‘The Five’ reacts to Trump sparring with press at G7


>>Dana: A CONTENTIOUS G7 SUMMIT. CHINA HAS HAD AGREEMENTS WITH WORLD LEADERS AND ALSO DEFENDING HIS TRADE POLICIES EARLIER TODA TODAY.>>CAN I JUST CLARIFY SOMETHING YOU SAID QUESTION MARK YOU MENTIONED EARLIER TODAY — LET ME DO THE CLARIFICATION AND THEN I’LL GET TO THE QUESTION. YOU TALKED ABOUT — WHY WE REPEATING WHAT SOME PEOPLE SEE IS A CLEAR LIE?>>WAS ANNEXED DURING PRESIDENT OBAMA’S TERM. SPEAK OF THE BACK AND FORTH ON THE CHANGING OF STATEMENTS FROM YOURSELF SO THAT — SPEAK I’M SORRY GOOD IT’S THE WAY AND NEGOTIATE. THIS HAS TO BE A DEAL THAT’S BETTER FOR US AND IF IS NOT BETTER, LET’S NOT DO BUSINESS TOGETHER. SPEECH IS BACK AT HOME, DIMOCK HAS BEEN CRITICIZED FOR ATTACKING DRUM ON THE ECONOMY WHILE HE WAS IN FRANCE.>>HE IS TOTALLY HE’S DESTABILIZING THE ENTIRE WORLD ECONOMY.>>DONALD TRUMP HAS NO PLAN FOR THIS IS JUST CHAOS AND OUR TRADE WAR BY TWEET IS HARMFUL TO THE U.S. ECONOMY.>>THE WAY THIS PRESIDENT HAS BEEN USING TARIFFS, HE’S BEEN USING THEM LIKE A MEAT CLEAVER. MAYBE THE BETTER WHERE IT IS A TWEAK LEVER.>>THE CURRENT STRATEGY, I’M NOT EVEN SURE YOU CAN CALL IT A STRATEGY.>>I THINK THE PRESIDENT HAS BOTCHED THIS THING.>>THE PRESIDENT WAS FORCED TO DEFEND HIMSELF. A REPORT CLAIMING HE WAS USING NUCLEAR BONDS TO PREVENT A HURRICANE FROM THE U.S. CREATED WE THINK THIS IS A REALLY IMPORTANT TOPIC. YOU WANT TO COMMENT ON IT ESCHENBACH>>I THINK PETE AGREES, THEY LOVE THE IDEA OF NUKING A HURRICANE. IT’S NOT SURPRISING, OKAY, NONE OF THIS STORY IS SURPRISING OR ALARMING AT ALL. TRUMP IS ALWAYS AN INQUISITIVE OUT-OF-THE-BOX THINKER. EVERY FIVE SECONDS HE’S ASKING A WHAT IF TYPE OF QUESTION AND THE MEDIA TURNS IT INTO A FRONT-PAGE STORY AND HE IS LIKE I DIDN’T MEAN IT. I DIDN’T MEAN IT. BUT IT’S JUST A QUESTION AND SOMETIMES HIS COUNTERINTUITIVE IDEAS WERE CREATED PEOPLE DYNAMITE OIL FLYERS, RIGHT? I DID SOME RESEARCH. PEOPLE FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE, THEY ARE CALLED BACKFIRES. ALSO, IT NEVER RAINS ON RUSSIAN PARADES. WHY’S THAT? CLOUD SEEDING. THEY INDUCE THE RAIN BEFORE THE PARADE. SO THESE CRAZY IDEAS HAD TO COME FROM 70 WITH A BIG IDEA LIKE LET’S BOMB THAT HURRICANE.>>Dana: WHAT I THINK IS ALARMING IS THAT SOMEBODY WROTE THIS DOWN IN A MEETING IN A NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL MEETING AND GAVE IT TO THE MEDIA BECAUSE THAT MAKES THEM FEEL IMPORTANT LIKE THEY WERE TRYING TO EMBARRASS THE PRESIDENT.>>Charles: HE SHOULD BE PROUD OF THAT IDEA.>>Juan: SOMETIMES THOSE SHOW KNOCKS ME OUT OF MY SEAT. THE TWO OF YOU ARE SAYING THAT YOU BELIEVE THAT HE DID SAY THIS?>>Charles: I DO. I DO.>>Dana: I WOULD — AN OUTCOME OF THE PRESIDENT SAYS IT’S FAKE NEWS AND THAT HE NEVER SAID IT. HE SAID HE NEVER SAID IT AND I CAN IMAGINE THAT HE WOULD’VE ASKED A QUESTION IN A NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL MEETING, SURE. FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN — I MEMBER WHAT AND 2008 AND THERE WAS AN ASTEROID HEADED TOWARD EARTH AND IT WAS LIKE WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO.>>Pete: KNOCK IT OUT WITH A HURRICANE. THE BOMB CAUSES THE HURRICANE TO GO TOWARDS THE ASTEROID.>>Dana: WHICH THEN PROTECTS THE NUCLEAR WEAPONS?>>Pete: BREAKS INTO PIECES AND DESTROYS THE REST OF ISIS.>>Charles: I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD GOOGLE HOW DO YOU NUKE A HURRICANE.>>Juan: I THINK THEY SHOULD NUKE MY HEAD BECAUSE IT’S BEGINNING TO EXPLODE.>>Charles: THIS WAS FASCINATING TO WATCH FOR THIS GUY IS THE AMERICAN BULL IN THE EURO CHINA SHOP AND HE SAYS I HAVE BIG IDEAS, AND PUTTING AMERICA FIRST, YOU ARE ALL GLOBALIST, I DON’T CARE. AND IF YOU LOOK AT CANADA, FORMALLY OF U.K., FRANCE, GERMANY, ITALY, MANY OF THEM ARE FRONTALLY UNSERIOUS PEOPLE ABOUT THE REAL PROBLEMS WE ARE FACING IN THE WORLD. I JUST WANT TO GO THERE AND TALK ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE.>>Dana: THIS IS THE FOREIGN MINISTER OF RON AND HE BASICALL BASICALLY — McCONE HAS HIM ON THE TABLE — COAT BUT THE PHOTOGRAPH THAT THEY LAKE IS AT A TABLE AND THEY’RE ALL LAUGHING ABOUT IT AND THIS GUY IS WITH A GOVERNMENT THAT TERRORIZES INNOCENT PEOPLE.>>I LOVE THAT YOU POINTED TO ME TO MAKE SURE THAT I KNOW WE WERE TALKING ABOUT. I DON’T KNOW. I’M FOLLOWING. BUT THE TRUTH IS THAT I AGREE. I THINK IT REALLY DISRUPTED THE WHOLE PURPOSE OF THIS ENTIRE MEETING HERE DO I THINK IT’S A GOOD THING TO OPEN THE DISCUSSIONS THERE AND THAT McCONE IS TRYING TO FACILITATE THIS CONVERSATION QUESTION MARC SHORT. BUT PRESIDENT TRUMP GOT OUT OF THE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL BECAUSE HE DIDN’T BELIEVE IT WAS A GOOD DEAL. HE HAD HAD TO PUT FORTH WHAT HE THINKS IS ANY CLEAR IDEA BUT I DON’T THINK HE IS IN A RUSH TO HAVE THESE CONVERSATIONS BUT HE HAS SAID THAT HE IS OPEN TO IT BUT HE’S NOT IN A RUSH BUT HE REALLY WANTS TO RUN THE FIELD A LITTLE BIT MORE BUT I DO THINK MEDICATIONS GET PAID I DON’T THINK THIS WEEKEND WAS A GOOD TIME FOR THEM TO REALLY FOCUS ON THAT.>>Charles: LET ME FOLLOW-UP HER LET ME FIRST SAY WITH REGARDS TO NUKING A HURRICANE, YOU HAVE BLOWN MY MIND. I MEAN, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THERE WOULD BE DAMAGE TO HUMAN BEINGS FROM THE FALLOUT FROM A NUCLEAR SLIPPAGE, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT RIGHT? THIS IS HOW YOU DO CLIMATE CHANGE AS WELL. THIS WAS A BAD WEEKEND FOR THE PRESIDENT IN TERMS OF DEALING WITH THE NUMBER ONE ISSUE, PETE, NUMBER ONE ISSUE BUT WE’VE GOT A TRADE WAR GOING ON WITH CHINA THAT NEGATIVELY IS IMPACTING THE GLOBAL ECONOMY.>>Pete: IT WAS A GREAT WEEK AND FOR HIM ON THAT.>>Juan: DIDN’T GET ANY IDEA. HE DIDN’T GET ANY ALLIES. HE DIDN’T GET OUR ALLIES TO SAY WE WILL JOIN YOU MR. PRESIDENT AND PUT PRESSURE ON THE CHINESE IN STEAD. HE SKIPS THE MEETING ON CLIMATE CHANGE — GRACE THAT I WAS GOING, BUT I WAS LATE. NO, YOU ARE GOING FOR YOU JUST GAVE UP MR. PRESIDENT. SPEECH YOU DON’T McCONE DID SAY THAT THE FRENCH POSITION WAS TO AGREE ON THE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY.>>Juan: BUT IN OTHER WORDS, IF YOU GET A DEAL, IF HE WAS ABLE TO EXERT MORE PRESSURE BY BRINGING ALLIES TO THE TABLE — HE DIDN’T DO THAT. I THINK HE DIDN’T DO THAT. I DON’T THINK HE DEALT WITH THE SITUATION IN TERMS OF THE IRRADIANCE OR THE SYRIANS, A SIDE WHICH CONTINUES TALK ABOUT ISIS, ISIS IS GROWING BY OUR OWN EYES. YOU DON’T BLAME THE PRESIDENT.>>Charles: I’M JUST GLAD HE SAID THAT CHINA SHOWDOWN WAS THE MOST SIGNIFICANT ISSUE WE ARE FACING ARE NOT CLIMATE CHANGE BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT I THINK. MOST PEOPLE AREN’T EVEN PLAYING ON HIS LEVEL AND YET HE’S GOING TO DO TOUGH THINGS. TO PETE’S POINT, WHENEVER YOU ARE IN AN EPISODE OF THE CHUMP SHOW, NO MATTER HOW MANY NUMBER OF VARIABLES THERE ARE, IT’S ALWAYS TRUMP VERSUS X, Y, AND Z WHERE THERE ARE HURRICANES OR JOHN MARK OF THE MEDIA BUT NO MATTER THE SIZE OF THE VARIABLES, IT’S ALWAYS ONE TO ONE. IT’S HIM AND EVERYONE ELSE.>>Juan: AND EVERYONE ELSE WANTS RUSSIA AND THE G8.>>Dana: HE MADE A COMMENT ABOUT ATTENTION PEOPLE ARE RUNNING WITH IT. IT IS NOT SAYING TO LET THEM BACK IN AND ATTACK. I JUST SEE AT AGAIN THAT’S HIM
