6:02 am
go back and fix the countries they came from in a series of racist tweets. by midweek, the president was disappoint vowing a chant to quote send her back about somali born congresswoman illhan omar and said he spoke up to stop the chants and on friday he called the rally goers incredible patriots and today he's questioning the congresswomen love of the country. so joining me now is someone who is running to replace president trump 2020 presidential candidate cory booker of new jersey. good morning, senator. let me start by asking about the president and you said the president's original comment was racist. many of your opponents bernie sanders, julian castro, kamala harris called trump himself a racist. what makes you stop short of that? >> well, i actually am not. the reality is this is a guy who
6:03 am
is worse than a racist. he's actually using racist tropes and language for political gain to use this as a weapon to divide our nation against itself and this is somebody who is very similar to george wallace, to racists who uses the exact same language. somebody texted me during his rallies, i've seen this before in black and white and seeing it again decades later where i thought our country was beyond this. i'm seeing this in full color. so this election in many ways is yet another chapter in our american history. we seen it with the know nothing party trying to stop irish and german. we seen it with mccarthy. this is a referendum not on him but actually a referendum on the heart and soul of our country, who are we going to be and to each other. >> let's talk about your race to get the chance to run against president trump. cnn announced this week the
6:04 am
lineup for the democratic debate next week you will be on the stage right next to former vice president joe biden. deputy communications director tweeted about next week's debate and said the following, mark the date, july 31st, 2019, joe biden finally gets his own senate judiciary committee hearing. what does that mean? >> i'm not sure. i didn't see the tweet. i'm looking forward to being on that stage with people that are vying for the most important job in our country and looking forward to putting out a vision of what we need for the future of our party, and we need leaders not only good and sharp on the ideas but the soul of our nation, who can divide, excuse me, at a time trump is trying to divide, who can unite the party and the country as a whole. >> joe biden came under fire for the anita hill hearings. do you think it's about that and more importantly, is that something in the front of your
6:05 am
mind as you think about prepa preparing for this debate? >> look, you know, this are issues in all across our country we're still struggling with and challenges. we're still in a nation which does not treat women on equal footing, whether equal pay for equal work or sexual assault that still is something in our country even as i saw recently in the senate where we are not dealing with as we should and listening to women. even more than that, we see a criminal justice system that not only attacks women, we have 86% of the women we incarcerate are survivors of sexual assault, but a prison system that was super charged by things like the 1994 crime bill. so we have to solve these problems and do it today. i'm proud to have been a part of, in fact, one of the leaders of the only major not bipartisan bill that passed through the senate to reverse the things caused by the 1994 crime bill.
6:06 am
>> i want to move on but you don't know the context of the tweet by your own spokesperson? >> i do not. >> let's talk about your record, which you are running on. you were mayor of new york. part of that record comes with the doj report and talks about some of your time with mayor and says black residents were at least two and a halftimes more likely than residents to be stopped, arrested or searched. the report says this about black residents, quote, this unde undeniable experience of beinro the policing shows the distrust that undermines the policing in newark. do you take any responsible for the way this policing hurt plaque reblack residents of newark under your watch? >> yeah, i took responsibility and accountability and we
6:07 am
stepped up to deal with the problem. not only working with the doj but the aclu to put full word what was a national standard setting level of accountability. soim pro so i'm proud of that record to take on the problems and frankly, as a senator, i put forth legislation to create more police accountability and transparency so that we can begin to deal with some of the deep racial issues we have that permeate not just policing but also everything from prosecution actions to our criminal justice system as a whole. we had real challenges in the city of newark and we worked hard to deal with that and transforming the court system. we did a lot of things that really have become models for what needs to happen, not just in new jersey our our nation as a whole. >> i want to get to health care, which is a huge one in the race for the democratic nomination. your 2020 opponent camilkamala s
6:08 am
that supports medicare for all said she would not raise taxes on the middle class to pay for it. joe biden went on the attack this week. let's listen. >> you have a lot of people running saying i'm not for that tax. there is no way to be for it if you don't. >> so you're a co-sponsor of medicare for all. would you raise taxes on the middle class to pay for it? >> i'm a co-sponsor of a lot of bills that can deal with this broken system, the cost are tremendously to the tune of hundreds and hundreds of trillions of dollars more. we have a deeply broken system. if i'm president of the united states, the first step i'm going to take is to create a public option that will reduce cost within the system driving down prescription drug cost and attacking bureaucracy going on. as somebody that had to run something, i was a chief executive of our state's largest city during a recession. we found ways to battle back
6:09 am
bureaucracy, lower costs and make things more -- >> senator, do you want to do that? but do you want to do that with the medicare for all plan? because you're a co-sponsor, that suggestions that the answer is yes but you're saying maybe not. >> no, look, what i've said very clearly to folks is i believe that medicare for all is the end that we should be seeking. but anybody who says that can't be a political slogan. there has to be a pathway to create a vibrant public option and driving down costs for americans and creating options so people don't have to rashtio prescription drugs. >> bernie sanders would do it at the beginning. get in the white house and that would be what they would do. for you that's not? >> if we had 60 votes in the senate now, all the democrats in the senate wouldn't even support that. this is about not letting the perfect be the enemy of the
6:10 am
good. we're dealing with a country that needs a lot more good. >> is medicare for all unrealistic? >> look, medicare for all is what we should be going for but the first step has to show we can create a public option allowing medicare to be available for more people and we'll drive down cost because people from a private pool will begin to choose medicare for all. older people, more older people, 55, 56 will choose that public option to make the private pools go down. >> you're right. i do know the reality of congress but i want to make as you were we're clear, you said medicare for all, your aspiration can't pass so it wouldn't be your first issue out of the gate. >> i'm not taking anything off the table. i believe that this election for our nation needs to be a movement election. so we don't necessarily know what congress is going to look like. my goal is that in america, all americans agree with this, in this country health care should be a right.
6:11 am
nobody should be being denied income opportunities because they can't afford them. what's the first steps we can take to begin to get there? they have to involve increasing access and lowering costs for americans. i am more than confident i can be the president to deliver on that. prague mat ti steps to pull new collisions together to advance us towards our ultimate goal of everyone having health care in america. >> senator, your democratic opponent is under fire from his campaign staff for not paying some of them sallies of $15 an hour. you support a $15 an hour minimum wage. do you pay your campaign staff that? >> we said we're not only going to pay the campaign staff that but interns, as well. i'm very proud of the house we have. not only do we pay our campaign staff wages that reflect what my values are but we actually make sure that we have inclusive campaigns, diverse campaigns.
6:12 am
>> so it's $15 an hour? minimum? >> $15 an hour or more than that, yes. >> >>. i want to ask about something you were asked, whether or not you would meet with israel leader and he said quote -- you said quote i don't feel like i need to do that but i'm not one of those people who says that i wouldn't sit down with anybody to hear what they have to say. is that still where you are? >> well, first of all, that is completely taking out of context that larger conversation. >> okay. give me the context. >> i will not sit down with louis farrakhan period. >> thank you for clearing that up. let's talk about this coming week. the former special counsel robert mueller, he's going to testify before congress as you well know. he did not make a determination during his investigation in the report about whether the president committed a crime. he sited justice department
6:13 am
guidelines that say a sitting president can't be indicted. your 2020 opponent elizabeth warren wants to get rid of that policy. >> i want to be specific, we'll have a big week ahead with mueller coming before congress, and what i see in the behavior that i see in that outline with great specificity in that report, many prosecutors said are indictable offenses and something that does to obstruction or obstruction itself, i believe congress has a role to play right now and i've been someone who called for the beginnings of impeachment proceedings especially because we have a president right now who is not allowing congress to do its job, which is provide checks and balances to provide oversight and investigation. so this is a moment where someone swore an oath to uphold a constitution, we have a president acting not like the leader of the free world but
6:14 am
more like an authoritarian figure. >> senator -- finish your thoughts. >> we need to begin impeachment proceedings. >> thank you, sorry for the delay there. appreciate you. next up, i'll ask a leading republican senator how the president's latest fight is going over in a key swing state and coming up, did president trump find a way to unite all americans over hatred of paper straws? stay with us. here's another reason to join t-mobile. do you like stranger things? sure you do. that's why netflix is on us. and here's another reason to join. bring in your discount, and we'll match it. that's right. t-mobile will match your discount. nlash serum solution. with our lash caring complex... see a thicker-looking lash fringe in just 4 weeks. over 10,000 women tried it and love it. my husband has noticed a difference. i really love lash serum. try new lash serum solution. from l'oreal paris.

welcome back to "state of the union." i'm dana bash. president trump's racist attacks on four democratic congress w women came has he's campaigning for a reelection bid. is this helping president trump with key swing states? joining me is a senator from one of the swing states that president trump won in 2016. wisconsin republican ron johnson chairman of the homeland security committee. thank you so much for joining me this morning. senator, i have to start asking you about president trump's tweet this morning continuing his attacks on those progressive congresswomen. here is what he tweet in part.
6:19 am
i don't believe the four congresswomen are capable of loving our country. do you agree with the president that they are not capable of loving the united states? >> good morning, dana. i would say in general the america love it or leave it is not a new sentiment. that wasn't considered racist. i find it unfortunate so many parts of our public debate are getting stuck inside a racial frame work when what i would like to see is us moving toward that color blind society. i was hoping when president obama was elected, it would go a long way to healing the racial divide so we can concentrate on challenges facing this nation where we really could embrace dr. king's sentiment. i would like to see everybody reduce the rhetoric and let's start dealing with these enormous challenges facing this nation in good faith effort.
6:20 am
dana, i truly believe americans by in large all have the same goal in mind. we want a safe, prosperous and secure america. let's start tackling some problems. >> fair point. when the president of the united states tweets first last week send them back, which for people like you and me maybe it doesn't hit a, you know, a chord and strike a nerve but for people of color, it does because many of them have heard that, you know, in their communities in a very negative way. still even in 2019. so given that, and today saying they are incapable of loving this country. how is the president doing practicing what you just breachebreac preached? >> i would like to see everyone tone down the rhetoric. i prefer we start to talk about the enormous challenges. you've been down the border and
6:21 am
understand that crisis. you had cory booker on. i'm a co-sponsor with him on the fair chance act. we voted in the first step act. those are things that president trump championed. so let's concentrate on the problems and start looking at some non-partisan solutions. >> i have a lot of questions about issues but i just feel like because this is the president of the united states, the leader of your party who won your state with votes from your constituents, i just -- it's incumbent upon me and you to be clearappoint -- >> the president didn't like the chant and i didn't like the chant. >> what about his tweet this morning saying they are not capable of loving the country? >> i mean, that's his opinion. i don't agree with it. >> all right. let's move on to talk about some of the big issues including international issues. iran seized two british tankers,
6:22 am
british tanker ships this morning in the straight of hormuz and on friday, this happened. they are still holding one of the ships captive now and this comes as the u.s. according to cnn reporting is looking at possibly being more hawkish in tone towards iran. so you chaired the homeland security committee and sit on the foreign relations committee. is the u.s. headed closer to war with iran? >> i hope not but let's face it, iran is an influence, the largest sponsor of terror since the founding back in the late '70s. you go down the list of the beirut bombing, their involvement in syria and yemen. that's why we're so opposed to the iranian agreement because it pushed and allows more than $100 billion of money to flow into the economy and military of the largest state sponsor of terror and by the way, as you see they
6:23 am
increased their enrichment of ukrai ukraiu it makes no sense they would go after the u.k. and are trying to divide and unite us and hopefully stand up to iran demanding they never have a nuclear weapon and to end their ballistic missile technology and their sponsor of terrorism around the region and world. >> let's talk about the border. you as homeland security chair, i know you have been working hard to come up with a bipartisan solution to the crisis there, the humanitarian crisis and the whole crisis overall currently. are you any closer to that as you're talking to your democratic colleagues behind the scenes? >> we took a good step but it's a baby step in signing a letter support for operation safe return where we rapidly and more accurately determine those
6:24 am
families that clearly don't have even a credible fear claim and safely. i under line safely return those individuals back to the safe zones of central america. now again, it's a first step but dana, you understand the overwhelming nature of the problem. i sent you that chart and your jaw dropped. since 2014, that was the humanitarian crisis when 120,000 unaccompanied children but primarily people coming as a family and entering ill legally and been disbursed over america and overwhelmed the adjudication system. we've only removed about 12,000 of 820,000 family members. that's about 1.5%. that creates a huge incentive for more people. there is a survey in guatemala, one-third of guatemalaens intend to migrant to the united states depopulating guatemala and
6:25 am
central america. that's not good for central america or us. there are so many components to the problem. the destroyed public institution is the drug cartel because of demand for drugs. the fact we create huge incentives and poll factors -- >> we have -- >> so -- >> we have so many -- >> i'm trying to work with the democratic congress to fix it. >> there is a very complex problem going on and has reached new heights in recent months but to figure that out, you have to have people who are willing to take a political hit from their own party and talk to people on the other side of the aisle. is that going to happen? >> i had three democrats join in the letter and that was doug jones and joe mansion and kirsten that led that effort. i was working closely with my ranking member gary peters and wanted to be constructive so i think there is goodwill in the senate to try and fix this
6:26 am
problem but all the come poepon. what do you do with the undocumented people in the work force. what do you do with 1.2 million people that have come in since 2012 daca. nobody is talking about what do we do with those vibindividuals? what do you do so people don't feel they want to move to america, economic migrants which is not an asylum claim. we can spend this entire program and barely scratch the surface of the problem but we have to start to reduce the flow of people coming in the country exploiting our broken asylum system, focus on that while we certainly try and help central america. >> well, you gave viewers i think a glimmer of hope there is actually a conversation being had between conservatives like you and maybe moderate democrats and liberals to try to get beyond the politics and fix the crisis. thank you, senator, appreciate
6:27 am
it. >> have a great day. >> thank you. president trump is dusting off his 2016 playbook that he brought with him to the white house as he runs for president a second time. will it work again? plus, democrats are cramming before the mueller hearings holding mock sessions and sharpening questions but are there political risks for the party? that's next. this is nice. yeah...yeah, this is nice. hmm. how did you make the dip so rich and creamy? oh it's a philadelphia-- family recipe. can i see it? no. philadelphia dips. so good, you'll take all the credit. eh, not enough fiber... chocolate would be good... snacking should be sweet and simple. the delicious taste of glucerna gives you the sweetness you crave while helping you manage your blood sugar. glucerna. everyday progress we carry flowers that signifyn why we want to end the disease. and we walk so that one day,

i was not happy with it. i disagree with it. but again, i didn't say, i didn't say that, they did. that stadium was packed. it was a record crowd and i could have filled it ten times, as you know. those are incredible people. those are incredible patriots. >> that was the president sending mixed signals on the send her back chants from his north carolina rally this past
6:32 am
week. he's back on twitter this morning writing quote, i don't believe the four congresswomen are capable of loving our country. let's discuss with our panel. who wants to start with this one? senator santorum? [ laughter ] >> look, the president is going to make this about patriotism and make it about this is his base, this is what he's going to talk about. i think that tweet sort of sums up where they will go going forward on this, that these not just these four, the squad but the broader democratic party are moving this country in a way that is fundamentally different than the traditional american values of a free economy and religious liberty and all the things that i think most americans hold dear, you see the progressive left sort of destroying that. >> that's a much better way of saying what he's saying. >> but if i -- >> here is the -- >> the point is if he said it
6:33 am
that way, no one would be talking about this this morning. >> correct. >> he says things to bring attention to these issues and i know it's hair on fire time for everyone on the left. we're talking about this. >> i'm not on the left. i'm a republican and it's hair on fire for me because it's disgusting and unamerican and this is not conservatism or patriotism. this is division and pure racism and marginalizing people who happen to have some criticisms of our country. i don't like those criticisms congressman, you know, th that, senator. there is a difference of pointing out the criticisms and turning americans against americans to get elected. >> but there is also an important difference as the black woman at this table, if you have not had somebody get in your face and say go back to africa, as a 6-year-old, what? it's confusing and upsetting.
6:34 am
it's an old racist troep to say go back to where you came from. to say it about four women of color, black and brown women when we know the fundamental issue is he's trying to stoke racism, bigotry and fear. he did it in 2016, it's what he's doing in 2020 and i'll tell you something, there is a poll that showed last month that actually independents don't like it. people feel embarrassed. people feel disgusted by it. hold on, i think that the danger for the republican party on this as your base continues to shrink, i don't know how you make an argument to women or people of color they should join the republican party, what we're seeing is as we saw in 2018, independence moderates moving away because they are so disgusted. >> let's get you in. >> good to know racism means that you're incredibly patriotic in 2019 america because i get told nearly every single day, dana, on the social media to go back home even though i was born and raised in this country and it's interesting they never
6:35 am
followed up with questions able my economic and political ideology. it's interesting donald trump tells four congress women of color, three born and raise in this country, remember that country ohio, that muslim country ohio, the country of ayanna pressley, she's told to go back home but bernie sanders isn't. he has a 13-second chant. think about this. what does it say about this country when donald trump ignites a native chant used against italians, eastern european jews and catholics, send her back for 13 seconds, basks in it and says those people are incredible patriots. the question i have are two questions. is it racist? it's racist, period. question i have. what are the repercussions of this racism, communities of color you can ask us and number two, is this the vision of america for republicans going forward? that 13-second clip of incredible patriots using a
6:36 am
native chant send her back home, is this the vision of america for republicans? >> it's not. here is the problem that you have in claiming that this is racist. i would agree the fact he picked out four women although they have sort of identified themselves as the quad squad so not like he picked them out. they are an identified group. the fact they are people of color is problematic. what he is criticizing them for is not the color of their skin, he's criticizing them for the positions they take. >> if they were white, would he say go back to your own country? >> if the squad included white people, he would be as equally critical. >> he would not say go back to your own country. >> that's exactly what he was doing. >> go back to frcalifornia. >> we covered mccain 2008. >> that's right. >> when i saw the center back moment, i immediately thought of john mccain. >> of course. >> not only did he have multiple
6:37 am
opportunities behind the scenes with his staffers to go low and to go racial and refused but there was a very public moment at a town hall when someone confronted him and said i don't like that obama, he's a muslim and john mccain said no he isn't. he said it immediately. >> family man -- >> immediately. listen. i was there for that rally and i think you were, too. it is a. i have one question before we go to break, i'm asking about the raw strategy as a republican that ran many campaigns. do you think this is the right strategy for the leader of the republican party? >> it's the right stralt gtegy o after democrats how extreme they are and these four people -- >> women of color. >> these four people exemplify in the worst possible terms in my mind how extreme the democratic party has gone. the fact there are four women of color is problematic and leads
6:38 am
to the issue of racism but here is the problem with democrats. every issue is a race issue. the democrats call wolf all the time on the issue -- >> not true. >> someway -- >> yourse're right. he's making it easy on this case u be the fa but the fact is they lost credibility. >> i call racism when racists behave like racists and this week donald trump had a chance to walk back and retweeted katy hopkins. she's an extremist so far to the right that the right in britain says we don't want her. a woman that says she wants a final solution on muslims, blame the jews in pittsburgh because she said the chief rabbi is promigrants and goes around with a white supremacist. she retweeted him four times. >> stand by, we'll talk about the fight to take on president trump. democratic governors have a warning for the democratic presidential candidates. the way your going, you're not

apart within minutes and ruin your drink and he mentioned this idea came after he was drinking out of a paper straw at an airport and it fell apart. >> important to understand, these are recyclable. plastic straws because a lot of the plastic straws are not recyclable and end up in the general waste. the trump campaign is being environmentally sensitive. plastic straws. >> let's get serious. this is a larger point about large cultural shift and people in parts of the country not getting it, not understanding it and hating it. >> yeah. >> here is the thing, you're right about that but i would rather have a president who tells me the truth than one who lies and says -- tries to tell you that we are not going to be a majority minority country. we already are. here here. we're not going anywhere. the guy that says those people -- it's your fault, their fault you don't have a job and didn't bring the jobs back. >> 15 seconds. i got to let s.e. get in. >> it's a much simpler argument
