able to get guns and the president responded that's all a one on one. on "fox news sunday." then two days before president obama's final state of the union. we'll ask without chief of staff denis mcdonough whether the president will work with congress or work around it. and how the president is handling isis. all right now on "fox news sunday." hello again from fox news in washington. as we count down to the first voting of 2016, donald trump continue toss lead republicans nationally with rival ted cruz now in first place in iowa. on friday, i sat down with trump in his headquarters in new york city ease trump tower to discuss the campaign and his questioning whether cruz is eligible to be president. but we began with trump's
mr. trump, welcome back to "fox news sunday." >> thank you. the stock market has dropped dramatically in recent days, in large part because of the fears about the chinese economy. what would president trump do about the markets? >> well, if they would have been listening to me over the last six year, we so tight into china, when china goes bag, we go bad. we're tied in to their advantage, not ours. we have to be smart. as you know, they want to continue to devalue the currency in order to devalue out, but what that's doing is stopping our companies from being able to compete with china and other places, including japan, which, by the way, is doing big devaluations not good for us. anytime you see these countries devaluing currency, that's a bad thing for us. china wants to do that again to get itself out of a probeen. as president, you said the other day you would impose a 45% tariff on all chinese goods
wouldn't that both increase the price of these good to american consumers and weaken the chinese economy even more. >> i didn't say i was going to do it. i would say to them very strongly if you don't start living by the rules -- they're not living by the rules. what they're doing is a disgrace to us. by the way, china is not the only one, but china is the worst abuser of all, and they have to stop. if they don't, we have tremendous power over china. the obama administration doesn't understand that. we have tremendous economic power over china. once that stops, they have a depression the likes of which you have never seen. so we have a lot of power. why should republican voters in iowa, more than half of whom say they're either evangelicals or born-again christians, why should they choose you over ted cruz? >> i tell you, i have formed a agreed bond in iowa. i'm doing very well with the
ite protestant, i'm pretty by tierian, and by the way with the tea parties. you see that in the polls. >> why pick you over cruz? >> because i think i will be much better on illegal immigration. i will be much better on security. i will be much better on the military, i will be much better on the economy. the economy is my thing. let me ask you about immigration. cruz says he's tougher than you when it comes to immigration. your policy is you want to deport all of illegals out and let then what you call the good ones back in. he says if you're deported, you never get back in. >> he's changed. he also said for the first time we have to build a wall. >> no, he campaigned on that in 2012. i don't know 2012. i can tell you for this whole cycle he just mentioned it three days ago. i'm going to build a wall, we're going to have a strong border. when you start the process, everyone else leaves. the good ones will go through a
they have to come in legally. not citizenship, but they have to come in legally. that's much tougher than ted. ted was weak on illegal immigration. that's why he and rubio have been fighting who is stronger? they were both weak on it, actually. nobody can compete with me on nobody. >> there's also the question which you have raise in the last few days about whether or not ted cruz is a natural-born american -- >> i didn't raise it. "the washington post" raised it. they asked me a question. i said i really don't know. he was born in canada, he had a canadian citizens, and had a joint citizenship. what i told ted to do is go into court for declaratory judgment. you know, you can't run -- i'm talking about from his standpoint. i did not bring this up. "the washington post" brought it up. >> but some people say you're
>> what he should do is ask for declaratory judgment. he says it's not an issue. in fact when you raised it, he posted a video of the fonz jumping the shark, and he's kind of laughing -- >> he's not laughing. he's taking it seriously, as he should. and you know what? i think i'm going to win. i don't want to beat him this way. i'm just saying in my opinion, the democrats will bring a lawsuit. if it's ted, the democratless bring a lawsuit. he has to have this worked out. >> honestly, do you have any doubts that ted cruz is a natural-born american? >> i don't know. i don't know. it depends. does natural born mean born to the land, meaning born on the land? in that case he's not, but nobody knows what it means, and had hasn't been adjudicated or gone to the supreme court. i'm only saying this, and i speak well of ted. i'm just saying ted has to get this problem solved. if he's running again a democrat and they bring a lawsuit, he has
president obama is making a big push about gun control. you said the other day pretty soon we're not going to be able to get guns. the president responded that's all a conspiracy. >> contrary to claims of some presidential candidates apparently before this meeting, this is not a plot to take away everybody's guns. >> your reaction? >> so president obama has been hitting the second amendment, and he would like to hit it very hard. number one, you shouldn't do it through executive order. you should get together with the republicans and the democrats and work something out. that's the way it's supposed to be done. not by the signing of an executive order. now, he's done executive orders, he's done it on the border, all over the place. does he meet with anybody anymore? all he does is sign executive orders. the one on the border was just overturned, who knows what's
legal mess, but you have to get people in the room, talk to them, cajole them, see if you can do something. i have a real problem anytime you start knocking and taking chunks out of the second amendment. if people had guns in california when these two horrible people that were married, however, whoever was radicalized first nobody knows, but they were both radical obviously in the end. had people in that room had guns, a couple of them, it would have been a totally different story. in paris as an example, you know, in paris, the toughest gun laws they say in the world or just about, france, the toughest gun lauds in the world, all these people, 130 people killed. had people in those rooms in paris when they were being shot, no guns on the good guys' side, had there been guns there would have been shooting, they would have been gone and it would have
turned out to be. >> this week you released a short video once against hitting bill clinton on his personal problems. here it is. women's rights are human rights and human rights are women's rights. once and for all, let's keep fighting for opportunity and dignity. >> first of all, you put bill cosby in there, and you have compared bill clinton's problems to bill cosby's -- >> no, inl not doing that. that's really up to the public. >> you mentioned them both in the same sentence. >> it's not up to me. >> as inappropriate as his relationship with monica lewinsky may have been -- >> you're not talking about monica, you're talking about many. >> it was consensual. >> you're talking about many. >> if you read the book, the book has other ones that were horrible, one accusing of rape and other things. hey, look, he was impeached, he
practice law. he to pay a massive fine or massive amount of money to -- whether it's paula jones or whoever. this was all done in the white house, a lot of it was done in the white house. not a good situation. now, had she not mentioned about penchant for sexism for me, i have more respect for women than hillary clinton has. i have more respect than hillary clinton, okay? i will take care of this country far better than hillary, so i thought it was appropriate, to be honest. i thought it was appropriate. he's campaigning for the wife. she want i had a penchant for sexism, which i don't, but that's what she said. >> a lot of republican officials say this will backfire, that you're going to make her more popular, once again she's the victim -- >> no, no, she's not a victim. she was -- she -- >> she was an enabler? >> she worked with him.
totally destroyed. some of these women have been destroyed, and hellry worked with him. there's no -- there's no feeling sorry for hillary in this situation. all you have to do is look at some of the facts and some of the settlements. >> clinton has refused to respond to your statements, saying she's made a new year's resolution. here it is. >> i'm going to let him live in his alternative reality and i'm not going to respond. >> your reaction? >> i can tell you right now during the democrat debate, even though these call it the democratic debate, it's the democrat debate, she brought the sexism into it penchant for. i said, what's going on over here? then her husband said, i'm going to go out to campaign, so with all of that happening, i think he's fair game. i would say 95% of the people who have looked at it, including the liberal press, has agreed with me. >> in the time we have left,
quick questions, quick answers. north korea tested a nuclear weapon this week, they say it was a hydrogen bomb. what would president trump do about north korea? >> i think north korea is a disgrace. in fact i told you a long time ago, they better start looking at that. the iran deal is one of the worst deals i've ever seen with $150 billion and everything else. at least right now -- they'll have one soon, by the way with the stupid agreement, but at least right now they don't have one. north korea has very dangerous weapons of some sort. >> what would you do? >> i would get china, and i would say get in there and straighten it out. you better straighten it out. if you don't, we're going to have trouble, because we have power. we have trade power over china, and obama doesn't understand. he's not a business person. >> there have been certainly domestic terror incident recently. two refugees who were arrested for trying to support isis in syria. there was a cop who was shot in
him said he was doing it out of his allegiance to isis. >> we have to be very strong. look, if we're not vigilant in this country, we're not going to have a country left. you look at brussels, what's happening in germany, what's happening in paris, so many places, we have to be vigilant. we hear about a bush done trick, obama doctrine. there a trump doctrine on foreign policy? guiding philosophy? >> yeah, tough, smart, vigilant. we have to be respected, because right now, chris we're not respected by anybody, and other people -- i have to tell you, in terms of foreign policy we're losing a fortune, other people have to pay up. and again, when we take care of south korea militarily, when we take care of jenny and all the -- many people don't even know this. when we are protecting all these countries, when we're protecting saudi arabia as an example,
billion dollars a day, now it's less because of the oil, but they're still making plenty, okay? they have to pay up. i mean, we're protecting them. they have to pay up. i didn't like what they did, by the way. i thought what they did was not good, all of the executions, but when saudi arabia is making a billion dollars a day and we get peanuts every time we have a problem we have to go and defend them, it's not going to work that way. they have to pay up. you have had remarkable success as a republican candidate, lord knows you surprised me, but there are people who say if you should actually become the nominee and be in the general election, that you're going to have problems, you're going to have to reach out to hispanics, to minorities, to women, to independents, but you're going to have to move to the center and you're going to have to tone it down. >> look, all i can tell sudden what i can tell you. you said i wouldn't run. in fact you said i don't want him on this program, because he's not going to run.
>> not only did i run, i got 42% now in the latest poll and other everything else. so i ran, i'm doing well. >> it's not attractive to say "i told you so," mr. trump. >> i understand, but i think i'm going to do well. it shouldn't be hillary because of what she did with the e-mails. frankly she shouldn't be allowed to run. recent polls have shown i'm going to do well. a lot of people are saying if it's trump against hillary, it will be the largest voter turnout in the history of this country, and those extra people, those people that have never been part of the process before, are doing it because they're going to vote for trump. so i think we're going to do well. >> mr. trump, thank you. >> thank you. up next, we'll bring in our sunday group to discuss the republican race, and a new problem about hillary clinton's private e-mails. plus what would you like to ask the panel about the trump/cruz birther debate? just go to facebook or
air. i have never breathed a breath of air on this planet without being a citizen. it was the process of being born that made me a u.s. citizen. >> senator ted cruz defendingg himself against claims he may not be eligible to be president, because he was born in canada. it's time for our sunday group syndicated columnist george will.
post." laura ingraham, editor in chief of the website life zat, andd analyst juan williams. we asked questions for the panel and we god a bunch about cruz questioning. rob hogan tweeted this -- why did trump and media insist about talking about another nonissue? stick to real issues. and if place of birth didn't matter with obama, why should it matter with cruz? laura? >> ted cruz's mother was born in the united states. ted cruz never renounced his u.s. citizenship. he mother did not live the requisite five years according to canadian law to even request canadians citizenship. as long as ted cruz feels like he has to answer questions about this, i think what's driven him up in the polls in iowa is somewhat diminished, because
that closely will get their heads wrapped around this issue -- well, wait, he was born in canada. people i do not believe it's a disqualifier. paul clement is one of the smartest minds in washington. we both clerked on the sprk. this is -- this is a joke, according to him. >> one of the things i have to say i enjoyed this week was john mccain saying this might be a legitimate issue. >> he's likely a rubio supporter. >> cruz ishe he going to endorse rubio, and this is mccain getting back at the wacko birds
question. this is the birth certificate for ted cruz's mother documenting the fact she was bore in delaware, clearly one cruz feels he can't ignore this. point. it's now solidly established as a media story. its everywhere. i do agree with what laura said. i think lots of people, including voters are saying he was born in canada? that's news to me. >> it's not news to us around here, but it might be news to them the fact is it's never been litigate litigated, never been to the supreme court. so what we have here is the enemy of my enemy is my friend when it comes to john mccain. john mccain has for love for donald trump. donald trump called him a losing for getting captured in vietnam. what you have here is cruz is a guy who's campaign against fellow republicans through the
he's a guy that has called mitch mcconnell a a liar on the floor so hi own republican caucus have a strong distaste from mccain. >> chickens coming home to roost. >> for ted cruz. on the other hand hillary clinton seems to be cruising to the nomination, but there was a new release of e-mails on friday. this may cause some problems for her. in 2011, when an aide was having trouble sending her material by a secure fax, she sent they see instructions. if they can't, turn into nonpaper with no identifying heading, and send nonsecure. bob woodward, why is this important? >> here you have the secretary of state in 2011 saying let's subvert the rules, which say you've got to send -- presumably -- it's very clear from the earlier e-mails that
i've written about nonpapers or no papers, and this is the way people in the government take the heading off and create something that exists. >> explain that. what's a nonpaper and taking the heading off? >> by taking it off, it's just a piece of paper that has a bunch of paragraphs. there's no classification, there's no subject, so it's not in the system, so no one can discover it through freedom of information act or some sort of subpoena. i mean, look, here is hillary clinton, somebody who worked on the staff of the nixon impeachment committee, and what was the lesson? one of the lessons from that? never write anything down. she did years of whitewater investigations, where she was the target, and here many years later she's saying oh, let's
out herself? whether that's some sort of clime, that is not the issue. the issue is she kind of feels immune, she lives in a bubble, and no one is ever going to find this out. well, now we have. >> george, i think it's fair to say that after -- first of all bernie sanders said i'm tired of your e-mails and then the benghazi hearings, the e-mails seemed to be fading away. does this revive it? >> it keeps it going. i think it is a question of legality. the problem with this as a political issue, the first of an issue is on which a function of its simplicity. when the average voter hears about a server in a closet in colorado, they know what a closet is, but what is a server?
perception about the clintons, whenever they come, they come in a cloud of seaminess, and this is in the cloud of petraeus. a former director of the cia got in trouble for the mishandling of classified information. so at the end of the day, this comes down to the justice department. we know -- we don't think, we know from the i.r.s. example that the holder justice department was eager to be complicit in covering up certainly scanned always. the question is, if the fbi makes a recommendation to the justice department about illegality, then the ball is in loretta lynch's court, and we'll see if she's a different kind of attorney general. >> but going back many years, i have followed the hillary clinton, you know, what she does and biography is character and behavior is character here, and when i read that, i was really surprised that she would type that out and
and, you know, maybe we'll get answers in fairness to her, it's not clear what this is about, what the talking points were and so forth. >> does it make sense? if it was supposed to be send secure and she, as you say, subverting the law by -- or at least the regulations by sending it nonsecure -- >> the question is, what is it? i'm tried to look into the record and figure out what was going on that day and she was going to give a press briefing. maybe it was talking points for a press briefing, and there may there. at the same time she was meeting with the russians and maybe there was, so we'll see. >> she hasn't released all of her e-mails. she was supposed to reach a threshold be december 31st, she did not. her staff says they're working hard. you are not allowed under federal law to act as your own declassifier.
why are you scowl? do you think there would be a legality issue? >> because the person who did i see if it's classified or not -- >> no, no, no. >> not only has she accepted the state department and judd department -- >> you're saying that hillary clinton's handling of this e-mail situation, that is all cool, this is the way our government is supposed to work? >> i agree with what bob said. >> they said they doesn't know. >> joe said the fbi, chris is on the verge of a makejor revolt. >> we should say former u.s. attorney. >> george hit the nail on the head. this goes to the heart of whether we can trust or government to be fully transparent when they're supposed to be appeared properly handle this information and the professionals will have the final say. >> i think you're lost in the weeds on this one. >> that's what you hope.
care, and i think jim comey is beyond reproach. >> the voters care about whether whether we're going to find out what she really did. this is one element of it. >> all right. we have to take a break here. see you a little later. up next president obama delivers his last state of the union address. we'll sit down with denis mcdonough to discuss the challenges president obama faces. what do you think of president obama going around congress on gun control. let me know on facebook or on twitter @foxnewssunday and use the #fns.t a real thing? it's a great school, but is it the right one for her? is this really any better than the one you got last year? if we consolidate suppliers, what's the savings there? so should we go with the 467 horsepower? ...or is a 423 enough? good question. you ask a lot of good questions... i think we should move you into our new fund. sure... ok. but are you asking enough about how your wealth is managed?
days after the paris attacks, senators came together for a top-secret briefing on the terrorist threat... marco rubio was missing - fundraising in california instead. two weeks later, terrorists struck again in san bernardino... and where was marco? fundraising again in new orleans. over the last 3 years, rubio has missed important national security hearings and missed more total votes than any other senator. politics first: that's the rubio way. right to rise usa is responsible for the content of this message. coming up president obama blames the nra, not his plans for the recent spike in gun sales. >> the nra has convinced many of its members that somebody is going to come grab your guns.
president's late signing up for health insurance was very easy... my premium is 22 dollars a month. it only took a few minutes, and i got exactly the kind of coverage i wanted at the price i wanted... it was a comforting feeling to know that our family is secure and that we have health insurance... most people who sign up on healthcare.gov qualify for financial help to make coverage more affordable, lowering their monthly premiums. financial help with healthcare.gov makes it possible... you could find a low premium plan and avoid paying a fee for not having health coverage.
