5:00 pm
heidi: i am heidi. mark: and i am mark halperin and with all due respect to clinton staffers, you missed an awesome opportunity for ring around the rosie. on the show tonight, hillary's rope and christie's hope, but first the donald says nope. a feature story links statement from the donald, an unusual one. trump's statement simultaneously stands by what he said but
5:01 pm
sounds for him uncharacteristically defensive in trying to justify his remarks. you can read the whole statement on our website. it has become the dominant matter and republican presidential politics of late. every republican presidential candidate has been asked to comment on trump's original statement. how to respond? one school of thought says show sympathy for the man. >> i salute donald trump for focusing on the need of focusing on legal -- illegal immigration. i am not going to engage in the devious game of throwing rocks and attacking other republicans. i'm not going to do it. mark: so ted cruz santorum and showing sympathy and there's another school of thought that says hit him hard. governor bush: this was a guy
5:02 pm
who was a democrat for most of the last decade. he is not a stupid guy, so i do not assume he thinks that every mexican crossing the border is a racist so he is doing this to inflame an insight into draw attention which seems to be the organizing principle of his campaign. governor perry: i was offended by his remarks. he will have to defend those remarks. i never will. mark: trump wrote on twitter that jeb bush likes mexican illegals because of his wife. that tweet was later deleted. and there are chris christie and others who have said trump is a good guy who said bad things. so heidi what is the best way to deal with a controversial mr. trump? heidi: the way they hope to do
5:03 pm
deal with him was ignore him. he was the reality star with the funny hair they wanted to ignore, but this shows they cannot ignore him, especially when he is making comments that many view as inflammatory. mark: and bad for the party. no way to ignore donald trump. he is a different breed of people are going to talk about him and if he says controversial things, as long as he is on the stage, he will -- they will have to answer. heidi: they took too long to respond. they will have to take this as a lesson. they took 12 days to respond. in the future they will have to be honest. mark: mitt romney took trump's endorsement in a high-profile way a couple years ago, he also criticized trump. i want someone to hit him harder and say he does not belong in this race. at some point there will be a face-off with donald trump. heidi: from gotham to gorham,
5:04 pm
new hampshire where hillary clinton marched in the fourth of july parade and her supporters were surrounded by ropes like common bovine creatures. she tried to get back on the presto good side. mark, good idea bad idea? mark: it was purely logistical. it was a parade. they did not want the press preset so they would miss the whole parade. they were ruining the parade by running around and this was a way to give them contained and moving forward it looks horrible, but it was hugely logistical. heidi: given the history, they had to see this coming. it was stupid to do this especially given the clinton administration and hillary clinton's on reputation with the press is being paranoid and having this brass knuckles approach to dealing with the
5:05 pm
media -- mark: it is a self the filling prophecy -- fulfilling prophecy to say because she has this relationship with the press everything feeds into this image. there are security concerns. think about the parade. if they have let the press go where ever they wanted to go -- we are him then all the time. heidi: they will have to be more sensitive. mark: i agree. i agree. i agree it does not look good. and there is a special onus on her. in this case i do not think their motives or anything but not to have the event the ruined. and they pay a price for who she is. heidi: and certainly, there is the accessibility and other ailments they have been hit on. they are on it -- mark: we will see the interview tomorrow. we will see what she gets asked and what she says. chris christie over the weekend -- he was on fox news twice and
5:06 pm
you good morning morning joe on msnbc. he went out of his way to name check some rivals in a negative way, including rand paul and ted cruz, and appeared to take a veiled shot at scott walker. governor christie: i am a guy who has dealt with a democratic legislature and got things done. much more likely than if you are republican governor where they republican legislature were used in things down the hall, they stamp it and send it back. senator paul's conduct is made them weaker and more vulnerable to attack. it is a terrible thing. and for him to raise money off of it it is disgraceful. i find it ironic number right that ted cruz is giving lectures on republican violence. all due respect, i do not need to be lectured by ted cruz. mark: you have the best republican brawler calling out his rivals. is this smart for him to start going after people by name
5:07 pm
pretty much before anyone else? heidi: it's not only smart. it's his only option. we are going -- were talking about a guy who went from inc. the prohibitive front-runner to he may not qualify for the debates. what does he do to call attention? he is throwing punches in every direction. not just at jeb another prohibitive front runner but also ted cruz. it is also his style, being scrappy. mark: the other smart thing, he is going after people on things that he believes about. these are not gratuitous shots. he is defending himself. cruz has criticized people for criticizing trump, and christy points out that cruz has his own problem going after republicans. i think he is speaking for the heart -- from the heart and when chris christie speaks from the
5:08 pm
heart, he is at his best. the biggest political stories on the planet are not here, but overseas. we will get you excited talking about greece in iran, right after this. ♪
5:09 pm
5:10 pm
mark: the deadline on the iran nuclear talks is approaching. foreign correspondent indira lakshmanan is here. give us the latest. indira: we have the foreign ministers from the six major powers negotiating into the night with a run. after dinner, they are planning to restart negotiations at 9:00 a.m., expected to go until 3 a.m. or longer. this is not a done deal. john kerry has stressed this could go either way. if it fails, we are in unknown territory.
5:11 pm
no foreign minister here is speaking about another extension. the major sticking points -- onvia rainy and side they want sanctions really faster and on the american side they want to delay the lifting of a u.s. arms embargo and they want really rod access -- rod access to make sure -- bropaad access to make sure it iran never cheats over the life of this deal. in washington it will be an incredibly hard lift to sell this deal in august. their work is not done even if they get this deal done tomorrow night. back to you, mark and heidi. mark: now joining us, richard ross. richard, thank you for coming in. skeptics, people are open to supporting it, but skeptical. some people on capitol hill, if you are a skeptic, based what has come out of it, what are you worried about? this has to come through or i
5:12 pm
cannot support this? richard: probably the biggest question for skeptics is inspections. a little bit of concern for too much sanctions relief too soon. my own concern is less that. i am more concerned about what happens if iran complies? 10 years from now, they can do whatever they want? the cost of that, we will face a daily problem with many of its neighbors. managing that will be a permit challenge to american foreign-policy. heidi: but if the deal is not quite there, could it faced pressure from its negotiating partners to sign on and then what happens? richard: sure, if things break down, the most important thing you do not want the breakdown to be perceived as the united states moving the goalposts. it's one thing if the iranian
5:13 pm
government says you cannot have inspections that reasonably bowl -- reasonable people would find essential. it seems to be on as if the sanctions unravel. mark: does iran have a strong hand at this point in the negotiation? richard: sure. mark: what is the source of strength for them? richard: you have china and russia that are relatively sympathetic. you have a united states government that clearly does not want things to fail. each side is in some ways limited by what it does not want. what keeps iran in the deal is their desire and need for sanctions relief for the economic promise -- bonus that will provide to the government. mark: let's would to the other big story of the day, greece. nobody knows what is going to happen. let's say worst-case, greece leaves the euro and the european
5:14 pm
union. what are the implications if that happens? richard: in some ways, probably less than people think. it would highlight some of the structural problems that europe got ahead of itself. on the german side, it might be solid tory to some respect -- selyealutory in some respects. the real problem is economics. whether this weakens, not just europe, but the world economy. heidi: do you think this referendum vote could have politics at play in terms of the greeks just wanting a better bailout deal? richard: 100%. i'm not speaking for greece, but that is what this is. the government saying it's not just us. it is the greek people. if they had had a referendum saying, do you want to stay in the euro? 60% of the people would have said yes. this was simply built to
5:15 pm
strengthen their bargaining position. they are still hoping the germans and the europeans will blink. i'm not sure it's going to happen. with the banks closed, how do you keep people alive? the greek government will have to issue some kind of new script, a new drop my, we will give you money -- a new drachma, we will give you some money to tide you over for a couple days. that is where we are. mark: outside of greece and merkel who are the huge players that will define how this goes forward? richard: it's not the united states, interestingly enough. the imf, christine lagarde has a role. the odd thing about the french government, one of the reasons the german government is hanging so tough is it is worrying about southern europe. france is at the end of that line. the most important country
5:16 pm
ultimately in southern europe after italy is france. that is what the germans are worried about. mark: in the end, does this matter? does it matter a lot, a little? richard: probably less than people think. i would be worried about the chinese economy. the stock market there is down 3% over the last couple of days. no, i don't think this is -- when we are done with the year i do not think this will be the central story by any means. heidi: do you think u.s. deficit hawks, understanding the situations are very different, but given the dialogue going on in the u.s., they will draw parallels in the election? richard: alas not. when you think about what we have our deficit going up, more than anything else, it is entitlements. they are still off the board. the sequester, a lot of things it does not deal with entitlements. when rates go up, that will
5:17 pm
exacerbate our problem with the deficit and the debt. but that is in the too difficult to talk about box in american politics which is too bad. sometime during the next presidency, some of these issues as the baby boomers begin to retire probably around 2020, 2021, these issues will really come to the four. mark: iran deal, yes or no? richard: yes. mark: wow. and greece days inn, yes or no? richard: in the long run, yes. mark: all right, thank you very much, richard haass. ♪
5:18 pm
5:19 pm
mark: in a spanking new washington post profile, scott walker's wife jeanette talked about family tension between the governor and his sons. that reminded me of a conversation i had with mitt romney and his eldest sons.
5:20 pm
they talked about what it was like to have a father run for president twice. >> it was a huge privilege. it does not mean it was easy the all-time. there were high points and low points. it was challenging. i think you take it more seriously as the family of the candidate, but yeah, it was a fantastic experience. mark: we often talk about when someone runs a second time, they are a better candidate. your dad was a better candidate the second time. what about for the family? guest: ira member, people came and talked to us and they said we've got this thing -- the second time you knew right from the start you knew what it was going to be. mark: was there something you learned the first time you are able to apply to the second time? tagg: you knew what it was going to be and you just developed the
5:21 pm
thicker skin. mark: 16 kids -- tagg: i think they're more than 16. mark: most of them have kids. what kind of advice would you give to those families, those who are teenagers and above. tagtagg: i have spoken to a few of them. my advice is enjoy it. be yourself, don't be afraid to speak out when you have an opinion. don't let the consultants or the experts shame you into being quiet, and try to stand up for your parent, because you know them better than anyone else does. mark: can you really do that? one of the most heartening things i have seen in the whole cycle so far, ted cruz's little girls, they were concerned how
5:22 pm
they would react, and they came out on the stage and were waving and they seemed pretty into it. tagg: you can get used to anything. it becomes the new normal. and it is ok. mark: your dad is staying out of the race for a while. is your plan to do the same thing? tagg: i am. i plan to wholeheartedly support whoever the republican candidate is. mark: there has been talk of you running for public office here or in massachusetts. is that something you are open to? tagg: no. i rolled that out. for a long time, i thought it might but watching the process -- i do not want to put my kids through. i am ruling out for the next 15 years at least. mark: how old will you be? tagg: i will be 60. mark: you are interested in
5:23 pm
public service, but i think what you're saying is you do not want to put your kids through -- isn't that a little discouraging for the country that someone who are seen it up close and personal is saying, i don't want my kids to go through what i went through? tagg: you know, i have worried about this for a while. there are a lot of good people i would love to see run for office and you do not want to do it. i do not know what the answer is. it's certainly a problem. mark: your grandfather served in public office. your dad did. will family politics die -- tagg: my brother josh. i'm encouraging to run for governor -- mark: of which state? tagg: utah. mark: do you think he would require a lot of convincing? tagg: i don't think so. mark: what would be a good
5:24 pm
slogan for his campaign? tagg: i am tagg's younger brother. mark: that's popular? the clintons, the obama's have been pretty good at shielding their daughters from scrutiny -- is there a lesson from that? they said, we are not going to put our friends front and center. can a candidate say that? my kids are not going to campaign. we would ask that you not scrutinize them? tagg: i think so. my daughter was on the campaign trail last time. she stayed off camera and we asked the cameras to stay off of her. mark: and it worked. tagged romney, thank you very much. so tagg romney and his brothers have become professional offspring of a presidential candidate. scott walker's sons and his wife seem to be more inclined toward
5:25 pm
same-sex marriage than scott walker is for sure. how big a deal in this field with a lot of younger kids do you think this issue is going to be spouses or kids being different than issues on their candidate's relative? heidi: i do not think it was a surprise to anyone that members of families have different opinions? in some ways that make the candidate even more relatable, and on this specific issue, it's not going to hurt scott walker on evangelicals. it may even help them with younger voters if he should make it to a general election. mark: i think you are right, but you do see some conservatives reacting to this washington post story and saying, wait a minute, if scott walker is getting all of this pressure at home right after he gave the interview and did not talk about same-sex marriage in a way conservatives may be looking -- you saw laura
5:26 pm
bush taking different positions than her husband on a few issues, but in this nomination fight where there is though much pressure and competition i think if you handle it wrong, it can be a big problem, particularly with these young kids that are not experienced with national politics. heidi: at the end of the day scott walker proposition is what it is and conservatives may be watching this closely but if he becomes the candidate for the party, i think it will all come out in the wash. mark: and like you said who agrees with her family on everything? all right, we will be right back.
5:27 pm
5:28 pm
mark: we are always on remember, this program is on twice a day at 5:00 and at 8:00. we will be back tomorrow. a big political news day. iran, of course, and hillary
5:29 pm
clinton's interview. we will talk about it all right here "with all due respect on." until then sayonara. ♪
5:30 pm
alix: we are moments away from the closing bell. i'm alix steel. ♪ stocks shrugged off concerns about greece after voters said no to austerity demands. oil sinking below $60 a barrel. >> the question is, what did you miss? alix: the clock ticking for greece, creditors turning up the heat and it's up to prime minister alexis sippers -- tsipras
