int i understand why. it's a very rough system. it's an archaic system. you look at the rules of the house and senate and the things you have to go through. it's a bad thing for the country in my opinion. they're archaic rules. maybe at some point we're going to have to take those rules on. for the good of the nation, things are going to have to be different. you can't go through a process like this. it's not fair. forces you to make bad decisions. you're forced into doing things that you would normally not do except for these archaic rules. the filibuster concept is not a good concept to start off with, but if you're going to have f l filibuster, let someone stand up 20 hours and talk and do whey that have to do. the whole, so many bad concepts
in our rules and it's forcing bad decisions. >> as for presidential appointees reffing senate confirmation. analysis from nbc news finds the first 100 days trump's confirmation rate is average with other presidents. trump with 38 percent of nominees confirmed. president obama at 36%. bush saw 41% of his nominees get through. >> unleashed frustration on congressional democrats sunday morning. tweeted the democrats without a leader have become the party of obstruction. only interested in themselves. continued that line of criticism in an interview that aired sunday morning. the democrats have been totally obstructionist. chum chuck schumer has been a bad leader for the country. look where the democrats have ended up.
they had everything going. now they don't have the presidency, they don't have the house. they don't have the senate. schumer is going around making a fuel out himself. he's not governoring from it will middle. he's governoriing from the hard right. if he changes, we could work together. >> i see everything as an opportunity and i never seen so much willingness to help when and winning means winning for the american people. that either we win or whoever wins understands the priorities the of the american people and they are not what president trump -- so sorry, president bush. i never thought i would pray for the day you were presidenthow w
republican president t way we worked with president bush. >> how does this come out for the president in particular. a lot of the key dplands he originally had, they're not in this we accomplipublished add s weeks ago. the private rhetoric we were hearing. privately they're in no mood for a government funding fight. as soon as health care collapsed the first time, that took off the table any real appetite for the administration to fight, you know, to the death of on these things like the wall. this is not surprising at all. the democrats would never --
chuck schumer came up with a plan he wasn't going to fund the wall. that was never going to happen. the sanctuary city thing was a total -- was never going to happen as well. it's what we expected. the reason people have some distance is the public rhetoric was a lot more bullish. >> checking out your latest reporting you said the white house is ready to turn attention again to the health care. let's take a listen what the president said over the weekend. here it is. >> this bill has evolved. we didn't have a failure on the bill. it was reported like a failure. the one thing i wouldn't have done is put a timeline. the second it ration i didn't put a timeline. we have now preexisting conditions in the bill. set up a pool for the preexisting condition so that the premiums can be allowed to fall.
have been sceptical along. they won't come out publicly and say what donald trump said. don't want to put an artificial deadline. they are generally apt mystic something can get done. they ha they will say he livered. he has delivered the most intractable members of caucus. now it's a member of getti ting moderates on board. you much rather have to convince se centrist to come on than the very hard line conservative. also learning this morning

and i don't think the president of china who is a very respected man will be happy either. >> what do you make of the north korean leader. >> i have -- i really have no comment on him. people are saying is he sane? i have no idea. i can tell you this, a lot of people don't like when i say it, he was a young man of 26 or 27 when he took over from his father. when his father died. he's dealing with obviously very tough people, in particular the generals and others. and at a very young age, he was able to assume power. a lot of people i'm sure tried to take that power away. whether it was his uncle or anybody else. he was able to do it. obviously he's a pretty smart cooky. >>ie. >> interview broke with the president over his comments last
week south korea should pay for the $1 billion missile defense system to protect south korea from an attack by the north. >> what i told our south korean counter part, until any negotiation, the deal is in place. we'll adhere to our word. the president has asked us to look across all the alliance and have appropriate burden sharing and responsibility sharing. looking at that with great ally south korea, looking at that with nato. what you've seen because of the president's leadership, more and more nations are contributing more to our collective defense. >> still ahead, we're going to have more on the severe weather scene across the country. includes a late season blizzard in kansas if you can believe it. we're going to get full forecast. >> plus skips white house dinner. spends 12 minutes going after the media at a rally to mark 100 day. those stories and more come can go up next.
