7:00 pm
fact. the cascade is coming. the avalanche will be here, let not your heart be troubled. we'll never be part of the destroyed media, rage media mob. we'll be fair and balanced, and live from paris tonight with an interview with the president, let not your heart be troubled, laura ingraham. >> laura: we saved you some cafe coffee. i'll bring it back to you on the plane tonight. this morning. you travel a lot, everything blurs into everything else. you have no idea what time it is, when to eat, when to sleep. >> sean: what time is it? >> laura: it's 4:00, they tell me, in the morning. >> sean: i hate to tell you, when you go to singapore and vietnam, i go to the show at 9:00 a.m. and i stay on east coast time, like putting the shades down. they think i'm nuts. but it works. >> laura: great show adds always tonight. >> sean: i saw some of the interview, congratulations. >> laura: thank you so much. i'm laura ingraham and this is "the ingraham angle."
7:01 pm
coming to you from paris. in just moments you'll see my exclusive interview with president trump where he reflects on the sacrifices made by the greatest generation. 75 years ago today. hard to believe but he also addresses the shocking threat reportedly coming from nancy pelosi. unbelievable. the economic impact of tariffs against mexico and the cozy and possibly dangerous relationship warming up between russia and china. but first, a day of remembrance, as we conclude this 75th anniversary of the d-day invasion here in france. we'll always remember the countless stories of sacrifice and valor displayed on those beaches. yet it's also supremely important to recall what american troops were fighting against and for. >> the lives that they gave, sacrifice that they made did not just win a battle. it did not just win a war.
7:02 pm
those who fought here won a future for a nation. they won the survival of our civilization. >> laura: allied forces were battling to protect their homeland for sure. and against an evil ideology. nazism. now, some forget that the word nazi stood for national socialism where the state controls the means of production and distribution. now, advancing this system required state control of much more including speech, thought, entire economies. people enslaved and subjugated. millions upon millions killed. now, the only way for naziism to succeed was for hitler to invade and conquer country after country. of course, the people residing with them. and for a time, he succeeded, until the west led by churchill, fdr, and with the help and
7:03 pm
dedication of the citizens of england, america, and our other allies, drew a line in the sand on the beaches of normandy. now, eventually freedom won and socialism, the brutality of it, lost. the unspeakable atrocities carried out under hitler and hemler arose not out of thin air, but from an evil ideology that they believed justified those horrors. as churchill said socialism is a philosophy of failure. the creed of ignorance and the gospel of envy. and as -- had it right when he said this, those who can't remember the past are condemned to repeat it. the d-day invasion was the largest amphibious assault ever attempted and the cost and blood was devastating, but the failure, no, that was not an option.
7:04 pm
president trump: it was here that tens of thousands of the americans came, the g.i.'s, who boarded the landing craft that morning, knew that they carried on their shoulders not just the pack of a soldier, but the fate of the world. colonel george taylor, whose 16th infantry regiment would join in the first wave, was asked what would happen if the germans stopped? right then and there, hold on the beach, just stopped them what would happen? this great american replied, why the 18th infantry is coming in right behind us, the 26th infantry will come on, too. then there is the second infantry division, already afloat, and the ninth division

7:05 pm
and the second armored, and the third armored, and all the rest. maybe the 16th won't make it. but someone will. >> laura: that can do attitude, or as queen elizabeth called it, the resilience. help the good guys win the second world war, and long after today's pomp and ceremony has faded, it will be up to new generations to repel, to recognize, and destroy the new evils that threaten our god-given right to live free and here's my exclusive interview with president trump from normandy on this historic day. >> laura: mr. president, thank you so much for being here with us today. 75th anniversary of the d-day landing. you've had by all accounts an incredible trip. what lessons will you take back home after this day and your meeting with the queen and trip to ireland?
7:06 pm
president trump: first, the meeting with the queen was incredible. i think i can say to know her because i sat with her many times and we had automatic chemistry. you understand that feeling, it's a good feeling but she's a spectacular woman. and the people i met, i met so many veterans. people have seen it, days like no one else, and they are just really incredible people. >> laura: feeling this beautiful weather, it was raining last night, the weather broke, imagining the invasion, 150,000 allied troops climbing the cliffs, landing on these shores, what's going through your mind? president trump: this is weather like they don't normally have. this was supposed to be today a storm. it's a little like the invasion itself. the weather was a big factor. they delayed it a day and it worked out okay. you look at the weather we have. we have beautiful weather and it's been this way wherever i've been. we've been now for 3 1/2 days,
7:07 pm
and it's like, i'm saying this, it's pretty beautiful but it can be pretty rough. >> laura: after having met all of these world war ii veterans, this entire experience, what do you tell the american people about the importance of this history and our shared ideals? president trump: that there was never a more important battle. there was never a more important event than the event 75 years ago today, think, these were incredible brave people who were just being blown up, and you have the graves all over. these were people that knew they were going to die. it was horrendous. the bravery. the valor, we're giving out medals today. we're giving out medals to certain people in certain families. this was one of the true, in terms of war, in terms of probably, you could also say in terms of peace, because this led to something very special, this was a very, very horrific day but it was also a very special day and it's an honor to be
7:08 pm
here. >> laura: two years ago, the so-called experts, foreign policy experts, were predicting that you would fracture nato, america would become isolationists. what do you say to those experts today? president trump: those are the people that failed so badly and i haven't really gone to them. i know them. i've read them. i've seen what their result was and it was terrible. nato was going down and if you look at the money coming into nato for the last 15 years it was escalating down and now it's like a rocket ship up. secretary sallen berg has been maybe trumpest biggest fan. he said without donald trump maybe there would be no nato. we've got condition over a hundred billion dollars from other countries where they are starting to pay because it got to a point where we were paying so much. i think we were really paying close to a hundred percent of nature toe. we were paying to protect all
7:09 pm
these nations and it just wasn't fair. i told the heads of countries, it's not fair. the u.n. possibly doesn't even benefit. you could make the case, certainly in this age, we're not benefiting, certain not like them. they paid over a hundred billion dollars more toward their defense. that's money we don't have to pay. >> laura: -- was praising you yesterday for the burden sharing, basically about time. president trump: she was so nice but they are all saying it and they are stepping up. i would say germany has not stepped up much. they are paying 1%, they should be paying much more. think of it. 1%, so we protect germany and then germany takes advantage of us on trade. i was with merkel a lot yesterday. i like her a lot. a lot of people think we don't have a good relationship, we do, and she even smiles, when i say, look, tough to pay, she said, for years, they got away with this and it's unfair and they are not getting away with it. >> laura: what about her dig when you were at harvard. president trump: what did she
7:10 pm
say? >> i want to wish this wish with you, tear down the walls of ignorance and narrow-mindedness for nothing stays as it is. president trump: she has to say what she has to say. she took a pretty tough election a couple of days ago. but i like her. i get along with her but i said you have to pay and most of the nations are now either current or very close to current and that's a tremendous -- it's over a hundred billion dollars in a very short period of time. >> laura: mexico tariffs, big news back home, some senate republicans are a little worried about this, especially economic effects. what must mexico do? what can they do to stem this massive tide, 140,000 people in may? president trump: when you're the piggy bank that everybody steals and robs from and they deceive you, like they have been doing for 25 years, tariffs are a beautiful thing. it's a beautiful word if you know how to use them properly. republicans should love what i'm doing because, i do tariffs in two phases.
7:11 pm
number one, it's great to negotiate with because they don't want to be tariff # coming into the united states, and number two, you can make a fortune because all the companies are going to move back into the country. >> laura: isn't this congress's fault, so why does it seem like mexico is bearing the brunt? president trump: they are letting millions of people walk up through their country and they shouldn't let anybody walk up through their country. frankly, we shouldn't even have to have border patrol. border patrol is doing incredibly. they apprehended over a hundred thousand people -- >> laura: 140,000 in may. president trump: what they are doing, and by the way that's not even close to a record because if you go back 13, 14 years ago, it was crazy numbers, but i don't want this. i want people to come in legally. we want the people that we want and i want -- we shouldn't have anybody, they shouldn't be able to walk through mexico and now i've told mexico, if you don't stop this onslaught this invasion, people get angry when i use the word invasion, people like nancy pelosi, that honestly, they don't know what the hell they are talking about.
7:12 pm
i watched her, she was saying, we have to protect mexico, we have to take care of mexico. look, i'm dealing with mexico right now, they send in $500 billion worth of drugs. they kill a hundred thousand people. they ruin a million families. every year. if you look at it, that's really an invasion without the guns. >> laura: are you worried about how this might affect the usmca, another historic trade -- president trump: they need us. they stole 32% of our car business with nafta. the stoop ittest deal, one of the stupidest deal of our time. they stole 32,000 -- they have 32%. >> laura: they are an important ally of the united states? one of our most important trading partners. president trump: fine. and yet they send in $500 billion worth of drugs. we'll never do that kind of trade. they send in drugs, illegal drugs, $500 billion, a hundred
7:13 pm
thousand people are killed, dead, every year from what comes through our southern border. they shouldn't be allowing people to come through their country from el salvador and honduras and they walk right into our country. >> laura: coming up, part two of my interview with president trump and others here to break it all down for us, and later, raymond arroyo talks to some army rangers who scaled the same cliffs. these heroes did. 75 years ago. stay there.

7:15 pm
7:16 pm
7:17 pm
those who sacrificed everything, we heard two very moving but somewhat different speeches from both president trump and french president emmanuel macron. now, macron's speech was interwove within some international themes as he addressed the united states directly and even talked about what makes us great. >> we know what we owe to the united states of america. the united states of america, donald trump, the president, which is never greater than when it is fighting for the freedom of others. >> laura: but trump, while of
7:18 pm
course recognizing the importance of the alliance, also stressed the importance of the nation-state itself. president trump: the fierce patriotism of a free, proud and sovereign people. [applause] president trump: they battled, not for control and domination, but for liberty, democracy, and self rule. they were sustained by the confidence that america can do anything. >> laura: macron stayed away from addressing really, or thanking the almighty, but it was extremely, extremely emotional and moving. he kept it all pretty secular. >> described in the countryside of france, a reminder of what our country owes the united states of america. >> their presence, resume, sent an invitation to continue to renew the secular pact that
7:19 pm
unites france, the united states of america, and freedom. >> laura: trump picked up the religious cadences of fdr and eisenhower. president trump: we're a noble nation with a virtuous people, praying to a righteous god. the great deeds of an army came from the great depths of their love, as they confronted their faith, the americans of the allies, placed themselves into the palm of god's hand. >> laura: my gosh, we were all bawling. unbelievable. joining me now with reaction to today's incredible events, in my exclusive interview with president trump, is ari fleisher, former white house press secretary, fox news contributor molly hemingway, and allen dershowitz. harvard law professor emeritus. he also wrote the forward of the
7:20 pm
published version of the mueller report. it was so moving on so many levels, it's hard to put into words after this day and after this week, this trip to england, with the queen and ending today. yet there were striking differences between the two leaders' approaches. your thoughts. >> you know, it was so moving because america is moving. the history of our country is so great, so uplifting, and -- we have solved so many of the world's problems and an event like this brings it all home because of the sacrifice and the loss of life. but that's america's story. it always has been. america loves presidents that are good at telling that story and reminding us. why? because it feels so good to be an american. >> laura: molly, when we were wrapping this up and leaving normandy, as we were making our way through the little villages, we keep thinking, if the walls could talk here, imagining u.s.
7:21 pm
gi's crawling in the darkness with broken compasses, not being able to locate each other. we all said we were so lucky to be american citizens living in our country. your thoughts after this historic day? >> i'm so glad that so many americans have taken the occasion today to think about the sacrifices of so many of our men and allied men who did something that just is almost incomprehensible. it's also wonderful to hear a speech like we heard today. there is, not just something about this location, but it is that sacrifice of these men that inspires presidents to give great speeches. i think reagan's speech on the 40th anniversary is perhaps his best speech of many great speeches, and today's speech was so well crafted, and a really nice way to honor so many people. there were multiple points which moved me to tears thinking about some of the men who were there 75 years ago, and back there today. there is something, you know, you hope that each generation has what that generation had,
7:22 pm
and it is nice to see younger people honoring and remembering their great sacrifice. >> laura: alan, i think when we look back on this time, this era, with all the changes in the world over the last 75 years, we have to remember what the troops were fighting against, which i started the show with, which was, we wanted our freedom, our liberty, protect the homeland, help our allies, but it was against this evil ideology of naziism, in what it did to people and lands and countries. >> i'm so proud of every american who participated in world war ii. particularly proud of my family members, several of whom served with distinction and honor in the united states army. remember, we did not have to go and invade europe. the american safety and security was not at risk from the west. we had been attacked from japan but we had not been attacked from germany. this was not a war of choice
7:23 pm
because we were attacked, but it was an invasion of choice, and our president and our leaders, eisenhower, and roosevelt, made a decision to sacrifice many, many american young men in order to save france and save britain and safe europe and save so many people that we didn't have to do, and i was very moved by the show of appreciation that european leaders have appropriately made toward the united states. they should appreciate what we did. it was a great sacrifice, and it really saved the world from the horrors of nazism. >> laura: ariel, i want to get your reaction to an article in today's "washington post." "trump's words on d-day are at odds with his actions. president trump spoke the right words in commemorating the 75th anniversary of d-day but did he mean them?" what of that? >> it was an amazing speech, and
7:24 pm
they still have to criticize him. i have never seen anything like this. i mean, we're going to get into all the little, you know, distortions, but, your thoughts. >> the word resistance, which is what the democrats and some in the media pride themselves on, resistance to trump, stems from resistance by the free french to the nazis and that's the same thing now. they shouldn't use the word resistance and they shouldn't resist. there are at least two days a year when they should knock it off. one is memorial day and the second is maybe the day the president goes over to france to d-day to commemorate the 75th. just praise the president. you don't have to knock him all the time. >> laura: panel, stay with me for part two of my exclusive interview coming up. find out what he really thinks on a lot of issues including the politics at home, plus why the president believers joe biden is just not getting it on china. you don't want to miss this. my experience with usaa has been excellent. they really appreciate the military family
7:25 pm
and it really shows. with all that usaa offers why go with anybody else? we know their rates are good, we know that they're always going to take care of us. it was an instant savings and i should have changed a long time ago. it was funny because when we would call another insurance company, hey would say "oh we can't beat usaa" we're the webber family. we're the tenney's we're the hayles, and we're usaa members for life. ♪ get your usaa auto insurance quote today. ♪ as a doctor, i agree with cdc guidance. i recommend topical pain relievers first... like salonpas patch large. it's powerful, fda-approved to relieve moderate pain, yet non-addictive and gentle on the body. salonpas. it's good medicine. hisamitsu.

7:29 pm
>> laura: it's about 4:28 in the morning here in paris. welcome back to "the ingraham angle." now more of my exclusive interview with president trump. >> laura: nancy pelosi as we were walking up to the stage earlier, she said some pretty harsh things over the last 24 hours, leaked out from her caucus. i don't want impeachment, i want him in prison. meaning you. what do you think? president trump: i think she's a disgrace. i don't think she's a talented person. i've tried to be nice to her because i would have liked to have gotten some deals done. she's incapable of doing deals. she's a nasty,vin dick active hobbs person, mueller report came out, it was a disaster for them. they thought their good friend bobby mueller was going to give them a great report and he came out with a report with 13 horrible, angry democrats who were totally biased against me. a couple of them worked for hillary clinton. they then added five more, also democrats. with all of that, 2 1/2 years, think of it, from before i even
7:30 pm
got elected, they have been going after me, and they have nothing. >> laura: do you find if he testifies, you said before you didn't care? president trump: he made such a fool of himself. what people don't report is the letter he had to do to straighten out his testimony because his testimony was wrong. but nancy pelosi, i call her nervous nancy, she doesn't talk about it. nancy pelosi is a disaster, okay? she's a disaster, and let her do what she wants. you know what? i think they are in big trouble because when you look at the kind of crimes that were committed, i don't need any more evidence and i guess from what i'm hearing there is a lot of evidence coming in. and then ask nancy, why is her district have drugs and needles all over the place? it's the most disgusting thing what she's allowed to have happen to her district, with needles, drug addicts, people living in the middle of the streets, on the sidewalks, she ought to focus on that because she's a disaster and she made a statement, it was a horrible,
7:31 pm
nasty vicious statement, while i'm overseas, now, have i made any statement about anybody it would be like, why would he do that when he's overseas? she's a terrible person, and i tell you, her name, is nervous nancy because she's a nervous wreck. >> laura: on tuesday joe biden once again downplayed the china threat at one of his town hall -- president trump: he doesn't get it. >> we're in a position where we have the most agile venture capitalist in the world. it's not like we're the bad guys. we're the best at doing it. our workers are literally three times as productive as workers in the far east. i mean, excuse me in asia. and they are three times productive. what are we worried about? >> laura: how happy would you be, president to have joe biden be the nominee? president trump: he wants him. he wants him. look, we're taking in tens of billions of dollars. we had a 3.2 gdp first quarter,
7:32 pm
always less than 1%. it always the worst quarter. 3.2. a point and a half above schedule. you know why? because so much money is coming in from china. we never took in any money from china. let me tell you a little secret. that's only a little tiny piece because the big one is yet to come. we have $325 billion that i haven't even taxed yet, and they have already spent all of their weapons. they have done everything they can. i tell you, the greatest people, the farmers. our patriot farmers, they are going to benefit, and, you remember this about the farmers, for 15 years, before i got here, everything was coming down. so this didn't happen. the farmers are going to be one of the biggest beneficiaries but these are patriots. people that say, the president is rye, and if i'm going to go through a little short term problem it doesn't matter. the president is right. listen to those incredible people back there. these people are so amazing, and what they don't realize is that, i'm holding them up because of this interview but that's because it's you.
7:33 pm
congratulations on your rating. >> laura: thank you very much. he and president putin sat down yesterday announcing new trade deals, talking about their closer, warmer relationship. your reaction to that, especially because you did want to have a better relationship if possible with russia at the beginning of your term. is that out the window now? president trump: we have a good relationship with russia. it's hurt by the phony witch-hunt. i could have a good relationship with russia. again, we have what everyone wants. i built an economy that's incredible. we're up $14 trillion in value. look at what's going on with the stock market, and this is despite the federal reserve that frankly should have had lower interest rates. now, there is a safety net that's good and more conservative, but if we didn't have all of these interest rate, you know, who thought he was going to raise interest rates? but if we didn't have that, we would be -- 5.2 and the stock market would be up 10,000 points more but now we have a very conservative approach.
7:34 pm
we've created trillions of dollars in value, and, by the way, china has lost trillions of dollars in value. if somebody else, let's say the opponent, who shouldn't have even been allowed to run, she happens to be a crooked person, so her name was very appropriate, but if she ever won, our, i would say china right now would be far ahead of the united states. just think of it. china would have been -- we're now so far ahead of china, it's not even a contest. >> laura: what you could do to unite the country in a time of great polarization? what else could do you? president trump: i think success should unite the country, but i'll tell you, the more successful we've come, the more angry people like nancy pelosi, who doesn't have what it takes, who don't know what's going on, they get angry. an example is mexico. i said, we're going to put tariffs on because we want you to help us because they won't pay us any legislation in congress and i have senators and others and pelosi coming out saying, oh, how horrible.
7:35 pm
what they are doing is they are hurting the deal. they should be saying, we're with the president. we'll do whatever he wants to do and mexico would fold like an umbrella. and now i have these people, and i'm saying there are some republicans, too, they should be ashamed of themselves, but we have pelosi, we have chuck schumer, who is a disaster, by the way, a total political jerk, but we have schumer, and all of these people, they come out and they talk about tariffs, or this -- they hurt my negotiation, because i go into the room with the mexicans, i'm asking them for everything, and, by the way, if they don't do it, i'm putting the trafrs on and we'll make a fortune. one thing with the tariffs, when those tariffs go on companies will start moving back. companies will move back to the united states. they took 32% of our car industry. every single one of those plants will move back into the united states. >> laura: are you going to get a deal with can china? president trump: i'll definitely get a deal with china. they want to make a deal now.
7:36 pm
what they did was very bad. we had a deal and they tried to renegotiate. they can't do that. >> laura: what do you pray for when you pray for this country? president trump: peace. really peace. and we built up our military, we've built up our wealth, our country is in such great shape right now, iran is in a much different position than they were 2 1/2 years ago. 2 1/2 years ago, iran was a disaster for us. now they have got problems. let's put it that way. they aren't the same country. north korea, no nuclear tests, i have a good -- we'll see what happens. we're going to see what happens. china wants to make a deal. everybody wants to make a deal. we're the best. we're the strongest. there is no one even close. >> laura: mr. president, finally, did you or did you not, the world wants to know, fist pump with the queen. president trump: di not, but there are knows who say they have never seen the convequeen a
7:37 pm
better time or more animated time. i didn't even know who the other people were at the table. never spoke to them. >> laura: are you going to keep the conversation going with her? president trump: yes, i am, she's a spectacular woman, an incredible woman. >> laura: mr. president, thank you so much, good luck. president trump: take care of yourself. >> laura: by the way, some of you may have heard a red that president trump supposedly held up the entire d-day ceremony in order to do this interview with me. that's patently false. fake news. we heard the macron -- our cue to end the interview is when we heard the macron helicopter. the interview ended before macron landed. in fact, president trump was on the lawn waiting for president macron who was, himself, just a few minutes late. up next, my power panel is back to respond to part two of this interview with president trump. stay there.
7:38 pm
7:39 pm
7:40 pm
7:41 pm
>> laura: stop the comments on twitter. yes i'm using a blanket. yes, two blankets. it's freezing. welcome back to paris live. joining me again to break it all down, part two of my interview with president trump. he had a lot of topics. ari fleisher, and harvard law professor dershowitz. he talked about normandy, sacrifice, i think it was the
7:42 pm
best speech of his political career but he's getting hit because at normandy, you know, he hit back at nancy pelosi, who said when he was traveling abroad, that she wanted him in prison. your reaction to some of this criticism that built up during the day? >> well, i think there is a difference between the speech that he gave which was very appropriate and an interview where he's being asked political questions. what i get frustrated with by many people in the media is they are okay with certain people being political while president trump is overseas or they are okay with other presidents being political when they are overseas but they are not okay with him. if you're going to have a standard, and i don't have a particularly strong view either way you have to keep it for people who are not with donald trump. >> laura: alan, nancy pelosi, while he's meeting with the queen and doing this state visit, make sure this comment or someone in her caucus, make sure it comes out that she says she hopes she sees him in prison. and now they are criticizing trump for that? >> i have to tell you, as a
7:43 pm
liberal democrat, i'm appalled at nancy pelosi, the idea of her weaponizing the criminal justice system and calling for the imprisonment of the president of the united states without him being charged with any crime, without him being charged with any impeachable offense, it's just outrageous. it sounds like the conversation between stalin and baris, where he said to stalin, show me the man and i'll find the crime. you can't target saying you want to see the president in prison without a crime. first of all, he can't be tried, convicted and imprisoned while he's serving as president of the united states. i don't know what she had in mind, but it was absolutely appalling, as a liberal civil libertarian, the idea of the most important democrat in the united states, calling for the imprisonment of a president is such a core violation of civil liberties, rule of law and american justice, she ought to be absolutely ashamed of
7:44 pm
herself. of course, the president had a right to fight back. if anybody said that about any of us we would have the right to fight back. >> laura: and we crossed paths with her, she walked right by us, ari, right before the interview, and i know she said on television, i guess, with cnn, she said, well i'm not going to criticize the president while he's overseas. while i'm overseas. so you did it when he was overseas, when you were back home, ari. >> yeah, pretty quaint notion, they have been doing it for years. they certainly did it to george bush but let me be the skunk in one regard. i hope all politicians retire the line, lock their opponents up. you know, criminalization of people you don't like in politics goes too far and i'll say president trump -- >> laura: fairpoint. same thing pelosi. >> i agree completely. i wrote a book about it, criminalization is wrong on both sides. we need disarmament. we have to stop using the criminal justice system as a weapon against our political enemies.
7:45 pm
>> laura: it's been a complete disaster for the country. we wasted so many opportunities, and, molly, i have to pick up on something, not a lot of people in the media, because they are focused on what he said about pelosi, but what the president said about russia and china, you know, they had their big meeting yesterday, and a lot of new trade deals announced between russia and china and the president pointed out that, look, he wanted a better relationship with russia at the beginning of his term. he wants to get along with more countries and he thinks that the mueller report affected our foreign policy because of the cloud hanging over this administration, and i think that's a profound point that gets lost in the overall controversy. >> when i heard nancy pelosi talking about putting donald trump in prison, i think, you know, we had this russia hoax that for years falsely accused president trump of being a traitor, and we haven't had enough people caring about just how that false report was weaponized by so many people in the media and in our government
7:46 pm
and we need to know so much more about that it did affect foreign policy. the big challenge that we've had for decades in the situation with russia and china is being able to play them off of each other and we got into a situation where no one could play nice with russia at a time when we really need to be keeping china in check and the idea that we wouldn't look into this, it is possible that certain people should go to jail for their participation in this hoax which caused so much damage, but not donald trump. >> let's remember, too, that the republicans also hurt foreign policy when they went after bill clinton and impeached him. it really hurt mourn foreign policy. so i think as ari said, we should be critical of all sides. trying to weaponize the political system and trying to destroy the other party. >> laura: yeah. all right, guys, again, president trump said, the trade negotiations, we're doing, it's so important for the country, that's being hurt by this perpetual, you know, weaponization of the political dialogue. i thank you so much, fantastic conversation. and 75 years ago, 235 men scaled

challenge of these cliffs in normandy puts it all into perspective. ♪ >> did you this climb yesterday. >> yes, sir. >> was what it you were expecting? had you done anything like that before? >> no, sir. obviously, being rangers, we've done several climbs, climbing techniques, climbing schools and climbing obstacles, but nothing compares to climbing point du hoc. the pinnacle event, especially for second ranger battalion. it created our legacy as one of america's premier elite forces. to actually stand there, feel it, smell it, hear the water, you know, from the english channel, you know, getting that experience, was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. >> how did it change your perception and respect for the men who actually did this 75 years ago? >> as far as being -- this is

something historical that's been on the top of our minds, something we celebrate every year, but actually being out there, you know, we had safety harnesses, we had other ropes, we weren't climbing rope ladders or single strand ropes, we weren't getting shot at. there weren't grenades going off. it was still a difficult climb so i can only imagine with everything that they were going through at the time, what they did was just absolutely remarkable. >> to sit there and, you know, try to really take in like what kind of physical exertion and, you know what kind of mental and physical attributes they had to have, really, it drives it home for us. it's just another example for us to use when we're training our young rangers and show them, hey, these are the legends that we owe, you know, because, in the end, some of these legends are behind us, that gave everything, and we owe it to them to continue to carry on the legacy of the rangers. >> what we're going to pass on is to continue to remember these men. we came out and did the ceremony

yesterday. there were 11 veterans, and every year there are less and less, just to continue to honor an remember the men who gave their lives and shaped the world in which we live because of their actions that day. >> what did they say? >> they thanked us the it was difficult to hear that from them. they thanked us, we thanked them, it was very surreal. very glad to be able to bart of it. >> my takeaway was some of the younger rangers that we brought with us, to experience the anniversary, to sit there and see a young 20-year-old ranger look up at the cliffs and take in the gravity and it's like, hey, 75 years ago, a guy just like you in a slightly different uniform was climbing those cliffs. now it's on us and i'm really proud of what i'm a part of and i'm just going to try to live up every day to those guys who set that example on that day on june 6. >> laura, it underscores the

audacity of the d-day invasion. as you said earlier, they had those wet ropes, they were throwing them up, only one rope for each group made it to the top of the cliff. they said it was like climbing a greasy pole. they couldn't hold on, yet they scaled it in five minutes. amazing. whether or not li >> laura: minu >> laura: incredible. my final thoughts as d-day draws to a close. to your goals and needs. some only call when they have something to sell. fisher calls regularly so you stay informed. and while some advisors are happy to earn commissions whether you do well or not. fisher investments fees are structured so we do better when you do better. maybe that's why most of our clients come from other money managers. fisher investments. clearly better money management.
