come home. trish: think about how significant that is, liz. the people of venezuela have struggled throughout the last shall we say nearly 0 years under socialist hugo chavez and now nicolas maduro. nicolas maduro has made things especially painful. 90% of the population is leg in poverty. they don't have food, water or medicine. the international community is there ready, willing, and able to help. u.s. aid is ready with beans and rice and essentials they need. and nicolas maduro is making it clear he does not want his people having access to any of this. even if it means the difference in some cases of life or death. he would choose to see his people die than give them aid

a letter signed by national security advisors, mostly democrats, will be added to the congressional record. quote, we are aware of no emergency that remotely justifies such a step. under no plausible assessment of the evidence there is a national emergency that entitles the president to tap into fund for other purposes to build a border wall. the u.s. military is limited by law in what it can do, and the army corps of engineers contracts out any construction which must be tied to protecting u.s. troops. >> so for the border patrol, any place you have people who can

apowell just for the regime? venezuela, cuba and nicaragua. he said mr. ortega was an impressive guy. this is a guy who was not tomorrow a dictator, but a pedophile. liz: the report that he's a pedophile, the reports come out whereabout that? >> it's been reported all throughout the press years ago. ortega was a dictator before, he came back to power and now won't leave again. liz: video surfaced of comments sanders made in the 1980s. here is what he said about fidel castro. >> everybody was totally convinced castro was the worst guy in the world. all the cuban people would rise up against limb. he gave hem healthcare and
6:33 pm
totally transformed the country. but just because ronald reagan dislikes him it doesn't mean the people in their own nation feel the same. liz: he said it's funny sometimes american journalists talk about how bad a country is because people line up for food. in other countries. rich people get the food and poor people starve to death. he says i remember being excited. kennedy was saying nixon was too soft on communism. i actually got from the room and almost left to puke. your reaction, sir. >> how do you react to statements like that praising murderers, serial killers. that's what the castro brothers

are. and they are vehemently anti-american. but that's what the radical left stands for. it's not just senator sanders. it's a lot of the folks here in the house, there aren't that's of them thank god that have that points of view. but some believe whether it's the castro dictatorship or or day go dictatorship. i don't if it's because they are anti-american that they admire them. but they admire them. liz: how are the people in florida whose family members suffered at the hands of leaders likes castro tore maduro. what are they saying? >> it's interesting the support the president now has in southern florida where you have the nicaraguans and cubans and venezuelans who had to endure those dictatorships. if you look at president trump's numbers, he gets and those on
6:35 pm
the extreme left, necessity just don't. liz: that was the congressman's characterization of daniel ortega, we don't have independent confirmation of that claim. because my body can still make its own insulin. and i take trulicity once a week to activate my body to release it, like it's supposed to. trulicity is not insulin. it starts acting in my body from the first dose and continues to work when i need it, 24/7. trulicity is an injection to improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. don't use it as the first medicine to treat diabetes, or if you have type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. don't take trulicity if you or your family have medullary thyroid cancer, you're allergic to trulicity, or have multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2.

6:41 pm
they are accepting juan guaido's amnesty. do you see that as a turning point? >> it will take a lot more than 150 or 200 soldiers. so this is encourage. it's still a very, very small scale. and it's early days. >> we are hearing the cuban military intelligence is all over that country. any military defectors right now fear for their lives and the lives of their families. your reaction to that? >> they should. they should be concerned about their family members. that's the way these guys work. the reprisals aren't just against the individual who has done something. >> how do you get income * out? >> you have to maintain the pressure. you have to step up the pressure. you have to do something which vice president pence was work
6:42 pm
hard at today. to keep an international alliance against maduro. it's mott just enough for the united states to embardot bank accounts and saying you can't do business with the oil company. we need our allies in the democratic community to do that as well. latin america, europe, asia. and we all have to do it. and that's not easy. liz: thank you so many. we'll be right back. stay right there. that's why t. screen light... sunlight... longer hours... eyes today are stressed. but ocuvite has vital nutrients... ...to help protect them. ocuvite. eye nutrition for today. you hardly ever play catch with the grandkidsalk? or show them how to give a good handshake anymore. now look at me... i'm all bent out of shape.

6:47 pm
their socialist policy ideas. kamala harris tried to set the record straight. >> i'm a progressive democrat. i'm a proud democrat. i'm not a socialist. liz: kamala harris refusing to give a clear answer how to fay for the things in the green new deal. >> which portions of the green new deal you pick to do first, that's money. republicans will say pie in the sky. >> it's not about the cost it's about an investment. the question should be is it worth the cost? are we going to get back more than we put in? liz: kelsey buller, why can't senator harris answer how to pay for these grand and expensive plans? >> the reason is because there is no answer how you pay for
6:48 pm
these programs. besides taxing the middle class. we know taxing the rich will only get you so far. if you look at states like new york and connecticut, all they have done is driven residents out of their states. so democrats, i think are going and should continue to be pressed about how they want to pay for these massive programs like the green new deal and medicare for all. i don't expect them to have any answers besides pie in the sky answers like taxing the rich. liz: hillary clinton's campaign team is pointing out the hypocrisy of bernie sanders. bernie sanders in his campaign launched video singled out the oil and gas industry for criticism. >> i'm talking about wall street, the health insurance companies, the drug companies, the fossil fuel industry, the it in industrial complex, the private prison industry, and the large multi-national
6:49 pm
corporations that exert such an enormous influence over our lives. liz: hillary clinton's campaign staffers are slamming bernie sanders saying he has a private jet problem. here's what's going on. the vermont senator's 2016 extra travel became a running joke in the office, that's a story according to "politico." when bernie sanders withdrew from his campaign staffers said they expected him to fly on commercial airlines 90% of the time. it didn't happen. the clinton campaign's director described quote i am not shocked while thousands of volunteers braved the heat and cold to knock on doors until their fingers bled to stop donald trump. his majesty bernie sanders would onlonly deign to leave his plush
6:50 pm
d.c. office or his brand-new second home on the lake if he was flown around on a cushy private jet like a billionaire master of the universe. the senate campaign committee paid for all that. i thought he was anti-fossil fuel and anti-wealthy. he has a big car bomb footprint. >> there is so much hypocrisy here. it's not just bernie sanders. it's where democrats who tell everyday americans how to live their lives. they are deck tag it what times of cars we should drive. telling us we shouldn't be flying planes. then look at them, they are flying their own private jets, telling us how to live, but they
6:51 pm
can't even live up to their own standards. it's hypocritical and americans are not buying it. liz: president trump is on his way to the second summit with kim jong-un of core. of. it was here. i couldn't catch my breath. it was the last song of the night.

6:55 pm
>> retired general jack keane expressed his skepticism yesterday. >> the trump administration has come to the realization that for a country that spent 15 years acquiring nuclear weapons and
6:56 pm
now is a bona fide nuclear power with ballistic missiles is not going to denuclearize and disarm all of them in two years. they realize that that is unrealistic objective. i don't believe we're going to get what we've wanted from the first summit on which is an inventory of their weapons, a timetable to support denuclearization and a commitment to independent observers. i believe the administration has pulled back from that. >> joining me now is retired brigadier general. sir, great to see you what is your expectations or the summit? -- of the summit? >> great to see you too. i know that kim jong-un has committed to an inventory and the inspectors. so, you know, i know jack keane. he's a great friend and a great leader. i just have a different, you know view on this, on that the trump administration from day one i don't think ever expected kim jong-un to all of a sudden say here are all of my nuclear
6:57 pm
weapons, let's destroy them tomorrow. >> the president been tweeting that; right? hasn't he said that? >> my viewpoint on what the president is saying is that, you know, he places a lot on relationships and trust between two people. i think that he senses security in the relationship he has with kim jong-un and with good reason. we haven't had a nuclear test in 18 months. missile fired in 15 months. the remains have been returned, 20 inspection stations along the dmz have been dismantled along with mine fields. they are opening up the business center, the joint business center we between south korea and north korea. kim jong-un has purged some people that are resisting the drive toward unification on the peninsula. so there are all the indicators are there that kim jong-un means business and is serious about this. >> purging is a terrible thing. general, to your point, the foreign policy experts are saying that essentially this is one position that the north korean leader will never ever
6:58 pm
get rid of his nukes because, you know, so long as the u.s. has a presence in that part of the world, there's no way that north korea will ever get rid of its nukes so long as the u.s. is there. your take on that? >> i think the choice of vietnam, it is once a divided country that is now unified. they are going to go to this once divided country and see what the opportunities are for north and south and then they are going to go back to -- kim jong-un will go back up on his train to north korea and have a vision of what can happen. let's remember, liz, that he came into office with a vision of having an economically prosperous nation and also being a nuclear power. it's not unrealistic to believe that he's actually quite smart and will trade off one for the other and be remembered possibly as the one who led north korea
6:59 pm
to this economic prosperity. that is possible. >> he wants to be part of the economic community of nations. >> that's right. >> that's what president trump fully is aware of; right? >> that's correct. and, you know, when secretary pompeo went over there multiple times, he came back, you know, i've been in the dmz. i've been to south korea. they are very industrious people. there's no reason that the south and the north can't be just alike because they are the same people. they have the same ethic. they have the same agriculture, the same, you know, land and terrain. so there's no reason that one can't prosper, you know, as the other has. and north korea fully has that opportunity. it will take a lot of investment and infrastructure for sure, connecting the small towns and the big cities and allowing for that kind of economy to grow. liz: general, thank you very much. thank you for your service to our country. come back soon. >> thank you. liz: thank you for having us in your homes. thank you very much for watching.
7:00 pm
lou dobbs is next right here on the fox business network. have a good evenin lou: good evening everybody. this will be a week to remember. seldom if ever has any president taken on as many fundamental some would say existential challenges as president trump in this single week. foreign policy dominating president trump's agenda and i -- itinerary. he's now aboard air force one. he's in the 7th hour of what will be an almost 20 hour flight headed to vietnam. hanoi the site of his second summit meeting with north korea's kim jong-un. >> we're going to have i
