borrowing $10,000 to get demirjian and elena schneider. married. consumer debt is going through the roof. so if you're going to have this we know those in the minority situation where you're going to hit the tariff with china and party often leave. it's bound to happen with each costs to average consumers will term but this is quite go up at walmart as a result of remarkable. what is this signaling? that, then it's nice to have >> this signals that the party lower interest rates in the midst of that. that's what i call the political is moving towards a party that economy. by the way, we need to deal with looks more like what president china. i'm glad that somebody's dealing trump's wing of the party is with it. going to look like. how you deal with it is the gop does not have a lot of important. >> there's two things there. women, a lot of people of color yes, you have the tariffs on and those it has it's been chinese products, it means trying to hold on to and use as everyone, american consumers are going to pay more for thing but the examples expand even on that lowering of the and grow our tent and be more interest rates, people are paycheck to paycheck. diverse looking and have a broader rang of perspectives as it sounds hopeful, like a good well. when you have people like hurd idea but you do that when you leaving and other members of of have the signs of a weak the texas delegation leaving, economy. why is this in your view this suggests that, first of all, the party is not speaking dangerous now? >> because people are not fap as widely as it could and some of these seats could not be in financially literal. folks are borrowing $10,000 to
play and that means the get married. democrats have an opportunity to seize additional seats, which consumer debt for auto loans, puts them even further back in consumer debt for student loans, terms of being in the minority. >> congressman hurd getting particular attention in part $1.5 trillion dollars. because he is the only black everybody needs a massive republican in the house of representatives. financial course, everybody. but the party also appears to be if you can't pay people more, struggling with women as well. we're haven't had a pay hike for the 70s for the middle class, in the mid terms democrats then treat them better, elected a record number of women financial well being at the while republicans fell to just workplace. america doesn't have a private 13 and two of those 13 women are banker. now retiring. that's what operation hope is so can this also be directly trying to do. >> who is the lowering of related to this administration? interest rates helping? >> it's helping investors, >> look, republicans are really facing a serious challenge as builders. it's helping people like me who they head into 2020 because in my other efforts are investing it in things. there are actually more jims it's really helping us. running for reelection in the if you don't embed financial house than there are republicans women. it gives you a picture of just litera literacy, it can hurt those who how deeply they are in terms of can now get cheaper credit but don't know how to pay that off appealing to the suburban women when it comes due. >> same question then, where are who were sofrp critical in 2018
that republicans need to win the gains for these tariffs on chinese products if it's going back in order to regain a foot to impact american consumers the hold in some of these key most, what's the best argument suburban seats, many of them in for this administration as to why it wants to do this? texas, including wil hurd's >> i think you got to deal with district, which sort of bleeds from the san antonio suburbs out china, as i said earlier. i'd really like them to deal into the rural part of the with intellectual property state. but pete olsen is nor -- another rights stealing. hello. they copy everything really well. you can't just let a bully get away with popping you in the nose. you got to deal with him. how you deal with them is everything. i don't think we're doing this district where republicans feel in an elegant way. they have an edge. it's very sort of gun schrenkl >> karoun, i wonder what kind of approach. i do commend them for dealing with them. impact it could make when you have massive unemployment congressman hurd perhaps still in black and brown elaborates further with what he neighborhoods, massive was struggling with, what unemployment for those who don't have a high school education, brought him to this point when it wasn't that long ago he who don't have a four-year talked about him being really degree. >> even though the president the face, representing a make up likes to tout the lowest ever of the enough republican you kns unemployment rate, particularly
bomb so to speak. >> right. it depends on what he chooses to among african-americans. >> it like when chris rock said say and what platform he has when he says it. wil hurd has been a critic of i never been to jail. many things that president trump you're not supposed to go to has said and done and he's been able to actually speak openly. jail. i get it. you played a clip how he it's great political sound bite criticized president trump's most recent tweets. but it's a crisis in of city i he's been able to do that go to every week. because people look to him as but these folks are hard working the voice he is specking for a and well meaning. it's what they don't know that certain wing of the gop but he's got a seat that's very important they tonight know. for him to keep. they never got the training. never got the memo. if they can keep him in that >> what do you like from the candidates who want to be seat, they can hold on to parts president? are you hearing a message that of the country that maybe were april dresses any of this from in jeopardy. these candidates? you have a little more latitude >> i think it's all short term. when you're a an elected member i'm hearing -- i don't want the of congress coming from the seat republican party, the democratic that you occupy. if he has a different political party, i want the get it done position or if he chooses to party. i want somebody to give me real have elected office at some point in the future or is speaking from a campaign berth, solutions and not somebody that makes me feel good. he may have more latitude to we were getting a lot of feel speak for openly but if he takes good, not capitalism isism or a step outside the gop and socialism but idealism, which
there's no longer anything for you can't pay for. the party to protect there and i want two plus two equals four, peacekeep more emphatically about the president than he he's and give america they can bank had to this point. wil hurd have very much what on. i want a political cease-fire on people want the symbol of the gop to become in the fut but poor people. many tombs the party has acted carve the people struggling living paycheck to paycheck out against it's long-term future it have so they can rely on some ben if the for the short-term salient facts and infrastructure game given that we're in an like financial literacy, like election cycle. some kind of a savings vehicle. two of your producers here got >> meantime, democrats who are their jobs through internships. let's have some cogent tax trying to be president are out in battleground nevada courting policy that rewards capitalists a key consistency and that would and biluilders for massive be unions. they are trying to appeal to blue collar workers we saw some internships. trying to do that at the detroit >> the availability of training debates, but how do they need to helps shrink the gap. >> sustainably and tepermanentl. either modify their strategy from what we saw on the deep peopleucation as bait stage now before this forum, which is now under way? >> well, look, i think that they

hear criticism by anybody about my city, what bothers me most is we have a situation where folks are stepping on the foot, on the hope of our children. i don't know what i would have done if i had people in high place when is i was a little boy telling me what i couldn't do. instead i had people telling me what i could do. somebody asked a question what do i want to say to the baltimore community. i want to thank you. i want to thank the johns hopkins of the world. i want to thank the underarmor of the world. they give to programs like this on a weekly basis, on a monthly basis. i want to thank the weinberg foundation, so many foundations and all of those people who have helped us to make sure that our
children grow up to be all that they can be. all right? that's it. i hope i gave you enough you can work with. >> you see there congressman elijah cummings of maryland, seventh detective there, responding to the week and a half that it has been particularly for him, starting more than a week ago the president of the united states tweeting out criticism of congressman cummings, calling his district, i'm quoting now, the worst run and most dangerous nip where in the united states, no human being would want to live there, insulting a host of people, not just the congressmen but then so many coming out in defense from actress jada pinket to our own victor blackwell, talking about how hurtful seeing those comments from a president of the united states about congressman cummings and how
