in the last two years. >> merry christmas, and austan you owe my dinner ft. >> i do. >> i'm going to order the most expensive thing on the menu. coming up next here on "hannity." >> he's like a fine wine. every day goes by, i get to appreciate his genius more and more. president-elect trump praising speaker paul ryan last
night, vowing to work with him to make america great again. how can they fulfill trump's campaign promises? we'll speak with trump's senior adviser for policy, stiever miller, coming up next. my big project, my movie executive producing debut, kevin sam sorbo are here to talk about our faith based film called "let there be light". it's coming up next. [vo] quickbooks introduces jeanette.
and her new business: i do, to go. jeanette was excellent at marrying people. but had trouble getting paid. not a good time, jeanette. even worse. now i'm uncomfortable. but here's the good news, jeanette got quickbooks. send that invoice, jeanette. looks like they viewed it. and, ta-da! paid twice as fast. oh, she's an efficient officiant.
was snap a photo of the damage and voila! voila! (sigh) i wish my insurance company had that... wait! hold it... hold it boys... there's supposed to be three of you... where's your brother? where's your brother? hey, where's charlie? charlie?! you can leave worry behind when liberty stands with you. liberty stands with you™ liberty mutual insurance speak speaker paul ryan, i have really come to -- oh oh, no, i've come to appreciate him. speaker, paul ryan. where is speaker? where is he? he has been -- he's been terrific. and you know, honestly, he's like a fine wine. every day go by, i get to appreciate his genius more and more. now, if he ever goes against me, i'm not going to say that.
okay? he's a great guy, and we have some amazing things in store. and we're going to work on taxes. we're going to work on obama care. we're going to work on things and he's going to lead the way, so thank you. we're going to work on the wall, paul. >> all right. that was president-elect trump last night in wisconsin. praising the speaker of the house, paul ryan who got a few boos explaining how they'll put america first. joining us the is senior adviser to senior elect for policy. that's an important position, and you were the speech writer throughout most of the campaign, right? >> i was the speech writer and did policy for the president-elect. >> and how many days were you on the road that you barely got it on the prompter? >> mr. trump is probably the most hands on speaker that you'll ever work with. he's a man who has written, i guess, a dozen best-selling books. it's an amazing process to work with him.
he cares what every single word says. >> which i know is difficult at times. anyway, congratulation on your positions. i don't have a lot of advice for the president-elect, but what i care about is the country. i believe this is the forgotten man and woman election. what's important, i think, and one of the reasons people are so upset with washington is they make promises and don't keep them. so, to me, if you're going to be the head of policy, i want to ask you are we going to get originalists on the court? >> we're going through the cabinet process but next it's the supreme court. he has a list of 30 judges. we have it down to a few, and the names are names that people are going to love who believe the constitution should be interpreted as it was intended. >> if the democrats try tofilib happened on a supreme court,
would you suggest they use the -- >> we don't want to talk about it right now. we want to focus on getting them confirmed. >> i want to be clear. on the economy, he's going to go from seven brackets to three. 15% corporate tax rate. 10% repatriation rate for multinational corporations bringing money back. is that your policy? >> our tax plan is 7 to three with the rates you mentioned. in the course of the oh negotiation with the house and senate. >> ryan wants 20 for the corporate rate. >> right. the most important thing is we get a competitive business tax rate to bring in companies from overseas and we believe that rate is 15%. we have massive tax relief for the middle class and we repatriate profits overseas. we can use that to build infrastructure. >> could you target that money to detroit, cleveland, philly,
you know? >> what we think we can do is say we're going to bring back -- let's say it's $300 million, and we can earmark it and direct it toward infrastructure projects. >> and specifically, in other words, those people that have been hurt the most, the rust belt that got trump elected. >> exactly. >> might that be targeted to those areas first. >> infrastructure bill, you probably need it for different regions. for places that are hurt and economical economically depressed, they will be place we'll be directing -- >> i'm worried about 535 greedy politicians, senators and congressmen that will want their piece of the pie and we'll waste every $0.50 on the dollar. can it be earmarked and given outside of the budget and away from them. >> i think you identify projects of great national interest. projects that help people and will last a long time and stand
the test of time. and will help our country. >> quick, the wall gets built. >> it does, and i'm going to step back a second and say for the middle class workers of this country, we're going to secure the border, protect their jobs, fix our trade deals, restore the rule of law and get rid of the illegal obama executive orders. >> health savings accounts replace obama care? >> yes. >> education goes back to the states? >> we're going to push for school choice. we'll work with ben carson at hud. >> energy independence? >> we get three wonderful gifts the to our economy. regulatory reform, repatriation of overseas profits and energy revolution. >> last question, how many hours will trump spend on day one repealing executive orders? >> there will be a stack of illegal and unconstitutional executive actions or just dpek executive actions that hurt workers and they will be gone.
>> how many? >> it's a long list, but the important thing is when we do this, america will be safer and more prosperous, and those workers and rust belt states are going to begin to see jobs come back to their communities. >> you don't need to go through a senate hearing, do you? >> i don't. >> thank god. congratulations. >> coming up, i am an executive producer of a movie that will be out next thanksgiving. we'll give you a preview tonight. the movie is called "let there be light". tums only lasts up to 3. for longer lasting relief...in one chewable tablet try duo fusion from the makers of zantac if you're going to wish, wish big at the lexus december to remember sales event get up to $2500 customer cash on select 2016 and 2017 models for these terms. see your lexus dealer.
but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one. with it, i earn unlimited 2% cash back on all of my purchasing. and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means thousands of dollars each year going back into my business... which adds fuel to my bottom line. what's in your wallet?
volkswagen sign then drive event. welcome back to "hannity." hercules actor and his wife are teaming up for a faith based movie called "let there be light ". i'm the executive producer of this film. it's my first time into film, and here's a sneak peek. it won't come out until next thanksgiving. we want to give you a sneak peek. >> we just want to give everyone the opportunity to speak to somebody about the love of christ. i mean, they can make their own decisions and unlike isis, this is not a convert or die proposition. >> here's my question. do you have a media partner? is there anybody out there, christmas eve that's going to show this band of light going around the entire globe? is anybody covering this?
>> well, so far no sunone is covering it. >> that's going to change right now. i can do it on my network. we can do a three hour special and show this band of light as it makes it way around the globe through the different time zones. here with reaction, kevin and sam. we had to run a clip that doesn't give the story away. you are a horrible person in this movie so everybody knows. you are horrible. >> it's a compliment. i have to take that. i did my acting well then. >> you really did, and you helped write the movie. let me tell everybody the story. i don't know how it broke. it was on the bruj report. i'm happy it broke. i said to you, if you ever get a project you think, something that's contemporary and would touch people, call me. you come to new york, the two of you and dan gordan. you the tell the story. i was sold like that.
>> i came up with the idea about three weeks before, and i called dan gordan and said hey, i have this idea for a movie. would you consider writing a movie with me. he said know because he's a big time movie writer. >> he was the creator and head writer on highway to heaven. he wrote "the hurricane". good writer. i told him the idea over lunch, and he said i'm in. and two weeks later he gets a call from you and i say that's my movie. >> it's funny. it didn't take me long to agree to do this. there are so many twists and turns. i do radio and tv. but music and movies nobody cries watching my tv show except liberals. some of them cry because they're upset. they were upset on election night. >> the truth is murder to them. there's a lot of tears. >> i had eight tough years too here. cut me some slack, but there's
