tv Shepard Smith Reporting FOX News August 20, 2019 12:00pm-1:00pm PDT
that's a big "if," frankly. the fed shouldn't be cutting. i would say, at a minimum 100 basis points. not at one time, but over a period of time. while, i'm not talking about doing anything at this moment, but our indexing is something that a lot of people have liked for a long time, and it's something that would be very easy to do. a lot of people have been talking about indexing for many years, and it's something that i am certainly thinking about. i can say that a majority of the people in the white house, at the level that does this kind of thing, they like indexing. so it is something i'm thinking about. payroll taxes, i've been thinking about payroll taxes for a long time. whether we do it now or not, it's not being done because of recession, because we are legitimately, if we had a cut in
interest rates by the feds, if they would do their job properly, and a meaningful cut, because they raise too fast, you would see growth like you have not seen ever in this country. now, if you go from the election, the great november 8th day, if you go from november 9th to present, you are talking about an almost 60% increase in the stock market. you are talking about unemployment numbers that are the lowest in history in many categories. i think it was 1969, we are set to surpass that number. our country is doing very, very well. when i spoke to the president, who was just walking in, he said, congratulations on the great success of your economy and your country. our country is doing very well.
>> forces in romania? >> president trump: it's one of the things will be talking about today. i would assume you would have figured that out. >> would you like to have vladimir putin back in the g7, back in the g8 again? >> president trump: it was the g8 and now it's the g7. i guess, president obama, because putin outsmarted him, president obama thought it wasn't a good thing to have russia in, so he wanted russia out. but i think it's much more appropriate to have russia in. it should be the g8, because a lot of the things we talk about have to do with russia. i would be disposed to think about it very favorably. but as you know, for most of the
time, it was the ga, that included russia. president obama didn't want to russia and, because he got outsmarted. well, it's not the way that really should work. >> in this meeting, will you discuss it? >> president trump: we have spent a lot of time on it. we have spent a lot of time discussing it already. our countries have been discussing it. we are taking it up in a very important meeting. you like the idea? it sounds like you like the idea. the waiver. do you like the idea? no, it's something we're thinking about. we are in touch. we are talking to various representatives of venezuela. we are helping venice well as much as we can. we are staying out of it, it needs a lot of help. it's an incredible tribute to
something bad happening, and something bad is socialism. it's amazing, because 15 years ago, it was one of the wealthiest countries. now, it's one of the poorest countries. it has oil reserves, it has a lot of things going. it's a bad thing what's happening. they don't have water, they don't have food. we are helping a lot. we are talking to representatives at different levels of venezuela. i don't want to say who, but we are talking at a very high level. >> what is the trade deal? >> president trump: i spoke with boris johnson, i think he's going to be a great prime minister. he's done a great job. i know him. a lot of people know that we have a very good relationship. i think he'll be far superior. i think you'll do something that will be a, i think he's going to be very important for the u.k. i think he's going to be very important. dealing with the european union, i hate to say this to you, but dealing with the european union is very difficult. they drive a hard bargain.
they are represented by john cloyd, who is a friend of mine, but he's a tough man. he's a very, very tough man, is a great negotiator. all we have to do is tax our cars, and they would give us anything they we wanted. they send millions of mercedes over. we are talking to the european union. we are going to see if we can work something out. but i will say this. dealing with the u.k., they have not treated the u.k. very well. that's a very tough bargain they are driving, the european union. it's a very tough bargain. and i think that the u.k. has the right man in charge right now, the right person in charge in the form of boris. >> what is your current position on pulling out of the united states? >> president trump: we are talking to the government of
afghanistan. we are talking to the towel abound, we are talking to others. we are looking at different things. we've been there for 18 years. it's ridiculous. we have taken it down a notch. we are at about 13,000 people right now, 13,000 americans. nato has some trips there too, by the way. and we are having good discussions. we'll see what happens. we'll see what happens. look, it's 18 years. we are not really fighting. we are almost more of a police force over there. it's been so many years. but we are like a police force. we are not supposed to be a police force. as i've said, and i'll say it any number of times, and this is not using nuclear, we could win that war in a week, but we wanted to fight it. but i'm not looking to 10 million people. i'm not looking to kill
10 million afghans, and i'm not looking to do that, but it's a war that has been going on for almost 19 years now, and frankly, it's ridiculous. but with that being said, it's a dangerous place, and we have to always keep an eye on it. i'd like to look at various alternatives. one of the alternatives is going on right now. we're talking about a plan. i don't know whether or not the plan is going to be acceptable to me. maybe it's not going to be acceptable to them. but we are talking. we have good talks going, and we'll see what happens. this is more than other presidents have done. but we have brought it down. we are bringing some of our troops back. but we have to have a presence, yes. >> mr. president, can you clarify your position on background checks? after el paso and dayton, you seemed to be fully in support. you seemed to suggest that we already do have strong background laws, which a lot of people read as you dialing back. >> president trump: i'm not
doing that to be cute. we have very strong background checks right now. but we have sort of missing areas, areas that don't complete the whole circle. and we are looking at different things, and i have to tell you that it it is a mental problem, and i've cited 100 times, it's not the gun that pulls the trigger. if the person that pulls the trigger. these are sick people and its also that kind of a problem. we are looking at mental institutions, which we used to have. they closed up almost all of their mental institutions, or many of them, and those people just went onto the streets. they did it for budgetary reasons. new york is not unique. they've done that in many places. >> have you supported the house bills that were passed? >> president trump: i'm not going to get into that, but we are having meaningful discussions with the democrats. i think republicans are very unified. we are very strong in our second amendments. the democrats are not strong at all in their second amendment.
i would say they are weak on their second amendment. we have to be careful of that. the democrats, i would believe that they would give up the second amendment. a lot of the people that put me where i am are strong believers in the second amendment, and i am also. we have to be very careful about that. you know, they call it the slippery slope. all of a sudden, everything gets taken away. we are not going to let that happen. >> well, i hope so. >> president trump: what is your question? so nice to have a question about romania. sure, i will. sure, i will.
but i think that this is a man who can solve the corruption problem in romania. he's made big strides, from what i hear. he has made very big strides, and i think he's the man that can solve the corruption problem. there are a number of really terrific countries, like romania, but they have a tremendous corruption problem, and i've heard, you've made tremendous progress. >> do still support -- >> president trump: we are talking to republicans about it. it probably could be a penny wise. maybe it's a penny wise, but we'll see. but we are looking at it, and some things are on the table. we'll let you know over the next, probably sooner than a week. >> easier to discriminate
against lgbt people in the workforce. are you okay with a question mark >> president trump: i just got an award and an endorsement yesterday from the exact group. you saw that. they gave me the endorsement yesterday, and i was very honored. i was very honored to receive it. i've done very well with our community. some of my biggest supporters are of that community, and i think they, and i talk to them a lot about it. i think i've done really very well with our community. as you know, peter thiel and so many others here, they are with me all the way, and they like the job i'm doing. i just got a big endorsement from the log cabin group. >> trade war with china. some economists disagree withar. number one, we are doing very well. but somebody had to take china
on. you know, i read and i see so much, and i read so much. i'll see these economists saying, oh, give up on china. give up. china has been ripping this country off for 25 years, for longer than that. it's about time, whether it's good for our country or bad for our country short-term, long-term, it's imperative that somebody does this. whether it's good or bad, short term irrelevant. we have to solve. that doesn't include intellectual property theft and other things. also national security. so i am doing this whether it's good or bad for your statement recession?
my life would be a lot easier if i didn't take china on, but i like doing it, because i have to do it. we are getting great results. frankly, i don't want that to happen. it does put us in a good negotiating position. china wants to make a deal. that's good, but they have to make a deal that is fair to us. they can't make a deal that is fair to us. you should be happy that i'm fighting this. i don't think it's sustainable to let go on what is happening. theft was incredible. they call it intellectual property theft. they value it at $300 billion a year. who knows how they value it. i don't know how they value intellectual property theft. they say it's at least
$300 billion a year, where they steal it. somebody has to do something about it. obama should have done it, clinton could have done it. they all should have died. nobody did it. i'm doing it. what do you say? oh, my trade deals are causing. my trade deals aren't causing a problem. this is something that had to be done. we have no choice but to do it. people that love our country are saying, thank you very much for taking it on. it's only going to get worse. china has lost 2 million jobs in the last month and a half. people come of the companies are moving to nontariff countries. they have lost over 2 million jobs in a very short period of time. they are going to lose a lot more jobs, and if i did it help
certain companies, american companies like apple, for a very short period of time, i may help them, only until they do with they have to do, which is probably move from china. this will be very short term. if i did it help them, i mean, they would be, they would have a big problem. here's the thing. somebody had to take on what china was doing to the united states economically. we are winning big. i took it on. and it should have been done by proved dumb at previous presidents, but i took it on, and i'm happy to do it, because it had to be done. the dumb people have no idea. and then, you have the political people. they go with the wind. but they all know, even senator schumer said, wow. trump is doing a great job with china. i couldn't believe that. but schumer things i'm doing the right thing and he's doing the right thing by saying it. because he knows that china was a big economic threat.
they were taking all of that money that they were making from us and they were building planes and ships and lots of other things. and we can't let that happen. >> there is a new study out of australia, suggesting current chinese military posture in the pacific region. it could wipe out most of u.s. bases within a number of hours. is that something that keeps you up at night? >> president trump: nothing keeps me up at night. i'll tell you. we could wipe out anything. we are the most powerful in the world. when i came into and a half years ago, we were in a very bad position. we've got $700 billion and 7:30 $8 billion. we have the strongest military in the world right now. we have rebuilt to the military. there's nobody that's even close to us militarily. not even close.
they would pay a price that they want want to pay. somebody that's being put up and respected very much. russia? yes. very respected. well, i know that mike pompeo like him very much. he could very well be. >> mr. president , do think ths was a good decision? >> president trump: they're doing that. romania is doing that. if the taliban went on to on te offensive. >> president trump: well, the taliban has no respect for the afghan government. i understand that. i know that. they haven't been getting along for a long period of time.
we have been a peacekeeper for 19 years. at one point, you have to say, that's long enough. i see young men that stop on a bomb and they lose their legs, they lose their arms, and in some cases, they lose both, and they are faced on top of it. they are living. again, we could win that, but i don't want to do what we would have to do to win it. i think most people agree with me on that. right now, what we're doing is we are negotiating with the governments, and we are negotiating with the taliban. we will see what happens from it, what's coming from it. i will say this, the taliban would like to stop fighting us. they would like to stop fighting us. they've lost a lot. but we'll see what happens. remember, it's a tough place. the soviet union became russia because of afghanistan. that's what happened. very simple. they became russia, because of afghanistan.
somebody would say, oh, well would russia go in? i would say, if they want, let them. i think they tried that before, but it didn't work out too well. nobody can be trusted. in this world, i think nobody can be trusted. that's what we have to watch. we are always going to have intelligence and we will always have somebody there. but you could say that about a lot of places. it doesn't have to be there. that does seem to be the harvard university of terrorism. it seems to be. and will always have somebody there. if the taliban were really right in what they are saying, they would have stopped that from happening, because they could stop that from happening very easily. >> india and pakistan. is that solvable? >> president trump: we've been having these talks for hundreds
of years, even under different names. cashmere is a very complicated place. you have the hindus and you have the muslims. i wouldn't say they they get along so great. that's what you have right now. and you have millions of people that want to be ruled by others, maybe on both sides, and you have two countries that haven't gotten a well for a long time. and frankly, it's a very explosive situation. i spoke to prime minister khan. they are great people and they love their countries. they are in a very tough situation. cashmere is a very tough situation. this has been going out for decades and decades. shooting. i don't mean shooting a rifle. i mean like major shooting of
heavy arms. it has been going on for a long period of time. i get along really well with both of them, as you know. prime minister was here recentl recently. i'm going to be with prime minister modi i will be with him over the weekend with friends. i think that we are helping the situation, but there is tremendous problems between those two countries, as you know. i will do the best i can to mediate or do something. great relationship with both of them but they are not exactly friends at this moment to read complicated situation. a lot has to do with religion. religion is a complicated subject. >> ilhan omar said that the united states should rethink its policy toward israel after she and congresswoman tlaib were denied entry. she decided not to. should there be any change in
u.s. aid to israel? >> president trump: no. you should see the horrible things that tlaib has said about israel. aoc plus three. that's what i call it. just take aoc plus three. you should see the things of the four of them have said about israel over the last couple of years. i mean, omar is a disaster. jewish people. i can't imagine if she has any jewish people in her district that they could possibly vote for. but what omar has said, what tlaib has said, and then yesterday i noticed for the first time, tlaib with the tears. all of the sudden, she starts with tears, tears. i don't buy it. i don't buy it. i don't buy it for a second, because i've seen her in a very vicious mood at campaign rallies, my campaign rallies before she was a congresswoman. i said who is that?
i saw a woman who was violent and vicious and out-of-control. out-of-control. all of a sudden, i see this person who is crying. because she can't see her grandmother. she could, but she didn't want to do it. a lot of people were saying that was my decision. that's a decision of israel. they could let them in if they want, but i don't think they want to. when you read the things that they've set about israel, how bad. and if you look at their itinerary before they found out, you take a look at their itinerary, it was all going to be a propaganda against israel. so i don't blame israel for doing what they did. they had nothing to do with it, but i don't blame them for doing what they did. i'm talking about all four. but these two, omar and tlaib. i think it would be a very bad thing for israel. i would not cut off aid to
israel. i can't even believe that we are having this conversation. five years ago, the concept of even talking about this, even three years ago, of cutting off aid to israel because of two people that hate israel and hate jewish people, i can't believe we're even having this conversation. where has the democratic party gone? where have they gone where they are defending these two people over the state of israel? i think any jewish people that vote for a democrat, i think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty. all right. thank you very much, everybody. >> thank you very much. thank you president. thank you has for meeting. thank you, guys. >> shepard: weil, 29 minutes there are questions and answers. among the topics, vladimir putin outsmarted president obama and he kicked him out of the ga.
of course, vladimir putin invaded and annexed it. that was the punishment. we need strong background checks. we've got to do something on strong background checks. there is bipartisan support on background checks. 90% are in favor. republicans, self identified republicans are 80% in favor. there are missing areas that don't complete the full circle. on congresswoman rashida tlaib, congresswoman representing more than 870,000 people in her district. she is violent, vicious, and out of control. she hates israel, and the jewish people. the war in afghanistan, he says is ridiculous. "afghanistan is the harvard university of terrorism and nobody in this world can be
trusted." the president of the united states from the white house today. john roberts was there. 29 minutes. john? >> you know, the president clearly had a lot on his mind today, shep that he wanted to get off. we saw ilhan omar give that press conference yesterday with tlaib. he said that it's ridiculous to consider changing the aid they need the united states gives to israel, which is due to some $3.8 billion a year. that was something that was done during the obama administration. of course, there's a lot of personal things that fly back and forth between all sides. it's not surprising that the president would take them on personally in the way that he did. i asked a question, specifically, about afghanistan and the tele- man there are a number number of people that believe that if the united states cuts a deal with the taliban, within a
very short period of time, the taliban will be back in control in afghanistan. we'll go back to a pre9/11 posture. the president was clear in saying that the taliban cannot be trusted. you wonder exactly how the negotiations are going to go. the president did say that he plans on leaving some sort of force there in afghanistan to try to keep the taliban in check. i don't know if that's a good long-term solution here or not. on the economy, the president said that he is looking at a number of tax cuts, including perhaps indexing capital gains. and a cut in the payroll tax. that was done twice before in the obama administration, as part of the economic stimulus package. but the president, then come also turning towards china, and saying look, whether or not there is some short term pain here is irrelevant. he says, what we cannot afford to do is allow the status quo to continue long-term, because that
will be to the severe detriment economically of the united states. so, i think those are pretty much the highlights there, shep. there won't be a tax cut any time soon, but he is looking at all of it and continues to be at odds with members of the squad. the one i will disagree with you only and that i thought your question and his answer were noteworthy, at minimum, when you said that the chinese could wipe out the south china sea basis. you asked him if that keeps you up at night. he said nothing keeps him up at night. >> well, he doesn't sleep a lot lot. it says that the strength of the chinese military in the pacific region, and specifically the south china sea area, a lot of missiles that were banned that the united states was.
this is one of the reasons military experts say that the united states had to get out of there. but the study of australia said that within a couple of hours, they could do so much damage that we would spend the first part of a war licking our wounds, as opposed to mounting any sort of counter offense. the president says that we have the strongest military in the world that we are continuing to build on. he did say that he doesn't think china would do that, because they would pay a price that they don't want to pay. there were some very strong words there. we talked to the president on whether or not that is a looming problem. there are a lot of experts who do believe that that is one of the critical issues and threats that the united states will face in the years to come. >> shepard: you have been a correspondent for decades. i wonder if you've ever heard a sitting member president call a sitting member of congress
violent and out of control. >> stomachs before i have not, but i'm sure in the 1800s you could probably find a number of cases of that happening. there was one member of congress who took a cane to another member of congress in the chamber. maybe this is a return to the way things used to be. i don't know. but it certainly is different than it has been for the past few decades. >> shepard: thought you, john john roberts. the news is ahead. a killer on campus, a college staffer turned up stabbed to death with a fire bomb under his car. now, the police are asking the public, please help us find the killer, as they search for a motive for this body crime. also, a hiker lost in the wilderness for five days, talking about what it took to make it back home alive, and the message he left from his pregnant wife, when he thought he was going to die. all of that, plus, the great migration of 2019.

threat, the bottle had to be manually lit. it would only stop, cause a small fire. suffering major head wounds. in fact, the blows were so hard, the suspect also suffered cuts to both of his hands. >> shepard: what more do we know about the suspect, if anything? >> so far, they have not released the suspect's admin identification. they know that he has an asian male, mid 20s with black hair. he was seen running away from the scene and then driving away in a black bmw. the surveillance video will certainly help to identify the man, but even people who were in the area really didn't see much. >> we have employees who walk to this parking during that time, around 8:30, who said they couldn't see or hear anything. >> everyone was shocked. yeah. this morning i went into the office. that's what's on everyone's min
