Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Division lead with a clenched fist. A closed hand a hard heart to demonize your Ponant spew hatred. They don't need me, they'd got President Donald Trump. Our country. Democratic public is independence different bat, not back to a path that never was, but your future fulfills our trooper tential as a country. Let's hear from some of those democratic rivals. Now, I former Colorado governor John Hickenlooper governor, thank you for joining us this morning about you just heard from vice president Biden, there, he, he's pitched the core of his pitch, so far as bringing the country together calming things down. He says he can build bridges to Republicans to get things done now. That's exactly will you've been focusing on as well. Why can you do it better than Joe Biden? Well, you know, I'm running for president because Donald Trump has been fuelling this national crisis of division and taking country backwards. And the answer is not socialism in Colorado, we were able to bring business and nonprofit together Democrats, Republicans do get almost universal healthcare covers to become the number one comedy in America and to beat the NRA with tough gun laws. I've, I've been a an entrepreneur and gover and most of my adult life. I've been able to bring people together again and again and get tough progressive things done. The people said, we couldn't do, I think it's time to replace the nonsense in Washington with some common sense. You say the answer is not socialism obviously peers to be a reference to Bernie Sanders. But are you confident that this consensus building exactly what Democrats are looking for a lot of the most energized voices in the party are saying that it's time for being bold, even radical solutions. Well, but you spend my whole life as I. Said bringing people together and getting big progressive things done where the Colorado almost a number one. Well, it is the number one Connie in the country, we've achieved almost universal healthcare coverage and we beat the NRA with tough tough gun laws. I think the real challenge is how do we get that nonsense? That's taken over Washington and replace it with commonsense. That's the slogan, you've hit on. And I know you more you're going to be talking about foreign policy, laying your foreign policy vision as well in your speech council on foreign relations and part of that speech that we've seen you call out fellow Democrats. Some Democrats recoiling from pass American foreign policy stakes by looking to withdraw from our global leadership role. I refuse to join their retreat referring to there. Well, you know, I mean, let's frame, it that Donald trunks, isolationist and reckless farm policy has actually made our country less safe as tariff wars heard our Konomi, and Trump and some in my own party who. Well, I don't want to name names, but there, but they have withdrawn from they would have the United States withdrawal from global engagement, and that makes us less safe. The only way to full security is through constant engagement, and by reviving US leadership. We actually make our, our countries safer, but we also make it more prosperous. You say you don't want to name names, but you're running for president against twenty two other Democrats right now are any of those twenty to any of those call for their treat your calling out right there. Almost all the other Democrats, not all, but many of the other Democrats feel that we should back away from fair and open trade. And I believe that only through, you know, constant gauge -ment and building up that trailer, we're going to get to full security, and I think, as we revive leadership, we're able to not only make our country safer. But as I said, we're going to be able to be more prosperous at the same time when it comes to foreign policy, vice-president Biden. Tasr years of experience in the Senate, and vice president our next two guests. Both served in the military what qualifies you to be commander and chief well in Colorado, I set up a national cyber security center in Colorado Springs, worked on the in-state, deployment of the national guard or closely with our military leadership around the operations of our six military bases, including NORAD, I've gone out on over a dozen economic development trips of built relationships with leaders around the world, what places like Israel. We've had a partnership that addresses terrorism water conservation cyber security. I mean, there's a law of a portfolio their places where I've been engaging in active affairs, your way back in the pack right now about one percent in the George two percent, depending on the poll. You're right. If some of the some to someone that that's true. But in order to get any traction, you're gonna have to start taking on these other candidates, aren't you? I think little by little, but again the focus, I'm running because this country is a national crisis of division. And I looked by whole life. I've been able to bring people together and get stuff done. I think I'm the one candidate when you look at the long record of what they've gotten done I can bring. I really believe I can bring some common sense, where right now in Washington. You see nothing but nonsense, a lot of Democrats concerned, not only about the White House, but also trying to get the Senate back. And I know the Chuck Schumer the Senate Democratic leaders talked to you in the past about maybe forgoing, the presidential race and taking on Cory Gardner for the Senate any chance you're gonna do that if you're presidential campaign doesn't take off. Well, I think I'd be. The difficult Canada's a Senator been my whole life putting teams together, both as an entrepreneur, the private sector, but also as mayor and as a governor. And by building those teams we've been able to, to bring people together and do the big progressive things that people said couldn't be done. And that's the only way we're gonna find, you know, only way we're going to be able to bring some some common sense to Washington. Hickenlooper? Thanks for joining us this morning. You bet. Thank you. We're gonna be right back after this ABC stations. Hi, I'm Jay drumming. Thumping.
