6:03 am
and dr. ben carson will be here and former u.s. embassador john bolton will be here as well. you don't want to miss the stelar lineup. as of this morning, there's the number, trump has secured 1,239 delegates surpassing that magic 1237 number needing to clinch the nomination. trump is celebrating the news at a campaign rally in montana last night. >> just remember, so we had a big day today, today was the day where we hit the 1237, right, 1237. [cheers and applause] >> and you had our president, he
6:04 am
will not be the nom' of this party, really, he's been right about that like he's been right about everything else, which is never. sandra: joining me now is ron myer along with democratic strategickist. ly start with you, first, your take on the race as it stands today, california shaping up to be interesting in the democratic race. >> it's a close race in california. in terms of trump getting the nomination, none of of us who are in politics saw this coming. even a month ago thought it would a contested convention. i mean, predictions don't count for too much after what we have seen in the last six months. that said, trump is still the unpopular major party nominee in the history of polling. his negatives ratings as high as
6:05 am
70%. most polls 65 and 70%. even inside the republican party you had major segments like republican women, up to 40% of republican women saying up to recently that he was unacceptable. if you look at the map, doesn't mean he can't win, it just means that he's behind right now with the electoral map, for sure. sandra: the word we use so much is momentum and momentum does seem to be despite the unfavorable for donald trump and momentum seems to be on donald trump's side at least for now. he's catching up to hillary clinton on the polls. i'm going to ask you, nobody has been right, where is this going from here? >> well, you know, the one thing that trump has been able to show that he can overperform expectations and one of these things is really interesting is the whole trump-bernie debate coming up. this whole play by him is doing something and it's really unconventional but brilliant.
6:06 am
sandra: but that's not a real thing, though, right? >> might be. >> it could be. dagen: kind of sort of might be. neither one of them has said no, it's not happening. sandra: i think bernie sanders really wants to think this is real. we have bernie sanders appearing on jimmy kimmel live last night and here is what was said. >> you saw the show last night, you saw what i did for you. >> you made it possible for us to have a very interesting debate. >> that's right. >> about two guy who is looked at the world very, very differently. >> oh, boy, do you guys look at it differently. >> i said last night on jimmy's show, it was, you know, the question that was posed but i want a lot of money for charity f we can raise for maybe women's health issues or something, if we can raise 10 or $15 million
6:07 am
for charity, which would be a very appropriate amount, i understand the television business very well, i think it would get very high ratings, it should be in a big arena somewhere and we would have fun with it. the problem with debating bernie is he's going the lose. sandra: hillary clinton is looking past bernie sanders focusing on the general election where she will likely face off presumptive nominee donald trump. here is what she says. >> i am telling you i am so looking forward to debating donald trump, i can't wait. [cheers and applause] sandra: all right, julian, first s -- is this real, all the networks have reached out to their campaign about this. >> well, what we thought yesterday was a little bit of a fantasy but sounds like today it might be coming real. bernie sanders says his reasons to want a debate and donald
6:08 am
trump has reasons to want to debate bernie sanders, it just creates more confusion on the democratic side if the nonnominee is debating the republican nominee. so donald trump is playing this very, very cleverly, confusion on the democratic side and shows he's a master when it comes to dealing with the media and the kind of the inner section between media and entertainment. i think it's more likely than not that this might occur now. sandra: i want to open this up to our panelists this morning, but julian, what does this say about hillary clinton? i mean, hillary clinton, we've seen the tape rolled so many times now of her back in 2008 saying somebody running for president should be willing to debate any time anywhere and here she is saying, no, thank. >> well, hillary clinton, there's been enormous number of debates between hillary clinton and bernie sanders. she hasn't shown any shyness in debating but there will be a lot of debates hillary clinton and
6:09 am
donald trump. this is pretty much a side show at this point. i don't think this is all instructive. hillary will be the nominee. sanders -- trump will be the nominee on the republican side and hillary according to most polls is still ahead. >> here is why it's actually something more than this, because if you look at where trump's surges come is millennials. she's alianateed. >> sandra: let me get this, abc news showed a 36% swing with millennial voters. trump trailed back in march but
6:10 am
now trails clinton by 3%, jack otter, that's a huge move. >> the question is can hillary turn bernie to become her advocate and her supporter, then it could be a win for her. on the other hand it could looked like a presidential race between donald trump and bernie sanders, both are far more popular with millennials, does trump win bernie supporters or does bernie win trump supporters. sandra: far more people would watch that debate than democratic debate. i think it seems a little bit on purpose the democratic debates were scheduled. hillary is not a good debater whatsoever. dagen: bernie said the country is sick of your damn emails. he gave up his best shot at this. and again, this has reached a boiling point for her with the inspector general's report.
6:11 am
he can maybe land blows. >> he's a policy guy. he cares about free college for all and all this stuff. dagen: if you're running for nomination, you to care about everything. you have to care about -- sandra: you know where there was a good debate right here at mornings with maria. good to have you. tornadoes fast and furious, we have details on one twister that stayed on the ground for 90 minutes, we are told. plus after charlie sheen, latest celebrity to try to profit from the emoji craze emojis. we will explain how they bring in big bucks for local communities marie, you have prediabetes.

we do see markets trending higher, it's been a good couple of weeks, month, that is is. dow jones 13 points right now, s&p 1, nasdaq up 9. nasdaq futures leading the way as we head toward the opening bell a few hours from now. we are also waiting on comments from fed chair janet yellen later today. that could potentially be a market mover. getting a check on oil this morning, oil pulling back after touching $50 yesterday. we are looking just below there at 49 and change down about 1% this morning. president obama arriving in hiroshima, japan earlier this morning honoring the memory of 140,000 that were killed on the morning of august 6th, 1945, he is the first sitting u.s. president in history to visit the city since the nuclear bombs fell at the end of world war ii. the president delivering remarks at the city's memorial site moments ago. >> we must change our mind set about war itself to prevent
6:33 am
conflicts through diplomacy and strive to end complex after they've begun, to see out grow ing dependence as a cause of peaceful cooperation and not violent competition. sandra: it's not just morning's remarks making questions, questions over donald trump and the race for the white house. >> they are rattled mind and for good reason. there's a lot of the proposals that he's made display either ignorance of world affairs or a cavalier attitude. sandra: donald trump responding saying he would have better international relationship as president. >> when you rattle someone that's good because many of the world as you know, many of the
6:34 am
countries in our world, our beautiful world have been absolutely abusing us and taking advantage of us. they shouldn't be airing where he's airing. sandra: good to have you. >> thank you. >> first of all, your take on the president's remarks on donald trump and donald trump's response. the president saying that world leaders are rattled by the presumptive gop nominee. >> i think it would be good for president obama to try to stay above this fray. let's face it, well, it's always interest to go see what other leaders think about our country, americans have to make their own decisions and i don't think that we can be influenced by what people in other countries think about who we choose as leaders. that's what sovereignty is all about and i think the american people need to reserve to
6:35 am
themselves the vote without any influence from any other government. sandra: look, you heard in response to his words including rattled these world leaders and donald trump and many of his supporters stepping up for him and saying, hey, it's about time the world leaders are rattled by a u.s. leader. that being said, we have been looking at images of the historic visit by president obama to hiroshima this morning. this part of it is pan-asian tour. do you see this as an apology? >> you know, let's face it. there's historical questions about whether the atomic bomb ever needed to be dropped. i mean, our military experts that weighed in early on and raised questions about u.s. needed to drop that bomb to win the war. you know, i raised those questions in congress. i think it's important that president obama is in japan. i think it's important that he has laid a reef in con mem ration -- conmemorate those who
6:36 am
died. yes, we fought japan in the war. nations have to move on and have to come to some form of peaceful of these historical events and in this one when i'm skeptical of president obama's international policy, i think it's important move that he made and i certainly support him on it. sandra: jack otter is here with a question. >> is it possible to draw any lessons of current diplomacy in hiroshima jordanians the nadzies, you see the japanese and in both of those cases we cut off the head of the beast, whether it be hitler or the military, we are ready to move on and a much better would to it.
6:37 am
in terrorist, you cut off the head and a new one grows in its place, anything we can learn about today's warfare from that experience? >> first of all, diplomacy is a way to resolve issues. we know that some of the war that is the united states has chosen to get into in the last few years have not been very wise. it's particularly true in the nuclear age. so when we look at the threat of terrorism today, which we have to deal with, the way to do it is to get the nations of the world together and agree as to how to do it and be care thafl we don't have nations like saudi arabia funding jihadists and other countries in the region to help create the terrorist activities which we are trying to defend.
6:38 am
dagen: we have a leader of the country that won't call the enemy by the name and that's radical islamic terrorism. that's the problem. >> the administration's policy have not always been coherent with respect to the middle east and the broader region, that's because of foreign policy decisions that have been made in concert with saudi arabia, qatar, turkey, with people who are moving an agenda for a radical group, that's a problem and, you know, the administration has gone astray, however, with the president's remarks today i think he's realizing some of the limits of encouraging countries to fund jihadist activities. it always blows back on the united states. you know, this is about time that we start paying attention
6:39 am
to matters here at home. we can't solve problems all over the world, we shouldn't be for a fights with sunnis and shias. sandra: good to have you. have a nice weekend. >> thank you. sandra: all right. coming up. one of the most highly anticipated films of the summer and we have a clip you can't see anywhere else. it's exclusive. a sneak peak at independence day resurgence, next. big business of air shows this memorial day weekend. keep it right here on fox busins

6:48 am
how is he going to win? >> to hand in what she says are the record to is a commentary on what she's done throughout the career. >> it's cheaper to buy a 30-dollar robotic arm than an employee making $15 an hour bagging french fries, it's nonsense. maria: once you install aflac, the duck, the business doubles.

[laughter] sandra: we have a can't-miss lineup for you. former presidential candidate dr. ben carson will be here. former u.s. embassador to united nations john bolton and ceo and president david. you don't want to miss that lineup. memorial day weekend is upon us and with it comes a major travel headache as millions of americans hit the road to celebrate the holiday. >> i'm scared. sandra: jeff flock is standing by, no worries.
7:03 am
he's add midway to tell us it's all going to be just fine. jeff: there are lines, of course, the folks checking luggage in but i can report to you at this hour the lines are not at tsa and, of course, that's where all the eyeballs are to come in the main terminal here at midway, if you see the line at southwest, that's not so bad checking in this morning. you know, this summer has -- the lead up to summer has been plagued by all sorts of lines. the tsa definitely under fire. at this hour, as this early morning hour time that you sometimes do get a lot of lines, dutch, come over here and maybe we can get a sandra a look, overlook at tsa folks. this is a time where it backs up. we had a couple of weeks ago an all-time record line. did i find you? he's got me way over there. this is where they would line up for the tsa and people blowing right through, not a problem.
7:04 am
we will be back next hour and see if there's any change to it but so far so good in your hometown. sandra: jeff flock, thank you from midway airport where the lines are not that long yet. we will see. all right, jeff, thank you. tell dutch, hi, for me. that's the camera operator. dagen: i thought it was one of the tsa agents because you fly so much out of chicago. sandra: donald trump reaching the number of delegates to secure nomination for president. as of yesterday, trump has 1239 delegates, he's surpassed that magic 1237 number need today clinch the nomination, the nominee making the push for female voters saying that he would rather have the women vote. >> we want men. [cheers and applause] >> you know, i don't know if you heard but i have one of the
7:05 am
highest poll numbers ever recorded with men and i would swap it for the women right now. i want to women, to hell with the men, right men? sandra: this comes after new reports saying donald trump is unlikely to pick a vp as running mate. democratic strategist julie, come on, this is the all-star lineup up here. borus -- >> fun debate. sandra: okay, fun debate. it is that. here donald trump, cat snickering a little bit. i've got the male vote, i want the women. >> you have over five months of the election and the key point of the campaign, we are past the primary, obviously. two months ago are saying if
7:06 am
he's going to get the 1237. so five months and the economy, immigration, national security, foreign policy, all those points are attract i have to women and the women will call behind donald trump. sandra: will he be effective in pushing for the women vote? >> democrats have gotten the women's share of the vote consistently since 1984 or 1992 but the problem for trump is that he's leading among men by single digits but really getting tramped by women. he has to bring 3 million more men into the process to vote in november and also ensure that no more women come out to vote in order for him to win. that's almost an impossible task right now. >> hillary has a bigger problem with men than he does with women. >> most important state by
7:07 am
state. you look at the quinnipiac poll. if you talk about nationally, the poll is different. certainly polls, he again has a much bigger lead with men. that's the general poll. >> let's talk about legitimate polls. the ones that predicted the last time around and consistent, as we know some polls are not as predictive as others. he's trying not to go so far to unify republican woman and he goes after susana martínez, what does that say to women and latino women? dagen: the polls are one thing, at the end of the day how many people from either party come out to vote. the enthusiasm among republican
7:08 am
voters is greater than that of among the democratic voters at this point because -- so doesn't that influence who -- >> of course. >> to some extent. don't forget she has coleft the coalition around her. he had not -- >> obama was winning at this point. >> no he wasn't. >> yeah, he was. sandra: trump slamming hillary clinton's foreign policy saying she's more likely to go to war. >> the hillary clinton foreign policy legacy is absolute total chaos. i think she would be much more likely to go to war. i think that i will be known as a tougher person than ever but i think that people aren't going to mess with me. sandra: she try today call him dangerous, donald.
7:09 am
he's throwing it right back on her face. >> he could, he was potentially to saudi arabia, the biggest exporter of terrorism around the world going nuclear. why not? let them go nuclear. saudi arabia, that's chilling to me so whether we go to war or saudi arabia begins a nuclear war, that's insane. >> democrat president barack obama bowed to the saudi arabia. >> george bush held hands with the saudi arabia king. >> a terrible record as secretary of state plus her foundation taking money from kuwait, all kinds of regimes, so her background on it is absolutely off and the voters are seeing it. >> putting our security at risk for money. >> right. and saying that the foundation was not going to take that money from foreign companies while secretary of state but having to
7:10 am
restate four years of tax returns because they're taken over 20 million from foreign governments through the foundation. again, let's go back to her record as secretary of state, china, russia, libya, you look all over the world, middle east, we are much worse after secretary of state than before. >> but look at what you're talking about, you're talking about taking foundation money and i'm saying he's open to saudi arabia going nuclear. you're talking about a -- excuse me, gop nominee that vladimir putin is the cat's miow. >> she absolutely bungled it to get terrible attempt to be friendly with russians and she failed. dagen: difference between a statement that donald trump made which he can backtrack of and you put him on a debate stage, you're debating fact, well, i changed my mind.
7:11 am
>> what is he standing there? sandra: he has, indeed, clinch it had nomination. [laughter] >> she hasn't been able to do it yet. sandra: this is going to continue well in the commercial break. straight ahead your memorial day barbecue more perfect now that beef prices are hitting new lows, we have the details on that. later it may actually be too late for justin bieber to say sorry. pop star saying that the bieb stole vocal for hit song and is suing. keep it right here in the fox business network.

7:32 am
others it's not. but what happened here? >> sure, so basically i had a trip out to visit some family on a vacation and couple of days before, i got what essentially was just a crazy cold. [laughter] and it knocked me out so i had to cancel the trip and when i went to rebook i called the airline and said i want to change my ticket i know there's a fee to change ticket is there any way to waive that and person on the phone said try contacting customer service and so she suggested i e-mail them and i saw a mailing drays and sends them a letter it make it more of an impact, and once i got going i turned letter into something clever and funny included photos of the family i was supposed to visit and low and behold i heard back with a really positive response. >> so how did they refund the money contact you first and say they would be doing this or see the money reappear on your credit card? >> so i got an e-mail which was most shocking part of it all a. i sent a snail mail better and
7:33 am
opened up my e-mail couple of weeks later and had a equally witty response. >> let's show an excerpt from that letter you are started by saying, quote, dear american airlines customer service staff member. sounds like -- i write to you with hope that you might take mercy on me and afford a little sympathy for this flier that has taken quite ill and had to postpone his trip to see his beloved niece. that's a happy ending. >> he's a hero when people are coughing on the plane and sneezing it makes me afraid it's coming back and all other. the man is a treasure. i was seated next to a man on a delta airlines flight who had an open staph infection all over his body, leg that was viz isable and they let his board the plane and i jumped out of my seat, stopped the plane, didn't let it leave and made them remove him from the plane.
7:34 am
>> good. >> delay here -- the plane delayed for an u hour but again to oust this point airline should encourage people not to fly if they don't feel well an they did this by refunding his money. >> wonder how many -- not feeling well l. >> like i was sick. i got delta to do it they let me, you know, rebook and not charge me a fee. airlines will help you out. >> by the way you signed off alex frequent flyer, brother, uncle formerly sick person currently healthy. treasure -- add that to the list.

7:41 am
to show hard core data that cell phone use can cause cancer. >> but the type of radio frequency energy that is used for cell phone is like a microwave like the light that we see. it's not enough to break down chemical dna to cause cancer -- doctor this was performed on ratsz and findings causing concern. what do you make of it? >> i don't think evidence discussion to cause any concern really. something is mostly based on radio frequency waves can cause some damage. u but the damage is mostly heat. it's not -- radiation and if you look at all a of the studies about that done in the world it's no different evidence that had it causes brain tumors which is the main concern. >> so i guess --
7:42 am
if you look at database national cancer followers epidemiology and result database since 19 92 in incident in increase of brain tumors to cell phones during that time. >> we don't have a period of time long enough to make a conclusion. >> cell phones have been around for 25, 30 years not like when you get a x-ray or o tanning bed, it's a low frequently, low frequency radio waves and moderation is the key. don't be on your phone all day long. eating french fries is more -- >> from a personal perspective i had a close family member who died of a grade four four months from deetion to death and there's more instances that you hear about, very famous people like senator ted kennedy for example. so there's a no increase in these tumors and also what
7:43 am
causes them then? >> no. it suspect done, and we have 120 cases of near blastoma but no increase. there was a study years ago that thought of an increase from exposure to chemicals, and when they looked at it, it really was an example of the use of new diagnostic techniques opposed to those effects. i think you can't make assumption and i have no idea how often kennedy used a cell phone. but i doubt that had anything to do with it. >> so -- i know that another area of concern here is pregnant women always really concerned because where do a lot of us wear our cell phones, on our head. is there any increase concern there?
7:44 am
>> prosecuting women who smoke and drink who will who aren't taking their prenatal vitamin. evidence that shows it is insufficient there's not enough evidence to show that there's a direct correlation between cancer causing tumors and cell phone use. moderation. >> also i want to get yours -- this deadly superstrain of e. coli first appearance in the us. what is the threat here? >> the real danger, that infection that was reported was not lethal. but the real danger is that this -- gene can be transferred to bacteria, and that we haven't seen that so far. this is the fest report but plenty of examples of what we call superbugs of resis at that particular time to every antibiotic and a problem in this country so we need more antibiotics developed by the pharmaceutical industry. but as far as we know that's one case at the moment.
7:45 am
>> dr. devito are you aware of to what extent are companies working on this? >> yeah, working on it. you know, it's not easy to develop drugs. and in this country we don't make it very easy so we can use a little bit more flexibility in getting drugs to the market. and developing antibiotic is not my field but i can tell you in the cancer field, it's a very difficult problem to get drugs into the market with our current regulatory environment. : creating a huge problem in this country a lot of patients think i have a cold, i'm sick andty need an antibiotic but they don't treat viruses so it's important for health care providers to educate patients do this treatment versus antibiotics and then determine if you need an antibiotic that plays huge role in antibiotic resistance. >> i want to ask you a question about the drug approval out of
7:46 am
the fda does a new president mac a difference in how the fda operates like could we hope like attitude in terms of drug approval could change? >> i don't know. usually when a new president can do is if appoint a new commissioner with the food and drug administration i don't think it's like lie to make a big difference and usually since commissioner is presidential pundit that has a stagnant six-year term so it has a little effect because it's the mid-leaflet staff of the fda that really interpret the regulation. so i don't anticipate that. but if the president would make it a priority to mention, discuss, you know, the problem, and then ask for accelerated
7:47 am
drug approval it would affect attitude . >> dr. devito thank you for that breaking news this morning. good to have you. coming up we're taking you to the air to celebrate our military heros and break down the big business of air shows. for memorial weekend we have a treat for if you. a ship wreck found underground by construction workers in boston. we'll show you those images coming up. keep it right here on fox business. good morning. was just a bottle.

7:52 am
you can see the jet team over there flying l39 and waiting for that from american air museumed to a fly by just for this show. but more about that jet team because i actually went flying with them in the reno air races back in the fall. they're an tin credible civilian jet team. they're actually world largest civilian jet team an they perform aerobatics they do incredible work and if you turn camera right now there's an air show of our own. l39 coming by this is going about i don't know -- two to 300 miles per hour. wow. see it go that is scott buster climbing i met him bever he had took off an air force f-16 pilot who grew up here in the new york city area flying for the american air power museum in that l39 a czech built russian trainer.

7:54 am
these aircraft heading out into the city is right now showing off our ship is and aicialght. aircraft so i miss it but i love my job here. >> i wonder when i see air shows it is important to kind of advertise and put on display and brag about our air power? do you see it that way? >> you know what, that's a great question not only is it important for the young people to learn about the military actually we're going to turn camera so you can see l39 coming in again. here it comes. doing a low pass figure down. but sandra i want to talk about the economic impact of the community. you know, i spoke with the gentleman who actually created this air show. and he said this will bring in about 16 million dollars to local communities so it's free. it's a wonderful opportunity for families and kids. but it also brings in a lot of money when you think about vender, hotel, food and beverages all of the services. all of the services that go along with air shows sandra. esmghts what's the number one quality that you think you have
7:55 am
to have to fly a plane like this? >> physical mental -- >> wow. i'm serious but you have to have the perfect vision, physical makeup, but what does it take? >> sandra i think it really just comes down to being able to make quick decisions, able to stay calm under pressure because you know what you're flying an airplane, and everything is going well that's great. but when you have an emergency it's when something goes wrong that you need to react quickly, an so it takes a lot of good hand eye coordination and monkey skills but it takes calm under pressure and ability to make decisions quickly. there's no pushing pause in jet. >> we're proud to call you our own. leah gabriel thank you. say thank you to them for the fly byes that was impressive. just fur fox business nec hour former republican candidate ben carson joins this show to weigh in on donald trump securing the 1238 delegates at 1239 right now.

8:03 am
that's largely because of tsa efforts. take a looks it's a little hard to see but there's a k-9 team at work here. if you see the dog, essentially what happens if you go through and you're sniffed by k-9 and they don't alert on you, it gives tsa the opportunity to put you through the more expedited precheck line and they did what was called manage exclusion or for a while when they were just at random taking people. they stopped doing that. that's one of the reasons we have a big line. now, with the dog team it is enables them to again put people through the precheck even if you are not precheck so that moves along faster. so all good here so far . at mid-way, on this kickoff to the summer travel sb, 38 million people they say are going to be traveling. but a few of them coming through mid-way. >> good news lines are not bad but e jeff flock thank you.

now to the campaign trail, donald trump finally hitting that magic number now it's over 12,037 delegates amount needed to secure the republican nomination. joining us is former presidential candidate dr. ben carson is here. dr. carson good to have you here this morning. >> thank you had. good to be here. >> we are at a important big moment in the course of this campaign. what do you make of donald trump's stance as it stands today? he's now topped that 1237 and 1239 dell delegates? >> it says a lot about the wisdom of the american people. you know, a lot of people -- say this or that or o the other. but the american people have been able to analyze and they recognize we have two choices. we have the choice of continuing along the progressive ideology more government intervention
8:05 am
more political correctness of weakening military and stable of our economy or o move to a more traditional sense of personal responsibility, understanding what our fiscal responsibilities are. to those coming behind us strengthening our military in order to ensure our safety and safety of the world. much less likely to result in conflict. >> clearly making the case for donald trump as you have been, and you the been or o are you still heading up the search for his vp ticket? >> no i never headed up. i gave my suggestions. >> are you still advising him on that? [inaudible] >> we still have an opportunity to talk. but it's about a lot more than a vice presidential pick. we're talking about issues that will result in the salvation of this nation.
8:06 am
these are big issues, and you know, i like many others very concerned with what's happening to our country. and i think donald trump represents the best possibility we have of reversing the course. >> and just correctly we've been hearing -- president obama yesterday said that he's been speaking with world leaders who are rattled by the prospect of donald trump running this country. what do you make of that? >> well, first of all, i seriously doubt that they're rattled, but if they are rattled, they're probably rattled because they've been listening to propaganda as so many people have been, and when they have an opportunity to actually sit down and discuss things with donald trump, with his secretary of state with other diplomatic personnel
8:07 am
they're going to understand it is logical. it's going to be fair. we're not going to be trying to take advantage of them but we don't want them taking advantage of us either. so i think it will actually make for a more peaceful situation in the world. >> dr. carson has a question. >> one of correspondents speaking to chinese officials they were rattled by a 45% tariff but marco rubio brought that up. is that a policy that donald trump would plan to enforce? >> well, you know, i think you're going to see, you know, a lot of different things put on the table. these things will be hashed out. they will be analyzed by people who are real experts and then rational discussions will be made about what should be implemented whether a tariff is necessary or a better way to do it.
8:08 am
all of that will be hashed it out in a very logical way. >> dr. carson do you think that donald trump will debate bernie sanders? i mean put some odds on that. >> i tell you it will be a wonderful thing. i would love to see such a debate because it would help to crystallize for the american people the difference between traditional american values and socialism. and i think a lot of young people don't really know what socialism is is. they think it's coming together and caring about other people when they find out what it's really about, i think they might change their mind. >> reports that some thoughted it to do with social media i digress her friends thinks it's social media. [laughter] that being said dr. carson despite bashing donald trump on the campaign trail former candidate senator marco rubio says he will attend the national republic convention and willing to speak on trump's behalf. your reaction to that, sir.
8:09 am
>> well, you know, i'm proud that marco rubio has come to that conclusion, and i think others will come to that conclusion because they have to understand you have two choices here. you have donald trump and you've got hillary clinton. you've got continuation of progressive lism and where's that leading us? as a nation -- we don't know who's a man or woman anymore. are you kidding me? we're going completely off the deep end. other nations must be looking at us and having a belly laugh but must be also worried that leading power in the world is going down this path of nonsense. so -- i would love to see a debate like that because it would put it right out front. >> all right. dr. ben carson good to have you this morning, sir. >> always good to be with you. >> all right, coming up a trail of destruction, we have the

8:32 am
mediocre, not good. mediocre long-term, which is around a 2% rate. ever since the great recession, the average of the first quarter growth has been .7. the average overall has been about 2.6. i think around .2-- i mean, 2 right now. dagen: and first time that 3% growth hasn't happened since the great depression. sandra: president obama paying respects who those to died at hiroshima. he's the first sitting president to visit the city. kevin, good morning. >> sandra, good day to you, indeed an emotional and powerful day for president obama. and he know, he did not apologize for america's use of the atomic bomb back in 1945 to effectively draw to an end world war ii. he did, however, today in his remarks call on the world to have a moral awakening and to have the courage to end their
8:33 am
use, although he did acknowledge wouldn't happen in his lifetime. marking the first and only nuclear bombing, he laid a wreath at the hiroshima peace memorial. marking august 6th, 1945 when at least 140,000 people died at hiroshima and a couple of days later, another 74,000 perished in a bombing in nagasaki. >> we must have the courage to escape a world of fear and pursue without them. >> the president spoke to a number of survivors following his address, exchanging hand shakes and even hugs with the women and men who 71 years old still live with the physical and mental scars from that fateful day. the president also, in making hess way here to this region, spent time with american service personnel. as you're probably aware there are close to 50,000 serving in
8:34 am
japan and his remarks to them, the president thanked them for dedication and ver-- service to this country. and the president is expected to land sometime late tonight after a very long flight. back to you, sandra. sandra: all right, kefrp, thank you for that. joining me now is former u.s. ambassador to the united nations, john bolten, along with jillian turner. ambassador bolten, i'll start with you, first. in this historic visit of president obama and hiroshima, he called on nations to escape the logic of fear and reduce stock piles of nuclear weapons. what did you make of his visit and his words here? >> well, i don't object to an american president visiting hiroshima. it would come sooner or later. i don't think we have anything to be ashamed about from reflecting on harry truman's decision to use the atomic bomb against japan.
8:35 am
i think obama's speech was, you ever who, consistent with his apology tour across his seven and a half years of office. i don't think he's ever actually said in any of these occasions i apologize. it's always more indirect and it was indirect here today when he said that the scientific revolution that gave us the atom bomb should have sparked a moral resolution as well. barack obama, of course, is smart enough to know there should be a moral revolution. harry truman, i don't think quite measures up to the president obama standards and that's the implicit criticism that president obama didn't bother to explain what he would have done as an alternative to truman's decision. sandra: joanna, akd bolton -- ambassador bolton said that. >> i applaud the decision to go
8:36 am
to hiroshima. we can debate back and forth the message, is it appropriate? on a tactical level, this is a reward to japanese prime minister abe for the military to military relationship with the united states on a strategic level. this was president obama reaffirming his commitment to nuclear nonproliferation around the world. i think that's the strength of the trip here. so, whether there is an implicit apology or not. we can argue all sides of the coin. the central tenet here, nuclear nonproliferation as a cornerstone of his policy is important. sandra: ambassador bolton, jack otter from barons is here. >> for you, ambassador, and jillian as well. can you speak to the role of japan in the greater asian picture right now? obviously, a lot going on with china, korea breaking news, just hacked into more banks or we're deciding that they were responsible for some hacks. we need the japanese and yet, there's an issue with the american servicemen and how
8:37 am
they're treating some of their japanese hosts. so this is a crucial alliance in japan. does this help it? >> well, i think it helps with some in japan. but let's be clear. the alliance has existed since 1945 because of the respective needs on both sides. and it continues as the threat from china and the south china sea and the east china sea expands, as the north korea nuclear threat continues. that's what the basis of the alliance is. there are a lot of difficult things to negotiate, such as the base on okinawa and the recent incident there, but fundamentally, this is a strong alliance and it should continue to be a strong alliance. sandra: jillian? >> absolutely agree. this is a good boost for japan, but i think more importantly, this is really a hedge against north korea's nuclear ambitions and this is a way to rally neighboring countries in the region. we're talking china, japan,
8:38 am
vietnam, south korea to really bolster these efforts in the region. so i think from that perspective, this trip was also smart. dagen: can i quickly, ambassador bolton, do you think that anybody, particularly veterans in this country, would be bothered by the timing of this visit, given that it's our memorial day and it was japan's becoming of pearl harbor that dragged us into world war ii in the first place? do you think that's legitimate? >> i think it's legitimate? look, this goes to the other-worldly nature of obama's comments. in 1945, truman faced a very difficult decision. winston churchill looking at the end of the war in europe and thinking about what it would require for america to invade and conquer the japanese home island said in a phrase, none of you should ever forget it would require infusions of american blood. what harry truman did in the
8:39 am
ordering of the dropping of the atomic bomb was not just militarily correct, but morally correct. had ronald reagan been the first president to go to hiroshima, he would have made that point. sandra: good to have you here and especially this weekend and memorial day where we remember and honor those who fought and died for this country. thank you, ambassador bolton and jillian turner. many americans are getting ready for the weekend. avoid the tsa failed strategy and hit the road for your vacation. stuart varney will be joining us next. stay tuned. >> hey, welcome back to another tennis channel french open court report for fox business. it was springtime in paris on day five of roland garros and
