9:00 am
right now on "andrea mitchell reports," back to the future. donald trump, his toughest attacks yet on both clintons. >> hillary's husband abused women more than any man we know of in the history of politics. if you read what hillary did to the women bill clinton had an affair with, he was impeached about what happen with a woman. she was unbelievable, nasty and mean and what she did to a lot of those women is disgraceful. >> well, i am not going to run an ugly race. i am going to run a race based
9:01 am
on issues and the american people. >> flip-flop, trump does an 180 raising taxes on the rich and minimum wage. >> with that being said, i would like to see an increase of some magnitude but i rather leave it to the state. >> people have to go out and work really hard and get to the upper stratum, do not raise the minimum wage. >> i would not raise the minimum. >> party fouls, sarah palin ready to end paul ryan's career after he refuses to back trump. >> his political career is over but for miracle because he disrespected the will of the people. >> and good day, i am andrea mitchell in washington. donald trump firing a blast from the past using bill clinton's
9:02 am
white house scandal in the '90s to attack the front runner. >> she's married to a man who hurt many women. if you look at hillary, she hurt many women of the women he abused. >> do you remember the famous "i did not have sex with that woman" and a couple of months later, i am guilty. she's taking negative edge at me. joining me now is nbc kristen welker and katy tour. >> what is the calculus of donald trump of these two unifying the republican party and expanding the republican base, reaching out with women and dealing the gender gap and he's going after hillary clinton for what her husband did. how does that work for him? >> i am not sure of their strategy behind the scene for
9:03 am
putting women on board. i know they're trying to throw everything and the kitchen sink at hillary clinton. they're trying to attack her on her position and on benghazi and her husband's support for nafta and her husband's past and infidelity. they're doing everything they can or donald trump is doing everything he can to diminish her in every way possible. the rally we have been too so far during the primaries, those messages are being heard loud and clear and they are being cheered on. we have seen a number of folks including women wearing hillary's shirt that says frankly vulgar thing that we cannot repeat on television demeaning to hillary clinton. this is a massage that's not only heard by his supporters but celebrated by his supporters. the question is as we have been saying it over and over again, how is that going to play out in the general election when he needs to get more women on
9:04 am
board. i am told by the campaign they are looking for older white women in order to mitigate that gender gap. they don't believe they'll be able to win the female vote. >> speaking of female vote, kristin welker out there in virginia, there are republicans and independent women and a little further out on the belt way, that's where she's going to be this afternoon. >> reporter: that's right, the focus is on swing with women voters today. this is a county that voted for barack obama in 2012 and republican congress in 2014. this is a type of area where the clinton campaign needs to win and they can pick up critical swing voters today. today she will talk about child care and paid family leave and she will be trying to win over not only independence but
9:05 am
republicans. i can tell you her tactic for taking over to donald trump and responding to those attacks that you just discussed with katy tur is essentially not to respond. she's trying to pivot and turn the page and dismiss those of things in the past. every time he brings up one of those attacks, they try to redirect the conversation towards his tax policy, some of his comments on foreign policy and his controversial about women. i have been talking to surrogate who say if these attacks continue, you may see them taking on donald trump directly. bthey are calculating those attacks i going to backfire. will those attack backfire and end up rallying women voters all the more around hillary clinton who right now leaves donald trump by more than 20 points with women, andrea. >> then we have the families within the republican party. paul ryan now telling the
9:06 am
journal that he would step down as convention chair if donald trump asked him to. others are trying to organize erickson even if it is mit romney, katy, going towards that thursday meeting with paul ryan, you can think that he almost would be relieved of his position of chair of party convention where this convention is going to be, really, intention. >> in this remarkable political year keeps ons getting more remarkable and to have paul ryan come out and say he will step down from the convention. i cannot remember it happening before. but, whether that'll happen, we'll have to wait and see. they'll have that meeting later this week and we'll see if anything comes out of that.
9:07 am
i know donald trump has been on the trail saying it over and over again he was blindsided by speaker ryan not coming out and endorsing him saying they had conversations where speaker ryan had been very flattering and keeping praise on him essentially. the seeker comes out and said he only had one conversation with donald trump and that was in march contrary to donald trump portraying after the new york primary and phone call. >> they said donald trump was referring to that early march call. it does go to show you the campaign is trying to goss over these problems trying to brush them away and act like they don't matter while the republican establishment is holding donald trump to the fire as much as they can and use whatever leverage they have left. remember, donald trump may have the voters on his side, he does
9:08 am
need the establishment in order to help him build out not just a strategy for the election but a white house and all the various positions and the light that goes into running this government, andrea. >> thanks so much, katy tur and kristen welker and sarah palin calling paul ryan to be outsed. and she's threatening to end ryan's career by campaigning with his challenger in wisconsin. >> i think paul ryan is soon to be cantor as an eric cantor, his political career is over but for a miracle because he disrespected the will of the people and yeah, as the leader of the gop, the convention cent
9:09 am
certainly for him to remain neutral and for him to come out to say who who'll not support is not a wise decision. >> joining me is a republican house member from minnesota and a long time friend of paul ryan, vince, it is good to see you. >> it is exciting. >> first of all, if you are paul ryan, you basically say to the presumptive nominee, let me give you something. >> contrary to what palin said, he did not say he will be for donald trump. he said we are the party of lincoln and reagan and his mentor, i am not there yet with donald trump. donald trump should listen to that and understand that there is a bigger party than the people that nominated him. he needs to keep all the people that nominated him but he needs to explain to the rest of the republican party that he's consistent with that tradition that paul ryan laid up. if he cannot do that, he's not
9:10 am
going to unit with the party and elected as president. paul ryan made a sensible statement and made a lot of us really proud. those of us who did not support donald trump would be able to vote for him. >> in paul ryan's world view if you can channel him, what is the most important point for donald trump? is it conservative or some of the languages. >> i think it is a couple of things. paul ryan is a policy expert and he cares about trades and balancing the budget and he has not heard the right thing from donald trump on those two big issues. remember the cam part of his statement there, jack cam's vision of the world is an
9:11 am
expansion vision of republicanism where everybody is welcome and come in. the notion of building walls and deporting people and putting religious test on people is inconsistent with that vision, he got to get the public country more comfortable with him. i am talking about trump now than he has to this day. paul is a rare commodity in washington. he's a major political leader who's not a cynic. this town makes people into cynics. he goes back to wisconsin every weekend and he's an idealist and a conviction politician. donald trump needs to get comfortable with that. >> to answer the trump's allies who's saying oh, this is paul ryan trying to position themselves for 2020. >> that's because they are cynics. innermost conviction of what our country should be and our party should be and what his
9:12 am
obligations are to the leaders. i believe that at the end of the day he will come down and favor donald trump. the fact that he's wrestng says he's closer to the republican party majority than donald trump is. >> there are house members who are trump republicans who are concerned that the speakers are not representing them. >> well, we don't have a nominee yet. let's be technical. we have a presumptive nominee. there is no reason why everybody has to get behind him before the july convention. we'll see what happens this thursday when they meet and what follows up on that. the house republican are divided over whether or not they like trump or trump is good for their district. i think he's speaking from the heart. i think he's wrestling with his own innermost convictions and candidacy. >> if donald trump wants paul
9:13 am
ryan not to be the chair of the convention saying you cannot be uneven handed mediator. paul ryan seems to be saying from the initial headlines out of the milwaukee, he's basically saying okay, well, that's a gracious statement on paul ryan part. it would be a real mistake on trump. if i were trump i would say look, i know i am an outsider and i know i beat the establishment. i know that there are many republicans don't agree with some of the things i say but i take the approach of ronald reagan, if you disagree with me 20% of the time, i don't think you are my 80% enemy. let people have the space to disagree with him and still remains. >> you know gender politics, put yourself in a mind of a suburban woman. would you vote for hillary clinton or donald trump if we
9:14 am
continue to hear about these kinds of attacks on sexual politics? >> i think, i thought trump's statement about miss clinton. it sounds like october, you get to the end of the campaign and you got this small number of undecided voters and you have to go bash your opponents heavy. right now he needs to be in a positive position. there is a real difficulty in dealing this. we never flound the democrats by clinton's infidelity. they basically think that's not a political issue. >> vitamn weber, thank you very much, it is always good to see you. >> coming up, donald trump living back to the '90s for his latest attack of clinton. right here on msnbc on "andrea mitchell reports."

i have to listen to her talking about it? just remember this. she was an unbelievably nasty mean enabler and what she did to a lot of those women is disgraceful so put that in and see what happens. >> donald trump throwing the kitchen sink at hillary clinton hoping to boost her negatives by boosting up the most controversial moments of her husband. joining me now from new york, cecil, thank you for joining us. what do you think of donald trump's weekend attack on hillary and bill clinton. >> it is not surprising in a way but to see anyone who is running
9:19 am
as president of the united states to be disrespectful of women. she's a woman who has incredible experience and committed her entire life for public service and he shows her no respect. i don't think it is surprising but for him, i don't know how he thinks he's going to win the election when the majority of the voters in the country is women next november. >> is it possible that some women or perhaps younger women may not respect him for the way she stood by bill clinton and according to trump's analysis, enable, whatever that means? >> absolutely not. i have been all across the country and of supporters of hillary. this is not an issue of anyone's minds. they are not getting equal pay in this country and there is no access to affordable child care. they need access to health care.
9:20 am
we have 24 states trying to end access of birth controls. donald trump instead of addressing those, he is going after this personal attack on hillary clinton. it is absolutely not going to work. it is not what the american voters want to hear about. how are you going to fix the problem in america. hillary has laid out a clear path of things she would do as president. she does not do these crazy attacks. donald trump is someone who is completely unpredictable. he's not someone ready to be the president of the united states. >> here she is going to a swing districting in virginia today. he's campaigning an election mode right now. how is she ponding to this when he goes after her like that. >> again, i think he's digging himself further and further into a hole. he does not have a plan for america. the only thing he knows how to
9:21 am
do and it was evident in the republican primary is cut down his opponents. the american voters in november are going to look for who they want to lead this country. hillary clinton has demonstrated she's tough and ready for the job day one. when you look at the voters, andrea in november, the majority and the biggest group of voters in november are millenial voters. donald trump has turned off huge for the american people. voters and women are not going to vote for him for president of the united states. how will bill clint handle these kind of attacks. he's known for at times going off. >> well, president clinton is not on the ballot next november,
9:22 am
i feel confident that he will be able to handle the attacks he had over the years. voters in novice going to have a decision to make. women voters are not going to vote for a president who has such complete disregard not only for secretary clinton but for women at large. it was incredible this weekend to read the comments he made that somehow women have it better. tell that to planned parenthood patients who cannot get access to affordable health care in america. they need a president who respects them and stand up for them and that's hillary clinton. >> and you know going forward in this campaign, what about some of the other issues that donald trump has raised on the economy and other thing that is women going to these rallies seem to respond to. >> donald trump has taken different on every single issue. you look at issues that people
9:23 am
care about is equal pay or raising minimum wage. i think women simply cannot trust donald trump. he does not obviously respect women and is not clear on where he stands on issues. if there is no guarantee that he will maintain any positions. women know what it means to get things done and hillary clinton, her entire life has been about making progress for women whether it is fighting for equal pay or health care coverage, child care coverage or paid families leave. these are things we need not tomorrow but today. hillary clinton from the minute she's been in office will fight for androg agenda for women. cecil richards. thank you. >> thank you, andrea. >> and we are going hear from

9:35 am
complex than any business deals he's ever been involved in. i don't know how he will react to that. sometimes he appears to have a sketchy relationship, these briefs are facts based and as candidate and president, you have to absorb with a lot of information that maybe d discornant. >> can he or his supporters come back at you at some other briefer, you are required from that business and say look at hillary clinton and how casual she was in the way she handled classified information. i know a lot of people deeply distressed of the private server. >> one of the things about these briefings are non critical. you are taking it through the

9:42 am
trump which is his attachment to any policy specific is very lose at best and sort of says things in the moment and i am not sure if he changes his mind as much as he says something and reconsiders and say something else. the issue here is it appears he's moderating some and not moderating and why he's not is not entirely clear. that plays in it. what does he believe and why in broader question. >> the second big economic issue of clear change to both of you is on taxing the rich or giving them tax cuts in his plan and this is a contrast now and then. >> which is it? are you willing to raise taxes on the poi.1% or not?

9:44 am
taxes on the wealthy may be higher on his original proposal, it is the bases of whatever negotiations he ends up engargeing wiengargging in congress. it is more of a change in tone. >> the one thing that was really different no matter what attempts he makes now was what he said on cnbc last week to both of you about defaulting on u.s. debt. that was so beyond the pail and you wonder if this is the kind of thing that makes paul ryan paused before leading to endorse him? >> yes, that's the answer. andrea, i think it is more about what does he believe, you know, i think paul ryan and many other republicans understand that they're not going to agree with donald trump on every issue or anybody else. mcconnell and paul ryan have different views on these issues.
9:45 am
it is about where he's at on these issues and is he ready to defend them. can he preserve a republican party win or lose in november. the republican party that can still sort of co-exist and have a coherent belief. i think for someone like paul ryan who clearly would like to run for national office at some point, that's a threshold that they did not need to get on and whether these views necessarily are going to be sort of best represented for donald trump. but, is there something that ties it together and will he stick by it. >> on the debt, it reflects fundamental misunderstanding of the difference between corporate debt and government debt. >> right. >> and the immediate joke after his comment last week was make america argentina. the united states' government debt is a fundamentally different kind of animal and
