Donald Trump talks about his showdown with a Univision reporter, Ted Cruz lashes out at Planned Parenthood and the Obama administration’s Iran policy and Jeb Bush chides Hillary Clinton over emails as all three Republican presidential hopefuls appear on a talk show hosted by Sarah Palin.
UNITED STATES (AUGUST 28, 2015) (ONE AMERICA NEWS NETWORK) – Former Alaska Governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin hosted Republican presidential hopefuls Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush on a television talk show ‘On Point with Sarah Palin’ on Friday (August 28).
Speaking with Trump, Palin asked him about the incident at a press conference on August 26 when Univision reporter Jorge Ramos was tossed out of the event for asking a question out of turn.
“We’re did you get your guts for that kind of necessary confrontation?,” said Palin.
“He was totally out of line. He was screaming and ranting and raving and I actually said, ‘Who is this guy?’ and then I figured it out,” said Trump.
Ramos, who later returned to the televised event, was trying to query Trump when the real estate mogul told him several times to sit down.
After Ramos said he had the right to ask a question, Trump said: “No, you don’t. You haven’t been called. Go back to Univision.”
As Ramos kept trying to question Trump, the candidate called on another reporter. A security official then removed Ramos from the room.
“It was a press conference and they were waiting to have questions and I was going to ask them, I would have gotten to him, but he stood up and started screaming all over the place and frankly Sarah the press was pretty good to me on that, I mean they agreed with what I did,” said Trump.
Trump is locked in a legal battle with Univision over the network’s recent decision to cancel its contract to broadcast the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants, co-owned by Trump, after he made controversial remarks about undocumented Latino immigrants.
Trump, the front runner for the Republican party’s presidential nomination, has opened a 20-point lead over his closes rival according to a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll.
“We’re having a lot of fun,” said Trump. “There’s a tremendous group of people out there that just want to see this country be great again and that’s what I’m seeing and it really is resonating.”
Palin asked Texas Senator Ted Cruz about the issue of Planned Parenthood and the controversy surrounding undercover videos that showed Planned Parenthood officials discussing the illegal sale of aborted fetal tissue.
“On my first day in office as president I intend to direct the U.S. Department of Justice to open an investigation into Planned Parenthood and to prosecute any and all criminal violations,” said Cruz.
When Congress returns from summer recess on Sept. 8, efforts to halt federal funds for the organization could be part of budget negotiations.
“We have Republican majorities in both houses. In my view, we should act like it and we should stand together and say we are going to fund the entire federal government but we’re not going to fund the ongoing murder and the sale of the body parts of unborn children,” Cruz told Palin.
Cruz also criticized the Obama Administration over the deal reached between the U.S, world powers and Iran over the country’s nuclear program, which the Israeli government has been highly critical of.
“That’s the problem with the Obama/Clinton foreign policy. They can’t tell good guys from bad guys,” said Cruz.
“If you look abroad this administration, leading from behind, they’ve alienated and abandoned all of our allies. We’ve never seen an administration more hostile to the nation of Israel than the Obama administration.”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu strongly opposes the accord reached between Iran and the United States and five other world powers, which imposes limits on Iran’s nuclear program in return for relief from sanctions. He argues the deal does not do enough to curb Iran’s nuclear program and will bring Tehran a windfall in sanctions relief that could help fund regional conflicts.
“If this deal goes through, the Obama administration without exaggeration will become the world’s leading financier of radical Islamic terrorism,” Cruz told Palin.
The White House on Friday expressed confidence that it has the support in Congress necessary to sustain a veto of a resolution to reject the Iran nuclear agreement.
Deal supporters need 34 of the 100 senators or 146 members of the 435-seat House to sustain a veto.
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush took the occasion on Palin’s show to talk about a new book he’s come out with called “Reply All,” which is based on thousands of emails exchanges he had with residents of Florida while he was governor.
The discussion about the book led to the issue of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account while she served as U.S. Secretary of State.
“It does compare dramatically different than the Hillary world where she had a private email, secret. She didn’t tell anybody about it. She didn’t provide all the information and you can get my emails through public records requests that I’m writing a book about it. To get her emails, you need a subpoena.”
Clinton has suffered a steady erosion in the number of people in opinion polls who see her as trustworthy as controversy has grown over her use of a private email account when she served as America’s top diplomat.
Palin served as a guest host in this week’s show “On Point’ which airs on the One America News Network.
