me of the wizard of oz. [laughter] who's come to talk to the great oz. [laughter] are all your doors that tall in britain? i mean, my goodness. stuart: look, neil, it's now 12 noon almost exactly. it's your time, so get on with it. good bye. neil: all right, jeez. the attitude, all right. sorry about the war, right, stuart? [laughter] all right. here's where we stand. we are about a minute away from the president and prime minister of britain, apparently they're trying to patch over some differences, as stu and ashley pointed out, the brits are a little upset, probably very much upset that the president asserted himself in this great argument back and forth as to whether the brits should extract themselves from the european union. they think that that's not his place. never mind though that brits, of course, when they come to the united states have pontificated on internal policies that we've had. for example, raging debates on
whether apartheid should be lifted many south africa, but it is what it is. it's a big source of contention, the mayor of london going is far as to say the president should butt out. but mr. cameron and the president have a special relationship, and they'll outline that right now. >> welcome. it's great to welcome president obama again on his fifth visit to the united king.com. barack has been president for more than seven years. i've been prime minister for nearly six years, and our two countries have been working together through some of the most difficult and troubled global times. we faced the aftermath of the banking crisis, the need to revive growth and create jobs in our economies, new threats to our security from russia and the east to the rise of islamist terrorism in the south. and, of course, huge global challenges like ebola and climate change. and through it all, the strong and essential partnership between our nations has never been more important. when 70 years ago last month winston churchill first
described the special relationship, it was not merely an enduring expression of friendship, the it was a way of working together. it was about two nations, kindred spirits who share the same values and so often the same approaches to the many issues that we face. and just as more our predecessors, that has been true for barack and me. whether we're working to deliver economic security, national security or new emerging challenges, and today we've been discussing all three. on economic security we've succeeded in getting our economies growing and creating jobs for our people. the global economy still faces serious challenges, but last year britain and the united states were the two fastest growing major economies in the world. and we both know just how important trade deals are in driving global growth, so barack and i remain the most determined to achieve our vision of a u.s./e.u. trade deal. and we're working hard to push this forward, because it would
add billions to our economies and set the standards for the rest of the world to follow. on national security together with our partners in the e.u., we've used our economic muscle to avoid the calamity of an iranian nuclear weapon. we've delivered sanctions against russia in response to its aggression against ukraine. we've secured the first-ever global and legally-binding deal on climate change being formally signed today by over 150 governments at the united nations. and we've transformed the way that we use our aid, our diplomacy and our military together to make progress on some of the most difficult issues of our time. for example, in east africa we've helped to turn around prospects for somalia. for instance, thanks to an e.u. operation led by britain, supported by america its waters are no longer a safe haven for pirates. and in west africa british leadership in europe secured a billion euros to support our efforts in helping the people of the region to defeat the
outbreak of ebola with britain taking the lead in sierra leone, the united states in liberia, france in guinea. but just as we made important progress in all these areas, there are many more that need a lot more work. there's no doubt that the situation in libya is immensely challenging, but we now finally have a government of national accord with whom we can work. while in syria and iraq we are continuing coalition efforts to defeat and degrade daish. more than 25,000 daish fighters have now been killed, over 600 in the last month alone with the total number of fighters now estimated to be at its lowest for about two years. the iraqi security forces are steadily pushing daish out of its territory. this week almost entirely clearing them out of the town of -- [inaudible] and in syria our partners have liberated the large kurdish areas in the northeast and cut off the main route between raqqa and mosul of we also
discussed -- in the u.k. we've maintained our borders, and we'll continue to do so. but we both know the challenge this poses to our friends and our allies and to the continent of europe. this is the sort of challenge that can only be tackled effectively through international cooperation. nato is helping to reduce the number of migrants in the eastern mediterranean, and barack and i have discussed how nato might now contribute to the e.u.'s efforts in the central mediterranean too. we also need to do more to break the business model of the people smugglers. so together with our e.u. partners and the libyan government, we'll look at whether there's more we can do to strengthen the libyan coast guard. barack and i will be discussing this further when we meet with the leaders of france, germany and italy in hanover on monday, and this will be another opportunity to show that how working together collectively, we can better protect ourselves from the threats that we face. we also covered a number of new and emerging challenges where
it'll be more important than ever that we work together with our international partners to identify problems and deal with them rapidly. just as we've done we ebola, we now need the same international cooperation on dealing with the zika virus, on the challenge of antimicrobial resistance, on cybersecurity and on tackling corruption. britain is holding a big anti-corruption summit here in london next month which secretary kerry will attend. and barack and i have talked today about some of the things we wanted to achieve. one of the biggest problems is that if you're a country that wants to take action against corruption, you have to go all around the globe to lobby for help. so we'd like to see an anti-corruption coordination center to help investigators and law enforcement work together right across different jurisdictions. and if we get international agreement this next month, both britain and america will help contribute to set it up. all this work we have done together, and at the same time i think we've gotten to know each other very well.
i'm honored to have barack as a friend. he's taught me the rules of basketball, he's beaten me at table tennis. [laughter] i remember very fondly the barbecue we had in number 10 downing street serving servicemen and women who serve our countries together here in the united kingdom. i've always found barack someone who gives sage advice, he's a man with a very good heart, and he's been a very good friend and always will be a good friend, i know, to the united kingdom. let me finish by saying this: in all the areas we've discussed today, our collective power and reach is amplified by britain's membership of the european union. let me be clear, when it comes to the special relationship between our two countries, there's no greater enthusiast than me. i'm very proud to have had the opportunity to be prime minister and to stand outside the white house listening to this man, my friend barack, say that the special relationship between our countries has never been stronger. but i've never felt constrained
in any way in strengthening this relationship by the fact that we're in the european union. in fact, quite the reverse. we deliver for our people through all the international groups that we're part of. we enhance our security through the membership of nato. we further our prosperity through the g7 and the g20. and like those organizations, britain's membership of the e.u. gives us a powerful tool to deliver on the prosperity and security that our people need. and to stand up for the values that our countries share. and now i think is a time to stay true to those values and to stick together with our friends and allies in europe and around the world. thank you very much. barack. >> thank you, david. and as always, it is wonderful to be here in london and to meet with my good friend, david cameron. i confess i've also come back to wish her majesty, the queen, a very happy 90th birthday.
earlier today michelle and i had the honor to join her majesty and his royal highness, the duke of eden borough, as their guests at windsor castle where we conveyed the good wishes of the american people. i have to say, i have never been driven by a duke of eden borough before -- [laughter] and i can report that it was very smooth riding. [laughter] as for her majesty, you know, the queen's been a source of inspiration for me, like so many people around the world. she is truly one of my favorite people, and should we be fortunate enough to reach 90, may we be as vibrant as she is. she's an astonishing person and a real jewel to the world and not just to the united kingdom. the alliance between the united
states and the united kingdom is one of the oldest and one of the strongest that the world's ever known. when the u.s. and the u.k. stand together, we make our countries more secure, we make our people more prosperous, and we make the world safer and better. that's one of the reasons why my first overseas visit as president more than seven years ago was here to london. at a time of global crisis. and the one thing i knew, as green as i was as a new president, was that it was absolutely vital that the united states and the united kingdom concern working together in an international forum -- tackle the challenges that lie ahead. our success depended on our ability to coordinate and to be able to leverage our relationship to have an impact on other countries. i met with david on that visit.
he wasn't yet prime minister. finish but just as our nations share a special relationship, david and i have shared an extraordinary partnership. he has proven to be a great friend and is one of my closest and most trusted partners. over the six years or so that our terms have overlapped, we have met or spoken more times than i can count. we've shared our countries' beers with each other. he vouches for his, i vouch for mine. [laughter] taken in a basketball game in america. david, i think you should recall we were actually partners in that ping-pong game. [laughter] and we lost to some school children. [laughter] i can't remember whether they were 8 or 10, but they were decidedly shorter than we were, and they whupped us. samantha and michelle have become great friends as well.
and if the depth and breadth of that relationship that has helped us tackle some of the most daunting challenges of our time. around the world our joint efforts, as david mentioned, have stopped the outbreak of ebola, helps iran from obtaining -- helped iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, forged a climate agreement in paris that hopefully will help to protect our planet for future generationings. and today -- generations. and today, on earth day, our governments along with about 170 others are in new york to sign that agreement. and the u.s. is committed to formally joining it this year which should help it take effect years earlier than anybody expected. we also discussed the full array of challenges to our shared security, and we remain resolute in our efforts to prevent terrorist attacks against our people and to continue the progress that we've made in rolling back and ultimately defeating isil. our forces, as david mentioned, are systematically degrading
isil's finances and safe havens and removing its top leaders from the battlefield. and we've got to keep working to improve security and information sharing across europe and to stem the flow of foreign fighters into and out of syria. we discussed our efforts toss resolve political conflicts in the middle east from yemen to syria to libya in order to increase the prospects for stability. in libya going toward, we have an -- going forward, we have the opportunity to support a new government and help libyans root out extremist elements. in syria, as challenging as it is, we till need to see more progress towards an enduring ceasefire, and we continue to push for greater humanitarian access to the people who need it most. we have to continue to invest in nato so that we can meet our overseas commitments from afghanistan to the aegean. we have to resolve the conflict in the ukraine and reassure allies who are rightly concerned about russian aggression. all nato allies should aim for
the nato target of spending 2% of their gdp on defense, something that david has made sure happens here in the u.k., to meet that standard. we discussed new actions we can take to address the refugee crisis including with our nato allies. and because a strong defense relies on more than just military spending, but on helping to unleash the potential of others to live freer and more prosperous lives, i want to thank the people of the united kingdom for their extraordinary generosity as one of the world's foremost donors of humanitarian aid. we talked about promoting jobs and stronger growth through increased transatlantic trade and investment so that our young people can achieve greater opportunity and prosperity. and, yes, the prime minister and i discussed the upcoming referendum here on whether or not the u.k. should remain part of the european union. let me be clear. ultimately, this is something that the british voters have to decide for themselves.
but as part of our special relationship, part of being friends is to be honest and to let you know what i think. and speaking honestly, the outcome of that decision is a matter of deep interest to the united states because it affects our prospects as well. the united states wants a strong united kingdom as a partner, and the united kingdom is at its best when it's helping to lead a strong europe. it leverages u.k. power to be part of the european union. as i wrote in the op-ed here today, i don't believe the e.u. moderates british influence in the world, it magnifies it. the e.u. has helped to spread british values and practices across the continue innocent. -- continent. the single market brings extraordinary economic benefits
to the united kingdom, and that ends up being good for america because we're more prosperous when one of our best friends and closest allies has a strong, stable, growing economy. americans want britain's influence to grow including within europe. the fact is in today's world no nation is immune to the challenges that david and i just discussed. and in today's world, solving them requires collective action. all of us cherish our sovereignty. my country's pretty vocal about that. but the u.s. also recognizes that we strengthen our security through our membership in nato, we strengthen our prosperity through organizations like the g7 and the g20. and i believe the u.k. strengthens both our collective security and prosperity through the e.u. in the 21st century, the nations that make their presence felt on the world stage aren't the nations that go it alone, but
the nations that team up to aggregate their power and multiply their influence. and preicely because -- precisely because britain's values and institutions are so strong and so sound, we want to make sure that that influence is heard. that it's felt. that it influences how other countries think about critical issues. we have confidence that when the u.k. is involved in a problem, that they're going to help solve it in the right way. that's why the united states cares about this. you know, for centuries europe was marked by war and by violence. the architecture that our two countries helped to build with the e.u. has provided the foundation for decades of relative peace and prosperity on that continent.
what a remarkable legacy, the legacy born in part out of what took place in this building before we walked out. i happened to see anything ma on display -- enigma on display. and that was a reminder of the incredible innovation and collaboration of the allies in world war ii and the fact that neither of us could have won that alone. and in the same way, after world war ii we built out the international institutions that, yes, occasionally constrained us. but we willingly allowed those constraints, because we understood that by doing so we were able to institutionalize and internationalize the basic values of rule of law and
freedom and democracy. that would benefit our citizens as well as people around the world. i think there's a british poet who once said no man's an island. even an island as beautiful as this. we're stronger together. and if we continue to tackle our challenges together, then future generations will look back on ours just as we look back on the previous generation of english and american citizens who worked so hard to make this world safer and more secure and more prosperous, and they'll say that we did our part. and that's important. that's important not just here, that's important in the united states as well. thanks. >> thank you very much.
all right. we've got some questions. we're going to start with a question from the british press. we'll have chris from itv. >> thank you very much, prime minister. chris from itv news. mr. president, you yourself acknowledge the controversial timing of your commenton the e.u. referendum and the spirited debate that we're having here. and i think you're right. in the weeks before your arrival here, lead campaigners have said that you're acting hypocriteically. america would not accept the loss of sovereignty that we have to accept as part of the e.u.. america would not accept the levels of immigration from mexico that we have to accept from the e.u. and, therefore, in various degrees of politeness, they have said to you that you should really keep your views to yourself. with that in mind, mr. president, do you still think it was the right decision to intervene in this debate, and
can i ask you this? crucially, what happens if the u.k. does decide in june to leave the european union? >> well, first of all, let me repeat. this is a decision for the people of the united kingdom to make. i'm not coming here to fix any votes. i'm not casting a vote myself. i'm offering my opinion. and in democracies everybody should want more information, not less. and you shouldn't be afraid to hear an argument being made. that's not a threat. that should enhance the debate. particularly because my understanding is that some of the folks on the other side have been ascribing to the united states certain actions we'll take if u.k. does leave the e.u.. so they say, for example, that, well, we'll just cut our own
trade deals with the united states. so they're voicing an opinion about what the united states is going to do. i figured you might want to hear it from the president of the united states what i think the united states is going to do. [laughter] and on that matter, for example, i think it's fair to say that maybe some point down the line there might be a u.k./u.s. trade agreement, but it's not going to happen anytime soon, because our focus is in negotiating with a big bloc, to european union, to get a trade agreement done. and u.k.'s going to be in the back of the queue. not because we don't have a special relationship, but because given the heavy lift on any trade agreement, us having access to a big market with a lot of countries rather than trying to do piecemeal trade agreements is hugely inefficient.
now, to the subject at hand, obviously the united states is in a different hemisphere, different circumstances, has different sets of relationship ares with its neighbors than -- relationships with its neighbors than the u.k. does. but i can tell you this. if right now i've got access to a massive market where i sell 44% of my exports and now i'm thinking about leafing the organization -- leaving the organization that gives me access to that market? and that is responsible for millions of jobs in my country? and responsible for an enormous amount of commerce and upon which a lot of businesses depend, that's not something i'd
probably do. and what i'm trying to describe is a broader principle which is in our own ways, i mean, we don't have a common market in americas. but in all sorts of ways, the united states constrains itself in order to bind everyone under a common set of norms and rules that makes everybody more prosperous. that's what we built after world war ii. the united states and the u.k. designed a set of institutions. whether it was the united nations or the bretton woods structure, imf be, world bank -- imf, world bank, nato, across
the board. now that, to some degree, constrained our freedom to operate. it meant that occasionally we had to deal with some bureaucracy. it meant that on occasion we had to persuade other countries, and we don't get 100% of what we want in each case. but we knew that by doing so everybody was going to be better off. partly because the norms and rules that were put in place were reflective of what we believe. be there were, if there were more free markets around the world and an orderly financial system, we knew we could operate in that environment. if we had collective defense treaties through nato, we understood that we could formalize an architecture that would deter aggression rather
than us having piecemeal to put together alliances to defeat aggression after it had already started. and that principle is what's at stake here. and the last point i'll make on this -- until i get the next question, i suspect -- [laughter] is that as david said, this magnifyies the power of the u.k. it doesn't diminish it. on just about every issue, what happens many europe is going to have an impact here. and what happens in europe is going to have an impact in the united states. we just discussed, for example, the refugee and the migration crisis, and i've told my team -- which is sitting right here, so they'll vouch for me -- that we consider it a major national
security issue that you have uncontrolled migration into europe. not because these folks are coming to the united states, but because if it destabilizes europe, our largest trading bloc, trading partner, that's going to be bad for our economy. if you start seeing divisions in europe, that that weakens nato. that'll have an impact on our collective security. now, if in fact i want somebody who's smart and common sense and tough and is thinking as i do in the conversations about how migration is going to be handled, somebody who also has a sense of compassion and recognizes that immigration can enhance when done properly the assets of a country and not just
diminish them, well, i want david cameron in the conversation. just as i want him in the conversation when we're having discussions about information sharking and counterterrorism -- information sharing and counterterrorism activity. precisely because i have confidence in the u.k., and i know that if we're not working effectively with paris or brussels, then those attacks are going to migrate to the united states and to london. i want one of my strongest partners in that conversation. so it enhances the special relationship. it doesn't diminish it. >> let me just make, chris, one point in response to that. i mean, this is our choice, nobody else's. the sovereign choice of the british people. but as we make that choice, it surely makes sense to listen to what our friends think, to listen to their opinion, to listen to their views, and that's what barack's been
talking about today. but it's also worth remembering as we make this choice, a british choice about the british membership of the european union. we're not being asked to make a choice about whether we support the german style of membership or the italian style of membership. britain has a special status in the european union. we're in the single market, we're not part of the single currency. we're able to travel and live and work in other european countries, but we've maintained our borders, because we're not in the no-border zone. and on this vital issue of trade where barack has made such a clear statement, we should remember why we are currently negotiating this biggest trade deal in the whole world and in the whole world's history between the european union and the united states. it's because britain played an absolutely leading part in pushing for those talks to get going. indeed, we announced them at the
g8 in northern ireland when britain was in the chair of that organization. we set the agenda for what could be an absolutely game-changing trade deal for jobs, for investment because we were part of this organization. so i just want to add those important points. i think we have a u.s. question now. >> just a -- justin singh. >> thanks, mr. president. following on that, do you think the migration issue european unicity -- unity is at a crisis point, what do you think leaders can do about it, and do you expect those nations to support the new government in libya to keep that situation from further straining wriewrp? i'm also wondering if maybe you could talk about when you plan to go to hiroshima when you visit japan -- >> oh, come on, man. >> in this one's for prime minister -- >> you're really stretching. >> i promise. prime minister cameron, the president's come here to tell the u.k. that as a friend and speaking honestly they should
stay in the e.u. as a friend and speaking honestly, what would you advise are american voters to do about donald trump? thanks. [laughter] >> i'll let you take -- >> that was predictable. >> i'll pick up that last one. >> i wouldn't describe european unity as in a crisis, but i would say it is under strain. and some of that has to do with the aftermath of the financial crisis and the strains we're all aware of with respect to the eurozone. i think it is important to emphasize, as david points out, that the u.k. is not part of the eurozone, and so the blowback to the british economy has been different than it is on the continent. but we've seen some divisions
and difficulties between the southern and the northern parts of europe. that's created some strains. i think the migration crisis amplifies a debate that's taking place not just in europe, but in the united states as well. at a time of globalization, at a time when a lot of the challenges that we face are transnational as opposed to just focused on one country, there is a temptation to want to just pull up the drawbridge, either literally or figuratively. we see that played out in some of the debates that are taking place in the u.s. presidential race. and that debate, i think, is accelerated in europe. but i'm confident that the ties
that bind europe together are ultimately much stronger than the forces that are trying to pull them apart. europe has undergone an extraordinary stretch of prosperity that may be unmatched in the history of the world. maybe i am matched in the history of the world. if you think about the 20th century and the 21st century, 21st century, europe looks an awful lot better. i think the majority of the europeans recognize that. they see that unity and peace have delivered sustained economic growth, reduced conflict, reduced violence, enhanced the quality of life of people. i am confident that that can
continue. i do believe that it is important to watch out for some of these fault lines that have developed. in that sense, i do think, which, if i am a citizen of the uk, i am thinking about it in terms of how is this helping me. how is this helping the uk economy. how is it creating jobs here in the uk. that is the right way to think about it. i do also think of sending a signal that is relevant about whether we built this together is going to continue. or whether the forces of division end up being more prominent. that is why, that is part of the reason it is relevant to the united states and why i have
been asked to weigh in on it. what were your four other questions? [laughter] i have to figure i knocked out to do that answer. with respect to libya, both david and i have discussed our commitment to try to assist this amazing government. it is a challenge, but, there are people within this government that are genuinely committed to building back up a state. that is something that we desperately want. both the united states and the united kingdom, but also a number of our other allies are more than prepared to invest in helping create border security in the bf. making sure that what could be a
thriving civil society, relatively small population, a lot of resources, not an issue where we should have you subsidized libya. much better issue then than other countries that we have been helping. we want to help provide that technil assistance to get that done. there is no plan for ground troops in libya. i do not think that that is necessary. i do not think that that would be welcomed by this government. it would send the wrong signal. what we can do is provide them with our expertise. we can provide them training. we can provide them a roadmap to how they can give basic services and build up legitimacy. i do think that the one area where both david and i are heavily committed is as this progresses, we cannot wait if
they are starting to get a foothold there. we are working, not just with the libyan government, but with a lot of our international partners to make sure that we are getting the intelligence that we need. in some cases taking action to prevent them from having another stronghold to which launch attacks against the united states. i think you have to wait until i get to asia to start asking me a shout questions. >> the question you asked me. this is not a general election. this is a referendum. this is a referendum that affects the people of the united kingdom very deeply. it also does affect others in the european union. it affects america about canada, australia, new zealand. as i look around the world, it is hard to find a country that
wishes britain well. that thinks we ought to be in the european union. i think that that is, again, our choice. we will make the decision. people want the fax. they want the arguments. they want to know the consequences. listening to our friends, listening to countries that wish us well is part of the crisis. as for the american elections, i have made some comments in recent weeks and months. now is a moment to add to or subtract from them. i think just as the prime minister has and threw to general elections, you always look on in all of the scale of the process in the length of the process.
>> fortunately, we are term winners. [laughter] i, too can look in awe at the process. >> thank you, mr. president. you have made your views very plain. in the interest of good friends always being honest, are you also saying that our decades old special relationship has been through so much would the fundamentally damaged and changed by our excess. if so, how. do you have any sympathy with people who think that this is none of your business? prime minister to you, if i may. some believe that it is wrong that you have draft our closest ally into the eu campaign. what do you say been and then and is it appropriate for the mayor of london to have brought up president obama's ancestry
into this debate? >> first of all, questions for boris are questions for boris. they are not questions for me. i do not have some special power over the president of the united states. barack feels strongly about this and saying what he said. our decision of the people. the choice you make about europe that i think is right to listen to and consider. the advice of your friends. amplify amplifying one of the reports that brock made. we have a shared interest in making sure that europe makes a robust approach to russians aggression. a sanction that we put in place to the european union. i think i can put my hand on my heart and say that britain played a really important role in continues to play an important role in making sure
that the sanctions were put in place and kept in place. this is in our interest. it is in our interest for europe to be strong against aggression. not to be at that table and potentially to see those sanctions not take lace. i think it has been there working between written and the united states over this issue. that does help to make a big difference. i am passionate about it. i believe it very, very deeply. for the reasons of the history and the future of our country. the stronger britain and a stronger america, the stronger that relationship will be. i want britain to be as strong as possible. we have all sorts of things in this country. the fifth largest economy in the world.
we were discussing about how well they work together. brilliant universities. the fact that we are members of nato. we also draw strength and project strength and project power and protect our people and make our country and people wealthier by being in the european union. i want britain to be as strong as possible. the stronger britain is, the stronger our special relationship this in the morning we can get done together. the development that we want to see across the world feared to me, it is simple. stronger britain. stronger special relationship did that is in the interest of the united states of america as well. >> let me start with winston churchill. [laughter] i do not know if people are
aware of this, on the second floor, my office, my private office is called the treaty room. and right outside the door of the treaty room, so that i see it every day, including on weekends when i'm going into that office to watch a basketball game, the primary image i see is a bust of winston churchill. it is they are voluntarily because i can do anything on the second floor. [laughter] i love winston churchill. i love the guy. now, when i was elected as president of the united states, my predecessor had kept it in the oval office.
there are only so many tables where you can put that. otherwise it starts looking a little cluttered. i thought, it was appropriate. i suspect most people here in the united kingdom may agree. the first african-american president, it may be appropriate to have doctor martin luther king in my office. to remind me of all of the hard work of a lot of people who would somehow allow me to have the privilege of holding this office. that is just on winston churchill. i think many people should know that. with respect to the special relationship, i have a staff member, who will not be named,
it may embarrass her a little bit. who generally on foreign trips does not leave the hotel or the staff room because she is constantly doing work making this happen. she has had one request the entire time that i've been president. that is good she accompanied me on the off chance that she might get a peek at her majesty the queen. and gracious as she is, her majesty, actually had this person, a long with a couple others line up so that as we went to lunch they could say hello. this staff person was a tough as they come, almost fainted. i am glad she did not because it
would have caused an incident. that is a special relationship. we're so bound together. nothing is going to impact the emotional and cultural and intellectual affinities to between our countries. i do not come here suggesting that that is impacted by the decisions of the people of the united kingdom they make around whether or not they are members of the european union. that is fair. that is solid. that will continue, hopefully, internally. do nato, or g7, through g 20. all of those things will continue.
if one of our best friends is in an organization that enhances the power and enhances their economy, then i want them to stay in it. or at least i want to be able to tell them, you know, i think that this makes you guys bigger players. i think this helps your economy. i think that this helps to create jobs. ultimately, it is your decision. precisely because we are bound that the hip. i want you to know that before you make your decision. margaret brenner. >> thank you very much, sir. mr. president, vladimir putin has not stopped assad as he led you to believe he would here it the cease-fire in syria appears to be falling apart.
will you continue in what looks to be a losing strategy? warning citizens traveling to north carolina and mississippi about l'affaire that affect transgender individuals. as a friend, what do you think about those laws? if you would indulge us, prince. >> indulge all of us back in the u.s., sir. prince passed away. you are a fan. you had invited him to perform at the white house. can you tell us what made you a fan? >> i am trying to figure out which order to do this. maybe i will start with north airline and mississippi. i want everybody here in the united kingdom to know that people of north carolina and mississippi are wonderful people. they are hospitable people.
you are welcome and you should come and enjoy yourselves. i think you will be treated with extraordinary hospitality. i also think that the laws that have been passed their are wrong. they should be overturned and in response to politics in part, some strong emotions that are generated by people, some of whom are good people, but i just disagree when it comes to respecting the equal rights of all people regardless of sexual orientation. whether they are transgender or gay or lesbian. although i respect their different viewpoints, i think that it is very important to not send signals that anyone is treated differently. i think that it is fair to say
that we are not unique among countries where under a federal system in which power is dispersed that there will be some localities or local officials that put together a blog that are not necessarily reflected with a national consensus. if you guys come to north carolina and mississippi, everyone will be treated well. the second question with respect to syria. i am deeply concerned about the nations frame. and to whether it is sustainable. now, keep in mind that i have always been skeptical about mr. putin's actions and motives inside of syria. he is the preeminent anchor of a murderous regime. i do not believe it can regain legitimacy. within his country because he
has murdered a lot of people. having said that, what i also believe is that we cannot and the crisis in syria without political negotiations. and without getting all of the parties around the table to craft a transition plan. that by necessity means that there will be some people on one side of the table to buy deeply disagree with and whose actions are deeply aboard. that is how, often times, you resolve conflicts like this. taking a toll on the people. this has actually held longer than i expect it. and for seven weeks we have seen a significant reduction in
violence. back is a relief to some people. i talked talk to putin on monday, precisely to reinforce to him the importance of us trying to maintain this. asking him to put more pressure on assad. indicating to him that we would continue to try to get the moderate opposition to stay at the negotiating table in geneva. this has always been hard. it will keep being hard. what we discussed in our meeting was we will continue to prosecute war against. we will continue to support those that are prepared to fight i sold. we will continue to target them. we will continue to make progress. we will not solve the overall problem unless we can continue
to get this threat moving. i assure you that we have looked at all options. none of them are great. we will play this option out. if in fact it falls apart, we will try to put it back together again even as we continue to go after i sold. it is in my belief that ultimately, russia will recognize that just as this cannot be solved by military victory on the part of those that we support, russia may be able to keep the lid on alongside iran for a while. if you do not have a legitimate government they are, they will be bled as well. that is not speculation on my
part. i think that the evidence all points in that direction. finally with respect to prince, i love prince because he put out great music. he was a great performer. i did not know him well. he came to perform at the white house last year and was extraordinary. creative and original. full of energy. and so, it is a remarkable loss. the u.s. ambassador, it so happens that our ambassador has a turntable. this morning, we played purple rain and delirious just to get warmed up before we left the house for an important bilateral meeting. [laughter] >> great music. brought a lot of brilliant
talent. north carolina. many years ago. one day i hope to make it to mississippi. it obviously deals with more of the situation. it tries to give that advice. it is very important that it does not. any of these things that we think we should try to use. obviously, the laws in the legislature. it is the importance to try to end discrimination. it was privately. with that, thank you very much. >> thank you.
>> the speech from the prime minister and the president of the united states, they are on the same page. great britain's remaining on the part of the european union. a push right now. really led i the mayor of london. a real conservative who is saying that is really not in the country's best interest. for those either for or against those staying in the union, the president's opinion on this and weighing in on this is putting into the affairs. the mayor of london on this, just butt out. it is none of your concern. something that has been echoed by many. do not wait into our affairs. even though countries do just
that. this comes at a time where the pretense are almost evenly divided on this subject. about 5050 staying in the european union. the prints are not hard at the european currency. they still have their precious pounds. they would still keep that pounds, although, it would lead them to picking up that european currency. just offering his opinion and prime minister cameron saying he welcomes that opinion. as a friend. first to you. did the president is some of that tension or did he compounded? >> i think that he definitely compounded the attention. britts do not like american presidents coming over and telling them what to do.
also, i think that he mischaracterized the situation. britain would be stronger if it remained in the eu. look at the growth in the eu. it is about 1% less. eurocrats in brussels imposed lots of regulation on the british people. i thought that it was really impolite to say that if britain left the eu, he would put trade with britain on a back burner after everybody else. >> one of the things that has been very difficult with the president, beginning with saudi arabia and trying to ease the attention, it shows potential 9/11 attacks on the eve of concerns that we will not only release those pages, but allow victims families in this country to sue the saudis.
i do not know how successful the trip was. they are still hurt feelings on both sides. now weighing in on the british matter, he wraps things up in germany. what is your sense of how this trip is going? >> the obama fatigue. he seems exhausted and our allies seem exhausted. seven years that have not been in their best interest. you look at the uk. when the president landed, there were 100 years of parliament. these are from different poetic all parties. asking the president not to weigh in on something that was not of his concern. talking about the trade deal, he will have left office, even if it eu votes in, excuse me, printed votes to get out. he will have left office before there can be any ramifications on trade deals.
when it comes to saudi arabia, that was a much icier trip for him. clearly, they did not meet with him. they are less concerned about the 28 pages. actually asking the u.s. government for those pages to be unclassified. the lawsuit is something that they are concerned about. the fact that the policies of this president has pursued over the past seven years in the middle east have emboldened the biggest enemy in the middle east. neil: the king and his surrogates did meet with the president. >> they met at the airport, yeah. neil: secretary, it is always risky when someone comes in. a foreign leader into a country. they are knee-deep in the middle of a raging debate. he or she cannot avoid trouble.
sort of scolding the prints on not being more. you cannot win in these situations. what is the protocol on that? you know protocol better than i. help me with this. how is that done? can you hear me? >> i am sorry. neil: what is a protocol on leaders coming to another country and staying there opinion versus shutting up? >> there is no official protocol. there is only the politeness of not going into the country and intervening in the politics particularly when it is a close split in the public opinion by the uk. we all understand that prime minister cameron who supports britain's exit from the european
union, he wants to have president obama as an ally. there is not just the mayor of london, boris johnson. officials inside the uk. a former member of the cabinet. also opposing this. i was really surprised by how much time president president obama spent in that press conference going over this. i do not think that it will go over very well. >> i always wonder what is the difference when a leader does something like this. mayberent latitude. pope francis started talking about our treatment of illegals. maybe the pope gets a pass. he is stating his opinions. getting too political. what do you make of that? the mac the pope is generally
given a pass. politics is not his main job. people understand that he is going after issue from a religious perspective. hoping that healthy immigrants. it is obvious that there is an agenda in mind. he does not have a strong grasp of the facts. britain has a trade deficit with the eu. the eu would be crazy with not signing. there are other former countries associated with britain such as australia and new zealand. it is difficult to import to britain right now. there are other markets over there that other countries affected did plus, the whole migrant problem in the eu.
at the very least, it should be more into a trade zone and less into a harmonization of regulation and taxation. >> i want to thank you all. prince harry is coming along for that dinner. i do not know what is on the menu. we will keep you posted. a lot more before it gets back to the united states. isis. reporting that the border is indeed a place where there are porous opportunities. getting into the united states. i told you so, but it is far too
much. now, isis is confirming it. my next question is, are they just breaking about something that has not happened yet or have they in fact succeeded in doing just what they said they have? >> you should generally believe isis when they save ink. there will be a retaliation from the arrest. they said they were going to introduce operatives among the refugee and they did. i think it is difficult of some will eventually be penetrated i agents of isis. that seems inconceivable that they would not do that at this point. >> making and argument. we certainly have seen isis sympathizers.
>> well, i would suspect that it is not a great number. particularly across the canadian border. the difference between canada and mexico is there is real cool old law. what makes mexico not so dangerous is the drug cartel, the rule of law has broken down for this on the mexican side. i would say probably not a lot. i would be very surprised if they were not people in the united states that have not fought in serious. maybe a half dozen or so. neil: all right. thank you very, very much. we get reports of this tunnel keeping under any presumed wall. connell mcshane following very closely in delaware. hey, connell.
connell: hey there, neil. maybe something that term can talk about in his new speech we're talking about and foreign-policy. a merging here in following this trump campaign. two side-by-side campaigns by the same person. we have news just in from the campaign. an announcement that mister trump will make a foreign-policy speech next month in washington, d.c. part of an effort to make him appear more presidential. you would not expect to see that type of talk in a setting like this. thousands of people lined up outside. many are pouring in to hear what they have already heard from their man in the campaign trail. watch this. >> my wife is constantly saying, darling, be more presidential. i just do not know that i want to do it right yet because we
have a job to do. at some point i will be so presidential that you people will be so bored. i will have about 150 people and they will say, poet boy, he really looks presidential. connell: maybe you will say that next week in washington. down in florida yesterday. really making some headlines. he said the following behind closed doors. when he is out on the stage, when he is talking about the stuff, his projected image. that is for that purpose. starting to see more depth. you will see a different guy. the first concrete example of that new image next week. the national press club in d.c. next wednesday. neil: all right, connell.
they give very, very much. jim, good to have you back with us. what do you make of that? he will be presidential. maybe as soon as next week. a series of foreign-policy statements. what do you make of that? >> he has had a very unusual campaign. things that he said in the past have caused his numbers to go up. i would not be the one to predict. i would have thought he would have thought more about foreign-policy by now. this deep into the campaign. i am happy to see that he is planning to do it next wednesday. neil: there has been this back-and-forth was mister trump going after the republican establishment, for lack of a better word. i guess by extension, a bit party insider like you.
getting that nomination. world changes making it more difficult for him to get the nomination. how do you feel when he says that kind of stuff? >> first of all, i do not have a candidate in this race. i will support the nominee of our party, whomever it is. neil: not going to the convention. some people read into that. still angry, still does not like the guy. mainstream candidates. competitive and very successful and very affect of like jeff has. four trump to say those things, the system is rigged. it is corrupt. you know, flamboyant, insightful
rhetoric. they have a set of rules. really, the rules of the party in some ways since it has been a party. >> the big rule is the 1237. almost half the delegates plus one. i understand that. trump people always say, they are afraid you are going to do something else. trying to make it more difficult allowing other candidates to comment after say, two ballots. it is not just in this case the ones who would qualify. ted cruz and donald trump going at it again and again. do they have a point? should it just be trump and cruz? going at it in multiple pallets, if need be.
>> the rules are the rules. nobody gets the 1237 on the first ballot or the second ballot. most of the delegates are bound. the second about half of them become unbound. if there are subsequent ballots and it looks like there is sort of a deadlock over those, the people chose at the grass roots levels. they may decide to resolve this and they will go after something else. >> 70 plus% of those delegates are trump or cruz. i do not know how many. >> yes, there is precedent for that. the fact that you have the most votes going into the convention does not ordain that you ought to get the most delegates
either. ronald reagan had a million more votes than gerald ford. gerald ford had more delegates. he got the nomination on the first ballot. >> abraham lincoln on the third valid. james garfield who was not even running. 1880. i enjoyed covering it. it is always good having you. thank you very much. >> always good being with you, neil. the same drama is going on now. everyone. what are we going to do? thank you. did not live very long. hillary clinton. a world of trouble to young voters. young voters, the guy in the white house right now. what does that say? after this. ♪
neil: whatever you want to call -- i always think, how did that meeting go. people are laughing at the name google. that is what it is. the earnings his appointment last night is not sitting well with investors today. those shares down more than 6%. it is what it is. you get it. [laughter] all right. i am trying here. work with me. hillary clinton is trying to say the same thing to young voters. work with me. even when bernie sanders steps out.
she is growing very confident. having no choice but to hang it up. bernie sanders is their candidate. by an overwhelming margin. how she tries to woo them back. democratic strategist extraordinaire. one weak link. an african-american vote in almost a total loss. she does area well with women. by and large, it is this group. men and women. is she worried? is she panicking? what? >> something the clinton campaign is indeed looking out. honestly, anticipated in a lot of states. we need to be looking at it. i think that they are. what unites us is more than what divides us.
very good language to start making those overtures. how they talk to young people. they have to start using language that young people identify with. this is the economy that i am living with. they say they actually really do not believe that the private market will take care of them. they live through the crash. seeing their parents. clinton needs to be able to start using language that identifies balance. she actually does have policy. even bernie sanders on the left. particularly young people. they speak clearly. for young people, particularly feeling that.
you do not see that in a traditional candidate did they say you do not see that out of hillary clinton. would it be too late? is that youth vote up for grabs? let's say trump is a nominee. it could very well go to him. a large percentage of the vote going to trial. a lot of merlin neil say they support sanders right now and would be open to supporting clinton and would vote for her in the and. a third of his supporters are saying no way, no how. i do not think that they go to trump, is that thing. i think that that has been a challenge for the last cycle. actually not the same thing for republicans. it seems very antiquated to young people.
neil: all right. interesting. great scene. thank you. shares are up 24%. something that i recommended. you may want to consider all you can eat fries. you may want to get rid of all salads and anything healthy. two out of three is not bad. just wait. after this. ♪ it's intelligent enough to warn of danger from virtually anywhere. it's been smashed and driven. it's perceptive enough to detect other vehicles on the road. it's been shaken and pummeled. it's innovative enough to brake by itself, park itself and help you steer. it's been in the rain... and dragged through the mud. the 2016 gle.

nevertheless, i thought that it was a hit. i digress. >> i do not know why people do not get it. >> what to make about what the markets are telling us now? they can reverse a lot of this. selling patterns. it may be going away. also, the fact that earning numbers, they pretty much bombed google, microsoft, facebook is next week. even starbucks which is a great retailer. i think earnings numbers are showing a little bit of caution here.

i've researched more than 450 financial products. i found that one of the best-kept secrets to help you plan for your retirement is the home equity conversion mortgage. it's a line of credit for homeowners age 62 or older. and it's offered by a company you can trust- one reverse mortgage, a quicken loans company! call one reverse mortgage now to get the details. their licensed experts will tell you if you're eligible, show you the line of credit amount you qualify for, and will send you a free information kit. the home equity conversion mortgage line of credit is even better than a traditional line of credit... because you can make payments if you'd like, but no monthly mortgage payments are required; this program is government insured; and the money available to you increases every year. for example, if your 100,000 dollar line of credit remains untouched, it could increase to 300,000 or more, years later.
so the sooner you start your line of credit, the more money you could have access to in the future. i've educated thousands of financial planners -- many are including the home equity conversion line of credit in their client's retirement plans. while this product is good if you need financial help now, it's even better if you want to strengthen your retirement plan for later. it offers a wide range of flexibility for every homeowner age 62 or older. i believe this is a smart financial tool and i recommend that every homeowner who qualifies consider getting one now. call one reverse mortgage right now to get the details, find out if you qualify and get your free information kit.
neil: all right. you think wall street fat cats are paid too much? so does the administration. there is an effort to rein in ceo pay by sort of extending out the time period which they can grasp on to that greedy pay. many times maybe up to four or five years, or more before they can take advantage of generous stock options, stock grants, even underlying pay packages themselves. the idea here is to make the less devil may care daredevils at our expense but charles payne and steve lieb worries offset is a lot of those jobs leave wall street and go elsewhere. good to see both of you. steve, what is your biggest worry here? >> steve, in general, my biggest worry for the country there is no long term thinking and on those grounds this is like a baby step. it can't be just alone. the thing that really core worries me that we can't scapegoat wall street.
wall street is the not reason we have 3.2 million words in our tax code. that is seven times the numbers of words in war and peace? it would take them five years to go through all the regulations. neil: charles, you say banks are not without fault but washington gave them ammunition. >> first thing, stop bailing them out. neil: absolutely. >> if you want to real in bad behavior stop encouraging it and backstop it. neil: they always know we're so big no one will let us. >> this is ridiculous. bail them out every time of course they will take risk. when they win, they win and when they lose they win. >> right. neil: would you say pay packages are out of whack? >> i don't think government has the right to determine how much somebody pays. i saw a company where ceo made $38 million. more than the company made. if i was shareholder i would be upset that is it between the shareholder around ceo. neil: not the government. >> i don't disagree with anything charles is saying. i don't think we should necessarily bail these people
out, i agree with that, we should not. we can't view this issue in isolation. this is country that gone ultrashort term. michael lewis wrote a book called "flash boys." that is making money in nanoseconds. how does that help the economy? we need desperately infrastructure in this economy. i know i made this point before. where is the interstate highway system? where is apollo? we can't create that if you have a lease, if i'm signing a lease on simple office that takes 40 pages with 20 or 30 years ago -- neil: what does that have to do with wall street pay? >> a lot. wall street looking to make a deal. they don't have time, get through rules and regulations. neil: one of the things that comes of, if you're going to police pay on wall street, believe me, off the charts but off the charts of entertainment world. off the charts in a lot of other fields so be careful what you wish for. you want to rein it in, start going after some other. >> yeah. i mean as far as, i don't know
how much economic benefits the world gets when a-rod hits a home run. i will say this much. you know -- we can take all the money we want from wall street billionaires. we can take it all from all the billionaires. a person without any kind of job skills, who can't weld, who can't code, wake up the next day with those skills? so to your point i do agree we're overlooking long-term problems. >> that is my major point. >> this is low-hanging fruit, everybody blames rich people, particularly wall street but that is not the solution. >> that is exactly right. that is maybe a baby part of the solution. that should go along. everybody should be incentivized to think long term in this economy. neil: should it be structured into law, you're telling a company, any company this is how we think -- >> i don't think it should be structured. neil: with the argument being, this is different industry because the american people depend on it? >> no.
we have to, you know, look, my era, that is a long time ago. but i grew up thinking that saving money was a good thing because you wanted to defer gratification, because that allowed you to build a better economy. we've got to get back to that mind set. neil: that is what the administration is doing here. >> well there is a difference making a legal thing and making it forbidden do that. neil: i agree with charles. let the companies decide. >> the companies should died and should be motivated to do this. should get bonus points on tax returns or something like that. >> listen, stop bailing them out. that will eliminate a lot of things right then and there. now the seven-year claw-back thing is really dangerous. >> that i don't like. neil: they can -- >> we, our economy is cyclical. something will go wrong in seven years. essentially what they're trying to do is steal from these guys. >> the way i answered your question, neil, is basically, i want to just, anything we can do
to make long-term thinking very, very critical again or else i fear for this country if we can't do that. neil: well-put. gentlemen, thank you very, very much. meanwhile the president and prime minister cameron in britain wrapping up a press conference which they both indicated their support for britain remaining in the european union. former u.k. parliament member john brown here on all of that. you know, john, when you hear this back and forth, a lot of brits are upset including the mayor of london, mr. president, but out, it is really none of your business but i'm thinking of your former great prime minister winston churchill when he would come to this country and sort of weigh in on racial riots going on, that was appalling. so is there really much damage done when friends sort of weigh in and speak of friends what is going on? >> well, i think you're talking about a general subject like riots and things like that, human relations thing. here we're talking about a political vote, of the future of
the united kingdom. in other words if we don't come out, we will remain united kingdom. if we stay we're divided into 11 regions each reporting directly to brussels, the united kingdom will have vanished there. is no special relationship. there is just the general relationship with europe. it is crucial thing. no wonder i think the british people are very upset that two globalists -- neil: i'm not taking sides. how is that different behind the scenes winston churchill working with franklin roosevelt, changing american's people sense of staying away from the world war gripping everybody us but the united states to coax us into involvement, to tell americans what is at stake? >> neil, your absolutely right. it was behind the scenes. that is the main difference. neil: okay. >> when you have a foreign president come in, not only trying to propagandize and use words to persuade the vote and influence the threat but
threaten britain with trade disagreements afterwards it is absolutely disgraceful in my opinion. what happens if the brits beg out of this. they don't have the currency. now they will be out of the union. they have had economy done better than a lot of individual european union members and certainly the european union itself. they say, well, that is not a club worth joining. what is the fallout when that happens? >> first thing is britain's trade, about 60% is with europe because the tariff situation means we can't trade with our kin so easily like canada, north america, new zealand, we trade with europe, but do so with deficit of 24 billion a year. that deficit will vanish on high net contribution which is second highest in europe to running european union will stop. that money will be spent on britain and developing reconstituting our trade relationships with countries like canada, america, australia and new zealand.
we'll be far better out. most important thing britain will remain as britain and not be divided into nebulous regions, some teamed with portugal, france, germany and holland and decimated. so the biggest thing is that britain will remain as britain and with a very special relationship with the united states. neil: all right. john, always good chats. thank you. >> thank you very much. neil: john bowne. yesterday at this time we were getting details of the death of prince and raised the possibility that something untoward led to this. could it have been drugs? some signs today possibly, possibly. after this.
reporter: live on the floor of the new york stock exchange. all three indices trading down right now. dow, s&p 500 and nasdaq in negative territory. nasdaq actually went negative for the week. let's take a look at some of the stocks weighing heavily on the dow. for instance, google missed on earnings and revenue. investors not happy with that that stock is down 6%. spending more money on traffic acquisition costs as they shift toward mobile. see advertisement on apple device, you have to pay apple for driving of the ad. google paying more for traffic acquisition costs 13%. google -- sales globally for
still can't believe that was yesterday at this time we were just getting the details on the tragic death of the 57-year-old pop star prince. now we're getting indications what might have triggered it and that is raising a whole lot of concerns. "in touch weekly"'s kim serafin joining us now. what are we learning? >> yeah, you mentioned at this point yesterday nobody really knew what was going on but now as the day has gone on you know, there are now these reports coming in about this could have been related to a drug overdose, which has been reported by "tmz." but this goes back to that incident a week ago. he did these concerts in atlanta and flying back to his home in minnesota. the plane made an emergency landing. at the time everyone was told he was being treated for the flu. he went to the hospital. he was there for three hours. weighs treated, went back home. he did a concert at his home recording studio on saturday. he didn't sing at concert and appeared, made a statement, went
out to the crowd to show everyone he was doing okay. said something like, save your prayers for me. don't waste your prayers on me right now, i'm fine. so it is very interesting now that we're hearing other reports, although again this is being reported. we will not know what the result is until this autopsy is done, until toxicology reports come out as well. neil: then there were these pictures that "tmz" got showing he made at least three or four visits to an area drugstore over the span of little more than 24 hours. what, do we know what that was about? whether it could have been prescription drug issue? separately i heard reports he was having labored breathing over the last week. i don't know what's right. >> exactly and you're exactly right in saying that nobody really knows because it is so different than the persona we knew about prince. he was doing these amazing concerts a week ago, not looking like he had the flu. there are different medical
reports saying this could have been the flu, was this exacerbated by the drugs or flu? nobody knows really in the medical condition. it really goes against everybody everything you new about prince. he was never known as celebrities involved in drugs that you heard reports. this comes as a shock to a lot of people because there is certainly celebrities you hear stories about and rumblings about and wouldn't be a surprise for sop celebrities this is not something people knew a lot about or not something associated with prince. in fact he was very private person. the thing you heard most about prince is his music. that is what people are talking about most of all. these are the reports. everyone wants to know exactly what happened. if you look at celebrations not just around the country, but around the world, celebrating his music, celebrating his life, celebrating who he was, creating a path for some musicians in terms of musical style or ownership of their music, copyright protection, this is something prince is being
remembered for and known for more than any antics in his personal life. neil: you're right. that part is just not jiving. kim, thank you very much. meantime you probably heard donald trump is trying to sort of look who are presidential. he is planning scripted speeches, some thoughtful statements on foreign policy for example, so is it possible to change your image? we have a great psychiatrist, psychologist, she is wrote a book, namely geared to women how life progresses they can change their focus but we want to extend this to men. even well-known men, well-known, public figures. can they change the image that they have and then what? after this.

neil: probably heard donald trump bringing in big people to become more presidential and policy speech next week and that would be also very presidential. he is trying to change his image. along comes my good friend, she has helped us out over the years. she talks about these issues in tank against sense your best age is now and mainly geared to women. i asked the good doctor why only targeted at chicks. she said she was offended by that but we'll move on. donald trump is doing what a lot of women who talked to you and sought guidance in big life changes have addressed, changing an image. easier said and done. >> so the interesting thing about midlife, what we didn't know before was a time we wouldn't change -- neil: what is midlife?
>> midlife i think now is 40 to 62. once you consider yourself old age, basically when you left midlife. nobody wants to consider themselves as part of old age. i think people are considering themselves younger longer which is positive. and identifying themselves as entering into midlife much, much later. there was a study where women identified themselves as entering midlife at 53. neil: really? >> which in the 70, passages which talked about midlife crisis was 35. so there is really -- neil: you get into women particularly have that, when your kids are grown up, out of the house and wrestling with these issues but i want to bring to current events if you don't mind. >> donald. neil: donald trump what got him this far, inpolitic, in your face, some say crass style. can he tone it down? can he make that move?
have the people who you helped make that move? how do you make that move? >> first it comes from desire. you have to want to change. you choose a role model. who do you want to be like and then you create a path. neil: but if everyone knows you as one type of person how do you -- >> right. neil: everyone knows donald trump. >> people forget. people really do forget. they will based their opinion based on their most current experience with you, both positive and negative. so if donald from here on in presents himself as presidential and somebody who could be trusted and relied on to not be impulsive in a dangerous way, that, i think people would be inclined to believe in him. neil: you talk about people fall into traps. they're all traps. they're all like, psychos sees, whatever you want to describe it. >> right. neil: he seems to fall back into when he says i'm not going to call names anymore. when he won new york, it was like senator cruz. it was governor kasich. >> yeah. neil: and 12 hours later it was lyin' ted! some people can't
help themselves. >> donald trump when he won in new york he was able to be presidential, now he is in the game again he has too much fun creating names that stick. neil: but he is 69 years old. so he outside that -- >> agewise. but in terms of his mind set he is very kind of energetic. he is very passionate. neil: rap against older people that they are not. >> if he wants to be. i think it is dangerous to consider people inflexible at any age. as long as somebody wants to change, as long as we're alive we certainly can become more eagreable and conscientious as we age as well. i don't know donald wants to change. he may want to change his image. i think he likes who he is and people who like him like how he is. neil: you told people it is okay to get older. it is okay to change and okay to refocus and to experiment? >> more than that. that is information they weren't told. so you need to get positive information. neil: you also mentioned by name
but a lot of people you worked with, a lot of your clients. >> i mentioned client that have inspired me. a compilation of people i worked with. neil: hey -- >> because i make sure their identity and sometimes even their sex was changed so no one would know who they are. neil: i want to get into that lot more. the book is very good. your best age is now. we'll talk about it more on my fox news show later today. some fascinating stuff men could use. she doesn't address that, because she doesn't think we need the help, do we guys? >> you guys are perfect. neil: exactly. enough about me. back to the show about me after this. or wonder whether i should seek treatment. i am ready. the most common type of chronic hepatitis c. harvoni is proven to cure up to 99% of patients who've had no prior treatment. it's the one and only cure that's
