tv For the Record With Greta MSNBC January 26, 2017 3:00pm-4:01pm PST
this decline in trust. so let's semipositive note. it includes country like japan and belgium. back to the doomsday clock. this not closest we have been, it was set to 2 minutes to mitted night. the collapse have not happened yet. "mtp daily." "for the record" starts a little late, sorry. "for the record" war on the border. the mexican president with a stunner decide not to come to washington, d.c., hold on to seat trump has different version. no show mutual decision but it is. also, trump top adviser blasting the opposition and say the press should keep its mouth
shut. do not answer that question. the president yelling at republicans we'll tell you what happened behind the scene at today's gop retreat. president trump moving ahead at breakneck speed taking a trip to filly. speak about can sellings with the -- the president of mexico and myself have agreed to cancel the planned meeting schedule for next week. unless mexico is going to treat united states fairly with respect, such a meeting would be fruitless and i want to go a different route. we have no choice. >> hours later at the republican retreat a different foreign leader showing up from london.
british prime minister theresa may. >> -- is good for the world. an america strong and prosperous at home is a nation that can lead abroad. but you cannot and should not do so alone. >> she'll meet with president trump tomorrow. trump getting warm reception as he ticked off his agenda. >> nice to win. do we agree. it's been a while. >> this congress is go to be the busiest congress we've had in decades. our legislative work starts with repeal and replace obamacare. the american people will not pay for the wall. we're going to have a lot of trade deals. don't worry about it. we need to keep the ballot box safe from illegal voting. >> also today several top officials at the state department stepping down from
their post-s. nbc kristen welker is at the white house. >> let's tart with mexico in the wake of president trump signing executive order backlash from the president of mexico under a lot of pressure from within his own country to take a strong stand. he floated that he maybe a no show to this meeting that was schedule. these tweets today president trump saying it's better it we don't neat. then came the word from pena nieto that he going to cancel the meeting. as you mentioned president trump said today at that gop retreat it was a mutual decision. i just pressed one of the top official on that point. did they actually talk, how was this mutual decision.
i was told there was conversation back and forth between the countries throughout day. they want to meeting to take place. they are in much contact with the mexican government. but it comes amid press secretary spicer telling reports that one of the ways the president could make mexico fa for the wall is to slap 20% tax on imports that spark a lotch concerns among businesses here. that's going to drive up price of some products. moments ago he clarified that's one of a buffet how to deal with the issue. i asked if -- important relationship that the united states has. after all mexico is the u.s. third largest trading partners. response that they are confident
they will be able to resolve this. this comes as president trump says he want to renegotiate nafta. that's going to require mexico sating down at the table with him. another busy day at the white house. i anticipate friday going to be busy. >> thank you. congressman from north carolina. good evening. sir. >> good evening.. great to be with you. >> what do you make of the spat between the president mexico and the president of the united states? >> well, really, it's not really knew. when we talked about a border wall that's promise president trump made when he was campaigning to follow through on that is following you through on promise me made to the american people. when is going to pay for it and
the anticipated arrival of the mexican president, we would like to see that. when you look at some of the contects of that 20% tariff a lot of that is taking it out of context. it's really more about a boarder adjustment tax. >> who is going to pay for it? . i cannot imagine your caucus like the idea of running up pt debt. where is this money coming from? buffet of 20% tax. that went over like a lead balloon. where are we going to find this money? >> i think on that, you're right it's $15 billion speaker rye yoon talked about the fact we are fiscal conservatives we off set that with other dollars from other places.
>> where. $15 billion is a lot of money. and you know -- >> it is. >> there's has to be some plan where that money is going to come from and the president said the mexico is going to pay for it. now the president of mexico says i'm not showing up to buy coffee if your country. >> to answer your question, we talk about number of times about improper payments there's $34 billion that we sent in improper payments just on medicaid and medicare reimbursement. even looking at those improper payments when you have over trillion dollar budget, finding $15 billion should not be a difficult task. where can ewe have it. some suggested tapping into oil reserves to look at it pay for it there.
we're going to give the president to make sure he fulfills that. you will see that in the bubt as we look to rebuild military and security brd boarder. >> we may need a go fund me to fund that. >> the president seems to say people who are dreamers, he going to do -- he is not going to ship them all back. what is freedom caucus think about that? >> with have briefed we need to take a step approach about this. in the first step was secure the border, that's why you're going to see we are agreeable on building the wall to make sure we stop the problem. then from there, it's looking at our legal immigration program because what we're finding is that the reason we have this is because sometimes legally it
takes up to ten years for someone to come here that are willing to follow the rules and the lou, as we look at that it's addressing what happens in sanctuary cities making sure 19,000 people get sent back to their country. the president talked about that today, that's going to stop on his watch with the assist cans with the new secretary of state, secretary tillerson. >> i cannot imagine, they like the idea if the president writes too many executive orders. do you str any problems with this rapid fire executive orders? >> we have been looking closely to make she he is not encroaching on congresss authority. we have identified 300 orders
that he would write and correct on his own without authority from congress but again, keeping those pillars and conservative branch separate, making sure what will of people through congress gets enacted through law, not allow him to use his pen in an inappropriate manner. >> congressman, thank you sir. >> thank you, greta. the idea of tax to pay for the border wall. as notice president trump press secretary spicer said. >> tax at 50%. $50 billion at 20% which is practice that 160 countries do right now. our country policy is to tax exports and let imports flow freely in. by doing that way we can do
$10 billion a year and can easily pay for the wall. >> there's lot of ways to pay for the wall. any policy proposal which drives up, is a big time -- here what speaker ryan told me yesterday about paying for the wall. >> i know you're follow up question is mexico going to pay for the wall. there's a lot of ways to get mexico to contribute to doing this. there's different way define how they pay for it. >> -- david, where is this money coming from. i'm confused? >> there's a divide. that has been played out between president trump and republican leaders. at the retreat, mitch mcconnell and this would not -- this have
to come through supplemental. that would raise the prospect it could be filler buster if you have republicans out there they are not for this, that's a problem for president trump. >> it's the idea -- the platform fiscal conservativism, president trump did tell everybody i'm going to build the wall. he did say mexico is going to pay for it. the president doesn't want to show up. >> it's amazing. he most amazing salesman ever. this is the most amazing dresser and everyone want to buy the treser. everyone loves idea of mexico, if you put that thing together is devil in the betails.
one missing bolts thing falls apart. wall part are going to -- not be able to afford food for their children. in this case it's dangerous and your playing with this policy. top of the line sounds great, but details are importants here. >> is there a better way to secure border without being a wall that going to cost $18 billion. >> it. >> i talked to tom ridge about this. you have to use drones, border officials are important, plan power which troum is it include in the order. we do have some fencing down there already. the ports not covered are rugged tur rain. i doubt we're going to see 20
feet -- >> i think the president -- part of the immigration issue is we is so many people coming to country and over stay visa. they come through boston or jfk, that's all of control. >> there are protests in boston, it was sanctuary city. there's a huge amount that come here from over stay their visa. that's not the immigration we think about. that's one of the larger problems. >> he doing what he said he was going to do. he comes into office, nobody should be shocked. he said he was going to build a wall, there's no big surprise. he is doing all the things -- with the exception who going to pay for it. executive orders, he told us. >> it was obamacare, get rid of
the trade deals, immigration, that was his candidacy. that's why vu to see what congress does on a lot of this. >> you read the orders, they do mo not do anything. it's like we're not going to build the wall, we're going to get congress to study it and come up with a fan to -- >> he signed tp, p and we don't have the tpp and mcconnell was never going to bring up for a vote. >> or the pipeline, they use american steel. you don't produce the kind of steel to produce pipe lines, it's impossible. >> was this situation where you get dump by a boyfriend or
girlfriend. >> it's odd -- which very in a room, turn on the charm -- >> why you are telling him not to come this your pirate if you want him to pay for the wall. >> no, don't come unless you're paying for the wall. >> for them to float a 20% import tax -- >> i guess. >> that doesn't make sense. >> i suppose they are trying to think of a lot of way -- we all seize upon it. i'll give him freedom on that. thank you both. >> president trump making news today on what to do if democrats block his picks. chief strategist blasting media, they should keep their

like they are on the same page. >> has trumped surprised you? >> he said he was going to do a lot of things he has not do all of them. >> he has been two weeks in the presidency. >> he walked some things back. he said he was going to put hillary in jail and he is not going to do that. >> that did not surprise you? >> no. everything trump does surprises me. i think you make a point, the border wall, so many people thought he is not going to do this. he is really doing this. so many people said he doesn't mean that it's a campaign lane, he is really pursuing it. >> thank you nick, molly, thank you both.
