senior fellow in foreign policy expert, rebecca heinrich, thank you for joining us. let's start with the direct personal addresses to kim jung un. there were a bunch of them, donald trump saying the weapons you are acquiring are not making you safer, putting your regime in great danger, north korea is not a paradise your grandfather envisioned, it is a hell that no person deserves. really tough talk. what is your thought? >> it was exactly right, the right tone, the right message. donald trump has shown a bright spotlight on the nature of the north korean regime, that it is brutal, a dictatorship, a terrible place to be, which is important because kim jung un in north korea is held up as a deity in north korea. trump demystified that saying you are not someone who should be respected, you are not a great man, you have not enabled
your people to flourish. because of this terrible behavior in your regime we won't allow you to threaten and coerce americans or our allies. strong, clear, direct, to send north korea and china because because of its trade, power over the regime. jillian: these countries are significant but china is key. >> 90% of the trade with north korea, china has shown signs it will get on board, a lot of pressure campaign donald trump is leading with partners and allies but so much more to be done and the best thing donald trump can communicate as he visits china is he is committed, if we exhaust all of these diplomatic measures we are
pursuing china does not want war on the korean peninsula so if donald trump can convince the chinese we are serious and willing to use it, if it means the alternative is americans or allies are threatened by this brutal dictatorship. jillian: this trip donald trump is on and what he is saying, what he is expressing, the strong facts he is putting forward how will this impact, with new leadership but how the world views north korea. >> the world is starved for american leadership. the last eight years, demonstrating, donald trump changed that. it has never meant retreat, it is a myth that america first means retreat or the united states won't lead abroad. donald trump is leading, showing stark differences not only in just the interests of the united
states but what we stand for and our belief. that is a great ally to our friend as long as they stand up and our allies do that. he's isolating the north korean regime trying to demonstrate that and succeeding in demonstrating that, responsible, respectable nations of the world standing with the united states, isolate the regime and those who are not, have a choice. jillian: thanks for joining us, we really appreciate that. the state of maine approving medicaid expansion, pushing it through on the first of its kind referendum, 80,000 people will be eligible for free healthcare, joining 31 states and district of columbia in expanding of the obamacare program. university of notre dame giving in to peer pressure from liberals on campus, the campus school will allow brief birth control coverage for students and staff after the aclu

a good thing. too much room for ranting and raving. jillian: what is the deal with ranch dressing and a cake? >> perfect gift for the ranch dressing enthusiasts among us. hidden valley has come up with kegs of ranch dressing you can buy for the holidays. social media talking about this one. this is what washington crossed the delaware for. another tweet, look at this video, ranch it up. i don't know if i need a cake of ranch dressing. dressing is also the best part of the salad. jillian: you can use it for anything. >> a lot of different recipes. jillian: 25 minutes after the hour. top democrats refusing to acknowledge any rift in the democratic party despite a tell-all book from former dnc chairwoman donna rozelle

here debate senior writer brian and democratic strategist omara. let's go talk about virginia first. this was one of the closer races we saw, northairmen is ahead eight or nine points. is that indication of an anti-trump movement in virginia? >> absolutely. nine points without a discussion to the operatives on the ground who thought it would win by three or four points. the big talk of the night is on par to pick up probably the house, we are at 16 seats, seven with the best projection so it indicates democrats are mobilized on the ground and
excited going into the 2018 election. rob: it does seem that way. i don't think people expected virginia to be read in the governor's rates were turned a lot of seats, what happened in virginia last night? >> polls were much closer than it was and i it showed signs democrats are motivated. it was a blue wave from virginia through the rest of the election in the entire country and it shows democrats are motivated, not as splintered as many projected they would be and republicans are nothing to get excited about. gillespie ran a bellicose campaign, republicans in congress running on issues trump didn't campaign for and that is a growing frustration, why should i turn out to vote? republicans have to change their tune before the 2018 election. >> the president made it sound like gillespie didn't support him enough and didn't embrace him enough, he said that gillespie worked hard but did
not embrace me or what i stand for, republicans won four of four how season with economy doing record numbers we will continue to win than before. would he have done better had he embraced the president more? >> he was the most moderate person on the ticket. the lieutenant governor was more pro-trump. could corey stewart, his primary opponent have done better? i don't know. maybe excited the white working class. democrats came out saying we will fight you and we are excited. the money, their vote numbers, volunteer numbers, republicans have to wake up. rob: this is the reason he did as well as he did. >> he dabbled in pro trump rhetoric, he focused on
immigration in dealing with that and focused on dabbling in the confederate statue culture wars after the charlottesville situation. steve bannon said he's closing the enthusiasm gap by rattling around trump and then bannon and the president are this -- distancing themselves. for him he did a bit in the direction of trump, just didn't pull it out successfully against a democrat. rob: phil murphy wins by 13 points in new jersey. do republicans have a prayer with the disaster chris christie turned out to be? >> kim had a heavy weight on her shoulders and the media played into telling voters know point coming out, polls show this. it worked to suppress voters in new jersey.
that was the effect four years ago when they told democrats don't turn out, christie has is in the bag. that is christie's record and the polls and the media pushed to suppress republicans. >> i would not disagree with that. everything i heard about new jersey politics, people were tired of chris christie and that is a heavy motivator and how they cast their vote. rob: thanks for coming on. the alabama senate race coming up republicans need to win that, thank you so much. rob: the dnc let russian hackers steal data as they focus on winning primaries, the latest bombshell in donna brazile's new book. more on that and the high profile person she is blaming for the downfall of the democrats. >> the hits keep coming, getting more interesting by the hour.

everything every day to earn the trust of our voters, leading with our values and building america's it works for everyone. >> if you can't get enough of this donna brazile will speak with tucker carlson at 8:00 eastern. jillian: are having a hard time uniting the party. thank you, we will stay tuned for that interview tonight. 36 minutes after the hour, donald trump shutting down democrat calls for stricter gun control. >> if you feel that is an appropriate question, chicago is a total disaster. >> 8, 7, 6, 5. jillian: chicago is about to see it's 600 homicide this year, steve cortez says these comments hit the nail on the head, he lives there and joins us live next. remember when democrats yelled treason over the shady russian
dossier in don junior's meeting with a moscow lawyer. >> close to the textbook definition of treason. >> moving into perjury, false statements and treason. jillian: the credibility of that dossier took another major hit when we return. ♪ i will keep you ♪ damage your vehicle? we got you covered.

rob: democrats call for gun control in the wake of the texas church massacre donald trump sends a clear message during his trip overseas. >> your bringing up a situation that shouldn't be discussed too much right now, we should let time go by but it is okay if you feel that is an appropriate question, chicago is a disaster, a total disaster. jillian: the city of chicago close to reporting at 600 homicide this year. here to weigh in his fox news
contributor and former trump hispanic advisor and councilmember steve cortez. when you look at the statistics, the primary in chicago is ridiculous, up to 581 shootings through november 52016, 771. the list goes down from there. do you think gun laws will solve this problem? >> no. we are closing in on a grim milestone, 600 murders, sure to hit in chicago. chicago, i say this is a long-term resident, chicago is a great city but it is being ruined and is the encapsulation of failed blue states policies whether it is our failed educational system, fiscal budget nightmare or the most dangerous streets as we are talking about probably in the
developed world in chicago. incredibly strict gun control laws, extremely difficult to legally get a firearm here but that doesn't stop the criminals, it didn't stop the criminal maniac in texas, it doesn't stop people on the west side of chicago who have criminal intent. rob: democrats argue that gun laws in chicago have gotten more lax in recent years. they wanted to keep gun stores out of the city and they are back in. any truth to that? >> there is some truth, they have gone slightly more lax. used to be a complete prohibition on guns. the city didn't loosen up because they wanted to. federal lawsuits protect the second amendment rights of chicagoans so it is possible to get a gun but you have to go through extensive training, extensive background checks. it is very expensive and criminals don't do that. do you think a gangbanger says i will go to class and do this the
right way and get a concealed carry permit? of course they don't. it is laughable to think so but what isn't laughable is what is happening on the streets of chicago and kids can't go to the park to play or worry going to and from school in the morning. this is a city controlled by democrats almost 100%, the last republican mayor was in 1931 so democrats completely control the city council and the mayor role -- almost a century. what is it you are doing that can make chicago better? how do you argue you haven't failed miserably in the city? jillian: is it fair to say chicago is the problem? look at other states with week gun laws specifically wisconsin and indiana. back to the beginning of this segment when a reporter asked donald trump that question, do you think we need better gun vetting is what she said, what is your thought on that? >> a valid point we have states
that are more pro-second amendment. i would not say week gun laws but pro-second amendment gun laws. why isn't indianapolis a shoot out? why is and milwaukee or wisconsin to the degree chicago is? i don't think that is the issue. chicago specific policies more than anything, it is a failure of the educational system and chicago police no, chicago politicians do not have their back and chicago police, when i talk to them they have largely pulled back, they are reactionary. i can't blame -- rob: should people be able to get their hands on semi automatic weapons legally and put bump stocks on those to make a weapon that can killed dozens of people in a matter of minutes before police can get their? >> prohibitions on bump stocks is not part of the second
amendment, that might be reasonable although i fear with 3-d printing somebody with technical skill is going to make an effective bump stock anyway but to make it more difficult i'm fine with. semi automatic, they get a bad rap and because guns look scary or look like they are military grade they are not. semi automatic just means every pool a bullet comes out which is true of a lot of hunting rifles that don't look scary to most people. should semi automatic the legal? they should and didn't texas, that criminal was effectively gun control. he was not legally allowed to get a gun but did anyway. thank goodness those heroic men who intervenes were not gun controls, data semi automatic weapon so they could stop the carnage and keep it from getting worse. jillian: thank you for joining us. rob: he has been a member of the golf club since 1969 but now he is president refused to hang his

melania donald trump and first lady melania having dinner with their chinese counterparts. jillian: traveling with the president, what is on the agenda today? >> reporter: perfect way to put it, high-stakes, the president and first lady make their way to beijing, not just a chance to interact with their counterparts. for the president an opportunity to have high-level meetings with his counterpart president xi jinping, so much to get to and a real offensive happening in beijing from the flag filled welcome at the airport this afternoon to the beauty and pageantry of the forbidden city but as the president and first lady enjoy the operand private dinner, issues are large, the president wants economic concessions to narrow the trade gap, $250 billion and made it clear, he needs xi jinping's
