and nancy pelosi are trying to take back a line from president trump. they're claiming they're the guys going to drain the swamp in washington. but breaking details from government watch dogs how bad the swamp really is and how it grew on the democrats' watch. you're not going to believe it. and the credibility of the russia probe on the line. we'll bring you the latest on the big meeting thursday on alleged trump campaign spying. gop congressional investigators, the d.o.j., the fbi and more. republicans now demand a second special counsel. democrats fighting back saying this is all about politics. they're saying the trump-russia probe is real. we've got details showing otherwise, possibly. politics, money, we cover the facts behind tomorrow's headlines. i'm elizabeth macdonald. "the evening edit" starts right now.
. liz: let's get to your money first. the dow dropping nearly 200 points, it's sticking tight in that trading range. that is normal for a midterm election-year historycally. after president trump said he is not happy with the china trade talkshat'soing on with north korea summit. we're going to get to tt in just a second. president trump is meeting with south korean president moon jae-in to plot a strategy going forward for that historic summit with north korea. should take place in singapore. south korea says 99.9% chance it will happen. let's get on edward lawrence in d.c. live with the details. edward? reporter: liz, i can tell you for the very first time the president says that maybe the summit with north korea won't happen on june 12th. however, the state department says they are working forward towards that date and only that date. president trump saying he will personally guarantee the safety of north korean leader kim jong-un at that meeting.
president going onto say he would recognize kim jong-un as the one to lead the north korean people into the future. >> i would say that we are looking certainly right now at two koreas, two successful koreas. you have a very, very successful north korea, and a very successful and you already do, south korea. reporter: all of that is predicated on denuclearization and also the north korean leader actually sitting down at the table in singapore. >> i do have a real sense that he would -- he would find american investment, american technology, know-how of real value to his people. if we get this right and get the denuclearization right that america would be quite capable of delivering them with lots of things that would make life better for the north korean people. reporter: president trump reaffirming that the outcome of the summit would be a very good
thing for north korea, liz? >> great to see you, edward, thanks for coming on. bring in former special ops intelligence for the u.s. army. good to see you, brett. >> how are you, liz? liz: the president talking in real time telling you what's going on behind the scenes with this north korea summit. what do you think? he's saying it may get delayed. south korea saying it's optimistic it's going to happen. what was your take on this? >> i think time will tell at the june 12th meeting actually happens. what was interesting to me is how we're now a part of this negotiation process and seeing "the art of the deal" from the president. he was cool, calm and collected, may be sweating it behind the scenes, what was interesting is he was willing to walk away if it happens or it doesn't. in the end, they'll be able to figure it out. and one of the other things he said which i think is very key is that he would guarantee the
safety of kim jong-un and the regime if a deal actually took place. that's pretty clever, when i think about it, because you're seeing this deal-making process and seeing why the president is such a great negotiator. when you take away all the threats, all of the rhetoric from north korea. in the end what they want is regime preservation. right? with intelligence circles, we've been very clear, understanding which phases that has been in. it's been using the nuclear program to obtain regime preservation and switch to the next phase which is economic modernization. liz: it's interesting. we may not have ever in the history of this country see deal making in real time with such transparency. i want your reaction to this. the president indicating china's xi jinping may have personally pressured kim jong-un to be stronger, take a stronger chance, take a chance. >> i will say i'm a little
disappointed because when kim jong-un had the meeting with president xi, the second meeting, the first meeting we knew, the second meeting, i think there was a little change in attitude from kim jong-un. i don't like that. i don't like that. i think things changed during that meeting, i can't say i'm happy about it. liz: that's candid, he's speaking in all candor. could china be working against us? >> i have no doubt they are. it has always been a negotiation, just as much as a negotiation with china as north korea. interesting start of the talks took place, the first location that kim jong-un went was over to china and clearly pulling the strings from behind the scenes, that was definitely a message from the president to china to let them know that we can see them pulling the strings behind the scenes and hope that in the end everything comes together and we would hope that they went into play a negative role because this is not just a deal for the
american people, not a deal for the south koreans, it's a deal for the entire world. liz: to president trump, to your point, trying to get kim jong-un to the table. watch? >> i will guarantee his safety. yes. we will guarantee his safety and talked about that from the beginning. he will be sea. he'll be happy. his country will be rich. liz: okay, brett, this is a serious situation. despite how the media is pretty cavalier in joke around about how this would be a big failure for the president. north korea is on a knife edge, it's a collapsed state with nuclear weapons, it's an economic crisis story. gdp is less than honduras and the size of togo. >> yeah, exactly. the president in this case has to convince kim jong-un if they let go of naeps they will still be able to preserve the regime. that's the key here. they've been using this as leverage for the next phase of economic modernization, he's
not going to give it up for sanctions being taken away, there's going to be have be economic bonus to all this and the president is going to have to fight hard to let kim jong-un know he's not going to go down the same road as the other leaders went through like qaddafi and saddam hussein. that's a pretty big deal. there's a lot at stake here, no doubt about it. liz: to your point, look at this, a powerful democrat, former president jimmy carter now saying president trump could get the nobel peace prize if he does get the deal. what do you think about that? >> fantastic. i've never seen anything like this when it comes to negotiations. this is a historic moment. no sitting president has met th t nor korean leader. if he gets the deal, it's the deal of the century and the negotiation of the president's life. he's the right man for the job and something he can't fail at. liz: take the viewer to north korea right now. foreign reporters are showing up in north korea to watch north korea blow up one of its
biggest nuclear sites as early as tomorrow. supposed to happen this week. brett, this seems like a good sign for the summit, but no international nuclear inspectors are going, just this small group of international journalists. we won't be able to know if north korea is being sincere or if they're going to build a brand-new nuclear site down the road. revive it later, right? >> good point. with north korea you have to plan best and assume the worst. something similar happened in 2008, journalists invited by the north korean regime to witness the cooling tower that was going to be destroyed essentially by pyongyang and the power was being used for extracting plutonium to weaponize their systems over there, and then what the audience didn't know is that even though we saw the media, the explosion, the tower, which is supposed to signal the end of the nuclear program, they had a separate facility that
was being built the entire time and figured out a way to make the cooling process more efficient. so we have to look at history a bit here, but that's not to say we shouldn't go full speed ahead, but it's really on the north koreans at this point to show us why they're not deceiving us this time. liz: brett, great to you have on. >> thank you. liz: come back soon. co-founder and ceo mark zuckerberg is on that apology tour in europe. appearing before the european parliament falling on the sword again. he's trying to prevent the eu from slamming facebook with gigantic fines if it does not give users more privacy controls over personal information data. deirdre bolton has the latest. >> the stakes are high, the european lawmakers are going to go after facebook in a very different way, a more aggressive way than u.s. lawmakers. he spoke at length about the
reasons why, but sum total, europe has the advantages of the big techs, complaints about data integrity. they don't get to brag in the same way that companies were created there. investors have a difficult time buying shares from exchanges. they don't get all the job growth. none of the bragging rights, they have a little more incentive to be tougher on the companies. you alluded to the potential fines that could go against facebook or tech company and europe's new rules are gdrp, general data protection regulation go into effect friday. facebook or any tech company that runs afoul of these new laws, the eu has a right to impose a fine of 4% of annual revenue. so if you are using the math, that would be $1.6 billion penalty per year. and this would apply, liz, even though facebook is obviously
based in the united states. the fact is they have users in europe, it qualifies, they have to fall in line with the rules if they want to have useers from europe. a part of facebook's apology tour, the european version, here is the man himself, founder and ceo mark zuckerberg in opening statement in brussels today. check it out. >> we didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility. and that was a mistake. and i'm sorry for it. it's going to take time to work through all the changes that we need to make here, but i'm committed to getting this right and to make the significant investments that are necessary to keep people safe. reporter: liz, zuckerberg stuck close to the talk points in front of congress in april, and european lawmakers fiery on the way out saying at least one member of parliament, i asked you five yes or no questions. you did not answer any one of them. let's say there's more to come. back to you. >> they've been apologizing. he's been apologizing the same
apologies for the last ten years. >> we'll see what happens. liz: thanks for being on the story. appreciate it. let's get to your money, stocks falling today. dow giving back more than half of yesterday's gains. let's get to nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock exchange for the latest. nicole? reporter: while financials held onto gains, rest of the market averages couldn't do the same. the dow jones industrial average finished down almost 180 point. the s&p and the nasdaq came under pressure. i mentioned names such as jpmorgan and goldman sachs were winners, boeing, caterpillar, 3m among the laggards on the dow jones industrial average along with industrials. we saw movers such as micron, that was a gainer on the major averages. sony had a deal 2.3 billion for emi and the nyse gets first female leader, stacy
cunningham, chief operating officer is the current title and she'll be moving to the top spot. back to you. liz: great to see you, nicole. china trade talks in the works. some say president trump is trying to make china great again why. they are flat-out wrong? look at this, democrats chuck schumer and nancy pelosi desperate to win back control of congress. how are they going to do it? stealing a line from president trump saying they're the guys that are going to drain the swamp. why they are the ones who are wrong. that's coming up. >> the swamp has never been more foul and more feted than under this president. >> instead of delivering his promise to drain the swamp, president trump has become the swamp. it's easy to think that all money managers are pretty much the same.
but while some push high commission investment products, fisher investments avoids them. some advisers have hidden and layered fees. fisher investments never does. and while some advisers are happy to earn commissions from you whether you do well or not, fisher investments fees are structured so we do better when you do better. maybe that's why most of our clients come from other money managers. fisher investments. clearly better money management.
. liz: to the president, trying to get u.s. job growth back home with trade deals with china. he is being attacked on this front. he's being accused of helping to save chinese phone giant zte. he said being attacked for quote making china great again. it is any tt does affect our national security. this is classic trump deal-making. zte is the fourth biggest smartphone supplier in the world but if hit with u.s. sanctions it would bankrupt the company. zte has major contracts with u.s. companies like intel and qualcomm, that could affect u.s. jobs. republican florida senator marco rubio who has been against the zte deal tweeting today --
and now this, more than a quarter of u.s. senators have signed a letter urging the white house to protect national security interests in this part of the u.s.-china trade deals. let's bring in the author of the coming collapse of china. he is gordon chang, what's your reaction. good to see you, by the way. >> good to see you, liz. zte is complicated. zte does buy qualcomm and intel chips and uses the google android system. if you are qualcomm, you've got to be a little concerned because zte along with huawei are trying to dominate 5g, that is important, that's critical for qualcomm's future. considerations on both sides of this. this shows you how complicated things get. liz: good point because you want to see whether or not the president is fighting for what the u.s. needs are. here's what the two sides have reportedly agreed on this broad outline, save zte, u.s. companies could do business
with zte, zte would make management changes and possibly pay significant fines. is that strong enough? >> probably not. got toemember that it was wilbur ross, president trump's n commerce secretary who imposed that seven-year ban which is essentially a death sentence. zte did pretty bad things, it lied to get the plea deal that it arrived at last year. it lied after the plea deal, and, of course, reneged on the plea deal by not implementing the provisions, something serious has got to be done. probably a lot more than $300 million fine, we need to show huawei which did some of the same things iran and north korea did, that is a national security issue. liz: we know that both sides want a win-win. they want to save face and looking victorious and we've got the "new york times" negative spin on trump's china deal-making. ipfighting, thwarting victory on china trade, threats may not
be working on china. i don't know if these headlines affect the inside the beltway deal-making but what's the win-win deal here for the u.s.? >> this is pretty much going to be lop side because remember the chinese have been stealing hundreds of billions of dollars of u.s. intellectual property each year, somewhere between 225 to $600 billion. we need to impose the section 301 tariffs. what the "new york times" is referring to the split between treasury secretary mnuchin driving the talks and people like bob lighthizer, the u.s. trade representative and peter navarro who took a much tougher view on china. liz: i don't know if this is reported, i've looked for, it there are two deals we're talking about. china trade and north korea, right? >> right. >> and this gets complicated because you had the president today expressing disappointment with xi jinping of china. remember kim jong-un, the north
korean leader made a second consecutive trip to china and changed for the worse. president trump is saying what everyone knows is the chinese have put kim up to this and as well. the chinese sanctions busting over the last couple of months has gotten open and blatant and serious. liz: so the chinese are playing hardball right now. >> president trump needed to call the chinese out and needed to do it in stronger terms but at least he's starting along that road. we're going into a critical period up to june 12th in singapore where the summit is going to take place, we cannot allow china to do this stuff. liz: i don't think anyone would be here at this place in time with trump and north korea. >> more important is the sanctions. the u.s. and u.n. sanctions that have really crimped a lot of money, and that's important for us to continue to do. not only against the north koreans but may have to do that against the russians and the chinese. so this gets to be big.
liz: he's the man in the arena. good to see you, gordon. loved having you on again. great stuff. the obamas are headed to hollywood, they signed a multiyear netflix deal. we are going to have fun with the story about the shows that are going deliver for you to binge watch. and democrats stealing a line from president trump. they're the guys going drain the swamp, saying that in order to win control of the house in the midterms. we're going to bring you the back story of that swamp. it's coming up. i got scar tissue there. same thing with any dent or dings on this truck. they all got a story about what happened to 'em. i could feel the barb wire was just digging into the paint. two bulls were fighting, hit the truck. another ding, another scratch, another chapter in the story. chevy silverado. the most dependable, longest-lasting, full-size pickups on the road. it's the chevy memorial day sales event! get a total value of over $10,000 on this silverado all star when you finance with gm financial.
in two decades. 66% of americans saying, hey, the wait. >> you know, i don't know any private sector company that let's full time. huge numbers of workers do full time union work; right? >> look, this is an issue of the collective bargaining agreement. liz: no, but it's not good; right? >> it's not driven by policy. liz: do you think it's a good thing. >> well, it's baked in. liz: i know i'm not asking you that. do you think it's moral to do full time government work, union work, rather. >> i think it depends on how it's structured. we're conflating things that don't need to be conflated. liz: why is that being conflated. >> because they're explicitly a union office, for example, and it's explicit in their contract. liz: well, maybe we shouldn't be signing those contracts. $175million. really? >> well, then somebody needs
toking to the table and be a better negotiator. liz: and they get federal pension off of that too. let's get to this story. the obama's go to hollywood striking a deal with netflix former obama and first lady michelle obama sign a multiyear agreement with the streaming giant. they're going to produce films and documentary series. ford, you know, a lot of analysts saying, hey, this may be great for netflix. but what kind of programs are you -- are you going to think you're going to see from the obama's? i mean, i'm joking but maybe a financial show called you didn't build that or a health show sayin y can keep your doctor. or oba's unbearable legacy. >> here's the deal. the obamas have always been the darling of hollywood. so the fact that they're now going to get this global platform for netflix is no surprise for me particularly in the era of trump. i think what this suggests to me, though, is given the platform. you could see michelle obama using this potentially for a campaign run in 2026 in the way that tv made trump.
liz: okay. i was trying to be funny there. but here's the thing. >> too far. liz: well, hoping change the subject when it comes to his legacy. i'm just joking. this is what people are joking about because it is a funny story. you like to binge watch what? the crown? >> the crown, law and order stuff. liz: are you going to binge watch obama lecturing you. >> well, they have not been as the most electric. people say obama is really charismatic. let's put it this way. they calm him no obama drama. good for them they got a nice contract, you know, and they're going to get what they want. they're private citizens. i'm not necessarily sure. i think there's a lot of fatigue out there for politics and policy. liz: makes a good point; right? >> we want to see garbage on tv. liz: i agree with you. i think a lot of people are turned off by politics. but here's what kills me is president obama his post presidential life, it is amazing how much advantage this man is taking. how much are they getting paid for this?
it's got to be unreal. people out there, i think it might be a good thing for netflix. we'll see. tried to make some funnies there. you guys didn't bite. >> i loved the funnies. liz: we love you guys. come back soon. secretary of state mike pompeo vowing to crush iran with financial and military pressure to end their nuke program. but here's the question. what other countries are going to back us up? we're on that story. and republican investigators are going to meet on thursday with the justice department, the fbi, and people at national intelligence. to get to the bottom of whether there was spying on the 2016 trump campaign and how extensive it allegedly was. we're going to give you the details coming up [music playing] (vo) from day one, we always came through for our customers. it's how we earned your trust. until... we lost it. today, we're renewing our commitment to you. fixing what went wrong. and ending product sales goals for branch bankers.
. liz: 11 republicans now demanding a second special counsel to investigate alleged misconduct inside the justice department and the fbi. it would include the fbi's alleged mishandling of the hillary clinton e-mail server probe. the trump russia probe and abuses. the doj inspector general is already looking into these issues. chief of staff john kelly organizing that meeting between the doj, the fbi, and the congressional investigators tomorrow to review highly -- actually, thursday. to review this information over the alleged spies in the 2016 trump campaign. reports of surfacing there could have been more than one spy there. deputy general rod rosenstein wants the attorney general to
interview whether ther there was any impropriety. let's listen to senator chuck schumer over his demands that the justice department investigate this. watch. >> the president'sbehavior is the kind of grossly autocratic behavior we would expect in a banana republic, not a mature democracy. liz: and this just in. house leader nancy pelosi saying in a statement quote his self-serving cynical campaign demonstrates as blatantly willingness to distort reality for political purposes, utter disregard for the rule of law. let's bring in former special assistant to president trump mark lauder. you know, the thing is, mark, and the overall thing and people watching us. the problem is we're supposed to investigate crimes, not people. there were no crimes here about probable cause into trump collusion in the
campaign. >> i would tell you that senator schumer and nancy pelosi's comments are irresponsible and ignorant on history. let's remember that the fbi had a history back in the darkest days where they created political enemy lists, they surveilled united states citizens, and the church committee was formed by the united states congress to root it out and put an end to it. if it's rearing its ugly head again, we need to make sure that we stamp it out quickly because the men and women of the fbi do great work. they are out there protecting our families. and if a small group of people at the top misuse their power for political purposes, then it needs to be exposed, and it needs to be prosecuted. liz: the meeting now attacking president trump, rationalizing that if this really, truly was political spying, that that information would have been leaked well before trump won. but that didn't happen. what's your take on the media logic here. >> well, i think right now they're just trying to defend their narrative because if they don't talk about russia, they don't have anything to
talk about except a growing economy, a rising paycheck, and america's restored standing on the world stage. so they'll do anything they can to keep the russia narrative going. but the american people are seeing through it. when you look at the president's approval ratings. when you look at -- there was a new poll out today that now shows. republicans are leading in the generic ballot for the 2018 election. the american people see through it. liz: you know, if the fbi was really trying to protect the u.s. voting system during the election from evil russians, then why didn't they tell trump up front about the influence on the russians here? yes, we know about the allegations against his staff aids. we know about all about that. the fact is they didn't bring in trump and say, hey, wait a second. there could be problems coming in through your campaign. that suggests it was political; right? >> it does suggest it's political because they were working hand and glove with hillary clinton's campaign to cover up her alleged crimes, to work with her lawyers slash
coconspirators and giving them plea deals not taking possession of the dnc server. meanwhile, they'reending spie in on the other side to look for what they think might be wrongdoing. it just shows a double standard at the highest levels, and it's just not something the american people can tolerate. liz: striking james comey said there's no wiretapping. james clapper said there was no surveillance. told congress that. and now all of this new information is coming up. by the way, let's back up. how could the fbi spying on the trump campaign not have been for political purposes when you have these text messages between fbi officials peter struck and lisa paige. oh, my god this is terrifying and f trump. considering andrew mccabe's office that there's no way trump gets elected but i'm afraid we can't take that risk. it's an insurance policy in the likely event you die before you're 40. maybe you're meant to stay where you are, peter because you're meant to protect the country from that menace,
meaning trump. he said of course, i'll try to approach it that way. what's your reaction. >> and there's another very telling text message that suggested the white house under president obama was coordinating these activities. so all of these things need to be looked at. it shows you there was a very small group of people there at the top levels of the fbi and the department of justice under the obama administration that were misusing their power and the more we dig into it, the more we are discovering and the more disconcerning it is. liz: you know, the other side said you should go after this. you should be watching the trump campaign given the connections with people close to russia and the ukraine. your reaction to that. finalord. >> it's just hypocrisy because t's remember that bill clintonas out giving, you know, $500,000 paydays while secretary clinton was in office. there are all kinds of influence on a foreign level on her side that didn't raise any red flags. it only did on the republicans. liz: mark, great to see you. come back soon.
>> thanks, liz. liz: let's get to this story. secretary of state mike pompeo vowing to crush iran if they do not comply with the new nuclear deal. that's up next. and president trump calling our border immigration and laws weak. so where are the governs on this? what are they going to do about it? that's coming up a bachelor. and that's how he intended to keep it. then he met the love of his life. who came with a three foot, two inch bonus. for this new stepdad, it's promising to care for his daughter as if she's his own. every way we look out for those we love is an act of mutuality. we can help with the financial ones. learn more or find an advisor at massmutual.com we can help with the financial ones. can be a big bad problem that you could spread to.

knows how extensive iran's reach is. >> well, i think the last administration tried to shield that as they let everything go at the alter of the nuclear deal, and we're finally realizing whether it was drug operations where they were getting money from central america, whether it's terrorism in lebanon with hezbollah or the syrian genocide. their reach in the region and the exportation of terrorism around the world was the growing exponential in the last two years with the nuclear deal. and i think now finally we can begin to breathe a sigh of relief listening to secretary pompeo that that arrow now has shifted from letting them do whatever they wanted. now heading toward containmen c. liz: well, the president of iran cannot decide for the world. i mean, are we sure we're listening to iran on this given all the activities they're involved in. >> it's amazing to me the client we're in because of eight years of appeasement what tyrant seemed to matter. well, if we're happy, then we're doing well. . liz: but that didn't work.
>> it didn't. it allowed half a million people dead in syria, ten million displaced. hezbollah having missiles right next to syria's border, can constant threat on our greatest ally in the middle east, israel. so when you look at the threat of iran, it increased exponentially in the region and across the world. so now finally we have an administration that realizes that tribal leaders, like mian family knows from syria only responds to sength. and if you give them rope, they will hang you with it. liz: that's a heck of a quote because pompeo is now calling for coalition to force the islamic republic to capitulate to plans. and here's the thing, and you know about this. europe is balking. they have a lot of money in iran. and there's no small irony, doctor, that iran helped destabilize syria, which sparked that migrant crisis into europe; right? >> yeah. and the europeans balking is because as they statue their head try to figure out how to solve syria, they ignored the fact that
their kleptocratic interest in opening businesses in tehran seemed to trump any concern about human rights, any concerns about all the crimes against humanity. liz: talk about that. how bad is it in iran. >> it's horrific. women are tortured for wearing skirts down to their knees instead of down to their angels. anyone who expresses religion outside of their radicalism, jews, christians, are imprisoned and unable to practice their faith openly. liz: how are they -- how are people tortured in iran. >> just because of the main prison there in which they are put in chains and shackled and nobody hears from them. they can't talk to their siblings or any of their family. that we be visited. they're put in solitary confinement. it's no different from north korea. liz: capital punishment and executions. >> there are has been more executions in iran than any other country in the world. and it's amazing that the left ignores it because their human rights organizations on the left are a lot of them that
are reporting. liz: women, children, gay people, it's just constant. dr. jasser, we would love to have you back on. you're terrific. >> great to be here. liz: it's great to have you on in the studio. great to see you, sir. thank you for coming in. president trump calling our border security walls weak. but what are governs doing to make a change? we'll give you that story next there's nothing small about your business. with dell small business technology advisors you get the one-on-one partnership you need to grow your business. the dell vostro 15 laptop. contact a dell advisor today.

trump: we're also working with congress to close the crippling loopholes, especially to disgraceful practice of catch and release. that's where you catch somebody, talk to them, sign them, and then you have to release them. and it's a horrible situation. they're supposed to then show up to court a very small percentage up to court. and what happens is they get
lost in our country. and in some cases, these are not people that you want in the country. liz: republican governor dining with president trump at the white house talking border security more. we're talking governs from arkansas, ads, mississippi, new mexico, and south carolina all weighing in on how the current government immigration laws, that they're weak. joining me now former immigration and customs agent u.s. border patrol agent, he is david ward. david, your take on all of this. what's your reaction. >> well, it's about time the governors sat down to realize what's going on in their states with all of these sanctuary cities popping up all over the country. i hope none of them are going to be following governor jerry brown who advocate the sanctuary cause within their states. liz: you know, david, border security under this administration, there's reaction. there's things happening. the president -- what's your take on this? the president said border crossing aown 40%. what else n to be done?
>> well, we ed to secure the border. i mean, every state, every county, every city, every town in this country is affected by the security of our u.s. border, which is not been secured. congress is just sitting on their hands as they usually do, and we need to take proactive action by getting rid of these congressman who are sitting and doing nothing for the american citizens and get this border done. now, as far as the cities and all, we need to go after the politicians who are deliberately obstructing police from doing their job and going after the criminal aliens that are in these cities. liz: steve king has the shaft act which would basically criminalize anybody who is in between the federal government and local officials. but, you know, there's constitutional issues that this oakland mayor who tipped illegals off to the ice chief got first amendment free speech rights here, though. >> yeah. she doesn't have the right to obstruct law. she falls under the supremacy clause of the u.s.
constitution where it's federal law overseas all law. and she has a responsibility to follow the law, follow the oath that she took when she swore herself into office. liz: president trump is coming to new york city tomorrow. he's going to talk about immigration. and the ms13 gangs to this day, david, we have not heard a democrat say the president is right, that there's criminal illegals coming across the border and wreaking havoc and committing violence, including rape, murder, and more. where are the democrats on this story? what is going on here? >> they are the party of the united states. they have absolutely no clue what the ms13 or all of these other foreign national gangs are in the united states. the ms13 are brutal. they go out and murder with machetes, knives, whatever to take out the competition or to take out innocent victims. but the democrats will not did realize that this is going on. president trump was right. what these people do are
beyond being animals. they are brutal, vile filth of this world. liz: david ward, we love having you go on. when we come back soon. okay? >> okay. thank you. liz: we're going to be right back. don't go away it's easy to think that all money managers are pretty much the same. but while some push high commission investment products, fisher investments avoids them. some advisers have hidden and layered fees. fisher investments never does. and while some advisers are happy to earn commissions from you whether you do well or not, fisher investments fees are structured so we do better when you do better. maybe that's why most of our clients come from other money managers. fisher investments. clearly better money management. brbut how will his dentured to thicope with... a steak. luckily for brad, ..
