6:00 am
and barbecues can no longer deny pregnant women alcohol in the new york city. we'll have a panel on to whether that's good or not. and we'll look at the potential trump vp picks and like vegas odds. >> the odds are we're off in two seconds. bill: fox news alert. a manhunt for $suspected gunman who shot two officers topping the news friday the 13, 2016. manchester, new hampshire, the first officer shot around 2:30 a.m. and still managed to call for help. shots fired. i have been shot. white male, long hair, trench
6:01 am
coat. bill: there is more of that in a moment. a second officer shot during th. breaking news here. the day after the meeting, after the meeting after the meeting. donald trump and paul ryan appearing to mend fences, but the story apparently over. marthaover.. martha: there were no pictures taken. but the whole thing was to get the party together. both speaker ryan and donald trump described the meeting as positive, but rome wasn't built in a day. >> i was encouraged with this
6:02 am
meeting, but this is a process. we had a good start to a process how we unify. >> we had a great meeting today. it will be a little process. but it will come along. martha: john roberts with more on this. >> we are learning more about what took place by talking to folks who were inside, and the consensus seems to be that donald trump did himself a lot of good. but he did seem to go a throng way to make some members of congress more comfortable with the idea of him as the republican nominee. there are concerns among that group of people to his policies and the way he talks about immigration and the way he talks about women. one of the participants
6:03 am
encouraged donald trump about how he would talk about his daughter ivanka. he said on "fox and friends" that ryan would eventually come around. >> we had a great meeting yesterday. he's a good guy, a very nice guy and committed to what he's doing and to the country. we had a great meeting and i think over a short period of time things will come together. >> he clearly doesn't wants to talk about it. >> i was standing feet away from him as he was doing and interview about the upcoming race in wisconsin and republican politics in general. it was 5:00 in the afternoon when the reporter brought up trump, and the reporter said, and he said we agreed we weren't
6:04 am
going to talk about this. good-bye. martha: there were suggestions he might release the names for the transition team sooner rather than later. reporter: it's usually after the convention that the names are released. but he wants to create more comfort. but he's also looking for the drama of it all which is why he will wait until the convention. he hates down to 5 or 6 people. he told sean hannity he has some very good people on the list. >> you will like most of them, i'm not sure about all of them. but you will like the final pick which is what counts. >> it's really tough.
6:05 am
it's a tough decision. we want to get somebody who is really good in all areas. reporter: he had a 15 minute throng conversation with senator lyndsey graham, a fella who said not too long ago that the republican party should tell donald trump to go to hell. bill: chris stirewalt is the fox news digital poll is editor. what does three hours of meetings change or accomplish? >> part of it is what you have to do. this was covered like a papal visit. but in reality is is part of what he has to do, and what's normal. but since nothing feels normal because of in trump's back ground and all that's gone into this insane nominating process,
6:06 am
everything feels fraught or exciting. you go and you meet with the people. nothing came out of it that was different except for this. what came out of it that was different. both paul ryan and the republican party and donald trump have decisions to make about how closely they ought to be aligned. and the question is how good is it for each of them to be too deeply unified. >> is the pressure on trump or paul ryan to make amend? >> i think what we are talking about is a klings and decision for both side. on paul ryan's side, he is a conservative. he's also not a guy who wants to i don't think need speaker of the house, and this is a difficult position to be in. he wants to govern. he's a nerd. he's into policy.
6:07 am
donald trump is in the business of winning. he's not taken ideologue and doesn't necessarily care about the politics. i think this is probably the when thing for ryan which is to say we are not mad at each other. we are going to run our own business and we'll see you in november. bill: darrell issa two days ago said he will support trump. then he recalled bush 41 raising taxes. and he said he had to bite his lip and go along with him. is there some that going on in washington. people saying we won't get everything we want. but this is what we have. >> no candidate is perfect. those feeling of imperfection are sharpened by there being so
6:08 am
many candidate. there is an expression, don't let the perfect get in the way of the good. the question is not about trump's policies. it's about trumpism, pro -- pop, and that's good for trump to be seen as running against his own party and dissident within his own party. bill: thanks, chris. we have some breaking news. martha: we are seeing a number of item crossing on this. russian president putin saying a u.s. missile shield in europe which is something he has long been against, would be a clear violation of the arms treaty. that missile shield is about tog to begin in romania and
6:09 am
construction will part in poland. vladimir putin says they will adjust their spending plans to neutralize the threat he believes will come in that shield. remember the open mic moment when president's was assuring president medvedev that they would work on that. martha: a federal judge ruling that way the affordable care act is being funded is unconstitutional. >> good morning. at least right now this judge's ruling did not have any bite. she put it on ice awaiting an appeal from the white house and
6:10 am
the justice department. congress has the power of the purse. and at issue here. $175 million for part of obamacare that goes toward reducing premium for lower income americans. the administration wanted to take that money from other places to pay for it. congress said they didn't fund it in the fir place and he funded it behind our back. >> it's unfortunate republican have resorted to a taxpayer funded lawsuit to refight a political fight that they keep losing. they have been losing this fight for six years. and they will lose it again. reporter: in the past the supreme court upheld obamacare. we'll have to see what happens when the appeals court take up this issue that relate more to the funding, specifically how the administration is doing that
6:11 am
in it fight with congress than the law itself. martha: the other big story out of the white house is they are issuing a directive to public school on the controversial bathroom issue. >> the white house and justice department saying the law that protects student from being discriminated against based on their race or gender then applies to transgender student. keep in mind, nowhere in title 9, the law being applied does it say anything about transgender. according to the white house a biologically male student can use the female locker room all they want. a biologically male tude can demand to live in a female dorm. the issue is whether the federal government can with hold funding, all those education dollars, from schools that don't
6:12 am
comply. martha: thank you very much. bill: more republicans on board the trump train including a republican donor with deep pockets. martha: division among democrats. are party leaders pushing for bernie sanders to drop out. bill: neighbors taking the law into their own hand to catch an alleged kidnapper, and you will be stunned to find out who that person is. >> i'm thankful to the lord to find her and get her back safely.

[crowd cheering] [crowd cheering over phone]
6:16 am
bill: some republicans are starting to come around to the idea of donald trump leading their party. some republicans are sitting on the sidelines threatening to stay home or were suggesting they will vote for clinton. welcome back to in the, good morning to you. what did yesterday's meeting do for this campaign?
6:17 am
>> for a lot of those guys and women, it was the first time they actually met donald trump. spending 45 minutes with him. as speaker ryan said, he only met him for 30 seconds before. bill: at one point he said i'll do it without you if i have to. >> with pore without you we have got to do it, we have to win this election. bill: could he do it without them? >> we would prefer not, but we could. bill: you could raise $30 billion without republican party support? >> we have gone from down 13 points to tied. america has come around to donald trump. the republican party has come around. washington is a few weeks late, that's typical. bill: you are suggesting they
6:18 am
are catching up with the trend. a couple stories about the taxes. earlier today with george receive ope --stephenopoulos. >> hims feel they are being lied to and not even being listened to. bill: i think what he has said is that people don't care, that's an entirely different calculation than what we have heard in past elections. is that good enough? >> some of them want their jobs back. everybody wants a raise they haven't gotten in 10 years. they want to send their kids to a school that actually teaches. they want to live behind doors that don't have four or five dead bolts. they want to be able to walk around their block at night
6:19 am
safely. his tax returns? people don't care about. bill: if he has to raise a billion dollars, can he do it? >> yes. bill: do you think it many a billion dollars or is it more. >> it's probably more. what the candidate raises and the other groups it's probably bill: this is a campaign shifting by the day. you are building infrastructure. > >> we are growing by the day. bill: when you have get into meetings who leads them? >> often it's core corey. >> he calls the shots. bill: dose come in with questions. >> he's very engaged.
6:20 am
one trait with all successful people is they are constantly learning. they like the process of learning. and he learned a lot about politics the last 7 months. now he's learning about campaign funding. he's a fast learner. bill: when he has an issue, does he come to you and say, i have never been here before and i'm trying to figure this out. >> he would come to corey or paul. bill: i'm trying to get insight into how this campaign is adjusting. >> he's trying to digest all this stuff and learning every day. walking the halls of congress. it's not something he ever spent a lot of time doing. congress walked up to him all the time and asked him for money. bill: dose enjoy that? do you get the sense he likes the process now that he's this
6:21 am
deep into it? >> i think it reason he's running is why he suffers through this process. i don't think he enjoys it. he's not a typical politician whose career ambition is to live in the white house and measure the drapes. he can live comfortably without this. but he has taken the mantel of this movement across the country and it's a personal sacrifice for him. bill: a sacrifice. he suffers through it. i will remember that comment. martha: a group of skydivers got more adventure than they bargained for. how their plane ended up like this. hillary clinton's private server was not the only way she conducted government business. >> i talk about the emails all the time. what does it say in does it get any more corrupt or look crooked
6:22 am
than that? i could get used to this. now you can. when you lease the 2016 es 350 for $329 a month for 36 months. see your lexus dealer.

6:24 am
6:25 am
bill: we now know a 9-year-old girl is safe after being abducted. two men came across carly and her uncle deep in the woods on their property. they held him until police arrived. >> i believe the lord led us. each one of us had been praying every day to help find the girl. and so finally he answered our prayers. bill: 57-year-old gary simpson is in custody charged with
6:26 am
kidnapping. martha: truly high stakes speed dating on capitol hill. other high profile republican lawmakers were there as well. the big attempt was to smooth over the tensions that exist between the more conservative camp of the republican party and the presumed nominee. >> i was very encouraged with this meeting. but this is a process. it takes time. you don't put it together in 45 minutes. we had a very good start to the process and how we unify. martha: some are very sceptical about this whole process. chris collins was the early adapter trump person to endorse donald trump and he's co-chair of the house trump leadership committee. what did you hear about what went back and forth between paul
6:27 am
ryan and donald trump yesterday? >> it was a positive first step as paul ryan indicated. i met with paul ryan the day before to talk about the upcoming meeting. paul ryan doesn't know donald trump. so we were able to fill mr. ryan in how mr. trump operates in a smaller closed room setting, not necessarily a rally. mr. trump was the mr. trump i know, which is a listener, someone who is very inquisitive. all indications are things went extraordinarily well with mr. ryan. there will be more meeting to come. today in our meeting the room was overflowing. many members leadership within congress, and so the unity -- martha: people are coming on board. the biggest question when it comes to paul ryan and donald trump, though they just met yesterday and kind of got to
6:28 am
know each other, they had a lot of back and forth in the past. trump discussed paul ryan. and the same is true for paul ryan. when you go back to an interview that he did in 2011, donald trump, when he was candidate about paul ryan's efforts as the head of the budget committee to shrink the federal government by shrinking the size of medicare. >> paul ryan seems like a nice guy but who cares. but i can tell you this, he's a bad poker player and bad chess player. martha: he said it was political suicide for any republican to try to cut the size of medicare saying you can't get elected that way. many government advocates believe these programs will fall apart and people will never get what they were promised.
6:29 am
>> as we move forward and you have the head of the bun the committee on board with mr. trump and we start filling in the blanks how we are going to get a budget that's balanced and deal with the ballooning debt and start paying that down. we'll have the discussions, mr. trump reached out, he asked for opinion. as we move forward to defeating hillary clinton. we know what would happen with any situation with hillary clinton when it comes to our budget and our debt, we'll be having a conversation. we have 6 months. the beauty of mr. trump locking this down on may 4, that gives us 10 extra week. many people didn't think it would happen until july in cleveland. we have 10 extra week to get it locked in. so it's all positive. martha: if i can go back one more time. do you think donald trump is open to the issue of of smaller
6:30 am
government and do you think in that time period in between now and the convention that we might see hip as he admitted he does change on the issues. would he be open to cutting social security and medicare to keep those programs solvent or no, that's not on the table. >> mr. trump is very concerned about our deficit and the ballooning debt and entitlements are part of that. at the same time all of us eye agree. we are not going to impact anyone on social security. >> that's where i think there is absolutely a place as we continue to move forward and have this dialogue. i'm very comfortable that we'll come to a united front on how we balance the bun the and start paying down our debt and at the same time maintain the security of medicare and social security.
6:31 am
bill: more on that manhunt in new hampshire. also the first senator to back donald trump saying the choice is easy. jeff sessions says if you are not for trump, you are not for america. the vp search may have gotten the most solid candidate to date. watch. >> do you have a plan to stop isis? >> no, but the new england patriots and i are going east later to figure that out. this is lulu, our newest dog.
6:32 am
6:33 am
mom didn't want another dog. she said it's too much work. lulu's hair just floats. uhh help me! (doorbell) mom, check this out. wow. swiffer sweeper, and dusters. this is what i'm talking about.
6:34 am
look at that. sticks to this better than it sticks to lulu. that's your hair lulu! mom, can we have another dog? (laughing) trap and lock up to 4x more dirt, dust and hair than the store brand stop cleaning. start swiffer ing hey, jesse. who are you? i'm vern, the orange money retirement rabbit from voya. orange money represents the money you put away for retirement. over time, your money could multiply. hello, all of you. get organized at voya.com. by back to breaking news. in new hampshire two reply shot earlier. a massive search for the gunman. traffic in the area has been shut down. investigators say the first cop was shot at 2:00 a.m., the second during a search for the suspect. both officers will be okay, but we are watching the story more
6:35 am
closely. martha: a newly released document in the hillary clinton investigation reveal she used her home phone for government business. emails show a covering between then secretary of state john kerry hoik -- secretary of state hillary clinton and share mills. she said i hear a high-pitched buzz. she said just call me open my home phone. these are the document, the emails released by the state department coming out on t friday afternoon document dumps we have seen over the last self months. you received access to them and you claim these are difficult revelations that were found in
6:36 am
here. what do you think the louisiana one points to obviously. >> they had a need to discuss something securely. the back and forth, they were trying to set it up over several email, communications between mill, her then chief of staff or incoming chief of staff and mrs. clinton. why did they need to discuss something securely, then why was mrs. clinton let her frustration get in the way and tell her just to call her on her home line which obviously wasn't secure. there is. >> the email which says she is communicating with a doctor activist who is into healthcare reform. she said blackberries aren't permitted in my office. we all know she used a blackberry anyway. these are new clinton emails. between this and other emails we have gotten recently, we have
6:37 am
new emails sheer in turned over to the state department. martha: these come from the state department. so we know hillary clinton said she wasn't that concerned about turning anything over. anything that was a communication to the state department she assumed was grabbed by their system anyway. she said any communication i have with the state department they have on their end. so doesn't that back up her argument in some way, tom? >> we got these also from huma abedin. i don't know if this is the state department record or huma abedin record.s on mrs. clintonl system and she was also using other emails to communicate. i'm not quite sure if the state department had all this. but it's pretty clear the state department to be fair to mrs. clinton has a bunch of clinton email they may not have released yet. we know there are dozens they
6:38 am
have just gotten. where are the emails. this is why federal court junes granted us discovery to find out about how the system was used so we can and the american people can get all the document their due under the freedom of information act and any other investigation. martha: what you a always hear from the government and from the clinton camp is we turned over thousands of document. what more do you want? we turned over thousands of emails. but it's completely irrelevant to turn over thousands of emails if you with hold even one or two that might point to the answer that is being sought. i just want to put one more quote up on the screen that you guys are very familiar with. this is a jake sullivan exchange. they say they have had issues sending secure fax. they say if they can't turn into non-paper with no identifying
6:39 am
heading and send non-secure she responded. >> this shows mrs. clinton was aware of classified issues in sending and receiving documents and she told others to remove classified headings. that's just devastating. everyone is pretending they need intent to prosecute here which isn't true. but you have the intent there. i can't tell you that the administration and mrs. clinton are in bed together on this. we have been asking for these document for years and we are now only getting them. going back to the earlier point, she didn't with hold one email from the state department. she only turned over half the emails she had. martha: if you have one smoking gun email and you release thousands, it doesn't matter.
6:40 am
it's the one that matters. >> today i stand before you not as a tv host or a father or even amazing lover, the best lover for sure. but as an american citizen. the future of our democracy is slipping through our fat buttery hand. no one ever has to be scared again because tonight i'm humbled announce i'm officially running for vice president of the united states. bill: he want in the game. after that announcement kimmel took questions. >> why aren't you running for president. >> that's a great question, thank you, mexican-american person. it's because i'm not an egomaniac. i'm humble like mother teresa.
6:41 am
>> do you know anything about politics? >> that's a good question. and i'll answer it with another question. does anyone know anything about politics really. we'll put the i can back in american. god bless you united states of america. bill: it's like watters world. martha: conflicting accounts about hillary clinton's email controversy. hillary clinton repeatedly referring to the investigation as a security inquiry. but the f.b.i. is saying we don't do security inquiries. bill: this to of people arrive at their location without luggage. thousands. a frantic search to find out where the suitcases are. olay regenerist renews from within...

6:45 am
martha: the phoenix airport suffering a screening problem that caused thousands of suitcases to pile up. crews had to sort through all of it before loading them on to trucks. the airport had to rescreen the bags. tsa officials say they believe the problem has now been fixed. bill: the government says if the tsa cannot reduce the wait times they will bring in a private contractor who can. >> it's interesting. as the lines get longer and longer the closer we get to summer, lawmakers are offering creative solutions to the
6:46 am
problem to make it faster for people with two democratic senators telling airlines they should drop bag fees because they think if checking bags was free, fewer folks would carry on and fewer bags tsa would have to rifle through at checkpoints. the tsa told the port authority in new york that travels are bringing too many carry-on bags. so it's their fault the lines take nearly an hour. but there are turning problems, too. the tsa administrator hit the hill to ask for more money. >> i asked congress to halt further reductions to the workforce. it was my suspicion we did not have enough people to staff our lanes and my suspicion was correct. we do not have enough people to staff our lanes. >> i disagree.
6:47 am
reporter: long lines aren't the only reason tsa is being scrutinized. they are accused of trying to hide a $90,000 bonus. they don't think they deserve it because tsa has a lot of problems. they will be going through a special boot camp in georgia, but we did ♪ downstairs at the check point there are a lot more tsa agents and normal for this time on a friday. martha: the obama administration may be getting ready to take action against new immigrants.

>> new fallout from that embarrassing video of 10u.s. sailors detained by iran. the navy firing the squad's commander saying they lost confidence in him now. the group were detained after drifting into iranian waters back in january. cameras rolled as they were put on their knees with their hands behind their heads. it raised tensions between the united states and iran. bill: are democrats putting more pressure on bernie sanders to drop out? the suggestion is his campaign is only hurting hillary clinton's chances in the general election.
6:52 am
debbie wasserman-schultz is back with us. how high is the pressure on sanders to drop? >> you note pressure isn't terribly high. we have a primary nominating contest. i think there is a dozen primaries left. it will play out and senator and materials says he will remain in the race to give everybody an opportunity to cast a vote, and each candidate has to make their own decision. secretary clinton said she stayed in until the voting was finished in 2008. we are working with our state parties, placing staff. so we are able to walk and chew gum at the same time. when we have a presumptive nominee we'll focus on unifying and make sure we can ramp up and get ready for our convention so we can launch our nominee.
6:53 am
bill: she dropped out in 2008 in early june. she has shown no indication of that. she'll stick it to the end of july when you meet in philadelphia. is that an issue? >> like i said. candidates make their own decisions. we'll see what happens. he says they will take a look at where they are after the last primary. i take them at their word. bill: when sanders' rhetoric according to senator mccaskill, rams up, the hairs on the back. my neck sand stand up. >> the republicans are in chaos. the speaker won't endorse the presumptive nominee. you have the last two republican presidents who won't attend the convention or support the nominee. you have scores of candidates who won't attend the convention.
6:54 am
you have a nominee who is refusing to release his tax returns, and told the interviewer it was none of his business. this is their standard-bearer and it will drag down their entire ticket all across the country. bill: i want to squeeze this in here. he won every county in west virginia but only picked up a few delegates. the more this grind on the more injurious this will come. >> joe biden and barack obama are going to be out there for our candidates all across the country stumping for our nominee. we are in good shape, we are on track. i'm quite confident where we are in our campaign preparing to elect our nominee. it's the republicans who have a mess on their hands.
6:55 am
bill: this how secretary clinton is characterizing that. >> this a security inquiry going on. we respect that, it is on its own timetable, but it's moving forward. the justice department has the emails, they have the server, they are conducting a security inquiry. i say what i have said for many, many months it's a security inquiry. bill: when that question was posed the to the f.b.i. director this week james comey said i don't know what that means. we are conduct an investigation. that's the bureau's business, that's what we do. i'm not familiar with the term security inquiry. is she taking this as seriously as the f.b.i. is? >> i think it's important to underscore secretary clinton isn't the target of this inquiry investigation or whatever "i" word you want to use. bill: how do you know that?
6:56 am
>> i have repeatedly been told that. my understanding is that secretary clinton is not the target of this investigation or whatever you want to call it bill: did the f.b.i. share that with you? >> i'm only repeating what my understanding is. but beyond that this election will be decided by voters who make sure they have a president who has our backs and won't take people's healthcare away now that 20 million people have it who didn't have it before. and won't take us back to a time when another president plunged our economy of into the economy since the great depression. bill: in the 5 seconds i have left. is she taking this f.b.i. matter seriously, yes or no >> when you release 55,000 pages of emails and demonstrate the transparencies she has throughout this "i" word, most
6:57 am
definitely, and that's still not what the voters will be making this decision on when they decide who they are voting for for president. martha: newly discovered recordings from someone claiming to be a publicist for donald trump have surfaced. better than clorox.

>> we know a lot about her, and reporters want to dig in even more into the clinton foundation and the emails and whitewater, that's fair game. but i don't think it's a bad thing. whether 20 is the right number for the post. we don't know a lot about the deals. and relatively speaking as compared to a candidate who has run for office before. he has not been especially vetted. better to find out now than when he's elected president. martha: he says it's not him on thought recordings. if we don't have that, we are going to be talking to reince priebus who was the third man in
7:06 am
the room with ryan and trump yesterday and find out what really went down. then, two, where do we go from here. as you say, ryan hasn't signed on, and a lot of con republicans haven't. to speak to that we'll have a debate between newt gingrich, the former speaker of the house. a tea party republican, very conservative. he's not a conservative he says he doesn't want his 9-year-old son to you watch trump on tv because he doesn't know what will come out of his mouth. and we'll talk to gingrich about the fact that he might be the running-mate. there i a lot of talk about that. martha: newt gingrich has been so fascinating throughout this cycle. it will be interesting to debate the merits and whether he should

get on board. thank you, sir. see you this weekend. >> a new report this morning could affect hillary clinton's campaign. the clinton foundation, the clinton global initiative gave money to a for-profit company to the tune of $2 million. jim rosen out of washington. who are these friend of the clintons'. >> the wall treat journal identified personal friend of the clintons and a vendor who received millions as investors in an energy company who wanted to provide insulation in low-income household. when clinton was secretary of state they arranged for it to be placed on the fall conference agenda. the company had just been
7:08 am
founded the year before. among the investors was scott kleib who has run for congress in the cornhusker state. and also a family friend. the article indicates mr. clinton communicated about the company receiving a grant which they did to $800,000. chu told stanford university he did not remember the conversation. bill: has the clinton campaign responded yet? >> it normally arranges contributions to wealthy non-profits. the organization insists it's quite natural for friend of the president to become involved with its charitable work.
7:09 am
many of those individual and friend are involved in cgi commitments because they share a passion for making a positive impact in the world as opposed to a conflict of interest, they share a common interest. her campaign denied any wrongdoing by the clintons or the foundation. bill will be james rosen out of washington, thanks. martha: the manhunt continues in new hampshire after two police officer were shot early in the morning. it happened in manchester, new hampshire. here is the chilly audio of one of the officers shortly after he was shot.
7:10 am
martha: they did a great job of getting that crucial information out over the phone. molly line joins us in boston. what do we know about what happened there? reporter: that full-call manhunt went on throughout -- that full-scale manhunt went on throughout the night into the morning. the white male with a long trench coat and a black backpack on and long hair. that's what police have been hunting for. one officer was shot at a certain location, and when other police responded. >> the officer was shot. the fellow officers responding to that area understood it was a dangerous situation. we know on the west side of the
7:11 am
city, the officers are expected both of them to be okay. that according to the chief of police. he says the injuries are non-life-threatening. the things are beginning to lighten up. the situation is backing off just a little bit. there are resident that are hopeful someone has been taken into custody. but we have yet to confirm that. at this point in time, it's still an ongoing situation. bill: the first senator to back trump is telling voters supporting trump is the american thing to do. he calls it a simple choice that will shape our country for decade to come. >> you got someone in there? martha: deputies scrambling to save a man as smoke billows from a mangled car. we'll show you the dramatic rescue.

march report first senator to get on board and endorse donald trump says the 2016 election has
7:16 am
become a simple choice. he says you are either for america or you are not. alabama senator jeff sessions lays out his case for trump in a "usa today" op-ed. he says this november will give americans a cheer quhis on probably the most important chaschoice facing our nation. martha: mercedes schlapp, and juan williams. there has been so much discussion about the divide in the republic can party. jeff segs says he thinks this decision when you look at it in that way is really quite simple.
7:17 am
>> i think what we need to look at is how do we make america competitive in today's global market. we are seeing a gap. we are seeing american workers where 4/5 of americans are not seeing income increases or income growth in the metropolitan areas. wages are stagnant. our economy is sluggish. americans don't feel they are being placed first. so we have to look internally. we need to look internally to see how we are benefiting america in general. so i think that's bad when we talk about helping the american worker. but also american exceptionalism. that's clearly the vision donald trump is pushing forward in the election.
7:18 am
>> i think you are papering over significant differences. you started off on the right point. this is an effort by senator sessions to say get in line and get on the band wagon, you must support donald trump and ignore the policy differences in the party. the republican party is a party of free trade. senator sessions is saying we are changing directions. senator sessions says immigration hurting blue collar workers. this is an effort to say despite differences about immigration backed by the chamber of commerce and big companies in the country. despite the continues in trade, don't worry about it, just get on board. martha: i think what he's also saying, he's saying we have too many problems, right? if you think that donald trump
7:19 am
is not a conservative, look to the fact that he is committed to repealing obamacare. so that's a shrinking of government decision, right? if you repeal obamacare you want government to be small, you want to get out of the way of business. but the other important issue is he promised to appoint conservative judges. look at those two things more than anything else and the rest of it will work later on. >> conservatives believe in small government. donald trump says there has to be national healthcare, but he doesn't have an alternative. an says we are going to shut down trade without imploding our economy. it's just the good language. senator sessions is cheerleading here. martha: that's fine, he can do that, it's an op-ed.
7:20 am
and he's on board with donald trump. he says you are going multi-culturalism and globalism or put america first. >> when it was ronald reagan in 1980 he talked about this being part of the problem we want trade on america's terms, not on the world's terms. reagan did impose tariffs on japan. if we are not getting free trade and we look at case of obama with china where he doesn't dare say they are doing currency manipulation or unfair trade practices, this is the model we want to continue with hillary clinton? when you look at trump's economic populist message it resonates with the american workers because they are tired of the fact that we are having an immigration system that we can't control who is coming into our borderers. there are millions of people living in the shadows. this is why there is a need and
7:21 am
hunger for this change in america. martha: that is the choice that needs to be made. >> facebook respond to accusations it censors conservative news items. what mark zuckerberg is saying about the claim and what he plans to do about it. martha: this is not the way you want to spend your vacation 200 feet above the ground. more base horsepower. once driven, there's no going back.

7:26 am
how is he addressing the possibility, then? reporter: he is set to meet with leading conservatives and people from across the political spectrum. he says while they found no evidence of any tampering if you will. they are conducting a full investigation on their side to insure that they do not find anything. meantime the senate is going to conduct scene inquiry. a full copy has been published on his blog. reports say certain topics have been black listed. zuckerberg did post a long response in part last night, it says this. the reason i care so much about this is it gets to the core of everything facebook is and everything i want it to be. every tool we build is designed to bring our global community together. for as long as i'm leading this company, this will always be our mission.
7:27 am
these are the guidelines, probably 10 pages or so they put up online that shows how they say they go about finding trending topics. bill: what does it show how news is selected. reporter: media outlets have come up with an investigation of their own. what they found is interesting. the document they found said the trending news section is mostly curated by editors. it's not done by a machine as originally told. though they admit humans have interaction on it. facebook elaborated on its role saying the human curators may contain does. and the company went about doing this and getting away from the algorithm idea in 2014 when the

7:30 am
7:31 am
bill: now we hear a federal judge dealing a blow to obamacare, ruling that the federal subsidies for low income families are unconstitutional. that decision could affect whether or not insurance
7:32 am
companies continue to participate in obamacare which could leave millions without insurance. president of health policy and strategy associates has been looking at this case and with me now. sur, good morning and welcome back to "america's newsroom". >> thank you. bill: house republicans challenged it because they said ated, correct? and the judge agreed with them. go ahead. >> that's correct. the challenge here is that the law does not clearly say that the money should be given to the insurance companies. this is a lot like king v. burwell a year ago in the supreme court where the administration is paying out money that the law is not clear about. house republicans challenged it, and the first federal judge has sided with the republicans. bill: okay. so if it wasn't written in the law, basic stuff here, how was the government able to funnel that money in whatever direction it wanted whether it was poor people, rich people or middle class? >> well, particularly, it's $175 billion that the obama administration is paying out, and it's not clear they're able
7:33 am
to, at least the first judge said not. so this will go to the supreme court. the problem here is at a time when the insurance companies are losing a lot of money in obamacare, the insurance companies are losing in 41 out of the 50 states, and they're looking at huge rate increases, it looks like there's real potential for them to get hit bigtime by having this money frozen. let me be clear that the people who are on obamacare, the low income people, there's no risk that they're going to lose their subsidies because the law says they will get them. the problem is there's no funding in the law for it, so the insurance companies would have to give these subsidies -- even without getting reimbursed at least in the year in which the decision came down, for a small insurance company like one of these fragile obamacare co-ops, order of magnitude, this could be a $10 million hit per month for the smallest companies. is so it could be a staggering hit on the insurance companies that are already losing money. bill: put it in simple legal terms. if it goes to the high court, as you suggested, what is the
7:34 am
question before the court? >> the question before the court really isn't about obamacare per se, it's about whether the congress has the sole authority to appropriate money, that money can't be spent unless the congress said it should be spent. there's nothing in the law that specifically says this money will be spent. the congress, the republican-controlled congress has refused to put the money in, so the obama administration said, well, it just makes sense that the overall law was passed, and overall we appropriated money, so we're going to spend it anyway. this is very much like king v. burwell a year ago -- bill: refresh my american memory on that? go ahead? >> the law said subsidies couldn't be paid in the exchange unless it was a state-run exchange. that's the plain text of the law. said it had to be a state-run exchange. and conservatives challenged obamacare because the federal exchanges weren't, quote-unquote, state-run exchanges. now, the supreme court ultimately sided with the obama administration.
7:35 am
we'll see where it goes this time. but what's really important here is there's this huge cloud, this huge question mark over the insurance companies and whether they're going to get the money or not at a time they're already losing money, at a time their looking -- they're looking at big rate increases. are they going to be looking at bigger rate increases? looking to exit the exchanges at some point concerned about what would happen? bill: well, you only, i mean, you're painting a grim picture here about the law and what it means for the future for americans operating under it. if the court agrees with your opinion, what does that do to the law? what would be the effect of that? >> well, it would not end the law or be catastrophic. in the year in which the decision came down, the insurance companies would suddenly lose these subsidies. and, again, this can be like ten million a month for the smallest insurance company. and there could be substantial underwriting losses, if you will. some of these fragile insurance companies could go under. the biggest and healthiest
7:36 am
companies would suffer severe hits. we'd probably see rate increases down the road. so this would not end the law. and, again, it would not end the subsidies for the low income people. this is about the financial integrity of the law in the insurance industry and whether they can continue to support the law given the big cloud that's over it. bill: wow. that's an amazing analysis. we're see if you're right. josh earnest said republicans have been losing this fight for six years, and they will lose it again. >> well, they may lose it, but this cloud is just a huge thing -- bill: robert, i'm out of time, but thank you for yours, sir. >> you're welcome. bill: thank you. martha: an exclusive follow-up information of the problems facing the u.s. air force. fox news visiting bases where fighter jets and bombers and learning that pilots and mechanics are exhausted, they don't have the right parts for their planes. there are some planes that can't even fly. national correspondent, national security correspondent jennifer griffin joins us now with a
7:37 am
look, a close look at what these problems are. what'd you find, jennifer? >> reporter: well, martha, we visited a b-1 bomber wing in south dakota this week and found a shocking amount of wear and tear on the force. out of 20 p-1 bombers there -- b-1 bombers there, only nine could fly. the civilians who used to do the work were fired under recent budget cuts. this squadron just returned from the middle east in january. >> the first jet i worked on 28 years ago had a thousand flight hours on it. now some of the airplanes out here are pushing 10,000 flight hours. it's not only the personnel that are tired, it's the aircraft tired as well. >> airmen are tired, they're burnt out. we deploy over and over again and you're worked as hard as you have to be worked to get these things in the air and get our training done, these airmen are starting to get burnt out. >> reporter: we also visited an f-16 squadron in south carolina that had just returned
7:38 am
from combat. when they arrived in the middle east, their f-16s were missing 41 parts, martha. martha: that's just crazy. what are they doing when they're short of parts? >> reporter: they go to the desert in arizona to the bone yard. they strip old planes of parts. the problem is some of those airframes are now stripped so bare of parts, and they aren't making anymore. planes like the b-1 are more than 30 years old. like the marines we reported on earlier, have had to cannibalize these aircraft to get the bombers back out into combat. >> this is one of the jets we pulled this part off of. we pulled it off of six other museum jets throughout the u.s. >> reporter: so this piece here came from somewhere in here -- >> just tells you which direction your wheels are going as you're taxiing the aircraft or landing or taking off. >> reporter: so you can't steer without, and you had to go
7:39 am
to museum aircraft that have been mothballed in order to get planes flying in the fight against isis. why'd you have to do this? >> because there's no left in the flight system. >> reporter: we will have even more startling details as part of this investigation tonight on "special report" with bret baier at 6 p.m. eastern. martha: that is an unbelievable story, jennifer. when you think about the stories we've done documenting the waste in government spending in so many areas, that this is what they're doing to get those planes flying, in the air s and who knows if they're safe at all. jennifer, thank you very much. great report. we'll see more tonight. bill: we are getting brand new reaction at this hour to the white house's directive at public schools and how to deal with the transgender issue in restrooms. that's a live look at dallas. lieutenant governor in texas now responding to the issue, and he is none too happy. we'll tell you what he's saying about it, what the white house's position is as of this morning.
7:40 am
we'll have a fair and balanced debate on that in a moment. plus, there's this today -- martha: this was a race against the clock as a car, mangled in a crash, began to smoke with driver trapped inside and, boy, did these folks step up to the task. we're going to show you this when we come back. (politely) wait, wait, wait! you can't put it in like... ...that, you have to rinse it first that's baked- on alfredo. baked-on? it's never gonna work. dish issues? cascade platinum... powers... through... your toughest stuck-on food. so let your dishwasher be the dishwasher. see? told you it would work. cascade.

7:43 am
martha: now to a fox news alert on the new guidelines that came out from the white house today on transgender bathrooms in schools nationwide. this is a live shot right now out of dallas. this is the texas lieutenant governor, dan patrick, who is responding strongly to these guidelines saying that his state will not, quote, be blackmailed. listen. >> that there could be a separate bathroom. it's up to each school.
7:44 am
i'm not laying out a policy today. look, monday afternoon i was sitting down doing an interview with another television station, and the story broke on fort worth, and i was thrust into it. no one else was stepping up, i stepped up. we've learned a lot about that situation, and now i'm thrust into this story. it's not a fight of my choosing, so i have to think through all the policy issues. but we can accommodate, again, phil, like we do all kinds of students with all kinds of issues, you know? kids have issues when they come to the school, and schools have a tough job accommodating them, but they do. but this is now taking one child with an issue and saying everyone else, for whatever reason, the superintendent and now the president have, makes no sense. again, it's going to undermine public schools. i said this tuesday. this will be the end of public education if this prevails. people will pull their kids out. home schooling will explode, private schools will increase. school choice will pass.
7:45 am
you know, we passed the last time, the senate and the house did -- and i hope the house wakes up this time. not that the members -- we probably have the votes, by the way. >> can you circle back around to school finance as far as this decision? you said the courts, that it's constitutional system but though not perfect, what does it mean for the texas senate in 2017? >> well, look, i've been on education for eight years, chair of my last session in the senate. i worked on finance for two years. school finance is a very difficult issue because we have 1200 school districts, 8,500 schools, 300,000 teachers, thousands of principals. i mean, it's very complex. school districts are different all over the state. we're a very regionalized state because we're so big, and so it is tough to make sure some of the poorest counties, you know, the robin hood issue which doesn't work well. now you have some poor districts that are having problems because the economy turned in their county because of oil and gas. it's a very complicated system. but the supreme court today said what we have been doing is constitutional.
7:46 am
the 600 school districts that sued lost, and we will continue to work, and i'll continue to work to be sure that every student in texas -- look, i'm a big public education guy. you know? everybody knows that. i'm passionate about public education. i just believe we have choices for charter schools and private schools and home school. but most of our kids, at least until obama last night, most of our kids are going to be in public schools, and we have to get it right. but it's, it's a complex system, and we're always looking for better ways -- >> lieutenant governor, so you talked about directing superintendents not to follow. >> right. >> how do you tell them where the money's going to come from to make up the difference for those school lunches if that's where the money's lost? >> well, first of all, tom, today, again, the president is saying this is our recommendation. if you don't do this, i may pull your funding. so he's not going to pull the funding next week. so i think they can, i think they can get through this next three weeks, just stay on your
7:47 am
plan. you know, one of the things, by the way, tom, that really bothered me about the superintendent and now the president, we are now in the last couple of weeks of school. kids are are trying to graduate in some cases. kids are trying to take their finals. kids are trying to pass their courses. this is such a distraction to the teachers and the kids and the parents. it's so disruptive. but we'll work our way through it. the school districts just need to take a deep breath, know that probably 70% -- martha: all right. we're going to keep one ear to this very interesting discussion that's going on with the hue tent governor, dan patrick, in texas. the departments of justice and education informed schools, this is what he's talking about, that transgender students should be allowed to use the bathroom of the gender with which they identify. and any school that doesn't do that could potentially lose their federal funding. alex little is a defense attorney and former assistant attorney, and julie roginsky is
7:48 am
a democratic separate jace and fox news -- strategist and fox news contributor. alex, what do you think? >> well, you know, i think one of the things that the lieutenant governor's skipping over, this is not a change in the law, it's a policy document. title ix, it's called significant policy guidance. and i think the way he's portraying it is a little more grave than it is. the obama administration is taking a determination of sex discrimination that is going to lead to some results that the lieutenant governor doesn't like. but i don't think it is as necessarily drastic as he's placing it to be. martha: it reminds me of the rule that they did at colleges where, in terms of sexual -- >> absolutely. martha: -- and that was also a policy recommendation, but it has had huge ramifications at colleges across this country. >> it's exactly the same thing, yeah. martha: exactly. they're expanding the understanding of title ix to areas that it was not originally designated for, and that's a legal argument in and of itself. what about the argument, julie, that the lieutenant governor's making here?
7:49 am
he's saying that be this goes through, if this becomes something that's pervasive and insisted upon at public schools across the country, you're going to see more and more people taking advantage of their options for school choice, pulling their kids out, educating them at home. what do you think about that? >> he may be right, but the language he's using is so reminiscent of the language used in the desegregation fight in the 1960s where you had people standing at the doors saying if you let black children into school with our white children, we're going to pull them out. same exact language. look, the reality is this affects a minuscule number of children, and those children are suffering because those children believe that they were born in the wrong body. martha: yeah, but he's saying, julie, he actually said we can make accommodations. schools deal with the needs of individual children every single day in order to allow them to have the education that they are promised in this country. but he's saying leave it to, leave it to the district, leave it to the school, leave it to the local officials.
7:50 am
because when you think about the problems that we have with education in this country, not to mention discipline. they've also made it very hard for schools to expel kids which is another -- >> separate issue. martha: down to the local level. he's saying just get out of our way, let us deal with our local communities and stop telling us what to do in our school systems. alec, can you respond to that? >> yeah. i think there is a very important distinction between accommodations and discrimination. martha: yep. >> and it's critical that the department of education and justice -- which issued this le this under title ix because that's a civil rights statute that says you can't discriminate, and here's the basis. it's gender identity. under the law accommodations are a very different set of standards -- martha: yeah, but what about what you're impressing upon the rest of the student body by allowing someone to decide this is my gender today, this is my gender tomorrow. you're going to have countersuits, i would imagine. >> you could, but under civil rights law, those have been
7:51 am
dealt with by courts time and time again, and the courts have said if this is a category we think the law protects -- martha: i'm sorry, you guys, i'm about to get cut off by this computer. thank you very much. we're going to have more in a moment on this when we come back. protection now comes with an incredible double your money back guarantee. always discreet is for bladder leaks and it's drier than poise. try it, love it or get double your money back. always discreet.

shoshow me more like this.e.
7:54 am
show me "previously watched." what's recommended for me. x1 makes it easy to find what you love. call or go online and switch to x1. only with xfinity. >> this policy does nothing to better educate our students. it does nothing to improve reading and math scores. it does nothing to cut dropout rates. it's not about education. he's either paying back the lesbian, gay and transgender community that helped him defeat hillary clinton in 2008, or he believes in this policy. i don't know for what reason he's doing it. bill: so that from a moment ago, lieutenant governor dan patrick in texas with a strong position now publicly against the order
7:55 am
from the white house that tells public schools about transgender use of public bathrooms. and this is, it's going to catch fire today. martha: it sure is. there's so much more to talk about, so we held over alex little and julie roginsky, democratic strategist and fox news contributor. that was a political charge that was just made by dan patrick, julie, so let me go to you on that. your thoughts. >> listen, i think it's a sad charm to make. it may just be that barack obama believes this is the right thing to do. you know, i love hearing about states complaining the federal government is imposing its mandate on them. don't forget, this whole controversy began when charlotte, north carolina, passed a local ordnance allowing bathrooms to be used by transgender people of their choice, and then the state of north carolina said, no, we don't believe in it, we want to do something very different. so, again, this is an issue i think looking back 10, 20 years from now is going to be yet another defining civil rights issue again. if you're saying that transgender people cannot use
7:56 am
the bathroom of their choice they identify with because you're worried about safety, what's to say that lesbians can't use the bathroom of their choice because they may assault fellow women or a gay man can't use the bathroom of his choice. martha: where does it end, alex, is the question that's raised here. >> i think one point that's missed is what's going to happen next. i think it's critical that the north carolina bill passed because it caused the department of justice to have to take a step. part of education said last year -- department of education said last year, two years ago, they thought gender identity should be protected under title ix, and this is the actual consequence of the position that the administration's taken for two years. martha: thank you very much, alex and julie. good to have you. bill: we expect more reaction on this today. also, trump and ryan found some common ground. how far is he, paul ryan, from an endorsement? next.
