welcome back. well, later this morning on news4 you will see chuck todd's exclusive sit-down with president trump. they covered a lot of topics from the recent developments in iran, family sep ation tos re-election as well. >> for that chuck joins us in studio for just for "meet the press." ths for joining us. really excited to see this interview. what shou your biggest take awa? >> when i g him on rniday late mog, we ended up sitting down, after, of course, the sort of the 12 hours previs where a
6:44 am
lot of people thoughte will h or won't he initiate some sort of military response to the downed drone. the c projection ofnfidence that probably, you know -- look, he -- there is nothing more thas he lov when he knows he has everg.ody guessin so here he has his own staff asguessing. heemocrats guessing when it came to iran. it's his favorite moments when he h that feeling of he is the one controlling events and nobody is quite sure where he stands on a specific issue. that's his favorite moment in life and in politics. so it was v ay confident and chatty president. so you can imagine it ended up going in a lot of directions. >> yeah. i mean, i'm sure aside from iran you coveredopther ts as well? >> we went deep with accefamily it is clear to me the president is notco getting a mplete picture of what's going on at these facilities, particularly
6:45 am
down in homestead and some of these facilities where these kids are -- he hears the ptions and says i don't like it. i don't think he has seen pictures. i think that is something that that was a takeaway i had here post-interview, which is if you really wt to see him do something about this, somebody is going to have to get the fact in front of him because hisst f is -- somebody is not giving him the pictures. one would assume if he actually saw these conditions, he would have some different reaction. >> you talk about with him, you know, being confident. did you get the same feeling, he is confident going into the leks? elections. >> i asked him if he was prepared to lose. that's a good question. >> and it was -- it was one of those moments where he hesitated. it was interesting. you won't be surprised his answer, but this was one of those where the body language matters. it's one of those, i encourage you toow see h he talked about that.
6:46 am
he certailoy -- k, i think it's all he is thinking about, all right? there is a reason he filed for re-election on the day he was inaugurated. i can't help but think that also was part of the equation in the iran decision. he looked. he knows this is a very, very narrow path that he has for the election, and i think he is afraid of upsending it in any way. i think he saw iran as something that can only go back. what is the upside of doing this for m politically, and i don't think he saw one. >> we have to run. you are heading to miami? >> i am. you know, hre it is. an epic week of politics. it started with the president's re-election last week in florida. you thinflorida mattersn a presidential eleio ek. mighami is where the debates ki off. yeah, i have a feeling that we are going to -- interesting. that is another topic we will hit. joe biden and pete buttigieg
