♪ good morning to you our viewers in the west. it's tuesday, november 5th, 2019. welcome back to "cbs this morning." i'm gayle king. ahead donald trump, jr., here in studio 57, talking about the impeachment inquiry. he takes us inside the white house battle to defend president trump. >> i'm anthony mason. jenny slate made it as a comedian, actor and author, how she kept going when she thought it was over. >> i'm tony dokoupil. who bought olivia newton-john's iconic pants from grease we'll show you. >> here's today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> terrible news from mexico where at least nine americans

8:02 am
>> why! >> don't do it again. it will make you belly sick and you will have to poop all that out. >> works every time every year. >> it's never fun pooping all that out. nice job. >> eat your vegetables. >> welcome to "cbs this morning." house impeachment investigators are due to release more transcripts today from closed door testimony. they include questions and answers with the u.s. ambassador to the european union, gordon sondland. his attorney told cbs news sondland testified he believed there was a quid pro quo between the trump administration and ukraine, tying military aid to investigations of joe biden, his son and alleged election interference. >> in a transcript released yesterday, long-time diplomat michael mckinley told the house panel he urged secretary of state mike pompeo to put out a
8:03 am
statement supporting the recalled u.s. ambassador to ukraine, ma rhea von niche. >> from the time she departed ukraine until the time that he came to tell me he was departing i never heard him say a single thing about his concern. >> you were never asked -- >> not once. not once, george, did ambassador mckinley say something to me during that entire time period. >> mckinley said he resigned partly because he believed the trump administration used the state department to dig up dirt on a political opponent. he testified he had never seen that in his 37 years of government service. >> donald trump, jr. is the oldest son of president donald trump. he's an executive vice president at the trump organization. and acts as a surrogate f his father's presidential campaigns. his book is titled "triggered how the left thrives on hate and wants to silence us" and joins us at the table. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> >> that is quite the title. listen, you start off by saying
8:04 am
that you intended to write a book about forgiveness and healing, it would be a political chicken soup for the soul. >> a little tongue and cheek, after what i've been through the last few years, i am entitled to hit back a little bit. >> page 5 something both sides can agree that things have gotten way out of control in this country. i think both sides agree on that. let's start with your father's accomplishments that you lay out. as president he has improved more affordable generic drugs you say, securing new funding to fight the opioid epidemic. signing criminal justice reform legislation. you stay the unemployment rate is better than it's ever been. a recent fox news poll found nearly half of americans want to see him impeached and removed from office. there's that side of it too. and your father clearly is pushing back, fighting back. what's your strategy? what's the strategy in the white house to fight? >> you talk about reality. look at what's going on as it relates to the impeachment inquiry, adam schiff a known hater, has been saying that he
8:05 am
had information and he had evidence. no one has seen that evidence. he just keeps saying it. he's being judge, jury and executioner about a process where republicans aren't allowed to ask questions. witnesses are told not to answer those questions. my father put the transcript out. read it. everything else is opinion. read the transcript and make your decision from there. the reality is this, my father has accomplished unprecedented things, whether it's all-time low unemployment for every group, prison reform, a piece on it where people are being released, that's not a republican issue it's the right thing to do and that's what he's doing. he's doing all of these things despite unprecedented incoming -- >> there are fair criticisms about your dad. >> that's fair. he's tough. he fights back. uncustom marry for the republicans. when you taken what he's taken, your family gone after in the press, trying to throw them in jail literally, "the washington post" wrote an article the day of the inauguration that went to
8:06 am
print 19 minutes later saying the case for impeaching trump. the impeachment process has been going on, gayle, since november 9th, 2016, because you have a guy that did what he wasn't supposed to do. he took on the establishment and he won. that's unacceptable. >> yet we have -- >> let him do his job. >> we have a situation where the polls seem to be moving in the wrong direction. more than 50% say they support an inquiry and impeachment already without even seeing the public testimony -- >> was that also a d-plus poll. that's mine. it's one thing to say that and that's fine we can go through the process. the reality and process will vindicate him and i think it's going to hurt people in the middle. there are still reasonable people left in this country. i spent a lot of time with them in middle america. i had someone come up to me at the airport in d.c. saying, i wish they would just let him do his job. >> you say don, in the book, that rust belt are your people. >> they are. >> you admit i'm a billionaire's son. >> of course. >> i caome from a place of privilege but these are my people. >> i don't hide where i come
8:07 am
from. i'm the son of a billionaire from new york city. my hobbies, competitive shooting, i spend so much time in that area that these are the people that choose to hang out with. i'm not a fixture in the new york city black tie dinner circuit. every weekend i get out. i'm finishishing, shooting, hun get to know those people. when i showed up in iowa and campaigning and get into this in great detail in the book, it wasn't here's my token buddy from iowa. i've been sleeping on his couch ten years during deer season. it was a little different. that genuineness comes through. my father being a builder, you know, and being in construction his whole life and not just doing it from a glass tower but doing it on the ground with actual construction workers and spending time with those guys that's why he resonated with those hard-working men and women in america who have watched their jobs get shipped abroad, who have watched other countries live their american dream because of stupid trade policy and my father is fighting to break that back to america.
8:08 am
>> i want to talk about a point you make in the book. you criticize hunter biden, joe biden's son in this book, as you have done out on the campaign trail effectively in speeches. for even the appearance that he might have tried to benefit financially from when joe biden was vice president. aren't you benefiting essentially from your father being president? >> not even a little bit. from that, from the politics. i've benefitted from my father's name. i'm not going to hide from that. so has hunter. there's a different when hunter biden is getting 1.5 billion from china because of his father's taxpayer funded office. hunter biden knows nothing about energy, never invested in it in his life. a board in a corrupt ukraine oil company in a language he doesn't speak because his father is handling those that region. we are international business people for decades and we stopped doing new deals. we have deals we were obligated to finish we signed up in 2010. >> but you have expanded some of
8:09 am
those deals. you're expanding in scotland, you've traveled to india, indonesia. >> we have to finish out the deals that we have. we have a contractle -- we have not signed a new deal abroad since my father took the presidency. we would be able to legally, we chose not to and did that pubically so as not even create the notion of impropriety. we didn't magically become international business people because of my father's office. we frankly stopped our international expansion because of it. that's a big distinction that the media likes to neglect. >> your sister ivanka quoted last week about thomas jefferson, that your father is, quote, surrounded by enemies and spies. do you believe that your father is surrounded by spies in the white house? >> i think there are a lot of people that are establishment that are looking for their next gig. trump is a unique president. i don't think there's many like him. the d.c. establishment and the swamp, you know, they realize that, you know, after trump, it may go back to normal they're
8:10 am
protecting themselves. both sides. this is not a republican or democrat issue. >> you think there's spies in the white house? >> both sides don't like someone who is attacking the system that they've' gotten rich in and very comfortable in. i do believe there are are a lot of people even in his white house that aren't necessarily serving his best interests because they're not doing what he wants, they're doing what they think is best for them later on. >> we know that your father operates on his instinct and gut. outside of himself who do you think -- whose advice do you think he respects and trusts the most? >> without question jared and ivanka are doing an amazing job there getting things done. i think, you know, there are few people he can fully trust. people doing great jobs. i think mike pompeo, his cabinet is doing a great job. >> is rudy giuliani doing a good job? >> in his role, he's outside of government that way, but in his role he's doing a good job. >> he seems to be creating more problems for the trump administration? >> again, i think it's different in that my father is a fighter,
8:11 am
right. so is ru it. the reality is this. my father has shown republicans it's okay to fight back. we've turned the other cheek as conservatives for 50 years and all it's done is allowed us to crede ground. we have to fight back. i think that creates controversy people people aren't used to it. >> talk about triggered. >> the title. >> you're sending it to your favorite liberal, website set up. i have to ask you on the question of discourse, the thing everyone seems to agree on the temperature tize high. people on all sides say that. do you agree that temperature is too high. it seems like you're doing the opposite. >> i would love to see it get back to a place of normalcy. i don't know that that exists today. when i look at the media bias, those things, it makes it hard for my father to do his job. last weekend, al baghdadi -- an important point to make because you can't say we should get back to normal when "the washington post" is calling the leader of isis, a guy that lit people on
8:12 am
fire in cams, who throws homosexuals off a building is an austere religious scholar. you know, you need some grownups in the room there too. >> i'm asking if you're interested in any healing rhetoric to bring the country closer. >> i could have taken these points a lot further and fired for effect, but i didn't. you brought up a couple issues. i made my point. i'm good. we're all live and let live. today, you know, sort of the woke goal post. they keep moving. the example i use in the book obviously as it relates to transwomen in sports. identify how you want. i think it's wonderful. i don't care. when you start saying i'm a man, become a woman, winning national championships, setting weight lifting world records, you know, displacing women who have worked their entire lives -- >> a conversation about -- >> to a point -- >> let's keep this -- >> i think that's wrong. the goal posts never stop moving. >> are you interested in running for political office? >> i'm interested in winning
8:13 am
2020 for my father right now. we'll worry about everything else later. >> in the book you said, listen, i never thought i would be in politics or a vegan but now, you admit you've got the political bug. >> i won't be a veegp, i promise you. >> me either. >> i do. listen, i enjoy being out there and see the difference -- >> anthony's question is a fair one. >> can you see yourself running for office? >> the reality is right now i like the campaigning part. i enjoy some of that fight. i like getting out and being with real people and seeing the difference that my father and his policies are making in their lives. i don't know right now at this stage of my life that i would like the day job component of it. >> you talk about the fractures that you and your father have had and you're back together. you've also said it's taken you 40 years to realize in a gruelling campaign that maybe you're more like your father than you realized. >> without question. >> what does that mean? >> i think we talk about fractures, when my parents got divorced i was 12 years old. people try to make it seem like this has been going on our entire lives. that's not true.
8:14 am
in business our personalities were more similar than we thought and clashed than my brother or sister did with him. we had a great relationship wise. i think when you've been backed in a corner and you're fighting like this, when you've been, again, accused of treason by half of congress, fwhakds that corner i realized i fight lightning like my father. we're not going to roll over and die because the other side wants us to. it was an awakening, we saw we were similar than dissim sfloor i'm sure you'll take the conversation to twitter. say something nice on there today. >> i will do that. >> i can do both. >> gayle, there's nice stuff in there. >> who is your favorite democrat? go ahead. >> oh. >> all right. mayor trump we will let you go. >> thank you very much. >> it is now 8:14. the name of the book "triggered" wherever you buy

8:24 am
plans, health maintenance organizations, stay in the network, there are preferred provider organizations, you have to have some of your doctors in the network, if you go out of network it will cost more, and there are high deductible health plans, they're great. very easy to do, low monthly annual -- monthly premiums, but you have a much higher deductible. this is important because there's so much money being spent there. that's why we want to project out. medicare open enrollment also going on right now. please sit down with your older relatives and walk through this for them. and the affordable care act, one last thing, i know you love this -- when you look at your retirement plan, there may be brand-new things there. there's something called a roth 401(k) or roth 403b. this is a great way for younger people to start saving money. you don't get a tax deduction today, you get a way to pull money out later. >> i automatically do --

welcome back to "cbs this morning." time it bring you some of the stories we call "talk of the table." why? because it's a table and we're talking. we each pick a story that we like and share it with each other and all of you. who's first? >> i'm up first. this is something you're going to like and everyone at home's going to like, as well. our economy keeps getting more efficient, and yet we keep working longer hours. it turns out we might be reaching a breaking point where the best way to boost productivity is to work less. microsoft employees in japan took part in the so-called work-life choice challenge. so for the month of august, they worked only four days a week. 32 hours. they took off fridays, three-day weekend every week. >> i'm liking this a lot. >> i am, too.
