  • >> WHAT WE HAVE TO DO IS WE

  • HAVE TO STOP BEING OBSESSED OVER

  • IMPEACHMENT, WHICH UNFORTUNATELY

  • STRIKES MANY AMERICANS LIKE A

  • BALL GAME WHERE YOU KNOW WHAT

  • THE SCORE IS GOING TO BE AND

  • START ACTUALLY DIGGING IN AND

  • SOLVING THE PROBLEMS THAT GOT

  • DONALD TRUMP ELECTED IN THE

  • FIRST PLACE.

  • WE HAVE TO TAKE EVERY

  • OPPORTUNITY TO PRESENT A NEW

  • POSITIVE VISION FOR THE COUNTRY,

  • A NEW WAY FORWARD TO HELP BEAT

  • HIM IN 2020 BECAUSE MAKE NO

  • MISTAKE, HE'LL BE THERE AT THE

  • BALLOT BOX FOR US TO DEFEAT.

  • NEIL: THIS IS THE ONLY TIME

  • DONALD TRUMP SAID I AGREE WITH

  • SOMETHING A DEMOCRATIC

  • PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE SAID AND

  • THAT CAUSED SHOCK WAVES IN THE

  • LAST PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE, ONE

  • THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE SAID ANDREW

  • YANG WON HANDILY, AT LEAST

  • CHALLENGING PARTY CONSENSUS ON A

  • WHOLE HOST OF THINGS INCLUDING

  • IMPEACHMENT.

  • HE JOINS ME RIGHT NOW.

  • ANDREW, GOOD TO HAVE YOU.

  • >> IT'S GREAT TO BE HERE, THANK

  • YOU FOR HAVING ME, NEIL.

  • NEIL: THE REACTION YOU'RE

  • GETTING IS SOMETHING THAT'S

  • PICKED UP CONSIDERABLY SINCE YOU

  • AND I SAT DOWN FIRST AFTER YOU

  • JOINED THE JOIST.

  • RACE.

  • >> I'M PLEASED, I'M THRILLED.

  • I FELT THERE'S AN APPETITE FOR A

  • DIFFERENT APOACH TO POLITICS.

  • I'M NOT A POLITICIAN, I'M A

  • PARENT AND AND--

  • >> WE SHOULD EXPLAIN, YOU'RE AN

  • ENTREPRENEUR SO YOU'RE NOT KEEN

  • ON SOME OF THE IDEAS THAT YOUR

  • OPPONENTS HAVE LIKE A WEALTH

  • TAX.

  • WHERE DO YOU STAND?

  • >> YEAH, I THINK A LOT OF THE

  • IDEAS COMING OUT OF THE PARTY

  • COULD USE SOME REEXAMINATION.

  • NEIL: LIKE WHAT?

  • >> WELL, THE WEALTH TAX EXAMPLE

  • YOU RAISED, THE FACT IS,

  • GERMANY, FRANCE, DENMARK,

  • SWEDEN, ALL TRIED A WEALTH TAX

  • AND REPEALED IT BECAUSE IT

  • DIDN'T WORK.

  • IF YOU'RE THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY

  • WE SHOULD BE PUTTING FORWARD

  • IDEAS THAT WE HAVE CONFIDENCE IN

  • THAT WILL WORK BECAUSE THEY'VE

  • WORKED IN OTHER PLACES, NOT

  • IDEAS THAT WE'VE SEEN PROBLEMS

  • WITH IN OTHER COUNTRIES.

  • NEIL: THE RAP AGAINST YOUR

  • PARTY, AND IT MAY BE LED BY THE

  • MOST VOCAL CRITICS, THAT IT

  • HATES RICH PEOPLE.

  • BERNIE MARCUS, THE CO-FOUNDER OF

  • HOME DEPOT WAS ON WITH ME

  • YESTERDAY AND RAILING AGAINST

  • THAT SENTIMENT FROM ELIZABETH

  • WARREN.

  • I WANT YOU TO REACT TO THAT.

  • >> SURE.

  • >> LOOK AT HER, HOW MUCH MONEY

  • IS SHE WORTH TODAY AND WHAT THE

  • HELL DID SHE DO TO GET THAT

  • MONEY?

  • DID SHE WORK THE WAY I WORKED?

  • I DOUBT IT VERY MUCH.

  • NEIL: WHAT DID YOU THINK OF

  • THAT?

  • >> I THINK THAT IF THE

  • DEMOCRATIC PARTY DOES ANTAGONIZE

  • ANYONE WHO HAS MADE A CERTAIN

  • AMOUNT OF MONEY IN OUR SOCIETY,

  • TO ME, YOU SHOULD BE PRAISING

  • PEOPLE WHO SUCCEED BECAUSE MANY

  • OF THEM WORKED VERY, VERY HARD

  • TO GET WHERE THEY ARE.

  • AND THE QUESTION IS, HOW DO WE

  • BALANCE THE ECONOMY SO IT WORKS

  • FOR MORE PEOPLE, FOR MORE OF US.

  • THE TOUGH PART, AMERICANS CAN

  • SENSE THAT THE AMERICAN DREAM IS

  • SLIPPING AWAY FOR MORE AND MORE

  • OF US.

  • IF YOU WERE BORN IN THIS COUNTRY

  • IN THE 1940'S, 93% CHANCE YOU'D

  • DO BETTER FOR YOUR PARENTS.

  • IN THE '90S, A 50-50 SHOT AND

  • IT'S DECLINING FAST.

  • THAT'S WHAT WE HAVE TO FIX.

  • FIXING THAT DOES NOT NECESSARILY

  • MEAN TRYING TO DEMONIZE ANYONE

  • WHO HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL.

  • NEIL: ALL RIGHT, BUT WHEN YOU

  • LOOK AT DONALD TRUMP AND YOU

  • LOOK THE AT FACT THAT HE TALKS

  • ABOUT THE STOCK MARKET, TALKS

  • ABOUT JOB GAINS AND THEN I HEAR

  • CANDIDATES TALKING ABOUT THE

  • FACT THAT, YOU KNOW, THIS IS AN

  • AWFUL ECONOMY, FOR A LOT OF

  • PEOPLE THERE'S A DISCONNECT

  • THERE.

  • I KNOW YOU DRAW A DISTINCTION

  • BETWEEN COMPANIES MIGHT BE

  • MAKING MONEY HAND OVER FIST, BUT

  • THAT DOESN'T MEAN YOU HAVE FEWER

  • BANKRUPTCIES OR FEWER

  • AMERICANS--

  • IT'S A TOUGH SELL.

  • >> WHEN YOU REFLECT BACK TO THE

  • DONALD TRUMP, FAKE NEWS AND THAT

  • AMERICANS WERE LEAVING THE WORK

  • FORCE.

  • NEIL: IS THAT TO SAY THE GAINS

  • WE'RE HAVING AREN'T REAL?

  • >> THERE ARE GAINS IN THE

  • TOPLINE MEASUREMENTS, BUT THEY

  • DON'T CORRESPOND TO THE

  • DAY-TO-DAY EXPERIENCE OF MANY

  • MILLIONS AMERICANS AROUND THE

  • COUNTRY AND I SEE THIS FIRSTHAND

  • WHEN I CAMPAIGN.

  • WHEN YOU SAY THE STOCK MARKET IS

  • DOING WELL, THIS MIGHT BE

  • DIFFERENT FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE

  • WATCHING YOUR PROGRAM, FRANKLY.

  • BECAUSE THE TOP 20% OF AMERICAN

  • HOUSE OLDS HOLD 92% OF STOCK

  • MARKET WEALTH AND BOTTOM 50%

  • HOLD ESSENTIALLY ZERO.

  • IF I SAY HEY, GREAT NEWS, THE

  • STOCK MARKET IS UP.

  • FOR HALF OF AMERICANS IT'S

  • IRRELEVANT.

  • NEIL: FOR HALF OF AMERICANS IT

  • IS NOT.

  • >> YES.

  • NEIL: AND AT FOX BUSINESS IF YOU

  • DON'T GET, YOU SHOULD DEMAND.

  • IF YOU SAY THAT, YOU'RE RIGHT.

  • YOU'RE FOCUSING ON THE HALF WHO

  • ARE NOT, BUT OBVIOUSLY.

  • HALF ARE.

  • THEY'RE LIKING WHAT THEY'RE

  • SAYING.

  • >> IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF STOCKS,

  • YOU'RE HAPPY WHEN PRICES GO UP.

  • THE BOTTOM--

  • AND WE'VE GOT TO BALANCE THE

  • ECONOMY FOR MORE AMERICAN AND

  • THAT DOESN'T GET IN THE TOPLINE

  • MEASUREMENTS.

  • NEIL: YOU'RE THE SON OF

  • IMMIGRANTS FROM TAIWAN.

  • >> YES.

  • NEIL: AND I REPORT A LOT ON

  • CHINA, WHAT IT'S DOING.

  • IF YOU WERE TO BECOME PRESIDENT

  • OF THE UNITED STATES, HOW WOULD

  • YOU DEAL WITH THE CHINESE?

  • OF COURSE, NO FANS OF THIS

  • COUNTRY EVER MAKING OVER TO

  • TAIWAN.

  • THAT WOULD BE TRICKY, WOULDN'T

  • IT?

  • >> OUR JOB HAS TO BE TO

  • OUTCOMPETE THE CHINESE,

  • PARTICULARLY IN ARTIFICIAL

  • INTELLIGENCE THAT COULD WELL

  • DEFINE THE NEXT CENTURY.

  • ONE STORY I LIKE TO SHARE, MORE

  • PEOPLE IN CHINA WATCHED

  • ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE BEAT THE

  • GAME THAN THE SUPER BOWL.

  • FOR THEM ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

  • IS THE SUPER BOWL.

  • THE GOVERNMENT IS ACTING

  • ACCORDINGLY, PUTTING TENS OF

  • BILLIONS TO WORK.

  • OUR JOBS HAS TO BE OKAY, WE SEE

  • THE GAME, WE CAN'T LET CHINESE

  • LEAPFROG US IN AI, WE HAVE TO

  • REMAIN THE LEADER.

  • IF WE DO THAT THEY'LL BE MUCH

  • BETTER ABLE TO PUSH OUR VALUES

  • AND POSITIONS TO THE CHINESE

  • MORE SUCCESSFULLY.

  • >> WOULD YOU BE ANY MORE PRO

  • LEVELLING THE PLAYING FIELD AND

  • RECOGNIZING TAIWAN ON EQUAL

  • FOOTING WITH CHINA?

  • >> I HAVE FAMILY IN TAIWAN AND I

  • THINK THAT THE STATUS QUO IS

  • SOMETHING THAT WE SHOULD

  • PRESERVE, WHICH IS THAT IT'S

  • WORKING WELL ON BOTH SIDES OF

  • THE STRAIT AND THERE'S NO REASON

  • FOR THAT TO CHANGE IN MY VIEW.

  • >> YOUR PRESIDENTIAL RUN, YOU

  • TALK ABOUT THINGS THAT OTHER

  • CANDIDATES DON'T TALK ABOUT, THE

  • IMPEACHMENT FOCUS, FOR EXAMPLE.

  • IS IT THAT--

  • YOU'RE NOT SAYING IT WAS A

  • MISTAKE, BUT THAT THE OBSESSION

  • OVER IT IS AND MAYBE THE PARTY

  • HEARD YOU OR NANCY PELOSI AND

  • OTHERS, BY DEMONSTRATING THEY

  • COULD WALK AND CHEW GUM AT THE

  • SAME TIME.

  • THEY MUST BE WORRIED THAT WHAT

  • YOU'RE SAYING IS RIGHT.

  • >> I'M NOT SURE THAT IT'S ALL

  • ME.

  • I'VE SAID ON THE DEBATE STAGE

  • THAT IT STRIKES MANY AMERICANS

  • LIKE A BALL GAME YOU KNOW THE

  • OUTCOME.

  • NEIL: AND DOES IT AFFECT A

  • DELAY--

  • .

  • I THINK THAT MANY AMERICANS HAVE

  • OPINIONS WHAT THE PRESIDENT DID

  • AND WHETHER IT RISES TO THE

  • LEVEL OF IMPEACHMENT.

  • NEIL: AND YOU THINK HE SHOULD BE

  • IMPEACHED.

  • YEAH, I THINK THAT DELAYING AID

  • TO A FOREIGN LEADER IS BEYOND

  • THE PALE AND IMPEACHMENT IS THE

  • REMEDY.

  • AT THE SAME TIME WE HAVE TO FACE

  • FACTS THAT IMPEACHMENT IS

  • UNLIKELY TO SUCCEED WITHOUT 20

  • REPUBLICAN SENATORS HAVING A

  • CHANGE OF HEART OR A CHANGE OF

  • MIND.

  • AND SO, THE MOST LIKELY OUTCOME

  • IS DONALD TRUMP SAYING TOTAL

  • VINDICATION, TOTAL EXONERATION

  • IN TWO-MONTHS OR SO AND THOSE

  • ARE TWO MONTHS THAT WE COULD

  • HAVE BEEN USING TO MAKE A

  • POSITIVE CASE TO THE AMERICAN

  • PEOPLE ABOUT SOLVING THE

  • PROBLEMS IN OUR COMMUNITIES THAT

  • IN MY VIEW HELPED GET DONALD

  • TRUMP ELECTED IN THE FIRST
