7:02 pm
death to the u.s. and death to israel. what are your thoughts of even sitting down with them? >> well, the whole thing is a disgrace that a deal like this could be signed. we had so many advantages. they'll become a very, very rich nation. they're getting billions and billions of dollars. we have our inspector teams, you know, unless you got anytime, anyplace -- that's what you want. you have to have anytime, anyplace. you have to go in there and check. we have to give 28 and 24 day notices. i look at this deal, it's so ridiculous. not to mention the fact, which to me is very important, all of the money that they're getting, but how about the four prisoners? why aren't we getting our four prisoners out. kerry said he didn't want to complicate the negotiation for asking -- by asking for four prisoners. these guys are babies. we have babies. as you know they're celebrating in the streets of the iran. they're going wild in the streets. they made a phenomenal deal. it's just incredible.
7:03 pm
this is amateur night. i've never seen anything like it. >> let me go to the four prisoners you mentioned. major garret asked the president about it. the president got testy. >> can you tell the countries why you are content with all the fan fare around this deal to leave the conscious and strength of this nation unaccounted for in relation to the four americans. >> the notion i'm content as i celebrate with american citizens lang wishing in iranian jails, major, that's nonsense. you should know better. if the question is why we did not tie the negotiations to their release, think about the logic that that creates. suddenly iran realizes you know what? maybe we can get additional concessions out of the americans.
7:04 pm
>> well, we're giving them $150 billion. they continue to spin their s t center fuge and 24 days notice and they have to approve any inspections. wow. we couldn't get the four americans? >> well, the answer, i just hear it now for the first time, that's incredible to think that we would ask for them and they would get more. why would they get more? they're getting so much. i guarantee, if i were there h you'd have those prisoners. if i were president, you'd have those prisoners and they'd be back really, really fast. you remember ronald reagan when they had the hostages. as soon as he got -- once it was obvious he was in thereby they were let go. they had no respect for jimmy carter. they had a lot of respect for ronald reagan. i think it's incredible. his answer is incredible that it would have opened -- it's a simple thing. we want our prisoners back. they're thought doing you any good. they're in horrible jails from what i hear, the worst. these are four people that
7:05 pm
shouldn't be there in the first place. so, i mean, it's just incredible that he would say something like that. that's such a simple thing to do. and it would have been good for them. it would have softened the deal even from their standpoint. they don't want these prisoners, they don't need them. it's almost like they're taunting us by keeping these prisoners. >> what would a president trump have done differently from the outset and what would be the parameters of a trump deal? >> well, as you know, i did read and oftentimes everybody else is telling me it's the best book, but i did write the art of the deal. and they didn't write and they didn't read it and i will tell you, it's to me amazing, sean. because you look at the basics of what they've done and how they've done it. i would have doubled and tripled up the sanctions very easily. i would have waited for them to call us. i would have said we want the prisoners before we even start. they would have given them up in about ten minutes and we would have had a deal that would have
7:06 pm
been much better. what we're doing is just insane. and from what everything i read, at the end of the term they're going to be able to very easily produce nuclear weapons. which is the worst of all. this is a terrible deal for us. this is a potentially catastrophic deal for israel. israel has to be very nervous about what's going on with iran right now. >> let me go back to the issue of immigration which is i would argue catapulted you to the top. every single candidate is discussing the issue at length as a result of your position. this drug kingpin has pretty much threatened you and told you to be quiet. what is your response back to him? >> you know what? i'm bringing up is much more important than donald trump. my life -- frankly, what i'm doing is so important for the country. i'm so -- i appreciate your question the way you worded it. because the truth is, we wouldn't be talking about illegal immigration if it weren't for me. i brought it up. they hammered me and then they
7:07 pm
found out they were wrong. so many people have apologized to me over the last week. because, you know, when i made my statement they didn't read my statement. they read little pieces of my statement and tried to make me look bad. fortunately you have good reporters and some of the media was honest. a lot of people are apologizing to me. i brought up illegal immigration, i talk about mexico because i'm not talking about individual -- i'm talking about mexico is forcing people in that they don't want. and they want us to take care of those people. they want us to put those people in prisons. many years ago, cuba, fidel castro emptied his jails and sent them to us. in a much more sophisticated way, that's what mexico is doing also at the border. because they don't want the cost. the cost is tremendous. and then you look at what happened with the escape, it's a pretty sad state of affairs. had i not brought immigration up
7:08 pm
and illegal immigration in particular, you wouldn't be talking about it right now. you wouldn't be asking me the question. all of the candidates are trying to jump on. here's the problem, they're weak and they don't understand what to do. you have to build a wall and you have to have very, very strong people there. and you will be able to control it. and i had an idea recently, when they send illegals into our country, we charge mexico $100,000 for every illegal that crosses that border. because it's trouble. i want them to come in, let them be legal. they have to go through a process. and the hispanics agree with me that. i love the mexican people, their spirit and everything else. they agree. they work hard to become legal and they don't like what's happening at the border where all the illegals are flowing through. >> as you know, i was down at the border a dozen times everything from the rio grande to san diego where there was a tunnel that had been built. i was in the tunnel. when i sat through a briefing
7:09 pm
last year with governor perry, the one that president obama should have been at, i was told that since 2008, 645,000 crimes against texans alone, since 2008. why are people so resistant to acknowledge what is a simple, you know, unadulterated truth that crimes are happening because our border is not secure? why do you think there's so much difficulty and controversy in just stating that fact? >> first of all, governor perry did a terrible job when he was governor of texas, he could have done a lot better in terms of securing the border. he did a terrible job. whether he likes it or doesn't like it, i personally don't care. that job he did in terms of border secure was absolutely terrible. and what i've heard from a lot of people, you know, mr. shore has this incredible son who was killed by an illegal that came in, this unbelievable young guy
7:10 pm
that was going to go the college on a scopholarship to stanford. all of this wiped out. what he told me is when people hear it's an illegal, they leave him alone. they don't do anything. they were going really after the guy. as soon as they found out he was illegal, our law enforcement didn't want to do anything. they don't want to work the same way. i'm saying, what is this a double standard? the answer is you have a double standard. i've heard this from five or six other groups. we had a in accordance last week with five unbelievable families whose children had been -- were killed by illegals. they said the same thing. as soon as the government found out they were illegal it became like, let's sort of leave it alone. they got very little cooperation. you'll have to explain that to your viewers. because why this would happen, it wouldn't happen with me. believe me. and mexico -- go ahead. >> i'm not trying to interrupt
7:11 pm
you. i want to go to the broader question here though. one of your major criticisms of your fellow candidates in the republican party is pretty much they're career politicians. they've been timid, weak and ineffective. when you look at the major issues that our next president will have, getting jobs for americans, the debt, deficit, healthcare, immigration, all education, all of these issues, national security, which is huge, what -- where -- how will you deal with the economy and national security? >> i'll bring trade back in the country. nobody's going to do it like me. a rival network of yours, i won't mention the name. they did a poll and i kill everybody double and triple on things like trade and economics. anything having to do with financial and leadership. i won on leadership by a long shot. you have to bring trade in. you have to bring our jobs back
7:12 pm
from china, including mexico. ford is building a $2.5 billion plant in mexico right now. tennessee just lost a big beautiful auto plant from a german manufacturer, car manufacturer going to mexico. it's going to go instead of tennessee. tennessee expected to get it, they're not getting it. we need these built in the united states. nobody can do that like i do that. that's what i do. when everyone looked at my financials, they were stunned. >> i wasn't stunned i knew you're a billionaire. can you balance our budget? can you save our social security. can you get the americans jobs? how kickquickly could you turn around? >> i want to save social security with the cuts. i'm the only one that can do it. i'm going to bring and jobs back. you know, one of the things i
7:13 pm
point out is that you have to have an ability to do that. jeb bush is not going to be able to negotiate with china. these guys are killers in china. they take advantage of us with their manipulation of the currency. so many other things. jeb bush is not going to be able to bring jobs back. that i can tell you right now u. i will and i'll wribring them b big league. look at our gross -- gdp last quarter was negative. you don't see that. you look at china where they go up 7%, 8% and they consider themselves a failure which is what happens. we went nevagative, we're getti smaller. >> if we have another quarter of negative growth that's called a recession. >> by the way, with more people. sean, with more people. >> good point. >> we're getting smaller but we have more people. >> how -- in your consciousness in your thought process when you
7:14 pm
were contemplating this run, you see 93 million americans out of the labor force. 46 million on food stamps, how important are those people to you? you're a belliillionaire, how important are those americans that are struggling just to survive? >> very important to me. you look at that labor force, it's ridiculous. they look for a job. the statistics -- i don't know if they're done for some politician. i don't know when this started. you look for job, you can't find one, you give up looking for a job. people have given up. they're great people, they want to work and make good money. they can't find a job. they're essentially for statistical purposes, they're considered employed. so the number doesn't reflect. somebody actually last week said we have a 40% unemployment. i've been saying 19% to 21%. somebody came out last week and said we have a 40% and they might be right. our country is suffering. we're going down. we have people that are incompetent doing it.
7:15 pm
if you have hillary clinton or jeb bush, it's going to be more of the same. and we're not going to have a country left anymore. >> more with mr. trump coming up in moments. first fox news senior correspondent geraldo rivera is in mexico to report on the m manhunt for el chapo. and a disturbing undercover video reveals a planned parenthood employee talking about selling parts of aborted fetuses. we'll check in with governor huckabee on that and much more as we continue. i brought in some protein to get us moving. i'm new ensure active high protein. i help you recharge with nutritious energy and strength. i'll take that. yeeeeeah! new ensure active high protein. 16 grams of protein and 23 vitamins and minerals. ensure. take life in. the and preening is a must. long winter hibernation... instantly, smoother, beautiful skin starts to be revealed. and the mating process begins. the dr. scholl's dreamwalk express pedi

7:18 pm
police arresting 50 people today against protests. many greeks are upset because of tax hike and spending cuts. the cash strapped country is facing bankruptcy. a massive manhunt is underway in mexico right now. following the daring escape of drug lord joaquin el chapo guzman. 10,000 agents have been put on high alert. there are more than 100 checkpoints at major highways throughout the country. mexico's interior minister passing out 100,000 photographs of el chapo. the drug lord escaped saturday through a mile lung tunnel dug to come up under the shower of his prison. i'm jackie ibanez, now back to "hannity." welcome back. the manhunt for the mexican drug lord joaquin el chapo guzman who escaped from a prison over the weekend. you can see on the video. earlier today mexican
7:19 pm
authorities released the footage of el chapo in his cell before his escape. as you can see he walks back and forth and goes down and he's gone. joining us now on the ground in mexico tonight is fox news senior correspondent geraldo rivera. this guy is extremely dangerous. he also now is threatened donald trump. what's going on there? >> he's not only extremely dangerous and threatening the donald, but you know he's one of the richest men in the world. he's got a billion dollars according to forbes magazine. engineer a remarkable digging a tunnel from this maximum security prison one mile underground to a house that i visited earlier. that they built from scratch. so this was a tremendous infrastructure project. they joke here in mexico this country is traumatized by this
7:20 pm
by the way -- they joke they should have him finish the mexico city subway. two thousand tons of dirt, which would have taken four guys working ten hours a day a full year to do. he did it. he escaped. not only did they dig that tunnel, but they made it come up at precisely the right point. the one corner of his cell where the security camera could not see the ground right by the toilet. he's dangerous, sean, he is at large. and he is in many ways, i think, a kind of the model for what mexico is right now. it's a dysfunctional state. it is in a sad state. the president has lost all credibility in losing his number one prisoner, el chapo. and now this country has to pick up the pieces and find out how this guy managed that. because he could not have done it, sean, without help pretty high up the food chain. >> he couldn't have done it
7:21 pm
without help. let's look at this here, they not only built the tunnel into the most secure prison that they have in mexico, the second time he's escaped. they had a motorcycle inside the tunnel to get him out of there? and nobody heard a thing? come on. >> this is a man who is, i think, by far, the most powerful person in mexico. he has as many guns, some say, as the mexican army. when they have gun fights he out guns them. he's the drug lord, the ruthless homicidal drug lord who has run a drug car tell for many years. the only way he was captured is with the help of u.s. intelligence. now, everybody is scrambling to find out where he is, is he still in mexico. has he gone back to hide on the pacific coast of the gulf of
7:22 pm
california. where is he? will he -- i'm telling you, these threats against people like donald trump must be taken seriously. these people are the real deal. these are ruthless murdering organized criminals. and they can do the same thing the islamic terrorists do, they could get some kid to take a gun on a suicide mission and do something awful. >> he had a lighted tunnel built under the prison. air conditioned i read. an air conditioned tunnel for the comfort of el chapo. and a motorcycle and nobody knew anything. now, i want to go back to this issue of how dangerous he is. everything i've read he's dealing heroin, are multibillionaire. he takes his business seriously. now you have the issue of donald trump. doesn't this validate in a lot of ways a lot of what trump is saying, that the mexican government is corrupt, that they have enabled all these people that are poor, some looking for
7:23 pm
jobs, people with good intentions, also criminals now have access to the united states and mexico hasn't lifted a fing finger to stop it? >> there is no doubt that this is a country suffering from malignant corruption. corruption that goes all the way up to the top. this would not have been possible without the active co-conspiracy of people in power. now, the real danger, to me on the border, is the disfunction of this guovernment the fact it doesn't work anymore. that is a real national security threat to the united states of america. if mexico gets back to the violence of the war ezcar tell days it will spill over. it's -- what trump says about the border, is -- by this graphic example proven at least to be partially true. >> i think it's more than
7:24 pm
partially true. the crime statistics bear this out. since 2008, 645,000 crimes against texans. it's a clear issue. it's not about the people that want to come here, work, have a better life for themselves and their family. the question is we read about the kidnappings and killings and hostage taking that goes on in mexico, is this guy one of the ones mainly responsible? >> he is definitely one of the ones we are losing our satellite to you. we'll talk more tomorrow about this. but there is no doubt. that el chapo is the real deal. a ruthless killer on the loose because of official corruption and incompetence. it has to be addressed i think by the president, sean. coming up i go one-on-one with the one and only juan

7:38 pm
statement that reads a well-funded group established for the purpose of damaging planned parenthood's mission has produced a heavily edited videotape that falsely portrayed planned parenthood's participation in tissue donation program. joining is governor mike huckabee. a video of a planned parenthood executive talking about selling hearts and lungs and livers and saying, well, laws are up to interpretation. not caring that it is against the law to do such. what's your interpretation? >> it's shocking to watch this video. i think what's most painful is watching this person medically trained talking about the destruction of a human life and the harvesting of human body
7:39 pm
parts as if she were talking about parts to a buick. she sits there with fork in her hand chomping down on a salad. so indifferent to her topic and, sean, the thing that is just stunning, is that she's describing in detail how that when they're removing this human baby from the mother, they're careful not to crush certain parts because they don't want to crush the liver, the heart, the lungs, because those are valuable parts of the baby they can then turn around and sell >> they go into great detail. they use ultrasound -- i agree with you. this is as grotesque as anything i've seen. to go into detail, while eating, about using ultrasound so as not to damage the body parts, the lungs, the liver, the heart. they use the forceps in the right way. i also thought the left's argument on abortion was this was just a blob of tissue.
7:40 pm
apparently it's valuable tissue and completely formed body parts we're talking about, right? >> keep in focus this is an illegal activity if you're selling body parts. it's why the organ donation system in america is just that, it's a donation. you cannot buy a cornea, a heart, a liver, you can't buy lungs. you have to get in line and it has to be through a donation. this is disturbing. i would love to know, this president, why doesn't he order his attorney general to investigate planned parenthood and suspend all federal funds to this hideous organization who talks about their mission and services. it's apparently their mission is making money and the services are the -- is the destruction of human babies. it's appalling. >> governor, federal law bans
7:41 pm
the sale of human organs, as well as commercial trafficking of body parts from an aborted fetus. i agree. we spend hundreds of millions of dollars that go to fund planned parenthood. this is against the law. don't we need an attorney general that will initiate a investigation? isn't she admitting on camera that she broke the law? >> absolutely. and, if the attorney general won't, the local prosecutor. this is criminal activity that needs to be carefully investigated. and, you know, i know planned parenthood is falling all over themselves trying to say this was highly edited. you explain to us, give us a clear understanding. how you can justify what this doctor was saying as she sat there fork in hand and casually ate her lunch. i just find that i would like to believe, sean, that even people
7:42 pm
who are for abortion, if they find there's a justification for that, surely they could speak out against this kind of savage behavior. >> conventional wisdom if you listen to political pundits, it's maybe not the best strategy for republican presidential candidates to talk about social issues. you're out spoken about this issue. others have been -- i know scott walker said something as well. others have been quiet up to this point. between the gay marriage ruling and this, do you believe these social issues will be at the forefront of this campaign you're running? >> well, i think we'll talk mostly about jobs and national security. i'm not going to be silent about the very foundation of our civilization. what we're seeing with the destruction of human life, if we're not a civilized people. if we don't act with some level of decency toward nature and nature's god, which is words

right from the declaration of independence, then we don't have the foundation of our country. i mean, everything that we stand for is based on being a moral people. and without that, our country can't make it. i don't care what kind of economy we have. you can't separate the money of this country from the morality of this country. and if there are presidential candidates who want to just say, well, we just want to focus only on the economy, never bring up the issues of integrity and honor and decency, i'm sure there's going to be place on the stage for them. but i think we can be inclusive and talk about the full spectrum of issues that make us a great country. one thing that makings america historically a great country is we believe that some things are right and some things are wrong. taking the life of an innocent unborn child, treating a human being as disposable and expendable, giving them no intrinsic worth, we're a better

elecerate at large where people strongly have an unfavorable view of you. my question is, how do you get them to look at donald trump differently to say wait a minute, let me tell you what i'm going to do. >> those numbers have gotten better and people get to understand what i'm doing. 40% of the people think i'm doing this for fun. this isn't fun. it's costing me a lot of money. macy's doesn't mind having weak quarters. macy's is a disgrace. i think people shouldn't shop there anymore. they were very disloyal. and frankly in so many different ways. nbc, univision, so many companies and they're weak and they're ineffective people.

when people see what i want to do for the country, those numbers and you see them they've gotten much better. they'll continue to go up. a lot of people think i'm just having a good time. this isn't a good time. speaking with you, i think you're a fantastic guy. this isn't really fun. i got better things to do. >> great. >> i have other things i could be doing. you know? you see numbers are getting very good now. i think soon they're going to be quite good. hillary was the worst secretary of state in the history of our country. i'm the only one that is going to beat her, sean. nobody else is going to beat her and she was terrible. yet, very to go through this process and remember this. jeb bush will never take us to the promise land, no matter what you do, it's not going to happen. >> how bad is america in terms of it's shape. you think about making america great again.
