11:01 pm
inflation. we will ask a member of the council of economic advisors about rising recession fears. then, former president trump claims he has already made a decision on 2024, he is just not telling anyone yet. we asked rick scott how the timing of that decision will impact the republican party and midterms only on fox news sunday plus our panel breaks down ran neal fox news poll right now on fox news sunday. hello again from fox news in washington. president biden is back at the white house. sky high gas prices plaguing him here at home. new fox news polls show americans disapprove of the job he is doing in his handling of the economy.
11:02 pm
hotter than expected june inflation report leaves wall street racing for another big hike to slow it all down. we will ask jared bernstein what the plan is to address the surge in prices. first let's go to the white house with the controversy surrounding the president's trip. >> the president is back home from a very busy four day trip to the mideast overshadowed by one moment. it was the fist bump seen around the world. the president with saudi crowned prince, the man u.s. holds responsible for the murder of a journalist. >> basically said that he was not personally responsible for it. i indicated i thought he was. >> the greeting was called shameful and worse than a handshake. the fiancé tweeting the blood of
11:03 pm
the next victim is on biden's hands. >> i'm sorry she feels that way. i did not come here to meet the crowd prince. i came here to meet with nine nations. >> the president to her which focused on security across the region began with meeting with israeli and, palestinian leaders unannounced aid to the palestinians and brokered a deal with saudi arabia to open an airspace to fly into and out of israel. the president said he also discussed energy with a major oil producer. >> i'm doing all i can to increase supply. i expect to see further steps in the coming weeks. >> that would be a welcome relief for americans that are now paying an average of $4.57 a gallon for unleaded. down slightly from the record a month ago. inflation is soaring and so it's a price for just about everything. groceries, household items and
11:04 pm
even airfare is up significantly from a year ago. the white house argues a consumer price index for june is "out of date" because it does not reflect the recent drop in energy prices. even democrats have had enough. >> i don't think that they like it. >> inflation is what west virginia senator blamed for single-handedly taking any hopes for climate change and energy funding and the parties latest economic package. the president bowing to step in with these negative action as progressives lash out. >> it is infuriating. it is frustrating, but it is kind of predictable. >> we will have to elect a couple more democrats. >> the president comes home to some pretty new brutal numbers. 25% of americans approve on his job on inflation. 40% approve on his job overall.
11:05 pm
shannon: reporting live from the white house, thank you so much. joining us in washington is jared bernstein. hank you for being with us on fox news sunday. >> my pleasure, shannon. almost a year to the day that president biden said no serious economists out that we would enter a period of unchecked inflation. 9.1% as of this week. how did the white house get this so wrong? >> that was the dominant or cast at the time. we were fighting forecasts across the board. i think there were a number of issues. there were some unforeseen things that occurred. for example, the war in ukraine. ukraine and russia are bread baskets and energy baskets for the world. that has put considerable upward pressure. inflation, when is -- which is unacceptably high went up 1.3%
11:06 pm
in june. unacceptably high increase. half of that increases energy prices alone. since then, the price of gas has come down $0.50 a gallon. 20,000 gas stations where gas is below dollars a gallon. still too hi, but that is moving in the right direction giving american some much needed breathing room. it is a move in the right direction. >> let's talk about how american families are feeling. 70% of people out there that we pulled this week said their family has had to cut back to afford necessities. we know these numbers that we just got reflect backwards. looking forward, we are also asking them if they've had a financial hardship over the last six months and where they think this is going. they also have a negative impression of where they think we will be a year from now. >> that is a great question. the keyword and there there is affordability. economists like to talk about
11:07 pm
inflation. for real people, what they are paying at the pump, what they are paying in their everyday lives and their household budgets. this was a kitchen table issue for president biden as he grew up. right now, on the docket, something that democrats are actually aligned on is a plan to lower prescription drug costs. everyone who hears me say that probably gave some kind of an applause. while president taft tried to make it happen for decades, it still has not occurred. we paid two-three times for prescription drugs what european pay for precisely the same drugs. it is time to stand up to big pharma, come together, do something on the affordability there. we also are plans for lowering health insurance premiums. an increase of $1800 on average if we do not extend the
11:08 pm
expansion for coverage under the aca. these are issues on the docket that should be concluded before august and frankly should be concluded on a bipartisan measure because if you care about inflation and every policymaker should, certainly president biden does, it's time to stop pointing fingers and take action. >> they are talking about doing something big on climate change. closing loopholes along with these other things that are agreed upon. he hasn't been -- for a lot of his domestic issues. he's gotten a lot of praise for blocking spending. bigger packages from economists across the spectrum hussein joe mansion did a good job putting the brakes on some of that spending. >> let's talk about swinging for the fences, a good baseball metaphor.
11:09 pm
for unclean energy. that is precisely what this resident intends to do. he recognizes the urgency of taking action against climate change and building up our clean energy industries which are so good and important for american jobs. he will take the executive order and rule change. i should really say he has already taken. this president has tackled aggressively climate change measures already. for example, he has tapped the defense production act to significantly ramp up the production of clean energy. he has set the most rigorous admission standards yet to be set in this country and he has helped to jumpstart the offshore wind industry. those are all measures he took through executive action and
11:10 pm
rule changes and he will continue to do that. on spending, i've been looking at these numbers this morning, that is prep for our conversation, the budget visit is down 1.000000000000. nine months of the fiscal year. nine months of this fiscal year, a $1.7 trillion reduction in the budget deficit. the largest on record. i think when it comes to spending, the record is strong. >> to be fair, everyone would agree we are coming off of enormous pandemic spending. >> fairpoint. >> when you look ahead, if you look at the years 2023 through 32, 1.6 will be the deficit number added every year and we will have the worst ratio in a matter of a few years. >> you raise a totally legitimate point. coming off a year of high
11:11 pm
spending, you will see some declines. here is the thing. if you look at the percentage contributions to that 1.7 trillion in deficit reduction, 26% of that decline is due to increased receipts, increased revenues. 18% is a function of lower spending. spending fell 18%, revenues went up 26%. even faster. how do we get faster revenue increases in an economy that is taking hits, that we been talking about. it must be a much stronger economy than people are saying. in fact, that is the case. no denial at all about the unacceptability of these prices. when it comes to ports getting goods from ship to shelf. we are doing everything we can to ease these prices.
11:12 pm
under lying that is an economy with the strongest labor market and generations spinning off numbers up 26%. >> let's talk gdp. it was negative in q1. it will be negative in q2. technically, that meets a recession. does the white house acknowledge we are technically in a recession. >> the technical definition is not two quarters of negative gdp but it has to do much more with a number of economic variables. actually doing better right now for payroll growth. they look at payroll growth. consumer spending. they are actually very strong on the payroll side and strong on the spending side as well. in fact, one of the things we are seeing is people are traveling a lot, they are taking some of that pent up demand that they did not get to tap during the downturn, during the
11:13 pm
pandemic. that is contributing to strong consumer spending, job growth and unemployment rate of 3.6% for the past four months. it is very hard to conclude we are in a recession when you look at the payroll and job gains that we have seen. it is tricky to look around the corner care, and i will not predict down the road. right now you have inflation headwinds big time in this economy. you also have some very strong tail went that is boosting consumers. some of that has the american rescue plans fingerprints all over that. the families have quite solid balance sheets. >> let's talk about some of the headlines. the first headline, consumer credit card debt headed to an all-time high. next headline car repossessions are surging. americans are eating into their pandemic savings to handle inflation. we know consumer sentiment has been reflecting consumer lows in
11:14 pm
months. they know what their own spreadsheet looks like. stop spending. >> 70% consumer spending economy. that question kind of answers itself. you talked about debt levels. when the interest rates are going up in the federal reserve is aggressively pivoting to do their part on inflation, something the president has endorsed, that will increase because of servicing your debt. debt service, a share of income is near historic lows. why is that? you said it yourself. people have very high levels of savings on aggregate. lots of folks struggling with this high level inflation. as macroeconomists, when you look at the savings and the economy, it is up there in the trillions. you said it exactly, folks are tapping those savings to continue to keep consumer spending strong.
11:15 pm
i am here to tell you that would not be the case were it not for the american rescue plans getting shots in the arms and checks in the pockets. >> there are limits to the savings, though. inflation is far outpacing a nearly every sector for people. the greatest tragedy is for american workers. suffering the largest reduction since the 1970s. they have fallen intent of the last 13 months. they have fallen more since president took office. >> you made when i think it's a really important point here. elevated savings from the rescue plan and other measures are very much helping to support consumer spending. they are real buffer and this time of elevated inflation. you say that cannot go on forever and you are exactly right. you need a strong labor market because that is where most people get their incomes from. we have the strongest labor
11:16 pm
market on record in history. 9 million jobs since this president got here. a lot of talk about these economic headwinds, if you look at these tailwinds, there hundred 75,000 jobs per month in the past three months. wage growth is actually pretty strong in novel terms. inflation is delhi. that is what the president's agenda is all about. helping families afford prescription drugs, lower premiums, something that congress needs to act on before the august recess. i am talking bipartisan. i've heard republicans say they want to lower prescription drugs president trump talked about it. we pay to-three times what people in other countries pay for the very same drugs. that is an unconscionable tax. not only does that tell people's bottom line in terms of affordability, it saves medicare
11:17 pm
$100 billion over 10 years. we should do that tomorrow, to answer your question on affordability. >> just down the block on capitol hill. >> i'm talking loud enough so they can hear me. i get fired up about this. >> thank you very much. >> great talking with you. >> a boom for some, a bust for others this election cycle. we will bring in senator rick scott. helping or hurting republicans efforts to win back the senate. efforts to win back the senate. ♪♪

11:21 pm
republican voters are eager to see their party take back control of congress and the full midterms. there are concerns that some of the senate candidates running in and even those winning republican primaries could do more harm than good. former president donald trump teases a third white house bid announcing before midterms are even over. joining us now senator rick scott. senator, welcome back to fox news sunday. >> great to be with you. we've got great candidates. the biden agenda is horrible. this inflation. what jared bernstein talked about, key is not talking about real people. people are getting their cars repossessed. having to go to food banks. this is hurting so many people in my state. i think this will be a bloodbath for the democrats this year.
11:22 pm
>> assuming you have a good year, republicans take back the senate in the house, what will you do to make things better? the gop keep slamming biden over inflation, but it has no solutions to offer. we all get how politics works. the party out of party blames for what is going on. what is the plan to reduce it? americans deserve an answer. senator, what is your answer to that question? >> here is what we have to deal. we have to balance the budget. this is caused by reckless spending. every proposal that democrats have is spend your money. sped more money. reduce taxes, reduce fees, reduce the size of the government. beg for fuel. bake for texas and asked them to get more fuel.
11:23 pm
the biden administration are do-nothing people and all they do is blame. balance a budget, start with that. that is the simplest thing we have to deal. reduce the cost of government. it is way too high. stop spending money. >> there is a spending fever here in washington. you mentioned lowering taxes. i want to bring up what the president said in cleveland just a few days ago talking about the issue of taxes. here is what president biden said. >> rick scott from florida who heads up the republican campaign committee, he put out the plan, what does the plan do? it makes the taxes seem less fair by giving a need to tax under $100,000 significantly more on average a lot more money. it actually raises taxes on those working families because he thinks you we don't pay enough in taxes already.
11:24 pm
>> your reaction. >> i have always cut taxes. never voted to raise taxes. the democrats and biden even now want to raise taxes. we have to get americans back to work. if you are able to body, get to work. when you go to work, guess what, you pay taxes. you pay income taxes and you pay sales taxes and you buy things. what the president wants to do is every proposal he has is to raise everybody's taxes. my proposal, get people back to work. we added 1.7 million jobs. the democrats, they want to spend your money. how do we reduce premiums for somebody? it is not to create a better delivery system in healthcare, it is to raise your taxes. $33 trillion in debt.
11:25 pm
that is why we have the inflation we have. that is why gas prices are up. why is gas prices up? they have an agenda to get rid of fossil fuel. that is horrible for this country. we should be energy independent. >> it would require more gop senators in the senate. let's talk about some of the headlight does you are working to lead that effort. rick scott leads the republican bid. those candidates are struggling. candidate challenges. worried about senate chances. six awful gop candidates i could save the senate. top republicans fought confidence about winning the senate in the midterm. fearing they will blow it after nominating candidates and flawed states. what are your expectations. is there overconfidence among republicans? >> there is an election.
11:26 pm
we have to work hard. we can potentially pick up six seats. great candidates all across the country. the biden agenda is horrible. we have to raise our money. text when 25504. we have great candidates. we will have a great year. it's nice for the democrats to talk about our candidates. is this a warning? they have all lied about their position. they are all moderates and then they vote with chuck schumer 100% of the time. they have to go home, there to explain why they vote with chuck schumer and why they vote to cause gas prices to go up. why they vote for more spending. that's what they do. we will have a great year. >> you mentioned fundraising. senate gop money flop. that was their headline. key races from arizona to new hampshire. gop voters don't realize the
11:27 pm
senate majority is in breach or wrongly think it is a sure thing and it's clear they don't like a lot of the trump candidates. that comes in contrast with democrats having some major halls. where are you on fundraising? >> historically, democrats have been able to raise more money than us. we are working on raising more. i'm talking to our candidates every week. they are out there raising money. look at rod johnson. look at herschel walker. look at marco rubio. democrats are doing a good job this year raising money. that's why tell people, you have to help us. people are fed up. fed up with the biden agenda. they are sick and tired of $5 gas. food prices up. all of this stuff. they are sick of it. we just have to raise our money. >> who cares more about people like you.
11:28 pm
we asked voters. they give the edge to democrats ignored them care about voters in the republican party. how do you work to change our perception. people are really hurting and that matters going into the midterm. >> i know what i have done in my races. you show up and you talk to as many people as you can. you listen to their problems. i did it all day yesterday. listen to people's issues. that is how we have to do it. i shook hands with half a million people when i was governor. yesterday are probably shook hands with two or 300 people. talked about their issues. we had a hispanic event yesterday. they will vote our way because they are fed up with the government. set up with the public school system. we will have a great win this november. >> let's have a talk about your most prominent constituent. president trump saying he has made a decision about 2024. here as a headline about the
11:29 pm
announcement. potentially upending midterms. some republicans fear an announcement will undercut them at a time when they have a strong chance of retaking the house and senate. a republican strategist says of all the selfish things he does every minute of every day it would probably be the most. everything we are doing that is not talking about the economy. it is going to be a disaster. do you have a feeling about his decision, his timing and how it impacts the midterms? >> this year will be a referendum on biden. it is pretty simple. the presidents strategies are horrible. this will not be about 24, it will be about 22. we have to focus to win this november. we have every reason to believe we can win. this will be about gas prices and food prices in the democrats wanting to defund the police and
11:30 pm
critical race theory. inflation, my kids getting a good inflation, living in a safe community. democrats are on the wrong side of that issue. they voted on the wrong side of that for years. >> does president change the topic if you get there before the midterm? >> i think it will all be about what is happening in your family right now. people are focused on what happens to them. they care about their jobs and the inflation. take florida as an example. the cost of living in florida is up $770 a month. a month. inflation in florida is up almost 14% since joe biden got elected. that is the issue people will focus on. they know the democrats are costing us with reckless spending. they want to spend more. spend more money. people know you cannot keep doing that. families cannot do that. why would anyone believe your
11:31 pm
government can do it. >> people are hurting. they blame the biden administration at this point. we know you are working around the clock. we follow all the races. a queue of senator rick scott. >> thank you. >> how the president's handling the economy and inflation.
11:32 pm
11:33 pm
11:34 pm
>> we need to ensure adequate supplies to meet global needs. producers have already increased production and look forward to seeing what is coming in the coming months. >> the kingdom will play its role in this era as it announces the maximum sustainable production capacity to more than 13 million barrels. beyond that the kingdom will not have any further production capacity. >> president biden and audie
11:35 pm
crowned prince striking different tones during the global oil supply. joining me now was josh, former democratic national committee director and kevin roberts president of the heritage foundation and former state department spokesperson. welcome to all of you. it's been a busy weekend weekend the white house, did they have any deliverables that they can talk about from this trip? we see them pushing back on some of the things the white house has touted as accomplishments. >> they went 17, 18 months without going to the region. i think they probably should have set expectations lower. you have been pursuing a policy with israel. archenemy, this arch rival. they have not been able to negotiate a deal. it will run into headwinds from
11:36 pm
men then dez. before you even get to the republicans. you can go to the region hand-in-hand having treated the very transactional relationship asking for things that they are probably not willing to give. they did sign the jerusalem declaration and israel where they said iran would never get us nuclear weapon. i thought that that was positive that is something. thank you to abraham mccord, part of the trump administration for that happening. squandering 18 months in the middle east. low expectations because they just have not place the emphasis that they needed. placing it in other instances with the republican. >> they did not want them to go. they did not think that it was a good look for us to go there. what do you think a presidents handling? 32% approve, 55% disapprove. >> this was part of a big
11:37 pm
strategic pivot from the biden administration. in the past it has been about human rights, they have not talked about our strategic interest in getting more energy production and also performing a bulwark against iran. those are two very important strategic goals. they have kind of gotten back on the right track, but the messaging has been mixed and the saudis do not seem fully ready to play ball. not getting the energy production we were hoping for. the type of oil extraction they may announce before biden came back to washington. they are allowing some airspace over israel, but we have not seen the type of wide ranging agreement people expected during this trip. >> a fist bump heard around the world. among the critics of that are a democrat who tweeted this, if we ever needed a visual reminder of what is on u.s. foreign policy, we got it today.
11:38 pm
one fist bump is worth 1000 words. >> yeah. look, this was not a great thing. i don't think anyone wanted to see the president of the united states going off and giving a bear hug to an autocrat who is responsible for the murder of a journalist that lived in the united states. no one wanted to see that. i would rather see a fist bump from the president of the united states in a bear hug from vladimir putin. that is the alternative. the alternative is we give up our strategic positioning in the middle east and russia and china are dancing around ready to swoop in. i think that the president is right to keep human rights on the agenda. he has right to pressure the crowned prince. but, at a time when we cannot
11:39 pm
afford to give russia and china that kind of a foothold in the middle east. at a time when inflation, we are seeing soaring gas prices. we don't want to do anything to exacerbate the situation with oil. this trip was a necessity. >> let's talk about the president's performance. when we ask about economy and inflation, the president is upside down by double digits. >> they are very much related to this previous thread. i tend to look at policy from the standpoint of the forgotten american. when they see that fist bump, will they understand that presidents have to travel abroad? they also understand that there is a lack of fist bump when it comes to oil and gas selection. if we want to lower inflation, we have to attack energy prices. we should be rebranding up
11:40 pm
production here in texas and wyoming and north dakota. places the president does not like to travel. i have no problem with the president of the united states traveling nationally, but if he wants to tend to these holes, stop giving fist bumps to autocrats and start giving them to the forgotten americans. >> let's talk about the climate situation. democrats have been pushing for the big package it will go after climate change issues. entered joe mansion. as we often do, on capitol hill. joe mansion has put the brakes on a lot of what he wants to deal. i want to place the democrats that are talking about how mad they are at joe mansion. >> i am extremely mad. this is not just one or two democrat agendas. this is a democratic agenda that he has been disrupting since the very beginning. it shows very clearly that he is unable to close a deal.
11:41 pm
you cannot trust what he says. >> how is he the one making the decisions on climate change? >> we all have a sinking suspicion. the democrats hiding behind joe mansion on these issues. >> it is true. holding the football away every time from the democratic party. they have a right to be frustrated in a 5050 senate. they have to think about the interest for joe mansion he was up for reelection in 2024. he is in an energy producing state where any move to green energy and any move to regulate the fossil fuel industry will be very unpopular. democrats have put all of their hopes and raise their optimism at joe mansion will suddenly give them this comprehensive social spending package that will tackle climate change. it never was really in the cards. joe mansion has never had the political interest to play
11:42 pm
foley. >> he is obviously always try to appeal to the voters at home. west virginia where it makes a big difference. we also have a polling here on president biden. potentially running for reelection. he is upside down again with a lot of these groups. with women, with moderates, people under age 30. with independence. 72% approve entrée -- 72% disapprove. >> i will say this. the president has to continue to get out there make a case on the economy. that is number one, number two and number three. having said that, the best thing democrats have going for them and these midterms as they are running against republicans who are in state after state after state, particularly in the senate, house is a different story, particularly in the senate where you are seeing
11:43 pm
races in an environment that should be devastating for democrats are far more competitive because of the republican candidates. the environment has changed. the conversation. it will be near impossible. it has changed enough. we will talk and take a quick break. the fundraising and bodhi are enthusiasm headed into the enthusiasm headed into the election

11:47 pm
re- taking control of the senate. we are back now with our panel. democrat versus republican. republican still have a three-point advantage here. i asked the senator, there are these conversations about is the gop overconfident. >> i always want people to be excited about going to the polls. i want to deliver that message and your poll indicates that. there is been a dissipation and support for both sides. democrats and republicans. i think it should be a warning sign for people that are
11:48 pm
conservatives. the climate has shifted. since the dobbs decision. politics also is a related reality. the second is it really does come down to candidates. i think while the conservative movement has done a good job of helping to recruit some good candidates, but think that is a bit of a frustration across the conservative movement is that there is not a unified set of policies around which a conservative house majority and a conservative senate majority wants to govern. we are trying to keep their feet to the fire on that. it is far more important to be conservative than it is to be a republican. if the republicans were to do that in their house and senate races, you would start to see the american people come home and deliver large majorities. >> new york magazine has this headline. six awful gop candidates. who could save the u.s. senate.
11:49 pm
primary spacing in august. current senator johnson in wisconsin, they go on to say fortunately for the donkey party republicans have some senate nominees with real weaknesses. what races are you really watching for this potential? >> i think george, definitely. especially when you look at the trump backed candidates like ohio, blake masters we will see. he still has the primaries as well. i think it's a little too early about what the new yorker just wrote. people are not doing general election. democrats have got funding post jobs. especially looking at a statewide race, the fox news poll is democrats and republicans are both extremely motivated to vote. that is not something i think any of us have seen in recent polling, at least in this election cycle. that is what really stuck out to me.
11:50 pm
when you get into these statewide races, does this hold? i remember in 2018 during cavanagh we all got really excited and thought maybe we will not actually loose and we famously actually dead. we will see if the enthusiasm holds. it should pick out to every candidate. >> which of these races do you think are the best options for democrats? >> look, i think georgia is a really fascinating state. the current polling shows them going and splitting. going in opposite directions in a way that is very helpful to the house and senate. i think pennsylvania is one of the democrats biggest pickup opportunities. a really fascinating race with two very colorful candidates. a state that has been very purple. battleground state at the presidential and senate level.
11:51 pm
should be the kind of state that looks good for republicans in an environment like this is not looking good for republicans right now. i think ohio has been a fascinating race. in a very real way, they have, democrats have a candidate there who kinda fits perfectly what the voters would want in a democrat. the republicans have an exciting candidate, one that has some problematic comments. it is just a more competitive race than anyone would have expected in a environment like this. the conversation has changed. especially in the past few months because of the supreme court decision on abortion and because of the shootings in places like awful low and taxes. people are anxious. the economic anxiety is spreading into other aspects of
11:52 pm
people's lives that is not helpful to republicans. >> we have the economy at the top of the list of what people are worried about. republicans feel like it will be good issues for them. we also are all looking ahead this week to the primetime hearing of the january 6 committee on thursday night. a lot of conversation about whether this teases president trump's ability to again. they have no power to prosecute and they don't seem to be cooperating with the doj at this point. what is the point of this committee? >> this could be the final hearing about the january 6 riots. it will be what trump knew and how long he knew it. the political impact of the keyrings are at large. i don't think it will have a dramatic impact on the elections. it may give some republican second thoughts about supporting president trump again. the midterms are reporting that
11:53 pm
