tv   The Intelligence Report With Trish Regan  FOX Business  March 13, 2018 2:00pm-3:00pm EDT

2:00 pm
two-prong. first the economic side of this. what does this mean for trade? then there is foreign policy, north korea talks, what does it mean for future? i bake -- break it down on "making money" 6:00 p.m. eastern time. here is trish. trish: thank you, charles. we're about to hear from outgoing secretary of state rex tillerson. that is where we'll be going live. that is the first comments since president trump's big announcement that rex tillerson is out and cia direct are it mike pompeo is in. as we await for president trump to arrive in california that is happening a short time from now. the president is there, prototype for his border wall. i'm trish regan. welcome to "the intelligence report." president trump parting wayses with rex tillerson today following several disagreements including the iran nuke deal and north korea. president says he needs someone who is on the same page as him.
2:01 pm
watch. >> mike pompeo, we have a very similar thought process. i think it is going to go real well. we're always on the same wavelength. that is what i need as a secretary of state. trish: as we await rex tillerson i want to bring in former secretary of state robert charles here. let me ask you this, was this the straw that broke the camel's back, in that the president made a decision to meet with kim jong-un on the fly? didn't consult rex tillerson, didn't consult any one at the state department, said, yeah, i will meet with him provided conditions are met? did that contribute to this? >> the president is president, and no doubt it did contribute. the president sees dangerous waters ahead and he want as seasoned pilot at state. that what pompeii crow will do
2:02 pm
for him. you have north korea. iran, that deal has to be a no-no-go middle of may, this president like any quarterback picking his own wide receivers making sure they're on the same wavelength he want someone instinctually with him. i will say, mike pompeo, i don't know him, i know his reputation. he is out of the box thinker, off the charts smart. number one as west point. harvard law school. was an attorney. a captain in the army. he is clearly a guy that will think creatively. he is not what rex tillerson was. rex tillerson is very steady company man. trish: that is funny. i'm telling my team that this morning. i wonder if that is part of that you think about what it takes to rise in an organization like exxon, he had to have been enormously political. he had to build a ton of consensus within the company. you contrast that with someone like the president who is an
2:03 pm
entrepreneur. now as a business reporter i've known both types, right? the ceo versus the entrepreneur, there is distinct difference between them. >> no question. trish: the entrepreneur, very guns blazing, does what they want or need, has a bit of a gut instinct for things whereas the ceo risen up in the ranks, is a company man or woman and knows how to get along with everyone and knows how to consult and build consensus. they're two kind of different styles. >> i think substantively they're different. the style reflects in many ways the way they solve problems. i think rex tillerson is an incrementalist. so in many ways it was easy to get captured by the state department. the last thing in the world they wanted is a high-level discussion resolving this issue without all of the flamboyance and early back and forth that goes with negotiating and creating pre-papers all this what you have with president
2:04 pm
trump is a bold decision-maker. what you have with pompeo is afy who fully understands bold decision. sometimes the openly bay you solve a problem is with a bold decisionmaker. trish: what do you think was really going on in terms of their personal relationship? why didn't they hit it off more? >> i think they probably see the world in different ways, completely differently. trish: what is the -- okay, go through with it. >> tillerson spent his entire life inside of exxon until now. so he climbed that ladder very methodically. you don't a lot of crosswind. you don't have to deal -- exceptional what he has done where he got but he didn't see other things. he didn't see around corp.ers where a head of the cia right now sees around corners. he is not as multifaceted as pompeo. pompeo knows the military. he knows the intelligence community. he is a ace lawyer. he worked in private sector as a lawyer at ace and connolly.
2:05 pm
he is sharp as a tack. if you're president of the united states you're sitting down with a guy who is communist dictator, who is -- you need to have your best people at your elbow. i'm not saying that rex tillerson wasn't good for the time. he was a steward for the first year. he provided a degree of stability. pompeo will provide stability in a much faster current. one that is different than takes it down the rapids. trish: how much does the cia background help him here? >> exceptionally. you want the long pole in the tent. you want to see the person who has seen all the briefs. this is not a surprise in any way. he briefs the president every day. he probably gets along with john kelly. probably gets along well with jim mattis. i feel confident that he is coming over. in my view it will wake some people up. it will shape and reshape the way the state department manages these issues, the way, russia,
2:06 pm
china, iran, i think you will secretive thinking here. trish: we need it. think about some of the reasons why donald trump was elected and americans wanted a disruptor in chief. they wanted some one who will do things differently, he has shown certainly, saying yes to kim jong-un. that is meeting with a different approach to anything we've seen oaf last several decades? north koreans are asking for this meeting. every sitting president made no until now. >> let's go a step beyond that this president, president trump has done more already with north korea, long before the meeting than any president has done in 30 years since ronald reagan got them to sign the non-proliferation treaty in 1985. why do i say that? he has them right now, stopped their missile launch muchs. he got them stopped the nuclear program. if they don't, there is no meeting. ronald reagan used to say something along the lines if you can't make them see the light, make them feel the heat. i think this president sees eye-to-eye looking at the world.
2:07 pm
pompeo does too. trish: for sure. i want to let the viewer know we're waiting for rex tillerson, the outgoing secretary of state. the press is gathered at the state department. as we wait i'm joined by robert charles. we're trying to figure out what motivated this. to robert, he needed someone, the president did, who really saw eye-to-eye on all the issues. rex tillerson who may have been wonderful over the first year really set the stage for more work to be done, ran perhaps the rick of being a little bit too much of a company man and not entirely in thinking with the president and in sync with the president. i get that, robert, i really do. you can see the contrast, by the way something people liked initially because the president was seen as someone who really was this go-getter and maybe rex tillerson could sort of dial it back a little bit and be a little bit more nuanced on
2:08 pm
thinks but given that we're facing a very distinct, very real threat from north korea, that dialed back personality may not be what the president wants by his side right now? >> yeah. i guess analogies always fail i used to play hockey. you know at a certain point one line gets tired or they sort of played themselves out, and then you do a change up, and in this case the president sort of changed on the fly. some of the best hockey teams in the world change on the fly very effectively. ronald reagan, eliminated or i should say fired al hague, less than 24 hours, same time announced george schultz. george should did a great job for the administration. sometimes you pick the player that is best for the moment. rex tillerson was steady hand. he got along well obviously with jim mattis, think pompeo is cut from clothe to mattis and kelly
2:09 pm
than tillerson ever was. trish: robert, stay with me right now. i want to bring in the conversation with us, florida congressman matt gaetz for his reaction. congressman, robert and i have been talking about differences between mike pompeo and rex tillerson. how would you articulate them? >> i would say this is time when a change could be helpful given the current status of our negotiations and discussions with north korea. rex tillerson did a phenomenal job setting the stage using diplomacy as counterbalance to incredible force we've built up in the asia specific region. we have flashpoint to resolve something, that loomed over the korean peninsula, american people, and really global peace for a generation. i think fresh eyes coming in at this point, someone not wedded necessarily to set the table for this negotiation will serve president trump well and one thing we can say about president
2:10 pm
trump, he has very good instincts when it comes to negotiating and negotiations, who to have at the table. i certainly trust given mr. pompeo's background, in the cia, the house and the private sector he will be a highly capable deputy of the president during these negotiations and i'm very hopeful we could have outcome of kinetic conflict on korean peninsula. we would not be here were it not for rex tillerson. trish: he is very accomplished as well as rex tillerson. representative gaetz were you surprised by this announcement this morning? >> not really. a few folks at foggy bottom were expecting a rexit at some point. with the prinicple project the secretary of state is tasked with, which is the nuclear standoff we're facing. trish: robert, go ahead. >> i agree with the congressman. back it up a step, this is high-risk, high reward president.
2:11 pm
he is very met nod call when he sets table. with the tax cut, and election victory, high-risk and high reward when you do it the right. he has opportunity to do it right with north korea. if he does it right they will remember him in the same breath as ronald reagan. trish: let's listen in right now to rex tillerson. >> i received a call from president of the united states a little after noontime on air force one and spoken to white house chief of staff kelly, to insure we have clarity as to days ahead. what is most important to insure an orderly and smooth transition during a time that the country continues to face significant policy and national security challenges. as such, effective at the end of the day, i'm delegating all responsibilities of the office of secretary to deputy secretary of state sullivan.
2:12 pm
my commission as secretary of state will terminate midnight march 31st. between now and then i will address a few of the administrative matters related to my departure, and move to a smooth, orderly transition to designate secretary of state mike pompeo. i'm encouraging my policy planning team and undersecretaries, assistant secretaries, those confirmed, as well as those in acting positions to remain in their post and continue our mission at the state department and working with the inneragency process. i will be meeting members of my front office team, policy planning later today, to thank them for our service? they have been extraordinarily dedicated to our mission which includes promoting values that i have view being very important. for safety and security of our state department personnel,
2:13 pm
accountability, which means treating each other with honesty and integrity, and respect for one another. most recently in particular to address challenges of sexual harrassment within the department. i want to speak now to my state department colleagues and our inneragency colleagues and partners at dod and the joint chief of staffs most particularly. to my foreign service officers and civil service colleagues we ought took the same oath of office. whether you're a career employee or political appointee we're all bound by the common commitment to support and defend the constitution, to bear truth faith and allegiance to the same, and to faithfully discharge the duties of our office. as a state department we're bound together by that oath. we remain steadfast here in washington and at posts across the world.
2:14 pm
many of whom are in danger situations without their families. the world needs selfless leaders like these, ready to work with long-standing allays, new emerging partners and allyies though now many are struggling as democracies, and in some cases are dealing with human tragedy, crisis of natural disasters, literally crawling themselves out of those circumstances. these are experiences that no lecture hall in a academic environment or a think tank can teach you. only by people going to the front lines to serve can they develop this kind of talent. to the men and women in uniform i'm told for the first time in most people's memory that the department of state and department of defense have a close working relationship where we all agree the u.s. leadership starts with diplomacy.
2:15 pm
the men and women in uniform at the department of defense under leadership of secretary mattis and general dunford protect us as americans and our way of life daily at home and abroad. as an all-volunteer military, they do it for love of country, they do it for you, and they do it for me, for no other reason, as americans we're all eternally grateful to each of them. we honor their sacrifices. the rewarding part of having leadership and partnerships in place is that you can actually get some things done. and i want to give recognition to the state department, and our partners for a few of their accomplishments under this administration. first working with allies we exceeded the expectations of almost everyone with the dprk maximum pressure campaign.
2:16 pm
to bring partners and allies on board in every country around the world. with every embassy and mission raising this to the highest levels and every meeting i have had throughout the year, this has been on the agenda to discuss. the adoption of the south asia strategy with the conditions of base military plan is a tool to compel the taliban to reconciliation and peace talks with the afghan government. finally equipped our military planners with a strategy which they can execute as opposed to a succession of 16 one-year strategies. this clear military commitment attracted the support of allies
2:17 pm
broadly and equipped our diplomats with a whole new level of certainty around how to prepare for the peace talks and achieve the final objectives. in other areas while progress has been made much work remains. in syria we did aimportant cease-fires and stabilizations which we know saved thousands of lives. there is more to be done in syria, particularly with respect to achieving the peace as well as stablizing iraq and seeing a healthy government installed, and more broadly in the entire global campaign to defeat isis. nothing is possible without allies and partners though. much work remains to establish a clear view of the nature of our future relationship with china. how shall we deal with one another over the next 50 years, and insure a period of prosperity for all of our peoples, free of conflict, between two very powerful
2:18 pm
nations. and much work remains to respond to the troubling behavior and actions on the part of the russian government. russia must assess camely as to how its actions are in the best interests of the russian people and of the world more broadly. continuing on their current trajectory is likely to lead to greater isolation on their part. a situation which is not in anyone's interests. so to my colleagues in the state department and inneragency much remains to be done to achieve our mission on behalf of the american people with allies and with partners. i close by thanking all for the privilege of serving beside you for the last 14 months. importantly to the 300 plus million americans thank you, for your deinvestigation to a free and -- devotion to a free and open society, to acts of kindness towards one another.
2:19 pm
to honesty, quiet hard work you do every day to support this government with your tax dollars. all of us we know want to leave this place as a better place for the next generation. i will now return to private life as a private citizen, as a proud american, proud of the opportunity i have had to serve my country. god bless all of you, god bless the american people, god bless america. [shutting questions] -- shouting questions. trish: rex tillerson taking no questions from the members of the media. this is the first comments he has made since being ousted as secretary of state. he said he got a phone call from the president shortly after noon, when the president was aboard air force one. he spoke with the chief of staff kelly about the importance of a seamless transition here. he did say he will leave his job on march 31st to prepare of
2:20 pm
course for the new, the new secretary of state, mike pompeo, to take over then. he will keep his staff around him for continuity. he stressed the importance of how much allegiance all of these people have to their country. joining me right now with reaction, florida congressman matt gaetz, along with robert charles. congressman gaetz, your sense of rex tillerson, how he did there, what the message was, how difficult as well this may have even been for him? >> sure. he reminded us a little bit what the world was like when he was first nominated by the president to secretary of state. isis was on the march. now they're on the run. china wasn't doing anything to help north korea. now they're part of our maximum pressure campaign. north korea went from unwillingness to have discussion about nuclear denuclearization, and it is accomplishment for little over a year.
2:21 pm
i'm excited about where mike pompeo can take the baton and advance the america first agenda. rex tillerson, consummate businessman still wanting to make sure we have smooth transition and effective use of the state department to accomplish america's objectiontives. trish: robert charles, he seemed he was a little out of breath. i don't know if he was running to the podium but he was a little stressed and nervous. but certainly in the beginning of it he was struggling to get enough air at first? >> the state department is a big place with a lot of staircases. maybe he was coming there up a staircase. i think rex tillerson is a thoughtful, far-sighted patriot. you noticed what he did. he talked about community of operations, private service. he made a hat tip, which is very important to the defense department, making it clear both the state department personnel, foreign service officers and others and those who serve in the pentagon serve on the same
2:22 pm
wave length. they're serving america. so in the grand scheme of things he did what i would expect him to do. he was gracious, he was thoughtful. he may have had the speech in drawer, pulled it out, wasn't exactly ready yet. he did a great job, saluted smartly for his president. anybody who serves in public as, when you're serving at the federal level by appointment you have to do anything that is required of you in service of the constitution and if the president says you know what, i'm ready to turn the page now. i would like mike pompeo come to lead the next charge, you salute smartly, and say thank you, sir. that is exactly what he did. it is a lot of dignity there. it might have hit him as a surprise, but in the end it is not unexpected. trish: but it has been talked about at length, congressman gaetz. we heard over and over again all these rumors about his departure. so, i don't know. i mean he had to have heard them
2:23 pm
too. he was asked directly about them. so, do you think he was blind-sided in any way? is this simply, it is taking the natural course and perhaps the president needed to make sure he had a good succession plan in place before actually parting ways with tillerson? >> trish if we were not at the moment in time where the president was preparing for a sit-down leader with the president of the north korea i think youmake the argument it was out blue and but this is sort of a natural place to change the leadership team because we're going into a new phase of our engagement with north korea, it would seem appropriate to bring in a new team to manage the new phase with a different set of core competencies that are required. it is important to note that rex tillerson was outsider when he was first picked. >> i will jump in, because donald trump is arriving, president of the united states, on air force one arriving in san diego. i'm still here with congressman gaetz and robert charles. you will recall the reason he is
2:24 pm
in san diego is to look for types for the border wall that he wants built and platform for his campaign and certainly continues to do so. resonating with his base. there are protests on both sides in californias as there always is! in california they love to protest. there are many of course that don't believe this wall is what the country needs and many believe it is exactly what we need. a camp that i know you're in congressman gaetz. >> absolutely and we're likely to take a vote by the end of the week in congress to fund the government for the next two years and a major part of that funding will be funding for the wall. so as a construction guy the president wants to to out and see the quality of the product that we'll be able to go and resource. i think it is important also to recognize we have amazing technologies that will assist in the building of the physical structure to insure we have a secure border. just yesterday i was receiving testimony about the extent which radical islamic extremists
2:25 pm
understand and leverage the fact that we have porous border to try to infiltrate our country. so i think again this is the president fulfilling a campaign promise, putting the interests of the american people first. insuring that if we spend the money, we have an effective and fishen out come so we don't have porous borders going forward. trish: he is working at lightning speed getting back to the entrepreneur style that he has. thank you so much. good to have you both here today. robert, charles, thank you very interesting, spot-on analysis of the change in secretary of state. our thanks to congressman gaetz. we'll have a whole lot more intel after this. a market is down 50 points. we'll see how it shakes out. we've been in positive and negative territory today. a little bit more volatility in these markets right now. i will see you here in two. itie. fidelity.

2:29 pm
trish: stocks turning lower right now on news that rex tillerson is out as secretary of state. mike pompeo is in.
2:30 pm
it is all coming amid the release of new inflation data which shows only modest rise in consumer prices. this is good news. it is very good news for investors freaking out about rising inflation and impact on the fed's interest rate policy. in other words, you know, inflation is just kind of creeping along. it is not going at some record pace so that's good news. nonetheless we have market off 60 points. joining me garth men letter and publisher, dennis gartman. dennis, this is what we want, right, a little inflation! >> inflation barely above 2% is good for the bond market. bonds are a little stronger today. it should have been good for the dollar, all of sudden the news with mr. tillerson forced out of the office, mr. pompeo pushed into office created a little confusion. a little inflation beats a modest amount of deflation.
2:31 pm
thankfully we're getting a bit of inflation at this point. >> said, it created a little confusion. i get annoyed with investors sometimes that they overreact. they're not really overreacting with the market down 64 points, not entirely a big deal but nonetheless, it feels, dennis, they react so strongly to things. the tariffs were a great example. they reacted in very negative way initially. it took time for them to come to terms to say this isn't the end of the world. why are we seeing such violent moves? >> i am one of those people who tend to react a little bit because i live in the world of news every moment. the tariffs terrified me, i must admit. trish: you weren't watching intel then? you should have been watching intel and we would have cautioned you to be not overly worried. your thoughts. >> i'm antagonistic to tariffs to begin with. the market is not only one that
2:32 pm
is putting tariffs into effect. europe has a great deal of tariffs in effect a long time. the concern that we would slide down a slippery slope. we haven't yet. it is still early. we're still seeing strength in the bond market. that is impressive. the fact we roared last friday after non-farm payroll numbers which was impressive number. trish: terrific. >> impressive number to say the least. but we to the a good number north of us in canada which tells us all of north america is doing very well, thank you very much. trish: i like the sound of that i think you're right people didn't quite understand how bad some of these deals were. we have the opportunity to use economic leverage, instead of using military leverage or no leverage at all to fix them. i think that is good news. >> well -- trish: i'm not worried about a little increase in steel and aluminum. you know what, dennis, if we can
2:33 pm
recontribute these agreements around the world, guess what, we'll sell more products around the world and that will be actual free trade. >> we'll see what happens. nafta is 20 something years old. it can be renegotiated. trish: it has got to be. this is what he ran on. >> but let's be, be concerned that he talked about tossing it overboard. probably that was just negotiation point. it can be renegotiated. let's see what comes out of the the renegotiation process. trish: dennis gartman, that very much. >> good to see you, trish. trish: it's a tight race in trump country as voters head to the ballot right now in pennsylvania. is this a preview of midterm elections? we have intel.. for you. i will see you here. how did edward jones come to manage a trillion dollars in assets under care?
2:34 pm
jay. sarah. so i have a few thoughts on that early retirement... by focusing our mind on whatever's on yours. about type 2 diabetes.with some surprising facts so you have type 2 diabetes, right? yeah. yes i do. okay so you diet, you exercise, you manage your a1c? that's the plan. what about your heart? what do you mean my heart? the truth is, type 2 diabetes can make you twice as likely to die from a cardiovascular event, like a heart attack or stroke. and with heart disease, your risk is even higher. but wait, there's good news for adults who have type 2 diabetes and heart disease. jardiance is the only type 2 diabetes pill with a lifesaving cardiovascular benefit. jardiance is proven to both significantly reduce the chance of dying from a cardiovascular event in adults who have type 2 diabetes and heart disease alower your a1c. jardiance can cause serious side effects including dehydration. this may cause you to feel dizzy, faint, or lightheaded, or weak upon standing. ketoacidosis is a serious side effect that may be fatal. symptoms include nausea, vomiting, stomach pain,
2:35 pm
tiredness, and trouble breathing. stop taking jardiance and call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of ketoacidosis or an allergic reaction. symptoms of an allergic reaction include rash, swelling, and difficulty breathing or swallowing. do not take jardiance if you are on dialysis or have severe kidney problems. other side effects are sudden kidney problems, genital yeast infections, increased bad cholesterol, and urinary tract infections, which may be serious. taking jardiance with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. so-you still just thinking about your a1c? well no, i'm also thinking about my heart. now it's your turn to ask the serious questions. ask your doctor about jardiance. and get to the heart of what matters.

trish: democrat conor lamb voting in pennsylvania's special election for the 18th congressional district, telling reporters he doesn't feel this election is referendum on trump, as president tweeted his support
2:38 pm
for his opponent, rick saccone, quoting the economy is raging at an all-time high. set to get better. jobs and wages up. vote for rick saccone, keep it going. the president won the pittsburgh area district pretty handily in 2016 but today's race is considered a toss-up. connell mcshane is live in pennsylvania with the latest. hey, connell. reporter: hey, trish. this young democrat, conor lamb made it so close to expect that a modern-day republican would win. he has done that running away from the democratic party and running away from the nancy pelosi. he supports president's tariffs on and giving rick saccone all he can hand he, in the district that the democrats hold a edge in registration. in recent years, republicans usually win. so when the republican saccone showed up at this location a
2:39 pm
little earlier today to vote, all of us reporter types asked him, you know why is it so close this time? here is what he said. >> why do you think it is so close today? >> it is open seat. i'm a political scientist. democrats are trying their best to throw everything they can at this race. hasn't been a open seat for a long time. they see they might have opportunity so they do everything they can to get there. reporter: yep, do everything they can. in fairness republicans are doing a lot as well. a lot of outside money from both sides come into the race. the question will the republican money be enough to save saccone. by numbers should be. by all accounts he should win this race, it is trump country. the president is still popular in this part of pennsylvania. the district went for him by 20 points last time around. trish, best we can tell, the race may come down to many rank-and-file union members. many are registered to vote as democrats but recent years have
2:40 pm
gone republican, went strong with president. if you speak to folks in the lamb campaign as we have last several days, they are confident they will bring up enough of those voters to bring them back to the democratic side to win this race. we'll see. it will be very close. polls close tonight at 7:00. trish: connell, thank you. we have marc lotter, former press secretary for vice president pence and democratic strategist robin biro. robin i will start with you, what is happening in this country, party doesn't matter. it doesn't matter people want to vote for the person, regardless of party they think will help them the most in terms of their own economic prosperity. for those voters in the pitts burke area, that was president trump. but i don't know if it is rick saccone for them. i don't know if rick saccone has the can charisma, the personalio
2:41 pm
make those same people historically democrats feel protected. how fascinating that you have a democrat doing what exactly every democrat should be doing, distancing himself from nancy pelosi and going back to his working class roots there with those voters that could send hill to washington. how is this going to play out? >> oh, i hope, trish, that this is a road map for how democrats in the future wage their elections because he is hitting it right straight to the heart. he is talking to them about local issues, that they really care about. he is ditching this whole resistance movement. he is not disparaging the president. he is giving them a message they can understand what he is doing about the gerrymandering, about their taxes, issues that matter to them. he distanced himself from nancy pelosi which is a brilliant move, so he won't be painted as a pelosi democrat. look at this guy.
2:42 pm
33-year-old ivy league law student, former federal prosecutor. a marine veteran, fellow brother in arms. to me i'm fired up about this one. trish: he could be a problem for the republicans. i mean candidates that are cut from that mold, because you know marc lotter, a lot of republicans right now in washington, d.c., that aren't getting on the bandwagon here. they're not with the program. they're fighting about tariffs. they're fighting the president and sort of reluctantly getting dragged along. and you know for those members of the, whatever party that come out and say, look we need to prioritize americans, we need to prioritize american jobs, i think they will come out in 2018 so how do they come aboard on the president's basic message. >> look in 2018 democratic senators claim to be moderate,
2:43 pm
but when it comes to be a yes or no vote, they're voting against the president with chuck schumer or in the house with nancy pelosi. regardless what they say, they are voting a different way. that is something that people voting in pennsylvania today, it is easy to say one thing back at home. but what will we do when they get here in washington? is he going to join with nancy pelosi to raise your tax, cut your jobs, cut your paychecks? those are things that you know rick saccone actually he supports the president. trish: i hear you. this is the problem i think voters have, they can't trust republican candidates are really going to back the president's policies, because you see how many of them don't. that is why i'm saying, i don't know if party matters in this day and age, in the day and age of a candidate and now president donald trump. robin? >> i would assert, trish, both parties right now are doing their candidates a disservice. the dnc, the candidates that are
2:44 pm
winning these special elections are not the ones cobbled by the dnc. i believe when the gop is dumping all of this money in and putting donald trump out there, it is not helping the candidates. i think it is doing more harm than good. these candidates need to take the message to the districts what they themselves can do. it is all about the messaging. it has to be the messaging. i think they see over -- trish: i will give democrats a little bit of advise here. next time you get the opportunity to vote for tax cuts, do it, and don't call it crumbs. marc, robin. thank you very much. new video showing treasury secretary steve mnuchin getting heckled at a ucla speech. what happened to respect? isn't that a song, r-e-s-pe-c-t? apparently they don't have it

that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should. trish: your husband, your boss, your son? in other words, hillary clinton, somehow now thinks that women can't think independently? she wonders why women didn't like her when she is out there trying to blame women? while in india, for her losing the race? this is just insulting. utterly, postively insulting. joining me right now, former congresswoman nan hayworth. come on. >> i heard -- trish: i heard that. first of all my husband and i often vote differently. i think that is true of most all women i know. for letter to say something like that that, for you to vote for your husband and your son,
2:50 pm
because you're a woman, no wonder she polled so poorly with women? >> only thing she is right about there is female responsibility for their loss. if she wants to see who is responsible, look in the mirror. what she says, trish, it is antithetical to being american. the whole idea of being american, we can make our own choices. we are not defined by our chromosomes, by our physical appearance. by our zip code, and yet hillary clinton persists in that frame of mind. she is woman. a victim. trish: eternal victim. she is selfish about being a victim as well. because it is not, women in general. it is women hurt her, so she is blaming them and blaming their husbands and blaming their sons. >> absolutely. trish: think of it, we are the passive vix testimony of our
2:51 pm
fate -- victims of our fate. we were supposed to be passive because we vote according to our identity. hillary clinton had nothing to do with her loss. it was all the external factors. she proved her disqualification while she was running. she is proving it again now. the wisdom of the american electorate. trish: telling you -- you know, look. really good consultants, someone to say, listen, lady, this is not going to play with the american women. this american women do not like you, because you don't like american women. isn't that what is effectively showing. >> her message is disempowering, instead of saying you can think and make up your own mind. let me present you with the best arguments. no it is, should have voted for the woman. what is wrong with you. trish: it is always someone else. nan, i want to get your reaction to a video last month, just
2:52 pm
surfacing right now. treasury secretary steve mnuchin, steve mnuchin getting heckled badly while in q&a session while on the economy in ucla. this video, it shows audience members hissing at mnuchin. >> you guys get to hiss at me. i don't get to hiss at you. i administer all the sanctions out of treasury department. so, hopefully, you will hiss about sanctions? can we get a little feedback, why you don't like opportunity zones? >> [bleep] >> okay. [booing] [applause] >> why are you here then? maybe you want to leave if i have got nothing to say. you should leave. >> you're a pig!. you should be shamed of yourself! we refuse to accept his america. trump must go! trish: what's happened to respect in this nation?
2:53 pm
granted ucla, but still, my goodness, no decorum whatsoever, nan. >> you know, trish, approprowhat we're talking about. it is further evidence i think of the desire of the left to herd us all as sheep. we have, you know, we're supposed to march in lockstep against these figures whom we identify as people, we won't even listen to, because steve mnuchin, why, because he is in the trump administration. he represents an administration, instead of sitting back as thoughtful listeners the way i did in college, i didn't agree with everything what my instructor said this, is almost 40 years ago, we were told, listen, think. offer your thoughts in a courteous way and have an exchange. that is no longer the case as you know, trish. now it is suppressed thought we don't like.
2:54 pm
fight speakers who we disagree with. trish: at one point they were heckling him about sanctions. what do you mean, you don't like sanctions? >> they don't know what they are, trish. i bet they don't know what they are. what i love is, if any of these children ever actually had to spend time in or live in north korea, they would be desperate to return it to this country. they have been told that, i guess that they can just take that for granted and we have to emphasize, whatever failings or perceived on the part of this country historically, some of which yes we actively need to address, even further. but they are taught that this country is somehow the sum of its failings, not sum of its virtues. trish: nan hayworth, thank you very much. i still can't get over hillary clinton trying to define women. >> that is that passive, just follow like sheep. oh, that is the woman. got to vote for her. trish: nan, thank you, we'll be right back.

2:59 pm
rex tillerson gave a speech, i thought he went out as a class act. trish: indeed. >> he didn't answer questions, he knew they were going to trash it and take it to the gutter. that was great. the market drifted down during all that speech, and trying to digest this. not going to make much of it. trish: i don't think it's much either, we have an hour to go. who knows, right? >> yeah, we could turn this around, yields are down a little bit. trish: i know that troubles you a little bit. >> a little bit. like to see them march higher at a measured pace. a goldilocks number on friday and the buying never stopped and the last couple of days milling around. trish: yeah, well, you know, that's what the bond market is doing too, right? >> stocks don't go up 300 points every day of the week, unfortunately. i wish i could make that happen. trish: david, good to see you. what a news day, between rex tillerson, the vote in pennsylvania, my goodness, one thing after another along with

the president in san diego looking at prototypes for his long-promised wall. liz claman, i'm sending it your way with a market down about 100 points, sure hoping you can get it to recover. what are the odds of that? liz: a live picture of marine one, landed the brown min pal airport. 1.5 miles north of the border of mexico. there you see president donald trump exiting marine one, he will head to a caravan, and that caravan will make the way to otay mesa, right on the border with mexico there. he is set to view the eight border wall prototypes in this hour, in about 19 minutes, but it is the shocking dismissal by twitter of secretary of state rex tillerson that has tongues
