Trump clashes with liberal leaders during California trip


THIS IS “THE FIVE.” MUSICAL MEDICAL>>Juan: IT’S AP MUSICAL MEDICAL>>Juan: IT’S AC MUSICAL MEDICAL>>Juan: IT’S AA MUSICAL MEDICAL>>Juan: IT’S AH MUSICAL MEDICAL>>Juan: IT’S AI MUSICAL MEDICAL>>Juan: IT’S AN CALIFORNIA. THE PRESIDENT VISITING THE LIBERAL STRONGHOLD AND HAVING MAJOR DISAGREEMENTS WITH ITS LEADERS. THE PRESIDENT SETTING OFF LEGAL ACTIVISTS AFTER RAISING MILLIONS IN THE STATE. OUTSIDE ONE OF THE FUND-RAISERS IN BEVERLY HILLS. THIS HAPPENS AFTER HOLLYWOOD CELEBRITIES THREATENED TO OUT HIS DONORS. THREATEN TO ATTACK CITIES THERE SAYING “WE CAN’T LET LOS ANGELES DESTROY THEMSELVES BY ALLOWING WHAT’S HAPPENING.” THERE ARE POLICEMEN WHO ARE GETTING SICK. THEY ARE ACTUALLY SICK. THEY ARE GOING TO THE HOSPITAL HERE AND WE LET THAT HAPPEN. AND EARLIER TODAY, TO SET ITS OWN AUTO EMISSION STANDARDS. LET ME BEGIN WITH YOU. AUTO EMISSION STANDARDS. I WOULD THINK THAT MOST CONSERVATIVES WOULD SAY THAT’S A STATES RIGHTS ISSUES.>>Emily: I THINK PART OF HIS ARGUMENTS, WHICH I FIRMLY SUPPORT, THE ABILITY NOW FOR THE MARKET TO SET PRICES RATHER THAN THE STATE TO DO IT IN KIND OF THIS MANUFACTURED WAY. IF I CAN SPEAK FOR A SECOND TO ON HIS DISAGREEMENT “WITH THOSE LIBERAL LEADERS” HE’S EXACTLY EXACTLY RIGHT. THERE WAS A LETTER THAT GOVERNORS SEND TO TRUMP ON BEHALF OF MOST OF THE MAYORS. HE SAID IT WAS A DECADE OLD PROBLEM. TO INCREASE THE VALUE OF THE VOUCHERS. I WOULD BE SAYING, WHERE IS MY TAXPAYER MONEY THAT I GAVE YOU LAST YEAR? WHERE IS THE ADDITIONAL BILLION DOLLARS IT WAS JUST BUDGETED FOR MY TAX DOLLARS? WHERE IS THAT GOING ON DOMINIC NOW? THEY ARE ARGUING WITH THE PRESIDENT SAYING THAT HE IS NOT INTERESTED IN FIXING HOMELESSNESS. EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE SPENDING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. IT WILL START AN EPIDEMIC IN THAT STATE.>>Juan: WILL GO TO HOMELESSNESS, BECAUSE THERE IS SO MUCH. TRUMP IS IN CALIFORNIA. GO RIGHT AHEAD.>>Dana: THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR A LONG TIME. CALIFORNIA, AS YOU MIGHT REMEMBER, YOU ARE A LITTLE OLDER.>>Greg: AM I? 53.>>Dana: IT’S AMAZING. [LAUGHTER]>>Greg: WHAT SURGERY CAN DO.>>Dana: YOU’RE GOING TO PUT UP WITH THAT? [LAUGHTER]>>Dana: IN CALIFORNIA HAS LONG HAD AIR QUALITY ISSUES. THEY WERE GIVEN PERMISSION TO DEAL WITH THEIR AIR QUALITY ISSUES, MEANING, POLLUTION. REMEMBER HOW BROWN IT USED TO BE IN LOS ANGELES PEERED WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP IS TALKING ABOUT IS ABOUT GREENHOUSE GASES. ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE. CLIMATE CHANGE DOES NOT JUST AFFECT CALIFORNIA. THAT IS LIKE A CARBON GOES, ONE MOLECULE GOES ALL THE WAY AROUND THE WORLD IN SEVEN DAYS THERE AND SO, –>>Greg: OH, WOW.>>YOU LIKE THAT FACT QUESTION MUST BE ONE THAT’S AN AMAZING FACT.>>Dana: YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO DICTATE THE REST OF THE WORLD, WHILE THE REST OF THE COUNTRY’S EMISSIONS WHEN IT COMES TO SAFETY AND MILES PER GALLON, JUST BECAUSE OF CLIMATE CHANGE. THAT’S MORE OF A UNIVERSAL THING. I THINK IT GOT A LITTLE BIT OUT OF WHACK. IT’S JUST NOT ABOUT AIR QUALITY. YOU CAN STILL DO THINGS IN TERMS OF POLLUTION. OTHER CITIES HAVE DONE THAT.>>Juan: JESSE, WHAT YOU SEE THOUGH IS THAT 66% OF AMERICANS OPPOSE THE PRESIDENT. FUEL EFFICIENCY STANDARDS IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA, 66% OF CALIFORNIANS SUPPORT THEIR OWN STANDARDS. THE CAR COMPANIES ARE SAYING, WE ARE WILLING TO GO ALONG WITH CALIFORNIA, BECAUSE WE SEE THE ADVENT OF ELECTRIC CARS, GETTING CARS TO MOVE.>>Jesse: THE CAR COMPANIES WANT A UNIFORM STANDARD. HE HASN’T STOPPED IT. HE’S JUST STOPPED IT FROM GROWING TO A UNIFORM HEIGHT WHICH ACTUALLY CAN KILL PEOPLE. IF YOU MAKE IT LIKE 58-55 MILES PER GALLON OR WHATEVER, YOU ARE CREATING THESE VERY, VERY LIGHT, COSTLY CARS. YOU GET INTO AN ACCIDENT WITH A CAR LIKE THAT, THERE’S MORE PEOPLE THAT DIE. CARS ARE GOING TO BE SAFER, BECAUSE THEY ARE GOING TO BE STRONGER AND THEY’RE JUST GOING TO BE A LITTLE MORE AFFORDABLE FOR REGULAR MIDDLE-CLASS AMERICANS. I THINK THAT’S FINE. IN TERMS OF THE HOMELESSNESS SITUATION, CALIFORNIA WANTS TO BE A REPUBLIC. THEY IGNORE FEDERAL MARRIAGE LAW, FEDERAL DRUG LAWS. THEY ARE ALWAYS IGNORING THE FEDERAL LAW. THEN, ALL OF A SUDDEN THEY HAVE THIS HOMELESS CRISIS, AND THEY SAY, HEY FEDS, CAN WE HAVE SOME OF YOUR MONEY TO FIX THIS? DEMOCRATS CONTROL EVERY LEVEL OF GOVERNMENT, SO WHY AREN’T THEY DOING ANYTHING ABOUT A QUESTION MARK SCOTT ADAMS RETORTED A VERY NICE ARTICLE THE OTHER DAY AND IT SAYS, WHY CALIFORNIA KEEPS MAKING HOMELESSNESS WORSE. A NUMBER OF REASONS. THEY HAVE NO MANDATORY TREATMENT IF SOMEONE IS RUNNING AROUND LIKE CRAZY, A LUNATIC, THEY CAN’T HELP THOSE PEOPLE. AND THEY SCREWED UP THEIR HOUSES. OTHER WARM WEATHER STATES LIKE ARIZONA, HAS LESS TAX REVENUE THERE THEY DON’T HAVE THIS PROBLEM, BECAUSE THEY HAVE STRONG OVERSIGHT. THE LONG ENFORCEMENT. THEY COORDINATE WITH THEM. THEY DON’T LET DRUG ADDICT, CRAZY PEOPLE ROAMED THE STREETS AND KEEP COMING IN AND OUT OF PRISON. SO, IF YOU LOOK AT THE WAY THEY’VE MISMANAGED THIS, THINK ABOUT HOW THEY’VE MISMANAGED THE HIGH-SPEED RAIL? REMEMBER THE STRAIN THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO GO FROM SAN FRANCISCO TO LOS ANGELES? IT WAS SUPPOSED TO TAKE TEN YEARS. WE WERE GOING TO DO IT UNDER THREE HOURS. NOW, THEY HAVE A COST OVERRUN OF $44 MILLION, 13 YEARS IN ADDITION TO THE TEN YEARS IT’S GOING TO TAKE. AND NOW, IT’S GOING TO TAKE OVER THREE HOURS TO GET TO AND FOR ALL. THEY’VE BARELY LAY DOWN ANY TRUCK EITHER. SO, IF WE CAN’T EVEN DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT, NO WONDER THEY CAN’T FIX THE HOMELESS PROBLEM.>>Dana: HOW CAN YOU CITE TO SCOTT ADAMS FOR A RETWEET AND NOT GIVE CREDIT TO THE GUY WHO WROTE THE ARTICLE? [LAUGHTER] SPEAKER THANK YOU. SO, GREG. LET’S START WITH HOMELESSNESS.>>Greg: RIGHT.>>Juan: I THINK PRESIDENT TRUMP LIKES THIS, BECAUSE HE LIKES TO GO AFTER DEMOCRATS WHO RUN BIG CITIES. THE ONE RIGHT.>>Juan: AGAINST DEMOCRATIC RON OR LIBERAL. HE’S NOT DOING THIS IN KENTUCKY OR WEST VIRGINIA.>>Greg: HE’S DOING A LOT WITH THE OPIATE THING. WHETHER OR NOT I ACTUALLY AGREE WITH SOME OF THE THINGS HE’S DOING. SO WHAT. SO WHAT IF THIS IS A POLITICAL STUNT QUESTION WORKS SERIOUSLY. SO WHAT. IF A POLITICAL STUNT RESULT IN SAVING THE LIVES OF A LOT OF PEOPLE, GETTING PEOPLE OFF THE STREET, GETTING PEOPLE INTO TREATMENT, I SAY, LET’S HAVE MORE POLITICAL STUNTS. I’M FOR POLITICAL STUNTS IF THEY ACTUALLY SOLVE PROBLEMS. BUT WHAT’S INTERESTING TO ME IS HOW DO YOU GET SUCH NEGLECT TO BE ACCEPTABLE FOR SO LONG? BECAUSE YOU LIVE IN A HUGE STATE WHERE THE RICH NEVER HAVE TO SEE THE POOR. THIS IS THE ULTIMATE INEQUALITY. THE RICH NEVER HAVE TO GO DOWNTOWN. THEY DON’T TAKE THE SUBWAY. I DON’T KNOW ANYBODY WHO TAKES THE SUBWAY AND ALLIE. BEING THE GOVERNMENT G BEING THE GOVERNMENT V BEING THE GOVERNMENT R BEING THE GOVERNMENT O BEING THE GOVERNMENT R BEING THE GOVERNMENT I BEING THE GOVERNMENT N BEING THE GOVERNMENT C BEING THE GOVERNMENT L BEING THE GOVERNMENT F BEING THE GOVERNMENT R BEING THE GOVERNMENT I BEING THE GOVERNMENT A IS SUCH A CUSHY JOB, BECAUSE THE RICH DON’T HAVE TO CARE ABOUT THE TAXES, BECAUSE THEY CAN AFFORD IT. THEY DON’T HAVE TO CARE ABOUT THE HOMELESS, BECAUSE THEY NEVER SEE THEM. THEY DON’T HAVE TO CARE ABOUT THE DISEASE THAT’S BEEN SPREAD, BECAUSE THEY WILL NEVER STEP FOOT THERE. THEY DON’T CARE BECAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE ANY PRESSURE. IF YOU SUBTRACT POLITICS AND THE MEDIA, WHO ARE BASICALLY DRIVING DIVISIVE BUSINESS MODELS, YOU COULD SOLVE THESE PROBLEMS, AND YOU COULD ACCEPT THAT TRUMP WOULD, BUT YOU CAN’T EXPECT TRUMP TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM, BECAUSE YOUR EGO WON’T LET IT. WE ALL KNOW WE WANT TO GET DRUG ADDICTS OFF THE STREET. WE WANT TO GET THE MENTALLY ILL INTO INSTITUTIONS, AND WE WANT TO GET PEOPLE WHO ARE TRULY DOWN ON THEIR LUCK TO GET WHAT THEY NEED.>>Juan: I THINK THE ONLY SOLUTION I’VE HEARD THOUGH IS THERE IS A FEDERAL OFFICE BUILDING VACANT, AND HE’S GOING TO MAKE THAT AVAILABLE. BUT THAT’S NOT SPEAKING TO THE ISSUES.>>Dana: I WAS JUST GOING TO SAY, THEY HAVEN’T PRESENTED ALL THAT THEY WOULD DO. THAT WAS A POSSIBILITY. I THINK THAT IF IT’S A POLITICAL STUNT, I THINK IT’S POLITICALLY SMART FOR REPUBLICANS TO CAMPAIGN IN CALIFORNIA, BECAUSE REMEMBER, ONE OF THE THINGS OF THE DEMOCRATS CONSTANTLY SAY IS THAT HE LOST THEIR VOTE. BUT IF HE COULD INCREASE HIS MARGINS WHERE YOU DO STILL HAVE POCKETS OF CONSERVATIVES, IT’S A BIG STATE. I’M NOT GOING TO SAY THAT A REPUBLICAN CAN WIN CALIFORNIA IN 2020, BUT CAN YOU INCREASE THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE THAT VOTE FOR YOU? YEAH. I WOULD. HE’S RAISING A TON OF MONEY FOR HIS CAMPAIGN.>>Emily: WE DID A WHOLE HOMELESS SEGMENT. I DID THIS WITH DR. DREW. IT’S A MULTIFACETED ISSUE. WHAT’S SO DISTURBING ABOUT THE GOVERNOR SAYING THAT IT’S ONLY ABOUT AFFORDABLE HOUSING, FIRST OF ALL, HE IS IGNORING HIS PAST. WHEN HE WAS MAYOR OF SAN FRANCISCO, CASH DID NOT WORK. THERE IS STILL A HOMELESS PROBLEM THAT IS INCREASING BY THE YEAR. BY CONTINUING TO FOCUS ON JUST ONE ASPECT OF IT, THEY ARE IGNORING EVERYTHING ELSE THAT THIS PRESIDENT IS AT LEAST TOUCHING ON. EVERYONE SHOULD CARE EXACTLY WHO IS ADDRESSING IT AND WHO IS NOT.
