Sen. Scott sends message to Iran amid stormy relations with US


AVOID WAR. EVERYBODY IS ON THAT PAGE. AFTER BRINGING A SENATOR OR AN EXPERT IN YOU’RE WELCOME. MY NEXT GUEST HAS A MUCH DIFFERENT TAKE ON GERALDO RIVERA AND A NEW PIECE FOR FOXNews.com, REPUBLICAN SENATOR RICK SCOTT SAYS “IRAN’S LEADERS HAVE SENT A MESSAGE THAT IF THEY CAN’T SELL OIL, THEN NO ONE CAN.” THAT IS ESSENTIALLY A DECLARATION OF WAR,” GARY RICK SCOTT, SITS ON THE ARMED SERVICES COMMITTEE AND JOINS ME. I THINK YOU PROBABLY ARE GERALDO RIVERA AND I WOULD SAY HE IS SOMEWHAT DEFENDING IRAN, I WANT TO GET YOUR REACTION.>>FIRST OF, I JUST GOT BACK FROM ISRAEL A COUPLE WEEKS AGO AND IT WENT TO THE LEBANESE BORDER. I WENT TO THE GAZA STRIP. THEY ARE SUPPORTING HAMAS. HAMAS IS SHOOTING ROCKETS OFF. PUTTING APPEALING BALLOONS WITH EXPLOSIVES TO HER CHILDREN IN ISRAEL AND SO — AND CLEARLY IRAN IS — THEY ARE CONSTANTLY SAYING THEY WANT TO ANNIHILATE ISRAEL AND WE KNOW THAT THE MISSILE THAT THE FACILITIES CAME FROM IRAN, THERE’S NO QUESTION ABOUT THAT. I THINK THEIR GOAL IS TO DRAMATICALLY IMPACT THE OIL MARKETS. WAS GOING TO GET HURT, IT’S ACTUALLY NOT GOING TO BE THE UNITED STATES, IT’S GOING TO BE EUROPE, IT’S GOING TO BE CHINA BUT IF IRAN ACTUALLY WANTED TO BE PART OF THE WORLD COMMUNITY, STOP BEING — STOP GETTING ALL OF THESE — GIVING WEAPONS TO ALL OF THESE HORRIBLE INDIVIDUALS — OR GROUPS THAT ARE TRYING TO ANNIHILATE ISRAEL AND BECAUSE ALL THIS UNREST IN THE MIDDLE EAST. TRY TO BE PART OF THE WORLD MARKET. IT’S CRAZY, WHAT THEY ARE DOING.>>Harris: ‘S WERE TO TALK ABOUT — AGAIN, I’VE GOT GERALDO RIVERA SITTING BY AS WE KIND OF BEEN DRAWING AT ONE ANOTHER OVER THE FACT THAT HE SEEMS TO SUPPORT IRAN IN THIS PROCESS. SENATOR, YOU’RE SAYING THAT YOU’RE FAIRLY CERTAIN NOW THAT HE WANTED THIS. HAVE YOU SEEN INTELLIGENCE THAT MAYBE YOU CAN SHARE ANYTHING ABOUT MEG BECAUSE DEMOCRATS ARE SAYING WE HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE.>>LOOK, IT’S ALWAYS GOOD TO DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO MAKE SURE — EVERY BIT OF INTELLIGENCE THAT I’VE BEEN TOLD ABOUT IS THAT IT CAME FROM IRAN. THEY DID THIS. IS GERALDO RIGHT THAT WE SHOULD BE DISGUSTED WITH WHAT THE STRATEGIES DID WITH KHASHOGGI? THAT WAS ABSOLUTELY THE WRONG THING. BUT RATHER THAN TAKING SAUDI ARABIA, LET’S MAKE SURE LET’S HOLD IRAN ACCOUNTABLE. WHY ARE THEY DOING WHAT THEY’RE DOING WITH HEZBOLLAH. WHY ARE THEY DOING WHAT THEY’RE DOING WITH HAMAS? WHY WOULD THEY CALLED — THEY CLEARLY HAVE SAID THEY WANT TO ANNOY OUT THE MIC ANNIHILATE ISRAEL, OUR PARTNER, OUR ALLY.>>Harris: SENATOR, WE HAVE SOLD THEM WEAPONS. IN SAUDI ARABIA, CAN THEY NOT HOLD ON. I THINK IT’S A LEGITIMATE QUESTION TO BE ABLE TO AT LEAST ASK ABOUT WHAT THEY CAN DO FOR THEMSELVES.>>ABSOLUTELY. HERE’S WHAT YOU SHOULD BE IMPRESSED WITH, ISRAEL DEFENDS ITSELF. WE PROVIDED A LOT OF RESOURCES. YOU REALLY HAVE TO ADMIRE THE ISRAELI DEFENSE FORCE. WE SHOULD EXPECT THAT FOR ALL OF OUR ALLIES. SO MY FOCUS THOUGH IS IRAN HAS GOT TO CHANGE. YOU WANT SOMEBODY TO HAVE A NUCLEAR WEAPON IF IT WANTS TO ANNIHILATE YOUR ALLY? YOU CAN DO THAT.>>Harris: DEATH TO AMERICA TOO.>>RIGHT. THEY WANT TO ANNIHILATE ISRAEL. THEY WANT TO WIPE THEM OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH. WHAT DO THEY SAY, THERE’S NOT GOING TO BE ENOUGH GRAVESITES FOR ALL THE PEOPLE THEY ARE GOING TO KILL IN ISRAEL?>>IT’S AN ACT OF WAR.>>NOT SOMEBODY WANT TO DO BUSINESS WITH.>>I LOVE YOU AS A GOVERNOR, I LOVE YOU HAVE A SENATOR. BUT IF THERE WAS AN ACT OF WAR TO A PROTECTED SAUDI ON THE OIL THEN WHY IS IT AN ACT OF WAR TO CHOKE IRAN SO THEY CAN’T SELL THE OIL? ISN’T AT THE SAME THING CONNECTION TO BE FAIRNESS? THE PRESIDENT UNILATERALLY SAID HE WANTS TO RENEGOTIATE THE NUCLEAR DEAL, SO LET’S RENEGOTIATE THE NUCLEAR DEAL.>>Harris: GERALDO, YOU GOT TO STEP IN. SENDER IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO RESPOND.>>GERALDO, I AGREE WITH YOU. THE FIRST THING WE OUGHT TO TRY TO DO IS SIT DOWN WITH PEOPLE, BUT IT’S VERY DIFFICULT WHEN SOMEBODY IS SAYING DEATH TO AMERICA AND THEY ARE SAYING –>>Harris: DO YOU THINK THAT WE MIGHT SEE THAT?>>WIPED OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH.>>Harris: IS THERE A PLACE THAT MAY OUTSIDE THE OFFICIAL GENERAL ASSEMBLY MEETINGS THAT THE FRENCH PRESIDENT OR ANYBODY CAN FACILITATE THAT? PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS HE DOESN’T NEED ANYBODY’S HELP BECAUSE HE’S OPEN TO SITTING DOWN WITH ANYONE BURIED HIM>>PRESIDENT TRUMP — HE DOESN’T WANT TO GO TO WAR. HE TALKS TO EVERYBODY. THEY’VE GOT TO BE PART OF THIS. WHAT HAS IRAN DONE TO SAY THEY WANT TO HAVE A LEGITIMATE CONVERSATION?>>Harris: I HAVEN’T. THEY JUST WANT BACK IN A DEAL. EUROPE IS GOT TO BE FEELING CONFLICTED.>>IT’S A BAD DEAL.>>Harris: MORE OF THE COALITION WILL HAVE TO COME ALONG BUT THEY ARE STILL IN THAT
