STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): As of the close of business yesterday, the man in the middle of those talks, the Vice President Mike Pence, said the tariffs are still set to take effect on Monday as this president and the administration stands firm: Mexico needs to do more. You know, not just lip service. They actually need to agree to something.
BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): But Nancy Pelosi is not just the problem. John Thune's the problem. McConnell's the problem. Rand Paul is the problem. They want to take the president's leverage away.
