11:03 pm
first let's bring in kevin with the latest from the white house. reporter: a precarious pause described as a continuous circumstance on the ground in syria as sporadic expect over the region. we learn much more about the u.s. strategy for american forces there. the current game plan is to position into western iraq. the original 1000 and then to missions, one to defend, and perform a counter isis mission. >> house intelligence committee adam schiff had a cascade of a ministration official about ukraine and a possible quid pro quo kind usa to cooperation in the bidens business dealings. incredibly the goal of house democrats and the white house seem to grow and speaker of the

house nancy pelosi stormed out of the white house meeting accusing the president of having a meltdown over a bipartisan houseboat of pulling on syria. all is th the president is thing about holding the summit at his resort. based on media and democrat craze and hostility we will no longer consider national real miami. the reversal that came after criticism and accusation of self-dealing. >> you need to understand and acknowledge it makes it interesting and maybe it's something you want to reconsid reconsider. >> he got over that a long time ago. we believe this is the best place to have become a we will have it there. reporter: that was then, this is now. in the tweet the president mentioned camp david as a possible location for next year's g7 summit. at last hosted the g8 in 2012. chris: kevin reporting from the
11:05 pm
white house. joining us for an exclusive interview white house chief of staff mick mulvaney. welcome back to fox news sunday. >> good morning. i flinched because that's what people are saying that i said but i did not say that. chris: let's have a conversation. why did you say in that briefing that president trump had ordered a quid pro quo investigating the democrats that ukraine depended on investigating the democrats. >> that's what people said that a separate here's what i said, i'll say it again and hopefully people will listen. there are two reasons that we held up the eight, the first one was the rampant corruption in ukraine, it is so bad in ukraine in 2014 congress passed a law
11:06 pm
requiring us to make sure corruption was moving in the right direction. corruption is a big deal and everybody knows it. he was also concerned about other nations specifically european nations were helping with foreign aid. we talk about that for quite a while. i did then mention that in the past the president had mentioned time to time about the d&c server publicly. he even mentioned it to president zelinski and the phone call. but it was not connected to the aid. that's where people got sidetracked at the press conference. chris: i believe that anyone listening to what you said in that briefing only one conclusion let's play we said. >> he also mentioned to me in the past the corruption related to the d&c server no question about it. but that is it and that's why we held up the money. >> funding will not flow unless investigation is a democrat server happen as well we did all the time of foreign-policy. chris: you were asked by
11:07 pm
jonathan was investigating democrat one of the conditions for holding up the aid was not part of the quid pro quo and you said it happens all the time. >> go back and watch what i said before. there was a long answer about corruption. chris: you totally said that. >> and then i said the exact same thing i said now which is yes, the reason that we held back the aid with the two reasons i mentioned. i can prove it to you. the aid flowed. once we satisfied ourselves that corruption was doing better with it and we got the information from our folks from a conversation with mr. zelinski and once we established the research on other countries aid to ukraine it turns out they don't give much legal aid and once those two things were cleared the money flowed. there was never any connection between the flow of money -- >> i hate to go through this, you said what you said and after
11:08 pm
the exchange with jonathan you were asked another time why the aid was held up. what was the condition for the eight? and you did not mention two conditions, you mentioned preconditions. and let's listen to all three. you stated very clearly. let's listen. >> three issues for that, the corruption of the country, whether or not other countries are participating in support of ukraine and whether or not cooperating of an ongoing with the department of justice. >> not only did you say investigating the democrats was one of the three conditions, not to that you just said you had not talked about in investigating the democrats as part of the quid pro quo. you also said it was part of the justice department investigation into the origins of the russian probe. the fact is, not only did the press hear you say, here's what
11:09 pm
the statement put out by a senior justice department official. if the white house was withholding aid in regards to the cooperation of any investigation of the department of justice, that is news to us. everybody thinks that's what you said and you did it. you said right there three points, not two. >> as you said a few seconds ago, i said there was a quid pro quo. i never use that language. there was not a quid pro quo. chris: you described a quid pro quo inside the house and all the time. >> reporters will use their language all the time, my language never used quid pro quo. go back and lis look at the lisf three things. legitimate for the president to do, number one, legitimate for him to want to know what is going on with ongoing investigation into the server. everybody acknowledges that at least most normal people do. completely legitimate. number two, legitimate to tie the a2 corruption and tight to
11:10 pm
other countries. that's what i was talking about with number three. i see how people took that the wrong way but i never said it was a quid pro quo because it is not. you have been in these previous and you know how back-and-forth and rapidfire. look to the facts on the ground, things that you can certify and what should put this issue to bed is that the money flowed without any connection whatsoever to the da. >> in your first answer you said that's why we held up the money. first you just said it was for two reasons, now you acknowledge it was for three reasons and if you held up the money for three reasons, that is a quid pro quo. you have to satisfy us. maybe the president backed off but that was a proposition. >> i am not acknowledging this. i recognize that. go back to what actually happened in the real world. go to the phone call. go to the phone call which we
11:11 pm
released, hope you get a chance to talk about that. if you go to the phone call, the president never mentions aid adult in the phone call. he does not say i need to do this this and this or the money will not flow. we all know enough about this president that he feels very strongly about something he is going to put that out there directly and that did not happen. i recognize the folks -- i do not speak clearly and folks misinterpreted what i said but the facts are absolutely clear in there for everyone to see. chris: in the briefing, he flatly denied any connection between holding up the aid in investigating joe biden and his son. right? >> correct. chris: in the phone call with president zelensky, president trump mentions the bidens, do me a favor, rudy giuliani pushed all summer for ukraine to announce it was investigating the company that paid hunter biden and a former nsc official testified this week before congress that john bolton was so
11:12 pm
disturbed by the way you are directing people to work with rudy giuliani he said, i am not part of whatever drug deal, speaking metaphorically the u.s. diplomat and mulvaney are cooking up. no question you are following the president orders, but your fingerprints are all over linking aid to ukraine with investigating the finance. >> that is not true. i'll take one of those at a time, the bolton thing. i read that and was surprised, john bull never complain to me about it and no one nsc ever complained and i did not see the testimony which is another story entirely. when he said bolton never complained to him i think they would be on a hill is the one that testified. she complained to her boss. john bolton who did what. >> who told her to lead to a lawyer at the nsc inc. to
11:13 pm
complain. >> john bolton did not say anything to anybody. doesn't that raise a red flag. let's go to the first thing, the president's phone call, at the end of the day that's what this is about. the presidents phone call with ukraine. you've done the same thing with many news outlets. do me a favor, immediately go to the bidens. look at the transcript and the conversation. look at the d&c server, they talk about you corruption of ukraine and rudy giuliani, the president of ukraine gets on and talks about a close cooperation between the countries and corruption in a new ambassador to the u.s. and the president gets on and talks about bill barr and a new ambassador between our countries and then mentions the bidens. everybody puts on tv and says do me a favor and look at the bidens. that is not accurate. look at the transcript herself. chris: let's turn to syria.
11:14 pm
defense secretary has said those thousand troops are being moved out of syria are moving to iraq and they are not coming home. >> they will eventually in the quickest way to get them out of danger was to get them into iraq. what you are facing and literally the number was 28 u.s. special forces between tens of thousands of soldiers on one side and tens of thousands on the other side. i hope when we release the letter it puts to bed the nonsense about how the president is supposedly green lighting the invasion nothing is further from the truth in the letter. chris: the husband release. >> this is what we do within the administration of the time. they say there's agreement, the president greenlighted this. and then we put out facts that
11:15 pm
put that to bed and noah comes back and says we were wrong about that. go back to the beginning of the impeachment. how did it start, a transcript with the bidens no one comes back and says we wrong about that. chris: i'm running out of time. and i one more thing to talk about. i want to go back to the briefing for a minute. after the briefing and all the blowback in the criticism, did you ever offer or think to offer the president your resignation? >> absolutely not. >> was ever discussed? absolutely positively not. >> i'm very happy working there, did have the perfect press conference, no. but the facts are on our side, i did not get a chance to talk about some of the things i wanted to for example senator menendez sending a letter to the ukraine saying if you don't cooperate with mueller there will be repercussions. i had not had a chance to talk about quid pro quo, joe biden
11:16 pm
admitting he would cut off funding unless the prosecutor got fire. if that is not a quid pro quo i don't know what is. i haven't got a chance to do everything i wanted to but i still think i'm doing a good job as the chief of staff and i think the president agrees. chris: there seems to be a number of republicans in congress if not breaking with the president is doing themselves with the president radio mitch mcconnell the senate majority leader who wrote an article about syria this week, we are withdrawing u.s. forces from syria is a grave for strategic mistake a nightmare for our country. house republicans voted against the trump policy in syria 129 - 60, more than 221 and i talked to a well-connected in washington this week, summit's name you would know well, if the house votes to impeach gets to a trial in the senate there is a 20% chance he believes is an
11:17 pm
estimate. enough republicans will vote with the democrats to remove the president. >> that is just observe, but still the issue of syria. chris: let's deal with the issue of republicans are losing your support. >> a 20% chance of persons usually does not know the talk about. but talk about the reaction of the republicans and democrats on the hill to the decisions on syria. the president knew that was going to happen. he recognizes the fact is not politically popular in this town to make the decision to move the troops out of syria. he ran on it and told people he would do this. chris: forgive me for interrupting. we are running out of time. is there any concern that the president is losing support of republicans in congress? >> no he is extraordinary popular back home and more popular in the swing districts now -- they have to go home eventually as well. joy understand there certain folks who are upset about syria
11:18 pm
decisions, i absolutely do. but again election some comfor consequences and that's when we started the conversation and thankfully they do. chris: two final questions, one of the people testified in congress this week for the house impeachment investigation also said he was so concerned about hunter biting getting the job in ukraine in 2015 that he went to the vice resident stafford and said this looks really bad and he was turned away. your reaction. >> good, surprised they have not heard about it sen sense. i am hearing it for the first time and i look forward to finding out more about it that's for some of heard about it. chris: you're not heard, it's
11:19 pm
been reported in the last 48 hours. >> no i've been busy the last 48 hours. chris: let me ask you something else. president trump has decided after he put you out there in the briefing to announce terrel, he has decided he's not going to hold at the real, he blames it on the hostile media and the democratic partners but he was getting hammered by republicans so why did he cave? >> we talked about in great length last night and they made the decision on thursday we would have the press conference on thursday regarding everything else. but we did not talk about it last night. and what you saw in the tweet was real, the president is not one for holding back if he's feeling emotions about something. he was surprised at the amount of level of pushback. he still considers to be hospitality business. he sold opportunity to take the biggest leaders around the world and put them on the best show and visit he possibly could and he was comfortable doing that the real world surprised.
11:20 pm
we will have to find some place else that the media won't like for another reason. chris: you says he considers himself and hospitality business. he's the president of the united states. >> that's his background, i used to be in the real estate business. he wanted to put on a show, he wanted to take care, he's in the hotel business. chris: as he understands, forget the media, does he understand that it looked lousy? >> i think he thinks people think it looks lousy, can we put on an excellent g7 there, absolutely. what we put on an excellent one somewhere else. yes we absolutely will. chris: always good to be here. bring in the sunday group to discuss with the house impeachment investigation and new evidence u.s. off so i can buy from enterprise car sales and you'll take any trade-in? that's right!
11:21 pm
great! here you go... well, it does need to be a vehicle. but - i need this out of my house. (vo) with fair, transparent value for every trade-in... enterprise makes it easy.
11:22 pm
11:23 pm
here, hello! starts with -hi!mple... how can i help? a data plan for everyone. everyone? everyone. let's send to everyone! [ camera clicking ] wifi up there? -ahhh. sure, why not? how'd he get out?!
11:24 pm
a camera might figure it out. that was easy! glad i could help. at xfinity, we're here to make life simple. easy. awesome. so come ask, shop, discover at your xfinity store today. the radical democrats have been trying to overthrow the result of a great, great election. maybe, maybe the greatest election in the history of our country. chris: president trump rallying supporters in dallas against the house impeachment investigation. it is time for the sunday group former republican congressman jason, fox news political analyst ron and former democratic congresswoman jane and from the wall street journal kimberly, author of the new book resistance at all costs. how damaging do you think the
11:25 pm
last week has been to president trump, testimony from a number of current and former national security officials that the president had rudy giuliani, his personal lawyer run it off the books operation when it came to ukraine in whatever you make of them will be knees, it's of a quid pro quo. >> i wish there is video to show what was going on on the impeachment hearings because they have not been open and transparent. what adam schiff did when he lied, he physically lied in front of the committee when he had a chance to talk about it. i don't think they're laying a glove on donald trump. inside the beltway there's a frenzy but it is not moving the meter at all. >> how strong is the case people against a president. >> i'm not in the room either but to be clear these are depositions, not hearings and there are various people who are talking under oath, republicans
11:26 pm
and democrats are in the room and questions are being asked by counsel but republicans and democrats have equal time to ask questions. chris: enough about the process what about the substance. >> is in the press but it has not been a good week for the president, to good things happen, one i think sort of kind of good leak he backed off on the china terrorists. that's a big deal because the economy was about to soft into a point that would've hurt him. in the other big deal is our troops are moving to iraq and not leaving the area so there will be some counter isis movement and it does not mean this decision made any sense. i don't think so i agree with mitch mcconnell. chris: the biggest surprise in my interview mulvaney does not have known about the revelations this week about hunter biting. hunter biting answer questions about his business dealings.
11:27 pm
>> if your last name was not biden do you think you would've been asked to be on the board? >> i don't know. probably not. i don't think there's a lot of things that would've happened in my life is my last name was not biden. chris: can we also learn that one of those officials who testified before the house impeachment investigation this week was so disturbed in 2015 when hunter biden started working for the ukrainian energy company, charisma, and the appearance if nothing else seemed to be self-dealing that he went to the vice president and biden then was vice president and says this looks bad. and he was turned away. >> that is a big deal. it's just surprised no one. prior to the press deciding this was the issue were not allowed to talk about in joe biden did nothing wrong, they were writing the stories about this and quoting former officials who work for joe biden saying they were uneasy with the situation and they did not like it was
11:28 pm
happening. in the issue here is when people like to use the word corrupt, it is ways been the appearance question. the question of whether or not hunter biden was profiting off his father's position. you don't need to go much further than that. it is hurting joe biden with the primary voters. chris: left the cup on that, the president who does not like to back down did back down overnight and said i'm not going to hold the summit next june and the raw his own resort that was really a lot of squealing from democrats in republicans, didn't one of the reasons that he may have done it because it seemed to blunt hurt his case against joe biden? >> i think it did i think the cancellation is a tiny step in the right direction. this is so blatant and self-interest or as mick mulvaney said a man in
11:29 pm
the hospitality business above the national interest and i think that speaks to the whole ukrainian deal but on a large point, more of the campaign promise he broke. he said he would divorce himself from all business interests. this is in the right direction but think about the idea that he has no problem appointing jared kushner his son-in-law at emissary to the middle east in dealing with the crown prince of saudi arabia a man who's killed journalists are making excuses. chris: that is just a decision. and as mick mulvaney said about rudy giuliani, the president gets decide we want to do business with. >> you're putting your family physician of critical policy. it is apart from the normal of foreign-policy in the country and the shadow of foreign-policy runway giuliani. again to my mind you look at doral, it was a struggle
11:30 pm
property and here is the president saying i'm going to help my own business and brand as a prestige fact because the g7 was told there. >> this is a complicated situation i'm glad he decided not to do it is a blunt his message about the appearance of conflict with hunter biden. there is a breakup located discussion to heart about whether or not donald trump business and per or as reporting has shown he's probably taken a hit. there's good evidence his booking has gone down at a lot of his places. i am not saying -- i'm not arguing poor president, look at the numbers. you cannot run around into the president's profiting off of his presidency. you have to look at the facts. -- >> you cannot take any compensation -- >> he never had in the court
11:31 pm
system -- n. chris: mayor pete buttigieg points us in washington after debate that has some democrats saying he cannot compete with joe biden at the central voice joe biden at the central voice of the without the letters a, b and o,

there's no mom. there's no brittany. because as, bs and os determine your blood type. and we're missing all of them. schedule your donation at redcrossblood.org
11:34 pm
chris: pete buttigieg is trying to get back into the top tier of 2020 democratic candidates. a strong performance in this week's debate paid off with more than $1 million in campaign contributions in the first 24 hours after the debate. joining us as the mayor of south bend, indiana. welcome back. let's start with the latest poll numbers in the politics average of recent surveys your fourth place nationally at 5.8% fourth in iowa with 13% and forth to new hampshire at 4.7%. as a candidate from the midwest, don't you have to finish in the top two or three and iowa or you
11:35 pm
are done? >> it is certainly the case of a strong performance in iowa will be critical winning the nomination. that's what we are building towards, a terrific ground game, over 22 field offices and 100 organizers. a message that is connecting with i went. democrats first and foremost want to know that we can defeat or replace president trump and want to know how the policies we are putting forward will affect their lives whether medicare for all or the vision we put forth a number of his sui issues. even now there are so many island who have it narrowed down to a top three but taking the time to evaluate their choices and we have our work cut out for us to close the deal between now and the caucus. chris: you have stalled to some degree in the polls at least nationally ever sent the terrible police shooting himself in indiana.
11:36 pm
folks notice a progressive taken on elizabeth warren with medicare for all in tulsi gabbard on troops in beto o'rourke on gun box. >> your signature is a plan for everything except us,. >> i think that is dead wrong. i don't need lessons from you on courage, political or personal. chris: was not a conscious effort to jumpstart your campaign? >> these are topics are very passionate about. what it comes to what is being done not just the middle east for example but to american credibility, the fact that people who put their lives on the line trustee that the united states would have their backs and now betrayed, the u.s. troops in the field feel that their honor has been stolen from them by the commander-in-chief.
11:37 pm
how can you not be fired up about something like that. this is a season for us to lay out what we care about, passionate about and what is different among each of the candidates. i want to make sure there's no question in any voters mind how their life would be different if any others were elected. >> one of the distinctions, you said 2021 the democrats elected president in the country can make hicks torque gains on healthcare, immigration and guns but not if they push too far and promised to much. do you think that some of the solutions whether climate change, medicare for all by senators warren and sabers are too drastic? >> we have a chance to build an american in short term majority around bold action but is the case we could wreck that majority your purity test. for an example of medicare question, i am proposing medicare for all who want to
11:38 pm
which means we create a version of medicare and everybody can get access and if you want to keep her private plan we are okay with that. that's a better policy than kicking people off of their plan. i also think it's something that more americans can get behind. when you think about the condition our country will be in when this presidency comes to an end one way or another and help torn apart we will be in polarized and divided, this is not a political question it's a question of governing. the good news we can govern in a leading direction but we have to make sure we do it in a way that moves toward unifying and polarizing the american people. >> the left is firing back in elizabeth warren said she will not participate in fundraisers even if she is a democratic nominee against donald trump next fall. you said this. we are not going to beat him ,
11:39 pm
trump with pocket change. here is what alexander ocasio-cortez said small dollar grass roots campaigns what buddha judge insults as pocket change out fundraising by billions. our nation's leader should be working to in the era of big money politics, not protected. what do you have to say to aoc. >> you don't go for mayor of south bend to a presidential candidate without knowing a thing or two about grassroots campaigning. my campaign is fueled by contributions of almost 600,000 individual donors and most of those are small contributions. what i'm saying we cannot go into this fight against donald trump with one hand tied behind her back. the president of the united states and his allies raised $125 million and they will pull out all of those to stay in power. we have a responsibility to the country to make sure we go in
11:40 pm
with everything that we have and not unilaterally dishonest. we need to in the air a big money politics and that's why patcampaign finance reform is so important. it will never happen if the folks currently in charge stay there. chris: the last time we talked was in august and i pointed out that you were at 0% in the polls among african-americans and there's a new pool in the last few days at 2% support. when we last talked, he described a big outreach to minority communities, the african american community, why is it not working? >> this is not about the polls. chris: it is about the polls. >> in order to do well you need to deserve to do well. we are focusing on the substance of what i have to offer. voters want to know how their lives will be different in a case of african-american voters, they want to know my agenda for black americans.
11:41 pm
we are putting forward the most comprehensive plan of any candidate to tackle systemic racism in this country. it's everything from empowering black entrepreneurs in fueling business development to make sure we do with discrimination in housing and in health to cutting incarceration in this country by 50%. we know the criminal justice system disproportionately harms african-americans. we need to make that case that is extremely well received whenever i have a chance to offer it. we have a lot of voters sizing of options who need to feel like they know you and our job is to do that in the short amount of time. chris: i want to press on this a little bit you talk about needing to deserve and voters trying to understand who you are. you are supposed to attend a big fundraiser in chicago on friday in one of the host was the same city attorney who worked very hard to block release of this video of police shooting look juan mcdonald and the lawyer backed out of the fundraiser and
11:42 pm
he also donated $5600 to your campaign particularly at a time when african-americans are trying to get to know you. isn't that a mistake you cannot afford to make. >> this came to my attention in the morning and within an hour it had been taken care of. the situation injustice and transparency for mcdonald is much more important to me than a campaign contribution. we did the right thing as soon as it came to my attention. chris: you understand where people would say the guy who wants her vote going to take money and attending the fundraiser being held by the city attorney. >> and then we took care of it. the biggest question on voters mind, how will my life be different especially when the sun comes up the first day after
11:43 pm
donald trump is president and the agenda i am putting forward and the issues i want to tackle will speak to black voters and to all voters who are seeking a better life in this country and seeking to turn the page from the chaos and corruption we live under right now. chris: thank you for your time always good to talk to you. when we come back turkey agrees to a temporary cease-fire in syria and we will ask our sunday group what it means for u.s. group what it means for u.s. interest in the middle't easy.
11:44 pm

>> the kurds are very happy, turkey is very happy, the united states is very happy and civilization is very happy. it's a great thing for civilization. chris: president trump with an optimistic assessment brokered by vice president pence and turkey and back with the panel. what do you think that the u.s. made with turkey? >> i think sadly pens and his
11:47 pm
advisors were scrambling to come up with some kind of announcement that would make sense and i salute him for trying but i don't think he succeeded, i think a deal was impossible and where we are now the cease-fire is not holding in the kurds, allies with 1000 people on the battlefield are being massacred and there is a vacuum being filled by isis in the syrian government and by russia and guess what is real, our deepest ally is surrounded on the syrian border by ron making the missile from libya -- lebanon smarter and this is creating an exponential threat and leading to dangerous circumstances.
11:48 pm
