6:00 pm
follow me on facebook, instagram and twitter. "justice with judge jeanine" is next, and remember, i'm watters and this is my world. overwhelmingly positive reaction pouring in from across the nation and the world after the president delivers a landmark address to the leaders of more than 50 muslim majority nations. ahead tonight on "justice," reaction and analysis from
6:01 pm
muslim scholars, military experts, lawmakers and pulitzer winning prize reporter who also lived in the middle east. first, president trump on the choice he believes the muslim world must now make. >> terrorism has spread all across the world, but the path to peace begins right here on this ancient soil in this sacred land. america is prepared to stand with you, in pursuit of shared interests and common security, but the nations of the middle east cannot wait for american power to crush this enemy for them. the nations of the middle east will have to decide what kind of future they want for themselves, for their country, and frankly, for their families and for their children. it's a choice between two futures, and it is a choice america cannot make for you.
6:02 pm
a better future is only possible if your nations drive out terrorists and drive out the extremists. drive them out. drive them out of your places of worship. drive them out of your communities. drive them out of your holy land. and drive them out of this earth. judge jeanine: joining me now, muslim scholar and author of in the land of invisible women, a female doctor's journey in the saudi kingdom. dr. ahmed. doctor, thanks for b you know, drive them out, drive them out. also it is a choice america cannot make for you. what was the message of the president? >> overwhelmingly, the message is that the president understands we have inside islam a profound and dangerous
6:03 pm
ideology islamism, and it is muslims to eliminate it to evict it and abandon it but the united states is supporting us. it was one of the most remarkable speeches they think you and i are ever going to see in our lifetimes. this is a once in a generation event. judge jeanine: what do you think of the way it was received in the middle east? how do you think all of the 50 muslim leaders reacted to this president's speech? >> i think they were hanging on his every word. dazzling. it went far beyond my expectations. some of the language, he spoke to us as muslims speak, talked about those who honor god, talked about the faith of the soul when innocent young people are lured into extremism, the condemnation of the soul. talked about restoring values to humanity that are universal and precious in islam and he had the courage to do that at the epicenter of islam, of course not mecca but symbolic with the custodian of the two
6:04 pm
holy sites right there is astonishing. judge jeanine: when you look at king salman, running to the end of the red carpet, not running, it was with his cane. there is already or so it appears this trust. why saudi arabia now seems to be aligning with the united states? what has happened in the last eight years? >> the speech is remarkable not only because of the president and the language and the intense. you can see the president had true feeling and sentiment and investment in the ideas, but that the muslim world is finally mature enough after decades of suffering from jihadist ideology and the united states has also been punished terribly by suffering through jihadist ideology, almost the timing in history is allowing this to happen. furthermore, in islam, there is nothing that gives a muslim host greater honor than hosting a guest as you yourself know from your origins. judge jeanine: yes. >> so it was remarkable.
6:05 pm
judge jeanine: well, and you know, it was remarkable listening to the president describe saudi arabia, and the fact that he had heard so much about it but it was their graciousness, it was the beauty of the country, and clearly there was a connection, but is this the beginning of the reformation? >> for me, i'm not in a position to speak about that, but i think does it call muslims to reform their behavior to exterminate a fanatical ideology? for us to go inside mosques where some of these ideologies are propagating? something that the koran itself allows, if that is happening? yes. the ground has been laid. this did not come from the united states. president sisi made the remarks, they said president trump is not the same as candidate trump. these are sophisticated world operates. they are not hurt by
6:06 pm
anti-muslim xenophobia that might be portrayed in the united states. judge jeanine: that's an important point. the americans, especially the left-wing media saying the president is anti-muslim, the ban is against muslims. the muslims have no problem with him. he was clear on the vast majority of victims of islamic terrorism are fellow muslims. >> yes, you are absolutely right. there was almost a heart-breaking tenderness, a powerful moment. 80 years old, standing in 107 fahrenheit waiting for the president to defend. this is the highest mark of honor. not just an honor for the figure of president trump. honor for the u.s. presidency and honor for the united states, when the united states has been naval gazing since the election of the president and lost sight of itself, we can look to the most conflicted region in the world and regain a sense who we are and responsibility to the globe. judge jeanine: and when the president made it clear we are not here to teach you how to live or how you should act or,
6:07 pm
you know, but instead coming with his wife and his daughter, you know, almost a statement that women come and walk with me, as equals. what's that message? >> impressive. not just that. of course, bringing the first lady, but bringing his daughter-in-law who's converted to orthodox judaism. judge jeanine: his daughter. >> and son-in-law, orthodox jewish gentleman is tremendous. it's a mark of as we are here sitting symbolizing two different faiths rooted in the middle east, you and i, so too, he brought that with him. it's phenomenal. this is how we're going to collaborate. and not a single moment was lost on any of those leaders. him flanked by the king of saudi arabia, the king of jordan, president el-sisi. all of them, hardly am i in that group, all of them are unified in the approach. judge jeanine: well, it is certainly a different day. >> it is a speech that every american needs to see.
6:08 pm
i was just in egypt, can i tell you, my egyptian driver can quote the speeches of anwar alsadat, american children can study and learn and i myself are going to study. this is historic. judge jeanine: dr. ahmed, my friend, thank you for being here. >> thank you. judge jeanine: joining me from d.c. with more reaction to the president's speech, congressman darrell issa, member of house overnight and judiciary, and foreign affairs. congressman, you heard the doctor, and i'm going to ask you the same question with a political angle. what was the difference between president obama's 2009, i apologize for being an american speech in cairo, and this speech and the difference in the acceptance in the muslim world? >> eight years later, after a lecture series, one might say in cairo, what we had was a welcoming speech, a speech that said please join me. we are in this together, and we
6:09 pm
can solve it, the united states can't solve it, there was a great deal of humility in the speech, basically saying that we'll be with you, but ultimately, we cannot do it without you. and again, it was a speech of welcoming and opening rather than a lecture. judge jeanine: and what do you think of the fact that, you know, president trump has only been in office four, five months, and yet, this, the establishment of the financial targeting center, the reception of the coordination here. i mean, this doesn't happen overnight. how did the president do this? >> well, a couple of things. some of these were programs that were pent up, waiting to happen, certainly the saudis have wanted to re-engage with the united states on u.s. weapons and u.s. security assistance, that they pay for, but it wasn't very welcome with
6:10 pm
the last administration. remember, judge, at the beginning of last administration, you had hope by the arabs, by the muslim world, and by israel. by the end of the obama era, all of them had given up on the united states under president obama. he simply alienated everybody, including bibi netanyahu. he spent money trying to defeat american tax dollars. judge jeanine: exactly. >> this reopening is about undoing eight years but beyond that because it's got to do things that didn't happen under george w. bush. it's got to bring the arab world together in a different coalition. it's not just a coalition of military might. it's a coalition of ideological, if you will, purity. the idea that religions are supposed to help people live together, not help them kill each other. judge jeanine: and you know what's interesting is that even the president made reference to the fact that, you know, for generations the christians and
6:11 pm
the jews and the muslims lived together, and it's only this recent, you know, destruction that's occurred in the interpretation of islam. but you know, congressman, it's very interesting as i sit here, you are lebanese descent. i am lebanese descent. the doctor is -- >> indian subcontinent of pakistan. judge jeanine: so many americans can relate to the middle east. and yet so separate from our lives for so long. do you think that instead of talking about coordination, we're going to have real partners and allies again in the middle east? >> absolutely. we're already seeing it. i was a few weeks ago, i was at the refugee camps in lebanon and jordan where the united states is re-engaging to try to bring some real solutions there. you know, the last administration wanted to brag about how many refugees we brought to the united states. when you see over 2 1/2 million
6:12 pm
refugees in jordan and lebanon, you realize they can't come here, we have to make it possible for them to live there. that's one of the agendas you're seeing. and speaking of the country that our ancestors came from, you know in downtown beirut, in solidare, without glasses, you can see a jewish temple, a shia mosque, a sunni mosque, an orthodox church and a roman catholic church, you can see them all, and you can walk to them in the square, and they're all ancient because our people have lived together, and it's that welcoming they think president trump showed so well in saudi arabia that we can do it again. judge jeanine: and you know what? i think that the middle east is now a believer. the president was very clear, iran is the enemy, and iran, of course, the historic enemy of saudi arabia. have we taken sides, congressman? >> you know, in 1979, sides
6:13 pm
were taken, we're only now owning up to it. the reality is that the extremist direction of wahhabiism and the growth of al qaeda and isis had much to do with the shia and sunni responding. the reality is unchecked since 1979 is part of the reason we're here, and that's what we've got to realize is, that islam will heal itself when islamic leaders part of the process. that's what the president went halfway around the world for. that's what he delivered in a very powerful speech welcoming the muslim nations and i think the rest of the world to join us in a different fight, a fight for the ideas, when he says drive them out. he's not saying drive the people out. he's saying drive these ideas out that have tainted our countries. judge jeanine: congressman darrell issa, thanks for being with us this evening. >> thank you, judge. judge jeanine: joining me with a military perspective on how the speech will affect the
6:14 pm
fight against isis. retired army lieutenant colonel mitch utterback who served three tours in afghanistan and one in iraq. colonel, we heard about the $110 billion arms deal with the saudis and another $400 billion that will be invested in the two countries. more jobs at each end. what are the military implications of this deal? >> good evening, judge. one of the most important military implications for everybody watching tonight is fewer americans in that part of the world because the saudis purchased more of our equipment, more ships, more tanks, more planes mean more u.s. troops able to be home with families. but it also means they have demonstrated that they're willing to purchase the equipment over many years and want the training. they want the maintenance, they want the help with operating it and they want the help with taking the fight to the enemy want and the help deterring
6:15 pm
iranian influence in that part of the world. judge jeanine: you know what's interesting? president obama was always talk about the coordinated efforts and the coalition. i have never seen anything like what i saw today in saudi arabia, and dr. ahmed is shaking her head right next to me. why is this so different, colonel? >> well, the doctor will agree, i'm sure. the president demonstrated deep cultural competency. a deep understanding of how to behave, how to present himself, how to show humility. how to dignify his hosts. also how to project strength tame. it was a very nuanced visit for those of us that have lived and worked and been shoulder to shoulder in the middle east. we saw that as, hey, this guy looks like he's been doing this for a long time. great advice or just an incredibly deft, culturally competent leader that we have now. judge jeanine: doctor, you
6:16 pm
wanted to add something to that? >> so well said, congressman. the moment for political will has been building because the stakes have become so high. we're seeing the collapse of syria, the rise of iranian influence in yemen, the destabilization of the region through jihadist islamism. the consequences of the downstream impact in europe. the muslim will is tremendous. the timing is important. judge jeanine: back to you, colonel, you know this terrorist financing targeting center, which will have the staff of individuals, experts from the united states and from the arab world, what do you expect that to accomplish? >> couple things, judge. i expect the u.s. treasury department to bring years and years of counterthreat to financing, the intelligence and ability to track the money, but once we know where the money is, and the gcc countries with the language ability, the culture ability, the knowledge
6:17 pm
of how the money moves around. our technical and intelligence capability married with the gccs cultural capabilities and language capabilities is unprecedented, and it really is going to dry up in large parts the biggest donors, the biggest guys who wish they were jihadists but too scared to go so they give the money away. this is the great stuff. >> when you say gcc, colonel, you're talking about syria -- not syria, talking about egypt, jordan, which countries? >> those are the gulf cooperation council, judge, saudi arabia, qatar, kuwait, oman, the united arab emirates and bahrain. countries that have very, very strong military partnerships with the u.s., now a counterthreat financing partnership. momentum is building, this is a great sign. judge jeanine: colonel utterback, thank you very much. and dr. ahmed, thank you so much. former u.n. ambassador john

bolton is on deck tonight, but next -- >> today we begin a new chapter that will bring lasting benefits to all of our citizens. judge jeanine: is the u.s. finally back to leading on the world stage? dr. zuhdi jasser is here with his reaction to president trump's historic speech. and later, judy miller offers a look at what to expect from president trump's trip to israel.

6:23 pm
faiths, different sects or different civilizations but good and evil. joining me now with reaction former u.s. navy lieutenant commander and president of the american islamic center for democracy. great to have you back on "justice." >> good to be back with you, judge. judge jeanine: thank you. speech the president gave today seems to have reset or rebooted relations in the middle east can. it happen so quickly? >> certainly, this is why he got such a warm welcome. the sunni world which is 90% of the muslim world in the arab area, has seen eight years of abandonment. they saw everything dumped at thealtar of the fake iran deal with hundreds of billions of dollars going to tehran. now they see a president who will shore up the coalition as necessary to defeat isis. they see a president who will hold them accountable to not only defeating isis but radical
6:24 pm
islam. this is why the new center on counterterrorism is important. left unguided, left unled, the sunni regimes will ultimately feed the ideology like qatar, turkey and saudi arabia did like radicalizing the syrian government and others. this new relationship will hold them accountable and they welcome that, they need leadership and guidance and seeing a rebooting of the balance that was stability in the 20th century that was lost in the last eight years of obama's surrender. judge jeanine: what happened as the president indicated for generations, christians, jews and muslims lived together in this holy land. what happened that broke that? what was the beginning of the destruction? >> i think ultimately the world is starting to witness where islam is in history right now. we are going through enlightenment, a reformation, and a understanding of a respect for secularism and the need to separate mosque and
6:25 pm
state just as created the french and the american revolutions, and this is why what's very different than today's world versus the cairo speech of 09 of obama or president bush's era, post-arab awakening, these regimes are roiling with groundswell of arab awakening, i hope the next speech from president trump will use freedom, democracy and liberty. yes, he might develop a coalition to destroy and decimate isis, but in the long term, radical islamist groups will keep coming back unless we feed the diversity of thought. time which islam is in history to bring back that time which there was stability, cooperation between the faiths, there was a lack of kinetic, radical islamist ideology that wants to decimate everything else. and the time to reboot that is now. judge jeanine: as a military man, you were in the navy. when the president said he's
6:26 pm
going to oblitrate isis and seems to be doing well on that front, but at the same time, saying the muslim world has got to work with us. we can't do it for you. i mean, you know, obama said the same thing, but why is the reception so different? why is president trump, who's just so newly in office, able to deliver with such credibility his argument? >> because president obama did it from a position of beginning and ending by blaming america, by blaming the west, in an almost self-flagellating apologetic. telling them to drive them out. we will isolate iran and genocidal regime, that is language they have not heard for a long time which is true leadership from the front rather than the back if any at all. the arab tribal community respects leadership, even if they tell them what to do or
6:27 pm
not to do, and i think that will go a long way to stabilizing the region. judge jeanine: well, they respect strength and they respect leadership and they respect honesty. and what's interesting is that the president went in saying i'm not going to tell you how to live or impose my sense of what you need to do. anyway, dr. zuhdi jasser, so good to you have on "justice". thank you so much. >> any time, judge. judge jeanine: coming up, president trump with a strong message to iran in his historic speech. former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. john bolton is here to weigh in next.

6:33 pm
terror. is a government that speaks openly of mass murder, vowing the destruction of israel, death to america, and ruin for many leaders and nations in this very room. judge jeanine: president trump ripping into iran's government in historic speech making it clear they are america's enemy. former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. fox news contributor john bolton joins me now with reaction to the president's strong words. good evening, ambassador. the president made it very clear where the lines of demarcation were, iran and syria are our enemy. let's talk about iran. >> right, i thought this was a very strong speech by the president. i think it was well received by his audience in the arab world which is seen in the last eight years, they think america has taken leave of senses for not appreciating the threat that
6:34 pm
iran poses, not just to them but to us, and it's because both the nuclear program and iran's longstanding support for terrorism. so this is a signal that the obama administration really is gone and that the united states appreciates that the ayatollah's regime in iran is a threat in the region and globally and we're going to deal with it, as he said, during the campaign. judge jeanine: when the president talked about iran, he talked about the fact that very clear that we have got to starve terrorists of their territory, their funding and the faults are of the ideology and we can defeat them. iran has always been, ambassador, the enemy of saudi arabia. so in addition to identifying iran as the enemy, we are also making it clear that we are aligned with saudi arabia and, i think, the sunnis as opposed to the other sect.
6:35 pm
>> well, i don't think that necessarily is the case. i think we're aligned with regimes that oppose what the current regime in iran is trying to do. back in the 50s and 60s, though he was unpopular for other reasons, the shah of iran kept iran on the west of the cold war. it's not the people of iran that's the problem, it's the ayatollahs in charge. they do pose a threat to the oil-producing monarchies on the arabian peninsula to israel and to the united states. so to eliminate that threat, to deal with the nuclear, the ongoing nuclear program and iran's funding of terrorism, we're going to use the friends that we have, and i think they're delighted to see that the president understands the nature of iran's threat which is something barack obama didn't get for eight years. judge jeanine: clearly. the president made it very clear it's not the iranian people, i mean, it is those who
6:36 pm
are chanting death to america and destruction to israel. in light of this new, this reset in the middle east by the united states with saudi arabia, jordan, egypt and the other -- most of the other sunni countries, it appears that the president also was talking about the possibility of peace between israel and palestine. it's clear that that is on his agenda. >> well, i think the threat of iran is certainly focused the attention of saudi arabia and some of the other key monarchies, and that's why prime minister netanyahu of israel does think there's a chance to harness that new strategic clarity, to get peace with the palestinians. the president is an optimistic man, willing to take a shot at it. good luck to him. i don't think it's going to happen. i don't think on the palestinian side, the palestinian authority is capable of making commitments and honoring them, and there will have no legitimate
6:37 pm
authority for the palestinian people. it's a great tragedy, but that's where we are at the moment. we'll see. the president is determined to play it out and i don't see any downside. it may come to nothing as so many other evers here have. but if the saudis and others are willing to go along with the effort by israel and the united states, let's see what happens. judge jeanine: sounds like a new realignment with saudis and the israelis possibly being on the same side. ambassador john bolton, thanks for being with us. >> thank you. judge jeanine: and coming up, my all-star panel on deck ready to battle it out. back in a moment.
6:38 pm
6:39 pm
6:40 pm
6:41 pm
. judge jeanine: welcome back to "justice". time for the panel on this extremely busy night of news.
6:42 pm
let's get right to it. joining me now mercedes schlapp republican strategist and richard fowler, senior leader of the fellows council. both fox news contributors. richard, your reaction to the president's speech in saudi arabia. >> i think we're seeing candidate trump and president trump, and he seemed to not escape the teleprompter. it's a good night for the president. judge jeanine: mercedes, would you like to respond to that. [laughter] >> look, i think this is showing a moment of strength by this president in basically going to the muslim leaders and saying we need to unite in order to eradicate radical islam. he also talked about the importance of the disastrous mess we have seen because of radical extremism in the region, and also he's sending a very direct message to iran, clearly by working with saudi arabia, by working on this multibillion dollar arms deal.
6:43 pm
basically saying, look, iran, we're not with you, we are with saudi arabia, and taking sides, and i think it's been a very welcoming reception from saudi arabia, basically saying this is a new era for relations with these important muslim countries. judge jeanine: okay, richard, richard, why do you think that he was so -- the president was so well received in the middle east? >> well, i think the reason he was so well received in saudi arabia, only talking to one half of the muslim sect. he wasn't talking to the other half. judge jeanine: 50 muslim leaders. >> you have the sunnis and the she aone group was not there in the room, at all, period. the other reason the saudis are so happy is more to do with the fact yesterday he signed almost $100 billion arms deal to saudi arabia turning a sharp ideal that we can use diplomacy to
6:44 pm
solve problems to using weapons to solve the problems. judge jeanine: by engaging in the arms deal, we give the saudis and the gulf states the ability to protect themselves as opposed to sending american military over there. and i thought that was a great argument. plus it makes jobs in the middle east and the united states. >> i hear that, but i think we'll be neglecting the fact, a good majority of the 9/11 attackers came from saudi arabia and saudi arabia has been sponsors of terrorism. the president forgot that last night. >> i think president obama remembered that. go ahead. what about iran being a state of -- terrorist state. >> they're not getting an arms deal, mercedes. >> what i'm saying is here's one of the things they did work on. it was saudi arabia, the fact of prosecuting individuals who are going to be financing terrorists. that was part of the agreement they made during this visit. also we saw the establishment of this global counterterrorism
6:45 pm
and extremism center in saudi arabia. these are positive steps to eradicate radical islam in this region. now with that being said, this is not what we saw under president obama where president obama decided to stand with iran and basically what have we seen with iran? iran's involvement in syria? seen a stronger russian-iranian alliance and seen the fact that iran basically is continuing to finance terrorism. >> what we did see in iran is they don't have the ability to acquire or attain or develop a nuclear weapon, that is a step in the right direction. >> they lost the -- >> we can relitigate the iran deal as long as we want, right? here's the truth. now donald trump has the keys to this car and even though there was an election in iran yesterday and iran seems to be moving more to a globalized position than previously, he still slapped them in the face. that is not diplomacy. judge jeanine: richard, doesn't
6:46 pm
it bother you when you hear the iranians yelling death to america, eradicate israel, the big devil, the little devil? come on! you think they're our friends. >> bothers me as much as russia engaging in our election. judge jeanine: oh, boy. i'm will for someone to give me evidence of that. you know what? i don't want to go there. richard, richard. >> they engaged in our elections. judge jeanine: richard, richard, the bottom line is now we've got a president allowing the middle east to get the weapons they need so we don't have to go over there and fight all the time. >> can i make one historical point on this point? judge jeanine: sure. >> every time we've sold the middle eastern countries weapons they used it against us. >> that's not true. judge jeanine: you are wrong. >> we gave weapons to the afghanis and the iraqis, those weapons used against our men and women. point-blank, period.

judge jeanine: mercedes, finish. >> one point we have to make clear. it is israel, one of the foreign ministers mentioning that they were concerned, they're nervous about the close relationship between the united states and saudi arabia. we have to be very clear that the one ally who we do need to stand strong with, someone who president obama did not is with israel, and i think that's going to be an important message that president trump is going to have to deliver when he meets with prime minister netanyahu during his visit to israel. i think -- judge jeanine: tomorrow. >> there is -- they are concerned, israel is concerned about the close ties with saudi arabia, but with that being said, you need to be able to have the communication with saudi arabia and the moderate muslim countries in order to ensure there is stability in the region. judge jeanine: mercedes schlapp, richard fowler, thanks for being with us. >> thank you. judge jeanine: president trump pushing forward with his first foreign trip. next stop, israel. pulitzer prize-winning journalist judith miller is

abrahamic faiths, if these three faiths can join together in cooperation, then peace in this world is possible, including peace between israelis and palestinians. judge jeanine: president trump's next stop, israel. of course, stay tuned to fox news for full coverage of his arrival in just a few hours. what can we expect to see from the president's time there? let's ask pulitzer prize-winning reporter and fox news contributor judith miller. good evening, judith. almost as if the president has an impossible task to realign the middle eastern countries to possibly, you know, make peace between israel and palestine, convince everybody is on their side. how do they do it? >> right. the word kvetsch is not a
6:53 pm
yiddish word, the reception will be warm because the united states is israel's closest ally, but also going to be a lot of complaining. judge jeanine: because of saudi arabia being the first stop? >> that and so many other things, judge, first of all there's the mossada issue, the speech e was supposed to give, mossada the archaeological site where jewish zealots jumped to their death rather than be conquered by the romans. the israelis said that is not a great place to make a speech about peace or prospects but we're not going to fly you up to the site, you'll take a cable car, so he's going to go to the western wall, and the western wall flap, and that is the wall in israel or is it in palestine and the state department of course got very nervous about calling that. there's the issue of whether or not the president gave sensitive israeli intelligence to the russians when they met

here in washington. that really disturbed some of the intelligence community. judge jeanine: my understanding is they said it had already been public, anyway. >> well, that's what mcmaster said, israelis disagree. we could go on and on. the thing that bothers and worries bibi netanyahu the most is whether or not donald trump wants to make the ultimate deal between israelis and palestinians, that's very dangerous for mr. netanyahu who wants to keep his coalition together. ultimate deal -- judge jeanine: look, our president can't impose a deal on them, netanyahu has to be a part of it. netanyahu has nothing to worry about. it seems to me that netanyahu should be happy that the president has said iran is the enemy, assad and syria are the enemy. we're going to give the saudis, the enemies of the iranians,

the enemy of my enemy is my friend. business, fundamental stuff. >> they're very happy about that. they're not an open kind of coalition. there were two israeli journalists left in washington because they weren't permitted to go to saudi arabia because the -- riyadh wouldn't give them visas. the cooperation that exists is not open. judge jeanine: judy, with all due respect, this sounds like petty stuff. we're dealing with bigger issues. >> by the way. i totally agree with you. unlike saudi arabia, israel is a democracy with a vibrant free press, and donald trump is going to read and hear about all of this because people talk and they air their grievances and this is not the way things are in saudi arabia. judge jeanine: the president made it so clear, i'm not going to tell anybody how to live, and i think that was the mistake of president george bush. we're going to give you democracy, happy with the purple fingers. they don't want democracy. let people live their lives.
6:56 pm
>> i think that's true, but i hope that mr. trump understands that this is not about real estate. this is not a deal that can easily be made -- judge jeanine: and he didn't sound like it was about real estate today. my friend judy miller, thank you so much for being with us, and we'll be right back, everyone. tech: when your windshield needs to be fixed... trust safelite autoglass. for these parents, driving around was the only way to get their baby to sleep. so when their windshield got cracked... customer: we can't drive this car. tech: ...they wanted it fixed right. so they scheduled with safelite.
