Kellyanne Conway weighs in on possible replacements for Bolton


ANYTHING. THANK YOU.>>Sandra: PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYING HE IS CONSIDERING FIVE CANDIDATES NOW TO REPLACE JOHN BOLTON AS THE NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR AMID SPECULATION THAT MIKE POMPEO COULD TAKE ON THAT JOB IN ADDITION TO HIS DUTIES AS SECRETARY OF STATE. THE PRESIDENT EXPLAINING SOME OF THE REASONS HE LET JOHN BOLTON GO.>>President Trump: HE MADE SOME VERY BIG MISTAKES WHEN HE TALKED ABOUT THE LIBYAN MODEL FOR KIM JONG-UN. THAT WAS NOT A GOOD STATEMENT TO MAKE. AND IT SET US BACK. BUT HE IS SOMEBODY THAT I ACTUALLY HAD A VERY GOOD RELATIONSHIP BACK BUT HE WASN’T GETTING ALONG WITH PEOPLE IN THE ADMINISTRATION THAT I CONSIDER VERY IMPORTANT.>>Sandra: JOINING US NOW COUNSEL TO THE PRESIDENT KELLYANNE CONWAY. GOOD MORNING TO YOU. IS IT DOWN TO FIVE STILL FOR THE PRESIDENT ON WHO HE IS CONSIDERING FOR THE JOB?>>THAT’S A FAIR NUMBER. THE PRESIDENT ALSO SAID IN THOSE REMARKS YESTERDAY SANDRA THAT HE WISHES JOHN BOLTON WELL AND I WOULD LIKE TO ECHO THAT SENTIMENT. WE SHOULD BE HAPPY AND PRAISING OF PEOPLE WHO ARE WILLING TO SERVE OUR NATION IN THESE CAPACITIES. AT THE SAME TIME, THE PRESIDENT IS THE PERSON WHO GOT ELECTED AND HE SHOULD HAVE THE TEAM AROUND HIM HE WANTS AT EVERY LEVEL. I BELIEVE SECRETARY OF STATE POMPEO IS DOING AN EXCELLENT JOB OVER AT STATE AND THAT HE WILL, OF COURSE, HAVE INPUT INTO WHO THE NEXT NSC HEAD IS AS WELL. THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE OF DIVERSE BACKGROUNDS ALL SOLID CANDIDATES. I KNOW FIRST-HAND THE PRESIDENT IS CONSIDERING FOR THAT POSITION.>>Sandra: ANYONE THAT YOU CAN NAME?>>NO, I WON’T DO THAT. I’VE SEEN NAMES BEING FLOATED IN THE PRESS. SOME ARE BEING SERIOUSLY CONSIDERED BY OUR COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF AND PRESIDENT. HE HAS MANY DIFFERENT WAYS TO GO. IN THE END IT’S HIS FOREIGN POLICY NATIONAL SECURITY AGENDA THAT NEEDS TO BE EXECUTED, IMPLEMENTED. THIS PRESIDENT HAS BEEN TRANSPARENT AND SUCCESSFUL IN TERMS OF COMMUNICATING DIRECTLY WITH THE PUBLIC WHAT HE SEES AS BAD ACTORS AROUND THE WORLD THAT HE MET WITH.>>Sandra: I HAVE SO MUCH I WANT TO GET TO HERE. WITHIN THE FIVE IS MIKE POMPEO THERE? THERE ARE REPORTS OBVIOUSLY THAT HIS ROLE COULD JUST EXPAND AND THAT HE WOULD TAKE OVER THE NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR ROLE AND THAT TITLE WOULD SORT OF GO AWAY AND FALL UNDER HIS CURRENT CATEGORY AS SECRETARY OF STATE. IS THAT BEING CONSIDERED?>>THAT’S SOMETHING THAT PRESIDENTS NIXON AND FORD DID WITH HENRY KISSINGER. I WOULD CALL THAT FIVE PLUS AS THE NUMBER OF CANDIDATES. CLEARLY SECRETARY OF STATE HAS THE PRESIDENT’S EAR AND HIS TRUST AND HAS BEEN MAKING GREAT STRIDES IN IMPLEMENTING THE PRESIDENT’S AGENDA AROUND THE GLOBE AND HE WILL CONTINUE TO BE A VERY IMPORTANT STRONG VOICE HERE AS AMERICA’S TOP DIPLOMAT.>>Sandra: THAT DECISION, SHOULD WE EXPECT IT BY TOMORROW?>>THE TIMING AND THE DECISION ARE ALL THE PRESIDENT’S AND WE’LL BE READY FOR THAT. HE CAN’T GO WRONG WITH THE NUMBER OF NAMES HE HAS.>>Sandra: THE SUPREME COURT SIDED WITH THE ADMINISTRATION ON ASYLUM IN THE CENTRAL AMERICAN MIGRANTS HAVE TO BE DENIED ASYLUM IN ANOTHER COUNTRY BEFORE BECOMING HERE. THE PRESIDENT VIEWED IT AS A VICTORY. WE ALREADY HEARD FROM HIM. HOW BIG IS THIS?>>IT’S A HUGE VICTORY AND THE SECOND VICTORY THIS SUMMER HANDED BY THE SUPREME COURT FOR THE PRESIDENT’S VISION ON BORDER SECURITY. EARLIER THIS SUMMER THE SUPREME COURT BY A VOTE OF 5-4 CONFIRMED — ALLOWS THE PENTAGON TO SHIFT $2.5 BILLION TOWARD BORDER SECURITY. YESTERDAY THE 7-2 DECISION PUTS OUT THAT THIS PRESIDENT’S ASYLUM LAW CAN CONTINUE TO BE EXECUTED UPON. THAT’S A NEW CHANGE TO OUR SYSTEM. ESSENTIALLY A SIMPLE ONE THAT SAYS IF YOU’RE COMING HERE SEEKING TO COME INTO THIS COUNTRY, YOU MUST FIRST SEEK SAFE HAVEN IN THE COUNTRIES THAT YOU PASS THROUGH. THE MEXICAN PRESIDENT HAS BEEN A TERRIFIC PARTNER WITH THIS PRESIDENT ON TRYING TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN IN MEXICO. IF YOU GO FROM ONE OF THE NORTHERN TRIANGLE COUNTRIES TO MEXICO, STOP THERE AND SEEK SAFE HAVEN FIRST. WE’LL CONTINUE TO IMPLEMENT THAT. TWO SUPREME COURT VICTORIES. TWO NEW REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMEN IN NORTH CAROLINA BECAUSE OF THE PRESIDENT CAMPAIGNING FOR THEM AND GIVING THE CLOSING ARGUMENT. 2018s ELECTION AND FLIPPING TWO OF THE COUNTIES. ON TOP OF THAT THE PRESIDENT HAS 150th FEDERAL JUDGE.>>Sandra: YOU BROUGHT UP MEXICO. MEXICO HAS SAID THEY DISAGREE WITH THIS MOVE. THEY DISAGREE WITH THIS DECISION. DOES THE PRESIDENT HAVE PLANS TO FURTHER TALK WITH MEXICO? I KNOW THEY SAY RELATIONS ARE GOOD. BUT THEY FIRMLY PUT OUT A STATEMENT SAYING THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THEY AGREE WITH.>>WE’VE BEEN APPRECIATIVE ON MANY OF THE POSITIVE NEWS THE MEXICAN GOVERNMENT HAS MADE WITH RESPECT TO SECURING ITS BORDER AS WELL AND TRYING TO PUT A NUMBER OF THEIR MILITARY ON THE BORDER AND TROOPS ON THE BORDER AND HELPING US TO GET AN IMMIGRATION POLICY IN IN COUNTRY THAT WORKS FOR THE ENTIRE REGION. WE’RE FOCUSED ON PASSAGE OF THE USMCA. THAT’S UP TO SPEAKER PELOSI. NO APPETITE AMONG THE PUBLIC FOR IMPEACHMENT. WHY NOT FOCUS ON THE USMCA. WE’RE READY. ALL THOSE WORKERS IN THE INDUSTRIES THAT WOULD BE DRAMATICALLY IMPACTED IN A POSITIVE FASHION ARE WAITING FOR THE USMCA AND WE NEED MEXICO’S HELPING IN KEEPING DRUGS OUT OF OUR COUNTRY AS WELL AT THE SOUTHERN BORDER.>>Sandra: I WANT TO ASK YOU ABOUT THE GUN LEGISLATION AND THE PRESIDENT’S PROPOSALS. WILL WE HEAR FROM THE PRESIDENT BY END OF DAY?>>YOU MAY. THE PRESIDENT IS BEING BRIEFED TODAY BUT HE ALSO JUST THIS WEEK, SANDRA, HAS HAD CALLS WITH REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATIC LAWMAKERS AS THEY’VE RETURNED TO WASHINGTON AFTER A LONG RECESS. HIS STAFF HAS BEEN WORKING ON THIS FOR SEVEN STRAIGHT WEEKS IN A BIPARTISAN FASHION. WE KNOW THERE IS AN ENTIRE AMENDMENT COMMITTED TO PROTECTING LEGALLY PROCURED FIREARMS IN THE HANDS OF LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS. THERE ARE MILLIONS — TENS OF MILLIONS OF LEGAL GUN OWNERS IN THE COUNTRY AND WE’RE FOCUSED ON PUBLIC SAFETY. I WAS IN A MEETING AT THE WHITE HOUSE WITH THE NATION’S MAYORS OF HARD-HIT CITIES LIKE DAYTON, OHIO, PARKLAND IN THAT MEETING. WE’RE LISTENING TO THEM AS WELL. THERE ARE A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT PIECES OF LEGISLATION WE’RE LOOKING AT.>>Sandra: WHAT GUN PROPOSALS COULD THE PRESIDENT SUPPORT?>>THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT KINDS OF BACKGROUND CHECKS. THIS PRESIDENT HAS DONE MORE THAN MOST PRESIDENTS ON THAT INSOFAR AS HE SIGNED AN ACT IN MARCH OF 2018. THAT HELPED LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT STOP THOSE FROM SECURING — CHRIS COONS OF DELAWARE AND RISK PROTECTION ORDER, RED FLAG WITH TWEAKS THOSE COULD WORK. THE PRESIDENT IS FOCUSED ON MENTAL HEALTH. WE’RE ACUTELY AWARE THAT PEOPLE SHAKE THEIR HEADS. HOW COULD THE KID IN PARKLAND WHEN HE IS BRAGGING HE WOULD LIKE TO BE A SCHOOL SHOOTER AND THE AUTHORITIES VISITED HIS HOME 32 TIMES. IN DAYTON, OHIO, THOSE JUVENILE RECORDS DON’T FOLLOW HIM INTO ADULTHOOD. WE NEED TO CHANGE THOSE — THE SYSTEM SO THOSE SHOOTERS DON’T HAVE ACCESS. WE BELIEVE THAT THE PRESIDENT IS VERY FOCUSED AND HE IS WORKING ON IT EVERY DAY.>>Sandra: THE PRESIDENT WILL WATCH THE DEBATE TONIGHT.>>TONIGHT THE PRESIDENT IS HELICOPTERING TO BALTIMORE TO ADDRESS THE HOUSE REPUBLICANS CONFERENCE. THEY ARE PLOTTING THE COMEBACK FOR 2020 TO GET THE HOUSE SO WE CAN GET RID OF OBAMACARE ALL TOGETHER AND GET BACK IN PLACE BETTER HEALTHCARE. HE IS GOING TO DOUBLE DOWN ON THE VICTORIES HE GOT IN NORTH CAROLINA DUE TO HIM GOING THERE LATE IN THE GAME. HE WILL BE FLYING BACK WHILE THAT DEBATE IS STARTING. WE KNOW WHAT THEY’LL SAY. THEY’LL TALK ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP. HAVE NO SOLUTIONS ON INFRASTRUCTURE, FIREARMS, DRUG PRICING.>>Sandra: REALLY APPRECIATE IT. WE NEED AN ON-AIR BUTTON AT THE
