tv   Your World With Neil Cavuto  FOX News  May 31, 2018 1:00pm-2:00pm PDT

1:00 pm
cars and trucks helped them win the second world war. the dow took a little bit of a downer today. that happens from time to time. cavuto starts now. >> the conditions are putting president trump and chairman kim jong-un a place where we think there can be real progress made by the two of them meeting. it does no good if there's not real opportunity to place them together. we made real progress towards that in the last 72 hours. >> neil: all right. real progress for the big meeting. not so much at wall and broad. welcome. i'm neil cavuto. this is "your world." markets love that kind of thing. anyone that wants peace loves that thing that the talks could be back on between the leader of the united states and the leader of north korea next months. the same exact time and place as was originally supposed to be the case. it's what happened in the interim where the president decided to get tough on trade as an opening salvo sent to the chinese through our friends like
1:01 pm
the mexicans and the canadians and the europeans. tariffs on steel and aluminum. we'll get to that in a second. first, to rich edson at the state department on what happened today. rich? >> good afternoon, neil. the secretary of state acknowledges real progress but he says this is going to be difficult to change decades of north korean beliefs and behaviors. he and the vice chairman from north korea, kim young chul met several hours the last do you mean days, last fight for dinner and this morning for a few hours. pompeo said it would be nothing less than tragic to let this opportunity to go to waste. secretary pompeo says his mission is to convince kim jong-un that his nuclear weapons present a threat to his security. while he expressed optimism,
1:02 pm
pompeo says they're difficult and will likely continue to be. >> there's been some difficult conversations and difficult times. they've given it back to me, too. decades into this challenge. one not ought to be surprised or frightened or deterred by moments where it looks like this are challenges and difficult things that can't be bridged. our mission is to bridge them. >> a week ago, president trump released a letter cancelling summit with kim jong-un. now his vice chairman is in new york city and brings with him a letter of his own. secretary says he will deliver it tomorrow from kim jong-un. reporters also asked the secretary if the summit is still on in singapore. the secretary says he doesn't know the answer to that. while this is i don't know going in new york, kim jong-un is in pyongyang meeting with the russians as they try to get involved. he hosted sergey lavrov, the
1:03 pm
russian minister and invited him to moscow. neil? >> neil: let's get the read on this with retired u.s. later my lieutenant colonel bob mcguinness. it looks like it's on. in that case, what do you think? >> that's good news if it's back on. i think we're tired of having 28,000 people be a trip wire in south korea. the fact that lavrov was there providing greetings from putin and kim jong-un has met twice here with xi from china, he's getting a lot of mentoring. so the geo politics of this are more than what we've seen perhaps just with kim jong-un's father and grandfather in the past. this could be very complicated. i'd like to see the letter,
1:04 pm
whatever that letter looks like that mike pompeo delivers to the president. very important. it's going be a gesture, hopefully a good gesture is. >> neil: i'm curious about the letter as well. but i'm reminded that you mentioned china before. it's interesting that this general, kim young chul, the number 2 power figure, had just flown to this meeting yesterday from a separate meeting in china with the chinese leader much as the north korean leader had two meetings in as many months with the chinese leader. that kind of rattled the president who noticed the distinct change of behavior on the part of kim jong-un post that second meeting. what do you think? >> well, president xi when he met with the young leader -- this is supposition on my part -- reminded this young man that look, i'm going to be president for life thanks to an amendment of the constitution.
1:05 pm
further, president trump is only going to be around for at most seven more years. so you need to understand who to deal with here. your nuclear program right now is probably creating problems for me. i'm concerned about what might happen should the u.s. send more thads and other anti-ballistic missiles to south korea. i'm concerned about the japanese. they're increasing their defense budget. president xi has big ambitions and doesn't need this nasty problem in north korea to continue to undermine what he's doing. lavrov was delivering the same message to the young leader. >> neil: all right. colonel, thanks for stopping by. colonel bob served our country notably here. this was not something that was nobly greeted in the financial markets. the president making good on tariff threats with countries that send us a lot of steel and
1:06 pm
aluminum. 25% tariff on steel-related products. 10% on aluminum. this isn't really an opening salvo to china. it's meant more to hurt the mexicans and canadians. none of them like it. germany planning a response. the mexicans have been quiet but they're not going quietly when it comes to a response. the former state department official, anyet emanuel. the markets fell off on this news. it didn't look like the was was going to do it. now he did what do you think? >> slapping tariffs on your closest allies is not a smart policy. the chinese are cheating. they're playing a hundred year game. they're focusing on industries of the future, robots,
1:07 pm
aerospace. we need to push back on china. this isn't the right way to go. >> neil: maybe there's a method to this that you're not seeing or i'm not seeing, that the president hoping to get these countries of mexico and canada, europe, back to the table with something. what do you think? >> i hope that's the case. from the folks that i speak to in the administration and also in the government and europe and canada and mexico, that doesn't seem to be the case. they are pushing hard to finish the nafta negotiation. that is quite good. it would be really worrying if our brinksmanship on trade in
1:08 pm
the u.s. helped elect the leftist in mexico. >> we lost about 251 points here. the market started cascading as soon as this was official. that the administration wasn't going to go past this extension and deadline. you saw the response here. we should stress for steel makers in this country, they were doing fine. they were one of the few sectors as a group that was up smartly today. market watcher, heather, is here with us what do you think? >> the markets could have been down more than they are. this was a shock to canada and mexico and the european union. it's no shock that these tariffs are imposed overall as they were announced march 8. industrials were getting slammed today. boeing and caterpillar, two big players in that space.
1:09 pm
i think the markets are keeping an eye on industrials to really know what direction trade will move in. it has an impact on the market. i'm surprised we're only down 251. >> neil: yeah, i was, too. we're five months into this year. may did see an uptick. we're still a wash on this year. we're still flat. what do you make of that? >> we're still flat on the stock market because the market doesn't know what the strategic long-term plan will be on trade as well as the federal reserve. inflation. signs of inflation heating up that can bring the markets down because interest rates may rise in the end. the fact that we're still flat is a good thing. gdp is 2.2% is hanging in there and consumer spending and confidence is high. the economy is doing fairly well. look, on the backs of two years
1:10 pm
since the president was allotted, a lot of gains in the market. up over 30% across the board. so the fact that we're hanging in there and flat this year is not a bad thing. >> neil: do you worry about this trade back and forth and whether it boomerangs here, whatever justifications the president might have, a lot of people agree, if nothing else comes of this draw marks it's waking up people. a lot of countries do rig events, particularly the chinese from their currency, the economy and more. it could blow up in the president's face right ahead of the mid-term elections what do you think? >> i think most economists will say that they're not in favor of these tariffs across the board. it's very confusing for the average american to know what the result of this be. will prices increase on cars or will we come back to the table with our allies and negotiate a better deal on nafta or better deal on reducing our trade
1:11 pm
deficit. it's $800 billion a year. that's unsustainable. the u.s. trade team is sitting at the table and they're going to try to solve that. it's going to take time. at least someone is trying. >> neil: thanks, heather. too early to tell. it was a good month. a good month with stocks even with the final sell-off. as heather pointed out, since the beginning 0 the year we're essentially flat. meantime, we're getting more details on james comey's firing at the fbi. what is interesting is who wrote about it and got into it. after this. liberty mutual stood with me when this guy got a flat tire in the middle of the night, so he got home safe. yeah, my dad says our insurance doesn't have that. what?! you can leave worry behind when liberty stands with you™. liberty mutual insurance.
1:12 pm
1:13 pm
1:14 pm
>> neil: you know, he's been out of the fbi for a while now. former number 2 there, andy mccabe still seems to make a lot of news just the same even though he's been brought up for lying under oath, which could land you in the slammer for a long time if criminal proceedings were to move forward
1:15 pm
here. now he had a memo detailing the comey firing. why should he get credence on what we know about mr. mccabe, whether you're on the left or right, he's done a lot of lying. >> he has. for an objective source, several objective sources, jeff sessions, rod rosenstein, saying that mccabe lacks candor, that's the legal speak for he's lying. if he lied once, he will lie again. what is fascinating, this particular memo, we have no idea not only what is contained in it but whether or not it was c contemporaneously written. if we're dealing in a court of law, no judge would say this is credible ed. but we're dealing in the court of the public opinion.
1:16 pm
the jury are the electorate of the mid-terms and eventually the 2020 people that are going to be looking at voting again for president trump. when we're in the court of public opinion, the rules of evidence don't apply. that's what we're seeing from the mainstream media here. taking evidence that we can't really rely on, not only from mccabe's lack of credibility but lack of information and they're running wild with speculation. >> including what is in it. what we do know is that bob mueller has been apprised of it and has it. i'm wondering if it it will have any effect on anything he does, as if there it would be some manipulation behind the comey firing on what the media seems to be pouncing on the possibility of the president trying to obstruct something. what do you think? >> that's a possibility. the investigation stage, we don't know. if we're dealing with obstruction, mccabe is looking at his own criminal proceedings
1:17 pm
here. if this got to indictment, we would be looking at a lot more known factors. we're dealing with a memo that is highly speculative. at this point, i don't think it changes the legal analysis. if congress really wants to know the truth and if truth is really what we're seeking here, congress should be the one to appoint a special counsel with a much more particularized mandate. >> neil: good luck with that. we're running out of lawyers. let me ask your thoughts on what the president was once again saying about jeff sessions, his attorney general. if he had to do it over again, he wouldn't pick him. that's not new. the fact that he rumbles about that. what do you make of that? and jeff sessions in his job hearing that his chief doesn't flip over him. >> right. all of those appointments serve at the pleasure of the president. this is an interesting tie-in
1:18 pm
that the constitution and article 2 which governs the executive branch doesn't speak to the hiring and firing ability of the executive branch. >> neil: does he want him to quit? i get the feeling like he would make it so miserable, he would quit. but then he fears that session isn't quitting and if he were, others might leave too and the president doesn't want that before a mid-term? what do you think? >> i think the president is distancing himself from jeff sessions. if there were a private conversation to ask him to resign, he should. >> neil: i can't imagine given all the public scolding that he doesn't work in a vacuum -- >> i think you're right that he probably won't ask him to resign and this may be putting twitter pressure on him to see if he will just take the hint and move
1:19 pm
on. but he's remained firm and there's great people in the justice department that are serving the administration well. it will be interesting to see how this plays out. >> neil: i'd be remiss if i didn't mention, the president considering pardons for former governor blagojevich, martha stewart. what is going on here? >> i think this is a great thing that president trump is doing. as a former prosecutor and criminal defense attorney, the fact that a conservative president is taking a look at criminal justice reform. he's taking a look at his power in the executive to be the check on the judiciary and actually issue pardons signals a great issue that can bridge the aisle. i applaud the president for taking a look at this. whether or not we all individually agree with the pardons, the fact that he's looking at it and it's not an as i leave office thing. >> neil: thanks very much.
1:20 pm
we'll continue to explore this. this is something that the president has thrown out that he would look at pardons for these individuals. the question is why and why these two now. we'll see. more after this. udential asked : how much money do you think you'll need in retirement? then we found out how many years that money would last them. how long do you think we'll keep -- oooooohhh! you stopped! you're gonna leave me back here at year 9? how did this happen? it turned out, a lot of people fell short, of even the average length of retirement. we have to think about not when we expect to live to, but when we could live to. let's plan for income that lasts all our years in retirement. prudential. bring your challenges.
1:21 pm
1:22 pm
1:23 pm
>> neil: you know, anything is possible in las vegas. the city of the heat right now has a team in the stanley cup. so that alone is amazing. so we'll see how those battles go back and forth. in the middle of all of that, a possible casino worker's strike that could affect upwards of 50,000. the latest on that. mayor, good to have you here. thanks for coming. >> thanks, neil. it's good to hear your voice again. >> neil: same here. let me ask you about some of these casinos and unions
1:24 pm
negotiating the pay raises for workers. how likely you think a strike is. this is the time of year in vegas. what is going on? >> well, you know, as you so well know, this is the entertainment capitol. it will settle. i'm not sure what the numbers will be. it's a five-year contract. i believe hopefully the hotels will work with the union employees to give them some kind of technological training. that's very important in this issue. i don't think it's going to happen. the last major culinary strike was in 1984 when we were a town less than 500,000. now we're 2.3 million with 43 million visitors coming in to town every year. so i think it will settle. >> neil: if it were to come to fruition, we could the days away from the first, you know,
1:25 pm
citywide strike in decades. how likely you think that is? >> you know, i really -- because we depend on everything that we do here on the diversity of our community and on the comradery of everybody that loves here, i think it will settle. i'm not quite sure on the numbers because i haven't been included in them. we have two major players, mgm resorts and caesars entertainment that together probably own more than a dozen of the resort properties. so you know, these are the people that live here. i feel for them and understand and believe in their asks, but again, too, this is their hometown and we have to get things going. this is a popular place to be right now. >> neil: obviously. that's what i was going to ask. a place that's seen a big economic turn around. a lot of people are surprised
1:26 pm
after the shooting last year, the town would right itself again. it has. i'm wondering whether something like this, just hearing about it, chases individuals away and they think maybe not vegas right now. >> you know, it's one individual. we're seeing it all over the world. seeing it all over the country. it's like trying to put your finger in a dam to stop the water from coming through. it's going to pop out somewhere else. you can't imagine who has the sickness that they have or the notoriety. these are individual people that really are creating a problem for people who just want to live and have their normal life. these are issues. absolutely not here in las vegas. i think we know, we certainly -- it was a tragedy. they're sort of a theory of
1:27 pm
spirit now through our vegas golden knights. it's sort of engalvanizing and pulling everybody back up. >> neil: now we're learning the shooter in that particular incident, mayor, was telling folks what he was planning to do and sort of piecing together -- this wouldn't be the first shooter telegraphing his intentions. what do you make of that? >> i'm looking at the students. these students around the country. whether they have been bullied or they're a bully or they're a dropout. a lot of this is all about the media attention and during that tragic time which we continue to deal with. i have yet to mention the shooter's name here or have anything to say about him because it's about the 58 people we lost. all of those people that were wounded. the wonderful first responders and life as it is today. something has to be done. the family needs to be fixed.
1:28 pm
young people need to learn how to tolerate each other and identify for help. students seem to be having problems. we need to galvanize and get young people involved. it's not about the guns. it's really about these young people that have issues and don't know how to handle it because they don't know how to talk with each other anymore. a lot of it has to do with what they're fingers are doing all the talking. >> neil: could be a lot to that. the city changes and people are leery of more outdoor events post this incident. there's fewer even offered now in your city. >> you know, what we've done, we put up these bollards for people in cars. you see that all over the world. the cars taking out people. so it's not one incident. as i've told the conference of mayors again and again, it's not if somebody will happen. you need to be prepared.
1:29 pm
you need to have funds available so you can appropriately attend to whatever is happening in your community. we need every one of us, we need every child, we need parents to start parenting again. really keep an eye on their children and really understand where they are. then if metro law enforcement everywhere says see something say something. you don't want to castigate kids and people. you just want to make this work and get us back where we belong. this community has been simply phenomenal. this is a family of people that live in southern nevada that are so strong and so dedicated to each other. i think it's just done nothing but pull us together. it's wonderful, as i mentioned before to have something as fabulous as a new franchise in the finals of the stanley cup. >> neil: one of the hottest cities. i mean, actually physically hot cities and a hockey team that is
1:30 pm
thriving like this is amazing. mayor, thanks very much. very good seeing you. >> thank you so much for having us. >> neil: all right. meantime, i want to draw a reference point to you. "house of cards" versus "roseanne." think of those two shows after this. ah. red lobster's lobster & shrimp summerfest is back! get all the lobster and shrimp you crave, together in so many new ways. there's new cedar plank seafood bake. tender maine lobster and shrimp, cedar roasted to perfection. or new caribbean lobster and shrimp. sweet pineapple salsa on grilled rock lobster, paired with jumbo coconut shrimp. and wait. there's lobster & shrimp overboard! it's a seafood party on a plate. so hurry in. 'cause lobster & shrimp summerfest won't last.
1:31 pm
and it's also a story mail aabout people and while we make more e-commerce deliveries to homes than anyone else in the country, we never forget... that your business is our business the united states postal service. priority: you
1:32 pm
>> neil: "roseanne" without roseanne in don't laugh. the "house of cards" is back without its star.
1:33 pm
it can happen. what happens now? we're all over it in 60 seconds. so, i have this recurring dream. i'm 85 years old in a job where i have to wear a giant hot dog suit. what? where's that coming from? i don't know. i started my 401k early, i diversified... i'm not a big spender. sounds like you're doing a lot. but i still feel like i'm not gonna have enough for retirement. like there's something else i should be doing. with the right conversation, you might find you're doing okay. so, no hot dog suit? not unless you want to.
1:34 pm
no. schedule a complimentary goal planning session today with td ameritrade®. >> neil: all right. roseanne is promising to fight back. i don't know what that means. i know that the show features her name, "roseanne," is cancelled. it's over. finished. but what if another network wants to pick it up or someone else says, we can make this work. before you laugh and dismiss what i'm saying, how can it go on without roseanne? keep in mind that kevin spacey is no more in the show "house of cards," that netflix series is returning without him one last season. a lot of episodes without him. there's a background to this. democratic strategist, jessica tarlov on that. lawrence jones is here. what do you think of that possibility? the show must go on without its star. >> i think that would be the right thing to do.
1:35 pm
it's amazing that someone can be so selfish to go on social media and not think about the consequences not only for herself but the rest of her cast mates, the crew. i think that's the best solution right now. americans should support the show to say, you know, when people are hateful, we won't support them but we'll support others. >> neil: jessica, there is precedent. like "house of cards." issues where a hey you're figure goes. not sometimes over controversy but the show does go on in another form. not always successfully. what do you make of that? >> it happens with "house of cards." kevin spacey as well. they replaced him in "all the money in the world" the movie about to come out, which i think did okay. at the end of the day, i agree with lawrence. it's about the people left behind here. hard working people that have been with the show for decades. a lot of original cast and crew
1:36 pm
here. undeniably selfish for roseanne to do this and racist. would make this into a teachable moments that valley jarrett wants it to be and to find a way to move forward. i don't know what you do story line-wise or maybe you don't say anything. everybody knows what happened here. you talk about what happened to a family that is divided in certain ways and has conflicts and interesting plot lines and twists and have them moving forward here. i think that would be comfortable if they can sort it out. i know it's complicated. >> i wonder what happens to people like samantha bee, the woman that said the c word that is the word that you don't use. so it's going to be interesting to see how networks respond. is this a roseanne moment or the me too movement.
1:37 pm
>> obviously racism and vulgarity are different things here. we've seen an apology from samantha bee -- >> neil: what is the difference in racism, vulgarity. both obnoxious. >> yes. but it's different and more extreme. comedians are known to be vulgar. they're not known to be racist -- >> yeah, they are. >> neil: are you saying that because she's a conservative or -- >> i don't think that racism should be tolerated on any front. there's a lot of people that are vulgar that get away with it. i don't like it. chelsea clinton talk to eivanka about it. but racism, vulgarity. >> neil: offensive is offensive. there's no -- >> one -- >> neil: come on. we can't split hairs over stuff that is obnoxious. >> that was abc's call.
1:38 pm
i never said roseanne should lose her show. bob iger said these are not our values. get her out of here. that was the right decision. >> so what are the values then? that's the question, neil. companies have to decide what represents their value. is it just racism or is the saying things offensive to women. a lot of these networks that are progressive and liberal say that they have one viewpoint, but it is a different set of rules for conservatives as well as liberals. that needs to be an honest conversation. >> neil: you both argue your points very well, without getting vulgar and nasty, a little nasty. >> thanks, neil. >> neil: remember jimmy carter? one of the most consequential one-time presidents ever and he too was trying to drain the swamp. just differently than this president. a fascinating look at a presidency that maybe you don't know but an author that you should. (vo) i was born during the winter of '77.
1:39 pm
i first met james in 5th grade. we got married after college. and had twin boys. but then one night, a truck didn't stop. but thanks to our forester, neither did our story. and that's why we'll always drive a subaru. hesumatra reserve told in the time it takes to brew your cup. let's go to sumatra. where's sumatra? good question. this is win. and that's win's goat, adi. the coffee here is amazing. because the volcanic soil is amazing. making the coffee erupt with flavor. so we give farmers like win more plants. to grow more delicious coffee. that erupts with even more flavor. which helps provide for win's family. and adi the goat's family too. because his kids eat a lot. all, for a smoother tasting cup of coffee. green mountain coffee roasters. packed with goodness.
1:40 pm
1:41 pm
1:42 pm
>> neil: all right. can you be an effective one-term president? most people say no, that can't be. when it comes to jimmy carter, the consensus seems no, he's a better ex-president than an actual president. maybe because of his effects after he left the white house. after you read this book, i'm not so sure you'll come to that conclusion. the president carter, the white house years written by his top adviser. nearly 1,000 pages long. but it moves like a rocket. he was seamless writing and exhaustive detail. interviews with anybody and everybody and puts in perspective a presidency -- this is any opinion -- was looking to drain the swamp in a different way than the current white house. that's not to disparage either president. stuart, excellent back. thanks for taking the time. >> thanks for having me.
1:43 pm
>> neil: that was my read into it. jimmy carter was going to change the system, uproot it, rip it from its roots, drain the wamp in a different parlance. what do you think of that? >> in many ways, he did. for example, he campaigned on the theme, i want tell a lie immediately after the watergate scandal. he did. it was a scandal-free administration. but more important, he put in place ethic reforms. ethic laws of 78 which required disclosure of assets going in, limits gifts while in office. limiting the revolving door going out of office. the office of special counsel, the inspectors general, the foreign corrupt practices. all of these things were put in place and they're having an impact on this very day. we still have a special counsel, we have more transparency. so in many ways, he's accomplish
1:44 pm
had with he pledged to do in the post watergate era that he ran in. >> neil: i spoke to a white house intern. but in all seriousness, i do remember the earnestness of president carter and too detailed conscious and a little too in the weeds. i'm wondering given the fact that ronald reagan was the opposite of that, a couple of clear goes agendas and focused on the big picture, the rap around jimmy carter is he did not and could not. what did you think of that? >> there's several categories of the is. inflation, iran, inexperience by himself in his georgia mafia and inner party warfare with the liberal wing. there was too much attention to detail and not setting priorities. that was occasioned that he didn't have a chief of staff to
1:45 pm
discipline the many things he wanted. the first year he sought welfare reform, the panama canals, tax cuts. he didn't set priorities when congress and tip o'neal and others begged him to do so. because he took so many things on, he accomplished a great deal. two independent surveys shows that congress passed 70% of the legislation just under the percentage of the legendary lyndon johnson, who was the first president i worked for. so there were problems with excessive attention to detail for not setting priorities. when you look at excessive attention to detail before making decisions and you look at what has happened since governing by 3 x 5 cards or otherwise, that's not a bad attribute in terms of making decisions. >> we look at presidencies in terms of what they get accomplished in the meantime. you're right to look back at human rights and other efforts that he took that might have
1:46 pm
paved the way for some big things that happened post his presidency. but familiar theme in your book is the fact that all of the fighting he had with his own party. he had the run of the house, the run of the table and fellow democrats didn't flip over to him. to a different extent, you can say the same thing about president trump who has an anxious relationship with fellow republicans and isn't afraid to turn on them what do you make of that comparison? a lot of people think if you're own party is running the show and you're going to have an easier time, it's the opposite for jimmy carter. >> the history is, neil, when your own candidate challenges an incumbent as reagan did against ford or ted kennedy did against carter, it divides that and paves the way for the opposition. why did that happen with ted and the liberal wing? it's because jimmy carter was a centrist. he was a fiscal conservative. he was progressive on race and
1:47 pm
poverty issues, but on fiscal issues at a time with high inflation and budget deficits, he tightened the budget and cut programs and the liberal wing didn't like that. when ted ran promising a health insurance program, which would have busted the bank, we came back with a major first phase program, which if it was enacted, we would be better off today. the liberal wing wanted all or nothing. so carter was a centrist. he was too liberal for the conservative southern base that helped get him elected and he was too conservative for the liberal wing which was a central also to his re-election. that is the labor liberal academic wing. so he fell in the cracks in between and that often happens with centrists. >> neil: he also oftentimes seemed overwhelmed. i don't know whether he envisioned the problems he would have. he picked paul volcker to head the federal reserve.
1:48 pm
i don't think he anticipated how aggressive he would be. he would raise interest rate as full points at a time. forget the quarter point. >> he did. and i think -- >> neil: did he anticipate that, knowing that would hurt him? >> yes. one of the great things -- we inherited high inflation. it got worse in our administration. with the iranian revolution and the cut off in oil, it went into the stratosphere. he said to it's point blank, neil, i've tried everything else, wage and price guidelines, anti-inflation. i'm going into an election to take the tough medicine that paul volcker has told me that he's going to do, which is tighten the money supply, squeeze inflation out, raise unemployment, raise interest rates and carter said, i know this may effect my re-election but i don't want my legacy to be this high inflation and i'm willing to lose if this is what it means. the ultimate beneficiary of that two years later was ronald
