JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): She says this land was stolen. This land wasn't stolen. We won this land on the battlefield and we bought it. Right? We purchased Spain. I mean we purchased Florida from Spain. We have the receipts. What, do you want to give Florida back to Spain? 

GERALDO RIVERA (CO-HOST): How about the Seminoles? The Apaches?

WATTERS: Well, what about them, Geraldo? We won that territory on the battlefield. It was an ugly, brutal battle but we won it.

We're not just going to give everything back to the indigenous people of this country. That's just -- no -- no civilization -- what, did the Moors come into Spain and conquer them for 800 years and people say, "Oh, let's just give it back to Spain?"

Just -- it's just not reality.
