sharp edge monica, in trump's enthusiasm. >> seems like a rat named. i will take it. it is a little fluid but not when it comes to donald trump. he kept up his commanding lead. stuart: it is all yours. neil: thank you. we have been monitoring what donald trump is saying in south carolina. obviously not a fan of that particular poll, bashings global street journal in the process but the fact of the matter is we looked at a lot of these polls in all sorts of ways. there's one bit of disturbing news potentially for donald
trump that he is where the other five want to be, no doubt about it. let's look at the numbers, donald trump has 32% support from palmetto state voters. ted cruz in second with 19, marco rubio, does the few back from there at 15 and ben carson and not an, jeb bush at 9 as well, john kasich, that looks good for donald trump but as you mentioned when you peel back the numbers just a look from where things stand in december you might get a little bit different and the meaning potential the. trend in december has 35%, now 32, just minimal. ted cruz quince 14 to 19, sizable jump of 5 points so here is the spread. in december it was 21 points. now it is down to 13. the question is with two days left can donald trump hold on to
that lead, run out the clock and anybody catch him? that we will see on saturday. i will leave you with this. in that fox news poll from's backers appear locked in with two days ago, 83% responded by saying they will support donald trump on saturday also say they are certain they will vote for him saturday. that was far and away the highest of any of the candidates. neil: thank you. dr. ben carson, presidential candidate in the middle of this race in south carolina and nevada coming up for republicans. good to have you, thanks for joining me. in the south carolina apple, and from 15% to 9%, does it worry you? >> i would be more interested on saturday.
i think a lot of shifting going on, people who are undecided. i have been here, lots of it. and people are outside the door trying to get in. we got your back, don't worry about the polls. neil: your campaign is hitting on another cash with some record fund-raising numbers. we have good polling numbers. would you be disappointed? do you think your donors would be disappointed? >> will finish as high as possible. but we are going to keep going on, no question about that. we are collecting delegates.
neil: just to be clear you have a disappointing finish, if you do -- >> as i have said many times, and the great american pastime, baseball, you don't call the game after the third inning. at least i don't. neil: it is amazing in south carolina, and in iowa, despite all of the dashing donald trump has done against the bushes, just like we say about individual members popular in south carolina. does that surprise you? >> the country is shifting, sometimes people's faith is not
the predominant thing in their lives. a lot of people are very frightened about the future for their children, they're fretting about terrorism and those things sometimes can take precedence. neil: do you think that anger trumps religious concerns or whatever doubts they might have than any of the candidates? the fact that they might shake things up in washington? what will be the theme? >> a lot of people are so frightened at this stage that they are willing to overlook almost anything as long as they feel some comfort. donald trump does give people comfort because they equate boisterousness, bravado with strength and ability. neil: you sound like you are saying you do not.
>> no i don't. i think just the opposite quite frankly. having been somebody who used to get angry and the boisterous, i have learned that real strings is being able to control yourself and control the environment. neil: do you think, i don't want to focus on the candidates that it has become a legal dustup between donald trump and ted cruz, donald from threatening lawsuits, ted cruz continues to run ads. by and large feature just donald trump's own words, talking in the past about when he was pro-choice, talking in the past about the ago in to get to this later on the show, the iraq war, may be wasn't as rapidly against it as first thought to be the case. weather it is fair use on the part of senator ted cruz to bring that to people's attention or donald trump's point of view
that that is unbalanced. >> to meet the sad thing is the weak are even talking about that. when you look at the condition we are in right now you look at the fiscal irresponsibility and how that threatens the future for our posterity, how it threatens the retirement of people who are here now. and failure to really spell out how we are going to get rid of isis, we are not talking about how we are going to fix our infrastructure including the electrical grid, how we are going to promote innovation, the very thing that made america a great nation. instead we sit around and call each other names, call each other liars. as i have said before, it is like rome. the city burning down. stuart:s to go to the coliseum. wake up. neil: you are speaking, we are
getting some rather harsh words from pope francis suggesting in the new york times, donald trump is, quoting the pontiff, not question. the pope saying mr. trump's campaign promise to deport more immigrants is a middle harsh. >> again, this -- even the pope jumps in, it would be hilarious if it weren't so sad. we have seen this before in history where people get distracted and don't look at what is important. neil: donald trump's attacks -- you take -- >> i am not going to judge donald trump in terms of whether he is a christian or not. some of the things he does may not be suggestive of christianity but then again all
of us have weaknesses and shortcomings. that is what it is all about. neil: kind of like for the pope, who are you to judge, very deft handling of that question. thank you very much. good talking to you, dr. ben carson. this is just coming from the new york times on the presidential race questioning the very pointed harsh criticism of donald trump's campaign for deporting more illegal immigrants. i don't know if it is a game changer, the environment and how we handle illegals and refugees in general. >> i don't see it putting up and in his support. the people who are supporting him for the most part have made up their minds, they like what he is saying and i just don't see a religious figure had
changing their mind to specialty when the pope has been perhaps less reluctant to wait in on political matters. he spoke before congress. we have been hearing a lot of political talk, more political talking recent months and it hasn't done much to change the political conversation from my perspective. neil: i think this surprise people have, how is donald trump doing so well, evangelical state like south carolina, you could make the same argument, i have a theory that evangelical voters when you talk about women voters young voters are not monolithic, age or their religion, matt is mad. if you are angry about the way things are going, it is not a statement on how you view candidates's faith, you are just ingrid.
>> to the extent that support for trump is rooted on the problems we see plaguing the country and so on. people are lot more focused on the day-to-day issues of their own finances and their ability to get a job and affordable education and so on so say what you will about donald trump or anyone else's the positions on those issues, but it is more grounded in the real world kitchen table tyche issues but i don't see the pope's comments having much of an effect. neil: these polls show donald trump is enjoying a double digit lead versus ted cruz, still double digit lead on various polls, similar tight lead in places like florida, half of the sec, could you see him running the tables on this? >> i think he has the ceiling of support of 39% or 40% and i
think this goes to the analogy ben carson was making with respect to the presidential race being like a baseball game. and a baseball game, two sides fighting at. we have 5 or 6 different candidates, when you have donald from consistently taking 35% to 40%, with different candidates, you are paving the way for donald trump to continue the momentum he had so what it will take is a large winnowing of the field, down to trump versus someone else whether it is marco rubio or ted cruz, that will be tough to do when a lot of these candidates feel they don't have a fighting chance. neil: will put. thank you. if we get any more updates from the pope we will be looking. obviously not a big fan of donald trump but that could change. team might say something else but again this is not the first time the pope has made and on what some believe our political
neil: doesn't take long for news to reach donald trump who is speaking to supporters in south carolina, the scene of the big debate in a couple days, the big primary. anyway, pope francis said he essentially it is not christian to talk about deporting people are kicking immigrants out, illegal immigrants, donald trump came back with a net nanosecond saying that the pope will wish and pray he was president, if the vatican is attacked by the islamic state and donald trump going on to say mexicans should be ashamed of using the pope as upon. kathy lien taylor, former bush 43 special assistant, what do
you make of this holy uproar? >> it is the holy up for. from has the uncanny ability to wield a teflon shield when it comes to these statements so -- neil: in south carolina, religious though it may be, that might resonate with folks. not the pope, donald. >> it is going to be tough to call because there are a lot of reports that marco rubio with his very christian message is resonating as well but the reality is donald trump can say these things and when he does his numbers seemed to go up. neil: we have seen them with prior statements of the everyone waits for something to change but it doesn't. >> you are a loser, this or that. neil: he did not call the pope a loser. >> that would be funny if he did. >> i wouldn't bet against it. if you add up all the folks who
support donald trump, the field is wide open for someone else to break through. i don't think he is bulletproof. neil: what if he wins -- half of the states, double digit polling. but he could run up -- >> between march 1st, and march 15th we are looking at proportional delegates. john kasich, ted cruz, can he still win, yes. others will have delegates. the question is what happens when we get to the winner-take-all states where donald trump might not do as well? neil: he leads in florida. in nullifies marco rubio and. at the same time. >> during the last debate how closely and intently he was listening and watching marco rubio which was interesting. the senator from florida. he is interested in him and i think -- i think it would bring maine remains to be seen but if
he continues to go on the path he is on an wins as many states he is predicted to would you look to marco rubio as a potential vice president? is always possible it may happen. is the biggest bag of insults ever, he could put a thesaurus out of business, there was a body language to catch. >> he has not been attacking john kasich, the governor of ohio. stuart: complementary of him. neil: that was like a light bulb. marco rubio. going after him. >> is a subtle distinction point but he has not gone after them. trump does everything deliberately, the fact that he hasn't makes you wonder. neil: i talked to a journalist friend, many dismissed it, you don't realize he is a brilliant
businessman. he is doing the art of the deal, we are on chapter 8 right now. if that is what he is strategizing, build up such a commanding lead, we don't have a nominee but he could be the favorite because he could have an overwhelming delegate lead and force the others to coalesce or fold. what happens? >> that is true. you won't win if you are republican unless you're going to carry ohio and florida. look at the two he hasn't gone after. i believe we will hit in nominee by a convention. >> when push comes to shove. neil: not influenced. >> i think we are in us sprint right now but ultimately this is not marathon and the next week's hostage we weeks -- neil: what raises the likelihood of my prediction is the proportional delegate rewarding
with some states, and make that more likely. >> vermont, massachusetts, and be on the lookout for moderates like john kasich. >> when you look at the rest belt and sunbelt, looking at minority voters and voters over 50 to carry those states. both populations which are not that so far. neil: you are in from the nile. he is a rational actor. neil: the strategy of everything does. neil: thank you very much. you might have heard there is something going on in south carolina. i don't have a problem with it because they are catering but we are going to be there. live coverage on fox news beginning at 10:00 a.m. eastern time. we pick of the baton beginning
with lou dobbs at 6:00 p.m. and as the polls are closing i take over with our finest and best, however long it takes because we mean it and another business and networks are committed to value enjoy money in the intersection between washington and wall street, where are they? i will tell you where they are, tupperware commercials. i remember as a kid tupperware came in when i'm was 10 years old. it has been around for a while. is nothing new with tupperware. this primary, presidential election, consequential to digests, we are there because this is big. the tupperware thing not so big unless you don't have tupperware, then you should get it. get the orange. we have.

especially when they feed all sorts of false information into them. they are using the pope as a pawn and they should be ashamed of themselves. that is the mexican government. they should be ashamed of themselves for doing so especially when so many lives are involved and illegal immigration is so rampant and so dangerous and so bad for the united states. neil: you know what is amazing about that response? it came within nanosecond's at a campaign event from something the new york times just released, comments by pope francis that trump was being unchristian with comment that he made about illegal immigrants, about this deportation push, the pope not a fan but what is amazing to me, i focus on weird things as you know, how quickly donald trump responded. wasn't tweeting it out, he just said it at a campaign event and is still speaking.
the ceo and chairman, don't care what your views are on mr. trump that is what they call rapid response. >> you are so right. think about it. extent previously, he instantly comes up with a retort against the whole thing and put himself in a position where he now takes the offense back and reclaim the field. i got to tell you i am not sure i disagree with what donald trump just said. i don't have a dog in this race. it is too early. i have got to tell you he can say the pope should not be involved in politics because john paul and margaret thatcher and robert -- ronald reagan brought down a p stuart: eyewall. neil: they will argue for the disenfranchisement of those that are poor, we can question global warming and all that but in the
officials from campaign response to the pope if and when the vatican is attacked by isis which as everybody knows is basis's ultimate trophy i can tell you the pope would have only wish and pray donald trump would have been president because this would not have happened. what do you make of that? >> i hate to say this but there is truth in that. don't you think isis would love to have a video of them cutting the head of the pope off, god forbid. let's be real about this. the reality is the we are in a global war against terrorism and the pope is a target, so is every jew, every question, everybody who doesn't believe the way isis believes. even atheists. i hate to see religion and politics get involved at this stage of the game. the only thing that troubles me about the pope's response is the pope shouldn't judge anybody. paul, the great apostle paul
says i don't even judge myself. if anything the pope should be saying i would like to get together with donald trump, let's talk about these issues that he has, let me see if i can change his hard versus just attacking him and saying he is and who he thinks he is. i know he is the pope but he is not god. neil: we just gotta tweet from the vatican, craig smith is going to hell. i am kidding. it is always good. >> i believe in jesus so i disagree with that tweet but i don't have a twitter account. neil: the pope got upset at this person who almost made him fall. >> he became human. he is a great guy but come on, we shouldn't judge each other seriously. neil: thank you, good seeing you. we have a lot more on this sort of fallout between donald trump
and the pope. if you are donald trump you are loving this. he is seizing on this, campaign remarkable days ago, president of the united states singling out someone not fit to be president, the american people would never elect president and another campaign gift, no less than the leader of the world's 1.5 billion plus catholics taking on the pope. and saying in this case your holiness you are wrong. you are wrong. la visit legalzoom today. the legal help you can count on. legalzoom. legal help is here. then your eyes may see it, differently.ave allergies. only flonase is approved to relieve both your itchy, watery eyes and congestion. no other nasal allergy spray can say that. complete allergy relief or incomplete. let your eyes decide.
neil: we have thunder from, well -- this. a vatican of dave. the representative on here. pope francis arguing that donald trump is rambling about illegal immigrants. they are not very christian and they are not very friendly. pope francis is upset. donald trump says the pope does not know what he is taking on jan talking about. blake bergman on the very latest. >> we have had to interrupt trump versus cruz, essentially.
this began with pope francis, the pope as you know, at the mexican border. he made a comment. he spoke about donald trump. here is what he said. i will quote you. a person who only thinks about making it again and again and not making it bridges is a christian did donald trump as an event right now. it is wrapped up in south carolina. pulling out this statement. he said he wrote just before his event. donald j trump response to the pope. i will read you the very first line here. if and when the vatican is attacked by isis, everyone knows that it is a trophy. only wish and pray that it was the president. he then goes on to say, "for a
religious leader to question a person's faith is disgraceful." donald trump not only addressing the pope's criticism today, but taking them on. kind of saying that what the pope has said is "disgraceful." back to you. neil: thank you very much. he is all sorts of security issues. on this whole, i know you are not a political type. this gets pretty big. >> all things considered. this grace from the pope. you know what, not a good thing. you do not want to upset him. what the pope has been saying.
this apple thing. you are the expert. i think that it is very fixable. i love apple products. i can go over to the apple store. one of those guys in the blue shorts. they can look at it. whatever they need. we are breeding our privacy. you know, this sam bernadino attacker. let's open it up. what is the problem? >> the most brilliant mathematical minds in the world. that is a fair statement. it is an impossibility to think that i would know the anything that does not have a back door to it did a criminal
investigation. fourteen americans killed. it is absurd. it is absolutely absurd. >> a big inconvenience. >> not so easy to retrieve this. >> i do not know. period their argument really is -- neil: they just want to open up this device. a long-term effects. there is a gross disparity. pushing on it patriotism. they are not saying for the purpose of intelligence gathering.
neil: understand this. they say that the government is far more broad in its demand. getting through this backdoor, whatever you call it. e-mailing, texting. that was the problem. if that were the case, if you went back and said no, no, this phony question what up for you. the phone number is 71. the thing is, we now know they never do. whenever you go for a search warrant, any kind of court order, you have to be very specific about what you want. that is not the case. that was never the case.
neil: is the fear that when you open up a phone, you find a way to get past, that is exposed to the government? these guys will create something. they will always do this. >> it really is not realistic. >> who do you trust more? >> i trust the government more in this case. hands down. this is a criminal investigation. the 14 people killed in the terrorist attack. >> information on the phone. all right. thank you very much. i appreciate it. donald trump is under attack.
these little guys? they represent blood cells. and if you have afib - an irregular heartbeat that may put you at five times greater risk of stroke - they can pool together in the heart, forming a clot that can break free, and travel upstream to the brain where it can block blood flow and cause a stroke. but if you have afib that's not caused by a heart valve problem, pradaxa can help stop clots from forming. pradaxa was even proven superior to warfarin at reducing the risk of stroke, in a clinical trial - without the need for regular blood tests. and, in the rare event of an emergency, pradaxa is the only oral blood thinner other than warfarin with a specific reversal treatment to help your body clot normally again. pradaxa is not for people who have had a heart valve replacement. don't stop taking pradaxa without talking to your doctor. stopping increases your risk of stroke or blood clots. ask your doctor if you need to stop pradaxa before any planned medical or dental procedure. pradaxa can cause serious, and sometimes, fatal bleeding. don't take pradaxa if you have abnormal bleeding. and seek immediate medical care for unexpected signs
of bleeding, like unusual bruising. pradaxa may increase your bleeding risk if you're 75 or older, have kidney problems, stomach ulcers, a bleeding condition, or take certain medicines. side effects with pradaxa can include indigestion, stomach pain, upset or burning. don't just go with the flow. go with pradaxa, the only blood thinner that lowers your risk of stroke better than warfarin and has a specific reversal treatment. talk to your doctor about pradaxa today.
effect that may be donald trump is not christian. i am a christian. i am proud of it. neil: this one involves no other candidate. particularly on a very tough stance. shipping them back. they should not be here. a tough response to getting the pope's attention. the political fallout with gary. >> how are you doing. great to be with you. donald trump asked my advice, i probably would have avoided that stuff with the pope. neil: that there may be. the climate change. they may be receptive to that.
what do you think? all due respect to the holy father. a legal and illegal. we have certainly done our fair share. juices loves hard-working taxpayers, t. comparing to illegal immigration. maybe donald trump should avoid arguing with the pope. i want to stay purely on politics. neil: we know more seeking security of liberty than any other country.
i was irritated about all these folks sitting in judgment on the united nations. neil: seven of those countries. you still support ted cruz. right? bailing out a couple weeks. a great senator. appropriately so. he is pro-life. profamily. strong foreign-policy. what is not to like? >> he is obviously surging in the polls. the argument is, he has to get that momentum and get a party to coalesce around him.
you have seen a sign of many of the party. they are more likely to gravitate to a marco rubio. what do you think of that? >> i will point out the obvious. i think there is a whole lot of the party that does not want the front runner to get the nomination. then, the rest of the party will have to coalesce around somebody sooner rather than later. that one on one with ted cruz would be donald trump. we are waiting to see what happened in south carolina. the more likely we are to get a clear outcome. neil: we will watch it closely. very good seeing you again.
>> as always, neil. we are going to have much more fallout here from the pope comments. it is rare. a representative from the vatican would weigh in on the race. questioned the timing of u.s. military actions and the like. this is the first time i can remember a presidential election. it gets pretty interesting.

of the catholic church. attacking donald trump are not being christian. this is the best we could get from charlie gasparino. charlie: callback to vatican city. >> i have been with hotter women than the pope. charlie: as a catholic, lapsed as i am, the pope, these days does not carry the same weight that the pope carried back in, you know, dirty years ago. neil: globally, he does. >> even among catholics. charlie: the pope is a socialist to begin with. neil: no, he's not. charlie: he is a socialist. economically, politically.
s-uppercase-letter want you to look at each other. >> he does not have a lot of credibility. i think that it will actually help donald trump. >> i think both catholics i know see the pope as someone who thinks it is build on capitalism and they do not appreciate that. we should point out that, you know -- neil: that the refugees. charlie: he has not gone after angela merkel or some potential leader calling them, you know -- what he is calling donald. he has every right to attack back. a socialist pope does not hold credibility on an issue like immigration.

who is right on this? >> who is right on this? >> the business part of the question. unbelievable to make a claim that the pope was being manipulated. trump should realize that the hierarchy has often been in mexico. on that point alone, it is kind of a laughable accusation. i have said this in the past. we are a nation of immigrants. it has not been the same part of the pope. investigating europeans that have not exactly flock to his view that all these refugees from serious should you let in. >> right. a very good point.
whether or not they are accepted in europe or anywhere. at least in the roman church or the other church, you know, in fact, a head of state, said of facilities and instructed to help receive refugees. he has put his money where his mouth is. >> donald trump going to confession. speak to you. father, forgive me for i have sinned. i have criticized the pope. you would tell him what? >> criticizing the pope is not a sin. there is a charitable misperception. it is some kind of closed system that way.
a dialogue with the believer. their commitment, first of all, their rhetoric. those are the issues. if i ever had a conversation with don moe trump, i would want to bring. >> i am talking about donald trump. his rhetoric. my own interpretation, is the pope is reacting to the media effectiveness of trump. here is some inflammatory language. all sorts of criminals. only about six months ago. >> i know where you are going. thank you. very, very much. we will see what happens. a guy that played it. the actor. good to see you. >> good to see you, neil.
>> scary good. scary. what do you think? >> well, i do have an opinion. it should be someone in america who takes on donald trump. we should not have to wait for the pope to say that his behavior is wrong. >> his behavior has not been nailed by the media itself. >> no. they all get there. >> someone has to say to donald trump, at long last served, have you no decency? that is what they have to say. he has to hear. opposing you politically and opposing your positions and his
bullying, mean lying loud insistent constant trumpeting. nonsense. >> i put all my money on donald trump. >> you have that view. he is running away with it in the polls. >> i think that it is an indication no better a month no better indication for the spiral of cultural decay. >> you are saying the people that support them are idiots. >> if we do not teach our children to excellence, especially to those people that believe in american exceptionalism, if we do not teach to it and prove it, if we

>> i do not have the slightest idea. neil: yes you do. would you be okay with that? >> the last time we had 90%, it was done by dwight david eisenhower. neil: he did not do it. in other words, you would advocate that. you would be okay with that. >> it depends on the need. you would be okay with taking only 10%. >> just tried to pay for. you have to pay up now. i understand that. all good points. you would be okay. one of the celebrated and gifted act errors. keeping only one out of 10. for how long.

>> it is not even a debate. >> the pope. how could he take on the pope? neil: how could the pope take on donald trump? >> he does have that infallibility. >> you have not made a single day. your political views are kind of crazy. >> you don't know my political views. >> i am telling you, you are off the charts great. you know how long it has been. in the middle of the 19th century was the beginning of that. a thesis or whatever you want to call it. it did not happen.

certainly some of the things that he does may not seem christian. all of us have weaknesses and shortcomings. >> it really scares me. my mouth is moving. anyway, that scared me. i did not see that coming. the pope. senior editor jamie weinstein, elizabeth a donald, dagen mcdowell. dagen: why do you go to me? neil: i want to go where someone will say something while. dagen: okay. though pope knows how to get press, clearly. neil: he was asked the question. he did not just volunteered.
>> you cannot answer, right? what he has done, though, he does shine light on donald trump's record of social issues. >> i agree. the american catholic vote. the conservative economic issues. every election since 2000, near 2000, they have voted near democratic. >> south carolina. i would imagine some people thought it was crazy. what i want to see is a financial disclosure. the pope is now on the campaign payroll. the pope ventures that donald
trump will dominate the media cycle just hours or half a day after nikki haley endorsed marco rubio. no one is talking about that anymore. neil: the pope is raising his name. i am just saying, you are donald trump. >> it is great. what is the fight over? different views of immigration on the republican party. there are zero people that do not support some type of border wall to protect our sovereignty. now a savior in that fight. >> it brings up the issue that is at the heart. crime, drug trafficking and the economic impact. the pope did not address that, of course. you do expect that out of the
pope. also, there was another issue here. >> the donald trump still needs to worry about conservative voters. you want to know what i am talking about, go watch that interview where he is like i am pro-choice. >> the pope is not a leader of the christian faith. many evangelicals that they'll flip. i am wondering if donald trump knows that. what do you think? >> you have to look at what he is fighting over. this is not necessarily over social issues. it is not just the trump blog. legalizing b 11000000 people that are here.
trump is kind of attacking. attacking the entire. liz: the pope will raise the issues. will he now back bernie sanders? we do not have to agree with the political warrants. it is natural for a man or woman of faith. being concerned about refugees. manageable he helping this country. >> he is feeling the burn. no. no. especially religious leadership have the right to question another man's religion. he can do whatever he wants to.
>> imagine that. [laughter] dagen: how long have you been waiting? >> did you give up jokes for lent? or schumer. [laughter] i don't even know what that says. [laughter] neil: the fallout from the pope's remarks. i am looking at political turns. forgive me. i think that this is just a gift from heaven. donald trump. spell it out. after this. double logo
the 15 coming "fast and furious." a suicide hotline operated by veteran affairs was allowing a lot of calls to go to voicemail. this is coming from a report. if you were waiting for veteran affairs to clean up its proverbial act, you will still have to wait. congressman, what do you make of this? >> sadly, it is not a surprise. similar to the experience i had trying to make an appointment. i have tried to get through their hotline.
not just for suicide prevention, but simply to make an appointment. it is simply impossible. i got rerouted so many times in the caller system. finally giving up. neil: as far as i know, one person lost their job. another re-signs. that is it. it has been sometime now. you know, has there been any real improvement there? >> i have met with the va many times. this is my top priority. i think our veterans deserve the best healthcare in the world hands down. that is why i have made this commitment. i have these bills with bipartisan. trying to improve that things at the va here and they are not
doing enough on their own. my most recent bill was bringing some private-sector innovation. the form of online scheduling. being able to make appointments at the va. the va's approach is to say we will spend $620 million of taxpayer money to develop our own out. that is when they have are ready developed them and they are available to people. neil: do you think we even need a va? >> at is a fair question. asking everyone to go give private healthcare. the healthcare system would not be able to absorb it. they would have even longer wait times. there are some advantages. i think we need more competition. partnering with the red sox to develop the home-based program.
dealing with private-sector alternatives. i would like to see more of that throughout the country. >> all right. problems at the irs. gerri willis has all the latest. >> you have covered this story before. the irs seizing the bank accounts of regular americans because they believe it has something to do with crime. the people say just the opposite. north korean convenience store operator having $150,000. going into a store to find guard dogs. irs agents that wanted to seize the property. also in the sauers. $29,500 please. the idea behind the law is people that have a deposit less than $10,000 could be breaking the law.
the irs has the ability to take that money. lately they have been saying maybe they will do less of it. they say that a are still waiting. six months after they petitioned the irs for help. the attorneys asking just last week, can you do something about this? radio silence. they're getting no response from irs. you have covered this a lot. neil: if you are a nano second late paying your taxes to the irs, they are all over you. it does not work the other way around. >> no. there is no quid pro quo. these people have no idea that this law even existed. now they are being held to the standard. >> donald trump.

george bush made a mistake. that one was a beauty. we should have never been in iraq. >> neil: donald trump has been campaigning, going into iraq before anyone else. when i interviewed back in january of 2003 a couple months we formally got involved in iraq, well, he could have led a different impression. this is from back then. >> if you were advising on how much time you spend on the economy? >> well, i'm started to think that people are more focused on the economy. they're a little bit tired of hearing, we are going in and not going in. he would go and attack. he wouldn't talk. it's sort of like either do it or don't do it. >> neil: so you're saying this is getting kind of short. the president has to do
something presumably sooner than later and stringing this along could hurt us? >> he's either have to do something or not do something. perhaps we should be waiting for the united nations. you know, he's under a lot of pressure. i think he's doing a very good job, if you look at the polls, the people are getting tired. i think the iraqi situation is a problem and i think the economy is a much bigger problem. >> neil: , all right, two things about the interview. i have a better tupai and finished puberty. >> you looked so young. >> nor is he fully endorsing iraq, he is some saying a clear decision is required.
well, what's change? >> he speaks now like he was protesting code pink, this huge person on the media stage, protesting against president george bush and what i find fascinating george w. bush has 77% approval rating nationally among republicans, right now it's higher than president obama's, going after the bush family and going after president bush for 9/11 -- excuse me, invading iraq is a liberal talking point. >> neil: it's the elephant in the room. jeb bush is not. >> in the last debate between him talking about invading iraq and saying planned parenthood is a great organization that does great things for women, he sounds like a liberal democrat to me. >> neil: ted cruz has been
playing a lot in those ads. >> this isn't the clip from 1999. this was last week's debate. >> neil: i understand that.

don't put it that way, in saying, we are evangelical but we have to get stuff done, we have to shake up the joint, so this isn't whether it's conservative or not or whether this candidate is right or left on this position, fix this mess. >> yeah, he keeps saying over and over again, he's going to build a wall, he doesn't give policy specific for me. i lived through hope and change. >> what do you think him fighting with the pope? >> it will help trump too. >> neil: are you catholic? >> i'm baptist. >> neil: look, he's saying what every pope is saying. you think he's a little too political. >> i think he was calling out trump. >> neil: donald trump is a total disaster.

there he was with the mexican leadership and they said, what a terrible guy donald trump is. by the way, people are going to come in legally, they are going to come legally. i think that's what happened. >> neil: what do you think, sarah? >> well, first of all, there's no reason to think that donald trump isn't going to win south carolina. he's up in every poll but to the extent that he does have a weakness it's about the question of whether he's sincere in his values, on the one hand to have the pope questioning the faith is a problem. the pope wasn't hitting him on the condition of abortion. in a sense it could be another boost to donald trump, places focus on the fact that he wants to build a wall along the southern border. >> neil: yeah, you should turn
around the remarks. conservatives that weren't too keen on a pope that is in issues that they don't think he should, climate change and what have you and policy toward illegal immigrant, whether you're of that opinion or not, they would take donald trump's side. >> exactly. i mean, the pope polls more popularly among democrats than republicans, something that you might not expect. if anything, this might just make conservatives look upon the pope more skeptically because he's using immigration to question someone's faith. >> neil: the way pope explained position on immigration might actually help his case too. we are not antiimmigrant, pope francis, at least people crossing over the border and setting up forever, do you think
that further helps future trump commercials? >> you know, it really could because a lot of people would take offense to the fact that the pope is trying to conflict opposition with unchristian view. a lot of people don't see it that way, and so for him to tie the two issues together, that might just give donald trump more leeway to run on this immigration policy. >> neil: already has come up, why didn't he rally half of the european to be open to refugees in syria. he didn't use the type of language against them, right? >> exactly. you know, the pope weighing in specifically on an individual and a race, not just a blanket decree of people that oppose open borders. that's unprecedented for a pope to say something like that.

for the pope to say, he gets on the climate change thing and immigration thing, i think it was off base and wrong thing to say. >> neil: but, but, wouldn't it be more surprised if the pope said, you should step on do illegals, right, he's a holy man. he did you want have the factor the cost of all this. i just wish as he was in europe with the refugee problem there. he has spoken out. >> christians are being slaughter in the middle east. >> neil: he has. you're obviously a pope hater. >> i'm not.
