6:00 am
supreme politics, president trump prepares to pick his second supreme court nominee. >> we have a very excellent list of great talent. >> who could solidify conservative control of the nation's highest court. i always look for judges who respect precedent. >> a republican who could be the deciding vote, senator susan collins responds live next. plus, immigration outrage, protesters take to the streets nationwide. as lawmakers and a judge demand
6:01 am
calls to reunite families faster. >> i could only imagine what it would be like to have my breast feeding child ripped away from me. >> what the trump administration's plan? tammy duckworth will be here in moments. and trump's golden age, president trump celebrates a week of weekend and judicial victories. >> the red wave is happening. >> as democrats face a growing activist left. >> we have to create a lot of pressure. >> is the trump presidency shaping democratic party more than the gop? ♪ >> hello, i'm jake tapper. the state of our union is gearing up for a summer fight. president trump is taking a working weekend at his golf club in bedminister new jersey and plans to announce a nominee to replace justice anthony kennedy on the supreme court only eight days from now on july 9th. the president spoke over the phone to don mcgahn and expected
6:02 am
to interview one or two candidates for the seelt this weekend. democrats worn warn it could put abortion rights and affirmative action at risk. one day after justice kennedy announced his retirement, the president hosted a group of senators whose votes likely will decide whether his nominee is confirmed. three are democrats facing tough re-election battles in red states that trump won in 2016. and two are republican women, lisa murkowski and susan collins, they have voted against the president's agenda in the past. and republican senator susan collins of maine is joining me now. senator collins, thanks so much for joining us. i want to start ontd white house meeting you have with president trump on thursday night about the supreme court vacancy. it's no secret you could be a, if not the deciding vote on the nomination, what did president trump tell you to try to get your vote? >> well, the president wreel l
6:03 am
really was soliciting my views on the type of nominee i was looking for. i emphasized i wanted a nominee that would respect precedent, a fundamental tenant of our judicial system and encouraged the president to broaden his list beyond the list of 25 potential nominees that has been public for some time. >> well, that list of 25 names, let's talk about it for one second. are you con fortable with everyone on that list? >> no, i am not. now some of the people on the list i have not vetted at all at this point. one of them i voted against years ago. and i would have to do a great deal more work on many of them. >> president trump says he's not going to ask the candidates whether they would vote to
6:04 am
overturn roe v. wade. listen to what he told me about this issue during the first days of his candidacy on this show. take a listen. >> i know you're opposed to abortion. how important is that issue to you now when president trump picks supreme court justices. would that be a litmus test? >> it is -- >> president trump saying then he was a candidate now a president saying abortion is a litmus test for him. you say roe is settled law. given the president's comments, is it fair to expect that any nominee he selects will vote to overturn roe versus wade? >> well, the president told me in our meeting that he would not ask that question. and that is what he has most recently said on the advice of his attorney. so i think what he said as the candidate may not have been informed by the legal advice
6:05 am
that he now has that it would be inappropriate for him to ask a nominee how he or she would rule on a specific issue. >> with all due respect the supreme court overturns its own rulings overtime and overruled 200 decisions, once just last week. and it is a stated goal of president trump and vice president pence to appoint supreme court justices who will vote to overturn roe versus wade. whether they said it on the campaign trail or say it now, it's almost immaterial, it's a stated goal. take a listen to vice president pence, this is him campaigning for the job in 2016. >> we appoint strict constructionists to the supreme court of united states as donald trump intends to. i believe we'll see roe versus wade resigned to the ash heap of history. >> a lot of women around the country are looking to you right
6:06 am
now, seven in ten women want roe versus wade to stay intact. what do you say to those women who say what are you going to do here? how are you going to protect this right? >> well, first of all, let me say that there's big difference between overturning some precedents such as plescy versus ferguson which was overturned in the school desegregation case in brown versus board of education, versus overturning a ruling that has been settled law for 46 years. 45 years. and it involves a constitutional right and has been reaffirmed by the court 26 years ago. and indeed, justice roberts has made very clear that he considers roe v. wade to be settled law. i would not support a nominee
6:07 am
who demonstrated hostility to roe v. wade because that would mean to mee their judicial philosophy did not include a respect for established decisions, established law. and i believe that that is the very important fundamental tenant of our judicial system, which as chief justice roberts says, helps to promote stability and even handedness. >> you will not support anyone who has demonstrated hostility towards roe versus wade but there are plenty of justices that the federalist society and other experts likely think will vote to overturn roe versus wade but don't have a record of hostility towards roe versus wade, for instance, don't you think neil gorsuch, for whom you voted, don't you think he'll vote to overturn roe v. wade if given the chance?
6:08 am
>> i actually don't. i had a very long discussion with justice gorsuch in my office and he pointed out to me that he is a co-author of the whole book on precedent. so someone who devotes that much time to writing a book on precedent, i think understands how important a principle that is in our judicial system. >> you know that there are -- >> go ahead, i'm sorry. >> there are many judges who have said to me that if you are not unhappy with some of your decisions, then you're not a good judge. i think judges have to have the ability to put aside their personal views and rule on the facts of the case with fidelity to the law and the constitution. >> i don't have to tell you this. but you're going to get a lot of pressure from groups and individuals who support abortion rights and one of the things that they think about you is
6:09 am
that you get played by these judges and that ultimately, if you vote to support whoever president trump nominates presuming the person comes from the list of 25, that one of your longest lasting legacy is likely going to be you vote to confirm a justice that ultimately tipped the balance of political power on court and voted to overturn roe. >> i know that's what the left is saying and that's just so at odds with my record. i have -- year after year been named the most bipartisan member of the whole united states senate. i have proved my independence and more important, i cared deeply about who serves on the court. i had voted against justices and -- judges and i voted for them. i supported both of president obama's appointments to the
6:10 am
supreme court. and i always have the same kinds of discussions in my office. i do a lot of work on the record of the appointee and i asked probing questions to try to determine whether they are going to be an activist judge with an agenda which i don't want on either the left or the right. i want a judge who will apply the law to the facts of the case with fidelity to the constitution. roe v. wade is a constitutional right that is well established. and no less authority that chief justice roberts said that repeatedly at his confirmation hearing. >> you're on the senate intelligence committee. i want your views about the new report in the "washington post" saying american intelligence communities concluded north korea does not intend to denuclearize and working on ways
6:11 am
to conceal how many nuclear weapons and production facilities it has fewer than three weeks after prds trump declared the threat is over. what do you know about this and do you think the president is getting played by north korea? >> this is a very troubling report. there's no doubt about it. and north korea has a long history of cheating on agreements that it's made with previous administrations. i supported the president talking with the north korean dictator because i do believe that has the potential for increasing our safety and eventually leading to the denuclearization of north korea. but there's no doubt that in order to achieve that goal, we need verifiable unimpeded reliable inspections and without those inspections, we can have no guarantee that north korea is
6:12 am
not cheating once again. >> when you see president trump say things like the threat -- the nuclear threat from north korea is over, are you concerned he's getting played? >> i don't think that the threat is over. and i think that the president has advisers who will come to him, brief him about these alleged new findings and that he will be cautious in proceeding and he should be because the record of north korea is one of broken promises. i will point out that there have not been tests of nuclear weapons nor ballistic missiles since the president met with the north korean dictator. >> senator susan collins of maine, thanks for your time we always appreciate it. >> thank you. >> one democratic senator and mom says the president's immigration policy is deeply personal.
6:13 am
joins a protest with her baby in her arms, tammy duckworth, demanding answers from the trump administration. has she gotten any response? we will ask her next. paying too much for insurance you don't even understand? well, esurance makes it simple and affordable. in fact, drivers who switched from geico to esurance saved an average of $412. that's auto and home insurance for the modern world. esurance. an allstate company. click or call. paying too much for insurance that isn't the right fit? well, esurance makes finding the right coverage easy. in fact, drivers who switched from geico to esurance saved an average of $412. that's auto and home insurance for the modern world. esurance. an allstate company. click or call. esurance. an allstate company. you don't want to live with mom and dad forever, do you?
6:14 am
i'm making smoothies! so, how can i check my credit score? credit karma. don't worry, it's free. hmmmmm. credit karma. give yourself some credit. it all started when donald trump tore thousands of immigrant children
6:15 am
away from their parents. we the people challenged him in court and in the streets. then trump was forced to admit that his policy was wrong. and he caved. the court just ruled that trump must reunite every family he broke apart. (clock ticking rapidly) time is ticking. these children must see their parents again, and they're counting on us to act quickly. these children must see their parents again, this is not a this is the destruction of a cancer cell by the body's own immune system, thanks to medicine that didn't exist until now. and today can save your life. ♪
6:16 am
♪ welcome back to "state of
6:17 am
the union." thousands of protesters across the nation took to the streets demanding an end to the president's zero tolerance immigration policy at the border which resulted in more than 2,000 children being taken from their parents. chants of we care and abolish i.c.e. rang through a senate office building. also in the crowd democratic lawmakers including tammy duckworth, democrat of illinois who brought her newborn baby this as more leerds embrace calls from the far left to speak o out and call for the abolition of i.c.e. >> we need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom, starting by replacing i.c.e. with something that reflects our morality. >> joining me now democratic senator tammy duckworth of illinois and an iraq war veteran. i want to recognize your service, i know it's not specifically a veteran's day but
6:18 am
i think of people who fight for freedoms. thanks you so much. >> thanks. >> let's start with the fact that your fellow democratic senators joined the call to abolish and replace i.c.e., do you agree? >> i think if you abolish i.c.e. as an executive agency it reflects the policies of the white house, of the prtd. you abolish i.c.e. now and still have the president with the same failed policies whatever you replace it with will replace what the wants to do. >> so, no you don't support abolishing this? >> i think there are other things to do before we get to that point, first of which, you have someone in the white house who has these policies which are horrendous and he has to fix and children are still in cages and nursing babies separated from their moms. >> let's talk about this. you sent a letter to the trump administration demanding answers on exactly how they are goinging to reunite the children with the parents asking for a plan to have families in touch within 72 hours. today marks the deadline of your
6:19 am
demand of the administration. have you heard anything back? frankly, do you even think they have a plan to reunite these families? >> that's precisely my concern, that they don't have a plan. that's my suspicion. i don't think they even really know where all of the children are and who these children belong to. remember, some of these children are so young they don't even know their parents names. we could end up with kids separated from their parents for a very long time. many have already entered into the foster care system. i have not heard from the administration and i'm deeply concerned that these children are going to remain separated from their parents. >> will you support senator ted cruz aesz plan to keep families together and double the number of judges at the border to move the cases along more quickly? wouldn't that solve the problem? >> i haven't seen the details of his plan. i can tell you if we have someone seeking asylum, they should be heard in a timely manner and we should process that case. in the meantime not be separating families. >> i want to turn to the new vacancy at the supreme court hours after kennedy announced
6:20 am
his retirement. pulled out this tweet taking a swipe at mitch mcconnell, using his oep words to argue for delaying the vote on the nominee until after the mid terms. the american people should have a voice in the selection of the next supreme court, what mcconnell said but did # -- what did he do, #scot us and you did #kennedy. mitch mcconnell said that you and other critics are using that quote against him and that policy against him are all wrong, this is very different from that. take a listen. >> this is not 2016. there aren't the final months of a second term constitutional lame duck presidency with a presidential election fast approaching. we're right in the middle of this president's very first term. >> how do you respond? >> i think mitch mcconnell is someone who is very cynical and will do whatever he needs to do. he's demonstrated that.
6:21 am
who i'd want to talk to are my colleagues who are casting their votes, very consequentially. lisa murkowski, i would see to her, this should not be done before a major election back when fs merrick garland, that this would be a political football. let's listen to that. we're talking about someone on the supreme court could end roe v. wade, could help to overturn much of the legislation that protects not just women's right to choose but health care. there are many cases running through the justice system right now and i would say to my colleagues who have shown real bravery, both susan collins and lisa murkowski incredible bravery in the fext couple of years in the senate, don't just trust what somebody says in a conversation trying to get your vote is what's going to happen when they are on the supreme court. >> what did you think of susan collins, what she told me, she didn't think chief justice roberts who vote to overturn roe
6:22 am
versus wade because he assured her he respects precedent. >> i would i is a justice gore such told her he would respect precedent but voted against precedent this week with a janice case, if anything, this president, this administration is all about overturning precedents. and i don't think that a president should be able to appoint someone who could potentially sit on a case and decide a case against that sitting president. i think that we should wait and let the american people have their say and let's get through the election with just four months away and that's not a long time. then let's take a look at these nominees. >> there are obviously a lot of democrats from red states, states that trump won who are up for re-election this year. there's going to be a lot of pressure on them, heitcamp and manchin from weapon weapst virg. should they vote the way that they need to vote to win
6:23 am
re-election if it comes down to that or do you think they should vote the way their party wants them to vote? >> i will tell you what i've learned in my short time in the senate, all three of them vote in whatever they need to do to take care of the people of their state. they put their constituents first. and i've seen real bravery from the three of them as well. manchin, for example, has said time and again that he will protect health care for the people of west virginia. same with heidi heitcamp. they put their own states and constituents first. i ask them to vote for their constituents and they will know which way to vote then. >> there are obviously a lot of shock waves in the democratic party tuesday night when 28-year-old democratic socialist alexandria ocasi off-cortez, against joe crowley. is this the future of the democratic party? >> i think it's a future of the
6:24 am
party in the bronx where she is. i think that we as legislators needs to listen to our constituency and get out there. i think what she did, she did the hard work and pounded the pavement and she was out there talking to everyone about constituents and i think that was a difference. she turned out voters and reflected the needs of her district. >> are you concerned that your party is going too far to the left to win in the mid-terms or win back the white house? >> i think that you can't win in the white house without the midwest and i don't think that you can go too far to the left and still win the midwest coming from a midwestern state. you need to talk to the industrial midwest and listen to the people there. and in order to win an election nationwide. >> this is the last day of your maternity leave. >> it is. >> you had a baby in april and push for senate rules to be changed so senators can bring children onto the floor and your baby on the floor. how are your male colleagues adapting to the new role? >> they are great and been very bipartisan about it. i hope they keep in mind when we start looking at the supreme
6:25 am
court nominee of roe v. wade is important to me. i would not have both of my beautiful children and newborn daughter without ivf and the abolishment could deny those who use ivf the ability to seek fertility treatments. >> it's an honor to have you here on this july 4th weekend. thank you for your service. >> thank you. >> supreme court ruled in favor of trump's travel ban and handed him another pick to at the time high court. the president getting more powerful. but could it come back to hurt the republicans in some way? we'll discuss next.

year and a half ago, they said i was an interloper. how bad is that? and now they say, you will admit, i number of polls that he's the most powerful most popular republican in the history of the party. and a little while ago, i was an interloper. >> that was president trump in a rally discussing his value to the gop after a week in which key court decisions and retirement announcement, positioned trump to become one of the most consequential republican presidents either. amanda, let me start with you, you're a republican and frequent critic of president trump. but does the fact that he will have a legacy by the mid-terms of tax cut and likely two
6:31 am
supreme court justices, make him somebody that the republicans rightly are rallying around? >> yeah, i mean, even for trump's skeptical republicans you have to say, was it worth it? and to change the course of the court for a generation or more, certainly causes people to rethink things for every bad trump tweet, you can look at the future of that bench and make a coherent argument that it's worth it. >> and all of that -- i have to ask you, this week we also saw the court uphold the president's travel ban saying that he had the right to do it. what impact might that have and what impact might this new supreme court fight have on democrats? demoralizing or you know, getting out the vote? >> think it's getting out the vote. you already see a momentum with the democratic party and base. this is a base election when you think about mid-terms, this is one more thing, i have to say to be honest, the scotus has not
6:32 am
been something that has ginned up the base, it's been an issue for sure for republicans we have to put that out there and make sure that folks are aware that everything is at stake when you're looking at the time scotus pick, everything for decades is on stake, abortion, worker's rights, everything, same-sex marriage, lgbtq rights, everything we worked so hard now could be gone. >> what's your argument to republicans who say well, you know, i'm not crazy about his tweets and not crazy about his personal behavior but he is very consequential and doing a lot of things i want him to. >> i'm not sure i'm hearing that from my republican colleagues quite a number of them have expressed concerns about some of the things the president is tweeting about. i think frankly, what happened with the tax is really creating a bigger income inequality
6:33 am
between the haves and havenotes, the legacy this president is creating is turning back the clock 100 years and creating an era of disenfranchisement. i'm hoping the voters will look at this and this will motivate them. if this will not, i don't know what will. >> you've been a supporter of the president from the very beginning. >> today in the front page of the qulgts new york tile"new yo about how consequential this is, that dick durbin says he's reshaping the democratic party, okay? the court this past week the decision in janice, cutting the funding saying that public sector union no longer allowed to take money from their employees for dues. that's going to debill tate the party. that's a top-down function. the parties govern from top-down. you'll lose that support as well. the earlier point about the president in the judiciary, dana
6:34 am
bash had a piece down where 12 judges in 2017, no other president has appointed more judges in one year than this president, 12. he's 88 waiting in the senate to be confirmed and did about 50, 45 more on the circuit and the district court. so in terms of reshaping the judiciary, people look at the supreme court, about 99.9% of the cases are heard at district and appellate courts. >> one of the reasons why the trump presidency continues to give his supporters, maybe except you, a headache because there might be a big win in a great week and then there's an outright falsehood. look at the tweet from president trump. i never push the republicans in the house to vote for the immigration bill. goodlatte one or two. three days before that another tweet, same account, house republicans should pass the
6:35 am
goodlatte 2, a complete contradiction and this is one of the things you as a conservative republican a trump skeptic are concerned about, the standard of truth. >> and also as someone that wants to see stuff done on immigration. this is chaotic and confusing. there's no game plan to secure the border. i do think -- on both sides. so as a tea party type republican who has worries about trump, i know people held their nose and wept for them because they believed he would build a wall. those sets of tweets shows that he has no capability of doing so. >> does it matter? >> i think this is the problem and why we can't negotiate with this president. nobody can believe what he says. it's obvious he's lying outright. >> come on -- >> came down to talk to republicans in a closed door session and as he was walking out tried to talk to the president about the policy. i saw firsthand the press conference he did where one of my colleagues talking about the immigration plan. this is the hard part in dealing
6:36 am
with this president. his constant lying and what can we trust and not trust. >> listen, those tweets are complete contradictions. >> i'll focus on what the president proposed, path for citizenship for -- >> but the problem is democrats don't -- even republicans are concerned about trying to negotiate with him because he contradicts himself. >> this is the president, a negotiator, what he's doing. where are the democrats and house republicans on the president's proposal? the "washington post" said listen, should have taken the deal, a little bit of wall money for daca deal and immigration? path to citizenship? >> and the democrats turn it away. >> no because -- >> hold on -- >> no. first of all donald trump created the crisis with daca. >> no, he didn't. barack obama created the crisis. >> let me finish. >> barack obama created the chris sis. >> let me finish. he created the crisis by saying it was working -- >> it wasn't working. was unconstitutional. >> then he asked for a
6:37 am
bipartisanship and he was given bipartisan senators on both sides came to him and said, hey, here's what we have. he wanted a -- they proposed that and mentioned ts then hear about countries from brown and brown countries. he doesn't know what he wants. he is so contradictory when he says one thing then changes to another thing. he gets -- they gave him what -- >> you're just -- here's the point. to say that -- it's my turn. is it my turn? >> let david get the last word. >> to say this president created the daca crisis. >> he did. >> is false. >> let's talk about -- >> corinne, my turn. president obama unconstitutionally put forward the daca program. he even acknowledged at the time, probably can't do this, can't get dreerm dreamers do, true or false.
6:38 am
>> it works. it worked. >> unconstitutional. >> until when and what that action will be needed will be decided by congress. >> the court struck down deferred action for parents and they were in the process of striking down daca. >> they upheld daca. >> let's let the congresswoman have the last word. >> there's a current bipartisan solution can't get a vote on in the house. >> back to the point. >> created this crisis. >> this president was in a room at the white house and -- and one said i'm fine, we're doing clean dream. three hours later went back to -- >> exactly. >> the point he's not fixing it. but he's not fixing it. >> let's take a quick break. we have a lot to talk about in tensions in the democratic party after a progressive young outsider toppled a leader. could a wave wit out the democratic establishment. >> i'm female and progressive and i'm -- and the rest. what's your problem?
6:39 am
two out of three ain't bad.
6:40 am
6:41 am
6:42 am
i we worked with pg&eof to save energy because wenie. wanted to help the school. they would put these signs on the door to let the teacher know you didn't cut off the light. the teachers, they would call us the energy patrol. so they would be like, here they come, turn off your lights! those three young ladies were teaching the whole school about energy efficiency. we actually saved $50,000. and that's just one school, two semesters, three girls. together, we're building a better california.
6:43 am
i think that we're in the middle of a movement in this country, a lot of really exciting races with extremely similar dynamics as mine. it's not just one district. >> nobody's district is representative of somebody else's district. it's just a sign of vitality of our party, not a rubber stamp. >> the new generation of democrats and the singing different tunes on the direction of the democratic party but is the division a sign of a new movement or just as pelosi says vitality. my panel is with me. congresswoman, you were alexandria ortasio-cortez before she was. you ran against an establishment candidate for your congressional seat. you were to his left and you beat him in the primary or the runoff and then you are now the president of the freshman class. my question for you, does the democratic party, especially in
6:44 am
the house need new leadership? >> i think the democratic party is diverse, i think there's a lot of young members of congress who would be great in leadership positions, that's something that we have seen nancy pelosi try to get in the last term. and so there's no doubt there's hunger for new faces. there's no doubt there's hunger for new voices but we're a party of ininclusion and pretty diverse, whether on age or race and it's so great to see women taking over this and women coming ahead. we saw that in what happened to alexandria, i'm credit to her, she started early and knocked on doors and spoke to voters in her district. something i have a lost experience with. >> the congresswoman being diplomatic. let me ask you because maybe -- >> as she should be. >> maybe you won't plo maltic. do they need new leadership? >> i think they need to work on it absolutely. you have a situation when you look at alexandria and say young people are not waiting anymore. they are not going to be --
6:45 am
they've been told -- >> waiting a long time. >> saying we're going to go out there at 28 took a chance. she had no idea if she would win or not. i talk about issues that matter in my district and it worked. she spent time in her district. she shook hands and the district has changed in the last 20 years, which we're seeing in a lot of different districts across the country. that matters, talking to the voters and issues that matter and the thing is people are saying the issues she talked about only mattered in her zriktd. it's not true. she talked about fair wages and talked about health care and equality. that matters across the board with the democratic party. >> david, i want your reaction, one of the things going on here, not just generational, a lot of these candidates are more progressive. >> sure. >> as certainly the congress woman was and more progressive than her main opponent in her race and also the same is true with ortasio-cortez. president trump seizing on the number of democrats seeming to move to the left, some of them calling for the abolishment and
6:46 am
