6:02 am
thank you so much. we have been covering on the program recently the constant odds lot of credit and his bid for the white house may actually help them in the polls and primaries. take a look at this list. former presidential candidate mitt romney. the national review. the ceo of apple tim cook and karl rove to bow out of the race. the dallas pastor was one of the first people on the show to identify the trend almost a month ago. >> you have to hand it to the pope. he's been able to pull off what nobody on earth to do and that is churned donald trump into a martyr. this is only going to help term. i believe the pope is sincere. he's just sincerely wrong on this issue. maria: aside again but trump wanted three out of four states. good to see you, sir.
6:03 am
thank you for joining us. why do you think any attempt to take him down is actually helping him? >> you know, it is interesting what you are seeing another story getting ready to get told it's not just the political establishment. it is the religious establishment. last week your two major religious publications and christianity today but not with the attacking donald trump. the more they rail against him, but more he rises in the polls. people in the pew are just like voters everywhere. they don't want the establishment whether it be the political is that bush made the religious establishment telling them for whom to vote. people want an outsider. maria: that is absolutely bottom-line. dagen mcdowell, lee carter, what are your thoughts? dagen: a lot of people were looking at results from saturday saying donald trump outlasting.
6:04 am
he hurt himself in the debate. you saw how would the louisiana other day of voters went for ted cruz and everybody was trying to use that to show cracks in the trump candidacy. lo and behold the pretty pulled off last night. i want to ask the pastor because you do see evangelicals. he sat in michigan going for donald trump if you think that's a change when they might've voted for a more overtly religious candidate and is this different you think? >> yes, it is. there has been a seismic shift in what a lot of evangelicals are looking for. there is a minimum threshold of conservatives and you have to have to get the evangelical vote. a couple weeks ago when trump was here in fort worth, he asked me to come on stage and address a group. i talked about the fact that trump is pro-life. he is for religious liberty. that is enough for most social
6:05 am
conservatives right now. but they are looking for is a leader. people feel like they are tired of the status quo which ronald reagan set is latin for the mess we are in. most evangelicals filigree or numbness and waiting for a leader. >> i do question about this. i've been talking to voters out there and i tag to send evangelicals to correct me and said you can say that trump is anti-christian. but he claims to be a christian. so who am i to judge whether or not he is a christian? what would be said about? >> what i would say to that when trump holds up his bible, most evangelicals get it. he is sending a message, saying the way may not be exactly like you in every way, and they say like you and don't hate you. whenever barack obama talks about conservative christians, he cannot hide his contempt,
6:06 am
telling them to get off their high horses and clinging to their guns and bibles. people are tired of that in looking for somebody that donald trump who will show summers right for evangelicals. maria: so much so that they don't want substance in terms of what he may do on the policy front. they want to know somebody will be in the white house who is going to be tough and protecting fight for america. >> let me say this, maria. i said at the rally a couple weeks ago, but, a lot of people make out donald trump's pro-life conversion, but nobody is suggesting hillary clinton attended pro-life conversion. she doesn't claim it. there may be doubt about donald jones follows is. there are no doubts about hillary clinton policies. she will be the most pro-abortion president in history if elected or not is what is motivating evangelicals to go for donald trump. they want somebody who can beat hillary clinton and i think he may be the best option.
6:07 am
maria: that is a fair point. what do you think about florida? dagen: the big loser last night was marco rubio. and a major way if you look at super tuesday, he got at a minimum cleared 80% of the vote and all the super tuesday contests. he hasn't reached the numbers in them. he had his two were showing for mississippi and michigan. maria: wouldn't drop out before florida? >> i don't think he will. if you really want someone besides trump to win, he probably should. but i don't think he will appear beside him drop like a lead balloon. people are saying he just wasn't true to himself. he lost his way. his authenticity was totally unquestioned. dagen: as soon as he started cracking jokes and making fun of donald trump's web mustache. even if that is him, we haven't seen that marco rubio until then and people don't trust it.
6:08 am
they don't believe it. >> what we know right now is voters want someone authentic, who is who they say they are because they've been so disappointed over and over again. dagen: trump calling him little rubio and why you tdd. but she challenges.accusing people of lying. not very becoming, is that? >> look, i have said who would like to give it ice? you have $10 million at the top of the polls. what he's doing seems to be working. but don't lose sight of the bigger story. the bigger story is ted cruz should've won the south. with a few exceptions a few exceptions i was trying to marched through the south like general sherman and now that we are out of this outcome of map will do that better for trump and worse for cruz. maria: good to see you, sir. thank you so much.
6:09 am
that said: which is very cal thomas said. jo ling kent with a closer look at the breakdown there. >> good morning. donald trump dominated in michigan and mississippi with the help of the said voter. plus those angry take a look at exit polls show 57% of those people voted for donald trump. 32% went with senator ted cruz. also looking at how trump did with the evangelical and conservative base. we see among evangelical christians in the gop primary, 48% went for donald trump for 38% went for cruz. certainly taken core support as well. let's look at the mississippi democratic race. big race for hillary clinton. 90% of blood voters than for hillary clinton. they made up 64% of the total vote to african-americans carried her to victory. they also say her policies are more realistic.
6:10 am
it is a very surprising tirade in michigan for the democrats. look out young voters 18 to 29 euros going for senator sanders. hillary clinton for those who want to beat republicans in november, she says they dominated. 73% went for clinton so a tight race at michigan and dramatic night overall. that you cared maria: thank you so much. one top-level american states and visit the region. the man suspect that shooting a pastor who led a campaign rally has been caught. you'll never believe where he was caught. it is all coming up. stay with us.

best person -- person with the best chance to stop the trump train. donald trump led in every pre-election poll. a couple one back in january, one of february that had it not a double-digit. he was at 37%. he underperformed as last volt. he lost a lot of momentum last week. he was hurt by the romney speech and also the negative publicity that was heaped on him last week. as for rubio, he got no delegates here. he was doing well. he campaigned before the idaho primary. he had been rallies in the idaho falls and also in boise. but he did not do well. a 16% he takes no delegates. you have to get 20% of the threshold to get at least some delegates. marco rubio got shut out. 32 delegates will be split between ted cruz and trump with
6:24 am
ted cruz getting the lion's share. a big night in idaho for senator cruz. maria: sure was. dan springer. donald's big win last night might've been overshadowed on social media. on the heels of that commerce attacks, front runner failed business last week, trump wanted his water, magazines, wind during his election night press conference. >> he said there's company and by the way, you want to take one, we'll charge you 50 bucks at stake. maria: some ended up on the floor. showing one of the steaks fine on the ground and somebody picking it up and putting it back on the tray seemingly oblivious. upon closer inspection, it turns out the steaks weren't even trump. you can see in the photo they are displaying a bush brothers label. how weird is that?

hospitals? if you are a businessperson, you actually meet a payroll, and they can produce as the customers either buy or don't buy it. if you are government, you can fail and keep taking money from other people and keep going. people are sick of it. maria: it did look like an infomercial. if the welfare tv, you are like okay i'm watching tv to you. >> he was standing there and on sunday walks up to get the mag. what on earth is he doing? and then you got it. he was also like look at this big party and throwing. irony planned it. maria: and you know what? they were eating it up. dagen: and that winery. at the virginia and we take great pride in that. i think he thought that winery at a read. as john fluky spikes on it and he bought it out of bankruptcy. he employs people in the state

6:33 am
about millions and millions of people whereas the democrats are down 30, 35%. i actually think it's the biggest story in politics today and i hope that the republicans will embrace it. we have -- don't forget we have democrats coming over. >> peter: trump also won in hawaii with 46% of the vote, cruz was second there as well, in mississippi 47%, ted cruz with 36%. ted cruz did come in first in i/dd, he got 45.4%. that's the only one he did not win. on the democratic side, michigan went to bernie sanders, he squeaked it out with just a half under half, 49.9%. here is sanders. >> so we started this campaign
6:34 am
as many will remember ten months ago, we were 60 or 70 points down in the polls and yet what we have seen is poll after poll, state after state, what we have done is created a kind of momentum that we need to win. so once again, this has been a fantastic night in michigan. >> peter: and for trump here in mimp gain it was specially important for him to w because he's been targeting blue-collar voters in industrial states, it wasn't clear that the strategy was going to win. >> maria: pretty unbelievable. justice department issuing an appeal to overturn a federal judge's ruling which protects apple from unlocking an iphone in the new york drug case. apple squares off with the fbi over encryption as it relates to the san bernardino terrorists.
6:35 am
nbc polls americans are divided on this debate between privacy and national security. 47% they are worried that the government won't go far enough in monitoring terrorists communications while 44% say they're worried the government will go too far. joining me right now cyrus, thank you so much for being with us. make the case that you have many phones to get into to complete cases to get to drug peddlers. >> we have now 205 cases, just in cyber alone, doesn't take nypd for which we have gotten search warrants but we cannot
6:36 am
acquire. >> maria: how unusual getting the information you need? >> it's not unusual. it will issue subpoenas or search warrants to get information relevant to the case. so apple decided, however, to change its practices that it have used prior to 2014 and actually open the devices in response to search warrant by the court. now they can't, so they cannot. maria, you've been speaking about this as a national security issue and i don't debate that at all but i'm really here as the manhattan district attorney and speak on behalf of local and state law enforcement around the country, rape, robbery, murder, child abuse, as well as in my jurisdiction terrorism, the inability of state and local law enforcement to be able to access the information in these devices, which we know criminals are using to communicate and know that the criminals know we
6:37 am
can't get in is going -- is having an impact on our ability to do our job. apple speaks on behalf of its customers. i want apple to speak on behalf of the customers that are victim of crime that may not have a path toward justice because we cannot get access to the information necessary to do our job. >> bill gates weighing on the case yesterday showing sympathy but a balance also must be kept between the two sides. how do we get the balance, he writes in that letter to customers f the government can use the all act to make it easier to unlock the iphone it would have the power to reach into anyone's device, it could expand breach of privacy, access your health records, financial data, track your location and even access your phone, microphone or camera without your knowledge. >> two responses, the court is issue it is search warrants.
6:38 am
prosecutor doesn't write it and send it to apple by him or herself. we have to convince court and the court makes the decision and the court agrees that device should be opened and we -- this process has been used to gain access to homes, bank faults, to cars, to any area where crime -- criminal evidence is believed by the court to exist. apple engineering the device in history and i think it's an attempt to have a device that will sell well, but first and foremost is the court not the prosecutor. the second point is that apple up until ios7 proceeding the introduction of the default encryption device software, apple was promoting ios7 as secure and also was promoting its ability and responsibility to work with law enforcement to
6:39 am
gain access to criminal investigations, what changed? i don't know whether it was a security issue or public relations problem, but we need to solve this and what i believe we need to do, maria, have the u.s. senate and the u.s. congress exercise their responsibility. apple has decided on its own and google that it's going to draw the line way over here where it happens to coincide with economic self-interest. i believe that the decision of how government can access devices is only going to be decided by independent legislators, having a debate on this, making a decision, we have to move forward. >> maria: you want congress to move. we had general this week and he had important comments about it as well. i will say he was siding, he was siding with apple. listen to general hayden. >> i think apple is technologically correct when they say doing what the fbi
6:40 am
wants them to do in the case, will make the technology, encryption weaker than it would otherwise be. so i get why the fbi wants to get into the phone but we make trade-offs like this all of the time and this may be a case where we've got to give up something in law enforcement and even counterterrorism in order to preserve this aspect, our cybersecurity. >> maria: is there a broader trade-off here that we are giving something up if apple allows the government to force them to create this new software? >> well, maria, again, the government through the independent analysis of courts has been gaining access to evidence over the last 200 years guided by the fourth amendment, there's really nothing new about this. what is new that apple has created a technology, device encryption and created a right to privacy around the technology they created. at the end of the day, whatever
6:41 am
the general says and what i would say is let me understand what to tell victims of crime, mothers whose children have been murdered, victims of sexual assault. we have to look at it through national lens, it's one problem, in tens of thousands of cases a year in this country access to devices is going to be made impossible because of this -- of this default, encripg that's -- encryption. i'm looking to the senate and also to the house to play a role here. my only view is that prosecutors and crime victims can't do nothing, they have to do something. it's really an important case. >> maria: manhattan da is doing
6:42 am
a great job and when i see first responders, it gets me upset. >> we are very lucky to have the best police force. >> maria: i know it. we will see you soon. coming up, a big announcement, nfl star walking away from the game early on his own terms. is this the new trend? return of hbo's game of thrones as the trailer is released.

some of trump's success is the fact that he's keeping things simple, giving the electorate basic policy proposals. >> he is, trump has a very clear narrative, make america clear again. you go to his website, immigration, china, guns, jobs, i mean, it could not be more simple. each one has a two sentence decryption of it and every time he goes on stage you can hear it over and over again. it's exactly what people want to hear. it's a story people want to hear. >> it's how he says it and unpredictability. clearly he wasn't and that's the gift that he has. look, maria, just for open disclosure, i was on television the day he announced candidacy

7:08 am
people talk about the choice not voting and he has to figure out a way to bring these people into the -- >> maria: not voting means giving it to hillary clinton. >> i can see him saying, he's a totally different kind of candidate. he's going to pick a cabinet. this is how it's going to come together and that's going to give people trust and the issue -- >> i think that's huge. >> dagen: several weeks ago and he hasn't done it yet. he did name jeff, senator sessions. >> what he said last night, this is a movement. if you look at the numbers, he could say without blushing. >> maria: i don't disagree. what about sanders. hillary clinton was expected easy victory there and here comes bernie sanders and takes it away.

7:16 am
skipped. h time is attending south by southwest festival. what do you make of this? >> i think that overall president obama has a different view of the presidency regarding the protocol and the respect. everyone knew that ronald reagan refused to be in the oval office on without his jacket because he had so much respect. i feel that way in the courtroom. i tried a huge case a number ago and it was 150-degrees, i will allow you to remove your jacket, my answer is as soon as you remove your robes i will remove my jacket. he laughed because that's the way i was raised. everyone knew i was very close with the justice scalia and when president obama came out and gave a small press conference about justice scalia's death and not wearing a tie, so many of my friends -- he's the president.
7:17 am
he's in the white house. it's not like he's on vacation, he's not in hawaii, the tie is right there. it took me a minute. 40 seconds with the tie on today, it's just his mo, i'm going to be the first president not to attend a sitting justice's funeral in recorded history and now nancy reagan who was this iconic figure, it's even worse than scalia, with scalia he just stayed home. and here i'm going to a party instead of a funeral. >> maria: south by southwest. >> i just think it's disrespectful. >> dagen: this woman does not represent bipartisanship. where i grew up, going to a funeral is important in terms of paying your respects who had a impact on the nation. this is not distant history,
7:18 am
this is recent history. >> michelle obama came and said that she was mentor to her, important figure and role model to her, if that's true, how can you say it's more important to go to a conference down in texas where you are learning about social media than it is to say let's take a pause and pay respects. >> there's got to be some sort of compromise. there has to be some way to pay respects and obligated to do something else. he's the president. they will move his schedule. >> maria: he has nine months in office, maybe he doesn't clear. >> that's clearly -- i think that's clearly the case that he doesn't care. people were appalled that he did not go to justice scalia's funeral. >> maria: yeah. >> it's the protocol of it all. you're correct. he should appreciate this more than anybody.
7:19 am
>> exactly right. disagree with him or not, you have to respect him. >> i thanked him, thank you mayor de blasio. i don't believe in everything he did but i believe his public service deserved that. >> dagen: i think she's the daughter of queens. i'm pretty sure she was a daughter of queens. >> maria: nfl makes a tribute to the emergency personnel that saved his life. jared max with that. ted cruz makes observations about the possibility of a broken convention. coming back in a moment

7:32 am
the polls motivated to derail trump nomination. >> at first i didn't have an issue with trump, as i did you go in deeper and kind of got to know him, i thought this is not somebody i am ready to back. >> it was -- for me dividing between him and marco rubio, and in the end came down to who who i thought probably emotion ebb will tlefbla about he electable. >> big loser was marco rubio failed to hit the 20% threshold, so he got no votes no delegates last night, 32 are up for grabs, we do know that cruz will come away with lion's share probably around 20, and the remainder go to donald trump this was a close primary so republicans, only, on people registered as republicans could vote yesterday. and that again proved to be a good night for good strategy for cruz, he has won 6 states now that were republican primaries 6 of 7 victories in
7:33 am
closed republican primaries. maria: thanks so much the latest there, cruz facing fresh allegations of engaging in dirty trix this time in hawaii donald trump was able to secure a victory. the cruz campaign accused of disseminating a falls cnn report that claimed senator rubio was thinking of dropping out cruz explained away allegations to fox news megyn kelly last night. >> the nature of politics, is that when a campaign is flailing, they attack. and they -- they attack other candidates and they attack their integrity, this e-mail apparently came from volunteer in hawaii not necessarily with the campaign not working for campaign not under authorization fort sxain. >> bring in fox news contract contribute good to see. >> you how are you -- >> good reactions to last night? >> listen it was dominate night for donna don zam what he needed after a very mediocre, saturday when he
7:34 am
lost many a states to ted cruz under performed if louisiana kentucky winning much less though than expected, was he in double-digit leeds won by four, cruz though, merging from last night with a very important development which is the near fatal plo to marco rubio's campaign, if rubio ends up dropping out, prior to florida, as a result of the poor showings last night it becomes a very pivotal moment cruz merges as true unite trump candidate you have to see who backs him up if establishment goes behind the guy very reluctant to align themselves with thus far. >> doesn't it feel that is happening already, though, i mean, you know, even if marco rubio goes into florida, and perhaps losses florida? >> well, then i want to is over for marco rubio, i think there is a active conversation whether or not rubio stays into this race even prior to march 15, that being said, i think donald trump is making real gains with what we call the establishment, they see are mainly traditional
7:35 am
republican leaders, party hierarchy donors right. >> right. >> the kkk controversy happened and you saw them all stop and do about-face away from trump those beginning to warm up to him, now the only place they have to go is ted cruz as a mark of that maria gus show signed onboard ted cruz campaign. >> neil bush george w. bush and jeb bush's brother, so cereal, you are going to see a lot of people who want to stop trump, finding that cruz is real only alternative to do so -- >> can cruz win general election? >> well look if you believe in national polls i don't believe this early to be very candid with you he is well positioned certainly could, on flip of that is hillary clinton, you know you see what happened last might to her, in michigan, blue collar state, where she lost working class whites, she lost people who cared about the economy, cared about trade, and jobs. maria: yeah. >> she lost people cared about empathy honesty problem not in primary but well beyond when you look at general election
7:36 am
matchup against anyone on right with hillary you have to a see total of her character weak he isses possibly fluffing out youcom. >> if you put logs in front of the trump train to have you stop him from winning florida kasich didn't have past showing in michigan to have you stop him from winning ohio. what do you think of odds that rubio gets out of the way before florida? >> would that even matter? >> yeah, it does matter, dagen to some directing i think you are pickup trucking finger on the conversation everybody is having this morning, which is how much longer does marco rubio last, and, florida is now his last stand. if he even lasts that long. i think trump right now is in a dominate as i said earlier, position, because if you look at the maps going forward, even if kasich won ohio, let's pretend that happens where does he go after that where does he take that message? you haveer northeasterly states in april very trump pennsylvania new york new jersey donald trump has been able to do something, many other republican candidates
7:37 am
have not which is have wins all over country not just regionalizeed, so unless ted cruz galvanizes the establishment behind him he meaningful way very hard to foresee how you stop donald trump at this point. >> don't you see the, i mean we just sue interviews from voters coming out, saying, you know, i am not sure if it was rubio if it was cruz seemed maybe i should vote for cruz so it wasn't trump support for cruz seems to be soft, there is very -- very few people that i have spoken with like i am all in for cruz. and that makes it really hard to think that he is going to be the candidate because when you talk to trump supporters they are all in. and it is hard to break that kind of momentum, so what do you think? >> look when you with a look at intense enthusiasm you come up with a million theories or state obviously it is donald trump, really galvanizing people in some cases galvanizing voters to come out in republican primaries and vote against him we are now going into many closed contests, trump is not the
7:38 am
going to be able to appeal to the independent voter in to some of these upcoming primaries so cruz tends to have slight advantage there but look there is an argument to be made it is kind of too little too late to stop if this was o going to happen had to happen early cruz should have done better on super tuesday if you are taking delegate map away from donald trump, and at this point, barring a major sea change still can happen wife seen crazier things happen it is hard to imagine, how donald trump does get the real by the log on rail cruz smart savvy beginning to really i think make some smart hires moves adding, field offices if florida focusing refocusing a lot of attention down there. if he is able look, one or two upsets in big winner takall states could change this race but as of today looks like a very good path forward for donald trump. maria: it does feel like trump beat down the establishment, i mean they threw everything at him romney last week.
7:39 am
dagen: this is a -- tony can rack a stack in that "the wall street journal" first week of february 9% of all gop adsing targeted trump start of march half, bottom barred withed half advertisements against him gop ads have we seen dent in the campaign because of it. >> listen, i i mean most of us grew up in new york in 90s era of john goty remember headlines teflon don i think could be reaplied here. >> [laughter] >> it certain could be reaplied in political context and the reason is because people like his authenticity amazing how much donald trump is able to get away with that traditional structural candidate could not being inconsistency in record ode temperament heckling a press journalist at his own press conference, but people have at this point concluded that basically everybody is rotten in establishment system on both sides hillary clinton,

8:31 am
christians and voters angry with the government and made clear last night during his victory speech in florida, he doesn't think any of the vicious attacks by candidates or outside groups against him are working. on the democratic side, that's where the surprise was in michigan. bernie sanders, backed by 81% of young voters, 71% of independents, squeeked out a very unexpected win against hillary clinton for the big delegate prize of the week. and a big question in michigan today, what happened to john kasich? he fell to third place after several days of speculation, that he could be from nearby ohio where everybody is familiar with him, possibly pulloff an upset. didn't happen. maria: peter, thank you so much. news alert, iran test firing two ballistic missiles this morning in clear violation of u.n. sanctions. the missiles, according to iran state tv are capable of hitting israel. the reports are that the words
8:32 am
"israel must be wiped out" were on those. and george mitchell served as special envoy of middle east peace under barack obama. a first on fox interview. thank you for joining the conversation. what's your reaction to iran this morning? >> it's serious concern and i think it will be taken up at the united nations security council and will pursue continued sanctions on iran over the violation of the u.n. security resolution. maria: does the u.s. need to do more or communicate that it's doing more, given the fact it's not the first time that iran is violating the rules that we just agreed to with this most recent nuclear agreement? >> well, pursuing action at the united nations, increasing our own sanctions over missile actions, i think, is aggressive action. i think we should continue to do so. i do not believe this in any
8:33 am
way undermines or affects the u.s.-iran agreement with britain, france, germany, china over the iran nuclear program. the fact is, of course, that-- >> why not, senator? you can divorce those two issues? can you really separate, yes? >> of course, of course, if you take the position that you have to solve all the problems before you solve any problem, you'd never solve anything. the fact is since that agreement has reached iran has reduced its operating centrifuges by two-thirds, refused its enriched uranium by 98%, disabled a major reactor and is subject to the most intrusive inspection program any country has ever faced. iran will continue to take actions in the region, adverse to our interests. maria: yeah. >> it's been a factor there for 2,500 years and it's going to continue to be a factor and we have to oppose those actions,
8:34 am
but the reality is that their actions will be less effective without a nuclear weapon than they would have been had they been pursuing a nuclear weapon. maria: mayor guiliani. you're headed to israel and going to israel next week. >> on saturday, correct. maria: a palestinian man went on a stabbing rampage in tel aviv that left one person ted, ten wounded and the man killed was an american student and army veteran. vice-president biden was in the region as well. are we seeing a breakdown of middle east relations? >> you're seeing continuing breakdown of the middle eastern relations. i think it's gotten much, much worse since the arab spring, since president obama participated in the overthrow of mubarak, and participated in the overthrough of gadhafi, which was absurd. gadhafi was completely neutered, no reason to overthrow him and now we have a
8:35 am
terrorist haven there, and i think, even though i hate to disagree with senator mitchell, so much respect for him. iran cannot be trusted, they're spitting in our face and we have an agreement i have no doubt they'll cheat on. i think we're being naive in having an agreement with them. the sanctions should be increased, the agreement should be abrogated and we should say the heck with you and go back to the sanctions that we had before, and put their economy in havoc that it was in before and then maybe we could get a real agreement in which we stop them from not only having nuclear material, but firing missiles. missiles and nuclear material should not be in the hands of homicidal maniacs. and they are homicidal maniacs. they have killed millions of people. the ayatollah is a mass murderer. i wish we would wake up to that. maria: senator, what about that? >> well, of course, the mayor says we should go back to the sanks as they were before. there is no possibility of
8:36 am
that. the agreement was not just between the united states and iran, it was between the united states, china, britain, france, germany and russia. maria: but the u.s. led it. >> the u.s. led it, no doubt about it. but there's absolutely no doubt that universal sanctions are far more effective than unilateral sanctions and that's what brought iran to the table and after the agreement was reached, all five of the other countries, china, russia, britain, france and germany made clear they would not continue the sanctions if the united states rejected the agreement. so, it's a fantasy to say let's go back to the sanctions that exited before. universal sanctions are what brought them to the table and forced them to effectively dismantle their program and that's the reality. maria: which candidate for the 2016 election has the best foreign policy? >> well, i'm a democrat. [laughter] i'm a democrat and i support
8:37 am
secretary clinton so i think she has the best. maria: what about bernie sanders? >> i think that secretary clinton has the best policy. >> i think she was a disaster as secretary of state. maria: secretary of state? >> every single situation she took over in the world got worse by the time she left and i can't think of a single situation that she helped with. the first thing she did was reset the relationship with russia. maria: right the reset. >> which was absurd and gave up the nuclear defense in czech republic and poland which she never should have. here is what i don't understand about the obama administration, they give things up and get nothing in return. we give up the nuclear defense of the czech republic and poland. we reset the relationship with russia and now we've made putin the world power that he wasn't before. we give things away without getting back in return. we open up relationships with cuba. what did we get for it? we didn't even get shezmalt who
8:38 am
murdered a state trooper. we have political prisoners there, this is an administration that doesn't negotiate, selling your house and don't get paid for it. maria: this is what a big portion of what people believe. >> was the policy with cuba working for 50 years. maria: is it working for america? >> of course, it will work for america. it's the best thing to do because it makes sense after 50 years of a policy that failed, you're saying you want to continue that? so my view is, he asked what did secretary clinton do? she was the architect, the beginning of the program that led to the iranian nuclear agreement. you may not think that's a good deal, but the fact is that iran now is not in the position to have a nuclear weapon, will not be, and in my judgment will never have a nuclear weapon and if they do-- >> why not? how do you-- >> let me. >> the agreement to have a
8:39 am
nuclear weapon for 15 years and allows them to have nuclear weapons after 15 years and what you said before, senator, is the reason why it was a bad deal. now, all of these countries have taken their sanctions away and we can't put them back, which means we have to depend on iran keeping its word. which it will not. it's proven, it lies. they lie consistently. they're shooting missiles off as they're trying to implement this agreement, it's almost absurd to think that they're not going to cheat and meanwhile, murdering people in iran in large, large numbers. >> first off, the agreement provides that iran will not nuclear weapon, saying the agreement pro a nuclear-- >> and this is not a case of our trusting them. if they do cheat, the united states is in a very strong position to marshal an international force led by the united states, including
8:40 am
military action, if necessary, to prevent them from getting a weapon. that would not have been the case had the agreement been rejected and we could not have gone back to the international sanctions that existed before because china, russia, britain, france and germany made absolutely clear, they would not consent to continuing sanctions if the united states rejected the treaty. they have part of the treaty. it's a positive step for the united states, it's a positive step for israel, and reduces the likelihood of iran having a nuclear weapon and thereby reduces. maria: aren't they still producing uranium? in iran. >> yes. maria: why wouldn't that lead ultimately to another nuclear weapon? >> we reduced their enriched uranium total capacity, the amount that they hold by 98%. they're enriching it, but not to a level that is capable of producing nuclear weapons.
8:41 am
they are entitled to enrich uranium for peaceful and other purposes as a signatory to the nuclear nonproliferation regime. they are not enriching to the level needed to produce nuclear weapons. >> why would iran need the peaceful use of nuclear power? it's an energy rich country, that's always been an absurdity. it's absurd that secretary clinton and secretary kerry and barack obama even entertain the thought of that. they said that to me, i'd laugh at them and say, what are you kidding? the peaceful use of nuclear power for iran, an energy rich country? >> the united states-- this is a subterfuge to their becoming a nuclear power. if we don't recognize who and what the ayatollah is, president writing letters to him begging him for this agreement. this man is a mass murderer, it's like making an agreement with hitler. maria: is there a difference
8:42 am
between ayatollah and others try. >> first on nuclear power, the united states is the largest producer of oil and natural gas now, aggregate in the world, we have a nuclear power industry. so, his argument simply makes no sense, many, many countries look to diversify their energy, their energy sources, including nuclear power. secondly, this is not a case of trusting iran. they have the most intrusive inspection regime of any country in history and if they cheat, it will be discovered and we will take action to prevent them from getting weapons. maria: we'll see the u.n.'s reaction to the newest weapons. thank you, senator, along with mayor guiliani. we'll be right back. stay with us. every day you read headlines about businesses

>> welcome back, an interesting mix of titans and leaders had a meeting in georgia. >> this is the aei world forum in georgia, a confab of billionaires and capitol hill. bill crystal was there and it took on a theme of trump this
8:47 am
year, he said the specter of world forum and specter of donald trump, unhappiness about his emergence. a good deal of talks about why he's done so well and many expressions of hope that he would be defeated. we called a bunch of people who attended this meeting and we found out who was there. we heard from elon musk, senator paul ryan, and others, they were meeting there in an off the record secretive meeting talking about the issues of the day. on the agenda, the economy, jobs, wages, inequality, middle east, isis, the threat of russia and putin, and that's when we asked elon musk, what wa onop hismi. kep it fe, he wnly erto ge aalk on innion. he t foxusins h believes in spoin asonle cditeshowing wiom i theactis, no one is perct a eat f all. ts isui meeting to com
8:48 am
out of the world forum. there was discussion of donald trump. although it did not necessarily dominate the conversation. > why can't the people be trump-- why can't they say what they mean? take a shot. he's an outsider, not one of them, they're not sure of his policies, but i go with the ronald reagan theory, my 80% friend is not by 20% enemy. trump is where he is and they should be happy he's gotten so much attention for the republican party because all of them combined weren't able to get that attention. maria: do you think they're going to back off or a brokered convention. >> they're going to support him. maria: they're going to support them. >> you're going to see donald
8:49 am
come more to the middle, i don't mean on issues, but i mean in the way he conducts himself. he doesn't need to be as-- >> rough antrumble. dagen: as trumparian. [laughter] >> do you believe in him saying i can be a uniter? >> absolutely, no question about it. the man would not have had the success he had unless he was a uniter. take building a golf course, to build a golf course you have to unite people, he's built great buildings and great business. you don't do that by fighting with everybody all the time. he fights when he has to time and he negotiates when he has to negotiate. maria: which is why he's getting democratic votes as well. >> he wouldn't do something as stupid as giving up the defense of the czech republic and poland for nothing. when we made that agreement, putin looked at hillary and he looked at obama and he said, boy, they're-- they're suckers. i mean, i can take them for anything.
8:50 am
they're going to give up something that we fought for for 30 years, ronald reagan walked out over, and they gave it up, what did it get in return? i think putin probably had a whole bunch of things willing to offer, you don't want them, okay, thank you. now i know who to take advantage of and how to take advantage of them. maria: thank you very much. we'll be right back. you're an at&t small business expert? sure am. my staff could use your help staying in touch with customers. at&t can help you stay connected.

the reporter was able to get out of the way just on top and no one was injured in that crash and apparently he said it was the cameraman who said watch out, and he took a chance and got lucky, jumped the correct way and escaped injury. maria: unbelievable. thank you, futures pointing to gains about 30 minutes away from the opening bell. twitter is on fire with commentary about rudy guiliani. go rudy. we'll tell you about it next, tell you about it in a minute.

>> welcome back. final thoughts right now, mr. mayor? i'll start with you. >> well, i think it's all, but certain that donald is going to be the nominee. i think he's going to win florida. he wins ohio, it will be over really, really early. otherwise, i just don't see the math for anyone else and i don't see if he goes into the convention a few votes off the majority that you can keep it from him. there would be a revolution. he goes in with 1100 votes and 1231 to 1271 and give it to somebody else, rubio, there would be a revolution, and we'd lose the election. unless something goes wrong-- >> you're not expecting a brokered convention then? >> i think it would be a terrible mistake, you'd give the election to whoever the

democrat is. maria: it would look like that the republicans-- >> we would be disregarding the will of the people. why do we have these primaries, but to find out what republicans want. no one is the republican party. it's a conglomerate of people. so all of a sudden, they would be saying, oh, this guy got most of the votes, but he's not going to be candidate because he fell three short of the majority. maria: based on the following that trump has on twitter, they're going to be mad. jo: really mad. i think it would be the end of the republican party for a generation. it would be so fractured, it would be so-- it would be devastating. >> they would not get the white house back for a long time. >> it would be devastating and i think that people are going to have to get in line and trump putting together his cabinet before. dagen: hurry up and do that. one quick thing, his sweep of the south was astounding to your point. >> it's amazing, from new york and winning in the south. and i think that you'll see donald trump talking and

thinking more like a unifier and saying that to himself to remind himself, i've got to unify and bring things together. he had to shake everything up to get the attention and now i think you'll see him point toward a general election. maria: great insights, mayor guiliani. mcdowell and thank "varney & company," stuart, take it away. stuart: wednesday morning after the primaries, big surprise for the democrats and chaos among the republicans. good morning, everyone, bernie sanders won michigan. the polls got it wrong. his momentum looks like it's been restored. another surprise, bernie took 30% of the african-american vote and the turnout in this democrat promissory, was very strong. the republicans, donald trump won big in michigan, despite the attacks, he won by a double digit margin. the establishment guy, if i can call him that, marco rubio, he faded badly. and top democrat
