last year, there was a very real concern that perhaps donald trump was not as conservative as he was presenting himself to be a history of being on the last and being liberal, in this first month, whatever you make of what donald trump has done, he has proven himself to be quite conservative and put forth a very conservative agenda that would undoubtedly excite a base that you would find as comp, >> there were b o os that came out last year, mention his name this year, you get cheers. of all of the corporate and business success, donald trump had over his career, perhaps his biggest take over ever so far has been the take over, what we saw this year is 180 degrees from what we saw just last year at this time. pretty remarkable. >> looking ahead to tuesday, i think it's interesting the wld
8:41 am
remarks will speak of a renewal of the american spirit. if you contrast that. many people thought was a quite a dark telling of what's going on. do you think the it shifted a month later? is that a reaction to maybe some of the negative push-back to what was said on inauguration day >> i think that if your a republican you understood what he was saying if you were a vote you understood what he was saying, he's looking to bring people back to work. and if you see him in some of the meetings inside of the white house, he's had meetings with business leaders talking about investment in the united states. going into 18 and 20, he'll have to achieved opening of factories and increasing the economy. markets surging of late. i think tax reform is a issue obviously for republicans and that's something of his agenda, he got paul ryan and folks >> ian
8:42 am
another issue. is that national security defense homeland security something that you specialize in from your seat on tuesday night, what do you want to hear from this president in regards to what he says needs to be done about military and is our military and our national security as in bad a shape as the president continually likes to say it is >> sequestration was an issue that really took hold in the 2009 and 2014 time period under obama and really led the defense department and homeland security another agencies in terms of spending and recap recapitulation. it went down when the priority was healthcare like it was during the obama administration, president trump will focus on spending and increasing military and talking about presence overseas, with homeland security immigration has been a
8:43 am
but there's cyber security, transportation, and other, you know, type issues that happen at the department, i think we're going to go see a lot of different things, general madison mattis are off to a pretty good start in terms of running the agencies >> let's talk about something that just broke on activity. i think this was saturday night. president trump he's breaking with decades of transition skipping the annual white house correspondence dinner. the decision comes just after his remarks with cpac where he again called fake news the enemy of the people. take a listen. >> i want you all to know that we're fighting the fake news. two days ago, i called fake news the enemy of the people and they are.
8:44 am
they are the enemy of the people. they have no sources. they just make them up >> that's a recap of something we've heard from the president before. when i listened to that, seems to me the president on friday tried to do something different. he tried to make the argument away do i say the word fake news. when he says they referring to fake news, president might want to take another look at that and say it. he tried to make the argument on friday. listen, it's not all of the media. it's not all of the press again. i'm against stories that in particular, and we've seen some of them in the "new york times" in particular, that rely solely on unnamed sources. if the president does want to make a point about particular items that
8:45 am
uncorroborated bright. how could he go to the white house correspondence dinner? after all that has been said and all that has happened over the past five weeks, he would be the height of hip patco si. people will give him criticism for that, people will not like him. parties will get cancelled. outside of the beltway. that plays pretty good. donald trump said one thing consistently and he said i'm not going to be part of washington and a big part of what goes on is that dinner, even though it's a great organization that raises lots of money, the president can't go to the dinner if he wants to really kind of be held to the fire on the statements he's been making against the media. >> i also look back though, it's very consistent with the trump that we know. donald trump didn't show up when it looked like he was going to do well. walked
8:46 am
he didn't show up at that fox news debate in iowa after all that happened. this is very characteristic trump to not show up when he feels that the reception isn't going to be even warm and fuzzy. he would never walk into this room for all of the reasons that tom mentioned and the fact that this is not a warm fuzzy crowd. >> well, i think that you can say a lot of things about donald trump but he's 110% authentic. we know exactly what's on his mind. we never had a president in our lifetime and maybe not after that we know -- you may not always like what he says but you know exactly what's going on, things like the washington correspondence dinner, there's a lot inside that you guys have mentioned flipping over the tables is to get here and kind of do things a little bit differently that's been down in the past >> what you said brings me back to our first topic. maybe we'll never
8:47 am
again. perez responded to what donald trump said about him winning the dnc, he said i'm going to be your worse nightmare and i thought how trumpesque of him to engage on that level of and i think both politicians see a lot of people respond to those 140 character messages to the public. >> what's no advice, in cpac when i was there, we had rare, appearance by steve bannon. steve bannon is not somebody that goes out and make as lot of public appearances. anybody surprised by this news about the white house correspondence dinner is not paying attention. steve bannon said it's going to get worse. if you don't like the relationship with the press right now, it's going to get worse and it's going to get worse every single day moving forward, because they do view the media as the
8:48 am
the media needs to stop complaining all we have to do is go back and do our jobs and that will take care of things. their job is to do their job, the media is to do media's job and both sides should just get to work. we thank you so much for joining us today. >> thank you for join us. >> he runs play action strategies here in dc. we'll be looking forward to you take on the speech on tuesday night as well. will you be watching >> absolutely looking forward. on the hill coming right back but first here's chris wallace with a respective of fox news sunday >> this week on fox news sunday, president trump prepare as prime time address to congress, where he'll lay out his legislature agenda. we'll discuss the president's plan with former campaign manager corey lewandowski. then ask two leading governors, mcauliffe and scott walker how

8:51 am
when the powerful use their position you to bully others we all lose. this brings me to the press. we need the principled press to
8:52 am
them on the carpet for every outrage. >> because i love this country, i'm horrified by its black men measures and this immigrant ban is a blemish and unamerican. >> we saw it is the go ahead end globes and sag awards. will the oscars get political? i think so. a new southern reveals a whooping 66% of trump supporters turn off award shows when speeches get political. joining us is stan. are you surprised by those results? clinton supporters some of them turn off the tv but not 94ly as many >> we've seen a bunch and it's disappointing when you think about it the folks in hollywood. the actors worship a
8:53 am
idle. we're traditional american values, faith, freedom, and that's the america i wish these actors and actresses will talk more about >> the soar losers is hollywood, not the people turning off the tv >> yes. >> who don't walk away with an oscar too. >> what's the problem with somebody who has access to a microphone that's going to be broadcast around the planet to using that time to express what is probably for somebody in a couple of these people who we'll never hear from again, a once in a lifetime to opportunity to get something off their chest. >> most of us enjoy entertainment because we get away from it all. you know, we have a little bit of escapism. we have troubles and technologist of our daily lives and we want to have fun want to be entertained and these folks actually spoil it and i think it's going to come back and bite them. i think it's going to make their
8:54 am
i think they should be -- they should be wise and stay away from the politics. >> it is interesting, we have this conversation i remember having it with tom before the inauguration, and certain celebrities and performers pulling out of performing at an inauguration. but i would argue that it is a difficult line to cross, because you are there to provide entertainment, politics is and i'm present part of the conversation at least today, you don't want to not participate. you want to show that you care about america and whatever that view is. isn't that a good thing? >> well, it's a good thing, if they keep the private -- for example, gary sin knees, clint eastwood. they have political views >> didn't eastwood do the republican chair thing at the republican national convention >> at the convention, no oscars >> your point is the menu not the
8:55 am
>> that's exactly right >> can we guarantee from this you're not going to be watching. >> i probably won't be watching. depends what my wife says we'll be doing. >> i can relate to that. thank you for joining us. >> pleasure. >> we'll be right back. z29kuz zstz y29kuy ysty
