"fox & friends" starts right now. >> thanks for joining us. bye. well, good morning to you and your family. it's wednesday, july 13th. i'm ainsley earhardt. we could be hours away from donald trump announcing his running mate but what exactly is he looking for? >> i'm doing this because i want to pick somebody that's going to help me get elected. >> that as we get a look at brand-new swing state polls. >> then presidents bush and obama offer words of comfort to a nation hurting. >> too often we judge other groups by their worst examples while judging ourselves by our

"fox & friends" begins right now. ♪ ♪ national french fry day. any time there's any food-related holiday "fox &

friends" are going to celebrate it. >> i'm convinced, is there a calendar somewhere? >> right. >> they've got a full calendar of food-related holidays. they produce a show and they work hard. >> there's always a reason to have a party. you can always find a good excuse to have a party. today is national french fry day. >> national french fry day? >> plain or ketchup on your french fries? >> ketchup definitely. >> and mayo. >> fried sausages. >> is that a mixture? >> it's a mixture of mayo and ketchup. >> i like the ketchup. let us know this morning, friends and fox news.com. are you ketchup person or do you like them plain? it is wednesday. we are a few days away. we could know donald trump's running mate within the next 24 hours. >> holy smokes, it's about time.
3:03 am
rumors swirling the governor might be at the top of the list after the two team up against hillary clinton. senior national correspondent john roberts is live from indianapolis with the latest. john? >> pete, ainsley, good morning. the one thing donald trump knows how to do and do well is suspend, anticipation, build the sense of drama. he continues to do that with the vice presidential pick. he's going to do it by the end of the week, we're just not exactly sure which day. likely not today. maybe friday is the best day. last night an audition of sorts for indiana governor mike pence. he introduced donald trump at a rally north of here in indianapolis in westfield, indiana. mike pence acting like the attack dog as a vice presidential running mate should going after hillary clinton and bernie sanders. also likening donald trump to ronald regan. >> ronald regan said so eloquently so many years ago, we're tired of being told that a
3:04 am
little intellectual elite in a far distant capitol can plan our lives better for us than we can for ourselves. donald trump gets it. donald trump hears the voice of the american people. >> donald trump continuing to play coy about all of this while giving nothing away telling the crowd last night that mike pence has done a good job as governor of indiana but other than that playing his cards very close to his vest. listen to what trump said about pence last night. >> i often joke, you'll be calling up mike pence. i don't know he's going to be a governor, your vice president, who the hell knows. i don't know if he's going to be governor, vice president. >> reporter: trump did tell "the wall street journal" though in addition to looking for somebody who can help out with the political process, he does want someone who can play that role.
3:05 am
after the list was narrowed down to three people, mike pence, newt gingrich and chris christie of new jersey, donald trump told bill o'reilly last night that, well, i'm still considering jeff sessions. who knows what his thinking is. ainsley, only donald trump knows and only he will make the decision as to who is going to run with him for the general election. >> unbelievable. certainly john roberts, we certainly hope he knows a few days short of the convention. and he actually sat down with bill o'reilly last night as john was mentioning. he says -- bill was saying, he's the guy who sits next to you at the baseball game. if you tell me you're not sure, i'll believe you. listen. >> do you know who it is right now? >> well, i have a pretty good idea. we have it down to five people. >> no. no. you have a good idea. >> who i'm thinking about. i have a fairly decent idea. >> at that tells me a guy who sat next to you at yankees stadium over the years, that you know who it's going to be.
3:06 am
okay. >> are people going to be surprised or is it one of the people that have been bantered around and predicted? >> well, bill, i'm not doing this for surprises. i'm not doing this for games. i'm doing this because i want to pick somebody who's going to help me get elected. >> newt gingrich? >> it's interesting so this game trump -- the argument here is he's throwing out all of these traditional ways of picking a vice president. is it someone who's going to help you in a swing state? >> do people know who this individual is? that's the big one. i was asking people last night. do you know who mike pence is, do you know who jeff sessions is? do you know who newt gingrich is? if you talk to people who don't know much about politics, many people don't know those names. >> it begs the question, does name recognition matter. apparently donald trump's been doing the same thing, asking audiences and people, who do you like? this is a guy who famously is very in touch with the pulse of the american people.
3:07 am
i don't think people want a novelty pick for a hail mary. you do see it narrowed down to a conservative like pence, a night fighter like newt gingrich. >> right. >> it will be very interesting to see. >> clearly close. >> it's nice to know that he is spending a lot of times with these individuals to see who he has chemistry with, who he likes, what policies he has in common. i like the fact that he's waiting until the last minute giving everybody a fair shot. >> he's a show man, too. >> of course. >> he knows how to sell it. >> you know at the end of the day are you going to want to pick somebody that's going to up stage donald trump. >> that's not possible. >> it will be interesting. chris christie has the potentialing to do that on stage. he certainly has that -- >> similar personalities. >> personality. incredibly articulate. meanwhile, breaking news. >> brand-new poll out just this morning, literally minutes ago. brand-new quinnipiac university poll. swing states. check out the numbers first here
3:08 am
in florida. donald trump has really flipped the switch. this is just a month ago in june. he was behind 47/39. >> that's the largest of the three big swing states. that's big. and because these are important swing states because since 1960 no candidate's ever won the race without taking two of these three states. >> take a look at ohio here, bell weather states. so goes ohio, so goes the nation. of course, that's where cleveland at the rnc just in a few short days away. look at this. pennsylvania, donald trump at 43 to hillary clinton's 41. that is huge in upstate pennsylvania and an area traditionally was really traditional republican lines. you can look back with election after election after election. northern pennsylvania is -- always sort of went right down the line for the traditional republican candidate. this is totally flipped the switch. if you drive through northern pennsylvania right now you see trump signs all over the place. >> really?
3:09 am
really. >> i don't know if we can put the florida poll back up. you can't underscore how important that number is. in florida and pennsylvania he's clearly holding ground. that's an 11 point swing from down 8 to up three in a state you literally have to win. that's 29 electoral votes. there's no path to the white house for republicans that doesn't go through florida. >> according to quinnipiac trump was beating hillary. in june it looked like hillary was beating trump in the swing states. now trump is beating hillary. trump's winning. just to sum that up in florida and in pennsylvania and they're both tied in the state of ohio. >> i'm going to coin this. maybe the brexit bump. they're saying, hey, he's steadied the ship. i know what's going on in this country is not what i want. >> i think three things. i think brexit, because of terrorism that's very important to the trump supporters, making sure -- not terrorism itself but fighting terrorism and i think
3:10 am
what was the last one? >> dallas. what's going on in law and order. >> absolutely. i was going to say bernie sanders. >> we should be very interested in these polls. this is a very important distinct shup on honesty. hillary clinton has now flipped the switch from donald trump on the honesty question. >> really? interesting. ew weeks. >> we'll break down these polls a little bit later. breaking on "fox & friends," a big switch in some of these swing states. let's hand it over to heather who has some more headlines for us. >> i do. good morning. clayton, great to see you back here with us. good morning to all of you. somber news right now because it was a sad day in dallas as funerals for the murdered police officers will now begin today. today d.a.r.t. officer brent thompson and michael smith will be laid to rest. the final farewells come after the final days passed. a memorial service with
3:11 am
president obama and george w. bush paid their respects. >> prepared or could be prepared for an ambush by hatred and malice. the shock of this evil still has not faded. >> i understand how americans are feeling, but, dallas, i'm here to say we must reject such despair. i'm here to insist that we are not as divided as we seem. >> well, on a day dedicated to mourning those officers killed, president obama also sparking a bit of outrage. many are upset that he used that platform to push for gun control. listen. >> we flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book. >> well, every seat was filled at that memorial except these five seats that honor the slain heroes. you can see the folded flags
3:12 am
right there on their seats as well. well, a plot to murder police officers in baton rouge has now been shut down and now police are hunting for a fifth suspect. these three were arrested along with a boy who was just 13 years old. they're accused of robbing a pawn shop and then planning to use the stolen guns and ammo to kill police officers. all are now facing felony weapons charges but no charges yet for nair plot. tensions in baton rouge reaching a boiling point of the shooting of alton sterling. police in that area are now wearing riot gear. baseball's best taking the field for the mid summer classic. american league topping them for a 4-2. it was a bit of outrage before the game that's stealing the spotlight today. a canadian singer reworking canada's national anthem to include the phrase all lives matter.

take a listen ♪ brotherhood all life matter to the brave ♪ >> sounds kind of nice. well, the tenor is now apologizing calling it, quote, a lone wolf incident because none of the other singers knew it was going to happen. those are your headlines. i'll see you back here. >> heather, thanks so much. more information about the quinn po quinnipiac polls. these are the numbers. these are the specific numbers where hillary clinton had certainly dropped in some of these is swing states, but where quinnipiac is saying she had her biggest hit was in the honesty question. >> yeah. >> that's where quinnipiac is seeing the shift in much of these swing states. >> this is the private server e-mail month as well that's really hit her hard. >> right. been a rough month for her. martha stewart can make a cake or decorate a home, but did you know that she can rip millennials as well. wait until you hear what she said about that younger

states. while donald trump is busy insulting mexicans and muslims and women and african-americans and our veterans, hillary clinton understands that our diversity is one of our greatest strengths. >> bernie sanders finally throwing his support behind hillary clinton. the pair immediately teaming up to go after donald trump, but will sanders endorsement do anything to help hillary clinton. here to discuss this is pollster and washington examiner columnist kristen soltin. >> she certainly has to be glad to have the democratic primary behind her at this point. bernie sanders has dragged his feet in coming out to endorse her. in large part because much of what hillary clinton stands for is pretty opposed to what bernie sanders stands for. throughout the primary hillary clinton wanted to say there
3:19 am
wasn't that much daylight between them, she and bernie sanders were on the same page on things like reforming wall street. a lot of sanders supporters have questions about hillary clinton. as she moves into the convention she's got to be glad to finally have this nomination without sort of any distractions in the way. >> the younger generation likes bernie and they're not necessarily putting their support behind hillary. let me read you this tweet that donald trump wrote after that endorsement. he said, i am somewhat surprised that bernie sanders was not true to himself and his supporters. they are not happy that he is selling out. is he selling out? >> well, you heard when bernie sanders was giving this endorsement, at the same time that he was giving some praise to hillary clinton he was condemning donald trump and for a lot of folks that are bernie sanders supporters, that may be the question they're facing. i may not like hillary clinton but would i vote for her just to stop donald trump? that seemed to be a little bit of how bernie sanders was trying to present his message there. you may not like hillary.
3:20 am
i think she's okay. but really she's better than trump. that seems to be the way that you'll get most of these bernie supporters finally coming around to her. >> who on that list is going to give trump the bump. >> i think newt gingrich is the person on the list most likely to create the most buzz. he's somebody that's been a known name in american politics for decades. he's somebody that certainly knows how to command the spotlight and shake things up in a way kind of similar to what donald trump's been doing the last few months. i think gingrich is the most likely to make headlines or mike pence, the governor of indiana would be the safest pick. he's not somebody who's going to grab the spotlight but he is somebody who has a track record of running a state in the midwest, a state that certainly republicans would like to hang on to this november and he's somebody who's been out on the trail and has a good relationship with trump. >> endorsed ted cruz and conservative. thanks so much, kristen, for being here. great to see you. our next guest is proof as

3:25 am
those who legally own guns can have them in the area around the convention. should be interesting. clayton? >> thanks, pete. our next guest proves fiction can become reality. daniel silva's brand new book "the black widow." joining us now is the author of "black widow" daniel silva. congrats. looking at the charts it's number one, your book on the itunes charts and amazon as well. congrats for that. >> thank you. i started last july and at that point isis was really just a regional problem. it was active obviously in syria and iraq and it carried out attacks regionally. i felt it was only a matter of time before they attacked the west and, you know, look at the intelligence and the flow of
3:26 am
armed fighters from france and belgium who went to syria and those guys going back. seemed to me france was likely to be the first target and i started working on the book and low and behold in november it all came true. and it was shocking enough to me. you know, it was sort of the french 9/11. >> right. >> it was almost tantamount to writing a novel about airplanes flying into the world trade center before 9/11. it gave me a moment. should i finish this book or should i set it aside and write something differently, different? i chose to finish it and the result is "the black widow." >> are you surprised at all by the west's response to this? because people often say, we don't know what isis is doing. we don't know what their motivation is, but they're pretty clear. >> all you have to do is actually read what they're saying. i think it's wise to take them at their word, okay? all you have to do is read their magazines, read their postings, look at what they were doing
3:27 am
and, you know, they -- they were clearly going to lash out at some point. and i have to say that i think that the debate between isis directed and isis inspired, it's really a distinction without a difference. isis is going to operate with a new paradigm. lone wolf attacks like in istanbul. because we haven't seen a large scale terror spectacular from them doesn't mean they don't have one in the works or they don't have that capability or that desire. we should probably assume that they do want to do something like that. >> so this is your 16th novel now? >> this is my 19th novel. >> 19 of 16. >> within the series featuring gabriel alani, a syrian intelligence officer. i show that in the modern world intelligence services really have to function together and i create a partnership between french intelligence and israeli
3:28 am
intelligence to track down this network and penetrate the network that is responsible for these attacks in france. what you do is we feed an agent into that network. we create a recruit and get that person inside the network and one of the things i deal with in the book is that isis has this extraordinary ability as pete knows to, in fact, go dark with their communications. we really can't monitor them the way we could with al qaeda. they've learned to adapt. i think that we've got to get with human sources. that's something i do in this book. >> using technology which is something you said. you write all of your books on a legal pad? >> i do. i prefer to write longhand. i like the pencil better than the pen. i do lie on the floor and write. when i finish a book like "the black widow," it's a pretty hefty book. i have a little skyscraper of legal pads like this. we could lay it out on the floor
3:29 am
and most of it would be in longhand. >> daniel, they have computers now. >> you're pretty high tech. >> congrats on the book. the book is called "the black widow." it's out now and number one on just about every chart. great to see you. >> thank you so much. you bet. coming up on the show, being haled as one of president obama's best speeches and then he said this. >> we flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book. >> herman cain reacts to that in the brand-new swing state polls. herman cain is here when we show you trump ahead in the polls, you won't believe it. ruth bader ginsburg not shy on her opinion for donald trump. she calls him a faker. you know donald this morning, he feels compelled to respond. first, happy birthday to actor harrison ford. he is 72 today. hans solo.

[heartbeat] yesterday trump actually said that his vice presidential running mate won't matter because that person never really winds up helping the candidate anyway. you know he's going to use those exact same words when introducing his running mate at the convention. who's that person? he'll be a footnote in history at best. please welcome, what's his face.

>> long history of people making fun of the vice presidency. >> i think it would be the best job. less stress. you get to go to all the dinners, parties. >> not so much. >> talk vice presidency in just a moment. we want to bring in former presidential candidate herman cain because -- good to see you, sir. >> good morning. >> we have some brand-new quinnipiac swing state polls out. >> thank you. >> they came in with the headline from quinnipiac. clinton losing on honesty in florida, pennsylvania and ohio. florida, ohio and pennsylvania, a big drop for hillary clinton. are you surprised by that? >> no, i'm not, and that's because donald trump's substance is finally starting to cut through and hillary clinton's shallowness is also starting to emerge. she is the free stuff candidate disguised as wanting to help people but that's not coming through. donald trump's substance is
3:35 am
what's finally starting to emerge. >> mr. cain, in florida the swing is most dramatic, and amongst independents it's a 22 point swing. hillary clinton's the under card on that number, up by 13 points, now she's down by 9 amongst independents. what are independents hearing from donald trump that they weren't before or seeing in hillary clinton? >> they're hearing from donald trump that he wants to dramatically change the tax code. they're hearing that he is committed to rebuilding the military and fixing the va system. they are hearing clearly now that he wants to repeal and replace obamacare. he wants to allow the energy sector in this country to do its thing so we can truly become energy independent. those are the things that are starting to come through as well as the fact that donald trump is a listener and he is a leader. i think that's what's drawing a lot of independents over. totally opposite of hillary clinton. >> yeah. donald trump has said he needs
3:36 am
an attack dog when he picks his vice presidential candidate. we're going to find out by the end of the week who that's going to be. it looks like he's narrowed it down to newt gingrich and mike pence. do you have a choice there? who would you pick? >> i would pick newt gingrich because newt gingrich can be an attack dog and he is also a smart dog. and here's why. newt has the unique perspective of having been an insider and an outsider and, remember, the contract with america that a lot of young people don't even know about back in the early 1990s, newt gingrich led that and they were very successful with the contract with america. i believe by some accounts they accomplished eight out of ten items on the contract with america which knows he understands how to connect with the american people. that's the smart dog part. attack dog part, he is so knowledgeable of both domestic
3:37 am
and international issues, he can attack people with the facts instead of just with erroneous statements like hillary clinton is doing. that's why i think newt is uniquely qualified to serve both of those roles and he could do them very effectively. >> herman cain's prediction. i think you're on to something here. all right. we want to talk about the president, the president in dallas yesterday attending a memorial service and if you look at the responses, one of his best speeches of his presidency. until he said this comment that had a lot of people raising their eyebrows. we'll play it and get your response. listen. >> we flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book and then we tell the police, you're a social worker. you're the parents. you're the teacher. you're the drug counselor.
3:38 am
>> mr. cain, your thoughts on the president's comments yesterday? >> if you take a balloon and you put air in it, you reach a point where if you put too much air in it, it will burst. the president poliliticized wha was a great speech up to that point. that was no time or place to politicize guns or violence in this country. he should have just stayed within the context of a memorial service for five of our heroes. i was disappointed when he got to that point and he continued. i believe a lot of people felt the same way. you don't have to politicize everything, but this president can't stop himself. a lot of people are seeing that. >> herman cain, straight shooter always. i think you're spot on. we appreciate you joining us. >> thank you. >> my pleasure. >> he can't help himself. >> monumental moment. >> when you hear a great speech
3:39 am
and then all of a sudden it gets political in the wrong situation. he has a great point. this is a memorial service for five police officers that lost their lives. >> we have some guests coming up on the show. we'll get more reaction. heather standing by with a look at today's headlines. >> good morning. great to see you. this story is getting a whole lot of attention. have you followed what supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg said about donald trump? she is now doubling down on her war of words with the presumptive republican nominee. she said, quote, he is a faker. he has no con since tense si about him. he says whatever comes into his head at the moment. elreally has an ego. donald trump firing back saying, quote, justice ginsburg of the u.s. supreme court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me. her mind is shot, resign. she's 83 years old. i expect we're going to hear a

department of veterans affairs, but little has been done to fix the problems. a new congressional report says the department has profound deficienci deficiencies. congress has a number of proposed bills to fix the problem. no major reform has been passed since 2014. this week as we look at the va and its current status, all week long we're asking why is it so difficult to pass legislation that will overhaul the va? here as part of this week-long series is dan caldwell. he's with concerned veterans for american. thanks for joining us. straight out, why is it so difficult to make things change at the va? >> well, pete, we have something called the iron triangle which consists of the va bureaucracy which has over 350,000 employees and $180 billion. that's a powerful force. big government unions like the american federation for government employees. sadly, the washington based leadership of many veteran groups. not their local leadership, not
3:47 am
the local members but the washington based leadership who don't believe veterans should have the choice of where they get their health coverage with their va benefits. unfortunately, all of those groups come together to protect the status quo and they pressure the white house to block and not enact meaningful reform. >> myself included, members of the veterans organizations, you want to believe they're out there watchdogging. what has happened? why do certain groups oppose the certain groups that they would want, americans want, vets want? why are they opposing those types of things? >> again, i want to be clear. it's the washington based leadership. just like any other special interest group. once they're here in the bubble in d.c., they want to protect the status quo and they want to protect access. you have groups sadly like the american legion, i'm a member of, i know you're a member of that have staff that want to go to things like the white house easter egg roll, they want to have meetings with the president and they benefit from the status
3:48 am
quo in that regard. when they rock the boat too much they lose that access. that is a big thing for them and that's why they are looking to block these reforms. >> sure. dan, donald trump rolled out his va reform plan two days ago calling secretary clinton the secretary of the status quo. what needs to -- i mean, what really needs to happen? these are gutt level. what is the solution? and is what donald trump proposed, real choice accountability, would that make it happen? >> those are great concepts. more choice for veterans to use their va benefits in the private sector and more accountability for bad va employees. those are great concepts. he needs to flesh it out more. there's a great model right now in congress. there was draft legislative proposal introduced called caring for our heroes in the 21st century act. i hope donald trump and all the other candidates use that for a real guide of what the va should look like. it's an outstanding piece of legislation. >> there are bills there pending
3:49 am
ready to go that would help solve this problem. >> absolutely. >> i know you and cv are hard at work. >> thank you, pete. you keep up the hard work, too. >> will do. ultimately it's a fight. you have to fight the status quo to make something happen. we'll all be a part of it. >> absolutely. still ahead. she didn't get indicted, but should hillary clinton lose her security clearance? security chairman congressman michael mccaul has started a petition to make it happen. he joins us live. you want fries? you want fries with your "fox & friends"? today the answer is, yes. we're celebrating as you should, too. national french fry day on the plaza. my ketchup and mayo sauce.

"fox & friends" hour 2 starts right now. we have a fox news alert for you. we have some new polls that have just come out. these are the latest quinnipiac polls and it looks like donald trump is winning in the swing states, at least the majority of them. he's winning in florida, pennsylvania and they're tied in ohio. >> this is a pretty big turn for donald trump, and, of course, the quinnipiac headline on their website as they released these
4:02 am
polls was honesty was the core issue here, and assuming some of these big swing states swing for hillary and donald trump. three points in ohio, big swing there, and also in pennsylvania. >> we oftentimes see national polls. there's pennsylvania and he's gained three points there. you can't dismiss florida, ohio and pennsylvania which are all within the margin of error, and a massive swing in florida i think will be the big headline here. a 22-point swing away from hillary clinton toward donald trump. she led significantly in that group. now she's behind significantly. a tough month for hillary clinton. you had all the e-mail, the server. a lot of things came down, and people are seeing through it. >> in pennsylvania, it was interesting to be there. i was in northeastern pennsylvania just the other day in an area that's traditionally establishment republican. they have a long history of sticking with the establishment in northeastern pennsylvania. not the case anymore. you drive up through
4:03 am
northeastern pennsylvania, yard signs for donald trump everywhere, t-shirts in shore windows -- >> why did that change? >> if you look at the data, interestingly, out of northeastern pennsylvania, where they had long tied themselves to certain candidates, they felt lied to by the establishment. >> it's exactly right. in the press release for the poll, by large margin, voters agree the old way of doing things no longer works and we need radical change. that's why when donald trump calls hillary clinton a status quo, that's what you're getting. >> the establishment republicans have told them they're fighting you. donald trump's message of, they've lied to you, is resonating with them. >> no president has ever within since 1963 without taking two of these three states. the vp picks are on. speculation as to who donald

4:05 am
here's one of them. >> we're for a change in this state. we're ready to put a fighter, a builder, and a patriot in the oval office of the united states of america! we're ready for donald trump to be our next president! [ cheers and applause ] >> you know, donald trump understands the frustrations and the hopes of the american people like no other american leader in my lifetime since ronald reagan. >> donald trump, meantime, not ready to say "you're hired" just yet. he's playing things very coy while he was praising governor mike pence to the crowd last night in westfield. he was not ready to say yet whether he's going to be the running mate. listen to what trump said. >> i often joke, you'll be calling up mike pence. i don't know whether he's going to be your governor or your vice president, who the hell knows. >> reporter: i don't know if he's going to be your governor, your vice president, who the hell knows.
4:06 am
only donald trump can say that in front of a crowd. he's here in indianapolis this morning. he's doing an interview with brett barrett. it will run tonight. he has dates in the next few days, and we believe the announcement will come friday. >> he's throwing out the old rule book. the old rule book was where could you get a bump? in what state could we get a vp that will give us a bump? maybe it's florida, maybe it's ohio? all out the window this time. >> he's not doing it the way it's always been done, and a lot of people like that. we had herman cain on earlier, and here's what he said. >> i would pick newt gingrich
4:07 am
because he's a smart dog. newt has the unique perspective of having been an insider and an outsider. he understands how to connect with the american people. that's the smart dog part. attack dog part, he is so knowledgeable of both domestic and international issues, he can attack people with the facts instead of just with erroneous statements like hillary clinton is doing. >> to that case, it would be a governing pick as well as a smart campaign pick, because obviously he's been competent on both sides, gingrich has. >> he said he's going to pick someone who has political experience. clearly he has a lot of political experience. he's been doing this most of his life. he's very smart. he's a great orator, and a lot of people know who he is. name recognition is important. >> let us know your thoughts on

that memorial service that had every seat filled except these five, as you can see them right there with the folded flags, honoring those fallen heroes. a plot to murder police officers in baton rouge, louisiana has now been shut down, and now police are searching for a fifth suspect. these three were arrested overnight along with a boy just 13 years old. they are accused of robbing a pawn shop and planning to use the stolen guns and ammunition to kill police officers. all are now facing felony weapons charges, but no charges yet for that plot itself. tensions in baton rouge have reached a boiling point following the shooting death of alton sterling by police officers. police officers there, we're told, are now wearing riot gear. overseas now, after six years and david cameron steps down today, we're about to take a live look inside parliament and that is where, right now,

well, as we now know, no charges will be filed against hillary clinton for being careless with her e h-mails, bu now the public and congress are working to get her security clearance taken away. how would that work? michael mccaul started a petition to make that happen, and he joins us now. mr. chairman, how would you go about blocking a security clearance for hillary clinton through congress? >> the fbi director said she exercised extreme carelessness in her handling of classified information, so we simply introduced a bill, legislation, that if you exercise extreme carelessness rather than gross negligence, your security
4:17 am
clearance will be revoked or any application will be denied. it's as simple as that. i think it sends a strong message to the community out there who do hold security clearances as to what the standard really is. you know, if mrs. clinton was still in the state department, she would have been not only reprimanded but her security clearance most likely would have been revoked and we possibly would have been talking about her termination from the state department of secretary rather than her coronation now as the nominee for the democratic party. >> just to get back to the particulars of the bill, obviously you can't target a bill on one individual, but you would be rewording the federal code as far as what the definition is so as to fit exactly what she did or others like her would do. >> right, taking what the fbi director said she did, which i believe -- it's a broader issue than this as well. she compromised, as the fbi director said, possibly some of the top, most sensitive programs
4:18 am
in the federal government. she had the top diplomat possibly compromising top classified information to our top adversaries. i find that deeply disturbing. it is, in my judgment, gross negligence, and i think she put national security at stake here. >> of course, huge national security implications of sources and methods of others who are actively in the field for our national security. what are you hearing in the homeland security about this double standard, about the fact that for her this gross negligence and extreme carelessness, she was able to get away with, but your rank and file member of the military or the state department, if they did anything near that, they would be fried for it. is there a way to close the gap on that, or is that just a leadership issue? >> i think the bill san attemis attempt to close the gap but leadership is a part of this. it's a double standard. the clintons have had a double standard for decades now, and they demonstrated once again the law doesn't apply to them, they

"it should go without saying that all lives matter. i should no more tell my children to succumb to their skin color and supposed disadvantages than any parent whose offspring may be subject to any other form of adversity. i will tell them, however, their color will not define them. only in christ do the temporal
4:26 am
distinctions between us fade, as our oneness in him takes precedence over our color, crede and culture. >> the book came out last year, but here we are talking about the same thing, and as a believer, we understand that our unity in christ is what supercedes our natural distinctions. we all see each other through different lenses. i see you and you see me, and we don't have the same earth experiences. as believers we understand that spiritually, god created us equally, and when we can see each other through that lens, it can remove some of the bias, but there are still issues we have to address. there are big differences in race, and it's obvious when you turn on the television and see the protests and other things happening. >> it seems like we talk more and more about seeing race and drawing distinctions and differentiating as opposed to finding that commonality. is there a political incentive for people? why does that happen? why are we driving wedges?
4:27 am
>> i think for some people there is a political incentive. there is profit to be made when there is strife. we don't report when things are okay, we report when things are different. but on both side, i think there is an acknowledgment that has to take place. the only way you have true healing in any discussion or any argument is when one side acknowledges the hurt and pain of another, and any other has the ability to hurt the other side. when it comes to race, we put our guard up, we defend each other, and nothing really gets done. >> like tim tebow, you'll speak about your faith and don't care what other people think. you look at the charleston shooting, orlando, what happened in dallas. you say it's not a skin problem, it's a sin problem. what do you mean? >> ultimately we were all born with this issue of sin. it manifests itself in different ways, in jealousy, in pride, in racism.
4:28 am
the ultimate issue is a spiritual problem we all have that has to be dealt with with the blood of christ. that being said, the skin obviously is what we see, and we do have race issues in this country. we always have and they haven't gone anywhere. the laws have changed, we have equality, we can sit together on a couch and talk freely, but still there are differences in our opinions and a wedge has been driven between us, and that has to be addressed. things are much better than they were before, clearly, and i'm so grateful for that. i look at my kids. i have five children. my goal for them is they live in a country in the united states where race is even less of an issue, where people are seen as humans where there's not these problems. >> what are you telling your kid, though? that's a big part of the conversation, and on the right, conservative rz sayis are sayin the absence of strong fathers are the problem. >> when you look at the climate of america, it's very true. the father is the leader of the
4:29 am
household, the father instills a lot of identity in their children. i'm honest with my children. i tell them what happened when i see these things on tv, but you talk about parents. it's our job as parents, white parents, black parents, that their kids have an issue to be dealt with, and because of their own faults, there is no way they can look at someone else and say they're better than anyone because of their skin color, economic status or anything else. our children are the ones that have to take this country forward, and my hope is that one day our children meet and they don't have the same issues. >> there's been some controversy, though. a lot of people who are saying all lives matter, they're walking that back. what has been the reaction with you saying that? >> the thing is, it should go without saying, obviously, all lives matter. the issue is that all lives matter is usually a response to someone saying black lives matter. i sometimes think maybe they should have said black lives matter, too. that's really what's being said. the outcry is that historically and presently the feeling is
4:30 am
that black lives don't matter as much as white lives because we don't see the same type of things happening to them. so it's not a matter of saying black lives matter more than anyone else, it's kind of saying, you know what? black lives matter as well. when the response is all lives matter, it seems disingenuous, it seems insulting, it seems very callous, but again, it's a response to what is being perceived as maybe a direct insult to white people by saying black lives matter, and that's not the case at all. >> what a powerful statement. it was a real pleasure having you on the show this morning. we need to hear this call in the country right now. the book is called "under our skin." the great benjamin watson. >> i want to make the announcement you just made my fantasy football team. >> how many weeks until training camp? >> we have two weeks. time is running short. it's like the last two weeks where you run around with the family, do everything you want to do, come here for a couple days and see you guys and get back to the family.

this is pretty funny. apparently over in china the official state media has been labeling donald trump as, quote, a celebrity potato. i kind of understand why. i mean, just take a look at one of trump's latest speeches. >> we're going to win so much. we're going to make america great again! >> that's pretty good, i like that. >> if this whole presidential thing doesn't work out for donald trump, he has a career in voice acting for the potato heads. >> you have kid. are they still on the market? >> they are. now they have a batman and superman potatohead as well. >> heather is over there saying yes. your kids have them? >> we have them and they have all these different parts and they're all strewn about the house. >> the mustache is in one room, the lips in another. >> we love toys with lots of pieces. >> don't say toys with pieces or that make music.
4:36 am
got a couple headlines i want to bring you right now. are you following this story? this is really something else. donald trump has a supreme critic, and she is doubling down in a war of words with the presumptive republican nominee. an unaired interview with ruth bader ginsburg said, quote, he is a faker. he has no consistency about him. he says whatever comes into his head at the moment. he really has an ego. she also said if he is elected, she will move overseas. >> he tweeted back, justice ginsburg of the u.s. supreme court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me. her mind is shot -- resign! bet we hear about that later in the day. the state department funneled nearly $350,000 to an anti-israel group who was working to oust prime minister
4:37 am
benjamin ynetanyahu. they allegedly ignored warnings that money going to that group, instead of backing peace allegations it was intended for, the party said it didn't do anything wrong. harry reid is trying to get debbie wasserman schultz fired. he is apparently taking matters into his own hands to try to oust the head of the democratic national committee. sources tell us reid made moves behind the scenes to get her replaced by dick durbin, but nothing came of it, and schultz remains in her chair at least until november. jennifer aniston not pregnant, and she said she is sick of the media gossiping about her figure. ♪ >> you know, because we are always looking for excuses to show you women in bikinis -- i know you're all thanking me --

thanks, heather, for that this morning -- the actress says she's fed up with those rumors and a magazine cover like this. she slams what she says is the injustification of women and the scrutiny of women's bodies. she said, quote, we don't need to be married or mothers to be complete. we get to determine our own happily ever after for ourselves. and those are your headlines. let's head outside to maria malena. she has the weather for us. hi, maria. >> hi, heather, good to see you. we're tracking a storm system that is continuing to produce a lot of heavy rain and severe weather across portions of the plains and also parts of the upper midwest. we've already seen reported tornadoes and also some significant flash flooding that's been occurring across states like wisconsin and minnesota in the last few days, and today we could see more of that action with large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes possible from places like kansas extend sbing into ps

4:40 am
towards a far more national security concerned election, if you look at san bernardino, orlando and now dallas, there is this block of voters who really understand about safety or are concerned about it. why? because they're the mothers. they're the people who look after our children. so where do they stand on these issues of national security could be a very important tipping point for november. >> you know, they used to be called soccer moms. now if we go to a soccer game, if we go to a concert, soft targets. we're worried about that. is that their main concern? >> absolutely. if you just look at the track record of what the jihadis, the terrorists are doing in the last two years since the islamic state was declared, what are they focusing on? large concentrations of unarmed civilians, whether it's at an airport, a rock concert, a restaurant, and, of course, we see this coming to life in america. and now we have -- on top of

that, we have dallas. how much of this will be an issue in the election and where do our american mothers stand on that? >> where do they stand on the gun issue? >> we have some fox polling we're going to talk about with our moms later. if you add it up, there are 38% very concerned about the gun issue, and another 38% that are very concerned. 30% of the young elective have a do about guns and bout what are will it be safer to have gun legislation? that's a big question. >> we organized a group of six security moms we're going to have on the show. what, a week and a half ago we were on with them. we were talking about orlando. here we are again and now we're talking about dallas. >> this is what i want to talk to them about. it's going to be fascinating. have we arrived at some kind of watershed? we said everything changed with newtown, remember? then we said everything changed with san bernardino. did it really? what about last week in dallas?
4:42 am
is this going to be at the forefront of everybody's minds? will they vote pocket books or national security? i think it's a good question. >> we'll be talking to those six security moms coming up. they're all from different walks of life and we'll find out what their concerns are. that will be later in the show. thank you for being with us. >> my pleasure. donald trump has been making this promise for more than a year. >> we will build a wall, believe me, 100%, we're building a wall. if i win, we're building a wall. we'll have an amazing border. >> we're going to build a wall, don't worry. who is going to pay for the wall? who is going to pay? >> despite his critics' best efforts, this morning he is one step closer to that goal. we're live in cleveland to explain that, coming up next. and republicans want to bring back eric holder? what? with advil, you'll ask what muscle pain?

4:48 am
isn't putting a whole lot of pressure on them to include specific things in the platform, he just wants the committee to put something together he can stand behind. and now they are following his lead. the author of the amendment to build the border wall now showed us exactly what it says. it says, quote, we support building a wall along our southern border and protecting all ports of entry. the border wall must cover the entirety of the southern border and must be sufficient to stop both vehicular and pedestrian traffic. now, there is nothing in there about making mexico pay for the wall, but the chairman of the party, ryan priebus, tells us why it's important to have it in. >> just changing the word from fence to wall is what they did, and maybe it was a little hat tip to donald trump on that issue, and that's fine. it's something that the parties had in the platform for a long time. >> reporter: now, most of the platform committee has gone home for a few days.
4:49 am
they'll return to cleveland at the beginning of next week to officially vote to adopt the document. now the focus is on the rules committee. that is the place that some delegates plan to stage a revolt against trump by unbinding themselves, trying to unbind themselves even if he won their state. we have spoken to the colorado delegate trying to organize this mini revolt. she claims that they've got enough support and that people just haven't been coming forward because they don't want to lose their credentials at the convention, but officials say they're very skeptical of that. >> okay. a big, beautiful wall. thanks, pete. coming up, are you always running late? >> never be late for a plane way girl. the girl runs like a girl with little steps and the arms flailing out. if you want to make this plane, you have to run like a man! get your knees up! >> is that normal or nuts? dr. keith ablow with his diagnosis, next.

and welcome back this morning. furious republicans still demanding answers after attorney general loretta lynch dodged their questions on capitol hill yesterday. >> general lynch, who made the decision that no charges would be brought against secretary clinton? >> i had determined that i would accept the recommendation of the team and made that known. >> so who ultimately made the decision? >> i made that known and then when the recommendation was given to me, i did accept that recommendation. >> did you ultimately make that decision or did director comey? >> director comey was part of the team. >> so who made that decision? >> the team consisted of director comey and others. >> who made the decision? >> as i indicated before, i previously cited that i would accept their recommendation. >> so what happens now? congressman jim jordan was asking those tough questions. congressman, nice to have you here this morning. >> good to be with you. >> do you feel you got answers to your questions?
5:19 am
>> i don't think anybody did, especially on the republican side, and anybody who happened to tune into that, i think, felt the same way. we established that they treated this case completely different by the very fact that the attorney general announces ahead of time she's going to follow the recommendation. so i'm going to follow the recommendations even though i don't know what they are. she indicated under oath yesterday that she had never done that in all her time as attorney general with any other case. so that in and of itself shows that he treated this case different, not to mention all the other facts, that she met with the president of the subject of the investigation on a tarmac in phoenix, that this was the former first lady, the former secretary of state, the former senator of nominee for president. that's where it looks like they gave this case different treatment, and the law says everyone should be treated equally and not because you're politically connected. >> five days ago we had the former president on the tarmac meeting with the attorney general.
5:20 am
did she address those concerns? the day afterward, she said if she could walk it back, she would never do it again. >> no, she said it was happenstance, they just happened to meet. i'll let the american people decide for themselves. it sure looks kind of strange when you're meeting with the husband of the subject of the investigation, you meet with him five days before they come out with the recommendations, when the fbi recommends what to do, and frankly, before they had even talked with, interviewed and done a deposition of secretary clinton. so that all looks pretty suspect. the other thing i think, clayton, is important. remember, secretary clinton testified under oath last october in front of the benghazi committee. and she made several false statements there. when presented with this, director comey said he didn't even look at her transcript. so think about this. the subject of the investigation is testifying to congress under oath and she's asked about the very subject matter you're investigating, namely her e-mail situation, and he doesn't even look at the transcript? again, that highlights that it
5:21 am
looks like this was treated different than any other case, and that's what's so frustrating, i think, to the american people. >> congressman jim jordan with those tough questions yesterday. we know you have to get back to work. we appreciate you stopping by. >> you bet. donald trump under fire for what he said about the court justice ruth bader ginsburg. her mind is shot. go ahead and resign, he says. it's easy to love your laxative when that lax loves your body back. only miralax hydrates, eases and softens to unblock naturally, so you have peace of mind from start to finish. love your laxative. miralax.

tell me what it's like to head this new court where you're dealing with domestic violence cases of day. >> this was brought out by the galena komar case, and the judge that handled that case was drummed out of the court system. there was a need for that. in the book i start talking about statistics that happened pre-o.j. simpson, because people think, oh, domestic violence started with o.j. simpson. it didn't. it was in epidemic proportion before that. >> you talked about statistics. in 2014, there were over 634,000 cases of domestic violence with an intimate partner. women between the ages of 18 and 24 are most commonly abused and only 34% of people who are injured receive medical care for their injuries. is that because they have such a fear for their abuser they don't want to come forward? >> that's true, but believe it
5:27 am
or not, since 2010, the stat x statistics have actually gone down a little bit, and i think that's because the hospitals and the courts and attorneys have been trained a little bit. the hospital will set the abuse apart for the patient so they won't lie about what happened. >> there have been some high-profile cases recently from chris brown, johnny manziel. we see it more in the media today, it's more openly condemned today. do you feel the stigma has eroded and folks are coming out more? >> they are, but people should be aware we can't criticize women for not leaving their abuser. a woman is 75% more apt to be killed when preparing to leave or leaving an abuser, so they may be smarter than us. they may want to know where their next attack is coming from also. >> tell us what you would do in front of the court. >> when i would a rainarraign a
5:28 am
defendant, i would say the court is looking at you, mr. smith. i would tell them, you must stay away from mrs. smith, her place of employment, any other place she may happen to be. when i stay away, i mean no letters, postcards, i'm sorry, and if you go to her house for dinner tomorrow night, it will be the most expensive dinner you'll eat because you'll be eating the dinner the following day in jail. >> wow. i can tell you've said that before. >> every time. every time. >> judge john leventhal. read his new book. thank you for being with me. a peaceful protest in dallas extremely troubling to one important demographics: mothers. that's why some of them are even considering changing their vote. you see this panel right here. a good-looking group. security moms here to discuss their biggest concerns, next. pokemon go fever is dripping
5:29 am
in the country. some places are going too far. the memorials, parks, holocaust museum telling them to stay out this morning. & in a world held back by compromise, businesses need the agility to do one thing & another. only at&t has the network, people, and partners to help companies be... local & global.

5:32 am
of course, it seems like everybody is still talking about the new pokemon go game. yeah, i love it, too. some highway safety officials are warning teenagers to not play pokemon go while driving. then when the teenagers pull over, the officials drive ahead of them and catch all the pokemons. suckers! >> you have to know the game, which you were explaining to me earlier. >> it's crazy how popular this thing is. >> why is it so popular?
5:33 am
>> because it gets kids outside of the house and they're using their phones with augmented reality. they have to walk around town, basically, the parks, and capture these pokemon. you build up points and you're competing with friends and so forth. >> are you out of the house if you're staring at your screen? >> at least you're getting fresh oxygen. >> heather has more about this latest trend, guys. >> clayton was explaining to me exactly how it works, so some parents probably wondering the same thing. here's a story developing as a result of this popular fad. don't come here. pokemon go players are now getting a stern warning from arlington national cemetary and the 9/11 memorial in new york. the somber landmarks both stops -- can you believe that, they're stops people can go to in the wildly popular game. the stops encourage people to explore their neighborhood, including historical places, but arlington tweeting out this, quote, we do not consider
5:34 am
pokemon go to be an appropriate decorum on the grounds of arlington national cemetary. the holocaust museum also trying to remove themselves as a stop in the game. donald trump is now doubling down in a war of words with justice ruth bader ginsburg. she said, quote, he is a faker. he has no consistency about him. he says what's comes into his head at the moment. he really has an ego. she also threatened to move overseas if he is elected president. trump firing back last night, quote, justice ginsburg of the u.s. supreme court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me. her mind is shot -- resign! two boy scouts arrest bid trying to save a bald eagle. they were warned by their boss not to touch the animal. what did they do?
5:35 am
they rushed it to the vet. officials in canada said the workers broke federal law. it's hard to say which law since the bald eagle was removed from the endangered species list in 2013. watch as one of the suspects tossed from the car about 30 feet in the air. they chased the suspects in a stolen suv, the chase reaching speeds of more than 100 miles per hour. those are your headlines. ainsley, let's head over to you. >> thanks so much, heather. in the wake of the horrific ambush down in dallas, texas, gun violence, threats against americans, and attacks against police are at the forefront of so many of our minds, and there is one demographic where this is hitting close to home. we're talking about young mothers raising young men and young women. these concerns have given rise to what we call security moms, not soccer moms.
5:36 am
formerly soccer moms, these moms have made security a top priority. have beth, kathy, courtney heir benana, colleen, and debra. also joining us for this conversation is our expert. he is the author of "defeating jihad." there is his book if you want to pick it up. dr. gorka, mothers are concerned that they're taking their kids to concerts and soccer tournaments, and they're worried about their kids' safety, sending them even to school or going to churches. >> look at the last two years. if you look at the terrorist threat, what do we have? we don't have giant spectaculars like 9/11. we're not going to fly planes into buildings or the pentagon. what are the terrorists doing? they're finding high concentrations of unarmed civilians. in paris it was a rock concert
5:37 am
with an american band, it was a restaurant in tel aviv. in orlando we have a nightclub. on top of that, what do we have? we have the targeting of those people who are supposed to protect us, our peace officers, five peace officers shot down. so this is going to be a crucial year in terms of national security and how these ladies, i like to call these beautiful ladies the worryiers of fox. >> i see if you have a gun, you're in control. the way to stop a bad guy with a gun is to have a good guy with a gun. >> or a good gal. >> or a good gal, yes. what ccerns me is how lawlessness is increasing in the land. and as a result, the love of many is growing cold. that's concerning. and i see it from a perspective that we have a spiritual problem in america. >> yeah.
5:38 am
>> we need to come back to god. because he is ready and willing, and he alone, jesus christ, is able to heal this land. >> she's also a minister. and you're seaying amen to that. you agree with her. >> i do agree with that, and my condolences and prayers go out to the ones who have lost loved ones, especially the police officers, and the bible says no man had a greater love than laying down their lives for our friends. >> what do you think about the way police have been treated by certain individuals lately? >> even in a time of mourning when we would expect nothing less than hope from our president, it turned into a political conversation. i believe he said everyone is a racist. he even touched on gun control. it was disappointing to see that happen. it was great to see president bush, but disappointed, certainly. >> kathy touched on that, we were talking about that during a
5:39 am
commercial, and you said the democratic party especially has a false narrative about the black community. >> it's a very sensitive subject to have in our culture today, because we're ruled by emotions in so many regards. but as a black woman, clearly, with black children, a black husband from a black family, obviously black lives matter to me, right? and i'm sure it matters to everyone in this room right now as well. but that's not the narrative that the black lives matter movement and many in the democratic party is espousing. instead their pushing a false narrative, i believe, that black people are victims and our primary issue in the black community surrounds social issues and racism. and those two things, racism and social justice issues, are not what's plaguing and destroying the black community. it is the breakdown of families within the black community. when you have 75% of black children growing up in a
5:40 am
fatherless home that's three out of four, that is the reason. even obama himself quoted that a child growing up without a father is 20% more likely to end up in prison. not the 4% of police officers in 2015 who shot a black person who was unarmed, not the 4%, but it's 20% more likely to end up in prison, not because of a white police officer but because of the breakdown of the home. >> you talked about justice. you're a legal professional, beth. you're in the court most days. >> yes, i am. >> is this just a law and order issue? is the system breaking down? what's your observation? >> well, i think it's both. and my biggest concern -- well, first of all, i'm very saddened for the events that have happened over the last week. obviously our whole country is mourning. and basically i'm concerned about the views that our nation as a whole has right now on the
5:41 am
sanctity of life. i believe it's a human life issue. i personally believe we're all created in the image of god and it doesn't matter what color our skin is. it just doesn't matter. we're all created by god and we're all equal. and i believe that the violence that has erupted across this country, there is some real issues here. and we need leadership and we need an administration that is going to, first of all, identify those issues. a lot of them, my good friend now kathy, has just said, and also that they're going to have real solutions and will be able to implement these solutions as we move forward. >> we would really expect the president to be condemning black lives matter. >> yes, because what happened in dallas, it was not an attack against the law enforcement profession, it was an attack against all americans. and we need to look at it from that perspective. i was just reading to my children a quote from john adams who said, our constitution, our
5:42 am
way of life, america only exists, is only made for moral and religious people, people who understand the difference between right and wrong, good and bad, and so when we have people trying to make up laws as they go with their pen and their phone, or when they're out here promoting and encouraging tyranny on the streets, we are destroying america. america does not exist without the constitution and without laws. >> the president validates that domestic terrorist group, quite frankly, because they're using violence to have political, idealogical, religious gains. >> i know that's a big issue when people are going to the polls, terrorism and keeping our country safe. who are you going to vote for? who is voting for donald trump? >> wow. >> they say that great is the nation that fears the lord, and i am such a believer in that. but also we need someone who is going to make america great again, and i'm looking forward to that. >> what's the number one issue for november. is it national security?
5:43 am
is it economics? >> i believe it's national security and safety. >> we can't separate the two. >> when we asked you guys to come on, we were looking for moms that security was the number one concern. we never asked you guys who you were voting for. and i believe a few weeks ago when we interviewed you, we put you on the spot. >> people are angry, and like donald trump or not, he is -- he resonates. >> thank you, ladies. >> very powerful. thank you, ladies. donald trump has said it over and over on the campaign trail. >> we will build the wall, believe me 100%, we're building the wall. if i win, we're going to build the wall. we're going to have an amazing border. we're going to build the wall, don't worry. who is going to pay for the wall? who is going to pay? >> and despite his critics' best efforts, he is one step closer to that goal this morning. we're live in cleveland to explain that, coming up next. do you want fries with your
5:44 am

5:49 am
wall? >> just days, the republican national convention's plans for that wall are now in writing. >> peter doocy with the latest. hey, peter. >> reporter: good morning. the trump campaign is not putting a ton of pressure on the platform committee to put the latest wishes in writing, but the people updating it is following his issue about the signature issue, building a wall. it says, quote, we support building a wall along our southern border and protecting all ports of entry. the border wall must cover the entirety of the southern border and must be sufficient to stop both vehicular and pedestrian traffic. also notable, there is no mention in the platform of making mexico pay for the wall, but its inclusion in the platform is still one of the highlights from this week's
5:50 am
meeting. they say it shows republicans are changing slightly to accommodate the person who is set to accept their nomination next week. >> the idea of a border fence has been in our platform for many, many years, and just changing the word from fence to wall is what they did, and maybe it was a little hat tip to donald trump on that issue, and that's fine. it's something the parties had in the platform for a long time. >> reporter: so with the platform committee's work basically done, it shifts to the rules committee. that's where they are trying to unbind themselves so they don't have to support trump even if he won their state or primary caucus, but critics don't think that little revolt has much to it. back to you. >> thanks, peter. we're celebrating national french fry day on the plaza. >> let's check in with martha. >> it sounds yummy. thanks, you guys. swing state polls in july.
