them in the act, you're not gong to catch them. they have no idea if it's russia or china or somebody. it could be somebody sitting in a bed someplace. they have no idea. >> so why would the cia put out the story that the russians wanted you to run? >> i'm not sure they put it out. the i think the democrats are putting it out, because they suffered one of the greatest defeats in the history of politics in this country. personally, it could be russia. i don't really think it is. but who knows? i don't know. >> there are bipartisan calls including from the top republican in the u.s. senate, mitch mcconnell, for a congressional investigation into russia's hacking. here he is. >> obviously, any foreign breach of our sovereign security measures is disturbing. and i strongly condemn any such efforts. i agree with senator schoourp, chairman mccain, burr, and others, this simply cannot be a partisan issue. i have the highest confidence in the intelligence community and especially the central intelligence agencies. >> joining me right now is senator chris coons, "the washington post"

formal candidate or not. i do think that his issue of china isn't being talked about very much by the candidates, and that is still a huge sleeper issue for the republican candidate in this race. >> and what's his argument? >> that china -- the united states doesn't do enough to have leverage with china, that china economically is making the united states a victim, and the chinese know it and they laugh at us. i have found from hillary clinton who has talked about it as an issue in this state and elsewhere four years ago, and when trump talked about it, i found tons of residence on that issue. that's a hugely resident issue. but that alone i think makes trump's capacity, maybe not trump himself, but trump's sense of where the country is hat something the republicans, at least, can pick up on. >> well, it's hard to argue with your banker. as long as the united states owes billions of dollars to china, it's very hard to be mouthy with them. so what we're doing now seems to be more aggressive than before. we're putting bases in australia, we're starting to, i don't want to say encircle,

hammered by china and everyone else because of stinking trade deals because we have weaker, stupid or whatever people making them. he promises to change all this, to start kicking some butt and start shoving back. let's watch him. >> america's lost nearly one-third of its manufacturing jobs since 1997. this is america we are talking about. since 1997. driven by these two, hillary clinton understood and backed and bill clinton certainly as the president initiatives. they are a disaster. and now they want to go into tpp, trans-pacific partnership. that will make nafta in my opinion look like a baby. now, we don't play the game the way they play the game. they play the game to win. we play the game in this country to survive. we are going to start playing the game to win. >> well, the two most pressing concerns for many americans right now are terror, of course, and the economy. donald trump says he has answers to both. he's going to renegotiate trade deals and get tough with china and he's going to take the gloves off against isis. he says the country's falling apart, that we have ev

korea out of the nuclear weapons business. china is a major and critical part of doing that. as is russia. so we need to assemble the power the world, put all of that pressure on north korea, and move them away from being a nuclear weapons -- a nuclear weapons nation. three administrations have tried to do this, have not succeeded. will this administration succeed? we certainly hope so. but at the same time be careful about drawing a red line that may draw us into a major conflict on the korean peninsula. as has been said many times in this evening when the president was on the campaign trail, he was saying, i will blank and bomb them, blank, blank. so what is north korea hearing? they are hearing the rhetoric of the campaign. and frankly, it has not diminished. he has sent a major, as he called it, armada, which is not a particularly good term because i think the spanish armada didn't do too well. in any case, it is provocative. and will it cause north korea to back down? probably not by itself. but in the context of china, russia, and others, all of those cuss, including ours, pu

and a half, i was actually in china, and they've taken notice of the president's tough new rhetoric and what seems to be a kind of different attitude toward china. you know, politically, i think, at least on the domestic front, that tends to serve to inoculate the president, i think, against charges from the republicans that he's somehow soft on china, as if soft or hard is really going to kind of change the nature of what's going on in china or the fact that our two economies are so interrelated that, you know, what can you do? >> i agree with you so well. even the metaphoric use of words like "tough" and "soft" don't work anymore. here's a democratic priorities usa group with a new ad airing in iowa and on national cable that features ronald reagan, the president, making the case for the wealthy paying their fair share in taxes. let's listen to this iconic moment. >> so far, the republicans support taxing the middle class instead of the wealthy. one republican disagrees. your thoughts, sir? >> we're going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that have allowed some of the truly
