and thought to have attended a mosque in the area, not far from where he lived where he rented that truck yesterday. cheryl to get to where we started, we have learned he will appear in court tonight, that is important, because i guess is speaks to his well being to some degree, we're told he had minor surgery after being shot by the police officer, from this official that we spoke to on the courthouse he is well enough to be in court. and he will go through the civilian criminal justice system, rather than sent as some speculated to guantanamo bay. that will not happen if he appears in court as expected to. >> connell, interesting, we're learning there will be a press conference from south en district of new york, hopefully we'll get more details. connell mcshane thank you for that live report on this scene. a busy day down in lower

5:08 pm
do you think that program is dangerous, should be at least reevaluated? >> absolutely. there is no reason why we need a diversity visa program. this is an example of what happened, how many other potential terrorist have we brutbrought in with this prograe don't need that kind of diversity. it is important that the president get rid of this program. even if it is by an executive order could if he could do that. we need to get rid of it quickly. >> if that is possible. would be next shoe to drop. this suspect, applied for that program back in 2008, granted a diversey it visa two years later. to be clear this is fourth assailant from uzbekistan to launch an attack within a year according to several reports. the country is well-known
5:09 pm
terrorist hotbed. listen to this. >> uzbekistan in particular, has a history of jihadism. there is an organization that was founded years ago, imu, islamic movement of uzbekistan. there is a place in uzbekistan where kyrgyzstan and kazakhstan all meet together, that is a group of terrorists they were married to taliban, we have fought them before, a lot have been in afghanistan. the fact we would have a diversity program hope to a-- hope to allow people to come in is insane. >> according to international crisis group between 2000 and and 4 thousand militants have come in. uzbek nationals are largest single group of isis supporters. should there be more monitoring
5:10 pm
of the country? >> absolutely, cheryl, it is insane what we're dig doing for diversity, you listen to governor cuomo and the mayor, they don't understand what they talk about lone wolves there is no such thing, they are soldiers of allah. they are soldiers of islam, they are always connected to it in ideology, people who talk about lone wolfs do not know the yelle ideology we're facing. it important we do that and incumbent on us to put responsibility back to muslims to fix this. infidels cannot fix in ideology problem. >> that lone wolf statement from governor cuomo last night has been hotly debated, thank you, general. >> thank you. >> house republicans, postponing the roll out of tax reform bill
5:11 pm
too tomorrow. -- to tomorrow, saying they need it finalize a few key detail, president trump talking about the much anticipated release. >> house is doing very well. they have taken an extra few hours, which will go into to tomorrow, and they will announce and i'll probably be standing with them, we're leaving for asia friday morning, i'm be standing with them, sometime tomorrow. and announcing massive tax cuts, and reform. >> like president suggesting that calling tax bill to cut, cut act, no word on whether that will be accepted by the hill. but president reportedly tapping, federal reserve governor jerome powell at next fed chairman, that is breaking news. grover norquist is with me now, let's put jerome on the
5:12 pm
sideline. we kind of expected that. but about the taxes tomorrow, what do you make of one day delay? have they not had 7 years to work on details. >> they have a very nice outline that is helpful, they are staying within it. what you are doing now is kind of negotiationing and coming to an agreement that otherwise might be happening at committee level or on floor of the house or a joint senate house conference. the fact they are doing it now, as they did with the budget, remember that budget could have taken three weeks, they sat down, they worked it out. the senate accepted the house amendments, and house accepted senate bill, boom, done in two days, impressive, saving us 3 weeks, on the agenda. to take the day now, and negotiate some of things worked on rather than a couple of weeks is a good use of time. it is helpful.
5:13 pm
>> grover, there are so many you know bones of contention on this from the state and local deduct to the estate tax. and to top tier rate on hiring americans, there seems to be more divisive pieces of tax reform. does that put getting this thing through in jeopardy. >> no, because things that used to be divisive are now all agreed to. idea of 20% corporate rate, originally house of at 25, trump came in said, 15 this a year ago. and house moved down to 20. trump came up from 15. you have full and immediate, expensing, difficult term amly, so do you it 5 years, these are settled questions, they are debating smaller questions, i
5:14 pm
think that is progress. we need to get the stuff down, no reason to wait until debt. >> grover, jerome powell, do you like the pick. >> yeah, he is a good pick. >> i figured that much. grover -- >> can we call him jerry. >> we'll see, grover norquist thank you. >> you got it. >> well, social media company facebook coming out with earnings after the bell, they beat on revenue by a billion dollars, stock is up slightly after hours. a stock to watch tomorrow. yes, white house has notified federal reserve governor jerome powell, not calling him jerry, grover. that president trump intends to nominate him at next president of central bank, adam shapiro is here with latest. reporter: the president likes it congress most likely will. this man is a life long
5:15 pm
republican, worked at treasury department from 1990-93, under secretary at industry investigating domestic finance. you might remember salomon brothers, he was involved in some investigation there. and the investigation of solomon yeah but he within to bankers trust, worked for carlyle group, then back to you might say government when barack obama, democrat president nominated him to join the board of governors, and took office with federal reserve in 2012. we spoke with governor powell back in jackson hole in august. about the potential that he might become the next fed chair. i think we have the sound bite ready. where he responded to what would you do if president called you. >> we dean have it ready, he said
5:16 pm
this say job that requires deep knowledge of federal reserve operations, i think it happens to have knowledge of economic issues that we face. he doesn't the economic issues, some people say he is kind of neutral on for instance dodd-frank regulation, he said weadock that more efficiently. he wrote a paper, deliver aid speech about 6 months ago, calling for congress to reform fannie mae and freddie mac, saying that issue has not been resolved. some refer to him as a dove. more neutral with monitor policy, expect more of the same with a few more papers from governor powell. >> seems like a safer pick. is how many characterize him, that is okay. we don't need controversy at the fed. reporter: he has real world experience, he was at carlyle group, and bankers trust, the other issue. back during the finish -- financial cliff years ago, he
5:17 pm
was the not in government service, he was going up to capitol hill talking to different lawmaker about why that would be a horrible thing to allow. the united states to miss the debt payment, this is not only a plan with real world experience in finance and politics as well. >> and you know him, adam shapiro thank you. >> the russia-funded facebook ads seem to back bernie sanders. what is up with that? we'll show them to you. later in the show, but first, more details did new york city terrorist, that fbi is seeking information on a second person. a relation to new york attack, details next. i accept i don't conquer
5:18 pm
the mountain like i used to. i even accept i have a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. but whatever trail i take, i go for my best. so if there's something better than warfarin, i'll go for that too. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin, plus had less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis had both. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... ...and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk
5:19 pm
if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i'm still going for my best. and for eliquis ask your doctor about eliquis. ♪ whether it's connecting one of or bringing wifi to 65,000 fans. campuses. businesses count on communication, and communication counts on centurylink.

5:24 pm
is the underlying issue behind the manhattan attack. we had unfortunately this afternoon, the former journalist, and interviewer of osama bin laden stepping forward to speak for nypd. saying, this attack had nothing to do with islam. we have muslim activists trying to claim that you are islamophobic if you talk about islamic extrem extremism. the real issue is we're not vet our ideas, not saying that islamic radicalism is not okay in this world, that is the heart of what we need to tackle, see on that part is a lot of cowardice. cheryl: and being politically incorrect, that is something as a country we've gone in opposite direct, especially under the freshiouprevious administration. >> what did the vetting process,
5:25 pm
would that help stop the isis-inspired attacks in u.s. >> i don't think it would stop it honestly, these ideas are crossing borders that are porous. we have to have increased vetting we're not doing enough to stop radicalization from coming in idea we can top flew through human bein being this tt is one we should not be naive about. that makes a man think that it is legal and islamic and religion to then plow people on the streets of manhattan. then declare allah akbar. god is great. cheryl: amazing, still sere yell what happened yesterday.
