tv Outnumbered Overtime With Harris Faulkner FOX News February 26, 2019 10:00am-11:00am PST
it's great drill down on specific policy. how to get young people the accurate training they need for the jobs. we have this huge gap. that is it for us. we are back on the couch tomorrow at noon eastern. here's harris! 31 let's go to work. fox news alert, president trump is in vietnam at of his high-stakes summit with north korean leader kim jong un. this is "outnumbered overtime," i'm harris faulkner. the president has arrived and i hanoi with the second summit with the dictator. whether kim's resume will give up its new their weapons. republican adam kinzinger, who sits on the house foreign relations committee, expects to see steps in the right direction parade watch. speak a lot of people want immediate response. i don't think we will get there to an immediate final solution to this whole thing. i think when it's all said and done, if you can walk out and say, "here's the new steps of god, here are promises from north korea," i think we will be in a better place.
>> harris: this top senate democrat on foreign relations, bob benitez, says like many in his party that they fear the president gives way more than he gets in return. >> i'm afraid what we will wind up with is a north korean state they will position itself on its way to lifting sanctions and receive very little in terms of ending, verifiably, north korea's nuclear program. >> harris: pontification, let's get the facts. coast of "america's newsroom," bill and bill hemmer joins me now from hanoi. bill? >> bill: good evening, it's after 1:00 in the money here. chairman kim arrived here 14 hours ago. both men are in their respective hotels for the night. harris, tomorrow you can expect the following to play out here in local in vietnam. president trump will spend the better part of his day meeting with the vietnamese president and the vietnamese government.
he will impress upon them the trade ties that the united states has with vietnam. he will also impress upon them the differences they have made within their own system to make this country so vibrant. still communists, but in a free market, almost capitalist system that they have developed here. under that program come over the past ten years, harris, vietnam has thrived. there will be a significant point. president trump will try and relay it to the koreans while he is here. meanwhile, chairman kim -- while that is happening, he will tour and industrialized zone about an hour outside of town. a zone that has been fueled by a lot of foreign investment from overseas that has helped turn the economy here in vietnam. later tomorrow evening, then we'll come face-to-face for the second time now and eight months. and they will sit down and have a dinner tomorrow night here in hanoi. it will be a day of meetings, messaging, and thursday morning they will kick off the
one-on-one contact that they will have here in hanoi, harris. we will see what we get from it. these are big complicated issues. but you could say, for the second time in eight months, at least you have a chance here to move the ball forward. >> harris: how much pressure is it, do you think, here on this administration to move forward with something more solid? a deal, more than what they got the first summit? >> bill: i think democrats on the left are already pushing that, the very thought, harris. the reality is this -- chairman kim has survived because he has nuclear weapons, and that's what he believes. if you believe the estimates, anywhere between 20 and 60 nuclear warheads in his possession, what will give him the incentive to surrender those weapons? what gives him the incentive to destroy nuclear reactors, to put a verification of inspectors on the ground in north korea? that is a big ask for them to go there when you consider his
grandfather started the nuclear program decades ago. for president trump, he said the missiles being fired and the tests are not being conducted. so he will go slow and not push for a quick return on his investment here. however, is an american president who has flown halfway around the world now for the second time in eight months -- if he doesn't move that ball forward as i mentioned a moment ago, he will in all likelihood see the sanctions that have now been in place, largely effective, one could argue, be tightened even more, harris. >> harris: i look forward to more scenes with you in hanoi. i've been following you on social media and on fox all day. that perspective -- this is your second time going to vietnam in that perspective. just a quick touch, if you can. what is it like on the streets of hanoi with this summit going on? >> bill: we came through here about 25 years ago, anxious to come back to see other people of change in how the country is changed. they are very pleased to know that their countries hosting this summit. they know they are on the world
stage. they want to put on a good show. they want to put on a safe show and show off their town. 25 years later, harris, this country and the city -- it is sprawling. it is a sprawling complex. the economy is vibrant. everyone, you see all those people on their motor scooters, harris. you can judge progress on roads and buildings on government policy, but they all have the smartphone. it's a remarkable thing to think they have access to almost the same information that we get. that, i believe, harris, is a revolution for this country and so many others. >> harris: we are connected. it's amazing. bill hemmer, we will see you tomorrow morning on "america's newsroom." thank you very much. on the east coast it is nine to noon. lee zeldin says on the house foreign affairs committee. decided to have them join me no now. the questions, congressman, but what to expect -- we will continue to come. what are you getting in your estimation, if not already, but
as you go into the summit? >> i expect progress, both nuclear and nonnuclear. there aren't any certainties. there is a possibility that there won't be as much progress as we want. while we talk about pressure on the united states and on the trump administration, it's actually a lot more pressure that is on kim jong un and the north koreans. the sanctions, the regime that exists right now, has been suffocating their economy. their government, their way of life. so i would expect progress. on the nonnuclear front, we have u.s. service members still to come home. there still hasn't been a formal end to the conflict on the peninsula. their relations between our countries that could be normalized more so than what we have seen. on the nuclear front, we need to see the nuclear program for north korea disappear. but he needs to be done in a way that is verifiable. what i expect sanctions release? absolutely. what is he willing to give up in
order to give at those release customer could pressure is more so on the north koreans at this point that it is on us. it puts president trump in a stronger position and with great advisors with him. i do expect progress. >> harris: do you think critics have a right to be concerned about how much we're giving away? we learned through a senior administration official that come in the white house, state department, dod, treasury, even energy -- they were expressing concern about where the special envoy to north korea, stephen biegun, is going in negotiation with north korean officials. >> i think it's fair to be concerned, whether you are president trump, his advisors, or maybe his staunchest critics. we don't want to give away more than we should. we also want to make sure that whatever we are getting in return is certainly verifiable as it relates to the nuclear regime. a lot of the people who are critical of this president have
decades -- they have made a career of making bad decisions as it relates to north korea. nuclear negotiations with other countries. so some of these critics have a horrible track record. what is most important is president trump and his team being as prepared as possible, negotiating from their position of strength, and understanding that whatever they give up they need to get more back in return. >> harris: i want to hear now from senator richard blumenthal, a democrat from connecticut. he's always very vocal about things that he is vocal about north korea. watch this. >> unless something fairly dramatic changes in the north korean strategy, they will be very little from this summit that is measurable in terms of progress. the testimony from our military leadership has been that the north koreans are intent on pursuing nuclear arms. something very dramatic is going to have to change for that strategy to change. there is no immediate prospect for that kind of dramatic
development. >> harris: congressman zeldin, whenever you hear that kind of talk i was wonder whether democrats have penned it may be an open letter to the president. what have they been done don't like doing to be helpful to put ids on the table? you sit on a critical committee. can you answer that? >> i think it's unfortunate we aren't hearing them talk about how much they are rooting for the president. >> harris: or just america. he's an american president. >> exactly. president trump's success is our success as americans with these negotiations. their efforts to undercut doesn't help strengthen president trump's position abroad. when he is engaging in these negotiations, if he knows that americans have their back, the north koreans know that americans have our presidents back with these negotiations, the president and his team are stronger for it. the preemptive undercutting of the strategy, and almost rooting for an unsuccessful summit, is coming across more so.
it's unfortunate. we have a responsibility as members of congress -- we certainly have domestic politics back home. but our job as members of congress isn't trying undercut this president just as much as what you might see in that segment from senator blumenthal. there's a lot of irony there, as president trump goes to vietnam where senator blumenthal claims that he once served heroically. i think these members of congress back home or watching on tv and getting opportunities to weigh and are educating the american public with their insight as to what the president should be the compass running, as opposed to giving out talking points of ways to undercut them on social media and try to build a moral position for 2020. i want president trump to be successful. >> harris: congressman lee zeldin of the great state of new york, good to see you. thank you for being here on a history making day. >> will these people be able to keep their health insurance plans, their private plans, through their employers, if there is a medicare for all program that you endorse? >> this business of liking your health insurance plan -- which, by the way, employers change
every single year -- people like their doctors. they like for hospitals. they like the care they are getting. our bill covers all conference of health. >> harris: he said we would be able to keep those doctors. vermont senator bernie sanders standing firm on his medicare for all proposal, saying that under it americans would not be able to keep private health insurance coverage keep it if wanted to. the democratic socialist and 2020 hopeful telling us cnn town all last night that health care should be a human right, but half of all americans reportedly get their health insurance through their employers. a recent gallup poll shows that most of them really like their plan. meanwhile, an eye-opening report on the controversial green new deal, which found the plan -- are you ready -- could cost as much as $93 trillion over just ten years. democratic senator ed markey, who cosponsored that proposal with new york congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez -- are you just saw there -- dismisses the report.
he tweeted this. "any so-called analysis of the green new deal that includes artificially inflated numbers that rely on lazy assumptions, including about policies that aren't even in the resolution, is bogus. putting a price on a resolution of principles and not policies is just big oil misinformation." doug mckelway with the information in washington. doug? >> there's a different side to that story, harris. this first serious attempt to analyze with the green new deal would cost comes from the american action forum headed by the former director of the congressional budget office. it finds that the proposal would cost $94 trillion over ten years. to put that in perspective, it's roughly $600,000 for every household in the united states. >> it bothers me, because either the authors of these proposals can do arithmetic and put them out anyway, or they can't. and the latter is even more terrifying. >> of the american action forum analysis is a modest interpretation, they say come up
with the green new deal with cost. it includes the price tag of giving all american health care, a job with benefits, housing, and food. that does not include the massive expansion of bureaucracy that it would require. and that prompted republican senator john cornyn to treat a quote from benito mussolini. "we were the first to assert that the more complicated the forms assumed by civilization, the more restricted the freedom of the individual must become." that "misinterpretation" of what it meant, from representative across cortez. "in case you missed it, while they are calling paying a living wage of socialism, a republican quoted benito mussolini like it's a hallmark card." he fired back at that quote. "maybe one of the most uninformed opinions i have seen in ours." meantime, will cost is defending her ambitious proposal.
>> people would like, "it's unrealistic, it's vague, it doesn't address this little minute thing." and i'm like, "you try! you do it!" because you're not. because you are not. until you do it, i'm the boss. >> many more senior democrats are taking increasing on branch of the freshman congressman's bravado, especially those who have been working on the carbon reduction proposals that are not as unrealistic. harris? >> harris: she told dianne feinstein, "you've had 30 years working on this by yourself." she was cooking in the kitchen when she said that wasn't enough. interesting. doug mckelway, thank you very much. coming up, the power panel will slide in on the controversy surrounding the green new deal ahead of a possible senate vote this week. dan heninger, judy miller, they will join me at the bottom of the hour. stay close. an eye-popping new poll shows more americans say the u.s. is viewed positively worldwide than
in any time in the recent 16 years. in a new gallup survey, 58% say they believe the u.s. is viewed favorably by the rest of the globe. just 41% say the world views us unfavorably. the big change in perception since last year was among independents, an 8% jump. neither republicans or democrats have budged. former trump attorney michael cohen arriving for the first of three hearings on capitol hill this week, where he reportedly will testify that president trump broke the law while in office. the white house says congress already knows cohen cannot be trusted. i add this line -- he is a criminal lawyer. a live report ad, plus the house expected to vote today to revoke president trump's emergency declaration for border wall funding. it could set up a tough vote for some senate republicans, so what's next in the show down? >> this emergency declaration will be upheld, even if it makes its way through the senate.
hopefully it doesn't get past the senate. ultimately, we are going to stand with the president in making sure we can secure this border and confront this national crisis. ♪ i can't believe it. that we're playing "four on four" with a barbershop quartet?

closed doors before the senate intelligence committee. tomorrow, he will testify publicly before the house oversight committee, where he reportedly will accuse the president of criminal conduct while in office. but house press secretary sarah sanders is heading back, saying, "disgrace to fill in michael cohen is going to prison for lying to congress in making other false statements. sadly, he will go before congress this weekend we can expect more of the same. it's laughable that anyone would take a convicted liar like: con as word, and pathetic to see them given you another opportunity to spread his lies." chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live on capitol hill. a strum behind you, this is going on. what's going on? >> that's right, harris. michael cohen has been behind closed doors in what is called a skiff, or secure facility, for about three hours answering questions for members and staff of the committee. you can take a bit of a walk with me and see we got the stakeout position for this is
where the, after they've finished talking with cohen. just be on the bright lights there, further down the wall of the double doors prayed that is a secure facility. the focus republicans and democrats today is why cohen lied during his testimony in october 2017 about the status of a trump tower real estate project in moscow. he testified that the discussions ended in january of 2016, but the special counsel found apparently that the discussions continued until june. so that was a lie. they prosecuted: about that. lawmakers want to know why he lied paid because the underlying act itself, a business transaction, is not a criminal action. they want to know if he did it on his own initiative or that he was directed to do so. republicans, for the most part, have told reporters this morning that they have credibility questions about cohen because he is now a convicted liar. and they also don't know whether
there may be new revelations in the testimony today. here is john cornyn. >> we have talked to over 200 witnesses. we have been having these hearings and interviews for two years now. i think between us and the mueller investigation, that we are going to find out just about everything there is to find out about these allegations. so far, there is not much -- if anything -- to show for it. >> come took a rather secured route to get up to the secure room this morning. he was able for the most part to avoid reporters. he came in through the basement come up a freight elevator, and then the short corridor to the scif. what's important here is that democrats increasingly are focusing on issues related to the money trail and not so much the allegations of russia collusion. here is senator ron wyden. >> most of you know, my big interest has been in the "follow the money" issues.
but what i intend to keep focused on is untangling the very complicated financial arrangement between donald trump and russia. >> the focus of today's closed-door session with the senate intelligence committee's russia. tomorrow, as you mention, harris, we will have the public testimony from cohen. that bifurcated the issues. it looks premier li had issues that have grown out of the case in the southern district of new york, and then again on thursday. house intelligence will be russia-related issues. that will be behind closed doors again, harris. >> harris: catherine, thank you very much pretty set me up perfectly for my next guest. james trusty, former justice department prosecutor and law partner. good to see you. i want to start with what has changed about anything that michael cohen would tell lawmakers on the hill when it comes to truthfulness. have a lie detector ten? that's not really a verb. what have we done to make sure
he's telling the truth this time? >> there is no perfect way to do that. it's a very different kind of forum when he appears particularly in public hearings with congress, as opposed to cross-examination you might see it in a courtroom. there is no magic to it. he put his finger on one thing, which is that you have to contextualize and look at the overall picture as best you can. and then recognize that there are some serious credibility baggage for mr. cohen. apparently enough baggage to give federal prosecutors from giving him credit as a cooperator. speed when you've heard from catherine herridge's reporting moments ago that democrats want to know why cohen lied about a business transaction. was he directed to? he lied. he made the decision to live. he tape-recorded his client surreptitiously. even they couldn't trust him. they just know that they couldn't trust him at the time. where'd you put his testimony? >> he is a spectacularly unsuccessful cooperator. he tried to cooperate at the expense of the president come
maybe some others. i think the experienced prosecutors on the mueller team looked at it and said, "the only movie could put this guy in a courtroom or rely on them as if we had some smoking gun corroboration. some recording, some email. it doesn't seem that they have that. when you get down to asking questions in congress about, "why did you like," you're at the mercy of his own story. i don't know that there is any smoking gun way to resolve whether he is telling the truth or not, so you fall back on the bigger issues that he brings to the table by way of bad credibility. >> harris: i want you to watch something with me. representative walking castro, democrat in texas, says he thinks there could be legal consequences for president trump after michael cohen testifies. watch. >> i want to know whether the president directly told him to lie to congress in his testimony. i think there could be legal consequences and ramifications for the president after michael cohen comes to congress and tells us everything that he knows.
>> harris: james, as you just pointed out, the only way we will know why he lied is for him to tell everybody that. yet we don't have anything to cooperate that, except for what he says. >> yeah, look at the end of the day there's going to be people that want to hear certain things. they want to believe certain things. maybe others that are too quick to dismiss. he certainly is a bad guy with credibility, but even a stopwatch is right twice a day. he might have some information that is right. but launching a criminal case or even an impeachment on the back of his credibility doesn't seem like a particularly realistic strategy. to be when i interviewed the president a couple months ago and he told me that -- it was apprising him to say this, but i had heard it before -- but he made a mistake when he hired michael cohen. he knew he was a fixer, there were problems with cohen. as you go for it, he's going to get a delay for going to prison now. he is recovering from some sort of shoulder surgery.
he doesn't go until may. as michael cohen benefit from any of this? the sea make his case better for less prison time? is mueller watching customer what you say about this? >> i think this ship has sailed, harris. he's got his sentencing taken place, he knows what he's going to serve. there's no legal mechanism for him to get a reduction. this is really more court of public opinion, and perhaps firing back at people he's not real happy with. but it's not going to have an effect in terms of his legal case unless there is a complete miracle by the mueller team reconsidering his credibility. which i would not expect. >> harris: james trusty with us today, legal expert. thank you so very much. >> sure. thanks, harris. >> harris: a hostage no more in yemen. the moves by the trump administration to help bring home an american husband and father. plus, the democrats waging war on the president's emergency declaration. the big move expected today as a vote. can they block it?

or call 1-855-newdayusa >> harris: a stunning development in iran. that country's has suddenly resigned. reports that his resignation would help "restore the ministry to its legal position in foreign relations." the diplomat was a leading figure behind the 2015 iran nuclear deal which is on the verge of collapse after president trump pulled the united states out of the accord last year. a texas man who was held hostage for 18 months inside yemen is free. the president announced yesterday, danny burch had been recovered and reunited with his family. he was an engineer working at a yemen oil company in 2017 when he was kidnapped. lucas tomlinson on the story, live from the pentagon. lucas, this is an amazing story. >> it sure is, harris. officials tell me that
danny burch's rescue was a peaceful turnover led by emirate forces. no u.s. troops were involved. it's believe he was abducted by iranian backed fighters in yemen's capital city and 2017. secretary of state mike pompeo says he is now safe and secure. "the united states expresses our deep gratitude to the united arab emirates. its people and its leadership, in facilitating the release of mr. birch. his family's request to privacy as they recover from this ordeal. the safety and well-being of americans remains one of the highest priorities of the trump administration. "he married a yemen national after divorcing his first wife, and lived there for years. danny burch had worked for a many oil company when he was kidnapped and brought delight daylight in 2017. president trump said danny burch is the 20th hostage recovered when he took office. "danny's recovery reflects the best of what the united states and its partners can a compass. we will not rest as we work to
bring the remaining mega hostages back home." more than a dozen remain captive around the world, including an american phd candidate from princeton university. 1 of 5 known americans are held in iran. all accused of spying. the state department because the chart is bogus and demand they are released. her wife spoke to our colleague jennifer griffin "his only crime is being an american." >> harris: thank you, lucas, for the information on that. the democrat-controlled houses expected to vote block the emergency declaration. we have been keeping you a present owned by moment if we ie poster. it's expected to sales of the lower chamber and cut a set up a tough vote for some set of republicans. so far, here's the list to say they will block the president. senator susan collins, lisa murkowski, and tom thom tillis say they will vote to block the declaration. meaning, just one more
republican yes from them would force the president to have to veto the measure. right now, vice president pence is meeting with senate republicans to shore up support for the president. joining me now, republican congressman jody who sits on the house oversight committee. why do you have to shore up republicans to support a republican president on this? >> that's a good question, harris. i think of the end of the day the issue for many is the separation of powers. which i fully understand. but that is really a different issue. the reality is that in 1976 congress gave the executive branch the authority to have emergency declarations. as we all know, many of those have been put in place over the decades. president trump is well within his legal authority to do so. if we want to deal with the separation of powers issues, that is certainly something that needs to be discussed. for him to do what he is doing for the southern border, he is
totally in line. >> harris: should the president have just declared an emergency before all this back and forth? before even putting three bipartisan attempted answer that had a little money for the border wall? >> he certainly could have. there are many who believe that would have been a better way to go. the bottom line is that he didn't, and either way, he still has the authorization to declare the national emergency now. we absolutely have an emergency on the border. i fully support him in that. this is something that we've got to address. >> harris: how will you vote? >> i'm going to stand with the president on this. there is no question on my mind that we have an authentic emergency in the border. with hundreds of thousands of criminals who have been apprehended there. we've got 90% of opiate drugs coming across our southern border. i believe it's 2017, 17,000 americans die just in that one year from drug overdose. yes, the sexual assaults -- on and on and on. there's no question that we have an emergency that needs to be
dealt with. i fully support the president in this action. >> harris: republican senator tom tillis wrote an op-ed of north carolina. he said he will vote against the president's national emergency. here's what he wrote. "as a u.s. senator, i cannot justify providing the executive with more ways to bypass congress. as a conservative, i cannot endorse the precedent that no future left-wing presidents will exploit to erode freedoms." and to say what, congressman gus to >> he certain has a right to his opinion and he has a right, probably, to find another job in north carolina. the bottom line is, the issue is that congress gave the authority to the executive branch to do this. even president obama declared a national emergency relating to the southern border, as well. this is nothing new. the issue here -- let's be honest -- the issue is who is in the white house. the democrats are going after president trump because they despise president trump. other presidents have done this,
and the president certainly has the authority to do it. i support him in doing it. the separation of powers issue, i would fully support screening that back in as well. but that would require some legislative action dealing with that particular bill. i would support doing that as well. >> harris: that's interesting. so moving forward you would say, "if you do this and democrats want to do this if they are in power moving forward, by kimberly," you are concerned about that >> i would work with them. i think this is a legitimate issue that ought to be dealt with the fact is the president has the authorization under current law to do this, and other presidents have done it. we need to support the president and what i believe is an authentic emergency on the southern border. >> harris: this is an emergency food. we are watching to see what happens per the president not on u.s. soil as we will find out which members of his own party may go against him if that list gets long enough to block him.
of course, then he has the option to veto, as you have said. congressman jody heise of the great state of georgia, thank you for joining me today. >> thank you, harris. good to be with you. >> harris: stranded on the track. amtrak. a train, traveling the west coast, hit a fallen tree. passengers trapped for more than a day. the status of the rescue effort. right now, a life report. ♪ okay, max...time to help mrs. tyler

mean, it just the last little while -- finally moving again after being stranded for more than 30 hours. the train stopped moving sunday night after colliding with a fallen tree. dan springer in seattle with the story. dan, this is unbelievable. >> you have to really feel for these people, don't you come harris? the train is moving again, but slowly. so slowly, like two or 3 miles an hour. and amtrak official tells me it's following a snowplow on the tracks as it is pulled back to eugene by another engine. it was stuck with 183 passengers and a dozen crewmembers for 36 hours in oakridge, oregon. about 40 or 45 miles southeast of eugene. on a journey that actually started in seattle. get this, sunday morning. a lot of people have been on this train for the most a few days now. it was supposed to end up in los angeles. the area got hammered with a near-record snow storm, more than a foot of snow fell in oak ridge, which sits on the foothills of the cascade mountains. that heavy wet snow weighed down
trees and one fell on the tracks causing damage to the train when it struck it. so many trees fell on power lines, in fact, the entire town was without power and may not have it restored for a week, we are told. amtrak officials made the decision that, since the train had power, it was better to keep the passengers on board. so they sat and waited. initially the true doughnut crew tried to repair the train, but that didn't work. union pacific, who owns the tracks, had to clear a path to get an engine to the stock train. this morning the engine reached the train and began pulling it back to eugene. before that, passengers were posting their ordeals to social media and we heard about a shortage of food. some parents running out of diapers. >> they did an announcement that they are making diapers for some of the kids that are on the train. they are not telling us anything except that we can't get off. >> once in eugene later today, passengers can get off and get some food, stretch their legs.
amtrak says the train will be there about an hour before another one with those passengers has up to portland and eventually back to seattle. those passengers will get full refunds and we are told other appropriate compensation. i don't know how you can compensate for three days on a train. >> harris: that is mine-popping. dan, thank you very much. a new report reviewed the setting price tag for the green new deal. but one 2020 hopeful has dismissed any concerns about the cash. the power panel, next. ms. good as a fitness junkie, i customize everything -

>> dana: hi, everyone. i'm dana perino. senator lindsey graham joins me at the top of the hour to talk about a brand-new report on fighting extremism. i will also ask them about the vote on the national emergency. plus, what we are learning about michael cohen's testimony on capitol hill, and do you think you pay too much for prescription drugs? big pharma executives are getting grilled right now about their pricing practices. we've got the highlights on "the daily briefing" ." >> harris: $93 trillion. that's how much a new report says congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez's green new deal could cost over just ten years. the report is being met with skepticism by one of the coauthors, but just this weekend, 2020 hopeful kamala harris also dismissed concerns about the price tag.
>> of course we can afford it. it's not about a cost, it's about an investment. the question should be, is it worst? the cost come in terms of the investment potential? will get back more than he put in? >> harris: they are starting to sound the same. the power panel. dan henniker, "wall street journal" editorial page to be edited. judy miller, adjunct fellow at the manhattan institute for policy research. in pulitzer prize winning both, fox's contributor's. how do you sell $93 trillion and then you have to kind of safe it's not true, what is? >> democrats putting a spin on it like to say that she's just floating the idea. she is giving us a goal. she is mobilizing thought about -- >> harris: you know you sell my customer nancy pelosi from house speaker! >> welcome as she calls it, the green dream or whatever they call it. that's what nancy pelosi said of aoc's idea.
look -- this is clearly catnip for the millennials. they believe that climate change is the key issue. it may very well be for them. but this is where the democratic party is heading. aoc is leading that drift leftward. bernie sanders was really radical in 2016. now all of the other candidates, or most of them come are filling in behind him. she is onto something. you cannot ignore it. >> harris: dan, before you speak up, here is tucker carlson last night explained how he thinks she became the boss of the democratic party. >> come well, for the last two years, democrats a been very distracted. they have spent all of their time hating donald trump. and none of their time thinking about what they would do if they ever took charge, as they just did in the congress last november. lucky for them, someone had a plan. she was a 29-year-old bartender from the bronx and she showed up
with a brand-new democratic platform already written. she imposed it on her party. it's called the green new deal. >> harris: my kids and i watch a lot of cartoons and i hear that [screeching noise] where the cartoon character tries to slow down the dirt. what that gives this customer affect the direct quote. there are some who don't see this way. dianne feinstein, maybe a little concerned about the price tag and the vision. >> some of them are. one may ask of what is the thinking begin and said the democratic party? i thought what you just showed was interesting and in some ways a significant event. she's running from the for the presidency of the united states. she's running with a cd of that will cost $3 trillion. "we can afford it, it's an investment." this is not a serious stand by presidential candidate. she would never touch yourself to a number like that. what it shows is -- "the new york times" had a very interesting story yesterday
about democratic members of congress just reelected representing districts that trump carried in 2016 out in utah, pennsylvania, virginia. and their constituents are saying to them, "what is it about all this free stuff? what is it about the anti-semitism of the democratic party? are you on board for this?" so there's pushback out of the country. >> right. bernie sanders my have lost the bid for the animation, but is winning the ideological war in the party. and they will be a nightmare for democratic main stream candidates. >> harris: yc when i got ideological war? >> because you've had the greatest income to spread in this country going up and up since the 1970s. because people are now employed and have jobs, they feel insecure and they have right to be. they are looking for a radical new solutions. >> harris: they feel insecure now that they are more jobs than ever? >> but you have to have two of them to equal what they use to -- >> harris: i wrote down what you said. "catnip for the millennials."
