it was prior to this meeting. base is in alabama and south carolina and states like that. so, okay, they're going to go have a negotiation. >> he came out very pro-lgbtq, i think that's important. my major point here is this as you remember the banner, and we are an inclusive party, and week? leland: got it. >> at camp david? that's what we have to be -- leland: the timing point you make is an important one, and leland: is that what you have to be in virginia? president trump has talked about >> or we're not going to win. right now we're not looking optics and timing before. you guys are going to deal with good -- leland: what about the this when you come back and the statehouse? you've got 29 districts in your president saying the war's going district. >> yeah, 29 delegates. to continue. there's one thing. the other issue's going to be and, you know, when you're talking about that, we have to border funding. really worry about not only the president's been diverting funds from the military, from fundraising, but also again, the pentagon to build the border going out to the con stitch weapons, making sure -- wall. is there a negotiation to be had on this, or is it better for constituents, but also we just don't have enough people running democrats politically, it seems, so it's a real surprise that we to just keep saying no money for just don't have enough people the wall, no money for the wall, engaged -- leland: the republican party's no money for the wall? really dying. >> it's not dying -- >> i think there's something leland: on life support. far, far more important than the >> that's why we started a pac wall here, and that is the way the president has -- in this to fund our candidates. process -- usurped the power of we don't want virginia to become the purse, the constitutional like our congress.ongressman, ad power of congress to appropriate money. it is the responsibility of the to see you. administration, this president we appreciate it. thanks for making the drive up

i served in afghanistan just before i became a congressman. do you mind not being a mo-tour? someone who i served with didn't come home, and for 18 years -i do. we've been doing the same thing for those who were born to ride, there's progressive. every single year, and this president is the president who -- and in the most -i do. responsible way, has been trying to find the best way out, the best path forward to bring our jill jill has entresto, and a na heart failure pill troops home and leave a situation in afghanistan that's that helped keep people alive better than when we found it. and out of the hospital. don't take entresto if pregnant; gillian: since the president raised the specter of something it can cause harm or death to an unborn baby. that could have happened but don't take entresto with an ace inhibitor didn't, we have a little more or aliskiren or if you've had angioedema with an ace or arb. room here, let's play the scenario out. let's say an american hadn't the most serious side effects are angioedema, died and the president had decided, for whatever reason, to low blood pressure, kidney problems, go forward with the talks, we or high blood potassium. woke up today, they were ask your doctor about entresto. underway. if we came out with a deal, right, on the other end -- let's where to next? say we didn't even come out with a deal but made progress, would it be worth it to hold these talks at camp david just three days before the 9/11 when the memory so fresh in service members' minds? >> let's set the timing and location aside, and for a moment
realize that when we're dealing with the taliban, as dangerous as they are, the deaths that they've been responsible for in afghanistan of american troops, of nato troops, of afghan citizens, what we're dealing with with the taliban is mickey mouse, a mickey mouse operation compared to what we would be dealing with with isis, with -- gillian: today the, right. >> as isis rises up and poses a much more sophisticated threat, this administration, secretary pompeo made very clear the president understands in that we have to bring some -- this that we have to bring some level of agreement with the taliban together so that we can fight the real threat that exists with a rising isis and with still a remaining threat offal tide and other dangerous actors. -- of hi. al-qaeda. any deal that was crafted with the taliban would bring together maria ramirez! the afghan government with taliban entities to try to create more of the civil society there so with we have a better mom! maria! ally and teammate to do what we have to do to destroy isis.
maria ramirez... gillian: take a listen to your mcdonald's is committing 150 million dollars republican colleague, adam in tuition assistance, kinzinger, on our air just less education, and career advising programs... than an hour ago. want to get your reaction to prof: maria ramirez this. mom and dad: maria ramirez!!! >> to bring the taliban, i mean, to help more employees achieve their dreams. i was actually quite sickened to learn that taliban leaders were coming to the united states of america, not that far away from new york city, frankly. and they have yet to renounce 9/11, they have yet to renounce terror. that they would be not only in the united states, but in a place of honor at camp david was quite shocking. gillian: so he says he was sickened by this, and he seems to be making the case that the timing and the location is everything. >> after 18 years we can't keep doing what we've been doing, and that's what i appreciate about president trump. shortly after he was elected, he announced a new strategy in afghanistan. that strategy has evolved to where we are today. chris: i'm chris wallace. president trump cancels a secret meeting with the taliban and we can't move forward and calls off peace negotiations. continue to keep operating in finish we'll talk live with the the same, at the same level with secretary of state. more of a nation-building ♪ strategy in afghanistan that ♪
hasn't worked and appears will >> we're talking to the taliban, never work. we're talking to the government, that's why we have to bring some we'll see if we can do something. level of agreement together with chris: those talks now in the taliban. question after the president i'm sure that adam has been aware for over a year that these calls off a secret summit days after an agreement in principle negotiations have been taking place. he and i have talked about that with the taliban that would pull thousands of u.s. troops out of before. both of us are skeptical that the taliban will ever keep their afghanistan. and iran taking new steps to word, and i think that's what break out of the nuclear deal bother -- for good reason. i think that's what bothers all while president trump raises the possibility of a meeting with of us about the images that would have come out of any camp iran's president. >> we're going the see what happens. they want to talk, they want to david talks. but what's far more important make a deal. chris: than that is whether we can ever come to agreement with the taliban so we can focus on the greater threat in afghanistan, which is isis and other powerful entities. ville jill very quickly, we're already out of time, kind of yes or no, what do you think about the president's proposal to bring 5,000 more u.s. troops home? >> well, i think that's -- no matter what we do, bringing troops home and away from afghanistan creates a more dangerous situation there as we try to confront a rising isis. i was just back in afghanistan late last year, the troops, the
leaders on the ground are talking about the greater and growing threat of isis there, and we need counterterrorism troops. we need a bigger and better strategy, and that's what the president understands and is trying to get to. gillian: congressman, thanks for joining us. we appreciate your perspective. >> good to be here. leland: thousands in in the bam has are still searching for loved ones. water and food is squares. conditions for those still alive desperate. ellison barber live in nassau where the rescue effort's being coordinated from. hi, ellison. >> reporter: hey, leland. we made it yesterday to grand bahama, that is one of two areas hit hardest by hurricane dorian. we landed in free port, one of the most populated areas in grand bahama, and then we traveled about 45 minutes to the east side of the island, and there we found total devastation. this area is called high rock, grand bahama, said to be one of
the highest points, the highest point on the island are. the people who live here tell us that there used to be about 85 moments, now only 8, maybe 9 are stillen stand thing. for the most part, it looks like this; rubble, homes without roofs, homes without walls. next to this white p tent is where people who live here say 17 people died in a home that collapsed. they say many of them were family members. one person in this small town essentially lost his entire family. seventeen people dead in high rock when hurricane dorian rolled through. people say they had to rescue their neighbors out of trees, grab their hand and try and pull them in as the storm came through, as the winds raged, as the water levels got higher and higher, and some were saved, but here they say 17 people lost their lives, many more lost their homes. >> i heard -- [inaudible] >> go on.
>> 17 person out of my town is dead. that's unprecedented. >> reporter: there are only about 300 people living in that settlement. that man you just heard from, his name is cecil kemp. he said that the deputy prime minister of the bahamas came to their neighborhood a few days ago. the bodies of those 17 people have been moved. for the most part, people are relying on each other, neighbors just helping neighbors. we saw one nonprofit in high rock, it was called reach out worldwide. they were delivering water with the help of the rotary club. they a heard there was a baby somewhere on the east side of the island without formula, a four-month-old baby. they had driven neighborhood to neighborhood looking for that baby. they told me they found it in high rock, and they were able to get that formula as well as other baby supplies they bought the day before to that child. that group, reach out worldwide, they were the only nonprofit we saw on grand bahama in the less
inhasinhabitedded area. smaller communities where they were hit incredibly hard where they still have no cell service, many with little water and food, they're trying to ration their food out for the next week, they were the only people there. other than the deputy prime minister visiting, they haven't seen a whole lot of help, not a lot of nonprofits have been able to make it that far at this point in time because so many roads are blocked off and difficult to travel there. leland: think how many people are also still trying to search for loved ones through all of that. ellison barber from nassau, thank you very much. gillian? gillian: pro-democracy protesters marching to the u.s. consulate in hong kong and calling for international support for their cause. jonathan hunt is tracking it all on the ground. jonathan? >> reporter: gillian, tens of thousands turn out on the streets of hong kong with a

of natural resources made several rescues from the vessel at multiple points. 20 of the 24 people onboard have been rescued at this time. as smoke and flames began to appear, our crews along with the glenn county heavy rescue team assessed that the situation was too risky to further go inside the vessel to attempt to locate the four individuals who remain missing at this time. we are working with the coast guard salvage engineering and response team, the surveyor and the company to stabilize the vessel. once salvage professionals have determined the vessel to be stable, we will identify the best option to continue our rescue efforts for the four crew members who remain onboard. i have met with commander norm whit, captain of the port of

damn hypocrites. this all started with the costars of will and grace appearing to call for the blacklisting of stars in hollywood who attended a fundraiser for trump. we bring in the host of the katie halper show, nice to see you both. john, start with you since you're out there. typically hollywood is this competition of collective wokeness. what's changed, do you think, all of a sudden? >> i don't know, but they need to go to diversity training, both of them, eric mccormack and debra messing. they're -- i know a number of republicans in hollywood, and they do keep quiet. they say it is oppressive, and you don't speak out about it. they actually have private clubs. and there's a lot of republicans in hollywood, way more than you think, they just can't speak out loud. terrible discrimination and oppression. leland: one conservative in
hollywood -- i won't label him a republican or not but certainly someone who is of the conservative mindset, is john o'hurley of "seinfeld" fame. this is what he told me about the will and grace costars as this story began. take a listen. >> i'm embarrassed both of them, and i'll say in the because i know them both, and i've worked with debra before. they do wonderful work, but they're pushing a case that a falls apart from the sheer weight of its lunacy. as though the hollywood community needs to be purged of this social and intellectual hygiene problem called conservative thinking. leland: all right, katie. >> well, i think it's great that everyone on fox news and conservatives are condemning mccarthyism which is, to me, a very bad thing -- leland: hold on. i mean, it's an important point. what you're saying is that attempting the blacklisting of conservatives in hollywood is akin to mccarthyism. >> no, not at all. i'm just happy that you guys are using that as a framing of
something negative. now, part of the reason i know this is because my great uncle was blacklisted. he spent the rest of his life selling medical equipment, is so i understand what it is. this is not blacklisting. saying that you would like to know publicly about who is paying a lot of money to attend a donald trump fundraiser is not blacklisting. these are not marginalized people who are going to lose their livelihood. leland: this is what mccormack said after a number of people came out strongly, he said i absolutely do not support blacklists or discrimination of any kind. he says i am holding myself responsible for making educated and informed decisions that i can morally and ethically stand by, and to do that, transparency's essential. he says decisions that i can morally and ethically stand by, decisions to do what? if he's going to choose not to work with people -- >> well, lee not hiring
people -- leland: he could say whether he would work with them or not. >> that's okay. do you honestly think republicans in hollywood ooh going to -- are going to kill themselves or be unable to make a living? >> you know what he wants to do. >> what? >> he wants to start a blacklisting, of course he does. >> he can't start it -- >> he wants to start a social media mob that will browbeat all the executives -- >> why do you have to -- [inaudible] leland: wait, wait, wait a second.
