4:02 am
is meet to me with a president who has decidedly rocky relationship with the previous u.s. administration. talking about the president of the philippines. it has been an eventful time for the president to reduce size 10, 11 days plus as we continue to watch his arrival here in all the other big names as they make their way here. i should point out this comes after the rebels up in vietnam just ahead of course another gathering here another economic summit. this time the association of southeast asian nations and clearly we are talking a great deal about trade, security cooperation and increased economic ties in the region. this gathering is hosted by president duterte of the philippines, outspoken critic previously in particular president obama who you may remember chastise the philippine leader for his human rights record. the country's foreign secretary told me this afternoon in the past doesn't mean there won't be a bright future ahead for the two allies.
4:03 am
>> it's a relationship. relationships are complicated. but you cannot view the relationship. the latorre is tied very strong. cooperation very strong. so if there was a misunderstanding that the previous administration, words that were misinterpreted because of the different culture, it's being repaired now. >> talking about massaging the relationship between these two countries, long-standing nuclear relationship to say the least. not a lot we don't expect to hear from the president, but tomorrow we will hear plenty. for now, back to you. abby: the president right there, live video writhing at the asean summit in manila in the philippines good as you can see meeting with leaders there. what could we expect from the scene about to take place?

4:06 am
first about taking the word of the kgb colonel over that of the american intelligence community. vladimir putin does not have america's interests at heart. did not the president point out he believes in the community. he acknowledges russia will deny it. >> you're exactly right. you also have to remember john mccain's own colleague, senator dianne find kind in california last week was on television saying is the ricci member on the senate judiciary committee has been no coordination between the tram campaign and the russians in any way shape or form. the mainstream narrative, but the bottom line is we are leading the intelligence community to their jobs. what we've seen so far there has been a meddling is spent with a russian spy events from facebook, which faced that should've stopped. abby: a lot going on. tax reform on top of everyone's mind. giving a sense of what they will put forward. several key differences between the two bills.

4:08 am
president comes back and force his hand. griff: we are still seeing these pictures as americans are waking up across the country. is it your sense that he was talking about the press here, taking the president out of context. what is your assessment on the entire take away from this trip? as the press undermined the president's trip in the strides he's made on this trip? >> is not just this trip, but the multiple trips the president has sent overseas, he's been now received glowingly by world leaders in any relationship between the united states and world leaders for the president -- press doesn't want to give him credit for that. the longest -- president of the united states, the relationship is building, putting america first grade we see whether his china, vietnam or others. american industries have the
4:09 am
opportunity to participate in those economies as opposed to been taken advantage of hours that he should be getting amazing amounts of credit for the mainstream media. that doesn't fit their narrative. one sole focus. donald trump now with 100 putin, president of russia said there has to be relationship with derek. with the president has said is both have a relationship with these people that allows us to kill isis and syria and other places. tran do you mention facebook in russian television. his image is stepping back and 80 new mercedes influencers, which are not good in our intelligence community has acknowledged are not good, but you spend a years worth of hysteria saying this is that impacted our election. time to move on. all of this is vladimir putin. hillary clinton had a misspelled reset button. maybe i can get it done. is this a president standing confidently saying i don't care if the world and the price tag. i will put the country first and
4:10 am
work with you. that's exactly what he talked about on the campaign trail, which is putting america first for a change in all this hyperbole, speculation, conjecture and that there is something going on between russia and the united days trying to influence the election. we have 10 or 11 months to look into inlets come to a resolution because it's time to get past the cycle in the forward and if russia did influence the elections let's put places and physicians in place so they never do that again and that includes companies that facebook and others not taking money from overseas trying to influence elections. >> maybe the biggest thing is north korea appeared to move on but to focus on things that we can hopefully impact today that will make a real difference down the road. he was going back and forth with kim jong un. he treated by what he influence -- insult me a call in the old while i would never call him short or. i tried so hard to be his friend and maybe someday that will
4:11 am
happen. 10 days into the trip i believe. do you think the biggest thing that will come out beyond the trade deals being made is the progress on bringing these on bringing those countries not that part of the world together on fighting against north korea? >> that's the most important thing. you have to remember this president has been a counterpuncher. when someone has sent you a worse one in kind. the most important thing for the global economy and global safety is to make sure we control and contain the chaos that will happen in north korea. if we don't have support and south korea and not "mad men" will launch a new layer attack on an unsuspecting nation that will cause massive devastation. what the president is doing is trying to bring the world community together in their region as well as the work of ambassador healy is doing at the united nations to keep economic pressure and political pressure on north korea to make sure they do not have nuclear weapons. that's the single most important
4:12 am
thing the president will be doing on the trip overseas. >> in the actual summit right now, the asean summit in the philippines bingo 10 southeast asian nations. we talked about everyday like north korea and china, is it your sense the president no one is talking about this that he's creating a coalition of southeast asian nations to bring further pressure on china with regard to north korea and in a smaller issue in the south china sea where china has quietly been dominating the waterways that serve as an entire nation ramping up in the military position, the president trying to take a stand there and lift all these nations and possibly getting the respect of these leaders which is not getting the respect here at home. >> i think you're exactly right. the reason is the president is a great negotiator. he can bring the community together collectively to ensure
4:13 am
they are putting pressure on china which in turn will put pressure on north korea, that is a win for the united states that the best way to do that is because inmates at them. as you know he extended his trip one additional day to make sure he's at the summit tomorrow to participate in bilateral discussion. it was a decision he made in this very, very important to the southeast asian community is cohesive on us to go to china have economic pressure allows us to put economic pressure and political pressure on north korea. is that the president is the best of the only way to put a coalition together. pete: kory lewandowski, appreciated. abby: appreciated today. investigation into trend in russia but why does the group on the john podesta's brother now shutting down? prevagen has been shown to improve short-term memory.

4:18 am
indicted. they filed the site as well. these registration not forms that are supposed to tell the public who is working for what foreigners. the manafort filed the forms latecomer he gets indicted. podesta files than late they don't get indicted which raises questions as to maybe there is an inordinate focus on people close to trump wall protecting people close to the operation. pete: and the left side of the screen there you can see the president on his 12 day trip over nation in the philippines. he is at the asean summit taking place in a moment there. live shots there. there's a lot going on. the president has a lot on president has a lot of misplaced overseas but but at home dealing with legislative matters all the while this investigation still going on under moeller. how has that investigation change just in recent weeks with the new revelations coming out about the democrats involvement? >> the problem is that hasn't changed in the sense that even
4:19 am
though the democrats and hillary clinton and the dnc specifically created this dossier that of the building was used to target donald trump, there has been no change in focus. we would know if there's a change in focus. you saw with the manafort investigation command the grand jury is, people's homes could rated in the case of manafort. nothing like that has happened on the democrat side of the issue because frankly you see them investigating the own operation because this dossier by all accounts is still being pursued by mueller and his people. trying to tom, which are effectively saying that if manafort is under investigation and they are not being investigated, we are looking at political targeting. we are looking at a special counsel deciding to look at one side of the aisle and not another. >> he was hired to get donald trump. that was the reason they look at russia collusion in the campaign and the fact that manafort and podesta were not talking about
4:20 am
russia collusion would talk about manafort and podesta. interesting of the two d. only person target is the president's former campaign chairman. who knows what will happen with mr. podesta down the road. i don't know if podesta is guilty, but at this point no one can have confidence in mueller investigation with all the parties in the democratic donors on the investigation and the inordinate focus on the trump operation while protecting hillary can be trusted. pete: as we watch the triply optimistic white on the investigation that's a wise move. focus on facing forward and tax reform and everything else. >> just quickly. you should be contents into the inappropriate use of government resources to target people in the misuse of taxpayer resources not regard. pete: tom payton, thank you. we will continue filing was going on in the philippines.

encapsulated what is going on at the national level in a humorous way. democrats have the best night that we had in five years on tuesday night. we made it teammates in virginia, washington state to regain control of a state legislator. in pennsylvania and new hampshire. i was a weakness when it came to be invested in those races every one. there is a level of truth and not that moving forward with that to be a little bit more focused on talking about policies that matter to democrats and how we can help the american peep hole. that is something that i've long believed and i think you'll see a lot more of that coming forward. griff: i want to get your take and kevin, what do you say for the future? >> well, it was not a great night for republicans, but the reason this is so funny is because there's so much truth to it, the "saturday night live"
4:45 am
skit because it's not just the democratic policy, the personalities bringing down the party. nancy pelosi, chuck schumer, bernie sanders, joe biden. the average age of the face of the democratic party is in their mid-70s and they are all white. they desperately need some new faces. in the midst of people not loving everything trump is doing, they can build a lot of momentum because of the face of their party. griff: the star of this cat obviously, donna brazile, in the news business we know right away what happened in the country amongst the electorate takes a few weeks for us to sort of saturated. what do you think will be the ultimate impact of the donna brazile news? >> the impact will be zero and that was illustrated tuesday night. tuesday night could enact indoors in virginia all weekend and monday and tuesday and not one person asked me about donna brazil's vote-getter obligations it has zero impact moving forward. we are looking forward to 2018. a lot of momentum going into the
4:46 am
new year and i think it has no impact. griff: do you agree with that? no, not at all. the next time there's a presidential primary, and these issues will resurface and the voters will be asking, does their vote count and the democratic primary or is a break from the beginning? say whatever you want about republicans. at the end of the day, the people got to choose what they wanted. the democrat is a top-down leadership they choose the people's votes don't matter and that is going to ring true in 2020 when we start looking at democratic residential nomination process. griff: adrienne, let me ask you, either in a new faces? what about joaquin castro, and a fresh blood in the democrat faces? >> absolutely. we collected even more at the state level asinine as we continue to rebuild the doubt. i want to go back to something you said about what voters care
4:47 am
about. not one voter in any exit poll that came out a virginia top about donna brazile. they talked about health care reform, protecting health care, not repealing it, fixing the escalating cost of health care but not repealing it. that's what people are concerned about where democrats have so much strength going into the midterms. we want to protect obamacare, not repeal it, whereas republicans are focused on trying to eliminate obamacare. griff: let me give you the last word on that. what is your take? >> when the next presidential primary comes up, this'll be an issue. can they trust the dnc to protect the process and honor what the people want. i don't think they can and i think you hit the democrat party in 2020. griff: thank you very much. i was a good discussion and a lot to talk about. that's for sure. alan dershowitz and david bossie and a whole lot more plus a

5:01 am
first. abby: we want to hear from you. griff: now we got to find out how kevin corke -- we have a fox news alert. abby: president trump right now having dinner with world leaders in the phill.ps pete: the commander-in-chief sitting next to philippine leader rodrigo duterte during the last leg of his historic asian trip at the asean trip. griff: kevin is with us live. >> hey, guys, before i get to asean, listen, the only way to eat pizza is fold it, period. if you don't fold the pizza, you're just not eating it the right way. listen, this is an important opportunity for president trump. clearly he wants to come here and talk about a number of major issues for the region, right? he's got to talk about economic cooperation, security cooperation, trade, and, yes, that problem up there, north korea. this is, after all, the fifth of five countries that he is visiting here in his asian store going from one economic summit to another, from apec over in vietnam, now this is asean.
5:02 am
this is also an important opportunity for him to meet with a leader that, for lack of a better description, hasn't had the greatest relationship with the united states, certainly not the last administration. of course we're talking about, as you pointed out, president duterte looking forward to his opportunity to chat with president trump here at asean. the president coming here after much discussed comments on russian meddling and he's looking to leave all that stuff in the rearview mirror. so this time he's here for the gathering of the association of southeast asian nations, again trade security, cooperation, et cetera. this hosted by president duterte who is an outspoken contradict of the u.s., in particular president obama. you may remember he really sort of chastised him about his human rights record, and that really ruffled feathers here but philippine officials are confident that the trump administration will be able to bring a renewed spirit to the conversation between the longtime allies. >> i think the impact will be on the positive side because president trump has much more
5:03 am
empathy. he has the same threshold and holds human rights as high as any other u.s. president. he might not -- just like president duterte, they might not say it in that matter, but it doesn't mean that we aren't strong supporters of human rights. >> very interesting conversation there with the foreign minister. don't forget this evening's festivities are pretty much the capstone for the day. the big meetings really all begin tomorrow, but that doesn't mean there won't be festivities. and in case you're wondering, no i did not get one of those cool shirts. [laughter] abby: they look really comfortable, i got to say, kevin a pizza folding could i guy. thank you so much. and just to be clear, they were doing the toasts there. president trump doesn't drink. pete: yeah. abby: so it's been reported -- and you can clarify this, kevin, quickly, it's diet coke that he's drinking when he cheers?
5:04 am
>> absolutely right. he is not a drinker. in fact he's been very vocal about the fact that his brother had a problem with drinking and so the president has never, ever ever touched alcohol, so when you see him raising a glass, it's diet coke. pete: it's diet coke. >> it may be pepsi. abby: good point. thank you, kevin. pete: obviously this part of the trip, there's still more to come come. i think it's on day 10 of 13 but so much of the focus on other networks and elsewhere will be on the exchange and the things president trump has said about his meeting with vladimir putin. of great consequence to real substantive issues like north korea and china and isis and syria, but the media will want to focus on what happened a year ago an election and whether or not there was collusion and meddling and of course those questions were brought to the president yesterday. he said this to the media which is sparking a big conversation today. listen to president trump. >> i believe that he feels that he and russia did not meddle in the election. as to whether i believe it or not, i'm with our agencies,
5:05 am
especially as currently constituted with their leadership. i believe in our intel agencies, our intelligence agencies, i've worked with them very strongly. there aren't 17 as was previously reported. there were actually four. but they were saying there was 17. there were actually four. so i'm not looking to stand and start arguing with somebody when there's reporters all around and cameras recording and seeing our conversation. i think it was very obvious to everybody, i believe that president putin really feels, and he feels strongly, that he did not meddle in our election. what he believes is what he believes. what i believe is that we have to get to work, and i think everybody understood this that heard the answer, we have to get to work to solve syria, to solve north korea, to solve ukraine, to solve terrorism. hillary clinton had the reset button. she wanted to get back together with russia. she even spelled "reset" wrong. that's how it started and then it got worse.
5:06 am
president obama wanted to get along with russia, but the chemistry wasn't there. getting along with other nations is a good thing, not a bad thing believe me. umph, now, we need to just do a quick explanation for our viewers to get some context meaning the president was in his gaggle, there were no cameras there and he was asked about his meeting with putin and he said he believes he means what he says, the press reporting then that he believes that vladimir putin on no meddling but it was taken out of context as he felt compelled to clarify which he said i believe putin believes that but what we need to do is move on and our chief white house correspondent john roberts made it very clear it was a case of the press taking out of context and not listening to the president's inflection when he was speaking. abby: right. john roberts who's overseas on the strip was tweeting yesterday saying how frustrated he was to see the coverage back at home and how it wasn't honest, it wasn't accurate because what many were saying yesterday after this happened was that president
5:07 am
trump didn't believe there was meddling in the election which he's now come out and said i stand with our intelligence community which have come out and said russia did try to meddle in the election so it's so important here to get the facts right. griff: it's very important, remember, as a journalist, as a reporter, it's long hours, very difficult. in the case of the pictures you're seeing this morning, it's host tv in the philippines, china, it's the press run by the governments of these countries and so you have to work double time on zero sleep to try and get it right. and in this case his own colleagues who should be working double time to help each other get it right. pete: not yet it right. but a shocker, they don't care about getting it right for most -- i'm not talking about our own john roberts. i'm talking about so much of the fake news media that wants to spin it no matter what. the president put a bow on his argument tweeting this, saying " "when will all the haters and fools out there realize that having a good relationship with russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. they're always playing politics politics," meaning the haters and the fools, "bad for our country. i want to solve north korea,
5:08 am
syria, ukraine, terrorism, and russia can help greatly." from the president's perspective he's been called illegitimate since election day, they call it collusion and meddling. first of all, he's trolling the press with his willingness to talk to vladimir putin. he also says you can talk about meddling, but there was no collusion, so don't try to discredit me. a few of a ads and russian television here that no one watches somehow we spend a year of hysteria on influencing our elections, there's no proof that it changed a single vote per se yet this dominates my presidency and whether i can talk to vladimir putin? i support my intel agencies, but i don't support witch hunt hysteria to discredit me so i'm not going to let that change how i view vladimir putin and the potential to move on and establish a relationship that the obama administration was never able to establish despite, you know, trying everything they could to be friends with vlad. abby: here's the problem, griff, i see when you do misconstrue
5:09 am
the facts, this becomes the headline, this becomes the story about a trip that has become so much more. we can talk about meddling and russian involvement, whether or not putin says what he says, but there's so much to talk about, as the president is saying, whether it is north korea and whether it is syria. corey lewandowski who we had on last hour said it's so important we have the president in this part of the world because we need their help when it comes to the most important thing we deal with today, when it comes to north korea. >> he has been received growing growingly by world leaders, it's a new relationship between the president and his world leaders. he should be getting amazing support from the mainstream media, but that doesn't fit the narrative. there's one focus: president trump, the united states, vladimir putin, the president of russia, there has to be a relationship there that's detrimental. what the president has said, let's have a relationship with these people that allows us to kill isis in syria and in other places. all this hyperbole, all the speculation, all the con coninjection in the mainstream media that there was something
5:10 am
going on in russia to influence the election, if that's happen, we have had 10 or 11 months to look into it, and let's come to a resolution, it's time to get past the 2016 election cycle and move forward. pete: most any on her president would have caved from the amount of pressure from the mainstream media and democrats and never trumpers, instead he stands up and says i'm going to do what i think is right. we didn't collude, nothing happened, we can move past that here at home. griff: remember, he knows he's the best messenger for his own mess.ge abby: most of the time. griff: -- any time he sees -- well, i mean, look, he has a voice. his voice and twitter -- abby: he's using the 280 characters, by the way, i've noticed. griff: the twitter he put out to getting a lot of play we haven't mentioned yet is the one on north korea. here's a tweet: why would kim jong-un insult me by calling me old when i would never call him short and fat? oh, well, i try so hard to be his friend and maybe someday
5:11 am
that will happen." obviously the president's sense of humor, but using yet again in front of this 10 nation bloc like, don't forget, i'm in charge of, i'm going to be tough and you're going to get behind me and we're going to put pressure on this threat to not only that part of the region, but the entire world. abby: but also times change. you think about where we are going to be in 40, 50 years and what is happening right now on this trip is going to impact that so much. he was in vietnam yesterday. think about our relationship with vietnam back then and how much -- griff: we rebuilt the country we were at war with, and you're right. china has a chinese ring. if we don't build those kind of alliances actively, which we're doing right now, not fake tpp trade alliances that strip away our sovereignty and don't actually help us but real forged alliances, then we will see a pacific dominated by the chinese which won't be friendly to freedom, which won't be friendly to trade -- abby: you know what that means for north korea, too, a disaste. pete: exactly. a lot of consequence here.

♪ griff: president trump's tax plan could get more money in your pockets with tax cuts. here to break down it is numbers is cpa daniel geltrude. let me start with these brackets brackets. let's look at what we currently have and what's going to happen under president trump's tax plan plan. this is $75,000 salary, single, childless taxpayer. tell me about the numbers. >> okay. so when we look at this currently, we would owe almost $12,000. what's important to point out
5:18 am
here is this is for someone that is not itemizing their deductions. we have to be able to compare apples and apples so when we do that we see that the trump tax plan is going to increase a tax savings here by a little over $2,000. why is that happening? it's happening because of an increase in child care credit as well as the family care credit. griff: let me look at the family under 75,000. what's the difference and why? >> what you have here is you need to keep in mind that the single person is actually paying more tax. this is simply about what the refund and the savings is going to be. when we look at the same family here, family of four, less tax to the tune of $1700. griff: let's look at at someone making $175,000, no family, savings quite significant. >> yes, it is significant. let's look at it this way.
5:19 am
they are paying in much more than the last screen that we looked at. their taxes are higher. they're just getting a greater savings. the concept always is, the more you pay, when the taxes come down, you get more back. griff: and so if you make the same amount, 175,000, and you have a family, two children, under 17, you're not getting as much. >> is no you're not getting as much but this only tells part of the picture. this is only about the savings, not the total tax paid. so this could be a little deceiving and some people have really made quite an issue of this, but it still comes down to significant savings for middle-class people. griff: one of the criticisms from democrats is that those making on the lower end of the economic scale not making anything, here is a single guy making or gal making 25,000 salary, explain they see numbers numbers. the savings are slim. >> the savings are slim because again they're not paying that much in taxes. proportionately, it may not be necessarily that much less. it's just in the absolute dollar amount it is less.
5:20 am
griff: let's look at try to make it with a family and you are pressed for every nickel and dime, and this isn't good news. >> it's not goons, but again it doesn't tell the whole picture. let me tell you why. when you're looking at a household, family of four, $25,000 of household income, they're paying no tax. all this means is they're getting a $72 less refund credit back from the government, but they are paying no tax whatsoever. griff: so is it your sense, then that as the message is going to be democrats say it's terrible, it's refund for the rich, the republicans say it's the best thing to happen in 31 years. what say you, dan? >> i say the middle class is getting a tax cut here. the numbers can appear deceiving but from everything i looked at, it's absolute, they're going to save money. griff: daniel geltrude, thanks for walking through the numbers with us. president's critics complain

5:26 am
who believe in judicial restraint, applying the law objectively, following pinto precedent, the impact won't be as great as if he picks a mirror image of what he complained about with obama and others. if he picks right wing judicial activists who are ideologues and who try to impose their view of society on the rest of the country, they will then he will have a big impact, but there will be a lot of complaints about it, so it really depends on the nature of the conservatives that he puts on the court. so far, i think he's had a mixed picture. some of them have been people who are serious academics who come from the federalist society who would be like justice scalia but some of them look like they're they're judicial ideologues. griff: so should we look at the president with picking gorsuch? >> well, neil gorsuch is a very distinguished judge, former student at harvard law school who believes in judicial restraint when was a law clerk for one of the most
5:27 am
distinguished justices. if he picks everybody like gorsuch, i don't think that the change will be as dramatic as if he picks, you know, the mirror image of people he complained about on the left. so i hope he doesn't do that, and i suspect he won't do that. griff: professor, president obama packed the courts with sunk ideologues, social justice activists and others who see the constitution as a living document. is the best check against that to reassert the rule of law, is it to do the mirror image or is it to find, folks, who have a fidelity to the constitution, understand the limited role it should play and that law should be made by the legislature? how do you fight back against what the obama administration did most effectively? >> i think you're absolutely right, the most effective way of fighting back is not to pick mirror image people the other way. that just turns it into a political fight and, you know, one party is going to win another time, another party is going to win another time, and
5:28 am
the judiciary is going to swing like a wide pendulum. but if the president picks people who care deeply about original meaning, about applying the law fairly, about not allowing their personal views to enter into decision-making, then i think we could begin to move the judiciary back toward the center where it belo.gs abby: that really could be the biggest part of your legacy. i talked to more voters before this past election, they said the biggest issue to me is the supreme court and whoever wins will put in these positions. and we've seen with president trump already as you said the lasting power that it could have to put young people specifically in these positions. >> yeah. of course the supreme court right now has no vacancies. there are at least three justices who are at an age where they might leave the court for one reason or another. and when that happens, i think the high drama will come into effect. pete: my goodness, the high drama will come. >> remember, they have to follow supreme court presid.nt pete: it will come when the balance of the supreme court is truly at issue, as you say. professor alan dershowitz, that's it. griff: thank you, professor.

years tried and failed to have a better relationship with russia russia." and now the democrats are, in my opinion, in a dangerous place. they have continued, they have continued for a year to attack this president's relationship or potential relationship with putin over these ridiculous collusion claim of the campaign, and this is going to pay consequences down the road, and this president is just trying to get that behind the american people. pete: wait a minute, david. let me just press you a little bit. and that is what the president is saying he wants to move on to north korea, isn't the real determination of whether this trip was truly successful or not is whether or not he's able to bring pressure on north korea from both china and from vladimir putin and russia? >> it is vital for the american people, it's vital for the world that we get a resolution to de denuclearize north korea. it is in everybody's best interests, including the chinese and including the russians.
5:36 am
and that is what the president was putting on the table, that we can build these relationships going forward, not living in the past. what is the president supposed to do with putin? is he supposed never speak to him again? do the democrats want to cut off all relations, all conversations all, you know, diplomatically with russia? what is their position? it is a ridiculous position. the president wants to move forward to solve syria, to solve north korea, to solve the iranian problem. we have problems all across the world that he inherited from a weak foreign policy of barack obama. and this president is trying to fix those one day at a t.me abby: well, and no doubt there are challenges here at home too. he is i believe watching very closely what's going on with tax reform. tomorrow the house and senate are supposed to meet to mark up the tax reform bill. he is hoping that it gets to his desk sometime during the holidays, maybe christmas. yet critics say the middle class it's only going to be bad for them.
5:37 am
you also have conservatives saying wait, now that we see what the senate's putting forward, we're not happy about that, including the business tax not until 2019 will it go down, something the president said is a red line for him. at what point does he say i'm not standing for this plan? >> i think we're going to see that later this week. i think the president will get back from his foreign trip and get a look at what the house and senate are doing. he has been very clear that he wants tax reform done this year, tax cuts for all americans, not just some, all americans, tax rates are fundamentally too high and they need to come down for all americans. and, two, the corporate tax rate has to be done this year or at the beginning of next year, has to take place january 1st. that can't be off into the future. our economy is waiting for this infusion, and it needs it desperately right now. griff: anybody that knows you, david, knows you've never been an establishment type, always a
5:38 am
risk taker, bomb thrower, let's go for it. no, you should take that as a compliment. >> i.do pete: is this good enough, is this tax bill, is it simple enough, is it cutting taxes enough? 'cause you're hear from conservatives saying this isn't the tax cut for every american, per se. >> look, i'm with you. i don't -- that's why i'm waiting for the president to get back to see exactly where we are are. i hear things out of the house. i hear things out of the senate. neither of those places, neither of those bodies are what i would call giving us a reaganesque tax cut. this -- i look back at ronald reagan's tax cut, and that's what we should really be trying to do here, bring taxes down on all americans. the burden is too much. a smaller, more efficient government, lower spending and lower taxes for all. that's what ronald reagan stood for as a governing philosophy. that's what this tax bill needs to make sure it's anchored in. griff: david, real quick because i want you on the record saying
5:39 am
this, we've seen steve bannon saying ditch mitch, we've seen conservatives say ditch mitch. what do you say? does the president come back and go to war with mitch mcconnell over this? >> i think, look, those are two completely different things, griff. what you have is the president needs to work inside the house and in the senate to get tax reform done for the american people, and he is committed to doing that, and he wants it done this year so our economy can take off. look, you look at the economic numbers, growth at 3%. the obama administration literally would have given a limb for 3% growth. it is that -- it is that -- griff: i got that part. but the new york times headline yesterday that was mitch mcconnell has a messaging problem in that he's dropping the ball, if you will, to get this done. the president's made it clear he wants something done. will we see the president come back and put pressure as he has in the past on health care, put pressure on mitch mcconnell over the messaging? >> i think he's going to put pressure on the entire u.s.
5:40 am
senate. all the republicans, including the leadership, and all the democrats, putting them on notice that he is going to be campaigning next year in the midterm election against the senate democrats if they do not come on board. i think if we get our 52 together, our 52 republicans, we're going to see democrats come on board, and it will become a bipartisan bill overnight, even though the democrats do not want this bill, they don't want tax reform for the american people. abby: well, he has certainly put pressure on members of his own cabinet, so i have no doubt he will come back if he needs to and put pressure where it is needed. david bossie, good to have you. pete: if democrats come on board david bossie, you are quite the prophet. we shall see. >> christmas carols. think christmas carols. abby: going now to other headlines i want to bring you this morning, chelsea manning taking a shot at lawmakers on veterans day. the convicted leaker posting this on line saying "want to support veterans? stop sending us overseas to kill or be killed for your nationalist fairy tales.

6:04 am
emphasized heavily on the front end of the trip trade and imbalances we've seen and so much of this abbey you pointed this out is a check against china. it's a recognition that without alliances in that region, you've got chinese dream and a future that seeks regional dominance and wants to control those shipping lanes and military dominance if we don't do a real asia pivot we could be behind the curve quickly. >> abby: way to say quickly he's found a really good balance watching this from afar of showing our strength and america first but also, extending the olive branch as you said to our allies over there and to places like china that have been needed this has needed to happen for a very long time. >> griff: he's also continuing to own his message. here is what the president had to say when he was clarifying some of his remarks as it relates to other issues. >> president trump: i believe that he feels that he and russia did not medal in the election. as to whether i believe it or not, i'm with our agencies especially as currently constituted with their leadership. i believe in our intel agencies,
6:05 am
our intelligence agencies. i've worked with them very strongly. there weren't 17 as was previously reported. there were actually four, but they were saying there was 17 and there were actually four so i'm not looking to stand and start arguing with somebody when this reporters all around and cameras recording and seeing our conversation. i think it was very obvious to everybody. i believe that president putin really feels and he feels strong ly that he did not medal in our election. what he believes is what he believes. what i believe is that we have to get to work and i think everybody understood this that heard the answer. we have to get to work to solve syria, to solve north korea, to solve ukraine, to solve terrorism. hillary clinton had the reset button. she wanted to get back together with russia. she even spelled reset wrong. that's how it started and then it got worse. president obama wanted to get along with russia but the chemistry wasn't there.
6:06 am
getting along with other nations is a good thing. not a bad thing believe me. >> griff: so what our viewers need to understand is what he was doing there was clarifying his conversation with vladimir putin, the press pete as you say doesn't give the president a fair shake so there were no cameras and he said well i believe putin believes what he believes but i believe the russians medalled in our election and they took that to mean that trump says putin did not medal and so he is saying look, let me give it to you straight since you weren't paying attention the first time. >> pete: the word russia is cat nip that this fake news media can still not avoid. we watch other networks so that you don't have to and in watching other networks, they didn't cover this foreign trip as much as others because it was substance. then, the topic turns to russia and it's like wow the wall. before that they want to be talking about a certain alabama senator and now it's russia and they want to talk about anything that makes republicans or this president look bad and in the tweet that president put out
6:07 am
yesterday, i think sums up the way he views how people look at him and his relationship with vladimir putin. the president tweeted when will all the haters and fools out there realize having a good relationship with russia is a good thing not a bad thing. they're always playing politics meaning the haters and the fools , bad for our country i want to solve north korea, syria , ukraine, terrorism and russia can help greatly. he's maintained from the beginning no collusion, medaling may be fine if russia believes that and our communities have found that, doesn't mean we colluded now maybe it is time to work with the russians on a few things because they are definitely not our friends. >> abby: but here is what's dangerous about the coverage here at home and our own john roberts will talk about this who takes his job very seriously and is one of the best at his jobs. he said watching the coverage at home because he's over on this trip, basically it's frustrating because when you don't get it right, people are mislead and then they're quickly jumping to those conclusions as you were saying, pete and they love that because if it's a narrative that you're wanting and something that is not about the trip and
6:08 am
not about what's actually being done over there and it's something that we can be distracted by it's a good headline, but exactly. >> griff: as he should because this is members of the press taken out of context, something the president said that has to do with very serious things. very serious implications. he didn't missspeak or be misquoted about what he had for dinner over there or what shirt as you keep pointing out. >> pete: too much food. >> griff: we are talking about this russian story and ultimate ly talking as the president said he wants to move on putting pressure on north korea which is the ultimate goal of this. >> abby: and by the way he continues to say i stand with our national intelligence community which has said over and over again that the russians have tried to medal in our life and that will continue to be a problem but president trump is saying let's put that aside here that's an issue but let's focus on what i'm here to do. let's move forward on north korea. >> pete: why all the thousands of dollars of facebook ads on russian television, that's bs, this is substance, one of the
6:09 am
things we need russia's help on as you mentioned is north korea and there's a back and forth between our countries. president trump as he often does taking a new angle on tough problems, whether it was rocket man, now it's another comedic angle. he tweeted yesterday why would kim jong-un insult me by calling me old which he did through state propaganda when i'd never call him short and fat. oh, well i try so hard to be his friend and maybe some day that will happen. i don't think he truly wants to be his friend. i think he recognizes he prefers to solve this peacefully while the regime continues to insist in a different route. >> griff: although this is really the best thing the president could have done because as we talked at the very end he's trying with this 10 block southeast asian group who wants to do trade and that's a big part of it but also they want to get their support to put pressure on china. it's really north korea so instead of letting that story come out of what comes out of these meetings people are talking about this tweet i don't know. >> abby: we should be talking about the deals that have been made over there including the
6:10 am
trade deals. we talked about this morning $250 billion worth of deals right? this is what he hoped to get done on this trip and that's what ultimately will impact this country and the diplomacy for years and years to come. time will tell if chain ends up following through with any of this. >> pete: what we know is the last three or four administrations haven't done anything effective on north korea so maybe it's time for a new change and if it takes a couple tweets who knows so we had social media stars trump supporters we asked them about this very topic of north korea and they had a great take. listen. >> he's short, he's fat and ignorant and if he don't get himself together, north korea is going to be not korea okay? we're not going to play with them so let me tell you how the president operates. you fought back at him he will throw one back at you but we do have the capability of getting along with this country, but this country got to play fair and you can't be shooting missiles and trying to kill our
6:11 am
people. >> pete: i know members of the bush administration to hear a tweet like that and a response like that it makes their heads explode and god bless a lot of the folks in the bush administration . they didn't prevent north korea from getting a nuclear bomb. neither deirdre bolton o. try something new and force something to happen. >> abby: listen to diamond and silk with their opinions don't they? >> griff: give them a job. >> abby: i want to bring other headlines we're following close a stairwell collapses at an indoor gym injuring 21 kids and two adults officials saying multiple children ran on to the wooden platform 10 feet above the ground when it fell through injuring them and people below. four kids are being treated for major injuries. authorities trying to figure out what caused that to collapse at the gym in san diego. and disneyland shutting down cooling towers that had high levels of bacteria following an outbreak. health officials in orange county say 12 cases of the bacteria caused illness where they were found about three weeks ago among people spending time in anaheim. nine of the cases were from
6:12 am
people visiting the theme park. one patient in anaheim but not disneyland had additional health issues and unfortunately died. and have you ever felt a handful of coins out of a public fountain? pete? [laughter] >> pete: no comment. >> abby: that's what the city of rome is thinking they are apparently so strapped for cash officials passed a measure to fish out all of the coins in the famous fountain. they can add up to more than a million bucks a year which can obviously go towards other projects. >> griff: aren't you stealing people's dreams too or wishes? >> abby: i actually put a coin in there a couple years ago. >> griff: did you make-a-wish? >> abby: i did i hope it's still there. >> pete: did it come true? >> abby: well i can't share i can't share my wish. i didn't do it just on the italian government. >> griff: well we have a very special guest coming up while all eyes are on president trump and the philippines congress is busy working on a historic tax reform and we'll get a status report from house majority steve

6:17 am
country. we passed our bill out of committee on thursday, so chairman kevin brady in the ways and means committee did a great job of bringing a bill out of committee that will cut taxes in every different income sector. what we're doing is focusing on getting the economy moving again , making our country competitive. look we've seen so many jobs ten s of thousands of jobs leave america because we have the highest corporate tax rate in the industrialized world. we're reducing all those taxes so that we can bring those jobs back and rebuild our middle class. >> pete: congressman as we saw with healthcare reform repeal of obamacare the house was better on it able to pass it and do something about it. if the senate does pass something and it goes to conference what are the red lines for you, what are the biggest things is it number of tax brackets, rates staying low, kicking in immediately? where do you not want to give to make sure real tax reform is actually delivered? >> steve: well the main things that we've been working with president trump on is a tax cut plan that actually helps rebuild our middle class, bring jobs
6:18 am
back, make us competitive. all of the things that we did in our house bill and frankly a lot of those components are in the senate bill as well. they've got a few differences but in the end i think what you're going to see is the house pass a bill, we're going to whip that bill monday night so we'll know where all of our house republicans are and work to make sure that we bring everybody on board so that we could pass the bill hopefully by the end of the week and then let the senate go do their job. they've got to produce a bill as well and if there are difference s which i'm sure there are, we're going to work those out but again, you've got to make sure that the middle class is going to benefit dramatically from this tax cut which our bill does and that we make our country competitive again to bring those tens of thousands of good, high paying jobs back and oh, by the way we simplify the code so much in our bill that over 90% of americans can actually do their taxes on a postcard, just think about how simple that's going to be. >> abby: i do want to ask though how important the president's role is in all this because when he talks about tax reform you'll see him light up in a way that you don't see on anything else
6:19 am
even healthcare. how involved has he been and how important is it for when he gets home to put pressure on certain individuals to get tax reform to where it needs to be where it ultimately helps the american people the most? >> steve: president trump has been incredibly helpful from the very beginning and look, he is passionate about getting the economy moving again and rebuilding the middle class, really pushing those tax cuts to middle and lower income families and that's what we did in our bill working closely with the white house, so i think you'll see a president very engaged and he understands that the best thing we can do to get our economy moving again is to pass this tax cut and jobs bill. so he's been really involved in it because he knows how it's going to help the economy. it's going to create jobs and help all those families that have been struggling for the last eight years who want to see wage growth that will happen under our bill. >> griff: congressman real quick where are the numbers? you're the whip how is this vote looking and are you going to get any democrats to support this?

>> steve: you know democrats should vote for this bill because it cuts taxes across-the-board. it helps rebuild middle class. unfortunately, you see them opposing these tax cuts because really all they're for is for more taxes and growing the federal government but it's crushed our economy. let's go a different route and actually create a job. >> pete: how about the freedom caucus are they on board? >> steve: we've been working really well with them and most of the members of the freedom caucus that we talk to are supportive of this bill as are most members of our conference. obviously there's folks we will talk to this week that will get there. >> griff: good luke we'll see what the week brings. >> abby: good to see you back. great to have you. >> great to be back what an exciting time it is. >> pete: thank you, sir. >> griff: coming up dan bongino is going to join us live. >> pete: nfl players protested our national anthem for months and now fans are saying enough is enough. our next guest a double amputee

6:26 am
member, a spouse or a child, anybody that's ever seen that it's the most beautiful flag i've ever seen. anybody that's ever seen that cascade over a casket of a friend they know that that's not the time and place to go out there and have this kind of protest. it's just not the right time and i could use a lot of really harsh words to say how much this really piss me off. >> abby: i have no doubt. you have an op ed out you address invisible injuries of war. if we can read a quote from this i want to give people a sense of what you wrote. you say many scars of our nations wounded warriors are not visible far too often my peers are haunted in silence without the same support of a grateful nation encouraging them through struggle we must do more to support these men and women and of course, congressman, this is coming from someone i spent the day with you on capitol hill. your injuries are quite visible but it's a great point. many of them you can't see. >> congressman: my injuries are easy. people look at me and they say okay this guy is missing two legs he needs a cane, maybe
6:27 am
needs to grab my shoulder maybe needs a hand rail. that's easy to identify the assistance that i need for so many of my friends people that spent time on the battlefield. you can't see what it is the pain that they have inside of them. you can't see what it is they want that they need so when you think about veterans day that's the time to recognize what their commitment was, they went out there. they were willing to be targeted by snipers and willing to walk across land mines and willing to fly across enemy lines even though they might get shot down. these were amazing people, recognize that sacrifice but get to know them actually more than just saying thank you for your service. really, you know tugs their heart and find a way to build a relationship. >> griff: congressman thank you for your service. let's go back to where this all began that is san francisco quarterback colin kaepernick started the kneeling movement. is it your sense that if colin kaepernick would just go to walter reed medical center in washington or overseas where our
6:28 am
troops are and see what they face he would change his mind and heart? >> congressman: i wouldn't say that he's in any danger of changing his mind or his heart. i don't know him personally but i think if he wanted to undertake a true way to be an activist you could look at somebody that's been an nfl activist. that was somebody that served this country, pat tillman, an nfl activist that went out and joined the 75th ranger reggie meant and he gave his life for this country that's what it looks like to be an activist coming out of the nfl. there was a time during world war ii when professional athlete s left what they were doing and served their country. that's patriotism. that's what i want to see out of players not this protesting during the most important moment of the entire game when everybody comes together to put their hand over their heart or render a hand salute and respect our american flag. >> pete: such a good point. actually the most important part of the game is when we do coming to in opposing jerseys and salute that flag. it's amazing we turned a uniting
6:29 am
symbol into a dividing one by turning it into a protest so well said this morning thanks for all you fight for over there >> congressman: thank you. >> abby: so good to see you brian mast. >> pete: great guy. also another great guy whose always fired up dan bongino is here live next. >> abby: plus a 20 year old traveling the country on a mission to interview all world war ii combat veterans, hear their stories of heroism. we'll hear from him and a 99 year old vet who pete is going to speak to that's coming up on the show. great story. ♪ god bless the usa my dad's. grandma's. aunt stacy's.

6:34 am
get some bipartisan humor for once you know guys, i mean listen how tired are we all getting as conservatives,lier dariens and good republicans of turning on late night tv, snl, and of course we have to get used to the left wing media all the time as well and just getting beaten up all the time. the cma awards they did a little bit of ripping on both sides and we're not humorless as conservatives. if it's done and not malicious that's okay i'm good with that. the problem is it's always one- sided. >> abby: but dan there's so much to work with the democrats. there's stuff to work with on both sides of the aisle but to your point the fact there's so much of a focus on the gop and yet how funny they can be when they do focus on democrats for a while. >> dan: abbey, hillary clinton alone is like a 700 page walking comedy guide. i mean, do you know how much material the clintons could provide? snl would have 300% ratings growth if they focus on only
6:35 am
hillary. there's so much good content there given all their screw ups, but they're just obsessed a lot of these media types with bash ing conservatives and it's really bad business too as we seen by collapsing box office receipts in hollywood. >> griff: dan clearly the takeaway from the elections this past week particularly in virginia was that snl now can pick on democrats. >> dan: yeah, listen virginia was rough. i mean let's not try to put lip stick on a pig here as conservatives and republicans. we got beaten up bad but here is what i'm worried about. i'm a little bit more worried about what happened in georgia where a definitely a pretty blood red state where we lost two house districts at the state level that were republican lean ing districts and here is my message to the gop, man. get off your collective, we don't have a buzzer on this show so we've leave that word out but you get where i'm going with this. get off your butts, man. you've got to do something. you know democrat anger, they're , democrats are angry ordinarily.
6:36 am
they play identity politics so they're always angry and just a base level of anger. now they're super angry because they hate donald trump and they're motivated to go out and vote. the only thing only thing that is with democratic anger are results. you have to do something. you've done nothing. outside of trump changing the judiciary and getting a good supreme and appellate court judges we have nothing else to show for it. you better get tax cuts through or it's a blood bath in the midterms. >> pete: quick topic for you we just pulled sound from another network where the former cia director had comments about the president's come to of course president has been asked about collaboration, collusion, and medaling with russia as he's been on this trip in asia, meeting with vladimir putin the media going on a frenzy about that and the president critical of some members of the intelligence community on how they handle this. this is director brennon replying to president trump minutes ago. >> but i think what by not confronting the issue directly
6:37 am
and not acknowledging to putin that we know that your responsible for this i think he's giving putin a pass and i think it demonstrates to mr. putin that donald trump can be played by foreign leaders who are going to appeal to his ego and to try to play upon his insecurities which is very very worrysome from a national security standpoint. >> pete: so is the president being played? >> no, john brennan went up to capitol hill and he lied. he basically said when asked about being if americans were being spied upon, he gave the wrong answer on capitol hill. you know, i remember working with john brennan as a secret service guy and i remember him one-time looking at his phone for a google alert for his name so it's like okay i'm in a conservative content but i thought it withs a little weird. this guy is an ego maniac. he's aching for some sunday morning tv appearances and he's not credible at all. is trump getting played by the
6:38 am
russians? how exactly by wiping out isis and taking them on in syria? i mean how is he getting wiped out by not repealing? trump has done a pretty good job against the russians and i think he's doing his best effort right now to try to repair a really broken relationship. listen guys it doesn't do us any good to keep a perpetual enemy. they are our geo-political folk we get it. we have to keep one eye open but there is some diplomacy that has to happen. are we dropping a nuclear explosive on them? >> pete: before now they're suddenly our biggest potential f oe, which of course mitt romney warned against in the presidential election. >> dan: romney was mocked for it. >> abby: it was james clapper. he was on with brennan, so we want to clarify that but dan in that exchange that president trump had with vladimir putin do you think he should have pushed back a little more when vladimir putin said no we did not medal in the elections because trump said he asked him a number of times but should he have handled
6:39 am
that moment differently in your opinion? >> dan: that was clapper i'm sorry, so let me, i apologize for that. you know, well he should have handled a little differently. the point right now is the democrats have been roundly proven wrong on this issue about the trump russia conspiracy here okay? the conspiracy was clearly between the democrats and fusion gps at this point that's obvious why they're doubling down on this narrative and making themselves look foolish is bizarre to me. this narrative will blow up in their face and so badly i can't understand why they keep continuing down the road with this. >> griff: one quick follow-up dan and that is this. your message to coming back to the election results because i want to, you ran for office and you want republicans to get off their butts but what tact do they take to get elected because we really are i think a lot of people are fair saying that we are headed for a blood bath particularly if tax cuts don't go through. >> dan: well here is the problem. the republican party right now has a messaging problem.
6:40 am
not a message problem. it's clear by this poll recently that young kids are leaning towards socialism. you know, they have a message problem. you have to go out and sell conservatism. it's easy when does freedom get to be such a tough sell? you keep your own money, your own healthcare, pick your own kid's schools this isn't a complicated message. we have to stop walking into soup kitchens and talk about freedom and liberty. >> abby: and you need people that are good messagers to be able to deliver on those and people are arguing and mitch mcconnell may not be the right one to bring in all of those young people. >> pete: dan bongino thanks for joining us someone turned the lights off behind you so we'll end this segment. you're no longer next to the ducks on the water there. >> dan: power outage. >> abby: dan good to see you. to some other headlines quickly. boeing kicking off the first day of the dubai airshow announcing a $15 billion order from emi rates a large airline in the middle east is ordering 40 boeing 787 dreamliners and it's already the biggest customer for

democratic lobbying firm with ties to hillary clinton now reportedly closing down the group run by the brothers of hillary clinton's campaign chairman has been a focus of the special council in the growing russia investigation. >> abby: here to weigh in sunday morning futures host maria bartiromo. good morning maria. >> maria: good to see you. >> abby: as they say actions often speak louder than any words can. >> maria: and this really is the comedown of anyone incredibly sort of successful non-law lobbying firm in washington for so many years. it's really a dramatic fall from where tony pedesta and john have been throughout their careers to what we're talking about now. obviously the ceo told employees on thursday clean out your desks , no more paychecks after november 15, leading a lot of news organizations to expect that this firm is going to be shuttered by year-end. >> pete: the pedesta group was poised to be a cash cow in a clinton administration that never happened and now whether it's through paul manafort or through their own dealings of fusion gps we learned how thick
6:46 am
and deep and bipartisan the swamp is and trading on the clinton name just isn't what it used to be. >> maria: that's absolutely right and what you're seeing here is as we spoken about, further evidence that the collusion between the russians and the u.s. really has been on the democratic side. i mean whether you look at this dossier or whether you look at the fact that hillary clinton's state department oversaw the sale of 20% of the uranium, the stockpile of the u.s. and then was given $145 million into the clinton foundation-- >> pete: while under fbi investigation. >> maria: and there's bill clinton getting half a million dollars for speeches from the russians. so all of this collectively you have to believe is part of robert mueller's investigation. >> abby: and maybe good news it's all finally coming out. we talk about the swamp as you said, pete and changes that need to be made. maybe this is a positive movement forward? >> maria: well at this point, there's shining a light on it so we're understanding a lot more and we're learning a lot more so yes, from that standpoint. >> griff: is it fair then to say in terms of the influence
6:47 am
the clintons have we'lled in washington is now coming to a close? >> maria: it feels that way but also when you look at the strength and power of hillary clinton the idea that some people actually think she is going to run again, which is just extraordinary. i don't know, [laughter]. >> griff: is she on your show today? >> maria: no we've got a great show talking about taxes, gary cohen the president's chief economic advisor, to take us through the tax player, my question is do they actually have the votes? here we are once again at an opportunity to get massive legislation passed first time in 30 years, but look what's happening with the allegations against roy moore. look what's happening with senator rand paul, a broken ribs you know, so again, you're at a situation where you have to wonder are they going to be able to get this across the finish line so we'll talk about that and also senator roy blunt to talk about the senate as they're going to be marking up this week >> pete: maria bartiromo, thank you so much.

6:52 am
has interviewed corporate anton deal rick we'll get to your story sir in just a moment but i interviewed you a while back about this today you've interviewed 750 before it was three or 400 your mission is still to go across the country and find every world war ii veteran you can find and tell their story. why? >> to get a better appreciation for the sacrifices that these men made. all these opportunities have been given to us with the price of blood of people like him who fought and people like him who died so that we could have a chance at life and it's my responsibility to learn and share those stories with the world. >> pete: corporal if i can it's an honor to have you here. i'll read a little bit of your biography you were drafted in the army in 1941, served as a rifleman of the 39th regimen of the 9th division fought in north africa, sicily and normandy awarded a bronze star and purple heart. if you would what was it like to serve in world war ii? >> actually i was not looking to
6:53 am
want to serve in the infantry. anywhere else would have been great. >> pete: [laughter] >> they sent my name down to go to ocs, officer's training school. i asked one question, and that was where and they said fort ben ing and with that i says no thanks. as long as it's in the infantry i'll be happy with what i've got right now. a pfc. >> pete: [laughter] >> the only way i was able to survive was to stay as the pfc. >> pete: well sir you have a powerful story. not only were you wounded in normandy which ultimately took you off the battlefield. your ship you were on during the invasion of north africa was hit by a german torpedo and stranded and then you were also wounded before you were wounded in normandy. talk me through that? >> well i got slightly wounded when we were backing up fighting
6:54 am
the germans, i got hit with a small piece of shrapnel, oh, approximately the size of a dime and it was sticking out so i pulled the rest of it out, stuck it in my pocket, hoping to keep it as a souvenir and didn't think anything of it and didn't think it was enough for a purple heart, so i completely ignored it and three days later as i was leaving my foxhole, all of a sudden i started limping. well, it went and got infected. >> pete: sure. but i think it's so amazing to our viewers about the story you just told is you didn't realize enough to think that you were wounded. you took the snap pal and put it in your pocket and kept fighting until an infection pulled you off the battle feed. it's that kind of grittiness that i think even this
6:55 am
generation of war fighters can't even relate to. >> it gives you a really great appreciation for just how lucky we are to live in today's world and it gives you the perspective of what at 19, 20 these boys what they had to go through and here today people are complaining about the smallest things like if they have internet connection on their phone? it really gives you a great perspective and such a great appreciation for the sacrifices that they made. they're heros. >> pete: thank you for interview ing with us today and for being here and for your service. what you did for our country and for free people everywhere. we honor you and we thank you for your service and thank you for what you do if you want to help with his mission, go to heros of the second world war.or g. he's always looking for veterans to talk to god bless you both. >> thank you.
