1:01 pm
expected to move when new orders come in and face the uncertainty that comes in the time of need. this kind of lifestyle that acquires its own kind of courage and your sacrifices do not go unnoticed or unappreciated. thank you. please know that our gratitude is boundless and goes out to each and every one of you with unconditional appreciation. this administration will always stand with the men and women of the united states air force. know now that it's my great pleasure to introduce my husband, the president of the united states, donald trump. [applause]
1:02 pm
>> thank you very much. at ease, at ease. please sit down. thank you, melania for that wonderful introduction and being such an incredible emissary for the american people. she's become very, very popular. tell you that. very proud of her. thank you. secretary wilson, chief wright, general jacobson, colonel tiekart, i'm honored to join you on this really, really historic occasion, the 70th anniversary of the united states air force. the greatest air force on the face of this earth by far. [cheers & applause]
1:03 pm
before we begin, our hearts and prayer goes out to the people of london that underwent a vicious terror attack today. i spoke with a wonderful woman this morning, british prime minister theresa may and showed our commitment to eradicating the terrorists from our planet, radical islamic terrorism. it will be eradicated. believe me. [applause] america and our allies will never be intimidated. we will defend our people, our nations and our civilization from all who dare to threaten our way of life. this includes the regime of
1:04 pm
north korea, which is once again shown its utter contempt for its neighbors and for the entire world community. after seeing your capabilities and commitment here today, i am more confident than ever that our options in addressing this threat are both effective and overwhelming. our thoughts also remain with those recovering in the wake of hurricanes irma and harvey. i visited florida yesterday where the american people have once again shown the world how resilient, strong and truly united we are. we're going to help our fellow americans put their lives, their homes and their communities back together because when americans are in need, americans pull together. we know we can always count on the courageous members of our nation's military to be there
1:05 pm
every step of the way just like more than 400 air force medical personnel who have deployed to florida to help care for the sick and the injured. to the men and women who proudly wear the air force uniform that keep our country safe and who fill our hearts with pride, thank you for your service and devotion to america. thank you. [applause] i am truly thrilled to join you today at this really incredible milestone. 70 years since the founding of the united states air force. congratulations. [cheers & applause]
1:06 pm
we're celebrating 70 years of history, 70 years of heros and 70 years of victory. i also want to thank all of the amazing family members and loved ones whose sacrifice make your services possible. we love you, we appreciate you and everything you do. thank you. [applause] for seven decades, the united states air force has pushed the boundaries of science and technology, helped restore peace and stability to troubled lands and kept americans safe from those that threaten our very way of life. nothing inspires more confidence in our friends or strikes more fear in the hearts of our enemies than the sight of american war planes on the horizon. you patrol the sky, protect the
1:07 pm
homeland and deliver american justice to anyone who dares to threaten our people. from the earliest wooden biplanes to the high tech uavs and awesome power and stunning beauty of the f-35, b-2, f-22 and i saw a lot of them today, the f-16, the f-18. i don't know which one i like the most. but our aviators have given america total dominance of the air and space no matter where we fly. now when our enemies hear the f-35 engines, when they're roaring overhead, their souls will tremble and they will know the day of reckoning has arrived. that is the way it's been since 1947 when the air force was born
1:08 pm
during a time of monumental change and uncertainty in the world. unconditional victory in world war ii had come at a terrible price. millions of lives have been lost, empires that collapsed and much of europe laid in ruin. the threat of global communism emerged from the void, left by defeated foes and the free nations of the world once again look to the united states to secure the peace. it was at this crucial moment that america established the air force as a separate military service and a truly great military service. from that moment, america has dominated both air and space like no other nation in history. our air superiority is unquestioned.
1:09 pm
not merely because we have the best equipment, but because we have the best people by far. [applause] in the berlin airlift through the gauntlet of negali, to the sky as above the jungles of southeast asia and the deserts of the middle east, american airmen have proven that they have no equal. in courage, capability or commitment. you are the ones that own the sky. you are our greatest weapon of all. in the last 64 years, american ground forces have not lost a single life to an enemy air strike. pretty amazing. that is truly a testament to the strategy and skill of american
1:10 pm
airmen and the essential role you play in our national defense. as commander-in-chief, i'm committed to keeping the united states military the best trained, best equipped and most technologically advanced fighting force on the planet. one of my first acts as president was to direct the rebuilding of our armed forces. and rebuilding we are. [applause] congress took an important step this year by heeding my call for a $20 billion increase in defense spending and we're going to be doing even much more than that. but the service men and women who defend our nation with their lives deserve the predictable and consistent funding that will help them win quickly and win decisively.
1:11 pm
[applause] i will tell you the new equipment that we're ordering by the billions, by the absolute billions and billions, it's equipment like you have never even thought of before. there's nobody in the world that will have anything even close to us and what we're doing. that's my great honor, believe me. i said it early on and i say it again. there's nobody even close. [cheers & applause] our armed forces have endured continuous combat for the past 26 years. yet despite this, the number of airmen on active duty has dropped by a third since the 1990s and we've cut more than half of our fighter squadrons.
1:12 pm
terrible. that is why i'm calling on congress to and the defense sequester once and for all and to give our military the tools, training, equipment and resources that our brave men and women in uniform so richly deserve. and that is happening. each of you is fulfilling your duty to america and now government must fulfill its duty to you and to you. right? [applause] we will stop delaying needed investments in our readiness and renew our commitments to the patriots that keep america safe. in doing so, we will continue
1:13 pm
the proud legacy of service that each of you has inherited. a legacy built over the generations by legends like yeager, wagner, boyd, grissom and shrever. they broke so many different barriers. they went further, fast and and always went on to victory. like them, each of you is a living, breathing symbol of our great country. the united states of america. the characteristics that define the air force aviator, power and great, bold neness and grace ar woven into the american fabric and in our people since our nation was founded. the legendary air force general
1:14 pm
robin molz said "fighter pilot is an attitude. it's cockiness, it's aggressiveness, it's self-cockiness and it is confidence. it is a streak of rebellionness." is that true? i don't know. [applause] i just met a lot of these folks. they're better looking than tom cruise and we know they can fight better and we know they can fly better. they better be able to. [applause] great people. they're truly, truly competitive. but there's something else. there's a spark. there's a desire to be good. to do well in the eyes of their peers. that desire to do good, to soar
1:15 pm
past every challenger, to overcome every obstacle and to win for your fellow citizens and the land that we love is the same desire that beats in the heart of every red-blooded american patriot. we are and forever will be a nation of pioneers and patriots, risk takers and renegades, aviators and astronauts. we crave adventure and achievement, exploration and enlightenment. we carved out a new home in the new world and gave birth to the modern world and will shape tomorrow's world with the strength and skill of american hands. because for america, the sky is never the limit. [applause]
1:16 pm
that is why the united states air force will remain the awe-inspiring flying force ever known to man. like every part of our military, the air force is born from the will of our people to search to explore, to reach new heights. it's the people's will that you reflect and their power that you project to every single corner of the globe. earlier this year, i had the honor of speaking with a great army air corps and air force legends, lieutenant colonel dick cole, the last surviving doolittle raider and a true american hero. like those that serve today, dick cole was a common american who answered to the call of duty with uncommon devotion. his place in the pages of
1:17 pm
history might have seemed unlikely prior to that fateful mission. he had never seen the ocean before, boarding a ship that would take him halfway around the world. neither he nor anyone else had ever flown a b-2 into combat from the deck of an aircraft carrier, nor had we ever seen anybody to use a parachute before bailing out thousands of feet above the chinese mainland. but he knew what his country needed and what his duty required. there was no barrier that could stop colonel coles from stopping their mission. it's defined the air force for
1:18 pm
the past 70 years and will lift each of you to new heights every day from this day forward. there is no distance too far, no speed too fast, no challenge too great and no height too high that will keep the united states air force or the american people from total victory. the american people are eternally grateful. we will stand with you always and never forget i am always on your wing. happy 70th birthday to the united states air force, happy birthday to everybody. we're so proud of you. congratulations to each and every one of you and thank you for keeping america proud, strong, safe and free. thank you, may god bless the
1:19 pm
armed forces and may god bless the united states of america. thank you very much, everybody. thank you. congratulations. [applause] thank you. >> neil: you been listening to president trump and the troops at joint base andrews and wishing the 70th anniversary to the u.s. air force. this coming from a day where we heard from general h.r. mcmaster and nikki haley outlining what will be a very get-tough approach next week when the u.n. general assembly is in town for their annual meeting. both of them indicating early on that this is a military option for north korea. one that is on the table. they wouldn't telegraph that. the president made some references to north korea earlier but not telegraphing what he would do. this comes at a time, a second time, in almost as many days that north korea has fired off
1:20 pm
another missile. that's got the japanese firing off the sirens. they said that they're going to militarizing to deal with and the south koreans are planning joint military exercises with the united states and other key players in the region. this is escalating. the president will be at his north vacation home as they call bedminster, new jersey. he will be leaving shortly. he's not indicating exactly what is in store for north korea. we might get a sense of that from fox news chief white house correspondent john roberts. he's obviously not going to tip his hand but he seems to be exaspera exasperated. the options are the table have been sanctions in the past. but we're told military options are on the table. >> there's no question that the president is frustrated by north korea. everything he does the regime rebuffs and pokes a finger in
1:21 pm
his eye with the missiles fired yesterday, what we believe was a hydrogen bomb test, which now appears to be much larger than originally thought and just is general bad behavior. i talked with the president about this yesterday on air force one. he said he's working with xi jinping on some things that he can't toll us about, some things going on right now. this idea of sable rattling telling kim jong-un that if you don't behave and certainly if you were to mount a nuclear warhead on a missile and fire it at the united states, the consequences will be awfully grim. the president there in that address to the air men and women at joint base andrews saying after seeing your capabilities here, i'm confident that a response to any threat can be effective and overwhelming. earlier this afternoon, nikki haley and h.r. mcmaster talking about the military option that it's not the preferred option and we have the capabilities if necessary. nikki haley saying we have the tough sanctions.
1:22 pm
it's going to take time for them to put the squeeze on the regime, cutting experts by 90% and fuel by 30%. but saying there's not much more than the united nations security council can do beyond that. she has no problem kicking it over to james matt tis. a lot of saber rattling. >> neil: in the meantime, not only north korea but terror alert and an attack in london and for which isis taking credit. we're going to talk to a former boston police commissioner, ned davis. first fox team coverage. we have connell mcshare in times square and kitty logan in london. any indications yet as to who was behind this, kitty?
1:23 pm
there are plenty of camera as available and that caught somebody. do we know? >> that's right. we have in the last hour seen that isis has claimed responsibility. it's interesting to note that the police here are treating that with some skepticism. people many had a lucky escape because that bomb did not explode fully. it detonated around 8:30 a.m. the height of the rush hour. at that time trains are typically very crowded. there was panic on the platform. in eye witnesses report that people were trampled. they described a flash and a smoke. many of the 29 injured do have burns. police said the bucket was in a bag used to transport it. >> there was an explosion on the train. police have attended -- we know
1:24 pm
assess this was a detonation of an improvised explosive device. >> now, police are calling this a terrorist incident and the government has held an emergency meeting in response. british prime minister theresa may now says the threat level in the u.k. will be raised from severe to critical. this is the fifth terror attack in the u.k. this year. authorities have said this could have caused significant harm had it functioned properly. all of this follows figured yesterday releasing the number of terrorists arrests in the country, in the u.k. the suspect that police are still trolling through cctv, cameras that are monitoring the stations and along the route. five stations between the start of the journey when the bomb went off so police could be close to catching the suspect, neil. >> neil: thanks, kitty. i appreciate it. in new york where officials are beefing up security as is typically the case after the
1:25 pm
word of an attack. connell mcshane is in times square. what are they doing? >> neil, it's almost routine. we see an attack like kitty describes overseas and the security gets stepped up here back at home. it was in the middle of the morning rush in london. as we went through the morning rush in new york, we started to see the usual measures. more counter terrorism officers and more k-9s and more heavy weapons teams. they came to places like times square that could be a terrorist target and places where tourists gather. speaking of tourists, many are from europe. they know about what we're dealing with. i spoke a few minutes ago with this woman that you'll hear from ireland. she has two sons working in london. first thing she did, checked on hem. they were okay. then she started to worry about herself before realizing basically this is the world we
1:26 pm
live in. listen. >> it won't matter where you are. these guys don't care who they hit. >> we noticed the heightened security. it's okay. don't -- feels more secure but only takes one crazy person with a backpack. even if there are 100 people, we don't need to get scared and stay home for that. >> so i they don't stay home that man from belgium. it sums up the reaction you get from people. they see the measures like the counter terrorism offices behind me. they were put in place after the may attack. the car attack. remember here in times square. so the tourists and everybody sees it, but they say almost they won't change their behavior because of it. the terrorists would win if they did that. >> neil: thanks, connell. sources are saying the bomb used in this london subway attack is very similar to the one used in
1:27 pm
the boston bombing some years back. commissioner ed davis is here with us from boston. it's interesting that they're looking at what seemed to be a relatively crude device that could have been very, very effective. not that injuring 22 people is not. but could have been a lot worse. what do you see paralleling what you experienced in boston? >> thank you, neil. it's troubling to see this happen again. when you look at the device, it's about the same size and shape of what we saw in boston. i don't know what the contents were. there's different types of explosives, differents of detonators. there's talk of a timer on this. it was clearly designed to go off to create the most havoc. they tried to target one of these stations where several lines connect together. it would appear as though there was a flash-over of the
1:28 pm
explosive. so it didn't detonate. if it's not under a compression of some sort, it will flash over and create the kinds of burns that we've seen in the victims that were hurt today. so someone has done this and they've done it wrong. it didn't work, thank goodness. but it does show there's a continuing effort to sow terror and injury and death throughout london. the authorities are working really hard right now not only to capture the suspect but also to identify other cells that might be out there that may try to do this again. >> commissioner, seems like apples and oranges, but i notice the markets in our country were up today. the dow was at another record. the s&p was at a record. that 7 in the face of what was a very scary and could have been even scariest attack in landon. the five this year. it's as if we have sort of like
1:29 pm
a blase attitude. that kind of attitude worries you. what do you think now? >> well, i agree. we need to be vigilant. we cannot let this simply become the way of the world. we need do what the president said. those are the kind of -- those are the kind of words that push everybody in the right direction. so it's really important -- >> neil: i wonder if you get used to it? almost too much so and we wouldn't respond to something horrible hits us in the face. meantime, we're told to be vigilant to your keen point. often what they say, commissioner, if you see something, say something. as you and i discuss, almost everything you see around times
1:30 pm
square in boston would warrant saying something. so what is it that we have to look for? >> we need to do what they say. new york does more than simply respond after an incident as happened. the hercules teams are being deployed every day. i spoke to commissioner o'neal recently. he's very concerned about terrorism. he has a tremendous response and preventative mentality. that's the mentality that we have to have across the country. people think it happens someplace else. there seems to be this low-level acceptance of these incidents occurring. we have to guard against that. >> neil: all right. ed davis, former boston police commissioner, fox news contributor. played a vital role in stopping what could have been a horrific terror attack in boston. meantime, so much money being spent on the relief for hurricane harvey and irma and all of a sudden housing and urban development under the gun here with its own budget under
1:31 pm
pressure. why ben carson says we're just fine, thank you. his thoughts on that and dealing in a trump administration with a president every now and then that can have a temper. after this. "grandma! grandpa!" ♪ thanks mom. here we are. look, right up to here. principal. we can help you plan for that.
1:32 pm
when you're close to the people you love, does psoriasis ever get in the way of a touching moment? if you have moderate to severe psoriasis, you can embrace the chance of completely clear skin with taltz. taltz is proven to give you a chance at completely clear skin.
1:33 pm
with taltz, up to 90% of patients had a significant improvement of their psoriasis plaques. in fact, 4 out of 10 even achieved completely clear skin. do not use if you are allergic to taltz. before starting you should be checked for tuberculosis. taltz may increase your risk of infections and lower your ability to fight them. tell your doctor if you are being treated for an infection or have symptoms. or if you have received a vaccine or plan to. inflammatory bowel disease can happen with taltz. including worsening of symptoms. serious allergic reactions can occur. now's your chance at completely clear skin. just ask your doctor about taltz. >> neil: the administration has made it clear when it comes to texas and florida and all of those states buffeted by back-to-back storms, you'll get whatever you need. ben carson here to say not necessarily whatever you want.
1:34 pm
how much money do you think you'll need in retirement? then we found out how many years that money would last them. how long do you think we'll keep -- oooooohhh! you stopped! you're gonna leave me back here at year 9? how did this happen? it turned out, a lot of people fell short, of even the average length of retirement. we have to think about not when we expect to live to, but when we could live to. let's plan for income that lasts all our years in retirement. prudential. bring your challenges.
1:35 pm
>> neil: close to $300 billion. that's the early tab and that is a guesstimated tab for harvey and irma relief. housing of urban development is in the middle of that. also in the middle of budget cuts. so it's a good opportunity for me to catch up with ben carson who runs the place to see if it's up to the task. and those communities are up to getting the money. >> there's a general consensus across our government that our people are hurting, particularly in texas and in florida as well as in the virgin islands and puerto rico. this is probably not the time for us to count the pennies, although we have to be efficient and fiscally responsible. so we will do what is necessary obviously to get our people back into good shape. >> neil: secretary, how do you police the moneys that are needed? obviously the first wave of
1:36 pm
money for largely i think harvey victims, some irma came before the storm a little more than $15 billion was a down payment on other monies that could be needed, a cumulatively in excess of $250 billion. i'm not how much would be coming from your department but comes at a time when they're fighting back and forth about where to get the money. is it your thinking, no matter the cost, just give florida, give texas by extension, louisiana, whatever they need to deal with this? >> i would say we're going to be obviously very diligent in examining exactly what is needed. we will provide what is needed. not necessarily what is wanted. there is a difference. we have already started to process long before the hurricanes came along of getting rid of some of the unnecessary
1:37 pm
paperwork, some of the regulatory things that were slowing things down, making things inefficient that cost taxpayers extra money. so that process was already begun. it's going to ben fit us significantly. >> neil: what are your thoughts on the president making overtures to democrats, namely chuck schumer and nancy pelosi raising the debt ceiling and attacking to it the hurricane fund something he expressed at the time that we got poorly treated by the gop and he echoed that yesterday. do you agree with that? that the republicans have treated him poorly? >> there's generalized poor treatment. it's good to talk across the aisle. there's no way that continued division will help news the long run.
1:38 pm
there may be a temporary victory here and say ha-ha, we got you this time but it's not helpful as a country. we're called the united states of america. even though we may differ on some points, on the vast majority of principles and values, we're pretty much in the same boat. we really need to start having a much more open discussion about what we're trying to achieve as opposed to what is the ideology of this side or that side. >> neil: do you worry about what steve bannon told "60 minutes" of a potential civil war in the republican party. i only said that when the republicans reactions to president on daca, aid, the debt ceiling. you have steve king furious, mow brooks of alabama saying i'm frustrated with all of washington and i make no exception. breitbart himself or the news service going so far as to say this is an amnesty deal, that
1:39 pm
the president is letting down his base. what do you say to that? >> i would say people have to get over their own feelings. that's the reason that we're having trouble getting things done. because people say, well, i don't like it. i doesn't fit with -- it's not you. it's the constituency that you represent. we need to get back to understanding what a representative is. what is a senator? what is a congressman? you know, what are those of us that work in government? we're employees of the people. we should be carrying out the things that work for them. not what makes us feel good. >> neil: did you get in trouble by the president's remarks in which he seemed to once again equate the violence that happened in charlottesville equally to the left and the right with the neo-nazis and the clan and the leftists group? he was referring at the time as you know to his conversations with south carolina senator tim
1:40 pm
scott who was a little chagrinned he told me speaking as an african american that he found those remarks inappropriate. this is prior to the president's comments yesterday on air force one. do you? >> i think the president is very willing to call out those individuals what sort of instigated the whole thing in the first place as well as those that reacted to that incitigation. >> neil: you think he called them out enough? that was the rap against him, that he didn't. >> i personally -- when he said all of these groups, i thought he meant all of those groups. for some people, all of those groups only means all the groups on the other side. but you know, again, we need to get away from parsing everything to make it fit our sense of what is value and ask ourselves, what is helpful to us as a nation?
1:41 pm
you know, this whole charlottesville situation deserves a serious discussion. not just barbs from this side or barbs from that side. let's ask ourselves, do we want to get rid of the history of our nation? do we want to put foot notes on it? do we want to have an opportunity to explain what went right and what went wrong to our children so that they don't make the same mistakes again? do we just want to hide it and say we're wonderful people? you know, we need to have that discussion. other nations that have obliterated their history have never seemed to benefit from that. so at the same token, we need to have a discussion about slavery, slave owners versus people that were anarchists and trying to overthrow our government and how we should look at one versus the other. if we don't have those discussions -- >> neil: i'm sorry. do you think statues to the confederacy, there's a movement
1:42 pm
to take them down, they are a blight on our past, you're a prominent administration figure a prominent african american. how do you feel about that? >> again, i feel that those are things that need to be discussed. that's why we have local governments. >> neil: do those statues bug you? >> me personally? no, they don't bug me personally. i'm a big picture type of person. you know, i don't tend to get bogged down with things that perhaps tend to drive other people nuts. because there's so many bigger issues. as i was saying when this whole charlottesville thing started, you've got kim jong-un over there with nuclear weapons who also needs money, who probably wants to sell those things to people that are not going to be deterred by the mutual destruction argument, that would be happy to try to destroy us even if we destroyed them. we need to be thinking about
1:43 pm
that. we need to think about our electric grid. the fact that you can explode a nuclear weapon in the atmosphere and industry our grid and put us in a helpless situation. doesn't mean those other things are important. let's focus. >> neil: because you've had a very calm approach to this and have been not very volatile about it, the michigan chronicle went so far to call you a house negro. herman cain defended you and said house negroes better stand. how did you feel about that? >> i understand people allow themselves to be manipulated and feel you must all march top of 1 drum and if you deviate from that, there's a horrible name that they can call you. i don't care about that. my center comes from my relationship with god. that's what's important to me. the values and principles that
1:44 pm
are consistent with what he says. so you know, when other people come along and call you names and want to create strife, you know, if that's their fun, let them have it. we have much more important things to do. >> neil: that's your point of view. i understand that. you don't like the name-calling back and forth. yet you're always in this sort of tough position working for the president of the united states who we're told not too long agoed that referred to his attorney general over the anger of recusing himself from the whole russian investigation an idiot and brow beat him in public. what did you think of that? >> it's probably not the way i would handle things. but again, you know -- >> neil: if you were treated like that, dr. carson, would you stay on? >> if i had something important that needed to be done, i would not let personal insults deter
1:45 pm
me from doing that. >> neil: so if the president called you an idiot our brow beat you in front of others -- there's been some surprise that jeff sessions has stayed. if the same thing were done to you, you would stay depending on the importance of your mission? >> yeah, the importance of the mission far exceeds any personal insults. people sometimes put themselves into too high of a position. they worship their position and what they think of them. that's not important. what is important is do you have the ability to effect positive change. >> neil: your thoughts on this tax package. the argument is that the rich should probably be left out of it. the president seems to intimated that we can get significant bang
1:46 pm
for the buck without giving bucks back to the well-to-do. do you agree with that? there's a vision line along the conservative members of your part. they do not. they think the tax cut should be across the board. how does ben carson feel? >> i'm a pragmatist. who pays most of the taxes? whoever is paying most of the taxes, that's probably who needs the tax break. i think -- >> neil: they're not going to get it. >> i think everybody needs a tax break if the purpose is to stimulate the economy. if it's to encourage further investment. if the purpose is political, then you can start parsing it out. you know, as you remember when i was running, i said why not do it the way god does? he said i want a tithe. he wants the same proportion from every person. you make $1, he wants 10 cents.
1:47 pm
you make did -- $10 billion, he wants a billion. sames fair to me. >> neil: but notice in this tax package. >> i hope we come back and ask us what are we trying to do? are we trying to stipulate the economy or are we trying to win brownie points? if we're trying to stimulate the economy, then obviously we need to have tax cuts in an area where it really will do something. look at the corporate tax rate. bring that down. create an environment that creates a net influx of jobs into our country rather than an outflow. those are the kinds of things that make sense and should make sense to everybody. >> neil: all right. i think that was ben carson's way of saying when it comes to tax cuts across the board for everyone, the indications right now is that the trump administration is leaving out the well-to-do. that's anybody's guess where this is going. i want the read on this from
1:48 pm
dagen mcdowell and heather. election dda dagen, what is your think something. >> if you look at the markets ignoring all the things this week, whether it's north korea, firing another missile over japan, investors are most focused on the corporate tax cut and the movement on this hand giving finally after decades and decades a break to smaller businesses and includes them in a tax reform package. one of the things driving the markets, the dow is having its best of the year. all-time highs for the s&p and dow. there's more talk about tax reform out of washington and greater hope that something does happen by the end of the year. >> heather, ben carson is not a politician. he answers everything honestly and directly.
1:49 pm
one of the things he said about tax cuts that caught my attention there and to dagen's point, about cuts and brownie ports, you can get a coalition behind the cuts hence the talking to democrats. if you leave out a certain group in this case the wealthy, it could come back to boomerang. but he didn't say it in so many words. is it your sense that overtures to democrats to get their support for these taxes, whatever they are, will be enough, that that it will be better than nothing? >> yeah, will be enough will be better than nothing but that doesn't mean that we would get tax cuts across the board. president trump ---ed. >> could you live with that? >> absolutely. yes. absolutely. and like dagen said, the markets want corporate tax reforms. not just the markets by small businesses want the corporate tax rate to come down to 15, if
1:50 pm
not 20%. if we don't get tax cuts for the so-caldwell think, that is still okay as long as there's some sort of reform and there's a negotiation and compromise. you make a deal. that's what he's brought here to do, the art of the deal. that's his book. he's going to make something happen. might not be all or nothing though. >> neil: that what appears the markets are telegraphing. that deal or no deal at all. the united nations are holding another emergency meeting over north korea. north korea doesn't seem to care because they keep firing off those missiles. what now? whoo! testis this thing on?! huh? c'mon! your turn! mmmm... where do pencils go on vacation?

1:54 pm
north korea fired off another missile over japan. nikki haley and h.r. mcmasters promised action and response and telegraphing that there's a military option for north korea without saying what that might be obviously. claudia is here with the independent women's forum. claudia, we're not going to tip our hand what that would be and the president isn't either. but we're running out of patience. i know that is the case with everyone of these launches. but north korea is not running out of chutzpah here. what do you make of it? >> what i make of it, we may be heading for a war although nobody wants to think that. it's not because of president trump. it's because of presidents since bill clinton, george bush and especially barack obama have kicked this down that fabled road. until we've arrived at a point until they're lobbies intercontinental ballistic missiles over our treaty now. they appeared to successfully
1:55 pm
tested a hydrogen bomb and threatening guam, japan, us. and defaulting to jim mattis saying we may go to the military option, the problem by now is i don't think north korea believes us. we have not done that to date. we have a lot of credibility problem there. >> neil: we've talked about tougher sanctions and the most recent wave that haven't taken effect yet. these latest waves of sanctions, that much tougher that it would change the behavior that much more. >> no, it's like making a stronger sive, neil. they're tougher on paper. are they going to stop the ballistic missile program or the nuclear program? no. they have all been unanimously approved. this is the ninth round. >> neil: what if we shut down one of their next tests? would that be deemed an act of war in their eyes? >> very possibly. on the other hand, it's high
1:56 pm
risk. they might well attack south korea, go to war and at the same time i think it would impress them in ways that sanctions evidently don't. china and russia cheat after they approve every sanctions resolution. that's why we may be heading to war. it's quite possible at this point, there's nothing left. i hope we try everything we can before we get to war. the problem is that it's all been done. we're now in the realm of hydrogen bombs for our time. not peace for our time. it's very dangerous, neil. all courses are risky. >> neil: yeah. i hear you. scary stuff. thanks, claudia. and the markets were up today. not on any fears that this will happen but maybe they'll make money the same. it's a weird world, my friends. more after this.
