tv   Your World With Neil Cavuto  FOX News  June 8, 2018 1:00pm-2:00pm PDT

1:00 pm
supporting it. should news break out, we'll break in because breaking news changes everything on fox news channel. hope you have a fantastic spring weekend. "your world" with cavuto starts right now. ♪ [shouting] >> burn, baby, burn. burn, baby, burn. >> neil: forget the protest outside is the real battle about to go down inside. welcome, everybody, i'm neil cavuto and so many summits so little time. annual hour from now the president is set to sit down with canadian prime minister justin trudy at the g-7 summit. they looked happier earlier for the so-called group photo. not so sure how they will be feeling a bit when they're just one-on-one alone. we're all over it all of this with kevin corke in quebec city where all of this is going down and rick leventhal on the protests now heating up. we begin with kevin. kevin, what does it look like in there. >> neil, very interesting. i'm glad you mentioned that because you know coming into
1:01 pm
the summit, some newspapers, including the "times," described the president as a bit of a black sheep of the family because of his sort of cantankerous nature before coming here. and so a lot of us are wondering what might that family photo look like? well, let me show you. okay, i will just say it this way. it looked fine on the surface, neil. a lot of smiles that you would well-imagine you would see in that sort of a photo. it still makes you wonder beneath the surface, was there tension there? obviously not a lot to draw from the picture itself. did i notice that canadian prime minister justin trudeau appeared to leave a little quickly why while the president and angela merkel pulled up the rear. the president did speak of macron meet with the french president briefly. he has been highly critical of president bush to level the playing field on trade. now before leaving washington for quebec, the president made this very clear. he has one word in mind when it comes to trade and that's reciprocity. >> if we're unable to make a deal, we will terminate
1:02 pm
nafta, we have a better deal. if we are unable to make a deal, we will be better off. right now, we are not going to live with the deals the way they are. european union treats us very unfairly. canada very unfairly. mexico very unfairly. with that being said, i think we will probably very easily make a deal. >> very easily make a deal. we're not sure exactly what the deal might look like. but just to give you a sense, neil, of what the president calls unfair trade, look at what he tweeted. canada charges the u.s. a 270% tariff on dairy products. they didn't tell you that, did they? not fair to our farmers. the coming up with trudy later on. give you a readout as soon as we get it. in the meantime the president is here and is expected to leave a little bit sooner than originally planned. looking forward to making its way to the sex summit you talked about. the one in singapore with north korea. neil? >> neil: thanks, buddy.
1:03 pm
thanks very much. >> yeah, that one. >> neil: now to what's going on outside in those protests or protesters. what's the latest? rick leventhal in quebec today. >> neil, we're outside the national assembly, which is completely encircled by police officers in riot gear. they have batons and shields and helmets all the way around the building. what you see here is some of those busies, those are been ferrying officers, swat teams around the city as needed. and a bunch of them probably a couple hundred officers at least just went into this park. many of them have now left. can you see some officers up on the hill there because a group of demonstrators are headed this way and they wanted to fend them off. the largest demonstration of the day was expected to be here at the national assembly. it was a small crowd. and just beyond us there, neil, that's the entrance to the old city. that's where many of the shop owners boarded up in anticipation of violence and so far fortunately we haven't seen it there was an incident this morning where a group of protesters blocked a highway. there was a standoff with police in riot gear at that
1:04 pm
location. some of them burned couches. there were chants. and so on. eventually, that crowd was dispersed after a couple of people were arrested. last night we were witness to a very large demonstration or larger, perhaps 800 to 1,000 people who marched from a park about a mile and a half over to this area next to the national assembly. it was peaceful for the most part. a lot of chanting. some of them were wearing masks or bandannas covering their faces. and then they did set fires or set off flares when they got to the street and there were a couple of arrests last night as well. today, pretty calm. nothing like we saw here, neil, in 2001 during the summit of the americas when there were 30 to 50,000. i was here witnessing them throwing bricks at officers, smashing windows doing millions of dollars in damages. there were hundreds of arrests in 2001. this time around, neil, a much calmer scene so far. largely it seems, in part,
1:05 pm
to the fact that the summit is actually 88 miles northeast of quebec city and also there just aren't as many protesters here in quebec city this time around. neil? >> neil: that's interesting. rick, thank you very much. my friend, rick leventhal. so, the president in the middle of this. sort of like a g-7 or what they are calling a g-6 plus one with united states being the odd man out and the target of a lot of criticism from colleagues who say he is going too far putting on tariffs or threatening to. his friends. let's get the read from the former state department official anna manuel. good to have you back. >> thank you. >> neil: i didn't realize, this you know this better. the president routinely has problems with our friends and more pointedly the canadians taking them to the world trade organization or other entities because they don't play fair. barack obama, quite a few times, when it came to everything from lumber to, you know, american wine makers who felt that they were not getting a fair
1:06 pm
shake selling their product in canada, british columbia more to the point. what make makes makes this enpae different. >> you are absolutely right, neil. i would say everyone needs friends, including a powerful country like the united states. so when we have disputes with our allies and friends as we often do, you keep them quiet and behind the scenes and you don't let them explode out into public the way this has happened. we should be working with our allies to push back against the biggest china rather than picking a fight with them. >> neil: you know, a lot of these cozy trade deals that some of these countries have with us, including canada, including mexico, including many of the european union countries, these ar have evolved over decades as have you reminded me in the past and participants in these meetings probably don't know the details. but they have happened. this president, unlike his predecessors, maybe unwisely unlike his predder i predecessos
1:07 pm
giving him a microphone. what are they urging him to take? >> there has certainly been protectionism both by the europeans and by the canadians. we in the u.s. have been guilty of it to protect some of our industries as well. i think the wto is still the number one body to go through and then private, quiet, behind the scenes negotiations. you can be tough, you just don't let it spill out in public, because it makes us look bad and it makes us, the united states, the odd man out when actually china should be the odd man out. >> neil: do you think there is a med to this though on the part of the president, anja, that he is sending as much a message to the chinese look at how i get tough with my friends, just take a gander how i will treat you. >> i don't want to speculate on what the president's thinking is. but i think the message he is sending in this case in particular is not very helpful. and you can see that by the
1:08 pm
republican senators getting worried. senator corker has introduced legislation that would get congress involved on the steel and aluminum tariffs. other republican senators this week urging the president to ratchet down the rhetoric, the angry rhetoric against our closest friends in the world. >> neil: what if it works, anja i know unusual and/or though docks approach. if he can get the other side to give us something to avoid those tariffs in the first place and they never have to come to pass, what would you think of that? >> i hope it works. but i think having dealt a lot with europeans and the canadians, including my time at the state department what works best usually is to have a quiet conversation behind the scenes with friends. >> neil: anja, there is nothing quiet about this president or quiet about his approach. but he will argue. >> you are absolutely right.
1:09 pm
>> neil: the numbers seem to bear it out, whatever he is doing is working. what do you think? >> the economy is certainly doing well. i think the jury is very much out on trade and whether we're actually going to get better trade deals. i know on nafta, for example, some substantial progress has been made that agreement does have to be updated. we do need protections for u.s. workers. but there is also at some point where you need to have a little give and take rather than just blowing the whole thing up. so i hope we can get back to those more constructive conversations. >> neil: all right. anja, very good getting your read on this. let's hope cooler heads prevail and we don't dom a trade war with each other o. anja manuel, this idea about nafta and all there was another very popular candidate you might recall who was railing against the original nafta deal that was crafted under a democratic president. and this was democratic candidate barack obama who
1:10 pm
said that if he ever came to power he would change it and fast. and align it more closely with america interests and even faster. that was then. what's the big deal and the difference now? let's get the read from historian doug reed. i forget that many an american president has had problems with our neighbors and best friends. they have all expressed it differently, but they have all expressed it. right? >> yeah. that's very true. a lot of people compare america and canada as a marriage. it's more like cousins. and we can fight. i mean, in 1971, richard nixon used language i can't use on television. he was referring to pierre trudeau as a pompous, you know what. there were big differences then and it was over trade. it's always over money. our money to clean up the environment. our money to provide for defense. our money to help their farmers and help their people get jobs.
1:11 pm
and so trump is trying to realign that and then you will remember jon, he actually publicly against george w. bush, he publicly said that 9/11 was our fault, our foreign policy. >> neil: i remember that yeah. >> it was a bitter moment. so, this is nothing new with trump. >> neil: what is interesting, this president's response to all of that now, of course, you were mentioning pierre trudeau the father of justin trudeau. famous liberal of his time and mere opposite of richard nixon, as you also point out. how much does politics play into this? i was surprised the number of beefs and problems that president obama had with the canadians and in petitioning the wto. i think no fewer than 34, 36 times during his presidency. he won a lot of those battles at the wto. and people smarted from that because he did go after canada a lot of the time.
1:12 pm
but, by gones were by gones or they were settled in the president wants favor, so they could argue well, well we went through the normal channels. our president is not going through the normal channels but he argues the normal channels rip us off. how does that play? >> yeah. well, it plays big. and there was a big difference with obama, you are right there. was also the keystone xl pipeline. that was devastating to canada. that was obama's decision. but obama had an advantage. had the media backing him up. today donald trump has the media, i wouldn't call it anti-american but certainly say it's anti-trump. so trudeau and our french allies, our british allies, they smell it. they know it they know that if they attack the united states and our policies, the american media will side with them against trump. that's a big difference. and i have to say one thing, neil, you brought up the politics of it. if you study canada and its history, there has always been a very strong element of people who are
1:13 pm
anti-american. the funny part about it is americans love canadians. and these particular canadians, it just drives them up the wall. they say you're so dumb you don't even know we don't like you. [laughter] >> petition like trudeau and others in the past can always punch that button and know they will get a response from some in the canadian electorate who just don't like the americans. >> neil: most of them are localized around the quebec and french speaking areas, think, right always good seeing you my friend. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> neil: doug wead good read on things. they either love or hate us. in this particular fight the foreign press has not been kind to donald trump. ahead of this, reason why he is leaving early, that one in singapore. that's the one that's getting all the world's attention. after this.
1:14 pm
hey! we didn't have a homeowners claim last year so allstate is giving us money back on our bill. well, that seems fair. we didn't use it. wish we got money back on gym memberships. get money back hilarious. with claim-free rewards. switching to allstate is worth it.

kneel know i don't know if this is exactly worthy of a fox news alert. but a fox news poll that really isn't too jolting but could be a sort of a wind at the president's back two out of three of americans support summit is he going to be having with kim jong un. the u.s. and north korea, if they actually come away from this with something, even if it doesn't appear to be high-popping progress but something, then it could change everything. now, of course, what would something be? the author of the operator, former navy seal rob o'neill with me. rob, good to have you. >> thanks for having me, neil. >> neil: one ever the common phrases we hear, rob is denuclearization of the korean peninsula. both sides agree that's an integral issue. we have very big differences on the timetable. we want it fast. the north koreans not so fast. >> there are so many arguments with that. a lot of people are saying that kim jong un is sort of playing along, knowing that
1:18 pm
president trump could be out in a few years, seven years at the most. and then he could play the next administration, which is grandfathered kim -- >> neil: how likely do you think that is. >> i don't think it is. i think with a lot of the technology coming up, kim jong un wants to maintain power. the way he maintains power is without an invasion of his country. he really wants to avoid an invasion. that was one of the things that he was saying in the demilitarized zone and in south korea if we can guarantee the u.s. will not invade which we don't have interest in doing, he gets to sort of maintain power and that's a whole different ball of wax once they get the technology in there if he gets to keep power with nukes. he knows that is a deterrent. if he can get rid of them, hopefully releasing some of the -- some of the pressure of the economic sanctions, he gets more stuff in there, his people, not that he really cares about his people, if they get fed, that, again, will will come with him maintaining power. just to get a face to face with the leader of the free world which no one in north korea ever has, that's a step in the right direction.
1:19 pm
can he hear face to face, along with an invite to mar-a-lago or the white house. he wants to be legitimized and keep his power. this is definitely a step in the right direction. even if nothing comes out of it, they have already started negotiating once they called it off and put it back on, president trump is going to leave the g-7 summit tomorrow to get there early. this is great step in foreign policy. >> neil: you never like being called a hero the takedown of usama bin laden. you categorize that in my book. how would you feel if we do normalize relations and down the road there is kim jong un at the white house with the president of the united states? >> it's a tough one. i mean president trump has invited vladimir putin, too. a lot of people on the left are saying, you know, you bring -- you know, he is a guy that tortures his own people. >> neil: we can't pick and choose the leaders much the countries he wants to go to. >> look at some of the people who call our allies i would rather be stabbed in the front than the back. that's kind of what it is. maybe he comes around. look at pakistan. okay, we give them millions and millions, hundreds of
1:20 pm
millions in aid. they hid bin laden on us. they hide the haqqani network. do we just ignore? >> neil: fdr couldn't pick and choose the leader of russia which he was talking to stalin. >> they were calling him uncle joe at the time. he turned out not to be a great guy. he killed millions of people. >> neil: leaving that out of the argument here. the north korean needs something out of it. a lot more than we do. >> yeah. >> neil: what do we offer in exchange that doesn't look like we ever caving and that was the wrap against bill clinton. not against president trump. >> we are offering relief. he likes his money. he wants to be seen as a world leader. he loves prestige. it seems to me, even i said he was crazy before on television. he might not be as crazy as we thought. but, you know, he wants to be will he legitimized and hopefully they see what kind of -- look at the wealth in seoul, south korea compared to pyongyang. they got a lot of that because of capitalism and cooperating with the world. there is a lot of good
1:21 pm
stuff. right now they are trading mainly with china and some with singapore which is why one of the many reasons why the summit is going to be in singapore. if they can trade with more people and not necessarily under the thumb of the chinese that could be in their interest. you have got to figure since the early 1950s people being lied to and his family are god and take a lot to bring them around. >> neil: could you unify the two? >> hopefully. >> neil: there would be no north or south korea, there would be one korea. >> he probably didn't imagine his grandson would be holding hands and skipping across the demilitarized zone with the leader of south korea. i mean, it's very interesting to say the least. and i'm looking forward to it. >> neil: all right. it is going to be pay per view watching. >> certainly. >> neil: thank you very much. rob o'neill, former navy seal the man who brought down usama bin laden. $100 trillion, by the way that's how much americans are worth right now. and it's never been that big. never been that high. so, how optimistic are you? why that number could change

surprising we are rallying into this meeting with north korea. this is a big week coming up next week. we are right at a critical level for the s&p and the dow. if we get over 26,000 in the dow. we are going to make new highs, i never thought that would happen this summer. let me just say if we make new highs in the next few months this summer you, that is so early and unexpected to me for the way the price looked in february when we fell. we will explode right up into the next presidential election for trump to get going and maybe reelected again. he might actually get reelected again if the market runs up like that. >> neil: you know, gary b. i'm wondering, all the years i have known you and talked to you, you know, have you talked about meltdowns and melt ups and a lot of people looking at what's been happening of late. melt-up we keep climbing up and up and up. warren buffet thought we were in the sixth inning. >> neil: i thought a baseball game was nine innings, two third through it? >> that about feels right.

never was in government before. people when it comes up are going to say hey we don't want things to change. things are going maybe pretty good now. we don't want any change. >> neil: trade war, the prospect of that doesn't bother you. >> no. i don't think so. i don't like what he is doing with trade. i don't like no barriers. you want to dump your goods in here and we just give you bills with all presidents on them, i'm happy with that. but, that's not going to happen. i think trump, we talked about it just before we went on, he has a way of landing on his feet. is this some, you know, amazing genius negotiating strategy? who knows. but it tends to work out for the guy, i'm going to start giving him the benefit of the doubt. >> neil: did he bring to people's attention even those that didn't know there are a lot of countries that rig the game. >> it wasn't fair. he had to take a hard stance. if he didn't take a hard stance. ally kneel with canada? >> we are going to see what's going to happen. they need us just as much as we need them and that's the truth. >> the other thing i think he understands one thing.

it could be a terrific thing. i know i believe strongly in freedom of the press. i'm a big, big believer in freedom of the press. but i'm also a believer in classified information. >> neil: all right. well, the president talks about james wolfe, former senate staff indicted by the department of justice for lying to the fbi over intel leaks. and now we don't know who got those leaks and how many people shared those leaks. it's a soap opera here. late on all these developments. troy, this is the latest wrinkle and feed the narrative the president has long had that it's a rigged system and a rigged system going for him. what do you think of it? >> and it's also going to feed into arguments that there is a deep state of career people working in the government that are seeking to forward their own agenda. this is really unsettling because this is not just any senate staff. this is the guy that was director of security for the

1:39 pm
as campaign manager or anything having to do with the trump campaign or the election from 2016. and as far as them wanting to throw him in jail, that has to do with allegations from prosecutors that he was engaged in witness tampering while he has been out on pre-trial release. therefore, violating the terms of his bond, his own recognizance release. >> neil: all right. thank you very, very much. we will see how this all goes and sorts out. it could go thank you very much. >> thank you, neil. >> neil: i want to give you the numbers on partisan. five, five for one president, 63 for another president. those are partisa pardons undera president at this stage of his presidency. you probably think that the 63 refer to donald trump. you're wrong. they are ronald reagan at this point. the five for all the hall la hal

gerald ford. i know some his recent compatriots not so much. but they did make up for lost time in total the pardons as their presidents ensued. why does this president get the attention he does? >> i think there are two separate issues here. first is whether or not he is abusing the power in terms the number of pardons is he issuing or if he is commuting sentences in disproportionate manner. that's a separate issue than whether or not people disagree with the substance of maybe why he is pardoning people or the people who he is choosing to pardon in terms of obviously there has been a lot of controversy less so about alice johnson but about the sheriff from arizona in terms of his flouncing in the face of the judicial system and disregarding a court order. so, i don't think. >> neil: can i say that also though about marc rich. remember that famous pardon with bill clinton. you are right, depending on the time and place they can raise eyebrows. normally a lot of this
1:45 pm
sunked about up not all the time near the end of a presidency than the beginning. >> right. >> neil: the president has indicated this unique power that he has. he would like to address thousands of potential cases. even included muhammed ali but, of course, his family and the legal associates reminded him that the supreme court itself exonerated him. what do you make of that? >> right. well, what i make of it is this. we are in a day and time where everything our president does is being scrutinized. prior presidents since bill clinton basically since his administration and then through g.w. and obama's they have slowed their face they wait until like you said later in the presidency to start making these pardons because they are comfortably within their term. we are only 504 days in here. so you combine those factors and, yes, it seems like maybe this is a lot, but it's really not. it's more concerning like you said though, if he is talking about pardoning thousands of people. i don't have any issue with it as a criminal defense attorney because i actually
1:46 pm
have some names and president trump if you are watching i can give you names to that list client of mine ohio would like to see receive presidential pardons and certainly a lot of people who have been treated unfairly. i think it's scary to people and maybe rightfully so and maybe we pay attention to the fact that he has this now found power and is he like a kid in the candy shop and we don't want it to be that we are just throwing around pardons because we can we want it to have meaning and significance and we want it to be fair. >> neil: in this latest case of this woman who was in jail for so long on a drug charge, do you think that was a justifiable release commutation? >> absolutely, absolutely where i am with it if we are going to have thousands of people pardoned and her sentence was commuted. she wasn't given a full pardon. the difference is her sentence was mitigated and shortened. she is not a convicted felon at this point. she is still a convicted felon. a pardon is a different thing. you don't have to be convicted of a crime to receive a pardon. a pardon gives you immunity
1:47 pm
from any further punishment as a result of a presidential punishment. i would love to see people like alice johnson or people in her position receive pardons or commutations of their sentence. but if it's going to be other things, again, we will see how it plays out. but it's concerning. >> neil: yeah. we have started something here. whitney bowen have a great weekend. thank you very much. >> thanks, neil. you too. >> neil: remember when someone was jumping ugly with the president over tweeting so many nasty things? now the people upset at him are tweeting some very nasty things after this. why is dark magic so spell-bindingly good? it's a bold blend of coffee with rich flavors of uganda, sumatra, colombia and other parts of south america. like these mountains, each amazing on their own.

1:52 pm
germany, their economy. so i don't care slonks our presidenaslong as our presidents looking out for ourselves. >> no one should be surprised by this because donald trump has been all over the place on a lot of issues. he has been consistent on tariffs. shouldn't be surprised he is doing. this it doesn't matter what i think and what macron or justin trudeau thinks. he is not going to change his mind. >> neil: do you this with your friends. >> i think this is pat who promised to bring his business style to the white house. this is where he is most comfortable. i think he likes to do. this only problem here in sort of the frequent, you free market you can walk away from the deal find another company to do the deal with. you can't say i'm going to find another canada to deal with right now. the challenge here is this is a different kind of deal that he is doing with countries rather than with companies. but i think that that's just the way he likes to run things. >> neil: how about we spread ourselves too thin? we seem to fight with everybody. >> there is always that one person who wants to go at everybody. >> if they have a valid point. in fact, if the fax back up

james. and i didn't invite steph curry. we are not going to invite either team. but we have other teams that are coming. my attitude, if they want to be here, it's the greatest place on earth. i'm here. if they don't want to be here, i don't want them. >> neil: what do you think of that? >> you know, i agree with the president on a lot of things. here i don't think the whole team should be penel penalized or punished just because of a couple players. last year when the astros won bell and cor. -- just because have you lebron and steph curry. because because you don't agree with the president doesn't mean you don't respect the office of the president. >> neil: hots fault is it. >> guilty by association. most outspoken people on the team saying these things and trump is going to take it to heart and then say you know what? no one is coming then. you ruined it for everybody. everybody out of the pool. >> he probably didn't want to deal with it i'm kind of
