7:02 pm
for the supreme court, fighting isis and the job of the presidency, if it has changed him. let's take a look. >> sean: and mr. president, good to see you. what a week this has been. >> president trump: it's been a great week, we have accomplished a lot. >> sean: i got some time to talk with you earlier in the week. in the oval office. the thing that really stood out to me is you seem to be enjoying yourself and very focused on all the promises you made in the campaign. is it your intention to keep every promise? >> president trump: i'm going to keep as many as i can. in politics, you make a promise and some reason you can't, opposition makes it impossible. i will keep a lot of them. everyone is talking about we are going to do things that i said we are going to do. and we are going to take care of a lot of people that were mistreated by governments for many, many years. that's really how i won the
7:03 pm
election in the first place. >> sean: let's talk about the policies on syria, iraq, sudan, yemen. extreme vetting. >> president trump: beyond those countries. we are going to have extreme vetting for people coming in to our country and if we think there is a problem, it is not going to be so easy for people to come in anymore. you look at what's gone wrong. we can go one after another. but then you go to other countries and look at different places all over europe, what's happening with germany, it is a mess. crime is incredible. we are just not going to let that happen here. >> sean: would be gambling if at some point, when there is a procedure in place, if you can ascertain whether somebody has been radicalized o or not, or whether they are treated by some
7:04 pm
of their soldiers on how to get in. does that mean no-go? if you can't see what's in their heart? >> president trump: we don't want to have gambles, our country has a lot of problems. well beyond this. i found out a lot over the last week, we have serious difficulties. we don't need another difficulty. right now the fbi has over 1,000 investigations going on. 1,000. all over the place. these are people that we let in. we don't need this. we don't need this. some people have come in with evil intentions. most haven't, i guess. we can't take chances. it's a big gamble. you are throwing something out. i love this country. we can't let this continue to happen. we have taken in tens of thousands of people. we know nothing about them. they have no papers. how can you fight somebody when
7:05 pm
you don't know anything about them and you have no papers? you can't. on your show i've seen they have fbi agents, all these people as experts, they say it is impossible to vet them. i don't have to see that to know that they are right. we are people in this country that will call us problems. we are going to be very tough and very, very vigilant. >> sean: you do not need congress now as it relates to building a wall. he said in an interview last night that you plan to do this expeditiously. that's about 700-mile of fencing. other measures as well. do you think you'll need more than that? we have to go to congress to get their support? speak to the wall is necessary. that is not just politics. >> president trump: people want protection. a wall protects. all you have to do is ask israel. they were having a total disaster coming across and they
7:06 pm
had a wall. iis 99.9% stoppage. a proper wall. not a wall that is as high as they have now. they have little toy wall. on even know why they are wasting their time. i don't even know why they build a ramp. it's cheaper to knock it over. >> sean: impenetrable. >> president trump: a real wall. serious, you will have people violated but you will have people waiting for them when they do. general kelley, a great man who just got approved very quickly by the senate recommended highly by general madison and others, he is going to be taking very good care of us, homeland security. he's going to be taking very, very good care of us. he didn't even give an order yet and all of a sudden the border started tightening up. you saw that. they talked about the borders. just by naming general kelly.
7:07 pm
>> president trump>> sean: you n thursday you will make your supreme court announcement. will it be from the list that you gave out during the campai campaign? >> president trump: the answer is yes. >> sean: is it an originalist? >> president trump: i can't say that yet. i have made up my mind, mostly. i think this will be a great choice. >> sean: others threatening, we've never had a supreme court justice filibuster but there is a chance that might happen. >> president trump: whatever happens happens. >> sean: would you want mitch mcconnell to use the nuclear option? >> president trump: we have a obstructionist. what they did to jeff sessions who is a great man, a wonderful man and then they deleted another week because they have a one week delay option?
7:08 pm
that is not fair to a man. other people are delayed look at pompeo for cia. this is a great choice. everybody agrees. they delayed him a number of days also. even though he was voted on -- a very, very great choice. why are they doing that? they are obstructionist i go to a meeting with them. it's supposed to be a quiet meeting. they leave the meeting and have a news conference about what i said. talking to the cameras about what exactly i said. which is fine. because i would say things that i don't mind going out on because the deal was they would talk to the press. >> sean: a leaking in washington? that's a shock. >> president trump: but 15 feet away from the door. look, these are obstructionist.
7:09 pm
>> sean: i don't number you saying this in the campaign. i was on the road with you quite a bit. you're not talking about a 10% reduction in spending. in other words, eliminating -- will you surprise republicans before you got here, $9.7 trillion debt ceiling? >> president trump: sometimes you have to fill the well in order to get the economy going. we have to take care of our military. our military is more important than a balanced budget. we have a military that is really depleted. i am negotiating the price of airplanes. can you believe that? i understand airplanes. i cut off hundreds of millions of dollars off one particular plane. hundreds of millions of dollars in a short period of time. it wasn't like i spent weeks,
7:10 pm
hours, really less than ours. many hundreds of millions of dollars. and the plane is going to be better. >> sean: but you do want that 10% short of the military. >> president trump: i want have a strong military. to me that is much more important than anything. >> sean: one of the worst ways to spend money it seems is going through the washington bureaucracy. everyone has their pet project. infrastructure, the democrats want $1 trillion. i think you talked about $137 billion to start. is that something want a pay-as-you-go? something you would rather -- >> president trump: our country is in bad shape. we spent $6 trillion in the middle east. $6 trillion, sean. how do we do this? by the way, the middle east, i do want to be like -- the speech can be dark on occasion. but we spent $6 trillion. when i was interviewed last
7:11 pm
night, he said aren't you going to make them angry? i said -- i thought it was a sort of strange question. they are all angry now. the whole world is angry right now. there are such problems in the world, such anger. we spent all of this money in the middle east and other places and in the meantime, we have to rebuild our country and infrastructure. some republicans are fine with it. some republicans don't like it. actually, the democrats probably like that more than wrote republicans. our roads, bridges, highways, schools, our country is in bad shape. >> sean: i hear your helicopter it out there the background. you took great pride meeting with carrier, saving jobs. saving jobs in florida. general motors. >> president trump: we have a lot of plants, that are to be
7:12 pm
built in north carolina, pennsylvania. i've only been here four days. they understand that if they build a plant outside of the united states, fire all of their employees, when that product, whether it is a car or air conditioner or washing machine, when that comes through the border, it is going to be heavily taxed. >> sean: you want to get rid of 75% regulation or more? >> president trump: by the way, -- we will have the same amount of protection for the consumer. this is very important to me. we will also be able to create jobs. right now you can't even start a company in this country. >> sean: the media, a little bit of a contentious start. i've seen out the "new york times," cnn, abc, they use the word liar to describe
7:13 pm
you. >> president trump: these are very hostile, angry people. >> sean: they also colluded against you on the campaign. >> president trump: the media is very dishonest. they are very dishonest people. >> sean: i said journalism is dead, so we agree. >> president trump: never died, but they are very dishonest people. in many cases. i get stories that are so false and so dishonest. >> sean: at martin luther king's bust. >> president trump: yeah, they said it was taken out of the oval office. that is a very serious charge. they are not saying the bust is taking out, what they are saying is that i am a racist. it's a very serious charge. then it turned out the bust -- in fact, i got very angry at my people. i said who took my bust out? and they said it was never mov moved. and i said, how can they say that? the reporter said it was taken out. that's a very, very serious
7:14 pm
charge because that is a racist charge. then, when it was revealed that they were wrong, nobody even talks about it. there's a headline, massive story, -- i would never do that, i have great respect for dr. martin luther king. i would never do that. but when it was revealed that it was wrong, there was no story. there has been like a line. i'll give you another example. i went to the cia, i have great respect for intelligence. i don't have any respect for the head of the cia -- john brennan. i did not think he was good. i've got great respect for the cia and the people. i've even more respect now because they showed me. they are amazing. i made a speech. i am really good at knowing that i do well or do poorly. i could not have done so poorly because i won.
7:15 pm
in your own head, you know you did great or didn't do so great. i gave a speech that i really ws a 10. i had a standing ovation like you wouldn't believe. everybody. it was such a success. now i see cnn and other people saying well, who was in the audience? i went there with a few people. there is nobody. it was all cia. but i heard the first row -- you saw a press conference, sean did a great job. i didn't even know who he was, he was saying that we stopped at the audience. i can't stack the audience of the cia. i paid great homage to the wall with the stars. and the audience was standing ovation. they are standing from the beginning. they didn't even sit down. it was one standing ovation the whole time. i get back, and fox that it was great. they treated me great.
7:16 pm
when our new person running, mike pompeo who is fantastic, he said to me the other day, it was so great. everybody loved it. when i got back, i saw the speech, they didn't like it, it wasn't respectful, it was a smattering of applause. it was like 300 -- 350 people in the room. if i took a vote right now, i would've won 3520. even that was the main -- much of the media, not all of it is very, very dishonest. honestly, it is fake news. they make things up. >> sean: here's my thing between twitter, instagram, facebook, if we know now through wikileaks, some of these networks were colluding with hillary clinton's campaign, to defeat you. i've seen newspapers, two table
7:17 pm
networks that use the word liar. my question is, does not make you want to rethink entirely how this administration will deal with the media? >> president trump: they are the liars. let me give you an example. when john got up, they talked about the audience, the largest audience. i did. if you had television, all the sources, the largest audience in the history of inaugurations. i did. they try to demean it. i'd love to show you a picture, when i was in that speech, i looked out. there is a sea of people. i don't even know when that picture was taken, by the way. it wasn't taken from where i was. they take a picture from the back, from the washington monument. monument. a backward picture. they are so demeaning and they are so dishonest. in many cases -- >> sean: i don't remember
7:18 pm
treating them treating barack obama that way. >> president trump: they would never. he has been very nice to me, he wrote me a beautiful letter. but the martin luther king bust for example. that was a terrible thing. >> sean: coming up, more of my exclusive interview with donald trump in the white house. i will ask him how he will repeal and replace obamacare. that, and more as we continue from our nation's capital. >> we will have an ambitious legislative agenda as well. our legislative work starts with repealing and replacing obamacare and saving families from the catastrophic rise in premiums and debilitating loss of choice and just about everything else. >> the president is eager to get moving on this agenda and so are we. already, we have hit the ground
7:19 pm
running. taking the first steps to repeal and replace obamacare. >> obamacare is a disaster. the democrats are up and saying signs like it's wonderful. it is a disaster. i actually talked with paul and the group about just doing nothing for two years. the dems would come begging to do something. because 2017 is going to be catastrophic price increases. your deductibles are through the you roof. you can't use it. >> give the american people a health care system that is more affordable, accessible, more doctors, more plans. >> we can't wait. every time they tell you about obamacare, we are taking them out of a big jam.
7:20 pm
we've done well in life, with help from our advisor, we made it through many market swings. sure we could travel, take it easy...
7:21 pm
but we've never been the type to just sit back... not when we've got so much more to give when you have the right financial advisor, life can be brilliant. ameriprise and sometimes i struggle to sleep at night,blind. and stay awake during the day. this is called non-24. learn more by calling 844-824-2424. or visit with not food, become food? thankfully at panera, 100% of our food is 100% clean. no artificial preservatives, sweeteners, flavors, or colors. panera. food as it should be.
7:22 pm
7:23 pm
>> sean: welcome back to "hannity," as we are outside the white house and earlier today during my cable exclusive interview with president trump, i asked him about his campaign promise to repeal and replace obamacare. take a look. obamacare. the republicans, the meeting in philly, you're going to see them, they had an artificial deadline. they set the deadline for tomorrow. they don't think they're going to make that. you want the same to time, repeal and replace. what is crucial for you to have in that plan? >> president trump: what is crucial for me is for the public to understand that obamacare is a disaster. okay? because now the democrats are saying oh, it is wonderful. it is a horror issue. you have 160% increases like in arizona. it is a disaster. it will be worse this year than it was last year. it explodes and 2017.
7:24 pm
i told republicans, if you really want to do something, just let it explode. and then they will come begging us, begging us. that's not the right thing for the public because we have to get it fixed. but obamacare doesn't work. it doesn't work. president obama told me something that i thought was terrific. and i believe he means it. he said, if you came up with a better plan and you can get a better plan approved, he will support it. i actually believe he means it. i do believe we are going to have a much better plan, a cheaper plan. i believe it's going to be a lot less expensive. obamacare is the un-affordable care act. the governor of minnesota, who hopefully, he is better now because he took a pretty bad tumble -- he said a month ago actually during the campaign and after the campaign, he said the
7:25 pm
unaffordable care act or he called it the affordable care act is now unaffordable. bill clinton called it crazy. >> sean: it went up $5400 when it was supposed to be down $2500 a year. >> president trump: it is unaffordable. it doesn't work. >> sean: you can even buy a catastrophic plan. >> president trump: the deductibles are so high that unless you get hit by a tractor, you will never be able to use it. >> sean: let me ask you. energy -- it is the lifeblood of our economy. we are dependent on foreign nations, many of whom do not like us. we have more shale, new technology, hydrocracking, natural gas, the middle east, how important a goal is do you s country to move towards energy dependence? >> president trump: very important. >> sean: four years? >> president trump: they stop you environmentally. we can do it and less than four
7:26 pm
years. they stop a lot of good things, not only energy, buildings, factories, plants. they use it to stop things. it is like a roadblock. it's not going to happen anymo anymore. i am an environmentalist. i believe solely in the environment in i will protect the environment. you don't have to have a man who wants to build a factory or a person or a company wait ten years going through approvals at the end of the 10-year, get rejected. okay? >> sean: you have mentioned the forgotten man a lot, -- >> president trump: and woman. >> sean: you mentioned it last night, i gave you statistics, the very first interview i did with you, 95 million americans out of the workforce. 44 million americans on food stamps. >> president trump: i have never heard you say that, sean. >> sean: i stayed every night. explain, by getting rid of
7:27 pm
regulation, energy independence, jobs that will be created, a 15% tax rate reduction. trading, trillions. how does that help those people i talk about all the time? >> president trump: hugely. we are going to have jobs. they are going up good jobs. ford is moving back, general motors is going to be spending massive amounts of money. fiat chrysler, the head is a highly respected man, sergio. through all the way from italy. fox con. alibaba. he is a great died by the way. these companies are all excited. oh, they would have done anyway is what the media said. if you see jack ma, he had no intention of doing it until i
7:28 pm
got elected. he said i'm only going to do this because of donald trump. what difference does it make? as long as he doesn't. these are great people. these are great companies. they're going to spend a tremendous amount of money. it's all because they know how good it's going to be and what it means is jobs. >> sean: and trade deals, you got rid of tpp. >> president trump: they didn't do anything which is a killer for our country, because we don't do it and everyone else does it. >> sean: you want bilateral? >> president trump: absolutely. you know what? if the deal doesn't work out, we terminate the deal. when you get into the mosh pit, when you have all these countries together, you cannot get out of the deal. you take the lowest denominator, in other words, your countries that do not treat us well. they are in there, we want a deal with the ones that treat us well. if they don't treat us well, we
7:29 pm
terminate or we give them a 30 day notice of termination and then they come back and they want to renegotiate in those 30 days and we get a better deal. we do not make good deals anymore. you almost wonder, who makes these deals? how did it happen? we are going to make great trade deals, we are going to have jobs, strong military, we are going to do great. >> sean: coming up, asked president trump about the threat of radical islam and how he plans to defeat it. that, and more, as we continue from washington, d.c. please stay with us. >> we will reinforce all the lives and form new ones and unite the civilized world against radical islamic terrac terraces. which we will eradicate completely from the face of the earth. we have to get rid of isis. we have no choice. this is evil. this is a level of evil we
7:30 pm
haven't seen. yesterday, i had the honor of swearing in general john kelly as our secretary of homeland security. it is going to be amazing. tomorrow, i will swear in general james mattis as our new secretary of defense. these men have devoted their lives to defending america and now i look forward to working with them. to keep our country safe from the many threats we face today. that includes protecting americans from radical islamic terrorism. brand new car. nobody's hurt, but there will still be pain. it comes when your insurance company says they'll only pay three-quarters of what it takes to replace it. what are you supposed to do? drive three-quarters of a car? now if you had liberty mutual new car replacement™, you'd get your whole car back. i guess they don't want you driving around on three wheels. smart. with liberty mutual new car replacement™,

7:36 pm
child, one guy gets away with their child and you chat tackle the other guy. that guy knows where your child is. we do not water board that guy? >> president trump: it used to be used because they said it really wasn't torture, it was the one step slightly below torture. torture is real torture. waterboarding is i'm sure not pleasant, but waterboarding is just short of torture. when all of a sudden they made it torture, i spoke with people the other day, who are in this world that we are talking about. they said absolutely it works. absolutely. general mattis said he doesn't intend to use it. i am with him all the way. do i believe it works? yes, i do. >> sean: we actually know it works. there only three people that america waterboarding. that led us to the courier, which led us to bin laden and i

7:38 pm
though, it works. i just spoke to people who told me it worked. that's what they do. >> sean: i spoke to the guy that ran the program and saw the waterboarding of those three people. i would go through these very quickly. israel, one of our closest partners. prime minister netanyahu. tel aviv to jerusalem, the u.s. embassy. how important is it to repair this relationship and what about that move -- >> president trump: it's repaired. got repaired as soon as i -- it's repaired. we have a good relationship. >> sean: your holding back the money that obama gave to the palestinians? where do you stand on the embassy from tel aviv? >> president trump: i do want to talk about it yet. it's too early. >> sean: i know you spoke to -- did you ever see the speech he gave on radical islam?
