have closed in record territory. all three have soared in 2017 and certainly since the election of president trump. we saw records also boeing, caterpillar, 3m, broke out into record all-time highs, and other notables. american express and procter & gamble, looking at the gun makers, those right in the last half hour of trading to be specific, they've come off the earlier highs, american outdoor brands, sturm ruger and ammunition, all those surged on the report that the trump administration is preparing to ease export rules for firearms. not only just small firearms but assault rifles, ammunition and going to move it from the state department which handles military weapons over to the commerce department. this is for nonmilitary-type weapons and boost sales for our gun makers at home. take a look at toy manufacturers. hasbro and mattel both jumped. that is because, here's the --
4:03 pm
wait for, it toys "r" us filed for bankruptcy, they have money and financing the toys for the holidays, they have a few fwoil work with before the holiday season, back to you. melissa: thank you. david: not tired of all this winning on on wall street, take a listen. >> the stock market is at an all-time high. a record. unemployment is at its lowest level in 16 years. david: let's bring in today's market panel, a fox news contributor, liz peek from the fiscal times. gary, the market wasn't spooked by anything the president said unlike democratic critics, i wonder if traders liked what he said? . >> i don't think they mind it. look, when you defend your country, i actually think it's a good thing. i was a fan of the speech. a couple things i would have left out. the markets in real good shape here. i watched semiconductors and i watched financials closely,
4:04 pm
semiconductors. another yearly high, and the financials are starting to go en fuego again, when that's happening, the market is not going down. since the election, the market started lifting off bigtime from the election and there is potential. but we've got to get things done going forward. david: liz, one of the things is taxes, liz, i think whenever the president sounds strong and presidential, if you will, that it helps his case, it helps bargaining position when it comes to taxes. >> i totally agree, with the storm enduring about all the others confronting congress, the truth is the white house is totally committed to tax reform. that's what they're talking about, out traveling the country talking about and promoting. i've seen absolutely no backing down from that, and whatever kind of deal that trump will do on the budget or anything else, this remains priority number one for the white house, and
4:05 pm
that's what investors want to see. david: gary and liz, thank you very much, melissa? >> we meet at a time of both immense promise and great peril. the united states has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy north korea. we will fight together, sacrifice together and stand together for peace. melissa: the entire world watching as president trump took the united nations stage earlier today to express unity and to address what america is seeking to accomplish with the help of our partners from around the world. let's go to adam shapiro with some reaction to the president's speech. i heard some people say it's the best speech he's given. others saying he threatened to blow north korea off the map. very different responses. reporter: yeah, they were
4:06 pm
different response, let me start with response from senator dianne feinstein from california. u.s. senator in the united states. she said, quote, the goals of the united nations are to foster peace and promote global cooperation, the president used it as a stage to threaten war. then you get a response from senator lindy graham, from south carolina, lindsey graham wouldn't say word friend of the president, he's often critical of the president. here's what graham said -- . reporter: remember the president focus on several issue, not only north korea but iran's destabilizing of the middle east. because the president is ready to take on iran as well. president will be meeting with amir from qatar taking place right now, and then a dinner tonight at 7:00, hosted by melania trump, the first lady,
4:07 pm
but the president is expected to make remarks at the dinner, back to you. melissa: thank you so much, adam. here to react is ambassador stuart holiday, former ambassador for special political affairs at the u.n. sir, thank you for joining us. what was your take? >> i thought it was pretty consistent with president trump's rhetoric, but the u.n. isn't really accustomed to that level of, you know, bellicoseness from an american president at the u.n., but i think he laid a marker down, it was clear, the u.n. was created to avert war, if people think of the consequences of a war on the korean peninsula, they might try to step up and prevent one from happening. melissa: so you thought it was bellicose? it sounds like you weren't fond of the speech, quite a departure from ambassador john bolton who thought it was the best speech he's heard trump do, he left no stone unturned here, went through and addressed so many of the complaints that everyone around the world had about the u.n.
4:08 pm
for example, you know, putting saudi arabia, you know, on the council for women's rights, there are so many outrageous things that go on in the u.n. and normally seems like people congratulate each other and all they do is rebuke israel. >> exactly. i meant this is how it was going to be perceived in the room, not they didn't think it was a solid speech. i think it was. and i think it was clear, it was very focused and really set a bright line between the civilized world, you know, the community of nations and some of the rogue states that we need to step up and prevent from getting nuclear weapons. melissa: how odd was it that some of the rogue states were sitting there listening to it. i was watching the tight camera shot of the representatives, you know, whether it was iran or, you know, north korea hurried an underling to listen so there wouldn't be anyone of note sitting in the audience to listen to this. what did you think of that part? >> that's part of the theater
4:09 pm
of the general assembly. the north korean ambassador did leave, but that's happened before, but it's part of the unique nature of the general assembly where have you this sort of spectacle if you will, of the countries watching looking at the reactions, obviously, netanyahu very pleased, others more concerned but that's part of the action at the u.n. >> it seemed like maybe the point was to concern those who are aiding or appeasing north korea. some would say that the remark that's become the headline out of this about, you know, basically wiping north korea off the map if they don't stop their nuclear program was indo china. is that possible? >> i think so, let's be clear, he was talking about taking action on north korea if our allies of the united states were continued to be threatened, and that is a very -- so it's taken a little out of context. i think it's aimed at china. china's key for cutting off the
4:10 pm
spigot sustaining the regime, they're starting to take it seriously but a little more road to go on for the chinese. melissa: yeah, what downing is the outcome of this? what do you think the impact is? >> he's going to have bilateral meetings, he already has, with the chinese, setting out a time frame and framework for them to take more action and to in effect try to cripple the north korean economy. they have been reluctant to do so, if they hear this language again, this bright line language, they're going to be concerned, they don't want war on the doorstep either. melissa: and to clarify as you said about that, if it is forced to defend itself or allies, we will have no choice but to destroy north korea, you are right to point that out. thank you, ambassador, appreciate your time. >> thank you. david: what i loved is the body language when they switched to the audience, you could tell immediately who loved it, and who hated it. it was very clear. melissa: interesting. david: new comments from president trump coming into us at any moment as he meets with
4:11 pm
the amir of qatar. we'll bring you that. melissa: a bombshell report claims former trump adviser paul manafort was wiretapped during and after the campaign. judge andrew napolitano will tell us what it means. >> meanwhile, puerto rico is bracing for a direct hit from hurricane maria, a massive category 5 storm. the governor warning this could devastate most of the island. he's going to be joining us live next.. >> it's like bearing down the barrel of a shotgun, it's a category 5 hurricane imminent catastrophe had if this does make landfall in puerto rico. people here are preparing for the worst. so what else is new? how's your mother? umm..she's doing good. she needs more care though. she wants to stay in her house. i don't know even where to start with that. first, let's take a look at your financial plan

. >> there's this huge incident down south in mexico where a massive magnitude 7.1 earthquake is rocking that country. the president tweeting moments ago, quote, god bless the people of mexico city, we are with you and we will be there for you. we wish them the very best. melissa: so hurricane maria has already blown through the islands of dominica and guadeloupe, the category 5 storm is bringing with what the national weather service is calling the extreme threat to life and property. the u.s. virgin islands and puerto rico can expect winds up to 160 miles per hour, areas in maria's path are, of course, still dealing with the devastation of hurricane irma. brought to the region earlier this month. david: it's just awful. one area realing from the aftermath of hurricane irma and bracing for what to come is
4:16 pm
puerto rico. national hurricane center said the area should prepare for devastating destruction and catastrophic flooding. hurricane maria is expected to make landfall tomorrow. joining me from san juan, puerto rico governor ricardo rocio. governor, our very best wishes and prayers go out to you. are you preparing for a cat 5 hurricane hit, and if so, how? >> well, we prepare as best as we can. since our administration started about nine months ago, we made sure we had all the protocols in place, established a working group that allowed us to work effectively during irma, and so much so we were able to become a platform to help other u.s. citizens stranded in the more affected islands. but certainly talking about a hurricane, the forces of which we've never seen in puerto rico, category 5, a slow hurricane as well, we'll be feeling the brunt of it for a while. it's going bring a lot of rain
4:17 pm
and, of course, flooding is always dangerous. our main focus is to make sure people go through one of our shelters to find a safe haven and weather the storm. the next 72 hours are critical, and right after that start the rebuilding process. david: where do you send people? i know puerto rico, there are higher spots, i'm wondering a similar thing that could happen in florida where people evacuated to areas that eventually hit by the changing motion of the storm? >> right, well the whole island is going to be hit, so there isn't nowhere to go. if you are running away from the hurricane winds, what there is safe shelter. we have concrete built schools. we have certain convention centers and so forth that allow us to have 500 shelters all along the island. those have worked in the past, and we know they will work today, and what we're hoping and working for is to make
4:18 pm
people find their way from the flooded areas, from areas that have seen some turmoil in the past, make sure we can get them to higher ground and safer place, in a concrete building. david: now, the president was instrumental in sending out the navy and the coast guard to help in the aftermath of hurricane irma. i'm wondering before you get the hit from maria, if you've been receiving packages from the military? >> well, we were, and i'd like to thank the period for his immediate action both in irma and right now in maria. he bid off an emergency declaration for puerto rico that allows us to eccute protocols and have better preparationment the fema team is phenomenal, brock long and secretary price have been
4:19 pm
working, grateful for puerto rico, we're in the middle of our recovery process. we have received some of the packages, they will be used in preparation and post storm. the focus is make sure people are safe, making sure people get to the shelters and we're about a couple hours away from receiving the most devastating storm in the modern history of puerto rico. >> i know you know this, our audience might not, the last cat 5 to hit puerto rico was 1928, and this storm right now appears to be stronger. it is historic, but prayers and best wishes go out to you, governor, thank you so much. >> thank you so much. david: thank you very much for being with us. governor of puerto rico. melissa? melissa: adobe out with results, a new quarterly record of 26% year-over-year. driven by cloud-based subscription offerings, despite that shares down slightly after
4:20 pm
hours. david: well, as we heard from the governor of puerto rico, maria threatening the already battered island in the caribbean after hurricane irma. one u.s. citizen saw little to no help from local officials in st. thomas. remember him? what's the situation like there now? we're going to ask him, coming up. plus the battle to repeal obamacare, some republicans are hoping the third time is the charm but congress is running out of time. >> nors on the other side of the aisle should be walking around with a blindfold over their eyes because they don't know what they're voting on. maybe they don't care. liberty mutual stood with me when this guy got a flat tire in the middle of the night. hold on dad... liberty did what? yeah, liberty mutual 24-hour roadside assistance helped him to fix his flat so he could get home safely. my dad says our insurance doesn't have that. don't worry - i know what a lug wrench is, dad.

4:24 pm
blake? reporter: they're going at it with a new bill, new iteration, that is the grand-cassidy bill tries to have the states deal with this in the form of block grants. the white house fully on board with this, david. vice president mike pence flew down here to washington, d.c. to have lunch with republicans on capitol hill to try to persuade them to get behind the bill. senator lindsey graham is spearheading the last second push. >> i'm trying to take the money and power in washington and send it back closer to the patient. state control of health care will work because the people in charge will be accountable to you, unlike obamacare, where the person in charge could give a damn of what you think. reporter: republicans' fail to repeal and replace obamacare earlier this summer and the ability to need only 51 votes in the senate for health care legislation expires at the end
4:25 pm
of mom. three republican nos would sink the measure. already senator rand paul is against the bill, while lisa murkowski, susan collins and john mccain are among the skeptics. can being -- democrats are dug into any attempt of repealing obamacare. >> no matter how many ways they try to dress it up, they try to hide, it it's more dangerous and more reckless than the previous bill that was defeated. simply put, trumpcare is a sham. reporter: david, if republicans in the senate are able to coalesce here in the next few days or week, keep in mind, this would still have to move effort to house for that body to then take it up. lindsey graham reiterated today, he claims he spoke with the house speaker paul ryan who told him that this would pass there. david? david: we shall see, blake,
4:26 pm
thank you very much. good to see you. melissa. melissa: gary colt balm and liz peek are back with us, what's your take? >> this would be tremendous if they got this done, you have the same band of obstructors that you had before. it's a great premise, everyone understands putting more power to the states, always, always local official are more popular than federal officials. the closer you get to home, the more popular you are, why? they are accountable. this makes a lot of sense, unfortunately, there are winners and losers. it has been said from this bill, a winner is texas, a loser is california who cares, we're not going to get votes anyway. melissa: we care about the people. >> we care about the people, in terms of passing it, it's a non-starter. alaska and also arizona. we'll have to see, it would be great if they got it done, and by the way, it's very important

for tax reform. melissa: gary, i was going to bring up tax reform because i always do, and was going to say i hate for them to get remotely distracted. the idea they can walk and chew gum at the same time. we know they can't? >> i just wrote notes down, they cannot walk and chew gum at the same time. melissa: no, you didn't. >> well done, my friend. look, the bottom line is when i heard they were going back to health care, i said are they insane? what it really does come down to and blake said it best, murkowski, collins and mccain. if they're not on board, there is nothing you can do. it's over, it's done, schumer and the democrats are going to go nowhere. if i hear a democrat talk about a health care bill it's not good after saying obamacare is magnificent, i don't know where i'm going to go with that. get to tax reform, come back to this later, this is about votes. if they don't have them, it isn't going anywhere. melissa: not that it's not
4:28 pm
important, it seemed hopeless. we got to go, thanks, guys. david: we've got breaking news on the earnings front, fedex reporting first quarter results, back to nicole. numbers are down after-hours, nicole. reporter: david and melissa, down about 2%, missing on the earnings, not a surprise to folks. we knew the cyberbreach over the summer for tnt express missing the estimates of $3.09. it was the tnt express cyberbreach over the summer, it would have tshl financial impact, it has, they said weakness at fedex ground. the ceo said the first quarter did pose significant operational challenges and not only for the cyberattack but hurricane harvey. for the extraordinary dedication and performance. big picture, this one was a miss across the board, and they lowered the estimates going

we'll bring you more deails as soon as we get them. >> in america, the people govern. the people rule. and the people are sovereign. i was elected not to take power, but to give power to the american people with where it belongs. david: rarely has the united nations heard such a proud defense of american values as it did today for president donald j. trump, description of how we practice and defend our values and how we're often at odds with him is receiving sharp praise and sharp condemnation from politicians, pundits and preachers. here is former arkansas governor mike huckabee, also a fox news contributor. first of all, governor, what an extraordinary contrast with this guy's predecessor, right? >> unbelievable. for eight years we had a president who would go to the united nations and outright apologize for america but always couch his words and the sense of well, we're not trying to be that strong, we don't
4:35 pm
want to overpower everybody, it's a global world and we're equal partners. donald trump says we're america, we're proud of who we are and should be proud of who you are, and he reminded the u.n. why it even exists. i thought it was a masterpiece speech and the brilliance of it was the bluntness of it. david: he took aim specifically at globalism, what the u.n. presents a globalist approach which president obama was fine with, he's not fine with, patriotism and self-determination and the audience, i don't think got it. >> well, i think nay they may have gone the it but couldn't believe their ears that something so dramatically different was coming from the mouth of a u.s. president. several key lines here, when he spoke about what does it mean when we say america first and essentially said every one of you put your own countries first. of course you do. if you don't, you shouldn't be leaders of your own country.
4:36 pm
it was profound, the profundity and the simplicity of his message that was so powerful. david: he had a very clear, nonrelativist vision of what works and doesn't work and used venezuelasa an example, let's play the sound bite of what he said went wrong in venezuela. >> the problem in venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented but that socialism has been faithfully implemented. david: in other words, the better you implement socialism, the worse it is? >> i think it was brilliant. that's one of the great lines of the speech it. reminds me of margaret thatcher's famous line, the problem with socialism, sooner or later you run out of other people's money. we see what socialism did in europe and soviet union, we're kind of seeing what's happening in china. having to become more capitalistic to survive. >> you don't have to leave our borders, we had bernie sanders suggest and democrats are going
4:37 pm
along with him, the best cure for health care system is to socialize it. i think he was actually in that regard reaching outside or inside the u.s. in his suggestion there, no? >> i think he was. his attacks directly on north korea i thought were brilliant. there are people who are condemning him. david: one of those people is senator dianne feinstein, let's play or put up a screen of what he said. the goals of the united nationstor foster peace and promote global cooperation, today the president used it as a stage to threaten war. so she was almost viewing donald trump as the aggressor in this confrontation with north korea. >> what is it that she doesn't understand is it's little kim lighting the candles, firing missiles across japan, firing them to test intercontinental ballistic missiles, that's not trying to prevent war, that's trying to provoke a war.
4:38 pm
david: and puts her in a camp. the people who said something krrl the leaders of iran, the representative of venezuela. the dictatorship in venezuela and now dianne feinstein is in that camp does. she want to be there? >> i don't know that that draft was made after the speech or if it was made before in anticipation of what he would say. but when he said that rocket man is on a suicide mission, that's blunt, that's bold, but there's no doubt to anybody on this planet that he was dead serious in saying we are not going to sit back on the beach have, somebody kick sand in our eyes and you know simply say please, could we move over a few feet before you kick us again? i thought that was, again, a very important moment, and i'm glad he used a very vernacular version of, that rather than saying the leaders of north korea. it was really a message to china. i think as much as it was a message to little kim.
4:39 pm
david: gotta go. one-word answer. do you think, despite critics of it, whatever side you were on viewing this speech, everybody thinks it's the most important speech he made as president, do you agree? >> what made it important, this wasn't at a rally. this was at the united nations, and stared down the people who hated him the most and said it right to their faces, that took guts. david: governor mike huckabee, appreciate it. melissa: bracing for hurricane maria. the monster cat 5 storm taking aim at puerto rico after battering the island of dominica and guadeloupe. the latest on the storm's track is next. >> it is not getting the attention it deserves. bad job they're doing. anything worth pursuing requires knowledge, hard work and a plan. at baird, we approach your wealth management strategy the same way to create a financial plan built to last from generation to generation. we'll listen. we'll talk. we'll plan.

wiretapped former trump campaign manager paul manafort before and after the 2016 presidential election. here now is judge andrew napolitano, fox news senior judicial analyst. and the key question, when president trump tweeted out in march that his campaign was being wiretapped. politifact said it's a false story. cnn dumped on the story, they said it's nonsense. does this vindicate the donald trump tweet in march? >> i think it clearly does. paul manafort was a tenant in trump tower in 2014, and at that time. >> i didn't know that. >> at that point the fbi began surveilling him because tips about his relationships with government officials in the ukraine. then he stays there as one of then mr. donald trump's chief strategist, then stays there as one of mr. donald trump's as his campaign manager, then he's in and out throughout the
4:52 pm
transition. so the issue is not was paul manafort being surveilled. that's a given. the fbi doesn't deny it. the issue is what did they pick up from donald trump? then the issue is what kind of a warrant did they get? if they got a warrant from the fisa court, they can share the information with the west wing of the white house. valerie jarrett and susan rice who admitted getting some of that information. if the warrant is a regular article 3, fourth amendment warrant, blinders on they can't share with anybody, that's criminal information. david: it's obvious that at time that man fort was wiretapped, he was in charge of a good part of the donald trump campaign and must have been some point donald trump called into manafort during those times, one can assume donald trump was being listened to. >> remember, this is not a traditional wiretap, this is electronic surveillance. that means your iphone, which is right, there if we were not on television and having a conversation in the studio and you were the subject of
4:53 pm
electronic surveillance, that would pick up our conversation, though we're not using it as a means to communicate. and e-mails and text messages that paul manafort sent to others in the campaign would be picked up. bottom line is donald trump was correct when he complained about the obama administration surveilling him and i'm waiting for the apologies today, have you heard any? david: no, but it is still unclear the extent to which president obama knew about this, correct? >> it is unclear. david: is there any way we could find that out? >> yes, put susan rice under oath and ask her to whom did she reveal the unmasking. david: is there any chance that could happen? >> yes. david: who would be interviewing her? >> chuck grassley, the chair of the senate judiciary committee, there are others who will interrogate. samantha power, though the ambassador to the u.n., and a
4:54 pm
diplomat, admitted she did unmasking. how did k a diplomat do unmasking? he's not in the intelligence community. susan rice was president obama's national security adviser. she was at least arguably involved with the intelligence community but his ambassador to the u.n.? this is under the service and ready to explode. david: special prosecutor bob mueller looking into a lot of thinks other than russia. people say he's trying get the tax roufrsd donald trump. >> she has them. david: okay, so why shouldn't he be looking into something like this, where a previous administration might be interfering in some way with a party trying run for office? >> i don't know the answer to that, david. but encouraged him on the air to look into it. david: he may be calling you right now. this may be breaking news here. >> this is not him. david: no, but is there any chance that bob mueller would be looking into this or

determined just to get trump? >> i think he has crosshairs on trump, and i think he's going to indict paul manafort and others around the president and try and turn them into government witnesses to have them spill whatever beans they may have about the president does. he go into susan rice? does he go into barack obama? does he go into how general flynn's conversation with ambassador kislyak and transcript of it ended up in the "washington post"? who knows. david: very quick question on sanctuary cities. does the president have the right to deny federal funding to sanctuary cities? it's in legal limbo now? >> answer, no, congress does. when congress amends that statute. they can stop funding to any cities that don't participate in cooperating with i.c.e., but jeff sessions -- david: that means no democrats would vote for that. >> correct. jeff sessions, he's heart's in the right place but can't rewrite the law. david: judge andrew napolitano, thank you so much.
