tv Outnumbered Overtime With Harris Faulkner FOX News July 18, 2019 10:00am-11:00am PDT
said. president trump has now disavowed the "send her back" chant that broke out as raleigh, north carolina, last night. this, after he ramped up her feud with the so-called "squad," those four congresswomen in the house. this is p26 with breaking news. i'm harris faulkner the president took aim at the fork aggressive congresswoman accusing them of hating america. this after they announced a resolution denouncing his initial attack on the squad is racist. here's president trump last night. >> tonight i have a submission n for the hate-filled extremists trying to tear country down. they never have anything good to say. that's what i say, "hey, if they don't like it, let them leave!" it's their choice. they can come back when they want. but you know, they don't love our country. i think in some cases they hate our country. >> harris: chief white house correspondent john roberts. i want to start with this. this is now not about the
anti-semitic and offensive things that those four congresswomen have been accused of saying. and even further than that, have said in some instances. this is now about where we go as a country with what will happen at a rally, and the president now saying no. it's not going to happen. this disavowing "center back." >> the pool is out of the office so we shall have the video a couple minutes. he also talked about the debt ceiling and around as well is this. the president has come under enormous criticism. mike pence was on l today. hear it from a number of republicans. 2016, the chant mantra was "lock her up" when he was talking about hillary clinton. "center back" is a completely different thing and there are a lot of republicans as well as literally every democrat in the country who are very upset with what happened that rally last night. the president was asking about it, why didn't stop it.
he said he thought he did stop it because he resumed his speech very quickly. he said he is not happy with it. he disagrees with it. we will see going forward at the next campaign event if you change the language a little bit so the crown does not get involved entrance like that. the president certainly go to the long distance trying to link the four congresswomen of the so-called "squad" with the democratic party at large. listen to what he said last night in those terms. listen here. >> it goes for every democrat in 2020, a vote for them as a vote for the rise of radical socialism and the destruction of the american dream. frankly, the destruction of our country. the democrats are being so violent, so vicious, moving so far left. it's out of control. out of control. the republican agenda is
pro-worker, pro-jobs, pro-family, pro-growth, and 100% pro-american. >> of the president singled out minnesota congresswoman ilhan omar specifically, and tht is what prompted the chant of "center back" last night at that rally. listen to how it unfolded >> obviously and importantly, omar has a history of launching vicious anti-semitic screens. >> send her back! send her back! send her back! >> so there you heard the crowd chanting. we are within the two-minute warning for the president's rollout. ilhan omar responded to his comments in the past hour. let's listen to what she said. >> and as much as he is spewing his fascist ideology on stage,
telling you as citizens to go back because they don't agree with his detrimental policies for our country, we tell people that here in the united states dissent is patriotic. >> the senate minority leader chuck schumer ripped the president for sewing division in america. look at what senator schumer said. >> is crowd chanting, "center back," about a duly elected member of congress and u.s. citizen. one of the oldest and ugliest racist attacks against americans of color. the weather president appeals to the worst instincts of people, what was shouted and changed at the rally last night, without the president upgrading them, was despicable. despicable. and eerily familiar to what happens in dictatorships. speak up at senate majority leader mitch mcconnell was staying away from this idea of
"send her back" or "send him back" " did listen here >> i think the president is onto something. we are having a big debate now. now, and next year, but we want america to be like. do we really think socialism applies here at a time of great prosperity? a 50-year low-end employment? that's with the election, i think, is going to be about. >> again, the tape is now beginning to roll. the president saying he disavows what happen last night. he didn't like it, and likely will take steps in the future from preventing it from happening. >> harris: john roberts outside the white house right now. that tape is getting ready, i want everyone to know that this was originally closed to the press. it was for the 2019 special olympics world games inside the oval office. he said he wants the nation to know and hear from him via the
pool of press that they are. let's watch together. >> reporter: mr. president, if i may, when your supporters last night were chanting "send her back," why didn't you ask him to stop saying that? >> president trump: number one, i think i did. i started speaking very quickly. it really was -- i disagree with it, by the way. but it was quite a chant, and i felt a little bit badly about it. but i will say, i did -- and i started speaking very quickly. but it started up rather fast, as you probably notice. >> reporter: what you don't tell your supporters -- >> president trump: i would say that. i was not happy with it. i disagree with it. again, i didn't say that. they did. but i disagree with it. >> reporter: i don't think if you examine it that you will find that. but i disagree with it. anybody else? >> reporter: why did you
decline the petition to be part of -- >> president trump: we had a date set and they wanted to change the date. they wanted to do in the form of an interview. i had to agree to make a speech. i would have loved to make a speech to the naacp. we have, as you know, record unemployment numbers. the lowest in the history of our country. the poverty numbers, and the african-americans doing the best they've ever done in the history of our country. it's something to be very proud of. i mean, really proud of. i was going over with mike before some of the numbers having to do the african-american community. it's the best numbers we've ever had. i very much wanted to go, but we had a date. the date got changed and unfortunately they wanted to do it in the form of a question and answer. i think you possibly will be the person asking the question. maybe you could answer the question better than me. yes, go ahead please. >> reporter: [indistinct question] >> president trump: no, i don't know anything about that
other than i've spoken to senator paul, and it senator paul is somebody i have a good relationship with. i would listen to him. but i didn't appoint him, no. when did this come up? >> reporter: yesterday. >> president trump: he is somebody i listen to. i respect senator paul. if you had some ideas, i would listen. i will say that iran is a much different country right now. when i took over, mike and i came into office, iran was the scourge of the world. they were doing 14 different sites of confliction. they were fighting and causing problems in yemen and syria and iraq and all over. it's a much different country right now. you look at what's happening, you look at them pulling back, and they are not pulling back because they love us. they are pulling back because they don't have money. they are being hurt very badly by sanctions. i hope that doesn't happen for long because i hope they are able to straighten it out. it can happen very quickly. but if you look at the original president obama deal, it was a
disaster for many standpoints. but almost most important, because it was going to be ending very shortly. it's a very short term deal. you can't have a short-term deal for a country. you need a hundred year deal. you don't need a short term -- in a few years, literally, they would be on their way to a nuclear weapon. that's unacceptable. plus, they can't do ballistic missiles. on the deal allows them to do ballistic missiles. we have to look at other sites. the most important sites, we were not allowed to go and look at. what kind of a deal is that? and many other things. so iran is not the same country. they have inflation now at 75%. they are having tremendous problems within the country. they are selling very little oil. we have an embargo, a stop on oil. even the european countries are now agreeing with me. you see they are coming over and coming over very strong. it's very sad what happened to iran. all we want to do is have a fair deal. the deal that was made was a bad deal. it was not approved by congress.
a lot of problems with the deal that was made. we can do something quickly or we can take your time. i'm in no rush. reported back mr. president, are you concerned about your supporters chanting -- >> president trump: i have tremendous support. i wasn't happy with that message that they gave last night. but that was a packed arena. we could have sold the arena. we could have sold tell ten of those arenas last night. there were tremendous numbers of people who couldn't get in. we had thousands of thousands of people outside and we have thousands and thousands of people who wanted to come and we said, "please don't come." and held 10,000 people, it was packed. we could have sold that arena ten times. there is tremendous support for the republican party. there is tremendous support for this team, for the president, the vice president. we have tremendous support. maybe like nobody has seen in a long time. it's great energy. i say there is far more energy on the right than there is on
the left. i hear about the left, all i see is they are fighting all over the place. i think we have far more support than we do and i think we are former energy than they do. we are going to have a very interesting election. but i was not happy when i heard that chance. thank you, everybody. [reporters asking questions] you would have to ask them, john. what i would suggest, i was not happy with it. but i would suggest, you go there, go to north carolina, and you ask the people why they said that. but that's what they said. >> reporter: it will you stop them if they try to do it again? >> president trump: i didn't like it and i started speaking very quickly. excuse me -- really? if you would have heard, it was a tremendous amount of noise and action and everything else. i started very quickly. i think you know that. maybe you are giving me too much credit. you are used to giving me too much credit. thank you, everybody. [reporters asking questions]
i would certainly try, yes. we are working on the debt ceiling with congress. don't forget, president obama added more debt than any president put together. you're talking about a debt ceiling -- president obama added $10 trillion to our debt during his eight years. he doubled the debt. he had more debt than every other president, every single president put together. president obama doubled -- more than doubled -- the debt. so we are talking about a debt ceiling. the previous president doubled the debt. that's what we get stuck with. that's the way it is, folks. thank you very much. >> right this way, guys. thank you very much. >> harris: the president of the united states and first lady were at a special olympics event inside the oval office, which was first close to the press and then open to members of the
media. that's what we've been watching those last few minutes. you saw some of the team around him. team leadership of that special olympics team. and then, the news of the day. the first point about the president was asked about was the rally last night in greenville, north carolina, where a chant broke out, "send her back," with regard to congresswoman ilhan omar of minnesota. he said he was not happy with that last night. i want to bring in white house deputy press secretary hogan gidley. think of your being on the program today. it's been an interesting -- really, 96 hours. not just 15 or so. but i want to ask about the president disavowing those chants from last night. he said, "i was not happy with those messages, but the crowd was huge and the energy was great." why did the president disavowed those remarks, that chant, "send her back," about representative omar, and real-time? >> he didn't let it go on very long. he was very stoic and kept
driving his message home. he didn't let the crowd slow him down all that long. except to hear what they were chanting. i was actually in the room and it's pretty raucous at a president trump rally because he is so successful. people are excited about the future of the country with him as the president. he moved on but he also said, "if somebody tries that chant again," in that pool spray right now -- he said he would do his best to stop it. that's what this is about. it's two fundamental decisions, two fundamental opinions about where this country is. there is a group on the left led by "the squad," if you will, that are so ungrateful and so disrespectful to a country that has given them opportunities that they would not have received anywhere else on the planet. i was talking to ben carson yesterday. i don't want to betray trust, but we were talking about the situation. you look at some of you like ilhan omar, who is a refugee, no congresswoman. look at somebody like aoc, who got to college. then once you graduated, was a
bartender and is now a congresswoman. this is an incredible country. it couldn't happen anywhere els else. ben carson said to me, "i've faced real racism in my life. coming from abject poverty. but i didn't let it slow me down. i became a neurosurgeon. and look at this room -- i'm a cabinet member for a president of the united states." he's not a victim, he is the victor. that's the different here. and the fundamental dichotomy, a different choice between where we stand and where the left stands. we believe this country is the greatest place, the greatest idea ever realized. and they don't. they've set a time and time again, and that's what this is about. the president has made that really clean. >> harris: i want to bring up this point -- to the president here for many republican members of congress? g.o.p. congressman mark walker tweeted this about the crowd chant during the president's rally last night. "thought it was brief. i struggled with the "sent her back" chant referencing representative omar. her history, words, and actions,
that should be our focus and not freezing "that's painful to our friends in the minority community." >> are you asking if he has spoken with many of our lawmakers to make obsolete. he set conversations. we didn't have to have conversations with them to know what's right and what's wrong. he talked about it today. this was his first opportunity in front of the press to make his case, and he did. i do think it's interesting, however, that the press demands this president disavow simple words. they are offensive, wrong, and he pointed that out. he did it repeatedly in the oval office just now. however, when a terrorist act occurs in washington state, on american soil, you hear a deafening silence from the squad and from the left to refuse to say anything about those actions. they have yet to disavow those actions, and call them out for what they are. that's a big difference in this country right now. we are seeing it play out time
and time again. >> harris: hogan, one thing i've been asking democratic members about is that it's also not a second order for democrats in the house not to also denounce some of the things that have come out of these four women in particular. that some view as very offensive and anti-semitic. they had a resolution on the house floor. but it didn't name her. let's move on from that. do you think it is transparent for the president to say that he does not know where that phrase came from, when it was in his sunday tweet? >> listen, he was asked repeatedly to clarify that, and he did on the south lawn. again, how many times does he have to say it? when he was pointing out is this country is amazing. it has afforded them opportunities. it has afforded him opportunities. he could have received nowhere else on the face of the globe. if you don't like this country and you disagree on policy, that's fine. if you disagree on politics, we welcome that open debate. the problem is that these four women continually run down this
country as being evil, the cause of so many problems across the globe, and that's problematic and dangerous rhetoric and language. you hear someone like ilhan omar talk about the 9/11 attacks, somebody did something. she latched off al qaeda when aoc continually derides and mocks the schedule. rashida tlaib hank start with known terrorist have been convicted of killing people. this is a serious difference in this country's future and the direction that it's headed. even those who disagree with us, using the president do everything in his power to make this country better place, and has for every single demographic. but so many on the left continue to say that america is not only a horrible, evil, disgusting place, but that it's the cause of so many problems around the world, and we think that's fundamentally wrong and the wrong place to be. >> harris: i hope people are listening carefully to the examples that you gave about what is possible in the
united states america. many stories. thank you for your time and make it clear why the president has not disavowed that chant from last night in north carolina. we appreciate your time. president trump last night also stepping up warnings about 2020 democrats saying a vote for any democratic candidate is a vote for radical socialism and the destruction of the american dream. is this a winning strategy for the president can act carry any risk? analysis from our top political journalists, had. ♪ va home loan for veterans it lets you borrow up to 100 percent of your home's value. the newday va loan lets you refinance your mortgages, consolidate your credit card debt, put cash in the bank, and lower your payments over $600 a month. call today. and get the financial peace of mind every veteran deserves.

"boot edge edge," he's a beauty. he runs a failed city. if that's the hot young star, i guess i just don't know start
them anymore. that's not a star. >> harris: set your watch, it started. 2020. the battle lines being drawn in the 2020 race. president trump it has rally in north carolina last night going after potential democratic rivals including joe biden, elizabeth warren, pete buttigieg, and bernie sanders. he also warned a vote for any democrat in 2020 is a vote for "the rise of radical socialism and the destruction of the american dream." senior politics writer for "u.s. news & world report." david, as a strategy compasses were? i just light -- this is like one of the first time to talk about the democratic candidates by name in a few days. there's been a lot of other stuff going on. >> this is the first time he's mentioned so many different candidates. he also mentioned kamala harris, who has had a bit of a bump in the democratic primary recently. the question of does this work -- it's not working so far. even the polling, the own internal campaign polling, which was leaked a few weeks back,
should hand behind the major conductors in the key battleground states. what's clear is that the president is going to tie socialism around the neck of whoever the democratic nominee is. i think it's easier to do against some candidates and others. >> harris: david, that works. we know that works because axios reported that democratic group leaked it, that internal polling among democrats which showed that when that word is put on -- and it pointed out for those for democratic congresswoman, the squad, because some of them identify themselves as pretty far left. but when you can apply the word socialistic it's complicated for democrats. they don't win against president trump. >> i think it's duke's fear in americans when they hear "socialist." which is why bernie sanders, although he leads in polling against trump right now, would have a complication path and a general election if trump drove that message. which i think he will.
now, against joe biden, he is not lurching as far to the left as a bernie sanders, and elizabeth warren, even as a kamala harris on something like medicare for all. so i think it's a little bit tougher to throw the socialist label on a known entity of joe biden. >> harris: so the the upcoming debates -- we still have 20 people in them, and you talk about joe biden and wanting to get his message out. what exactly is his message? he saying, "you can keep obamacare." then he still from obama. "you can keep your medical care and your doctor." we know that wasn't true! become his message is restoration of the obama legacy. >> harris: is not going to work out? >> i'm not going to predict a democratic nominee right now, just like i did not predict the last republican presidential primary currently! his messages also, "i can win. if you take all these other candidates, they are riskier because they are more liberal in a lot of policies. trump will more easily be able to label them as a socialist,"
as we said. biden right now is that by double digits against president trump. i think that's going to change as this campaign develops but that is his message. "i can win," and that's the most important thing for democrats. winning the presidency. >> harris: it is extraordinarily early for that, because getting out of the primary is going to be the challenge for joe biden and all of these others. when you talk about picking up steam after they go one-on-one, senator kamala harris kind of won that battle. at least that's what the polling shows. >> she did, she got a bump. remember, pete buttigieg got a big bump a few months ago. >> harris: he's all over the place now. >> but he came back down. this is a long process. kamala harris got a big bump, she will be in the debates this week, but she will have arrows pointing at her. he was the more aggressive joe biden knowing he can't rest back on his laurels and think everyone will play nice with him. you might see a more aggressive
joe biden and that will change the trajectory of the racing end. >> harris: david catanese, thank you. good to see paid president trump claims his winning the postal fight as he steps up his battle with the congressman is that news breaking on this hour. plus, i talked with hogan gidley of the press team at the white house paid lot to get into. the power panel, next. ♪ has been excellent. they really appreciate the military family and it really shows. with all that usaa offers why go with anybody else? we know their rates are good, we know that they're always going to take care of us. it was an instant savings and i should have changed a long time ago. it was funny because when we would call another insurance company, hey would say "oh we can't beat usaa" we're the webber family. we're the tenney's we're the hayles, and we're usaa members for life. ♪ get your usaa auto insurance quote today.

understand, the majority of it has to do with this danger. he refers to the thousands of sexually explicit photos of younger women and minors recently found in epstein's new york city home. the compelling testimony from two of epstein's accusers who spoke out in court monday monday, addressing their fears that if released epstein would not only continue to hurt girls but that he would intimidate other potential victims and witnesses from coming forward. >> only by taking away the freedom of jeffrey epstein can we restore the freedom of these victims. they have been living in fear and intimidation since the day they were abused by him, and now he is in jail. >> in his decision, judge berman cited evidence epstein had intimidated witnesses in the past, including two hush money payments epstein allegedly made totaling $350,000 to two suspected coconspirators just
day before they are mentioned in the "miami herald"'s functional investigative story that came out last fall. the judge also agreed with prosecutors that epstein is an extreme flight risk, citing the discovery of an expired austrian passport found in a locked safe that have epstein's photo with a fake name, and it had a residence listed from saudi arabia. epstein's lawyers made it clear they were willing to pay any bail amount and agree to any restrictions to get epstein released on house arrest inside his $77,000,000.21000 square-foot mansion in new york city. they said they wouldn't sell surveillance. that he would pay for private cars. but in the end, judge berman deciding today that no bail package would have been adequate to allow this man out as he awaits his trial. harris? >> harris: bryan llenas, thank you very much. so many deals to that end continues. will come back to you. president trump earlier today, just moments ago, actually,
disavowing the "send her back" chance that the crowd broke into it congressman ilhan omar during his campaign rally last night in greenville, north carolina. but the president is not backing down from the ideological argument ahead in 2020. here's what he said last night about the squad. >> i do think i'm winning the political fight. i think i'm running it by a lot. >> why? >> i think they are not espousing the views of our country. the four congresswomen. i think they said horrible things that the press doesn't cover it. i think you should try covering it. when you look at some of the things they've said, they are unthinkable. >> harris: capri cafaro, former democratic ohio state senator. guy benson, political editor of townhall.com and the fox news contributor. a great panel today. thank you very much. the president has disavowed that chat last night. where are we? are we moving forward? >> this is published , it's the right thing for him to have done. he said he started speaking
quickly to try and quell the chance. it seems like you give it some breathing room, we slam in the oval office moments ago saying, "i disagree with it, i was not happy with it." i will point out he said similar things after "lock her up" became a thing back in 2016. there needs to be a follow-up. he's the only person with the power to stop this check. i think it's much uglier chance. if it bubbles up again at a rally, it's up to him. he has a duty to say, "not here. voter out." >> harris: hogan gidley joined me what was going and we had to give the session on what's going on since sunday, the original tweet is on record saying it, it's more than a gesture to say it can't happen. he said the president will
caught out in real time. that's what this conversation was about. capri? >> i certainly hope it's the case and i'm glad president trump has spoken up today and spoken up publicly on camera. he is so unshy about his message. that i'm surprised that if he was concerned about it he did not go forward and actually tweet out that he disavowed this chance yesterday evening. and then circled back to it on camera today. we all need to elevate this discussion. i certainly agree that guy and i are very much on the same page here. i don't agree with the policies of the squad. they have the right to have them -- >> harris: let's pause there. let's get into that. because i had our brain room look for some of the instances that these four women had said things that were horrible and offensive. anti-semitic, so on and so forth. so you have a resolution that happened a couple months back with nancy pelosi, but it didn't name the person who had said this. representative omar, of minnesota, about "the benjamins
benjamins." >> can i please just jump in here? as a democrat at the table, i -- >> harris: what you want to see? >> i've been on record. when that issue came out, the anti-semitic remarks getting oxygen from representative omar, i wrote -- in light of that resolution, i wrote a piece for foxnews.com saying the democrats did not go far enough. that we should have been explicit in naming her and named issue. >> harris: because that didn't happen, do you think that's why it has fast forwarded to the point where it still -- i mean, they called the speaker of the house recess. you are at the top of the food chain. the go-ahead. >> i think this -- these women have had different expenses in their lives that they bring to bear. but so have all of us. i've been called names as an italian american at every door of knox, practically, when i first ran 15 years ago. that doesn't define who i am. you move on. so i think we need to move on, all, as americans. >> harris: i want to give you
a quick last word. >> omar is unapologetic. she refused to apologize for your previous anti-semitism. i think president trump is right to say that we should china spotlight on things that she and her squad believe and have said, that the media seems unwilling or uncomfortable covering. the "send her back" chance, that is easy catnip for the media. it's terrible, trump was right to denounce it, but there's another side to this that has avoided and evaded scrutiny. i think we know why. >> harris: thank you both. appreciate it, onto breaking news and a pretty fox news alert, president trump reacting a short time ago at the white house, as he watched. also, to the situation with iran. the president says the countries being hurt by sanctions. well, yeah. this, as we are now learning that a large u.s. warship loaded with marines and helicopters entered the persian gulf just hours after iran said it had seized a foreign oil tanker and its 12-men crew in the strata form use

come on, man! what's that about? none of us would have our children in that position! they are human beings! >> harris: joining me now, a member of that house oversight committee. republican congressman from tennessee, mark green. so this kicked off with a lot of emotion. >> was on was out of control control preet even the facts aren't right. when they show pictures of children cages comments from the obama administration. congresswoman oco sea of cortez said they were not getting drinking water. she was just taking the word of someone. she didn't actually go and test that. then when border patrol went and checked it there was actually drinking water. there facts just aren't correct. we really need to do is put this into perspective. a natural disaster happening in a city, that emergency department just gets overwhelmed with hundreds of their patience
in the hallway. there are patience out in the parking lot. it's not the doctors' fault. it's not the nurses' fault that that e.r. has been overwhelmed by that crisis. we have on our southern border is a crisis, and it is massive. they've ignored it for months. trying to say it was manufactured. and i when they can't avoid it any longer, they are going to blame the president. and that's what we are experiencing. that's what we are seeing in this committee room. honestly, it's shameful. >> harris: can i ask you -- there are a couple of questions i have. first of all, the blame game doesn't take us down any further the road than where we are right now. it doesn't come up with legislation to fix the problem. >> right. >> harris: 's of those ideas now, are a pox on both political houses. because not everybody has to come together like a summit. it has a happen whether people like each other or not. is there enough transfer and see when people go down these border
centers? i know congresswoman ocasio-cortez has said they weren't allowed in, so she said she took the word of other people, as he pointed out. if i go down there as a journalist, i know that i can see certain things. but how much transparency is there? >> there is complete transparency when they actually get an official visit approved. it's interesting, the democratic party controls the house. they are the ones you get to decide if a congressional delegation can actually happen. >> harris: can they do it expeditiously? >> absolutely, they can. they can make it happen. in fact, we are leaving a week from sunday with the g.o.p. delegation to go down there. we'll start in el paso and go all the way over to arizona. absolutely -- >> harris: you will hit a lot! from joe gallas to el paso. let me ask you this. i don't know if the audience knows much about your background, but from what i under don ike remembered reading you're a doctor
tell me what you see. you look at the step in the crate >> i'm in physician. disaster preparedness is barely what i'm trained for. i'm also an ex-army physician. i worked in iraq and afghanistan. whenever the system is overwhelmed, you going to triage mode. our system is overwhelmed. what we have to do is increase the diameter of the pipeline. dhs is done this. they have put new holding facilities in place and two more coming online. now the children that are being held, it's down to 300. maybe 350 as of yesterday, according to -- >> harris: by the still a big number. >> it is a big number. the real fix is congress fixing our sound laws. and changing this incentive to make a horrible track where women are being assaulted, in amongst drug dealers. he saw this report.
>> harris: i've got to wrap you up because i understand the president is coming up, and i don't mean to cut it short. i want to know more about that delegation to become sunday. i will hit the team up on that. congressman, thank you for your time. this is breaking this hour. philadelphia's police commissioner has just announced moments ago that 13 officers will be suspended from the department for 30 days with intent to dismiss, all because of offensive facebook posts. they viewed lily miller cook at the story. david? >> that's right, harris. ending whimsical, the police commissioner at this conference at some of those posts, and his words, "violated the basic tenets of human decency." last month a group revealed the post by philadelphia police officers that were violent, racist, homophobic, or otherwise offensive in nature. they were taken off the street, placed on admin strata status. the posts have been reviewed by a law firm in philadelphia at the request of the police department to make sure no constitutional rights have been violent. going to the police commissioner, all but three of the 72 officers put on administrative leave will now
face some form of disciplinary action. 13, he said, will be suspended for 30 days with intent to dismiss. they will lose their jobs. the highest-ranking among those who were looked at as a sergeant, according to the police commissioner, and here now in his words what some of the post said. >> anti-islamic posts such as "death to islam." another piece of expletive. references to african-americans as "thugs" or "p-words looking for free excluded." encouragement to police brutality, suggesting police should have "split their wigs." >> the commission went on to say measures are in place to train officers on how to more appropriately use social media. he also said there could be other action taken against officers, but apparently the worst cases were the ones taken
at first. in the words of the police commissioner, he said some of the posts were sickening. back to you. >> harris: david, thank you very much. for the latest on that from philadelphia. this is happening now -- the president is still taking questions from inside the oval office with the media. different, though -- she's meeting with the netherlands prime minister. so he was once asked again about the chance last night. he disavowed again, and sanctions on iran. much more as it happens. stay withme me i get ingrowing hairs" "oh i love it. it's a great razor. it has that 'fence' in the middle. it gives a nice smooth shave. just stopping that irritation.... that burn that i get. i wouldn't use anything else" . . car insurance, so you only pay for what you need.
i know what you're thinking. i thought what you thought. some things are just too good to be true. just like you, i thought that reverse mortgages had to have some kind of catch. just a way for the banks to get your house right? well, then i did some homework harris hairs news is breaking. we are inside a very short warning that the president's comments from just moments ago as he is meeting with the netherlands prime minister inside the oval office are ready for us to
view. just a couple of things. he has disavowed those chants of "send her back" from his rally in north carolina. we understand he will be asked about those again. he said he won't let that happen again. he will call it out in realtime. let's watch. have you ruled out sanctions? >> we are looking at it. we are looking at it. very, very difficult situation for a lot of reasons. things could have been done better in the previous administration. the previous administration made some very big mistakes with regard to turkey. and it was too bad. we are looking at it. we will see what we do. we haven't announced that yet. >> what would your message be to your supporters who are making that chant? >> well, these are people that love our country. i want them to keep loving our country. and i think the congresswomen by the way should be more positive than they are. the congresswomen have a lot of problems. when you look at the statements they made that
were so bad and so horrible to our country. you look at what they said, john, what they said was something that is hard to believe that they could make statements like that. and i could go page over page over page, many, many statements whether it's about us, whether it's about israel. whether it's about the world trade center and all of the different things that were said. it was a very terrible thing. i'm not happy about when i hear a chant like that. and i have said that and i have said it very strongly. i will tell you the congressman and women also have a big obligation in this country and in every country, frankly. but they have a big obligation. and the obligation is to love your country. there is such hatred. they have such hatred. i have seen statements that they have made with such hatred toward our country. and i don't think that's a good thing. they should embrace our country. they should love our country. and things would be a lot better. thank you very much. everybody.

questions about it from the media, but complaining from different companies, like microsoft and oracle and ibm. great companies are complaining about it, so we are going to take a look at it. we will take a very strong look at it. thank you very much, everybody. >> thank you, press. right this way, guys. thank you. thank you, press. thank you, guys. thank you, press. thank you, guys. we are leaving now. thank you. thank you very much. we are leaving now, guys. thank you very much. we are leaving. >> thank you. >> we are leaving now. thank you, guys. >> harris: you see the president in the video gets a little bit shaky because the media with their camera ares are rolling out the room. is he with the netherlands prime minister asking about the chants of "send her back" at the greenville, north carolina rally last night. he said i'm not happy with the chants. the obligation is to love your country. i doubled down with again, i'm not happy with the chants. they shouldn't have
