10:04 am
children convinced their father to trump lewandowski and manafort won out. the shake-up will signal a change in tone, but trump will be trump. >> certainly the changing. and the tone of the campaign is going to change. i would be surprised if mr. trump is somebody different. he's not going to be. that's what he s.>> reporter: the campaign did not officially describe it as a firing. that was not used in the statement. the campaign is grateful to corey for his hard work and dedication and we wish him the best in the future. however, the inhouse animosity played out on twitter with senior advisor michael, dingdong, the witch is dead. and no public comments from corey lewandowski himself. >> man, you got to wonder what

levanloft, senior economic advisor of obama. he's responsible for the president's efforts to raise the minimum wage and an issue that bernie sanders urged clinton to move on to. elizabeth warren visited hillary clinton's headquarters in brooklyn drivering the following message. >> i have one message for you, don't screw this up. warren is one of eight possible vice-presidential picks that the clinton campaign will vet this week. clinton will attend two fundraisers here in new york in a top hedge manager's fund home. and another by a wall street venture capitalist. she will attend a star studded
10:07 am
fundraiser in harvey winesteins' house hosted by hollywood stars. it is hard to understand how the clinton campaign will recognize wooing elizabeth war withen and bernie sanders on one hand and continuing to raise money on wall street. as the famous bank robber asked. why did you continue to take money from the banks? he said that is where the money is. >> and the clintons certainly know where the money is. thank you. >> the trump campaign shake-up comes as mrs. clinton is up seven points over donald trump. this was released a short time ago. registered voerss and mrs. clinton at 47 be percent and mr. trump at 40 percent in a head-to-head match up. and with the general election turning to over drive. what is the shake-up this
10:08 am
morning mean? the successful run up to the republican primaries and the reports of camping infighting and jokeying intrigues, what does the departure mean for trump candidacy. karl rove knows all he was a chief of staff to george bush p. what happened? >> for inside ares who knew what was going on in trump world told me that there were two competing factions one pie mant fort and lewandowski. he was rarely in the headquarters, only time he was in the trump headquarters was when trump was in the headquarters in trump towers. he travelled with the candidate and that meant upon he was the last person to talk to trump before trump did things.
10:09 am
manafort told him to do a. and sitting there was corey lewandowski and if trump's instincts were to do something lewandowski said do what you think is most comfortable. we'll see what happens going forward here. we had a dysfunctional campaign and see if it is less dysfunctional. most of the time it is an expression of the top. and see if trump needs to think about what he says before he sayses it and focus on clinton and obama than the other republicans. this is one step in the right direction. >> you talk about it is the typical jockeying and infighting for turf and pour in a campaign. you have run a presidential campaign. can you be the campaign manager and also body man? >> you can't. yeah, you can't. you need to have a plan and you need to have a plan of what it
10:10 am
is you are going to say and go and the narrative that you want to build over the course of the campaign and in the last five weeks since securing the nomination of the republican party after the indiana primary and the suspension of ted cruz' campaign, we have not seen anything that donald trump did that was organized and well thought out. maybe that was the infighting. you need to be on the offense and he's been on the defense and flailing. and this hopefully removes the dysfunctionality in the campaign and we'll see if it has a more are taut effort. >> lewandowski had no national experience beside ises the primary campaign. what do you see under manafort
10:11 am
and will make the experience. >> and david plouffe didn't have the experience when they ran the obama campaign. i had no national experience before the strategist of the 22004 campaign. it is a large task. we need to have an idea of what we are going to do and take the valuable commodity and alhoicate. and what states are we allocating it to to and message that we with want the candidate to deliver. and then how can that be planned out to help make sense toward a winning election. and he has not had a good 4 or 5 weeks. and as recently as may 22nd. he was ahead of hillary clinton in the national polls and since
10:12 am
then declining. but she's not going up that much. and he can regain that ground, but he has to have a plan to do it and execute that plan and show discipline and where he focused his time and message. there is only one car rove. you know that karticle. and only one eric shaun. each unique. >> paul ryan would never said he would tell a republican voter to vote against the delegate. he is the chairman of the convention in a couple of weeks. >> he's also the speaker of the house, and he has to lead the republican caucus. and the republican caucus is fractured and what paul ryan is saying, i am for trump, and i hope you will be, too, but i will not pressure you. i thought it was a smart move.
10:13 am
donald trump ought to step back and stop talking about his critics inside of the party. the less than trump talks about it the easier for people to figure out what they are are going to do it without with the scene. the more trump talks about it the more we ask leaders of mcconnell and ryan where they are. the more trump focuses his efforts on clinton and obama the better. he ought to be confident. and when he tells the critics in the republican party to shut up. i can do that if i need be. but it focuses on the difficulties in the republican party. and the less hugh he talks about it and more about obama and clinton the more attacks. >> karl rove; and sitting by the

searring heat fuelling the massive wildfires in several states. four people collapsed and died hiking or mountain biking. it is not only the heat that is a concern, forecasters tracking a tropical moving fast over the gulf of mexico. meteorologist janice dean has more on that. a lot to track down. >> there is a lot to talk about in the extreme weather center. talking about the heat first of all and then we'll get to danielle. 103 in feep iks. and dealing with heat in the southern u.s. hot advisories remain posted. we are going to feel 110 to 120 degrees. so there are the highs today. 120 degrees and a lot of these cities. phoenix, arizona 110- 115.

10:37 am
but as you point out, the end result is the poor communities that need policing the most. >> need officers to act courtesy and within with the law. the black lives matter is a fraud. it shows that the police are the biggest threat to the young black men. the biggest threat is black on black crime. blacks die at a homicide rate higher than whites and hispanics combined. whites alone it is 11 time disparity and that brings in inner city neighborhoods, trying to protect law- abiding residents who demand more policing and wants cops to get out of the car at 1:00 a.m., but
10:38 am
when the media besides fox and president obama say that is wrong. the cops back off. >> we see some in the community trying to dress this. why not more outrage and protest about what you are talking about? >> there is no echo in the mainstream media and racism sells. but this case it is it false. the best protection and agencies that are most dedicated to black lives matter is the police. racism is not a widespread problem. it is easy tore play the victim than address family formation and leaving too many raised without fathers and they are are becoming gang members. in chicago it is a shooting every 43 minutes. >> chicago is unbelievable. the homicide rate is through the roof.
10:39 am
toddlers are shot and killed. what can we do as a society to try to stop this and prevent this and address this issue? >> we have to persuade officers to be be proactive and enforce broken wind withos and low level quality of life issues. that is what law- abiding inner city residents are begging for. i met a cancer amputee said only time she feels safe to pick up her mail is when police are there. that is the voices that are not reported by the new york times. >> what happenses when the crowd have the cell phones and watched. and they are thinking this is documented and even if they are following procedures and guidelines, something can be misinterpreted. >> they are improvises use of
10:40 am
force that don't look bad. but the problem is too many people are resisting arrest. what people need to hear. if there is a cell phone video that does not capture the entire interaction, we have your back and now they don't trust that. >> you think it will be addressed? >> if we have different political leadership for sure. hillary clinton has been continuing the calame against the criminal justice that president obama has been engaged in. and saying they treat blacks and whites differently. >> they can't prove it. >> the tragedy and sadness for our nation and everyone, if we went back to what we saw in the inner city in the '70s and we with were there and know what it is like. >> until we get fathers
10:41 am
policing, it is the second best solution. >> thank you. we want to hear from you. this one about the fbi who are worried about a spike in the crime in our big cities. do you think less aggressive policing is to blame for that. go to fox news.com/"happening now" and you can join the conversation on this vital topic, melissa. >> the supreme court rejecting a challenge on the semiise automatic weapons. a live report from washington is next. and plus, getting a quick change after the cavaliers make basketball history and how the city is getting ready to the convention in july thanks to a flurry of activities. everything you're good at now, you were once... pretty bad at. it's the same for credit. even if you're not good at it now, that's okay.

10:52 am
joe biden delivering a keynote address at the center of new american security at its annual conference in the nation's capital. he's expected to start attacking donald trump's aggressive approach to foreign policy and say that mr. trump has had the attitude and insecurity of a bully showing his remarks and declarations have been empty bluster and our u.s. needs to rely on our foreign partners. this is an aggressive stance by the obama administration to push back against donald trump. we'll monitor the vice president's remarks and keep on that as he continues in his speech this afternoon. here we go. a fox news alert out of orlando. investigators releasing partial transcripts of the phone conversation between omar mateen had with mateen on the night of the terror attack at pulse nightclub but the fbi deleting
10:53 am
part of the dialogue including when the shooter pledged allegiance to isis. a former prosecutor and criminal defense joins us and heather hanson is a trial attorney and is here as well. let's talk to our viewers about why we hear the actual transcripts and tapes. we hear them in the case of celebrities, when something has happened and you hear people calling it on 911 and in the case of the alligator and 2-year-old. this has to do with transparency and people knowing what has gone on, right? what's the value? >> well, the value is it's public information, and the public has a right to know. in fact, in a case like this you can make a foia request, a freedom of information law request and you, the media, me, anybody is entitled to get that information. the problem here is that we're being lied to because the police, the administration gets up and they say, listen, we're not going to release all of it because we have a right not to disclose an ongoing investigation, but that's not the real reason they are keeping
10:54 am
it from us. they are keeping it from us because they don't want to propagate isis. we're not talking about selling t-shirts, talking about a matter of national security, our security and we shouldn't be lied to like this. >> heather in, some ways they are trying to have their cake and eat it, too, in this case because you can see from the press conference when they were releasing the information, what they were really trying to do is address the three hours, and they have gotten a lot of complaints about were people dying in that name? were you not doing anything in that time and they wanted to show in fact they had removed the air conditioner and gone in through different ways and working very hard during that time but at the same time they had the legal right to hold some of it back. it may have backfired though. >> certainly backfired. listen, we would not be talking about as much, the fact that this man pledged allegiance to isis if they had just released the whole tapes, released the entire transcript. by keeping that word out they actually have us talking a lot more about it and giving it a lot more attention. i think it was a misguided decision. however, it was a legal decision. under the law because the investigation is still ongoing.

i mean, look, they don't release the actual transcripts. we don't get to hear it, only get to see it in writing n.part, that's because they don't want to get people more fired up about this. they want to continue the investigation. the same holds true with deciding to redact certain parts of information. i think ultimately what they wanted was not actually what happened because here we are talking about the fact that he pledged allegiance to isis. >> in the beginning, person that came out who i think was from the attorney general's office said that they want to avoid revictimizing, you know, the families in this case, but then when local authorities came out they said we don't want to propagate their violent rhetoric, their cowards. we know what he said though. >> we do know what it is. >> we had already heard the reports so what's the point? it was already out there? >> another big fat lie. nobody wants to revictimize these people, but we are investigating this so it doesn't happen to more people. i mean, come on already. if they -- if they were truly saving us from something, then

don't release any of this until the investigation is complete. >> to play devil's advocate, the exact language is important to the people who do it, and i think we'll come to find that the exact language he used was not specific to isis but perhaps even more specific so that could be part of why they don't want to have other people following suit. ultimately i think we will see the entire transcripts. i think once the investigation is closed freedom of information act. >> are they forced at that point? do they have no choice but to release the whole thing in its entirety? >> not necessarily. someone in the press most likely would be the one to win that type of be a argument but they have would to file a motion to get the information and then the government would say we classified it and then this is why and the courts would decide. >> can be a challenge. >> thanks, melissa. >> we'll be right back.
