1:00 pm
let us pray. all mighty god, i ask that these moments here together and the heroic acts of this lieutenant -- >> we've been watching a medal of honor ceremony at the white house with the president. it's 4:00 in new york now. today the trump doctrine is coming into clearer focus with the president's declaration of vindication in response to the supreme court ruling in his favor on the controversial travel ban for mostly muslim nations, to his ongoing embrace of hard line immigration policies. here's the president speaking today on both topics. >> the supreme court ruling was a tremendous victory for this country and for the constitution. the supreme court ruling was a tremendous victory for our country. the ruling shows that all of the attacks from the media and the democrat politicians are wrong and they turned out to be very
1:01 pm
wrong. we have the worst immigration laws in the history of the world, okay? it's a joke. other countries it's called, i'm sorry, you can't come in, you have to leave. this one, we have judges. if they step on our land, we have judges. it's insane. we have to change it. it's so simple. it's called, i'm sorry, you can't come in. >> the supreme court coming down 5-4 with the court's conservatives arguing that the president's power to determine who enters this country should not be diminished by his history of incendiary statements about the dangers posed by muslims. essentially the conservatives decided these comments didn't matter. >> donald j. trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on. this is the protection of the nation from foreign terrorist
1:02 pm
entry into the united states. we all know what that means. we have to maybe check respectfully the mosques and we have to check other places, because this is a problem that if we don't solve it, it's going to eat our country alive. i think islam hates us. there's something there that's a tremendous hatred there. there's a tremendous hatred. we have to get to the bottom of it. >> in a scathing dissent justice sotomayor says the united states is a nation built on the promise of religious little bit. our founders honored that core promise by embedding the principle of religious neutrality in the amendment. the court's decision fails to safeguard that fundamental principle. it leaves undisturbed a policy first advertised openly and
1:03 pm
unequivocally as a total and complete shutdown. joining us to discuss today's developments, some of our very best reporters and guests. wi elise jordan, a former aide in the george w. bush white house and state department. steve schmitt is back at the table. let me start with you. i remember during the transition when the president was getting ready to issue muslim ban 1.0 which was drafted by steven miller in the earlier days of the presidency. it resulted in lawyers flooding the airports to help families caught up in that poorly crafted policy. i remember people in the intelligence community saying to me, who do you think we rely on the most in the countries that couldnt the greatest geopolitical threats from us? who do you think we rely onto trust us and to share secrets with us? can you take us through -- justice sotomayor talks about
1:04 pm
the national case that was made. can you talk about the reality on the national security front and what message this ruling sends around the world? >> you don't make peace by alienating the nations you're trying to work with. if you're trying to turn nations around, if you're trying to stem fundamentalist extremism and violence, one way to do that is to pretend that you're closed to them and it will all go away, kind of the ostrich sticking its head in the sand mentality. but that's been proven not to work, particularly when it comes to mitigating radicalization. with this move, we may well see an increase in radicalization and an increase in terror threats. the other thing is that today we became a little bit less of that shining city on the hill that we've always been and wanted to be and a little bit more of a country that's essentially closed to people not like us and closed to thoughts not like ours. i think america needs to decide what it wants to be when it
1:05 pm
grows up. democracy is still an experiment. experiments fail and i hope today that it's not showing signs of failure. >> that's why we started with this idea of the trump doctrine coming into focus. you cannot separate the policy that's been carried out at the border that resulted in the separation of 2300 children from their parents from the president's celebration, from what steve bannon described in an unprompted response to reporters as travel ban vindication, big deal for his psyche. reinforces his instincts are right and the haters are wrong. this is about the health of his psyche. >> thinking about former special agent of the fbi alisuefon with john o'neal came very, very, very close to disrupting the
1:06 pm
attacks on 91/11. he was a lebanese immigrant and an american. is america better off with him here? i would argue he is. today was a fantastic fulfi fulfillment of osama bin laden's vision by donald trump. what osama bin laden hoped to provoke was a war between the west and 1 billion muslims. and so what donald trump and this muslim ban signal to the world is that muslims are not welcome here, that this is whether the conservative justices say that, in fact, this is about executive power, the president's clear intent was to impose a religious test. that is as fundamentally un-american as anything he's done over the course of this presidency. the only force in the world that has the power to defeat extremists islam radicalism is
1:07 pm
moderate islam. and moderate islam was dealt a big setback today by this shortsighted, dangerous policy that abrogates all the fine traditions of our country from freedom of religion, to welcoming the renewal of the country's life blood with immigration. >> we've talked around this table a lot about what happens when you have a president so ignorant of not just world history but american history. if you look at the last two presidents as examples, they warn of two things, one, the dangers of doing anything to diminish a free press, and the other was religious intolerance. i didn't agree with every aspect of president obama's foreign policy, but the idea was so fundamentally american. we'll extend an open hand. george w. bush visited a mosque
1:08 pm
in washington, d.c. in his first public event on his schedule. this president could not stand in any sharper contrast today than at any other point in his presidency. >> right. this president doesn't sound any of those notes that you just mentioned. the court ruled on executive powers. but president trump is taking this as an affirmation of his agenda. it's about himself and how he views the world and the policies he wants to put in place. the timing is so striking, this decision comes down amid this furor over the forced family separation at the border, which the president and people around him wanted to do as a deterrent thinking it's a good issue for the midterms. obviously the blowback was bipartisan. it was the overwhelming imagery on cable news of these children. the president did what he hates to do, he relented, he backed down even though he did it very unwillingly and feared that it made him look weak.
1:09 pm
now, though, he is viewing this as a major win, a sense of vindication, not just from steve bann bannon, who is one of the architects of the original muslim ban last january, but people in the west wing now who feel this is an affirmation to what this president wants to do. the president himself thinks this underscores that his approach is the right way, the idea of this sort of hawkish immigration policy. >> is it hawkish immigration policy or is it out in the open racism? >> i think there are people who say, yes, this is a racist policy, who note connections between the people this president is trying to restrict come into this nation usually are people of brown and black skin color. i think people have made that argument. >> because i just haven't seen him separate any european families at the airport. i'm not trying to put you on the spot, but are you aware of any discomfort this white house has about people of european decesct
1:10 pm
coming into this country? >> he suggested these are the kinds of people we want to have here. that made some people unsettled, whether trump specifically meant to say in those flatout racial terms, but it did unsettle a few people that he was making that sort of contrast. what we are seeing is, the question is what happens next with this white house? do they take this ruling and then try to push forward again with some of these really aggressive stances at the border, because the president thinks he was dealt a huge win today. >> that's the obvious next question. this is not just about the president thinking that he has the power to keep out whoever he wants. this is the president feeling affirmed in banning muslims from entering this country. this is the president thinking maybe i'll apply that tactic to my problem with mexico. do you think a mexican ban could be in the works? >> i don't want to say a mexican
1:11 pm
ban per se, but i think this is a continuation of more fact free policy. not a single person whos banned from one of these countries -- has anyone from one of these countries caused a terrorist attack on american soil? no. this is donald trump pursuing the politics of fear. he's pursuing security theater. he wants everyone to be as scared as they possibly can, because he alone is the only one who can fix it. yes, we're going to certainly see more of this kind of rhetoric and fear mongemongerin >> i want to ask you about the rule of law. this is a supreme court decision and now becomes the law of the land. there's some twisted irony in the president celebrating the supreme court's rule of law and holding that up as good while at the same time he takes a sledge hammer and wrecking ball to the rule of law being carried out by his own appointees at the
1:12 pm
department of justice and the fbi every single morning on twit other. >> so the good news is that we still have a supreme court, that they still -- >> i guess that counts as good news. >> well, it does, because it still remains some form of check and balance. but the bad news is that if he continues to appoint supreme court justices that see things the way he sees them, we're going to face the time where he will be banning people that are unpopular, groups that seem to not appeal to his base and that he'll still create fear and direct us toward one common enemy or multiple common enemies. so today we are seeing the rule of law eroded in that he's celebrating this as a personal political victory. that's the problem. you mentioned the word racism before. essentially what we have here is what i call designer racism. by that i mean he's designed the seven countries in the ban to
1:13 pm
not touch any nation that the trump organization does business with. and more importantly, they are not the major sponsors of terrorism responsible for attacks against u.s. interests. you don't see pakistan on there. you don't see saudi arabia on there. those are countries that have sponsored acts of terrorism against us. so this is carefully crafted. it's designed to appeal to his base. and we have national security policy based on who he needs to appeal to for the next election. >> so i they's a good way to put it, designer racism. this is designed to keep out not people from countries that have attacked us in the past, but exactly as frank describes. >> 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers were saudis. this is about fear to accumulate power. let's look at the contrast to the greatest president of the
1:14 pm
20th century, franklin roosevelt. what does roosevelt say at the time he takes office at this time of economic calamity where fascism is rising in europe. he says the only thing we have to fear is fear itself, because he understood that fear is a contagion, the panic that comes from it can lead to many, many dark happeninghappenings. the reality is when you look at totalitarian systems and autocracies, they are all built on a foundation of lies and fear. fear and lies are two things this president is able to deliver over day in spades. >> he also delivered neil gorsuch. there he is with mr. mcconnell. gorsuch, you can't deny delivering for this president. >> no question. this is an epic level of trolling from senate majority leader mcconnell here who of course refused to move on merit
1:15 pm
garland's nomination in 2016 when that seat should have been filled by presidentobama. neil gorsuch kacast the decidin vote. we hear about thomas ork kenned. this president may get to appoint another justice in line with husband viewis views. this is the third version of the travel ban. the president has complained about it, thinks it's watered down, not tough enough. he greatly preferred 1.0. that didn't stop him from taking this victory lap today and likely being emboldened going forward. new evidence that a majority view our system of government as weak and diminished under donald trump's presidency. also ahead, bob mueller's investigation into russian meddling is accelerating.

the great democracies faced new and serious threats, yet seemed to be losing confidence in their own calling and competence. economic, political and national security challenges proliferate,
1:20 pm
and they're made worse by the tendency to turn inward. the health of the democratic spirit itself is at issue and the renewal of that spirit is the urgent task at hand. >> i've spent a lot of time in my farewell address talking about the state of our democracy. it goes without saying that essential to that is a free press. that is part of how this place, this country, this grand experiment of self-government has to work. it doesn't work if we don't have a well-informed citizenry. you are the conduit through which they receive the information about what's taking place in the halls of power. america needs you and our democracy need you. >> that democracy that our previous president spoke of, the bedrock principle that defines party lines or used to is in

danger. according to a new poll, half of americans think the u.s. is in real danger of becoming a non-democratic authoritarian country. the poll continues. 8 in 10 americans say they're either very or somewhat concerned about the condition of our democracy. donnie deutsche joins the conversation. i've been reading polls my whole career. i've never seen a poll on democracy in america that shows that many americans think our democracy is in decline. >> i texted you this morning that after the supreme court ruling, i got a stomachache. what happened today is sump a stunning exclamation point of why 50% should be worried and the over 50% should stay up and pay attention. our president basically has the latitude now in the name of national security to make any decision he wants. that's what that supreme court ruling said to me. that's the justification. we know where he came from, we
1:22 pm
know the racial bias. that's scary to me. that's scary that if six months from now he decides he doesn't like israel and jews are getting a little yappy, people like me, we speak too much, he thinks it's not good for national security. now, i know that's not going to happen, but that's the math. that's what's going on here. our fundamental bedrocks of who we are, of checks and balances -- this is a man who does not want the free press, thinks the judicial and intelligence committee should report to him, thinks he should be able to over turn any special investigation. we're headed there. if you look at the traces of early autocratic regimes, the stuff that's happening now is that. if you give enough people little nuggets of what they want -- take some of the wealthy new yorkers, some of my friends, give you tax cuts. we'll make sure these guys are happy over here. everybody always starts to
1:23 pm
overlook one little chink in the armor and we are on our i'm so saddened and sickened by today. that's why that poll is where it is. >> frank, one former president said to me once, you don't lurch into autocracy, you slide there one freedom at a time. are we sliding there? have we slipped into something different? are we still who we thought we were 17 months ago? >> i tell you one thing that's really got my attention and my concern is the president's assertion that we may not need judges and courts to handle the disposition of cases at the border. and even sarah huckabee sanders saying there's different kinds of due process. you don't have to go through the court system necessarily for due process. that really troubles me, because that takes us on this slippery slope where certain people don't need to get to see the court system. we're all about the court system
1:24 pm
in this country. we're all about a fair, objective hearing of your case, your issues. and if we start to say there are certain groups of people who don't merit the protections of the system, we're on a slippery slope away from our democracy and what we stand for and what we believe in. >> this seems to go beyond trump hysteria. this seems to go toward why, why are people asleep at the switch when we're talking about depriving entrance into this country due process? why are republicans complicit when a president sort of rushets to his worst primal instincts? i remember lindsey graham in the primary debates when there were still 437 republicans running, look into the camera and apoll zwri -- apologizing to the families of every muslim soldier. now he's an asset that trump runs as a puppet. what has happened?
1:25 pm
>> it is so depressing to see our worst fears start to be realized. you know, at the beginning of the trump presidency, we were told so frequently, just give him a chance, it's your own bias, just give him a chance, you seem that you want him to fail. so people tried to give him a chance. i'm sorry, look at where that has gotten us. it's gotten us to the point of creeping authoritarianism, corruption, nepotism with his own family, the russian investigation swirling. this is creeping authoritarianism. >> european leaders report in the "washington post" there's overwhelming anxiety that has a profound impact on what our european friends think he thinks about them. the consequences are disastrous for economic security and national interests. this is somebody that you read about and think about and talk
1:26 pm
about a lot maybe because they're stared this down in their towns, maybe because they see the remnants, they have a better sense of history than we do in this country. what do you think biden's getting at here? what is this moment? >> this is a moment in time where all around the world liberal democracy is rolling back. the tide is receding. in hungary, in poland, the rise of far right ethnonationalist parties in germany, in austria. i said this before the election in november 2016. fascism did not rise in the '30s because it was strong. it rose because democracy was weak. vladimir putin's greatest strategic aim so to break up the western alliance and to cause a crisis of faithn democracy. the lubricants of a democratic society are trust, faith and belief. and every day donald trump attacks trust, faith and belief
1:27 pm
in our institutions with his assaults on the rule of law. one of the things that i think president bush was wrong about when he talked about democracy during our tenure, that what creates a democratic society is elections. elections do not create a democratic society. in many places, they create majortariani majortarianism. what creates a democratic society is the rule of law, where minorities are protected from the majority. that is all under assault. when you see a president at thing the freedom of press, the first amendment, institutions of fairness in the judicial system, this is cause to worry. when you look at european leaders who have seen the disaster within a human life span that came from fascism, that came from totalitarianism, the threat on their door, the great arsenal of democracy, the light unto the world for freedom against tyranny, this country,
1:28 pm
to see in 18 months time the republican party, the party of lincoln and eisenhower and reagan embrace the liberalism of a dimestore . >> have they all become so -- i don't want to use the word brainwashed because i know some of those people. but are they resigned to trump's world view? or do any of them understand history anymore? >> i think there may be people at the white house who see the world the way steve just outlined but they're not saying anything. >> why not? >> i think what has happened here, particularly in the last few months is those around him, the grownups in the room have sort of resigned themselves to this president cannot be controlled, he cannot be contained. our efforts to manage him in the past have failed. what happens then?
1:29 pm
we are simply put on blast by this president and we see our influence diminished even further. there is not someone who could stand up to him and say you're wrong about this. should that be i van vanka trum role? it isn't. there isn't someone in the building who can tell him what to do or what not to do, especially because trump himself as grown, as he put it, far more comfortable in the role. he doesn't think he needs to rely on anyone else and he's leading on pure instinct and there's nothing holding him back. >> this is what the democrats have to know in this election. this upcoming election is for the soul of america. the way to sell it is not trump's a bad guy. is it his country or is it your country? it's that system. make the democrats about democracy. stop talking about what a bad guy trump is. what is your country? >> are we better than this?
