  Hannity  FOX News  January 23, 2017 7:03pm-7:25pm PST

7:03 pm
what he said he would do. that is refreshing. earlier today, i sat down with counsel to the president, kellyanne conway to ask her about this agenda and the future and more. joining us n conway. who by the way, the first woman to ever win a presidential campaign as campaign manager. little different environment. >> it is. donald trump, a man of action, high-energy, high impact. first full day on the job in the white house as president trump. it's just remarkable what got done the first day. president trump and vice president pence hosted a major ceo of companies that are in manufacturing, great job creators. these men and women came here to really talk about how to unleash american manufacturing, how to create more jobs. and do that without the regulation taxation to which
7:04 pm
they become accustomed. such a productive conversation and i think they'll learn from each other. they went to the oval office and tried chatted more. steps away from here. president trump asked him, how many of you have been in the oval office before? a few hands went up. hours later, president trump hosted labor union leaders trade guys and gals. it was a remarkable exchange on day one. president trump made good on his promise to withdraw from tpp. and to look at trade deals, of the american worker, who is there for us as a country. not giving away to someone else. he will negotiate bilateral deals in the future. they have to benefit the american worker and the american interest. >> sean: i went through the entire list, of everything that got done he was inaugurated on friday. a lot has happened.
7:05 pm
you solve all these businesses, ford and general motors and apple and fiat chrysler, fox con, a $7 billion american plan, with carrier. air conditioning. it's interesting because it seems he has appointments now with the prime minister of great britain, the prime minister of israel, canada, and the president of mexico all lined up already. it's at the top priority right now? >> it's all of it. all of the above. it's getting the economy going but in many different phases. it's replacing oak obamacare. it's been detrimental to millions of americans. who already lost their insurance, their doctors, their plans. they were promised otherwise and they are in a much less favorable position now because of obamacare. it was not affordable, acceptable, even those who have
7:06 pm
the affordable care act, many of them can't use that health caree because they are premium far out of control that it's useless to them. if you live in arizona, 116% increase. pennsylvania, 60% increase. donald trump as president is making good on that promise to repeal and replace obamacare. he has a lot of help from paul ryan, the republican senate. everyone is working towards the solutions. the other thing is if you can unleash more american manufacturing, he can renegotiate trade deals, and stop those factories and those workers from bleeding out into mexico over to china, we've lost 70,000 factories. a remarkable statistic. if you can lower the tax burden, on the middle class, on the employer's employers, if you can encourage small business owners, if you can in energy, that under our feet and off our shores in a
7:07 pm
way that snowbird ever really done. invest in clean coal, shale, you are unleashing economic explosion and growth. 25 million jobs over ten years. promised to have tax reduction. and let me remind everybody that even george w. bush who came into office five weeks after the actual election through supreme court decision, he came into office, some people felt cheated, hurt, but he got his tax packets through by june of 22001. democratic senators, knew that their constituents wanted to share in that economic prosperity and tax reduction. i hope the same is true of this senate so that people all across the land can benefit. >> sean: you touched on a lot of the promises which i think propelled donald trump into this house that we are in right now.
7:08 pm
paul ryan wants a 20% business tax. we have one of the highest in the industrialized world. 35%. there will be a negotiation on that? and the repatriation of trillions. that's a lot of multinational corporation money that's been taken overseas. that's a big part of it. explain where they are because they just met tonight as well. >> they are meeting as we are talking tonight. they've been meeting quite a bit. which really tells you about the collaboration, cohesion, negotiation that is happening. in the interest of the american people. i will guarantee you one thing. corporate tax, the business tax will be reduced by president trump. dramatically. he promised, the way units make good on promises when the first couple days and hours, do what is important about reducing the burden. those are the individuals who are deciding whether they can
7:09 pm
attract and retain a workforce here in america or if they will have to go elsewhere. those are the people deciding whether they can afford to pay the workers benefits, pensions, retirement funds, and it certainly health care and other benefits along with a good salary, good wage. you've seen american business and the stock market already respond so positively to president donald j. trump because they know he is a master negotiator. the most brilliant communicator and connector i've ever met. you know what is refreshing? whoever came through the store as president who wasn't a politician? who didn't come to washington owing somebody something. it's liberating for him to come here and do this. as we speak it, he is in a different part of the white house right now meeting with the bicameral, bipartisan leaders of the house and senate. that includes summary like senator schumer who just said yesterday i was critical of
7:10 pm
donald trump but comes here and recognizing the president trump wants to find some common ground ways to work together. >> sean: 75% rollback in regulations? costing corporations billions and billions of dollars. the lower corporate tax rate, middle-class tax cuts. energy independence. obamacare, more competition, lower rates. the energy, the issue alone it took president reagan about two and a half years before he felt the full impact of his policies. what can people expect? 's become president reagan not unlike president trump has inherited a bleak economic picture for many americans. many americans feel trapped in poverty. 60 million women alone. 12.4 million will women who don't have health insurance as we speak. i'm talking about women because i'm acutely aware of the women's march this last weekend and i
7:11 pm
thought of all the things that we can count and quantify, all the items they could have listed on their list of reasons from the podium, about president obama who is president for eight years. president trump has been here for about eight hours. if this is your list of grievances, help is on the way. you have the greatest fixer and directs your and donald trump to help fix it. it will take a while does that impact only because so many people are so far behind. our on food stamps, stopped looking for work it, in poverty. that's why donald trump got to the labor union. >> sean: this was interesting. >> three hands went up when he asked them how many had been into the oval office. >> sean: this is the democratic party historically -- >> all the folks we grew up with. >> sean: i spent ten years in my life as a contractor.
7:12 pm
>> that's the life bread -- lifeblood. to share with him and vice president pence their ideas on how to work together. you asked me about madonna. she is hundreds of million dollars, platforms, agency or writing a check. >> sean: but about her thought process of blowing up the white house? >> where my four children's mother works? sure. she said it was taken out of context. i don't think that that can be taken out of context. i think people feel very safe and bold when they are up there surrounded by their friends and colleagues. the celebrity thing didn't work for hillary clinton. she thought people were coming to her rallies, they were coming for a free jay-z and beyonce concert. the obama's going to philadelphia for her. didn't work and it's not going to work now.
7:13 pm
i thought they missed an opportunity to really try to help women where women are in need. >> sean: let me ask you this. so far, you're talking about -- i've watched some of the media coverage of the inaugural address. he actually reiterated the very things he said in the campaign. he mentioned at the beginning of this interview, fulfilling promises. i guess as a conservative and the people that calm a radio show, what they want to know is it's real about originalists, extreme vetting. the wall. the tax cuts, energy independence. and trade deals. military and our va. all of this, that's a pretty ambitious agenda. >> that's donald trump. if anyone can achieve it, it's donald trump. it is real. it is also happening right now. right before you, steps away from here. high energy, high-impact place.
7:14 pm
what he also did today was an addition to withdrawing from t tpp, he instituted the mexico city policy where we stop sending money to countries that perform abortions and sterilizations. that's great on the heel of march for life coming on friday. representatives will be there. that's very unusual for administrations to do that. we know that that will be a very successful march. we know that the those women, they weren't welcomed in the march for women because they are on the wrong side of that issue because they dare to say that human life is precious. sliding into that. they also have a hiring freeze on nonmilitary -- >> sean: i want to get to that when we get back. 10% cut government spending and a 20% reduction in the labor force in government short of the military.
7:15 pm
coming up, part two of my interview with kellyanne conway. inside the trump white house and later tonight. >> yes, i am angry. yes, i am outraged. yes, i have thought an awful lot about blowing up the white hou white house. >> sean: blowing up the white house. hollywood snowflakes out in full force at this weekend's various women's marches. later tonight, laura ingraham will weigh in on that. and much more as "hannity" continues tonight from our nation's capital, washington, d.c. real ingredients, grilled and roasted. it's like you made it. and you did... n't. 90% of the world's largest supercomputers run on intel? that means you can take a universe of data - in your case literally - and turn it into medical discoveries, diagnostic breakthroughs... ...proof that black holes collapse into one singularity.
7:16 pm
i don't know what that is. but yes. innovation runs on supercomputers... ...and supercomputers run on intel. you are super smart. and super busy. ♪ ooh! ufo! false alarm, eyelash! tax refund, you can get an advance on that refund? [zombie] an advance on my tax refund. [john] doesn't take brains to see the value in that. [zombie] ha! [john] arghh. [vo] you can get a refund advance of up to $1250 no interest at block. [john] get your taxes won.
7:17 pm
>> live from america's new to headquarters. mike pompeo is now the cia director.
7:18 pm
he was sworn in earlier's tonight by vice president mike pence being confirmed by the senate. voting 66-42 to approve donald trump's picked to head the cia. some democrats objected to pompeo claiming he had inconsistent positions on issues like surveillance, torture, and rushes meddling in the 2016 election. minnesota governor mark dayton fainting tonight while delivering the state of the state address. it happened near the end of his 45 minute address. the 70-year-old democrat suddenly tumbled backwards, aides were able to catch the governor and save him from further injury. he appeared to have regained consciousness as he was let out of the room. later his son tweeted, i am with my dad now and he is doing great. back now to "hannity." >> sean: welcome back to "hannity." here is more of my interview with kellyanne conway at the donald trump white house. take a look. i want to talk about the news industry.
7:19 pm
and i make no bones about it, i'm a passionate conservative, i supported trump for president. they were fake news reports, russia report, the dossier, supposedly what was caught on film in a russian hotel. or whatever it's called there. a story one outcome of the mlk bust was taken out of the oval office. that was false. there has been irresponsible reckless reporting. i particularly watch interviews when you are on or reince priebus is on, it's pretty hostile. a look at people like chuck todd and the comments that he makes. how divisive the president's inaugural address was. do you find that the media is being particularly hostile and is there a difference between the way they treated president obama, candidate hillary clinton and president donald trump? >> it hardly qualifies as breaking news, president obama especially sean and his first couple days of office. he was treated much differently
7:20 pm
than -- it would be nice, we know that, if people showed respect for the office of president and his current optic append and give him a chance to do right by the american people. his inaugural speech was uplifting, unifying, he said our brown, black, white soldiers all bleed the patriotic blood. there isn't room to prejudice. if people want to scoff at that, and call themselves journalists, they ought to think about what they ought actually doing. if there twitter feed is 90% anti-trump. therthey are being political ha. we have a right to call that out. i provided a 70 minute interview yesterday with george stephanopoulos. they had a terrible line, hardly
7:21 pm
heard him. i could barely make out what he was saying. at 70 minute interview. abc news will put out a clip or two about it and come up with a headline. meet the press was even worse than that. >> sean: chuck todd called the inaugural speech insulting. >> i said it's not his job to give us his opinion. it scared people because oh, we have to go after she went after somebody in the media. i told him it is not his job. i knew you for 20 some years. it's not his job. as his opinion. on "meet the press," the president called me after that performance yesterday. he was glowing about it. vice president pence, said that the president called him and said did you see kellyanne? it suits their purpose that they don't want to -- to quote jack nicholson from a few good men, you can't handle the truth.
7:22 pm
when you are laughing at me, the highest ranking woman in the west wing, you are laughing at me on live television, and you are ridiculing me laying out facts that you can count and quantify and that matter, darn it. millions of women are in poverty. we've spent billions of dollars on education the last eight years for millions of kids to be in failing schools. >> sean: but the media -- when you made this statement, alternative facts, you were saying a different perspective. >> he was getting information from agencies that turned out not to be updated. >> sean: so i'm at the freedom ball, president trump the first lady was there, one of the first things he said, he asked the people at the ball, should he keep tweeting? this is a different era. >> the trump era. the trump effect. >> sean: you have twitter, instagram, facebook, you can bypass the media.
7:23 pm
>> he probably has 50 million followers by now. >> sean: my question is if it continues to be hostile and fake news can continues to come out, is there a possibility that things will change dramatically and maybe those people that colluded with hillary and we learned in the campaign, maybe they don't deserve the access because they are not living up to what they are supposed to do? >> someone who has good relations with the press, i consider myself, i think we have freedom of the press. this white house and the media are going to share joint custody of this nation for eight years. and we ought to be able to figure out how to coparent this new age term i hear. in a serious matter, the mlk bust story is so significant in this way, i talked about it on "meet the press." i know reince priebus has talked about on your network. i got zero coverage.
7:24 pm
that's a crime and here's why. we invited the press into the ovaoval office, i was there. it was to witness the president signing his executive orders. we let the pool press in, immediately the print pool are sent out the reports as mlk bust has been removed. i don't say his name publicly, i don't want you to get attacked like i do. with the press is doing out to me, i have secret service protection. packages delivered to my house. that is a shame and yes i hold into account for it. this guy puts it out, it gets tweeted and it gets reported 3,000 times. he still can't take it back. he apologized, he has not apologized. to the president. the damage is done because then people look at donald trump as the r word. the darn bust was right there. i was standing next to it. why don't you ask us? why don't you say, where is the
7:25 pm
bust? it presented negativity. >> sean: kellyanne, congratulations. it's an honor to see y
