mike tobin in lviv. no signs of slowing. first to benjamin hall on the ground in kyiv where leaders remained defiant. benjamin. >> good morning. a very significant strike this morning by russian forces. 12 miles from the polish border. thirty-five people dead. the largest biggest loss of life since this conflict began in a single strike. a former nato training facility which housed u.s. troops just a few weeks ago. russia said armed shipments would be targeted. as well as coming into the country. an attempt to cut off the supply of weapons. meanwhile, there is been repeated shelling overnight. still, though, no major to push into the city itself. the concern now is as with other cities ground invasions forfeit indiscriminate shelling.
the president warning them against it. [speaking in native tongue] >> if they kill all of us and they will enter kyiv. if this is the goal, then let them enter. they will not find friends among us. >> ukrainian forces have had significant success ambushing russian convoys. it is also because the russian army has reported their equipment as old. they have been relying on overwhelming force. now they are trying to put in place a civil governance of their own. kidnapping one mayor and replacing him with tears. also pushing to set up breakaway states in the south. even there they are facing resistance. hundreds of people coming out and protesting the new occupation. a reminder that they will never tolerate russian rule. the siege of major cities
continue with hundreds of thousands still stuck without water, food, keyed, medicine. the mayor is over 1500 people dying in that city alone. other small towns and cities have been totally destroyed. on the diplomatic front, the foreign minister says that they are willing to negotiate, but they will not surrender. president macron spoke with president putin yesterday speaking just a 24 hour cease fire. president volodymyr zelensky saying israel may be able to remediate between the two countries. >> benjamin, thank you. earlier we took a look at russia's latest maneuvers. fox news strategic analyst. >> thanks for being here. >> look at what is happened over the last 24 hours. still big movement in the south.
the big focus was out west. the strikes, one of them just miles from the polish border. significant. >> opening up a campaign in the west here. after two weeks of the war. the north and south and east side of ukraine. this is about taking control of this area eventually. starting with an aerial campaign very close to the polish border care. it is well-established. ukrainians coming through poland and through romania. eventually they will interdict supplies coming in here. >> audit. >> another airfield here in another hit over the past 36 hours. the ukrainian still have 56 airplanes left. most of them positioned in the west. that is it another reason for the bombing campaign. >> taking a look at kyiv here. this is the central city.
it seems that this red is the russian forces coming down. there is also a big movement this way. >> there is to. where they are is right at the outskirts of the city now. it has taken them almost two weeks to get there. the purpose of that is they are on the northwest side in the northeast side of the city. the purpose is to encircle the city. go around the circle is a circle would indicate. they are bringing their children forward. once i get that artillery in position around the city, as soon as it is in range they will start. it will be consistent and persistent once they circle the city. this is the russian way of war. their intent is to rule as much of that city they can, slaughter the people inside of it and get a capitulation out of volodymyr zelensky without having to go into the city. >> this is crimea.
we sell forces move out from here. and marrow pool, that very same philosophy is happening. >> they are under siege. they have shut off the water, food coming into the city. it is establishing a land bridge to crimea. over here in odessa, what they are attempting to do is make certain that the entire black sea is cut off. i don't know why my finger doesn't work. >> trying to get the coast. this will be a major operation. probably weeks away. >> this is not a fast operation throughout the country. i want to take you to a bigger map here. the act of interdicting it.
>> there is no doubt about it. they know whole while that other road from poland and romania are the sources that are sustaining in ukrainians. this is a lifeline for ukrainian military. if it gets shut down its likely ukraine will have big problems. >> this is iraq and the kurdish region. our u.s. consulate hit overnight by 12 rockets fired from where we believe inside iran. >> here we are negotiating a deal with the iranians as we speak. this is the fallacy of that deal. it does not cover the behavior. it does not cover the prohibition on ballistic missiles. why are they firing these missiles here? they want the united states out of iraq. they want to create a violent situation where the legislature and government at some point make a decision to ask the
americans to leave. the iranians have confidence about this, why? because we gave up seven military bases and three ci basis east of iran and afghanistan. they want us west of iran. >> fortunately, no one killed their. general, as always, thank you. >> it's great being with you, brett. >> deputy secretary wendy sherman. madam secretary, welcome to fox news sunday. >> good to be with you. i want to start with where we left off their. that it is these ballistic missiles fired on the u.s. consulate in iraq from inside iran just in the past few minutes iran is now claiming responsibility for that attack. what is the reaction to that and is there going to be a response. >> this was a very concerning attack as a general pointed out. indeed we do not believe that the consulate was actually the target of this missile attack.
we are very glad that our facilities are secure, that everybody is accounted for, that no one has been hurt or killed, but all that said, this is great concern. there will indeed be a statement, i am sure coming out shortly as well as calls in. this was he and i attack on iraq sovereignty among other things and of grave concern to all of us. we will be following this closely. >> u.s. personnel that work and live there. no casualties as of yet that we have heard of. at the same time, the u.s. is closing in on this nuclear deal with iran. is that true? is it close? >> we would like all the parties including russia, as indicated it has some concerns to bring this to a close. we are very concerned about what iran is doing. imagine these iranians with a nuclear weapon. we need to get that off the table so we can address their behavior in the middle east and
we will do all of the above. first we have to get this deal and it is not yet closed. >> madam secretary, you can understand the average disconnect from the americans watching this. sitting at the table with the russians and beyond. getting fired upon by iran. the target was not the u.s. consulate, but that is where it ended up help people square this circle because it does not seemed like a lot of people think we should be doing that. >> it is hard to understand. i appreciate that. but here is the deal. if iran has a nuclear weapon, its ability to project power into the middle east and deter us is enormous. so, president biden, we need to make sure that iran never obtains a nuclear weapon. and then we need to make sure we deal with their behavior in the region. but, first, we have to make sure that they cannot obtain a
nuclear weapon. >> to more questions. do you think this deal is as good as a 2015 deal? >> i think we do not know yet. it is not closed. it is not finished. we are urging all parties to do what they need to and there is a lot of onus on iran to decide whether or not they want to move forward or not. come into compliance and ensure that iran never has a nuclear weapon. >> regardless of whether a deal is reached or not, is there a plan to deal with iran's regional behavior, proxies, terrorism fighting these missiles, drones, whether there is a deal with removing sanctions are not? >> absolutely. very high priority. working with our partners and allies to do exactly that. >> there is reporting that two iranians belonging to a force plotting to assassinate former national security adviser john bolton according to the justice department. this is the washington examiner reporting that the department
possesses evidence against iranians at the biden administration resisting publicly indicting the man. do you know that to be true? >> what i know to be true as we have a responsibility to protect american citizens from harm. we do that every single day and that is true of all present and past american officials and that is our highest priority. >> nothing is being held back. we will protect americans wherever they are, however we can. >> these new strikes overnight in the west, just miles from the polish border. the death toll now at 35. 135 wounded there. nothing nato or the u.s. has done so far has stopped vladimir putin. how does this into? >> right now it looks like it ends very badly already for the ukrainian people. i think we all spend every day
just horrified at the suffering of the american people, as your reporter on the ground discussed. it is just awful. people will either starve to death or freeze to death or die because they don't have their medicine. it is truly horrifying. there are two objectives that we have. one is to support ukraine in every way we can and since the biden administration has began, we have put $1.2 billion forward and security assistance that helped ukraine defend itself against this horrible attack. the second is to put enormous pressure on vladimir putin to try to change his calculus to end this war to get a cease-fire in the first instance, to get humanitarian corridors and to end this invasion. that pressure is beginning to have some affect. we are seeing some signs of a willingness to have real serious negotiations, but i have to say as your reporter said, so far, it appears that vladimir putin is intent on destroying ukraine.
we need to help ukrainians in every way we can. >> madam secretary, everyone is wary of world war iii. on capitol hill, now more and more lawmakers. it seems to be said that they are tired of giving putin the upper hand here. at least publicly. here is senator mitt romney. >> president putin has actually said the things that we are doing our provocative. he's already said that the sanctions we put in place are like declaring war. he will continue saying that. we are fearful of provoking him. it is time for him to be fearful of us. >> as our way to flip the script here? >> i think we've already started to flip that script, brett. $1.2 billion in security assistance, antitank, anti-armor, anti-aircraft is really helping ukraine to resist what your reporter said is a army of russia where putin very badly miscalculated how this war would go.
it is nonetheless horrifying for rick rainey -- ukrainian people. we want to try to mediate and this terrible terrible situation. >> supportive in every way. these jets from poland really seem to be a mixed message. republicans are now talking about that openly. criticizing the administration. here is senator tom cotton. take a listen. >> they are saying on the one hand ukraine is not effectively using its current aircraft and cannot effectively use this aircraft. on the other hand, vladimir putin will use this at such an escalation he may strike the united states or strike nato. both of those things cannot be true. >> ukrainians do not need applause, they need jets. >> ukrainians say that they do want these megs, whether we
assess that they are good or not for the battlefield, why not get them that. >> if i were president volodymyr zelensky i would want everything and anything i could possibly get. so i understand this. the pentagon, however, made an assessment that trying to move these planes was very complicated. backfilling them was virtually impossible. that what ukrainians really needed were anti-aircraft, antitank antiarmor weapons which is what we are supplying them in great measure and coordinating with other countries to do the same. i understand the frustration. one of the things i think has been really horrific as there is been bogged partisan support for ukraine. i am really grateful that congress recently passed the legislation. providing an additional $200,000, secretary lincoln signed yesterday. this is the bipartisan effort at the conference.
a strong bipartisan delegation in support of ukraine and there is that kind of support on capitol hill which i think sends an important signal, not only to ukraine, but to putin that he cannot divide america, he can't divide nato, he can't divide europe, key cannot divide the world. 141 countries signed up at the un general assembly announcing what vladimir putin is doing. this is one man's choice to wage a premeditated, unjust, unprovoked war against a sovereign country. we cannot let it stand. >> quickly. has a russia china relationship suffered or strengthened as a result of this invasion? >> i think that that is an open question, bret, to be perfectly honest. we sell russia and china come closer together certainly before the olympics putting out along manifesto about their partnership and how they would move forward together. at the same time, we see china pretty uncomfortable within invasion of a sovereign country.
the people's republic of china has often said that sovereignty is key. territorial integrity is key. country should decide their own political future. we agree with those principles. we hope that china does as well. in two weeks, latimer putin undid 30 years of economic development. there was an international order that china and russia both subscribe to that helped both countries develop russia. that is now gone. we are seeing them take out of every organization. the president will move forward with the congress on removing them from the most favored nation status at the wto, the wto. i think the prc is watching very closely. >> yet they are sounding very bold, madam secretary. china warned any country supporting taiwan militarily would face both the worst
consequences, adding no one, no force would be able to stop the communist party if it attacks taiwan. that does not sound positive. the last question i have for you, has russia's invasion change in calculus as it comes to taiwan? >> i hope that china is looking very carefully at what is happening. we have a united world with very great and very consequential sanctions on russia. we understand and support a one china policy. but we do not believe that china prc ought to take taiwan by force and we will do everything that we can to deter that effort by the prc and i think they are watching very closely. in fact, i think they made that statement, bret, because they have seen what has happened and they are trying go on the offense knowing that they ought to be on the defense. >> secretary sherman, thank you. thank you for your time this
weekend. >> thank you. >> coming up we will get reactions from the top republican on the senate relations committee. ♪♪ life... doesn't stop for diabetes. be ready for every moment, with glucerna. it's the number one doctor recommended brand that is scientifically designed to help manage your blood sugar. live every moment. glucerna. live every moment. riders! let your queries be known. yeah, hi. instead of letting passengers wrap their arms around us, could we put little handles on our jackets? -denied. -can you imagine? i want a new nickname. can you guys start calling me snake? no, bryan. -denied. -how about we all get quotes to see if we can save with america's number one motorcycle insurer? approved. cool! hey, if bryan's not gonna be snake, can i be snake? -all: no.

(announcer) change your life now at golo.com bret: diplomatic efforts are fast becoming intertwined with another delicate matter is you just heard, 11th hour efforts to revive a nuclear deal with iran as russia tries to push back on sanctions. joining us now from boise idaho, ranking member of the foreign relations committee. welcome back to fox news sunday. >> thank you, bret. good to be with you again. >> you just heard deputy secretary sherman. let's start with iran and what
is happening with that deal. what is your sense of this? >> well, you know, sitting here listening to this, i feel like the administration is living in an alternative universe from where we are. i heard wendy, well, they did not really intend to shoot at our embassy there in iraq, what else were they shooting at? they fired seven missiles out of iraq that hit near where the new construction on the embassy there. this is nothing. and then it sounds like it had the effect that the iranians wanted. they hit, they fired these missiles at a u.s. insulation and now wendy is saying we need to get signed as quickly as possible. that got them exactly what they wanted, it sounds like to me. this is nonsense. >> is the administration
briefing congress on where they are on that deal? >> no, they are not. they promised they would come out they have not. they are out of touch with congress. it would be nice if they would brief us. this is an awful deal when it was made the first time around. what we are hearing and we are getting only leakage, it will be worse this time. you've got to remember what is happening here. the iranians are sitting at a table, the russians and the chinese are in their. they don't even let the u.s. delegation in that room. they are sitting at the kids table out in the hall peeking through the keyhole to see what is going on. you have the iranians and the russians negotiating a deal for us. what could possibly go wrong here. >> but you cannot do anything about it. you can't do anything about it on capitol hill. >> there is no question about that. they refuse just as the obama administration did to submit it
to congress as required by the constitution to be submitted as a treaty. if it was submitted as a treaty and we voted on it, there would be a deal. there is no deal. even if the biden administration signs. they have what is called an executive agreement with iran. it will not last past the next republican president that is elected just like the last deal did not last the minute that the republicans took over. look, if you are going to get this done, everybody needs to get together on this and we need to have a deal with this. a good deal. this is not even close. >> let's turn to ukraine. how do you stop vladimir putin without starting world war iii? >> well, there is no doubt, you always have to keep in mind that you do not want to escalate direct confrontation with russia. i would not call it world war iii, i think that if the thing
did get away there, i think that it would end pretty quickly. with the conventional forces that he has had there, you know, we have not seen this in a long, long time. i am not as concerned about that. i think that you always have to be wary of that, but, look, the administration has projected week throughout this. it's been too little too late from the beginning. remember, everything that we have tried to do they said no and then eventually they say yes. that started with the sanctions, that started with giving them stinger missiles they said no. then when our ally stepped up and gave stingers they said okay. the same thing with the javelin. they said no and then when our ally stepped out they said yes. they are just dragging their feet. if you project witness, you will have a real problem. that's going on with both iran and russia right now and it is a serious situation. we need them to project some
strength. >> senator, there are some in your party who think that some of these sanctions are having a reverberation on americans in the middle of the country. and that we need to have kind of a cost basis analysis for what were doing before we levy these things. how do you respond to that. >> we've been doing these sanctions for a long time. there is collateral damage sometimes in the sanctions. but the sanctions are usually not broad blanketed. they have what are called waivers in them where you can put them on surgically. but, you always have to be concerned about that when you are putting on sanctions that you are not shooting yourself in the foot when you do it. this is a delicate operation and it is watched very carefully. it is not painting with a broad brush. it's not shooting with the shotgun, it is very targeted,
very much shot with a rifle. >> there are some former military folk general set of written an open letter to call for a no-fly zone. we urge the biden administration together with nato allies to oppose a limited no-fly zone over ukraine starting with protection for humanitarian corridors that were agreed upon in talks with russian and ukrainian officials on thursday. is that feasible or is that too dangerous and crosses the line where you will have confrontation? >> it is feasible, but there are dangers involved with that. this is another thing that we have been pushing the administration on for some time. the ukrainians can pretty much put up there own no-fly zone if we supplied them with the missiles that we have that the allies have, the surface-to-air missiles. the russians do this. they supplied it to the eastern ukrainian breakaways and they
brought down an airline with it. as you remember, they brought down a malaysian airliner some time ago. the stingers are to light. only about 15,000 feet. they are not quite fast enough. they do some good, the patriots are too big, the launch system is about 5 million. but, there is a lot of stuff in between. it is intermediate. there were used to affect their own fly zone. >> you voted against and in there is the aide for ukraine. you're talking about aid going to ukraine, but you voted against that. >> well, the problem, if it was just that straight up vote, this would've been an absolute no-brainer for me. i support that 100%, i have. the other port that they have in
there, the numerous other things, there is a piece in there that americans don't realize. it brings back earmarks. we fought for years to get rid of those earmarks. in addition to those there was some gun legislation that was included in that. a couple of the gun lobby's were very much against. there was some information in there that a number of the group were against. whenever we had these big bills, you're damned if you do and damned if you don't if you vote yes or no. no one would take this as not being the support or the ukrainian people. ukrainian war. bret: we appreciate your time. have to leave it there. >> threat, always good to be with you. thanks for having me. bret: they leave their homes behind bringing only what they can carry. the dangerous trek millions are making to escape hard. the biden's administration response to the war. ♪♪

the images are heartbreaking. ukrainian families hugging good by his mother take children towards the border, father stay behind to fight it just re- weeks into the war more than two and a half million ukrainians have fled to other european countries. let's turn out to mike tobin in lviv. i do want to warn our viewers that there are some images here that you may find disturbing. mike. >> well, bret, it has driven against from their home here in the west of ukraine. the reality is hard to witness and some of that is reflected in this report. >> the town had been spared from the bombing. until friday. they fled in 15 minutes and then spent 20 hours on the train. she has only what she could carry and has not thought about
a new home. >> we are just leaving now. >> the exodus of refugees has slowed, but not stopped. highways remained jams, buses are packed, crossings over ukraine's western border operator capacity. on the platform of the lviv central train station, the arduous journey proved too much for one elderly person, another victim of vladimir putin's decision to invade. a lot of the people you see are the people that have been stuck in their bomb shelters four days and they finally had a chance to make a break for it. >> she was running straight to the metro station. >> surviving world war ii with her daughters and her grandchildren she spent 11 days in a bomb shelter until they could flee. and then that town was struck. >> we woke up because we heard
that something was exploding outside the mac they fled again with only the family cat. dakota blankets that they are carrying were all donated. the men stayed to fight. svetlana is hopeful she will see her husband again. hopeful when the violence ends that the people of ukraine will see a fresh start. >> we are russian-speaking people. it is strange to hear that somebody come to us to liberate us. why are you killing your own people? >> they come here hoping that it is safer than the east of the country but the west has now seen three airstrikes. killing 35 people just 60 miles from u.s. troops stationed in poland. the mayor posted a message asking the u.s. and nato rhetorically do you now understand that war is closer than you imagine. bret. >> mike tobin reporting live from lviv. time now for our sunday group.
steve harrigan, jason, usa today washington bureau chief susan page, former state department spokeswoman maria fox news contributor. good to have you in studio, all of you. especially you, steve. you up into a lot of war zones for us and for others. put this in context. >> it is a movie that i have seen before. it is a bad movie. twenty years ago when i started, putin surrounded the capital and -- it is a verb now. their rumbling cities. they rubble that until everyone was dead or left. and every day we were waiting. did it fall, did it fall. they put us in an armored vehicle and drove us in. it looks like the moon. kyiv could look like the moon in six months. i don't see what will stop it. he has done it before.
i see how this ends. >> we just heard deputy secretary of state talking about how do you stop putin. right now it is the international get together to try to sanction him to affect him on the ground, but it does not seemed like it is moving. >> first i think we should recognize what an incredible job ukrainian people have done. their predictions were kyiv would fall in one-five days. we are in week three of this war. there is no expectation that russia will not prevail in terms of taking control of a great part of ukraine. that will open a different kind of conflict there. we will have a different role. moving to an insurgency. we will have questions about the government. i think that that is the planning that is now going on within the united states government in the capital in europe. >> new poles from cbs about the president's handling of this
situation, russia and ukraine. 46% in this latest poll. sanctions on russia's oil and gas, 77% support in the newest poll just out today. that is a lot of support in america despite the fact that we are feeling it at the pump. >> every american needs the resident of vice president to be doing well. it is no time to just be throwing political barbs for the sake of politics. i think americans are frustrated. are we so hesitant to sanction russian oil? how is it that we are still buying russia oil and not developing u.s. assets? the president at the state of the union talked about by america, by america, by america, but does not want to buy american energy. there things that could help by being pro- american energy. >> you heard senator romney say that he is sick of hearing that
we are afraid of putin. that he needs to be afraid of us. but there is that balancing act. getting into a war with russia directly changes the dynamic. >> it does. president biden has led the world in this isolation. i think that this will have an credible impact on his people. maybe on government officials, on people that have some power or some leverage with putin. that is a goal. that is not an immediate solution. the challenge is to ways we can support them militarily that don't escalate, don't get to world war iii or even a direct confrontation with russia. there is no magic bullet, no plane or weapon that we could give them to do that. i think that it's a real inflection point for nato. committed to defending its members. we have not figured out how we can defend non-nato members that are threatened by the soviet --
excuse me, by russia. whether it's georgia, ukraine, we are to real inflection point for this alliance that was formed to counter. >> speaking of nato, article five means that we need to come to the aid of anybody under attack. these missiles at this base are just 12 miles from the border with poland. one strike and suddenly we picked up article five. >> that is right. keep in mind the forces arriving on both sides now. volunteers from around the world, and fight with us. putin said he is bringing dickstein thousand from the middle east. there will be atrocities in this war. >> susan, it does seemed like the bad actors in the world seem emboldens. you have iran firing missiles on our base. our consulate in iraq even though the administration as it was not targeted to that.
you have china with this very aggressive statement about taiwan just yesterday. you have russia that is not stopping. why is this happening? >> china's attitude towards taiwan, does it make it easier to take action because they see russia moving in or doesn't get harder because they see the united u.s. response to it? in rhetoric i think it has been very concerning to a lot of american officials. the iranian attack, it was targeting israeli facilities. i do not think that it matters to the people looking at the u.s. consulate whether it was actually aimed at them or not. it is one more obstacle to this iranian deal which is already been stalled. toxin out on friday before this attack. maybe we are seeing a new arrangement in the world getting organized in which some of these forces, china, russia, iran will
be more of a problem then they have been in the past. maybe it will be a situation where the rest of the world is more united against them. >> the president does need to lead an effort to make sure that the world is united. i do not see president whited out there in front of this making sure that we are bringing that united coalition and making it as painful as possible on putin. making sure that they are talking tough and doing things about china. it seems as if we are reactionary. >> it does. talking about that russia china relationship. >> these two dictators are increasingly working together. i think that we will see more of that soon. china has been putting on this notion of neutrality. i think that it will be clear soon that they are more of a co-conspirator and ukraine. >> mr. sherman said that it is still not certain how china will
fall. but it is concerning what they are doing and saying. >> i agree that it is not certain. i think that beijing and leaders in china actually think that the international system can be used to their advantage. they don't really want to blow up the international system where putin does. every international effort to bring him back in line. i do not think that we should assume that about china and we should have right now and intense diplomatic effort to try to bring china away from moscow. there other countries we have to work on, to. israel had a closer relationship with russia. india. there should be i hope a diplomatic full-court press going on around the world for countries that do have ties to russia to pull them away. especially after you see these atrocities. how can you defend that? >> the prospect of sitting at a table with putin right now and negotiating. even if china is at that table.
>> we have to stop treating putin mikey is a president. he is exiled. we have to take a break here. gas prices so high. it depends on who you ask. we will explore that next. ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪ get your tv together with the best of live and on demand. directv stream. - [female narrator] five billion people lack access to safe surgery. with the best of live and on demand. thousands of children are suffering and dying from treatable causes. for 40 years, mercy ships has deployed floating hospitals to provide the free surgeries these children need.

inflation 34% according to this poll. on the overall job approval 42% which is a little bit of an up tick. the midterm, questions about progression will, democrats 41. jason, that line that it is putin behind the uptick. obviously we can point back to before this invasion where it was all going up. how does it sound politically? >> there is no basis in fact four. the federal reserve are the ones responsible for inflation. day one joe biden shut down the keystone pipeline, he shut down our ability to expand our developing energy products of federal land and whatnot. that is all one joe biden. they wanted higher gas prices in order to prove the case for their green new deal. it has nothing to do with putin. it's making it worse, but that is not where it started. he can reverse course and open
up energy production in the united states and you can write inflation by curbing u.s. spending. >> how big political vulnerability is a gas prices and fueling at home that you are paying more for food and everything else. >> is a huge vulnerability. it israel. we all feel it. that is why you heard president biden announces state of the union that he is opening up the strategic oil reserves. we produced plenty of oil and other types of energy in this country. they will be making that case. he wants to make the case about what they've done to rebuild the economy. there is some good economic news combined with some bad economic news. it is hard, bret, as you know, when you go to the pump and things are more expensive. i think that they will try to do something. the fed will take action on interest rates which i think is supposed to help, but president biden cannot do a whole lot to address inflation. that is the reality. >> the energy question. you out of the administration

like hell every day for the things that matter in people's lives. we need to talk like real people. >> we need to talk like real people, susan. they know that there is an uphill battle heading into november. >> democrats have been looking for reset. they've been looking for reset during the state of the union address just two weeks ago. you saw at the meeting with house democrats in philadelphia that biden address them, but did not outline what they should be trying to do in the united way to try to pass more legislation on the hill that will deliver results. you really get the sense that they are braced for the worst possible outcome in november. we are still nine months away, but, it is a tough time for democrats looking at november. >> former president trump had a big rally last night. he talked again about the 2020 election. former attorney general bill bar has been talking about his book.
he said this about republicans. >> i would also say that the make america great again movement has two mature. people are very angry in 2016. they did not like the smug elites and the excesses of the media and of the progressives. and in some ways, trump was there wrecking ball. taking a wrecking ball to these people. he did disrupt the momentum of the left. i give him credit for that. but to make america great again requires more than that and requires a more decisive victory >> there is bill barr. we will come back another time. thanks, panel. we will see you next sunday. up next, a final word on the week ahead. ♪♪ ...so he scheduled with safelite in just a few clicks.
