HEGSETH: They're going to keep picking a fight with us, no matter what. They've got a caliphate with a black flag flying over it.

MCFARLAND: Not if they're bankrupt!

HEGSETH: They've got Raqqa. They've got Mosul. And they're staying there. And will we be willing to bomb their capital and bomb it the way it needs to happen? We know where their headquarters are. We just won't do it.


HANNITY: Obama wouldn't do it because he didn't want any environmental damage.

HEGSETH: I think Trump would be willing to.

HANNITY: Of course he would.

HEGSETH: And the American people would rally to defeating the caliphate.

HANNITY: Walid, I think that's a good point. Obama wouldn't do it. He did little pinpricks. There was no overwhelming use of force, and then there was concern about, well, there might be environmental damage if we bomb the oil wells and take their money away.

PHARES: That was another concern, Sean. The reality is the Obama administration could have destroyed ISIS if it wanted. We have the best military in the world. It's Iran that didn't want this to happen because they wanted to seize those areas. This is where a Trump administration is going to have a different strategy. We and our allies will destroy ISIS. Details will come later, but we're going to make sure the Iranians and other jihadi group is not going to come after us. It's always the day after we need to think about.

HANNITY: All right, guys, thank you all for being with us. Good to see you, Pete. Congrats on the book.

And coming up next tonight here on HANNITY --


DONALD TRUMP, (R) PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: You have millions of people out there that can't get jobs. We're going to bring our jobs back to our country, and we're not going to let people leave so easily anymore.



HANNITY: Donald Trump is a very successful businessman and he promises if elected that he'll bring back jobs from Mexico, he'll fix the economy. Coming up next, Charles Gasparino, Nicole Petallides, Gerri Willis will weigh in on Trump's plans as this special edition of HANNITY continues.


PATRICIA STARK, FOX NEWS CORRESPONDENT: Live from America's news headquarters, I'm Patricia Stark.

A federal security officer suspected in three deadly shootings in the Washington, D.C., area was charged today. The 62-year-old is facing first- degree murder after he allegedly shot and killed his estranged wife yesterday. Police believe he may also be connected to two other deadly shootings that happened today, one at a mall and another about a half hour later at a grocery store.

And while speaking at the White House, President Obama used the deteriorating state of the D.C. rail system as one example of the, quote, "underinvestment in the nation's infrastructure." The president is pinning the blame on the Republican-led Congress. He says there are bridges, roads, and pipes across the country that are being neglected, and that Republican lawmakers haven't been serious about fixing them.

I'm Patricia Stark. And now back to HANNITY. For all your headlines, logon to

HANNITY: Welcome back to the special edition of "HANNITY, Road to the White House, Donald Trump on the Issues." Now, if Trump does become president, he's going to have to do a lot of work to fix America's broken economy of course caused by years of Obama's failed policies. Here's where Trump stands on this very important issue. Let's take a look.


TRUMP: We're going to bring back our jobs and we're going to keep our jobs. We're not going to let companies leave. Now, if they want to go to a different state, good luck. Compete. But when they start going to different countries that in many cases are countries that devalue their currency and make it impossible for our companies to compete, that's not going to happen.

You have millions of people out there that can't get jobs. We're going to bring our jobs back to our country. And we're not going to let people leave so easily anymore.

We're bringing our jobs back to this country, and companies that want to leave, they're going to have to pay the consequences. I mean, if they want to leave for Mexico and going to make product and sell it, they're going to have to pay the consequences, which in this case is going to be taxes. They're going to have to pay a tax if they want to come back into the country.

With me, they're paying a 35 percent tax as soon as they leave, folks. And they're never going to leave.



HANNITY: Joining us from the FOX business network, Charles Gasparino, Nicole Petallides and Gerri Willis. By the way, I got a chance to read and endorse a brand new book "Rich is not a Four-Letter Word" out now in bookstores and It really isn't.

I look at this economic plan. I like the idea we become energy independent, we create millions of jobs, it's good for our national security. You let all of these multinational corporations that have trillions or billions of dollars, I think trillions, about $2 trillion or $3 trillion, overseas, bring it back at a low tax rate, build manufacturing centers and factories. Good idea?

GERRI WILLIS, "RICH IS NOT A FOUR-LETTER WORD" AUTHOR: He wants a 15 percent corporate tax rate.

HANNITY: Right, lower tax rate.

WILLIS: In order to bring it way, way down, he wants to bring down individual tax rates. The top tax rate would be 25 percent. This would turn a lot of money over to the private sector, a lot of money over to individuals. This would cause the economy to grow and grow dramatically, one percent a year. Over ten years -- you say Gerri, that's not much, but over ten years that's 10 percent growth.

HANNITY: And Nicole, Obama is the last quarter, 0.5 percent. He's the only president in eight years that will never reach three percent growth in a year.

NICOLE PETALLIDES, FOX BUSINESS NETWORK: I can tell that I talk to all the Wall Street traders all the time. As a matter of fact today I talked to several of them just about this segment alone asking about Trump's policies and what do they think. And you know what, they embrace it. They want a political maverick. They want someone to make some changes.

They're willing to take obviously some challenges and some obviously risk with this, but they mike what they're seeing. They like what Gerri just noted, 15 percent from 40 percent. They like getting rid of the inversions, bringing back $2.5 trillion back to the States.

HANNITY: That's a lot of money.

PETALLIDES: We don't want to be Japan.

HANNITY: There's a critic in the corner, Gasparino.

CHARLES GASPARINO, FOX BUSINESS NETWORK: I'm the voice of reason. Let's be clear, there's a difference between the few traders that are left on the floor of the stock exchange and most major investors.

PETALLIDES: He likes to note that.



GASPARINO: Most major investors are scared to death of Donald Trump. They're scared to death --

PETALLIDES: OK, about John -- go ahead.

GASPARINO: How about Paul Singer. How much money could John --

PETALLIDES: All right, here's the point. Monetary policy versus --

GASPARINO: No, no. Listen, a trade war. One of the basics that has allowed our economy to grow in good times, forget the Obama administration. You're comparing him to the largest midget in the room when it's President Obama's economy, has been free trade. Donald Trump wants to start a trade war with China.

HANNITY: That's not what he said at all.

GASPARINO: I'm sure he does. He wants 45 percent -- 45 percent tariffs.

HANNITY: I'm listening to you and you guys are talking about rich Wall Street guys. Here's the problem.


HANNITY: And 20 percent of American families don't have a single person employed.

GASPARINO: How many jobs --

HANNITY: I'm not done. And 95 million Americans out of the labor force, 50 million in poverty.


GASPARINO: Use your head, Sean. Use your head.

WILLIS: Americans are still suffering. This continues. Median incomes are down.

GASPARINO: Who doesn't know that?


WILLIS: -- any policies to change this? I don't think so. Donald Trump does.

GASPARINO: Are you telling me repealing --

WILLIS: I'm not going to answer your questions. This is an important fact.

GASPARINO: Are you saying repealing NAFTA is going to bring factories back to upstate New York?

HANNITY: Fracking would bring jobs to upstate New York.

GASPARINO: I agree with that.

HANNITY: That's part of his policy to allow it.

GASPARINO: By repealing NAFTA, we'd be getting into a trade war --

HANNITY: That's not what he said. If you listen closely --

GASPARINO: Listen closely, 45 tariff?

HANNITY: Can I finish?


HANNITY: If you listen closely -- what he's saying, he's never given a percent that I heard.

GASPARINO: Yes, he has.

HANNITY: But what he has said is that he is going to negotiate better trade deals. There's a huge trade imbalance -- wait a minute. You try and sell an American car in China, good luck to you.

GASPARINO: We are selling cars in China.

HANNITY: No, we're not. We're getting rammed --

GASPARINO: Dealer sells 95 percent of their products overseas, not here. Engage in an overseas trade war.

HANNITY: They're engaged in one with us. We're just not fighting back.

PETALLIDES: I agree with Charlie. I've talked to a lot of people, they are nervous about that. But when you talk at home, when you're talking about Americans and concerns about lower income Americans, a single person who makes less than $25,000, a married couple who makes --

HANNITY: How about the people out of work that make nothing?

PETALLIDES: They're not going to have to pay anything. He simplifies the tax brackets from --

HANNITY: Wait a minute.

PETALLIDES: He's making it simpler.

HANNITY: The unbalance in the trade has resulted in less manufacturing, less factories in America, Americans out of work.


HANNITY: And then the Americans that are out of work now have to compete with illegal immigrants that drive down wages and take opportunities.

WILLIS: That's why Trump has been so popular and why he's gotten so much currency and why people are listening to him.

HANNITY: That's why he's won.

GASPARINO: Sean, here's your economic theory. Build a wall, only sell to ourselves. It ain't happening.

HANNITY: Why do you make this stuff up? You're out of your mind. That is not what I said. That's not what he says.

GASPARINO: Its' 45 percent tariffs.

HANNITY: Oh, my gosh.

WILLIS: I think he's going to end up working with other countries.

GASPARINO: He didn't say that.

PETALLIDES: What he's saying is --

HANNITY: He said he would negotiate better trade deals.


HANNITY: Because there's such an imbalance. That imbalance has resulted in Americans losing jobs.

GASPARINO: If they manipulate the currency, like we manipulate, because we manipulate the currency --

HANNITY: They do it more than us.

GASPARINO: It's called quantitative easing.

HANNITY: That's really horrible. I can't stand quantitative easing.

WILLIS: He's done little thing, incentives to keep these companies here, at home. How about impoverished cities in Baltimore, have more incentives to stay there. He could be the greatest jobs person God ever created.

HANNITY: Go vote for Hillary. Go vote for Hillary.


GASPARINO: By the way, Donald Trump didn't invent the tax cut. You do realize that?

HANNITY: John Kennedy did it. Let's see, Ronald Reagan did it.

GASPARINO: And Mitt Romney wanted to do it, and every Republican candidate. The difference between them and Donald Trump is he wants to engage in a trade war.

HANNITY: That's not what he said.

WILLIS: We don't want more regulation, either. We left out another point. How about more regulation?

HANNITY: Talked about remedying regulations.


GASPARINO: Who doesn't like regulation?

HANNITY: The only one not frustrating me here is Gerri. Gerri Willis' book right there "Rich is not a Four-Letter Word."


WILLIS: "Jobs" is a four-letter word.

HANNITY: Up next on this special edition of HANNITY --


TRUMP: There are so many things you could have privately to take care of health care. Obamacare is out of control, premiums are going up 25, 35, 45, 55 percent. We're going to repeal it and replace it with something great.


HANNITY: Donald Trump has promised to repeal and replace Obamacare. We're going to show you more of how he plans to do it and get reaction from Eboni Williams and Monica Crowley as this special edition of "HANNITY, Road to the White House: Trump on the Issues" continues.



TRUMP: There are so many things you could have privately to take care of health care. Obamacare is out of control. Your premiums are going up 25, 35, 45, 55 percent. We're going to repeal it. We're going to replace it with something great.

We don't win with health care. Obamacare is a disaster.

With health care, we have to repeal and replace Obamacare.

GASPARINO: What would you replace it with?

TRUMP: Health care savings accounts, which are great. We have to get rid of the lines. We have to create competition. When you do that, you will have the best health care you've ever, ever had, and it will be at a reasonable cost.

We have to get rid of the lines around the states so that there's serious, serious competition. And you're going to see -- excuse me, then you're going to see preexisting conditions and everything else be part of it, but the price will be down. And the insurance companies can pay. Right now they're making a fortune.


HANNITY: And welcome back to this special edition of HANNITY. That was Trump explaining his plans to improve America's health care system. Another key issue in this election is the Supreme Court as the next president may have nominate a new justice or many. Here's Trump in his own words on that issue. Take a look.


TRUMP: I'm going to name 10 or 12 judges that I would recommend to put on the Supreme Court, and I'm going to name them up front, and I'm only going to take the judges out of that pool of judges, because I want people to understand that I want the values, in terms of the Republican party and the conservatives, I want judges that are going to be happy with that. I'm going to actually name 10 or 12 judges up front, and that would be a pool of which I will take and only take from that.


HANNITY: Here with reaction, FOX News contributors Monica Crowley and Eboni Williams. I love the idea, especially conservatives, that they be skeptical of Donald Trump, says he is going to layout 10, 12 names of people for the Supreme Court that people will know ahead of time, and it's only from that pool that he will choose from. It's a good idea.

MONICA CROWLEY, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: What is so fascinating is that the two front runners on both sides have yet to lock down their bases, right? Hillary Clinton has yet to lock down the far left which is still with Bernie Sanders. And on the right Donald Trump has some work to do with the conservative base. One of the most important things he can do to reassure a lot of people who have concerns --

HANNITY: Right there, that's a huge issue.

CROWLEY: Because he is an unknown quantity, and he's talked about this so many times before, is release the list of conservative judges who are strict constitutionalists.

HANNITY: He's going to do it. Can you imagine, what if Mike Lee and Ted Cruz's name popped up on that list?

EBONI WILLIAMS, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: I think that would be music to Ted Cruz's ears, right? Remember, right before he dropped out Ted Cruz hit hard on this issue. You know, a very powerful ad talking about the skepticism around what a Trump nominee to the Supreme Court would look like. So I think that will go a long way.

HANNITY: Do you remember one debate Donald Trump was talking about the lines, the lines became an issue. Because I interviewed him just before that debate, and he went into detail about health care savings accounts, and said it over and over again. But on the campaign trail every one of his opponents kept saying he kept referring to the Canadian system, which, by the way, he did. But that is not on his website and that's not what he kept telling me again and again, he would go for health care savings accounts.

CROWLEY: Look, Since Obamacare was signed into law in 2010, every time Republican candidates have run on repealing and replacing Obamacare, they won in droves, in 2010, in 2014. In 2012, Mitt Romney because he was the grandfather of Romneycare in Massachusetts couldn't legitimately make it an argument.

If Donald Trump continues to make this argument, repeal, replace Obamacare, replace it with patient-based and market-based solutions like the private accounts and so on, allowing insurance to be bought over state lines.

HANNITY: Portability, sure.

CROWLEY: He will win on that issue and might even win the presidency just on that alone.

HANNITY: Especially because prices this year on average --

CROWLEY: They're going up one week before the presidential election.

WILLIAMS: It's a good opportunity for Donald Trump to be the compassionate conservative, right? Because we have seen him on debate stages talk about people shouldn't be dying in the streets. In their resumes now, some of the far right were booing it.


WILLIAMS: It wasn't you. It was someone else.

HANNITY: Someone was OK with that?

WILLIAMS: I think they felt it sounded a little too close to government- supported health care, but Trump has now rectified it. To Monica's point, he's clarified. He's been more specific.

HANNITY: You're voting for Trump, aren't you?

WILLIAMS: Not only is he going to repeal but replace. That replace part is important.

HANNITY: Are you voting for Trump?

WILLIAMS: I actually haven't decided. My mother is voting for Trump.

HANNITY: Coming up, we have more of this special edition of "HANNITY, Road to the White House, Donald Trump on the Issues,"as we continue.
