two more coming because of the trade situation. did you know that feeling sluggish or weighed down could be signs that your digestive system isn't working at its best? taking metamucil every day can help. >> there will be at least one more rate cut but the analysis that it should be done because metamucil supports your daily digestive health of the trade war is wrong. using a special plant-based fiber called psyllium. i always argued the reason to psyllium works by forming a gel in your digestive system cut these rates and donald trump to trap and remove the waste that weighs you down. metamucil's gelling action also helps to lower cholesterol -- cut rates more than i do is we don't see any inflation in and slows sugar absorption the economy. to promote healthy blood sugar levels. if anything you see slight so, start feeling lighter and more energetic by taking metamucil every day. deflation in the economy. there needs to be more liquidity. they have to injected into the so chantix can help you quit slow turkey.key. economy. it is one of the reasons we along with support, chantix is proven to help you quit. select from 3% growth last year, to 2%. with chantix you can keep smoking at first it's not the only reason but the and ease into quitting. tight money contributed to a slight slowdown. chantix reduces the urge so when the day arrives, you'll be more ready to kiss cigarettes goodbye. neil: is there a sense of the people you talk to in back of when you try to quit smoking, the white house the trade deal wasn't enough? with or without chantix, you may have nicotine withdrawal symptoms. it's not looking that way? stop chantix and get help right away
7:15 am
if you have changes in behavior or thinking, >> depends what day you ask. aggression, hostility, depressed mood, it is a moving target with extreme frustration at the white suicidal thoughts or act, new or worse heart or blood vessel problems, house that starts at the oval sleepwalking, or life-threatening allergic and skin reactions. office that the chinese are not negotiating in good faith. the next day they do the decrease alcohol use. opposite. use caution driving or operating machinery. the idea that they would buy tell your doctor if you've had mental health problems. more of our agriculture is something they agreed to. the most common side effect is nausea. quit smoking slow turkey. there is extreme frustration with the way the chinese are talk to your doctor about chantix. doubledealing. i am a free-trade guy but when it comes to china's, trump's line is appropriate. neil: here we go again and again china, just talking about the and again. question of human rights going breaking news out of north korea. on in hong kong, cheating and they are claiming kim jong un stealing with respect to cyber has testified another rocket launch system. this is the fourth time in the espionage and all these things, and a hard line that i think is appropriate but what is frustrating to the white house is there is a sense that maybe
7:16 am
they will try to wait out trump. past week and a half they've we have an election 14 or 15 done this thing. months from now and they may just think we will deal with the how should the us respond? so far the president isn't exactly dismissing this but isn't exactly panicking over is that. joe biden or elizabeth warren. good to have you. what do you make of this? what do we have to do or should we in response of this? >> i think this pattern of >> american chinese business behavior, this misbehavior if you allow me to call it that is alliance, trade council with statements this week criticizing the president for upping the indicative of what kim's father and grandfather did, they have a pattern of doing this. trade anti-and putting tariffs -- with all the goods we get in this case the chinese are back to haunt them in the country. involved in this. they are encouraging kim. this is something they are using >> we have seen a 500 point as leverage in trade talks and decline since trump announced it is important to understand those tariffs. this is serious. i can't speak for donald trump that i've talked to him many blasting kim wants to do is give times about this. up his nuclear arsenal. it is a longer-term gain for the economy and that is right. think about this.
7:17 am
going forward we will probably see more talks, not between him 50 year low in unemployment and and the president initially. inflation rates, 50 year low in interest rates. there will be lower-level got a good picture on the diplomatic negotiations and economy. discussions on this but this bad behavior is tied back to the chinese. the one thing is this trade war between the largest economies in heather: neil: they are saying you should the world. does trump want to get a deal keep doing this but to what end? done? absolutely. he understands once you get the >> to what end? i think we realize they have deal done you see a 500 point decline and tariffs were tremendous influence over kim. they are, without saying so, ratcheted up. wait until you get a deal. saying we have the influence to get him to ratchet up the >> if he is arguing american pressure. consumers are not feeling it because the chinese value their currency, if that is the case what they see, what they want and people argue that then china could wait this out indefinitely. america to see if they can get kim to test these missiles at their directive. as much as we would like to see china doesn't have to worry whether donald trump is president for joe biden is president. said we this come to a peaceful conclusion they are holding us hostage, their influence on kim
7:18 am
and his willingness to do what they ask him to do. neil: you follow this more closely than i. it usually goes something like this, ascertaining the white house without the white house saying so, rights another beautiful letter or one of those things, all of a sudden the president kind of withholds his fire but there is only so many times you can do that. >> i think the president consistently said this is not part of the discussion in the original framework. neil: neither were four tests of any sort in a week. >> we need to take this seriously. i can't get inside the president's head and understand why he's been willing to ignore this and downplay of the way he has.
7:19 am
i think this is serious and it does threaten our allies. it doesn't threaten the continental united states but it threatens north korea, south korea, japan. it is a serious threat with short range missiles. i don't know why he plays it down other than he's trying to hold the door open to future discussions on this. >> we ripped of this nuclear agreement with the russians. part of the ideas they are cheating anyway so we start from scratch and try to include the chinese. >> it is a good idea, not the first time that has been called for. and the intelligence community, we go 15 years that the russians were violating this and no one had the courage to hold them accountable. as far as i am concerned, looking at the nato allies, other nations at the united
7:20 am
nations of also lined up behind us on this. we have done the right thing and the president doing the right thing, where do we go from here? what you are going to see is a period of time the us will increase capabilities in that area. this is about land-based, i emphasize land-based intermediate nuclear forces and you will see a time we will do the same thing and we will be back in discussions about trying to come to agreement on the treaty. the us and the russians will destroy those capabilities. the key is bringing the chinese into this and i'm not sure they are willing to do this. they have resisted this. every time they have been asked, they have resisted. neil: dealing with them on the trade front, we have another can of worms.
7:21 am
>> good to be with you. neil: this is agitating to put it mildly. tent weekend we have seen these uprisings but what is different this go around, one of the most crowded cities, defying orders on the part of the chinese to cease-and-desist. i don't see them ceasing or disgusting. you go on about how... ...it's so confusing it hurts my brain. ya i hear ya... or say you can't believe... ...how much of a hassle it is! and tell anyone who'll listen... (garbled)....it's so expensive! she said it's so expensive. tell me about it. yes.. well i'm telling the people at home. that's why esurance is making the whole experience surprisingly painless. so, you never have to talk about it, unless you're their spokesperson. esurance. it's surprisingly painless.

debts. >> doing it now. neil: anyway, do you wonder about that strategy? say what you will about barack obama, if he wasn't as far left,whatever. for democrats, he was a rock star, remains a rock star, is that a wise strategy? >> no, they look like a bunch of fools and cory booker said it the person who won these debates is president trump. cory booker made the point. neil: well, booker was also-- >> kool-aid man. neil: you can't pick and choose your friendly obama moments. >> genius and then kool-aid. but 95% approval rating amongst democrats right now. 65% right now with the independents for barack obama. people still love him today. neil: you know, i don't think that barack obama could be nominated by this party. >> look, i think that the truth right now we have democrats all over america saying i don't know what's happening with my party. you have republicans saying we've been trying to tell you about this party for a long time. neil: and a lot of republicans that say the same thing about
7:35 am
their party. >> that's true, but i think realistically, a lot of people are watching that debate saying the only time they weren't trying to tear down the legacy of barack obama was when they were actually trying to claim credit for the 6 million jobs under president trump's economy. so that's the thing we have to deal with right now for republicans to say, guess what, while they're scrabbling about things that don't mean anything, if the republicans are proposing eliminating health care, call it what it is. they've sat there, they've collectively bargained for years and make sure their union members can have the best possible health care under the current system and democrats say we don't care, we're going to take it away from them. and if you hold onto the messages and explain what's happening, they're trying to create an america that's unrecognizable-- >> no, no, no, i've talked to strategies and people who advised president and they say it's anybody, but trump. neil: i think they're trying anyone, but joe biden, but where you thread the needle there, you
7:36 am
don't want to anger barack obama or any offist loyalists or messages or presidency. this is a guy, front runner who is capitalizing off of it so you have to do that carefully. >> they're playing a very dangerous game and it's self-interested. because they're basically kicking their own party to the curb saying we're going to attack someone who has been a representative of our party to try to win the nomination and come back and cater to their party and say, never mind, we apologize? that's not a good strategy here. for everyone looking at the democratic party, every single person knows that those democrats on 2020 except possibly joe biden, they're not going to get the nomination, not one of those people on that stage has any chance. neil: and i heard congresswoman dingell of michigan, the idea was to try to flip michigan into the democratic column after trump won, that they didn't succeed. >> and texas.

8:07 am
somebody like elizabeth warren, like bernie sanders. that's what people don't seem to recognize. and the harder truth when you talk about are democrats mad, you cannot rebuild the obama coalition without obama on the ballot. unless there's a secret plan in the back room-- >> what about michelle obama? >> she would win. >> no way. >> she's the most dangerous political figure on the bench right now. i think republicans know this. but it's not going to happen. >> it should. neil: okay. that means you're decided with all the other candidates. >> every single one of them. whoever gets the domination. >> you know why democrats are so angry? they know that president trump is succeeding on behalf of the american people and they're having to say unemployment and-- that's the democratic talking points. that's not a democratic talking point. >> everything comes down to the-- if you can't get people to vote for barack obama, to vote for-- >> all right.
8:08 am
we're going to moller and scream during the break here. in the meantime, there's a lot in the white house over the signing to boost our beef to the europeans. and you know what wasn't shown on camera, the president signing the bill that keeps the debt up 2 trillion. >> my parents met to after that we moved to georgia for a couple years. then we spent some time in korea- mmm seaweed snacks. and now we live here for good. our members call many places home, oh, lots of questions. so we made owning a home easier. navy federal credit union. our members, are the mission.

8:10 am
don't you get the one of those travel sites?t they tell you that, but when you book at hilton.com, you get the price match guarantee. so if you find your room at a lower rate, hilton is like... we're gonna match that rate and give you an extra 25% off. what would travel sites do if you found a better price? that's not my problem, it's your problem.
8:11 am
get outta here! whoa, i really felt that performance. it's just acting, i'm really good at it. book at hilton.com and get the hilton price match guarantee. if you find a lower rate, we match it and give you 25% off that stay. >> (applause) >> now you remember that. that was on tv and the president, you know, using the value here. getting the europeans to agree to bi-more-- buy more beef from the united states. what was not shown on camera was the massive budget to add to the deficits as we approach 23 trillion dollars, all said and done, 25 trillion dollars. neither party, to be fair, has done much to address this issue and it doesn't look like it's going to be addressed any bit in the near future. back to charles payne, jonas max
8:12 am
ferris and deirdre bolton. that's the story, the debt continues to grow and neither party seems to care. >> that's true, both parties have been spending like sailors and-- >> yeah, but what sailors do is their money. >> that's a legitimate point. this is pretty frightening. we're talking about some of the overhang costs which are big. i keep thinking of heck, our proprietary research during mid terms, that's the number one most important issue for voters. we know we're spending close to something like 18% of gdp on health care. it's not the best system in the world. it's inefficient and it's expensive so i think that's at least one place we can tackle it hopefully in 2020. i know there's a lot of different opinions on that. we talked about those costs, education costs up something like 130%, if you looked since the 1980's. so a lot of things that people care about cost a lot more money. neil: but debt isn't one of those issues. when you talk to the voters top
8:13 am
ten issues it can be a variety of different polls and debt doesn't appear anywhere. >> we thought years ago, ten years ago, maybe the magic number it would be 10 trillion and then 15 trillion. and sort of like, call me when we get there. as we're going off the cliff. it's he have ti-- inevitable. it's a bird that they eat, it's a delicacy, and blind folded because they're ashamed. neil: not in a million years. [laughter] >> thanks a lot, payne. >> that's why it wasn't shown on tv. neil: and so, jonas, you know, the president says that this budget deal is a great deal. we have plenty of time to cut. obviously implying that he gets in, republicans will regroup and they'll get there. i think it's a little thin pen. he didn't make a big dramatic
8:14 am
thing out of the signing. the time to cut was two years where the republicans had more power. look, at the end of the day, the debt to gdp is what matters and it's not going out of control. it's been more or less leveled off since to 12, but it radically went up during the great recession and we're never chipping that down. neil: they're waiting for charles and i to retire. >> the other longer term problem. neil: leave it with you guys. >> the trajectory of the entilements will bankrupt us if nothing is done with it. neil: nobody does anything about it. >> the dianger of the republica in the white house. all they're talking about is spending more money on things. republicans made an issue on this with obama. they did, they kept the spending down. that's gone now. the closest we had to heading in the right direction was late obama years when the spending was-- >> well, i think with bill clinton and newt gingrich. we started reversing it. >> that's the last time that--
8:15 am
>> well, obama did not raise taxes to clinton levels, that would have led to surpluses. neil: well, no, he had an internet boom as well and he had mutual consensus working with gingrich at least slowing the growth. >> under the administration it's not growing as much as obama. neil: not that you're trying to dismiss 23 trillion in debt like it's no problem. it was goes fast under reagan and-- >> you're drinking the kool-aid, too. >> he knows the flavor. neil: yes, he does. you know the flavor. lemon. deirdre, wall street to charles' earlier point, too, if it's panicking, a funny way to show it. separate issues, trade notwithstanding, they've been marching through all of this acquiring the debt. >> from the time i spent on the floor of the new york stock exchange, trade was the number one issue and everything else was really a close third--
8:16 am
rather, a far third from those two issues. neil: what does it say? >> it says that we believe that interest rates are going to be extraordinarily low for an extraordina extraordinarily long period of time. i think we've entered a period where the rates are so low, everyone is going to have to-- all the books and manuals out there are going to have to be rewritten. as long it's that low, we can service this debt. to jonas' point, and eventually trillions a year and take us off the cliff. neil: and can you tell us when? >> you and i will be in our rocking chairs, or maybe eating a little bird with blind folds on. >> in germany you have to pay for the privilege of loaning the government your money, right? if you're buying government debt, i mean, even if ours looks not as great as under clinton, it's still-- >> the large saving grace is in the world of dwarfs, we're the tallest.
8:17 am
>> cleanest dirtier shirt in the closet. >> and buying bonds, investors are willing to own foreign debt at a negative term. a yield, 2%, how can people lend money to the government at 2% with all of this deabt. that's a break even. >> we might head down there at the rate we're doing. would i say if we weren't borrowing a trillion a year, we would be at 1 or a 1/2%. >> and it's the care that. neil: and the whole thing blows up with the debt thing. does that enter into your equation when you advice people? >> not right now. even this week, the semiconductors stocks, i'm salivating to go in and buy some great semiconductor stocks next week. neil: something's wrong with
8:18 am
you. [laughter] >> the danger, neil, if it's all of a sudden. >> that's like the fitzgerald, a character and saying how did this guy go bankrupt? it was mriek-- like gradually and suddenly. neil: i'm hoping one of you would give me a date here. >> you want to know. neil: thank you all for coming in on saturday and so much more. all right, we've got a lot more coming up, including the president firing back at the 2020 candidates, but taking aim at tulsi gabbard accusing the president, she accused the president of actually supporting al-qaeda after this. fact is, every insurance company hopes you drive safely. but allstate actually helps you drive safely... with drivewise. it lets you know when you go too fast... ...and brake too hard. with feedback to help you drive safer. giving you the power to actually lower your cost. unfortunately, it can't do anything about that.
8:19 am
now that you know the truth... are you in good hands?
8:20 am
8:21 am
we like drip coffee, layovers- -and waiting on hold. what we don't like is relying on fancy technology for help. snail mail! we were invited to a y2k party... uh, didn't that happen, like, 20 years ago? oh, look, karolyn, we've got a mathematician on our hands! check it out! now you can schedule a callback or reschedule an appointment, even on nights and weekends. today's xfinity service. simple. easy. awesome. i'd rather not. >> we're supposed to be going after al-qaeda, but over years now, not only have we not gone after al-qaeda who is stronger
8:22 am
today than they were in 9/11, our president is supporting al-qaeda. >> we've captured 100% of the caliphate and we've done a big job on al-qaeda and everybody else. so for her to make that statement is ridiculous, frankly. neil: all right. was that a little over the top, congresswoman now running for president, tulsi gabbard, to accuse the president of the united states actually supporting al-qaeda? obviously the president disagreed with that. joining me, retired u.s. marine corps commissioner jerry good afternoon. >> good afternoon. neil: happy to have you on board ap thank you for your help. let me get, first of all, your sense of this back and forth of al-qaeda and leading aside the ridiculous of the president supporting it. but the notion that it's alive and well, it's not dead, it's not gone. what did you make of that? >> well, we're three
8:23 am
administrations into fighting al-qaeda and just a couple of days ago we found out that osama bin laden's son groomed for position of power for that organization was killed. the thing about al-qaeda, they're like a spider web, if you cut off one, others are alive and well. we've been at these groups so long. ins an international organization equipped with fighters and doctors and lawyers and leave on sabbatical to go fight. it's an ideological war and that's why it's so hard to fight and argument over what the right strategy should be. i don't think there's anything gained for tulsi gabbard taking exception to the president with saudi arabia and al-qaeda: there's plenty to criticize when it comes to the president and saudi arabia, or gabbard.
8:24 am
are we going to say that al-qaeda is an enemy we're all trying to get rid of. neil: you know, joey, dealt with this in brutal ways, but i see these terrorist groups that morph into other groups and they become other threats and is that the issue here, whether you call it al-qaeda or some other group, that they always evolve and that's what we have to worry about? >> well, there's the politics of these groups and then there's the people of these groups, not unlike political parties in various countries around the world. there are displaced people that are desperate and willing to give their lives for it and then there are puppet masters that have money and means and looking for ways to disrupt countries or fight against the u.s. for any reasons. one is the victim of the other in some ways. probably the about earn that planted the bomb that took my leg was probably told something rather than true. and we're chasing the people in
8:25 am
power that are corrupt and brain washing people and we're fighting the people that are brain washed. al-qaeda is going to take various forms to stay alive because the people with power in these organizations understand that. if it's isis today and al-qaeda tomorrow or vice versa, they're looking for places that are vulnerable and people that are vulnerable to stand these fights and cause the ripples across the world. >> and swinging halfway around the worrell and focus on hong kong for the time being. you might have heard, obviously, ongoing protests continued and the chinese promised to crack down on the protests and some live shots are coming into the news room right now out of hong kong and one of those cities are crowded authorities say we don't say this is a good idea. the response is it's still there. they haven't pulled the trigger quite literally. what do you think of all of this? >> i think it's something where we have to sit back and look and
8:26 am
say, now, what an amazing time to be living in the united states of america, where we can go out and protest and anything shy of antifa and white supremacist is acceptable. meanwhile, halfway around the world, an economic power that is basically suppressing people they're willing to risk their life to speak their minds. i'm far from an expert in chinese policy. i've studied it enough at georgetown to know they kind of like to have their cake and eat it to. a communist country with the economic and found a way to take advantage of systems around the world and people in hong kong trying to have a semblance of freedom. in 2019 we're watching this, one of the major powers in the world and yet, we're calling oppression, whether or not we have bathrooms whether we have bathrooms that are nonbinary.
8:27 am
and my opportunity to say how lucky am i to be born in this country. i've seen some of the worst places and come home to it, and talk about there's enough bathrooms as opposed to people having basically human rights. neil: you know, joey, i've asked this of people and this is the best response. thank you for all you've done for this country, and all you've done for it. >> thank you, sir. neil: congressman elijah cummings is getting ready to speak in baltimore, talking about that city and what's happened to intensifies. but perhaps this year, a more exhilarating endeavor awaits.

who used expedia to book the vacation rental which led to the discovery that sometimes a little down time can lift you right up. expedia. everything you need to go. >> all right, we've been keeping up with what's happening in hong kong now. these pictures are coming out of the city, one of the more crowded cities. this were protests earlier, that's actually the most crowded city on the planet, per capita. and this is a similar crowd with pro democracy protesters have gathered. security forces under direction from chinese authorities have told them to stop gathering. as i've mentioned before, they're not heeding that advice and they're promising to continue this, arguing all sorts of things, including the arrest and no updates on a number of
8:32 am
their fellow protesters. 55 arrested over the last 24 hours and they're wanting to know where did they go? did some of them disappear? and this, of course, on the heels of prior protests, seen tf protests over an extradition agreement that if you're picked up in hong kong or questioning, they ship you to china for such questioning. they shelved that plan, but they didn't relove it. and that's an argument that they have no intention of formally ending the practice altogether. so we're keeping an eye on that, very, very closely. back to this country and baltimore maryland where understanding that congressman elijah cummings plans to speak at what they're calling nature place states. rehabilitated from a dumping
8:33 am
ground. and this on an ongoing feud over the conditions of this city. joining me is former maryland governor. good to have you. >> hey, buddy, how are you? good to see you again. neil: let me ask you about baltimore and as you see it. the dire poverty and some of the issues the president raised, is that on elijah cummings? >> well, the president-- no. the president hits back, as you know, neil. regardless of creed or color or party or race, when you're attacked and obviously the democratic leadership and using the r-word and impeachment, the i-word. the president always hit back. it doesn't matter your station in life, whether you're a congressional leaders or a hollywood celebrity. so, one, i think this is sort of misplayed by the national press. this is a president that's m-o. you've reported on it for years. when he's hit he's going to hit
8:34 am
back regardless of the accuser, so to speak. neil: shouldn't the president be different? do you think a president should be held to a higher standard? >> well, i think whether you like him or not, whether you support him or not. agree with him or not, neil, this is his m-o. this is-- >> would it be yours, governor? i've never heard you talk like that. >> it's not mine. no, it's not mine. it's not mine, but i'm not going to dictate to a politician or present politician. and that's his m-o and what he does and everybody knows it, neil. with regard to baltimore, obviously, a lot of familiar problems. in my view, the denominator is, it's fatherlessness and continually failing public schools, and once you have-- once schools fail, in my view, everything else follows. working class, middle class folks simply do not want to live-- a lot of folks cannot afford to send their kids to private school. what do they do?
8:35 am
they move out. and everywhere the schools have been a particular problem over the year in addition to the proliferation of small gangs, neil. we're not talking about the major gangs, but they're here as well. but in baltimore it's unique. there are a lot of small gangs and police cannot control them. they have their own rules of the road. you walk on the wrong corner you're shot, you're dead. it's very decentralized drug issue in this town, drug industry i should say, in this town. when you add the familiar ills, you have a city in decline and baltimore has been in decline for decades. neil: the president has a good argument when he talks about his action maybe to your point, his controversial words. african-american unemployment is the lowest it's ever been, and unemployment in general closest to the low it's ever been. wage gains for african-americans are eclipsing though.
8:36 am
>> criminal justice reform, a major bill. neil: so do you think that he rips that by saying some of the stuff that he does, it squashes the otherwise positive message? >> yes, i mean, obviously for those of us who support him and i support him a thousand percent, supported him last time, support him next time. at times when we talk about the personality conflict, you step on your message. this record, as you just articulated and i would add again, criminal justice reform, the first major bill. neil: a better example. >> a serious, substantive positive record about progress and the minority communities generally, neil. i would love to be on your show today talking about this, obviously, about the facts of the last two and a half years, rather than the personality conflict between a democratic leader and the president. but again, whenever there's conflict, people are going to report it and that's your job, i get that, but hopefully at some
8:37 am
point, sometime, we can get back to the substance. i know it's a silly season, democratic primaries out there, everybody using the r-word and accusations, no progress. frustrates me, however, i had a fit over baltimore city schools ten years ago as governor. i was to we'll take care of our own schools. and the kids with their constitutional rights, here we are decade later, sam schools, same cry we need more money, more money. we need radical change in baltimore. radical property tax change. we need charismatic leader. rudy guiliani did it in new york and we need that leader to emerge, i don't care what party or what color. neil: governor, thanks for taking the time. we appreciate it. >> good to see you, neil.
8:38 am
neil: and we talked about the political landscape, one fellow didn't get as much press, even though he tried to get in the middle of the progressive onslaught, former congressman delaney, businessman by experience and pragmatic he says in his gut and he's worried about his party and the message that it's sending. that's coming up. >> why do we have to be the party of taking something away from people. >> nobody is-- >> they're running on, they're running on telling half the country that your health insurance is illegal, it says it right in the bill. >> we're not about trying to take away health care from anyone. that's what the republicans are trying to do. iend, antonio. his luxurious fur calms my nerves when i'm worried about moving into our new apartment. why don't we just ask geico for antonio! fetch computer! antonio? i'll get it. get to know geico and see how much you could save on renters insurance.

since you're heading off to dad... i just got a zerowater. but we've always used brita. it's two stage-filter... doesn't compare to zerowater's 5-stage. this meter shows how much stuff, or dissolved solids, gets left behind. our tap water is 220. brita? 110... seriously? let me guess. zero? yup, that's how i know it is the purest-tasting water. i need to find the receipt for that. oh yeah, you do. the way you triumph over adversity. and live your lives. that's why we redesigned humira. we wanted to make the experience better for you. now there's less pain immediately following injection. we've reduced the size of the needle and removed the citrate buffers. and it has the same effectiveness you know and trust. humira citrate-free is here. a little change can make a big difference.
8:41 am
humira can lower your ability to fight infections. serious and sometimes fatal infections, including tuberculosis, and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened, as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. ask your doctor about humira citrate-free. here's to you. >> welcome back, everybody. we're going to go to las vegas right now. the 2020 democrats are getting ready to make their case for union voters just in a few moments. one of the candidates attending this forum, a yellow who got a lot of buzz from the first night of debate earlier in detroit this week and that's the former congressman and businessman john delaney who joins us now on the phone. congressman, very good to have
8:42 am
you. >> great to be here with you, neil. neil: you know, you've got a lot of response, critical praise, helped to raise a good deal of money within the first 24 hours higher do you think that's goin? >> in the right direction. we need 2% in and we have. and we have to get the donors, a a requirement. we had more donation than the prior months. neil: did you feel you were going against the grain, congressman, you're still a progressive guy, but you were kind of telling some of your colleagues, elizabeth warren and bernie sanders and others, we have to dial back on this a bit and we've got to pay for this. and you were admonished by elizabeth warren, don't tell me what we can't do.
8:43 am
what do you think of that reaction? >> i think when you can't defend your policies on the merits, you end up saying things like that's a republican talking point. or you say things like you're not being ambitious enough. so, i view those as kind much lazy, dishonest responses to legitimate questions about policies that they're putting forth that are misguided and more importantly, they don't represent where most americans are. i mean, they're running on a platform that may appeal to a minority of the democratic party, but it's not even close to appealing to what the majority of the american people want. neil: i'm wondering, congressman, if that's even typical of the democratic party, that they might be alienating themselves from the party voters themselves, let alone the general electorate? >> yeah, i mean, if you look at democratic presidents since world war ii, every one of them has been a center left democrat and as i said in my opening
8:44 am
statement the other night, you know, we had, with mcgovern, mondale and dukakis we saw what happened. with bill clinton and barack obama, we put forward candidates who were more center left democrats, which is where most democrats are and certainly where most of the american people are. i think the choice is clear for the democratic party. do we want to beat donald trump? the answer is yes, we have to put up a candidate who is running on stuff that majority of the american people find interesting and at the end of the days those are common sense, pocket book issues. neil: i haven't had a chance, congressman to talk to you since the debate, but i did want to get your reaction to the new york mayor bill deblasio said we're democrats, we want to tax the hell out of the wealthy. what did you think of that? >> i was actually travelling the night of the second deeb so i
8:45 am
didn't watch it. neil: that's what he said, take my word for it. >> i believe wealthy americans should pay more in taxes. the way i want to do it is by making the capital gains rate equal to the ordinary income rate. i see no reason people who invest for a living should pay less than people who work for a living. and by closing that loophole will gra create a more tax system and generate more revenue from wealthy americans. that's a common sense way in creating more equity by the tax code. does anyone think that the wealthy won't invest in their capital gains are the same as regular? that's ridiculous. neil: your take on it, democrats don't talk about it much and as you pointed out republicans don't talk about it much. does that fact alone, the fact
8:46 am
that it's expo tensinentially g and at a minimum. what do you think? >> i think it's terrible, immoral. i think we're supposed to leave the world better than we found it. one day our kids or grandkids will worry about this. and the period of incredibly low interest rates we've lived in the last decade wasn't always be the case and interest on the debt will crowd out the other important priorities and prevent the next generation of americans from investing both in our nation and things like research, infrastructure, in our military, every priority any americans cares about will be negatively affected by this when we enter into the environment. no one knows when it will happen. none way it will happen. neil: congressman, you deserve

to be heard and if they hear what you have to say, pretty sound ideas. thank you. thank you, neil. nice talking to you. neil: we continue to watch the hong kong protests. these could escalate. the big issue, if we can't trust the chinese to hold back, what can we trust them on trade? and how after this. my experience with usaa 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.

>> welcome back, everybody. i'm neil neil. we are focusing on hong kong for good reason. the protests could continue there, but what's interested in the populated city in hong kong, it wasn't supposed to be going on. chinese authorities said we don't think it's a good idea. for the tenth weekend in a row,
8:51 am
hong kong residents are fighting over apprehension of a number of protesters, 55 in the latest go-round. a lot of the other protesters want to know what's going on with them. where are they? and this occurs when we tighten the screws with with china when it comes with the ongoing trade talks or the lack thereof shall the president essentially putting tariffs on the remaining goods we get from china, the 10% levies. if you can't trust them when it comes to trade? can you trust them with rising insurrections going on? and with us is charles payne, jonas max ferris and deirdre bolton. >> that's are civil servants. these aren't just students. not that we would ignore students. but these are people who work

for the government, a lot of from accounts, they're middle aged and have government jobs. this isn't the profile of a fire starter. i think this underlines how seriously-- for some people, i've spent time in the region, it's kind of like new york, they want to be there, they wan to run their business, they want to make money and they don't want a lot of political fuss. i think this is different/scary and extraordinarily bad pr or china. and you have to think people in taiwan are watching this, hong kong was trying to pay by the rules and china couldn't leave them alone, i think this is the time for china to look good, but it's horrible. neil: and we worry about tiananmen square and if it happens like that, then what? >> i think we should worry in part. video surfaced this week of the people's liberation army, the
8:53 am
main garrison in hong kong practicing riot maneuvers with paints and the commander there saying that they have seen an up tick in extreme violence. in other words, laying the groundwork the justification for that going on. that has not been the case. what i like about this now, initially you felt, okay, the protests, the idea that any hong kong citizen could be called to mainland china to face their judicial system. no one wants to face that. the argument when they first said, okay, well, china will-- hong kong will eventually go back to china 50 years. the idea that maybe hong kong can influence china and i was thinking maybe that couldn't happen, wouldn't happen. who knows if this goes on and enough people in mainland china get a whiff of it, maybe it could change the pendulum in that country as well. neil: jonas, we had on gordon chang, written about china and china threat and at its core china remains a military entity,
8:54 am
more than a capitalist juggernaut as i said, and will respond as such. >> things are dinner from 30 years ago. their own wealth and success might make it hard to act that way. and what the people are not going to put up with anymore. and like protests here. if the rest of the country was run like hong kong, we wouldn't be in a trade war. i'm wondering if that made the people to revolt. it's like they're weaker now, china. you can't get away with the way you behaved 20, 30 years. in hong kong they can use facebook and-- >> you can't in chinaments and that element makes it difficult to do a tiananmen square in hong kong. neil: deirdre, you can look at this and say we have not use this had as a wedge in talking to the chinese on trade obviously by design, but that
8:55 am
could change, too? >> that could change, too, it seems there are new trading agreements drawn up even between japan and south korea. i think the asian region is shifting a little bit and what the charles was talking about, that's a kickback from the business community. if you're running a competing company, oh, yeah, he's embezzling stuff and put in the clinker in china and never heard from again and my business quadruples. neil: thank you for coming in on saturday. much appreciate it. charles works like seven days a week anyway, so whatever. we're monitoring this and monitoring protests in moscow. we didn't get into that, but we will. fox news continues after this. oh delicious. or delicious... or fun. ♪ but since you need both car and home insurance,
