Our chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta. Joining US JIM. A grim new death toll and frightening new projections but the president and his team at least some members of his team don't necessarily believe all the numbers that's right well.

Dr Anthony Found. She who said deaths are likely being undercounted as some residents and hard hit New York died at home and we're never counted as cove in one thousand nine fatalities so direct.

New York's number of dead was too high last month. I see this morning. Where New York edit three thousand deaths because they died and then now saying rather than it was a heart attack? They're saying it was a heart attack caused by this trump allies on Fox News zeroed in on found she. As an obstacle to reopening the country blasting the doctors cautious approach to the pandemic.

"chief white house correspondent" Discussed on KMJ NOW
"David Brooks columnist for The New York Times he Michelle center but of course funding for PBS newshour Casey hunt NBC news Capitol Hill correspondent Peter Baker the chief White House correspondent for The New York Times I feel like this morning Peter I'm we heard a little bit if you read between the lines of doctor fetching in the governors of of this of the federal government is leaning in but perhaps not as much as they would like to because on one hand they're making the case that we need it we're not doing enough and on the other hand the not ready to call for more action right is standing here national say they've just got the FDA approval yesterday when when hearing about that from administration if there's a mass general one of the leading hospitals in this country I thought it was interesting moments this week came when doctors found she was on the hill and was asked by congresspeople you know it's gonna get worse I guess is gonna get worse what about things like NBA games says yes things like NBA games should be shut down boom when twenty four hours fall sports that down right there they are craving for direction they're craving for Washington to tell them what was supposed to do at this point and I'm not hearing for the present the pressure is kind of a bystander as school superintendents and sports commissioners and governors and mayors around the country making these individual decisions to shut down American life and the president hasn't given that kind of firm direction guidance they're looking for I'm curious I know I think I heard but Casey did you hear doctor Fauci recommend closing down bars and restaurants it seemed like he wasn't willing to say quite say that but it's kind of implied if if it were me and I owned a bar restaurant I listen to that interview I think this is probably the best idea this probably be the best plan and to pick up on Peter's point I mean this is something I think we are hearing from the community I mean I am hearing it from my friends you know who are looking to us in the media for guidance about what to do I mean the idea that Americans feel like they know that this is something that they need to be worried about the need to be taking action in their own lives even if they feel concerned they have no idea what to do the latter but the lack of clarity is a serious problem you know David Brooks I want to and this was after the Wednesday address no Rothman in commentary wrote there's no excuse for the kind of carelessness in a prepared address to the nation must last one given admit a merchant see circumstances the cumulative effect of these errors and compromised palliative measures was to leave the nation less confident than it was before trump spoke the president might have been better off keeping quiet but the the point is it does seem as if that lack of confidence can you start to see it spreading with with different people on how to deal with this crisis we see with every federal official none of them can get them from president trump so they ought to hang back I had a friend somebody I care about deeply call me last night saying he'd a fever and I had no idea what to tell my take Motrin go to Netflix it was it was very unnerving and then your next instinct is I'm gonna drive up and see him but I can't do that either and so this goes against human nature that we can really care about our loved ones and I think if it does flow from the top and we we have a president who doesn't feel the emotions of other people and therefore he can't read the countries six months ago we can't say well people are really hurting out there people are afraid of their I've gotta act of that act he lacks that sense and so he he's not releasing the country he's reading what people think about him which is all he sees and therefore all these reactions are late and then you make sure it's just a run on the last two weeks teclas we're finding very little problem very little problem now you treat this like a flu it's going to disappear one day it's like a miracle it will disappear this is the new hoax.

S. government made a couple of years preceding this crisis John Bolton the former national security adviser had disbanded a unit within the White House that was set up to prepare for this kind of thing back in twenty eighteen so when this came there was no immediate clear leadership as to who should be in charge you do have a top health officials who have been involved in other responses health and Human Services secretary Alex ease our was in the bush administration during the sars outbreak eight Anthony fast yet the NIH has been involved in several outbreaks of for decades but there was a lack of leadership at the beginning and a lot of that came because there was the disbanding of that unit within the White House and the pandemic preparedness people whose sole job was to Perth prepare for an event like this and cuts to the CDC that did global monitoring to to detect outbreaks before they spread out of control yes I mean do officials who are there feel like they can speak out and tell the truth to the American people or do they have to go through vice president Mike pence I think there's still a lot of confusion with all the events of this week and that change in leadership we do know from our reporting that now all communications regarding the outbreak in the message to the public do you need to be routed through the vice president's office some people say it's just to make sure the administration has a coordinated message because on Tuesday we saw conflicting and messages that were sort of overlapping and conflicting with one another but it still remains unclear whether the scientists and top health officials are going to be able to speak freely or if the administration wants to take a different posture because of the way the markets have reacted

Trump says Roger Stone has 'very good chance of exoneration' hours after sentencing
"Get some more and larger stones set and see our senior justice. Evan Perez is here our crime and justice. Chiba Polka. Pez is also working the story for Evan. You're inside the courtroom when you heard Judge Amy. Berman Jackson read out her decision. It was a dramatic moment. It was it was over an hour where she was essentially going through methodically. The aspects of this case including some of the arguments made by Roger Stone by the president and some of his allies that Roger Stone was being targeted for some For for his First Amendment right to stand up for president trump that he was essentially being targeted for being a political trickster. She says none of those things are true. I'll read you just a part of her remarks during the sentencing. Today she says quote stone wasn't obstructing not some secret anti-trump Cabal but he lied to Congress. You'll remember that. He was convicted of lying to Congress during testimony to the House. A House of Representatives as well as witness tampering threatening one of the witnesses in this in this case and so she took all of this on. She talked a little bit about some of his Some of his emails some of the threats that he made to Randy critical one of his associates And during that time well if we were all watching Roger Stone and he and he behaved himself mostly in court but during that time as she read some of his obscene emails. You can see him turnaround smirk and look at their two rows of his followers inside the courtroom today She also took to con the issue of of the politics. That are play in this case. she says quote he was Roger. Stone says he was not prosecuted as some have claimed for standing up for the president he was prosecuted for covering up for the president. One of the things we were watching today to wolf was the prosecution. John Crabs stood up today and essentially walked back to the original sentencing memo the recommendation that was made for seventy two seven seven to nine years From the prosecution team which resigned which quit the case in the middle of controversy over over President Trump's interference in his and the prosecutors the prosecutors stood up and he said he apologized for all the drama that happened in the past week wolf and he said that the original sentencing memo was essentially submitted. In good faith it was exactly according to Justice Department policy and it was within the guidelines that are established is interesting because we know the president. He clearly tried to influence the outcome of this trial from the very beginning. And the judge Amy Berman Jackson. She addressed that specifically. She did and it's not just the outcome of this trial. Let's the entire the entire Muller investigation where you see. The president has has inserted himself tweeting. It's talking about it at campaign rallies publicly talking about and the judge really today. That's what some of this was about. She wanted to address some of the influence and also the attempted influence and also the prosecutors who now have taken over this case day to said that the Department of Justice is. There's no political interference you know we're here to be fair and the judges continued. I mean we saw her going. After Roger Stone we saw her in some ways going after the president and then taking on the whole the political drama surrounding this case and what she said and this judge docs and she said the dismay and disgust at any attempt to interfere with the efforts of prosecutors and members of the JUDICIARY TO FULFIL. Their duty should transcend. Party this is a big moment in the sentencing. This was the overall I should say theme. I felt throughout her sensing proceeding was a larger message. Here because judiciary is under attack and this was a moment in time for the judge to defend the judiciary defend other judges and defend the system. Which is really under attack right continues to be under attack by the president. Today he railed against what's going on in the problem. Pardon you certainly. Did our guys stick around Evan and Shimon reporting for now. Let's go to the White House. Our chief White House correspondent Jim. Acosta is also working the story for a strip. The president was quick to speak out about Roger Stone's sentencing. That's right well. The president responded to speculation that he is about to pardon Roger Stone. The president suggested he will wait and see how the appeals process plays out for his former advisor saying he hopes stone is exonerated and while the president didn't offer stone at immediate. Pardon he didn't exactly close the door on that possibility either. President trump threw his support behind his convicted former adviser. Roger Stone but stopped short of offering a pardon to the dirty trickster just hours after he was sentenced in federal court. I'm not GONNA do anything. In terms of the great powers bestowed upon a president of the United States. I want the process to play out. I think that's the best thing to do. Because I'd love to see Roger Exonerated and I'd love to see it happen because I personally think. He was treated very unfairly and an event honoring rehabilitated prisoners. In Las Vegas. The president ripped into the jury forewoman at the stone trial accusing her of being an anti-trump activist that was in response to her facebook. Post defending the prosecutors in the stone case so if this woman was tainted I hope the judge will find that you was tainted. And if she isn't tainted that will be fine to now. You would know about a bad jury. Anybody here know about that now. The president question. How could be sentenced to forty months in prison in part for lying to Congress but MR trump unleashed a flat out falsehood of his own when he said stone was not involved with this campaign in Twenty fifteen? The trump campaign said it fired stone. Roger was never involved in the trump campaign for president. He wasn't involved early on long before he announced he may have done a little consulting work or something but he was not involved when I ran for president. And he's a person who again he knows. A lot of people having to do with politics. Stone is now part of a growing group of trump associates sentenced or awaiting prison sentences. Democrats worried the president is floating the idea of parts to try to keep those associates quiet while I think that he's dangled the pardon Often with Mrs with regard to Mr Stone and Mr Flynn in part to In my opinion to signal to them that if they stay on the team that they don't reveal further information that they might possess about the president that they'll be taken care of the judge overseeing stones trial took a jab at Mr Trump at one point sang at the former trump campaign adviser sentencing that he was prosecuted for covering up for the president. Mr Trump had been teasing the possibility of a stone. Pardon tweeting video of Fox host calling for leniency. The whole thing is enough to shake your faith in our justice system. Unfortunately president trump could end this tragedy travesty in an instant with pardon and there are indications tonight that he will do that. Trump allies are also reminding the president he has the power to pardon stone with GOP. Senator Lindsey Graham tweeting under our system of justice. President trump has all the legal authority in the world to review this case and terms of commuting the sentence or partying Mr Stone for the underlying offense as the attacks on the four women in the stone. Trial a fellow juror. In the case said the president and the Attorney General are doing damage to the Justice System. Big Cast doubt on the the bedrock of the equal administration of Justice. That is just so so important to our country I think he damages our democracy by attacking this way and I wish he would stop now as for a pardon for Roger. Stone trump

That Killed Qasim Sulejmani last week in recent days he was planning new attacks on American targets but we stopped him but the the White House still hasn't revealed to the American public any evidence Sulejmani presented an imminent threat today. The president's national security team gave closed door or classified briefings to Congress. Democrats left thoroughly unconvinced and one of the harshest reviews came from a Republican senator. Mike Lee of Utah Utah. Probably the worst briefing of seen at least on a military issue in the nine years I've served in the United States Senate one of the messages we receive from the briefers. I was do not debate. Do not discuss the issue of the appropriateness of further Miller military intervention against Iran. And then if you do you'll be emboldening. Iran it's un-american. It's unconstitutional and it's wrong. Words from a Republican senator late today Giancarl live at the White House and John Senator. Mike Lee says he's so angry that will now support a measure to limit the president's ability to wage war in Iran. Both the House and the Senate are are soon be expected as soon vote on resolutions that would limit the president's ability to take military action on Iran without first getting congressional approval. It's unclear whether that would pass in the Republican controlled Senate and of course even if it passed both chambers David it would almost certainly be vetoed by the president. Already giancarl with us from the White House again tonight John on thank you heard. President trump saying we are ready to embrace peace when it comes to Iran but how the Iranians respond. ABC's chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz. She's bed in Tehran for days. Now and Martha with us live again tonight. And what are you hearing underground Martha Well David Tonight. The threat of all out war here certainly seems over for now. The Foreign Foreign Minister tweeting that Iran has concluded proportionate measures with its retaliatory strikes adding that Iran does not seek escalation or war but they are a long way from any sort of negotiations as president trump suggested they simply don't trust him and there is still fiery rhetoric coming from officials here on live TV today. Iran's supreme leader calling the Iranian missile strike a slap in the face delivered to America and calling calling for all US troops to get out of the Mideast. So David a heat may be turned way down this standoff with Iran is far from over David Martha Raddatz in Tehran. Hey Ron Martha thank

"Welcome to words matter with Katie Barlow and Joe Lockhart. Welcome to words matter. I'm Katie Barlow. Our goal is to promote objective reality. As a wise, man, once said, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, not their own fax words have power and words have consequences. Joe and I are honored to be joined today by award winning author and chief White House correspondent for the New York Times. Peter Baker Peter is covered four presidents, as a reporter, President Trump and Obama for the New York Times, and George W Bush, and Bill Clinton for the Washington Post, he is also the author of five books, including Obama, the call of history, days of fire Bush and Cheney in the White House and inside the impeachment and trial of William Jefferson Clinton, Peter Baker, welcome to words matter extra for sure. Joe since you and Peter have history together. The White House press room will let you lead off today is so long turn the tables on here. This is this is going to be hard this bad. I wanna talk about your book, you wrote if not the but one of the most definitive books on the Obama presidency in the upside down world of Donald Trump, he had to go back at it and. Kind of writing new version of it based on what happened after you know, in the last year. I'm most interested in both contemporaneous. We and then looking back how they handled Russia, and how they handled the election. And I think interference and meddling. He's talking about words, mattering, if we'd called it, something more sinister. Yeah. The beginning. I think that's this might have turned out different way. But let's call it interference right? Yeah. No, that's look. That's the thing about presents. Right. They look different year after they leave office in two years, and five years, ten years, and we're constantly reevaluating them President Clinton your president. Look different in two thousand one he look different two thousand eight two thousand sixteen every time you know they were still political arena, but we were reevaluating his presidency and his place in history. And that's certainly true. I think for President Obama's heart. Not look at President Obama through the prism of President Trump. They probably both hate that, but they are linked together in some ways, I think in history because they're so opposite there. So. So much the, the all Star Trek episode, where you had the, the two aliens who are the exact opposites of whatever and Trump has made so much of his tenure about undoing the Obama presidency that you can't evaluate that ministration without seeing what follows, so I think that that was when we used to go back and do the book and the first version with a picture book coffee table book. So the text let's face it. Nobody reads the text of picture book, that's not the point. That's not why you buy it. So we took the taxed and then blew it out and doubled. It almost in Incisa it like a regular book for a new audience. I wanted to ask about the how the twenty sixteen election impacted President Obama's relationship with secretary Clinton because in the book and you talk about that election night, and how Odom a handle debt and some of the conversations he had with secretary Clinton in the wake of the election. And, and on that evening. And you say that Obama blamed Clinton who quote brought many of her troubles on herself and ran a quote scripted Solis campaign. Can you talk a bit about how the election impacted the relationship between Obama Clinton? I think the prisoner is people were understandably perhaps a little defensive about what happened in the election was this, their fault in some way, both because of the Russia thing, did they do enough on Russia. And then largely, you know, if your presidency is successful, why would it lead to something like Donald Trump? If you Brock Obama, it's a natural question to ask, and I think that they look that it's a way to second. You guys are putting the finger us. But how about the candidates she's the one who was out there in, in Las we were on the ballot and you know, it was kind of a corporate campaign, that Hillary Clinton ran in some ways, they pull tested or focused tests. I think something like eighty five slogans before ending up with, you know, stronger together. And I think that it's not surprising to see a president who's frustrated by the outcome of election expressing that about the candidate. Again, Bill Clinton Al Gore, had this out in the final days of of their presence. He after gore loss and Clinton thought he squandered, what was a pretty good record. So I don't know. That it's personal. I don't think that there's any animosity there. But I think that there are certain defensiveness on the part of, of the people who were leaving the White House about why it was their party lost. Yeah. It's, it's interesting that you bring up Clinton and gore because I think there's two different dynamics, but with the same result, I mean, I think Bill Clinton thinks that Al Gore ran away from him and his record and that hurt him. It's one of these things where in both of these cases, you can argue because it was so close, you can put any one variable. That say boy Bill Clinton had been in Florida that last weekend, he certainly would have gotten seven hundred more votes. Or. But with Hillary Clinton, I think she was running in some ways as I'm the third term there were differences. She, you know, distance herself from TPP, which was a political decision. I, I don't think that helped her much, but maybe the knock you waited her on some of the trade stuff. But how much do you think Obama still ruminates this on Hilary's failure? I know that a lot of his staff everything you row ranked true from what I've heard from the staff, Iowa obviously not talk to President Obama about it. It didn't come up at the closing didn't come up with the closing. Thank you. Thank you for that. We'll do a special show on that next week. Chose real estate. The latest the help. Start asking much harder. Question this keeps up, but do you think this is something that you know, should pick them off for a week? And then you've done, or is he caught in the, which I think Clinton was for President Clinton furrow for a while. The real you know, kind of what I'd call political depression of look what they've done to what I felt. Yeah. It's a great question and hard and Harmon answer. Because unlike President Clinton, I don't think President Obama shares a lot of his internal life with even with people who are close to him and his staff. There are moments which I thought was interesting. We learned about in the days after the election when he talked with Ben Rhodes and others and tried to sort of put this in history. Right. How does this happen in effect? And he seemed to go through as they describe any way, kind of multiple stages of grief right, anger denial and I don't know if we got to acceptance or not sometimes, I think I came along twenty years too early said at one point did we push too hard? I don't hear him from his aides description anyway wonder why. He dating wrong and presence often don't, I'm not sure he says during regrets doing healthcare, or regrets, you know, his policy on Syria or the Iran deal, or something like that. I think it's natural for him to smart. Guys, awful guy to try to understand why it is that America would pick not once but twice the first African American president of the Asli progressive leader and then turn so radically to the other side, some not, not somebody who's different ideologically. That's kind of normal after eight years, but somebody who literally denied President Obama's right to have the job. The whole birther conspiracy theory that Trump was out there promoting. And so, I think I think troubles in my I think, I think it troubles because it's hard not to look at that and say, I did all this. I worked so hard. We, we made so much progress and to watch sort of unravel has to be painful, but in public anyway, and even I think, in private with his aides he tries to zen approach this, too shall pass histories eggs, and then zags we're in Zagreb. Now but will zig back. But I'm looking forward to his book, which we're still waiting for right? Because you coughed. I'm taking the next question, it'd be cough again. You have to leave fell. Many real so many, there's new there's there's new rule show. I like timely humor. It doesn't have to be funny, but it's timely on Obama. The thing that really intrigues me and I wish you know, there were certain you know, this better or at least as well as I do that there were days that I wish Bill Clinton didn't share, much of his, his inner thoughts of people around him who they would share them with you. But the, the whole birther thing is the thing that intrigues me because it really does go to the woods Chitimia of Obama as a leader in essay, historical figure in both the United States in the world. I'd love to figure out how far into your head. He got, you know, through him and around him on that particular got into I think Trump got into his head, I do, and he's very careful about not trying to characterize at least publicly opposition to him. As race based not that you denied it. But he just didn't want that to be the defining characterization of his presence. He didn't want to be the first black president. He wanted to be the first president who happened to be black. Right. He didn't want to be president of black America. You want to be president of all America, it diminishes him if he's defined entirely by race. And therefore, I think he thought it diminished him as well if he complained about the opposition to him being based on race, although obviously part of it was, but in private. And again, we get this through through Ben Rhodes who I thought provide a window in which we had not seen before we had a conversation with president bowel points. What why do you think people are so strongly opposed you? He says, because I think my election, drove some white people crazy. And he'd never said that in public. It was interesting to hear him say that in private. He in fact, does, of course, not surprisingly see some of the option particularly President Trump as based on race. And the birther thing clearly gone is my one day. He's back at home in Chicago during his presidency is rummaging through boxes, and the adequate, Ernie finds a sort of. Hospital your baby born Khanna, like handout, certificates that they give a new mom from Hawaii when his when he was born and he brought it back to the White House when he gets back to wash a see what I got here guys. Look what I found. And of course, didn't prove anything, really, it's not a legal document. But it led him to say let's get the actual long form verse to go and put it out there and Joe power..

"Chief White House correspondent Jonathan. Karl congresswoman Alexandria Cossio. Cortes of New York is here for her first Sunday show interview since taking office congressman welcome to this week. Thank you for joining us, Chris. Thank you for having me. So what you said, you watch that whole interview play out. Does this change the calculus on impeachment? I think every day that passes the pressure to impeach growth. And I think that it's justifiable, I think the evidence continues to come in, and I believe that with the president now saying that he is willing to break the law to win reelection. That, that goes that transcends partisanship. It transcends party lines. And this is now about the rule of law in the United States of America. There's a new poll out this morning and BBC news that shows significant growth in democratic support for impeachment and the survey was done before Georgia's interview Pelosi though speaker Pelosi is really held her line on this house that flying with progressives. I think for me this question has should not be about polls. It should not be about elections. I think that, that impeachment is, is incredibly serious. And this is about the presence in evidence at the president may have committed a crime in this case more than one. And so, I believe that, that our decision on impeachments should be based in our constitutional responsibilities and duties, and not in elections or polling that being said with the increase in polls, I think the American people are now recognizing. In, in a much broader scale the depth and the severity of the misconduct coming out of the White House and a demand to protect our institutions and protect the rule of law in the United States, and at least opening an inquiry into into possible misconduct. So how real is that progressive frustration that speaker Pelosi said, at least so far, she seems to be really holding the line that she's not ready to do that. I think it's quite real. I believe that there is a very real. Animus and desire to make sure that we are that, that we are holding this president to account what have you told her about this? Well, you know, I think we come together as a caucus, and we have these conversations and those as, as this bigger likes to say they are family conversations. There are ones that are held in confidence. But I do believe that. That this is truly again. And I've said this publicly said it privately, I've said it when we subpoenaed, the attorney general and secretary Ross today on the census. I mean this week on the census that this is about the rule of law, and we have to make sure that we that we are holding this president account is holding government to account forty one freshman Democrats that are in seats that were held by Republicans. And from everything I've seen virtually all of them. These are your majority makers all of them oppose moving forward with impeachment. I, I would disagree with that assessment. I think that some of these dynamics are changing, I would never, I would very much not say, all of them are opposed to impeachment. I think many of them are extraordinarily concerned about the misconduct coming out, and I I it really you have to look at the process. There is opening an impeachment inquiry. There's the impeachment voted self ROY there may be some that are out on the impeachment vote itself. But I think that there is a growing sentiment. Even among many of these frontliners has we call them swing district. Democrats think we should at least open an inquiry and look into the abundance of evidence, ten counts of -struction of Justice four with rock, solid evidence. We have violations of the emoluments clause, we need to at least open an inquiry so that we can look at what is going on. And that is what opening an impeachment inquiry means, isn't there a risk, and I take your point about not wanting to do this for politics, politics, very real here. If even if. If you open the inquiry, there's a vote, the president is impeached, obviously would still have to be convicted in the in the Senate with a supermajority that's not going to happen. Right. So, don't you risk handing him a political victory here? So there's a couple of scenarios here one, there's always the possibility that you open impeachment inquiry, and it does not result in a referral that we opened the inquiry victory. Look at everything, though, I think that this is about us doing our jobs. And if we're talking about what's going to be victory for Trump and what's not gonna be victory for Trump. Then we are politicizing and we are tainting this process, which should again should be removed from politics that being said, Lindsey Graham himself, set, a very low bar for impeachment in nineteen ninety eight nine in the late nineties with the impeachment of Bill Clinton. That impeachment did not result in a vote by the Senate. But I think for us what we need to really realize. Are we doing our job as a member? Of the house, and the Senate has their entire responsibility. Mitch McConnell has over one hundred bills. He hasn't brought election security to his feet. And let's not forget that he's involved in this mess to his, his wife. Transportation secretary Elaine Chao just was revealed by the New York Times for having a whole web of potential conflict of interest, and as it relates to bringing projects to Kentucky as well. I mean, there's a whole other separate set of issues in the Senate. But I think we need to be concerned with our job in the house. They will be right back after this from our ABC stations. This is the sound of.

"Major Garrett who's the CBS news chief White House correspondent as a new book out called Mr. Trump's wild ride that thrills the chills the streams and occasional blackouts next door neighbor presidency and major Garrett welcome. I think for the first time to the Bill Cunningham show, a major how are you? Great to be with you Bill. Thanks for having me. Let's go back to election night. Maybe a day or two before on election day itself. The Trump clan you come through. Of course, I'm headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, which is a key state. So I had the Trump plan on a regular basis on election day itself. It was like two oh five. Donald Trump junior was gonna come on. It's election day. He comes on about two calls and I picked up the hotline we talk a little bit. And he says to me, you know, Bill. My dad could have won this. And I said, what do you mean, you say, well, we didn't have Walker in Wisconsin didn't have case again, Ohio didn't have Bush in Florida. I just had a sense that we could have won this thing about three or four hours later. I got a text from him saying that it's worse than we thought the exit. Polling is terrible. And we're going to lose Ohio by eight points gonna lose Florida by five and I said, well, you know, just what can I say, good luck? You ran a good race by nine thirty. I get a text that says. Doll catches car. What we do. Did you have a sense that the Bush family, I'm sorry that Trump family, not the Bush Bush families on my mind, but the Trump family did not believe including the president never gonna win the election. They did not they they thought they had a chance they thought that they had a punchers chance if you will. And I I write in the book about election night, and that exact process that they went through and that some of their Trump supporters in key states, like Florida, I talk about Susie wild to that don't believe the exit polls. I think Florida's winnable don't give up as a matter of fact, I talk in the book how Don jR, and Eric were deployed to get on every radio show. They could in the handle, right? Try to Trump supporters. Don't despair get out there. It's not over. And as the number started coming in from Florida than North Carolina and elsewhere as the evening progressed starting at about nine thirty things looked better and better internally. It wasn't obvious at the network level. Although I counted the book about ten twenty that evening. I was one of the first if not the first network reported to say in Trump Tower, they are beginning to see this thing turn. Inning and see not one not stupid, maybe three paths to victory. So. But one thing I say in the book about President Trump and candidate Trump is he has a very deep sense. I've got instinct, and he thought he had a chance. And he didn't necessarily believe the exit poll numbers were the true reflection of what was going to happen as the numbers and turn out came through because he saw the crowds. And he has a very NHL sense of what this movement is. And how people responded to him. So did they predict it? No, did I predict it not at all. They thought they had some kind of a chance. But as I recount the book, just as you did when those first exit poll numbers came in. There was some places like oh boy. Well, the county it came back to me the other night. I'm watching what's happening in Macron's France and Macron was elected the forty percent of the vote or communist and the other forty percent were like Nazi types character over the countryside was very unhappy. They had the left and the right wing was like forty percent of the electorate, and I'll look back over the past ten years. I contend the main reason that Barack Obama one was there was a sense. He was an outsider he beat Hillary. We wanted something different. And then I had a sense in two thousand sixteen that Trump is the ultimate outsider. We didn't want Jeb. We didn't want Hillary Glenn again. And when I see going on in France that middle class Americans are like rebelling at seven dollars a gallon gasoline, and there was a rebellion against the status quo with the Bush and the Clintons back and forth. And that's why Obama was elected. And that's why Trump is going to be elected. And then in twenty twenty. God knows what's going to happen. But can you tell me major Garrett? Why do you think it happened? What wasn't on election week election day twenty sixteen that caused it to happen when it was completely unpredicted by all the experts? Well, what I say in the book is there a couple of big issues. One that's idea of an outsider the ultimate outside or someone who really stood a score politics wasn't not just a Clinton or Bush. But someone who said, you know, I dealt with politicians on both right and left them both checks. I know how the system works crime. I'm not that that gave Donald Trump kind of credibility that literally nobody else could talk to the sense that he was self made his supporters believed and that he could not be bought. I can't tell you. How often Bill I heard that during the two thousand sixteen campaign, which I started covering in twenty fifteen I tended more than seventy five Trump rallies. And I talked to these people at every rally I went to to get the perspective. Learn what they had to say that was a big part of it not only outsider, but couldn't be bought the book. Also that there was a sense in Washington for the entire conversation. Our country by immigration was settled, guess what it wasn't. It wasn't settled. No, Donald Trump had a very different message. Most Republicans and Democrats in Washington DC thought about and talked about immigration, and that as resonant as anything else, he said touched a chord, and I write in the book, if you don't agree with Donald Trump's policies on immigration, you better understand. But there are lots of Americans who do and if you wanted different set of policies, you better figure out a way to talk to those people and get them on your side. Because if you don't we they're going to be just immigration standstill over the policies that Donald Trump campaigned on. And it's done every single thing. He said he would do to enforce are gonna remain here. I think that was a big part of that twenty sixteen conversation. Major Garrett I'm in the mid west you travel, the whole country. I guess in the southeast southwest is a bigger issue. I don't see the Democratic Party over the next several weeks capitulating and giving him his five billion dollars for the wall. Because the base of the Democratic Party would like rebel. They don't want that. So I think this immigration issue is going to continue to be Yuejin twenty twenty am I wrong. I think that's the best way to think about it until there's a dramatic shift and one part of that is going to be resolved in the next couple of weeks one way or the other because we have to fund the government. No one's going to have a perpetual government shutdown over wall funding, but there's probably going to be a day or two or so maybe longer, and there's gonna be some push and shove, and then some give and take it. What's the dollar amount? Gonna be how is it defined for border security, all that is subject to negotiation. But this issue is not going to go away. I totally agree with you. And the other thing in twenty twenty alongside immigration, and it was important in two thousand sixteen higher chapter devoted to it. In the book, what happened to the supreme court because Donald Trump was elected president. What's happened to the federal bench because he is president and the future of the supreme court, whether it's Donald Trump reelected or somebody else also going to be an enormous part of the twenty twenty conversation. I'm like a normal God fearing American, and the reason I voted for Trump wasn't the tweets. I don't support him now because of some of his. Anger toward his political opponents, three reasons one is immigration to is the court system and three is the economic economic system in America, which I think despite the market being in the crapper is a positive with Trump there, and that's not going to change and to me as an attorney, you know, my wife's senior judge of the high court of appeals. And I want a court system that reflects the values of people like myself, and I saw no hope of that happening in Cavanaugh Cavanaugh, and you spend quite a bit of time on the ups and downs the whole cabinet nomination. And like every day was like a month. Wasn't it every day the one week that was a month? And there are times when other parts of the Trump White House feel that way or the Trump experience feel that way. I have an entire chapter called ten days. In may the first day James Comey was fire. And then everything that transpired since and the next nine days and Bill tell you this. I've had White House correspondents who work right alongside me at the White House. Rather networks are big newspapers did the stories covered L. The stuff they've come up to me and said reading that chapter major. I forgot half of what happened and I wrote about it. I covered it. And I forgot about it is this pace and velocity of things under the Trump era are sort of dizzying, and that's one of the reasons Bill, I must tell you. I wrote the book sort of have a place where everyone could go to find facts journalism. Everything is on the record in the book. No one has assailed anything in the book about the White House. Not anybody, and I'm proud of that because these times needs something that you can rely on that you can verify and itself thera five. That's why there's no blind quotes in my book. Everyone's on the record for that reason. It's like drinking from a fire hose that the Bush presidency at least Bush forty three the first two or three years were unbelievable. But things even doubt Obama was no drama Obama and right now, the dramatic events happening or like unbelievable like like every few days and God help us when Muller issues a report later this month or in January what? What the hell is going to come of that? I mean, and I think probably the Trumpster did commit some financial crime at some point in his life owning thousand company he's gonna do something wrong at some point. But that's going be a launching pad for impeachment. And did you think this? Let me ask you this major Garrett. Did you think Trump's gonna be impeached? I don't because you have to have. Well, right. So so what does that mean does that mean a peach and removed from office? No, I it's it's possible. Possible. I would put it at maybe ten or fifteen percent, no more than that. Based on what we know now on the inclination of incoming House Democratic majority that they would go down that road articles of impeachment and vote on. But if they were asked me a trial in the Senate and the threshold is unreachable. It wouldn't happen. Absent a kind of revelation that is so striking. So. So absolutely gasping do seeing that the political system comes to a fundamentally different interpretation of the motives, and means of this presidency than it has so far that seems highly highly unlikely to me, I do think that there's going to be very serious oversight from the Democrats are gonna ask a lot of pesky questions. The president. I know in the process now is trying to lawyer up the White House in the counsel's office to get ready for that. There's gonna be some some battle royale is about what the president's intentions war. What's people who work for him did or didn't do? And it's going to be hard in that environment is the president said the day after the election to move legislation forward. He said it's one or the other either you investigate me all we do deals. We're not going to do both. Right. That's sort of an operative dynamic as we looked at twenty nineteen major Garrett CBS news..

Hey, Mr. Trump's while rides the name of majors book, and before we get there, a major if I May President Bush lying in state at the rotunda. All good it worked out what happened yesterday. And who are the notable Warner's there, sir? Well, of course, all of special congressional Washington there and many of the key members of President, George. Herbert walker? Bush's cabinet was there. Mike Pence, the vice president gave a tremendous set of remarks linking not only. George H W Bush to the presidency to congress, which is his son Mike Pence and sun, a marine aviator, George Herbert Walker Bush, a naval aviator, maybe those remarks whereas good as you can get as well as the tributes from the speaker of the house, Paul Ryan majority leader Mitch McConnell, and so many luminaries in the George Walker Bush cabinet there to say. Mattered. He won election, maybe eight loss in ninety two at the time this presidency looked like something approximating a failure in retrospect with the distance and perspective of time. It looks better. It looks a lot better. And that's one thing every president has ever covered. It's always said about the office and the burdens I'm not gonna worry as much as you might think I will worry about today's decision measured by today's standards. I have to think about today's decision measured by the test of time. Wow. And that's that's harder than it. Sounds really hard. Yeah. Politics is instantaneous judgement, so harsh and immediate. And this office requires a kind of patience and the kind of confidence in the longer term evaluation of what you've done that's hard. Doesn't come natural. We'll said major did you have occasion to have a many personal interactions with president George H W Bush. I did not I covered his presidency where I live in Washington literally Joe behind years. No, nothing reporter trying to figure it out. Bathrooms are in Washington. Nineteen ninety ninety two the time of his presidency. I was covering congress a lot what's going on the Bush White House was very energetic. Even though the congress was democratic and hostile. He's got a tremendous amount of work done. Yeah. Campaign was nineteen ninety two. So I saw it H W Bush New Hampshire, so pack you can in there. Let's remember that failed challenge to George Hw. Bush was from that knowledge from the conservative, right, but from the economic nationalist populist, right and the hard line on immigration, right? And what does that sound like now that you plan and was foreshadowing kind of movement that Donald Trump set in motion and bolted himself to the presidency on in two thousand sixteen as interesting that you make that observation major, but see the thing is that people are forgetting major, and then we'll talk about the book, Mr. Trump's wild ride. But I think h w would have won he would have won. If it wasn't for Ross Perot? And I've only heard that mentioned once I mean Ross Perot took nineteen percent of the vote at least two thirds of that would have gone to President Bush, correct? Ross Perot was a significant downdraft in ninety two and it took those Republicans who were upset with George. Herbert walker? Bush over tax increases, you remember, he said, famously lamented review. Tax. Yeah. Any changed and ideological Republicans are no tax Reagan Republicans that was just unforgivable all the other things. She did not withstanding. They just couldn't get over that essentially, was deepening. And there was just a sense that Washington wasn't functioning Ross Perot came in there and said, I can fix it. I covered his campaign for the time. It lasted during that spring. Forget ninety two Ross was leading the polls not just a challenger. He was leading in polls for the presidency and then things better control. But the colo- factor was real. But it spoke to this thing that Pat Buchanan, I touched on and then Ross Perot capitalized Republican dissatisfaction with bipartisan, president cutting deals with Democrats. Interesting thing about this, George H W Bush is really kind of a transitional figure in our political way of thinking about loyalty to party and intense loyalty to your partisan ideology and approach you didn't have that loyalty any pay the price for most politicians haven't made that same mistake or tried to avoid making that mistake since Beijing guy with Piscopo morning, major chief White House correspondent for CBS news has a great new book called Mr. Trump's wild ride, which has just gone rave reviews. Major Garrett what spied you to write this book, sir? So I've been covering the American presidency for better part of twenty years in congress for ten years before that and I come with the Trump campaign. I opened the book killers, you know, by saying, you know, I missed some things I blew it. I loosen things. Here are experiencing supposed to be a nodal not a know it all and I wanted to approach my readers admitting that straight up to say, look any journalist comes at you. After twenty sixteen campaign says I do everything I had it all figured out there. Probably well, there's certainly fooling themselves, and they're trying to fool you. So I wanted to try to take this moment and say, we have all this heavy emotional reaction to President Trump and the sense of I do I love him so much. I can't scandal. Eat them these ruining America. So pronounced there's really nobody in the middle about. Well, what is the Donald Trump presidential experience? Like, and I wanted to be as much as I could journalists who just tells people what's happened. What's likely to last from the Trump presidency? I don't get involved in at all. Because I know you've looked at the book was telling people to like or dislike this credit. I don't mean on that at all. You tell you is what's already happened with her legacy items of this presidency and how they happened at how President Trump made them having journalism. It's what I've done my whole life. And I thought if any topic deserve that kind of treatment, it was this one, you know, a major God bless you for doing that man because it's everybody's so slanted one way or the other. I love the way you approach this. And and you went after this like this. Let me tell you to my goodness major. I could talk to you for an hour. We'll save that for for the dinner at Dino, and Harry when we. But one on one major Garrett, Donald J Trump you must have had little interaction there. Yeah. Gives the inside on that. If you would. Well, key is a formidable and charming person he has to bend. This sense of presence when he walks into any room or walks into any place. He owns it. And he knows it, and that projection of his sense of confidence and strength, and charm is unmistakable every politician at that high level has it, but Donald Trump has it to a different degree. And that's one of the reasons he has this rapturous re re relationship with his Trump supporters. I've been the more than one hundred Trump rallies but twentieth. President and about eighty during the campaign I've seen this process. It's unlike anything I've ever seen in American whilst wire man, people really feeling an emotional and deeply in second intense. He's mine I'm with him. We're together we're together in this thing. And that's why I think sometimes the media doesn't understand that when it is covering this. President those supporters feel kind of left out Joe. Is their voices? Come supporters voices. One through the book. I wanted their voices represented as well. 'cause I met I talked to them. I got to know them, and they're a part of this conversation national and they're in the book as well. And you had an exclusive interview with Jared, Kushner, what did he tell you about the crown prince of Saudi Arabia major? So thank you for noticing. In this context. So during the transition President-elect Trump told Jared, you're in charge of establishing my most important foreign policy relationships, and they're accused segments in the Jared on the record talks about how the relationship with the Saudi kingdom got started. He talked to Mohammed bin era parent, the current crown prince all the time during the transition, and it was Jared Kushner and the crown prince put together that first presidential trip to Saudi Arabia. The first time that's ever happened in American history and lay down a marker in the region that America is gonna be different under Donald Trump in terms of a one Israel Saudi Arabia and the entire complex of issues there. And one of the reasons President Trump has been less willing to maybe some Republicans and lots of Democrats wanted to be criticizing or change in relationship with Saudi Arabia because of Jared Kushner's relationship with the crown prince number one and number two. How this president believes there needs to be a counterweight? In the region to Iran and Saudi Arabia is it and that's more important than almost anything else. And if you wanna learn how that all got started you can hear it from Jared Kushner on the record in my book and Henry Kissinger had some interesting advice for Jared Kushner on the diplomatic front, didn't he? With china. He said look one of the things with Chinese always want to figure out is what's the bottom line? They don't know who your dad is. They don't know what his approach is going to be used that. Unpredictability as a strength keep them off guard. And Joe, you might remember, I certainly a breaking news story freaked out about it at the time during the transition. President-elect Trump takes a call from the Taiwanese president on the foreign policy establishment freaks out Jared Kushner said they were able to use that phone call and the questions about whether President Trump wants inaugurated with Keith the one China policy, keeping it was no issue was always going to keep it. But he takes the call from the Taiwanese to do what do you get the Chinese a bit rattled up the summits that establishes a personal relationship between president Xi and President Trump. That's a microcosm of how this president deals with these big issues again all on the record Jared Kushner in the book imager Garrett chief White House. Correspondent CBS news has a great new book.
