vo: across america, people are taking charge of their type 2 diabetes with non-insulin victoza®. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar. but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza®. he said victoza® works differently than pills. and comes in a pen. victoza® is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once a day, any time. victoza® is not for weight loss, but it may help you lose some weight. victoza® works with your body to lower blood sugar in 3 ways: in the stomach, the liver, and the pancreas.
3:15 am
vo: victoza® is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza® has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza® is not insulin. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza® or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include itching, rash, or difficulty breathing. tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza®, including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis). stop taking victoza® and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back,

here. you see someone standing there with a hoodie in front of the cops. it says, please stop shooting this. then you have beyonce on top of a new orleans cop car and it's sinking. is this why there's so much controversy? >> there are various references throughout her music that i've heard from fellow officers and it's a controversy around the country that all police officers engage in police brutality and things of that nature, when that is very, very inaccurate. so to take that message, primarily during the super bowl time, and defend that offends police officers nationwide as well as police officers in pittsburgh. >> are there any cops who say they will work the concert or do they all say they don't want any part of this? >> when i checked the website on the way in, they were still about 30% choice filling death tail inside. and outside they haven't filled it at all, to my knowledge. >> you see anti-cop rhetoric,
3:56 am
anti-cop message, so if she's anti-cop, why should we support her? but don't you have an obligation to the people at her concert? >> we have detail around the city just because of personal preference. some police officers don't want to work bars, other police officers don't want to work traffic details, and some police officers just want to spend memorial day weekend with their family. we're very shorthanded here in the city, we're very understaffed, and just because this concert has sensationalized this issue, secondary detail goes unfilled all the time. as far as trumping anybody's feelings, last night there were a myriad of details in the city that went unfilled that have nothing to do with beyonce. >> we hear both sides. thank you very much. tell us what you think about this story. still ahead, donald trump tops hillary clinton. the latest national polls that

4:03 am
have a pool fence and things like that. everybody who comes over has to pay a fine. but we don't have many friends that come over. the headlines in the post -- you want to look at that? >> i hold it up and they go to the graphic. over the last 30 days, you can see hillary clinton has gone down, donald trump has gone up. and now, as we take camera 3, here's the headline of the new york post today. trump flies, hillary cries in a poll survey. poll vault. and she's screaming. >> four in a row, donald trump's surge, no doubt about it. the wall street journal is the only one that has trump up and it's three points. i think that's the story. nobody anticipated this so quick if it was going to happen. so when the "washington post" goes to do this story, do you know what they put in the headline? they put in the headline that while the negatives on both candidates are extremely high.
4:04 am
excuse me, you swung and missed with a fastball down the middle. >> because they're talking about the last four straight presidential surveys where trump has surged or surpassed. in the abc poll, trump is up by two, in the rasmus serks n po rs up by three. it shows the trump support is really starting to gel because his support with republicans has gone from 72% to 86% with republicans in one month. >> if you look at that poll, i think it was a few months ago she was ahead by 11 points and now she's ahead by three points in that one poll. >> when you look at the independents -- you got people on the right wing, people in the left wing and people in the middle, the independents. the independents favored donald trump by 13 points, which is a
4:05 am
22-point swing over the last month or so. >> a lot of times you go to elections and even though you might be a republican or democrat, you say clinton is tough to beat. he's got a 6% favored rating and bob dole was never going to win it. and maybe sarah palin wasn't the right pick. with mitt romney, same thing. barack obama didn't close strong. i think this shows that whoever closes best will win. the die has not been cast. donald trump is meeting with henry kissinger, meeting with jim baker, bob corker. these are the things republicans wanted him to do to show that he will come and learn about policies he couldn't possibly have digested as a businessman. >> do you know why he's able to do that, though? because the republican party has already decided the presumptive nominee. he's able to really start focusing on his campaign going
4:06 am
forward, how to beat hillary clinton -- >> he's got some to go, too. >> exactly. but if you look at the democrats, they don't know who is going to be the nominee. >> do you know who this is good news for, in addition to donald trump? about a month ago, the narrative in capitol hill was if donald trump is the nominee, this is really bad for down ticket people, the people who are running for the house and the senate on the republican side. you look at these polls now, this is good news. your down ticket on a republican race, this is good for you. >> so over the last couple days, donald trump appeared before the nra and he got a full-blown endorsement. carl roven pointed out it was important if he would have the general consensus behind him, and hillary clinton came forward and talked about how irresponsible donald trump is. let's listen. >> donald trump said that in his very first hour as president, heaven forbid, he would overturn president obama's actions to strengthen background checks.
4:07 am
that's no way to keep us safe. you want to imagine what trump's america will look like, picture more kids at risk of violence and bigotry. picture more anger and fear. >> i don't want to have guns in classrooms, although in some cases teachers should have guns in classrooms. i'm not advocating guns in classrooms, but remember, in some cases, and a lot of people have made this case, teachers should be able to have guns. >> one of the things donald trump said in the last couple days is hillary wants to abolish the 2nd amendment through her supreme court nominee. >> she still has her security detail. >> why doesn't hillary give up her security detail and theno t protect the children who really need protection? >> but she has never said she wants to abolish the 2nd amendment. so donald trump is going to the extreme, and i think she's going to the extreme and saying donald
4:08 am
trump is going all over america shooting everybody. for the longest time, democrats have been afraid to approach the gun situation. that's a major risk for her to take on guns. >> because her approach was to look for common sense gun controls. there are already hundreds of laws on the books. the problem is, are those laws being enforced? and in many cases, they are not. >> and, of course, everybody is so successful in running against common sense. >> even nra people, everyone who supports gun laws and 2nd amendment, i believe they would all agree with you that they want to make sure the right people are buying the guns. >> sure. absolutely. >> nobody wants adam lanza to have a gun. we get that. but do you know what the common sense thing to do would be right now? we're starting this morning with a fox news alert, and it's

. well, you probably haven't seen many negative stories about the president lately, and our next guest says there is a reason for that. >> instead for the past few weeks, the american people have been treated to images like these. a "washington post" picture of the president blowing bubbles, a tuxedo-clad president yucking it up at the president's dinner, or obama with aretha franklin. white house correspondent richard benedeto, is this so unique that the white house press corps seems to be march to go his drum in his last two-year presidency. >> i think the president tries
4:18 am
to put his face forward to get good stories about the president doing good things. but i think this white house is successful at doing it because they're able to not only use social media to get its message out above the white house press corps, but it also has a white house press corps that's younger, a little more friendly and probably agrees with a lot of the president's policies. so when you agree with the president's policies in general, you tend to treat them a little bit more softly. >> also it was revealed by ben rhodes, who is one of the president's national security advisers, they're just making stuff up. and when white house correspondent, richard, calls the white house on that and brings it to their attention, the white house push him back behind the scenes. they chew him out, they freeze him out. >> i've heard many people who have been chewed out inside the white house press corps itself.
4:19 am
>> richard, you wrote an op-ed in the wall street journal talking about how the white house is manipulating the media. why did you decide to come forward with this information and report on this? >> i've been teaching it. i teach this particular aspect and it's on my classes in american university. one of the -- i have a whole powerpoint about how the obama white house manages the news media. i've been thinking about writing something about it for a while, and once the semester ended, i sat down and wrote it. >> it is very interesting, because you know all the youtube stars he actually sat down with. he did "between two ferns." everyone said this is going to hurt him. it's not going to hurt him. when you look at the policies, unless you're pro-afghanistan chaos, unless you're pro government in iraq, unless you're pro allowing 400,000 people to die in syria, how do you support that? when you say the press corps agrees with his policies, what
4:20 am
policies? >> i think it is policithe poli agree with would be less aggressive military use of force, more soft stands on gay rights, women's rights, those kinds of stories where the president -- take, for example, when he puts a decree out where schools will lose federal aid if they don't do transgender bathrooms. the press corps doesn't go into really finding out how this is going to impact local districts and what people feel. you have to go beyond just what the white house says. and that's the job of the press corps. >> and in the president's last term, during an election season like this, usually the president winds up with a lot of scrutiny. two-thirds of the country feel we're on the wrong track. he is not getting any credit for that. richard benedeto, we thank you very much. great op-ed in the wall street

"the biggest loser." they met you and then what did they tell you to do? >> they told me if i wanted to be on the reality show, i had to gain an extra 30 to 40 pounds. >> you had to be bigger to get on the show? >> absolutely. >> why do you think that is? >> they wanted people to drop a lot of weight on the show, and the bigger the weight, the more numbers you'll see on the scale. completely unhealthy. >> absolutely. you came forward in the last couple weeks because the national institute of health was doing a study to figure out why so many of the contestants on "the biggest loser" gained the weight back, and they came up with because the show is screwing up people's metabolisms. >> absolutely. if you see the research study, they've ruined people's metabolic rate, their hormones are way out of whack. it was only a matter of time before these contestants would regain their weight. it's not realistic to train ei800 calories

a day. >> you lost how much weight? >> i lost 400 pounds. i was a size 4. >> it's a tv show, so they want a dramatic result each week, a weigh-in and things like that. behind the scenes, what were they giving you in the form of assistance in losing weight? >> so basically everybody thinks that the show gave wonderful tools and they did not. they were advising you -- >> diet and exercise. >> they were advising you. bob harper would tell me, eat 800 calories. you'll weigh in because you're eating less. i would train every day and vomit on the set. they said, great, you'll even lose more weight. >> they were happy that you were throwing up? >> yes. they created eating disorders. they did not try to provide any assistance or help to any of these people because you would not advocate for an 800-calorie diet and eight hours of training. >> they were encouraging you to starve? >> yes.
4:27 am
>> which is not good for you. >> absolutely not. which is why you have a majority of these contestants heavy again. >> also the pills. tell us about the pills. >> behind the scenes during my season, i have heard that many of the men took diuretics. there was talk about efedra pills. i personally did not take any pills. bob harper completely just -- >> he was your trainer? >> my trainer, yes. was terrible. >> in what way? >> he would say, you're dehydrated. you need to digest two tablespoons of baking soda. >> what would that do? >> it would maintain water weight. they were trying to manipulate the tv show as to who would go home with too much weight because you would never take two
4:28 am
tablespoons of baking soda. >> how many people wound up going to the hospital? >> i would say about five people a season. >> they don't show that on the show. >> they don't show that, no. unfortunately, they should show that and they should show how many of these contestants have gained their weight back. they're not showing that, because you know what, they've washed their hands of all responsibility of these contestants after the show. they've made billions of dollars, unfortunately destroying these people's lives. >> do you think nbc should cancel the show? >> absolutely, 100%. they should cancel it and they should be responsible for everybody's -- they're suffering depression, their anxiety, their health. they've destroyed our health. >> the show denies all of this. >> of course, they would. of course, they would. however, we know as contestants the truth, and bring bob harper here. he'll refute anything, but you know what? i'm here speaking the truth. i'm telling you exactly what happened. i have no reason to lie. unfortunately, these are the awful practices that they did behind the scenes. >> here's what the show says
4:29 am
statementwise. "the safety and well-being of our contestants is and has always been paramount. we prohibit the use of any illegal substances in addition to the many other rules and procedures of the show that are designed to ensure safety." so the last word there is safety. do you think they were worried about your safety? >> no, they were not worried about our safety. you wouldn't make people train eight hours a day and work out in excess, and you wouldn't recommend that they actually stop consuming water before a weigh-in 40 hours prior to a weigh-in. >> you left a new york police department pension to be on that show. >> i did, yes. the biggest mistake of my life. i had a wonderful career, and basically "the biggest loser" took it all away. biggest mistake. i never should have gone on the show. >> so cancel the show. >> absolutely. cancel the show and they really should be pursued for a civil class action suit. >> would you sign on if there was a class action? >> absolutely. numerous attorneys have contacted many of us contestants, especially myself,
4:30 am
in want to go lead a class action suit against them. >> we've been reading the headlines. it's great hearing your personal story. sorry you went through so much. >> thank you so much for having me. >> suzanne, thank you. coming up this weekend, james bond is one of the main action heroes of all time. that's about to change. will the next james bond be a woman? donald trump tops hillary clinton in the national polls. it shows donald is surging. what this means for the race going forward. trump's son eric is going to join us live next. there he is. first, more from the billboard music awards and demi lovato. ♪ if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis isn't it time to let the real you shine through?

there is no evidence he has any ideas about making america great, as he advertises. he seems to be particularly focused on making himself appear great. >> there you've got hillary clinton yesterday on "meet the press" and here we've got eric trump as the lights are dimming in the studio. >> we're getting romantic. >> mood lighting. so what did you make about hillary clinton taking a shot at your dad? he's not out to make america great! >> when i read the post this morning, i lit up. poll vault, donald trump flies in the survey. he's doing great. people are sick of the scandals, they're sick of the nonsense. you guys had some great things on twitter this weekend. she has 730 people working on her campaign staff. we have 70. she spent $180 million on her campaign so far and she hasn't beat a single socialist.
4:35 am
my father has spent 100 million and he's beat 50. >> what do you think about your father surging in these national polls? >> he's honest, he speaks his mind, he's charismatic. he's different. you see all the problems we have as a country, whether it be our debt, whether it be our military, whether it be iraq and syria and everything else. you see scandals like benghazi, you see the clinton foundation and what's happening, and the whole energizer thing. it's a disaster, an absolute disaster. >> a lot of people are saying your dad is doing better now because the republicans have chosen who their presumptive nominee will be. do you think when the democrats choose their nominee, it will be tougher on your dad? >> we'll see. they coalesce around here. you saw debbie wasserman schultz. she already endorsed hillary. talk about a broken system.
4:36 am
probably. he's already done great in the polls. he's gained 11 points in the last month and a half, and i don't think she's going to get that back easily, believe me. >> i don't know what your post game is like, but we know there's been big meetings going on. we know he met jim baker, today bob corker. is there anything you can lend us as to what goes on behind the scenes? these guys who know foreign policy and where your dad was building businesses, they were dealing with countries. >> my father's meeting with the best and brightest people around the world. >> are they like, let me show you the globe and what i think to do with vietnam, with saudi arabia, with china? >> absolutely. very, very, very detailed, and he's going to the best and brightest people. that's how my father always ran a business, right? he got the best, the brightest, the most hard-working people. he put them in a room, asked for their opinions, asked for their thoughts and went in. he's doing the exact same thing. he's getting the advice of the
4:37 am
best, smartest people and he ultimately will make his own decision and chart his own path, but believe me, there won't be a single, important, influential person who is at the top of their game that he won't meet with. quite frankly on both sides. he's going to want opinions and he's going to want to make proper decisions. >> on the conservative side, lindsey graham and your father have been at odds with each other ever since the primary, and lindsey dropped out early. apparently over the weekend at an event down in florida, lindsey graham who has said he's not going to support your father, is telling republicans, hey, we've got to support this guy. >> what is the ultimate goal? the ultimate goal is to make sure hillary doesn't get into office. if she gets into office, it's another four, eight years of the same nonsense we have now. i'm glad to see the parties start to come around. they're also starting to get to know my father. he is an amazing guy, i say this all the time, and he will win this. he will work harder than her. he will do whatever it takes to

win this thing because the state of the country is really on the line. we could be putting four supreme court justices in in the next term. that is the state of our country. make no mistake about it, that is the state of our country. >> that's the number one issue for a lot of people, too, the number one reason people will go to the polls. jeb bush is kind of getting on the trump train as well. he's saying people who desert trump should be worried. >> people who look down their nose at trump, they're fearful for legitimate reasons. there should be respect for that. >> is that positive for the trump voter or about trump himself? >> i think it's both and i think it's about the party. it's really about the party. you have to remember with lindsey graham, with jeb, these things are so vicious inside, right, they're so hard. people put their whole lives on the line -- >> it hurts to lose. >> it does hurt to lose, and sometimes it takes a little

that's why i want to run for commander in chief of the united states and i want to fix the mistakes. i've done it in the private world and i can do it in government. that's a very special message. if someone is under audit, you shouldn't release taxes. also, you don't learn a whole lot from taxes. you learn a whole lot more from a net worth statement than you do from taxes. you just don't learn a whole lot from taxes. if you're under audit, you don't want to release taxes. it's crazy. >> he said his attorney is advising him against releasing them. >> sure. >> i heard greta van susteran say the same thing. >> sure. some headlines for us. good morning. >> good morning, everybody. it's 40 minutes past the hour. by air and by sea, the search for clues in the egyptair crash now expanding this morning. a u.s. agency spotting more than 100 pieces of debris. releasing a submarine to try to find the black box of the airplane. flight 804 crashed with 66

overtime protections to 42 million more americans. it's a move that will boost wages for working americans by $12 billion over the next 10 years. we're more than doubling the overtime salary threshold. >> but critics slammed this new policy as a disaster for employees and the economy. it already failed at ibm and will not work for your company. let's get reaction from the author of this book "who needs the fed?" we'll talk about that in a second. sean hannity -- john is with us. is there a blowback? >> it sounds good because it's basically the obama administration taking aim at various individuals trying to move up, saying if you do that, you'll do it at a good cost of employees. and employees are saying if we can't use workers the way we want here, we can move the jobs

meanwhile, what do you mean, who needs the fed? of course we need the fed. >> what we're finding is, in fact, we doenln't need it. my book is a very opty ni ttimi one. it points out the fed is trying to shrink the banking system. 50% and the number is declining. the climate of banks as a relevant institution in terms of lending, the feds' influence will shrink. >> and they play their best card, which is interest rates, which is near zero, anyway. in your book you say you paint an optimistic scene. in what effect? >> kind of like the obama administration to trying to make easy overtime pay, but in the economy credit floats to the most level that makes sense. in the silicon valley, if you want to get a loan to start a business or investment, you're going to give up a big portion

5:03 am
fact that donald trump has already won, essentially, the gop nomination and hillary clinton is still fighting bernie sanders on the trail, even though she has the numbers, she could see a couple-point bump after kind of sewing up officially on the trail that race. but what you're looking at is a divided country, as we knew. roughly 47% for each party to begin with, and they're fighting over the remaining 3, 4% to get over the top. >> you know, what's so interesting is even if you can say these polls are so early, it's only may going into june. i'm used to seeing stuff like this in july after the conventions are done. i'm not used to seeing it after the presumptive nominee becomes the presumptive nominee. there is somewhat of a trend going on right now, and i think the biggest surprise is the republicans seem to be coming together quicker than anyone thought. some said not at all. from 72% of republicans supporting trump, now well into the 80s. >> yeah. and i think you're seeing what we predicted, which was each
5:04 am
party is looking at the presumptive nominee and the other party as the euunifying force. not necessarily as the person or the policy issues, but the opposition to the other presumptive nominee. >> i'm better than that guy. >> really what matters is those electoral college states, the swing states, and you're seeing trump perform better in those polls as well. >> breat, over the weekend hillary clinton released her slogan, strong together. how many times did she say it? >> let's watch. >> we are stronger together. we are stronger together in facing our internal challenges and our external ones. we are stronger together if we work to improve the economy. we are stronger together when we have a bipartisan, even nonpartisan foreign policy.
5:05 am
we need to unify the country. we are stronger together when we act on a set of plans and priorities that will rebound to the benefit of the american people. >> so she got in five "stronger togethers." it's puzzling, because how many slogans has she been through? this is the third one. solutions that say we're stronger together, bret. >> she's stronger together, but the democratic party is not together. that's a problem for her. if you look at bernie sanders, still campaigning hard against her in california and other states for june 7. he's pointing out how, in the same polls we were just talking about, he does much better than hillary clinton does against donald trump. in one poll this weekend, he leads trump by 15 points. whether that plays out in the general election, who knows, but at least in the polls, that's his pitch on the stump.
5:06 am
stronger together, she's trying to attract disenfranchised republicans and bernie sanders, but she has a long way to go until sewing things up in philadelphia. >> i'm stunned to see he is endorsing the opponent of debbie wasserman schultz in a primary and says, if i become president, she will not be running the dnc. man, that is not somebody looking to throw in the towel in any way, shape or form, and i'm wondering how that plays into a possible debate on fox coming up, bret. >> well, we hope that it comes together. i mean, bernie sanders, for all we thought, bernie sanders is going to be the person that held out. he signed on right away, and we're still waiting for official word from the hillary clinton campaign. they have told us one is coming and we hope to hear today. >> bret, once upon a time, if anybody looks at the brett baer resume, you see brett baer was a
5:07 am
white house correspondent for the fox channel. he wrote a great op which has been published by the wall street journal. he used to be at usa today. he talked about the fact that two-thirds of the country feel we are on the wrong track. we got problems with the economy, we got trouble with security. and yet the president really isn't taking any heat from the press. you know, instead what's published, pictures of the president blowing bubbles like this, fawning pictures from the mainstream media. richard benedeto, who i'm sure you crossed trails with, used to be at the white house. he said this white house is genius when it comes to managing the press corps. watch. >> i think he's -- go ahead. >> he's successful at doing it because he's able to not only use social media to get his message out above the white house press corps, but it also
5:08 am
has a white house press corps that's younger and a little more friendly and probably agrees with a lot of president's policies. i've heard many stories about how reporters have been chewed out personally by people inside the press operation or inside the white house staff itself, and actually phone calls to editors complaining about the reporting being too tough. >> you were saying -- he was talking about how if some reporter puts out a tough story on the white house, the phone lights up and it's somebody from the press unit and they just chew your ear for half an hour. >> yeah, i think that was definitely the case with the last press secretary, and the one before that was active on that front as well. i think josh ernest has a bit of a different rapport with reporters. i do agree with some of that in that this president has really capitalized on the social media talking directly to the american people. i do think this white house, like most white houses, are trying to spin and put out good
5:09 am
images of the president, and they often do, look at the shiny thing over here if there's something bad happening. they do it pretty well, to be honest with you. as far as everybody signing on, this president has had some elements of this presidency that he got some bad press. >> right. we just have to find a microscope and we'll find it. brett, it's amazing because they've all been called out in that ben rhodes column that they're all 27-year-olds who don't know anything. i know you have to run. you going to do a special report tonight? >> i think i am, yeah. >> from the pool. >> from the pool, yeah. >> we'll definitely be watching. >> watch at 6:00 eastern time. let's hand it over to heather who has the headlines. >> we were just talking about president obama. he's overseas in vietnam. overnight president obama lifting a decades-long arms ban on that country. listen. >> the united states is fully lifting the ban on the sale of military equipment to vietnam
5:10 am
that has been in place for some 50 years. this change will ensure that vietnam has access to the equipment it needs to defend itself. >> well, the president making that announcement just hours ago. why is that significant? well, that move will likely anger china. many suspecting that our new decision is an effort to counter that country's aggressive behavior toward the u.s. and other countries in the south china sea. critics of his visit urging the president to push for answers about the fate of our american p.o.w.s who went missing during the vietnam war. president obama did touch on it. he thanked vietnam for helping to find some of our veterans but only briefly mentioned continuing search efforts. stay with us for a full report from vietnam that comes up at 8:30 a.m. eastern time. another fox news alert to bring you right now. an accused cop killer shot dead in massachusetts after opening fire on other officers. 35-year-old jorge sambrano barricaded himself inside an
5:11 am
apartment, then burst out of a closet firing shots. cops returned fire, killing him. this is hours after being suspected of murdering officer tarantino at a traffic stop. that officer leaves behind a wife and three sons. our prayers for him this morning. a ship and submarines joining the search for clues in the egyptair crash. they have found more than 100 pieces of debris. that search area is the size of a small country and will likely grow larger. it could take weeks and weeks to recover all the remains. terror is not ruled out as a cost. back home, a major screw-up at the padres game over the weekend when a group of male singers take to the field to sing the national anthem, and the speaker starts playing the female version of the song. listen to this. ♪ can you see by the dawn's
5:12 am
early light ♪ >> why is this significant? those men were actually members of the san diego gay men's chorus. they stood silently until the song ended before walking off the field. the team apologized calling this an accident. some have asked for a federal investigation into the mix-up. and those are your headlines. >> was it a tape they were playing? >> yes, it was a tape. >> that's embarrassing. i thought people always sang it live. >> now we know. coming up, it all started as a traffic stop, but no one saw this coming. the dangerous highway escape on camera. that's straight ahead. take a look at the cover of the new york post. trump flies and hil cries. what do people think about the new surge? i'm going to take the newspaper and hit the streets right now. >> the deuce is on the loose!

>> thank you. tell us about the film. >> well, the film really walks people through very real examples of how the clintons have basically become wealthy by peddling government influence and power. what's interesting about the story is we're not talking about wall street or large oil companies in the united states, we're talking about foreign governments and foreign corporations. that's, i think, is what's so shocking about what the clintons have done other than any other president in american history. >> i watched the movie two weeks ago. i went over there with bill hemmer. it's unbelievable how it's spelled out and i walked away thinking this. would they be this blatant about these scandals knowing that hillary clinton was queued up to run for president? why would they take any risk let alone put this out there? >> it's hard to get into their heads, but what i would speculate and say is, look,
5:27 am
there has been a pattern of behavior with the clintons for a long time going back to when bill was president, when he was governor of arkansas. they always play it very, very close ethically in this way, and they've gotten away with it. they haven't paid the price. i think when she became secretary of state, america's chief diplomat, they basically viewed it as an opportunity to cash in. you gave that figure that they've had $200 million of income from 2001 to the present. from 2007 to the present, it was $170 million of that. so they were doing pretty good before she became secretary of state. once she became secretary of state, bill's speaking fees tripled, the amounts and the quantity that they got from overseas went through the roof. they cashed in. there is just no other way to say it. >> sure. and, peter, there's no doubt that a former president can get hundreds of thousands of dollars to give a speech. but when you are a former president who was very popular but your wife is a sitting
5:28 am
secretary of state, suddenly that -- you know, that figure you can get goes up because it looks like -- and if it quacks like a duck -- it looks like there is some influence there, doesn't it? >> that's a great point, steve. i mean, look, every president since eyisenhower what they lef the white house has hit the lecture circuit. i don't have a problem with that. the problem is when your wife is a diplomat and your speaking fees triple overnight and you've got people like nigeria and russia showing up offering you $700,000 for a single speech when they weren't interested in having you speak before, and these same people have things sitting on their desk at the state department and you just take the money? it's ridiculous. they know precisely what's going on. >> where does the foundation fit into all this? >> that's a great question. the foundation is also a means
5:29 am
for influencing the clintons. if you're a foreign investigation, you can't give to the clinton campaigns, you can't give to the superpac, but you can give to the foundation. hillary clinton herself set up ethical standards saying bribery includes not just money give ton political figures but given to their charities. so just because money flows to the clinton foundation, it is still a bribe if it's done for the purpose of influence, and i think the pattern is pretty clear that this money is being thrown at the clintons because they want favors in return, and they are getting favors in return. >> wow. peter, out of all your research, out of everything you found, what is the most astonishing thing? >> that's a difficult one to answer. i would say it was probably the russian iranian deal who you have this canadian financier who
5:30 am
starts buying uranium in the united states. then in 2009, this small uranium company, you have five shareholders in a small uranium company in canada that gives $145 million to the clinton foundation. why did they give it? well, at the time they're giving it, they want to sell their uranium deposits in the united states to who? to the russian government, to vladimir putin. the federal government, including hillary clinton's state department, signs off on it. so the russians now have 20% of our uranium deposits, the clinton foundation has $145 million more than they didn't have before. these canadians made a lot of money, and everybody wins except the american people who have lost this critical asset which is now owned by vladimir putin. >> the film premier at the cannes film festival will hit your theeteaters shortly. peter schweitzer, thank you for joining us from canada.

we ever a fox news alert for you on this monday morning. a bombshell announcement overnight. the president of the united states has lifted an arms ban that has been in place in the country of vietnam for nearly five decades. people questioning now if it's a move to counter china's aggressive behavior. fox news correspondent kevin cork is traveling with the president and joins us from
5:35 am
hanoi. kevin? >> reporter: good evening from hanoi, vietnam. you're right, the president said lifting the arms ban in vietnam is a reflection between our two nations and he did dismiss this notion that this was somehow a reflection of growing concerns about an increasingly aggressive china and, in particular, the south china sea. >> the decision to lift the ban was not based on china or any other considerations, it was based on our desire to complete what has been a lengthy process of moving towards normalization would be enough. >> a process decades long. a pivot toward asia, an effort to improve strategic and diplomatic relations, the move in vietnam is seen as a normal step in relations.
5:36 am
the tpp to which vietnam is a signatory as an example of the increased cooperation, but critics wonder, given the hot and cold relationship between hanoi and beijing, what might happen in this circumstance if they get cozier with china down the line? and this comes just before president obama's trip to the g7 where he will reflect on the devastation in hiroshima. no apology for the actions of world war ii will be uttered, but the pictures will certainly be a powerful reflection of the cost of war, and we'll have our coverage from japan. for now we're still in hanoi. we'll head to hochi min city next. now let's hand it over to heather who has headlines for us. hi, heather. >> good morning to all of you. we start out with politics right
5:37 am
now. the dnc chair could soon be out of a job thanks to bernie sanders' army of supporters. nearly 2,000 of them signing an on-line petition to oust debbie wasserman schultz, that anger stemming from her criticism to how supporters acted at that rally crowd in south dakota. shocking allegations against the tv show "the biggest loser." ex-contestants telling the new york post that they were drugged, saying trainers forced them to starve. a new study that blames poor genes and slow metabolism on dramatic weight gain after the show's filming. the show's producers say they prohibit the use of illegal drugs, but here's what suzanne men mendoca, former contestant, had to say.
5:38 am
>> bob harper said, eat 800 calorie. i would train every day and vomit on the set. they said, great, you'll lose even more weight. i have heard many of the men took diuretics. there was also talk about efedra pills. they created eating disorders. >> she says nbc should cancel that show and she's talking to lawyers about suing the program. making headlines for his diva-like behavior. ♪ you're tired of loving, of loving ♪ when nobody -- >> kanye west's ex-body guard said his former boss did things like refuse to push his own elevator buttons, behaved like a toddler and did not allow his staff to speak in his presence. he was also fired for introducing himself to west's wife kim those are your headlines. don't we all act like that? maria has a look at our weather. hey there, maria. >> hello to everybody at home.
5:39 am
let's take a look at the weather across the country. yesterday we had extreme weather in portions of the plains. in southwest kansas we saw this massive tornado that touched down out there and there were reports of other tornadoes as well across portions of texas. now we're expecting another round sof severe weather out there. it's pretty quiet out there now, but there could be severe storms in areas of texas on into minnesota, and the risk for tornadoes will be in place today. you can see out there in western texas and also into oklahoma. we want to share with you now a video of that tornado that touched down in southwest oklahoma yesterday. the storm system very massive, and again, we are expecting another round of these severe storms later today. now let's head over to ainsley and brian. we're kicking off nascar's american salute, the tribute to the american armed forces. >> it starts this weekend with the coca-cola 500.
5:40 am
each will carry the name of a fallen service member on their windshield in place of their own. >> here to tell us more we have nascar driver carl larson along with his guest whose brother is a fallen soldier. >> sorry for your loss, but this is a wonderful tribute to your brother. how does your family feel about this? >> i think they're excited about everything. >> your brother's name will be on your car, carl. how did you decide to do this? >> my brother was roommates with him in virginia beach. it will be great to have his name on our windshield and nascar has done a great job of honoring all the service members. it will abe a lot of fun. we'll have kevin and his family hanging out. >> how much does the military appreciate nascar's loyalty not
5:41 am
only to fans, but to drivers? >> all the family members and former veterans all appreciate what we're doing on memorial day. last year was the first time i actually saw the coke 600 and what they do for veterans and fallen heroes like dennis. i thought it was cool when i saw it. i was part of the team last year and i kind of mentioned that i thought it would be a neat opportunity if i could get somebody on it that i knew. >> let's go around to the front of the car and just show folks right up there is the name, miranda. go ahead, kevin. tell us a little about your brother dennis. >> dennis was a stand-out kind of guy. he was taking care of everyone around him, his friends, his family. he was my best friend. he's the oldest brother, so we had a really good relationship. >> what happened? >> his helicopter went down in afghanistan. >> when was that? >> that was september 21st, 2010. >> you never get used to that,
5:42 am
and now there's been a lot of tributes. are you going to have -- tell me about your emotions this weekend. >> honestly, it's actually a beautiful thing for our family. i love having my brother's name out there, i love people knowing what dennis did for everyone, and it's not just about that. it's pretty much everyone. every veteran, everyone that's fallen first, you know. >> you have 40 drivers in it, but carl, you have one thing to do. win. >> we've been running good the last few weeks, so hopefully we can get this car on there with dennis' name on there, get some pictures and champagne flowing, so it should be a good night. >> you have a great jack guy. >> yeah. >> what a beautiful thing for memorial day weekend. we're thinking about your family this weekend. >> thank you very much. >> thanks for coming out, appreciate it. my next guest, a former member of the george bush administration says the 2016 election is bringing out the

has america been consumed by identity politics? >> republican governors and legislatures are erecting one barrier after another that make it harder for black people to vote. it's a blast from the jim crow past. >> we would work on japan and china and mexico because they're taking our jobs, and i want to bring our jobs back. >> the american people are sick and tired of billionaires running our economy and our political lives. >> our next guest says this election has brought out the worst in us, and hillary clinton and bernie sanders are making it worse, and you also have donald trump in there. joining us now is linda chavez who held numerous jobs in the white house under president reagan and bush. i saw your comments when booking
5:47 am
the show and it really stood out. how is this cycle standing out that's really disturbing you? >> i don't mind people talking about political or philosophical differences. there are differences between republicans and democrats. but when we start going to race and ethnicity, i think that's really bad for america. and you just heard hillary clinton. she is explicitly making an appeal on a racial basis. bernie sanders isn't doing it on race. he's a marxist. he's doing it on class. and donald trump, i think, unfortunately, when he starts talking about mexicans as rapists and criminals, et cetera, he is appealing to the kind of white identity movement that is really not a part of what this country is all about. and i think it's bad and it's bad across the board. >> and now you say this is bad, this is a challenge. but, for example, if you want that sector, if you want the hispanic sector, you have to carve that out. if you want the white voter, you have to do that. how do you expect to get these different sections of america without specifically going to things they care about?
5:48 am
>> well, i think you do it on the basis of issues. for example, hispanics traditionally, over the last almost 50 years, have been voting in large numbers for republican conservative candidates. going back to the nixon administration, you had a third of mexican americans voting for richard m. nixon. you had almost half voting for ronald reagan, my old boss. and they weren't being appealed to on the basis of the color of their skin, they were being appealed to on the basis of political philosophy. we need to get back to that. we need to get back to not talking about race and ethnicity. this country was built on the idea that we are from all over the world, we're an immigrant nation, but out of that many came one people. and that's what we've got to get back to. forget about throwing race and ethnicity into this election. it's bad for america. it's not the route we want to go down. >> if you look at what's happening right now, do you feel as though there's more at stake now so people are pulling out the kitchen sink?
5:49 am
or do you think we view politics differently? >> i think we view politics differently. and i think it's become a kind of us against them. i don't like to see that. i can disagree with my democratic friends, my liberal friends, but they're not the enemy. i don't think they're unamerican. i don't think they're unpatriotic. i may think they're wrong, but i don't want to make them somehow the enemy. and i think that we see it on both sides, and you're certainly seeing it on the democratic side. and the democrats have been doing this longer than the republicans. i think they've been playing the race card for a very long time, but i don't like to see people on the conservative side going there, too. i don't like to see demonizing immigrants, i don't like to see the fact that, you know, trump likes to lump everybody together. you know, when he talked in his opening about mexicans, he wasn't talking about illegal immigrants, he said mexicans are rapists or criminals. >> he would say because they are
5:50 am
the ones on our border, and he says that border has to be reinforced. his argument was, i'm not politically correct, i'm just worried about america's safety. but we'll see if there is some tactic behind that. >> and if he's worried about america's safety, look at the facts, and the facts are mexican-born men are less likely to commit violent crimes than american-born men. they have crime rates for violent crimes about the same rates as whites do. and that's, frankly, interesting because it's not true of those born here. >> he's more concerned about people sneaking into the country that don't belong here, not the ones that are here. coming up -- thanks, we're out of time, but great column, you have to read it. linda chavez, thank you very much. parents teaching their infants how to survive in the water. coming up, we've got the tips you need to know to keep your
