everybody gets to a spot where you can if you are here at the party you get to see the screens. if you are at home, watch the screen. it is story about a young servicemen away at war. it is around the holidays. he has a deck of cards and the lieutenant walks in. he says, son, what are you doing? he said i was about to spend some time with at the lord in prayer. he said frankly, son, it looks like you are about to play cards. i know, sir, it does seem that way. if you allow me to explain, i think you'll find this interesting. this deck of cards acts as my bible. in my bible the a reminds me there's one god. the two is the two halves of the bible. i even have the trinity, the father, son, holy spirit or the gospels represented by the four. every week i think about the six days if which god created the heavens and the earth and the seventh day on which he rested which is my stab 15 -- sabbath.
the most important are the ten commandments and jesus christ who is the king of my heart. at this point the lieutenant was surprised and frankly impressed. he said that's not all. there's four suits. there's hearts, clubs, suedes, diamonds, and four seasons in the year. if you were to add up all of the cards, 52 cards in the deck, 52 weeks in the year. check this out. if you were to add up every spot in the deck of cards, it equals 365 the days in the year. you see, lieutenant, if you were to spread the deck of cards in front of me, i would see all of the thing i'm thankful for. as a magician, i take it further. as a deck of cards, i can see all that i have to be thankful for. just maybe it is a young man or woman overseas fighting for the freedom that i can even tell
this story. >> kennedy: look at that. wow. as we look back at 2018, thank you for letting me share. i'm justin flume. >> kennedy: that's amazing. >> well done. bravo. how did you know that, justin? >> kennedy: he can't let you in on the secret. >> pete: you come from a long line of magicians? >> my whole family was magicians. >> one more magic trick? >> someone has the $20. beautiful job right there. >> can i have your autograph? is that possible? >> people want your autograph. >> sure. put your name right there. it is new years. we're going to do something. i would have told the guy we hind us. we're going to rip up the dollar bill here. once. >> we're going to have a toss
back. >> this is how we make new year new year's confetti. watch this. the pieces come back into your hand. open it up and show the camera. that's not taped or glued together. that's printed money back together. >> and i can't use it it. >> take that to the bank. they will tell you what you can do with that. >> or give your $20 to me. we'll keep the party rolling. >> pete: i tear up my money daily. it never comes back. >> kennedy: i have $500 i see to the shedder for run. >> pete: basically the story of my life. >> kennedy: we'll check in with fox nation party. i know we have this incredible interview coming up in just a little bit. >> pete: are you talking about the interview with nancy pelosi. >> kennedy: she's going to stop by. it is wet. she's on her way back. she's going to be on the ricer. you can talk to her.
>> pete: we might talk to her. before that we're going to speak -- we have spoken one on one with the president of the united states, donald j. trump. yes, he gave us his thoughts on the shutdown, the democrats, the withdraw from syria, and the potential war in 2020 ticket. here's your president, donald
trump. >> happy new year to you, sir. thank you for joining the fox news channel "all american new year." we're live in times square. we wish you could be here as well. we know you are in washington. what are your plans tonight? >> i'm sitting in the white house right now. i'm talking to you. you know, it is -- i think moving along well. we need border security. everybody knows it. we need a lot of people approved that we can't get through the senate. we have 360 people. they want to join the administration. the ambassadors and lawyers and lots of other people. we cannot get them approved. because i could you could call
it obstruction if you think about it it it. it is pure obstruction. we have a lot of other things. we have probably done more, pete, than any administration in the first two years in history according to most. >> pete: we want to get to looking back a little at 20 system. let me stay on the top ebbing of the shuttdown, mr. president. you stayed in washington, d.c. we've seen nancy pelosi in hawaii and democrats not ready to come back. they want to see you stand firm. are you willing to continue the shutdown if the money does not come? >> we have to have border security. the wall is part of border security. i hear about the wall is old fashioned. it is not old fashioned. it is 100% foolproof. you look at the wheel. i guess they would say the wheel is old fashioned. it's been around for a long time. the wall is the only way to do it. technology. nobody knows more about technology than me.
technology is just the bells and whistles on the wall. if you don't have the wall, you are going to have people coming in. and my border patrol people they do a fantastic job. you know, they need the backup of the wall. they are the ones that want it more than anybody, pete. >> pete: how far are you willing to go, mr. president? where do you anticipate talks with chuck and nancy? >> i'm assume when they get back. i'm in washington. i'm ready, willing, and able. they could have come over right now. i spent christmas in the white house. i spent new year's eve now in the white house. i'm here. i'm ready to go. it is very important. a lot of people are looking to get their paycheck. so i'm ready to go any time they want. we're not giving up. we have to have border security. the wall is a big part of border security. the biggest part. >> pete: absolutely. mr. president, another piece of news, lindsey graham emerged from the white house. he was critical about your
decision to withdraw from syria. he said now i support the president. he's more hawkish on american troops and intervention abroad. what was said that changed the mind of lindsey graham? >> i don't think too much. i never said i'm going to rush out. we're going to get out. we're getting out of syria. we're bringing our young, great troops over after so many years. we were supposed to be in syria for three to four months. that was four or five year ago. it is time. we have to bring them home. we're going to do it in a very good way. frankly, you know this better than anybody, pete, isis was all over the place when i took over. it was a total mess in syria. we've almost eradicated all of them. we think all of them will be gone by the time we get out. we're heading back, and we're also fighting. you can do two things at once. plus as you know we have other bases in the general area. in particular we have one in
iraq. nobody said anything about that. we're fighting the endless wars. i campaigned on getting out of the endless wars. i've done more than i said. not only am i able to get out, but i've also won. you look at what i've tone. we've largely eradicated isis. that doesn't mean we don't totally finish the job. that's going to be a short period of time. we have to bring our troops back home. it is time. >> certainly an accomplishment. the destruction of isis has not gotten enough notice. >> they don't want to talk about it. >> pete: they really don't. if lindsey graham is on bored -- board with a plan like that, that's a good sign. everyone thought 2019 would be the year that democrats try to take the primary to win in 2020. one of them jumped the gun. elizabeth warren, one of your favorite senators, will be announcing an exploratory committee. your reaction to your opponent
on the democratic side, mr. president? >> i'm happy about it. i think she will be wonderful. i hope she maybe gets the nomination. that would be a wonderful thing for me. the only reason the democrats as an example aren't approving all of these people that want to come into government, and they really do, they want to come in. we need lawyers and ambassadors and all of the 360 people the democrats won't approve or look at not approving the wall. walls don't work. it is because of the 2020 election. they think i'm going to win. i think based on record i'm going to win also. i think we're going to win big. they figure by obstructing, they can do this. elizabeth warren was the first. she did badly about proving she was from indian heritage. i think you have more. i would love to run against
here. >> pete: she says she's in the fight all the way, mr. president. do you think she believes she can win? >> that i don't know. you would have to ask her psychiatrist. honestly, if it is her or somebody else, based on our record, pete, when you look at what we've done and when you look at at the regulation cuts, and when you look at the massive tax cuts and what we've done for the vets and for the military. you know with the vets we have choice. now as you know better than anybody almost i can speak too that was phase one. we're going to phase two and phase three. we're doing it in steps. when you look at all of the things we've done for building up our military and all of the things. i don't think if you go just based on the record, i don't see how anybody wins. we've done a lot. if you look at unemployment, we're at a 50-year low. for african-americans and hispanics and asians we're at an all-time historic low. the history of our country low. i don't know if somebody can do better than that. good luck.
it just doesn't seem that based on the record somebody is going to do real well. >> pete: that's a fair point. new year's eve tonight a lot of our viewers it is a time for reflection. you look back on 2018 and look forward to 2019. if i could, on a lighter note, your winners and losers from 2018 who are the big winnest and who are the big losers in the last year? >> i think the winners are the american people. we've gotten them tax cuts and jobs. jobs like they've never had before. we've taken care of the military and rebuilt large portions and very shortly all of our military which was depleted. i think that the big winners are the people of the country. that makes me very happy. the one that has lost, you know, i don't want to really say. you have certainly a lot of people that wanted to do things that it didn't work out. i think when you look at some of the candidates that are
announcing right now, i think they'll end up being the losers. you have a lot of people. 32 people could be with the democrats. let's see what happens. i only -- i'm really more interested in the winners. and the winners are the people of the united states. >> pete: absolutely. any resolutions for the new year or any predictions in the new year, or both? >> i think we're going to have a great form of wealth. we've created a lot of wealth for our country. that's very important. that means jobs, it means prosperity, it means we can afford to do what we're doing with the military. we're working on tremendous trade deals where other countries have taken advantage of us so badly. i complained on all of the stuff. i'm producing better than i said during the campaign than i would if you look at what we've done. i think we're going to have tremendous success with trade deals. i think we're going to have
tremendously rebuilt military for strength and hopefully we'll never have to use our military. it will be so strong we'll never have to use it. that would be a good thing. >> pete: mr. president, i shouldn't say this. last year my resolution was to tweet more. it is the first resolution i kept. do you have any resolutions for 2019, sir? any resolutions? >> just success and prosperity and health for our country. that's all i want. >> pete: absolutely. thank you so much for joining us. i have to say my co-host kennedy wanted to say thank you. she loves the tax cuts as do so many americans. thank you for joining us. >> terrific. >> pete: she's terrific. have a great new year's in washington, d.c. we hope to see you soon. >> thank you very much. i really appreciate it, pete. have a great year. thank you. >> pete: you

>> oh, boy. >> maybe they didn't have -- oh, you can eat bread sticks. >> best olive garden. >> and ball drop. >> this is a good day, right? to come to new york city for times square. >> pretty good. >> i think he's doing a great job. >> have fun. >> have fun. >> all right. last question, and that is, have you got a new year's resolution? >> saints going to super bowl. >> there you go. >> in pretty good condition. >> the number one seed. >> they are the number one seed. >> probably right. i have a prediction for 2019. they don't lapse until june. >> good luck, guys. >> who may have a rough morning? our own phil keating in miami.

we had an opportunity to interview the president of the united states, donald trump. here is that interview. >> judge perinpoo >> pete: happy new year, thank you for joining us. we're live in times square. we wish you could be here as well. america wants to know, mr. president, what are your plans don't here on new year's eve? president trump: i'm sitting in the white house right now talking to you. you know, i think it's moving along well. we need border security. everybody knows it. we need a lot of people approved that we can't get through the senate. we can't get them through chuck schumer and the group. we have 360 people who want to join the administration, ambassadors, lawyers, and lots of other people. we can't get them approved
because, i guess you could call it obstruction. if you think about it, pure obstruction. we have a lot of other things but we've probably done more, pete, than any administration in its first two years in history according to most. >> we want to get to looking back at 2018 but let me stay on the topic of the shutdown. you stayed in washington, d.c. through christmas, new year's. we've seen nancy pelosi in hawaii. democrats not willing to come back. a lot of your supporters, to be honest, mr. president, are hoping that you will stand firm on that $5 billion or something big for the wall. are you willing to continue the shutdown if that money does not come? president trump: well, we are. we have no choice. we have to have border security and a wall is part of border security. i hear so much about the wall is old fashion. no, the wall is not old fashion the wall is 100% full proof. you look at a wheel. i guess they would say the wheel is old fashion but it's been around for a long time. the wall is the only way to do it and technology, nobody knows
more about technology than me, but technology, it's just the bells and whistles on the wall. if you don't have the wall you'll have people coming in and my border patrol people, they do a fantastic job, but, you know, they need the back-up of the wall and they are the ones that want it more than anybody, pete. >> pete: how far are you willing to go, mr. president? when do you anticipate talks with chuck and nancy, as you say. president trump: i assume when they get back. i'm in washington, willing and able. i'm in the white house. ready to go. they can come over right now. they can come over any time. i spent christmas in the white house. i spent new year's eve now in the white house. i'm here. i'm ready to got. it's very important to a lot of people. they are looking to get their paycheck, so i'm ready to go any time they want. no, we're not giving up. we have to have border security and the wall is a big part of border security. the biggest part. >> pete: absolutely. mr. president, another piece of news, senator lindsey graham emerged from the white house. he had been critical of your
decision to withdraw troops if syria but he emerged saying now i support the president's decision. a lot of people, famously more hawkish on american troops than intervention abroad. what was said to him what did you relay inside the white house that changed the mind of lindsey graham? president trump: i don't think too much except i said, i never said that i'm going to rush it. we're going to get out. we're getting out of syria. we're bringing our young, great troops home after so many years. we were suppose od to be home. it's time. we have to bring them home and we're going to do it in a very good way, and frankly, and you know this better than anybody, pete, isis was all over the place when i took over. it was a total mess in syria. we've almost eradicated all of them. we think all of them will be gone by the time we get out but we're heading back and we're also fighting. you can do two things at once. plus, as you know, we have other bases in the general area.
in particular, we have one in iraq, and no one said anything about that. but, you know, we're fighting these endless wars. i campaigned on getting out of the endless wars, and frankly, i have done more than i said because not only did i -- am i able to get out but i've also won. you look at what i've done. we've really largely eradicated isis. now, that doesn't mean we don't totally finish the job but that's going to be a very short period of time. we have to bring our troops back home. it's time. >> pete: certainly an accomplishment, the destruction of isis has not gotten enough notice. president trump: they don't want to talk about it, pete. >> pete: they really don't. if lindsey graham is on-board for the plan this is a good sign. everyone thought 2019 would be the year the democrats come out to try to win the primary, to take you on in 2020. it turns out one of them jumped the gun. news recently that elizabeth warren, one of your favorite senators, will be announcing exploratory committee. your reaction to your first
opponent on the democratic side, mr. president? president trump: well, i'm happy about it. i think she'll be wonderful. i hope she maybe gets the nomination. that would be a wonderful thing for me but the only reason the democrats as an example aren't approving all of these people that want to come into government, and they really do, they want to come in, we really need people, we need lawyers, we need ambassadors, we need all of these 360 people that the democrats want to approve, or, if you look at not approving the wall, where they say walls don't work when they work a hundred percent, i mean, when they are so good, it's because of the 2020 election. they think i'm going to win. i think based on record, i'm going to win also. i think we'll win big, and they figure by obstructing they can do this the elizabeth warren will be the first. she did very badly in proving that she is of indian heritage. that didn't work out too well. i think you have more than she does and maybe i do, too, and i have nothing. so we'll see how she does. i wish her well. i hope she does well. i would love to run against her.
>> pete: show says she's in the fight all the way. do you really believe she can win? president trump: that, i don't know, would you have to ask her psychiatrist, but honestly, i mean, if it's her or somebody else, you know, based on our record, pete, when you look at what we've done, when you look at the regulation cuts, when you look at the massive tax cuts, when you look at what we've done for the vets and what we've done for the military, with the vets we have choice, and now as you know better than almost anybody i can speak to, that was phase one of choice. we're going to phase two and ultimately phase three. we're doing it in steps. when you look at all of the things we've done for building up our military and all of the things, i don't think, if you go just based on the record, i don't see how anybody wins. we've done a lot. if you look at unemployment, we're at a 50-year low. for african-americans and for hispanics and asians, we're at an all time historic low. history of our country low. i don't know if somebody can do
better than that good luck but it just doesn't seem based on the record, somebody is going to do real well. president trump: that's a fairpoint, mr. president. now, new year's eve, tonight, a lot of our viewers, it's a time for reflection, you look back on 2018 and forward to 2019. if i could, mr. president, on a lighter note, your winners and losers, who were the big winners and who were the big losers in the last year? president trump: i think the winners are the american people because we've gotten them tax cuts and we've gotten them jobs. jobs like they have never had before. we've taken care of our military. we've rebuilt large portions and very shortly all of our military, which was totally depleted under the previous administration, so i really think that the big winners are the people of this country. the people of our country, and that makes me very happy. the one that has lost, you know, i don't want to really say but you have certainly a lot of people that wanted to do things that it didn't work out. i think that when you look at
some of the candidates that are announcing right now, i think they will end up being the losers. you've got a lot of people. 32 people, they say could, be with the democrats. let's see what happens, but i am really more interested in the winners and the winners are the people of the united states. >> pete: absolutely, sir. exit question here. 2019, any resolutions from you, mr. president, in this new year, or any predictions in the new year, or both? president trump: i think we're going to have a great form of wealth. we've created a lot of wealth for our country. and that's very important because that means jobs. it means prosperity. it means we can afford to do what we're doing with the military. we're working on tremendous trade deals. where other countries have taken advantage of us so badly. i campaigned on all of this stuff and really i'm producing better than i actually said even during the campaign that i would. if you look at what we've done, so i really think we're going to have tremendous success with trade deals.
i think we'll have a tremendously rebuilt military for strength and hopefully we'll never have to use our military. it will be so strong that we'll never have to use it and that would be a good thing. >> pete: mr. president i shouldn't say this but last year my resolution was to tweet more and it's the first resolution i've actually kept. do you have any resolutions for 2019, sir, any resolutions? president trump: just success and prosperity and health for our country. that's all i want. >> pete: absolutely. the president undeterred and optimistic about 2018. >> 2019. >> pete: oh, my goodness. >> it's okay. it's like 7:30 in the morning. pete will be on fox and friends very soon. much more to go. the best of the night is next. stay with us. fact is, every insurance company hopes you drive safely.
