State of the Union Panel, Part 1

State of the Union Panel, Part 1


>>>TRUMP, LET ME START WITH YOU, LAST NIGHT YOU TOLD CNN, QUOTE, ISLAM HATES US. DID YOU MEAN ALL 1.6 MUSLIMS?>>I MEAN A LOT OF THEM. I MEAN A LOT OF THEM.>>THAT WAS DONALD TRUMP LAST MARCH GIVING HIS VIEWS ON ISLAM AND MUSLIMS WHILE THE EXECUTIVE ORDER ISSUED FRIDAY BANS CITIZENS FROM SEVEN MAJORITY MUSLIM COUNTRIES FOR 90 DAYS. TRUMP INSISTED YESTERDAY IT’S NOT A MUSLIM BAN BUT, QUOTE, EXTREME VETTING. LOTS TO DISCUSS WITH OUR PANEL, WE HAVE ANNA NOVARRO, JAN BREWER AND CNN POLITICAL COMMENTATOR BAKARI SELLERS. YOUR JOB FOR PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA WAS TO EXPLAIN THE MUSLIM WORLD TO THE WHITE HOUSE AND HELP TO EXPLAIN THE UNITED STATES TO THE WMUSLIM WORLD. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE EVENTS OF THIS PAST WEEKEND?>>WE MUST KEEP AMERICA SAFE. AND WE WANT PRESIDENT TRUMP TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN DEFEATING ISIS AND RELATED ORGANIZATIONS. BUT THE EXECUTIVE ORDER HAS A PREMISE OF 9/11. AND BY THAT RATIONALE, IT DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE. THE STRATEGY IS FLAWED. AND IT DOESN’T HAVE ANY INTELLECTUAL RIGOR. WE HAVE TO GET TO THE ACTUAL MEAT OF THE ISSUE, WHICH IS IDEAS MATTER. THEIR IDEAS HAVE NO BORDERS AND YOU CAN’T BUILT AN IDEA WALL. YOU CAN’T BAN ALL THE COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD IN WHICH THE BAD IDEAS ARE SPROUTING. SO WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHAT IS ACTUALLY TAKING PLACE, AND WE THINK ABOUT WHAT THIS IS GOING TO DO, IT REALLY TAKES AWAY FROM THE GOAL THAT HE HAS SET OUT FOR HIMSELF. IT DOESN’T HAVE THE RATIONALE THAT WE NEED IT TO. AND IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT BOTH IN THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION AND IN THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WE UNDERSTOOD THAT THE POWER TO STOP RECRUITMENT CAME FROM CIVIL SOCIETY. YOU CAN’T SET UP AN US VERSUS THEM. WE NEED TO HAVE MUSLIMS AROUND THE WORLD WORKING WITH US TO STOP RECRUITMENT. AND THE WAY TO DO THAT IS TO ENGAGE THEM. IF YOU DON’T HAVE TRUST WITH THE GOVERNMENT, YOU CAN’T ENGAGE THEM, YOU CAN’T GALVANIZE THE MOVEMENT THAT WE NEED. AND I’M AFRAID WHAT HAS HAPPENED HERE IS THAT IT HAS STOKED THE IDEA OF AN US AND THEM. IT HAS GIVEN POWER TO THE EXTREMISTS AND WILL NOT GET US WHERE WE NEED TO GO. THE MEASURE OF SUCCESS AND SERIOUSNESS OF THE TRUMP DOCTRINE ON TERRORISM REALLY WILL BE HOW SERIOUS THEY ARE WITH REGARD TO SAUDI ARABIA WHERE. THE IDEAS HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN SPROUTING FOR DECADES. SO AS WE THINK THROUGH WHAT THEY’RE DOING AND WHY THEY ARE DOING IT, THE RATIONALE DOESN’T MAKE SENSE. IT IS FLAWED. AND WE HAVE TO REALLY BE THINKING ABOUT THE LONG-TERM IMPACT. OUR ACTIONS MAKE A DIFFERENCE. OUR WORDS MAKE A DIFFERENCE. AND THE BOTTOM LINE IS WE NEED TO HAVE PARTNERS THAT CAN WORK WITH US TO STOP RECRUITMENT.>>ANNA NAVARRO, ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT THE REPUBLICANS WHO CAME OUT AGAINST THE MUSLIM BAN A YEAR AGO, THAT THIS IS A BAN ON SEVEN MAJORITY COUNTRIES, ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT REPUBLICAN OFFICIALS ARE BEING SO QUIET?>>I THINK PEOPLE ARE EXHAUSTED. I THINK THE FLURRY OF THIS WEEK HAS BEEN A DIZZYING PACE. AND SO MANY ARE SPEAKING OUT CONSISTENTLY THIS WEEK AGAINST THE CHARGE THERE WERE 3 MILLION ILLEGAL VOTERS, AGAINST THE TARIFFS AGAINST MEXICO, G EPS THE IDEA OF THE WALL, AGAINST NOT INVESTIGATING RUSSIA FOR HACKING. SO I THINK IT IS SUCH A — STEADY RAIN OF THINGS THAT THEY HAVE TO CONFRONT TRUMP ON THAT IT’S BEEN AN EMOTIONALLY EXHAUSTING WEEK. I HAVE FRIENDS TELLING ME, I DISAGREE WITH THIS. IT IS AN UN-AMERICAN EXECUTIVE ORDER. BUT I CAN’T SURVIVE POLITICALLY IF I’M CONFRONTING THE MAN EVERY DAY. D BUT THIS IS ONE AS EXHAUSTED AS THEY MAY BE, REPUBLICANS NEED TO APPEAL TO THE PRINCIPLES OF WHAT IS WRONG TO AMERICAN VALUES AND THEY NEED TO SPEAK UP. THE REPUBLICAN PARTY I GREW UP IN AS A REPUBLICAN PARTY OF FAMILY UNITY. WHAT WE SAW YESTERDAY WERE FAMILIES BEING TORN APART. WHAT WE SAW YESTERDAY WAS VIOLATIONS OF THE CONSTITUTION. WE DON’T TREAT DIFFERENT PEOPLE DIFFERENT WAYS. WE DON’T IMPOSE A RELIGIOUS TEST. AND THE FOLKS MAY WANT TO TELL US, THIS IS NOT A MUSLIM BAN. I’LL TELL YOU WHO THINKS IT’S A MUSLIM BAN, MUSLIMS THINK IT’S A MUSLIM BAN. THOSE WHO WANT A MUSLIM BAN LIKE LITTLE BOY FLYNN AND DAVID DUKE, THE FORMER KKK LEADER, ARE CELEBRATING IT AS A MUSLIM BAN. AND THOSE OF US WHO DON’T WANT A MUSLIM BAN SEE IT AS SUCH. >>GOVERNOR, WHAT IS YOUR TAKE?>>WELL, THAT WAS A LOT TO TAKE IN, ANA. >>THAT WAS A LOT OF OPINIONS. WHAT DO YOU THINK?>>I BELIEVE THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP IS DOING EXACTLY WHAT HE CAMPAIGNED ON. HE WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT. AND NOW HE’S DELIVERING THE GOOD. PEOPLE IN AMERICA WANT TO BE SECURE AND SAFE. AND WITH THE BAN, I THINK THAT IT IS PERFECTLY FINE TO PUT IT ON A PAUSE AND DO THE COMPLETE VETTING. AND WE HAVE TO ADDRESS THE ISSUE OF ALSO ALL THE OVERSTAYED VISAS. LAST YEAR ALONE IN 2015 THERE WERE 500,000 OVERSTAYED VISAS. AND 1% WERE INVESTIGATED. AND THIS CONTINUES ON AND ON AND ON. WE KNOW THAT AMERICANS WANT TO BE SAFE. AND OUR ALLEGIANCE FIRST AND FOREMOST AUGHT TO BE TO OUR CITIZENS.>>OUR CITIZENS LOOK LIKE THE ENTIRE WORLD, THOUGH.>>ABSOLUTELY THEY DO.>>AND I HAVE TO AGREE WITH GOVERNOR BREWER TO THE ONE POINT THAT DONALD TRUMP IS KEEPING CAMPAIGN PROMISES. BUT THE PROBLEM WITH THAT IS HE’S BREAKING THE PROMISES TO OUR CONSTITUTION, TO OUR FOUNDING FATHERS AND PARTNERS AROUND THE WORLD. ANA SAID IT CLEARLY, I SAW SENATOR PORTMAN SQUIRM AND TALK ABOUT SIMILAR ANTICS OF WHETHER IT IS A MUSLIM BAN OR NOT, BUT THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO FEEL PERSECUTED BY THAT. EVEN MORE, IT’S A RELIGIOUS TEST IN THERE. IF YOU ARE A RELIGIOUS MINORITY IN A MUSLIM COUNTRY, YOU SOMEHOW GET PRECEDENCE. SO WHAT WE STARTED DOWN YESTERDAY WAS MORE THAN A SLIPPERY SLOPE. I MEAN, TODAY, I FEEL LIKE I’M A MUSLIM AND REFUGEE BECAUSE DR. KING SAID INJUSTICE ANYWHERE IS A THREAT TO JUSTICE EVERYWHERE. AND I THINK THAT IS WHAT YOU’RE SEEING AROUND THE COUNTRY.>>I HAVE TO SAY — ACTUALLY, I WOULD ERADICATE — I WAS A LEGAL RESIDENT. AND THIS LAST WEEK IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR ONE REASON. FOR MANY YEARS NOW REPUBLICANS ATTACKED PRESIDENT OBAMA LEGITIMATELY SO AGAINST TAKING ACTION THROUGH EXECUTIVE ORDER. AGAINST NOT WORKING WITH CONGRESS. PARTICULARLY ON ISSUES LIKE IMMIGRATION. AND THIS WEEK IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE IT IS PRECEDENT SETTING. IT’S SETTING A TONE. AND I THINK REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS NEED TO SPEAK UP SO THEY ARE NOT RUN OVER BY THIS TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. AND SO THAT THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION WORKS WITH PEOPLE WHO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING AS OPPOSED TO PEOPLE IN THE WHITE HOUSE WHO HAVE ZERO IDEA. THEY ARE

  1. For those who think this anti Muslim ban is a good idea, who think this will keep us safe from terrorists? You are wrong. The 7 countries that are included the ban are Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen.

    The hijackers in the September 11 attacks were 19 men affiliated with al-Qaeda. 15 of the 19 were citizens of Saudi Arabia, and the others were from the United Arab Emirates (2), Egypt and Lebanon…

    Oh and guess who has businesses in those countries not named in this ban? Yes, our president…Trump Hotel Collection – hotels in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Qatar and Saudi Arabia

    These 12 people detained at JFK today were our employees who put their lives in danger by helping our troops. They have been tested and vetted for years..

    I am simply disgusted today.. as I've been every day.

    I am proud stand with my fellow New Yorkers who stand for justice and freedom. Resist.

  2. Walls being built, Division and HATE Rising. Terrorism levels RISING. Political system in chaos.
    Putin grabbed popcorn and a glass of Champagne. With so many holes and weaknesses in Trump's strategy, he is preparing for his next moves on the chess board.

  3. 3rd TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP TRUMP WALL WALL WALL WALL WALL WALL WALL WALL WALL WALL WALL WALL

  4. The fact they say that this is only ammunition for Terrorist recruiters is absolute bullshit.
    The truth they fail to convey on the Communist News Network is that it will also create a Backlash for Radicals in all these countries from the regular Muslims who will view them as the cause for this action taken in the USA.
    What we need to do is to stop placating terrorists by just removing those who want to escape and letting countries develop their own solutions to fight radical where they live…NOT potentially bringing them here to commit acts of terror and get more power and popularity.
    Trump is enforcing the LAWS THAT ALREADY EXIST… TO ad lib anything more is irresponsible and downright dangerous.

  5. PLEASE GIVE THE PEOPLE THE RIGHT TO SUE THE MEDIA FOR SLANDER AND FALSE INFORMATION !!!!
    This will cure the abuse the media is perpetrating on the masses with their brain washing style propaganda !!!!

  6. "the strategy is flawed and doesn't stand up to intellectual rigger" …my favorite quote from this panel. It's obvious Trump only has a superficial understanding of world issues…..

    Trump: Just work on building the economy and in particular real estate development projects and marketing.

  7. I reject that fact Trump is doing what he said.

    Remember: Trump said he can unite the country and he is failing miserably.

  8. Fake news . Side by side picture of the attendance at trumps first day. CNN needs to apologize and expect that this clip was a lie ! Was it a mistake or was it intentionally trying to deceive the people? Yes ,all you people that defended the lie got owned and will continue to tell you stop believing the lies. The main problem with this is the fact that these lies were seen around the word as true. Now if they come back and we say deceive you, this message is likely to be seen only an 1/8 or less of the people that originally watched it. This is the main goal of the deception in the first place. It is impossible to take it back. The damage was done. Please people, wake up to the truth with the rest of us. Truth before honor.

  9. Kevin Anderson what is wrong with you,they are saying facts not alternative facts,if the truth is undesirable and repugnant to you then I suggest you stay in the rabbit hole,what is wrong with telling facts.

  10. if it was a muslim ban there would be 58 counties on the list. The countries that were banned are the ones that ISIS members are running too.

  11. "Do complete vetting" hmm… He didn't even vet his cabinet! All those billionaires with ZERO experience in running the departments they were nominated for! Jesus. The hypocrisy and lunacy.

  12. THESE SAME DUMBASSES WHO PROTEST WERE THE SAME PEOPLE SAYING 'KEEP THEM OUT' AFTER THE 911 ATTACKS SMH NOW 'LET THEM IN'???? DUMB FUCKS

  13. like the first lady that spoke said we need Muslims in this country that are good to tell us where the bad ones are and what they're doing they know their people they know where the groups are at we need them to work with us to get rid of the bad ones. doesn't that makes sense

  14. The 7 countries determined in the ban were brought forth by the Obama Administration and US Intelligence and approved by congress at the time for being the most unstable terror sponsored countries. Shortly, the Obama Administration determined these countries, which did not include Saudi Arabia, UAE, or Egypt. It was actually expanded from 4 countries to include 7 countries (the ones in the ban).

  15. Ana Navarro is a Republican? Yes CNN, we all believe that. I think it would be more believable if you said she was a retired soap star.

  16. Farrah said that the ban has no intellectual rigor. Well Farrah, when has intellect ever played a role in republican decision making? Their constituents are under educated and don't care for such liberal non sense such as facts or reality.

  17. YOu all are just ANTI Trump – THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT OBAMA DID time after time. That was his list of countries. And NO you dumb ass woman in the beginning, this is not how he will deal with the problem in its entirety. Its just until they SEE what is going on and what measures has to be taken. REMEMBER ISIS is Obama and Hillary's creation. A lot will have to be done. Give the man some slack, let him do his job – JUDGE the results. YOU are not in power He is doing what almost every president has done and has the right to. The US constitution is FOR AMERICANS.

  18. it's called "Extreme Vetting" so get use to it. and our President is enforcing all Immigration Law's by the book. and Anna Navarro is Butt Hurt and needs a band-aid.she can not get use to the fact that Donald Trump is President.

  19. Jake Tapper and Anna Navarro are 100 % Democrat no matter what Trump does in their eye's Trump will never do anything right. They have not had one positive news cast on him that i know of CNN is a joke.

  20. Anna Navarro has to have the most annoying voice in the world she is rude, cuts people off and thinks she knows it all she is 100 % and i mean 100 % Demo-rat. TRUMP won deal with it cry babies.

  21. Yong Soo Chang. None of my employees were detained. Kinda weird how all you Trump haters always want it your way and don't care what the rest of the country wants. I am from Upstate NY also and I don't stand with you on this at all. This country voted in Trump because of his business experience, It's a shame he has some of them where you don't approve, but it isn't your business it's his. A lot of Saudis have property and businesses here also and guess who knew. Every one but you?

  22. Sore losers it sounds like! Anna is a fake, she's a fake Republican, fake conservative and fake what ever else she claims she is! MAGA Y'ALL! Shout out from TX!
