tv   Sunday Morning Futures With Maria Bartiromo  FOX News  October 9, 2016 7:00am-8:01am PDT

7:00 am
channel. >> we have a huge show tomorrow. join us starting at 6:00 a.m. talking about the debate. >> left the band behind. ♪ good sunday morning. thanks so much for joining us. i'm maria bartiromo. what a sunday morning it is. zero chance, donald trump says he has zero chance to quit. this in the wake of a video showing him making lewd comments about women. we will speak to the trump campaign. wiki leaks releasing explosive e-mails from the clinton campaign some showing excerpts from some of clinton's
7:01 am
paid speeches behind closed doors. all eyes on the st. louis debate. what will candidates say? as we look ahead right now on sunday morning futures. >> we are about 30 days away from the presidential election and just a few hours away from the second presidential debate. it is all about the debate today. both sides of this race are preparing this morning and we are getting ready to speak with one of the leaders of the trump campaign and that is senator jeff sessions from alabama. we will get his commentary on that video and on trump seems to be digging in and staying in this race regardless of calls for him to step aside. some of those calls are looking at governor mike pence, should he be at the top of the ticket right now? clinton and her team are on the
7:02 am
attack and ready for battle tonight. joining me now is ed rawlings. you have been around this up teen times. >> this is the campaign that a month ago it is almost a dead even race before this tape came out. trump has had a bad ten days ever since the debate. to get back on issues and on the difference between him and hillary on the substance, the economy, his tax plan. he may get back to the race. it will be a mud fight. you get in the mud fight the only one to satisfy -- my sense is they are an expert at doing this. he doesn't have the team or organization. his biggest problem is if the rnc decides to pull out which there are indications they might be. >> donald trump has said so many
7:03 am
things over the last year. in any other world this race would have been over a long time ago. donald trump would have lost a long time ago. what he said about john mccain, what he said about so many other things and yet it is still a 50/50. what strikes me is how unlikable she really is, that people are reluctantly saying i'm not surprised at what he said and staying with trump. >> the bottom line is they are not sure what kind of president trump will be. he will be better than what is there. they know she won't be. her policies are more entitlement programs and i think people don't want to go back to that. the warning sign is there is a slight erosion and he has to have women, older women. he has to basically have suburban women and young women and has to have evangelicals to be supportive. if any group starts to move away
7:04 am
he has to doa lot of maya copa. and move forward on that front. >> i want to talk more to you coming up. i want to bring in jeff sessions, trump campaign advisers. thanks very much for joining us. >> thank you. >> how does he dig in and say i'm not quitting when you have the likes of condoleeza rice saying please step down and people within his party saying there is no way i can endorse him. how does he believe he can move forward at this point? >> this is a movement. it's not led from the top. it is led from the bottom. all the endorsements went to other people in the primary and he crushed them. he beat 16 people. he had the largest number of votes a primary candidate has ever gotten. what he needs to do is return to his people and make sure that they understand who he is, what his vision for america is and
7:05 am
how what he is doing is authentic, truthful. he is going to help them with their daily lives. what she is is a typical politician he has been running against. that is somebody who says one thing on election day and does another thing when she gets elected and takes office. she admitted openly that she has a secret plan contrary to what she publically states. >> authenticity is one word to put it with regards to trump. senator, let me ask you this, put aside the vulgarity of what he said and look at judgment. even supporters this morning are saying bad judgment to speak this way. so how are supporters supposed to get over that? i'm not surprised that donald trump has said lewd things in private. i don't think many people are
7:06 am
surprised. donald trump has said whatever he wants to say for the last year. when you consider the fact that judgment is so critical, to be the person in that oval office, how do people get beyond that? >> well it was 11 years ago he thought he was in a private conversation. it's the kind of language that he does need to apologize for and needs to apologize because it basically demeans women and is not respectful. i think that is the fundamental problem there. it wasn't illegal or extreme or malicious or mean spirited comments. it was very demeaning. i think he needs to address that. he needs to apologize for it. but his advocacy for sound policies ending unlawful immigration. hillary clinton said on secret speeches that she believes in open borders. flat out she believes in open
7:07 am
borders. she won't tell the american people that. her policies and barack obama's policies are open borders policies. i have been saying it for years now. the american people are sick of this kind of one statement to them and another thing in election day. he has run against that all the way through. that issue has legs that will go to election day in my opinion. >> i think those e-mails were damaging, but the spot light on donald trump is bright right now. here we are -- >> yes, it's a pile on, a full fledged attack on him. if they can decapitate the leader of the movement they decapitate the movement. this is a big deal. this time and his performance tonight and what happens is important. i think our republican colleagues need to take a deep breath here and slow down. we have a man bringing in new
7:08 am
voters in through our party. he will get an unprecedented number of union vote. so i think this is the kind of thing that we need to evaluate what is happening out there and on this issue of these tapes important right now and it hurt but it is not the end of the game. >> let me ask you about the debate. it is all about the debate now. this is probably the most important debate and most important presidential election in many of our life times. so the last debate there was a lot of talk that the entire debate donald trump was on defense explaining how his father may more may not have helped him. how is he not on defense when he walks in there tonight and how is this going to be a better debate performance than the first debate knowing he is 100% on defense because of this tape? >> it is not going to be easy. there is no doubt about it. it is easy for us to say you
7:09 am
should pivot and get on the offensive immediately. for somebody who hasn't spent his life in politics it's not as easy as people say. it is going to be a challenge and certainly hillary has an answer for every single thing. she is a smooth talker. she talks. what donald trump is is a builder, a doer. we haven't gotten results for the american people. that is what he is selling and what he needs to talk about. >> that is what he is preparing for this morning? >> he has been preparing. all of this recent developments has got to have broken the plans that he had to focus on certain other issues. it's going to be an interesting evening. he will have a very difficult challenge before him. he is talented, strong, courageous. i think we are going to see the kind of performance and projection on his values and his
7:10 am
vision for america that people want to hear. >> real quick, you just mentioned the open borders. you have done so much good work on immigration. i know that that was one of the reasons that donald trump relied on you so much early in this campaign. let me ask you about that and how you are going to push that agenda of keeping america safe and policy around immigration regardless. how are you going to do that in congress and senate? >> well, the most dramatic thing is american people have to know congress really can't get this done if the president won't even carry out the laws of the united states. hillary clinton is to the left of barack obama. she has said repeatedly. she wants to bring in 65,000 refugees from syria, the obama administration last year was 10,000. this is dramatic to the left of him on a host of issues. so if she is elected president
7:11 am
i'm not sure we can fix it. this may be the last chance for america to reestablish a lawful system of immigration. remember in that secret speech she gave that was revealed friday she said she believed in open borders. open borders. that is a radical position that cannot get support of the american people. it will be in the forefront of november when people vote. >> is that the most important policy that donald trump needs to push in his economic policy? >> i think it's the kind of policy that will go to november because he said one thing in public and another in private. trade is also. these trade agreements have not worked. i studied them and voted for them in the past. they are not working for the american people. they know it and she says on that speech to the big bankers who are giving her money she said in that speech that she wants a free trade zone like the
7:12 am
european union for the americans, the western hemisphere. we are not ready for that. the british are pulling out of the eu. we absolutely don't need to be going down that path by having a president with that as a secret agenda for our country. >> is the 45% tariff on china good or better? >> he said he never wanted to do that. he said you can put that kind of tariff up. some estimated we are being cheated by that much. he said you have to stand up for america and replace it. he believes in trade. he absolutely does. he does not want to end trade. he will use the powers that we have, the market power we have, the access they want to push back against unfair trading practices and defend american manufacturing and american workers. i believe donald trump has got it right on trade and he is a
7:13 am
good negotiator and he will push back and we'll get some improvement in our relationship with the trading partners. >> we will be watching tonight. thanks so much for joining us this morning. we'll see you soon. hillary clinton, meanwhile, face agnew e-mail problem now. wiki leaks releasing thousands of hacked messages from her campaign. what does thisilated document dump mean? follow on twitter. what do you want to hear from gene spurling? he is up next. we are live. when you're close to the people you love, does psoriasis ever get in the way of a touching moment? if you have moderate to severe psoriasis, you can embrace
7:14 am

7:15 am
7:16 am
welcome back.
7:17 am
hillary clinton potentially facing big problems of her own headed into tonight's town hall debate in st. louis after wiki leaks released a trove of e-mails apparently hacked from her campaign chairman's account containing thousands of messages revealing alleged excerpts from paid speeches. let's talk about it with gene spurling, former director of national council for presidents clinton and obama. thanks for joining us. >> thanks, maria. good to be here. >> let's kick it off with e-mails. one of the most damaging out there is apparently from april 2013. here is the quote f. -- if everybody is watching then people get nervous so you need a public and a private position. she is talking about trade here and how she was brought up in a modest household but now enjoys
7:18 am
luxurious and rich life with her husband, bill clinton so maybe she doesn't relate to those people. she needs a private position on trade as well as a public position on trade. it's like are you on now or later? >> so first thing is let's just recognize what we are talking about. it is hard to respond in the following way which is that normally i would not respond to anything i did not know was verified and said. this is the russian government hacking a senior official of a democratic party for the purpose of trying to help the republican candidate. this is the u.s. intelligence forces agreeing and verifying that you have russian officials, the russian government hacking, trying to hack to effect our campaign. i don't know exactly what is in there, what is right, what is
7:19 am
not right. this is their version of what they said was a memo to john podesta, somebody describing excerpts. i feel like you want to ask me what her positions are, i have known her for 24 years. i have worked with her on these positions on wall street. i was there in 2007 and 2008 when she long before the worst of the crisis called for a freeze on foreclosures, called for a freeze on adjustable rate mortgages going up, called for regulating derivatives. i was there with her early in the campaign when we talked about her talking about having a plan that was sort of a take on too big to fail and too big to jail. when you look with hillary clinton she was the one who was talking very strongly about
7:20 am
increasing clawbacks from executive compensation well before wells fargo happened. i don't know what excerpts came out of a line here or there. let's look at her record. she opposed tpp. >> first she was for tpp and then she turned against it. a lot of people feel like she should not have turned against it. a lot of people in her camp feel we should have free trade. >> a lot of people get very excited about buying a house or buy ag car and then kick the tires and look in it and make a decision whether they will go forward or whether it is not a good enough deal to accept it. in her case she was working for a president with the best intentions wanted to put together a trade deal that was going to isolate china and going to be much better than the deals we had before. she was part of that team.
7:21 am
she worked on it. then she left and had to look two years later how it turned out. she thought it was not strong enough on currency, on rule -- >> stay right there. i want to keep this going. we will take a quick break and be right back. stay with us. i'm vern, the orange money retirement rabbit from voya. orange money represents the money you put away for retirement. over time, your money could multiply. hello, all of you. get organized at
7:22 am
7:23 am
7:24 am
i am joined by gene spurling. we are in the middle of a conversation. before we went to the break you said clinton looked at this, kicked the tires on tpp after first she was for it and decided this is not good. why is she against it? there is a lot of people out there. i'm speaking to ceos of global businesses and they say we want tpp. what is the problem?
7:25 am
>> look, i think hillary clinton feels the central issue in our campaign and in the country right now is middle class security when have a broad, inclusive middle class and whether or not we are reducing economic inequality. what she is focussed on is whether we are having job creation that encourages location, value added jobs in the united states. i think she is not somebody who has always been for trade agreements. the main multi lateral trade agreement was central american free trade agreement. she was against that. she has been case by case on trade. she looks at the impact it is i think when you look at things like rule of origin, currency, manipulation, other measures she did not feel that this met her test for the type of job creation and that she wanted the
7:26 am
type of job creation initiative and she wants a focus on a plan to focus on manufacturing, small business, infrastructure, things that will tighten labor market further, lead to higher wages and things that will effect family security like family medical leave and child care. this is the heart and soul of her agenda. i just think that for her tpp didn't meet the test and that she has made clear she is against it now and will be against it during the lame duck and after the campaign. she is going to be fighting for a stronger economy that is going to work for middle class families and for poor families to move up. that's the focus. we understand people disagree. president obama who we think is honorable and champion of the middle class disagrees that this is where she is. she did it by looking closely at the final deal. i think that is what people would want. >> that is what she has to focus
7:27 am
on tonight with the debate. everything you said sounds like she agrees with donald trump on tpp. let me ask you about the debate and economic policy because you are so good on policy. how is she going to walk this balance tonight by talking about creating jobs when we have an economy that is crawling along. you know we just got the jobs numbers out on friday. it was 156,000 jobs for the month of september, below expectations. a lot of people are upset. they haven't seen wages move. how will she say i'm going to create jobs when she is raising taxes on highest earners and you and i know that is going to hit small business. if it is the biggest creator of jobs why are you raising taxes on small business? >> you said a lot of things there. i'm a michigan football fan. we are fourth in the country now. we were 8-8 a couple of years ago. we think we have gotten way, way better. we would like to get to number
7:28 am
one and beat ohio state. look at the u.s. economy. barack obama inherited it on the verge of a depression. if you look at job creation 15 million jobs. that is best since the clinton administration. better than any of the previous republican administrations and on wages even on wages and income you know the census report shows the largest one-time increase in household income. 2805%. >> so what it shows is that the kind of economic plan that focuses on middle class has led to a lot of enormous improvement. a lot hasn't been better. i think what she is going to be saying is exactly that.
7:29 am
>> he had both houses on his team in the first four years and he still didn't -- >> he had both houses on his team for the first two years. what did he do? he helped take us from a near depression to out of recession in just six months. and here is a trivia question. what was mitt romney's number one goal when he ran in 2012? to reduce unemployment rate by the end of 2016. we are sitting here now with unemployment at 5%. it has been even lower. 15 million private sector jobs, a very strong jobs creation element. i think she can say exactly because of barack obama and because of that kiepd of focus things have gotten stronger, but she can come in now and not happy to spend first years focussing on financial crisis and zero in on middle class
7:30 am
security, middle class wages. we are going to help the small businesses. she has a new small business tax cut including standard deduction for small business, simplification, better tax cut. she is not going to use pretext of small business to say investment bankers, hedgefund managers, corporate tax lawyers get 15% raise which is what donald trump has at the same time under donald trump's plan -- >> you don't think lowering -- >> making 40,000 would pay a 25% rate. his own plan somebody making 40,000 pays a higher marginal rate than a person with business or partnership income making $4 million. >> highest corporate taxes in the industrialized world got us? $156,000 jobs. we have been seeing high taxes and not spending money. they are not investing in
7:31 am
people. >> you keep saying something that is just not correct that the number of jobs created has not been strong. it's been so much stronger than any republican administration we have seen in 20 years. unemployment has come down to 5% much --
7:32 am
7:33 am
7:34 am
i want to apologize for that rough out. my thanks to gene spurlings and apologizes that we had to get out of that interview with a
7:35 am
hard break. we will have him back very soon on the fox business network as well as on this program. it is round two for hillary clinton and donald trump tonight. the pressure is on for the republican nominee and tonight's debate trump comes into the matchup with eroding support from his own party following his latest controversy. the turmoil adding to unpredictable nature that surrounds a town hall style format. joining me are the the chair men of the debate commission. thanks for joining us. we appreciate it. >> glad to be here. >> we should point out also the former press secretary to president clinton. it is good to have you. obviously, the interest in tonight's debate could not be higher than it is right now. let me ask you about the town hall format and why this format was chosen. kick us off in terms of town
7:36 am
hall versus one-on-one or one-on-two moderator style. >> it is also a change from town hall in the past. previously we had about 100 people from the st. louis area that would be in bleachers. we felt that was getting a little stale. what we have done is we sort of cut it in half. we are going to have about 40 people on stage who have the ability to ask questions. we have two moderators. and they for half of the debate will balance it will be asking questions that have come in through social media where they themselves have selected questions. it's to see the candidates in another vierchlt rather than just standing behind podiums. we have had a town hall meeting since '92. >> let me make one point on this format, too. we do in the off years when there are no presidential
7:37 am
debates here our staff goes around the world to help consult with other countries. one thing they say over and over again is they think it is remarkable in the american democratic system we have average citizens questioning our leaders. that doesn't happen in a lot of other countries. >> how do you make sure that the debate doesn't get dominated by sort of the news of the day. obviously, tonight, i know you gentleman are not going to weigh in on the latest controversy around donald trump or hillary clinton. how do you ensure that the questions that the american people want answered are looked at, for example, immigration, vetting at our borders, jobs and the economy and economic growth, how does it fought get dominated by what donald trump said on a tape 11 years ago? >> i will take a crack at that. it is our two moderators, they control the questions and they
7:38 am
get to decide who gets asked what. the other point is that we have real american citizens there on the stage asking questions. i think it is much more likely that they are going to talk about and ask about the things that are on their mind, policy, trade. issues that really are on the minds of the american people. the media is currently consumed in the prenzy over some issues that have ecorrupted in the last couple of days. it will be up to the citizens and the moderators who pick the questions and they will get a chance to talk to the town hall participants and find out what is on their minds. they get to select what we really talk about at this debate and hopefully it will be more than what the current controversy of the day is. >> how are the moderators chosen? >> that is one of the hardest things we have to do. we watch a great deal of
7:39 am
television because we pretty much decided we have to go to the electronic media. we may make changes in the future. for people used to working with this in their ear because the moderator connects with the producer off stage. we watch to make sure that we are not talking about someone who is bias one way or the other. we find people going down the middle. we also look for diversity. we are quite proud of the people that we came up with in this series of debates. it's very hard decision. normally what happens whoever thinks they lost the debate they blame it on the moderator. you have to have a lot to do this. >> did both campaigns have to weigh in and give an okay to each moderator? >> no. we are very clear about that. they do not get a chance to vet the moderators. we use our best judgment and advise the campaigns this is who we have selected and are going
7:40 am
with. >> real quick. >> it used to be a debate over the debate. we pick the dates and locations and format. we pick the moderators. >> will the moderators know what the audience wants to ask? in other words, will the moderator see the question in advance? will the candidates see the questions in advance? >> they need to. they will have an tuopportunityo get to know the citizens on the stage and have an idea. the campaigns, the candidates and we on the commission will have no idea what is being asked. they will be screening questions from social media, from facebook, twitter, other social media sites. so they will know what kinds of questions they want to do. it is up to the moderators to work that into the program. they have an extraordinary difficult challenge. i think even more so than lester holt and your colleague chris
7:41 am
wallace who will moderate the third debate this is probably technically a lot more challenging. >> congratulations to the both of you. it will be widely watched. we will be there and talking about it. thank you very much. we appreciate it. we will see you soon. a look at what is coming up, media buzz. >> doesn't look like howie has my audio. he is in st. louis. we will take you back to st. louis shortly. you there? >> i'm here. we had a little audio problem. there has been one story that dominated for the last 48 hours and the old trump tape. we will look at whether that is over the top and talk to the reporter who broke the story. >> how long did they sit on that story before releasing the tape? how long have they known they
7:42 am
had that tape of donald trump? >> it's amazing that it took this long to come out and comes out on the eve of the second debate. suspicious questions about the timing. >> what a coincidence. we will see you in 20 minutes. what can we expect tonight? our panel is next and it's a good one. stay with us. you can run an errand. (music playing) ♪ push it real good... (announcer vo) or you can take a joyride. bye bye, errands, we sing out loud here. siriusxm. road happy. to be taken care of. in good hands? like finding new ways home, car, life insurance obviously, ohhh... but with added touches you can't get everywhere else, like claim free rewards... or safe driving bonus checks.

7:44 am
7:45 am
(howard stern on radio) welcome to show business. (announcer vo) or you can hear the rest of howard. bababooey! (announcer vo) sorry, confused neighbors, howard's on. siriusxm. road happy. welcome back. take a live look at washington university in st. louis. the action has begun. site of the second presidential debate. it will be big where donald trump and hillary clinton will face off in twin controversies this weekend. ed raulens is the chief strategist for trump superpack.
7:46 am
shelby holiday and tony republican political strategist. good to see everybody. thank you for joining us. you are still on that superpack. a lot of colleagues in the gop are walking away from donald trump. >> i operated on the fact that in these battles it is like being in the alamo. there is no back door. donald trump earned the nomination and has to try to get people to the game. he has to add voters every day and not lose voters. >> can he survive this? >> tonight is a huge night for him. i can't emphasize how much is riding on the debate. he has to prove he is a change agent as well as changed man. he needs to deflect and attack hillary clinton. hillary clinton is dealing with some of her own fallout. if he cannot emphasize that it may be over. >> i think it is a good point. that is one of the things he said in that apologize. met a lot of people over the
7:47 am
last year. i heard them. i changed. do we believe it? >> and these comments were made 11 years ago at a different time in donald trump's life with different priorities. he was much more of an entertainment celebrity. every person has a chance to evolve. let's remember something else. i would suggest taking a page out of the bill clinton play book in 1992 when he was barraged by a lot of scandal related to sexual innuindo. bill clinton just charged on. he campaigned for every vote, worked really hard and look what happen happened. the american electorate has an interesting aspect. we are big believers in redemption and contrition. donald trump has to be candid and contrite. if he doesn't do that it will be hard to pull off. >> one important thing. if he hadn't gone after miss universe after the last debate
7:48 am
which did severe damage it just adds up. from here on his thing has to be to have his wife and daughter by his side and talking about issues that matter to women. women are the key to the election right now. >> he goes into the debate on defense. and that first debate that is what the problem was. as soon as he walked out he was on defense. once again he finds himself explaining. i'm not surprised that donald trump might make a lewd comment in private. he has shown us who he is and says what is on his mind. maybe he has changed in that regard. he is still going to be explaining rather than communicating his message. >> he has to go from being an entertainer which is what he has been to being a real leader who is advocating a change policy in washington. >> there is a key block of the republican base that is extremely intrenthusiastic abou
7:49 am
voting for donald trump. they will not go anywhere after these comments but they are these voters who have decided they will hold their nose and vote for donald trump. hillary clinton on the flip side it's up to her to seal the deal. she is going on an early voting tour to try to tell people to get out there tomorrow. >> really strikes me that this would have been over if it were any other candidate on the other side. hillary clinton is that unliked. that disliked that actually -- >> there is a belief that she is fundamentally corrupt and dishonest and people aren't excited about the alternative. two important things to remember. donald trump has to turn this conversation into i may have said certain things. she has done certain things and point out the foundation, that is the important pivot. this revelation does not change
7:50 am
macrodynamic. he is strongest when talking about the economy, jobs, trade, immigration. if he can pivot he can win back a lot of that. >> i want to talk about that after this break because it is very soon now looking like a campaign of what he said versus what she did, more from the panel right after this short break. what's going on here? i'm val, the orange money retirement squirrel from voya. we're putting away acorns. you know, to show the importance of saving for the future. so you're sort of like a spokes person? more of a spokes metaphor. get organized at

7:53 am
we are just hours away from the second debate between hillary clinton and donald trump. the candidates are facing off tonight in st. louis as new polls behind clinton with an advantage in two key battle ground states, in pennsylvania clinton has a 12 point lead in a four-way race and in florida the race is closer, clinton ahead by 3 points, which is within the margin of error. we're back with our panel, ed rollins, shelby holiday and tony
7:54 am
saeg. >> pennsylvania was something we were hopeful for although have not won since 1988, but it was state that was ideally suited for him in the sense of a lot of blue collar union laborers. i think it's gone now. i think they've run a better campaign there. florida is the key here, if we lose florida we can't win this presidency. i think we are in good shape in ohio although i'm disappointed that senator portman is really the key, so you have the senator and the governor still against trump there, so we need ohio. we lose ohio -- >> but some of these guys and gals who are right now in their own reelection campaign, even if they are going to go behind closed doors and vote for trump they can't tell the world they are going to do that because they are in a reelection. >> the problem we face today is we will still be a splint erred party when we get this thing done. if trump wins this thing he has to try to bring the party back together again. if trump loses this thing the party is going to have a holy war. >> so if pennsylvania is not there does he still have a path to win? >> absolutely.
