>> absolutely nothing to do with it, stuart, but well done for trying. that's all i can say. >> well done. >> it's about oil. the market's high because of oil. stuart: and bernie lost. socialism is dead and dying. >> if you want to go with that, we'll go with it. stuart: we're out of time -- [laughter] but, neil, what have you got? >> that is the craziest compute for a market rally i have ever heard -- stuart: okay, there you go. neil: thank you, my friend. we doe with today's gains, the dow is up about a thousand points from that early thursday, february 11, lows. that's a may -- amazing comeback we've seen. some are saying at these numbers we are back to pricey levels. that's always in the eye of the beholder, but, of course, oil a big reason why we're seeing what we're seeing. you know the drill. it goes up, stocks go up, and it has been a big wind at this market's back. so we'll keep an eye on that n.
12:01 pm
the meantime, a race that seems to have focused on two very different types of candidates, but again i'm talking in the republican party, and i'm keeping the focus for the time being not necessarily on senator cruz, but on senator marco rubio who is desperately trying to present himself as the alternative to donald trump. it's not that simple, not that easy. north of 700 delegates in the next week to ten days, we might have a pretty good idea where we stand in this grand old party, well, shakeout. or shakedown. genevieve wood joining us now, brad blakeman. brad, begin with you. we have now polls -- and they're not necessarily always reliable -- donald trump leading in 10 of those 14 races i just outlined. in many of those cases, by double digits. what do you make of that and whether after that he is in a prohibitive position? >> i think if he does win 10 of those.
12:02 pm
>>, yeah, i think he's in the catbird seat because we're only talking about 1237 delegates necessary to clinch the nomination. and let's remember that after march 15th it's winner take all. so if you're going to make a stand, you've got to make it before the 15th of march in order to be competitive. now, let me say this, neil. if he continues to win a minority, under 40%, he may be the selected nominee of the party, but it's going to be a fractured party in order to unite behind the a minority candidate. neil: what to you make of that, genevieve, because mitt romney did not enter the convention with all the delegates necessary to win the nomination, but he had such a lead that it pretty much was consensus it was his. >> yeah, that's right. neil: now the situation with donald trump entering cleveland with, potentially, a big enough lead to make be it inevitable, but this time i suspect the party establishment might feel otherwise. >> well, they might feel otherwise.
12:03 pm
look, if he runs the table on march 1st, i think that sets him up to run the table on march 15th. but i think brad makes an important point. you know, he hasn't gotten more than 30-35% in most of the places where he's won, and now that we're down to, basically, a three-person race, it will be very interesting to see if cruz or rubio can get their numbers up into that 30 level. i think they have to in a couple different places, and keep in mind, we've got something going on before march 1st which is another republican debate. and just like the field has narrowed at the ballot box, you're now going to have fewer people on the debate stage on thursday night. and we've seen the debates at least in this cycle have made some differences. marco rubio learned that. so it'll be very interesting to see what happens this thursday, because i think all these folks, certainly cruz and rubio know they've got to make a statement next week, and the debate may be the first place they really try to do that. neil: you know, brad, i always follow the money, what are the donors doing, what are the candidates' various backers doing, how are they wooing, for example, some of the bush
12:04 pm
donors, what have you. who has an edge on those folks right now? >> i think marco does, and here is the reason. trump is a self-funder, so they don't have to worry about him and they don't like trump. they have no influence, and that's the one thing trump's right about. we have to select somebody who's electable. i think marco has the best shot of not only being selected by the party, but being elected by the people because of his themmer -- temperament, youth and the state he comes from, florida. >> there's a lot of truth to that. it's going to have to become a two-man race, i think, for trump to really be challenged. the question is it going to be cruz or rubio? they have one thing going for them. cruz is from texas, that's a big state with a lot of delegates. rubio being from florida, big state with a lot of dell gates. they have -- delegates. they have to be able to win their home state. neil: by the way, florida is a winner-take-all state. texas is not.
12:05 pm
>> that's right. neil: so if you're donald trump, he's trailing by sick points in the latest polls -- six points in the latest polls. they don't mean anything, i grant you. but he could draw even with a ted cruz in texas which for trump would be deemed a victory. >> you also have to say what does cruz do with that? does he decide, as jeb bush perhaps did, for the larger good of the party, i'm going to step aside? is we'll see. neil: all right. guys, thank you. it's getting exciting, isn't it? in the meantime, you're donald trump and you're looking at what you've done to so many of your rivals who have dropped out or barely hanging by the vine, so you look at the credible competition that you do have if you look to senate cruz, of course, they've already gone at it. but now marco rubio. lately donald trump has been raising issues about whether he is a legal citizen by birthright. of course, rubio was born in florida, there's no one doubting that, but his parents immigrated from cuba and were not u.s. citizens.
12:06 pm
so the fight end sues. the daily caller is commenting on that and whether planting those seeds of doubt is enough to do the trick or have some kind of veer to other candidates. what do you think? >> i don't know if it's enough to do -- i guess if the trick is to draw a few people away, yeah. maybe. sowing the seeds of doubt, this is sort of a donald trump specialty. this is like in the movies when you see the guy blindly firing the machine guy around the corner hoping he hits something, donald trump does this a lot. he is often retweeting people who make allegations about his opponents, and he's pretty transparent about why he does it. he's talked about it in iowa when ted cruz was gaining on him. you know, i might have to start attacking cruz now that he's getting higher in the polls. and he says out loud what so many people say behind the scenes which is, hey, we're going to take this guy on. now he sees marco rubio as a credible threat, and he's willing to float some of these theories -- neil: but how far does he go with that? because he must be thinking, he's a pretty savvy dealmaker and businessman. he must be thinking, well, i
12:07 pm
might need this guy, or this guy could end up on my ticket -- [laughter] so i don't want to go too far. i don't want to totally scorched earth policy, right? >> right. and this weekend in reference to this, he's already pleading ignorance. i don't know, i don't know if he's eligible. so, yeah -- neil: my friends are tweeting this and retweeting it. >> exactly. neil: right. >> exactly. neil: so that raises an issue. so i always think in politics nothing is personal, it's just business. kind of professional wrestling. they tear each other apart, then after that then they're fine. but i think the stuff between cruz and trump has escalated to something more. >> yeah. neil: they haven't had that opportunity yet with rubio and trump. now, they've both had their veiled shots at each other, but i don't see it getting to that level, but i could be missing something. >> no. there's a lot going on between ted cruz and donald trump, and it's kind of amazing for two guys who were such chums throughout most of the race.
12:08 pm
ted cruz was clearly drafting just behind donald trump going into iowa in hopes that he could pick off a lot of donald's supporters. and now the two of them are just vicious. and trump is going after him using words we don't hear in politics very often even between parties, saying ted cruz is a liar, the biggest liar he's ever seen, and really trying to undermine what ted cruz has made a plank of his campaign, that whole trust ted thing that he's running around with. if donald trump can really chip away at that notion that he's trustworthy, that's going to really do some damage. not only is that fight a big one, it's a big fight between ted cruz and marco rubio. who is going to be the one that takes the bullet so that the other one can rise? that's their hope any bay. and donald trump, by the way, points out he's going to take some of those voters no matter who drops out. neil: and it's not a given all those voters go elsewhere. some of them go to him. vince, thank you very, very much. >> my pleasure. neil: there is a separate issue for ted cruz if you consider efforts in new york and illinois, two states where
12:09 pm
there's an effort to take him off the ballot questioning his citizenship. of course, born in canada but to a mother who was an american citizen. i think you're familiar with the back story here, and to hear the cruz people tell it, no story. try telling that to roger bernstein who's soon to have the senator taken off the new york ballot. under what grounds, roger? >> well, you know, it's interesting. we really should start with marco rubio, because the same legal doctrines apply to marco rubio that apply to senator cruz. and when donald trump took a shot at marco rubio, that was a very cheap shot. it was really inappropriate. the place where you're born governs your eligibility to be the united states president. constitution when it was drafted in 1788 said that the president, unlike a senator or congressman, must be a so-called natural-born citizen of the united states. that is a very clear term. it was a clear term in 1788, it remains a clear term today.
12:10 pm
it focuses on where you were born. who your participants are doesn't matter -- parents are doesn't matter. marco rubio's parents were born in cuba. they were cuban citizens when marco rubio was born here. that doesn't matter. what matters is where you first saw the soil, where you first saw the light of day. that's an ancient saying. and that's what -- neil: by that measure, what would you say about john mccain? >> well, john mccain was born on a military base, and there's another ancient doctrine which basically say ifs your government sends you abroad to be a diplomat be or an ambassador or a member of the military, you don't lose that special citizenship status. it's an ancient exception. so john mccain sits in a comfortable spot. he was on a naval basis and in the canal zone we had occupied since 1904. neil: i don't know, roger, you're a very smart attorney and maybe i've just heard other smart attorneys argue it. it's like you're trying to thread the needle here that it applies to some, doesn't apply
12:11 pm
to others. on this issue it's been argued out again and again and again whether, you know, he is a citizen by birth of the united states. it is not good enough for you or by that thinking that ted cruz was born to an american mother in canada. that's not good enough. >> right. citizen by birth is not the same thing as born. you can only be born in one place -- neil: so when barry goldwater was born in a state that hadn't become a state, technically he wasn't a citizen, right? >> that has never been resolved by the courts. it's an interesting side passage. but the fact that these things happened in the past, that george romney was born in mexico or that barry goldwater was born in the territory of arizona, no court ever had to decide that. i mean, these apparent precedents from the past are not actually precedents, they're just historical events -- neil: do you have a candidate in the race? >> do i personally? no. this is a voter-based lawsuit.
12:12 pm
voters need to go to the polls knowing who the eligible candidates are. neil: because at first blush i would think you must be a trump guy. >> nope. in fact, i have a separate lawsuit pending against him. you probably knew that. neil: so my second thought would be maybe he's a rubio guy. >> this is -- i'm representing clients in this case. my personal preferences, whatever they might be, don't govern the legal job that i have which is to represent my clients. my clients don't want to go to the polls and vote for someone, find out that that person can't run. you know, congressman grayson has threatennenned to sue in september if cruz is the nominee. neil: well, is in the same argument being used in illinois? i know there are a half a dozen other states where this might come up. is the basic argument whatever your argument is in new york? >> variations of it, yes. the lawyers in other states have made similar arguments. maybe they haven't made them as well, maybe we won't succeed. i don't say that anything has happened in those states is dispositive. i do know in new hampshire the
12:13 pm
board of elections urged that the courts take this up. i know harvard has urged that the courts take this up. i don't understand why senator cruz is reluctant if he's confident that he's right. he should welcome a decision by the courts. neil: well, you know the courts, they can be all over the map. they can make multiple decisions depending on the courts. >> well, of course, and that's why one would want to get this up to the united states supreme court. neil: so this isn't just to keep him stuck in legal limbo forever. >> on the contrary. if i could just add, anthony scalia would have been the perfect justice to address this topic. i'm sure that irony may have occurred to pokes already -- folks already. he was an originalist. if you look at the original meaning of the clause natural-born citizen, that was clear in 1788. if you look at the text of the constitution, it draws a distinction between citizens and natural-born citizens. and a textualist, such as scalia, would say you have to
12:14 pm
give that meaning. you can't just ignore that difference. neil: well, other smart lawyers disagree, but we'll see. >> well, i thank you for the little compliment, but the thought really is toe to get a decision. neil: that's right. and we'll see. roger, thank you very much. >> you're very welcome. neil: all right, a peek at the dow, up 200 points. remember, trading was interrupted by the presidents' day holiday last month -- monday. oil a big catalyst, we'll get into some of the weeds a little later as these hour and 45 minutes ensue. but on to this apple fight with the fbi, and now enter congress to make this trifecta. what it wants to do to sort this all out once and for all. good freaking luck on that. ♪ ♪

we're the hottest young company around but if we want to keep the soda pop flowing we need fresh ideas! >>got it. we slow, we die. >>what about cashing out? no! i'm trying to build something here. >>how about using fedex ground for shipping? >>i don't need some kid telling me how to run a business! i've been doing this for 4 long months. >>fedex ground can help us save money and deliver fast to our customers.

12:17 pm
12:18 pm
neil: all right. if you're as confused as i am on this whole apple/fbi thing, you've got to have an expert like lizzie macdonald who's brilliant at sorting it out. now, as i understand it, lizzie, congress might get involved. explain what's going on. >> what's going on is apple is saying they are being dragooned by the fbi into writing new software to get into the san bernardino terrorist's phone. the fbi is saying you, apple, will have custody of the software. just write the software, we will remotely try to get into the terrorist's phone via password attempts. apple is saying they don't want to write this software, get this -- this is new -- because there are hackers out there who
12:19 pm
are relentlessly trying to attack and break in, that that software, even if it seem toes it's in their custody, could be hacked and stolen, and that would be the master key. fbi director james comey is saying, hey, let's take a deep breath, the world is not opening. apple doesn't dispute the software that the san bernardino county gave the fbi permission to get into the iphone, and the fbi has gotten iphone in other content from apple, and apple admits to that. neil: so does apple fear even if it's a single phone, one and done, you know, that the government would know how it opened that phone up, and it would be exposed? >> that's what they -- well, that's a good question. the fbi is saying we won't know how the iphone was opened because we won't have the software. apple will know how to open the phone, not us.
12:20 pm
apple will retain custody of that software -- neil: but apple fears that they will know. >> they fear that they will get hacked and that software will be hacked, and then that so-called master key, everybody would know. if apple gets hacked. that's why they're saying, you know what? congress decide it. apple is saying to congress you set up a commission and, by the way, that is in the works according to a bill from mark warner and michael mccaul, homeland security committee. so that would give apple legislative cover if congress comes up with a bill, a legislative solution that says now devices could be wiretapped, right? that's not what's happening now. phone traffic is wiretapped by law enforcement. for the first time, you could see devices wiretapped. neil: well -- >> sorry about that. neil: no, you're brilliant. thanks. enter congressman tim murphy from pennsylvania, calling for both apple and fbi to testify on this very issue to seek out, i guess, a middle ground, congressman, right?
12:21 pm
where congress would settle this? >> well, we're hoping to get some more information. i just sent a letter as chairman of the oversight investigation committee, a bipartisan letter, asking the head of the fbi and the head of apple to meet with us, to come to a hearing and talk with us about this. we've got to have a resolution. the idea that information could be out there that could lead us to finding more information about terrorists, terrorist attacks, terrorist networks which threaten life in the united states is something we've got to solve. and just talking about the periphery issues here is not going to solve this issue. neil: wouldn't a lot of apple enthusiasts, apple itself, free speech advocates, sir, say, well, you're still the government? it might not be the justice department, some judge, but it's a congressman and his buddies on both sides of the aisle who are deciding what we do. that's just as offensive. what do you say? >> well, they need to read the constitution, because the constitution forbids illegal
12:22 pm
search and seizure. you have to have a search warrant. there was a supreme court case, i believe, last year, reilly was the case whereby a policeman can't just look at someone's cell phone and begin to scroll through and get information. they've got to have a search warrant. that is what the fbi said they will do. they want to make this very specific, just let us guess their password and get into those files and use that. this is a system that was used very successfully during the iraq war when they got a cell phone from al-qaeda or someone else to look in it and find out what their contacts were. this is going to be very valuable to us. it still comes down to this: there's a huge threat here to lives. this is not just someone robbed a local convenience store and we're trying to find out something. this is an ongoing issue of war on terrorism by terrorists who will continue to find subversive ways and clandestine ways to communicate. and it is important to shut the door on that. i look at it this way, if a land lord owned an apartment building and there was some bad activity taking place in one of the apartments and the fbi says we
12:23 pm
need to have the pass code just to get into that apartment and the person said, no, because if i give you that pass code, you'll figure out how to get into everybody else's and we're not going to let you do that, this is very specific, very targeted to deal with manager. and the absence of this means those talking about i don't want anybody looking at my cell phone, which is not going to happen here, it is the issue of do we let those lives in san bernardino just be with considered collateral damage? i don't think the american people would like that because there are real lives on the line. neil: all right. an interesting fight. we'll see where it goes. congressman, thank you very much for taking the time. in the meantime, you've heard all this talk particularly on the republican side about a brokered convention. what that means is, essentially, someone arrives without all the delegates necessary to be the nominee. but in most cases you do have someone with such a lead that he's all but considered the nominee. what if that were donald trump? would the party go along with that? after this. ♪ ♪

12:25 pm
12:26 pm
neil: all right.
12:27 pm
i don't know if this warrants a fox business alert. nevertheless, the president is meeting with governors right now saying that china's not always played fair on trade, to which i'm sure many were at least thinking, duh. but nevertheless, one of the things he's trying to say as he pushes his own asian trade initiative -- that, by the way, does not include the chinese, but is meant to counter their trade strength overall -- that they have to stop manipulating their currency, stop trying to push their country-favored firms over ours, the kind of stuff, of course, that's been routine among democratic and republican presidents alike. but the criticism of this president is he hasn't done that nearly enough. we shall see. all right, now to politics and something, by the way, that donald trump has mentioned, this whole china thing and that they always have our number, and we're always playing on defense. say whatever you will, that has self-propelled donald trump to the front runner position in this quest for the republican nomination. he's a long way from there.
12:28 pm
keep in mind that you need about 1237 delegates to be the republican nominee, and right now he has anywhere from 60-70 depending on the math you use. so even with 14 states coming up that will portion out another 7-800 delegates, it is fair to say that even past that time he, if he stays in his lead, would not have all the delegates necessary to be the nominee. but he would have such a commanding lead, much like mitt romney four years ago, he'd get it. or would he? that's where this brokered convention talk comes in. mark serrano on that. mark, the argument is that the party will do everything it can to make sure that doesn't happen, arguing that trump has not amassed the exact number of delegates so they're free to look elsewhere. >> yeah. well, neil, the party's blinked before. i mean, on september 3rd when trump signed that pledge, you know, reince priebus, the party chairman, was there for him to sign it, i saw that as the party blinking.
12:29 pm
youngs, look at it -- you know, look at it this way. if trump has got the lion's share of delegates heading into cleveland, what he's going to say is i'm coming to cleveland, and hell is coming with me. because if he's close, he's going to raise hell for the party. and as much as the party establishment may have the rules stacked against him, if he's close, first thing he could do is try to lure a lot of unpledged delegates on to his side before the first ballots. but the other thing is if he's the world's greatest dealmaker, i think he would likely make deal at this point to put him over the top. neil: now, john kennedy did something like that in 960. he didn't -- 19 of90. he didn't have all the delegates necessary. in those days the inside boys in the party, you know, honchos had a lot of sway. lyndon johnson was head of that group, and kennedy just put him on his ticket. >> yeah, right. and that's the kind of deal i'm talking about. so no matter how much trump may
12:30 pm
be beating up on his opponents right now, i don't think that will matter at all in the end run. trump would make a deal that's going to make the most sense for his prospects to get the nomination and to win in the fall no matter what. you know, there's another threshold that has to be met. party rules say not only do you need 1237 delegates, but you also have to come in first in eight states. now, so long as cruz and rubio are duking it out, there's the possibility that neither one of them reaches that eight-state threshold. for one thing, there are and states with winner-take-all primaries, 13 states, they'd have to pick up a enough of those to get their delegate count up, but most importantly, to reach the eight-state minimum. >> this is going to be huge. >> going to be huge. going to be bloody. neil: mark, thank you very much. you know, this past weekend we buried a supreme court justice. now the question is whether we will see another justice before this president's term ends. republicans say, no way.
12:31 pm
democrats say, you better find a way. how doable and likely is that with scalia gone, now that they've resumed activity at the supreme court without that fellow on the bottom right, what then? after this. ♪ ♪ pet moments are beautiful, unless you have allergies. then your eyes may see it differently. 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.

12:39 pm
can get away with not holding a hearing. from my perspective, at the end of the day, the president has a job to do. the senate has a job to do also in making decisions as to whether it should be confirmed. >> i have seen them play both ways. senator obama did everything in his power. >> playing politics in the confirmation process. for all federal judges. it is very, very unfortunate. it is something we struggled with in the bush administration. the president has a job to do. the senate has a job to do. i think the american people should expect both to do their job.

spending the most money. that is her january. $41 billion. marco rubio at about 33 million. donald trump all the way down to $24 million. it is a big disparity there. another way to look at this is through the super pac money. they viewed it through iowa, new hampshire and south carolina. those three states. we are putting jeb bush on. putting him on this just to show it starts here. sixty-eight and a half million dollars in his super pac in just the first three states alone. that is doubled. marco rubio at 27 million. ted cruz at 13.8 million. donald trump, zero. he does not have a super pac. we have talked about this. none coming from the super pac.

side of the ghost each and every time and you would be wrong. back and forth with apple and fbi, in that specific case whether the government should be allowed to break into the phone of one of the san bernardino killers, hayden says he probably sides in the government but only in that specific case. on the broader question his comments are much more interesting and carry a lot of weight considering who they come from. he is saying this issue of the back door on the phone where the encryption could be cracked by the government and said that would not exist. he said in "usa today" interview it would harm our security. when you look at american security and safety at large we are safer, more secure nation without back doors. so he is against it, neil. he thinks it would, other people would be able to take advantage of it, whether hackers or even foreign security, foreign intelligence agencies. interesting point of view from somebody you might not think would have that point of view. neil: we will talk about that. that raised some hackles in his very own community.

so, a lot more with him tomorrow. thank you, connell. you know, when you look at the housing crisis from which a lot of areas are still recovering, the catalyst for a lot of it getting a house was birthright, not a goal as it used to be. we had no doc mortgages, no money down mortgages. we got a little too far, maybe a little too easy. now, pendulum seems to be swinging right back to that, or some, some people are warning about another housing correction are saying, amid news that bank of america is looking at 3% down mortgages, among others. gerri willis and tom sullivan on that. gerri, what is bank of america proposing here? >> well they want another 3% down mortgage. instead of putting down 20%, you would put down 3%. here is how this is so very, very different from what happened back in 2006, 7 and 8. essentially if the loan goes bad it is not going to be taxpayers on the hook.
1:33 pm
it is going to be a not-for-profit and this not-for-profit has a very interesting background. it is a group that emerged out of the housing recession and really head bankers feets to the fire demanding payment to assist people who were in trouble with their mortgage. so there is a lot going on here. i don't think the answer is as simple. neil: so, tom, a lot of people look at that, saying we'll go back to the go-go days of lending to anyone. i'm sure bank of america is saying not quite. what is the read you're getting because a lot of these type of loans did lead to trouble? >> you went through the whole list of no-doc loans, interest-only loans, nothing down, loans, it was crazy. if you were 98.6, you got a loan. as gerri was talking about, group in between bank of america and freddie mac is this self-help fund which has been around making mortgages since the 1980s and they have targeted primarily lower income folks that pay their bills on time. they are the ones who will be the screeners. they're first going to the got
1:34 pm
loan from bank of america and decide whether they want to fund it or not. when they take a look at these people, i think it is going to be a good screening process. then, once they buy it, once they approve it. it goes on to freddie mac. but if there is a problem with the loan, the self-help fund will take the hit. >> can i just say, i think what is crittably important about this and great news for individual americans out there, no private mortgage insurance. this is a lot of money that people have to pay out if they don't have the 20% down. with this extremely careful screening process, they won't require this anymore. that means 100 bucks to people, each and every month who barely have the money to put together to have a house, to fund the car, et cetera, et cetera. this is good news. once more it means the big banks are not leaving mortgage lending. for years and years we've seen the mortgage industry has been dominated by small-name, no-name companies.

1:43 pm
flights, in order to the fill the flights you have to lower fares. because their costs are lower now, because there may be some softening and trouble in the markets, people are getting nervous about flying. so they have to lower fares to assimilate that. the other thing is, you see spirit and frontier, who have come out with these ultralow fares. big guys setting a part a side of their cabin. you want to pay for bags. get unrefundable fare, want to pay for stuff in the overhead bin, come sit back here. neil: are you doing anything with cuba? i know about jetblue but what about cuba? >> cuba is interesting. from brazil things are in flux. neil: you're not running to it in other words? >> if i was in the u.s. i would be running to it. neil: really? >> there so many great destinations in the caribbean for europeans. i think it is interesting. a lot of people are very curious going to cuba and experiencing that country because it is so closed off. neil: yeah.

1:45 pm
middle and when you govern you're more to the middle. i think he would be a lot more rational as a president than he is as a campaigner. neil: markets are up over the lows reached a week ago. are you bullish, bearish, nervous. >> i'm nervous. you have to be nervous if you're working in those go places. i think it got a little heated. i think it had to have pullback and i think there are opportunities right now. neil: until that next flight to portugal, david neeleman, he has become an iconic figure in this industry overcoming a lot of naysayers with each and every new destination. think about that, more after this. enable global commerce that can help your company grow steadily and quickly. great job.

1:50 pm
republicans? >> it might be. i'm not saying they're thinking that way right now but what they're saying is, that they believe that advent of donald trump leads us, is almost as disasterous as hillary clinton for a lot of reasons including, you know, his alleged, i will say, nativism and things of that nature and they think, they think that, that he is a, far too erratic to be, to have his finger on the button. and they're going to try to pressure, and they are talking to bloomberg reaching out. neil: do you know what he is saying? >> from what i understand he, he keeps his cards close to the vest. neil: right. >> he doesn't rule anything out but i understand, and, it is more or less, that he needs two conditions to run. he needs trump and sanders to win, their nominations. that is at least floated so far by him and his people. that just, trump win and hillary
