tv The Fox News Specialists FOX News May 1, 2017 2:00pm-3:01pm PDT
charles payne. his show kicks off an hour from now. "the specialist," they are brand-new and they will see you right now. the specialist, like the doctor, we'll see you. here they are. >> eric: hello, everyone. i am eric bolling with eboni williams and kat timpf. thank you so much for joining us. the inaugural episode of "the fox news specialists" ." every day, eboni, kat and i will be discussing today's biggest stories we will be joined by two specialists for unpredictable and unexpected commentary. let's meet today's specialist for he started his first company selling garbage bags door to door at age 12. he doesn't golf but he does love basketball, so he bought the dallas mavericks. he specializes in all things
entrepreneurship. he is mark cuban, and he's here. he's the cope reducer and cohost of a show on showtime. he's worked on presidential campaigns, george w. bush and john mccain. he has competed into iron man competitions. his specialty is nashville songwriting. mark mckinnon is here. welcome, gentlemen. cuban, finally in studio sitting next to me. >> and i am wearing a suit. >> eric: mr. mckinnon. >> congratulations on the show. we've been working together, the three of us, for a long time but never at the same time. do you want to get this party started? 5:00 will never be the same. let's hit today's top stories. one of the president's biggest
promises since he hit the campaign trail, repeal and replace obamacare. thanks to what's being called obamacare lite, republicans were unable to seal the deal with paul ryan's plan. reports swirling onto they suggest they may finally be close to reaching a deal on health care. senior white house official telling fox a vote to repeal and replace obamacare could happen as early as wednesday. earlier today, i sat down with the president to discuss this and other issues. health care. we are going to get that past? >> president trump: the one mistake i made with health care, we have one plan that's been going through. it's been getting better and better and better. somebody saying oh, the people who voted for trump -- they are going to get the greatest. these are the greatest people. were either -- were going to have a great planner i'm not signing it. i said from day one the best thing i can do is elect obamacare die. it's not fair to the people. it's going to be very good. i don't want to set deadlines.
i think it's going to be approved, it could be soon, but it could be not so soon. it's going to happen. remember this. i've been really focused on this for like, seven weeks. >> eric: all rights, eboni. we may get a vote this week. >> eboni: you know what i'm more concerned with is instead of a fast vote, something that's actually better. i've never been somebody fighting, necessarily making obamacare better. if you have to repeal, i'm not beefing with that. these deadlines, the thing president trump said is i'm not concerned with the deadline. i'd rather get it right, however long it may take. >> eric: kat, they decided it was the first thing they're going to do, health care. that's big issue. >> kat: they should not have done that, in my opinion. i agree they should wait to find something perfect but at the
same time, not doing anything is making a decision. it's like if you are with your friends and you are arguing where to go to dinner, if you argue too long, the only thing that's going to be left is the diner with the waitresses that smelled like cigarettes and broken dreams who don't have teeth, like single-payer in this case. nobody wants that a nobody wins. >> eric: let's talk about the politics. >> here is the challenge. they were able to get the freedom caucus on board because they now have in the billing option where it goes to the states in the can opt out, things like pre-existing conditions. the president said yesterday that he thinks pre-existing conditions should be in it. they should be guaranteed. if they are guaranteed, the freedom caucus is going to have a problem. >> kat: prices will go up if you have pre-existing. >> stakeholders or health care providers, the insurance companies and the patients. >> eboni: that's the thing nobody wants to say. you are right.
under what we currently have, there's no way for more people in america to have coverage, which is the goal of obamacare, probably the only thing it did successfully. but it so much more expensive. you cannot do both. >> eric: let me give you the conservative version of why i think everyone can do better. we can have lower premiums, lower costs for health care by providing competition. my biggest problem with the original bill was never allowed for health care across state lines. competition drives down prices. >> look at this like a business but how much do you think premiums could go down? >> eric: premiums or health care? how is this? how much can health care go down? i tell you how much health care can go down and i will tell you how much premiums can go down. >> have you seen anyone say they are going to sell more policies based off this? no, because it doesn't play out. just because they wanted to happen doesn't mean it's the right thing to do. they better be careful what they
ask for because it's not going to work the way they plan. >> eric: my biggest concern is that it doesn't happen at all. that it happens in phase two or phase three. stiglitz got to happen. the worst thing could be four -- to roll it out and have it go -- >> what was the number one thing obama had to do when it came to selling the aca? he had to get as many healthy people on it is possible. if and when this passive, what's the number one thing president trump is going to have to do? >> eboni: give it as a mandate? >> the tax. he's going to have to get healthy people to sign up. he and obama have the exact same challenge. >> kat: just because you are being penalized.
-- by the insurance company rather than the government. >> eboni: it doesn't make life better. >> kat: thinks covered by insurance have been rising. there's one competition in one area only. >> eric: absolutely. when you remove the mandate and you are forced to get health people on it. if you don't have the mandate, healthy people say i'm not going to do that. what about the freedom caucus who now is on board. somehow they were fighting it and now they are on board. i defended those guys tooth and nail for a long time. wait a minute. this isn't that different but you are on board? >> i agree we have to expand the staples. i like -- give it back to the states, if they want to take up pre-existing conditions, let the governors deal with it. >> what about the health care? politics is one thing, what about the people? >> eboni: what is not being
talked about, health insurance and health care. >> kat: they are very different things. >> get the health insurance companies out. the day has come where i think we can go however -- >> eboni: insurance is supposed to be for catastrophic things. >> eric: in libertarian land, single-payer. >> all the risk pool money the plans put out. we paint through the back door now because they are doing $150 billion for risk pool. >> kat: it's not patient centered because the customer isn't the patient. the insurance company is. >> the key is to make the pool bigger. >> eric: rand paul would say that. that would bring insurance costs down. it doesn't bring the health care costs down.
the way to do that is to provide competition. let a hospital compete with another hospital. get the insurance companies out. >> eboni: how are the doctors going to feel? i like your idea of competition but i'm worried about how it will affect health care itself. people are getting less for the coverage they are providing, i don't know how we incentivize the quality. if it starts being that cheap, so to speak. >> kat: make a doctor's answered patient not insurance companies. >> eric: do you know what the news is? it's big news. people care about health care. >> and this stuff is hard. >> eric: it is. it's fun talking about health care. what's the biggest threat to the country? is in isis, a crazy korean dictator, the democrats? we will hear what president trump sees as our biggest threat when fox news
"the fox news specialists" continued. we asked a group of young people when they thought they should start saving for retirement. then we asked some older people when they actually did start saving. this gap between when we should start saving and when we actually do is one of the reasons why too many of us aren't prepared for retirement. just start as early as you can. it's going to pay off in the future. if we all start saving a little more today, we'll all be better prepared tomorrow. prudential. bring your challenges.
>> eboni: president trump took some time out of a schedule to talk to eric bolling today on the debut of "the fox news specialists." they discussed many hot topics including how he's handling north korean dictator kim jong-un as well as isis. >> eric: mr. president, thank you for joining us. let's start with north korea. a lot of people have been talking about it. you mentioned it with cbs. kim jong-un, is there a redline for president trump with north korea? >> president trump: i am not like president obama where you draw a redline, as you said, a redline in the sand and then lots of bad things happen and he never goes over the redline. i covered his redline for him with syria. i will say you see what's going on. it's very, very bad. it's very threatening to us and to many other allies. if you look at south korea,
japan and others. it's a very horrible thing that's going on. they statements are very inflammatory. they are horrible. we'll have to see. i don't like drawing redlines. >> eric: what would it take? would it take a missile launch into south korea, conventional? >> president trump: i've been well known for saying nothing when it comes to the military. when they announced it was going to, they were going mosul. why do they keep saying it? it was supposed to be a quick battle for mosul. it's still going on because the enemy knew they were coming. you just don't talk about it. you do what you have to do and you don't talk about it. when people say, i was asked yesterday, exactly when would you go in, at what time would you go in? it's ridiculous. i don't want to talk about it. he is very threatening. he's a big threat to the world.
>> eric: how safe our troops along the demilitarized zone and our ally, south korea. house safe are they with some of the defense systems we've provided? >> president trump: nobody is safe. who is safe? the guy has nuclear weapons. these are brave soldiers, great troops, and they know the situation. 28,000 troops on the line, and they are right there. nobody is safe. we are probably not safe over here. if he gets the long-range missiles, we are not safe either. we have to do something about it, and we will see what happens. >> eric: is he your biggest concern foreign policy wise? >> president trump: i think probably yes. we have made tremendous strides in our fight against isis. we have no choice. there is an evil they are, and we have to solve it. we can't let, you know, when i first saw the heads being chopped off, i said to myself, i've never seen that.
not since medieval times have we seen the things that are going on in the middle east. so we have to solve the problem. we should have never been there. we should have never gone into. we should have never attacked iraq. they didn't knock down the world trade center, by the way. once we were there, we should have never gotten out the way president obama got us out. the void was formed an isis was formed and now they are in 32 different countries. i tell you what. i inherited a mess. >> eboni: eric, you are speaking with the president. he is gravely concerned on these fronts from a national security perspective. many times, i heard you giving kind of an opportunity for a line to be established as to add one point the president is going to move forward in a particular way. he refused. it from your take, is that the way to go? keep all options on the table? >> eric: i kept trying to get him to get to a redline. i know they don't want to do
that but i think the american people want to know what it's going to take. at the last minute, deciding something. i don't think they have the capability of getting anywhere near here but japan could be at risk. i asked him about china. china has to step up. they provide energy to north korea. they provide food to north korea. if there is a war on north koreans well, there's going to be a massive refugee problem going to china. they are not going to go south. they are going to go to china. he wasn't very specific. >> part of the problem is, he is scaring the hell out of everybody every day. in general. north korea, iran, isis. syria. all of these catastrophic
potential conflicts. instead of scaring us, i think he should be talking about why he got voted in, his strengths, his confidence and what we can do. tell us the good stuff. tell us where this military is going and these are threats but here's how we're going to deal with it. we don't need a timeline we just need a sense he can do it. >> kat: absolutely. when he was running, he was more into situations that involve diplomacy. we need to do everything we can to make sure we don't have war with north korea. >> he went into syria, he acted. people like nancy pelosi said props for that. >> eric: two-thirds of the american people approved of syria. >> biggest foreign policy mistake, and donald trump kept his word on it. >> kat: why was it a mistake? >> obama said he was going to do something and didn't. you lose your credibility with other world leaders. >> eboni: i think that's where
america as a nation is not very consistent or clear about where we want to be. do we want to intervene or don't wait? he ran as a nationalist candidate and that america was first and syria was serious problem. when he bombed it, a lot of people are celebrating. it's an inconsistent message we are getting from the present. >> if you look at these individually, you can say he dealt with it. when you look at it in aggregate, it's scary. he went from being voted in -- >> eric: are we any less safe based on what he's done? dropping bombs on syria and afghanistan? he's got to instill confidence that we can deal with whatever enemy comes along. >> instead he is saying they are at risk in korea. we are at risk here. >> this is where the meetings with china have helped and have been productive. this is where, china can choke them off with sanctions.
they have a lot of things they are offering to north korea and they can be choked off. >> he is one of the world's greatest salespeople. i think he wants to sit down these meetings and do face-to-face diplomacy. hopefully he gets the substance he needs. >> kat: people criticizing when he does that. >> eric: you want your american president to sit down with kim jong-un? >> kat: absolutely. i'm not saying grab his cheeks and say you are so wonderful. talk, do anything you can to avoid war. >> it hasn't worked not to meet with him. >> kat: exactly. what do you have to lose by meeting with him? 10 million people live in the capital. if there's a war, it's going to be huge bloodshed. >> mccain calls him a crazy little fat kid. we don't know the exact issues but every meeting he's had face-to-face with the head of
government has turned out positively. he's a great salesperson. hopefully they will give him the tools and information to offer diplomacy. >> eric: he could bring back president xi of china. last time he visited, he bombed syria. bring him back. >> eboni: i love diplomacy as much as the next person but i think you are right, eric. it doesn't work all the time. >> kat: you should try it. >> eboni: may day protests are normally focused on workers rights at this year it's taken a brand-new meaning. thousands hitting the streets to rally against president trump's immigration policies. you will hear from them when "the fox news specialists" returns. stay with us.
aim at some of president trump's policies, including immigration. >> we are here today in front of immigration and customs enforcement, which has become a symbol of terror and hate. >> we want to make sure families are not being separated. we want to make sure there is not corporations out there supporting the trump agenda which is an agenda that breaks up families. >> there is fear and anxiety but what gives me hope and resiliency is that the communities are saying this is not the way we should operate in the united states. we are not going to go back in the shadows. we are going to fight because this is a country we love and we want to make it better. >> kat: mayday is historically a socialist protest and now it's an anti-trump protest. i thought the purpose was to show support for your cause. if everyone's got a different cause, what's the point? >> we did a show focusing on the democratic resistance a week or
two ago and we discovered they are galvanized and not unified. we did a feinstein town hall. she used to be a liberal lefty from san francisco. now the democrats think she is a sellout because she's not for socialized medicine. >> kat: everyone is mad about something. what's the point? >> it's america. this is what you do. you protest. you get the word out, particularly in social media because it's going to get covered. it's going to get tweeted, snapped, website blogs. you start somewhere and evolve. >> eboni: i love a good protest and i've been in several. as a college student, law school student, first amendment rights are fantastic. one of the things i love about the country but i agree with you, kat. immigration, lgbtq, police brutality, six or seven issues. mark, when you have maybe four
messages, can any of them be effective or is it okay to not put all your eggs in one basket? >> that's the challenge. i remember when -- >> kat: there are a lot of people who are antisocialist. >> eric: saturday with the climate change people. today it's the mayday people. there is the common denominator. they are all anti-trump. aggressively. think about this. trump is a unifier on that regard. >> kat: that he makes them all mad? >> eric: there were 200,000 -- >> eboni: and they are not all paid, eric bolling. >> diplomacy starts at home. go talk to them. don't just say i don't want to acknowledge them. you have to talk and you have to
learn. >> eric: you guys are saying the same thing about donald trump, the candidate who could never become president. because he was to anti-illegal immigration pretty hasn't changed his stance on immigration, and he won, and they are still protesting. >> 76% -- >> eboni: i would submit he has changed in his issue with immigration. he ran saying he's getting rid of rapists and murderers and instead we are seeing people who do not fall into that criminal category being deported. here's my question, eric. when he sees this type of resistance, organize protests, so far we think it's been nonviolent. do you think to mark cuban's point, it can be effective? is it something he's thinking about? >> eric: i honestly don't think the protests do, but i think his children do. i think ivanka and jared kushner, they have a year to
this. the climate change stuff, and i think that has softened donald trump because they have been saying there's lots of people out there, millions of people. not because of the protest, whatever reason they are making the issue, it's making its way to their advisors. >> he works hard to talk to people overseas. he works so little to talk to people who didn't vote for him or didn't vote at all. >> kat: it's kind of a two-way street. makes it a little difficult. >> eric: true story, the producer sent us information on the mayday protests this morning and i'm not kidding. it said "hundreds of thousands expected to protest." and then tens of thousands. now it's thousands. a few people. >> eboni: the president was renewing his feud with the media.

i'm against the fake media. if you look at cnn, the way they cover me, no matter what you do, it is negative. hits, hits. i love the media. i think the media is great and if i do something bad, treat me badly. but they don't tell it like it is, and even on the 100 days, not to make a big deal out of it. you're going to see if a lot of great things happen for the next 100 days also, but we've done a lot. >> eric: kat, your thoughts on saturday night with the white house correspondents' dinner with the media elites and their bowties and steaks. then you had president trump talking to his deplorable peopl people. >> kat: he can go somewhere where everyone's going to make fun of him or he can go somewhere where everyone is going to cheer for him. makes a lot of sense by the fake news thing is always funny. he does kind of treat any bad news like fake news. >> eboni: this is my thing, i believe in fairness. the cnn relationship is adversarial. that's where they are, and i get
that. they are petty and mean with him. they are petty and mean right back. the president says here he's okay with some media. i would love to hear him say that's a fair critique. let me take a look. if he said that, i think the whole, it's not all media thing thing -- >> blowing off the correspondents' dinner with great move. >> kat: we have issues. you start screaming, fake news, fake news. you have to listen sometimes. >> eric: cuban, when you have an adversary who was wildly unpopular, is it smart to continue the fight with them? >> the first 756 times but at some point, you've got to do your job. it was a great interview. you asked great questions prayed he could go into the substance or depth on anything. they got the budget approved through october 1st, best move so far. he could be up there bragging about look, we went across the
aisle. we got things done. this is my example of me being able to bring people together and get something passed. didn't even mention it. his finest moment and he didn't mention it. >> eric: if he feels he's being treated unfairly, mainstream media or print media, why shouldn't he continue to fight? he can tweet to 100 million people. >> eboni: that's fine. is it the issue with the media or accountability? if your issue is with people who were treating you unfairly and being mean, that's fine. >> kat: i would rather have a press that is tough on the president. that's how you have him be accountable. i would rather them be too tough and not tough at all. >> eric: what about the last eight years under president obama? >> kat: i am saying that was bad. >> the golden era of journalism,
the opportunity to be a truly great journalist. we all have to do a better job with fake news because there's a lot of it out there. part of it is what happening is that consumers are becoming aware of it. on our show, we are shooting something life and there was a thing where the president through a hat up in the air. he signs the kid's hat and throws it up in the air. looks like he threw it up from the kid. twitter went mad. the kid caught the hat. everybody has to be more carefu careful. 20 years, i started a blog in 2004 because someone wrote a story about me and the mavericks that was complete nonsense. i put in the blog with the facts were. this is the president, the leader of the free world. he has access to everything. he can do more than 40 characters. if someone is misleading. if cnn says something wrong, put out the fact. >> your point is good. he can't say everything he
doesn't like his fake news. >> you have the world's biggest platform to communicate around the world. >> he will be more credible if he says -- >> eric: he takes it out on the "new york times," "the washington post" but he will still go to them when he needs something. you have to at least -- here's the story. >> eboni: to your point, every president has to have a dialogue with certain parts of mainstream media. that's necessary. >> eric: if he feels there's one group that will completely never give a hat tip to his side of the story, why should he embrace it? >> that's smart. >> eric: recently retired former president obama, sounds great, has spent time rubbing
i realize that ah, that $100k is not exactly a fortune. well, a 103 how long did it take you two to save that? a long time. then it's a fortune. i told you we had a fortune. get closer to your investment goals with a conversation. and you're about in to hit 'send all' on some embarrassing gas. hey, you bought gas-x®! unlike antacids, gas-x ® relieves pressure and bloating fast. huh, crisis averted.
banking $400,000 in speaking fees. $400,000 per speech. the criticism isn't just coming from those on the right. "new york times" issued a blistering takedown of the president saying "it's disheartening that a man whose candidacy was premised on immoral examination of politics. now joins almost every modern president in cashing in." van jones also had words for the president and perhaps some advice on how we can fix the problem. >> if he were to do a poverty tour first, he shouldn't -- every other president went out there and give them big speeches. from a moral point of view, it would be great for him. >> eboni: this is my issue. i think everybody in america knows how you feel politically about president obama. i think were van jones and many progressives are being tone-deaf here is why are we demonizing
and equating it as a moral failure to want to make money? here's where i'm coming from. many people are left of center or something like that. but we still work hard and we want to do well in life and live a good life and a good lifestyle. not be made to feel bad about i it. can you help me reconcile it? >> eric: i think van is 100% right. president obama is going to make a billion dollars. he's going to be like this guy over here. >> eboni: what is the problem? >> eric: nothing. if the people who elected you, do the poverty tour. he was a grassroots organizer, and went door to door. >> eboni: so he shouldn't do well now? >> what was your advice? to go i have a real problem with what he's doing. >> eboni: please tell me why. i can't -- these people, van jones, bernie sanders, everyone condemning obama with her. she also made a whole bunch of money speaking to wall street as well. why is it okay for hillary?
>> i have a real problem. he's not charging enough. president reagan got a million dollars a speech in japan in 1989. he is killing the market for the rest of the people. charge more. >> eric: he could give a few away first, right? 's >> kat: he also said that wall street fatcats have too much money. now they have 400 grand less. maybe that's what he's trying to do. of course it's hypocritical, but who cares? there's plenty of people that i've said this person is a problem. but if they said come talk to me and i'll give you 400 grand, i will say "i'm on my way." maybe even "i love you." >> eboni: can you not make money and still be passionate and compassionate for people? >> of course.
>> the hardest job in the world. get paid. >> eric: he signed a $65 million book deal. he's going to be okay. but how are you going to be the president who says i am of the people, for the people, by the people. then you get out. >> i am stupid rich and i get to give money to anybody for anything anytime i want my try to help as many people as i can. >> eric: you never played like you are one of the people. >> i've got a theory. >> eboni: this is how rumors get started, mark cuban. what do nfl draft day and o.j. simpson have in common? they are making headlines because of this t-shirt. wait until you see this. stay with us. s medicine that may
