3:01 am
when he does that thankfully, they are low tech attacks but this is what they have been doing lately. steve: keep an eye on what is happening in paris. yesterday was a big news day and ainsley was fortunate enough to be at the white house to talk to the president. ainsley: that's right. we went down there and sat outside of the rose garden and talked to him about the news of the day, paul manafort, jeff sessions. we talked about a lot of things. wide ranging issues. we will air the entire thing in its entirety. here is the president talking about cohen, manafort and jeff sessions. ainsley: mr. president, thank you so much for sitting down with me. how are you doing? >> i'm doing great. we had an incredible rally last knight in west virginia. it was beautiful. tremendous crowd. going to win a big race over there. i guess you could say that our numbers in winning whether it's for the senate or for congress or governor has been very good. ainsley: how is our country's first lady doing and how are your children? >> she is doing great. she is a terrific woman. she goes through a lot with
3:02 am
all of this publicity. she is a terrific woman. she is doing great. ainsley: how do you handle all of that? >> well, it's part of my life. my whole life has been this way. somebody said oh gee always such controversy. and, i don't know, i have had always had controversy in my life and i have always succeeded and i always whop. it was controversial when i ran and i won. and now the country is doing better than it's ever done. we have the best economy we have ever had in the history of our country. more jobs today, literally today, we have more jobs. more people working in the united states than ever before in the history of our country. black unemployment, asian unemployment, women unemployment hispanic unemployment, historic lows. it's been an amazing thing. unfortunately, the media never covers that they don't like to cover that kind of thing. they like to cover nonsense. ainsley: right. >> but it's one of those things. ainsley: speaking of, yesterday, huge news day. there is a lot breaking today as well. michael cohen.
3:03 am
tell me about your relationship with him. >> well, he was a lawyer for me for one of many, you know, they always say the lawyer and then they like to add the fixer. i don't know if he was a fixer. i don't know where that term came from. but, he has been a lawyer for me. didn't do big deals, did small deals. not somebody that was with me that much. they make it sound like i didn't live without him. i understood michael cohen very well. what turned out he wasn't a very good lawyer, frankly. but he was somebody that was probably with me for about 10 years. and i would see him sometimes. but when he i had big deals i had outside lawyers and inside lawyers too in addition to michael. i always found him to be a nice guy. ainsley: he said one story you didn't know anything about the payments. >> no. ainsley: now he is saying that you directed him to make these payments. did you direct him to make these payments? >> he made the deals. by the way, he pled to two counts which aren't a crime
3:04 am
which nobody understands. i watched a number of shows, sometimes you get good information by watching shows, those two counts aren't a crime. they weren't campaign finance. ainsley: did you know about the payments. >> later on i knew. later on. but you have to understand, ainsley, what he did and they weren't taken out of campaign finance. that's a big thing. that's a much bigger thing. did they come out of the campaign. they didn't come out of the campaign. they came from me. i tweeted about it i don't know if you know, but i tweeted about the payments. but, they didn't come out of campaign. in fact, my first question when i heard about it was did they come out of the campaign because that could be a little diesy. and they didn't come out of the campaign if you look at president obama he had a massive campaign violation but he had a attorney general and they viewed it differently. we have somebody that they seem to like to go after a
3:05 am
lot of republicans. but, he settled his very easily. in fact, i put that out fairly recently. so, obama had it. other people have it. almost everybody that runs for office has campaign violations but what michael cohen pled to weren't even campaign related. they weren't crimes. >> why is he doing that? >> great deal. he wases in another business totally unrelated to me where i guess there was fraud involved and loans and taxicabs and all sorts of things. noriega to do with me. had an outside business. he worked for me, you could really say it was more or less part time. he had other businesses. he had other clients. i'm not his only clients u and michael cohen had, i guess, a taxi business and somebody reported him for some things in his taxi business. and that's how this started. and they put the two counts of campaign violations in there but a lot of lawyers
3:06 am
on television and also lawyers that i have seen that they are not even crimes. ainsley: payments, if they are not illegal, then wife would he use that information for a plea deal? >> because he makes a better deal when he uses me. like everybody else u and one of the reasons i respect paul manafort so much is he went through that trial. you know, they make up stories. people make up stories. this whole thing about flipping, they call it i know all about flipping, 30, 40 years i have been watching flippers. everything is wonderful and then they get 10 years in jail and they flip on whoever the next highest one is or as high as you can go. it almost ought to be outlawed. it's not fair because five years like michael cohen or 10 years in jail because of a taxicab deal, he defrauded some bank. last two were tiny ones, campaign violations are considered not a big deal, frankly. but if somebody defrauded a
3:07 am
bank and he is going to get 10 years in jail or 20 years in jail but if you can say something bad about donald trump and you will go down to two years or three years, which is the deal he made, in all fairness to him, most people are going to do that. and i have senile it many times. i have had many friends involved in this stuff. it's called flipping and it almost ought to be illegal. you get 10 years in jail. but if you say bad things about somebody. if you make up stories, they just make up lies recommendation alan dershowitz said compose. they make up things and now they go from 10 years to they are a national hero. they have a statue erected in their honor. it's not a fair thing. but that's why he did it. he made a very good deal. for what he did. but i will tell you someone made a better deal awan, the it guy for schultz, congresswoman schultz.
3:08 am
he had all the information on democrats. he had all the information on everybody, he went to jail holding the hands of the justice department or the fbi. they sat there together. they were smiling and laughing. and he got nothing. and he stole money and he had more information on corruption of the democrats than anybody and they don't even have his computers and his servers. they just gave him nothing. you saw that it was on your show. they gave him nothing. nothing. ainsley: double standard? >> double standard? i mean, he was worse than anybody, in my opinion. he got nothing. he's a democrat. he got nothing. the reason he got nothing is because the dems are very strong in the justice department. i put an attorney general who never took control of the justice department. jeff seghtsdz. never took control of the justice department. it's sort of an incredible thing. we have this country going so well. mike pompeo is doing incredibly, all of my people, they are doing
3:09 am
incredibly. but the whole thing going on with justice and fbi, when you see strzok and his lover lisa page. when you see comey with all the lies that he has told. when you see mueller with the conflicts, he's so conflicted. comey is his best friend. he had a really nasty business transaction with me, which he never reported. i have been talking about he never reports it. i mean, you look at the bad things. he wanted the fbi job that christopher wray has. now christopher wray was recommended by rosenstein. the fbi -- i will tell you what if you took a poll in the fbi i will tell you one thing i would do very well. ainsley: are you considering pardoning paul manafort? >> i have great respect for what he has done in terms of what he has gone through. you know he worked for ronald reagan for years. he worked for bob dole. i guess his firm worked for
3:10 am
mccain. he worked for many, many people, many, many years. i would say what he did, some of the charges they threw against him, every consultants, every lobbyist in washington probably does. if you look at hillary clinton's person, you take a look at the people that work for hillary clinton, i mean, look at the crimes that clinton did. with the emails and she deletes 33,000 emails after she gets a subpoena from congress, and this justice department does nothing about it? and all of the other crimes that they have done. and they -- look at podesta. podesta was supposed to be manafort on steroids. they made him close up his firm. he was going to be indicted the next day, we heard. never happened. instead, they go after manafort. so, look, i didn't know manafort well. he wasn't with the campaign long, they got him on things totally unrelated to the campaign. by the way they got cohen on things totally unreality to the campaign. i'm not involved.
3:11 am
i wasn't charged with anything. people don't like to say that, i wasn't charged. but, when you look at the corruption on the other side and they refuse to look at anything. when you don't look at strzok where he said basically we're going to take out the president, the insurance policy and everything else. you look at lisa page, the two lovers back and forth with these horrible, these horrible texts. you look at the kind of talk going on about it's really a subversion. and our justice department doesn't do anything about it people say oh, but you appointed jeff sessions. i said i did but i really feel as long as this is going out i don't have to do this but i will stay uninvolved and maybe that's the best thing to do. ainsley: mr. president, a lot of people are frustrated. a lot of people are frustrated with the doj and jeff sessions. there are rumors you are going to fire him after the mid terms and rosenstein. they want these documents. they are wondering if you will use your power to get the documents released. >> at the right time i think i will have to do the
3:12 am
documents. yingts to, but i think i'm going to have to. there is such corruption before i got here. it's from before i got here. it's the obama administration you look at what happened? they're surveilled my campaign. it's very simple. the fisa report. ainsley: rosenstein signed the last fisa report. >> it bothers me. ainsley: will you fire him? will you fire sessions? >> as i said, i wanted to stay uninvolved. but when everybody sees what's going on in the justice department, i always put justice now with quotes. it's a very, very sad day. jeff sessions recused himself, which he shouldn't have done or he should have told me. even my enemies say that jeff sessions should have told you that he was going to recuse himself and then you wouldn't have put him in. he took the job and then he said i'm going to recuse myself i said what kind of a man is this? by the way, he was on the campaign. the only reason i gave him the job i felt loyalty. he weighs an original
3:13 am
supporter. he was on the campaign. he knows there was no collusion. and what's come out of manafort? no collusion. what's come out of michael cohen? no collusion. this is stuff that they got. how about with michael cohen, in all fairness to him, they raid his office at 6:00 in the morning? how about with manafort, they raid his home at like 5:00 in the morning, i think, on a weekend and his wife is in bed and they go in with guns? this isn't al capone. steve: okay. so you will have five more minutes here in about half an hour. ainsley: that's right. the big take away from that portion of it, he said the payout money he said it came from him. it didn't come from the campaign, so, therefore, it's not a campaign violation. also, he said he was never going to pardon paul manafort. it sounded like to me might be considering it. he didn't say yes, but he didn't say no. steve: he sounded like he was sympathetic toward paul manafort. we heard last night on
3:14 am
shannon's show that one of the jurors who spoke out was sympathetic towards paul manafort it should have been a tax audit. it shouldn't have been a trial. brian: thought the prosecution was lazy and bored and the defense could have done more for paul manafort but in the end they had some aspects. really good. part of the pressure on michael cohen, they will take down his wife, too. because she cosigned the tax returns. that's part of the reasons why he seems so broken with the president. ainsley: talk about mollie tibbetts, the democrats, do they want to impeach him, and nazi guard deportation. steve: thanks, ainsley. brand new information about that illegal immigrant who is charged with killing mollie tibbetts out in iowa. former homicide detective ted williams retraces mollie's steps. you will see him live next. you ready for this, junior? yeah, i think i can handle it. no pressure... ...that's just my favorite boat. boom.

special place as you know. you walk the halls and so many presidents and first ladies have walked those very halls and stood right there. that's outside of the oval office. brian: that's a unique place. i haven't seen an interview there. i love the fact very nice of the earth to give you a beautiful day. ainsley: i know. brian: it's perfect. ainsley: thank you, god. brian: very nice setup. i'm very grateful the president wanted to sit down and get the story straight about all the breaking news and headlines lately. we saw in the last clip we saw him talking about michael cohen and paul manafort and jeff sessions. now you are about to see his reaction mollie tibbetts and ice to deporting the nazi prison guard and will he be impeached in the democrats win. listen to this. ainsley: let's talk about immigration, mollie tibbetts another american killed by illegal alien, just adding fuel to this already controversial immigration subject that you have been outspoken about. what do you see sty those who disagree with your immigration plans?

>> mollie is this beautiful young girl, hot father -- i watched the father, he kept saying i sort of doubted it was going to happen, she is coming back. she just left but she is coming back and i say that's called hope. and it's a beautiful thing in a way. it's hope. but now there is no hope. she was killed by a horrible person that came in from mexico. illegally here. found by ice. our great ice, who is abused by the democrats and the left and without them you might not be sitting here so comfortably right now. ainsley: um-huh. >> i just think it's so sad. we're building the wall. it's already started. we have spent 3.2 billion on it. we are asking for five billion for this year's funding. the wall is going up. a lot of people don't know it. i would like to build it even faster, but dealing with the democrats is very tough. the immigration laws are
3:36 am
horrible. we're doing incredible job. we are doing record breaking job. but we have bad laws. when you have bad laws you can do good but you could do better if you had good laws. change but we have to elect more republicans. ainsley: nazi guard living here in new york in n. queens. ice officials deported him. why was that important for you? that was on your agenda, has been since the beginning. >> i have a lot of jewish friends who said to me about this man living in queens. i grew up in queens. that's where i grew up. and he was a man not just a prison guard, he was a prison guard that supervised the killing of many, many jews. many, many jews. has lived here for decades. and he walks the street of jackson heights. i know jackson heights very well. i walk the same streets. and he -- i don't know, people came up to me and from the beginning of the campaign they tell me about this nazi who lived in who walks the street like he owns the place. now he is an old man, 95 years old. and the obama administration

3:38 am
the mid terms, hard to believe. if the democrats take back power, do you believe they will try to impeach you? >> well, you know, i guess it says something like high crimes and all -- i don't know how you can impeach somebody who has done a great job. i will tell you what, if i ever got impeached, i think the market would crash. i think everybody would be very poor because without this thinking, you would see -- you would see numbers that you wouldn't believe in reverse. if hillary clinton got elected. instead of 4.1 up and each point is $3.5 million and 10 million jobs. when i took it over it was at 1. and it was going to be down -- it was going down. i freed up, i got rid you have regulations. the tax cut was a tremendous thing. but even before the tax cut, right from first day i got rid of regulation, i approved the pipelines, 48,000 jobs. but, i did a lot of things. had hillary and the

democrats gotten in. had she been president, you would have had negative growth. we picked up $10 trillion in worth. china, by the way, has gone down $15 trillion, okay? and when i came, in china was a dom nantz force. now, they like me very much. i get along great with president xi. but i said we can no longer give you 500 billion a year on bad trade deals and you see what's happened over the last 90 days. the reason i even waited was because of north korea. i wanted china's help on north korea otherwise i would have done it sooner. china has been a big help on north korea. i said i have to get going now on trade. last year china made 570 -- we had a deficit with china $517 billion. no not going to happen anymore. steve: you were lucky enough to get a 22-minute interview. we are showing you the interview, for the most part in big chunks so you see everything. ainsley: that's right. we did not edit it so

everything the president sat down and told me you are going to see this morning. brian: you caught um with him on a day around 4:00 in the afternoon the day prior paul manafort's campaign manager, michael cohen, a long-time attorney for 10 years. ainsley: mollie tibbetts. brian: all happens at one time. with the michael cohen situation it's still unholding. got to be disconcerning. able to concentrate through. to think about the things michael cohen knows about the organization and the campaign and the president and to think that he has gone all lanny davis which is basically hillary clinton is -- must be really unnerving. ainsley: i'm sure. we got his reaction to all of that news. i was so grateful that he sat down with us after such a crazy news day so we could hear his side of the story. we also asked him is the press the enemy of the people? that's come up in the next chunk. steve: and he is going to actually give himself a grade, right? ainsley: that's right. steve: you will be surprised to here what that is. more of anxiously's exclusive interview with the president of the united

company on fox business. so, stuart, here's this legendary coffee shop that we have seen in sex in the city that tv show. she loved it. but the policy -- policies she espouses are the ones that essentially closed it down. >> this is a real life example of what happens, what damage can accompany our society whether you have got $15 an hour minimum wage. going to be fewer jobs and this is a classic example of that. ms. ocasio-cortez went back to the coffee shop, she got back there to see her old friends and found out it's about to close. why is it about to close? because it's going to $15 an hour minimum wage. the manager can't afford to run that business with that kind of pricing structure for his labor. it's ironic, isn't it, that alexandria ocasio-cortez supports $15 an hour minimum wage, goes back to where she
3:46 am
was started out in life in the workplace and finds it's closing because of the policies she supports. that's irony any. >> wait a minute that i love is closing because of. this is what the coffee shop said about why they are closing. the times have changed in our industry. the rents are very high and now the minimum wage is going up and we have a huge number of employees. >> by the way, that manager is going to be on my show tomorrow. we have already spoken to him. and he is getting flack on social media because of what he is doing. steve: you know, over the last six months we have heard so much about universal living wage. they tried the minimum wage out in portland, oregon where they mandated everybody in restaurants get a certain amount, which had never been the case, and it has completely boomer ranged on them. >> forgive me for using strong language but i think this is a tragedy. we will never know how many thousands or millions of youngsters do not get their

governor has been very good. ainsley: how is our country's first lady doing and how are your children. >> she is doing great. she is a terrific woman. she goes through a lot with all this publicity but she is a terrific woman. she is doing great. ainsley: how do you handle all of that? >> well, it's part of my life. i guess my whole life has been this way. somebody said oh, gee, this is always such controversy. and i don't know, i have always had controversy in my life. and i have always succeeded. i have always won. it was controversial when i ran and i won and now the country is doing better than it's ever done. we have the best economy we have ever had. in the history of our country. more jobs today, literally today we have more jobs, more people working in the united states than ever before in the history of our country. black unemployment, asian unemployment. women unemployment. hispanic unemployment. historic lows. it's been an amazing thing. and, you know, unfortunately live the media never coforts cos
4:03 am
that they don't like to cover that type of thing. they like to cover nonsense. it's one of those things. ainsley: speaking of, yesterday, huge news day. a lot breaking today as well. michael cohen, tell me about your relationship with him. >> well, he was a lawyer for me for one of many, you know, they always say the lawyer and then they like to add the fixer. well, i don't know if he is a fixer. i don't know where that term came from. but, he has been a lawyer for me. didn't do big deals. did small deals. not somebody that was with me that much. you know, they make it sound like i didn't live without him. i stud michael cohen very well. he -- turned out he wasn't a very good lawyer, frankly, but he was somebody that was probably with me for about 10 years. i would see him sometimes. when i had deals, i had outside lawyers and i have a lot of inside lawyers, too, in addition to michael. i always found him to be a nice guy. ainsley: he said one story said you didn't know anything about the payments. now he is saying that you directed him to make these
4:04 am
payments. did you direct him to make the payments? >> he made the deals. he made the deals. by the way, he pled to two counts that aren't a crime which nobody understands. i watched a number of shows, sometimes you get pretty good information by watching shows. those two counts aren't even a crime. they weren't campaign finance. ainsley: did you know about the payments? >> later on i knew. later on, but you have to understand, ainsley, what he did and they weren't taken out of campaign finance, that's a big thing. that's a much bigger thing. did they come out of campaign? they didn't come out of the campaign. they came from me. i tweeted about it i don't know if you know but i tweeted about the payments but they didn't come out of campaign. in fact, my first question, when i heard about it was did they come out of the campaign because that could be a little dicey. and they didn't come out of the campaign. and that's big. but think weren't -- that's not -- it's not even a campaign violation. if you look at president obama, he had a massive
4:05 am
campaign violation but he had a different attorney general and they viewed it a lot differently. you know, we have somebody that they seem to like to go after a lot of republicans. but, he settled his very easily. in fact, i put that out fairly recently so obama had it. other people have it almost everybody that runs for office has campaign violations. but, what michael cohen pled to weren't even campaign related. they weren't crimes. ainsley: why is he doing this? he is your attorney. >> he made a great deal. he was in another business totally unrelated to me where i guess there was fraud involved and loans and taxicabs and all sorts of things. nothing to do with me because he had an outside business. he worked for me. you could really say it was more or less part time. he had other businesses. he had other clients. i'm not his only clients. and michael cohen had, i guess, a taxi business and somebody reported him for some things in his taxi
4:06 am
business. and that's how this started. and they put the two counts of campaign violations in there but a lot of lawyers on television and also lawyers that i have seen that they are not even crimes. ainsley: if you are saying payments are not illegal, then why we even -- why would he use that information for a plea deal? >> because he makes a better deal when he uses me like everybody else. one of the reasons i respect paul manafort so much is he went through that trial. they make up stories. people make up stories. this whole thing about flipping, they call it, i know all about flipping for 30, 40 years i have been watching flippers. everything is wonderful and then they get 10 years in jail and they flip on whoever the next highest one is. or as high as you can go. it almost ought to be outlawed. it's not fair. because if somebody is going to give -- spend five years like michael cohen or 10 years or 15 years in jail because of a taxicab
4:07 am
industry, because he defrauded some bank, the last two were the tiny ones, campaign violations are considered not a big deal, frankly. but, if somebody defrauded a bank and he is going to get 10 years in jail or 20 years in jail, but if you can say something bad about donald trump, and you will go down to two years or three years, which is the deal he made, in all fairness to him, most people are going to do that. and i have seen it many times. i have had many friends involved in this stuff. it's called flipping and it almost ought to be illegal. you get 10 years in jail. but, if you say bad things about somebody, in other words, make up stories if you don't know, make up stories, they just make up lies. alan dershowitz said compose, right? they make up lies. i have seen testimony times. they make up things and now they go from 10 years to they're a national hero. they have a statue erected in their honor. it's not a fair thing. but, that's why he did it he made a very good deal. i mean, for what he did. but i will tell you somebody
4:08 am
made a better deal awan, the it guy for schultz. congresswoman schultz. he had all the information on democrats. he had all information on everybody. he went to jail holding the hands of the justice department and the fbi. they sat there together. they were smiling and laughing. and he got nothing. and he stole money. and he had more information on corruption of the democrats than anybody. and they don't even have his computers and his servers. they just gave him nothing. you saw that. it was on your show. they gave him nothing, nothing. ainsley: double standard? >> double standard? i mean, he was worse than anybody, in my opinion. he got nothing. he is a democrat. he got nothing. the reason he got nothing because the dems are very strong in the justice department. i put an attorney general that never took control of the justice department, jeff sessions. never took control of the justice department.
4:09 am
and it's sort of an incredible thing. we have this country going so well. mike pompeo is doing incredibly, all of my people they are doing incredibly. but the whole thing with going on with justice and fbi, when you see strzok and his lover, lisa page. when you see comey with all the lies that he has told, when you see mueller with the conflicts, he is so conflicted. comey is his best friend. he had a really nasty business transaction with me, which he never reported. i have been talking about he never reports it. i mean, you look at the bad things, he wanted the fbi job that christopher wray has. christopher wray was recommended by rosenstein. the fbi, i will tell you what, if you took a poll in the fbi, i guarantee you one thing, i would do very well. ainsley: are you considering pardoning paul manafort? >> i have great respect for what he has done in terms of
4:10 am
what he has gone through. you know, he worked for ronald reagan for years. he worked for bob doll, he worked, i guess his firm worked for mccain he worked for many people. all the charges they threw against him every lobbyist in washington probably does. if you look at hillary clinton's person, you take a look at the people that worked for hillary clinton, i mean, look at the crimes that clinton did with the emails and she deletes 33,000 emails after she gets a subpoena from congress and this justice department does nothing about it? all of the other crimes. look at podesta. podesta waste suppose you had to be manafort on steroids think made him close up his firm. he was going to be indicted the next day, we heard. never happened. instead they go after manafort. so, look i didn't know man
4:11 am
ford well. he wasn't with the campaign long. they got him on things totally unrelated to the campaign. by the way they got cohen on things totally unreality to the campaign. i'm not involved. i'm not charged with anything. people don't like to say that but i wasn't charged. when you look at the corruption on the other side, and they refuse to look at anything. when you don't look at strzok where he said basically we are going to take out the president, the insurance policy and everything else. look at lisa page, the two lovers back and forth with these horrible, these horrible texts. you look at the kind of talk going on about it's really a subversion. and our justice department doesn't do anything about it. people say oh, but you appointed jeff sessions. i said i did. but, i really feel as long as this is going out, i don't have to do this but i will stay uninvolved and maybe that's the best thing to do. ainsley: mr. president, a lot of people are frustrated a lot of your supporters are frustrated with the doj and jeff sessions.
4:12 am
rumors you have will fire him after the mid terms and rosenstein. they also want these documents. they are wondering if you will use your power to get these documents released? >> at the right time i think i have to do the documents. i didn't want to. but i think i'm going to have to. there is such corruption. before i got here. it's from before i got here. it's the obama administration. and you look at what happened, they surveilled my campaign. it's very simple. the fisa report. the phony. ainsley: rosenstein signed the last fisa report. >> it bothers me. it has always bothered me. ainsley: will you fire him? will you fire sessions. >> as i said i wanted to stay uninvolved when everybody sees what's happened in the justice department. i put justice in quotes. jeff sessions recused himself which he shouldn't have done. or he should have told me. even my enemies say that jeff sessions should have told you that he was going to recuse himself and then you wouldn't have put him in. he took the job and then he said i'm going to recuse
4:13 am
myself. i said what kind of a man is this? by the way, he was on the campaign. the only reason i gave him the job because i felt loyalty. he was an original supporter. he was on the campaign. he knows there was no collusion. and what's come out of manafort? no collusion. what's come out of michael cohen? no collusion. this is stuff that they got. ainsley: right. >> how about with michael cohen in all fairness to him, they raid his office at 6:00 in the morning? and how about with manafort, they raid his home at like 5:00 in the morning, i think, on a weekend and his wife is in bed and they go in with guns? ainsley: yes. >> this isn't al capone. steve: a lot of news has broken right there. very clearly the president of the united states says michael cohen's actions were not crimes. he has been described as a fixer by others. he says he worked essentially part time for me. i had a lot of lawyers. ainsley: the payout money came from him. not the campaign.
4:14 am
he said so it is not a campaign violation. what also stuck out, he never said that he was going to pardon paul manafort it sounded like to me might be considering it he never said and he never said no. he really didn't answer the question. brian: charges paul manafort charges are real. he pardon something clearly looks as though overwhelming evidence he did. especially the next trial coming up. that's pretty much the issue. he is not pardoning from anything he did for him he is doing it for things that have nothing to do with him. that might be where the rubber hits the road with republicans. you don't want to alien nate republicans because what do you have in the house and senate? meanwhile -- do you want to audit anything? ainsley: the next chunk, his interview, i asked him is the press the enemy of the people and we also asked him what's the grade you would give yourself? steve: um. brian: michael cohen faces years in prison for violating campaign finance

4:19 am
ainsley, what he did and they weren't taken out of campaign finance. that's a big thing. that's a much bigger thing, did they come out of campaign? they didn't come out of the campaign. they came from me. steve: president trump telling ainsley, answering questions about payments he made from his 2016 campaign, but former president obama's 2008 campaign failed to disclose contributions and they only faced a fine here to weigh in said not crime; is that correct? >> that is 100 percent correct. he made a payment not related to the campaign and there was no crime there whatsoever. as i understand it legal segments are not campaign contributions; is that accurate? >> that is accurate. in this context it's not accurate because it was related to something not directly about the campaign it was a personal expense, a
4:20 am
business expense. this happens all the time and, in fact, jo john edwards had his campaign contributor. steve: he did. and president obama during his campaign there were hundreds of thousands of dollars worthy of violations and he just got a fine. >> he got a fine, which is not unusual for the federal election commission. his error there was reporting those late. so, in the bigger picture, you know, that doesn't bother me so much. what does bother me is that we had exposed last year that $17 million over the course of 20 years was paid out by a congressional hush fund to settle -- to settle sexual abuse or mismanagement issues. and that's clearly not a campaign violation. steve: interesting stuff. mark, we thank you for joining us live with your point of view on what the president is telling ainsley. all right. thank you, sir. >> thanks, steve. steve: coming up, more of ainsley's exclusive

>> thanks for having me. >> you want to get magna cum laude majoring in beyonce could pay off. >> nobody loves beyonce more than me. i love her as a person and entertainer. guess what? that's not what i'm going to school for trying to get a career something that pays me and get out of poverty and that whole thing. the cost of college has increased over 200 pours over the last 30 years. part of it is because they are taking all these crazy courses because it helps them in their whole, you know, their mood and the coddling. and so what we have been reporting on at campus reform is that the increase of these courses that don't contribute to work life once they graduate is part of the cost. brian: i heard rutgers there is a lot of people who sign up for that course. >> there is not a lack of young people -- the problem is a lot of these social science degrees, the market is saturated, brian there is a lot of openings for math
4:27 am
and science out there. even when they release the job numbers, a lot of those opening jobs were in math and science. when it comes to social science, history and all this stuff, not de grading it it's not enough jobs there. brian: just reminds me a little bit what ivanka was talking about and mike rowe talking about. getting people to think for themselves. maybe college is not for me but skills and a career. we need plumbers and electricians. >> i don't know if you looked at your last plumbing bill or electric bill they get paid very well. so much of the electricians even get paid 6 figures. i'm not saying that they cannot take courses to have fun but at the end of the day they have got to look at the bottom line. not their emotions but what they do when they get in the workforce. brian: yale psychology and the good life. fascinating. skidmore the sociology of miley cyrus and oberlin how to win a beauty pageant. death in america, how will
4:28 am
you die? there is uplifting class. >> i'm sure your life is not going to be good when you can't go into the workforce and find a job. you can have fun but look at the long-term strategy. like i said i love beyonce but if you want to learn her culture go to her concert. don't go into the classroom to learn about beyonce. brian: crazy courses in college. lawrence jones editor in chief. >> send us lots of tips when you see this crazy information contact us at campus reform.org. brian: get an a in beyonce and miley cyrus fail. 20 minutes after the hour, lawrence, by the way, can we get a conversation on, this is this true, joel, he will be hosting outnumbered. that will be true at 12:00. you won't be wearing a bow tie or not? >> no bow tie. meanwhile the video is troubling. you have an officer begging for help as a suspect tries to grab his gun. instead of jumping into action everybody stood by. and more of ainsley's

♪ steve: all right. welcome back. anxiously got an exclusive interview with the president of the united states yesterday. over the last month or so, one of the things that has really rankelled the press is that he has referred to the press as the enemy of the people. ainsley: we asked him about that yesterday. here is his response on that and we asked him to grade himself. watch. ainsley: the press. is the press the enemy. people. >> not at all. but the fake news is. the fake news is comprised of a big chunk, okay.
4:33 am
what's the chunk? i said 80%. it's a lot. it's a lot. if i do something well, it's not reported. other than in the 20%. "new york times" cannot write a good story about me. they are crazed. they are like lunatics, if i do something well, i often joke i will do some great things like meeting with kim jong un. that was a great success. hey, they have been working on this for so many years and they got nothing. i just left, what, three months ago or less, i left singapore you had no missiles shot, no rockets shot no. nuclear testing and we got back our hostages and i have a good relationship with them. you know, we have a good chemicals together. i don't know if that's good or bad. we have a good chemicals. i spoke with prime minister abe of japan this morning. he started the call by saying i want to thank you for the great job that you
4:34 am
have done with north korea. he said we haven't had missiles shot over japan in so long the people of japan feel safe. mr. president, i want to thank you for the great job have you done with north korea. they don't feel that hostility. when i took over president obama thought we would have to go to war with north korea. i asked him did you ever speak to kim jong un? he said no. i said wouldn't it be a good thing to give a shot? if you remember, the only thing they got me on, they said he spoke, he met. look, i didn't give him anything. he has nothing except sanctions, okay. very heavy sanctions on north korea. put them on yesterday because we would like it to go faster. i didn't give him anything. never forget talk about the fake news. they said donald trump met-out first day was incredible. nobody believed i was able to do it. obama couldn't get a
4:35 am
meeting. clinton couldn't get a meeting. bush couldn't get a meeting, you know, with the family. nobody could get a meeting. and this one is tougher than the father. i say that with respect, but he is tougher than the father and tougher than the grandfather they couldn't get a meeting. i got a meeting. even make news said it was unbelievable. five or six hours went by and they had to get their narrative straight and they said, very interesting. donald trump agreed to meet. that was supposed to be like a loss. it was a great success. my meeting with putin was a tremendous success. i got killed by the fake news. they wanted me to go up and punch him in the face. i said i want to get along with russia. i want to get along with everybody. they said i was too rush on north korea. remember that? too rough. but with putin they said i was too soft. my meeting with putin was a tremendous success, syria, ukraine and if you look at
4:36 am
crimea, that was given away by president obama. it has nothing to do with me. nobody wants to mention that we have had tremendous success and just to finish. nato, i raised hundreds of billions of dollars from these countries that weren't paying. they were delinquent. they weren't paying their bills. the press doesn't like to talk about that. the press talks about the fact that i insulted a lot of the leaders because i was strong on the fact that they had to pay. i said no, the united states is not going to be paying your bills. with that i'm having a good time. ainsley: guys, what's your take away from that. brian: a couple things. everything is describing is not about him it's the country. trump organization doesn't get bigger. they don't get anything -- what he is like to do is make it safer, grow the economy, is he trying to make our allies act like true allies. partnership. we are on the threshold of cutting a deal with mexico. canada has been watching. nafta deal. china is here trying to
4:37 am
renegotiate. ask yourself, what's his benefit? none personally, he gave away his salary. is he doing it to rebalance american trade. that's what people like. steve: you look at all that good news that he feels is not being covered and that's why he feels like -- that's where fake news came from. in people. interesting to describe that chunk as 80%, which he apparently thinks is fake news. is not accurate. is not favorable toward him. i don't know that his answer is going to the people in the press and others who think that that, you know, enemy of the people think is inflammatory and he should not use it. it sounds like is he going to continue to use it whether people like it or not. brian: and what bothers him, i think, too. when you come to illegal immigrant story murdering this 20-year-old jogger out of iowa when the press doesn't want to write it's an illegal immigrant here and that's exactly what they adopt to do on immigration. they leave that out of
4:38 am
headlines or the story or claim people are politicizing it rather than recognizing it. ainsley: we did is ask him with mollie tibbetts and what he thought about the arrest of that illegal immigrant. we will play that section of the interview next hour. brian: by the way are you making all these decisions look how control you are. ainsley: wonderful teammates make those decisions and tells me: talk about himself giving a grade and always ask what is the grade you would give yourself right now? and this is his response. what grade do you give yourself so far? >> >> so, i give myself an a plus. i don't think any president has ever done. two years biggest tax cuts in history. soon to be two unbelievable supreme court justices. i'm sure that justice kavanaugh will be approved. justice gorsuch has been a star. you look at all of the things we have done with regulations. the economy is the best it has ever been in history. the only thing i'm doing bad
4:39 am
in is the press doesn't cover me fairly. i thought after i won -- they killed me during the campaign. just killed me. one good thing about winning i have showed them. so now i'm going to get fair press. guess what? it got worse. it's worse. so the press does this. i would honestly give myself an a plus and so would many other people. you go to the people of west virginia, you saw them last night, that went to a state that was down and out and now it's flourishing. you go to some of these states that were down and out and now they are doing fantastically well. when i finish the trade deals, you watch what happens for our farmers which have been going down for 15 years. you watch what happens. they are are going to be very, very happy. they are going to be very wealthy. ainsley: a plus. write us and let us know what you think his grade is friends@foxnews.com. steve: we when we interviewed him in february of 2017 you asked him that question, how we grade himself and he said for achievement i would give myself an a but for communication and getting
4:40 am
the word out he said he would give himself a c at that point. so it's interesting. given he has actually been able, to he says achieve things. he is now at an a plus. brian: that's something that hasn't come with nancy pelosi. nancy pelosi says we are doing a lot of great things we just don't brag enough about it so, again, they -- he has learned to brag about it so there you go. these people are just covering. ainsley: hand it over to jillian for more headlines. jillian: good morning to you. let's start with this. a officer begs by standers including a female security guard to put down the phone and help. watch this. >> why did you do that. >> oh my god. [screams] >> >> well, that woman security guard now out of a job after the viral video caught her recording the whole thing and not helping. of the suspect 17-year-old

4:49 am
you can see this is a family-owned company. made in the u.s.a. what most people have no idea about though is they look at these boats is that 95% of the boats on the water in the u.s. get this made in the u.s.a. it's quintessentially an american industry. the ceo also told me that they have had orders cancel all canada, all eu orders have been cancelled while this whole tariff issue plays out. so we are going to be talking to him a little later in the day. let me tell you, this is fascinating. american made, american owned for 49 years. the cook family has owned this company and it's just amazing what they are doing here. we'll keep an eye on it back to you. steve: all right, gerri, thank you very much. if anybody is in the market for a boat because they are trying to grow the boat business in the united states. check out the regal line, it looks great. ainsley: thanks so much, gerri. we have more of that exclusive interview with president trump, including his thoughts on michael cohen.

4:55 am
ainsley: call him antihuman candidate anti-third child and fourth child. if you do have a big family you will be taxed to the hilt. why are the democrats endorsing this guy? why is he their choice? >> i think what they liked about him is that he is extremely rich and the party that claims to represent the poor really likes rich candidates because that means they can fund themselves. this is pennsylvania first district of pennsylvania. all the experts say it should be in play, held by a republican. should be opportunity for democrats to take it over but, you know, i just sort of hard to see how that happens with a gik like this. ainsley: did he advocate or did his foundation donate. >> his campaign is quickly distancing themselves from this. while ran the organization gave $7 million to this

to defend. ainsley: one-on-one with the president, we sat outside and had about a 22-minute conversation about the news of the day. so we are going to show you the entire interview, what we have done is we have broken into chunks and this is the first chunk that deals with how he's doing, how melania is doing, paul manafort and jeff sessions. >> thank you so much for sitting down with me, how are you doing? >> i'm doing great, we had incredible rally last night in west virginia, it was beautiful, tremendous crowd and we will win a big race over there and i guess you could say that our numbers in winning whether it's for the senate or for congress or for governor has been very good. ainsley: how is our country's first lady doing? >> she's doing great, terrific woman, she goes through a lot with all of the publicity but she's a terrific woman, she's doing great. ainsley: how do you handle all of that?
5:02 am
>> well, it's part of my life, i guess my whole life has been this way. everybody says, this is controversy and i don't know, i've always had controversy in my life and i've always succeeded and i've always won. we have the best economy in the history of our country and more jobs today, literally today, more jobs, more people working in the united states than ever before in the history of our country, black unemployment, asian unemployment, women unemployment, hispanic unemployment, historic lows. it's been amazing thing and, you know, unfortunately the media never covers it. they don't like to cover that kind of thing, they cover nonsense. ainsley: yeah, yesterday huge news day, a lot breaking today as well, michael cohen, tell me about your relationship with him. >> well, he was a lawyer for me for one of many, you know, they
5:03 am
always say the lawyer and then they like to add the fixer, i don't know where that term came from, he didn't do big deals, small deals, not somebody that was with me that much, they make it sound like i didn't live without him, i understood michael cohen very well, turned out not to be good lawyer, frankly, he was probably that was with me for about ten years and i would see him sometimes, but when i had deals and big deals i had outside lawyers and inside lawyers too in addition to michael. i always found him to be nice guy. ainsley: he said one story, you didn't know anything about the payment and now you're saying that you directed him to make the payments, did you direct -- >> he made the deals, by the way, he pled to two accounts that aren't a crime which nobody understands. i watched a number of shows, sometimes you get pretty good
5:04 am
information by watching shows, those two weren't crimes. ainsley: did you knew about the payments in. >> later on, later on. you have to understand, ainsley, what he did ant weren't taken out of campaign finance, that's the bigger thing, did they came out of campaign, they came from me and i tweeted about it, i don't know if you know, i tweeted about the payments, but they didn't come out of campaign, in fact, my first question when i heard about it was did they come out of the campaign because that could be a little dicey and they didn't come out of the campaign and that's fake. but they weren't -- it's not even campaign violation. you look at president obama he had a massive campaign violation, but he had a different attorney general and they viewed it a lot differently. we have somebody that they like to go after a lot of republicans, but he settled his
5:05 am
very easily, in fact, i put that out fairly recently, so obama had it, other people have it, almost everybody that runs for office has campaign violations but what michael cohen pled to weren't even campaign related. they weren't crimes. ainsley: why is he doing that? >> he made a great deal. he was in another business totally unrelated to me where i guess there was fraud involved and loans and tampa tampa -- tae worked for me more or less part time, he had other businesses, he had other clients, i'm not his only client. michael cohen had a, the taxi business and that's how they it started, they put campaign violations in there but a lot of lawyers on television and also lawyers that i have seen that
5:06 am
are not even crimes. ainsley: if you're saying the payments, if they are not illegal, why would he use that information for a plead deal? >> he makes a better deal when he uses me like everybody else. one of the reasons i respect paul manafort so much, he went through the trial. they make up stories, people make up stories. the whole thing about flipping they call it, i know all about flipping for 30, 40 years, i have been watching flippers, everything is wonderful and then they get 10 years in jail and they flip on whoever the next highest one is or as highest you can two. it almost ought to be outlawed. it's not fair. if somebody is going spend 5 years or 10 years or 15 years because of taxi cab industry, he defrauded some bank, the last two were the typy ones, campaign violations are considered not a big deal frankly. but if somebody defrauded the bank and he's going 10 years in jail or 20 years and if you can
5:07 am
say something bad about donald trump and go back to 2 years or 3 years which is the deal he made n all fairness to him, most people are going to do that and i've seen it many times, i've had many friends involved in this stuff, it's called flipping and it almost ought to be illegally. you get 10 years in jail but if you say bad things, make up stories if you don't know, make up stories, they make up lies, allen dershowitz said compose, make up lies, i have seen it many times, make up things and now they go from 10 years to national hero, they have a statute erected in their honor. it's not a fair thing and that's why it's a big deal for what he did. the it guy to congressman schultz, all the information,
5:08 am
they sat there together, they were smiling and laughing, they got nothing, he stole money, had more information on corruption of the democrats or anybody, they don't even have computers and his computers, they just -- you saw that, it was on your show, they gave nothing, nothing. >> double standard? >> double standard, he was worst than anybody in my opinion. he got nothing, he's a democrat. he got nothing. the reason he got nothing is because the dems are very strong in the justice department. i put in attorney general that never took control of the justice department, jeff sessions, never took control of the justice department and sort of an incredible thing. we have the country going so well, mike pompeo is doing incredibly, all of my people are doing incredibly, but the whole thing with going on with the justice and fbi, when you see
5:09 am
strzok and his lover hissa -- lisa page and when you see comey with all the lies and you see mueller, he's so conflicted. comey is his best friend. he had a really nasty business transaction with me which he never reported. i've been talking about it, he never reports it. you look at the bad things, he was an fbi and was recommended by rosenstein. the fbi -- if you took a poll in the fbi, i guaranty you one thing, i would do very well. ainsley: are you considering pardoning paul manafort? >> i have great respect for what he's done in terms of what he gone through. you know he worked for ronald reagan and bob dole, i guess -- his firm worked for mccain, he worked for many, many people, many, many years, what he did,
5:10 am
some of the charges they threw against him, every consultant, every lobbyist in washington probably does. if you look at hillary clinton's person, you take a look at the people that worked for hillary clinton, look at the crimes that clinton did with the emails and she deletes 33,000 emails after she gets subpoena from congress and this justice department does nothing about it and all of the other crimes that they've done and they -- look at podesta, podesta was supposed to be manafort on steroids, they made him close up his firm, he was going to be indicted the next day we heard, never happened. instead they go after manafort. so, look, i didn't know manafort well, he wasn't in campaign long. they got him on things unrelated to campaign. by the way, they got cohen unremitted -- unrelated with the campaign. i wasn't charged with anything,
5:11 am
people don't like to say, when you look at the corruption, they refuse to look at anything, when you don't look at strzok when he said basically we will take out the president, the insurance policy and everything else, you look at lisa page, two lovers with the horrible, horrible texts, you look at the kind of talk going on about it's subversion and our justice doesn't do anything about it, people say, but you appointed jeff sessions, i said i did, but i really feel as long as this is going out, i don't have to do this but i will stay uninvolved and maybe that's the best thing to do. ainsley: a lot of people are frustrated, a lot of supporters are frustrated with doj, jeff sessions, a lot of rumors that you will fire after midterms and will you get power of release. >> at the right time i will do the documents, i didn't want to, there's such corruption, before
5:12 am
i got here, it's before i got here, it's the obama administration and you look at what happened, they surveilled my campaign. it's very simple. the fisa report, the phoney -- ainsley: rosenstein signed the last fisa report. >> it's always bothered. ainsley: would you fire him? >> as i said i wanted to stay uninvolved but when everybody sees what's going on in the justice department, now put justice with quotes, it's a very bad day, jeff sessions rescued himself which he shouldn't have done or should have told me, even enemies say that jeff sessions should have told you that he was going to recuse himself and you wouldn't have put him in. he took the job and then he said i'm going recuse myself. i said what kind of a man is this, and by the way, he was on the campaign, you know, the only reason i gave him the job because i felt loyalty, he was an original supporter, he was on the campaign, he knows that there was no collusion.
5:13 am
and what's come out of manafort, no collusion, what's come out of michael cohen, no collusion. this is stuff that they got. how about with michael cohen, they raid his office at 6:00 o'clock in the morning and how about with manafort, they raid his home at like 5:00 in the morning even on the weekend and his wife is in bed and they go in with guns, this isn't al capone. steve: made a lot of news and in listening to it again, the president said something very interesting when you were asking about the release of the documents that the republicans want up on capitol hill. he said at the right time i may have to order the doj to release them. what would the right time would be? probably right after brett kavanaugh is confirmed by the u.s. senate. i didn't want to do it before, would like to do before midterms. brian: the dems are saying, the president is in so much legal turmoil we have to hold off on brett kavanaugh confirmation.
5:14 am
steve: looking for excuse. ainsley: the payout money that came from him not his campaign, so it's not a campaign violation and he also said he was going to -- he never said he was going to pardon paul manafort but it sounded like to me that he might be considering it, he never said yes and he never said no. steve: but you asked him and he did not answer, all right, more coming up in about half an hour and brand-new details about the illegal immigrant charged many murder of mollie tibbetts. let your perfect drive come together during the final days of the lincoln summer invitation event

5:37 am
democrats is very tough, the immigration laws are horrible, we are doing an incredible job, record-breaking job, we have bad laws. you can do good but you could do a lot better if you had good laws. they will all get changed but we have to elect more republicans. >> the nazi guard living in new york, officials deported him. why was that so important? >> i have a lot of jewish friends who said to me about this man, i grew up in queens, that is where i grew up and he was a man, not just a prison guard but supervise the killing of many jews. he has lived here for decades and walks the streets, i walk the same streets. people came up to me. they tell me about this nazi who lived in queens and walks the street like he owns the place, he is 95 years old and the obama administration was
5:38 am
unable to pull it off and the bush administration was unable to pull it off. democrat assemblyman from new york, heavy democrat, a guy who never heard of a republican. he was giving me such praise. he was so nice. he said thank you, mister president, thank you. it was so nice to watch because of the fact he is a democrat, he said i don't care whether it is republican or democrat, what he did is something nobody else was able to do. i have done many things like that. they don't get reported. they don't get reported. what we are doing for healthcare is incredible. we are keeping the remnants of obamacare, we mostly got it killed, got rid of the individual mandate but the remnants of obamacare, the increase is much less than people thought because of us.
5:39 am
we are getting rid of it and putting in new healthcare which is a beautiful thing. >> 76 days from the midterms, hard to believe. of democrats take back our you believe they will try to impeach you? >> i guess it is something like high crimes and all. i don't know how you can impeach somebody who has done a great job. if i ever got impeached i think the market would crash. i think everybody would be very poor because without this you would see numbers you wouldn't believe if hillary clinton got elected instead of 4.1, each point is 31/$2 trillion. when i took it over it was at one and it was going to be down, it was going down. i got rid of regulations, the tax cut was a tremendous thing and even before the tax cut right from the first day i got rid of regulations, 48,000 jobs, did a lot of things.
5:40 am
had hillary in the democrats gotten in, had she been president you would have had negative growth. we picked up $10 trillion, china has gone down $15 trillion. when i came in china was a dominant force. now they like me very much. i get along great with abca1. we can no longer give you $500 billion a year on bad trade deals and you see what happened for the last 90 days and the reason i waited is i wanted china's help. otherwise i would've done it sooner. china has been a big help and i hope they continue to be but i have to get going on trade but last year china -- we had a deficit with china, $517 billion, not going to happen anymore. >> the question about impeachment is interesting because we heard from people in washington dc that some legal experts, any legal peril regarding michael cohen claims
5:41 am
but the real peril is impeachment and going closer to the midterms look for republicans to save the democrats win they will try to impeach him and look at the success the administration had, do you want this to happen, that will be there argument. >> don't you can impeach the become he said, who has done a great job. in the market will crash. >> michael cohen speaking to authorities about his foundation, clearly someone is trying to circle the wagons, circle the president, hopefully his legal team is up for the battle. >> 19 minutes before the top of the hour. dana lash is up next and you know about political analysis but he condition mean burger too. we are cooking with the bossi family straight ahead. >> the boston burger. ♪

5:48 am
him said they didn't run e-verify, they just used social security to make sure the documents checked out which seems a little weird. he wasn't working here legally, dhs and border security, every alphabet soup agency had no record of him. >> they did not have e-verify and he used the wrong name, doesn't am i can innocent guy making his way up in america and no one is buying that he blacked out during the situation. if you look at his background i'm sure this is not the first transgression. >> i agree with you. we need to stop giving -- this is what it feels like to me and a lot of people all over the country. to us, we see individuals who enter the country illegally, democrats want to conflate lawful immigration with those who enter illegally. it feels like they are completing the issue, and give some sort of bizarre diplomatic immunity to people who enter the country illegally. why can't they be held at work for their crimes.
