well. >> tucker: very smart, tammy bruce good to see you tonight, get tammy bruce fox nation. >> thank you tucker, thank you, dear. >> tucker: out of time after a full hour. we will be back tomorrow night 8:00 p.m. and >> the show that is the sworn enemy of lying, pomposity, smugness and group think. touche sean hannity we go. >> sean: welcome to "hannity" and we began with a fox news alert, the united states, donald trump will join us for an exclusive interview. that is in a moment and we will discuss the brand-new rnc news in terms of the convention in florida has been canceled and the president's reasons why. what is the backup plan? we will ask him that. and we will talk about the violence, literally what he calls the war zone in american cities. we will talk about the upcoming election, covid-19, left-wing conspiracy theories, joe biden come a lot to get to tonight. first major breaking news surrounding what we have identified on the show correctly
to the biggest abuse of power corruption scandal in american history and that is obama. biden, james comey working together to destroy president trump my first candidate trump and transition team trump. now we have more definitive proof tonight because a bombshell document has now tonight been declassified by the dni director radcliffe. it shows the most extreme measures that jim comey, mr. hyer on her himself, the fbi took in 2016 to spy on then candidate donald trump. the newly unearthed materials include typewritten notes from an fbi agent named joe panetta detailing august 2016 briefing with donald trump, lieutenant general flynn and former governor chris christie of new jersey. the meeting was supposed to be a routine defensive briefing that presidential candidates received from the fbi, but in truth, reality, it was all a ruse. according to a source, the
briefing was "a cover to listen for any remarks of president trump or anyone else about russia." so let's be clear, we now have indisputable evidence that the fbi literally early on planted a crossfire hurricane agent to spy on team trump. it also means jim comey, mr. higher honor is caught in another massive lie. jim i reminded you a long time ago, well, you have them rewrite to remain silent and you should have used it. by the way he testified that trump was not under investigation, proving another lie. take a look. >> al the right, apparently we d not have that. we will have it hopefully soon. he lied when he said the dirty dossier. remember he went to trump tower, took notes as soon as he left, and said the dossier and
president-elect trump said salacious but unverified, but we know that he used that dossier as the bulk of information to secure the fisa warrant to spy on candidate trump just a month earlier. the official notes from the security briefing were filed under crossfire hurricane, which of course, the official code name for comey's collision witch hunt. it was a witch hunt and by the way that bought and paid for dirty russian dossier of russian disinformation, hillary paid for that. guess who helped hillary? it looks like vladimir putin's russia. and also filed under cross fire razor. remember, that was the code name the fbi's probe into and we now know the innocent lieutenant general michael flynn. it is now time for investigative prosecutor durham to now wrap this up, bring this to a grand jury, and we need indictments of every single solitary person involved in this corruption, this abuse of power, they are
premade dictated lies to the fisa court. the denial of civil liberties and constitutional rights, and then tried to influence the outcome of an election, and then undo a duly elected president. mr. durham, no more time for investigating. it is time for action. the evidence is overwhelming. it is incontrovertible. that and the public domain that we know should result in indictments up all of these people we talk about. get this. the agent that did conduct this "briefing joe pinnock was apparently running the flynn probe. and his briefing notes approved by none other than the infamous peter strzok and the fbi lawyer. we talked a lot about him too. kevin kleinsmith, the bureaucrat that literally detected -- text colleagues that trump was crazy and vice president hance was stupid and after trump won he text. it was kleinsmith forging the
evidence against carter page all to spy on back door spy on candidate trump transition team trump and deep into the presidency of donald trump. and of course, kleinsmith struck, and just a tip of the spirit -- sphere. an effort at the very top, the insurance policy in the unlikely event that he wins. that was page and peter strzok texting each other. that was obama's infamous, remember this date january 5th, 2017 the oval office meeting. the meeting that obama directed, we need the right people on this doing the work. maybe we shouldn't tell all of this to the incoming administration. this is the january 5th meeting in the oval office where joe biden lied to george stephanopoulos. i didn't know anything about this but we know from peter strzok's and written notes that biden suggested the fbi
used the 1799 logan act, which has never been used ever to prosecute anyone. now, remember this was the meeting sally gates was at, and she was shocked according to her testimony before the house intelligence committee that president obama knew all of the infamous details about the unmasking and leaking of raw intelligence as it relates to general flynn. and of course, soon to be russian counterpart and that is why susan rice went back on the day that donald trump was inaugurated 15 days after the oval office meeting to write what is now known as the biggest cya email to self on obama's last day, trumping sworn end date, claiming that barack said do everything by the book. why would she write that four times, 15 days later? this was clearly an effort to monitor and take down the new president, to undo an election. and take down everyone around him. but as we all know, although the
mob and the media, they've gotten all of this wrong. they pushed lies, smears, conspiracy theories, the entire hoax. they were dragging and pushing impeachment and during quid pro quo joe n0 experience hunter. there was no russia collusion. it was always a hoax. the dossier that was used for all of these pfizer applications has been debunked. it was never verifiable. we know the sub source said it was just bartok and we know that still had an agenda and everybody warned that hillary played for the russian disparate information. the real scandal and the real abuse of power is that president obama, what did you know, barack and what did you know? joe, the ever confused one, what did you know, joe, and when did you know it? they turn tremendous tools of your government against their political adversary. it is a national disgrace and all must be held accountable, prosecutor durham we are waiting. what we know already should be
indictments for many. it is time! if we don't get this right, we will not have a constitutional republic. we won't have equal justice and equal application of the laws. here with mark ohio congressman jim jordan, fox news contributor's error dimmick sarah kurt -- sara carter. we start with you, there is enough that we know, all of us, not many of us between congress and our ensemble past digging deep into this. i count maybe 25 people total taking on the entire media mob. they were all wrong. my question to you is, what does this say to you and what does it say to durham? because the fbi went to than candidate trump calling russia might try to target you and your campaign. what they didn't tell him is we are targeting you. they told him russian might try to spy on you. what they didn't tell him, we are spying on you, and they did it just 17 days into the investigation. it opens july 31st. august 17th they do this.
13 minutes for the defensive briefing as part of the briefing you are supposed to get in an hour and 42 minutes where they are trying to get information and set the president up. all of this comes after, as you said, sean, the text message where peter strzok said we will stop trump. august 15th text message where he says we have an insurance policy. they start implementing that insurance policy two days later. >> sean: sara carter with john solomon march 2,017th a whole unmasking thing began. i had a conversation with both you soon thereafter gregg jarrett joined dan and we have to keep peeling layers of the young and appear to think it is now and infamous discussion. >> absolutely, sean look at these documents, they are explosive because if you think about august 2016 here is joe pinsker write debriefing basically trump and governor christie and michael flynn. then in january, he goes back to the white house with peter strzok. he goes back to the white house and remember he is the one
interviewing michael flynn and collecting the information, all the while, just as congressman jordan's says they are spying on the president of the united states. you know, this is something so explosive and so big. if john durham doesn't do his job, it doesn't mean that these three are involved, sean. what you have to think about is the scope of this come up both peter strzok and kevin kleinsmith and all the others directed by people above them. that is andrew mccabe, that is james comey, and that is those folks at the white house, including the president barack obama who knew everything that was going on in january 5th. >> sean: they need to be asked. barack needs to answer, what did he know when when did he know it? same with joe. my question to you greg jerry. two best-selling books come amazing work that you did. on the legal side of this, what we now have in the public domain is enough to get indictments for all of these people as far as i'm concerned. you tell me as a lawyer if i'm
wrong and why is it taking so long? at this point, i think the prosecutor durham has an obligation to get this over with and let the american people know, we need to know before november 3rd of this year. >> well, i think durham has been slow footed, you agree. and he may have been slow down a bit but if there was doubt how devious and corrupt james comey and his cabal were, they they should remove doubt. this was not about debriefing trump but gathering incriminating evidence of a nonexisting collusion conspiracy that the fbi well knew was a hoax. they knew it was a lie, paid for by the hillary clinton campaign. they didn't care. at the heart of it, you are right, joe i read about in my book. but interestingly the government has scrubbed him from all reports including the fbi, the department of justice report,
even the fisa court report and the fbi has removed him from the website and sequestered him in san francisco's field office refusing to make him available notwithstanding repeated demands to congress. that is the cover-up by the existing fbi director christopher wray. and the other part of this equation is that the documents today, they are exculpatory. they tend to prove trump innocence. and yet i'm of the fbi and christopher wray have concealed these documents along with the intel community for the better part of four years. it is unconscionable. and it is a cover-up. >> sean: we had a little problem earlier. this is call me denying that which we now know is true. this guy said the holier-than-thou mr. higher honor is so full of [bleep] [bleep] [bleep] come i can't even say it. i wish i could but i would have
to deal with the fallout after. here is what he said. >> was the fbi able to confirm any criminal allegations contained in this deal document? >> mr. chairman that is not a question i can answer in an open setting because it goes into the details of the investigation. >> i want first to ask you about your conversations with the president mother three conversations in which you told him that he was not under investigation. the first was during your january 6th meeting according to your testimony in which it appears that you actually volunteered that insurance. is that correct? >> that is correct. >> did you limit that statement to counterintelligence investigations, where were you talking about any time the fbi investigation? >> i didn't use the term counterintelligence. i was speaking to him and briefing him about some
salacious and unverified material. >> sean: that proves, jim jordan, he lied. when he signed the first buys a warrant in october 2016, and thn went to trump tower and i believe december 2017 and said salacious and unverified command the pfizer application, both information of the dirty dossier, he said it was verified. he is a liar x choir to. he said he wasn't trump was not under investigation but just 17 days into the investigation, they were investigating the president for no reason, no predicate whatsoever. he also told us during the deposition after ten months when he gets fired may 9, 2017, they didn't have a thing. we knew they didn't have anything. he knew they didn't have anything. clapper, comey said there was nothing there and they put the comp three though my country through this. look at the names on the front page, kleinsmith, the guy who lied to the fisa court and
handle this investigation this interview as well and this brief and whatever you call it and then of course peter strzok who ran the whole darn thing. those are the three names on the front page as well as crossfire hurricane and imagine this come across fire razor. they were after mike flynn from the get-go as well. that is what the front page of this document declassified today. that is what it shows. >> sean: all right, thank you all. we will be watching. mr. durham, we are watching. it's time. you've had enough time now. president trump is coming up in mere moments literally the next 10 minutes i'm told. it was just announced, he announced a bold, new expansion what is known as "operation legend." why? to help combat the war zones, the crime, the anarchy that is literally wreaking havoc and killing innocent americans and people are not safe and secure in their own towns or cities. over there fake news msnbc, the conspiracy channel, joy reid,
congratulations on your new time slot. saying rising crime numbers are a fair rate higher -- fairy tale is not exactly accurate. maxine waters to discuss conspiracy theories that trump is invading cities with a parliamentary and secret police as the trial run for the coming election coup. watch for yourself. >> as a matter of fact, it has been suggested that this is a trial run of the president of the united states, who may be organizing to not accept what happened when we have the election if he's not elected. >> and he said it out loud pointing the cities that will be in a sense invaded by trump's secret police led by democratic mayors. it's not just maxing and the joy reid show spamming these insane ideas. by the way this is the next hoax
and have to choke on the hoax over there they come project donald j. trump is elected the 45th president of the united states. you, the american people will decide that in 103 days. i hope you choose wisely. there is a lot at stake. take a look. >> people are looking at potentially a trial run for a kind of genuine attempt to true intimidation and potentially true force to try to, to try to steal this election. the problem here is come apparently the president has this imaginary world in his head where he thinks the u.s. cities are under siege. the idea that federal agents are in a city with americans, that is not really the point here. this is like secret police snatching up americans, sticking them into cars. >> sean: you know, take a look at this psychotic story from the insane washington compost. it says trump's assault on election integrity forces question. what will happen if we refuse to
accept the election laws? what will joe do? how about that? the willing is willing to do, to say anything to beat president trump here they are in a full panic come i can tell you that tonight. buckle up, it will be an insane 103 days. nancy pelosi referring to federal agents in portland calling them stormtroopers, jim clyburn also in leadership in the democratic health comparing federal agents to gestapo. of the democratic representatives claiming trump is trying to start a race war. no, he's trying to save lives and in seattle the ever incompetent far left mayor jenny durkin, remember the summer of love's own? it is an autonomous zone commit chaz, chop zone spaghetti pot lk dinner zone telling fake news cnn that she was very unsettled. people died because of the stupidity of her not maintaining law and order. take a look. >> i have to tell you suddenly
the president continues down this path. i think it is unfortunate again the president is using federal law enforcement as a political tool. that is so dangerous for america. >> sean: what is dangerous is is that you allowed a mob, an anarchist to take over city blocks, including a police precinct four weeks! you called at the summer of love spaghetti pot luck dinner zone. well, i had to call come apparently, you didn't take the time to call horace lorenzo anderson sr. who lost his 19-year-old son, killed in your summer of love zone. you wouldn't allowed the police to restore order until, well, let's see, that's right, what to young african-americans were murdered in that zone. many others injured. according to a report, president trump plans to send a tactical seem to seattle as standby if the violent riots continue because she is allowing it. we got the same problem in
portland. we have the dopey mayor there, ted wheeler. loud riots fester for 55 straight days. apparently, wheeler thinks this is mostly peaceful protesting. i saw a lot of rocks, bottles, graffiti, literally businesses shut down, total mess. take a look. >> the federal government, we will not allow them to take the city. felipe [screaming] enough is enough! >> >> [chanting] [bleep] [bleep] [bleep].
>> let's go home! >> teargas. >> sean: ted wheeler, does your to do look safe and secure to you, or he might just not believing what i'm saying? in fact, this once federal agent in portland actually to go home, stop protecting the federal building is that under law supposed to protect that were lit on fire last night. ted wheeler is totally detached like so many other liberals. all these liberal mayors one thing and call comment they let their cities no safety, no security and rotten educational systems for decades. he seems to think there is absolutely nothing wrong with the anarchy playing out in his city! last night, actually they are to support the anarchist. ironically he ended up being harassed and stalked and assaulted. democrats are now living in an upside down world. they vilify the police while the appeasing of violent write year tours. and they let them out of jail,
no bail in new york for those stupid policies. they trashed the president for trying to protect innocent life and send in help to stop the violence and restore law and order. time and time again, they put politics and hatred of donald trump over the lives and safety of their own citizens. by the way, come november, you will let them take the reins of the entire country because only you have the power to stop it at the ballot box because joe biden is a guy that said "the police have now become the enemy, and of course i support reallocating funds" now he is denying it. he said it but we have the t. fox news contributor dan bongi dan bongino, geraldo rivera oh, civil rights attorney, geraldo we begin with you. you know what, geraldo you know what i love about you, you love your fellow human beings. you have been a street reporter as we say. all these years, trying to help people with better, safer lives.
these cities aren't safe. against all logic and reason, they won't allow any help to prevent violence and death, why? >> why? because they are politicians and bad politicians. ted wheeler of the mayor there in portland food off of the stage, ridiculed and they were yelling for his resignation by the time attempt at street theater was over. in the meantime, in chicago come another 3-year-old child come another 3-year-old girl was shot yesterday. ten people a shot total, three of them died. three more murders in chicago yesterday. and that is with all the heat on the gangsters. and the police superintendent there, david brown, proud black man caught up there and announced to the world that there were ten times as many gang bangers as they were chicago cops. there are 12,000 chicago cobs, 117,000 gangsters. i mean, at what point do the
people, the average citizens in that city just revolt? at what point do they say screw you, mayor! we need all the help we can get. even then it might not be enough. >> sean: geraldo, got the two-minute warning in my ear appear that means the president will be taking over for you three not that you are not good guess and great friends. dan bongino you get the last 2 minutes. >> a quick piece of misinformation we have to correct here. these are not federal troops are federal agents. they are not unmarked. they do have markings. they are also federal agents to correct. again more liberal and misinformation on cable news. listen up, folks in every major city in america right now, they don't need permission from anyone to enforce federal law. whoever told you that is absolutely lying. so there you go more liberal misinformation. >> sean: don't we want safety and security? leo terrel, one day i will pull out the old tapes for old times
sake of you being on the show and you and i disagreeing on pretty much everything. >> no. >> sean: i will pull out your earpiece, throw it on your microphone. >> let me get my minute end. let me get my minute in. president trump, this is leo trump 2.0. i'm telling you keep providing safety in the cities. cnn, msnbc you are lying to the democrats. look at the footage that chandra showed about the cities! you are lying! stop having these commentators life about the lack of violence. total violence. president trump continue to do your job. law and order and the democratic city committee is ridiculous, totally ridiculous. >> sean: but apparently we have an extra minute and a half, geraldo. biko go >> sean: well, hey emma you are all favorite peopl. , but really i want the president to act. he can't act geraldo, unless 15
mayors and all all live these liberal cities are saying, we don't want your help! what is wrong with these people? >> chicago though, shaun, chicago is the model. and the mayor is squawking about federal troops and the front door and accepting federal help in the back door. i'm okay with that. i'm okay with, politics is holistic they get the job done. how do you get the job done? to go after organized criminal gangs and put them out of business. >> sean: the president is on the line for kicks and giggles. i want leo -- want you to tell the president in 30 seconds why you are voting for him. and for republicans. >> president trump, listen to me call me later on. the first time ever in my entire life as a republican, i'm voting for you. now, these democratic cities, maintain them and i will go to the network to battle for you. you will win in november, i guarantee it. i'm with you 24/7. >> president trump: you have come a long way, leo.
i have to tell you. [laughter] >> i'm here, i'm here come i'm here now! i'm here right now! i'm here. >> president trump: i appreciate it, i do, thanks, leo, great. >> sean: geraldo, thank you, dan bongino. i
think that might have been the funniest we have had. thank you for joining us, mr. president. a busy number of days for you. a lot of news to get to. i want to spend a lot of time on the violence, the safety, security of our cities. i want to talk about covid a lot. i will start with some breaking news, and that is that earlier today you decided to pull back the convention in jacksonville. you gave a reason. can you give us the reasons again in more detail? >> president trump: it is the china virus, covid, collated a bunch of different names. we are setting an example and we don't want people so close together. we have such enthusiasm and you know we went to north carolina
we wanted to do it there. it was all set. we would build a beautiful facility. they got hit hard, and then the governor really, he could have treated us better. the democrat governor, but we are actually opening up there. then we will make our way -- it won't be your typical convention, it will tell you that but it will be very say. i thought he had an obligation not to have large numbers, massive numbers crowded into a room. >> sean: i've been told, mr. president, from sources of mine and you can come from if you like, i guess maybe i'm not surprised that you are entertaining ideas that i have heard tonight that would be pretty spectacular. would you give us insight into what they are? >> president trump: we have some ideas but it will be different than your typical convention. we have great enthusiasm and the party. i don't think we've had a deep and more so than 2,016th. you see what's going on with the
polls. it is funny, since i made a speech at mount rushmore and since that time, it's been really something. and before that, really. you have all of these fake, suppression polls. just like 2016 when they put out these funny polls, the media. but i tell you what, enthusiasm this party has and they have their president. because we are keeping our city say. we want to go and we can't understand -- i heard you talking with a group, a really good group of three people -- but i heard you talking about the cities and the safeties of the cities. and i have offered them all, everyone of them and there is ten of them, offering all of them, let us go in and we will clean it up. we will clean it up. now in portland, we had to do it because they are anarchists. that is a level people haven't seen. but they are anarchists. they were going wild for a 51 days. and we went in and they've done a great job.
they were going to rip down the courthouse, a gorgeous federal courthouse. so we went in and we have been very, very strong. we have this mayor weyland, who i think also he is the police commissioner, as i understand it. >> sean: wheeler. >> mayor wheeler. and he made a fool out of himself. he wanted to be among the people so we went into the crowd and they knock the hell out of him. that was the end of him. so it was pretty pathetic. but we want to go in and help the cities, help chicago, we want to help all of them. detroit is having problems. a very good police chief in detroit but they are having problems. we go into the cities, any of the cities. we will put in 50,000, 60,000 people that really know what they are doing. and they are strong, tough, and we can solve these problems so fast. but as you know, we have to be invited in. >> sean: mr. president, i want to ask you about that. >> president trump: we have to do something much stronger than being invited him.
but we have to be invited in, go ahead, sean. >> sean: the acting dhs chad wealth, they are subject statuty regions and justification to protect. gnomic federal buildings and that is what is happening. when you talk about 100 agents, we now have 15 mayors. we see this rise in homicide and shootings valente right here on this program a couple of nights ago. 15 people shot in chicago. last week and 70 people shot, 12 dead a 10-year-old and 11-year-old child. you spoke to horace lorenzo anderson sr. i know you invited him to the white house. he lost his 19-year-old son. we'll lost in 8-year-old girl chaz, thomas' own nl and appear at 1-year-old in brooklyn, 7-year-old beautiful young girl in chicago. and one thing that all of these cities have in common, they have been run by liberal democratic mayors, liberal democratic
governors for decades. what do you say the people who boast and argue and say you don't have a chance of winning new york, illinois, california or washington state? >> president trump: you are right. they are run by very liberal people, you can say radical left in some cases. in some cases, just liberal democrats. they are not taking care of they were police. they are not respecting the police. the police do an incredible job. it is a very tough job, a very dangerous job. these mayors, and by the way, governors, senators, congressmen, democrat congressman want to pass stuff to make the police left, they want to take all their power away. you know, you will have a bad situation where you will have a bad cop come a very bad cop. and they have no idea the problem, but you have 99% great people that work hard and get paid not nearly enough here at the job they do with incredible. and these people are just taking
all of their respect. they are taking their guts out, and it is a shame. it is a shame. the police can do the job in seattle. they knew that we were coming in. they went in just before we got there. we were all set to move. but if we were not going to go in, and if they thought we were not going to go in, it would still be bad. but those pleas can do the job. but the mayor and everybody tells him not to do it. the governor. they say not to do it. it is a philosophy. let me tell you, if joe biden ever got income of the whole country would be like that. we have a lot of great cities. great places, great states that don't have any problems. and they look at the things they see in chicago. they look at what they are witnessing in portland, all of these different places. they can't believe what is going on. but we have great places. but we have some instances that nobody has ever seen. i spoke with the mayor of
chicago, mayor lightfoot. and i had a great talk, but within minutes after that talk, you just reported it tonight, a couple of more people shot. young, very young children were shot out. >> sean: so sad. >> president trump: it is a shame. it is a shame. they invited us in and we were going with 55,000 from a 75,000 people. we would be able to solve it like quick. but they just don't want to ask, may be for political reasons, but they don't want to ask. it is a disgrace. >> sean: let me ask you, mr. president. i know a lot has been made over joe biden and his comments he made. i know he backed off of it. he said i said it before the other way. i don't know if he just does not remember what somebody wrote in usa today. he did say the police have now become the enemy. and suppose to help people. then a follow-up was, would you support re-appropriating the money and he said yes. now, not using the term,
democrat seem to walked back the word define appeared reallocation, that would be the same thing. let me play it to remind the audience what he said. >> surplus military equipment for law enforcement. they don't need that for the last thing you need is a humvee coming in like the military invading. they don't want anybody to become the enemy. they are supposed to be protecting these people. my generic point is that -- >> can we agree that we can redirect the funding? >> yes, absolutely. one of the things we also need to be doing is fundamentally changing the way and they've been pushing it for years, changing the way we deal with our present system. >> sean: mr. president, i can remind people, that you did criminal justice reform. biden, vice president barack, they did not, you did police reform they did not. you set record after record of low unemployment. they had a 13 million more americans to food stamps and
8 million in poverty. the labor participation rate in use at record after low for every demographic group. we have opportunities zones. the biggest commitment in terms of length of time to historically black colleges. they didn't do any of those things. your answer to what joe biden, now he is adopting the position of the outcome of the police are the enemy. never set a good word. bernie, aoc green new deal agenda come up pledging trillions of taxpayer dollars and add to that, beto o'rourke and pelosi schumer and biden 125 years in the swamp. your reaction to his team. >> president trump: it is all true but one of the things you mention and he mentioned was the surplus military equipment. when i came in my soon as i came in, i distributed to all of the police department's all over the nation. we had hundreds of millions of dollars and sometimes new, but it was never going to be used. it was sitting in warehouses all over the u.s.
i delivered it all to the police free of charge, all to the police. it was growing dust. it was just sitting there, i guess paying rent or whatever they were doing. i know these massive warehouses. i got it all out to the police. they were so thankful. you know, a lot of it was protective equipment. they didn't want to do it because they thought the police look too strong. they were your sending a strong signal to the police. that it was protecting the police. but there was a lot of protective capability. and it was really a amazing to me. they wouldn't deliver it and they wouldn't do it. and i've got notes, so many notes from the heads of the police department and even from the cops. just guys on the beat thinking for the equipment. we were never going to use it, growing old and growing dusty. so it's a whole different way of thinking. you know, when you talk about the bernie sanders thing, i
think what joe biden -- and i don't think it was him. i think it was the radical left people controlling him like a puppet. i don't think it was him. i don't think he knows what we are talking about. but when we talk about biden, has a manifesto that he agreed to. i call it a manifesto with bernie sanders for open borders and things you wouldn't even believe. these are left-wing at a level that i don't think bernie ever talked about to the same extent. you would think this is a negotiation that bernie would be brought to the right a little bit. i think bernie went further left. biden agreed to all of this stuff. >> sean: let me ask you, sir, i've been in talk radio 30 years. since i began that journey i have been blessed to work at fox. now i'm in my 25th year here. politics is a passion of mine. usually you have candidates. you're probably an exception. what you said in 2016 is what you did. in many ways, people figured out you are very predictable in the
sense if you say it, you mean it come in my view. but usually people run to the base for the primary. ten they ran to the senate. joe biden has adopted bernie's radical wisdom. we are talking trillions of dollars and redistribution, higher taxes. and then i mention beto o'rourke and then schumer, pelosi, biden 125 years. white in this case do you believe he is going harder left than any candidate i have ever seen in my lifetime for sure? >> president trump: because i think he is afraid of the people on his left. i think that when things are radicalized people, and i think he's gone so far. he's given bernie bernie everything. bernie can even believe it. bernie is saying come i can't believe what we forgot. this was a negotiation done very quickly. and today, i saw president obama
with him. remember this, i wouldn't be there if it weren't for those too. they did a good job, you know, iran, but i ran against what they did and i won. nobody campaigned harder than president obama. somebody said obama's coming in here that is okay. we beat him last time. i think he campaign harder than hillary clinton did if you want to know the truth. i talk about air force one, obama was all over the place. but the fact is, biden and obama, i'm here, i'm in the white house because of them. if they did a good job -- people forget they did a good job. and except for the china virus that came in, we were setting every record you could set for unemployment, poor the stock market. every single record you could imagine. and then what we did, we rebuilt the military. we got rid of regulations at a level no administration in eight years or in one case, more than that. no administration has come close.
we appointed -- you know we will have almost an eight could be more, almost 300 federal judges appointed by the end of my first term here that is a record. nobody's ever done anything like that. and two supreme court judges, great ones. >> sean: let me go to joe biden. i argue, and i've watched this and witnessed this my whole professional life. i think that the job you have, i believe, regardless of who is president is the hardest job in the world. you have a lot of burdens on your shoulder. anybody that is president. and i think when they asked redken in 1984 and question whether or not he had the mental alertness, the strength, the stamina to do the job it was a fair question and he answered it in one line the second debate against mondale. let me play the greatest hits of biden and then biden from yesterday and i want your take on what is going on with joe biden. let's play it first.
[phone ringing] >> i don't know who's phone that is. it's been two months. >> good evening. thank you for tuning in. >> look, tomorrow is tuesday, and i want to thank you all. >> i'm telling you, i'm rushing ahead, aren't i? all men and women were created by -- you know the thing. >> my name is joe biden and i'm a democratic candidate for the united states senate. >> do you agree with me? go to joe 3033 o. we choose truth over facts, play the radio and make sure the television, excuse me, make sure you have a record player on at night. make sure the kids hear words. >> kids are just as talented as
white kids. >> donald trump as opposed -- it's not hypothetical. >> why in god's name someone clipping coupons in the stock market pay a lower tax rate than someone who in fact, like i said to come a schoolteacher. >> i'm sorry i'm confused who i am talking to but anyway whoever it is the hospital, bent down and whispered in my ear. go home and get me pillows and make sure, actually, actually nothing actually taught. you can't do it in the covid time but they actually breathe in my nostrils to make me move. >> wearing a mask is not a political statement? this is more patriotic. why do you wear the mask? so you don't make somebody else sick? sick. what is with this guy? >> steve, that is our time.
>> sean: mr. president, i'm not a doctor and i won't play one. i think joe biden has aged dramatically since he left office. he doesn't seem very alert. he does seem to be protected and hiding. and interviews shut off by handlers. what is your reaction, sir? >> president trump: in all fairness i know people 90, 91, 92 sharp as a tack. bernie marcus is an example, home depot and others. numerous. but you know, it is hard to comment on somebody. he is an opponent. you have to be very sharp. i'm dealing with the heads of these countries. and every one of them is a world-class display. if you are not 100% on your game, if you are not 100% sharp plus, you've got a problem. i looked at what we have in this country. i came in and i guessed it from before, but after i saw what was going on with horrible trade deals, horrible military deals,
money being spent, sent out like water. you have seen what i have done with nato $140 billion, but really much more than that. it increases every year. countries are now paying for what we are doing. someone fair, so many different things that you don't have enough time. i could go all night with it. but you have to be on your game, sharp, tough, and if you are not, these guys will take you to the cleaners. and they will take you to the cleaners like you have never seen before. it is so easy. and he wasn't, he wasn't the best in his heyday. let's not kid ourselves. everybody knows that. senators, it is best that he wasn't. but i see the statements he is making now, and i don't think he has much of a clue. >> sean: mr. president, when you spoke about canceling the convention in jacksonville, you were passionate about it today. use of the timing is not right.
and we knew there would be flareups, this is a virus worse than 1918 and you said i have to protect the american people. that is what i have always done and that is what i will always do. that's what i'm about. we can make this work easily. and you also reminded people the importance of masks. people say that you haven't been as outspoken as maybe you should have been on masks, but there were people telling us well-known experts not to wear masks in march for crying out loud. and socially distancing and the cdc just released last week that if people wear the masks, this thing could be gone in four to six weeks. what can you read about therapeutics and what can you read about a potential vaccine? you mention pfizer today. >> president trump: you know at the beginning, many people very many respected people and i won't mention names but many respected people say don't wear a mask. they are bad and you touch your
face too much. you get your hands near your eyes and your nose and they are bad. then all of a sudden, it was a big thing to get masks. i'm all for it. look, whatever is going to help, 5% chance or 2% chance, wear it. and i will wear it. i worry it at walter reed hospital the other day. i went to the hospital and visited soldiers who had been badly injured in iraq. it is terrible in afghanistan. i saw one so badly injured here and you know what, we are largely down to a very small force in both places. we were serving as policeman over there. we can police our own country, especially when you look at chicago and what is happening around the country. you know, we have done a lot. we have done a lot. but you have to, we have to get our country back. we have to get rid of this horrible plague that hit us and hit us hard. but it didn't just hit us. if the whole world commission on peer the whole world was hit.
china allowed it to escape to europe and to the whole world, including us. and they are suffering. you don't see that too much in the news, but you have countries that are going through relatively what we are doing plus plus plus. it is horrible. and we make ventilators because we have become the best in the world for the ventilators. making thousands a month. we are sending supplies all over. we are in great shape from the standpoint, but we have this thing that is very, very contagious. nobody's ever seen anything like it. very, very highly contagious. if you look at a map, we have large sections of the country in great shape. and we are going to win and we will wins sooner rather than later. i will say this on the vaccines, we are doing well we have the greatest companies in the world including we are dealing with other nations. we are working closely and therapeutically, therapeutics i think are going to be fantasticks.
frankly, i would like to have at first because you can go into the hospital and get a shot and do whatever he have to do and they get better right away. we are doing very well therapeutically, and we are doing well with vaccines. >> sean: we know new studies have come out. i had dr. oz on my radio show this week that hydroxychloroquine used early with azithromycin and zinc and you took a lot of heat over it. mortality rate cut in half according to the full study. the local hospital retrospective study in new york. let me add you tweeted out tonight baseball is back. by the way, poor dr. fauci and i really do believe and i think people try to divide both of you, that he has tried his best. dr. birx has tried her best. all of the models and experts and many, many ways were so wrong. the one thing that remained consistent was the most vulnerable, the elderly hear those were compromise conditions or immune systems and
preconditioned conditions. so i ask you where are we with the vaccine, the therapeutics, how soon and do you want every american if they can't socially distance to wear the mask? i so want baseball and football to open so we can go. and i want to protect grandmas and grandpa's. >> president trump: i would like to see everybody that can't spread or they can't be socially distant, then i think they should probably put it on. even if it's, let's say, 50% chance were 25%. because again come at the same experts were saying don't wear it at one point. so let's go with him. what difference does it make? we have to get rid of this thing. so let's say they are right and there is a 50% chance or 25% chance, we are not going to lose with it. so do it. but again, as i said come i think you will have some answers very, very soon on therapeutics and also one vaccines. these companies i'm dealing with them directly and i'm getting
reports directly. they are very far advanced and already started testing. what i have done through the fda dr. hahn and great people, we have ramped it up to a level that he has ever seen speed like this. we could be two or three years out before we are doing what we are doing. we are already testing. we are actually doing the testing for vaccines and therapeutics. that would have happened in a normal administration, i will say, that would have happened two or three years from now. so we are way, way advanced. i think you will have some very good answers very soon. they will come up with the answer. >> sean: mr. president, you are asking the american people and 103 days, some voting early. by the way, i have information on my website hannity.com. who your congressperson is up for election. and 103 days, i said to the american people, the ultimate jury. you were asking th the american people for four more years.
if you are given the four more years, what will this country look like in your view, four years from now? >> president trump: so it's all going to be about america first. we always put other countries before us which is so foolish and so horrible. it's been so destructive for us. it's about america first. we will help other countries, but we want to take care of ourselves. we will be building factories. we will bring in shops like never seen. we were all set to do it before we got hit with a virus. the words are ending. very few soldiers and as you know in afghanistan from a very few in iraq, seriously except the oil, we have the oil they are. we kept it. we took it over. we will be about jobs like you haven't seen. we will be respected, and we are now by other countries. and many, many decades. we will have a wall that is
complete, 257 miles and by the way, if we didn't have that wall right now, you would have numbers in texas and california, new mexico like you wouldn't believe. but we built 257 miles, 450 but we will do about 537 miles altogether. and a complete, beautiful wall on the southern border that will really help. the other thing, we will start making products. i have been pushing this before this happened. we are going to make things here. we will make them here. right now china and many other countries are doing what we are supposed to be doing. they became globalists, these great geniuses became globalist. and they really hurt our country. we are going to start making it here. elon musk, i said elon, build a factory in texas. he just announced building one of the biggest plants in the world, a plan for tesla. and it will be in texas. you know, it is great. he called me up a little while
ago to say i got it done. in that meeting, he got it done. i was pushing that job very hard from elon. we work with him and we do a lot for him. it's time. he was great. he's doing a great job. the other thing we have done is space for. the first time in 76 years, we have a new force. we have what is so important, the army, navy, air force, marines, coast guard, now we have the air force. it is so great. and it's so important. and it will end up at first, i didn't even talk about that on the campaign. this was after i got in office. i realized we need it. because we need space. we can't let that -- and now we will be going to space. they are not too happy what we did with air force. with space for spirits and we now have space for us, so important and so many other things, sean, regulation cuts, tax cuts the biggest in history, and we will continue that
foreword. there is still many things we can do. but the bottom line, we are putting americ america first ane making america better than it's ever been. you will see we will have a great year next year, great third quarter appear with a nice thing about the third quarter, the results will come out before the election. >> sean: you know, i've been saying to my audience in radio and tv that the biggest choice election in our lifetime, literally, taxes higher, lower, deregulation more regulation, law and order, lawlessness, amnesty or border security. judges, energy, trade, foreign policy, it seems like you are running against a team. and the team is joe, bernie, bernie sanders, the socialist, aoc, green new deal, dado, schumer, pelosi so i think it i. i want to go back to baseball. you announced today, you will throw out the first pitch at
yankee stadium august 15th. dr. fauci did not do too well tonight with the nationals. have you ever thrown out a first pitch before? are you nervous about throwing out the first pitch? derek jeter said george bush after 9/11. and if you bounce it, you will get food. >> president trump: and the outcome i have thrown out first pitch is but i agreed to do it for the yankees on i think they are playing the boston red sox. that is a great rivalry. and it's great that baseball is back in other sports are back. i hope everyone is standing. i hope they will not be kneeling when the flag is raised. i don't like to see that. that would've hurt a lot of people in our country. we don't want to see that with nfl, baseball, basketball or anything else. there were plenty of places you can protest. you don't have to protest on the raising of the flag. so a lot of great things happening for a country. one other thing i want to say, we have made incredible trade deals. we will continue that long. we got taken to the cleaners by
every country. ally or nonlife, we were taken to the cleaners. we will keep that going. >> sean: mr. president mark meadows your chief of staff recently indicated indictments could be indicated in the durham probe. we have big, breaking news tonight. i don't know if you saw the opening of the show, document declassified by your director of national intelligence john radcliffe repealing the fbi agent who gave you that defensive briefing in august 2016. used it as a cover to monitor you and michael flynn as it relates to russia. do you remember it? also, i believe jim comey and a position to have proven he had lied when he said to you at trump tower, the dossier is salacious but unverified. but he swore that it was accurate and true when he signed the phis application to spy on you and your campaign. take away carter page's rights. what is your reaction to this news, and your thoughts on where this probe with john durham is going?
>> president trump: it is more and more things that you see. and that's only what you see. it is really bad. it is a terrible thing that happened. it should never happen to another president. the fact is that president obama and vice president biden, brennan, comey, mccabe, lisa page, peter struck her lever and beyond him, long beyond them they spied on the c, using the intelligence agents of the country and illegally, this is illegal as can be, treason, many things they spied on the campaign of another par party. both before and after victory. both before and after. never done before. it is so bad and the other side, they would have been in jail for two years. it would have been a 50 year term. but obama and biden knew everything and they spied on the campaign of the opposing party, using intelligence.
>> sean: do you -- well, this raises a question. now we know what happened in the oval office january 5th. do you think that barack obama, the former president, joe biden, should have to answer for what we now know happen 15 days before your inauguration in the oval office? we have one minute, sir. >> president trump: that was just one meeting. there were many meetings. there is no way i understand the system very well. i understand being president very well. there is no way this could have gone down without president obama knowing every single thing. and even biden brought up the logan act with respect to general flynn. a great gentleman treated so horribly and still is. a lot of things have been learned. and what happened is a disgrace. again, should have never, ever happened t to the president. >> sean: are you concerned with the people involved, the less 15 seconds. >> president trump: i've looked at a lot of different people and they have been treated extremely unfairly.
i think i probably would, yes. >> sean: mr. president, thank you for your time. 103 days the american people will make the ultimate decision. we
appreciate you always, thank you for taking time for the audience. >> president trump: thank you. >> sean: that is all the time we have left. my book coming out in three days let not your heart be troubled, hit the post. >> laura: that was fantastic. >> sean: that is what i do. you yelled at me the last time i was late. >> laura: hannity, the last thing i was engrossed in the interview that i had to like i forgot i was not connected to. i was like listening to you want this speaker. oh, my god, not connected. and so i could have used an extra 20 seconds tonight. so you made another mistake. >> sean: i can ever win. if i'm on time for him if i hit the post, don't hit the post. when i give the 30 seconds i stole from the last interview can i get in trouble. i get in trouble no matter what it. >> laura: i'm listening on the speaker and i realize, oh,
