3:13 pm
on the streets. we will put an end back to his power, said a transition of government in venezuela, and we want a free and fair election. >> bret: what happened to? last week there was this anticipation that this big protest and cult of the streets was going to lead to a lot of defections to from the maduro regime. elliot abrams said, looks as if all those people in the regime talking to guaido and his people frankly chickened out. it's planning meetings, it's another -- >> is that what happened to? we didn't get the support that we wanted. but we will get it. the most important thing in my view is that members of the inner circle of maduro, including military office
3:14 pm
officers, negotiating the exit of maduro. it's showing that this regime is collapsing, that this regime is not able to provide any kind of solutions to the venezuelans. so it's a matter of time. if we keep our determination, and we will on the street, and we increase the pressure, if we increase the pressure from the international community, i i dt have any doubt we will conquer freedom again. >> bret: there is by predators >> bret: there is bipartisan support in acknowledging that guaido is the president in the u.s. and other countries pfizer's eyes. a lot of countries around the globe recognize. but a lot of countries dog but still recognize maduro. the fear is, i think here at the u.s. if you take a look here, the u.s. is going to be drawn into a military situation. do you think that's going to happen?
3:15 pm
is that the wish for the opposition on the ground? >> the president has been very clear. if we keep the pressure on the street with the international community, we will reach a peaceful situation in venezuela. however. >> bret: however? >> yes, however. i must say that also that the most important latin american country, you know, they are just backing a solution in venezuela. also, we have most european countries with us. this is quite relevant. president guaido said he would explore other dumb like any other option in order to protect the venezuela and people under the principal responsibility to protect. we are not ceiling with a number regime, we are dealing with a
3:16 pm
criminal regime, a mafia that deals with drug trafficking, money laundering, and terrorist groups. we need to keep that in mind. >> bret: one of the countries that supported nicolas maduro and his regime is russia. here is the foreign minister sergey lavrov talking about this. >> venezuela is our old reliable partner and an irresponsible campaign has been lodged against a sovereign state, seeking to topple its legitimate government. we reiterate our solidarity with venezuela, its government, its president, and the venezuelan people. >> bret: is it true that maduro was ready to leave but russia convinced him to say and to fight the u.s.? >> i cannot comment on that. i have no detail. but i can tell you that the venezuelan situation, they have more confidence with the
3:17 pm
presence of cuba and russians. maybe he's not taking this decision on his own. we set a clear message to russia. we want to have a peaceful transition in venezuela. they have compounded the problem as well. they are supporting maduro in supporting the severity of the venezuelans. that all they are doing is supporting solve your 90 in venezuela >> bret: we saw this call for a regime leader to leave in syria, bashar al-assad. in light of the ministrations that his days were numbered. problem was we didn't know what the number was, and he's still in. is there going to be something soon can you believe, that changes this dynamic? >> i have no doubt that will come to freedom again. we have the democratic society united the next leadership of one point
3:18 pm
juan guaido. we have this hope that people are mobilizing in venezuela and will continue to put this pressure, we now understand that the leadership is looking for an exit of nicholas munro. including the military force. they are loyal until they aren't. we are pretty close. also we need to increase the pressure from the international community. so i'm fully confident. >> this is about your embassy here in washington. a new embassy. we recognize you as a legitimate government. "the washington post" set a piece that organizers with code pink, organization, saying the utility bills have been paid to the building but that the electricity is off, that the maduro that government had been paying. the group has been inside the embassy since april 10th at the invitation of the maduro government.
3:19 pm
venezuelan and venezuelan american protesters gathered outside and have not left sins. basically you have left-leaning protesters in the embassy here and you can't use it? >> they do not have legal authority to be there. as you know, we are in a very complex situation. and i've been following all the legal administer the procedures joining with the state department and secret service and i have all those papers, and i gave them the notification in order to proceed, to get back our embassy. >> is that going to happen? >> that's going to happen but i'm doing this very -- >> bret: methodically. >> yes. i'm following all the international and legal rules because i understand we are not in the regular situation. but in the end of the day we will get back our embassy and will be back there soon. >> we will follow up about the situation on the ground.

"mark's power is unprecedented and un-american. it's a time to break of facebook. mark is a good, kind person. but i'm angry he focused on growth, sacrificing security and stability for clicks." hughes said zuckerberg's desire for dominance shaped facebook into a company worth half a trillion dollars, takes up 80% of social media revenue worldwide. in the years since facebook acquired instagram and whatsapp, it's grown exponentially powerful and now poses a threat to american civil liberties union and national security. hughes says it's time for the government to step in.

>> i had no idea what was going to happen. i did last night in a very beautiful letter from president xi. let's work with each other, we've been losing $800 billion on trade. $800 billion! we are going to stop that. we've already started. >> we oppose the unilateral increase of terrorists. there is no winner in a trade war. it does not serve the interest of china, the u.s., the whole world. >> markets here in the u.s., globally, concerns about really this. in this meeting that's happening right now, just wrapping up,
3:39 pm
actually, the most important dinner in washington tonight. what happens with the u.s. and chinese trade negotiators, the chinese news agency's moving story saying that the chinese vice premier, says china believes raising tariffs not a solution to u.s. china problems. he's been saying that paris doesn't give us any indication what's happening behind closed doors. let's bring in our panel, start there. charles hurt, opinion editor for the washington "the washington times." amy stoddard, editor of real clear politics. met the content d, editor of "the washington free beacon" ." matthew, it seems like president trump is continuing to talk tough. doesn't seem like the chinese is re-figuring things. at least, not the indication we are getting at. >> there is a focus on the stock market, bret. in fact, there is more of this than the stock market. it's a fight over who defines the 21st century, the united states or china. in the midst of a trade war that began a couple of years ago, the
3:40 pm
trade war is just one component of a quickly emerging second cold war that has military dimensions, espionage dimensions, cyber dimensions, and ideological dimensions. this fight is just getting started, it's nowhere being concluded. >> bret: doesn't the president on capitol hill, ab, have the backing of his -- >> everything matthew has said is true and it's just a question of how long a game president trump can play. the political pressures and the timing of this, if you've noticed, the publicans on capitol hill about nafta in 2017 and about tariffs in 2018 were brought down the quiet in the discussions with the president. they met six months after the midterm elections, but senator grassley is talking to push back on section 232, the way you impose tariffs and international security criteria, the beginning of more public rumblings. now they are about to lose it.
3:41 pm
so the timing is right when we thought the chinese really wear at the table and then he threatened these new tariffs, now the deal really is falling apart. they are falling out of time on the electoral calendar. the farmers are hurting. the retaliatory tariffs on steel and aluminum against us are so devastating to political constituencies for publications that i think unless he brings the chinese back to the table, they are going to start to roll back this deal in aluminum tariffs. >> we are about five and a half hours away from the tariffs, 2.5 billion on chinese imports. >> if you read these statements from chinese officials, they make it very clear that these things do hurt. and that is, i think they probably -- nobody likes tariffs, or if you like free markets, you don't like tariffs. they are bad for china too. i talk to farmers a lot about
3:42 pm
this. and ab is right, they are taking it in shorts right now. it is across the country, enormous pain for them. at the same time, the next thing they say is that they also do want better markets. and this is what got donald trump elected. i think more than just about anything outside of immigration. this is an important issue. if donald trump can come up on the other end and make china squeal and get the uh, concessions that tribe quads, those farmers will be happy in the long run. >> bret: thank you for that. we'll put it in the lower third. speaking of that, i of iran is doing the same thing. president talking about iran and the tensions there.
3:43 pm
asked about it, going to be a military engagement. came back with this. >> what i'd see with iran, i'd like to see them call me. john kerry speaks with them a lot. john carey's tells them not to call. that's a violation of the logan act. frankly he should be prosecuted for that. he's had many phone calls and telling them what to do. >> bret: john kerry former secretary of state, former democratic nominee. his office released a statement saying everything that donald trump said today is wrong, end of story. bringing a nuclear agreement that solved the problem but we hope the president will focus on solving foreign policy problems instead of attacking his predecessors for theater. who is right here, matthew? speak i think there are concerns about some of the meetings that john kerry may have had with the iranian foreign minister. and the content of what those discussions were.
3:44 pm
this takes place in the context of iran really struggling under the latest round of sanctions, the designation of the irc as a terrorist organization. they are going to start spending the centrifuges again if europe doesn't play. that's nuclear blackmail, and exactly the reason why the letter states nafta deal a year ago this week. >> bret: before anybody knows, the logan act is whatever citizen indirectly or directly carries out correspondence or interest with the intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government of any other officer or agent thereof in relation to any disputes or controversies with the united states or defeats the measurement measures of the united states.
3:45 pm
it was mentioned about michael flynn and the president mentions it now. >> the president accused michael flynn in the transition of 2017 -- 2016, i'm sorry. >> bret: although he was in coming national security advisor. >> at the time he was accused of violating the logan act. this is obviously there have been discussions and they keep hearing about john kerry informing mike pompeo about his discussions still a major irritant to the president. but right now if you look across the board, the great news is that mr. shanahan is going to be the secretary of defense. he was nominated to be no longer acting after five months, three wars and to go other potential conflicts. that's really important that civility comes in. a report today that there was a secret meeting with the cia about iran with mike boynton,
3:46 pm
gina haspel, mike pompeo. we are not sure what the white house's message that they intentionally got out at the displeasure of john bolton's stands was the policy on iran is right now. the world is watching, the administration is to find a way to speak with one voice. they are being accused by democrats of provoking iran. >> bret: you are chuckling over there. >> but donald trump, he has a way that she likes to remind people who it was who got it in the right in the first place for that's why he likes to bring up john kerry. but he's always campaigning and i think he always understands that chinese and iran, they are both wondering wow, is this win elections, can we possibly wait them out? i think he instinctively understands that he wants this to be part of the next campaign. so he's campaigning on it right now. >> part of the message of john kerry and joe biden oversees is, hey, give us some
3:47 pm
time. it's going to be another democratic president soon. >> if that's not a violation of the logan act, i don't know what is. >> is not our behavior that's provocative, it's iran's behavior that is provocative. >> as he stands accused, he and his officials -- both of them provoking the iranians, i think they should have an answer about what the goal is. is it regime change? i think we should know soon. >> bret: we still don't know. this is going to be a lightning round for the next panel. but next up, 2020. joe biden veers left. gear. with a terrain management system for... this. a bash plate for... that. an electronic locking rear differential for... yeah... this. heading to the supermarket? get any truck. heading out here? get the ford ranger.
3:48 pm
the only adventure gear built ford tough. it's kind of unfair that safe drivers have to pay as much for insurance... as not safe drivers! ah! that was a stunt driver. that's why esurance has this drivesense® app. the safer you drive, the more you save. don't worry, i'm not using my phone and talking to a camera while driving... i'm being towed. by the way, i'm actually a safe driver. i'm just pretending to be a not safe driver. cool. bye dennis quaid! when insurance is affordable, it's surprisingly painless.
