9:01 am
seminars on the left and right. >> the president is accusing you of lying, are you? >> i am simply repeating what judge or church said to me. >> he attacked john mccain. one of the voices on security. >> chris: we will ask the panel whether the personal attacks are getting in the way of his agenda. a plus the power player of the week. time to present conflicts from turning into war. >> it is very practical. it is a set of skills, approaches, and frameworks. it is essential for our national security. >> chris: all right now now on "fox news sunday." hello again from fox news in washington. we begin with breaking news, north korea launched a missile overnight. meeting with president trump, called the test absolutely intolerable. and president trump
9:02 am
>> the united states of america stands behind japan. it is a great ally, 100%. >> chris: we will have more on that in a moment. we should also learn soon what president trump's next move is in the controversial travel ban. the president and top aides have talked about everything from rewriting the executive order to taking the case over the current order to the supreme court. mr. trump says he will release new security orders to keep america safe. joining me now live from the white house, the president senior advisor stephen miller, a key player in writing the original travel ban. stephen, let's start with the breaking news, what is the white house reaction to the north korean ballistic missile test, and is of the white house going to put that regime on notice as you did with iran?
9:03 am
>> last night what you saw was the president of the united states sending a powerful and unmistakable signal to north korea and the entire world as he stood shoulder to shoulder with the prime minister of japan and gave our steadfast and unwavering support of the alliance. and that will be lost on no one. >> chris: you say it is an unmistakable message, except for the fact that we are standing with japan, what is the message? >> we are going to reinforce and strengthen our vital alliances in the pacific region as our strategy to deter and prevent the increasing hostility that we have seen in recent years from the north korean regime. more broadly, we are inheriting a situation around the world that is deeply troubling. the situation in north korea, the situation in iraq, the situation in yemen, and the president is committed to a rebuilding of the armed forces of the united states that will send a signa
9:04 am
america's strength will not be tested. >> chris: let's turn to the big controversy over the travel ban. is the trump administration coming and you as a key player in it, are you rewriting the president's executive order of limiting the visitors and the refugees coming into this country? will that be released this week? >> right now we are considering and pursuing all options, including seeking a state with the supreme court, having an emergency hearing, or going to the trial report on the merits. they include as you mentioned, the possibility of new executive action designed to prevent terrorist in perpetration of our country. and i want to say something very clearly, this will be very disappointing to the people protesting the president and the people in congress like senator schumer who has attacked the president. the president's powers here
9:05 am
beyond question. the president has the authority under the ina section 1182f to suspend people into the country. and he has all seven engage in border control and those powers are substantial. they present the apex of the presidential authority. we are contemplating new and additional actions to ensure that the immigration is not a vehicle for admitting people into our country that are hostile to its nation and its values. >> chris: i want to follow up on that, stephen. you have been making this this weekend. to the courts have no place interfering with the president's constitutional powers over immigration. but i wanted to take you back to what the ninth circuit said in its ruling of upholding the state of the executive travel ban. your first of all is what you had to say this week. >> and unelected judge does not have theig
9:06 am
immigration laws and policies for the entire united states of america. >> chris: but the ninth circuit court disagreed. deference to the president's policies determinations with respect to immigration and national security, it is beyond question that the judiciary obtains authority to the constitutional challenges of action. stephen, the three judges say that you are flat wrong. >> no, they made a broad overreaching statement about the ability to check the executive power. they do not even address what i was talking about which was ina, the power of the president to exclude aliens in the interest. >> chris: but there is a long history of reviewing here. >> the long history of being overturned and overreaching, we do not have judicial supremacy in this country. we have three
9:07 am
of government. the ninth circuit cannot confer on to a international living in yemen, a constitutional right to enter our country. such a right to exist, that would mean every time we denied a visa to afford a national, they can sue and an american court for damages for lost benefits in terms of welfare and employment. that would be ludicrous. 80 million people visited this country through airports, land ports, seaports. of course the president has the authority to post moderate necessary and sensible restrictions including putting in place for new vetting procedures to protect the country. that's how we delegated exclusively by congress, , and adherence under the two powers of the constitution. this is a judicial violation of the judges proper roles in litigating disputes. we will fight it. we will make sure that we take action to keep from happening in the future what is happening in
9:08 am
we have had hundreds of individuals enter the country through the immigration system on visas, and they have done an enormous harm to the country from 9/11, sand bernadino, to the boston bombing. and on and on and on. >> chris: i want to pick up on that, and your criticism of the judges, because after judges and national -- initial order, he said i cannot believe a judge would put our country in such peril. if something happens, blame him and the court system. bad. but now, stephen, that judge is getting death threats. so the question is if something happens to him, should we blame president trump? >> this is one of the most ludicrous things that the media does, when anybody crazy in this country issued a death threat that they can blame a public official. that
9:09 am
never be done. the reality is -- >> chris: some people would say that's personally attacking a judge is reckless and irresponsible. in fact your own supreme court nominee, he called it disheartening and demoralizing. >> this is a profound misunderstanding of separate and equal branches. of course a branch can size another branch. it is ludicrous to say that they can criticize congress, and judges can criticize their president, but the president cannot criticize judges. he has had his comments as you know misinterpreted and missed understood. as we all know he has a profound credibility issues. >> chris: wait, on the question. first of all, the question of his saying that he found these remarks disheartening and
9:10 am
>> i don't think that he would say that you cannot criticize a judge. >> chris: no, he said it not only to richard blumenthal, but the republican. >> that is not what the statements, that is not what she said. you were not in the room, i was not in the room. we do know that senator blumenthal, and we all know the vietnam scandal. we know how he has a credibility problem. it is a serious problem. that should be the focus of the conversation. it is where the senator has a serious credibility issue. we are going all over the place. let's just be very clear and straightforward saying the following. the united states of america has a terrorism problem. we have had four cases of them plotting a tempting or even carrying out terrorist attacks. we have spent countless dollars a year, and yet
9:11 am
federal officers and investigators who do nothing but run around the country trying to stop terrorist attacks for no other reason because we make the mistake of letting people in who harbor hatred for the country. our immigration system should not be a vehicle for admitting people who have anything but love in their hearts for this nation in this constitution. >> chris: i want to ask you about how this all rolls out, because you and stephen bannon were reportedly the prime movers behind the rollout of this executive order before it had been fully vetted by all the key players of the administration or congressional leaders. and now it has been blocked in several courts. do you and stephen bannon take responsibility for all of the problems with the rollout? >> first of all, people are getting way too much credit to me and stephen bannon. he has no role whatsoever in drafting executive orders. this was drafted by congressional experts and
9:12 am
immigration. it was approved and effected through the homeland security council, the national security council, the department of justice legal counsel. key people at the departments and agencies read into it. >> chris: you agree that it has not gone smoothly? >> here is where you are wrong, chris. and i hate to say this, because i think you are fabulous. but we issued three executive orders that have improved the security of this country. on border security, interior security, and national security. most of those divisions remain in full, total, and complete affect. aspects of the order have been wrongly enjoined, an unprecedented step by the ninth circuit and the district judge to extend the rights of other citizens who do not live in our country. and even parts of that executive order still remainn
9:13 am
including the process putting in place the new vetting mechanism, and then the other policies. but something is going to come out of this. it will be very good. in the end, the powers of the president of the united states will be reformed, and the whole world will see clearly and unmistakably, and it is a message that i want the world to hear today. this country will protest its borders. it will protect its people, and we will make sure we have an immigration system that promotes wage growth, employment opportunities for our people, and promotes compassion for working-class citizens who want to live in safe, secure, upper mobile securities. >> chris: let me ask about protecting the border, because there has been ramped up immigration this week, hundreds of people in the country illegally, and some with criminal records that came in illegally have been detained. the president tweeted this morning, the crackdown on illegal immigrants is merely the keeping of my campaign promise. gang members, drug dealers, and others are being removed.
9:14 am
that this had been in the works for some period of time. the president seems to indicate that this is happening of his order, which is it? >> right now as a result of the president's order, greatly expanded and more vigorous immigration are taking place. it is true. if the operation cross-check is something that happens every year. but this year we have taken new and greater steps to remove criminal aliens from our communities. i had a phone call yesterday with someone who from dhs talking about immigration enforcement activity at 4:00 in the morning where a gang member was removed, a wife beater, somebody who was threatening public safety. and because they did not have the right kind of conviction, they were not considered a priority by the previous administration. because of president trump's actions, innocent people are now being kept out of harm's way. and we as a country spend too little time thinking about the effects of open borders on vulnerable
9:15 am
migrants communities, lawful migrants trying to get their start in this country. they are threatening with the scourge of cartel violence, the scourge of gangs, we are now removing them from the country. >> chris: i get your point. we are way over time. i have one more question. i want to ask you about the personal attacks that president trump engaged in this week. he dismissed the so-called judge who had abstained his order of judge robards, and had to say this about the appeals court. >> i listen to a bunch of stuff last night on television that was disgraceful. >> chris: when richard blumenthal said those supreme court nominee judge gorsuch found them disheartening, here is how president trump responded. >> his comments were missed represented. what you should do is ask senator blumenthal about his vietnam record that did not
9:16 am
day. >> and when senator john mccain armed services committee raised questions about the yemen rate, the president tweeted this. i'm going to put it on the screen. if senator mccain should not be talking about the success or failure of a mission to the media. only he and bolden's the enemy. he has been losing so long he does not know how to win anymore. look, i take your point that you are not a punching bag here. and the president in the white house, they take incoming should be able to fire back. but does this kind of personal attack help the president in building a coalition that he is going to need for the bold agenda that all of you want? >> thank you, chris. it is an important question. i'm glad to have a chance to answer it. >> chris: just briefly, sir. >> our position is that we are the ally of hard-working men and women all across this country, and president trump is their champion. that is the coalition. the coalition is millions and
9:17 am
patriotic citizens who just want a pay raise. they just want to go to school, just a safe community. and donald trump will never apologize for looking out for their interest and being their champion. >> chris: but does he need to insult john mccain in the process? >> he needs to protect the integrity and the honor and decency of the armed services. william ryan owens did not die for a failure. he died as a hero. he died in defense of his country. he died in defense of our values. in a successful mission that he has of the valuable intelligence. at the bottom line is that the president of the united states won 365 of the poll votes because of people who have had voices in washington, democrats, independents, republicans, and he will be their champion and their voice. >> chris: stephen, thank you for your time today.
9:18 am

reinstating the travel ban. to discuss at the president's executive order and other issues. it let's bring an senator stephen miller, the top democrat on the foreign's relation committee. welcome back to "fox news sunday." >> good to be with you, chris. >> chris: you just heard stephen miller on the travel ban, your reaction? >> i find his comments very concerning. we all want america to be safer. i can tell you that his executive order will make us less safe. it is not just my views. i've talked to leaders from around the world that tell us that it will be used as a recruitment for terrorist organizations i will put americans at greater risk traveling abroad. it adds to self radicalization. our concern about terrorism is real, but look at the numbers. if the numbers of self radicalization are much higher than people coming into our country. we need to have a smart policy. we already have extreme vetting for refugees, particularly. >> chris: i want to pick up on this, because you have
9:22 am
similar remarks, and you and five other democratic senators wrote to defense secretary james mattis this week. i want to put what you said on the screen. this executive order provides isis and other enemies with a propaganda coup of unimaginable proportions. honestly? do you really think that isis needs another tool to get to kill us? >> i was talking to the king of jordan last week. and he said, though, we have 650,000 refugees in our country. and they are integrated into our country. they are not the security threats. at the security threat is who could be recruited. how the palestinians are recruited towards terrorism. isis is on the run, but if we give them a message, we are losing territory, we are making progress. so there hope for their future is to recruit. and what america does when it's immigration policy give them a
9:23 am
recruiting message. >> chris: but senator, the new secretary of security, john f. kelly says that while the courts go through this long process, considering the president's order, these are his words, entirely possible that someone will come into this country and do us harm. here is an exchange that he had this week in a congressional committee hearing. >> but you do not have any proof at this point. >> not until they blow something up or go into a mall and kill people. if so, we will not know until then. >> chris: he is saying, the president is saying, stephen miller is saying while the courts, senators argue about well, this fine-tuning of executive order, we will not know until the boom. >> well, you do not know. we want to keep americans safe. there are risk factors. there are risk factors that it could be used as a recruitment here for someone with a self radicalization. and they could go out and cause people to be
9:24 am
if you look at what we have seen as far as the terrorist threats in america, it is not the refugees. it is not the people that are coming in who are regular process people. they are not a high threat to america. do we want to do better where we can? absolutely. >> chris: i want to turn the subject, u.s. officials now say that contrary to previous denials that the president's national security advisor retired, michael flynn did discuss u.s. sanctions with the russian ambassador before he took office in december at the very time that president obama was imposing new sanctions because of russia's role in interfering with the election. here is an exchange that i had before the inauguration with vice president mike pence. >> did michael flynn ever discussed lifting sanctions in those discussions? >> i talked to them yesterday. and the conversation that took place at that
9:25 am
any way related. they were not related to new u.s. sanctions, or the expulsion of diplomats. >> chris: despite that, they said that president trump still has full confidence in michael flynn as his national security advisor. question to you. >> i think what general flynn did with the vice president, misleading him or giving him the wrong information, that is not the type of person that you want to have around you giving you advice. so i think that he is very much a question with his credibility. we need to get to the bottom of this. but it gives more than just a general flynn, the relationship between russia and our elections is something that needs to be independently investigated. i would call for an independent investigation like we had a 9/11. we need to have an independent investigation, and general flynn's comments add to our concern about the relationship with russia. >> chris: one of the reasons that all of this has come out to because the
9:26 am
one of the intelligence agency is doing what they should be doing had intelligence on one of the conversations that the ambassador was having. i'm sure that they do it to our people in moscow, so they knew what was going on in this conversation. you as a top democrat on the foreign relations committee, should there be an investigation of what it is that michael flynn said? i guess a larger question, what is wrong? in about a month he was going to be the security advisor, what is wrong with him talking to the russian ambassador about what the policy was on sanctions? >> one president at a time. that president is conducting a major policy -- sanctions with russia's attack on the united states. that had to be clear. if somebody was trying to undermine that in a private conversation with the prime minister of russia, that is wrong. that is why we had it a couple of hundred years ago taking it illegal.
9:27 am
relationship? why did russia do what it did in our elections? they are continuing the act in the united states and western europe, we have to get to the bottom of this. what's russia is employing to try to bring down the democratic system of government. yes, there should be investigations in congress, and some are starting. there needs to be an independent investigation where people are dedicated full-time to figuring out what's russia is doing, why they did it, who was involved in the united states, and making sure that this never happens again. >> chris: let's look at where we stand with the trump cabinet to this point, and the statistics are interesting. so far seven of the cabinet nominees have been confirmed. at the same point in 2009, 12 numbers, the obama cabinets were in place. and in 2001, bush had his entire cabinets confirmed. a senator, isn't this blatant democratic obstruction? >> not at all. we cannot stop these nominee
9:28 am
we know that. >> chris: no, but you are doing everything you can to slow down. >> they have never been appointed to positions before. they are personal -- >> chris: some people would say that it is a positive. >> let's find out about it. when you have people who have been vetted, it is a lot easier for it to move because you have already gone through that information. with a person like betsy devos, we knew nothing about her commitments, i think it was important that we took as much time as possible. we can hold her accountable. now she has second of education. we are going to use our time to make sure that people understand the background of these individuals, the commitment to the agency that they are being appointed to. so that we can hold them accountable. yes, and in some cases we would hope that republicans can join us in questioning whether they are the best person. >> chris: back in 2013 when republicans delayed the confirmation of two members of president obama's second term cabinets coming here is what
9:29 am
this is a pattern of blocking president obama's confirmation votes on his key cabinet positions. senator , aren't you engaged in the practice that you criticize four years ago? >> i think my recollection was the republicans controlling the senate at that time, we were not scheduling these votes. we do not control the agenda. the republicans do. >> chris: yes, but you have ways of blocking it. >> no, we just take our time. we have time for debate. at the three hours that are given to us. we cannot block when it is brought to the floor. we cannot block when the votes to take place. that would be the republican leader deciding. all we can do is use the time that is allotted to us to make our points. that is what we are doing. we are not blocking the appointments. we scheduled the earliest possible date is for hearings and our committees. i am the ranking democrats on the cabinet -- >> chris: but you boycott it so they they do not have a vote. when we bring up one more question, the
9:30 am
gorsuch to the supreme court's preview say that he must be in the judicial mainstream, i understand that he is clearly more conservative than you are. president trump is a more conservative president and president obama. is there anything in his record that would -- besides the fact that he is conservative, that he is not in the judicial mainstream. >> i am just starting to look at his back room. i am concerned if you will represent individual constitutional rights or if he is more concerned about business constitutional rights. >> chris: yes, but that is business mainstream. >> give me a chance to meet with him. i have not met with him yet. but chris, i want to tell you, this is a backdrop to the republican leadership in the senate that denied president obama for ten months is no meaning. we want to make sure that we get a fair process. and some of us are concerned whether the republican leadership will allow us to have a fair process in the united states senate. as you said earlier on the show, we have a
9:31 am
shown disrespect for the judicial branch of government. we need to make sure that we have an independent judiciary. >> chris: thank you for coming in, it's always good to talk to you. bringing our send a group to discuss what president trump may do next to restrict people coming into the u.s. with countries with a history of terrorism. new allegations that mr. trumps a advisor michael flynn discussed sanctions with the russian administrator despite his heated denials. ♪ ♪

9:36 am
>> the ninth circuit made a complete legal mismatch of the doctrine of standing. talking about the right of individuals outside of the country that are not u.s. citizens to enter the country. that being said, the rollout of the executive order was not the finest hour for the administration. i believe that they will withdraw the order. they will write in more narrowly tailored order that will probably allay the concerns of most. but some of the language of the ninth circuit opinion might not even be enough for them, but a loose standing to continue with the case. i would be very surprised if they wanted to take a gamble going back to the district court, then going again to the ninth circuit, then it going again to the supreme court's. this has been a major distraction. if i was operating comes over there, i would have a different approach. you have to repeal and replace obamacare. you have to do tech so form, you have to do the things you were talking about. if there is some reasoning and what they are saying, but the way that things
9:37 am
when john f. kelly of homeland security says that he wishes he had done it a little bit differently. in my view that is a towel. it is okay. they can redo this. but they have to learn. you are running into a buzz saw of the democratic resistance in the ninth circuit, probably will distracted for a while. >> chris: julie, president trump does not like to lose, he said a major setback by the ruling of the ninth circuit court, this controversy over the travel ban has obviously, and i think you can see from thl of the coverage of this week, an enormous amount of time and energy, laura points out, a big agenda out there. do you get any sense of how unhappy the president is? >> he has told people privately that he does not think the rollouts went well. if despite of what he said publicly about the strength coming at what he feels is the national security interest of the country. if you talk to trump supporters, people who talk to them, yes, they believe that this is part
9:38 am
they are more focused on obamacare. they are more focused on jobs and the economy. trump knows that. he is going to want to shift the focus to those issues, and frankly they will be even more difficult to implement then what we have seen on the executive order. >> chris: michael, donald trump came in as a disruptor. it cannot be good when in his first major initiative, and he has had some orders or speeches, but this is the first major policy initiative where the disruptor gets stopped in his tracks by the federal courts. whether rightly or wrongly, it does not add to the momentum of shaking up the system. >> that may be true, but the courts are wrong and this is his hands. this is an instant of the president as his power. he has statutory power given to them by congress. he has constitutional power. and we want him running a national security. what do these judges in san francisco have from classified briefings that they have gotten about the national security threats?
9:39 am
>> chris: the supreme court, not saying it is right or wrong, but in the case they slap down president bush's ability to handle the detainees at guantanamo. >> yes, sure, the courts have it right, but when it comes to immigration policy, and stephen miller said that he has had the ability whenever he wants to restrict people coming into this country as he sees necessary. >> i think it is urgent for the national security of the united states. i think he is probably going to do something to make sure that there are security measures put in place. it is urgent for the national security to reaffirm the executive branch. at the executive branch that holds the meetings to think about trade up. it is the executive branch that does hold accountable at the polls. not the judiciary. it is urgent for the national security of the united states that we reaffirm the executives at the power. >> what if the court actually gets the power a
9:40 am
precedent on the books that looking at the separation of powers because maybe we rushed and before we had an attorney general? then you will have precedent on the books that is going to be a big deal around the executive. >> the american people losing confidence in our institutions -- coke we need support. >> it is urgent that we reaffirm the question of national security. >> i think that they probably would not have done the spread of the supreme court tries to predict what anthony kennedy is going to do, good luck. >> chris: juan? >> i do not think they need to be demeaned here, i think there is an argument, and specifically an argument that touches on the role. i think the green card, it was not clear to the officials at the time that people with green cards will be allowed back in the country. secondly the suggestion that they do not have the right to intervene, not only do we have a case with president bush, but president obama where the courts in texas said that with regards to immigration with the courts to have
9:41 am
potential damage to private interests. >> they do not have the right to intervene. i said that they got the case exactly wrong. in their decision they did not cite the statute that stephen miller was talking about earlie earlier. it says that the president of the united states has a right to restrict pretty >> but the courts have the right to review. they have a right to intervene on the subject. it is not the case, yes, the president has the prerogative with regard to immigration, but it is not beyond dispute. >> chris: i want to get him to one more thing, the case of the national security advisor, michael flynn. he denies sean spicer based on his assurances, vice president pence sitting at this table talk to the russian ambassador about sanctions, and it now turns out from intelligence that he did talk about it. is he in trouble? >> i think that this week will be clarifying on whether he is in trouble. yo
9:42 am
times this story has changed. first it was the dates of the calls that changed. second it was the number of times that he spoke to the russian ambassador. now we are told that the content has changed. and the fact that the vice president went to michael flynn. and this is backed up, went there and asked what happened in those calls and was told a story that may not be true. it is hard to see how a national security advisor can continue in that role if they are giving incorrect information to the vice president of the united states. >> chris: interestingly enough, plain and the vice president met twice on friday. so he knows that he is in trouble with the vice president. >> and given his history at the pentagon when he was running intelligence, he knows that there are plenty of systems in place and the agencies to actually capture content of these types of calls. >> chris: it does exist somewhere. anyway -- >> either he lied to them, or they are lying to him. but in either case somebody is covering up sometng

trying to go, and the ceo said that she could go on facebook and grandstand about how much she did not want ivanka trump there. she is trying to fly across the country with her family. a senior member of the trump white house was in a shopping store getting dresses with her bridesmaids, and she was attacked in the shopping store. there is a breakdown. nobody is asking schumer, do you have the courage to stand up to these crazy people on the left who are unreasonably attacking people. nobody is asking nancy pelosi these questions. i think we want to talk about donald trump tweets, we want to talk about kellyanne conway, all of the stuff. we should talk about the lack of respect and decorum that the left has paid to that starts with elizabeth warren, chuck schumer, nancy pelosi coming on the rest of them. >> chris: how do you plead? >> i did not listen and wonder, because to me we are the start. a lot of it has to start with donald trump. >> he is the counterpunch are. do you think thana
9:49 am
that ivanka trump has been treated the last few months? >> i don't want any bad behavior, but elizabeth warren, the way that you describe her as she is a threat to the nation. she is not. she was reading from a letter on the floor. and king had been critical of jeff sessions, into the attorney general, but is that a reason to state that elizabeth warren is not allowed to speak. in fact, picking up on chris's point, because i have had the same perception that senator mcconnell is a strategic, smart player. and inside player in the game. so what was the point? i looks to me like he all of the sudden elevated elizabeth warren and her comments. >> here's the threat to the nation, the stability in the country as a threat to the nation. i think it is important for people like you to start standing up and demanding that elizabeth warren and nancy pelosi, chuck schumer, they spent all of this time and talking about donald trump read everything that he does is criticize. it is important to
9:50 am
ask nancy pelosi coming on chuck schumer whether the breakdown of decorum -- >> you can pretend like the lack of civility has started and since the november election. if you look at things that were said about president obama and president bush during the height of the iraq war, we have been dealing with this for years. >> but in this amount of time we talk about donald trump, and no time asking elizabeth warren, chuck schumer, others to push back. >> the f protesters, they call themselves protesters, many of them are criminals. they are denying a government official the ability to do government business at a public school. it talking about secretary of education betsy devos. they complain that she hates public schools. she is going to kill all public schools. then she goes to a public school and the most vicious, horrible things are said about her, preventing her from actually entering the school at some point. so i think that there is a
9:51 am
point to be made that the resistance movement that has been fueled by many in congress who are encouraging it, even former president obama is heartened by the by the enthusiasm. enthusiasm, protest, fine. what we have been seeing at berkeley, and even at this betsy devos thing, it gets scary, there is a push to bring this powder keg moment where at some points force will be used to keep people safe. you see, police brutality, trump has a police state. the volume of pitches being brought up because they lost, they are bitter about it, and they have nothing to do except stop other people from speaking. the resistance is fine, but peaceful protests are fine. >> so when he speaks about a so-called judge coming you don't think that is demeaning, threatening, scary about our judiciary? when the president -- >> like that has never happened before. >> but to look at the fountain here, you want to point out a
9:52 am
source. and he goes after the judiciary. that scares people. he goes after the acting attorney in general. he goes after a judge in trump university, suggesting that he is incompetent because he has mexican heritage. >> people are still mad about that. i get that. he is now the president of the united states. these things will go through the legal channels, debating the substance of the issues. the debate is lacking. we are talking about ivanka trump's shoe line, now we are talking about -- >> the resistance with kellyanne conway coming on fox and saying go by ivanka trump's, that is not right. people have a reaction. >> they lose on trade. if they lose on immigration. if they lose on fighting all of these wars in the middle east. >> part of the problem is that every time you try to get into the substance with somebody covering the white house, you get pulled off
9:53 am
from the president which then gets reinforced in the briefing room, the white house has an interest and focusing on that. >> chris: we are being pulled aside by our clock. thank you, panel. we will see you sunday. up next, the power player of the week, one woman leading an effort to bring peace to hot spots around the s world. g , but you already knew that. it's also great for finding the perfect used car. you'll see what a fair price is, and you can connect with a truecar certified dealer. so, no matter what you're looking for... there it is. this is how buying a used car should be. this is truecar. ♪ do you have trouble falling asleep or wake up with a sore neck or headache? then it's time you discovered mypillow. >> hello, i'm mike lindell,
