focus would be a little bit later on the money is who gets to keep it when you get it, do you just give it to the governments or do you keep it yourself and is that considered a tax break when you keep your own money? steve: i guess the audio guy is actually programming the show because we are going to be talking about the president of the united states as he unveiled his tax plan yesterday. first, on the way in to the big tax plan announcement, our own pete hegseth said excuse me, mr. president, can i have a word with you sure, pete, i have got like three or four questions. the first question was about national anthem protest what did he say. >> you have certainly started a conservation about the nfl. important. your critics say it's been a distraction. you say it's critical. you talk about words like patriotism and citizenship. why it important to you. >> i'm doing a lot. we passed over 50 pieces of legislation. we have a supreme court judge.
3:03 am
we have a much stronger military. we have strong borders now. we're going to get the wall. we're going to get all the things that we said. and now we are going as you said you know today is the big day. we are announcing the biggest tax cuts in the history of our country. there has been no distraction. but the nfl cannot disrespect our country. they cannot disrespect our flag or our national anthem. and they can't have people sitting down or kneeling down during our national anthem and i saw this a year ago with kaepernick i said is is a terrible thi. i thought it was terrible. and then it builds up a little bit and little bit more. and see what's happening and you see more and more and more. i came out and made a statement in alabama the other day. i said i think it's very disrespectful to our country and world has picked it up. guess what? most people agree with me. the nfl is in a box. they have to do something about it. they are disrespecting and when i say they, n a way it is they because they can stop it. they have rules for everything. you can't dance in the end
3:04 am
zone. you can't wear the pink socks relative to breast cancer which one of the players -- they have rules for everything. why aren't they honoring this country by enforcing a rule that's been in existence for a long time. so the nfl and the players really have to do the honor of the country. it's for the honor of the country. they have to respect our country. they have to respect our flag and our anthem. pete: what prompted that in alabama. >> i have so many friends that are owners. they are in a box. i have spoken to a couple of them. they say we are in a situation where we have to do something. i think they're afraid of their players you want to know the truth. i think it's disgraceful. and they have got to be tough and they have got to be smart. because you look at the ratings. the ratings have gone way down. the stadiums -- i have seen a couple stadiums over the last few weeks they're losing -- there are a lot of empty seats. i couldn't even believe it. when it comes to the respect of our nation, when it comes to the respect of our anthem
3:05 am
and our flag, they have no choice. you have to have people stand with respect. brian: right now the tv ratings are down year to year and last year was down. keep in mind the most popular league in the country. they are down 11%. you wonder what's going to happen we see all those things happening on social media where people burning their paraphernalia. i never remember that happening. maybe if your team lost four days in a row they will have bags over their head but now they will show up. people feeling they have to make a choice, patriotism or football. that's where we are at right now. abby: president said most of the country agrees with me. new fox news poll last knight said 55 percent said it's inappropriate to be dealing during the national anthem. i love these interviews with president trump because is he off script and gives us a sense of conversations that he has behind closed doors look, i have talked to some these owners, they tell pee they are in a tough position. steve: they are in a box.
3:06 am
abby: they are afraid, he thinks, of the players. that's not a comment you would hear from a president ever. he let's us know the important conversations that we need to hear more about. steve: donald trump being donald trump. the next big question mark in the nfl is what are they going to do tonight at the packers, bears game at green basement the fans have been asked to lock farms moment of unification. that's what the packers are going to do. apparently they don't know what the bears are going to do. the cowboys are going to stand at the next game and so will the patriots. brian: come winter time packers fans so cold because they are cold and want to hug each other. if you know what's going to happen this weekend outside thursday night game which should be a good one and on the surface should be rated high. looks as though one team will be standing and that's the new england patriots. they already decided that even though 14 took knees last week. they are all going to be standing this week.
3:07 am
steve: good. brian: it was about 12 players. after the president talked it was many more. we will see how this goes from here on in. you know, you had the running back on buffalo stretching out during the national anthem. steve: let's talk about what is going on in a high school in a suburban high school. the staff put together a display and apparently what it was supposed to do was talk about first amendment rights. it was recreation of dred scott's proper ray to display a u.s. flag display. it featured a flag on the ground which they did back in 1989 at the art institute of chicago. so they are recreating that. but they made it look like a door mat and this has some people furious what are you doing if you wanted to recreate something from 1989, there are pictures of it. just show the picture. don't actually put a flag on the ground. you are not supposed to do that. abby: here is a letter coming in from the principal
3:08 am
the new york community high school said this is no tway meant to disrespect the flag, the military or the government. rather it was used for students to reconcile their feelings about current issues and whether first amendment rights are protected. they are trying to defend that decision. as you said, you should never use the flagging in that manner. steve: it should never touch the ground. abby: absolutely not. brian: other thing pete talked to the president about was about his tax plan. they have did something very smart. they have got the house, the white house, and the senate together. it took a little bit of extra time. finally they said this is a plan we can get behind. no one gets everything. this is just between republicans. unlike healthcare where they were going at each other from day one the president called the house plan kind of mean and the senate plan never got off the ground. this time they are all on the same page. there are certain things that every president loves more than something else, foreign policy was bush 41's main thing. but, when it comes to taxes, you could see the president's eyes light up. this is all about the economy.
3:09 am
this is his main thing. abby: you hear it in his voice. this seems to be the issue he has been most passionate about. he has been most passionate about since day one campaign trail. he was out in indianapolis promoting this new tax plan. here is some of that. >> it's time for washington to learn from the wisdom of indiana. we need washington to promote american jobs instead of obstructing them. we're going to cut taxes for the middle class, make the tax code simpler and more fairer for every day americans. and we are going to bring back the jobs and wealth that have left our country and most people thought left our country for good. we want tax reform that is pro-growth, pro-jobs, pro-worker, pro-family and, yes, tax reform that is pro-american. steve: so let's take a look at some of the details.
3:10 am
it reduces the number of tax brackets from 7 down to 3. and they will be 12, 25 and 35. cuts the corporate tax rate to 20. the president said yesterday on the way to the chopper he wanted 15 but the republicans talked him into it. doubles the standard deduction from 12 to 24,000. eliminates the estate tax, death tax. increases child tax credit. abby: democrats saying this is more money into rich people's pockets. brian: helps rich households? no, people who have farms, the father dies, next thing you know you have the huge estate tax you have to sell the farm or break it up. i don't think that's called rich. it's called working. talk about lowering rates for companies. those companies hire people. if they have more money they hire more people. they possibly grow. there is a theory to it my hope is that the american people and talk show hosts looking to juice up ratings will say okay, wait a second. let's not make this a
3:11 am
cartoon. this is something you have to take a deep breath, talk to people that know. which we he will be doing every day as much as we can and see how it will effect you. abby: that is wishful thinking, brian. i was going through the paper and i couldn't find one positive article about tax reform when people want tax reform. steve: we have grover norquist. he is the authority on it he says this will turbo charge the economy. we will have the balance of pete's interview with the president. and, as if that is not enough, the trump exclusive interview coming up. we exclusively have jillian mele with the news. jillian: good morning, guys. one more wake up until the weekend. something forward to look forward to. abby: hey, hey. i will be here all weekend long. jillian: oopsys, i will shut my mouth. get you caught up on headlines. a teenager charged with murder accused of stabbing another student in the middle of a classroom. pulled a switchblade on two boys at their new york city high school killing a 15-year-old and leaving a

brian: protesters originally rooted in black lives matter we understand. "the washington post" found
3:18 am
this we want to share. black shootings down 2015. over 70% 2016 also were armed with guns or knives at the time of the shooting. the question then raised is this: do these protesters in the nfl really know why they are taking a knee and has it been blunted by the fact they are doing it during the national anthem? here to weigh in is host of the blaze lawrence jones. you saw those stats. if there is one there is too many. if it's without being threatening a cop. what do you think about this? >> well, it's obvious that there is a disconnect between the community and the police. and i think we can talk about that issue separately about police brutality in the cases where they exist. but you can't generalize all cops and say they are all pigs like colin kaepernick did who was the leader of this movement. it would be like. brian: that was son his socks. >> that was on his socks and that's what he interpreted like calling all black folks criminals. how would black people feel if the police did that to us.
3:19 am
i have a proposition for my conservatives. instead of always telling the liberals when you are you going to mention black-on-black crime? this should be something we take on about improving the lives of the community. taking on this fight of crime in the community. that way when the left tries to attack us, we have a record of going into the community and saying, you know what? this is our fight. brian: here is the numbers on homicide victims and black op. black crime 781 went up in 2016. look how high knows numbers are and you say should we worry about the 233 yes? should would he be more worried about the 7 or 8,000? >> absolutely. >> you should be concerned about both of them. when you say you care about black lives and only focus on one aspect of black lives, you lose credibility. that's the problem with this movement. we have rahm emanuel who wants to take a knee and all the other mayors in these cities want to take a knee. they have this issue of crime. but they don't want to take
3:20 am
a knee for that then it becomes problematic. like i said, conservatives, we can turn this around on them. we can actually go and do the work. they don't have a record of improving the communities. we can do that. brian: do you know what? president trump should do that. >> and i have been -- brian: jim brown's program in the inner city. >> here is the problem. he doesn't need just them. i have been asking the president do this. his new plan for black america tore go to the cities. he likes rallies. go to the community himself. talk with the people. i guarantee you a different response than the media shows. brian: you know, this his one-on-one skills are without pier. >> yes. brian: he does this thing called listening rather than talking. >> exactly. he connects with people. brian: i have news for you take some revive written. you are on outnumbered at noon and i need you on your a game. got you at 5. brian: more on president

3:35 am
pete you got great sound from yesterday. steve: good morning. pete: thanks for having me. you played other sound on the nfl at the top of the show as well. this is a president doubling down on this issue, believing it's a cultural clash worth having. that patriotism has eroded in our country and that the nfl is a signal of that we also had a chance to talk with him on a number of issues. he was there for release of his tax reform plan. also, why did the healthcare plan go down? did they want to give it another go? does that include working with chuck and nancy? we asked him all those questions and this is what he had to say. pete: mr. president we are here in indiana you are going to launch your tax reform plan in front of this crowd. who is your tax plan intended to help? >> really we say the working people. the middle class, the people that really haven't been treated right, pete, haven't been treated right. also it's going to be for businesses where they are going to bring in jobs. this is a tax plan for jobs and growth. growth for our country. it will be the largest
3:36 am
reduction in terms of dollars of any plan ever in the history of the country. and it's going to be something very special. but it's really for the middle income people. and it's for the working people and it's for jobs. pete: are there any rates or brackets that are nonnegotiable? >> yeah. the 20% is nonnegative yable. i wanted to do it 15%. this is for business. i wanted to do it 15%. you look at china, china is 15%. other countries are at higher. right now we are the highest taxed nation in the world. when i finish the plan, we will be among the lower tax, which is very good. i would like to be the lowest. you can't be the lowest there are some that are ridiculous. i wanted to be at 156789 in fact, i was going to start at 15 and maybe negotiate up to 20, but the numbers really work at 20. we are putting it in at 20 but we are not going to negotiate. pete: mr. president, the healthcare bill went down this week in the senate. what about this plan makes you feel confident it won't meet the same fate.
Check
3:37 am
>> healthcare didn't go down. we have the votes. reconciliation is a disaster. it ends on friday. we don't have enough time. we have one senator a yes vote. great person is he in the hospital. we can't do it by friday. we have the votes. we will do it some time at the beginning of the year but prior to the election in november. pete: do you still have confidence in mitch mcconnell. >> i do. look, i have dealt with mitch for a long time i think he has to get rid of the filibuster rule. it's a disaster for the republican party because it means you needs 60 votes on most pieces of legislation and you are not going to get. there are 270 bills right now sitting before the senate. you are not going to get them approved because you are not going to get 8 democrats. they want to keep this horrible filibuster rule which says basically you need 60. so that means you need 8 democrats to get something approved. you are not going to get that so they have to get rid of the filibuster rule. otherwise, they are just making a mistake. but, no, i have confidence. look, i really like all of
3:38 am
these people. i think terrific people. what i'm going to do is we do have the votes for healthcare. but the filibuster, you know, if you look at what is going on with respect to timing, we have only until friday for reconciliation. so we're going into next year. in the meantime, i'm going to start negotiating with democrats and we will see's what. pete: do you feel like when you start negotiating with democrats, do you feel like you can trust chuck schumer and nancy pelosi. >> it's not a question of trust. first of all, i have a nice relationship with them. it's not really trust. if we can do a great bipartisan healthcare bill i'm okay with that we have the the votes to get it done. you can't go do it when somebody is in the hospital. when you have 52 votes and you need 51, it's, you know, it's very hard to get because you always have somebody and some cases they will want to grandstand. a lot of bad things happen. we have the votes but we don't have the time because it's friday, literally friday it ends at a certain time on friday. we will bring it into a few
3:39 am
months from now. we will vote it it's block grants. it's going to be great healthcare. in the meantime i have that little period of time. i will negotiate with the democrats. if we can come up with a fantastic healthcare bill that's okay for me. good for both parties bipartisan. pete: guys, he was in great spirits. i feel like is he talking on an issue he wants to be talking about in tax reform as a businessman. he has wanted to for a long time so he and his crew certainly in high spirits when he took the stage in indiana. brian: after all the problems in healthcare sadly not a big deal when it fails. used to it failing. this was somewhat of a surprise that this got so much momentum but in the big picture i don't know what he means when he says he has the votes one guy in a hospital. i don't know what that means. do you? pete: he seems to think that given time, that they will come arranged. and with the wind of tax reform they can get a win and move into it. steve: also as a businessman, the business model of just working with republicans has not worked. he has made it very clear he will have to do wheeling and
3:40 am
dealing with democrats. abby: on healthcare and tax reform. pete, one thing he said is a red line 20% on corporate tax. i started 1520 give myself wiggle room and i'm not budging on 20. pete: he said that again in the speech. 15 is where he wants to be. he realizes how pay for it. 20 where they will land. brian: did he tell you how much money pete hegseth fortune you can keep? pete: he said pete, you are in trouble. we have a special tax bracket just for you. brian: hegseth bracket. steve: last president told you could keep your doctor if you liked him. pete: that's right. steve: thank you for going out to the capital of indianapolis. abby: thank you, pete. we will see you soon. go to jillian for headlines. jillian: good thursday morning to you and to you at home as well. fbi warning about a new potentially deadly terror weapon. the director says it's not a question of if but when they will arrive in the u.s. >> i think we do know that terrorist organizations have
3:41 am

how are you doing? >> i'm doing very well. those three statements were written not only before this tax plan was put forward, but those are the same statements they put out when reagan cut taxes and when bush cut taxes and they would have said the same thing when john f. kennedy cut taxes. at some point the democrats have got to acknowledge that their policy of higher taxes have slowed and hurt the economy. and we need to get tax rates down to be competitive internationally. steve: i know, grover, you spoke to the vice president yesterday in anticipation of this tax cut and tax reform bill. but you say the plan, with the administration is this is just phase one. this is going to be one tax cut. and tax reform phase. but there are going to be more during the administration. >> well, certainly. we had a tax cut every year that we had a republican president and a republican congress under bush. republican states like florida and texas and north carolina you have a tax cut every year. with trump, as long as there is a republican house and
4:19 am
astronaut, there will be a tax cut every year. this is going to be a larger one. it's going to be dramatic. and it is. but we'll go into next year and the year after that and there will be things that we weren't able to fit into this tax bill that will get into the next one. abby: you say this will turbo charge the economy. the president on the stump yesterday saying this is about the forgotten man and farmer that can't afford to keep his land and business. this is about bringing jobs back to the u.s. looking at this bigger picture, grover, who is this tax plan best for? who is it worse for? >> it's best for the person who, for the last 8 years, didn't have a job. because we were growing at 2% a year and we had lousy job numbers. the winners of this are the millions of americans who will get a job because we're bringing trillions of dollars overseas back to the united states. we're reducing taxes on businesses. so they can invest in people. and making people more productive. rather than sending the money to washington, d.c.
4:20 am
the biggest winner is the guy who had no job and now makes 30,000 or 40,000 or $50,000 a year. it benefits every american because every single american will see a tax rate reduction. steve: okay, grover, you know everybody in washington, d.c. from your expert analysis, are there democrats who are going to get on board with this? >> there is not a single democrat in the house or the senate who will vote for this bill if their vote matters. now, once we have 51 votes in the senate, there may be three or four democrats who are terrified of losing in the 2018 election. that they would throw a vote. in but they would not be the 50th or 51st vote which means their vote doesn't matter because it's just pretending. there will be no meekful democrat votes for the bill. abby: try going home to constituents and say i didn't support tax reform. that's going to be tough for places in west virginia like joe manchin a very conservative state.

i wanted to do it 15%. if you look at china, china is 15%. other countries are at higher. i mean, we are the highest taxed nation in the world. when i finish the plan, we will be among the lower taxed, which is very good. i would like to be the lowest. you can't be the lowest. there are some that are ridiculous. i want it to be at 15. in fact, i was going to start at 15 and maybe negotiate it up to 20. but the numbers really work at 20. so we are putting n at 20 but we are not going to negotiate. pete: president, the healthcare bill this week went down in the senate. what about this plans make you feel confident it won't meet the same fate. >> the healthcare plan didn't go down. we have the votes but reconciliation is a disaster. as you know it ends on friday. we don't have enough time. we have one senator a yes vote. a great person. he is in the hospital. is he a yes vote. we can't do it by friday. we have the votes. we will do it sometime at the beginning of the year but prior to the election in november. pete: do you still have confidence in mitch mcconnell? >> i do.
4:37 am
i mean, look, i have dealt with mitch for a long time. i think he has to get rid of the filibuster rule. it's a disaster for the republican party because it means you need 60 votes on most pieces of legislation and you are not going to get it there are 270 bills right now sitting before the senate. you are not going to get them approved because you are not going to get 8 democrats. they want to keep this horrible filibuster rule, which says, basically, you need 60. so that means you need 8 democrats to get something approved, and you're not going to get that so they have to get rid of the filibuster rule, otherwise, it's -- they are just making a mistake. but, no, i have confidence in -- look, i really like all of these people. i have think they are terrific people. what i'm going to do is we do have the votes for healthcare, but the filibuster, you know, if you look at what is going on with respect to timing, we have only until friday for reconciliation. we are going into next year. in the meantime, i'm going to start negotiating with democrats and we'll see what happens. pete: do you feel like when you start negotiating with democrats, do you feel like
4:38 am
you can trust chuck schumer and nancy pelosi. >> it's not an issue of trust. phil, i have a nice relationship with them. it's not really trust. if we can do a great healthcare bill bipartisan i'm okay with that. pete, we have the votes to get it done. you can't do it when somebody is in the hospital. you know, when you have 5 votes, and you need 51 it's very hard to get. some cases think want to grand stand. a lot of bad things happen. but we have the votes but we don't have the time because it's friday. i mean, literally friday it ends at a certain time on friday. so we will bring it in to a few months from now. we will vote it it's block grants. it's going to be great healthcare but in the meantime i have that little period of time, i will negotiate with the democrats if we can come up with a fantastic healthcare bill, that's okay for me. good for both parties bipartisan. pete: brian, in the last hour you asked who that senator is hospitalized. thad cochran.
4:39 am
he had a yiewrge logical test or treatment a while back and recovering at his home in mississippi. so not able to be in washington u. brian: i don't understand, pete, they didn't even have 50 votes. so thad cochran could have been running a triathlon. they don't have the numbers in the senate. pete: yeah. i think he is moving on to an issue that he feels like republicans can unite around in the hopes this wins brings the opportunity for another. of course as he has often done talks about the filibuster rule and how that's problematic. abby: also, pete, working with democrats. the classic art of the deal. he said, look, if it comes to getting a deal done we will do what we have to do even if that means getting democrats on board with healthcare and now with tax reform. >> that question came on the heels of the reports that the reports he could be signing an executive order that allows states to -- us to buy healthcare across state lines which has long been a free market aspect how you solve this. a deal coupled with that.
4:40 am
i pressed him on does it have to be repealed? he said it didn't have to be repealed but that's ultimately what he would like to do. brian: nobody thinks it doesn't need to be fixed. steve: what's interesting is if the president is able via executive order buy merck across state lines that is so different than what we heard from the leaders in the republican party. they said that would be in phase ii. the first part was what they were going to vote on this year and then phase ii but it turns out maybe the president with a pen and a phone can do phase ii by himself. pete: too many phases to keep track of for sure. a lot of it sounds like excuses from the swamp when it comes down to it. abby: great work out there. see you next hour. pete: thanks, appreciate it. steve: 19 minutes before the top of the hour. jillian starts with headlines. >> good morning to you guys and to you at home as well. police forced to shoot and kill a murder suspect when he opens fire from feet away. we do want to warn you the video is graphic. >> get your hands up.

here to react is former white house press secretary under george w. bush communications expert fleischer communications if you have a crisis you call ari fleischer. i thought but right away when the president made remarks. this is going to be huge on sunday. if i hire you -- if the nfl hired ari fleischer help them through, this racial injustice, patriotism, wrapping up in the flag, disrespecting the flag, international persona. how do we solve this? >> the nfl has gone through two phases of this. first phase was internal. trying to have unit with the players. that's why you saw the owners lock arms with players amazingly. united the owners with plafers more than anything else. here is the problem for the nfl. they need to diest indicate la. donald trump will win this fight. that's why the nfl has to figure out a way to have fewer players every week to take a to me. otherwise the nfl is going to stay in hot water. brian: they say they have brought the -- donald trump, the president of the united states has brought players and owners together. that's a good thing. the commissioner said i have

4:49 am
brian: union too though. >> union is going to support it like i said 88, 12. there is a bigger group of players who don't want to deal with this issue. they want to play football and also want to respect the flag. that's the fight donald trump is picking. i will say i don't think these players weren't sobs, i wish the president hadn't used those remarks. the president is right about the broad issue. these guys are thoughtful e they are trying to figure things out. i don't like the fact they decided to take a knee. i think it's wrong and disrespectful. they are struggling with something about race and trying to figure tut t. out. they are not sob's. they are struggling. brian: that's what a lot of people started focusing on. not looking at racial injustice looking at the flag. they want you to focus on racial injustice. it feels as though they picked the wrong issue and the man who started it collin kaepernick right now is without a job. >> can't have it both ways can't take advantage of the publicity of the national anthem and no say it's not about the national anthem. >> this one was free next

think the lack of action in washington is the house's fault. listen. >> we passed 337 bills in the house as of this week. >> you have different administration. >> this is more than obama at same tim morehan bush, more than cnton, more than h.w. bush. more bills passed house this year under donald trump at this time than obama and both bushes and clinton. the challenge we have is this chart. 274 of them are still being, are still in the senate. >> what can they do about it? joining us house majority leader kevin mccarthy.
5:26 am
congressman, i don't know if you saw it last night, you feel as though the house is working. the senate isn't it, because they need the 60 for the most part. how do you get through this? >> we continue to do our job in the house. think what we've been able to achieve, number of bills. more so than any modern congress you had in the first year of a new presidency. 16 human trafficking bills. 16 congressional review acts. 14 signed in the law. in history of america only one other congress ever done one of those. reforming va. repealing, replacing obamacare, we moved that out. and other thing that we did, we did all 12 of the appropriation bills. last time a republican majority did that the iphone wasn't invented. brian: gotcha. >> we're doing our work. we need a little help on the other chamber. brian: are you concerned at all when judge moore wins that senate runoff, they say he is more populist than traditional conservative? do you think republicans will be fighting within themselves come, come the midterms in a year?
5:27 am
>> i never get concerned. i celebrate when a republican wins an election. that is exciting. you know, we are a party that can work and move this country forward. look what we just unveiled yesterday. a new tax plan, one that is fairer. let's americans keep more what they en. brings the lowest rate for small business, the lowest it haeen in 80 years. that is what creates new jobs. that is what we have to continue to work on. brian: democrats saying you give way too much to the rich. getting rid of estate tax helps rich households. they don't like the fact you lowered rates for major companies. what is your answer to that? >> first of all, why do want double taxation? talk to christie when she had to do when her father was farmer died in an accident. she had to borrow money to pay for a farm they already had because the american government said they needed to tax them on that? what do you think about lowering and letting america be more competitive? you know the last eight years under barack obama, if you take his very best growth year, that
5:28 am
is actually lower than the worst year under bill clinton. we have got to get america moving again. and that means a tax code that can be competitive. today american companies that are competitive around the world, are tax code forces them to take the money to invest in another country, instead of bringing it back to america and investing here. the most important part, think of all the days you spend trying to fill out your tax code. you will now do your tax return in minutes. because it will be on a postcard. brian: right. >> it is fair, it is simple. it is an american plan. brian: so i understand the house and senate got together with the white house and, this is a unified production. however, where, what is the next step in the process? when people say get this done before december, are they being practical? >> they're being practical, especially in the house. you know, we just spent a retreat yesterday five hours walking through this entire conference. brian: right. >> you heard the president talk to the american people.
5:29 am
and what you're going to find first, the first phase is getting the budget done. i just announced next week we'll move the budget. that is the first phase getting tax reform, that starts the process for reconciliation. ways and means will start taking up the tax bill, move that through the house on to the senate. brn: right. >> i have to give a lot of credit tsideo pre trump. he has brought both houses together. worked out differences. put a tax plan for all of america. brian: i know he feels like he can work with you. however you got to work. you have to stop with the days off on the calendar. your a leader in the house, start putting, you have to start rolling up sleeves and putting in seven-day work weeks, stop days off, don't you agree? you can make that happen. >> if you find, we have more work days? here than average in congress. more bills passed this congress than before. but i agree with you, we need to work as much as we can to get all the work done. i will keep us in long as it

takes to make sure we get taxes done this year. brian: i pride myself as problem solver. i want to do this right now. i want to bring in to my left, the other kevin mccarthy. you have the same name but very different interests and expertise. you're the lawmaker. he is not. the movie guy. it hasn't stopped tweets coming, should be going to you, vice versa. >> i get a lot of people upset with me some of his reviews on some of these movies. we need to sit down, together, review a movie and review the tax code. >> let's do it together. see a few of these tweets, see if we get to the bottom of this. go ahead. >> ie been getting a lot of your tweets, mr. mccarthy. this says, quote, @realdonaldtrump, @real kevin mccarthy tv. 85% of americans wanted obamacare fixed, not replaced. they put at lawrence. i respond to your tweets with
5:31 am
movie reviews. since they said lawrence, give them recommendation of lawrence of arabia. i you mentioned lawrence, i wanted to give you a response to lawrence of arabia. that is what i've been doing. by the way, mr. mccarthy you respond to one of the people that tweeted to but the commentary. they said nothing to be sorry about, but i find everything @kevin mccarthy tv reports to be much more informative than gop leader ever said. you responded with, kevin mccarthy tv has great movie reviews. i appreciate the final thought, kevin. >> if you saw coach calipari's tweet yesterday, he came out to the charity basketball game. there is picture of him sitting on the sidelines. i'm sitting with my good friend kevin mccarthy, explaining why he is not in the game. brian: appreciate it. you can go home now. >> i see you soon. watch a movie at the white house

5:37 am
certainly galvanized on. certainly the president is enthusiastic about tax code, reforming tax code, obamacare, is that really dead. is he willing to work with democrats? is he confident with mitch mcconnell? that is what he had to say. mr. president we're here in indiana. you will launch the tax reform plan in front of this crowd. who is your tax plan intended to help? >> really the working people. we say the working people, middle class, the people have not been treated right, pete, have not been treated right for a long time. also, it is going to be for businesses where they're going to employ jobs, where they bring in jobs. it is for jobs. this is a tax plan for jobs and growth. growth for our country. it will be the largest reduction in terms of dollars of any plan ever in the history of the country. and it is going to be something very special. it is really for the middle income people and it is for the working people and it is for jobs. >> are there any rates or brackets non-negotble? >> the 20% is non-negotiable.
5:38 am
i wanted to do it at 15%. this is for business. if you look at china, china is at 15%. other countries are higher. right now we're highest taxed nation in the world. when i finish the plan, we'll be among the lower taxed which is very good. i would like to be the lowest. you can't be the lowest. some are ridiculous. i wanted to be at 15. in fact i was going to start at 15, maybe negotiate up to 20. but numbers really work at 20. we're putting at 20. we'll not negotiate. >> mr. president, health care bill this week went down in the senate. what about this plan makes you feel confident it won't meet the same fate? >> pete, health care bill it didn't go down. we have the votes but reconciliation is disaster. it end as you know on friday. we don't have enough time. we have one senator a yes vote, great person but he is in the hospital. and he is a yes vote. so we can't do it by friday. so we have the votes. we will do it sometime at the beginning of the year, but prior
5:39 am
to the election in november. >> you still have confidence in mitch mcconnell? >> i do. i have dealt with mitch a long time. i think he has to get rid of the filibuster rule. that is disaster for republican party. that means you need 60 votes on most legislation. you will not get it. there are 270 bills before you get the senate. you will not get them approved. because you need eight democrats. it wants to keep the horrible filibuster read which means you need 60. that means you need 8 democrats to get something approved. you will not get that. they have to get rid of filibuster rule, otherwise they are making a mistake. i have confidence, look, i really like all of thighs people. i think they're terrific people. what i'm going to do, we do have the votes for health care but the filibuster, if you look what is going on with respect to timing, we have only friday until reconciliation. we're going into next year. meantime i will start
5:40 am
negotiating with democrats, we'll see what happens. >> do you feel like, when you start negotiating with democrats do you feel like you can trust chuck schumer panel approximately? >> it is not question of trust. i have a nice relationship. it is not really trust. if we do a great health care bill, bipartisan i'm okay with that. >> even if it is not repeal? >> we have the votes to get it done. you can't do it with somebody in the hospital. when you have 52 votes, and you need 51, it is very hard to get and you always have sebody. ine cases they want to grandstand. a lot of bad things happen. we have the votes but we don't have time because it is friday. it is literally friday it end at a certain time on friday. we'll bring it into a few months from now. we'll vote it. it is block grants. it will be great health care. but meantime i have that little period of time. i will negotiate with the democrats. if we can come up with a fantastic health care bill, that is okay with me. good for both party the. bipartisan. >> as you can see the president generous with mitch mcconnell
5:41 am
at this time. i think ability to get tax reform done will ultimately determine whether or not he continues to have confidence in the majority leader. >> a big headline health care, a lot of people say it is dead. the president is convinced it is not over yet. may not be full repeal, republican or democrat this law need to change. everyone agrees to that. >> he will likely sign an executive order that allows people to buy health insurance across state lines. that is something they wanted for a long time. they can do that, tax reform, go to repeal and replace. he is hopeful momentum will be there by that time. steve: thanks for flying out to indianapolis. abby: come back. i need you for the weekend. nice work out there. steve: thank you, sir. you heard president trump say his new tax plan is for jobs and growth. bob massi why the plan is classy for the american dream coming up next. brian: protected president obama as u.s. secret service agent but this morning dan bongino is here

5:48 am
belief, no real argument, that they're going to take this new money and put it into creating jobs. abby: really, bob? can't you go back recently as reagan years to figure that one out? >> of course. you know, you can't make this up, man. god bless him, you can't make it up. the bottom line, i'm sure if the senator had his own business, oh, no, leave it at 35%, don't reduce it to 20%, because i don't want to make more anyone any and invest it. of course it will trickle down. businesses want to grow. the other thing is this. assume, abby, they don't invest it necessarily in growth of business all the time. you know what they do invest it in? they investn real estate? they put money in 401(k)s. th increase -- they use the money for all kind of reasons but to suggest, more money businesses don't want to grow, it is typical. it is the same old story.
