divisions among mr. trump's trus economic advisers that they they favor increased tradevor in joining us to talk about this is republican strategist jacktac burkman. always good to have you on the show. >> merry christmas guy >> let me first start by m asking you whae t do you thinkhi about peter navarro and his qualifications to be in thisioni position. >> i think it's terrific.errifi. it's a great idea that trump th has all of these businessusiness people in the cabinet.len th that's really what's beens bee lacking with obama the last las eight years and i would say to t people even if you're --oue whether you're a democrat democ republican independent there'sne so much waist in the couryist ic right now and the waste is not i just obama it's built up overp e the last 50 years, it's reallyll time to have a business personer that can tighten the screws ther all the way around. arod. >> now when you also look at at carl icahn as well the two off these together navarro andar a icahn and you see trump has been pushing economic growthmicr what do you think we're goingu to see movingthin forwardorrd especially since they've beeny'b kind of outspoken

6:33 pm
there's morals then there's tre ethics then there's publictherel relations.relations. if we get to the point where wre we see these conflicts everywhere what we really willli be seeing is that major maj business people really can'trean serve in the t cabint you can take this as far as a you want. anybody way net worth of $10 million or more would be disqualified from governmentromn because they own this, thatha and the other and this that that and the other might be favored by the government at some point. gover the u.s. government todayt tod touches every form of industryy in the country sadly bfoutrm it does. >> all right let me ask youe asu real quick about the two bighe b appointments today, you want to talk about those. >> shawn spicer tapped as the press secretary. sectary. i know he has been around foror quite some time with the rnc. r. what do you think though giventu the fact that we know kno president-elect tru is veryct te much the, loves to tweet,o tweet loves to do what he wants to .o. does spicer have his work cut c out for
6:34 pm
>> i'd love the transition asits you know but there's one problem with trump has -- trump doesn't want anybody around him whoim has any capacity to emerge as as some kind of minor media stariaa on their own.wn spicer you can look at himook he's not going to i'm merge in m that way. he had -- he could have chosen kimberly gil foil.oil. he had a lot of good choices. cs i would have picked one ofe those especially laura. i think s lhe would have beenld perfect but trump just can't stand anyone arot untrd him whoi a star other than himself. himsf spicer is a good solidd solid reliable choice.e. he's like a navy blue z youe can't go wrong with him but h b there's not a lot of upsidet ofe with him, either., either. >> all right. right jack, we always love havingalwa you on the sho thanks for coming in. cg in. >> thank you guys.>>hank >> appreciate it.>> a >> next here, he compared compad donald trump to hitler and hisr opinion landed him on a listis of most liberal professors inssn the country.e unt the professor watch lit was litw compiled by a conservati

6:36 pm
is really comingat from. >> well, when i get angry andt a it was over 18 months ago atgot trump when he was talkingaski about locking up muslims and building the wall none ofne o which he apparently is goingoi to do or he talked about immigrants bringing disease oria dump on women or making fun of the disabled, i said he was hit ler-like. he was doing things that were getting theng t atthiraction of white power groups and david dav duke and the american naziaz party. they were shootingshotin endorsements at him. him. you can criticize me and ime a don't think any student i'vedene ever had would say i tried tori squelch comment in class. css but to come back to the point te i don't want students making lists. i want students making arguments. >> let me jump forward to sortos of where we are today. t donald trump has been elected. t we're still seeing some of of those people. in fact i think k oftentimes the media has beenee criticized for giving thoseed fv folks you were talking about arl platform and a voice t
6:37 pm
do you think or would your woulu still make that sameil comparison that you made aboutla donald trumphat calling him hitler-like today? tay >> no, he's tend to it down and i think maybe in response to some of those real concernson that you can't just, you know, sort of say, oh, mexicans are bad or diseased, slurring srring ethnic groups is hitler-like.iti you can't do that. racism is bad.cism is bad. i think he's pulled back somewhat. we're still going debate his policies but happily i think i k he's veered weigh from thered course he was on. >> really quick because we're running out of time here, anything that ycourouquick g oul look at and admire about the president-elect perhaps?elect p? >> great marketer. understands social media.edia. i think some of his h willingness to get out theres et and challenge accepted wisdomm whether it's on foreign policyy or business, all to the good. but, you know, i want to hear to that debated in the classroomssm and i'll come back to itt don't try to bully. bully

6:39 pm
all right. so, the story is this.his. that trump is lending aesthetics to his list ofs li things he does and does notoe n want on his cabinet nominees. you see some of them rightht there. general james mattis remarkeds a he resembles george patton. pato everybody remembers governorreme rick perry on "dancing with thery on stars." stars there are other factors in facts this as well. was senator bob corker of tennessee not chosen as secretary of state because he h may not have been tall enough? so, the word on this confirming that this is a factor comes from jason jason miller. he's a trump transitionitio spokesperson. this is what miller says. "presentation is very important because you're representing america, not onlynl on the national stage but also t on the international stage depending on your position"osit" so, we came down here to thee te white house and the question qut

actually quite recent.ent. 2009 and 2013, there were inauguration commemorativetion cards made out for for f f president barack obama.iden they also made one for mt itt romney in 2012 before he lost ls the but prior to that, it's really y a spotty history of whether or not the president was actuallycy put on the card.d. we saw bill clinton in 1993. 199 it wasn't his picture but ite bu was a signature but actually metro, you know, just came outat with it and said with georgeithe bush they said "there's not a a large public interest."nterest. i think there might be maybe less controversy if maybe theybe had said that there was a a different reason why he wasn't on the card. car i think the thing that doestoe have people shaking theirshakin heads is oh we reached out but we never heard now it's not on there. not on te that is what has some people questioning whether or notinwhe that's the full story. sry but take a listen to what to wha people had to say out here by h the tenleytown metro stop earlier today. tay. >> c
