tv   Risk and Reward With Deidre Bolton  FOX Business  July 5, 2017 5:00pm-6:01pm EDT

5:00 pm
they secured job or apprenticeship, been accepted to college, a gap year program or military. the rule take effect in 2020. i had a fight with somebody like this. you can't force people what they don't want to do. "risk & reward" starts right now. liz: president trump heads overseas to g20 meeting in europe. he just touched down moments ago. he will meet with russia's putin as north korea tests a brand-new missile. the u.s. has not seen before, could hit the u.s. north korea's defiant dictator calls it a, quote, 4th of july gift to american bastards as the gop health care reform hangs in the balance. the markets closing mixed with the dow ending a point lower. while the nasdaq and s&p closing higher as tech stocks snapped their three-day losing streak. the president landing in poland
5:01 pm
moments ago ahead of the g20 meeting in germany. he will meet with world leaders including the first face-to-face friday with russian president vladimir putin since president trump was elected. top administration officials feel optimistic the senate can pass obamacare reform when it returns to washington, d.c. next week. with more on the latest, take it to adam shapiro, adam? >> reporter: we talk about the health care reform, what we're talking about, emac, is the fact that the white house does believe they can get this through in the next couple of weeks before the august recess, but there are going to be town hall meetings, for instance, ted cruz is having one, and we've already seen protests at some of these events as the different members of congress and the senate have gone home. people opposed to what is proposed by the republicans there. was the proposal last week to split this into different parts
5:02 pm
to do repeal and another day come back and do reform down the road. that was a proposal ben sass talked about. but we heard over the july 4th recess, which is still in effect. mitch mcconnell saying no, we're going to keep pursuing what we introduced last week. so when it comes to health care reform, that is where we seem to be headed. they are pursuing the better care reconciliation act in the senate, but the white house is optimistic that they will get something accomplished, emac? liz: thank you so much, adam. president trump preparing to meet with russian president vladimir putin friday as the g20 summit. bring in former governor mike huckabee. good to see you, governor? >> good afternoon, how you doing, liz. liz: and happy 4th. the president's meeting with vladimir putin looks like the first formal conversation between putin and a u.s. president in nearly two years. okay, so is president trump more worried about the media attacking him over appearing
5:03 pm
cozy with putin or getting scolded things over climate change by germany's angela merkel, what do you think he's worried about? >> neither one of them. donald trump isn't a man that is easily rattled. fascinating meeting between putin and the president. i wish i could be there to watch it. though i don't expect there to be a lot of substantive conversation in that initial encounter. i think it's going to be two alpha males, sizing each other up, i think the body language is far more important to watch than anything that either of them say, but this is going to be an interesting contrast between donald trump, who's like the muhammad ali, who looks like to use a lot of hyperbole, goes into the ring with bravado and putin who always in public, anyway, is self-depreciating, dismissive that he or the russian government would be involved in anything nefarious.
5:04 pm
i think it's going to be a fascinating meeting. as far as a big agreement, probably not. liz: to your point, governor, president obama, the red line in the sand shifted over syria. the red line in the sand over russia innovating crimea shifted. red line in the sand over russia hacking into certain electoral systems shifted. president obama didn't have a red line in the sand. so looks like president trump is a tough guy in negotiations and does want isis cornered and on the run, and that's now happening. do you think the focus will shift that they have common ground on isis and terrorism? >> i think there is common ground there, and both the russians and the united states clearly know that one of their greatest threats and the greatest threats really to the world is radical islam. so that's an area which they can agree, have a good conversation, i do think that when putin looks at trump, it's very different than president
5:05 pm
obama. i don't think he took obama seriously because obama never followed through in the things he was going to do. and the big thing about meddling was him saying you all cut that out. that was bold, wasn't it? i don't think putin took obama's threats seriously. with president trump, it's not that he takes him more seriously, he just didn't know what donald trump's going to do, that scares him just enough that he's intrigued by it. i don't think he's going to go in there shrugging his shoulders saying i'm not worried about this guy. i think he may be worried that trump may light up one of his airfields, there or syria. liz: he has the red line in the sand over chemical weapons, right? >> right, absolutely. liz: you think he's going to bring that up? . >> i think he could, he could say how come you put the 59 tomahawks down on the runway? and at that point the president is going to say mr. putin, if
5:06 pm
you continue to support a regime like syria that uses chemical weapons, it's going to get worse. you pick better friends than that. i think both. guys are blunt with each other but don't expect it in the first meeting. this is all for getting to know you. this is the first date that this is a long way from, you know, getting beyond that. liz: the first date. >> let's call it this way. this is just lunch. liz: remember putin wouldn't come out to the meeting with rex tillerson. let's get on angela merkel. she does not like president trump's winners and losers pro. angela merkel said it is a tremendous mistake to think answers can be solved by isolationism and protectionism. we expect clashes over climate change including the paris climate treaty. what are your thoughts against merkel and trump? >> president trump landed in poland moments ago, it's late at night there.
5:07 pm
i'm convinced it will take half a baby aspirin for the president to sleep worried about what angela merkel said him. i think he's more just frustrated that she continues to have open borders in germany. it's proved to be disastrous. i think he understands that the paris climate deal was disastrous for the united states, and he's not going to sit around be and pushed around by angela merkel or anybody in the european union. so i really honestly think that if angela merkel believes she's going to intimidate donald trump and changing his behavior, she clearly doesn't know the man very well. liz: paramount for the president will be the defiant north korea, the regime launching first successful intercontinental ballistic missile test capable of possibly hitting alaska. a paradigm changing missile test. u.s. officials have not seen it before. north korea has a massive
5:08 pm
stockpile of chemical and biological weapons, so sir, the u.n. holding an emergency session of security council over the threat at the request of the u.s., south korea and japan. the u.s. scrambling to update time lines for a hit to los angeles or chicago. a paradigm shift shows north korea is fast overcoming obstacles and could tip missiles with the nukes. it has 20 nuclear warheads. what are your thoughts? >> this is probably the most serious threat we face on an immediate level. they're scrambling, to get the capacity to hit the united states, and crazy enough once they have the capacity, they'll do it, without regard of the consequences. we don't have a lot to expect from the u.n. nikki haley did a great job of making very clear this has to be taken more seriously than the past, but i really believe former ambassador john bolton has the right idea. there's nothing that's going to make this better, short of a
5:09 pm
reunification of the koreas and putting an end to the madman's leadership of north korea. yes, that sounds bold. yes, that sounds surreal that we would have to be talking like that. but you cannot wait until north korea hits a west coast city with a nuclear device and say my gosh, we should have done something. we can't do that. that would be way more of a blunder than anything and not taking the japanese seriously back just before pearl harbor. liz: to your point about regime change. three administrations have tried and failed diplomatically with north korea. president trump is clearly frustrated with china. china, south korea and japan are integral players in the idea of fixing what's going on with the problems of north korea. the president warning beijing, the u.s. is prepared to take action. tweeted before leaving for the g20 --
5:10 pm
now, governor, the president will meet with chinese president xi jinping in the sidelines of the g20 on meeting. what are your expectations there? >> i think a blunt meeting, and i expect the president is going to push back hard and remind him, look, we had a good relationship when we had the dinner miami, but we're expecting china to be the big boy over there in the orient, and prove that you can help stop this incredible threat of kim jong-un. i think he's going to put some real pressure on china. china has got to understand that trading with north korea is not nearly as valuable as trading with the united states and the rest of the civilized world. so do they want to risk trade with the rest of the world just in order to keep some minor issues flowing back and forth with north korea? i don't think so.
5:11 pm
liz: the 25 million people there flooding into china outweigh fears of president trump and the u.s., right? to your point, china would have reacted along the lines that you suggest? >> here's what i think china is afraid of. certainly they don't want the refugees in there. the option is the regime change where north korea establishes part of a united korea or even as a separate nation, but one that's led by somebody who has something between his ears other than helium. kim jong-un is clearly on balance and has no capability of leading a nation when he can't wait to put, you know, a match to the fuse of whatever missile he might be able to get his people to develop that would eventually kill millions of people. this is a madman, a crazy madman. we have to take him seriously. liz: he's already killed millions of people, him and his family.
5:12 pm
brutal and sadistic to his own people. what about tough sanctions that got iran to the negotiating table? i know you may not like that idea. what about foreign businesses and bankers doing business with north korea, including china and iran? >> very important start, liz, and something we ought to do do, it quickly and do it very, very, let's just say, authorityively. do it with a great deal of emphasis and put real sanction on, make it tough on them, isolate them, make it difficult. that puts pressure on the chinese to try and come to some recognition that they're the ones in that neighborhood who have really the most to lose if they don't do something, and i hope that maybe this will all be able to find some resolution with the leaders of governments who are sane. liz: governor mike huckabee, we love having you on. come back soon. >> thank you, liz, great to be back.
5:13 pm
liz: market check, take a look at your money, the dow ending slightly lower, while the nasdaq and s&p 500 close higher with help of retracement of tech stocks. they are gaining today in trading. oil sinking more than 4% settling at $45 a barrel. oil is in a bear market we haven't seen since 1997. year to date down nearly 20%. gas prices dropping down a 12 year low. up next, the pentagon reporting that it did prevail and watched the north korean as it prepared for the launch in advance. the question is could the u.s. shoot down north korean test missiles? we'll discuss that. check back the gas prices hitting 12 year lows, president trump tweeting he wants them lower. how low can they go and where? which states? that's coming up. your insurance company

5:17 pm
. liz: the pentagon says u.s. did watch north korea preparing tuesday's test launch of an icbm. now the rogue nation claims the icbm can carry a large nuclear warhead. some experts believe it has a range to possibly reach alaska or hawaii. secretary of state tillerson calling for global action to hold north korea accountable for pursuing nuclear weapons. joining me, he is retired lieutenant general thomas mcinerney. good to see you, general. >> thank you for having me, liz. liz: how serious is this? since the pentagon evidently saw the launch, could we in any way shoot the test missiles down? can we shoot them down in advance? >> we could, but that doesn't solve the problem of them developing an icbm with a nuclear warhead that can reach the united states. and once you shoot one down or two down, then you're going to have a problem with north korea.
5:18 pm
we have to address that problem, we have to address it, liz, with diplomatic pressure, in the u.n. today and beefed up when the president is in germany at economic conference and with intense pressure, we must have sanctions, economic sanctions, that make anybody dealing with north korea have a great deal of pain, and that means china, because china is supporting youk. liz: yes, 75% of imports and exports that north korea does is with china. so would you support sanctions on individuals, and individual companies in china and iran? that's what we did at getting iran to the negotiating table. go after individuals? >> absolutely. sanction anybody that has an impact so they know we mean business and have to get into the military options and
5:19 pm
discuss them so they really know we mean business. >> okay, so the sanctions there and the display of military power in the region, by the u.s., to show not just north korea but china we're serious now. u.s. and south korean forces fire precision missiles into south korean borders as they show solidarity but kim jong-un is urging scientists to send, quote, gift packages to the yankees. is the dear leader underestimating the power of the u.s. here? >> yes, he is. and to counter, that i would start marshalls ships into the western pacific initially around okinawa and the sea of japan and the yellow sea, so in about a year from now, we have over 100+ u.s. navy ships, 5 carrier battle groups out there. we have a whole b-2 bomber
5:20 pm
force, whole force of stealth bombers, and all the capabilities in japan and guam and south korea. we improve the thad capability, president moon must stop holding out for environmental consideration and reinforce the thad and the ships will be gd 3's and sm missiles that shoot down the north korean missiles and let them know we mean business if these things do not come to fruition, we put theater nuclear force back in south korea. initially, u.s. air force aircraft with u.s. air force pilots and then in europe, south korean pilots with u.s. weapons and hold the keys that control. start talking to japan about them going nuclear and start changing the constitution and prohibition of warfare. all these things must be done.
5:21 pm
liz: some have argued, other people who are experts on north korea say wait a second, north korea is not serious about actually using a missile to hit a u.s. city, that this is along the lines of, quote, hostile diplomacy, it takes hostages and bargains because it needs more rice or needs more products into take care of people who are clearly suffering. what are your thoughts there? i know they've got a half a dozen south koreans and number of u.s. citizens as hostages. do you think north korea really seriously wants to make an offensive move and hit a u.s. city? >> they may not now, but after they've coalesced and collapsed on every issue, they're going to try on more things and if he has a fit of anger, he may do that. we cannot afford to take that chance, no american president can. we've got to be serious, and wrap this all up so china understands creating the pacific area treaty
5:22 pm
organization like nato. start off with south korea, japan, australia, new zealand, thailand and then build other countries in there. philippines and start showing china that we're going to organize in the pacific. not only for what they're arming and aiding and abetting north korea, but the islands that they put out in the south china sea, enough is enough, liz. liz: general thomas mcinerney, thank you so much and thank you for your service to our country. >> thank you, liz. liz: check the 401(k), may own stock of microsoft. it is reportedly set to announce thousands of layoffs worldwide as it focuses on cloud software. tech giant hopes to reorganize sales force to market and sell cloud services to be more competitive with amazon, in that cloud space. microsoft stock ending in the green up more than 1% today. next up, migrants causing more attention in europe.
5:23 pm
we've got one big country there sending troops and armored vehicles to borders to block the influx of refugees. will it be 2015 all over again? you remember that year. and the u.s. tightening up its borders with arrests of illegal immigrants in some cities, more than double under donald trump versus president obama. we'll tell you where coming up.
5:24 pm
5:25 pm

5:27 pm
meantime volvo announcing it will phase out making cars with conventional gas only engines. let's get details from our very own gerri willis. >> reporter: luxury carmaker volvo will start making cars run by only internal combustion engine by 2019, all will be fully electric or hybrid by that time. the announcement makes voefl oat first major automaker to abandon the technology that has fired up the industry for more than 100 years, starting way back to model t in 1908. the couple of's ceo had this to say, this is about the customer, people increasingly demand electrified cars, you can pick and choose whichever
5:28 pm
hybrid sales with periods of high gas prices. somewhere saying the calculation that ever.
5:29 pm
. liz: lot of refugees pouring in from there. this move reflects deep move from vienna over the islam seekers who continue to move across the mediterranean, here at home, illegal immigrant arrests are doubling under president trump. joining me now is the executive director, the retired lieutenant colonel allen west, good to see you. >> good to be with you, liz. liz: when you see the ongoing migrant crisis in europe, why do people criticize president trump when democrats have historically said yes, we have to do that? >> i think have you to understand it's a progressive socialist ideology, they don't respect borders and boundaries and the sovereign status of nations and if you look and read about what is happening with austria, they're challenged by italy because of
5:30 pm
the eu having the open axes across borders. in other words, what italy is saying is that you have no right to block the transit of these individuals and we know that we have heard and seen the evident of isis saying they will infiltrate the refugee masses. we've seen some of these social disorders and the sexual assaults and rapes that have increased in germany and elsewhere across europe. but the real question we have to ask, why aren't countries like qatar and saudi arabia and others take care with stepping up against the refugees. why is the responsibility of western nations to expend resources to do so. liz: good point. these are oil-based countries, let's get to here at home how illegal immigration arrests are doubling in san diego under president trump. last year, 242 arrested.
5:31 pm
i want to get to this quote from president barack obama back in 2006. he said we must stop and deport illegal immigrants, terrorists could come in over poorest borders. we must deny relief to illegal immigrants. illegal immigration is bad for illegal immigrants, bad for the workers against whom they compete. that was president barack obama in 2006. what are your thoughts? >> well, that was senator barack obama in 2006. liz: good point, thank you. >> no problem. that's why have you me oliz, it's a lot different when all of a sudden you are wanting to be president of the united states, and it's about political constituencies and it's about a politicized agenda. so you know, last week we had the passage of kate's law and the passage of sanctuary cities law, and a lot of that was lost in the translation and did not get the type of publicity it needs. we are a sovereign nation and should be protecting borders
5:32 pm
and boundaries and the american people. when you think about the numbers coming out of san diego and other parts of southern california, these are still these have upwards of one million illegal immigrants that are there, many being criminal illegal immigrants. so we don't want to see a repeat of what happened with kate steinle and other americans across our great land. liz: thank you for correcting me, keep it coming. >> i will. my pleasure, liz. liz: this is a disgrace, a new york city police officer killed in cold blood. law enforcement officials say it was assassination. and a horrible weekend in chicago. over 100 people shot over the long weekend. 14 killed. that's more than last year. we have a personal story for you. it affects somebody that you know, after the break. everything in our living room. we replaced it all without touching our savings. yeah, our insurance won't do that. no. you can leave worry behind when liberty stands with you™.
5:33 pm
liberty mutual insurance. dearthere's no other way to say this. it's over. i've found a permanent escape from monotony. together, we are perfectly balanced. our senses awake. our hearts racing as one. i know this is sudden, but they say...if you love something set it free. see you around, giulia
5:34 pm
5:35 pm
5:36 pm
. liz: that is the 911 call for the new york city police officer shot and killed in the line of duty. over the weekend. law enforcement calling it a targeted unprovoked hit, an assassination. 48-year-old miosotis familia was gunned down. miosotis familia was a 12-year veteran of the force and a mother of three. the 34-year-old shooter
5:37 pm
alexander bonds was paroled after serving about 7 years for robbery in upstate new york. he was later killed by officers after he drew a gun at hem. the nypd said bonds had multiple criminal convictions. let's bring in the political panel. they join me now, washington examiner contributor gianno caldwell and scott baldwin. we saw 27 law enforcement officers killed in 2017 this year, gianno. in 2016, 67 murders. these violent acts, police officers assassinated, is a reminder of the risks these brave women and men face each day and you gianno have a personal story. what is your story? >> my story with regards to chicago. but on this note, i tell you it's absolutely disgusting that someone would choose to go after someone that's in our cities to protect us, and i think as citizens we have to be
5:38 pm
vigilantand those who put out social media videos, like the one who committed this egregious crime, he said he was going to be attacking police officers. i think when we see scenarios like this, we got to keep our officers up in prayer and that the "new york times" picture which talked about this incident is any example where i saw police officers, community leaders standing around holding hands in prayer, we got to keep our officers under prayer, seriously. liz: what happened with your family in chicago? >> during memorial day weekend in chicago, my younger brother and two friends were in a car in the south side of chicago, two individuals riddled the car with 25 bullets. my younger sibling lived but his best friend died in his arms. when i think about it, it literally brings tears to my eyes, this is my flesh and blood, and we talk about the systemic issues what happens in
5:39 pm
chicago on a very consistent basis, and what's troubling to me, you got a mayor in the city of chicago, mayor rahm emanuel who to me doesn't care about the citizens of chicago. liz: are you sure he doesn't care? >> let me explain why i believe that he doesn't care. you have an individual who sees the systemic violence that occurs on a daily basis and he protects, protects those who seek to wreak havoc on those by not allowing the police to do their job. police officers are in fear of going into certain neighborhoods. >> gianno, that's not true. >> it is true. i'm sorry, this is the thing, i'm from chicago, i know the city of chicago very well and talk to people on a consistent basis, i'm there very consistently. scott, i apologize, i know that you have a point of view. liz: let's get on your point. chicago is seeing more violence.
5:40 pm
we had more than 100 people shot. 14 fatally last year -- excuse me, 14 fatally this year. 66 people were shot over the july 4th weekend. mr. boldon, what are your thoughts about this? >> let me say, this i was born in chicago. live in a suburb, joel yet, illinois that houses a lot of the bad actors. i can't say the mayor or the police do not care. what i can say is this problem is broader than law enforcement. it's broader than drugs and violence and gangs. most of these shootings are from gangs and drug dealers and it's a holiday, you have the gatherings and the bad actors if you will. the reality is to change the tide, if you will. to change the killing fields of chicago and other urban centers, okay? we need federal resources and state resources but need them in education. health care, education, entrepreneurship, jobs and job training.
5:41 pm
hold on one second, gianno. you can lock them all up, if you want, right? and still have violence on the streets. what we need is alternative to a gun, drugs, to being a gang member by giving jobs and job training. you got to look at it this way. >> i understand, scott. gianno, to scott's point. illinois' economic growth flat lining at 0.8% for the last four, five years, and to scott's point, said this about ferguson, baltimore, you give somebody a job, they're less likely to pick up a gun and shoot somebody. this is an ongoing fight about the need to get people working and the policies with the state of illinois, so disastrous, 700,000 people have left the state over the last decade. >> including my brother. liz: hang on, scott, go ahead, gianno. >> including my brother who we had to move out of state of illinois a week after it happened to california where he can be safe. if you're an african-american man in the city of chicago
5:42 pm
between the ages of 18 and 24, 47% of the individuals are unemployed or out of school. we know this is a serious issue in terms of black unemployment. in the state it's the highest. when we think about the state that's ran by democrats who hasn't done much for the african-american community in there, who am i to blame? the people that are there, or the elected officials who claim they care about the people. rahm emanuel does not care about black folks, i can say that clearly because the laquan mcdonald story told the city. sanctuary cities and making sure he can solidify the hispanic vote to win the re-election. liz: we gotta wrap. mr. bolden you will get crack at next go around. >> the republican governor of illinois and the legislature. >> he just took over, sir? >> they had prior governors too. liz: thank you so much. going to be back in a little bit. the liberal media focusing
5:43 pm
on senate republicans bickering over the obama replacement bill. my next guest says you're not going to like what you hear. it's going to hit your wallet. watch.
5:44 pm
5:45 pm
5:46 pm
. liz: welcome back, when members of congress return next week from their 4th of july break, senators are going to go back to working on repealing and replacing obamacare while legislators debate the finer points of the plan, grover norquist says there is really, really good news for the middle class that he's found. liberal media not reporting it. good to have you on the show, grover. you're saying massive tax relief. 700 billion dollars in tax breaks is that what you found? >> the senate bill reduces taxes by 700 billion. it's a good number. what's not reported in the press is the number of those
5:47 pm
taxes that directly hit the middle class. remember, obama when he ran for office and when he sold us obamacare said no one who made less than $250,000 a year would ever pay anything, not a nickel, not a penny, in higher taxes. in point of fact, quite a number of the obamacare taxes directly hit the middle class. if viewers ask do you have a flexible savings account for health care? 30 million americans do. obamacare damaged and taxed the fsa's, flexible savings accounts, the republican plan ends that and stops the taxes on flexible savings account. if you have a health savings account, 20 million americans do. the obamacare taxes damage health savings accounts. millions pay a penalty tax because they don't want obamacare and chose not to buy it. they paid $600 as an individual
5:48 pm
or $2,000 family of four for the privilege of not buying obamacare. okay? that's a tax that is immediately gotten rid of by the republicans. no more punishing people because they don't buy what obama thinks you need to buy for health care. >> the point is obamacare was so great, why did seven to eight million people say we're going to pay the mandate tax. there are other nickel and dime things that hit the middle class that the media did not focus on. medical deductions and the like. president obama and the democrats are equal opportunity tax increasers hitting the middle class with, this right, grover? >> when you said it's nickel and dime. ten million americans were hit by obama deciding to make it more difficult to deduct medical care costs if they were more than 10% of your income. now rich people don't have health care costs above 10% of income.
5:49 pm
very ill, lower income, middle income people can get stuck with that. 10 million americans were damaged by obamacare's taxes to pay quote, unquote to pay for obamacare by taxing the sickest americans. liz: grover norquist, we love having out show. come back soon. >> certainly. liz: coming up, a new report shows a big drop in the number of people, the people who can work, those people went on food stamps, now those people are not getting food stamps. we'll explain why and where next. you always pay

clinton's welfare reforms. those reforms basically said if you are able-bodied, you should not be on food stamps. president obama said as states can you reverse that, let able-bodied people go back on food stamps. bring back gianno caldwell and scott bolden. do the figures show dramatic drop in states that say to able-bodied people, get off food stamps, does it show it works? >> on its face it certainly does. i'm a former chair of the d.c. chamber of commerce, at the risk of sounding like a republican, i had no problem with putting people back to work. liz: you sound like bill clinton. >> i know. he was a moderate democrat, right? i have no problem with that, so long as we are moving them off the rolls with great job training and jobs that will allow them to not only make the minimum wage, but beyond. give them that job training so that they'll never return to those rolls. now the biggest problem the liberal democrats, my colleagues have, is it's one

thing to move them to workfare, another thing to say you got to work at minimum wage job and we're going to cut off your benefits, if you will, even though you don't have a job. liz: scott, i think the democrats have a lot of work to do. this is not our parent's jfk party anymore. they're so adverse to businesses who could hire people. i hear what you're saying. the voice needs to be heard more on the democratic party. gianno, cnn being accused of blackmailing the guy who built and created this meme of president trump beating up cnn. cnn reportedly threatening to reveal his identity if he posted this material in the future. what do you think, gianno? apparently this guy has unsavory views but they're saying to him, we will let you stay anonymous so long as you toe the line. >> i agree with most of scott's

point on that. we definitely need to get people back to work. on the point with cnn from what i read, looks like this guy is apologizing, he deleted his account. to release his names when things are so hot politically, there could be violence or threats on his life. i think it is dangerous for a news organization to even say we may potentially, when they know there's potential harm that can come to the individual. liz: we reserve the right to keep his name either public or private. i hear you, scott. cnn, seems cnn is trying to reportedly protect him. what are your thoughts? >> yeah, really quickly, i don't think so in the sense that my reporting and my reports that i've read is that cnn reached out to this individual. they identified who he was to talk with him. they never talked with him, and then he did the apology not only for this tweet or putting

that cnn piece together with trump but apologized for some of the other prior races and anti-semitic images he hid behind a code name. now cnn released his name, we'd be having a different discussion by my conservative friends and say how could you do that? now they just put up because they want to be transparent, they're going to reserve the right to use his name going forward. that was the safest bet, if you will -- liz: hang on, scott, they're journalists, shouldn't they just be acting like journalists and reporting? >> i think they are -- liz: hang on, they're saying we reserve the right to keep his name private. that sounds like coercion. we're going to keep your name private so long as you toe the line. go ahead. i'm not in the business of bashing folks, but that's pretty dangerous at this point. liz: thank you so much, gianno and scott. we'll be right back. don't go away.
