4:14 am
tonight i want to correct two elements of last night broadcast in which we focused on two republican senators. steve daines and david perdue. the meeting with chinese premi premier, i just want to say about all of it, i express my concern last night, that their presence might undercut u.s. and chinese negotiations but we learned today that that meeting had been approved by the president, treasury secretary mnuchin, and robert lighthizer, and i also want to correct a report that senator dane shared
4:15 am
history of outsourcing u.s. jobs. he says he was in no way responsible for the loss of p&g jobs while he worked to expand the company's production in china 20 years ago. my apologies tonight to both senators. and today this is what the president had to say. [inaudible] did you approve that meeting ? >> i predict my people approved. china asked for the meeting, they have a lot of respect for senator dane and covenanter perdue, they are doing it for testing job, i approved of it and all they did was say we really have bipartisan support. if you look at it, and the support is very serious, we are not playing games. that was a message that was given by senator perdue and senator daines and given very strongly, they absolutely have my permission and they also
4:16 am
spoke to ambassador lighthizer and secretary mnuchin about the trip before they went there. >> the two senators, i find very careful in the wording, talking about a level playing field. i would still prefer those two senators, i would prefer the all the republican senators and the senate stand up and give this president the credit he deserves for putting tariffs on chinese goods, for courage that is taken to do so. i would like them to hear use the words tariffs, not level playing field but balanced trade in insisting upon a change and a conduct in the balance of trade between the united states and china. it is time for republicans to stand up in both houses and support this president. that said, that is the correction, i still expect a lot
4:17 am
more of both senators in the republican party on capitol hill in both houses. , let's turn to the radical leftist, on the san francisco board of supervisors in particular. the board has passed a resolution, declaring the national rifle association to be a domestic terrorist organization. this comes weeks after the supervisors passed a resolution. rebranding convicted felons as justice involved persons. in october of 2015, two months after he was killed by an illegal immigrant, the supervisors voted unanimously to keep the city century status. then, supervisor melia cowans said at the time, we cannot allow them to dictate 25 years of the city policies toward undocumented immigrants. it is interesting that it took one noted instance and that is a shooting at the fair in
4:18 am
california to change your mind about the direction they would go with the nra. it is quite an interesting state right now. 2020 democratic hopeful and spiritual guru, marianne williamson claiming the radical dems, the democratic party for their meanness and their lives. williamson telling the new yorker, i know this sounds naïve, i did not think the left was so mean. i did not think the left light like this. i thought the right did that. i thought we were better. not so. joining us tonight, reagan white house political director and fox business political analyst, the dean himself a republican strategist in this country, and rollins. first marianne williamson, her discovery. [laughter] she is in a race with cannibal. >> i'm very happy for her, she
4:19 am
is not to go many places as a valuable candidate, having been in the trenches for 15 years with democrats, they are tough and play the game in a hardball way and they basically do whatever it takes to win and that is a mark of politics. >> i will not mention any names, i was talking with a leading it was unfortunate had to be about party politics. and they are playing the part of the naïve impassive and the left is filled with them denim and viciousness. >> republicans basically seek politics as a hobby, democrats. >> democrats he had at as a lifelong occupation. in which it can change radically just as the board of supervisors and san francisco, i'm very
4:20 am
familiar with and grown up in the bay area many years ago, they basically don't believe in jails and criminals in anything. >> just to show even for the case, a state assembly in california, past to give 16 -year-olds the right to vote. lou: where was that? >> california, 16 -year-olds are still plain games in high school and they are not ready to vote in an 18-year-old was because young men and vietnam were 18 years old, if you're gonna fight for your life in the country you should be able to vote. >> what would you say about 16 -year-olds if you're going to do what, get the keys from daddy? >> they just keep trying to brown the base that they can influence and the reality is, california is a law state. >> what about new york? >> new york is an equal place, those two big states, in a
4:21 am
republican running for president, president trump or anyone else there probably five, six we both behind before they even start. >> you have to make it up elsewhere. >> 16 resignations already. >> five in texas, huawei hope this is not a trend, we sell a trend in the reality is, what you have to understand the president and leader mccarthy, this election is set up for reinforcement up to 20. and let's get the president reelected in a large number of the house. >> let me ask you this, this seems to be what it boils down to. when talking about senators daines and purdue. doing what the president had approved ammunition in lighthizer, at the same time the voice on this was so -- the words lather as they level the playing field you're not talking
4:22 am
about trillions of dollars, we're talking about an exponential threat as the president stated to the united states and i'm talking about china is exactly that. and we cannot even get from the republican party in the house or the republicans in the senate, vigorous support for this president in advance of an election that is now within the next year end a half. >> is going to be a very close election. we specifically talked about it. and people have to understand, we could lose the presidency and trump is been a great president. >> people have to understand, what about the senators in the house and the publican. >> in this battle as deep as any as i've seen in the last 50 years, there is a lot of steak, houses at state, the senate can be at stake. >> why in the world, what kind of person is sitting in the house of representatives are the
4:23 am
senate who does not come back and just were like a lion and go get them. there are no liens that i can see. >> in the two gentlemen in the senate who were in china should be telling the president is supported by the country. >> they did that and basically we will go back there and keep fighting. >> i've not heard anything public about it, give a press conferencing here's what we found out. >> i am getting tired of what is basically the republican response to the viciousness that is highly energized viciousness of the democratic party. they basically say, we will write a strong letter. we may hold a hearing someday. it's just nonsense. they are effete, evident and they are not worthy of support
4:24 am
if they don't go to work for the president. i think you will agree with me, even this president wins the election in 2020 or the republican party may be what many of the democrats hope and that is a thing of the past. >> and in the midterm, 40 seats in a battle to hold the senate in 2020 in addition to the presidency, every republican who cares deeply these to be fully engaged. >> fully engaged. i think they ought to be mad as hell and should go after one of these issues that are trying to instill severed this president and his policies, it is beyond comprehension. >> instead of being embarrassed, which many of them are. lou: excuse me. i'm not one to keep fighting to get this thing all done again.
4:25 am
>> thanks so much. i appreciate it. up next, president trump backs boris johnson, the deliver on brexit. >> he is a friend of mine and he is going at it, no question about it. i watched him this morning, he is in there fighting. and he knows how to win, boris knows how to win. >> a new poll shows how popular president trump is among republican voters, we take that up with the chair of the republican national committee, we have a few quick messages and we will be talking with her.
4:26 am
4:27 am
4:28 am
4:29 am
lou: president trump may when a new victory to contribute more to nato under the new u.s. backed proposal, american contribution today would fall from 22% to almost 60% beginning
4:30 am
in 2021. your money would be forced to increase its share from 50% to 60% and perhaps they can pay what they're obligated to that would be a very refreshing turn of events. boris johnson suffering the parliament boatin voting for tho deal brexit. you ask what was theresa may doing all that time, that is your answer. parliament today voted against johnson's motion for october 15. he is in a mess. the justice department here speaking of messes, facing increasing pressure in court and on capitol hill to release key documents pertaining to the origins of the fbi russia collusion investigation. the special counsel investigation. the senate judiciary committee
4:31 am
asking for declassification of documents related to michael flynn and finds legal team is asking the court to review part of the inspector general's spending report on fisa abuses. joining us tonight, charlie hurt, washington opinion editor and fox business contributor, great to have you with us.. lou: let's start with the idea that we might find something out about spy gate, we still don't have the scope of the most, we don't know what happened to the anthony weiner for crying out loud, we don't know what nsa will not provide us, the investigators in the justice department with copies of the so-called missing e-mails because that's what it is, because those are retained by the nsa. >> absolutely nothing is more important than going back and
4:32 am
getting to the bottom of the origins of the investigation in the first place. as you could've said from the very beginning, what we had here, you had administration, these of the fact that we no, and a ministration using american spying apparatus despite of political opponents at the height of a presidential election, those are all known, undisputed facts and that should terrify every american regardless of what your political stripe is, and the idea that all of the information has not been revealed, shows two things, how these people are. and also how terrified they are of what is going to happen when the information desk amount. lou: it seems every reason to be
4:33 am
very concerned about the republican party. there is not enough energy within the republican party itself, aligned interest to this point to actually stand up for this president, stand up for the mecca people, it is as if they are so used to the chamber of commerce, the business roundtable, wall street, corporate america, right now they are confused about the fact that they are in charge of the senate, they are in charge of the white house. in the act like they are awaiting orders, they may be doing that in just have not received them from goldman sachs in the business roundtable. but this is an opportunity for them and only opportunity they got, to sport the president and drive him to victory in 2020. >> he put your finger on the exact reason why, he shot to the
4:34 am
top of the field for republicans and one the erection because he is not afraid, he is willing to go and willing to stand for stuff. he is willing to make negotiations whether to china, iran or democrats domestically, there is nobody he's not willing to sit down and negotiate with it such a breath of fresh air and republicans run into the arms of a guy that is willing to stand up for the principal. lou: this president, it seems to me, he has done more than any president in modern history. and no one has presented an economy like this, this is a man who is deregulated at a rate not even imagined but achieved by any of his predecessors. he is turning the calculus on international trade, china is, i believe fully comprehending now that this president is not one
4:35 am
to be trifled with. this is extraordinary. the holdouts, on appropriate credit and respect for the rhinos of the republican party and they had to be at the capacity to create grie great pn 2020. >> think about what this president is up against in his effort to secure the border. he is up against, not only democrats but also members of his own party, he is up against -- >> he stop the construction of the wall that president trump is now building. and then beyond this, the federal courts are completely standing the fort, and despite all of them. we have to run, i appreciated as
4:36 am
always. great to see you. thank you so much, we will take up your book in an entire segment. >> still waiting. what a lovely time. up next, new signs of republican party is the party of trump. i'll take it up with a
4:37 am
4:38 am
4:39 am
lou: more great news for the president. a new poll shows republicans are more supportive of president trump and they are good republican party.
4:40 am
in the herbert harris poll 42% of republicans or independents leaning republicans and say they are more supportive of donald trump and the republican party. that's up three points from last month republicans who say they are more supportive of the party fell from 30% to 26%. joining us tonight rnc chair "rhoda" daniel and great to see you. let's start with this harvard harris poll. even though it has mixed news for the party the fact that you have a standard bearer like the president in these circumstances is about the best news there popular party has going into 2020, isn't it? >> the great thing for the party to have the president leading our party and someone who expands are based and attracts voters who have an eyes looked at the republican party. part of the reason why he won in 2016 and every candidate on the
4:41 am
ballot in 2020 is going to benefit from that base of the president brings to the polls because he will help everybody down ticket and help us maintain our majority in the senate and win back the house. there are people who will vote for president trump that won't show up for their candidates. >> winning back the house is looking like a tall order. it's incredible to me republicans retiring and fully one third are in the state of texas and bill florest the latest. that looks like a pill work for the republican party could hang onto the state of texas that was which was inconceivable just four years ago. >> i feel very good about texas. governor abbott had a very decisive when in 2018. he's a very popular governor. we do see these retirements between every election is
4:42 am
typical. remember we only have to flip 18 seats in the house to win back the house. i think every republican should be looking out how do we keep the senate and take back the house and absolutely reelect the president. lou: who is helping decide who the candidates will be for your party because i've got to tell you what i saw the senate do in 2016, 2018 was frankly i thought some measure in certain numbers absolutely unfathomable. the congressional candidates many of them lost most of them. they didn't have the sense to support the president. they didn't have the credentials to win on their own. what are you going to do to assure the republican party doesn't tear itself to pieces going into this critical critical presidential election year? >> yes the nail on the head lou candidates matter and that's why president trump is more
4:43 am
populated within our party with than any other candidate can he also brings in independents and republicans. the arms of the house recruit candidates but ultimately the voters decide who will go into that general election what we have seen with the republican base is they support candidates that support this present time and time again. lou: support this president and then you have senator pat toomey the president is clearly winning in the trade war and by the way it's only a stalemate right now. he will win it at great pain with communist china to pat toomey the ongoing trade war. imagine because it shows his lack of understanding of economics, his lack of understanding about the trade relationship itself with china. he's saying it could absolutely hammer the u.s. economy. this is mysterious and as i said
4:44 am
unfathomable. >> the status quo with china hammers the u.s. economy this is a president who stood up to china. he ran out and he said we are not going to be taken advantage of the. we are going to let countries take advantage of our workers of our manufacturing base and he has done so with strength boldness and with resolve. lou: why can't we use those words with members of the senate and the house with strength and resolve. are you kidding? those words are relevant to most of the members of the house and the senate. >> we have have resolved many when you look at joe biden joe biden says china is not a competitor. china would love joe biden because then they can take advantage of america. lou: by the way most of the republican establishment candidates the rhinos as you well know are like puppies
4:45 am
rolling over for their kibble. ron others one other thing i want to conclude with very quickly. a recent poll from harris again the harvard cat harris poll for the hill i believe, 67% say that it is necessary to confront china's trade practices. this despite the majority surveyed who acknowledged the suggestion that the tariffs will slow down our economy as well. you can argue the point and i personally think it's nonsense. it's to continue to be the for the rest of the world. >> the president is absolutely right in you and we know he's not going to plank. he recognizes that we have been taken advantage of. lou: i'm not worried about the president. what is your party going to do
4:46 am
with that? what in the world are we going to see from your party? we have the leader in the fleeting. >> as rnc chair we are out talking to voters every day. i hear from farmers, here for manufactures. tell the president thank you for staying strong. lou: . lou: what did they say to tell those rhino senators and those rhino congressman? >> naysay stand with the president on this. he's doing the right thing. otherwise we will be taken advantage of by china for years and years and decades to come. this is the time to stand paul. lou: ronna mcdaniel the best leader the rnc has had in many a year. >> thank you lou, thank you. lou: up next of former new york -- changes his tune about using the fed as a political weapon. we will have that and more right after the
4:47 am
4:48 am
4:49 am
4:50 am
lou: i hope you're wondering about the direction of the economy and the strength. this is the part of the show where we will turn to two folks
4:51 am
to get the answers for the question. president bill w is not one of them, he is spending his time defending comments that he made with the question irrational fashion urging the federal reserve to actually undermine president trump's 2020 reelection. a lot of people thought he was a fairly bright fellow until recently. he wrote today, i wrote the article to express my concern that the president have placed the negative economic consequences of his trade war on the feet of the fed and they have not pushed back against it more forcibly. i was not, he said he claimed he averred, not tried to suggest that the feds should take signs at the upcoming election. the hell he was not. join me tonight, the economist at the institute, managing director and chief economist at moody's, great to have you both here. let me start with, dudley's cut
4:52 am
abilitcredibility it is a comple failure as a political fed operator. >> he to a new low, my god, this man has truly done the equivalent of telling a fighter, going to the next round and pull your punches. the job at the fed is to ensure maximum employment and price stability regardless of whatever shock hit the economy. their job is to make sure we got the growth to move the economy forward. he is telling them, let whatever market -. lou: raise those rates. >> our mission to say i'm a former fed staffer. lou: you know, it's good you did not rise much higher. john, as bill said, i thought it
4:53 am
was interesting that he qualified it a little bit a new low for fed officials, there are lower lows for current fed officials apparently. >> is trying to politicize the fed which is a foolish thing to do. the last thing that we need is a federal reserve where they conduct monetary policy according to whether or not they think fiscal policy is appropriate by default they could care less about economic performance. i don't think that will happen anytime soon. lou: what will happen anytime soon? i want to get both of you to answer this. where are we headed right now with this economy. we have a cautery o who has losa lot of money by the way over the course of the past year or two trying to tell us that were in a new direction because of technical reasons, whatever it may be, they are talking on the
4:54 am
market and talking down the economy. >> there is a manufacturing slowdown around the world. it is showing up in the united states and no question about it. manufacturing is only 11% of the economy, it is very small share, important share of what president trump is trying to say, we'll fix manufacturing, not by just playback manufacturing, we will pull back the highest value added jobs in nature we get trade partners who will share our gain. we will take the huge deficit that we have a china, covered up and give it to the new trading partners who are willing to be part of the resurgence of manufacturing in the united states and that among trading partners. lou: and the hill, the new survey. 67%, a very important survey i think of american supporting presidents tariffs, they understand what this is about. i do not hear what the same discussion and debate about tariffs. we have a very clear view of
4:55 am
what the president is doing. >> let me say, the slowdown in global manufacturing is not entirely the consequence of this trade conflict between the united states and china. this also has something to do with a massive buildup of inventory late last year end early this year. i think, that is something that you want to keep an eye on, i think is a good chance the u.s. economy will go ahead and continue to grow, we have pretty good news on auto sales for the month of august. lou: how much does the market go up tomorrow? >> 150-point down jones. lou: thank you so much. lou: thank you so much. liberty mutual customizes your car insurance, so you only pay for what you need. i wish i could shake your hand. granted. only pay for what you need. ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪
4:56 am
4:57 am
4:58 am
4:59 am
lou: stocks closing higher. the nasdaq rose 103 points. a reminder to listen to my reports three times a day coast to coast on the salem radio network. president trump today defended his decision to divert $3.6 million from military construction to build a wall on the sornts border saying when you have thousands of people trying to rush our border and drugs pouring into our country,
5:00 am
that's a national issue. we'll be coming to you from washington, d.c. tomorrow. please join us. thanks for being with us. lauren: it is 5:00 a.m. here are your top stories. heading back to the table, the u.s. and china confirming the spoke over the phone today and agreed to meet early next month for their firs 13th round of tre negotiations, this news giving dow a jump of 285 points. ashley: hurricane dorian picking up strength again, upgraded to a category 3 as it churns towards the carolinas. millions yo along the east coast are in the crosshairs. lauren: joe biden down playing recent gaffes on late night tv but did he make another one? how he got blind-sided at a climate change town hall.
