HE ALSO ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF WHETHER HE WOULD ALLOW THE FORMER WHITE HOUSE COUNSEL DOM BEGAN TO TESTIFY TO CONGRESS. HERE IS PART OF THE INTERVIEW.>>I’VE HAD HIM TESTIFYING ALREADY FOR 30 HOURS.>>IS THE ANSWER NOW?>>I DON’T THINK I CAN LET HIM AND THEN TELL EVERYONE ELSE YOU CAN, ESPECIALLY HIM BECAUSE HE WAS A COUNCIL. THEY’VE TESTIFIED FOR MANY HOURS, ALL OF THEM PEERED AT MANY, MANY ONE CAN AND THE OTHER CAN’T.>>SO IT’S DONE?>>I WOULD SAY IT’S DONE. NOBODY HAS EVER DONE WHAT I’VE DONE. I’VE GIVEN TOTAL TRANSPARENCY. IT’S NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE LIKE THIS.>>CONGRESS SHOULD BE –>>THEY SHOULDN’T BE LOOKING ANYMORE. THIS IS ALL. IT’S DONE. EVEN MY FINANCE — THEY MUST’VE BEEN LOOKED AT 4:30 $5 MILLION. I ASSUME THEY LOOKED AT MY TAXES. I ASSUMED MUELLER LOOKED AT MY FINANCIAL STATEMENTS, HAVING 20 PEOPLE AND 49 FBI AGENTS AND ALL OF THE STAFF AND ALL THE MONEY THAT WAS SPENT, I ASSUMED THEY LOOKED AT MY TAXES, WHICH ARE FINE. EXCEPT, THEY ARE UNDER AUDIT, BY THE WAY. I WILL TELL YOU THAT OFFICIALLY.>>THEY ARE COMING DOWN ON YOU PRETTY HARD.>>I’M GOING TO COME AFTER TRUMP, CAN YOU IMAGINE SO MANY CAMPAIGNING WHO DOESN’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT ME QUESTION ACTUALLY IS IS CAMPAIGNING ON THAT FACT. I ASSUME FOR THE $35 MILLION, MY TAXES, MY FINANCIAL STATEMENTS, WHICH ARE PHENOMENAL, THEY’VE GONE THROUGH ANYTHING. AND I’M SO CLEAN. THINK OF IT, TWO AND A HALF YEARS AND ALL THAT MONEY SPENT, NOTHING. VERY FEW PEOPLE COULD HAVE SUSTAINED THAT.>>HE ALSO WENT ON AT LENGTH ABOUT ATTORNEY GENERAL WILLIAM BARR SAYING IT WAS HIS CALL TO DECIDE NOT TO GO AND TESTIFY TODAY BEFORE THE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, AND HE MADE THE POINT THAT HE FELT THE ATTORNEY GENERAL WAS BEING TREATED DIFFERENTLY OR UNFAIRLY, IF YOU WILL. WE ALSO ASKED HIM ABOUT VENEZUELA, AND SPECIFICALLY, IF THERE WAS A PHYSICAL THREAT FOR JUAN CUETO, OR IF HE WAS DETAINED, HOW THE U.S. WOULD RESPOND. HERE IS THAT SECTION.>>HE IS ACTUALLY A BRAVE PERSON, AND BECAUSE I KNOW WHAT HE IS GOING THROUGH, I’M SPEAKING TO MY PEOPLE ALL THE TIME, HE IS A BRAVE GUY. WHAT’S HAPPENING IN VENEZUELA IS SAD. WHEN YOU LOOK AT 20 YEARS AGO, ONE OF THE WEALTHIEST COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD, IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT. NOW THEY DON’T HAVE FOOD, THEY DON’T HAVE WATER, PEOPLE ARE DYING FROM HUNGER, IT’S A VERY, VERY SERIOUS SITUATION.>>WHAT ARE YOUR REDLINES IN VENEZUELA?>>I DON’T WANT TO SAY, BUT WE HAVE LOTS OF OPTIONS AND SOME OF THEM ARE TOUGH OPTIONS.>>IS THERE A TIPPING POINT FOR MILITARY INTERVENTION? BECAUSE THERE IS ALWAYS A TIPPING POINT BUT I WOULD RATHER NOT DO THAT. I JUST WANT TO HELP THE PEOPLE. THE PEOPLE ARE DYING. THEY HAVE NOTHING. IF THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO WERE LIVING WELL 20 YEARS AGO. THEY HAVE NOTHING. THEY DON’T HAVE WATER AND FOOD. AND THEY ARE DYING OF HUNGER RIGHT ON THE BORDER. IT’S TERRIBLE.>>WE ALSO ASKED THE PRESIDENT ABOUT THE 2020 RACE, ESPECIALLY GIVEN ANOTHER DEMOCRAT HAS ENTERED THE FIELD, SENATOR BENNET, AND THE PRESIDENT HAD SOME SURPRISING ANSWERS ON HOW HE THINKS THE DEMOCRATIC FIELD IS SHAPING UP IN WHO HE THINKS HE MAY FACE ABOUT 18 MONTHS FROM NOW.>>HE’S NOT GOING TO WIN. I THINK JOE BIDEN SEEMS TO HAVE A LEAD. I WOULD BE VERY HAPPY IF IT WERE BIDEN. SLEEPY JOE.>>WHY?>>I THINK HE DID A BAD JOB, I WOULD BE RUNNING AGAINST –>>YOU THINK HE IS BEATABLE?>>I JUST DON’T THINK HE WOULD BE A VERY GOOD CANDIDATE. WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS. YOU KNOW, I WISH HIM WELL. I WOULD LIKE THEM TO GET IT. I WOULD BE HAPPY. I WOULD BE HAPPY WITH BERNIE. I PERSONALLY THINK IT IS THOSE TWO.>>BETWEEN THOSE TWO?>>I DON’T SEE ANYONE ELSE. IN MY CASE, I ANNOUNCED, AND I WAS PRETTY MUCH — I KNOW I WAS AT THE TOP FROM THE BEGINNING. I THINK HE IS NOW LEADING. BERNIE WOULD BE SECOND, WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS.>>WHO WOULD YOU RATHER FACE?>>WELL, I DON’T WANT TO SAY THAT. I DON’T THINK IT MATTERS VERY MUCH. WE HAVE THE STRONGEST ECONOMY WE’VE EVER HAD. WE ARE DOING PHENOMENAL. WE HAVE THE BEST UNEMPLOYMENT NUMBERS. EFFORT AFRICAN-AMERICANS, A EFFORT AFRICAN-AMERICANS, I EFFORT AFRICAN-AMERICANS, N EFFORT AFRICAN-AMERICANS, , EFFORT AFRICAN-AMERICANS, T EFFORT AFRICAN-AMERICANS, E BEST NUMBERS WE’VE EVER HAD. WOMEN, THE BEST NUMBERS WE’VE EVER HAD. JOB NUMBERS, WEALTH NUMBERS APPEARED AT THE BEST ECONOMY WE’VE EVER HAD. AND MORE PEOPLE WORKING RIGHT NOW THAN THE IN THE HISTORYH NOW THAN THE IN THE HISTORYE COUNTRY.>>JOE BIDEN SAID CHINA IS “NOT COMPETITION FOR US IN THE U.S. “>>WHICH VICE PRESIDENT?>>VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN. PARDON ME.>>MIKE PENCE WOULD NOT HAVE MADE THAT STATEMENT. EVERYONE IS COMPETITION.>>IS HE BEING NAIVE ABOUT CHINA?>>HE IS BEING VERY NAIVE ABOUT CHINA. AFTER I SIGNED THE BILL, THERE WON’T BE ANYTHING LIKE THAT. CHINA, DURING THE OBAMA YEARS IN PARTICULAR, JUST TOOK ADVANTAGE OF OUR COUNTRY SO BADLY. VERY, VERY BIG COMPETITION, CHINA. I’VE STOPPED IT. AND I AM STOPPING IT. OVER THE COURSE OF TWO AND A HALF YEARS, WE’VE GONE UP $17 TRILLION IN VALUE. CHINA HAS GONE DOWN TO $17 TRILLION. THEY HAVE TAKEN A VERY, VERY BIG HIT BECAUSE OF THE TARIFFS, AND EVERYTHING ELSE I’VE IMPOSED. FOR SOMEBODY TO BE SO NAIVE AND SAY CHINA IS NOT A PROBLEM, IF BIDEN ACTUALLY SAID THAT, THAT IS A VERY DUMB STATEMENT.>>WE ALSO ASKED THE PRESIDENT A SERIES OF QUESTIONS ABOUT THE NEXT PHASE OF THIS RUSSIA INVESTIGATION, WHICH IS THE GENESIS OF THE COUNTERINTELLIGENCE INVESTIGATION INTO 2016, AND HE TOLD US HE EXPECTS DECLASSIFICATION OF THESE RUSSIA RECORDS — THE SURVEILLANCE WARRANT APPLICATIONS. HE INTIMATED WEEKS, MAYBE A COUPLE OF MONTHS, BUT IN EFFECT, THAT IS COMING SOON. I ALSO ASKED HIM TO ADDRESS AN EDITORIAL IN “THE NEW YORK TIMES,” AN OPINION PIECE BY THE FORMER FBI DIRECTOR WHERE HE CALLED THE PRESIDENT “AMORAL,” AND CLAIMED IT RUBBED OFF ON THE ATTORNEY GENERAL AND DEPUTY ATTORNEY GENERAL. I ASKED THE PRESIDENT IF HE WOULD TAKE A DIRECTOR COMING OUT OF THE EQUATION, IF YOU WILL, OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS, WHETHER THE COUNTRY WOULD REALLY BE IN THE SAME PLACE. THE PRESIDENT ESSENTIALLY SAID THAT HE FELT THAT DIRECTOR COMEY SHARED A LOT OF THE BLAME FOR WHERE WE ARE TODAY AND THE DIVISION, IF YOU WILL, IN THE COUNTRY.>>Mike: FASCINATING CONVERSATION. CONGRATULATIONS, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

  1. Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders are too old.  They are four and five years older than president Trump.

  2. I'm from England but I just want to say that Trump is the worse of presidents. I've just read all his lies and fact checked it. I'm appaled . I think he is not normal and always uses the word it's true after a lie. God bless America and Save America

  3. Trump has nothing to do with economy. It happens like it has happened in Canada and other country's. Those leaders are not lying and bragging.

  4. The dictator wannabe is so far into his drug and dementia induced hallucinations, he’s seeing monsters everywhere. Get the idiot into rehab or prison and out of the Oval outhouse.

  5. Biden is a idiot. China is the biggest threat next to Russia. Biden didn't do anything positive for our country in the 8 years he was vice president. Trump has done more good for our country in 2years than any other president has ever done in 4 or even 8 years like Obama was in office for. Trump for 2020

  6. Well, many Americans are disappointed that Trump does not speak in Latin an walk around like a English Lord. More Presidential in his phraseology. More BS an promises of a NWO like Classey Gorgeous George.

  7. Oh wow a President with a heart! Demo's don't have a heart they just love a winning argument.

  8. 2020 DONALD TRUMP PRESIDENT 🇺🇸❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🇺🇸🙏🏾💪🏾🙏🏾

  9. President Donald Trump in attorney general William Barr or some of the most honest America loving good and all country. The fact that the criminal corrupt fascist Marxist socialist communist Democrats he's so angry when he is doing such a good job for we the people, says a lot about their character and their priorities.

  10. Nobody is dying for hunger in Vnezuela. Why do you embarg them if you want to feed them? You guyes want their oil thats all. Go home man!!

  11. When this is all done.✔ Everyone will be on Trumps side that has a clue… The ones that aren't will fall.

  13. Testify? What the hell is going on? Testify to what? Barr's opinion on the Muller report? It's all a diversion to the real crimes and everyone knows it.

  14. CNN hoaxed its idiot audience with a fake news story/ a narrative for 2 1/2 years, clearly they aren't too bright.

  15. Where is that man's staff? Does no one have a comb and hairspray? Somebody needs to get on point.
    Lay off the spray tan. Looking a little orange.

  16. Why they keep cutting away? I hope that doesn't become a media trend bc in the future they could use it to rephrase the actual question asked to purposely make the response seem stup*d.

  17. "Trump sits down with Fox News chief intelligence correspondent"
    Nothing intelligent about an interview with Old Orange Face.

  18. Biden becomes president
    Biden appoints Obama vice president
    Biden resigns
    Obama is president again.
    MOPA

  19. Stupib trump next 2 year we never vate for you no more last 2 year 2016 we don't know and we vate for you but no more for next

  20. When FDR, our President during the Depression & WWII '33-'45, would talk with folks his wife Eleanor would have to caution his guests at the Whitehouse. He would say "yes yes", to simply acknowledge he was listening. Not Agreement. I wouldn't worry about national security for the USA proper. It is well funded and hard to break. I would not lose sleep per se.

  21. LOCK HER UP!! Stay the course pariots.God will the deep state with Hillary will be locked up

  22. They keep saying $35 million….come on you know the dems skimmed at least half of that…

  24. I like the way he talks for himself other than Sarah and Kelly. MAGA ALL THE WAY!!! One would think the press know by now that he knows he doesn't have to, and will not, allow them to act like the fools they are. And he brags on our country. Luv it!

  25. TRUMP HAS TO START MAKING ARREST NOW!

  26. Yes but you have not imprisoned all the trator's, not one and they should be in prison whilst they wait for a hearing. This is the only thing that let's you down. It could cost you. This is what the American citizens want more than anything else.

  27. Flip flopping, proven liar…and you believe this crap…Trump is a con man…you know what he has done foundation shutdown due to fraud, Trump U defrauding of students went to court and he was losing so settled out of court…I could go on…those are factual.. so don't tell me you can't read and understand this stuff.

  28. I love Catherine…But while she is an excellent investigative reporter…she is a lousy interviewer. To her I would simply say "stay in your lane and play to your strength." Still…our president handles himself well..very respectful to Catherine.

  29. If the career vampires ask Barr if he is going after comey who act's as innocent as smollett Barr should say i can't remember

  30. CHUMP IS SOOOOOOO IGNORANT AND NAIVE—RUSSIA IS ALREADY IN VENEZUELA AND BACKING MADURO! OMG HE IS TREASONOUS AND SHOULD BE CARRIED OUT IN HANDCUFFS. AND IF HE FIGHTS IT THEN JUST TASER HIS FAT BUTT.

  31. PUTIN SMILED? LMAO THEY WERE ON THE PHONE –HE COULDNT SEE HIM. ONE OF THE 10,000 LIES THAT CHUMP TELLS.

  32. When did the President……ANY PRESIDENT……lose their entitlement to ATTORNEY CLIENT PRIVILEGE.

  33. Can't wait for the trials and Hillary, Obama, our crooked federal agents and some of out media heads are standing at the gallows ready to be hung. The hammer is going to fall. We Americans want justice so it does not happen again.

  34. God bless you, incredible how much he is empathizing with Venezualians. Yet the left wing media paints him as a racist, sexist, noncaring person. God bless you president trump.

  35. The only things Trump has got completely wrong is Isreal and genetically modified foods as far as I'm aware. But other than that he's doing a good job. Peace and love from England.

  36. Huh?! Did he say -"he was so clean and his finances are phenomenal?" And please Trump, STOP acting like you care about starving people when you've locked kids up and stole from sick kids POS!

  37. They don't have food they don't have water and people are dying. So let's put sactions on them to cripple their economy even more. Guido is perfectly safe I don't think you need to worry about that, he's has a lot of rallies and attempted coups and nothing has happened to him. Oh and his rallies get maybe 2,000 people at them at the most. If maduro was this evil dictator would guaido be able to have these rallies? You figure he'd get shot. Maduro got 500,000 people at his rallies on May 2nd but you don't see that on msn of course. To say that the sactions don't effect the people is so ridiculous. The same people who own the oil own the media isn't that enough to make you look harder into what is really going on?

  38. whatever politics you like you cant deny he showed the angry white ""liberal"" people that anything is possible

  39. AG Barr is once again correct. The Democrats are a bunch of whining assholes and deserve to be put down like the clowns they are. Go. Trump for 2020 a Landslide Win.

  40. He's disgusting. No class lower grade narcissist. Nasty, he's nastiest president ever. trump is finished. How are you clean? P%#^*Gr%##^ jerk.

  41. Trump is an idiot. If Hillary would have one the USA now could have 100.000 freshly arrived highly trained doctors, lawyers and engineers from Venezuela. (If you dont get it, Angela Merker used this as an excuse when she opened Germany's door to illegal immigrants)
