7:33 am
33% of the population absolutely hates him probably around the dmv. part of that crowd then there's 33% that just fluctuates up and down depending on what he does different points in time. so last night he was speaking to the 33% in his mine of what he was looking at and the crowd -- he was riled up that's his crowd. he was excited to talk to them, that's who he is. >> for those who are in his base, they love to see that part of him and they like to see the unfiltered part of the president as you said for those who don't like him it just kyle amps whatever their concerns are and dislike there. but the message itself is the message loft when it comes to the campaign style rallies. is there a way to communicate. >> if i'm directing candidate i usually say speak to one or two themes, right? he went through a lot. i'll take one. the media he went after the media last night. and he kind of related it back to charlottesville and what happened. i did some research a couple days ago on this. according to southern poverty law center the most

7:35 am
open how quickly one line, one statement can reverberate. ? don't you try to get that across to your clients make sure you don't get that line in there and open that crack in that window? >> yes. that's conventional wisdom. that's conventional strategy. this is not conventional. trying to argue it doesn't get anywhere it's not going to change. trump is who he is. sometimes that resonates with that group of people that fluctuate with him. it always resonates with his supporters it will never resonate with the people that will never respond to him. >> that creates challenges for the people who have to work him and closest to him as part of the administration. let me ask you some questions that came up last night. when it comes to politics now the question about the wall and him making the statement that he's willing to shut the government down. >> sure. >> in order to get that wall built. this is a government that controlled by his own party. how does that message resonate. >> especially with the changes in the white house pivot it will be trump against congress. not trump against the democrats. not trump gets the republicans. trump gets all of them. i think the a
7:36 am
you look at some of the polling i've seen lately, it is actually like congress is less popular than trump right now overall. >> less popular than the president for long time. >> for a long time. trump knows that is an angle to go in and he's going to use it if the pulpit to get what he wants. he has not fulfilled his one huge campaign promise, you know, for the last two years or three years, that he's going to build the wall. and so now i think he's digging in. >> does that resonate witness other gop lawmakers. this is -- party versus the president that's kind of fragile ground there. >> i totally agree. bill clinton did it beautifully. he was a master at it and triangulating if you remember back in those days 20 years ago. trump has got to figure out his team has to figure out how to best suit this and make it work. >> last question for you philip. your most recent wall working with one member of his administration the secretary of education. >> yeah. >> on the digital platform, we have never seen digital platform like we're seeing witness president and twitter and you mentio
7:37 am
>> that's right. >> sadder more effective way for him to manage that if you tell him if you're advising him keep doing what you're doing. >> he's going to do what he wants to do. general kelly is the greatest influence he can have but he's got to let trauma be trump in some areas. that's probably twitter. and then try to control who comes in and out of the white house in other areas. he has to pick his battles. i don't know, i mean, he is -- that's his bully pulpit that's what he's going to use, and it doesn't matter what anybody says. of course, i would probably let's calm that down a little stay on message trump is going to do way wants to do. >> all you can do is vice him at that point. >> that's right. >> philip, strategist and adviser on four presidential campaigns. thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you. >> 7:37. let's turn things over to mike thomas. almost said tucker. tucker enjoying time off. >> enjoying vacation. well deserved here. checking cloud cover outside while he's out and about. off to the north today i believe. he's dealing with better wea weather. let's get to it. satellite/radar dealing with cloud cover out there but sunshine mixing in in spots we won't be dealing with clouds all
